Hamas, EU and Iran

Zionist prime minister Netanyahu has blasted European Union for taking off Palestinian resistance Hamas which rules Gaza Strip from its terrorist list.

In Luxemburg the European court removed Hamas from the list of terrorist organizations, Hamas that has committed countless war crimes and countless terror acts,” Netanyahu said on Wednesday.

He went on to say that “it seems too many in Europe, on whose soil six million Jews were slaughtered, have learned nothing.”

I suppose Netanyahu really believe that it were Muslims and not the Frankist Jews who killed millions of people during the WW II.

Hamas officials have called EU decision a “moral victory” even though its European assets will remain frozen.

The overwhelming majority of countries in the world consider Hamas a legitimate resistance movement. The pro-Zionist regimes in North America and Europe, however, have designated it a ‘terrorist organization’ despite the UN Charter and International Law recognizing resistance to foreign occupation as legitimate. These regimes have done so to support the Zionist colonial settler entity so that it will remain a dagger in the heart of Islam. Zionists living in these societies are well known blackmailers.

A Hamas delegation visited Iran last week and met with senior Iranian officials over widening cooperation. Politburo member of the Palestinian Hamas Movement Khalil al-Haya underlined that the resistance movement is resolved to reinvigorate relations with Tehran.

Earlier this week, Politburo Chief of the Palestinian Resistance Movement Hamas Khaled Mashaal underlined that Hamas is determined to broaden relations with Tehran. Mashaal pointed to the Iran-Hamas relations, and said, “We have never cut our relations with Iran; we have historic ties and Iran has supported Hamas for many years.” Mashaal also noted that he would pay a visit to Iran soon.

On December 17, 2014, professor Alon Ben-Meir posted on his personal blog that Netanyahu has shattered Israel’s world image by propagating lies about Palestinians and other neighboring countries. He also claimed that an independent Palestinian state next to Israel would never pose a threat to Israel but would be a good thing for the peaceful survival of the Israeli Jews.

Ending the occupation and establishing a Palestinian state is certainly good for the Palestinians, but it serves Israel’s needs and future wellbeing far more so than the Palestinians. Every Israeli who bought into the argument that the Palestinians are an irredeemable foe must now reexamine the falsity of this belief. The old and tired narratives Netanyahu and his emissaries keep promulgating about how untrustworthy the Palestinians are – about their bad intent, about the Gaza experience, about the Palestinians’ perpetual hatred, about their long-term strategy to destroy Israel, and about Israel’s constant and grave security concerns – no longer resonate,” Ben-Meir says.

Argentine Jew Author: Israel must negotiate with Hamas

There is no point in Israel refusing to negotiate with Hamas or to acknowledge a unity government. No, Israel must listen to those Palestinians who are in a position to speak with one tongue,” Daniel Barenboim, celebrated Argentine Jewish pianist, conductor and author of five books, UK’s Guardian, July 24, 2014. Barenboim holds citizenship of Argentina, Spain, Israel and Palestine. He lives in Berlin. Last year, Sir David Frost interviewed Barenboim for Al-Jazeera. watch it below.

Professor Yeshavahu Leibowitz (Hebrew University, Jerusalem) is considered an authority on Jewish Shari’ah (Halacha). He was against the continued Jewish occupation of Palestinian Territories since June 1967. He even coined the term “Judeo-Nazism” for Israeli occupation of Gaza, West Bank, East Jerusalem and Golan Heights.

In August 2014, Dr. Richard Falk, former UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) envoy for the Palestine Occupied Territories, said that Israel cannot achieve peace by excluding Hamas from peace negotiations.

Israeli Hebrew novelist A.B. Yehoshua, said at the Jewish New Republic magazine that it’s time Israeli government stop calling Hamas as “terrorist” and instead call it an “enemy”.

Let us not forget: Palestinians living in Gaza are our permanent neighbors, and we are theirs. We will never halt the bloody destruction by talking of “terror”. It will require negotiation, or a war against a legitimate “enemy”,” said Yehoshua.

In August 2014, William Morris, secretary-general, London-based Next Century Foundation in an interview with Iran’s Press TV said that “West needs to start negotiating with Hamas” for Israel’s survival.

Professor Jerome Slater (State University of New York, Buffalo) in an Op-Ed at pro-Israel Christian Science Monitor (January 7, 2013) wrote that “Israel’s ‘self-defense’ argument against Hamas holds no water’.”

Israel is not defending its homeland against unprovoked attack. Rather it’s “defending” a non-existent right to continue its occupation (direct or indirect) and repression of Palestinians – and that’s what provokes Palestinian from Gaza,” said Slater.

