The Truth of God and Our Lord Jesus Christ

Special Palestine Cry Blog articles: The Catholic Creed: The meaning of the Pasch of Christians.


For as it was not possible that the man who had once for all been conquered, and who had been destroyed through disobedience, could reform himself, and obtain the prize of victory; and as it was also impossible that he could attain to salvation who had fallen under the power of sin,-the Son effected both these things, being the Word of God, descending from the Father, becoming incarnate, stooping low, even to death, and consummating the arranged plan of our salvation, upon whom [Paul], exhorting us unhesitatingly to believe, again says, "Who shall ascend into heaven? that is, to bring down Christ; or who shall descend into the deep? that is, to liberate Christ again from the dead." Then he continues, "If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved." And he renders the reason why the Son of God did these things, saying, "For to this end Christ both lived, and died, and revived, that He might rule over the living and the dead." And again, writing to the Corinthians, he declares, "But we preach Christ Jesus crucified; "and adds, "The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? " - St. Irenaeus, Against Heresies, Book III, Chapter XVIII, Section 2.

The Crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ, Mary and John and the women at the foot of the Cross

Matthew 27:45 Now from the sixth hour, there was darkness over all the earth, until the ninth hour.

Origen tell us this darkness was only in Palestine, and the neighbouring countries: for as to the words, over the whole earth, or over the whole land, we find one kingdom or empire, by a common way of speaking, called the whole earth, or the whole world. As to the cause of the obscuration of the sun; and secondly, as to the extent of its darkness. Origen tells us that the darkness was partial, and confined to Judea and the neighbouring countries, as the darkness of Egypt was only perceived in that country, and not in Gessen, where the children of Israel were. Saint Jerome tells us that the obscurity was caused by the rays of the sun being suddenly withdrawn by divine power, as was the case in Egypt. The darkness in Egypt during the Passover of Moses was due to God's protection withdrawn from that land at that time. The darkness when Christ was Crucified for us is the judgement of God upon His Son Jesus Christ, in our place. For Jesus Christ knew NO sin. He never sinned, nor could He ever.

The meaning of the Pasch of Christians.

The Book of Wisdom, Chapter 17, describes the devils and demons thrown back upon the Egyptians when the Israelites under Moses were brought out of Egypt by God for God’s purposes (to prepare a place for the Crucifixion of Our Lord for the Redemption of the whole world of those who are saved). In the same way the same false gods and goddesses that the Egyptians served and which in so doing were the reason the Egyptians sacrificed their sons and daughters to the devils and demons behind the false gods/goddesses were the spirits that killed the Egyptian children that perished when the Israelites were brought out of Egypt. God does not murder children, period. The angel of death which destroyed in Egypt was one of the fallen spirits. God did not cause any of the fallen spirits to hurt anyone. God allowed the fallen spirits to do what it is their nature do to when He brought the Israelites out of the gates of hell which was Egypt. The children below the age of reason that died went to be with God for eternity, they will be resurrected with the just at the Second Coming of Christ. This principle of God allowing the innocent to be afflicted along with guilty finds its ultimate fulfillment in Christ’s singular and only salvific Kenosis. Jesus Christ committed no sin, not ever nor could He, and was and is and only could be utterly and absolutely and completely innocent of any and all wrongdoing and sin by His very nature as the Holy and True God. The guiltless sacrificed by His own will for the guilty. Even when the innocent are afflicted by the actions and evils instigated by the fallen spirits in the world, the innocent are not possessed by those fallen spirits. The principle of all being afflicted by the evil set loose upon the world for its unrepentant sin will occur when the universal plagues are let loose upon the world. See Apocalypse 16

The principle of our always, for our part, protecting children is given us by Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 18

1 At *that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying: Who, thinkest thou, is the greater in the kingdom of heaven?

2 *And Jesus calling unto him a little child, set him in the midst of them,

3 And said: Amen I say unto you, *unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, he is the greater in the kingdom of heaven.

5 And he that shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me.

10 Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, *that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.

