"with that 'we' should be satisfied with what 'we' have stolen and just surrender our militancy and arrogance unto our belief and the international community as represented through the United Nations that mankind, like "us", is inherently good, forego calling this place what we'd like and become decent, human-loving beings who pray that those against whom 'we' have transgressed forgive 'us' and let Us all work together to show the world how Hell can, only by the hand of man (believing in one or more god or not), be transformed to Heaven on Earth.

We Jews have a secret weapon.’”

He said he asked her what that secret weapon was.

Burning Palestinian Olive Trees - fire set by Israeli Settlers.

At one time the Jewish community had fierce proponents of justice in their pulpits. Then a strange thing happened. The date usually given is June 1967, the 6 Day War when Israel easily defeated the Egyptian army. Of course the Israeli government, as it usually did and continues to do, prepped the people and the docile public that this would be a fight to the finish, little Israel (always David, not Goliath) was fighting for its survival. It was never the case and was best explained by Mordecai Benton a Knessert member on April 14,1971 :

“The entire story of the extermination was invented in every detail and exaggerated a posterior to justify the annexation of new Arab territory.”

General Matti Peled who was the chief of Logistical Command during the war agreed: the thesis according to which Israel was fighting for her survival was nothing but a bluff which was born and bred after the war….

Israel was never in real danger and there was no evidence that Egypt had any intention of attacking Israel”.

Well Jewish pride exploded all over the world. The bigger story however was the steady erosion of Judaism in favour of rabid Zionist national values. This was also the beginning of the so-called religious Zionism, a movement which arrived just in time as political Zionism was beginning to lose its lustre and its moral steam—because the world began to finally understand that the dark underbelly was the oppression of another people, the Palestinians whose lands were stolen and were living in misery in refugee camps. --http://www.unjppi.org/christian-zionism.html

...The corruption of Judaism, as a religion of universal values, through its politicization by Zionism and by the replacement of dedication to Israel for dedication to God and the moral law, is what has alienated so many young Americans who, searching for spiritual meaning in life, have found little in the organized Jewish community.” Having witnessed the war on Lebanon (2006) and three punishing assaults on the civilians of Gaza Brownfeld wrote in 2014, ”What we are witnessing today, synagogues flying Israeli flags, programs urging American Jews to immigrate to Israel, their real homeland, is a form of idolatry, making the sovereign state of Israel the object of worship, rather than God.

"The Zionist vision was born out of the total rejection of this caricature. Jews would cease dealing in stocks and shares and money-lending. Jews would till the land with the sweat of their brow, do productive manual work, reject all kinds of parasitic speculations. This was considered such a high ideal that it justified even the displacement of the indigenous Arab population.

And here we are, a state following the orders of an international casino mogul whose line of business is perhaps the most unproductive in the cosmos. Sad.

“Dialogue” isn’t enough to address the Israel-Palestine issue: Another prominent academic organization endorses a boycott of Israeli institutions and support of BDS

The American Anthropological Association has taken up BDS as a human rights issue DAVID PALUMBO-LIU TUESDAY, NOV 24, 2015 02:57

This past Friday, the American Anthropological Association, with more than 10,000 members, became the largest U.S. academic organization to endorse a boycott of Israeli institutions and to affirm the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement at an annual meeting. The resolution will be voted on by the full membership this spring. The results of the vote on Friday — 1,040 for, 136 against ... Notably, another resolution, critical of Israel but condemning a boycott on the grounds that it amounted to a “refusal to engage in a productive dialogue,” failed spectacularly, with just 196 in favor as compared to 1,173 against.

These two resolutions clearly stake out the two major options for academics and non-academics alike who are concerned about the Israeli occupation and the policies of the State of Israel with regard to the Palestinians. ...

The key thing to stress is that BDS is not against dialogue based on an ethical commitment to rights; it is, however, against the false and unethical kind of dialogue that ignores or downplays legitimate claims for rights and in so doing simply creates alibis for the perpetuation of inequality. This distinction holds true whether we are talking about discussions between heads of states, or between artists, writers, scholars and students.

Since the AAA vote has dramatically articulated these two opposing positions with regard to the capacity of “dialogue” to address the issue of Israel-Palestine, it is critical to be aware of what BDS actually is and what it offers. For it is the single most powerful and effective nonviolent force working for one of the most important human rights causes in the world.

At its base BDS is in fact a human rights movement:

On July 9 2005, a year after the International Court of Justice’s historic advisory opinion on the illegality of Israel’s Wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT), a clear majority of Palestinian civil society called upon their counterparts and people of conscience all over the world to launch broad boycotts, implement divestment initiatives, and to demand sanctions against Israel, until Palestinian rights are recognised in full compliance with international law. ...

The campaign for boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) is shaped by a rights-based approach and highlights the three broad sections of the Palestinian people: the refugees, those under military occupation in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, and Palestinians in Israel.

The call urges various forms of boycott against Israel until it meets its obligations under international law by:

Ending its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands occupied in June 1967 and dismantling the Wall;

Recognizing the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality;

and Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN Resolution 194.

The BDS call was endorsed by more than 170 Palestinian political parties, organizations, trade unions and movements. The signatories represent the refugees, Palestinians in the OPT, and Palestinian citizens of Israel.

I will give here still some more references, which I think are important to read concerning American recent discussions and America's relationship with Israel.

"... there is no denying that religious extremism plays a very significant role in American attitudes toward Israel. Given its importance, this is a remarkably under-discussed phenomenon, mostly because American media figures are very comfortable maligning other countries as being driven by religious fanaticism while ignoring how much their own country is."

