The United States [was forced by] Israel/the Lobby [to] sign an "agreement" under which $429 million of American taxpayers’ money will be transferred immediately to Israel [stolen by Israel] to fund its Iron Dome missile system. ● The pentagon says the agreement was signed last week in a bid to “continue support of the production of the Iron Dome weapon system” and provide opportunities for US industry to “receive meaningful co-production opportunities for Iron Dome components.” On March 4, the US House of Representatives also passed a bill which named Israel a “major strategic partner” of the US and called for the expansion of Washington’s military ties with Tel Aviv. The legislation, which was passed by [an incredible] 410 to 1 vote, calls for expanding the delivery of US arms and military technologies to Israel and commits US Congress to increase funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile system.
"Two on missing Malaysia flight used stolen European Passports". The comments are funny.

The Israeli regime has reportedly cut off the water supply to some 45,000 Palestinians residing in the areas around East al-Quds (Jerusalem), local sources say. ● Residents of Shuafat refugee camp said on Wednesday that their water had been cut off for nearly three days, while a number of other Palestinian suburbs near al-Quds had also been without water for 20 days. According to the residents, the Israeli water authority started to gradually reduce the water supplies about two weeks ago until it completely stopped. However, the Israeli water company, Gihon, has denied the water shut-off to the Arab areas. Khaled al-Khalidi, a member of the Shuafat’s popular committee, said the Tel Aviv regime had gone back on a UN-brokered agreement to provide water service to the Palestinian refugees.
Patrick Slattery ■ Our Jewish Secretary of State John Kerry (Kohn) appointed as his Assistant Secretary of State for Jewish Affairs Jewish Neocon Victoria Nuland (Nudelman). Nuland spend the better part of her tenure so far shuttling back and forth to Ukraine in order to overthrow the moderatly pro-Russian president and install someone more condusive to Jewish supremacist interests. Is it any surprise that Nuland’s choice, as she voiced in her famous F*** the EU phone conversation, was fellow Jewish tribalist Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who is the Prime Minister of the government that emerged from the coup. Now Yatsenyuk’s government is extending the Zio-nepotism by appointing as Dnepropetrovsk governor a Jewish oligarch by the name of Igor Kolomoysky, who has Israeli citizenship. How ironic is it that so much of the muscle for the violent overthrow of the old government came from movements that are openly hostile to Jews, yet their actions are only strengthening the Jewish grip on the country. This is the power of divide and conquer.
The totally corrupt anti-American Obama regime is trying to appoint the head or former head of the Israeli Central Bank as the Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve. The scuttlebutt is that Obama has been paid tens of millions of dollars to deliver the US Federal Reserve to Israel’s control. I don’t know whether to believe this or not, but considering the corruption of all sectors of the US government, I would not be surprised by anything. In Washington there is nothing that cannot be bought. You can read about it here and make up your own mind. Don’t expect any honest reporting from the presstitute media. Obama, of course, will lie through his teeth, and so will the media. Whatever the truth turns out to be, it will be the opposite of the Obama regime’s explanation.
According to the Israeli website alyaexpress-news.com, a unit of 35 armed and masked men and women on Maidan square is commanded by four former Israeli Army officers, who wear a kippah under their helmets. The site claims that these former officers, who live today in Ukraine, joined the movement since the beginning of the events alongside the Freedom Party (Svoboda), although the latter has a reputation for being virulently anti-Semitic. With the help of the Israeli Embassy, this intervention force reportedly also handled the transfer of 17 seriously injured persons to Israel for treatment. The presence of Israeli units had been reported in a similar scenario in Georgia, both in during the "Rose Revolution" (2003) that in the war against South Ossetia (2008).
L'attaquant français de West Bromwich Albion Nicolas Anelka a été suspendu cinq matches jeudi par la fédération anglaise (FA) pour sa "quenelle" du 28 décembre, soit la peine minimum pour un geste considéré par certains comme antisémite. ● Une sanction plus importante aurait pu précipiter vers une fin de saison prématurée, voire une retraite anticipée, un joueur à la réputation encore plus sulfureuse en France qu'en Angleterre, où il a accomplit une grande partie de sa carrière. [...] La "quenelle" - un bras tendu vers le bas, l'autre bras replié touchant l'épaule - est au coeur d'une vive polémique en France et a été qualifiée de "salut nazi inversé" par la Licra (Ligue internationale contre le racisme et l'antisémitisme). Le débat a touché la Grande-Bretagne par ricochet. Il y a quelques semaines, le ministère de l'Intérieur britannique a interdit à Dieudonné, l'humoriste polémiste français qui en est l'inventeur, d'entrer sur le territoire. Anelka avait été accusé le 20 janvier dans un document de 34 pages d'avoir réalisé "un geste abusif et/ou indécent et/ou insultant et/ou incorrect en relation avec l'origine ethnique et/ou la race et/ou la religion". Le buteur de 34 ans encourrait au minimum cette suspension de cinq matches.
