United States of America Declared a Bandit State | Jan. 4, 2020 |

Europe and nations across the globe should express their disgust with the acts of banditry and bullying of the President . There should be no room for acts of fascism humanity had hoped to have left behind the genocides of the 20th century that tore up society. The lone action of the world's most powerful nation in terms of the economy and military, should be a shining example, not the acts crossing International Law and the Geneva Conventions. Friends of America or no friends of human kind by keeping silent or going through the motions of criticism without sanctioning barbaric acts.

Ever since the attacks of 9/11, the U.S. and allied nations have torn up existing laws in order to get the "bad guys". By doing so, terrorism across the globe has flourished and increased a tenfold with over a million deaths of innocent civilians: fathers, mothers and children. This got to stop NOW before the community of nations are dragged into an all consuming nuclear stand-off or a Third World War.

Human Rights record the United States and Israel -- record arms sales to war torn regions. Georgia, Azerbaijan, Middle East, Africa and Yemen.

After 35 Years, Iran Liquidates MKO Terrorist near Amsterdam | Aug. 10, 2018 |

The historical event of a savage bombing inside Iran's new leadership after the Islamic Revolution of 1979. The Pahlavi monarchy was ousted, kept in power for decades by foreign states: USA, UK and Israel (Mossad trained the Savak secret police). The occupation of the U.S. Embassy and hostage taking uncovered top secrets detrimental to both the CIA and Mossad. How the Reagan administration managed to make a deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran to keep the hostages imprisoned until after the presidential election of 1980 is one of the secrets of the "deep state" - Pentagon and IC (27 units).

A Corbyn Government Would Be a Terrorist Threat to the Western World | Besa Center |

By Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld. October 19, 2018

The intense public discussion on anti-Semitism in the UK Labour party has almost entirely overshadowed the problem of the huge risk a Corbyn-led government would represent to the Western world. Corbyn, a terrorist sympathizer, and various problematic associates of his would gain access to intelligence gathered by the British security services. How safe would it then be for other Western countries to continue to share high-level intelligence with their British colleagues?

While hundreds of articles have been published about anti-Semitism within the Labour Party since Jeremy Corbyn was appointed party leader in 2015, the issue has scarcely dented Labour's chances of winning the next parliamentary elections. This is due to the poor performance of the Conservative government in the Brexit negotiations. In the second half of September, polls showed more or less alternating results as to which party would win the most votes.

A Corbyn-led government should worry the Western world even more than it should British Jewry. That is because of the largely neglected problem of the access that Corbyn and his unsavory associates would gain to British intelligence. With Corbyn in Downing Street, how safe would it be for other Western countries to share high-level intelligence with the British secret services?

Corbyn has called genocidal terrorists "brothers" and "friends." As party leader he surrounds himself with people who are also terrorist sympathizers or who hold hard-left positions.

Remembering Manfred Gerstenfeld - Jewish renaissance man | JPost |

In the past two decades, Gerstenfeld became a leading expert on antisemitism - particularly the European resurgence, and warning of the "new" manifestations such as the BDS movement. In his view, these ideological campaigns were anchored in post-Holocaust inversion that demonized and delegitimized Israel and Jewish national self-determination. Working with Prof. Dan Elazar, he became closely involved with the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, chairing the Steering Committee, and founding the project on post-Holocaust studies and antisemitism.

Keir Starmer's suspension of Jeremy Corbyn echoes Kinnock's purge of Militant Tendency | Sky News - Oct. 29, 2020 |

Keir Starmer's Attacks on Labour's Left Are a Sign of Weakness, Not Strength | Jacobin - Aug. 26, 2021 |

From day one, Starmer's victory meant that Blairite functionaries were in the party's driving seat.

Morgan McSweeney, the architect of Starmer's leadership campaign and until recently his chief of staff, is close to New Labour strategist Peter Mandelson. "I don't know who and how and when he was invented, but whoever was responsible . . . they will find their place in heaven," Mandelson said of McSweeney in an interview last year.

