During my activist life I have traveled to many of the counties that Western colonial/capitalist leaders characterized as despotic totalitarian states – the old Soviet Union, North Korea, Cuba before 1989 – but in none of those states did I witness the systematic mechanism of population control and scientific repression that I witness in “democratic” Israel.

I have been Tweeting more than Blogging for some time, but I couldn't resist this one:
US Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump is “endangered” by Israel for his perceived neutrality in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, similar to former president John F. Kennedy (JFK), an American political analyst says.I think Trump has the Khomeinist endorsement--until we turn off the Zio-hologram projector and he just goes poof, of course.
“Because he is a threat to the satanic Zionist conspiracy, he is also endangered as was JFK,” said Steven D. Kelley, a former CIA and NSA contractor.
“JFK directly attacked the CIA, the Federal Reserve (US central bank) and Israel’s nuclear program; this is why he was assassinated,” Kelley told Press TV on Monday.
Kennedy served as the 35th US President from January 1961 until his assassination in November 22, 1963.
The President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, known unofficially as the Warren Commission, was established by former President Lyndon B. Johnson in November 1963 to investigate the assassination of Kennedy.
The commission's final report released in September concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald acted entirely alone in assassinating Kennedy.
However, many researchers are also unconvinced by the official government account and argue that Oswald was part of a conspiracy to kill Kennedy, perhaps in connection with Israel, Cuba or the former Soviet Union.
Israel had a motive to kill Kennedy because the president was opposed to the regime's nuclear weapons program at Dimona which he believed could instigate a nuclear arms-race in the Middle East. [...]

"The spy dolphin was also equipped with small arrows and bullets to enable it to target humans, including Hamas special forces." (Fars News)
They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning:
The divers of the Palestinian Hamas resistance movement have seized a Israeli-made robot dolphin equipped with espionage equipment, including video-recording cameras, media reports said.
The Palestinian resistance movement said the dolphin was taken offshore Gaza by the naval unit of Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, the Arabic-language Al-Qods newspaper quoted informed sources as saying on Wednesday.
Hamas said that the dolphin was also equipped with remote-controlled equipment.
The spy dolphin was also equipped with small arrows and bullets to enable it to target humans, including Hamas special forces.
In 2012, an eagle with an Israeli tag was captured in Sudan and touted as a Mossad spy.
Two years earlier, an Egyptian official said Israel-controlled sharks could be involved in a number of attacks on tourists in the Red Sea.

Nicely conspiratorial title. Anyone who wants to have an opinion on Iran should follow their state-controlled press:
Commander of Iran's Basij (volunteer) Force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi called for boycotting the goods produced by those western countries that have imposed sanctions against Iran during the last 36 years, and warned that they are trying to capture the Iranian market.Let's hope so.
"Iran's enemies and those who imposed sanctions against the country are seeking to capture our market right after the final agreement (between Iran and the world powers); we should not let this happen," Brigadier General Naqdi said, addressing a conference in Tehran on Wednesday.
"People should boycott the commodities of these criminals," he added.
The Basij commander, meantime, said that the goods which can be produced in Iran should not be imported at all.
Naqdi had also warned on Tuesday of Washington's continued animosity towards the Islamic Republic, and said the contents of the last Tuesday nuclear agreement between Tehran and the world powers in Vienna boosts Iranians' hatred for the US.
"Any Iranian who reads the Vienna documents will hate the US 100 times more (than the past)," Naqdi said.
He also referred to the UN Security Council's Resolution 2231 approved on Monday, and said, "All paragraphs of the resolution that the US proposed to the UNSC are full of enmity towards Iran and show the US deep grudge against the Iranian nation."
"The US needs the agreement merely to legalize the sanctions and continue pressures against Iran," Naqdi said, adding that Washington sees the agreement as a tool to provide the ground for military aggression against Iran. [...]

