  • Videos: Brave Tamimi women of Nabi Saleh take down Israeli soldier assaulting injured child
    • What an immoral people, and this is what bernie sanders is defending/protecting? I'd love for bernie to man up and talk candidly about Israel. If he wants to be president of the USA he should tell us where he stands. Come clean Bernie, let your followers know. Maybe someone can ask him in the next town hall meeting.

  • Hockenberry skewers Menendez for double standard on Israeli nukes and killings of civilians
    • Salomon Melgin is in North Palm Beach, as is Epstein is south palm beach (his address is easily located since he's a sex offender).

      Here's another link on Menendez and the six degrees of separation to Epstein.

      "Last April, Epstein personally donated $2600 to the campaign of Gwendolyn Beck, an independent candidate in Virginia's 8th congressional district. He also gave $5000 to a political action committee controlled by Beck, who finished a distant third in November’s general election. Beck is pictured here accompanying U.S. Senator Robert Menendez to a 2010 White House state dinner."

    • Lol. Menendez is such a b/s artist - The audio is worth listening to as Hockenberry doesn't back down from his line of questioning.

      AIPAC and Co. must be looking at some way they can take Hockenberry down such a hard tone toward their best performing senator.

      Here's some recent news on Senator Menendez's problems:
      -----

      DOJ: Underage Prostitution Allegations Against Robert Menendez Backed By ‘Corroborating Evidence’

      -And you wonder if Jeffery Epstein is linked to all the underage prostitutes. His forte was to lure wealthy/political people to his sex traffic island. Same case with Bill Clinton.

  • Congressman Ted Lieu, are you really in bed with AIPAC?
  • Defying Obama on Iran deal, Schumer cites Hamas
    • At this point it does seem like posturing, but I am surprised that the new senate leader would betray the president of the USA and the democratic party. Many news site comments, left or right, are calling this for what it is.

      If it fails, they should take back the Pollard bonus.

  • Pelosi says Iran deal has the votes, and Podhoretz urges Israel to attack Iran
    • It's scary to think about it. - I could see some gov't nut
      falling on the sword to eliminate more enemies of Israel.

      and since their nuke program is classified, we don't even know what
      the protocols are for launching one. I assume a host of clearances
      are req'd, but who knows in crazy town.

    • They could never use nukes. It would be over for them and would completely
      dismantle the apartheid state of Israel.

  • MSM avoids central Pollard question: Did Israel trade secrets to Soviets for emigres?
    • Pollard being released is more fuel for the fire. Here's a zinger of a comment on newsweek:

      'Forest Hunter – that Jew's throat should be slit from ear to ear … and then handed over to the Israeli's. '

      Yikes! – Yoni Pollard sure aint no Alfred Dreyfus affair. But give it a century, and he may be the victim. Hollywood is set to commission a film based on the Jonathan Pollard case.

      link to jpost.com

    • I thought the same thing - dump some unwanted stock (pollard) at the worst
      possible time for the 'so called' ally. Comments online about traitor Pollard
      are pretty wicked and a sticky wicket for Israel's followers.

      But a lot of Zios support the release like Dersh, etc. So who knows.

  • 'This is our Israel, this is for the Jews. No Palestinian should come to Israel': A Palestinian-American's story of being detained at Ben Gurion airport
  • Video: Israelis in West Jerusalem call for attack on Iran
    • A deranged cult in the heart of the Arab world. But US pols continue to underwrite this mess because of zionist dollars. How corrupt.

  • Angela Merkel makes a 14-year old Palestinian girl cry by telling her she is not welcome in Germany
    • stogie god? ~ is that like king of beer

      If you believe Germany needs to continue to pay for Israel’s crimes, no doubt you think that the USA should endlessly fund Israel’s defense. By this logic, if Israel manages to survive, the Jewish state will be paying for their crimes well into the 22nd century. Hasn’t Germany paid enough for holocaust reparations? Accept responsibility for your Jewish homeland, instead of expecting an entitlement from western nations. Furthermore, Zionist Jews in Europe had their eyes on Palestine before Hitler ever rose to power. You should check your privilege. (I was interested in a response from Scott, not your jerk-off insults.)

      October1937 - David Ben Gurion writes to his son —“What we really want is not that the land remain whole and unified. What we want is that the whole and unified land be Jewish. A unified Eretz Israel would be no source of satisfaction for me– if it were Arab.”

