  • Two Palestinian teenagers killed by Israeli forces in West Bank clashes
    • I wonder if the Israeli Gov checks Kate,s reports to find out what they have been up to.It is not as if they care who knows.

      Thanks Kate for your tireless efforts to keep people aware of the extent of zionist crimes.

  • Jerusalem at a breaking point
    • My point was not directed specifically at you Annie but that conversation did come to mind.

      what,s so frustrating , is that there are so many people out there still buying this crap about a 2SS.They must be blind or brain dead.How much evidence do they need.What is even more enraging is the lack of balance practiced by intl MSM.The Irish Times and Radio/TV Ireland have been reporting the deaths of the 4 Israeli Jews but not one word about the many many Palestinians murdered by Israel and that includes the Palestinian Girl shot in cold blood by those fiends.

      Sometimes it is truly hard to bear.What must it be like for the victims to spend day after day , and to recall your post the other day, "Year after year" enduring what they have to.

      I,m off to bed to try to sleep.

    • "that is the kind of random, unorganised violence that Israel needs to sustain itself and keep alive the cycle of massive retaliations that it believes will ultimately rid it of the Palestinians altogether. - See more at: link to"

      Exactly what I have been saying for more than ten years. Ok , I am slow on the uptake .

  • Hey Jews, listen up, Netanyahu is your leader!
  • Video of 18-year-old Palestinian chased by Jewish mob and killed by police shocks global audience
    • "I suppose we’ll be seeing photos of the knife soon. - See more at: link to"italian pat

      i bet it will be blue and yellow , just like the one planted by the Palestinian girl shot in cold blood last week.

      I am not sure what the IDF part number is but it is most likely a standard part of a soldiers emergency crime scene kit.

    • One thing for sure , if Netnayaoo wants an intifada and I believe he does , then he is going just the right way to get one.He knows that all the fear mongering ,hatred and lies , he and his criminal fellow knesset members have been feeding Israel,s Jews and racist right wing fascists , in addition to intrusions into Muslim holy places will invoke a response and consequently incite a Jewish Israeli response such as we see here.

      Do these people really believe they can continue on this path of criminal actions ad infinitum with impunity.Clearly they have no knowledge of the outcome the SA Apartheid gang experienced.I just bet , that subject is not a topic for discussion in Jewish Israeli schools.

  • In 'NYT' coverage of violence, only Israeli Jewish victims count (Updated)
    • Those of us who have been watching this for years , recognise that this latest outbreak of violence is just another re-run of past events , where Israel relentlessly attacks Palestinians , on the streets, in their homes , at their places of work, in or on their way to school etc etc.This is Israel,s method of creating a so called violent response which then allows Israel to claim that the Palestinians started the whole business.This method works , thanks to the MSM in many countries who only report violence against Jews , who will be portrayed as ordinary folks going about their business and as helpless victims pf Palestinian terrorism.There will be no mention of them being illegal gun toting squatters , many of whom are involved in committing crimes against Palestinians.There will be no mention of the fact that some are off duty idf thugs who have probably murdered their fair share of Palestinians. There will be no mention of the the fact that these people are land thieves living on stolen land in Jews only squats and driving on Jews only roads.

      It is absolutely disgraceful that Israel gets away with these crimes and has been doing so for decades.When the f--k is someone in the intl community going to stand up to these criminals and put an end to zionism before it will be the cause of WW 3 .Zionism is not worth the life of one innocent human .

  • 'Third intifada was launched,' Palestinian law student posted before carrying out fatal attack in Jerusalem
    • "I thought they were the descendants of those who were not massacred in the Holocaust. - See more at: link to" RoHa .

      Sorry, teach.I will try to do better.

      Speaking of massacres , did you have to treat your fellow commonwealth people so harshly in the RWC .Poor mother England , kicked out of their own tournament by one of the colonies.

    • And these people are the descendants of those massacred in the Holocaust.Those who bequeathed the concept of " Never Again".

    • "Whether or not present-day Jews are biological descendants of the ancient Jews is a fascinating topic… especially if you’re a racist, concerned with “bloodlines” and “racial purity”.
      Seriously, what difference does it make? Are today’s Greeks descended from the ancient Greeks? Are the French descended from the Gauls? Are the British pure-bred Angles and Saxons? Of course not. Throughout history people (including the Jews) have migrated, inter-married, converted…but that doesn’t mean that they don’t take pride in what they consider to be their national history and heritage. What counts is a people’s consciousness , their historical memory. The perception of Israel as the Jew’s ancestral homeland is not something that can be erased by trying to follow “bloodlines” back through history - See more at: link to" Jon S

      The problem with your narrative is that it fails the test of common sense.None of those nations you listed would require a Jew to change their religion in exchange for citizenship and nor should they.You speak of peoples memory being an integral part of their Jewishness.How does that apply to a new convert to Judaism who immediately becomes entitled to Israeli citizenship.How old is that persons memory or connection to their so called "Historical Homeland" .Do I as a Catholic have the right to claim Rome as my historical Homeland. Does a new convert to catholicism have that right.

