A long trail of assassinations in Iran fuel hostilities with the Wests’ “Israel” Outpost in Palestine

June 22, 2022

Iran said, this week, it will soon put on trial what it said were three Mossad-linked agents arrested in April amid simmering tensions between the Islamic Republic and arch-foe, Israel, which has been waging a shadow war in the Middle East for years.

A prosecutor said the three detained men were planning to assassinate nuclear scientists.

Iran has long accused Israel, which the Islamic Republic refuses to recognise, of sabotaging nuclear sites and killing scientists to disrupt its nuclear programme.

The West and Israel fear Iran’s programme is aimed at producing weapons, which Iran denies.

Israel, itself widely believed to possess nuclear weapons, sees Iran’s nuclear programme as an existential menace.

Here are some details of attacks on Iranian scientists and other figures in recent years:

Revolutionary Guards, Colonel Sayad Khodai

Two people on a motorcycle open fire on Revolutionary Guards Colonel Khodai in Tehran on 22 May. Although Khodai was not involved in Iran’s nuclear programme, Israel accused him of plotting attacks against its citizens worldwide.

His death was the latest in a series of what Iranian officials say are Israeli attacks. Israel does not comment on such incidents.

The semi-official ISNA news agency reported that members of an Israeli intelligence service network were arrested by the Guards. Tehran blamed Israel and vowed revenge.

Nuclear Scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh

Top Iranian nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was killed in an ambush near Tehran in November of 2020. A senior Revolutionary Guards commander said the killing was carried out remotely with artificial intelligence and a machine gun equipped with a “satellite-controlled smart system.”

Shortly after his death, Iran pointed the finger at Israel, with the Foreign Minister alleging “serious indications of (an) Israeli role”.

Israel neither confirmed nor denied responsibility.

Fakhrizadeh had been described by Western and Israeli intelligence services for years as the mysterious leader of a covert atomic bomb programme halted in 2003, which Israel and the United States accuse Tehran of trying to restore. Iran says its nuclear programme is solely for civil uses.

Nuclear Scientist, Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan

Ahmadi-Roshan, a 32-year-old chemical engineering graduate, was killed by a bomb placed on his car by a motorcyclist in Tehran in January 2012. Another passenger died in hospital and a pedestrian was injured.

Iran said the victim supervised a department at the country’s underground Natanz Uranium Enrichment Facility. Iran blamed Israel and the United States for the attack.

Scientist, Darioush Rezai

Rezai, 35, was shot dead by gunmen in eastern Tehran on 23 July, 2011. The university lecturer had a PhD in physics. Deputy Interior Minister, Safarali Baratlou, said he was not linked to Iran’s nuclear program after early reports in some media said he was.

Massoud Alimohammadi 

Alimohammadi, an elementary-particle physicist, was killed in January 2010 when a bomb hidden in a motorcycle exploded.

Western sources said the professor worked closely with Fakhrizadeh and Fereydoun Abbassi-Davani, who were both subject to UN sanctions because of their work on suspected nuclear weapons development.

A list of Alimohammadi’s publications on Tehran University’s website suggested his specialisation was theoretical particle physics, not nuclear energy, a Western physics professor said.

An Iranian man pleaded guilty to the murder of Alimohammadi. Prosecutors said the man had travelled to Israel to receive training from the Mossad intelligence agency, and was paid $120,000.

Nuclear scientist, Majid Shahriyari 

Nuclear scientist, Shahriyari, was killed and his wife was wounded in a car bomb blast in Tehran on 29 November, 2010, in what Iranian officials called an Israeli or US-sponsored attack.

Iran’s Atomic Energy Agency chief, Ali Akbar Salehi, said Shahriyari had a role in one of the country’s biggest nuclear projects, but did not elaborate, the official news agency, IRNA, reported.

Fereydoun Abbasi-Davani 

Abbasi-Davani and his wife were hurt in a car bomb blast on the same day as Shahriyari was killed.

Abbasi-Davani, who was head of physics department at Imam Hossein University, had been subject to UN sanctions because of what Western officials said was his involvement in suspected nuclear weapons research.

The Intelligence Minister at the time, Heydar Moslehi, later said: “This terrorist act was carried out by intelligence services such as the CIA, Mossad and the MI6.”

Zionist Power Over Washington

 • JANUARY 18, 2022

There have appeared a couple of stories recently that illustrate how there is only one “red line” that no one dares cross in Washington and that is criticism of Israel and its associated supportive mythologies of increasing “holocaust denial” and “surging anti-Semitism.”

The rule is ruthlessly enforced by the Israel Lobby, often by its redoubtable Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which is based in New York City but has a regional office in the capital, conveniently close to government offices, from which vantage point it can observe possible deviations and mete out instant punishment.

If one wants to learn how hypersensitive (and vicious) defenders of Israel and/or Jewishness can be it is only necessary to read about the recent experience of strongly pro-Israel Republican Senator Marco Rubio.

He denounced “upscale liberals who control the media” in a tweet and was immediately attacked for “the anti-Semitic trope that Jews control the media,” which of course they do, but Rubio is too stupid and too fearful of Jewish influence to be suggesting that.

So, one must conclude it is not even safe for a conservative friend of Israel to mention the “liberal media” for fear of being labeled as guilty of “coded anti-Semitism.”

Likewise, any mention of the malign influence of George Soros by Republicans is likely to bring down the wrath of the usual suspects, not because it is a fiction but solely because he is Jewish and it implies that Jews can interact conspiratorially, which is demonstrably true.

Another interesting story concerns a government institution that I had never heard of before, the US Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad (USCPAHA), and guess what?

It is nearly all about Israel, Jews and the so-called holocaust! If you don’t believe that bold assertion on my part, go to the organization’s website which includes multiple pictures of people handing out holocaust related “Cultural Pluralism Awards” and smiling for the camera.

