Days After Synagogue Attack, Assailants Open Fire at Jewish Restaurant in Paris

Unknown assailants opened fire at a Kosher restaurant in Paris’ 19th Arrondissement Wednesday night, apparently using an air gun as in a similar attack on a synagogue in the neighborhood earlier in the week, the French website JSS News reported.

The owner of the Al Haeche restaurant arrived at 7 am, and discovered a small impact crater on the front window.

There were no injuries or other damage in the attack.

The damage, possibly caused by a pellet gun, resembled that of a shooting Monday night at a window of the David Ben Ichay Synagogue, about a kilometer away.

The round went through the closed window of the religious center’s office – the only lit room – but did not hit the synagogue’s Rabbi Lousky or an assistant who were present. The Jewish National Bureau for Vigilance Against Antisemitism (BNVCA) condemned the latest assault, which they described “as anti-Semitic because they deliberately aimed at a kosher restaurant.”

BNVCA head, Sammy Ghozlan, said that “Regardless of the projectile, whether stone, lead ball or pellet, the BNVCA considers the intention and gesture as criminal and anti-Jewish.”

The group called for increased monitoring of the vicinity, which contains a large Jewish population, as well as many places of worship and kosher shops.

France was hit by three separate attacks by Muslim suspects in the last week, two of them using vehicles to ram into pedestrians, and the third a stabbing attack on police in Tours.

The BNVCA recommended that all those responsible for synagogues, Jewish schools and other institutions increase their vigilance and caution.

About 1,000 French soldiers have been deployed to provide increased security in some areas in the wake of the series of what local officials are calling unrelated attacks by “crazed” assailants.

On Dec. 1st, the Paris Jewish community was shocked by a brutal rape and home invasion by several Muslim suspects, who perpetrated the assault  ”because you are Jews,” according to the female victim’s testimony to police.

Roger Cukierman, the veteran president of CRIF, the representative body of French Jews, has issued an extraordinary warning concerning the potential fate of his community.

“Jews will leave in large numbers and France will fall into the hands of either Shari’a Law or the Front National,” Cukierman declared at a rally against anti-Semitism in the suburb of Creteil last Sunday, to loud applause from the assembled crowd.

 

Zionist State Gas Dreams Come Crashing Down In Eastern Med

[Between Israeli anti-Monopoly court forcing sell-off of part of Leviathan project and the resultant loss of Cyprus Leviathan connection, Leviathan enters a state of development “limbo” (SEE: Delek’s Cyprus gas bid expires).]

Foreign investors may be deterred from investing in Israeli gas, experts say

As the future of the Leviathan gas reservoir becomes more and more uncertain, experts fear foreign investors are becoming increasingly hesitant to direct funds into Israel’s hydrocarbon industry.

Israel Antitrust Authority commissioner David Gilo announced last Thursday that a proposed consent decree regarding the entry of Delek Group and Noble Energy into Leviathan would not be submitted to the Antitrust Tribunal for approval as had been agreed upon earlier this year.

By backpedaling on the previous agreement, the government may cause undue delays in the development of the country’s gas basins and deter future investments, industry sources say.

“Some of the investors are shocked by the decision,” Eddy Cukierman, founder and managing partner of Catalyst Investments and chairman of Cukierman & Co. Investment House Ltd., told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday.

Should Gilo ultimately decide to force the companies to sell their assets, it would “become ridiculous for an international investor to look at Israel as a serious place to invest in,” he said.

At Catalyst Investments, Cukierman works with a variety of international investors – particularly from Europe and China – focused on financing Israeli technologies.

Meanwhile, Cukierman & Co. has raised about $5.5 billion for Israeli companies from Europe, Asia and the United States.

“The delay of the process will freeze investments in oil and gas infrastructures, which are so much needed in the Israeli economy,” he said.

As rules change constantly, with new limitations and new constraints all the time, Cukierman feels potential investors will turn elsewhere.

“Eventually, they will see there is so much risk associated with investing in Israel,” he continued. “It’s not an easy place to invest in the current geopolitical context. If you add on to that the changing views of the different regulators, then it becomes almost impossible to attract quality investors in our environment.”

The proposed consent decree would have enabled the two companies, which are the main partners in both the Leviathan and neighboring Tamar gas reservoirs, to remain in the basins without being defined as a cartel.

Instead, they would be required to sell their smaller nearby reservoirs Karish and Tanin.

In addition to nixing his support for this arrangement last week, Gilo informed Delek and Noble Energy that the authority would be considering whether their ownership of Leviathan constitutes a “restrictive agreement,” meaning a cartel, which is illegal in Israel.

