    Pardon my stubbornness but are these people sarcastic or do they seriously dipslay this morally corrupt and cynical message?

      Of course it’s sarcastic. Do you think that a Zioinst shmock would thank Obama for not seeing reality through the eyes of a Palastinian child?

      They are being sarcastical with a healthy human cynicism. Now if there could only be more than five or six individuals.

    Loverly! But what would have happened, Peter, if “stones” did NOT rhyme with “drones”? What then?

      Nobody has a problem with Germany footing the entire bill. The broke it and they have to pay for it. The rest of us do have a problem with it since it wasn’t our fault. Quite the contrary.

    Wow! They could be a new party! I estimate maybe 20 activists in the video. Probably good soccer players, too, so they could call themselves Forward. No, wait, that’s taken. What about Red Flag? They’d have garnered 0.000633 Knesset seats in the last election. Progress!

    Cynicism apart, Israel is the only place in the region where minorities are not in existential danger. Apartheid is a powerful slogan but the above situation is a reality and in the end reality always defeats slogans.

      “Israel is the only place in the region where minorities are not in existential danger.”

      Are you kidding? Oh you mean missing out Gaza and the West Bank. Well since Israel rules Gaza and the West Bank with murderous intent Palestinians most definitely ARE in “existential” danger. Palestinian land and resources are being stolen by a rapacious and fundamentally vile group of Jewish Supremacists. Their children are kidnapped, tortured, abused and murdered by a people who cannot see the common humanity in anyone not of the “Chosen” and their homes and way of life demolished in the march towards the Jewish Empire of Israel.

      And yet still these horrendous monsters, these Israelis and their abettors throughout the Diaspora cry “but we’re the victims” “ooh the Holocaust” “whimper whimper antisemitism.” Such gross hypocrisy has never been seen in all of world history, even the American Empire and Victorian British come in a very very distant joint second place.

      And then the Israelis think that throwing some scraps at the Palestinians who manage to eke out an existence amongst them as second class citizens is enough to cover their crimes and pardon their cultivated bigotry of all non-Jews. When so many of the rulers they elected have openly called for Palestinians to be expelled on the basis of not being Jewish? A few scraps aren’t anywhere near enough to cover the inhumanity that lies at the cankerous heart of Zionism and amongst its adherents.

        Ecru,
        Thank you for setting “Ivri” straight far better than I could. Pointing out blatant Israeli human rights violations is not anti-Semitism. We Americans are not hiding our eyes anymore. Along with the rest of the world we are watching, and we don’t like what we see.

      Constantly comparing Israel to “the region” is emblematic of the racist mindset that views Arabs as both a monolith and as lesser human beings, incapable of democracy.

      Keep beating that drum. Meanwhile, the world will continue to learn about how Israel wiped out 500 Palestinian villages in 1948 and continues to raze homes and villages, on both sides of the Green Line.

      By the way, there are still about 27,000 Jews in Iran who are refusing to leave Iran. They, too, are a minority.

      Try to think before you type. You’re embarrassing yourself.

      Israel is rather one of the primary places where a minority have been ethnically cleansed en masse and treated badly for the longest time. So, I would rather say your “cynism apart”.

      Israel is the only place in the world where an overwhelming indigenous majority (67% at time of 1947 partition plan) was turned into an oppressed minority through massacres and ethnic cleansing.

      @ ivri “Israel is the only place in the region where minorities are not in existential danger”

      Great. Now about the non-Israeli folk in territory “outside the State of Israel” since Israel was declared and recognized as it asked to be recognized

      “MY DEAR MR. PRESIDENT: I have the honor to notify you that the state of Israel has been proclaimed as an independent republic within frontiers approved by the General Assembly of the United Nations in its Resolution of November 29, 1947, and that a provisional government has been charged to assume the rights and duties of government for preserving law and order within the boundaries of Israel, for defending the state against external aggression, and for discharging the obligations of Israel to the other nations of the world in accordance with international law. The Act of Independence will become effective at one minute after six o’clock on the evening of 14 May 1948, Washington time.”

    Protester Heckles Obama over Israeli Killings, Rachel Corrie Death

    President Obama gave a key address to Israeli students in Jerusalem on Thursday, where he was interrupted by a heckler. The protester was an Arab-Israeli student named Rabiyah Aid. He told the Israeli newspaper Ynet he had called out to Obama: “Have you really come to promote the peace process or to provide Israel with more weapons to kill the Palestinian people? On your way here did you see the [West Bank] fence or the killer of Rachel Corrie?” Rachel Corrie was the U.S. student crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer in Gaza on March 16, 2003, while attempting to block the demolition of a Palestinian home.

    I am always amused When pseudo-intellectuals like Adam Horowitz Continuously mock those who correctly point out that Israel is the only democracy in the region, And then go on to post a video like this depicting a handful of morons engaging in political behavior that would have them Imprisoned or executed in most arab countries.

      IL1948 says: “who correctly point out that Israel is the only democracy in the region”.

      If a group has to keep people of different fait or ethnicity expelled and denationalized to maintain being the dominant group its Apartheid, not democrazy.

      America was a democracy during the era of slavery – if you were white. Indigenous Australians weren’t granted voting rights until 1967, but Australia was a democracy.

      Just saying Israel is a democracy doesn’t cut it. In the West Bank voting rights are granted or denied by Israel based of religious discrimination.

      PS – have you not been watching the news for the last X years? You call Adam Horowitz a “pseudo-intellectual” but then claim “Israel is the only democracy in the region”. OK, you’re an intellectual: a very bad one with false information.

      ‘correctly’ ?? Odd there’s no mention of democracy in the Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel. There is mention of a “constitution” under which an elected government would be legitimized.

      Thus far there’s no constitution. In its 64 years, Israel has NEVER HAD a legally elected Government, under a constitution.

    “Israel is the only democracy in the region”

    Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq, Tunisia and Egypt are the only democracies in the region.
    Israel is the only democracy for colonists* in the region.

    [*] excludes 86% of the indigenous Palestinian population of Israel/Palestine