The commission was created by Public Law 99-83 in 1985 and its ostensible purpose stated on the website is to “1. identify and report on cemeteries, monuments, and historic buildings in Eastern and Central Europe that are associated with the heritage of US citizens, particularly endangered properties, and 2. obtain, in cooperation with the Department of State, assurances from the governments of the region that the properties will be protected and preserved…

The establishment of the Commission recognized that the population of the United States is mostly comprised of immigrants and their descendants.

The United States has an interest in the preservation of sites in other countries related to the heritage of these Americans.

The Holocaust and 45 years of atheist Communist governments created a critical need that led to the Commission’s establishment.”

The site also includes a list of “projects” , which are overwhelmingly Jewish/holocaust related and located in the parts of Europe where Jews settled.

Alison Weir’s “If Americans Knew” has reported how in the past congress there were 70 largely hidden bills that in some way benefited Israel, and the creation of America’s Heritage Abroad has that smell to it, yet another gift that flies beneath the radar by being attached to a larger piece of legislation.

America’s Heritage Abroad only surfaced in the news due to a stink being raised by ADL over one of the organization’s 21 commissioners, all of whom appear to be Jewish judging from their names.

He is Darren Beattie, who has been described as a “Right-wing conspiracy theorist [who] continues to occupy a position in the federal government given to him by Donald Trump, almost a year since Joe Biden took office and gained the ability to fire him.

Beattie was appointed by then-President Donald Trump in November 2020 to serve on the Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad.

Its main responsibilities are seeking to preserve monuments in eastern and central Europe, many of which memorialize Holocaust victims.

He gained new prominence in recent weeks promoting conspiracy theories about the Capitol riot, earning public praise from Trump.”

Recently, the ADL criticized the appointment and said that Beattie, who describes himself as a “proud Jew” on Twitter, should not be continuing to serve on the commission.

Spokesman Jake Hyman complained that “Since Beattie’s appointment to the Commission in November 2020, he has continued to spread outrageous and deeply harmful falsehoods and misinformation, including about the January 6 insurrection, that are at odds with serving in such positions of official responsibility.

We retain our view that Beattie, who once attended an event with white supremacists and participated in a panel discussion with white nationalist Peter Brimelow, should have no place on a commission that plays a special role preserving Jewish heritage sites from before the Holocaust.”

Beattie claims that he is still on the commission even though he no longer appears on its website.

He states that “I’m proud to serve president Biden to honor the memory of the Holocaust” before criticizing ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt as a “Democrat apparatchik” who has “destroyed the reputation of the ADL during his tenure.”

So, the United States is now in the business of promoting holocaust remembrance on the taxpayer’s dime.

Another fascinating news report that just surfaced also has a holocaust plus “surging” anti-Semitism back story.

It is all about how numerous Biden nominees are stuck in the Senate waiting for approval, but it is really about Deborah Lipstadt who is described as a “renowned holocaust scholar.”

Lipstadt is the Dorot professor of Modern Jewish history and Holocaust studies at Atlanta’s Emory University, as well as founding director of Emory’s Institute for Jewish Studies.

She has also held senior positions at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, another taxpayer supported enterprise that promotes the Israel narrative. Lipstadt has sharply criticized some progressives in the Democratic Party who have dared to criticize Israel, including Representative Ilhan Omar, for describing pro-Israel Americans as a “political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”

Such statements are “part of the textbook accusations against Jews,” Lipstadt countered, but Omar was, of course, right, though not allowed to get away with the truth when confronted by the Democratic Party establishment led by a foaming at the mouth Nancy Pelosi.

The White House announced in late July that Lipstadt would lead an expansion of the activity of the State Department’s Office of the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, which is tasked with tracking and countering the alleged rise of anti-Semitism abroad.

For the first time, the position will have the rank of ambassador, which makes necessary Senate confirmation.

Bear in mind that these are all mechanisms set up specifically to promote the narratives favored by international Jewry.

Apart from affirmative action for blacks and other set-asides to favor them, there exists nothing in the US government to enhance the status of any other European, Latino or Asian ethnic groups or religious persuasions that is in any way similar.

These commissions, offices and special ambassadorships were established through the assiduous marketing of their brand by Jews using their methodically exploited financial power and the political access that it buys.

To cite only one example of what all that networking produces, politically wired Jewish organizations already receive more than 90% of the discretionary grants for “security” issued by the Department of Homeland Security.

And the end result is that Washington is a helpless giant that is drawn into conflicts in the Middle East that it would best avoid while also funding the Jewish aggressors, most recently in response to a demand to rearm the Israeli military with $1 billion, conflicts which serve no US national interest.

Finally, should the United States be so obsessed with a narrative that is certainly in many respects questionable and which relates to events that largely took place many years ago overseas?

Should the American taxpayer continue to foot the bill for all these contrivances to bind the US government hand and foot to the “heritage” of a small minority of the population and to its favored foreign state?

These are questions that are almost never asked though, as Voltaire allegedly put it, “If you want to know who controls you, look at who you are not allowed to criticize.”

How Iran’s Missile Strategy has Rewritten the Rules of Middle Eastern Wars

Iran has built an extraordinary military alliance stretching from Lebanon to Gaza to Yemen that missile by missile has changed the rules of war in the Middle East

 

by Kevin Barrett

On Nov. 12, 2011, an explosion was heard across Tehran.

Within hours, the Iranian press reported that 14 members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), including Hassan Tehrani Moghaddam, popularly known as “the father of the Iranian missile,” had died in an accident at the Shahid Modarres base, 30 miles outside the city.

At the funeral, attended by the religious, civilian and military leaders of the Islamic Republic, the bereaved wept.

An IRGC general attributed Iran’s military deterrence and its “self-sufficiency” to Moghaddam, while Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, credited him with “filling Palestinian hands with missiles instead of stones to strike these arrogant terrorists.”

The mourners doubted Moghaddam and the other IRGC officers had died accidentally but had instead been killed in an Israeli attack, one of a string of recent political assassinations aimed at the heart of Iran’s security state.

Days before his death, Moghaddam, who headed the IRGC’s missile division, had ordered missile test results duplicated and stored in secret locations owing to a fivefold increase in explosions at key security sites in the previous year.

