- HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH JOINS PROPAGANDA, IDF "ASSAD STAYS"
- The Israeli headlines on September 18, 2013, were unbelievable:
"UN Report Links Assad's Elite Units with Chemical Weapons
- Even Israel didn't dare to use the obvious lie "fired."
Even "linked" was too strong considering what the newspaper
insolently dared to call "evidence."
- Within the article, a map prepared by Human Rights Watch
was featured. Most of the article analyzed the map in a desperate
attempt to justify its dramatic title. It justified something
different. Here is the map, downgraded almost below readability
except for the HRW logo.
Trying to give credibility to the latest propaganda hoax, the
HRW served Israel well. Yet, it was an immediate reminder that
HRW and Amnesty International promote the "Relativity Theory
of Human Rights." Not all humans have human rights, not
all governments are requested to respect human rights.+ Bolivia
can violate people, Syria cannot. "Special sugar" gives
immunity, Syrian olives don't.++ Heil Einstein!
- UN and AP sources agree that the Syrian mercenaries were
those who used chemical weapons.*
- In order to fabricate the new case against Syria, Israel
emphasizes that both WRH and the New York Times have achieved
the same conclusions. They claim to have reconstructed backwards
the flight of the chemical missiles used last month.
- The backtrack allegedly leads to areas near the 104th Brigade
of the Republican Guard near Damascus.
- That is it. This is the entire argument. Not even one of
the involved parties (HRW, NYT, Israeli intelligence) had the
decency to mention that these mobile missiles could have been
moved to such a location in order to incriminate the innocent.
This overlook identifies the effort as cheap propaganda. Continued:
- SHIN BETH: NETANYAHU IN THE CROSS HAIRS
- Jewish Terror in Israel
- One of the most frightening moments in Gershon Salomon's
life came during the trial of Yigal Amir, the alleged murderer
of Prime Minister Rabin.
- Avishai Raviv+ was disclosed in Court as the agitating agent
that pushed Amir to murder, he was formally code-named Agent
Champagne. Soon afterwards, pictures of Avishai Raviv filled
the Hebrew media.
- In one of them, the Shin Beth++ agent is seen walking behind
Gershon Salomon, his hand on Salomon's shoulder. The other hand
of the agitator was on Itamar Ben Gvir's shoulder.* It was an
entrapment picture by the Shin Beth, which likes to work in a
fashion known as "a friend brings a friend."
Head of Ne'emanei Har Habayt
The Voice of the Temple Mount Faithful
- Years later, a man named Hen ben Eliyahu published an account
that he entitled "Champagne and I," in which he describes
how a casual encounter between he, Gershon Salomon, and agent
Avishai Raviv resulted in five years of Shin Beth harassment.
Nothing was ever proven in Court against the two.
- Despite being a peaceful man engaged exclusively in political
activity, Salomon is a hot target of the Shin Beth. He heads
the Temple Mount Faithful movement since its foundation in 1967.
Their main target is the construction of the Third Temple. In
1990, they declared their will to place the Temple's angular
stone, 17 Palestinians were killed and over 100 others injured
by Israeli Border Police in the subsequent riots. Since then,
Salomon and his followers are not allowed to visit the site.
Their protests are regularly reported by the Hebrew media.
- His movement was related also to another one, which was disbanded
since then. Gush Emunim (Block of Believers) was a right-wing
organization which started the West Bank settlements in 1974.
They were closely related to the Jewish Agency and with National
Religious Party (NRP, the predecessor of The Jewish Home, key
partner of Netanyahu's current coalition). [...]
- This was seen as an earthquake in Israel's legal system,
which had been publicly shown to conduct a political witch-hunting.
The reason was Olmert's successful negotiations with the Palestinians.
When he was on the verge of signing an agreement, he became the
third Prime Minister to be violently deposed by the Shin Beth

