  • Leave your house between 6 pm and 11 am 'and we will break your legs' -- order to 16-year-old Palestinian
    • justicewillprevail May 25, 2015 at 1:30 pm

      Wow, talk like the mob, act like the mob. Gangsterism is the preferred MO of the ISF (Israeli Sick Forces), they should really wear the pointy white headgear to go with the attitude. Yes, apparently God is on their side. Or so their tiny minds believe. An example to us all. Just not in the way they imagine.

  • Israel will imprison soldier, 19, for publicly criticizing the occupation
    • justicewillprevail May 25, 2015 at 11:44 am

      He wasn't engaging in political speech. He was giving an honest eye witness account of his own experiences, when asked. Corroborated by the guy sitting next to him. You are the idiot here, trying to hide behind laws drafted for entirely different purposes. Which is beside the point, anyway. It is obvious he is being punished for offering an honest account of the occupation forces. There have been hundreds of similar accounts, all of which are denied and brushed under the carpet by armchair experts like you.

    • And just to reinforce the point: Palestinians are jailed for posting on Facebook comments which Israel doesn't like, and frames as subversion:

      Oh, the perils of israeli-style 'democracy' and 'free speech'.

    • justicewillprevail May 25, 2015 at 7:44 am

      Truth is a disaster for Israel, and how they know it. This is what they are compelled to do in order to keep a lid on it. The disbelief belies an indoctrinated and policed society. Like the old Soviets and other closed regimes. JVP or similar should institute an annual award for services to truth and justice, and give this guy one. In order to show their support for people prepared to stand up to the thought police, and demonstrate that zionism doesn't speak for Jewish people, but only for israeli zealots and propagandists.

  • The grotesque injustice of Obama's speech at the Washington synagogue
    • justicewillprevail May 25, 2015 at 1:39 pm

      It's quite encouraging that she met people who happen to be Jewish, rather than people who think it makes them something other, a zealous foot soldier of a nationalist, segregationist ideology who imagine that everybody must subscribe to their narrow-minded fixations because they share some cultural beliefs.

  • Netanyahu: Jerusalem was always the capital 'of the Jewish people alone'
    • justicewillprevail May 18, 2015 at 6:38 pm

      Yes, put these examples together with the daily smashing of cameras, homes, equipment, infrastructure, orchards, olive groves, burning of mosques, attacks on orphanages, the chanting of mobs, the encouragement of hate - and you have the equivalent of a long, continuing Kristallnacht. The timescale may be different, the effect is the same, or even worse. And yes, the comparison has been noted in other examples of hate and destruction accompanied by mobs of Israeli Jews. Hebron is a classic example of this Kristallnacht behaviour.

  • Why readers interested in balanced coverage of BDS should avoid the New York Times
    • Hilarious. The pompous posturing and utterly shallow attempt at denigrating MW is priceless in its vacuity. Let's see: MW publishes intelligent, articulate pieces backed up by links, facts, eye witness accounts, video evidence and personal testimony. Israel dumps real sewage on people unfortunate enough to have lived there for centuries on land coveted by incomers, then denies it, lies about it, and attacks people who report it. Who is closer to a running sewer, and who uses this kind of language in a futile attempt to shut up debate and truth? What a bunch of transparent propagandists, so utterly unaware of their reputation and image outside of their favourite mouthpieces.

    • justicewillprevail May 10, 2015 at 5:30 am

      This is satire, surely. No-one in their right mind would write such patently ludicrous excuses. Otherwise you would have to conclude that the writer is making unsubtle references to racial differences, where the objects of his disgust are 'dirty', poor, ignorant people who despoil the landscape which belongs to the racially pure and clean immigrants. Way to justify ethnic cleansing, with the emphasis on 'cleansing'. That is of course, after you bankrupt them. Such paragons of virtue and morality, zionists. Thanks for the illustration of your corrupt thinking and the mindset of zionism. We get the picture. The banality of evil, indeed. Or, in Israel, how they have adapted it in order to disguise it - the bureaucracy of evil.

