Free Palestina

Free Palestina


We are all Palestinians

This fraudulent use of the Anti Semite strategy is a serious Zionist attack against Americans period.
Shouting Anti Semite fraudulently is comparable to shouting Fire in a crowded theater.  Shouting fire when there is none is a crime.  Shrieking the accusation of Anti Semite falsely along with the supposed victim being the author of anti-Semitic swastikas, and other offensive slurs.  It seems like almost a syndrome.  Vandalism. Adrenaline rush...addiction?

Do you think they sit in their segregated schools and debate if it's time again to traumatise the population again. Even when you know a physical attack is coming, it is still usually a shock.(I'm thinking of the Danish activist, he was shocked at the attack, he knew it happened but it still caught him off guard (just my impression of video)  He didn't even have time to reflexively protect his face and head, it looked like that weapon struck him right in his eye.

Use of the anti semite slur cost Helen Thomas her job, her public reputation changed from almost saintly and practical changed to a Racist, denounced in strident outrage.. Imo Helen Thomas was thrown out-over and under the bus, persona non grata, by this inane ruse.. She said the Israelis should get out of Palestine.  What is anti semetic about that?  The Europeans are there to exploit the privileges of apartheid

So for stating her private opinion (she was not speaking to an audience, in a professional capacity) So the zionista become hysterical. Someone has pointed out the plain truth, again.We can't have someone the public trusts for truth, actually being truthful about every thing, saying out loud we should go back to New York, France, all these. The entity cannot take the rise of truth. Dissent, truth cannot be tolerated under Jewish rule. In the eyes of zionists we are all Palestinians. I'm fine with that, I already know in my bones we are all Palestinians.

Same basic plan to coerce Richard Goldstone into retracting his report that the Israelis had done war crimes in the Gaza during the '08/'09 rampage of armies assaulting civilians by air, sea and land. The people of Gaza are imprisoned, nowhere to run to be out of danger. Ongoing assaults, malnutrition, stress, random beatings, deliberate murder, killing for sport or amusement? The Palestinians have endured a torture more deliberate and as painful as possible
IMO the Goldstone Report went out of their way to excuse the Israelis.  Goldstone had no access to Israeli representatives, they refused to cooperate in the investigation.
Goldstone, a cherished man of the tribe, a judge with an impressive career reputation, also a career zionist too.  His reputation was starved little by little, the world was privy to his prolonged humiliation, the veiled threats of harming his daughter, cracks under the pressure.  His reputation is irreparable, imo.
I suppose Goldstone is still cultivated as he may be further exploitation? 


Casual Cruelty

I've been haunted by this videoall through this 4th of July patriotic orgy.  My neighbors bought out the fireworks store and my poor dogs are traumatized from all the excesses of booms, cracks, thunderous flash bangs.  My mind went to the sixty-five long years of military excesses that the inhabitants of Palestine have endured. 

I wonder if the zionist entity's jets are still spitefully breaking the sound barrier to cause sonic booms.  After the expulsion of the illegal land usurpers in Gaza, the practice of terrifying the people of Gaza with night after night of such malevolent abuse was destabilizing, especially to children.

The video of the Israeli military/police person kicking a small child with all the casual cruelty of unabashed racism.   He would probably tell you he has no problems with Arabs, some of his best friends are Arabic, and not even a hint of irony.

If this had happened in the USA, those police personnel would be fired, retired and sued within an inch of their lives.  The people would insist that this go to court, we wouldn't stand for it, would we?

The video camcorders and  new technology are the Palestinians steadfast friend.  You can't call that vicious kick anything but what it was, a subtle form of ethnic cleansing/genocide and a man on child assault. 

The Israelis seem to slash out with no warning, not even trying to rationalize this anti social behavior.  They are drunk on hubris and are morally bankrupt.  The situation in Palestine is untenable.

Who could endure watching a child being viciously kicked?  Now suppose that child was yours....


Jonathon Pollard, Life means Life

O most generous and compassionate Americans, I know you will hear this plea and search your virtuous American hearts to find that the 'quality of mercy is not strained.'  Americans have the well deserved reputation for fair play and good sportsmanship.  
I'm leading up to  the remorseful, contrite, penitent,  who asks for your consideration in reducing his life sentence, that was cruelly imposed punishment for a harmless bit of espionage.

Espionage, a sanctimonious word, when all that was involved was a bit of youthful spying, nothing that would actually harm the omnipotent USofA.  Consider the circumstances, America had promised to share information with the wily zionist entity and was reneging!  What could Mr. Pollard do?  Stay true to his American roots or betray the nation that nurtured him to pay homage to Israel, the apple of Mr. Pollard's eye?
Jonathon searched his heart and eviscerated his soul in an agony of indecision, he even thought about scourging himself during this defining moment of his life, but settled for biting his finger & toe nails to the quick.

