How Israel Went Nuclear

editor 19 September 2017

By Shimon Peres.. The father of Israel’s nuclear deterrent reveals how it was built. An exclusive excerpt from No Room For Small Dreams, Shimon Peres’ posthumous autobiography. It was October 24, 1956, at the villa in Sèvres where the French and Israeli leadership were meeting to finalize the plans for Operation Suez. Ben-Gurion and I stood in one of the mansion’s sweeping spaces; it was at once a ballroom, an art museum, and a well-stocked saloon. Across the way, French foreign minister Christian Pineau and defense minister Maurice Bourgès-Maunoury were deep in conversation, but otherwise unoccupied. I sensed an opportunity, perhaps the perfect moment. [Photo top right: The Dimona nuclear power plant in the southern Israeli Negev desert, 2002. (Photo: Thomas Coex/AFP/Getty Images)].

editor 1 June 2017

By Ben Cohen.. As further details emerge of the brutal murder of an Orthodox Jewish woman in a Paris suburb at the hands of a Muslim assailant last month, French Jews are increasingly worried and angered by what one prominent member of the community called an “organized silence” surrounding the case.

Dr. Sarah Halimi — a 66-year-old pensioner living in the Paris suburb of Belleville — was murdered in the early hours of April 4 by Kada Traore, a 27-year-old immigrant from Mali.

France: Emmanuel Macron, “Useful Idiot” of Islamism

editor 11 May 2017

By Yves Mamou.. Emmanuel Macron, a “Useful Infidel,” is not a supporter of terrorism or Islamism. It is worse: he does not even see the threat. Louizi’s article (Mohamed Louizi, author of the book “Why I Quit Muslim Brotherhood”, ed.), gave names and dates, explaining how Macron’s political movement has largely been infiltrated by Muslim Brotherhood militants. Is Macron an open promoter of Islamism in France? It is more politically correct to say that he is a “globalist” and an “open promoter of multiculturalism”. As such, he does not consider Islamism a national threat because the French nation, or, as he has said, French culture, does not really exist.

How Think Tanks Became Engines of Royal Propaganda

editor 3 February 2017

By Jacob Soll.. And what their French origins, and their waning and rising relevance to the power structures over the centuries, say about the new Washington. Think tanks are odd institutions. Experts solemnly line up, often to defend a specific political or economic cause, and whether they represent the Heritage Foundation or the Brookings Institution, and no matter how fine the expert, his or her findings will, most likely, be in line with the ideological leanings of the institution.

Israel is the legal occupant of the West Bank, says the Court of Appeal of Versailles, France

editor 17 January 2017

By Dreuz.info – Jean Patrick Grumberg.. In a historical trial carefully « forgotten » by the media, the 3rd Chamber of the Court of Appeal of Versailles declares that Israel is the legal occupant of the West Bank*.

When I first learned that the Court of Appeal of Versailles ruled that West bank settlements and occupation of Judea Samaria by Israel is unequivocally legal under international law, in a suit brought by the Palestinian Authority against Jerusalem’s light rail built by French companies Alstom and Veolia, that received no media coverage, I decided to put to work my years of Law Studies in France, and I meticulously analyzed the Court ruling.