The Western and Israeli leaders never stop urging Palestinians to end their armed resistance in favor of Gandhi-style nonviolent struggle for their rights, which the World Zionist movement leaders rejected when suggested by Gandhi in 1938. Slater is of the opinion that a “nonviolent struggle has a zero chance to succeed, for Israel has either repeatedly ignored it or suppressed it, often meeting demonstraters (including Israelis) with beatings, rubber bullets, and sometimes real bullets“.

Israel Firsts Senators Lindsey Graham and John Cornyn had accused the “fired” US defense secretary Chuck Hagel for urging Israel to negotiate with Hamas in good faith.

Hamas refuses to give-up armed resistance

Israel wants the destruction of Hamas, intimidation of those who vote for it and the institution of a puppet regime that is twin of Palestinian equivalent of the Judenrat that exists on the West Bank. This aim is supported by Washington, Riyadh, and Cairo, as well,” claims Tariq Ali, British socialist author and film-maker.

What (PA President) Mahmoud Abbas does, he does it for his Israeli and US masters he does in plain sight,” says Jeff Blankfort, an American Jewish writer, editor and photographer.

Gaza prime minister Ismail Haniyeh said early this week that Palestinian resistance groups in Gaza will not abandon armed resistance against the Zionist entity. “The weapon of resistance is as sacred as the sacredness of Palestinian cause and land,” he said.

Haniyeh said he would be willing to disarm local armed groups if Israel was also stripped of its weapons, but 57 percent of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank oppose Israeli efforts to disarm the strip, according to a recent survey – while another 86 percent support launching rockets from Gaza if the Israeli-Egyptian blockade continues.

Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other armed resistance groups claimed victory over Israel during the recent 50-day war. Israeli air-force killed 2,310 Palestinians mostly civilians including 540 children. Israel lost 76 soldiers and 10 civilians. Nearly 110,000 people remain displaced in Gaza.

Last month, Mahmud Abbas, whose mandate as PA President expired in January 2009, said that if he got re-elected in the planned next election in the PA Territories, he will unite all armed resistance groups under a central command – thus demilitarizing them. However, some senior leaders of both Hamas and Islamic Jihad have refused to agree with Abbas.

Khaled Meshaal, the political head of Hamas has changed his tone since he left Damascus and took residence in pro-USrael Qatar. Islamic Jihad, on the other hand, has maintained its ties with Iran and Hizbullah.

In 2009, Medea Benjamin, Jewish founder of Woman Say Not to War, lead a 66-person humanitarian delegation from ten countries to Gaza after the horrific 23-day Israeli war on Gaza Strip in 2008-09 that left over 1,400 Palestinian, mostly civilians, dead. Along with another Jewish member of the delegation, Benjamin met a group of senior Hamas leaders, who told her: “We have no problems with the Jewish religion; in fact, we find it very close to Islam. Our problem is with Israeli policies, not Jews.”

I realized that Hamas, like any political organization, is made up of a variety of individuals with different political perspectives. Some are hard-line Islamists, antagonistic toward the West and bent on the destruction of Israel. Others, like the ones we met with, had earned university degrees in Western universities, appreciated many aspects of American and European culture, and believed they could negotiate with the Israelis,” Medea Benjamin said.

Hamas deputy foreign minister Dr. Ahmed Yousef gave Benjamin a letter to be delivered to Barack Obama for his help for implementing an unbiased policy toward Israel-Palestine conflict.

I found it astonishing that these representatives of a government that had been subject to a recent and brutal Israeli assault, financed in large part with US tax dollars, were reaching out to President Obama with such a well-reasoned plea to intervene. Even more astonishing is the fact that they gave the letter to me – a feminist, Jewish, American woman – to try to deliver to the administration. Back in Washington DC, I delivered the letter but despite my insistence, the Obama administration refused to even acknowledge its receipt, much less send a reply. It was yet another loss for the Hamas moderates and a win for those who saw armed resistance as the only way to win concessions from Israel,” Benjamin wrote in a post at pro-Israel Jewish news website Mondoweiss on August 5, 2014.

Israeli “Vehicle Terrorism” backfires

Terrorist attacks on Israelis are justified because Palestinians living under Israeli occupation since 1967 have a right to resist,” Larry Derfner, columnist at Israeli The Jerusalem Post wrote in August 2011. The newspaper fired Derfner even after the coward Jew apologized for making the ‘political incorrect” statement. Derfner is co-founder of +972 Jewish news website.

On Wednesday, a Palestinian driver Ibrahim al-Akari, was shot by Israeli soldiers after he ran over a group of Israeli soldiers crossing a road in occupied  East Jerusalem near border police headquarter. He killed a Jew soldiers while wounding nine others before he was shot dead. One of the wounded soldiers is in critical condition.

