  • How can a 'New York Times' reader possibly know what is truly happening in Israel/Palestine?
    • || Mayhem: And Mondoweiss reciprocates by presenting its blind-sided view of reality in Israel/Palestine!
      You would get the impression around here that Palestinians were the only people getting killed in this conflict. ||

      Never mind the blind-sided fact that for years the rapist, with impunity, has been kidnapping women, chaining them in his basement and violently abusing them both physically and sexually.

      Gotta stay focused on the pure, unvarnished truth that the women who have spent time in the home of this respected local businessman have slapped, punched and even bitten him!

      Sure, what he's doing might be wrong in the eyes of some people but, hey, at least he's not a serial killer!

  • After 22 years it's time to stop pretending about the peace process
    • || mcohen.: The only way forward is to annexe and secure the area below highway 1 ... ||

      That is a Zio-supremacist way forward, but it's not the only way forward.

  • 'NYT' preaches to Palestinians about launching 'intifadas'
    • || emmh: ... I think the NYT article was definitely on the side of the Palestinians. ... ||

      Of course it was. It stated that Palestinians committed "brutal terrorism" while Israelis were "tough Israeli pioneers".

      It stated that Palestinians engaged in "suicide bombings and other acts of terrorism, intifadas, rocket barrages" while Israelis engaged in "unceasing expansion of settlements".

      It made no mention whatsoever of the fact that Israel:
      - has been stealing, occupying and colonizing Palestinian land for almost 70 years;
      - has been oppressing, torturing and killing Palestinians for almost 70 years;
      - has been committing (war) crimes (including terrorism and ethnic cleansing) with impunity for almost 70 years;
      - refuses to end its occupation and colonization of Palestine; and
      - refuses to honour its obligations under international law (including RoR of Israeli refugees).

      I hope the NYT doesn't get in trouble for writing such a rabidly pro-Palestinian article!

  • 'NYT' reporters parrot Israeli claims re cherry tomato
    • The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a speech to the United Nations General Assembly yesterday and touted Israeli “perfection” of the cherry tomato ...

      Well-known mob boss Giacomo "Jack" Tantipiedi (yonah shudders, then scoffs) gives a speech at a local town hall meeting and touts the high quality of his company's cement. ("It's not just the ingredients that make it strong - it's the people!")

  • To condemn, or not to condemn
    • || yonah fredman: The infuriating (and unjust) occupation and leadership of Netanyahu (and his coalition) ... ||

      ... and the unwavering, "no light between" support he gets from Zio-supremacist Jews in Israel and from Zio-supremacists around the world.

      The people who believe:
      - in Jewish supremacism in/and a supremacist "Jewish State" in as much as possible of Palestine;
      - that acts of injustice and immorality committed against Jews justify acts of injustice and immorality committed by Jews;
      - that Jews are entitled to do unto others acts of injustice and immorality they would not have others do unto them; and
      - that loyalty to a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" is an essential part of being Jewish.

    • || Mooser: “Yonah” you better be careful. You keep on asking incisive questions like that, and your comments will be turned over to Anna Augustovsky for moderation. ||

      Easy there, Mooser, or he might just end up having a severe scoffing fit! ;-)

    • || Lorensacho: ... The difference between Israel and Palestine is when an Israeli kills a civilian he or she is brought to justice. ... ||

      Except for when he or she is not brought to justice.

      ... Palestinians just celebrate the killing of Israelis. ||

      Except for when they don't celebrate the killing of Israelis.

      Unlike Israel, however, Palestine hasn't spent the past almost 70 years stealing, occupying and colonizing Israel's territory and refusing to honour its obligations under international law.

    • || zaid: the slain settler is an IDF officer. ||


    • I condemn the murders.

  • Netanyahu's 44 seconds of silence at UN are being widely mocked -- 'pathetic,' 'creepy'
    • || y_litvin: check it: link to ||

      ... The Israeli government and media outlets persistently portray the Palestinian side as a threat to the very existence of Israelis, the so-called “demographic threat”. ...

      This is new. The way I've seen it portrayed numerous times, the Palestinian side is a threat to the existence of Israel as a "Jewish State". (Not sure about it being a threat to "Israelis", 20% of whom are not Jewish.)

    • || eljay: ... I understand and agree with what your saying. ... ||

      Correction: ... with what you're saying. ...

      (Sorry, RoHa!)

