      "Asked by Al-Jazeera if Netanyahu was sincere in past pledges to the US and European governments who have pressured Israel for years to come to negotiated settlement, Ben-Artzi said: " My feeling is that he made a maneuver, some kind of tactic: 'I will say that I agree, but I will act against it,'" and added "I don't think it's a good move, although it's regarded as sophisticated; but I have told him several times, 'You have to be sincere,' and I believe, and I know that in his heart and in his mind, he is against the Palestinian state."

      "[Netanyahu] sets so many conditions that it makes it impossible, practically speaking. So it's not really lying; he is saying, 'I'm in favor.' For example: 'I'm in favor of flying in the air, but on condition that you give me a plane. You are not going to give me a plane, and so I won't fly in the air.' Something like this," he said." j post

    • In the USA , shooting a teen can get you life.

      "Officer Jason Van Dyke, 37, turned himself in to authorities Tuesday morning and was later ordered held without bail in connection with the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, according to the Cook County State's Attorney's office. Van Dyke is scheduled to appear in court again Monday as Judge Donald Panarese said he wants to see video of the shooting.

      The dash-cam video, which a judge ordered police to release by Nov. 25, is said to show the teen holding a small knife and walking away from officers when one unexpectedly opens fire, spraying the teen with more than a dozen bullets and continuing to shoot as McDonald lies lifeless on the ground, according to an attorney for the McDonald family.

      Prosecutors said in court Tuesday that the shooting happened within 15 seconds, but for 13 of those seconds McDonald was on the ground. They added the video "clearly does not show McDonald advancing toward [Van Dyke]."

      In Israel , it is business as usual and Kerry /Obama tell us that Israel has a right to defend itself.

      So why is this cop being charged.He said he felt in danger as the kid had a knife..That.s the yardstick used by the goi and accepted by the US gov.

  • Israeli police shoot two scissors-wielding Palestinian teenage girls, killing one
    • Herchel , Ro Ha has a question for you down thread.

      Done the usual troll disappearing act when the going gets tough and , eh herchel.

    • "If your story can be believed you should be congratulated for doing Israel and Israelis a very big favor. Thank you." duh-bakr

      Indeed Yoni is doing Israel a favour but not for the reasons you think.

    • Ossinev, I am a firm believer in the zionist,s ability to destroy themselves.A gentle push in the back ,(BDS) will be added value.

      Nothing Israel does is far fetched . No act is too vile for these maniacs.

    • "American exceptionalism is just as bad." Lysias

      Question is , who taught who.

    • "I do not approve of the killing of stabbers once they have been disarmed, but to pretend that this situation is somehow normal as the commenters here seem to be indicating, is totally off base. " Yonah

      Your so right it is not normal.

      600,000 illegal squatters.
      450 Palestinian villages destroyed.
      Thousands of Palestinians murdered.
      Children tortured and jailed.
      Tens of thousands of Palestinian homes razed.

      Your dead right it is not normal and you think the people for whom this was done or who took part in it (most squatters ) have a right to feel normal.

      Get real.Fix the cause and change the effect.,Simple really , for those who think normally.

    • "What did they expect would happen?" ziokari

      The question should be , What do you expect "should" happen.

      Pretend the assailant is Jewish and you might , just might be able to come up with the answer.

      Btw , neutralising someone does not mean murdering them. But I forgot , we are dealing with a hate filled zionist war crimes apologist with not much in his future , or his past for that matter.

      Sad little wretch.

    • These daily street executions seem to be part of Israeli policy.Nobody seems to bat an eyelid.

      F--k International Law. Screw obeying any laws of war .We are the chosen people and because of what the "Europeans" did to us , we can do as we please.

      I wonder at what point the chosen people will call for an end to this .When two hundred "Jews " have been killed or does their tolerance for the death of Jews not reach that far.My point being , that the number of Palestinians murdered is of no concern to the chosen ones so the end of this will only be called for when enough Jews have been killed or the relative lack of disruption the occupation had on their lives becomes "unbearable".It,s always about them .They are always the victim and someone else is always at fault.

