  • 'I love Obama' 'You're infatuated' (The argument on the left)
    • I think it would be more apt to dissect Obama,s Presidency after the Iran vote and more importantly at the end of his presidency.The landscape may just look entirely different . I refer only to the I/P issue as that is what this site is all about.

  • Flying off to Israel, Dem Congressman laments lack of voting rights in U.S.
    • It beggars belief how such people can be so dense.

      Perhaps wanna be congress critters and senators should have to pass a test of basic level of intellect before setting them loose on the electorate.

  • Israel orders new demolitions for Bedouin community located in strategic Jerusalem corridor
    • We act in God,s name. You will not defy God,s wishes.We do not care where you go.Jordan is that way .Try there.We will be back in 2 hours ---be gone.This is Israel and is for Jews only.Palestinians have no business living amongst God,s chosen people.

      This an interesting move by Israel when the world is already getting it,s full of zionist wailing and whining and screaming about pogroms and antisemitism and existential threats and security..Do these people really believe they are invincible against most of the rest of the world.

      Mass delusion on a grand scale.Unprecedented I would say.

      Does anyone else get the impression that Israel knows the gig is up and is "running to the hills and taking what they can, so to speak , before the curtain comes down on the so called Greater Israel " project.

  • Netanyahu will lobby American Jews on deal, calling on alleged loyalty to Jewish state
    • "I.e., it doesn’t matter if you support the deal, you have to give voice to Israel’s fears - See more at: link to mondoweiss.net"

      It would be like a defence attorney asking the jury to consider a pedophile,s fears about going to prison because he might be harmed or raped.

      Israel,s fears have long since lost credibility , given Nietanyahu,s propensity for claiming that Iran will have a bomb in 6 months.

      We are the ones who should fear the possibility that Israel will attack Iran and leave the ensuing mess for the rest of us to clean up.

  • AIPAC taking all but 3 freshmen Congresspeople to Israel in effort to sabotage Iran deal
    • "Maybe we aren’t hearing from the P4+1 simply because our main media is not reporting on it? - See more at: link to mondoweiss.net" Citizen.

      I wouldn,t expect the US media to report it but I have not noticed any comments from leaders here in Europe , considering all the effort invested .

    • Why are we not hearing from the leaders of the other nations who put this deal together.Are they afraid to be accused of interfering with the internal affairs of a sovereign nation.It is not just the US,s business when someone like Nietanyahu is going out of his way to undo all the investment of time and money put in by the "P4 + 1. I am aware that the UN has passed the resolution but it might be helpful to have those leaders shout it out loud and clear that the US is on it,s own if the deal is undone by the congress.It is time for the P4 to demand equal time in Congress to make their case.

      It is time to fight fire with fire.

  • The two-state pipedream: Israel will move 100s of 1000s of settlers
    • Every new illegal settlement built across the Green line was built to achieve this very outcome.Every successive Israeli Gov has contributed to Ben Gurion,s plan to take over the whole of the so called "Greater Israel".,

      If there is to be a bloodbath , then so be it.No one but those perpetrating and supporting this 60 year crime of ethnic cleansing is to blame.One thing is sure , the status quo cannot continue and as BDS bites harder and Israel becomes more and more isolated , nothing can stop the inevitable mayhem that will ensue.Maybe all those 2SSer,s/ Israel apologists in the US with dual citizenship will don their olive uniform and go and put their bodies where their mouths have been.

      It is not as if they have not been warned.

      My thoughts would be with those Jews who had the courage to act and speak out against this criminal enterprise.

  • Did the BBC cover up the anti-Semitism of Gaza's children?
    • Isnt,t part of this problem caused by Israel,s insistence that no deal will be made with the Palestinians, (there won,t be in any event) until , they , the Palestinians recognise the "Jewish State.Hell these kids are doing just that .

    • "Haven’t we made identification with the State of Israel so central to modern Jewish identity that the Gazan children are only reflecting what we have been saying of ourselves for decades? We are at one with Israel. - See more at: link to mondoweiss.net" RC

      But when Israel,s apologists claim Israel is surrounded by a sea of Arabs or run to the pols, the Arabs are going in droves or Arab terrorism or Arab intransigence or Arab hatred blah , blah, blah , thats no issue. Apparently Israeli Jewish children refer to Jordanians or Palestinians or Lebanese , etc etc.I should darn well think ,the children of Gaza hate the people who imprison them and bomb their homes and schools and hospitals and spray them with skunk juice and beat them up .Why would it be such an unusual thing for them to hate "The Jewish State".Hell , I hate "The Jewish State because of it,s policies and actions.So if I say I hate Israel all will be forgiven.This is just sem-antics by people who are scraping the bottom of the barrel trying to divert attention from their evil deeds.

      .

