O’Canada: Jewish Lobby against Al-Quds Day

I invite Muslims all over the globe to consecrate the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan – which is a ‘Day of Fate’ and which could also become the day on which the fate of the Palestinian people might be determined – as Quds Day, and proclaim the international solidarity of Muslims in support of legitimate the Muslim people (of Palestine),” Imam Khomeini said on August 7, 1979.

On July 26, 2014, over 20,000 Canadians Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs and Jews gathered at Queen Park, Toronto, to attend International Al-Quds Day rally (watch a video below).

In April 2015, various Jewish and Christian Zionist groups led by B’nai B’rith (Canada) started a vicious campaign against such huge pro-Palestine demonstration at the Queens Park. According to latest report by the Jewish media campaigners, the Queen Park has refused to issue a permit for the Al-Quds rally claiming it being anti-Israel under Harper’s new Hate Crime Law (C-51) – authored by the Jewish Lobby to protect the Zionist regime from genuine criticism (watch a video below).

In 2013, a similar demand by B’nai B’rith was rejected by David Joseph Levac (Jewish), Speaker Ontario Legislative Assembly, saying: “These groups are exercising their rights to assemble and freedom of speech and are not subjected to censorship by the Legislative Assembly, except to ensure that Canadian law and our guidelines are observed.” Read the rest here.

The last Friday of Islamic month of Ramadan (Fasting) was declared as the International Al-Quds Day by Imam Khomeini, the Leader of Islamic Revolution of Iran in 1979 to show support by the followers of all faiths for the recovery of Islam’s third most sacred city, Al-Quds (Jerusalem) after Makkah and Medinah. The first rally was carried out in Tehran in 1980, which drew close to one million people. Since then, gradually, it has become an international event. This year, the rallies are expected to be held in over 80 countries.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei and Iran’s president Sheikh Hasan Rouhani are expected to address world’s largest pro-Palestine rally in Tehran on the last Friday of the month of Ramadan.

Addressing the 2013 al-Quds rally in Tehran, then president-elect Hasan Rouhani, said: “In our region there’s been a wound for years on the body of the Muslim world under the shadow of the occupation of the holy land of Palestine and the beloved Al-Quds (Jerusalem).”

Ken Silverstein: Only Hizbullah can bring stability in ME

Nasrallah2[1]Ken Silverstein is an American Jewish journalist and author. As a typical American Jew, he believes that the so-called Jewish state of Israel has the right to exist. He also insists that some of his relatives were killed by Nazis, who had a significant numbers of Jews among them.

On June 10, 2015, in an Opinion Post at Jewish newspaper Observer, Silverstein committed some unforgiving sins; He praised Lebanese Islamic resistance group Hizbullah and called Jeffrey Goldberg, former Israeli prison-guard and follower of terrorist Rabbi Meir Kahane, a ‘myth maker and liar’.

Silverstein says that Hizbullah that has been shunned by Washington for decades for forcing occupying Jewish army to withdraw from South Lebanon in 2000, is ISIS’ main foe in Syria. This is another reason to keep Hizbullah a “terrorist organization” as ISIS/ISIL is a creation of the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Hizbullah in fact is a social, political, cultural and religious group with deep roots in Lebanese Shiites. Hizbullah’s armed wing is effectively Lebanon’s primary army,” wrote Silverstein.

Hizbullah began as a Shiite resistance group against Israeli occupation of South Lebanon in early 1980s. However, during its 18-year armed struggle against Jewish army and Christian collaborators, Lebanese Christians, Druzs and Sunnis joined the ranks of Hizbullah-led armed resistance. Hizbullah along with Amal represents 34% of Lebanese Shiite religious majority.

Silverstein who visited Lebanon last month, wrote: “I first traveled to Lebanon a decade ago and this was my third trip. I’ve always been warmly welcomed by Hizbullah officials and people on the street – primarily Shias, as I especially love being in the Dahieh, Beirut’s predominately Shia southern suburb. I have never encountered any hostility toward me as a Jew, though I have occasionally encountered some serious misperceptions about Jewish people. Instead, I found deep appreciation that I had come to Lebanon to spend time with Shias and Hizbullah, and to listen to their points of view,” says Silverstein.

