“We Are NOT The United States Of Israel”:
An Angry Obama Tells Chinese Leader

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers (Traducción al Español abajo)


A most interesting report released by Russian Foreign Ministry Officials on the talks held Friday between President Obama and Chinese Leader Hu Jintao over the growing Global economic crisis state that when queried by Hu about the Americans UN response to war crimes charges being leveled against Israel the American President ‘angrily‘ replied, make no mistake about this, we are not the United States of Israel, we are the United States of America“.  

Following this unprecedented statement by President Obama against America’s longtime Middle Eastern ally Israel, he ordered the United States top envoy to United Nations toput his words into action, and which, according to the latest news sources, is exactly what the new US Ambassador to the UN did in her debut speech before the International body, and as we can read as reported by Israel’s Haaretz News Service:

“Israel must investigate allegations that its army violated international law during its three-week war against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip”, the new U.S. envoy to the United Nations said on Thursday.

“We expect Israel will meet its international obligations to investigate and we also call upon all members of the international community to refrain from politicizing these important issues,” Ambassador Susan Rice said in her debut speech before the UN Security Council.

Some 1,300 Palestinians, including at least 700 civilians, were killed during Israel’s Gaza offensive, according to the Hamas-run Health Ministry in the territory. Israel put its losses at 10 soldiers and three civilians.

During the campaign, Israel fired on several UN installations in Gaza, including schools, where hundreds of Palestinians had been seeking shelter from the fighting. Israel rejects allegations that its army was guilty of war crimes.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has said there would also be a UN investigation of the deadly attacks on United Nations sites in the Gaza Strip.”

The growing International outrage against Israel’s massacre of Palestinian civilians during their horrific attacks upon Gaza using weapons and ammunition provided to them by the United States has caused the Israeli Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, to vow that his Nation would protect all its soldiers and politicians charge with war crimes.

Reports from Spain are stating that under pressure from Israel, Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Moratinos has informed Israeli Foreign Minister, Tzipi Livni, of Spain’s plan to amend legislation that granted a Spanish judge the authority to launch a much-publicized war crimes investigation against senior Israeli officials.

Other reports coming from the European Continent on actions against Israel are less encouraging for the Jewish state, and as we can read:

“Belgium’s government has agreed to ban the export to Israel of weapons that “strengthen it militarily,” a Belgian minister said on Thursday. A Brussels-based research group accused Israel of enlisting child soldiers.

The Belgian daily De Morgen quotes Minister Patricia Ceysens from the Flemish regional government as saying: “There’s a consensus [among ministers] not to approve exports that would strengthen Israel’s military capacity.”

But, too the worst International fallout from Israel’s catastrophic destruction of Gaza comes from one of the United States most stalwart Middle Eastern allies, and NATO Member, Turkey, whose Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, stormed out of the Davos summit after calling the Israeli’s killers of children, and as we can further read the fallout of:

“The public confrontation between President Shimon Peres and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the Davos Summit Thursday continued off the stage over the weekend as questions arose over whether Peres apologized to Erdogan for what the Turkish leader said was ‘shouting’.

A senior political source in Israel also said that a private meeting between Peres and Erdogan that was scheduled to take place prior to the Davos panel they were both on was canceled at the last minute because of a Turkish request. The same source said it was probably canceled because the Turkish Prime Minister did want to give the impression that relations with Israel were business as usual.”

According to one report, senior European officials said, “Erdogan wants to be part of the European Union, but now he can forget about it.”

Both Russian and US Military Analysts have long stated that should Turkey be turned away from European Union Membership it would have ‘no choice‘ but to ally itself with its most ‘natural‘ ally, the Islamic Republic of Iran, and which now appears to be happening, and as we can read:

“Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called for recognition of Hamas which won a landslide victory in Palestinian elections. In an interview with The Washington Post published Saturday, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said isolating Hamas is the reason for the ongoing tensions in the region.

He criticized world leaders for failing to respect the political will of the Palestinian people who voted for the Palestinian resistance movement. Erdogan said Hamas would have been in a different situation if the world had given it a chance in politics after winning elections.

The Turkish prime minister said Hamas would not be able to change the situation as long as Palestine was “an open air prison”. Hamas won the 2006 Parliamentary elections with 74 of the 132 available seats. The rival ruling Fatah faction got only 45 seats.

