The annual Tisha B’Av commemoration where Zionist Third Temple fundamentalists attempt to start building the Jewish Third Temple, which they hope will begin to the demolition of the al-Ḥaram al-Šarīf, Al Aqsa mosque. The only trouble is it could start a wider Middle East war between Zionists and Arabs: Israel ‘playing with fire and risking major crisis with Islamic world’, Arab League chief warns. This weekend is Tisha B’Av in Israel, the Jews annual mourning for the destruction of the second Temple in 70AD – is the Temple Mount and the idea of building a third Temple going to be a crucible for starting WWIII? Israel risks igniting ‘religious war’ over Jerusalem security measures, warns head of Arab League, The country is ‘playing with fire’ warns Ahmed Aboul Gheit. along with rising conflicts in the area?

Interview with Rev. Stephen Sizer, author of ‘Christian Zionism – Road Map to Armageddon’  – he discusses the conflict in Israel and Palestine leading to a wider war: Zionism and Israel government wanting an exclusively Jewish state; Zionist lobby trying to conflate Antisemitism with criticism of the Israeli state: Anti Semitism is not really a social phenomenon, it is instead a multi million pound industry. The more we spend on the fight against it, the more incidents are ‘recorded’ to justify  further spending   Al Aqsa Mosque;  how to diffuse the situation? Interview with Gilad Atzmon, Jewish and Israeli jazz musician and author of ‘The Wandering Who?’ about Jewish political identity: he thinks Israel not an apartheid or colonial system – but worse – because Jewish Israelis just want the Arab Palestinians gone. Israel not a colony, but has had a series of ‘foster mothers’. Rev Stephen Sizer talks about Zionist ‘psychological warfare’ Hasbara manual, how to further the Zionist cause, borrowed from the ‘how dare you’ strategy of shoplifters to wrong-foot and buy time. The four levels or strategies: 1) ingratiate themselves, to get you to join them in their Zionist views, 2) intimidate and attack you anonymously 3) intimidate others, target friends, family and work colleagues and bosses to turn them against you, 4) attempt to incriminate critics with criminal holocaust denial, Antisemitism and accusations of racism. Changing the definition of Antisemitism to include criticism of Israel to criminalise expressing support for Palestinian human rights. How Israel is affecting Yemen – Saudi and Israeli politics – Israeli weapons sold to Saudi Arabia – why is Saudi Arabia funding UK terrorism? and now boycotting Qatar? Theresa May on holiday in Switzerland – where money to fund ISIS goes through banks. Gilad Atzmon – Israel/Palestine is one state dominated by a fascist ideology.
