Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly has infuriated the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, Press TV reports. ● Addressing the General Assembly on Monday, Netanyahu compared Israel's battle against Palestinian resistance movement Hamas to that of the US-led campaign against the ISIL militants in Iraq and Syria. The Israeli prime minister is considered by Palestinians a war criminal for the atrocities that were perpetrated by his forces during the 50-day war on Gaza, which ended a little over a month ago, and the eight-day war in 2012. [...] The al-Mezan Center For Human Rights, a non-governmental organization based in the Jabalia Palestinian refugee camp in the Gaza Strip, says the international community is in cahoots with Tel Aviv by allowing Netanyahu to deliver a speech at the UN. “Netanyahu’s forces carried out systematic killing of Gazan children and women and wanton destruction of civilian infrastructure. Netanyahu addressing world leaders only asserts the complicity of the international community in Israeli war crimes against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip,” Samir Zaqqout of the rights group said. Hamas also slammed the Israeli premier’s speech, calling it a speech of hatred and incitement.
US President Barack Obama is using ISIL as a pretext to topple the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a political commentator says. ● “When that may happen, we don’t know, but it seems inevitable,” Veterans Today columnist Shamus Cooke said in a phone interview with Press TV on Friday. He added that Obama has chosen to campaign against the ISIL terrorist group with the Persian Gulf monarchies that “are attempting to topple” the Syrian government. “
Qatar, for example, recently announced that Bashar Assad is still the main problem, not ISIL. So, the agenda is still also to attack the Syrian government,” the analyst said.

The General Conference of the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) rejected a resolution tabled by 18 Arab nations, to submit Israel’s nuclear program to inspections and for Israel to accede to the non-proliferation treaty. A virtually identical resolution was adopted in 2009, but the IAEA failed to address Israel’s non-compliance. The resolution was rejected by 58 nay votes, 45 votes in favor of the resolution and 27 abstentions. Independent analysts estimate that Israel has a stockpile of 200 – 400 nuclear warheads, ranging from megaton sized warheads to suitcase and pineapple sized devices. Israel does not officially recognized that it has a nuclear weapons program at all. The weapons program does not only raise regional and international security concerns and concerns about proliferation, but concerns about serious human rights abuses against Palestinian prisoners in Israeli detention.
Michel Chossudovsky ■ The Criminalization of the United Nations || Under the auspices of the United Nations Security Council, with president Obama chairing the Council session, the United States has called upon the international community to adopt strong measures, at national and international levels, to curtail the recruitment of Islamic State fighters. What is not mentioned in the media reports is that the heads of State and heads of government who have endorsed America’s campaign against the Islamic State, advised by their respective secret services, are fully aware that US intelligence is the unspoken architect of the Islamic State, which is part of a vast network of US supported “jihadist” terrorist entities. Countries are either coerced into supporting the US sponsored resolution or they are complicit in the US terror agenda.

NBC News reports the attack includes drones and is expecting to hit up to 20 targets. FOX is reporting Qatar is among the arab nation coalition (along with UAE, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Bahrain), according to Lt. Col. Oliver North, which is rather surprising given their rather well-known support for Al-Nusra.

SANA ● Syria says Washington informed Syria’s permanent envoy to the U.N. before striking ISIS terrorist organization in raqqa. || Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said Tuesday that the American side informed Syria’s permanent envoy to the U.N. Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari that strikes will be launched against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria ISIS terrorist organization in the northern province of Raqqa. SANA reporter in Raqqa said that the U.S. launched airstrikes on ISIS terrorist group’s targets in Raqqa late on Monday.
Dozens of social justice activists managed to prevent a ship that is owned by the Israeli company ZIM from unloading its cargo last weekend at the port of Tampa Bay in Florida as part of a wider solidarity campaign to prevent Israeli ships from loading and unloading their cargo at American ports. According to Al-Quds newspaper, the Department of Expatriate Affairs at the Palestine Liberation Organisation said in a press statement issued on Sunday that protesters showing solidarity with Palestine were present, in spite of the bad weather and heavy rain, since the early morning hours after the ship approached the port and docked ahead of schedule during the night hours, preventing the port crews from unloading the Israeli ship.
