  • Falsely accusing Palestinians of anti-Semitism is malicious
    • Rabbi Jill Jacobs obviously is a true Zionist! The true Semites living in what little remains of Palestine and Zionist Israel are the Palestinians. The vast majority of Israelis are immigrant European/U.S. Zionists, either supporting or complicit in Zionist Israel's brutality, racism, ethnic cleansing, land theft, fascism and terrorism in what little remains of Palestine!

  • 'America crossed every red line': Palestinians in Jerusalem protest new US embassy
  • By wrecking Iran deal, Trump politicized Israel
    • " . . yesterday was one of the most depressing days"? I much prefer "yesterday was one of the most disgusting and outrageous days"!

      "Democrats will have to take on Israel and the lobby"? REALLY! And forego all of those $$$millions Israel continues to stuff in their campaign coffers? Please, let's not dare to hold our breaths for this to happen!

      " . . the politics are now so envenomed"? How about "the politics are now so poisoned," Phil.

      Also not mentioned in this piece is Saudi Arabia's role in this blatantly insane violation of Iran's no-nukes agreement, with the Saudis now joined at the hip with madman Netanyahu--and, of course, with madman Trump as well!

  • The 'fake news' story is fake news
    • " Yes, as we assert here all the time, the mainstream US media is in the tank for Israel . ." Why, Phil, do you give such short shrift to this issue so important to creating stability to the ever worsening state of Palestine/Israel and the entire Middle East? Surely this could be described as a crucial issue for the entire world. Moreover, in addition to the human rights catastrophe "nurtured" by Israel, there is yet another huge "elephant in the room": Israel's nuclear arms stockpile of upwards of 200 hydrogen, neutron and atomic warheads amassed over the past 30 years and deliverable by Israel's air, missile and sea forces. Yet, Israel has refused to publicly admit the existence of these nuclear weapons and has refused to sign on to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty observed by the world's responsible nuclear powers. Israel, therefore, provides the "news media" with a quintessential example of abject hypocrisy. Can this be relegated to "fake news"? Or are "news media", as well as the U.S. government and its "allies" complicit in maintaining a veritable news blackout on this potentially enormous threat to world stability and peace, especially since Israel is so determined in its efforts to kill the Iran no-nuke agreement? Perhaps "news blackouts" could be the subject of a second piece by Mondoweiss; and this, of course, could include the "news blackout" observed by major "news media" regarding Israel's daily, countless human rights violations in what little remains of Palestine for the past 50 years. Something to ponder, Phil?

  • Netanyahu's cheap theatrics fall flat, but alas, he has an audience of one -- Trump
    • And here we have this evil excuse for humanity who can’t help himself as a galactic liar apparently shoving aside the fact that the world knows about his "SECRET" NUCLEAR STOCKPILE--upwards of 200 hydrogen, neutron, and atomic warheads amassed over the last 30 years and in violation of international law! Moreover, the whole world knows full well that Israel has continued to refuse to sign on to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, along with other responsible nuclear powers, for the past 30 years. Nonetheless, this madman is perpetuating this quintessential HYPOCRISY, while Iran continues to abide by its non-nuke agreement verifiable by international inspection and is a signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, making absolute fools of Zionist Israelis and proving that they are galactic liars. And you wonder why the rest of the world sees Israel for what it really is: a brutal, racist, genocidal, ethnic cleansing, land stealing, fascist, terrorist Zionist regime headed by pathological liar Benjamin Netanyahu! The world is on to your "game", Zionist Israel--and the clock is ticking!

  • Adi Shosberger called Israeli soldiers ‘terrorists’ -- and Israel has turned on her
    • Attacks against Adi expose and confirm the true "colors" of Zionism: brutal, ruthless, racist, genocidal, ethnic cleansing, fascism and terrorism--the quintessential opposite of Judaism, evil versus good! And, yes, madman Netanyahu's assassin snipers are, indeed, Zionist TERRORISTS!

  • Lieberman, commander of Gaza snipers, arrives in D.C. to take on Iran Deal
  • Israeli gunshots are causing 'unusually severe damage' to legs, exit wounds as big as a fist -- human rights group
    • Mondoweiss, please, let's expose the outlawed exploding bullets that are Zionist Israel's racist, fascist, terrorist assassin snipers' "tool" for murdering and maiming Palestinians in Gaza's Great March of Return!

