On 9/11, Israeli politician and 9/11 conspirator Ehud Barak gleefully advocated a "War on Terror" that would ensnare Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Iran on Zionist-owned BBC news mere moments after 3000 civilians were massacred in the attacks were interviewed on globally broadcast Zionist Media. Barak, visibly unable to control his glee at the start of the interview, mentioned Bin Laden first, revealing prior knowledge of the planned antagonist of the fairytale. He also stated that there should be a “War on Terror” resulting in the invasion and assault on Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq and Libya. Netanyahu, giddy with uncontained excitement said “It’s very good”, when asked about the attack. Ehud Olmert, then Prime Minister of Israel flew in on September 10th for a secret, undocumented meeting with Guiliani.

When will a President be jailed in Nigeria? Nigeria has consistently been rated as one of the most corrupt nations in the world and where human rights violations and injustices are rampant. Many of our past presidents and heads of state whose administrations are adjudged as corrupt by anti-corruption and human rights watch- dogs are responsible for these economic and human rights abuses Their infractions against the Nigerian state border on crimes against humanity; yet, none of them (past or present, dead or alive) has ever been charged or sent to prison. Neither has any one of them been shot as they do in China. They are still around, attending the Council of State meetings and struting the landscape as elder statesmen offering advice on “how to move the nation forward”. Nothing can be more ironical. Compare this to Egypt where Hosni Mubarak and Muhammed Morsi have recently been jailed. Look at France where Nicolas Zarkozy is being investigated for corruption.

In the judge's dictum, he said that 'accepting bribes is akin to betraying your country', this was not just a condemnation of Olmert, but also a warning to Israel's entire political echelon'. Thus, in Israel, this sentence indicates that 'there is a free and independent justice system, which systematically confirm that everyone is equal before the law'.

Apartheid is a reality in the West Bank (By Glenn Robinson) America’s top diplomat, Secretary of State John Kerry, has found himself in a pickle for having used the word “apartheid” when describing a possible future for Israel if it forever remains in occupation of the Palestinian West Bank. This is truly a tempest in teapot. Kerry simply said what many Israelis say every day in Israel’s vibrant press: that permanent military occupation over the Palestinians in the West Bank will inevitably lead to a form of apartheid in all the lands Israel rules. Two former Israeli Prime Ministers, Ehud Barak of Labor and Ehud Olmert of Likud, have said the exact same thing as Secretary Kerry, as have countless Israeli scholars, politicians and ordinary citizens. President Jimmy Carter wrote a book making the same point. But Mr. Kerry may not have gone far enough in his analysis. No need to speak of future possibilities: Closer analysis would show that an apartheid regime is already in place in the West Bank. Wh ...

Another excellent article by Uri Avnery APRIL 05, 2014 Zionist billionaire eyes US presidential purchase EDITOR By Uri Avnery There is nothing better than a scandal every week. A juicy scandal excites people, engages the media, takes our minds off matters like war and peace, occupation and apartheid. Like panem et circenses (bread and entertainment) in ancient Rome. This week we had several scandals to occupy us. Ehud Olmert, a former prime minister, was convicted of taking huge bribes when he was the mayor of Jerusalem. He was paid for approving a monstrous building complex on the highest hill of West Jerusalem, visible from a great distance. As if this was not enough, Sylvan Shalom, a cabinet minister with half a dozen functions, was suspected of sexual assault. A former secretary remembered that 15 years ago he had attacked her in his hotel room. With such exciting news to deal with, who can spare the time and energy to think about the crisis in the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, which never really ...

Israel's former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert convicted in bribery case
JERUSALEM (AP) — An Israeli court on Monday convicted ex-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in a high-profile bribery case, crushing his hopes for a political comeback and setting the stage for him to become the first Israeli premier to go to prison. The verdict capped a four-decade political career that saw Olmert transform himself from a sharp-tongued backbencher into a global statesman whose push for peace with the Palestinians was cut short by his legal troubles. "It's a sad day for my country," President Shimon Peres, a Nobel peace laureate, said during an official visit to Austria. Olmert was among 13 government officials, developers and businesspeople charged in three separate schemes related to a housing development in Jerusalem. The Israeli media described the case as the largest corruption scandal ever exposed in Israel. According to the original 2012 indictment, millions of dollars illegally changed hands to promote a series of real estate projects, including the "Holyland" housing development, which ...

Making clear that no Zionist presence is welcome in the DC metropolitan area, throughout the event activists interrupted Olmert, discrediting the supposed "peace plan" he has been parading around as a viable solution.

