  • Imagine the KKK doing a biopic of MLK and you get... 'Fauda'
    • "This is the secret of propaganda: Those who are to be persuaded by it should be completely immersed in the ideas of the propaganda, without ever noticing that they are being immersed in it."

      Joseph Goebbels

  • The Knesset officially declares that Israeli democracy is for Jews only
    • Israel's Declaration of Establishment, the Country's most fundamental legal document upon which it was accepted into the Comity of Nations, clearly states, "THE STATE OF ISRAEL will be open for Jewish immigration and for the In-gathering of the Exiles; it will foster the development of the country for the benefit of all its inhabitants; it will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel; it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; it will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture; it will safeguard the Holy Places of all religions; and it will be faithful to the principles of the Charter of the United Nations.".

  • Israeli army says the killing of Palestinian medic Razan al-Najjar was 'just an accident'
  • Tom Friedman has advice for Palestinians: Embrace Zionism
    • Israel, in its Declaration of Establishment, legally defined itself as a state for all of the inhabitants of the land of Israel regardless of their religion, race, sex or politics. Israel actualized its founding beliefs when it granted citizenship to 25% of its inhabitants who were non-Jewish. They did this with the confidence that they would control the demographics of their new state. In retrospect, the Jews never returned to their promised land in the numbers projected and the Palestinians never were driven off their ancestral land in the numbers planned.
      For seventy years Israel has been expending huge amounts of energy, money and political good will in suspending the reality of this fundamental miscalculation.

  • Falsely accusing Palestinians of anti-Semitism is malicious
    • Natan Sharansky, chairman of the Jewish Agency, identifies the "three D's of Anti-Semitism" as Demonization, Delegitimization, and Double-Standards.
      Demonization, as when members of the Knesset identify the Palestinian people as "savages" and "animals".
      Delegitimization, as when Netanyahu constantly condemns Palestinian leadership as "no partner for peace".
      Double-Standards, as when Israel maintains a separate military court system for Palestinians.
