    • >> talknic: At Zabars? Where they serve Kosher?
      >> Herb Glatter: Zabar’s Kosher? obviously you have never visited this place. Here’s a link to their website – maybe, just maybe you’ll learn something ...

      He didn't say they are Kosher, he said they serve Kosher. And, whaddaya know, he's right: Zabar's Kosher Selections

      Maybe, just maybe, you've learned something.

  • John Kerry and the Pope set to face off with Jewish Knight Templars on the Temple Mount
  • Registration of Jews and other human beings
    • >> I cannot imagine what would make Jews in Israel feel that way. I mean, the Palestinians have been so peaceful ...

      Zio-supremacist ignores Israel's (and Zio-supremacists') past and on-going (war) crimes.

      >> ... and the region has been so friendly to minorities, always treating Jews perfectly in every way.

      Zio-supremacist looks to Saudi Arabia, Mali and African "hell-holes" to justify his supremacist state's unjust and immoral behaviour.

      hophmeee is a consistent Zio-supremacist.

    • Another Zio-supremacist mantra: "Do unto others what would be considered anti-Semitic if done unto you. And if people call you out on your unjust and immoral behaviour, accuse them of being anti-Semitic."

  • Israeli settlers release wild boars on Palestinian farmland to destroy crops
    • >> What are you talking about? If David existed as per the bible then the rest of the story goes with it. What is he a prophet of if not the Davidic Kingdom?

      David's existence (from "c. 1040–970 BC", according to Wiki) doesn't validate "the rest of the story" any more than Mohammed's existence validates his flight to heaven on a wingèd horse. It certainly doesn't prove that "the Jews were there for 2 millennia".

    • >> Either there is no prophet David or the Jews were there for 2 millennia.

      The existence of a prophet David does not prove that "the Jews" have been in Palestine for 2,000 years. At most, it proves that some Jews were in Palestine 2,000 years ago.

  • Federal agencies express concerns about Israel's entry into the Visa Waiver Program
    • >> Don’t they already live in ‘Disneyland’ with an armed-to-the-teeth Goofy in charge?

      Their militant Goofy is more than just goofy: According to JeffB, he's also King of all Jews.

    • >> ... Representative Brad Sherman ... emphasized the need to ease U.S. visa restrictions so that Israelis could visit Disneyland, saying “when they (Israelis) want to see Mickey Mouse, they should see the real one.”

      Never mind putting an end to oppression, land theft, occupation, colonization, destruction, torture and murder. Never mind accountability for (war) crimes committed. Never mind honouring obligations under international law.

      Nosir! In the mind of Zio-supremacists and their supporters, ensuring that Israelis have unhindered access to the real Mickey Mouse is what constitutes justice.

  • Peter Beinart misses South Africa's apartheid lesson, Gideon Levy gets it
    • >> giladg: Yes talknic, “Die Stem”, which was the Afrikaner anthem, is part of the new Sth Arican anthem.

      Here, according to Wiki, is the South African national anthem. The third stanza is the Afrikaans section:

      God bless Africa
      Let its (Africa's) horn be raised,
      Listen also to our prayers,
      Lord bless us, we are the family of it (Africa).

      Lord bless our nation,
      Stop wars and sufferings,
      Save it, save our nation,
      The nation of South Africa — South Africa.

      From the blue of our heavens,
      From the depths of our seas,
      Over our everlasting mountains,
      Where the cliffs give answer,

      Sounds the call to come together,
      And united we shall stand,
      Let us live and strive for freedom
      In South Africa our land.

      It seems pretty inclusive, even the Afrikaans part. No wonder Mr. Mandela had no objection to singing it!

      Let's see what the Israeli national athem (again, according to Wiki) looks like by comparison:

      As long as in the heart, within,
      A Jewish soul still yearns,
      And onward, towards the ends of the east,
      An eye still gazes toward Zion;

      Our hope is not yet lost,
      The hope of two thousand years,
      To be a free people in our land,
      The land of Zion and Jerusalem.

      Aside from the line "To be a free people in our land", there's nothing much there for the non-Jew. I wonder if giladgeee thinks Mr. Abbas should sing about his Jewish soul or the land of Zion.

    • >> You and Abbas are not interested in the basic and core facts that drive the Jewish people.

      Some of "the Jewish people" are driven by a desire for justice, accountability, equality and morality.

