  • Nationalism vs imagination -- Beinart and Vilkomerson square off over two-state solution
    • >> “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is determined to pass the controversial Jewish nation-state bill, he told the Knesset on Wednesday, saying that in Israel there is too much of a focus on individual civil rights at the expense of the rights of the Jewish state.”

      Benjamin "King of the Jews" Netanyahu is concerned that individual civil rights threaten Jewish supremacism in a supremacist "Jewish State".

      IOW, he values the supremacist "rights" of Jewish Israelis and non-Israeli Jews more than he values individual civil rights of - and justice, accountability and equality for - all Israelis.

      Just how much more clearly does the hatefulness and immorality of Zio-supremacism need to be spelled out?

    • Peter Beinart: ... I would like us to be in a two state solution along the lines of the Clinton Parameters and the Arab Peace Initiative. I don’t say that because I believe those answers represent perfect justice. ... They don’t even represent perfect justice for the Jewish settlers on the West Bank who I believe as a matter of principle have every right to live as equal citizens in the West Bank ...

      Jewish settlers? I thought they were Israeli settlers. Why is Beinart being anti-Semitic? And who will compensate the Palestinians displaced by these colonizers?

      I believe that even with a two state solution, Israel will have to evolve in some very fundamental ways… I myself am prepared to envision quite dramatic transformations in what Israel would have to be even after it ended its occupation of Palestinians in the West Bank.

      Are you prepared to envision Israel transforming...
      - from a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" primarily of and for Jewish Israelis and non-Israeli Jews,
      - into a secular and democratic Israeli state of and for all of its citizens, immigrants, ex-pats and refugees, equally?

      I believe that in a post holocaust world, I want one country on the planet that has the protection of Jewish life as part of its mission statement.

      I believe we should want all countries on the planet to have protection of all life - that is, justice, accountability and equality for all - as part of their mission statements. To suggest that one country must exist strictly for the protection of Jews is both arrogant and supremacist.

      And while my definition of a Jewish state is substantially more minimal than most people, for me what it should have is a preferential immigration policy especially for Jews in distress. Germany has a preferential immigration policy for ethnic Germans. Poland has a preferential immigration policy for ethnic Poles. A Kurdish state, I hope we get one, will have a preferential immigration policy for Kurds. A Palestinian state will have a preferential immigration policy for Palestinians. I believe that you can support a democracy that also has a preferential immigration policy for Jews.

      Wow, I cannot believe he trotted out this bit of kindergarten-level sh*t!

      But, just the same, here goes: Make Jewish the bureaucratic nationality of Jewish State and grant it to all citizens of, immigrants to and ex-pats and refugees from the geographic region comprising Partition-borders Jewish State.

      That way, everyone is Jewish - including Palestinian refugees and their descendants - and all Jewish people in the world are entitled to the same right of preferential immigration to their homeland of Jewish State.

    • >> seafoid: Israel is like a runway clown car ...

      Thanks for that - it was damned funny! :-D

  • Elizabeth Warren visits Netanyahu, even as he undermines US negotiations with Iran
    • >> RoHa: So, when you think about the best interests of the US, and take into account the necessity for strong ties with dependable allies, the economic and military considerations, it’s obvious where she has to go on that diplomatically important first trip, isn’t it?

      Sure. But when you think about the best interests of Elizabeth Warren and of Jewish supremacism in a supremacist "Jewish State", there's only one place in the world that matters.

      To go elsewhere would, at the very least, be anti-Semitic.

  • Efforts to suppress Palestinian activism on US campuses won't work
    • >> hophmeee: SJP students are attempting to suppress pro-Israel activism on campus by harassing Jewish students ...

      Is all pro-Israel activism being conducted by Jewish students? If it isn't, why the anti-Semitic conflation of Jews with Israel?

    • >> ivreee: This obsession with Israel will end up harming ...

      ...non-Zionist Jews. Which is unfortunate, because they should not be made to bear any responsibility for the seemingly insatiable greed of, or the past and ON-GOING acts of injustice and immorality committed by, Zio-supremacists and the oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist "Jewish State" of Israel.

      That responsibility should fall fully and squarely on the shoulders of Zio-supremacists like you.

    • “Many kids who grow up in pro-Israel homes end up joining anti-Israel movements as a result of their influence,” he charged.

