Headlined to H3 8/24/11

On Sunday, an Egyptian hacker published a picture of Egyptian soldiers raising the Egyptian flag in Sinai on October 6, 1973, on the website of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Egyptian hackers also managed to hack into the official Israeli Radio webpage to protest the death of the five Egyptian soldiers killed by the Israeli army. [1]

 

On August 19th, the conservative Jerusalem Post reported:

"Israel's strikes on the Gaza Strip in response to terror attacks that killed 8 Israelis on Thursday are part of efforts by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to thwart the Palestinians bid for UN statehood recognition Senior Fatah official Nabil Shaath claimed in a statement." [2]

Officials of Israel's Kadima party, headed by Tzipi Livni and the head of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Shaul Mofaz are pushing for another large-scale military offensive, including a ground invasion, against the Gaza Strip. [3]

Last week's deadly three-pronged attack by unidentified gunmen on Israeli soldiers and civilians near the Red Sea resort town of Eilat has not yet been linked to any group in Gaza, and both Hamas and the PRC have denied responsibility for the attacks.

Responsibility is defined by Webster's as a "state or fact of having a duty to deal with something. The state or fact of being accountable or to blame for something."

This reporter and Citizen of CONSCIENCE for House of Representatives 2012 states the fact that America's "special relationship" with Israel is not in the best interests of Americans!

I also comprehend that we the people have a "duty to deal" with that!

Case in Point:

In mid-July, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta revealed at a news conference that the Pentagon considers the commercial Internet to be "another operational theater of war"--and that StratCom [United States Strategic Command] and Cyber Command must be ready to take on more offensive roles in combating cyber assaults. [4]

Every hack attack "makes the case for even greater government encroachment on our civil liberties. Every new intrusion builds the case for government waging offensive forms of cyber-warfare to pre-emptively defend our national security. And StratCom now serves as the command center for conducting this 21st-century brand of war." [IBID]

In January 2012, The New York Times reported on the USA-Israeli Nuclear collaboration called The Stuxnet Worm.

The Stuxnet Worm is a "fringe benefit of a program launched by Israel with the help of U.S. cyber-forces to cripple Iran's nuclear capabilities with a computer worm--a rogue program similar to a virus. The "Stuxnet' worm was designed to interrupt the operation of centrifuges at the Natanz uranium enrichment plant, but now has been confirmed to have spread to other Iranian nuclear facilities, including Bushehr." [IBID]

Over the past two years, according to intelligence and military experts familiar with its operations, Israel's clandestine WMD facility in the Negev, known as the "Dimona has taken on a new, equally secret role -- as a critical testing ground in a joint American and Israeli effort to undermine Iran's efforts to make a bomb of its own. Behind Dimona's barbed wire, the experts say, Israel has spun nuclear centrifuges virtually identical to Iran's at Natanz, where Iranian scientists are struggling to enrich uranium. They say Dimona tested the effectiveness of the Stuxnet computer worm, a destructive program that appears to have wiped out roughly a fifth of Iran's nuclear centrifuges and helped delay, though not destroy, Tehran's ability to make its first nuclear arms.

"Though American and Israeli officials refuse to talk publicly about what goes on at Dimona, the operations there, as well as related efforts in the United States, are among the newest and strongest clues suggesting that the virus was designed as an American-Israeli project to sabotage the Iranian program"Officially, neither American nor Israeli officials will even utter the name of the malicious computer program, much less describe any role in designing it.

"How and when Israel obtained this kind of first-generation centrifuge remains unclear, whether from Europe, or the Khan network, or by other means. But nuclear experts agree that Dimona came to hold row upon row of spinning centrifuges. Another clue involves the United States".[an] expert added that Israel worked in collaboration with the United States in targeting Iran, but that Washington was eager for "plausible deniability.'" [5]

There is no "plausible' way to deny US and Israeli Nuclear Deceptions or what Mordechai Vanunu exposed in 1986 about Israel's Dimona Nuclear Weapons Factory