    • Perhaps I'm misunderstanding you, but are you implying that because of Germany's role war in WWII 70+ years later, Germany should absorb the Palestinian refugees because of Israel's continued displacement of them?

      What about the right of return?
      It's been said "The palestinians are the last victims of Hitler", which is such bogus deflection.

  • California students resist authorities’ attempt to conflate criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism
    • No other group of any type in the world devotes so much time (any time really) to claiming people hate them and creating groups to sniff out anyone who may hate them and to dwelling on events from hundreds and thousands of years ago that enforce this worldview.

      And now with hate crime laws in effect, pushed by the ADL, we are in a new realm of reality.
      Seems like the hate charge lurks everywhere in the MSM, Huff Post type commentary, and youth freely lob accusations of who is a hater. What a pre-programmed society we live in.

      I suppose BDS will be associated with hate soon enough. Wait for it...

    • great point.

      Last month I read an article by Rabbi Alissa Wise of JVP , explaining in her youth she visited 3 extermination camps in her Jewish youth program. (and explains that her mentors blamed Christianity in part for it). This is more common than I thought for America Jewish kids to engage in this victim/indoctrination, as it solidifies their Zionist character development. Israel students also make annual trips to Auschwitz for similar indoctrination (see film Defamation).

      Alissa Wise: "In High School, I visited Auschwitz, Majdonek and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps with my Jewish youth movement. We were told stories of how the Christian world was complicit in Nazism and their crimes. I sobbed and wailed at each visit to the camps, horrified and disturbed. I knew then my life would be about interrupting today’s violence and hatred however I could."

    • So the international zionists that work for Israel abroad, deem it necessary to change the US law instead of telling Israel to adhere to international laws & ending their 6 decade occupation?

      Seems like the actions of a desperate cult, who scoffs at the current system of US laws, but yet we have the leading democratic candidate Hillary joining hands with Republicans to publicly oppose BDS.

      What kind of world will we live in 15 years time? It's frightening to think about it if nothing changes.

  • Hillary Clinton promises megadonor she will work with Republicans-- to oppose BDS
    • Kucinich had more integrity than any candidate in both parties today, but the media trashed him as an undeveloped man of sorts.

      Also Ron Paul won a straw poll debate a few years ago, and Fox news, edited him from the top slot. It was grounds for a lawsuit, and really trashy standards for Fox, but the other media outlets said little to nothing about it.

  • 'Fresh Air' turns a critique of the occupation into an Oedipal issue
    • Strange how the diaspora Zionists like Gross, are quicker to sweep discussion under the rug than an Israeli like Moverman.

      Hopefully oneday Moveman can produce a film about the occupation that captures the essence of its rotten, stinking reality.

  • Netanyahu likens BDS to Nazi Germany
    • 'Try as I can, I can’t actually think of any other defense.'

      When you get caught by someone, the usual mode for the rest of
      society is to admit that you were caught. I was remarking
      that Israel uses the tactic of 'blame someone else somewhere'.

      That tactic is shady and irresponsible, and it's no wonder why
      Israel has really no allies in the world. You think after 60+ years
      existing in the Arab world they'd have maybe one true ally.

      Why is it they have none?

    • It's deceptive and cynical Israeli politicians at work using
      judo-like political techniques to white wash their corrupt state.

      The position of the Israeli gov't seems to be when you're in a corner
      accuse someone else of something worse i.e. play offense. They usually
      accuse Muslims for everything, but BDS is their next target.

      This will motivate the US congress to write laws against BDS, as Congress
      is the collective handmaiden of the Jewish State- they change the curtains when Israel asks them for cover. All brought to you by American Jewish Zionism.

    • Last time I checked BDS isn't the one with a Auschwitz-Birkenau Gazan prison camp.

      Israel leaders have only become more duplicitous as decades
      of occupation have passed, and it shows us where Israel is headed.

  • 'You have dual citizenship with Israel' -- NPR host hits Sanders with internet canard
    • B’nai Brith: "...whether he is also an Israeli citizen reinforces tropes that Jews are first and foremost loyal to Israel. "

      Those tropes are often the truth. Look at Schmuly Boteach running for Congress. That man clearly is more pro-Israel than pro-American, which is why he was routed in the election in 2012. Voters went 3 to 1 for the other candidate.

