Sometimes I feel an urge to defend Israel against baseless attacks so common on liberal sites like mondoweiss. However, I am not against listening to the other side, however stupid their arguments are.

  • Norman Finkelstein's new book on Gaza is a meticulous account of Israel's crimes
    • Suggest you re-calibrate your Hamas-o-meter to reflect the 2017 revised charter:

      Is that the "leaked" one?

    • ... most recent charter leaked last year

      Do you have any more recent leaks?

    • Finkelstein is a tragic figure. Most of his "Holocaust Industry" was right on mark.

      However, he is a Marxist, and as such in Arab-Israel conflict he tends to stick to his global ideology while ignoring obvious facts.

      And these facts are - Hamas' charter calls for the destruction of Israel and they are not just quietly praying for that. Even casus belli does not exist, a pretext will be found to cut them to size. The rest is commentary.

      However, Finkelstein conclusion is interesting -- Israel's long term strategy is winning. Good!!!

  • There are two narratives, but one reality: Palestinian dispossession
    • Sancta Simplicitas

      My dear amigo, I appreciate your concern.

      However, this Jewish infighting is nothing new. Throughout history we had Jews turning on their brothers.

      After all, moser (Mooser) is a Hebrew word for a Jew who informs on fellow Jews to a non-Jewish authority. And then such authorities would use this traitor testimony to punish the Jewish community.

      Sometimes it would be even worse. For example the Spanish Inquisition was established by Torquemada, who was himself an ethnic Jew.

      Today antisemites love to point to Jewish critics of Israel like Norman Finkelstein, Ilan Pappe, Anna Baltzer, JVP, etc. Hey, this very website is being run by Jews.

      But don't despair my friend, we now have our own state, and what is Pappe compared to Torquemada or Mondoweiss compared to the Spanish Inquisition?

      As for where are we - we are everywhere. Remember? We run the world!

    • that’s funny, i read it

      I stand corrected. The quote is there. He is only half-a-fraud.

    • Misterioso
      Is no more so.

      The quote about Kings David and Solomon that you had attributed to Uri Avnery is not in the link you had provided. But thanks for the article - I totally agree with its ideas.

      The other two links point to the same article that was thoroughly discredited by the scientific community.

      Me think you are a fraud.

    • No, little mosie, yours is not "no, thank you".

      Yours is more like - "I am a good Jew, don't beat me! Those are the bad Jews - beat them!"

    • ... “Boris” adopts the classic tropes of the self-hater.
      Self-hatred is a disease. It is a sad disease borne of many generations of persecution, but it is a disease.

      My poor Moo-Moo,

      I don't hate myself. I proudly accept my destiny of being part of Jewish nation.

      It is you who shows clear signs of self-hatred. Throughout your comments you show your feeling of being trapped, of being part of yudenkite. And that what motivates your hatred toward Israel.

      I have only pity for people like you -- it sucks to be you -- but I also accept the fact that you are part of us.

    • I wonder why “Boris” is so comfortable with anti-semites telling him who is Jewish?

      Moo, it is called "radical acceptance".

      You chose to ignore reality, I don't.

    • ... what about the rest of us whose Jew-dar isn’t as finely tuned?

      I gave you this answer before --- it is the antisemites who are the best judges of who is a Jew and they will easily identify you just by your looks.

      And they don't care about your politics, religion, or cultural/educational level. It is not what you do, it is who you are. And if you are born a Jew, you will remain a Jew for the rest of your life, and you will pass it to your children.


    • Mooser refused to give me her picture so that I can tell her if she looks Jewish.

      But look at photographs of Norman Finkelstein. His parents were Polish Jews - the area roughly where I am from. Finkelstein is very easily identifiable as a Jew, as his face has very obvious Semitic features.

    • In the Soviet Union everyone's ethnicity was recorded in internal passport. Mine was a "Jew" because both of my parents are Jewish.

      However, they don't hit you in your passport, they hit you in your face. We, the Jews, are easily identifiable. And, as I wrote before, we have Semitic features that are foreign to Europeans, and, as history shows, we had been identified 6,000,000 times before.

      I am just stating simple facts that you chose to ignore.

    • @Mr. ioso

      You are soooo wrong.

