Britain will not suspend PA aid over new UN bid

Published today (updated) 01/09/2012 10:39

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Britain will not suspend financial aid to the
Palestinian Authority if the latter submits a new application to the UN
seeking recognition of Palestine as a non-member state of the General
Assembly, a British official confirmed Friday.

The PA plans to ask the UN General Assembly to upgrade Palestine's
status to a non-member observer state in the fall. A previous bid for
full UN membership stalled at the Security Council last year.

Speaking to Ma'an on Friday, UK deputy-consul general in Jerusalem Ben
Saoul highlighted that the British government would continue to support
the PA financially until 2015 to help build a Palestinian state and
support economic development.

Britain's financial aid to the Palestinians is about $160 million per
year, said Saoul. A portion of this aid goes directly to the PA's
treasury, and the rest goes through UNRWA and non-governmental
organizations.

The PA has been suffering from a crippling financial crisis and civil
servants' monthly salaries were delayed several times.

The deputy consul-general said he met Friday in Jerusalem with
representatives of European donor organizations to discuss the financial
crisis. Ending this crisis, he said, is a top priority for Britain and
for the European Union.

Asked whether his country would vote for or against the new Palestinian
UN bid, Saoul did not give a clear answer. "We don't want to jump to
conclusions," he said.

The diplomat also refused to give a direct response to Israeli foreign
minister Avigdor Liberman's remarks describing President Mahmoud Abbas
as an obstacle to the peace process.

"I will not address Liberman's comments directly because they were
directed to the Palestinian people, and not to the British government.
However, in general, the legitimate representative of Palestine, in
Britain's view, is Mr Abbas, and we believe he is a man of peace."

Britain is interested in supporting the Palestinians who live in area
"C" which is under Israeli security control according to the terms of
Oslo agreement, said Saoul.

He highlighted that on Wednesday he visited the southern West Bank
village of Susiya south of Hebron along with a European delegation. They
checked on three families whose tents were demolished recently by
Israeli forces.

Strange ... Military Brass Vs Jewish Agenda

http://www.realjewnews.com/?p=750

By Brother Nathanael Kapner

TRUTH IS STRANGER than fiction, indeed, is the case of US Military Brass
now opposing Jewry's agenda to set ablaze the entire Middle East with
interminable wars.

But easily stated 'truth' can just as easily turn to fiction…with a very
unhappy ending.

In three very recent back-to-back statements, General Martin Dempsey,
the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has defied American Jewry's
clamour for bloodshed in the Middle East where only the Goys die young:

• August 30, 2012 - Dempsey Comes Out Against a No-Fly Zone in Syria.

• August 31, 2012 - Dempsey Comes Out Against Joining Israel's Pending
Attack On Iran.

• August 31, 2012 - Dempsey Comes Out Against An Enlarged Joint Military
Exercise With Israel.

The anti-Zionist position of the upper echelons of the US military gets
even stranger. And the timing appears to be very well planned.

In an interview with CNN on August 26, 2012, former Chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, Colin Powell, defied Jewry's push to fully arm
the 'rebels' in Syria by saying: "We're not entirely sure who the rebels
are, what they are, and what they represent."

Powell, like Dempsey, is also against a no-fly zone in Syria, mocking
the Jewish warmongers with his retort: "You don't just grab slogans and
run with it."

Potent statements coming from the lips of military brass like Powell's
and Dempsey's zinger: "I don't want to be complicit in an Israeli attack
on Iran" is sure to upset the Jewish neocons—like Cohen, Kagan, and
Zakheim in Romney's war cabinet—which Powell trashed in his CNN interview.

The Israelis are already taking pot shots at Dempsey by saying that his
statement "undermines Israel's push for war on Iran" and that his use of
the term "complicit" has "criminal connotations."

Why of course! Israel is a "criminal" state from start to finish. Just
ask countless Palestinians whose land has been stolen and its people
murdered.

BUT WHETHER OR NOT it will ignite the ire of Senator Joseph Lieberman,
the leader of the pack of blood-thirsty Jews—who recently (along with
homosexual arm-chair general, Lindsey Graham, and the senile
Jewish-shill, John McCain), demanded a Syrian no-fly zone "like in
Libya"—it will surely boil the blood of Amerika's wanna be commander in
chief, Bibi Netanyahu.

In February 2012, in response to General Dempsey styling an Israeli-led
attack on Iran as "foolish," Netanyahu lashed back by calling Dempsey,
"a servant of Iran."