  • Front-page attack in New York Times says BDS movement is driven by minorities' 'hostility toward Jews'
    • you're right about Phil's concern. He has said so at the outset of this blog.
      Israel is embarrassing to the progressive agenda of many American Jews, but has extended to every political American sphere of politics. This is decades of suppression. Imagine being in the democratic part like like Kucinich, and trying to carry water for Israel apartheid.

    • I.M., this thread is getting way too long, but if 60% of American Jews favor boycott (1%+-/-)
      that should be indicative for the cross section of the American public, although the media encourages people's humdrum opinions. (I watch CNN Wolf Blitzer twice a week).

      A boycott is a healthy alternative to another Gaza slaughter.

    • BDS in it's current state is an ineffective tactic. It would be comparable to the world boycotting the USA, but only really boycotting Montana.

      I could not find the stats on this, but what percent of Israel GDP is being boycotted? It's probably under 2%. (Israel global GSP is about .05%)

      Here's the website Algemeiner boasting how ineffective BDS has been last decade:
      link to algemeiner.com

      If BDS is going to be an effective tool against the occupation, why not go whole hog?
      boycotting is also a scare tactic, that will encourage those within Israel to do something.
      Imagine an art exhibit by Israelis is not permitted in many nations. Israelis then feel the door is closing on them - being shunned for a rotten state. It encourages them to change, their wicked direction of their government.

      (ckg - I understand your position, but I think BDS can be more. why would people engage in a boycott that only boycotts less than 5% of the systemic problem)

    • ckg,

      In the political realm, it may be difficult to get the votes for full BDS, but do you think the results would be different? I'd venture to say likely not. If a large growing group threatens Israel with a complete boycott, it will encourage those inside Israeli (universities, political orgs, youth) to step up their game and fight against a seemingly ever dominating fascist government.

      This boycott around the edges is confusing to the average person outside the realm of truly understanding of the conflict. A complete BDS effort against the state of Israel, will hasten their occupation that is dragging on for Decades! Israelis should start to worry about full BDS because it is going to happen sooner or later, because their leadership is asunder and corrupt with racism, and not to mention their Napoleonic complex.

    • Blaine is correct. A total boycott for the State of Israel is required,
      and none of this around the edges crap that is too hard for most
      people to understand what to and what not to boycott.

      And once (if ever) Israelis clean up their sloppy occupation and
      land grabs, then the boycott can be lifted.

  • Rudoren covers up Shaked's genocidal statements in 'NYT'
    • C-God, excellent idea that I've thought about for years. Nytimes pretends to be a liberal newspaper, but if they had a Muslim columnist who shared their experiences in the Arab realm, it would undermine the delicate narrative that Zionism is victim in the Arab world.
      Picking Jodi after Bronner was a clear sign they were choosing a neophyte who they could shape to become Israel's stenographer. It was a like a band aid on a leaking pipe to select her - NYTimes is desperate to shape the perception that Israel is the victim, not the aggressor, in Palestine/Israel conflict.
      But it's refreshing to continually see that all of the Times readers, when allowed to comment, side against the State of Israel that we see today.

  • Forgiving the anti-Semites
    • Great point. It would be like every time I go to an Indian reservation to get some smokes, I would have to apologize for Wounded Knee.

  • Graham and Rubio are dependent on pro-Israel money in bid for White House
    • doesn't matter who they are. They are part of the chorus of the
      pro-Israel beltway gospel.

      They'll steer the debates with their Likud agenda.

  • When it comes to untrustworthiness, the U.S. trumps Iran
    • Imagine any media pundit and/or guest trying to debate this list
      in the television realm?

      They wouldn't have a job the following day. USA, home of the free
      and the brave!

  • Rand Paul greeted by neocon opposition, in $1 million ad calling him 'dangerous'
    • True. I think Hillary should wait as long as possible to announce, because I can see her numbers sinking as we move forward. She's the establishment and part of some deranged Clintonian legacy crap that is eerily reminiscent of the Bushes. I feel like the feudal oligarchy has been
      foisted upon us.

      Americans don't see it but the world does see how we reelect families now. what a bore.

