  • Jewish settlers threaten life of Palestinian who shot video of execution
    • The map of executions is not random

      No, it certainly is not. It's a perfect match with the map of where murderous palestinians killed or tried to kill Jews.

      Typical illogical propaganda about evil Jewish conspiracies.

  • Finding 1 'Arab' in Israeli basketball, NY Times espouses Zionist racial theory
    • How many of those "Jewish Arabs "were involved in the mass killings in Belgium, Turkey or Pakistan over the past few days? Probably fewer than the Number of Arabs playing professional basketball in Israel.

  • Israeli soldier filmed executing wounded Palestinian man
    • You'll have to excuse my ignorance... Unlike you I don't have a monthly subscription to "Modern Terrorism" or hang out with ISM branded terrorist sympathizers who know what method of killing Jews is in vogue this season.

      Given the fact that this POS already tried to kill two Israelis with his knife, you really think they should have just let him move around and run the risk of killing even more people because hey, "suicide vests are out of fashion this year"? Perhaps you should tell your friends to not wear baggy clothing next time they try to murder us... that way they don't need to worry about a head shot if they manage to survive in their quest for Jewish blood.

    • Not the least bit surprising that this incident is declared an "execution" without even mentioning the soldier's justification: that the terrorist's coat appeared to be covering an explosive vest and poor Ramzi was still twitching around. When dealing with people with a penchant for blowing themselves up around as many Jews as possible, it would be negligent not to take that threat into account.

      There will be an inquiry (unlike the palestinians) and the solider will be exonerated. Meanwhile we needn't worry about this terrorist being released next time a Jew is kidnapped.

  • Israeli medics are leaving wounded Palestinians to bleed to death
    • If palestinians are worried about not getting medical treatment for their gun shot wounds, they should stop stabbing Jews and getting themselves shot.

  • Garland nomination is moment of humble reflection for US Jews
    • if America was a tiny nation surrounded by blood thirsty maniacs whose goal in life is to kill as many Jews as possible, your analogy would be compelling. But in reality, it just gives us a glimpse into the distorted reality In which you live. I'm sorry you were dropped on your head as a child.

    • our presence in the most exclusive corridors of the power structure should tell Jews that our place in the west is safe; we don’t need so-called Jewish sovereignty in another country halfway around the world that is more than half non-Jewish anyway, though most of them don’t have any rights, can’t even vote, to be safe.
      "Our presence" "our?" Really? it is astonishing that someone can make every effort to distance themselves from their heritage and thier people... except of course when they need to count themselves among the group they are criticizing in a desperate attempt to gain credibility in the eyes of their readership.

      "Jews are doing well in America therefore Israel isn't needed. " If that is the type of logic they taught at Harvard, I would demand my money back if I were you! one has nothing to do with the other. Jews were already doing quite well in America in the 30s and 40s… What bit of difference did that make with how they were treated overseas?

  • Sanders will not attend AIPAC, offers to share remarks
    • 5000 signatures? A cordial letter from Senator Sanders without a hint of criticism towards AIPAC?

      Yeah, it really sounds like the tide is turning. Keep up the good work MW! There are three times that many people any given Donald Trump rally.

  • Palestinians grapple with knife attacks as violence enters fifth month
    • Palestinians grapple with knife attacks as violence enters fifth month
      It takes a special level of savagery to "grapple" with the question of whether it's OK to stab innocent civilian women. It takes an even greater measure of stupidity to portray the decision as a very difficult one that burdens the decider.

  • Sayed Kashua doesn't want to write in Hebrew for 'Haaretz' anymore
    • What a harrowing tale of his persecution working as an Arab at a large news outlet in the Jewish state. If only the Zio-supremasists treated him as well as all the Jewish writers employed by large news outlets in Arab countries. (For the benefit of the largely feebleminded readership: that isn't meant literally - Arabs don't permit Jews to work at newspapers.)

  • NYC Council bill to track campus anti-Semitism is attack on Palestine activism, advocates say
    • NYC Council bill to track campus anti-Semitism is attack on Palestine activism, advocates say
      If there was any truth to the myth that "palestinian activism" was something other than a pretext for anti Semitism, I suppose they wouldn't have anything to worry about.

