Israel dismisses US, EU criticisms of settlements plan

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has dismissed criticisms by the United States and the European Union (EU) of the Zionist regime’s plan to build more than 1,000 settler units in the occupied Palestinian lands.

“I’ve heard the claim that our construction [of 1,060 new settler units] in Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem (East al-Quds) distances peace. It’s this criticism that distances peace. These statements are detached from reality,” the Israeli premier said on Tuesday. Continue reading Israel dismisses US, EU criticisms of settlements plan

US to train Syria rebels for political, not military solution: US official

(EDITOR’S NOTE: The importance of Allen’s words here cannot be overstated enough. It is a very, very, VERY thinly veiled admission of the Empire’s complete and utter failure to dislodge the Syrian Arab Republic’s democratically elected government. It is an admission that despite all of the money, weapons, logistics and unlimited political support that the West, its Zionist overlords, the Gulf regimes and demented neo-Ottoman caliph-wannabe Erdogan have been providing the Takfiri rebels over the past three and a half years, it simply hasn’t worked and cannot work. With the neocons and their liberal interventionist allies at the helm, it would obviously be naive and foolish to scream victory or declare that the nightmare plaguing Bilad al-Sham is over, but what can be noted with confidence is that we are REACHING that point. Zio-Imperialism played its hand and Zio-Imperialism lost, thanks to the steadfastness the Syrian Arab Army, Hizbullah and the NDF, along with the committed support of Iran, Russia and China. And it’s now only a matter of time before the monsters call it a day as they can’t continue to cover up their humiliation forever.  ~ Jonathan Azaziah)

The United States does not expect Syrian rebels it plans to train to fight Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants to also take on Syrian Arab Army forces, but sees them as a crucial part of a political solution to end the war, a senior US official said.

The US, which is leading an international coalition bombing ISIS in Syria, has said it wants to train and equip so-called “moderate” rebels to fight the militant group which has seized tracts of land in Syria and neighboring Iraq.

How Money From Pro-Israel Donors Controls Westminster

by Alastair Sloan, Middle East Monitor

Around this time last year, parliamentary records show, the retired property developer and hugely generous Labour party donor, Sir David Garrard, had given a modest £60,000 towards the party’s election campaign for 2015. It came in addition to around half a million he had already given since 2003.

Fast forward to 16 June of this year, Garrard hosts a Labour Friends of Israel event, at which Labour leader Ed Miliband is the main speaker. The prime minister hopeful had, the year before, proclaimed that he was a Zionist. The lobbying group he addressed boasts dozens of Labour peers and MPs amongst its membership, including the Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls.

That same day, Garrard transferred a whopping £630,000 to the Labour party accounts, over ten times his donation from the previous year. Continue reading How Money From Pro-Israel Donors Controls Westminster

The Dawkins Doctrine: How ‘Critical Thinking’ Atheists Become Servile Followers of Dogma

Originally posted April 2013.

The ‘New Atheists’, who claim to be at the cutting edge of critical, independent thought, have adopted the false dogma of 9/11 as their religion.

I want to start out this piece by making a couple of things clear about my beliefs. I do not suggest for a millisecond that readers should care; there’s nothing more nauseating than a person who trumpets their personal beliefs at any given opportunity. (Sadly in the case of many atheists, this is often done in the pursuit of smugly asserting one’s perceived intellectual superiority).
