The Face Of John Bolton
By Brother Nathanael Kapner March 31, 2018 ©
COLD, CALLOUS, CALCULATING, with an aspect of vicious intent, the study of John Bolton’s face leaves one with a sense of edginess.
Coupling this with his pursuit of committing more war crimes by the US in pursuance of Jewry’s interests (not America’s), the study of John Bolton’s scowl proffers an emblem of America’s enslavement to Jews.
Take another look at Bolton. (The mug shots of criminals offer a happier presentation):
What do we see?
Hostility, Vengefulness, Mania, Arrogance, Nastiness, Insolence, and Cheekiness.
Through the looking glass of a matzah ball, Bolton’s quirks fit right into Jewry’s agenda.
Bolton’s hostility, for instance, will be channeled by Jews into malice toward Iran…which poses NO threat to America. Iran poses a threat to Israel for being opposed to Zionist expansion and its malignant actions toward the Palestinians.
What of it? Why should Israel’s adversaries be ours? Why should Israel’s hysterics become our neurosis?
There is NO END to Jewry’s antagonists. Should America be forever caught in Jewry’s web of confrontation and enmity?
That’s where Bolton’s insolence comes in.
Jews will direct his impudence toward ignoring every single argument why America should NOT entangle itself in Israel’s complaints, squawks, and eternal whines.
Surely, this is why countless Jews are donors of Bolton’s Super Pac. One glance unveils a Guest List to a Bar Mitzvah. (A bloody Bar Mitzvah.)
Names like MOSKOWITZ, SINGER, FRIEDBERG, MARCUS, LEVY, and KADISH, tell a tale of Jew money for more wars for IsraHell.
A great man once said, “the Jews are our misfortune.” Their shills are ten times worse.

I am glad that you exposed “John Bolton” for who he is!
He is nothing more than “A SHILL FOR ISRAHELL”!
The LORD Yahshua stated that their house was left unto them desolate, and it has been ever since they cried, “His Blood be upon us and upon our children!!”
All of the Jewish Zionist Shills need and must be exposed!
The LORD GOD Almighty do Great and Mighty things in our lives and midst!
God bless you, dear +BN
I had no idea that Bolton had his own super-PAC. It certainly does read like a guest list to a bloody Bar Mitzvah with all those big-money Jew names.
Wow! What a stunning visual study of an warmongering neocon sourpuss, and the impact all those photos of his sour visage in different poses makes.
Crikey! Bolton’s face is more puckery than drinking straight vinegar.
More ‘evangelical’ Protestants taking it up their backsides for Jews and Israel and all the while saying, “May I have more, please, Sir”.
Keep spreading those cheeks and open up your collective mouths, and bend over, Zio-Protestants.
Gee, I think Bolton seems like a real nice guy with a good sense of humor and a lot of intelligent concern for the affairs our country.
He seems like a good choice to me. I have no fear that he will lead us into war, but believe he will tell us the truth about the players in the world today and give us good advice.
With all due respect Brother Nathanael, I think you are misunderstanding him.
Are you JEWishhhhh? +bn
A LUMP OF FOUL DEFORMITY.
A vile, sneering, money grubbing, warmongering beast of Satan.
Dear God, please smite down this unclean spawn of Beelzebub, and cast him into the Lake of Fire.

Israeli Jews are rejoicing that the IDF has gotten their Zeta-male mojo back, and can now stand up to the threat of 3 year old toddlers.
Ma’an News Agency - Palestine: On Land Day, Israeli forces kill 14 Palestinians, injure hundreds more in Gaza
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Israeli forces shot dead 14 Palestinians and injured over a 1,000 more along the Gaza border on Friday, as thousands of Palestinians demonstrated in “The Great March of Return” on the 42nd anniversary of Land Day.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that 14 Palestinians were killed on Friday. They were identified as:
Mohammad Kamel Najjar
Wahid Nasrallah Abu Samour
Mahmoud Abu Muammar
Mohammad Abu Amro
Amhad Ibrahim Odah
Ibrahim Abu Shaer
Abd al-Fattah Bahjat Abd al-Nabi
Abd al-Qader al-Hawajri
Sari Walid Abu Odah
Hamdan Ismail Abu Amsha
Bader Fayek al-Sabbagh
The ministry added that 1,272 Palestinians were injured. While the majority suffered from severe tear-gas inhalation, tens of Palestinians were injured with live ammunition, some critically.
The ministry called on Palestinians across Gaza to donate blood at hospitals.
Leading up to the march, the Israeli army released a statement saying it had declared the border area along Gaza a “closed military zone,” meaning that any Palestinian who got close to the border fence could risk getting shot.
The Israeli army released statements on Twitter describing the protests as “violent riots.”
“17,000 Palestinians are rioting in 5 locations along the Gaza Strip security fence. The rioters are rolling burning tires and hurling firebombs & rocks at the security fence & IDF troops, who are responding w riot dispersal means and firing towards main instigators,” the statement said.
Despite the Israeli army’s claims, Palestinian activists and leaders in the Gaza Strip have maintained that the “March of Return” was organized as a massive non-violent, weeks-long protest advocating for the return of Palestinian refugees to their original homelands in historic Palestine, now present day Israel.
Leading up to Friday, the first official day of the march — which will continue until the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, or catastrophe, in May — Palestinians set up tents along the border with Gaza, where protesters plan to stay until the Nakba anniversary.
There is no doubt some angry young rock-throwing, tire burning, gas cannister-kicking, Palestinian males in various parts of the West Bank and urban parts of Gaza, but I have yet to find one picture or video at the Gaza separation barrier of anyone at the peaceful Great March of Return protest doing what the IDF claims:
“17,000 Palestinians are rioting in 5 locations along the Gaza Strip security fence.
“The rioters are rolling burning tires and hurling firebombs & rocks at the security fence & IDF troops, who are responding w riot dispersal means and firing towards main instigators”.
Maybe there will be photos or videos posted later that show this so-called rioting. But of all the claims the IDF is making about the people at the barrier, the only one I can see as happening is the IDF using “riot dispersal means” on a peaceful people with nothing else in their hands but the Palestinian flag, firing off tear gas canisters like a shower of popcorn.
Please pray for these brave people of Palestina, the standing, the injured, and the slain, may they rest in peace.
The Palestinians are storming the very Gates of Hell armed only with their national flag.
The Palestinian people raised it as the flag of the Arab National movement in 1917. In 1947, the Arab Ba’ath Party interpreted the flag as a symbol of the liberation and unity of the Arab nation.
The Palestinian people readopted the flag at the Palestinian conference in Gaza in 1948.
They are doing it for us.
The Gates of Hell will not prevail.
US National Security Advisor John Bolton Backs Terrorists
Author: Tony Cartalucci
Talk surrounding US President Donald Trump’s move to appoint John Bolton as his new National Security Advisor has focused on Bolton’s role in promoting the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq and the profound contrast his appointment signifies in light of President Trump’s 2016 campaign promises to “drain the swamp.”
However, Bolton’s appointment carries with it greater implications both to those apparently criticizing him as well as those attempting to promote him.
Bolton has – for years – lobbied for a terrorist organization guilty of kidnapping and killing both US service members as well as US civilian contractors, along with an untold number of Iranian civilians and politicians in a campaign of terror that has stretched over several decades and continues today.
Worst of all, the terrorist organization Bolton lobbied for was literally listed on the US State Department’s Foreign Terrorist Organizations list during his lobbying activities – in direct violation of US counter-terrorism laws.
That organization – Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) and its political front, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) – has since been delisted as of 2012.
However, the organization was delisted not because it has fully given up armed terrorism, but because the US has planned since at least as early as 2009 – according to Washington’s own policy papers – to use MEK as armed proxies against the nation of Iran.
MEK are Terrorists, Even According to Their US Sponsors
Despite claims by a growing army of MEK advocates spanning various social media platforms, MEK is without doubt a dangerous terrorist organization. Even those seeking to sponsor MEK as a militant proxy against Iran have admitted as much.
In the 2009 Brookings Institution policy paper, “Which Path to Persia? Options for a New American Strategy Toward Iran,” US policymakers openly admitted MEK’s candidacy as a US proxy (emphasis added):
Perhaps the most prominent (and certainly the most controversial) opposition group that has attracted attention as a potential U.S. proxy is the NCRI (National Council of Resistance of Iran), the political movement established by the MEK (Mujahedin-e Khalq).
Critics believe the group to be undemocratic and unpopular, and indeed anti-American.
In contrast, the group’s champions contend that the movement’s long-standing opposition to the Iranian regime and record of successful attacks on and intelligence-gathering operations against the regime make it worthy of U.S. support.
They also argue that the group is no longer anti-American and question the merit of earlier accusations.
Raymond Tanter, one of the group’s supporters in the United States, contends that the MEK and the NCRI are allies for regime change in Tehran and also act as a useful proxy for gathering intelligence.
The MEK’s greatest intelligence coup was the provision of intelligence in 2002 that led to the discovery of a secret site in Iran for enriching uranium.
Brookings policymakers also openly acknowledged that MEK was without doubt a terrorist organization (emphasis added):
Despite its defenders’ claims, the MEK remains on the U.S. government list of foreign terrorist organizations.
In the 1970s, the group killed three U.S. officers and three civilian contractors in Iran. During the 1979-1980 hostage crisis, the group praised the decision to take America hostages and Elaine Sciolino reported that while group leaders publicly condemned the 9/11 attacks, within the group celebrations were widespread.
Undeniably, the group has conducted terrorist attacks—often excused by the MEK’s advocates because they are directed against the Iranian government.
For example, in 1981, the group bombed the headquarters of the Islamic Republic Party, which was then the clerical leadership’s main political organization, killing an estimated 70 senior officials.
More recently, the group has claimed credit for over a dozen mortar attacks, assassinations, and other assaults on Iranian civilian and military targets between 1998 and 2001.
At the very least, to work more closely with the group (at least in an overt manner), Washington would need to remove it from the list of foreign terrorist organizations.”
It should be noted that Brookings’ mention of MEK was made under a chapter titled, “INSPIRING AN INSURGENCY Supporting Iranian Minority and Opposition Groups,” indicating that groups being considered for US sponsorship would undoubtedly be armed and carry out a campaign of violence – if not terrorism, then the full-scale military operations similar US-sponsored militant groups have been carrying out in Syria.
Brookings recommendation that MEK be removed “from the list of foreign terrorist organizations” would eventually be fully realized by 2012 – spearheaded by lobbyists led by prominent US politicians and policymakers including US National Security Advisor John Bolton.
MEK’s Decades of Terrorism and its Future Terrorism…

IF AMERICANS KNEW: MASSACRE IN GAZA (caution: highly disturbing footage)
MASSACRE IN GAZA- over 17 dead and 1,400 wounded
Take action now and tell your Congressperson to stop Israel from shooting unarmed protesters.
tell your Congressional representatives, who voted to give Israel $10 million per day, to demand that Israel stop this massacre immediately!
The Israeli Eunuch Forces are using drones to bombard Palestinian demonstrators with tear gas canisters.
They murdered a poor farmer and wounded his son when they fired a tank shell at them while harvesting crops in their own fields.
Zeta-male snipers bravely shot unarmed people in the back while they were prostrating in prayer.
This is what Israel and the Western media calls “clashes”.
RT: Gaza protest turns deadly as Israel deploys 100 snipers
The Real News:
When Israel invaded Lebanon in 2006, then-Ambassador John Bolton worked to prevent a ceasefire, acting as “an asset for Israel against the interests of his own secretary of state, his own State Department, his own superiors, and his own president,” says Phyllis Bennis of the Institute for Policy Studies
Kenneth Knoppik — “So Bolton committed treason. He gave information about a bill that Condoleezza Rice was trying to pass against Israel to Israel. He put Israel’s interests ahead of his own country. What a piece of s***.”
Learned Hand — “Someone needs to strap John Bolton to the front of a Humvee and drive his ass around Iraq and Syria.”
You and John Bolton should go on a victory tour to Bagdad together.
Operation Enduring Freedom’s has borne so much fruit, that the freedom loving Iraqis want to thank him in person.
It will be like a trip to the afterlife.
C’mon Corbyn are you really the rumored chicken-livered Honourable anti-semitic?
We are waiting in Britain to hear condemnation/damnation of the cowardly Kike KILLERS.
All on yer, hold your heads in SHAME!
You’re either just being sarcastic or joking; or you’re one of those Israeli/Sayan internet trolls.
I think you’re an idiot if it is the latter.
Trump’s campaign speeches on draining the swamp have been followed by adding more swamp creatures such as John Bolton and similar Zionist controlled creatures.
Like with so many other politicians, Trump ended up doing about the opposite of what he said he would do.
It’s clear that the Zionists have hitched Trump to their wagon. Trump is also a swamp creature. But something very different about the Trump administration is how top execs are continually fired and replaced; much more than with other presidents.
Trump gets rid of swamp creatures only to replace them with other swamp creatures, ie - replacing Tillerson with Bolton.
There has never been a president who fired and replaced his people as frequently as Trump does -
The phony Russian collusion investigation headed by Jews Adam Schiff and Rod Rosenstein along with the constant turnover of Trump’s top administrators results in disorder, confusion, and breakdown of continuity.
Trump’s non-stop tweets about the so called Russian Collusion Investigation shows that Trump does a lot of his thinking on that distraction.
All this misdirection and confusion appears to be Zionist tactics to replace what’s good for America with Zionist agenda, wars, support for Israel, and so on.
The fact that the Jews media isn’t constantly screaming about the massive turnover in the Trump administration is another clue that Zionist Jews are behind the turnover and confusion.
We will be sending home 17 Israeli spies in protest against the killings in Palestine.
That will leave just 5123 Mossad in Britain (that we know about)
Just kidding. The Russians have a lot to answer for now. This is beyond the pale. I will be taking a submission to cabinet that this would not happen if Putin wasn’t such a vile dictator.
The realm expects the rest of the “free” world to get behind us once more to n this one.
Julia Scripal has miraculously recovered.
In the first of many interviews she describes how Putin snuck up behind them and splashed something in their faces.
Bolton has been nominated by Netanyahu for a Noble Prize for Peace.
Without his efforts we would have been at war with everyone.
He made us all laugh at a critical time and that broke the tension.
His moustache had something to do with it — and his joking.
This is the real reason he has been appointed to his current position.
In world affairs - so everyone can see the funny side.
We are looking foreword to a repeat.
Teresa May or may not be expelling 17 Israeli Mossad agents over the deaths of 17 pals on or about good Friday.
It depends on whether or not she can find someone to say Putin made them do it.
Diplomacy is critical in this situation she stressed.

Every dollar of “your” 23 trillion $ & counting debt “owed” to the Jew-invented central bank is attributable to Jew instigated wars, war crime profiteering, and the “transfer” of trillions of Jew concocted “money” to theiving Wall Street rats in need of a “bailout” after they couldn’t find anything else to steal.
Bought-off politicos sanction these abominations.
Their explanations, if they bother with any, are jew-controlled media 100% LIES in accordance with their Talmud, Protocols, and Kol Nidre.