While the epitaph on his gravestone in Tehran reads “Here Lies a Man Who Wanted to Destroy Israel,” it is safe to assume Moghaddam knew his enemies would likely get to him first.

Although Tehran still struggles to deter so-called gray zone attacks by Israel such as assassinations and sabotage, its missile program, built from scratch by Moghaddam, has successfully deterred the airstrikes regularly threatened by Israel.

It has also deterred the United States from carrying out airstrikes, particularly during the first term of then-President George W. Bush, with U.S. forces occupying neighboring Iraq.

In the decade before his death, Moghaddam was involved as much in strengthening Iran’s missile defense and counterstrike system as he was in integrating Hezbollah’s defense into Iran’s own program, training a cadre of Lebanese engineers.

“Knowledge cannot be bombed,” he said, giving voice to Iran’s policy not only of supplying missiles but also, crucially, sharing know-how to sustain the deterrence.

Today, the balance of power is broadly equal; for the U.S. or Israel to launch a war against Iran or Lebanon is almost politically unthinkable.

“The Iranians and Lebanese Hezbollah now have a really deadly reconnaissance strike complex,” explained Michael Knights of the Washington Institute.

“They can absolutely wreck the infrastructure, lifestyle and economic functioning of their close enemies.”

Of course, the reverse is also true, but Iran’s strategy is not suicide, despite Moghaddam’s epitaph, but to stabilize the Resistance, an alliance of nations opposed to the U.S. security constellation of the Middle East: Iran, most of Shia Iraq, the Syrian state and Hezbollah.

This Resistance sees Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as part of an increasingly unstable American empire, whose power needs to be checked.

Yet Tehran’s goal goes further than merely maintaining a balance of power with its enemies or ending their influence in the region.

Instead, Iran believes it is offering an alternative to the crumbling U.S. version of modernity, sustained, at least in theory, by multibillion-dollar defense industries. Iran’s military-industrial complex is the tip of the iceberg of a wider political project.

The Tehran-Beirut alliance has brought Hamas in Gaza and Yemen’s al-Houthi fighters into the Resistance, training their engineers and smuggling components to produce Moghaddam’s designs.

Over the past decade, the Tehran-Beirut alliance has brought Hamas in Gaza and Yemen’s al-Houthi fighters into the Resistance, training their engineers and smuggling components to produce Moghaddam’s designs.

This military cooperation supports allies but also bolsters Tehran’s own deterrence against Israel and Saudi Arabia by having missiles placed on their more vulnerable southern borders.

“With blood, sand and love, they are sent, built and launched,” is how the rank-and-file IRGC refer to the emerging military-industrial complex of the Resistance…

Resume requirement for counter-terrorism job appears to include: Zionist Jews

A “protection racket” is a scam where an aggressor instigates an attack, blames a bogeyman, and then offers to protect the victim from this bogeyman in return for money and power.

The “War on Terror” is a protection racket. The aggressor is the world financial elite known as the “Crown” based in the City of London. Their instrument is the Zionist project, specifically Israel, the Mossad and its Neo Con allies.


Just as relative today as then, nothing has changed!

On Monday, President Obama appealed to the Congress to approve his nominee for the counter-terrorism czar in Treasury: Adam Szubin.

“This is a vital position for our anti-terrorism efforts,” Obama said, and Szubin is “highly qualified.”

Is one of those qualifications that Szubin is Jewish? It sure looks that way.

As the Jewish Telegraphic Agency pointed out when Szubin was nominated in April, he would be the third Jew to hold this job: “In 2002, he helped found DC Minyan, an Orthodox congregation based on egalitarian principles.”

michael chertoff

Michael Chertoff, an Israeli citizen, the son of an Orthodox rabbi and a pioneer of the Mossad, headed the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice in 2001, and as such was responsible for the retention and destruction of all evidence regarding the 11th of September – from Pentagon cameras to World Trade Center beams. It is to him also that the “dancing Israelis” owe their discreet repatriation. In 2003, he was appointed to head the new Department of Homeland Security in charge of counter-terrorism on U.S. territory, which allows him to control dissent while continuing to restrict access to the file of Sept. 11 through the law of Sensitive Security Information.

The two other men to hold this job before Szubin were Stuart Levey– who studied under Marty Peretz at Harvard and wrote his college dissertation about saving the Zionist “dream” from Meir Kahane’s extremism– and Levey’s deputy David Cohen, who had the blessing of Alan Dershowitz.  “He is very consciously Jewish,” DC attorney Nathan Lewin told the JTA.

It’s a good bet that Szubin also has pro-Israel cred.

The reality is that the position of counter-terrorism czar is an Israel lobby job.

He (they’re all men) is tasked with keeping up sanctions pressure on Iran through the international banking system, but also supporting the president’s efforts to negotiate a new relationship with Iran.

David Cohen talked very tough about Iran when I heard him at NYU 3 years ago; and Obama could certainly point to Cohen and Levey as living proof that he was not being soft on Iran, and is trying to shut down Hezbollah and Hamas even as he seeks change. Covering his bases.

Dual US / Israeli Citizens Runni

Levey was a George Bush appointee; but Obama kept him on in his administration, and got cheers from the Jewish community for doing so.

That organized pro-Israel community wanted a signal that Jews who care about Israel are involved in making policy on Iran.

And Obama cared what Jews thought. He has to.

Who else opposes the Iran deal besides the organized pro-Israel Jewish community?

As Eli Clifton reports, it’s megadonors Thomas Kaplan and Sheldon Adelson, both giant supporters of Israel, who are backing one of the leading attack dog groups trying to stop the Iran deal.

This big rally against the deal is being organized at a synagogue in Long Island.

The Iran deal could be a huge win for the president.

But he needs organized Jewish community support to bring it off.

So yes, that’s why Under-secretary of Treasury for counter terrorism and financial intelligence is in essence a Jewish position.

Speaking of the pressure on the Obama administration over Iran from the organized Jewish community, look at the unseemly piece at Huffo about UN Ambassador Samantha Power from rightwing rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

Boteach is Power’s former character reference, which on its face is ludicrous, but a reflection of the political power dynamics.

