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

  • Natalie Portman opens a BDS Pandora's Box for liberal Zionists
    • If there is a Pandora's Box to be opened it will be the one Palestinians are attempting to open by charging the Zionist Regime of Racism and Discrimination. If proven it will open the door to reimpose the Resolution Banning Zionism that previously was overturned.

  • In Photos: While the world watches Gaza, Israeli forces invade Nabi Saleh
    • It is totally bewildering why any person would support what Israel is doing. What's worse is the American Government constantly states it has an unbreakable bond with Israel based on shared values....REALLY?. I do wonder whether the majority of Americans do share these values exposed by the IOF.....I doubt it. The American Government cannot defend supporting Israel yet it does.

  • Israel and its Democratic Party friends complain -- Trump gave Syria to Russia 'on a silver platter'
    • The American Government, Democrats and Republicans need to learn the public no longer support Israel due to its threat to Middle East Peace and its blatant, continued war crimes against Palestinians. If Israel is so determined to want Syria and Assad out of the way then let them use the American firepower thay have been given on a silver platter, to do the damage themselves. Let Israel lose the troops and Pilots and not Americans or Brits or French. Russia has warned Israel to stay out. Syria now has air defences that can take out Israeli jets operating illegally from Lebanon Air Space. Russia has its own Air Defences to use should Russians come under attack. Syria is no longer a pushover and China has just deployed warships to the area. Let Israel deal with what they created by manipulation and meddling and violations of International Law. The problem is of Israel's own making.

  • Influential rabbi teaches would-be Israeli soldiers: Genocide is a mitzvah
    • I would be inclined to go a touch further. Not only is Israel culturally disadvantaged it is also morally disadvantaged with a large degree of cognitive dissonance present in a large number of its inhabitants of Zionist persuasion. Israel should be declared an Open Air Lunatic Asylum judging by the article above.

  • Sen. Warren and 5 congresspeople finally criticize Israel's killings; pressure mounts on Feinstein
    • Very true John O......however, intelligence dictates that the alleged unbreakable bond between America and Israel needs to be snapped like a twig if America wants to ditch being viewed as a ventriloquists dummy for Israel.

    • If Syria must be held to account then when will Israel be held to account for its violations and deliberate murder of civilians.

    • So President Trump said today...."To Iran and to Russia, I ask: what kind of nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children?"

      I ask.....Why does Trump and his Government continue to hold hands with the Apartheid regime of Israel responsible for ethnic cleansing of Palestinians and supporting land therft, murder of unarmed civilians and use of prohibited Dum Dum Ammunition. You will be known by the friends you keep.

  • Netanyahu says Israeli snipers are doing ‘holy work’
    • Well Jack....the Palestinians are doing their utmost to resist the European Israeli invaders.

  • Jews and trauma
    • The Russians don't use their losses in the same manipulative fashion as Israeli Zionists use the Holocaust.You know full well what I mean dimadok.

    • Welll....that was quite a read. I have no dispute that the Holocaust was an extremely traumatic event. It has to be viewed objectively for sanity to prevail and with an unbiased eye. During WW2 ,20 million Russians were slaughtered by Germany. Hundreds of thousands of Prisoners of war were subjected to incarceration in Japanese run camps where treatment was equally horrific if not worse. When Japan invade China...same thing...wholesale slaughter and medical experiments conducted on Chinese while they were alive to simulate battle conditions. All these situations were traumatic and horrific for those who had the misfortune to experience them first hand. It is only the Jewish people who seem to keep their experience alive by reliving the trauma over and over again and using it as a sympathy card to gain impunity for wrongs they commit against others. We hear of no Russians doing the same thing with the exception of Russian Jewish Settlers in Israel. Phsychologically we do know the abused can go on to be the abuser if left untreated which seems to be Israel's case. This however does not excuse Israel for its violations and criminal actions against the Palestinian People. Palestinians were not nor did they take part in the Holocaust. The Jewish people in Palestine simply have no excuse. The Holocaust does not give them the right to abuse others and is an insult to those who gave their lives in the Holocaust. Never Again covers and means and includes ALL People

  • Israel just lost American Jews
    • What I find most disturbing is elected officials in EU and US and British governments, where the citizenry of said governments oppose Israeli actions in Palestine by a large percentage, are totally mute and immobile. The absolute arrogance of these politicians is astounding. They are elected to serve the people int the countries they were elected and act in the peoples interest and not in Israel's interest. Something is definitely going to give. What these politicians are doing is unsustainable and undemocratic.

