Remembering Rev. Brockmann: A friend of Palestine

H.E. Father Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, M.M.

Rev. Miguel D’Escoto Brockmann, former Nicaraguan foreign minister and president of the United Nations General Assembly died on June 8, 2017. He was also a leading voice of conscience on Middle East peace. He is mourned by supporters of nine million Palestinian victims of the Western colonial project in Palestine.

Within hours of the first airstrikes against Gaza, Father Miguel condemned Israel’s actions as wanton aggression by a very powerful state against a territory that it illegally occupies. He insisted it was time for the General Assembly to take firm action if the United Nations does not want to be rightly accused of complicity by omission. In following days, the UN Security Council – which under the UN Charter is supposed to take primary responsibility for peace and security issues – discussed and debated and consistently failed to respond to the growing Gaza crisis, mostly because the veto-wielding United States was active in blocking action. Then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, in the midst of the slaughter of Gazan civilians, famously remarked, “We don’t need a cease-fire yet,” wrote Richard Falk, while paying tributes to Rev. Miguel on June 14, 2017.

The small Latin American nation of six million, has long been victim of American imperialism including the notorious Contra guerrilla insurgency that had been funded, equipped and trained by United States.

In order to fund its regime change in Nicaragua without the blessing of the Congress, Reagan administration created the Iran-Contra scandal. According to Barbara Honegger, a member of the 1980 Reagan-Bush campaign team and Reagan White House policy analyst, stated that the Reagan-Bush campaign negotiated with Iranian authorities to delay the release of American embassy staffers in Tehran until after the presidential election, and that military spare-parts sales to Iran pre-paid by the deposed King Reza Shah was part of that bargain. In order to discredit the 1979 Islamic Revolution, the shipment was publicized to be made by Israel. In June 1984, Robert McFarlane claimed that he got the money from Saudi ‘royals’ to fund the Contra rebels.

Barbara Honegger, author of book October Surprise deny the official 9/11 story. “Behind the Smoke Curtain: Or Everything You Think You Probably Know about the Pentagon Attack on 9/11 is Wrong,” she says (video below).

On January 11, 1987, Bernard Gwertzman reported at the Jew York Times: “In May 28-31, 2010, Robert McFarlane and his party of ten made a secret trip to Iran using falsified Irish passports – carrying a Bible with a handwritten verse from President Reagan for Iranian leaders, and a key-shaped cake to symbolize the anticipated ”opening” to Iran.” However, the mission failed when then president Ayatullah Ali Khamenei ordered the party to be deported immediately.

Nicaraguan socialist government build-up an alliance with Cuba, Venezuela, and the Islamic Republic to counter American imperialism. Iran-Nicaragua relations reached the peak under Ahmadinejad presidency. Ahmadinejad along with Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez visited Nicaragua in January 2012 to attend Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega inauguration. Speaking at the ceremony Ortega attacked the US occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq, condemned the killing of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and supported Iran’s right to pursue its civilian nuclear program. He also urged the Zionist regime to destroy its nuclear weapons to foster peace in the region.

President Daniel Ortega visited Iran in June 2007 and met president Ahmadinejad and country’s Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei.

Ahmadinejad provided over US$550 million aid to Nicaragua to build a hospital, a university, a power plant and an agricultural research center.

Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega severed diplomatic ties with the Zionist entity in 2010, in protest over Israeli commandos storming Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara vessel carrying aid workers – killing nine Turkish citizens aboard. In late March 2017, the serial liar Netanyahu claimed that Israel-Nicaragua agreed to re-establish diplomatic relations immediately which have not materialized as yet.

Iranian foreign minister Dr. Mohammad Javad Zarif  visited Managua last year.

Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega government hosted the UN International Conference on Occupied Palestine in Managua on February 4, 2017.

Nicaraguan is a Christian-majority (90%) nation with only 1,500 Muslim community.

1967 ‘Six Day War’ and 50-year of Jewish Lies

Since Golda Meir’s “we’ll never forgive the Arabs for forcing our children to kill them” to “a nation cannot be an occupier on its own land”, lies keep following lies. It hasn’t stopped to this day. Fifty years of occupation, fifty shades of mendacity. And now? Another fifty years?,” wrote Gideon Levy at Israel’s daily Ha’aretz on June 1, 2017.