9/11 Truth - Thomas Massie (R-KY) and John Duncan (R-Tenn) Joined Effort to Declassify 28 Top ...

He notes that the “Jewish community” never really trusted Power till he stood up for her, but it will turn against “Samantha” — addressing her in a familiar manner– if she doesn’t oppose a Palestinian state…

Ambassador Power wasn’t implicitly trusted by members of the Jewish community when she took her role in the National Security Council.

After writing an op-ed where I encouraged her to clarify her statements, she did just that.

We met in the White House… I became intent on transforming the Jewish community’s opinion of her, working side-by-side to persuade others that she was someone whose judgment and understanding of the conflict could be trusted when it came to issues related to Israel.

Ultimately, when the time came for her nomination to serve as US Ambassador to the United Nations, the Jewish American community registered strong, widespread support.

Yet in recent months, the Ambassador Power currently representing America before the United Nations has been a far cry from Samantha I knew.

It has pained me to see her embrace the disastrous Iran deal, even as its leadership repeatedly and unapologetically threatened Israel with genocide.

SOL-WAR - Sons of Light - Warriors Alien Resistance

You’d think Boteach is a rightwing loose cannon, but he’s not.

He writes an op-ed and gets invited to the White House.

He’s got power because the lobby transcends party alliances.

Just as Stuart Levey served two presidents, it didn’t matter what party they were.

Just as Hillary Clinton promised that she’d reach across party lines to oppose the international boycott campaign against Israel.

Israel supporter David Makovsky interprets Clinton’s message as a signal to the Obama administration not to OK a French resolution in favor of a Palestinian state because it could hurt her too much in the upcoming presidential race.

As Martin Indyk once explained, “the Jewish factor” caused Obama to fold on settlements back in 2011. 

 [Jews] tend to vote for Democratic candidates and they provide a good deal of funding for political campaigns.

So the Jewish factor is always a critical factor for Democratic candidates.

I don’t think it’s telling any secrets that there are a lot of people who have been upset with President Obama.

And I think that the White House came to the understanding that they have a real problem there and they are going out of their way trying to show they are friendly to Israel and committed to peace.

Terror Watch-Occupied Palestine

Settler shoots Palestinian in Hebron, IDF drop a knife next to victim.

Israeli statistics state that 3,500 ‘Israelis’ have been killed and 25,000 have been wounded as a result of Palestinian violence since Israel was founded in 1948.

Forms of terrorism have included hostage-taking, plane hijackings, stone-throwing, stabbing, shootings, and bombings.

According to Israeli Human Rights groups in Judea and Samaria [Palestine West Bank] , 500 Israeli civilians were killed by Palestinians from 2000 to 2012, in Israel, and another 254 Israeli civilians were killed in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

One of those human rights groups reported that the main argument used to justify violence against civilians is that “all means are legitimate in fighting for independence against a foreign occupation”.

They criticized this argument, saying it is completely baseless and contradicts the principle of international humanitarian law.

“According to this principle, civilians are to be protected from the consequences of warfare, and any attack must discriminate between civilians and military targets.

This principle is part of international customary law; as such, it applies to every state, organization, and person, even those who are not party to any relevant convention.”

Six things Hashem hates; Seven are an abomination to Him: A haughty bearing, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A mind that hatches evil plots, Feet quick to run to evil, A false witness testifying lies, And one who incites brothers to quarrel. Proverbs 6:16-19

PALESTINIAN GENOCIDE: 5,100,000 Palestinians have been killed since 1948

For anti-racist Jews and indeed all anti-racist humanitarians the core moral messages from the Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million dead, 1 in 6 dying from deprivation) and from the more general WW2 European Holocaust (30 million Slav, Jewish and Gypsy dead) are “zero tolerance for racism”, “bear witness”, “zero tolerance for lying” and “never again to anyone”, anyone including the Indigenous Palestinian victims of the racist Zionist Palestinian Genocide – 2 million dead since 1936, 0.1 million from violence, 1.9 million from war-, expulsion- and occupation-derived deprivation; 7 million refugees; 4.1 million Occupied Palestinians deprived of ALL the human rights listed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights ; 6 million Palestinians forbidden to even live in the homeland continuously inhabited by their forbears to the very dawn of agrarian civilization; 0.9 million Palestinian children confined without charge or trial to what the Catholic Church and many others have described as Israel’s Gaza Concentration Camp for the asserted “crime” of being Indigenous Palestinians living in a tiny, remorselessly Zionist-bombed patch of Palestine.

50,000 phone numbers worldwide on list linked to Zionist spyware

WASHINGTON: A Zionist firm accused of supplying spyware to governments has been linked to a list of tens of thousands of smartphone numbers, including those of activists, journalists, business executives and politicians around the world, according to reports.

The NSO Group and its Pegasus malware – capable of switching on a phone’s camera or microphone, and harvesting its data – have been in the headlines since 2016, when researchers accused it of helping spy on a dissident in the United Arab Emirates.

Sunday’s revelations – part of a collaborative investigation by The Washington Post, The Guardian, Le Monde and other media outlets – raise privacy concerns and reveal the far-reaching extent to which the private firm’s software could be misused.

The leak consists of more than 50,000 smartphone numbers believed to have been identified as connected to people of interest by NSO clients since 2016, the news organizations said, although it was unclear how many devices were actually targeted or surveilled.

NSO has denied any wrongdoing, labelling the allegations “false”.

On the list were 15,000 numbers in Mexico – among them reportedly a number linked to a murdered reporter – and 300 in India, including politicians and prominent journalists.

Last week, the Indian government – which in 2019 denied using the malware to spy on its citizens, following a lawsuit – reiterated that “allegations regarding government surveillance on specific people has no concrete basis or truth associated with it whatsoever”.

The Post said a forensic analysis of 37 of the smartphones on the list showed there had been “attempted and successful” hacks of the devices, including those of two women close to Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was murdered in 2018 by a Saudi hit squad.