  • Mondoweiss Exclusive: One on One with Rep. Steve Israel
    • Agree, I could see how Adam's article about Netanyahu was clearly satire, but is this interview?

      I don't know much about Steve Israel, but did this interview take place, because it could
      sort of come off as slander, putting false words in his mouth, etc.

      Anywho - can Scott clarify if the interview is truth or not?

    • That was a joke by the Congressman I suppose - Jewish humor at its best. The more he got into the interview it was like watching another personality evolve like Sybil rearing her multiple personality disorder. Even it were a joke to him, he basically laughed in the interviewer's face.

      But, joke or not he sounded like two faced Congressman of the highest order. Probably a phony Liberal Zionist, but a Likud-bwoy at heart. First he's apologizing for his Israel-First positions and then at the end he's calling the USA president (of his own party) 'Hussein', and then concludes that he's only loyal to Israel.

      Watch your back Obama, Chuck Shumer and his Mensheviks are sharpening their blades while your trying to make a peace with the Persians to avoid another Neocon War.

  • Video: Max Blumenthal on the ways Zionism exploits anti-Semitism
    • Zionists can't accept the fact that they've destroyed the Arab levant prior to Israel's creation (they only see what they want to see within their own group-centered development). Zionists only care about what's good for themselves, while Israelis ignore the reality of the place they are in, the Arab sphere.

      Get real though. Imagine an unending stream of Russians coming to Connecticut pushing out all the indigenous and saying 'it's our land now'. What a foreign act of usurping it would be! And surely Massachusetts and New York, etc would have big problems with the mess from these occupying hordes. But this goes on for 60+ years and the Israelis continue to want more. And all people like you do is make excuses for their crimes! sick...

    • Great point. All the zionists gutted the levant, alienated the Arab world with their ever expanding borders, and yet somehow feel as though they are the victim of it all. It's such a boring story where the aggressor plays the eternal victim.

      The need to drop the act, and fess up to their crimes.

  • 12 pretty good signs you're vacationing in an apartheid country
    • great format to convey the story - and trolls will have a harder time dissecting this type of format, because it's first hand observation and doesn't fit into their worn out hasbara playbook rebuttals.

  • American Jews are taking back their power from Israel
  • I want my country back
    • Is this more of the establishment Jews taking controlling of the narrative that
      you predicted a few days ago? They are not going to do it! They are worthless,
      ineffective, and dishonest with themselves. A diaspora cult that is more odd
      each day passing.

      Come on, stop pretending that Rudoren wasn't a hand picked Brooklyn
      apparatchik, as this article is a further example of her stenography on display.

  • Who can save Israel now?
    • I think he refers to Phil's attempt to shine a light on Israel and get it to change,
      but it can't be changed any longer. They've reached the point of no return. lol
      Sad, what a waste to have went full-bore cult on the world.
      Today Israel's ziocane is 99.9% pure

  • It was a bad week for the Israel lobby
    • The Israel story is such a tired tale, everyone is fatigued. It's probably time that the usurpers surprise us all and talk about a 1967 return and even more. You can't come in and take valuable archaeological sites and call them your own - it's an obvious and boring display of charlatanism.

      The idea of 'Israel' could have been a good one, but they royally botched it and chose the wrong site for the 'promised land' in the heart of the Arab world which they seem to despise. Cant they see their plan is backfiring? I dunno... Give them 20 more years and the ruling party in Israel will be called Brothers of Masada.

  • Netanyahu's consciousness-raising
  • 'NYT' reports 'surge of hostile sentiment against Jews' nationwide -- on what basis?
    • Bigot? I recall you want Jerusalem as the undivided capitol of Israel, which means eradicating Palestinians from their city. ~Actual that's more about blind support of a criminal action than bigotry. But it's standard fare for zealots.

  • WSJ columnist says 'I'm almost grateful' for attack on kosher supermarket that killed four
    • "You could make a seperate point that the Islamic world has been falling behind generally, and that’s correct."

      [I think you meant to say 'i could']

      If the Islamic world is falling behind, is the Judaic World at the very forefront of the global system then? Because I think about the occupation and blatant connivance of the Jewish state (its occupation & ethnic cleansing, etc). If you think back, there were more Islamic contributions to Medieval Europe than Jewish contributions.

