  • Family of Mohammed Abu Khdeir continues to wait for justice as Israeli court again postpones trial for his killers
    • Anyone notice a resemblance to Charlie Manson.Look at the evil in that killers eyes.

      He is not insane.He is just pure evil.May he never see the outside of a cell again.

    • As European countries are taking votes on whether there should be a Palestinian state, Israel does not want the details of this heinous crime leaking into the media .Might make the so called light unto the nations and eternal victim claims seem a bit thin.

      By the way, did anyone bulldoze their families homes yet.That,s the law there, right.

      "The American rock band The Beach Boys have canceled their planned Tel Aviv concert, which was scheduled to take place on November 29 in the Nokia Stadium.

      Pre-purchased tickets will be refunded.

      The show would have been the band's first in Israel, and would have capped off a tour stopping at France, Denmark, Norway and Hungary. The tour lineup consists of two bandmembers from the 1960s - Mike Love and Bruce Johnston - and five other musicians.

      As of Tuesday, no reason for the cancelation was provided on the band's website. " Haaretz

    • "Stopping the children throwing stones would leave the IDF with no excuse at all for arresting children, and the hasbarists with no basis for their claim that Palestinians are teaching their children to hate. " walktallhangloose.

      The IDF don,t need an excuse.They will claim that the children threw stones whether or not they did.

      It is the zionist way of ensuring that they can claim to be the eternal victim and then get on with their brutal behaviour.This is what they do.No illegal settler kids are arrested or harmed in any way.Often the IDF stand idly by and do absolutely nothing until they are ready to arrest the Palestinians who were the targets in the first place.

    • "amigo- I wonder if it would be really so difficult to write without the taunt "Yonah F. See more at: link to

      I would have no problem writing without the taunt when you quit trying to appear like a humanist who cares about Palestinians.


      " finding the means to allow gaza to thrive without giving gazans the means to lob rockets at the Israelis, is a tricky business. although those of you who favor handing the airports and the harbors over to Hamas do not find anything complicated in the situation, I am satisfied to have the IDF controlling the airports and the harbors and thus it is more complicated than the “leave the middle east” prescription of you antizionists. YF

      Gazans!!!(Palestinians), lob rockets at Israel because Israel has been murdering fishermen and farmers and whosoever they choose for years.That is why Israel gets rockets lobbed in their general direction.It is the IDF you wish to leave in charge that creates these problems.

      Stop scratching the surface Yonah and maybe you will realise just who is at fault and drop the Liberal zionist facade.

      As to taunting , how anout this???.

    • Hail to the most moral army.The brave patriots and defenders of the only democracy in the middle East and light unto the nations of the world and the chosen ones.

      These f----s do not understand the concept of proportionality.It is my view that they are under orders to create as may Palestinian enemies as possible and I believe that comes right from the very top.

      I so look forward to the day when even one of these sickos ends up in chains at the Hague.We can make sure a cheering party is there to greet him / her at all times.

    • Gee, I wonder if "Yonah, (Israel deserves to defend it,s 67 borders), Fredman" will defend this garbage.

      Maybe you will tell us this is the kind of world you live in so it,s not your fault.You don,t control Israeli history , past or present, so better to just go along with it and this type of inhuman barbarity.Screw the future eh Yonah.

  • NYT takes on Europe's recognition of a Palestinian state
    • From the ICJ advisory opinion 2004 by Justice Khasawneh.

