israel denies the obvious yet again

israel has just exceeded the world's record for greatest number of denials per capita.
A British newspaper reported Sunday that Israel has drafted plans to strike as many as three targets in Iran with low-yield nuclear weapons, aiming to halt Tehran's uranium enrichment program. The Israeli Foreign Ministry denied the report.

Citing multiple unidentified Israeli military sources, The Sunday Times said the proposals involved using so-called "bunker-buster" nuclear weapons to attack nuclear facilities at three sites south of the Iranian capital.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's office said it would not respond to the claim. "We don't respond to publications in the Sunday Times," said Miri Eisin, Olmert's spokeswoman.

Israeli Minister of Strategic Threats Avigdor Lieberman also declined to comment on the report.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev denied the report and said that "the focus of the Israeli activity today is to give full support to diplomatic actions" and the implementation of a U.N. Security Council resolution imposing sanctions on Iran for refusing to halt enrichment.

I suppose some won't see it as much of an achievement, since the record that they broke was their own.

Reality Check about Israeli 'denials'

Rogue State of Israel Threatens Tactical Nuke Strikes on Iran

Dr. Zunes is an assistant professor in the Department of Politics at the University of San Francisco

Since 1992, the U.S. has offered Israel an additional $2 billion annually in loan guarantees. Congressional researchers have disclosed that between 1974 and 1989, $16.4 billion in U.S.

military loans were converted to grants and that this was the understanding from the beginning. Indeed, all past U.S. loans to Israel have eventually been forgiven by Congress, which has undoubtedly helped Israel's often-touted claim that they have never defaulted on a U.S. government loan. U.S. policy since 1984 has been that economic assistance to Israel must equal or exceed Israel's annual debt repayment to the United States.

Unlike other countries, which receive aid in quarterly installments, aid to Israel since 1982 has been given in a lump sum at the beginning of the fiscal year, leaving the U.S. government to borrow from future revenues. Israel even lends some of this money back through U.S. treasury bills and collects the additional interest.

In addition, there is the more than $1.5 billion in private U.S. funds that go to Israel annually in the form of $1 billion in private tax-deductible donations and $500 million in Israeli bonds. The ability of Americans to make what amounts to tax-deductible contributions to a foreign government, made possible through a number of Jewish charities, does not exist with any other country. Nor do these figures include short- and long-term commercial loans from U.S. banks, which have been as high as $1 billion annually in recent years.

Total U.S. aid to Israel is approximately one-third of the American foreign-aid budget, even though Israel comprises just .001 percent of the world's population and already has one of the world's higher per capita incomes.

Indeed, Israel's GNP is higher than the combined GNP of Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, the West Bank and Gaza. With a per capita income of about $14,000, Israel ranks as the sixteenth wealthiest country in the world; Israelis enjoy a higher per capita income than oil-rich Saudi Arabia and are only slightly less well-off than most Western European countries.

AID does not term economic aid to Israel as development assistance, but instead uses the term "economic support funding." Given Israel's relative prosperity, U.S. aid to Israel is becoming increasingly controversial.

In 1994, Yossi Beilen, deputy foreign minister of Israel and a Knesset member, told the Women's International Zionist organization, "If our economic situation is better than in many of your countries, how can we go on asking for your charity?"

U.S. Aid to Israel: What U.S. Taxpayer Should Know
by Tom Malthaner

This morning as I was walking
down Shuhada Street in Hebron,
I saw graffiti marking
the newly painted storefronts
and awnings.
Although three months
past schedule and 100 percent
over budget, the renovation
of Shuhada Street was
finally completed this week.
The project manager said the reason for the delay
and cost overruns was the
sabotage of the project by
the Israeli settlers of the
Beit Hadassah settlement
complex in Hebron.

They broke the
street lights,
stoned project workers,
shot out the windows
of bulldozers and other
heavy equipment with pellet
guns, broke paving stones
before they were laid and
now have defaced again
the homes and shops
of Palestinians with graffiti.

The settlers did not
want Shuhada St. opened
to Palestinian traffic
as was agreed to under Oslo 2. This renovation project
is paid for by USAID funds
and it makes me angry that my
tax dollars have paid
for improvements that have
been destroyed by the settlers.

Most Americans are not aware how much of their tax revenue
our government sends to Israel.

For the fiscal year ending in September 30, 1997, the U.S.
has given Israel $6.72 billion: $6.194 billion falls
under Israel's foreign
aid allotment and
$526 million comes from
agencies such as the
Department of Commerce,
the U.S. Information Agency
and the Pentagon.