      Everybody knows that Paleostinians trace their ancestry to dinosaurs.

    • @lonely rico

      The nature article is full of "most plausible", "most likely" and such. It is inconclusive, to say the least.

      Overall mtDNA Haplogroup K is found in about 6% of the population of Europe and the Near East, but it is more common in certain of these populations. Approximately 16% of the Druze of Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and Jordan, belong to haplogroup K. It is also found among 8% of Palestinians. Additionally, K reaches a level of 17% in Kurdistan.

    • John,

      You are mistaken.

      I am a Jew, born in Ukraine.

      My maternal haplogroup is K1a9. says "You descend from a long line of women that can be traced back to eastern Africa over 150,000 years ago".

      Eastern Africa (if you are geographically challenged, that's near Middle East) - not Europe.

      So, now you have to write another letter with apologies...

    • It does not look like a riddle - indigenous means native.

      As a nation - the Jewish people are the oldest nation existing today that had originated, lived, and had its nation state in the area known today as Palestine.

    • The term "indigenous people" appears 6 times in this article.

      Yet the author fails to understand that it is the Jews who are the indigenous people of that area and that the British simply recognized this fact.

  • Israel as a perversion of Judaism and the modern nation-state
    • old fart,

      I wrote that I will not answer any more questions.

      You did not ask any - just made some stupid statements.

      So, this comment is not an answer to any question, just a simple response to you - buzz off!

    • Ok. Here are the rest of the answers.

      With questions like "what you do to Nonjews" you enter the imbecil territory.

      Which "nonjews" are you talking about?

      Are these Arab countries that had tried to destroy Israel ever since the country establishment? Israel kicked their lower "back" and I am very proud of it.

      Some "nonjews" were very hostile to the Jewish population of Palestine and were invited by the Arab counties to leave while their armies wipe out those pesky Jews. They left - decisions have consequences, Israel does not let them to return.

      Sad, nothing to be proud of.

      BUT, even more Jews were expelled by the same Arab countries. These Arab countries are the ones who do not allow the people they told to leave to integrate, while Israel had accepted all the Jews who came from these areas. So, it should be resolved as a population exchange and these permanent refugees should settle where the Jews lived before.

      Some nonjews live in Gaza and the disputed territories. Israel left Gaza and gave its Palestinians all the infrastructure. It got rocket fire in return. Pals famously rejected all peace proposals - produce nothing but terrorism. They hope that ignorant people like you will be sympathetic to their case. I am proud how Israel deals with this situation - very measured, trying to minimize civilian casualties, and win hearts and minds. But this will take time.

      Finally, there are many "nonjews" in Israel. They enjoy equal rights, many are in the position of power - like members of parliament, government service, army, courts, etc. I am very proud how Israel treats its non-Jewish minorities.

      P.S. I am not going to answer any more questions on this thread.

    • Well, my soft-bottom friend, since you asked me nicely, I will answer your questions.

      Here is the answer to the first one:

      Looking back 2,000 years, Jews were very proud people. They had defeated Greeks (remember Chanukah?) , even Romans found it difficult to pacify them. As the matter of fact, Romans were humiliated by small Judea as it took 8 legions to win Judean war, while it took only 2 to win Egypt. So they took their vengeance on survivors of Judean wars and Jewish rebellion.

      The policy of Roman Empire toward Jews was humiliation. Emperor Hadrian renamed Judea to Palestine in order to wipe out Jewish history from the area. Jews were banned from Jerusalem. The policy of humiliation continued especially after acceptance of Christianity, during Crusades, etc. It was important for the Church to show that Jews, who they claimed killed Jesus, are miserable.

      Often it was even worse than humiliation - it was murder, rape, extortion, expulsion, etc. Jews in Eastern Europe were subject to pogroms - beatings, murder, rape, etc. Any proud Jewish man resisting the oppression was killed. So, the "wise" policy of Jews in Europe was to hide - and not to fight the oppressor. Some became mosers - informers on their own people. These were the lowest of the low - degraded Jews.

      Jews in Muslim countries had it a bit better. They had to pay special tax, there were many restrictions - like they could not ride horses, they could not testify against a Muslim in court, etc. Often Muslim boys were told to stone Jews, especially after Friday prayer, and Jews could not respond - they had to flee. All of this was designed to humiliate Jews.