During this last trip, I spent five nights at the home of my best friend in Beirut, Mostafa Nasser. His mother is buried in the same graveyard as Hadi Nasrallah – the eldest son of Hassan Nasrallah – who died in 1997, during an operation in which Hizbullah fighters killed about a dozen Israeli soldiers in a town in southern Lebanon,” says Silverstein.

During my first trip to the country, Mr. Nasser took me to hear Nasrallah speak during Ashura, the highest religious holiday for Shias, and introduced me to his family a few days later at his mother’s apartment. This was on the closing day of Ashura, when Nasrallah had also addressed a multitude of supporters in the Dahieh. At one point, Mr. Nasser’s sister joked, ‘Even though we chanted ‘Death to America’ today, you are always welcome in our home’,” wrote Silverstein.

I can understand why Lebanese Shias – and most of the country’s population – detest Israel for its repeated invasions of Arab land, and especially of Lebanese land. But I also support a Jewish state in the Middle East, which is a subject I discussed frequently during my recent travels with Hezbollah,” says Silverstein.

First of all, Israel is not a Jewish state. Most of its top leaders have been atheists including its first president Dr. Chaim Weizman and prime minister David Ben-Gurion. Second, it’s Israeli leaders who have threatened to wipe Lebanon off map. Hizbullah just wants Zionist regime to withdraw from Lebanese enclave of Shebaa Farms and stop military provocations against Lebanon.

Israel ‘holds secret talks with Hamas’ – Really!

bibi[1]In March 2015, Benjamin Netanyahu, raising his fist proclaimed that a Palestinian state will be established only on his dead body.

Last month, Israeli tanks shelled northern part of Gaza Strip following a claim by the Israel Occupation Force (IOF) that a rocket was fired from the Palestinian enclave toward the Jewish ‘promised land’.

While all this is happening, Israeli newspaper, Ha’aretz, reported on May 1, that Netanyahu regime is holding ‘secret talks’ with the Islamists ruling Gaza Strip, to hammer-out a long term ceasefire.

The purpose of this ‘ceasefire’ (3-5 years) will enable Netanyahu to wash his hands off the blood of 1200 Palestinian civilians including 534 children during last year’s Israeli assault on Gaza.

It will help (Netanyahu) him to portray last Summer war on Gaza as an ‘achievement’ instead of a controversial failure to disarm Hamas,” wrote Amos Harel.

Alex Fishman at the daily YNet caught a big fish on April 26. He claimed that Israeli airstrikes in response to rocket fire was mainly aimed at hitting the headlines (an not bombing some school full of Palestinian children). Why? Because Israeli government and Israeli military are holding ‘direct and indirect talks’ with Hamas to conclude a long-term ceasefire.

Dr. Yaron Friedman, however, let us have a peek in Netanyahu’s brain. According the ‘senior analyst’, Hamas became weak when it changed its alliance from Iran to Qatar over Syria. However, since the Israeli proxy ISIS has committed a second Nakba in Yarmouk, the Palestinian refugee camp on the outskirts of Damascus last month, Hamas is trying to renew its old friendship with Iran and Hizbullah – which is not good for Israel. Furthermore, Friedman claims that Iran has established its own Shia proxy in the West Bank, the Harakat as-Sabeereen Natzran Le-Palastin (The Patient Ones’ Movement for the Liberation of Palestine).

Despite its attempt to deny it, the group is affiliated with a radical sect of Shiite Islam, unlike the majority of Gaza which is predominantly Sunni. Thus, it seems Iran has already selected its choice to replace Hamas. As much as Hesn grows, the pro-Shiite forces in northern Gaza will grow accordingly,” claims Friedman.

