I am a retired signwriter and ex serviceman who took time to investigate the truth about Israel after being disgusted by Israeli tactics during Cast Lead. I successfully ran the biggest Palestinian State thread on YahooNZ until they closed the entire message boards there. We had three archived volumes and frequently came under Zionist attack...lol

  • UN bowed to 'fearmongering and threats' from powerful governments to cover up 'painful truth' of Israeli apartheid -- UN official's resignation letter
    • Unfortunately it is what Americans voted for, knowing full well Israel dominates and manipulates the American government and that Israeli money funds ALL successful candidates so its bidding can be done. Until America gets its pride and values back and casts out the Israeli influences in its political system America will never be viewed as great. Israel single handedly, without a shot being fired, has made the humiliation of America complete........something it will look back on in years to come with complete and utter distaste. Surely this is not what American veterans fought and died for. How does this honour their memory and sacrifice?

  • AIPAC underwrote Islamophobia in the Republican Party, and the Democratic Party too
    • You are dead wrong JeffB.....Bush declared War on terror thus placing America on a War footing after the Twin Towers were dropped.

      You either have to act directly against the United States (militarily) or recruit troops to war on the United States. AIPAC does neither. ..........It could be argued quite succesfully that Israel militarily attacked the USS Liberty and as far as recruiting troops to war on the United States one need only look at how Israel has destabilized the American Government by using its employees at AIPAC. To say AIPAC does neither flies in the face of reality. All you are doing is playing semantics like a Zio on Ziocaine. AIPAC engages in subterfuge....an accepted method of warfare.

    • @JeffB..... Your own reply confirmed what I was pointing at and you articulated what constitutes a Foreign Agent admirably. Thank you for that. Eva more or less answered for me adequately.

    • “AIPAC only manipulates government policy”........this statement confirms for me that AIPAC interferes with American Governance, which many of us here have known for sometime. So therefore it is acting as a Foreign Agent of Israel and needs to be removed from American soil along with all those it employs and bribes.

  • Human rights lawyer: Israel's new anti-BDS travel ban violates international law
  • Israel’s welcome now reserved only for Jews who back Netanyahu
    • Precisely Kaisa.....and where will the Special Relationship stand with Americans then.....will they still remain silent and grin cheesily at Netanyahu or will they finally get the intestinal fortitude to jettison Israel?

  • Trump warns annexation of West Bank will cause 'immediate crisis' between US and Israel - Lieberman
    • An even larger immediate crisis is looming. The American Government needs to avert moving its Embassy to Jerusalem.......that move will trigger irreversible repercussions for America and its people. It is high time Americans decided whether they support Israeli war crimes or not. Ignoring the plight of Palestinians at the hands of Israel is making the standing of America plummet like a stone.

  • Israel interferes in our politics all the time, and it's never a scandal
    • Israel's nukes kill jews if one missile from a saturation attack on Israel hits Dimona.....it then becomes uninhabitable not to mention it might suddenly become a glass state.

    • Exactly RoHa....Israel has illegal nukes and no one is sanctioning it or asking it to remove its nuclear weapons and Israel has had planes in the air with nuclear weapons on board.

    • You also need to question Trump demanding Russia leave Crimea because they took it by force but he is fine with Israel taking Palestinian Land by force and he doesn't ask Israel to leave Palestinian Territory. It's why America has become a laughing stock and lost its integrity and standing.

    • The first casualty when Jackdaw speaks is the truth.

    • JWalters....the frustrating part is too many Americans know about Israeli Interference and manipulation of their government yet insist on sitting on their combined butts doing nothing about it....just like the Brits did during Chamberlains day....the future is ominous.

  • Israeli govt and its supporters admit the fight to defeat BDS has failed
    • If BDS is not working then Netanyahu is spending large sums of money setting up Lawfare organisations and other anti BDS organisations for nothing. He would not be making such moves if it was having no effect. Look at the Pro Israeli Congress people like Rubio pushing Anti BDS Bills......how much was Rubio paid to do that?

    • Israel doesn't need American Aid.....they have successfully infiltrated the American Government and control it now. They are bleeding its resources and power. America today due to Israeli control is a shadow of its former self.

  • Israel's efforts to erase Palestinian history reflect 'incremental genocide,' Ehrenreich says
    • WorldWar 2 Germany had an alternative term for Genocide, they called it Building the Arian Race. Israel clearly mimics WW2 German tactics but does it more subtly and nefariously.

  • British uproar at Trump policies doesn’t extend to Netanyahu, yet
    • Totally agree with you about Guardian. All my comments there get monitored in case I post examples of International Law or UN History.....they make no attempt to hide their pro Israel stance. And it has cost them big time.

    • Yes oldgeezer.....and MSM does not allow comments on the majority of Israeli articles so pro Palestinian comments cannot be seen to be in the majority these days plus it silences any historical truths being published inadvertently. People see that and know its a media stitch up. It's why journalism is losing its trust amongst the communities it serves.

    • For Heaven's sake do not talk about Palestinians....your hair may fall out........it's beyond ridiculous trying to silence and hide Israeli crimes now!

    • Ken Roach's current call to remove the Tory Government is truthful and right if you believe in truth and what is right coming back into English politics. England has always been corrupt and Tories represent the rich and the descendants of the Colonial Empire hierarchy. Move them out of the way and you get the peoples party of Labour who represent the thoughts and feelings of the British people who recognise the wrongs done by Israel to the Palestinians and wish to put what Balfour started, right.

      Corbyn asked specifically for Theresa May to launch an investigation into Zionist infiltration of the British Government. She did not reply so both parties against what Israel did plus the Greens set an Independent enquiry up. It is supported bt top line politicians of both sides who want to end Israel's manipulation of its Government. It wants to expose how deep it goes. How much we learn I fear will be vetted as the sums of money and favours involved in my view will be profound,and therefore kept hidden. Hopefully it will be sobering enough for these politicians to combine and force May to listen and put a stop to Israel's meddling. Similar needs to occur in America if America believes in Freedom.