Among the numbers on the list are those of journalists for Agence France-Presse, The Wall Street Journal, CNN, The New York Times, Al Jazeera, El Pais, the Associated Press, Le Monde, Bloomberg, The Economist, and Reuters, The Guardian said.

The use of the Pegasus software to hack the phones of Al Jazeera reporters and a Moroccan journalist has been reported previously by Citizen Lab, a research center at the University of Toronto, and Amnesty International. Forbidden Stories, a Paris-based journalism nonprofit, and Amnesty originally shared the leak with the newspapers.

Pocket spy

The Post said the numbers on the list were unattributed, but other media outlets participating in the project were able to identify more than 1,000 people in more than 50 countries.

They included several members of Arab royal families, at least 65 business executives, 85 human rights activists, 189 journalists and more than 600 politicians and government officials – including heads of state, prime ministers and cabinet ministers.

Many numbers on the list were clustered in 10 countries: Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Hungary, India, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Morocco, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Pegasus is a highly invasive tool that can switch on a target’s phone camera and microphone, as well as access data on the device, effectively turning a phone into a pocket spy.

In some cases, it can be installed without the need to trick a user into initiating a download.

NSO issued a denial on Sunday that focused on the report by Forbidden Stories, calling it “full of wrong assumptions and uncorroborated theories,” and threatening a defamation lawsuit.

“We firmly deny the false allegations made in their report,” NSO said.

It said it was “not associated in any way” with the Khashoggi murder, adding that it sells “solely to law enforcement and intelligence agencies of vetted governments”.

Roughly three dozen journalists at Qatar’s Al-Jazeera network had their phones targeted by Pegasus malware, Citizen Lab reported in December, while Amnesty said in June the software was used by Moroccan authorities on the cellphone of Omar Radi, a journalist convicted over a social media post.

Founded in 2010 by Zionists Shalev Hulio and Omri Lavie, NSO Group is based in the hi-tech hub of Herzliya, near Tel Aviv. – AFP

Israel fakes another video of “Hamas rockets” next to Gaza homes

Screenshot of tweet

The Israeli military tweeted a video containing footage it falsely claimed showed Hamas rockets near civilian homes in Gaza.

The tweet was later deleted.

Israel always claims to do everything possible to avoid civilian casualties when it is bombing Gaza, as it has been doing with savage intensity for more than a week.
Yet day after day, Israel has slaughtered men, women and children in their homes, regularly wiping out whole families.The 200 people killed in Gaza since the Israeli attack began more than a week ago include 59 children and 35 women.So the dilemma for Israel is how to square this horrific reality with its propaganda about protecting civilians.

The solution is to lie and blame the victims.

Israel’s habitual claim is that Hamas and other Palestinian resistance organizations use Palestinian civilians as “human shields,” by routinely firing rockets from residential areas, or even the rooftops of homes.

Israel got caught lying again after it posted a video on Twitter on Saturday titled “Hamas’ Use of Human Shields, Explained.”

The tweet also says: “Israel fights to protect its civilians. Hamas uses civilians to protect itself.”

Old video, fake rockets

But as Raphael Satter, a Reuters journalist observed, the video included “footage of a 2018 Israeli training exercise presented as if it had been shot recently in Gaza.”

The footage appears to show a truck carrying missiles near homes through a narrow residential street. 

But as Aric Toler, a researcher with Western-government funded think tank Bellingcat observed, the truck with the missiles appears to have been a decoy being used as part of an Israeli training exercise.

And it was not filmed in Gaza.

The image is taken from a video filmed more than two years ago in the village of Abu Snan in the Galilee – about as far as you can get from Gaza within Israel.

Cropped footage of the trucks from the 2018 video was used in the now-deleted Israeli army video posted on Saturday. 

The Electronic Intifada was able to view the video in an archived copy in the WayBack Machine.

The 2018 video was posted on an Israeli Facebook page on 25 November 2018.

A caption in Hebrew says, “Trucks with ‘missiles’ took a wrong turn and entered the village of Abu Snan in the north.”

A voice on the video, that of the Arabic-speaking child who apparently filmed it, calls out, “Look guys, the rockets are here.” He sounds excited by the unusual scene.

The visibility of yellow Israeli license plates on parked cars is another clear giveaway that the video was not shot in Gaza.

Israel’s Mako news website reported on 24 November 2018 how Israeli motorists had been surprised to see a truck apparently carrying missiles on a highway near the central Israeli town of Kiryat Gat, heading towards the north.

The report includes a video apparently filmed by an Israeli motorist showing the same sort of decoy truck visible in the Facebook video.

With its lie busted, the Israeli army deleted its tweet, though an archived copy remains online.

Although the video may not play in the archived version for some readers, it had apparently garnered 146,000 views before the Israeli army deleted it.

 

Lies and fabrications

This latest fabrication is not Israel’s first during its current attack on Gaza.

Last week, Ofir Gendelman, a spokesperson for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, posted a video on Twitter claiming to show Hamas firing rockets from next to an apartment building in Gaza.

But Gendelman deleted the tweet after Twitter labeled it “manipulated media.” It had in fact been a video filmed in Syria and first posted on YouTube in 2018.

Also last week on CGTN television, I debunked the lie told by a member of Israel’s far-right Yamina party that Hamas was firing rockets from the roofs of residential buildings:

Judaism And Zionism Are Not The Same Thing

The Palestinian Rabbi’s 1947: “We wish to express our definite opposition to a Jewish State in any part of Palestine.” These Palestinian Jews were kicked out of office by the invading Zionist army.

We would like to take a few minutes of your time to prevent you from making a terrible mistake that may have disastrous results for many.

You have always without a doubt heard and read much about the political crises in the Middle East in which the State of Israel plays a central role.

This is, in fact, an ongoing series of crises with potential to bring the greatest misfortune on the entire world.

Tragically many believe that Zionism and Judaism are identical.

Thus they conclude that the entire Jewish people is responsible for the actions of the Zionist government and the world crises which emanates from it. This is a Grave Error!

The truth is that the Jewish faith and Zionism are two very different philosophies.

They are as opposite as day and night. The Jewish people have existed for thousands of years.

