~The Creation of Israel~
The discovery of the Holocaust created great sympathy for the Jews. Many western countries wanted to create a homeland where they could settle and feel safe. The problem was that there were hundreds of thousands of Arabs living in Palestine and they naturally believed that the land was theirs by right.

They had lived there for more than a thousand years.

Jews had been arriving in the area since the 1890’s. Jews believed that Palestine was the ‘Promised Land’ of the Old Testament and that therefore they had a right to settle there.  Friction had soon developed between them and the Arabs.

In the 1930’s there had been a civil war between the two groups.

The British had tried to solve the problem but in the end only managed to make the situation more difficult. They appeared to make promises to both sides, which they could obviously not keep. Eventually they had been forced to give up.

In 1947 the United Nations was faced with having to come up with a solution.

The United Nations recommended dividing Palestine between Arabs and Jews

The plan was published in November 1947.

The Arabs immediately rejected partition, because they believed that Palestine was theirs by right. The Plan also appeared to favor the Jews. Although the population of Palestine was about 60% Arab, the Jews received more than half of the land and the more fertile areas as well.

The Arabs were allotted areas that were mostly desert.

As the British withdrew, the Palestinians fought to gain control of every town. On the other side, Israeli terrorist gangs, the ‘Stern’ and the ‘Irgun’, forced Arabs to leave their homes and flee for their lives. Those who stayed, or tried to fight, were killed, men, women and children.

This was a major factor in the bitter hatred that developed between Jews and Arabs.

Nevertheless, the United Nations plan was approved and preparations began for the new state of Israel

Flags

For their part, the Israelis announced that Israel would be a secular state, that meant that religion would have no influence, and that all people living within its borders would have the full rights of citizenship. In other words, although Israel was being created as a homeland for Jews, Arabs would qualify as citizens and be able to vote and stand for the Knesset, the Israeli parliament. This did not satisfy many Arabs. They did not want to live in Israel.

They wanted a state of their own.

On 14 May 1948, the Israeli Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, announced the creation of the state of Israel. There was great rejoicing in Tel Aviv but the Arab governments in the surrounding countries objected to the new state and tried to destroy it. On 15 May 1948 the armies of Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Transjordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt attacked Israel.

TRAGEDY STRIKES PUERTO RICO’S NATIONAL GUARD

PORT WENTWORTH, GEORGIA

Surveillance video captured a 1950’s-era military cargo plane plunging to the ground. The C-130 aircraft exploded into flames on a busy Georgia highway Wednesday, May 2, killing all nine crew members aboard.

The Puerto Rico National Guard plane took off from Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport shortly before 11:30 a.m. and was headed for retirement.

Surveillance video from a nearby business captured what happened next, CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann reports. The plane banked left before nose-diving and spiraling into the ground. Seconds later, a fireball and black smoke went shooting into the sky.

The plane crashed into the median of the highway, narrowly avoiding traffic, warehouses and a nearby gas station.

The pilot was identified as Maj. José Rafael Román, who hails from the coastal town of Manatí along Puerto Rico’s north coast. The mayor of that town, José Sánchez, told The Associated Press that Román had two young boys and his wife is five months pregnant with a girl.

“The town is in mourning,” Sanchez said.

“My condolences to all Puerto Rican families.”

On Thursday, the Puerto Rico National Guard identified the other crew members as 1st Lt. David Albandoz, Master Sgt. Jean Audriffred, Master Sgt. Mario Brana, Master Sgt. Eric Circuns, Master Sgt. Víctor Colón, Senior Airman Roberto Espada, Senior Master Sgt. Jan Paravisini and Maj. Carlos Pérez Serra.

Oh, m’gawd … what a mess!! 

These wise words were written by a dear well educated, American friend who considers himself a Middle East nerd.

He has given me permission to share them here.

Take a look.

This was all new to me and, of course, no one hears this on the news.

If anyone wants to know, one has to do research and educate oneself!

This is why America and its coalition are trying to remove Assad and get a “West Friendly” government in Syria
The war against Assad did not start in 2011 with the Arab Spring but at least as early as 2000 when Qatar proposed to construct a $10 billion, 1,500 kilometer pipeline through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey, connecting Qatar directly to the European energy market and reducing the EU’s energy dependence on Russia.

This made it a threat to Russia which sells 70% of its gas exports to Europe.

PipeLPipeL2

Assad, remaining loyal to his Russian ally, refused to sign the agreement to allow the pipeline to run through Syria and, instead, approved the “Islamic pipeline” running from Iran’s gas field through Syria to the ports of Lebanon, potentially making Iran the main supplier to the European energy market. Naturally, this did not go down well with the Gulf’s Sunni monarchs allied with the West, Israel, nor the West itself, particularly as it seeks to weaken Russia to the point of the Yeltsin era – back to subservience.

Robert F Kennedy Jr., in February, 2016 wrote,

“Secret cables and reports by the US, Saudi and Israeli intelligence agencies indicate that the moment Assad rejected the Qatari pipeline, military and intelligence planners quickly arrived at the consensus that fomenting a Sunni uprising in Syria to overthrow the uncooperative Bashar Assad was a feasible path to achieving the shared objective of completing the Qatar/Turkey gas link.”

In 2009, according to WikiLeaks, soon after Bashar Assad rejected the Qatar pipeline, the CIA began funding opposition groups in Syria.

In 2011, the US joined France, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and England to form the ‘Friends of Syria Coalition,’ which formally demanded the removal of Assad.

