ISRAEL–PALESTINE: The Broken Record

The account that follows has taken on greater significance since December 7th when President Donald Trump announced that he will fulfill the 1995 recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel, and take steps to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. International law is being thrown at President Trump and the State of Israel like murderous rocks in the hands of shababs. The peace process is a chorus line of porcelain dolls, too beautiful to touch, endangered by the heavy-handed president and the stubborn Jewish state. A pure white curtain is drawn over Middle East realities and the wailing of the professional mourners breaks the hearts of the world’s media. This brutal unilateral decision is tearing apart the pristine calm of the Middle East. And the 2-state solution in divine perfection floats down from the heavens, escorted by Palestinian angels. Everyone, or at least all the good souls in this wide world, knows the shape and the lines of this perfect state. It was almost ready to land. And now it’s all spoiled.

This is the assumption that underlies the weeping, wailing, and scolding. The righteous indignation. The peace process has been betrayed. The holier than thou international community had set forth the rules and the stepping stone and the destination. How dare this upstart president barge into the head of the line, pluck the gem of Jerusalem, and hand it to Israel?

Take the time to read this detailed account of a Colloquium held in Paris on November 27th. Palestinians and their supporters, speaking to an audience they assumed to be 100% sympathetic, made no secret of their intentions and ultimate objectives: to turn the Oslo process upside down. First, the creation of a sovereign Palestinian state. Then, the negotiations. These were not marginal extremists. Elias Sanbar is the Palestinian ambassador to UNESCO. Hala Abu-Hasira is “first counselor” of the Palestinian mission to France. Invited to take part in a debate on a French TV station yesterday, she smugly declared that Jerusalem, according to international law, is acorpus separatum. That was in 1947!

Israel-Palestine: broken record

[My translation of the original article published in French [http://infoequitable.org/israel-palestine-la-rengaine/]

“Israël-Palestine: Que la France s’engage” [France should get involved], the Colloquium organized by l’iReMMO [Institut de recherche et d’études Méditerranée Moyen-Orient] was sold out more than a week in advance. No way to contact the organization by telephone or leave a message. Obviously a must-attend. The Colloquium was sponsored by a handful of more or less respectable media: rfi, France 24, MCD, France Médias Monde, La Croix, Moyen-Orient, Médiapart, and OXXI. In the hushed comfort of the elegant Salle Clémenceau, snuggled in the heart of the Palais de Luxembourg, home of the French Senate, a distinguished audience savored a series of speeches seasoned with one single flavored-criminal Israel. It was all so subdued. And yet they were assenting to the premises of a politicide that flows from familiar dark sources.

Huis clos of the doxa

Alternating Palestinian complaints with accusations against the Jewish State of Israel, the speakers assembled the instrument that would, first, deprive the disgraceful state of its sovereignty. Then, reduced to submission, Israel would disappear. It wasn’t stated brutally. It just took shape. In the absence of any geopolitical context, rational arguments, chronology, and the slightest notion of cause and effect, words turned into lethal weapons. Colonization, Occupation, transfer of populations, war crimes, Far Right government, annexation, serious infractions, home demolitions, humiliation, apartheid, collective punishment. Israel, criminal state, does not listen, does not obey, enriches itself with impunity on the backs of the Occupied. Israel must be punished. Must be given an ultimatum: respect international law or be thrown out of the concert of democratic nations.

There were plenty of outworn ideas and one, relatively new, that is making its way in the international arena: Given the failure of the Oslo Accords and blockage of the peace process, it’s time to  reverse the order. Instead of settling one by one the burning issues-borders, land swaps, Jerusalem, refugees-and concluding with the creation of a Palestinian state, we must begin with recognition of a State of Palestine that will then  participate on an equal footing with Israel in subsequent negotiations. Recognition of a Palestinian proto- state in various international instances confirms this strategy.

There, in the heart of the building that houses the French Senate, there, at a Colloquium sponsored by a handful of media, some of them state-owned, there with the usual pretexts of peace and human rights, the speeches rang out like Koranic  imprecations … against the Jews.

1st round table: where things stand

[I arrive just as the moderator Dominique Vidal was winding up his introduction]: …800,000 Palestinians forced out [now reckoned at 6 million refugees to take back in], far right government, annexation of colonies, apartheid, abandon of the two-state solution…

Géraud de Pradelle (jurist, emeritus professor  Université Paris X-Nanterre)

The jurist summarizes the terms of UNSC Resolution N°2334, copies of which were available at the entry to the auditorium. Israel does not respect the Resolution, does not respect the Geneva Convention, commits very serious infractions, war crimes. International law itself is endangered by this disrespect. The situation is perverse: the creation of a Palestinian state is left to the discretion of a State of Israel that exists… and in a very muscular way.  France made a commitment by organizing a summit in January. Unfortunately there was no follow through. Unless it was the insult from Israel that announced, shortly afterward, housing construction in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Amira Hass (journalist, correspondent for Haaretz)

In the “Jenin  massacre” style, with touches of Rafle du Vel d’hiv,  Amira Hass delivers the dramatic scenario of a mass transfer of tens of thousands of Palestinians, our indigenous people, rounded up, bussed out, and dropped in Jordan and who knows where else. Five years ago she would not have publicly imagined such an ignominious plot. She thought Israel had made a compromise between the Israeli Jewish ancient urge to see the Palestinians disappear-almost fulfilled in 1948-but the Oslo Process allowed for this internal Israeli compromise: the concentration of Palestinians in overcrowded enclaves. There is even an Israeli scholar from Bar Ilan U., she says, without naming Mordechai Kedar, that is promoting this seven emirates solution. So it’s not just my imagination. Nazareth, a Palestinian town in Israel, is one of those congested enclaves. With Oslo, the world expected a solution, going back grosso modo to 1947. In fact, under the umbrella of Oslo, instead of a Palestinian space with specks of Israeli colonies that had to be removed, it’s specks of Palestine.

