  • Palestinian babies not included on Israel gov't list of most popular names
    • Nothing new or recent about this mentality!.

      "After the depopulation, an Israeli member of the MAPAI secretariat remarked in 1949: "The landscape is also more beautiful. I enjoy it, especially when travelling between Haifa and Tel Aviv, and there is not a single Arab to be seen."

      It survives to this day in the minds of the Ivris and mayhem and gene schaes et al racist land thieves and colonialist supremacists.

    • So , the way I see it, it,s just fine and dandy if goyim use Hebrew names --David --eg , but heavens forbid if an Israeli Jew gives an Arabic name to their child .

      Mohammed Netanyahu has a nice ring to it or how about Khaled Disraeli.Could have a lot of fun with that.

      BTW , does the Israeli mail service deliver mail to anyone called Mohammed.

      Lets play , pretend there are no Palestinians.We will all feel much more secure .

  • Homegrown jihadis and the limits of the Israel lobby
    • Will we see a spate of "Euroguantanamos" to house "suspects" without trials for 10 years.

      Will we see the re emergence of rendition flights.

      If ISIS set out to screw up Europe and the USA plus a few stragglers like Australia /Canada , they sure must be smiling.

      Their recruiting numbers must be increasing beyond their wildest dreams.

    • "Gimme a break!" palikari

      Take as long as you want .

      While you are on your break , study Jewish terrorism going back to Irgun/stern and lehi.

      And look up the meaning of terrorism!!.

      " 1. systematic use of violence and intimidation to achieve some goal.

      2. the act of terrorizing.

      3. the state of being terrorised.

      Fits Israel perfectly so those 4700 foreigners fighting with Israel are Terrorists.

  • Keffiyehs in Harlem in 'Ghetto to Gaza' rap
    • "seems like in the name of sportsmanship Israel
      should have been kicked out of the world football program
      when ‘they’ arrested/shot/killed Palestine players "michelle

      Didn,t you hear.They tried those guys but found the victims guilty of existing as non Jews in the so called Jewish state.

      The IDF was simply carrying out orders.

    • Sorry OT but some good news on the UEFA 2020 soccer competition.

      " Israel's Euro 2020 soccer bid fails
      BDS Movement takes partial credit, although attempt to host part of soccer final seemed to have been doomed by 'fundamentally' flawed bid.

      "The Irish Times singled out Israel as "fundamentally extremely flawed." It noted that Jerusalem's bid failed to include the projected number of available hotel beds and lacked details regarding the venue, Teddy Stadium. "

      link to

      Imagine , the nation with all those Nobel prize winners is incapable of presenting a credible bid to run a soccer game.

      Jut as well they are not going to be hosting a game.

      The next step is to get them kicked out of UEFA.They are not in Europe so should not be even considered.

  • Naive? At a Jewish spiritual retreat center, I insist on talking about Gaza
    • "What’s a Zio-Supremist?" gs

      You tell us.

      It,s your word.

      If you meant to ask what a "Zio supremacist " is , then that would be similar to a snob.

      Someone who thinks they are better than they are.

    • "If I was at this retreat, lynne would have been in tears. " gs

      Well, if your responses here are anything to go by , then I agree .She would have been in tears, of laughter.

    • Page: 24
    • "Much like the Ivris and the mayhems " amigo

      Please add Gene Shae to that.

      Ok Councillor.

    • "And so it was at my discussion group. I tried to talk facts in vain; no-one was listening. A vicious hasbara indoctrination had overtaken these people’s minds and shuttered their ability to think - "Lynn

      Much like the Ivris and the mayhems and others who claim to be liberal zionists (never met one) but cannot get past placing most of the blame where it belongs.

    • "What does this have to do with spirituality? she complained to one of the other vacationers "

      Has to qualify as the most idiotic question of the decade.

      "I’d come for the ‘Mikvah’ retreat, named after the purifying ritual immersion in water which is an integral part of Jewish practice. The Center described the retreat as a ‘transformative experience’, where we could delve deep into spiritual practice and emerge refreshed and purified."Lynn

      I wonder if Gazans could avail of this trans-formative and purifying experience , or is that only necessary for those feeling guilty about something.

      It is all so simple!!.

      Spend the whole year denying Israel,s war crimes and then take a trip to the centre of the earth and purify yourself --of what?.

      They have not done anything wrong--right.

  • Hamas is just as bad as ISIS and worse than Boko Haram -- Israeli government propaganda
    • "Did you know that Hamas is still holding the bodies of Israeli soldiers? Heartless,ghouls. "gs

      Are you referring to the former or the latter???.