  • Leading anthropologists group overwhelmingly passes BDS resolution at Denver conference
    • "AAA has 10,000 members and only 12% cast votes.
      The resolution was foisted on the AAA by a handful of Pro-Palestinian AAA members.

      Victory!! jackduh

      Of the 12% who cast votes , 88% voted in favour.

      Victory ,, well yes it was for the Palestinian side.

      Your side had 136 votes .


      Try reading the article before making a jackass of yourself.

    • Good news and thanks for your efforts to bring it to us.One thing for sure , senor Rabinowitz will not be having a pleasant weekend.

  • 'Jewish Communal Fund' seeds Islamophobia as toxic as Trump's
    • "Is it really necessary to post a photo with every article? I mean, at least in this case?" Qualtrough

      Agreed.Maybe MW could include a "hide photo " option for these extreme cases .

    • "That is why the Arabs are now turning to BDS with the help of self hating Jews and other useful idiots." hertshell

      better to be a useful idiot than than a useless one.

    • "Keep dreaming friend"Duhbakr.

      No zionist is my friend. I am choosy about whom I make friends with and certainly liars and apologists of war crimes and land theft are ever likely to earn my friendship.Try disgust.

      Geller is an Israel firster in the full meaning of the term and is a hateful Islamaphobe and has earned her place on that deck of cards.

    • I think MW should arrange a "most wanted Israeli " deck of cards" as was done in the Iraq case Netanyahu would obviously be the "King" of spades .The difficulty would arise in deciding where the other 51 would be placed as there are so many vile zionists . Geller would be in the top ten with Bennet and lets not forget , Mark "let me be clear " Regev.

      So many possibilities .so few cards.

      Mind Altering Drug. short version = MAD.

    • "What percentage of investigations into American police officers are closed without indictment? How about investigations in to US Army personnel?" hopmi

      Wtf does that have to do with police officers (members on an occupying force) running riot on a daily basis and never paying a price higher than a slap on the wrist and then , only when they are caught on camera.

      You complained about someone calling you drunk just yesterday.That,s no surprise , given some of the irrelevant nonsense you post here.That level of mindless trollop can only be explained by the over use of some form of mind altering drug.

  • Posters linking Muslim students and BDS activists to terrorism appear on college campuses in California and Washington, DC
    • Horwitz demonstrates just how uneducated he is.

      Why would pro BDS, folks go to the bother of boycotting and divesting before stabbing Israel.It would be far easier to move to part three first.

      Work smarter , not harder.

      Horowitz is a moron who is fighting a losing battle and he knows it , hence his desperate reactions.

  • To the next 'NYT' Jerusalem chief -- Here is your job description
    • "She has and she does and she will and she succeeds." grover

      I too hope she succeeds.

      Destroying Israel , that is.

    • Speaking of unbalanced reporting , here is Caroline Glick doing her level best to destroy Israel.

      "Glick: EU is waging a trade war against Israel " .

      "But, Glick added, "the war itself is a breach of international law, it doesn't protect consumers and it harms human rights." The EU's recent decision in regard to settlement products is "illegal under international law. Under the WTO [World Trade Organization] treaties it is illegal to introduce technical barriers to trade among trading nations." Jpost

      What law, Glick. Post it or stfu.

      "Glick outlined a series of steps she recommends the Israeli government take in reaction to the European Union, including suing the body in the WTO tribunal, not providing automatic visas to personnel in European consuls-general in Jerusalem and ending the approval of the mandate of the Temporary International Presence in Hebron." j post

      Maybe she should tell all of Israel,s Jews to boycott the EU. Atta girl Caroline , you show those EU citizens you dont need them importing that 13 billion annually from Israel. Give em hell Glick.

  • 'Allahu Akbar': A Muslim family in suburban New Jersey responds to the Paris attacks
    • Check out ,

      Hypothetical case.

      Jewish man trips over obstacle , apparently left in error by city workers.The "victim " is suing the city and is claiming a city worker left the obstacle there deliberately because he knew the Jewish guy walks that route every day , (as do hundreds of others) and wanted to harm him.Clearly this was an act of antisemitism .