The principle of our ONLY worshipping the True God, the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit is given first in the historical truth of the Garden of Eden when Christ, who is the Tree of Life commands the first man and his wife, Adam and Eve to not have anything to do with the tree of the knowledge of good and evil which is Satan, the first fallen angel, nor with any of the fallen angels with Satan. Assisi of Babylon/Vatican/Rome is absolute and complete violation of that principle and is the Great Apostasy in full blown Satanic evil. Have nothing to do with the Vatican or suffer its eternal damnation in hell with it. The devil and demon worshipping pagans and the perfidious deicidal Jews are not ever any part of the Salvific action of Christ upon Golgotha/Calvary. Individual pagans and Jews if they repent of their not confessing Jesus Christ as the Immortal Son of God become flesh for our sake and sacrificed for our salvation and who confess publicly their sin of devil and demon worshipping and perfidy and deicide and who beg the Lord of all, the Lord God, the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit for forgiveness of their horrid and abominable sins, can and will be forgiven if they do so now in this life and will enter into the only path of salvation there is as dictated by God Himself. The Church, all the faithful – there is no other meaning acceptable to God for the word Church, is commanded by God to not have anything to do with the Apostasy.

Book of Wisdom, Chapter 17

1 For thy judgments, O Lord, are great, and thy words cannot be expressed: therefore undisciplined souls have erred.

2 For while the wicked thought to be able to have dominion over the holy nation, they themselves being fettered with the bonds of darkness, and a long night, shut up in their houses, lay there exiled from the eternal providence.

3 And while they thought to lie hid in their obscure sins, they were scattered under a dark veil of forgetfulness, being horribly afraid and troubled with exceeding great astonishment.

4 For neither did the den that held them, keep them from fear: for noises coming down troubled them, and sad visions appearing to them, affrighted them.

5 And no power of fire could give them light, neither could the bright flames of the stars enlighten that horrible night.

6 But there appeared to them a sudden fire, very dreadful: and being struck with the fear of that face, which was not seen, they thought the things which they saw to be worse:

7 And the delusions of their magic art were put down, and their boasting of wisdom was reproachfully rebuked.

8 For they who promised to drive away fears and troubles from a sick soul, were sick themselves of a fear worthy to be laughed at.

9 For though no terrible thing disturbed them: yet being scared with the passing by of beasts, and hissing of serpents, they died for fear: and denying that they saw the air, which could by no means be avoided.

10 For whereas wickedness is fearful, it beareth witness of its condemnation: for a troubled conscience always forecasteth grievous things.

11 For fear is nothing else but a yielding up of the succours from thought.

12 And while there is less expectation from within, the greater doth it count the ignorance of that cause which bringeth the torment.

13 But they that during that night, in which nothing could be done, and which came upon them from the lowest and deepest hell, slept the same sleep.

14 Were sometimes molested with the fear of monsters, sometimes fainted away, their soul failing them: for a sudden and unlooked for fear was come upon them.

15 Moreover if any of them had fallen down, he was kept shut up in prison without irons.

16 For if any one were a husbandman, or a shepherd, or a labourer in the field, and was suddenly overtaken, he endured a necessity from which he could not fly.

17 For they were all bound together with one chain of darkness. Whether it were a whistling wind, or the melodious voice of birds, among the spreading branches of trees, or a fall of water running down with violence,

18 Or the mighty noise of stones tumbling down, or the running that could not be seen of beasts playing together, or the roaring voice of wild beasts, or a rebounding echo from the highest mountains: these things made them to swoon for fear.

19 For the whole world was enlightened with a clear light, and none were hindered in their labours.

20 But over them only was spread a heavy night, an image of that darkness which was to come upon them. But they were to themselves more grievous than the darkness.