      10. There is no doubt that the Green Line was initially no more than
      an armistice line in an agreement that expressly stipulated that its provisions
      would not be "interpreted as prejudicing, in any sense, an ultimate
      political settlement between the Parties" and that "the Armistice Demarcation
      Lines defined in articles V and VI of [the] Agreement [were] agreed
      upon by the Parties without prejudice to future territorial settlements or
      boundary lines or to claims of either Party relating thereto" (Advisory
      Opinion, para. 72).
      11. It is not without irony that prominent Israeli jurists were arguing
      before the 1967 war that the General Armistice agreements were sui
      generis, were in fact more than mere armistice agreements, could not be
      changed except with the acceptance of the Security Council. Whatever
      the true significance of that line today, two facts are indisputable:
      (1) The Green line, to quote Sir Arthur Watts, "is the starting line from
      which is measured the extent of Israel's occupation of non-Israeli
      territory" (CR200413, p. 64, para. 35). There is no implication that
      the Green Line is to be a permanent frontier.
      (2) Attempts at denigrating the significance of the Green Line would in
      the nature of things work both ways. Israel cannot shed doubts upon
      the title of others without expecting its own title and the territorial
      expanse of that title beyond the partition resolution not to be called
      into question. Ultimately it is through stabilizing its legal relationship
      with the Palestinians and not through constructing walls that its
      security would be assured."Justice Khasawneh

      Israel has no legitimate claim beyond it,s self declared Borders.As the ICJ,s decision shows , Israel , prior to 67 , was arguing in favour of their self declared orders and demanding that any change to those borders be approved by the UNSC.The Palestinians should be negotiating based on the 48 Borders , then the conversation can be about just how much land Israel has already stolen .

      You legal eagles feel free to correct me if I am wrong,

      Imagine saying that in a Western country.

      Yeah , and his defence will be that living with the occupation whereby Palestinian terrorists can at anytime attack him or blow him up , blah blah and this is mentally distressing causing him to commit, "uncharacteristic acts.When he first moved in to his new home , he was an ordinary nice friendly guy.

      I finally got it, torturing Palestinian Children does not increase antisemitism but reporting it does.Not one of these so called Christians condemned Israel,s behaviour.

      God help zionists and those who follow like sheep, they are all loonies.

    • ‘When you criticize Israel, you are probably criticizing Jews, there’s no getting around it" Mooser.

      I did not know that.And all this time I thought I was only critising Israel,s cruel treatment of the Palestinian People.

      But what do I know.I am from a country who has never made war on it,s neighbours so I lack the understanding of a supremacist overlord.They obviously have a built in defence mechanism to deal with interfering left wing radical liberals like meself. I used to hate England and it,s policies towards Ireland but not all English people. Did that make me a antiprostestantite.

  • Does 'the thief of Jerusalem' deserve US aid? (Update)
    • "hops, i’d urge you (and everyone) to open the survey link and check out the results for the different demographics. i’ve spent a long time on that link and it’s very interesting. the implications are stunning " Annie.

      Don,t you understand , that only polls that support Israel are credible.Anything else is just made up or fixed or non scientific.Only Zionist polls ask the right questions .This is typical zionist self delusion.If for instance , the BBC publishes an article that condemns Israeli behaviour then BBC is anti zionist and clearly run by Jew haters.If they write an article that is supportive of the Israeli position ,(does not happen very often --Israel provides very little basis for that.) then the BBC becomes "aware" and understands the facts.

      You have got to feel sorry for these folks.Brainwashing is a terrible crime of which they are the victims.

    • I wonder if it would be possible to produce a graph depicting condemnations of Israel,s policies by prominent Media both in the USA and Europe, say over the last 24 months.One thing is for sure, those condemnations are increasing exponentially since "Pinpoint " op , protective slaughter and are likely to increase in the coming months as more and more people lose their fear of being called Jew haters and antisemites.

      The jig is up for project Zion.As Aminadinnerjacket forecast, it is heading for the bin of history.

  • Europe wearies of Netanyahu's diversions
    • "Well, when it comes to the moment of truth Germany does not have too much of a choice – they know that it is not only Israel`s physical security at stake here but also theirs, even if mainly (but not only) in the psychological sense of it " ivri

      Do please elaborate.

      And ,if you are so concerned about Israel,s physical security , then start demanding that Israel end it,s colonialist shenanigans and civilises itself.

      You sound just like a bully happy to beat up those weaker but then whining when someone decks you and puts you in your place.

      Flat on your butt on the ground.

    • "Both are in need of a tune-up." Walid.

      I was responding to Yonah and all the other zio apologists who claim Israel is a democracy and ergo should not be subjected to complaints from other democracies.

