    Now Jews are White? These racist bastards don’t know what to do with the Jews. By Hugh Fitzgerald, August 8, 2019: Part One: Appearing on a “hip-hop” radio show in New York, Ebro In the Morning, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez agreed with the interviewer, Ebro Darden, in his claim that there were “white supremacist Jews” who aligned with “racism.” According to Fox News, Darden remarked, “How do you have white supremacist Jews?” “How do you have these individuals who are legit aligning with racism and white supremacy, but they’re Jewish?” he asked. “It’s something that most people can’t wrap their brains...

    Syrian President Bashar Assad met on Tuesday in Damascus with an unnamed senior Iranian official to discuss ways to cope with Israeli airstrikes in the war-torn country, reported regime-affiliated Syrian newspaper Al-Watan. According to the report, the Iranian official also discussed with Assad the Trump administration’s Mideast peace plan and presented Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s plan to contend with it. The report comes against the backdrop of recent attacks on pro-Iranian forces in Syria, some which have been attributed to Israel though it denies involvement. In other cases, Israel has taken responsibility for attacks in Syria. In the...

    Keith Ellison Embraces Anti-Semitic UK Leader Jeremy Corbyn by Ariel Behar • Jul 3, 2019 at 1:35 pm Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, a former Democratic National Committee deputy chairman, posted a photo of himself Tuesday night with U.K. Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn. Corbyn's Labour Party has been embroiled in an anti-Semitism controversy that has seen key leaders leave the party. Nearly 40 percent of British Jews said they would consider leaving the U.K. if he were to become prime minister. Ellison, a savvy politician, has to be aware of Labour's problems. That did not give him pause about...

    Iran Preparing a Worldwide Terror Network by Yaakov Lappin Special to IPT News July 2, 2019 https://www.investigativeproject.org/7970/iran-preparing-a-worldwide-terror-network An Iranian network of terrorist cells is spread out around the world, ready for activation at any time as tensions in the Persian Gulf remain high. Threats by the Islamic Republic to escalate its standoff with the United States mean that the chances of an Iranian proxy terrorist activation are rising. Biting American sanctions are causing unprecedented damage to the Iranian economy. In response, the radical Shi'ite regime has already provided the world with a sample of its ability to order attacks that...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took his first steps Sunday to express his gratitude to President Trump, unveiling, at a specially convened cabinet meeting, a plaque marking the spot where Israel’s newest town — Trump Heights — will sit. Eventually. The new community is located on the occupied Golan Heights, which — in a highly controversial move that upended decades of U.S. foreign policy — Trump recognized as being part of sovereign Israel last March. The establishment of Trump Heights — Ramat Trump in Hebrew — is another sign of the flourishing political relationship between the Israeli and American leaders,...

    DUBAI—Two tankers were damaged in attacks off the coast of Iran early Thursday, including one operated by a Japanese company, on a day when Tehran rebuffed attempts by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to ease a military standoff with the U.S. The incidents sent oil prices sharply higher, reigniting fears of trade disruptions in the Strait of Hormuz, through which over a third of the world’s seaborne crude oil is shipped. Brent crude, the international benchmark for crude prices, rose 4% on Thursday to $62.37. The attacks appeared to use relatively sophisticated weapons, according to early assessments, and came within...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg on Tuesday warned that if Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu carries out his plan to annex communities in Judea and Samaria, he would if elected ensure no US taxpayer funds support the move. ​“If Prime Minister Netanyahu makes good on his threat to annex Israeli settlements in the West Bank, a President Buttigieg would take steps to ensure that American taxpayers won’t help foot the bill​,” he said during a speech at Indiana University, according to The New York Post. Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, said that in the same way an American patriot...

    Former IAEA official says Israel, Gulf states, 'need to be worried' about Iran's emerging nuclear abilities. Olli Heinonen, who headed the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) security team and served as the organizations' deputy director general, on Wednesday morning told Army Radio that Israelis on the whole are not aware of the severity of the Iranian threat. "Israelis need to be worried, and the Gulf states also have reason for concern," Heinonen said. "How will you be able to ensure your security if Iran achieves nuclear abilities?" In the full interview, which will be aired Thursday morning, Heinonen said that...

