Hillary Clinton expresses alarm for Israeli Jews, and not one word about Palestinian victims

US Politics

The first presidential debate for the Democratic party is taking place in Las Vegas tonight. Hillary Clinton will be center stage. And Hillary Clinton is alarmed by attacks against Israelis:

CRJy4vVWUAAqQAl

There is not a word in that statement about Palestinians, dozens of whom have been killed in recent days. There is not even a signal in this statement that Palestinians living under occupation for nearly 50 years might have a right to resist. The entire statement is from the standpoint of Israeli Jews. Notice the empathy, the comment about praying and looking over your shoulder.

If you want to understand why American politics is busted, and how far we have to go in changing the discourse, you need only read that statement. And yes: this statement is pitched to an American audience, of donors. In a word, Haim Saban. (It also explains why neoconservatism isn’t going away anytime soon; because neoconservatism is a hardline Zionist response to Middle East politics, and there are hardline Zionists inside the Democratic Party.)

    Hillary is a hateful and immoral Zio-supremacist who defends Jewish supremacism in/and a supremacist “Jewish State” and related past and on-going (war) crimes, belligerence and intransigence.

    Like all Zio-supremacists, she believes that Jews are entitled to do unto others acts of injustice and immorality they would not have others do unto them.

        To advocate, undertake, support, justify and/or defend a particular brand of immorality and injustice because you believe in it is bad enough. To do it not because you believe in it but because it pays well and/or is a good career move is worse (IMO).

        Katie, whether she believes or doesn’t believe totally in a Zio-supremacist Israel is not really (IMHO) that material. She is a whore just like Rubio is a whore; and anyone else is a whore, who takes Zionist campaign money in exchange for an understanding that, if successful in their candidacy, they will support the Zionist state virtually unquestioningly; and turn a blind eye to the ongoing crimes it commits. Even if la Clinton were not an “Israel, right or wrong” believer her credibility with the non-Zionist world (that’s most of humanity…) is shot to pieces by this type of pandering so it’s “lose; lose”.
        I’m not American; if I were, I would be as worried by such as la Clinton as by all the other politicians who aspire to the highest office on the back of the Israel lobby’s bank accounts: what they do is put innocent Americans in the metaphorical and literal firing line from any blow-back from the Ziopaths’ acts and policies. Were I American, in November I would find it difficult to vote for any of the current array of potential candidates since the I/P position of each disgusts me!

      Not, she believes. Rather, she claims to believe.

      Some of the recently released e-mails show Hillary relaying e-mails from Sidney Blumenthal that were distinctly sympathetic towards the Palestinians and unsympathetic towards Israel.

      It is exactly because of who Hilary Clinton is and what she stands for that Americans cannot possibly vote her for President. A candidate is needed who does not allow America to be led by a Zionist lead,that allows America to regain its rightful status as the example of Justice and Freedom for all. Hilary Clinton will only make Americans a bigger target than it already is and destabilize America more Internationally than it already is. Israel needs to be brought to account for its crimes.

      Unfortunately, Clinton’s words resonate.

      When a cop is arrogant and abusive, throwing things at or attacking other cops is not a wise plan. Every politician will come to their side.

      Netanyahu incites and Palestinians rage. Politicians come to his side.

      I see Palestinians being in a fishbowl, without benefit of perspective.

      Marwan Barghouti’s view that the world will have to pay the price for not standing up, seems to me an unthought through strategy.

      If Israeli Arabs launched a serious campaign for equality, the whole world would embrace it. Clinton would be saying something quite different. Agents of change would be empowered. The Greater Israel people would have something to fear.

    The only way to get Americans to care about what is going on in Palestine, is to get Americans to care about what Israel has done to their country. Palestinians will be free when every American knows about Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty, the Lavon affair, its spying, the Israeli push for the war with Iraq, a war with Syria and Iran, and Israel’s involvement in many other sordid affairs. Yes, this will lead to charges of “anti Semitism,” but I am telling you, nothing will change till Americans understand the ugliness of Israel’s government and history.