Israel’s ambassador to Norway has been recalled by the foreign ministry (see Yediot article displayed below). Local Norwegian staff at the embassy and the ambassador’s household staff each accused him of exposing himself and other acts of harassment, an allegation he denies. Israeli media cannot report the name or country in which this diplomat served. But I can [Richard Silverstein]. He is Naim Araidi (Hebrew) an Israeli Druze poet and lecturer in literature at several Israeli colleges. Though he had no previous diplomatic or political experience, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman chose him because, as a Druze he came from Israel’s Arab minority, yet endorsed the strong nationalist views of the Israeli Jewish far-right. Israeli Druze pride themselves on being distinct from the Palestinian minority and even from the majority Muslim culture among Israeli Muslims. They serve willingly in the IDF and use such service as an entré into majority Jewish society. Lieberman spoke publicly at the time of Araidi’s appointment about the reasons for it, noting he was sent to Norway because of its strong BDS “delegitimization” movement. The foreign minister felt that an Israeli minority would make an especially strong case against this tendency, since Norwegians have generally been quite supportive of the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa and other movements for ethnic justice.
Stavanger Aftenblad: Israels ambassadør hjemkalt
The new commander of the anti-Damascus militancy group, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Abdul-Ilah al-Bashir has been trained in Israel, media reports said. ● Al-Bashir had gone to Israel for treatment last year after he was wounded in Southern Syria during clashes with the Syrian army, Al-Ahd news website reported. Al-Bashir was in charge of the military council in Southern Syria and he was transferred to a hospital in Israel after he was wounded in a military operation in Al-Rushid region. Al-Bashir replaced former FSA commander Salim Idris. The FSA declared Bashir as the replacement for Idris in a statement posted online. While Al-Bashir was wounded, the news reports were spread that Al-Bashir had died and buried in Daraa province in a bid to distract attentions from his presence in Israel where he was receiving military training. A military analyst told Al-Ahd that the appointment of Al-Bashir took place concurrent with the defeat of the militants in Al-Qalmoun region and after the second round of the Geneva II talks. Idriss had long faced criticism by militants on the ground for failing to gather sufficient military aid for the armed groups.
The origin of the Ashkenazi Jews, who come most recently from Europe, has largely been shrouded in mystery. But a new study suggests that at least their maternal lineage may derive largely from Europe. Though the finding may seem intuitive, it contradicts the notion that European Jews mostly descend from people who left Israel and the Middle East around 2,000 years ago. Instead, a substantial proportion of the population originates from local Europeans who converted to Judaism, said study co-author Martin Richards, an archaeogeneticist at the University of Huddersfield in England.

The battle for Kiev’s Independence Square has reignited as rioters clash with security forces amid sniper fire. Dozens more have been injured in the escalating violence with reports of more civilian casualties. ● Rioters have reached the Rada building (the country's parliament), while the police have been pushed back into Mariinsky park nearby. An emergency evacuation has been declared and parliament members and employees are leaving the building. Protesters hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at the police on Thursday morning as violence broke out once again in spite of the day of mourning that had been declared as a mark of respect for the 35 people who have died in the unrest. Ambulances have been sent to Maidan and video footage shows several people carried away on stretchers. Police are throwing tear gas grenades at protesters, according to Unian news agency.
What I'm trying to say is that Zionism is dividing humanity. It is trying to rule by making us fight one another. They have organized all the wars and organized all the disorders on this planet." -- Dieudonné
For the past several months we have seen all sorts of political turmoil hit the Ukraine including violent protests which have left many people injured or dead. A former member of the Soviet Union and a Russian border country, the Ukraine has become a primary target of Zionist aggression. They have been targeted primarily due to their historical ties with Russia which under Vladimir Putin have successfully blocked a number of Zionist agendas including a potential American military strike on Syria this past year. By destabilizing the Ukraine they hope to bring in a puppet government that will move the country away from Russian influence. The on-going protests against the current Ukrainian government are largely being financed and controlled by the United States and Israel. This is not part of a true popular uprising as the corporate media propagandists will have you believe. The United States government has actually invested $5 billion dollars into this on-going operation to overthrow the Ukrainian government. This is more commonly known by those in the propaganda machine as spreading freedom and democracy. Victoria Nuland the fanatical war mongering Zionist Jew and current assistant U.S. Secretary of State confirmed all of this in a December 13th 2013 speech that is available for all to see. She may have used more friendly and politically correct terminology to describe the agenda, but considering what is happening now it becomes easy to read between the lines.