Außenminister Kurz übt scharfe Kritik an den neuerlichen Todesurteilen in Ägypten

Sebastian KurzRechtsstaatliche Prinzipien müssen eingehalten werden
Wien, 29. April 2014 – Ein Strafgericht in der ägyptischen Stadt Minya verurteilte 683 Anhänger der Moslem-Bruderschaft, inklusive deren Oberhaupt, Mohamed Badie, zum Tode. In einem separaten Verfahren bestätigte das Gericht außerdem 37 der 529 Todesurteile, die es Ende März ebenfalls gegen Anhänger der Moslem-Bruderschaft verhängte. In beiden Prozessen wurde den Beschuldigten vorgeworfen, Polizei-Einrichtungen angegriffen und Polizisten ermordet zu haben. „Wir lehnen die Todesstrafe ab und verurteilen die neuen Todesurteile in Ägypten auf das Schärfste. Die Verhängung von Kollektivstrafen missachtet alle rechtsstaatlicher Grundprinzipien“, so Außenminister Sebastian Kurz dazu.
Österreich unterstützt die Bemühungen Ägyptens in Richtung Demokratisierung und seinen Kampf gegen den Terror und erkennt das Recht des ägyptischen Volks, seinen Weg eigenständig zu gehen. Gleichzeitig wird aber erneut betont, dass Ägypten international umfassende Verpflichtungen zum Schutz der Menschenrechte eingegangen ist, die durch die neue Verfassung bekräftigt wurden. „Urteile wie diese, die geplante Anti-Terrorgesetzgebung, der mangelnde Schutz der Medienfreiheit und das vorläufige Verbot aller Aktivitäten der Jugendbewegung des 6. April schaden dem Vertrauen der Bevölkerung und der internationalen Gemeinschaft in diesen notwendigen und schwierigen Prozess“, so Sebastian Kurz weiter. Österreich fordert die ägyptischen Behörden auf, den Weg, der hier beschritten wurde, zu überdenken und die Urteile aufzuheben und hofft auf einen friedlichen Ablauf der für 26. bis 27. Mai geplanten Präsidentenwahlen sowie die Einhaltung internationaler Standards.

Mass Imposition Of Death Penalty in Egypt Outrageous

egypt death sentenceGENEVA – 29 April 2014 – UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay on Tuesday strongly condemned the shocking imposition of the death penalty on 683 individuals in Egypt yesterday after mass trials that she said clearly breached international human rights law.
“It is outrageous that for the second time in two months, the Sixth Chamber of the Criminal Court in Al-Minya has imposed the death sentence on huge groups of defendants after perfunctory trials,” she said.
“In defiance of worldwide pleas for Egypt to respect its human rights obligations after 529 people were sentenced to death in March by the same court, hundreds now face a similar fate at the hands of a judicial system where international fair trial guarantees appear to be increasingly trampled upon.”
“It is high time that Egypt takes its human rights commitments seriously,” Pillay added, noting in particular that Egypt has ratified the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
According to information received, the 683 defendants were charged with killing a policeman and breaking into the Edwa police station in Al-Minya on 14 August 2013, among other charges. As in the previous cases, the exact charges against each defendant are not clear, given that they were not individually read out in court.
“The presumption of innocence is fundamental to the protection of human rights in a criminal trial,” Pillay said.
“It imposes on the prosecution the burden of proving the charge against each accused and it guarantees that no guilt can be presumed until the charge against him or her has been proved beyond reasonable doubt.”
“Instead of imposing death sentences wholesale, courts must ensure that accused individuals enjoy fair trials, including the benefit of doubt,” Pillay stressed.
Of the 529 people who were sentenced to death by the Sixth Chamber of the Criminal Court in Al-Minya on 24 March for killing a policeman and on various other charges, 37 had their sentences upheld by the court yesterday, while others reportedly received reduced sentences of 25 years, in itself excessive, and were fined EGP 20,000.
“The death penalty can only be applied for the most serious crimes and after the most stringent trial safeguards,” the High Commissioner said. “This has clearly not been the case in these two trials before the Al-Minya criminal court. A mass trial of hundreds of people, rife with procedural irregularities is simply not good enough for imposition of the death