      That’s what gets people’s attention, not so much how others are being hurt, but how they themselves are hurt by the actions of others. There are so many dirty deeds, past and present, that need front page news. I’m sure the survivors of USS Liberty would love to give their accounts.

      The true meaning of anti-semitism and anti-semite has been lost, thanks to AIPAC, ADL, et al, and replaced with the new definition specifically for the zionist state and its deadly policies, that being anyone who criticizes the state of Israel.

        October 14, 2015, 10:18 am

        Marnie, since you live in Israel, could you tell us whether or not Israeli I.D. cards indicate nationality?

        On another thread “jon s” wrote: “Contrary to what Marnie says, Israeli id cards no longer indicate nationality.” – See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2015/10/military-jerusalem-israelis#comment-802311

        But according to this mondoweiss article, “Discrimination is legal, there are no Israelis: Reading the Supreme Court’s decisions on Israeli nationality”- See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2014/06/discrimination-decisions-nationality#sthash.pYgWcEpn.gxE3DFTm.dpuf :

        Many Israelis are comfortable with the notion that the “nationality” section in our identification cards was cancelled in the year 2002; they would point at the line of asterisks replacing the word “Jewish” or “Arab” or “other” in the IDs issued after this date. But this is nothing but an extremely transparent smokescreen.

        For the appointed officials in charge of the different discrimination junctions, a split second is enough to correctly identify the “national identity” of the citizen standing in front of them with a blue Israeli ID. Jews – and only Jews – have the date of birth registered according to the Hebrew calendar. If this is not enough, IDs of non-Jews are the only ones with a seemingly innocent section for the first name of the grandfather. – See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2014/06/discrimination-decisions-nationality#sthash.pYgWcEpn.gxE3DFTm.dpuf

        “jon s” promised himself never to lie on mondoweiss, so I am very confused about this.

      • YoniFalic
        October 14, 2015, 10:31 am

        Whether or not the card includes a field for לְאוֹם, one can determine immediately on any card whether or not the holder is Jewish on the basis of the presence of the Hebrew birth date. If the Israeli government did not want such a capability, it would be trivial to include Hebrew, Arabic, and Gregorian birth date on all cards — which would make sense because Hebrew and Arabic are used for field identification.

        As I posted on the other thread, my blue israel ID (teudat zehut) has a space for nationality
        לְאוֹם that does not have yehudi but ********. I don’t give a rat’s ass what Jon says. Most of the people at the absorption center where we were had the same thing under nationality. I recently had to renew the card when I moved and I still have ******** under nationality. Jon says different. So?

        Gee Kris, I have to start reading all of the articles here – I missed this one. Also on my ID card, my DOB is not according to the Hebrew calendar! Wow, no nationality and no Hebrew birth date? Actually, that’s just fine by me.

      • YoniFalic
        October 15, 2015, 7:53 am

        My ID card has no nationality (לאום) but has a Hebrew date.

        I have never seen an ID card for a Jew without the Hebrew date, but the government may be playing games because people treated as eligible for “return” are not always considered Jewish according to Orthodox interpretation of Halakhah.

        Someone, whose nationality was еврейский (Hebrew/Jewish) by USSR standards, was often not Jewish by Orthodox standards. Non-Ashkenazi Jews in the USSR most of the time did not have еврейский on Soviet ID cards. Many Israeli Rabbis consider all US converts to Judaism to be non-Jews.

        There is also a new biometric card with a chip on it. Maybe לאום has been moved to the chip.

        12:50 P.M. The victim of the stabbing attack in Kiryat Ata has been identified as a Jewish Israeli man. According to initial assessments he is the victim of a failed revenge attack by another Israeli Jew who assumed he was an Arab because of his Middle-Eastern appearance.

        I guess it was another Jew attacked merely for the sake of being a Jew (and not looking Jewish enough)

      Hophmi, I will admit that if an intelligent liberal Zionist who was honest about Israeli crimes came to the comments section here he or she would be hounded for the liberal Zionism and would not feel welcome. (I have mixed feelings about this, since well-intentioned liberal Zionists will be part of the solution, or could be, if we don’t just head straight on to Algeria instead). Such a person might not stay very long.