      Sure, what else could it be.

      Paranoia on steroids.

      Btw , the Judge , who has an Arab background dismissed the case.Clearly another act of antisemitism.

  • Israeli troops detain and interrogate 6-year-old Palestinian boy in Bethlehem
    • "Either be peaceful. Elect leaders who aren’t thieves, liars and murderers.
      OR LEAVE" Irrational zionist.

      This is MW , not Y,Net or Jpost .

      Profile , "Devoted Zionist who can see both sides of and issue." Rational Zionist

      I see how it works.You see both sides of "and " issue instructions to leave.

      Rational and Zionist are a contradiction in terms.

      Seeing both sides of an issue requires intellect and honesty.

      Fools like you have neither.

    • "Well, I’m in no position to know but I’m pretty sure his “lack of a criminal” record probably has more to do with getting away with stuff rather than a clean record." ABC

      Probably more to do with being a Jewish Israeli .They are beacons of light and defenders against terroreesm and are saving the rest of us ungrateful goys.How could that be criminal.

    • "The judge took into consideration mitigating circumstances such as the policeman’s lack of a criminal record, positive character references and the fact that the policeman lost his job after the incident. "

      Let,s see.

      A, Criminal record for an idfer/policeman.

      1,---Caught "on camera", abusing or shooting Palestinians.

      2, Refusing to carry out war crimes and speaking out about same.

      3, Missing any opportunity to solve the demographic problem.


      Positive character, ??.

      1, Hates all Arabs and thinks they should be made extinct.

      2, Enjoys demolishing Palestinian homes .

      3, Views all Arabs as vermin.

      C, Lost his job after the incident.

      Surely that was enough punishment for this fine example of humanity.Obviously a case of antisemitism.

      Perhaps , if the 6 weeks community service had been in Gaza , it would be credible and produce some level of contrition and a change in his behaviour.

    • "As we know West Bank Palestinians are lucky if they can come up with a kitchen knife" Kate

      Kate , no need to bring a knife.That comes compliments of the IDF. You see , the idf thinks of everything.

    • This what the brave heroic soldiers of the most moral army , face everyday.They put their precious (more precious than any non Jew) on the line everyday defending Israel against terrorists like the one in the photo.That soldier took on this terrorist alone.

      The bravery of these soldiers knows "no bounderies".

    • Bumlebye, as you said,it was a Scottish National Party senior member.The SNP is the third largest party in the British Isles and given that the Labour Paty is now led by a very pro Palestinian leader , watch for some blowback against Israel in the coming months in the parliament.They collectively make up a lot of voices in the opposition.

      Israel just continues shooting itself in both feet and it is fun to watch.I love a little cabaret and Israel never fails to entertain with it,s slapstick antics.

    • " Well I hope the irish PM suitably carpeted israel’s ambassador to Ireland for booting out one of your politicians a week or so ago. Iirc he was barred for 10 years.

      Payback/karma’s a b!tch! " Bumblebye.

      I could find (under pressure of time) no record of that when I heard.Do you recall when or who.

    • Oh damn , Israel is going to make Ireland , "pay a price " for backing the labeling of contriband from the illegal squats.Ooooh , shiver me timbers.

      Ireland,s ambassador to Israel to get the "low chair treatment " and worse.

      " Israel will reportedly summon Irish Ambassador Alison Kelly to its foreign ministry in Jerusalem for a reprimand over Ireland’s support for EU labeling of goods from the West Bank.

      "The Yediot Aharonot newspaper says the ambassador will be told that meetings she plans for herself or visiting Irish officials will be restricted to low-tier diplomats.

      This is part of Israel’s diplomatic response to last week’s European Union decision to label Israeli goods made beyond the 1967 Green Line border. Measures are to be taken against all 16 EU member states, including Ireland, which urged the EU to adopt labelling".

      Nothing like kicking people in the teeth to get them on your side.

    • Hmmmm , arrest warrants in Spain and South Africa and cultural boycotts growing and EU labeling of contraband from the illegal squats and ICJ re opening war crimes investigation in the Mavi Mara criminal attack and etc etc.