    • || Maximus Decimus Meridius: @eljay My point is that until about the 19th century, nobody thought in terms of ‘homelands’ or ethnicities. The Jews were regarded more as a religious minority – and that was a very bad thing to be in pre-modern Europe – than as foreigners without a ‘homeland’. ||

      I understand and agree with what your saying. But in your earlier post, in response to this statement...

      " ... the Jews in Europe were the only people (apart from the gypsies) who had no homeland ... " (rhetorically?) asked "Is that true?"

      My response was directed at that (rhetorical?) question.

    • || Maximus Decimus Meridius: “And the fact that the Jews in Europe were the only people (apart from the gypsies) who had no homeland made them all the more suspicious and fear-inspiring. ”

      Is that true? It sounds like a Zionist canard to me. ... ||

      Every person in Europe had a homeland. These homelands may not have treated all of their citizens properly, but that doesn't mean that Jewish citizens had no homelands and it doesn't mean that they were entitled to a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" elsewhere in the world and to commit (war) crimes to realize it.

    • || talknic: ... Netanyahu says he’s willing to negotiate with the Palestinians, no pre-conditions …

      He then immediately names two preconditions ...

      Netanyahu never once says Israel will end the occupation or stop the illegal settlements ... ||

      King Bibi reads from the same Zio-supremacist playbook as his subjects: Always "peace"*, but never - ever - justice, accountability and equality.
      *Where "peace" means that Israel:
      - gets to keep as much as possible of what it has stolen;
      - is absolved of responsibility and accountability for its past and on-going (war) crimes;
      - is absolved of its obligations under international law (including RoR of refugees); and
      - remains a religion-supremacist "Jewish State".

    • Someone needs to edit this video to include sounds of people in the audience farting during the period of silence. King Bibi's glare might make more sense.

      ... subjects were exposed to simulated embarrassment predicaments over a prolonged fart. Period of time! [fart sound] Sorry.

  • As Palestine's flag is raised at U.N., Abbas dumps Oslo security obligations
    • || hophmi @ October 1, 2015, 10:46 am ||

      No point liberating the victim from the rapist's basement and helping her get her life back on track, while holding the criminal accountable for his past and on-going crimes. Better to just let her remain chained and raped - but well-fed and nicely-clothed - in his basement.


  • Parents of slain Palestinian teen say Israeli forces planted knife
    • || Jackdaw: “Lots of men beat their wives, so it’s OK ”

      No ... ||

      Glad to hear it.

      || ... and it’s not okay for a soldier or policeman to panic and use lethal force, but it happens all the time. ... ||

      I agree. And I think it's shameful that, far too often, the soldiers or officers are not held accountable for their actions.

      || ... Here’s an interesting story about a Cleveland police officer who executed two unarmed occupants of car, and was found not guilty by a Judge. ... ||

      A travesty of justice, IMO.

      And I don't see how it changes anything regarding the murder of Ms. al-Hashlamoun.

    • || Mooser: And that is why it is allright for Israel to have illegal checkpoints in illegally occupied areas, and shoot young women down at these checkpoints? Don’t quite see the connection. ... ||

      Lots of men beat their wives, so it's OK for Zio-supremacist Joe (somewhere, yonah scoffs) to beat his. I'll never understand this "let's strive to be just a little bit better than the worst" mentality.

    • || Jackdaw: @eljay I’m not saying that the killing was justified. ... ||

      Yup, I got that part. And yet immediately after you say it wasn't justified, you do your best to try to justify it.

      || ... I’m saying that it’s not totally unreasonable that a soldier might suspect that she was armed and dangerous. ... ||

      I agree. So he shot her and she didn't stab him, shoot him or blow anything up. At that point, it's not totally unreasonable that a soldier might start to suspect that she was not armed and dangerous.

      || ... Keep in mind the presence of the knife and the fact that warning shots were fired to no avail. ... ||

      Yup, to no avail. No matter how much they yelled at her or shot at her, the soldiers were simply unable to get the woman to stab them or to shoot them or to blow them up.

      || ... The police in many civilized, Western countries have, and continue to do, the same, if not worse.

      Aside from the fact that it wasn't Israeli police who did the killing, and aside from the fact that the killing took place in occupied territory outside of Israel's / Partition borders, none of those civilized, Western countries is a "moral beacon" with the "most moral army in the world".

      || ... What country to you come from? ... ||

      One that does not have trigger-happy occupation soldiers manning armed checkpoints.