      So anyway, instead of intelligent liberal Zionists, we get you. There are, as usual, a large number of Palestinian victims in this current onslaught and in normal circumstances Palestinians comprise all the victims and are mostly ignored. They get shot and not one word is said by soulless clowns like Hillary Clinton. I doubt it is an actual heartfelt position– what I think in her case drives her behavior is the quest for donations. She’d happily take sides in geekish arguments about the merits of Daenerys Targareyan as a future Queen of Westeros if that would bring in significant amounts of money. The reality, the merits of the argument, who suffers, who doesn’t–she doesn’t give a damn.

        Also, the majority of Jews will not help this cause unless they are cleansed of Zionism.

Save it. I don’t believe you anymore. The BDS movement has had a decade to take a stand against terrorist violence, and they haven’t done it, not once. BDS proponents enjoy this violence.

        You see, Hophmi, acts of terrorism against civilians is what all Zionist entity organs have as main purpose since around 1917.

        When the UN convention and the Nuremberg rules establish a right of occupied populations to resist the invader by all means judged adequate, it means just that, not what a Terrorist-Lover like Hophmi thinks of it.

        And still the Tsahal and police and settler terrorists have no right at all to be anywhere and no right to defend themselves. Heck, even according to the ridiculously supine, colonialist UN rules they have no right to even be anywhere outside the 11/1947 partition line. Even according to their main accomplice US they have no right to be outside the 1967 green line.
        As for within the lines admitted by the Zionist entity’s accomplices, the responsibility is with the government of the Zionist entity, go cry there.

      Big bucks donors are probably the biggest reason for Democratic subservience. With Republicans it’s big bucks plus Christian Zionist votes.

      But yeah, part of the Lobby’s power is its attraction for American racists. The Israeli history of stealing land from people and treating their victims as savages echoes our own–in both cases the crimes are dressed up in noble sounding rhetoric about civilization and so forth. There’s not much originality. Colonialism and conquest tends to look the same, at least in the past few hundred years.

      • kalithea
        October 14, 2015, 2:35 am

        I really don’t like it when the Occupation by Israel is referred to as Colonialism. Even if I’m totally against colonialism and what was done to the indigenous in the Americas, this is different. Referring to this as colonialism kind of mitigates the severity of the crime because it presents it as that necessary evil for a greater good which is kind of how Americans view Zionism or what they’ve been made to believe it is.

        I believe this is a crime that should have no redeeming justification. It’s like stating that Muslims are inferior, that they’re less intelligent and less civilized therefore they need to be colonized and converted when in fact, the real goal, the intention of Zionists is to squeeze them out, to ethnically cleanse them and of course wipe them out of existence if they persist. The Palestinians will go on being who they are forever despite the Zionist occupation imposed on them and hopefully resist and vanquish through justice.

        Although there is supremacy in colonialism, colonialism sought conversion and integration, but Zionism, like Nazism doesn’t seek conversion and especially not integration, it seeks expulsion and decimation of the inferior or the heathen. At least that’s how I see it and that’s how it’s playing out.

        So I prefer to refer to Zionism as exactly what it is, namely, Supremacy i.e. Jewish Supremacy.

They just coincidentally happen to be two-sides of the same coin. The “big bucks” that prostitute the American politicos to take a totally one-sided stance on international affairs are obviously different “big bucks” from those that fund a host of “think-tanks” and “research foundations” that mould American opinion, and different “big bucks” from those used so extensively in campaigning that the American media can be induced to self-censor, and different “big bucks” from those that are used so extensively to fund McCarthyite organisations that prescribe what is an acceptable expression of free speech within academia and on college campuses. Notwithstanding all these “big bucks” floating around the ether, the American John and Jane have courageously and independently reviewed all the evidence, pursued due diligence, and just happen to have aligned themselves alongside the “big bucks”?

      October 14, 2015, 4:35 am

      I’m hoping Max Blumenthal is around when they hold the equivalent of the Nuremberg trials to prosecute Zionist criminals at some future date for supremacist crimes against humanity.

      What’s being described in this interview is intent at genocide and genocidal acts. It’s exactly what I’ve been saying; that Zionism needs to expulse and/or decimate the other in order to survive.

