  • On the use of provocative analogies (Nazism, fascism)
    • I'm often impressed by the articles put out here and the daily reports from Palestine that help to bring awareness to the depth of suffering of the Palestinian people and others in the region such as those in Lebanon and even in Syria and which articles ultimately help advance globally just an inch more the cause of these victims of Zionist occupation, Zionist interference and aggression.

      But when I read individuals like Slater here I think: this is Zionism creeping in here again; and this is: hasbara lite! Every time this kind of Zionist tool-like interpretation of reality gets published a step is taken backwards to whitewash Zionism or rescue it from the necessary fall that it is destined for.

      Israel is well on its way to fascism[...]Nonetheless, because Israel has gone so far down the road to fascism (not Nazism), the risks must be run...

      I'm sooooo tired of those who want to save Israel from itself. It's maddening to think that there's something worthy about Zionism that deserves saving when it's so clear there's not! And it's those who say stuff like it's not as bad as Nazism, it's not there yet who refuse to see the truth about Zionism when it's staring them in the face over and over again!

      But what if Palestinian attacks continue, which in those circumstances could no longer be considered as resistance? Then–and only then– Israel would have a true right of self-defense.

      Get this through your head if you're honest about your empathy with the suffering of Palestinians, as opposed to the real mission of so-called liberal Zionists which is to rescue Israel, - so long as Zionism exists, Palestinians have every right to resist it, whether they get a so-called state of their own which would be nothing more than the grand swindle of the Century, or not.

      Zionism is and has always been founded on the combination of mythic supremacism and the crime of ethnic cleansing of the other through terrorism! So swindle consolation prize or no swindle. Palestinians must and should resist Zionism until it is defeated. I really could care less about the endless parsing and analysis of what we know is evil at first sight! That Israelis, Zionists are turning into fascists and even Nazis is really no surprise and was predictable from day one to anyone who allows truth to lead them. What really bothers me is that people still don't get that Zionism is a threat to the spiritual and moral evolution of mankind and to humanity's legitimate aspiration towards peace, because it is a serious threat, and it is proving to be so in every way. Zionism was a backward turn in history that must be corrected.

  • 'Provocative political symbol' -- UEFA fines clubs when fans fly Palestinian flags
    • But the message UEFA is sending is really this one: It's not so bad to imprison and then cripple Palestinian soccer players to terminally end their soccer career aspirations as it is to fly at soccer matches the legitimate flag of Palestine recognized as such in most international circles even propped up behind Obama when Abbas visits the WH and that many globally view as a symbol of the struggle for dignity, freedom and justice by the Palestinian people.

      I'd say unfair is an understatement. This is clear submission to political coercion and/or bribery, in other words, enabling illegal or criminal activity through staggering discrimination and bias.

    • When Zionists squeal, men in suits cower and lose all reason, and impartiality and truth are out the window. That kind of power isn't standard.

    • Start to finish...excellent!

  • Did LA pro-Israel group conceal right-wing identity from Hollywood celebs and media?
    • Without taking back a syllable except to add the e in *mor* and separate *afterall* (Where’s the edit gone to btw?); I just want to add this distinct comment: As a daughter myself and truly grateful for my sweet, precious mother, I want to say that I do earnestly feel for the loss that Joan Rivers’ daughter is experiencing, as it’s a terrible thing for anyone to lose their mother. At the same time, though, I hope she never resorts to the kind of hateful lapse her mother exhibited while innocent Palestinians were dying and that one day she will apologize on her mother’s behalf to all the Palestinian daughters who lost their own mothers in this recent massacre and in all previous and future cyclical slaughter of Palestinian civilians by the Jewish State and I hesitate to call it that.

    • Did Joan Rivers belong to this group? Too bad her final act had to be her grotesque apathy towards the countless civilians slaughtered by Israel in Gaza. I wonder if she'll be shown the same mercy and compassion on the other side that she offered Palestinian children? I only feel sorry she wasn't given the chance to face all those 500 or more mutilated Palestinian children and babies so she could perhaps admit she was ignorant and wrong and that they were human after all and once had IQs despite their captivity and didn't deserve to die that way. What a crazy, upside-down world we live in when a comedian who spews something so hateful gets a wall-to-wall eulogy on the media and 500+ innocent massacred children and countless mor civilians get nothing.

      Words don't matter, some say?

      But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.

      Joan's jokes and quotes are getting all the attention now, but what about her famous last quote?

      You’re dead, you deserve to be dead!... and shortly thereafter...

      Not just words afterall. She can never take it back now.

      Never dishonor the innocent dead.

