  • Tony Blair's Middle East speech: dangerous and anti-Muslim
    • Blair is a has been US poodle doggie and now shills for whoever or whatever will pay him and let him pretend he matters.
      Who actually even listens to him?
      He's a total joke as far as I can see and is only news worthy when he makes ridiculous speeches like this.
      Which I am pretty sure is why he does it.
      One of those elites who fell from elitedom.
      The Saudis should buy themselves a current elite not a has been elite.

  • Israel stops US-led peace talks citing Palestinian unity (Updated)
    • Back to the future. Nothing's changed.
      We didnt 'pacify' Nazism for 40 years.
      Send the Marines.

      "Jesus Christ couldn't please them when he was here on earth, so how can anyone expect that I would have any luck?" ....Harry Truman

  • 'Al Jazeera' examines Jewish constellation of lobby elites, and marginalized 'universalists'
    • David Doppler says:

      ''Fuck elitism'>>>>

      Ditto. Look at what the elites are today and you can see that ..'' that the most talented and virtuous would naturally rise''.....isnt the case any longer.
      Crass money buys crass elitism today and today's elite in most spheres are crass.
      We could call the 20th century the 'Century of the Locust.'
      Remains to be seen what we will call the 21th century.

    • Oh, I would say "fifth column" definitely describes the zionist in the US.

      'fifth column'
      Article Free Pass
      Written by The Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica

      ''fifth column, clandestine group or faction of subversive agents who attempt to undermine a nation’s solidarity by any means at their disposal. The term is credited to Emilio Mola Vidal, a Nationalist general during the Spanish Civil War (1936–39). As four of his army columns moved on Madrid, the general referred to his militant supporters within the capital as his “fifth column,” intent on undermining the loyalist government from within.

      A cardinal technique of the fifth column is the infiltration of sympathizers into the entire fabric of the nation and, particularly, into positions of policy decision and national defense.''

  • Israeli settlers release wild boars on Palestinian farmland to destroy crops
    • ''Israeli settlers release wild pigs on Palestinian farms''

      Somehow this is the perfect image of zionism and what zionist are.
      Putting pigs on land absolutely destroys all vegetation, pigs are used to thin out forest before it is converted to farm land because they root up and eat sprouts so not even seeds are left to ever sprout again.
      This is what zionism is, no respect for man or nature, pure evil destruction, a plague,all consuming senseless greed and envy of all others.

  • Snowden revealed a world of conspiracies I once would have scoffed at-- Bryan Burrough
    • 'Burrough’s admission that Snowden has changed the way he understands government: he used to reflexively dismiss conspiracy theories, but now that Snowden pulled back the curtain, he understands that is a naive stance'''>>>

      Has always puzzled me why some at least half way intelligent people deny the existence of conspiracies. The world is full of conspiracies, always has been.
      Where the deriding of conspiracies comes from is the idiots who try to make all the various conspiracies percolating in the world at any given time into Only One Giant Conspiracy with only one reason for conspiring.

    • ’ Envy causes us to recoil at another’s good qualities because it reveals our own lack of worth.'.........[DeYoung, Glittering Vices, 43]

      Gross has just enough self awareness I think to see the difference between someone like herself and her zionist brothers that she puts on a public pedestal and someone who has real selfless ethics.
      I've met a few people like this in my lifetime that snipe at people others might admire because deep down inside they know that person is fundamentally their better.

    • '“Every person remembers some moment in their life where they witness some injustice, big or small, and looked away because the consequences of intervening seemed too intimidating. But there’s a limit to the amount of incivility and inequality and inhumanity that each individual can tolerate. I crossed that line and am no longer alone.”' ..Snowden

      Isnt that why we objectors are all here on I/P and USA-Isr?
      I think so.

