    Israel plans largest WB settlement expansion in 30 years ; Surprising Obama response

    By below formula, how much Israeli land inside 67 borders Palestinians can claim for the 2000 plus Palestinian children, teens, women, men Israel killed in last few weeks in the Israel-Gaza "war"?
    And what led Obama to go from "does not want to see even one cement mixer in the West Bank" stance in 2009 to remaining completely quiet/giving more aid/weapons to Israel in 2014 when the largest Israeli settlement expansion in 30 years is announced? What changed between 2009 and 2014? Did the infamous Andrew Adler editorial in 2012 play a role in such strikingly different reactions?


    U.S.-Israeli relationship takes new direction
    By Jeffrey Heller
    JERUSALEM Tue Jun 2, 2009
    "The president doesn't want to see even one cement mixer in the West Bank," an Israeli political source, briefed by Netanyahu aides, quoted U.S. Middle East envoy George Mitchell telling an Israeli delegation that met him in London last week.
    Possible scenarios for twisting Netanyahu's arm could range from U.S. inaction at the United Nations in thwarting resolutions critical of Israel to choking off some military supplies, political sources and commentators said.
    "Delaying the shipment of spares for the Apaches can ground the air force," political columnist Ben Caspit wrote in Maariv, referring to Israel's U.S.-made attack helicopters.
    "The replenishment of ammunition and weapons supplies in the event of another expected conflagration in the Gaza Strip or Lebanon is a matter of American goodwill," Caspit said.
    Few expect Washington ever to go as far as to hurt Israel's defences, but it does have other diplomatic pressure points.


    Publisher of the ‘Atlanta Jewish Times’ suggests Mossad should assassinate Obama
    Adam Horowitz on January 20, 2012
    John Cook reports at Gawker:
    Andrew Adler, the owner and publisher of the Atlanta Jewish Times, a weekly newspaper serving Atlanta’s Jewish community, devoted his January 13, 2012 column to the thorny problem of the U.S. and Israel’s diverging views on the threat posed by Iran. Basically Israel has three options, he wrote: Strike Hezbollah and Hamas, strike Iran, or “order a hit” on Barack Obama. Either way, problem solved!
    Here’s how Adler laid out “option three” in his list of scenarios facing Israeli president Benjamin Netanyahu (the column, which was forwarded to us by a tipster, isn’t online, but you can read a copy here):

    Three, give the go-ahead for U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place, and forcefully dictate that the United States’ policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies.
    Yes, you read “three” correctly. Order a hit on a president in order to preserve Israel’s existence. Think about it. If I have thought of this Tom Clancy-type scenario, don’t you think that this almost unfathomable idea has been discussed in Israel’s most inner circles?
    Another way of putting “three” in perspective goes something like this: How far would you go to save a nation comprised of seven million lives…Jews, Christians and Arabs alike?
    You have got to believe, like I do, that all options are on the table.


    'Anyone You See, You Shoot': Israeli Soldiers Recall the 2014 Gaza War
    The Nation.‎
    Estimates of the Protective Edge casualty count vary somewhat, but they generally range around 2,100–2,200 Palestinians killed, largely civilians, against 73 Israeli fatalities, 67 of them soldiers. An additional 11,000 Palestinians were wounded during Protective Edge, and almost 500,000 were forced out of their homes.

    Mike Carlton resigns due to intense pressure following SMH article on Gaza war

    Carlton said the decision to suspend him came from Fairfax business and metro publisher
    Sean Aylmer, who overruled Sydney Morning Herald editor-in-chief Darren Goodsir.
    Goodsir wanted to suspend Carlton for four to six weeks after the abusive reports surfaced
    in The Australian.
    “They said they want to suspend me for four to six weeks to “consider”... but I said “don’t
    bother I’m resigning. I hung up on them,” Carlton told the Daily Mail Australia.

    Israel appropriates massive tract of West Bank land
    Move comes in wake of kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens; intention is to build a large settlement, Gvaot, between the Etzion settlement bloc and Jerusalem.
    By Chaim Levinson | Aug. 31, 2014
    The appropriation of 3,799 dunams (988 acres) of West Bank land between the Etzion settlement bloc and Jerusalem was announced on Sunday by the Israel Defense Forces' Civil Administration.
    The appropriation was decided on by the cabinet last week as a response to the kidnapping and killing of three Jewish teens by Hamas militants in the area in June, according to the administration's announcement.
    Anti-settlement group Peace Now said it was the largest land appropriation in 30 years.
    The intention of appropriating the land is to create territorial continuity between the Green Line and settlements of Beitar Illit, Kfar Etzion, and Gvaot.
    The appropriated land belongs to five Palestinian villages in the Bethlehem area: Jaba, Surif, Wadi Fukin, Husan and Nahalin.

