  • Obama to sign AIPAC-promoted trade bill that legitimizes Israeli occupation and fights BDS
    • || peterpeters: The settlements are not a problem. They are such a small area of land. Many Arabs live as a protected minority in Israel, so I don’t see why a few Jews shouldn’t be able to live in Israel-controlled territory that is majority Arab. ||

      Either you're Steve Grover under a new name, or you've got the same knack for lame "zingers".

      The "Arab" citizens of Israel are Israelis. They are where they have a right to be.

      The Jewish Israelis occupying and colonizing land outside of Israel's / Partition borders are hateful and immoral Zio-supremacist criminals. They are where they have no right to be.

      But you already knew that.

  • 'Let the one-state era begin'-- Tom Friedman explains there will never be a Palestinian state
    • || MaxNarr: He is simply a self hating Jew ... ||

      ...says the Jew-hating Zio-supremacist.

      || ... Are Jews not stabbed on a daily basis? ||

      Meanwhile, after almost 70 years, non-Jews continue to be oppressed, tortured and killed and their lands stolen, occupied and colonized.

      I'm with you: Let's hold accountable all responsible parties on both sides, and let's insist on justice, accountability and equality in I-P.

    • ... How did we get there? So many people stuck knives into the peace process it’s hard to know who delivered the mortal blow. ...

      It was a death of a thousand cuts, each one delivered by hateful and immoral Zio-supremacists for whom the existence of Israel as a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" in as much as possible of Palestine easily and greedily outweighed:
      - justice, accountability and equality in I-P; and
      - the notion of two secular and democratic states of and for their respective citizens, immigrants, expats and refugees, equally.

  • Cartoon: Netanyahu plans fortress Israel to protect against 'wild beasts'
    • || amigo: Man the battlements , there is an octogenarian Arab beast ,outside armed to the teeth with a crossbow , disguised as a walking stick . ||

      I'm surprised Bibi hasn't already mowed him down the way Israeli Devastation Forces assassins mow down Gazans who get too close to the Israeli Dehumanization Fence.

  • Nobody cares that Bernie Sanders is Jewish
    • || Sibiriak: ... Some 50 million Christian Zionists think events in Israel are key to human salvation. ... ||

      { Ils sont fous, ces Américains! }

    • || Steve Grover: ... when Bernie moves the U.S. Embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem the Capital of Israel ... ||

      Jerusalem isn't the capital of Israel - it's a Free City under military occupation and colonization by the (war) criminal "Jewish State" of Israel.

      But you already knew that and maybe this was just another one of your so-called "zingers".

    • || hophmi: It’s safe to be an assimilated Jew. These are the kind of Jews Phil Weiss likes. ... ||

      1. Are you saying that Jewish Americans should remain apart from their fellow, non-Jewish Americans?

      2. Should non-Jewish Americans remain apart from Jewish Americans? What kind of non-Jewish Americans do you like?

      3. Should "Arab" Israelis remain apart from non-"Arab" Israelis? What kind of "Arab" Israelis do you like?

    • || Annie Robbins: ... evidently phil doesn’t follow all the comment threads here (shock of shock!) at mondoweiss or else he’s thumbing his nose at yonah’s total freak out yesterday when shmuel referenced “jewish paranoia”. actually shmuel’s reference was “zionist paranoia” (i think). and i guess “paranoia” was just too much incitement for yonah and the backlash was outrageous! ... ||

      It was quite a show. y.f. ranted, slavered and raved...but at least he didn't scoff. :-)

    • ... The plain truth is that Americans accept Jews. ...

      And there's no reason that they shouldn't: Americans who happen to be Jewish are still Americans, and America is their homeland.

      But anti-Semitic, Jew-hating Zio-supremacists are doing their damnedest to f*ck that up for Jewish Americans (and for Jewish citizens of other countries) by insisting that they must be loyal to a foreign "Jewish State" named Israel - a colonialist, (war) criminal and religion-supremacist state that purports to speak and act on behalf of all Jewish people in the world.

  • Palestinians call on Oscar nominees to reject Israel propaganda trip
    • || Mayhem: ... aiming to delegitimize to Jews who are the true indigenous inhabitants of Palestine ... ||

      Except that they were not and are not. "Jewish" is a religion-based identity, not an indigenous inhabitant credential.

      The non-Jewish and Jewish inhabitants of the geographic region of (Mandate) Palestine were and are the indigenous inhabitants of Palestine.