attempts to sign a permanent agreement with Palestine, he is

- 'A FAMILY REUNION': ISRAEL WELCOMES ETHIOPIAN JEWS
By Tzippe Barrow - CBN News Jerusalem - August 30, 2013 - BEN
GURION AIRPORT -- Two planeloads carrying 450 Ethiopian immigrants
stepped onto the tarmac at Ben Gurion's Terminal 1 Wednesday
to a welcome as warm as the Tel Aviv afternoon on which they
- On hand to welcome the new arrivals were several hundred
Ethiopian Israelis, many waiting to embrace family members, joined
by government ministers, members of Knesset and heads of agencies
that have sponsored and facilitated the Falash Mura's aliyah.
- "Out of all the Jews being ingathered from the four
corners of the world, it's my belief that Ethiopian Jewry is
the happiest and most grateful," Rabbi Ari Abromowitz, director
of Friends of Israel at Keren Hayesod, one of the primary organizations
responsible for this historic operation, told CBN News.
- "I believe it is because they realize that Israel is
the only country in the history of the world to proactively bring
in blacks, not to be slaves, but to be brothers. And that is
exactly what they are -- brothers. And this is a family reunion."
Those Left Behind
- The group represents the final leg of Operation Dove's Wings,
initiated in 2010 to bring the remaining Falash Mura to Israel.
Wednesday's arrivals brought the total for this operation to
7,500, but nearly 500 already on the government's listing --
some with family members in Israel -- were left behind.
- That number falls short of an estimated 12,000 Falash Mura,
most living in the city of Gondar in northern Ethiopia, whose
eligibility for immigration was not approved by Israel's Interior
- While the celebration was going on at the airport, several
hundred Ethiopian Israelis demonstrated in front of Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu's Jerusalem residence, protesting those who
were excluded as well as the closure of the Jewish Agency's synagogue
and school in Gondar. Continued:

Obama badly bungled the Syrian fiasco with Russia, wait to see
how he will sell out Israel over Iran's nuclear facilities!
- After 10 full years of Western leaders warning the world
that Iran "is close" to developing her own nuclear
weapons, Barack Obama is going to abruptly reverse course. Israel
will scream that she has been sold out.]
- By Pepe Escobar Middle East Sep 19, '13 - Asia Times - The
stage is set. By now it's established Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah
Khamenei has given full authority to the new administration of
President Hassan Rouhani to talk directly to Washington about
Iran's nuclear program.
- This happened only a few days after US President Barack Obama
leaked that letters had been exchanged between himself and Rouhani.
- Rouhani's empowerment was first confirmed later last week
by extremely credible former nuclear negotiator ambassador Seyed
Hossein Mousavian in this op-ed published in Japan. Mousavian
was Rouhani's deputy in Iran's Supreme National Security Council
(SNSC) from 1997 to 2005. Then Rouhani himself expanded on it
this Wednesday in an interview with NBC.
- It's crucial to consider the Supreme Leader's exact position.
This past Tuesday, he addressed the elite of the Islamic Revolutionary
Guards Corps (IRGC) in Tehran.  The key quote: "We don't
accept nuclear weapons, not for the sake of the US or others,
but because of our beliefs, and when we say that no one should
have nuclear weapons, certainly we are not after them either."
- Khamenei fully endorsed Rouhani's diplomatic offensive, emphasizing
- not cryptically - two concepts: "heroic flexibility",
as in a wrestler sometimes giving way for tactical reasons but
never losing sight of the rival; and "champion's leniency"
- which happens to be the subtitle of a book Khamenei himself
translated from Arabic about how the second Shi'ite imam, Hasan
ibn Ali, managed to prevent a war in the 7th century by showing
flexibility towards his enemy.
- Does that mean that a historic meeting between Obama and
Rouhani next Tuesday on the sidelines of the annual UN General
Assembly in New York is all but certain? No. Predictably, the
White House has already exercised plausible deniability - as
in Obama "not expected to meet" Rouhani.
- What the process implies though, is that Washington and Tehran
should be talking, sooner or later, at the highest level.
- Watch the spoilers
Crucially, Khamenei also told the IRGC, "It is not necessary
for the guards to have activities in the political field."
This implies they are out of the new nuclear negotiations, in
a further confirmation of how the nuclear dossier has been transferred
to the Foreign Ministry. Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad
Zarif is the man in charge. He will be traveling to New York
with Rouhani. Here is an excellent insight into his frame of
mind. As for former foreign minister Ali Akbar Salehi, now appointed
by Rouhani as the head of Iran's atomic energy agency, he told
the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna that it was
time to "end the so-called nuclear file".
- The whole process, now in dizzying speed, is a radical departure
from the Ahmadinejad years, when the IRGC was politicized to
the extreme. One day before Khamenei's speech, Rouhani himself
asked the IRGC to "stay above and beyond political currents".

By M K Bhadrakumar - Asia Times - September 16, 2013 - It was

at his weakest. The US president said it in a flat tone - almost
casually - towards the end of his interview focused on Syria
with George Stephanopoulos of ABC news, which was telecast on

STEPHANOPOULOS: "What do you think Iran makes of all this?"

"Maybe all options aren't on the table, you're not willing
to use force?"
OBAMA: "No, I think - I think the Iranians, who we communicate
with - in - indirect ways - "

new president [Hassan Rouhani]?"
OBAMA: "I have. And - and he's reached out to me. We haven't
spoken - directly. But - "
STEPHANOPOULOS: "Letters." OBAMA: "Yeah. "
- The Middle Eastern politics and international security have
been thrown into a tizzy.
- Obama's interview was riveted around the issue of Syria's
chemical weapons and the criticism he faced domestically for
his apparent zig-zag.
- Obama asserted that he acted according to a game plan to
employ the Russians to take out Syria's chemical weapons on a
contract job, as it were, which would also have the tangential
gain of opening the door open to serious negotiations for a political
transition in Syria.