      Any influence that causes people to stop supporting supremacism - or any other form of injustice or immorality - is a good influence, I charge.

  • The Minds of Others: An interview with Max Blumenthal
    • MJ (Mike) Rosenberg @MJayRosenberg: It is the idea of Israel that repels Max Blumenthal, not just the reality. People see through that & it repels them.

      Why should Max Blumenthal - or any other person who believes in and/or advocates for justice, accountability and equality - not be repelled by the idea of an Israel:
      - conceived, established and maintained as a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" primarily of and for Jewish Israelis and non-Israeli Jews, rather than as a secular and democratic Israeli state of and for all of its Israeli citizens, immigrants, ex-pats and refugees, equally;
      - born of Jewish terrorism and the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from their homes and lands;
      - engaged for over 60 years in a campaign of aggression, oppression, theft, colonization, destruction, torture and murder;
      - that refuses to honour its obligations under international law;
      - that refuses to accept responsibility and accountability for its past and ON-GOING (war) crimes; and
      - that refuses to enter into sincere negotiations for a just and mutually beneficial peace.

      Why is Mr. Rosenberg drawn to such a state, and repelled by the concepts of justice, accountability and equality?

    • >> Philip Munger: One who came back commented, “Canadians are so white they don’t even know they don’t have rhythm.”

      Much to the dismay of some Canadians, Canada isn't as white as it used to be. But now, at the very least, we know we don't have rhythm. ;-)

  • Like an unrequited lover, 'NYT' confesses itself heartbroken over Israel's (latest) betrayal of democracy
    • Since its founding in 1948, Israel’s very existence and promise ... has been based on the ideal of democracy for all of its people.

      If "all of its people" consisted only of Jews.

      But it doesn't consist only of Jews, so Israel's very existence and promise has been one of Jewish supremacism in an ever-expanding (beyond its / Partition borders), religion-supremacist "Jewish State".

      That is why it is heartbreaking to see the Israeli cabinet approve a contentious bill that would officially define Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people, reserving “national rights” only for Jews.

      It's kind of like hearing that the guy you've publicly defended for years against allegations of wife-beating - even though you knew full well he was a wife-beater - has decided to admit that he's a wife beater and that he intends to keep on beating his wife.

      You're heart-broken because you still support his actions, but you no longer have his pretense of respectability to hide behind. He's gone and made you look dirty! :-(

  • Debunking Netanyahu's propaganda on Jerusalem
    • >> Mayhemeee: To ignore the primary role that Islam plays in the whole picture is like designing a vehicle without considering what terrain it has to traverse.

      Funny stuff, coming from a Zio-supremacist who - like all Zio-supremacists - constantly ignores the primary role that Jewish supremacism and an oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist "Jewish State" have been playing in the whole picture for over 60 years.

      Why blame the rapist when you can blame the victim chained in his bunker or, better yet, the role females in general play in the whole picture.

    • ... After completing their prison term, terrorists will be deported from Israel. ... Terrorists’ houses will be destroyed within 24-hours of the attack. ... those inciting for terror and violence participating in illegal protests in which firebombs or fireworks were thrown will be arrested and held in remand until the completion of legal procedures against them. ... Anyone convicted at the end of their remand will lose their social welfare benefits and driving license for a 10 year period. Families of terrorists will lose their citizenship and will be deported to Gaza should they express support for their relative’s deed. ...

      Wow, Zio-supremacist terrorists are going to be might upset when the "Jewish State" destroys their homes, strips them of their benefits and deports them to Gaza!

    • >> This short piece of inflammatory propaganda above has been circulated by the Israeli Prime Minister’s office. It is dangerous and should be explained and put into context urgently:

      Condensed: Jewish supremacism in a (greater) religion-supremacist "Jewish State".

      >> Peace is an empty, useless word here.

      But "peace" is the only thing Zio-supremacists want to talk about. It lets them avoid talking about justice, accountability and equality.

      I have much respect for Mr. Kurz.

  • Poster questioning Zionism makes her feel 'unsafe', Wellesley student says
    • >> Dan Walsh: Zionist do not want, and have never wanted, a public discourse on Zionism.

      They avoid talking about it because Zionism is, fundamentally, all about Jewish supremacism in a supremacist "Jewish State". It has nothing to do with justice, accountability or equality.