    • This is the Key to it all. The American Government could have ended this conflict decades ago by insisting Israel abide by Resolutions and International Law or no Aid. The American Government still holds that power with the exception now that Israel controls the American Government. Time for Americans to reclaim their government and outlaw anyone acting on manipulating government policy for Israel's benefit so it can continue its criminal activities. American Jews hold the key here and can benefit Jews Worldwide by outlawing Israeli intransigence and criminal policies.

  • Jewish state, Jewish values, Jewish shame
    • Stephen.....we cannot change others but we can change how we react against them and we can cease enabling them and give them consequences for their wrongful actions thus making them responsible for their actions. Until people take that basic pschological strategy for Israel then there is no incentive for Israel to change. If it becomes more and more uncomfortable for Israeli's to continue their wrongful actions against Palestinians then out of necessity they will change themselves. We provide them incentive to change by withdrawing support and giving them consequences....good and bad.

  • B'Tselem calls on Israeli soldiers to defy shooting orders, lest they commit war crimes
    • The sad reality is until American, EU and British Governments de louse themselves of Israeli infiltrators and grow a pair then nothing will happen regardless of how legally wrong it is. Israel has control of all major governments so until that changes no action against Israel will occur. A despicable truth and one that politicians of those governments will have on their conscience for life.

  • Pelosi and 9 Dems had 'excellent meeting' with Netanyahu even as Israel sent 'dozens of snipers' to Gaza
    • This article presents exactly why America's status and support has dropped so markedly in recent years. These days I am hard pressed to find anyone here in NZ who supports America. People even resent Americans moving here now to escape the mess Zionists have been allowed to create in America. Sad state of affairs. It will take strong and dedicated politicians in America to enforce a solely American government and throwing out the trash that has been allowed to infiltrate it.

  • Saudi Arabia's crown prince says Israelis have a 'right to have their own land'
    • I am Scottish Kate and was raised in England for my first eleven years. Eight weeks of every year of those eleven my father would take me to Scotland to Motherwell where he was born. He would take me to battlegrounds and castles and teach me the history. My cousins would teach me the culture whilst we played. My family were protestants and my cousins would always tell me we were not allowed Catholic friends and we were obligated to insult them and throw stones at them so the situation in Scotland was similar to Ireland though never descended into civil war.

    • You are an absolute rose in a topic of thorns Kate...lol....love reading your articles.

    • The US Government and British Governments are largely responsible for making the UN toothless. They use their veto power to block any Resolution that requires Accountability of Israel for breaches of International Law. The US alone has wielded most vetoes to protect Israel. It was interesting that Nikki Haley the American Motor Mouth was mute as to her reasons for blocking the investigation into Gaza shootings. For once her poisonous lips were switched to standby.....says a lot really. Israel to a large extent is mimicking the actions of the Third Reich....use of butterfly shells,White Phosphorous as an offensive weapon against civilians, live fire to break up protests and ethnic cleansing and gas.......just a few similarities. Blitzkreig is Israel's main tool under the name of Dahiya Doctrine.

  • On the 'double standard' for Israel
    • What I find odd is Zionist Israeli's are anti semitic toward Palestinians in a far more damaging and deadly sense than anyone is on a global basis anti semitic toward Israel. Yet Zionists complain the loudest of Anti semitism toward Jews and Israel.

  • Trump appointed Bolton because Republicans desperately need Adelson's money
    • You got it Harry....it is high time Americans starting talking loudly about Israel manipulating politics in America and therefore making the American Government an Israeli puppet. As an ex serviceman it is obvious to me Israel does not have the men or armoury to deal with Iran and with Iraq , Saddam would have rained down scuds etc on Israel had they entered the Iraq war.

