Israel aiding, selling Saudi Arabia techniques in Developing Nuclear Weapons

Not long after financing the Pakistani program, the Saudis procured a Chinese ballistic missile system capable of carrying nuclear warheads — warheads that Pakistan had made for the Saudis in 2013 and were awaiting delivery, according to a BBC report published at the time.

Three years later in 2016, former CIA Operations Officer Duane Clarridge confirmed this to FOX News — stating that, through their financing of the Pakistani nuclear program, the Saudis had access to several nuclear bombs.

Clarridge declined to comment on whether those nuclear weapons that had been “sitting ready for delivery” in Pakistan a few years prior had since been delivered to Saudi Arabia.

Israel banks pillage through settlement programs.

Dubbed ‘Bankrolling Abuse,’ the report highlighted the deep involvement of many Israel banks in settlement building, supervising “each stage of construction, holding the buyers’ money in escrow, and taking ownership of the project in case of default by the construction company.

Example of long interview linked below:
Look at the headline on p. A12 of the New York Times of February 27, 2003, just days before George W. Bush invaded Iraq: “Israel Says War on Iraq Would Benefit the Region.”
The Times wrote: “Israelis are now putting…hopes in an American war on Iraq…‘The shock waves emerging from post-Saddam Baghdad could have wide-ranging effects in Tehran, Damascus, and in Ramallah,’ Efraim Halevy, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s national security adviser, said in a speech in Munich this month….Until recently, Mr. Halevy was the chief of the Mossad, Israel’s spy agency. He said, ‘We have hopes of greater stability, greater enhanced confidence from the Persian Gulf to the Atlantic shores of Morocco.’
“Israelis have also suggested that that an Iraq war may salvage their economy…Mark Heller, a senior researcher at the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv University, said the potential engine for change would be the example of a transformed Iraq. ‘It’s at least conceivable that Al Jazeera will end up showing pictures of Iraqis celebrating in the streets, in which case people in other places —like Syria, Saudi Arabia and Egypt —are going to start saying, ‘If Iraqis deserve decent government, so do we.”
This is the utopian stupidity the Israelis sold to the Americans. The Zionists and Talmudists are their own messiah and they will, at any cost in human life and material treasure, seek to “perfect” the world in pursuit of their messianic utopia. Megalomaniacs don’t learn from their mistakes, even when they are catastrophic blunders. Bill Kristol will maintain his trademark smirk no matter the consequences of his own derangement.
The only post-war “celebrating in the streets” the Iraqis did was in 2008 when the intrepid journalist Muntadhar al-Zaidi attended a Baghdad news conference where President Bush was speaking, touting the allegedly marvelous achievements of the U.S. invasion. Zaidi threw his shoes at Bush, shouting, “This is a goodbye kiss from the Iraqi people, dog.
This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq.” Guards tackled Zaidi. He was beaten in jail and sentenced to three years in prison (he served nine months). Zaidi’s insult to Bush made him a celebrated hero in the Arab world.
But is there more to it? Is there an occult side? Here’s the data, draw your own conclusions: the Satanic character of traditional Judaism is not particularly difficult to discern if one adheres to the facts. The principal sacred text of the Kabbalah is the openly Satanic Zohar, which states the following: “Israel must make sacrifices to Satan so that he will leave Israel unmolested” (Zohar 2:33a). Also this: “The evil impulse is good, and without the evil impulse Israel cannot prevail in the world” (Zohar 1:61a).
These are appalling statements in a sacred book revered by the most politically influential rabbinic organization in America, Chabad-Lubavitch. I wish I could say they are anti-Semitic fabrications, but they are not. I can xerox them for you, with their context intact, from the edition of the Zohar published by Stanford University. Palestinians and goyim in general have the right and duty to assess the impact of this demonic Kabbalism in light of events in the Middle East and de facto Zionist control of the White House and Congress.
At first glance, it’s a seemingly lurid, even crackpot question to pose: was the Iraq War one of the Kabbalistic sacrifices which “Israel” must make to Satan, as the Zohar counsels? In the interests of justice and the advancement of knowledge, the question should be asked, and the Zohar should be studied (in the uncensored Pritzker edition from Stanford), in pursuit of an answer. The Zionist-instigated Iraq invasion took the lives of approximately a quarter-million Iraqis and 4,000 American youth.
The fact that America fought the Iraq war for so-called “Israel” is slammed as a “virulent anti-Semitic fabrication.” But we have only to read the Times of February 27, 2003 to learn that the Israelis virtually lusted for the U.S. to invade, while pushing a boatload of nonsense with which to persuade the collective American golem of the prudence of their messianic Neocon mission.

Israel Lobby - money coming back from Israel to Senators and Congressman.

