Women prisoners assaulted by Zionist thug jail authorities

Zionist occupation jail authorities assaulted Palestinian women prisoners on Tuesday morning amid a push to enforce strict new measures against Palestinian inmates introduced by Israel’s far-right Minister of National Security Itamar Ben-Gvir. 

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society said in a statement that Israeli forces beat women prisoners in Damon jail, fired tear gas at them and used pepper spray.

The Palestinian Authority’s prisoners’ affairs commission said the Zionist Prison Service (IPS) also confiscated electronic devices and some personal items from the prisoners in what it called “collective punishment”.

In response, the prisoners set some cells ablaze.

The IPS said Yasmeen Shaaban, the representative of the Palestinian women prisoners who was among those assaulted, was put in solitary confinement for attempting to set her cell on fire.

“The punitive actions taken in the Damon prison will have consequences in all prisons.

The situation is getting worse because of the measures taken by the fascist minister Itamar Ben-Gvir.

The Israeli government bears full responsibility for the situation and its consequences,” the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society said.

The assault on women prisoners caused anger among Palestinian detainees across all Israeli jails.

The prisoners’ commission said inmates in Ofer prison refused to accept their breakfast meals amid news of the crackdown and demanded to speak with Damon prisoners on the phone.

The assault came a day after 120 Palestinians in the notorious Negev desert prison launched a hunger strike against the IPS’s recent punitive measures.

The far right minister of security says Palestinian prisoners getting fresh bread every day is an ‘absurdity’

The IPS had cut electricity in the Negev prison, barred prisoners’ families from visits, and stopped serving them meals.

Dozens of Palestinian prisoners in Ketziot, Ofer and Megiddo prisons were put in solitary confinement over the weekend, allegedly for celebrating the killing of seven Israeli settlers by a Palestinian man in a shooting in occupied East Jerusalem on Friday.

Palestinian prisoners said they will also stop agreeing to security checks by the IPS as part of their protests against the growing crackdowns. 

Strike in East Jerusalem

The rise in prison tensions follows a week of violence across the occupied Palestinian territories.

Israeli forces killed 10 Palestinians in a large-scale raid on Jenin in the occupied West Bank on Thursday which sparked nationwide anger.

A Palestinian man opened fire at Israeli settlers in occupied East Jerusalem on Friday, killing seven. 

The shooting prompted harsh crackdowns by Israeli forces on Palestinians in East Jerusalem.

On Tuesday, residents of Jabal al-Mukaber and Sheikh Saad, towns in southern Jerusalem, staged a general strike against what they called collective punishment by Israeli authorities against them, which included threats to demolish dozens of houses.

Hundreds of Palestinian homes in Jabal al-Mukaber are threatened by Israeli demolition orders for not having building permits.

This is zionism: Cliff Kincaid: GOP Needs to Emulate Violent British Fascist Group EDL

Israeli authorities make it nearly impossible for Palestinians to get building permits in the city which forces many to build without them. 

According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Israeli demolished 666 Palestinian homes in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 2021, displacing 958 people, a 38 percent increase from the previous year.

ZioCorp owns everything

That includes the financial system, security apparatus, Pentagon, politicians, courts, judges, police, schools, intellectual property, natural resources, utilities, media, big corporations, technology, and whatever else I failed to mention.

ZOG (Zionist Occupied Government) is an antiquated term.

It implies the existence of nation-state governance.

Today’s US is an amalgamation of corporations and parasitic financial institutions largely run by Rothschild Zionists.

America isn’t a nation, it’s a corporate empire, or more accurately- ZioCorp.

First a disclaimer.

When I use terms like “ZOG” or “ZioCorp,” I am not referring to “Fiddler on the Roof” Jews or Moe, Larry, and Curly.

I mean a global criminal banking syndicate headed by satanic usurer Jews and their eugenics-obsessed Rockefeller crime family associate who employ Rothschild Zionists and globalists of all stripes to prop up a business model that rests on the pillars of debt slavery, spiritual/physical destruction, and planetary rape.

I harbor no ill will toward any race, religion, ethnic group, consenting adult orientation, or gender. In Tao, internal transcends external.

Second disclaimer (or notice).

I sometimes use colorful language.

This article is not suitable for delicate ladies or children. If that’s you, stop reading.

ZioCorp owns everything.

That includes the financial system, security apparatus, Pentagon, politicians, courts, judges, police, schools, intellectual property, natural resources, utilities, media, big corporations, technology, and whatever else I failed to mention.

ZioCorp holds full spectrum dominance over its subjects.

Neoliberal capitalism enabled ZioCorp to commoditize everything- including human beings.

Not content with owning every grain of sand and drop of water, global finance wants the proprietary rights to your DNA, internal organs, blood and lymphatic systems, and thought processes.

They changed the name of the personnel department to human resources.

That wasn’t by accident. You are a harvestable resource.

ZioCorp isn’t like the traditional dictatorship run by a mustachioed strong man.

Decisions are made in boardrooms by people you will never see or know.

It’s what political philosopher Sheldon Wolin called “inverted totalitarianism.”

ZioCorp’s loyal servants come from all races, genders, and religions.

Don’t think because you are White or Black, and you get a White or Black judge, he or she will go easier on you.

It’s like the NWA “F*ck the Police” rap song says: “But don’t let it be a Black and a White one.

Cause they’ll slam ya down to the street top.

Black police showin’ out for the White cop.”

The song’s point being the Black cop beats down the Black arrestee harder to gain approval from his White partner.

Your racial brethren will kick your face in twice as hard to prove their loyalty to ZioCorp.

See Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, etc.

To understand ZioCorp, we need to explore capitalism, and more importantly, the inherent flaws within it that made the current situation possible.

Some people freak over any critique of capitalism, as they regard it as an attack on American patriotism.

After all, America was founded as a capitalist country

Someone from the reactionary right is reading this and thinking: “Criticize capitalism?!

You Antifa pinko communist Marxist Jew.

You just want to take my money and give it to some #BLM crack ho and her kids.

Macrocosmic Thinking: the Rothschild Private Central Banking System & Empire and Why YOUR ...

F*ck you and the menorah you rode in on.”

Easy sheriff. To quote American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman, “Cool it with the anti-semitic remarks.”

Pretend you’re at one of those 5-star luxury ashrams frequented by rich White broads and the Maharishi’s at the head of the class telling you to go ommmmm. Breathe baby, breathe.

I recognize that capitalism contains positive aspects.

It can take the selfishness and egotism found within human nature and channel those traits into productive outcomes.

Ethical entrepreneurs produce amazing things.

Some people express their creativity through small business ownership.

Because it focuses on “the individual,” capitalism gave us the Bill of Rights.

Millennia of buying and selling have ingrained market thinking into the human psyche.

Even non-technological societies use beads and bird feathers to conduct transactions.

I’m not suggesting eliminating money.

Imagine buying a car on Craigslist if you needed to show up with a herd of sheep to take home a Camry.

However, capitalism also destroys the “collective.”

Unchecked, it devours everything in its path.

It eats the poor, working class, middle class, and eventually the upper middle class.

It also destroys the environment, leaving us with radioactive oceans and poisoned rivers.

In end-stage capitalism, oligarchs fight each other for the last slice of cherry pie while the masses drown in a sea of economic and social chaos. Sound familiar?

Of all the nations, China seems most willing to experiment with different economic paradigms.

They may eventually lead humanity to a post-scarcity Star Trek economy where people work for their purpose rather than a paycheck.

Whether they succeed or not is indeterminate at this juncture.

City of London bankers plan on turning China into corporate headquarters after the US collapses.

Global finance has an impressive track record with national infiltration and takeover.

Never underestimate their capabilities.

The former United States republic now US Anglo-Zionist Empire stands as the textbook model for banker takeover.

How’d it happen?

For the sake of brevity, I’ll provide the sped-up Dr. Morell B12- cocaine-amphetamine elixir version.

The Founding Fathers “American Experiment” sought to replace monarchical rule with rule by the “Invisible Hand of Capitalism.”

As per their guru John Locke, the cornerstone of the new republic became economics and private property.

Being wealthy landowners gave the Founding Fathers a huge advantage.

Their willingness to commoditize African slaves to save on labor costs demonstrates their religious devotion to capitalism.

To get the hoi polloi to fight for the new system, the nouveau plutocrats promised them constitutional rights and fat land grants.

Why else would the soldiers freeze their asses off at Valley Forge? While the average White male gained some groovy civil liberties, the founding Fathers reneged on the land grants and other promised perks.

George Washington’s crushing of the farmers’ “Whisky Rebellion” laid the foundation for an IRS police state and oligarchic rule.

In the 1800s, French political philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville observed that Americans were obsessed with getting rich.

A money-driven nation becomes an easy mark for Central Bankers.

The US Civil War allowed the Rothschilds to get their intractable foot in the bank vault door.* (*Sarah E.V. Emery, “Seven Financial Conspiracies Which Have Enslaved The American People.”)

This was followed by the unconstitutional Federal Reserve Act of 1913 which turned over US money creation to the international financiers.

A move that resulted in the theft of hundreds of trillions of dollars.

After the US became the bankers’ central hub, it needed a permanent war machine to keep the global grift going.

In his prescient farewell address, Eisenhower warned about the dangers of a runaway Military Industrial Complex.

The Wall Street-inflicted Great Depression almost sank capitalism.

FDR instituted bank reforms and social safety nets to save his fellow plutocrats and the flailing system.

In their insatiable greed, the banker class started chipping away at the policies that both rescued them and created a stable middle class.

Bit by bit, the hued-out spaces were filled with corporate cement.

Saint Ronald Reagan’s eyedropper “trickle-down economics” deregulated the banks and corporations and laid the finishing girders for the corporatist dystopia skyscraper.

Reagan’s firing of the striking air traffic controllers destroyed organized labor, and the standard of living previously enjoyed by the working class.

Bill Clinton completed the edifice with NAFTA, repeal of Glass-Steagall banking rules, outsourcing of the manufacturing base, and steroidal Mr. Universe corporate deregulation.

Many Americans went along with these policies in hopes they’d become rich enough to garner an invite to the Donald Trump-P Diddy-Miss America contestant hot tub party.

A big problem with making money the cornerstone of a society is that you get a Ralph Kramden population forever searching for the next “no money down” get-rich-quick infomercial scheme.

If that doesn’t work, play the lottery.

“You’ve got to be in it to win it.”

After the 9/11 zio-attack, George W. Bush told Americans to “go shopping.”

The oligarchy kept the serfs hoofing it by dangling dreams of solid gold Trump toilet bowls and oil sheik mega yachts coupled with fear of death by predatory capitalism.

However, even Rush Limbaugh devotee ding dongs are beginning to realize the game is rigged.

The glass ceiling of upward mobility has turned to lead.

This revelation tends to upset people. “Fight Club’s” Tyler Durden said it best: “We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d be millionaires, movie gods, and rock stars.

But we won’t.

We’re slowly learning that fact.

And we’re very very pissed off.”

Damn straight b!tch.

Give us our free sh!t or burn this motherf*cker to the ground. Lindsey Graham, Chuck Schumer, and their corporate donors are stealing whatever’s not welded to the floor.

If you’re middle/working class, take anything and everything from the “government” that you can, and use it to stock up on ammo, freeze-dried food, and Johnny Walker Blue Label.

Fight for your share of the loot before the Central Bankers install their NWO digital currency.

Then the faucets get superglue tightened.