---

"Almost half of all Americans want to support Israel even if its interests diverge from the interests of their own country. Only a minority of Americans (47 percent) say that their country should pursue their own interests over supporting Israel’s when the two choices collide."

---

"... it’s certainly worth asking what accounts for this bizarre aspect of American public opinion. The answer should make everyone quite uncomfortable: it’s religious fanaticism. The U.S. media loves to mock adversary nations, especially Muslim ones, for being driven by religious extremism, but that is undeniably a major factor, arguably the most significant one ... " 

The above quotations are from Glenn Greenwald's "Religious Fanaticism is a Huge Factor in Americans’ Support for Israel" in

War and Religion: Don’t Tell Me ‘The Bible Made Me Do It’ By Philip Giraldi  here:

http://www.globalresearch.ca/war-and-religion-dont-tell-me-the-bibl...

Philip Giraldi writes:

" ... the issue of a large portion of the electorate and a majority of the Republican Party regarding Israel as an untouchable in Washington’s fractious politics should be troubling to any American who considers himself to be even vaguely patriotic. Ironically, the evangelicals who bleed for Israel also back the war against terror and the use of torture by a two to one margin, suggesting that it ain’t the New Testament that they have been reading. In my opinion, Bachmann and her millions of clones let their Bibles do their thinking for them, which is perfectly fine as long as they do not demand that a-historical Biblical allegories become the basis for defining United States Foreign Policy...

Hannu, re: IsrealHell in Palestine, ‘ “ Only a minority of Americans (47 percent) say that their country should pursue their own interests over supporting Israel’s when the two choices collide:

 it’s certainly worth asking what accounts for this bizarre aspect of American public opinion. The answer should make everyone quite uncomfortable: it’s religious fanaticism… undeniably a major factor, arguably the most significant one …”  --Glenn Greenwald, The Intercept ‘

In the sense that fascists’ nazi ideology becomes culture is ‘religious ideology’  I may tend to agree with Glenn; however, in the sense that fascist, nationalist, tribalist homicidal militancy can presumably be tapped from a natural source within us all, is a lie, is an interception by deception.  The source within us

 --the precipice over which flows lost forever our hopes, dreams and loves, evaporating into a consciousness, a bubble of delusion that comforts us, aligning us with our corporatUSt$’ propaganda of distraction, misinformation, fundamentally, omission.  Omission of fact, omission of empathy, omission of justice,  omission of logic, omission of truth …missions of lies, mission of justUS—

is the success, the product of, the creation of nationalUSt$ propaganda that has, for all practical purposes, a “neo-con”, i.e., zionazim, core.

Hannu, thanks for the link to Philip Giraldi’s writing: Traditional conservative friends of mine now rarely refer to Republicans without using the preceding descriptor “batshit ignorant.” They are onto something. ….Michelle Bachmann’s discovery that Iran’s nuclear weapons program actually began in the seventh century will surprise many but it is reassuring to also learn from her that

' The world is embracing degeneracy [and]…we have very little time…left before the second return of Christ. That’s good news! '

Fortunately for Bachmann someone is actually doing something about it ...Republicans in Congress and possibly also in control of the White House after 2016 will actually do what they are threatening to do... constitute a war policy. Such a war would by both definition and geography be Armageddon, which means it might be coming a whole lot sooner than most people think, suggesting that Bachmann might just be right. Larison argues that hostility to Iran is so widespread in the Republican Party at all levels that it has become dogma ..."  

yet "it really doesn’t matter what Congress and a new president do because the P5+1 agreement with Tehran will be made, if final negotiations are successful, with multiple parties who can make irrelevant the possible continuation of sanctions by Washington."

UN votes in favor of Palestine resolution

The United Nations Economic and Social Council has voted in favor of a resolution on the "economic and social repercussions of the Israeli occupation on the Palestinian people's living conditions in the occupied territories."

On Monday (20July2015), 42 countries voted in favor of the resolution, which was opposed by the United States and Australia. Panama and Honduras abstained.

Palestine Permanent Observer to the United Nations, Ambassador Riyad Mansour, said during a statement before the Council that "the Palestinian people live in dire conditions under the Israeli occupation because of the oppressive, destructive and colonial policies which Israel, the occupying power, continues to practice in a deliberate, systematic and serious violation of the law, including international humanitarian law and international human rights law, and with complete impunity from punishment."

Hundreds of Israelis join protest to save Bedouin village on brink of demolition

http://ow.ly/Q5aXD

For Palestinian-Bedouins living in the south Hebron hills under the threat of demolition and expulsion, victories are rare. Yet residents from the tin and tarp village of Susiya are uncharacteristically optimistic that they will receive a reprieve from the impending demolition of their village that is scheduled to take place before August 3rd.

The tiny hamlet of no more than 350 residents has managed to garner international headlines over the recent week, raising the issue of Israeli demolitions in Area C of the West Bank, the Oslo-delineated section of the occupied Palestinian territory under full Israeli control. In this region building permits are scarce, 98% of requests are rejected according to the Israeli planning rights organization Bimkom. And the consequence for constructing homes without a permit in this area is demolition.

Logically Illogical **

Of course #IsrealHell wants 'PEACE' in Palestine.

This 'PIECE' this 'PIECE'

this 'PIECE' this 'PIECE' this 'PIECE'

this 'PIECE' and ahhh that 'PIECE'

of land from  West Bank, Gaza, Jerusalem, Golan Heights, Jordan, Syria

Lebanon and Sinai 

for now
