07-01-06 - FBI and Western Union helped Israel With targeted assassinations The Homeland Security Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill last week aimed at further increasing intelligence ties with Israel and other countries by establishing a new office for international cooperation programs within the Department of Homeland Security. This atmosphere of cooperation, Suskind states in his book, has reinforced the sense that President George Bush wants to assist Israel and was not disturbed by the military operations that Ariel Sharon's government authorized in the territories. Suskind quotes Bush as saying during his first National Security Council meeting that the U.S. must refrain from active mediation in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Homeland Security Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives evidently does not put the interests of the American people first. Not many on Capitol Hill these days do. Hence the reason for the statement: America is Israeli-occupied territory.

07-01-06 - Israel gears up for diplomatic offensive Israel is preparing a diplomatic offensive to be launched over the next couple of days to deflect the image abroad that the recent IDF actions have put Gaza on the verge of a catastrophic humanitarian crisis Rather than refraining from committing war crimes, Israel would prefer to whitewash them instead. The US press will lap it up though. Note in paragraphs 4,5 and 7 the sense of satisfaction Israel got from support from 'abroad' - namely, the green light from Bush for Israel to continue its war crimes, and that Bolton was" even more adamant in his support for Israel's actions".