    • || Maximus Decimus Meridius: Not unless she cultivates another facial expression. The one she’s got has become a tad boring. ... ||

      I'll have to disagree.

      || ... Anyway, even if we disagree over whether Johansson is going to challenge Meryl Streep’s record of Oscar noms ... ||

      I doubt she will. But I don't put much stock in Oscar nominations.

      || ... I think we can agree that the Sodastream affair hasn’t actually enhanced her image, even if you believe that getting on the cover of a Hungarian magazine means it hasn’t damaged it. ... ||

      Fair enough - I agree.

      :-)

    • || Maximus Decimus Meridius: Some really top-notch publications there (not!) ... ||

      But they are publications and she...
      - is relevant enough to be
      - isn't so toxic that these publications don't want her to be
      ...on their front covers.

      || ... But I suppose it’s hard to measure these things. ... ||

      I agree.

      || ... Johansson is a bad actress, so she’s probably not going to have much of a career once the next vacant eyed blonde comes on the scene. ... ||

      I disagree.   :-)   I think she's actually a pretty capable actress who'll be around for some time to come.

      || ... However, I do think the Sodastream fiasco has had an impact on her image. It’s brought up all the time whenever she is discussed. ... ||

      Not in any (spoken) conversation I've ever participated in (for what little that may be worth).

    • || MaxNarr: ... considering Israel is the native homeland of the Jewish people from antiquity. ||

      Only in your fevered, supremacist imagination.

    • || Annie Robbins: when was the last time she was on the cover of a magazine? ||

      According to this site:
      - Feb./2016 in both Hungary (Joy) and Germany (Cosmopolitan); and
      - a number of different magazines as recently as this past Fall (2015).

    • || Maximus Decimus Meridius: ... These actors will look at what the Sodastream gig did for the image of Deadeyes Johansson, and say ‘No thanks’. ... ||

      I honestly wasn't aware that the gig had had any detrimental impact on Ms. Johansson's image, at least as far as her acting career, her commercial viability and the movie-going public are concerned.

  • In yet another effort to revive dream of Jewish sovereignty, 'NYT' cites Thai restaurants in Tel Aviv
    • || spokelse: ... Zionism is just like any other ideology that supports a colonial settler project, no matter the aggrieved history claimed by the colonial perpetrators. The “everyone in the world is against us” pattern is only remarkable in it’s frequency of use by the oppressor. ||

      Zio-supremacists were told that donning Captain Israel underwear would make aggressor-victimhood easier. But they were lied to, and it remains a tough gig. :-(

    • || cott alexander: What exactly is ziosupremacism? ... ||

      Zionist supremacism, or religion-based supremacism by, of and for people who:
      - have undergone a religious conversion to Judaism; or
      - are descended from someone who underwent a religious conversion to Judaism.

      || ... Doesn’t every nation have a sense of its own uniqueness and therefore supremacy over others. For example, we Canadians, based mostly on pure conceit, have long held that we are “better” than the US. ||

      If Israel were a secular and democratic Israeli nation of and for all of its citizens, immigrants, expats and refugees, equally, your analogy would make sense.

      But given that Israel is a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" - a state primarily of and for Jewish Israelis and non-Israeli Jews - it doesn't.

    • || hophmi: ... It’s a thoroughly discredited idea, historically, politically, and morally. ||

      It's always amusing when Zio-supremacists appeal to morality even as they vociferously and unapologetically:
      - advocate Jewish supremacism in/and a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" in as much as possible of Palestine; and
      - justify, excuse and/or defend the past and on-going (war) crimes committed by Zio-supremacists and the "Jewish State".

  • Did 'Hashomer Hatzair' shape Sanders's views on socialism and Israel?
    • || Boomer: ... I suppose this rhetorical trick, or tic, has been around for ages, but I think Don Rumsfeld deserves some credit for making it ubiquitous. ||

      That guy was pure evil.

    • || Boomer: Has any reporter ever asked any politician that question? ||

      Not sure, but the reply would be comprised of some combination of the following propaganda points:
      - ancient and/or eternal homeland of the Jewish people
      - exile of the Jewish people
      - praying for 2000 years to return / "next year in Jerusalem!"
      - the Holocaust
      - anti-Semitism / Jew hatred
      - self-(self-)determination
      - world's only "Jewish State"
      - it's not oppression, it's self-defence

    • Question: Are you a rapist?

      Non-answer: What does 'rapist' even mean? Do I enjoy the company of women? Yes, I do.

