  • Countdown to the next round in Gaza
    • "Fishermen say they have brought home a varied catch of sardines, squid, shrimps, crabs and lax - Walid.

      Even the Marine life supports Palestine.

      Next , the Israelis will blockade fish trying to break the blockade.

    • "We also need to do what Trevor said:" just

      I was twenty feet away from Trevor when he gave that speech and his passion still rings in my ears.

      It,s going to take a lot of Trevor Hogans to reach the end zone but Israel keeps producing them.

      Ironically, Israel is the strongest link in this chain.

    • just, like you, I’m all for BDS but it’s not going to be enough. At the rate it’s picking up steam, it would still take a couple of decades to bear fruit but by that time, there wouldn’t be anything left to save. - "Walid.

      Don,t forget Walid , there will still be 5million Palestinians who will be demanding equality and the vote.

      I agree , Freedom is a long way off and no one method will succeed but BDS and 1S 1P 1V and engaging seriously with the ICC process and continued Global PR will eventually grind the zionist entity down until they succumb.

      Well heeled dual Citizens will flee Israel leaving only a nation made up of rabid religious nutters and hard core adherents to the Greater Israel where jobs will be scarce, tourism will be at an all time low and those that are left will soon tire of paying and dying for the religious factions who suck the life out of Israel.The streets will not be safe, real estate values will tumble and life generally will be hard for most to take.Nope, I don,t see a rosy future for Israel.

      South Africa Apartheid took three decades but that was long before the advent of the level of social media that exists today.Non violent resistance is much easier to organise on a global level, see the Block the Boat campaign in Oakland last week.

  • Thirteen arrested as protesters tell Senators Menendez and Booker: 'No more blank check for Israel's crimes'
    • "(When B’Tselem, the Israeli human rights group, had tried to run a radio ad merely listing the names of five of the hundreds of children killed, the Israeli Broadcast Authority banned them from doing so.) "

      Criminals hate standing in the dock as the list of crimes are read out to them in a court of law.

      The list of Israel,s crimes would take weeks to read out.

      Such actions by Israel simply highlight their guilt.If you are innocent , why carry out actions that try to cull freedom of speech.

      Sue for defamation of character.

      "Israeli Broadcast Authority".

      More suitably ,"Israeli Dept of end free speech".

  • In Gaza, Palestinians celebrate resistance and credit it with 'victory'
    • "Absent your investigative journalism, we are better served with the reporting from Gaza and this fact-based journalism from Yousef Alhelou, who ‘is a freelance journalist based in Gaza City’ ! - just

      And notably , Khamas has not yet killed.

  • The Palestinian message to Israel: Deal with us justly. Or disappear
    • "Brooklyn would be enriched by the influx of settler-returnees. - Walid.

      I for one wont oppose their ROR.

      I dont think they will take the option of going back home as failures.They would rather die.

    • "Even at this minute while the UNSC is in session" Walid.

      Samantha give me Power is just hilarious.

      Three remarks from sammy.

      1, Let,s be clear.

      2, The Mask is coming off.

      And the piece de resistance,

      "Russia is illegally taking territory".

      I just about fell off my chair hearing that display of chutzpah.

    • "Deal with us justly."

      That,s the stumbling block for Israel.That word Justly.

      Can Israel do Just or will they just disappear in the smoke of self immolation.

    • " Israel has conducted a systematic campaign of eliminating by murder or imprisonment any Palestinian showing real or potential leadership. -" JH

      And the Zionist propaganda machine is now crying crocodile tears for the Collabators (many of whom they blackmailed and forced into traitorous acts) who were shot by Hamas.

      I do not condone these acts by Hamas but will be damned if I will listen to Israel,s hypocracy on this issue.

      This a brilliant article by Jeff Halper and a definite keeper.

      Thanks MW for bringing it to us.

  • Elizabeth Warren says killing Palestinian civilians is 'the last thing Israel wants'
  • Yale Protestant chaplain says Americans must curb Israel so as to curb anti-Semitism
    • I can,t agree that antisemitism is returning to this part of Europe!!.

      " 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.”

      People make a distinction, he said: “They see us as Irish people of the Jewish faith.”

      Most Irish people direct their distaste towards Israel and justifiably so.I don,t think Irish Europeans are that different from Other Europeans.

  • Ceasefire deal after weeks of fighting in Gaza promises easing of blockade
    • "Those following the commands of Hamas have taken to the street in celebration. -" yonah.

      And will those who don,t be shot.