RT: RT silenced in Washington DC, Proving FARA Crackdown Not Just Formality
RT programming was removed from its two broadcast frequencies in the DC area. The move proves that claims made by the US government that the channel’s registration as a foreign agent would not affect its work were false.
Audiences in the Washington, DC area are no longer able to tune in to RT’s regular air broadcasts.
Part of the reason is that MHz Networks, a Virginia-based not-for-profit distributor of international entertainment and news programming, decided to auction their licenses to frequencies previously used to broadcast RT, along with a dozen other outlets.
The development was reported by Bloomberg on Thursday, which said that the change will take place on April 1. The auction of licenses happened in March 2017.
RT can now reveal that the channel was in fact dropped by its two signal broadcasters in the area, WNVT and WNVC, on February 2, 2018. This fact was later independently confirmed by MHz Networks through the Associated Press.
Anna Belkina, RT’s chief of communications, said that although the channel is not “at liberty to disclose the details, we know that this decision was linked to RT’s forced registration as a ‘foreign agent’ in the US.” The US Department of Justice forced RT America to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) in 2017.
Belkina added that “it is highly disappointing that despite repeated assurances that FARA status would not impact RT’s reporting and broadcasting capabilities, the registration, in fact, has placed undue burden on multiple areas of RT operations, and pressure on our partners as well, thus unequivocally demonstrating that the spirit of the FARA law is discriminatory even if the letter of that law isn’t.”
RT will continue to be available to viewers in the DC area on other platforms, including satellite.
Commenting on the development, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday that it was part of a “concerning and frightening trend” in the US, which represented a “discriminatory policy towards the media in the United States.”
“We are carefully studying the situation and consider it very dangerous and consequential,” he added.
RT: When FARA is not far enough: US lawmakers invent new ways to brand RT as propaganda (3/21/18)
US lawmakers are suggesting new ways to brand RT and Sputnik as “propaganda,” believing registration as ‘foreign agents’ is not enough. RT is already being censored by having its access to Capitol Hill denied.
Concerned that Americans may be watching “foreign propaganda” (or something different than what is offered on the mainstream media menu) Representatives Seth Moulton (D-MA) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY) introduced the Countering Foreign Propaganda Act.
In practice, it would force RT to do even more reporting to the US government than it currently does under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) and will also force it to broadcast every 30 minutes a message saying it is funded by, and is “under editorial control” of, a foreign government.
Apparently, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will also be the arbiter of who is under editorial control and who is not, because the BBC and France 24 would not be forced to disclose the origins of their funding, according to Foreign Policy (FP) – presumably, because their messaging is simply accidentally, sort of, in line with that of the British and French governments respectively.
RT’s stance on a potential crackdown in the US was summarized by its editor-in-chief, Margarita Simonyan: “When the high from FARA is no longer hard enough, the representatives switch to even harder legislation.”
RT: Palestinians grieve en masse after 17 killed in violent Gaza clashes (VIDEO, PHOTOS)
Thousands of Palestinians have poured onto the streets of Rafah, Gaza and Khan Younis to mourn those killed in clashes with the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).
Palestinian cities and refugee camps were united in their grief after 17 civilians died during ‘Great Return’ demonstrations along the Israeli-Palestine border.
The incident has prompted UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to call for an “independent and transparent” investigation into the violence and the use of military weaponry.
On Friday, Israeli troops clashed with Palestinian protesters in the Gaza Strip, using live rounds, rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse crowds from border fences.
Violence erupted as thousands of Palestinians undertook a march to mark Land Day, a historical show of opposition towards Israeli settlement in the region. Funerals for victims Ibrahim Abu Shahair, Jihad Abu Jamous, Hamdan Abu Amshah and Abdel Qader al-Hawabat took place on Saturday, according to the Palestinian Press Agency.
A day earlier, a massive crowd turned out as Palestinian farmer Omar Samour was laid to rest in Gaza. The 31-year-old farmer was killed by Israeli shelling on Friday, reported AFP.
Outside of the Gaza Strip in the West Bank city of Nablus, mourners paraded with Palestinian flags from Al-Haj Nimr Al-Nabulsi mosque to a place called Martyrs Square. Tensions remain high in the area, with Reuters reporting further shots being fired along the border again on Saturday.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas blamed Israeli troops for Friday’s killings and declared Saturday a national day of mourning.
However, Israeli authorities have said the weekend’s violence was caused by Hamas infiltrating protests and encouraging rioting.
“Hamas is the terrorist organization that controls Gaza with an iron fist. Hamas sent over 30,000 Palestinians to violently riot along our border, hurling burning tires, throwing Molotov cocktails and attempting to harm or destroy Israeli’s security structure,” said IDF Major Keren Hajioff.
“Our soldiers precisely targeted the specific terrorists that attempted to carry out these acts of terror… Sadly, Hamas chose to continue their tradition of using innocent civilians as tools of terror.”
I woke up from a pretty frightening dream
I was in the what I assumed was NY, everyone was in distress but going about there business as if everything was normal
Buildings everywhere demolished and roads
It was like a giant construction zone with organised disorder if I can put it that way
I wanted a taxi out of there to the airport. I had no idea how I got there in the first place
I’m from another country
But there were no actual addresses to call one to even if you had a phone
There were ominous helicopters buzzing around and swarms of insect like machines which scared the bejesus out of me
I saw what looked like St Patrick’s Cathedral but it extended way up into the sky and then I realised it was all a mirage and seemingly disconnected even from the buildings or mirages below it
There were other mirages as well
Disorder and unreality went hand in hand and this extended to human interactions which left me bamboozled and frustrated
People seemed troubled through no fault of their own and would have helped me but just didn’t know how
There wasn’t much that could have been done
I finally woke up with a tremendous relief that I wasn’t actually even there but here at home and everything was normal, it wasn’t real. Phew!
They say Bolton kisses up and kicks down.
RT: ‘A message to the world that Palestinians didn’t forget their land’ – Hamas official on Gaza clashes
The ‘Great Return’ protests are not just another protest by Palestinians against the Israeli occupation, they are a fresh start in the effort to reclaim the long-lost land, Mousa Abu Marzook from the Hamas politburo told RT.
Marzook, a deputy chairman of the Hamas Political Bureau, disputed the official Israeli narrative, according to which those who were killed in the protests were met with deadly force because they sought to “infiltrate” Israeli territory.
“First of all, I want to say that all who were killed did not come close to the border fence and did not attempt to take it by storm.
They were killed by snipers from a long distance when they were inside the Gaza Strip,” Marzook said, adding that the international community must condemn the way the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) handled the mass unrest.
By staging the six-week-long ‘Great Return’ protests, calling for the right of the Palestinian refugees to return to their homes that are now in territory occupied by Israel, the Palestinian people will “send a message that they did not forget their villages and towns, the towns of their fathers and grandfathers,” Marzook said.
“Palestinians now live in Europe, America and in many other countries. They should take action, organize rallies, do what they think is necessary. They need to come back to their country by sea, by air,” he said, noting that “it’s only the beginning, only a spark.”
Israel has dismissed reports that its soldiers have used excessive force when suppressing the demonstrations.
Labeling the protests “riots and terrorist attacks,” an IDF spokesman said that it “operated in strict accordance with the rules of engagement, firing only when necessary and avoiding civilians strategically placed by Hamas in harm’s way,” in a statement, cited by the Jerusalem Post.
The protesters, he claimed, pelted the Israeli military with rocks, hurled burning tires and firebombs towards them, damaging the fence.
He called a video circulating online “Hamas propaganda” for showing a teenager running from the fence and then falling on the ground, supposedly after being hit by a sniper bullet.
RT also spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s foreign media spokesperson, David Keyes, to get Israel’s perspective on Friday’s events in Gaza. You can watch the full interview here.
Islamic Resistance Movement delegation in Moscow meet senior Russian officials
Senior Hamas official Musa abu-Marzouq met on Friday with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister and Special Presidential Envoy for the Middle East Mikhail Bogdanov in Moscow.
During the meeting, Abu-Marzouq said, they discussed several issues related to the latest development of the Palestinian issue.
“The discussions concentrated on the developments of the Great March of Return, which represented the tenaciousness of the Palestinians in their historical rights and that they have several choices to defend themselves,” Abu-Marzouq said.
He also said that they came through the obstacles ahead of the internal Palestinian reconciliation during the discussions and the threats by the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to take more punitive measures against Gaza.
The delegation also explained the reason why Hamas rejects the oppressive American decisions, Abu-Marzouq said, mainly the so-called Deal of the Century.
Meanwhile, Bogdanov reiterated the firm Russian position regarding the support of Palestinian rights and keenness to develop the relationship with Hamas and the other Palestinian factions.
He also stressed on the importance of the Palestinian unity and the implementation of the Hamas-Fatah reconciliation.
The Russian official also expressed his country’s rejection to the so-called American Deal of the Century.
The Islamic Resistance Movement (HAMAS) regrets UN Security Council failure to condemn Israeli crimes against unarmed Palestinians
Press TV: Mattis tells Bolton ‘I heard you’re the devil incarnate’
US Defense Secretary James Mattis has told President Donald Trump’s incoming hawkish national security adviser John Bolton that he is the “devil incarnate” after greeting him at the Pentagon on Thursday.
“Ambassador Bolton, so good to see you. Thanks for coming and it’s good to finally meet you. I’ve heard that you’re actually the devil incarnate and I wanted to meet you,” Mattis can be heard telling Bolton.
Bolton laughed off the remark as the two men shook hands and walked past reporters into the Pentagon for their official meeting.
The Pentagon said the purpose of Thursday’s meeting was to build a “productive partnership” but offered no details on what the two men discussed.
It was an unusual start for two men who are strangers to each other and will be the nexus of the White House National Security Council.
Hamas mourns martyrs of Great March of Return
The Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement mourned the martyrs who fell on Friday during the activities of the Great March or Return.
In a statement, Hamas said that the Palestinian people proved that they are able to change the rules of conflict with the Zionist enemy on the ground.
“Throughout the massive turnout in the Great March of Return, the Palestinian people sent a strong message to everyone turning a blind eye to the Palestinian rights,” the statement said.
“The Palestinians proved that the Palestinian cause is not for food or just a humanitarian issue,” the statement added, “but it is a political issue that all the powers of evil conspired against it in order to uproot the Palestinians from their land.”
In addition, the statement said: “The inevitable return to the holy land is an activity the Palestinians have been practicing everyday on the ground throughout the steadfast will.”
Hamas stressed that the Palestinians had buried the ‘Deal of the Century’ and ended it forever. “The Palestinian people, who are sticking to their rights, deserve freedom and full independence.”
The Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement concluded the statement, saying: “Today’s martyrs sacrificed their souls for the sake of the great revolution which precedes the great return.”
Hamas hopes the full and fast recovery for the wounded.
Alahed: Hezbollah Hails Palestinians’ Heroic March of Return
Hezbollah issued the following statement:
The resistance Palestinian people has once again in Gaza presented the purest images of sacrifice, stressing with the blood of its martyrs, their raised fists and echoing cries their stable right to a liberated and dignified Palestine that embraces all its sons whether those who are inside, abroad or all over the diaspora.
Friday’s events have stressed again that the Palestinian cause is alive and that the resistant Palestinian people is always ready to pay huge sacrifices for the sake of liberating its land and nation.
The March of Return, that witnessed massive participation, caused despair to the enemies of the Palestinian people as well as all the betrayers and conspirers against their cause.
It is a strong massive response to the so-called “deal of the century”, showing the Palestinians’ adherence to their historical and patriotic rights and that they would never compromise any right of them no matter what are the sacrifices.
As Hezbollah hails and respects its people in Palestine on their Land Day, it expresses deep condolences to the families of hero martyrs and pray for those wounded to get well soon.
Hezbollah further calls all the free people of the world, especially the Arab and Muslim peoples, to hold their responsibilities in backing the Palestinian people and offer all possible kinds of support in their struggle to liberate their land and restore their sanctities.
John Bolton represents Israel and the USS Liberty the USA.
That is the USS Liberty.
A 3D journey down a sewage drain.
He’s “Fought Hate all my life”…. There’s a key role position in Justice for Palestinians with a guarantee of absolutely NO knighthood.
Bolton, if he is not a hidden Jew, is exactly the Goy tool they wrote about in the “Protocols”.
The Rabinical elite always knew that eventually, the “best of the Goyim will die”. Bolton obviously has no clue of their written braggings.
I am sure like many, Brother Nate would not want to wait that long, to see them being punished by their masters. I am if favour, if allowed by God almighty, of snatching victory from their Jaws, via dispatching the Serpent’s head.
It must be on the cards after all they have done, and continue to plan to do.
Khristos Voskres! Voistinu Voskrese!
Christos Anesti! Alithos Anesti!
Christ is Risen! He has Risen Indeed!
Jews media reports say that evidence in the Skripal murder leads to Russia; that the evidence was made obvious and was left intentionally because Russia wanted everyone to know Russia was responsible.
Zionists have left evidence pointing to whoever they were framing in other cases. For example, there were the pristine “ID cards” of the Arabs accused of doing 9/11. Imagine plastic ID cards surviving unscathed where steel melted.
There was the “Arab Terrorist ID card” conveniently left behind at the Charlie Hebdo murders in Paris to make it appear that Arabs did the Hebdo murders.
In all the deeds I’ve ever done, good, bad, or otherwise, I’ve never left my ID card there, not even once. Anyone trying to pull off 9/11 or the Hebdo murders would not carry an ID card on the mission, unless it was a fake ID card that didn’t reveal his true identity.
The real reason the Skripal evidence pointing to Russia is so obvious and was left intentionally, has a much better and more believable explanation - Zionists planted the evidence.
Electronic Intifada: Israel admits, then deletes, responsibility for Gaza killings
The Israeli army posted a statement on Twitter on Saturday apparently accepting full responsibility for the killings a day earlier of 15 Palestinians as thousands took part in the Great March of Return in Gaza.
The army then quickly deleted the admission – as more evidence of war crimes by its soldiers came to light – but not before a copy was made by the human rights group B’Tselem.
IDF [at] IDFSpokesperson
“Yesterday we saw 30,000 people; we arrived prepared and with precise reinforcements. Nothing was carried out uncontrolled; everything was accurate and measured, and we know where every bullet landed”
( twitter.com/btselem/status/980042213718708224/photo/1 )
Sarit Michaeli, B’Tselem’s international advocacy officer, characterized the statement as meaning that the “Israeli army takes full responsibility for the killing of all unarmed protesters and the injuring of hundreds with live ammunition.”
The army’s deletion of the tweet is hardly surprising. The admission that its killings of demonstrators were premeditated down to the last bullet means it cannot deny responsibility for apparent war crimes, such as the lethal shooting of Abd al-Fattah Abd al-Nabi, 19, as he ran away from the Israel-Gaza boundary fence. Abd al-Nabi was reportedly shot in the head.
( electronicintifada.net/blogs/ali-abunimah/israel-admits-then-deletes-responsibility-gaza-killings )
Not mentioned but shown in three videos from different angles is the fact that Abd al-Nabi had run out from the crowd to help another Palestinian wearing a green shirt run with an abandoned tire he’d daringly grabbed from no man’s land and was running back to the group with his trophy, being shot at as he ran.
Abd al-Nabi ran out, grabbed the tire, and was then snipered in the head. Both men were several hundred yards away from the boundary fence, both were running away from it back into the crowd, both men were completely unarmed.
Clearly, the old abandoned tire was a weapon of mass destruction.
On the 29th, the day before the March, the Jews’ Ministry of Foreign Affairs posted this gem:
“The march on Israel’s southern border, organized by #Hamas in #Gaza, is a deliberate attempt to provoke a violent confrontation with Israel.
Responsibility for any clashes that may arise lies solely with Hamas & other participating Palestinian orgs - bit.ly/2Idunxs
The very same day a special cable to all Israeli diplomats from the @IsraelMFA requested that they use the listed MFA’s talking points when lobbying against the Gaza march, and the script went out to the MSM of course.
The Great March of Return is not organized by Hamas, and never was, but by non-affiliated, non-aligned, peaceful Palestinian refugees — artists, poets, human and civil rights workers around the idea expressed by one man, an artist, several years ago. although Hamas supports it and the political wing is probably helping in the background. At this stage after bloody Friday, the same day as the Crucifixion of Christ according to the Western calendar.
The “March of Return” marks Land Day, a day Palestinians worldwide have commemorated since 1976, when Israeli security forces shot dead six Israeli Arabs who were protesting the expropriation of Arab-owned land in northern Israel to build Jewish communities. About 100 others were wounded and hundreds were arrested during the protest on March 30 of that year.
Since the March is the organic popular expression of the entire Palestinian people, only the Palestinian flag is permitted. Members of Hamas are participating with their families as part of the Palestinian people, not as partisans. Any members of the armed wing of Hamas, the al Qassam brigades, are not wearing any militia insignia and uniforms. The Zeta-male criminal occupation thugs claim that they killed Hamas members.
Let’s go back to the IOF Spox deleted tweet: “Nothing was carried out uncontrolled; everything was accurate and measured, and we know where every bullet landed”.
If it’s true that the Jews killed Hamas members as claimed, (and they don’t say if these were members of the unarmed political wing or the militia), then those 100 snipers that were set up were there for deliberately planned targeted assassinations of same, knowing that these men would be unarmed and that the March was completely peaceful and had no defenses.
I seriously doubt that the IOF goons are that skilled as to be able to pick out by facial recognition someone from Hamas in a crowd of hundreds or thousands several hundred feet away.
Days ago, IOF command issued “shoot to kill” orders. And they did, turning the tent cities into killing fields.
Seventeen people are dead now. The Prime Minister’s Office (Bibsy’s) was very quick to post this Jewish Pesach propaganda babble on their Twitter:
PM of Israel Verified account
“At least 10 known terrorists with track records of terrorist activity were killed whilst carrying out acts of terror during the violent riots along the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip on Friday March 30, 2018″, followed by a graphic titled: “The Terrorists of the Violent Riots”
There are five tent cities set up inside Gaza along the 66 km of border. Thousands of Palestinians will camp out near the fence as an extended protest until Nakba Day in mid-May, with weekly demonstrations on Fridays.
Haarets reported yesterday that “According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, 1,416 people were wounded: 758 from live fire, 148 from rubber-tipped bullets, 422 from inhaling tear gas and 88 from other causes.
Palestinian officials said that one was killed and 237 wounded in Rafah; four were killed and 345 wounded in southern Gaza; five were killed and 286 wounded in northern Gaza; two were killed and 197 wounded in central Gaza; and three were killed and 351 wounded in Khan Yunis.”
Sure, with over 900 people shot with live rounds and the slightly less lethal rubber coated bullets, and with an unknown number of partisan Gazan males belonging to Hamas-al Qassam and other militant groups participating peacefully with their families, chances are that of the 900+ men, women, and children and elderly that were shot, there would be a percentage of victims who are Hamas members.
Targeted assassinations, or a pathetic attempt to justify the IDF’s killing field massacres after the fact by highlighting Hamas members incidental among the victims after the fact?
It’s premeditated murder of unarmed persons, either way you look at it. The bastards knew that the demonstration was completely unarmed and defenseless. Their hyperventilating “talking point” propaganda disseminated out of Israeli embassies proves it.
Electronic Intifada: New York Times sides with Israel as it kills Gaza marchers
The New York Times quickly put its spin on the Great March of Return by Palestinians in Gaza.
Writing from Jerusalem, Isabel Kershner dismissed Palestinian nonviolence and emphasized a rapid descent into “chaos and bloodshed.” (Iyad Abuheweila and Ibrahim El-Mughraby contributed reporting from Gaza.)
That language persisted for much of Friday before being replaced with wording about Palestinians venting “their pent-up frustration in a protest that quickly turned violent.”
Friday saw the greatest number of Palestinian fatalities in a single day at the hands of occupation forces since the end of Israel’s 2014 military assault on the Gaza Strip.
At one juncture, Kershner’s opening sentence read: “What was billed as a six-week campaign of peaceful protests in Gaza descended almost immediately into chaos and bloodshed on Friday, with health officials in the Palestinian territory saying Israeli soldiers killed 15 Palestinians in confrontations along the border fence.”
She assigned no responsibility for that descent in her opening paragraph, but the second paragraph makes clear which point of view Kershner thinks her readers should believe.
“Soon after the campaign began Friday morning, the Israeli military said Palestinian protesters were rioting in six places along the border, rolling burning tires and hurling stones at the fence and at Israeli soldiers beyond it.”
The article’s final version moved this language to the third paragraph and remained profoundly problematic. “But as some began hurling stones, tossing Molotov cocktails and rolling burning tires at the fence, the Israelis responded with tear gas and gunfire.”
Killing at dawn
There is no reporting from the newspaper as to whether the march started as nonviolent and was pitched into violence after Israeli forces used deadly force.
According to the Gaza-based human rights group Al Mezan, the first death of the day occurred around 5 am, when Israeli forces fired an artillery shell killing farmer Omar Samour in his field some 700 meters inside Gaza.
Strikingly, Kershner fails to note that at the time of her article, no Israeli soldiers had been reported as killed or injured. Nonetheless, Palestinians faced deadly fire.
Videos that subsequently emerged showed clear evidence of Palestinians being shot when they posed no plausible danger to anyone. In one case, a young man was shot dead a long distance from the boundary fence and as he ran away from it.
Whatever the timeline, Israeli occupation forces denying Palestinians the right of return to stolen lands and properties killed and injured Palestinian demonstrators on what Human Rights Watch called a “shocking” scale.
( electronicintifada.net/blogs/michael-f-brown/new-york-times-sides-israel-it-kills-gaza-marchers )
Oh, stop, Slimes, you’re killing me.
The Slimes managed to come up with one, just one photo of a burning tire and a young Palestinian male using a slingshot in some overgrown weeds, hundreds of feet away from the barrier fence and the line of Zeta-male IOF, out of five tent-cities in Gaza with tens of thousands of people attending. Where are the photos of fire-bombs being thrown? Where are the photos of the so-called mob attacks on the fence?
There’s a lot of photographs of tear gas smoke, however, being dropped from drones. And no mention of the hundreds of armed, gelded cowards of the IOF shooting at unarmed people in the back, at people on their knees in prayer, and firing into crowds from several hundred meters away from the prison fence, not “storming it.”
Neither the Criminal State’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (headed by Bibsy, I believe) nor the New York Slimes claimed or provided actual evidence that any of the Palestinians were doing anything wrong at the time they were murdered, including 5 men of 17 killed men confirmed by Hamas as being members.
There’s nothing new under the sun.
Seventy years ago, the criminal terrorist Ben Gurion gave the order to shoot to kill on sight any brutally “ethnically cleansed” Palestinian refugees who attempted to return to their homes across the “borders” of the new criminal terrorist state of Israhell.
Spring is in the air. Nowadays that means riots are coming. Ever notice how the riots start up after the winter is past and the weather gets so that it’s nice to be out and about?
Now that spring has started and April is here, good riot weather is coming. The Jews must hate it when the cold north wind and the freezing rain puts a damper on their riots during the winter.
Zionist bankster Jew George Soros funds a lot of the riots via his Open Society Foundation.
Expect the Jewish incited riots to flare up again as the weather permits.
Trump may not support the riots and destruction of Christian America like democrat administrations, but the riots, migrant floods, and such Zionist evils continue. Trump either cannot or will not stop it.
Teresa May is the British equivalent of John Bolton.
Both are bumbling idiots.
Her first show of incompetence was in calling an early election to strengthen her government’s position.
It resulted in them receiving a greatly reduced paper thin “mandate” to govern.
She and her government would have been in a much stronger position had they not called the election way ahead of time.
Her second demonstration of incompetence was pulling the Scripal stunt, and make no mistake — that was such a stunningly incompetent move she will wear the egg on her face for the rest of her political life.
Bolton is just another used idiot.