      Israel does not need a tune up .It needs a new engine ,new brakes and a new driver.I do agree some Western democracies could use an oil change .

      Nice to see you back .

    • 2.
      a system or ordered way of doing things.
      "detention centres with a very tough physical regime"
      synonyms: system, arrangement, scheme, code;
      apparatus, mechanism;
      order, pattern, method, procedure, routine, policy, practice, course, plan, programme;
      diet, regimen
      "a favourable tax regime"
      a coordinated programme for the promotion or restoration of health; a regimen.
      "a low-calorie, low-fat regime"
      the conditions under which a scientific or industrial process occurs.

      At least two apply to Israel!!.

      Detention centres ( West Bank ) and diet as it applies to 1.8 million Gazans and of course Gaza is one big detention centre compliments of the Regime in Tel Aviv.

      Yup , definitely time for a Regime change and if the Zionists will not or can not then the International Community must step up to the plate and do it for them.But not through violence but BDS and any other peaceful resistance available to them.

      "I find it extraordinary how naïve or blind some Jewish Israelis are, and the author of this Ha’aretz editorial is no exception. Many, if not most Israeli Jews still believe, incredibly, that their country is a democracy like any other Western democracy, with real freedom of opinion and expression. "Avigail Abarbanel

      link to

      "Israel arose as a secular, social democratic country inspired by Western European democracies. With time, however, its core values have become entirely different. Israel today is a religious, capitalist state. Its religiosity is defined by the most extreme Orthodox interpretations. Its capitalism has erased much of the social solidarity of the past, with the exception of a few remaining vestiges of a welfare state. Israel defines itself as a “Jewish and democratic state.” However, because Israel has never created a system of checks and balances between these two sources of authority, they are closer than ever to a terrible clash.

    • Israel’s democracy is not up to the US standard of 2014 in many ways.)YF

      Israel is not a democracy. One would have to be quite stupid or brainwashed , (same disease really) to believe it is.

      Whats your excuse Yonah.

  • As Kerry scrambles to prevent Palestinian action at UN, Israeli govt makes clear it will never accept Palestinian state
    • This would be a perfect time for Hamas to renounce the part of their Charter that allegedly says they will drive Israel into the sea and kill all Jews.Make it public and then we can quit having to listen to zionist propaganda and turn attention to Israel Likud Charter.We should demand that Israel recognize a Palestinian State based on 67 borders with land swaps.

      Absent of a willingness to do that will be proof that Israel has never, will never be serious about allowing a State for the Palestinian People.

      Back the zionists against a wall as Palestinians go to the UN for recognition.

      I read today that Spain is next on the list to vote on a Palestinian State.One by one , the dominoes are falling.

      "oh i don’t believe that. especially in the WB they target children." Annie.

      Annie , you must have misinterpreted what I said.I meant that Israel doesn,t give a damn what age a Palestinian is.They shoot them because they,(Palestinians) are there and because they (Israelis) get away with it.

Now this also includes the mothers of the martyrs, who send them to hell with flowers and kisses. They should follow their sons, nothing would be more just. They should go, as should the physical homes in which they raised the snakes. Otherwise, more little snakes will be raised there."

    • This story was reported in the Irish times today.There has been a notable shift in the Irish times reporting of the Palestinian/Israeli turkey shoot.For years we were treated to one sided pro Israel crap as reported by Mark Weiss who it is thought is an illegal settler.However since Protective Slaughter , the other side of the story is now getting through.Haven,t heard from Mark Weiss for quite some time.Fingers crossed.This is progress.

      Now wait for the Israeli Embassy to whimper and whine about unbalanced reporting by the IT.This after years of pro Israel propaganda dished up by Zionists.

      I think you misjudge the Rabbi .

      He means Roger must be on drugs or is suffering the after effects if he cares about 500 "Arab " Children.Clearly that does not apply to his tribes babies.Not sure how he feels about non Jews in general but would be willing to go out on a limb on guessing the answer.