      >> No one, not even the most rabid Zionist is “proud” to be a Zionist.

      You wouldn't know if from the comments posted here by rabid Zio-supremacists such as eee, JeffB, NormanF, and even some of the comments posted by "liberal Zionists".

    • >> Jordan Hannink: As a pro-Palestinian, pro-Israel, Zionist, conscientious Jew, I have been put into the pro-Israel corner, which ignores my activist work to a different end.

      You are conscientious and pro-Palestinian, but you also believe in Jewish supremacism in a supremacist "Jewish State". Interesting. Are you also pro-life and pro-choice?

      Instead of choosing to be put into a corner, choose to stand with people who are pro-justice, -accountability and -equality.

  • Rightwing flamethrowers see a US role in the battle for Jerusalem
    • I'd say that Zio-supremacists are insane, but I'm pretty sure they know exactly what they're doing when they advocate for, commit and/or defends acts of immorality and injustice committed by Jews and for Jews.

  • Palestinian youth hospitalized after being attacked by Israeli settlers in Jerusalem
    • >> “Israel is a Jewish and democratic state and all its citizens should enjoy equal rights. We expect Israel to stick to its democratic principles,” the State Department said.”

      Israel was conceived and established as - and has been operating for over 60 years as - a religion-supremacist "Jewish State". Although its principles - which include colonialism and expansionism - are very much unjust and immoral, it does stick to them. And the American government handsomely rewards Israel for "staying the course".

  • 'What is your religion?' question surprises two American visitors to the occupation
    • >> Jackdaweee: ... I don’t care what these young women wear, or where they wear it. ...

      Just so long as they do the bidding of Zio-supremacists and keep off Shuhada Street. Got it.

    • >> S.J.: On the plane I was annoyed and concerned that the Jewish gentleman ignored all the rules and no one questioned him.

      He didn't ignore the rules - he simply decided they did not apply to him. Much in the same way that oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist "Jewish State" has decided that the rules of justice, accountability and equality do not apply to it.

      Unfortunately, the failure of others to uphold the rules emboldens both that man and the supremacist "Jewish State".

    • >> Walid: ... I think we’re trying to create a storm in a teacup. ... Being American-Palestinian or other Arab doesn’t and shouldn’t give them more privileges than local Palestinians in their own land.

      I don't see how it's a bad thing (a "storm in teacup") to draw attention to the fact that (local or visiting) non-Jews do not have the same right as Jews to walk down a given road in Hebron, a city located outside of the (Partition) borders of supremacist "Jewish State".

    • >> RoHa: But eljay, if we let Muslims walk down Shuhada Street, bang go the property values!

      If Hebron were in "Jewish State", this supremacist aversion to Mooslims (a.k.a. terrorists and/or Hamas) daring to show their faces in public might make sense. But Hebron is not in "Jewish State", so why do "Jewish State" supremacist laws - "as envisaged by the prophets of Israel" - apply?

    • >> ckg: Move over, trolls. Jackdaw wins the award for the most ignorant comment ever posted on Mondoweiss.

      Ignorant, yes. Most ignorant? Not even close, IMO. Here are two classic examples from a "liberal Zionist" who used to post regularly on MW:

      The nakba that occurred in 1948 was accompanied by the independence, the liberation, of the Jewish community. So, I primarily celebrate …

      I cannot consistently say that “ethnic cleansing is never necessary”.

      Either one of those comments, IMO, outdoes this particular comment of Jackdaw.

    • The women are both Muslims, and when they said they were Muslim, they were not allowed to walk down Shuhada Street. Even though they had American passports. Shuhada Street is infamous because it’s an apartheid road. Jews can use it, but Palestinians can’t.

      Like any other form of supremacism, religion-based Jewish supremacism (a.k.a. Zio-supremacism) is truly hateful and immoral stuff. One particularly ugly feature of Zio-supremacism is that it affects the lives even of non-Jews living outside of the (Partition) borders of the supremacist "Jewish State".

    • >> Jackdaweee: I bet it was also a shock that they had to cover their hair everywhere they go in Jordan and the West Bank.

      Zio-supremacists love to promote the oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and religion-supremacist "Jewish State" of Israel as a "Western-style democracy", but when it comes to defending it, they unfailingly use anything but Western-style democracies for their comparisons.