RT YouTube:‘March of Return’: Gaza rally enters third day, at least 7 injured
At least seven people were injured as Israeli forces launched teargas against Palestinian protesters in the city of Jabalia in the northern Gaza Strip, Sunday, as the protests go into their third day.
Several dozen protesters suffered from suffocation due to inhaling teargas.
The injured were taken to receive medical treatment at a nearby hospital. Clashes have been ongoing since Friday, which marked the annual ‘March of Return’ to commemorate ‘Land Day.’
RT: Israeli defense minister describes calls for probe into IDF use of force ‘hypocritical’
Excerpt: Commenting on the violence, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for an independent investigation into the bloodshed.
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, rights group Amnesty International, and Israel’s left-wing opposition Meretz party made similar calls.
But the Israeli government is standing by the IDF’s response to the Palestinian protest.
“Israeli soldiers did what was necessary. I think all our soldiers deserve a medal,” Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Army Radio. “As for a commission of inquiry – there won’t be one.”
The minister reiterated his position in a Twitter post, rejecting the calls for a probe.
“I don’t understand the painted choir that wants a commission of inquiry.
“They got confused and thought that Hamas had arranged the Woodstock festival yesterday and we had to give them flowers,” he wrote in Hebrew, referring to the militant Palestinian group controlling the Gaza Strip.
In other words, Avigdor Lieberman of the cold, dead fisheyes, burning tires (finally found another picture) and throwing stones from hundreds of feet away are capital offenses, despite posing absolutely no danger to your precious Zeta-males dug in behind the fence.
Furthermore, this behavior only started happening after your goons murdered and wounded over 1400 defenseless Palestinians in cold blood as a provocation, which naturally infuriated angry young Palestinian men and teenagers.
I’m waiting for credible evidence that someone attacked the Gaza prison fence that doesn’t appear that it was pulled from IOF stock footage, Avigdor, you louse.
19 year old Abdul Fattah Abdul Nabi is the young man who was murdered with a sniper shot to the head. This video shows the incident from beginning to end.
It clearly shows that Nabi was hundreds of feet away from the prison fence running the opposite direction away from it. He had run out of the crowd to help another man in a green shirt running and being shot at after he snatched up an abandoned tire, also hundreds of feet away from the fence and the IOF positions.

But, these testicle-free Zeta-males are dangerous, cowardly clowns who think it’s manly to shoot an unarmed double leg amputee in the head, sitting in his wheelchair holding a Palestinian flag.

RIDICULOUS: Russians Laugh At Leaked British Presentation That “Proves” Russia is Guilty
Al Masdar News: Breaking: Russia claims Skripal poisoning to be false-flag operation, was done to compensate for UK’s insignificance in European affairs
BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:40 P.M.) – The Russian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Alexander Yakovenko, has officially accused British intelligence of carrying out the Sergei Skripal poisoning – since blamed on Russian spies.
According to the Russian ambassador, there are two motivations for the false-flag attack by British intelligence:
first, that the UK is trying to cover up the fact that Brussels has dictated to London almost all the terms of the Brexit agreement (a testament to the country’s dwindling influence in European affairs) and,
second, that British Prime Minister Theresa May is attempting to present herself as a strong leader by attacking Russia.
Yakovenko draws his suspicion from the fact that UK intelligence refuses to cooperate with Russian authorities on any level to investigate the poisoning of the turncoat agent.
‘This provocation has been carried out by UK secret services. We are not provided with any facts, they refuse to cooperate with us. Such a state of affairs brings us to the judgment that it is a provocation organized by secret services,’ Yakovenko said in his statement.
Russians eat borshcht. That proves they poisoned the Scripals.

The Algemeiner: IDF Source: ‘Hamas Is Risking a Ferocious Response’
“Hamas is risking a ferocious response. It could definitely happen,” an IDF source said of the escalating violence on the Gaza border.
Some 30,000 Palestinians have gathered on the border as part of the “March of Return” supported by Hamas. There have been several attempts to breach the security barrier with Israel, as well as individual acts of terrorism. The IDF has mostly responded with non-lethal means, but has used live fire against direct acts of violence.
Sixteen Palestinians have been killed since the demonstrations began on Friday, ten of whom were later identified as members of terrorist organizations.
The Hebrew news site Walla quotes an anonymous IDF source saying the violence could easily get worse: “Hamas could decide to raise the price for the IDF through a direct attack on soldiers with sniping or from within the demonstrations.”
Organizers of the March of Return planned to keep the tent-cities 700 meters, over 1/2 mile away from the prison fences. They were absolutely certain that the March would be a safe place for the elderly, women and children.
It was also planned that Hamas, which is the elected civilian government of Gaza, would deploy patrol units in the area to prevent marchers from approaching the border, probably units of the Palestinian Civil Police Force
In other words, Israel admits there has been no direct attack on soldiers of any sort by Hamas military wing up until now.
And, the IOF is broadcasting their planned provocation of more slaughter of the unarmed Palestinians gathered for the March by claiming that Hamas is snipering the IOF from within the crowds — pushing the “Hamas-uses-human-shields” tripe in order to justify murdering more innocent Palestinians.
“The massacre [is] a ready tool in the Israeli war-chest”.
Mondoweiss: A brief, unhappy history of Israeli massacres
It would be nice to think that, as an Israeli officer once put it, “This time we went too far” — that the killings of 17 unarmed protesters in Gaza by Israeli riflers across a security fence on Friday would cause the world to sanction Israel for its conduct.
But if you look over Israel’s history, you find that the massacre has been a ready tool in the Israeli war-chest; and Israelis have not been prosecuted for carrying them out. Indeed, a couple of those responsible later became prime minister!
Here, largely from my own memory, is a rapidly-assembled list of massacres, defined by Webster’s as the killing of a “number of usually helpless or unresisting human beings under circumstances of atrocity or cruelty” (and yes, a couple precede the birth of the state).
I posted this somewhere else but it won’t hurt to repost it here
Today is Western Easter Sunday, celebrating the day Jesus Christ rose from the dead.
How can that escape Jews for all history?
Answer that and you get to the root of today’s problems.
For all you Jews out there.
Time for the vast Turkish armed forces to disembark on the shores of the Eastern Mediterranean the whole length of the Gaza Strip.
Wouldn’t take long for Turkish tank crews to reduce illegal hillside Jew housing to rubble.
These vile pestilent murderous Jews at the very least have to be stymied, better still if ancient history is repeated.
They, of Ottoman descendants, in the short term are the only hope for beleaguered Palestine.
So, now turning to the Z-male geldings and the Z-male shrews with poisonous wombs in the “most moral army in the world” playing in Israel’s newest Spielberg reality horror show called the Gaza Killing Fields, we turn to the Israeli Occupation Force’s spokesthing, Keren Hajioff.
Keren will Jew-’splain: Everything you need to know about the riots in Gaza today (March 31):
“The IDF is doing today what we do every day, defending our borders from terrorists who seek to harm our citizens.
“Hamas is the terrorist organization that controls Gaza with an iron fist.
“Hamas sent over 30,000 Palestinians to violently riot along our border, hurling burning tires, throwing Molotov cocktails and attempting to harm or destroy Israeli’s security structure.
“Our soldiers precisely targeted the specific terrorists that attempted to carry out these acts of terror some of them known terrorists. Sadly, Hamas chose to continue their tradition of using innocent civilians as tools of terror.”
( twitter.com/IDFSpokesperson/status/979852133502767104 )
Here, let me fix it for you, hon: “Our soldiers precisely targeted unarmed innocent civilians in the back, and more civilians were shot in the back while they were helping the wounded get away from Israeli snipers.” There. All done.
The IOF must have taken special care to pick this Jewess out as spokesZ-male for their Gaza human hunting club because of her muddy and strained English Received Pronunciation just to show what cool and exceptional butt buddies Israhell and the UK Tories really are, and how much Hell Aviv loves neocon Tory Theresa May and her own extremely overworked RP accent.
Perhaps Keren is overcompensating her oh so very English accent in order to cover up the one from Brooklyn, or maybe gloss her Yiddish upbringing after her East European Jewish grandparents or parents arrived in the UK.
Received Pronunciation (RP) is the accent of Standard English in the United Kingdom, defined in the Concise Oxford English Dictionary as “the standard accent of English as spoken in the south of England”.
RP enjoys high social prestige in Britain, being thought of as the accent of those with power, money, and influence, and is carefully cultivated by foreign students, especially Jewish Z-mails attending prestigious Oxford or Cambridge universities.
I guess poor Keren’s shrieking is to demonstrate just how defenseless, weak, and victimized and frightened the Jewish people are by the unarmed Palestinians camping and demonstrating several hundred yards away — who are all terrorists and all are Hamas.
Keren valiantly defends the Jews’ Altar of Eternal Victimhood. That’s why snipers not only killed 17 unarmed Palestinians so far, but lest we forget, also fired on and wounded at least 900 people, some of whom are surely in critical condition and may die at any time.
The IOF’s fuzzy “photo evidence” of Palestinian Evil Doers firing guns at the IOF and trying to dig under a barrier fence and “plant bombs” on their Twitter feed is not convincing.
There’s no digital time stamp, just pasted labels, if any. Looks like the IOF brainiacs are using file footage.
The Zeta-males claimed Friday evening after publishing an undated infrared video on Twitter March 30 10:54 AM:
“Moments ago, IDF troops thwarted an infiltration attempt by three terrorists in the northern Gaza Strip. The terrorists approached the security fence and attempted to infiltrate Israeli territory. In response, IDF troops targeted the terrorists with tank fire”
Then, there was some drivel about how these two of these same three terrorists had earlier fired rifles at the IDF. And that they were planting bombs under the fence. That’s a mighty Hamas operation, if in fact it actually happened, which it didn’t. It’s a nonsensical lie.
Just “moments ago” — the time stamp is 10:54 AM, Jerusalem time I believe, and means it was broad daylight. It’s infrared footage which means it was taken at night.
Amazing how 50,000 Palestinians with thousands of smart phones and surely a hundred or two of the local and international media didn’t notice three “Hamas terrorists” armed with rifles who began shooting at the IDF (or alternately planting bombs under fence) getting blown away at the prison fence by a tank. A tank round is not subtle and sneaky like a sniper rifle. Not one tweet from anyone but the IDF Spox (you, Keren) about this incident.
IOF Spox also posted an overhead photo of two blurred out figures up close to a double fence barrier somewhere — with no authentication that this occurred at any of the spots the five March of Return tent-cities set up near 66 km of border barrier around the Gaza Strip.
“A photograph from a terror cell being thwarted last night in the northern Gaza Strip”
Ahem, Keren. The photo was clearly taken in broad daylight.
Unless there’s a continuous video showing these people actually coming out of the protest groups, these photos and edited clips are just file footage.
The IDF’s announcement that “At least 10 known terrorists with track records of terrorist activity were killed whilst carrying out acts of terror during the violent riots along the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip on Friday March 30, 2018″ reeks of the British government’s lies upon lies the day after Bloody Sunday.
RT: ‘Israel is simply defending itself from onslaught’ - Netanyahu’s spokesman on Gaza border clashes17 Palestinians are confirmed dead and over a thousand injured in clashes with Israeli soldiers at the Gaza border. That’s according to the UN Permanent Observer for Palestine who, along with the UN Secretary General, is calling for an independent investigation into the deaths.
However, Israel blamed what it called violent riots, on Hamas, which it views as a terrorist organisation. The country’s army said it would respond to any ‘threat to Israeli sovereignty’, as well as to damage to the security fence.
We asked the Israeli Prime Minister’s foreign-media spokesperson, David Keyes, whether the IDF response is proportionate.
Hamas bla bla bla Hamas bla blabbity bla Hamas Hamas bla bla bla, Hamas Hamas Hamas bla bla Hamas Hamas Hamas Hamas bla bla Hamas Hamas Hamas Hamas Hamas blabbity bla blabbity Hamas Hamas Hamas Hamas bla bla Hamas Hamas Hamas bla Hamas Hamas bla Hamas blibbity blabbity bla Hamas Hamas Hamas
This guy, David Keyes, Netanyahu’s megaphone pushing Bibsy’s talking points, said “Hamas” about 32-33 times in the above interview with RT. I’m not recounting to make sure. He almost put me to sleep the first time.
In his mind Palestinians = Terrorists = Hamas, they’re all one and the same, so shoot them all. It’s very important that you repeat “Hamas” as often as possible in a sentence to make it come true.
David Keyes is the executive director of Advancing Human Rights and co-founder of CyberDissidents.org.
Ironic, no? Human rights for everyone but Palestinians.
Is there any good in anyone that stands with Jews?
Every evil face is either a Jew or a proselyte for Jews. Nearly all that stand against Jews are the better end of humanity. It seems to be the dividing line with politicians.
You’re either with the Devil’s children or against them.
There’s a fellow that has a channel on youtube that has done some interesting historical research on Jews. His channel is called “Jews for Hitler”.
May God bless your courage and fight, Brother Nate!
Russia has no question noted the alignment of players in the Skipral joke.
Several EU members and NZ have not, indeed have refused to expell Russian diplomats, whose only crime was to build bridges between Russia and those countries.
These include but not limited to Portugal, Ireland, Austria, Croatia, China, Turkey, Israel.
And several others including I think the Czech Republic, in the EU as well which I forget.
Russia however will not forget. I know this by their actions on the world stage which, unlike the duplicitous West, are transparent.
Israel usually gets others to do their dirty work, except when they won’t, but even then indirectly.
These countries, as well as the ones I omitted to mention, I recommend to migrate to whist you still have a chance.
I think Portugal is the best option. You can retire there no problem.
I recommend this for two reasons. One these are the countries which have some individuality and scruples left.
And two, when the bombs start flying, if Russia is forced to it, these will undoubtedly be the safest places to be.