      I just discovered something that I have in common with Max Blumenthal, we’re both born in December and have a laser-like connection with the truth.

      So I wrote here that Jews are the key to restoring freedom and rights to the Palestinians and if Jews with a conscience want to know exactly what they need to do to make that happen then they need look no further than Max Blumenthal as a guide. When you look up integrity in the dictionary it’s got his name in the usage of the word in a sentence.

      If there were thousands of him cloned it would put the Wiesenthal’s anti-Semitic black list out of business but alas, he’s the exception to the rule.

      May he live long and prosper, convert many Jews away from Zionism and testify at the war crimes tribunal that will put Zionism in the pages of historical infamy.

      And my guess is he’ll win the Pulitzer one of these days or the Peabody, he’s got journalistic guts! Heck just give him the Nobel Prize already; he’s leagues ahead of the game on Zionism and he deserves it more than Bush-lite Obama and Shimon uber-Zionist Peres FGS!

    The Hill: Carson holds double-digit lead on Clinton in new poll:

    Four Republican presidential candidates lead Hillary Clinton nationally in head-to-head match-ups, according to a new poll.

    The Fox News survey released on Tuesday shows Ben Carson running the strongest against Clinton, with the retired neurosurgeon taking 50 percent, compared to only 39 percent for the former secretary of State.

    Donald Trump leads Clinton by 45 percent to 40, Jeb Bush leads Clinton 44 to 40 and Carly Fiorina leads Clinton 42 to 39, the poll found.

    While it can be dangerous to read too much into any poll this early in the presidential contest, the Fox News survey wil give ammunition to those arguing that Vice President Biden would be a stronger Democratic candidate than Clinton.

    Biden leads all of those same Republican contenders in head-to-head match-ups. He’s up on Trump by 50 percent to 37, Bush by 46 to 41 percent and enjoys leads of 46 to 42 percent over both Carson and Fiorina.

    Kerry says the violence and incitement to violence in the region has to stop.”

    I guess we aren’t supposed to notice generations of Israeli violence and incitement. That doesn’t count.

    As for Mrs. Clinton, she knows better. Shortly after her husband was elected, she made some news with constructive comments about Palestinians. NYT Mag had her on the cover, with an article about the politics of virtue and the role of her Lib. Zionist guru Rabbi Lerner. Push back followed. Indeed, the article itself contained some hints. She wised up. She believes in raising money, getting elected. Ditto Obama. I suspect he would gladly help Palestinians if there were no cost or risk in doing so. I thought he might act more boldly as a lame duck, but I guess he is still concerned about other Democrats getting elected, and about donations to whatever his version of the “Clinton Initiative” will be.

      I can off some encouragement. I have deliberately been monitoring the New Zealand Media reporting on events in Israel and the Occupied Territories. It seems at least in New Zealand the commentary is balanced and tonight when it reported the Knesset decision to shut off Jerusalem to Palestinians it was stated that this would only inflame the situation and the reporter listed the number of Palestinian deaths as well as Israeli deaths. Palestinians are currently being killed at a rate of four Palestinians for every one Israeli. It was a nice feeling to know our media is fair.

    — The Clintons are motivated by money and power and will be sympathetic to the greater sources of those.

    — Ramming a rabbi at a stop sign and then finishing him off with a hatchet will never be seen as the actions of a David against Goliath, whatever injustice made that killer snap. Its understandable that Americans will see it that way and random brutal violence helps Israel at home and abroad, and weakens non-violent, rights based approaches such as BDS.

    –The response of Israel’s supporters on for example Facebook is remarkable for its genuine and affected cluelessness. Palestinian terrorists killing Jews simple for being Jewish, as if there is no occupation, as if there is no wider context for violence, as if there is no sense (of course there is no perceived right) of retaliation for Israeli’s killing of them and theirs.

    Lastly, In the opening scene of the film Kagemusha, the bound thief who would later become the “shadow warrior” to the warring statesman Takeda Shingen, rolls over in laughter even though he might be headed to torture and the gallows. He scoffs at his captors, lord Shingen and his brother. They dare call -him- a thief for his individual crimes? The warlords meanwhile have stolen whole domains with vast murder and plunder, in an attempt to become the most powerful, and the most honoured.