There have been too many expulsions. There’s a policy of transfer of Palestinians from Jerusalem. Palestinians were treated as newcomers to the country. More than 150,000 were expelled from the Golan Heights. Since 1991 Israel has made Gaza into an “open-space” prison. The loss of political and economic prospects is driving the young to emigrate. Israel used to be hypocritical about its intentions. Now it has no shame. The post-’67 post-’95 generations accept Jewish mastery, Jewish hegemony. They see Palestinians as attacking Israel, not resisting Occupation. The judiciary, never very brave but still a dike against extremism, is under attack, weakened, intimidated. There is much interest in the EU, but Europe is weary… Events in Europe, atrocities in the Middle East… interest has weakened.

Amira Hass says she attended, a month ago in Jerusalem, a Jordan is the Palestinian State Conference, organized, she does not say, by Ted Belman of the Israpundit site. Most of the speakers were Anglo-Saxon or settlers. One of the speakers, I forget his name [probably Yshai Fleisher] claimed to be a spokesman for the Jews of Hebron. Hah! The center of Hebron has been emptied of its old Palestinian families, merchants, women and children. The last speaker had a big pistol in his back.  She concludes: to foil this plan you have to acknowledge that it is very real in Israeli politics.

Hagai el Ad (executive director of B’tselem)

After screening a brief video, “Same Old Routine,” El Ad speaks from the heart, connecting historical injustices of the past with our times: the humiliation of the Palestinian people, Occupation, one people ruling over another for 50 years, the inherent violence of this reality. Quoting Frederick Douglass, he hastens to add that the Palestinians are not slaves. But they are not free. Their chains are invisible. They are excluded from the political process. He cites Nelson Mandela.  Apartheid. South Africa is not a perfect analogy, but, Israelis like myself are free, but there is a military dictatorship in the West Bank. Collective punishment, detention without trial, demolition of houses, all whitewashed by the military apparatus. Soldiers enter houses anywhere any time. Israel has made all of this legal. It goes back to 1970, ‘71, letting settlers vote, preventing Palestinians from legally building. This is violence. Global action against Occupation is non-violence. Europe bears responsibility for the context [= la Shoah] in which the State of Israel was established. The first step should be to implement UNSC Resolution 2334. Ultimately Israel must end the Occupation or no longer be treated as a democracy. This is the right side of history: Defending the Palestinians is defending the Israelis. They have been getting a green light from Washington to ignore Resolution 2334. The transfer of Palestinians is war crimes. “Are you seriously waiting for the US to end the Occupation?” [laughter] I am indebted to France for the creation of my state in 1947. But this has never been realized for the Palestinians. Many solutions are possible, but not another half century of Occupation. If no non-violent solution is found, violence of the past will be doubled. We must put an end to the crimes against God and Man which are the occupation. The international community must act. END THE OCCUPATION!

Shawan Jabarim (general director of Al-Haq )

Crowned with the authority of his white hair, Jabarim tells it like it is. I live under Occupation all my life. Some of you maybe visited Palestine. Go and see things on the ground. The UN Special Reporter has determined the illegality of this Occupation. It’s apartheid, it’s colonialism. Two different nationalities are living in the same land. For one of these populations, roads are prohibited. It was planned in ’67 how to force Palestinians out of their country. These realities are documented. 75% of Palestinians are under 29 years old. They see this oppression every day. How do they react to this Occupation that controls every aspect of our lives? Settlers are confiscating the land, producing, selling their produce. It’s the richest Occupation in history! They are taking everything, enjoying everything, taking 8 billion dollars a year from us. They don’t take any account of Occupied people. We say to Europeans, keep your money, we can manage without it. Keep your money, put pressure on Israel to let us enjoy our natural resources so we can build our society, we will have no unemployment, no young people coming to Europe. If you are friends of Israel you have to tell them this is wrong this is right. If not, you might face 800,000 immigrants on your doorstep.

Israel, he snarls, criminal Israel lives in a culture of impunity. The settlements are illegal. The transfer of civilians is a war crime. When you open your markets to produce of the territories, you reward crime. That produce should be banned. We have to bring liberty and justice to the victims, and punish the criminals. The High Court allows home demolitions. This is against international law, it’s a war crime. And now the US will close PA office in Washington. One of the conditions, PLO is not to go after criminals at the ICC. If you don’t want me to use international law, what do you want me to do? I am for peace, peace settlement based on international law. Punish the criminals. Recognize the Palestinian state. Show your support for self-determination.  The future is for Justice. Don’t let history repeat itself. Anyone that criticizes Israel is harassed. “We will never give up,” he declares triumphantly!!! [triumphant applause]

Brief interlude

During the 15-minute break a woman turns to me and asks if Amira Hass had mentioned the rôle of journalists. “I didn’t take earphones,” she explains, “and I wasn’t able to follow the English.” No, as a matter of fact, she didn’t. I summarize the Haaretz correspondent’s contribution. Madame thinks the media are… “They never reported the details of Resolution 2334.” She can’t bring herself to say exactly what she means. I nudge: More on the side of …? She doesn’t dare. But she gives an example: “On the screen, it was a commemoration… “I think she’s talking about the vote in favor of establishing a Jewish homeland in Palestine. “At the bottom of the screen, it was just mentioned in small print that the Israelis had closed three Palestinian schools in the West Bank.”  Ah, I reply, that must be the UNWRA schools that were used as military bases. She thinks both subjects should have been given equal importance. She doesn’t dare say the Jews control the media.

2nd round table: What do the actors want?

Elias Sanbar (writer, Palestine’s ambassador to UNESCO):

What do the Palestinians want? We’ve known for 26 years. But, stuck in an impasse, we ask what we can possibly obtain. The regional environment is explosive. Countries are disappearing. Arab countries- and this is new- are tired of the Palestinian cause, they have other priorities. Now, a dangerous though well-intentioned idea is going around: Israel is ravaging the whole land, but is unintentionally creating the binational state we thought we would never have. The Palestinians will resist, there will be massacres and blood baths. Did a repetition of 1947 seem impossible? Look what’s happening in Syria. The international community does nothing to stop it. I am in favor of a democratic state, that is, a binational state, but the two-state solution can be used as a first stage. The problem is, it’s being used today by those who want to destroy all hopes for a Palestinian state. There is such an intricate mix… land swaps will be impossible. You can’t find out where a colony begins or ends.