WHY PRETEND? READ THE HUDAIBIYA TREATY by Emanuel Winston why pretend Mecca, Saudi Arabia Why pretend that Arab Muslims will ever commit to a lasting peace with the Jewish State of Israel? The bedrock of their inconstancy comes from the Koran. Even when Arab Muslim leaders are not observant Muslims, they invariably fall back on the instructions of Koranic law and Mohammed's teaching through the 'Hadith' (Islamic oral teachings) when they need to stir up their people. Another reason for this deep and abiding hatred for non-Muslims is a backward society, locked in the time warp of the 7th Century by the Mullahs who condemn their people to jealousy and hatred for any people who trek forward and accomplish. Every country's Foreign Ministry with well-educated bureaucrats would know that making an agreement with Islamic-driven nation is like using disappearing ink.

Not surprisingly, we have an eager partner in Israel straining at the leash to fulfill its long-term agenda to attack Iran alone (possible but doubtful) or along with its US ally that keeps getting reinforced by bellicose statements by its high officials like the one reported February 13 by ultra-right wing Strategic Affairs Minister Avigdor Lieberman. He commented in a radio interview that if necessary “We will have to face the Iranians alone, because Israel cannot remain with its arms folded, waiting for Iran to develop non-conventional (nuclear) weapons.” Officials like Lieberman, current Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are dangerous men on the far right allied with others in government and the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) all dripping war talk that must be taken seriously from a nation dedicated to conflict and never shy about striking the first all out aggressive blow.

Former PM Ehud Olmert says his plan involved evacuating 80,000 Israelis from West Bank, no Israeli presence in Jordan Valley
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's long-awaited peace proposal is to be officially unveiled soon. While we wait, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman gives us a sneak peak of what to expect: A phased Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank (based on the 1967 lines, with land swaps); unprecedented security arrangements in the Jordan Valley; a Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem; Palestinian recognition of Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people. It will not allow Palestinian refugees to return to Israel proper. If Friedman is right, the “Kerry Plan” will be less favorable to the Palestinians than the final offer made by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. Thus, one must ask: is Kerry rewarding Netanyahu for his hardline positions? Click here for Noam Sheizaf's full article:

According to Haaretz, Ehud Olmert, Israeli PM, said it was decided at least four months before that any kidnap of Israeli troops on its border would trigger war. On 12 July 2006 Hezbollah militants seized two Israeli soldiers sparking an all-out assault by Israel's military.
dward Snowden Nsa, European Union, Guardian, NSA, Snowden Nsa Leaks, Unicef, Politics News LONDON (AP) — Newspaper reports say the latest documents leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden show that British and American intelligence agencies monitored the communications of an Israeli Prime Minister and European officials, among hundreds of other targets in some 60 countries. The Guardian newspaper reported Friday that one 2009 document showed that Britain's eavesdropping agency, GCHQ, worked with the U.S.'s NSA to target an email address belonging to Israel's Ehud Olmert. Other prominent targets included a top European Commission official responsible for competition policy, German government buildings and the Thales group, a defense company partly owned by the French government. The report said the UN development program and the children's charity UNICEF, as well as several unnamed African heads of state, were among the spy agencies' targets. ALSO ON HUFFPOST:

Swiss study: Polonium found in Arafat's bones Paris, France - Swiss scientists who conducted tests on samples taken from Yasser Arafat’s body have found at least 18 times the normal levels of radioactive polonium in his remains. The scientists said that they were confident up to an 83 percent level that the late Palestinian leader was poisoned with it, which they said “moderately supports” polonium as the cause of his death. A 108-page report by the University Centre of Legal Medicine in Lausanne, which was obtained exclusively by Al Jazeera, found unnaturally high levels of polonium in Arafat’s ribs and pelvis, and in soil stained with his decaying organs. The Swiss scientists, along with French and Russian teams, obtained the samples last November after his body was exhumed from a mausoleum in Ramallah in the occupied West Bank. Dave Barclay, a renowned UK forensic scientist and retired detective, told Al Jazeera that with these results he was wholly convinced that Arafat was murdered. “Yasser ...

what killed Yasser Arafat! A rare but lethal poison Polonium is a soft, silvery-grey metal found in uranium ore. The isotope polonium-210 emits highly radioactive alpha particles, but they do not travel more than a few centimetres in air and are "stopped by a sheet of paper or by the dead layer of outer skin on our bodies,” says the International Atomic Energy Agency. For that reason polonium-210 is not a risk to human health as long as it remains outside the body. But a dose of 0.1 of a microgramme - the size of a speck of dust weighing less than a millionth of a snowflake - would be fatal if it were ingested in food or liquids or inhaled in contaminated air. Only a handful of people are reported to have died from polonium poisoning. The most famous case involves Alexander Litvinenko, a former KGB officer turned dissident who received political asylum from the British government and lived in London. Litvinenko died in November 2006, three weeks after meeting several Russians, including a one-time KGB o ...

