JERUSALEM ~~ WORLD’S CAPITAL OF OCCUPATION AND OPPRESSION

What is happening under our very eyes should shame us all, it is the unresolved question that should never be separated from the Holocaust and that the “Jewish state” again and again as a license for their crimes against human rights and international law, robbery, raids and use Zionist propaganda.

Capital of the Occupation and Oppression 

Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

 

Imagine that Jews all over the world are celebrating their highest holidays, such as Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) or Rosh Hashanah (New Year), and they would be prevented from praying. Surely there would be a media excitement around the globe! In contrast, millions of Muslims around the globe are celebrating the Eid-al-Adha sacrifice and helplessly witnessing their Palestinian peers seeking to pray on the Haram al-Sharif and the Al-Aqsa Mosque , Zionist occupation forces and Jewish settlers, members of the extremist “Temple Mountain groups, have attempted to storm the holy mosque. After the Jewish extremists and occupation troops had injured the Muslim believers with rubber bullets, thugs and tear gas, at least 61 injured were to be lamented. Among them also Awqaf officials of the Jordanian authority, which administers the Haram al-Sharif. Jordan protested, as so often before.

Israel is allowed everything

The far-right Israeli Minister of Public Security, Gilad Erdan, known for his racist failures, revealed his stupidity and instinctlessness and allowed some 1,700 extremist Jews to enter Haram al-Sharif. The Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs immediately condemned this brazen provocation, which causes only anger and frustration, especially on the first day of the Sacrifice. They also called on the international community to intervene for Israel to stop this behavior. What do these threats mean to the Netanyahu regime? Also, the call of the Palestinian “Vichy Abbas” PA to Arab and Islamic states to “take action” against the international community and Israel to stop the aggression against worshipers, only a helpless attempt remained without effect. The demand for a special session of the UN Security Council was also ineffective. This shows once again clearly: Israel is allowed to do everything and does everything that contributes to the consolidation of the occupation and Judaisierung.

The al-Aqsa mosque is the third most important mosque in Islam and is for Palestinians the symbol and memory of occupation and oppression of their homeland. Year after year, extremist Jewish politicians try to conquer the “Temple Mount” and hoist the symbol of the Israeli occupation there, the Star of David flag. They want to complete the final solution of the Judaization with the temple mountain appropriation. It could threaten to fulfill this desire after US President Trump recognized Jerusalem as the “eternal Jewish capital,” as Netanyahu demanded.

The community of states reveals its alleged “values” when it comes to Israeli crimes, and looks on cowardly and makes the Israeli injustice against the Palestinian people happen year after year. Racism is certainly at stake, because it is “only” about Muslims and Palestinians, who are also denied any right to non-violent resistance if they dare to defend themselves against illegal occupation and Israeli land grabbing. Nevertheless, tens of thousands of Muslims came to pray, millions should be !!!!!!

Less and less willing to support Israel’s fascist repression policy

Time and again attempts are being made to postpone the status quo, especially when Israeli politicians like Netanyahu shake it up and try more and more provocations because they are so terribly sure they will win again and again.

There is a small glimmer of hope because more and more democratic US Jews, especially more and more young Jewish US citizens, are turning their backs on the “Jewish state” and are no longer willing to support its fascist oppressive policies against the Palestinian people.

When will we finally experience such changes in Germany? As long as Jews continue to support this “Jewish state” and its criminal occupation policy without criticism, they should not be surprised if they are held responsible for these crimes. While the corporate media in Germany criticize criticism of Israel as anti-Semitism, the real existing Islam hatred is downplayed – as well as the problem with the right-wing extremists, which we have for decades and never really dealt with, to grab it at the root. This began after the end of the war, when old Nazis returned to high posts and emigrants were denied integration. You have always been busy with a left-wing hunt, while you are blind in the right eye. The constant media brainwashing has internalized the majority of Germans so that it will be difficult to change. Therefore, the AfD and other right-wing populist parties have an easier time gaining a foothold, as they are especially mentally attached to the “Jewish state” when it comes to fighting Islam and Muslims. As long as German people’s representatives meanwhile denigrate Jewish Israel critics and court “Israel friends” and replace anti-Semitism with philosemitism, it will look bleak in Germany.

Berlin wall divided a city, the Zionist apartheid wall all Palestine

On August 13, the building of the Berlin Wall was commemorated 58 years ago in Berlin. While the 155-kilometer structure “only” shared a city and this division ended on November 9, 1989, with the fall of the wall, the Zionist apartheid wall divides the whole of Palestine and runs across illegally occupied Palestinian land. This 15-year-old disastrous Apartheid Wall is 760 kilometers long, over 9 meters high, and Israel violates international law with its construction, according to a report commissioned by the UN General Assembly. But that does not seem to get either the “Auschwitz Minister” or the international community to rethink, and that should shame us ALL! As a native of Berlin, I know exactly what I am writing about. While the wall dead (140/327?) Is thought, one forgets.

We have just seen how German politicians, headed by the “Auschwitz Minister” Maas, asked forgiveness in Poland for the German Nazi crimes and felt ashamed and then praised the German resistance and the attempted and failed Hitler assassination. More than lying! After all, most of the assassins had previously been enthusiastic supporters of the Nazis and even as “resisters” no Democrats. If the “Auschwitz Minister” were serious about a “never again”, it would be long overdue that he would be ashamed of the untenable conditions in Palestine and would have to persuade him to think and think. Similarly, when Maas left for New York on 12 August to speak to the United Nations Security Council at the invitation of Poland as part of its security presidency, in a 70th anniversary debate, the four Geneva Conventions. Before departure, he had announced full-bodied that Germany wants to urge for the strengthening of international humanitarian law. “Seventy years after the adoption of the Geneva Conventions, protected persons are victims of atrocities and arbitrariness every day. The international community must take action so that the breach of taboos does not become permanent “. Have not we had this “steady state” for 71 years in Palestine, and was not it precisely Maas who repeatedly points out that he went into politics because of Auschwitz? Does not he have to see Auschwitz as a man for human rights crimes, inextricably linked to Palestine and the founding of the “Jewish state”? But he is so (a) hypocritical and self-righteous, yet another reason to be ashamed of German foreign policy.

Holocaust: Israel’s charter for crimes against human rights

What is happening under our very eyes should shame us all, it is the unresolved question that should never be separated from the Holocaust and that the “Jewish state” again and again as a license for their crimes against human rights and international law, robbery, raids and use Zionist propaganda.

This ongoing resistance to the Zionist theft of their homeland and the attempt to destroy the collective cultural memory is to be seen in the context of the Zionist project of Judaizing Palestine and demonizing the Palestinians while the Jews and Zionism are being heroized. The “Jewish state” is hanging on the drip of the United States and is considered the Western model for stabilizing US rule in the Middle East. A prime example of colonial oppression on stolen land.

Therefore, the Palestinian cause, like the BDS movement, is a national and international liberation movement, free from ideological precepts. Thus, the historical and sacred significance of Haram-al-Sharif must not be ignored for all Muslims around the world. But much more focus on the importance of the liberation of Palestine is a question of national pride and territorial integrity, which is systematically, consistently and with international support from the Zionist colonial project from the founding of the state to the present day injured.

Only when Muslims, Palestinians can pray and live freely again in a free Palestine, we will be able to celebrate happily. But with a heavy heart, we are united in solidarity with the Palestinians, who are increasingly oppressed by the Zionist state terror regime.

All parties in the Bundestag henchman of the Zionist occupation regime

That there are also courageous Germans, showed the former German ambassador in Iraq and Iran, Bernd Ebel, who had given a very open and interesting interview to an Internet portal. Thereafter, he was released to the media launch and after a Bild-Schmutzkampagne renounced this exception diplomat on the Instex post. Note: never say anything critical against Israel, or you will be burned for the public. As Spiegel already told us, here it was again confirmed that the media “cancer ulcer” of the German media landscape has taken over the interpretation sovereignty over our dealings with Israel, and let the spinalless German politicians in particular be guided by it. How else can it be that this outstanding diplomat and, above all, well-known connoisseur of the region was abandoned by his “boss” AA Maas? (1)

The case of Ebel is now symptomatic of Germany, where all parties, especially the AfD, excel as henchmen of the Zionist occupation regime, in the commitment to the “Jewish state” and in the demonization of Muslims and immigrants. That so many central media take part in this scare should give us food for thought.

Jerusalem, the capital of oppression, should remind us to fight for the freedom of Palestine and the fall of the apartheid wall. I wish to pray to all Muslim friends and Palestinians next year in a free Jerusalem.

A blessed Eid Mubarak to the sacrificial festival!

DEMOLISHING HOMES INSTEAD OF WALLS

NOT HOMES!

Israeli forces began Monday demolishing buildings in an East Jerusalem neighborhood under the control of the Palestinian Authority, following a legal challenge to the Defense Ministry-issued order to evacuate apartments deemed too close to the West Bank separation barrier, which runs through the city.

The International Court of Justice in The Hague issued an advisory opinion in 2004 that building the barrier on occupied territory was “contrary to international law.”

Israel Begins Demolition of 70 Homes in Palestinian-controlled East Jerusalem Neighborhood

Forces deploy at dawn days after top court approves order to evict Wadi Hummus residents, in a move activists are concerned sets a precedent to affect thousands

Israeli forces began Monday demolishing buildings in an East Jerusalem neighborhood under the control of the Palestinian Authority, following a legal challenge to the Defense Ministry-issued order to evacuate apartments deemed too close to the West Bank separation barrier, which runs through the city.

Israeli and international activists said Israeli forces deployed in the neighborhood at dawn, evacuating one family from one of the buildings, as well as activists who protested the move.

Two hours prior to the demolition, activists say they saw Israel Defense Forces‘ soldiers placing explosives in an eight-stories building set for demolition. Later, the forces removed furniture and vehicles that were parked next to the buildings.

Aviv Tatarsky, a researcher for the left-wing Ir Amim organization, blasted the move, saying: “In the name of the demographic war waged against East Jerusalem residents, the State of Israel is withholding approval of construction plans allowing those residents to legally build within the city.

“Residents who didn’t want to build without a permit, sought a creative solution and were granted construction permits from the Palestinian Authority to build in areas and A and B where Israel doesn’t have any authority concerning construction plans. The Israeli insistence to prevent this solution is a very cruel act,” Tatarsky added.

“I built this house stone by stone. It was my dream to live in this house. Now I am losing everything,” said Fadi al-Wahash, 37, his voice breaking as a bulldozer destroyed his unfinished three-floor house.

“I had a permit to build from the Palestinian Authority. I thought I was doing the right thing,” he said.

Israeli Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said 700 police and 200 soldiers were involved.

“Despite an order from the military commander, the residents there are making their own law, building. There are hundreds of illegal structures,” he told Israel’s Army Radio.

“To my regret there is no sufficient governance there. But it is not just that there are hundreds of structures there — several dozens of them sit almost on the route of the separation fence, endangering the security forces that operate there.”

Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said the Palestinians would complain to the International Criminal Court about the demolitions in Sur Baher.

“The cabinet condemns this grave aggression. This is a continuation of the forced displacement of the people of Jerusalem from their homes and lands — a war crime and a crime against humanity,” Shtayyeh said.

In June, Israel’s High Court of Justice has ruled in favor of the demolition of 13 large buildings in the Wadi Hummus neighborhood, located on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

It is on the edge of the Palestinian village of Sur Baher, in southeast Jerusalem. Unlike the rest of the village, this neighborhood lies beyond the city’s municipal boundaries, in the West Bank. Most of the area it occupies is designated as part of Area A – i.e., under the control of the Palestinian Authority.

Sur Baher residents say Wadi Hummus is the only area that remains for future expansion of the village, which is surrounded by the fence and Jewish neighborhoods.

The Defense Ministry instructed to demolish some 70 apartments, citing concerns over their proximity to the separation fence, which it said made them a security threat. Two out of the 13 buildings set for demolition are populated with some 17 residents.

Jamie McGoldrick, the United Nations humanitarian coordinator, and other UN officials called on the Israeli authorities last week to halt the demolition plans. The European Union issued a statement saying: “The continuation of this policy undermines the viability of the two-state solution and the prospect for a lasting peace.”

On Sunday, the court rejected a petition to postpone the demolition, which Palestinian activsts are concerned sets a precedent that will enable the demolition of thousands of buildings across the West Bank, effectively annulling the legal protection residents of other PA-controlled areas have.

“Some families put everything they have to put a roof over their heads, and it’s all being ruined in front of their eyes in this despicable crime committed by Israel,” community organizer Hamada Hamada told Haaretz.

“large forces entered after 2:00 A.M. to the neighborhood, preventing any access to the homes and forcefully removing the residents as well as dozens of activists who were present at the scene, evacuating them while women and children were heard screaming in the background,” Hamada added.

Palestinian officials say some of the threatened structures lie within areas that they should control. The Palestine Liberation Organization issued a statement accusing the Israeli court of aiming “to set a precedent to enable the Israeli occupying forces to demolish numerous Palestinian buildings located in close proximity” to the barrier.

The office of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas released a statement saying that “Israel bears the full responsibility for the dangerous escalation in Sur Baher, which is part of the implementation of the “deal of the century” whose goal is to bury the Palestinian issue.”

According to the statement, Abbas has approached international and Arab officials in order to halt the demolitions.

Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat said “We will not renounce our lands, and everything that was demolished will be rebuilt.”

“The demolition is an implementation of the Bahrain conference and we have thousands of documents and petitions filed to the International Court of Justice in The Hague against Israel,” he said in reference to the economic peace conference in Bahrain sponsored by the United States that took place in June.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said “The demolition of buildings in Sur Baher by the authorities of the occupation is a despicable crime, which is a direct result of the Bahrain Conference and the warm relationship between Israel and some Arab nations.”