None of Palestinian resistance groups have taken responsibility for the hit and run which seems to be in response to several acts of “vehicle terrorism” carried out by illegal Jew settlers during the last month.

Israeli police claims al-Akari was member of Hamas, which denied its involvement in the hit-and-run case. However, it did praise al-Akari for his action against the settlers’ “vehicle terrorism” and Jews’ praying in the  sacred compound of Al-Aqsa Mosque, which was later closed to Muslim worshippers first time in ten years by Israel occupation military force.

Al-Akari, whose blood was shed in Jerusalem, rose up for his people, his city, Jerusalem, and the al-Aqsa Mosque,” Hamas statement said.

The incident comes two weeks after Palestinian Abdul-Rahman Shaludi rammed his car into Israeli settlers, injuring six and killing one. Shaludi was also shot dead.

Meanwhile, an Israeli settler driving through the occupied West Bank city of Beit Jala hit a Palestinian with his car on Tuesday, witnesses told Ma’an.

Locals said Ibrahim Hamdan was on his way to work when he was hit by an Israeli settler vehicle, lightly injuring him.

The sources said the settler appeared to hit Hamdan “deliberately.”

Hamdan was taken to a hospital in Beit Jala for treatment, locals said, without providing further details.

Hate crimes by Israeli Jews against Muslim and Christian Palestinians, referred to as price tag attacks, are common in the West Bank, and are rarely investigated or prosecuted by Israeli police.

According to the Palestine Authority (PA) monthly report, 10 Palestinians were killed, including 4 children, in October.

The report said that in the occupied West Bank, Israeli forces killed Baha Bader (13 years) in Beit Liqya, Abdul Rahman Shaludi in occupied Jerusalem, Orwa Hammad (14 years) in Silwad, Mutaz Hijazi Jerusalem, and Enas Shawkat (5 years) after run over by Israeli settler in Sinjil.

Moreover, the report said that 147 Palestinians were injured by Israeli forces attacks, including 6 who were deliberately hit by Israeli settler vehicles, 4 of which are children under 17.

Other than the hit and run incidents, 12 children under the age of 16 were injured.

On October 30, an Israeli settler ran over and injured a 13-year-old Palestinian boy south of Nablus.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settler activities in the northern West Bank, said at the time that 13-year-old Ibrahim Odeh was knocked down by the car on the Huwwara road.

On October 19, a five-year-old Palestinian girl, Einas Khalil, was run over and killed by a settler near the central West Bank town of Sinjil.

On September 29, an Israeli settler ran over and injured 6-year-old young Palestinian girl Islam Basim al-Amour in al-Dairat area south of Hebron.

On August 7, an 8-year old Palestinian girl was also run over by Israeli settlers near Hebron and moderately injured.

A week after that incident, on August 14, a 23-year-old Palestinian man was run over and killed by a settler car in the central West Bank.

In all incidents, witnesses and residents said they believed Israeli settlers deliberately hit Palestinians.

Back in 2013, an Israeli settler ran over a seven-year-old boy with his car as he walked to school in the West Bank town of Abu Dis.

Hamas leader speaks to the ‘Wailing Wall’

togetherwearunited[1]This post is not about the so-called Holy Wailing Wall aka Temple Mount, which several historian have claimed to be foundation of an old Roman fortress. It’s also not about the Zionist entity’s plan to demolish Al-Aqsa Mosque built on top the fortress nearly 1200 years ago. The Israeli plan is supported by the inventor of the ‘Six Million Died’ myth, Elie Wiesel through his illegal Jew settlers’ group Elad.

This post is about Qatar-based Hamas’ political Guru Khaled Meshaal, who spoke to Adam Ciralsky (Zionist Jew), former CIA employee turned journalist. The interview was published by Vanity Fair on October 21, 2014.

I never understood why some anti-Zionist Muslim leader would be so naïve to agree giving an interview to a pro-Israel Zionist journalist. It would be far better if this leader visits East Jerusalem and talk to the Holy Wailing Wall, as I did in 1995. Don’t such leaders realize that in their bid to capture wider audience, they always end up victims of Zionists’ distorted version of the message? I never approved Ahmadinejad, Rouhani, Nasrallah, Dr. Morsi or Chavez awarding interview to professional Zionist liars.

Having said that, let me review Meshaal-Cirasky lengthy interview in which Cirasky tried his best to confuse Meshaal and cornered him to spill some ‘antisemtic beans. For example, Cirasky grilled Meshaal to admit that Hamas fighters kidnapped and killed three Jew settlers without mentioning that it was Meshaal who was almost killed as result of Israeli Mossad assassination attempt on his life in Amman (Jordan) in 1997 on direct orders from Netanyahu.