Two lucky JDaters have a VIP tonight at 92Y and will meet former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert after his talk. If you were them, what would YOU ask him?
Yes, I agree, if all Palestinians returned to Palestine and Israel it would destroy both nations. Some reasonable compromise must be reached and not least, explained to refugees so that they can see that those who are refused access is for a good cause and not based on discrimination. It is a very difficult problem to tackle. Furthermore, those Palestinians that are not allowed to return to Palestine and Israel, need to have security that they will be treated well in the countries where they currently reside and will remain in future. So, in fact, it requires co-operation at a vast international level I never thought about before reading this article. "Among the major barriers to peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis is the so-called right of return. In its broadest formulation, this "right" belongs to some 4 million alleged descendants of the 700,000 or so Palestinian Arabs who left what is now Israel as the result of the war that began when Israel declared statehood in 1948. Palestinians say t ...
Lest we forget the friends of Ehud Olmert; billionaire Frank Lowy
November 8, 2013 Yesterday, the PA and scientists who studied the skeletal remains of Yasser Arafat confirmed (full scientific report here) that he was assassinated, poisoned with the highest dose of polonium ever recorded in a human being. The level was either 18 or 36 times the normal level (depending on how one counts a normal dose). The scientists rated the certainty of their findings on a scale of 1 to 6, giving the results a 5 score, meaning they had an 83% level of confidence. The scientists tested bone fragments from his body and the surrounding soil, where bodily fluids had leaked, and all the results were uniform. Thus, beyond a shadow of a doubt, Yasser Arafat was murdered in 2004. He originally became sick four hours after eating a meal in his compound three weeks before his eventual death. So just as Alexander Litvinenko was poisoned by KGB agents via a cup of tea drunk in a London tea shop, Arafat was poisoned through food he ate. Now we must consider who had motive, means and opportuni ...
Will Israel Strike Iran? Iraq is No Precedent A week after the administration first starting spinning the notion, the idea that the P5+1 talks with Iran made genuine progress toward a nuclear agreement has become conventional wisdom among the chattering classes. Based on little more than atmospherics generated by the Iranian charm offensive, Tehran offered the West nothing new and there is little reason to believe they think they need to give up enriching uranium or shut down their nuclear plants that are bringing them closer to a weapon. If the Obama administration is determined to press ahead toward what will be, at best, an unsatisfactory deal that will, despite the president’s protestations that any accord would be verifiable, lead inevitably to Iranian deceptions and an eventual bomb, then that will leave Israel’s leaders with a terrible dilemma. Their choice would then be between accepting a policy that places their country under an existential threat or breaking with its sole superpower ally an ...

THIS IS PART OF A PROPHECY GIVEN WAY BACK IN 2004 BY THE MIGHTY END TIME PROPHET DR DAVID EDWARD OWUOR THAT HAS COME TO PASS AND FULFILLED TWO-TIME CHANGE OF LEADERSHIP IN ISRAEL One of the most dramatic instances within the April 2nd 2004 vision of the Lord, was when the Lord lifted me up and took me across the entire Middle East. It was at that time, that the Holy Spirit began to speak with me about another set of events that would take place in Israel. These events the Lord said, would catapult the church to another level, and mark the threshold of rapture. As I was standing there and heaven still stood open, then He that sits on the Throne spoke with me about the two changes of government that were soon to take place in Israel as a sign that the rapture was near. As I was still standing there, then I saw the first change of government take place and all of a sudden the second change of government took place right before my eyes. It is this particular second change of government that seemed to be most ...

Citizenship - where does the loyalty lie? Posted by metamagic Anti-EU Jedi at 13:43 on 17 May 2008 In this increasingly mobile world more and more people are acquiring dual citizenship. Usually it's simply their adopted country and their native country but in some cases, particularly in the USA, there is another motive for duality. Take a look at these people who currently or have recently held positions of great influence and power in the American administration and ask yourself where do their loyalties lie? Puzzling too is the fact that under US law if you take up the citizenship of another country you relinquish your US citizenship. So how do these people achieve the impossible? If you are a supporter of the Israeli state how do you feel about the USA being infiltrated and usurped by its friend 'ally'?

