  • Front-page play for Israel battle shows that Israel has lost the Democratic Party base
    • Hillary Clinton cannot manage her campaign correctly as evidenced by this major error in judgment in failing to be a part of this debate.How could she be suitable to manage the affairs of the most powerful nation on earth. IMHO , she displayed cowardice and cognitive dissonance in failing to show up for the fight.Imagine her as the Commander in Chief when the nation truly needs to go to war and she says , hey let,s sit this one out.

    • How long before the goi sends demands that Cornel west and Zogby be fired on the basis , they are interfering with the internal affairs of a "sovereign nation". These meddling Jew hating antisemitic intruders must be taught a lesson.

      Hallooooa.

  • Tom Friedman needs to get an inoculation (attacking BDS) before he can say how bad Israel is
    • This isn,t much but it is notable.

      "U.S. Says Israel's New Government Raises 'Legitimate Questions'

      In a very laconic statement, U.S. State Department deputy spokesman says Israeli coalition will be judged by its actions.

      Just hours after the signing of an agreement between the Likud and Yisrael Beiteinu, the U.S. responded to the expanding of Israel's governing coalition. In a very laconic statement, the State Department said that the makeup of the new coalition raises questions about the direction of Israeli policy."

      "We have also seen reports from Israel describing it as the most right-wing coalition in Israel's history and we also know that many of its ministers have said they oppose a two-state solution," State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters. "This raises legitimate questions about the direction it may be headed in ... and what kind of policies it may adopt."

  • Acclaimed Irish literary festival's refusal to accept Israeli state funding welcomed by artists and human rights campaigners
    • gamal--let,s not forget Patrick Kavanagh--the man who wrote those words.It was first titled , "Dark haired Miriam ran away".I doubt that anyone but Luke Kelly could have done a better job of turning that great poem into a great song.Luke sadly died too soon at the young age of 46.So much we never got to see or hear..Only one of the original dubliners is still alive --John Sheehan .

    • 0ssinev , Tend to agree with you , that the level of pro Palestinian supporters is far greater in Ireland than with their brethren is the USA.I think this is partly because we have precious little zionist influence here and are not scared to speak our minds in the open.The Irish community in the USA are assimilated and worry about being accused of being antisemites if they condemn Israel.The Younger more recent arrivals just want to make a new life for themselves and are keeping their heads down.

      I believe there are many small groups of pro Palestinian supporters scattered around the USA.I bet a considerable percentage of those who took to the streets in American cities during the last Israeli slaughter in Gaza were Irish. Give them time .When the truth about Israel finally gets out , the American Irish will show their disgust for oppression and colonialism.

    • Congrats to BDS Dublin and the folks in Listowel The home of the late John B Keane who wrote ,

      " "Beautiful Listowel, serenaded night and day by the gentle waters of the River Feale.
      Listowel where it is easier to write than not to write,
      Where first love never dies, and the tall streets hide the loveliness,
      The heartbreak and the moods, great and small,
      Of all the gentle souls of a great and good community.
      Sweet, incomparable hometown that shaped and made me.".

      This is payback to the Israeli Embassy in Dublin , who facilitated the theft of Irish Passports and put Irish lives at stake.Suck on that Boaz and stand by for more of the same.

      This is how BDS will defeat Zionism .A little town here and a big city there.

  • Hard times: Pro-Israel group will pay young Jews $100 to watch its movies
    • Apologies "chesimardstamp".

      Watch out for those el burros in Tijuana , They like to keek ass.

    • "I am doing a run through to see how it works".chesinmardstamp.

      Ever fellated a donkey??.

    • This must be a new marketing strategy invented by none other than Zionist Israelis.

      I bet Ford/GMC/BMW/MB/Toyota /Nissan et al are waiting with bated breath to see how this new approach works.

      Just shows you how desperate these folks are.What,s next.A free car .

    • Where do I sign up.I am willing to watch as many as they can supply.Hell , this would augment my meager income but do I have to be Jewish or fellate a donkey to prove my ever dying love to the cause.

      If I get the gig , I will donate half the proceeds to MW.

  • Bill before Ontario legislature falsely claims ‘primary purpose’ of BDS is to boycott Jewish Canadian businesses
    • So , when Israel through it,s lackeys in many cities in many nations manage to get these anti free speech laws enacted and the relevant authorities begin targeting BDS activists and companies who support BDS will they build new prisons to put all these criminals in.Will they provide funding to enable the many legal battles that will ensue.Will the ordinary taxpayers sit idly by as their hard earned money is wasted in protecting a pip squeak nation while their own right to free speech is under attack.

