  • The Second Coming of the Holocaust
    • All I can think of for some reason is, what would a cigar store jew look like? I think a missing Seinfeld episode?

      What does "Never Again!" mean these days?

  • Just like the Nazis, Iran 'plans to exterminate six million Jews' -- Netanyahu
    • hophmi is the biggest pot I've even encountered calling the kettle black. In attempting to diagnose Phil, he diagnoses his own projecting mentality. HIs whole spiel here is a gaggle of very factually deficient accusations., the most repetitive banal gross lies in the Zionist catalogue. PS: Bibi also reportedly said recently the worse fear he has is Iran would honor the Iran Deal.

  • When it comes to untrustworthiness, the U.S. trumps Iran
    • I don't see why US thinks it can do all that & get away with it--Russia can piss with the best of them on nuclear stockpiles & although a significant number of Russians don't like Putin, they are educated very well on the hypocritical and ruthless nature of US governments.

  • Obama got Senate to reject 'two of Netanyahu's demands' on Iran (but the 'NYT' won't touch that angle)
    • From dailykos:

      Senator Coons offered a new definition of what a "bad deal" is in the context of the amended bill:

      "If the administration can't persuade 34 senators of whatever party that this agreement is worth proceeding with, then it's really a bad agreement," Senator Chris Coons of Delaware, a Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, said. "That's the threshold."
      So now we only have to convince 34 out of 100 Senators that it's ok to proceed? Ouch, AIPAC, you really hurt me. "Don't throw me in that briar patch."

    • 13 Democrats signed the Corker bill.

    • Looks like AIPAC's Cotton Kids won: Iran's response to Congressional intervention compromise Obama caved into is "No deal unless no sanctions."

      Simultaneous breaking news blurb overnight: "Israel applauds US deal."

    • This is a disgusting disappointment. The Isrsel Firsters in Congress (rabid Jewish Zionist & whores for Adelson-type billions) have clearly let the world know that US diplomacy promises are never set in stone, can be changed in the blink of an eye--why should anyone in the world want to negotiate diplomatically with the USA when it is in the hands of those who are not de facto representatives of the American voting public? Congress gets a hernia straining to block any avoidance of war on Iran, while simultaneously, Congress totally ignores US wars against ISIS in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen, and also ignores what's happening in Aghanistan and ignores the push toward war with Russia via Ukraine & de facto NATO/Israel?

  • Pro-Israel group concedes that Tel Aviv bikinis can't match 'justice' as sirensong to brightest young Jews
    • New Poll shows Israel will be a public voter issue for the first time in run for next POTUS: link to

      Not just young American Jews are finally focusing on Israel as a voting issue--looks like US politics may no longer end at the ocean's edge.

    • The true story of the Jewish people? Where do I go to read or hear it? I can't even get an English translation of 200 Years Together, which was written by a world acclaimed novelist. I'd read it in German but my German is very rusty.

      I remember, growing up as a kid, that romantic painting of Custer's Last Stand, but it certainly has changed over the years since now it's just a snickering joke.

  • Obama's long & passionate Monday with Saban, Foxman, Hoenlein and other Jewish leaders demonstrates power of Israel lobby
    • AIPAC shows it's grand power within the US plutocratic government and its pivotal gear, the US campaign finance system--follow the money.

    • I guess,unfortunately for those who like a simple picture, Zionism is one form of Judaism, somewhere in the strain between "Everybody's made in God's Image" and Talmudic theory on Goys with lesser, more animal souls? Toss in the Holocaust, the Nakba, what do we get? A former Israeli jazz man? Or son of a top Israeli leader, speaking at the last Conference on Israel rejected for show by CSPAN?

    • LOL. The AIPAC dollars are not free, no more than Adelson's, Soros's. Sabam's. Koch Bros's are those dollars all demand that one assume Israel does nothing but defend itself against whomever the latest AIPAC-labled Hitier is. Bibi's recent speech, a recent subject on this web site , incapsulates the Zionist mentality. What's missing is informed consent by Dick and Jane--instead we get hasbasra on US mainstream news shows, 24/7…

    • Divide & Conquer & By Way Of Deception--Israel always pull out all stops; the problem is, US rubber-stamp is getting blurred--Russia, China, India, the alternatives to the petro dollar rule & Greece as just the beginning of a blowback from the way the global 1% operate….US acts like it's not deeply in debt to, say China, and as if our tired Hessian Army can do a neo-Battle of the Bulge--has Hillary called for all females of age to register for the draft, on pain of losing out on Fed Pell & other grants? LOL. She's driving to Maumee, Ohio & entering Mexican fast tood places incognito….& parroting very vaguely Warren's populist attack on big banking! It will only get worse, much worse, for the average American--Palestinians? They don't exist!