  • Israeli voters not impressed by Netanyahu's speech to Congress
    • thanks for the great video

      28 is too young, no wonder he is so zio addicted.
      Anthony Weiner is about the same brainwave freq.

      The part about birth control and multiplying as they wish is racist.
      but hops can probably put lipstick on it.

    • Yahu's performance in the Halls of Congress makes our 'unwavering' alliance (USA/Israel) seem like a cheap and embarrassing relationship. They give us squat and come here to berate us and ask for more.

      Imagine some punter-satellite nation's leader going to Moscow and berating Putin in front of the Council of Ministers while Putin sat in his office? It wouldn't happen. China must be laughing with Russia, with the rest of the world.

      This desperate relationship seems to have turned to a rejected stalker relationship. I can't determine what kind of stalker relationship we are in, but you can decide pixel ;D link to sapac.umich.edu Yahu comes off as the rejected stalker in my mind. lol

  • Media are stunned by Congress's 'loyalty' to Netanyahu (but refuse to explain it)
    • Thanks. If the US news wasn't so entirely corrupt, we would have probably have similar headlines.

    • At least you're in Ireland...

      I would think after all that fawning, the leader of the Jewish people may be emboldened to expand his occupation and settlements even quicker. And get this they filled the empty seats with staffers and Gingrich types so it could be one grand celebration.

    • When I heard him mention Purim and Ester, it's clear he sees the US as a proxy for Israel's military problems.

      Do you think that the media will every connect the rally to war for Iran with the Iraq war? Netanyahu was the doing the selling, but last time it was to Congress in 2002.

      Read the Transparent Cabal to understand the agents of war, are the same as today.

  • Warren's out, as list of skippers surges, and White House offers Selma for Iran
    • Susan Rice and her Selma analogies was pretty weak. Here's one infographic to the segregated roads in Israel. link to visualizingpalestine.org Segregation Roads.

    • I like how she uses her son, and Selma as political tools. These politicians and their handlers sound very similar in message making. Listen to Samantha Powers, it's very similar at the outset.

      Susan Rice:
      "I brought one of those young people with me, my seventeen year-old son Jake,
      who insisted he had to come to AIPAC... "

      Most seventeen year old really want to get into the AIPAC soiree. Such a monumental event that is invisible to 95% of the american public.

  • Bipartisanship is dead, as Netanyahu, AIPAC, and GOP square off against Obama over Iran
    • Yahu's speech was average. He must have toned to down to appease the leftists at AIPAC.
      They know they don't want to sever that umbilical cord that feeds Israel the endless gov't pork and guarantees.

      It's clear that the US can never be a serious negotiator of peace after this garish cult of personality performance. Seems like the idea of the USA (beacon of liberty, honesty, etc)
      is over. We're all just rearranging the deck chairs of the titanic - talking about change.

  • Kerry says Netanyahu was wrong the last time he pushed war for the U.S.
    • Walid, It's time to move on from this hoax. Who believes it except probably
      congresspeople? They probably use J Street to counter the angry calls
      from constituents. I could see them saying 'I support J Street'. Anyway
      J Street should be proud, they gave the occupation another 5 years, and
      perhaps more.

    • Good point about J Street - as they don't even realize they are looking like Israel Firsters. with their obtuse advert. But J Street was always controlled opposition from DAY 1 - similar to Jodi Rudoren being picked as replacement for Eitan Bronner was when she was selected Jerusalem bureau chief for The New York Times. ~All window dressing really.

      If it's all so rigged, then why do so many people refer to the same false choices as offering a choice? This hoax will go on for another decade...

      It's clear to see Israel is a sinking ship, in so many ways, but no zionist wants to tell the tribe they've steered way off course. I would feel some sorrow for them if they weren't so evil to Palestinians - turning off their power in the freezing winter only a few days ago after they bombed them into the stone ago last summer.

  • Israel turns off power to hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in the dead of winter
    • At this point it would be better to see Israel dismantled or to return to the 1948 borders with serious reparations to the Palestinians/Arabs and/or whomever they've made a living hell to these last 60+ years. Even though their occupation is a rotting stench around the globe, the media manages to make it smell much more pleasant in the US.

  • Israel's new Asian allies
  • Congress flooded with letters urging members to #SkipTheSpeech of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu
    • 'More than 30 members of Congress have already publicly or privately committed to #SkipTheSpeech'

      how heroic...

