City of fear

A few days ago, I was driving through Qalandiya checkpoint for the first time since I came back to Jerusalem.

My dad, sitting next to me, had to yell “stop here!” at me as I was queuing behind a car at the checkpoint.

“You’re too close,” he said, “stop and wait for them to call you, otherwise they’ll shoot you and not even care.”

When I left here to begin my life as a university student four years ago, and despite my sense of general optimism, I never really believed that I would come back to a better and more hopeful Jerusalem.

Netanyahu Expected to Be Questioned as a Criminal Suspect

The potential investigation of the prime minister follows information provided to law enforcement by a source close to Netanyahu, Abramovich said. The current investigation would reportedly apparently be carried out not only in Israel, but also in the United States and France.

Earlier this month, Channel 10 reported that Netanyahu is being investigated in connection with a massive money-laundering scheme.

WATCH VIDEO HERE: http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/11/11/watch-anti-migrant-video-goin...
A nearly 20 minute viral video highlighting the crime and radicalization sweeping Europe amidst the ongoing Migrant crisis has spurred widespread censorship by video giant YouTube.

Entitled “With Open Gates: The forced collective suicide of European nations,” the popular cinematic-style video received more than 1.2 million views after being uploaded Monday before getting hit with alleged copyright claims by “[Merlin] IDOL” – a company regularly accused of falsely targeting online content.

Israel has asked the United States to raise the amount of the annual defense aid from the current 3 billion dollars to 5 billion dollars

Israel's request is intended to deal with future threats given the current instability of the Middle East and the threats posed by Iran and by terrorist organizations. "Israel claims that Iran's economic prosperity due to the removal of sanctions will allow it to increase its support to organizations hostile to Israel in Syria, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories; Washington say this concern is exaggerated," according to Reuters.

As recently reported by ynet, Israel's government has recently presented to the US government a list of requests for special military equipment for the next twenty years.

Shadowy Web Site Creates Blacklist of Pro-Palestinian Activists

A new website is publicising the identities of pro-Palestinian student activists to prevent them from getting jobs after they graduate from college. But the website is keeping its own backers’ identity a secret.

“It is your duty to ensure that today’s radicals are not tomorrow’s employees,” a female narrator intones in a slick video posted to the website’s YouTube account.

New Zealand’s Zionist Diplomacy in the UN Security Council: “Israel Has a Right to Defend Itself”

The reprehensible draft ‘resolution’ circulated by New Zealand (NZ), the present chair of the UN Security Council, is so blatantly biased against the Palestinian people that it proffers, in this instance, the correct diplomatic protocol to mind it’s own business….. particularly as NZ is an on-the-record, apologist and morally blind supporter of Israel. On July 22, 2014 as Israel’s vicious war on the people of Gaza raged relentlessly, Prime Minister John Key, repeated the zionist mantra that “Israel has a right to defend itself.”

Are Israel’s war crimes no longer good for business?

Israeli arms companies promote their products as “combat proven.” That choice of words suggests Israel’s ability to test weapons on Palestinians has become a selling point.

Such a ploy was in evidence following Israel’s 51-day attack on Gaza last year. Once the attack had been completed, Israel’s arms industry rushed to try and impress prospective clients by telling them that new drone technology had been showcased during it.

While drawing attention to the effectiveness of its weapons may have filled the order books of Israeli arms companies in the recent past, it now seems that growing public opposition to the brutal oppression of Palestinians is starting to hit Israel’s military exports.

US Plans $1 Billion Annual Hike in Israel Military Aid

While American cities decay and and it's people struggle it's Jewish controlled government is going to ramp up military funding to the racist genocidal apartheid state of Israel.

According to reports in the Israeli press, planned talks between Israel and the US on a one-time, multi-billion dollar military aid package in “compensation” for US approval of the Iran nuclear deal remain on hold, with focus on a planned increase in annual military aid to Israel.

The US currently sends Israel $3.1 billion annually in military aid, and the increase is expected to bump this up by roughly another billion dollars.

ISIS, Israel, Iraq, And Syria: It’s All Part Of The Plan

Israel lacks a national motto. If its leaders are looking for a Latin one, “carpe chaos” would be an apt and honest choice.

“Seize the chaos” is half of Israeli foreign policy in a nutshell (the other half being the instigation of that chaos in the first place). Indeed, even its friends in the media cannot help but put it in such terms. For example, The New York Times recently reported about the “…many Israeli leaders and thinkers seizing on the chaos in Syria to solidify Israel’s hold on Golan.”

This refers to the Golan Heights, which Israel captured from Syria in 1967 and has occupied ever since. Even the Israel-enabling United Nations considers that occupation and subsequent annexation to be unjust and illegal. Returning Golan to Syria has long been advanced as part of a potential peace deal.

Suddenly the Zionist Controlled Media Don't Want To Say a Word about Russia and ISIS

Have Putin and Lavrov planted one hell of a check-mate on the Western axis of evil spear-headed by Israel? The Russians have stated 'we're simply doing what you forever claim you're doing! You've had no success destroying ISIS. We'll have a go. We came on the request of President Assad which is more than you can say. How could we refuse? If we did you'd accuse us of not being serious about fighting the war on terror. And frankly, even without your help, we'll have little problem locating ISIS strongholds. If you, for whatever reason are unable to do the job, WE CAN AND WE DAMN WELL WILL!' Snookered!