  • John Judis's Truman book is a landmark in anti-Zionism
    • 'Truman like everyone one else talked about “the Jews” and meant the Zionists in this country and abroad who were operating the Jewish Agency for Palestine and their constituents. If you try to discuss historical events and especially the contents of the official verbatim records, you’ll end up doing the same thing too.'' ...Hostage

      Yes. My take on the 'talk about Jews' during that period was that many of those using the term , 'the Jews', were actually referring to 'the Zionist Jews'. I cant remember seeing the description 'Zionist' used by the objectors to the Israel scheme back then.
      I dont think the term zionist was in use then.....just like you never hear zionism or zionist used now in the public sphere or msm for I-Firstdom.

    • This why the criticism of DBSers against Israel is so hypocritical. There was a wide ranging campaign among the zionist to boycott Germany.

      link to jta.org

      Plan to Coordinate Boycott on Germany
      September 24, 1933
      Plans for coordinating the boycott on German products will be formulated at a meeting of the national executive committee of the American Jewish Congress, to be held at 2 P.M. Sunday, at the Pennsylvania Hotel. Dr. Stephen S. Wise, honorary president of the Congress, will be the principal speaker. Dr. Joseph Tenenbaum, chairman of the committee, will preside.

      A mass meeting will be called on Tuesday evening by the Williams-bridge committee of the Congress, at P. S. 96, Olinville and Waring Avenues. Dr. Albert Brandt, German refugee, is scheduled to deliver an address. Z. Tygel, Director of the Federation of Polish Jews of America, will discuss possible American intervention in Germany in the interest of persecuted Jews.''

    • RoHa says:

      'But it was not the slaughter of foreign Jews that made Truman think of American Jews as selfish. He had that idea before the slaughter started,' >>>>

      Did Truman have that opinion before he became President and got strong armed by the zionist?
      If he did I'm not aware of it.
      And it would seem very odd for him to have had a Jew as a business partner and a close friend if that was his opinion.

    • Rational Zionist says:

      'WWIII? Will never happen. Are you (I mean you) willing to fight for the “palestians”? It means pick up arms, not just writing pearly words on this website? I didn’t think so.'......>>>>

      Hey RZ I'll take you up on that. Seriously.
      What would be great is if Israel and the Zionist would agree to pit their best Zio man or men against my pick of best US man or men in a winner takes all contest ----and whoever wins gets to settle the Palestine conflict.
      I would take that challenge any day.
      I am drooling just thinking about it.

      {{''Truman’s prejudice against Jews as selfish was obviously exacerbated by the pressure of the lobby. Still, it was prejudice: it was surely unfair to call a group selfish who had just seen 2/3 of its European population annihilated.''}}

      At some point Phil we have to suspend our sense of disbelief and anachronistic appeals to the Holocaust and accept the fact that the Zionist agenda in Palestine was based upon unabashed selfishness and militarism from day one.
      >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      Totally. The holocaust wasnt the beginning of Zionism, it only enabled it.
      And Zionism was never harmless to others, Herzl wrote about the necessity of having to 'move the natives around within', if not out, and even what kind of work the natives could be put to for zionist needs.

    • More and more books out there now. Allison Weir's 'Against Our Better Judgement' is excellent also, covers Truman and more.

      Unfortunately I dont see any of them or authors efforts impacting the politicans, politics or policy.
      The only problem with doing grassroots educating/exposing upward is it is going to take a long time to effect Washington.
      I dont now if the Palestine have that much time left.

  • How many 'Palestinian Arabs' want to kill 'all Jews?'
    • Correct me if I am wrong but dont papers and editors usually have some standards they apply to what letters are publish worthy?
      I would say Paul liked it or agreed with it and so published it, period.
      Because its hard to believe that that was only letter submitted or all of those submitted said all Palestines want to kill all Jews.
      If they had published a letter saying All Jews wanted to kill all Palestines there would be screamings, accusations, lawsuits claiming ...BLOOD LIBEL! , BLOOD LIBEL!
      This is what it is on Pauls part and thats all there is to it.

