TwitterTwo Zionist diplomats, including the entity’s ambassador to Switzerland, were recalled Wednesday to face disciplinary measures for posting political comments on their Twitter accounts, the Zionist JPost news website reported.

A third employee, who works at the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem, is also to face disciplinary actions for the same reason.

The decision to take measures, that could eventually lead to their dismissal, came following a report by the so-called National Research Group (NRG) on the tweets.

The three diplomats are Yigal Caspi, a senior diplomat and the envoy to Switzerland, Assaf Moran and Yaron Gamburg.

George Galloway Made It Again

By Gilad Atzmon

Jewish anger as George Galloway gets BBC invitation to appear on this week’s Question Time. Programme will come from Finchley, home to large Jewish community

Mike Freer, the Conservative MP for Finchley and Golders Green, said the invitation was ‘deliberately provocative’.  He added: ‘The BBC can’t have done it by accident.  The shameless  MP,  makes it sounds as if the BBC should ask the Chief Rabbi for a green light before it sets its program.

‘Given what’s going on in the world it is a slap in the face for the local community. It lacks sensitivity,’ MP Freer said, and I wonder, what is happening in the world  that should prevent MP Galloway from appearing in a Jewish neighborhood? Furthermore. how inviting a pro-Palestinian MP is a ‘slap in the face’ to anyone? Quite the opposite, it is  actually a golden …

anti-netanyahu[1]Obama-Netanyahu bout over the US-Iran nuclear deal has just entered into its final stage. Barack Obama’s statement during his State of Union address that “American want him to talk to Iran rather go to war with Iran”, really pissed-off the powerful Jewish Lobby which now controls both US Congress and Senate. Immediately after Obama’s address, Speaker of the House John Boehner sent an official invitation to Netanyahu to address both houses before Israeli elections in March without first consulting with the White House, which is a normal practice.

The White House announced that Obama will not meet Netanyahu if arrives in Washington to address the Congress over Iran’s nuclear issue. In response, Netanyahu said that he “would go wherever he is invited.” Knowing Netanyahu’s past performance, he never needed government’s invitation to visit European or North American nations as long as he is invited by powerful…

It is clear that any attempt to draw the West’s attention to Saudi Arabia’s history of glaring human rights violations, would require an urgent amendment to the terminology we regularly use to describe the Saudi regime.

The most genial words have been pouring in from across the world for King Abdullah, the “reformer”.

President Obama cancelled his trip to the Taj Mahal to fly to Saudi Arabia.

In his statement on the death of King Abdullah, Obama spoke about the king’s initiatives “that will outlive him as an enduring contribution to the search for peace in the region”.

The National Defense University in the US announced an essay competition to pay tribute to the deceased Saudi monarch.

The Japanese government praised him as a “peacekeeper”.