    • In the grotesque Kafka world that is Israel, the victims must pay for their own extinction. They are already camping in a graveyard, thanks to Israel. Now they are being charged before Israel buries them there. What a fine principle, a new high in vindictive, despotic cruelty. israelis must be proud. Indigenous people are not only cleared off their own land, out of their own houses, but driven to the edge of their graves, from where they must pay Israel for this remarkable privilege. What fine minds have laboured long and hard to devise this exquisitely cruel denouement to their campaign of ethnic cleansing. 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. Israel has surely few rivals for premeditated sadism towards people who offer no threat to them. They just have the wrong parents. What a sick regime. Makes apartheid look gentle and caring.

  • An open letter to Pamela Geller
    • justicewillprevail May 10, 2015 at 7:56 am

  • A response to the 'Washington Post' blogger who calls me an anti-Semite
    • justicewillprevail May 6, 2015 at 9:39 am

      The point is, however much you write screeds of excuses and diversions, the zionist lobby is not like any other lobby, and certainly doesn't behave like any other. Perhaps you could tell us which others act like vigilantes over every single senator, write legislation for them and dragoon them into their nasty political ideology of war and segregation. Pretending otherwise is stupid, but of course you spend all your time pretending, at great spam-like length.

      Thanks, Stever Groveller, for your demonstrating your complete failure to understand this article, and denigrating a woman's pain and grief, in order to score some imaginary point. The people who are exploiting and callously using the futile deaths of young people for their own political and ideological ends are the cynically posing ones in the picture.

  • Marking Memorial Day in Tel Aviv with Kahanists and Combatants for Peace

      That you refer to readers and commenters here as 'fans' and have a little strop because people refuse to comply with your clearly superior insight, and prefer to think for themselves, tells us a lot about you, and nothing about Phil or Mondoweiss. Better to keep your vow.

  • Just like the Nazis, Iran 'plans to exterminate six million Jews' -- Netanyahu
    • Yonah, your braggadocio in lecturing Phil about the credibility of this site is priceless.

  • 'United States of Israel' has compromised U.S. 'sovereignty' on Iran policy -- Gideon Levy in D.C.
    • justicewillprevail April 13, 2015 at 7:16 pm

      Like the other shills in this thread, Grover failed to bother reading or understanding Gideon Levy's point - which is hardly surprising in their rush to shoot the messenger and ignore the message. Levy's point was about the insulating fantasy of the 'good life', the delusional bubble built on the rubble from other people's homes and land, fortified by the garrison mentality, not to mention the apartheid philosophy. But Grover and co don't want to know about that, or have their delusion shattered by someone who has eyes to see, and a depth of perception way beyond them.

    • justicewillprevail April 13, 2015 at 6:45 pm

      And American taxpayers forking up for it, protecting them and then being insulted. How good is that?

    • justicewillprevail April 12, 2015 at 4:57 pm

      Grover, calling Levy a 'traitor' is not a 'legitimate' response, unless you consider that journalists have some kind of duty to print propaganda for a proto fascist state, and by not toeing the line he is somehow a 'traitor'. All you do is make Levy's point for him. The 'traitors' are those who, as Levy says, undermine and betray America in the service of a small, benighted military state, of no strategic or other value to the US, one which actively seeks to corrupt the US political process for its own benefit.

    • justicewillprevail April 12, 2015 at 4:30 pm

      Straight to the heart of the matter. No wonder zionists hate him so. This speech should be pinned to the wall of every US senator and read aloud to them, in the possibly forlorn hope that they will stop being so terrified of the power of the lobby - and start thinking about US interests for once.

