  • They prayed for Gaza's dead. Now it's time to say the mourner's prayer for Zionism
    • Like any other form of injustice and immorality, Zionism needs a swift kick in the ass on its way out.

      ... for this new generation, all the emphasis on Jewish universal values of equality and justice which they learnt at home and synagogue and at the RSY Netzer youth movement, are clashing violently with how they see Israel behaving. ...

      The fact that - according to Zionists - most Jews support Jewish supremacism in/and a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" in as much as possible of Palestine indicates that equality and justice are not - or at least are not consistently - "Jewish universal values".

      Equality and justice are, however, values that many people - Jews and non-Jews alike, here on MW and elsewhere - do respect and advocate.

  • Israeli ambassador lodges anti-Semitism complaint against Dutch song mocking Israel's human right record
  • Being Palestinian
    • || catalan: ... Being not Jewish in America is one of the worst predicaments a human being can endure. ||

      That is an entirely untrue and shamefully anti-Semitic assertion. No-one suffers worse than Jews: Not anyone in Africa, not North Koreans in labour camps, not homosexuals in Arab countries and not women pretty much anywhere in the world.

  • Gaza killings are rending the Jewish community
    • ... There’s been some thuggishness in the liberal Zionist community. Andy Bachman, a leading liberal Zionist rabbi on the J Street “cabinet,” blames the protesters for the violence:

      Imagine thousands of protestors in Gaza marching on the Hamas leadership, demanding peaceful negotiations and recognition of a shared capital with shared legitimate claims. Would the response be hugs or bullets?

      Even with "liberal Zionists", it:
      - isn't about being as good as you can and should be;
      - is about not being so bad that you can't compare yourself to someone (you consider to be) worse to justify the evil you do.

  • Falsely accusing Palestinians of anti-Semitism is malicious
    • || Ampro: Natan Sharansky, chairman of the Jewish Agency, identifies the “three D’s of Anti-Semitism” as Demonization, Delegitimization, and Double-Standards. ... ||

      Zionists believe that the religion-based identity of Jewish grants to those who choose to hold it the "right" to do unto others acts of injustice and immorality they would not have others do unto them.

      Like all Zionist hypocrites, Sharansky has no problem with that particular double-standard.

  • Activists disrupt Philadelphia Orchestra's farewell performance before 'cultural diplomacy' tour to Israel
    • || Jackdaw: We all have one life to live. One shot. That’s it. ... ||

      Yup, we all have one life to live. One shot from an Israeli sniper's rifle. That's it.

      || ... These protestors have pitifully empty lives. Empty lives of their own design. ||

      Thankfully they don't have the disturbingly hateful and immoral lives of Zionists. Hateful and immoral lives of their own design.

  • Documenting Palestinian invisibility for 40 years -- an interview with James Zogby
    • || Nathan: ... Ironically, I’m the only one here with a pro-Palestinian agenda. ... ||

      There's nothing ironic about the fact that your "pro-Palestinian agenda", which...
      - allows Israel to keep most of what it has stolen;
      - allows Israel to remain a religion-supremacist "Jewish State";
      - absolves Israel of its obligations under international law (incl. RoR); and
      - absolves Israel of accountability for its past and on-going (war) crimes,
      ...is nothing more than the standard Zionist "pro-'Jewish State'" agenda.

    • || Nathan: ... one should at least be able to understand that the Jews do think that they are a people entitled to statehood. ... ||

      Only an anti-Semite would presume to know what "the Jews" collectively think.

  • 'NYT' columnist says killing Palestinian civilians is... good for Palestinians
    • || Yonah Fredman: ... Those who leave Gaza would be allowed to return without limitation.
      Visiting Israel is not envisioned. ... ||

      Which parts of non-Gaza Palestine does your vision permit the Palestinians of Prison Gaza to visit freely?

    • || Yonah Fredman: eljay- Gaza will be solved after the west bank is solved or simultaneous with such a resolution, which obviously is not on the near horizon. until then, yes, gaza will remain a prison in terms of importation of goods. ||

      Thank you for confirming - in an unusually clear and concise paragraph! - that your vision of a modus vivendi does not include justice, accountability or equality.