  • Yousef al-Kurnz lost a leg covering Gaza's Great Return March but is not giving up his dream of becoming a photojournalist
  • IfNotNow ups pressure on Schumer to end silence on Israeli killings of unarmed protesters
  • Jews and trauma
    • That's what I don't like about you Zionists, Steve, you're extraordinary, exceptional, when it comes to projecting your guilt, your abject denial and your cognitive dissonance onto someone else. Moreover, all of you Zionists claim to practice Judaism when the world knows all too well that you don't. The world now knows that you Zionists have tragically and ironically adopted many of the very same "tactics" used by Nazi Germany to execute the Holocaust: brutality, ruthlessness, racism, genocide, ethnic cleansing, land theft, fascism and terrorism in your "treatment" of your "neighbors", yes, your "neighbors" in Palestine. Yet you wrap yourselves in the star of David and claim to be the "victims" of "terrorism" as you continue to murder, maim, torture, and unjustly imprison Palestinians and steal whatever you wish at gunpoint from the Palestinians. I have some news for you, Steve, your ugly, evil, fascist charade is coming to an end and may the God of us all--and that includes you--have mercy on the lot of you!

    • " Jews have to sort out our trauma. We need pressure from others, and some kindness; but the kids need to take control and work this out with the parents and grandparents, and soon. We owe that to the world."

      Indeed, Phil! But it is so tragically sad that Zionists and Zionist sympathizers (Jewish and non-Jewish) have chosen to resort to far too many of the very same "tactics" used by the Nazis: brutality, racism, genocide, ethnic cleansing, land theft, fascism and, YES, terrorism. This hideous reaction to the Holocaust of the 1930s and 40s , in effect, created a "slow-motion holocaust" for Palestine and its people, psyhchologically plunging Zionist and Zionist sympathizers into abject denial and cognitive dissonance for the past 60 years.

      As a "gentile" (yes, in lower case), I truly hope and pray that the ongoing "Great March of Return" in Gaza will serve as a powerful catalyst in finally breaking through to Zionist Israel and its "leaders" that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! It is far past high time for Zionist Jews and Zionist sympathizers to truly begin practicing Judaism and to accept Palestinians as fellow human beings who have every right to their FREEDOM, JUSTICE AND EQUALITY!

  • 'NY Times' bias about Israel's massacre in Gaza just won't go away
    • Phil Weiss, you need to submit this to the NYTimes as an op-ed. Will it be published? Obviously not, but someone at the Times will at least have read it.

      A more descriptive headline for this piece? "New York Times doesn’t give up on its defense of indefensible Israel"

      Nonetheless, my compliments to Mondoweiss for its strengthening opposition to fascist racist Zionist Israel with their pieces yesterday:

      Seven things you need to know about Israel’s latest attack on Gaza
      http://mondoweiss.net/2018/04/things-israels-latest/

      Israel just lost American Jews
      http://mondoweiss.net/2018/04/israel-just-american/

      I gave these pieces broad distribution on both Facebook and Twitter, and especially to the Israeli trolls at the New York Times, including its new publisher, A.G. Sulzberger, son of Arthur O. Sulzberger, Jr. recently retired as publisher. Footnote: A.G. is every bit as bad as his father was in defending the indefensible brutal, racist, genocidal, ethnic cleansing, land-stealing, fascist, terrorist Zionist Israel!

  • Israel just lost American Jews
    • So can anyone, other than the New York Times, Zionist Israel and its "sympathizers" across the globe, take issue with my often used descriptions of "brutal, ruthless, racist, genocidal, ethnic cleansing, land-stealing, fascist, terrorist, Zionist" Israel? I await your response!

  • Jewish state, Jewish values, Jewish shame
    • HEAR! HEAR!

    • Thank you, Robert! Very well stated.