      During this time Jews had developed the idea that the honor is not that important. Life is. If a Jewish girl was raped, it was an awful event, but she was not expelled from the community. If you compare it to other nations - even today such girl is murdered, often by her family.

      Anyway, this is my short answer to you my cushy friend regarding whether Jews were not proud before.

      I will write answers to the other questions once this one passes the "moderation".

    • That was one hell of a “thank you” we gave Iraq for it, huh?


      Arab countries had expelled their Jews - none left in Iraq, although Jews had inhabited the area before Arabs.

    • Questions? What questions?

      You only produce hot air!

    • Yeah, but at any time the other inhabitants of the ghetto might possibly maybe turn on you.

      Moser, you have your answer from a local antisemite - the best source.

      And as a history lesson and a reminder, German Jews in the thirties also felt that they are equal citizens and have a lot of influence on German life. Fortunately, most Jews have longer memory than yours.

    • @Talking rear end

      You are obviously an imbecil.

      I am replying to you only because I like to play with your handle.

    • Mooo, your membership is in your genes.

      Just like Native Americans define membership in their tribes based on percentage of American Indian blood in your veins, after the Holocaust Jews are forced to acknowledge that that's how the world defines who they are.

    • Who is forcing you, loser?

      I told you before - relax, we don't need you.

      And your "survival" is living as subjugated people in a ghetto. No proud Jew today would want that.

    • ... religion-based identity ...

      This entire article is that being Jewish is no longer based on any religion. Many Jews today are atheists.

      You are definitely stuck in your own world...

    • Today, noted Avineri, there is not one idea or one institution “around which all Jewish people can and do unite, except Israel.”

      A former director of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum once wrote that Jews

      1. are united through their common history
      2. from that history they are realize their common vulnerability
      3. ... and this teaches them the importance of Israel.

      Avineri seems to have bypassed 1 and 2.

  • The checkpoints, by Rawan Yaghi
    • It is a sad story.


      There were no checkpoints prior to 2001. People moved rather freely. Checkpoints were all established after Arabs rejected peace offers and started intifada.

      Wars have consequences.

      "You stole our land", "you treat us worse than Nazis treated you", "go back to Europe" - all these are fighting words.

      Do you still want to fight?

      Ok. Be my guest. Then don't come back crying when you lose.

  • A private tour of the Hebron Heights winery
    • I was obviously referring to that specific thread as discussion was going on a tangent and I had said everything that I wanted in relation to that topic.

    • I think it is one thing to be against something politically, and we don't have to agree on everything.

      But one thing that we may agree that it was kind of low to accept the two bottles from Moshe as a gift. You should have paid for them.

  • The Times discovers 'the best interests of the American people' in the Russia case
    • Is it just possible that supporting Israel IS in the interest of this country?

      Obviously, it is not in the interest of Russia - they voted against Israel in the Securities Council.

      Does not that also mean that Obama was colluding with Russia against American interests?

  • Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as capital of 'Jewish people' is assault on my religion -- Queens rabbi
    • This is my last comment here, which sums everything up:

      Losers, you can't face reality!

    • Why don't you just "approve" my comments without delay and in the order I am writing them?

    • Keith,

      Please spare me your righteous indignation. Nowhere I am anti-Gentiles.

      There were large casualties during WWII largely because the German army specifically targeted civilian population. All resistance was severely punished. Most of the casualties had occurred in the East Europe and that's where Germany was defeated by the Soviet Union, as 87 percent of German casualties had happened on the Eastern front.

      Jews were part of the Soviet Army. As the matter of fact, during that time the Jews had the highest percentage of Heroes of The Soviet Union medals (the highest military award in the USSR) among all nations in the USSR in relation to their population numbers. Israel honors all people who had fought the Nazis.

      Again, it was a very brutal war. However, among all other casualties, Jews had suffered the highest percentage because Nazis and their collaborators specifically targeted them. And this is the fact that is well recognized.

      So, your comment is taken right from your rear end.

    • Full disclosure, Moo, I was asking about my response to Anne Robbins not showing up.

      I had posted one (see above) and after I had posted this one, I had noticed that it had finally appeared.