Cukierman attributed the sudden change in position to resentment of Israeli business mogul and Delek Group Chairman Yitzhak Tshuva, as well as Noble Energy.

“There is some jealousy about the success of one entrepreneur, especially coming from people working with a limited salary,” he said. “The only power they have is to say ‘no.’ They don’t understand what is the economic impact.”

The Tel Aviv Oil & Gas Index dropped to its lowest in more than two years on the day Gilo announced his intention to renounce support for the proposed consent decree, Bloomberg reported on Sunday, also citing investment- house traders and researchers who called into question the merit of pouring funds into Israeli hydrocarbons.

While many investors have expressed increased reluctance toward venturing into the Israeli oil and gas industry in light of the latest delays, others are looking to seize a potential opportunity.

Indian business newspaper The Financial Express reported that state-owned company ONGC Videsh (OVL) has expressed interest in buying a stake in Leviathan, according to Globes.

“OVL would like to participate in the Leviathan fields and other blocks offered for farm-in in the Levantine basin in Israeli waters,” The Financial Express quoted an unnamed official as saying.

“Since India has been importing crude oil from West Asian countries such as Iran, Iraq, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, opportunities in Israel were not pursued so far.”

Meanwhile, as the world’s hydrocarbon stakeholders await a firm decision on Leviathan’s future, Gilo responded in a letter on Sunday to criticism from National Infrastructures, Energy and Water Ministry officials, including Director-General Orna Hozman-Bechor, who sent a letter to Gilo on Thursday arguing that freezing the development of Leviathan could have serious geopolitical and fiscal implications for Israel.

“No changes in the circumstances have been presented to justify the move,” she said, adding that the changes could cause “significant and fundamental harm to the energy sector in Israel.”

In his response on Sunday, Gilo called Hozman-Bechor’s letter “surprising,” pointing out the Energy Ministry’s “lack of an explicit position in the past.”

When Antitrust Authority officials held a meeting with Energy Ministry officials on February 17, in light of the ongoing Leviathan negotiations, the representatives failed to express any position on the matter, he said.

“From your letter, and likewise from the policies of the [Energy Ministry] over the years, arises a stance that puts above any other interest the prevention of the threat that the monopoly in Leviathan will not develop the Leviathan reservoir,” Gilo wrote.

The antitrust commissioner accused Energy Ministry officials of prioritizing this goal “even if the significance is the subordination of the entire Israeli market to a formidable gas monopoly, which is expected to control most of the economy’s energy sources for many years.”

“With all due respect, I disagree with this approach outright,” Gilo wrote. “The Israeli consumer does not just deserve natural gas. He deserves natural gas at a competitive price, and he deserves a competitive gas sector.”

ISIS is NOT ‘Blowback’ from Western Foreign Policy; It is Western foreign policy

“THE ORIGIN OF ISIS”

ISIS is not ‘Blowback’ from Western Foreign Policy;

They ARE Western Foreign Policy

empire strikes black
By the Editor.

Notice that ISIS are sworn enemies of Syria, Hizbu’llah, and Iran. This in itself gives a most obvious clue as to the identity of the group’s benefactors.

A prevalent liberal cliché is the “blowback” theory – the theory that ISIS terror attacks, and indeed the group’s very existence, are somehow in retaliation to US/Western/”Israeli” foreign policy actions.

This is a disingenuous theory that is disseminated in order to keep the empire’s citizens on side. Crucially, it distracts from a key truth.

Western and “Israeli” intelligence has historically effected deep infiltration of ‘jihadist’ terror cells throughout the Arab world and the West; these groups are used literally as foot-soldiers (see Afghanistan throughout the 1980s) to achieve Western and “Israeli” military and strategic objectives. The “blowback” theory distracts from this key fact.

ISIS aren’t retaliating against Western foreign policy; they are Western foreign policy. These very people were mobilized against Muammar Gaddafi in Libya’s bogus ‘revolution’ of 2011, as with Syria in the same year.

In moving across the Syrian-Iraqi border, ISIS – Zionism’s foot-soldiers – underwent a magical media transformation into the ‘bad guys’. The ‘war against ISIS’ is a con, a total scam. It is a pretext for a war against the resistance axis: chiefly Syria, Hizbu’llah, Iran, and the Palestinian resistance. It is a pretext to kick the ‘Yinon plan’ – the plan to balkanise the Arab world to ensure “Israeli” hegemony – into high gear

The WMD lies of 2003 never went away; they simply got re-packaged for the liberal crowd in the post-Bush era.

The Yinon Plan, “Greater Israel”, Syria, Iraq, and ISIS: the Connection

TIMES OF POL

The Zionist Plan for the Middle East, also known as the Yinon Plan, is an Israeli strategic plan to ensure Israeli regional superiority. It insists and stipulates that Israel must reconfigure its geo-political environment through the balkanization of the surrounding Arab states into smaller and weaker states.