Fifty years ago, on June 5, 1967, the Jewish army began an unprovoked aggression against its three neighbors – Egypt, Syria, and Jordan. By June 10, with the help of the US and France, it occupied Jordanian controlled East Jerusalem and the West Bank, Egyptian Sinai Peninsula, Egyptian controlled Gaza Strip, and Syrian Golan Height.

The fifty-year-old Jewish lie that Israel fought the six day war to defend itself from the invading Arab armies began on June 1, 1967. On that day, Israeli army’s top generals forced then prime minister Levi Eshkol to appoint Israel’s one-eyed war lord, General Moshe Dayan as country’s defense minister. Until that day, Levi Eshkol (died 1969), a Ukrainian Jew, was holding dual portfolio – prime minister and defense minister. Eshkol was considered dovish. He didn’t want Israel to go to war because he knew the assertions of its hawks that the Arabs were about to attack were propaganda nonsense. He also understood and accepted the advice given to his foreign minister Abba Eban by French President Charles de Gaulle. In a conversation with Eban in Paris de Gaulle said: “Israel shouldn’t go to war, because, if it did, it would create Palestinian nationalism which would never go away.”

On 14 April 1971, a report in the Israeli newspaper Al-Hamishmar contained the statement made by Mordecai Bentov, a member of the wartime national government: “The entire story of the danger of extermination (by Arab armies) was invented in every detail and exaggerated to justify the annexation of new Arab territory.”

On 4 April 1972, the Israeli newspaper Ma’ariv reported a statement by General Haim Bar-Lev, former chief of staff: “We were not threatened by genocide on the eve of the six day war and we had never thought of such possibility.”

In 1972, General Matetiyahu Peled, Chief of Logistical Command during the war and one of 12 members of Israel’s General Staff, addressed a political literary club in Tel Aviv. He said: “The thesis according to which the danger of genocide hung over us in June 1967, and according to which Israel was fighting for her very physical survival was nothing but a bluff which was born and bred after the war.”

British journalist Alan Hart who covered the six day war for UK’s Independent Television Authority, posted his views on the Israeli aggression, entitle, The lies about the 1967 war are still more powerful than the truth.

General Matetiyahu Peled’s son Miko Peled spoke about Jewish occupation and the six day war at San Diego State University on March 30, 2011.

During the six day war, several Pakistan pilots volunteered in Jordanian air force to fight Israeli aggression.

On Monday, the United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres, a friend of Israel in a statement said: “The occupation of the Palestinian territories and the Syrian Golan imposed a heavy humanitarian and development burden on the Palestinian people,” many of whom are living in refugee camps, in abject poverty and with little or no prospect of a better life. Ending the occupation and achieving a negotiated two-state outcome is the only way to lay the foundations for enduring peace in the region.”

On June 8, 1967, Israeli war planes attacked a spy vessel in international waters in the height of the six day war – killing 34 and injuring another 171 crew members onboard (watch a video below). The vessel USS Liberty belonged to no other than Israel’s surrogate mother and greatest benefactor, the United States.

Palestinian flag flies above Dublin’s City Hall

On May 15, despite objection from Israeli ambassador to Ireland Ze’ev Boker Dublin City councilors raised Palestinian flag above the City Hall to show country’s solidarity with the Palestinian people on the 50th anniversary of the 1967 occupation of Palestinian territories. The flag will stay there for one month.

The gesture is to support Palestinians living under an apartheid worse than South Africa,” said councilor John Lyons.

Ironically, Irish Christian lawmakers and religious leaders had played a major role in the establishment of the Zionist entity in 1948. Arthur James Balfour, also known as Bloody Balfour, one of the signatories of the Balfour Declaration, was chief secretary of Ireland before becoming UK’s foreign secretary.

Alan Cunningham, the last British high commissioner in Jerusalem was born in Dublin. He had been in charge during the mass expulsion of Palestinians by Zionist Jewish militias, an episode called the Nakba or catastrophe in Palestinian history.

On 14 May 1948, British rule in Palestine came to an end; David Ben Gurion declared a state that same day. The transition was marked in a low-key ceremony at which Alan Cunningham inspected a color party.

In November 2017, the Zionist regime and the organized Jewry in Western countries plan to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the notorious Balfour Declaration which laid the foundation of a permanent Western colonial cancer in the heart of Muslim world.