    • "... what was it? ... what was it? ... what was it?"

      Send me your picture, I will tell you if you look Jewish....

    • See, backtalk, wars have consequences.

      Arabs lost the wars that they had started, they refused to sign any peace deals as recent as 2001. Now, unfortunately, they ALL have to pay.

      Israel would gladly give them self-rule, but the history shows that they are still hope to destroy the only Jewish state in their midst, so, until they grow up, the situation will continue.

    • "... My point was that (like in your comment the Jews) the Roma people too, were murdered simply because they were Roma people, not for their religious beliefs. So what is the difference??"

      No difference. I am glad that you agree with me and not with a rabbi in the video that Jewish identity is not defined by your religion.

      "... the Sami people look different. I thought such times had already passed."

      I am sorry, I did not know I are blind.

    • What happened to my reply to Annie Robbins?

    • Page: 2
    • Well, Kaisa, German action against Roma was mixed as some claim that they are Arians.

      However, the point is - they, Roma people or, as they are commonly called, gypsies - are easily distinguished from general European population. They don't look like Finns, do they?

    • ... he was indeed tasked with poisoning Gaza wells ...

      Here is his book -

      He mentions that Egyptians had caught two Israelis who they had accused of poisoning wells.

      It is not the same as he was asked to do it. Can you point me specifically to this claim?

    • Can't argue with a woman.

      What difference for the purposes of this discussion does it make if it is exactly 6 million of 5.9 million?

      Are you, Annie, denying the fact that millions of Jews were murdered for simply being Jews?

      And that many of them were not religious and that they were identified by the Nazis and their collaborators from the rest of population not based on their religious affiliation?

    • Well, it works every time - sooner or later Israel-bashers reveal themselves as Holocaust deniers.

      One questions the number, another dismisses its uniqueness.

      Yes, six million is an acceptable number - some claim it could be bigger.

      Yes, overall 50 million died in that war, but Jews, unlike everybody else, were hunted and murdered simply for being born Jewish -- not for their religious beliefs.

    • Well, walkie-talkie, Jews haters claimed that we poison wells and spread black plague, Nazis claimed that we as subhuman, you and your crowd claim that the only Jewish state practices aparteid.

      What's a difference?

    • Moser,

      Whatever the method was/is used - is irrelevant. The point is that it exists.

      The simple fact is that it was used at least six million times - or you want to deny it?

    • Are you suggesting to simply ignore it? Like BDS?

    • Well, my mosing friend, you seems to be quite ignorant of this topic.

      Why don't you do your own research?

      The ultimate answer - your anti-Israel activity will not save you and your mosing friends. At the end you will be treated like the rest of us...

    • So, the good rabbi made a determination that being Jewish means following Judaism.

      It is too bad he could not tell it to the Nazis who had murdered 6 million Jews without asking if they kept the Sabbath or ate kosher.

      What a moron!!!

  • Israel issues BDS blacklist against 20 organizations-- 'badge of honor,' Munayyer says
    • It is funny - most commenters say they don't care about this ban, yet, the number and the vitriol of the messages suggest otherwise.

      Israel must be doing something right here -- it had hit where it hurts...

    • Yousef and Osama don't like it. Am I surprised?

      As for Rebekkka, apparently, she was using tax-deductible donations to her organization to visit her relatives in Israel. Nice!!!

  • Gaza’s airport, once a symbol of statehood, is now a wasteland
    • "The Palestinians held their humanity and traveled without any restrictions at that time".

      I am not sure what is this deal about humanity, but it is true that they could travel without restrictions prior to 2000.

      Then they started the war they call intifada.

      The rest is commentary...

  • Why Ahed Tamimi's slap is so thrilling to Palestinians
    • Well, Johnnie, as you can see I had posted two comments - one at 10:23 am and another at 10:25 am.

      Checked at around 11:09 am - the 10:25 comment was there, but not the 10:23 one. And, just for the site's Looser, the "awaiting moderation" text was not their either, so I did indeed push that button.

      That's why asked what happened to it. One thing is clear - they play with "moderation". Otherwise, why would they "approve" the later comment and then "find" the earlier one?

      And why do you thing it is racist? Are your biased against dinosaurs?

    • Hey, mod, what happened to my comment about dinosaurs?