American Jewish investigative journalist Max Blumenthal reported in July that bodies of three Jew settlers were found by Israeli internal security force even before Netanyahu blamed Hamas of kidnapping them. This means, it was a hoax created by the Zionist regime to counter its internal political tug-of-war, which enabled it to wage a 50-day brutal war against 1.7 million non-Jews in Gaza.

Cirasky accused Hamas for digging tunnels under Israeli towns in order to kill Jews. In response Meshaal asked him if that was true then how come Hamas fighters never used these tunnels to attack Israeli civilians before or during the recent war.

In response to his views on US-led ‘Alliance of Absurds’ against ISIS in Syria, Meshaal said: “I spent some of the most important years of my life in Syria. A big part of Hamas’s course was shaped there, and I am pained by what the country is going through today. Much of what’s happening does not serve the interests of regional countries and their people.”

Cirasky asked Meshaal that after huge human and infrastructure losses, does he believe that Hamas won against Israel? Meshaal responded: “The steadfastness showcased by Gaza is a victory. It sent a message to the world that there is something called the Palestinian cause that the occupation must be brought to an end, that the settlements’ expansions must stop, and that the blockade on Gaza must be lifted.”

In response to Cirasky curiosity how Meshaal views Netanyahu as a person, Meshaal replied: “I don’t have a message for Netanyahu, because he is a criminal, and he is responsible for the war on Gaza. He and the Israeli leadership committed war crimes against our people in Gaza. But I have two messages, one to the world’s great powers, and especially the United States: that its global dominance puts political and moral responsibilities on its shoulders. On top of these responsibilities is the need to put an end to the longest, or let me say, the last occupation in the world, and that is the Israeli occupation. This is a moral responsibility.”

The second message is to the Israeli people. Your leadership is lying to you, and is leading you to failed adventures. War crimes are being perpetrated against the Palestinian people in your name. This will not provide you with any security, peace, or stability. It will not secure any future for you,” Meshaal added.

I believe Israeli professor Neve Gordon, here, and American writer and radio talk-show host Mark Glenn, here, described Netanyahu far better than Khaled Meshaal.

67% Christians trust Hizbullah military power

A recent survey conducted by the Beirut Center for Research and Information revealed that 67% of Lebanon’s Christians believe that country’s Islamic resistance Hizbullah is protecting Lebanon from ISIL terrorists and Israel.

The survey revealed that 67 percent of Christians support Hizbullah’s military actions in Syria, in comparison to only 39 percent in June 2013 and 53 percent in February 2014.

Moreover, 58 percent of those surveyed are against replacing members of Hizbullah with international peacekeeping forces, such as INIFIL, to counter attacks by extremist groups on the eastern borders with Syria.

The survey also revealed that 65 percent of those surveyed do not believe that the threat of ISIL attacking Lebanon is in retaliation for Hizbullah’s presence in Syria, contrary to what certain political factions believe.

Furthermore, 73 percent of those surveyed said they “do not believe that the US-led airstrikes in Iraq and Syria aim at eradicating ISIS.”

On Monday, Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah warned ISIL terrorists operating along Syrian-Lebanon border to retreat or die.

Nasrallah said the militants on the outskirts of Ersal and Qalamoun will either die or surrender. “The takfiris are incapable of invading the Bekaa Valley because they are surrounded and trapped,” Nasrallah asserted. “These militants only have two options: either to die from cold or leave in civilian clothing to Lebanon and Syria.”

Nasrallah said “with every passing day, we become more certain that our fighting in Syria is for the protection of Lebanon.”

“The Resistance axis is in a triumphant position today,” Nasrallah said, adding that “when you thwart the enemy’s plans you triumph, knowing that it will be a long fight before the final victory.”

Nasrallah sees it as a “golden opportunity to end the takfiri’s project.”

According to Nasrallah, the war in Syria does not aim at toppling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but at redrawing the map of the region, stressing that ISIS serves the interests of the US and Turkey.

In this context, Nasrallah noted that the international coalition’s attacks against ISIS are “hemming in” the group by establishing red lines, near Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Erbil, that are not to be crossed, adding that all the US-led airstrikes on ISIS do not amount to even one day of airstrikes launched by Israel on Lebanon in 2006.

Nasrallah said the US is using ISIS to intimidate and manipulate the countries in the Middle East in order to impose its dominance on the region, especially in Syria and Iraq, adding that Turkey will not join the coalition or provide assistance for Syrian Kurds in Kobane unless it is granted substantial strategic or geographical gains that might include taking full control of Aleppo.

