  • It's time for American Jews to recognize they have been duped
    • Avigail, the html format is to preface the text you want with backward and forward arrows which contain the command you want. i is for italics, so placing that inside the arrows will start the italics command. Placing a backslash before the i tells it the command is cancelled. So you end the passage you want with backslash i inside the arrows . It isn't possible to simply type the language here because it will ignore the arrows and backslashes as if it were syntax and not commentary. If you google html syntax there are lots of examples. Using a b, for example, instead of an i, will produce bold text.

    • Scotland - "a pro-Palestinian stronghold". That's funny. Now I know you haven't a clue what you are talking about. But in time-honoured fashion seek to denigrate where Abigail lives, as if that compromised her message, none of which you have been able to address. How the hasbrats make fools of themselves time and again.

    • It's neither a paradox nor a contradiction. It's just you wallowing in your insufferable sense of victimhood combined with an arrogant belief in your superiority. Or, " pity us, we are the worlds victims, and if you don't agree and let us have our own way we will attack you viciously". It's the reflex tantrum of a bully.

    • Another great article, full of conviction, clear thinking and accuracy. Thanks Abigail. No doubt the usual whiners will be along to divert and deny, but they are no match for the power of this kind of testimony. You can feel every sentence bristling with sadness and anger at the perversion and manipulation of Jewish identity for the delusional project of colonial settler politics. Bravo.

  • Press can't justify red carpet for Oren tract and blackout for Blumenthal's 'definitive account' of Gaza
    • Yes, Annie. A classic zionist in sheep's clothing. And about as convincing. When a zionist starts mentioning 'facts' I reach for a bottle of whisky and a revolver.

    • C'mon Giles. Who is the disingenuous one, studiously ignoring and avoiding the detailed explanations given to you. Denial, eh? You avoid linking to a four-year old poll, which would give lie to your claim. The questions are absurdly slanted in order to virtually guarantee the desired results, the demographic is the one you would expect to give those answers, and the methods carefully omitted. As Annie rightly, comprehensively and courteously points out to you, who ignore it, Luntz and Camera have from with all this nonsense, in order to make their political points. Mooser is also correct - all they have shown is that Israeli supporters support Israel. So enough of the patronising twaddle, there is nothing scientific or objective about this routine rigged poll - no genuine data or 'facts', and you haven't proved a thing.

  • British gov't welcomes Iran back into the 'community of nations' -- why can't we?
    • And your record is what? A litany of incoherent whining on a website. This is inane drivel, even from you. MW knows this and doesn't know that - what on earth are you talking about? MW is a website which publishes a variety of views and links, get your knickers out of the twist you are furiously tying them in.
      If you want to know why this is a good deal there are a bazillion articles from all over the world, any one of which you could avail yourself of. Instead you post the most bizarre, childish prattle which doesn't bear the slightest relevance to the issue. Are you serious? Evidently not. Grow up.

    • justicewillprevail July 17, 2015 at 7:17 pm

      Totally agree with the headline, and the impact of Allison's reporting. Nothing is as important as the stories of incredible hardship, but also incredible dignity, in the lives of people who could be any of us, anywhere. Reclaiming and recovering their stories from the fog and distortions of propaganda is vital, and should stand as an eloquent riposte to all those armchair warmongers, zealots who talk blithely of 'self-defence' and other pathetic justifications. Thanks, Allison.

  • Abe Foxman says goodbye to an America of secret Jew haters
    • justicewillprevail July 15, 2015 at 11:56 am

      So many things wrong with that rather suspect phrase 'Gentiles in America'. I suppose if you have a segregationist mindset, that is how you think. But it's not how the vast majority of Americans or anybody else thinks. As for 'national grouping' it is derived from the same faulty logic, but we all know the underlying premise and its ugly implications. Some people haven't moved on from the 19th century, so invested are they in the notion of separatism and manufactured difference. And no, the Cornish example is not remotely relevant. It comes from the same basic lack of comprehension as the attempt to hijack Scotland the other day. Funny, but no surprise.