In their two thousand years of Divinely decreed exile no Jew ever sought to end this exile and establish independent political sovereignty anywhere.

The people’s sole purpose was the study and fulfillment of the Divine commandments of the Torah.

The Zionist movement created the Israeli state.

The latter is a persuasion less than one hundred years old.

Its essential goal was and is to change the nature of the Jewish people from that of a religious entity to a political movement.

From Zionism’s inception the spiritual leaders of the Jewish people stood in staunch opposition to it.

To this day Torah Jewry remains forever loyal to its faith. Zionists want the world to believe that they are the representatives of the entire Jewish people. This is false!

The Jewish people never chose them as their leaders.

Semites are generally swarthy people. The European Ashkenazim Jews are not from the Hebrew stock!

The Zionists have deceived many well meaning Jewish people via terror, trickery and false propaganda.

They have at their disposal the use of a nearly universally subservient media.

Whoever attempts to criticize them puts his livelihood and, at times, his very life in danger.

However, despite the media blackout and easy resort to terror the simple truth remains unrefuted and irrefutable: ACCORDING TO THE JEWISH FAITH AND TORAH LAW THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE FORBIDDEN TO HAVE THEIR OWN STATE WHILE AWAITING THE MESSIANIC ERA!

The Creator gave us the Holy Land thousands of years ago. Yet, when we sinned, He took it away and sent us into exile.

Since that time our task is to wait for Him to send the Messiah.

At that time, the Creator alone, without any human being lifting a hand or saying a word, will bring us together and take us out of exile.

He will likewise establish universal peace among all mankind and all will serve Him in good will.

Some religious Jews, confused by Zionist propaganda quote Biblical verses that state that G-d gave the children of Israel the Holy Land.

They overlook, unfortunately, those verses which say that He took it away due to our sins.

They further ignore those prophecies which explicitly describe the last exile’s conclusion as a Divine, not a human process.

The Creator has commanded every Jew to follow the ways of peace and to be loyal to the country where he lives.

Torah true Jewry waits patiently for the Messianic redemption. They have nothing to do with any kind of pseudo “Jewish State” and its aggressions against other peoples.

They have a deep sympathy for the plight of the Palestinians who have suffered the most from Zionism’s false teachings and barbaric actions.

The Zionist state is not a Jewish state.

The Zionists alone are the only ones responsible for their actions.

Authentic Jewry has and will continue to oppose the very existence of this blasphemous state.

May all mankind witness the true redemption.

Do We Really Know What A Jew Is?

The Zionist power over the U.S. Government in Washington, D.C. stems from the Zionist/Bolsheviks centered in New York City.

It is from New York that orders go out to the vast Zionist network all over the U.S. — a network that influences the economic and political affairs of not only our federal government, but nearly all, if not all, state governments, and to a great extent the governments of the larger and even medium sized cities.

This power of the Zionist/Bolshevik Jews over the U.S. makes the New York leg of the New York/Moscow/Tel Aviv Triangle a tremendous influence over communist policies.”–Jewish author Jack Bernstein

The Zionist terror organization survives by using Jewish people as a shield.  The strategy has worked so well, that for most people in the western world, even thinking about whether they oppose or support Zionism makes them uncomfortable. 

“We do have a problem and that is that the Zionists have made themselves to appear as the representatives and spokespeople of all Jews and, with their actions, arouse animosity against all Jews…

The whole idea of a Zionist State is a flawed concept and is the underlying cause of the strife in the Middle East.

As Jews, we are ashamed of our brethren who have followed the Zionist path and we wish to state that Zionists do not in any way represent the Jewish People as they would like to have the world believe.”
– Rabbi Ahron Cohen

“Satan is constantly changing his disguise and sending his agents to entrap the Jewish masses in his net, so that they throw the yoke of the Torah off their necks.
The names of these agents change every few generations. Today, they are called “Zionists”.    – Rabbi Yisroel Hager    
 
Jews who are aware of the truth about Zionism are completely opposed to it.    


Even at the highest levels, the builders of the Zionist machine are under the deception that the world will be theirs.
It won’t.

They will be discarded just like everyone else they are using. Those at the top of the pyramid are useful idiots too.

The biggest mistake people often make, once they discover what is being done to the world, is to begin attacking Jews.
Justice can never be achieved by perpetrating injustice.

Jews are not responsible for the attacks on every nation and the overthrow of every government, Zionists are.
There are over 15 million  Jewish people in the world, and only a few thousand involved in the Zionist plot.
And essentially fewer than 300 who know the full scope of it.
The Zionists no more represent Jews than Black Lives Matter represents black people, than ISIS represents Syrian people, than the CIA represents Americans, or any other small Marxist terrorist organization represents any race or any nation of people. 
For decades religious Jewish leaders have been trying to alert the world to what is taking place, but they are given no platform, and no one can hear them. Zionists own nearly all global media.
Many groups such as True Torah Jews and Jewish Voice for Peace are actively working to raise awareness and expose the Zionist lies and tyranny.
Jewish people are among the primary victims of the Zionist plot and have suffered for centuries from deliberately created anti-Jewish sentiment against them, caused by Zionist usurious banking practices and subversion of governments, or caused deliberately by Zionist direct attacks on Jewish people such as terrorist bombings  or the murder of Jewish political opponents like anti-Zionist Yaakov Yisrael Dehaan.

In the words of Zionist leader Yitzhak Greenbaum:
“One cow in Palestine is worth more than all the Jews in Europe.  I think it is necessary to state here – Zionism is above everything.”
The Big Lie that the Zionist machine uses to cover up the hundreds of millions of murders and countless other crimes it has committed, is that anyone who notices is an anti-semite, a “racist,” or “bigot.”  
Since a bigot is defined as “a person unreasonably attached to a belief based on prejudice, or a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudice,” this means that, in fact, those who DO NOT oppose Zionism are bigots, as they blindly and without knowledge or information support the most violent and ruthless terror organization in world history.
The Zionist terror organization survives by using Jewish people as a shield.  The strategy has worked so well, that for most people in the western world, even thinking about whether they oppose or support Zionism makes them uncomfortable. 
Blind support for “Israel” has been portrayed as the epitome of virtue and most people have never spent even a single minute considering why they support “Israel,” how that support came to be, or who exactly “Israel” is in the first place. 
Opposition to Israel is portrayed as the ultimate form of hatred and injustice.  
They will censor this site and accuse it of racism, because in typical Marxist-speak the exact opposite is true. The purpose of this site is to end the worldwide oppression of all people on earth, including Jews by the world’s only terrorist organization.

