  • Meet Haggai Segal, Israel’s terrorist journalist
    • The problem here is that the pro-Israel people are very plugged into the MSM, so their version of events always takes precedent. Mr. Segal is a typical example. His terror network is always referred to as the "Jewish underground," not the "Jewish Terror Network." Why? Because that is what the Israeli media called them and it got repeated by their supporters abroad till everyone was calling them that. Israeli government terminology always takes precedent as "fact." Also embarrassing or bad behavior by Israeli Jews is downplayed as an "aberration" and is rarely repeated. Think about how many times you have heard about the "underground" in the media, now think about how many times you heard about Palestinians "dancing on the rooftops," or "passing out candy" after a terror attack. It doesn't matter that those things never happened because people like the Dersh make sure to spread them far and wide. And since they get to be on TV most of the time the truth gets buried. That's why we need to keep plugging away at them.

  • NY's Public Theater cancels Palestinian production, 'The Siege,' it agreed to stage in May
  • 'Let the one-state era begin'-- Tom Friedman explains there will never be a Palestinian state
    • "Only question now is what’s the path to 1S1P1V going to look like??"

      Well, if Herzog and his crew have anything to say it will simply be more of the same. They will attempt to ignore the situation for as long as possible. They will bank on the hope that things will remain unchanging for the foreseeable future. Anyone who has followed Middles Eastern politics know that that is NOT how things turn out.

    • "...the poor dears lost faith because of Hamas violence."

      Isn't it interesting that the mighty warriors of Israel can be reduced to hysterics by a bunch of kids with knives?

    • Folks, I think our support of Netanyahu in the last election is starting to bear fruit. We all knew that with him at the helm Israel would go off the rails, to mix a metaphor. And he has not disappointed! It's full speed ahead to full blown fascism and they're not even trying to make it look good. The latest comical outrage was a few days ago when Livni called in some journalists to bring in their homework and show how they were "not" on the side of the "terrorists" with their reporting. This incitement against the Only Democracy in the Middle East must end! And we'll use all the undemocratic weapons in our arsenal to stop it.

      This is definitely a time to let it crash and burn. That's the only hope.

  • Cartoon: Netanyahu plans fortress Israel to protect against 'wild beasts'
    • Wasn't the idea behind Zionism to free the Jewish people? It looks more like Israel is reverting to the ghetto again.

    • "Probably the only truthful claim the Israelis made regarding the Iran/US nuclear deal was that Iran will be able to furnish Hezbollah with even more devastating weapons"

      This will no doubt cause the Israelis to think twice about invading. They don't have the stomach for real fighting anymore.

    • Does that number include fireworks?

  • Scenes from a Meltdown: Watching Clinton answer questions about Black Lives Matter and Muslim Americans in New Hampshire
    • I dislike Hillary Clinton because she is a phony. Wasn't she against gay marriage, well now she's for it after all the hard work other people did. Every time she answers a question you can almost hear the wheels turning ("Now, what did we find out about this in the last focus group?") Also I don't like the idea that the Democratic machine expects me to support her because that's how THEY want it.

      And the Democratic shills were out in force this morning. Talking about Clinton unmitigated defeat in NH the Democratic shill on TV said that this was not a defeat but an "opportunity" for her to retool her message. The way he made it sound was like she "planned" on losing as a tactic. They really think we're all idiots.

      I have deep seated issues with Sanders but to see how he's messing up HRC's coronation warms my heart.

  • In yet another effort to revive dream of Jewish sovereignty, 'NYT' cites Thai restaurants in Tel Aviv
    • "Zionism was never the gentlest of ideologies. The return of the Jewish people to their biblical homeland and the resumption of Jewish sovereignty there have always carried within them the displacement of those already living on the land."

      It's called Colonialism.

      "The largely secular founders of Israel, the generation of David Ben-Gurion, had a dual vision of Israel as both “a light among nations” and a state like others, part of the international community of nations, outward looking and socially just. " And they would around to all that social justice as soon as they finished raping, looting and pillaging the natives. Omelets and eggs.

  • Three Joint List MKs suspended from Knesset over visit to Palestinian attacker's homes
    • "Could you imagine a Congressman visiting the home of the Santa Barbara shooters to discuss funeral arrangements?"

      We don't withhold bodies! And if we do it is wrong wrong wrong!

      These MK's are trying to get DEAD PEOPLE released from custody, why do you have a problem with that?

