  • Gilad Atzmon’s attack against me – the 'merchant of JVP'
  • UN agency labels Israel 'apartheid regime'-- and Israel likens organization to Nazis
    • Orwell cherished freedom and repudiated state apparatuses that crushed individuals. He detested anti-Semitism. In today’s perverse politics, despite his economics, Orwell would recoil from the far left’s totalitarianism, Islamist terrorist fellow traveling, and doublethink which leads purported progressives to justify fascistic, sexist, homophobic, anti-democratic Hamas, in its self-destructive, nihilistic offensive against Israel.

    • That's all for now folks....

    • A United Nations affiliate removed a report accusing Israel of apartheid from the internet following a request from the secretary-general of the international body.
      Antonio Guterres asked the U.N. Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia, or EWCWA, to remove the report, which was published Wednesday and says it “establishes, on the basis of scholarly inquiry and overwhelming evidence, that Israel is guilty of the crime of apartheid,” Reuters reported Friday.

    • The 1975 United Nations General Assembly resolution that stated “Zionism is Racism” was retracted in 1991 with 111 nations voting in favor of its repeal.

    • Frederik Willem de Klerk, the former president of South Africa who negotiated to end his country’s apartheid regime, said that it was wrong to refer to Israel as an apartheid state.

    • Head of U.N.’s ESCWA resigns over report on ‘apartheid’ Israel / Reuters : http://www.reuters.com/article/us-un-israel-report-resignation-idUSKBN16O24X?il=0 The head of the United Nation's West Asia commission resigned on Friday, after what she described as pressure from the secretary general to withdraw a report accusing Israel of imposing an "apartheid regime" on Palestinians.

    • There is absolutely nothing equivalent to Apartheid in the dispute that rages between the Palestinians and Israel today. Within Israel itself, Arabs and Jews share the same shopping malls, benches, hospitals, theatres and, in many cases, suburbs. The educational institutions do not have a deliberately “dumbed down” Arab curriculum and the privilege of voting is given to all. The Israeli Knesset has Arab members of parliament, and Jews, Arabs and Palestinians often work together at construction sites, businesses, hotels and elsewhere. Most important of all is the fact that Israel is a democratic state. Though not a perfect one, it does have democratic institutions and it is definitely not governed by a totalitarian minority!

      It is quite astonishing to witness how a lie told often enough can eventually be accepted as truth! Most of these people have no knowledge of the “inner workings” of the Apartheid regime and couldn’t even tell you the basic facts about it. It is just a very powerful weapon to use when discharging their hatred of Israel.

    • The suspect, a 36-year-old man from Kosovo, was detained in Düsseldorf following a brief manhunt, senior police official Dietmar Kneip said at a press conference on Friday.
      Nine people were wounded when the man allegedly began lashing out at train passengers with an ax on Thursday night.http://www.dw.com/en/alleged-düsseldorf-ax-attacker-apparently-mentally-ill/a-37877626
      "He said in a first interview that he was trying to get police to shoot him," Kneip said. "We call it 'suicide by cop'."

    • 80-year-old attacked with machete hours after nearby train attack http://nypost.com/2017/03/10/80-year-old-attacked-with-machete-hours-after-nearby-train-attack/
      A machete-wielding lunatic attacked an 80-year-old man in Dusseldorf on Friday — only hours after a different madman injured nine people with an ax during a rampage at the German city’s railroad station.
      Nine people were injured when a man identified as Fatmir H., a 36-year-old from Kosovo who lives in Wuppertal in Germany, jumped off a train and carried out his random attack, the Mirror reported.
      The attack raised fears that terrorism had returned to Germany, less than three months after a truck killed 12 people when it plowed into a Christmas market in Berlin in an attack claimed by ISIS.
      In addition, five people were wounded in an ax attack on a train near Wuerzburg and 15 were injured in a bombing in Ansbach, both in the southern state of Bavaria. Both attackers were killed n last summer’s attacks, which were claimed by ISIS. And an 18-year-old German-Iranian fatally shot nine people and injured 21 others in a Munich shopping center in July. The killer, who also died, had been undergoing psychiatric treatment.

    • Hamburg ‘tear gas attack’ on packed train http://www.news.com.au/world/europe/hamburg-tear-gas-attack-on-packed-train/news-story/9440faf5411c8cafb4b6648a442d18b8
      It comes after yesterday a man from the former Yugoslavia went on a rampage with an axe at Dusseldorf station injuring seven people. He was arrested by police after trying to flee by jumping down an overpass.

    • Two arrested after Germany shuts down shopping mall over fears of terrorist attack
      http://www.dw.com/en/two-arrested-after-germany-shuts-down-shopping-mall-over-fears-of-terrorist-attack/a-37906145
      Germany remains on edge following a series of attacks over the past year, including when a failed Tunisian asylum seeker drove a truck into a Berlin Christmas market in December, killing 12 people.
      Last July, a German-Iranian man, who police say was obsessed with mass murderers, shot dead nine people at a Munich shopping mall before turning the gun on himself.
      The "Islamic State" (IS) armed group has claimed responsibility for attacks in Germany in the past year, including the murder of a teen in Hamburg, a suicide bombing in Ansbach and an ax rampage on a train in Würzburg that injured five.