In the meantime, fly in the helicopter money you child-raping globalist scum.

Riot for UBI or let the old lady work so you can stay home and practice your tiger claw thrust and flying tortoise shell trachea strike.

Civil war and economic crash ahead. Let the robots flip the burgers.

AI can man the call centers.

Employers broke the social contract when they forced workers to get the DARPA vax.

If you succumbed because you dislike sleeping in the street then hopefully you received your dose from the control or low-concentration batch.

If they injured you or ruined the DNA your ancestors fought saber tooth tigers to give you, you’d need to put in serious work to make that right.

That could include some weekends and holidays.

While not easy, leveling that karma would be better than Norma Jean’s sweet cherry pie.

As a side note- I’m not an anti-vax zealot.

If an adult wants to take the mRNA vaccine, that’s their business.

Just don’t mandate it.

And stop releasing “gain of function” bioweapons on the public.

Back to “free government cheese.”

Mention universal healthcare, UBI, or free college, and the Ben Shapiro ziotarian kicks out his “we can’t afford it” auto-response.

We can’t afford universal healthcare but the 2008 29 trillion dollar banker bailout (CNBC Money) was totally doable.

And so was the 6 trillion dollar Iraq War that Shapiro pushed.

And the hundreds of billions in corporate subsidies.

And the trillions we send to Israel either directly or through fighting their wars.

According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, it would take 20 billion dollars to end homelessness in the US.

That’s half of one Ukraine War installment payment.

In controlled scarcity capitalism, they don’t want to end homelessness.

The homeless guy scrounging the trash for bottles reminds you that you can never quit your sh!t job- even if it means submitting to medical experimentation.

Ziocapitalism is a scam.

Not only could we have universal healthcare (medical bills are the leading cause of bankruptcy in the US- American Journal of Public Health), but that stolen loot could provide every American with a 100 grand check and a gold-plated Cadillac.

It’s not that the average American wouldn’t mind breaking a few bucks off their paycheck so Billy the Orphan could get his leukemia treatments, but once the wallet cracks a little, the government inserts its tire jack and cranks it all the way open.

Then the bread gets funneled to the pig trough where Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea stick their snouts in it. Or it gets turned into rainbow flag bombs that get dropped on Middle East kids.

Big corporations and oligarch billionaires don’t pay taxes.

Even if a few sometimes pay “for show taxes,” that money is looped back to them via the Central Bankers.

If you can’t afford an army of tax lawyers and offshore corporation setups, you pay.

If you get snared in an IRS audit, you could get fisted harder than a twink in a Gay pride parade S&M float.

Taxation is a ZioCorp scam. Advances in monetary technology make taxation obsolete.

Public banking as advocated by economists like Ellen Brown along with new high-tech financial tools would allow Billy to get his cancer medicine and you to hold on to your bread.

ZioCorp keeps the IRS around to smash small businesses and the middle class.

Taxation is a police state tool that allows the parasites to strip you of your assets and throw you in prison.

Step on a crack, and the IRS charges you with breaking your momma’s back.

If we don’t raise taxes, does that mean the Fed cartel should print even more Ponzi digital dollars to pay for social safety nets?

Absolutely. The stated US debt is 30 trillion.

According to Forbes, the actual debt is 200 trillion.

It doesn’t matter if it hits 500 gazillion. It’s unpayable. When it pops, it pops.

From a theoretical perspective, if a society evolves technologically, robots and AI (or machine learning) replace human labor.

If it comes down to Universal Basic Income or Davos depopulation- I choose UBI.

It’s going to take some real Jimmy Hoffa UBI teamsters to make it happen.

In my unscientific estimate, 80 percent of ‘Murican men are either weak p*ssy momma whores, zipper brains, or in most cases, both.

About 20 percent are solid cats with 1-5 percent of those being psycho-warriors. The 20 percent determine how it goes.

The political class are criminals.

They understand your wanting cash.

That’s not subversive, like asking for free speech or an end to the zio-wars.

They might cough up a few bucks out of self-interest with the proper application of pressure.

The Hollywood celebrity “c*ntessa” with 50 million Instagram followers means nothing to me.

It’s the working man (and woman) who ships food to my table and keeps the lights on.

They deserve their cut.

As does the orphan and widow.

As for Hollywood- keep Sean Penn.

While I liked him in “The Falcon and the Snowman,” Bill Gates pumped so much mRNA jizz up his ass, it shot out his nose like milk during a laughing fit.

I think the high force pressure caused brain damage.

Capitalism creates billionaires.

Billionaires destroy civil society. I can live with millionaires.

Billionaires buy your government, e.g., Citizens United v FEC. I don’t care how many “checks and balances” get put in place, at some point they bribe the gatekeepers.

I think the best solution is to impose a 5 million dollar per year personal wealth cap.

If an ethical entrepreneur makes more than that, let him put it in trust for his kids (who have the same cap), reinvest in new ventures, or donate the surplus to Sister Mary’s orphanage.

No Bill Gates fake philanthropic foundations please.

If you can’t live the good life on an annual 5 million tax-free salary, you’re what “Scarface” called a “haza” (chazzer).

What’s a haza?

Like Tony Montana explained to his former boss Frank Lopez, “You remember what a haza is Frank?

It’s a pig that don’t fly straight.”

The rentier capitalism parasite FIRE economy is a haza system.

When it comes to billionaire-bought political systems, the US has no rival.

I’m amazed people still vote. Dominion should install a seat with an electric cattle prod dildo in their rigged voting booths.

That would provide Americans with a more authentic voting experience.

Keep jerking off to hope porn and Marjorie Taylor Greene pics.

I prefer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

To help cover the congressional pay raise, MTG and AOC could star together in a girl-on-girl pay-per-view special.

Highrollers could book private sessions. Caligula put the senators’ wives to work in the imperial brothel.

I think that sister f*cker was on to something.

Even if you remove the zio from capitalism, it contains fundamental flaws.

Take the Apple iPhone.

I don’t know how often Apple comes out with a new model, but for the sake of this exercise, pretend it’s once a year.

Apple probably has all the “bells and whistles” that they’re going to install over the next ten years.

However, if Apple sells you an indestructible iPhone with the next ten years of bells and whistles on it, the company loses money.

They would have sold you one iPhone instead of ten.

To maximize Apple’s profits and meet consumer demand, the CIA overthrows reformist governments to keep the lithium flowing and the planet turns into a toxic waste dump.

The GDP endless growth/consumption model is crashing hard.

The globalist oligarchs who created the problem have come up with the solution- and a final one at that.

People are tired of the “Capitalism is Jesus” Ayn Rand rap.

So am I. Full disclosure- I liked “Atlas Shrugged” and “The Fountainhead.”

As for Jesus, his program was a lot closer to pre-2016 Bernie Sanders’ than Milton Friedman’s.

However you view capitalism, or socialism, or Rosicrucianism, or purple flying unicorns named Mandy- it doesn’t really matter.

We’ve entered end-stage capitalism/Great Reset/Tribulation, with no return bus to Mayberry.

ZioCorp’s opted for the controlled collapse business model.

Will it remain on top after the freakshow carnival tent folds in on itself?

I don’t know. I’m stupid. That’s why I follow Tao.

The Three Settler Kidnappings Zionist False Flag

Flash Back-NEVER FORGET

Evidence that came to light after Israel removed its gag order on information regarding the June 12 kidnapping and murder of three Jewish Israeli students suggests that it was  an Israeli government operation that was intentionally used to punish Hamas and break up the new Palestinian unity government.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had immediately accused Hamas of the kidnapping — without presenting any evidence — and proceeded to “conduct a search” throughout the entirety of the West Bank until the bodies were reportedly found on June 30th.

The “search” entailed arresting and beating up about 600 Hamas members (including legislators) and trashing about 2100 homes; Israeli forces killed at least 7 Palestinians.

Israel also heightened its daily air strikes on the Gaza Strip, which has been under the Israeli blockade since Sept. 2006.

The Gaza government appealed to the UN for relief, which responded by condemning the kidnappings rather than the massive abuse of the Palestinian population. And then urging “all parties” to show restraint.

On July 1, Israel removed a gag order on information about the kidnapping that revealed shocking facts:

  • The Israeli government had informed members of the press around June 15th that it was aware that the students had been killed (1) but placed a gag order on that information: the government must thus have known where the bodies were.  The brutal “search” was merely cover for punishment of members of Hamas, the democratically-elected party of Palestinians throughout the occupied territories. The Israeli media played along with the pretext for the abuse.
  • The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were only called in 8-9 hours after the first call to report the kidnapping. One of the students placed a call to the police emergency hotline 10 minutes after they accepted a hitchhiking ride home, with the message that he was being kidnapped. The statement was followed by what sounded like several gunshots, groans and silence; the call lasted for 49 seconds. Police ignored the call. The teen’s father called police 5 hours later, at 3:30 am, to report his son missing. “Several hours” after that, after an exchange of 54 phone calls, the IDF and Shin Bet finally became involved. (2)
  • Despite possession of all of the evidence of the kidnappings and murders, the Israeli government has offered no evidence that indicates responsibility for the acts. Those with any direct connection to the phone calls or the finding of the bodies have remained unidentified. 

Prime Minister Netanyahu has used this event for huge political gain:

  • to create divisions within the new “unity government” of Fatah and Hamas,
  • to physically punish Hamas members and the cause of Palestinian resistance,
  • to get legislation passed through the Knesset to block the return of East Jerusalem to Palestinians (1),
  • to try to foment a third intifada to legitimate further attacks on Palestinians (1) and
  • to whip up such hatred of Palestinians that it has become dangerous for them to be seen on Israeli streets.

The Israeli government is continuing to harass and attack Palestinians until it supposedly finds the killers.

The two young Hebron men named as the accused have been missing since June 12th.

The uncovering of this deception should arouse world condemnation.

The Nazi-inspired Pogrom That Triggered Iraqi Jews’ “Escape to Israel”

by Naeim Giladi

The Link interviewed Naeim Giladi, a Jew from Iraq, for three hours on March 16, 1998, two days prior to his 69th birthday.

For nearly two other delightful hours, we were treated to a multi-course Arabic meal prepared by his wife Rachael, who is also Iraqi.

“It’s our Arab culture,” he said proudly.

THE JEWS OF IRAQ

By Naeim Giladi

My Story

Of course I thought I knew it all back then. I was young, idealistic, and more than willing to put my life at risk for my convictions.

It was 1947 and I wasn’t quite 18 when the Iraqi authorities caught me for smuggling young Iraqi Jews like myself out of Iraq, into Iran, and then on to the Promised Land of the soon-to-be established Israel.

Then, through the Jewish Agency, I was advised to go to al-Majdal (later renamed Ashkelon), an Arab town about 9 miles from Gaza, very close to the Mediterranean.

I was disillusioned at what I found in the Promised Land, disillusioned personally, disillusioned at the institutionalized racism, disillusioned at what I was beginning to learn about Zionism’s cruelties.

* Vladimir Jabotinsky, Prime Minister Netanyahu’s ideological progenitor, frankly admitted that such a transfer of populations could only be brought about by force.

British Leaders:
Britain always acted in its best colonial interests.

For that reason Foreign Minister Arthur Balfour sent his famous 1917 letter to Lord Rothschild in exchange for Zionist support in WW I.

During WW II the British were primarily concerned with keeping their client states in the Western camp, while Zionists were most concerned with the immigration of European Jews to Palestine, even if this meant cooperating with the Nazis.

