  • Israeli government minister justifies Gaza massacre by calling Palestinians 'Nazis'
    • DB, does your comment mean that you're criticizing the propaganda minister for calling the unarmed protesters being shot by snipers 'Nazis' ?

      Is Israel's murder of 1400 civilians, including 500 children, in Gaza "Nazi shit' ? Should the IDF murderers be forced to carry those childrens' bodies to their graves?

  • 'My aim is not to resolve the conflict' -- former top Israeli negotiator
    • "We must define our position and lay down basic principles for a settlement. Our demands should be moderate and balanced, and appear to be reasonable. But in fact they must involve such conditions as to ensure that the enemy rejects them. Then we should manoeuvre and allow him to define his own position, and reject a settlement on the basis of a compromise position. We should then publish his demands as embodying unreasonable extremism". - General Yehoshafat Harkabi, Former Israeli Chief of Military Intelligence

  • 'New York Times' picks up Bernie Sanders's 'socialist' kibbutz but leaves out the ethnic cleansing
    • a better definition?

      Ethnic cleansing is the systematic removal of ethnic or religious groups from a given territory with the intent of increasing the dominance of the removing group. The forces applied may be military or paramilitary violence, forced migration, intimidation, and social or economic pressures designed to accomplish this goal

      (Ethnic cleansing is usually accompanied with the efforts to remove physical and cultural evidence of the targeted group in the territory through the destruction of homes, social centers, farms, and infrastructure, and by the desecration of monuments, cemeteries, and places of worship.)