    • || Yonah Fredman: OSSinev, free flow of marketable goods out of Gaza to Israel and elsewhere. Free flow of people out of Gaza to world destinations. Third party inspections of goods brought into Gaza, with limitations to avoid a repeat of hezbollah’s rockets. Some have suggested creating man made islands where these items would be inspected. Others have suggested such a place (for inspections) can be set up on already existing territory. ||

      So...Gaza remains a prison and Israel remains its warden, but the inmates:
      - get to make and sell license plates; and
      - are occasionally granted short-term parole.

      Nice.

    • || Donald Johnson: That was a confusing comment ... you look for any and every excuse to dodge the issue. ||

      The Art of War Yonah

    • ... Rosner ...

      ... The Jewish sages had a famous, if not necessarily pleasant, saying that went something like this: Those who are kind to the cruel end up being cruel to the kind…

      I completely agree with Mr. Rosner: The world should stop being kind to cruel - and oppressive, colonialist, (war) criminal and religion-supremacist - Israel.

  • Israel detains Palestinian teen with severe head injury, again
  • UN head says Gazans 'caged in a toxic slum from birth to death' as human rights council votes to investigate Israel
    • || Mooser: ... The joke is that they cannot admit that it doesn’t work and change their approach.
      And that says even more about them than the whataboutism itself. ||

      I guess when you're convinced that your evil path is righteous, the only solution to opposition is to double-down on the evils you commit.

      Zionists don't seem to understand that they will be the undoing of the "Jewish State".

    • || Jackdaw: Young Gazan father immolates himself in protest agains HAMAS! ... ||

      It's a shame that this young man has harmed himself in protest. I look forward to:
      - Israel ending its decades-long military occupation and colonization of not-Israel; and
      - the citizens of a free and united Partitions-border Palestine being able to vote out Hamas and vote in a secular and democratic government.

      || ... Curse Hamas and their Western ‘useful idiots’, beginning with Mondoweiss. ||

      Curse Zionists and their 'useful idiots' throughout the world, beginning with those here on Mondoweiss.

    • || @aar: It would be interesting to see if mw had the reporting chops to list the current members on the unhrc. ... ||

      Being called out by the serial killer makes the serial killer a hypocrite but it doesn't transform the rapist into a virtuous man or absolve him of his past and on-going crimes.

      || ... What a joke. ||

      Yes, the whataboutism you Zionists constantly engage in is a very bad joke.

  • Statement: Israeli police using brutality and unnecessary force against peaceful protesters
    • || guyn: Surely these protests must have been initiated by Hamas… ||

      Hamas and anti-Semitism (a.k.a. "Jew hatred") are the only two possible reasons Palestinians would have for reacting to decades of Zionist oppression, dispossession, colonialism, (war) crimes and religion-based supremacism.

  • Holding Gaza close this Ramadan season and beyond
    • || Yonah Fredman: ... Personally I think the movement towards Jewish statehood was a natural occurrence given the historical context and the harmful exile of the Palestinians follows from the event quite harmfully and naturally. ... ||

      Core tenet of Zionism: Acts of injustice and immorality committed against Jews justify acts of injustice and immorality committed by Jews.

      It's a shame that Zionists like you insist on paving the way for the harming of Jews as part of a "natural occurrence given [a] historical context".

      || ... it is the role of the rejuvenated yehudi people to be resilient and move on to the next stage and undo the harm or ameliorate the harm or fess up to the harm, and that has not been the next stage. ... ||

      Of course it hasn't: The "rejuvenated yehudi people" (I'm assuming that some new code-phrase for "Jewish Zionists") continue to believe that the evil they do is virtue because they are entitled to be Jewish supremacists in a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" in as much as possible of Palestine.

      One can only hope that the "rejuvenated yehudi people" decide before too long to abandon Jewish supremacism (Zionism) and pursue instead the universal and consistent application of justice, accountability and equality.