  • BDS movement faces attack in six state legislatures
    • || JustJessetr: You’re right! What a stunning argument! I take it all back and support BDS!

      NOT! ||

      Well of course you don't support BDS - you're part of the wasting disease. You're happy to continue existing even if it means completely destroying your host.

    • || JustJessetr: ... I think BDS is poison. ||

      A sort of chemotherapy intended to cure Israel of the wasting disease of oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and religion-supremacist "Jewish State" with which it is afflicted. All the more reason to support BDS.

    • || MaxNarr: We have declared war on the BDS movement plain and simple. We will not stop until it is obliterated. Be prepared for lawfare on a scale unheard of until this point, not only in the USA but across the globe. ||

      You are going to be THE saddest little Zio-supremacist when your { Thousand Year "Jewish State" } collapses. :-(

    • || amigo: ... What a country. ||

      What a (Jewish) state of affairs.

      Wrapping a wall around your country seems like a bad idea, kind of like fish deciding they'd all be much safer in a barrel...

    • || amigo: ... Does it also mean that the illegal squatter terrorists will have to climb over fences to burn Palestinian families or destroy olive trees.Hell , they wont like yahoo,s plans. ||

      Why does King Bibi hate his own Jewish subjects so much?!

    • “Netanyahu: We’ll Surround Israel With Fences ‘To Defend Ourselves Against Wild Beasts’

      The government is preparing a multi-year plan to surround Israel with security barriers, prime minister says.’ In the area that we live in, we must defend ourselves.’ ” ...

      Aggressor-victimhood sure is a tough gig. :-(

    • There's an ugly irony to the fact that the self-proclaimed Land of Freedom, Justice and Democracy continues to do everything in its power:
      - to safeguard Jewish supremacism in/and a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" in as much as possible of Palestine; and
      - to absolve the "Jewish State" of its past and on-going (war) crimes and its obligations under international law.

      I had a good laugh when Hillary Clinton - Zio-supremacist and hypocrite - took time out of her busy Israel-fellating schedule to express disgust at the "immorality" of the toxic water crisis in Flint, Michigan.

  • Maya Angelou stood with Palestinians, but Israeli military uses her for Black History Month hasbara
    • || yonah fredman: ... to me the IDF also stands for Jews taking a stand in the history of the world and saying, “no more powerlessness.” ||

      "No more powerlessness" - Adolf and ISIS stood and stand for the very same thing. And they share/d with Zio-supremacists the same belief: We are entitled to do unto others acts of injustice and immorality we would not have others do unto us.

      It's mighty convenient of you to overlook the fact that Zio-supremacist Jews chose and continue to choose to take their religion-supremacist stand on the necks of the non-Jews...
      - living in; and
      - driven from and prevented from returning to,
      ...Palestine.

    • || hophmi: ... Otherwise, you’re not permitted to be inspired by her. ||

      It's awfully nice - in a twisted, Zio-supremacist sort of way - that you and your co-collectivists continue to be inspired by Ms. Angelou not only to do unto others acts of injustice and immorality you would not have others do unto you, but to do them with courage.

  • Anti-Zionist protest at LGBTQ conference was smeared as anti-Semitic
    • || Herchel: Israel should really try to be as progressive as it’s Arab neighbors when it comes to gay rights. ||

      Israel is a "moral beacon" and "light unto the nations"...except when it's not as bad as Saudi Arabia, Mali and African "hell-holes".

  • Oscar swag bag includes ten-day VIP trip to Israel worth $55,000 (Updated)
    • Is the trip to Israel proper (i.e., Partition-borders Israel) or to the "'Greater' Israel" region that includes territories (such as Jerusalem) under occupation and colonization by the "Jewish State"? I did a Google search but couldn't find any information.

    • || rugal_b @ February 7, 2016, 11:10 am ||

      Hi, a4tech. :-)

  • Tel Aviv housecleaning service advertises higher rates for European help than Africans
    • Nothing says "moral beacon" and "light unto the nations" like paying black people less money for doing the same work as white people.

      I know, I know: Those black people have a better life in the "Jewish State" than they would elsewhere and, hey, at least the "Jewish State" isn't as bad as Saudi Arabia, Mali and African "hell-holes".

  • The irreconcilable differences of liberal Zionism
    • || Mooser: He may have held his nose, but the cat never got his tongue sandwich. ||

      Good thing it didn't - otherwise, he wouldn't have been able to "dialog" and we never would have had the privilege to enjoy gems such as:

      "I cannot consistently say that 'ethnic cleansing is never necessary'."