      With Iran it is a much bigger and population wise more larger than Israel can handle and its missile numbers are phenominal. Israel has no hope of winning that battle either. Israel's loss of life would be huge so they will manipulate the American Government to send its military and men in......even they will suffer huge losses. Iran is no pushover like Iraq.

      Americans need to decide whether they want to serve Israel's needs or their own. There is no possible advantage of attacking Iran just to please Israel. If Israel wants war with Iran let it do so and let Israel get the thumping it deserves to learn its lesson.

  • War-loving, Muslim-hating John Bolton wants to give 'pieces' of Palestine to Jordan and Egypt
    • It's clear then that Trump idolizes Netanyahoo. Netanyahoo wants to go to war to attempt saving his sorry ass in court....Trump copycats Netanyahoo. Great! Proof positive that America is an Israeli satellite run from Israel via Adelson and Saban. Come on America......reclaim your land and Government.

    • Absolutely none of this nonsense will change until Americans demand AIPAC be declared a foreign agent and known pro Israel political funders like Adelson and Saban are shut down for interfering in American Governance by financing obvious bribes to American Politicians so they tow the Zionist line. Americans need to demand Israel ceases to meddle in American Politics and if necessary ban Zionists from holding any Government positions in America. Zionism and its money used for Israeli endeavours is what eats away day by day, year by year at Americas global standing and status. The Special Relationship with Israel and protecting the criminal State of Israel from accountability for its crimes violating International Law ,acts as an anchor around Americas neck.

  • Memo to 'NYTimes:' Go to Ahed Tamimi's village in Palestine and report the truth
  • Rabbi Cardozo: outlawing circumcision would 'end the state of Israel'
  • Schumer and Dems outdo Trump at AIPAC-- there's no peace because 'Palestinians don't believe in Torah'
    • Yes, Edward Q, that is what I recall also...thankyou for refreshing my memory. Herzl also promoted Zionist using anti semitism to garnish sympathy globally for their cause.

    • My understanding based on what I have read over the years is Zionist embraced Religion in order to increased their support base. They didn't have the numbers alone to get a Jewish State through without larger global support so my feeling and view is that Zionists are not religion based. They will however call black white and white black if it promotes their cause. Supremacism and World Domination.

    • The disturbing aspect of the statement made by Schumer is it states clearly Zionists want to impose their religion on the World. It makes a solid case that modern Israel is very much a global threat to peace just as 1939 Germany was. For Evil to prosper Good men need do Nothing.

  • Jared Kushner's swift rise and long, long fall
    • This has to be the worst American Government AIPAC ever supplied to the American People. As for Haley the Gob UN Ambassador......lol.....you can see Netanyahu's arm up her back and his lips moving when she yells.

    • Can't do much about Kushner and his ilk until Americans stop letting the Israel Lobby and its Zionist buddies run the American Government. They pick and choose who serves in Government....not Americans,

  • In fit of mendacity, Israeli official claims Mohammed Tamimi, 15, was not hit in the head by a bullet
    • People like Roger Waters who speaks the truth.....irrefutable truth, puts Zionist Israeli's in a panic because they cannot buy him off nor silence him.

  • The case for liberal anti-Zionism
  • Trump's ambassador says the unspeakable: Uprooting settlers could 'cause civil war'
  • Israelis disfigure Damascus Gate with steel watchtower
    • Jackdaw scripted zionist Hasbara ploy designed to deviate the conversation away from the topic because he is losing....diddums.

    • Of course ,Jackdaw, as usual is blind to the fact that the Occupation, ethnic cleansing, summary executions, house demolitions and general collective punishment of Palestinians sets Israeli's up to be attacked; Take all these things away and peace would be the outcome however Israeli's won't because they need to see themselves as perpetual victims even though its obvious they are the cause of their own misfortunes.

    • Like the little white shoe boxes splattering their eyesore looks all over the surrounding slopes of Jerusalem, the watchtower is also an eyesore designed by some mentally impaired architect. Israeli's have done nothing but ruin a historic land.

  • Abbas warns Security Council, Palestinians could become 'refugees or terrorists in Europe'
    • I would not be too sure about EU not crossing the floor to oppose US and Israel. Everyone is getting a little tired of the pompous fools in charge of both countries and the harm they have both caused in the Middle East. Abbas at least had the fortitude to get up and tell it like it is. Haley of course has never liked hearing the truth.....she prefers to hear the lies spewing forth from her mouth.