The Israeli military had no immediate comment on Monday, but a statement last week by Israel’s military-run civil administration in the West Bank said enforcement would be pursuant to “operational considerations” and “state policy.”

The International Court of Justice in The Hague issued an advisory opinion in 2004 that building the barrier on occupied territory was “contrary to international law.”

Israel dismissed the non-binding decision as politically motivated and says the barrier played a key role in drastically reducing the number of attacks, which peaked in 2002 and 2003 during the Second Palestinian uprising known as the Al-Aqsa Intifada.

The West Bank separation barrier, which was being built since 2003, was intended to pass through Sur Baher, but its route was changed due to residents’ campaign.Thus Wadi Hummus ended up on the Israeli side of the barrier, although legally it part of the West Bank and under the PA’s authority.

Many buildings were erected in the neighborhood over the last decade or so, most occupied by young couples and families from the village. The buildings set for demolition have some 100 apartments, 20 of which are tenanted and the rest are under construction.

Building permits for the construction were issued by the PA’s planning ministry. However, seven years ago, the Israel Defense Forces Central Command issued an injunction banning construction of buildings within 250 meters of the separation barrier.

Locals say the order was not publicized and they had no knowledge of it, and that in any case, it is the PA that has planning authorization in the area.

THE LONG AND UGLY HISTORY OF ZIONISM

Thus, the long and dirty history of Zionism should not be forgotten, but should finally be worked up without scruples and fear of defamation, because only then can the targeted Hasbara fight.

They openly admit that their work is dirty

The Infinitely Long and Dirty History of Zionism

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

The history of Zionism begins with contacts to the most violent ideologies, the most racist regimes and dictatorships and continues to this day as a thread through history. Rarely is it pointed out that Zionism is the official colonial settler colonial ideology of the “Jewish state”, which by definition is a thoroughly anti-Semitic ideology. Just the terms Israel as the “Jewish state” of the “Jewish people” or the audacity to speak out of this definition for all Jews worldwide. Not to mention the Zionist claim to call the illegal settlement policy and colonization of the state “Jewish value”. These “values” have always been based on the cooperation and support of fascist, right-wing and anti-Semitic, racist regimes and persons. Thus, the similarity between the two ideologies is obvious, as anti-Semites and Zionists agree that Jews are actually foreign in Europe, are not part of it and therefore are urged to go as settlers to the “Jewish state” in order to boost colonization and thus to inspire the final solution of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

Theodor Herzl: Anti-Semites become our most reliable friends

Already in the diaries of Theodor Herzl, the Zionist thinker who predicted in his colonial project more or less almost everything that we experience today refined, one can read the exposing sentences that “the governments of countries tormented by anti-Semitism will be very interested, helping us to gain the sovereignty we want. “He further notes in his diaries that” the anti-Semites are becoming our most trusted friends and the anti-Semitic countries our allies. ” I heard similar statements from Nahum Goldmann, a former president of the “Jewish World Congress. Israel and its lobby are still acting on these successful methods today. So today Israel offers an anti-Semitism “washing service” for historically fascist and nationalist political groups across Europe. All that groups have to do is express their “love of Israel” in order to get the kosher temple of the Netanyahu regime. This long-term and unfortunately quite successful strategy pursues the Zionist regime more perfidiously, even today. So these statements have come true. Let’s see Netanyahu and his unscrupulous politics, who are particularly good with far-right populists such as Hungarian President Orban or the infamous Brazilian President Bolsonario, as well as the Gulf rulers and dictators worldwide, all of whom support the “Jewish State”. Fit their ideologies, especially in the common fight against Muslims.

Ruthlessly, Netanyahu tries to straighten out the Israeli legal system in order to avoid corruption charges in this way. However, his cabinet is tailored to exactly that and amazes again and again by statements that would be in other countries, as well as in Germany, the offense of incitement meet. As an example among many is how the former Mossad chief and minister, the Eichmann hunter Raif Eitan, who died in March, praised the achievements of the AfD and its fight against Muslim immigration in Europe in 2018. The video of his performance corresponds exactly to the politics in the Jewish state “. (1) (2)

And corresponds to the ethnocracy project of the “Jewish state”, which is tailored to the needs and interests of the Jewish population, but completely at the expense of minorities in Israel. These non-Jewish minorities make up about a quarter of the population, the majority of them Palestinians who are discriminated against, harassed and criminalized.

Israel’s national state law reveals its racist nature

This ethnic project was completed in 2018 with the National State Act, when Israel self-proclaimed itself the “historical homeland of the Jewish people” and declared with complete undemocratic and unilateral “the right of national self-determination for the Jewish people in the State of Israel”. This law culminated in the process of ethnic cleansing of Palestine and fits into the context of the bloody Zionist history of the displacement of some 750,000 Palestinians in 1948 during the Nakba and continuing since 1967 with the systematic forced displacement, land grabbing and illegal settlement. From this perspective, this arbitrary apartheid law seems even more unlawful, as it wants to bring colonization and occupation into a constitutional order, but actually exposes the racist character.

In fact, one can not often point out that apartheid lives, flourishes and thrives in this Jewish ethnocracy and occupied Palestine. Why is this fact being denied philosemitically in Germany, in spite of overwhelming facts, and the “Jewish state” transfigured in an almost unappetizing manner?

The dehumanization of the Palestinians is subject to so many absurdities and is based on Zionist lies, such as Palestinians sacrificing their children for the fight against Jews while Jewish parents protect their children. Similarly, if they interpreted the right of return for Palestinians under international law as “destruction” of the “Jewish state”. In order to dehumanize and deny this legitimate concern. Likewise the tiresome demonization of Hamas, in order to push the blame for the appalling living conditions in Gaza, according to the motto of their own guilt in misfortune. While the Palestinians are portrayed as monsters who teach their children to kill Jews, ie the Israeli occupiers, Israeli brutalities are never seen as atrocities but as a necessary defense, even if snipers shoot cold-blooded defenseless Palestinians, even from behind. That is why every story of an oppressed Palestinian is so important and should find media coverage, because only then can one create empathy, which is unfortunately missing in German media.

South Africa’s apartheid experiences its “rebirth” in the “Jewish state”

Anyone who remembers the racist apartheid policy of South Africa is experiencing the “rebirth” even more perfidiously in the “Jewish state”. There are massive reprisals, checkpoints, passport laws, the demolition of homes and many homeless families, and not just the forced relocations of Palestinians for exclusively Jewish settlers are reminiscent of apartheid in South Africa. Especially Germany should remember the not so long past, with the resettlement of the eastern territories and occupation of other states and expulsion of people from their homeland. “Never again” in this context is a hypocritical lie.

The brutality of the Zionist occupying security forces is hard to beat; Their tortures, night attacks and atrocities, which do not stop at women and children, are legendary. This ruthlessness is compounded by the intelligence services. Thus, the “most moral defense army” has become more and more involved in violence without being punished. It is frightening how this army and state has managed to celebrate itself as the “only democracy” in the Middle East. So how can this Jewish apartheid state, without defined borders, insist on recognizing its “right to exist” and thereby legalizing international crimes and illegal occupation. As long as Palestine is not a free state, there can be neither a raison d’etat nor a legal right to exist.

Israeli politicians keep the threatened “chosen” people in a fighting mood

The racist rhetoric that we are experiencing here against Muslims has existed in the “Jewish state” for a long time. This Jewish racism, which is now showing itself in the public political debate, just as in the last election campaign, shows the final brutalization of the population, which always feels right and in the lying lie victim. Thus, the politicians have an easy game to keep their “chosen” people in Kampflaune.

Why are sanctions so generously imposed except when it concerns the “Jewish state”? Why do Germany and Europe close their eyes to the occupation crimes? Why are you selling and giving weapons to Israel, which is fueling war readiness? Why promote a cultural, scientific and youth exchange with a state that exists as the sole occupying state of the world and holds its own concentration camp, namely Gaza, as well as many ghettos in the occupied territories?

Surprisingly open Spiegel article about the Israel lobby

Because the Israel lobby, with the help of millions of state funds and countless donors, has managed to build up a network that reaches into the German Bundestag. I was surprised to read such an open article in the last “Spiegel” no. 29 entitled “Targeted Campaign. A German-Jewish and pro-Israeli association have drawn a network in the Bundestag – with questionable methods. ” These lobbyists are concerned with influencing German Middle East policy. We should quickly thank the three knowledgeable and courageous journalists for writing a clean, factual article without fear of consequences and the vile anti-Semitism charge. No wonder there is already the “cancerous ulcer” of the German media landscape, the “jumping image”, as well the other medial “fighting organ” of the Springer press in Berlin, the “BZ”, blows to the inflammatory drive hunt, which however the “mirror” can look forward calmly and book it rather as success. Because it shows that this fact report has really hit the mark, that the usual suspects are already in the Zionist starting blocks.

Those who have not yet known how the lobby controls Germany’s Middle East policy will finally find the facts – thanks to the “Spiegel”. Since Central President Schuster looks quite poor with his phrases of anti-Semitic stereotypes. Likewise all the politicians and publicists who feel called to pour their trash over the Spiegel article. Even Ali Erdan Toprak, chairman of the Kurdish community of Germany, is outraged by the “hair-torn report”. Where he gets his “expertise” on the Israel lobby, however, is a mystery to me! (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9)

So these are the reasons for the emergence of the outrageous anti-BDS decision. This bipartisan resolution, which came about in part on the initiative of the FDP and Minister of Health Spahn (a confessed friend of US ambassador and Israeli supporter Grenell), arguing that nothing but questionable and unproved theories that the BDS movement was anti-Semitic and that frighteningly elucidates how powerful in the meantime unimportant and more than controversial associations such as the so-called “value initiative”, founded three years ago by Elio Adler. The main thing is that they are Jewish and represent the “Jewish state”. It stuns one’s breath about what is now possible in Germany and how the balance of power is distributed. Describing the growing influence of the long arm of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and his lobbyists (Sayanim), this is described with alarming precision. Their influence on German Middle East policy is becoming increasingly apparent since the “Auschwitz Minister” Maas and Minister of Health Spahn came to the co-cabinet of the “Christian Zionist” Chancellor. For the first time, Germany (much to the delight of the Israel Lobby) voted against the annual World Health Organization (WHO) resolution on the (desolate) health situation in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem, and in the Syrian Golan occupied by Israel. What does that say about the humanitarian understanding of international law of a minister who went into politics “because of Auschwitz”? Their influence on German Middle East policy is becoming increasingly apparent since the “Auschwitz Minister” Maas and Minister of Health Spahn came to the co-cabinet of the “Christian Zionist” Chancellor. For the first time, Germany (much to the delight of the Israel Lobby) voted against the annual World Health Organization (WHO) resolution on the (desolate) health situation in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem, and in the Syrian Golan occupied by Israel. What does that say about the humanitarian understanding of international law of a minister who went into politics “because of Auschwitz”? Their influence on German Middle East policy is becoming increasingly apparent since the “Auschwitz Minister” Maas and Minister of Health Spahn came to the co-cabinet of the “Christian Zionist” Chancellor. For the first time, Germany (much to the delight of the Israel Lobby) voted against the annual World Health Organization (WHO) resolution on the (desolate) health situation in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem, and in the Syrian Golan occupied by Israel. What does that say about the humanitarian understanding of international law of a minister who went into politics “because of Auschwitz”? For the first time, Germany (much to the delight of the Israel Lobby) voted against the annual World Health Organization (WHO) resolution on the (desolate) health situation in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem, and in the Syrian Golan occupied by Israel. What does that say about the humanitarian understanding of international law of a minister who went into politics “because of Auschwitz”? For the first time, Germany (much to the delight of the Israel Lobby) voted against the annual World Health Organization (WHO) resolution on the (desolate) health situation in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem, and in the Syrian Golan occupied by Israel. What does that say about the humanitarian understanding of international law of a minister who went into politics “because of Auschwitz”?

In the spirit of Zionist propaganda

In the same context, the targeted and well-orchestrated campaign by the Central Council of Jews and its President Schuster, as well as “Israel Friends” from politics and the Lobby World Jewish Congress and its President Lauder (WJC), Springer Press, Lea Rosh, against the See the Jewish Museum in Berlin and its highly respected director and scholar Peter Schäfer, who ended with Schäfer’s “voluntary” resignation, and thus came before his expulsion. They wanted to bring down shepherds at any cost. It deliberately targets defamation against liberal institutions and delegitimization of these forces, which advocate a progressive civil society in Israel and a dialogue with Palestinian society. Now, the Jewish Museum is again to become a property of the Central Council – in the spirit of Zionist propaganda and in line with the policy of the “Jewish state”. Let’s not forget, this official museum, financed by the German state, taxpayers, is not owned by the State of Israel or the Central Council. This should also politicians like the left cultural senator Lederer, in whose account the attempted prevention of the award of the NRhZ-Karl Prize 2017 in Berlin is, as well as Minister of State Grütters not forget when they decide in the panel on the final successor of the museum director. This museum must endure and fully disseminate an objective representation of Judaism, combined with political debate and controversy. The future, however, looks grim.