  • Watch: Huge pro-BDS Palestinian flag unfurled on Manhattan Bridge
  • Democratic Party leader echoes Netanyahu's new theme: Hamas equals ISIS
    • This is the same man who said 9/11 was very good for Israel and the same man who lied about the deaths of the 3 teenagers for political interest and the same man who incited crowds against Rabin. What do you expect? He sold his soul to Zionism.

    • Wrong, ISIS equals Zionism and Hamas equals MB. Recognize truth when it stares you down: ISIS and Zionism are in a league of their own when it comes to outdoing each other on barbaric brutality and supremacism.

      Hamas is a resistance militia, kind of like Hezbollah resisting Zionist Occupation of their land, only Hezbollah have a much better situation less vulnerable within their country and are much better armed.

    • Twisted Zionist-coerced foreign policy meant to bring down Iran, Hezbollah and Alawites in Syria gave rise to ISIS. ISIS was convenient to Zionists; the enemy of their enemy. Should ISIS continue to grow in numbers and spread through the Middle East; it will eventually become Israel's worst nightmare, which is the logical conclusion since Zionists opened this Pandora's box and unleashed these demons on the rest of the world, and IS will be back to bite them and steamroll Zionism.

      Here's the thing: these barbarians hate Christians, hate Shiite Muslims, hate Kurds but above all they hate Jews and especially Zionist Jews. Do Zionists imagine that these savages would tolerate a Zionist state in their midst or hesitate for a moment to chop them up in little pieces if challenged? Lucky for Zionists they're still distracted with establishing their Caliphate. Zionists better hope and pray that ISIS don't succeed or they'll finally meet their equal in savagery.

    • Insane bullshet. Don't justify Zionism's crimes with the crimes of others.

      Both IS and Zionism are going to end up in the same promised land; HELL.

    • Israel is worse than ISIS because it not only beheads, it cuts off the arms, legs and heads...of children.

  • Despite ravages of war, Gaza supports armed resistance to lift the siege
    • OT: Given yesterday's beheading of a journalist by ISIS; I wish there were a discussion on how Zionist-led foreign policy ESPECIALLY in regards to Syria and also Iraq and Lebanon (to destroy Hezbollah, given Hezbollah are tame next to ISIS) contributed to the rise of ISIS. This twisted Zionist influenced foreign policy obsessively focused on threatening Iran's influence in the region has lead to the rise of a barbaric regime, namely the Islamic State ie. Caliphate. So yet again Zionism leads the U.S. into another fatalistic error. When is everyone going to recognize that this paranoia-driven supremacist Zionist ideology begets only endless bloodshed and savagery? Actually, IS and Zionism deserve each other since they're both bloodthirsty, supremacist states of delusion and maybe they might just end up destroying each other. One can only dream.

  • The catastrophe inflicted on Gaza--and the costs to Israel's standing
    • Everyone take note. This piece is what I consider words NOT wasted as opposed to self-indulgent Jewish navel-gazing that goes on and on endlessly for years while so many suffer Zionism's scourge. You'd think that Jews would have figured out BY NOW that Zionism is an evil legacy, but nooooh, the self-analysis goes on and on ad nauseum at the expense of justice.

    • How proud you must be, such sadistic ingenuity!

      Sadistic ingenuity - describes Zionism to a T.

    • That's probably as much artillery as the Nazis used to take half of Poland.

    • While part of me believes he should have returned the medal long before this and been prescient enough, considering his tragic experience during the Holocaust, to NEVER support a supremacist ideology like Zionism which is what Israel which he in fact supported is founded upon; the other part of me believes that karma has a hand in this and that what happened even to his family in Gaza was meant to happen on behalf of the greater good! As cruel as this is - the world needs this kind of wake-up call and unfortunately, it is people like this man, who should never have to pay such a price, who are called upon to suffer the ultimate sacrifice to TEACH THE IGNORANTS OF THE WORLD A LESSON ONCE AND FOR ALL. I do not by any means fault this man considering the present tragedy he suffered at the hands of Zionists.

      Shame on Israel and anyone who supports Zionism and the inhumanity it breeds!

  • The Combined Jewish Appeal's deep complicity in Israeli crimes
    • I believe, that the Israel lobby helped create the clash of civlizations and the wwar with radical Islam as a justification for Israel’s ongoing war against Palestinian freedom fight….

      Ergo the war in Iraq and the proxy war in Syria that have given rise to radical Islam in the form of ISIS, or more importantly a very convenient scary excuse to sustain Zionism which is also why Netanyahu is laying the groundwork by equating Hamas with ISIS and Iran with the Islamic nuclear bomb.

      ISIS is really the acronym for Zionism's best defense.

    • Only 20?