Now, Netanyahu can get away with these kinds of attacks on people like
Obama—Jewry's Shwartza in the White House—or on the Jewish-shills on
Capitol Hill, if any of them should get out of line.

But to target US military brass with verbal assaults—especially coming
from Jews whose chemistry sets off an automatic aversion in the Gentile
blood of US military commanders—is to tread on volatile ground.

To put it bluntly, (for I grew up as a Jew), tough Gentile Generals
don't like taking orders from Jews.

But, let's wait and see.

Perhaps the military, evil as it is, and in spite of its war crimes in
Iraq and Afghanistan, will finally say to Lieberman and the rest of the
bloodthirsty Jews: "Shove it up your Zionist rear ends!"

Report: U.S. General Dempsey says he does not want to be 'complicit' in
Israeli attack on Iran

The Guardian reports that U.S. General Martin Dempsey said that an
Israeli attack on Iran would delay but not stop its nuclear program.

By Natasha Mozgovaya

and Reuters

Aug.30, 2012 | 10:08 PM

The White House said on Thursday that it was closely studying a UN
report that showed Iran has possibly expanded uranium enrichment
machines and increased stockpiles of nuclear material.

"We are closely studying the details of the report, but broadly speaking
it is not surprising that Iran is continuing to violate its
obligations," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters when
asked about the UN International Atomic Energy Agency's quarterly report
on Iran. "As the report illustrates, we are in a position to closely
observe Iran's program," he said.

The report showed Iran has doubled the number of uranium enrichment
machines it has in an underground bunker.

Carney said the U.S. has made it clear to Iran that they have a limited
window of time to stop its atomic work and diplomatic terms offered by
the Western world will not remain open "indefinitely."

"The president has made clear frequently that he is determined to
prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon," he said. "So long as the
Iranian regime refuses to comply with its international obligations, the
United States, with its allies, will continue to take actions to further
isolate and penalize Iran and the regime."

Meanwhile on Thursday, the Guardian reported that U.S. General Martin
Dempsey said that an Israeli attack on Iran would delay but not stop its
nuclear program.

"I don't want to be complicit if they (Israel) choose to do it," Dempsey
said.

Earlier Thursday, the IAEA released a new report saying Iran has doubled
the number of uranium enrichment machines it has in an underground bunker.

The UN International Atomic Energy Agency said in its quarterly report
on Iran that the number of centrifuges at Fordo, near the holy Shi'ite
Muslim city of Qom, about 130 km (80 miles) from Tehran, had more than
doubled to 2,140 from 1,064 in May. The new machines were not yet
operating, it said.

The report showed that Iran had produced nearly 190 kg (418 pounds) of
higher-grade enriched uranium since 2010, up from 145 kg in May.

Iran says it needs this material - which is much purer than fuel needed
for electricity generation - for a medical research reactor, but it also
takes it significantly closer to making potential bomb material.

The IAEA also expressed concerns about Parchin, a military site south of
the capital that it wants to inspect for evidence of past nuclear
weapons development. "Significant ground scraping and landscaping have
been undertaken over an extensive area at and around the location," it said.

Five buildings had been demolished and power lines, fences and paved
roads removed, the report said, "extensive activities" that would hamper
its investigation if granted access.

"The activities observed ... further strengthen the agency's assessment
that it is necessary to have access to the location at Parchin without
further delay", the IAEA said.

Iran says Parchin is a conventional military facility and has dismissed
the allegations about it as "ridiculous".

(4) Joseph Lieberman calls for US to intervene in Syria as it did in Libya

http://www.lieberman.senate.gov/index.cfm/news-events/news/2012/7/statement-by-senators-lieberman-mccain-and-graham-on-syria/

STATEMENT BY SENATORS LIEBERMAN, McCAIN, AND GRAHAM ON SYRIA

07.27.12

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senators Joe Lieberman (I-CT), John McCain (R-AZ),
and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) today released the following joint statement
regarding the situation in Syria:

"Last March, as Moammar Qaddafi's tanks were approaching the gates of
Benghazi, Libya's second largest city, the United States and our allies
intervened, averting a massacre and helping the Libyan people to win
their freedom and liberate their country.

"Today, armored columns are advancing on Aleppo, the second largest city
in Syria, with the clear intention of unleashing indiscriminate violence
against civilians. Helicopter gunships, heavy artillery, and fixed wing
aircraft are already pounding Aleppo and other Syrian cities. The State
Department spokesperson has expressed "concern that we will see a
massacre in Aleppo" – and for good reason. And yet, the United States is
failing to take any of the steps that are within our power to stop
Bashar al Assad's killing machine.

