“The combination of the Steele Dossier and the Trump Jr. trap refutes the narrative that Russia was helping the Trump campaign”

Russia Didn’t Interfere In U.S. Election To Help Trump, But To Destabilize America
by Paul Roderick Gregory
July 18, 2017

…We have reached the stage I warned about three months back. Vladimir Putin is now in a position to destroy the Trump presidency and wreak untold havoc on the American political system. His disinformation specialists can make up virtually any story they wish of Trump’s cooperation with Russia, and the anti-Trump media will accept it as gospel truth. Putin will get his wish of a weakened and embattled American president and an American political system in paralysis. He will continue to feed the story to make sure no resolution is possible. The ironical outcome is that the real collusion may be between the enemies of Trump making an alliance with Putin to weaken their own country, all in order to overturn an election outcome they despise.

BDS Fail “Schumer and Gillibrand aren’t New York’s first Democratic politicians who’ve embraced #TheResistance while simultaneously attacking #BDS activists” [VIDEO]

Schumer, Gillibrand Co-Sponsor Senate Bill That Would Make Boycotting Israel A Felony
by David Colon
July 19, 2017

Both of New York’s Senators have signed on to a bill that would criminalize any attempt by Americans to boycott Israel, according to a new report. According to The Intercept, Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand are among 43 U.S. Senators who have co-sponsored the Anti-Israel Boycott Act, a bill that the ACLU wote is “antithetical to free speech protections enshrined in the First Amendment” in a letter to lawmakers urging them to oppose the bill. The Senate bill appears to target the Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement that seeks to pressure Israel to end its occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip through economic isolation. READ MORE

Trump State Department blames #Israel for #PalestinianTerror

State Dept. Blames Israel for Terrorism, Claims Palestinians Rarely Incite Attacks
by Adam Kredo
July 20, 2017

The State Department is facing harsh criticism for claiming in an official report that Israel is to blame for terrorism attacks committed by Palestinians and accusing the Jewish state of being largely responsible for an impasse in peace negotiations, according to a leading member of Congress who is calling on the State Department to correct its “inaccurate and harmful” characterization of Israel…Rep. Peter Roskam (R. Ill.), co-chair of the House Republican Israel Caucus, criticized the latest report in a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and called on the administration to immediately amend it to portray Palestinian terror attacks as a primary reason for the impasse in peace talks. READ MORE

“Former NSC head says #Iran nuke deal source of problems Iran is causing in region, and deal is “worse than we imagined”

‘Israel may need to take out Iranian bases in Syria’
by Herb Keinon
July 17, 2017

Israel may need to take military action to prevent Iran or Hezbollah from setting up permanent bases in Syria, former National Security Council head Yaakov Amidror said on Monday. Amidror’s comments come a day after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told journalists in Paris that Israel was opposed to the Syrian cease-fire brokered recently by the US and Syria because it perpetuates Iran’s military presence in the the country. If Israel’s interests are not taken into account by those determining what the future arrangements will be in Syria – the Americans, Russians or others – “that might lead the IDF to intervene and destroy every attempt to build [permanent Iranian] infrastructure in Syria,” he said.

“And I’m thinking: no I’m not worried about terrorists. Not at all. Not with all these big, handsome, intelligent, trained Jewish kids all around me”

The Girl with the Rucksack
July 17, 2017

And I thought about where each of [these young soldiers] had come from. Their grandparents – no matter their background – had run away from places all over the world. If they were from Arab lands, they’d been persecuted and robbed of all their property before making their way to Israel. If they were from Europe, they were probably the only member of their entire family to survive. And here was the third generation: strong, fearless, armed. These kids, I thought, have made it possible to live in a country where if you wear a skullcap or a Jewish star, you don’t have to worry about being beaten up or murderedREAD MORE

#BDS hurts me: “I am a Muslim Arab woman. I am a singer”

I’m an Arab. Here’s why I’ll be performing with Radiohead in Israel
by Nasreen Qadri
July 18, 2017

Much has been said and written ahead of Radiohead’s concert in Tel Aviv this week. The successful British rock band has been under pressure to cancel its visit to Israel, in another attempt to boycott the only democracy in the Middle East.  Among the critics was director Ken Loach, who called on the band not to perform in Israel and “whitewash the country’s human rights violations.” But such an approach is counter-productive and only hurting those who wish to promote peace and tolerance in a troubled region.
