Israel to pay $856 million in damages to Lebanon

On December 19, The UN General Assembly overwhelmingly approved a resolution asking Israel to pay Lebanon over $850 million in damages for an oil spill caused by an Israeli air force attack on oil storage tanks during its 34-day military humiliation against Lebanese Islamic resistance Hezbollah in July 2006.

The assembly voted 170-6 in favor of the nonbinding resolution, with three abstentions. Israel, the United States, Canada, Australia, Micronesia and Marshall Islands voted “no.”

The resolution says “the environmental disaster” caused by the destruction of the tanks resulted in an oil slick that covered the entire Lebanese coastline and extended to the Syrian coastline, causing extensive pollution.

The assembly acknowledged the conclusions in a report by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon that studies show the value of damage to Lebanon amounted to $856.4 million in 2014.

Lebanese prime minister Tammam Salam has called it a symbolic victory as he knows that the UN is a toothless tiger when it comes to Israel.

Earlier this year, after two decades on arbitration, a Swiss court ordered Israel to pay $100 million to Iran – the value of a 50% stake in the Iran Eilat Ashkelon Pipeline Company. EAPC’s 242-kilometer pipeline in Israel’s southern Arava region contained about 800,000 tons of unrefined Iranian petroleum. That was worth $120 million at the time, when Iran broke its diplomatic relation with the Zionist entity in 1979 and about $400 million according to current prices. The petroleum in the pipeline was stolen by Israeli smugglers which Israeli regime pretended to be a “huge oil leak”. EAPC was established as Iran-Israel joint-venture under King Reza Shah regime in 1968. In 2004 Iran sued Israel for $800 million, an amount it said was equal to all the assets in the joint venture.

US-Israel-India behind Pakistan’s school massacre

On Tuesday, seven foreign-trained terrorists with suicide vests strapped on their bodies slipped into military-run public school in Peshawar city near Pakistan-Afghan border and committed the bloodiest terrorist attack Pakistan has seen in its history. They opened fire indiscriminately on boys, girls and teachers during nearly eight hour siege of the school compound.

By the time the military commandos killed the seven terrorists – they had killed 137 students and ten staff members including one lady teacher who was burned alive by the terrorists. Military has identified the terrorists being Uzbeks and not the Pushtun who make the bulk of Taliban movement fighting US-NATO occupation of Afghanistan.

Pakistani terrorist militant group Tehrik-e-Taliban (TTP) has taken credit for the massacre. The Jewish-controlled western mainstream media always try to associate these butchers with anti-Israel Afghan Taliban. However, both groups have totally different agenda. Afghan Taliban are fighting against the foreign occupation and are friendly toward Pakistan. Their leaders have condemned the terrorist attack. On the other hand, TTP wants to destroy Pakistan as a single nation. They are fighting Pakistan military to weaken it in line with Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (US National War Academy), a military analyst at the Pentagon, who proposed the Balkanization of the Middle East in his article titled Blood Borders – advocated the incorporation of the NWFP into Afghanistan and the creation of an independent Baluchistan, carved out of Baluch areas of Pakistan and Islamic Iran and protected by US-Israel. Pakistani Baluchistan is estimated to hold 25.1 trillion cubic feet of gas and 6 trillion barrels of oil. Read more here and here.

Pakistani jets and ground forces have killed 59 militants in a north-western tribal region near the Afghan border in retaliation to the school shooting, the army said on Friday.

Several Pakistani sources have blamed CIA-Mossad-RAW and Afghan intelligence agencies behind the terrorist attack on the school. On December 17, on Pakistan television, Dr. Hafiz Muhammad Saeed leader of Jamaat ud-Dawa, blamed India and its allies for the massacre.

On Wednesday, Pakistan’s prime minister Nawaz Sharif lifted ban on death penalty for terrorists as recommended by politicians, army and the religious leaders, which has been condemned by the so-called “humanitarian wars” leaders in the West. Death penalty is still practiced in several US states including Texas, Florida, California, South Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee.

On December 16, Tony Cartalucci, an investigative journalist wrote: “Attempts by the Western media to reduce this recent attack to mere “extremism,” preying on global audiences emotionally, provides impunity for the state-sponsors of the (Pakistani) Taliban – those funding, arming, and directing their operations across the region, and then benefiting from their horrific consequences. It appears, just as in Libya, Syria, and Iraq, the West and its allies are waging a proxy war in Pakistan as well. Attempts to exploit the tragedy in Peshawar compound this insidious agenda. Those across Pakistan’s political landscape must understand that their is no line these foreign interests are unwilling to cross in achieving their agenda – be it a line crossed at a perceived ally’s expense, or a perceived enemy’s expense.”

