From The USA

VT: Dumb and Dumber: How Zionist lies about Syria and fake news will make you laugh again By Jonas E. Alexis. The Ayatollah Khomeini predicted in 1979 that “international Zionism” seeks “to swallow up the material resources of the countries it has succeeded in dominating,” and it “exploits the oppressed people of the world by means of the large-scale propaganda campaigns…”


VT: RT’s Love Affair With Trump and Fakery in Full Swing By Ian Greenhalgh
[Editor’s note: There was a time when RT produced some good material, including some good work on 9-11, but long gone are the days when they can be trusted, they have become just another part of the MSM, controlled by the same people as all the rest and playing the role of controlled opposition. It is obvious that RT has been deeply infiltrated and co-opted by Israeli assets, what is less clear is why this situation has been allowed to exist for quite some time, at least a year, maybe two. The current state of RT is damaging to Russia on many levels but sadly it seems that the Kremlin fails to grasp just how damaging it is to continue to allow this state of affairs to exist at what is a state funded broadcaster.

VT: Abandon hope all ye who enter here – Dante’s Divine Comedy (Part I)
By Paul Fitzgerald. Proof no longer seems to matter in the rush to further transform the world into Dante’s vision of Hell. Accusations made by anonymous sources, spurious sources and outright frauds have become enough. Washington’s paranoia and confusion bear an uncanny resemblance to the final days of the Third Reich, when the leadership in Berlin became completely unglued.


VT: 2013 Daily Mail Article “US to Stage Chemical Warfare Attack…Blame Assad” Censored By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor


Global Research: Foreign Policy and “False Flags”: Trump’s “War and Chocolate” Reality Show By Prof Michel Chossudovsky


ICH: The Price of Resistance By Chris Hedges. In the conflicts I covered as a reporter in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and the Balkans, I encountered singular individuals of varying creeds, religions, races and nationalities who majestically rose up to defy the oppressor on behalf of the oppressed. Some of them are dead. Some of them are forgotten. Most of them are unknown. Any act of rebellion, no matter how few people show up or how heavily it is censored, chips away at corporate power.        {Will the Arabs ever hone their brain and heed the lesson of history?     What a humiliating divisive destructive shame they drowned themselves in now!}


ICH: Despotism & Democracy. Producer: Encyclopaedia Britannica Films – 1946. Measures how a society ranks on a spectrum stretching from democracy to despotism. Explains how societies and nations can be measured by the degree that power is concentrated and respect for the individual is restricted. Where does your community, state and nation stand on these scales?


The Daily Beast: John McCain: Rand Paul ‘Is Now Working for Vladimir Putin’    {Is John McCain, said to be the sponsor of ISIS and Daesh, fit to be a US senator?
}

by Henry Meyer

From ISRAEL

The Ugly Truth: Israeli officials are missing Obama earlier than expected


The Ugly Truth: The Dershowitz question    {That is the real rubbish, blind ignorance and cowardice of the so called western intelligentsia when it comes to free speech, democracy, Israel, Judaism, and Zionism. Human logical, rational, analytical intellect and Judicious knowledge tell us what is right and not. One does not have to agree to Atzmon on everything he says but it is worth it to listen to his views. He comes from Jewish roots and knows what Judaism, Zionism and Israel are all about}


The Ugly Truth: Trump administration says Iran complying with nuclear deal. {It is time for the American public that the American republic was not founded on the principles of defending Judaism, Zionism, the Neocons and Israel. It is founded on the principles of a government of the people, by the people, and of the people. Meaning for the sole interests of the people. ne has to read what the founding fathers said and the constitution says in this regard }


The Daily Mail: Syrian UN envoy claims Israel is directly supporting ISIS by bombing regime sites            {Of course we don’t have to believe him. He is a Syrian Arab and a Muslim but most importantly he is against Desh_ISIS, Israel and Saudi Arabia our most loyal and cherished allies in the Middle East }


Press TV: Israel approves 212 new settler units in East al-Quds {Rejoice you M.. F.. 320 million impotent, corrupt, divisive, pagan Arabs waiting for pagan god to solve your problems}

From PALESTINE

PRESS TV: UN says closely monitoring mass hunger strike in Israeli jails. The United Nations says it is keeping a close eye on the situation of more than a thousand Palestinian prisoners, who have gone on hunger strike honoring a call by a fellow inmate. Unprecedented in scale, the protest action involves a reported number of 1,500 prisoners. It started on Monday to force Israeli prison authorities to provide more humane conditions for the inmates

COMMENTARIES

VT: US Embassy in London insists on interviewing three month old terror suspect for visa By Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor [ Editor’s Note: This boggles the mind in its stupidity; that no one in the US Embassy system wanted to draw attention to themselves by interfering in standard procedures. So a 3-month-old baby had to be brought down to London to be “interviewed” about poor grandpa mistakenly checking ‘yes’ instead of ‘no’ on the baby’s travel visa form about engaging in terrorism. Sometimes our hunting down bad government is a long drawn out process of digging into dirty laundry to find what has been hidden there. But I chose this for publication for its wonderful simplicity


Global Research: Khan Sheikhoun, Syria: The Nerve Agent Attack that Did Not Occur By Dr. Theodore Postol, Washington’s Blog {Politics is an old dishonorable profession of dangerous liars, impostors, and climbers. And the US provides the proof, the stark naked whole proof and nothing but the proof, so help us God. Wake up America!}

“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.
