From The USA

Global Research: United States Says ‘Yes’ to Nuclear Weapons Tests, ‘No’ to a Nuke Ban Treat By John LaForge, Common Dreams


American Free Press: Soft-spoken yet extremely hard-hitting Deanna Spingola is one of the most popular independent voices in the alternative media today. Her radio broadcasts have been “must” listening for truth seekers around the world, and her books in the “Ruling Elite” series have captivated readers with their amazing revelations of many heretofore untold “hidden” facts of history.


American Free Press: 9/11 Destroyed America. In America, telling the truth has become more dangerous than ever … even deadly to one’s career. “It comes at a high cost that hardly any can afford.” Why have we allowed a tiny handful of neoconservatives to destroy multiple Middle Eastern countries, along with whatever civil liberties we once had in America? By Paul Craig Roberts


American Free Press: Jewish Academic Details Role of Israeli Mossad in 9/11. Even now, nearly 16 years after 9/11, discussion of certain aspects of the crime remain taboo in most of the world. One such hot topic is what role Israel, or specifically Mossad, may have played. Now, a Jewish-American academic has reaffirmed Israel’s ties to Sept. 11, much to the chagrin of the global Israeli lobby. By John Friend
An American academic recently revealed some key yet little-known truths about the 9/11 terrorist attacks, sparking outrage and condemnation from pro-Israel groups.
Joel Kovel is a Jewish-American professor emeritus and the author of Overcoming Zionism, a book critical of Zionism that advocates the creation of a secular, non-discriminatory democracy in Israel.


ICH: How Information Is Controlled by Washington, Israel, and Trolls, Leading to Our Destruction By Paul Craig Roberts. The Israel Lobby has made “anti-Semite” into a badge of honor.


The Hill: Russia: Deal reached with US to prevent Syria mid-air collisions
By Max Greenwood


LA Times: Op-Ed France’s election proves it — America is now an example of what not to do. The American electorate in November chose as our president an international laughingstock who is ignorant and impetuous, his chief saving grace being that his extremism is tempered by his incompetence.


The National Interest: What Trump Could Learn from Eisenhower


VT: NEO – InfoWars: More Than Simply Fake By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor. [ Editor’s Note: Gordon takes another opportunity to chew on Alex Jones and his record of media fraud that runs off the charts. This story is not so much that Jones has done what he has, but that all of his media “competition” just sat back and watched it happen without saying a word – except for VT. We got into Jones’ shorts quickly by using the tried-and-true journalism tool of looking into where his money was coming from. It did not take long… We found the usual suspects with very deep pockets, no big surprise there. But as the years went by, and he somehow survived one debacle of a story after another, we began to ask, how could such a “fake news” platform survive without traditional media gutting and goring it in public while millions cheered on? The answer is due again to the usual suspects.

From ISRAEL

Global Research: Syria and the Project to Balkanize the Middle East By Jonathan Cook


The Ugly Truth: Bennett– ‘We should tell the truth: There will be no Palestinian state’


teleSUR: Israel Threatens to Legalize Apartheid, Opens Debate on Becoming Solely Jewish State        {The flagrant stupidity of pagan religious politics}

VT: Alex Jones’ Prison Planet Lies for Israel By Jonas E. Alexis on May 9, 2017
I challenge anyone to read Sara Roy’s scholarly study, Hamas and Civil Society in Gaza: Engaging the Islamist Social Sector, which was published by Princeton University Press in 2011. Roy is not an apologist for Hamas; she is just looking at the issue objectively and from a scholarly point of view.               {Simple: Israel is founded on a religious and political lie against peaceful coexistence and democratic equitable sharing and giving. Unfortunately these are the principles that greedy rapacious western special interests groups and leaders stand against}


VT: Israel’s Counterinsurgency Apologist: Colonel Richard Kemp By Ian Greenhalgh. Richard Kemp starts with the premise that Israel doesn’t commit war crimes and misinterprets international law accordingly.            {Against the prevalent human basic instinct for peaceful survival, Israel managed to exploit the human odd wants and excessive selfish greed for influence and affluence to create a horde of thoughtless corrupt people who are inconsiderate to equitable human rights and social justice}

