In this time of crisis, we face two particularly important choices. The first is between totalitarian surveillance and citizen empowerment. The second is between nationalist isolation and global solidarity
during its 1948 War of Independence, which justified a range of temporary measures from press censorship and land confiscation to special regulations for making pudding (I kid you not). The War of Independence has long been won, but Israel never declared the emergency over, and has failed to abolish many of the “temporary” measures of 1948 (the emergency pudding decree was mercifully abolished in 2011).

Note: Even with this admission by a retired US General on their show, CNN have maintained the narrative about ISIS. We have further confirmation of fabricated terrorist enemies – ISIS, Al-Qaeda.
“… the greater Israel project is all about destabilizing surrounding nations, ultimately in pursuit of this dream of greater Israel from the Euphrates down to the Nile all the way to the eastern Mediterranean
we have been arming people directly who are al Qaeda”
@11:20 – Lawrence Korb admits that the US cannot discriminate amongst the Syrian rebels. They have NO way to ensure that weapons/aid to the Syrian rebels does NOT go to ISIS/ISIL!
Now, here is a final irony—a great hypocrisy, if you will. Charlie Hebdo, only a week prior to the assault on their offices, fired one of their cartoonists. What had he done to deserve being fired? Why, he had suggested a cartoon poking fun at Zionists in Israel.
That was too much for the Jews in charge of Charlie Hebdo. You can depict the Pope as a dithering, naked idiot and Mohammed as a plundering sexual predator, but never, never say or do even one little thing to paint the Jews as other than pious, holy, and sanctimonious. Total, rank hypocrisy.
It was an open conspiracy exposed by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh in his 2007 article, “The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?“, that the US and its regional allies sought to use Al Qaeda and other extremist groups to wage a proxy war on Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah in Lebanon. This conspiracy has clearly manifested itself today in the form of ISIS. Despite a feigned military campaign waged against ISIS, targeting primarily Syria’s oil infrastructure, the true source of ISIS’ strength, emanating from NATO territory in Turkey, remains unscathed and uninterrupted. Additionally, torrents of cash, weapons, and supplies are working their way across ISIS’ rank and file through the migration of so-called “moderates” under their banner.
