AIPAC sued for $6.6 billion

May 25, 2011

$6.64 Billion Damages Sought over Israeli Government and AIPAC Use of
Stolen Classified US Trade Data. 
http://tiny.cc/ic3xo

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS
WIRE)–Today the Section 301 Committee of the US Trade Representative
formally received a petition demanding $6.64 billion in compensation
for US exporters. In 1984 US exporters were urged to submit business
confidential data about their prices, market share, internal costs
and market strategy to the International Trade Commission. The USTR
guaranteed confidentiality and compiled the data into a classified
report for use in negotiating the US-Israel Free Trade Agreement.

The Israeli government obtained the classified USTR report and passed it
to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee to use in lobbying
and public relations. Declassified FBI investigation files in the
petition reveal AIPAC’s legislative director made illicit
duplications before returning the report by order of the USTR. The
FBI interviewed Israeli Minister of Economics Dan Halpern who
admitted obtaining the classified document and giving it to AIPAC.

According to the petition Israel unfairly leveraged the business confidential
data stolen from US corporations and industry groups to create new
export oriented industries to penetrate the American market. Israel
thereby gained an unwarranted systemic advantage. ….

Israel steals $105 million from Palestinians

May 11, 2011

Israel
is getting away with robbing Palestinian taxes

Israel
is getting away with ‘robbing’ the Palestinians of $105 million bu
withholding tax funds; we all know that the robber will not be
punished. ….  http://tiny.cc/ulh0x

The
‘Palestinian Authority’ can’t pay salaries in May due to Israel
halting funds transfer.

The
Palestinian Authority said on Monday it had not been able to pay
salaries for the first time since 2007 because of Israel’s decision
to halt the transfer of funds it collects on its behalf. ….

EU
covers Israel’s suspended tax money to Palestinian Authority.

May 6, 2011     http://tiny.cc/q71ry

(JTA)
— The European Union approved an extra $124 million in emergency aid
to the Palestinians to supplement tax moneys frozen by Israel.


“It
is important that access to essential public services remains
uninterrupted and the right to social services is respected,”
Reuters on Friday quoted Catherine Ashton, the E.U. foreign policy
chief, as saying.


Israel
stopped payment this week on $105 million it owes the Palestinian
Authority on customs duties and other taxes because of the unity
agreement that Fatah signed with Hamas.


The
E.U. money would go to essential employees and to families in need.

Half
the Democratic caucus in the U.S. Senate urged President Obama to
suspend assistance to the Palestinian Authority.

Israel
admits it covertly canceled residency status of 140,000 Palestinians.

Document
obtained by Haaretz reveals that between 1967 and 1994 many
Palestinians traveling abroad were stripped of residency status,
allegedly without warning. ….  

Today,
a similar procedure is still in place for residents of East Jerusalem
who hold Israeli ID cards; they lose their right to return if they
have been abroad for seven years.  ….  http://tiny.cc/qv0j5

Israel – the rich Parasite State

Israel:
The rich parasite state       http://tiny.cc/jg2xz

A
few months ago, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) irked the Zionist Lobby,
when he told CNN’s Jewish talk-show host Wolf Blitzer that under
crushing economic picture in the US, Washington needs to stop its
billions of dollars of annual aid to Israel. Since its creation by
the western powers, Israel has successfully sucked over US$3 trillion
from the US taxpayers. Barack Obama in late 2009 approved an
additional $2.77 billion for Israeli foreign aid in 2010, and another
$30 billion over the next decade. …


In
2010 – the Zionist entity reported the highest numbers of
billionaires (10) and millionaires (5900) in the Middle East.


The
2011 report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and
Development (OECD) proves once again that while the US economy is in
the drain due to US-Israeli wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya –
the Israel’s economy is booming.


Growing
by 7.8% last year, the Israeli economy ranked fifth highest in growth
among the world’s most prosperous OECD’s 34 members. Israel’s
growth outstripped that of the United States, Britain, Japan, Germany
and France. …

WINEP – Zionist Propaganda

May 6, 2011

The
Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) is a think
tank based in Washington, D.C. focused on United States foreign
policy in the Middle East. It was established by the American
Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)
in 1985. In contrast to
AIPAC’s partisan image, the institute’s mission statement states that
it seeks “to advance a balanced and realistic understanding of
American interests in the Middle East. The group is often described
as being pro-Israel. ….

WINEP
is focused on influencing the media and U.S. executive branch; —
this is unlike AIPAC, which attempts to influence the U.S. Congress
through campaign contributions. … WINEP: most important Zionist
propaganda tool in the United States. …. “part of the core”
of the Israel lobby in the United States.  …