  • The emperor's new terrorist
  • 'I faced my Jewish racism' -- an alumnus's call to Jewish students for Israeli Apartheid Week
    • Donald Trump stated recently that the Israeli/Palestinian Conflict is the most difficult in the World to resolver. It is if the American Government buys into Israeli BS. It is if the American Government ignores Israeli statements made when it accepted and agreed to Resolution 181. When the Israeli Government declared its Sovereignty it accepted borders as defined by and conditions outlined in 181. Those are still the borders and conditions that the International Community officially recognises Sovereign Israel upon.

      When the Provisional Israeli Government was asked which territory was Sovereign and which was Occupied it declared the West Bank including Jerusalem to be Occupied. This means Jerusalem held no significance or importance in reality to the Israeli Authorities. It only became so after 1967 when Israel began to look at expansion into ALL of Palestine in contravention of International law. There is no dispute and The American Government could resolve the Conflict tomorrow,,,,today and end the suffering and injustice for Palestinians by witholding ALL AID to Israel until it complies with International Law.....Simple....not difficult.

  • Palestinian mental health professionals in Israel say international conference should not be held in Tel Aviv
    • It's the perfect opportunity for Israeli Mental Health professionals to ask the Global community of Health Professionals to deal with Israel's growing and disturbing progression of societal mental health problems that Israeli Mental Health professionals have failed to reign in.

  • Zionism's tailspin: Stark minority of young California Jews are 'comfortable with idea of Jewish state'
    • Just noticed on Palestinian Chronicle that Israel plans to stop benefits to those citizens of Israel that support BDS.

    • The answer does not lie in the money though it does buy influence. The answer lies in the Justice Department and American Law. These laws were written for a purpose to protect the nation and its people. If it is illegal for a foreign power to meddle in American Governance then American Politicians have much to answer for and act upon. Israel openly meddles in American governance. Therefore if the American Government does not take action against outlawing Israel and holding it to account then Americans are being betrayed by their government. Full Stop....end of.

  • Story of Israel's influence shadows the Russian influence story
    • If it is wrong for Russia to meddle in American Politics then it follows it is wrong for Israel to do the same and Israel has been infiltrating and manipulating Congress and the Electoral Process for a darn sight longer. Americans are looking rather silly at the moment.

  • Israel’s Justice Minister endorses apartheid -- the Jewish state 'at the expense of equality'
    • Let Ayelet Shakeled the poisoned tongue little viper, be the first to stand before the court at the Hague and be held answerable for her crimes.

  • High-profile actors, artists, athletes, and activists join Dream Defenders in supporting Ahed Tamimi
    • Absolutely comcur with you Ossinev

    • The main reason the court gave for blocking access to media and European Govt Reps was they say done in the best interests of Ahed. The truth is they do not want the global community to see what a farce their military courts are. It is time for the Global community to demand of their Govt Representatives that they stop making excuses and put the Israeli Military Occupation of Palestine on trial and free the Palestinians from the perpetuation and torment and torture of the callous Israeli Occupation.

  • Israeli publisher slams US ambassador for 'perpetuating apartheid' in West Bank
    • It is not only the falling birthrate that undermines Zionism and therefore Israel . It is also the decline and degradation of Israeli Zionist behaviour which shows no sign of slowing down...it just plumbs lower and lower every day.

  • Resisting 'the new normal'
    • Your statement to Ossinev ,Jon66, makes me wonder why you don;t support freedom of speech to oppose the Zionist State of Israel that openly supports Apartheid against Palestinians and any non jewish people and a regime like Israel's that openly commits War crimes with impunity supported by America. BDS opposes such actions. An Honourable stance. Looking at Israel's actions......they closely Mimmick Nazi Germany's actions yet you apparently support them. Your hypocracy is glaringly obvious.