  • My personal journey of transformation

  • Israel could reduce anti-Semitic violence by not calling itself the Jewish state, Finkelstein says
    • justicewillprevail April 16, 2015 at 6:47 pm

      Zionists are the most humourless, pontificating self-regarding bunch you are likely to meet. Which is why there is such a rich vein of humour in Mooser's shrewd comments on their pretensions, which is only fuelled by their resolute refusal to get the salient point of the barbed and quite astute humour. Since they rarely engage in debate, and offer instead long-winded lectures from their lofty moral perch, humour seems a very appropriate way of subverting their windbagging reiteration of already discredited 'facts'. Funny that he hits a nerve in them, and that they are unable to respond with any wit or humour themselves. Exposing the glaring contradictions in their arguments, and their self-defeating rhetoric, must be infuriating, i guess.

    • justicewillprevail April 16, 2015 at 3:07 pm

      Ha ha, that's rich, coming from Hophmi, the expert in making evidence-free hysterical claims about this site and its host. The myriad of eye-witness accounts, the photographic and journalistic evidence available to anyone, the jails full of people incarcerated without trial, the medical records, the balance of forces - all of them will be dismissed by the high and mighty Hoppy who wants what he calculates you can't provide, since the Israeli occupation is not going to release the statistics he demands, with a stamp of his little foot. If only he could provide any evidence for his own claims then he might have a case, but they are based on the usual myths, lies and fake history.

      Sorry, should have given the link:

      link to juancole.com

      Any credit belongs to the Prof

    • Prof Cole has a simple, but good take on this: why is Netanyahu granted hours of talk show on this topic, to which he is tangential, and not involved. 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?

      If looks could kill - you can feel her entirely justified burning resentment at this jumped-up immigrant squatter ordering her around in her own locality. The symbols surrounding her just add to the distaste. He sees nothing. How very predictable and sad.
      Just another day in the Jewish paradise - children attacked, wounded and arrested in the middle of the night, orphanages raided, terrorist olive trees felled, prisoners denied medical attention from the wounds inflicted by the israeli militia, more imprisonments without trial, fishing boats fired on for no reason - the list is endless, daily, a litany of grinding, occupying suffocation by an indifferent, fascist bunch of kids in uniform, who could care less. How do people acclimatise and normalise their behaviour to accept this level of sadistic punishment and discrimination against a desperately poor and defenceless people? This is what all those myriad of think tanks, paid-up acolytes and covert agents spend all their time defending and promoting, not to mention synagogues and civic associations. How squalid and supremely callous they are. How proud they are of this repugnant exercise in extinguishing a native population. Just look this woman in the eye and explain your grovelling greed to possess her home, take her children away and deny her freedom and dignity - for what?

  • Hurt by the Israel lobby, Obama kisses it goodbye
    • justicewillprevail April 7, 2015 at 6:28 pm

      Ah, such a touchingly naive portrait of little israel. Apparently 'progressive' in Hoppy's lexicon means a reactionary, 19th Century ethno-nationalist, military garrison mentality. A carefully constrained and limited democracy isn't really much to shout about, and is not that different from Iranian democracy in which a parliament is elected, but subject to the ruling junta. Mind you, Iran gives everybody the vote.
      As for the bogeyman 'radical left' (lol) - pray tell us what Iranian state press they read, and what they repeat from it - apparently in hoppyworld there is no source of information other than israeli state propaganda or the iranian press. I guess he hasn't twigged this internet, blogging, reporting, video culture yet - it probably doesn't figure in his 19th century mindstate, because he's so modern, don't you know, and progressive - why, soon he'll be advocating trial before arbitrary arrest and imprisonment, and equal rights for all. Well, you never know. I live in hope. hoppy.

    • justicewillprevail April 13, 2015 at 6:11 pm

      Superb, tree. An eloquent and heartfelt essay which would make a standalone article here. A pity it will be wasted on the likes of Yonah, who will ignore it and continue with his ceaseless quest to force people into his straitjacketed, narrow-minded view of the world. However, it is not wasted on most of the rest of us who appreciate the time and effort you take to respond so thoughtfully to a serially thoughtless and rebarbative insulter, part of the small gang who continually whine and divert so pointlessly here, without ever learning a thing. Which they would if they bothered to take your articulate thoughts on board.