What can we do? Create facts on the ground. Irreversible. Like the admission of Palestine as a member in standing of UNESCO. We have to destroy the idea of territories. It’s one territory with one people! The inscription of world heritage sites is primordial. It’s the recognition of our sovereignty wherever a site is inscribed. Bethlehem!  We are sovereign there. Hebron! Despite the violent reaction to the inscription of Hebron, we won. What can France do? You say you are for peace? Well, it is impossible today because it is an affair between a recognized agent and another, not recognized. You must first recognize Palestine. If not, Israel is going to profit from its benefits to the end of time. Israel’s problem is that it doesn’t listen.

Ayman Odeh (member of the Knesset)

The deputy speaks Arabic, with an interpreter. The other non-Francophones spoke English. There are two currents in Israel, he says: one that acts to develop colonization, racism-it’s the current of Benjamin Netanyahu-and the other seeks to create a genuine democracy. That’s us. The only possible solution is a Palestinian state side by side with the state of Israel. As for the parameters, Abbas and Olmert managed pretty much to define the status of Jerusalem. But it wasn’t applied. Thousands of Palestinians have been killed since then. Résistance is resisting on one’s native land. On two fronts: the struggle of the Palestinian people and influencing Israeli public opinion. For example, the first Intifada. As an Arab citizen of the State of Israel I have every interest in a peaceful solution. We are 20% of the population. Netanyahu raised the ceiling for parties to enter the Knesset, thinking he could keep us out; we created a unified list, and we are 13 deputies. The problem is not just with the Right; the Left is bogged down in its contradictions. How shameful! This party that came to power, thanks in part to our votes, can’t manage to bring an end to Netanyahu’s power. And the new leader of Labor declares that there is no partner for peace and Israel should support the colonies.

Hala Abu-Hasira (First counselor, Mission of Palestine to France)

What do the Palestinians want? Freedom. Simply to be free. The Israelis do not want Palestinian sovereignty, they don’t want the return of refugees, not even in a Palestinian state. The negotiations were interrupted because Israel refused to liberate the fourth group of prisoners. Trump says he’s going to make the compromise of the century? No! We, the Palestinians, have made the compromise of the century. Obama, like Trump, sided with Israel; they allowed the colonization to spread and develop. The American Congress has 27 laws in reserve to punish the Palestinians. To punish us for our non-violence, for turning to the ICC pleading for Israel to be punished for the colonization, for war crimes. The United States is disqualified for the rôle of mediator. We are engaged in the process of reconciliation [Hamas-AP]. The Palestinian street wants it. We don’t see any other prospects but colonization, home demolitions, collective punishment. The situation in Gaza is serious: no running water, hardly any electricity, unemployment; 80% of the population lives on international aid. There’s a change in leadership of Hamas, under pressure from Egypt, deprived of support from Qatar and Syria. With the reopening of the crossings, under PA control, we hope to create decent living conditions. France has done a lot: the Summit in January 2017, the vote in favor of Palestine’s membership in UNESCO. More can be done to put pressure on Israel: for example, labeling products from the colonies. The majority of Palestinians back the two-state solution. To do it, it is imperative to recognize Palestine before starting negotiations. Today Israel has no more pretexts, the international community has no more pretexts. We have to solve this problem that has been going on for 70 years! [= since 1947]

Daniel Shek

All of the other speakers were introduced with their titles and positions; Dany Shek has only his name to identify him. But he starts out, anyway, casting stones at his friends, “many of whom advised me not to participate.” [malicious laughter] He continues, speaking frankly but friendly, breaking the airtight unanimity of the morning. If the intention is to evaluate where we stand, says the former Israeli ambassador to France, it doesn’t make sense to invite Ayman Odeh, Amira Hass, Hagai el Ad…for whom I have the greatest respect. They represent 1 or 2 % of the population. It’s as if we don’t dare to confront the contradictions. Gathering together every year to repeat our convictions… is it useful? If the speakers don’t see any real difference between Right and Left, between Oslo and the population transfer plan …what’s the use? Shek focusses on realities: there will be no forceful intervention by the international community. Don’t hold your breath. [in English in the text] Nothing could push me to defend Benyamin Netanyahu, but the current government was elected. I am opposed to the colonization, I am for the two state solution. I look for the breach. The international community must overcome the lack of willingness of the protagonists on both sides. The solution cannot be imposed.  The people are ahead of their governments. Both parties made serious mistakes all through the conflict. I am active in the Israel Peace Initiative. We seek an agreement in a regional context. I am not a fan of Trump but his administration is the only one that has taken an initiative in this direction. France should support him, not oppose him.

He outlines three basic errors: Israel insists on strictly bilateral talks; the United States is the only outside force permitted; nothing is concluded until everything is concluded. We must question these assumptions, open other channels of negotiation, relieve the fears of both Israelis and Palestinians. I believe that the Jewish people have the right to a state and that the Palestinians have a right to self-determination. Things are very bad in my country but we should look for a ray of sunshine. We shouldn’t get together every year for a Colloquium of lamentations.

Zeev Sternhell

Earlier in the program, a moderator mentioned that Sternhell had survived an attack committed by a right-wing extremist, but the distinguished historian and specialist of the Far Right, like Shek, is presented without titles, without honors. He digs right in! Without getting lost in laborious refutations, he announces in an unwavering voice that a two-state solution that would end the conflict is possible… but only if Israelis and Palestinians accept the irreversibility of the situation created in 1948. Now, neither the Israeli Right nor the Palestinians accept it. Asking what the Israelis want is like asking what the French want. Sternhell runs down the scale of political positions from the Front National to the Insoumis and all points between those two extremes. Israel is a democracy. You have to win elections. We don’t have a Constitution. We have something like the British system. Our founders would never have imagined people like those who are in power today. They are not gentlemen.

The green line of 1949 has become the de facto frontier. Palestine never had defined borders. For the first time, Jews are recognized as citizens of our state. We want to remain citizens of our state and we want the Arabs to have equality.