  • The normal horrors
    • "Involved in it are decent people who appear completely normal, and act completely normally. Don’t be fooled by them, they have a characteristic: in their sweetest dream about a life of peace, fraternity and friendship, they see Gaza stripped of its weapons, the Palestinian Authority stripped of its weapons, and the State of Israel as a Jewish state sitting on its reservoirs of weapons, in which Arabs have civil rights. Here, in this standard place, which is so far today from the margins of fantasy, sits the source of the madness that we are witness to now. - See more at: link to mondoweiss.net"

      This refers to the "Normal " Settlers that Yonah excuses.

      Every person involved in any way in the occupation , from the street cleaner to the bus driver to the admin clerk at the ministry of social welfare to the owner of a construction company building illegal squats to the PM and leaders of Israel are aiding and abetting war crimes on a grand scale.Those who make excuses for these people , such as Yonah , are no less complicit.

      Their hands are just as covered in blood as is the soldier who shoots a Palestinian kid in the back , when he is running in the opposite direction.

      I ask these people, How do you sleep or look in the mirror and worse still , come here and defend these criminals.

  • The extremism of the center in Israel
    • "President Rivlin is a “mensch”. Jon S

      The hell ,you say ?.

      "Rivlin is known to be strongly opposed to the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and has voiced support for a version of a one-state solution. He is described as a staunch supporter of Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank.[27] On 29 April 2010, he said that he "would rather accept Palestinians as Israeli citizens than divide Israel and the West Bank in a future two-state peace solution".[28] This position, reflecting an idea of both the radical left and radical right in Israel, is considered controversial, but has also been praised as recognising current realities in Israel and the Palestinian Territories.[29] After taking over as the President, he said Israel is not fighting the Palestinian people or Islam but is fighting murderous terrorism.[30]"

    • "So stabbing the generous British, who opened Palestine to Jewish immigration in the back is somehow better than attacking Palestinians? Okay. " Mooser

      Don,t be too harsh.Collins stabbed the generous British in the back , who opened up the northern part of Ireland to Scottish immigration.

    • @Amigo“Incidentally, Yitzhak Shamir adopted the nom-de-guerre “Michael “, in honor of Irish leader Michael Collins. ” Yonah

      Apologies to Yonah.That post should have been addressed to Jon S.

    • "Incidentally, Yitzhak Shamir adopted the nom-de-guerre “Michael “, in honor of Irish leader Michael Collins. " Yonah

      Incidentally , Michael Collins did not throw bombs into civilian markets.He and his men shot British soldiers and spies and the odd traitor .I doubt he would have been honoured by Shamir,s self agrandisement.

      It is also worth noting (as can be seen by the link that I provided) that Lehi was considered a "Terrorist group " by Israel,s leaders .Takes one to know one , I guess.

      Lehi was involved in the Deir Yassin massacre in which 240 civilians were murdered and I bet there are lots more killings of civilians on record.

      I really do not get your point.Israel was founded in terrorism and continues that path to this day.

    • Check this one out.

      "One of Bennett’s allies in parliament suggested that an Israeli combat bulldozer knock down the Supreme Court." WAPO.

      The report did not name him/her.I have to say, it might be a good idea since it has become a rubber stamp for right wing policies.

    • "I don’t know the history of the Irgun fighters that you named " Yonah

      Here is a link to educate you on Lehi Members who committed dozens of terrorist acts when they were not busy siding up to the Nazis and offering to fight with them against the British because they saw the Nazis as lesser enemies.

      link to en.wikipedia.org

      Israel gave an amnesty to these thugs and even instituted a Ribbon in their honour named the "Lehi Ribbon of Honour" .

      Yep , Israel honours it,s terrorists and makes PM,s of them.Shamir was the leader of the Lehi gang.

      Yonah , you really ought to broaden you knowledge of this subject matter.It will help to heal you and save you embarrassment.

      Knowledge is power.Truth is even more powerful.

      And financially!!.

      "Loans of almost half a billion shekels ($132 million) owed to the World Zionist Organization by communities in the Golan Heights and Jewish settlements in the West Bank have reportedly been largely forgiven by the government in recent years.

      The amount owed on the long-term loans — handed out by the organization’s Settlement Division — has been steadily shrinking thanks to a government debt forgiveness program, Israeli daily Haaretz said Thursday. The Settlement Division itself is funded by the government". Times of Israel.

      She was simply telling this johnny come lately and a tool of the occupying force , who is denying her entry to "her " homeland ,that her roots in "Palestine" only go back to 1948 or later , whereas Susan,s roots are most likely centuries old .No ethnic nationalism involved under the circumstances and to describe it as nonsensical is --well , nonsense.