    • OK now let's start on Apartheid...Marion you do the first draft.

    • You published your article too quickly Hanna.

    • Balfour Declaration:
      "His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people."

      Article 2 San Remo Convention:
      “The Mandatory shall be responsible for placing the country under such political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the establishment of the Jewish national home”

    • Talknic: The Treaty of Lausanne stated that the status of territories not named in the treaty must be agreed upon by the parties concerned. Of course Israel did not sign it. Israel did not exist then. Nor did Palestine, except as a Mandate. But Great Britain signed it and they bound themselves to try to get the concerned parties into agreement. So blame them. Israel was agreeable but the Palestinian Arabs were not. So no deal. The Palestinians attacked Israel with the Arab armies behind them and lost. The Jordanian Arabs did not want the green lines to be a boundary so there wrote that into the armistice agreement and signed it. Israel acted defensively and so they gained sovereignty over the 22%. The Arabs tried again in 1967 and lost even more territory. So there still needs to be agreement between both sides and we agree on that. Let's have lunch as soon as I get back from Damascus.

    • The Treaty of Lausanne said specifically that and deal must be worked out by the parties concerned. And that is still going on.

      Article 16 of the Treaty of Lausanne
      “Turkey hereby renounces all rights and title whatsoever over or respecting the territories situated outside the frontiers laid down in the present Treaty and the islands other than those over which her sovereignty is recognised by the said Treaty, the future of these territories and islands being settled or to be settled by the parties concerned.”

    • The president of the United States of America Barak Obama said publicly:

      “I have directed my Administration to strongly oppose boycotts, divestment campaigns, and sanctions targeting the State of Israel,” President Obama said in a statement following the signing ceremony in the Oval Office. “As long as I am President, we will continue to do so.”

    • They vote in all the Palestinian elections. They elected Abbas and local leaders.

      You want them to vote also in the Israeli elections?

    • The Arabs rejected the Partition Plan. The want a one state solution through Jihad. Nothing less.

    • Israel's declaration of Independence made no mention of its borders.

      The borders were determined by the Mandate for Palestine. After Trans Jordan was separated from the Mandate the area between the river and the sea remained. The Balfour Declaration,
      the Sam Remo Agreements and the treaty of Lausanne all confirmed that Palestine was to be a homeland for the Jewish People. The Partition plan was just a plan. It never came into existence because it was rejected by the Arabs.

    • Talknic is that the name your mother gave you? You sound Russian. Am I right?
      I am Russian and will be glad to meet you face to face anywhere in the world.

    • The “occupied territory of the West Bank” is not occupied. [...]

    • "how can we not win?" a blah chick. like this......

      A motion put forth by McGill University students who support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement has failed. -CTV News

      In a statement published to McGill’s website, Principal and Vice-Chancellor Suzanne Fortier explained why the university’s administration “steadfastly” opposes the BDS movement.
      “The BDS movement, which among other things, calls for universities to cut ties with Israeli universities, flies in the face of the tolerance and respect we cherish as values fundamental to a university. It proposes actions that are contrary to the principles of academic freedom, equity, inclusiveness and the exchange of views and ideas in responsible, open discourse. -CTV

    • Thanks. You guys sharpen up my arguments. Hey this is a great site.

    • Jihadis in France loose their citizenship and get deported.

    • On Feb. 24, when Obama signed into law the TPA and customs enforcement guidelines, he said his administration opposes the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

    • BDS is defeated dear облачко

    • Balfour Declaration:
      "His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people."

      Article 2 San Remo Convention:
      “The Mandatory shall be responsible for placing the country under such political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the establishment of the Jewish national home”

      Article 16 of the Treaty of Lausanne
      “Turkey hereby renounces all rights and title whatsoever over or respecting the territories situated outside the frontiers laid down in the present Treaty and the islands other than those over which her sovereignty is recognised by the said Treaty, the future of these territories and islands being settled or to be settled by the parties concerned.”

      (The Arabs have rejected every peace plan, they want the disputed territories to be Judenfrei. The want a "One State Solution for all of Israel with the Jews driven out, to the sea, back to Europe etc. Just look at what happened in Gaza when Israel gave that land to them.)

    • BDS will fail because the “occupied territory of the West Bank” is not occupied. In 1948 israel was confirmed as a national entity by the U.N.[..] This subsequent partition plan of 1947 was merely a proposal and totally rejected by the Arabs. It has no legal standing whatsoever. The San Remo agreement and the Treaty of Lausanne are Israel’s Magna Carta and are in full force to this day. No country may try to change the legitimate borders of another country by intimidation, coercion or force.