      I believe these tactics will backfire on Israel and it,s fifth column ( traitors ) .Those politicians who are behind these efforts will eventually receive their just reward at the polls .

      To those who claim BDS is dead -tell that to those who have mounted a world wide effort to destroy BDS.

  • Sharansky disses American Jews for assimilating, then tells 'major donors' to universities to stop BDS
    • "Is there any aspect of Judaism, Jewishness, Jewish culture, Jewish continuity that he supports? It seems not. "Yonah Fredman.

      JVP --perhaps.

    • "Some day we will dance on Zionism’s grave." hophead qouting Phil.

      Hoppy , you got to admit it has a nice ring to it , eh??.

      Do you think we should plant some Olive trees on that grave. Naw , maybe not. There might still be some ziocaine fumes escaping that would harm the trees. Besides , a symbol of peace would be most inappropriate.

  • Israeli 'chutzpah' versus Palestinian 'sumud'
    • "But the spirit of this site is anything good Israel does is hasbara because Israel can’t do anything good " ohplease.

      This site would not be necessary if Israel would end it,s occupation, not to mention it,s 7 decades of land theft and unlimited acts of oppression all of which ammount to war crimes.Who cares about anything good Israel has done. This is not about balancing Israel,s good acts (Inventing Cherry tomatoes ) against murdering innocent people . You want Israel to be seen in a positive light then direct your efforts towards ending the occupation and convincing zionists to get the hell out of Palestine.Failing that , cut the whimpering and get used to the negative attention.It is well deserved.That is why Israel is now at the top of the list of most hated states on this planet.

      Now back to the image of that Idf thug brutalizing a child who happens to have a broken arm .This the face of your goody two shoes so called light unto the nations .

    • "Any chance there can be an exchange on here without biting sarcasm and snark? " ohpulllease

      Tell you what, you drop the zionist hasbara propaganda and we will drop the sarcasm and snark , aka truth.

      Chutzpah is a zionist demanding to be treated with respect while he/she insults peoples intelligence with worn out tiresome zionist twaddle.

    • "Civilians flee during fighting, not because of a massive call on Arab leaders to flee (I’m not denying the Nakba, so relax), but because civilians flee during fighting. Look at conflict everywhere in the globe – civilians flee." oh please

      Yes they do , but most are allowed to return to their homes as is required under international law.

      Nice try though.

  • Israeli settlements 'screwed up' Kerry peace talks, Indyk says--but U.S. is still Israel's lawyer!
  • When the Knesset comes to town
    • When people are losing the argument , they quickly lose the plot and resort to ranting and raving.These folks are probably used to talking over the few Arab Knesset members so they assume they can do the same anywhere they go with their hasbara and lies.

      Instead of remaining calm and collected and deal with the points raised ,they shout and who listens to a loud mouth who can hardly be understood.This is part and parcel of the zionist mentality.They know their cause is lost but are so far down the road of self destruction , they are passed the point of return.

  • Defying official censorship orders, Brown and RISD students hold Nakba discussion inside Hillel
    • I wonder when the French Gov will make it an offense to use the term Nakba .Needless to say , the Israeli "diplomats" have been paying visits to all the EU states to demand that they obey instructions from the King of the Jews and arrest any person uttering this antisemitic blood libel against Jews.

  • Wide-ranging interfaith coalition backs 'Freedom of Religion' bill to stop Trump ban on Muslims
    • "So is BDS dead? I’m sorry to say that it is. If it’s alive, tell me where." BC

      If you really want to know where it is , just google "why is Israel so worried about BDS. Do you have the courage to seek the truth.

      Fantasisng is fun , eh Blaine. If I ignore it , it might go away.

  • Zionism threatens to bring anti-semitism full-circle
    • Zionism should be renamed , "Auslam-ism " in honour of the mythical bird that flew in ever decreasing circles , until eventually disappearing up it,s own rear end.

      I just hope the final moment is excruciatingly painful .

  • Human Rights group: Gaza power crisis has led to death of 29 Palestinians, mostly children, since 2010
    • Question for our zio apologists.

      Has there been in the last twenty/thirty/ forty years , just one 24 hour period , during which Israel has not carried out one of the following crimes against the Palestinian People .

      1, Demolition of houses.

      2, Arrest of Palestinians and imprisonment without trial and denial of access to legal representation.

      3, Attacking Palestinian homes at dead of night , (or day) and arresting and abusing Palestinian children .

      4, Attacking and beating peaceful protesters with live fire and gas cannisters.

      5, Carrying out extra judicial killings , (Murder and a war crime ) while illegal squatters roam free to do as they please.