  • Pelosi says Iran deal has the votes, and Podhoretz urges Israel to attack Iran
    • "And so my counsel to proponents of the new consensus is to consider the unspeakable horrors that would then be visited not just on Israel and Iran but on the entire region and beyond. The destruction would be far worse than any imaginable consequences of an Israeli conventional strike today when there is still a chance to put at least a temporary halt, and conceivably even a permanent one, to the relentless Iranian quest for the bomb -" Podhoretz.

      The deal on the table ensures a temporary halt without any one dying but war mongers like Podhoretz can,t live with that.They want blood--Iranian blood to preserve Israeli hegemony in the region he claims to be so concerned about.Most experts state that if Iran is attacked by Israel then Iran "Will" develope the bomb and will have every right to do so.

      Will someone save us from slime like Podhoretz.How many of his grandchildren will be donning uniforms to go and defend Israel.

      This story is getting legs .BBC is covering it and giving all the sordid details .That was good until they insisted on repeating Nietanyahu,s faux condemnation of this terrorist act.Then to make it even more painful we had to suffer that lying toad , Mark Regev ,( The apologist for war crimes with the SA accent , or is that Australian )telling us how Israel will "Hunt down " these terrrroreeests" and bring them to justice.

      Didn,t notice him or Nietanyahu promising to demolish their homes.No sirreee.Israel,s attempts to catch Jewish terrorists is like watching a soap opera.Check back in 6 months or longer to catch up.These murdering swine will not be found, unless they were caught on video and even then they will be given token sentences to be served in some 5 star open prison reserved for Israel,s brave heroes .

      The whole thing is more than sickening.It is vile beyond imagination.

    • Oldgeezer, "The openly racist government encourages and supports this behaviour, if not directly then through their public statements. "

      And actions.Nietanyahu,s response to the "authorities " leveling two illegal squats,(by Israeli law) was to announce the approval of 300 more of the same.I don,t have the link but it was reported in Haaretz or J post.So he has now taken to punishing Palestinians for acts carried out by his own Gov officials.Those damn Supreme courts are the curse of any democracy , eh.

      Apologies , I just noted Just gave the link at top of thread.

  • Amnesty: Israel committed war crimes in retaliation for capture of Israeli soldier
    • It is very very hard to watch this knowing the murdering zionist regime laughs at the world and gives us the finger and will probably do it again.

    • Wasn,t Valarie Plame outed by one of the chicken hawk neoscons in the Bush Junior WMD fiasco. Payback is the s---s.

      An interesting dichotomy would be if pro deal mega dollars roll in to finance MSM ads like thees and the tv execs have to choose between Israel and profits.They either show the ads or expose themselves.The house of cards is collapsing one card at a time.

      Neitanyahu has spent 20 + years trying to destroy Iran and in the process has almost certainly destroyed the Lobby and surely Israel won,t be around a whole lot longer without it,s mouth piece in the USA.

      Out with Zionism and in with democracy. The ironic part is , that most future Jewish "Palisraelis" will thank those who freed them from the prison of Jewish Israeli exceptionalism / elitism and supremacism and curse those who destroyed the Jewish state by never missing an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

      Got news for you catalan, Palestinians care about Israeli pols.They ahve to deal with them.

      "Israel’s new justice minister considers all Palestinians to be ‘the enemy’ " Ayalet

      Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu forming the most right-wing government in his country's history. Netanyahu's slim majority in the Knesset, the Israeli parliament, was secured after a pact with the Jewish Home party, led by Naftali Bennett, an ultra-nationalist who draws much of his support from Israel's settler population and rejects a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
      After all, Shaked is about to gain a cabinet post in a climate in which an Israeli former foreign minister can call for the "beheading" of disloyal Arabs with no political cost and in which warning of Arabs "voting in droves" helped Netanyahu's Likud party win Israel's general election earlier this year."WP

    • The proposal to re-enter Gaza is gaining traction.

      In recent weeks there have been several articles from Israeli media supporting the idea of re-colonising Gaza.Here is Moshe Arens writing about " Undoing a wrong" and "re settling " Gaza and Northern Samaria.

      " It's not too late for Israel to right its wrong and resettle Gaza, northern Samaria
      Ten years after the disengagement, after thousands of rockets falling on good part of Israel, it's clear that Ariel Sharon was wrong. But some of that wrong can be fixed." Haaretz/Arens.

      Yeah but they do that on a voluntary basis , unlike the Palestinians who use it when Israel allows them to.One might refer to Israel,s policy as , "The Amisization" of The Palestinian People.

      "They don’t tend to complain." Hopknee.

      Why, are they under occupation and having their land stolen and their people murdered.Those damn Palestinians , never happy , no matter how much you take from or do to them.

  • Hundreds of Israelis join protest to save Bedouin village on brink of demolition
    • ABC , Nothing new in private Palestinian land being used to build illegal squats.Remember the sasson report.