For the Palestinians, renouncing the right of return means the end of the demand to undo 1948. That’s the real stumbling block. Arafat should have gone to a refugee camp and he should have told them: it’s over, you’re never going back. Keep your keys, keep your dreams, you’re not going to return. As for the colonies, the question is not are they legal; they are not legitimate. It was necessary to take the land in 1949, no people anywhere had as great a need for a roof over their heads. It was legitimate. We won. The colonies are not legitimate. But it is impossible to end 100% of the colonization. The major part, yes. Israel has to be convinced that it has a partner that accepts 1948. All the rest, the great powers, forget about all that. They’re not interested, the only ones interested in the Palestinians are the Israelis and the only possibility is to accept 1948.

[December 8th: Christiane Amanpour replays her interview with Yasser Arafat in the summer of 2000, shortly after the failed Camp David negotiations. She asks him if he would be willing to share Jerusalem with the Israelis His answer was “No, absolutely not.”]

Re-entry into the real world

By the time the second round-table ends, it’s already 2 PM. Time for the lunch break. Questions to speakers of the second round-table are postponed until the end of the afternoon session. I escape. I am curious to know if demi-dissidents Dany Shek and Zeev Sternhell stimulated debate, but I can’t consecrate any more time to the litany criminal- state -punish-Israel. Dany Shek had remarked,”I don’t think anyone in this room defends the colonization.”  By leaving, I probably confirmed his supposition. [update: in fact, someone I know attended the afternoon session. No debate. Same tune, same self-righteous consensus.]

Evening newscast i24 news:

The guttural voice of Hamas tears apart the illusion of reconciliation…or confirms it for the worst: Disarmament? Out of the question! On the contrary, our weapons will be transferred to the West Bank and used to attack Israel and end the Occupation. [30 November: reconciliation is postponed] Reunion in Riyadh of 40 Muslim states united against terrorism, including Pakistan, where the killer that committed the massacre at the Chabad house in Mumbai has just been released from prison.

Will France get involved? I asked the question in 2000:

Where will the tifosi of October 2000 be when the Palestinians are defeated? 

Because it can’t be denied that they have more than once lost by armed struggle what they could have obtained through negotiation. Instead of awarding the Palestinians unlimited privileges as the supposedly most oppressed of all the oppressed peoples in the world, wouldn’t it be more intelligent to imagine-along with them-different solutions to the conflict? Solutions that don’t depend on the destruction of the State of Israel or worldwide war against the Jews.

Guatemala moving their embassy to Jerusalem, backing President Trump

When one man has the courage to stand up and do the right thing, others follow.

“Guatemala to move embassy to Jerusalem, backing Trump,” Reuters, December 25, 2017:

GUATEMALA CITY (Reuters) – Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales said on Sunday he had given instructions to move the Central American country’s embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, a few days after his government backed the United States in a row over the city’s status.

In a short post on his official Facebook account, Morales said he decided to move the embassy from Tel Aviv after talking to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday.

This month U.S. President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, reversing decades of U.S. policy and upsetting the Arab world and Western allies.

On Thursday, 128 countries defied Trump by backing a non-binding U.N. General Assembly resolution calling for the United States to drop its recognition of Jerusalem.

Guatemala was one of only a handful of countries to join the United States and Israel in voting against the resolution….

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania: Muslim killed after targeting cops in shooting rampage

The jihadi savages have promised to strike during the Christmas season. This particular savage was “deliberately targeting police officers.” This is something we have seen before — for example, last February, a Muslim who shot and killed an armed Denver transit security officer had Islamic writings in his possession when he was arrested. It is not surprising that those who are trying to subvert the law would target those who are enforcing the law.

Cue the stories about “islamophobia,” “anti-Muslim backlash,” etc.

“Gunman killed after targeting Pennsylvania cops in shooting rampage,” by Katie Honan, New York Daily News, December 23, 2017:

A gunman hell-bent on shooting cops was killed in a firefight with police in Harrisburg, Pa., Friday, authorities said.

During his rampage, Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty, 51, did manage to hit one cop with a bullet, Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico said. That officer is in stable condition.

El-Mofty began his spree at 4:10 p.m. when he opened fire on a Capitol Police car near the State Capitol building in Harrisburg, according to Marsico.

The gunman jumped in a car and chased a Pennsylvania State trooper into a nearby residential neighborhood with guns blazing, hitting the officer once, Marsico said.

El-Mofty, who had at least two 9-mm handguns on him, then fired multiple shots at officers from the Harrisburg and Pennsylvania State police departments. He was killed during the shootout.

“There’s no doubt he was directly targeting police officers,” Marsico said. The DA added that El-Mofty recently traveled to the Middle East….

Obama’s Protection of Iran’s Terror/Cocaine Rackets Tied to Muslim Spymaster, Imran Awan

Worse than that.

The bombshell news story that President Barack Obama torpedoed a DEA-led effort to stop Hezbollah from smuggling cocaine into the country so that his nuclear pact with the terror state would not be undermined is worse than that. President Obama’s Hezbollah operatives worked with the Muslim spy ring led by Imran and Abid Awan who hacked and downloaded thousands of classified documents from senior Democrat pols and intel committees.

Capitol Police are looking into the massive amounts of data the Awans reportedly downloaded off the congressional system, thousands of illegal log ins made on the official system, possible theft of tens of thousands of dollars in congressional equipment and fraud  and sent to foreign governments and groups.

No wonder the Democrats tried to squirrel these jihad spies out of the country.

Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller is out with a follow-up to a report on the Awan Pakistani IT family who had access to highly sensitive Congressional networks, both on-site and from Pakistan, where they are suspected of a variety of crimes -including brokering classified information to hostile foreign governments. Of note, they had access to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence – whose members have top secret clearance and are looking into Russian election interference. The Awans also operated a used car dealership known as “CIA” in court filings, which has all the markings of a money laundering operation.

On its Facebook page, CIA’s “staff” were fake personalities such as “James Falls O’Brien,” whose photo was taken from a hairstyle model catalog, and “Jade Julia,” whose image came from a web page called “Beautiful Girls Wallpaper.”

If a customer showed up looking to buy a car from Cars International A, often referred to as CIA, Abid Awan — who was managing partner of the dealership while also earning $160,000 handling IT for House Democrats — would freuently simply go across the street to longstanding dealership called AAA Motors and get one.