      Are you suggesting Khamas would shoot their Human shields.

      Seems a bit of a stretch, even for you yonah.

    • It’s very hard to get an idea of the number of non-fatal casualties in Israel. -mdm

      thanks for the response and to Walid.

    • "The one it has to really worry about now is the PA that appears will be given control of Rafah and other crossings from the Palestinian side. -"Walid

      So , the PA will be Israel,s next Khamas.

    • mdm , apologies , I should have been more precise.

      I meant casualties minus fatalities.Those don,t seem to be available in my searches.

      I wondered if Israel was/is keeping a lid on that info.

    • Question ?.

      Does anyone have the figures for Israeli casualties.

    • "They have accomplished nothing except for proving they can slaughter with impunity, and we knew that already. " abc

      They managed to lose 64 soldiers and four Israeli civilians and a non National.

      Your right and Israelis will be asking themselves --what for??.

    • "Thousands of soldiers with dual nationality are conscripted into the Israel Defence Forces, while non-Israelis also volunteer under the IDF’s Mahal programme, which invites Jews from other countries to serve in combat and support roles for up to 18 months. The IDF did not respond to a request for figures. " seafoid

      Meantime back at rancho islamaphobo,

      "Britain is working to track British citizens who could be involved in terrorist activities, Hammond said."

      The USA --ditto.

  • Bay Area gets radio ads about Gaza
  • Israel's decades-long effort to turn the word 'terrorism' into an ideological weapon
    • Nuttyahoo is on AJ claiming Hamas gained nothing.he sais Israel had forced Hamas to accept a ceasefire without any pre conditions .

      He humorously claimed that the international community had given Israel 50 days to get the job done.No one asked him why Israel stopped and if it was due to pressure from the same International community.

      This guy knows his time is up.

    • "Support for Netanyahu plunges as Gaza truce remains elusive
      Fewer than four in 10 Israelis think the prime minister is doing a good job, down from a record 82 percent around a month ago. -" Kay 24.

      Not to worry, he can have his 97,000 Euro bed installed in his plane on his way out of Yisrael.

      His travel plans might soon be somewhat restricted though.Going to be tough spending his retirement years in Micronesia or Palau.

    • Israel has been using this word so long , they even came up with their own version!!.


      However, it did/does not apply to Irgun/Stern/Lehi/Hagannah or any Jewish terrorists.

      You can fool some of the people etc etc.

  • Palestinian-American teen denied access to Israel’s airport
    • ” that Israeli security no longer considered her an American citizen with American travel privileges”

      Well that,s it then.

      Israeli security also says that a Jewish dual citizenship holder should be allowed to travel "Without hindrance" .

      From anywhere to Israel and from Israel to anywhere.

      The rest are just flotsam and jetsam

  • Our new look
    • Forget that silly idea.

      Print screen will do the trick.

    • I like the clean organised look which will take time to get used to but that is just the same as switching from I,Phone to Samsung but simpler.

      This may be a completely stupid question, but can you create an old version next to a new version so we can access and compare.(split screen style) on a once off basis for a few days??

      I assume you did something that in the planning stages??.

    • "I also found it impossible to cut and paste text from the article to use in a comment. - See more at: link to ,

      I came across that too but when I selected text and proceeded as normal ,it worked.Only thing missing is the blue highlight on selected text .

      Otherwise it works.Proof above.

      Now if this is not held up in moderation , you will get this response.

  • 'NYT' journey to Israel/Palestine to be led by Israeli 'expert' who called on countrymen to 'kill and kill' Palestinians
    • "Soffer explained, “When 2.5 million people live in a closed-off Gaza, it’s going to be a human catastrophe. Those people will become even bigger animals than they are today, with the aid of an insane fundamentalist Islam. The pressure at the border will be awful. It’s going to be a terrible war. So, if we want to remain alive, we will have to kill and kill and kill. All day, every day.”

      Reminds me of a Pitbull trainer who knows that to make his dog vicious he must be cruel and beat hatred into him.Unlike dogs who are not born vicious , Soffer apparently was.

      Soffer is a disgusting nasty piece of work and needs to be charged with incitement to murder.

  • 'NO DISCUSSION of Gaza' -- new Zionist etiquette
    • Imagine , if some German people desperate to show Jewish neighbours how really decent they are , invited them to dinner but put a sign on the front door!!.

      Do not mention the H word.

      I am not so sure , that raising the Gaza war is what bothers these people, but rather the inevitable slide into discussing the end of Zionism and with it, Israel .