  • Land Grab: Israeli Knesset passes law legalizing expropriation of privately-owned Palestinian land
    • Gingershot. I think you are too premature in your conclusions. They fly in the face of the historical(hysterical) response to Israeli actions where the other foreign governments like UK and Europe state they deplore,condemn,find unhelpful Israeli actions and then quick as a flash do nothing. I am waiting for these wet lettuce leaf politicians who continually state they support and believe in International Law and Human rights to do something physically to stop Israel in its tracks. Sanctions as harsh as were placed on Iran are needed to topple Israel's war criminals and the ICC needs to get of its sedentary butt and take action. Israels violations are blatant and insult the hard work nations put into fixing the World at the conclusion of WW2. Did all our soldiers die for nothing? It would appear so.

    • Jackdaw....if you appear before a judge for stealing a television set and offer to pay the victim for the cost of the television you don't get off the theft charge...true or not true?

  • 'Israel receives more US military aid than every other country in the world combined' -- New York Times reveals
    • The bigger question is at what point do the American people demand the American Government do something about the Israel Lobby infiltration and manipulation of its policies that make such embarassingly large sums available to Israel which make American taxpayers lives harder due to lack of funding for their own purposes but also makes them complicit in Israeli War Crimes. It is time for all good Americans to stand up and be heard. Tell the Government the Special relationship with Israel isn't Special at all.......its humiliating and insulting for America to be involved in what Israel is doing.

  • 'We have nowhere else to go': Bedouins say they will continue to rebuild as Israel carries out home demolitions at a record pace
    • My observation having watched this problem evolve for most of my life is America was Zionisms target to fulfil its Israel Dream. They got nuclear armament assistance from America and the veto and military supremacy in the Middle East thanks to America and stalled the Palestinian State with American help as settlements spread. Then the World changed. Zionism is now making its last ditch stand to take ALL Palestine now it has manipulated Trump into power and sowed chaos. America is dead in the water as an effective superpower at the moment. Nothing stands in Zionisms way in Palestine........unless the European Union grows a pair and places harsh sanctions on Israel and shuts it out of Europe.

  • Palestinians: Israeli government 'exploiting' new US administration with new 2,500 settlement units
    • Unfortunately that is what I see also Harry.

    • Israel just gave the International Community 2500 reasons to impose harsh sanction against Israel. Will they? Chances are slim.....someone needs to dig deep and find some testicular fortitude.

  • Maryland legislature, which supported boycotts of grapes and South Africa, targets BDS
    • The main problem is pseudo zionists in the American Government being paid for by the Israel Lobby. That is the problem that needs addressing. Americans need to get vocal and call them out.

  • More and more people see 'one state only' but Remnick fears it will be like Bosnia
    • Exactly correct. Too many American Politicians are in the pay of the Israeli Lobby. Until Americans demand an end to Israeli manipulation of their government nothing will change. Right now America is a satellite of Israel.Maybe it's time to fix the problem.

  • Trump's vow to move embassy to Jerusalem is now a 'decision-making process'
    • There has been a sharp rise in anti semitism in Europe and America in recent years CigarGod.

    • Me three........anyone with the very basics of a strategic intellect can see that shifting the embassy to Jerusalem is going to trigger a large number of deaths,Israeli and Palestinian in the immediate area and it will undoubtedly spread to areas in Europe and America....particularly when you have Kahanist terrorists living and walking free in America.

  • Palestinian teen in Gaza dies after refusing to serve as a collaborator for Israel in exchange for medical care
    • Sibiriak.....it never ceases to amaze me how people think having nuclear weapons makes Israel safe. Israel's own generals have stated Israel cannot defend against a saturation missile attack,the likes of which would come from combined forces like Iran and Hezbollah. On that basis it is perfectly feasible that Israel would in fact be glazed by its own nuclear petard by even as little as one well placed missile on Dimona. The sheer volume of incoming missiles would make it impossible for Israel to shoot down every one. It only takes one to hit its target and set off a chain reaction. Crack a reactor and radioactivity alone will take care of the population. Wind drift could affect Arab States also. Military decisions are often not made by the sanest individuals.

  • Despite international pressure, Finkelstein gives talk on Gaza's 'martyrdom' at German institute
    • If ever there was a justification for imposing sanctions against Israel then we have 2500 valid reasons for doing so now.

    • It shows that though Rubio is on the other side of the World the lobby has a long reach. It was probably a long shot on the lobby's behalf to think they could get traction in Europe but it goes to show how far they can reach and how panicked they are when someone speaks the truth about Israel.

  • Saturday's marches are going to make America great again
    • Yonah.....check your facts....you will find American Pilots and planes were flying for Israel in 1948 and onward.

    • The British and Americans created Israel. The British provided the Balfour Declaration and weaponry and the Americans provided weaponry,US Taxpayer money and the veto. Without that input there would be no Israel.

    • America will not be Great again until the American people demand an end to the Special Relationship with Israel that allows its government to be manipulated and run by Israeli money and pro Israeli paid employees of Israel. America will not be Great until it puts America and Americans first and not Israel and illegal settlements. Imagine what $38 billion could do for American taxpayers in a positive sense instead of making Americans complicit in Israeli War Crimes. Trump is but a puppet of Israel. March for American Self Respect and reclaim your nation. You all deserve better than what Netanyahu and his criminals want to allow you. Britain has woken up to the damage the Israel Lobby has been doing there. C'mon America.....you've started......reclaim your nation....make your nation mean something again.

  • Trump 'promise' to move US embassy to Jerusalem stirs international furor
    • As for sleeper cells....Why is the Jewish Defence League....populated by banned Kahanist Internationally listed terrorists allowed to flourish in America?

    • Netanyahu is no dumb bunny. Zionists may have started this whole conflict off by taking land that was never theirs to take and by ethnically cleansing Palestinian villages and slaughtering Palestinians but Netanyahu during his time has taken it to a whole new level. Infiltration of the American Government by Pro Israeli's has never been greater than during his era. His open manipulation of the American Government has never before been seen to be done so obviously and insultingly by any other Israeli leader. He has also managed to point the flak away from Israel in many cases and landed it on Americas doorstep. The attacks on Gaza have been so horrific and the leaks of American armament being used so convenient that he has halved Israel's responsibility by making America complicit in his nations crimes. He effectively is taking America down with Israel.