      Between the house and senate members there's only about
      500 more remaining to convince not to go.

      Prime Minister Obama should offer a rebuttal to Viceroy Netanyahu's appearance. That
      would be one way to stand the ground of the President of the United States. The beltway politicians don't see how obviously craven they are behaving, because the are way too inside the bubble of Washington, but the rest of the world will see it as an unprecedented performance of the ungrateful beggar nation at our door who we should have told too piss off decades ago.

      Do you think oneday they will stop bilking us and walk on their own damn feet to independence? Are we the nanny state for Israel? Seems like it will never end and it probably won't.

  • Americans oppose Netanyahu invite 2-to-1, but Dershowitz is all for it
    • The poll doesn't really show any change, as the second question is more telling:

      In the Middle East conflict, do you think the United States should take Israel's side, take the
      Palestinians' side, or not take either side?

      Feb. 12-15 2015 | May 24-26 2011*
      Israel’s side 29% 32%*
      Palestinians' side 2% 1%*
      Not take either side 66% 65%*
      No opinion 3% 2%*

      What 's more gloomy is that because the media has been echoing that a Netanyahu visit to Congress may not be so good, those surveyed seemed to respond in kind, while question #2 shows that nothing has changed in the minds of the American public.

  • Warren supporters can't talk about Palestine
    • "I am simply pointing out that keeping quiet about the elephant in the room or the bull rampaging through the china shop is simply eminent good sense for a politician."
      -It sure is Bryan. the real crux is how do we change this complex problem? The politicians will always rely on the donor to fund their moneyed campaigns, meanwhile the grassroots can't complete, or fail to do so on a level that can counter the donor.

    • I challenge 'progressives' when the opportunity is there, and often I get a lot of tropes like, 'well, I'm not qualified to comment on the IP situation' and yet they may have been some of the biggest critics of GWB policy not a decade ago. I try to explain the linkage between the Iraq invasion and the second call to war for Iran. It's right out in front of everyone in plain sight - i.e. clean break strategy, securing the realm.

      There's a grand dishonesty that everyone is afraid to touch, and more often they would pretend that it's a small side issue that doesn't concern them. They could be correct, I mean why should we care? I should enjoy my life. Especially when most of this topic is taboo. Why study it, when I can talk about cinema or fashion?

      I think I'd rather hear Dersh and Judy Judy dialogue here - in the least they won't trip over their scripts and they'd say it from their hearts. Fox deserves blame surely, but so do all of the media empires in the US.

  • Dear Mr. Netanyahu, please don't cancel your speech
    • Menendez was never a Zionist or a CZ for that matter. He only started with this pro-Zion bit since he got in to office and is likely because his reelection money coffers depend on it, and there is reason to believe that he may being blackmailed for all his affairs, as it's easier to control a politician if you have dirt on their past.

      Is there's a record of Menedez and his Judeo-Christian and pro Israel stance 5 years before he came to office? I don't think he was that type of guy.

    • Democrats must be worried about where they are going to get their fundraising from if they come out against hard against Netanyahu, so they all slowly & meekly line up one by one and say they are not going to attend. And the president must be impressed with this display of solidarity (kidding) within his party... he must be awestruck how they scurry like scared chickens when the political whip of AIPAC is cracked and then run to the trough of campaign cash when they demand a vote.

      Their caucus seems more concerned about how they can survive without the tainted PAC money, than banding together as a cohesive group for once in their worn-out group existence. The problem is that they don't really practice what they believe in, except tropes about being liberal, and even that is suspect more often. Their long track record of sucking-up to the apartheid regime is based in great part due to the traditional money donor base that funds them.

      If Netanyahu makes it to these shores, Democrats will likely prove what craven lackeys they are to PAC money and Zionism's corrupted coffers. Hopefully a greater swath of Americans can see the ruse for what it is.

  • A cosmopolitan's regrets: Roger Cohen on the Jewish condition
    • Keith,

      You're correct it was Bruce Wolman - my mistake. What caught my attention is how Homphi implies that you are a bitter non Jew [“Did some Jew turn you down for a job, Keith?] but then you call Sean an anti-Semite. Anyway, I thought it was a good example of political correctitude in action, like the guard kicking the dog who in turn, bites the intruder. something like that...