He could bear no more deceit or indecision and yes, he sold whatever his top-secret triple A  military clearances could access in the US government's top-secret files and hard drives.
He only sold the material to Israel, he rationalized, Israel our closest friend and stalwart ally.   Only sold America's top secrets for a few niggardly sheckles and the promise of a monument and a street named after him.   One Jew to one Jewish entity.  How was he to know what nefarious ends these 'friends & allies' would put our information to?

How could Pollard know that the secrets would be sold to China?

Americans!  I implore you to join war criminal Henry Kissinger and various other former elected dual citizens and their cohorts, Michael Mukasey, James Woolsey, Rep. Eliot Engle, George Shultz, Lawrence Korb, Dennis Ross, many many dual citizens and Israeli Firsters.  They say enough is enough.  I say Life means life and I say 'throw away the key.'  He only comes out when it's time for his burial.


AIPAC Comes to DC

On Monday, March 5, 2012, the Aipac conference will be in the U.S.A.'s capitol, Washington D.C.  Anyone who's anyone will be there, from President Obama, Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich and of course Israel's own obsequesious, Benyamin Netanyahu.

The conference is another chance for Netanyahu to attempt to browbeat Obama into war with Iran.
Netanyahu, who is no stranger to the arts of bullying will employ all of his multitudinous whiles to wheedle, coax, plead, coerce, nudge, manipulate, in plain words do whatever it takes to grab Obama by the ears and make him submit to his will.

His will is war.  His will is perpetual war.  He's only alive during war.  O what a vicarious thrill when there is war.  War with Iran in particular or war with Syria, he's not fussy.  War for war's sake and war to make money.  The bottom line is Israel must have war to have hegemony in the Middle East.

Imagine, if you will, the Middle East under the domination of irrational Israel.  Look at what this group of fanatics have wrought on Palestine and imagine if they had a free hand in the entire region.  The Israelis would try to take the Middle East back to Biblical times, with all the bloodshed that implies.

Look at what the Israelis did to Lebanon.  Look at Libya.  Look at Iraq which was a proxy war for Israel.
These zealots would turn the region into a genocided wasteland.  A region with nar an oasis, not fit for man or camel.

Please, if you are able, join in any of the anti AIPAC movements, from Occupy Aipac, to Jewish Voice for Peace, to Alison Weir's Council for National Interest (CNI)link to Occupy AIPAC 
and just  by using Google you come up with many many more anti Aipac actions  groups also include Code Pink, enough groups so that each and everyone of us will feel  comfortable with our choice.

This is not just another fund raising event for aspiring politicians, this is the premier event at which donations are pledged and some suggest our next president is annointed.  We must make a difference this year, with perilous war talk being bandied about like what to have for dinner.  I'd like to leave you with the classic civil rights anthem by the incomparable Sam Cooke:  


Khader Adnan makes deal to end Strike

We have news today from the Guardian that Khader Adnan has agreed to a deal with Israel to end his hunger strike, today on his 66th day with no food.  In exchange the Israelis have agreed to free him on April 17th, unless they find 'additional' evidence.

This announcement came just hours before the Israeli Supreme Court was to hear Adnan's case in regard to Administrative Detention.  This Administrative Detention means the prisoner has no idea of what s/he is charged with or what evidence has been gathered, if any.  The Israelis were terrified that the Supreme Court would rule against this egregious violation of human rights.

I found it particularly revolting when Israeli spokesperson Mark Regev said, (paraphrase) Other countries do it too, like a whiney 9 year old.

Khader Adnan is in hospital, no information if his legs and arm are still shackled, which to a person who's been without food for 66 days is extremely painful.  Even the Brits were not so cruel to Bobby Sands, they rigged a cage over Bobby Sands body because even a blanket was too painful, what with bed sores and blisters.

Of course Thatcher's Britain allowed ten hunger strikers perish before they bowed to world opinion.

Khader Adnan agreed to start eating immediately.  Bravo!


Gaza Reeling in the Dark

Limited electricity in Gaza  according to information in latest post.
Irish in Gaza's blogpost   This situation is a disaster for everyone because there will be no clean water, hospitals will be unable to operate.

This is another Zionist tactic to persecute the enclosed people of Gaza.  Another humanitarian disaster because of crowded conditions disease could run rampant.

People reading this, please read the link which is concise and succinct, offers information on what we can do, what those of us who care can do.

It is my opinion that electricity, in this day, is a necessity of life.  The zionist project has corralled 1.7 million people into the tiny Gaza Strip.  They have destroyed all the amenities of life and are now withdrawing the necessities.  Gaza has been under blockade since the 2007 capture of  Israeli Occupation soldier, Gilad Shalit.

