From The USA

The American Conservative: Washington’s Terrorism as Usual. The foreign-policy establishment marks 15 years of failure in the War on Terror. By PHILIP GIRALDI


AlteNet: Compared to Rest of World Americans are Delusional, Prudish, Selfish Religious Nuts: Study By Kali Holloway


AlterNet: Will the Democratic Establishment Continue to Defy Its Base’s Growing Support for Palestinian Human Rights? By Sarah Lazare


OpEdNews: When They Killed JFK, They Killed America By Paul Craig Roberts JFK was assassinated because of anti-communist hysteria in the military and security agencies. The Warren Commission was well aware of this. The coverup was necessary because America was locked into a Cold War with the Soviet Union. To put US military, CIA, and Secret Service personnel on trial for murdering the President of the United States would have shaken the confidence of the American people in their own government. Reprinted from Paul Craig Roberts Website


OpEdNews: Price for Witnessing Against War By Ray McGovern. The funeral for anti-war priest Daniel Berrigan was a reminder of humanity’s need to challenge immoral government actions and the price that one pays for doing so, writes ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern. Reprinted from Consortium News.


ICH: How Obama Made Assassination Formal US Policy. “All Americans should be outraged at the idea that when we’re killing large numbers of people in Muslim countries around the world without knowing who they are, that we somehow are not going to pay a price later?” By Kevin Gosztola


ICHL Now is Not The Time to Surrender to Israel’s Bullying on ‘Anti-Semitism’ By Ilan Pappe. We in the comfort zone of the West should not cower and not give in to false accusations of anti-Semitism by Anglo-Zionists

From ISRAEL

Times of Israel: Israel turns 68 with 8.5 million people, 10 times more than in 1948. 195,000 babies born in last 12 months, CBS statistics show, as population grows by 2.2%           {Due thanks go to Zionism, US Corrupt Politics, Untrustworthy UN, Dimwitted Yasser Arafat , Abbas and their PLO members and gullible alliterate un-Islamic Hamas, but mostly to the Treasonous Pimps of Arab Rulers}


SHOAH: Panama Papers: Zionist King of Saudi Arabia sponsored Naziyahu’s campaign


OpEdNews:L Once, most Jews viewed Israel as the anti-semite’s best friend By Jonathan Cook. In his Holocaust Day speech last week, Yair Golan compared current trends in Israel with Germany in the early 1930s. In today’s Israel, he said, could be recognized “the revolting processes that occurred in Europe … There is nothing easier than hating the stranger, nothing easier than to stir fears and intimidate.”


OpEdNews: On the Misuse Of Anti-Semitism By Lawrence Davidson. While the suggestion of the wholesale transference of Israel to the U.S. is but a fantasy, associating the U.S. and Israel certainly has an underlying logic. The United States is Israel’s major protector and financier. The U.S. Congress treats Israel as a privileged 51st state. And, most of those who emigrate from Israel go to the U.S. Reprinted from To The Point Analyses


ICH: Putin Plays Energy Chess with Netanyahu By F. William Engdahl. If the Russian reports are accurate, it could portend a major new step in Putin energy geopolitics in the Middle East” –

Brandon Martinez / Non-Aligned Media {The most important question that need to be discussed extensively by the mainstream media IF it is honest and responsible is not only by whom it is done, but also why. Saudis as well known American lapdog, could not have participated on their own volition}


SHOAH: SHOAH: BBC Foreknowledge of Collapse of WTC Building 7?


TomDispatch: Tomgram: Noam Chomsky, The Challenges of 2016 By Noam Chomsky


ICH: Saudi Arabia Faces Collapse. America’s Middle Eastern Ally May Not Survive This Latest Oil Crisis. Petroleum accounts for 90 percent of the country’s economy. A depressed market has exposed its fragile fundamentals
By Vijay Prashad


ICH: Aleppo Doctor Attacks Western Media for Bias, Censorship and Lies By Silvia Cattori. Dr Nabil Antaki could have abandoned Aleppo to ensure his own safety. Instead he decided to remain and to serve the besieged people of his City, working with various local charities. Above all, he wanted to bear witness to the destruction caused by Western support for the foreign armed groups who have been systematically destroying Syria and terrorizing its people for the last 5 years.


ICH: What John Kerry Really Did in Vietnam By Jeffrey St. Clair. With John Kerry currently in full Henry Kissinger regalia, parading around the Middle East, brow-beating the Palestinians and their allies in the region and Europe into signing onto a deeply flawed peace accord that primarily serves Israeli and American interests, it may prove a useful exercise to inspect the curriculum vitae of this putative peace-maker, especially during those formative years when the Secretary of State first carved out his name in the jungles of Southeast Asia. Though Kerry has a reputation as an anti-war activist, his brief tenure in Vietnam and Cambodia was notable both for acts of casual savagery and his striking lack of contrition for his own participation in atrocities that in a rational society might easily be classified as war crimes.–JSC .

“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.