  • 'Seven Jewish Children' staged at Univ. of York despite smear that students were promoting 'anti-Semitic culture'
    • Oh silly Annie, there you go again:

      "shutting down of free speech" Wow... if this offended you, you should see how deceptively the assistant editor at MW uses the pretext of "moderation"

      "[T]hey have the nerve to call it an anti semitic play..." That's interesting given that you and your have no qualms about calling folks racists, nazis and islamophobes who disagree with you about Israel.

      "[t]hat’s totally irresponsible journalism from ibtimes." I think even Brian Williams speaks from a higher place when criticizing others lack of journalistic responsibility. Seriously? Look, you could take a paid job for Hamas tomorrow working as their director of online propaganda and you would not have to change a single thing you do.

  • 'When I have the opportunity to do it, I will': Likud lawmaker vows to demolish Al-Aqsa mosque
  • Trump's refusal to name a 'good guy and a bad guy' in conflict is 'anti-Israel,' says Rubio
    • Well, it is stupid but there is nothing "wrong "with it.

      What is wrong is anti-Semitism and anti-Jewish bigotry thinly veiled as anti-Israeli criticism purportedly predicated on irrational belief system that holds Jews to a much higher standard than anyone else in the world and engages in the fallacy of moral equivalency when it comes to baby killers and other terrorists who kill Jews.

      But, you obviously knew that already…

    • Yawn... You repeat yourself more than Rubio does. At least his talking points are truthful.

    • The position you’ve taken is an anti-Israel position.. Because you cannot be an honest broker in a dispute between two sides in which one of the sides is constantly acting in bad faith.”

      Well said, Senator Rubio. Truer words haven't been spoken on the debate stage in a long time.

  • US writer Kristian Davis Bailey is racially profiled, arrested, strip-searched, detained, silenced, traumatized on trip to Palestine
    • If only the facts were on your side you wouldn't have to engage in such transparently dishonest rhetoric…

      Obviously you all have the right to censor and edit reader feedback as you see fit to comport with your narrative… but you do sound a little bit silly when you defend your right to do that but then question my contention that my responses are never published.

      And I will repeat number two again, because it continues to go on unaddressed… I wasn't the one claiming that Israeli prison officials were threatening people with rape. In the absence of any of you lemmings coming forward with evidence to support this ridiculous claim, please tell me how exactly it is my "disappearance" after challenging this obviously false accusation means a thing.

      If someone had actually uncovered some evidence to corroborate that pathetically untrue claim, it would be a different story. But, as we all know, no such evidence has been presented or even exists. It is your disappearance that is telling.

      Talking points and code words like "zio-supremacist" only get you so far... but because you are motivated by bigotry and anti-Semitism rather than logic, we needn't peel back too many layers of the onion to see the truth.

    • Black lives matter and Palestinian rights… What a perfect marriage. Two fraudulent movements predicated on myths, lies and distortions.

    • 1. It's called censorship in the name of "moderation"
      2. Um, when exactly was that evidence I demanded produced Such that it was incumbent upon me to "reappear" and respond - as if I would be permitted to do so.

    • Black lives matter and Palestinian solidarity activism - The true hallmarks of honesty, trustworthiness and integrity.

      For sure we should take everything he says at face value without a shred of corroborated evidence

  • Israel's ethnic cleansing of its parliament
    • He claims the MPs “sided with terror” this month when they visited Palestinian families in occupied East Jerusalem who have been waiting many months for Israel to return relatives’ bodies.

      The 11 dead are among those alleged to have carried out what are termed “lone-wolf” attacks, part of a recent wave of Palestinian unrest
      They are the bodies of murderers, not participants in "palestinian unrest". These MP's, particularly the traitorous Zoabi should be thrown in jail for sedition and their place in the kenesset should be the least of their worries.

      How about we exchange these carcasses for the remains of Ron Arad? If the Arabs get living child-killers like Kuntar for Jewish corpses, certainly Israel should at least be able to get the remains of one Jew in a trade. (Assuming we suspend reality and pretend that Jews aren't held to a separate set of rules based on bigotry.)

  • Georgia is the latest state to consider anti-BDS legislation (Updated)
  • J Street is in denial of one-state 'consensus'
    • I’d argue that the worst thing that could have happened to Israel’s non-Jewish minority would have been the establishment of that second non-Jewish state. Thank God (Allah) it didn’t happen.
      Stephen Low has as much business calling himself a "member of the Jewish community" as his co-author has calling himself a journalist.

