PALESTINE:
THE REASON ISRAEL WAS CREATED
part of a snowshoefilms Bilderberg 2012 series
At the Bilderberg 2012 coven, Bilderberg-watcher Joel Weisshaus explains that Israel was created by the Rothschilds as a nation-state to hide their money, and a group - the Zionists - who would front for them.

ISRAEL HAS USED US LIKE A WHORE
It wasn't easy finding Jim Traficant. Without the help of the American Free Press, (AFP), we never would have found him. Traficant of Youngstown Ohio was running for his old Congressional seat. What sort of campaign could he be running? After all, we'd seen the Greta von Sustern Fox News interview (Sept. 9, 2009, just a few days after Traficant was released from prison). Here's some of what Traficant had said, "I believe that Israel has a powerful strangle hold on the American government. They control...the House and Senate. 
They have us involved in wars of which we have little or no interest. Our children are coming back in body bags. Our nation is bankrupt over these wars, and if you open your mouth, you get targeted. And if they don't beat you at the polls, they'll put you in prison... It's an objective assessment that no one will have the courage to speak about. They're controlling much of our foreign policy. They're influencing much of our domestic policy. Wolfowitz as Under Secretary of Defense manipulated President Bush #2 back into Iraq. They pushed definitely, definitely to try and get Bush, before he left, to move into Iran. We're conducting expansionist policy of Israel and everybody's afraid to say it. They control much of the media..."
WAS IT POSSIBLE somewhere in Ohio someone could say such things and not be ostracized, denounced, trounced? Actually, no. There really was no campaign. Few in the political business dared have anything to do with him, donate to him, invite him, quote him. Only a maverick Tea Party organizer offered him an evening campaign event. Otherwise, the popular sheriff and then Congressman was pretty much shunned. And yet he came in a close third on Nov.2, 2010, with over 30,000 votes.

IN SOLIDARITY WITH GAZA - Milwaukee Vigil for Peace and Justice in Gaza: over 500 gathered in support of the end of the siege on Gaza. Br. Othman Atta led the event with an overview of the situation some are calling a holocaust on the Palestinians. "We call on our government to end the billions of tax dollars we give to Israel on an annual basis as well as the delivery of modern weaponry that Israel uses to occupy and terrorize the Palestinian population." Jan4, 2009.  As of Friday 1/16/09 over 1100 Palestinians have been killed, over 700 estimated women and children civilians while 13 Israeli defence forces have been killed, 4 due to 'friendly fire.

JEWS: STOP SENDING MONEY FOR THESE CRIMES
Gush Shalom peace activist Teddy Katz beseeches Jews and Goy alike, stop sending money for all these crimes. And make no mistake, Katz said, "these are crimes committed by Jews." And the crimes continue unabated.
  Katz notes that the money (and support) for Israel's crimes is predicated on Jewish guilt for not being in Israel, so send money and support for anything & everything Israel does. With this unending and blind support, reinforced by the ideology that Jews are permanent victims: "...the situation nowadays, more than 60 years after World War II, is that we holy, chosen Israelis, until this very day, we are able to kill a hundred Palestinians a day and still telling the world that we are always the eternal victims..." Katz pleads: STOP SENDING MONEY FOR ALL THESE CRIMES, AND MAKE NO MISTAKE, THESE ARE CRIMES COMMITTED BY JEWS. Until the money dries up, the Israelis won't sit down and negotiate, won't follow international law, won't give up one inch of what they have stolen and continue to steal.
Katz spoke in Olean New York at St. Bonaventure University (Franciscan), April 15, 2005. The entire video with questions and answers was posted on google video in 2005.