- Newton's Bible Codex Finally Deciphered and the Year 2012
- The David Flynn Collection - Book description: A belief that
the ancients held unusual scientific knowledge, of which only
fragments remain today, was held by many great philosophers and
scientists who participated in the "scientific revolution".
Though research by these men led to great discovery, many were
convinced that they were merely scratching the surface of an
immense but lost pristine knowledge (prisca sapientia) somehow
reflected in the architecture and remains of ancient civilizations.
- In "Temple at the Center of Time: Investigations of
Sacred Dimension, Revealed in Prophecy, the Temple of Jerusalem,
and the Ark of the Covenant, from the works of Isaac Newton",
David Flynn uncovered what has been heralded as one of the greatest
discoveries of all time.
- Many books have investigated whether Newton believed that
an original pure knowledge existed. Some conclude that he did
in fact search for it, but that is the whole of their investigation.
A few have written that Newton actually discovered something
and try to fit his existing research into a prisca sapientia
of their own design, claiming his beliefs fit modern realms of
philosophy or eastern religions, but these speculations are not
upheld by the body of his work. Although Newton had solved riddles
of space, time, gravity, light and invented mathematics to predict
the motion of objects, this was not the priscia sapienta.
Since the time of Newton, no one has revealed the true form and
nature of the original knowledge, or from whence it came
- For the first time in history, "Temple at the Center
of Time" uncovers what Newton was looking for and, in so
doing, proves that pivotal events in history are unquestionably
connected in time and space to Jerusalem.

By AbStevens - Updated Jul. 31, 2013 @ 12:19 pm - In an effort
to help people understand the significance of the temple's past,
as well to inspire hope for its reconstruction, the Jerusalem-based
Temple Institute released a seven-minute video clip that offers
a sneak peak into the new Temple Visitors' Center in Jerusalem.
The non-profit Jewish organization was founded in 1987 and is
located in the Jewish quarter of Jerusalem's Old City. It is
dedicated to rebuilding the Holy Temple of God on Mount Moriah.
"All of our outreach here at the Temple Institute is about
deepening our feeling of connection - not our feeling of loss,
not our feeling of mourning - but our joy with the possibility
of our generation being the generation that is leading to the
rebuilding of the temple," said Rabbi Chaim Richman, head
of the Temple Institute International department in an interview
with Israel National News.
The Temple Institute website says its short-term goal is to "rekindle
the flame" of the temple in people's hearts, and its long-term
goal is to rebuild the temple in "our time."
"We consider the rebuilding of the holy temple to be one
of the positive commandments. Unfortunately because of the whole
long diaspora experience, a lot of ideas crept into our subconsciousness,
and even our consciousness, and there are those that say that
the temple is going to come down from heaven, there are those
that say that only Mashiach (the Messiah) can build the temple,
there are those that say, 'well, the whole idea is just not relevant
at all,'" Richman said.

JERUSALEM (AP) Mortified that the world may be warming
up to Iran, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is taking
an unpopular message to the White House and the United Nations
this week: Don't be fooled by Tehran's new leadership. Netanyahu
contends Iran is using conciliatory gestures as a smoke screen
to conceal an unabated march toward a nuclear bomb. He will deliver
those strong words of caution and fresh intelligence
in an attempt to persuade the U.S. to maintain tough economic
sanctions and not allow the Islamic republic to develop a bomb
or even move closer to becoming a nuclear threshold state.
- With the White House cautiously optimistic about its dialogue
with Iran, Monday's meeting between Netanyahu and President Barack
Obama could be tense. "I will tell the truth in the face
of the sweet talk and the onslaught of smiles," Netanyahu
said before boarding his flight to the U.S. on Sunday. "Telling
the truth today is vital for the security and peace of the world
and, of course, it is vital for the security of the state of
- Israeli leaders watched with great dismay what they derisively
call the "smiley campaign" by Iran's new president,
Hassan Rouhani, last week. Rouhani delivered a conciliatory speech
at the United Nations in which he repeated Iran's official position
that it has no intention of building a nuclear weapon and declared
his readiness for new negotiations with the West. Capping off
the visit, Rouhani and Obama held a 15-minute phone call as the
Iranian leader was traveling to the airport. By the end of the
call, the first conversation between the nation's leaders in
34 years, Obama was suggesting that a breakthrough on the nuclear
issue could portend even deeper ties between the U.S. and Iran.
U.S. and European diplomats hailed a "very significant shift"
in Iran's attitude and tone.
- For Netanyahu, such sentiments are nothing short of a nightmare.