      "Member of the Jewish community" -- sometimes the self loathing runs so deep they can't even muster the strength to call themselves a Jew.

  • 'NYT' article on roots of recent violence in Israel/Palestine fails to use the word 'occupation'
    • I also recently read a NYT article about the uber driver who went on a shooting spree in Michigan. That too was very one sided. They didn't give any coverage from the shooter's perspective.

      This one-sided reporting is an affront to journalism!

  • Israeli interrogators threatened to rape al-Qiq and his family-- so he launched hunger strike, lawyer says
  • Trump says he must be 'neutral' on Israel/Palestine, then slags Palestinians as anti-Semites
    • Trump is a wealthy billionaire who doesn't depend on "the lobby". I guess we'll need to find some other way to explain away his unfavorable opinion about so called palestinians (other than that it is supported by facts). I know... his daughter is married to a Jew! That must be it!

  • Video: Scenes from a bloody Sunday in Palestine
    • No great surprise that the footage begins only a few seconds before it happens... We wouldn't want the viewer to see what precipitated the incident.

      When children, women and the disabled are used to blow up Jews, Jews are rightfully fearful of children, women and the disabled. This man can thank Hamas and Abbas for his treatment.

  • Three Joint List MKs suspended from Knesset over visit to Palestinian attacker's homes
    • *assuming of course we are talking about the bodies of dead palestinian terrorists that killed civilian Jews in cold blood. For the treatment of Jewish remains held by Arabs, there is another set of rules... for example:

      Ehud Goldwasser
      Eldad Regev
      Beni Avraham
      Adi Avitan
      Omar Soua

      I'm sure you're equally outraged that Ron Arad's body has still never been returned.

  • Anti-Zionist protest at LGBTQ conference was smeared as anti-Semitic
  • Tel Aviv housecleaning service advertises higher rates for European help than Africans
    • Or to put it another way... you give Arabs a pass because, after all, they are Arabs and we couldn't possibly expect them to conform their behavior to the rest of the civilized world? Is that not what you're saying? Why not just acknowledge your bias against Jews so you don't have to advance such poorly thought out alternative explanations for your hypocritical views.

    • I realize my opinions aren't often in-line with much of the readership here but I actually agree that this is despicable. It is just too bad that the policies of one individual private company are singled out when you have entire Arab countries with far more discriminatory policies against Jews and Israelis that, of course, get a free pass. Abu Mazen himself has stated that not a single Jew will be permitted to live in his fantasy world called Palestine. That is OK though, right? Like his predecessor before him, he is of course far more interested in squirreling away as much stolen money as he can at the expense of his people… Not fighting for their interest. So, this is really just an academic discussion, isn't it?

  • Double standard seen as Israel sentences minors involved in Abu Khdeir murder to prison but no punitive measures
    • 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?

      Look, if you really want to see a double standard, how about the (non)coverage of the 3 arab MK's that met with the families of the terrorists that killed innocent Israeli's yesterday. If Bibi met with the parents of these Jewish murders it would be front page news and unmitigated outrage. Not so much here... to busy complaining that the life sentence handed down was not long enough.,7340,L-4762275,00.html

  • Define 'establishment candidate': Rubio and Clinton both love Netanyahu
    • Wow, so now there were 320 Million palestinians in present-day Israel before the "nakba"?

    • There actually is a lot of racism in the world. It's too bad that many who experienced have to deal with the boy who cried Wolf syndrome due to pathetic claims like this.

      Stabbing a 65-year-old woman walking down the street for no other reason than the fact she is Jewish is savagery. It is what they do or try to do every single day. So sorry if it offends your delicate sensibilities but that, by definition, makes them savages.,7340,L-4762614,00.html

    • Between Trump, Cruz, Clinton and Carson, nearly all the front runners are pro-Israel. (Sanders' embrace of Israel may not be as tight as the others but he's a huge improvement over the current occupant of the White House)... So tell me again how the tides of American opinion are supposedly turning? Regardless of who wins in November, Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israel will win. I know it's easier to perpetuate your fantasy world by telling yourself that one old Jew in Las Vegas is to blame for all this... but the reality is that civilized people tend to support other civilized people on their own - particularly when they are surrounded by [...].