    • Israel accepted borders as defined by Resolution 181 and declared those as its Sovereign Borders. Jerusalem was not a part of Sovereign Israel nor was the West Bank, Gaza or Golan Heights or many other places too numerous to mention. The borders Israel declared in 1948 ARE STILL ITS ONLY LEGALLY RECOGNIZED BORDERS AND IT HAS NEVER LEGALLY ANNEXED ANY OTHER TERRITORY. The Provisional Government stated Jerusalem was under Occupation.

    • Page: 7
    • Before Trump can put America First he needs to cleanse the Government of those who serve Israel First. That may take him some time given the majority in Government are Israel First. A National search is also underway seeking out where America's Self Respect has been hidden.

  • It's happening
    • Well it's no surprise squeaky clean Trumpers have joined the epitome of hygeine,Israel. We well know how fastidious Israeli's are about cleanliness......They ethnic cleanse every day.

    • Before Trump can pledge to put America first he needs to weed out the majority in Government that keep putting Israel first and he will need to declare AIPAC a Foreign Agent and shut it down.

  • Fear that Israel is becoming 'South Africa on the Mediterranean' is expressed in Park Avenue synagogue
    • That's correct James. What else is factual is Israel pushed to become a full member of UN and the UN gave it the opportunity by giving it full membership in exchange for implementing Resolution 194. Israel agreed to do so yet never has. On that basis Israel in fairness to other compliant states should be suspended from the UN until it complies and abides by its International obligations. It is currently a member under false pretences.

    • They can't look anymore impotent than they already are eljay. They only have rocks and rudimentary unguided rockets to resist with. And American and UK governments et al stand and watch as Palestinians get slaughtered....it's disgusting and lacks honour and integrity.

    • GREAT article Phil!..Huge thumbs up!

    • Couldn't agree with you more there just......sanctions are long overdue. American taxpayers need to look at the humungous deficit they currently have in the trillions and ask why billions are being paid out to Israel in aid and weaponry which obviously is majorly being used to fund an illegal occupation and collective punishment of Palestinians. All that makes Americans complicit in Israeli War Crimes. Americans need to come out and say loudly no more of this Special Relationship with Israel. Declare AIPAC a foreign agent and weed the Pro Israeli's out of government. They are putting Israel first and not America. Look at what it is in reality costing America.....look at the President AIPAC decided you would have.....Donald Trump.....the ultimate insult to America and all it previously stood for. Pro Israeli's have made a laughing stock of America.

  • Fordham bans Students for Justice in Palestine
    • Hophmi is a morale booster at Mondo......he teaches us...in his comical way.....how not to be. He has a wonderful knack of making a laughing stock of zionists. Don't take him seriously......lighten up and enjoy his comedy.

  • It turns out Jews are as stupid as everyone else
    • Is it stupid to block a debate that you are bound to lose? ...........Yes Stephen....it most certainly is. If you fail to allow discussion of a longstanding and festering problem you are setting it up to blow up in your face. Balanced thinkers know it is best to resolve all issues as they arise...not sweep them under the carpet and hope they go away or people will forget them. No one has forgotten and the problem of Israel's criminal behaviour is still in the open for it to properly deal with in accordance with its responsibilities to comply with and abide by International Law and all previous signed agreements. Ignoring the problem simply sets the ignorer up for a painful fall.

  • Video: Support for one democratic state grows as Palestinians lose hope in two-state solution
    • Two States is never finished.....Israel was carved out of Palestine with a pen stroke. Palestine can be carved out with a pen stroke also. It was simple enough for the powers that be to create Israel. The same simplicity can be applied to creating Palestine.

    • Israel declared its borders as per the Partition Plan.....Roll Israel back behind those borders with harsh sanctions and zero assistance and suspend it from the UN and make its citizens persona non grata globally.

    • Abso...Bloody.....Lutely joemowrey!

  • To be successful the French Peace Initiative must be based on international law and human rights
    • I concur with you echinococcus......Israel though at this stage is exposed and many are waking up to what has been going on. It will come down to protests and Public pressure on Politicians globally ....like South Africa.

    • Sibiriak....Israel accepted Borders as defined by 181 and declared them as well as accepting the conditions of 181 and also agreed to implement 194 in order to gain full UN Membership. Though the Palestinian Arabs rejected the Plan the UN decided to keep Palestinian Territory aside in perpetuity until Palestinians decided to agree to their own State. That can all be found at UNISPAL. America began sending military aid to Israel virtually straight away. American aviators were there. Arabs got no assistance from day one as the borders were imposed even though Israel had already begun expansion beyond its declared borders.

    • The least the Conference could have done was to call on Nations to impose sanctions against Israel to get it to withdraw from Occupied territory and cease settlements.

    • Only successful way to do that giving Israel no room to complain is to reimpose the Partition Plan as per Resolution 181 and place a multinational force there to monitor the borders and keep the peace. Israel cannot say no because the borders in the Partition are still its only declared and legal borders. East Jerusalem, Jerusalem as a whole was never inside Sovereign Israel.

    • Judging by what they created at the conference it seems nothing has changed. Whatever you do don't tell Israel the truth......they can't handle the truth!........get ready for the bloodbath....here it comes.

    • I still find it a long shot.......when Zionism really gets a head of steam up it will be like 1939 all over again. All that needs to happen is for the Conference to amount to nothing and for America to shift its embassy to Jerusalem....explosions will follow.

    • This Conference has the potential to bring the Occupation to an end. If all involved parties hold Israel accountable and holds it to International Law and its obligation to abide and comply with it then consequences must be spelt out. Non compliance must incur sanctions and travel restrictions on Israeli's in member state countries. Trade embargoes and Israeli embassy shutdowns.There can be no pussyfooting if it is to be effective...no grey areas. No semantics....Israel's favourite game move. If America does not join in as I expect then it is of little consequence. Europe et al have the ability to shut down Israel if they hold together in unity. Unity is the key.

  • Democrats' sympathy for Israel has crashed nearly 25 percent in last nine months -- Pew
  • Israeli settlers attack Palestinian videographer of Hebron shooting in attempt to 'silence documentation and resistance'
    • And the problem for Israel meddling in British Politics is getting bigger and bigger.....Americans hopefully will take heed of what the majority of British Politicians are doing.........they are calling for a full investigation on Israel's meddling.