    • It is rapidly reaching the moment where Americans realise that supporting Israel and giving it billians to wage wars against Arabs that place American lives at greater and greater risk is undermining America's global Status. Americans are the only government unequivocally supporting the actions and war crimes of the Zionist State of Israel. Billions of American Dollars are being syphoned off away from America that Americans need to fix problems in their own nation. Zionists are making a laughing stock of Americans by bleeding them of their money to finance their supremacist Apartheid wars against Arabs. America has no future while it remains tied to Israel.....it is a large dark blemish that is highly visible globally on America.

  • Israeli ambassador devotes much of his speech to small group of protesters outside
    • Dayan is proof positive that no matter how hard Israeli's try you cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

  • Israeli diplomat calls on American students 'to restore the honor' of vilified word-- Zionism
    • You cannot restore Honour to Zionism when it is the most cowardly form of racism known to man today. Look at the numbers of children Zionism has incarcerated and tortured in Israel. Look at the unarmed people they gleeefull shoot to kill. They shoot three year olds dead and pregnant unarmed women. How can anyone view Zionism as honourable.

  • 'Killing civilians is unheard of' -- Israeli propaganda gets red carpet reception in US press
    • I cannot wait until non pro Israeli politicians are forced to enter the Whitehouse via armed checkpoints and are arrested and held under administrative detention and their homes bulldozed. Maybe then Americans will wake up but somehow I think Israel could bomb Pro Palestinian cities in America like Gaza and the American Government would still support Israel.

  • Pro-Israel Democrats concede 'human rights' issue is killing the brand
    • Jack Green is using Goebbels Propoganda 101 here. If you tell a lie often enough it will be believed.

  • No, hurting Palestinian refugees doesn't help peace
    • Weeeelllllll....ya see in 47 and after Zionists forced Palestinians over the border and drove them to the river bank by the coach load. Those trying to flee back to Palestine were shot hence large numbers of Palestinians in Jordan. Israel created it.

  • Israeli lawmaker tells BBC he'd put Ahed Tamimi 'in the hospital' by kicking her face
    • The Public Face of Israel courtesy of Oren Hazan. What a brave man he is to kick a 17 year old Palestinian young woman in the face . Disgusting....It makes me want to puke. It begs the question though, What forthright, fair minded, reasonable Nation would support Israel. They deserve condemnation and hauling before the Hague.

  • Israeli lawfare organization sues BDS activists for advising Lorde to cancel Israel concert
    • Lol...Israel would be unwise to push it. They are not exactly colour of the month around the Globe or maybe you missed that. Any further action from them would simply raise the ire of and motivate the global community to tighten restrictions on Israel more. Seems you missed the articles on Europe tightening up restrictions on settlements. NZ lawyers are also quite formidable and blunt so Israel will recieve an education if nothing else. Israel really doesn't want to draw anymore attention to itself right now....it is bleeding too much money already.

    • There judgement won't fly here. Freedom of Speech is protected here

    • I can tell you that all the kiwi's I know in New Zealand are laughing out loud at Israel for thinking we give a damn about Israel. We have protection of freedom of Speech under our Bill of Rights and a right to protest without getting tear gassed or hit with rubber bullets or live fire. Israel can go to hell. They have absolutely no jurisdiction over what we do or say and we can easily close their pissant embassy here anytime we choose. Can't see why National allowed to let it reopen in the first place.We don't want the Zionist attitude anywhere in or near NZ.

  • Israeli paper's publication of BDS ad marks beginning of society's return to sanity
    • Israel cannot return to sanity if it never had it in the first place. When it finds sanity it will be for the first time and therefore will be and introduction to sanity and not a return to it.

    • Reprisals against occupied people resisting is a war crime.... Germans were convicted for it at Nuremberg.

    • I think Catalan is unaware the Israeli's are doing enough of all that already without whinging on about Sabra Hummus which I have tried and I don't like. Had it at a friends house and have never bought it. Doesn't taste like real hummus to me. Personally I sense Catalan is in complete denial of Israeli crimes.

  • Struggle for equal rights for Palestinians is 'right choice,' and will lead to 'significant exodus of Jews' -- Henry Siegman
    • If we travel back in time to when Zionism was founded, Theodore Herzl and others decided that they could not achieve their aims in Palestine unless they purported to support and embrace Christianity and Judaism. One point being Zionists needed to increase their numbers rapidly and need the cover of religion to validate their preposterous claims on a land without a people that never ever belonged to them. Their history and connection lies in Europe.