(In my book I document numerous instances of such dealings by Ben Gurion and the Zionist leadership.)

El-Said then went to his back-up plan and began to create the conditions that would make the lives of Iraqi Jews so miserable they would leave for Israel.

Jewish government employees were fired from their jobs; Jewish merchants were denied import/export licenses; police began to arrest Jews for trivial reasons. Still the Jews did not leave in any great numbers.

Oppression And Land Theft Bring Shame To Zionists

The Holocaust and the Nakba: The Jew as the Arab | Palestine | Al Jazeera

Zionist Palestine not Nazi Europe

By 

How can Israelis close their eyes to the violent abuses inflicted by Israel’s military against the Palestinians?

They live in an artificial world of denial — bolstered by a mastery of communications and the dysfunctionality of Palestinian activists — in which abuses against Palestinians such as racism, land theft, physical violence and killings take place every day.

These actions do not even provoke a whimper from the majority of Israel’s Jews.

They have come to accept the fact that their country is one built on the oppression of others, while going to great lengths to separate its viciousness from that which fueled the Holocaust, which brought many of them into the initially welcoming arms of Palestine’s Christians and Muslims.

They may argue that not all Jews in Israel have turned their backs on righteousness. But that was also the response of populations in Germany and in Poland during the Second World War. Not everyone hated Jews, but very few spoke out until it was too late.

That is where Israelis are headed: Toward a fate in which one day they will have to answer for the atrocities that have taken place against Palestinians.

The newly announced investigation by the International Criminal Court in The Hague, which was itself founded on principles defined by the postwar trials of the Nazis, is just the beginning.

Every day, Palestinian lands are being confiscated for the sole purpose of expanding the existing and building new Jewish-only settlements.

The best farmlands are taken from Palestinians with impunity.

Reports frequently make it through the Israeli government-throttled mainstream news media about Palestinians who are attacked, brutalized and killed by Jewish settlers in the occupied West Bank.

And yet Israeli Jews still manage to go about their business in places like West Jerusalem, where they openly refer to the big houses built using Jerusalem stone as “Arab homes.”

There is absolutely no shame, especially as Israeli Jews lead the campaign to recover land and property stolen from them during the Holocaust.

As they do so, land and property is being stolen from the Palestinians in their name. And their major institutions don’t seem to care.

For Palestinians, March is a special month, during which they commemorate “Land Day.”

This commemoration reflects on when — March 30, 1976 — the Israeli government passed a law allowing the expropriation of lands from non-Jews.

Protests by Palestinian citizens of Israel raged from Nazareth to the Negev.

It was the first time that Israel’s non-Jewish population had stood up to the racism on which Israel is based.

B’Tselem, an organization of Israelis of all backgrounds who embrace human rights, this month released a scathing report on how extensive the theft of land is.

It argues: “The fact that the West Bank has not been formally annexed does not stop Israel from treating it as if it were its own territory, particularly when it comes to the massive resources Israel invests in developing settlements and establishing infrastructure to serve their residents.”

The report adds: “This policy has enabled the establishment of more than 280 settlements and outposts now populated by more than 440,000 Israeli citizens (excluding East Jerusalem).

Thanks to this policy, more than 2 million dunams of Palestinian land have been stolen, by official and unofficial means.

The West Bank is crisscrossed with roads linking the settlements to one another and to Israel’s sovereign territory, west of the Green Line; and the area is dotted with Israeli industrial zones.”

These industrial areas produce stolen products that are then disguised and sold to markets around the world — a process that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement seeks to expose.

Israel may be able to change the face of the West Bank, just as it has meticulously erased much of the Arab identity from areas throughout Israel, but it cannot erase the truth, which will always stand as a testament to its cruelty.

Israelis are accountable for the horrors from their government.

Israel is a World Zionist Occupied Nation

Israelis need to wake up and learn the facts about their Khazarian blood heritage and the fact that the latest peer-reviewed Johns Hopkins genetic study shows that: about 97.5% have absolutely no ancient Hebrew blood at all, are not Semites, their Khazarian ancestors converted to a perverted form of Judaism under King Bulan in about 750 AD, and thus they have no ancient right to any of Palestinian land; while 80%+ of the Palestinians are true Semites because they carry ancient Hebrew Blood and these Semites do have an ancestral right to all of Palestine.

by Preston James and Mike Harris

The new nation-state of Israel was illegally set up after WWII by World Zionists who hijacked it in 1815. 

The Rothschild World Zionist Money-changers were able to hijack by deploying a very crafty covert op using the fake news that Napoleon had won at Waterloo, when he was actually defeated.

This fake news sent by carrier pigeon was released early before true reports were received of Napoleon’s defeat.

This allowed Nathan Rothschild to collapse the British markets and buy up and gain control of most business and banking at a fraction of their value.

The stated reason these British based World Zionist Kingpins seized Palestinian lands illegally and gave it to these Judaics was to compensate for the Nazi Work Camps and persecution of Judaics in Europe.

Giving the Judaics back their falsely claimed homeland in Palestine was proposed as an equitable compensation for these persecuted Judaics, almost all of whom were actually Khazarians in the first place.

This whole strategy was, of course, conceived of and actuated by the World Zionists.

The real reasons these World Zionists mandated a small part of Palestine to be seized and gifted to these displaced European Khazarians turned out to be something far more sinister than helping their so-called fellow “displaced, persecuted and victimized” Judaics.

The roundup and placement of Judaics in Work Camps by Nazis provided a golden opportunity for the World Zionists (WZs) to mind-kontrol these displaced Khazarian Judaics into falsely believing they deserved to have Palestine.

The false-narrative presented to do this was that “this is where you came from in the first place”.

This claim turns out to be one of the biggest lies ever told and has caused the genocide and mass suffering of millions of Palestinians who have had their ancestral lands stolen from them by World Zionists and “given” to Khazarian to call their own Biblical land.

And we know now that this claim was an obvious falsity because recent peer-reviewed Johns Hopkins genetic research has shown that 97.5% of these Judaics living in Israel actually have no ancient Hebrew Blood at all, none.

This false claim that these persecuted European Judaics of WWII had ancient ancestral rights to Palestine was, of course, a stupendous Big Lie.

It was a very effective means to mind-kontrol these displaced Khazarians, fool them, and to use them to create a none-existent new race called “Jews”.

This false claim was an effective means to Mind-kontrol Khazarian Judaics whose bloodlines originated in King Bulan’s Khazaria and transformed them into a new protected race called “Jews”.

And this new racial designation “Jew” could be used to make them believe they were a special race, God’s chosen ones, the ancient Hebrews when all they shared was a conversion to Judaism not based on any ancient genetic bloodlines.

This World Zionist “con job” of the new racial designation “Jew” was very effective in Mind-kontrolling these Khazarians into believing that they deserved special protection for all future time from any criticism.

The World Zionists (WZs) successfully convinced these persecuted Khazarians that they had already suffered as a people far too much in WWII.

So when they would be later used as highly placed cutouts and tools for the World Zionists to fulfill their secret evil NWO agenda to destroy all societies, no criticism would be allowed.

And the WZs would make sure that the top positions in government and very lucrative business opportunities would be offered to them first as members of this new artificial racial tribe that Khazarian King Bulan had labeled as “Jews”.

Certain selected leaders of this new racial tribe would thus become handsomely rewarded as they became initiated into the secret Babylonian Talmudic system of Money-Magick and Baal worship.

The concept Antisemitism as sophisticated WZ Mind-kontrol and the perfect defense against any criticism from “Goyim”.

Thus the WZs created the concept “Antisemitism” was to shield these Khazarians who now called themselves “Jews” from any criticism or prosecution for any of their crimes, tyranny or oppression of others such as continued land theft of Palestinian land, blockading and genocide of Palestinians and the mass-murder and suffering of 9-11-01 and all their wars.

Of course, this defense has now been shown to be nonsense for Judaics since almost all are Khazarians. But this has been claimed as Judaics’ main defense for Israel tyranny and genocide of Palestinians and theft of their land.

Anyone who has studied mind-kontrol technology in detail knows that in classic MK-Ultra (satanic or occult Babylonian Talmudic) the first step in to render the subject in a state of shock using major blood trauma, severe suffering with no escape.

This step places subjects in a very suggestible state so they will easily be conditioned by the master controller. This process can be done to large groups at once  by any government or rogue group.

They are East Europeans and Russians. Not a Semitic drop of blood between them.

The photo of  Russian-born David Ben Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister and defense minister, and his wife is from the first Israel Defense Forces parade in July 1948.

Mind-kontrol is the reason of course that the False Flag of 9-11-01 was used by World Zionists to place the American People in a state of Blood Shock.

This made them intensely suggestible and ready to be mass hypnotized by the USG that a foreign war on Terror in the Mideast being secretly waged for WZs costing Trillions of US Dollars and thousands of American soldiers’ lives and futures was necessary.

Of course, all such mass hypnosis is always predicated on a Big Lies, false-narratives, and government propaganda.

No matter how big the lie, the American masses can be effectively mind-kontrolled to believe them if they are repeatedly broadcast and published by all of the “big six” Major Mass Media which actually serve as WZ mouthpieces.

For 9-11-01, the World Zionist-controlled Major Mass Media quickly declared that Osama bin Laden did it on behalf of Afghanistan and unless we declared an international war on terror and stopped it over there in the Mideast at its origin, much more and even worse attacks from these crazy Islamics were sure to come to America.

How post-WW2 Israel was created using lands stolen from Palestinians.

The British Rothschilds arranged for the Balfour Declaration and later moved these European Judaics (most actually were Khazarians) to a small part of Palestine that England illegally seized from Palestinians.

The Judaics were supposed to stay in a small designated land area, but quickly formed terrorists groups to  murder Palestinians and steal more land. The British peace-keepers were blown up in their hotel and driven out by these Judaic terror groups.

The World Zionist leaders that ran this new illegal nation-state comprised of stolen Palestinian ancestral lands name it “Israel” like the ancient 12 tribes of Hebrews were called.

This was done to keep these Khazarian settlers fooled into believing this Big Lie that they were of ancient Hebrew Blood and were a racially pure nation-state. Note that in the Torah Israel referred to the Twelve Hebrew Tribes as Israel, not a country.

The World Zionists who are actually secret followers of Babylonian Talmudism are best defined as Satanists and occult masters of the Black Magick, Money Magick, and the Black Arts of ancient Babylon.

These Babylonian Talmudics (BTs) are a very crafty bunch and some have claimed to be anointed by Satan who they claim is the ruler of this world and is now rising to dethrone and become God Almighty himself.

Other BT’s believe that Satan (Lucifer) actually is God Almighty now and empowers those that are chosen by him, and willing to give him their souls in exchange for extreme power, riches, and status and are also willing to break all societal norms laws when necessary to serve Satan’s will.

The term “Jew” was actually first used in Khazaria in about 750 AD after King Bulan selected Judaism as Khazaria’s national religion.

Before that those that were believers in Judaism in Palestine were called Hebrews. After 750, most Hebrews were seduced into calling themselves “Jews” along with the much larger number of Khazarians (aka Ashkenazis). It is important to note that the Tribe of Judah was only one of the Twelve Hebrew Tribes and Khazarians have no blood relation to any of these tribes including the Tribe of Judah.

The history of the Hebrew Tribes after they gained their Promised Land is complex. Basically the Ten Tribes split from two tribes.

