1. Binyamin Netanyahu claims to speak for the majority of world Jewry although, in fact, he represents only a minority of Jewish Israelis and Americans those who support his right-wing, Likud Party. To many others, particularly in Europe, he is considered a US-financed, Zionist rabble-rouser with an extremist political agenda that rejects any Palestinian state and requires the transfer of all indigenous Arabs out of former Palestine.
2. Israeli policies such as the illegal settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem (to prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state); the 8 year blockade of essential supplies into Gaza; the mis-labelling of exported fruit and vegetables to Europe and the horrific killing of hundreds of defenceless women and children in Gaza all have the effect of exacerbating antisemitism around the world. The agenda of the Israeli government against the indigenous Arab population being the primary driver of anti-Jewish feeling both in Europe and globally.
3. Netanyahu is well aware of this link and the detrimental effect of his policies on the security of Jewish communities worldwide, and on public opinion, but he also knows that the greater the increase in antisemitism the more French, British and other Jewish nationals will be forced to sell their homes and reluctantly leave the countries of their birth to seek sanctuary in Israel. This is a key principle of the Netanyahu government agenda that all American, European and diaspora Jews should be ‘persuaded’ to emigrate to the Israeli state together with their assets.
4. However, this agenda is also partly supported by millions of evangelist, Christian Zionists in America, who believe in the literal word of the bible and whose goal is for all 14 million Jews in the world to be relocated to the Israeli state where they can be baptised and converted, en masse, into the Christian church! The Israeli government ministers smile knowingly behind their hands as they accept this support without which their economy would collapse.
5. The Israel lobby in America comprises over a dozen organisations including AIPAC, the primary Zionist political pressure group with links into the White House that heavily influences US foreign policy around the world.
However, for many integrated European Jewish communities, Mr Netanyahus alleged war crimes in Gaza plus his violent, expansionist agenda with its consequent rise in antisemitism, are very bad news indeed.
The head of UNICEF said yesterday, that 392 children had been killed in the conflict between Israel and Hamas, and that about 370,000 children had been traumatised.
A boycott of academic and trading links with the state of Israel now seems to be inevitable consequence of the atrocities carried out in Gaza.

Highlights of the day – Our post-modern times
>>> Anti-Israel tweets cost professor new job at University of Illinois, rep says(CNN). Support the professor. Call the vice-president Joe Biden and the College.
>>> A 72 hours truce between the Hamas and Israel is holding, since yesterday 10 pm (London time).
>>> Erdogan has won Presidential elections over the promise for a New Turkey. Out of Kemalism ?
>>> CNN is reporting « Iraqi President Fuad Masum appoints Haider al-Abadi as Iraq’s new PM, in an event shown live on state television. The timing of this replacement is flawed. Al Maliki’s head has been marked « Wanted » by the West. He is facing the hard Saddam Hussein’s line. First, you are used as a friend and if you failed to obey, you are no longer. Al Maliki wasn’t a man of consensus. But, he is not responsible for the ISIS fabrication and its subsequent terror.
American agenda is ajustable to its interests. First, the US was friend of the sunnite (Saddam) then they changed with Al-Maliki (chiite) and now it is the Kurdish time. Take care, this tactics of dividing to reign blew up Africa. Recovery was and still is an endless road to National Unity.
>>> Uganda is caught with gay pride fever. Those are stupid africans. Good at nothing except running after anal sex and immigration. I don’t know which I prefer : Boko Haram’s boys or peados. The first ones have some balls and the second just an ass. Africa is facing some big challenges and what some Uganda’s lost men have found urgent to do is entering a parody of homosexuality adoration.
Who is going to tell them that this is a luxurous stand for western dispassionated and delusioned people under intensive drugs consumption or slaves of money, not to talk about the western consumerist societies and their pervasive/perverse aspects badly hurting the overexposed ?
>>> Here is an anthem for the Uganda’s pride gay community : Touch my body. Big Monkeys. This is what happens inside a society ruled by corrupt institutions, the kind of that Ugandan Constitutionnal Council ruling under Westerner obedience to contradict the President, Museveni, and the Parliament. Death penalty was strong but this legalisation is laughable and contradicts the essence of African culture, nature, soul, spirit and identity, considered positively.
At the time South African adopted this same rule of gay legalisation, corruption sat in the ANC for long.
PEOPLE OF THE WORLD I SPELL ON YOU – IF YOU CAN, HELP THE MSF (DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS) –HELP GAZA. PLEASE. DON’T FORGET UKRAINIAN PEOPLE.
THE OUTPOURING OF IMAGES OF HUMANITARIAN AID DELIVERY IN IRAQ IS ATTAINING ITS VILE OBJECTIVE : TURNING THE ATTENTION OF THE PUBLIC TO THE OTHER DIRECTION JUST AS IF THINGS WERE NORMAL INSIDE UKRAINE. THE COMPLICITY OF WESTERN MEDIA SERVING AS A COVER UP TO THE UNSPEAKABLE INCLUDING SILENT MASS CRIMES IS PART OF MORE OF THE SAME OLD WORLD AGONISING UNDER OUR WATCH. THE SUM OF WRONG ASSERTIONS AND ANALYSIS INSIDE MAINSTREAM NEWS MAGAZINE – to name those who help in shaping the world that horror – IS APPALLING. IN OTHER TIMES THOSE PEOPLE SHOULD DESERVELY BE BEHEADED by DOCTOR GUILLOTINE, FOR HIGH TREASON. THEIR EXCUSES : THEY ARE EMPLOYEES OF THE BIG WALL OF LAMENTATIONS AND HELPLESS. THEY CAN BE FIRED BEFORE EVEN STARTING THEIR CAREER LIKE THE PALESTINIAN TEACHER FIRED FOR SPEAKING OUT THE TRUTH. THE SAME WILL LECTURE AFRICA ABOUT FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ROTS OF ALL KINDS. AMONG THEM DEMOCRACY RULE.
WANT TO SEE AN EXAMPLE OF NEW RICH PEOPLE ? NOW THINK ABOUT THEIR SHARED AND JUBILANT RESPONSIBILITY IN PROSTITUTING THE PROFESSION, POLITICS, EDUCATION, ETHICS AND THE ENTIRE BUSINESS.
BUT THE WORLD IS CHANGING. AND THE UNTHINKABLE HAPPENS.
Take a look at this NYT issue.

The militant group had clear goals and achieved them. Meanwhile, Israel’s deterrence has been damaged.
NEXT : AFRICA.
A landmark summit meeting was a splashy event that advertised the continent’s economic potential. But major follow-through is necessary to achieve results.