As long as the Americans and Europeans do not muster the courage to loudly and loudly criticize the Israeli illegal occupation policy in violation of international law and do not allow this necessary criticism of the lobby to be denigrated as anti-Semitism and fall into the trap of anti-Semitism, this term is devalued and only untrustworthy. Similarly, the flood of anti-Semitism commissioners is obviously only called to deepen the media and propaganda work of the Israel lobby, because otherwise they have little “Kippa work” for lack of substance. Much more, however, and that should make us deeply worried that the fear and prejudice against Islam fueled by elites and certain media, and fueled by right-wing extremists, who are finding fertile ground in the masses, are completely insubstantial, because who of these Islamophobes already knows a Muslim or has ever seriously dealt with the Koran? But the same “decent” citizens, who once had the same reservations and rejections of Jews, today praise the “Christian-Jewish community of values.” “The lap is still fertile, from which this crept!” (Bertolt Brecht). So I can not repeat it often enough, in times of the AfD, the right-wing populists, the NSU murders and unrestrained philosemitism, we need racism officials instead of anti-Semitism commissioner! “The lap is still fertile, from which this crept!” (Bertolt Brecht). So I can not repeat it often enough, in times of the AfD, the right-wing populists, the NSU murders and unrestrained philosemitism, we need racism officials instead of anti-Semitism commissioner! “The lap is still fertile, from which this crept!” (Bertolt Brecht). So I can not repeat it often enough, in times of the AfD, the right-wing populists, the NSU murders and unrestrained philosemitism, we need racism officials instead of anti-Semitism commissioner!

Thus, the long and dirty history of Zionism should not be forgotten, but should finally be worked up without scruples and fear of defamation, because only then can the targeted Hasbara fight.

Take the “Never again” seriously

The criticism of the discriminatory and repressive policies of Israel, however, is imperative. Even if we are labeled as anti-Semitic, nothing should stop us from opening our mouths and saying what is. Only in this way can we stand up to apartheid in occupied Palestine. Where do the Hardcore Salon Zionists and Israeli “special” kind minds actually take the moral right to challenge ourselves and exclude international law and human rights when it comes to Israel, especially since they are understandably unwilling to engage “us” in discussions, because they have nothing to oppose the facts. Who actually gives the new anti-Semites the right to discriminate against Jews in Germany as anti-Semites, to block accounts, denying public spaces and banning freedom of expression for Jewish Israel critics? I expect a resolution of the Bundestag against the new persecution of Jews in Germany, which takes the “Never Again” seriously and – only 74 years after the liberation of Auschwitz – does not want to repay old guilt with a new one.

SETTLERS STEAL MORE THAN LAND FROM PALESTINIANS

Nearly 250 left-wing activists who donated money to help a Palestinian family in East Jerusalem’s Silwan neighborhood may discover that their money has ended up with the right-wing group Elad, which seeks to evict the family.

Funds Donated to Palestinian Family May Go to Settlers Trying to Evict It

The group Elad, which has been trying for 25 years to get the Siyam family to leave their home, has put a lien on donations to their cause

TURNING A BLIND EYE TO PALESTINE WON’T CEASE IT TO EXIST

Israel’s 10-meter high separation barrier and the country’s decades of indoctrination have blocked its view and allowed Israelis to simply stop seeing real live Palestinians — decidedly alive, even if not well, and determined to live normal lives.

Blind to Palestine

A Palestine That Israelis (And Trump) Can’t See

America is driving the car that is taking Israel over the cliff.

Sam Bahour

The status quo in Palestine and Israel is unsustainable. Anyone involved in the reality on the ground in this part of the world knows this for a fact. As such, one can view the current Palestinian consensus against Trump’s “Deal of the Century” and the planned “economic workshop” in Bahrain later this month as a last-ditch effort by the secular Palestinian leadership to save whatever may be remaining of the two-state paradigm as the basis to ending Israel’s 51 years of military occupation.

A significant driver of the current political paralysis is the stereotype, designed and propagated by Israelis, that Palestinians living on the other side of the separation barrier are violent and not deserving of freedom or independence. As such, most Israeli Jews do not see Palestinians as equal human beings, and thus any violent action against them becomes justified, no matter how cruel, illegal or in contradiction of Jewish values.

Nearly all Palestinians on the receiving end of this stereotype miraculously wake up every morning and — beyond doing their utmost to sustain a livelihood under miserable conditions — somehow remain focused on working toward realizing a future free of military occupation.

This stereotype, spread by Israeli authorities to foreign audiences and, sadly, inculcated through Israel’s state education system, is that any substantial relief or complete removal of the Israeli military occupation of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and Gaza, would result in a security risk. A similar fear-mongering strategy is used to dismiss the inalienable right of Palestinian refugees to return to Israel. In the meantime, Israel makes matters worse on the ground by, for example, continuing to build illegal, Jewish-only settlements.

Foreign countries, donors and international organizations have come around, albeit belatedly, to noting in their reports that the status quo is unsustainable. The data is there, in dizzying detail, for all to read.

Additionally, newspapers of record in Israel, France and America have started to editorialize with some hard questions, such as “Can Israel really be a Jewish (only) state?” and “Is a two-state solution still possible?” Even The New York Times questioned the future of Israel’s democratic character when it noted in an editorial: “One of Israel’s greatest strengths is its origins as a democratic state committed to liberal values and human rights. Those basic truths are in danger of being lost.” Human rights aside, there is no doubt that Israel is at a foundational crossroads.

The dominant narrative, especially in the United States — that any change in the status quo would put Israel in existential danger — is one that Israel has sustained for decades, spending hefty amounts on professional public relation firms and masters of spin to disseminate this message. Listening to world leaders and consuming today’s corporate media, the average person would have a hard time reaching a different conclusion.

Enter reality.

Israel’s 10-meter high separation barrier and the country’s decades of indoctrination have blocked its view and allowed Israelis to simply stop seeing real live Palestinians — decidedly alive, even if not well, and determined to live normal lives.

They can’t see an army of telecommunication engineers and call center operators struggling to create a commercially viable network with a full suite of services even though the needed access to the airwaves above Palestinians’ heads is restricted by Israel and imported equipment is routinely delayed — at times for years — at Israeli ports.

They can’t see an army of youth pocketing the latest 4G-enabled smartphones that are useless because the electromagnetic spectrum required to operate a 4G network is controlled by the Israel military, and therefore use of 4G frequencies — like pasta and crayons in Gaza, not long ago — is prohibited by Israel.

They can’t see the dozen or so business incubators that host innovative entrepreneurs, many of them women, who routinely pitch their ideas to investors and enter their business plans in competition, only to be vulnerable to failure because of the innumerable structural impediments imposed by the Israeli occupation.

They can’t see the amazing English publication produced in Ramallah that is dedicated to showing all that is positive about Palestine and Palestinians, be they those under military occupation, those in Israel or those living outside of the country.

They can’t see the 14 banks (with 358 branches and offices) and half-dozen or so equity capital funds that, day in and day out, seek viable businesses to invest in, only to end up with more funds than this militarily occupied market can absorb. They can’t see the enthusiastic young men and women at the Hereditary Research Lab at Bethlehem University exploring the genetics of hearing loss and breast cancer.

They can’t see hundreds of parents — yes, mothers and fathers — holding their children’s hands as they lead them to watch the performances of the Palestinian Circus School or Edward Said National Conservatory of Music.

They can’t see bank investment committee members toiling with the moral dilemma of financing projects in the besieged Gaza, when nothing in their formal education ever prepared them for the market risk of societal collapse that they must calculate into their decisions every day.

They were blind to the excitement and grassroots campaigning across cities and villages in the occupied Palestinian territory as West Bank residents went to the polls, again, for municipal elections. Today, they are blind to the fact that Palestine’s civil society continues to demand presidential and legislative elections, even as the occupation makes them almost impossible.

Israel is about to fall off the cliff

Most important, they also can’t see something much more serious than any of this — that the Israeli status quo, built on a cruel collective indifference, and the false glow of a rigged prosperity in which the Israeli public is basking can lead to only one outcome: collapse.

Socially, economically and definitely politically, Palestinians will not, and cannot, shelve their state building efforts, but their priority will rightly be on redoubling their efforts to thwart the Trump’s administration’s premeditated attempt to foreclose on Palestinian freedom and independence, effectively keeping the Israeli boot of occupation pressing on their necks.

Israelis may be living in utter denial of the peculiar and unsustainable reality they have created by the sheer might of force — but this is no excuse for the rest of the world, especially the United States, not to wake up and realize that ending the occupation has the potential to release a tremendous amount of positive energy in the Palestinian community — a necessary energy for a party to negotiate in good faith as it rebuilds its society from the ruins of decades of destitution.

Ending this military occupation, at long last, may not totally resolve the conflict. Yet in light of current trends putting Israel on a collision course with history, arranging for Palestinians to reach the point where they have real sovereignty over their affairs would be a huge step forward, one that could save many lives on both sides of that 10-meter high separation barrier.

JUDAISM ON THE ROAD TO RECOVERY

“Do you think Judaism will ever recover from having been hijacked by Zionism?”

Being Jewish Is Not The Same As Being Zionist!

Long past time to reclaim Judaism from Zionism

“Do you think Judaism will ever recover from having been hijacked by Zionism?” a friend recently asked me.

I have wrestled with a similar question for many years: how can the ethical precepts of Judaism—pursue justice, love your neighbor, love the stranger, repair the world—be reconciled with Zionism? Any Judaism I can believe in is at odds with this nationalist ideology, which claims that only a state controlled by Jews and privileging them over non-Jews can protect them against anti-Semitism and the threat of another Holocaust.

I did not always realize this.  When I was growing up in Tokyo, Japan, in the 1950s, I thought Judaism consisted only of rituals performed with Hebrew prayers and allegiance to the newly established state of Israel. Our small Jewish community, made up mainly of Ashkenazi emigres from Siberia like my father’s family and of Sephardi emigres from Syria and Lebanon, together with Israeli Embassy staff and American businesspeople, did not have a rabbi.

Perhaps that is why, instead of Judaism’s key ethical tenets, our Sunday School class was taught the story of Israel’s heroic founding, as recounted in Leon Uris’s novel “Exodus.”  No wonder I confused Zionism with Judaism, mistaking a political ideology of Jewish nationalism born in the late nineteenth century for an ancient religion rooted in the Torah and the Talmud.

The cover of Reclaiming Judaism from Zionism: Stories of Personal Transformation

Not until Israel’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon did I begin to question my idealized image of Israel and, ultimately, the premise of Zionism.  Israel’s indiscriminate bombing of Beirut, shelling of hospitals, and collusion with Lebanese Phalangist militias in massacres at the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps shook me to the core.

Struggling to digest these atrocities, I went to a teach-in. The main speaker contrasted Israel’s boasts of “making the desert bloom” with its destruction of thousands of Palestinian homes and olive trees. My stomach in knots, I recoiled from her message.

Only when I learned that she was not Palestinian but an Israeli Jewish human rights lawyer could I let her words penetrate my consciousness.

Back then, disputing Zionism felt very scary. It certainly isolated me from friends and family. I did not know that at the start of the Zionist movement, most Jews worldwide had opposed it. Even throughout World War II, Jewish opponents of Zionism continued to hold up an alternative vision for Palestine of a secular democratic state in which all citizens would enjoy equal rights. In 1947, they demanded freedom for the region’s “entire population” and a guarantee of “the national rights of both communities,” Jewish and Arab.

Although by 1948 the Holocaust convinced a majority that a Jewish state offered the best protection for Jews, Israel’s decades of ethnic cleansing and unending warfare—and Palestinians’ tenacious resistance—have since led me to understand that a Jewish state was a false solution to the quest for safety.

Over the years, I met more and more Jews who were questioning Zionist ideology. In 2016, the idea occurred to me of collecting their stories so others contending with the same doubts could know they were not alone. I designed the collection as a vehicle for initiating difficult conversations within Jewish families and communities, through stories with which readers could identify.

I began with a handful of acquaintances. Then I solicited narratives from people who told personal stories at public events, or wrote insightful op-eds, articles, or letters to the editor. I found more contributors when those I recruited spread the word through their networks.

To ensure that the collection reflected diverse backgrounds and perspectives, I made special efforts to seek out Sephardi/Mizrahi as well as Ashkenazi Jewish contributors. And in view of the leading role that college-age Jews are playing in the Palestine solidarity movement, I worked hard to enlist them. I ended up with forty fresh and deeply personal accounts.  This year, the book came to fruition, under the title Reclaiming Judaism from Zionism: Stories of Personal Transformation.

The collection defies the stereotype of Jews who reject Zionism as “self-hating.”  On the contrary, it reveals that many remain religious and observant, while others take pride in a secular Jewish identity intertwined with their progressive ideals. The authors include rabbis, historians of Jewish Studies and Middle Eastern Studies, other academics, lawyers, social workers, journalists and media professionals, activists, and recent graduates. Whether religious or secular, they have come to see Zionism as violating Judaism’s most sacred ethical principles.

The Torah commands Jews: “The stranger that sojourneth with you shall be unto you as the home-born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt” (Lev. 19:34).   Zionist ideology instead teaches Jews to treat Palestinians as strangers in their own land, enemies who must be expelled.

It is long past time to reclaim Judaism from Zionism, long past time for all who value the ethics of Judaism—or of simple humanity—to repudiate any ideology that denies Palestinians equality, freedom, and dignity.

WHINING AND DINING AT THE EXPENSE OF PALESTINE

Millions of Americans and Israelis have been raised on a steady diet of pro-Israeli propaganda know just one side of Middle East history: that of oppressed-but-feisty Jews fighting violent-and-treacherous Arabs. They think only Israelis bleed and only Palestinians make them.

It is weird how the Israeli propaganda occupies headlines to whitewash the Israeli crystal-clear crimes.

Israelis and Americans Would Act Just Like Palestinians Do Today

The situation is volatile, a veritable tinderbox. If the Mideast blows up, many will die, Palestinians and Israelis.

 

Israel never stops claiming that it’s forced to defend itself from Palestinians. The threats it sees range from underage children throwing stones at armored military vehicles to rocket attacks from Gaza. The self-proclaimed Jewish state never asks why the stones are thrown or the rockets are fired.

Worse, Israel assumes that America would respond similarly if faced with these same security threats by Canada. In fact, Americans would ask why neighbors they’ve lived in peace with (like Jews and Arabs in the Levant) felt the need to defend themselves.