While Imran and Abid Awan ran their car dealership in Falls Church, Va. in the early part of the decade, Drug Enforcement Agency officials a few miles away in Chantilly were learning that the Iranian-linked terrorist group frequently deployed used car dealerships in the US to launder money and fund terrorism, according to an explosive new Politico expose. –Daily Caller

Wait for it.

“Based on the modest way Awan was living, it is my opinion that he was sending most of his money to a group or criminal organization that could very well be connected with the Pakistani government,” said Wayne Black, a private investigator who served as law enforcement group supervisor in Janet Reno’s Miami public corruption unit. “My instincts tell me Awan was probably operating a foreign intelligence gathering operation on US soil.”

Officials told Politico that prosecutors refused to help them punish top Hezbollah operatives involved in its money laundering network because of political concerns, such as fears of jeopardizing the Obama administration’s deal with Iran. Similarly, the Awans, who had close relationships to House Democrats including Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Gregory Meeks, have not been charged with any crimes surrounding the dealership nor with their House activities. The disclosure of a House IT breach shortly before the election by Pakistani-born Democratic staffers would have had political fallout.

Shortly before the 2016 election, investigators found huge amounts of House equipment unaccounted for under the Awans’ stewardship, and when they looked into the family further, they found that they had logged in to members’ computers for whom they did not work. There were signs that the House Democratic Caucus’ server “is being used for nefarious purposes” by the Awans, according to a House investigation, and “steps are being taken to conceal their activity.”

Politico tells the story of Ali Fayad, a “Ukraine-based arms merchant suspected of being a Hezbollah operative moving large amounts of weapons to Syria:”

Lebanese arms dealer Ali Fayad Ali Fayad, a suspected top Hezbollah operative whom agents believed reported to Russian President Vladimir Putin as a key supplier of weapons to Syria and Iraq, was arrested in Prague in the spring of 2014. But for the nearly two years Fayad was in custody, top Obama administration officials declined to apply serious pressure on the Czech government to extradite him to the United States, even as Putin was lobbying aggressively against it.

HOUSE IT AIDES RAN CAR DEALERSHIP WITH MARKINGS OF A NEFARIOUS MONEY LAUNDERING OPERATION

 Lucas Rosak, Daily Caller, December 21, 2017

On its Facebook page, CIA’s “staff” were fake personalities such as “James Falls O’Brien,” whose photo was taken from a hairstyle model catalog, and “Jade Julia,” whose image came from a web page called “Beautiful Girls Wallpaper.”

If a customer showed up looking to buy a car from Cars International A, often referred to as CIA, Abid Awan — who was managing partner of the dealership while also earning $160,000 handling IT for House Democrats — would frequently simply go across the street to another dealership called AAA Motors and get one.

“If AAA borrows a car to Cars International and they have a customer, it was simply take the car across the street and sell it, and then later on give the profit back or not,” Nasir Khattak, who ran the longstanding AAA dealership, testified in a lawsuit. “There was no documentation… If you go and try to dissect, you will not be able to make any sense out of them because there were many, dozens and dozens, of cars Khattak did not explain why he would ruin his existing business to help the Awans. “All of those transactions was to support Cars International A from AAA Motors,” he testified. “That’s why I did not make any money from my dealership because my resources were supporting Cars International A.”

He said only Imran Awan knew what became of the money. “It was Imram, [Abid] Awan’s brother, who was running the business in full control,” he said.

Imran Awan and his family members were congressional IT aides who investigators said made unauthorized access to the House Democratic Caucus server thousands of times. At the same time as they worked for and could read all the emails of congressmen who sat on committees like Intelligence, Homeland Security and Foreign Affairs, they also ran a car dealership that took money from a Hezbollah-linked fugitive and whose financial books were indecipherable and business patterns bizarre, according to testimony in court records.

While Imran and Abid Awan ran their car dealership in Falls Church, Va. in the early part of the decade, Drug Enforcement Agency officials a few miles away in Chantilly were learning that the Iranian-linked terrorist group frequently deployed used car dealerships in the US to launder money and fund terrorism, according to an explosive new Politico expose.

The money that disappeared between the Awans’ dealership, some $7 million in congressional pay, the equipment suspected of disappearing from Congress under their watch, and their other side businesses — all while they displayed few signs of wealth and frequently haggled in court over small amounts of money — raise questions about whether the Awans might have been laundering money or sending it to a third party.

“Based on the modest way Awan was living, it is my opinion that he was sending most of his money to a group or criminal organization that could very well be connected with the Pakistani government,” said Wayne Black, a private investigator who served as law enforcement group supervisor in Janet Reno’s Miami public corruption unit. “My instincts tell me Awan was probably operating a foreign intelligence gathering operation on US soil.”

Officials told Politico that prosecutors refused to help them punish top Hezbollah operatives involved in its money laundering network because of political concerns, such as fears of jeopardizing the Obama administration’s deal with Iran. Similarly, the Awans, who had close relationships to House Democrats including Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Gregory Meeks, have not been charged with any crimes surrounding the dealership nor with their House activities. The disclosure of a House IT breach shortly before the election by Pakistani-born Democratic staffers would have had political fallout.

Shortly before the 2016 election, investigators found huge amounts of House equipment unaccounted for under the Awans’ stewardship, and when they looked into the family further, they found that they had logged in to members’ computers for whom they did not work. There were signs that the House Democratic Caucus’ server “is being used for nefarious purposes” by the Awans, according to a House investigation, and “steps are being taken to conceal their activity.”

Politico tells the story of Ali Fayad, a “Ukraine-based arms merchant suspected of being a Hezbollah operative moving large amounts of weapons to Syria:”

Lebanese arms dealer Ali Fayad Ali Fayad, a suspected top Hezbollah operative whom agents believed reported to Russian President Vladimir Putin as a key supplier of weapons to Syria and Iraq, was arrested in Prague in the spring of 2014. But for the nearly two years Fayad was in custody, top Obama administration officials declined to apply serious pressure on the Czech government to extradite him to the United States, even as Putin was lobbying aggressively against it.

Abid Awan is married to a Ukranian named Nataliia Sova, who was herself on the House payroll as an IT aide in 2010 and 2011 for Reps. Emmanuel Cleaver, Ted Deutch, and Gabby Giffords. Abid incorporated Cars International in 2008, and Cars International A in 2009, taking out loans from the Congressional credit union while omitting the dealership from House financial disclosures. It was not clear how he could have been working at both the dealership and a high-paid congressional job.

