      Read the vile diatribe in the comments section.It is no surprise that Israel is being isolated with supporters such as those .

      Earth to oleg. Each and everyone of us is claiming this has all the "markings" of a set up job, so your response is all phooey.

      Address the points that have been presented.And if you wish to enter a discussion about who broke the so called ceasefire first , just let us know.There is ample evidence of Israel breaking the ceasefire almost the same day it was put into place.You can start at the link below.

      Notice what appears to be footprints under the Rocket and what appears to be a Heel print under the veg leaves to the right of the so called rocket.Something very staged about this scene.Even if those are not boot marks you have to ask how the ground became flat , almost smooth directly under the rocket.Assuming it was blown there after the explosion versus staying in the bottom of the crater it still does not explain how those flat areas got there.

      It,s one of those Israeli cellphones.Does stuff ordinary cellphones are incapable of.

      So he brings a camera person along to photograph him taking a photo of the "crater"

      Officers do not dig holes jarhead.They get lower ranks like you to do their dirty work.

    • Israel needs a diversion, desperately.Any diversion that will swing world opinion back to the victims.Israel,s dirty trick dept is working overtime to come up with any justification to start another war.I have to ask why.Do they think that the millions of people who hit the streets during the Protective slaughter will be fooled by "ziowood " productions.Do they think that more images of kids being murdered at play will somehow bring those who saw those images just weeks ago will suddenly embrace the zionist entity and call on their pols to back Israel.

      They are insane and that for the Palestinians is the problem.Is netanyahu pulling the same bs that war criminals Livni and barak pulled by using Cast Lead to impress their constituents and garner more votes.When and how can the world be rid of these criminal s and those who apologise for them,

  • Ari Roth is fired by DC Jewish center -- after staging Nakba play
    • "Roth said his commenting to the media after the article appeared was the reason given to support the charge of insubordination".

      Hmmm, what to do with these insubordinate self hating Jews and supporters of terrorism.

      Ban them from Synagogues for life.Revoke their Israeli Passports and deny them entry to Israel.Make them wear their Kippas inside out so Jews willing to support Apartheid will know who their enemies are.Boycott their work.Revoke any and all membership in Jewish Orgs.

      "Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Thursday that the submission of the draft amounted to an act of aggression. "

      He then leaps into a tirade of whataboutery.

      ""The UN Security Council should concern itself with the real important issues," Lieberman said, "like the welfare of the citizens of the world, how to deal with the murderous terrorist acts such as those that occurred in Australia and Pakistan this week, or deliberate what has been happening in Syria and Libya, instead of wasting its time with the Palestinians' gimmicks."

      It certainly is not Israel,s vision.

      Why do the soldiers have their faces covered.I thought only Khamas Terroreeests wore face masks.

      Phillip is right.This image of the New Jerusalem is hardly something to be proud of .But there are those who will see victim hood in these images and others will see Jewish strength , ergo the realisation of the Greater Israel.

      "Why is asking the United Nations to endorse a Palestinian state more unilateral than building settlements to destroy one?".Beinart.

      Says it all.

    • "Correction, it should be: “US officials who don’t have Israeli citizenship”.

      Gotta make this distinction nowadays."oy vey

      You are really a hoot.Everyone knows Obamas official are almost all Israel firsters with dual citizenship.If you or your spouse do not have Dual citizenship ,then do not apply .

      So are you saying that Obama is surrounded by advisors who support occupation and colonialist oppression and land theft.No wonder we cannot get a peace partner.

      Long Live Palestine and end the scourge of zionism.

    • This is very telling and must have nietanyahu in a tizzy.

      "WASHINGTON -- US Secretary of State John Kerry would not guarantee the US will veto unilateral Palestinian actions at the United Nations, speaking to reporters on Tuesday.

      "We've made no determinations about language, approaches, specific resolutions, any of that," the secretary told the press in London. "This isn't the time to detail private conversations. or speculate on a UN Security Council resolution that hasn't even been tabled."

      Tabled yet or not, Jordan and France have publicly declared their intentions to move forward with resolutions that would set a UN-mandated timeline for Israel's withdrawal from the West Bank, without approval or consultation with Jerusalem. The Obama administration, following its predecessors, has long opposed any actions on the Middle East peace process that fail to include the consent of both parties."

    • "Or he could pencil out the speech he could go down in history for, confronting evil where he finds it in Israeli policy" David doppler

      I just finished watching him on BBC world and he referred to Israelis having to live with the fear of Hamas emerging from those terror tunnels and kidnapping them.He mentioned the murder of the Rabbis in the synagogue and the two Israelis that were stabbed and one other crime I have temporarily forgotten.He said no one should have to tolerate this .
      He then, in passing mentioned the "death" of the Palestinian Minister.