    • To what "extent" do you share Robert's feeling of "shame", Stephen? If your Zionist Israel uses harsh and sometimes brutal collective punishment of Palestinians, why can't you accept and join in collective shame over your Zionist "soldier" assassin snipers who murdered 18 unarmed Palestinian protesters and shot and wounded at least 750 more? Is the very thought of these hideous and murderous acts too much for you, sending you "to some extent" into abject denial and cognitive dissonance? It certainly would see so.

  • Videos of Palestinians shot walking, running and praying appear on social media, but US cables keep mum
    • Why are both print and broadcast major media in the West silent on Israeli atrocities? The fear of being labeled "anti-Semitic"--that's what it's all about! And this invariably is the accusation leveled by Zionists at any legitimate and warranted criticism of Zionist Israel. Consequently, the Israeli Zionists get a free pass on massacre, murder, genocide, ethnic cleansing, brutality and land theft whenever it involves Palestine and its people.

    • OMG! John O, individuals like yourself are the cause Palestinian suffering for so many decades. You and far too many Zionists/Zionist sympathizers suffer from abject denial and cognitive dissonance, leading you to accept the racism, brutality, genocide, ethnic cleansing and land theft imposed by Zionist Israel on its NEIGHBORS, the Palestinians. And so it goes.

  • Jeremy Corbyn and ’anti-Semitism’ - making sense of the hysteria
    • HEAR! HEAR!

    • Your "conservative Jews", Jonathan Ofir , are better known as Zionists and Zionist sympathizers who, for more than 50 years, have been about stealing at gunpoint whatever Palestinian lands they favored, as well as establishing a racist, genocidal, ethnic cleansing "culture" in both Israel and in what little remains of Palestine. Moreover these Zionists and Zionist sympathizers are quick to label "anti-Semitic anyone who dares to criticize them and their Zionist Israel for legitimate cause; and, in the case of Jeremy Corbyn, he dared to endorse boycotting of Zionist israel's illegal colonies established on stolen Palestinian lands and supports freedom, justice and equality for the Palestinians. So, please, Jonathan, let's deal with reality.

  • Video: Israeli police destroy Palestinian tombstones in Jerusalem cemetery
    • And these accursed brutal, racist, fascist, terrorist Zionists claim to be "practitioners of Judaism"! Where are our voices, true practitioners of Judaism? WHERE ARE YOUR VOICES TO CONDEMN THESE ACCURSED ZIONISTS!

  • War-loving, Muslim-hating John Bolton wants to give 'pieces' of Palestine to Jordan and Egypt
  • Memo to 'NYTimes:' Go to Ahed Tamimi's village in Palestine and report the truth
    • Thank you, Abu Yusef, a million times over for stating what the Mondoweiss' and JVPs should be shouting every single day, until those practicing true Judaism worldwide cease their evil-begetting silence, rise up, and demand FREEDOM, JUSTICE and EQUALITY for the Palestinians who, for the past six decades, have suffered brutality, racism, genocide, ethnic cleansing, land theft, fascism and terrorism at the hands of the accursed Zionist regime ruling both Palestine and Israel! So, Phil Weiss and Adam Horowitz, let's hear that SHOUT OUT every day about the abject failure of main stream media, especially the New York Times, to accurately report on the daily, incessant Zionist atrocities in Palestine!

  • Video: Israeli forces attack Palestinian medics aiding injured youth
    • A much-needed weekly in-depth "catch-all" in news of Zionist Israel's atrocities gathered by Mondoweiss's "Kate" (doesn't she have a last name, Phil?), but why would you not run this collection of news on a Friday, when a larger number of readers visit your site?

      As for the Zionist military thugs attacking Palestinian protesters and medics alike, yet another example of the repeated daily brutal, ruthless, racist, fascist, terrorist atrocities perpetrated against Palestinians by the accursed Zionist regime controlling both Palestine and Israel!

  • 'Someone is paying Trump to do it' -- Pompeo elevation shows neoconservative lock on foreign policy
    • Phil, unintentional I am hoping, but your headline and lead for this piece obscure the facts. A far more accurate headline and lead:

      Israel further solidifies its lock to kill the Iran deal--with Pompeo as Secretary of State!

      N'est pas?

  • American Jews need Israel to be safe -- megadonor Paul Singer
    • HEAR! HEAR!