    • justicewillprevail April 1, 2015 at 6:16 pm

      Yonah baby, you are the one who sounds bitter, unable to convince anybody of your faux horror at the gangsterism of the lobby. And really, try as you do, you can't match Phil's eloquence with your clunky efforts at comparisons. But no, since you ask, we don't want anything to do with your feeble sandwich, leave us out of your weird fantasies. Just try coming up with a coherent argument instead of blaming everyone for not recognising the scintillating rhetorical skills you are convinced you have. Apparently you have nothing to say about these heroic people and the despicable, and revealing, treatment by their 'community', but just want to attack the messenger. How predictable.

    • justicewillprevail March 31, 2015 at 4:59 pm

      The gangster reference is to indicate the likeness of the ziolobby to the mafia - threats, malicious actions, smears and group behaviour designed to make outsiders of people who cross them. Seems fair.

      Of course you miss the irony of people who stood up for US civil rights being slimed and lowballed by those who claim to hold 'western values', and who are keen to deny any talk of civil rights in their precious theme park. The ugliness of their behaviour, and total disregard for the rights enshrined in their host country, is a sign of their degenerate, retrograde racist mindset. They don't get how repugnant they are, and why they think they represent, or speak for, Jews outside of the mob, is a mystery. But they cling to it as if it is some sort of justification, as well as a stick to beat others with. They are self-elected spokespeople for no-one except themselves. Who would want to be in their insular, outdated nasty bigoted club, whatever culture you grew up with?

What gives them this kind of right to be so vituperative and obnoxious to others whilst claiming that any criticism of them is beyond the pale antisemitism blah blah?

      'Calling for genocide in a vague sense' - lol. I take it you mean there is no evidence that he is calling for genocide, but you are going to accuse him of it, nevertheless, in a 'vague sense'. Well, at least you out yourself as unconcerned with any details like what people actually do or say, and just make stuff up about them, in order to satisfy your deeply held prejudices. You are deliberately misleading and deceptive about the context for Salaita's tweets (which were about the slaughter of helpless people in Gaza, and the state sanctioned racism inherent in the occupation and dispossession of Palestine); and you are clueless, or mendacious, about his books. No doubt you hope no-one will check, but readers of Mondoweiss will already know, having read Phan Nguyen's excellent takedown of the affair. Perhaps you should make more of an effort to read this site, instead of trolling the threads, issuing pontificating evidence-free comments which are straight from the hasbara handbook - accusations you can't support, except 'in a vague sense'.

      Fascinating, in a way, to see the apologists and propagandists squirming as the truth finally starts breaking through the wall they have built around it. As we all know, when confronted with the basic facts, zionism has no answer other than a retreat into exceptionalism, victimhood and, with no real shame, the acceptance that the existence of israel as it currently exists necessarily entails a racist state. Bibi didn't speak out of turn, or as a maverick, he simply said in plain language what the majority of israelis think. It is the revelation of the truth which bothers these people, not the denial of justice or human rights to half of the population, not the assaults on children, the imprisonments without trial, the confiscation of homes and lands and the expulsion of local people. No, it is just the embarrassment which they feel at the truth being broadcast to people they thought they had successfully suckered for decades. Enjoy their discomfort, there is a lot more coming down the pike, now the dam is breaking, and many of those who were formerly cowed by the lobby will feel able to speak freely. That is their nightmare - free thinking, free speech and free debate, with copious information freely available.

No qualms about lecturing the President on his failing to satisfy their deeply held prejudices, no recognition that he might have to balance a lot more competing interests than the insular demands of a self-aggrandising little segregationist state. When they ludicrously claim that Obama isn't 'respecting' Israeli voters (by believing what their PM told them), they seem utterly clueless about the decades of utter disrespect their tiny tot state has shown to the US, spying on it, attacking its navy, manipulating its politics for its own agenda, corrupting public officials and constantly demanding billions of aid. Have they really no awareness of how ridiculous they are, and how they are so programmed to defend a racist ideology that they profess shock and horror when a US president expresses some mild distaste of it, and makes the obvious statement that it cannot last? If they can't handle that, how do they imagine any future for Israel which is not apartheid and violence, endlessly bankrolled and excused by the US? Oh, that's what they want...

