Lieberman NOT Welcome in Egypt

Well, never mind about Israel celebrating its “so called” agreement with Egypt. Egypt did not celebrate, and it now seems that Egyptians are none too happy about Israel’s new Zionist Racist Genocidal Government. Israel has already lost the support of Turkey, and I predict Egypt is not far behind.

Egyptian Islamists: Deny entry to ‘Zionist terrorist’ Lieberman

A key Egyptian opposition faction have submitted a bill to deny entry to Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

Hussein Ibrahim, the chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood, wrote in the proposal that Lieberman deliberately harms the continuity of the Egyptian people and government. He also called the far-right minister “a Zionist terrorist” and said his policies are “overly extreme.”

More than a hundred MPs, all of them from the opposition, endorsed the motion.

Ibrahim told an Egyptian Web site on Friday that the Egyptian government did stand up properly to the newly appointed Israeli foreign minister, and that it should have boycotted him a long time ago.

Egypt has threatened to boycott Lieberman unless he issues an official apology for past remarks, including telling Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to “go to hell.”

Last week, Egyptian ambassador to Israel Yasser Rida threatened to boycott the anniversary ceremony to protest Lieberman’s pending appointment.

Funny that Lieberman makes a referral to “Hell” a place he surely will be going himself, just where he belongs, along with all the other murdering scum who believe they have a right to kill innocent Palestinians. “Hell ” is going to be VERY crowded!

WAR CRIMES~Israel To Stand Trial In Spain

Israeli War Criminals

Israeli War Criminals

Well, don’t ya just love Spain??? They did not cave in to the Jewish lobby or Lawyers representing Israel. There was a report HERE where a group of Lawyers representing Israel were attempting to get the Judge to drop the case, saying “Israel” would do it’s own investigation (ROTFLMAO) However, evidently the Spanish Judge thinks humanity can best be served if someone other than Israel handles the investigation and charges. I agree! Should they be convicted, they will be trapped in Israel for life, never being able to leave the country for fear of being arrested!! Story below:

CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY~Israel To Stand Trial in Spain

Spanish National Court Judge Fernando Andreu says he will redouble his probe of seven top Israeli military and government officials for suspected ‘crimes against humanity.’ He made the decision after determining that documents forwarded by the Israeli Embassy in Madrid show that Israel has decided not to prosecute anyone for the targeted assassination of Salah Shehadeh, the commander of the military wing of Hamas, in Gaza City in 2002. Spanish law allows the prosecution of foreigners for such crimes as genocide, crimes against humanity and torture committed anywhere in the world if the suspects will not be tried in their home country.

A seven-page court document says the initial evidence suggests that the attack in the densely-populated Gaza City, which killed 14 civilians, ‘should be considered a crime against humanity.’ Supporters of the lawsuit say Spain should pursue the suit because it has ‘universal jurisdiction’ in such cases.

Andreu will now probe former Israeli Defense Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, former Air Force Commander Dan Halutz, former head of the National Security Council Giora Eiland, and four other senior officials. Andreu will also seek testimony from Palestinian witnesses. The court will ask Israel to formally notify those named in the complaint so that they can be called by the judge to testify. Should Andreu decide to issue an international arrest warrant for any of the seven Israelis, they could be detained upon arrival in any EU member state.

The lawsuit has sparked outrage in Israel, which is trying to fend off foreign censure over the civilian death toll during Operation Cast Lead in January 2009. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has rejected the complaint as ‘delirious’ and pointed out that Shehadeh was a terrorist mastermind responsible for the deaths of many dozens of innocent people. ‘Whoever calls taking out a terrorist ‘a crime against humanity’ lives in an upside-down world,’ he said. Barak vowed to do ‘everything possible to get the investigation dismissed.’

Incoming Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called the Spanish probe outrageous. ‘It’s absurd: Israel is fighting against war criminals and they are charging us with crimes” said Netanyahu. ‘There is nothing more ridiculous and absurd than them accusing us, a democracy legitimately protecting itself against terrorists and war criminals, of these crimes; it is absurd and makes a mockery out of international law,’ he said

Sorry, but Israel makes a mockery our of international law, 62 UN resolutions against it, does not recognise the Geneva Convention, murders children, uses weapons in illegal ways, the lest is endless! This time they will pay! When Israel does not get its way it then resorts to threats, they are thugs, see below:

Knesset Member Aryeh Eldad, pointing to what many see as rank hypocrisy by Spain, has called for Israel to put former Spanish officials on trial for their role in the NATO bombing of Serbia in 1999. His official petition, which was sent to Israeli Attorney General Menachem Mazuz, says: ‘In those bombings, hundreds, perhaps thousands, of innocent civilians were killed because NATO pilots dropped their bombs from extremely high altitudes in order not to endanger themselves. They thus caused mass civilian casualties. It is fitting that the State of Israel try the Spanish political and military leaders for war crimes if Spain does not immediately revoke the charges against the Israeli Defense Minister and Chief of Staff.’