      " ... currently its [sic] not necessary."

      "If I was an adult in 1948, I probably would have supported whatever it took to create the state of Israel, and held my nose at actions that I could not possibly do myself."

      "I feel that the nakba [sic] was a necessary wrong ... "

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

      "My goal is peace, not 'justice'."

      "I personally don’t see a conflict with intentionally adjusting boundaries if the demographics change considerably to create a smaller Israel that is Jewish majority. "

      "There is some merit to the theme of ‘stop the “rape”, then address the dynamics of the conflict’ … "

    • All Zio-supremacists favour Jewish supremacism in/and a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" in as much as possible of Palestine.

      "Liberal Zionists" just happen to favour a "kinder, gentler" version of it. And they're more likely to "hold their noses" while their hardier co-collectivists do the dirty work.

  • Double standard seen as Israel sentences minors involved in Abu Khdeir murder to prison but no punitive measures
    • || Mayhem: ... no normal country has to endure the constant vilification from Palestinians unwilling to accept Israel’s right to exist. ... ||

      No normal country has to endure the constant vilification from an entire world unwilling to accept Islamic State's right to exist. But you don't see them crying like little girls about it. Captain Israel must be more than a little embarrassed right now... :-(

      What neither the Palestinians nor anyone else should be expected or required to accept are:
      - Israel's existence as an oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and religion-supremacist state;
      - its belligerence, intransigence and (war) criminal behaviour;
      - its refusal to honour its obligations under international law (including RoR of refugees); and
      - its refusal to enter into sincere negotiations for a just and mutually-beneficial peace.

      (Similar limitations apply to I.S.)

    • || Sibiriak: Alternately, if it’s wrong for non-Jews, it’s wrong for Jews. ... ||

      Most definitely.

      || ... Shouldn’t the goal be to get Israel to end house demolition etc., rather than than get Israel engage in house demolition without discrimination? ||

      Yes, it should. My comment was meant to address Herchel's feigned ignorance of the existing double-standard.

    • Page: 100
    • || Herchel: No punitive measures? You mean aside from a life sentence for the 17 year old and a 20 year sentence for the 16 year old? How exactly did you become so unmoored from reality? ... ||

      Punitive measures:

      “We are really disappointed feeling sad and angry,” said Amsam Abu Khdeir hours after the judgment was issued. She hoped the court would issue additional punitive measures against the family members of the minors ...

      “We want to treat them as they treat any Palestinian, to demolish their houses, and withdraw their nationality, and to get a lifetime in prison. ...

      Surely if it's good enough for non-Jews, it's good enough for Jews, yes?

    • || Jon66: Wow, I would never want my children in any army that was hesitant to get them killed. Those Israelis sure are idiots.

      ” No dumb bastard ever won a war by going out and dying for his country. He won it by making some other dumb bastard die for his country.” George S. Patton ||

      You appear to be suggesting that the "Jewish State" cleverly spares its own by having "other dumb bastards" die on its behalf. I'm not sure that that represents good PR for the "Jewish State".

    • || Steve Grover: I just got off the phone with Col. Goldfus. I asked him why is he coming? And he told it was just because he wanted to see eljay use the word “Zio-Supremacist” one more time. ||

      Funny, he told me he's coming because he considers America to be a highly-lucrative market for his brand of snake oil.

      Anyway, have him talk to MaxNarr, who'll be more than happy to shout "Zio-supreme", snap off a few salutes and lick his master's boots.

    • ... Col. Goldfus is a fluent English speaker and he will be presenting on the following subject: Hizbullah – 2006 to 2016 – A 10 Year Analysis; A Five Year Prognosis. ...

      Please be advised that Mr. Goldfus, a loyal Zio-supremacist, will not discuss or answer any questions relating to Israel's:
      - status as a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" instead of a secular and democratic Israeli state of and for all of its citizen, immigrants, expats and refugees, equally;
      - decades-long and on-going campaign of aggression, oppression, theft, colonization, destruction, torture and murder;
      - refusal to honour its obligations under international law (including RoR of refugees);
      - refusal to accept responsibility and accountability for its past and on-going (war) crimes; and

  • Bernie Sanders' spirituality is resonating with young religious 'None's
    • ... Everybody practices religion in a different way. To me I would not be here tonight, I would not be running for president of the United States if I did not have very strong religious and spiritual feelings. I believe as a human being that the pain one person feels– if we have children who are hungry in America, if we have elderly people who can’t afford their prescription drugs– you know what, that impacts you, that impacts me, and I worry very much about a society where some people spiritually say, It doesnt matter to me, I got it, I don’t care about other people. So my spirituality is that we are all in this together. And that when children go hungry, when veterans sleep out on the street, that impacts me. That’s my very strong spiritual feeling. ...