  • Palestinian ambassador reveals details about Trump's meetings with Abbas, accuses the U.S. of 'backstabbing'
    • The reality is that at some point the complete truth about Israel is going to come out. All their War Crimes,abuses,collective punishments and assassinations,ethnic cleansing and deliberate massacres will be laid bare for the World to see. It is coming. Even today more truth is spoken about Israel's nefarious dealings than ever before. Countries that currently stand with Israel need to be aware they need to swap positions and ensure they are on the right side of history when it all comes out. America especially.Israel is going to have no show at stopping the flood of information.

  • Fearing breakup of Israel lobby, liberal Zionists stress the power of Jewish unity
    • The other side of the coin is, I suggest, that when people look for something and no matter what they turn up, fail to adequately support their quest , they end up grasping at anything until ,all around them, people cease to believe them. That is where Zionism is at right now.

  • Palestinian-American businessman, 57, is arrested by ICE in Cleveland, shocking supporters
    • The Good People of America , who number in the millions need to pressure the Pro Israel ,Pro Zionist representatives in the Political System in America and voice their assertion that the Special Relationship with Israel needs to end and Israel needs to be held accountable for its actions and a law needs passing that deletes those with Zionist and Israel connections from participating in Government affairs as they are nothing more than foreign agents sterring America away from Americas best path in the World. These Foreign Agents have destroyed America and its Status. It has become repulsive and thoroughly distasteful.

  • Ahed Tamimi should stay in prison because she might slap again -- Israeli ethicist
    • Seems to me that Israel is rapidly becoming an open air Mental Institution for the criminally insane. Israel's excuses no longer fly and they are looking crazier and crazier.

  • A private tour of the Hebron Heights winery
    • Well done Molly and Leo.....expose the Zionist Israeli's at every opportunity. BDS by upping the anti in their operations will crack Israel's back which in the interests of justice and peace needs to happen.

  • Privileged American Jews are safe thanks to 'Israel's might'-- Roger Cohen
    • Problem is it is a delusion to think Israel is a safe haven. It;s own Generals state it cannot survive a saturation missile attack and one direct hit on Dimona renders Israel kaput. It's definitely no safe haven....more a trap.

  • If you genuinely back the Palestinian cause, you must support the right of return
  • A foreign leader -- Netanyahu -- set Trump's agenda in Middle East, Michael Wolff book says
    • I'd love to see private citizens in America demand a referendum on whether the Govt should back and supply arms to Israel and give it AID money. It would be an interesting outcome I suspect.

    • Weeeeelllllllll, the book doesn't appear to tell us anymore than we already knew. That is to say, and clarify, that the United States Government is run from Israel by Benjamin Netanyahu and not from Washington by Donald Duck....er.....I mean Donald Trump.

  • Israeli prosecutors try to make Ahed Tamimi a terrorist
    • And what did mommies big tough IOF soldier do during the war against nasty Palestinians.......er....um....well mom.....I....er......I got bitch slapped by a sixteen year old girl......um......but it really hurt mom.

  • 'We have taken Jerusalem off the table' -- Trump bullies Palestinians
    • For the past few months ,Harry, I have been thinking Russia and Iran is Palestinians best option....it would put the fear of God in Netanyahu and Israel.

    • To me the sickest thing about it all is the fact all World leaders appear to place Israel undisputably in charge of any decision or indecision and leave Israel to violate International Law with total impunity, For once in their sad little lives World leaders need to grow a pair and at long last stick it to Israel with crippling sanctions until it complies. No more warships and subs from Germany and no more free passes to cross borders and visit and trade from EU States. If all these countries deem UN Membership important and its laws and charters important then it needs to defend them and protect them from abuse like upstarts called Netanyahu and Trump. If not then All should leave and close the doors of UN and let Israel have total carte blanche in running the World as that seems to be what these spineless World leaders appear to want by doing nothing.

    • Respect is a two way street. In order to get respect you need to give it first. Trump and Netanyahu have never given the Palestinians either. All Trump and Netanyahu are due at the moment is complete and utter Palestinian contempt. Trump couldn;t be a Diplomat if he tried. All he is good at is Making America Despised.