Western-backed Acting Palestinian Authority Chief Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah however fired Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniya’s unity government in June 2007.

Erdogan’s remarks came after his recent public spat with Israel’s President Shimon Peres, over the Israeli massacre in the Gaza Strip, in the world economic forum meeting on Thursday.

On Thursday, Erdogan stormed out of the world economic forum in Davos, Switzerland after a heated debate with Shimon Peres on Gaza. Erdogan told Peres in the Forum, “Mr. Peres, you are a senior citizen and you speak in a loud voice. I feel that your raised voice is due to the guilt you feel.

“But be sure that my voice will not be raised as yours,” “When it comes to killing, you know very well how to kill.” “I know very well how you hit and killed children on beaches.”

Erdogan walked off in front of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and other panel members complaining that his comments on the conflict were cut short by the Washington Post’s moderator David Ignatius.”

Unbeknownst to the American people about this coming titanic shift in the Middle East base of power is the moderate Islamic government of Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan ‘livid anger‘ over President Bush’s and Israeli Prime Minister Olmert’s attempted December, 2008 coup against his government, and as we can read as reported by the Online Journal News Service in their report titled Mossadimplicated in a coup plot in Turkey, a NATO country; CIA fingerprints also found on attempt“, and which says:

“Fresh from revelations, reported by WMR, that Israel’s Mossad and ChabadHouse-based criminal syndicates were targets in a criminal gangland retribution attack by a notorious Muslim gang in Mumbai, comes word that Mossad has, once again, been implicated in an intelligence and criminal network, this time in Turkey.

What makes this latest example of Israel’s failure to stem the criminal activities of its intelligence service and criminal syndicates worse is that Turkey, unlike Israel, is a NATO ally of the United States and, therefore, the United States is bound by treaty to protect NATO allies from aggression by non-NATO states, including Israel.

The Turkish and other Middle East media are reporting that the Mossad has been fingered in connection with a right-wing Turkish criminal and intelligence gang, known as Ergenekon, that stands accused of attempting to overthrow Turkey’s democratically-elected Justice and Development (AKP) Party of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and President Abdullah Gul. Several Turkish papers have named a Turkish rabbi, Tuncay Guneyaka Daniel T. Guney and Daniel Levi and code-named “Ipek” or “Silk,” as having served as a double agent for the Turkish National Intelligence Organization (MIT) tasked with infiltrating the shadowy but powerful “state within a state” group Ergenekon. Guney had been arrested by Turkish authorities in 2001 for distributing fake drivers’ licenses and phony license plates for luxury cars. A document recently uncovered by the Turkish press revealed that Guney had also infiltrated a police intelligence unit (JITEM) working with Ergenekon to destabilize Turkey. Guney was exfiltrated to the United States and he now heads up the B’nai Yaakov Synagogue and Community Center in Toronto, CanadaGuney has denied that he has been an agent for Israel, Turkey or the United States but the MIT has confirmed the document identifying Guney as an agent for MIT is authentic.

The Turkish daily Hurriyethas reported that Guney served in MIT’s Counter-terrorism Unit (CTU) and in the MIT unit that monitors Iran. Hurriyet also reported that Guney had developed a contact at the Iranian consulate in Istanbul, MuhsinKarger, the consulate’s political affairs undersecretary.

Guney also has claimed to be a journalist and it is also alleged that he was a member of the PKK. Silvyo Ovaydo, the leader of the Turkish Jewish community, called Guney a fraudulent rabbi and said he was not even registered as a rabbi at the B’nai Yaakov synagogue in Toronto. Guney is said to have once worked for Islamist media organizations in Turkey but suddenly converted to Judaism and became an “instant rabbi” in Toronto.”

Russian Military reports point out, and most curiously too, that in this coming power shift in the Middle East, both Turkey and Iran are the most ‘natural allies‘ of the United States due to the similarity of their moderate Islamic societies with those of the moderate Christian factions residing in America, both centering their lives upon their homes, their families, reverence of their religious beliefs and democratic support of their governments.

To this very day, however, the vast majority of peoples in the United States still fail to realize that the most moderate and populated democratic Muslim Nations are Indonesia, Turkey, Iran and Lebanon who hold free and open elections for their leaders.