Some true Hebrew (non-Khazarian) Torah scholars believe that God Almighty divorced himself from the Twelve Hebrew Tribes and removed his gift of the promised land to them for their continued unrepentant idolatry.

Most of these true Hebrew Torah scholars do not believe that the new nation of Israel has any right to exist in Palestine and blame it all on WZs for setting this great lie up in the first place.

These particular Hebrew Torah scholars are dead set against World Zionism and all its evil works.

World Zionists (BTs) set up various rules to define this new artificial race (“Jew”) that they created in Khazaria in 750 AD and falsely claimed it came from ancient Hebrew Bloodlines. BTs defined what a real “Jew” was, including one must have a “Jewish” mother. It didn’t matter if the father was Jewish. This was done to protect any Jewish philandering males from blow-back due to fathering an illegitimate child from a Goyim woman.

The WZs convinced (mind-kontrolled) these displaced European Judaics of WWII that they were from ancient Hebrew Bloodlines when they were actually from Khazarian bloodlines from ancient Khazaria.

Khazarians have sometimes been called Askenazis. This was the first step in creating this new artificial race of Jews and a new racially pure nation based on this Big Lie.

Khazarian King Bulan ordered his people to accept his choice of new national religion which was actually a perverted form of Judaism based on Babylonian Talmudism in about 750 AD.

Fortunately, most Khazarians are secular and do not practice the Babylonian Talmudism that characterized the form of Judaism King Bulan accepted and practiced.

The WZs desired to set up Israel as a nation of Fake Hebrews (Revelation 2:9 and 3:9) to serve as their key action-agents and also as a world sanctuary and base of operations for the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (RKM).

The mass deaths of Judaics in WWII and the Nazi Work Camps was then used by the WZs (BTs) to create this new mass role of victim for Judaics. Judaics were thus transformed forever into a special class of the persecuted that the whole world must defer to and protect forever.

“Never Again” became the Judaic motto. No criticism in any form would be allowed and this would be labeled as a new social offense called “Antisemitism”. This new worldwide standard for protecting this new synthetically created racial tribe of “Jews” from any criticism or further persecution became law in many nations, especially in Canada and Europe due to WZ money power and purchased political influence.

The bottom line to all this is that the WZ creation of this synthetic new Tribal race called “Jews” provided great cover for WZs who were committed to: secretly practicing (without discovery) Babylonian Talmudism (Satanism) with child and human sacrifice; anti-human pernicious usury-based Money-Magick; and destroying every society on Planet Earth in order to create their Satanic NWO system.

The problem is that since 97.5% of these Judaics living in Israel are Khazarian blood (not Hebrew blood) like most living in America.

It’s a sad fact that the WZs who created private Fiat pernicious usury central banking has appointed Khazarians as well paid cutouts to sell their nations out and run these WZ central banking systems.

These Cutouts are usually Khazarians who wrongly refer to themselves as Jews.

To prevent any discussion or mass protests against the WZ hijacking and Bankster abuse of America by Khazarian Cutouts, Antisemitism has been fully utilized.

Although any reasonable person knows that not all Khazarians are bad people, but certainly the evidence now available suggests that all WZs who are BTs are Satanists and by definition, anti-society, anti-human, sociopathic and pro-mass-death for their own gain.

And that all Khazarians who serve as highly paid WZ Cutouts are habitual violators of the US Constitution and numerous US Law including RICO which are major felonies.

The Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (RKM) is the core group of Babylonian Talmudics running this new and illegal racist nation of Israel.

The RKM is also known as the World Money Changers and runs the Satanic Pedophile Network. They are also the World Zionists.

Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (RKM) Money Power provides the muscle for World Zionism.

Creating and controlling most of the world’s money has provided a lot of continuing power and that is what these World Zionist do by issuing debt-notes no longer backed by any real commodities, gold or silver.

These WZ/BT World Moneychangers lend these debt notes (which are required by law to be accepted as “legal tender”) to the masses and charge pernicious usury (illegal under the Torah Law itself).

Obviously money should be owned by any nations own citizens in the first place, should be real, and no interest should be charged for using it, especially for these fake money debt-notes.

Obviously this RKM money-power Fiat central private banking system is the biggest scam in history.

It has enabled the World Zionists to infiltrate and hijack many nations such as America and then use them to stage wars to make massive profits.

WZ money power is now in the process of being displaced by nations grouping together such as the BRICS.

It makes take several years or it makes happen anytime overnight, but the RKM private Fiat central Banking system and the US Petrodollar, its illegitimate child, are going down for the count.

The post-WWII creation of the nation-state of Israel was based on a colossal lie and major land theft and genocide against the Palestinian People.

Yes, the post-WWII nation-state of Israel was created on one of the greatest lies ever told and is nothing more than high-level land theft by the world’s largest organized crime Syndicate, the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (RKM).

And this RKM are hardcore World Zionists who take their orders from a small secret satanic group the top Babylonian Talmudics (BTs).

Top BTs have claimed to be directly powered by pure satanic and demonic powers and each has their own personal demon consigliere appear to them if they continue to promote and cause enough blood sacrifice and human suffering.

This claim that Judaics had an ancestral right to Palestine due to their genetics was, of course, a monstrous lie.

We now know for certain the vast majority (over 90%) these persecuted Judaics that survived this WWII European persecution carried no ancient Hebrew blood at all and were Khazarians (sometimes called Ashkenazim) from the area that is now called the Ukraine.

Most of these World Zionists, aka the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia, carry no Hebrew Blood either and typically answer to the top Old Black European nobility Families.

These Old Black European families that started and run World Zionism carry inter-generational satanism and practice secret occult black magick, trauma-based mind-kontrol, and numerous secret black arts.

World Zionists used the RKM to hijack America in 1913.

The World Zionists used the RKM to infiltrate and hijack America in 1913 by bribing members of the US Congress and the President to pass the illegal, clearly unconstitutional Federal Reserve Act in 1913.

Once these RKM had gained control over the creation and distribution of US money with no oversight or auditing ever, they could issue and print all the money they wanted as unbacked debt-notes and buy up, bribe or human compromise almost every single member of Congress and even most presidents.

Those they couldn’t they isolated, drove out of the office or if they deemed necessary arranged for their murder.

What have been the results of the hijacking of America by the World Zionists (WZs) in 1913 by the illegal and unconstitutional passage of the RKM’s Federal Reserve Act?

America became another World Zionist occupied nation-state just like England, France, Post WWII Germany, and so many others.

Once the WZs had control over the US Congress then they began to use America as their military and economic enforcer all over the world for their corporate partners.

This was explicated by General Smedley Butler in his famous book, War is a Racket. General Butler was the most decorated US Marine ever and was awarded two Medals of Honor for bravery in combat.

The sad secret is that most of the world central banks have been controlled by the WZs through their action-agent Cutouts the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (RKM). Any nation-state which tried to eject the RKM central banks or the US Petro Dollar becomes an immediate target for civil war, revolution or destruction by war using completely fabricated fake reasons.

This is done by deploying the Military enforcers which include the US Military, NATO members militaries and private mercenary armies like the CIA’s and many others including ISIS, Daesh, el Nusra, etc.

Israel become the WZ organized crime central.

Israel has become the world capital of the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (RKM) only because it has been mandated by the World Zionists. This has transformed Israel into the world capital for sexual perversion, kidnapping for sex trafficking, murder for organ trafficking, and high-level financial crimes.

Recently the RKM has been ripping off their own fellow Israelis and many Israelis have had enough. Various Israel citizen groups are now working to get Netanyahu out of the office and to see that their laws for financial crimes are enforced.

There is a now a big split forming in Israeli politics. A significant number of Israelis are getting fed up with the corruption and with the persecution of Palestinians as well as and the continuing theft of more and more of their land.

Foreign based espionage groups in America have been deployed by the WZs.

All these foreign-based espionage groups in America that are now trying to create chaos like the ADL and SPLC are pretending to support minorities.  And they have been set up, funded and deployed by the WZs through Cutouts and Mind-kontrolled stooges.

They do this in order to create a cover for themselves because once the average American finds out what they are doing to undermine America, they will demand that they become registered as foreign agents and even prosecuted under existing espionage laws.

When these Khazarians pretend to care for (and represent minorities) and create false-narratives of bigotry, persecution and racism, this provides a great hiding place for these Khazarians.

Conclusion.

Most of the Judaics in America and Israel who call themselves “Jewish” are actually Khazarians and carry no Hebrew Blood at all. Therefore they are not real Semites compared to 80%+ of the Palestinians that do actually carry ancient Hebrew blood and are true Semites.

This hard reality means that these Khazarians pretending to be Hebrews can no longer legitimately plead Antisemitism when folks criticize them for their espionage against America.

The best antidote to the very crafty mind-kontrol of the World Zionists that is based on the lie that Khazarians are from ancient Hebrew blood is a frank declaration of the truth that 97.5% of Israelis who call themselves Jewish actually have no Hebrew blood at all.

Truth is the best immunization against the massive satanic two-faced lies of the WZs and their chief action agents the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (RKM). And we now know that the RKM is the world’s largest organized crime syndicate because it is fully empowered by the World Zionist Banksters who are Babylonian Talmudics.

Israelis have been deeply mind-kontrolled by the World Zionists to believe a very big lie that they carry ancient Hebrew Blood and have an ancestral right to Palestine when they have none. They have been set up to create conflict in the Mideast to prime the war machine pump for vast RKM Bankster profits.

But insiders know that unless Israelis wake up and began to understand how the WZs have played them, they will eventually be over-run by the rest of the world, one way or another. Israelis have been highly rewarded with America taxpayer dollars by the WZs for doing their will, but they, in reality, are disposable Cutouts, just the way many of their relatives were who were kidnapped and placed in Nazi work camps upon the orders of the WZs who set up both Nazism and Communism in the first place.

Just for the records, I am not an Anti-Semite. I love the Palestinians people and other true Semites. Actually I am not even anti-Khazarian but I am against how they have been mind-kontrolled and used by World Zionists to serve as Cutouts and do their dirty work. I am not even anti-Jew, but I think they need to be exposed for being mind-kontrolled Khazarians.

Sadly most Jews do not even know that they are actually of Khazarian bloodlines which are a combination of Turk and Mongol whose true ancestors converted to Judaism in Khazaria under King Bulan.

As a tribe, those calling themselves Jews have been kicked out of over 100 nations for some of the unsocial acts of their leaders who were empowered by RKM Fiat central Banking and have now been exposed for being responsible for the attack on America on 9-11-01.

Thus many who have learned of how some top Khazarians willingly did the dirty work for the WZs, now have an intense dislike for “Jews” in general. The Jewish leaders (PNACers, top NeoCons, Israeli-America “Israeli-first” Dual Citizens) attempt to ward off this criticism and blame by claiming it is nothing but Antisemitism.

Actually, to be accurate, this anger and desire for justice to be leveled against the perps who did 9-11-01 could be called anti-Khazarianism and is well justified for all the illegal unconstitutional wars and associated mass-death, woundings, disabilities and mass-suffering it has brought about.

Its a fact that strong factions deep inside the Secret Shadow Government (SSG), the Secret Space War Program (SSWP), and the Pentagon now understand that it was the WZs, the Khazarian, the Dual Citizens and their lackeys who did 9-11-01.

This has produced a deep and growing split between true American Patriots and Khazarians in power and these Khazarians are being pushed aside and losing their power by the day.