Stephen Lendman ■ Occupied Palestine: Good News and Bad [06/25/10]
An Israeli drone has crashed in the southern Lebanese region of Marjayoun near the border with Israel, media reports say. The aircraft fell in the Saradah Valley, about 15 kilometers from the Blue Line, on Saturday. The Lebanese armed forces and peacekeepers with the UN Interim Force in Lebanon cordoned off the site of the crash. According to the preliminary investigation, a technical malfunction led to the plane’s fall, a security source said. Israel violates Lebanon’s airspace on an almost daily basis, claiming the flights serve surveillance purposes.
A leader of the foreign-backed Syrian opposition has visited injured militants being treated at a hospital in the Israeli town of Dafed. ● Kamal al-Labwani, who lives in exile in Turkey, said militants fighting President Bashar al-Assad will never forget what he called Tel Aviv's humanitarian support. Al-Labwani, of the so-called Syrian National Coalition (SNC), also emphasized that anti-government forces in Syria see Israel as a friend. Syrian anti-government leader is scheduled to meet Israeli authorities during his ongoing trip. Tel Aviv regime has openly voiced support for Syrian militants on many occasions.
Archeologists have unearthed hidden Nazi gas chambers at the site of the Sobibor Nazi concentration camp in eastern Poland. An estimated 250,000 people were killed at the camp. ● Nazi forces tried to erase all traces of the camp's existence. An asphalt road was laid over the top of the site after SS leader Heinrich Himmler ordered its destruction. The orders came following an uprising against the camp’s staffers on October 14, 1943. Some 12 SS officers were killed in the plot, which involved prisoners telling camp guards they had salvaged well-made or expensive items in order to lure them to a place where they could be slaughtered. In the subsequent chaos, some 300 of the 600 Jewish inmates broke free. However, many were shot while attempting to escape. By the end of WWII, there were approximately 50 survivors. The archaeologists explored the site beneath the road and found rows of bricks, four pieces deep. They have determined that this is where the walls of the gas chambers once stood.
Gilad Atzmon ■ Hot Off The Press: Were The Revisionists Correct All Along? || Israeli archaeologist Yoram Haimi reported today on Ynet (Hebrew) that his international team has now identified the location of a real Gas Chambers in Sobibor concentration camp. Haimi admitted that “Sobibor is the only place where you can witness an original Gas Chamber, the way it operated in reality.” If this is the case - if Sobibor is indeed the only place where an “original gas chamber” can be witnessed, then the Holocaust Revisionists who were subject to State terror and persecution, let alone endless harassment by the hands of Zionist and anti alike, were telling the truth all along. The Gas Chambers that have been exhibited to tourists were built after the war. This revelation is both embarrassing yet reassuring. Truth liberates us after all. The only question that is left open is whether Israeli archaeologist Haimi may get arrested once landing in Germany.
Now, what shitty little "country" in the Middle East thinks it would benefit from the destruction of Islam?
James Dorsey ■ As states, Saudi Arabia and Israel share few, if any common values, despite some cultural values that are common to Wahhabism, the austere form of Islam adopted by the kingdom, and ultra-orthodox Jews. But they increasingly have common interests. Both states perceive Iran, particularly an Iran that is a nuclear power, as an existential threat and share a determination to defeat the Muslim Brotherhood as well as Al Qaeda-inspired groups and defend as much of the political status quo in the region as possible against change that threatens to replace autocratic regimes with ones dominated by Islamist militants. A series of recent events indicate that those common interests have made Saudi Arabia, which based on its oil wealth, financial muscle and custody of Islam's two holiest cities, Mecca and Medina, projects itself as a the leader of the Arab world less sensitive about going public about relations with Israel in the absence of a settlement of the Palestinian problem. As a result, Israel, which has long accommodated a Saudi need for secrecy is also becoming more public about cooperation between the two states. "Everything is underground, nothing is public.