      "Joe is a great guy, a real pillar of the community!"
      "He's a wife-beater and petty thief."
      "Oh, yeah, well at least he doesn't rape and murder women!"

  • Palestinian students fear for their lives during attack on train car in Jerusalem
    • >> Jackdaweee: Front page news on Mondoweiss, and not a word about the incident anywhere else.

      I totally agree with you: It's shameful that the MSM buries news that exposes or highlights ugly truths about Jewish supremacism in the supremacist "Jewish State".

    • >> A controversial bill that officially defines Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people has been approved by cabinet despite warnings that the move risks undermining the country’s democratic character.

      I fail to see the controversy, given that Israel...
      - was envisioned;
      - was founded;
      - has operated for over 60 years;
      - is regularly promoted; and
      - is defended,
      ...as a religion-supremacist "Jewish State".

  • Wall around Bethlehem is Christmas billboard in Atlanta
    • I agree with Donald's point that the billboard's image can - and may - purposely be mis-represented as an anti-Semitism. (But, seriously, what is there that can't purposely be mis-represented as anti-Semitism?)

      That said, I think Ellen's point is (tragically) more valid: " ... most will understand it as am image of desecration of the so-called Holy Land and then forget about it on their way to the shopping mall."

      With any luck, though, enough people won't forget about it.

  • George Lopez turns into a Christian Zionist hack
    • >> George Lopes: Getting my hands dirty in the largest archeological excavation site in the City of David, site of Biblical Jerusalem…

      Who knew that supporting Jewish supremacism within and outside of a supremacist "Jewish State" could be so much fun!

  • Israel lost the British elite after Gaza onslaught, UK ambassador says
    • >> German Lefty: You are right, eljay. However, if he is a Zionist, don’t expect me to feel sorry for him.

      Fair enough. How you feel about him is entirely your business.

    • >> German Lefty: ... I just read on a German news website that four men beat an Israeli tourist to a pulp at a station in Berlin. ... I assume that the four men heard him speak Hebrew and therefore thought that he’s a Zionist.

      Even if he was a Zionist, those men had no right to attack him, never mind beat him to a pulp. They must be held accountable for their immoral and unjust actions.

    • >> Polar: “Zio Surpemacists? ” Next you will start suing the word “Zio-Nazi”

      I won't. Will you?

      >> What is it, the Arab world cannot accept a Jewish presences in their world.

      Jewish citizens of states in the "Arab world" should have the same rights as any other citizens in those states. This does not mean a supremacist "Jewish State" has any right to exist.

      >> Israel is not some Jewish colonial project.

      Of course it is. Israel was conceived, established and has been operating for over 60 years as a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" - a state primarily of and for Jewish Israelis and non-Israeli Jews. It has been stealing, occupying and colonizing land outside of its (Partition) borders for the entire time it has been in existence. And it has made it very clear that it intends to relinquish little, if any, of that stolen, occupied and colonized land.

      >> There has been a Jewish presence in the region for thousands f years.

      So what? There has been a homosexual presence in the region for thousands of years. Neither homosexuals nor people of the Jewish faith are entitled to a supremacist state in Palestine (or anywhere else, for that matter).

      >> ... Israel will continue to exist.

      I agree that Israel should continue to exist as a secular and democratic Israeli state - a state of and for all of its citizens, immigrants, ex-pats and refugees, equally. I disagree that it should continue to exist as a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" - a state primarily of and for Jewish Israelis and non-Israeli Jews.

    • [Israeli:] The Land of Israel was given to the Jews, it’s in the Bible. The West Bank does not exist, nor does the so-called occupation. It’s Judea and Samaria, Jewish land. Get used to it…

      [Palestinian:] The Jews say the land is theirs because the Bible says so — and that’s not making this a religious war! If we try moderation, we’re unilateralists; if we resist, we’re terrorists; if we mourn, we are death merchants; if we breathe, we are intruders. They don’t want two states, they want a “peace process” to camouflage colonial rule. Gaza is the way it is because that is the way Israel wants it in order to say, you see, peace with these people is impossible. They have all America, money, nuclear bombs, highways, drones, an army and technology. We have nothing. We are poor. We only have our narrative. But we will fight until we have a state that restores our pride.