      I doubt that most of them give a hoot about the Gaza People.

  • My life during the war
    • Thanks for clearing that up Annie.

      I have to have my seasonal squawk.

    • Annie, post above G Shae, (69 posts in his archive posting 4 weeks) was cleared at 4.58 pm --5 hours after I posted mine and now almost 18 hours later mine is still awaiting moderation??.

    • Rana, I met up with an 83 yr old man at a Dublin protest march two weeks ago and almost half way through the 3 mile walk I asked him if he was tiring.It was a warm and humid day.

      He gave me a somewhat discerning look and said ,this is the least I can do for the Palestinian people .

      Cmon he said. We still have a couple of miles to go, and almost defiantly, sped up his pace.

      It was one of the highlights of my day and put things in perspective for me.

    • My punishment for the criminals who are responsible for this carnage would be to lock them in a room and paper the walls with these images.
      24/7. No parole.

      And put them on the same diet they placed Gazans on.

    • Hi Annie, seems to me if this jerk tried this approach at MW he would not make it past any moderator.
      I am surprised his antics were allowed to go on so long.One post with that sort of anti semitic garbage should not get through.That he used many different handles should not make any difference.
      Maybe some of these sites need to tighten up their rules and then his project would be short lived and that would end the whole project.

      Am I missing something??.

      ie, how would this get through even the most tolerant of moderation.

    • "The words ‘final status’ do not fill me with optimism."MDM

      A euphemism for "End Days" in ziospeak.

      I agree , Hamas has a certain momentum right now, partly provided by the millions of people who hit the streets to show their collective distaste for the crimes being carried out by Israel.

      These protests did not go unnoticed by most of the leaders of the respective nations.Israel , I suspect is being pressured to be honest for once.

      Netanyahu is coming under huge pressure from his fellow criminals at home and probably fears for his life if he puts one foot wrong.

      The Palestinians need to tighten the screw on Israel , first by going to the ICC and secondly by sticking to their guns on the unity Government .

      Those are the two issues that Israel most fears.

      I forgot to mention BDS , but that is mainly up to the rest of us to see that happens.

  • HAMAS made me do it!
    • "You’re whitewashing their terrorism and crimes against humanity."palikari

      link to"

      " Zionist-dominated mainstream media vividly portrays Israel as a tiny embattled nation seeking peace in a sea of Arab hostility. 1 Arabs, we are told, commit acts of terror while Israel only resorts to violence out of self-protection. The facts of history paint a very different picture.

      Far from deploring terror, Israel has sanctioned terror to seize and expand its territory since its beginnings. In 1944, Zionist leaders in Israel faced two alternatives. They could continue to allow the British and Arabs to occupy Palestine, who would continue to pressure Israel to concede a Palestinian state. Or they could drive both British and Arabs out. Israelis chose the latter.

      Members of the Zionist ruling elite and their clandestine terrorist enforcers--the Jewish Agency, Hagana, Irgun and the Stern Gang--began to exert every possible terrorist means to dominate Palestine. Their strategy was simple: the more respectable Zionist establishment would take the "high road" and officially disavow terrorism. Meanwhile, Zionist terrorists would commit any crime needed to disrupt British occupation and to panic Arabs into flight. The Encyclopedia of the Palestine Problem, available in most university libraries, documents from British records more than five hundred violent or terrorist incidents against Palestinians and the British occupation between 1939 and 1948. These included bombings, booby traps and landmines, kidnappings and torture of prisoners, bank robberies, murders of Arabs, and assassinations of police and British officials. 2

      Chief terrorists were David Ben-Gurion, Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Shamir and later, Ariel Sharon. Begin headed Irgun, and Shamir led the Stern Gang. They cooperated intimately with the highest political body of the Zionist establishment, the Jewish Agency, and the popular Zionist resistance army, Hagana. Ben-Gurion headed Hagana and later the Jewish Agency. 3

      After 1944--when Ben-Gurion formally rejected the British plan for partition of Palestine into Jewish/Arab states--most Israelis, particularly the young, favored expulsion of British and Arabs

      a. “The Jordan river will be the permanent eastern border of the State of Israel.”

      b. “Jerusalem is the eternal, united capital of the State of Israel and only of Israel. The government will flatly reject Palestinian proposals to divide Jerusalem”

      c. “The Government of Israel flatly rejects the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state west of the Jordan river.”

      d. “The Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza are the realization of Zionist values. Settlement of the land is a clear expression of the unassailable right of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel and constitutes an important asset in the defense of the vital interests of the State of Israel. The Likud will continue to strengthen and develop these communities and will prevent their uprooting.”