The whole world is now organizing together to displace the World Zionists and their Khazarians Cutouts out of power.

It will take some time, but now that so many inside the SSG, the SSWP and the Pentagon know the truth that 9-11-01 was actually an attack on America by the World Zionists, they are beginning to take covert actions against the WZs and their Khazarian Cutouts and their lackeys.

Israelis need to wake up and learn the facts about their Khazarian blood heritage and the fact that the latest peer-reviewed Johns Hopkins genetic study shows that: about 97.5% have absolutely no ancient Hebrew blood at all, are not Semites, their Khazarian ancestors converted to a perverted form of Judaism under King Bulan in about 750 AD, and thus they have no ancient right to any of Palestinian land; while 80%+ of the Palestinians are true Semites because they carry ancient Hebrew Blood and these Semites do have an ancestral right to all of Palestine.

American Jews need to wake up soon too before they allow the WZ to destroy America, the goose that is laying their golden eggs of very high positions and high pay because they are part of the new synthetic tribe of  “Jews” and have been used by WZs as their disposal Cutouts. When the great Federal Reserve System reaches its limits like any Ponzi scheme always done (and this may be quite soon), the Cutouts will always receive the blame while the WZ occult masters slip away.

Every day, more and more Americans and folks around the world are learning that the WZs used Khazarians to run the attack on America on 9-11-01 to motivate Americans to deploy their soldiers as disposable cannon fodder for the WZ’s Mideast wars of aggression, acquisition, and profit. And that these wars have produced millions of dead, wounded, disabled and displaced civilians.

ISIS et all, the private Israeli/CIA/Saudi mercenary army, has now been defeated by the Syrian military and Russian precision air power.

It won’t be long now until most nations of the world, especially Mideast nations gang up, Lebanize and Balkanize Israel. At that point, it sure seems that the USA will be too weak economically to defend Israel for the WZs.

And as oil prices continue to fall, Saudi Arabia’s days serving as a primary war and terror financing tool for the WZs are now limited.

The promising news is that there is now a growing number of actual Torah Jews, True Hebrews, and even a growing number of Khazarians around the world that understand Zionism and all the evil it produces. These folks now want to give the Israeli settlements back to the Palestinians, establish Palestine as a nation and push the crazy Likudists out of power in Israel.

A surprising number of young college-aged Khazarians actually support the Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement (BDS) against Israel.

Every day more and more folks understand the evil that these WZ Babylonian Talmudic Baal worshiping Satanist do and have been getting away with.

Full exposure of all the evil done by these Satan worshiping WZs is now a certainty and no longer just a wish, thanks to the Internet, the World’s New Gutenberg Press.

So when you hear the term “Jew” used, think Khazarian synthetic racial tribe that is actually comprised of Khazarian converts to Judaism. Think Turk and Mongol bloodlines and no direct ancestry to ancient Hebrews or Palestine. And remember that about 97.5% of these folks that call themselves Jewish carry no ancient Hebrew blood at all and are thus not Semites.

And do not fall for their artificially created defense of Antisemitism for any criticism since it only applies to true Semites and not them, folks like the Palestinians and small remnants of the original Twelve Hebrew Tribes which were scattered around the world after diaspora with most interbreeding with other bloodlines.

It is important for Khazarians to realize they have been mind-kontrolled by the WZs and many of their relatives suffered persecution in WWII at the direction of the WZs who made money off the work camps where their relatives manufactured war materials for the Nazis.

When Israel becomes blamed for 9-11-01 and the Khazarian staffed Federal Reserve System fails, Khazarians will likely be blamed and persecuted once again unless they wake up now. And as always, the WZs slip away and their highly paid Khazarian Cutouts get blamed.

If Even Ken Roth Can’t Criticize Israel, No One Can

The Palsbara Buster: Zionists and "Criticism" : IsraelPalestine

They work on each and every US  state

BRANKO MARCETIC

Ken Roth, the ex-head of Human Rights Watch, recently had his hiring at Harvard vetoed by administrators.

Because when it comes to criticism of Israeli apartheid, even a notorious friend of the powerful like Roth can’t get a pass from the establishment.

In American politics, elections come and go, but some things stay the same: criticizing Israel remains the ultimate taboo.

As yet further evidence, take what recently happened to former Human Rights Watch head Kenneth Roth.

After resigning from the organization last April, the Nation reported last week, Roth was offered a fellowship at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School.

Someone with a nearly three-decade-long tenure leading a prestigious human rights organization joining an Ivy League human rights research center — what could possibly be controversial about that?

Israel labels Palestinian human rights groups as terrorist organizations

Israel, US vote against UN funds for ‘antisemitic’ Conference

Israel labels Amnesty International ‘anti-Semitic’ over ‘apartheid’ report

The fact that Roth and his organization had the temerity to treat Israel like every other repressive, rights-violating government they scrutinized, it turned out.

Roth was never explicitly told why, after a round of interviews and being sent a formal proposal to join, the Kennedy School’s dean Douglas Elmendorf decided not to approve his hiring, reportedly an unprecedented situation for the Carr Center.

But Elmendorf did tell Kathryn Sikkink, a high-profile human rights professor associated with the center, who relayed to the Nation on the record that Elmendorf claimed Human Rights Watch had an “anti-Israel bias” and that Roth’s tweets about the country’s conduct were a problem.

As the author of the Nation report, Michael Massing, points out, the charges defy credulity.

Israel and its treatment of the Palestinians is just one of the many, many instances of human rights abuses around the world that Human Rights Watch regularly documented under Roth, which included abuses by Palestinian groups.

And its characterization of Israel’s abuses has not been materially different from other vaunted human rights organizations like Amnesty International, whose alumni the Kennedy School has never had a problem hosting before.

As for Roth’s Twitter feed, it’s presumably his repeated references to Israeli apartheid that drew the ire of whoever intimidated Elmendorf into taking this step.

Yet Roth was, at different times, quoting everyone from the late archbishop Desmond Tutu to the UN special rapporteur for Palestinian human rights to Israel’s own former attorney general in using that word.

Is one of the leading academic human rights institutions seriously accusing the UN and a former Israeli official of being biased against Israel?

As Katie Halper pointed out last year, that Israel is an apartheid state on account of its treatment of the Palestinians is a view that has been expressed by Amnesty, Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem, and prominent Israeli political leaders, including a former education minister, a former environment minister, and even two former prime ministers, to name a few.

Halper, by the way, was abruptly fired for daring to point this out.

Roth is just the latest to join the long list of people who have faced censure at the hands of prominent institutions for criticizing Israel.

In recent times that list has included, besides Halper, Current Affairs editor Nathan Robinson, who was fired from the Guardian for an offhand joke critical of Israel, Marc Lamont Hill who was fired from CNN for uttering a slogan of Palestinian liberation, and a long list of academics like Steven Salaita who have had their careers ruined for criticizing Israel’s conduct.

What’s novel here are Roth’s impeccable establishment credentials. Roth was dubbed the “godfather” of the human rights movement in a praiseful New York Times tribute to his career last year, and he usually tends to voice conventional wisdom that fits comfortably within the narrow spectrum of Washington foreign policy establishment discourse.

He has expressed the view that “the biggest threat to human rights is China” and that “the US government remains the most powerful proponent of human rights.”

He’s backed everything from the coup in Bolivia to regime change in Libya while keeping mum about the US-backed Saudi war on Yemen, and he and Human Rights Watch have been repeatedly criticized for their closeness to the US political and corporate establishment, right down to a well-documented revolving door for alumni of the US state department and even CIA.

At one point, Roth signed an agreement with a Saudi real estate magnate agreeing to take his money as long as it wasn’t used for LGBTQ advocacy in the Middle East.

The point here isn’t to run down Roth. It is that, if someone with this record and connections can’t make reasonable, factually accurate criticisms of Israeli policy, then who can?

This isn’t so much a problem of a distorted political climate surrounding Israel as it is of power and money.

As Massing points out, it’s the Kennedy School’s own revolving door between government officials, like former CIA director Michael Morell and disgraced former Iraq and Afghanistan commander David Petraeus, and its reliance on funding from pro-Israel donors — including Les Wexner, the oddly generous friend and benefactor of late child-sex-trafficker-for-the-elite Jeffrey Epstein — that ultimately made Roth persona non grata at the Carr Center.

Predictably, the usual, cynical voices are already declaring this piece of reporting an antisemitic “conspiracy theory.”

It’s in the interests of even the most establishment-friendly liberals to push back on all of this, beyond the fact that such cynical abuse of that accusation empowers actual antisemites by cheapening it.

Such accusations against the Left have been intensely weaponized both in the United States and, to an even more extreme extent, across the pond in the UK, where they have been used to delegitimize and even purge the Left from political power, including Jewish activists.

Liberal voices were silent or even joined in on this shameful display.

But the Roth episode shows that it’s only a matter of time before that kind of thing creeps closer to the political center.

And when that happens, it undermines everyone’s ability to have a rational debate about foreign policy and human rights.

How Israel Systematically Hides Evidence of 1948 Expulsion of Arabs

5 Jul 2019 – Since early last decade, Defense Ministry teams have scoured local archives and removed troves of historic documents to conceal proof of the Nakba.

Four years ago, historian Tamar Novick was jolted by a document she found in the file of Yosef Vashitz, from the Arab Department of the left-wing Mapam Party, in the Yad Yaari archive at Givat Haviva.

The document, which seemed to describe events that took place during the 1948 war, began:

“Safsaf [former Palestinian village near Safed] – 52 men were caught, tied them to one another, dug a pit and shot them. 10 were still twitching.

Women came, begged for mercy. Found bodies of 6 elderly men. There were 61 bodies. 3 cases of rape, one east of from Safed, girl of 14, 4 men shot and killed. From one they cut off his fingers with a knife to take the ring.”

The writer goes on to describe additional massacres, looting and abuse perpetrated by Israeli forces in Israel’s War of Independence.

“There’s no name on the document and it’s not clear who’s behind it,” Dr. Novick tells Haaretz.

“It also breaks off in the middle. I found it very disturbing.

I knew that finding a document like this made me responsible for clarifying what happened.”

The Upper Galilee village of Safsaf was captured by the Israel Defense Forces in Operation Hiram toward the end of 1948.

Safsaf-Safad: Zionist gangs attacking Safsaf village just before the massacre(Oct 31st 1948

Moshav Safsufa was established on its ruins.

Allegations were made over the years that the Seventh Brigade committed war crimes in the village.

Those charges are supported by the document Novick found, which was not previously known to scholars.

It could also constitute additional evidence that the Israeli top brass knew about what was going on in real time.

Novick decided to consult with other historians about the document.

 Benny Morris, whose books are basic texts in the study of the Nakba – the “calamity,” as the Palestinians refer to the mass emigration of Arabs from the country during the 1948 war – told her that he, too, had come across similar documentation in the past.

He was referring to notes made by Mapam Central Committee member Aharon Cohen on the basis of a briefing given in November 1948 by Israel Galili, the former chief of staff of the Haganah militia, which became the IDF.

Cohen’s notes in this instance, which Morris published, stated: “Safsaf 52 men tied with a rope.

Dropped into a pit and shot. 10 were killed. Women pleaded for mercy. [There were] 3 cases of rape. Caught and released.

A girl of 14 was raped. Another 4 were killed. Rings of knives.”

Morris’ footnote (in his seminal “The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem, 1947-1949”) states that this document was also found in the Yad Yaari Archive.