Standing against these moderate Muslim states, though, are the current Middle Eastern allies of the United States, including, the religious theocracies of Israeland Saudi Arabia, the despotic Gulf Nation states ruled by an elite class of Royal families, and Egypt, which is ruled by president for life Hosni Mubarak who has subjugated the Egyptian people to totalitarian abuse for over 30 years under a National State of Emergency backed up by American military troops and supplies.

But, to the most important issue to these most critical of matters, they lie with the current American President Barack Obama, who upon his taking office gave his first television interview to the Muslim World freely admitting his families long ties to the Islamic Religion, and should Obama shift the support of the United States from Israel to the moderate Muslim Nations of the Middle East there would not be any power left on Earth to oppose their rule.

So, perhaps it wasn’t too farfetched for the great French Diviner Nostradamus to predict about our times the coming from the East of the Islamic powers upon Europe, and then the World…

“The Eastern kings shall carry out the Divine Justice.

Turkey shall be devastated.

The regions subjected to Muslim armies

Shall cause mountains trembling with great war

Prisoners of both sexes and throughout Turkey

One shall cry at dawn from land to land”

THE DAY OF THE OUTBURSTS – By Ghulam Muhammed

THE DAY OF THE OUTBURSTS

 

Thursday, January 29, 2009 could have been a very star crossed day as it caused flare-ups in public arena at two different locations across the world. One at India‘s Supreme Court and the second at Davos meeting attending jointly by Israeli President Simon Perez and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan. 

 

In Delhi, the venue was the venerable highest justice portal of the land, India‘s Supreme Court. The TOI reports:

“Delay in riot cases raised in SC

Senior Lawyers Engage In War Of Words Over Srikrishna Report

Dhananjay Mahapatra I TNN 


New Delhi: Muslim organisations for long have been urging the Supreme Court to ensure in toto the implementation of Srikrishna Commission’s caustic report on 1992 Mumbai riots, but their counsel — both reputed senior advocates — had a bitter face-off in full public view in the Chief Justice of India’s courtroom on Thursday. 


    Seconds after a bench comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justices P Sathasivam and J M Panchal left the courtroom for lunch after adjourning hearing in the case, senior advocates Rajeev Dhawan and Colin Gonsalves traded charges. 


    Gonsalves, who was unhappy over the way the other senior advocate was conducting himself during the hearing, charged Dhawan of “compromising the case”. An angry Dhawan, generally erudite in his arguments on constitutional issues, was equal to the task with a below the belt remark, calling Gonsalves “an entrepreneur of minority rights”. 

Responding angrily to the continuing muttering by Gonsalves reiterating that his colleague had “compromised” the stand of the petitioners in the case, Dhawan termed his opponent as “the tail piece in the tale”, indicating the latter’s late entry into the riot case litigation in SC. 

    

    The two grey haired lawyers were finally dissuaded from a full fledged war of words by another, who said, “It does not look nice when two seniors fight in the court.” Though both left the courtroom without looking at each other, the verbal sniping continued till they were out in the open.

 
    Before breaking into the slanging match, Gonsalves, representing Shakil Ahmed, made a serious grievance before the bench about the manner in which the prosecution and judiciary had discriminated between the two inter-linked events — 1992 Mumbai riots and 1993 serial blasts. 


    “While trial in blast-related cases have been over, majority of the accused convicted and handed down death, life and other harsh sentences, there has not been a single conviction in riot-related cases,” he said. 


    In the 1992 riots, over 900 people were killed and the commission indicted several policemen, yet there were only acquittals and no action against the erring policemen, he complained. 


    
Maharashtra counsel Ravindra Adsure raised a technical objection. Verdicts of trial court acquitting the accused had to be challenged in proper forum and the SC could not entertain a PIL on this issue, he said.

 
    Agreeing with him, the bench said the apex court could at best issue some general guidelines relating to the manner in which these cases could be dealt by the police, prosecution and the trial court. It adjourned further hearing on the case, pending since 1998, to March 19. 


    Gonsalves alleged that as many as 30 officers were indicted for their involvement in the riots and most of them had been recommended to be dismissed from service, but though the state government has accepted the recommendations, it has instead given promotions to these officers.