  • Ahed Tamimi has polarized western opinion -- but stirred some liberals to solidarity
    • Legally as I see it Ahed has every right to defend her home against Occupying soldiers who have no legal right to be on her land ,in her land especially when they arrive to intimidate. Ahed has the right to resist even by use of arms to fight the illegal occupation of Palestine. Trump and former US Presidents could have ended the occupation years ago simply by cutting off the MASSIVE AID PACKAGE it gives to Israel.America always claims to fight for justice and freedom....why are they complicit in aiding and abetting an illegal, apartheid ,subjugating violent occupation.Its disgusting.Trump is not transmitting the message America is Great....He is telegraphing to the World America is Shameful.

  • Shmuley Boteach's unhinged attack on Lorde will only help the movement to boycott Israel
    • Annie, here is the NZ Herald Editorial in full....it packs a wallop!!!

      http://www.nzherald.co.nz/opinion/news/article.cfm?c_id=466&objectid=11966801

    • Here we go Annie...the pushback has begun....this from Electronic Intifada

      https://electronicintifada.net/blogs/ali-abunimah/lorde-shows-why-israel-should-indeed-fear-new-zealand

    • Not sure whether she will or not but she did state quite clearly that Trump would not bully the NZ Government quite quickly . Depends how important it is to her though I doubt she'll be impressed with Boteach spreading blatant lies.

      I went to Aussie with my parents and served in the Australian Navy during the latter part of the Vietnam War and then I married a NZ woman and moved to New Zealand and I have been here nearly thirty years now.......I wouldn't swap, it for quids.

    • I'll be very interested in what Jacinda Ardern does. The people of NZ will not be happy with Boteach. Many I know here are spitting tacks at the Israeli's. Over the years I have seen IDF tourists sent home from here many times due to their behaviour so they have no friends here other than the Pro Israel Jewish Council who are very much in the minority.

    • More cognitively discordant ramblings from Mr Boteach. He is but an Inciter of the first order and to him facts don't matter. He yells out distorted perceptions that inhabit his mind and dear God I would not go inside his head without a rope attached firmly and a shotgun in my hand and two security guards for backup. The man is nutz plain and simple but damned dangerous. He forgets how defensive New Zealanders are of their people. He may have bitten of more than he can chew. Time to close the Israeli Embassy in New Zealand again and send the settler Ambassador home.

  • Jewish activist who counseled Lorde on BDS gets the full 'kapo' treatment in the Israeli press
    • The hasbarists need to post proof that individuals do not have the right to freedom of choice. Also it has been a long held belief in etiquette that it is a woman's perogative to change their mind. Zionists need a course on etiquette.

    • Of course, at this point, it is pertinent to recall the Mossad Agents NZ caught procuring false passports in NZ by stealing names from graveyards...some of babies to place on said false passports. Agents were jailed and the Israeli Embassy was closed. When our Jewish PM John Key of National Party came to power, within his first month of taking office, the Israeli Embassy was curiously and silently reopened. Had it been put to a referendum it is doubtful the people of NZ would have agreed to its reopening. We don't need Israeli Influence here.

    • Thoroughly agree Annie...Jacinda is a breath of fresh air here. Sarah Moses of NZ Jewish Council after writing the put down that she did about Lorde copped two articles slamming Moses stance and criticising her comment. It is my view that here Israel is barely toleraated and the speed that THE PEOPLE of NZ reacted to the Israeli Cosmetic sales in malls ripping people off saw the whole Israeli group responsible kicked out of NZ in a week. Down here Israel has little support.....we don't like oppressors and we value freedom.Netanyahu has no show of changing us.

    • Sachs in telling the truth has exposed the lies of Zionist Israel. Wohl and those supporting him celebrate putting others down in order to elevate themselves. No wonder Israeli's are not liked.