The poor, misunderstood Jews are getting irked that the Florida teenagers from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have stolen their trademarked Never Again™ slogan, and that other gun-grabbers are using the Holoco$t as a rallying cry for gun control.
The Forward: Stop Using The Holocaust To Push Gun Control
Yom HaShoah, the day on the Jewish calendar remembering victims of the Holocaust, falls in late April this year.
But you would be forgiven for getting a little turned around in the last weeks, especially if you’ve spent any time online, where you may have seen #NeverAgain trending on Twitter.
The slogan, a commitment that the genocide of the Holocaust would never again take place, has now been appropriated by the Parkland shooting’s survivors.
After the tragic massacre at their school left 17 dead, the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have been using “Never Again” as a rallying cry for gun control.
# NeverAgain and # EnoughIsEnoug are just a few of the hashtags they have been using to identify their activism on social media.
Another gun control group recently employed Holocaust imagery in the course of their activism; lining up thousands of shoes on the lawn of the Capitol to symbolize all of the children killed by gun violence since the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012.
It was an explicit reference to the most famous portion of the U.S. Holocaust Museum, a display of the shoes of those who were transported to a concentration camp and the only artifact left behind of the Jews who owned them.
Though I sympathize with the horror victims of gun violence have gone through, I feel this is miguided.

In this, the ANC followed the model the Jews established when they founded the NAACP in the United States, with the exception that the ANC was a much more violent and openly communist organization.
Genocide of Palestinians
Jewish US senator Bernie Sanders calls Israeli Gaza killings ‘tragic’
US independent Senator and former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has called the recent killings of Palestinians by Israeli forces “tragic.”
Israel has deployed hundreds of forces to the buffer zone with Gaza, including 100 snipers who have been given authorization to use live ammunition.
At least 17 Palestinians were killed and over 1,400 others were injured by Israeli forces inside Gaza on Friday alone.
The Israeli fire was unprovoked, as the regime has militarized Gaza’s border, and the Palestinians were protesting peacefully.

If Americans Knew: Opinion: Debunking Israel’s Talking Points on Deadly Gaza Protests
Hamas is not Gaza and Gaza is not Hamas. Civilian Gazans’ willingness to walk to that fence is not a measure of their support for Hamas. It measures their yearning to express themselves as humans and claim their freedom, even at immediate risk.
By Marilyn Garson, Ha’aretz
In 1988 at the gates of Jerusalem’s Old City, I watched Palestinian youths face down Israeli soldiers. The soldiers held rifles, while the Palestinians held stones.
That asymmetry sent the Judaism of my childhood crashing headlong into my sense of justice. The stones demanded that I ask, “What could make a young man risk his life this way?”
My work with war-affected communities later brought me to the Gaza Strip. Living there from 2011 to 2015, I confronted Israel’s power from the ground.
On Friday, Land Day, unarmed Gazans confronted this power once more; they were commemorating the six unarmed protesters who were killed 42 years ago in 1976 as they protested the expropriation of Arab-owned land in northern Israel.
Organizers in Gaza had called for a season of nonviolent protest lasting until the day of the so-called Nakba, when Palestinians mourn the losses of 1948, asserting the rights of refugees who comprise the majority of Gaza’s population.
Tens of thousands of Gazans walked toward the border facing a heavily armed Israeli line. They walked toward rifles and drones.
Israel had announced its deployment of a hundred snipers authorized to use live ammunition. And fire they did; the United Nations reports 15 dead and 1,416 wounded, including 750 hit by live ammunition, of whom 20 are in critical condition.
Gazans walked into all that, demanding that we ask, “What is happening in Gaza to make them risk their lives?” That is the bedrock question. Layers of language are being heaped upon it, to obscure it.
Even before the protest began, Israeli spokespeople framed it preemptively as a Hamas production. If the march is merely Hamas’ political positioning, they imply, there is no need to seek a deeper understanding.
However, Hamas is not Gaza and Gaza is not Hamas.
Civilian Gazans’ willingness to walk to that fence is not a measure of their support for Hamas. It measures their yearning to express themselves as humans and claim their freedom, even at immediate risk.
Benjamin Netanyahu presented the killings as the defense of Israel’s border. However, a border is an agreed line. This line is the unilateral, military demarcation of an illegal blockade.
The Israeli army additionally militarizes a belt of Gaza’s agricultural land, intruding a further 300 to 500 meters into Gaza. That is the zone in which live fire is being used.
Gazans are walking and being killed, on their own land. Walking in protest is not a capital crime in other places, and human rights group B’Tselem calls Israel’s attempt to control the Gaza protest with live fire “absurd.”
Netanyahu declared his policy of “war on stone-throwers” in 2015, arguing that a stone justifies the use of deadly force. Perhaps to Humpty Dumpty it does.
However, since those nights of the 2014 war, when Israel rained bombs onto Gaza each minute, I have wanted to ask him exactly how much deadly force is needed to justify a stone.
At the moment, the stones detract from the greater power of unarmed Gazans, walking.
Israeli voices have justified even the country’s most grievous violence against Gaza as being necessary to safeguard Israelis’ normal lives.
Normal? Two million Palestinians exist behind a wall, deprived of their fundamental rights to clean water, health, work, mobility. They are held in place by a structural violence that has become Israel’s lifestyle, propped up by law, dehumanizing rhetoric, politics and arms.
The failure to resolve the Palestinian conflict has helped to make Israel the most militarized country on earth. It is that choice that the violence protects, and there’s nothing normal about it.
Chemi Shalev fears “preposterous” comparisons to Birmingham, Alabama and apartheid South Africa, if these protests “compel the IDF to kill and maim unarmed civilians.” No one is compelling the IDF to kill.
Gaza doesn’t need to be Birmingham or Soweto to learn from them. When entrenched injustice refuses to right itself, mass nonviolent protest can help build and broaden the pressure that upends systemic wrongs.
To understand why Gazans are willing to pit their bodies against an army, peel away the political positioning on all sides. Instead ask, “What quality of life has convinced tens of thousands of human beings that such danger represents their best hope – and why aren’t they allowed to walk?”
Many, on all sides dislike & distrust President Recep Erdogan.
To me he has the making of a great leader.
His warmed closer ties with Putin, and virtual estranged relationship with the West is in keeping with a President who his is own man.
T.E. Lawrence is famed for uniting Arab against the Turk Empire, well what goes around comes around.
Erdogan’s challenge are the Kurds, overcome this problem with pragmatism Recep. Embrace Iran, Lebanon, Syria, &Iraq, & the prize of an Eighteenth century Palestine could become a reality.
The Palestinians need the right to keep and bear arms.

One of the most ignorant comments ever seen anywhere.
You are barking up the wrong tree if you imagine that those who frequent this great site, and who are awake, and who admire and love Brother Nathanael, would ever consider you to be anything other than a liar or a troll who wants the slaughter of gentiles to escalate.
Oh wait–isn’t that the very definition of a Jew?
The slaughter of innocents was just in time for the usual Passover blood letting by Jews even though the IOF Zeta-males (as Kathjuliane aptly names them) wear diapers.
As St. Paisios said, when a govt sins, the whole nation will suffer. It would not be surprising to see Russia and China annihilate Isrealhell, and shoot a few to the US as well.
In a country effectively ruled by Chabad, it is no surprise that the US decided to move the capital to Jerusalem in the month of the anniversary of the Nakba. It will their downfall, as St. Paisios predicted.
Most of those wounded in Gaza will perish because the medical infrastructure was destroyed in 2014. there is not enough electricity to even do surgery of any duration. There is no clean water, nor is there enough food beyond near starvation.
The Golgotha that the Palestinians (and others who border the demon state), will end in heavenly crowns, just as happened to the numerous Russian New Martyrs who endured Satanic rule in the twentieth century.
It’s a sad day when someone claiming to be Christian blackwashes Christ worse than any Jew has done.
It’s not bad enough that the heterodox have not yet figured out the real date of Pascha (when the Holy Fire appears–the light of the Resurrection).
Now, even the Roman Catholics have gone down the same road of depravity as the so called “Church of England” and the “Church of Sweden” — describing Our Lord and Savior as “transgender,” even homosexual.
In Sweden, they must refer to God, Christ, etc. with a gender neutral pronoun.
A professor of New Testament studies at the Jesuit founded and run Holy Cross College in Worcester, Massachusetts describes Christ as not only a “drag queen” (yes, he used those words) but other things too vile to even type.
He promoted these sick ideas (even worse than Larry David or Sarah Silverman) during Catholic Holy week in an article and in a book that is promoted at the college as well.
The college has defended him as being a “good Catholic”. Right.

Dear The Englishman,
Neo-Ottoman nationalistic pan-Turanic Sunni Sultan Erdogan, admirer and supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood and Grey Wolves, a regional leader?
Ummm, nope. Bashar al-Assad, yes.
Choked on my coffee when I read what you wrote.
Erdogan aggressively invades Syria, kills Syrian citizens, has treasonous Syrian turncoats in his reformed Free Syrian Army paramilitary to the TAF, and now occupies a part of sovereign Syria as part of his expansionist plans, and that’s the sign of a great leader?
You might ask the 100,000 or so of the Anatolian Christian churches — Rumlar (Greek) Orthodox, Syriac Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant communities (out of 80 million Turkish citizens) how things are going for them inside Turkey, in between ongoing confiscations and nationalization of church properties and schools, and such.
Let me give you an idea. The Greek community of Istanbul numbered 67,550 persons in 1955. However, after the Istanbul Pogrom orchestrated by Turkish authorities against the Greek community in that year, their number was dramatically reduced to only 48,000.
Today, the Greek community in Constantinople numbers about 2,000 people and most of them are elderly. In short, Christianity is on the brink of extinction in the nominally secular Republic of Turkey.
And there is the little issue of Turkey’s genocide of the Pontic Greeks at roughly the same time as the Armenian genocide in 1915 during WWI.
The Eastern Christian church communities in Syria, especially in Deir Ezzor — Assyrian, Armenian, Chaldean, for example, were established as refugee churches from those who survived the forced killing marches out of Anatolia.
Other minorities don’t fare very well, either.
Public Orthodoxy (Fordham University):
The Systematic Persecution of Religious Minorities in Turkey
Ergodan’s posturing again…or still. Anything for a soundbite. Much of what he says is for domestic consumption, the rest is showing off his peacock tail in the pro-Palestinian Muslim world to puff his regional prestige to counter-balance the grand peacock of the Arab world, born-again Zionist Wahabi Saudi Mohammed bin Sultan.
Don’t let Erdogan and Netanyahu’s kitchen fight fool you.
In 2016, after Turkey agreed to send humanitarian aid to Gaza through the Israeli Ashdod port after six years of negotiations over the Gaza Flotilla massacre, Erdogan thereby accepted the legitimacy of Hell Aviv’s blockade against Gaza and military occupation of the West Bank. He hasn’t uttered a serious word about either the Gaza blockade or the West Bank occupation since then, at least it seems to me.
Erdogan’s also good pals with the US again, he was bad mouthing Russia a few weeks ago.
Turkish foreign policy is double-minded and as unstable as water.
Erdogan will do what is in the interests of Erdogan and his chokehold on power and country, the interests of his family, and that of his Peace and Justice Party.
He hosted and funded “the Syrian opposition” headchoppers of the FSA (many of them Muslim Brotherhood) run their ratlines and covert supply logistics in league with the CIA and Mossad, facilitate the passage of foreign Al Qaeda/Nusra and Chechen/Caucasian jihadist terrorists, half of whom eventually swore allegience to ISIS (daughter of al Qaeda), support and illegally purchase stolen Syrian oil…list is endless.
Erdogan went to Plan B (and the Pentagon’s hand is in all of this), reformed the criminals of the Free Syrian Army, and now they are organized paramilitary units of the Turkish Armed Forces invading Syria.
The Syrian “civil” war is partly his party, lest we forget that for years, Erdogan’s mantra was “Assad Must Go!”
However, the state-run Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency, TIKA, gives Palestine about 30% of its humanitarian aid designated for the Middle East and Africa, and has carried out around 400 projects across Gaza, Jerusalem, and West Bank including building Turkish schools.
TIKA is also involved with preservation projects in the Noble Sanctuary, including the old Ottoman archives.
Seems to me, the figure is around $30 million a year in humanitarian aid but I could be off on that.
If I were to choose a regional leader, it would be Ramzan Kadyrov.
The Republic of Chechnya has done far more in the Middle East than TIKA over the years, including weekly, and at least monthly shipments of hundreds of tons of humanitarian aid, and has promised to rebuild the destroyed mosques in Syria.
Kadyrov has built orphanages and schools, Chechnya and Syria made agreements on other construction projects.
The very first deployments to Syria of Putin’s recently formed Military Police of the Russian Federation, the uniformed law enforcement branch of the Russian Armed Forces trained in civilian policing, were largely composed of Chechen and other Caucasian personnel.
Their first assignment under the Russian Military Center for Syrian Reconciliation was Aleppo at its liberation.
The Swiss Army tool of the Russian armed forces, they conducted themselves skillfully, honorably and with distinction, interacting with the Syrian people, assisting local civilian police and serving as counter-terrorism forces, delivering Russia’s humanitarian aid and assisting with distribution.
Being mostly Muslims, and many veterans of the Chechen wars, the MPs understood the war conditions the Syrian people were experiencing, shared the same Islamic culture and conservatism of Syrians.
The Syrians just love the MPs, especially the Chechens. And, Kadyrov hoped that the good experience the Syrians had with the Chechen MPs would help blot out the terrible experience the Syrians had at the hands of the Wahabi Chechens of al Qaeda and ISIS.

