    The video is avialable here.

    Israeli Zionist thugs have used every trick in the crime world to create many False-Flag Operations – for which they blamed Muslims with the help of their controlled mass-media. The Israel Occupation Force (IOF) have several military intelligence and sabator cells attacked to it. The most deadly among them is Sayeret Mat’kal (The Unit), which has been involved in the assassination of anti-Zionist regime leadership both inside and outside the occupied Palestine. This unit was created in 1957 and one of its specialty is its agents work in disguise by donning Arab garbs (known in Hebrew as Mista’aravim). The former Israeli prime minister and current defense minister Ehud Barak joined the group in 1959 and became its second chief by replacing Lt. Meir Har-Zion. In 1973, Israel’s “Spring of Youth Operation” conducted by the IOF, Ehud Barak dressed as an Arab woman conducting death squad hits. Mista’aravim provocateurs camouflaged as Palestinians are still used in the West Bank and Iraq. Jane’s Foreign Report said Mossad’s Gen. Meir Dagan had advised US officials in September 2002 on how Israeli special ops could help the US war effort in Iraq. Mista’aravim methods were exemplified in Basra where British SAS troops dressed as Arabs in a vehicle loaded with explosives were seized before detonating a car bomb. According to Israeli intelligence expert Ephraim Kahana, Sayaret Matkal is modeled on Britain’s SAS. The group was involved in the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri and unsuccessful attempt on Hizb’Allah leader Sheikh Nasrallah.

    Resist the Zionist propagandists and make your protest.

    In the US
    After The First Anniversary Of The War On Gaza The Butcher Of Gaza Is Coming To NYC!
    He Belongs In Prison, Not The Waldorf!
    [Thanks to Mark Shapiro, Military Resistance, who sent this in.]
    From: Al-Awda New York: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition.
    On March 9 there will be a $1000-a-plate fundraising dinner for the Israeli Occupation Forces, which murdered 1,400 Palestinians, including more than 400 children, in Gaza last year.

    +The criminal Gabi Ashkenazi, Chief of IDF General Staff, will be there.+

    We will be there too!

    Stand with the people of Gaza and all Palestine!
    Demand the end of U.S. support to Israel!
    Arrest and prosecute Ashkenazi and all Israeli War Criminals!
    Protest! Tuesday, March 9th – 6 pm

    Outside the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel
    49 St. and Park Avenue, Manhattan

    In the UK tonight

    Protest tonight,Sunday 7pm in London: Zionist Federation Gala Dinner with Colonel Richard Kemp.
    He is the main non-Israeli Zionist military attacker of the Goldstone Report. Kemp stated after the Gaza slaughter that “The Israeli Defence Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare”.

    Remind the Israeli apologists of the war crimes committed by Israel in Gaza, some of which were reported in the Goldstone Report. Also remind them of the siege of Gaza.

    Israeli terrorism was yet again exposed in the assassination of Mahmoud Mabhouh from Gaza by Israeli mercenaries failing to disguise it as a heart attack.

    The Zionists concealed the details of the venue, but dedicated activists succeeded, again, in exposing the secret location, proving there is no hiding place for Zionists in London.

    PS Kemp is a talking head appearing endlessly on BBC and Sky talking about the ‘situation’ in Afghanistan and reporting on ‘progress’, ie beating the war drums.

    The good news is – Israeli Hasbara (propaganda) is faiking.

    The Tel Aviv-based security and socioeconomic think tank Reut Institute’s report Eroding Israel\’s Legitimacy in the International Arena, submitted to the Zionist government on Thursday, has warned that Israel is “facing a draumatic assault on the very legitimacy of its existence as a Jewish and democratic state (another Zionist myth). The groups promoting this delegitimacy aim to isolate Israel and ultimately turn it into a pariah state“.