At the end of 2011 the Israelis brokered a deal with Hamas to exchange over a thousand Palestinian prisoners for the return of Gilad Shalit, but they did not end their siege.

Remember when the rogue entity decided to put Gaza "on a diet"?
That is still ongoing, the checkpoints are still ongoing, the administrative detention is still on going, the attacks on Al Aqsa are still ongoing, the home demolitions, still happening, the imprisonment of 1.7 people now without electricity, still happening, bombs dropping and murder, a daily event.


#Dying2Live Adnan's Hunger Strike

Today, Wednesday, February 15, 2012 is the 60th day of Sheikh Khader Adnan's hunger strike.  Mr. Adnan is a political prisoner arrested by Israeli Occupation Authority, (IOA).  He is under administration detention in violation of International and Humanitarian laws.

Under administrative detention Adnan is not privy to the charges against him, what evidence the IOA has against him, and a litany of other abuses which is what Khader Adnan is protesting by his hunger strike.  If  Mr. Adnan does not survive, the responsibility will rest entirely on the IOA and the Israeli occupation itself.  His condition has deteriorated perhaps to the point of no return.

Twitter has many tweets concerning the hunger strike, hash tag #dying2live.  So many of us would choose food before dignity and that is what Adnan has done.  People stand in solidarity with Adnan around the world, we all admire a person who resists oppression.  The outcry from the world is for Israel to release Adnan immediately and to end their torment and persecution of Palestinians.  Israel must end their deliberate use of torture, administrative detention, and ignoring UN resolutions.  The United States must rouse their elected officials out of their apathy towards Palestine and their subservience to 'their best friend and ally.'
The US citizens are angry with our officials perpetually allowing Israel to exploit our country; to take our tax dollars and spy on us.  Jonathan Pollard gave our secrets to Israel, who then sold our top secret information to China!!

Yesterday Sheikh Adnan slipped into a coma.

This information comes from PIC and realistic bird's blog at her Silver Lining site.

This video is from the brother of an Irish hunger striker who died and the cousin of another Irish hunger striker.  The UTube site has many support videos for Khader Adnan and his family.
During the troubles of Bobby Sands' era.
This is a video of support and compassion for Mr. Adnan and his family.  It is quite moving:


The Caterpillar vs The Olive Tree

Is there anyone out there who hears the word Caterpillar and does not immediately think of Rachel Corrie?  Her life was brief but her impact is still earth-shaking. 

Rachel dedicated her life to humanitarian causes.
Her family could not persuade the elected officials of Congress to investigate her death.  United States elected officials are very reluctant to question anything that Israel does.  It isn't likely that you're unfamiliar with her biography but on the off chance you are; she was crushed to death in Palestine by an Israeli driving a Caterpillar Bulldozer.

The Israeli government put the soldiers that buried Ms. Corrie alive on trial.  The bulldozer driver testified behind a screen, supposedly for his protection.  I'm not sure how that trial ended, you see the main stream media in the USA have a habit of omitting any information that is critical of Israel.

Now why did I bring up  the Olive Tree and say versus the caterpillar? 

The Olive Tree signifies Palestine.  The olive tree can live for centuries.  I don't know how to care for an olive tree, but in my opinion, they require little.  They are sturdy and live in a rugged desert ecosystem.  These trees are the very symbol of peace.  The olive tree can live for centuries and the fruit they bear have many uses.  These are living beings, they are loved and nurtured by the Palestinian families that nurture and love them.

The Caterpillar represents Israel.  A machine for destroying trees, homes, livelihoods and people.
The bulldozer is not a living being.  They are not loved, they are maintained and exploited to cause human suffering.  They do not make the desert bloom, they make the desert barren.

Which will prevail?  Will it be the heartless metal moster that is Zionist or will it be the living, breathing bearer of fruit?


AIPAC Conference - A polite rant

AIPAC Conference to be held in Washington D.C. soon has released their roster of guest speakers.  I agree with Mantiq Al Tayr that AIPAC's Conference of Traitors (hereafter referred to as COT) list of guest speakers are dull, monotonous, and in the case of USA government officials, too subservient and beholden to give a speech that will keep a person awake.

I have been mulling over this conundrum for the last week and am embarrassed to report that I'm hard pressed to come up with any overt-zionists with enough pazzazz or razzle-dazzel to rock the conference and raise those funds for AIPAC's many goals here in USA.
Here are a couple of entertainers, all Tribal members, and with the exception of Gene Simmons, I have no idea of the politics of the other two.
I promise to update this post with links, maybe flesh it out a bit, stuff I'm too pressed for time to deal with tonight.

Looking forward to any/all responses from Mantiq & the Flock, will not pluck any feathers in the hope of preening them in a bid for attention and justice for all under occupation and imprisoned.

