  • A Palestinian disfigured by tear gas canister reflects on change in his life
    • No person should ever be shot in the face with a tear-gas canister.  >:-(

      Zionists like jon s really need to recalibrate their fucked up "moral compasses" before Jews starting finding themselves on the receiving end of the shit Zionist Jews think it's acceptable to do unto others.

  • Israeli lawmaker: 'Jewish race is the greatest human capital, the smartest'
    • ... Miki Zohar: I’ll tell you one basic thing, so that maybe someone who’s sitting there at home would listen to me well, and maybe those who are sitting at the studios and at editorials would listen well to me:

      The public in the state of Israel is a public which belongs to the Jewish race [sic] ...

      Finally, a Zionist who believes that the 20% of "Jewish State" citizens who are not Jews actually are - or should be - Jews.

  • Israeli outpost is evacuated without a shot, even as settlers throw stones
    • ...

      “Eight officers have been injured, at least two of whom were taken to a hospital. Police said they were violently attacked by the protesters, who hurled rocks, bottles, paint balls and other objects at the security forces. ... The police statement said two officers were treated for head injuries, and another was lightly injured in the leg. According to police, a number of the protesters on the roof were also seen carrying cement blocks and glass bottles.”

      Quite an event, right? But not a shot fired. All reported injuries are solely on the side of the police. ...

      "Innocent civilians" don't assault and injure police. jon s will be mighty disappointed that his "Jewish State" failed to massacre what clearly was a large group of "armed terrorists and criminals".

  • 'The Israeli military said,' the New York Times reports
    • || Donald Johnson: AP has swiftly gone from being above the petty human rights concerns of lesser mortals to making silly attacks on Finkelstein. Not sure what comes next. Maybe we should place bets. ||

      My money is still on him slinging accusations of anti-Semitism and "Jew hatred" before too long.

    • New York Times reporter David M. Halbfinger didn’t know whether the demonstrations in Gaza were “peaceful protests or violent riots.” So he embedded himself with Israeli snipers poised on the perimeter of Gaza concentration camp to find out ...

      One might suppose if he wanted an answer to that question, the obvious place to go would be among the demonstrators. ...

      Perhaps he did want an answer but didn't want to get a "most moral", "Jewish State" bullet put into him just for standing on the "Jew hatred" side of the prison fence.

  • The Knesset officially declares that Israeli democracy is for Jews only
    • || Ossinev: ... In due course, and once there is a single equal rights for all the indigenous inhabitants state between the Jordan and the Mediterranean , the so called “Jewish State” will be flushed into the sewer of history ... ||

      I agree that one day - maybe a Thousand Years! from now, maybe sooner - the construct known as "Jewish State" will cease to exist.

    • Israel: Jewish supremacism in/and a religion-supremacist "Jewish State".

  • 'Every bullet has a precise address' – another Israeli journalist justifies the massacre
    • || Stephen Shenfield: Jonathan Ofir has distorted what Margolit says about the hypothesized ‘temporary Palestinian outpost’. He says that such an outpost would consist of ‘terrorists and children and handicapped’ but Ofir omits ‘terrorists’. ... ||

      Huh? Mr. Ofir writes:

      ... Margalit elucidates:

      “ ... the Palestinians hope to breach the fence, bypass the sniper positions, and to insert in to Israeli territory terrorists and children and handicapped. Breach of the fence and the setting up of a temporary Palestinian outpost upon Israeli soil within Green Line (pre-1967) territory would have caused an increased shooting in order to expel them and increased the number of killed. ... ”

      So this is the scare scenario, which Margalit assumes: “terrorists and children and handicapped” would set up a temporary outpost. And what would happen then? We would have to massacre them ...

      The outposts would consist of Hamas operatives (the "terrorists") human-shielded by "children and handicapped".

    • ... Margalit notably accentuates that every shot is fired precisely, “by order of a senior commander, and every bullet has a precise address.” ...

      Whether it's being sent "most morally" into the skull of a wounded and incapacitated not-Israeli in militarily-occupied not-Israel or the body of a female medic in besieged not-Israel, every "Jewish State" bullet has a precise address.