      That pretty much sums it up. Although the Zio-supremacist side of the argument also includes:
      - Holocaust; and
      - the belief that Jews are entitled to a supremacist "Jewish State" (something they deliberately mis-label as self-determination).

  • 'Palestine is an anxiety' for Americans-- Salaita in New York
    • >> Jackdaw: @eljay
      > You lost me too. What’s the cut off date?

      Doesn't matter, as long as it's the same for all people living in, originally from and/or up to n generations removed from Palestine.

    • >> Jackdaweee: And the Jews? Do they have an equal attachment to the Land?

      Jews living in, originally from and/or up to n generations removed from Palestine are entitled to the same attachment as Mr. Salaita. No more, no less.

  • South African activists reflect on parallels between life under apartheid and Israel/Palestine today
    • So the struggle is an anti-colonial one. This is what we talk about in South Africa, despite attempts by supporters of Israel and also some misinformed people who portray this as a religious struggle. This is an anti-colonial struggle, a struggle against ethnic cleansing, that humanity needs to unite around.

      It is a struggle for justice, accountability and equality, and against a colonialism that is rooted in and driven by religion-based supremacism. Humanity is right to unite around it.

  • It's one state and 'kumbaya' is the way forward -- former Police drummer Copeland
    • Overall, I agree with Mr. Copeland's thinking. That said...

      I think most of the Palestinian people don’t want to be part of Israel; there’s national pride involved, and tribalism ...

      ...and the fact that non-Jews are necessarily relegated to second-class status in the religion-supremacist "Jewish State" that is Israel.

      The great Zionist dream of a Jewish state, a homeland for the Jewish people, I get it. With the history of the Jewish people, I totally get the dream. But history hasn’t played out that way, and I don’t think that’s attainable or sustainable.

      A religion-supremacist "Jewish State" is attainable and sustainable, but only by completely disregarding the practices of justice, accountability and equality.

  • First they came for the Palestinians . . .
    • >> OyVey00: Because it is apparently based on a poem about the Holocaust.

      It's based on a poem that speaks to the gradual but inevitable consequences of not defending all members of society, including communists, socialists, trade unionists and people of the Jewish faith.

      IMO, you do the poem an injustice by reducing it to "a poem about the Holocaust".

    • >> Annie Robbins: please explain how the cartoon assumes the Holocaust to be the moral standard on human suffering.

      +1. I'm not seeing it either.

  • Revisiting 'Graveyard of Numbers': Israel refuses to return remains of Palestinian militants as a punitive measure
    • >> Mayhemeee: And Eljay makes his 7746th posting repeating the exact same terms as he always does – oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and zio-supremacist, omitting the word ‘ethnic-cleansing’ this time through some inexplicable oversight.

      It's quite explicable: I use terms that I feel are relevant in the post I'm writing. Ethnic cleansing wasn't relevant in that post, so I didn't use it.

      I get that the accuracy of those terms offends you, but until such time as they are no longer accurate, I will continue to use them.

    • >> Mayhemeee: Israel has to find ways to give less and less opportunity to potential murderers to gain from their evil acts.

      And the world has to find ways to give less and less opportunity to the oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist "Jewish State" of Israel to gain from its past and ON-GOING evil acts.

      Of course, it would be nice if Israel were to:
      - stop stealing, occupying and colonizing Palestinian land and oppressing, torturing and killing Palestinians; and
      - pursue justice, accountability and equality.

      Unfortunately, Zio-supremacism won't allow it.

  • 'You don't want us to breathe!': Video captures everyday frustration of life under occupation in East Jerusalem

      >> And then there is their sheer hypocrisy.

      Yes, Zio-supremacists are incredibly hypocritical. They would not for a moment put up with the acts of injustice and immorality they've been committing against Palestinians for over 60 years.

    • >> jon s: Norman is correct on the demography .Since the late 19th century there’s been a Jewish majority in Jerusalem.

      Even if NormanFeee is correct about the Jewish Palestinian majority in Jerusalem, he is incorrect that that majority entitles:
      - Jews to an oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and religion-supremacist "Jewish State" in Palestine; or
      - the "Jewish State" of Israel to occupy and claim for itself the free city of Jerusalem.