      Your welcome to come and live in Ireland and eventually be given citizenship while maintaining your religious preference.In fact you will no be asked what your religion is.If you are a third generation American citizen and either one of your parents or grandparents, ( any earlier relationship is nit acceptable) came from Ireland then you can claim citizenship.Call that bloodlines if you wish but it is not racist.What is racist is , that Jews who have zero connection to Israel except their religious one can gain citizenship but Palestinians who were forced at gunpoint out of their homeland are forbidden to return in contravention of all international laws .That is pure racism and no amount of mental gymnastics on your part will make it otherwise.

      If as you claim you are in favour of solving the Palestinian problem , why don,t you scoot on over to J post or Ynet news and address some of the racist bigots there and convince them they are wrong.Best of luck with that but you already know that , don,t you.

      Quite honestly , reading your anemic excuses/ self serving constructs is tiresome and tedious and makes you look rather pathetic.

  • 'NYT' reporters parrot Israeli claims re cherry tomato
    • "You Irishers won the BIG one. One of your guys bagged a Nobel Prize. - See more at: link to" Froggy

      Jeez , don,t broadcast that too loud or the Israelis will be calling in the Irish Amb to Israel for a good dress down , for stealing their " Nobels". We Irish are only allowed to win Nobel Peace prizes as Israel has no interest in such time wasting nonsense.However , if there was a Nobel for conducting "Peace Processes" than Israel would top the list.

      In the spirit of good sportsmanship , best of luck this weekend.Normally , I would say , may the best team win but not in this case.

    • "(Have I mentioned that we live on a working farm and a cidrerie? Of course, our major crop is apples, though my teenage sons have added additional fruit trees in anticipation of diversifying the cidre. - See more at: link to". froggy.

      Better save some of that " scrumpy " for next weekend .I will be uncorking bottles of Guinness , (and no , the Israelis did not invent that , no matter what they claim) as we celebrate , (hopefully ) a win over the the French.Nothing personal , just business.I know most brits are in shock at the moment and we send our condolences and regrets.That is to say , we would have welcomed the opportunity to do what the "Wallabies " did. Viva la Irlande.

      Thanks for the run down on the Olive tree and yes , zionist,s uprooting olive trees to replace them with pine trees is indeed obscene not to mention an insult to mother earth.

    • "That said, I never found cherry tomatoes ‘delicious’. I prefer large, meaty tomatoes, preferably heirloom varieties. - See more at: link to" Froggy.

      As a long time avid gardener I grow several types of tomatoes in a 25 x 12 foot tunnel . These range from beefsteak to cherry tomatoes.My favorite is known as , black Russian aka chocolate cherry.These are the sweetest toms I have ever grown and when picked at the peak of ripeness are in my opinion unrivaled .

      I also grow a variey of beefsteak , known as marmande (a spanish variety) which are also unrivaled for taste and meatiness.Needless to say , home grown tomatoes are without question far far better than those tasteless anemic looking toms found on supermarket shelves.

      While tomatoes have minimal food value , any salad looks incomplete without a tomato included.

      Americans say tomay-to , we say tomato.

    • I believe there are 1000 troops in a battalion so add that to those murderous killers all ready roaming around the West Bank and Israel will commit a lot of crimes in the next few days,They will find the so called shooter but it may not be the one who did it.Some poor Palestinian kid will be executed and then named the killer.Hundreds will be arrested and dozens of home will be assaulted and their occupants terrorized .Their rooms will be used as toilets for the most moral army to leave it,s vile excrement behind as a message..Money and equipment will be stolen etc etc.

      This the Israel that netanyahu claims everyone lies about and wants to delegitimise .Your damn right netanyahu.We want to put "your" Israel out of business.

    • Meanwhile two Jews have been shot in the west bank and the IDF is out in force looking for the perpetrators.They are still however stil looking for the killers who burned a families home and killed the parents and a baby boy.No four battallions out looking for those perpetrators.

      The IRA were not the only ones carrying out terrible acts of terrorism.The Unionists carried out terrible acts (bombings) on the mainland of the Republic of Ireland , no doubt funded by their supporters in the USA.Balance is important , otherwise people might assume there was only one trouble maker in the NI conflict much the same as "Hamas " is seen as the only trouble maker in the I/P conflict and Israel gets a pass .

      Google UVF/UDR bombings.

      Thanks for your response, by the way.

    • To understand correctly , the depth of racism/bigotry and support for zionist terrorism , one only has to check the comments section on J Post or Y net, news .

      It is right there everyday in it,s raw indifference to the laws that keep decent folks safe and the chance at a normal life .

      Zionism has bred this Jewish terrorism and it continues to grow like a cancer.Zionism has to be defeated , that is to say , destroyed completely and it,s remains buried in lime .It can never be allowed to re emerge .No headstone or plaque.

      But are there enough brave members of the tribe to take up the challenge and risk their lives fighting Jewish terrorists.