The great Umayyad Mosque in Aleppo and the Khalid ibn Walid Mosque in Homs are currently being restored by the Chechen Republic’s Akhmad Kadyrov Fund. The mosques are set to reopen in August 2018.
I have no idea how much humanitarian aid that the Republic of Chechnya sends to Palestine.
I know that Kadyrov’s philanthropies has helped fund the building and restoration of mosques in Palestine — I know of one for certain was 2/3 funded by Kadyrov, a beautiful mosque in Abu Gosh, an Arab Israeli town outside of Jerusalem, the residents claimed to be of 16th century Chechen descent.
The 1948 Palestinian exodus from Lydda and Ramle, also known as the Lydda Death March, was the expulsion of 50,000-70,000 Palestinian Arabs when Israeli troops captured the towns in July that year.
The military action occurred within the context of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War.
The two Arab towns, lying outside the area designated for a Jewish state in the UN Partition Plan of 1947, and inside the area set aside for an Arab state in Palestine, subsequently were transformed into predominantly Jewish areas in the new State of Israel, known as Lod and Ramla.
The exodus, constituting ‘the biggest expulsion of the war’, took place at the end of a truce period, when fighting resumed, prompting Israel to try to improve its control over the Jerusalem road and its coastal route which were under pressure from the Jordanian Arab Legion, Egyptian and Palestinian forces.
From the Israeli perspective, the conquest of the towns, designed, according to Benny Morris, ‘to induce civilian panic and flight,’averted an Arab threat to Tel Aviv, thwarted an Arab Legion advance by clogging the roads with refugees, forcing the Arab Legion to assume a logistical burden that would undermine its military capacities, and helped demoralize nearby Arab cities.
[And the lying Jews complain about “Hamas-Hamas-Hamas” using Palestinians as ‘human shields’. What was this?]
On 10 July, Glubb Pasha ordered the defending Arab Legion troops to “make arrangements…for a phony war”.
The next day, Ramle surrendered immediately, but the conquest of Lydda took longer and led to an unknown number of deaths; the Palestinian historian Aref al-Aref, the only scholar who tried to draw up a balance sheet for the Palestinian losses, estimated 426 Palestinians died in Lydda on the 12 of July, of which 176 in the mosque and 800 overall in the fighting.
Israeli historian Benny Morris suggests up to 450 Palestinians and 9–10 Israeli soldiers died.
Once the Israelis were in control of the towns, an expulsion order signed by Yitzhak Rabin was issued to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) stating, “1. The inhabitants of Lydda must be expelled quickly without attention to age.…”.
Ramle’s residents were bused out, while the people of Lydda were forced to walk miles during a summer heat wave to the Arab front lines, where the Arab Legion, Transjordan’s British-led army, tried to provide shelter and supplies.
A number of the refugees died during the exodus from exhaustion and dehydration, with estimates ranging from a handful to a figure of 500.
The events in Lydda and Ramle accounted for one-tenth of the overall Arab exodus from Palestine, known in the Arab world as al-Nakba (”the catastrophe”).
Some scholars, including Ilan Pappé, have characterised what occurred at Lydda and Ramle as ethnic cleansing.
Many Jews who came to Israel between 1948 and 1951 settled in the refugees’ empty homes, both because of a housing shortage and as a matter of policy to prevent former residents from reclaiming them.

Which is why the house key is such a powerful symbol for Palestinians. It’s found in Palestinian artwork and political speeches
The house keys prove their family’s ownership of the ancestral homes and properties they were displaced from.
Naturally, the Jews knocked down these pre-1948 homes as fast as they can by declaring them “illegal constructions” without Israeli building permits, evicting Palestinians out of their homes, razing them to the ground or else handed over to settlers, in order to destroy the evidence of Palestinian ownership.
Mondoweiss: Despite Israel’s threats of violence, Gaza protesters have peaceful dream
“What if 200,000 Palestinians headed peacefully to cross the border [into their ancestral home, now called Israel], while raising a poster that says they only want to go back to their land? What would happen?”
It all started in 2011 with that Facebook post, the dream of a 33-year-old man in Gaza named Ahmed Abu Ratima.
Gazing at a tree on the other side of the barbed fence that separates the Strip from the land now known as Israel, Abu Ratima thought, “Why can’t I go and sit under that tree just for a while, like a free bird?”
As the Arab Spring swept the region, Abu Ratima and his friends issued a statement titled “The Palestinian Refugees Revolution,” calling all Palestinian refugees to peacefully gather at the nearest point by the Israeli border to call for their rights.
However, at that time, they were considered crazy. But they didn’t forget. And this year, Abu Ratima and his friends found encouragement.
“People are ready for this idea now more than at any other time,” explains Abu Ratima, whose family originally lived in Ramle (now in central Israel).
Mondoweiss: ‘We will not wait 70 years more’: scenes from Gaza’s March of Return (Beautiful photos)
Amid thousands of semi-cultivated wheat and barley fields in the area of Abu Safia, east of Jabalia in North Gaza, around 30 beige canvas tents have been set up within 700 meters of the adjacent Israeli border fence, ahead of a six-week protest camp under the gaze of wary Israeli soldiers.
Those crops could hardly be seen due to tens of thousands of participants joining the encampment, an unprecedented number according to the organizers of the Great March of Return.
The first rally was kicked off on Friday, March 30th when Palestinians worldwide mark Land Day, commemorating the killing of six unarmed Palestinians protesters in Israel in 1976.
On the first day of the exceptional event, which was called by the Palestinian factions for the past several weeks, the Gaza Health Ministry reported that 15 Palestinians were killed by Israeli troops along the eastern border of the besieged strip.
Masses of angry young people tried to ignore the event organizer committee’s recommended safe distance from the border, but the tear gas bombs fired by the Israeli soldiers on the other side of the border forced them to back off.
Meanwhile, a wedding ceremony between groom Alaa Shahin and bride Maryam Hamdouna was able to capture the campers’ attention for a while with an unusual scene, a wedding in the middle of the growing tension at the border.
Alaa, 23, who was carried over his relative’ shoulders amid traditional wedding songs, said that this rally is the best place to start his new life.
“Few hundred meters away from those soldiers eyes, I would emphasize my right and the whole Palestinian peoples’ right to return home after 70 years of displacement, we will not wait another 70!” Alaa told Mondoweiss.
“Today, I will be at the nearest point of my home town Ni’ilya,” he said, adding, “with my wedding suit and tie I dance and sang with the melodies of the Return.”
Maryam’s family is originally from Majdal village — now Ashkelon in southern Israel — which was only 3 kilometers from Alaa’s village of Ni’ilya. Maryam, 21, explained, “It is said that there was a route linking Ni’ilya with Majdal, making its way between orchards. I told Alaa, one day, we will travel that route with our children at the time of the return of the country”.
Five main camp sites have been set up spreading the length of the coastal enclave from near the Erez border crossing in the north to Rafah in the south, which is adjacent to Egypt. Camping and protests are expected to continue until May 15, the anniversary of the Nakba and around the time the Trump administration is set to move its controversial embassy to Jerusalem.
Before leaving the couple’s celebration, I met Suad Abdrabbou, who just arrived with her grandsons.
Suad, 67, who numbered her tent “1967”, said that she felt heartbreak once she saw the border for the first time.
“I recall the 1967 war, once Israel occupied the lands where I used to harvest the sweet cactus and figs, but all that became nightmares”.
The grandmother, whose origin is also from Ni’ilya, has not believed in peace with the Israelis for a day. “We have experienced them over seventy years, so I should not wait to be 140 years to return”.
Some families moved many of their household items to the tents, meaning that they will spend a long time in the encampment. Military and political leaders in Israel seem concerned.
Israel’s Chief of Staff, General Gadi Eisenkot, has warned of escalating tensions along Israel’s borders and said reinforcements, including more than 100 special forces snipers, had been deployed to the Gaza frontier and the army was prepared for all scenarios.
“We won’t allow mass infiltration into Israel” or damage to the border barrier, he told the Yediot Aharonot newspaper.
According to the United Nations, some 1.3 million of Gaza’s 1.9 million residents are refugees or their descendants.
The event organizers said that tens of thousands of meals would be delivered for more than 100,000 expected participants, while dozens of wooden toilets were set up and large generators whirred to life.
Ahmed Abu Meteq (Photo: Mohammed Asad)
In the back row of demonstrators, 84-year-old Ahmed Abu Meteq recalled when the fathers and grandfathers of the youth protesting entered Gaza through those same borders.
“All I need is to return to Hiribya – located 14 kilometers northeast of Gaza – I would die over there. We don’t want to cross to others’ countries, we just would apply the UN resolution to go back home to our original villages,” Ahmed told Mondoweiss.
“I was 14 when my father said that we have 30 dunums in Hiribya, where we were planting watermelon which he said ‘was as big as your head, son’”.
Palestinians have long demanded that as many as five million of their compatriots be granted the right to return to their homes and lands. Israel rules this out, fearing an influx of Palestinians would eliminate its Jewish majority.
Israel argues the refugees should be resettled in a future state that the Palestinians seek in West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
Eisenkot is a propaganda fool trying to scare the Jews because Palestinians = Hamas = Terrorists.
“Infiltration” is defined as the action of entering or gaining access to an organization or place surreptitiously, especially in order to acquire secret information or cause damage.
“Surreptitiously” means to do something in a way that attempts to avoid notice or attention; secretively.
What’s so covert about the March of Return?
The Palestinians have had a March of Return for decades. This is the first time, however, that they’re doing so 1/2 mile away from the prison fence.]

Russia Insider: The REAL Holocaust: The 1915 Armenian Genocide and its Russophobic Origins
“As a result of the Jewish lobby’s recommendations, the Young Turks government removed Armenians from Anatolia in 1915. Hence, the economy of the country was left in the hands of Jewish capital.” - Ekrem Buğra Ekinci of The Daily Sabah Turkish newspaper, October 13th 2017.
The Ottoman Empire was historically a place where Jews could live without fear of persecution according to one of the Erdogan aligned newspaper the Daily Sabah.20
Indeed this tolerance extended into the post-Sultan era of the Young Turks, as the Encyclopedia Judaica noted that various Zionist groups were hopeful in 1908 for opportunities to press their interests; “the absence of antisemitism in Turkey made the idea [Jewish settlement in Palestine] possible”.21 Talaat specifically was very open to these ideas;
“Four years later Talaat even propagated the fantastic idea of a ‘Muslim-Jewish Alliance.’ The Balkan wars had plunged the Ottoman Empire into financial ruin and Talaat, who became a key member of the CUP’s ruling triumvirate following the military coup of January 1913, expected the Zionists to link the empire with the fabulous wealth of ‘world Jewry.’”22
Knowing this background of the states historical pluralism, alongside the progressive and secular motto of the new government and its noted tolerance of Jewish minorities, one has to ask how a genocide could have even been possible. How could such a progressive government proceed to horrifically genocide many of the states indigenous Christian populations?
If we take a closer look at the killings we come across many disturbing disparities in the treatment of these minority groups. After all in the Great fire of Smyrna catastrophe of 1922 the Christian Armenian and Christian Greek sections of the city were destroyed while the Jewish and Turkish sections were not.23
In 1918, three years after the passing of the Tehcir law, Talaat Pasha made a Turkish Balfour declaration equivalent expressing support for the establishment of Jewish Palestine.24 Clearly it is a strange sort of nationalism the Western world is unfamiliar with when the Jewish minorities are spared.
The Armenian Holocaust was not only unexpected by the victims but in fact it is still to this day denied by the perpetrator state Turkey. And until recently, the execution of the genocide itself was only known by third party observers, with the state of Turkey claiming the genocide was really just a civil war.
The only direct evidence of intentional genocide were in translated telegrams written in the 1921 published The Memoirs of Naim Bey which lost much of the source material telegrams.
In October 2016 however Prof. Taner Akçam found archived Ottoman telegrams confirming the legitimacy of various events from The Memoirs of Naim Bey and confirming that they were not mere fabrications for propaganda.25
Some Kurdish tribes acted as henchmen of the Turks and carried out the massacres of Christians, while other Kurdish tribes protected them.
Rudaw: Kurds and the Armenian Genocide
On April 24 every year, Armenians worldwide commemorate the genocide, in which between 1-1.5 million died under Ottoman campaigns that began in 1915.
Turkey acknowledges that during World War I many Armenians were killed, but claims the numbers have been exaggerated, and that killings were committed by both sides.
Ugur Umit Ungor, assistant professor at Utrecht University in the Netherlands and an expert on the Armenian genocide, told Rudaw that some Kurdish tribes helped the Ottoman government in killing Armenians.
He said that others, for example Kurds in Dersim and Mardin, resisted and helped the Armenians by giving them shelter, a hiding place or help in getting to Russian-held land.
“If many Armenians live now, it is because the Kurds in some areas protected them,” Ungor said.
“The leader of the Nurcu Movement Saidi Nursi, or Saidi Kurdi as the Kurds call him, was probably involved in rescuing hundreds of Armenian children by delivering them to the Russians,” he said.
Those who participated in the killings did so because of economic and geopolitical reasons, according to Taner Akcam, a historian at Clark University in the United States and one of the first Turkish academics to acknowledge and openly discuss the Armenian genocide.
“The Kurdish tribes were used by the Turkish government against the Armenians, because the Kurds claimed the same territorial area as the Armenians in eastern Anatolia. At the same time, the tribes wanted to gain economic advantages by killing Armenians,” Akcam told Rudaw.
The main responsibility for the massacres is blamed on the Ottoman State and its three leaders, Enver, Talat and Cemal Pasha.
From the 1890s the Ottoman Empire had “organized the Kurds against the Armenians under the so-called Hamidiye Regiment, which massacred the Armenians,” Akcam explained.
Others were instigated to murder by religious propaganda.
“Many uneducated Kurds were told that if they kill some infidels then they will go to heaven,” Ungor said.
Some Armenians escaped the genocide by converting to Islam or by hiding, sometimes growing up in a Kurdish family.
One example is Karapete Xaco, an Armenian musician born to genocide survivors. He later moved to Yerevan, the Armenian capital, and worked for Yerevan Radio, recording hundreds of songs in Kurdish and playing a major role in developing Kurdish music.
Last year Ahmed Turk, a Kurdish politician in Turkey, declared that the Kurds have their share of “guilt in the genocide, too,” and apologized to the Armenians.
”Our fathers and grandfathers were used against Assyrians and Yezidis, as well as against Armenians. They persecuted these people; their hands are stained with blood. We as the descendants apologize,” Turk said.
Woe is me for causing your coffee to go down the wrong way!
Joking apart, seemingly ridiculous opinions expressed here in do more often than not generate fact and thought provoking debate at the highest levels, the trick is we do need to get our facts right before utterances.
It has dawned on me latterly that your beloved father was 100% Greek? Knowing the depth of enmity between Turk & Greek, your reaction to my suggestion is understandable.
What we do agree on is the intolerable situation facing the Palestinians in the Holy Land.
Who is able to deliver them from the genocidal situation the West has engineered for them?
Russia? = WWIII War weary Syria? surely not?