    • >> Mikhaeleee: Just like Paris belongs to the world, just like London belongs to the world, and just like New York City belongs to the world, the Israeli capital–JERUSALEM–is a world city.

      Paris, London and NYC belong to their respective countries, but they are (relatively) open to the world. Jerusalem should be the free city it was intended to be - belonging to itself, but (relatively) open to the world.

      Thanks to a decades-old and on-going occupation by the oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist "Jewish State" of Israel, Jerusalem is not free.

      >> It’s still the Israeli capital, though, and it will remain that way.

      It's Israel's victim, not its capital, and it must be liberated.

      >> Some people believe in ethnic exclusivity for Jerusalem, though and look forward to the day when “Jerusalem will speak only Arabic”

      Ethnic supremacism in Jerusalem is just as wrong as religion-based Jewish supremacism in Israel and in all the non-Israeli territory (i.e., outside of its / Partition borders) it occupies (including Jerusalem).

      I condemn these and all other forms of supremacism.

    • >> hophmi: There is nothing fascistic about defending the citizens of your country.

      So you agree that any country whose citizens happen to be visting or stealing and colonizing land in Israel has a right to attack Israel to defend them from vicious Israeli terrorism, yes? Because that's not fascistic, right?

      >> And while Netanyahu speaks in terms of a Jewish state, his actions clearly seek to defend Jews, Christians, Muslims, Druze, Ba’hai, and all of the people of different faiths that live in Israel.

      You crack me up. If someone defending a supremacist "Muslim State" had made a similar comment about its leader speaking in terms of a Muslim state defending all of its Muslims and people of different faiths that live in it, you'd be calling bullshit. Your comment is no different.

    • >> jon s: The UN partition plan of 1947 did, indeed , call for the internationalization of Jerusalem. Need I remind you that the plan was rejected by the Arab side?

      So what? Israel accepted what it was offered. The greed of Zio-supremacists was not and is not justification for taking anything beyond what was offered and accepted.

    • >> NormanFeee: Of all the peoples in the world, Jews have no right no live ...

      Jews have every right to live as people, among people and in societies that practice justice, accountability and equality. Jews have no right - no group of people has a right - to live as supremacists in a supremacist state.

      >> The Jewish people ... will defend their capital ...

      Jerusalem is not the capital of the Jewish people or of Israel. It's a free city - a city that belongs to its inhabitants - which has, unfortunately, been occupied by an oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist "Jewish State" for decades.

    • >> gracie fr: ... Ben-Gurion insisted that all of the territories that had been captured had to be given back, very quickly, for holding on to them would distort, and might ultimately destroy, the Jewish state.

      Oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist "Jewish State" was already a distortion. What Ben-Gurion should have said was that holding onto the captured territories would further distort it. (And it has.)

    • Bibi is the war-mongering, supremacist leader of an oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist "Jewish State" founded on and sustained by a Jewish-supremacist ideology.

      What blows my mind is that so many people - Jews and non-Jews alike - choose to support the hatefulness, immorality and injustice that are Zio-supremacism and the supremacist "Jewish State" of Israel over the universal values of justice, accountability and equality.

      >> Once again Prime Minister Netanyahu’s analysis is dead wrong: the “core of the violence,” as he puts it, is not the Palestinians’ refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state ... but Israel’s refusal to address – even acknowledge – Palestinian national rights and claims.

      The core of the problem is Zio-supremacism - the belief that Jews are entitled to a supremacist "Jewish State" in Palestine.

      No group of people (not even Jews) is entitled to a supremacist state and no-one (not even Palestinians) should be expected or required to recognize or accept any supremacist state (not even a Jewish one).

      >> Much was made on television news of the fact that folks in Gaza celebrated the murders.

      And rightly so: No-one should celebrate murder. But...where are the "context", "balance" and "nuances"? Why isn't television news making much of the fact that:
      - the folks in Israel celebrate the murders of Palestinians; and
      - Israel has been stealing, occupying and colonizing Palestinian land and oppressing, torturing and killing Palestinians for over 60 years?

      Excellent post, Donald.

      >> I’ll add the NYT editorial board to that list of hypocrites, who just came out with an editorial condemning the horror in Jerusalem and saying that it brings shame to the Palestinian people, when they never said one word along those lines about Israel or its supporters during the Gaza War.