In 2010, the CIA dealership took a $100,000 loan from Dr. Ali Al-Attar, who is of Iranian heritage and was a minister in the Iraqi government, according to court records. Al-Attar is a fugitive wanted by the U.S. government. Philip Giraldi, a former CIA officer, wrote that Attar “was observed in Beirut, Lebanon conversing with a Hezbollah official” in 2012–shortly after the loan was made.

The money was moved from Ali Al-Attar through accounts intended for Fairfax County real estate. Both Imran Awan and Khattak — who also put up $200,000 in cash as an investor in CIA — had realtors licenses.

It’s not clear where the dealership’s money was going, because it was sued by at least five different people on all ends of a typical car business who said they were stiffed. CIA didn’t pay the security deposit, rent or taxes for its building, it didn’t pay wholesalers who provided cars, and it sold broken cars to people and then refused to honor the warranties, the lawsuits say.

“The consignment agreements state it clearly that either Mr. Awan sells the cars for the agreed price no less $62,200 or return my cars back. I need my cars back,” Issmail Alchaleh, one wholesaler, wrote in court documents. Some of the consignment agreements use the same VIN for multiple cars.

Abid declared bankruptcy in 2010 to discharge debts racked up by the car dealership. One person who was listed on bankruptcy documents as being owed money by the dealership, Rao Abbas, later appeared on the House payroll as an IT aide, even though his most recent job experience was working at McDonalds. Democrats have refused to explain why they hired him.

Abid kept ownership of two houses in the bankruptcy by saying he was separated or divorcing from Sova, but even this year, they were still together, and Sova used Abid’s residence when incorporating her own car companies. Sova established a mysterious company called Alain LLC in 2009, followed by Discover EZ Car Buying Co. in 2014 and Regional Car Center Inc. in 2015. Virginia incorporation documents list Abid’s home address as the businesses’ location, and a Google search did not reveal any evidence of the dealerships existing, which is incongruous for a line of work where basic revenue depends on making sure potential customers know where to find them.

Other opaque companies, such as New Dawn 2001 and Acg LLC, were also established in 2011 out of Imran’s house.

A relative of the Awans told TheDCNF that Abid sent huge quantities of iPads and iPhones to Pakistan and that Imran frequently talked about Russia. They also sent money to a Pakistani police officer. The brothers’ stepmother, Samina Gilani, said in court documents that when the family spends time in Pakistan, the brothers are escorted by a motorcade of Pakistani government agents. Rep. Yvette Clarke, a New York Democrat who employed Abid, filed paperwork saying that $120,000 in technology equipment went missing while Abid managed it for the office.

Despite brothers Imran, Abid and Jamal and Imran’s wife, Hina Alvi, all making chief-of-staff level salaries of $160,000 on Capitol Hill, they displayed few signs of wealth in the US, further raising questions about where all the money was going. Abid is in a lawsuit against his stepmother after Abid replaced her with himself on his father’s life insurance policy, and his attorney, Jim Bacon, told a judge he needed money. Imran’s lawyer said his children were living in squalor. They reported few holdings on their House ethics disclosures.

They bought houses will little money down, then rented them out, insisting that rent be paid in cash, tenants told TheDCNF. Sources said the FBI generated Suspicious Activity Reports hundreds of pages long based on large cash deposits and international wires.

Members of Congress have refused to acknowledge what is well-known among the House bureaucracy, that investigators found conclusive evidence that the Awans wantonly violated House IT regulations. “There’s no question about it: If I was accused of a tenth of what these guys are accused of, they’d take me out in handcuffs that same day,” a fellow House IT aide said. But fellow IT aides with knowledge pertinent to the case said the FBI hasn’t even interviewed them.

Politico’s money-laundering story echoed similar themes: “Right now, we have 50 FBI agents not doing anything because they know their Iran cases aren’t going anywhere,” including investigations into allegedly complicit used-car dealers, a prosecutor said.

THE IT GUYS IN THE HOUSE CRIMINAL PROBE COULD READ THESE MEMBERS’ EMAILS

The Awans and their associates collected more than $5 million in pay from congressional offices, often drawing chief-of-staff level pay though there is reason to believe many didn’t even show up. They are suspected of cybersecurity violations. The money is broken down by year, congressional office and family member paid:

Imran, Abid and Jamal Awan and Hina Alvi, Natalia Sova and Rao Abbas.

Vision of Saint John Paul II: Islam will invade Europe

“I see the Church afflicted by a deadly scourge. Deeper, more painful and more deadly than those of this millennium’, referring to … communism and Nazi totalitarianism. It’s called islamism. They will invade Europe. I saw the hordes coming from the West to the East.”

But in public, the Pope was kissing the Koran and sucking up to the Muslim world.

NEWLY REVEALED VISION OF ST. POPE JOHN PAUL: ISLAM WILL INVADE EUROPE

LifeSite News, Dorothy Cummings McLean, November 22, 2017 (hat tip Dr.Andrew Bostom):

Bienno, Italy, November 23, 2017 (LifeSiteNews): A close friend of Saint John Paul II has affirmed that the late pope, revealed to have been a mystic, told him that Europe would be invaded by Islam.

Speaking to a large group at the hermitage of “Saints Peter and Paul” this past October, Monsignor Mauro Longhi of the Opus Dei prelature recounted a conversation he had with the late pontiff in March of 1993 on one of their many hiking trips in the mountains. Having got ahead of the rest of their companions, Longhi and St. John Paul took a sandwich break.

In video footage of the October talk, Longhi is heard saying that he noticed that the saint’s hands were trembling. (John Paul’s Parkinson’s disease had not yet been revealed in 1993.) The pope noticed the then-young man’s gaze.

“Dear Mauro, it’s old age,” he explained.

Longhi jumped in to say, “But, no, Holiness, you are young.”

“It’s not true,” the pope snapped back. “I say that I am old because I am old.”