  • The mainstreaming of Palestinian genocide
    • There are a growing amount of similarities between Israel and WW2 Germany....so many that US Government and UK Government alarm bells should have been ringing long ago. Instead they act blind,deaf and dumb.

  • Memo to Kerry: Support for one state is growing among Palestinians and Israelis
    • At some point all this will blow up in Israel and Americas face and a single state with equal rights for all will replace the Jewish State. That is the inevitable outcome and the dream of Zionism will be totally lost. It will likely also trigger War Crimes trials against Zionists who partook in illegal actions against Palestinians just like happened in South Africa. Birthrate of Palestinians is higher than Israeli's thus meaning that in a short time frame Palestinians will outnumber Israeli's and majority Government of the One State will be Palestinian. Either way you look at it, the current situation is no longer viable nor can foreign governments continue to support Israeli right winger zionists.

  • Will the Azaria verdict shield Israel from the International Criminal Court?
    • Could not agree more with your viewpoint Marnie. The American Government has lost ALL credibility by indirectly supporting Israeli War Crimes. It has no justification or rationale for doing so. Where once America was viewed as an example of fairness and justice around the World its insidious partnership has reduced it to being complicit in Israeli war crimes. Americans need to decide which side of history they are on. In 1939 they opposed a similar regime.......today they apparently support such despicable behaviours.

  • In 'breathtaking' UN vote, Obama changed his policy on Israeli settlements, making them a war crime -- Finkelstein
    • I think the article makes it clear the Occupation is unsustainable and will out of necessity and simplicity become a single state with equal rights for all thus ending the Jewish State. American Special Relationship is unsustainable also. War Crimes against Israel at some point are inevitable as it is clearly moving toward that. To lessen the damage to America for its complicity with Israel, America will have no other choice but to distance itself from Israel just like it eventually did with South Africa.

  • John Kerry picked the wrong timeline for the Jewish state
    • Kay...the one thing those of us with eyes wide open have over traitorous congress men and women who serve a Foreign Government and Israel ,is we see Israel do more to delegitimize itself by its own actions or lack of actions than any entity or persons Israel accuses of delegitimizing Israel. It is mounting up and Trump is going to have an uphill battle legitimizing support for Israel if the American people voice their discontent with exorbitant amounts of taxpayer money being spent on a war criminal State thus making Americans complicit in Israeli crimes.

    • If you check with UNISPAL site it says Israel agreed to implement Resolution 194 in return for Full UN Membership. It has never implemented 194 so UN by rights should suspend Israel from UN until it does implement it. Other States need to insist Israel keep its agreements.

  • Clinton aide called Netanyahu a ruthless 'wing nut' and Israel 'depressing'
    • Given all the serious allegations and questions hanging over Hilary Clinton the Justice Department has a public obligation to pull her from the Election campaign and properly investigate her. Not doing so is exactly the problem that constantly undermines the integrity and status of the American Government globally. Sooner or later America is going to have to face up squarely to the damage the Israeli Lobby is doing to American Governance and the nefarious issues they are engaging in to ensure they continue to keep Israel impune from prosecution for its crimes. The people around the World in the majority are not going to support America until it does take action. And that goes for the UK Government also.

    • And that will not be difficult to identify given every time a right wing Israeli Government Officials lips move, he or she is lying. It's ALL they have left.

  • 'Personally I was glad to see the outpouring of anti-Semitism,' says Jewish journalist targeted by haters
    • What concerns me is we see Ioffe penning an article specifically designed to offend and when she got the expected backlash that any journalist ,jewish or otherwise would get then because she is jewish it gets termed anti semitic regardless of how offensive she was. She was the one who went fishing and caught the fish of the day she was after. People would have done better to simply ignore the imbecile instead of giving her what she wanted. She incited the reaction she got to a large extent and those supporting the Israel regime cannot expect pussyfooting given their abhorrent behaviour toward Palestinians. Let us not forget that Germans responsible for the Holocaust were put to death for their part in the Holocaust. What will the outcome be for rightwing Zionist actions against Palestinians which have equally been as bad. She played a role like Lord Haw Haw....anyone remember him?

  • Draft of Clinton letter called BDS 'odious,' 'unconscionable' attack on 'legitimacy of Zionism'
    • Zionism was specifically launched to deprive another people of their land by force. At that point Zionism ceased to hold any legitimacy due to it amounting to nothing more than an organised group of terrorists.

  • Calling someone a 'Zionist' is anti-Semitic and abusive, say British lawmakers
    • Well....the British Govt can be made a bunch of fools by Israel but it won't stop me or hundreds of thousands of other British Subjects from calling a Zionist a Zionist. If the word is illegal then ban Zionism....which is an even greater insult to humanity and a greater cause of Anti semitism than some settler feigning insult to get the upperhand just because he doesn't like being called what he is. Ridiculous.

  • Jeffrey Goldberg should come with a warning label
    • If anyone at all is in need of treatment it would howl out to many therapists that it is Goldberg in need of serious help. He exhibits the ingrained and hardwired trait of chronic denial of Zionist crimes against Palestinians which even those with the most limited sight could either hear or see. Those crimes are what create the immense dislike Palestinians have for Israeli's and given any other community that was treated similarly to Palestinians the response would naturally be the same...a human response.....a fight for freedom.

  • Israeli Defense Minister says next Gaza war will be the last 'because we will completely destroy them'
    • Well articulated Harry. I can only add that in my view if Lieberman fulfills his threat it will end with Israel achieving total global isolation for itself and likely be the straw that breaks the camels back and bring long overdue sanctions against Israel similar to those faced by Iran. The World will tolerate so much and I cannot see the World standing back from such slaughter.

  • Clinton should cut 'how Israel is treating the Palastinians' from DC speech -- Podesta in email
    • Yes....Israel has made a complete laughing stock of America and totally eroded its ability to wield power over World Affairs. America is viewed these days as the little running dog of Israel. Americans are apparently happy with that.