      6, Stealing land on the false premise that it is needed for military purposes.

      7, Allowing it,s soldiers at will to harass Palestinians at the many checkpoints , in their land.

      8, Bulldozing the homes of Bedouin families to make room for "Jewish communities ".

      9, Invading the Temple Mount and allowing settler fanatics to run amok ,

      10, Implementing discriminatory laws that favour Jewish citizens of the so called only democracy in the ME.

      11, Plotting means of banning Arab citizens of Israel from taking an equal part in what is supposed to be a nation for all it,s citizens.

      In a nut shell , there is not one day that goers by that Israel has not carried out some form of illegal activity against the people they oppress and colonise.

      NOT ONE.

  • Human rights advocates attend RE/MAX shareholder meeting to demand that the global real estate giant stop selling homes in illegal Israeli settlements
  • Students explain why they protested Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat at San Francisco State University
    • A war criminal given the red carpet treatment in the home of civil rights protests and anti Vietnam struggle.

      His presence is a smear on the City of SF.

  • DC meeting between Israel and Saudi Arabia marks end of Arab Peace Initiative and two-state solution
    • "My point was that Israel is not some kind of nightmarish hell-hole. It’s populated by real people with families and jobs and various normal interests, including support for our local team. jon s

      Of course it is not some nightmarish hell-hole , if you are a Jewish Israeli.OTOH --If you are a Palestinian who are real people with families and jobs (if they are lucky and accept slave wages from their masters) and have normal interests such as wanting to be treated equal.

      As for your team---would that be made up of illegal squatters such as yourself.

      Ah yes , Israel "The beautiful nation".

  • Are Clinton and Sanders really all that different on Israel/Palestine?
    • Hillarious Hillary will be given instructions from American FP HQ in Tel Aviv to name Bernie as her VP . That ought to rein him in.He is of an age that most likely precludes him from ever running for the top job again , so he may settle for next best appointment available.Also , he might be hoping for an FBI indictment of his boss and that would open the door to the top job.

      Only in America , the land of opportunity .

  • Elor Azarya, King of Israel
    • "Amigo that is typical ziobara tactic of changing the subject " .Kay 24

      Defending the indefensible is a tough gig.What amazes me is why hasbara central sends such lame brained apologists to the front line completely unarmed .Scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    • "You have a problem with planned parenthood? Giving women control over their bodies? " Jack duh

      Try not to make a complete idiot of yourself.Those women were not allowed control over their own bodies.

      "http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/israel-admits-ethiopian-women-were-given-birth-control-shots.premium-1.496519"

      Come on jack duh , double down on your idiocy and respond with another dose of ill informed zionist bs.

    • I often wonder , if, no when the zionists in Israel manage to rid themselves of all non Jews and self hating Jews , who will they turn on next.After decades of blood spilling and oppression , will they be able to live without the thrill of the kill.

      Anyone care to offer the name of the group who will become their first victims.Will it be the Russian Jews who are not really Jews but foreign invaders who took advantage of Israel,s " most generous and far reaching offer " of safety from persecution .Or will it be the Jews of Ethiopia . Or those secular Jews who do not practice historical Jewish traditions .

      It will be a sight to behold.

      El Al --announces last flight out of B,G airport leaving in 1 hour .

  • Note to Ken Livingstone: The British Labour party has supported Zionism much more than the Nazis ever did
    • pabelmont , thanks for the link and Bremmer,s book sales just increased by one.

      The more zionists jump on any opportunity to use the Antisemitism accusation , the more they open up the debate about zionism and it,s true history.

  • Saying Israel has no right to exist as a Jewish state is not anti-Semitic
    • Just because a law IMPACTS palestinians more doesnt make it a racist law " say a hoax

      Say , has the home of the zionist murderering thug who along with 2 minors (talk about teaching hate and incitement) burned the 16 year old Palestinian to death , been demolished ---yet.

      You are so full of zionist bovine excretion --it stinks all over cyber space.

      Incidentally , if you read the Adalah list correctly , you would have noticed that all if not most of those 50 discriminatory laws are stll active .That means they were enacted by the racist goi.

    • "Quick question, if the 25% non jews are so unhappy in israel how on earth did israel rank the 11th happiest place on earth? How utterly strange….."say a hoax

      Indeed it is strange .Must be that zionist racist bigots are at their happiest breaking international laws.Stealing someone elses land.Murdering those they are oppressing and generally making a f-----g nuisance of themselves in every way they can.

