Jordanian Lawmakers Vote to Prohibit Natural Gas Imports From Israel

Good news. Last week hundreds of Jordanian protesters denounced the deal, and now the lower house of parliament has voted to suspend the agreement with Israel:

"Several legislators argued that the multi-billion-dollar deal violates Article 33, section two of the Jordanian constitution, which states, “Treaties and agreements which entail any expenditures to the Treasury of the State or affect the public or private rights of Jordanians shall not be valid unless approved by the parliament; and in no case shall the secret terms in a treaty or agreement be contrary to the overt terms.”

From the protests:

"Prominent national, youth and Islamic leaders took part in the demonstrations, where placards displaying anti-Israeli occupation slogans were raised.

The slogan placards read: “Together against the gas deal with the occupation. The gas deal is an occupation. The gas of the enemy is occupation. Down with the attempts to wipe out the Palestinian cause.”

Or it could be that people are anti semitic? Because one day this will be reality...

Zechariah 12:2-3
Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.

Man, General Mills should face some heat for their complicity. Food production is such a personal thing, I could see those concerned going at them hard. Was looking at their website it's loaded with empty platitudes:

"We are responsible
We put people first.
Respect for human rights is core to our commitment to conduct business in an ethical manner.
A healthy planet is also critical to our business.
We continue to make progress toward our commitment to sustainably source 100 percent of our 10 priority ingredients by 2020 – representing more than 50 percent of our annual raw material purchases."

Most of the companies I don't recognize the name, it will take some digging to find out who/what they really are.

You don’t say..

A fifth of Europeans believe a secret Jewish cabal runs the world, damning report into anti-Semitism reveals
  • 16,000 people from 16 European countries were surveyed on Jewish stereotypes
  • A fifth agreed that a secret network of Jews influences politics and economics
  • Fifth also said Jewish people 'exploit Holocaust victimhood for their own needs'
  • Jewish organisation called on Europe to do more to combat anti-Semitism
A fifth of Europeans believe that a secretive Jewish cabal controls world politics and economics, a damning report on anti-Semitism has found.


The same number also believe that Jews 'exploit Holocaust victimhood for their own needs', the European Jewish Association revealed at its annual conference in Paris.

The shock figures were revealed as Jewish leaders called on European governments to accept more responsibility for ending rising anti-Semitism on the continent.


It comes just days after a far-right terror attack in Germany targeting Turkish people, by a killer who had also confessed his belief in various anti-Semitic conspiracies.

The same survey also found a quarter of respondents agreed with the statement: 'Israel's policies make me understand why some people hate Jews'.

More than a third agreed with the assertion that 'during World War II, people from our nation suffered as much as Jews.'

The survey also concluded that Holocaust revisionism and belief in classic anti-Semitic stereotypes was more common in the east, while anti-Israel sentiment including anti-Semitic beliefs were more common in the west.

“If Americans were ever polled on it—and they never are—the majority who now object to increasing aid to Israel would also likely object to quasi-governmental and governmental positions being staffed by people who — by citizenship or sheer strength of identity politics — are primarily occupied with advancing Israeli interests rather than those of the United States. ”

Good Grief! Mexico and Canada are both part of North America.... wonder if their dual-citizenship members of the US government numbers equal Israels combined?

And people wonder how Jews control America. It should be called the Jewish Dream instead of the American Dream.