    It is human nature beyond I/P to grant legitimacy to power. Israel can take an entire territory and fight with planes and missiles (with the occasional “collateral” damage). Yet, a palestinian with a knife or a rock will be a terrorist.

    This is quite unfair and in a saner world. Murder would be murder and theft would be theft. whichever the actor, whatever the scale, in fact the larger the scale the worse the crime. But we are in this world and Israel gains favour here in ways that are outside of the kind of typical explanation. This is in part about human optics, not the specifics of Jews and American empire.

      All true, I think.

And “Guernica” is a famous painting. But some Westerners have a harder time seeing the immorality of our bombs or Israel’s bombs.

        The USSR did not invade Afghanistan, nor was the USSR in beligerent occupation of the country for one moment. Its presence in Afghanistan was on the same basis as it is in Syria, invitation by the government to help defend the state from a foreign supported insurgency.

        I dont know if that makes any difference the USA and her citizens notoriously have no respect for international legal niceties.

        Back in those days we were on the American ambassadors visitation list, we would see him at our institution in London, once or twice every year, as many of the Shuyukh were very well connected, especially our Director. I recall them complaining bitterly that America insisted on arming regional and ethnic militias without pushing very hard for the formation of a national movement, who would segue straight from insurrection to civil war, as they did. Wasnt it Hekmatyar and Masood who destroyed Kabul?

A British Tory will defend self-determination in Europe and oppose it in India with no feeling of inconsistency. Actions are held to be good or bad, not on their own merits, but according to who does them, and there is almost no kind of outrage — torture, the use of hostages, forced labour, mass deportations, imprisonment without trial, forgery, assassination, the bombing of civilians — which does not change its moral colour when it is committed by ‘our’ side”.

        the Soviet aerial campaign in Afghanistan and in the present

        So I understood in the presentas being the Soviet aerial campaign today, even if Russia isn’t Soviet and therefore I admit I might have misinterpreted your comment…or did I?

        Regardless, this being said, I still think you’re being naïve because you seem to be looking at this present-day situation through the prism of perfection and in today’s world the white hats are mostly restricted to members of powerless mass.

        This is a world where all the powers are wearing black hats today even the ones who pretend to own the moral high ground. By the way, I see the murderousness in U.S. bombing in Iraq and Afghanistan as well and in the drone campaigns in Pakistan, Yemen and other places.

        Of course I’m against all forms of violence but here we have Palestinians abandoned to their misery faced with the cyclical monstrous violence of the Israeli military machine. So what would you do in their case; lie down and die or is there no such thing as self-defence? I know what you’re thinking: attacking civilians isn’t self-defence, but look at the weapons those Zionist soldiers are carrying; and do Zionists discriminate between civilians and resistance militia? Israel set the playing field and the rules of engagement! It’s seem to me that the party who pushes another party to resort to violence to defend himself and to force justice through violence is of much greater fault and thoroughly evil.

        Similarly, when certain powers use extraordinary violent means to exert influence and power around the world as the U.S. does, a balance is required to CHECK and deter that kind of influence and power gained by violence and force, even though the U.S. believes it owns the moral high ground.

        Without balance of power there is no discussion and no one will put aside their weapons to sit and talk about a better world. The U.S. is far from a moral authority and its quest for power through force is disgusting and out of control. Also, I firmly believe that in trying to oust Assad because he doesn’t fit with U.S. interests and the hegemony equation in the region; the U.S. ushered in a group of bad actors called ISIS who are so much worse than Assad, because what U.S. leaders fail to understand is that interfering and upsetting balance of power has serious blowback and dire consequences.

        So I stand by my comment even if you didn’t mention Putin’s aerial bombing in Syria or did you? I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt but my point stands: balance of power is a GOOD thing and like it or not Assad is part of that balance equation for the time being, as is Iran, and Hezbollah and Russia and others who are tacitly supporting this coalition and personally I don’t want anyone to have all the power; I just want balance of power restored by Putin or Iran or China or whomever can restore it so everyone treads carefully into the future respecting each others power until we evolve to a higher consciousness of being and your perfect world where no violence exists.

