03-07-07 - Israel-Syria Breakthrough Anticipated The Jerusalem Post quoted a senior State Department official Wednesday as saying it is a "myth" to believe the U.S. is "blocking the path to Syrian-Israeli discussions." It's more like an 'excuse' so that Israel does not have to make peace with Syria. For, making peace with Syria would entail giving back land that Israel has unlawfully held on to for nearly forty years.

03-07-07 - St. Patrick Fitzgerald

03-07-07 - Seven Countries In Five Years "This is a memo that describes how we're going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran." I said, "Is it classified?" He said, "Yes, sir." I said, "Well, don't show it to me." And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, "You remember that?" He said, "Sir, I didn't show you that memo! I didn't show it to you!"

03-07-07 - What Did Israel Know in Advance of the 9/11 Attacks? "One story was that [the Israelis] appeared at Liberty State Park very quickly after the first plane hit. The other was that they were at the park location already". Either way, investigators wanted to know exactly what the men were expecting when they got there.

Before such issues had been fully explored, however, the investigation was shut down. Following what ABC News reported were "high-level negotiations between Israeli and U.S. government officials", a settlement was reached in the case of the five Urban Moving Systems suspects. Intense political pressure apparently had been brought to bear. The reputable Israeli daily Ha'aretz reported that by the last week of October 2001, some six weeks after the men had been detained, Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage and two unidentified "prominent New York congressmen" were lobbying heavily for their release.
Now we know why they were not charged, and then subsequently deported. It is my contention that these men knew in fact what was going to happen, and that's why they were cheering when the FIRST plane went into the WTC. That they would cheer such an event at all, is telling. Meanwhile, the sheeple continue being fed pro-Israel propaganda via the mainstream American media. It's working.

"It would be a strategic tragedy if the United States stabilizes Iraq, but is so weakened by that operation that the credibility of the president is so low that they couldn?t strike Iran."