  • Don't expect Elizabeth Warren or Kamala Harris to be critical of Israel
    • || American Perspective: Eljay:

      Looks like this is the new script from ZioHQ.

      || ... The question about whether Gaza is “pleasant” is ... ||

      ...a question I didn't ask.

    • || Nathan: ... Do you feel that the demonstrations near the fence are a good idea? ... ||

      || bcg: @Nathan: they aren’t ‘demonstrations’, they’re attempted prison escapes. That what humans do when they’re imprisoned, they try to break out. ||

      || Nathan: bcg – That “prison” has one of the most wonderful beaches in this world. It also has some nice cities with farm land between them. That “prison” also has archeological sites, and it has a government, an army, a judicial system, a school system up to the college level and a foreign policy – and it’s quite capable of waging war for an extended period. This “prison” also has diplomatic relations with other states (Qatar, Turkey).Actually, one might come to the surprising conclusion that this “big prison” is actually a little state. And it is. ||

      It seems an odd tack for a Zionist to praise Gaza as a pleasant and powerful "little state".

    • || RoHa: Yonah, exactly what has Israel done for the US in order to deserve being called an ally? ||

      Cherry tomatoes.

  • Knesset foils efforts to end Israeli apartheid
    • || Mooser: ... “…some of them very verbose…”

      Ah, there it is, “JeffB”, that was the name I’ve been trying to think of. ||

      Don't forget Mikhael. He is easily JeffB's equal in verbosity, IMO.

      Hell, even y.f.'s not too shabby when he's on a misery bender.  ;-)

    • || Donald Johnson: ... One thing about some trolls is the choice of name. It is usually self aggrandizing in some way. ... ||

      What's really funny is attempting to bolster the 'cred' of the username you so-cleverly chose by dropping the name of a Nobel Prize winner who - ooops! - was also a Nazi Party member and known anti-Semite.


    • || Donald Johnson: ... I don’t think people should waste any more time with him unless you find him unintentionally funny. ||

      He's no Jack Green and the whole "feigned earnestness" thing has been done before but I find him amusing. I suspect that it won't be too long before his approach devolves to making accusations of anti-Semitism and "Jew hatred".

    • || American Perspective: Eljay:

      But *you* do not see Israel as a utopia. ... ||

      Because it isn't. But that doesn't prevent Israel's supporters from occasionally promoting it as one.

      || ... So you have nothing to worry about. ... ||

      I'm not worried.

      || ... And to be honest, your belief that Zionists believe that the State of Israel and its people are perfect seems . . . improbable. ... ||

      I never said I believe that Zionists believe that Israel and its Jewish and non-Jewish Israeli citizens are perfect, so you're not being honest at all.

      || ... I think all of us should look at things realistically. ... ||

      I agree that all of us - including Zionists - should look at things realistically:
      - Israel is a deliberately and unapologetically oppressive, colonialist, (war) criminal and religion-supremacist "Jewish State".
      - It refuses to be the secular and democratic state of and for all of its Israeli citizens, immigrants, expats and refugees, equally.
      - It refuses to end its decades-long and on-going occupation and colonization of territory outside of its / Partition borders;
      - It refuses to honour its obligations under international law (incl. RoR); and
      - It refuses to accept responsibility and accountability for its past and on-going (war) crimes.

      But that's not the "realistically" you Zionists want either to look at or to have others look at.

    • || Annie Robbins: you’re just straw manning your way thru this aren’t you? ... ||

      He's the new recruit, figuring out what role to play. I'm sure he'll find his groove in no time.

    • || American Perspective: ... So measured objectively, Israel is in the “Flawed Democracy” level with France and the United States. ... ||

      And yet Zionists insist on defending the "Jewish State" by comparing it to - and pointing out that it's not as bad as - Saudi Arabia, Mali, African "hellholes", China and 19th-century America. Go figure.

      || ... So when people say “Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East”, they don’t mean utopia. ... ||

      Even though they're claiming that it's a "moral beacon" and "light unto the nations" state which, quite frankly, sounds pretty utopian.