ISREAL-FIRSTERS: THE GREATEST DANGER

IRAQ: A CONTINUATION OF THE 60-YEAR ISRAELI NAKBA
Dahlia Wasfi, M.D. (part 2) Daughter of a Jewish mother and an Iraqi Muslim father, Wasfi suggests that the U.S. war/genocide on Iraq is an extension of the 60-year occupation of Palestine, al Nakba: "That is what's going on here. It's much bigger than 2001 or 2003. There are joint American-Israeli operations in occupied Palestine, in occupied Iraq. Ours is a blind, military, political and financial support that is the only reason that the Israelis can continue to do what they do." Wasfi spoke to the Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) Winter Soldier events in March, 2008.

RACHEL CORRIE - AN AMERICAN HERO: Dr. Dahlia Wasfi
In her Winter Soldier II testimony Dr. Wasfi paid tribute to Rachel Corrie.  "Rachel at the time -- 2003 -- was a 23-year-old college student who, after September 11th, wanted to learn about other cultures...wanted to try to understand what was going on. Tragically on March 16, 2003 Rachel was crushed by an Israeli Caterpillar D-9 Bulldozer (commanded by the Israeli Defense Forces) while blocking a home demolition in Rafah with the International Solidarity Movement. full text/more

TINY ISRAEL IS THE WORLD'S SECOND TERROR STATE: Norman G. Finkelstein (De Paul, Chicago) explains the odds set by the Israelis: you kill one of ours, we kill 400 of yours; and so on. The little terror state of Israel, nearly indifferent to world opinion, can keep on killing and growing as long as it's backed up by the U.S. Prof Finkelstein outlines Israeli war crimes in Gaza and Lebanon and notes that Israel's last war on Lebanon, intended to wipe out the Hezbollah, was “a disaster for Israel and a defeat for the U.S.” And like many in the U.S., Israelis are beginning to recognize that their governments lie to them as a matter of course. (UW Parkside, Racine, WI Nov. 9, 2006. 1 hr.)

Israel's latest black op - the most transparent yet?
The reader of the mainstream media is confronted today by an awkward dilemma. Was the bombing of the Radisson SAS Hotel in Amman, Jordan, on the evening of November 9, 2005, the work of a suicide bomber, as most reports maintain - or were the explosives actually placed in the ceiling above, as was reported by two sources, Reuters and Mary Fitzgerald, a former reporter for the Belfast Telegraph?

TEDDY KATZ: ISRAEL, TANTURA & OTHER CRIMES Israeli historian, peace activist and a leading member of Gush Shalom tells the story of his political awakening, and then his discovery of 'a great, great lie.' "I grew up in Israel. I spent my first 40 years eating and swallowing everything I was given to swallow, without any questions.' Then, In his mid 40s, Katz went back to school -- Haifa University - for a masters in history. Katz learned -- on his own -- that "one of the very first decisions new Jewish State made was to make an ethnic cleansing of their own, of the Palestinians." Katz wrote his thesis on the massacre of Tantura, one of the 553 Palestinian coastal villages demolished in 1948. In the Q & A session (part 3) Katz is asked, "How many American Jews would be in favor of what you are suggesting?" He answers: "Talking about the American Jews I know that, unfortunately, most of the most of them are always behind the Holy Government of George W. Sharon. Mainly because of one main reason: they live out[side] of Israel; they have somehow bad feelings about it: 'We're not there. We must help.' And this help is saying: 'Amen on everything the Israel government says and does - no matter what it is.'" Katz concludes his bitterly ironic remarks with an appeal: "I need your help. Not your President's help. Your help. Stop sending money for all of these crimes. And these are crimes made by Jews." St. Bonaventure University, Olean, NY April 14, 2005.

STRAUSSIANS, MY BEHIND: NORMAN G. FINKELSTEIN
Appraising the cabal of neo-con Straussians running the Bush administration, Finkelstein suggests they use their political mensch, Machiavelli, as ideological babble to cover their single interest, power. "They appropriate anything which justifies their greed, which justifies their power. Straussians, my behind." Prof. Finkelstein addresses also U.S.-Israeli integration, and Christopher Hitchens ("a showboat run amuck.") Part 2 conclusion of a March 10, 2004 interview, DePaul University, Chicago.
