Canada’s Greens stand up to pro-Israel bullies
- 0

The Israel lobby has suffered an epic fail in Canada. An attempt at persuading the country’s Green Party to drop its support for the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement galvanized many activists. The result was that Canada’s Greens have emphatically demanded that Palestinian rights be respected.
In August, the Green Party’s members voted to back BDS measures targeting those sectors of the Israeli economy which profit from the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. As is par for the course, Israeli nationalist groups labeled the resolution “anti-Semitic.”

Describing herself as “broken-hearted,” the Greens’ leader Elizabeth May threatened to resign if the party didn’t revisit the issue.

May, then, announced that a special general membership meeting would be held at the start of December to discuss its stance on Palestine.

In September, she fired three members of her shadow cabinet for defending the party’s recently passed policy from attacks by the head of the British Columbia Greens.
But May overplayed her hand.

Caught in the Ottawa and corporate media bubble, she failed to grasp the depth of support for the Palestinian cause both within and outside her party. She also underestimated Palestine solidarity groups’ organizational capacities.

Overwhelming

In the lead-up to last weekend’s special general meeting, Dimitri Lascaris, one of the three fired by May, spoke in defense of BDS at town hall meetings across Canada.
Support for the Palestine policy was overwhelming during these events.

Despite media claims to the contrary – “Green Party losing members, riding associations as BDS controversy highlights infighting,” according to one National Post headline – the party has more to gain by aligning with the growing number of Canadians critical of the federal government’s support for Israeli violence and colonialism.
Facing the prospect of a humiliating defeat at the special meeting, May and other party leaders backed an alternative resolution, which was approved at last weekend’s meeting.

An explanatory note issued by the Greens claims that the party “explicitly rejects” calls for boycotting the State of Israel. The note indicates that the Greens could not support the BDS movement as its goals do not include “supporting the right of the State of Israel to exist.”

Nonetheless, the new resolution supports the targeted use of boycotts, divestment and sanctions as tactics in response to violence and oppression.

It also backs the three main demands made by the BDS movement: an end to Israel’s colonization of Palestinian lands; full equality between Israeli Jews and Palestinian citizens of Israel; and guaranteeing the right to return of Palestinian refugees.

The resolution calls, too, for an end to the siege of Gaza and insists that Canada divests from companies that benefit from Israel’s activities in the occupied West Bank. It also urges the renegotiation of the free trade agreement between Canada and Israel so that goods produced within Israel’s settlements in the West Bank are “explicitly” excluded. The resolution also promotes the “indefinite suspension” of all military cooperation and trade in weapons and surveillance equipment.

The new resolution was swiftly denounced by Canada’s pro-Israel lobby. The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs in Toronto claimed that the Greens had been “coopted by extreme activists.”

Pressure on NDP

The Green vote puts pressure on the historically left-leaning New Democratic Party (NDP) to take a similar position.

Some political activists associated with the NDP are sympathetic to the Palestine solidarity movement.
Sid Ryan, former head of the Ontario Federation of Labour, signed a recent appeal addressed to members of the Canadian Greens. Also backed by the authors Yann Martel and Rawi Hage and musicians Richard Reed Parry, from the group Arcade Fire, and Bruce Cockburn, the letter urges Greens not to “weaken or reverse the vote to support Palestinian rights” taken in August.

Ryan is being spoken of as a possible candidate for NDP leader. A website urging him to enter the contest for that position celebrates his advocacy for Palestinian rights, including his support for the BDS movement.
No matter who wins the campaign to become NDP leader in October it’s hard to imagine they will be worse than outgoing leader Tom Mulcair, who has described himself as an ally to Israel “in all circumstances.”
For the pro-Israel groups, the Green vote will sting. Rather than forcing party members to cower, their attacks focused attention on the Palestinian struggle for equality and justice.