      I don't see anything spiritual - having to do with religion, faith or the ethereal - about caring for all your fellow beings.

      I do see a lot of hypocrisy in claiming to care for all your fellow beings while supporting supremacism (of any kind) for some of them.

  • Israeli military reportedly seeks to censor private Facebook pages commenting on national security
    • A "moral beacon", "Western-style democracy" and "light unto the nations" state extends the scope of on-going military censorship to social media.

      It all sounds pretty grim...until you're reminded that Israel isn't quite as bad as Saudi Arabia, Mali and African "hell-holes".

      It's good to know that when the tide finally does turn against the Zio-supremacist, (war) criminal state of Israel and justice, accountability and equality are finally applied to the I-P issue:
      - you will continue acknowledge the reality of civilized people tending to support other civilized people; and
      - you won't suddenly starting screaming anti-Semitism and "Jew hatred".

      Much respect to you, Shmuel.

    • || yonah fredman: ... a misapprehension of reality is really insufficient to label a person or a reaction as paranoid. It is a loaded word and don’t pretend that it’s some innocuous word to be looked up in a dictionary. The word is 100 in toxicity, whereas you want a word (if you are seeking light rather than heat, accuracy rather than fervor) that measures between 37 and 50. ... it is a word that reflects a desire to communicate with those who agree with your perception rather than those who might disagree. ... ||

      Thanks for explaining why you:
      - avoid words that fully describe the evils, the injustices and the immorality of Zio-supremacism, the "Jewish State" project and related past and on-going (war) crimes; and, instead,
      - use words that "measure between 37 and 50" and invite "dialog" rather than "scoffing".

      Unlike you, your hardier co-collectivists - guys like ivri and MaxNarr - wear their hatefulness and immorality on their sleeves. It's ugly, but at least one knows exactly where they stand.

  • Israeli designer eroticizes the Palestinian keffiyeh
    • || Chouk: An important thing is that today, again, “human flesh traffickers” use the current misery in Eastern Europe to exploit women and young people: if the person in the photo was of your family, would you be indifferent? You complain about keffiyeh but not this woman exhibited disrespectful and demeaning manner. I am shocked and disappointed (135 comments) anyone have noted. Nothing changes. Speak out solidarity. ||

      The young woman in the photos appears to be a model doing the job of modelling clothes - a job for which she presumably is paid. I don't see anything disrespectful or demeaning in those photos, and I don't see any evidence of exploitation. If she was my (much younger) sister or niece, I'd congratulate her on her photo shoot.

      “Hath not a Jew eyes? hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer, as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? if you tickle us, do we not laugh? if you poison us, do we not die? and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? “ ||

      Those are good words.

      It may be difficult for you to accept, but they also apply to non-Jews, non-Israelis and non-Zionists.

      It may also be difficult for you to accept that nowhere in those words is there any justification for:
      - Zio-supremacism; or
      - an oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and religion-supremacist "Jewish State"; or
      - any of the past and on-going (war) crimes committed by you, your co-collectivists and/or your state.

    • || Steve Grover: ... Would eljay ask Marnie why she hates Jewish Israeli women? ||

      Why would I ask her that? She seems to have a problem with how "most Jewish Israeli women dress", not with "most Jewish Israeli women" or "Jewish Israeli women" or even "the Jews".

      If her comment upsets you, why don't you just put her in her place like a real man would? I'm sure you'd find it satisfying and, who knows, maybe she'd even like it.

      I don’t know if the Nazis would view this as appropriate or not, but it does seem more offensive than borrowing a cloth pattern. ||

      I condemn Mr. Shanab's words and actions. Instead of attacking (the) Jews, he should stick to attacking the real criminals: The hateful and immoral Zio-supremacists responsible for the oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and religion-supremacist "Jewish State" project and all related past and on-going (war) crimes and intransigence.

      As for his store, he should re-name it "Death by Zionism" and put on display mannequins being subjected to all manner of (war) criminal obscenities by Zio-supremacist civilians and members of the Israeli Devastation and Dehumanization Forces.