  • 'Barbarism by an educated and cultured people' -- Dawayima massacre was worse than Deir Yassin
    • Yossi Gurvitz wrote a blog post a few years back in which he said that there were very few memoirs written by '48 war veterans. He suggested that the reason was that many of them could not admit to themselves, much less the Jewish community, what they had done. So they kept silent and thereby left the field free for Leon Uris and his ilk to come along and enshrine Zionist mythology as "History." They had a willing accomplice in successive Israeli governments who made sure to indoctrinate their (Jewish) citizens in the mythology and deny their responsibility in the ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

      "..the commanders who are cultured and polite, considered good guys in society, have become vile murderers, and this occurs not in the storm of battle and heated response, but rather from a system of expulsion and destruction." Not for the last time would "cultured and educated" men be responsible for horrible atrocities. There were plenty of them running around German in the last century.

      By the by is Benny Morris still on the outs with the rest of the Zionist community?

  • Tel Aviv housecleaning service advertises higher rates for European help than Africans
    • What did I tell y'all? Our Hasbarists are as predictable as rain at a picnic.

      Also think about our Herchel lecturing the PA on corruption. He seems to have forgotten that an ex-president is serving time for rape and an ex prime minister is about to serve time for corruption. Pot let me introduce you to the kettle.

    • "49 NIS – for a foreigner of African descent 52 NIS – for a foreigner of eastern European descent 69 NIS – for a resident (Israeli ID holder) of eastern European descent."

      Exactly where would a Jewish Ethiopian women fit into that hierarchy? Does her Jewishness trump her Blackness or vice versa?

      It's all about exploiting the most vulnerable people in the country who will not have any recourse if they are abused, cheated or raped.

      Expect plenty of whatabouty from the Hasbarists should they weigh in ("You should see what they do to black folk in the Gulf States!")

  • Double standard seen as Israel sentences minors involved in Abu Khdeir murder to prison but no punitive measures
    • So, after a YEAR AND A HALF they finally got a sentence for only two of them because the other guy has to get yet another psych evaluation. It's still not over. These are stiff sentences but it remains to be seen whether they will stand.

      So far as I am aware no one in their respective communities turned them in. The cops had to come and get them. I mention this because Palestinians are routinely condemned for not turning in their people when they commit violent acts. Well, I did not see anyone from that settlement where the Duma killers lived turning them in either. Remember, this is the justification for collective punishment which is NEVER applied to Jews because, well, it's a apartheid regime.

  • Pro-Israel group wants to send army colonel to your campus to explain battle for west's 'way of life'
    • I've said it before and I'll say it again, he's a disgrace to the name Grover.

    • "Wow, I would never want my children in any army that was hesitant to get them killed. Those Israelis sure are idiots."

      If you insist on imposing your rule on millions of people who do not want it then you better be prepared to pay in lives.

      Otherwise get the hell out of the West Bank and Gaza.

      You want a nice cheap occupation, not going to happen.

    • Now that I think about it "front outpost" is redundant. But you either say that or "colonial outpost" and that's just not PC.

    • This article is just crammed with juicy tidbits!

      "It’s about a war that we are fighting as the front outpost of the west. It’s a war of a way of life.."..and it's call Colonialism, AKA the White Man's Burden.

      I think they should move that Cecil Rhodes statue to Israel, he'd be more at home there.

    • "Please be assured that due to the fact that Dan Goldfus will be on uniform... He is coming purely from an educational perspective, not as part of a PR exercise"


      Yes, colonel, please tell us all about the glorious campaign of 2006! Exactly how many tanks did you lose? And don't leave out the Great Patriotic War of 2014! Please explain in detail why with all your fighter planes, and tanks and missiles and drones and nukes you were unable to retake Gaza like you said you were going to do.

      I'll wait.

  • Israeli military reportedly seeks to censor private Facebook pages commenting on national security
    • I've been to Friends of George several times and though I have to use Google translate the post are always interesting.

      Recently the great human rights fraud, Natan Sharansky, opined on the Breaking the Silence brouhaha. Basically he said that since Israel is a "democracy" there is no need for such human rights groups. But this was not the most ludicrous thing he said. He faulted BTS for being "unelected" and thereby not accountable to anyone for their actions. But I have a feeling he would not be the least bit annoyed by the "unelected" military people trying to control dissent.

  • Saudi court overturns death sentence for Ashraf Fayadh; new sentence is 8 years and 800 lashes
  • Israeli designer eroticizes the Palestinian keffiyeh
    • "Eroticizing the conflict – could be a good idea, worth a try…"

      No, let's not. Otherwise we'll get more of those disgusting t-shirts some of the IDF units put out after Cast Lead glorifying the rape and murder of Palestinian women.