The answer is found in both versions of the movie, Red Dawn. Each shows Americans rising up against invaders/occupiers (one Russian, the other North Koreanby any means necessary. In short, US citizens, and Jewish Israeli citizens for that matter, would act just like Palestinians do today, only much more violently given their means.

Millions of Americans and Israelis have been raised on a steady diet of pro-Israeli propaganda know just one side of Middle East history: that of oppressed-but-feisty Jews fighting violent-and-treacherous Arabs. They think only Israelis bleed and only Palestinians make them. Israel has a name and governmental department in the Prime Minister’s office for such propaganda — it’s called Hasbara (see The Hasbara Apparatus by Molad — The Center for the Renewal of Israeli Democracy).

All of this state propaganda, today more than ever, seeks to engage in character assassinations of anyone calling Israel out for its violations of Palestinians’ rights by claiming that they are anti-Semitic. The US government, from the president on down, have joined this chorus, with the Israeli prime minister playing the role of the conductor.

Which is, of course, a lie.

After all, Jews and Arabs (Muslims and Christians) are both Semites. They are cousins who lived in peace for millennia. Then Zionism arose: the idea that European Jews needed a refuge from real antisemitism.

So far, so good. Everyone wants and deserves to feel safe in the world.

Zionists considered many places for such safety: from Uganda to Argentina, just to name two. In 1903, Theodor Herzl, the founder of Zionism, himself, presented the Uganda option at the Sixth Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland.

Again, so far, so good, as long as merely a safe haven was sought out. Problems arose when they chose the Levant post-WWI and redefined their goal.

The first problem was that people (Arab Palestinians) already lived there.

The second problem was Zionists changing their goal from a secular home to a religion-based state. They began insisting that God gave Jews all of the Levant, an argument impossible to reason with and one that the U.S. Ambassador to Israel, David M. Friedman, reiterated earlier this month by saying “Israel has one secret weapon that not too many countries have, Israel is on the side of God, and we don’t underestimate that.

The third problem was the new Jews flooding the land were foreigners to it, not culturally like the Old Yishuv (native) Jews — Jews living in places like Jerusalem, Safed, Tiberias and Hebron before the aliyah (immigration wave) by the Zionist movement.

Worse, Britain gave more than half of the Levant to Jews as a home (not state!). Even so, Jews wanted more. So, they began to terrorize Arabs living in what would become Israel, then violently overran what was to be the State of Palestine. Peter Kosminsky’s four-part drama serial, The Promise (2011), powerfully unravels this segment of history.

Stopped by the international community, seemingly contrite Jews promised to set borders (not expand) and give all Israelis equal rights, the majority and minorities. Yet for the next 70 years they refused to do either. Instead, they continued to kill and harass Palestinians, stealing Arab land and treating Muslims and Christians living in Israel as inferiors. This rampage was then extended to the rest of Palestine in 1967.

Israel did this by getting endless money and weaponry from Europe and America, immunity per international laws/rulings, and by making the United Nations (later under the Oslo Peace Accords, the donor community) pay for their military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The result: seven decades of Palestinians living as (1) refugees outside Historic Palestine; (2) prisoners in a huge concentration camp inside Gaza; and (3) corralled ‘cattle’ in a West Bank that increasingly shrinks from illegal Israeli settlements.

Of course, just as the ministries and departments of “propaganda” that were used by dozens of failed states throughout history had done, Israel continued to paint themselves as eternal victims. This is seen as the failproof strategy until, that is, it abruptly collapses. Israeli Hasbara always portrays Israel’s crimes as necessary to protect innocent Jews from merciless Arab savages(think portrayal of native Indians in the US Declaration of Independence). In today’s hyper-connected world, such a strategy is collapsing in broad daylight.

What if Roles Reversed?

The truth is that, if placed in the same ill-fated predicament, Americans and Israelis would act just like Palestinians do today; some would use violence, like what emerged from Gaza recently. This is not to say that this is a smart or effective strategy, it merely is a human reaction when a community feels no other path to live exists.

Others, the majority, would use diplomatic and non-violent methods to protect their community, like boycotting and divesting from their occupier and refusing to attend an “economic workshop” called for by a third party in a foreign venue aimed at beautifying life in their cages of military occupation. These non-violent strategies would become a rallying call to mobilize all four corners of the earth to hold the occupying state accountable.

Imagine, for example, China suddenly invading New York City claiming that a Golden Sky-Dragon gave it all of Manhattan. Imagine further that native New Yorkers were forced into just two boroughs, all their assets forfeited. Furthermore, every aspect of their new lives will be controlled by the Red Army.

Suppose further that Russia, North Korea, and others block UN resolutions to punish China, and funds its illegal invasion/occupation. How long do you think red-blooded Americans would put up with that and not fight back?

Palestinians have tried every form of protest — from armed resistance to civil disobedience to negotiations to lawsuits to boycotts. Nothing has worked. Israel, like 18th-century England (the US Declaration of Independence lists 27 grievances that British King George III ignored), blocks all forms of redress while continuing to kill, land grab, and steal resources.

Palestinians are being pushed into ever-smaller enclaves with less and less to lose. The situation is volatile, a veritable tinderbox. If the Mideast blows up, many will die, Palestinians and Israelis. It would be a historic tragedy for history to look back, yet again, and question how a developed, modern society allowed itself to be governed into never-ending turmoil.

WHAT WOULD HITLER DO?

Let us not let the German Reichstag tradition become part of the Bundestag tradition and let us not allow the German parliament and its representatives to empower unconditionally to support the “Jewish state” and to forget Palestine.

In Old Tradition: From the Reichstag to the Bundestag- From Antisemitism to Philosemitism, A Short Way

 Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

 

Fatal and shameful, what took place last week in the German Bundestag.Indeed, one felt reminded of Reichstag times, when Jews were discriminated and marginalized in Germany. This time, however, all “democratic” parties together voted for a ban on the BDS movement. It strongly reminded of the “Enabling Act” of March 24, 1933, the official law for the relief of the people and the Reich. Only the SPD voted against it then. So how can you compare “Enabling Act” and the anti-BDS motion, which “resolutely” opposes the BDS movement and wants to fight anti-Semitism? One can, because both decisions are deliberately not “constitutional”. Does not our constitution clearly state the right to freedom of expression?

Bundestag resolution “authorizes” to anti-Semitism and disregard of human rights

So how can it be reconciled with voting on a motion that would “empower” German politicians to take anti-human rights, anti-liberal and anti-Semitic courses, especially against Jewish citizens who support the Use liberation of Palestine? (1)

With this motion, the members of the Bundestag of the non-violent BDS campaign, founded in the middle of Palestinian civil society, have stamped an “anti-Semitism” stamp, which is as bizarre as it gets. What is anti-Semitic when, after decades of Israeli colonial occupation, civilians take over and – inspired by the struggle of the South Africans against apartheid – boycott, divest and sanction the occupying power to induce Israel to conquer and colonize all Arab countries stop the illegal wall, as called upon by the International Court of Justice, to recognize the fundamental right of Israel’s Arab-Palestinian citizens to be fully equal.

As long as the Israeli government continues to pursue this illegal and colonialist policy to the detriment of the Palestinians, which makes them suffer in the “heartland” as well as in the illegally occupied territories under apartheid, the world-wide growing BDS movement will continue to fight non-violently for its goals, until Israel respects international law and recognizes the inalienable rights of the Palestinians, including the right to self-determination.

No cooperation with a state of apartheid

There is only one historical responsibility that we must face together, no privileged economic, military and scientific cooperation with a state that calls itself a “Jewish State” and thus promotes demarcation and exploits anti-Semitism as a concept of struggle against criticism. They use the wrong comparison of the “do not buy” label with the Nazi slogan “Do not buy from the Jew” as evidence of anti-Semitism. A vicious and baseless defamation, concocted by the Hasbara of the Netanyahu regime and the Israel lobby, with the targeted non-violent, but quite successful movement is to be met.

One can only warn of the consequences of this proposal if one no longer wants to promote organizations that promote Palestinian freedom and support BDS and refuse to grant municipalities and facilities to organizations that want to provide information in events.

So how can democratic German parties, and especially the FDP, which has the word “free” in its party context, but BDS supporters with the above measures a muzzle want to hang over; as well the AfD, whose similarity becomes more and more unmistakable, in many points. The went one step further and wanted to prohibit the BDS movement completely. (2)

A tremendous attack on the fundamental right of freedom of expression and discussion

Under the pretext of combating anti-Semitism, did this petition serve merely as a fig leaf to stifle any protest against Israel’s illegal occupation policy and to stop a campaign that exclusively addresses international law and resolutions also accepted by Israel? With this tremendous attack on the fundamental right of freedom of expression and freedom of discussion, the FDP and the other parties have done a disservice to freedom.

However, all of them shared the complete ignorance of the BDS movement and the fixation on the whisperings of the Israel lobby and their false arguments. It was only too understandable that the newly elected Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, who has just been accused of corruption, and has already tried to evade judicial reform, welcomed this Bundestag motion condemning the BDS campaign as an “important decision”. In fact, he congratulated parliamentarians for stigmatizing the BDS movement as anti-Semitic, and was glad to be called upon to stop funding organizations working “against the existence” of the state of Israel. Germany as a pioneer in Europe is a bad role model, even if this application has no legal effect.

In fact, all the members of the Bundestag who support this motion should ask themselves whether they really do comply with international law and the constitution after this poisoned praise, especially from this lying dog.After this motion, which is trampling on the rights of the Palestinians and based fully on the propaganda of the Israel lobby, how can we speak of democratic decisions? Above all, because there were in advance a call of 66 Jewish-Israeli scientists to the deputies, BDS not categorize with anti-Semitism, and warned vehemently against the threat to the liberal-democratic order in Germany! However, these were not heard, and again we experience that only 74 years after the liberation of Auschwitz Jewish scientists in the German Bundestag are ignored and marginalized! You simply did not want to hear the truth because you could not argue against it with valid arguments. Should not that be a wake-up call? (5) (6)

Betrayal of international law

Like the German government and the parliament, certain media are behind the fake anti-Semitism charges and stand for a “right of existence for the Jewish state,” which has no defined border until today, support the raison d’etat for the “security of the Jewish state” and complicit in the crimes of ethnic cleansing, military occupation and apartheid. Where is the right of existence of Palestine? This betrayal of international law makes Germany and its parliament completely untrustworthy.

Both Germany, the USA and the “Jewish State” are quick to be involved in boycotts and sanctions against Russia, Iran or Turkey, again and again with reference to international law and human rights. All of these arguments do not count with Israel, which has disregarded these rights for decades, with reference to German guilt and eternal responsibility, which sanctifies all means for the “Jewish state”.

On the heels were prizes and rewards for the media help of the “unconditional” Israeli supporter – the self-confessed “non-Jewish” Zionist Springer boss Döpfner, who was awarded the Leo Baeck Prize by the Central Council of Jews. One of the laudators, Ronald S. Lauder, President of the World Jewish Congress, praised drippingly, “Döpfner is a man of courage and decency, representing all the noble qualities one associates with Germany. He never met a man who, like Döpfner, fought simultaneously against communism and totalitarianism and was a defender of the “Jewish people”. “We experience this” rush-fight “every day in the Bild-Blöd-Zeitung. (7)

Even Merkel must not go out empty handed, the “Christian Zionist will receive the Buber Rosenzweig Medal in 2020, as the Society for” Christian-Jewish Cooperation “announced. Whether Merkel still has a place for the umpteenth Jewish Prize? But she has a big cross! (8th)

Stop Israel’s Crimes by Boycott! Oppose the Reichstag tradition!

There is only one way to stop Israel, the boycott that has successfully ended apartheid in South Africa. So the conscientious all over the world are called upon to finally join the peaceful BDS movement, to support the economic sanctions, the cultural and scientific boycott and finally to treat the “Jewish state” like any other that has so far ignored all rules.

The Gaza blockade, which keeps two million people in a concentration camp, the constant air strikes, wars against sovereign neighbors, the non-return of the Golan Heights and the undivided Jerusalem as the eternal capital of a “Jewish state”, the disregard of all rules shown by it, must not be supported by Germany and its “representatives of the people”. The Judaisierung should not be further promoted. Only together we are strong to show these politicians and deputies the red card. In any case, I no longer see myself represented in the coming European elections.

Let us not let the German Reichstag tradition become part of the Bundestag tradition and let us not allow the German parliament and its representatives to empower unconditionally to support the “Jewish state” and to forget Palestine. From anti-Semitism it went into the philosemitism, it is a short way, according to the will and propaganda of the Israel supporters. Let’s never forget what I have been saying for years: “Zionism threatens us ALL”

What Melody Sucharewicz spread on evil and hateful Hasbara was unprecedented. (2) Was this “Israeli combat drone” from Tel Aviv flown in from the “Jewish state” at the expense of German payers, or was it already in Germany to carry out its 2006 job as an unofficial propaganda ambassador to Israel and its ardent support for the Zionist Exercise occupier regime here? Who launched this obvious propaganda campaign for the ARD? The Israeli embassy certainly did not have to put pressure.The ARD is willing for it. This woman, darling of the Bild-Zeitung and right-wing extremist blogs like PI-News, was struck by 2018 as “hard but fair” as unpleasant as merciless Israel lobbyists – according to the motto “The Palestinians are to blame for the failure of all peace efforts”. At the same time, it included the illegally occupied West Bank as an integral part of a “Greater Israel”. The fact that the apple does not fall far from the tree, is also shown by her father as founder and longtime chairman of the likewise propagandistic platform ILI (I like Israel), for which she also hosted the Israel Day. It was a déjà vu with this “political advisor”. If the then Plasberg broadcast was intended for the 70th anniversary of the State of Israel, the Will program was probably intended as a harbinger to the 71st birthday, a state that is built on the ruins of Palestine, but judaic and ethnically cleaned and “free of Palestinians “. also shows her father as the founder and longtime chairman of the likewise propagandistic platform ILI (I like Israel), for which she has already moderated at the Israel Day. It was a déjà vu with this “political advisor”. If the then Plasberg broadcast was intended for the 70th anniversary of the State of Israel, the Will program was probably intended as a harbinger to the 71st birthday, a state that is built on the ruins of Palestine, but judaic and ethnically cleaned and “free of Palestinians “. also shows her father as the founder and longtime chairman of the likewise propagandistic platform ILI (I like Israel), for which she has already moderated at the Israel Day. It was a déjà vu with this “political advisor”. If the then Plasberg broadcast was intended for the 70th anniversary of the State of Israel, the Will program was probably intended as a harbinger to the 71st birthday, a state that is built on the ruins of Palestine, but judaic and ethnically cleaned and “free of Palestinians “.