      "The report states:

      The housing ministry supplied 400 mobile homes for outposts on private Palestinian land.
      The defense ministry approved the positioning of trailers to begin new outposts.
      The education ministry paid for nurseries and their teachers.
      The energy ministry connected outposts to the electricity grid.
      Roads to outposts were paid for with taxpayers' money.

      The report mentioned 150 communities in the West Bank with incomplete or nonexistent permits, but Sasson cautions that this list was not exhaustive, due to the lack of cooperation of some ministries and government offices which, according to her, failed to hand over some important documents. She recommended that the Housing Ministry be stripped of authority over construction of settlements in the West Bank, and that this power be transferred to the cabinet. The Housing Minister at the time of the tabling the report, Isaac Herzog (Labour), said following the release of the report that every expense earmarked for the settlements would subsequently need the approval of the Ministry's director-general. Up until then, the heads of each department at the Ministry had been able to sign off on expenses for various construction and infrastructure matters at the settlements.

      The settlement expansion initiative was backed by Sharon when he was Foreign Minister under Binyamin Netanyahu. In 1998 he publicly urged settlers to seize hilltops in order to break up the contiguity of Palestinian areas and prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state [2], saying: "Let everyone get a move on and take some hilltops! Whatever we take, will be ours, and whatever we don't take, will not be ours!" [3] The report did not mention Sharon, however. Nevertheless, the report prompted calls that Sharon and other former and current government officials face legal repercussions for their alleged official involvement in the funding of illegal settlements.[1]" wiki

    • Sinn Fein , who has been Greece,s strongest supporter in the Dail (Irish parliament) may have to retract it.

      link to sinnfein.ie

      Sinn Fein which is a staunch supporter of Palestinian rights will not view positively this arrangement by Greece with the GOI . Sinn Fein is the third largest party in the Dail , (14 seats out of 166) and if you add to that the dozen or so Independent members , who are also pro Palestinian , Greece will see it,s support decrease considerably. Sinn Fein is hardly likely to continue it,s support for Greece if it,s leaders are using some of the financial support to visit and make agreements with Israel that would allow IDF war criminals walk free in the EU.

      In any event , all of this is superfluous as Israel is going down the tubes.Self destruction is a hard disease to cure , especially as Zionists are so deeply mired in their support for land theft and belief that they are the chosen people and can do as they please with impunity.

      It does and thanks.It,s nice to know the UK gov is keeping tabs on Israel.

    • Annie, they wont do anything until the Israelis piss them of further but it get,s closer every day.Israel,s decision 2 days ago to build another 900 illegal squats and approve more so called (under Israeli law) illegal outposts is just another nail in the zionist coffin.

      It,s their pockets that need to be hit and consequently their ability to finance illegal squats and continue mowing the lawn as well as fund the ongoing global charm offensive and the EU knows this but may be getting threats from the US administration to ease off.

      Last week I posted a link to a story on J Post that stated that the GOI had forgiven loans to squatters to the tune of 135 milllion dollars , some of which had 90%of the original loan still outstanding even those loans were issued in the Seventies.These squatters have been living almost for free since then. More of the same is planned.

      Really?.

      "The Prime Minister is no stranger to making pronouncements to Congress. In 2002, in the lead- up to the disastrous U.S. invasion of Iraq, he said this: “If you take out Saddam, Saddam’s regime, I guarantee you that it will have enormous positive reverberations on the region”.

  • Democrats are 'uncomfortable' with Iran deal because Netanyahu is so 'influential in our country' -- Rep. Ellison
    • Maybe Democrats should start heeding Obama,s policies.

      " Obama officials tell Haaretz: Netanyahu would reject any Iran deal - except capitulation
      Congressional override of a presidential veto would make it harder for U.S. to defend Israel, senior administration officials tell Haaretz.

      The officials expressed both dismay and disappointment at the fact that Netanyahu and other Israeli opponents of the Iran deal did not find anything positive in the Vienna agreement – even though many Israeli positions had been incorporated in the final document. The officials noted that the agreement also met the “red lines” that Netanyahu himself had drawn during the past few years – “and then some.”

      Under such circumstances, they added, “It’s hard to have reasoned discussions” with Israel.

      The officials were confident, however, that Congress would ultimately approve the deal or at least be unable to muster the votes to override a presidential veto. They painted a dark scenario, however, if their confidence turns out to be misplaced. A Congressional vote against the deal would most certainly lead to its complete unraveling, allowing Iran to slip away from its own commitments. Tehran would then be free to pursue its nuclear program, as the international sanctions regime inevitably collapses. Washington, in the meantime, would be roundly condemned by its allies and isolated on the international stage.

      “It’s hard to see how that is good for either the United States or Israel,” the officials said. "Haaretz