Reach of a "Greater Israel"

 “Greater Israel” consists in an area extending from the Nile Valley to the Euphrates.

When viewed in the current context, the war on Iraq, the 2006 war on Lebanon, the 2011 war on Libya, the ongoing war on Syria, not to mention the process of regime change in Egypt, must be understood in relation to the Zionist Plan for the Middle East. The latter consists in weakening and eventually fracturing neighboring Arab states as part of an Israeli expansionist project. (READ HERE)

 

Why Hasn’t ISIS/Al-Qaeda Ever Attacked Israel?

Terrorist Bedfellows: Saudi Arabia and Israel

21st century wire

Oye-Vey
A tale of two religious states, both hell-bent of purifying their arid lands of anyone who is not like them.One very important fact which is often lost on Americans of all levels and persuasions, is that the regime in Saudi Arabia is absolutely pro-Israel. Thus, anything Israel wants, Saudi does. Both export their own brands of terror. They are partners in business, as well as partners in crime...


BIRDS OF A FEATHER: Both Saudi and Israel need to remain close in order to maintain their artificial desert fiefdoms.

More importantly, both Israel and Saudi Arabia (both states are tethered to the US and Great Britain) fear and loath the concept Arab nationalism, and any secular Arab governments in the Middle East, and thus will do anything to put it down. Destabilization is good, so long as the two can divide the spoils and maintain a monopoly of force and power in the region.

While Israel remains busy terrorizing the native Palestinian population, or exporting false flag terror through the Israeli Mossad, the royal pestilence, who themselves enjoy regular and frequent beheadings (see image below) inside their backward medieval wahabi Bardo, has been quietly backing their sand pirates currently running amok in Syria and Iraq, namely al Qaeda, Jabat al Nusra Front, and ISIS/ISIL/IS, as “freedom fighters” in Syria, have now joined their Zionist cousins in Tel Aviv to rid the region of the real freedom fighters of the Lebanese resistance against the Israeli occupation, Hezbollah.

1-Saudi-Beheading
BIRDS OF A FEATHER: ISIS and Saudi share a penchant for chopping off people’s heads.

Why are the Saudis so upset with Hezbollah? Three reasons…

Firstly Hezbollah are Shi’ite (Shia) muslims, which according to extremist Wahabi royal hegemony doctrine – are the wrong sect of Islam, or not the ‘master sect’ (sound familiar?). Secondly, Hezbollah are doing a fine job of smiting Saudis proxy militants and IS death squads in Syria and Lebanon. Lastly, like Israel, Saudi are also afraid of all things Iranian (mostly they fear any economic competition) and since Hezzbollah are allied with Tehran, and like Israel, Saudi doesn’t like any resistance to their private ambitions.

Isn’t it rich of Riyadh to be crying to the UN about terrorist groups when their Empire of Sand (and oil) is one of the world’s worst sponsors of militant Salafist terrorism?

Meanwhile, the US plays man-in-the-middle, brokering lucrative arms deals for both Saudi Arabia and Israel.

Both are client states, the only difference is that Saudi Arabia still pays for its arms, while Israel is on the US dole, still getting free hand-outs from the US taxpayer (that’s right, Americans unknowingly pay for Israeli fancy weaponry)…

Saudi Envoy Wants Hezbollah Back on UN Terror List

Yalibnan

BEIRUT – Saudi Arabia asked On Wednesday the U.N. Security Council to add Hezbollah to its list of “terrorist organizations”.“We call on the council to place Hezbollah on the list of terrorist organizations,” Saudi envoy to the Security Council Abdallah Al-Mouallimi said.

Mouallimi stressed that his country is committed to “international cooperation aimed at eradicating terrorism,” noting that “Saudi Arabia was one of the first countries that confronted terror.”

“The threat of foreign fighters in Syria is not limited to the country in which they are carrying out their acts, as it rather transcends the borders to reach the entire world,” Mouallimi added.

Hezbollah was founded by the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) soon after the 1979 revolution in Iran. The group is fighting in Syria to save the Bashar al-Assad regime.

On November 12, The Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) boasted of how it has supplied Lebanese Hezbollah with missile systems.

Brigadier General Hajizadeh, commander of IRGC’s aerospace section told the regime’s Fars news agency: “The factories that manufacture missiles in Syria are built by Iran and the missiles designed by Iran are being manufactured there.

He said the Lebanese Hezbollah “has been taught how to build missiles by Iran” and they “have become quite expert in this field”.

