Execution of Palestinian Exposes Israel's Military Culture  -  by Jonathan Cook

http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/04/04/execution-of-palestinian-exposes-...

"It might have been a moment that jolted Israelis to their senses. Istead the video of an Israeli soldier shooting dead a young Palestinian man has he lay wounded and barely able to move has only intensified the tribal war-dance of the Israeli public.

This was not a killing in the fog of war, it was a cold-blooded execution. As Amnesty International noted, such an act constitutes a war crime..."

As does the aiding and abetting of such - as Canada does by a variety of means, including Canadian political parties proscribing candidates critical of Israel. Or criminalizing BDS.

Other examples Barak cited included a proposal to lift immunity from MPs accused of supporting terrorism and a bill that would impose Israeli law on Israelis living in the occupied West Bank.

"What has happened is a hostile takeover of the Israeli government by dangerous elements. And it's just the beginning," Barak said.

"This government needs to be brought down before it brings all of us down," the former Israeli PM said, adding that foreign officials he speaks to are no longer supportive of the Jewish state. "There are no serious leaders left in the world who believe the Israeli government."

I think Barak just implied that in relation to Israel our Canadian political class are not serious leaders. Who would have thought it?

Abducted Iranian Diplomats Held in Israeli Jail

By Ian Greenhalgh on June 2, 2016

Israel acting like a terrorist state, why am I not surprised at this report?

Four-captive-Iranians

Yet again, we have Israel behaving with a total disregard for human rights and bereft of any sense of justice. However, do not expect to see any criticism of Israel in the mainstream media, if they even bother to cover this story at all.

Abducted Iranian Diplomats Held in Israeli Jail

According to a recent report in Iran’s Fars News, a Greek prisoner who was recently released from an Israeli jail claims that while in custody he encountered three Iranian diplomats and an Iranian journalist who were also being held.

Upon his release and return to Greece, the former Israeli prisoner informed the Iranian embassy in Athens that the four were being held in Israel.

They were originally kidnapped in July 1982 during the 1982 Lebanon War, when Israeli forces seized southern Lebanon. Their abduction was reportedly carried out by local phalange militia, who were allied with the IDF at the time and who allegedly handed them over to their Israeli allies.

For its part Israel claims the four were executed by the Phalange militia shortly after their abduction.

However, a report first published by the Arabic-language al-Rai al-Youm and reiterated by Fars News lends credence to claims that the four are being held hostage by Israel.

According to Palestinian activist Ahmad Habibollah Abu Hesham, who had been detained for many years in Israeli jails, the four Iranians were being held in Israel’s Atlit prison.......

......you just have to wonder how long before the publishing of this report will be considered a crime in Canada......

It seems that the Israelis themselves are anti-Semitic according to the new definition of that term. I miss the days when I could march in pro-Palestine marches to end the occupation beside sitting MP's like Libby and Bill. The NDP is out to lunch on this human rights issue and is supporting the abusers not  the victims.

Quote:

But in the space of two days, new critics emerged from within the highest positions of Israel state power. Moshe Ya'alon -- until recently the Israeli Defence Minister -- and Major General Yair Golan, the Israeli army's deputy chief of staff, confirmed what many of Israel's most vociferous (and vilified) critics have been saying for years: that Israel is heading down the road of extremism and racism.

Golan issued a warning that linked attitudes and actions in pre-war Germany with trends in Israel today. ''It's scary to see horrifying developments that took place in Europe begin to unfold here,'' he said.

Moshe Ya'alon, then the defence minister, defended Golan. Within three weeks, he was pushed from the defence post and resigned rather than accept another role. Ya'alon too offered a warning about ''phenomena of extremism, violence, and racism in Israeli society that threaten its fortitude.''

How Turkey's Reconciliation Deal with Israel Hurts the Palestinians

http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/07/01/how-turkeys-reconciliation-deal-w...

"The truth however, is that far from helping the Palestinians, Turkey's deal with Israel serves to reinforce the occupation regime in place since the June 1967 Israeli-Arab War.

The mainstream media, as ever, is failing to properly report the signficance of the reconciliation agreement.

While not explicitly mentioned, the agreement will pave the way for Turkey to become a portal for Israeli gas exports to Europe, with a pipeline deal in the works.

But the real meaning of the deal is that Turkey is agreeing to help Israel sustain its illegal blockade of Gaza, thus making itself complicit in Israel's collective punishment of the Palestinians.

Instead of demanding that Israel cease its illegal policy, Turkey has instead acted to legitimize the collective punishment of 1.8 million Gazans..."

Israel Starts Home Demolitions in Syrian Golan, Plans Illegal Annexation, Opens “Corridor” for Syrian Al QaedaBy Dr. Christof LehmannGlobal Research, September 09, 2016nsnbc international 9 September 2016Region: Middle East & North AfricaTheme: Crimes against HumanityLaw and JusticeIn-depth Report: PALESTINESYRIA: NATO'S NEXT WAR?

Israeli occupation authorities in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, on Wednesday, for the first time demolished a home, claiming it was built without permission. The demolition and claims the house was built without permission violates Israel’s obligations under international law, according to which an occupying power must assure that administration in occupied territories adhere, to the greatest possible degree, to the law of the occupied country’s territory.