In March 2017, Israeli president Reuven Rivlin extended an invitation to Queen Elizabeth and members of British royal family to attend the event. Queen Elizabeth has never visited the Zionist entity so far.

Three British lawmakers, Baroness Tonge, David Ward, and Lord Ahmad are leading a campaign – demanding that British government apologize for authoring and supporting the notorious Balfour Document which has brought immense sufferings to Palestinian and Arabs.

British prime minister Theresa May under pressure from Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and powerful British Jewish Lobby has refused to apologize for British part in the Balfour Declaration.

Muslim-Irish relations go back to 1847 Irish Famine during which Ottoman Sultan Abdul Madjid Khan I (1839-1861) donated money and food to save tens of thousands of Irish people.

Mahmoud Abbas on 3-day visit to India

The USrael Viceroy in the occupied West Bank, Mahmoud Abbas landed in New Delhi on Sunday night on a 3-day visit. This is his fifth visit to India since he became president of Palestinian Authority after the death of PLO chairman Yasser Arafat in 2005. During his stay in New Delhi, he is scheduled to meet Indian prime minister Narendra Modi, Indian president Pranab Mukherjee and country’s foreign minister.

Abbas is scheduled to appraise the Indian leaders of his view of the so-called 2-state solution which is totally different than Gaza-ruling Islamic Hamas resistance group.

Last year, commenting on Narendra Modi’s claim that Indian army in Kashmir is defending Indian territory from Pakistan’s military violation no different than Jewish army is defending Israel from Hamas rockets – Indian journalist Diddharth Varadarajan wrote at The Wire: “Modi needs to remember that Israel is an occupying power in Palestine. Its status as an occupying power has been acknowledged by the United Nations. Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem, along with the Syrian Golan Heights remain the last territories in the world formally considered to be under foreign occupation.”

Modi is making his first trip to the Zionist entity as a prime minister in July 2017. Modi visited Israel in 2008 as chief minister of state of Gujarat.

In 1948, India voted against Israel’s entry into the United Nations, and voted for Zionism to be condemned alongside racism. But since 1971 war with Pakistan India has developed very close relations with Zionist entity. Last month, Modi signed US$2 billion arms deal with Israel.

Mahmoud Abbas met Donald Trump at the White House on May 3, 2017. Trump told Abbas in the Roosevelt Room that his administration favors a Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 borders (Gaza, West Bank and East Jerusalem) but it must be negotiated between Israel and the Palestinian Authority without interference from a third party. He urged Abbas and Palestinians to stop first violence against the Jewish army and illegal Jewish settlers in order for Netanyahu to return to any negotiation. Trump blamed Palestinians for terrorism against Israel and not the Israeli Jews who established and maintained the Zionist entity on terrorism.

Trump is set to make a landmark visit to the Zionist entity on May 22-23, 2017. Netanyahu have assigned 10,000 Jew police force to protect Trump from the stone-throwing Palestinian youth (Newsweek, May 15).

Abbas’ meetings with Israel-admiring Narendra Modi, Egyptian president Gen. al-Sisi and Donald Trump are not to resolve the Palestinian issue but to boost his own image against the popularity of Hamas. Abbas’ mandate as president of Palestinian Authority expired in January 2009.

Modi is moving away from the conventional Indian foreign policy position of unconditionally siding with the oppressed Palestinians. If Modi has his way, New Delhi will henceforth oppose all future UN resolutions on Palestinian statehood, thus exposing the Hindu nationalists’ aversion to a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine dispute. However, India’s ambivalence on issues concerning self-determination and human rights is not new. Is New Delhi’s exploitation of the Tibetan people to checkmate a powerful China and thereafter dumping the same community to court Beijing years later any different from what Modi’s administration plans to mete out to the poor Palestinians, who looked up to Mahatma Gandhi’s India for moral support throughout their struggle?,” wrote Indian journalist Seema Sengupta at the Arab News on January 5, 2015.

UNESCO: Jerusalem is an occupied city

On Tuesday, UNESCO’s executive board passed a resolution which slammed Zionist regime’s actions in occupied Al-Quds (East Jerusalem) and Gaza Strip, despite a vicious campaign by Israel and its poodles ruling the Western countries to discredit the United Nations’ cultural agency.