      Their sick happiness may also be explained by their success in being amongst the 4 most hated nations on earth.We know how zionists just love to hated.Serves the eternal claim of victimhood.

      Btw , the above poll was taken pre the last slaughter fest in Gaza so Israel may well be the most hated .Well done , you knocked Iran off their top position.Such a deal.

    • BDS is mired in hypocrisy up to its eyeballs" Zach S.

      From your pacbi.org link.

      "Given the orchestra’s strong association with the Israeli state and other Zionist organizations involved in “brand-Israel” activities [8], we call upon all Palestine solidarity activists in the United Kingdom to organize activities to protest and boycott the orchestra’s concerts. As long as it continues to partner with the state in whitewashing war crimes and international law violations, the Israeli cultural establishment cannot expect to be exempted from the growing boycott movement".

      Where is the hypocracy ???.

      Just in ,

      Accounts payable dept at hasbra central goes on strike due to increase in work load.They claim that hasbara policy of paying hasbarrats per post is putting them under a great strain.They cited m1945 as the straw(man) that broke their backs.They suggested that pay be based on quality v quantity but management said they would have to close down the accts payable dept if that policy was implemented.

    • "The Torah states the names of the owners of the land & the boundaries of the land. In other words, the Torah is the deed to the land. " m1945.

      Better get in touch with nuttyahoo and co. At the rate they are expanding , they might end up with boundaries outside the Torah maps version..What will you do then when you can no longer claim the torah is the deed.

      Btw , can you tell which page in your torah shows these particular boundaries.The UN might also like to have a gander at them.

    • "If you write on the deed to your house that God gave you your house, that doesn’t invalidate your deed ".m1945.

      If you write that on the deed to someone else,s house , you will probably end up in jail for attempted fraud.

      Some months ago in Ireland a homeowner who was having his house repossessed for failing to keep up his payments told the repo guy that god gave him the house.The repo guy responded with !!.

      God giveth and the bank taketh away.

      "Merkel: I Understand Why Abbas Turns to UN Security Council

      Der Spiegel article reveals that senior German officials are no longer willing to unconditionally support Israel on every matter, as they were ready to do in the past.
      read more

      The remark is unusual on Merkel's part, who has in recent years made several public statements that any solution to the conflict must be achieved through direct negotiations between the two sides. However, Germany voted for a draft resolution against the settlements in February 2011 in the UN Security Council. The resolution was not accepted because it was vetoed by the United States. Germany is not currently a member of the Security Council, but is considered Israel's closest ally in Europe. Merkel's stance is liable to have influence on other countries on the continent and in the world.

  • Palestinian astrophysicist arrested and jailed for second time in 15 months
    • Israel says it is intended on defeating BDS . They sure go a strange way about it.This will simply ensure that any international academics straddling the fence on BDS will come down on the Palestinian side .

      Israel has a propensity for shooting itself in the foot.No wonder they no longer have a leg to stand on.

      QED .

      Can,t have the Israeli court system clogged up trying Palestinians , (better to have on the spot trials and punishment as it cut,s down on cost ), when there are so many of Israel,s Jewish assailants on trial for their crimes.

    • "Speaking of muddying the water do you know if there is any truth in the rumour that JSIL has developed miniaturized domestic “skunk water ” cannon kits for free distribution to the OT “settlers” , ".Ossinev

      Those are actually miniature bottles of golan (occupied Syrian Heights) wine , way past it,s sell by date , that leaves a sour taste in the consumers mouth that lasts for a long time.I think they call it gut rot .When BDS is done with the so called Golan Heights wine producers , there will be lot,s of this to send to those Hebron squatters who will be all the easier to "sniff " out.

    • Ossinev , my apologies , I am hooked on antisemite media outlets and have been amiss in visiting bastions of truth such as CAMERA and y,net news and all the other readily available sources.Look, I have made up my mind and do not want to know the facts that would muddy the water.

      That,s Israel for you.The light unto the rest of us .

      Btw , I wonder how many of the illegal squatter,s children , ( thugs) are in prison for throwing rocks at and dumping garbage on Palestinians in Hebron.

      "Mommy, I am going out to have some fun.Is the garbage bin full.Ok Yossi , just remember to wear your gloves and make sure there are no cameras around and call me if there are.I will ask the IDF to arrest whoever it is , so you can have your fun.Bye my little darling."

      You do understand that by your own logic ,the British had every right to shoot a member of the Irgun terrorist gang caught shooting their soldiers -even if he was wounded and posed no threat .You also realise that you place your own soldiers in danger when they are captured.Careful what you wish for and don,t come whining when one of your most moral thugs gets his head blown all over some side walk.