    • No, no, no, Singer presumably would expect Zionist Israel to continue its criminal theft of what remains of Palestine, including all of East Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza. After all, Zionists do believe that "the end justifies the means"! Right?

    • Je suis Palestina! Je suis Gaza! Toujours Toi!

  • The European Union must act to end its complicity with illegal Israeli settlements
    • "The European Union must act to end its complicity with illegal Israeli settlements"

      A far more accurate headline for this piece:

      The European Union must act to end its complicity in Israel's continuing land theft in Palestine

  • Gideon Levy on Israeli denial: 'Anyone who raises a question is demolished'
    • Kudos to Phil Weiss and Mondoweiss for posting Gideon Levy as he speaks truth of the brutal, ruthless, racist, genocidal, ethnic cleansing, land-stealing, fascist, terrorist Zionist regime ruling both Palestine and Israel! But, Phil, you need to post this on every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday on Mondoweiss. As you know, readership is far less on Saturday and Sunday. Gideon Levy is the only vocal and published champion of TRUTH, FREEDOM, JUSTICE and EQUALITY in all of Zionist-controlled Israel; and I marvel over how he has managed to remain alive in the midst of so many accursed, brutal, ruthless, racist, fascist, murderous and terrorist Zionists. Watch your back, Gideon! Please, please, watch your back!

  • One State Foundation launches today
    • Thank you, echinococcus. Very well said. Thank you for bring clarity to this protracted discussion regarding the Zionist regime in control of both Palestine and Israel. Cheers!

    • “ . . a breaking of the evil-begetting silence of those in Israel and around the world who do believe in Judaism: “What is hateful to you, do not to your fellowmen. That is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary.” Talmud, Shabbat 31:a”. No, Zaisser, I do not, as you wrongly attributed to me, “think this is the only solution,” but I do think that it would be an excellent start.

      And then you go on to ask:

      “HOW is this going to happen, and what are YOU doing to help make it happen. I myself certainly regularly confront people (to the point that it has cost me relationships even with my siblilngs) by putting challenging historical information in front of American Jews . .”

      Let me be the first, Zaisser, to congratulate you for breaking your silence, while at the same time assuring you that I too, even as a “Gentile” and in spite of your obvious doubts, am spreading and voicing the truth regarding Zionism daily, on the internet, in letters to editors, shaming the New York Times and other media for their perpetual, transparent defense of indefensible Zionist Israel, and sharing this truth by word of mouth. I must point out, however, that I have been accused of anti-Semitism. But, as I am sure you know all too well, this label is most often used as the “defense” and smear offered by Zionists in the face of any criticism whatsoever. I am curious to know whether you have ever been called an anti-Semite.

      Ending your March 9 comment with, “It seems to me the two sides are deadlocked either way, and I’d rather have a constitutional structure in place than an unchecked apartheid in place,” permit me to remind you that Zionists want no part of a “constitution”, or they would have drafted and enacted one over the past 60 years. No, the accursed Zionists are bound and determined to remain as they are: brutal, ruthless, racist, genocidal, ethnic cleansing, fascist and terrorist to their “neighbors”, the Palestinians. And, by the way, Zaisser, you mis-quoted me in stating to me, “you throw a guesstimated number of Palestinian deaths that would happen in the wake of a sovereign one-state nation of Israelis and Palestinians.” It was a question to Ossinev on March 4: “Could the price/cost be one, 100, 1,000, 100,000, or more Palestinian lives snuffed out by the uniformed Zionist thugs before Palestinians can finally enjoy freedom, justice and equality in what was their homeland to begin with?”

      I will end this response with what I stated would be an excellent start to a “solution”: “. . and Zionists and Zionist sympathizers cringe at the thought of it: a breaking of the evil-begetting silence of those in Israel and around the world who do believe in Judaism: “What is hateful to you, do not to your fellowmen. That is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary.” Talmud, Shabbat 31:a."