    • Last year, or it might have been the year before, a group of Israeli Jews tried to get their status changed from "Jew" to Israeli. And the High court said they couldn't do that because there was no such thing as an Israeli. I think they said something like there was not enough time for a distinctive "Israeli" identity to develop. Right, after over 60 years!

      What would a traditional "Israeli" folk costume look like?

    • I guess Jon66 thinks that this store absolutely justifies the brutality against ALL the people of Gaza. It makes the death of those kids on the beach so easier to accept.

  • The Israeli government is as responsible for Duma murders as those who threw the firebomb
  • American Jewish Committee agent tries to dig up anti-Semitic dirt in a German refugee housing block
    • Wow, don't you just love the haunted look on his face in that second picture? I wonder how long it took him to get just the right expression.

      This is vile. These people have been driven from their homes by the U.S. and its allies (including Israel) proxy wars in Syria and does this guy feel any sympathy? Does he use this opportunity to find out what happened to them? Does he try to relate to them as a fellow human being? No, his whole mission is to find out how much they "hate" him so he can validate his own dismissal of their pain. Horrible and pathological on so many levels.

  • Israeli group Ad Kan continues attacks on anti-occupation activists with 'expose' of Anarchists Against the Wall
    • Im Tirzu's "blacklist" does not go far enough. What they should do is get together a traveling show of "Degenerate Israeli Art." I understand that the show the Germans put on back in the thirties did boffo box office.

    • "...the State of Israel is losing its freedom of action in its efforts to protect its citizens and maintain its character.."

      Mull that statement over, Israelis not losing "freedom" but "freedom of action."

      Translation: how come we can't get away with this anymore?

      “At the end of the day, the activities of AATW hurts first and foremost the Palestinians. When the activists return to the[ir] comfortable and quiet homes, the IDF continues its presence in the villages as a result of the violence and the friction only enflames hatred between the sides,”

      It's the poor darkies that suffer when these white northerners come down south, starting mess, and leave the poor plantation owners picking up the pieces!

      White (Jewish) privilege strikes again.

  • 'Maximum Jews, minimum Palestinians' -- Yair Lapid is the pretty face of ultranationalism
    • "Just make sure you don’t walk around with a screwdriver, Lapid might kill you."

      Oh, please, he wouldn't dirty his lily white hands with such work. He'd get some poor security guard on minimum wage to do the deed.

      By the by, isn't he the son of "Tommy Gun" Lapid? Yesh Atid sounds like a warmed over version of his dad's old party.

  • Jewish organizations look to co-opt 'intersectionality' in the fight against BDS
    • When you put the Dersh on your banner you must know the battle it already lost.

      "Describing the initiative to the Canadian Jewish News, she said, “there are faculty who identify people like us as Zionists and say we are therefore not credible in the anti-oppression world so this is what we are doing to try to counter that.”

      And how exactly will you do that? You're only hope is to deluge the opposition in whatabouty and lies and it's not going to work. The people involved in BDS are there because they have educated themselves about the situation in Israel/Palestine. They are not going to be swayed by pretty pictures of Lucy Aharish or a Gay pride parade.

  • Among the settlers
    • This statement really stood out for me.

      "I am a leftist, but the two state solution is problematic,” says a burly thoughtful kibbutznik. “They won’t have an airport– they can’t, it won’t happen. They won’t have a seaport, except through Israeli control.”

      This is the bleak inhumane legacy of Zionism. They cannot even pretend that everyone will benefit. It's been sometime since I read Herzl "The Jewish State" but I cannot recall that he mentions the treatment of non Jews anywhere in it. At least Herzl as a 19th century white European man was merely repeating the racism he grew up with. Current Zionists will not be allowed to have that as an excuse.

  • The world the settlers made
    • "...settlers are essentially good people, with good intentions, and rational thinkers"


    • Two things that leaped out at me.

      1. They are truly obsessed with how much the world supposedly hates them and they revel in it.

      2. They are in deep denial about the cruelties their community perpetrates against the Palestinians. Either the Palestinians are "framing" them or self-hating Jews are in league with the enemies of Israel.

      A community this delusional can ONLY survive by handouts.

  • Netanyahu taps Internet freedom activist known for pranking Iranian officials as new spokesperson
    • I found this about him on the Gatestone website:

      David Keyes
      Director, and Coordinator of Democracy Programs at the Adelson Institute for Strategic Studies

      David Keyes is the Director of and Coordinator for Democracy Programs at the Adelson Institute for Strategic Studies. Under his mentor Natan Sharansky, Keyes became a founding member of He assisted a former UN ambassador and has written for leading publications including The New Republic, National Review, Commentary and The Jerusalem Post. Keyes graduated with honors from UCLA in Middle Eastern Studies and pursued a Masters in Diplomacy at Tel Aviv University. He served in the Strategic Division of the Israeli army and speaks Arabic, Hebrew and English.