The White House on Thursday challenged a group of senators to admit they are working to push the country toward war with Iran, upping the tension between the administration and Senate advocates of tough new sanctions amid nuclear negotiations.

If certain members of Congress want the United States to take military action, they should be up front with the American public and say so, Bernadette Meehan, National Security Council spokeswoman, said in a statement. Otherwise, it’s not clear why any member of Congress would support a bill that possibly closes the door on diplomacy and makes it more likely that the United States will have to choose between military options or allowing Iran’s nuclear program to proceed.

“I know there has been all this fervent speculation that Tom Cotton and Bill Kristol and Sheldon Adelson were at some private room at the Venetian cooking this up,” said Noah Pollak, the executive director of the Emergency Committee for Israel, referring to Mr. Adelson’s casino in Las Vegas, where many prominent Republicans and Jewish leaders will gather this month.
“But Tom is a smart guy and has a long record of thinking about the Middle East, and he is entrepreneurial. Tom wrote this letter.”
Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, saw his donations from pro-Israel donors soar to about $285,000 in the 2014 election cycle from less than $100,000 in 2008, during his previous election, the analysis by MapLight shows.
Pro-Israel contributions to Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, plummeted to less than $150,000 in 2014, when he was also re-elected, from nearly $300,000 in 2008, according to this count.
Senator Lindsey Graham: “But at the end of the day, the foundation of the U.S.-Israel relationship is bipartisan,” he said. “There is wide and deep Democratic support for the state of Israel.    It’s just sort of getting left out of the story line here.”

Mossad to Trump: Mission Not Accomplished">
Example of long interview linked below:
Furthermore, throughout our conversation I have made reference to Orthodox Judaism without limiting myself to Hasidim.
The “modern Orthodox” as they are known, to distinguish them from Hasidim, are heirs to the zealous Talmudism that pre-existed Hasidism (which arose in the 18th century).
They number in their ranks Jared Kushner, Steven Spielberg, former Senator Joseph Lieberman (D-CT), and tens of thousands of other movers-and-shakers in government, business and media.
The modern Orthodox operate Yeshiva University in New York, which includes the prestigious Cardozo School of Law, whose graduates often become elite government and corporate attorneys and staff powerful non-governmental agencies such as the ADL.

 Chris Hedges speech about Gaza Transcript
The incursion and bombardment of Gaza is not about destroying Hamas. It is not about stopping rocket fire into Israel. It is not about achieving peace.
The Israeli decision to reign death and destruction on Gaza, to use lethal weapons of the modern battle field on a largely defenceless civilian population is the final phase in a decades-long campaign to ethnically cleanse Palestinians.
The assault on Gaza is about creating squalid, lawless, and impoverished ghettos in the West Bank and Gaza where life for Palestinians will be barely sustainable. It is about building a series of ringed Palestinian enclaves where the Israeli military will have the ability to instantly shut off movement, food, medicine and goods to perpetuate the misery.
Privilege and power, especially military power is a dangerous narcotic. Violence destroys those who bare the brunt of its force. But also those who try to use it, to become gods.
Israel uses sophisticated attack jets and navel vessels to bomb densely crowded refugee camps, schools, apartment blocks, mosques and slums. To attack a population that has no air force, no air defence, no navy, no heavy weapons, no artillery units, no mechanized armour, no command that control no army, and calls it a war.
It is not a war. It is murder. Images of dead Palestinian children lined up as if asleep on the floor of the main hospital in Gaza, are a metaphor for the future. Israel will from now on speak to the Palestinians in the language of death.
Those who orchestrate such sieges do not grasp the terrible rage born of long humiliation, indiscriminate violence and abuse. A father or a mother, whose child died because of a lack of vaccines or proper medical care, does not forget. A boy who's ill grandmother died while being detained at an Israeli checkpoint does not forget.
Families who carry the broken bodies of their children to hospital do not forget. All who endure humiliation, abuse and the murder of those they love, do not forget.
This rage becomes a virus within those who eventually stumble out into the daylight. Is it any wonder that seventy-one percent of children interviewed at a school in Gaza recently said they wanted to be a martyr.
The refusal by our political leaders, from Barack Obama to all but five members of congress, for the major media to speak out in defence of the rule of law, and fundamental human rights, exposes out cowardice, and our hypocrisy.
The public debate about the Gaza attack, engages in the absurd pretence that it is Israel, not the Palestinians whose security and dignity is being threatened. This blind defence of Israel is really brutality towards the Palestinians, is a betrayal of the memory of all those killed in other genocides, in other times.
The lesson of the Holocaust is not that Jews are special. It is not that Jews are unique. It is not that Jews are eternal victims. The lesson of the Holocaust is that when you have the capacity to halt genocide, and you do not, no matter who carries out that genocide, or who it is directed against, you are culpable.
And we are very culpable. The F16 fighter jets, the Apache Attack Helicopters, the two hundred and fifty pound smart GBU -39 bomb are all part of the three billion dollar military aid we give to Israel.
Palestinians are being killed tonight with American made weapons.
Perhaps our callous and indifference to human suffering is to be expected. We after all kill woman and children on an even vaster scale in Iraq and Afghanistan.
US Israel Murder
US aid to Israel to surpass $90 billion