The resolution, which declared Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem null and void was passed by 22:10 votes. Russia, China, Brazil, Sweden, South Africa, Iran, Malaysia, Mauritius, Nigeria, Senegal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Vietnam, Nicaragua, Chad and seven Arab countries voted in favor of the resolution. The US, Germany, Italy, Britain, Holland, Lithuania, Greece, Paraguay, Ukraine and Togo opposed the resolution while Estonia, France, Slovenia, Spain, India and Japan abstained.

The resolution calls the Zionist entity, as the occupying power, to cease persistent excavations, tunneling, works and projects in East Jerusalem, which the Palestinians want as the capital of their future state.

It reaffirms the importance of the Old City of Jerusalem and its walls for the three monotheistic religions, while accusing the Zionist regime of taking actions that have altered, or purport to alter the character and status of the Al-Quds.

The resolution also criticized the Zionist regime for its blockade on the Hamas-governed Gaza Strip since 2007.

Zionist regime, however, succeeded in gaining more support among the member states than it did in a similar resolution last year. Last year only six member-nations had supported the Zionist entity.

The resolution was submitted by Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Sudan, Algeria, Oman and Qatar. Among these countries, only Lebanon supports Hamas.

As expected, both Tel Aviv and Washington called the UNESCO’s decision biased and not binding on the Zionist entity.

The executive board decision now goes to the plenary, which will consider the issue on Friday.

We understand very well that we are struggling against a huge power supported by many countries, including the US. And we know that our success will be cumulative – step by step, stone by stone,” Dr. Mustafa Barghouti, General Secretary the Palestinian National Initiative said in a statement.

The Geneva-based UN Watch has its own ambassador at United Nations. Enjoy below the professional liar white-washing Israeli crimes at UNESCO meeting. As far the Zionist’s whining, “Algeria, where are your Jews?” They came with the French occupiers and majority of them left Algeria along with the French occupiers. No Muslim majority country followed European expulsion of Jewry. Jews left Arab countries for Israel as result of Zionist Jewish terrorism (here, here, here, here).

The UN Watch’s executive director Hillel Neuer has thanked India for distancing itself from anti-Israel Arab countries.

Historically, Jerusalem existed under the name Salem during the time of prophet Abraham 3000 years ago – and Abraham was certainly not an Israelite or a Jew. The entire city was demolished by Babylonians in 586 BC. It was rebuilt seventy-year later by Cyrus, the King of Persia, who could not be a Jew. In 40 BC Romans occupied Jerusalem and incinerated the Temple of Solomon (Masjid-e-Aqsa, mentioned as the Far-away mosque in the Holy Qur’an.

Palestine has existed, though not as an independent state, for over 10,000 years. Its inhabitants have been Jebusites (the ones’ who most probably built the city), Cannanites, Phoenicians, Hittites, Aramaeans, Ammonites, Moabites, Edomites, Arabs, Franks and Turks. Part of Palestine was ruled by King Solomon under the name of Kingdom of Judea and Samara until it was conquered by Babylonians, Greeks, Romans and Persians between 171 BC and 135 CE. The City of Jerusalem was handed over to Muslim Arab forces by the Christian Patriarch Sofronius in 637 CE. Muslims found the ruins of Temple of Solomon used as the city garbage dump. Under the orders of Caliph Umar Ibn Khattab (ra), the site was cleaned of garbage and handed-over to the Chaief Rabbi of Jerusalem, who in gratitude declared the Caliph as the Promised Jewish Messiah. Sheikh Imran Nazar Hossein in his book Jerusalem in the Quran exposes the Zionist lies about their Biblical claim on the Holy Land.

Hamas accepts 2-state solution while rejects Israel

On Monday, Khaled Meshaal, the political head of Palestinian Islamic resistance Hamas ruling the besieged Gaza Strip, announced in Doha (Qatar) that his organization has modified its Founding Covenant 1988 and is now ready to accept an independent Palestinian state along the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem its capital but without recognizing the Zionist entity.

Without compromising its rejection of the Zionist entity – Hamas considers the establishment of a fully sovereign and independent Palestinian state, with East Jerusalem its capital along the lines of the 4th of June 1967, with the return of the refugees and displaced to their homes from which they were expelled, to be a formula of national consensus,” the document reads.

The changes also state that the conflict in Palestine is not religious but resistance against a Western colonial power.