    • Outdated missile system; no existential threat at all to Israel who always has latest defense & aggression war systems, courtesy of US MOM (Memo of understanding).

    • Yeah, it does: lotsa $

    • Yeah, you're right, huge Zionist donations to any American politician parroting hasbara does not matter, nor does deprivation of same from critics of Israel. Follow the money has no meaning in the US political arena.

    • Interesting that while Establishment Jewish leaders in USA form a matrix of very powerful interest so that Obama has to court them & US congress has to bow to the Israeli leader in public, and in the Congress domain itself, despite this mirroring of The Protocals, there's so little anti-semitism in the USA. I mean, how far does this have to go before the fiction-fact thing turns on a light bulb over the 98% of non-Jewish America? And then what?

    • US main media is full of criticism of the NRA while AIPAC is never criticize there.

  • Gunter Grass became 'persona non grata' for 2012 poem exposing Israeli nuclear hypocrisy
    • In honor of Gunter Grass expose on Israel's nukes, here's another world hero who's book isn't published in US:
      link to

    • So what's new? Grass was honest about everything, so was Solsanitzen in his books, including 200 years Together--result of these great novelists input? Zero. You can't even buy the Russian's named book in English translation. "Whenever I hear the word 'culture' I want to unlock my Uzi"

  • There is no better way than boycott
    • Why can't concerned Jews sent a public letter to AIPAC such as this letter? And make susre every US congress member gets a copy, along with the WH & State Dept?

  • 'United States of Israel' has compromised U.S. 'sovereignty' on Iran policy -- Gideon Levy in D.C.
    • What kind of Americans, especially those in the GOP who glorify small government and recommend all of us "pick ourselves from our own bootstraps," keep pushing for ever more enmeshment with Israel, ever more US taxpayer funding of Israel? I don't understand them at all.
      And what kind of Americans, especially those in the Democratic Party of diversity & minority rights, also love this enmeshment with apartheid Israel, love more funding of Israel's long time brutal oppression of the daily life of Palestinains? I also don't understand them at all.

      Why is somebody like Sheldon Adelson or Chuck Shumer not being attacked as an agent of a foreign government, one that has values and policies distinctly unAmerican? I mean, hey, Israel doesn't even have oil, and it has no strategic value in comparison to say, Iran or Egypt.

    • @ Boomer
      Yeah, I wonder just how much of a boot in the heinie Obama needs to let the zionist cat out of the bag?

    • @ Mooser
      Hey, the Israeli settlers gets lot of deep discounts and other perks from the Israeli government--it's great living, cheap & one gets to let loose his or her inner bigotry with no US restrictions, but rather, US pays for it! I bet David Duke is jealous and why shouldn't he be?

    • @ just
      I don't know personally a single fellow American who even knew about the conference regarding Israel & US a few days ago. Certainly, it did not make the mainstream news at all.

  • My personal journey of transformation
    • Wonder what Ms Thier thinks of the Goldhagen thesis re his book "Hitler's Willing Executioners"? Would she think it relevant to her own experience, the average German's experience growing up in Germany back in the day? Further, re how culture partners with government--20,000 Americans had already died in Vietnam before the anti-war movement broke out & remember, Hillary, Kerry, all those other "leaders" who signed on to Bush Jr's war on Iraq? Now so many of the same "leaders," still going strong, now pushing for war on Iran?

  • Does Schumer have any idea how angry his constituents will be if he torpedoes his president on Iran?
    • Somebody needs to send a memo to USA's tv new channels as they are not giving their audience a clue as to why Schumer and his ilk are controversial; they merely paint us a pic of a personality conflict between Obama & Bibi, and between two main political parties & the only "context" given is their demonization of Iran. The conference two days ago on Israel went all day on the internet, but it didn't make the mainstream media at all--even CSPAN refused to air it live.

      As an American, I really resent how Americans are kept misinformed and ignorant by our main tv news media especially, and even more especially by CSPAN & Public channels supported by tax payers.

    • Conversely, if one realizes it's not in USA's best interest to have no sky between it and Israel, isn't one bound to act accordingly & bring this to the attention of the US public?

  • Israel could reduce anti-Semitic violence by not calling itself the Jewish state, Finkelstein says
  • French philosopher who shut down Paris BDS event as 'anti-Semitic' and one-sided will lecture in NY on 'Free Speech'
    • Guess CSPAN got too much zionist flack from the first such conference it aired last year--this time they refused to air another expert panel critique of Israel-US relationship.