      That sounds very...Zio-supremacist.

    • >> y.f.: There are two types of reactions to such an event: a human reaction and a political reaction. Phil and the commentators here have provided the political reaction that one would expect here. But nary a word in the direction of a human reaction. Hardened hearts, anyone?

      Here is my reaction:

      >> jon s: Horrific terrorist attack this morning , on a synagogue in Jerusalem.

      I condemn the attack and sincerely hope that the perpetrators are brought to justice.

      I tried to find a similarly succinct "human reaction" comment from you regarding either the murder of Mohammed Abu Khdeir or of the inhabitants of Gaza during Israel's most recent assault on that population. I couldn't find anything relating to the former, and the only comments I could find relating to the latter were padded with political / philosophical commentary.

      Hardened heart, y.f.?

    • >> just: what words did he utter when Israel has murdered Americans???

  • Kahanists attack school after synagogue killings
    • >> ivreee: That is, something like: you come to my place to destroy and kill, we shall visit your place tomorrow. That’s` a kind of different deterrent type – a new conflict format.

      When Palestinians retaliate against Zio-supremacist Jews who come to their place to destroy and kill (and steal and ethnically cleanse and colonize and oppress and torture), it's referred to as terrorism (or terror or terrrrrrr). But when Zio-supremacist Jews retaliate against Palestinians, it's called "a new conflict format".

      Go figure.

      However they go about it, the end game is to preserve Jewish supremacism in as large a supremacist "Jewish State" as possible.

  • Support for Israel in the U.S. Jewish community continues to erode
    • >> Kay24: They kept showing the blood the entire day….the over 2000 Palestinian were not given that attention.

      That's because Palestinians don't bleed - they only hate. And that's why you see what you see in the media.

    • >> catporn: On this day when yet more Palestinian homes are being demolished, allegedly for attacks in October, the question has to be asked, why weren’t the murderer’s of Abu Khdeir tracked, executed and their homes demolished?

      Easy: The murderers are Jewish, they live in and support a supremacist "Jewish State", and they killed a non-Jew. No harm, no foul.

  • For CNN and NYT, Jewish lives matter more than Palestinian ones
    • >> Kay24: Just for once I would like to hear someone in the media say that perhaps if Israel ended the occupation, and stopped the damn illegal settlements, there would be an end to this violence.

      +1. I'd also like to hear someone in the media clearly explain that Israel:
      - is not a secular and democratic Israeli state - a state of and for all of its Israeli citizens, immigrants, ex-pats and refugees, equally;
      - is a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" - a state primarily of and for Jewish Israelis and non-Israeli Jews;
      - refuses to honour its obligations under international law (including RoR);
      - refuses to accept responsibility and accountability for its past and ON-GOING (war) crimes; and
      - refuses to enter into sincere negotiations for a just and mutually-beneficial peace.

      The public already knows that Joe Smith is a productive member of the community. What the public needs to know is that he's also a sadistic rapist who has women chained I his bunker.

      Most every word from a Zio-supremacist is repetitious, a variation of the same idea couched in different words that always add up to - "Jews are entitled to as large a supremacist state as possible and Palestinians can go f*ck themselves". Their posts are pure spam, that is - they are the same material endlessly served up from different angles and in different shapes but the elemental ideas are always the same monochromatic self-righteous bigotry, immorality, supremacism and injustice.

  • This is not yet an intifada, Palestinians say
    • >> Mooser: But “justice” as we strive for it in a democracy? Nope, they got none of that.

      In a supremacist "Jewish State", they strive for Zio-supremacist "morality" (goal + methods) and "peace".

      But they don't seem to give a flying f*ck about justice (or accountability or equality).

    • >> Jackdaweee: Blaming everything on PM Netanyahu is simplistic scapegoating. It’s not dissimilar to what the Nazis did to the Jews in Weimer Germany. Just convenient scapegoating.

      You crack me up. The correct Nazi Germany analogy to "blaming everything on Netanyahu is scapegoating" is "blaming everything on Hitler is scapegoating".

      Which means that your assertion that the Palestinians are also to blame for the problems in Mandate Palestine (i.e., within and outside of Israel's legitimate borders) means you similarly - and anti-Semitically - blame Jews for problems in Nazi Germany.