Holocaust survivors compare Zionist policies to those of the Nazis

“The Zionist movement of Europe played a very important role in the mass extermination of Jews. Indeed, I believe that without the cooperation of Zionists it would have been a much more difficult task….

[The Zionists] said that we are not Czechoslovaks or we are not Germans, we are not French, we are Jews and we must, as Jews, go back to our country, to Israel or to Palestine and found our state …

Then came the Nuremberg Law, which was a law, issued by a nominally civilized state [Nazi Germany], which said that Jews do not belong to Europe, but to Palestine. …

So, on one platform, Nazism and Zionism had something in common: they both preached that Jews don’t belong to Europe but to Palestine. …

And naturally, the Germans said: ‘You see the Jews may not trust us but they will trust you’, to the Zionists, ‘because they have seen that they have always told them actually the truth: that you belong to Palestine, that you are a foreign element here.’ … 

And so the Jewish councils were preferably selected from well-known Zionists. And, because the well-known Zionists became respectable, many Jews who were respectable anyway became Zionists.

So they formed Jewish councils from a Zionist core, fortified by respectable members of society: top lawyers, top business people, top economists and that was the Jewish councils. …

They were promised by the Germans or by the local fascist government to be protected from any discrimination because they are needed for administering of the Jewish affairs. …

So you had here already a Zionist clique enforced by money of big Jewish businessmen who would be prepared to go along with the discrimination against the masses of the Jewish population which were neither rich nor Zionist, and in other words did not belong to the clique. …

One or two masterminds?

So I didn’t trust them in spite of the fact that the Nazis gave them the right after the Nuremberg Laws.

I considered them plain fascists and I considered them from the very start as despicable creatures who deal with the fascists and take profit out of it in order to be exempted from discrimination conducted against the others. …

So I didn’t trust the Nazis any more or any less than the Jewish Zionist councils.

Indeed, I realized that the Zionists and the Nazis are approximately identical enemies of mine who have got both one thing in common, to get me out from home with 25 kilos to an unknown place and to leave my mother completely defenseless at home. …

The young people, the core of resistance, is always 16 to 30. Every soldier knows that they are the best material for fighting. … I was flabbergasted by the fact that the Zionists who pretended to be the protectors of the Jews, the first thing which they agreed to was to let go away a potential core of resistance who could in the last resort protect the families with force if necessary. …

Billy Wilder, Hollywood Jewish director on location accidentally steps in while the cameras were rolling.

I as a Holocaust survivor cannot live with the fact that the State of Israel is imprisoning an entire people behind fences. …  It’s just immoral.

What happened to me in the Holocaust wakes me up every night and I hope we don’t do the same thing to our neighbours. … [I compare] what I went through during the Holocaust to what the besieged Palestinian children are going through.

“Sometime after [1956] I heard a news item about Israelis herding Palestinians into settlement camps.

I just could not believe this. Weren’t the Israelis also Jews?

Hadn’t we – they – just survived the greatest pogrom of our history? Weren’t [concentration] camps – often euphemistically called ‘settlement camps’ by the Nazis – the main feature of this pogrom?

Zionist terrorist soldiers have freedom of movement, they go into Gaza and shoot children for sport with no repercussions. The civilians get caught off guard and have nowhere to run.

How could Jews in any measure do unto others what had been done to them? How could these Israeli Jews oppress and imprison other people? In my romantic imagination, the Jews in Israel were socialists and people who knew right from wrong.

This was clearly incorrect. I felt let down, as if I was being robbed of a part of what I had thought was my heritage. …

I have to say to the Israeli government, which claims to speak in the name of all Jews, that it is not speaking in my name.

I will not remain silent in the face of the attempted annihilation of the Palestinians; the sale of arms to repressive regimes around the world; the attempt to stifle criticism of Israel in the media worldwide; or the twisting of the knife labelled ‘guilt’ in order to gain economic concessions from Western countries.

Of course, Israel’s geo-political position has a greater bearing on this, at the moment. I will not allow the confounding of the terms ‘anti-Semitic’ and ‘anti-Zionist’ to go unchallenged.”

Spielberg has a talent of projecting Zionism onto Nazism. This is occupied Palestine today.

“I am pained by the parallels I observe between my experiences in Germany prior to 1939 and those suffered by Palestinians today.

I cannot help but hear echoes of the Nazi mythos of ‘blood and soil’ in the rhetoric of settler fundamentalism which claims a sacred right to all the lands of biblical Judea and Samaria.

The various forms of collective punishment visited upon the Palestinian people – coerced ghettoization behind a ‘security wall’; the bulldozing of homes and destruction of fields; the bombing of schools, mosques, and government buildings; an economic blockade that deprives people of the water, food, medicine, education and the basic necessities for dignified survival – force me to recall the deprivations and humiliations that I experienced in my youth.

This century-long process of oppression means unimaginable suffering for Palestinians.”

Identity Thieves: the Zionist Campaign

Welcome to the Israeli Army Melting Pot, the greatest spiritual equalizer that the world has ever seen.

The early Zionist leaders created the state of Israel with the goal of eradicating religion and transforming “Jews” into Israeli nationalists.

Until very recently Hareidi (ultra-orthodox) Jews were exempt from mandatory service.

They were able to remain true to their faith and traditions without fear of legal repercussions.

Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Dushinsky, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem (1867-1948): “We furthermore wish to express our definite opposition to a Jewish state in any part of Palestine.”  The United Nations Special Committee in Palestine Wednesday, July 16, 1947 by the Chief Rabbis of the Ashkenasic Jewish Community, Rav Yosef Zvi Dushinsky and Rav Zelig Ruven Bengis of blessed memory, taken from the United Nations Trusteeship Library.