From PALESTINE

IMEMC: Palestine Today 05 08 2017


HIGHLANDERNEWS: Hamas softens stance on Palestinian border with policy change By Nicholas Frakes        {The ill-informed meagerly educated mainstream media does not not know that if Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish State, they in essence accept the fallacious pagan dogma that Israel’s imaginary man-made god YAHWEH has given all of Palestine to Israel: an unacceptable act of Palestinian national suicide}


Global Research: Palestinians to the Woodshed? Trump Pressures Palestinians to Comply. By Philip Giraldi, The Unz Review {The US will never help Pawould lestinians have an independent state, and unfortunately the traitorous PLO leadership would collude}


Mondoweiss: A Republican plan for peacemaking: ‘break the will’ of the Palestinians and force them to ‘accept defeat’ By Allison Deger {Go for one state solution on the model of the United States of America. Forget your special greedy interests and your gray flannel suits. You then would silence those bought and bossed republicans. Read APPAF’s petition to OBAMA}


MONDOWEISS: Israel’s proof that Marwan Barghouti is a terrorist – a cookie
By Jonathan Ofir


MONDOWEISS: Former prisoner’s book tour includes call to world to ‘stand with’ 1600 Palestinians on hunger strike By Philip Weiss

COMMENTARIES

ICH: Who Is Destroying Syria?. The Arab Gulf States, Israel, and Turkey all prefer anarchy to Assad. By Philip Giraldi. The United Nations Charter, to which all member states are signatories and which prevails over all other treaties and agreements, states that the organization is obligated to “determine the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression” and to take military and nonmilitary action to “restore international peace and security.” The justices at the Nuremberg trials in 1946 concluded that “to initiate a war of aggression … is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”          {The ignorant criminal corrupt and traitorous Arabs are either involved, colluding, or outrageously mum}


The Deep State and the Boomerang Effect By Jerry Kroth, Ph.D. The more you push forward, the greater the pushback. It is curious how mainstream media wonks on Meet the Press or Face The Nation rarely venture into this terrain. For one thing, there is almost no discussion of Israel’s nuclear cruise missiles on three submarines stationed off the coast of Iran. They patrol 24-7, and they can reach any target in Iran in a matter of minutes.[2] Corporate media censorship on this issue is absolute and ironclad. How can one talk about Iran’s development of nuclear weapons—as a boomerang reaction to Israel’s constant nuclear threat—if there is no permissible discussion of Israel’s nuclear threat in the first instance? {The US mainstream media is a corrupt mercenary Zionist bought and bossed media against the US national foreign interests and world peace}


ICH: The CIA has a Long History of Helping to Kill Leaders Around the World By Ewen MacAskill. “The Guardian” – Some of the most notorious of the CIA’s operations to kill world leaders were those targeting the late Cuban president, Fidel Castro. Attempts ranged from snipers to imaginative plots worthy of spy movie fantasies, such as the famous exploding cigars and a poison-lined scuba-diving suit. But although the CIA attempts proved fruitless in the case of Castro, the US intelligence agency has since 1945 succeeded in deposing or killing a string of leaders elsewhere around the world – either directly or, more often, using sympathetic local military, locally hired criminals or pliant dissidents.


ICH: Memory Loss in the Garden of Violence. How Americans Remember (and Forget) Their Wars By John Dower


ANTIWAR: Neocon Anne Applebaum: Give Me Money To Fight ‘Russian Disinformation’!


Huff Post: Donald Trump should Remember Commitment to America and Stay out of Syria By Doug Bandow, Contributor        {It is amazing how much cheap liars are the politicians, for once they win the elections and then they turn against their promises and commitments, and not only they betray their voters but also start to cheat and lie ad lib against their best national interests }


VT: Putin says ‘no force ever existed to conquer Russian people’ By Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor

“Practical Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse”

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.