  • Et tu, Michael Oren?
    • justicewillprevail July 13, 2015 at 4:56 pm

      Oren and co must be examples of those famous 'self-hating' Jews we keep hearing about. Since they are of American origin, but hold Americans in contempt. Fighting amongst each other is a sign of their insecurity and inability to corral people into their delusional belief system. The cognitive dissonance is too much.

  • Why the Charleston massacre isn't terrorism, and Palestinian resistance always will be
    • justicewillprevail July 11, 2015 at 3:58 pm

      Princess, perhaps you would like to think about the differences between resistance, which is legitimate, and protest. You seem to be mixing them up.

      As far as non-violent protest goes, please look up the case of Rachel Corrie, and see how Israel deals with non-violent protest. And then consider how far you can get with such undoubtedly noble actions. See also the flotillas.

      Why should Mondoweiss or EI tell Palestinians what to do, or admonish them? They do a great job in reporting and analysing information. That alone, in an intimidated, manufactured news environment is invaluable. You, like the readers, can make up your own mind and take whatever action in support of a just cause you find appropriate.

      You are implying that MW somehow damages the Palestinian cause - a claim consistent with hasbara, and as far from the truth as you are likely to get. Why are you focussed solely on the consequences of israeli unremitting violence and not their cause? What do you think Palestinians conclude from this daily brutal violence towards them - that violence doesn't work? It works for Israel.

  • Lies, smear, and two-steps -- Why did organizers really cancel the Feis?
    • Good reporting. It is obvious that a peaceful and rational protest succeeded - as pointed out, Ireland of all places would be receptive to the arguments. But the zionists couldn't just swallow that and slink away quietly, which would have been the sensible solution if they wanted to downplay it. No, they have to go on the attack and raise the usual hysteria based on their default victimhood position. They just can't help it, and only succeed in raising the profile of BDS and its arguments. When in a hole, the usual advice is to stop digging. Israeli PR has called in the diggers.

  • Michael Oren misrepresents 1971 synagogue bombing that changed his life
    • justicewillprevail July 13, 2015 at 8:23 pm

      Annie was right- this is an infantile (and thus stupid) attempt to justify the zionist enterprise with a fallacious comparison. Nothing new there, but the clueless nature of the remark, another futile diversion, is droll as only hopper can be. Scotland isn't a 'new country' as explained already, it has been around for about 1500 years. It is not defined by some vague and undefinable notion of 'ethnicity' or religion. It is not setting up camp in an already occupied country and throwing out the locals, or demanding that it must have special privileges and a ruthless army to further its aims. It is not gerrymandering the voters in order to have a segregationist state, based on some unicorn-like tale of ancient folklore. It is merely questioning whether the union which it entered into with england some 300 years ago is still in its best interests. It is a political argument, as England moves further right, Scotland places more faith in the social democratic model of Scandinavia and Germany. It is not remotely a 'dignity' issue, which is as specious an argument as i have heard, and as foolish as your attempt to mutilate any political event into some sort of perverse justification for zionism. They have nothing in common. Scotland would be insulted by the idea. Is there nothing you won't try to exploit to prop up your ramshackle claims in the most harebrained and uninformed way?

    • justicewillprevail July 13, 2015 at 5:51 pm

      Right, so this claimed upsurge is more important than people telling the truth, instead of using exaggerated claims of antisemitism to further their crackpot political agendas, which is what this thread is about. Yes, you can always drag it back to these generalised claims about MW, with precious little evidence, when you can't answer the point at issue and play your get-out-of-jail card. If you want to accuse people, at least have the honesty to be specific, instead of making vague generalised claims as if that justifies your own whataboutery. The McCarthyite schtick you and hop use doesn't fool anybody, especially the pompous way you have of lecturing people who have far more intellectual rigour than you demonstrate.