It is not Iran and the “mullahs” that threaten the “Jewish state”, as the Israeli propagandist repeatedly asserts, but the other way round: it is the Netanyahu regime that has been using Iran as a monster state for years with ridiculous fake news has built up. Everything is a fatal reminder of the Iraq war, which was known to have been started by the lie propaganda of the Bush administration and even then the stirring “Jewish state”! And even then it was the aggressive John Bolton who advised Bush and now repeats the same dirty methods with Trump!

USA-Israel: the “axis of evil”?

And it is the USA that has been threatening world peace for years with its extermination campaigns. US treaties are not worth the paper they’re written on, and we see what kind of spirit this President Trump is that breaks international treaties, unilaterally terminates, and seeks to blackmail his deals. In fact, he praises himself and his presidency for it.Astonishingly calm, Iran reacted to the sanctions and threats of these two “rogue states” USA and Israel, or should I say “the axis of evil”? Or is “the two apocalyptic riders” even more appropriate?

Following the unilateral termination of the contract by Trump Iran was, after all, go into the country a year without the EU has moved towards a solution acceptable to Iran agreement, and only then to announce that he no longer feels bound by the compliance of the nuclear agreement. This is more than understandable after the collapse of the EU. After all, unlike the US, Iran has kept the treaty. It is therefore more than brazen for German Foreign Minister Maas to call on Iran to comply with the nuclear agreement before meeting with his US counterpart Pompeo in Brussels! Obviously, he is too cowardly to turn to the right, indeed defaulting, addressee.

It is unbearable how manipulated Israeli propagandist Sucharewicz is to present her “suspicion” that Iran could secretly make nuclear weapons, as a factual statement, especially given that Israel possesses nuclear weapons but has not yet signed the NPT and does not need to fear IAEA inspections.

The Zionist regime: one of the most dangerous warmongers

The propagandist repeats Iran’s government-sponsored mantra as a state sponsor of terror and warns against “appeasement” against Iran, which is more than blatant, because we know that Israel has nursed Syrian terrorists into its hospitals. And let us not forget that thanks to European and German help, the Zionist regime has also accumulated an arsenal of weapons that makes it one of the most dangerous warmongers in the region.

Unlike Iran, which has never fought a war of aggression, the “Jewish nuclear state” is a dangerous aggressor against all its neighbors, which threatens world peace. He runs a more than inflammatory policy that wants to lead us into belligerent and aggressive politics that cost us dearly.As the saying goes: hang on – catch!

The German politicians and the media have completely submitted to the Israeli war rhetoric and regard this state as an eternal victim – after the horrors of the Holocaust. The best example is the more than disastrous foreign policy of the “Auschwitz Minister” Maas, who pursues such a mercilessly one-sided pro-Israel policy that it is extreme even by German standards. Obviously the influence of his national-racist girlfriend Ayelet Shaked, and her “fascism” perfume. Did the beguiling scent infatuate the “Auschwitz Minister” and cloud the brain? (3)

Vassal policy towards the “dealer state” USA end!

His policies towards Russia and Turkey, as well as his support for the coup attempt in Venezuela, make speechless and will most likely lead the SPD into single digits. After an unprecedented policy of sanctions against Russia and Iran, with the Trump-Bolton-USA hitting a “total sanctions war” that hits and harms Europe as well, it is overdue, finally, the vassal policy towards the “dealer state” USA to end.

Was not the transfer of US aircraft carriers because of the “Iranian threat” not on the advice of the Mossad done, which interferes more and more in international politics and pulls the strings? Who is behind the US classification of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards as a “terrorist organization”, just like the model of the Palestinian resistance organization Hamas, which also got this dubious US title. Everything influenced by the Zionist friends, the “Jewish state terror state”.

Is it still possible to speak of “German values” when the Bundeswehr trains Saudi soldiers, cooperates with the Jewish “Defense” and Occupying Forces, conducts “war missions” throughout the world, from Afghanistan to Mali?What is to be maintained that only 74 years after the end of the war an aggressive NATO policy is supported, with operations in the Baltic States, and as known only the enemy’s image of Russia.

How long do we want to get caught up in the US and the “Jewish state” by the hawks and let their propagandists run free? After all, if it came to the Iran attack, Europe would be directly affected. It’s better not to imagine what happens if there is an attack or civil war in Iran. So, is it still enough to affirm that one is holding on to the nuclear deal with Iran, but in fact doing absolutely nothing to uphold it? If the Europeans rightly blame Washington for escalating in the Middle East and consider it a fire hazard, then they should act accordingly.

An inferno threatens a US invasion of Iran

If there were a US invasion of Iran, an inferno, as we are now experiencing, could be threatened in Yemen, also thanks to German support from Saudi troops. How did a UN High Commissioner say? German weapons are now encountered around the world. Truly, what an export hit!

It must finally come to an end with a policy of “regime change”, with which one already drives poor countries into ruin, in order to take over power with their willing substitutes. If one of the main causes of unbridled Iran hatred is not the failure to topple Syrian President Assad, this attempt failed miserably, thanks to the intervention of Russia and Iran, but it brought millions of refugees. The Netanyahu regime was richly rewarded by Trump by giving them the Golan Heights “eternally Jewish” in violation of international law.

President Erdogan hit a bull’s-eye as he banned criticism of his policy by saying, “Anyone who tries to overthrow the elected head of state of Venezuela can not talk to us about democracy.” How true!

Let’s fear the Trump world order and its “century deals” that will go down in history as the worst US era of the decade. Yes, these US warmongers are in desperate need of a concrete answer they deserve. How Europe wants to meet these challenges despite great protestations, however, remains a mystery, as the whole German foreign policy. As long as this does not finally get rid of its decades of subjugation to Israel, with an immediate stop the German state rationale for Israel’s “security”, which conceals only an unprecedented support of this international law breaking “Jewish state”, however, all effort remains in vain. Do “targeted killings” correspond to our so-called “Christian-Jewish values”?

Counteract the infiltration of parties and media through Zionist-Evangelical networks!

Let’s not continue to let the Hasbara influence and manipulate politicians and the media as a strategic weapon. It is a multi-million dollar multi-faceted weapon adapted to the digital age. It has its roots in past concepts and propaganda, agitation, censorship and intimidation, up to extortion.Think tanks coordinate and “sell” everything with false, one-sided arguments. Zionist-evangelical networks have infiltrated parties and the media in order to whitewash Israeli occupation policy with campaigns of all kinds, to make the Judaization of Palestine and the ethnic cleansing of Palestine “Kosher”. They work with ignorance and feelings of guilt, and ruthlessly become politicians unfamiliar with the instrumentalisation of the Holocaust and anti-Semitism allegations. Journalists and activists intimidated and slandered. Sponsored journeys with journalists then “lighten up” the uncritical jubilation articles.

We should all defend ourselves against such openly publicized manipulations of Israeli propagandists and warmongers in the “public law”! As coercive payers, we have a right to objective reporting, with different opinions, but above all, to stick to the truth: “All great political action is to utter what is and begins with it. All political petty-mindedness consists in the concealment and complimenting what is. “(Ferdinand Lassalle)

AFTER YOU READ THIS YOU WILL HAVE NO DOUBTS THAT ZIONISM IS RACISM

“Yes, we’re racists. We believe in racism… There are races in the world and peoples have genetic traits, and that requires us to try to help them,” he said. “The Jews are a more successful race.”

Embracing racism, rabbis at pre-army yeshiva laud Hitler, urge enslaving Arabs

Recordings show instructors at settlement academy openly promoting Jewish supremacy; principal says Arabs want to live under Israeli occupation due to their genetic inferiority

Two rabbis at a pre-military religious academy in a West Bank settlement were recorded making derogatory and racist comments about Arabs, defending Adolf Hitler’s worldview, and openly promoting Jewish supremacy.

In a series of undated recordings published by Channel 13 news on Monday, Rabbi Eliezer Kashtiel, the head of the Bnei David academy in Eli, can be heard calling for the enslavement of the “stupid and violent” non-Jews due to their genetic inferiority.

“All around us, we are surrounded by peoples with genetic problems. Ask a simple Arab ‘where do you want to be?’ He wants to be under the occupation. Why? Because they have genetic problems, they don’t know how to run a country, they don’t know how to do anything. Look at them.”

In the lecture, Kashtiel goes on to embrace racism against non-Jews.

“Yes, we’re racists. We believe in racism… There are races in the world and peoples have genetic traits, and that requires us to try to help them,” he said. “The Jews are a more successful race.”

In another clip from the Bnei David Yeshiva published by Channel 13, Rabbi Giora Redler can be heard praising Hilter’s ideology during a lesson about the Holocaust.

“Let’s just start with whether Hitler was right or not,” he told students. “He was the most correct person there ever was, and was correct in every word he said… he was just on the wrong side.”

Redler goes on to say that pluralism is the “real” genocide being perpetrated against the Jewish people, not Nazi Germany’s Final Solution.

“The real Holocaust was not when they murdered the Jews, that’s not it. All these excuses — that it was ideological or systematic — are nonsense,” he said. “Humanism, and the secular culture of ‘We believe in man,’ that’s the Holocaust.”

The comments drew wide condemnation from opposition lawmakers who called for pulling all state funding to the Eli-based academy over Kashtiel’s and Redler’s remarks.

“This is not Judaism, and these are not our values,” Blue and White MK Yair Lapid said in a statement. “People who talk this way are not worthy of calling themselves rabbis… the state needs to stop funding this program until the racist rabbis are removed.”

ANTI ZIONISM MUST NOT BE CONFUSED WITH ANTI SEMITSM

We must not let up in the fight for a free Palestine from the River to the Sea. We must defend ourselves against it if Israel criticism is compulsorily criminalized as anti-Semitism

When Israel criticism is obligatorily criminalized as anti-Semitism

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

Where the mass media machinery of Putin’s and Erdogan’s demonization has once again been massively set in motion, one wonders at the silence on Netanyahu following the Israeli elections. These showed once again in a frightening way that the “Jewish state” is unwilling to give up the occupation of Palestine. The occupiers have settled down well with Zionist arrogance in this Jewish apartheid state. Especially since they do not have to fear any pressure on the part of the so-called “community of values” to change this illegal state. Jewish citizens feel ethnically superior – after the ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

Western fire due to a Russian offer

While Russia and President Putin are being called for allegedly “hybrid warfare” because he signed a decree after the election in Ukraine, according to which the citizens of the “people’s republics” in Eastern Ukraine should receive Russian passports without the usual preconditions.It is also thought possible to offer Russian citizenship in general, provided that they speak Russian. Already the western fire started and the EU and the US criticized this suggestion as a slap in the face against the “peace efforts” in the eastern Ukraine.

One wonders what peace efforts are meant? Remember the billions of US sums spent in the run-up to the Ukrainian uprising, the NATO creep, and the efforts to put Ukraine on a “NATO course” and EU accession. All this was an unparalleled affair for Russia, which was answered with the reintegration of the Crimea, a more than understandable step confirmed by a popular referendum. So what is more obvious than offering these facilities to the Ukrainian citizens? After all, everyone is free to respond.

No western fire after annexations of the “Jewish state”

In contrast, the “Jewish state” occupied the Syrian Golan since the “Six-Day War” in 1967 and annexed it since 1981, without much shouting from the “community of values”. No wonder that the “Jewish state” now declared this illegally occupied Syrian territory the eternal “property” of the “Jewish state”. Contrary to international law, but confirmed by Trump’s Decree, which recognizes the US’s membership of the Syrian Golan Heights formally belonging to Israel. Trump defended his further taboo on the transfer of the US embassy to Jerusalem and justified it as a logical step in pursuing his policy. He even bragged that he was doing everything that other US presidents had considered before him, but had not dared.Netanyahu could do nothing better than this “poisonous” election gift, which helped him to his re-election. Just as Trump legitimized the Jewish occupation here and international law was trampled under foot, every description mocks and is a provocation against the inactive state community. This incredible violation of Syrian sovereignty joins the unrestrained hegemony claim of the US and its Jewish vassal in tow.

Although the EU and Germany criticized this decision, but at least consider the Golan Heights as occupied territory and do not recognize the sovereignty of Israel, as a spokeswoman for the EU emphasized. Through this formal recognition of the Golan Heights and the approximately 20,000 Israeli residents as belonging to the “Jewish State”, the US violated a UN Security Council Resolution, which they had themselves adopted in 1981.Here again shows that the US under Trump are no longer willing to recognize treaties, decisions, international law or human rights, but are only governed by the autocratic Trump’s “dealer policy”. As a partner they are completely unfit, which should finally be acknowledged with a consistent response.