    • || Jackdaw: ... At the time of the killing, however, the soldiers had no idea whether or not she had a pistol or explosive device under her burqa. ... ||

      The fact that she did not shoot them or detonate an explosive device when she was standing right next to them should have been the first clue that she had neither a pistol nor an explosive device.

      The fact that she did not shoot them or detonate an explosive device when they shot her should have been the second clue.

      The fact that she did not shoot them or detonate an explosive device as she stepped away from them should have been the third clue.

      The fact that she did not shoot them or detonate an explosive device once she was on the other side of the barrier from them should have been the fourth clue.

      So what did the occupation-forces soldiers do with all these clues? They shot her again. Then they shot her some more. And then they left her to die.

    • || hophmi: ... I think I made my point. ... ||

      And, as usual, your point is that you're a hateful and immoral Zio-supremacist and a hypocrite.

      || ... When you have a pro-Palestinian Holocaust survivor, you’ll make sure to prominently mention her past, without acknowledging that most Holocaust survivors see things very differently from the way she sees them. ||

      And when people have Zio-supremacist Holocaust survivors such as Elie Wiesel, they make sure to prominently mention his past without acknowledging that other Holocaust survivors see things differently from the way he does. But that doesn't bother you.

    • || hophmi: You’ve never quite explained why Rosengarten’s survivor background is relevant ... ||

      - Why is it irrelevant?
      - Why is it less-relevant than Elie Wiesel's survivor background?
      - Have you ever complained when Elie Wiesel's survivor background it mentioned?
      - Or are you simply suggesting that a person's Holocaust-survival background should only be used to promote Jewish supremacism in/and a supremacist "Jewish State" (and not to promote justice, accountability and equality)?

    • || jon s: ... we desperately need to find the way to share the land, which is the homeland of both peoples. ... ||

      The geographic region of (Mandate) Palestine was the homeland of Palestinians. The geographic region of Partition-borders Israel is the homeland of Israelis (including refugees). What remains outside of Partition-borders Israel is the homeland of the people from that geographic region.

      Neither (Mandate) Palestine nor Partition-borders Israel nor what remains outside of Partition borders Israel was or is the ("historic") homeland of every person in the world who:
      - is Jewish by virtue of being descended from someone who underwent a religious conversion to Judaism; or
      - who becomes Jewish by undergoing a religious conversion to Judaism.

    • || jon s: ... I’d like to add that it’s a relief to respond to a commenter who writes seriously and thoughtfully and in a civil tone, and mentions “peace” as a goal. ||

      I want peace as a goal. Unlike you, however, I believe in a peace that's based on and comprises justice, accountability and equality, and not a "peace" that:
      - absolves Israel of its past and on-going (war) crimes;
      - absolves Israel of its obligations under international law;
      - allows Israel keep as much as possible of what it has stolen; and
      - upholds Jewish supremacism in/and a religion-supremacist "Jewish State".

    • || Jackdaw: ... Kris. You, Mooser and your fellow travelers need to stop obsessing and accept that, ‘shit happens’. Can you do that? ||

    • || Mayhem: ... not even a whimper amongst the MW proletariat about the blatant anti-semitism in Abbas’ remarks. ... ||

      From (are they the official anti-"Pallywag brigade"?):

      PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “ ... The Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is ours, and they have no right to defile them with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem.”

      Assuming that by "filthy" he means "Jewish" (and not "thieving" or "oppressors'" or "colonialist" or some other adjective that describes the feet of hateful and immoral Zio-supremacists), I condemn his remarks.

      But how, exactly, do his remarks justify:
      - Jewish supremacism in/and a supremacist "Jewish State";
      - any of Israel's almost 70 years' worth of past and on-going (war) crimes (incl. theft, occupation, colonization, oppression, torture and murder); and
      - Israel's refusal to honour its obligations under international law (incl. RoR of Israeli refugees)?

      (Where are your whimpers of condemnation? Oh, that's right: They're drowned out by your roars of approval.)

    • || Mayhem: ... IDF not going to kill someone for no reason at all knowing what flack they might expect from the Pallywag brigade. ||

      Suddenly Israel gives a f*ck about what the "Pallywag brigade" (I'm surprised that term made it through moderation) has to say? Bullshit. The IDF has been executing Palestinians and committing (war) crimes with impunity for almost 70 years, and it shows no sign of changing its ways.