    • Thank you, Mooser, and I would invite you to read what Zionist madman Benjamin Netanyahu proclaims is the future of the Palestinians:

      Netanyahu: Even in peace, the occupation will never end
      https://972mag.com/netanyahu-even-in-peace-the-occupation-will-never-end/133670/

    • A footnote to my previous comment:
      Mondoweiss and some other media do publish "show and tell" stories about some, but not all, of the daily horrors perpetrated by Zionist Israel in defenseless Palestine, when there is a dire and increasing need for repetitive editorials and statements of conviction and condemnation of Israel's Zionist rule of Palestine.

    • “[D]epravity”, Zaisser? Oh, please, let’s be far more specific and less charitable to describing the 50-year Zionist regime rule of Palestine: brutal, racist, genocidal, ethnic cleansing, land-stealing, fascist and terrorist.

      And, yes, echinococcus, I do have an answer—and Zionists and Zionist sympathizers cringe at the thought of it: a breaking of the evil-begetting silence of those in Israel and around the world who do believe in Judaism: "What is hateful to you, do not to your fellowmen. That is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary." Talmud, Shabbat 31:a

      Just as Christians believe: "All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them." Matthew 7:12.

      And just as Muslims believe: Islam: "No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself." Sunnah

      Reaching back to Nazi Germany in the 1930s, Zaisser, the very same “depravity” existed until humankind rose up to crush the brutal, racist, genocidal, ethnic cleansing, land-stealing, fascist and terrorist “Third Reich”.

      The bottom line question: is there courage enough, or will there ever be courage enough, among those practicing true Judaism, within Israel and around the world, to rise up and rid Israel of the Zionist scourge and restore freedom, justice and equality to the Palestinians? My response at this time: “The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind, the answer is blowin’ in the wind”!

    • So, Ossinev, what, IYHO, would be the acceptable price, or cost, for overcoming "apartheid"--hard-nozed racism backed with armed might--in Zionist Israel, which deceptively claims to be a "democracy" when it is a brutal, racist, genocidal, ethnic cleansing, land-stealing, fascist, terrorist, theocratic regime? Could the price/cost be one, 100, 1,000, 100,000, or more Palestinian lives snuffed out by the uniformed Zionist thugs before Palestinians can finally enjoy freedom, justice and equality in what was their homeland to begin with? And should we forget about the 4-million or more Palestinian refugees driven out of their homeland by the Zionists over the past 60 years? Should we also expect Zionist Israelis to, out of the "goodness" of their hearts, allow the diaspora Palestinians to return to their homeland, to their homes and land stolen at gunpoint by the Zionists? Yet a few things to consider: n'est pas?

    • "Worthy" is the key word, MHughes976. Please give further thought and consideration to the horrific history of the Zionist onslaught in Palestine over the past 60 years, along with thought and consideration of the Zionist "mandate" for a one-state Israel to be a theocracy incapable in itself of ever becoming a democracy.

    • backed up for two days? Really, Robbin? Well then permit me to offer my services as a "backstop editor" for you. Eager to help in any way. Cheers!

    • Comforting, no less.

    • Thank you, echinococcus. It is refreshing to see your statement of reality!

    • I noticed that you have left my posted comment hanging under "Your comment is awaiting moderation". No matter. But I still wonder how Mondoweiss can be so "accepting" of a so-called "one state solution" when Zionist attacks, middle-of-the-night-Gestopo-type home raids and jailings (without charge) are on the increase now, with the obvious sanction of madman Donald Trump. Madman Netanyahu's Zionist "soldier" thugs continue their nightly rampages through Palestinian neighborhoods and homes. Does Mondoweiss really believe that all of this will change with a "one state solution"? Wishful thinking, at best, especially in the face of examples like this:
      Video: Israeli forces shoot, beat Palestinian before his death
      https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/03/video-israeli-forces-shoot-beat-palestinian-death-180303073840613.html

      So, Phil and Adam, must the Palestinians and we, the people who demand freedom, justice and equality for the Palestinians, must we be content with the fantasy wishful thinking that there can ever be freedom, justice and equality for the Palestinians at the hands of Benjamin Netanyahu and his millions of brutal, racist, fascist, terrorist Zionist thugs? What say you?