    • justicewillprevail July 13, 2015 at 1:02 pm

      No, it isn't. What is your point?

    • justicewillprevail July 13, 2015 at 6:28 am

      Great response and research, tree. Puts hoppy's wild allegations and fact-free assertions in the light in which they deserve to be seen - as the usual hokum and bluster. Thanks for the fascinating insight and well-sourced arguments.

    • justicewillprevail July 13, 2015 at 6:22 am

      This is quite unbelievable. I only know of two regimes in the world which thought you could classify people according to percentages of their blood or dna into racial categories. You know which those were, right? You think you can inherit cultural characteristics? What century are you living in?

    • justicewillprevail July 12, 2015 at 1:32 pm

      Shorter hop: when I can't back up anything I say, I can always put words in people's mouths and then act all outraged about what they didn't say.. Another demonstration of the immaculate hoppy logic: cover up a malicious accusation by making some more. Nice!

    • justicewillprevail July 12, 2015 at 7:08 am

      So you have been unable to corroborate any of your assertions about Oren's experience, or that Phil is lying, except by quoting Oren. If you can't see the logical redundancy and stupidity of that response, then it is no wonder you repeat the same old fallacies every time you grace us with your chicken-on-a-hot-griddle performance routine. A more honourable person would withdraw their accusations of 'lying' but I don't think i'll wait on that one, given your weird stalker-like, attention-seeking, obsession with Phil.

      Co-opting a dodgy magazine article on European anti-semitism and the Holocaust is further evidence of your inability to answer the questions. I daresay you imagine it gives you the moral high ground which means you don't have to stoop as low as to have answer the details of your random wild assertions. A cute trick, but repetition gives the game away.

      You just can't get any traction here, can you? Despite the desperate angry-man denunciations, the hot-under-the-collar furious fulminating from the hoppy bunker. I wonder why, lol

    • justicewillprevail July 11, 2015 at 9:56 am

      Would that be the Geneva conventions which were framed in order to ensure another Holocaust never happens - the same ones Israel flouts on a regular basis? The Holocaust is not a trump card to be played cheaply when you cannot address an argument - shame on you for even trying. Stupid remarks, eh?

    • justicewillprevail July 11, 2015 at 9:25 am

      Once again, hop enters a thread like a bull in a china shop, tossing unsubstantiated allegations and insults around with gay abandon. With your track record, I wouldn't be so quick to accuse others of lying or or being inaccurate. With Phil's record I would be much more inclined to trust him, knowing that he will correct anything if necessary (unlike your scattergun attacks, then run away approach).
      A quick check reveals that Oren's parents were a therapist (mother) and hospital administrator (father). Sounds impeccably middle class, unless of course you class 'wealthy' as the super rich. Privilege is not synonymous with wealthy, btw, I know it is a bit subtle for you.
      The rest of your diatribe is unsourced assertions, contrary to the personal experiences mentioned here, so if you want to paint a different picture, back it up with some facts. You know what those are, right?

    • justicewillprevail July 10, 2015 at 5:49 pm

      Zionism is so invested in anti-semitism as its raison d'être that it has no problem in illustrating their thesis by some bombings perpetrated by themselves to be blamed on anti-semitism. Kahane had the motive and the skills. It wouldn't be the first time. Of course it could just be an amazing coincidence.

      As for the knuckles thing, it sound as preposterous as Oren's whole attitude - self-aggrandising myth-making. It goes with the territory. Manufacturing myth is second nature to zionism, since it depends so heavily on it.

  • Happy 10th Anniversary BDS
    • justicewillprevail July 11, 2015 at 3:44 am

      Hmmm, so you failed to provide any evidence for your ridiculous assertions, claimed that BDS is only successful because of those shady 'millions' of secret funding, then told us how ineffective BDS is, following it up with this feeble attempt to denigrate Maria by bringing up and exploiting a tragic death entirely unrelated to her actions and dumping it in this thread.
      So all you've got to offer is hate and vitriol, no arguments, some sneering and smearing, and an attitude that sounds like an immature teenage zealot. That'll be very effective in persuading people that they are doing the right thing in freely spending their time opposing the ideology you so charmingly espouse.