  • It was heroic to throw a brick at Stonewall but Palestinians who throw stones can be shot

      Rubber-coated bullets, live ammunition, white phosphorus, DU munitions and cluster bombs kill and maim people, too. Jewish supremacists and the supremacist "Jewish State" have been actually killing and maiming - and actually torturing and oppressing - people for almost 70 years.

      Yup. Not every Israeli is a hateful and immoral supremacist. The same cannot be said for Zio-supremacists.

    • It's interesting that even when Israel is not impacted by something, Zio-supremacists - who suffer compulsive personality disorder and (im)moral narcissism - manage to get their panties in a knot.

      Even more interesting is the Simon Wiesenthal Centre's bit of whataboutery that could - and perhaps should, SWC? - be construed as a call to heavily-sanction, attack and/or effect regime change in Israel. (If it's good enough for Syria and Iran, it's good enough for Israel...right, SWC?)

      It's a shame that so many hateful and immoral people exist who support Jewish supremacism in/and a supremacist "Jewish State".

      || ... No one is going to sign on to the make-Jews-stateless program that you advocate. ||

      What lovely drama-queen hyperbole! :-)

      Not only have I never seen anyone advocate a "make-Jews-stateless" program (perhaps you could link to a direct quote?), but the absence of a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" does not render Jewish citizens of countries around the world stateless.

    • || Kay24: ... It says a lot about a people who cannot learn from what happened to them, that tragedy, and instead become like those whose hands they suffered from. ||

      Yes, it's tragic that Zio-supremacists do not teach their children to advocate and support the universal and consistent application of justice, accountability and equality, and instead teach them that:
      - acts of injustice and immorality committed against Jews justify acts of injustice and immorality committed by Jews; and
      - Jews are entitled to do unto others acts of injustice and immorality they would not have others do unto them.

      One shudders to think what Zio-supremacists would be teaching their kids if Israel weren't a "moral beacon" and "light unto the nations" state...

  • Rev. Graylan Hagler disinvited to speak on Palestine, sent death threats

      - exists as an oppressive, colonialist, expansionist, belligerent, intransigent and religion-supremacist state;
      - is only selectively committed to "human dignity"; and
      - serves as a reminder that Jewish supremacism in/and a supremacist "Jewish State" trump justice, accountability and equality.

      Israel is not a model state any more than the serial rapist - who similarly believes in free enterprise, democracy, human dignity and the courage to defend his values - is a model citizen.

      Yet another Zio-supremacist uses a great number of words:
      - to defend Israel by comparing it not to the best countries in the world but to the worst ("That serial rapist is a great guy because he's not a serial killer."); and
      - to completely gloss over the fact that Israel - an oppressive, colonialist and expansionist state conceived, established and maintained as a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" - has been committing (war) crimes for almost 70 years.

      Aggressor-victimhood sure is a tough - and verbose - gig! :-(

    • || Robert Schott: ... Some Jews who support the Palestinians are simply narcissists. ... ||

      But every single Jew (and non-Jew) who supports Jewish supremacism in/and a supremacist "Jewish State" is a hateful and immoral supremacist.

      || ... So to my Jewish friends here: Max Naumann. ||

      So to all Jewish (and non-Jewish) people here (and elsewhere): Support the universal and consistent application of justice, accountability and equality.

  • Which nation spends more on its military: Iran or Israel?

      - Israel exists as an oppressive state, a colonialist state, an expansionist state and religion-supremacist state. It has no right to exist in any of those forms.
      - Israel's victims are entitled to justice, accountability and equality. They should not be expected or required to negotiate away any of their rights.

      || ... Can you imagine if the early victims of the Arab/Muslim conquest of Judea and Samaria tried to negotiate with the Shieks and Caliphs as if they had been victorious in their battles and fights. ... ||

      No matter where on the planet or how far back in time their search takes them, Zio-supremacists never fail to look to the worst examples of human behaviour for guidance.

Israel is one of the only western countries where the secular government is encouraging the fundamentalists.” ...

      The hard-core Zio-supremacists do the dirty work while their more-fragile co-collectivists:
      - "hold their noses";
      - support/justify/excuse their actions; and
      - enjoy the benefits of Jewish supremacism in/and a "greater" supremacist "Jewish State".