The $6.72 billion figure
does not include
loan guarantees and
annual compound interest
totalling $3.122 billion
the U.S. pays on money
borrowed to give to Israel.

It does not include
the cost to U.S. taxpayers
of IRS tax exemptions that
donors can claim when
they donate money to
Israeli charities.

(Donors claim approximately
$1 billion in
Federal tax deductions

This ultimately costs
other U.S. tax payers
$280 million to $390 million.)

When grant, loans, interest
and tax deductions are
added together for the
fiscal year ending in
September 30, 1997, our
special relationship
with Israel cost U.S.
taxpayers over $10 billion.

At Tuesday, January 09, 2007, Blogger Rhiannon said...

Since 1949 the U.S. has given Israel a total of $83.205 billion. The interest costs borne by U.S. tax payers on behalf of Israel are $49.937 billion, thus making the total amount of aid given to Israel since 1949 $133.132 billion.

This may mean that U.S. government has given more federal aid to the average Israeli citizen in a given year than it has given to the average American citizen.
I am angry when I see Israeli settlers from Hebron destroy improvements made to Shuhada Street with my tax money.

Also, it angers me that my government is giving over $10 billion to a country that is more prosperous than most of the other countries in the world and uses much of its money for strengthening its military and the oppression of the Palestinian people.

I guess the Israelis should just sit back and relax. Iran would never attack them, even though Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly said that Israel will be wiped off the map.

What would you do in that situation?

Check out Renegade's BS

Renegade lives in an unenlightened state of reality and in that darkness obviously prefers to build White Man's Fires to protect himself from the boogeyman.

Hey Renegade... have you ever stopped to think? No wait, there's more to the question.

Hey Renegade... have you ever stopped to think that maybe Iraq and Iran and every other Middle Eastern country and culture is frightened by Israel's bellicose, over-armed posture and perhaps they are just saying what they feel needs to be said in order to prevent an Israeli steamrolling of their culture?

No that couldn't be true, could it Renegade? Not where you come from, the land of the ignorant-and-frightened, the land of the bellicose Zionist, the land of amorality's apology.

An Israeli student finishes
high school without
ever hearing the name
“Genrikh Yagoda,”
the greatest Zionist Jewish murderer
of the 20th Century,
the GPU’s deputy commander
and the founder and
commander of the NKVD.
Yagoda diligently
implemented Stalin’s collectivization orders
and is responsible for the
deaths of at least 10 million people.

His Zionist
Jewish deputies
established and managed
the Gulag system.
After Stalin no longer
viewed him favorably,
Yagoda was demoted and
executed, and was replaced
as chief hangman in 1936 by Yezhov, the “bloodthirsty dwarf.”

Yezhov was not Jewish
but was blessed with an
active Zionist Jewish wife.
In his Book...
“Stalin: Court of the Red Star”,
Jewish historian
Sebag Montefiore writes
that during the darkest period
of terror, when the
Communist killing machine
worked in full force,
Stalin was surrounded
by beautiful, young
Zionist-Jewish women.

Stalin’s close associates
and loyalists included
members of the
Central Committee and
Politburo Lazar Kaganovich.
Montefiore characterizes him
as the “first Stalinist”
and adds that those
starving to death in Ukraine,
an unparalleled tragedy
in the history
of human kind
aside from the Nazi horrors
and Mao’s terror in China,
did not move Kaganovich.

Many Jews sold their soul
to the devil of the
Communist revolution
and have blood on
their hands for eternity.

A mention of just one more:
Leonid Reichman,
head of the NKVD’s
special department and
the organization’s
chief interrogator,
who was a particularly
cruel sadist.

In 1934, according to
published statistics,
38.5 percent of those
holding the most senior posts
in the Soviet security
apparatuses were
of Jewish origin, and for
the zionist cause.

They too, of course,
were gradually eliminated
in the next purges.

In a fascinating lecture
at a Tel Aviv
University convention,
Dr. Halfin described
the waves of soviet terror
as a “carnival of mass murder,”
“fantasy of purges”, and “essianism of evil.”

Turns out that Jews too,
when they become captivated
by messianic ideology,
can become great murderers,
among the greatest known
by modern history.

The Zionist Jews
active in official
communist terror apparatuses
(In the Soviet Union and abroad)
and who at times led them,
did not do this,
obviously, as Jews, but rather,
as Stalinists, communists, and “Soviet people.”