  • Obama and Kerry are spurred by 'vainglory' in pursuing talks -- Finkelstein
    • JeffB says..
      “Yes, absolutely. But AIPAC is all Americans. If it had Israelis then it would be a foreign lobby.”>>>>>>>>>>

      It doesnt matter. The dual or not dual citizenship doesnt matter. Whether the AIPAC member are American or not doesnt matter. In fact it makes it worse for them.
      Because the fact is some day the subversive activities of AIPAC and other I-Orgs in this country are to create a huge outrage that all the public cant ignore---and then something will be done about it.
      So until then you can hasbara all you want, that wont make any difference either in the end.

    • I still think Finkelstein deserves respect for his lifetime of exposing the holocuast and zio mafia.
      Hes smart enough to have been able to do whatever he wanted and have a nice trouble free life but he chose to fight the cult instead.
      And paid the price for it.
      So whatever else anyone may disagree with him on he's earned respect the hard way.

      Israel constitutes a “strategic asset” of the US and can count on the clout of a powerful domestic lobby.

      A declassified US intergovernmental working group report said that view isn’t an accurate description of reality. Israel is not a valuable asset.
      >>>>>

      lol...thats the 'strange statement 'of his I was referring to in my comment.
      Surely as deep into this as he has been most of his life he knows thats been debunked over and over by heads of the military and intelligence.

    • I dont known why Obama or Kerry are doing the peace farce.
      They obviously arent it to win it.
      So the motive doesnt really matter.
      If I had to guess I/P has been regarded as a chore on the 'to do ' list of every White House, so they hold meetings on how to tidy up the mess and when no one agrees on how , its passed on to the next WH 'to do' list.

    • I think basically Finkelstein has worn his brain out on Israel over the decades and is now totally muddled...as the strange statements in this piece show.
      He's lost, tired and crumbling.
      Its too bad, he was good once upon a time.
      First he was victimized by the US Zionist and now he's a victim of Israel.

  • Southern Poverty Law Center takes Blumenthal's side against smear campaign
    • Where is the anti semitic violence in the US besides the lone wolf lunatics like Miller?
      The only killing of Jewish people for being Jewish I have seen reported in the US in umpteen decades was also a lone nutcase attack in Seattle several years ago.
      920 reported hate crime attacks on Jews and mainly on Jewish property v. the
      2,590 racially motivated attacks on Blacks in the same year tells me we have a bigger problem.
      Will we ever get rid of both? I doubt it. Especially with religion, race and ethnics propelling too much of our politics.

      But yes I agree those after Max could care less about Jews being attacked if it serves their larger agenda. Quite willing to sacrifice them for the cause.

    • ''Pipes, loathsome as he is, has a superficially appealing point regarding hypocrisy'' ....David

      I think 'superficial' is the key word there as far as Pipes is concerned
      Pipes has gone way beyond just 'writing' for Islamophobes.
      He has actually 'met with' and encouraged right wing haters like Greet Wilders and collaborated with others like the right wing editor of the
      newspaper Jyllands‑Posten, Fleming Rose who traveled all the way to Philadelphia to meet with Pipes and then published the infamous and insulting Muhammad cartoon that set off Muslim protest.

      Max is not colluding with the KKK or any bigot or right wing nationalist for the purpose of stirring hate and violence.
      So in the comparison of people picking up on other 'people's writings' Pipes is just trying to gloss over his motives in his writings.
      The difference in Max's writings and Pipe's writing is the different motives of someone like Pipes and someone like Max.