  • On Gaza: The end will continue
    • || Jack Green: ... Palestinians oppress Israelis

      Running over Israelis is oppression.
      Stabbing Israelis is oppression.
      Shooting Israelis is oppression.
      Firing rockets at Israelis is oppression.
      Blowing up Israelis is oppression.
      Throwing rocks at Israelis is oppression. ||

      The rapist kidnaps women, chains them in his basement and routinely beats and rapes them. The women slap, scratch, punch and spit at the rapist. According to Zionist "logic", the victims are oppressing the rapist.

    • || Jon66: ... I don’t see a reason why all Israeli citizens can’t live equally in a Zionist state ... ||

      And Joe doesn't see a reason why all Joe's house inhabitants - including the women chained in his basement - can't live equally in a Rapist house.

    • || Jon66: Eljay,
      “in as much as possible of Palestine, ”
      Last time we had this discipussion you couldn’t define this phrase for me. Since you are using it again, can you tell me what it means? ||

      I defined it clearly. You refused to comprehend. I'm not going to play your little game again.

    • || Jon66: Echi,
      “All Zionists of course are all Zionists!”
      But are they all the same? ||

      Insofar as they all believe that the religion-based identity of Jewish comprises a right to Jewish supremacism in/and a religion-supremacist "Jewish State " in as much as possible of Palestine, yes, all Zionists are the same.

    • || zaid: 100 explosive device and not a single Israeli soldier killed! ||

      || Jackdaw: Don’t you wish. ||

      Are you claiming that one or more of those explosive devices has killed one or more Israeli soldiers? Got anything at all to back that up?

  • Peace begins with Israel ending the Nakba
    • || LostinAlaska: ... What Palestinians need is their George Washington ... ||

      One who will not - like the Palestinians' Gandhis - wind up in jail, in exile or dead.

    • || Emet: ... Pappe skillfully avoids placing blame on the Arabs for not accepting the 1947 Partition Plan, that the Jewish leadership at the time was. That plan would have given the Palestinians way more than what they are asking for today ... ||

      ...but much less than the 100% of their geographic homeland to which - as its indigenous inhabitants - they were entitled.

      || ... You are a sad man Pappe. ||

      And you're just another supremacist hypocrite.

    • || mon donut: ... Israel must take down it borders, the Jewish people must admit to not being a people, they must accept being a minority, they must forfeit any right to self determination and they must allow for Israel itself to be completely dissembled. ... ||

      Jews are ordinary people - citizens of homelands all over the world - who have chosen to hold the religion-based identity of Jewish. People are free to self-determine as Jewish, but that freedom does not comprise a right to a religion-supremacist "Jewish State".

      I believe that:
      - Israel should continue to exist as a secular and democratic state of and for all of its Israeli citizens, immigrants, expats and refugees, equally;
      - it should exist alongside a secular and democratic state of and for all of its Palestinian citizens, immigrants, expats and refugees, equally; and
      - the fate of both states (e.g., to remain independent or to unify) should be determined democratically by their respective populations.

      Naturally, to Zionists justice, accountability and equality are anti-Semitic and anyone who supports those ideals is motivated solely by "Jew-hatred".

  • Murder as a way to make a political point
    • Not every anti-Zionist opposes and condemns Zionism because s/he believes in the universal and consistent application of justice, accountability and equality.

      But every Zionist advocates, supports, justifies and defends Zionism because s/he believes that the religion-based identity of Jewish comprises a right to Jewish supremacism in/and a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" in as much as possible of Palestine.

      There are moral reasons for opposing and condemning Zionism.
      There are no moral reasons for advocating, supporting, justifying or defending it.

  • 'NYT' writer who claims Zionism and human rights are intertwined ignores Palestinians
    • || joycejamie: ... Racism — ” …the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to dominate others ” Kinda inherent in the idea that the Jewish people have the right to dominate non-Jews. Maybe Zionism could exist with all the human rights for everyone without the preference for one ethnic group/religion, but so far we haven’t seen it ||

      And you won't see it, because Zionism is a supremacist ideology.

      Zionists have this strange notion that being a Jewish supremacist is somehow more just and moral than being any other type (anti-Jewish / -black / -gay / -immigrant) of supremacist. But it isn't.