 
 
Nine billion dollars in US loan guarantees to Israel
Despite ongoing settlement activity and the continued construction of Apartheid Wall
September 17, 2003
Despite indications earlier in the year that the US may withhold a proportion of its loans to Israel in an effort to compel the Jewish state to adopt policies more compliant with recent peace initiatives, the availability of nine billion dollars in loan guarantees was formally announced yesterday with no mention of any penalties for the state's construction of the appalling apartheid wall.
The guarantees, part of a 10-billion-dollar aid package for Israel, will be made through the US Agency for International Development (USAID), according to a notice published in the Federal Register on Monday.
According to a recent report by the Congressional Research Service U.S. aid to Israel will surpass a cumulative total of $90 billion this year.
Under law, the guarantees may only support activities in areas held by Israel before the 1967 six day war.
As such the US have often threatened to hold back loans as long as settlement construction continues.
Over the summer there was much talk of the US reducing the loan guarantees to Israel for this very reason, however although the guarantees have now been made available US officials say no decision has been made on withholding any portion of the guarantees and that any deductions would not be made on the upcoming first installment of $1.6 billion but perhaps from future installments.
The possibility of America penalizing Israel for its settlement activity has been widely reported yet there is little evidence any such penalties will be enforced.
President George Bush senior did in 1992 succeed in tying a $10 billion loan guarantee to Israel’s restraint on further settlements in the occupied territories, stalling the loan for a short time only to bequeath even more money at a later date.
Under the law authorizing the loan guarantees, the Bush administration may withhold portions of the money based on Israel's performance in Middle East peace efforts, what many are asking therefore is whether the US will choose to deduct further sums because of the construction of the Israeli apartheid wall which in some places cuts deep into the 1967 Palestinian territories.
Considering President Bush’s remarks of the problems the wall will cause for the latest peace initiative, the “Road Map,” this would seem the perfect opportunity for America to put pressure on Israel to reconsider it’s unwise policy of apartheid, end the illegal occupation of Palestinian Land and pursue a peaceful solution to the currently escalating conflict.

People and The Land airdrops viewers into the universe of an occupied people, unreeling images of a new form of apartheid based on ethnicity.
Challenging U.S. foreign policy and the conventions of the documentary form itself, People and The Land examines the concrete realities of Israel's conduct in the West Bank and Gaza.
The level of U.S. support for that conduct through foreign aid, and the human cost of that aid in Palestine and the U.S.

Israel tightens grip on Jordan Valley
By Richard Galpin
BBC News, Jerusalem
Farm in the Jordan valley.

The Jordan Valley is a fertile area of the West Bank.
Farm in the Jordan valley
The Jordan Valley is a fertile area of the West Bank
In a recent report the Israeli human rights organisation B'Tselem accused the Israeli government of effectively annexing the Jordan Valley — a large strip of land which makes up at least a quarter of the occupied West Bank.
UN officials have also told the BBC they are concerned that the region is gradually being cut off by restrictions imposed on the Palestinian population by the Israeli security forces.
Our jeep plunges down a steep, winding road from the hills surrounding Jerusalem towards the Jordan Valley.
It is a descent of more than 1000 metres through deep gorges to the lowest point on the planet.
Israel occupied the West Bank in the 1967 war.
Palestinians hope that the whole of the West Bank and East Jerusalem will be returned to them as part of any peace deal creating a viable independent state which would also include the Gaza Strip.
map of Jordan Valley
But before we can enter the valley we have first to get through an Israeli military checkpoint — one of seven controlling access to and from the region.
The soldier on duty quite openly tells us about the restrictions now being imposed on the Palestinians when we ask him whom he allows through.
"Only the ones who live nearby, all those villages nearby," he says.
"But the ones who do not live here but in Ramallah or Bethlehem, they cannot pass through here."
'Special permits'
This backs up the findings of the human rights organisation B'Tselem that only Palestinians listed as residents of the Jordan Valley can enter the area.
Everyone else must have a special permit even though it is part of the West Bank.
In another telling answer, the soldier describes Palestinian labourers entering the Jordan Valley to work on Israeli settlements as "coming to work in Israel... these settlements are not in the West Bank".
For him the Israeli annexation has already happened.