  • Lorde didn't bow to pressure, she rose to the occasion
  • Why liberal Zionists have nothing to say about Ahed Tamimi's slap and arrest
    • This is a better link to the same article at JPost with a video of Netanyahu making the speech....Times of Israel has edited his statements for the main part from their article....funny that, sorry about spelling errors in above post...i am rushing to catch these things before they censor them........http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/WATCH-Netanyahu-wishes-Iranians-success-in-noble-quest-for-freedom-522557

    • Ossinev...I agree with you.....look around the Middle East in places like Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and you'll find Israel. encouraged and incited the revolts and armed fed and clothed the rebels. We now have Netanyahu on Times of Israel congratulating and encouraging the protesters in Iran saying seeing the beatings of protestors is despicable and that he won't stay quiet. I 'll find the link and posty it here....ity is phenominally hypocritical given IDF behaviour.

    • Israeli Zionists and their supporters do more harm to themselves and drag America down with them by allowing posts like this in American media outlets......seems the Zionists are losing the plot and running scared.......Jewish Zionist commando's.

    • Yes Eljay, the disturbing thing for me is since 2008 I have watched with revulsion at Israel behaving more and more like its former abusers and it makes for a serious problem for the Global stability and politics. These Jewish Supremacists have infiltrated many countries around the World and to me it is a strategic action by Israel to manipulate and transform Foreign Governments to do their bidding or to take no actions against Israel so it can continue its ethnic cleansing and other crimes with impunity.

  • Writing about what should be done to girls in the dark is incitement to sexual assault -- Shany Littman to Ben Caspit
    • Caspit exposes the fact he has no masculinity and operates in a childish spiteful manner. Rape is Rape no matter who does it. True males have no need to force women to have sex thus denigrating the women and themselves. Human beings acting healthily control their emotions and cravings. Taking charge of oneself when engaging with others is a sign of maturity and proves we are in fact above animals.

  • Israeli journalist who called for unspeakable acts against Ahed Tamimi tries, and fails, to backpedal
  • Pop star 'Lorde' honors BDS call, cancels Tel Aviv concert
    • only losers play the blame game Mayhem and Israel have played the blame game for seven decades....nothing is ever their fault....what's wrong with their picture they paint? Israeli's....Zionist from Europe largely, invaded Palestine.

    • Update from New Zealand Press.....Stuff.co.nz.

      Israel's ambassador to New Zealand hopes to convince Lorde to change her mind during a "friendly meeting on Israel".

      Speaking from Wellington, Itzhak Gerberg said he sent out an invitation on Twitter to the 21-year-old Kiwi singer, but was yet to hear anything back.

      Gerberg said she was encouraging "animosity in the region" by "succumbing to the hateful agenda" of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement.

    • Sarah Moses had this to say.......As with New Zealand and every other state, Israel has events in its past of which it should feel ashamed, and it is by no means perfect. But accusing Israel of apartheid, a term that rightly evokes revulsion, is nothing more than slanderous sloganeering that casts a slur on many millions of Jews (and others) around the world who support Israel and says more about the feelings of the person propagating it than the facts.......from the link above

  • A Christmas letter to Nikki Haley
    • Neither Trump nor Haley care a jot about the rule of law....they care about what the Zionist Shekel pays them to care about.

  • The never-ending crisis of Zionism
    • Maybe the Palestinians would not be so bloody minded if the Israeli's were not stealing their land and possessions and bulldozing their houses and denying them water etc etc. Walk a mile in their shoes Mayhem and I dare say you would be bloody minded also. There is no legitmacy to what Israel is doing and absolutely no defence. It has everything to do with Zionism because it was Zionists like Herzl and Jabotinsky that created the Grand Plan of Greater Israel and ethnically cleansing Palestine for Israeli Jews exclusive use.

    • If Americans want to feel safe and regain their credibility and status globally then the only choice they have is to jettison the Criminal State of Israel. Israel these days is seen as committing war crimes on a daily basis, ignores ALL international laws and inflicts on Palestinians behavior that they themselves complained of during the holocaust. Israel lies and deceives and manipulates Americans like puppets and uses them for their own nefarious needs. Americans if they wish to be seen as humane and honest and part of the International Community needs to reject Israel and cease aiding and abetting it in committing its war crimes. To do otherwise will se America ostracized by the global community....something I do not want to see and something Americans need to seriously ponder on. America needs cleansing of the Israeli Lobby influence that holds its government hostage to Netanyahu and his unscrupulous cohorts.