    • If you are so "inspired" - go ahed and hit a policeman. Then we will see what happens...

      Oh, yes, make sure it is recorded...

    • "... we were already here.”

      Every progressive knows that Paleostinians where the original dinosaurs, and were created by Allah before humans.

      They had also invented the paleo diet...

  • The Chanukah of fire and occupation (is not about ancient times)
    • So, Jonathan, you admit noticing the article mentioning a slingshot AFTER you wrote your piece. Meaning - you had written your antisemitic propaganda without having all the facts.

      I remember how during the Gulf war one of you kind was laughing at Israelis' reaction to Saddam shooting rockets into Israel calling Squad missile "primitive". Like - what's a big deal?!

      So, on one hand you mention that this "protester" had just a mere slingshot (not a big deal), and then you recall that Biblical David killed Goliath with such weapon. Do you see a contradiction?

      From what I see, this weapon and its use was determined to be dangerous for the soldiers guarding the border. So, instead of indiscriminately shooting at all attackers, this attacker was selected and neutralized.

      And, or course, your use of the word "selection" was deliberate to bring comparison to the Nazi concentration camps. But I would like to point out to you that this fellow was not brought to the border by a locked car on a train. He came by his own volition, he chose to attack and he selected a weapon. Israelis only acted in self-defense and had no choice, but to neutralize this attacker.

      Thus, your comparison of Israelis to Nazis is invalid, and, based on EU definition of antisemitism, is antisemitic.

    • > He was armed with a wheelchair and a flag.

      Yet, from

      > He was carrying a slingshot and a small flag,” Nael said.

      So, which one is true. Will we learn next that he was carrying a Molotov cocktail, a Kalashnikov, a suicide vest?

    • From the article:

      1. It suggests that Israel had no choice but to bomb Gaza
      2.It implies equivalent force between the IDF and Hamas
      3.It positions Hamas (and by extension all Palestinians) as the hostile party
      4.It preemptively justifies every Israeli action

      My response - totally illogical conclusion.

      1. What other choice do their have to respond to rockets?
      2. No, it does not, and IDF is not using it's full strength.
      3. Hamas - yes, all Palestinians - no.

      Support from people like you??? Are you kidding?

      As far as reform Jews are concerned, i remember how in the year 2000 they cancelled their Israel vacations. And so did Conservatives. Except for the Orthodox. The planes were flying empty.

      It is the Christians who are the biggest supporters of Israel in this country. I had seen them by the bus loads in Israel in 2000, like every year.

      Most of Reform Jews - especially the converted ones - don't care about Israel, Jewish history, and their conversion is fake - just something to talk about at the dinner table. I remember there was no article in New York Times about a family - I think their name was McDonald - they converted to Reform Judaism and all they wanted was to pray at the synagogue and not discuss Israel.

  • Forget pinkwashing, it's brownwashing time: self-Orientalizing on the US campus
    • >>> SSI’s Semitic campaign is based on a simple but dangerous manipulation of historical facts.

      What manipulation?

      The simple fact is that the Jews, unlike other conquered nations, had resisted Romans placing the statue of their emperor in the Temple (happy Chanukah, everyone!). There were a series of rebellions, and, after over hundred years of unrest Romans dispersed Jews from their native Judea. This started the migration and persecution of Jews all over the world.

      I think there is a definite link between the Jews and all other displaced and persecuted nations.

      Now we came home to our ancestral land. And this is a good example to the indigenous people everywhere.

      All SSI is doing is educating people. Good job!

  • Ten days of awe: standing with whom?
    • Android auto correct.


      But you got my drift.

    • Anal-ytically speaking, I am pushing deeper and deeper and I hope you don't enjoy it.

    • Amigo, did not your mother tell you not to trust a Zionist?

    • Jews rejected Canaanites' religion and culture - golden calf, Moloch, human sacrifices, etc.

      There no Canaanites nation today. As there are no Philistines, Summers, Romans, Khazars, etc. These nations - i.e. their culture, customs, language have disappeared.

    • Yes, loser, it sucks to be you.

    • @Keith

      What do you mean "maintain balance"?

      Why do they need to do it? So that they appear as "balanced"???

      I am totally against it. And I would love for everyone to see your dribble as it it invariably illogical and ill-informed.