"It is not too late for the United States to make the difference in
Syria, as we did in Libya. We can and should be providing weapons,
intelligence, and training directly to the rebels – not sitting on the
sidelines and outsourcing this job to others. Even more urgently, as 62
foreign policy experts recently urged, the United States and our allies
should work with the Syrian opposition to establish safe havens in
liberated parts of Syria and do what is necessary to guarantee their
protection, including consideration of a no fly zone, given Assad's use
of helicopters and aircraft. In none of this, moreover, does the U.S.
need to act alone. Our allies in the region are ready and eager to work
together with us – indeed, some of them are already much more engaged in
this fight than we are – but American leadership is necessary. Right
now, it is woefully absent.

"Years from now, the Syrian people will remember that – in their hour of
desperation, when they looked to the world for help – the United States
stood idly by as brave Syrians struggled and died for their freedom in a
grossly unfair fight. If we continue on this path of inaction, a mass
atrocity will surely unfold in Aleppo, or elsewhere in Syria. We have
the power to prevent this needless death and advance our strategic
interests in the Middle East at the same time. If we do not, it will be
a shameful failure of leadership that will haunt us for a long time to
come."

Israeli Vice PM: US 'Undermining' Push for Iran War

Officials Slam Gen. Dempsey for Opposition to Attack

by Jason Ditz, August 31, 2012

Israeli officials are, as is so often the case these days, furious at
the US for what they say is an attempt to undermine their push for a war
against Iran, with a number of officials taking shots at Gen. Martin
Dempsey for yesterday saying he did not want the US "complicit" in such
an attack.

The term "complicit" enraged a number of officials, who say that the
word has "criminal connotations," while Vice Premier Moshe Ya'alon
bashed the US, accusing them of "undermining" the repeated Israeli
threats to attack.

Ya'alon said he believed the US comments, which on occasion are less
than enthusiastic endorsement for the attack on Iran, are "in part
responsible" for Iran believing Israel's threats are not credible, and
also condemned UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for visiting Iran to
attend the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit in Tehran.

Israeli analysts predicted Dempsey's comments might encourage Israel to
attack unilaterally, by convincing them that the Obama Administration is
unlikely to follow through on its own repeated threats to attack Iran.

(6) Moshe Ya'alon used to be Chief of Staff of the IDF

Forces. He currently serves as a member of the Knesset for Likud, as
well as the country's Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Strategic
Affairs. ...

(7) U.S. scales-back Military Exercise with Israel, making attack on

Exclusive: U.S. Scales-Back Military Exercise with Israel, Affecting
Potential Iran Strike

http://world.time.com/2012/08/31/exclusive-u-s-scales-back-military-exercise-with-israel-affecting-potential-iran-strike/

A smaller U.S. contingent may make it more difficult for the Israeli
government to launch a pre-emptive strike on Tehran's nuclear program.

By Karl Vick and Aaron J. Klein

Seven months ago, Israel and the United States postponed a massive joint
military exercise that was originally set to go forward just as concerns
were brimming that Israel would launch a strike on Iran's nuclear
facilities. The exercise was rescheduled for late October, and appears
likely to go forward on the cusp of the U.S. presidential election. But
it won't be nearly the same exercise. Well-placed sources in both
countries have told TIME that Washington has greatly reduced the scale
of U.S. participation, slashing by more than two-thirds the number of
American troops going to Israel and reducing both the number and potency
of missile interception systems at the core of the joint exercise.

The reductions are striking. Instead of the approximately 5,000 U.S.
troops <http://www.state.gov/t/pm/rls/rm/176684.htm> originally
trumpeted for Austere Challenge 12, as the annual exercise is called,
the Pentagon will send only 1,500 service members, and perhaps as few as
1,200. Patriot anti-missile systems will arrive in Israel as planned,
but the crews to operate them will not. Instead of two Aegis Ballistic
Missile Defense warships being dispatched to Israeli waters, the new
plan is to send one, though even the remaining vessel is listed as a
"maybe," according to officials in both militaries.

A Pentagon spokesperson declined to discuss specifics of the reduced
deployment, noting that planning for the exercise was classified. But in
an e-mailed statement, Commander Wendy L. Snyder emphasized that the
Israeli military has been kept informed of the changes. "Throughout all
the planning and coordination, we've been lock-step with the Israel
Defense Force (IDF) and will continue to do so," Snyder said.