Sensing that the case has the potential to further cement Spain’s image as one of the most anti-Israel countries in Europe, Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Ángel Moratinos said his government would consider a proposal to amend the controversial war crimes law that now allows the court to investigate the Israelis. But he was immediately contradicted by Deputy Prime Minister María Teresa Fernández de la Vega, who stated defiantly that ‘Spain is a country ruled by law and the justice system [here] enjoys absolute independence. This was made clear to Israel and we are sure they understand this.’

So far none of the lawsuits filed against Israel in Europe have ever reached the stage of a court trial where Israeli leaders have appeared before a foreign judge. But Spain’s case against Israel could open a Pandora’s Box as sundry political organizations try to use the Spanish legal system to charge Israelis and others who are fighting terror. Indeed, Israel is now bracing for a wave of lawsuits which accuse it of human rights violations during Operation Cast Lead.

Well, if the Crime fits, you cannot acquit!!! Israel is GUILTY OF WAR CRIMES!

At the moment, Israel’s best option for avoiding a messy and precedent-setting trial may be to exert diplomatic pressure to persuade Spanish authorities that Spain has a vested interest in protecting its justice system from malicious abuse. Britain reached that conclusion in wake of the Almog affair in 2006. And Belgium rolled back its universal jurisdiction law in 2003 after former US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld threatened to pull NATO headquarters out of Brussels.

Here’s hoping the Spanish Government and Judge hold the line against what will surely be an onslaught of venom coming their way from all directions. After all, Israel is very used to being allowed to commit crimes and not be change. They have been getting away with murder for years, it’s time to stop it now!

Obama May Allow Iran’s Nuclear Ambition to Continue

And why not? They have the right to develop Nuclear energy just like everyone else does.

Bush had such hypocrisy attacking Iran for refusing to comply with UN resolutions on the development of its nuclear program while never mentioning Israel already has nuclear weapons and refuses to bring them under international control or scrutiny.

US may cede to Iran’s nuclear ambition

US officials are considering whether to accept Iran’s pursuit of uranium enrichment, which has been outlawed by the United Nations and remains at the heart of fears that Iran is seeking nuclear weapons capability.

As part of a policy review commissioned by President Barack Obama, diplomats are discussing whether the US will eventually have to accept Iran’s insistence on carrying out the process, which can produce both nuclear fuel and weapons- grade material.

“There’s a fundamental impasse between the western demand for no enrichment and the Iranian demand to continue enrichment,” says Mark Fitzpatrick, a former state department expert now at the International Institute for Strategic Studies. “There’s no obvious compromise between those two positions.”

The US has insisted that Iran stop enrichment, although Mr Fitzpatrick notes that international offers put to Tehran during George W. Bush’s second term as president left the door open to the possible resumption of enrichment.

“There is a growing recognition in [Washington] that the zero [enrichment] solution, though still favoured, simply is unfeasible,” says Trita Parsi, president of the National Iranian American Council. “The US may still have zero as its opening position, while recognising it may not be where things stand at the end of a potential agreement.”

Yesterday, Mr Obama summarised the US message to Iran as, “Don’t develop a nuclear weapon” – a form of words that would not rule out a deal accepting Iranian enrichment. Mr Bush was much more specific in calling Iran to halt enrichment.

Asked last month whether the administration was considering allowing Iran to keep a limited enrichment capability, Robert Wood, a state department spokesman, said: “I don’t know . . . Let’s let the review be completed and then we can spell out our policies.”

Some analysts say priority should be given to winning greater access for UN inspectors, to acquire more information about Iran’s enrichment plant in Natanz and fill in gaps in knowledge on Iran’s nuclear-related activities across the country. That could provide warning of any move to enrich uranium to weapons grade levels at Natanz and ease fears of clandestine facilities.

Privately both US and Israeli officials say that even the current, more limited inspection regime at Natanz would provide sufficient warning of any “breakout” towards a nuclear bomb. Outside Natanz, by contrast, information on Iran’s programme is diminishing.

The US line that Iran is seeking the capability to develop nuclear weapons – but not necessarily such weapons themselves – contrasts with Mr Bush’s insistence while in office that it sought nuclear weapons.

Iranian regime insiders have said they would expect a compromise by the US on enrichment to be reciprocated.