      Imagine having Religious teachers full of hatred and evil , laying the foundation for your life,s road.Poor, Jewish children don,t get much of a chance in life being subjected to that form of hatred and poisonous diatribe. They will turn out as clones of the Rabbi , God help them.

      Ireland takes another step in the right direction.Irish times recommends recognition of a Palestinian State.

      "Ireland, although among the EU states most supportive of the Palestinians, has traditionally been conservative about wielding the recognition card, whether to bestow or withdraw. In response to Dáil questions this week Minister for Foreign Affairs Charlie Flanagan echoed Fabius in linking recognition to assisting talks.

      But perhaps the time has come to go further. The most recent US-mediated talks collapsed in April and Israel, whose diplomats are frantically lobbying against recognition, needs to be told that it can not hold the issue hostage while continuing to prevaricate on engaging in meaningful dialogue. Recognition would not do anything to copperfasten Palestinian sovereignty, but it would send an important message to Israel that there will be a diplomatic price to pay. Ireland should join Sweden in doing so. " Irish times editorial.

      Jack straw did not program these people and they did not appear to me as sheep.Even Jack Straw seemed to have a new found aversion to Israel,s behaviour.Remember , he was a major player with tony poodle blair in the war in Iraq.Maybe he sees this as a way to atone for his past sins and get back in power in 2015.

      "How did they phrase their initial question to you?" citizen

      I guess it was along the lines of , "are you from Ireland". My accent , while not bog Irish , for want of a better term , would still have given that away quite readily to most reasonably well traveled people .

      I gathered from her accent she was an American , and was merely trying to find out which part .If she had said Los Angeles and added she was Jewish, that would have been more than I needed to know but I would have left it at that. I cannot imagine myself telling someone I am an Irish Catholic, or a Catholic from Ireland.If you see my point.

We discussed Ireland for a while and then I asked them where they were from .The female responded by telling me she is Jewish to which I responded , I did not ask what her religion is.I never did find out who the other person was as the female gave me a dirty look and whisked him away for "Greener" pastures .

  • Abbas calls on UN Security Council to end the occupation
  • Obama says Muslims bear responsibility to counter radical Islam (so are Jews responsible for Israeli violence?)
    • There is ISIS. There is Boko Haram. There is the Taliban. There are the Wahhabists of Saudi Arabia. There is the Janjaweed in Sudan. And many others. "hopknee

      Yep , all those bad eggs spread out over a large Area.OTOH , Israel keeps most of it,s bad eggs in one small basket.Much easier to change their behavior.Copious helpings of BDS and lashings of isolation and trade embargoes.

      Nope , no self healing for ziosville.They are going to need some outside help.

    • "This summer, Israel fought a war and anti-Semitism surged in Europe" Raphael Magarik

      I am not sure where all this surge in antisemitism in Europe is manifesting itself.

      Ireland is considered by certain individuals , to be rabidly antisemitic but here is what the leader of Ireland,s Jewish community , had to say on the matter.

      " The Republic’s Jewish population has experienced little or no hostility since the latest outbreak of violence in Gaza, the chairman of the Jewish Representative Council of Ireland, Maurice Cohen, has said in an interview with The Irish Times.

      “There have been a few emails and messages but not very many. There have never been any major incidents of anti-Semitism in Ireland. Yes, there were those slogans along the [Dublin] quays and on hoardings last year but those involved just foolish people. Such are isolated incidents.”

      Why so covertly --dropped your standards again ivri.

      BTW, Jews will be allowed through the normal immigration process to gain citizenship of Palestine , if and when Israel learns how to live with their neighbours and not continue stealing from them and killing them.

      For the moment , it is citizens of the occupier --Israel , (note Israeli Jews or Arab ) who have no legal right to be there.

    • Adele, dont you know you are not supposed to annoy mayhem with facts.Here is his response to me , when I pointed to the Likud charter as a way to point out his hypocracy , when he made certain references to Hamas,s evil plans for Israel.