    • Kay, you will wake up to a different climate on Wednesday.

      1, The EU Parliament votes to recognise a Palestinian State, albeit with conditions???.But the resolution reconises Palestine "In Principal".A very positive step forward and a serious message to Israel.

      2, The EU lower Court votes to remove Hamas from it,s terrorist list .Assets are to be frozen for 3 months to allow arguments against.However not withstanding those arguments , this is a very very important sea changing moment.The hasbarists have had the very base of their justification for bombing Gaza or attacking the WB removed right from under them.No more listening to apologists naming the EU as one of the groups naming Hamas as aTerrorist Organisation.Nuttyahu and co are "up in arms" (pun intended).

      I suspect this is being carefully orchestrated between the EU and the US.

      Israel is on notice.The wold is fed up with their actions and will not tolerate anymore of their warmongering and illegal expansion.

      "GLICK: According to the survey data I cite in my book, most Palestinians already do buy in. Fifty-nine percent of Palestinians oppose an Israeli withdrawal from the areas. Polls show that Israel is viewed by most Palestinians as the greatest democracy in the world. If the Palestinians were given the freedom to choose, I have no doubt that their verdict would bear out my contention. What does the PLO give them? A life of privation, political repression, and corruption in an area it rules through the law of the jungle and the jackboot. On the other hand, Israel is a pluralistic, liberal democracy with a first-world economy. To buy in, all they have to do is stop seeking its destruction."

      More of the same glick hasbara!!

      "GLICK: Husseini was the British-appointed Supreme Mufti of Jerusalem and the unchallenged leader of the Palestinian Arabs during the British Mandate for Palestine from 1922 to 1948. More than any other person, Husseini invented the Palestinian people and developed their national ethos. Both Yasser Arafat and Abbas have extolled Husseini as the paragon of Palestinian leadership. Arafat presented himself as the lawful heir of Husseini’s mantle of leadership.

      The national ethos that Husseini invented was a wholly negative one. It wasn’t about developing a distinct Palestinian Arab culture or way of life. It wasn’t about building a Palestinian state. The Palestinian national ethos that Husseini developed was based entirely on seeking the annihilation of the then-nascent Jewish state and the Jewish people worldwide.

      To this end, he became a Nazi. He participated in the Holocaust and he fused traditional Islamic Jew-hatred with annihilationist European anti-Semitism of the Nazi pedigree. This legacy now has developed deep roots throughout the Islamic world.

      Either way, the game is up for Israel and it,s criminal ways.netanyahoo can squawk and whine all he wants.Most Europeans are not fooled and are actively addressing their views with their respective Political Reps.This is evidenced by the spate of votes favouring recognition.

    • There is an interesting letter to the ed in todays Irish Times.Slightly of topic but worth a read.Here are the first 2 Paras and as it is not a short letter I did not post it all.

      "Sir, – Many Irish observers may not be aware that, in his infamous “torture memo” of August 1st, 2002, Jay Bybee, assistant attorney general in the administration of US president George W Bush, cited the case of Ireland vs the UK before the European Commission and subsequently the European Court of Human Rights in the 1970s as the principal example under international law to justify his contention that the use of sensory deprivation techniques (which dominate the US Senate report on US interrogation abuses since 9/11) did not amount to “torture”.
      The governments of Jack Lynch and Liam Cosgrave in the early 1970s took the most important intergovernmental case on human rights in modern times against the UK government, citing hundreds of instances of inhuman treatment and torture against detainees in Northern Ireland and specifically alleging torture in the use of five “sensory deprivation” techniques (prolonged wall standing, hooding, subjection to noise, sleep deprivation and deprivation of food and drink) against a number of men.

      Some questions??.

      1, What is a normal Palestinian Government.Would it rule over a Sovereign Palestinian State and if yes , what would be the borders .

      2, Would it have an Army to guarantee against historical Israeli aggression , particularly criminal settler violence.

      3, Would it control it,s own Air/Sea space and Borders would I be able to apply to this Normal Palestinian Government to visit Palestine, without having to also get Israeli approval.

      Would the Tanks / Skunk trucks go home and would the Palestinians be free to travel in and out of this normal Palestine without let or hindrance from the "Normal Israeli State.

      Whether or not you wish to leave Occupied Palestine and leave your stolen goods behind is of no importance.You will be given the necessary impetus to leave.Or you can stay in Palestine as a legal citizen and hopefully you will keep your greedy paws to yourself and learn to live as equal citizens as a well behaved and loyal Palestinian citizen without the supremacist mindset you and your illegal squatter friends now have.