    • justicewillprevail July 10, 2015 at 6:06 pm

      I take my hat off to you, Maria. You and your associates are a great example of the commitment of ordinary people without the backing of billionaire's casino funds. DaBak cannot understand the commitment that blatant injustice inspires. He's a fine one to talk about money when the IDF pocketed the personal possessions of people they illegally arrested. Although he could tip us off where those millions are to be obtained in order to oppose zionist piracy and theft. Because he definitely knows about it, it's just that he can't find those sources 'cos he's a bit tired. All that blowhard commenting has just worn him right out.

    • justicewillprevail July 10, 2015 at 7:01 am

      So all you've got is innuendo and an admission that you can't source any of your allegations about 'multi-millions' (lol). Of course you can't be bothered - it would reveal the spurious, fictitious and absurd claims for what they are. Laziness isn't an excuse for lying.

  • The BDS Movement at 10: An interview with Omar Barghouti
    • justicewillprevail July 10, 2015 at 1:27 pm

      Yes, they're so integrated that Israel exploits and keeps nearly all of the resources for itself, whilst maintaining a chokehold on the Palestinian economy, ensuring it can't rise above the most basic level of subsistence. Crop destruction, land and water theft, factory destruction, livestock destruction, movement restriction - and enforced dependence , all integrated meticulously into an apartheid regime. Your concern for its maintenance in a 'confederation' is touching.

    • where were you educated?

    • justicewillprevail July 10, 2015 at 8:32 am

      Pogrund's litany of hasbara talking points in the Guardian are the usual fare. Suddenly the Green Line, which Israel rejects, is a valid boundary and the reason that it isn't apartheid is that West Bank Palestinians aren't Israelli citizens. Duh, maybe keeping people deliberately stateless and without rights is part of the apartheid strategy. Citizenship has nothing to do with it, except as a crude strategy to absolve your responsibility for the people you ruthlessly control and imprison.
      For a less partisan and misleading view try Stephen Robert, who didn't just find it apartheid, but 'apartheid on steroids'

    • justicewillprevail July 9, 2015 at 11:43 am

      Ha, your concern with the welfare of the Palestinians you are destroying is noted. A small pocket of prosperity in Ramallah should be compared to the inflicted misery of Palestinians in the surrounding areas. And you should try educating yourself about BDS, instead of rehashing boilerplate hasbara. Perhaps you missed this sentence: "It targets Israel and entities that are complicit in its regime of oppression" No mention of Ramallah, unless of course you consider it a zionist outpost. But perhaps that angle is lost on you.

  • New online digital mapping tool shows inside story of Israeli assault on Gaza
    • justicewillprevail July 8, 2015 at 6:15 pm

      No worries, Annie. Glad to be able to help and add my impressions of this impressive technology. Israel likes to think they can attack and destroy with impunity, as if they can immediately forget about it after it's over. But they can't escape the consequences and long-term effects of such massacres. What do many people remember about Vietnam? Scenes like the Mai Lai massacre. It burns into their memory. Northern Ireland - Bloody Sunday. The grotesquely named Protective Edge massacre may well go down in history like that. There was a program on the BBC tonight about the effects on children, including footage of the boys killed on the beach, and the Dresden-like images of Gaza City. This is what people recall, and it is backed up by the painstaking work being done here - all of which add to the case against Israel and seek to hold it accountable. Blithe dismissals and crude hasbara only reinforce their deeply inadequate and indifferent response, which only highlights their S African style denial and provokes the same kind of campaign against them.
      Which is why I agree with your diagnosis of change in our lifetimes.