  • 'Like the NRA, AIPAC sows fear in the halls of Congress' -- Dem consultant
    • link to lobelog.com

      ''.....in a piece I posted on this blog on the same day that Ali and Eli published their piece in Salon that suggested his motivation may relate to campaign finance, specifically the fact that he,Mark Kirk, has received more financial support from PACs associated with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) than any other member of Congress during the last 12 years. According to opensecrets.org, “pro-Israel” groups gave Kirk’s campaigns (rounded to nearest $1,000):
      $95,000 in 2002
      $136,700 in 2004
      $315,000 in 2006
      $445,000 in 2008
      $640,000 in 2010 (when he ran for Senate)

    • I am totally for main stream media ads just as scary aimed at Israel and the I-Lobby.
      Quote OBL on I/P inspiring the WTC attack.
      Show the several America peace activist for Palestine shot in the head by the IDF and Rachel Corrie being bulldozed, there are still videos of them on youtube. Caption them off with the many Israeli jokes about "Pancake Rachel".
      Do an ad with the Netanyahu video in which he tells a young Israeli that America will do what Israel tells it to do.
      Do an ad showing the Israeli IDF's Rabbi quotes on how it is allowed and even recommended to kill goys and Arabs and their children lest they grow up to confront the Jews. And how the souls of non Jews are inferior to Jews. Caption: Is this an shared value with America?
      Do ads during next election featuring the I-people like Adelson and Hamin who are contributing to candidates with their statements on being a single issue person and that issue being Israel. And how Adelson regrets he served in the US military instead of Israels.
      Do ads on candidates past statements at AIPAC conferences like Hillary pledging 'whatever US blood and treasure it takes in defense of Israel." And how as Hoyer said, 'it is mandatory that every US congressperson understand their 'duty' to Israel.
      Do an ad on the Lobby and money showcasing someone like the Kirk example below and asking 'how many pieces of silver' did it take for you to start saying congress should only listen to Israeli intelligence and not US intelligence?
      Do an ad on the Hagel sentate hearing featuring some of the statements and questions on his lack of 'loyalty to Israel' disqualifying him as a Sec of US Defense.
      Do some ads with former US congresspeople who said ''if Americans knew what the Lobby was doing in America they would rise up against the government".
      Do an ad on what Truman actually said about the creation of the zionist state of Israel being against all American principles of democracy.
      Do an ad featuring the survivors of the USS Liberty who know the attack was not an 'accident' by Israel and how it was covered up by the US government.
      Do an ad featuring what Carter did in giving Egypt and Jordon billions in US aid to make peace with Israel and how they now call him a anti semite.

      There is sooooooooooo much out there straight out of the mouth of Israel and its politicians it would be hard to choose just a few...its a 64 year treasure trove of endless treason, subversion, betrayals, deceit, stealing, spying, lying and attacks on US democracy and its patriots by an ungrateful, mafia like parasitic cult who holds the US and all Americans in utter contempt for our most unparalleled in history generosity to them.

      Perhaps one day some deep pocket patriot will step forward and blitz the public with the bare facts on Israel and the Lobby owned US congresspeople.
      He might have to go to the supreme court to win the right of free political speech on Israel.
      But if that day ever comes Israel and the Lobby and their US politicians are dead in the water forever.

      I suggest when this happens the sponsors consider naming their PAC 'The Emergency Committee for America'.

  • Tensions rise on Temple Mount as rightwing Jews seek to hold Passover rituals there
    • a blah chick says:

      April 19, 2014 at 8:17 pm

      When I was growing up it was common for Israeli Jews to tell Palestinians to just go live in another Arab country, there were 22 to choose from!
      >>>>>>>>>>

      I dont know how many times I have heard the claim/refrain that Jews had no land and Arabs had lots of land so they should have some of it.
      What kind of thinking is this?
      Thats like a homeless person saying other people have homes and I have none so I should be entitled to take someone's home.

  • On Easter, costly Jews - and costly Palestinians
    • Jesus was a heretic to Judaism. Buddha was a Hindu heretic. Socrates was a hereric to the Greek State Gods.

      Religious and State Authorities usually try to kill their heretics to protect their powers.
      Knowing how powers protect themselves says the Roman and Jewish authorities were both on board with getting rid of the heretic Jesus.