Therefore, we find it
easy to ignore their origin and “play dumb”:
What do we have to do
with them?
But let’s not forget them.

My own view is different.
I find it unacceptable
that a person will be
considered a member
of the Jewish people
when he does great things,
but not considered
part of our people
when he does amazingly
despicable things.

Even if we deny it,
we cannot escape
the Jewishness
of “our hangmen,”
who served the Red Terror
with loyalty and dedication
from its establishment.
After all........
others will always
remind us of their origin.

Why do you label all Arabs and Muslims as terrorists? Why are israeli children taught to hate Arabs and to injure and murder Arabs, and why are israeli children taught that this is okay?

Unfortunately, the world doesn't know the truth about the sordid reality of Israel and its military state. Actually israel is a true dictatorship on the foundation of being an absolute zionist military state. That's actually the truth and the reality.

Let's look at Lebanon 2006, July and August. This is just one speck of time where Lebanese Muslims and Christians suffered at the brutal claws of the israeli terrorist military.

How many children were murdered so conveniently, so viciously by the IDF, a military that is like no other in this whole world - they are hardly ever accountable for their crimes against humanity.

They killed over 800 Lebanese children, not to mentions the deaths afterward from the cluster bombs that israel left behind before they pulled out of Lebanon.

How many israeli children died? A few Falashas and a few Arab israelis - maybe 5 or 6. Did israel even care?

Here's the typical HATRED that zionist scum like you speak:

"As for millions of "innocent lebonese" being injured in the war...millions is a lie...and if it were true..it wasnt enough.......I really hope Bush and everyone else with nuclear capabitles utilzes it and bombs the hell out of the shithole called the middle east...Oh except for the oilfields.....which bush should have taken from iraq in the first place....Oh and btw im not israeliI wish i were because you terrorist have a lot to fear..."

You're not an israeli? You don't have to be. You're a sociopathic zionist creep. A loser who doesn't care about the Earth, God, or people.

You wish you were an israeli because us "terrorists" as you say have a lot to fear...?

You got that backwards, dear chum. You are the terrorist and your whole world is based on fear, and you are to be pitied as well as to be reviled as you are of the most repulsive kind of "human" we have on this earth.

Except for the oilfields?

Hey, we are all well aware how you hungrily await to get your greedy little claws on the oil, not to mention, water, electricity, and gas - courtesy of Turkey........

at the expense of blood of the children and their parents, the innocent populations of Lebanon, Iraq, Palestine and Afghanistan......

Yeah, you go drown in your oil, you morbid little leach. It goes good with the Arab blood you gorge on.

Bon Appetit.

Three times neighboring Arab states tried to destroy Israel.

Each time Israel defeated the opposing armies and then ceded the captured territories without committing genocide.

Would Muslims do the same if they captured Israel?

You are a lying little weasel. You speak for the likes of you - so-called "jews" and sickos such as the kreestian zionists.

1. Neighboring Arab countries never tried to destroy israel.

2. There was nothing for israel to defeat and yet israel has begun a slow-raging genocide - holocaust against Arabs - Iraqis, Lebanese, Palestinians - these SEMETIC people never touched a hair on their jewish heads in America, Russia, Poland and , especially in Germany. Arabs did nothing to these so-called, self-styled "israelites" [sic].

3. Muslims have no intentions of capturing israel. Simply you are a sick little pea-brain whose manic-filled expression is plastered to the TV screen as you watch your great gods wolf blitzer, bernard lewis, dennis prager, alan dershowitz, bumhead netanyahu, tzvi lipni, and miri eisin. Of course there are more demonic entities but this list will suffice for now.

israel does not defeat anyone. Simply, the great coward israel murders women and children and defenseless men and the elderly.

And boy? That's as good as it gets.


America....your children's blood for the blood of the children of the Middle East.

Steve's contributed extracts from the Hamas Charter sound a lot like any page from the many reams of hatefilled zionist bile from any of Israel's leaders since 1948 and none of which am I prepared to dignify by repeating to the well informed participants of this blog.

I tire of the canard that Israel's political persona is somehow the same or similar to the American political traditions embodied in our Constitution.

From the very first statement of that document, where it is acknowledged that all men were created equal, and every word thereafter, up to and including it's very last sentence, that document stands in proud contradiction to everything which the state of Israel represents.

Every dollar extracted from the revenues of our taxpayers and spent on that scurrilous state is a dollar too many.