    • I went to a presentation about this, and it is an amazing piece of forensic work, which collates the multiple recordings and eye witness accounts in microscopic and comprehensive detail. It has enormous value in providing an independent account of Israeli strikes corroborated by tens, if not hundreds, of witnesses, which makes it very hard, if not impossible, to contradict. Israel has, as we all know, sought to cloak its ruthless civilian strikes in bland, mendacious language, often not even acknowledging the number or impact of these devastating, indiscriminate bombings.
      Now there is an alternative source of information, and one which is near impossible for israel to shut down. They have tried to control the narrative for decades. Digital technology and its ubiquity have rendered that null and void. Israel worst enemy is the truth, in all its carefully researched and documented detail - which is why they hate these UN reports so much.
      Now Palestinians have another tool to disseminate the truth about the lethal, deliberate destruction of infrastructure - hospitals, schools, factories and of course houses. And of course it will be invaluable in any court of law, such as a war crimes court, and for the colossal reparations they are due.

  • Theodor Herzl wasn't Jewish, according to Israeli minister
    • justicewillprevail July 10, 2015 at 10:51 am

      No, you are overreacting. Who cares what your associates think. There is some amusement at the revelation that 'who is a Jew' is an 'age-old question'. Since the state of israel is founded on this definition, and depends on it to dispense privileges not afforded to others, give them the land and houses of the native people and beggar other countries for billions of dollars, it makes the whole edifice rather shaky. Now we find they can't even agree themselves, which demolishes the whole basis for discriminating in favour of people who have arbitrarily the 'correct' grandparents. So they're just like everybody else, but different in a way nobody can quite define or detect, although an enormous bureaucracy is dedicated to ensuring their separate identity - how bizarre. Maybe it's all a social construct, eh?
      A modern state with a commitment to equal human rights would not of course discriminate in such arbitrary ways, based on the myths of one section of the population.

    • justicewillprevail July 9, 2015 at 11:55 am

      Indeed. And i have often that a god who concerns herself with whether a hat is on or off, what kind of hat it is, the hairstyle, shaved or not, bearded, bald or elaborately coiffured has perhaps too much time on their hands (what do they do all day?)

      Whatever, people love making up rules and rituals to justify their cultish beliefs. Then they can persecute the other lot who wear hats on the wrong day of the week, or don't wear fur coats in summer. Life of Brian had it about right.

      Israel is most definitely not 'needed' - it is a huge part of the problem. Its strategy to make itself inextricable with the US has succeeded to the point where there are many insiders who deplore the influence of a foreign power on the US. They are biting their lip for now, but once a movement grows, their voices will be heard. Who cares that they are 'big guys' - that alone makes them vulnerable.

      Ah, ever the one to get to the heart of the matter, Mooser. You're right, those dirty, lowdown rats in the US have treated immigrant Jews just like any other citizen and allowed them free association and movement, not to mention equal rights. Shocking, a body blow to the policy directive from Hasbara Central.
      Which makes me wonder - what would America look like under Israeli-style government? Free passage for all white Christians, including the secular ones who have inherited a bible in the family. Everyone else, well they could be herded into some of the smaller, more remote states, put under blockade, forbidden to travel, and their houses regularly demolished, in case they get too comfortable. Water restrictions and their crops uprooted just as a precaution against economic development and self-subsistence. You could have Korean, Mexican, Irish, Italian ghettoes, since there would be no US citizenship, just 'ethnic' categories. It would of course be the only democracy in the Americas. Just to top it off, this new state would demand a steady stream of taxpayers money from China or Europe, since they would be defending an essential way of life, and stopping the barbarians. Of course, full participation in these foreign government's policies would be an essential requisite. And anyone dissenting would be tarred and feathered as an anti-American, the lowest form of prejudice.
      Yep, Israel is a shining example to us all.