Obama Calls for Respecting Iran

Obama Stresses Respect for Iran’s Sovereignty

TEHRAN (FNA)- US President Barack Obama, in an attempt to soften Washington’s harsh tone on Iran, called on the international community to respect Tehran’s sovereignty in their efforts to deal with Tehran’s nuclear program.

Speaking to reporters during a joint news conference with his French counterpart Nicholas Sarkozy on Friday, the new US president said Iran’s sovereignty should remain intact.

Yet, Obama repeated the same old allegations made by his predecessor, George W. Bush, against Iran, and said Tehran should avoid promoting a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.

“There should be a mechanism that respects Iran’s sovereignty and allows them to develop peaceful nuclear energy
but draws a clear line that we cannot have nuclear arms race in the Middle East,” he said.

Gazan Injured_Three Boats Damaged by Israel off Gaza Coast

Well, you know they can’t allow Gaza fisherman to catch fish for food, gotta keep starving people. Israel most likely will claim the fish were members of Hamas so they had to fire on the boats!

Fisherman injured, three boats damaged by Israeli fire on Gaza coast

Gaza – Ma’an – A Palestinian fisherman was injured and three boats were damaged Friday morning after Israeli warships opened fire on the coastal areas near Rafah and As-Sudaniyah.

Head of Emergency and Ambulance Services in the Gaza Strip Dr Muawiyah Hassanein said the man was lightly injured.

Israeli warships stationed along the Gaza coast have continually attacked fishermen earning their livelihoods in the north, south and central areas.

More US Weapons Arrive in Israel

America wake up stop arming these lunatics!

As US arms shipment reaches Israel, President Obama urged to halt further exports

The new delivery to Israel of a massive consignment of US munitions, revealed by Amnesty International today, throws into question whether President Obama will act to prevent the US fuelling further Israeli attacks against civilians that may amount to war crimes, as were perpetrated in Gaza.

According to new information received by Amnesty International, the Wehr Elbe, a German cargo ship which had been chartered and controlled by US Military Sealift Command, docked and unloaded its cargo of reportedly over 300 containers at the Israeli port of Ashdod, just 40 km north of Gaza by road. The German ship left the USA for Israel on 20 December, one week before the start of Israeli attacks on Gaza, carrying 989 containers of munitions, each of them 20 feet long with a total estimated net weight of 14,000 tons.

“Legally and morally, this US arms shipment should have been halted by the Obama administration given the extent of the evidence showing how military equipment and munitions of this kind were recently used by the Israeli forces for war crimes,” said Brian Wood. “Arms supplies in these circumstances are contrary to provisions in US law.”

Asked about the Wehr Elbe, a Pentagon spokesperson confirmed to Amnesty International that “the unloading of the entire USmunitions shipment was successfully completed at Ashdod[Israel] on 22 March”.

BOYCOTT~Illegal Settler Avocado Goes to Jail

I just love how they reported this.

Londoners lock up criminal Israeli goods in Tesco on Sunday 29 March!

Pictured below is a convicted Illegal Settler Avocado~LOCK IT UP!

Sunday 29 March 2009, Londoners converged towards Tesco supermarkets in West London in solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.

Avocadoes, pomellos, cherry tomatoes, herbs and dates grown in Israel and on illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian West Bank were trapped in baskets and trolleys in order to disrupt the sale of such produce and symbolise the need for clear international action against illegal Israeli settlements and Israeli war crimes in the region. Leaflets were placed on the empty shelves explaining the role of Israeli goods in funding Israeli settler colonialism and state violence.

Tesco, and most supermarkets in Britain, stock and sell Israeli goods including produce from illegal Israeli settlements implanted in the occupied Palestinian West Bank. Some of this settlement product is misleadingly labelled ‘West Bank’ leading many customers to believe they are buying Palestinian produce, while some is labelled ‘made in Israel’ even though the settlements are clearly colonial entities outside of Israel’s internationally recognized borders.

The event was timed to mark Yom el Ard, the yearly celebration of the Palestinian civil rights movement, as well as the global day for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions ( http://www.alternativenews.org/content/view/1668/381/, http://bdsmovement.net/?q=node/351, http://www.alternativenews.org/content/view/1615/1/)

In recent months, the global pressure for Israel to end its violence against Palestinians has been increasingly felt inside Israel.( http://www.alternativenews.org/content/view/1605/110/)


I say lock em all up and throw away the key! Keep hitting Israel in the wallet where it will hurt! Boycott anything with a bar code that begins with 729 or anything grown in the West Bank on illegal land.