The CIA provided $6 million to Barada, a British TV channel, to produce pieces entreating Assad’s ouster. Saudi intelligence documents, published by WikiLeaks, show that by 2012, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia were arming, training and funding radical Jihadist Sunni fighters from Syria, Iraq and elsewhere to overthrow the Assad’s Shia allied regime.

Qatar, which had the most to gain, invested $3 billion in building the insurgency and invited the Pentagon to train insurgents at US bases in Qatar.

Flags

U.S. personnel also provided logistical support and intelligence to the rebels on the ground.

The Times of London reported on September 14, 2012, that the CIA also armed Jihadists with anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles and other weapons from Libyan armouries that the agency smuggled by ratlines to Syria via Turkey.

According to an April 2014 article by Seymour Hersh, the CIA weapons ratlines were financed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Map
Following Washington’s decision to remove Assad, its Middle Eastern allies, including Turkey, has been assisting anyone and everyone (including ISIS and al-Qaeda) opposing the Syrian government.

Assad has repeatedly said that Turkey was not fighting extremism but actually fomenting it.

In December 2015, German newspaper Deutsche Welle reported that “Military and logistic support from Turkey was the key factor in extremists’ takeover of Idlib”, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said.

… and there is more, so much more …

Mr. Drumpf characterized it as the beginning of a sustained effort to force Mr. Assad to stop using banned weapons, but only ordered a limited, one-night operation that hit three targets.ControlImagesMeWeOneItIsYell

SYRIA’S WAR: CONVOLUTED AND COMPLICATED

SYRIA’S WAR IS A MESS

Back in April 8, 2017, I posted information about the war in Syria.

Ezra Klein, from Vox, narrated a video which explained the many factions, factors, countries and issues involved in the Syrian civil war which started in 2011 after the “Arab Spring“.

We know about the war raging within its borders.

We have seen the many refugees leaving and running into uncertain conditions about their travels and their eventual destination.

On April 7, 2017, the situation attracted a huge spotlight due to the launching of Tomahawk missiles by the United States, on a base in western Syria. The United States said was used to launch a chemical attack on April 4, 2017,which left nearly 100 people dead and hundreds more injured.

On 7 April 2018, a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma reportedly killed at least 70 people. On-site medics stated that exposure to chlorine gas and sarin nerve agent killed the victims. Several reports attributed the attack to the Syrian Army, which the Syrian Government and its allies disputed, either denying involvement or that a chemical attack had taken place at all.

Almost exactly to one year, the United States and European allies launched airstrikes on Friday night, April 13, 2018,  against Syrian research, storage and military targets as Drumpf sought to punish President Bashar al-Assad for a suspected chemical attack near Damascus last weekend that killed more than 40 people.

The video explains the many details, factions, alliances and ‘players’.

And to add to the mortal mix, Drumpf is now the ‘so-called Commander- in-Chief”. 

Take a look.

NATIONAL LYNCHING MEMORIAL

Memorial Honoring Lynching Victims Being Built In Alabama

 “Architecture that’s built to heal”

The Memorial to Peace and Justice, informally known as the National Lynching Memorial, is a national memorial planned to commemorate the victims of lynching in America, and is expected to open in Montgomery, Alabama in April 2018. The memorial is to be built in the downtown area of the state capital by the Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit based in Montgomery. Also planned is a museum, From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration, to be built near the Montgomery site where slaves were auctioned at market.

The monument “will consist of hundreds of floating concrete columns that will represent each county in the United States and contain the names of more than 4,000 lynching victims”.

It is designed by MASS Design Group from Boston, and will be built on six acres purchased by EJI. According to the EJI, there were over 4000 documented lynchings of black victims between 1877 and 1950; the purpose of the monument is to name and thereby honor them.

Outside of the structure in the surrounding field is another set of columns identical to the ones hanging in the Memorial. These columns, however, are not meant to stay at the Memorial. The outside pillars are intended to be temporary because The Equal Justice Initiative is asking each of the counties which these columns represent to come and claim their monument. They hope that with the claiming of the pillars, there will be a way to see which counties have representatives willing to confront the horrors of their past, and to strive to move forward, and which do not.

Equal Justice Initiative Lynching Museum, Montgomery Alabama Opens in 2018

This memorial honors the thousands of African Americans who were lynched between 1877 to 1950

Wes Johnson was about 18 years old when he was murdered in a cotton field in southern Alabama. It was 1937, and according to newspaper reports at the time, a mob of men had dragged him from his jail cell before he could stand trial for the charge against him: assaulting a white woman. Today, only one photograph is known to exist of Johnson, a single picture to preserve his image for posterity – his lifeless body hanging from a tree.

Bryan Stevenson wants to honor the legacy of Johnson, and thousands like him, with a new memorial for victims of lynching in America. Stevenson is a lawyer and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit organization that investigates the lynchings of African Americans. To commemorate the victims whose cases they’ve examined, the organization recently bought six acres of land in Montgomery, Alabama and constructed a memorial.  

Last night, April 8, 2018, on 60 MinutesOprah Winfrey gets an early look at the memorial, which will open to the public on April 26. The memorial contains 805 steel markers, one for each county where lynchings occurred for more than 70 years following the Civil War.

The markers are suspended in air to evoke the horror of being hanged.

To tell that story on 60 Minutes, Winfrey and a team of producers felt it was important to show historical photos of lynchings, images that are likely to disturb many viewers. In an interview with 60 Minutes Overtime, Denise Schrier Cetta, the producer of the story, and Jeff Fager, the executive producer of the broadcast, explain their decision to air such upsetting photographs.