RT: Iranian leader worse than Hitler, absolute monarchy is cool – Saudi crown prince
Seemingly discontent with just being the darling of the British establishment, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) is on a charm offensive to win over the American public as well.
The crown prince must have figured the surefire way to impress the US political establishment was by glorifying Israel and demonizing Iran, judging by his wide-ranging puff interview with The Atlantic’s editor in chief, [ultra-Zio-Jew] Jeffrey Goldberg, on Monday.
Channelling former President George W. Bush’s speechwriter, David Frum, MbS described his kingdom’s enemies as the “triangle of evil,” talking about Iran, the Muslim Brotherhood and Sunni terror groups like Al-Qaeda and Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).
“I believe the Iranian supreme leader makes Hitler look good,” bin Salman told Goldberg, without any trace of irony ‒ or evidence.
“Hitler didn’t do what the supreme leader is trying to do. Hitler tried to conquer Europe. … The supreme leader is trying to conquer the world.”
It was when speaking about Israel, however, that MbS brought out the big guns (though not the ones he bought from the US) in his charm offensive. According to Goldberg, MbS “did not have a bad word to say” about Israel.
To Goldberg’s question whether the Jewish people had the right to a nation-state in at least a part of present-day Israel, the crown prince replied:
“I believe that each people, anywhere, has a right to live in their peaceful nation. I believe the Palestinians and the Israelis have the right to have their own land.”
Though the interview took place before the recent killing of 18 Palestinians by Israeli authorities, Goldberg speculated that the incident would not have changed the crown prince’s mind.
“My meeting with Prince Mohammed took place before the recent fatal violence on the Gaza-Israel border, but I do not believe that the crown prince would have moderated his views in light of these events,” Goldberg wrote. “The Saudis, like many Arab leaders, have tired of the Palestinians.”
Mind you, that is the assessment of the Atlantic editor, who is known as an outspoken Zionist and served in the Israeli military, rather than the Saudi crown prince.
Filtering the subject through his personal prism is not a bug, but a feature of Goldberg interviews - such as the one with former President Barack Obama, published in March 2016.
I see that yesterday CNN’s Chritian Anampour, propaganda chief of the savage Jewish war machine, had some Jewish Brit on her show prattling on about anti-semitism.
On the same day the IDF, was laying prone behind an earthen dam, in full body armour, using rifles to snipe away a bunch of Palestinian kids and women, some armed with their usual weapons of mass destruction — stones.
England’s declaration of war on Russia is untenable, but like the sanctions, wherever it leads (and trust me there is method in their madness) it will not end well for Britain nor its embarrassingly pathetic Masonic Jew lackies.
Those who did not “me too” to this farce have done both themselves and the Russian agenda a huge favour.
The lines are more clarified than before. Russia can proceed to define the enemy without innocents being caught in the firing line.
That the guiding force behind this declaration of war on Russia is not the nation itself but a secret cabal is obvious.
You don’t entice a raging bull when you have nowhere to flee as is the case.
These politicians in England and all supporting countries should be tried for treason on the spot and given no quarter.
Israel-Gaza violence: Christians and Muslims attend vigil | Al Jazeera English
Orthodox Christians and Muslims in the Occupied West Bank have joined a march to remember those who were killed by Israeli forces in Gaza.
Palestinian Orthodox Christians have limited their celebrations on Palm Sunday, restricting the occasion to religious rituals to mourn the deaths of 17 Gazans killed in a protest on Friday.

Press TV: Saudi Arabia’s bin Salman recognizes Israel
Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has recognized Israel, stressing that Israelis are entitled to their own land.
“I believe that each people, anywhere, has a right to live in their peaceful nation. I believe the Palestinians and the Israelis have the right to have their own land,” said bin Salman during an interview with the Atlantic published on Monday.
“But we have to have a peace agreement to assure the stability for everyone and to have normal relations,” he added.
He added that kingdom has no problems with Jews and that “there are a lot of interests we share with Israel.”
He further noted that Saudi Arabia would establish economic ties with the Tel Aviv regime after conflict with the Palestinian Authority is settled.
The announcement is the latest step in the kingdom’s path moving towards normalization of diplomatic relations with the Tel Aviv regime.
On Friday, bin Salman met with the leaders of a number of pro-Israeli lobbying groups during his tour of the United States.
According to a leaked copy of his itinerary, the Israeli Haaretz daily reported that bin Salman had conferred with officials from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Stand Up for Israel (ADL), the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), Presidents’ Conference, B’nai B’rith and the American Jewish Committee (AJC).
Speaking in an interview with France 24 television news network on December 13, 2017, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said the kingdom has a “roadmap” to establish full diplomatic ties with the Tel Aviv regime.
The Israeli military’s chief-of-staff, Gadi Eizenkot, recently said the regime was ready to share intelligence with Saudi Arabia on Iran.
You will know them by their acts!!!
How laughably embarrassing for the Synagogue Of Satan to “back track” their order of sending black “Jews” Westward.

Well Boris, relief here, since now your reputation, credibility and future are all outward bound…into deep space. No doubt you will be accompanied.
What odds are available for Mossad in the wood-pile?
I see where Bibi’s plans to stock Germany and Canada with black African refugees has hit a wall in Germany at least.
Apparently the racist Israeli Jews did not even bother to consult the Germans about their plans so sure where they about their control of Germany.
I am sure Canada will take them even if Canadians aren’t consulted because the Jew boys definitely own Baby Trudeau.
The Jews shot and murdered another unarmed Palestinian today, making the death toll now 18, and an unknown number of Palestinians maimed and mutilated.
Remember this tweet by the IDF Spokesperson Keren Twitter feed on Mar 31 captured by B’Tselem admitted responsibility for Gaza killings only to delete the tweet within minutes (Exhibit A for war crimes/criminal mass murder)
The Israeli army posted a statement on Twitter on Saturday apparently accepting full responsibility for the killings a day earlier of 15 Palestinians as thousands took part in the Great March of Return in Gaza.
The army then quickly deleted the admission – as more evidence of war crimes by its soldiers came to light – but not before a copy was made by the human rights group B’Tselem.
“Yesterday we saw 30,000 people; we arrived prepared and with precise reinforcements. Nothing was carried out uncontrolled; everything was accurate and measured, and we know where every bullet landed”
( twitter.com/btselem/status/980042213718708224/photo/1 )
Not only did the Jews officially and publicly accept responsibility (only to scurry to erase that evidence from Twitter), there now exists overwhelming evidence for all the world to see that it was all organized targeted murder and mayhem– premeditated and intentional war crimes. Direct orders were given for same which makes them patently illegal orders.
Official premeditation is evident from the class of jacketed ammo the snipers used which caused types of wounds that the Gaza doctors had never seen before, and of a type illegal to use in armed combat.
Israhell’s blatant pre-March announcement they’d be greeting the peaceful protesters with 100 snipers “authorized to use live rounds” against unarmed men, women, and children is impressive and a clear demonstration of the Jews delusional chutzpah that everyone else is to blame but themselves.
The victims of the Jews’ killing fields are the most guilty.
The Zeta-males of the IOF routinely absolves itself from any responsibility for the casualties with the mantra, “Hamas terror organization endangers the lives of Gaza civilians and uses them for the purpose of terror. Hamas is responsible for the violent riots and all aggression from the Gaza Strip.”
The bucktoothed, rabbit-faced Naftali Bennett, leader of the ultra-right The Jewish Home gave expression to this delusion in 2014 when Israel “mowed the grass” in Gaza with “surgical” aerial bombings when hundreds of Palestinians were killed, declared in a CNN interview that “Hamas is conducting massive self-genocide.” (Palestinians=Hamas=Terrorists).
Bennett was thus already openly discussing the genuine implications of Israel’s usage of military force policies which resulted in the murder of 2250 Gazans, and 11,000 were wounded — including 3,374 children, of whom over 1,000 were left permanently disabled.
He attempted to make the crime acceptable by blaming the victim which the terminally deluded Zio-christians eat up, but his recognition of the scale of the bloodletting reflected the fact that he clearly understood the reality and nature of the war crimes committed by Israel.
Afterwards, they go into overdrive with brilliant and subtle hasbara claims Hamas set them up (”Palestinians=Hamas=Terrorists”).
The human rights group B’Tselem — The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories has been on the front lines with the Palestinians since 1989 — published a warning in advance on the 29th about Israel’s military preparations and threats to “shoot-to-kill unarmed Palestinians.”
B’Tselem: Gaza not “combat zone”, shooting at demonstrators a crime
The Gaza Strip 29 March 2018
Ahead of the Palestinian demonstrations planned to start tomorrow (Friday) in Gaza, Israeli officials have repeatedly threatened to respond with lethal force.
Completely ignoring the humanitarian disaster in Gaza and Israel’s responsibility for it, they are couching the planned protest in terms of a security risk, framing the demonstrators as terrorists and referring to Gaza as a “combat zone”.
Fragments of information reported by the media indicate that: soldiers will be ordered to shoot anyone coming within 300 meters of the fence; snipers will fire at anyone touching it; live fire will be used also in circumstances which are non-life-threatening.
In other words: shoot-to-kill unarmed Palestinians taking part in these demonstrations.
Israeli forces have already been lethally shooting Palestinian demonstrators in Gaza for some time.
In December 2017 alone – the most lethal month in the last year – Israeli forces shot and killed eight unarmed Palestinian demonstrators in Gaza.
Expanding this unlawful use of live fire will undoubtedly raise the death toll.
Yet this predictable outcome appears not to have affected Israeli decision-making regarding the response to demonstrations in Gaza, both in general and specifically in formulating the open-fire orders.
Further, Israel’s presumption that it can dictate the actions of Palestinians inside the Gaza Strip is absurd.
The decision where and whether and how to demonstrate in Gaza is not Israel’s to make – not with regard to tomorrow’s demonstrations nor in general with regard to daily life.
Official Israeli statements have made no reference to the actual reason for the protest – the disastrous reality in Gaza – or to the right to free protest.
Israel has the power to immediately change life in Gaza for the better, but has chosen not to do so. It has made Gaza a huge prison, yet forbids the prisoners even to protest against this, on pain of death.
( btselem.org/press_releases/20180329_gaza_strip_not_a_combat_zone )
Several months ago, I mentioned that the Israeli Diaper Forces routinely and intentionally aim their shots at arm- , leg-, knee- and hip-joints especially targeting young boys and adolescents to maim for life.
The Jews have been doing it for decades. It’s their favorite weapon — crippling a generation for life.
One 12 year old, well away from the 300 meter militarized exclusion zone (the length of three football fields for scale) imposed on Gaza territory, and certainly not throwing the Palestinians favorite weapon of mass destruction — the handheld or slingshot rock — was sniped in the leg while watching everything going on.
Now, Gaza trauma surgeons are removing “explosive bullets” which really look like some kind of high explosive full metal/copper jacketed bullets to me, and not just some kind of dum-dums.
They look similar to .50 cal high explosive armor piercing rounds, but made on a much smaller scale, judging by what the Gaza trauma surgeons say, that the entry wounds are very small.
A trauma doctor in Gaza treating the 750 severely injured Gazans in the Great March of Return massacre offers photographic evidence on Twitter that the IDF used “exploding bullets” to maximize the damage done.
The injuries are gawdawful (brace yourselves), and the doctors haven’t seen these kinds of wounds before. The bullets make entry wounds of just a few mm and are blowing out round exit wounds the size of softballs (no exaggeration), mangling an pulverizing bone and obliterating entire bone joints.

Ynet: Dying on the fence of the Gaza prison — Hagai El-Ad
Op-ed: From time to time, control over another people requires days of killing and slaughter. More bloody days lie ahead. But don’t expect accountability. ‘Investigations’ are merely a routine stage in the organized whitewash.
…In December 2017, former Prime Minister and Defense Minister Ehud Barak touched on the same subject, warning that “an attempt to implement the one-state agenda will lead to a situation where some of the members of the military and the Shin Bet—who under Israeli law are not merely permitted to disobey an illegal order, but are obliged to do so—are liable not to follow the orders they receive.”
Barak failed to mention the real danger, however: that some of those who receive these overtly illegal orders would obey.
On Friday, once again, this is what happened: The orders were illegal, and a military operation commanded, according to reports, by the chief of staff himself, realized the danger that Barak failed to mention.
Soldiers obeyed, and Palestinians were shot with live fire, over a period of many hours. The scale of the casualties was clear to the Israeli leadership, but no one stopped it.
Not after a hundred injured Palestinians, and not after many, many more.
The IDF Chief-of-Staff, Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot (GE), stated in an interview to the Jerusalem Post a few days ago before the Great March of Return:
Q-How worried are you about the mass march in Gaza and the protests planned for this Friday?
GE: We are reinforcing the barriers and a large number of IDF soldiers will be stationed in the area to prevent any attempts to trespass into Israeli territory.
Our main goal is to prevent civilians, especially women and children, from being harmed. We are adamant about preventing any incidents.
Q: Will there be any firing of weapons?
Opening fire will be allowed if someone is harming security infrastructure and there is a threat of a dangerous crime. Last year, hundreds were injured while they were trying to destroy part of the fence. We will not stand for this.
( .jpost.com/Magazine/The-view-from-the-top-547435 )
Dear, dear General Eisenkot, you pinhead.
It was your duty and responsibility to stop the carnage as soon as it started since, contrary to what you stated were the orders you gave, your cowardly troops were firing on unarmed Palestinians on non-Israeli territory well away from the prison fence posing no threat of “harming security infrastructure” or “threatening any other dangerous crime.”
You state your orders were to “prevent civilians, especially women and children, from being harmed, and that ” We are adamant about preventing any incidents.”
How do you explain the 18 dead and the hundreds wounded and maimed including women and children who were well away from the fence, who were shot in the back while prostrate in prayer, or running in the opposite direction away from the fence and hundreds of yards away from it, or the random number of Palestinians being shot in crowds?
You are either a phenomenal liar, publicly saying one thing but giving orders for another; or you are a cowardly, derelict and inept chief-of-staff, top commander of the IOF, who failed to stop the mayhem and carnage conducted in violation of your orders; or else you condone the actions of troops after all; or all three.

Russia Insight-Rossiya24: President of Czech Republic Milos Zeman Rejects British Ludicrous Claims & Demands Proof Instead of Accusations
Here’s how the system works ie. if the system thinks you are a potato head
One. We blame Russia for a red flag attack on Scripal and daughter
This does two things
1. It dehumanises Russia
The first thing you do when you colonise is dehumanise. They have had hundreds of years of practise.
2. It makes England look so lily white - look how outraged we are - the inference is that the UK are such a good lot.
This also goes hand in hand with their “civilisation of the natives” meme ( they did no such thing ) in their 300 years of dehumanising colonization.
However Mr Aitkenhead ( how appropriate ) of Porton Down admits he can’t trace it back to Russia — because he can’t and that must come out eventually
England pulls out the real kicker — well it must have come from Russia because there is no other explanation.
I.e., it gives the impression (emphasis) that no other explanation is possible. England could not possibly pull such an underhand, spiteful and treacherous stunt - it’s not in our blood.
That is the meme that they are going for in people’s minds.
But they fail to allow for one thing;
“Britannia” no longer “rules the waves” - the airwaves that is.
People are now free to be informed, analyse and think for themselves. Gotcha. The game is over.
The 300 year old game of oppression which you fail to see is over.
You are no longer dealing with potato heads.