Only he to whom the land doesn’t belong is capable of burning it
- 0


Recently Israel was ablaze. The government was quick to declare the fires ‘arson’ set by Palestinians to destroy the land ….
But the reality is ….
“Only he to whom the land doesn’t belong is capable of burning it”.

by Evelyn Hecht-Galinski VIA Desert Peace
English translation by Milena Rampoldi, , edited by William Hanna  
With regards to the recent fires in the “Jewish State” 
we can only agree with Naftali Bennett who tweeted: 
“Only he to whom the land doesn’t belong is capable 
of burning it”. He is the right-wing Minister of 
Education and the President of the Party “Jewish 
Home” and the “Settlers‘ King” who made of the 
racist settlers‘ party a powerful coalition partner 
within the Netanyahu regime. And it is him who 
dreams of  Eretz Israel, the Great Israel, from the 
Mediterranean to Jordan, and in addition wants to 
annex big parts of the illegally occupied West Bank.  
Who does the land belong to? Certainly not to the 
ethnic cleansing Jewish occupiers who have displaced 
the indigenous Palestinian people. As a consequence 
of the fires, Bennett and his right-wing colleague, 
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman called for an 
expansion of Jewish settlements on occupied land and 
promptly authorized the building of 500 new 
settlement units! Also in this instance, the coward 
members of the German Government have remained 
silent because for them the existence of “a Jewish state” 
takes an important priority over human rights and 
international law.
This raises the question of “why is the Jewish state 
burning?” The majority of the hundreds of millions of 
trees planted since the Nakba by the Jewish National 
Fund, are conifers and particularly pines. The trees 
were planted for the benefit of the Jewish European 
immigrant ethnic cleansers so as to enable them to 
feel at home in a land for which they had no love, but 
simply wanted to possess.
Since Biblical times, trees planted in Palestine were 
suited for the dry land – such as olive trees – which 
were vital for the livelihood of Palestinian farmers and 
their families. Other trees included carob, mulberry, 
and low oaks which were all ecologically suitable 
vegetation. Such trees were and are still being 
systematically destroyed by the Zionist intruders to 
deprive the Palestinians of their livelihood.
This raises a further question of whether the current 
and previous fires – such as the 2010 Mount Carmel 
forest fire – were natural or cases of deliberate arson. 
The use of European monoculture to transform the 
“Jewish State” into a “Small Switzerland” is, however, 
doomed to failure. From the beginning, the Zionist 
intruders spoke about “Arabs” condescendingly with 
the Palestinians and their land being referred to as 
 “uncultured” and “uncultivated” as compared to the 
blossoming “Jewish” landscapes which alone were 
worthy of praise.
Consequently the effectiveness of this hasbara 
(propaganda) has deceived the whole world into 
overlooking the ethnic cleansing of Palestine while 
accepting Israel’s “green-wash” disinformation 
including that relating to the drainage of important 
lakes and water sources of the indigenous Palestinian 
inhabitants. The scarcity of water for Palestinians has 
been further exacerbated by decades of unrestricted 
theft by Israel of Palestinian water that is then used to 
supply the illegal settlements. The extensive damage 
caused by such water theft in the illegally occupied 
West Bank and the barbarically blockaded Gaza Strip is 
indescribable! So far,  the endless decades-long ethnic 
cleansing of Palestine has been tolerated by the 
hypocritical international community in general, and by 
the West and Germany in particular.
From the beginning, Zionism’s aim has been to erase 
the memory of the Nakba by rewriting history in favour 
of Israel and Judaising the map of Palestine. Such 
blatant “Nakba denial” must be also criminalized in line 
“Holocaust denial.” It is not without reason that the 
powerful Israel lobby repeatedly endeavours to prevent 
exhibitions that present the truth about the “Nakba” 
and the brutal forced expulsions that preceded and 
followed the Israeli Declaration of Independence.
Since its foundation in 1948, with its Zionist exclusive 
right to the stolen land, the “Jewish State” has not only 
systematically violated human rights and international 
law, but also all accepted ecological standards. The 
destruction of Palestinian fields and olive groves; the 
systematic poisoning of fields of Palestinian farmers; 
and the ethnic cleansing by the “Jewish State,” Jewish 
settlers, the Jewish National Fund JNF/KKL under the 
guise of green-washing and international sponsorship 
that only served the colonialism of an Apartheid Jewish 
State. In this regard, Germany stands guilty of always 
donating more woods in the name of German Federal 
Regions or with the name of politicians (Mißfelder!) for 
the JNF and Israel. While Palestinians are displaced and 
their trees destroyed, German politicians spectacularly 
plant trees in the “Jewish State” like German Foreign 
Minister Steinmeier!
It is frightening that to this day the false Zionist sound 
bite of “a land without people, for a people without 
land” continues to justify land expropriations despite 
international human rights laws prohibiting such 
practices. A particularly bad example in this context is 
the so called “Canada Park” grassed for millions of 
Dollars by the Himnuta Organisation, a 99% subsidiary 
company of JNF/KKL on the ruins of Palestinian 
villages, with secret financial sources and expenses. (1)
For these “green-washers” the future US-President 
Donald Trump comes just at the right time, having 
already supported Israel’s right to have Jerusalem as 
its capital! Under the guise of environmental 
protection — at the expense of the Palestinian people, 
and by means of the land dispossession supported by 
German-Israeli projects in forestry and irrigation — 
this will in time become possible through continual 
illegal occupation and by dispossession of the land and 
water resources of a people “thirsty for justice”.
Without the displacement of Palestinians there would 
be no “Jewish State.” It was the infamous Josef Weitz, 
President of the Jewish National Fund, and one of the 
most fanatic advocates of “transferring” the 
Palestinians who in 1940 noted in his diary that  “the 
transfer does not just pursue the aim to reduce the 
Arab population, but it also serves for the second 
objective which is not unimportant and consists of 
emptying the land cultivated by Arabs to make it free 
for Jewish settlement. The only solution is to transfer 
the Arabs from here to the neighbouring countries. We 
have not to omit neither one village nor one tribe.” All 
this and much more is cited by Ilan Pappe in his 
commendable book The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine.
To this day, this “transfer” concept has been is the 
policy of both politicians in the “Jewish State” and of 
Jewish Saloon-Zionists in diaspora. That policy has 
included as its first priority the denial to Palestinian 
refugees their legitimate right of return to their 
homeland so as to conquer all of Palestine – in violation 
of international law – for a strictly “Jewish start.”
However, as long as the duplicitous Western 
“community of values” is complicit in this injustice, and 
as long as the blazing flames of the illegal occupation 
are not extinguished, the “Jewish State” will burn.
“Only he to whom the land doesn’t belong is capable 
of burning it” – what a truth!
From the River to the Sea Palestine will be free!