    Israel and the US will offer incentives to Russia later this month in a bid to curb Iran’s influence in Syria, which could include legitimizing the continued leadership of Syrian leader Bashar Assad, a London-based Arabic newspaper reported Sunday. The incentives will be raised at an unprecedented trilateral meeting of national security advisers scheduled for later this month in Jerusalem, according to a report in Asharq al-Awsat that quoted Western diplomats and was cited by Israel’s Kan public broadcaster. The report did not clarify what the other proposals could be. US National Security Adviser John Bolton, Israeli National Security Adviser...

    Speaking on state TV of the prospect of a war in the Gulf, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei seemed to dismiss the idea. "There won't be any war. ... We don't seek a war, and (the Americans) don't either. They know it's not in their interests." The ayatollah's analysis -- a war is in neither nation's interest -- is correct. Consider the consequences of a war with the United States for his own country. Iran's hundreds of swift boats and handful of submarines would be sunk. Its ports would be mined or blockaded. Oil exports and oil revenue would halt....

    JERUSALEM (AP) — Facebook says it has identified a private Israel-based influence campaign aimed at disrupting elections in various countries and has canceled dozens of accounts that engaged in spreading disinformation. Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebook’s head of cybersecurity policy, told reporters Thursday the tech giant had purged 65 accounts, 161 pages and dozens of groups. He says they primarily posed as political candidates and peddled fake news about elections, mostly in Sub-Saharan African countries, and with some scattered activity in Southeast Asia. The pages racked up 2.8 million followers and hundreds of thousands of views.

    The representative’s account of the Arab-Israeli conflict relies on origin myths about the birth of Israel. On Friday, Representative Rashida Tlaib was attacked by President Donald Trump for a “horrible and highly insensitive statement on the Holocaust” and for having “tremendous hatred of … the Jewish people.” Trump’s off-base attack distracted from the actual problems with Tlaib’s account of the Arab-Israeli conflict, in which she deployed deliberately imprecise language, misleading her listeners about the early history of the conflict in Palestine and misrepresenting its present and possible future. Tlaib told the hosts of the Yahoo News podcast Skullduggery that when...

    I woke up the other day and checked my messages. The first was from the most right-wing member of the state Senate. “Trump needs to rein in Captain Kangaroo and Mike Plumpeo,” read the message from Mike Doherty of Warrren County. “They are out of control.” The first reference is to John Bolton, the comic character with the white mustache. He got the job as President Trump’s national security adviser despite opposing the president on virtually every aspect of his “America First” foreign policy. The second reference is to Mike Pompeo, the somewhat portly secretary of state who is, like...

    A Democratic lawmaker came under fire over the weekend, after she claimed that Palestinian Arabs living in the British Mandate prior to the establishment of the State of Israel “provided” a safe haven to Jews after the Holocaust. Rashida Tlaib, a freshman Democrat representing Michigan in the US House of Representatives, said in an interview with Yahoo!’s Skullduggery podcast program Saturday that she felt pride in the fact that her “ancestors, Palestinians” provided Jews with a haven after the Holocaust. “Let me tell you, I mean, for me, just two weeks ago or so, we celebrated, but just took a...

    CNN's veteran news anchor and international correspondent Jim Clancy has provoked controversy after a series of bizarre anti-Israel tweets following Wednesday's deadly terrorist attack in Paris. Journalists throughout the world and from across the political spectrum reacted with horror at the slaughter of 12 people at Charlie Hebdo's Paris offices yesterday. The satirical magazine was targeted by Muslim extremists wielding Kalashnikov rifles, after years of threats and previous attacks by Islamists over several cartoons it published which mocked Islam and Muslim leaders - in addition to countless others mocking other religious and secular figures. Clancy, however, took exception to the...

    A new animated video by Israeli animation firm "The Scratch Group" explains the complex situation Israel is in, with regard to Arab terror from Gaza – and it does so, arguably, better than all of the official spokesmen combined. In under three minutes, the talented team conveys the frustrating dilemmas Israel faces in its asymmetric war against a terror state that has the world on its side. Commentators are divided with regard to the success of Operation Pillar of Defense, but there is general agreement that Israel's effort in the field of hasbara – or national public relations and information...

    Israel's top spokesmen struggled all day Sunday to respond to tough questions from the foreign press as images of children carried out on stretchers from the collapsed Kafr Kana building ran on the world's TV screens nonstop. During Sunday morning's cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert ordered the IDF Spokesman's unit to release footage of Katyusha rockets being fired from Kafr Kana near the building that was struck, in an effort to counter the pictures of the building lying ruins after being destroyed as the apparent result of an IAF missile strike. But the footage was not released until 7:45...