Egypt: Shocking Death Sentences Follow Sham Trial

A day after more than 500 supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi were sentenced to death, and two days after Barak Obama’s administration has approved the shipment of Apache attack helicopters to the military junta that rules Egypt, an Egyptian court has opened another mass trial and 683 more Brotherhood supporters were sentenced to death among them Mohammed Badie, the Muslim Brotherhood.
Minya, Egypt – Agencies – Egypt has opened another mass trial of suspects with 683 defendants facing charges of murder and sabotage, including the Muslim Brotherhood’s top leader.
The defendants sentenced were accused of involvement in the murder and attempted murder of policemen in the southern Minya province last August.
A final capital punishment ruling was also handed down for 37 others, part of a judgment on 529 Muslim Brotherhood supporters who were recommended for a death sentence last month.
The remaining 492 death sentences have now been commuted to life in prison.
Seeking the death penalty for Mohammed Badie, the Brotherhood’s general guide, is certain to raise tension in Egypt, which has been gripped by turmoil since the army removed the Brotherhood from power last year.
Proceedings were held in the southern city of Minya, where just the day before the same court handed down death sentences to 529 supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi over a deadly attack on a police station. That verdict followed a rushed, two-day trial that drew wide public and international criticism.
Only 60 of the 683 defendants were in the dock on Tuesday. The rest are being tried in absentia. The Brotherhood’s spiritual guide did not appear in court, with authorities citing security reasons.
apacheOn April 23 2014, Obama’s administration has approved the shipment of Apache attack helicopters to the military junta that rules Egypt. The decision was communicated to the military regime April 22 by defense secretary Chuck Hagel in a phone call to the Egyptian minister of defense, General Sedki Sobhy.
Hagel also told his Egyptian counterpart that US Secretary of State John Kerry will soon certify to Congress that “Egypt is sustaining the strategic relationship and is meeting its obligations under the 1979 Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty.” These certifications are required under US law to permit the continuation of US military aid.
The ten Apache helicopters are “in support of Egypt’s counterterrorism operations in the Sinai,” according to a Pentagon press release, but there is no restriction on their use once the weapons are in Egyptian hands. The murderous gunships can be redeployed from strafing restive Bedouin tribesmen along the border with Israel to massacring demonstrators in cities like Cairo, Alexandria and Suez.
The US will continue to withhold certain weapons, including F-16 fighter jets, M-1 tanks and Harpoon missiles, whose shipment has been suspended since the July 2013 coup that overthrew the elected president of Egypt, Mohammed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Death Sentences Breach International Law
Earlier, the UN human rights commissioner has condemned an Egyptian court’s decision to sentence to death 528 supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi.
A spokesman for Navi Pillay said the “cursory mass trial” was “rife with procedural irregularities” and breached international human rights law.
On March 22, 2014, the criminal court in Minya, Egypt sentenced 529 people to death. It was the largest mass death sentence in recent years anywhere, in a trial lacking basic due process protections.
The vast majority of defendants were tried in absentia, took place in under an hour. The prosecution did not put forward evidence implicating any individual defendant, even though it had compiled significant evidence during its investigations and the court prevented defense lawyers from presenting their case or calling witnesses, three of the defense lawyers told Human Rights Watch. A second summary session was held two days later solely to announce the verdict.
It’s shocking even amid Egypt’s deep political repression that a court has sentenced 529 people to death without giving them any meaningful opportunity to defend themselves. The Minya court failed to carry out its most fundamental duty to assess the individual guilt of each defendant, violating the most basic fair trial right. These death sentences should be immediately quashed.Human Rights Watch.