I don’t know what the rest of us would do born into oppression, witnessing loved ones and fellow Palestinians killed year in and year out by the barbaric occupier and having one’s holy sites restricted and suffering a multitude of indignities. Is it easy to lose control in such a situation, ESPECIALLY, when you sucked up your rage against so much injustice for so many years and tried peaceful means to be heard to get justice.

      True, but I agree with Donald: you overstate the importance of that apolitical, transhistoircal element of “human nature”.

      “The Palestinian with a knife or a rock” could just as well be seen as a brave “freedom fighter”, not a “terrorist”; Israeli onslaughts with planes and missiles could be seen as “intolerable aggression by a rogue state”, not “legitimate self-defense” –it all depends on the propaganda fed to the public. (Of course, the power of propaganda to defy reality is not unlimited.)

      State actions are easily demonized; any natural tendency to “grant legitimacy to power”, if one exists, can be easily overridden.

      Needless to say, the power of states/dominant elites to control popular opinion is in no way limited to “Jews and American empire.”

Humans across culture have given respect to power and condemned individuals engaged in much smaller acts of violence. This works very well for describing the highly lopsided I/P issues where everything Palestinians do is “terror.”

        Mooser is a guy imo with too much time on his hands who thinks misreading what I write is fun, funny and in some way helps Palestinians.

        Not here or anywhere do I, as he accuses, grant legitimacy to power, in fact I am doing the exact opposite as others could recognise. To quote you: “power is never legitimate prima facie to me”.

        Sorry, Tokyo, I’m not smart and all I can do is linear, Aristotelian logic. I can’t try to follow convoluted thinking and complicated expression. It’s not by quoting one characteristic that’s far from being a universal that you’ll sell me “human nature”.

    I’m waiting to see what super progressive Bernie has to say about the Palestinians tonight. Probably not much. He’s such a fraud.

      Sanders basically expresses a neutral position, concern for both “sides”, two-state solution, which would be a big improvement over current policy.

    Omg! Thank you for this article. I’m watching the debate right now and let me tell you: the Democratic Party is in serious, serious trouble. The only candidate on that stage who has a foreign policy that makes a smidgen of sense, who has a Jimmy Carter air about his foreign policy is Lincoln Chafeeee; and he just got trounced by Zionist Hillary a few minutes ago! He has no edge, none of Carter’s charisma, no assertive speaking voice and disappears into the debate background. He will never win the nomination and even if he did with that kind of meek delivery he would get annihilated by the likes of Trump in an election campaign.

    The audience at that debate is hard core neolib. The Democratic candidates are a worthless and sorry lot calling themselves liberal and progressive. There is absolutely no hope for Americans whatsoever and much less for Palestinians! Bernie Sanders, is a hopeless Zionist. O’Malley’s a hawk like Hillary, and Webb should move back to the Republican Party.

    Unless a THIRD party appears on the scene for the election campaign, the world is moving backwards into another dark age if we ever left the one started by the Bush Administration. Hillary is much, much worse than Bill. Well just look at what a lousy SoS she was! She keeps repeating Iran sanctions over and over and over again like McCain with his bomb Iran!

    So get ready folks, because as I wrote earlier in another blog page here: I fear Trump is going to run away with the Republican nomination and I think he might just eye Cruz for a running mate since he’s reluctant to criticize him even when the press try to bait him to take a jab at Cruz. And these two will turn Washington into Crazy town. I’m very worried and disgusted with American politics and politicians.

    FGS! There are over 300 million Americans and not one intelligent anti-Zionist politician to challenge the status quo?

    It’s going to take a revolution minus Bernie Sanders’ Zionism.

    Well, it’s stunning. Netanyahu has aligned Israel with Speaker Boehner, Rush Limbaugh, and all things Right wing-nut, while declaring war on Liberalism and Academia, Hillary practices Hasbara as faithfully as Marco Rubio is trying to, and Donald Trump nails it all with a tweet: Rubio will be Adelson’s perfect lapdog. Who’d a thunk it!