      It is, however, just as hypocritical: Like all other birds of their hateful and immoral feather, Zionists believe that they are entitled to do unto others acts of injustice and immorality they would not have others do unto them.

    • For years Jim has selflessly volunteered to work with the homeless and underprivileged in his community.

      For years Jim has also kidnapped women, chained them in his basement and raped them.

    • || Mooser: “Damned if I can figure out why you Zionists hate Jews so much.”

      You don’t know that?
      They hate us because we failed Zionism. ... ||

      I suppose that makes sense. Why, even a Zionist like y.f. is a disappointment, cherishing as he does "pastrami on rye, mit a pickle and chicken soup" instead of Israeli hummus and cherry tomatoes.

    • || @aa: This isn’t the WWE or some sporting event. There is no such concept of’fair’ when each side is laying claim to the same land. The more powerful side prevails with absolutely zero obligation to sustain casualties in order to preserve some sense of false proportionality ||

      And if/when Israel comes under real attack (not burning kites and "terror tunnels") and Israelis are being massacred, you'll be the first to tell Israelis (or, as you anti-Semitically like to refer to them, "the Jews") to shut the f*ck up because "[t]here is no such concept of’fair’ when each side is laying claim to the same land".

      Damned if I can figure out why you Zionists hate Jews so much.

      A day in court will determine that some of the killers are not Israeli? Interesting. I wonder if the court will also be able to determine who these not-Israeli killers are.

    • || Jackdaw: ... We will find out soon enough just how many full fledged Hamas members died in the protests. ... The truth will out. ||

      I realize that you and jon s are unable (or unwilling) to understand this but there's nothing just or moral about massacring people, regardless of whether they belong to Hamas or Zionism.

      I cannot understand why Zionists like you and jon s work so hard to undermine international laws and human rights and the protections they are meant to afford all people including Zionist and non-Zionist Jews (the people you claim to care about).

  • Nikki Haley blames Iran, Hamas for deaths of Palestinian protesters, as UN officials call to investigate Israel
    • || Jackdaw: ... Hamas, which won’t make peace with the PA and Egypt, much less the Jews. ||

      It's hard to know whether the constant conflation by Zionists of Israel with all Jews and all Jews with Israel is:
      - deliberate anti-Semitism; or
      - an involuntary, anti-Semitic tic.

    • || Jackdaw: Israel plasters Gaza with leaflets telling Gazans to stay home.
      Hamas blares through loudspeakers telling Gazans to break down the fence and invade Israel.

      It’s Israel’s fault that people are killed? ||

      The rapist warns the victims chained in his basement that they must to submit to him.
      The victims ignore the rapist and lash out at him.
      The rapist brutally assaults his victims and stabs a couple of them to death to teach the rest a lesson.

      It's the rapist's fault that women are killed?

      ------------------------------------------

      Every day, in every way, Zionists do their best to undermine international laws and human rights and the protections they are meant to afford all people including Jews.

      Why do Zionists hate Jews so much?!

  • 1918, 1948, 2018: World War I, the Nakba, and the rise of ethnic nationalism
  • Fighting Nakba denial
    • || RoHa: There is an important difference between the Holocaust and the Nakba.

      The Holocaust is over.

      The Nakba is still going on. ... ||

      Another important difference is that the Holocaust was done by others unto Jews, while Palestinians are making supremacist Jews (Zionists) do the Nakba unto others.

      || ... The Zionists are still driving Palestinians from their homes, still destroying farms and villages, still killing, still stealing land. ||

      Isn't it shameful what Palestinians are making those poor Zionists do?!

  • Live Blog: Protests continue as Palestinians begin holding funerals for 61 killed in Gaza

      Nazi shit didn't start with death camps. Murderous occupation and colonialism aren't the end of "Jewish State" shit. Hold your nose and have a little faith in your fellow Zionists.

    • Mr. Erdan has determined that Gaza protesters are Nazis and terrorists.

      Nazis and terrorists are not-innocent people.

      According to jon s - and, it seems, Mr. Erdan - that means they can be massacred.

      And, so, Israel massacres them.
