  • Kerry is off the Israel bandwagon
    • Kay, and their actions have given a large boost to BDS.

      I was at the Dublin protest yesterday and the term BDS was the subject of much conversation.

      The organisers handed out ( circa 3000 )leaflets offering methods of boycotting anything that comes from the occupation nation.
      One idea is to go to a known carrier of contraband goods and fill your basket/shopping cart to the brim and place a few Israeli products on top and then when you get to the checkout , you simply tell the clerk you cannot purchase these products and ask them why they are carrying these products.

      they will soon get tired unloading a full cart of shopping and having to return everything to the right shelves.That ought to have a considerable increase in labour costs.

    • MDM, Haaretz is running a piece on Kerry,s proposal , but it,s behind a paywall.Maybe you have access.The heading claims they have a copy of it.


      Might be worth a look but warning , Barak ravid is the author.

  • Destruction of Gaza's children is something 'every one of us must confront' -- Jon Snow
    • "Gaza’s Arabs deserve far better than living under the rule of jihadists who trample under feet the very essence of humanity, freedom and dignity we in the West take for granted."nf

      They are Palestinians nf.

      And you and your fellow apologists could give a rats posterior about them.

      "And I call on every person of conscience on the planet to follow suit." nf

      don,t waste your time looking inside the Satanic zionist cult to find persons of conscience.

      why don,t you take your bs elsewhere.Try j post.They will welcome you with open minds and hearts.

    • This video and others like it,are the reason Israel will do it,s utmost to keep international journalists out.(Arab Journalists they just murder).

      That is getting just slightly more difficult after the murder of the 4 boys ? (I get confused with the numbers and incidences , there are so many.) playing football and witnessed by foreign Journalists and how fast that went viral.

      Israel is far less likely to kill foreign Journalists.The hatred for Israel,s policies is on the increase , finally.

  • In Photos: Worldwide protest against Israeli attack on Gaza (Updated)
  • Raising money for Israelis being bombed in hospitals and schools, NY synagogue has not one breath for Palestinian dead
    • Sycamores , In "As you like it " Shakespeare was referring to dabakr.

      "The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool".

  • Which crowded cities can you fire into?
    • Israel claims to be better than everyone else.

      Most moral army/light unto the nations and all that jazz.

      The world is just holding you to the standards you claim to have.

    • So Jon, what you want is for any and all resistance to Israeli aggression to just get up and go away and leave the old men women and children unprotected so Israel can just waltz back in there and get on with task of disappearing those pesky Palestinians and completing the Jews only greater Israel.

      Go away jon, you are tiresome .

  • Hamas mimics Hezbollah tactics, and no one will have stability till blockade is lifted
    • Will Israel use the uprising in the West Bank as an excuse to annex it under cover of what,s happening in Gaza.

      Will they put a uniform on Peres so he can tell the brave idfers to "Break their Bones".

    • "It doesn’t take a very big gas or electric motor to pump lots of air"


      see 1.06

    • "i’m curious what kind of replacement hasbara central will be sending us. he’ll be a tough act to follow." Annie.

      enaheM. 4/5 and 6.

    • "Smoke displaces oxygen in enclosed areas like tunnels; even protective masks are useless in these situations." bilal.

      You are assuming Hamas has not prepared for this.

      Some tunnels may lead nowhere.Their entrances will be conveniently easy to find.

      Some may go along for a distance with camouflaged holes that drop twenty to thirty feet.Entrances also relatively easy to find.

      Could be slow going for those brave idfers.

    • The best response to Israel,s criminal attempts to destroy the Unity Government is to strengthen it.

      Then those states that were willing to give it a chance will find it very uncomfortable supporting the zionist plans to destroy it.

      USA/EU/Russia/China et al.

  • U.S. casts lonely vote against establishing war crimes inquiry in Gaza
    • Kay, here is what I found re the Irish position.It is a bit wishy washy but not completely unreasonable.

      " Source: AP/Press Association Images

      Late last night, the Department of Foreign Affairs also issued a statement to outline Ireland’s position following the vote.

      Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneva, Ambassador Patricia O’Brien said that Irish people were “appalled” by the violence in Gaza and the “very high and unacceptable level of civilian casualties”.

      “It is clear to us that neither side is paying adequate regard to the cost of their actions on innocent civilians,” she added.

      Ireland has called for an “end of the restrictions imposed on the people by the continuing Israeli blockade and the general closing off of Gaza” and the full implementation of Security Council Resolution 1860.

      (That 2009 resolution calls for a full and immediate ceasefire and a full withdrawal of Israeli troops from Gaza.)

      “The continued absence for people in Gaza of any political or economic perspective for the future is a breeding ground for extremist action,” continued O’Brien.

      “Ireland fully accepts that the Government of Israel has the right to defend its people, but this right does not negate the rights of others. Any use of military force in self defence must be in accordance with international humanitarian law, and in particular must be both discriminate and proportionate.

      In view of the casualty figures, we do not believe that this has been the case.

      “We would also stress that the firing of missiles against Israeli civilian targets is without doubt contrary to international law.”

      O’Brien concluded that Ireland would like to support an “appropriate investigation into breaches of international law”

    • The universe is wrong.

      Two exceptions.

    • To be fair, As I understand it , they (Ireland) abstained because they like some others wanted the resolution to include an investigation of Hamas .

      If that is true, then I don,t see a problem.