      - "keffiyeh" is "... a traditional Middle Eastern headdress fashioned from a square scarf."
      - "Palestinian keffiyeh" is "... a gender-neutral chequered black and white scarf that is usually worn around the neck or head."

      If "(Palestinian) keffiyeh" is the scarf - worn on the head, around the shoulders, etc. - and not just the pattern(s) on fabric, is it really cultural appropriation to use the pattern(s) in Israeli (or even non-Israeli) dresses?

      Nothing wrong with Israelis - Jews and "demographic threat" non-Jews alike - making babies and building homes, as long as they do it within the legitimate / Partition borders of their state.

      But that doesn't change the fact that oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and religion-supremacist "Jewish State" has to go.

    • || Jackdaw: ... I just know that anyone reading won’t see the end of the Jewish State in their lifetime. ||

      You may be right, and it's a damned shame:
      - that the hatefulness and immorality of Zio-supremacism and the "Jewish State" project will continue to exist;
      - that its victims will continue to be denied justice, accountability and equality; and
      - that people like you exist who will continue to rejoice in the evil you have wrought.

    • || MaxNarr: This is ridiculous. Israel will defeat BDS just like we defeated the rocket threat. Don’t underestimate the strength and perseverance of the Jewish people! We have returned home and we will cling to our land. ||

      1. Why do you insist on anti-Semitically conflating Israel with all Jews and all Jews with Israel? (hophmi, you seeing this, yes?)

      2. Why do you hate the 20% of Israelis who are non-Jews?

      3. Every empire - whether it's a "Thousand Year Reich" or a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" - eventually falls. Keep that box of tissues nearby. :-(

    • || Jackdaw: Zionism survived earthquakes, deadly vipers and scorpions, malaria, attacks by hostile Arabs, pogroms, World Wars, political assassinations, psychotic leaders, the Nazis, the Holocaust, four wars with the Arab States, two Lebanon wars, Hezbollah, Iran, international terrorism from the PLO, Baader-Meinhoff, the Japanese Red Army, etc, etc. Do you really think Phil Weiss and BDS are going to bring Zionism to it’s knees? ... ||

      Maybe not. As you've pointed out, evil is disturbingly resilient.

  • British Parliamentarians pay homage to Dick Cheney during debate over ISIS
    • I think I liked rugal_b better when he was a4tech yammering on about the "disease of white supremacy".

    • || Mooser: No, the line was a one-sentence paean to the salutary effects of of romance and love! ... ||

      That - without a hint of misogyny or homophobia or even "disease of white supremacy" - is how I read it.

    • || Palikari: Cheney was much better than Biden, and Bush was certainly much better than Obama. Aww, I miss the good old days! ||

      Aww, you don't have to miss them: Just look in the mirror and you'll see that the "good old days" of pride in both evil and idiocy still exist.

      Feel better? :-)

    • || HarryLaw: Cheney admits visiting the dark side and to be complicit in the torturing of suspects, [waterboarding, a war crime] and said live on TV he would do it again. ... ||

      Cheney is a truly evil human being. He should be required to undergo for a period of six months any torture he proposes using on others. If it's good enough for "them", it should be good enough for him, too.

      || ... Obama said “we tortured some folks” but instead of prosecuting Cheney and other war criminals, as he is obliged to do under International law, said “we must look forward not back” ... ||

      And that was the very moment I lost all respect for Barry O.

  • Extremists vandalize Jerusalem church with Hebrew threats: 'Death to heathen Christians'

      Touché.

    • Israel dynamited the ancient 6th century Byzantine church St Barbara of Aboud on May 31, 2002, a rare relic of Christian past of the Holy Land. The Israeli military claimed that they were unaware of the church’s significance and demolished it by mistake.

      "It was a mistake! Okay, yes, we were maintaining a military occupation and illegal colonization of territory outside of Israel's / Partition borders. And, yes, we were sowing death and destruction everywhere. But, c'mon, we didn't know this church mattered. I mean, jeez, it's just a church fer chrissakes!"

    • .... “the year of vindication for Zion’s cause” ... “For [it is] the Lord’s day of revenge” ... “the Lord’s fury against all the nations” ... “For My sword has drunk its fill in heaven; behold, it shall come down upon Edom. … The sword of the Lord is filled with blood” ...

      So...is this "Jewish State" culture, ethnicity or civilization? I'm pretty sure it's not dessert topping or floor wax. (Sorry, Mooser.)