      Life is getting tougher and tougher for the zioniists and it is going to get worse as netanyau and co insult every leader who dares to tell the truth about Israel Many of these leaders have been covering his posterior for decades and he accuses them of manufacturing a new Holocaust and being nazis and Jew Haters.

  • West's war against terrorism is Israel's war, Chuck Schumer says
    • Well , schumer is right.It is Israel,s war and they keep fanning the flames and stoking the fire .

      Maybe schumer and co would do better if they put the brakes on the rogue nation by ordering them to cease their attacks on their neighbours. As a European, I resent seeing my neighbourhood used as a target when it is Israel that ferments most of the hatred/revenge attacks coming from the ISIS gang.

    • why would anyone operating with the benefit of an intellect condemn attacks against a nation that has been attacking it,s neighbours since 1948 .They have been doing so for far longer but not as a state before 1948.

      Let,s be honest about what Israel calls attacks.For instance , shooting their most moral army members is "terrrroreesm" as is defending oneself against armed illegal squatter thugs carrying out so called "price tag " terrorist crimes.T

      Would someone stop the world and kick this whining zionist war criminal off. Let him go and create his racist , bigoted rogue entity at the other side of the universe.Maybe he can enlist fellow ass-tronauts from the hasbara brigade that frequent this site with their zionist celestial fantasies. They can use their limitless supply of ziopoop to create sufficient fuel to get far away from all that antisemitism and live in peace and security and total isolation

  • The American colonization of Palestine
    • The question is , what is the endgame ??. What comes after the so called greater Israel has been achieved. It will still be surrounded by "A sea of Arabs " and it,s borders will be larger and more difficult to defend.Who is next on the list.Jordan, Syria , Lebanon ???. Which one of those states will become a new testing ground for untested weapons.Do those in the US defence industry view these states as future sources of profit.Israel no doubt will continue stirring up trouble by applying the same hit and run attacks , (they use in Palestine ) until the natives get tired of the oppression and resist at which point the usual zionist claims of victim hood become standard fare on global media and Israel claims it has to enlarge it,s territory to ensure it,s "security". Even with the continued level of support the US gives Israel , this expansionist policy will not be viable. There will be an increase in attacks on EU cities and EU citizens will resent being fodder as a result of Israel/US expansionist policies

      Personally , I do not think these war mongers believe this can continue ad infinitum but seek to reap the benefits as long as the going is good.I believe they will dump Israel like a hot potato as soon as it becomes clear, that Israel cannot takeover the whole Middle East and survive.

    • Dan Rabinowitz accuses BDS of wanting to , "Demonize and De legitimize Israel out of existence. Here are his own words.

      "Hansen rightly notes that sanctions were essential in bringing down the Apartehid regime in SA, but greatly overrates the role of the academic boycott in that struggle. It was governments applying economic sanctions, not academics ostrecizing others, that made the change. This oversight perhaps explains Hansen’s misrecognition of the true nature of PACBY and its supporters, including anthropologists. One type of boycott (call it type A) sets clear, realistic benchmarks for the boycotted entity to reach, stipulating that once they are met the boycott will be terminated. The second type of boycott (call it type B) strives to terminate the very existence of the boycotted entity. Deep down PACBY is type B: it seeks to boycott Israeli moderates, including academics, as part of a concerted effort to essentialize, demonize and deligitimize Israel out of existence. Its public face, meanwhile, is a clumsy attempt to pass as type A. Weingrod and Rosen successfully highlight some of the more embarrassing contradictions that stem from this duplicity."

      Sounds to me like , the Professor is attempting to de legitimize BDS out of existence and leave Apartheid Israel to do as it will. Doesn,t sound like a person , the Late Edward Said would consider a close friend .Reminds me of , "Keep you friends close but keep your enemies even closer.

      “The point it, and this is something which I don’t know how to communicate effectively to the Israeli public, but I will try,” said Indyk, raising his voice for emphasis: “You are not victims. You are not. You have built a beautiful country which is incredibly strong…with the backing of the most powerful country in the world. You are not victims anymore. You are players in your own fate.”