Israel has, however, enforced new Hebrew as official administrative language, denies building permits and engages in other violations of international law that aim at oppressing the Arab population and culture and Syrian administration in the occupied Golan.

IANAL, but I would assume the burden of proof for a charge like this would be to show that the first wrongful act would not or could not have happened without the second.

Example:  if I drive the getaway car for some bank robbers I'm clearly complicit in that bank robbery.  If I tweet "People should rob more banks because they're stealing OUR money!!" then I'm really not complicit.  That robbery would happen with or without my support.

Netenyahu accuses Palestinians of 'ethnic cleansing'

Quote:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday said the Palestinians wanted to form a state devoid of a Jewish population and termed it "ethnic cleansing", drawing sharp criticism from the United States.

In a video message, Netanyahu said in reference to the removal of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, "The Palestinian leadership actually demands a Palestinian state with one pre-condition: No Jews. There's a phrase for that: It's called ethnic cleansing. And this demand is outrageous."

...Most countries view Israeli West Bank settlements as illegal and an obstacle to peace. Israel rejects this, saying Jews have been living in the territory for thousands of years.

...U.S. officials said the criticism from the U.S. State Department marked the first time it has suggested in public that Israel may be moving towards unlimited settlement expansion on land the Palestinians seek for their state.

The U.S. officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the latest language was unusually strong but reflected a change in tone rather than any major shift in U.S. policy.

Perhaps there's a solution to this. Maybe the Israelis could accept a Palestinian settlement within Israel for every Israeli settlement within Palestine. After all, the Israeli contention is the settlements are not illegal, so why not Palestinians settlements in Israel? How could the Israeli's object to what they themelves feel is both legal and morally acceptable?

Recently checked out Debka, with its fears of the Armies of Hezbollah and Syrian Army on verge of taking full control of the Syrian Golan Heights, parking on the border to Israeli`s Golan occupied Territory...and now Syria claiming they`ve just shot down an Israeli missile and drone over its Golan Heights?

What is going down now?

Why the message from Debka, the Israeli Intelligence site? to push fear in Israel to take the offensive? or is there just a possibility that Hezbollah and Syria, once ISIS and its allies are out, may threaten to retake its Lebanese and Syrian Territory from israel?

Any thoughts?

more...from 21st Century Wire, Vanessa Bealey...

Israel has a history of denying its military losses or downplaying its defeats.  The fact that the Military Command in Syria has made a public statement concerning their air defence reaction against this Israeli incursion into its airspace, particularly over the long disputed Golan Heights, demonstrates that Syria has reached the end of its patience with Israeli aggression and lawlessness.

This is potentially a game-changer.  It is a response to US and Israeli hegemony in the region that cannot be ignored.

from Press TV, Tehran

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over his support for the Tel Aviv regime’s expropriation of Palestinian territories and expansion of illegal settlements across the occupied West Bank.

On Thursday, Ban told the Security Council during a meeting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that Israel’s construction of settlement outposts on land earmarked for a future independent Palestinian state is illegal, and the Israeli military’s control over Palestinian territories must be brought to an end.

“Let me be absolutely clear: settlements are illegal under international law. The occupation, stifling and oppressive, must end,” he said.

............Is the French Governments resolution for a 2 state solution on the table at these meetings?

Will Canada s Parliament censure the UN for this position for their criticism of Israel?

Israël violates the cease-fire in Syria and loses two planesVOLTAIRE NETWORK | 17 SEPTEMBER 2016  +

On 13 September 2016, at 1 a.m., although the cease-fire had just come into force, the Israëli aviation attempted to destroy a combat position in the South of Syria and certain military installations near Damascus.

The Syrian Arab Army fired at and hit the planes with new generation missiles. One of the planes crashed in jihadist-held territory, the other managed to land in Israël.

Tsahal at first denied the two incidents, then recognised having violated Syrian air space and admitted that Syria had fired on their planes.

The available information does not enable us to know exactly what the Israêli planes were (F-15, F-16, or F-35), nor if the missiles were fired by Hezbollah or by the Syrian Arab Army, nor what type of missiles they were or who built them.

Clearly, however, they were new equipment, much more efficient than the older models, and capable of altering the balance of power.

Dermer will presented with the CSP Freedom Flame Award at a dinner scheduled for December 13.

The Southern Policy Law Center notes on its website that the organization "has gone from a respected hawkish think-tank focused on foreign affairs to a conspiracy-oriented mouthpiece for the growing anti-Muslim movement in the United States."

When was Canada aligned with world opinion on Palestinian rights? Canada has always been opposed to Palestinian rights. That has not changed. And to be fair to the Liberal Party, there is no parliamentary party that supports Palestinian rights. If one thinks back, one remembers when the NDP disallowed Paul Manly from running, and summarily tossed any candidate that had expressed at any time, support for Palestinian rights. Even the Green Party, after having voted in favour of BDS, had their leader threaten to quit because of that.

If beating people down was the recipe for leftist uprisings, the whole of Africa, South America, much of Asia and the Middle East would be up in arms as we speak.

Right-wingers winning does not motivate nor energize the left. What it does is convince the left they're finished. What they need more than anything is a victory, a sign that more victories can be won. Where that's going to come from in the USA is a question with no immediate answer.