Extraordinary influence of the Israel lobby

Although criticism of the “Jewish state” is mildly practiced, it has no effect, because unlike in Russia, there are no sanction threats, let alone punishable threats. Thus, while every means in Russia is right to enforce its own power policy, this important instrument in dealing with the “Jewish state” is completely inadequate. Why is this so good for this apartheid state? Because, and this needs to be addressed again, the Israel lobby has such an extraordinary influence, especially in the US, but also globally networked. With the undisguised instrumentalization and use of the victim role, with recurring Holocaust reference as a threat, the “Jewish State” repeatedly succeeds in criminalizing and silencing its critics. Brand criticism as anti-Semitism,

In fact, the “uniqueness” of this Jewish occupation state is frightening as the “most moral” of all Jewish “defense armies” openly admit to being there to protect the settlements in the occupied West Bank, Judaize the occupied Jerusalem, by all means. These murderous soldiers volunteer and do not shy away from killing Palestinians, firing at teenagers, paramedics or elderly and women, or even shooting them in the helpless and shackled state “on the run”, often in the back. They enjoy it when they keep the occupied in fear, which makes this army in the Jewish population so popular. Palestinians are bitter victims who, deprived of all rights, have to watch helplessly as they rob their land, destroying their homes and making them feel like they are worthless. The Palestinian “does not count and vote”. This also contributed to the fact that fewer and fewer Israeli Palestinians were voting, also thanks to intimidation attempts, such as Likud camera surveillance. The result was then according to the wishes of the Netanyahu regime.

Israel’s policy of annihilation and ethnic cleansing

Remember the Israel Defense Forces t-shirts that featured imprints, such as a pregnant Palestinian woman with a cross hairs over her stomach and the inhuman slogan “One shot, two kills.” As well as the racist slogans of former Justice Minister Shaked, one should kill Palestinians and their “brood”, as well as the racist settlers, “death to the Arabs” and murders that are always hushed up and always remain as good as unpunished.Does it still need stronger evidence that Jewish occupation policy towards the Palestinians is a policy of annihilation and ethnic cleansing?

A recent survey revealed that the majority of Jewish Israelis reject the establishment of a Palestinian state. A majority of 53 percent of this group also rejects conflict resolution based on the establishment of an independent Palestinian state alongside the “Jewish state”. Only a meager 22 percent of Jews still believe in the founding of a Palestinian state. In the meantime, the issue of annexation has gained in importance since Netanyahu made his election pledge to annex parts of the occupied West Bank and not to dissolve a colonial settlement.

“Deal of the Century” to Ramadan?

He summed up this provocation in these words: “I will extend the sovereignty of the ‘Jewish state’ to the West Bank and not differentiate between the settlement blocks and the isolated settlements.” Most of these settlements are in what is known as Area C, which is about 60 percent Palestinian Territory and where about 300,000 Palestinians live.Everything was agreed exactly with the Trump government and, according to US Secretary of State Pompeo, would be in line with the upcoming “Deal of the Century” by Kushner and Greenblatt. This repeatedly announced and now again until after the end of the Muslim month of fasting Ramadan, which takes place this year in early May to early June, delayed deal should be announced thereafter. It almost seems

Since the BDS movement grew stronger and stronger, it became more and more the preferred “Jewish war aim”. Increasingly, attempts are being made to suppress freedom of expression and to suppress facts and truths that discredit the “Jewish state”. For example, the Israel lobby is avoiding sitting down and discussing with activists or Israel critics, as has been suggested so often. Of course, for good reason, because the defeat would be too clear for lack of valid and convincing counter-arguments. It gets even more dangerous if, under pressure from the extremely active pro-Israel lobby in the German parliament, we should proceed with dubious bills against organizations and supporters of BDS or Israel critics.

Punish war crimes and crimes against humanity!

The atrocities committed by decades of occupation by the Zionist regime, the multiple war crimes, child murders, and genocide in Gaza must finally be labeled and punished for what they are: a war crime and a crime against humanity. The international community must finally stand up for freedom of expression and express the unpleasant truth that the “Jewish apartheid state” is not a democracy and must be treated as normally as any other state that carries out an ethnic cleansing policy.

We must not let up in the fight for a free Palestine from the River to the Sea. We must defend ourselves against it if Israel criticism is compulsorily criminalized as anti-Semitism!

THE ETERNAL SHAME OF ZIONIST CRIMES

The eternal shame of the Jewish Zionist crimes screams for remorse and atonement!

Zionist Herods and the Massacre of the Innocents

The eternal shame of the Jewish Zionist crimes

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

 

As of 2007, the German edition of Ilan Pappe’s “The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine” appeared, at that time in the publishing Zweitausendeins, and I held the book for the first time in their hands and read it, it was like a horror message – a message that made me to accompanied today. So the incredible crimes in detail before and get portrayed in 1948 after the establishment of the “Jewish state,” this incredible brutality in its mercilessness, just three years after the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp, shocked and left me speechless. I wondered how it is possible that a “Jewish state,” Jewish people, so brutal and forgotten history of another people, so the indigenous population, ethnically cleanse, drive them from their land and property, and murder humiliate could. Had they forgotten everything human, them was the last remnant, lost to morality in order to act so recklessly? Did they really that the Holocaust justifies all means to annex already populated country to have international law aside and to contact human rights underfoot?

Understand the core conflict in the Middle East

Thankfully, on May 2, in the month of Nakba, the new edition of the above-mentioned Ilan Pappe classic will finally be published by Westend-Verlag. This fact-rich standard work of a Jewish-Israeli historian, the son of German Holocaust survivors, should be in every public library, university and school. “Anyone who wants to understand the core conflict in the Middle East better,” writes Marcel Pott in his review on Deutschlandfunk, “should read the book of Ilan Pappé written with much passion.” (1) (2)

The portrayals in Paperback’s book are so insistent that they stagger in the face of these crimes and guilt – until now unpunished. Ben Gurion’s entries in his diary on ethnic cleansing without significant resistance, on the approval of the expropriation of all Palestinian property previously seized, this callousness is disturbing, such as the description of “Action Dani,” the attacks and destruction of the city the mosques “Lydda and Rammla, the occupation and massacres in the mosques and the subsequent murders and looting. Anyone who has read this book will no longer so unconditionally recognize the right of existence of this “Jewish state” and will no longer be impressed by the lies and myths surrounding the foundation of this state. That is why it is so important that this monument to the facts, the “ethnic cleansing of Palestine”, is widely used. The countless descriptions and sculptural facts are difficult to tolerate, but to know them is so important.

The Zionists fear nothing more than the truth!

No wonder that Ilan Pappe was forced to leave Israel to build a new life and teaching in Britain. After all, a historian like Ilan Pappe has become a threat to the Zionists and their worldwide lobby with this historical-scientific work, a documentation of shame. Let us never forget: nothing is more fearful of the Zionists than the truth!

Meanwhile, this mentality of cover-up and attacks on freedom of expression also covers Germany. I still remember too well when the city of Munich prevented the appearance of Ilan Pappe in 2009, which I have reported in my commentary “The slime trail of subservience to Israel runs through all parties”. (3) (4)

When, on March 10, 1948, in the Red House in Tel Aviv, “veteran Zionist leaders and young Jewish officers” jointly agreed Plan D (Dalet) on the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, the fate of the Palestinians was sealed. That same evening, military orders were issued for the systematic expulsion of Palestinians from large parts of Palestine. To this day, this goal of Judaization is being pursued until the Final Solution. From the beginning it was the ideological-Zionist aspiration to have an exclusively Jewish population in Palestine. This final goal is getting closer and closer to this state. Just think of the newly passed National States Act; this new constitutional law declares the “Jewish state” as the “nation state of the Jewish people”, in which the “right to national self-determination” is reserved exclusively for the Jewish people “. Thus, this state has finally adopted from any democratic community and fully withdrawn to the Jewish Zionist apartheid. (5)

Political leaders of the “Jewish state” increasingly ruthless

All these points are no real news for us as politically interested, who have dealt with this topic for decades. We know about the ever new ideas of political leaders and Hasbara thinkers of this state. These have always been confident that, given the failure of the world community during the Holocaust, their guilty conscience, their remorse and reparation, they have become increasingly ruthless.

When the Nakba, this day of catastrophe, celebrates its seventeenth birthday on May 15, then you will hardly hear and read anything about these true backgrounds in politics and the media, since the “special” relationship to the “Jewish State “no cracks. But that is exactly the policy that is no longer needed today and urgently needs change. The German attitude to Israel needs an urgent correction. Just as there is no Jewish and democratic state that excludes its non-Jewish citizens from about 20 percent in the state. Not to mention the illegal occupation, colonization and expulsion, which are mildly criticized but not punished by the international community. As long as the consequences do not come, there will be no peace solution. Meanwhile, and as the last elections have shown, peace has become impossible because Israel wants everything but peace! Why? After all, they know a hypocritical, silent world community behind them and a US President Trump, who has announced to announce the ultimate “peace plan” of his Zionist son-in-law Kushner on the memorable Nakba day in May. Well-informed circles have already said that the Netanyahu regime can be satisfied. The main thing, the Jews are satisfied, as far as the Palestinians go, is a minor matter. (6) to announce the ultimate “peace plan” of his Zionist son-in-law Kushner on the memorable Nakba day in May. Well-informed circles have already said that the Netanyahu regime can be satisfied. The main thing, the Jews are satisfied, as far as the Palestinians go, is a minor matter. (6) to announce the ultimate “peace plan” of his Zionist son-in-law Kushner on the memorable Nakba day in May. Well-informed circles have already said that the Netanyahu regime can be satisfied. The main thing, the Jews are satisfied, as far as the Palestinians go, is a minor matter. (6)

“Purity” of Zionist weapons: a murderous irony

If the Holocaust is rightly described as one of the greatest crimes of humanity, then one can not allow denying the crimes in Palestine. While the Holocaust denial is punishable, the Nakba denial is supported by the state. Eventually, the “Jewish state” became the perpetrator and the myth of the “most moral” of all “defense armies”, as well as the Zionist slogan of the “purity” of weapons has long become a murderous irony. So I am ashamed when I see how Holocaust survivors and their descendants deny the lessons of the past and justify today’s injustice with the then. Nothing justifies the illegal occupation of Palestine and the Nakba as the beginning of the targeted expulsion and degradation of the Palestinian people. There is also no Jewish monopoly and no sole claim to suffering and sympathy. Have not the Jewish citizens in Israel and the Diaspora, who actively or passively supported these crimes, rightly forfeited all sympathy? Are not the parallels between the “Jewish state” and fascism piling up? More and more unscrupulously, the “dehumanization” and Judaisierung Palestine is operated, which should worry us all and to rethink. every sympathy rightly missed? Are not the parallels between the “Jewish state” and fascism piling up? More and more unscrupulously, the “dehumanization” and Judaisierung Palestine is operated, which should worry us all and to rethink. every sympathy rightly missed? Are not the parallels between the “Jewish state” and fascism piling up? More and more unscrupulously, the “dehumanization” and Judaisierung Palestine is operated, which should worry us all and to rethink.

Right-Wing of Israeli Society – Memories of the “Millennium”

The last elections show the ever-increasing fascist-Judaistic shift to the right of Israeli society. More and more, the whole situation is reminiscent of the “Thousand Year Reich”, which, unlike the “Zionist Empire”, which has been raging for 71 years, lasted only 12 years. It is quite clear that the “Jewish State always tries to use the phrase of recognition of Israel’s” right to exist “to recognize an existence that does not exist under international law, and that state built on injustice and expulsion arose from the founding of the state the basis of the state terror long ago forfeited. How long, then, do we want to defend the Zionist crimes that have been raised as a state raison d’être thanks to a damaging philosemitic German policy?

Is it not understandable if there is a new reservation today against Jews and the “Jewish State”? This reservation is falsely denounced as anti-Semitism, which is in fact legitimate criticism of the “Jewish state” and of its criminal expulsion, occupation and violating international law. By no means do I want to gloss over right-wing anti-Semitism, on the contrary, because of my upbringing and past, I’ve always been blind to the “right eye” like so many politicians.

Combat term “anti-Semitism” – distraction maneuver of the Israel Lobby

Is not it the same tendencies that we are experiencing today in the new Islam hatred, the marginalization of Muslims? Everything has happened, you just have to exchange the word Jew. It is particularly reprehensible when this anti-Semitism has shifted to Muslims, since now anti-Semitism serves only as a fighting concept and distraction maneuver of the Israel lobby to cover up crimes of the “Jewish state”. That, too, is one reason why the non-violent BDS movement is being fought so hard because it puts its finger on this wound. Is not Jewish fear of anti-Semitism today an expression of collective Jewish guilt? Without recognition of guilt and remorse, recognition of responsibility for evicting Palestinians and occupying their land, and without the Palestinians’ right of return to their native Palestine and the end of the occupation, peace is impossible. When will the Jewish Nibelung faithfulness to the “Jewish state” finally stop and a rethinking take place that is so urgently needed?

As long as three – two Jewish and one Palestinian – BDS activists, known as # humboldt3, stand trial in Germany just because they peacefully opposed Israeli apartheid and for equality, justice, freedom and dignity of the Palestinians, so long is Germany far from real democracy. It should be our moral duty to protest Israeli crimes against humanity and to support these young courageous activists.

Transnational solidarity is our duty – fight for equality and justice

The following statement in court touched me very much: “Our actions at Humboldt University should be honored because it is the moral duty of every humanist to defend himself against criminals, especially those who are involved in crimes against humanity. As human rights activists, this is our common duty – not only in Israel, but also in Europe, and especially in Germany, where we live. We, the Palestinians and Jews who have escaped apartheid in Israel, are here in Germany to fulfill our civic and moral duty to fight for transnational solidarity, equality and justice. “

They came to Germany as citizens of the world in the hope that they would no longer suffer from the imprisonment of Israeli apartheid. But they have discovered that Israeli apartheid is spreading to Germany. Do we really want to let that happen? Thousands of Muslims, Palestinians and Jewish activists should not feel safe in Germany when they speak up and demand “freedom for Palestine” or fight peacefully for their legal right of return to their occupied Palestinian homeland? Is not it our special duty to stand up for and support these citizens and their rights? It is more than significant that no German newspaper reported on this trial. (7)

The eternal shame of the Jewish Zionist crimes screams for remorse and atonement!