Longhi continued: “Then Wojtyla changed tone, and making me privy to one of his night-time visions, told me, ‘Tell this to those whom you will meet in the Church of the third millennium. I see the Church afflicted by a deadly scourge. Deeper, more painful and more deadly than those of this millennium’, referring to … communism and Nazi totalitarianism. ‘It’s called islamism. They will invade Europe. I saw the hordes coming from the West to the East’, and he described to me the countries one by one: from Morocco to Libya to Egypt, and so on to the eastern parts. The Holy Father added, ‘They will invade Europe, Europe will be like a cellar, old relics, shadowy, cobwebs. Family heirlooms. You, the Church of the third millennium, will have to contain the invasion. Not with armies, armies will not suffice, but with your faith, lived with integrity.’ ”

According to La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana, which broke the story in Italian, Longhi is a “priest above suspicion,” having “enjoyed the personal esteem not only of John Paul II but also of Benedict XVI, so much so that in 1997 he was called to the Vatican dicastery of the Congregation for Clergy.” Between 1985 and 1995 Longhi, who was ordained in 1995, accompanied John Paul II on his skiing and hiking trips, hosting him at Opus Dei’s summer home in Abruzzo, which at the time was only “a simple house in the countryside.”

Osama bin Laden documents show Iran’s extensive aid to al-Qaeda

The Telegraph headline says that the documents “reveal” Iran’s “secret” dealings with al-Qaeda, but anyone who read my 2016 book The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Iran would already know that Iran collaborated with al-Qaeda, including in the preparations for the 9/11 jihad attacks.

Osama bin Laden

“Trove of Bin Laden documents reveal Iran’s secret dealings with al-Qaeda,” by Josie Ensor, Telegraph, November 1, 2017 (thanks to Lookmann):

A newly released trove of documents recovered from Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan compound have revealed “secret dealings” between Iran and al-Qaeda.

Nearly half a million files found on the computer seized in the May 2, 2011, US raid on the al-Qaeda founder’s hideout in Abbottabad were released by the CIA on Wednesday.

A never-before-seen 19-page document purportedly written by a senior member of al-Qaeda details an arrangement between Iran and members of the group to strike American interests in “Saudi Arabia and the Gulf.”

In exchange, Shia Iran offered Sunni militants “money, arms” and “training in Hizbollah camps in Lebanon.”

Iranian intelligence facilitated the travel of some operatives with visas, while sheltering others.

The author of the file, described as “well-connected,” explains that al-Qaeda’s forces violated the terms of the agreement of the deal, however, resulting in several men being detained.

Iranian connections to Hizballah and Palestinian militant groups, such as Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, are well-documented, but its ties to al-Qaeda have until now mostly been shrouded in secrecy.

The timing of the release comes as US President Donald Trump is trying to decertify a bilateral deal agreed with Iran to end its nuclear proliferation programme, which was negotiated by his predecessor Barack Obama and one which he has described as the “worst deal ever made”.

Mr Trump has been keen to portray Tehran as America’s greatest threat and will no doubt seize upon the documents as proof of the Islamic republic’s support for terrorism in the region.

Speaking at a national security seminar organised by the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies in Washington DC last month about the release of the documents, Mike Pompeo, CIA director, said al-Qaeda and Iran have always built “secret and open” ties.

Mr Pompeo attributed the relationship between the two parties to the fact that they view the West as a common enemy, referring to an “ideological consensus” of their cooperation against the West.

He added that the two sides did not fight against each other because they considered the West a greater threat to them….

VIDEO: The Third Jihad – Radical Islam’s Vision for America

The Third Jihad covers a different aspect of Islam’s attempts at taking us over. Whereas “Obsession” concentrated on the violence against Western Civilization with America being central to that attack, this film concentrates almost entirely on the strategy to turn America into an Islamic country bound by Sharia law, without violence. This film takes a look at the more sinister underlying and acceptable part of Islam that wants to conquer through the peaceful transition from democracy to Sharia law.

What is so diabolical is that these Muslims are not al Qaeda, Hezbollah or Islamic Jihad. They are homegrown, work within the system, using democratic principles to spread their ideology.

This is the non-violent component of The Third Jihad, the constant pressure upon Western governments to accommodate Muslims along with the active proselytizing of Christians and Jews in Western countries, the end result is to establish a worldwide caliphate. That is a world which is totally Islamic and run by Sharia law, with all the oppression that system applies to women, gays, Jews, Christians, and the life threatening aspects to all those who do not bend to the Islamic will.

The film begins by introducing Zhudi Jasser an American Medical doctor, immigrated from the Muslim world and acts as the narrator of the film. Dr. Jasser like so many other honorable Muslim people tries to convince the more impressionable coming out of the Madrassas and the universities that the west is not their enemy and it is wrong to distort certain sections of the Koran and kill in Mohammad’s name.

There are handful of brave Muslim people speaking out against the insanity and trying to warn a lythargic west that the Jihadi threat is real. Noni Darwish, Walid Phares, Sari Nusseibeh, Walid Shoebat, along with Jasser , act like the prophets of the old testament, warning us about something, but are we listening?

One of the trademarks of the Shore/Kopping enterprise is the commentators that appear in their films. Experts in their fields, they make a strong case for the film’s thesis. One of those is Bernard Lewis, Professor Emeritus from Princeton University. Dr. Lewis is one of the foremost authorities on Islamic history in the west. He is also one of the few Islamic historians in western universities that does not apologize for Islamic transgressions against democratic institutions. Dr. Lewis gives a different but very cogent academic view of this part of world history. He calls the problem a “cosmic struggle between two religiously defined civilizations,” Christianity and Islam.

He explains the rapid spread of Islam during the 7th and 8th centuries when the “Arabs came out of Arabia and moved into the Fertile Crescent, the spread east through Iraq and into modern day Iran, central Asia and India, west through Syria, Palestine, into Egypt and across North Africa, and then into Europe where they conquered Spain and Portugal and ruled Italy for quite awhile.” Dr. Lewis’ analysis for this rapid spread of the religion, “it was obviously not done by peaceful persuasion.” That was the first Jihad.

The second Jihad was the rise of the Ottomans when Islam spread to the outskirts of Vienna before they were turned back. And, again you are left thinking that without a war stance put up by the Europeans, Islam would not have been stopped at Vienna in 1683.