    • She most certainly does not put America first.....she is paid to put Israeli interests first and on that basis should not be allowed to fill the Presidential position. She betrays America and drags its Status further down by supporting Israel's detestable actions and promising to ensure their impunity...absolutely disgusting.

  • Terrific new book by Robert Worth has vital insights into the awful war in Syria
    • And this is how and why America has lost its International standing and status through it nauseating Special Relationship with Israel. The Relationship has done nothing other than make America a laughing stock. America takes all the hatred,expenditure and lives lost while Israeli's have a nice glass of wine from their vineyards on illegally acquired land in Palestine and Netanyahu hurls insults at Obama that Obama does absolutely nothing about other than give Israel $38 billion American Taxpayer dollars. And America wonders why it is hated and laughed at.

  • Clinton to drop Israel from 'public' speeches, put it back in 'with donors' -- email
    • Odd that nothing appears on other news sites about this Harry though I don't doubt Clinton would engage in tactics like described. She is shrewd and artful and slipperier than silicone.

  • Israel's bogus history lesson
    • Yes Marnie...it'll end as will their occupation and perpetual thievery.....it is historical fact that actions such as theirs eventually backfire and they disappear from the pages of time. All Israel is doing currently is guaranteeing its demise and inevitable outcome that on this occasion the World powers will ensure that nothing like it will be allowed by the Jewish Right Wing ever again.

  • B'Tselem calls on world to 'intervene' to stop 'more perfect occupation,' and Netanyahu goes ballistic
    • I can't disagree with you there Kay....All Obama did by granting $38billion to Netanyahu was to sink America's standing globally even more. People know clearly those weapons and the money gets used to make Palestinians lives hell and continue the ethnic cleansing. I am hoping Obama makes amends by supporting a Resolution to end Settlements and the Occupation before he leaves office. America owes Palestinians that much.

    • They never seem to ask those questions Kay24....long overdue that they did and no better time than now. Israeli support is on the verge of collapse and it just needs a little more effort for the final push and the Occupation will come tumbling down. It just needs people to start asking the American Government and UK Government difficult questions with frequency in public.

  • In email, Clinton calls for a 'Potemkin' peace process
    • It emphasises to the American People that Clinton is not working for America. She is working for Israel and therefore is a Foreign Agent and needs to be called out on it and rejected soundly as a Presidential Candidate.

  • New ad campaign in college papers calls out Israeli leaders' bigotry against Palestinians
    • Very true Ossinev. Regardless of what Israel does now, the damage it has done and the harm inflicted on Palestinians does not sit well with the majority global population so no matter what Israel does it has permanently delegitimized itself by its illegal and abhorrent actions. It effectively has isolated itself. Americans have put themselves in the same boat as Israeli's by supporting,financing and weaponising Israel so it can maintain its unlawful actions. Israel has a future of withering on the vine. It eventually will be overrun. Arabs are close to saying enough is enough to Israel and regardless of Israeli nukes the Arabs and I suspect Iranians will forcibly bring Israel down. Such a state has no chance of longevity in a modern world.

    • Great link Mooser....thanks for that! Very informative and extensive read. I have bookmarked the site.

    • The thought just crossed my mind that if the UK Government has decided Zionism or Zionist are now anti semitic words then surely it follows that if someone calls themselves a Zionist and follows Zionism then they would, in fact be anti semitic. I wonder if the UK Government fully realise what they have just handed us on a plate.....lol

    • Yes Annie, but I have to say, words cannot explain the joy I am feeling at this exposing campaign by American Youth. There is no way in the wide World that any sane government should be supporting or condoning what Israel is doing. This campaign illuminates the ignorance of American and English Politicians and highlights the influence the damaging influence the Israel Lobby has on both governments. The fact the UK government has now declared Zionist an anti semitic term takes the cake.

  • 'State of Terror,' by Thomas Suárez
    • So...given Israel signed agreement to the Partition Plan and declared its borders and stated it had no sovereignty over East Jerusalem or any area outside its declared borders it should be obvious it is long overdue for sanctions and therefore should be rolled back to within its declared borders and settlements abandoned due to their obvious illegitimacy. No wonder Israeli's and Americans get attacked by Arabs.

    • To Talkback......the UN cannot even leveridge compliance to International Law when it comes to Israel. The UN has allowed it total impunity since its inception with regard to ignoring Resolutions based on International Law. Israel even has no right to be a full member given that hinged on it implementing Resolution 194. At the very least they could have and still need to suspend it until it honours its agreement. 69 Resolutions for decades it has ignored. No sanctions...nothing Yet Saddam Hussein violated 16 for twelve years and he got invaded and Iraq is trashed.

    • Fact is the UN had no Mandate and still has no Mandate to carve up any Foreign land on its say so or wishes. If it did and did it democratically then it would never have done it because the majority of inhabitants did not want Palestine carved up so the UN acted in violation of the majority's rights under democracy.

  • The Jewish confession on a future Yom Kippur
  • Shmuley Boteach seeks to blackmail Obama over his legacy
    • amigo.....I hear you loud and clear. Fact is that until someone in the American Government acquires the testicular fortitude to challenge the likes of Haim Saban,Sheldon Adelson and Boteach and lays the law down with regard to subterfuge and Foreign Government meddling in the undermining of the Sovereign American Government then nothing will change and America undoubtedly will totally lose its standing and power. AIPAC and ADL need to both be exposed and declared as foreign agents and banned from having offices in America. Israel does nothing other than bleed America of its finances and drags it down in utter humiliation before the World.

  • 'There is no stronger disorganizing force in American Jewish life than Israel'
    • What Halevi is saying is the Israeli's bit off more than they could chew. The Palestinians did not fall to their knees and thank the European Jewish settlers for rescuing them and saving them nor did they thank them for stealing their land and resources. And, we, outside of Israel are apparently uneducated. Halevi needs to learn that colonization legally ended in 1945. They were illegally given half of Palestine in violation of democratic process. The majority of the inhabitants of Palestine were against division of the land. Halevi plays victim and wants us all to feel sorry for Israeli's. Nup!....ain't gonna happen. Plainly and simply Israel is illegitimate due to Israeli unlawful actions and crimes.......Own it Mr Halevi!