COMPLICITY IS GUILT

How long can the oh-so-moral community still look the other way and plead further in Palestine, ignoring the Israeli conquest and 1981 annexation of the Syrian Golan, which was never internationally recognized?

He who looks away is guilty

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

 

March 24, 1999, was the day Nato forces began to bomb the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. It was the first war outside of an “alliance” and without explicit UN approval, with the participation of Germany with the first combat mission of German troops after the end of the Second World War, a turning point in German foreign policy.

Energetic support War support of a red-green government

This brutal war with the active support of the then Red-Green government cost more than 15,000 lives, including more than 500 civilians. However, the supposedly “accidental” bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, which cost the lives of three Chinese journalists, was deliberate, according to the British Observer.

 

NATO war not covered by UN mandate

 

This UN-mandated NATO-led US-led NATO war was a violation of the UN Charter. It was a breach of international law against Article 2 (4) of the UN Charter, which stated that “All members shall refrain from any threat or application in their international relations directed against the territorial integrity or political independence of a State or otherwise incompatible with the purposes of the United Nations of violence “. After all, it was well known that a UN decision against resistance by the Russians and the Chinese would not have been possible.

 

SPD and green politicians campaigned for a bombing without a mandate

 

Even then, the SPD War Minister Scharping hung far out the window, justifying the war with “averting a humanitarian catastrophe”. While Russia rightly protested and criticized the NATO dictates of strength and although this war was also highly controversial within the NATO states, it was just German politicians, especially a red-green federal government, which had once made peace movement and 68ers, who were now campaigning for a bombing without a mandate.

 

German assault past

 

All these references to the German aggressive war past were worth the red-green coalition nothing more. They tried to justify the attack by any means, even with reference to never-proven Serbian war plans, which today remind us very much of the forged “evidence” of the United States at the beginning of the Iraq war.

 

Collateral damage linked to the Holocaust

 

It was quite disgusting, however, when the civilian victims of NATO by Nato US spokesman Shea were called “collateral damage” and the indignation and the calls for ceasefire were so large that the green Foreign Minister Joseph Fischer was forced to see all the guns of his acting and with an unforgotten, more than outrageous comparison made a connection to the Holocaust and said: “I stand on two principles, never again war, never again Auschwitz, never again genocide, never again fascism. Both belong together with me. “

To instrumentalize Auschwitz, even to use it as a metaphor for the extermination of an ethnic group, was a tasteless taboo that remains unforgotten today and opened free-rider locks.

And that leads me to the SPD successor in the office of Foreign Minister, who went into politics because of Auschwitz and 20 years after the beginning of the international law-violent NATO war, this and the German participation is right.

As Maas said about dpa, he still believes that German participation has been “an outflow of responsible action. We have seen that there have been massive violations of human rights, “said Foreign Minister Maas, who was completely unimpressed by the breach of international law.

 

The hypocritical “Auschwitz Minister”

 

This in turn inevitably leads me to Gaza and Palestine. After all, if you go to war with blatant lies, it is no wonder that the “Auschwitz Minister” can close his eyes when human rights and international law are violated and trampled under Zionist occupation regimes in illegally occupied Palestine and Gaza the German stirrup holder only possible by looking away! Such a hypocritical foreign minister can also look in the mirror without being ashamed of the land.

Missiles at the “right” time

After the rocket fire from Gaza, which once again came at exactly the right time, destroyed a residential building in the Greater Tel Aviv area and injured seven people, including two children, this was again a desperate wake-up call from the Gaza Strip, do not forget us in the concentration camp. Who benefits from this rocket fire? Of course, the Prime Minister Netanyahu, who is always under new corruption charges in the election campaign. He has already announced that he will shorten his US visit to Trump and renounce his propaganda speech to the most powerful US-Israel lobby organization AIPAC. He stated that Israel would not tolerate a “vicious attack” on the State of Israel on “its territory.” He would react vigorously and do everything necessary for the safety of his citizens. Friend Trump hurriedly assured “Israel has the right to self-defense.” The German government also strongly condemned the attack. Has this Merkel government ever condemned an attack or the genocide in Gaza? On the one hand, every Zionist crime was justified by reference to the “right to self-defense” of this “Christian-Zionist coalition”!

 

The supreme warlord and his belligerent people

 

For Netanyahu, who also holds the office of Minister of War, the security situation is the central issue in the election campaign. Only then can he present himself as the “highest general” in front of his belligerent people.So what fits in with the scheme more than “militant Islamist Hamas” missiles that always arrive at the right time, as ordered. So who else is talking about the report of the UN Human Rights Council, which accuses the “Jewish State” of committing crimes against humanity on the border with Gaza, with almost 200 murdered alone 20018 and several thousands injured, by the “Jewish Defense Army”.

 

The march of the return

 

Before the 30th of March, the first anniversary of the march of return marches, large-scale demonstrations are again announced. These protesters call for an end to the blockade of the Gaza Strip, which has been ongoing since 2006, which the “Jewish State” and Egypt arbitrarily exercise and justify with “security interests”. However, there is no justification for human rights crimes and illegal occupation.

 

Those responsible for war crimes before the International Court of Justice

 

So who will finally atone for the war crimes and bring to justice those responsible before the International Court of Justice in The Hague, which, according to the commission of the UN Human Rights Council, murdered 189 Palestinians from the end of March to the end of December 2018, shooting more than 6,000 of them 122 Palestinian limbs had to be amputated. This war crimes massacre, which targeted civilians who were not involved in combat operations and therefore did not represent an immediate danger, must finally be punished by the international community, with all the consequences.

 

So, it is time for the EU to no longer class Hamas as a terrorist organization, but as a resistance organization in the fight for freedom against illegal occupation. However, reality shows that Muslims / Palestinians are always considered “terrorists”, while Jews / Zionists are always considered “peace-loving victims.” This thinking has also contributed massively to worldwide hatred of Islam and promoted intolerance against Muslims. Muslims are the Jews of today and deserve our all protection and solidarity when attacked.

 

Trump sealed the covenant with the “Chosen Zionists”

 

It is not Gaza-ruling Hamas guilty of the misery of this sealed-off concentration camp, but it is the Zionist occupation regime. As long as that is not finally recognized, there can never be a just solution that, as it seems, is no longer on the “Christian-Jewish” agenda for Palestine. Trump and his Golan Tweet, sealed after the Jerusalem Maneuver, the Covenant linking the “Chosen Zionists” to the Christian Zionist Evangelicals.Netanyahu and Trump have never been better off than they are now, because they are so similar in their “understanding of democracy and how to deal with the media”.

 

Furnished in war missions

 

Again and again, it is pointed out that the “positive” consequence after the Kosovo war was to give more weight to human rights and international law and that politicians can no longer hide behind sovereignty when they commit their atrocities. What a lie! Nothing has changed, even though we are being led to believe that today’s UN Security Council is under international legal obligation to protect the population from their regimes.So what does the sad reality look like, 20 years after the NATO-Kosovo war in violation of international law and 5 years after the Gaza genocide and the 71-year ethnic cleansing of Palestine? Things have gotten worse around the world and the hypocritical community of states has meanwhile established itself between war missions, the sale of weapons and the exploitation of resources.

There is a duty for humanitarian interventions, but certainly not as NATO spent it, as a “moral duty” with the help of bombs, to which the West feels committed.

 

The double standard when it comes to the “Jewish state”

 

Where is the moral, when it comes to the “Jewish state” and its illegal international occupier regime? Again and again one celebrates a double standard, which must finally be stopped. The Holocaust victims and their descendants do not have the right to take everything out just because the international community allowed the Holocaust and intervened far too late. A guilty conscience does not lead to good politics. Why must the Palestinians atone for the Holocaust and not be defended like the people of the Balkans? Because they are not important in the “Cold War” in the conflict between East and West?

The forgotten victims of Western politics

 

Why have neither AA Fischer nor AA Maas ever applied the moral standards they set forth in the Kosovo war? Again and again I come to Auschwitz, why did they abuse this term without necessity, but not for Palestine under the Israeli knout? Especially in Palestine this metaphor has its justification. But not for the former victims, but for today. Just think of the oppressed and occupied Palestinians / Gaza, who are increasingly becoming abused victims and oblivious in Western politics. Finally, more and more of what’s really going on is crystallized: about the Christian-Jewish cultural struggle, against Muslims and Islam.

 

A “God given miracle”

 

When US President Trump once again overruled all rules of international law and recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Syrian Golan they occupied, the Jewish Israelis cheered and spoke of a “God-given miracle.” Finally Trump, as a representative of God, would have recognized the solidarity of the “Jewish people” with this part of the country.

It was another campaigning gift to friend Netanyahu after the Jerusalem recognition and the US move of the embassy to the “eternally undivided capital” of the “Jewish state”.

Trump’s election gifts

 

Netanyahu, sinking deeper and deeper into his corruption mess with new accusations, can now bask in Trump’s electoral gifts, which also have an important domestic policy goal for Trump, namely to drive a wedge into the Democratic Party and to kill two birds with one stone. (1) The Trump’s Russian affair takes a back seat and Netanyahu is currently called only in connection with the Golan and Geza, all the best conditions for the 9th of April, the election day in the “Jewish state”. After a victory in the election, the little world of Bibi and Sara would be fine again and they can bask in their supposed glory if it were not for the many dirty linen that their subjects apparently like to literally sweep under their bed.

The phrase of the “peace process”

 

Thanks to Trump, Netanyahu seems to be getting closer and closer to his goal of not having to settle for the phrase “peace process” anymore, let alone making concessions on the settlement issue. However, he is compliant with a majority of his competitors in the election campaign, Blue and White, Shas Party, Yadahut Ha Torah, Kulanu, the New Right, Union of Right Parties, and Israel Beitenu, who outbid each other in their right-wing ideas.

 

Judaization and claim to Greater Israel

 

They all do not want settlement demolition and division of Jerusalem. What does that show us? The “peace” offered by these politicians only reveals their unwillingness to fight, pursuing only one goal: the Judaization and the claim to a Greater Israel, but without its aborigines. How long have Israeli politicians dreamed of the annexation of the West Bank and an euphemistically called “transfer” expulsion of the Palestinians living there into Arab states? After all, the US government has already deleted the term “occupied” for the West Bank and the Gaza Strip in an official report by the Foreign Ministry – contrary to international law. For the Palestinians, the worst fears come true, since they must fear that Trump will fulfill these Zionist wishes for power. What will Trump make possible in the future?Nothing is impossible with this dealer, who likes to create quick Twitter-hooks instead of having to negotiate long enough to overburden him and even keep him from playing golf.

 

No German “raison d’etat” for the “Jewish state”

 

So how long can the oh-so-moral community still look the other way and plead further in Palestine, ignoring the Israeli conquest and 1981 annexation of the Syrian Golan, which was never internationally recognized? Let’s see if the German Federal Government, which regards the Syrian Golan Heights as “occupied territories” entirely in accordance with UN Resolution 497, which was unanimously adopted by the UN in 1981, does not fall over under Maas and its master in white House and Tel Aviv not wrong. If they were serious about international law, they would certainly be obliged to suspend the German “reason of the state” for the “Jewish state”. In my opinion, a “state reason” for a state, who so boldly ignores international law and human rights, incompatible with the German Constitution. So how long do we still want to look the other way and be guilty when it comes to the Zionist occupation crimes in Palestine?

ISRAELI JOURNALISTS MUST WRITE OR SAY WHAT THEY ARE TOLD

This is seen as the latest evidence of Israel’s attempts to silence anyone who criticises its army or politicians.

Israel journalist facing trial for calling soldiers who beat Palestinians ‘animals’

An Israeli journalist who called Israeli army soldiers “animals” for beating a Palestinian father and son in custody is to face trial.

Oshrat Kotler, a journalist with Israel’s Channel 13, is to face trial on charges of incitement, incrimination of suspects, failure to grant a right of reply and more after she called several soldiers accused of beating two Palestinians in custody “human animals”, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Speaking on the channel’s news programme in February, Kotler said:

When you send your children to the [Israeli] army, they are kids. You send them to the [occupied Palestinian] territories, and they come back as human animals. This is the result of the occupation.

Her comments allegedly prompted complaints from thousands of viewers, as well as complaints to Israel’s Press Council, an independent body established to safeguard press freedoms and outline journalism ethics. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also responded to Kotler’s comments, saying her words “deserve every condemnation” and that he is “proud of the [Israeli army] soldiers and loves them very much.”

She now faces trial and will appear at a court hearing, though it is unclear when she will be summoned.

The Israeli soldiers to whom Kotler referred were last week convicted of aggravated assault and aggravated battery for beating a 50-year-old Palestinian and his 15-year-old son who were detained in custody. The soldiers were suspected of beating the father and son as revenge for a December attack on members of their battalion, since both sets of soldiers belong to the same unit – the ultra-Orthodox Netzah Yehuda Battalion of the Kfir Brigade, which is stationed in northern West Bank city of Jenin.

Details of the brutal beating emerged during February’s court proceedings, with the 15-year-old boy telling the court: “I was lying on my back, with hands cuffed behind my back and a blindfold over my eyes. I was kicked by four soldiers – who used their hands, feet and the barrels of their M16 rifles – in the face, chest, abdomen, legs, and testicles […] I couldn’t open my left eye and my mouth was filled with blood.”