    • Update and correction.

      Ireland recognises Palestine dec 9th.I am not sure if this will change our gov,s foreign policy on this as up until now they have refused to recognise Palestine.The report says that all parties supported the motion.

      More later.

      Meantime Israel has condemned this action as being "unhelpful".Geez , I wonder what exactly would be.

    • I am dumbfounded.

      This was just reported on Irish radio and TV.The radio group will report this every 10 minutes as it is a News only station.The TV station will report at 6pm //9pm and 11pm.That represents a fairly large audience.

      Also , the Irish Gov , (Dail) is holding a members vote on recognising Palestine as a State this evening.I will report the outcome later.The vote is purely symbolic but it sends a message to our leaders to get their fingers out and do the right thing by Palestine.Sinn Fein sponsored the debate and motion.If it passes then both houses (The Senate has already given the thumbs up) will have given their blessing.

      They were shot by the Police and their families have been arrested and their homes demolished.The driver is in hospital and is not available for comment.

    • So where is Oleg???.

      Maybe he can enlighten us as to what a Palestinian was doing on a Jews only bus.

      Beats me how zionists allow themselves to be put in such danger.Imagine if he went "postal" and drove over a cliff.

      That would certainly conjure up "mixed " feelings for me.Hell , it might be a brand new bus.

      "White Racial Protection Themes: In keeping with the popular racist slogan of the 14 Words ("We must secure the existence of our race and a future for white children"), many hate songs focus on protecting or defending the white race, the white family, or white children. Such songs are often used to urge white men to take action. Thus, in the band Das Reich's (Wisconsin) song "Which Way White Man," white males are urged to take up arms: "White man wake up/Fence sitters we can't afford/In the name of the Reich the White man's fight/It's time to take the sword." Similarly, Youngland (California) sings, in "Stand One, Stand All," for white men to "Stand one stand all, stand up, stand proud/and raise the white man's flag." Other bands focus on the notion of a "white man's land," as in Final War's track "Land of the White": "This is our land, this land I see/This is our land so White, Proud and Free/This is our land when we've won the fight."

      Walid , I do not take him too lightly but to suggest that he/Israel can shut down Europe is a bit far fetched ,even for him, imo.
      Many large Euro companies have Jewish owners and share holders.The Pharma industry is the second largest exporter in Ireland.Most of those companies are Jewish owned.I cannot imagine they would appreciate their stock plummeting or profits disappearing. How would Jews in Europe fare if it was understood that Israel was causing mass loss of jobs.
      Conversely, what would Israelis think of Bennet when they get laid off as a result of bennet/Israel stopping shipments to Europe.Israel,s economy will tank very quickly , which is why bennet is making these vacuous threats

      It is a complicated situation but I am not convinced that such threats from bennet will cause Euro leaders to bow to his/Israel,s will.Remember also that our leaders answer to their voters and the feelings towards Israel are already negative , although our leaders are out of step with their constituents , at the moment.This is David and Goliath except Goliath is much bigger than David , this time around.

    • You have to laugh at this moron threatening 450 million Europeans.The man is clearly mad.

      He is right about not being able to sell products.He and his cohorts have done real damage to brand Israel and it is being removed from many shelves .Way past it,s sell by date.

      The reference to Israeli vegetables is equally idiotic..Ireland, s largest export is in the agri field , so we would benefit from bennets threats if carried out. From our perspective , we welcome this threat.

  • Israel begins criminal investigations into killings during 'Operation Protective Edge'
    • just, I heard today on the radio that the reason the case had to be dropped was that people, (witnesses) went missing or were eliminated . The intended consequences was to scare others off.Unfortunately it worked this time.This is just further proof of the need for the ICC.

    • Correction above ! Should read "AJ English.

    • Some very good news .

      The ICC today recognised Palestine as a State.I learned of this from AL English.

      More details later but essentially this makes it possible for Palestine to file charges against Israeli War Criminals at the Hague.

    • "The IDF also announced Saturday that seven other cases were closed in which the investigation “did not find that the forces’ actions in these reported incidents appeared to substantiate reasonable grounds for suspicion of criminal behavior, and therefore there is no basis for an investigation.”

      I am shocked and flabbergasted.

      Israel is always swift, thorough and ceaseless in it,s quest to apply justice to those who commit crimes in times of war.They leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of the perpetrators of such crimes.They ransack and demolish the homes of suspects and arrest their family members.Nothing is left to chance.

      And the there are IDF terrorists who seem to just do as they please and justice is left on the shelf until the next Palestinian child throws a stone at his persecutors.