“Hamas doesn’t wage a struggle against Israel because of its Jewish people but wages a struggle against the Zionists who occupy Palestine. Yet, it’s the Zionists who constantly identify Judaism and Jews with their own colonial projects and illegal entity,” said the document.

The Jewish media has blessed the modification in Hamas charter as moderate because now Hamas recognizes Israel within 1967 borders.

Hamas won first-ever free election held in Palestinian Territories in January 2006. It was monitored by United Nations and former US president Jimmy Carter. Hamas established a unity government in both Gaza and the west Bank but in June 2007, on the behest of US and Israel, Fatah fighters revolted against Hamas and took over government in the West Bank declaring its leader Mahmoud Abbas as president of the Palestinian Authority (PA).

The Zionist regime imposed a military blockade on Gaza in 2007 which was joined by Egypt later under pressure from Washington.

Hamas leader Abd al-Aziz Rant-issi had made a similar offer to the Zionist regime in January 2004 in an interview with the UK’s newspaper The Guardian as part of ten-year ceasefire which was rejected by the Butcher of Beirut Ariel Sharon.

The new declaration brings Hamas closer to the 2002 Saudi Plan and Yasser Arafat’s Fatah party currently lead by a double agent Mahmoud Abbas with the exception of the recognition of the Zionist occupation of 78% of the historic Muslim Palestine.

Mahmoud Abbas finds his leadership threatened by Fatah leader Mourad Al-Barghouthy who is leading a 1000 Palestinian detainee hunger strikers demanding better human rights in Israeli prisons since April 17. In order to salvage his treason, he is seeking help from two Crypto Jews, Gen. al-Sisi of Egypt and the US president Donald Trump to push Benjamin Netanyahu to revive the dead 2-state proposal.

Abbas met Egyptian dictator on Monday ahead of his meeting with Donald Trump at the White House on May 3.

Egypt supports Palestinians in establishing their independent state within the borders of June 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital,” said a statement from Egyptian presidential palace.

Barghouti: Palestinian Nelson Mandela!

One needs to enjoy the Palestinian heroes made by Israelis such as Yasser Arafat, Mahmoud Abbas, Marwan Barghouti, Gen. Dahlan, and other  so-called ‘moderate’ secularist leaders.

On Sunday, the Jew York Time published an Op-Ed by Marwan Bargouti, entitled, Why We Are On Hunger Strike In Israel’s Prisons. Barghouti is serving five life-terms in some Jewish jail in occupied Palestine for inciting Palestinians to kill innocent foreign Jews occupying Palestinian land. For this crime, Barghouti was transferred to a solitary confinement cell while the Jew York Times has apologized to Benjamin Netanyahu for committing this treason against a foreign entity.

I have no respect for such Muslim leaders who like White Christian leaders are willing to sell their souls for Jewish money and praise.

On April 21, 2017, Marwan Barghouti was declared Palestine’s Nelson Mandela by no other than Uri Avnery, a former Jew terrorist turned Israeli politician and peacemaker. Uri Avnery, in the past, has claimed that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, former president of Islamic Republic of Iran was a Mossad agent and Israel is not an apartheid state.

Avnery claims that Barghouti like him too believe in two-state solution to resolve the Israel-Palestinian conflict. “A State of Palestine next to the State of Israel, and to establish peace between the two states, based on the 1967 lines (78% of historic Palestine land for Israel and only 22% for the native Palestinians), with open borders and cooperation,” Avnery said.

Contrary to Barghouti’s generosity toward alien Jews, Nelson Mandela who spent more than 28 years in Israel’s top African ally, White-occupied South African jail – never agreed to a two-state solution for South Africa.

Iran has supported both Palestinian and South Africans in their fight against their European occupiers. Nelson Mandela, Bishop Tutu and other South African leaders have visited Iran to thank for country’s help. Mandela even called Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei MY LEADER.

Marwan Barghouti belongs to Mahmoud Abbas’, a traitor to Palestinian cause, Fatah party. He is being groomed as the next Palestinian leader to counter Islamic resistance groups like Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

The more Barghouti appears as a freedom fighter, the more Israel’s oppression is magnified, and vice versa. So if you can make him into a terrorist, then that immediately dispels what he is saying. But when it comes to Nelson Mandela, we’re quick to forget all that,” says Jonathan Ofir, an Israeli Jew filmmaker and blogger living in Sweden.