      “To allow your leaders to convince you that you are victims and have to live by the sword – is to give way to hopeless future for your people,” charged the veteran diplomat.

    • ritzl , "You all do this every time."

      Not so. I checked back some 3 weeks in my archives and found only one reference to Occupied territories but in my defence , I wrote , "Occupied Palestinian Territories" .

      I recall , your last mention of this and have tried to concur.Recall , I told you how long it took to replace the old zionist claim of "disputed territories" with Occupied territories and those of us who observed the , (mostly) disappearance of that term viewed it as a victory.

      But I will now replace Occupied Palestinian Territories with , "Occupied Palestine".

      Okey , dokey.

    • It would appear that the EU officials are tired of being called Jew haters and planning another Holocaust by people who are committing war crimes on an hourly basis.They are probably also fed up being called on the zionist carpet and lectured by these same war criminals so it is time for a little push back.

      We will see just how little concept of the art of diplomacy exists in the ziosphere as they ramp up the insults and vitriol .

      "As it will be demonstrated below, the decision by the Zionist leadership to accept the 1947 proposed UN GA Partition plan was nothing but a smoke screen, which was done solely to gain international recognition and support. This deception was a political ploy to gain initial international legitimacy for the existence of the "Jewish state", and this was well known to the Palestinian people. The reader is urged to contemplate the following Zionist leaders' quotes in an open mind. Note that most, if not all, of the quotes below are dated before the entry of any single Arab Army into British Mandated Palestine: * In a letter Chaim Weizmann sent to the Palestine-British high Commissioner, while the Peel Commission was convening in 1937, he stated: "We shall spread in the whole country in the course of time ..... this is only an arrangement for the next 25 to 30 years." (Expulsion Of The Palestinians, p. 66) * Ben-Gurion emphasized that the acceptance of the Peel Commission would not imply static borders for the future "Jewish state". In a letter Ben-Gurion sent to his son in 1937, he wrote: "No Zionist can forgo the smallest portion of the Land Of Israel. [A] Jewish state in part [of Palestine] is not an end, but a beginning ..... Our possession is important not only for itself ... through this we increase our power, and every increase in power facilitates getting hold of the country in its entirety. Establishing a [small] state .... will serve as a very potent lever in our historical effort to redeem the whole country." (Righteous Victims, p. 138) * In 1938, Ben-Gurion made it clear of his support for the "Jewish state" on part of Palestine was only as a stepping ground for a complete conquest. He wrote: "[I am] satisfied with part of the country, but on the basis of the assumption that after we build up a strong force following the establishment of the state--we will abolish the partition of the country and we will expand to the whole Land of Israel." (Expulsion Of The Palestinians, p. 107 & One Palestine Complete, p. 403) * One day after the UN vote to partition Palestine, Menachem Begin, the commander of the Irgun gang and Israel's future Prime Minister between 1977-1983, proclaimed: "The Partition of Palestine is illegal. It will never be recognized .... Jerusalem was and will for ever be our capital. Eretz Israel will be restored to the people of Israel. All of it. And for Ever." (Iron Wall p. 25) * ""Shamir has said Israel must keep the territories in order to accommodate the immigrants. "A great aliyah [immigration]," he said, "requires a Greater Israel."(5) He has insisted that, although Soviet Jews are not being directed to the territories, any Jew has the right to live anywhere in the land of Israel, which for most Israelis includes the territories."

      Here is just a small sampling that illustrates just how, the more things change the more they stay the same.