Kerry: Israel Risks Becoming Apartheid State

John KerryUpdate: After a day of outraged responses, US Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday that he had chosen the wrong word when describing Israel’s potential future as an “apartheid state” if it didn’t reach a peace deal with the Palestinians.
“I will not allow my commitment to Israel to be questioned by anyone, particularly for partisan, political purposes, so I want to be crystal clear about what I believe and what I don’t believe,” Kerry said after US lawmakers and pro-Israel groups criticized him, with some demanding his resignation or at least an apology.
US Secretary of State John Kerry warned foreign leaders and experts mainly from the US, Western Europe, Russia, and Japan on Friday saying that israel will risk becoming an apartheid state or losing its Jewish identity if a peace accord with the Palestinians is not reached in the near future. Kerry’s comments were published on Sunday by The Daily Beast news website.
The secretary of state said that if Israel doesn’t make peace soon, it could become an apartheid state, like the old South Africa.
“A two-state solution will be clearly underscored as the only real alternative. Because a unitary state winds up either being an apartheid state with second class citizens, or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state,” Kerry told the group of senior officials and experts from the U.S., Western Europe, Russia, and Japan. “Once you put that frame in your mind, that reality, which is the bottom line, you understand how imperative it is to get to the two state solutions, which both leaders, even yesterday, said they remain deeply committed to.”
According to the 1998 Rome Statute, the “crime of apartheid” is defined as “inhumane acts… committed in the context of an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination by one racial group over any other racial group or groups and committed with the intention of maintaining that regime.” The term is most often used in reference to the system of racial segregation and oppression that governed South Africa from 1948 until 1994.
Earlier in April, Kerry urged Israeli and Palestinian leaders to prevent the negotiations from collapsing, saying it was regrettable that both sides have taken steps recently that are not helpful in promoting peace and ending the decades-long conflict between the two sides.

The US is Always Looking To Foment Wars

American soldiersThe United States government is always looking to foment wars. We can see this in the way the State was formed, how treaties were crumpled so that new aggressions could be launched. We can see this in the endless wars of this government, as well as in the “War on” the prevalent illegal disease called Drug Addiction: brought to you by the United States government who has been continually implicated in the lucrative Drug Trade – though, they don’t report on such things.
The United States government is always looking to foment wars. The Entertainment System of this country floods our eyes with wars, with violence, with murder, with destruction. (..Ever heard the saying “Monkey See, Monkey Do”?) The News System of this country reports on violence like, all things being equal, it would prefer to gorge on blood.
The United States government is always looking to foment wars. Wars with Muslims, wars with Iraqis, Vietnamese, Pakistanis, Chileans, Venezuelans, Cubans, Russians, Somalis, the Black Panther Party, Communists, Socialists, the list goes on and on.
The United States government is always looking to foment wars. Why won’t anyone here say it? Why, in this country are we so willing to gloss over the layers of criminality we are surrounded with? Why does anyone have any trust in this government at all? Why do the “free-est” people in the world speak the LEAST truth?
The United States government discusses proposals about militarizing the border with Mexico even more, adding tens of billions of dollars. They are looking to move in the guns and the jeeps, to pay for bullets, to erect walls and spy towers. They are looking to draw a line of guns across a border they made up, a border that in actual reality doesn’t even exist: just ask an Indigenous Person whose historical memory stretches back more than 150 years! Who knows how the Land stretches, how it was not so long ago, knows how deeply peace can live in the Desert here.
But yes, the United States government is always looking to build upon its destruction, to create destruction upon destruction, and simultaneously flood us with messages that it’s about Freedom, Democracy, Justice, and Security.
The people of the United States are some of the least politically sophisticated people in the world, living under one of the most politically sophisticated governments: this is not a coincidence. The United States government is well-known for its brutality (though you’ll rarely hear it talked about) and it appears to be an addiction: it enacts this brutality far and wide, on many levels. Many people in the United States live in a constant state of anxiety and fear, and they put their trust in a warmonger, and they make agreements like: it’s preferable to be entertained than to create healthy societies.
Sometimes in this country I just feel like screaming: Look at yourselves! Do you call that Life? What is the trade that makes this hell worth it? I want to scream: Don’t you care about anybody, anything?
I see that people care but the impotence with which people in the United States live their lives begs to be analyzed. I hope people from throughout the world will speak up on the United States government and society. Because it’s a sickness, and it needs to stop spreading.
Conscious people in the United States need to start living with our hearts instead of our heads, and – get outside the colonial mentality! It doesn’t all just boil down into dollars and cents. The alternatives to the hell of the United States are plentiful, probably endless. We don’t need to support this tyrant people call a democracy, hand on their hearts, and the rockets’ red glare. We do not need to support this government.
We need to create lots of alternatives that live the kind of lives that people should live and understand that we are ALL connected.
We need to make healing a priority and find new ways of “leadership” that doesn’t disempower and alienate so many of us.
We need to deal with the brutal colonial history of this country and support Indigenous rights, vision, and struggles: this is an absolute necessity to dealing with truth. Break with the system, go with the people all over the world who want to be free. Author of the article: Chelli Stanley