Israel Shahak ■ “Greater Israel”: The Zionist Plan for the Middle East
If the US fails to attack Islamic State (IS) militants in Iraq and Syria, the country could face the prospect of “many” terrorist attacks similar to September 11, a top-ranking Democrat says. It comes as the House debates arming Syrian rebels to fight IS. ● Speaking during a floor debate at the House of Representatives on Tuesday, Eliot Engel [Jewish](D-N.Y.) of the House Foreign Affairs Committee expressed his support for
President puppet Barack Obama’s plan to combat IS (previously known as ISIS/ISIL) and said that failure to authorize the plan would lead to devastating consequences for the US. “I understand that my colleagues are war weary. I’m war weary. I understand the American people are war weary,” Engel said, as quoted by The Hill. “But I think doing nothing would invite something very similar that happened to my city, New York City, on that fateful day of Sept. 11, 2001.” [The Jews did 9/11.] “If we you do nothing, ISIS (IS) will plot and plan and we you’ll have many more 9/11s in the United States, in Europe, in the Middle East,” he claimed threatened. [Israel and Saudi Arabia created IS.]
On 26 August a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas was agreed, bringing a fragile end to a war that killed 2150 Palestinians (mostly civilians) and 73 Israelis (mostly soldiers). Since then Hamas has not fired a single rocket, attacked an Israeli target, or done anything to break the terms of the ceasefire. Israel has done the following:
Professor Graeme MacQueen has written a must-read book on the anthrax attacks on America: The 2001 Anthrax Deception. Even those of us who have paid close attention to – and written broadly on – the 2001 anthrax attacks will learn stunning new information. For example, we learned the following eye-opening facts from the book:
◾ There was a set of 3 letters sent around the same time as the initial anthrax mailings, which attempted to frame the Russians for the anthrax attacks, and which warned of further attacks. These letters could not have been sent by Dr. Bruce Ivins (the scientist the FBI blamed for the attacks), nor could they have been “copycat” letters
◾ Less than 3 months before the anthrax attack, the government carried out a simulated exercise called “Dark Winter”, where: a lethal germ had been aerosolized then released; anonymous letters threatened anthrax attacks; Iraq and Al Qaeda are blamed for the attacks; and preparations are made for the drastic reduction of civil liberties in the United States, including martial Law [...]
◾ There is reason to suspect that the same people who carried out 9/11 also carried out the anthrax attacks
In 1923 Vladimir Jabotinsky, leading intellectual of the Zionist movement and father of the right wing of that movement, wrote:
“Zionist colonization must either stop, or else proceed regardless of the native population. Which means that it can proceed and develop only under the protection of a power that is independent of the native population – behind an The Iron Wall , which the native population cannot breach.”
First published in Russian under the title O Zheleznoi Stene in Rassvyet, 4 November 1923. From that day these words became the official and unspoken policy of the Zionist movement and later the state of Israel. Settlements were used from the beginning to create a Zionist foothold in Palestine. The Iron Wall documentary exposes this phenomenon and follows the timeline, size, population of the settlements, and its impact on the peace process. This film also touches on the latest project to make the settlements a permanent fact on the ground; the wall that Israel is building in the West Bank and its impact on the Palestinian people. Settlements and related infrastructures are impacting every aspect of life for all Palestinians from land confiscation, theft of natural resources, confiscation of the basic human rights, creation of an apartheid-like system, to the devastating impact in regards to the future of the region and the prospect of the peace process. Palestinians and Israelis began the peace process based on a very simple principle: land for peace. Settlements destroy that principle and create a land with no peace.
All Ashkenazi Jews Alive Today Descend From The 350 Jews Who Lived Approximately 800 Years Ago, Study Finds
A model based on the genetic sequencing of 128 Ashkenazi Jews has found that Ashkenazi Jews descend from the fusion of Europeans and Middle Eastern Jews in the medieval era approximately 600 to 800 years ago, Ha’aretz reported. ● The study – authored by a team of scientists headed by Columbia University's Shai Carmon and published today in the journal Nature Communications – also found that the approximately 10 million Ashkenazim alive today all descend from about 350 people who lived between 25 to 32 generations ago – sometime about 1200 to 1300 CE. Ashkenazim have a slightly higher rate of genetic diseases than other Europeans because of the recent population bottleneck. But the study also found Europeans experienced their own bottleneck 20,400 to 22,100 years ago – about the time the last Ice Age was at its worst.