  • Who knew! Israel almost started war with Hezbollah in 2015, IDF officer reveals at NY synagogue
    • He certainly loves theatrical and fictional melodrama.

    • I made no mention of Jews persay. So I did not conflate Jews. I did conflate the Israeli Government and American Governments. They are ALL BUT one and the same these days given Israeli interference and infiltration into the US Government.

    • Most unrest in the Middle East is created by Israel to destabilise surrounding states so they become incapable of mounting attacks against Israel. America accompanies Israel in these events because Israel for some time has had complete control over the American Government. Syria was destabilised initially by Israel smuggling weapons in and building rebel groups up to topple Assad because Assad every year demanded the Golan Heights be returned. Libya was taken out because they support Palestine. Lebanon same reason. Shah was best mates with Israel when he was put in charge of Iran.

  • In full page NYT ad, liberal Zionist group calls for ethnic segregation to retain Jewish majority within Israel
    • True...the UN had and has no Mandate to carve foreign nations up. Palestine was carved up to solve the displaced Jews and stateless jews problem in Europe and give them a home. Intent was honourable. What was dishonourable was ignoring the majority of inhabitants in Palestine who opposed it.

      There is no way now to feasibly turn back the clock. Frankly I would like to see Israel erased as a State. It has kept none of its Sovereign obligations,and furthermore, it should be banished from the UN given it recieved full UN membership by implementing Resolution 194, which it has never done so its place in the UN is illegitimate. Fact is it declared its borders to those as defined by Resolution 181 and it agreed to abide by the conditions of 181.

      That,above, is a reasonable start point. I am not talking about rewarding Israel any stolen territory. In my view the International Community needs to roll Israel back behind its true declared 1948 borders thus allowing Gaza and West bank to reconnect as it was under the Partition. It recreates two contiguous states and a fair division.

      I also believe Palestine deserves the right to have a Defensive Military Force to deter Israel from attacking it. The only threat to Palestine historically has been Israel. Palestinians quite rightfully have a right to self defence. Maybe Putin can supply them with S400 Anti Aircraft systems to ensure no airspace violations from Israel.

      Israel needs to be made to pay just compensation for property stolen and displacement of Palestinians and the loss of their homes. Israel needs to be made to understand that the onus is on them to prove they are worthy of trust and until they prove that all international borders should be closed to ALL Israeli citizens. The World needs to be firm and show no tolerance for Israeli pedantics or semantics.

    • That strategy I describe falls within accepted defence strategies employed by Nato and SEATO signatories for dealing with terrorist groups that disrupt the peace and stability in other nations territories and Israel has gotten away with terrorising Palestinians for seventy years....not the fifty Amos Oz dribbles on about.

    • Marnie.....I have sat here and pondered this article for some time. I ended up going left field here. View it from this point. Agree with them but instead of segregation use the term separation. It is quite clear that Israeli's will not agree to peace and actually want rid of all Palestinians in Palestine. Not going to happen. The Palestinians have stood their ground outgunned and technically disadvantaged have been immovable more or less. What has become the tragedy and outrage is the Israeli's have begun gunning them down homicidally for the slightest reason. They ignore their obligations to comply with signed agreements and International Law so reimposing Resolution 181 and giving Israel an ultimatum and stating enough is enough and they must return their people within a specified time frame back behind their originally declared borders made in 1948. They are Israels only legitimate borders. If Israel even looks like retaliating then tactically positioned forces can take out any nukes they might launch and saturate Tel Aviv etc with conventional missiles and bombs plus target settlements that are belligerent. No more tolerance. Being nice does not work with Israeli's.

    • I concede Mooser.....I posted that after having my painkillers for the day...they have a lot to answer for. I put my coffee in the fridge to heat it up often then lose my coffee....lol

    • You are correct about no need for more Resolutions the main one s 181 and 238 and 242 spell it out clearly that Israel is illegitimate in its actions and its own leaked documents show it defied the legal position it was required to act on deliberately. Therefore the World has every right to give Israel the very sanctions it demanded be placed on Iran. Consequences for Israel are very grave. It is in no position to take on the World.

    • Kay24...sad truth is that it is clear after this week the American Government is simply a defacto Israeli Government operating from America against the wishes and interests of Americans.

    • Wouldn't a basket of dirigibles be a better description to use in conjunction with Clinton....full of hot air.......Mooser?

    • Here we have clear proof of subterfuge being carried out by Israel against the American people and their government. 88 Traitorous senators doing the bidding of foreign agents of Israel AIPAC and ADL. The clear intent to make America complicit in Israels violations of International Law and War crimes against the Palestinian people. That in any real interpretation is an act of war committed by Israel against America. It allows Israel to steer the American Government whilst administering its directives in safety through AIPAC and ADL. Already this week we have seen Secret papers from Israel Foreign ministry stating it has deliberately been breaking the Fourth Geneva Convention since 1967. We have heard Kerry earbash Russia at the UN about Syria dropping chemical weapons on civilians again and again and again and again as Kerry asserted, with impunity. Obama has stated this week also that Strongman Governments with dictatorial regimes have no future and that Democracies are by far the more desired global wish. Yet America can't practice what it preaches because traitorous senators in the American Government ignore the will of the American people and instead carry out the will of Israel an apartheid and criminal state engaging in religious supremacism . The defacto Israeli government sitting in the Whitehouse has allowed the criminal state of Israel to act with impunity for seventy plus years while it dropped illegal white phosphorous shells and D.I.M.E explosives on innocent Palestinian civilians. Israel murders civilians in the illegally occupied Palestinian territories openly....doesn't hide it anymore. Fills in Palestinian water wells and demolishes their houses and does all this with impunity thanks to the defacto Israeli government in Washington using the power of the American peoples veto at the UN. Any backlash against Israel is worned by the American people instead. Not rocket science to work out why Americans are increasingly under threat. This election two more American traitors are running for president....paid employees of Israel..........Stand up America and take your nation back.

  • In Brookings poll, most Dems say $38 billion aid package to Israel is 'way too much' while the GOP is split
    • Not sure if I am correct here but I believe the American Supreme Court could maybe intervene here to stop the American Government endangering the American economy by giving out money that only serves to make its financial position worse. The American Government is guilty of gross malfeasence.