A chilling video has emerged showing the merciless execution of 14 men in Syria by a brutal group that are too extreme even for Al Qaeda. It shows the blindfolded men – some of whom appear to be just teenagers – kneeling in front of a pit at night, illuminated by torchlight. A man, horrifyingly calm, shoots the first man in the back of the head with a pistol. It is here that the video freezes, the scenes too horrible to show. More shots follow in quick, methodical succession. By the end, there are 14 blood-spattered corpses in and around the mass grave.
A political analyst says Germany’s recent decision to take counter-espionage measures could set a precedent for other countries, stressing all American intelligence is now compromised with Israel. ● “The United States has been compromised and there is a succession of presidents who have to have known this to be the case. It apparently originated with George Herbert Walker Bush, but was obviously therefore been known to Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and to Barack Obama,” James Fetzer, Professor Emeritus of the University of Minnesota Duluth, told Press TV on Tuesday. He added that these presidents, their vice presidents and their military chiefs should be held accountable for making such a compromise which “is the greatest act of treasons in the history” of the American nation. “This puts the whole [Edward] Snowden episode into an entirely different light, because they have been lambasting him for revealing the NSA [National Security Agency] surveillance program, but what they are not themselves disclosing is that all American intelligence is now compromised with Israel,” the commentator added.
Reporter John Lyons shows clear evidence that Israeli settlers in the West Bank regularly attack Palestinian school children, knowing the authorities will not intervene. He also discovers there are two legal systems operating. One for Israeli children and one for young Palestinians. It's an impossible situation that may provide temporary security for Israel, but in the long term may well breed a new generation of Palestinians prepared to do anything to gain retribution.
New video footage has emerged showing the bodies of 21 people executed by al-Qaeda-linked militants in Syria. ● The video, posted online on Friday, shows 21 people massacred by militants from the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in the village of Haritan in the northwest of Aleppo. The bodies of the victims, including other foreign-backed militants, were thrown into a well. Haritan has been a strategic area during the crisis that has gripped the country since 2011. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies heavily on a network of spies working for the foreign-backed opposition, said ISIL members also beheaded four rival militants in the northern city of Azaz. Another video was released on Thursday showing Takfiri terrorists strangulating a young girl in public.
At least 13 Palestinians have been injured by Israeli forces in the northern Gaza Strip one day after a 26-year-old man was killed by Israeli gunfire. ● The incident occurred on Friday when Israeli soldiers opened fire on a group of Palestinian youths in the northern town of Jabalia, a few kilometers north of Gaza City. The latest in the string of Israeli shootings against Gaza residents came as Palestinians laid to rest Ibrahim Suleiman Mansur, 26, who was killed by Israeli forces on Thursday. Ibrahim and another Palestinian man were collecting gravel and scrap metal when they came under attack. He was shot in the head and died on impact. His companion was injured in the leg.
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) stoned to death a young Syrian girl for membership in Facebook social network. ● Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed terrorists and militants against the Syrian army and civilians across the country. Thousands of people have been killed since terrorist and armed groups turned protest rallies into armed clashes. The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.
Australia's ABC station aired a televised report on Palestinian children detained by the Israeli army, angering Israel. The report said children are treated with brutality when they are arrested from the streets or abducted from their parents' homes. ● ABC's Middle East correspondent John Lyons prepared the report for the programme Four Corners. Lyons said: "The Israeli army has always been a feared fighting force. Today; it is the focus of accusations of ill-treatment of Palestinian children in the West Bank." The report reveals interviews with Palestinian youth describing ill-treatment, intimidation and threats they suffered while in detention. The youth claim that many of their relatives were abducted from their homes by the armed forces. Israel's international spokesman, Yigal Palmor told the documentary workers: "The natural reaction is that these are intolerable cases, and I would like my authorities to do their utmost to make sure that this will not be repeated and this will change. I believe this is what we are doing." However, settlers claimed "the Australian report ignores the settlers' need for security and to ensure that children will not assault them."