Mehdi Hasan: Israel Kills Palestinians and Western Liberals Shrug. Their Humanitarianism Is a Sham
“IF THE CONCEPT of intervention is driven by universal human rights, why is it — from the people who identify themselves as liberal interventionists — why do we never hear a peep, a word, about intervening to protect the Palestinians?”
That was the question I put to the French philosopher, author, and champion of liberal (or humanitarian) interventionism, Bernard-Henri Lévy, on my Al Jazeera English interview show “Head to Head” in 2013.
The usually silver-tongued Levy struggled to answer the question.
The situation in Palestine is “not the same” as in Syria and “you have not all the good on one side and all the bad on the other side,” said Levy, who once remarked in reference to the Israeli Defense Forces, or IDF, that he had “never seen such a democratic army, which asks itself so many moral questions.”
I couldn’t help but be reminded of my exchange with the man known as “BHL” this past weekend, as I watched horrific images of unarmed Palestinian protesters at the Gaza border being shot in the back by the “democratic army” of Israel.
How many “moral questions” did those Israeli snipers ask themselves, I wondered, before they gunned down Gazan refugees for daring to demand a return to their homes inside the Green Line?
On Friday, the IDF shot an astonishing 773 people with live ammunition, killing 17 of them. Yet a spokesperson for the IDF bragged that Israeli troops “arrived prepared” and “everything was accurate. … We know where every bullet landed.”
On Sunday, Israel’s hawkish defense minister, Avigdor Lieberman, roundly rejected calls from the European Union and the United Nations for an independent inquiry into the violence and insisted that “our soldiers deserve a commendation.”
To be clear, then: Israeli troops will continue to murder and maim Palestinians while the Israeli government guarantees that there will be no consequences for their actions.
So, where is the outcry from liberal interventionists across the West? Where is BHL, as Palestinians are being shot and wounded in the hundreds in 2018?
Where is the call from former U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair, whose 1999 speech in Chicago defending the concept of a “just war” and a “doctrine of the international community” became a key text for liberal interventionists, for a “no-fly” zone over Gaza?
Why does a guest speaker at Ariel Sharon’s funeral have nothing to say about the increasing number of Palestinian funerals?
Where is the moral outrage from former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, the famously pro-intervention, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of a “A Problem From Hell,” which lamented U.S. inaction in Rwanda, over the sheer number of unarmed Palestinians shot, killed, and injured in recent days?
How does she have time to retweet a picture of an elephant and a lion cub, but not to make a statement about the violence in Gaza?
Where is the demand from Canadian academic-turned-politician Michael Ignatieff, who was once one of the loudest voices in favor of the so-called responsibility to protect doctrine, for peacekeeping troops to be deployed to the Occupied Territories?
Where are the righteously angry op-eds from Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times, or Richard Cohen of the Washington Post, or David Aaronovitch of The Times of London, demanding concrete action against the human rights abusers of the IDF?
And where is the appeal from former U.S. Secretary of State and arch-interventionist Madeleine Albright for economic and financial sanctions against the state of Israel?
For an arms embargo? For travel bans on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Lieberman, and IDF chief of staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eizenkot?
Their silence is deafening — and telling.
Palestinians, it seems, have been so dehumanized that they don’t deserve a humanitarian intervention; their blood is cheap, their plight is unimportant, and, perhaps above all else, their killers are our friends.
These named are the faces of John Bolton, too.
It’s good to know someone gets it.
A Special Relationship Born in Hell
The United States should cut all ties with war criminal Israel
Phil Giraldi - Council for the National Interest
If you want to understand what the “special relationship” between Israel and the United States really means consider the fact that Israeli Army snipers shot dead seventeen unarmed and largely peaceful Gazan demonstrators on Good Friday without a squeak coming out of the White House or State Department.
Some of the protesters were shot in the back while running away, while another 1,000 Palestinians were wounded, an estimated 750 by gunfire, the remainder injured by rubber bullets and tear gas.
The offense committed by the Gazan protesters that has earned them a death sentence was coming too close to the Israeli containment fence that has turned the Gaza strip into the world’s largest outdoor prison.
President Donald Trump’s chief Middle East negotiator David Greenblatt described the protest as “a hostile march on the Israel-Gaza border…inciting violence against Israel.”
And Nikki Haley at the U.N. has also used the U.S. veto to block any independent inquiry into the violence, demonstrating once again that the White House team is little more than Israel’s echo chamber.
America’s enabling of the brutal reality that is today’s Israel makes it fully complicit in the war crimes carried out against the helpless and hapless Palestinian people.
So where was the outrage in the American media about the massacre of civilians? Characteristically, Israel portrays itself as somehow a victim and the U.S. media, when it bothers to report about dead Palestinians at all, picks up on that line.
The Jewish State is portrayed as always endangered and struggling to survive even though it is the nuclear armed regional superpower that is only threatened because of its own criminal behavior.
And even when it commits what are indisputable war crimes like the use of lethal force against an unarmed civilian population, the Jewish Lobby and its media accomplices are quick to take up the victimhood refrain.
Last week, the Israeli government described the protests an “an organized terrorist operation” while Gazans are dehumanized by claims that they act under the direction of evil Hamas to dig tunnels and rain down bottle rockets on hapless Israeli civilians.
The reality is, however, quite different. It is the Gazans who have been subjected to murderous periodic incursions by the Israeli army, a procedure that Israel refers to as “mowing the grass,” a brutal exercise intended to keep the Palestinians terrified and docile.
The story of what happened in Gaza on Friday had largely disappeared from the U.S. media by Sunday.
On Saturday, The New York Times reported the most recent violence this way: “…some began hurling stones, tossing Molotov cocktails and rolling burning tires at the fence, the Israelis responded with tear gas and gunfire.”
Get it? The Palestinians started it all, according to Israeli sources, by throwing things at the fence and forcing the poor victimized Israeli soldiers to respond with gunfire, presumably as self-defense.
The Times also repeated Israel’s uncorroborated claims that there were gunmen active on the Gazan side, but given the disparity in numbers killed and injured – zero on the Israeli side of the fence – the Palestinian shooters must have been using blanks.
Or they never existed at all.
The Israelis reportedly also responded to “suspicious figures” on the Gazan side with rounds from tanks, killing, among others, a farmer far from the demonstrations who was working his field.
Israeli warplanes and helicopters also joined in the fun, attacking targets on the Palestinian side. Drones flew over the demonstrators, spraying tear gas down on them.
One recalls that the major Israeli assault on Gaza in 2014 included vignettes of Israeli families picnicking on the high ground overlooking the assault, enjoying the spectacle while observing the light-and-sound show that accompanied the carnage.
At that time, more than 2,000 Gazans were killed and nearly 11,000 were wounded, including 3,374 children, of whom over 1,000 were permanently disabled.
If the current slaughter in Gaza continues, it would be a shame to forego the entertainment value of a good massacre right on one’s doorstep.
Old Slavic proverb: The Jew will cry out in pain as he beats you.
Looks like Trump was just playing all the flyover country good ole boys and is just another shabbus goy Zionist Neocon.
He’s turning out to be GW Bush 2.0, not the great American hope/all that MAGA campaign trail promises BS he said.
Hillary’s not locked up, there is no wall, the economy still sucks, America is still at war for nothing Overseas, etc.
Malaysia’s parliament on Monday passed a law prohibiting fake news that critics fear will be abused to silence dissent ahead of a general election.
Yea verily, Jews keep tight control on laws that regulate the media. Fake news laws are another Zionist scam to control what we see, hear, and read in mass media. It’s not called the Jews Media for no reason.
A few years ago the Jews were floating the idea that 1st Amendment civil rights to freedom of the press were only for “certified” journalists, reporters, and such Jew controlled puppets. The idea was to prohibit non-puppets from freedom of speech, freedom of the press, 1st Amendment rights.
The true motive for why the pilgrims were so concerned about freedom of speech and freedom of religion which are covered in the 1st Amendment had nothing to do with radio, TV, jewspapers -
Freedom of Religion, Assembly
On another topic - the Migrant Invasion -
It will be interesting to see if Trump holds true on using the US Military to turn back the “caravan of illigal immigrants” like Trump talks about.
Currently several caravans of invaders/refugees are coming from Central America through Mexico to “turn themselves in” at the US border for “political asylum,” housing, food, clothing, welfare, and free government services that regular US citizens don’t get.
The real reason the Zionist Jews are flooding the formerly white Christian nations with foreign invaders is to weaken or destroy the old Christian Order and culture so they can replace it with their Jew World Order.
The hypocrisy of Bibi Satanyahoo is stunning, absolutely stunning! (not to mention: deceptive re Israel’s Africans and where they should go).
Have been following Israel’s migrant influx closely for quite some time now, and my Jewish “friends” refuse to comment.
Wha’s up with that? But I digress. . .). Sigh.
Surely in Dante’s Hell there must be a circle for terminally stupid Judeo-Anglo-American political and intellectual elites.
RT: Grammar mistakes mean you’re a paid Kremlin troll, says Atlantic Council fellow
If you’re a Russian immigrant in the United States — or anywhere else — don’t bother tweeting your opinions unless your English is flawless. Otherwise you’ll be branded a Kremlin-paid troll by influential American think tanks.
Eagle-eyed Ben Nimmo, a fellow at the Atlantic Council, has tweeted advice for Twitter users to help them identify “Russian troll-factory accounts” on the social media platform.
What gives the Russian trolls away, Nimmo advises, is their tendency to use imperfect English. For example, Nimmo highlights the “inability” of so-called Russian trolls to use the words ‘a’ or ‘the’ because the Russian language itself does not use definite or indefinite articles.
Graciously, Nimmo accepts that simply using imperfect English alone may not be enough evidence to outright brand someone as a paid Kremlin agitator, but if you’ve also been tweeting certain anti-Western “narratives” or indeed articles published by RT — then it’s a sure thing.
In other words, if you’re a non-native English speaker and you tweet anything that could be perceived as being against Western foreign policy, you’re probably working for the Russian government.
Russian-born investigative journalist Yasha Levine responded to Nimmo’s tweet thread calling it “anti-immigrant crap” and explaining that most Russian immigrants he knows occasionally make mistakes like the ones described by Nimmo.
In further tweets, Levine asked Nimmo if he and his family should be “smeared as Russian propaganda bots” for making a simple linguistic mistake and noted how strange it was that this kind of anti-immigrant sentiment was now seen to be acceptable by American liberals.
Levine’s tweets are unlikely to make Nimmo change his mind. He has continued to obsessively tweet screenshots of accounts he suspects of being trolls or sharing ties to the Kremlin, including the account of world-renowned Ukrainian-American pianist Valentina Lisitsa.
So, shape up, Russian immigrants. Nimmo and his fellow troll hunters are on to you.
According this nimwit, Ben Nimmo (who looks more Hebish though his surname is Scottish), Information Defense Fellow with the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab and Grammar Police, my very high IQ nephew who has always been indifferent to English grammar writing or speaking, and some of his tweets border on gibberish, is actually a congenital Russian troll.
Most Russians I know write better English than do a very hefty percentage of Americans, who are growing more functionally illiterate everyday.
And no, a kosher kilt sporting the colors of Israhell and Scotland invented by Scottish Jew rabbi will never make a Hebish a Scot.
What the infernal Jews perpetrate in Gaza — Live by it, die by it.
Google Chrome Caught Stealing Files.
I Spy: Google Chrome Caught Discreetly Scanning All Files on Your PC
A new anti-virus feature employed by one of the most popular web browsers in the world has apparently stirred privacy concerns among some users due to the tool’s discreet nature…
More absurdities from the IDF Spokesperson Twitter feed.
We all know by now that as soon as a Palestinian even inadvertently crosses into the IDF’s long standing designated and arbitrary “300 meter” kill zone on the Gaza side of the prison fence they will be shot to kill or maim by snipers. 300 meters is about 1/4 of a mile distance.
As if the IDF has so precisely marked “300 meters” from the fence. “300 meters” is what the Jew says it is according to Jew math — 300 meters=500 meters =700 meters =300 meters. Most of the land adjacent to the prison fence is Gazan farmland, which the Jews also spray with Monsanto to kill crops and keep their so-called militarized “300 meters” barren.
This is not new policy just for the March. It’s standard operating procedure for years.
Ask the dozens of dead Palestinian farmers, including the farmer murdered by a tank round which injured another, while out harvesting some crops on his own land to go sell at the market in the early morning just prior to the start of the March.
Yet, to justify their murderous actions, the IDF has posted new undated photographic “evidence” of a single male shown on infrared video (obviously night time) sneaking up on the prison fence, picking up a stick and beating the tar out of it. It opened up some of the wire as several more male figures are seen approaching, passing through the opening, and after a couple of steps, turn around and re-enter the Gaza side.
This is Hamas=Palestinian=Terrorist “damage to infrastructure and inflitration”. Looks more like teen boys on a risky nighttime “double-dare ya” gambit than anything aggressively militant.
This, too, is probably from undated stock infrared surveillance footage from anywhere along the 66 km of prison fence, but in no case does it contain anything that connects it to the locales of the five tent-cities and the March of Return protesters, or any of their protest activities.
The next item IDF Spox posted containing daylight snapshots:
“Yesterday, Monday April 2nd, IDF troops located a bag that was placed next to the security fence during the violent riot that took place on Friday, March 30th. The bag was filled with ready-to-load firebombs aimed at harming IDF soldiers”.
Really? First of all, the backpack and its alleged firebombs are photographed on bare dirt with no context. No prison fence, no digital dating, nothing in the photo.
Not even a perspective as to what side of the prison fence the backpack was planted at, if Jew know what I mean.
Secondly, the “firebombs” are made out of glass bottles from ordinary international soda companies, including Coca Cola, which are marketed in Israel as well as Palestine, although not many can afford them, and besides, Palestine manufactures its own brands of soft drinks.
How do we know that’s not really plain, ordinary, Israeli water stolen from Palestine inside those bottles?
The prison fence is the most highly surveilled and alarmed fence in the world. So the Jews let the backpack just lay there with no one noticing for three days?
Another trick the IDF is doing, is showing footage shot with an extreme telescopic lens which visually foreshortens the distance between two objects in the photo or recording.
This piece of video footage makes it look like the Palestinian protesters are “storming the fence” when in fact they are at least a quarter of a mile away from it. This is for internal consumption.
The Ministry of Truth is trying to scare the bejabbers out of the Israelis themselves so they’ll continue to support Netanyahu and his gang of criminal thugs in uniform.
Dear The Englishman,
Ha! Should have warned me what you were up to.
I’m 1/2 Greek on my dad’s side (still alive and takes care of himself at 95 with a little assistance from my youngest sister and her husband).
My mother was half Scottish, and 1/2 Anglo-Saxon from the Fancher (Fanshawe line I mentioned some time back), who early married into the Cornell family line 9 and 10 generations ago in colonial British America. French, Pennsylvanian German, and Iroquois enters into the family tree from various maternal female lines.
My late husband was a Russian national with a Ukrainian last name, and I actually go to a Serbian church. Who can I be mad at?
My grandfather Antoni (Pappouli), fought in the Greek-Turkish “30 Day” War in 1897, was captured a prisoner of war by the Turks in Thessaly and held for 18 months before prisoner exchanges were made.
In 1902, Antoni immigrated to San Francisco and began a new life there, where he became very involved in Greek church and community life, was one of the founders of the Greek Orthodox Holy Trinity Church and helped build it; met and married my grandmother and they raised five kids.
My grandfather came from outside of Athens, but his parents had moved to Athens from the Pontus region of Anatolia (Asia Minor, now modern Turkey), having a 2500 year old history.
So, my father is Pontus Greek (Romios; Rhum) from his father’s side, and on his mother’s side Maniot from Peloponnese, where the first Hellenic War of Independence in 1821 was sparked, and in which the Peloponnesians played a major role liberating the peninsula and beyond.
The Maniots (Maniates) are the inhabitants of the Mani Peninsula, Laconia (where the word “laconic” comes from), in the southern Peloponnese, Greece. Maniots are described as descendants of the ancient Dorian population of the Peloponnese and as such related to the ancient Spartans.
Spartacus was as laconic as they come. “Molon Labe!” (Come and take!) responded King Leonidas I to King Xerxes I of the Achaemenid Empire, when he demanded that the Spartans surrender their weapons.
The terrain is mountainous and inaccessible (until recently many Mani villages could be accessed only by sea), and the regional name “Mani” is thought to have meant originally “dry” or “barren”.
In the early modern period, Maniots had a reputation as fierce and proudly independent warriors, who practiced piracy and fierce blood feuds. For the most part, the Maniots lived in fortified villages (and “house-towers”) where they defended their lands against the Frankish armies of Grand Prince Guillaume de Villehardouin and later against those of the Ottomans.
The Maniot women fought as hard as the men.
I harbor little personal animosity towards the Turks handed down from my family through the stories I remember from them, but have a healthy understanding of Ottoman history and modern Turkish politics. Turkish persecution of Christians still goes on, as it has for 550 years. The Cypress invasion and seizure, and the massacre of 10,000 Greek Cypriots is a raw memory only 44 years old this Summer.
When I was in high school in the 60s, I was a babysitter and sometimes vacation nanny for an immigrant Turkish-American family. The parents were well educated in the UK, very cultured, knew several languages, father was a professional, the mother a world class violinist and Classic music teacher, and all were naturalized citizens except the youngest daughter who was American born.
Sometime in my late 20s I made the acquaintance of a conservative and pious family of Muslim Turks (as naturalized Americans they were socially moderate), who never watched TV, and forbade their children to watch it, with one exception.
They owned a TV solely for the purpose of watching ‘Little House on the Prairie’ and their children grew up with the Ingalls family through 8 seasons of the TV series.
The father thought that, based on the autobiographical “Little House” stories written by Laura Ingalls Wilde, Little House and the Ingalls family characterized the best of American virtues.
He took the character of Charles Ingalls to heart, credible because the stories were about a real family man (he’d screen the books before letting his children read them), thought on Ingall’s practical wisdom born of simple faith, and once said to me, “Fathers are alike everywhere you go”.
He thought that the TV show also a better father and a practicing Muslim.
Only in California…
I won’t go into details about my grandfather’s treatment at the hands of his captors in Turkish prisons. If prison conditions in Turkey are horrible now, they were a hundred-fold worse in the late 1800s when there was no Geneva Convention.
Tsar Nicholas II was the author and initiator of the Geneva Convention called for the Great Powers, by the way, in bringing some sort of humane consideration to what John Quincy Adams, US President and former ambassador to the Russian Court once called “that Aceldama,” meaning all the centuries of the bloody contests of the European World.
What is far more important is that everything I ever learned about forgiveness I learned from my grandfather through my dad. Antoni every day prayed for his old captors, for the Turkish people, (not so much the Turkish government) and forgave them on a daily basis. He took the Lord’s Prayer quite literally.
That, and a little about the inscrutible ways of God and Providence.
Pappouli always wore longsleeved shirts and pants even at home so that his children would never see the scars and other damage on his body.
They knew of course that he’d been a POW and learned alot about the history of the struggle for Greek Independence, but he spoke very little about the horrors of war he’d gone through and the cruelty of his captors.
He also praised one Turkish officer as being “the best of men” for a small but significant act of kindness and condescension extended Antoni after his capture. He remembered a few Turks who’d shown some kindness, and stressed that there were good and evil people everywhere.
Only once did Antoni tell all of children about the war and the brutal circumstances of captivity after my dad was grown, being the youngest, and showed them some of his scars from whippings and beatings after capture and in prison.
He’d come to America, he didn’t want his children to remember his battered and scarred up body, and so grow up hateful and vengeful in the New World.
“We’re in America now. We are Americans, and we put this behind us!” he said of the Greek Acaldema.
Pappouli wept for joy when he saw the Statue of Liberty pass by on his way to Ellis Island and shouted “Hagia Nike!” — Holy Victory! Nike was the ancient Hellenic goddess of Victory, occasionally shown carrying a torch.
Antoni had once seen a photo of Liberty, and photos of the neo-classical government buildings in Washington, DC and was ecstatic. He’d read some of the American Fathers works translated into Greek. The White House, Capitol Hill made him think that America was the long lost daughter of ancient Athens. In a very large way, she was.
He fell in love with America because of Liberty, because until then, he wasn’t quite certain he would stay permanently.
He took her to heart, his “holy Nike,” for by coming to America he was leaving the pain, hardship, suffering, and heartbreak of the old world behind him.
At the same time, he was ambitious to find work to send money home to Greece. Papouli and his two brothers left Greece together — one to the UK, one to the East Coast of America, and one to the West Coast.
Papouli wasn’t such a romantic that he believed American streets were paved with gold as the immigrant recruiters claimed. He was looking forward to work, and opportunity in America was where you found it. “I have two hands. I’m a man. I can work and do anything. Here I can make a good living,” and that’s true wealth.
Papouli started out as a ditch digger, a farm worker, a dock hand, then became an independent teamster through WWI. He sent money to family at home, and helped build the Greek Holy Trinity Cathedral to see it finished in 1903, only to see it destroyed in 1906 by the Great San Francisco Earthquake.
The Greek Holy Trinity was named in honor of the Russian Holy Trinity Church where the Greek, Syrian, Serbian Orthodox used to pray and attend liturgy. Prior to that, all Orthodox pioneers to San Francisco had early formed an Orthodox fellowship, and received the Holy Eucharist from Russian chaplains aboard naval and merchant ships when they came into Port San Francisco.
Orthodox Christians from as far as Oregon would make the trip down to San Francisco when they heard that the Russian Navy was coming in.
Papouli saved money, but wasn’t so miserly that he couldn’t be charitable or tithe (and then some) to the Greek church. During WWI, starting his own independent teamster business as the sole operator, he was never out of work. He had made some connections on the docks. Antoni developed a reputation for being a fair, respectable, reliable and honest hauler.
So much so, that agents representing the War Department gave him preferred government contracts to haul military cargo to the San Francisco docks. Pappouli was very proud of the government ID issued to him because the naval docks were off limits during the war. His children worked in their father’s business, caring for and feeding the horses, and as supplemental labor for any hands he would hire for large, multi-wagon hauls.
Shortly after WWI ended, Antoni started a grocery and dry goods store with a real butcher counter. He’d partnered with a Chinese butcher to run it, and was modestly successful with that. The little market supported two large families in the process. My Gia-gia was a widow with a daughter, Antoni married her a later in life than usual, about 30 or so, and they had five more children. My Dad was the youngest born in 1923. The boys all grew up working in the grocery store.
The store was bought out by the city on eminent domain for the construction of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. The store stood where the first pillar of the bridge span starts on the San Francisco side. My father and the two younger boys then hired out as teamsters for the bridge company, but there was a lot of competition, and it wasn’t enough to make ends meet, for by this time the Great Depression had hit California.
The two oldest boys, my uncles, joined the Civilian Conservation Corps — the CCC.
The CCC was a major part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal that provided unskilled manual labor jobs related to the conservation and development of natural resources in rural lands owned by federal, state, and local governments. The CCC was designed to provide jobs for young men and to relieve families who had difficulty finding jobs during the Great Depression in the United States.
Maximum enrollment at any one time was 300,000. Through the course of its nine years in operation, 3 million young men participated in the CCC, which provided them with shelter, clothing, and food, together with a wage of $30 (about $570 in 2017) per month ($25 of which had to be sent home to their families).
In the meantime, the Greeks carried their portable culture to America — the Church, Tradition, the books, the Greek schools and folk culture and dance to the Greek communities in the New World. Once a community was established, they sent for a priest from Greece.
Forgiveness for personal enemies is hard to come by, but he firmly believed in the words of the Lord’s Prayer and he persevered, even through the Balkan Wars and then WWI which raised the passions of ethnic communities of all sorts to a fever pitch.
Forgiveness was not the same as forgetfulness, nor to Pappouli did it mean the lame sort of Christian pacifism that avoids being actively involved in politics as both a US citizen and for the sake of the Greek, Balkan and other Eastern Christian homelands All of his children went to Greek school in addition to public school, and thoroughly learn Greek history and language.
Dad said he remembered days when Papouli was depressed, or he woke up the entire house with his violent nightmares, as well as the daily suffering of living with old physical trauma to back, bones and joints.
He fought demons constantly, some who looked like his Turkish prison captors and torturers. Some of them had Greek, Slav, and Albanian faces, descendants of Christians who’d voluntarily for gain, or involuntarily at the point of the sword, been converted to Islam and were now Turks.
He fought himself to keep hatred of Turks or anyone out of his heart, often to the criticism of other Greeks.
Pappouli knew cacodemons, the spiritual kind. Dad said there were very rare days, usually around the anniversaries of his capture and later release as POW, that Pappouli would just have a “bad day”.
It would set in during Pappouli’s morning prayers at the home altar, and start whipping his prayer rope around telling “them” to be gone, and reciting parts of Psalm 91 along with the Jesus Prayer out loud.
He never demonized the Turks for their cruelty as others did as a rhetorical device, as harsh and critical as he was, especially when the Pontic Greeks. He knew what Satan can do in the way of sticking a thorn in the side.
Today we’d diagnose it as PTSD and “hallucinations”.
Papouli was much wiser about it. No utopian, he lived with the consequences of being in an evil, fallen world of which war is a large part as best as he could, devoted himself to Church, family and work. He thanked God for his own personal afflictions because they made him stronger spiritually, as well gratitude for his blessed wife and mother of his children, of great patience, forbearance, and wisdom, his confidante and energetic partner when he was not.
Gia-gia’s first husband had been killed in the same 1897 war that Papouli fought in, but in Cyprus.
“Vengeance is mine,” saith the Lord, and Papouli believed it in the depths of his soul that Christ would exact perfect justice in His own time.
I learned from Pappouli through Dad, himself an extraordinarily patient, wise and kind man despite all the reverses in his own life, that forgiveness is not saying, “It’s ok, everything is good” — it’s forswearing personal vengeance, and so being liberated from the personal passions of hate, bitterness, anger and revenge and the prison these passions create.
I’m always astonished at the very difference between the brightness of Brother Nathanael’s face, and the faces of many, many Jews because of their own pride, perpetual anger, hatred and bitterness against God and His Son, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ..
Pappouli died prematurely in 1938 when my dad was about 15. His old war injuries and pain, years of hard work, wore him out at about age 59.
Unexpectedly, he quietly and peacefully died in his sleep, a slight smile on his face. Dad said his eyebrows were raised as if seeing a delightful surprise. Gia-gia called all the kids to the bedroom to come see their father and kiss him goodbye, then sent the eldest son to the priest’s house.
Pappouli was a man at peace with God, the world, and Man.
Papouli was the freest man in the world.
Glory to God for all things.
Israeli soldiers “precisely targeted” unarmed innocent civilians, men, women, and children that were of no threat to them or anyone else!
Some of the civilians were even shot in the back while they were helping other wounded get away from the Israeli kill zone.
IsraHell, with all of its bluster, denials, and obfuscations sounds so much like it’s wicked step-mother, the British government in 1972, heaping lies upon lies about their massacre called Bloody Sunday.
Bloody Sunday, also known as the Bogside Massacre, occured on Sunday, January 30, 1972, in the Bogside area of Derry, Northern Ireland.
British paratroopers shot 28 unarmed civilians during a peaceful protest march against internment.
Fourteen people died: thirteen were killed outright, while the death of another man four months later was attributed to his injuries.
Many of the victims, some just young teens or “children” per UN definition for minors under 18, were shot while fleeing from the soldiers and some were shot while trying to help the wounded.
Other protesters were injured by rubber bullets or batons, and two were run down by army vehicles.
One protester was known to have been shot dead while approaching a paratrooper unit with his arms up in the air in surrender.
The march had been organised by the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association (NICRA). The soldiers involved were members of the 1st Battalion, Parachute Regiment, also known as “1 Para”.
Two investigations have been held by the British government. The Widgery Tribunal, held in the immediate aftermath of the incident, largely cleared the soldiers and British authorities of blame.
It described the soldiers’ shooting as “bordering on the reckless”, but accepted their claims that they shot at gunmen and bomb-throwers. The report was widely criticised as a “whitewash”.
The Saville Inquiry was established in 1998 to reinvestigate the incident.
Following a 12-year inquiry, Saville’s report was made public in 2010 and concluded that the killings were both “unjustified” and “unjustifiable”.
It found that all of those shot were unarmed, that none were posing a serious threat, that no bombs were thrown, and that soldiers “knowingly put forward false accounts” to justify their firing.
Bloody Sunday was one of the most significant events of “the Troubles” because a large number of civilian citizens were killed, by forces of the state, in full view of the public and the press.
I turned 20 that year.