Zhudi Jasser then comes on the screen and tells the audience that we in our time are living through the Third Jihad, because “we are in the third and final phase of their mission to bring about the domination of their version of Islam.” All the while little red crescents are being super imposed on a map of first Asia and Africa and then a larger section with Constantinople at the center and finally when talking about the Third Jihad the whole world is covered with them.

It’s a chilling reminder that Islam was born to conquer and continues to do that in the 21st century.

One of primary tactics of American Muslim organizations is deception. These organizations and the people that run them use our democracy to further their aims. Meanwhile, people in America and in the west are not noticing what is going on in their democratic systems.

One of the deceivers showcased in this film Abdul Rahman Alamoudi. For those old enough to remember the prayer service that President Bush held about a week after 9-11 and he had some interfaith leaders behind him on the dais. The Muslim representative was Alamoudi. He spoke in honor of the victims of the attack all the while probably feeling victorious inside that America was paying for its crimes against Islam.

He was implicated in the assassination attempt of the Saudi Crown Prince Abdallah , has openly campaigned for some of the worst terror organizations in the world, at the same time snuggling up to heavy weight politicians in Washington in both parties, serving President Clinton as Islamic advisor and worked with Grover Norquist and had a close relationship with President Bush.

Alamoudi advocates violence against Americans, against Jews and others he calls enemies in the Middle East. He has openly campaigned in public for Hamas and Hezbollah and the killing of Jews in Israel.

Alamoudi was convicted on a number of charges in 2004, relating to the crimes listed above and is now in jail. Alamoudi got caught. Here are the questions we should be asking and demanding answers to. How many more Alamoudi’s are out there, scheming, working under the radar, constantly undermining the democracy of the United States, feeding America’s enemies, and spreading The Third Jihad? What is so wrong with our immigration system that allows an enemy like Alamoudi to enter this country in the first place?

Allowing these figures to operate freely in America is slowly turning our country from a bastion of freedom to an oppressed Muslim entity. Not today or tomorrow but someday it will happen. If Americans want to know what their country will be like even fifteen or twenty years from now, Europe is a good example. Melanie Phillips, the author of “Londonistan,” insists that we are not paying attention to what is happening in the Muslim world. She says we ought to be listening to them and understanding what their intentions are. Little by little Muslim efforts work tirelessly to change one aspect at a time.

The film’s message, look for it, recognize it, speak out against it before it is too late.

Americans and other westerners are vastly naïve about the enemy we face. If we stop maybe they will stop. No, they won’t stop, they will never stop. They, the enemy must be defeated thoroughly on all fronts devastatingly, and completely. That is the only thing that will defeat them. It requires a determination that is much bigger than the enemy can ever muster. The Third Jihad shows that if we are going to be victorious we are going to have to work much harder than we are now.

The choice is ours ultimately. How much do you value liberty? If it is anything to the right of Sharia law then Americans are going to have to get moving, because right now the enemy is winning. If we continue on our present course, our grandchildren will be praying to Allah five times a day and will consider the drawing of cartoons as a crime punishable by death.

Let’s not let that happen.

Terrorism-related cases in Germany quadruple in one year

Terrorism cases have quadrupled in Germany? Now, what on earth could be the cause of that? Could it have anything to do with the mass migration of Muslims into the country? No, to think that would be “Islamophobic.”

“BKA chief Holger Münch told daily newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau in July that the danger from the far-right and far-left is minor compared to threats posed by jihadis.”

It is good of Münch to be honest. In the U.S., the Leftist media continues to insist that the threat from “right-wing extremists” is greater than the jihad threat.

BKA chief Holger Münch

“Terrorism-Related Cases In Germany Quadruple In One Year,” by Jacob Bojesson, Daily Caller, October 22, 2017:

The number of terrorism-related cases investigated by German authorities have quadrupled over the past year, newspaper Welt am Sonntag revealed Sunday.

Prosecutors have opened more than 900 cases so far this year, compared to 240 throughout 2016. Just 80 cases related to terrorism reached the courts in 2013.

The federal prosecutors office can’t keep up with the increase and nearly 300 cases have been transferred to the state level. Not all cases involve plans to carry out attacks. Migrants from Syran, Iraq and Afghanistan have been tried over alleged membership in terror groups without being suspected of planning attacks on European soil.

Germany’s federal police (BKA) estimates 705 Islamist extremists are willing to carry out terror attacks, up from 600 during an estimate in February. Germany’s domestic intelligence agency (BfV) recently said around 24,400 Islamists are active in the country but most of them don’t pose an immediate terror threat.

BKA chief Holger Münch told daily newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau in July that the danger from the far-right and far-left is minor compared to threats posed by jihadis….

U.S. to ISIS: ‘Unconditionally Surrender’ or ‘Die’

Fresh on the heels of the Las Vegas shooting that ISIS insists was their doing, the US vows to destroy it. Even if it loses all its territory, of course, there will still be Muslims around the world who believe in ISIS and will still commit mass murder for Islam.

“US To ISIS: Unconditionally Surrender Or Die,” by Jonah Bennett, Daily Caller News Foundation, October 11, 2017 (thanks to Todd):

The U.S. is refusing to accept any negotiated withdrawal of Islamic State fighters from the terror group’s capital in Syria and will only accept complete, unconditional surrender.

In a statement Wednesday, the U.S.-led coalition in the fight against ISIS said it would not accept a negotiated withdrawal of ISIS fighters out of Raqqa, even as the coalition is trying to evacuate 4,000 civilians out of the city, The Associated Press reports.

Instead, Army spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon said the coalition discussions about what will happen to the remaining 300-400 ISIS fighters in about 1.5 square miles of the city have all centered around “unconditional surrender.”

For the coalition, negotiated withdrawal “is absolutely something that we as a coalition would not be a part of or agree with.”

The coalition believes the militants use the city’s hospital as their main headquarters and the stadium to store weapons.

So far, just 15 fighters over the last several weeks have surrendered.

In preparation to evacuate civilians from the cit,y coalition airstrikes have died down to a slow pace.

Over the past week, the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces wrested control of 40 blocks from ISIS. About 85 percent of the city is now estimated clear….
