The best form of flattery is imitation they say. The anti-West, Jew-obsessed, Israel hating, freedom abusing agenda is never more advertised better than this guys assertion ” Israel is more dangerous than Iran.”  http://english.alarabiya.net/views/2012/04/30/211193.html

He sets up the argument by saying:

On my behalf and the behalf of some friends, I say that all of Israel is an illegal settlement on Palestinian land. Israel will never be deemed legitimate by any authority in the world. To be sure, the only side that can grant it this legitimacy is the Palestinians, only after their independent state is established alongside Israel

then lovingly uses the recent attack on danish activist as final proof of israels nazism.

Haaretz itself said that Lt. Col Shalom Eisner, who assaulted a Danish peace activist named Andreas Las when he hit him with his rifle butt in the face, represents the image of the Israeli society of today. Despite this, there are those amongst us who do not want to see this image.

He concludes in all too convenient style having a massive blindspot for Iranian breaches of human rights, hangings, stonings, forced confessions, antisemitic propoganda, god well do we begin.

I do not exonerate the Iranian regime at all from the occupation of three islands that belong to the UAE, and I support the liberation of these islands by all possible means – bar military ones so that Muslims do not fight among themselves. I also accuse the regime in Tehran of promoting Persian nationalism, even when it was us who had guided them to Islam.

But Iran is nothing compared to Israel and its crimes. Recently, Israel’s fascist government banned an Israeli book, even though it was approved for the school curriculum by the Ministry of Education, because it recounts how the Palestinians were displaced from their lands in 1948, and how lands were confiscated to build settlements in the seventies. Today, the criminal government of Israel is preventing the Palestinians from accessing their farm lands in the West Bank, according to Human Rights Watch. Settlement is expanding every day, homes are being seized in Jerusalem, and all is left for us is to one day hear that Al-Aqsa has fallen in their hands, while we are obsessing with a nonexistent threat from Iran, and perhaps tomorrow from Bhutan.

utter  crap one-dimensional article. he’s one stupid c*nt and simply doesn’t deserve a voice.

The Beeb ran a story highlighting the increase of private security firms in Lebanon.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/15334164

The report claims the country’s instability caused since the 2005 assassinations, bombings & mass protests has led to MP’s, Businessman, celebrities paying for their services. Another factor also mentioned is the general perception that Syria have pulled all their troops from the country leaving vulnerable or exposed. This obviously is a lazy conclusion you only have to read Lebanon’s Daily Star to find Syria has not quite left this particular arena, certainly their intelligence arm is still operating at high levels. But  is the BBC somehow suggesting life was perhaps better off with the Syrians there? and now with them go anarchy reins.. oh dear oh dear. Can somebody  re-train these monkeys who report for them ?

I m pretty sure it’s all a fad and fashion necessity for the élite of Beirut. I’ve spent enough time with them over here in London  and Europe to realize the Lebanese are very materialistic in the extreme and hate to miss out on something, but hey how should I know when the Beeb refuses to believe the obvious and paint a picture of calm Lebanon when the Syrians are in control.

If nothing else, at least the Lebanese will have a little hint of what Israelis and Jews have to suffer daily when going about their business., as security is indeed paramount. t

Jewish Activist’s Harrowing Yom Kippur and Escape from Tripoli

 

Please watch.

Marwan Muasher, former foreign minister and deputy president of Jordan, and  vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace writes in NYT

The West wants to pretend that Islamist parties don’t really exist. This won’t work. Political Islam will not go away because the West ignores it; Islamist parties will, however, become more moderate if they are included in government.

ANSWER

For more on Iran’s  propagandist attempt look here http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=fa&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=www.wsfall.com&act=url

It’s supposedly a solidarity website by the Basijs volunteer group or Party but seems more the work of the Iranian State funded which obviously it is. Just exactly what the useful idiots on the occupiers movement feel about attracted every far right and far left is anyone’s guess.

 

Trying to decipher and make sense of this ahem, intellectual and apparent darling of #occupywallstreet Mr Slavoj Zizek  talk is very much  like watching Gaddifi on stage at the Arab League when on one-hand you think, blimey IS HE actually praising the Jews by mentioning how many wars Israel has won and how we as Arabs, never unifying anything like the Jews??

So The same vibe resonates when listening to him he makes startling simplifications ( http://english.aljazeera.net/programmes/talktojazeera/2011/10/2011102813360731764.htmlfrom about 14minutes in) saying how much  he’s frightened for American Jews and world Jewry because their Israeli Jewish tribal leaders have paradoxical made a pact with the devil with the likes of Glen Beck and the Christian Zionists and its bad. As they hold two opposing ideas about the Jewish race,  one is purely anti-Semitic and the other admiration for the power over the Arab-Muslims by the Israelis.Slavoj completes his cycle of simplistic thought by equating  Norway’s recent massacre by  Anders Behring Breivik as an agent of stealth Zionism, and hereby finding new ways to de-legitimize the Israeli State. You can find similar attitudes all over the web: http://mwcnews.net/focus/politics/12328-massacre-in-norway.html

This sort of equation is the next step to Gilad Atzmon’s usual a-z of Zionist biblical Masscre school for dummies like this clip shows:

Sadly such assertions are a sly way to demonize and create a climate of intolerance towards Israel. For Slavoj its a simple black and white case Israel are the new Nazis committing evils unlike other evils in the world,  stealing the conscience and morality from good Jews around the world.  Slavoj fails to mention any background to Israels plight, no attempt to understand her fears and losses, but rather intellectualize in front of an Al Jazeera English audience everything that is wrong about Israel. I would love to ask  Saljoy if he ever been to Israel, rather than trying to embed himself with Jewish intellectuals in NYC… More on this delusional creep later.