Palestinians Demand the Execution of Pollard In Response to Kerry

JORDAN-US-PALESTINIAN-ISRAEL-DIPLOMACYPalestinians are demanding the execution of the American jew Jonathan Pollard for passing military and atomic secrets to israel while working as a civilian intelligence analyst. The history of the Americans has the known episode of executing traitors like Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were sentenced to death for their roles in passing atomic secrets to the Soviets. The secrets which Pollard passed to israel were far mote than what the Rosenbergs passed to the Soviets. Pollard stole and passed everything that was not bolted down to israel.
Palestinians were shocked about the latest news about John Kerry’s “deal” based on heaping the release of the traitor and spy Pollard on the back of Palestinians, using our cause of Nakba and legitimate rights of building a Palestinian State in our own homeland and ending the longest zionist jewish occupation, to release a traitor who sold the USA to Israel.
Palestinians reacted immediately, asking for the execution of Pollard by implementing the death penalty as is foreseen in American law  against this traitorous spy even if the so-called “peace negotiations” between the zionists and the PA would collapse. The dirty deal foisted upon these negotiations by the zionist traitor Kerry, a war criminal and former member of the US military who is supported by AIPAC and many jewish senators against the will of the American people, who see his collaboration with the Pollard cause as a crime and a betrayal to USA and all Americans. Kerry’s betrayal of his country’s interests is seen as a “reward” given by Kerry to israel for the continuation of the theft of the Palestinian land and expanding the colonial settlements in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.
screen shot from CNN
Screen shot from CNN video
Palestinians call upon American citizens to march against the traitorous deal of Kerry across the streets at the major cities and in front of Pollard’s jail, to force their government to stop this most shameful deal in the history of America.
We Palestinians are not honored by the news of release of the traitor Pollard, and we see that Kerry and his government and zionist israel are directing the Palestinian cause and the so-called “peace process” in the wrong direction, subverting it to achieve the goals of zionism while at the same time insulting and betraying the American people for to release a spy who did them great damage.
We Palestinians do not rely on the so-called “peace negotiations” under American-zionist auspices, we even see any “agreements” coming out of this that may be signed by the so-called “Palestinian Authority”, Israel and USA as neither legitimate nor binding. Israel and the USA are negotiating with the PA headed by “President” Abbas, whose term of presidency expired in January 2009.
Below follows the reaction by of American citizen Chelli Stanley to Kerry’s traitorous deal to release Pollard.
chilli copyWhat would possess the United States government to release Jonathan Pollard, a U.S. intelligence agent who was convicted as spying on the U.S. for Israel, as part of the negotiations for “Peace” with Palestine?
Apparently the White House has not indicated how Pollard’s release would even factor into these “Peace” negotiations, though various news agencies report it being used as a carrot the United States government might use to keep the “Peace” negotiations from falling apart.
This is just another indication of the sham-circus being paraded before us suggesting that “Peace” rides on negotiations between three corrupt governments: the United States, Israel, and the Palestinian Authority. While these governments consider Pollard’s release, Palestinians continued to be murdered, continue to live under hellish circumstances, continue to struggle for their Lands and their communities, and continue to carry on the world-renowned struggle for liberation from the colonial hell that they have been forced to face.
While thousands of Palestinian prisoners languish in brutal conditions for being Palestinians, the wise United States government thinks releasing Pollard might help keep the “Peace” negotiations alive. What good has the United States government ever done in Palestine? This question begs an answer. For all its supposed help at creating “Peace,” the situation in Palestine has only gotten worse and worse and more and more brutal as a result.
The “Peace” negotiations between the three corrupt governments are reportedly in “jeopardy” because the Israeli government refuses to stop building new settlements and release Palestinian prisoners, yet the United States government does not consider cutting back the millions of dollars it sends Israel everyday. No, instead it considers giving Israel a great reward, something which the Israeli government and settler establishment have long been calling for. It’s being suggested in the media that releasing Pollard might be used in exchange for Israel agreeing to release Palestinian prisoners and doing (yet another) “settlement freeze”, things which Israel had already agreed to do (then backed out of) and which have very little to do with the actual negotiations themselves. Further, both of these things are issues that Israel has historically backed out of on any pretense of any whim anyway!
The majorities of Palestinians don’t even believe in, nor want these sham “Peace” talks between the three corrupt “savior” governments to continue anyway. Why would they? None of the governments ever considers grassroots Palestinian voices in these negotiations, and none of the “negotiations” initiated by the United States government throughout the years have brought anything resembling Peace to Palestine. Given this reality, the United States government continues to make known its real intentions and its real priorities in this situation.
Some of the arguments Israeli government officials and settlers have made for years concerning Pollard’s release have to do with the harshness of Pollard’s sentence considering the reality that Israel and the United States are such great friends. It seems this great friendship supersedes all things. Sham-circus aside, this “great friendship” between two brutal colonial governments is the bottom line.