    • || American Perspective: Israel right now is a liberal democracy. ... But Israel has never been shy about its nation-state identity. ... ||

      That's nice. But the fact remains that "Israel (or its supporters or illusionists)" have "claimed that Israel is a 'western-style liberal democracy'".

    • || American Perspective: ... when has Israel (or its supporters or illusionists) ever claimed that Israel is a “western-style liberal democracy”? ... ||

      I know you're kidding, but here are three quick examples.

      Fact Sheets: Israel’s Liberal Democracy

      ... Its diverse culture, open society and guaranteed civil and political liberties for all citizens, regardless of race, religion, gender or creed, follows closely to Western democratic tradition. It's liberal democracy, in fact, is the main reason that Israel has been able to have remarkable economic development ...

      ... Israel is a liberal democracy that shares our values. ...

    • Justice, accountability and equality: Three things Zionist hypocrites absolutely despise when they threaten Jewish supremacism in/and a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" in as much as possible of Palestine.

  • 'Why Ahed slapped the soldier' --an interview with Bassem Tamimi
    • || Elizabeth Block: Why do Jewish Israelis think Palestinians are less human than they are? ... ||

      Zionist Israelis are supremacists, so it's no surprise that they consider Palestinians to be "lesser" human beings.

    • || inbound39: American Perspective……..are you aware that prior to Ottaman Rule, where Israel sits now was once part of Syria. ... ||

      Seeing as how s/he thinks Israelis have to "travel overseas" to get to the West Bank and Gaza, I'm going to guess "no".

    • || Rob Roy: eljay: One must disprove Israeli propaganda every time it rears its head and fight back for the Palestinians. ... I could write all day. Israel is NOT a democracy. ||

      I agree. It's a religion-supremacist "Jewish State"...and a colonialist and (war) criminal one at that.

    • || Citizen: Israel sure is a “light to the world.” ||

      It's also a "moral beacon" and a "Western-style democracy"...and less bad than Saudi Arabia, Mali, African "hellholes", etc.

  • Alumna response to the Beacon School's moment of silence for Gaza
    • ... Birthright is an organization that serves as a public relations tool for the state of Israel ...

      The purpose of Birthright seems to be to indoctrinate non-Israeli Jews - citizens of homelands other than Israel - with the belief that they are Ancient Israelites entitled to live as supremacists in a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" in as much as possible of Palestine.

  • Israeli drones drop Ramadan blessings leaflet on Gaza-- before four more are killed
    • || jon s: Annie, eljay,
      Unarmed civilians protesting non-violently should not be targetted. ... ||

      Unless they are deemed by someone (the Israeli government, an IDF commander, a sniper outside of Gaza prison, etc.) to be "armed terrorists or criminals" and then its massacres away!

    • || Mooser: “The Hamas leadership once again encouraged their people to attack the fence , hoping for as many casualties as possible.” “Jon s”

      And “Jon s” condones the massacre of Palestinians which come near the fence. ||

      And he does so quite easily: All the Israeli government has to do is define as "armed terrorists or criminals" any Palestinians who approach the fence and jon s' "moral compass" says it's OK to massacre them.

    • || Jackdaw: What’s sick and disgusting is Kay’s comparison between the Holocaust and the I/P conflict. ||

      Which in no way transforms the past and on-going evils of Zionism into virtue.

      But I'm glad we can all agree that Zionists are sadistic and have a cruel streak in them.

    • || @akr: @ej

      Glad you had a laugh. ... ||

      Thanks, Baker-man. Keep up your good, comedic work!

      || ... When the majority of the world comes around to laughing with you and not at you give me a ring. ... ||

      When you finally rid yourself of your Jewish supremacism (Zionism), I'll shake your hand and buy you a drink.

    • || @aak: @elj

      So, whose stolen land are you living on? ... ||

      It was not my choice to be born in Canada, but as far as I know the land I've been living on since I was born here ~50 years ago is not stolen.

      || ... Are you advocating for your government to return conquered, colonized and confiscated land? ... ||

      I want the Canadian government to honour - or to re-negotiate in good faith - the treaties signed with indigenous groups.

      || ... You sound a little like Rachel Dolan, the Seattle based NAACP director who made a conscious decision that though she was born a white Midwest girl she would now strictly identify as an African American ... ||

      Me: A white male who has chosen to shed his Italian, Croatian and Catholic identities.
      She: A white female who has decided that she is a black woman.