The Israeli authorities have blocked 70 patients from Gaza from entering Israel to receive medical treatment because their transfer documents were marked “State of Palestine,” officials said Wednesday. ● Until recently, official documentation had used the term “Palestinian territories.” But the logo was changed in mid-December, a year after Palestinians won recognition as a U.N. observer state, despite fierce Israeli opposition. “The Israelis have prevented 70 sick people who need to go to Israeli hospitals from crossing Erez because it said ‘State of Palestine’ on their transfer request,” said a senior Palestinian official at the Gaza district coordination office.

Armed forces chief of staff General Hassan Firouzabadi has warned the Islamic republic's arch-foes that Iran is prepared for a "decisive battle" if attacked, Fars news agency reported on Wednesday. ● "We are ready for the decisive battle with America and the Zionist regime (Israel)," Fars quoted Firouzabadi as saying. He also warned neighbouring nations not to allow any attack to be launched on Iran from their soil. "We do not have any hostility towards regional states, but if we are ever attacked from the American bases in the region we will strike that area back," he said. Washington has many military bases in the region, including in Bahrain, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
Foreign-backed militants in Syria have taken control of an Alawite village in the province of Hama, massacring a number of people there. ● On Sunday, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies on a network of spies working for the foreign-backed opposition, said the militants killed 25 pro-government fighters in the village of Maan. However, Syrian officials said the victims were mainly women and children and accused the extremists of committing a massacre in the village. "This massacre isn't the first," Social Affairs Minister Kinda al-Shamat said, adding that similar attacks had occurred during the nearly three-year unrest. She criticized the silence of international organizations over the killings.

Israel destroyed 30 Palestinian properties in occupied territory, displacing families for second time in two weeks. || The United Nations has condemned Israel's demolition of 30 Palestinian properties in the occupied West Bank, saying it displaced families for the second time in less than two weeks. "I am concerned about the destruction of Palestinian structures in the Jordan Valley yesterday," UN Humanitarian Coordinator James Rawley said in a statement on Wednesday.
"The demolitions resulted in the displacement of 41 people, including 24 children, and affected another 20. Both refugee and non-refugee families were affected." the statement added. "Some of the families were displaced for the second time this month and a number of donor-funded structures were among those demolished."
Israel's civilian administration of the occupied West Bank had no immediate comment on the demolitions. A group of 36 NGOs last week urged Israel to stop demolishing Palestinian homes, hours ahead of a visit by US Secretary of State John Kerry aimed at revitalising Middle East peace talks. "Demolitions often occur to facilitate the expansion of illegal Israeli settlements, with 60 percent of demolitions occurring in Palestinian communities close to settlement zones," rights groups and charities including Oxfam, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch said in a joint statement. "Since the resumption of the peace process in July, Israel has destroyed 207 Palestinian homes and property in the occupied West Bank, displacing 311 Palestinians, over half of whom are children," they said.
Annie Robbins ■ “Odeh is dying, they didn’t let [the ambulance] enter”. Those are the crushing words of Radaad Hamad as he recalls the day six weeks ago that Israeli soldiers sat in jeeps meters away and did nothing as his brother lay dying.
Odeh Hamad was killed on his 27th birthday, shot in the head with a live bullet by the Israeli military December 20, 2013. At the time he was with Radaad, and the two brothers were collecting scrap metal at the Beit Hanoun garbage dump in Gaza to support their family. Odeh was 27, and Radad is 23. Both were known among the locals as making their living off collecting scrap. After Amira Hass wrote about the killing Israel’s military claimed that it had fired warning shots at the men. “The troops on site repeatedly tried to distance them….”
B’tselem recently issued a report about the killing of Odeh Hamad that tells a different story: B’Tselem’s inquiries indicate that ‘Odeh Hamad did, indeed, cut some of the barbed wire close to the military perimeter fence, apparently in order to sell the metal. However, B’Tselem’s inquiries have found that, contrary to the Military Spokesperson’s claim, a ‘suspect arrest procedure’ was not carried out. The fact that Hamad was hit in the head rather than in his legs indicates that the shooting did not follow this procedure, which prohibits shooting at the head at any stage. Moreover, according to Radad Hamad’s testimony, no attempt was made prior to the shooting to warn the brothers or to get them to move away from the fence. ‘Odeh Hamad was shot in the head despite posing no danger to anyone. While he was lying wounded, close to the soldiers on the other side of the fence, Red Crescent paramedics wasted precious time trying to find him. The soldiers offered Hamad no medical assistance, nor did they help the paramedics locate him.