    • Keith taking SeanMcBride to the woodshed! Funny Keith, i remember years ago how David Green(?) found some screed you wrote against the Jews on your blog and posted it here. Then you were doing damage control.

    • "That doesn’t mean Jews and Gentiles can’t or don’t get along. It does mean, however, that Jews historically have been unable to rely on their Gentile brethren for communal safety and protection..."

      -Now theres's an idiotic & tribalist comment, as it assumes all gentiles had worked together for centuries, but it's sort of like saying today 'all those white people'. I think the comment is intended to gain pity on the tribe and you were unaware what a sloppy idea you laid out (more reflective of an ethnotcentric point of view).

      It's then fair to say that Israel should have protected the innocent Gazan civilians who were accidentally slaughtered by the IDF in 2014. [i.e. Palestinians historically have been unable to rely on their Jewish brethren for communal safety and protection]

      I'll ask the question again, in case it's lost. In which century and which (subgroups) of gentiles should have protected Jews?

  • Biden will skip Netanyahu's speech
    • Bigger global threats must observe the USA government and laugh.
      Probably think it's only a waiting game as politicians
      have to watch their own backs first.

      Reelection first, patriotism second! Long live Israel...

    • I’m sure the enthusiasm shown by her colleagues will be too contagious to not engage in the merriment.

    • House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says the invitation was a mistake,
      but she's going to attend the speech?

      While democrats have a reputation to upkeep as being spineless quislings,
      I didn't think they'd stab their own president in the back by attending this speech.

  • John Lewis tells D.C. crowd he will not attend Netanyahu speech
    • And what will the other 187 democratic house members do? Will republican members skip out also?

      For who wants to hear an arrogant windbag 'viceroy' grandstand on how we need to give them more support, when they give us a big fat goose egg in return? Perhaps if they were shipping back gold bars to the empire, but I don't think the bastard colony has given us anything of value in the last half century.

  • Chair of Democratic National Committee opposes Jewish intermarriage and MSNBC showing Gaza carnage
    • I'm not sure if I'd attribute it Muslim immigrants.

      Poll: British People Dislike Israel More Than Iran - (refer to page 12) link to chathamhouse.org

      which of the following do you feel especially unfavourable towards? in 2012 Israel was at 18% in 2014 it was at 35%. (2nd place/ N. Korea is remains the highest at 47%)

    • Hi Pixel, This comment was so detached from mine, I'm surprised I found it. As there's a lot of other interesting things in this world, the Israel occupation seems to be a never-ending issue because Israelis are never going to 'feel'' safe and diaspora zionists will always bend the arm of the global politicial class. We could likely talk about this for 4 more decades, as I'm not sure it will ever end.

    • I think that often what bigots feel inside their gut or their kishkes is often bigotry, so they envision everyone having these prejudices, because deep inside they are full of prejudice/bigotry. The anecdote about his dead friend being ‘dissed’ by goyim is really unnecessary if even true.

    • I think the point here is also that the pro-Israel network seems too often to lack the capacity as a group to be self-reflective, all the while aiming to use their trademarked 'antisemitism' (racism) stamp on anything that remotely may seem dubious to their group advancement.

      And notice how Richard Cohen runs to his 'scientific' charts to formulate an equation. Imagine some waspy org. doing the same thing. Cohen and Co. would denounce them as bigots of the highest order.

  • The New England Patriots and Israel
    • That Myra quote I remember well, as it hard not to forget a team like the Patriots is run by Owners who make 'Israel first' comments such as hers:

      -"I would hate to have one of my sons fighting [in Iraq for the U.S.]. Iran’s the problem, not Iraq. But, as far as fighting for Israel is concerned, there is no problem."

      I knew Edelman was 1/2 Jewish (raised Catholic), but for him to put the pin on his hat is sappy politicking no better than Sarah Palin. What's he running for political office? In the least we won't always have to hear those harping on about Sandy Koufax when it comes to sports now.

  • Since when is the Southern Poverty Law Center a pro-Israel organization?
    • Al Jazeera is producing some documentaries that wouldn't be able to be produced in the USA. The main one being 'the Day Israel Attacked America' (the USS liberty bombing by Israel Air Force) and another one "World War One Through Arab Eyes" gave a good understanding of the Arab world, slowly losing it's power beginning last century.