      Yeah, the similarities are unmistakeable.

      || ... because, you know, race is just a construct. ... ||

      If you say so. But it doesn't change the fact that Jewish is a religion-based identity.

    • || @Daa: I thought this was a fairly well reasoned piece that even Zionist haters might appreciate. See for yourselves

      ... These ugly charges impoverish the very Zionist argument they seek to support, because they narrow the range of healthy debate that has always characterized the Zionist enterprise. ... ||

      I like the humour so far. Discussions about how to realize and maintain Jewish supremacism in/and a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" in as much as possible of Palestine are as "healthy" and have as broad a range as discussions about how best to go about kidnapping, confining and raping women.

      || ... But the Zionism of Israelis and committed American Jews is no such snowflake; it is a robust and vibrant proposition, fully able to absorb, respond, and adapt to reasoned critique. ... ||

      This is truly funny stuff! "Captain Israel"-strong Zionism "adapts to reasoned critique" by:
      - running away and ignoring it;
      - loudly defaming it (with accusations of anti-Semitism and "Jew hatred");
      - desperately deflecting attention from it (whataboutism); and/or
      - doubling down on its evil.

      Thanks for Da Laughs, Da Baker.  :-)

    • || RoHa: ... As for his “ethnic/cultural” identity, I’m pretty sure he hasn’t got one. He’s Canadian. ||

      I am a blank slate.

      I used to have Italian, Croatian and Roman Catholic identities but I shed those because - just like the religion-based identity of Jewish - they were a choice.

    • || @aBar: @elj

      Well, I try to be polite to someone someone so devoted to their cause ||

      I appreciate your respect for my devotion to the universal and consistent application of justice, accountability and equality.

      If you weren't so devoted to the cause of Jewish supremacism (Zionism), I might offer you my respect in return...but you are, so I won't.

    • || @Daak: @rha

      Taking the comments about a negotiated peace from a numbskull thick headed elj seriously is like using a mango to open a coconut. An absolutist who can only understand his own mediocre and true believing mindset. ... ||

    • || Naftush: ... In Israel, a person or group that’s accused of tribalism is charged with subordinating the national cause to narrower interests. ... ||

      It's a fucked-up state in which a person can be charged with subordinating the "national cause" of religion-based supremacism to the "narrower interests" of justice, equality and human rights.

    • || Yonah Fredman: ... I am willing to accept the necessity of the zionist Jewish response, but such acceptance cannot override the objection to violence, which must always raise concerns, even if we decide to choose violence, we must allow bleeding hearts to have their say, because violence is an evil, maybe necessary some times, but still an evil. ||

      jon s says massacre is acceptable if limited to people subjectively deemed to be not-innocent.
      y.f. says evil - even if objectionable - is acceptable when subjectively deemed to be necessary.

      What is it with Zionists and their impulse to undermine human rights and international laws and the protections they are meant to afford all people including Jews.

      Why do Zionists insist on hating Jews so much?!

    • || Naftush: If the mouse then leaps into the ocean and breathes for decades through a blowhole off the California coast, then it is a whale and has been one all along. ... ||

      So...what you're saying is that "the Jews" are:
      - a delusional mouse who now believes he is a whale and somehow lives in the ocean; or
      - a delusional whale who used to believe he was a mouse and somehow lived on land.


      || ... That most American Jews repudiate most of these attributes and swap them for American ones is sort of like a whale insisting that it’s a mouse. ... ||

      So...honest-to-goodness Americans who choose to embrace the religion-based identity of Jewish aren't really Americans - they're Ancient Israelites who are lying to themselves.

      That's an interesting assertion. Anti-Semitic, too, for how it presumes that all Jews are one and the same.