    • justicewillprevail March 23, 2015 at 10:28 am

      Masked jewish squatters throw stones at a six year old girl, injuring her. The laughably named IDF assaults a young boy, beating him severely, and breaks into two schools. Just another day in the dismal routine of Israeli life, lording it over the poor indigenous population. What a crock of shit zionism is, all of that high-flown BS about 'returning' and 'ancestral lands'. This is what it boils down to, in a microcosm of hatred, entitlement and the long, slow harassment and humiliation of people not deemed to be of the right bureaucratic classification, at the most petty, sadistic level. In a way it speaks more about Israeli society and its indifferent acceptance of daily violence against others than the all out military assaults on Gaza. There is nothing all of these pathetic apologists can say to save any shred of credibility the ugly cult of zionism might have once had. Time for everybody to reject these ugly mobsters and their hideous practices.

A parallel universe where Israel is a normal, democratic country at peace with its neighbours and awards its citizens equal rights regardless of artificial bureaucratic categories of 'ethnicity' or religion. A country which hasn't corrupted the democratic process in the US, or lobbied for US young men to go to a pointless war on their behalf.

What moral vacuum do these people inhabit, the humourless, spineless cowards who hide behind professional, funded groups determined to manufacture offence where there is none, in their continual effort to silence political debate?

Or of course, try the schoolboy dime novel psychology, as you did so laughably on Phil.

It is a powerful movie, with a challenging question to its audience.

Myriads of groups administratively divided and separated according to artificial ethnic spurious racial distinctions. Who are then treated differently and awarded different privileges.

But never mind, Jeffy has a league table of who Europeans prefer to kill, and guess who comes out as the winner. It obviously gives him a great deal of satisfaction to be recognised as such. Never mind the millions who died in slavery, colonialism, two world wars etc etc, there is one group who always win the league for victimisation. And it is not the Lutherans, although I guess they have a claim too. Do you know any? see what I mean.

The more her oppressors and abusers attack her, the more they demean themselves and reveal the racist, political system which they have been methodically building since 1948. Hanin Zoabi's family have lived in Palestine/Israel for centuries, generations longer than the pipsqueak colonisers who claim to own the ground she walks on, and who deny her the rights she and her fellow countrymen are entitled to. That alone gives her a moral authority which they cannot stand, and one which they obviously want to bury in their pathetic insinuations, slander and personal attacks. They are diminished and exposed by the simple dignity of Hanin, just by her existence which is a simple and eloquent rebuttal to all of their delusional attempts to rewrite history and deny the reality of their historic theft and occupation.

      In it, he plays mildly sinister babysitter, who turns up at one couple’s house entirely uninvited."

Gruesome and loaded with symbolism of which he is blissfully unaware, this is the last person you would want anywhere near your kids. The is straight out of the Brothers Grimm nightmare fairy tales.

    • justicewillprevail January 31, 2015 at 5:32 pm

      "Senator McCain could have taken the easy route by simply reading the meticulously researched book by the late Christopher Hitchens, The Trial of Henry Kissinger. Writing as a prosecutor before an international court of law, Hitchens skewers Kissinger for ordering or sanctioning the destruction of civilian populations, the assassination of “unfriendly” politicians and the kidnapping and disappearance of soldiers, journalists and clerics who got in his way. He holds Kissinger responsible for war crimes that range from the deliberate mass killings of civilian populations in Indochina, to collusion in mass murder and assassination in Bangladesh, the overthrow of the democratically elected government in Chile, and the incitement and enabling of genocide in East Timor.
      McCain could have also perused the warrant issued by French Judge Roger Le Loire to have Kissinger appear before his court. When the French served Kissinger with summons in 2001 at the Ritz Hotel in Paris, Kissinger fled the country. More indictments followed from Spain, Argentina, Uruguay—even a civil suit in Washington DC.

