From The USA

Trump does not understand his job description: Analyst        {Probably but so far not surely, he does not perceive the heavy Zionist influence on American economic-social and political system, nor he has an ironclad plan of how to put “America First Slogan” into practice.}


CONSORTIUM NEWS: The Neocons’ Back-Door to Trump. Exclusive: By enforcing a “group think” calling Iran the chief sponsor of terrorism, Official Washington’s neocons are maneuvering the Trump administration into conforming with Israeli (and Saudi) desires, reports Robert Parry. President Trump’s foreign policy is sliding toward neoconservative orthodoxy on the Middle East because White House insiders are aligning with Israeli-Saudi interests and vowing undying hostility toward Iran, which they falsely insist is the chief sponsor of terrorism.


CONSORTIUM NEWS: Deciphering Trump’s Opaque Foreign Policy. President Trump has set loose several competing – and contradictory – strands of foreign policy with the big question now whether he can avoid tripping himself up, writes ex-British diplomat Alastair Crooke.. It is now a commonplace to note that President Trump is advocating a mercantilist “America First” foreign policy, at odds with the prevailing globalist view of a cosmopolitan, super-culture; that he is intent on dismantling this globalist zeitgeist that he believes imposes moral and cultural norms which have weakened America’s mercantile “animal spirits” and whose embrace of the politics of diversity has sapped the strength from America’s moral and cultural sinews.


The Ugly Truth: Trump’s message to both Israel and Palestinians: I’m in no one’s pocket. Analysis: If Netanyahu thought he had the ‘green light’ to expand settlements and build new ones as soon as Trump took office, the US president has made it clear in recent days that he is the one setting the tone. At this stage, he supports the two-state solution and plans to put a lot of effort into reaching a peace agreement.


The Electronic Intifada: Marco Rubio introduces Senate bill attacking BDS movement By Nora Barrows-Friedman           {That is a stark naked example of the elected US representative of brainless corrupt passionate attachment to Israel against the admonishing of  George Washington as the United States Founding Father}


The Ugly Truth: Is Trump Really pro-Israel, or Is He Just ‘Art of the Deal-ing’ Netanyahu?. ‘I never get too attached to one deal or one approach,’ Trump’s seminal work declares. So which Trump will Netanyahu get when he meets with the president in Washington next week?


The Ugly Truth: Sen. Schumer Attacks Trump for ‘Not Honoring the Six Million Jews Murdered by the Nazis’. Two weeks on, criticism of the White House’s controversial Holocaust Remembrance Day statement continues to grow.


VT: CIA grants “terrorism” medal to Saudi Crown Prince By Kevin Barrett. A medal for actually causing terrorism? Who says the CIA doesn’t have a sense of humor.        {The West historically has been anti original Christianity of Jesus, and consequently anti original Islam of Mohammad. But Sunnis, Shias and Wahhabis are the major sects to breach the Real Islam of Mohammad. It is not unconscionable for the CIA to honor a terrorist pagan Wahhabi un-Islamic Saudi king who supports destructive Al-Qaeda, DESH-ISIS terrorists}


Assad Destroys New World Order Fake News By Jonas E. Alexis. Assad: “If you don’t have the full picture, you cannot make judgment. It’s just propaganda. It’s just fake news.” Mr. Isikoff? …by Jonas E. Alexis. Michael Isikoff is not entirely a bad journalist. To be fair, he has produced a good amount of journalism over the past few years. He was one of the people who exposed the Bush administration’s covert plan in Iraq in Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War.

From ISRAEL

The Ugly Truth: Trump to Israeli paper: Settlements are ‘not a good thing for peace’

From PALESTINE

FOXNEWS: Ambassador Haley opposed Palestinian UN appointment; Sweden calls pick ‘excellent’. Ambassador Haley opposed Palestinian UN appointment; Sweden calls pick … Palestine is a non-member observer state at the United Nations and its … But Trump also indicated in comments to an Israeli newspaper Friday that …       {A taste of anti-Palestinian Zionist political American brainwashing that only can be counteracted by well-informed American public and not by the current empty headed Arafat-Hamas idiotic corrupt Palestinian leadership}


PRESS TV: Israeli land grab in Palestine


The Arab Daily News: Palestine & Middle East conflicts. Ray Hanania’s podcast is an audio version of his column published Jan. 26, 2017 in the Arab News in Saudi Arabia. It discusses the power of movies and how they can significantly alter, change and impact the beliefs of the American people. Why are not stories of Arab, Muslim and Palestinian suffering told to the American people in Hollywood Movies the way the Israelis use movies to distort and exaggerate their own stories. The Israelis lie but all Palestinians need do is tell the truth through film to make a significant difference in the American understanding of the Palestine and Middle East conflict.