    • || Naftush: Applying the term “tribalism” to Zionism is a bi-level failure and a shallow innuendo — insinuating that Israel is less than a nation. In Israel, a person or group that’s accused of tribalism is charged with subordinating the national cause to narrower interests. Where the idea of Jewishness as tribalism does strike a positive chord in the U.S., as in congratulating a convert by saying “Welcome to the tribe!” ||

      Correct: Jewish is a religion-based identity and Israel as a "Jewish State" is a religion-supremacist construct.

    • || Nathan: ... It’s an old trick of the anti-Zionists to pretend that the word “Judaism” means “Jews”. ... ||

      I've never heard of this "old trick" that "Judaism" means "Jews".

      But regardless of Zionism's smoke-and-mirrors tricks to the contrary, it is a fact that Jewish is a religion-based identity that can only be acquired by:
      - undergoing a religious conversion to Judaism; or
      - being descended from someone who underwent a religious conversion to Judaism.

    • Mr. Halevi asserts that Judaism cannot exist without Zionism when, in truth, Zionism cannot exist without Judaism.

      And - in typical Zionist fashion - he anti-Semitically conflates Zionism and Israel with all Jews and all Jews with Zionism and Israel.

  • 'New York Times' teams up with Israel to smear slain medic Razzan al-Najjar as 'complex,' not innocent
    • || jon s: eljay,
      I got tired of going around in circles the last time we had this exchange ... ||

      You got tired of dodging the issue and taking responsibility for the fact that you selectively approve of massacre.

      || ... so here we go again: ||

      Yup, here you go again. But let me try again:

      1. Please spell out as precisely as possible:
      - who is eligible to be massacred and who is not; and
      - who (what person(s), group(s), organization(s) and/or government(s)) determines eligibility for massacre.

      2. If Israel were to withdraw from Occupied Palestine and the inhabitants of various formerly-Israeli, Jewish-only colonies were to remain in place and - according to their new (Palestinian) government - become "armed terrorists or criminals", according to your "moral compass" the Palestinians would have every right to massacre them. I would disagree. Why do you hate Jews so much that you would approve of their massacre?

      || ... What I wrote was that there’s a difference between innocent civilians and armed terrorists or criminals. It’s the kind of distiction that should be clear to any reasonable, decent, moral, person.
      If you don’t see it then you’re the one with the broken moral compass. ||

      Not only do I see the distinction but unlike you I don't condone any massacre of any person(s) ever.

    • || jon s: Eljay seems to be implying that I would condone a massacre of the inhabitants of Gaza.
      Nothing could be further from the truth. ||

      jon s says:

      I wrote that I don’t make any distinctions based on ethnicity, nationality, religion and so forth but that I do make a distinction between innocent civilians and armed terrorists and criminals.

      If all inhabitants of Gaza are deemed to be not-innocent civilians (which means they fall into the "armed terrorists and criminals" camp), according to your "moral compass" it is acceptable to massacre them.

      I don't condone massacres, so maybe I had trouble reading your "moral compass". Please feel free to spell out more precisely:
      - who is eligible to be massacred and who is not; and
      - what person(s), group(s), organization(s) and/or government(s) is (are) responsible for making the official determination?

      And as we all know - because Zionist jon s has told us so - it is entirely acceptable to massacre terrorists.

  • 'I'm targeted by the Israeli army,' Razan al-Najjar said before she was killed

      I have no interest in "Romantic motifs".

      || ... about Palestine as some virgin land, untouched by civilization until the 1890s Zionist movement. ... ||

      Correct and thank you: Palestine wasn't a "virgin land" - it was a land inhabited by (geographic) Palestinians. Foreign nationals had no right to occupy it, colonize it and establish in it a religion-supremacist "Jewish State".

      Silly rapist's victims and their assumptions that some kind of "arc of history" bends toward their petty feminine passions. Instead of fighting to regain their lives and liberty and to see the rapist brought to justice, his victims should lie back and enjoy the ride and maybe even cook his meals and do his laundry.

      Well, it's clear that Bibi's bullshitting because jon s' Zionist rule of law states that it is acceptable to massacre any persons deemed to be not-innocent - or, as he vaguely defined them, "armed terrorists and criminals".