The US State Department demanded an investigation after the American schoolboy's alleged assault was caught on mobile phone. ● An Israeli policeman has been charged with assaulting a 15-year-old American boy who was filmed apparently being beaten by officers in East Jerusalem. Tariq Abu Khadair was attacked as Palestinians protested against the brutal killing of his 16-year-old cousin Mohammed Abu Khadair. The murder, apparently in revenge for the killings of three Israeli teens in June, led to the eight-week war in Gaza. Tariq, who goes to school in Florida, was pictured with severe facial injuries after the assault, which was captured on a mobile phone and released by a human rights group.
September 11, 2001, was a horrific and tragic day — nearly three thousand people perished in the terrorist attacks that drove a knife straight into the heart of America. Apart from being a brutal blow to the pride and stature of the most powerful nation on earth, the events of 9/11 were also a major wake-up call for many Americans and others around the world. For many reasons, the attacks of 9/11 inspired a great number of people to begin investigating major world events, attempting to ascertain what sinister force lies behind such atrocities. By looking at historical events more deeply and with a more critical eye, many millions of people across the globe have come to know the truth.
In patriot circles it is often said that the engine driving the madness that has engulfed our planet since 9/11 is the ‘New World Order’ — a coalition of rich and powerful ‘globalists’ hell-bent on transforming the world into a tyrannical prison society. This popular idea represents only a portion of the truth. This ‘New World Order’ that is so often talked about these days is in reality a ‘Jew World Order’ that is spearheaded by a contingent of psychopathic Jewish supremacists who aim to establish some form of world dominion, as ancient Jewish religious texts had prophesied.
The shocking images of the unbelievable violence that took place on 9/11 have been seared into the memories of every American citizen. The remarkable precision and coordination of the heinous aerial assaults on the World Trade Center Twin Towers and the Pentagon was a surreal sight for many. The unthinkable collapses of the Twin Towers and WTC-7 at nearly free-fall speed raised some immediate questions.
Before the dust of the collapsed Twin Towers had even settled on the ground, many critical thinkers were already asking hard questions as to what really happened and who was really behind the attacks. The official explanation of the Bush administration, which was fully endorsed by the mass media, that nineteen Arabs with box-cutters directed by a bearded guy in a cave in Afghanistan miraculously made all of this carnage happen, despite a multi-billion dollar U.S. military, security and defense system standing in their way, is an outrageous, ridiculous, and preposterous contention — an insult to our intelligence.
The official story of 9/11 is believed by fewer and fewer people every year. Polls are beginning to show that there are many more people who are skeptical of the U.S. government’s story than those who blindly accept it. The objective of this work is not to explain or uncover exactly how 9/11 was done in the physical sense, since there is already a plethora of literature and video documentaries highlighting the scientific impossibilities of the official story. Rather, this book is an attempt to elucidate who did it and why.
Darkmoon ■ 9/11: The Shocking Truth Laid Bare
● For more than eleven years, Israel has been wildly celebrating the success of its 9/11 operation against the United States of America. The latest example: Israeli children recently dressed up as the burning Twin Towers, complete with impaled exploding airplanes, to celebrate the bizarre Jewish holiday known as Purim.
● Purim exalts and commemorates an ancient operation very much like 9/11. It glorifies the deceptions of Esther, who concealed her Jewish identity to seduce the King of Persia, then slyly tricked him into slaughtering 75,000 people deemed “enemies of the Jews.”
● In other words, Purim celebrates Jews lying, secretly penetrating the highest levels of government, and manipulating the leaders of an empire into mass-murdering perceived “enemies of the Jewish people.” That is exactly what the neoconservative Likudnik extremists - Wolfowitz, Perle, Libby, and the rest - did on September 11th, 2001. The only difference is that these modern, neocon Esthers would eventually kill millions of innocent people, not just 75,000.
Les Visible ■ They Did It! They do it AND...That's It!