In April 2012, Sheikh Nasrallah was interviewed by Julian Assange for RT. During the interview Nasrallah called Israel an illegal entity built on Palestinian land. And just becuase the Jews are occupying the land by force – it doesn’t make it their country under international and moral laws.

Andrew McGregor in an article at Jewish The Jamestown Foundation on April 18, 2014 said that Syrian army was able to defeat anti-Assad rebels only when Hizbullah fighters intervened in Syria along Lebanese border. He also claimed that Hizbullah military success in Syria sent a powerful message to Israel that it’s now capable of inflicting more damage to Israeli forces than it did in 2006.

Since Hizbullah fighters were able to force Israeli occupation forces and their Christian Phalagist allies to withdraw from south Lebanon in 2000 after waging an eighteen-year arms resistance, the organization changed from a Shia religious-social organization into national defenders. In 2006, when Hizbullah humiliated Jewish army and its western supporters during the 34-day war, it won the hearts of all patriotic Lebanese, Shias, Sunnis, Christians and Druze.

Watch below, Lebanon’s top female singer Julia Boutros showing her Christian love for Hizbullah.

Israeli analyst: A strong Hizbullah is good for Israeli Jews

Daniel Sobelman, former Arab affairs correspondent for Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz received his PhD from Hebrew University, Jerusalem, for a thesis focusing on Hizbullah’s military resistance against the Jewish army during 1993-2006. Currently he is doing postdoctoral research at Harvard.

On October 6, 2014, Israeli news website Al-Monitor publish Sobelman’s article entitled ‘Israel, Hizbullah recalibrate their mutual deterrence’ in which he claimed that the stronger Hizbullah gets militarily, its strength will act as a deterrent against Israeli army, which would think twice before starting a new war with Hizbullah.

Sobelman said Gen. Benny Gantz’s threat on October 3, “We will take Lebanon and knock it back 70 to 80 years”, a wishful thinking, citing Hizbullah fighter’s recent bombing attack on an Israeli tank inside Israeli-occupied Shebaa Frams, which wounded three Israeli soldiers inside the tank.

Much like the Cold War, Israel-Hizbullah balance of deterrence is calculated, terrifying and mutual. Hizbullah is able to credibly claim that it will exact unbearable price from Israel in any future war and deny it the option of claiming a crushing victory,” wrote Sobelman.

In fact, Hizbullah denied Israel that option even after the 34-day war in 2006, according to Alastair Crooke and Mark Perry.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad are much weaker Islamic resistance groups than Hizbullah. Hamas is governing a ‘mini state’, and thus comes under the thumbs of international bullies (the US, EU and UN). Contrary to that, Hizbullah’s military wing is independent of Lebanese government or it ‘paper army’. Furthermore, Hamas doesn’t control Palestinian Authority (PA) or other Palestinian resistance groups. Hizbullah, on the other hand, is united under the leadership of Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah.

The Zionist regime, based on the above observation, could learn a lesson that if it failed to “destroy” Hamas during the recent 50-day war, how it expects to achieve that miracle against Hizbullah?

Another Harvard Jew expert on Hizbullah, Aaron Magid claimed at  Israeli news website +972 on October 8, 2014 that after suffering the huge losses in human lives and infrastructure during the 2006 war, Hizbullah is not interested in starting a new war with Israel.

In this devastating war, over 1,000 Lebanese (1,300 civilians according to UNHRC) were killed including hundred of Hizbullah fighters (according to an Israeli source 49 Hizbullah fighters were martyred while 139 Jewish soldiers were killed). Severely damaging much of country’s infrastructure. Israel also left almost one million unexploded ordinances in southern Lebanon, more than one for each of the area’s 650,000 residents,” boasted Magid.

Magid, as a hardcore Israeli hasbara idiot, did not miss the opportunity to blame Hizbullah for Mossad’s flase flag operations in Bulgaria and Argentina.

One has to forgive such Zionist ‘experts’, raised on Talmudic genocide and Jewish vengeance that military strength is the best deterrent. Hizbullah with only guns and rockets had already inflicted military humiliation to world’s “fourth most powerful army” in 2000 and 2006. Hizbullah still doesn’t posses Israel’s tanks, armored vehicles, F16s, nuclear-tipped missile, nuclear-submarines, Iron Dome, etc. What Hizbullah has but Israelis will never expect to have, is brave, pious, uncorrupt and down-to-earth leadership.

Earlier this year, Gen. Gantz added Hizbullah on Isreal’s chart of existential threat.