    It’s critical that we take a hard look at the larger picture. If the following piece doesn’t resonate with you, there are many, many others out there. The beauty of this one is that it’s succinct.

      Pixel: thanks for the link. It is entirely plausible that Israel would follow such a policy. It is chilling to think that my own government would act in this way for Israel’s benefit, yet that too is plausible, because we know that there are many influential people in this country who advocate and adopt Israel’s policy.

      Your “everything is connected” comment reminds me of another neocon success: http://www.intrepidreport.com/archives/4837

    One should ask for something better from an American politician, other than cynicism, hypocrisy, obedience to their American Jewish puppet masters and subservience to the Israeli murderers.

    This woman, in particular, is an absurd dissonance on the political scene. She is shallow like a dead oyster shell and platitudinous like vacuum cleaner salesman. Together with the other Democrat stooges they form a pathetic flock of inept, ridiculous morons. Added to the bunch of bullish, idiotic, uneducated, Zionist Republican rednecks, together they form a discouraging and absolutely lamentable spectrum of wannabe presidents.

    Are these the whole future of America? Bleak, horrendous future.

      It is simply selective compassion. At least she could have been a bit more neutral. What the heck does she care for the Palestinians who have no clout in this nation, nor have strong lobbies that would help her win the Presidency? There is no condemnation at all for the way the zionists are killing unarmed kids. The networks keep showing a young man being shot and killed from the back as he runs away from the IDF thugs carrying a knife. These zionists are experts at shooting with snipers from afar or shooting at the back.

      I am sure the zionists must have been disappointed that the Dems did not proclaim their love and devotion to Israel last night, like the shameless Republicans did. Jim Webb did mention the country once, but that was it. Obama did not mention Israel during his speech at the UN and now the Democrats ignored it too. If only this was a good sign!

    I am new to this site, and with a couple of exceptions, the posts have a numbing uniformity. There is no actual discussion. People are simply venting, generally using a uniform jargon regarding “zio-supremacy” and “Zionists”, and, for Hillary, “Ziogranny”, which really is surreal. All of it together is unintentionally comical. What is accomplished if there is no attempt to engage sincerely with a differing point of view?

      1. Poke around this site and you’ll see lots of other people using terms like “anti-Semite”, “Jew-hater” and “Pallywag brigade”.

      2. How should one “engage sincerely” with people who:
      – support Jewish supremacism in/and a supremacist “Jewish State” in as much as possible of Palestine;
      – advocate, support, justify and/or excuse Israel’s past and on-going (war) crimes; and
      – oppose justice, accountability, equality and respect for human rights and international law?

      Lead the way, busterbobby.

      You want surreal? Then you overlooked the hasbarats who constantly justify occupation and oppression.
      You are seeking “sincere and differing” discussion with those folks?

      “There is no actual discussion”

      OK, let’s have some

      “What is accomplished if there is no attempt to engage sincerely with a differing point of view?”

      What can possibly be achieved if people refuse to accept the facts? Here’s some.

      Israel is the “Occupying Power” over territory the Israeli Government itself claimed were “outside the State of Israel” … “in Palestine”

      An Occupying Power has a sacred trust to protect the occupied, their property and their territory http://www.un.org/en/documents/charter/chapter11.shtml

      UNSC resolutions condemning Israel’s illegal actions tell us Israel has failed to live up to its legal obligations http://domino.un.org/UNISPAL.NSF/b86613e7d92097880525672e007227a7/6de6da8a650b4c3b852560df00663826?OpenDocument and failed to take note of the hundreds of reminders of the law issued by the UNSC

      UNSC resolutions are not biased against Israel. The UNSC has afforded Israel hundreds of opportunities to comply with the law, far more opportunities than any other country on the planet. If you do not live up to your contract with the power company and they send you reminders are they biased?

      There are no UNSC/UN/UNGA resolutions against Israel for any of its actions within its own self proclaimed territory http://www.trumanlibrary.org/whistlestop/study_collections/israel/large/documents/newPDF/49.pdf