      Others are driven by a desire for a supremacist "Jewish State" of (Greater) Israel in Palestine. They're aware of the basic and core facts of 60+ years of terrorism, oppression, ethnic cleansing, land theft, occupation, colonization, destruction, torture and murder. And when they're not busy deflecting attention from those facts, they're (proudly) defending and/or justifying them.

    • >> Don’t let the facts get in the way.

      Words Zio-supremacists live by.

    • >>Peter Beinart:

      In South Africa, whites and blacks negotiated the terms of a marriage. Israelis and Palestinians, by contrast – at least at this stage of history – must negotiate the terms of a divorce.

      A divorce has a better chance than does a marriage of ensuring ("at least at this stage of history") the continued existence of supremacist "Jewish State". This is why Beinart - a "liberal" Zio-supremacist - advocates for it.

  • Passover Auto-Pilot
    • >> ... when one of my nieces went to poland on her senior trip i wrote to her that I wished to protect her from ... the history of the fact, that she would be spared that experience of learning about that period of history.

      Everyone - including your niece - should learn:
      - what other people did and are still doing to Jews; and
      - what Jews did and are still doing to other people.

      Both lessons are valuable, and to withhold them is a dis-service.

  • Bridgegate 2.0: Israeli tech students manipulate traffic patterns
    • >> From jpost.com:

      Following Yadid and Ben Sinai’s success in implementing the system, the advisers notified Waze of the “cyber-attack” and explained to the company the manner in which the students were able to hack the application.

      Sounds like the right steps were taken.

  • Father of photographer critically wounded at West Bank protest: 'This is life under occupation'
    • >> Sammar @ April 22, 2014 at 12:28 pm:

      Interesting comment today by Joe Biden on the Ukraine crisis:

      “”No nation has the right to simply grab land from another nation,” Biden said. “We will never recognize Russia’s illegal occupation of Crimea.”

      Stephen "Donkey-fellater" Harper, Prime Minister of Canada, recently - and quite hypocritically - made similarly nauseating comments.

    • >> Settlers torch mosque in northern Israel

      Price tag policy

      Price tag policy ... is the name originally given to "acts of random violence aimed at the Palestinian population, and Israeli security forces" by fundamentalist Israeli settler youths who, according to the New York Times, "exact a price from local Palestinians or from the Israeli security forces for any action taken against their settlement enterprise".

      Zio-supremacists, in general, are hateful and immoral enough, but these Zio-supremacist colonists - who resort to violence and/or vandalism to defend their unjust, illegal and/or immoral activities - are in a different class of ugliness altogether.

  • John Judis's Truman book is a landmark in anti-Zionism
    • >> Here’s the Zionist lobby in its infancy...

      From Haaretz: "The pressure Herzl tried to exert on the Americans could be seen to mark the start of the Jewish lobby in the United States."

      "Jewish lobby", not "Zionist lobby". Huh. I wonder if this makes Ofer Aderet an anti-Semite.

    • >> A “religious” state was not founded “in Palestine”; a Jewish nation-state declared its independence ...

      Is Jewish the bureaucratic nationality of this "Jewish nation-state", a nationality granted to all of its citizens, immigrants, refugees and ex-pats? Nope.

      "Jewish nation-state" was and remains, fundamentally, a religion-supremacist construct.

  • How many 'Palestinian Arabs' want to kill 'all Jews?'
    • >> How do you think the Palestinians got that country in the 6th and 7th century?

      When Zio-supremacists aren't busy defending their country by comparing it to Saudi Arabia, Mali or African "hell-holes", they're busy reaching back to the 6th and 7th centuries (?!) to justify their and their country's 20th-21st century, on-going (war) crimes. Amazing.

  • 'Israel is the home of all Jews,' declares a right-wing official
    • >> ... Israel is the home of all Jews ...

      Israel is the home of Jews and non-Jews who live there, and of Jews and non-Jews who are permitted to immigrate there.

      It should also be the home of all non-Jews who were ethnically cleansed from there. Sadly - and shamefully - it's not.

  • Reports of anti-Semitism in Ukraine and Hungary

      "The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water..."

      Not valid then, not valid now.

  • Palestinian youth say the talks with Israel are futile
    • >> Let’s look at the picture on her T-Shirt!

      And if you get up close enough to the shirt, you might even be able to obscure the oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist "Jewish State" of Israel's 60+ years, on-going and offensive (i.e., not defensive) campaign of aggression, oppression, theft, colonization, destruction, torture and murder that's taking place around you.