    • "The dehumanizing of the Palestinians is way out in the open now "seafoid

      Todays Irish times letters had this response to the diatribe written by Mr Desmond Fitzgerald (a well known Islamaphobe)

      "Sir, – Desmond FitzGerald (August 14th) seems determined to label anyone who protests Israeli actions in Gaza as anti-Semitic. I think he is deliberately missing the point. The reason so many people from different backgrounds and persuasions are condemning these actions is because their representatives, who have no trouble unequivocally opposing Russia, the Taliban, both sides in Syria, the Islamic State and a host of sub-Saharan African warlords, are strangely reluctant to come out strongly against the atrocities (and that is undoubtedly what they are) being committed against innocent civilians and children in Gaza.

      I am prepared to condemn unconditionally any terrorist actions by Hamas against Israel. I look forward to an equally clear-cut statement by Mr FitzGerald concerning Israeli actions. I suspect I may be waiting some time. – Yours, etc,

      Dave Robbie.

      Don,t worry Dave, Mr Fitzgerald will show up again on the pages of the IT with more of his Arab hatred safely perched on his canary wharf in London.But he won,t condemn Israel,s actions.

      ( Those would be pesky online opposers of Israeli brutality) Got to get his whinge in somewhere.)

      Former president
      Mr Herzog’s father, former Israeli president Chaim Herzog, was born in Belfast and raised in Dublin. His grandfather, Yitzhak HaLevi Herzog, was Ireland’s first chief rabbi from 1919. In that role until 1937, he was a strong proponent of Irish independence and openly supported the first Dáil and the republican movement during the War of Independence. He became an Irish speaker and was known as “the Sinn Féin rabbi”. He developed a close friendship with then Fianna Fáil leader and taoiseach Éamon de Valera. In 1966, a forest near Nazareth was dedicated to Mr de Valera on behalf of Ireland’s Jewish community.

      Mr Cohen said that when he was growing up in Dublin during the 1950s and 1960s “there was a huge affinity between Ireland and Israel”.

  • Accounts of Israeli war crimes in Khuza'a, Gaza pile up
    • ‘What would Germany do if Switzerland began shooting rockets into German cities?’ jack-duh

      Why ,what did Germany do to Switzerland ??.

      Are they blockading them.Denying them their fishing rights or preventing them their free movement.

      Do they have an illegal 2 kilometer buffer zone inside Swiss territory.

      If so , please provide links to this revelation.

  • Hamas equals ISIS in 'grisly creeds and grisly deeds,' Netanyahu tells a nodding Cuomo
    • Ezra .I believe hamas learned their trade from irgun and the stern gang.They too blew up buses and markets.

      But you wont be troubled by the murder of pesky arabs.

  • We must target our politicians' 'cowardice' in the face of war crimes --Trevor Hogan's impassioned speech in Dublin
    • Trevor Hogan, in the true tradition of. Paidrig Pearse , James Connolly and Wolf Tone.

      Three earlier Irish heroes who stood up to aggression.

      Kay 24 , no one would dare harm Mr Hogan.That would bring out tens of thousands onto the streets and give BDS in Ireland a major shot in the arm.

      They will just have to put up with him.

  • Serving Israel's aim of lowering civilian deaths, 'New York Times' Gaza tally says 15- to 17-year-old's aren't children
    • "Boys to men– ‘New York Times’ tally of Gaza dead says 15- to 17-year-old’s aren’t children"

      Unless they are Israeli teens(one was nineteen) allegedly murdered by Hamas.

      Strange how that logic finds a space in the Zionist mentality.

  • Boycott Israel?
    • If it annoyed you so much hopknee, it must be spot on.

      The professor will be grateful for your unintended affirmation.

      Atta boy.

  • Tough Hillary Clinton says 'dreadful' pictures of dead women and children make it hard to get at truth-- Hamas is to blame
    • "He got Netanyahu to give up territory, which Netanyahu believes lost him the prime ministership [in his first term], but he moved in that direction, as hard as it was."HC

      Bully for Bill and Bibi.They gave back stolen Territory and she views that as a compromise.She is more Zionist than many Zionists.

    • My apologies to Peter Weiss.I know you must have worked hard to bring this and it must be done.

      Reading this is like being stabbed in the back repeatedly.She even twists the knife each time she spouts her dishonest and self serving biased lies.


