An estimated 460,000 people gathered across the country on Saturday evening to protest for social change as part of the “March of the Million,” Channel 10 news reported.

Over 300,000 people were in Kikar Hamedina in Tel Aviv where a huge rally was taking place after a march through the streets of the city.

Student Union Chairman Itzik Shmueli called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to “Let us live in this country,” during a speech at the rally in Kikar Hamedina.

“Mr. Prime Minister, take a good look at us: We’re the new Israelis,” he told the hundreds of thousands of people who Read more…

Israel’s Chief of Staff urges readiness for all-out war

Israel’s Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi
The Israeli army chief has urged Tel Aviv to make preparations for an all-out war over the recent developments across the Middle East, a report says.

Israel’s Chief of Staff Lieutenant General Gabi Ashkenazi has said that given the recent revolution protests across Middle East, Israel must prepare for a battle in several theaters, Ynetnews quoted him as saying on Monday.

The outgoing military chief also said, “The connection between the different players requires us to contend with more than one theater.”

Ashkenazi warned of the transpiration of a “radical camp” in the Middle East, adding that “the moderate camp among the traditional Arab leadership is weakening.”

“Because of this spectrum, we must prepare for a conventional war…it would be a mistake to prepare for non-conventional war or limited conflicts and then expect that overnight the forces will operate in an all-out war,” he went on to say.

In December 2010, Israel’s Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom threatened Palestinians in the Gaza Strip with a new war, saying that Tel Aviv would have to “respond and respond with all our force” if the Palestinian resistance fighters did not stop firing their home-made rockets into Israel.

In late December 2008, Israel launched a devastating war against the coastal Palestinian territory where more than 1,400 Palestinians — mostly civilians — were killed in three weeks of relentless Israeli land, sea and air strikes.

Something Large This Way Comes

And so it picks up steam.  What started in Iceland,  instigated by Wall St,  has now engulfed Tunisia,  Yeman,  Sudan,  Egypt,  Syria,  Jordan and others yet to be made manifest.  Saudi Prince Turki bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud has warned the country’s royal family to step down and flee before a military coup or a popular uprising overthrows the kingdom.

Julianne the Apostate can take the credit of kicking this ball down the hill as it was his release of some of those documents which demonstrated selected venality amongst certain countries’ leadership.  It would have happened anyway,  but the Apostate,  it seems,  was the spark.  How this could be to Israel’s benefit is beyond me.

The control system is blowing apart at the seams.  Anyone thinking the unrest across North Africa to the Middle East is part of a planned paradigm has got to be crazy.  Certainly,  there are organizational forces at work trying to ride on top of the chaos,  but all Read more…