    • I am not going to post here any more as my comments are being filtered out.

    • Well, little moserchik, like it or not, that's the way things are.

      And rest assured, sooner or later your "friends" will remind you and your fellow self-loving Jews of who you are despite all of your antisemitic efforts.

    • Contemporary Egyptians are not the same nation that lived in ancient Egypt.


    • Interesting!

      So, somehow Nazis could figure out six million times who was a Jew in order to murder that person, but you claim that Jews are indistinguishable from the rest of population.

      Are you a moron?

    • Relax, poor Moser! Israel will survive without you.

    • Sorry, Mu-Mu. Mondo does not let me expand on the anal theme.

    • So, in the same post you claim that not all Jews are the descendants of the converts, and then immediately claim that they are.

      Buzz off!

    • Your claim that all contemporary Jews are the descendants of past converts is just plain stupid.

      If there were concessions, it was the other way - Jews converting to other religions.

      The remaining Jews are the descendants of ancient Hebrews and are the oldest nation with the title to its ancestral land.

    • Apples and oranges, and then you switch to Iran.

      Name one nation whose claim to what is know today as Palestine is older than that of Jews.

    • HEBREW
      EBREI - Italian
      ЕВРЕЙ - Russian

      The root is obvious. Your long convoluted posts are a sign intellectual constipation periodically resulting in a verbal diarrhea.

    • I don't think it is a "little bubble". This sounds more like a sort of psychiatric deviation.

    • Palestinians are as indigenous to Palestine as Americans to America.

      If you realize that it is the Jews who are indigenous to the Land of Israel, then the whole argument of this article falls on its face.

  • Jews have religious commandment to support Israel and fight BDS -- American Jewish Committee
    • I believe Ireland has the right of return.

      BTW, not every Jew chooses to live in Israel.

      And it is the Jews who are indigenous to the Land of Israel AKA Palestine.

    • Elhaik's work has been long debunked.

      Time to change links...

    • Well, Mooser, it is one thing not to eat kosher, marry a shiksa so you kids won't be Jewish, and/or in whatever ways disconnect from the Jewish community.

      It is, however, totally different ballgame to scream on every corner that you are indeed a Jew and you oppose the only Jewish state. That's what earns you condemnation from fellow Jews.

    • nah, just showing that I dig your game.

    • Wrong again, Mu-Mu

      It is typically non-Jews who will tell you that you are Jewish, whether you like it or not.

    • nah, there are no palestinian land and "occupation" is a loaded word.

    • Ok, so you don't have "it". Not a big loss. You are not the first moser, nor the last.

      Jews are stubborn people. Only the most stubborn remain Jewish and feel belonging to the Jewish nation regardless of all the adversity.

      BTW, before someone goes through the giur, s/he is being continuously talked out of it. Only the most stubborn are accepted, as this is the only qualification. After all, only stiff-necked people could have survived centuries of persecution.

    • @eljay

      There are plenty of atheists who call themselves Jews. So much for your first argument.

      As for the rest - they are not even worth a comment.

    • Zionism is a secular movement and has nothing to do with Judaism.

      Zionism is not based on religion, but on the historic fact that Jews, as a nation, are indigenous to the area of what is known today as Palestine, that they were forcefully expelled from it, suffered all kinds of persecution, and that it is in Jewish national interest to have a nation state in Jewish ancestral land.

      Yes, there are Religious Zionists, who believe in "miracles", Divine Providence, etc. Mainstream Zionism has nothing to do with it.

      Mondoweiss screams that Jews "stole" land from Palestinians, and supporters of Israel, AJC included, feel that you can't steal what is rightfully yours.

      I think anybody who knows a bit of history would understand where the truth is.

  • Teenage girls in Gaza lament a 'double siege'
  • Wyden turns himself into a pretzel on free speech and Israel Anti-Boycott bill!
    • Moooooooooser,

      That's a load of bublichkis.

      We like to go in circles.

    • I have just read the bill. It says

      The bill prohibits any U.S. person engaged interstate or foreign commerce from supporting:

      any request by a foreign country to impose any boycott against a country that is friendly to the United States and that is not itself the object of any form of boycott pursuant to United States law or regulation, or

      any boycott fostered or imposed by any international governmental organization against Israel or any request by any international governmental organization to impose such a boycott.