For further proof a society deceiving the world about their inhumane conditions when if fact its far from it, according to YNET, “Gaza stores, markets offer latest trend – plaid shirt Gilad Shalit wore during handover to Israel – for NIS 60″http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4137569,00.html

This proves two things, firstly if Israel was the most important thing in each of the Gazan population heart and mind, and so oppressed by the Israeli blockade / apartheid policies, then how does the recent shift in the ‘Gilad Shirt’ sales explain this? Surely a shirt so representative of the Israeli soldier would be out of bounds for the Gazans? They even started a facebook group about his shirt.You would not find Jewish victims of Holocaust buying clothes worn or associated with from the Nazi party I think? For a real response to a hated regime and all the symbols which goes with it , is masterly featured in a Tunisian viral where Ben Ali’s photo is draped on the side of a building only to anger the public who act and tear it down, to reveal a message they should vote in order not to allow this to happen again.

This response is indicative of a people really struggling and ‘honestly’ fighting the occupation of hearts and minds. Not like the Gazan’s who when not thinking about the evils of Israel, can think about such things as “oh I would like Gilad’s shirt”

This leaves me to the second most obvious question, the shirt apparent costs $16 YNET:

Merchants in the Strip are now offering “The Shalit shirt” in a wide range of colors, for NIS 60 ($16.5). The demand, it seems, is very high.

מימין: שליט בראיון לטלוויזיה המצרית. משמאל: החולצות למכירה (צילום: EPA)

Right: Shalit interviewed by Egyptian TV. Left: Shirts on sale in Gaza

 Evidence of the new fashion trend can be found on Facebook where at least 10 pages have been created in the last few days devoted to “Gilad Shalit’s shirt.” Thousands of web surfers have become fans.

Unless the whole of Gaza is having a right dose of the Stockholm syndrome , albeit in reverse, political commentators, journalists, activists, should all contemplate this compelling piece of evidence which again shows why we are right in our assertions there’s  no starvation, malnutrition, torturous conditions of Gazan’s and more principally Israel is only really used to further political goals when in fact the day-to-day reality is much different. The plight and the anger of Gaza like the Palestinian cause in general  is just a construct of the West through newspapers to politicians to activists. The sooner we have a grown up discussion that incorporates these realities expressed by people like myself on behalf of the Israel-Jewish narrative the sooner we can come to compromise.

just found this clip.. Its a fascinating Michael Moore to camera schtick appealing to the Syrian government to give up. This was shot back in May. Needless to say he begins by apologizing for the Bush Administration and the West involvement meddling in the Middle East,  when he finally gets down asking Assad to stop the killing, one still has the impression he doesn’t quite go far enough. The fact the man sees himself as someone of importance is grating enough but for him to seriously think his words in appealing for Assad  to go in the same manner as Botha’s South African is again,  – to avoid the cliche –  making more moral equivalence, a symptom of the Left.

Let there be no doubt, Assad is brutally murdering people in full view of the world and the UN, exactly where are the likes of Mssrs Moore and others protesting on the streets and world condemnation. Where is Chomsky?

For those keeping scores Turkey has invaded Northern Iraq and continues to bomb parts of Kurdish controlled areas..and guess what, hardly nothing from the media and certainly no street protests or UN resolutions passed as per-usual.

To get a better overall view on Turkish ambitions there’s a telling interview with Professor İbrahim Kaboğlu, who visited Tunisia three times after the Jasmine Revolution. He describes the scene just before PM Erdogan’s visit to Tunisia … http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/n.php?n=contradictory-image-of-turkey-is-confusing-the-arab-world-2011-10-21

“..the Turkish demand to send posters of the prime minister ahead of the visit in order for them to be hung on the street – all of this seems to have created resentment. And the fact that it was within the framework of his tour of the Middle East, it led to questions as to whether Ottomanism was being revived and whether Turkey had some imperial inclinations about spreading its influence to the region in an effort to dominate it.”

As the ArabSpring really unravels  and we now focus exclusively on Syria which throws into question Iran and its position as lead sponsor of terror and spoiler of stability, Turkish jockeying to be Arab’s answer to a perfect society will come into the spotlight. The views of the Professor, talking to a Turkish Newspaper, highlighting the growing threat of ‘ottomanism’ is a relief for those of us who feel nervous of  a confident Turkey and its ability to criticized itself. What he has mentioned if you read the piece is the bullish nature of Erdogan administration and the confusion of its ambition to an Arab world still sore from revolutions.

Qaddafi famously spoke about America allowing the people to hang Saddam. Here’s Qaddifi in perhaps his most truthful speech ever made. fascinating theatre all for the wrong reasons. look how they all smurk when he mentions “you could be next’