Despite the severity of the crimes and the Netzah Yehuda battalion’s history of anti-Palestinian violence, the soldiers reached a plea bargain and will serve only 190 days in prison. They were sentenced yesterday by an Israeli military court.

The bid to take Kotler to court will be seen as the latest evidence of Israel’s attempts to silence anyone who criticises its army or politicians. Journalists in particular have come under attack, with Netanyahu slamming the “left-wing media” for conspiring against him and the country’s interests ahead of the upcoming election on 9 April.

Netanyahu drew criticism in January when a billboard appeared outside Tel Aviv showing a number of prominent journalists who have been critical of his premiership with the words “they will not decide”. The four journalists had been closely covering the corruption scandal in which Netanyahu has long been embroiled, and it was thought his Likud party was behind the campaign to discredit them. Netanyahu’s rivals lambasted the move, with head of the Yesh Atid party and Blue and White (Kahol Lavan) co-leader Yair Lapid labelling the move incitement.

Netanyahu has also tried to side-step the mainstream media by creating his own TV channel, dubbed Likud TV. Launching the channel on his official Facebook page with the slogan “we’re throwing the ‘fake’ out of the news,” Netanyahu said that “whoever the media praises is bad for Likud and usually whoever it crucifies is good for Likud”.

Commentators were quick to point out the similarity between Netanyahu’s campaign and that of US President Donald Trump, noting that Likud TV “seems to follow the model of [Trump’s] Real News Update” ahead of the US elections due to be held in 2020. Trump has championed the “fake news” narrative, labelling journalists the “enemy of the people” and taking aim at some of America’s biggest news outlets.

IT’S TIME TO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT CRITICISM OF ISRAEL

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution Thursday condemning anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim discrimination, white supremacy and other forms of hate, following a week of debate among congressional Democrats. The controversy began after some lawmakers accused Democratic Congressmember Ilhan Omar of invoking anti-Semitic tropes while questioning U.S. foreign policy on Israel. The House leadership initially drafted a resolution condemning anti-Semitism in what was seen as a direct rebuke of Omar. But many progressive Democrats said Omar, one of the first two Muslim Congresswoman in U.S. history, was unfairly being singled out. The split within the Democratic Party forced the leadership to withdraw its initial resolution and then present a much broader one. Congressmember Ilhan Omar voted for and praised the new resolution in a joint statement with fellow Muslim lawmakers Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and André Carson of Indiana. We speak with Gideon Levy, Haaretz columnist and member of the newspaper’s editorial board. His latest piece is headlined “Keep It Up, Ilhan Omar.”

THE UNIVERSAL THREAT OF ZIONISM

If Zionist fascists today join forces with Europeans to fight Islam and Muslims under the guise of fighting terror, then we should stand up together and defend ourselves against this kind of racism to save the last of democracy.

Zionism threatens all of us

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

 

When the “Jewish State” ambassador, Jeremy Issacharoff, launches, we know what to expect: fake news and hasbara (propaganda). But what he now said in the “Jumping Picture” was not to be beaten. (1) No, certainly not Hezbollah threatens Europe, but it is undoubtedly its representative Zionist state terror regime. And certainly not threatened by him hallucinated “anti-Semites from Gaza to Tehran” – the nuclear power (!) – Israel with death, but it is still his state, which is constantly threatening, this supports with arbitrary bombing, air surveillance and See, which does not shy away from targeted killings or extrajudicial executions. While Israel is trying to destabilize Lebanon,

 

German submission to Zionist state terrorists

 

Issacharoff attacks not only the UNO for innumerable, absolutely legitimate resolutions, but also criticizes Federal President Steinmeier because of his congratulatory telegram to Iran for the 40th national holiday. Even Josef Schuster, the German governor of the “Jewish State”, had already given his mustard via this jumble in this Cause.

 

It is more than presumptuous that a German President, who is so closely connected with the “Jewish friends”, has to be reprimanded by representatives of an international law-violating regime like Israel, and certainly he does not have to justify himself for usual diplomatic practices!

 

Where the German political submission has led, we experience in this case particularly blatantly. The more German politicians covet the Zionist state terrorists, the more demands are made.

 

Distraction from daily peoples and human rights crimes – hell on earth

 

No, Hezbollah and Hamas are not our enemies. They are resistance organizations, formed from the founding of the “Jewish state” and the illegal occupation of Palestine. By constantly demonizing these important organizations, Israel is only trying to divert attention from its daily genocide and human rights crimes. Who led the war against Lebanon, regardless of the civilian population, with dirty weapons that today still painfully remind the people of Lebanon of the war and the atrocities of the “butcher” Ariel Sharon?

 

Or take Gaza, where the Jewish “defensive army” committed genocide, until today, and week after week the Palestinians trying to break out of this concentration camp are insidiously murdered by snipers. With combat helicopters responding to balloons, and constant drones monitoring the trapped trying to wear down everything that happens under the eyes of the so-called Western “community of values” which the Palestinian people and the illegal occupation of Palestine except hypocritical pronouncements unmoved in the prepared them by the Israelis hell to languish on earth.The Netanyahu regime has achieved virtually no international criticism of the occupation. (2)

 

No, not Hezbollah, Hamas or Iran are terrorists, but in the truest sense of the word are the state terrorists of the “Jewish state” and its regime. They can not be our allies in the terror fight. Instead, we should finally see who brings us this terror. Nothing leaves the “Jewish state” untrammeled to drive a wedge between the EU states.

 

The “Jewish state”: Zionist-fascist schizomycete of the region

 

If the ambassador speaks of how Israel has recently discovered six “terror tunnels” that have led from South Lebanon to Israel, then that is more than implausible. After all, Netanyahu had known this fact for a long time, but it only became useful to him in his election campaign. I have seen with my own eyes the desolate situation of the Palestinian refugees in the camps in Lebanon, who must live there unworthily, 71 years after the Nakba, the catastrophe. In recent years, due to the Syria war, the situation of the refugees has worsened further, which plays into the hands of the “Jewish state”. Just as the Netanyahu regime is diligently involved in the Syrian war, supporting terrorists and the more than dodgy “white helmets” to weaken the Assad government, affirming the eternal garrison of the Golan Heights.

 

Although Israel repeatedly emphasizes defending the security of its people, it very deliberately weakens the security of its citizens with this type of policy. How sure could the “Jewish state” live if it were not for the occupation and Zionist fascist fission fungus of the region, because without keeping its population in fear and with the repeated pretense, surrounded by enemies in the whole world to be alone and alone. Only then can they govern by putting the population in constant fear of imaginary enemies and attacks. At the same time, the Netanyahu regime does not shy away from subordinating Iran to a planned Holocaust against the “Jewish state”.This instrumentalization of the Holocaust is a particularly perfidious kind of hasbala “warfare”,

 

So it does not make much difference which regime is coming to power in the “Jewish state” because they all have one purpose only: to achieve the fight against Palestinians / Muslims and the final solution of the Judaization of Palestine, by all means. This dirty election campaign, which Netanyahu has completely tailored to himself, with provocations from Haram al-Sharif to the “eternal capital” of Jerusalem, with the strong help of the Trump government. Netanyahu, who is threatened with corruption charges and is so up to his neck, tries to prevent his resignation by attacking the judiciary and the media. With this aggressive, racist policy, which does not shy away from cooperation with fascists, he actually knows a large part of his Jewish followers behind him. There can be no talk of an opposition, after all, the party alliance Blau-Weiss, under the former Chief of Staff Gantz and companions of Netanyahu, as well as a former television presenter and finance minister Lapid, offers neither an alternative nor a useful program.It’s all state terrorists who seek to power, with blood on their hands. There is nothing left for the Palestinians except ethnic cleansing and advancing Judaization at the expense of their last rights. Everything is reminiscent of friend Trump and his choice, as well as various far-right European leaders.It’s all state terrorists who seek to power, with blood on their hands. There is nothing left for the Palestinians except ethnic cleansing and advancing Judaization at the expense of their last rights. Everything is reminiscent of friend Trump and his choice, as well as various far-right European leaders.It’s all state terrorists who seek to power, with blood on their hands. There is nothing left for the Palestinians except ethnic cleansing and advancing Judaization at the expense of their last rights. Everything is reminiscent of friend Trump and his choice, as well as various far-right European leaders.

 

Germany coldly denies human rights under the boot of lobbyists

 

If the Israeli ambassador criticizes Germany for daring to abstain or vote against Israel in a very few resolutions, it sounds like a threat that has already fallen on fertile ground thanks to the FDP, which in turn is putting pressure on the federal government and wants to prevent Israeli-critical resolutions. If this is your program for upcoming elections, then good night you liberals! What remains is a jumble of miserable self-promoters, voluntarily under the boot of lobbyists who are icy refusing to enforce international law and human rights when it comes to the “Jewish state”.Perhaps this kind of cowardly appeasement policy is a late reappraisal of the Nazi past of the Mende period? Meanwhile, the entire German party landscape has lost all scruples, when it comes to the “Jewish state” and its unconditional support. This is a dangerous development of the “new anti-Semitism” that is omnipresent in philosemitic effusions, and if this continues, criminalizing and making impossible any criticism of Israel, and thus voluntarily discarding the freedom of expression guaranteed by the Basic Law.

 

To the Ambassador, who sees in the interview the time for congratulations to people in Iran, when the “ayatollahs and terror regime” will come to an end, I answer for my part, with his words:

 

“The time will come for congratulations to the people of Palestine when the Zionist-fascist regime of state terror, which they spread internally and externally, comes to an end.”

 

Germany is openly supporting the transatlantic war policy of NATO

 

It will not succeed in destroying the BDS movement and silencing award ceremonies to Jewish human rights activists and critics of the “Jewish state” policy, even though the scroungingly-scientifically-crafted Hasbara propaganda tries and supports this with millions of dollars.

 

If Zionist fascists today join forces with Europeans to fight Islam and Muslims under the guise of fighting terror, then we should stand up together and defend ourselves against this kind of racism to save the last of democracy.

 

If the coming elections in the “Jewish State” bring politicians to the government, who are actually all members of the International Court of Justice in The Hague, then Germany is guaranteed, as always, to support them unconditionally. The credibility and integrity of such nefarious policy expires visibly – if Germany and its armaments industry now unscrupulous arms to Saudi Arabia, Yemen and the “Jewish State” sell – if Bundeswehr soldiers worldwide participate in military conflicts and that is also rated positively, the Sanctions against Russia and Iran, and that after the attempted and failed US overthrow attempt in Venezuela, which backfired, was immediately recognized by order of the US a Venezuelan puppet as president, which culminated in that the German ambassador Daniel Kiener provided the self-styled “interim president” Guiado as Bodygard at the “lovely” reception on his return to the airport in Caracas. Thus, German foreign policy has openly supported the transatlantic war policy of NATO.Since the former SPD Foreign Minister Gabriel, who will soon be the successor to Friedrich Merz, the Atlantic Bridge and already “moved” looking forward to the post, doubly pleased, with so much grafting to the “US Friends” (3) Thus, German foreign policy has openly supported the transatlantic war policy of NATO. Since the former SPD Foreign Minister Gabriel, who will soon be the successor to Friedrich Merz, the Atlantic Bridge and already “moved” looking forward to the post, doubly pleased, with so much grafting to the “US Friends” (3) Thus, German foreign policy has openly supported the transatlantic war policy of NATO. Since the former SPD Foreign Minister Gabriel, who will soon be the successor to Friedrich Merz, the Atlantic Bridge and already “moved” looking forward to the post, doubly pleased, with so much grafting to the “US Friends” (3)

THERE IS NO PALESTINE UNTIL YOU ACTUALLY VISIT IT

Upon arrival …

Three friends from Colombia visited me this week. Upon their arrival at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv they were completely body searched. It seems that it is assumed by many that all Colombians are smuggling drugs into whatever country they are visiting.

After about a two hour search and interrogation (and not finding any non existent drugs) they were finally allowed to leave the airport….

 

Some Background on the three

One of them spent a few years here earlier. The other two were visiting for the first time. They wanted to see as much of Israel as possible in their short (1 week) visit. They also wanted to visit Bethlehem and Nazareth. Being Christians, it seemed natural to visit the birthplace and home of their Lord.

This apparently is one big NO NO as far as the Israeli Authorities are concerned.

Leaving for home …

Not as easy as you might think! When they presented their passports to the Airport Security people they were immediately taken out of line and sent to what is commonly called ‘the bad room’.

The following questions and answers …

Security …. Do you have any Palestinian friends?

Answer … We have Palestinian friends and Jewish friends.

Big Brother is following you on your visit

Security …. We saw on your FaceBook Page and in other places (Click on link) photos of you visiting Palestine, is this a fact?

Answer … Yes it is a fact. We went to visit the Church of Nativity where Jesus was born. We also visited Nazareth where He spent most of His short life.

Security … Did any of your Palestinian friends give you gifts or put anything in your baggage?

Answer … No

At this point they were all forced to strip and full body scans were performed. Everything in their baggage was removed and checked carefully. Nothing suspicious was found as there wasn’t anything to find.

The procedure, except for the body scan, was repeated by other personnel two more times taking three hours in total.

One of the three had a laptop with him. Security confiscated it as well as his Smartphone. They told him it would be sent to his home in Colombia within a few days.

They were finally allowed to leave the room and head towards the gate to catch their plane (which they almost missed).

So why all the fuss?

So, suddenly there IS a Palestine. Go figure!

Bottom line is … if you visit Israel with the intention of visiting Palestine as well, DO NOT POST ANYTHING ON ANY SOCIAL MEDIA SITE UNTIL YOU LEAVE THE COUNTRY.

Hassles such as the above can be prevented.
