    When the government tries to silence a history, a light is shed on the nation's biggest taboo. This is the story of those who fought to erase Palestine and created an Israeli landscape of denial. For more info: www.sevendeadlymyths.com =================== SYNOPSIS Having grown up in Ariel, Lia Tarachansky speaks about segregation as while situated deep in the West Bank, he settlement is completely isolated from its surroundings and the nearby Palestinian villages. "It was like living on an island suspended from the sky by strings", she says in an upcoming ground-breaking documentary that looks at Israeli collective identity through the prism of its biggest taboo - what happened in 1948. It was this very history the government attempted to silence when in 2009 a new law proposal suggested a three-year jail term for anyone who looks at the events of that year critically. It was then, three years after the holocaust that the nascent Jewish state was created in a bloody war that led to two-thirds of the Palestinian people becoming refugees. Those who fled or were expelled to this day remain in camps throughout the Arab world, the West Bank and Gaza. In her film, Tarachansky follows Israeli veterans of that war as they struggle to untangle their memory and years of denial in an erased landscape of segregation. Drawing a clear line between the events of that year and the continuation of that displacement today, the film revolutionizes the way we see the conflict. While the law proposal passed parliament, it failed to silence criticism over what happened 1948, instead sparking a nation-wide debate and a movement of historians and journalists to explore what that history means for Israel's national narrative. This May Israel marks 65 years since that year when the Middle East was changed forever and the modern conflict took on its present form. Through her personal story of "seeing" the Palestinians for the first time, Tarachansky captures a rarely-seen inside look into why Israelis do what they do, and how they see themselves in the changing Middle East.

    • N. Korea threatens new nuclear test, says rockets are designed to carry warheads (Second Coming Watch Update #299)

      1. According to the Associated Press, North Korea's top governing body warned that the regime will conduct its third nuclear test in defiance of U.N. punishment, and made clear that its long-range rockets are designed to carry not only satellites but also warheads aimed at striking the United States. North Korea's National Defense Commission denounced the UN resolution condemning the country's long-range rocket launch as a banned missile activity and expanding sanctions against the regime. 2. According to Reuters, Russia warned Israel and the West against launching military strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities but suggested Tehran should be quicker to cooperate over inspections of its nuclear sites. Speaking at his annual news conference, the Russian Foreign Minister said, "Attempts to prepare and implement strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities and on its infrastructure as a whole are a very, very dangerous idea. We hope these ideas will not come to fruition." 3. According to The Associated Press, the top commander of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard insists his forces control shipping in the Strait of Hormuz, the gateway for one fifth of the world's oil. The commander's remarks, which were posted on the Guard's website, were apparently aimed at highlighting the Guard's control of the strategic waterway. Military officials say Iran has a plan to close the Strait but insist that the country's Supreme Leader would make the final decision. 4. According to Fox News, four American F-16 fighter jets have been sent to Egypt as part of a foreign aid package that critics say should have been scrapped when the nation elected a leader who has called the U.S. President a liar and urged that hatred of Jews be instilled in children. Sixteen F-16s and 200 Abrams tanks are to be given to the Egyptian government before the end of the year under a foreign aid deal signed in 2010 with then-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. However, President Morsi's verbal attacks on the Jewish state and on the United States has caused concern over how the military aid will be used in the future. 5. According to The Associated Press, Palestinians plan to reassure Israel's public that they are partners for peace, after a strong showing of Israeli moderates in parliament elections ended the domination of hawkish parties. The activists said that a letter with such a message will be sent to Israeli legislators and the media in coming days. Palestinian officials say they are pleasantly surprised by the surge of centrist parties but doubt this will fundamentally alter Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's policies.

