The discussions and the maps offered by #Israel delegation to #Russia about the downing of the IL-20 was considered unacceptable & offensive by #Moscow. Moreover, the Israeli delegation complained about" #Iran's influence in #Syri, an argument the Russian have rejected.
#Russia also rejected the #Israeli claim that President Putin refused to talk to the Syrian president Assad. Israel propaganda aim to cover the deterioration of the relationship between #Moscow and #TelAviv
Remember what I said: The downing of the Russian IL-20 is all in #Israel disadvantage.
Now Israel is confused and no longer confident in what it is doing in #Syria and how to run its relationship with #Russia and #Turkey (following the Idlib deal).
#BREAKING #Iran has given ballistic missiles to Shi’ite proxies in #Iraq and is developing the capacity to build more there to deter attacks on its interests in the Middle East and to give it the means to hit regional foes, Iranian, Iraqi and Western sources said.
Reuters: "According to three #Iranian officials, two Iraqi intelligence sources and two Western intelligence sources, Iran has transferred short-range ballistic missiles to allies in Iraq over the last few months." #IranDeal
The Zelzal, Fateh-110 and Zolfaqar missiles in question have ranges of about 200 km to 700 km, putting Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh or the #Israeli city of Tel Aviv within striking distance if the weapons were deployed in southern or western #Iraq.

The One State Reality - #Israeli control of #Palestinian daily life. Palestinians in West Bank must by water from Israel's national water company Mekorot, which appropriates 80% of West Bank water supply. #Apartheid@visualizingpal
Yonatan Shapira-#Israeli AF helicopter pilot: I’ve been active in struggling against #Israeli occupation & #Apartheid. I am a member of Boycott from Within–#Israeli citizens who support the #Palestinian call for #BDS
This is my 4th attempt to break the #Gaza blockade from the sea
#Israeli pilot Shapira message to #Israeli soldiers:
“Refuse to take part in war crimes-Refuse to continue murdering people locked in the worlds' biggest prison-I was once 1 of U & I know that among U there are some who can still think-Refuse to be the guards of the #Gaza ghetto”
#Gaza Freedom flotilla Al Awda pirated in international waters by #Israeli navy who slammed Captain Herman’s head against the wall again & again while threatening to take him to the ship belly & finish him off-a fist in the face of Arne, the old mechanic mondoweiss.net/2018/08/psycho…

"Let’s keep in mind-Had we been #Gazan fishermen or children approaching the #Gaza fence, they could have simply put a bullet in the head of each of us & that’s it"

#TommyRobinson-his many names-crimes: cocaine dealer-sunbed entrepreneur
His 1st conviction was 4 kicking a policeman in the head when intervened to stop him beating up his girlfriend in the street after night out-Then mortgage fraud
#Israeli forces detained @LydiadeLeeuw for questioning immediately after arrival at #BenGurion airport on 20 July
Over four hours, de Leeuw was strip searched, deprived of her phone & other property & denied access to the #Dutch embassy or legal assistance before her deportation
@LydiaDeLeeuw's #Dutch colleague Pauline Overeem experienced much severe treatment. #Israeli forces detained her for 24 hours during which she was “handcuffed & subjected to verbal abuse, including threats that the #Israeli authorities would use force against her”
1. Ahad voted against permission for a new @marksandspencer store because he felt that M&S are "Zionists who kill Palestinians" Dipu is quite unpleasant, he also hounded the members of the Holocaust Memorial Day org so badly, the Jewish members walked out chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-eas…
3) Cllr Aziz urged Jews to “stop drinking Gaza’s blood,”. He has also compared the actions of Israelis towards the Palestinians to the actions of Nazis towards Jews & said Jews in the Middle East could move to the U.S. He is still an @UKLabour Councillor jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/ilyas-aziz-rea…
#Israel closed down the #Palestinian Hind al-Husseini College & Al-Quds University’s College of Art-which are located in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood-after banning an academic conference taking place on Sunday at al-Quds University’s College of Arts & detaining 15 participants
#IDF officer moderately wounded after #Palestinians threw a grenade towards troops near in northern #GazaStrip during violent riots. IDF troops responded by firing towards Palestinians who threw the grenade. Local media say 15yr old Othman Rami Halas was killed by IDF fire
Unconfirmed reports of #Israel(i) airstrikes near al-Bureij refugee camp in the central #GazaStrip
Concerns was raised in a letter published in @guardian after award-winning band @Youngfathers was disinvited from an arts festival in #Germany. #Scottish band was pressured to declare itself non-supporter of pro-#Palestine#BDS movement as a condition of appearing at the festival
Concert organisers, @ruhrtriennale, announced the cancellation saying: “Regrettably, the @Youngfathers have not distanced themselves from the (pro-#Palestinians#BDS human rights movement). We have therefore decided to cancel the concert.”
#Irish Senate supported on Wednesday a legislation prohibiting the import or sale of goods & services produced in occupied territories around the world including #Israeli settlements considered illegal under international law
Miracle in Judeosta
Some people believe in miracles & think world's condemnations & denunciations will save #Palestinian village of Khan Al-Ahmar & its ecological school from jaws of #Israel’s bulldozers-Can such a miracle happen in Judeostan in #WestBank? haaretz.com/opinion/.premi…
The #EU’s reliance on “peace” & “two states” is evidence of negligence, flaccidity or self-deception. Neither “peace” (with the #Palestinians) nor “two states” are in the #Israeli dictionary currently in use. It’s doubtful that they were ever in it
The official proud #Israeli dictionary is made up of definitions that #Europe invented in 15th century & later refined to suit the developing variations of settler colonialism, which expels & murders native populations by the new incoming colonial settlers
#American#Jewish community doesn’t only conceal truth about #Gaza from itself-It lobbies US politicians to do it
The anesthetizing fiction: Yes-#Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005
Israel still controls Gaza in the way a guard controls a prison in which he never actually sets foot
First, #Israel declares parts of #Gaza off-limits to #Gazans. Israel has established —Access Restricted Zone—According to #UN: this restricted area comprise as much as 1/3 of Gaza’s best arable land. People who enter these zones can—& over the years have been—shot
Former #SouthAfrica, whose racism-discrimination-injustice-brutality–all rolled into an #Apartheid ideology-kept trying to market itself as a “democracy”-It succeeded for a while & ultimately crashed despite believing its power was indestructible. Exactly what #Netanyahu is doing
#Israel markets itself as an indispensable ally of the West; “only democracy” in #ME; defender of western values; bulwark against #Iran & #Islam-behaves with impunity & in defiance of all international laws as if the lifeline it enjoys from #America-renders it indestructible
IN 2015, Frank Lowenstein paged through a govt briefing book & noticed a map that he had never seen before. Lowenstein was #Obama Administration’s special envoy on #Israeli-#Palestinian negotiations, a position that exposed him to hundreds of maps of WB.
This is How #Israel Foiled the 2-State Solution:
New map of the occupied #Palestinian#WestBank in the briefing book was different-It showed large swaths of territory that were off limits to #Palestinian development & filled in space between #Jewish settlements & #Jewish outposts
#Palestinian populations were cut off from 1 another & virtually no way to squeeze a viable Palestinian state into remaining areas. When #Jewish settlements, illegal outposts & areas off limits to Palestinians were consolidated, they covered 60% of the occupied #WestBank