    • Throwing away a gas grenade and acting as a human shield of safety to protect the injured: That's all a Zionist needs to know in order to determine that a Palestinian is not-innocent and, therefore, eligible for massacre.

      3) they have their own agenda which is at least as nuts than the Jewish version. ... ||

      The sad thing about all this - aside from the past and on-going (war) crimes committed against Palestinians - is that when it all falls apart (and it eventually will) Christian Zionists will simply wash their hands of it while Jewish Zionists will do their best to ensure that non-Zionist Jews bear the brunt of the backlash.

      I am unable to comprehend why Zionists - especially Jewish Zionists - hate Jews so much.

So was flying burning kites in Israeli farmlands in the past few weeks. So was lobbing rockets into Israeli population centers. Among many other human rights atrocities committed by Palestinians. ||

      But no Zionist will agree to any resolution to the I-P conflict that involves justice, accountability and equality because every Zionist wants Israel:
      - to remain a religion-supremacist "Jewish State";
      - to keep as much as possible of what it has stolen;
      - to be absolved of its obligations under international law (incl. RoR); and

      Zionist "concern for the well-being of the Palestinian people" sounds as creepy as concern shown by the rapist's friends for the "well-being of the women chained in his basement": Lie back and enjoy the ride. Life is very dear.

    • ... This site cited Asaf Ronel of Haaretz, who tweeted:

      “It’s unlikely that a sniper deliberately killed Razan al-Najjar. Her death is an expected result of repeated use of live fire by Israeli soldiers to prevent medical care in #Gaza (in addition to illegal & immoral use of snipers against unarmed protesters)”.

      You gotta love a "moral beacon" state whose "most moral army" shoots only to wound and/or cripple - but not to kill - medics.

      Zionists are fond of re-defining perfectly good English words. In this case, they appear to have re-defined "moral" to mean "not too evil".

      Thanks for the link. Finkelstein makes excellent points.

      Gaza is one part of Partition-borders Palestine, yes.

      I know this won't last long, but I agree with you. Zionism has everything to do with Jewish supremacism in/and a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" in as much as possible of Palestine.

      Not sure what your definition of whining is ... ||

      Sure you know, because it's what you do.

      || ... but there were a few questions, none of which you answered. ... ||

      Unlike the questions you asked me just the other day - questions which I answered - these questions were not addressed to me. So suck it up, buttercup.

      || ... You pretty much just stick to your conviction that a jew is a person who chose to identify as jewish. period. ... ||

      Given that Jewish is both a religion-based identity and a choice, there is no other conviction to which I can stick.

      || ... is the Islamic Republic of Iran just a nation that simply chose to identify as Muslim? ||

      As far as I can tell, the Islamic Republic of Iran is a nation that - just like Israel - has chosen not to be the secular and democratic state of and for all of its citizens, immigrants, expats and refugees, equally.

      Oh how cute. Y’all are so coy. ... ||

      Thanks, Baker-man, for that excellent demonstration of what a Zionist driven into hysterical whining, self-righteous justification, a whole bunch of excuses and denial sounds like.

    • || Mooser: ... Yes, but there is something very dishonest about using a phrase like “Christian (or whatever)dominant” without providing examples of nations which are “Christian etc. dominant” in the same ways that Israel is “Jewish dominant”. ||

      It's very dishonest and very...what's the word? Oh, yeah, that's it: Zionist.

      Wow. Very creative. It reminds me of a child or pee wee herman: “whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks to you” . ... ||

      It's cute, Francis, how you took a moment out of your busy, wife-beating schedule just to say you're not a wife-beater.

      || ... There are Muslim dominant nations, Christian dominant nations, buddist, Hindu, Catholic and there is one very small Jewish dominant nation and Muslims, Arabs and Zionist haters can’t stand it and won’t rest until “jerusalem and all Palestine from river to sea is Muslim again” . say what you will but denying its about Jews is the most dishonest argument on earth. ... ||

      There's nothing dishonest about condemning supremacism in all its forms. What is dishonest is Zionist hypocrites like you condemning supremacism elsewhere in the world but advocating it, supporting it, justifying it and defending it in Israel because Jews are the ones doing it to others.