I guess, Friedman never heard of Islamic Jihad, which played a major role during Israel’s 50-day war on Gaza Strip. Islamic Jihad never abandoned its ties with Iran or Hizbullah. Its leaders have never stopped visiting Tehran and Beirut since Khaled Meshaal left Damascus and took residence in Qatar over three years ago.

The Jewish Newsweek, has reported that Qatar and EU are proposing a long-term ceasefire between Israel and Hamas in order to keep Hamas out of Iranian influence. If Hamas leadership is smart, it should learn from its past mistakes. Both Qatar and European Union are no different than Mahmoud Abbas. They all want Palestinians to believe they never had a homeland.

A delegation headed by the PLO Executive Committee Member and Head of the PLO Department for Refugee Affairs Zakria al-Agha is already in Damascus to discuss with Syrian authorities to disarm PLF militia in al-Yarmouk camp so that Palestinian refugees are not dragged into Syrian conflict by the Al-Nusra or ISIL terrorist insurgency.

In late August 2014, the Jewish media reported Israel and PA president have reached a long-term ceasefire, which was projected as being blessed by Hamas that was not invited to the so-called ‘ceasefire negotiations’.

Hamas leaders in Gaza have refuted media reports on the so-called ‘secret talks’.

On May 2, the Times of Israel reported former US president Jimmy Carter said: Hamas leaders are committed to peace, but Netanyahu is not.

I bet my Canadian dollar this ‘smoking gun’ is another Zionist media ploy to discredit Hamas in the eyes of Arab population, and project PA president Mahmoud Abbas: Israel’s man in Ramallah, as the only negotiating partner with the Zionist entity.

Israeli ex-DM: Hizbullah not Iran is the ‘existential threat’

flag[1]Lithuanian-born US-Israel citizen and three-times Israel’s defense minister, Moshe Arens, 80, in an Opinion-Post in Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz (April 20, 2015) said that a future nuclear Iran will not pose existential threat to Israel as Iran would never dare to use its nuclear arsenal against a nuclear Israel. The real threat to Israel is from 100,000 rockets and missiles in the hands of Lebanese Islamic Resistance Hizbullah.

A nuclear weapon in the hands of the Iranians would have a large-scale, negative geopolitical effect on the Middle East, but the probability that the weapon would actually be used is extremely small. However, the physical damage caused if it were to be used is essentially infinite,” Arens said.

The US and Israeli intelligence agencies and IAEA agree there is no concrete proof that Iran is applying it nuclear program for military usage. However, warmongering Netanyahu had been crying wolf since 1996.

There are more than 100,000 rockets and missiles in the hands of Hizbullah in Lebanon all pointed at Israel, plus thousands of rockets in the hands of Hamas in Gaza. They put all of Israel’s civilian population at risk. Which is the greater danger,” Arens said.

On January 29, 2015, British Jewish investigative journalist, Ben Norton, wrote that independent investigation details Israel’s deliberate targeting of civilians in Gaza and Lebanon.

The probability of Hezbollah launching its reservoir of missiles and rockets against Israel is substantial. Whereas the Iranian nuclear threat has been occupying our civilian and military leadership these past years – and constant efforts have been made to slow down the Iranian nuclear program – excepting civil defense programs conducted by the Israel Defense Forces Home Front, Israel’s answer to the Hezbollah rocket and missile threat has been limited to a reliance on a dubious theory of deterrence. The opportunity to destroy Hamas’ rocket capability in Gaza was missed during Operation Protective Edge last summer,” Arens added.

On April 3, 2014, English composer, musician and singer, Brain Eno, in an open letter to Americans demonstrated Israeli fascism against Gaza population. Read Brain Eno’s response to Jewish-American author Peter Schwartz’s crying wolf, here.

In September 2009, the foreign minister, Ehud Barak, also claimed that the real threat to Israel is Hizbullah and not Iran.

Israeli army don’t fear Hizbullah rockets or missile – but Hizbullah intelligence, battle strategy and dedication to the cause – which it used to defeat Israel in 2006.