      Why do you hate Jews so much?!

    • “FBI launches investigation into death of US citizens

      As three of the victims held joint US citizenship, the FBI has launched an investigation, CNN reports.”

      I don't recall reading that the FBI launched investigations into the death of Palestinian U.S. citizens. Interesting.

    • >> just: link to theguardian.com

      “Israel is to ease gun controls for those licensed to carry weapons such as off-duty army officers or private security guards, public security minister, Yitzhak Aharonovich, has announced.

      He told IDF Radio that in the wake of the synagogue killings the easing of restrictions would apply to incidents of self-defence, Israel National News reports.”

      In the wake of Israel's 60+ years and on-going campaign of theft, occupation, colonization of Palestinian land and oppression, torture and murder of Palestinians, the security minister really should ease gun controls for Palestinians. The easing of restrictions would, of course, apply to incidents of self-defence.

    • >> ivreee: Would it not be much better for everybody directly concerned (faraway cheerleaders excluded) to accept a status-quo in which the country is indeed a Jewish state with a cooperating, rather than endemically hostile, attitude as a minority?

      No. What would be much better for everybody is if justice, accountability and equality were respected in Partition-borders Israel and Palestine.

      Unfortunately, Zio-supremacists have make it clear that they have no interest in justice, accountability or equality - they just want "peace" and Jewish supremacism in a supremacist "Jewish State".

      >> Jews were in thousand worse conditions as minorities in other countries ...

      The proper solution to injustices committed to Jewish citizens of those countries was justice, accountability and equality. The proper solution has never been Jewish supremacism in a supremacist "Jewish State".

    • >> jon s: Horrific terrorist attack this morning , on a synagogue in Jerusalem.

      I condemn the attack and sincerely hope that the perpetrators are brought to justice.

  • 'Zionism' is now a dirty word for American opinion elite, Frank Luntz concedes
    • >> hophmeee: ... Zionism is like Obamacare. It’s a term that’s been subjected to an intense negative propaganda campaign ... The numbers show most Americans think Israel is an ally and agree with the idea that there should be a Jewish homeland, which is the core of what Zionism is.

      It's disturbing and disappointing to know that the positive propaganda campaign waged by Zio-supremacists and their supporters in defence of Jewish supremacism in a supremacist "Jewish State" - "the core of what Zionism is" - has been more effective than the campaign waged in defence of Palestinians by people who believe in the ideals of justice, accountability and equality.

    • Being against Israel has become the cool thing to do.

      Being against all forms of injustice and immorality - including Jewish and other forms of supremacism - is not a "cool thing" to do: It's the right thing to do.

      Zio-supremacists work very hard to convince people that past and ON-GOING acts of injustice and immorality are unjustifiable and unacceptable...unless Jews commit them.

    • >> ivreee: Miraculously, from a Jewish angle (and even beyond) ...

      It's a deranged mind - a Zio-supremacist mind - that views as miraculous:
      - Jewish terrorism;
      - the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from their homes and lands;
      - the establishment of an oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist state;
      - a 60+ years, ON-GOING and offensive (i.e., not defensive) campaign of aggression, oppression, theft, colonization, destruction, torture and murder.

    • >> ivreee: ... the macro historic view that this little piece of land is the natural home of the Jewish people ...

      Palestine is not the "natural home of the Jewish people" - it's the natural home of the inhabitants of Palestine (including Palestinian Jews).

      Palestine was partitioned into two states. Each state should be the natural home of its citizens, immigrants, ex-pats and refugees, equally. Neither state should be a religion-supremacist (or any other type of -supremacist) state of and for members of one group both within that state and elsewhere in the world.

  • Videos: Jerusalem Skunk

    • >> CigarGod: I’m pretty sure if Arab west bank police filled water balloons , and threw them over the fences onto “Israeli property”, they’d be shot…even if the balloons were filled with spring water.

      They'd be shot because balloons filled with (Arab) spring water represent an existential threat to "Jewish State". ("Look what you've done! I'm melting! Melting!")

    • These videos have surfaced of Jerusalem police driving calmly through quiet empty East Jerusalem neighborhoods drenching elementary schools and residences with a putrid liquid with the stench of feces and rotting animal carcass, commonly referenced as “skunk spray”.