Gilad Atzmon ■ The Guardian of Zion reported yesterday that: “Tory chief whip attacks protesters' response to Gaza conflict and comparisons between Israel's actions and Nazi war crimes”. Michael Gove stated, “too many people are conflating legitimate criticism of Israel's general policies with straightforward anti-Semitism?" It would be enlightening to learn from Gove how he suggests that one formulate an appropriate kosher criticism of the Jewish State and its Jewish lobbies without being tagged as an anti-Semite. Is criticism of the fact that 80% of Tory MPs (Gove included) are friends of Israel a legitimate criticism of the Jewish state and its power? Is the fact that 80% of the British conservative MPS care about Tel Aviv, but not one of them has paid enough attention to Glasgow or Paisley a valid criticism? Or is any such critique classified as Jew hatred that I will be accused of spewing once again.
A new video has emerged showing Israeli soldiers violently arresting a seven-year-old Palestinian boy in the occupied West Bank. ● The incident took place in the city of al-Khalil (Hebron) on Monday morning after several young children started throwing stones at an Israeli checkpoint. Palestinian sources said that Israeli troops came out of the checkpoint and threw stun grenades and fired tear gas canisters at the children. The Israeli forces arrested Yousef Hajajreh, 12, and Oday Rajabi, 7, the latter being on his way to school. A teacher was also forced into a headlock as he was trying to intervene in the arrest of the crying seven-year old. The Israeli forces dragged him up the road, where he was arrested. Palestinian sources added that Malak Salaymeh, 18, was also detained as he confronted the troops. Seven-year-old Rajabi was reportedly detained at the checkpoint for around 40 minutes before being released.
The INS Tanin, Israel's fourth and most advanced Dolphin class submarine – is en route to Israel from Germany, and the Navy has released video of the vessel and the ceremony in which it was launched at Germany's Kiel shipyards at week's end. ● Reports claim Israel has modified the Dolphin's 650mm launch tubes to allow the launch of missiles that could carry nuclear warheads. Such missiles should give Israel the ability to deter belligerent neighbors like Iran, if it delivers a sufficiently convincing threat to make use of them. However – Israel has thus far maintained a policy of nuclear ambiguity. The German weekly Der Spiegel reported that the submarines have a nuclear capability and are part of Israel's weaponry to counter the nuclear threat from Iran. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has denied that the submarines have a nuclear capability.
Julie Lévesque ■ While Gazans suffer from daily power shutdowns, Israel is signing an important deal to sell gas to Jordan, gas which, researchers say, was stolen from Palestinians. || In addition to confiscating Palestine’s energy resources, Israel has destroyed Gaza’s only power station in its latest military offensive. The Middle East Monitor reported September 4, 2014 that a Memorandum of Understanding ”is due to be signed between Israel and Jordan in the reservoir of Leviathan to export Israeli natural gas to Jordan during the next 15 years with a total value of $15 billion”. (Jordan to buy $15bn of Israeli gas, Middle East Monitor, September 4, 2014.) Israel’s first natural gas export deal will also be signed by “the Leviathan field partner Noble Energy Inc. on behalf of itself and its partners Delek Group Ltd. units Avner Oil and Gas LP and Delek Drilling Limited Partnership and Ratio Oil Exploration (1992) LP.” (Leviathan partners signing $15b Jordanian gas deal, Globes, Israel business news, on September 3, 2014) We may recall that in the wake of the Israeli bombing and invasion under Operation Cast Lead, “Palestinian gas fields were de facto confiscated by Israel in derogation of international law”.
The damage caused by the Israeli military operation in Gaza makes it impossible for thousands of people to return home, despite the ceasefire, due to lack of services, water and electricity, Ramesh Rajasingham of the UN humanitarian agency OCHA told RT. ● The UN has released a new report stating that the number of people displaced in Gaza is still rising, despite a truce put in place after a full-scale operation by Israel against Hamas that claimed the lives of 2,210 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and over 70 Israelis. The UN report notes that there was a significant drop in the number of displaced Palestinians at the end of August, down to 53,000, but the situation changed at the beginning of this month, with more Palestinian refugees flooding into UN shelters, sending the figure up to 58,217.