  • Israeli designer eroticizes the Palestinian keffiyeh
    • Obviously it's you that is obsessed with the religion of the people murdered by Egyptians, Jordanians and others masquerading as members of a fictitious people. If I'm wrong, please direct me to your comments concerning the killing of rival Arab political factions by Hamas, Hezbolah or other Arab terrorist organization. Oh, that's right, we like to brush that stuff under the rug because, after all, there would not be any violence but for the oppressive occupation of the evil Jews… I mean Zionists

    • Many are sure to be offended by these clothes.

      Let us tip toe gingerly over the delicate Palestinian's egg shell sensibilities. They can't even stab Jews any more without being shot dead... they don't need this extra measure of degradation from the zio-supremacists!

  • Biggest loser in Iowa was foreign policy
    • Sanders's support for Israel demonstrates what nonsense the anti-Semitic taking point about Jewish control of the government is. Perhaps many in the U.S. support Israel, oh... I don't know... maybe because its the right, moral and just thing to do? Did it ever occur to you that the vast majority of the population doesn't suffer from the same self-loathing and inability to think rationally?

  • 'An Arab is an Arab'
    • Self-interest is a far more noble influence on one's political judgments than anti-Semitism.

      Perhaps you could at least at least pretend to address the substance of the quote I cited like the original responder? In the meantime, please spare me the "We" card Judenrat.

    • "The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people,since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism.

      "For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa. While as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan."

      (PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, 1997)

  • Palestinian poet and artist Ashraf Fayadh sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia (Updated)
    • " every time something critical of Israel " - as if that is some rare event here? By that did you mean, every single piece that is ever published on the site?

      I had to read the headline three times because I was in such disbelief that someone other than the evil Zionists could be the villains of a story here. But before you give yourselves a Pulitzer Prize, where is the story of the jewish mother of six children that was brutally murdered inside her house? No, it is only when a Palestinian is killed... Or in this case potentially going to be killed… that the story is deamed newsworthy. Jewish victims of violence remain but important here.

      Not to mention , we have Israel still being blamed for this situation by some above.

      Keep giving yourself a pat on the back though…

  • My one word interrogation at Ben Gurion airport
    • Here's a story you'll never see on MW - Horowitz goes to Yemen or Pakistan or Saudi Arabia, is interrogated for 6 hours and denied entry to the county while thousands of others with "Arab privilege" sail though customs because their name is "mohammed". Nope, you won't see that here. Here's something that might have escaped your attention: dorky looking Jews named Horowitz aren't the ones blowing up cafes and stabbing Jewish children in the streets. Israel's existence is under attack 24/7; it cannot waste its precious resources scrutinizing Woody Allen wannabe's at the airport in the name of political correctness.

  • Hamas releases video of Gilad Shalit in captivity, and at the barbecue
  • 'Israel is ours'-- Dermer's settlement gift puts spotlight on Ahava
    • palestinian sympathizers routinely ignore unhelpful facts and prefer to attack straw man arguments that were never made. Israel doesn't need to justify anything... but if it did, it wasn't done by comparing it to the worst countries in the world. The point (which was clearly made yet ignored) is that it is those countries who fail to recognize Israel. Which gets us back to the point that Kay should really find something else to cite as evidence of Israel's poor standing in the world. The fact that Sudan thinks that Israel commits human rights violations is as comical as Phillip Weiss criticizing the journalistic integrity of a legitimate news outlet.

    • Ah, yes... the international condemnation of Israel for their "human rights violations" manifested by the rebuke of such progressive regimes like Sudan, Syria, Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and North Korea... just to name a few. Perhaps with more BDS and international pressure, Israel will comport with international norms and respect human rights as well as some of their other boycotters like Mali, Niger and Somalia. Such nonsense could only be given credence by an anti-Semite or an imbecile. I'm not sure if Kay hates Jews or was just dropped on her head as a child but I feel sorry for her in any event.

  • Video: O little invasion of Bethlehem
    • the depth of your hypocrisy never ceases to amaze me... Claiming that my comments are nothing more than name calling while completely ignoring the story I cited. Perhaps you're in 'palestine' and worried that your family will be thrown in a dungeon or dragged to death behind motorcycles by your thuggish corrupt rulers if you publicly go off-script. I'll assume that's the case and give you the benefit of the doubt.