On December 19, American academic and radio talk-show host, Kevin Barrett, Ph.D, posted at the Veterans Today news website that the massacre at Peshawar military school was carried out by the “American Deep State and its allies India and Israel. Listen to Jim Fetzer comments on Sydney hostage taking and the massacre in Peshawar.

The US empire – sorry I should call it Bankster Empire – created the Pakistani Taliban to destabilize Pakistan. The ultimate aim is to take down Pakistan’s nuclear capability. Secondary aim: demonize Islam in general and Empire’s Afghan enemies in particular,” Barrett said.

Israel and India eagerly joined the project. They both have their own reasons wanting to destabilize, dismember and destroy nuclear-armed Pakistan,” Barrett added.

Today it is the Indian intelligence, RAW – unleashed by the genocidal Islamophobe Narendra Modi – that has the most hand-on control on the so-called “Pakistani Taliban”. But the US Deep State, with its deep pockets with narcotics trafficking, still in the picture,” Barrett said.

Texas Christians protest Hanukkah festival

On Wednesday, Barack Obama and the First Lady along with a group 550 of rabbis and Jewish and Zionist Christian leaders and 20 Israeli students celebrated annual Jewish festival of Hanukkah (festival of light) at the White House. During his address Obama said that “even a small act of faith can make the difference” while announcing the release of Alan Gross, an American Jewish spy convicted for espionage and anti-state activities in Cuba five years ago.

Obama’s guests also included leaders of Chabad Lubavitch which maintains very close relations with Israeli Mossad and India’s ruling Hindutva organizations.

Texas Governor Rick Perry is a great admirer of anti-Muslim Chabad and the Zionist entity. Perry, who has hinted at a second run for the presidency in 2016, also used this year Hanukka as a reminder of his support for the Zionist state, a must for any White House candidate.

Chabad Lubavitch is an organization of extremist Zionist Jews who declared Dr. Baruch Kopel Goldstein, “a Saint”. Goldstein, US-born Israeli mass-killer who slaughtered 40 Muslim worshippers at Abrahimi Mosque in Hebron on Purim night in 1994. Goldstein was founder of the Jewish Defense League which is declared a “terrorist group” in United States, but operates as Israel’s advocacy group in Canada and France.

On December 16, a group of Christians, Friends of Michael Hoffman, held a demonstration on Hanukkah Eve at Chabad Lubavitch menorah lighting event and at the home of a prominent Chabbad rabbi in Frisco, Texas.

It’s a Talmudic festival of Judaic self-worship presented as biblical commemoration of the Maccabees. John 10:22-23 refers to the Feast of Dedication which celebrates the rededication of Israelite temple in December 164 B.C., after its desecration by the pagan ruler Antiochus.” Hoffman says that like the rabbis of our time, Antiochus forbade the true worship of Yahweh and the correct use of the Scriptures. The attendance of Jesus at the Feast of Dedication is in no way implicated him in the perverted Talmudic Hanukkah, which came centuries later and which is dedicated to Judaic idolatry of themselves in defiance of Yahweh. Judaism mimic the religion of Bible. It has a Moses, a Noah and an eight day festival. But these are not the biblical Moses, Noah or 8 day festival. Read the rest of the article here.

Michael A. Hoffman is an American Christian historian, author and considered an authority on Judaism. Watch him telling the truth about Holocaust.

Jew spy opens door to US-Cuba friendship

Today, Barack Obama, once again proved that America is ruled by Zionist Jews.

R.M. Schneiderman, editor and writer for Newsweek and the Daily Beast, wrote in the Foreign Affairs Magazine (December 21, 2012) that the single biggest reason Barack Obama cannot make peace with Cuba – is Alan Gross, US Jewish citizen serving 15-year prison sentence in Havana. Cuban officials claim that Alan Gross was working for the US government and trying to subvert the state while working as a contractor in Cuba.

On December 17, 2014, Cuban president Raul Castro spoke to the nation at noon, the same time that Barack Obama was making an address from the White House. The two leaders were addressing, in their own way, a successful diplomatic effort that included the release of prisoners Alan Gross, the three remaining Cuban Five members and an unnamed US agent who was also jailed in Cuba.

I also want to thank the Government of Canada for facilitating the high-level dialogue between the two countries. In turn, we have decided to release and send back to the United States a spy of Cuban origin who was working for that nation. On the other hand, and for humanitarian reasons, today we have also sent the American citizen Alan Gross back to his country. Unilaterally, as has always been our practice, and in strict compliance with the provisions of our legal system, the concerned prisoners have received legal benefits, including the release of those persons that the Government of the United States had conveyed their interest in,” said Cuban President.