  • Resurrecting Passover?
    • >> In the Bible we are told repeatedly to remember the oppression in Egypt for a purpose- so as not to do the same to others.

      Well, then, that is one massive fail for Zio-supremacists, Zio-supremacism and the supremacist "Jewish State" of Israel.

      So...it's everyone else's fault but his own that he's unable to embrace justice, equality and accountability over Jewish supremacism in a supremacist "Jewish State". Interesting.

  • Updated: Remote-control gun installed atop wall near Bethlehem -- Ma'an
    • >> Israel is the real thing and has always yearned for peace.

      A self-proclaimed supremacist state that...
      - has waged a campaign of land theft, occupation, colonization, destruction and oppression for over 60 years;
      - refuses to halt its campaign of land theft, occupation, colonization, destruction and oppression;
      - refuses to honour its obligations under international law; and
      - refuses to enter into sincere negotiations for a just and mutually-beneficial peace,
      ...is not a country that "yearns for peace".

      The "real thing" about such a country is that it wishes:
      - to keep as much as possible of what it has stolen;
      - to avoid accountability for its past and on-going (war) crimes; and
      - to remain a supremacist state.

    • >> Not shocking that MW and the palestinian press would distort the truth and characterize this as a ‘machine gun’

      You're right:
      - MW and the Palestinian press should correctly describe the weapon, its intended use and what harm or damage it can cause.
      and
      - The oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist "Jewish State" of Israel must end its occupation of Palestine, withdraw to within its / Partition borders, honour its obligations under international law, accept responsibility for its past and on-going (war) crimes and enter into sincere negotiations for a just and mutually-beneficial peace.

  • Friedman prepares American Jews for a divorce from zealot Israel
    • >> ... if you think that the bombs in pizza parlors did not leave a lasting effect ...

      ... your mind will simply boggle at the thought of the lasting effect of over 60 years of ON-GOING oppression, land theft, occupation, colonization, destruction, torture and murder.

      >> I realize that the Palestinians suffered even more than Israelis during the intifada and certainly they have suffered more since the end of the intifada ... but to dismiss the building of the wall as something irrational is wrongheaded and certainly narrow minded.

      To support the building of the wall is wrong-headed and narrow-minded. Not only is the wall built (mostly? entirely) on Palestinian land (i.e., land outside of Israel's / Partition borders), but it does nothing to address the fact that Israel remains engaged in a 60+ years, ON-GOING and offensive (i.e., not defensive) campaign of aggression, oppression, theft, colonization, destruction and murder.

      The rational response to repeated blowback from occupation and colonization is to stop occupying and colonizing.

  • Palestinians can have an embassy in Jerusalem, but God forbid not a capital -- Israeli mayor
    • >> The Arabs have Mecca and Medina (which used to be a Jewish city until the Muslims killed all the Jewish men in the 7th century).

      A Zio-supremacist looks to another group's 7th century acts of injustice and immorality to justify his group's 20th and 21st century acts of injustice and immorality. Amazing.

      >> Let the Jews keep Jerusalem.

      Jerusalem was a city of its inhabitants. It should remain a free city of its (current and ethnically-cleansed indigenous) inhabitants, not a city of and for "the Jews" (or "the Palestinians", for that matter).

    • >> BARKAT: There are solutions to that, but there is not a solution of, God forbid, dividing the city of Jerusalem.

      Dividing Jersualem is far less unjust and immoral than all of the past and on-going (war) crimes committed by Zio-supremacists. I wouldn't put too much weight on anything "god" has to say about this matter.

      >> It will never function. It’s against the DNA of the city.

      Which DNA is that? Jewish DNA? Is that was justifies not only the "Jewish State's" decades-long occupation of the city but also its sense of entitlement to Jerusalem? What happened to the city's non-Jewish DNA - has it all been scrubbed away?

      >> ... I think it’s a demand that has to be off the table, because whoever raises such a demand doesn’t understand the importance of the city of Jerusalem as a united city.

      Alright, then, make Jerusalem united under the Palestinians, and let Israelis have an embassy there.

      Or maybe adhere to international law, get your Zio-supremacist paws off Jerusalem and let it be the free city it was supposed to be.

      Oh, right, "god forbid".

  • Alleged K.C. killer: 'If Jews can have a state of their own, why can't we have a White Christian state?'
    • >> Sorry eljay, meant this for downthread. Great comment, btw.