    • justicewillprevail July 5, 2015 at 4:52 pm

      Halevy and Oren, and the others in their camp, just don't get it - the rules of the game have changed, with the consequence that their tired and threadbare old stratagems don't work any more. In fact, worse than that, they are thoroughly counter-productive, and only alienate more people , confirming the growing awareness of israel as a rogue state, contemptuous of the US while at the same time demanding endless support for an increasingly and clearly ugly, rotten apartheid system.

      Trotting out lines like 'israel at the most dangerous time in its history' is utterly banal, and only betrays the paucity and ludicrously overblown hysteria they routinely deploy, and only insults the audience who have been paying through the nose for a country awash with arms, missiles, advanced weaponry of all kinds, whilst also covering for it with the most egregious lies about its true nature.

      It is impossible for most people to square the reality which is increasingly common currency with the fabulous tales and wild claims that Oren and co make. They are making utter fools of themselves, particularly through their inability to understand how they have exhausted the shallow, implausible rhetoric they have relied on for decades. It just doesn't work any more, and the more it doesn't work, they worse they get with their apocalyptic claptrap.

      People are tired of it, the same old gestures and hollowed-out threats disguised as advice, the patronising lecturing, hectoring bluffing from bullies who have held sway for far too long. The emperor hasn't got the clothes he pretends to, and everyone outside the fantasy-filled lobby knows it. Israel has cut itself off, but its handlers still think the mob threats and rackets still work to keep the crowd at bay and the legislators in line. Forget it, Oren, you're out of time. It's over.

Funny how racists always claim that 'everybody' speaks like them indoors. And it wasn't long before an apologist came along to throw in the Charleston massacre as some kind of false equivalence. Israeli squatters and the IDF don't even make the news when they gun down defenceless Palestinians.

  • Ending memoricide-- the Nakba Museum project
    • Thanks for this. Israel has been relentless in erasing as much traces as it can of Palestine and its people, in its ruthless project of the denial of a real history and memory of Palestine for its people. As an addendum, i attended a screening of a film about cultural memory through cinema - the Palestinian film archive was kept in a building in Beirut, beside the PLO HQ I believe. The archive was the target of the first bomb when Israel attacked Lebanon in 1982. That tells its own story, although many Palestinians and Israelis believe that Mossad appropriated the archive for its own purposes and it still exists, probably never to be seen again.

      This filmmaker has attempted a reconstruction of memories for which there are no existing images any more. It is a short, well worth looking at:

Nothing to see, nothing to respond to, no case to answer, just another day, a routine killing at the hands of the child killing IDF. And then they have the nerve to pretend nothing really happened, and whine about the fact that the world is disgusted and repelled by their cheap, shallow, sadistic behaviour and ideology?

      What hogwash from beginning to end, complete with hokey little stories about bits of cloth.

There is no evidence that claiming all of the land for Israel is some kind of negotiating strategy, which is all you highflown attempts to sound like a logician amount to. On the contrary every action points to the deeply held belief that it is 'all ours', and a ruthless determination to make it so.

As for the Palestinians, contrary to your claim, they have made clear for decades what they will settle for - the rest of the world agrees with them. Hasbara fail, again.

They cannot break their spirit of resistance, they cannot win legally, except by adopting laws they don't live by themselves, so let's break them financially, before jailing, assaulting and cleansing them from their own village.

Any decent journalism or news outlet would interview the other parties to the agreement - Britain, France etc but also, crucially, the iranians, to hear their side of the story and what they expect. That is journalism 101. Instead the leader of a small country, not involved in the agreement, is granted hours to spin and distort the agreement, whilst viewers are not informed about opinions and facts regarding a historic breakthrough. It is worse than pathetic - it is a dereliction of any pretence to journalism, and a craven kowtowing to an isolated, impotent loudmouth who has nothing to offer except ill-informed ranting, threats and delusions. What a pitiful, and dangerously inept, media. Why does it take a blog to raise questions and attempt to answer them, while well-funded journalists repeat verbatim wild, unfounded accusations?
