Israel’s Settlers Are Beginning to Miss Obama


If the unpredictable Trump launches a bid to achieve Israeli-Palestinian peace, it will be hard for settler supporters in the U.S. to accuse the Republican of throwing Israel under the bus.

ed note–yes, it’s getting old, for sure, but in the interests of posterity, we simply ‘gotta do it’…

Please note the sections of the article highlighted in red and reprinted here below–

…’The euphoria that gripped the settler movement resulting from the U.S. presidential election is wearing off and now, two months later, you don’t hear much of that exuberance anymore…’

…’Trump’s special representative for international negotiations made it clear that Israel is not about to receive carte blanche for settlement building, and that the new administration is set on including the Palestinian Authority in the picture…’

…’This isn’t the way it was supposed to happen…In off-the-record conversations with a number of settler leaders there is growing concern that “Donald Trump could be more dangerous (for Israel) than Barack Obama…’

–‘Obama was ideologically opposed to us, but he was also a rational politician…Trump on the other hand has no ideology and no rationality, and if he decides he wants to be the man to make the deal no one else has succeeded in achieving, he won’t be rational about it…’

…’Against Obama, the settlers had a wide range of allies in the United States. But now many of the Republicans and evangelical Christians who are among their greatest supporters are also in the Trump camp, and if Trump does launch his own diplomatic initiative, it will be much more difficult for them to accuse him of throwing Israel under the bus…’

…’It seems almost inconceivable that Trump could succeed where Obama failed, but the settlers fear Trump much more. They’re actually beginning to miss Obama…’

And, finally (drum role please)

–‘As another settler leader who frequently speaks with Netanyahu put it, “I think Netanyahu actually wanted Hillary Clinton to win. He preferred having a Democratic administration that would help him keep the status quo than an unpredictable Republican like Trump.’

Documents Reveal How Israel Made Amnesty’s Local Branch a Front for the Foreign Ministry in the 70s


The Israeli government funded the establishment and activity of the Amnesty International branch in Israel in the 1960s and 70s. Official documents reveal that the chairman of the organization was in constant contact with the Foreign Ministry and received instructions from it.

ed note–a lil’ something to keep in mind the next time some ‘international agency’ is grandstanding on some issue either pro or ‘con’ as far as Israel is concerned, because if the Jews had their hooks into orgs such as AmInt 50 years back, all can rest assured the number of other orgs ‘enjoying’ similar status has increased exponentially. Also note well how one Mr. Kaufman, who eventually became Chairman of the Board of the now much-vaunted B’Tselem organization (operating under the pretenses of opposing the occupation) also had regular meetings with the Israeli Foreign Ministry, and despite the manner by which he is depicted in this piece as being not quite as enthusiastic a spy as some of his counterparts, how nevertheless he was indeed working in collusion with the one ministry tasked with engaging in hasbara on a daily basis for the benefit of the Jewish state.

The Coming Siege against Jerusalem and Judea


ed note–as we have pointed out here as of late, one cannot understand the happenings taking place in the Middle East without first understanding the events surrounding 70 A.D. with Rome’s destruction of Judea, leading to the ‘dispersal’ and its attending 2,000 years of ‘suffering, persecution and anti-Shemitism’, all of which culminated into those events taking place within the last 100 years vis a vis the ‘in-gathering’ of Jews from the 4 corners and the creation thus of the ‘Jewish state’.

Besides this, one cannot understand the political gears turning on both a micro and macro level, without first understanding that the destruction of Judea in 70 AD considered to be the most tragic of all circumstances taking place in Jewish history, is not considered some isolated event in the past, but literally, a festering, throbbing wound that has existed for 2,000 years and which reached its climax in that seminal moment–no pun intended–in what today has become the ‘tragedies of tragedies,’ the Hollerco$t.

Having said that, as this Oped appearing in one of the most Jewish of all Jewish publications, the Times of I$rael, makes clear, the events of long-ago yesteryear, specifically 70 A.D. are still very much alive in the minds of today’s Jews who are out to make the great, great, grandchildren of yesterday’s Romans pay for the crimes of the forefathers, not only in resurrecting this Frankenstein creation known as the Jewish state, but as well, fighting her wars for her throughout the world in the interests of paying both principle and interest on that injury known as 70 A.D. and in the process, seeing to it that Rome and its modern day representation–the Christian West–are erased from the pages of history in the same way as recounted and celebrated in biblical stories surrounding the destruction of Egypt, Persia, and Greece.

EURASIA REVIEW – The grand order of things could be undergoing some major overhauls. To put it more bluntly, a war to reset the global financial order is about to be unleashed.