U.S. commanders privately revealed the scaling back to their Israeli
counterparts more than two months ago. The official explanation was
budget restrictions. But the American retreat coincided with growing
tensions between the Obama and Netanyahu administrations on Israel's
persistent threats to launch an airstrike on Iran. The Islamic Republic
would be expected to retaliate by missile strikes, either through its
own intermediate range arsenal or through its proxy, the Hizballah
militia, which has more than 40,000 missiles aimed at Israel from
neighboring Lebanon.

In the current political context, the U.S. logic is transparent, says
Israeli analyst Efraim Inbar. "I think they don't want to insinuate that
they are preparing something together with the Israelis against Iran –
that's the message," says Inbar, director of the Begin-Sadat Center for
Strategic Studies at Bar-Ilan University. "Trust? We don't trust them.
They don't trust us. All these liberal notions! Even a liberal president
like Obama knows better."

The U.S. anti-missile systems are important because while Israel has
made
<http://world.time.com/2012/03/11/iron-dome-protects-israel-from-gazas-missiles-will-that-embolden-it-to-strike-iran/>
great strides in creating anti-missile shields that protect its
population, it doesn't have enough of them to deploy around the entire
country, even with the
<http://www.jpost.com/DiplomacyAndPolitics/Article.aspx?id=279194> U.S.
aid specifically dedicated to building more (as well
<http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4261594,00.html> as crucial
offensive capabilities, such as mid-air refuelers and possibly
bunker-busting bombs). That makes the presence of the Patriots – first
deployed to Israel during the First <http://topics.time.com/gulf-war/>
Gulf War, when <http://topics.time.com/saddam-hussein/> Saddam Hussein
fired Scuds toward the Jewish State — and other U.S. anti-missile
systems extremely valuable. Austere Challenge
<http://www.state.gov/t/pm/rls/rm/176684.htm> was billed by assistant
secretary of state Andrew J. Shapiro last November as "by far the
largest and most significant exercise in U.S.-Israeli history." A stated
goal was to "improve interoperability" between American and Israeli
anti-missile systems – which are already significantly linked. The U.S.
maintains an X-band radar installation in Israel's Negev Desert, pointed
toward Iran and linked to Israel's Arrow anti-missile system.

The radar is extraordinarily powerful, so sensitive it can detect a
softball thrown into the air from thousands of miles away. But
<http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,2115955,00.html> as TIME
reported earlier, only Americans are allowed to see what's on the
screens, a situation that likely serves to inhibit any Israeli decision
to "go it alone" against Iran, because the U.S. array can detect an
Iranian missile launch six to seven minutes earlier than Israel's best
radar. Difficult as it may be to imagine U.S. decision-makers holding
back information that could save Israeli lives, both by giving them more
time to reach a shelter, or their interceptors to lock onto and destroy
an incoming Shahab-3, the risk looms in the complex calculus of Israeli
officials mulling an attack on Iran.

Inside Israel, reports persist that prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu
and defense chief Ehud Barak are determined to launch a strike, and
American officials continue to urge restraint. Israeli analysts say
Netanyahu wants Obama to send a letter committing to U.S. military
action by a specific date if Iran has not acceded to concessions, but
the U.S. administration does not appear to be complying. U.S. Joint
Chiefs chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey
<http://www.jta.org/news/article/2012/08/31/3105636/us-general-dempsey-dont-wish-to-be-complicit-in-israeli-strike>
told reporters in London this week that a military strike could damage
but not destroy Iran's nuclear capability, and added, "I don't want to
be complicit if they choose to do it."

(8) Homeland Security becoming a 'para-military' operation - hollow
point bullets for who?

Homeland Security's Deadly Ammo Plan

By Brother Nathanael Kapner

Homeland Security just bought a load of deadly ammunition:

Some 750 MILLION rounds of hollow point bullets…so deadly and inhuman
that they've been outlawed by the Hague Convention for military use.

But Homeland Security is looking more and more like a 'para-military'
operation with little regard for humanitarian concerns.

Now, on whom does Homeland Security intend to use these bullets on …
enough to kill every American not once but twice? And does Congress know
about this outrageous purchase? Of course they do.

You see, the main players behind Homeland Security are Jewish Senators:
Joseph Lieberman, head of the Senate Committee for Homeland Security;
Carl Levin, head of the Senate Armed Services Committee; and Diane
Feinstein, head of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Don't be misled…Janet Napolitano, an alleged lesbian, who Alex Jones
calls Big Sis…has absolutely no power at all. She's nothing more than a
puppet.