But when Novick returned to examine the document, she was surprised to discover that it was no longer there.

“At first I thought that maybe Morris hadn’t been accurate in his footnote, that perhaps he had made a mistake,” Novick recalls.

“It took me time to consider the possibility that the document had simply disappeared.”

When she asked those in charge where the document was, she was told that it had been placed behind lock and key at Yad Yaari – by order of the Ministry of Defense.

Since the start of the last decade, Defense Ministry teams have been scouring Israel’s archives and removing historic documents.

But it’s not just papers relating to Israel’s nuclear project or to the country’s foreign relations that are being transferred to vaults: Hundreds of documents have been concealed as part of a systematic effort to hide evidence of the Nakba.

The phenomenon was first detected by the Akevot Institute for Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Research.

According to a report drawn up by the institute, the operation is being spearheaded by Malmab, the Defense Ministry’s secretive security department (the name is a Hebrew acronym for “director of security of the defense establishment”), whose activities and budget are classified.

The report asserts that Malmab removed historical documentation illegally and with no authority, and at least in some cases has sealed documents that had previously been cleared for publication by the military censor.

Some of the documents that were placed in vaults had already been published.

An investigative report by Haaretz found that Malmab has concealed testimony from IDF generals about the killing of civilians and the demolition of villages, as well as documentation of the expulsion of Bedouin during the first decade of statehood.

Conversations conducted by Haaretz with directors of public and private archives alike revealed that staff of the security department had treated the archives as their property, in some cases threatening the directors themselves.

Yehiel Horev, who headed Malmab for two decades, until 2007, acknowledged to Haaretz that he launched the project, which is still ongoing.

He maintains that it makes sense to conceal the events of 1948, because uncovering them could generate unrest among the country’s Arab population.

Asked what the point is of removing documents that have already been published, he explained that the objective is to undermine the credibility of studies about the history of the refugee problem.

In Horev’s view, an allegation made by a researcher that’s backed up by an original document is not the same as an allegation that cannot be proved or refuted.

The document Novick was looking for might have reinforced Morris’ work.

During the investigation, Haaretz was in fact able to find the Aharon Cohen memo, which sums up a meeting of Mapam’s Political Committee on the subject of massacres and expulsions in 1948.

Participants in the meeting called for cooperation with a commission of inquiry that would investigate the events.

One case the committee discussed concerned “grave actions” carried out in the village of Al-Dawayima, east of Kiryat Gat.

One participant mentioned the then-disbanded Lehi underground militia in this connection.

Acts of looting were also reported: “Lod and Ramle, Be’er Sheva, there isn’t [an Arab] store that hasn’t been broken into.

9th Brigade says 7, 7th Brigade says 8.”

“The party,” the document states near the end, “is against expulsion if there is no military necessity for it.

There are different approaches concerning the evaluation of necessity.

And further clarification is best.

What happened in Galilee – those are Nazi acts!

Every one of our members must report what he knows.”

The Israeli version

One of the most fascinating documents about the origin of the Palestinian refugee problem was written by an officer in Shai, the precursor to the Shin Bet security service.

It discusses why the country was emptied of so many of its Arab inhabitants, dwelling on the circumstances of each village.

Compiled in late June 1948, it was titled “The Emigration of the Arabs of Palestine.”

This document was the basis for an article that Benny Morris published in 1986.

After the article appeared, the document was removed from the archive and rendered inaccessible to researchers.

Years later, the Malmab team reexamined the document, and ordered that it remain classified.

They could not have known that a few years later researchers from Akevot would find a copy of the text and run it past the military censors – who authorized its publication unconditionally.

Now, after years of concealment, the gist of the document is being revealed here.

The 25-page document begins with an introduction that unabashedly approves of the evacuation of the Arab villages.

According to the author, the month of April “excelled in an increase of emigration,” while May “was blessed with the evacuation of maximum places.”

The report then addresses “the causes of the Arab emigration.”

According to the Israeli narrative that was disseminated over the years, responsibility for the exodus from Israel rests with Arab politicians who encouraged the population to leave.

However, according to the document, 70 percent of the Arabs left as a result of Jewish military operations.

The unnamed author of the text ranks the reasons for the Arabs’ departure in order of importance.

The first reason: “Direct Jewish acts of hostility against Arab places of settlement.”

The second reason was the impact of those actions on neighboring villages.

Third in importance came “operations by the breakaways,” namely the Irgun and Lehi undergrounds.

The fourth reason for the Arab exodus was orders issued by Arab institutions and “gangs” (as the document refers to all Arab fighting groups); fifth was “Jewish ‘whispering operations’ to induce the Arab inhabitants to flee”; and the sixth factor was “evacuation ultimatums.”

The author asserts that, “without a doubt, the hostile operations were the main cause of the movement of the population.”

In addition, “Loudspeakers in the Arabic language proved their effectiveness on the occasions when they were utilized properly.”

As for Irgun and Lehi operations, the report observes that “many in the villages of central Galilee started to flee following the abduction of the notables of Sheikh Muwannis [a village north of Tel Aviv].

The Arab learned that it is not enough to forge an agreement with the Haganah and that there are other Jews [i.e., the breakaway militias] to beware of.”

The author notes that ultimatums to leave were especially employed in central Galilee, less so in the Mount Gilboa region.

“Naturally, the act of this ultimatum, like the effect of the ‘friendly advice,’ came after a certain preparing of the ground by means of hostile actions in the area.”

An appendix to the document describes the specific causes of the exodus from each of scores of Arab locales: Ein Zeitun – “our destruction of the village”; Qeitiya – “harassment, threat of action”; Almaniya – “our action, many killed”; Tira – “friendly Jewish advice”; Al’Amarir – “after robbery and murder carried out by the breakaways”; Sumsum – “our ultimatum”; Bir Salim – “attack on the orphanage”; and Zarnuga – “conquest and expulsion.”

Short fuse

In the early 2000s, the Yitzhak Rabin Center conducted a series of interviews with former public and military figures as part of a project to document their activity in the service of the state.

The long arm of Malmab seized on these interviews, too. Haaretz, which obtained the original texts of several of the interviews, compared them to the versions that are now available to the public, after large swaths of them were declared classified.

These included, for example, sections of the testimony of Brig. Gen. (res.) Aryeh Shalev about the expulsion across the border of the residents of a village he called “Sabra.”

Later in the interview, the following sentences were deleted: “There was a very serious problem in the valley.

There were refugees who wanted to return to the valley, to the Triangle [a concentration of Arab towns and villages in eastern Israel].

We expelled them. I met with them to persuade them not to want that. I have papers about it.”

In another case, Malmab decided to conceal the following segment from an interview that historian Boaz Lev Tov conducted with Maj. Gen. (res.) Elad Peled:

Lev Tov: “We’re talking about a population – women and children?”

Peled: “All, all. Yes.”

Lev Tov: “Don’t you distinguish between them?”

Peled: “The problem is very simple. The war is between two populations. They come out of their home.”

Lev Tov: “If the home exists, they have somewhere to return to?”

Peled: “It’s not armies yet, it’s gangs. We’re also actually gangs. We come out of the house and return to the house. They come out of the house and return to the house. It’s either their house or our house.”

Lev Tov: “Qualms belong to the more recent generation?”

Peled: “Yes, today. When I sit in an armchair here and think about what happened, all kinds of thoughts come to mind.”

Lev Tov: “Wasn’t that the case then?”

Peled: “Look, let me tell you something even less nice and cruel, about the big raid in Sasa [Palestinian village in Upper Galilee].

The goal was actually to deter them, to tell them, ‘Dear friends, the Palmach [the Haganah “shock troops”] can reach every place, you are not immune.’

That was the heart of the Arab settlement. But what did we do? My platoon blew up 20 homes with everything that was there.”

Lev Tov: “While people were sleeping there?”

Peled: “I suppose so. What happened there, we came, we entered the village, planted a bomb next to every house, and afterward Homesh blew on a trumpet, because we didn’t have radios, and that was the signal [for our forces] to leave.

We’re running in reverse, the sappers stay, they pull, it’s all primitive. They light the fuse or pull the detonator and all those houses are gone.”

Another passage that the Defense Ministry wanted to keep from the public came from Dr. Lev Tov’s conversation with Maj. Gen. Avraham Tamir:

Tamir“I was under Chera [Maj. Gen. Tzvi Tzur, later IDF chief of staff], and I had excellent working relations with him.

He gave me freedom of action – don’t ask – and I happened to be in charge of staff and operations work during two developments deriving from [Prime Minister David] Ben-Gurion’s policy.

One development was when reports arrived about marches of refugees from Jordan toward the abandoned villages [in Israel].

And then Ben-Gurion lays down as policy that we have to demolish [the villages] so they won’t have anywhere to return to.

That is, all the Arab villages, most of which were in [the area covered by] Central Command, most of them.”

Lev Tov: “The ones that were still standing?”

Tamir: “The ones that weren’t yet inhabited by Israelis.

There were places where we had already settled Israelis, like Zakariyya and others.

But most of them were still abandoned villages.”

Lev Tov: “That were standing?”

Tamir: “Standing. It was necessary for there to be no place for them to return to, so I mobilized all the engineering battalions of Central Command, and within 48 hours I knocked all those villages to the ground. Period.

There’s no place to return to.”

Lev Tov: “Without hesitation, I imagine.”

Tamir: “Without hesitation. That was the policy. I mobilized, I carried it out and I did it.”

Crates in vaults

The vault of the Yad Yaari Research and Documentation Center is one floor below ground level.

In the vault, which is actually a small, well-secured room, are stacks of crates containing classified documents.

The archive houses the materials of the Hashomer Hatzair movement, the Kibbutz Ha’artzi kibbutz movement, Mapam, Meretz and other bodies, such as Peace Now.

The archive’s director is Dudu Amitai, who is also chairman of the Association of Israel Archivists.

According to Amitai, Malmab personnel visited the archive regularly between 2009 and 2011.

Staff of the archive relate that security department teams – two Defense Ministry retirees with no archival training – would show up two or three times a week.

They searched for documents according to such keywords as “nuclear,” “security” and “censorship,” and also devoted considerable time to the War of Independence and the fate of the pre-1948 Arab villages.

“In the end, they submitted a summary to us, saying that they had located a few dozen sensitive documents,” Amitai says.

“We don’t usually take apart files, so dozens of files, in their entirety, found their way into our vault and were removed from the public catalog.”

A file might contain more than 100 documents.

One of the files that was sealed deals with the military government that controlled the lives of Israel’s Arab citizens from 1948 until 1966.

For years, the documents were stored in the same vault, inaccessible to scholars.

Recently, in the wake of a request by Prof. Gadi Algazi, a historian from Tel Aviv University, Amitai examined the file himself and ruled that there was no reason not to unseal it, Malmab’s opinion notwithstanding.

According to Algazi, there could be several reasons for Malmab’s decision to keep the file classified.

One of them has to do with a secret annex it contains to a report by a committee that examined the operation of the military government.

The report deals almost entirely with land-ownership battles between the state and Arab citizens, and barely touches on security matters.

Another possibility is a 1958 report by the ministerial committee that oversaw the military government.

In one of the report’s secret appendixes, Col. Mishael Shaham, a senior officer in the military government, explains that one reason for not dismantling the martial law apparatus is the need to restrict Arab citizens’ access to the labor market and to prevent the reestablishment of destroyed villages.