      Yep, he's quite a record with "human rights," doesn't he?

      If you haven't been to the Gatestone Institute's website here's just a sample of the kinds of stories they cover.

      Ye shall know them by the company they keep.

  • Israeli mayors initiate boycott of Sweden over foreign minister's criticism
  • 'This is a totally political arrest, they will not thwart human rights!' Guy Butavia tells the courthouse
    • "nawi bragged about much more then one arab turned over to pa tortured then killed"

      There is no evidence that Nawi turned anyone over to the PA to be tortured and killed. Ever. But if you've got those tapes by all means share them. Otherwise I find your concern for those "tortured and killed" Palestinians dubious.

    • Stuff happens.

      Silverstein says that the settlers and their police are "shopping" Nawajah around the local courts to see if they can get a sympathetic ear. They had no success in Israel which is why they came back to the West Bank.

      But remember, it's not apartheid!

    • DB's comment is like that Andrew Sullivan article he wrote after the Gaza war. In it he expressed concern over the "massacres" Hamas was likely to commit against Israel if the embargo ended. For him the fictional killings of Israelis (Jews only) was worse than the actual massacres of real Palestinians.

    • The plot was hatched by settlers who are being aided by the West bank "police," apparently the Shin Bet wants nothing to do with it. That should tell you something right there. Also whatever Nawi said NO ONE was turned over to the Palestinian authorities much less killed.

      But it is nice to see your concern for a Palestinian, albeit a fictitious one.

    • Don't you just love the way the big, beefy guy puts his arm in the way of the camera? Pathetic.

      I've been retraining myself from saying this because I wasn't sure if the time was right, but now I think it is. It's "crunch time" people. Time for the activists to pick a side and start resisting.

  • Adelson newspaper suggests Swedish foreign minister deserves assassination for questioning Israeli policy
    • From everything I have read the count was one of the "good guys."

      One of his assassins, Shamir, went on to become Prime Minister. That is how Israel rewards its terrorists.

  • Israel arrests human rights campaigner Ezra Nawi and puts gag order on case as part of growing 'witch hunt' against activists
    • Do they really expect us to believe that the Israeli police are concerned about the safety of a Palestinian man, albeit a fictitious one? As the Brits would say pull the other one.

      I was on 972mag this morning and it seems the Israelis were arrested for going to the Palestinian authorities rather than the Israeli ones. I guess the only Jews allowed to have contact with Palestinians are the price tag gangs.

  • 'NYT's next Jerusalem chief routinely offers Israel as a model for American conduct
    • "...if this guy is Jodi Rudoren’s replacement in Jerusalem then I have a bad feeling about how the coverage is likely to be."

      Fearless prediction: it will continue to be horrible in that totally clueless way the Times specializes in. Just remember, only Jewish lives matter.

  • Groundbreaking Human Rights Watch report shows how settlement businesses contribute to Israeli occupation
    • Baader-Meinhof? The Red Army? And didn't Israel start those wars in Lebanon?

      His list is hardly an example of fortitude.

  • Extremists vandalize Jerusalem church with Hebrew threats: 'Death to heathen Christians'
    • I greatly appreciate that comment from you, Schmuel. It shows that these are not garden variety thugs.

  • Are Palestinian citizens of Israel banned from New York Times headlines?
    • There are some tough neighborhoods in Detroit that are far from "queer" friendly. No gay bars or pride parades either. According to Bill Maher that makes them suitable for bombing.

  • Facebook censors cartoon critical of Israel
    • Mayhem sez:
      “...experiment” conducted by an Israeli non-profit organization has proven that when it comes to incitement, Facebook falls squarely into the anti-Israel camp."

      Yep, an experiment conducted by a Zionist organization which offers a "Biblical perspective" on the occupation found Facebook too pro-Arab. Go figure.

  • My one word interrogation at Ben Gurion airport
    • Something that was sort of buried in the Aegean Airlines incident was that even after the Palestinians were kicked off the protesters were still demanding that the cabin be checked for well explosives I guess. At that point the crew put their foot down and said no. And if anyone did not like it they could get off the plane with NO compensation. It was quiet after that. That was how it should have been handled in the first place.

      Gee, in a choice between the chance of getting blown out of the sky or losing money they decided on the latter.

    • Yep, that's some warm and fuzzy democracy there!