      No worries. And thanks. :-)

    • Correction (based on more-recent information):
      >> I condemn Frazier Glenn Miller’s killing of Jewish Americans.

      Not that it makes either his actual crime or his intended crime any less heinous. He must be held to account.

    • I condemn Frazier Glenn Miller's killing of Jewish Americans. He must be held accountable for his crime.

      >> If the Jews can have a Jewish state of their own, then why can’t we have a White Christian state of our own?

      A "Jewish State" is a supremacist construct. A "White Christian State" is a supremacist construct. No group is entitled to have a supremacist state, and no state has a right to exist as a supremacist state. That's why.

      It's interesting - but not surprising - to see Mr. Miller taking the Zio-supremacist approach of using injustices committed by others to justify injustices committed by him or his co-collectivists. That approach is not valid for Zio-supremacists and it's not valid for white supremacists, either.

      An Israeli "Law of Return" that applies not to Israelis, but to Jews. IOW, a supremacist "Law".

      Fail #1.

      >> Funny I don’t hear you whining about ethnic Germans being granted German citizenship when they move to Germany (it’s called jus sanguinis).

      Why would I? I have nothing against ethnic Israelis being granted Israeli citizenship when they move to Israel.

      Fail #2.

      Chin up - maybe next time you'll manage to convince me that Jewish supremacism and past and on-going Jewish (war) crimes have something to do with justice, equality and accountability.

    • >> Eljay
      >> I just love fatuous declarations ! Here is mine: “I condemn all supremacist states.”

      Glad to hear it.

      >> Is Israel a “Jewish” state ? Yes. ... Is it a supremacist state ? No.

      Israel was devised as, created as and exists as a state fundamentally of and for Jewish Israelis and non-Israeli Jews, and not as a state fundamentally of and for all of its Israeli citizens - and immigrants and ex-pats and refugees - equally. That makes it a supremacist state. But you won't condemn it. Surprise, surprise.

      >> Now let’s ask all these questions about the role of Jews in Arab and Moslem countries. And while you’re at it check their ratings on Freedom House’s index. Then rush back and tell me again about “supremacist” states !

      What's to tell? That "Arab and Moslem countries" are, overall, worse places to live than Israel? So what? The fact that Israel is somewhat better than the worst doesn't mean Israel is anywhere near as good as the best*. And it certainly doesn't mean that Israel as a "Jewish State" is not supremacist.

      ________________________
      *I simply can't understand why Zio-supremacists think that comparing their "Jewish State" with countries even they despise is somehow supposed to make right everything about Israel that is wrong.

      It's like supporters of a serial wife-beater thinking that defending him because he's not a serial rapist or a serial killer - rather than condemning him for not being a good, honest and law-abiding citizen - somehow makes him a better person.

    • >> I can hardly wait the 30-40 years when Moslems form the majority in England and France, and declare them Islamic republics ...

      Moslems have no more right to a supremacist "Islamic republic" than do Jews to a supremacist "Jewish State". All forms of supremacist states should be condemned. I condemn them. Do you? Or are you just one more Zio-supremacist hypocrite who thinks supremacism is acceptable only when it favours Jews?

  • Simon Schama's Israel whitewash
    • >> ... “it was not just what the Nazi’s did to the Jews, but what everyone else failed to do that made the moral case for Israel”.

      There was not, there is not and there cannot ever be a moral case for a supremacist "Jewish State" or for any supremacist state.

      It's amazing how hard Zio-supremacists fight against justice, equality, accountability and morality.

      Weak attempt at diversion. I didn't ask for an example of how those countries formed one or more centuries ago.

      >> OK, there you go the 3 examples you picked.

      OK what? You have completely failed to demonstrate that Israel is or strives to be anywhere near as good as Canada, Austria and Denmark - none of which is a supremacist state - currently are.

      Better luck next time...unless you're busy comparing Israel to Mali, Saudi Arabia or African "hell-holes". Again.

    • >> To pick a relevant example in Mali ...

      It's funny how Zio-supremacists never pick a relevant example such as, say, Denmark, Austria or Canada when it comes to defending their oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist state.

      It's always Mali or Saudi Arabia or African "hell-holes", and always about being just a little bit better than the worst rather than being as good as the best.

      It's always about justifying past and on-going (war) crimes, land theft, colonialism and supremacism rather than sincerely striving to make peace, honour obligations and accept responsibility.