Kerry tells Israeli right it is deliberately sabotaging peace process

Washington's top diplomat warns Israeli settlement building undermining hope of two states living side-by-side


US Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday accused right-wing Israelis of deliberately thwarting efforts to broker a peace deal with the Palestinians.
In unusually stark terms, Washington's top diplomat warned that Israeli settlement building was undermining any hope of an agreement to allow two states to live side-by-side.
At the Saban Forum, an annual gathering of senior Israeli and US policymakers, Kerry said some members of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government had made "profoundly disturbing" statements.
"And more than 50 percent of the ministers in the current government have publicly stated they are opposed to a Palestinian state and that there will be no Palestinian state," he said.
Earlier in the day, Netanyahu had addressed the forum via video link, arguing that Israeli settlement building was not an obstacle to peace.
Israel was ready for talks with no preconditions, he said, urging Arab governments to recognise the state of Israel.
However, Kerry dismissed the idea that more Arab states would strike peace deals with Israel without any moves towards an agreement with the Palestinians.
"There will be no advance and separate peace with the Arab world without the Palestinian process and Palestinian peace," he said. "Everybody needs to understand that. That is a hard reality."
In the US government's view, Israel's accelerated building on Palestinian-owned land is not only an obstacle to peace but deliberately so, Kerry added.
"I'm not here to tell you that the settlements are the reason for the conflict, no, they're not," Kerry said.
"But I also cannot accept the notion that they don't affect the peace process, that they aren't a barrier to the capacity to have peace," he argued. 
"And I'll tell you why I know that: because the left in Israel is telling everybody they are a barrier to peace and the right that supports it openly supports it because they don't want peace."
US President Barack Obama's administration, which comes to an end next month with no prospect of a revived peace process, has been frustrated by the attitude of Netanyahu's government.
Still, Kerry insisted Israel has no greater friend than Washington.
Since he arrived at the State Department in February 2013, he has spoken to Netanyahu on 375 formally recorded occasions for more than 130 hours of discussions, he said.
Washington has opposed all attempts to pressure Israel through votes on United Nations bodies, he added, and has just signed a 10-year $38bn military support deal, the biggest in US history.