Since Times of India is India‘s most widely read English newspaper, the news spread like wildfire. Both lawyers are supposed to be liberal and secular. But they apparently differ in degrees over their commitment to liberalism and secularism. The petition is from people of Mumbai, who had been enraged on how the supposedly secular political parties coalition of Sonia Congress and Sharad Pawar’s National Congress Party, has been stonewalling the persecution of accused singled out by Sri Krishna Commission as criminally involved in 1992-93 Bombay Riots in which Muslims were the major sufferers. While the culprits in Mumbai Bomb Blasts were promptly rounded up and all of them have been judged and guilty among them were sentence in quick order, the culprits in Bombay Riots, especially the 30 police officers that were found guilty and recommended by Justice Sri Krishna for dismissal had been, on the contrary, promoted. This is slap on the face of Muslims and at the face of Justice Sri Krishna too. A public litigation appeal was filed by several organizations, with the Supreme Court, pleading them to intervene in the matter and instruct the Maharashtra Government to speedily process the cases, so that those innocent could find freedom and justice. Both Congress and NCP governments are in the hands of Marathas and even though Muslim voters have voted overwhelming to elect both these supposedly secular political parties, their stark communalism is open for all to see how differently they have treated the accused in Mumbai blasts and those in Mumbai Riots. The difference is between Muslim accused and non-Muslim accused. The Muslim accused were swiftly tried and sentenced. The non-Muslims in Mumbai riots cases, including the non-Muslim police, has been given preferential treatment and there are chances that they will never be brought to justice, unless Supreme Court intervenes in the matter of equal justice for all.

 

The public behaviour of both coalition partners is all the more surprising, as elections to Parliament are due within next three months and Sharad Pawar is desperately trying to aim for the next Prime Minister’s post. Both secular parties need Muslim vote and both are overconfident that Muslims have nowhere to go and will vote for them, come what may. They could be surprised as Indian elections are famous for their surprises.

 

The petitioners are joined ironically by a former Congress Muslim minister, while his own government is involved in stonewalling. The public impression is that he was deliberately pushed into his role, to frustrate the ends of justice. The difference of approach by the two lawyers, Rajeev Dhawan and Colin Gonsalves could be the result of some attempt behind the scene to water down Muslim demands. One hopes, the truth will be revealed in the public arena, thanks to TOI reporting. Urdu Media is already on the trail.

 

The second outburst of the day widely telecasted on BBC, CNN, Reuters and Aljazeera, is datelined in Davos, Switzerland. Two supposedly friendly nation’s leaders were seated next to each other on the dais. They were Israel‘s President Simon Perez and Turkey‘s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Perez thundered in his baritone voice, breathing fire on Hamas in Gaza and showing no remorse on the 1200 dead and over 5000 injured in Israel’s land, sea and air onslaught on defenseless civilians. He was clapped and applauded by the European audience in the meeting.  Turkish prime minister, Israel’s only Muslim friend in the Middle East, was boiling at the way Perez was showing off his triumphal boasts. He further angered Erdogan, when he addressed him directly and asked the question, how he will feel if his country is hit by rockets. When Perez finished, the anchor started to declare the meeting close, but Erdogan intervened and repeatedly stopped him saying, one minute, one minute.  Ignatius of Washington Post deferred to him and said only a minute if you please as we are already late for dinner. In fact, Ignatius had realised that there will be fireworks if he allowed Erdogan to speak as he has seen Erdogan fuming and referring to his notes again and again. Erdogan had his say. He addressed Perez directly, saying you are elder to me and I see that you have a good voice; still you had to shout as possibly you had guilty conscious. He said, I saw your forces shooting children on the beach. Your two former prime ministers gloating over invading Gaza on the backs of tanks, and these people here are applauding. That is inhuman. He said, your own commandment says, you should not kill, and all you do is kill. He cited a Jewish Oxford professor who had come out heavily against Israel’s invasion of Gaza. He said, I am not being given time, as I have lots of points to take up. While he was struggling to speak, Ignatius kept on touching his shoulder and asking him to stop. Erdogan said, Perez spoke for 25 minutes and you are not giving me the right to reply for even half the time. I am finished with Davos, and I will never come to Davos again. Gathering his papers, he calmly stood up, ignored Perez and moved on towards the exit. While Erdogan spoke, Perez face was completely changed. Gone was the earlier cockiness and the show of bravado. Israel has lost in those moments, a vital Muslim ally that had stood with Israel in worst of days. Gaza massacre had touched all the people of the world across all divides, except die-hard Muslim haters. The reckoning for Israel is unfolding, as the blood of innocents will not go unanswered. Each day that dawns brings in news of new moves unfolding to haul Israel and its leaders for an accounting.