    • Or shooting down unarmed mentally ill palestinans in broad daylight?,7340,L-4744433,00.html

      Oh wait, Egypt did that... Doesn't count. We're not anti-Semitic here at MW, it's just a coincidence that Jews are singled out for criticism in every story.

  • Israeli settlers at a wedding party cheer burning of Palestinian baby
    • Yep... a handful of Jewish crazies celebrate the death of innocent civilians and it's covered in the mainstream Jewish news because their celebration is disgusting.

      Mainstream palestinians celebrate the death of innocent civilians and if the handful of them who were outraged said anything to the news, they too would be dead civilians.

      That is the difference.

  • Israel's ambassador taunts the White House (again) with holiday gift of settlement goods
    • Dreamer's characterization of BDS and the intentions of its supporters couldn't be more accurate. Kudos to him for having the chutzpah to stick his thumb in Obama's eye after how poorly he's treated Israel the past 7 years.

  • Israeli forces kill Palestinian youth, 24, six weeks after killing his sister, 17
    • "Red Crescent officials told Ma'an"

      Red Crescent and Ma'an have as much to do with treating medical emergencies and practicing actual journalism as BDS is unrelated to anti-jewish bigotry.

      If there actually was someone from the Red Crescent there, I'm sure he was trying to smuggle weapons in his ambulance or getting ready for his cue to roll in with his emergency lights activated when the cameras start rolling.

  • Trump's religion test for immigrants is standard practice in Israel
  • 'When were they radicalized?' is not the right question
    • And there it is... let's blame the 14 dead and many more wounded by gun fire from pipe-bomb making muslims on.... Israel. In this sewer of anti-antisemitism and bigotry, its still absurd but not surprising.

  • The double standard for white and Muslim shooters
    • Please...

      The ability of the press to access the homes of these terrorist was not a result of selective reporting but the incompetence of the Justice Department and law-enforcement by failing to secure that as part of the crime scene. I'm quite sure that if they were allowed to do so, the media would also have sent Cameraman into the houses of Adam Lanza and other schizophrenics who committed mass shooting for reasons unrelated to Islam.

      Of course there is a double standard here. Anyone with a brain can see it. Despite the overwhelming amount of evidence proving that these two terrorists were motivated but their Islamic faith, The liberal, supposedly Jewish controlled, media has bent over backwards to try to whitewash this. Major news outlets tried to connect it to a nearby Planned Parenthood, they tried to say it was workplace violence, they even tried to suggest that perhaps the female terrorist was suffering from postpartum depression.

      Rather than calling it what it is and standing up like a leader should, your joke of a president is dodging the obvious and trying to use this as a foothold on a call for gun control. Similarly, the attorney general of the United States has vowed to crack down as a result of this… But not on further acts of terror but rather those who have the unmitigated audacity to speak out against like minded radical Muslims.

      If MW actually had any credibility, the audacity to claim that the bias in the coverage of this terrorist attack has is anything other than pro-Muslim would cause that to evaporate.

      The Hamas/CAIR press conference - how hilarious watching the brother in law's handlers jump out in front of him when he was getting off script.

      Yes, there is double standard but the Muslim terrorists have have been the beneficiaries… At least up until this point. MW and the liberal media and the other Muslim apologists are totally over playing her hand on this one and even those who have previously been on the fence are going to open their eyes up to radical Islam.

  • Palestinian man 'killed in cold blood' on day that claims 4 Palestinian lives
    • didn’t you know it was one of the least liked countries in the world?

      How proud you must be to be a part of the misinformation apparatus that has contributed to that! Not surprising given the fact that one in four people in the world are muslim and they have been immigrating to western Europe in record numbers. Besides, I didn't realize that standing up for the just thing means rooting for the winner of the popularity contest.

      being staunchly against israel doesn’t mean one has “violent savagery”

      Yes, I'm sure it was an isolated coincidence that this mass killer of innocent people and manufacturer of pipe bombs and adherent to the religion of peace harbored hatred for Israel and Jews.

    • All 14 victims killed on cold blood in California were also American citizens. Of course that story doesn't coalesce with your narative so it was unworthy of a similar article.