    • >> The notion that BDS and anti-Sodastream activism is anything other than thinly veiled antisemitism is absurd.

      Fighting for justice, equality and accountability is anything but absurd.

      What is absurd - what's hypocritical and obscene, actually - is the Zio-supremacist fight against justice, equality and accountability and for an oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist "Jewish State".

Disgusting.

      Only in the mind of a Zio-supremacist is the continuation of oppression, land theft, occupation, colonization, destruction, torture, murder and supremacism required in order for a humane solution to be reached.

      "Jewish State" is a supremacist construct. No-one should be expected or required to recognize or accept "Jewish State" or any other supremacist state.

      For over 60 years, "Jewish State" has been engaged in terrorism, ethnic cleansing, land theft, occupation, colonization, destruction, torture and murder. Those actions - and not the unwillingness of Palestinians to recognize "Jewish State" - are the "fundamental blockers".

    • >> The Jews of the US and elsewhere should internalize the fact that there is no logic to antisemitism and the hatred of Israel.

      Anti-Semitism - like all prejudices - is an injustice, the answer to which is justice. All people should internalize that fact.

      Additional injustices include:
      - terrorism and ethnic cleansing;
      - land theft, occupation, colonialism;
      - oppression, torture and murder; and
      - abrogation of obligations under international law and accountability for (war) crimes committed.

      Israel as supremacist "Jewish State" is guilty on all counts. The answer to the injustice of supremacist "Jewish State" is justice.

      Jews of the US and elsewhere should internalize that fact.

    • >> No other people on this planet have been persecuted the way Jews have and for the length of time this has continued.

      And Jews haven't been persecuted the way other people on this planet have and for the length of time this has continued. But you don't see these other people using terrorism and ethnic cleansing to establish oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist states.

    • >> The great Jewish wish for many centuries was for a messiah who would gather the exiles back to Zion. That’s happened. It has been fulfilled, the fulfillment is Israel. ... The Holocaust was our crucifixion and Israel our resurrection.

      So...
      - Jews (the exiles) wished for messiah (a person) to gather them together.
      - Israel is this messiah, even though Israel is a state.
      - But Israel is also a resurrection (an act).
      - The crucifixion (the Holocaust) which should have happened to the messiah (Israel, when it's not busy being the resurrection) happened instead to Jews (the exiles).

      That's a pretty lousy analogy to justify the existence of an oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist "Jewish State" in Palestine.

      What history teaches is that the answer to injustice is justice.

      Seen through the lens of hateful and immoral Zio-supremacism, history's lesson becomes:

      The answer to injustice is justice unless the injustice is committed against Jews, in which case the answer to injustice is:
      - Jewish terrorism;
      - the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from their homes and lands; and
      - the establishment of an oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist "Jewish State" in Palestine.

      History is a good teacher. Zio-supremacists are lousy (and hateful and immoral) students.

      The point of progress is to move away from such mean things - to move toward justice, equality, accountability and morality.

Dershowitz attempted to defend himself, comparing his assailants to Meir Kahane and denouncing their racism. But his appeals were barely audible over the shouted cross talk and frenzied cheers of the audience.

      - Do citizens of an occupying state have a legal right to purchase property in territories occupied by their state from a member of the occupied community?
      - Does a member of the occupied community have a legal right to sell property to citizens of the occupying state?

    • >> The Jewish state offers guaranteed citizenship to any Jew, any Jew who can go to Israel will be guaranteed his safety.

      Right. You're saying that just as "Jewish State" helps Jews, African states should help Africans. The implication is that "Jewish State" shouldn't help Africans, and no state other than a "Jewish State" should help Jews.

      If that's not the implication, then what is your problem with Africans seeking refuge in Israel?

      >> And tell me, African states are all hellholes, everywhere Africans go they fill their land with crime and poverty, why should we expect Israel to be any different?

      Interesting: The Zio-supremacist defence of Israel has progressed from "It's no worse than Saudi Arabia or Mali" to "Why should Israel be any different than African hell-holes?"

      I can't wait for the "Israel isn't as quite as bad as North Korea" defence...

    • >> Why is it that all those dozens of other African-ruled states, aren’t helping these so-called “refugees?” Could it be that Africans simply don’t care about other Africans?

      You appear to be suggesting that no state in the world should ever again offer assistance to any Jew in need now that a "Jewish State" exists. That's a foolish and dangerous game to play with other people's lives.