Zionism; Humanity’s Mortal Enemy
- 0

by Dr. Elias Akleh

Zionism is a brutal ethniccleansing racist colonial ideology developed in 1896 by Theodore Herzl; an Austrian Jew. Its main goal is the establishment of the Greater Israel Project in the heart of the Arab World, extending from the Nile River in Egypt to the Euphrates River in Iraq, as a Jewish-only homeland for what is termed the “Jewish People”.
The majority of world Jewry had adopted this ideology, and with the financial and military help of coerced pro-Zionist Western heads of states; mainly Britain and USA, they were able to accomplish the first phase of this colonial project by establishing the state of Israel on the occupied Palestinian land after the genocide and ethnic-cleansing of a majority of Palestinian Arabs. The second phase; namely the destruction of the neighboring Arab countries; Lebanon, Iraq, Syria and Yemen, and the brutal forceful eviction of inhabitants in the form of the massive refugee crisis, is now in progress.
Zionism, like bolshevism, communism, capitalism, liberalism and all similar ideologies, is a tool created by the Secret World Government; the Hidden Hand, to recruit and manipulate mainly Jews and to pressure Western Christian World to wage long term wars in the Middle Eastern region against the Moslem World in order to generate war financial revenue in their pockets and to gain even more control over the regional rich natural resources such as oil and gas. Even though Zionism has been successful, so far, in gathering the Jews in the colonial state of Israel and in spreading havoc in the Arab World, yet Zionism will prove to be the cause of their ultimate doom in the future if they keep pushing for the end goal of the Zionist ideology; the establishment of Grater Israel Project.


Zionism was invented as a homeless nationalist ideology without a nation. It did not have an identified homeland with a nation. Its main goal is to create an artificial nation out of religious followers, who are alien to each other in language, culture, nationality and even race. This artificial nation is to be militarized and manipulated to control the rich natural resources of the Middle East. Judaism and Jews were selected to be this colonial tool due to the Judaic religious connection to the land.
Zionist ideology was born out of Judaism; a supremacist, racist, manipulative, genocidal religion with a racist discriminative warmongering blood thirsty god (Satan), who demands bloodshed, child sacrifice, total destruction and enslavement of all goyims (non-Jews), and the hording of all gold and silver. Those, who apologetically attempt to separate the two, have not read or understood the Judaic teachings and historical events narrated in the Old Testament and in other Judaic texts.
To recruit reluctant Jews into Zionism anti-Jewish (anti-Semitic) sentiment needed to be intensified to alienate Jews from their countries of birth. Since its inception it was understood that anti-Jewishness and Zionism are inseparable partners. Despite the existence of Jewish ghettos, encouraged by supremacist Jewish Rabbis to keep Jews separated from and un-assimilated within the goyims, many Jews found it more prosperous for them to get out of the ghettos and to be assimilated within the country they live in. Such assimilation had, before WWII, dramatically reduced anti-Jewish sentiments in many countries such as Western European countries including Germany, the Americas, North African Islamic countries and the Arab Middle Eastern countries. Jews, being citizens of the country of their birth, lived relatively in peace and in harmony with the other citizens of the same country. They were not interested in moving to a new country where they would have to die in colonial wars against its inhabitants. Thus Zionist agents had fomented and promoted anti-Semitic attacks against Jews as a means to compel them to “escape” persecution and immigrate to Palestine. Without anti-Semitism pushing Jews to immigrate to Palestine, Zionist project would certainly fail.  Zionist founder Theodor Herzl said:

“It is essential that the suffering of Jews … becomes worse … This will assist in realization of our plans … I have an excellent idea, I shall induce anti-Semites to liquidate Jewish wealth. The anti-Semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews. The anti-Semites shall be our best friends.”

This partnership was recognized by Jewish writers and historians. Benny Morris; the Israeli historian, described in his book “Righteous Victims” how Herzl recognized that anti-Semitism would be harnessed to his own Zionist purposes. Israel Shahak; an Israeli professor in the Hebrew University, describes in his book “Jewish History, Jewish Religion” the close relationship that have always existed between Zionist and anti-Semites exposing the fact that Zionists use the anti-Semites for their own colonial purposes. University faculty professor Allan C. Brownfeld states in his essay “Zionism and Anti-Semitism: A Strange Alliance Through History” the long historical alliance from the end of the 19th century until today between Zionism and anti-Semites.
The danger of Zionism against Jews did not escape Jewish politicians nor Jewish Rabbis. Immediately after Balfour Declaration in 1917 a Jewish Minister in the British Government; Lord Edwin Montagu submitted amemorandum to the British Cabinet as a response to Balfour Declaration and a harsh criticism of Zionism predicting an increase in anti-Jewish (anti-Semitic) sentiments as a result. He described Zionism as “a mischievous political creed, untenable by any patriotic citizen of the United Kingdom.” He also prescribed Zionist organization as “illegal and against the national interest … largely run by men of enemy descent or birth, and by this means have dealt a severe blow to the liberties, position and opportunities of service to their Jewish fellow-countrymen.” Acknowledging the Judaic belief that a Divine leadership is required to form a Jewish nation, he wondered sarcastically “I have never heard it suggested … that either Mr. Balfour or Lord Rothschild would prove to be the Messiah.”
Lord Montagu asserted that there is no such thing as a Jewish nation. A Jewish Englishman is not of the same nation as a Jewish French, Jewish Russian, Jewish Arab or any Jewish citizen of any other country, similar to the fact that a Christian Englishman not of the same nation as a Christian French, Christian Russian, Christian Arab or any Christian citizen of any other country.
He also predicted that declaring Palestine as a Jewish national homeland will increase anti-Jewish (anti-Semitic) sentiment, and “every country will immediately desire to get rid of its Jewish citizens … because we[Jews] have obtained a far greater share of this country’s [and other country’s] goods and opportunities than we are numerically entitled to … we compete unfairly.” Jews will be stripped of their original nationality and become foreign Jews. Having Jews, from different countries with different languages and different cultures, transferred into Palestine would create a Tower of Babel. Palestine will become the world’s largest Jewish Ghetto.
Furthermore Montagu denied that Palestine of 1917 is associated with Jews or is a fit place for them to live in. Although Palestine had played a large part in Jewish history, it also had played a larger part in Christian history, and played even the largest part in Islamic history. A religious test of citizenship is a “bigoted and narrow view of one particular epoch of the history of Palestine” he stated.
Even without stating it specifically in words Montagu predicted the demographic issue; the Palestinian demographic bomb or Israel’s “Palestinian question” similar to Nazi’s “Jewish question”. He indicated that there are (at his time) three times as many Jews in the world as could possibly fit into Palestine even if you drove out (ethnically cleanse) all the Palestinians living there at the time. He questioned if only one third could be transferred into Palestine, then what will happen to the rest of Jews? Who would be the lucky one third? Does this mean that Christian and Moslem Palestinians would make way for all these Jews giving them their land and means of living thus making themselves foreigners in their own country?
Montagu was not aware of the whole Greater Israel Project, and thus could not foresee Zionist expansionist plans and the resulting devastating wars that are happening now in the region.
