[ Ed. note – Whenever I see a picture of Nikki Haley it’s usually of her sitting in her chair at the UN, her face grimaced by a scowl. I’m pretty sure this is the only photo I’ve ever seen of her with a doting smile on her face. Below is an interesting article by Philip Giraldi, who explores the question of whether Haley is a “de facto agent of influence” for Israel. (Hat tip Ariadna) ]
The two videos above were posted by South Front a month apart, the one on Hezbollah capabilities posted on November 18, while the video assessing Israeli capabilities appeared on December 20. Some of the “scenarios” mentioned may play out sooner than many have expected…
[ Ed. note – The article below was originally published at The New Eastern Outlook website. It’s author, Petr Lvov, makes a compelling argument that Israel and Saudia Arabia are “backed into a corner and in a state of despair” over their failures in Syria and are now conspiring to create a scenario that would “force the US to attack Iran.”

Perhaps at some point we’ll see a sly Zionist pop up somewhere claiming the Kurds are an “ancient biblical people.”
(And doubtless, if so, he’d have plenty of money to buy off plenty of historians to “verify” his claim).
And maybe in the not-so-distant future we could even anticipate publication of a brand new modern English translation of the Bible with a rewording of the Book of Genesis to include the following: “So Abraham and his wife Sarah and his nephew Lot set out from Harran, but on the way they stopped off and got down and partied with their cousins, the Kurds, before heading off to conquer the land of Caanan.”
Don’t laugh. In the world we’re presently living in absurdities of this nature are well within the possible.
Seventy years ago today the United Nations adopted UN Resolution 181, which partitioned Palestine into an Arab state and a Jewish state. It was an act which led to 70 years of bloodshed and turmoil in the Middle East, and was the greatest blunder ever perpetrated by the UN.
Apparently the Trump administration is now intending to perpetuate the blunder. According to Vice President Mike Pence, Trump is now “actively considering” how to make good on his pledge to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Alan Dershowitz, former Harvard law professor and pro-Israel to the core, apparently thinks Rep. Betty McCollum has committed a cardinal sin–introducing a bill that calls for monitoring of Israel’s treatment of Palestinian child prisoners.
[ Ed. note – The article below was originally published in January of 1996. It discusses, among other things, the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, which had occurred only a few months earlier. The author, Donald Neff, was a journalist who worked many, many years in the mainstream media, including a term as Time Magazine’s Jerusalem bureau chief.