Obama admitted in his speech that embargo against Cuba (1961-2014) has failed to bring a “democratic” (pro-USrael) regime change in Cuba. Oddly, Obama administration is still continuing similar sanctions against Iran, Venezuela, Syria and Russia.

The Jew York Times reported that both Washington and Havana have agreed to reopen their embassy after five decades.

Alan Gross was received by US secretary of state John Kerry at an airbase near Washington. Kerry told reporters, “I look forward to being the first secretary of state to visit Cuba in 60 years.”

The organized Jewry is congratulated over the release of Alan Gross after serving only 5-year of his 15-year sentence in jail. Robert Menendez, chairman senate foreign relations, has criticized Obama for exchanging “three convicted Cuban spies” for the release of an “innocent American”.

Rajiv Shah the administration for the USAID, abruptly resigned on Wednesday after US and Cuba decided to make the prisoners exchange. The USAID oversaw secret programs to bring regime change in Havana.

Since 1992, Israel has always voted against removal of sanctions against Cuba at the UN General Assembly.

USAID – Israel: $700m vs Gaza: $10m

On December 16, 2014, the US embassy in Turkey announced that the US has donated $10 million to Palestinian Authority (not to Gaza government run by Hamas) for efforts to remove rubbles left from Israel’s 50-day carpet-bombing of Gaza Strip this Summer. According to a statement issued by the mission, the US administration made the donation through the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

Israel, as usual benefits from every war with its neighbors. It receives more military and financial aid from its western donors. United States which is the major funder of Israeli wars in the region, donates $3 billion military aid to the Jewish army plus it replaces all the military hardware used by Israeli army against its neighbors. The Congress has already committed nearly $700 million to replace all rockets, missiles, anti-missile batteries and ammunition, Jewish army used to kill and displace civilians during the recent 50-day war.

In October 2014, John Kerry, at the so-called “Gaza Donor Club” conference in Cairo had pledged $212 million for the reconstruction of Gaza infrastructure destroyed by the Jewish army. The war left over 2,500 Gazan including 545 children dead and 11,000 injured. Israel lost 67 soldiers and 7 civilian.

According to official Palestinian figures, a total of 15,671 housing units were damaged across the Gaza Strip, including 2,276 that were totally destroyed.

The latest Israeli offensive has left more than 65,000 Gazans facing a winter without shelter. One in five have access to water only once a week and 4 billion tons of rubble have yet to be cleared from a territory that is just 139 square miles.

Mahmoud Abbas, PA president and Shimon Peres’ Palestinian Gandhi had urged the donors to pledge $4 billion needed for the rebuilding of powerhouse, bridges, industrial and commercial properties and homes destroyed by punitive Israeli bombing.

Launched with the stated aim of destroying the Gaza ruling Islamic armed resistance Hamas, the Israeli offensive finally ended on August 26 with an indefinite cease-fire celebrated by both Netanyahu and Palestinian resistance groups as a strategic victory.

Israel has a history of claiming victory when in fact it has suffered defeat; the October 1973 war is the best example,” wrote Roth in Foreign Policy magazine. The difference back then is that many in Israel accepted false victories. But since Israel’s military humiliation during 2006 war with Hizbullah, they refuse to do so, as various opinion polls by Haaretz, Channel 2 and others are showing. Furthermore, the chasm in Israel’s political class is wider than it has been in many years.

 

Indian parliament shutdown over forced conversion

Indian parliament was forced to shutdown on Tuesday as the opposition lawmakers stormed the upper chamber shouting anti-Modi government slogans for supporting the forced conversion of members of Muslim and Christian minorities to Hinduism. They demanded that prime minister Narendra Modi condemn in public his government-aligned extremist Hindu parties for reportedly coercing into poor Muslims and Christians to Hindu majority religion.

The house will not run until the prime minister comes for discussion over the communal incidents and forced conversions issue,” Derek O’Brien, from the regional opposition All India Trinamool Congress, told reporters.

A Hindutva extremist group linked to Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been accused of converting some 50 slum-dwelling Muslim families last week in the Taj Mahal city of Agra. One of the converts said they were promised ration cards and other financial incentives if they went ahead with the conversions.

A BJP lawmaker has since announced plans for an even biggger conversion event of Christians and Muslims on Christmas Day in the northern town of Aligarh. Critics say Hindu hardline groups have become more emboldened since the BJP was elected, with rising communal tensions in the Hindu-majority but multi-faith country.

Hindu extremist groups close ties with Israel are well-known for their militant approach toward country’s religious minorities including 200 million low-caste Hindu Dalit community, women and gays and lesbian communities.

Professor Vijay Prashad (Trinity College in Hartford) wrote on May 18, 2014:  “The BJP began its career as a party with a programmatic hatred of minorities – mainly the 120 million Indian Muslims – but has since smartly camouflaged that odium behind the rhetoric of good governance. But the anti-minority sentiment is not absent; it was simply well-handled, with the BJP’s leader, Narendra Modi, winking toward that part of his party’s beliefs.”

