Palestine Symphony

“I desire mercy, not sacrifice,” said Jesus in Matthew 9:13. As if to emphasize the point, he spoke the same words–again–in Matthew 12:7.

But the Jewish leaders were incapable of grasping the concept of “mercy.” They continued in their ways until they ended up “sacrificing” the Lamb of God himself.

The next Blood Moon will be on October 8.

Obama Administration Declassifies Documents on Israel’s Nuclear Program

netangeddonIn a recently-published article, Haaretz reports on documents pertaining to discussions held by US officials some 45 years ago, particularly during the early days of the Nixon Administration,  on Israel’s clandestine nuclear weapons program. The report makes clear there were some officials at the time, mainly Defense officials, who were adamantly opposed to Israel having nuclear warheads and who advocated the US taking a hardline against the program. Unfortunately, they were overruled by those, primarily State Department officials, who took the path of acquiescence and duplicity. It is the latter we have to thank now for the nuclear-armed menace in the Middle East.

By Ariadna Theokopoulos

Elizabeth Warren fully deserves the Shabbat Shiksa of the Week award for her recent statements during a town hall meeting in Massachusetts regarding Israel’s war on Gaza.

She said that Israel has the right to shell Palestinian hospitals and schools out of self defense as long as Hamas stores rocket launchers next to them.

[Why, indeed don't they store them hundreds of miles away?]

Did US Intelligence Tie Israel to 9/11?

5dancinisralsJustin Raimondo at Antiwar.com has published a rather striking analysis of a joint congressional intelligence committee report on the 9/11 attacks, including 28 pages that have been redacted out of the document but which have been read by certain members of Congress. The evidence–both in terms of the report and its redacted section, as well as the “Good God almighty!” sort of responses it elicited from a few Congress members–would point to some pretty potent conclusions about “foreign government involvement” in 9/11. And one foreign government that figures strongly in Raimondo’s analysis is our dear friend and ally, “The Only Democracy in the Middle East.”

‘Legitimate’ Targets?

gzgen3
[Ed. note: the author of the article below makes the important point that in its determination of what constituted "legitimate" targets in Gaza, Israel essentially set up a situation in which no one was able to opt out of the war or remain neutral.]

By Charlie Andreasson

This article was published before the recently agreed ceasefire.

High-rise buildings have now been declared as legitimate targets for F-16 aircraft attacks. Yesterday evening a 16 story house called Little Italy, home to 100 families, was destroyed.

Colonization by Bankruptcy: The High Stakes Chess Match for Argentina

If Argentina were in a high-stakes chess match, the country’s actions this week would be the equivalent of flipping over all the pieces on the board. – David Dayen, Fiscal Times, August 22, 2014

Israel Shahak on the Subject of Collaborators

Recently mainstream media reported on the execution by Hamas of Palestinian collaborators in the Gaza Strip. This of course is not a new phenomenon in the history of Palestinian resistance–collaboration with the Israeli occupiers by a small segment within Palestinian society dates back quite a few years, and of course it isn’t unique to Palestinian resistance either. Historically, all liberation movements, to one degree or another, have had problems with informants and collaborators.

Jewish Billionaires Make War on Iran

And the United States is Helping

By Philip Giraldi

There is a group of Jewish American billionaires who are apparently doing their best to make sure than negotiations with Iran go nowhere in the mistaken belief that they are doing what is best for Israel. And they would also appear to be assisted in their efforts by the White House, which is at the same time claiming that it wants the talks to be successful. The odd relationship is currently playing out in a Manhattan courtroom where the Justice Department is seeking to squash a lawsuit that it fears might expose the extent to which the government has hypocritically played fast and loose with classified information while simultaneously sending journalists and whistleblowers to jail over allegations that they have done the same.