The Palestinians cannot use the Jordan Valley... It's one third of their small, poor homeland and it is closed in their faces
Najib Abu Rokaya
B'Tselem
"The Palestinians cannot use the Jordan Valley," says Najib Abu Rokaya, B'Tselem's fieldwork co-ordinator.
"It's one third of their small, poor homeland and it is closed in their faces."
'Illegal resident'
We drive on into the Jordan Valley and head north along the main highway until we reach a small Palestinian village.
We're invited to drink tea outside with some of the local people and soon one man called Faris starts telling his story.
He owns land and a house in the village but his identity card shows that originally he comes from a town just outside the Jordan Valley.
He says the Israeli security forces have therefore been throwing him out as an illegal resident.
"The soldiers arrested me and handcuffed me until my brother came.   Then they transferred me to the checkpoint and left me there.   It's happened to me five or six times."
Palestinian farmers protest
A Palestinian farmer protests against Israeli travel restrictions
"They've been checking the IDs of people here for the last two years."
Later we walk over to a house on a hill overlooking the village.
Inside lying on a mattress on the concrete floor lies a heavily-pregnant woman, surrounded by her three children.
She's sick.   But like Faris her identity card shows that originally she's from another part of the West Bank .   "I'm afraid to go out," she says, "I've been sick for two months and I haven't even gone to the doctor."
"I am afraid that I could meet an army patrol and they could ask for my ID."
She's terrified she would then be forced to leave the valley and be separated from her family.
Fertile area
The Jordan Valley is a fertile part of the West Bank and fruit, vegetables and flowers are all grown here.
But the restrictions on movement mean Palestinian farmers are now having problems selling their produce.
A farmer called Jamal tells us traders from the West Bank can no longer enter the region and if he sends his produce by truck to the market in Jenin it often arrives in bad condition because of delays at the checkpoints.
By holding the Jordan valley, Israel can make sure that Zarqawi in the East doesn't join forces with Hamas in the West
Dore Gold
Former Israeli government advisor
Back in Jerusalem at the end of our journey, an Israeli military spokesman agrees to speak to us.
He flatly denies any new restrictions have been imposed on the Palestinians recently.
He says the only restrictions came into force five years ago and apply to Palestinians wanting to use the main north-south highway in the Jordan Valley, Route 90.   He adds that the checks were imposed because of the access the highway would give to would-be suicide bombers.
But United Nations sources agree with B'Tselem about what is happening in the region.
"It is part of [Israel] establishing its borders," says one UN official, "and setting facts on the ground before a peace agreement is reached with the Palestinians."
'Eastern border'
The acting Israeli Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, recently stated that the Jordan Valley would not be handed back to the Palestinians and instead would form part of Israel's eastern border with the Arab world.
The Israelis have always viewed it as vital for the defence of the country.
Without it they believe Israel would be extremely vulnerable and not just to invasion by Arab countries.
"The great danger to Israel would be if al-Qaeda elements that are today in Iraq and are already penetrating Jordan and Syria, would be able to marry up with a Hamas regime in the West Bank," says former Israeli government adviser, Dore Gold.
"By holding the Jordan valley, Israel can make sure that Zarqawi in the East doesn't join forces with Hamas in the West."
Apart from the Jordan Valley, the Israeli government also recently announced that it wanted to keep all the major settlement blocks in the West Bank.
According to the human rights organisation B'Tselem, that would mean in total around 40% of the West Bank would remain in Israeli hands.

The life and death of Kamala Sawalha
A student leaves her house every night, leaving her two young children at home, spends the next several hours traveling by taxi and on foot to get to the university in the neighboring town — just 15 minutes away.
Kamala wanted very badly to study — otherwise, it would be hard to understand the sacrifice she made for it.
To get up before dawn every morning, to leave the babies with their grandmother, to spend hours on the road in the heat and cold, even when pregnant, in order to get to the campus on time; to risk being shot or subjected to endless humiliations around every turn, and then to travel the whole way back — in a taxi where possible and on foot where necessary....
“Suddenly we were facing the soldiers,” he recounts.  The jeep was parked on the left side of the road and its right door was open.  Kamala let out a long scream.  It was the last sound she would ever make.
At 11:30 A.M., they buried Kamala Sawalha in the town cemetery.
Punching an arab in the face.
The father went through it and now the son is going through it and no one talks about it around the dinner table.
Furer is certain that what happened to him is not at all unique. 
Here he was — a creative, sensitive graduate of the Thelma Yellin High School of the Arts, who became an animal at the checkpoint, a violent sadist who beat up Palestinians because they didn’t show him the proper courtesy, who shot out tires of cars because their owners were playing the radio too loud, who abused a retarded teenage boy lying handcuffed on the floor of the Jeep, just because he had to take his anger out somehow.