Labour's General Secretary David Evans was a deputy party official in the early Blair years, while Starmer's head of political organizing, Matt Pound, moved across to party HQ after a three-year stint as top organizer for the right-wing faction Labour First. Pound's closest collaborator is Luke Akehurst, who is such a committed Atlanticist that he retrospectively cheerleads the US invasion of Vietnam, as well as being the director of a prominent pro-Israel lobby group and now a member of Labour's ruling national executive committee.

By handing the party to these anti-socialist zealots, Starmer has ensured that Labour is once more a safe vehicle for capital and the British state. As a neutered opposition, at pains to please the security services and antagonize the socialist left while dwindling electorally, the party now resembles not so much "capital's B team" as its permanent reserves. A central objective of those around Starmer is to render any future socialist leadership of the party impossible -- to properly seal the "tomb" from which Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell escaped in 2015.

Jeremy Corbyn, who currently sits as an independent MP, is expected to address a Stop the War Coalition protest on Thursday evening entitled "No War in Ukraine: Stop Nato Expansion".

A repeat of the lies and deception leading up to the Iraq War.

Keir Starmer's cynical embrace of NATO is a sad sight indeed | The Guardian Opinion |

What has happened toKeir Starmer, the seasoned anti-war protester?

The Labour leader and I both marched on the Stop the War demonstration against the Iraq war in 2003. I remember reading with interest his Guardian article "Sorry, Mr Blair, but [UN resolution] 1441 does not authorise force", questioning the legality of that war. Only two years ago, when he wanted to appear to be on the left of Labour as he sought election, I was happy to see him promise to bring forward a Prevention of Military Intervention Act.

Starmer's recent outburst about the Stop the War coalition - he claimed that we were effectively on the side of Vladimir Putin for opposing the march towards war over Ukraine - seems to be a critique of his former self. Does he now think he was not a "benign voice for peace" but "at best naive; at worst actively giving succour to authoritarian leaders"? Partly it is sad because he in all likelihood believed what he said then but has now joined the ranks of those politicians who will say anything, no matter how flatly it contradicts their previous statements, if it serves their current ambitions.

Top UK Jewish body tells visiting far-right MK Smotrich to `get back on a plane' | TOI |

British Jews rightly, and very explicitly, told Israeli politician and Jewish supremacist Bezalel Smotrich to get lost and go home. For Diaspora Jews, the era of sitting on the fence, and not just about Israeli racists, is ending

In a Hebrew tweet, the Board of Deputies of British Jews says it rejects Religious Zionism lawmaker's 'abominable views and hate-provoking ideology'.

The Board of Deputies of British Jews, UK Jewry's mainstream umbrella organization, tweeted in Hebrew that they "reject the abominable views and the hate-provoking ideology of Bezalel Smotrich."

"We call on all members of the British Jewish community to show him the door. Get back on the plane, Bezalel, and be remembered as a disgrace forever."

The MK has repeatedly made comments against Arabs and gay people that have provoked outcries.

1967 War: How a euphoric Israeli victory turned into a nightmare | MEE - June 5, 2017 |

A decade later, Israel's military plotted a lightning pre-emptive attack in which armour would sweep across the desert and its air force would attack Egyptian airfields in order to knock out the latter's air power. With Israeli air superiority guaranteed, it would proceed to the Suez Canal and await the inevitable collapse of Nasser's regime. Indeed, that's what happened. Nasser resigned in disgrace and was dead within three years.

Censored reporting of Israeli war crimes

The Israeli army's treatment of Egyptian prisoners during the six days of war and the period following is also scarcely reported. Because its strategy depended on a surprise attack and a mad dash across Egyptian Sinai, Israeli forces had no capacity for tending to the tens, or even hundreds of thousands of enemy soldiers who were left in the rear.