Israel’s New Mideast Pressures Interviewee: Robert M. Danin, Eni Enrico Mattei Senior Fellow for Middle East and Africa Studies Interviewer: Bernard Gwertzman, Consulting Editor October 3, 2013 Iran's controversial nuclear program remains Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's "overarching concern," says CFR's Robert Danin, and his address this week at the UN struck "a cautionary tone" about new president Hassan Rouhani and the thaw in Tehran's relations with Washington. At home, Danin says that Netanyahu may face mounting political opposition from members of his own conservative Likud party as he works toward a final peace accord with Palestinians. "If Netanyahu is really close to coming to an agreement with the Palestinians, he may have to really upend his coalition in order to be able to proceed politically," he says. Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu walks from the podium after delivering his address to the 68th United Nations General Assembly (Mike Segar/Courtesy Reuters). In Prime Mi ...

MYTH: Israeli settlements are an obstacle to Mideast peace. FACT Paradoxically, perhaps the most prevalent myth about the Arab-Israeli conflict is the easiest to disprove both rhetorically and empirically. Consider the following facts: From 1949–67, when Jews were forbidden to live on the West Bank, the Arabs refused to make peace with Israel. From 1967–77, the Labor Party established only a few strategic settlements in the territories, yet the Arabs were unwilling to negotiate peace with Israel. In 1977, months after a Likud government committed to greater settlement activity took power, Egyptian President Sadat went to Jerusalem and later signed a peace treaty with Israel. Incidentally, Israeli settlements existed in the Sinai and those were removed as part of the agreement with Egypt. One year later, Israel froze settlement building for three months, hoping the gesture would entice other Arabs to join the Camp David peace process, but none would. The Palestinians also rejected an offer of autonomy ...
Madoff’s money ended up in Israel, off-shore banks, and Democratic coffers WMR has learned from the executor of the estate of a woman defrauded by jailed New York securities dealer Bernard Madoff that much of Madoff’s money never disappeared as allaged by some but was invested in businesses in Israel, transferred to off-shore bank accounts, and pumped in small amounts to the political campaigns of Democratic women candidates, particularly U.S. Senate candidates, endorsed by the group EMILY’s List. Madoff pleaded guilty to a long list of federal charges in 2009 and he was sentenced to 150 years in prison. By providing Senate candidate with laundered cash, Madoff and his associates could ensure that legislation, such as the 1999 repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, passed the Senate. Glass-Steagall provided strict controls over banks’ activities in the securities industry and established firewalls between banks and securities firms. Recipients of Madoff campaign cash were also assured that U.S. ...
As the Court allowed the Drama to extend yesterday in the testimony of Ehud Olmert and Shula Zakan, they have shown the World and the Citizens of the Sovereign State of Israel that money laundering and bribery is allowable if one is of the Inner Circle.

In a speech about the 2006 Israel-Lebanon conflict in August 2006, Bashar al-Assad said that Hezbollah had "hoisted the banner of victory," hailing its actions as a "successful resistance." He claimed that Arab resistance was growing stronger, and warned Israel that "your warplanes, rockets, and your atomic bomb will not protect you in the future." He called Israel an enemy with whom no peace could be achieved as long as they and their allies (especially the U.S.) support the practice of preemptive war. In the same speech, he also called Arab leaders that have criticized Hezbollah "half-men." In April 2008, Assad told a Qatari newspaper that Syria and Israel had been discussing a peace treaty for a year, with Turkey as a go-between. This was confirmed in May 2008, by a spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. As well as a peace treaty, the future of the Golan Heights is being discussed. Assad was quoted in The Guardian as telling the Qatari paper: . . . there would be no direct negotiations w ...

THE GAZA “CAST LEAD” MASSACRE More than 1,300 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip were killed during 22 days of Israeli shelling from sea, air and land. Palestinians in Gaza had nowhere to flee from Israel’s onslaught as the border has been closed for two years, with disastrous consequences for the 1.5 million in habitants of Gaza — the majority of them children and refugees. On 27 December, Israel began its bombardment on Gaza and then on 3 January began its ground offensive. Israel claims that it was targeting Hamas armed fighters and infrastructure, ostensibly in response to the firing of homemade rockets from Gaza into Israel. However, field investigations by the Gaza-based human rights organization Al Mezanshow that United Nations-administered schools, mosques, universities, emergency medical crews, private homes and other civilian objects have all been in Israel’s sights. Among those killed on the first day of bombing, when more than 100 tons of bombs were dropped on the tiny coastal enclave, i ...