      Hitchens was disgusted by the way Henry Kissinger was treated as a respected statesman. He would have been appalled by Senator McCain’s obsequious attitude. “Kissinger should have the door shut in his face by every decent person and should be shamed, ostracized, and excluded,” Hitchens said. “No more dinners in his honor; no more respectful audiences for his absurdly overpriced public appearances; no more smirking photographs with hostesses and celebrities; no more soliciting of his worthless opinions by sycophantic editors and producers.”

      Correct. The evidence is overwhelming. They are not even 'limited military objectives', but deliberate punitive actions, or collective punishment. A Palestinian life means nothing to the Israseli government or the IDF, who kill people with impunity. It is part of the wider strategy of making Palestine unliveable for ordinary people - no free movement, limited water and resources, and no security of your own home or land. They do not distinguish between Palestinian civilians and militia, thus every Palestinian is conveniently classified as a military target, and deemed suitable for punishment or elimination. It is normally called fascism.

      C'mon, Jeff. You launch a completely ridiculous rant against Mondoweiss with the most hysterical claims, for which there is no evidence whatsoever, and then whine about 'name calling'. There is no argument in your wild-eyed denunciation, and it comes complete with an absurd comparison, the truth of which no-one is party to, except you. Besides it is spectacularly irrelevant. False, misleading analogies don't make any kind of case for whatever you imagine you are making. As for your encomium on rights, it is another incoherent and unfounded claim, and would seem to imply the worst kind of despotism, domination and control. Not that I expect anything better. It sums up the zionist approach. You are out on a limb with some frankly preposterous, asinine statements - so you shouldn't be surprised to be met with some derision. It is the only appropriate response.

    • Jeff, what a pathetic tissue of vague, unfounded innuendo, ridiculous assertions, meaningless comparisons, all ending in a smear - you want ethnic tension. Really, it would be laughable if it wasn't so desperate. Considering Zionism is founded and perpetrated by erecting ethnic differences and separate rights, creating and enforcing them where none exist, you are just exposing your lurid ravings to ridicule. You try to pull the same trick as Atar, forcing people into your artificial schemes and categories and them berating them for it. And as for knowledge of Black kids - don't make yourself look even more stupid.

  • Israeli settlers attack US consulate convoy in the West Bank (Updated)

      'settlers responsible behaviour' - now we know he is on drugs or hallucinating. These people are on some kind of zionist crack.

    • After the USS Liberty, this is small beer. Israelis know that the US will never have the nerve to get on their case, but will instead keep voting to hand over large amounts of taxpayer money to these fascists. America is a feeble patsy for these KKK goons. Roll over and sign the cheques, let the Israelis fire at and attack Americans. The kosher nostra will take care of it.

  • David Brooks says 'people from around the world' can serve in Israeli military
    • justicewillprevail January 3, 2015 at 7:45 pm

      Of course it's inaccurate and deliberately misleading. That's the whole point. By missing out the crucial qualifier 'Jews' from the phrase 'around the world', it deliberately intends to mislead and obscure the ethno-cultural group to which this applies, and tries to make out that anyone can turn up and join the junta squads (as if anyone in their right mind would want to, lol). Brooks, just another tired old sycophantic spin doctor for the junta, knows precisely what he is doing by elision, and it is revealing how the supporters of this swivel-eyed state have to twist and turn the facts, and paint a knowingly false picture for the benefit of uninformed readers. Absolutely par for the course, predictable and another fail for the false, artificially maintained, apartheid 'state'.

  • Happy holidays from the IDF
    • Bibi with his killer dogs and masked gunmen; now a terrorist lighting a candle. Israel has the PR it deserves - they actually think this stuff is laudable? On reflection, I can only conclude that the IDF terrorist is extinguishing the light, and bringing darkness to the world.