A third possible explanation for hiding the file concerns previously unpublished historical testimony about the expulsion of Bedouin.

On the eve of Israel’s establishment, nearly 100,000 Bedouin lived in the Negev.

Three years later, their number was down to 13,000. In the years during and after the independence war, a number of expulsion operations were carried out in the country’s south.

In one case, United Nations observers reported that Israel had expelled 400 Bedouin from the Azazma tribe and cited testimonies of tents being burned.

The letter that appears in the classified file describes a similar expulsion carried out as late as 1956, as related by geologist Avraham Parnes:

The evacuation of Iraq al-Manshiyya, near today’s Kiryat Gat, in March, 1949.
Collection of Benno Rothenberg/The IDF and Defense Establishment Archives

“A month ago we toured Ramon [crater]. The Bedouin in the Mohila area came to us with their flocks and their families and asked us to break bread with them.

I replied that we had a great deal of work to do and didn’t have time.

In our visit this week, we headed toward Mohila again.

Instead of the Bedouin and their flocks, there was deathly silence.

Scores of camel carcasses were scattered in the area. We learned that three days earlier the IDF had ‘screwed’ the Bedouin, and their flocks were destroyed – the camels by shooting, the sheep with grenades.

One of the Bedouin, who started to complain, was killed, the rest fled.”

The testimony continued, “Two weeks earlier, they’d been ordered to stay where they were for the time being, afterward they were ordered to leave, and to speed things up 500 head were slaughtered…. The expulsion was executed ‘efficiently.’”

The letter goes on to quote what one of the soldiers said to Parnes, according to his testimony: “They won’t go unless we’ve screwed their flocks.

A young girl of about 16 approached us. She had a beaded necklace of brass snakes.

We tore the necklace and each of us took a bead for a souvenir.”

The letter was originally sent to MK Yaakov Uri, from Mapai (forerunner of Labor), who passed it on to Development Minister Mordechai Bentov (Mapam).

“His letter shocked me,” Uri wrote Bentov.

The latter circulated the letter among all the cabinet ministers, writing, “It is my opinion that the government cannot simply ignore the facts related in the letter.”

Bentov added that, in light of the appalling contents of the letter, he asked security experts to check its credibility. They had confirmed that the contents “do in fact generally conform to the truth.”

Nuclear excuse

It was during the tenure of historian Tuvia Friling as Israel’s chief archivist, from 2001 to 2004, that Malmab carried out its first archival incursions.

What began as an operation to prevent the leakage of nuclear secrets, he says, became, in time, a large-scale censorship project.

“I resigned after three years, and that was one of the reasons,” Prof. Friling says.

“The classification placed on the document about the Arabs’ emigration in 1948 is precisely an example of what I was apprehensive about.

The storage and archival system is not an arm of the state’s public relations.

If there’s something you don’t like – well, that’s life.

A healthy society also learns from its mistakes.”

Why did Friling allow the Defense Ministry to have access the archives?

The reason, he says, was the intention to give the public access to archival material via the internet.

In discussions about the implications of digitizing the material, concern was expressed that references in the documents to a “certain topic” would be made public by mistake.

The topic, of course, is Israel’s nuclear project. Friling insists that the only authorization Malmab received was to search for documents on that subject.

But Malmab’s activity is only one example of a broader problem, Friling notes: “In 1998, the confidentiality of the [oldest documents in the] Shin Bet and Mossad archives expired.

For years those two institutions disdained the chief archivist.

When I took over, they requested that the confidentiality of all the material be extended [from 50] to 70 years, which is ridiculous – most of the material can be opened.”

In 2010, the confidentiality period was extended to 70 years; last February it was extended again, to 90 years, despite the opposition of the Supreme Council of Archives.

“The state may impose confidentiality on some of its documentation,” Friling says.

“The question is whether the issue of security doesn’t act as a kind of cover. In many cases, it’s already become a joke.”

In the view of Yad Yaari’s Dudu Amitai, the confidentiality imposed by the Defense Ministry must be challenged.

In his period at the helm, he says, one of the documents placed in the vault was an order issued by an IDF general, during a truce in the War of Independence, for his troops to refrain from rape and looting.

Amitai now intends to go over the documents that were deposited in the vault, especially 1948 documents, and open whatever is possible.

“We’ll do it cautiously and responsibly, but recognizing that the State of Israel has to learn how to cope with the less pleasant aspects of its history.”

In contrast to Yad Yaari, where ministry personnel no longer visit, they are continuing to peruse documents at Yad Tabenkin, the research and documentation center of the United Kibbutz Movement.

The director, Aharon Azati, reached an agreement with the Malmab teams under which documents will be transferred to the vault only if he is convinced that this is justified.

But in Yad Tabenkin, too, Malmab has broadened its searches beyond the realm of nuclear project to encompass interviews conducted by archival staff with former members of the Palmach, and has even perused material about the history of the settlements in the occupied territories.

Malmab has, for example, shown interest in the Hebrew-language book “A Decade of Discretion: Settlement Policy in the Territories 1967-1977,” published by Yad Tabenkin in 1992, and written by Yehiel Admoni, director of the Jewish Agency’s Settlement Department during the decade he writes about.

The book mentions a plan to settle Palestinian refugees in the Jordan Valley and to the uprooting of 1,540 Bedouin families from the Rafah area of the Gaza Strip in 1972, including an operation that included the sealing of wells by the IDF.

Ironically, in the case of the Bedouin, Admoni quotes former Justice Minister Yaakov Shimshon Shapira as saying, “It is not necessary to stretch the security rationale too far.

The whole Bedouin episode is not a glorious chapter of the State of Israel.”

According to Azati, “We are moving increasingly to a tightening of the ranks.

Although this is an era of openness and transparency, there are apparently forces that are pulling in the opposite direction.”

Unauthorized secrecy

About a year ago, the legal adviser to the State Archives, attorney Naomi Aldouby, wrote an opinion titled “Files Closed Without Authorization in Public Archives.”

According to her, the accessibility policy of public archives is the exclusive purview of the director of each institution.

Despite Aldouby’s opinion, however, in the vast majority of cases, archivists who encountered unreasonable decisions by Malmab did not raise objections – that is, until 2014, when Defense Ministry personnel arrived at the archive of the Harry S. Truman Research Institute at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

To the visitors’ surprise, their request to examine the archive – which contains collections of former minister and diplomat Abba Eban and Maj. Gen. (res.) Shlomo Gazit – was turned down by its then director, Menahem Blondheim.

According to Blondheim, “I told them that the documents in question were decades old, and that I could not imagine that there was any security problem that would warrant restricting their access to researchers.

In response, they said, ‘And let’s say there is testimony here that wells were poisoned in the War of Independence?’ I replied, ‘Fine, those people should be brought to trial.’”

Blondheim’s refusal led to a meeting with a more senior ministry official, only this time the attitude he encountered was different and explicit threats were made. Finally the two sides reached an accommodation.

Benny Morris is not surprised at Malmab’s activity. “I knew about it,” he says “Not officially, no one informed me, but I encountered it when I discovered that documents I had seen in the past are now sealed.

There were documents from the IDF Archive that I used for an article about Deir Yassin, and which are now sealed.

When I came to the archive, I was no longer allowed to see the original, so I pointed out in a footnote [in the article] that the State Archive had denied access to documents that I had published 15 years earlier.”

The Malmab case is only one example of the battle being waged for access to archives in Israel.

According to the executive director of the Akevot Institute, Lior Yavne, “The IDF Archive, which is the largest archive in Israel, is sealed almost hermetically.

About 1 percent of the material is open.

The Shin Bet archive, which contains materials of immense importance [to scholars], is totally closed apart from a handful of documents.”

A report written by Yaacov Lozowick, the previous chief archivist at the State Archives, upon his retirement, refers to the defense establishment’s grip on the country’s archival materials.

In it, he writes, “A democracy must not conceal information because it is liable to embarrass the state.

In practice, the security establishment in Israel, and to a certain extent that of foreign relations as well, are interfering with the [public] discussion.”

Advocates of concealment put forward several arguments, Lozowick notes: “The uncovering of the facts could provide our enemies with a battering ram against us and weaken the determination of our friends; it’s liable to stir up the Arab population; it could enfeeble the state’s arguments in courts of law; and what is revealed could be interpreted as Israeli war crimes.” However, he says, “All these arguments must be rejected.

This is an attempt to hide part of the historical truth in order to construct a more convenient version.”

What Malmab says

Yehiel Horev was the keeper of the security establishment’s secrets for more than two decades.

He headed the Defense Ministry’s security department from 1986 until 2007 and naturally kept out of the limelight.

To his credit, he now agreed to talk forthrightly to Haaretz about the archives project.

“I don’t remember when it began,” Horev says, “but I do know that I started it.

If I’m not mistaken, it started when people wanted to publish documents from the archives.

We had to set up teams to examine all outgoing material.”

From conversations with archive directors, it’s clear that a good deal of the documents on which confidentiality was imposed relate to the War of Independence. Is concealing the events of 1948 part of the purpose of Malmab?

“What does ‘part of the purpose’ mean?

The subject is examined based on an approach of whether it could harm Israel’s foreign relations and the defense establishment.

Those are the criteria. I think it’s still relevant.

There has not been peace since 1948.

I may be wrong, but to the best of my knowledge the Arab-Israeli conflict has not been resolved.

So yes, it could be that problematic subjects remain.”

Asked in what way such documents might be problematic, Horev speaks of the possibility of agitation among the country’s Arab citizens.

From his point of view, every document must be perused and every case decided on its merits.

If the events of 1948 weren’t known, we could argue about whether this approach is the right one. That is not the case. Many testimonies and studies have appeared about the history of the refugee problem. What’s the point of hiding things?

“The question is whether it can do harm or not. It’s a very sensitive matter.

Not everything has been published about the refugee issue, and there are all kinds of narratives.

Some say there was no flight at all, only expulsion.

Others say there was flight. It’s not black-and-white.

There’s a difference between flight and those who say they were forcibly expelled.

It’s a different picture. I can’t say now if it merits total confidentiality, but it’s a subject that definitely has to be discussed before a decision is made about what to publish.”

For years, the Defense Ministry has imposed confidentiality on a detailed document that describes the reasons for the departure of those who became refugees.

Benny Morris has already written about the document, so what’s the logic of keeping it hidden?

“I don’t remember the document you’re referring to, but if he quoted from it and the document itself is not there [i.e., where Morris says it is], then his facts aren’t strong.

If he says, ‘Yes, I have the document,’ I can’t argue with that.

But if he says that it’s written there, that could be right and it could be wrong.

If the document were already outside and were sealed in the archive, I would say that that’s folly. But if someone quoted from it – there’s a difference of day and night in terms of the validity of the evidence he cited.”

In this case, we’re talking about the most quoted scholar when it comes to the Palestinian refugees.

“The fact that you say ‘scholar’ makes no impression on me. I know people in academia who spout nonsense about subjects that I know from A to Z.

When the state imposes confidentiality, the published work is weakened, because he doesn’t have the document.”

But isn’t concealing documents based on footnotes in books an attempt to lock the barn door after the horses have bolted?

“I gave you an example that this needn’t be the case. If someone writes that the horse is black, if the horse isn’t outside the barn, you can’t prove that it’s really black.”

There are legal opinions stating that Malmab’s activity in the archives is illegal and unauthorized.

“If I know that an archive contains classified material, I am empowered to tell the police to go there and confiscate the material.