      Oh by the way, did you know Israel trades in dead Palestinian/ Hizbollah resistance fighters.

      Do a little research Gene before you lunge in head first.

      Did you not learn that in Law School????.

    • “First of all, Palestine – from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea, from its north to its south – is our land, our right, and our homeland. There will be no relinquishing or forsaking even an inch or small part of it. Second, Palestine was, continues to be, and will remain Arab and Islamic. It belongs to the Arab and the Islamic world. Palestine belongs to us and to nobody else.” mayhem

      Your link states that the "Translation " and tape are provided by "MEMRI".

      Nuff said.

      Now lets compare the Likud charter, source not in question.

      "a. “The Jordan river will be the permanent eastern border of the State of Israel.”

      b. “Jerusalem is the eternal, united capital of the State of Israel and only of Israel. The government will flatly reject Palestinian proposals to divide Jerusalem”

      c. “The Government of Israel flatly rejects the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state west of the Jordan river.”

      d. “The Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza are the realization of Zionist values. Settlement of the land is a clear expression of the unassailable right of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel and constitutes an important asset in the defense of the vital interests of the State of Israel. The Likud will continue to strengthen and develop these communities and will prevent their uprooting.”

  • Israeli Supreme Court upholds law allowing housing discrimination against Palestinians
    • "I don’t think Israeli Arabs want Jews moving to their towns." ds

      So you wont complain if they quote this law and tell Israeli Jews to get lost and rent elsewhere.

      By the way, Israel is the State of the Israeli people ,Not the State of the Jewish people.
      Just like Ireland is the State of the Irish people --not the State of the Catholic people even though a large proportion of Ireland is Catholic.Separation of Church and state laws require that in true democracies.

      Israel is no where close to being a democracy.It never was and never will be, which is why in it,s present makeup , it will collapse.

    • This needs to be front page news on every major newspaper worldwide.

      This is pure and simple racism and consequently , Apartheid in intent.

      We now can be certain that the rot that is zionism has gotten inside Israel,s supreme Court.

    • Annie, did you take a quick look at DS archives.

      You have got a right one there , This poster believes Syrian Heights belongs to Israel and black is white and white is black and pigs fly and the Real estate guy in the sky gave Israel to the Jews.

      Yep, some mothers do ave them.

      Does your mommy know you are using the pc.

  • The Shipman 'disgrace' -- did NY Police commish Bill Bratton just say the same thing?
    • It is not anti semitic to condemn the vile acts perpetrated by Israel against the Palestinian people.

      Clearly there would be a spike in criticism of Israel,s crimes such as those committed in Gaza.

      You forgot the generosity of dick and jane taxpayer who have given Israel some 135 billion dollars since 1949, Give or take 10 billion.

      "Since 1949 the U.S. has given Israel a total of $83.205 billion. The interest costs borne by U.S. tax payers on behalf of Israel are $49.937 billion, thus making the total amount of aid given to Israel since 1949 $133.132 billion. This may mean that U.S. government has given more federal aid to the average Israeli citizen in a given year than it has given to the average American citizen."

Congressional Black Caucus members know that Israel requires different colored license plates for non-Jews so their vehicles can be profiled at a distance, and Jewish-only roads between settlements carved from the villages of Palestinians and watched voer by military garrisons. They know that Israel refuses to recognize mixed marriages, or even marriages between Palestinians in Gaza and those on the West Bank.

      "Misbehaviour of personnel manning checkpoints

      The Israel Defense Forces' Military Advocate General, Maj. Gen. Dr. Menachem Finkelstein released a statement to the Knesset Constitution, Justice and Law Committee in which he reported that there were many complaints about the troops manning the checkpoints abusing and humiliating Palestinians. He said that the excessive number of complaints "lit a red light". He said that the number of complaints required an examination to see whether the misbehavior was being caused by an excessive workload of the IDF soldiers manning the checkpoints.[18]

      Israelis are in someone else's country trying to look normal , intentional or not , they are targets for derision and boycott until the nation they represent ends the occupation and gets out of Palestine.

    • In Ireland (Republic) in the late 60, s early 70.s.IRA spokespersons were banned from doing a full appearance on TV.The journalist could film them (face hidden and voice stand in)at a remote location and then give the film to the network for airing.This policy of not allowing the minority of NI to have a voice while allowing their oppressors full access to the media, went on for 10 years before someone finally figured out that policy was not going anywhere.This same approach has been going on in the US for decades, albeit not Government policy , it has still prevented the Palestinians from speaking and consequently denied Dick and Jane from knowing the truth.

      Any indication that the truth will out is a very welcome event and we will know when Israel,s apologists like Assouline lose their cool when shown up as the liar they are.
