    • So if Israel has nothing to worry about , why all the efforts to keep them from joining the ICC.

      Israel Commits Crimes Without Punishment

      By Stephen Lendman

      February 10, 2013 "Information Clearing House" - Israel is a rogue state. It's a serial abuser. It commits crimes without punishment. It tolerates no criticism.

      Last May, it suspended contact with the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

      On April 30, Haaretz headlined "Israel joins UN list of states limiting human rights organizations," saying:

      Censure followed an earlier Ministerial Committee on Legislation approval to restrict foreign governments from funding NGOs. It should have been for crimes against humanity. Israel commits them daily.

      It spurns fundamental rule of law principles. It rejects Fourth Geneva's de jure applicability. It's defied dozens of UN resolutions. It ignored the International Court of Justice's 2004 condemnation of its Separation Wall.

      It refused cooperation with the Goldstone Commission on Cast Lead. In 2012, it denied UN investigators entry to collect testimonies on its

      Did you just graduate from Hasbara Central.Best get your money back.You are being used.

      Try educating yourself about Israel,s numerous Racist Laws against it,s Palestinian Citizens.Note , it is an article by the NYT so hardly a Palestinian propaganda mag.

    • "If you want to open a new thread of Kfar Qassem, go right ahead but I won’t participate because that was a crime by Israelis which the state recognized and one which was not praised, justified or otherwise condoned unlike the positive treatment Arab killers receive."ymedad

      Ever heard of the Lehi Ribbon of Honour given in honour of those Jewish Terrorists in the Lehi Gang.

      You and your fellow apologists are full of your zionist lies and propaganda.

  • NY Times profile of Gazan long distance runner reveals reality of occupation
    • Ira, is anyone reporting on the NYT editorial re Peace Talks.

      In it they advise the US to get out of these talks and they also explicitly place the blame on Israel for the last breakdown.

      Here is the Haaretz link.Was unable to recover the NYT even though I posted it earlier on the "Palestinians can have an embassy in Jerusalem" article.

  • Palestinians can have an embassy in Jerusalem, but God forbid not a capital -- Israeli mayor
    • More xpose,s at the NYT ( compliments of the Editorial Board) and this is big

      "Perhaps the Obama administration’s effort to broker a deal was doomed from the start. In 2009, the administration focused on getting Israel to halt settlement building and ran into the obstinacy of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and resistance from the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, to entering peace talks. Since then, members of Mr. Netanyahu’s coalition government have tried to sabotage the talks. As Tzipi Livni, Israel’s chief negotiator, told the website Ynet, “There are people in the government who don’t want peace.” She cited Naftali Bennett, the leader of the pro-settler party Jewish Home, and Uri Ariel, the housing minister.nyt

      And from Haaretz,

      The New York Times placed the blame for the collapse of the process squarely on Israel, attributing it to Israel's failure to release the fourth batch of Palestinian prisoners, as agreed, and its announcement of 700 new housing units in Jerusalem.

      The Palestinians' response of applying to join 15 international organizations was legal, the paper said, noting that they "did not seek to join the International Criminal Court, a big fear of Israel’s."haaretz

    • "Refreshing honesty. BDS is intended to eliminate the state of Israel."mondonut.

      If anyone is eliminating the State of Israel, it,s you zionists who keep fuelling the BDS movement through your land theft and expulsions.

      But Hey, who am I to warn you against your actions.
      All I can say is "Keep up the good work" and to tell you what a co operative opposition you are.

      BTW, How does "Palsrael" sound.Got a nice inclusive ring to it , don,t you think.

    • "Well, I leave that for the national government. You can call Ramallah the center of the Palestinian people; they can bring their embassy to Jerusalem…"Barkat

      Why should the Palestinians do what no other nation will do by putting an Embassy in OCCUPIED JERUSALEM.

    • Whats God got to do with it???.

      BDS and resulting 1SS will sort out whose Capital it will be and it will not be the capital of a Zionist supremacist racist state.

      And neither will it be called Israel thanks to religious nutters like barkat.

  • Israel to annex 1,000 dunam of Palestinian land; Peace Now spox: 'faithful reflection of Netanyahu policy to extinguish last embers of negotiations with Palestinians'
    • If the EU was serious about punishing Israel , it would cut off all trade immediately.

      Israel will continue to commit war crimes unless it is taken to task in a painful manner instead of vacuous threats.

      As for the legalizing of stolen lands, only zionist freaks could dream up such BS.

      Indeed, even little ole Ireland has a Zionist (Alan Shatter) heading up our Justice and Defense ministries. One portfolio was not sufficient , this zio had to get his hands on two.Ireland is now buying arms from Israel, thanks to this Israel firster.

      don,t want much of a freehand --do ya jeff.