Relations between India and Israel grew as a result of a pragmatic need for the Congress-led government to cement ties with Washington, DC, and its allies. From the very first days of the new relationship, elements that remain intact came into place – commercial ties, particularly in the tele-communications and energy sectors as well as the burgeoning arms trade from Israel to India; military ties, with the two countries collaborating on counter-terrorism techniques; cultural ties, with Israeli tourism transforming places such as Dharamsala and Khajuraho, where Hebrew signs are now legion and shopkeepers have learned enough Hebrew to converse with their guests (who are often men and women recently off duty from their terrible jobs at checkpoints,” Prashad added.

Goldy M. George Modi-BJP Hindu Fascism saying there are critical ideological discussions on BJP and RSS fronts, which essentially has a communal colour. The recent communal riots between the Hindus and Muslims in Muzaffar  Nagar have a lot to do with the communal frenzy for a number of reasons. It would not be out of  place to state that these philosophical and ideological postulations have not arisen from the blue, rather it had a steady and thorough progress in history.

 

Jewish Xmas Show without pro-Israel comedians

British veteran Jewish comedian Ivor Dembina is famous for telling old Jewish jokes. He also runs the Jewish Christmas Eve Show where UK’s top Jewish comedians perform to fool British Christian majority that Jews too celebrate Christmas because Christ was also Jewish, which is not true.

This year, however, Ivor Dembina, fell from organized Jewry’s grace for making a political wrong statement. He told his fellow Jewish performers that anyone who performs at functions arranged by groups which support illegal Jewish settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, is not welcome at his traditional Christmas Eve Show.

I have always had a policy of not booking acts who publicly endorse racist organisations. I regard the JNF as discriminatory against Palestinians in its practice, and I believe there is sufficient evidence to suggest that it is racist in its outlook. The JNF is not being singled out. I would not book anyone who publicly supported an organisation that I regarded as racist. That would include the EDL with its anti-Muslim rhetoric, and the BNP who express antisemitic views. JC readers and the wider comedy audience know my politics, and that I take my long-held anti-racist beliefs very seriously,” Dembina said.

Jewish comedian Mark Maier, who appeared in last year’s Xmas Eve show, told media that Dembina had told him he would no longer be welcome at his show if he performed at the Jewish National Fund’s (JNF) annual Kosher Komedy Night. “He said that, if I continued doing the JNF show, I couldn’t be on the bill at his gigs,” Maier said. Read more here.

The JNF chairman Samuel Hayek responded by calling Dembina “extremely ill-informed” and “Israel hater”.

In October 2010, UK’s daily Telegraph reported that Mark Gardner, Jewish lobby CST communications director, confirmed that Zionist Jews were running the EDL: “The Jewish branch is a tiny part of a far larger movement, dominated by white males who would previously have made up National Front marches and English football hooligan gangs.”

The British National Party (BNP), whose leader Nick Griffin has never missed an opportunity to show his support for the Zionist entity, was declared “anti-Semite” by CST for maintaining good relation with Hungarian opposition party Jobbik for latter’s call for a Christian-Muslim alliance against Zionism.

Established internationally in 1901, JNF owns 13% of land in Israel stolen from its Natives, both Muslims and Christians. The JNF’s bylaws and lease documents contain a restrictive covenant stating its property will not be leased to non-Jews.

A 1998 United Nations Human Rights Council report found that the JNF systematically discriminates against Palestinian citizens of Israel, who make up about 20 percent of the country’s population. According to the UN report, JNF lands are “chartered to benefit Jews exclusively,” which has led to an “institutionalized form of discrimination.” Similarly, after an Arab Israeli couple was blocked from leasing a house in the mid-1990s they took their case all the way to Israel’s High Court and in 2005 the court found that the JNF systematically excluded Palestinian citizens of Israel from leasing its property.

The US State Department’s 2012 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices detailed “institutional and societal discrimination” in Israel. The report noted, “Approximately 93 percent of land was in the public domain, including approximately 12.5 percent owned by the NGO Jewish National Fund (JNF), whose statutes prohibit sale or lease of land to non-Jews.”

After WW I, Canada gave JNF “Jewish charity” status even though its leaders are more open to the Jewish racist policy of the organization. In May 2002, JNF Canada’s executive director for eastern Canada, Mark Mendelson, explained: “We are trustees between world Jewry and the land of Israel.” JNF Canada’s head Frank A. Wilson echoed this statement in July 2009: “JNF are the caretakers of the Land of Israel on behalf of its owners, who are the Jewish people everywhere around the world.”