  • The Greenhouse propaganda—How Gazan history is being rewritten to dehumanize Palestinians
    • I wonder what sort of reception a narrative that suggests that Jews went willingly to the Gas Chambers would receive.

      Israel,s apologists are so desperate, there are no more red lines for them.

      The cornered rat syndrome.

  • 'We are all Palestinian'
  • Six arrested in civil disobedience at Federation offices in Philly
    • "Dublin playing Monahan at crime park enough Palestinian flags waving in the stands." Gamal

      Not sure what you mean Gamal.I am a GAA supporter and will be in "Croker" tomorrow for Kilkenny/Limerick game.What,s with the crime park stuff.

  • Rep. Steve Israel tweets his meeting with Mikey Weiss of Roslyn Heights -- but not Netanyahu
    • Netanyahu sounds very worried about his future.

      I wonder if he will be allowed a "127 ,000 dollar" bed in his cell at the Hague.


  • 'An extreme rightwing regime behaving in the most criminal fashion and defying the world and unscrupulously using the Holocaust to justify what they're doing'
    • piotr.

      Sorry, I mean the Government Of Israel.

      I am sure my government has a dirty tricks dept but it would pale in comparison to the occupation Nation.

    • I watched this event live last week.He is brilliant.

      David Norris ran for President against Michaels D Higgins who was elected.
      David Norris had to pull out when GOI the dirty tricks Dept waged a campaign against him and raised the issue of his Israel partner who had been charged with sexual offenses against a minor.These were denied by Norris who said his partner who was a pro Palestinian activist was the victim of a Kangaroo court.

      Norris would have made a fine President.He is an Intellectual and a great scholar.

    • Good news from Dublin , Ireland.Saturday August 9th.

      An estimated 10,000 people showed up for this weeks Protest.

      This is twice the previous highest number which was 2 weeks ago.Today,s protest was the 5th one in a row.The protest was held outside the Israeli Embassy.There were several speakers including a Jewish Academic who works at trinity.
      A live hook up to Al Shifa Hospital was arranged through which a Doctor relayed the Health situation in Gaza.

      One of the organizers said that as long as Israel keeps their siege on Gaza , Irish people will maintain the siege on the Israeli embassy every weekend for as long as it takes.

  • How the Israeli discourse on terrorism seeks to justify blatant war crimes
    • "Holocaust survivors, emerging forom the death camps and seeking to rebuild their lives in the Jewish historic homeland – were terrorists?"

      When they joined terrorists Orgs such as Lehi, they became Terrorists.

      When they went to squat on someone else's land they became terrorists as that is a war crime.

      You may well have the blood of Terrorists coursing through your veins , judging by the way you try to convince others that Israel had nothing to do with Terrorism.

      Hamas,s terrorism is required to prevent the theft of lannd.Israel,s terrorism is used to steal land.

      I know who gets a lighter sentence in my opinion,

      Israel was born in terrorism and still practices it.

    • "1. So far, noone from Mondoweiss has seen fit to reply." jon s.

      How then do you explain your items , 4,5 and six.

      "4.Amigo, as far as I know the LHY ribbon is not given to soldiers. It was given to -by now elderly-veterans of the LHY." jon s

      Lehi were terroists.

      The question again.

      Do you think this Ribbon honoring Terrorists should be rescinded.

      Yes or no.

    • "The question is:
      Do you support Hamas? (I’m referring to both goals and methods)

      I would appreciate any answer or answers."jon s

      I will answer your question with a question for you??.

      Do you support the issuing of the "Lehi Ribbon of honor" to Israeli soldiers , given that Lehi were a terrorist group.

  • A Palestinian defends violent resistance to occupation
    • "I’m not a lawyer, but in most states in the US that is not true of theft. If someone is stealing your car you can’t shoot them. You have an obligation to de-escalate the situation and walk away if you can. jon66

      You presume the presence of a Court of Law to which the Victim can go to.

      "Property doesn’t triumph over life." jon66

      Qualifies as the most idiotic comment coming from a zionist pro expansion, land theft, ethnic cleansing property destruction and all around criminal behaviour of the occupation nation.

      Are you people for real.

    • Ramzi, the date should say aug 9th not 6th.

      One of our speakers today (a former rugby player on our National team) made a wonderful statement!!.

      " As long as there is one Palestinian still breathing, Zionism does not get a mission accomplished.".

      We had a live link to al shifa hospital and a doctor there spoke to the crowd.He was given a very loud and long "Free Gaza" from the crowd.

      You are not alone.
