From The USA
VT: To save America, purge the Neocons and warmongers from the White House By Jonas E. Alexis. This needless and extremely expensive presence all across the globe must be cut back radically if we are to free ourselves from the Neocon and Liberal Interventionist mafia that controls our government in Washington. The side benefit will be to free up a large part of our present $600 billion military budget for reallocation to home needs.
VT: False flag attack on Khan Shaykhun – Part Deux. By Michael Shrimpton. Happy Easter everyone! I hope that the Easter Bunny was generous. Having advised an armed attack against a sovereign state which was not responsible for using a Weapon of Mass Destruction, General McMaster and Reince Priebus are looking more like stuffed bunnies this Easter. The fact that my first article on Khan Shaykhun was taken down as part of a cyber-attack on VT suggests that I was spot on! Distinguished VT colleagues on the ground in Syria independently confirmed my analysis, with their conclusions being reported on Monday. The entire site of course was taken down for about 12 hours on Sunday. Colleagues have suggested that McMaster, delightfully nicknamed ‘Mixmaster’ by a loyal reader, was responsible. I wouldn’t bet against it. He’s probably in panic mode right now. It’s always a good idea to drop bombs on the right target.
VT: Will the Mossad Assassinate Iranian president Hassan Rouhani? By Jonas E. Alexis. “The murder of a top Hamas operative last month was an inside job, Israel’s Defense Minister has claimed, adding he would ‘not be surprised’ if ‘somebody’ eventually assassinates one of the fundamentalist organization’s most ardent supporters – the president of Iran…”
HAARETZ: Wary Israel tried to conceal East Jerusalem’s annexation in 1967, documents reveal. And it wasn’t the only time Israel tried to hide its actions for fear of the world’s response By Nir Hasson
DESERTPEACE: HUMAN RIGHTS UPDATES ~~ 1500 PALESTINIAN PRISONERS ON HUNGER STRIKE. Today 17 April 2017, nearly 1500 political prisoners in Israeli jails went on an open-ended hunger strike until their demands of basic humane treatment in prison are met.
+972: Will the NYT start noting the violent pasts of Israeli contributors, too?
There was much uproar from the Israeli government and its supporters following the publication of a Marwan Barghouti op-ed in the New York Times. But where was the outcry when the paper published op-eds by Israelis with violent pasts? By Lisa Goldman
+972: The Palestinian guide to dealing with racist compliments from Israelis
Intentions be damned, when many Jewish Israelis meet Palestinians even their compliments come out laced with passive-aggressive racism half the time. A comprehensive guide for Palestinians. By Rami Younis
ICH: Al-Qaeda Suicide Attack Kills 100+ Children, Women – Whodunit? By Moon Of Alabama [Most those who call themselves Muslims are a bunch of MORONS. They practice obsolete pagan traditions, rituals and dogma, without using their intellect and knowledge to understand and heed the divine laws of the Quran. Divine does not mean human made laws, traditions and rituals. Logical, rational and judicious interpretation and implementation of the divine laws is a human erudite responsibility, not an ignorant blind faith [Quran 2: 43]
This newsletter provides what is missing in the US mainstream media and what the American public needs to learn about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. We hope you never fail to make the connection between APPAF’s reported articles and the cause and effect of the Palestinian problem and the vicious Israeli occupation as its illegitimate heinous perpetrator
It follows the Admonitions of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson:
“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people” – John Adams – Second US President
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Thomas Jefferson
We also invite you to visit www.APPAF.org website, and send us your feedback.
Please don’t forget that Palestine is as much of an American problem as it is a Palestinian and an Israeli problem.