  • Rand Paul's antiwar populism should be celebrated, not scorned
  • Stanford Hillel defied Hillel guidelines by hosting Gottlieb -- 'and no one burst into flames'
    • Here's cspan's mission statement: link to
      Hard to see how they can refuse to cover this conference today. Guess they caught a lot of zionist flack from showing CIA assessment of US-Israeli relationship in Marfch of 2014: link to

      They showed Bibi addressing US congress; and they always air AIPAC conference.

      Hard to find who's making such key decisions at CSPAN these days.

    • Watch live conference tackling subject: Is Israel Lobby good for US or Israel? CSPAN backed out of showing it today--guess the management/owners thought they would burst into flames: link to

  • White House 'trolls' Netanyahu by co-opting infamous UN cartoon to sell Iran deal
  • Finkelstein on God and Dershowitz
    • Dershowitz, Epstein, Kagen, Wiesenthal ruin Jewish good name, Finkelstein, Chomsky, Weiss elevate Jewish good name--What does Harvard do?

  • Hurt by the Israel lobby, Obama kisses it goodbye
    • SCOTUS equating cash donations (lacking transparency as to donors in a myriad of ways) with "free speech" is the context here. just, don't hold your breath to get the truth to Dick and Jane.

    • Yes Obama should have been tougher--I chalk up his lack of courage to post-POTUS library funding & speaking and book career--he will be an X POTUS but not like Carter, who wasn't even invited to Democatic convention, remember? Carter's constant efforts, e'g', on Habitat For Humanity, have not given him access to the mainstream press. It's disgusting.

  • 'Walls divide and segregate' -- New Marine video might apply to Israel
  • 'NYT' addresses pro-Israel donors' influence over Congress
    • Looks like, for US government, the Israel hobby horse has become the toy store itself. Most Americans can't even get in the parking lot. They can stay outside the fence, collecting bottles and eating dandelion greens.

  • Now Obama needs to 'compensate' Netanyahu -- NYT pipes Israeli propaganda (Update)
    • Obviously Rudoren's body grew up in the USA, but her mind didn't. There's nothing American about her.

  • When occupation becomes apartheid
    • Well, would it do any good to mail this wonderfully accurate article to each member of the US congress? How about to TV news anchors with cc to their bosses? Too bad there is no Palestinian-Americans as rich as Soros or Adelson, for example.

  • Bibi talk: 'New York Review of Books' trivializes Israeli fascism
  • How Obama won on Iran
  • DEAL!
    • Primer on the Iran Deal:
      link to
      It's the subject of call-in show on CSPAN right now.

    • Fox news show The Five is doing its right now best to tear the deal apart. They are saying it looks great but how will it will be verified? What's changed in the verification process? Also note EU will drop sanctions first, and it will be hard to get them ever to agree to them again.

      Some analysts warned Israel needs to stop looking at the Iranian issue in isolation.

      Yehezkel Dror, a political science professor at the Hebrew University, said Israel was making "a severe mistake" in considering the peace process with the Palestinians and the Iranian issue as separate.

      "If there will not be progress toward a peace accord that would look reasonable to the US and others -- and which would enable more cooperation with other anti-Iranian Arab states in the region -- our standings won't improve," he said.

    • Reuters: The framework is contingent on reaching an agreement by June 30 and all sanctions on Iran remain in place until a final deal is reached, after a 12-year nuclear standoff between Tehran and the big powers.

      U.S. President Barack Obama said the outcome was a good deal, comparing it to nuclear arms control deals struck by his predecessors with the Soviet Union that "made our world safer" during the Cold War.

      "Today, the United States, together with our allies and partners, has reached an historic understanding with Iran, which if fully implemented, will prevent it from obtaining a nuclear weapon," he declared.

      Under the outline deal, Iran would shut down more than two-thirds of its centrifuges producing uranium that could be used to build a bomb, dismantle a reactor that could produce plutonium, and accept intrusive verification.

    • Maybe Cuba was Obama's dry run for Iran?
      link to

    • "Also, Obama has to come out with a strong statement about why it is now incumbent on the US to normalize relations with Iran. "

      Yes. He needs to articulate from his bully pulpit why our relationship with Iran should be very belatedly normalized to some extent, he needs to do at least a diluted version of Nixon To China.

    • I agree, for Israel, it's all about maintaining hegemony in the Middle East. As for Israel's supporters in the US Congress, I don't know if they believe Israel's security is actually threatened by potential Iranian nuke in any significant way,but I believe they fear AIPAC and want AIPAC-orchestrated dollars to keep or get office.