  • Two women's boats set sail for Gaza in effort to break blockade
    • Turkey should arrange one of its warships to patrol the area with photographers on board to observe any wrongdoing by Israeli water pollution ships.

    • All the best to all aboard and wish you all a safe journey and more so a safe return.

  • Netanyahu's big lie
    • Ziocaine addicts forget that prior to around 1945 Right of Conquest was legal....after 1945 it became illegal. Zionists know that and so they switch to the Bible gave Palestine to Jews. That cannot be used either because it is not an Internationally recognised legal document and religion plays no part in International Law. If it did no agreements would be reached. Zionists know their actions in Palestine and their claims hold no legitimacy at all.....yet America provides them with ever increasing aid and weaponry to continue enforcing their illegal Occupation and illegal Settlements and ethnic cleansing which in seventy years plus has created the Worlds biggest refugee issue totally in excess now of five million Palestinians.

    • Just saw your post and link talknic...Great cartoon and very honest!

  • Trump team campaigns hard for votes one place it stands to do well -- Israeli settlements
    • Absolutely bewilders me that Americans have allowed it to happen but more astounding is they allow it to continue Kay24.....It flies in the face of Sovereignty laws and the sanctity of an independent nation.

    • Sad but true Citizen...someone needs to prise open Dick and Jane's eyes.

    • So Trump is openly engaging in subterfuge to gain votes and ensure he is elected. The reality here is he is using the services of a Foreign Government to undermine the American Electoral system. He is serving Israeli illegal interests. Subterfuge. This Election in actuality should be declared invalid due to Foreign interference, namely by Israel....it cannot be ignored or denied.

  • Israel's plan to retool occupation includes color-coding 'good' and 'bad' Palestinians
    • Doesn't matter which way it gets stood up Kay 24...criminal is criminal......and Israel is every bit a criminal State deserving abso- bloody- lutely no support. British and American Governments need to get that memo very quick.

    • Yes Eljay....those are the words missing....exterminate....exterminate! Lieberman et al are missing the point. Around the World if this plan is actioned will come a backlash where people will likely categorize Jews. Green for non Zionist Jews....Red for Zionist Jews and bright Yellow for Zionist settlers and the same rules will apply. Carrot and stick. Green Jews will get access to overseas travel and business investment and Red and Yellow Jews will have a permanent ban on access and travel to overseas destinations. That is in reality what Lieberman is setting up but I doubt he has thought that far. What Palestinians want is simple. They want Israeli's gone from their land. They want their own land and determine their own future. They want nothing whatsoever to do with Israel because it offers nothing they truly want or need.

  • Syrian death tolls and the kinder gentler jihadists
    • Death tolls,death tolls, death tolls. The press will never get an accurate figure on death tolls .....never. Can they count the bodies vaporised by missiles and bomb blasts at point of impact...no they can't so no death toll count officially undertaken by anyone can be accurate. What I can say is it is higher than anyone is willing to say. That includes the Occupation of Palestine. Much goes unreported. When war comes to town all civil sensibilities go out the door. Behaviour normally seen in society goes out the door. Law of the jungle applies. The person holding the biggest ,newest weapon reigns supreme and slight disagreement can result in death because with a weapon in your hand there is no need for negotiation. People switch to survival mode and fear drives everything. People hide so are assumed dead. People escape the active areas and shift to other lands and are assumed dead. Some even go so far as changing their appearance and take on new identities and are assumed dead. Impossible to get accurate death tolls due to the nature of war and its variables. Any official total is miles out. Anyone who has been on active service will get what I am talking about. One point I will make is this. With Israel and Palestine many if not all Palestinian deaths were avoidable had America and Britain not helped Israel to escape justice and its obligations under Law. Had America and Britain done as it should have under Law Israel would have been forced back behind its legal borders saving thousands of lives. That still can be done.

  • Huma Abedin dumps Anthony Weiner, occupation denier
    • That is it in a nutshell. Zionism would have us believe it is perfectly normal to take someones land,subjugate its people,burn teenage Palestinians alive and adults also,demolish their homes and forcibly remove them off their land and its okay. Hold them captive in an open air prison called Gaza and bomb them excessively and repeatedly every two years. Everyone does it apparently....perfectly normal behaviour. And woe betide Palestinians if they should retalliate against such OTT Behaviour......not acceptable. Palestinians should know full well they are supposed to kneel beside trenches in open fields waiting for the Brave IDF to come along and shoot them in the back of the head. I get it....I mean why would anyone get so upset with Israel....why? So unfair....we have it all wrong about Israel.

  • 'Everything that we have done since 9/11 is wrong' -- the worldview of Major Todd Pierce (Retired)
    • Citizen....Israel cannot reject it on that basis as Lord Caradon in Resolution 242 spelt it out for Israel. Acquisition of territory by force is inadmissible....that is International Law. From around the end of WW1 Right of Conquest was determined as illegal. Look at the mess the German Occupation made and how many were dispossessed. Look at the huge numbers of refugees Israel has created in seventy odd years of Occupation. There is a reason Right of Conquest was ended yet Zionists always use the American Indian and America as a defense for continuing the Occupation. Right of Conquest was legitimate back then. Israel illegally took the land knowing Right of Conquest was illegal.

    • Thanks also Annie!....answered a lot for me and confirmed for me that much of what I was thinking was correct and that I was right to be confused about some military asset placements and lack of others. Whilst in the Australian Navy I worked in your equivalent of the CIC on board ship. We all had a pretty high security classification to work there and we had access to intelligence information and tactical methods etc so over time I got familiar due to our close interaction with US Forces, what Divisions and Squadrons were used for what and why. Interpreting Intelligence images and weapons assessment was all part of the job.

      Watching the Gulf Wars live I was watching things unfold and thought why is this happening and why is that group there and why hasn't this happened first etc. So reading what I did in your link answered heaps and told me I wasn't nutz and that I hadn't mixed things up. And yeah.....a lot of confusing information gets fed to the media to hide the truth of what's going on. Happened in the Vietnam War and even in conflicts after. Much is done to keep troops safe as they execute operations....some is to keep the media dumb.