COMMENTARIES

JPost: Obama at UN: Israel can’t permanently occupy Palestinian land. By MICHAEL WILNER. 09/20/2016 .Obama addresses UN General Assembly for the final time as US president.        {Palestine for American presidents is all empty “toke fokes”. Read Geoffrey Wawro’s book about Middle East Quick Sand to learn the truth about where our presidents stand and how duped we continually are}


The Ugly Truth: Washington Post Editorial– ‘Trump’s two-year presidency’. ed note–anyone entertaining the notion that a piece like this appearing on the front page of the Washington Post website is just there for filler needs to end their extended stay on Fantasy Island and check back into the Hotel Reality. Furthermore, anyone who thinks that OpEds like this would be appearing in an establishment paper owned lock, stock, and barrel by Judea, Inc if Trump was truly ‘owned by the Jews’ as some ‘experts’ in this movement claim needs to get a stronger prescription for their reading glasses, because what they think they are seeing that leads them to such conclusions is in fact not based in reality.


RUSSIA INSIDER: Shadow War: Pentagon Failed to Disclose Thousands of Lethal Airstrikes. What’s the big deal? They’re just brown people.
Paul Kaiser


The Ugly Truth: Trump’s Awkward Embrace of the Evangelicals – and Why It Rattles the Jews


The Ugly Truth: How Far Will American Jews Go in Resisting Trump? We 19 rabbis didn’t suffer beyond sore wrists from the plastic tie handcuffs. But in our arrest we affirmed we’ll stand with Syrian refugees even when it hurts, as we wish Americans had stood with Jews fleeing Hitler. Rabbi Jeremy Kalmanofsky for Haaretz. When Donald Trump asserts that Americans are pleased with his efforts to “make America safe again” by restricting Muslim travelers and barring Syrian refugees, he might be right.


The Ugly Truth: Trump Reportedly Developing New Middle East Regional Strategy. Approach would include greater involvement by Arab states to foster a new peace process between Israel and the Palestinians, according to New York Times report.        {Trump as a real-estate billionaire can make instant money from peace. With war he has to destroy first and then rebuild which is a time consuming strategy}


The Ugly Truth: Assad: US troops welcome in Syria to fight ‘terrorism’. Syrian leader says Washington can join fight against his enemies if it cooperates with his government and respects country’s sovereignty. ed note–But, but, but…Trump wants to start a WAR with Iran…Trump is ‘owned by Djooz’…We read about it everyday in the ‘alternative’ media…Some REALLY smart people have told us this…
You mean Assad would risk alienating his most powerful ally–Iran–By allowing US troops on Syrian soil to defeat the Israeli-created/Israeli-trained terrorists of ISIS?
Again, at the risk of over-repetition–, INCONCEIVABLE


The Ugly Truth: Syria’s Assad agrees with Trump, says terrorists hiding among Syrian refugees. ed note–So, a Muslim leader of a mostly-Muslim nation who ‘made the list’ of those from whom refugees would be temporarily banned until a better screening process was developed, is agreeing with Trump’s decision.
Now, don’t tell me, let me guess…Assad did this because he is a ‘secret Jew’ working for Israel, and since Trump is ‘owned by the Jews’ and is out to do their bidding–which includes seeing Syria destroyed, either by Mossad created terrorists such as ISIS or throughout overt, outright war–Assad is therefore assisting Trump in this endeavor, even though his making this statement that validated Trump’s recent Executive Order puts at risk the relationship he has with Iran?
As the character Vizzini famously said over and over again in the thoroughly-enjoyable film The Princess Bride, when faced with his plans going awry–
INCONCEIVABLE

“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.