    For some time, the United States had had an emergency plan to attack Israel, a plan updated just prior to the 1967 war, aimed at preventing Israel from expanding westward, into Sinai, or eastward, into the West Bank.
    In May 1967, one of the U.S. commands was charged with the task of removing the plan from the safe, refreshing it and preparing for an order to go into action.

    The latest came this week, in response to a report from British press that revealed the National Security Agency commonly provides Israel with intelligence data — without first stripping out private and personal information on American citizens. The Guardian in London reported the item, the latest in its coverage of document leaks from Edward Snowden.
    Mr. Woods unleashed his views of the matter — and of Mr. Obama's role in allowing the practice to occur — on Twitter.
    He wrote: "Report: Data on Americans shared with Israel ... Obama: the gift from hell that keeps on giving."

    These are heady days for casino billionaire and megadonor Sheldon Adelson.
    A passionate and hawkish advocate for Israel with close ties to its prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, Adelson was in Jerusalem today for a celebration of the U.S. embassy’s relocation to that city, a longstanding priority for the mogul. Similarly, Adelson had pushed hard for President Donald Trump to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, which happened last week.
    And the day after that announcement, Adelson quietly slipped into the White House for a private meeting with Trump and three top administration officials: Vice President Mike Pence, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and an Adelson favorite, National Security Adviser John Bolton, according to two conservative sources familiar with the previously unreported private event.

    U.S., Britain, Australia won’t support Palestinian bid for statehood at UN

    Palestinian delegation in N.Y. continues to canvass members of Security Council; China, Russia and Jordan are on board with resolution pressing to end occupation, sources say.

    By Jack Khoury | Sep. 29, 2014 | 1:37 AM | 23

    Palestinian sources say members of Mahmoud Abbas’ delegation to the UN General Assembly in New York have received definitive “noes” from the United States, Britain and Australia regarding a proposed Security Council resolution setting a timetable for ending Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and establishing an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders.
    The officials have met with envoys from all 15 member-states of the United Nations body in the past few days in order to gauge the response such a resolution could expect. China and Russia, as well as together with rotating member Jordan, told the Palestinians they would support such a resolution. The other 15 states did not give a definitive answer.
    Senior members of the delegation told Haaretz that most of the countries expressed understanding for the move and recognition of the difficult situation of the Palestinians in light of Operation Protective Edge and the suspension of negotiations with Israel. They said some representatives requested more time before making their stances public.
    “Our main aim at this point is to get a majority of nine,” one of the officials said. “Even if in the end the Americans use their veto, it will put the Palestinian position in a much better place for taking other steps, like approaching the General Assembly and international organizations.” All substantive Security Council draft resolutions must have the agreement of all members in order to be adopted. Any of the five permanent members of the body — China, France, Russia, the United States and the United Kingdom — can use its veto power to reject a substantive resolution.
    As of Sunday, the Palestinians were continuing to canvas Security Council members in search of a majority, knowing that its value would be chiefly symbolic.
    Palestinian officials say the United States has been pressuring Arab states to recommend that the Palestinian proposal be delayed for a few months.
    “We’ve heard comments in the corridors urging us to postpone [the resolution] for various reasons, like it will undermine the war against Islamic terror or affect the mid-term elections [in the United States],” a source told Haaretz. “That’s why [Abbas] is working to convene the Arab group and hear them declare that they support the [Palestinian] move, so as to blunt the American pressure.”
    Palestinian presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh said a U.S. veto of the resolution in the Security Council would serve neither the Americans nor “the war on terror that the United States is leading – because in such a situation the administration will stand against justice and international law, and most countries in the world that have already recognized a Palestinian state in the 1967 borders. The United States will place itself in opposition to the nations of the world, and especially the Arab countries that are cooperating with it in the war on terror.”

    Real Estate is traded by deed and contract between consenting parties.

    Settlement is eminent domained from a sovereign albiet occupied State, by an occupying force and then sold to settling "citizens" of the occupation.

    Real Estate transfers usually involve a realtor and a lawyer

    Settlement transfers often involve one of these:

    'We endorse the idea of voluntarism; self-responsibility: Family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion: It never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person; it can't make you follow good habits.' - Ron Paul 1988
