The high-profile Syria “Activist” that CNN simply refers to as Danny asks for help from the Israel military to overthrow Assad.
He literally put a knife in our backs this past week when he slammed the entire BDS Movement. At a time when the Israeli government is doing everything in its power to destroy that movement, including legislation outlawing it, the last thing we needed was a ‘friend’ coming out against it publicly. In the US, the Movement is going mainstream, yet Finkelstein refers to it as a ‘cult’. To quote from Mark Twain; The proper office of a friend is to side with you when you are in the wrong. Nearly anybody will side with you when you are in the right. That was found in his notebook, written in 1898. And we thought Norman Finkelstein was a friend… He is being accused of sounding like Dershowitz.
Press TV reports the arrival of two Iranian warships at the Syrian city of Tartous; crossing of the Suez Canal is the second in a year by Iranian warships.
Iran is showing solidarity with Syria, but of course that is what Israel and the US really want. The goal of the attack on Syria isn’t Syria but opening the door to war with Iran!

Today, Saturday, February 18, 2012, a Grad missile landed in the outskirts of Beer Sheva just before noon. It caused no damage. The firing of the missile was detected; the alarms in Beer Sheva subsequently alerted denizens that a rocket was approaching. However, the Israeli Iron Dome missile shield system failed to intercept the rocket. Yesterday, two Qassam rockets landed near Ashkelon. They were detected, the alarms were activated, but Iron Dome failed. Shortly afterwards, another rocket landed in the area of the Eshkol Regional Council with similar results.
A confusing controversy between the United States and Egypt is unfolding. It has already raised tensions in the relationship between the two countries to a level that has not existed for decades. It results from moves by the military government in Cairo to go forward with the criminal prosecution of 43 foreigners, including 19 Americans, for unlawfully carrying on the work of unlicensed public interest organizations that improperly, according to Egyptian law, depend for their budget on foreign funding.
Sounds a lot like AIPAC, doesn’t it?
The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, met Egypt’s military rulers amid an acrid row between the allies over Egypt’s plans to try American and other activists for illicit foreign funding.

In a pigs eye!
PressTV should? change name to “PressTV banned in UK”
A sustainable energy program in ‘Area C’ of rural West Bank is being threatened by Israeli authorities. The program, which recently installed solar panels and wind turbines in 16 communities, is providing 1,500 Palestinians with electricity — who were formerly without reliable energy.
The foreign aid program, thus far successful, has become a new target for Israel as it threatens to demolish the structures that supposedly lie within Israeli ‘administration’.
Analysis of the State Departments satellite pictures, which were promoted by news agencies and various papers, clearly shows that these pictures of artillery guns “operational deployed against XYZ” were all taken of guns training within military barracks or well known training areas and not in active deployment.