  • For the 'New York Times,' #PalestinianLivesDoNotMatter
    • The NYT is a tool of zionism and zionism is the scourge of this planet.Some day and it is not a matter of if but when, zionism is seen for what it really is , then all those who aided and abetted it,s crimes will have to answer for their actions .The Jodi rudorens of this world will be justifiably shunned and booted from the fraternity of decent journalism.They can then write books accusing those who defended human rights of destroying the one and only Jewish state.They will never admit guilt but they will know, we know , that they helped to put an end forever, to the so called "Jewish state".

    • Agree eljay . after blowing up both images , I can see what appears to be a second barrel that is difficult to see as it is obscured by the victim.

      However , that raises a question.She would have fallen backwards from the force of the bullet , which she did and the knife seems to be quite a distance forward from where she was standing.If she voluntarily dropped the knife why was she shot.

    • You are right.Look at the bottle of water in the second image .It is no longer sitting atop the barrel .Also in the second image there is a stanchion just two feet from the barrel , whereas in the first image that is not to be seen.Only the soldier and he is three feet to the right of the barrel and there is no object between him and the barrel.

      Something very strange.I wonder if one of the squatters is minus a knife.

      Only problem is the IDF will label it as "Literary " terrorism.Besides they will claim they thought it was stones or rocks so they shot to save their lives that were in extreme danger.As I have said here before, this wanton killing is part of Israel,s plan to keep the Palestinians resisting so they can continue claiming the myth of victim hood.

    • Of course , illegal squatters are not covered by this law.They can just continue as usual doing as they please.Hell , even members of the most moral army are targets but their behaviour is passed off as actions that are the result of the difficult life they live in Occupied Palestine.We get it , being the Human shields for the greater Israel project is mentally draining and can drive one temporarily mad.Palestinians are given no such consideration even though they have endured decades of zionist oppression and abuse.Those poor Israeli Jews , just aren,t made like they used to be.

      "What is now forgotten is Wilson's staunch Zionism - an unfashionable trait today among the Labour left from whose ranks he originally hailed. And Wilson's commitment to Israel was intimately connected to his socialism. As his political secretary, Baroness Falkender, later explained: "Wilson admired Israel's determined development as a socialist state."Alongside his hero, Aneurin Bevan, and perhaps his two closest political allies, Richard Crossman and Barbara Castle, the future prime minister formed close relationships during the 1950s with a number of young Israelis who were later to become leading politicians: Yigal Allon, Chaim Herzog, and Teddy Kollek. For Wilson, these young men were "social democrats who made the desert flower".

    • Would someone please inform that zioniist rag sheet that anti zionism is not anti antisemitism.

      It is zioniists who planned and carried out the Nakba and continue to steal Palestinians land and murder them in the thousands , to mention just two of their crimes . So it is perfectly normal to condemn zionist israel actions.To not condemn them would be abnormal. Well at least for normal humans who possess the ability to discern the difference between right and wrong.

And what about the senseless giving away of Palestinian lives.Your,e ok with that , eh.Did you consult with all Palestinians , diaspora included.

      You sound just like some of the zionists posters here.You want to cherry pick UNSCR,s and refuse to compromise.The problems in Northern Ireland would never have been resolved and I am not suggesting it is a haven of peace there , had it been up to people like you.Don,t get me wrong , I hate Israel and all it stands for but the problem will only be resolved by non voilent resistance , such as BDS and denying the zionists the ability to claim victimhood.

      The Irish Times has apparently chosen to champion the Palestinian cause and to promote that side's narrative of the Arab-Israeli conflict. However, this advocacy is not limited to Irish Times editorial and opinion pages — where columns condemning Israel outnumber supportive columns by a ratio of 3:1. It extends to the news pages as well, with articles that serve as a platform for unchallenged, anti-Israel allegations. This directly contravenes Chief Editor Kennedy's own stated guideline to "eliminate any trace of partisanship" from news reporting. " camera.

  • Israeli defense minister says government knows who was behind Duma attack, but won't prosecute
    • The zionist goal is and has always been to create the so called greater Israel.This is not conjecture.Until very recently , such claims were restricted to what were perceived as, far right radical zioniist wackos.That has changed since Israel,s Jews have moved ever closer the outer fringes of the right and their leaders in ever larger numbers are expressing openly their commitment to achieving this goal. We read their statements everyday on a variety of media.

      The illegal squatter community are the vanguard , ( imo human shields) in this goal and will be protected at any cost.They take their cues from Hq in TA and in return for operational success, they are given military protection and financial support .Whoever did this is being protected by Israel,s leaders whose short and curl,y,s are firmly in the grip of the illegal squatters.They both know who is in control.Netandyahu does not want to end up like Rabin so he does what he is told.

      The upside to this , is that it will bring the house down on their collective heads.

      Mayor Nissan Ben Hamo, asked why the lights were turned off despite his promises to the city’s youth to keep them on, replied in a video clip: “We tried a pilot at several fields. To my great regret, it wasn’t our young people who came to the fields, and therefore, we decided we’d turn on the lights only upon request.”

      The young people who did come, locals said, were residents of nearby Bedouin villages and other outsiders. Ben Hamo also said that Arad residents had complained about the lights and the noise. "