I can also utilize the courts. I don’t need the archivist’s authorization.

If there is classified material, I have the authority to act.

Look, there’s policy.

Documents aren’t sealed for no reason.

And despite it all, I won’t say to you that everything that’s sealed is 100 percent justified [in being sealed].”

The Defense Ministry refused to respond to specific questions regarding the findings of this investigative report and made do with the following response: “The director of security of the defense establishment operates by virtue of his responsibility to protect the state’s secrets and its security assets.

The Malmab does not provide details about its mode of activity or its missions.”

7 2 9: BOYCOTT FOR JUSTICE!

The US is Fast Becoming Another Israel

United States President Joe Biden has finally owned up to being a Zionist. This is no surprise.

He wears his apathy for the Palestinians like a Victorian Cross.

Besides, American presidents are either pro-Zionist or like Biden, a Zionist.

What is troubling, though, is how pleased he is in helping Israel stay an apartheid regime.

Again, we shouldn’t be surprised.

The US is fast becoming another Israel. There, criticising Zionism is considered antisemitism, like in Israel.

Boycotting Israel is also turning out to be against the law as the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS), a movement for Palestinian justice, is finding out.

Last month a US appeals court upheld an Arkansas law that bars the state’s contractors from boycotting Israel.

The court cleverly sidestepped the idea of free speech guaranteed by the US Constitution’s First Amendment by calling it a commercial activity.

Will the US Supreme Court be similarly clever? We will see, but know this.

The New Zionist McCarthyism

Seems to me like another Zionist coup. The Zionist snakes do everything incrementally so it goes unnoticed by the public.

Just as McCarthy destroyed liberals through the same means using accusations of communism, so now the charge of fascism or its relative – anti-Semitism – is being used.

The reckless charge of anti-Semitism is dangerous to Jews.

Its widespread use for political ends with tenuous evidence simply deadens the listener’s sensitivity too often.

It is crying wolf. 

McCarthy has also long sought to remove “Squad” member Omar from her seat on the Foreign Affairs Committee, accusing the Minnesota Democrat of making antisemitic comments in the past.

Omar, who was first elected in 2018, has ignited a series of controversies over her anti-Israel positions and has faced other accusations of antisemitism over specific comments.

Omar responded to McCarthy’s pledge to strip her committee assignments on Sunday, accusing the speaker of being hypocritical.

Israeli dual citizen

House Republicans are taking aim at the Biden administration; the Democratic Party, including their own Democratic colleagues; and a wide range of governmental institutions deemed “tyrannical.”

They will use their investigative and subpoena power to destroy individuals, disrupt the process of government, attack opponents, and delegitimize the very institutions of liberal democracy.

And they will be aided, abetted, and incited by a far-reaching network of media institutions and social media platforms.

They cannot govern. But they do not seek to govern.

They seek to lay waste to what they despise, and especially anything that is “foreign” to their perverse idea of “American Greatness.”

What they despise is nothing less than political pluralism and liberal democracy itself.

Blinken was a foreign policy advisor for Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign and was appointed his Secretary of State. During the campaign, he sought to reassure Jewish groups that Biden was a strong supporter of Israel with a long history of knowing its leaders.

 

McCarthy Condemns Antisemitism at Berkeley Law School

Nov 7, 2022 
Press Release

 
Today, Congressman Kevin McCarthy condemned the antisemitic behavior occurring at U.C. Berkeley’s School of Law and the institution’s failure to promote a safe campus for all students.


 
This fall, several student groups made the decision to ban certain speakers from events. Berkeley Law has failed to address these actions.
 
Congressman McCarthy released the following statement:

“Antisemitism is a scourge on our society and has no place in American life.

 For decades, Israel has not only been our greatest ally in the Middle East, but one of our greatest allies on the world stage.

It is shameful that Berkeley Law, an institution which, on its own website, touts itself as “one of the most vibrant places on the planet,” would allow this type of prejudiced behavior to take place on its campus without any consequences for involved parties.
 
“Berkeley Law must step up and immediately condemn these student groups to stop antisemitic behavior on campus.

To turn a blind eye and continue to allow this blatant discrimination is un-American and runs directly counter to our values.” 

McCarthy says Israel has right to defend itself amid deadly unrest

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Tuesday said Israel has a right to defend itself while also condemning Hamas as violence and unrest continue to intensify in the region. 

McCarthy’s comments come amid some of the worst fighting in years.

Back-and-forth armed strikes between Palestinian militants and Israeli forces have surged following weeks of tension in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and demonstrations by Arab communities. 

The situation escalated in the wake of the potential eviction of Arab families from an East Jerusalem neighborhood, reigniting a sensitive issue in the region: land ownership.

In a statement, McCarthy blamed Hamas, which governs Gaza, for the escalations.

“These rocket attacks confirm once again that there is no moral equivalency between Israel and Hamas,” he said.

“Hamas seeks in no uncertain terms to destroy Israel and murder its people. They are a terrorist organization that feeds off conflict and hatred.”

The California congressman said that Hamas would “never accept peace” and “will sink to the lowest levels of inhumanity to promote violence, including attacking Israeli civilians and civilian targets and using Palestinian women and children as human shields.  

McCarthy commended the Biden administration for condemning Hamas and affirming Israel’s right to self-defense. He also said Biden should stand with Israel at the United Nations and block all efforts by the Security Council to condemn its military actions. 

‘The Execution of the Palestinian People’

An exclusive Jewish right to settle and live in the land implicitly announces that the 6.5 million Palestinians who live on it may have no right to be there at all.

As part of his bargain with the fascist blocs of Religious Zionism and Jewish Power, according to the Israeli newspaper Arab 48, incoming Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke of an “exclusive Jewish right” to expand settlements inside Israel proper, in Galilee and the Negev, as well as to plant squatters in the Palestinian West Bank.

An exclusive Jewish right to settle and live in the land implicitly announces that the 6.5 million Palestinians who live on it are there by suffrage and maybe have no right to be there at all. That right is exclusively Jewish, Netanyahu says.

The Zionists say they are not colonizers. They say they are in their own homeland. But they behave as colonizers. They are foreign to Palestine or even  Israel at any point in time) took all what wasn’t theirs. Invented a people, an alien language (Hebrew)  for themselves.

Jordanian newspaper called this plank of his platform “the execution of the Palestinian people.”

According to the Associated Press, Netanyahu announced that he will legalize those Israeli squatter-settlements on Palestinian-owned land that even Israel had considered illegal.

He would vastly expand the number of Israeli squatters in the Palestinian West Bank. And ultimately, he pledged to annex the Palestinian West Bank entirely to Israel.

Since Netanyahu has no intention of ever granting Israeli citizenship to the 3 million Palestinians living under Israeli military rule, the formal annexation of their territory would cement Israel’s Apartheid system of racial difference.

According to Arab 48, the Adalah human rights organization denounced the platform as openly racist, discriminatory and Jewish supremacist, especially the language about exclusive Jewish rights to the land, which implies that Palestinian East Jerusalem will never be allowed to become the capital of a Palestinian state.

Adalah called on the world to take a stand against this flagrant Israeli Apartheid.

The outline of Netanyahu’s governmental program ominously said that preference would be given to former soldiers in the Israeli army for admission to university departments of medicine, law, computer science, accounting, and engineering.

Since the 21% of the population who are of Palestinian heritage are not permitted to serve in the military, this step would put them at a severe disadvantage in receiving admission to those departments.

Only the small community of Druze are an exception to the ban on military service.

The mealy-mouthed contradictions are apparent in his pledge both to treat all communities equally and to use the education system to “strengthen Jewish identity.”

Likewise, he will safeguard the Jewish character of the state, but not upset the status quo among the various religions in Israel.

(Most of the 21% who are of Palestinian heritage are Muslim, but there is a vocal Christian minority that is increasingly upset about Jewish attacks on churches and attempts to take away church lands. 

Netanyahu’s new best friends on the fascist Right are for anything but treating non-Jews equally or maintaining the status quo regarding Muslim and Christian places of worship.

 

Stole everything from Palestine!

But of course Palestinian-Israelis are 21% of the population and sometimes they can have an impact on elections, so Netanyahu turned around and said in his platform that he would address issues in insecurity and crime in Palestinian-Israeli communities, and would invest in education and infrastructure for them.

Very magnanimous of him, since apparently they are excluded from the exclusively Jewish right to even be there.

His platform made a sinister call for a “rebalancing” of the powers of the executive, the legislature, and the judiciary, with the implication that the judiciary would be cut down to size.

Netanyahu is on trial for corruption before the courts. Netanyahu apparently wants to strike down the prerogative of judicial review of laws that appear to contradict organic laws that have a constitutional character.

In short, the supreme court could not overturn a law of the parliament or Knesset that its justices believe to be unconstitutional.

It is sort of as though Steve Bannon were elected president and started rejiggering the U.S. constitution and racial relations, only in Hebrew.

 

Israel ‘afraid’ to reveal looted Palestinian documents fearing debunked Zionist myths

December 5, 2022
Probably the first time the occupiers of Palestine get a taste of what their neighbors really think of them. They seemed surprised! And then there’s the rest of us…

Israeli historian Shay Hazkani has said that the Israel State Archive’s refusal to release written material looted from the Palestinians on the pretext that this would “undermine national security” is actually “cover for a completely different fear”.

He believes that the tens of thousands of documents looted by Israel during the ethnic cleansing of the indigenous population in 1947/48 will, if made available, completely undermine the Zionist narrative about the founding of the occupation state.

Writing in Haaretz, the associate professor of Jewish Studies also described the impossible hurdles he has had to jump through to obtain access to tens of thousands of pages of yet to be declassified Arabic documents looted by Israel.

Palestinians being put out to sea by occupiers

One of the many false claims spread by Israel’s founders was that the Palestinians wanted to “throw the Jews into the sea.”

Hazkani has found no calls for murdering Jews just because they were Jews in either Arab propaganda or the educational material aimed at Palestinians and Arab fighters in 1948.

“Judging by the documents I collected for my latest book, the claims about an Arab plan to ‘throw the Jews into the sea’ are actually rooted in official Zionist propaganda,” he explained.

“This propaganda began during the [Nakba], perhaps to encourage Jewish fighters to leave as few Palestinians as possible in the areas that would become part of Israel.”

A comparison of Arab and Jewish propaganda issued in 1948 revealed that the propaganda of the Israeli army and its precursor, the Haganah, was much more violent.

Hazkani was only granted permission to view documents five years after he had sought permission to examine several files that were looted from Palestinian institutions during the fighting that took place in the wake of Israel’s creation and whose existence had been concealed.

Nevertheless, full details of the information that would reveal what Palestinian intentions were, including those of the much-maligned Mufti of Jerusalem Amin Al-Husseini, remain classified until 2040.

While Al-Husseini’s correspondence with senior Nazi officials was made available, the official policy and motives of the leader of the Palestinian national movement during World War Two will remain classified for another two decades.

“There are not and cannot be any state secrets in Arabic documents written by Palestinians, such as their plans for an independent Palestinian state or documents from an orphanage in Jaffa,” argued Hazkani.

Indeed, he said that the biggest secret is the very existence of these documents, which are a memorial to a destroyed Palestinian civilization.

The reason why they remain a “secret” and why Israeli officials responsible for declassifying the documents want to keep them locked away is because they might undermine the official Zionist narrative and raise doubts among people willing to examine history with a critical eye.