The long history of Israel-Hizbullah engagements suggests the parties can all too easily be drawn into confrontations that both might prefer to avoid,” Israeli journalist Dimi Reider wrote in Al-Jazeera English on January 29, 2015.

On February 9, 2015, Herbert London, president Hudson Institute, an Israeli hasbara group, wrote in Jewish Newsmax website: “Hizbullah is an enemy and a dangerous but it’s not prepared to fight. That may be a positive sign. The negative sign, of course, is that Hizbullah cannot determine its own fate.”

Some Israeli analysts have concluded that by using its 100,000-rocket arsenal, Hizbullah will destroy the Israeli infrastructure, power facilities, the residential buildings and military command headquarters – while causing vast cases of panic and exodus among the Zionist settlers along Lebanon-Israeli border and the Jewish occupied Golan Heights since 1967.

UK author: Israel is worst terrorist than Hamas

flag[1]UK journalist, author and feminist, Uganda-born Yasmin Alibhai-Brown crossed the Jewish Lobby ‘Red-Line’ on March 29, 2015. In a column at UK daily Independent, she called the Zionist entity a worst terrorist entity than Islamic resistance Hamas, ruling the Gaza Strip without Israel-US-EU blessings since 2006.

Hamas is a wicked and dangerous force in the Middle East. But Israel is now more wicked and dangerous,” she said.

Yasmin said that the Organized Jewry, despite the huge propaganda, doesn’t believe in the so-called ‘Freedom of Press’ when it involves criticism of Israel, Holocaust or Zionism. To prove her point, she mentioned its opposition to a debate at the Southampton University.

She also touched on the new Jewish religion Holocaust by saying: “Jewish thinkers and writers in the UK, US and Israel are now questioning the way the Holocaust has been cheapened and used to justify inhumane policies and actions of state of Israel.”

Yasmin, however, also praised her “lefty” Jewish friends, saying: “I wish more of us Muslims acknowledged Jewish men and women who, in spite of intolerable pressures, fight for Palestine, an ethical, just Israel and equality for all. I wish more Muslims were as fair-minded and honourable as these Jewish resistors.”

So you, see, she is not a “bigot” Muslim extremist who hates Jews for being Jewish. But, she did call the Zionist entity “apartheid”, “racist”, “anti-Jewish”, and “exploiter” of Holocaust in the past.

Yasmin is wrong to compare Hamas actions with the US pampered Israel Occupation Force (IOF). Hamas has every right under international laws to wage an armed resistance against Western colonists occupying its ancestral homeland. The Israeli army by its past savagery in Gaza and Lebanon has proved beyond any doubt that it’s the greatest terrorist organization in the Middle East.

Well, Yasmin is not the only who has crossed the ‘Red Line’. On April 1, 2015, BBC’s former ME correspondent in occupied Jerusalem (1995-2000), Jeremy Bowen, interviewed Hamas political leader Khaled Meshaal in Doha, Qatar, where he lives. During the interview, Meshaal accused Zionist prime minister Benjamin Netanyahy for killing Israel-Palestine peace process. The Jewish Lobby was all praise for Meshaal when he left Damascus to join the US-Israel led anti-Assad coalition a few years ago. Ironically, Meshaal’s gamble didn’t pay-off. Now, he is trying his best to return to the ‘Axis of Resistance’ (Iran-Syria-Hizbullah).

US didn’t make Iran the ‘regional power’

Despite that Washington holds more than $26 billion Iranian accounts frozen in US banks and ‘crippling sanctions’ against the Islamic Republic since 1980s – many western leaders believe that it’s America’s proxy wars for the Zionist entity in the Middle East that made Iran a regional power.

British foreign secretary, Lord David Owen, claimed in December 2011 that America’s removal of Saddam Hussein being a threat to Israel and subsequent nine-year occupation of Iraq made Iran regional super power.

On January 27, 2015, Patrick J. Buchanan made a similar claim. Buchanan is a known Islamophobe. He was Republican party’s presidential candidate twice, in 1992 and 1996. Though he was associated with Jewish-controlled MSNBC for nearly ten years – he got fired under pressure from Jewish groups for saying the truth in his 2012 book, Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2015? that Israel lobby AIPAC has too much power in the United States.