    • Thanks Karl for your insight -be advised, the more you peel back the layers, the more unsavory it becomes. - and many people who you explain your perspective to, could care less - even if they are supposed liberals.

      Read the other papers, Al Jazeera, RT, etc. - compare and contrast. Only way to change ideas, but most people can't afford the time to do so.

  • Video: Racist Israel supporter films himself attacking Toronto students, urinating on BDS poster
    • true, this man exhibits all the classic signs of a ziocane bender.

    • Ritzl,
      I listened to it once more, and although he seems to believe he's been made deputy of the local hate crimes division, he still sounds nervous. And that could be for acting like such a dumb-dumb in general. Who threatens people and destroys their property, all the while filming it and then posting it? Only G-ds ch-sen people could be so bold.

      They should have some sort of emergency station at the campus where he (although not a student) can quickly strap on some tefillin to decompress, as he seems to be on some sort of jihadist bender. The Canadians should really be more accommodating to his insecurities, I'd say.

    • Did he use the camera so in case he met some opposition & they beat him to a pulp
      he could cry antisemitism?

      So much nervousness in his voice, and hatred against them Ay-rabs, but he should know
      it isn't just Arabs who endorse BDS, the list is growing every month.

      Wait to see his mugshot. Seems an important next step if his Jewish community in Canada
      will condemn his actions publicly or will they be silent and exhibit a secret shared pride
      at what this Sabra has done.

  • Shit dead rabbis say about gentiles
    • Isn't that kind of like 'blaming the troops' for the Neocon's American foreign policy?

    • Citizen, I remember not only the abuse of animals at Agriprocessors, but the overworked immigrants who would lose their arms in machines, there were even cases of rape of the employees by the management (knowing they were illegal they sure took advantage). Good Cheer, until the Feds came and busted it all up.

    • This embarrassing comment feels like someone who could make apologies for slavery. 'Ya know, those slave owners weren't so bad really. It was the situation and all that which made them sometimes cruel...they saw the world in black & white...' -12 years a Gentile...

    • I never understood this grudge that Rabbis seem to often exhibit. Is it the vengeance of the shtetl mindset, sitting in the Pale Settlement, wishing they were being serviced by their gentile servant.

      I guess every religion loves to fantasize, but why do people like say Senator Corey Booker, fall in love with Chabad when the leaders speak this way?

  • Independent investigation details Israel's deliberate targeting of civilians in Gaza
    • I haven't been following closely enough to the media anymore, since so much dis-information emanates from it's echo chambers, but the 2014 summer slaughter of Gaza was much worse than January 2009's Operation Cast Lead. There was so much more obvious cruelty inflicted on the Gaza prison camp, as the 2014 Israeli military operation (killing spree) targeted hospitals this time around (I recall about 9), as opposed to 2009 when it only targeted the singular flour mill in Gaza. That flour mill was something Judge Richard Goldstone wrote about in his extensive report, but retracted his report due to pressures inside the Jewish world.

      The Israeli military destroyed nearly 1/4 of the infrastructure of Gaza, aided by it's government while the cheering public watched from the distant hills. This recent destruction has led to the recent deaths of Gazan babies freezing to death. The feeling of destitution must be unimaginable, as politics play out with AIPAC greasing all the US poiticians and politicos. And of course here, the Liberal Zionists will tell you how they really understand the conditions of Gazans, because they've had grandparents who survived similar prison camp experiences, and very well know the quality of suffering all the while, defending the occupiers who continue to take the lives and livelihood of Palestinians because they somehow deserve it more.

  • Netanyahu speech scandal blows up, and 'soiled' Dermer looks like the fall guy
    • Funny comparison Jones, although the AIPAC lackeys will say Netanyahu never took them out back and shot them dead. Yahu isn't half the orator that Stalin was, or Mao for that matter, so Congress, As Walters says, gets paid to perform and stand up to his Israel-centric speeches. Can't wait to see this next one though in the congress. I'll wager side bets with you on who claps and stands up the most.

    • David, At least we can laugh about these political topics, and good analysis you put forward.
      It's interesting to see that Israel and it's leaders seem to have more power when the issues are buried by Congress & the complaint American media, but as soon as Netanyahu makes a 'big' move he has to show the world what his next move will be - and it's not so easy for him now, especially with that macho Israel election looming in the near future!