Now throw into the mix former Homeland Security chief, Michael
Chertoff—whose porno scanners are in airports across Amerika…and all
four of these Zionist Jews' intimate ties to the Israeli Security
Apparatus—and you've got a made-to-order Jewish Gestapo operating under
the cover of 'Homeland Security.'

You think I'm kidding? It's all up on AIPAC's Website under its
supportive: "Homeland Security Monitor."

Now AIPAC—part of Jewry's ever-expanding international police
state—boasts that Napolitano just signed an agreement with the Israeli
foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman allowing Israelis to breeze through
Amerikan TSA lines. No pat downs…no porno-scanners…while the rest of us
gets the shaft.

What I'm getting at is this.

The infamous Patriot Act grants to Homeland Security the right to have
its own private army. And this 'militia'— now in formation—is arming
itself to the teeth.

Just who is Homeland Security arming itself against? The Taliban? Forget it.

In a disturbing yet not surprising development, the multi-million dollar
Jewish Lobby, the Southern Poverty Law Center—the SPLC—was absorbed into
Homeland Security in 2010 to "counter extremism" in Amerika.

Apparently, part of the SPLC's role is to train local police in
"pre-incident" terrorism.

Returning Vets, Anti-Abortion and Anti-Homosexual
Groups…Pro-Constitution and Patriot Groups like the Oath Keepers are
included on the list. Lots of Christians here…apparently targeted as
"pre-incident terrorists."

This is no conspiracy theory my friends. This is fact.

And the Black Vans are already picking up Vets like Brandon Raub…and now
an unnamed decorated Veteran whose father is a Christian Pastor.

Not charged with any offense, but after confiscating their guns,
thousands of Vets are disappearing into Psych Wards for the 'crime' of
criticizing the government.

Bottom Line: A Jewish-inspired persecution of Christians is now upon us.

But not only against Christians but against Liberty-Loving Americans as
well. Homeland Security's FEMA camps have plenty of coffins ready to
stuff their targets into.

[Clip: "What in the hell is this? Tens for thousands of coffins.
Officially, they're 'plastic grave liners.' The company that makes them
says they're just being stored for people's pre-needs. Well, who in the
hell has a pre-need for this many coffins? Unless their planning a
massacre."]

And the para-militarists at the Jewish-led US Department of Homeland
Security are gassing up their Black Vans—and if that doesn't work—to
open fire on us all.

(9) Finkelstein wrong about American Jews falling out of love with
Israel - Jeffrey Blankfort

<jblankfort@earthlink.net>

Hi Peter,

> Norman Finkelstein breaks with Chomsky on denial of Lobby's power
> http://www.newint.org/features/2012/06/01/american-jews-israel/
> Why American Jews are falling out of love with Israel
> New Internationalist magazine
> ISSUE 453, June 2012

These are very interesting times and I dare say no one can safely
predict what is going to happen in the Middle East, although I think
Netanyahu and Barak are so confident of their control over the US
Congress that, short of a public warning from the White House which is
not likely in the run up to the elections, they will take a chance and
attack Iran, knowing that both houses of Congress will applaud and the
talking heads from the Zionist think tanks who dominate the news
programs will guide the public (the absolute dumbest in the developed or
underdeveloped world!) into supporting Israel's action come what may
and, if necessary, push Obama into providing back-up air support. The
rest of the world will blame the economic catastrophe that is likely to
follow on Israel but, thanks to their control of Congress and the media,
Israel will sail through it, though it may lose the support of Europe.

Finkelstein doesn't really know the American Jewish community. The
dedicated sector, 20-30% is more pro-Israel than ever and the rest might
as well be Protestants, Catholics or Buddhists for all the influence
they have on US policy. (64% of the Jewish children in NY are ultra
orthodox and the Hasidim have essentially taken over the state, getting
money from the state for their schools and making church-state
separation a joke). Also, the notion that The Lobby shapes US policy
towards Israel and Palestine and not the rest of the Middle East is not
only nonsense, it defies reason, since the policies cannot be separated.
He must be the only person who doesn't think that Israel and the The
Lobby are setting our policy towards Iran. The fact of the matter is
that he really doesn't know very much about it. Which is even more true
for his mentor, Chomsky, who I consider to be one of the most important
assets for Israel in the US since he has almost singlehandedly provided
protective cover for The Lobby for the past 40 years , keeping the
Palestine solidarity movement staring off into space instead of going
after AIPAC and the Zio establishment which is now stronger than ever.

Best wishes,

Jeff