      Oh...and one last thing....it was inevitable to me that Iraq was going to end up creating a mess because a vital part of any ground war was left out and it was left out, as I understand it by Donald Rumsfeld at his insistance.

    • Never mind the fact Israel ratified and signed the Fourth Geneva Convention. Shows how cowardly they are. Israel shows its criminality by ignoring International Law. America too. The Israeli Government and the American Government need to come out in Public and admit it. Show a bit of courage and conviction in their beliefs of self righteousness. Instead they scuttle around in the backrooms in darkness like so many infected rodents.They don't admit it because they know the general population would ask for their resignation and they would get no support from their people for their actions.They are deliberately putting every single one of us in harms way.

    • I keep telling myself this is not what the General Public of America want from their government. I strongly believe that. I know plenty of Americans and basically they are good,solid, good natured and well intentioned people with huge hearts. I think Americans this election need to send a message loud and clear to those at the top. Whether it takes the form of protests or simply writing to your local representative. The message needs to be sent. And the Special Relationship needs to end.

    • the adultery issue points to a basic breakdown of military discipline. Having served in the Australian military I am conversant with disciplinary expectations and military rules of US and Commonwealth Forces which are extremely similar. All military personnel are required to conduct themselves in a manner that does not bring the service into disrepute. Adultery does exactly that.....it undermines morals and good conduct.

    • Whatever you do don't mention Israel. Heaven forbid.....next thing you know all the Israeli war crimes will be uncovered and friends of Jackdaw will be put on trial at the Hague. Lord!....that means Justice.......another word that should be made illegal and outlawed. Can't have any of that. Always remember the Special Relationship.....ssshhhhhhhh! Don't tell anyone Yakov! :)

  • Occupied Palestinian village coveted by Jewish settlers is dubbed 'miserable' in Washington Post
    • America IS in dire straits.....it can no longer legitimately defend Israel. It is complicit in Israeli unlawful actions due to the weaponry and aid it gives Israel that Israel uses to compact and maintain the Illegal Occupation and Settlement Enterprise that clearly involves ethnic cleansing and genocide. How do the American people feel and its government officials feel that the first mission the brand spanking new F-35 JETS gifted to Israel flew, was a bombing and missile attack on the already demolished Gaza Strip....Fifty flights attacking Gaza with these brand spanking new state of the art weapons platforms used to attack defenceless,trapped Palestinians for one unguided homemade rocket that entered Israel and hit nothing. What was so threatening about the people of Gaza that required these space age weapons. A biplane with hand dropped munitions could have done the job safely. What absolute hero's the IDF are as are the American Government officials who signed the deal and keep signing deals for aid to Israel. Their actions cannot be justified or defended in any way shape or form. And Hilary plans on letting the Israeli leader into the Whitehouse....makes me feel damned nauseous.

  • Critiques not fit to print: Students and allies respond to 'NYT' coverage of Palestine activism on campus
    • Maybe he was Froggy.....it does not invalidate the content of my post nor its point.What Stephen is saying is how many Zionists portray their defense.

    • Way to go Annie......best response to Zionist Hasbara is the truth! They have no defense or argument against it.

    • If someones oratory makes a person feel uncomfortable then that person needs to ask themselves why they feel uncomfortable. Do they find the statements uncomfortable because it is the truth? I would suggest many Pro Israeli's find the truth uncomfortable. I understand also why they would wish to silence it. Words cannot harm you. If you speak the truth there is no need to defend. We are as sick as the secrets we keep. Actions of Israel cannot be silenced. Too much is in the open and Israel cannot be protected from Justice for much longer because what is happening is just plain wrong on so many levels and that is, I would suggest,Pro Israeli's wish to silence it. They always have and do understand the gravity and illegitimacy of what they do and fully understand they face serious consequences if it ends up in the open and ends up being discussed. That honesty is likely the cause of Stephen Shenfields response here. Truth cannot be attacked and needs no defense. People see truth clearly in the photographs and video and audio files released for public view. Reams of Paperwork at the UN and ICC speak the truth clearly. Why else would Stephen want it made illegal to talk about....bit over the top if it simply makes a person uncomfortable and is simply inconsiderate. Grow a thicker skin Stephen or cease actions and stop supporting issues that are too hot for your sensibilities to handle. Burning people alive doesn't seem to disturb Pro Israeli sensibilities...but words do eh?.....wow!!!

  • Liel Leibovitz wants to excommunicate most American Jews, beginning with Beinart
    • Your second to last paragraph spells out clearly what Israel is facing due to the rise of the Right under Netanyahu and when ALL Jews start realising that then Israel will get less and less support and justice will be able to be met out to the likes of Netanyahu and ALL his ilk.They are living on borrowed time currently and their panic building more settlements is proof they know the end is coming.

  • Many Clinton Foundation donors oppose BDS-- and so does Clinton
    • Yes Lillian.....Zionism will happily don the mantle of anything in order to get the job done even religion. Hence it garners support from Evangelicals to Right Wing Christians to Judaism....it perverts anything it can to use as a tool. Kinda like an all purpose infection....one size fits all!:)

    • That article is very interesting RoHa because it talks of a British imposed famine on Iran in 1917-1919 due to war effort. Britain caused famine in Scotland and Ireland around the same time for the same reason and in Scotland it resembled images of the Warsaw Ghetto in places like Motherwell which were hardest hit and bodies of children and adults that had starved to death lay where they dropped on the streets. Despicable. Not many people know that thousands were forced to leave their land and homes in Scotland and flee to America and Canada, NZ and Australia simply to survive and the English Aristocracy took the land they left.

    • Thoroughly agree Kay24 but all this talk about shutting down BDS is going to be very costly for Saban and Clinton et al to put into action. Kay Griggs has opened another can of worms for the Zionists too with her allegations and proof of Zionist meddling in US Government policies. BDS though means targeting individuals of which there are thousands. BDS is not one entity it is a gathering of efforts of many many individuals requiring court action for every individuals which means it will stretch government efforts too the max and run into billions which they cannot possibly sustain. It will be interesting to watch because its not the only problem they have.