      It denies the zionists the excuse that the UN is not even handed.

      They wont co operate any way.

  • Israeli forces shell UN school where displaced Palestinians gathered, killing at least 9
    • So mehane, if I declared my undying admiration for the gestapo would that be ok.

      Would it be possible for me to disassociate my admiration for them and their crimes.

      Just asking .

    • Mooser, you have to admire him for his staying power.

      I just wish he had a whole lot less of it.

    • Israel is claiming Palestinians did this.They offer two possibilities!!.

      1, It was deliberate.

      2, It was a rocket that went astray on it,s way to Israel.

      So , lets see.

      Palestinians have only managed to kill two Israelis with these rockets and now we are to believe that one of them managed to kill a dozen people and injure 100 more.

      Zionist Chutzpah.

      I am willing to bet that right now, Israeli forces are trying to figure out how to get to the UN school so they can "control " the crime scene and refuse entry to any investigation personnel.

      Remember Jenin.

      Remember Cast Lead.

  • Berkeley rabbi mounts a soapbox in my living room
    • "Just a comment: Without context this post makes no sense. Why is Hamas sending rockets, even ineffectual rockets. If there is no reason, then it is a form of insanity and what kind of reaction is really possible?" yf

      Just a comment: Without context your statement makes no sense.why is Israel stealing Palestinians land and ethnically cleansing them.

      There,s your context.

  • Palestinians build tunnel to attack Israeli kindergarten, Netanyahu says
    • Medical advice to Hamas !

      A rocket a day, keeps the tourists away.

    • I wonder who dreams up this s--t.

      They would do much better in the fiction business in a civilian role, (pun intended) .

      I wonder what they call the dept that writes this caca, or does it come straight out of nietanyahus head.

      Imagine your country being led by a moron like that.Get out before the ship goes down.

  • 'Heartbreaking' is U.S. government's talking point for Gaza massacre
    • Yeah and it does not bother him when the iof goes into Palestinian homes late at night and arrests Palestinian children after wrecking their homes and beating them.

      My heart bleeds for these b----s .They are lying two faced criminals. and I include Kerry in that.He is an enabler.

  • Israel's 'defeat'
    • "If Gaza is quiet, imagine what the West Bank will look like in ten years." ME

      Israel will be able to record an even greater "Kill " rate given all those (not killed by Israel) will be Gazans.

      The West Bank will be the realization of the Greater Israel zionist dream.

      But BDS will kill the steely beast eventually.Then imagine what Gaza will look like.

  • Something you can do, wherever you are
    • Henry , at last week,s protest in Dublin , one of the speakers made the following suggestion.

      Go to your local supermarket where you know they have contraband goods,(grown in occupied Territory) or even anywhere in Israel , given the present oppression visited on Palestinians at the moment.
      Fill your shopping cart with those goods (labelled grown/made in Israel) and then take it to the checkout and tell them you refuse to buy those goods and remind them , they should not be carrying them.

      Then tell a friend.

      I am pretty sure that with enough people creating work for these markets , they will soon get tired of emptying shopping carts and putting the goods back on the shelf.
      I wonder how long it takes to unload an average cart and return all the items to the respective shelves.

      I wonder also if they could refuse to allow me to shop there.Would it be legal.Could I stir up a media event.

      So many ways to hit them legally.

  • US plays decisive role in Israel's attack on Gaza
    • Remeber!


      And 1S 1P 1V.

      Should be enough to kill the poisonous snake that is Zionist Israel.

      It,s going to take time but it,s going to happen.

  • 'Telegenically Dead': Israel’s crumbling media war
    • Not all crooks return to the scene of the crime.

      Israel is a nation of cowards and bullies.I wonder just how brave they would be , one on one.

      Without big daddy hovering in the background ready to save their valueless posteriors.

  • Netanyahu's latest 'cartoon evidence': racist image identifying Muslims with terror
    • "I have re-christened Israel’s offensive in Gaza as Operation Looney Tunes." Sumud

      Might I suggest , "Looney dunes".

  • Finally, Israel is alienating the US mainstream media
    • "Dim and Mehane could have been educated with a teeney weeney portion of that and there would still be money left over to give Hoph a compassion transplant." seafoid

      Waste of time.

      His "system" would reject it.

      Zionist DNA missed that .

    • "Obama doesn’t make demands of Israel. Quite the opposite. I don’t think Obama would have made such an open call for a ceasefire if he hadn’t OK-ed it with Bibi first.MDM

      You don,t mind the short version of your screen name , I hope.

      Excuse my interminable hope that the Nobel Peace recipient would get a transplant of humanity and do what is right.

      But something is driving nietanyahu to ask obama to play tough with him.
      Maybe he sneaks a peep at MW in between war cabinet meetings and sees the images of those protests.

      I get your point about who is da boss ,but will it save him from the crazies in "Judea/Samaria.Excuse the biblical description of the WB.

    • Human rights group has video of the moment when a Palestinian man was murdered as he was searching in bombed out area for his relatives.

      they shot him in the hand first and when he tried to get up they(???) shot him again.

      When will someone behead this monster.

    • I wonder if Obama has told nietanhayu to cease and desist and Israeli is getting as much revenge as it can before the boom is lowered on their heads.

      Wouldn,t want to be netanyahu either way.If he doesn,t stop Israel will be totally isolated and if he does , the wacko illegal squatters will get him.

      My heart bleeds for this satanic evil doer.