Alleged Fraudster Visits Salzburg Police, Arrested

AP – A German sought by authorities for alleged fraud has been arrested in Austria — after dropping into a police station to ask officers whether he was under investigation.
Police in Salzburg said the 59-year-old man walked into a police station in the city on Friday night. Spokesman Anton Schentz told the Austria Press Agency on Saturday the man told officers he just wanted to check that they had “nothing on him.”
Officers checked their records and found a recent arrest warrant from a Vienna court on four counts of fraud and embezzlement. Police say the man, whose name wasn’t released, was taken to a Salzburg prison.

Promoting a Cheap, Fake Israeli-Palestinian State in Zurich

ODS_2014_ZH_conferenceAt a time when I consider myself one of the most vocal opponents of so-called “peace negotiations”, the “Oslo Agreement” and all new “agreements” that may be signed by the so-called Palestinian “president” Mahmoud Abbas, by the so-called “Palestinian Authority” which does not represent the Palestinian people but is merely a branch of the Fatah movement.
At a time when most Palestinians see the so-called “peace negotiations” as illegitimate and illegal under Palestinian laws and also under international laws, accords and traditions because they are taking place under a “president” whose presidency expired in January, 2009 but is imposing himself and his coterie of thieves on Palestinians and Palestine, claiming that he represents us while imposing the “peace negotiations” which only favour the zionists, forcing upon us a “negotiator”, a narcissist called Saeb Erekat who since over 23 years has been extremely successful at imposing the American-zionist-western will on Palestinians, against our interests, even going back to them to sell them Palestine as if it were his own property in instances where the “agreements” were deemed not favorable enough to the zionists. So, common Palestinians saw their property, farms, cows etc. sold behind their backs while the Palestinians themselves are reduced to slavery, thrown into jail, murdered or exiled while Abbas, Erekat and their henchmen get rich.
That is why I, like most Palestinians, consider any agreement signed by “President” Abbas, israel and the United States is illegitimate and non-binding to any Palestinian, in the future or even tomorrow.
Given this factual background I was very surprised to hear that a group of individuals, unknown to Palestinians and even to israelis, people who have never played any role in liberating Palestine and who neither have influence on the public opinion in Palestine or israel, are presenting themselves as savers of Palestine as well as all Palestinians and jews by promoting a hilarious project, raising funds from here and there using the Palestinian suffering and organizing a conference under the banner of “One Democratic State in Palestine-Israel”.
The conference of these people is supposed to be held in Zürich on 17-18 May, they are apparently selling tickets for their show at the entrance of the venue, apparently for 35 to 70 Euro (or perhaps dollars?), what is not clear in their advertising material.