Israeli leaders say “we know how to deal with tanks, infantry, airplanes. But if the Palestinians decide one day to march to Jerusalem we won’t be able to offer a military answer” The March to Jerusalem”.
Twenty-seven-year old Bobby Sands, after enduring years of solitary confinement and beatings, led the 1981 hunger strike, during which he was elected as MP for the constituency of Fermanagh and South Tyrone in the north of Ireland.
Bobby Sands was two years younger than me.
Bobby became an international figure who to this day continues to inspire not just Irish republicans in their pursuit of freedom from British rule but people around the world struggling for their rights.
A member of the Provisional IRA, he wrote this in his prison diary which he kept during his imprisonment. It was published years after his famous (and fatal) hunger strike for “political status” by the British government.
Bobby Sands was the officer Commanding IRA political prisoners, H-Blocks, Long Kesh.
Born 9th March 1954, died 5th May 1981 after sixty-six days on hunger strike.
He’d be 63 this year, if he’d lived.
In his prison diaries, Bobby Sands wrote:
“They will not criminalise us, rob us of our true identity, steal our individualism, depoliticise us, churn us out as systemised, institutionalised, decent law-abiding robots. We refuse to lie here in dishonor! We are not criminals, but Irishmen! This is the crime of which we stand accused. Never will they label our liberation struggle as criminal…Our revenge will be the laughter of our children.”- Bobby Sands
Jafar Alam, a Canadian Palestinian inspired by Bobby Sands words, wrote on his blog in 2010:
“We refuse to lie here in dishonor! We are not terrorists, but Palestinians. This is the crime of which we stand accused. Our crime remains that we were born Palestinian.”
Israhell, what will it be when 700,000 or more Palestinian refugees someday, perhaps even next year, just decide to get up out of their refugee camps and walk towards Jerusalem, crossing the borders of Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and elsewhere?
Your hate and paranoia runs strong, but the Palestinians are stronger and wiser.
Like the prickly pear cactus (sabra) that you perpetually try to eradicate, marking the farms and villages where the prickly pears were planted as fences and livestock pens, every time you mow the Palestinians down, the Palestinian roots grow deeper into the earth.
The whispering sands in the Arab desert say to Jerusalem — “We are coming.”
And you, foul Jews, will die in your sins and dirty deeds with all the blood of the innocent on your heads.
I do assure you there was no artifice on my part in giving reign to Turkey & its President, rather a foolhardy exercise in wanting to believe a local Empire of old could repeat ancient history.
But since clouds have silver linings, we the Family here at +BN’s Divinely Blessed site have a unique insight into its most incredible devotee.
We all should be mindful of your Dearest grandfather Antoni, the terrible experiences & suffering he went through in that bitter war with Turks only to bear witness to his faith.
Those prayers he gave his persecutors will I am sure bear fruit, from Heaven above his smile will grow & his demons will be banished.
To your father, who along with your mother created a wonderful person in you, as a family God Bless you all.
Finally I must acknowledge what you said about Brother Nathanael’s face it truly is Beautiful!

There used to be a very popular entertainer in the UK called Mr Pastry.
He is a Bolton lookalike, but with a sense of fun, not war.
They once produced a toy for him, which could do with a Bolton makeover.
Well I never! Yes! I remember Mr. Pastry, good, clean, slapstick comedy, he was great!
How ironic, the auction site (not far from me) should be selling a target face of a would be, could be, Mad John Bomb-em Bolton.