Hajizadeh said all these projects were implemented with the “prodding and encouragement” of the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei himself and that it was the “wisdom of His Excellency that we build missiles with pinpoint accuracy”.

The Iranian regime’s export of missiles and related technology to other countries is in clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions banning the activity.

Other Shiite groups

Mouallemi also called on the Security Council to blacklist Shiite Iraqi militia, the League of the Righteous, and the Shiite Syrian militant group, the al-Abbas Brigades.

The U.N. Security Council on Wednesday added Libya’s Ansar al-Sharia to its terror list over the Islamist group’s ties to Al-Qaeda, AFP said Wednesday.

Israeli police have fired a rubber bullet at a five-year-old Palestinian boy’s face as he was getting out of a school bus on his way home, the child’s family told Palestinian media. He sustained a skull fracture under his eye.

The incident happened when Muhammad Jamal Ubeid and his 14-year-old sister stepped out of the school bus and started walking home in al-Issawiya, an Arab village and neighborhood in East Jerusalem, on Wednesday.

“An Israeli soldier fired a black rubber-coated bullet at the child from a close distance, injuring him under the eye,” Muhammad’s uncle told the Palestinian Ma’an News Agency.

Muhammad was taken to the nearby Hadassah Medical Center on Mount Scopus, where the doctors said the boy had a fracture in the bone below his eye. The hospital confirmed that his wound was typical of ones inflicted by rubber bullets.

The hospital officials told Haaretz that the boy’s condition was satisfactory and he was headed for surgery.

The child was later transported to the Hadassah Medical Center in the Ein Karem neighborhood, West Jerusalem.

RT Paula Slier visited Muhammad a few hours after surgery in Hadassah Medical Center in the Ein Karem and talked to his parents.

“He’s an innocent boy, he didn’t do anything! Why did this happen to him? I’m really worried about my son – they [Israelis] are the racists, not us!” Muhammad’s mother told RT.

“He’s 5-years-old, he’s an innocent child, he didn’t have a rifle, he didn’t have a phone,” added his father. “This is racism, they want to kill us because they hate us. We are Palestinians and they hate us.”

The village residents who witnessed the incident, told Haaretz that Muhammad was standing outside his home while Israeli police fired rubber bullets at children and teenagers. The latter were throwing stones at vehicles on nearby Ma’aleh Adumim Road.

However, according to the Muhammad’s uncle, there were no clashes in the area between Palestinians and Israelis at the time of the shooting.

On Thursday, Jerusalem police released a statement indicating that police officials used riot-control means. However, they didn’t confirm that the child was injured during the incident.

“A new and in depth examination was conducted following the reports of an injured child being hospitalized and it was found that a number of masked [protesters] threw rocks, Molotov cocktails and shot fireworks at a border police force operating [on Wednesday] on the slopes of Isawiya, to prevent harm to citizens traveling on the road towards Ma’ale Adumim,” the police said in its statement.

They added that Israeli police forces “dispersed the rioters.”

“It is not known if a child was injured during this incident. All the information was transferred to the [Justice Ministry] department for investigating the police,” added the statement.

Little chance of justice?

Ziyad Hamuri from the Jerusalem Centre for Social and Human Rights told RT there were surveillance cameras in the area, which would show that there were no clashes near the school bus where the boy was shot at.

But according to Hamuri, there is little chance of justice for the injured boy, as Arabs “do not succeed” in Israeli courts, as opposed to Jewish settlers.

“We fear that there is a discrimination in the Israeli law. When it comes to a settler, they have their rights, but in our side, we [Palestinians] don’t have our rights,” the activist said.

Hamuri stressed that this is not the first time firearms have been used against Palestinian children, saying that their use against protesters is not justified. He wondered why the IDF prefers using bullets as opposed to riot control means such as tear gas, pointing out that the so-called rubber bullets are actually rubber-coated metal projectiles that can cause serious injury or death.

“It seems that there [are] orders for them. We have seen two months before that the interior minister declared that they [police] can use such weapons against the people,”
Hamuri said.

According to al-Issawiya accounts, Muhammad is the second child in the area to be hit by foam-tipped bullets in the upper body, which is forbidden by police rule.

In November, an eleven-year-old was shot at a close range in the face by a sponge bullet in al-Issawiya. Saleh Samer Attiyeh Mahmoud lost his left eye and the vision of his right eye was also severely damaged.

Earlier Haaretz reported that Israeli police officers were using foam-tipped bullets, which are generally used for riot control. They are harder than other kinds of bullets and are particularly dangerous for children and teenagers.

Al-Issawiya, along with other East Jerusalem neighborhoods, has heavy Israeli police presence amid ongoing protests over the Israeli occupation.
