“Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages.

Occupied Territories – November 20th, 2016

Sunday, November 20th, 2016

Just as a reminder, I always include “Occupied Territories” posts in the “Israel Lobby” category also, because I don’t believe that these disgraceful violations of human rights would be tolerated by the rest of the world were it not for Lobby propaganda, threats and smears. -JG.

Water supply to several Palestinian villages reduced, causing shortages

The Palestine Chronicle – bloodied but unbowed!

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

“…the last six months were particularly interesting. We were recently ‘accused’ by the spokesperson by the Israeli Embassy in London of being the second most popular website among supporters of a certain Palestinian resistance faction, were derided by the Jerusalem Post, and were also subject to hundreds of hackers’ attacks, which forced us to change servers and heighten our security… Amidst all this, the Palestine Chronicle prevailed. In fact, we are stronger than ever before, not only in our determination to carry through for as long as it takes to shed light on the suffering of the Palestinians, but our readership has escalated dramatically.”

Occidental Observer’s “heads up” regarding Theresa May

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

“Anyone wondering about the priorities of Mrs Theresa May should follow her actions from the moment she learned she was to become Britain’s next Prime Minister… Her first act was to sign a pledge committing her to remember the Holocaust and “stand up to hatred and intolerance”. And her second was to spend the evening before her confirmation by the Queen at a private dinner at the home of Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis (1)… Whatever else awaits the British people, they can be under no doubt that their new leader is once again a true Friend of Israel.” (2) – emphasis added, JG.