Many Jewish Rabbis of the time recognized Zionism as the worst enemy of the Jews, opposed it and urged their young followers not to adopt it. In 1922 when a Jewish Agudath Israel organization was spreading Zionist ideology and calling for the colonization of Palestine among European young Jews especially in Poland, Hungarian Orthodox Rabbis, perceiving the threat, published a resolution opposing Zionism and urging their followers not to adopt Zionist colonial plans in Palestine. The resolutionwas signed by 196 Rabbis from all over the world. Unfortunately, although many Orthodox Jewish organizations initially opposed Zionism, the majority of them turned around due to infiltration, political pressure and financial bribery, and adopted Zionism and supported the state of Israel.
Eventually, Zionists succeeded in establishing the state of Israel. Yet after few decades of constant wars against Arab countries Israel’s Jewish families had lost their initial victorious euphoria and got exhausted and tired of sending their children to war. Immigration to Israel subsided, and young Israelis started abandoning military draft and leaving the country ostensibly seeking further education. The Secret World Government needed to do something drastic to perpetuate its war in the Middle East. Thus the false flag terrorist attack of 911 and other false flag terrorist attacks in Europe were perpetrated and Islamophobia was created in order to recruit the Western Christian world into wars for Israel against Arab/Moslem World. Moreover regime change and terrorism within the Arab World have also been created through what is falsely called Arab Spring; a movement created by Zionized American Administration.  
While American and NATO military forces are fighting Israel’s wars in the Middle East, Israeli government, having more free time, continues violating the many UN Resolutions perpetrating war and humanitarian crimes against the Palestinians, demolishing Palestinian homes and at times complete villages, turning the whole Gaza Strip into a starving concentration prison camp and a military testing ground for Israel’s new weapons, and expanding more colonies (settlements) on usurped Palestinian land among many other numerous crimes. It also continues shipping arms to terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Nusra to continue their destruction of Syria and Iraq.
Yet these Israeli crimes have not gone unnoticed as in the past. Thanks to the internet Israel’s crimes against Palestinians and Arabs, its false flag terrorist attacks against the USA and European countries, its bribery of political officials, and its nuclear Sampson Option threating world peace and blackmailing the Western World to do Israel’s biddings are being exposed to the whole world. According to a 2003 European commission opinion poll 60% of Europeans within 15 countries see Israel, not Iran not North Korea and not USA, as the greatest threat to world peace. Such opinion accompanied with solidarity with the Palestinian cause are on the rise as we witness with the wide spreading of the BDS (Boycott, Divest & Sanction Israel) movement. Zionist secret weapon; anti-Jewishness (anti-Semitism), is on the rise but has been gradually turned around to become anti-Israel instead.
It is also noticeable that some anti-Israeli government sentiment is on the rise among American Jews themselves. Jewish organizations such as Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), Tikkun Olam, Satmar (Jews Not Zionists), Jews Against Racist Zionism, and Neturei Karta International (NKI) are raising their protesting voices against the inhumane policies of the Israeli government.
Yet, one must not be disillusioned by these Jewish organizations. Although they seem to be liberal and humanist, yet supremacist Judaic theology, or at least elements of it, is still ingrained in their Jewish psyche and identity. The fact that they are still calling for the implementation of the already dead and impractical two-state-solution asserting their support for an Israeli state for Jews, whose existence in itself and in any form negates a Palestinian state over the whole Palestine and deny Palestinians’ right of return to their own homes and land.
Abolishing Zionism and returning Palestine to its original owners would not guarantee global peace because the real threat resides in the core of the Judaic teachings that call for the supremacy of the Jews as god’s chosen people and its hatred and enmity to all goyim.