      I got news for you.You forgot sanctions or are you asking the US to demand that no other nations carry out sanctions against Israel.Of course you won,t mind that kind of interference from Uncle Sam , will ya ,hypocrite.

      Have you read Hostages post below .The one about the UN giving approval to Palestine,s request for membership of 15 UN agencies.

      That same Palestine you claim is not a State.

      Who is your supplier.

    • Mark Weiss is reporting this story in the Irish Times. Amazingly , there is no attempt to spin it.

      "Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu has ordered government ministries to cut off high-level contacts with the Palestinians on non-security related issues, as the crisis in Middle East peace talks worsens.

      Israel’s move was a response to the recent Palestinian decision to submit applications to join 15 international organisations and conventions, which itself came after Israel failed to carry out the fourth and final release of Palestinian prisoners agreed to when peace talks resumed last July, under American auspices." Mark Weiss

      We will wait to see if there will be an attempt to "Un-Poof " it.

    • Is not the Israeli response all the proof we need that Kerry blamed them.

      So why is the State Dept now trying to replace Poof with Spoof.

      They are a State , so where you been hiding and in any event you certainly couldn,t care less about their rights because you only care about the Rights of Jews just like all racist bigoted ziofreaks.

      Your clearly unhinged about this very dangerous truth getting out about Israel,s true intentions.It spells the end of your vile wishes for a Goyim free racist so called democracy and light unto the Nations.

      Your oft told Lies will never become truth.

    • "If you think I’m coming back
      Don’t hold your breath" seafoid

      I hope they do hold their breath.

  • 'The struggle for Palestinian liberation has become a mainstream global civil rights movement of our time': CUNY panel discusses the BDS movement
  • Apathy in Ramallah as negotiations with Israel dive
    • Meanwhile back in ziocentral!!!.

      Nuttyahoo and Bennet and co are planning to file ,"War Crimes Charges against Abbas".

      Haaretz did have a link but when I went back the story was pulled.

      One of my most recurring wishes would be to see Livni/nietanyahu/Bennet/olmert/diskin/et al in a chain gang on their way to the Hague.

      Then if they disrupt the court by shouting over others (A zionist habit) then gag these War Criminals .

    • "there is absolutely no reason why israel can’t ‘negotiate’ while under pressure from an international BDS campaign and UN involvement. sanctions anyone?"Annie.

      Sure there is!!.

      Israel,s leaders no longer control the squatters who are seriously infiltrated with IDF thugs and fascist elements.These people are going to fight to the last zio , even if a land swap is arranged the Greater Israel crowd will continue the "Fight". Remember, these thugs most likely are armed to the teeth and have who knows what type of weapons hidden in the Illegal Jews only settlements.

      Personally , I hope for a civil war where zionists kill each other off and save the rest of us from having to send in troops to sort it out.

      I hope I am wrong and BDS works.

  • US is 'absolutely adamant' that Palestine not go to ICC and wreck the peace process -- Power
    • "Why do people keep dragging Ireland into it? She has nothing to do with Ireland, and hasn’t for a long time."RoHa.

      I am Irish and live in Ireland.I, like many other Irish people follow Irish Media and Samantha Power gets way too much coverage and unfortunately it is always glowing and often touts her so called "Human Rights" record.

      So yes , it has something to do with Ireland when this war criminal is given accolades and praise when she should be shunned.

      BTW , are you having a bad day.You seem pensive.

    • Power claims it is a threat to Israel.

      Fine, then tell the Israeli war criminals you are in bed with to quit their War Crimes.

      Jesus, this cow is one big disappointment to Ireland.

      BTW, what Peace Process is she referring to???.

  • 'A Painful Price': The escalating war on Palestine solidarity at U of Michigan and beyond
    • Read the myopic ramblings of someone who produces these hateful supporters of Apartheid/Ethnic Cleansing child torture and war crimes.Only one end for these desperados.

      Note the hypocrisy in this racists mumblings.

      "The rabbis in Avot taught us: “Jealousy of others, hatred of others and uncontrollable desires (such as greed) remove a person from this world.” By this they meant that these evil instincts if left unchecked simply destroy human life and society.

      Governed by greed, desire, hatred and jealousy, the person caught in such a trap of one’s own making values human life cheaply. All means, violent and murderous as they may be, are fair game for use by such a person.

      Society must learn to protect itself from these vicious values. The current worldwide economic downturn may yet contribute to a reordering of priorities in today’s society. Thus Greed may yet become more tempered, though it is difficult to fathom a solution for unmitigated hatred.

      All pacifist philosophies throughout the ages have run aground on the shoals of irrational hatreds. It is the tragedy of human history that hatred destroys all human values, certainly the one of any sort of reverence for human life or the right of the “other” to also live unharmed. "Rabbi Wein