What is important to consider in relation to such a ”state”, product of the of imagination, superstitions, illusions and hunger of money of these people is that it nests exclusively in their minds and that nothing will come out of it, as the main talent of these people unknown to either Palestinians or israelis, appears to be in the commercial realm, where it is important to known how to make a quick buck off of the aspirations of others.

Further information about the 35-Euro “state” of these talented quick-buckers can be gathered from the advert shown below.

دولة فلسطينية – إسرائيلية بثمن بخس في زيورخ
في الوقت الذي أعتبر فيه نفسي واحدة من أشد المعارضين لما يسمى ب “مفاوضات السلام” و “اتفاق أوسلو” وجميع “الاتفاقات” الجديدة التي قد توقع من قبل ما يسمى ب “الرئيس” الفلسطيني محمود عباس، و”السلطة الفلسطينية” وكلاهما لا يمثلان الشعب الفلسطيني وإنما يمثلان فرعا من فروع حركة فتح
وفي الوقت الذي يرى فيه الفلسطينيون أن ما يسمى ب “مفاوضات السلام” إنما هي مفاوضات غير شرعية, وغير قانونية بموجب القوانين الفلسطينية, وأيضا في إطار القوانين الدولية، لكونها تجري في ظل “رئيس” انتهت ولايته الرئاسية منذ أعوام, وتحديدا في يناير 2009, ومع هذا فما زال يفرض نفسه وزمرته على فلسطين والفلسطينيين دون حياء أو وازه من ضمير. مدعيا تمثيلهم ومحاولا فرض “مفاوضات سلام” جهنمية عليهم, تخدم في مجملها مصالح الكيلن الصهيوني
وفي وقت يفرض فيه عباس, السيد صائب عريقات, وهو أمريكي من أصل فلسطيني, على الفلسطينيين كمفاوض وحيد منذ أكثر من 25 عاما, تماما لو أن الله الذي خلق عريقات توقف عنده, ولم يعد قادرا على خلق فلسطيني آخر أكثر كفاءة منه والعياذ بالله؟؟
وفي وقت يواصل فيه “الرئيس” عباس التعامل مع فلسطين كإقطاعية ومزرعة خاصة به, والشعب الفلسطيني كعبيد يعمل لديه
وفي الوقت الذي لا يدري فيه الفلسطينيون ما يطبخه عباس وعريقات من خلف ظهورهم وفي غياهب الظلام في البيت الأسود والأبيض والأخمر والأخضر في بلاد الله الواسعة وتل ربيع المحتلة “تل أبيب”, وفي ظل غياب المصارحة والشفافية في التعامل مع الشعب الفلسطيني
ورغم هذا وذاك, ورغم النقد اللاذع والتمرد على المفاوضات والقائمين عليها, إلا أن أيا من الفلسطينيين الأحرار لن يقبل في أي حال من الأحوال, وبأي ثمن, ما خرجت به تلك “الشلة” من الفلسطينيين والإسرائيليين, التي باتت تطرح نفسها منقذا وحيدا لفلسطين والشعب الفلسطيني, من خلال مؤتمرات مدفوعة الثمن تمولها جهات غربية تدعو إلى إقامة ما يسمى ب “دولة” ديمقراطية فلسطينية – إسرائيلية
الشلة الجديدة, والوجوه التي باتت تطرح نفسها في أوروبا منذ زمن فصير, وربما سنوات, وستعيد طرح نفسها ما بين 17 – 18 مايو / أيار القادم في مدينة “زيورخ” شريطة أن يدفع كل فلسطيني ويهودي وحليف أجنبي لتلك “الشلة” مبلغا وقدره 35 – 70 يورو ليشاهد طلات فطاحل ’خر زمان ويستمع إلى هلوساتهم
نقول بملء الكلمة – يئس “الشلة”, وبئس الدولة الفلسطينية – الإسرائيلية, الديمقراطية القادمة على أيديهم,, بئس المؤتمر وبئس المنظمين والداعمين له. ففلسطين وشعبها سادتي ستبقى عصية علي مشاريع التصفيات والقائمين عليها مهما علا أو قل شأنهم