      "@amigo, please spare us the same old obfuscations and distractions.
      We are not discussing the charter of one of Israel's political parties but you have to go there - like a moth that is attracted to the light. " mayhem

      Any comment that does less than kiss the zionist posterior is considered a distraction .Mayhem , long ago lost credibility here.Probably on his first post.I am too lazy to go find it in the archives even though it is quite simple to locate.

      The poor fellow is fighting a losing battle and he and his fellow war crimes apologists will end up losing it all.

    • “May this Tribunal prevent the crime of silence“.

      Here is a shortlist of weisel,s hypocracy.

      1, “Only the guilty are guilty. Their children are not.” weisel.

      Tell that to Israel.

      2, “No human race is superior; no religious faith is inferior. All collective judgments are wrong. Only racists make them”


      3,“Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must — at that moment — become the center of the universe.”

      I doubt they could find any Israel lovers willing to be impartial to sit on the panel.

      Israel never ever co-operates with courts/inquiries or investigations of any kind if Israel is the subject of said inquiry.They then come back later and claim they were excluded.

      See Goldstone report for proof.

      Much like the open inquiry the zionist entity held to find the two Palestinians they carried out an "Extra Judicial killing "on a few days ago.

      That Kangaroo court was staffed by Palestinian lovers --eh mayhem.

      Just like the open court procedures that decide to demolish the homes of "suspected" Teerrrooooreeests.

      Speaking of which??< when will the homes of the terroreeests who burned the Palestinian boy alive.

    • when a citizen of one nation signs on to fight for another one they make themselves unavailable to defend their own nation if the need arises while they are fighting for another nation.

      To me , this is traitorous and should not be allowed.I am not sure dual citizenship is a good idea either.You can only serve one master.

    • "I think children need to take risks after they leave university, and that they need to do something difficult, that involves going beyond their personal limits. Serving in the IDF embodies all of these elements." brooks

      Give me a break , the only risk being in the IDF is being hated by most people on this planet.He will learn how to commit war crimes and then go back to the USA with his new found talents.

      God bless America.

  • West Bank settlers exporting dates labelled as 'Made in Palestine'
    • "If it is an Israeli company the barcode starts with 729. "talkback

      Thanks Talkback, but it is anything but watertight.

      We have an example here in Ireland in which an Irish fresh herb supplier is purchasing Herbs from illegal settlers in the occupied territories and then packaging them in their own name and selling them in the Irish market.The package has "product of Israel" label in an inconspicuous place but at first glance the herbs appear as Irish products.I wrote to those people pointing out the issue but as expected , no response.Oh , well, onward and upwards.

      I was not aware of the Palestine barcode.That helps .

    • Could someone correct the heading to ,"Illegal" WB settlers.

    • This is not the first time they pulled this stunt.They did this about three years ago and it was noticed and stopped.I was keeping an eye on two local stores and the manager there told me that a load of dates came in marked "Produce of Palestine".They sold out in a few hours before I could get theer to check them.Later I found out they were products from illegal settlements.

      I now have a bar code app on my phone so I can tell quite easily from where they came.

      Does anyone know the bar code or what the company name is .

      Kay, those laws are there to protect Tony poodle Blair and Jack Straw et al who sent British squaddies to Iraq and to protect those who committed crimes in NI such as the "extra judicial killings in Gibraltar and the murder of 13 innocent civilians in Derry.No one has yet been charged or paid a price.

      Criminals protect fellow criminals.The Americans are no different and can now add Obama to the list of war criminals that need to be " protected " from justice.

  • Palestinian babies not included on Israel gov't list of most popular names
    • Anyone ask what is the most popular girls name in the state of Israel, that includes all the citizens.

      I am thinking of asking my gov to put out a list of the most popular babies names in Ireland but to omit all Hebrew names.I might also ask them to delete those names from the telephone book and the who is who of Irish society.

      Dont forget palikari , it,s just a about a few names.Relax.

      Any problems , hopknee.You can always ask for the complete list later.They will be happy to give it to within a few minutes.Relax.

    • What are the top ten Hebrew names in Syria, Egypt, and Lebanon? Do they publish a list? hopknee

    • Nothing new or recent about this mentality!.

    • "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.