  • NY Times says a Palestinian majority would 'endanger Israel's democratic ideals'
    • You can only ask, in wonderment, what democratic ideals? Where is this idea that Israel ever had, or has, democratic ideals? Other than paying lip service to the idea of democracy, they have always made clear that Jewish rule comes first, and the only possible interpretation of democracy in Israel is of Jews deciding which Jewish party gets in, not Israelis, or the people ruled by them denied a vote. The same whining and apocalyptic language was routinely deployed by S African whites when the subject of democracy for all came up - the blacks weren't ready for it, it wasn't in their culture blah blah blah. Gerrymandering democracy to ensure a genuine democracy is not possible isn't, of course, democracy at all. The NYT should know better, instead of printing superficial PR from hasbara central. That is if they want to be taken seriously outside of their own circle jerk.

  • Jordanian-Palestinian resolution to the UN Security Council gives US and Israel wiggle room
    • But the Palestinians have had to 'agree' to universal diktats for 75 years. No hypocrisy or arrogance there then, Bibi. Such an insular egotistic folly of a sham leader.

  • Israel will lose all American Jews but the crazies
    • And yeah, the 'most moral army in the world' apparently has no ethical problem with releasing killer dogs against unarmed Palestinian civilians who will have no recourse to justice. Nice morals. Nice advertising of them.

    • This is beyond belief, or satire, come to that. What deluded fantasy world do these people live in that they think there is anything remotely acceptable enough about this image to justify promoting it? Utterly ludicrous. Like a tenth rate despot of a backwater country, the leader apparently keeps company with masked gunmen and killer dogs, which he thinks is really, really macho, despite the fact that he looks like a man desperately trying to placate a vicious dog who is too near his nuts for comfort. He could be a prisoner in this shot. But what a new low as an image for the 'western democracy' this is, just ludicrous and incredibly revealing of a psychologically inadequate man desperately wanting to appear like a tough guy - and of course betraying himself as a pathetically weak wannabe dictator. The lack of self-awareness is stunning. Are all the mirrors in Israel crazy mirrors which reflect back the fantasies of the subject?

  • Caroline Glick melts down with European diplomats
    • Gurning: the distortion of one's facial features into grotesque and gruesome shapes, a tradition which is celebrated in Yorkshire with gurning contests; also continual whining and complaining, similar to children who hope to garner attention and elicit sympathy.

  • Collective punishment of 1.8 million human shields in a prison -- Newsweek dares publish the truth of Gaza
    • What an incredible image she ends with: teenagers digging in the dark in order to plant a clementine tree. The slimmest, most slender symbol of hope for the future in the most benighted and devastated of circumstances. How poignant that is, an almost futile gesture, ranged as it is against the overwhelming military might and savage cruelty they suffer, and yet, because of its fragility, there is a kind of quiet dignity and undiminished sense of humanity under all that deprivation and slaughter.
      She joins Paul Mason and Jon Snow, as far as UK writers are concerned, in doing what you would expect reporters should routinely do - give eyewitness accounts, be witnesses and speak for those who haven't the means to speak for themselves. This shouldn't be remarkable or unusual, and it is surely a measure of how feeble and cowed most of the media has become, as they accustom us to accepting the destruction of populations in the name of 'security', torture, drone killings and all the rest of the 'war on terror'.
      Honesty and clear-eyed reporting like this is a light in that darkness. It is only a sign of how corrupted we are that it merits a wide-eyed mention that she didn't have to incorporate a feeble, mealy mouthed apology/justification for the slaughter from the Central Bureau of Newspeak. Which in its own way tells you how poorly served and misrepresented most of the world is.

  • Palestinian minister dies after Israeli army assault during olive tree planting ceremony in West Bank village
    • The tin soldier and his compadres couldn't care less about the truth, especially as it sounds like he was framed, like so many others. He's Palestinian, that makes him both guilty and expendable in their eyes.