      "On 29 September, the day after Ariel Sharon, guarded by about a thousand Israeli police and soldiers strode into Jerusalem’s Haram al-Sharif (the ‘Noble Sanctuary’) in a gesture designed to assert his right as an Israeli to visit the Muslim holy place, a conflagration started which continues as I write in late November. Sharon himself is unrepentant, blaming the Palestinian Authority for ‘deliberate incitement’ against Israel ‘as a strong democracy’ whose ‘Jewish and democratic character’ the Palestinians wish to change. He went to Haram al-Sharif, he wrote in the Wall Street Journal a few days later, ‘to inspect and ascertain that freedom of worship and free access to the Temple Mount is granted to everyone’, but he didn’t mention his huge armed entourage or the fact that the area was sealed off before, during and after his visit, which scarcely ensures freedom of access. He also neglected to say anything about the consequence of his visit: on the 29th, the Israeli Army shot eight Palestinians dead. What everyone ignored, moreover, is that the natives of a place under military occupation – which East Jerusalem has been since it was annexed by Israel in 1967 – are entitled by international law to resist by any means possible. Besides, two of the oldest and greatest Muslim shrines in the world, dating back a millennium and a half, are supposed by archaeologists to have been built on the site of the Temple Mount – a convergence of religious topoi that a provocative visit by an extremist Israeli general was never going to help to sort out. A general, it’s as well to recall, who had played a role in a number of atrocities dating back to the 1950s, and including Sabra, Shatila, Qibya and Gaza.

      “We are in touch with the municipality of Munich in order to prevent this event from happening,” diplomat Dan Shaham wrote to The Jerusalem Post on Friday. “We are awaiting their decision.”

      Reiter’s press spokesman, Stefan Hauf, wrote the Post: “The mayor made a call to General-Consul Dan Shaham and argued that he does not have a basis to cancel the event. According to the cultural representative, the event is merely a lecture, and a call to boycott is not planned.”

      "The International Criminal Court’s top body late Friday kept the 2010 Mavi Marmara flotilla war crimes allegations against Israeli commandos and war-policy- making officials alive, ruling that ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda must delve deeper into the case before she closes it.

      The ruling prolonged internal drama and disagreement among the ICC’s own bodies over whether to dive further into the Israeli-Arab conflict than it ever has before, which would bring Israeli soldiers closer to the real possibility of war crimes trials.

      There is disagreement over the issue even within the ICC Appeals Chamber, the institution’s top body. Friday’s vote saw a razor thin 3-2 majority voting against Bensouda’s appeal to keep the case closed. In an earlier lower court ruling by the ICC Pretrial Chamber, the vote had also been split 2-1, ruling against Bensouda over how to handle the flotilla raid.

      In November 2014, Bensouda closed the file, saying that while the IDF’s conduct in the incident seemed to her to display elements of war crimes, the 10 activists killed by the Israel Navy commandos simply did not constitute a high enough body count to warrant her involvement, since she focuses on mass killings".

      The bombshell was dropped by Obama’s senior adviser on the Middle East, Robert Malley. He stated that a new reality has been created in which not only is there no chance of reaching an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement but that even the possibility of renewing negotiations between the parties seems very slim.

      That has been , is and will continue to be the zionist plan until someone steps in and forces Israel to end it,s decades long criminal actions.

      Will EU officials tire of being given the finger by people like Michael Oren who has the audacity to tell Israelis to boycott EU products while mouthing accusations of antisemitism against anyone who supports labeling illegal products from the occupied territories that make their way to the shelves of EU shops .

      Will they have the courage to tell Israel that enough is enough and cut off trade agreements with Israel and tell EU importers to cut their ties with Israel.e.Will they show Israel that they need the EU (450 million people) far more than the EU needs a market of 7.5 million .

      That Netanyahu thinks he can achieve his fascist goals tells me he is disconnected from reality. Will he be judged as crazy in the long run.Who knows.Maybe we will see the addition of a new word/term to the English language .

      “There is no danger here to the Israeli economy, which is growing stronger. If anything, what you are hurting is the livelihoods of over 10,000 Palestinians,” Ms Hotovely said.

      Israel fears the move will pave the way for a wider boycott of all Israeli products, as demanded by the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, but EU officials said the labelling initiative was a technicality and not the first stage of a boycott.

      “Goods from the settlements cannot be labelled as ‘Made in Israel’,” said EU ambassador to Israel Lars Faaborg-Andersen. “The European Union views this as simply factually incorrect. It is important for us to have the source of the goods specified. The EU foreign ministers demand that this be done, and we are enforcing the regulations.”

      Ms Hotovely rejected the argument of the right of the European consumer to know exactly where goods are manufactured, claiming Israel was being singled out."