Buchanan wrote: Last week’s panic was triggered by the ouster of the pro-American Yemeni President by Houthi rebels. Suddenly, we heard wails that Iran has now captured four Arab capitals – Baghdad, Beirut, Damascus and Sanaa.

George Bush sent an army up to Baghdad (in 2003), ousted Iran’s greatest enemy, Saddam, disbanded his army, smashed his state, and brought to power a Shia majority with religious and historic bonds to Iran.

As for Damascus, Iran is but backing the Alawite Shia regime of Bashar Assad, whose father, Hafez Assad, was Bush I’s ally in Desert Storm.

As for Beirut, Hezbollah arose as a resistance movement when Ariel Sharon invaded Lebanon in 1982. Yitzhak Rabin would come to regret the consequences: “We let the Shia genie out of the bottle.”

But if al-Qaeda and ISIS are our real enemies now, Iran, Hezbollah, Assad and the Houthis are all de facto allies, fighting on the same side with us.

A closer look reveals a Shia minority in a Sunni-dominated world where Shia are despised heretics. And of all the terrorist organizations we have the most reason to fear and hate – al-Qaida, Islamic State, Ansar al-Sharia, Boko Haram — none is Shia, all are Sunni.

What about Iran’s drive to build a nuclear bomb? Well, Israel has 100-300 atom bombs. America has thousands. Iran’s Muslim neighbor Pakistan has scores. And Iran? She has no bomb.

Shamus Cooke, American writer and social service worker doesn’t agree with the US-chest-beating claim. On October 25, 2014, he wrote: Iran’s regional power is bolstered by its political and religious connections throughout the Middle East. Not only does Shia Muslim Iran exert automatic authority over Shia majority Iraq, but also over Shia Hezbollah and Shia-led Syria. This region-wide dynamic is often referred to as the “Shia Crescent.” There also exist sizable oppressed Shia populations in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Yemen, and Turkey that act as intrinsic political thorns in the sides of these Sunni sectarian governments, giving Iran a powerful political base in each case.

The truth is, it was the leadership of Imam Khomeini, Ayatullah Ali Khamenei, and Ahmadinejad that made Iran a regional power.

Imad Mughniyeh: The Lebanese ‘Superman’

Mughniyeh[1]On January 31, 2015, Jeff Stein at the Jewish Newsweek made Hizbullah commander Hajj Radwan Imad Mughniyeh, a Superman by accusing him of being the “mastermind” of almost every Israeli Mossad false flag operations in Middle East and Argentina.

The list of Mughniyeh’s glorious achievements include 1983 bombing of US embassy in Beirut, the 1985 hijacking of TWA flight 847, and the 1992 bombing of Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires and 1995 bombing of Jewish lobby headquarter AMIA in Buenos Aires.

Jeff Stein claimed that Imad Mughniyeh killed more Americans than the dreaded Al-Qaeda which is currently fighting US-Israeli proxy wars in Syria and Iraq. In other words, Mughniyeh had killed more than the 3,000 Americans killed by Israeli Mossad during its 9/11 terror attacks.

On January 30, 2015, Indian Hindu Ms Swati Sharma at Jewish Washington Post claimed that according to a new “revelation”, CIA helped Mossad in the assassination of Imad Mugneyah. Mughniyeh was martyred in a car bombing in Syria on February 13, 2008. Listen below what Mughniyeh think of his mission in life.

Imad Mughniyeh’s son Jihad Mughniyeh along with five other Hizbullah fighters were martyred by an Israeli missile inside Syrian part of Golan Heights last month.

Israeli press and Jewish Lobby in United States have slammed Obama administration over the ill-timing of report on CIA-Mossad collaboration in the assassination of Imad Mughniyeh. Most believe that it’s Obama administration’s slap on Boehner-Netanyahu face for challenging Obama’s policy toward Iran’s nuclear program.