Recently that has changed. In 2014 the law exempting Hareidi Jews expired and was not renewed. Even though the IDF had a surplus of soldiers they decided that it was time to call the Orthodox to duty thus finally taking advantage of the opportunity to transform them from from “Jews” to “Israelis”.

The Rothschild Zionists sacrificed European Jewry during WW2 to transfer the surviving  European Jews to Palestine to occupy. Then they occupied the Palestinian Jews.

The transfer to Palestine

Palestinian Muslims and Christians pushed into the sea and transferred out

The Hareidi community has staged a number of peaceful protests and the Israeli police has responded with violence.

Young men are being pulled from their beds in the middle of the night and thrown into military detention centers.

We will continue to assert our right to be conscientious objectors according to Article 18 of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.

We will not give up our faith to serve in your military. We will not offer up our children’s lives on the alter of Zionism. We will protest until the end for our rights as Jews and human beings.

Palestine is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of antiquities, competing with Egypt in the Arab world. At least 22 civilizations have left their mark on Palestine, the first of which were the Canaanites; their presence is still visible today.

Since 1948, successive Israeli governments have paid particular attention to the antiquities that have a distinct Arab and Palestinian identity. Committees of Israeli archaeologists were formed to research in every part of Palestine on which Israel was founded.

The aim remains to create a fake historical narrative by Judaising Palestinian antiquities. Historical monuments in major Palestinian cities, such as Acre, Jaffa, Jerusalem and Tiberias, have not been spared from this process.

Moreover, Israel has used various institutions to Judaise Palestinian fashion through systematic cultural theft and forgery. Even local recipes are not spared.

Israel has participated in international exhibitions to display Palestinian fashion and cuisine labelled as “Israeli”.

This is how Palestine’s heritage and history dating back thousands of years are being stolen by the Israeli occupation and the “mafias” selling invaluable antiquities.

This is happening at a time when Palestinian parties are taking action and calling for the protection of their legacy, history and civilisation.

WATCH: Israeli forces shoot Palestinian ‘for fun’

In this context, studies have indicated that there are over 3,300 archaeological sites in the occupied West Bank alone. A number of researchers confirm that, on average, there is an archaeological site every half a kilometre in Palestine which indicates the true identity and history of the land.

It is important here to mention the devastating effects of the Israeli separation wall on the future of Palestinian antiquities and monuments.

The ongoing building of the wall on Palestinian land in the West Bank will ultimately lead to the annexation of over 50 per cent of the occupied territory. It will also include over 270 major archaeological sites, in addition to 2,000 archaeological and historical locations.

Dozens of historically important sites and monuments have been destroyed in the course of the construction of the wall.

Specialised studies of Palestinian antiquities indicate that, since occupying the West Bank and Gaza Strip in June, 1967, Israel has been able to steal and sell even more Palestinian artefacts from the West Bank.

This phenomenon was exacerbated by the outbreak of the Aqsa Intifada at the end of September 2000.

The Palestinian Authority’s Department of Antiquities and Cultural Heritage has pointed out that more than 500 archaeological sites and more than 1,500 landmarks have been stolen and destroyed by Israeli thieves and the occupation.

It is a simple fact that, as the work of Salman Abu Sitta has demonstrated, more than 500 Palestinian towns and villages have been destroyed and wiped off the map by Israel since 1948. The Department also confirmed that the cultural and economic resources of Palestine continue to be depleted by Israel.

Palestinian studies indicate that the reason for this ongoing Nakba is the collapse of any system to protect Palestinian areas due to Israeli control.

Such protection falls under the direct management of the occupation, which basically means that the Israeli army is free to destroy cultural heritage sites, as has happened in Jerusalem, Nablus, Hebron, Bethlehem, and other Palestinian cities, towns and villages.

Archaeological theft and the violation of Palestinian heritage sites is one of the biggest challenges facing Palestinians as they seek to preserve their culture and physical presence in their homeland, which is threatened by Judaisation and targeted by systematic Israeli policies.

. We need to raise awareness in Palestinian society to confront this new-old challenge imposed by Israel.

We also need to boost our capacity to fight Israel’s theft of our history at the local, regional and international levels. This may be reinforced through Palestine’s full membership in relevant international organizations, including UNESCO.

Cultural diversity in Palestine dates back thousands of years. It is shameful that we are allowing this to be whitewashed out of history as Israel seeks to “prove” its fake narrative of the “Jewish state”, to the exclusion of the indigenous people.

The Neo Anti-Semites

May 27, 2020

“israeli” occupation forces yesterday announced the destruction of ten wells in the town of Az-Zawiya, west of Salfit in the north of the West Bank.

The Palestinian News Agency (Wafa) quoted local sources as saying that occupation forces handed over demolition notices to owners of the water wells in the western region of the town.

The sources pointed out that the wells belong to Maher Qadous, Munir Shamlawi, Rebhi Abu Nabaa, Adnan Ali Hamdan, Nizam Hammouda, Harun Muqadi, Jamal Mosleh, Raji Shakur and Shehadeh Dahbour.

“israel” continues to steal water from the occupied West Bank by curbing Palestinian access to it, while increasing the control illegal Jewish only settlements have over water resources in the area.

The Zionists are the bad guys in every scenario. What kind of people root for them?

In November 1967, Israeli authorities issued Military Order 158, which stated that Palestinians could not construct any new water installation without first obtaining a permit from the Israeli army.

These are nearly impossible to obtain, Amnesty reports. “Palestinians living under Israel’s military occupation continue to suffer the devastating consequences of this order until today.

They are unable to drill new water wells, install pumps or deepen existing wells, in addition to being denied access to the Jordan River and fresh water springs,” the rights group explains.

Adding: “While restricting Palestinian access to water, Israel has effectively developed its own water infrastructure and water network in the West Bank for the use of its own citizens in Israel and in the settlements – that are illegal under international law.”