      In another shoking turn of events, the male terrorist was vehemently anti-Israel according to his own father. But I'm sure that inconvenient fact will not deter you from continuing to propagate myth that Israel does not face violent savagery by its detractors.

      Shooting someone dead while they are actively swinging metal scissors at a 70 year old man in a clear attempt to kill him (all captured on video) = summary execution by cowards.

      Yes, the Israeli security should have demonstrated as much bravery as the now dead would-be killer who targeted an elderly man.

  • How do we mourn for the dead when empathy is a battleground

Unfortunately it will take an attack on US soil before the states collectively realizes they need unrestrained military action, not French Facebook flags.

There will not be peace until he and his [...] get out of Israel and go to Palestine (Jordan). With another year of Obama in the White House, we know that we're already on our own.

  • The US spends $35 billion on foreign aid . . . but where does the money really go?

      "Doesn't matter anyways because you're a Zionist occupier that steals land, intentionally kills children and does a bunch of other bad things for which there is no evidence but I'm not a anti-semite"

    • Excellent retort… Were it not for the fact that Mark twain was speaking only about the biblical city of Nablus. I'm sure the four or five Jewish people living there today have done such an effective job fleecing its resources that the current Israeli GDP is greatly boosted by that region.

      If you are going to revise history with quotes from well-known authors, you may want to avoid using writers like Twain who also famously noted such things as:

      "..... A desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds... a silent mournful expanse.... a desolation.... we never saw a human being on the whole route.... hardly a tree or shrub anywhere. Even the olive tree and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil, had almost deserted the country."

    • How is that the GDP for multiple muslim countries sitting atop huge oil reserves have such a smaller GDP than tiny Israel build on the desolate sand dune ruins left by the Ottomans after their centuries-long occupation?

  • Telling tales in Israel and Palestine
    • How dare those Jews protect themselves against a knife wielding would-be killer.

      Right out of the Palestinian terror playbook... send a girl to do a man's job and then sob over her dead corpse when the inevitable happens.

      Out of curiosity, what does the ever-reputable ISM have to explain away the 48 stabbings, 5 car ramming, 5 shootings, 11 dead and 100+ injured Israelis from last month? Were those also committed by teenage Palestinian girls minding their own business on their way to school?

  • Anniversary of Rabin assassination is marked by incitement

  • Despite global disgust, Netanyahu doubles down on claim that Hitler got idea of Final Solution from a Palestinian
    • I suppose the prohibition against name calling only applies to those with a differing point of view?

      In any event, thank you for correcting my grammar and calling me stupid. It was a delightful distraction from the substance of my post - that Arabs have been committed to the destruction of Jews in Israel long before 1967.

      Also, which UN are you referring to? The UN with how many Arab members that passed 20 resolutions against Israel and only 3 against the rest of the world during last session? Seems like an even playing field.

    • Seems like much ado about nothing.

      Based on the immediate attacks against Israel upon the declaration of its independence by Egypt, Jordan, Syria and all the other arab countries from which the palestinians actually come, there is no dispute that the mufti and his followers were committed to the destruction of the Jewish state long before the so-called occupation.

      That is the larger point.

      Of course, splitting hairs and jumping on Bibi for this comment is a great distraction from yet another Israeli woman stabbed in cold blood today, isn't it?

  • Video: Israeli mob attacks Eritrean, mistaking him for Bedouin assailant
    • zahrum's death was a tragic mistake... And completely foreseeable by the true perpetrator of the attack. His blood is on the hands of the terrorist who committed this stabbing attack.

      Interesting how Israelis are criticized for what even the leaders of the asylum-seekers says could be a mistake. But when Palestinians intentionally attack similarly situated civilians simply going about their business, it is either given no attention or justified in the name of "resistance"

      Thanks you to the author of this piece for illustrating the double standard to which Israel is held by its detractors.

  • 'Caught on Camera': Extrajudicial killings of Palestinians
    • An official report from a (supposed) legitimite NGO that documents the killing of two people who are still alive?

      That is more than a "minor factual discrepancy"

      It exposes the entire report for what it is - propaganda fashioned to fan the flames of indictment.

    • Did the 13 year old Jewish boy stab himself?

  • Latest Palestinian teens shot dead are 16, 17, and 18