      So, it does not prohibit any speech.

      Was not pretzel invented by Jews? Sounds Jewish to me...

  • Lessons from Finkelstein: International Law and equal rights should be the focus for Palestine solidarity
    • Poor Finkelstein...

      BTW, progressive could be anything. Like "progressive dementia".

    • There is a saying - if you are young and not liberal, you have no heart. If you are old and still a liberal, you have no brain.

      It seems that Finkelstein is getting older.

      And wiser.

      Not wise, but wiser...

  • American Jews have a right to resist Israel as Jews
  • As Israeli soldiers crushed Gaza, world Jewry united, and sent Ben & Jerry's ice cream to the front
    • Moser,

      If Jon S has any brains left, then after visiting this site he will be moving to the right.

      BTW, how is my spelling this time?

    • @Talking behind

      All your comments are nothing but hot stinky gasses.

      They are not the only company dealing with Jews who live in Judea and Samaria. The question was why they were selected.

      Understand the subject being discussed before shooting from your arse.

    • Looser,

      Work on your reading comprehension.

      Obviously, I was writing about Ben and Jerry, not myself and Jon.

    • I think it is very clear - Ben and Jerry's are Jews, and Jewish kapos hate strong Jews.

  • 'You are a Jew, you need to stand with the Jews': Peace activist Ariel Gold assaulted by settlers in Hebron
    • In my understanding of the world, self-loving is not the highest virtue.

    • In one of her videos Ariel Gold answers to a question if she is Jewish. She says she is a "better Jew".

      This is the key to understanding these Jews who are working against Israel - like provoking people and making videos, publishing all kinds of lies, etc. -- they are not self-hating, they are self-loving Jews.

  • Sorry, American Jews, you don't have a birthright
    • They have the right to the land - they hold the oldest deed.

    • There is sometimes some suggestion ...

      You have missed "somewhere".

      ... claim cannot be either true or a foundation of moral right

      "and" will work - it is true AND is a foundation of a moral right.

    • Again, the argument boils down to who is a Jew.

      In my opinion this has not much to do with religion. It used to play a significant part, but no more.

      So, sorry to tell you, Yossi, you are wrong from the get go and Zionists are right.

      Jews from all over the world are united by common history. This history teaches us of our common vulnerability. This vulnerability teaches us to support Israel - the only Jewish state existing in our ancestral land. God has absolutely nothing to do with it.

      Am Israel Chai!

  • BDS ban: Five Jewish, Muslim, and Christian leaders denied entry to Israel for supporting Palestinian human rights
    • Have you noticed that all liberal anti-Zionist Jews are Ashkenazi?

      The simple fact is that more than half of Israeli Jews are not European Jews, and they are much more to the right then the European ones, maybe with the exception of the Russian Jews.

      Again, shows that most of you have no idea about the real world and are driven by blind hatred.

    • That I can respect.

      If you are against Israel, don't try to go there, don't buy Israeli products, etc.

      By all means... We don't need your business.

    • genesto,

      If you are sick and tired, why don't you go to a psychiatrist?

    • The hypocricy of this article is absolutely hilarious!

      You work for destruction of a state and then complain that you can't visit it ?!?!

      Cry me a river!!!

  • Boteach likens Jews pushing for Palestinian state to Jews who helped Nazis
    • This comment is a typical antisemitic demagogic response of an ignoramus.

      Antisemitic because it is typical for an antisemite to blame Jews for their persecution.

      Demagogic because it attempts to switch the subject of this discussion.

      Ignoramus - because there are a lot of material on the subject - Timothy Snyder's " Bloodlands" that first comes to mind. Plus it is a well known that Ukrainians were murdering Jews long before the Holodomor - the artificial famine that had affected not only the Ukraine. And blaming the Jews for this famine is another example of antisemitism.

    • ... Boteach's article ...

    • I just finished reading Booth's article and NOWHERE he is making a connection between Jews who were forced to cooperate with Nazis and today's Jews who volunteer, as well as being paid, to work against Israel.

      I guess your guilty conscience is trying to talk to you...

      I just find her comment about "professional Jews" amusing.