  • Gene Simmons from the rock band Kiss is a fervent zionist, he could probably still get his feet into those platform boots and squeeze into his trademark spandex space suit.  With enough make up + wig he could have a double do his act, there are Kiss tribute bands too, I think.  That will have hoi polloi on their feet, flicking their Zippos, jamming to the oldies, with their signature song:  "I wanna rock & roll all night; and party everyday."  Could be a winner.
  • Pink, a relative newcomer, compared to Kiss anyway.  Maybe she could get the crowd rockin and waving their hands in the air, like they just don't care, with her #1 hit, "I'm comin up & you better get the party started."  She's upbeat & doesn't mind showing a little skin a la "Lady Marmalaide."
  • Daniel Tosh of the Comedy Central Show:  Tosh.0, a fresh young comedian with a repertoire of risque, daring and spicy humor.  He would be my choice if I were booking for the COT, just because of his ability to make me laugh & he would definitely make the audience squirm.


Dual Citizenship Nixed for Submarine Crew

No dual citizens need apply to train for elite Israeli submarine crew.  The article on Ynet is succinct and better written than my feeble attempt.  It is definitely worth reading.

I agree that the special arrangement between the USA and Israel is ridiculous.  However, President Obama had Rahm Emmanuel, a dual citizen, as his chief of staff, before Emmanuel resigned.   That would be the one who's father, commenting on his son's honor at being chosen as Chief of Staff, rudely replied, "What is he, an Arab that should sweep floors?'(sic)
In fact there are many dual citizens in the United States Congress.

Under the Israeli Knesset rules, no dual citizens can be elected to be in government, you must pledge your loyalty to Israel.  I think that is sensible.  What is not sensible is that the United States has allowed our government to become polluted with people with double loyalties.  In my humble opinion it seems that the dual US/Is dual citizens always choose Israel first....though I would be called anti-Semitic for saying so.

The Royal Scam by Steely Dan:

  • inspired by an idea originated by Denny and Skunk(band members). They said that Lincoln Administration and Emancipation Proclamation were part of a "royal scam".  The north was as tyrannical as theBritish Monarchy, against whom the War for Independence had been fought. Denny and Skunk equated the Confederacy as a rebellion against this royal scam.  Paraphrased from UTube's commenter:
  • That's Neil Sedaka laying down on the bench (really)

Help the Bedouins of the Negev

I am writing to encourage you to urge the Israeli government to stop the persecution of Negev Bedouin Arabs in Israel.

The Prawer-Amidror Plan, a recent proposition adopted by the Israeli government, will force 45,000 Bedouins from their homes.

This is all part of a larger plan, fueled by racism, that aims to concentrate Negev Bedouin Arabs into towns and take away their land. The Bedouin Arab culture mandates that they live in open rural land, not in densely populated cites.

Please help send a strong message to the Israeli government. No one should be forced from their lifestyle because of their race or ethnicity. 

Please sign this petition and join me in helping Bedouin Arabs maintain their autonomy.         

I got this email from care2causes and hope that all that read this will sign the petition and involve any activist networks you are involved with.

For over sixty years the Israeli Jews have been hounding the indigenous Palestinians.  The Israeli Jews have attempted to rewrite the history of Palestine with such blatant lies it is almost impossible to untangle their evil web of falsehoods, fabrications and lies of omission.  

I will just examine one or two out and out lies.  In 1948  Israel fought what it calls the war for independence against Palestine's neighboring armies.  Palestine itself had no armed forces whatsoever.

The Syrian and Egyptian armies were in no way as well equipped or trained for a modern war.   Israel was backed by the major European countries and the USA.  There was no way that they were in danger.  This is when the Nakba commenced.  Deliberate ethnic cleansing which pushed the indigenous Palestinians into Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Kuwait, etc.

The Israeli Jews said Palestine was a land without people "for a people without a land."  The part in quotes is true but Palestine has been inhabited for at least 4,500 years. 
Until the advent of zionism Muslim, Christian and Jew cohabitated peacefully in Palestine.   Now the Israeli Jews have control and/or ownership of 85% of Palestine and they keep usurping ever more.

Why would people that live in a desert ecosystem systematically blow up wells, dismantle irrigation systems, ruin family cisterns designed to catch rain water and usurp all potable water to sell back to the Palestinians?
These are a people of self proclaimed ethics and respect for the law.

These are people who have destroyed a single village over 30 times in something like the last 14 months.  These are a people who have decided to push the Bedouins into an area that until recently was a garbage dump.  These are the people who own the USA Senate and Congress and President.  These are the people who give USA nothing but want billions of our tax dollars to continue their occupation and creeping genocide of Palestinians.

Please sign the petition.