North Korea is making a great leap forward in the field of strange totalitarian gibberish:
Marshal Kim Jong Un, inspecting the construction site of the Paektusan Songun Youth Power Station in April last, highly praised the young builders there for their heroic feats, saying the DPRK is the power of youth.Have a Songun Shabbos!
The birth of a new historical term the power of youth is a historic event that brought about a radical turn in humankind's view on power, says Rodong Sinmun Thursday in an article.
By setting forth the idea on the power of youth for the first time in history, the Workers' Party of Korea clarified the important goal of struggle and principled issues in building a power and consolidating its status.
The building of the power of youth means, in essence, a drive for training reliable builders of a prosperous country and pillars of the country's future. A military power and an economic power can be successfully built and their dignity and might can be glorified for all ages only when their building is simultaneously pushed forward along with the building of the power of youth. This is a Juche-based viewpoint on the building of a power. This was clearly proved by the lesson drawn from the countries, which had once been famous as world-class powers, lost their status, having their glorious days recorded only in history books.
It is only the DPRK which has set an epoch-making example in settling the issue of youth, the first of its kind in history, and built a power of youth both in name and reality. The building of the Juche-based power of youth, along with the invincible political and ideological power and military power, is the most precious success made by the party and the people of the DPRK in the drive for building a thriving nation.
The DPRK is, indeed, the greatest power in history.
The successful building of the power of youth provided a sure guarantee for further consolidating the country's status as a political and ideological power and military power and dynamically stepping up the overall construction of a highly civilized socialist economic power in reliance on the powerful drive force.
The article calls on the young people to straightly and dynamically advance toward a final victory, holding aloft the torch of the revolution as befitting the masters of the power of youth under the guidance of Kim Jong Un.

Iranian "Deputy Top Commander": demands for inspections are "cruel", "irrational" and "illegal" and will be met with "lead"
Poor Obama. He can't just issue an executive order lifting all the sanctions on Iran and get away with it:
Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazzayeri underlined that no foreign national would ever be ever allowed to visit or inspect Iran's military centers.
"Visiting or Inspection of Iran's centers under any title, including managed access … will not be acceptable," Jazzayeri said on Friday.
He reiterated that opinion polls also indicate that a majority of the Iranian people are opposed to the inspection of the country's military sites.
On Thursday Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister and senior negotiator Seyed Abbas Araqchi told the state TV upon arrival at the Vienna airport that "I have explained this many times that there is no difference between inspection and visiting the military and non-military centers, that are, in fact, non-nuclear; we don’t accept such a thing."
"What has been raised within the framework of the Additional Protocol pertains to managed access to these centers," Araqchi underlined.
In relevant remarks in late April, General Jazzayeri underlined that inspection of the country's military sites would be impossible.
"Everyone should know that in our view, visiting the military centers is completely impossible since it is among our redlines and we will not allow anyone to opine on such issues," Jazzayeri said in an interview with Rah-e Dana news website.
He also advised the Iranian negotiators participating in nuclear talks with the world powers to keep vigilant and remain suspicious of the opposite party's intentions.
Also on April 9, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined that Iran doesn’t allow any inspection of its defensive and military centers.
"They (the foreigners) shouldn’t be allowed at all to penetrate into the country's security and defensive boundaries under the pretext of supervision, and the country's military officials are not permitted at all to allow the foreigners to cross these boundaries or stop the country's defensive development under the pretext of supervision and inspection," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a large number of Iranian people in Tehran.
In late May, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh underlined that the West's request to inspect Iran's sensitive military sites is like asking for permission to spy on the country, and Tehran would never accept such irrational demands.
"We will not allow inspection of Iran's military and defense centers and control over them under any pretext, and we see the West's request as officially asking for spying on Iran," Brigadier General Hajizadeh said in a meeting in Tehran with foreign military attaches and high-raking Iranian military officials and commanders.
Underlining that such demands are "cruel", "irrational" and "illegal", Brigadier General Hajizadeh stressed that as Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has said "Iran will not allow them to do managed or unmanaged inspection of its military and defense sites from any distance and in any form, and will give such demands a response that spying actions deserve, a response with lead".

In profound reverence for President Kim Il Sung who provided a firm foundation for friendship between the two countries with Hafez Al-Assad, former president of Syria, and extended material aid and moral support to the just cause of the Syrian people, the Damascus Provincial Office decided to name the park to be built in Kim Il Sung Street, Kafar Sussa District, Damascus after Kim Il Sung. The decision was adopted at the 25th meeting of the Executive Council of the Provincial Office with unanimous approval on May 18.Just in time for Ba'athist regime to be snuffed out?