    • The Nazis came up with a "final solution" and so now Zionist Israel comes up with its's "final solution"--to steal by force and gunpoint what is left of Palestine, the nation state stolen by the Zionists over the past 60 years. Moreover, for anyone to believe that Zionists will ever treat their neighbors, the palestinians, as human beings is dreaming! The Zionists have spent 60 years depriving Palestinians, with brutal racist force, all freedom, justice and equality by dehumanizing and demonizing them all! The "one-state solution" is yet another transparent ploy, another page out of the Josef Goebbels propaganda playbook! And Mondoweiss is swallowing it and regurgitating it all!

  • California Democrats buck national party-- opposing bills to penalize boycotts of Israel
    • Mondoweiss: It would have been much more accurate for the headline to read:

      California Democrats buck national party– opposing bills to CRIMINALIZE boycotts of Israel

  • Iran wants to annihilate 6 million Jews -- Netanyahu's Munich rant, interrupted
    • Yet again, the Middle East's fascist, racist, foaming-at-the-mouth madman spews his galactic hypocrisy, when the whole world knows that rogue "nation" Zionist Israel has amassed over the past 30 years a nuclear arsenal upwards of 200 hydrogen, neutron and atomic warheads; and continues to refused to sign on to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty! So much for "democracy"!

  • In propaganda coup for Israel, NYT frontpager ascribes Gaza's misery to Palestinian infighting
    • kudos to Mondoweiss for calling out the New York Times for this lie-ridden piece containing totally false contexts! Arthur O. Sulzberger, Jr.'s editorial board today added outrageous insult to journalistic integrity and the very fundamental basics in truth about Zionist Israel and its horrific terrorist treatment of Palestine and it s people.!

  • Thomas Friedman justifies slaughter of Arab civilians by 'crazy' Israel
    • Phil, this would have been great submission to the New York Times as a guest column, or boil it down to a letter to the edtitor. Opportunity missed is opportunity missed.

  • How to win the battle for freedom, justice, and equality
    • Unless and until all people around the world who truly practice Judaism—not Zionism—break their silence and join together in educating and leading the world to condemn, instead of defending indefensible Zionist Israel, nothing, absolutely nothing, will change for the Palestinians. And, yes, there would be much bloodshed in Palestine at the hands of the Zionists.
      So, do talk of a “struggle” for Palestinians to win their freedom, justice and equality. But, justly, and in reality, it should be a “struggle” between Judaism and Zionism—and with bloodshed if need be!
      So let’s get on with bringing freedom, justice and equality to what little remains of Palestine and its people by strongly advocating a “struggle” between righteous Judaism and fascist Zionism!

  • 'NYT' praises Israelis for restraint in attacks aimed at Arafat that killed 100s of innocents
    • Hey Phil: An interesting and much needed piece critical of the New York Times, a major publication that spends a great deal of effort in defending indefensible Zionist Israel in addition to blacking out news of any of the countless daily human/civil rights violations perpetrated and executed by Zionist Israel and its military forces in Palestine and Zionist Israel against Palestinians.

      My question: does Mondoweiss forward these type pieces deservedly critical of Zionist Israel to the New York Times publisher, executive editor, foreign desk and the Times bureau chief in Jerusalem and, if not, why not? Looking forward to your response.

  • Struggle for equal rights for Palestinians is 'right choice,' and will lead to 'significant exodus of Jews' -- Henry Siegman
    • A response from Jim Michie to Annie Robbins:
      I had hoped, Annie, that our exchange of views would not resort to name-calling, but I think I can at least begin to appreciate the frustration endured by you, Phil and others at Mondoweiss, true practitioners of Judaism: "What is hateful to you, do not to your fellowmen. That is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary." Talmud, Shabbat 31:a.—especially since Israel, with the iron-clad support and “blessing” of the ugly old USA, continues to operate as an ugly fascist rogue state.
      My point is direct and very simple, Annie: unless and until all people around the world who truly practice Judaism—not Zionism—break their silence and join together in educating and leading the world to condemn, instead of defending indefensible Zionist Israel, nothing, absolutely nothing, will change for the Palestinians. And, yes, there would be much bloodshed in Palestine at the hands of the Zionists.
      So, do talk of a “struggle” for Palestinians to win their freedom, justice and equality. But, justly, and in reality, it should be a “struggle” between Judaism and Zionism—and with bloodshed if need be!