      • 'Doomsday Clock' to remain at 5 minutes till midnight (Second Coming Watch Update #296)


        from Gospel Light Society / Added

        47 Plays / / 0 Comments

        1. According to Live Science, scientists announced today that the hands of the infamous "Doomsday Clock" will remain firmly in their place at five minutes to midnight -- symbolizing humans' destruction -- for the year 2013. Keeping their outlook for the future of humanity quite dim, the group of scientists also wrote an open letter to President Barack Obama, urging him to partner with other global leaders to act on climate change. The clock is a symbol of the threat of humanity's imminent destruction from nuclear or biological weapons, climate change and other human-caused disasters. 2. According to The Times of Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated his oft-stated stance that, under the current circumstances, Israel could not make peace with the Palestinians. In a pre-election interview, Netanyahu said that if Israel were to pull out of the West Bank, it would fall into the hands of the country's enemies. He said, "In the Middle East, any territory that we evacuate will be captured by Iran. The stronger we are, the more we will be able to guarantee our future and make peace with our neighbors." 3. According to The Times of Israel, Israeli soldiers patrolling near the Gaza Strip discovered a large tunnel originating from the Palestinian enclave, apparently designed to facilitate a terror attack. The army said the shaft was part of an elaborate terror plan against Israeli targets or an attempt to kidnap soldiers. The IDF deemed the tunnel a "serious security threat" as it was the same type of tunnel that was used in 2006 to ambush and kidnap Israeli soldiers. 4. According to Fox News, a longtime substitute teacher in New Jersey has been fired after he shared a Bible verse with a student and gave the child a Bible upon request. He was accused of breaking two policies - distributing religious literature on school grounds and another policy that directs teachers to be neutral when discussing religious material. Hiram Sasser, director of litigation at Liberty Institute, said, "It's unfortunate that the school district chose the path of religious hostility and intolerance against a retired man serving his community and simply responding to a student's intellectual curiosity." 5. According to Great Britain's Telegraph newspaper, North Korea vowed to strengthen its defences amid concerns the country may conduct a nuclear test as a follow-up to last month's long-range rocket launch. Citing U.S. hostility, the country's foreign ministry said in a memorandum that North Korea will "continue to strengthen its deterrence against all forms of war." Reports said that North Korea had informed China that it is planning to conduct a nuclear test this week. The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:23: "May the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."

        • Syria and Iran threaten retaliation against Israel (Second Coming Watch Update #302)

          Released: February 1, 2013 By: Daniel Whyte III 1. According to The Associated Press, Syria and Iran have threatened to retaliate for an Israeli air raid near Damascus. The Syrian ambassador to Lebanon said Damascus has "the option to retaliate." He stated that he cannot predict when the retaliation will occur and said it is up to relevant authorities to prepare for it. In Iran, the Deputy Foreign Minister was quoted as saying that the raid on Syria will have significant implications for the Israeli city of Tel Aviv. 2. According to The Washington Post, Russia has joined Lebanon in condemning Israel's air strike on an arms convoy inside Syria. Hez-boll-ah, which is closely aligned with both Syria and Iran, condemned the airstrike as "barbaric aggression" and expressed "full solidarity with Syria's army and people." Russia, Syria's chief patron, said the strike would constitute "unprovoked attacks on targets in the territory of a sovereign country, which blatantly violates the U.N. Charter and is unacceptable, no matter the motives to justify it." 3. According to The Associated Press, a magnitude-6.8 earthquake shook offices, toppled supermarket shelves and broke windows in north-central Chile, where people fled some buildings in panic. A 50-year-old woman died of a heart attack attributed to fear during the quake. Authorities said that damage was limited and discounted the possibility of a tsunami. 4. According to Ynet News, a United Nations fact-finding mission says the Israeli government's settlement policy has violated the rights of Palestinians. The panel's report to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva says the settlements exist for the exclusive benefit of Israeli Jews, creating a system of total segregation. The investigators called on Israel to halt settlement expansion and withdraw all Jewish settlers from the West Bank. 5. According to The Associated Press, the United Nations nuclear agency has told member nations that Iran is poised for a major technological upgrade of its uranium enrichment program. The move would vastly speed up Tehran's ability to make material that can be used for both reactor fuel and nuclear warheads. Iran's nuclear agency has plans to install high-technology centrifuges at its main enriching site. The machines are estimated to be able to enrich up to five times faster than the present equipment. The Bible says in 1 Peter 5:4: "And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away."

                For educational purposes. Remix of an old audio soundtrack from archive.org. He sounds like the guy from Haunted Mansion! A nice cogent argument about Zionist control of America - and the world. No profanity or nudity, there is some strong language. Please be advised there are also a couple of very quick graphic photos from the Israel wars against Palestine, and some anti-religious artwork some could find offensive. Viewer discretion is therefore advised.