      God forbid we surrender the responsibility for rights and justice for Palestinians to the global Jewish Community. Oh, I forgot, we have no other choice, since gentiles who take up the cause are immediately disqualified as anti-Semites by those responsible for doing practically nothing while the slaughter, theft and ethnic cleansing continue.

      You know of course it's fixed against the Palestinians and non-Jews who try to help them. As for Jews who try to help, ask yourselves this: why after so much injustice elapsed are you such a small minority within your tribe? (If you weren't you would surely have more power.) This is one time navel-gazing is permitted, but only if it's as succinct as possible and brutally honest.

  • Liberal Zionism has lost its refuge-- a plausible two-state solution
    • There is no one-state or two state at this point. There is only justice for the Palestinians and until the grave wrong done to them has been set right, everything else is irrelevant and worse a waste of time that delays justice.

    • I have to say that both are delusional. What needs to happen is for International Law to be forced on Zionism.

    • Do you honestly expect anyone to take you seriously after a convoluted comment like that?

    • No surprise to me. The final solution for Palestinians has always been an unwritten, carefully disguised, but understood part of the Zionism agenda.

    • First, I again remind everyone that there is not and has never been a so-called Liberal Zionist and we are witnessing all kinds of proof emerging to validate my assertion.

      After finally reading Slater's article today, and especially his Conclusion; I have come to my own following conclusion: If Jews spent less time trying to save Israel and more time fighting for Palestinian rights and justice; the Palestinians would be free of the scourge of Zionism; would be enjoying rights on their land today and the refugees would be returning to their land.

      Aside from the monumental deception that Zionism hides behind; it can also count on the monumental hypocrisy of Jews trying to save Israel from itself wasting time by writing endless ethical tomes on the subjet and then wasting even more time gazing at the Jewish navel from the ethical perspective.

  • 'A blind evil rage that increased forever, day and night' --Mads Gilbert on Operation Protective Edge
    • Just thank-you for your humanity and courage. Every word you write resonates as truth in an ocean of Zionist hasbara lies.

      I feel rage at having to witness Israelis wreak destruction and death on Gaza with impunity because they refuse to submit to confinement in a concentration camp.

      War crimes were committed in Gaza by Israelis and they must be prosecuted.

    • Israel has been trying to find a just dispensation of these territories ever since, which would somehow reconcile Israeli security needs with legitimate Palestinian aspirations. This has been difficult to do for a variety of reasons, not enough space here to mention.

      Not enough space huh? Let me do the honors: LAND THEFT year after year is the only reason Israel has not found just dispensation! And I laugh out loud at your usage of just as nothing Israel does regarding the Palestinians is just!

      And you think Hamas are genocidal psychopaths? We just witnessed the latter dropping hundreds of bombs on Gaza! And one more thing, when you get rid of Hamas, think of this: be careful what you wish for, because ISIL might fill the void and then finally you'll have to do battle with a psychopathic army that rivals yours!

  • Gaza war gives rise to new Jewish group targeting Jewish institutions that support occupation
    • On Monday, I believe it was, after Wolf Blitzer returned from his paid vacation in Israel; I heard him complain that there were few people on the beach and in other words, almost no one frolicking in the water because of the threat of Hamas rockets. Just imagine, Gaza militant resistance is spoiling Zionists' fun at the beach, because apparently there should be more Zionists on the beach and having a grand ol' time while Palestinians are being slaughtered on their behalf. I mean, shame on Hamas for pooping on their beach party!

    • Brian Eno's letter to America:

      I Saw a Weeping Palestinian Man Holding A Plastic Bag of Meat: It Was His Son

      link to informationclearinghouse.info

      So he's writing about America's support for Israel saying it makes no sense it just makes us look bad.

      But I would say in stronger terms that Americans are complicit with evil even merely by remaining silent, ignoring the suffering of Palestinians or trying to somehow explain it away as benefitting Jews who were once victims.

      But the worst complicity of all is the complicity that Jews have with Zionism; indeed, Zionism makes Jews look very bad. There is no reason on earth and in heaven that justifies what Zionism is doing to the Palestinians. ENOUGH!

  • War
    • Please watch this 360-degree panoramic video of the aftermath of Israel's carpet bombing of Khuza'a. This is only one small part of the damage Israel has done.

      link to telegraph.co.uk

      This is a WAR CRIME. We must never forget and never cease pushingf for justice.

  • A brief respite in Gaza
    • I hope a fund to help these people that anyone can contribute to gets established through the U.N. or some well-know charity so that can't be later be used by the U.S. government to harrass activists/supporters of Gaza's people under Obama's material support for terrorism legislation.

      Gaza's going to need so much help.

      But I have to say; I don't trust Israel at all.

      I don't know if anyone viewed this on CNN today, but Wolf got his ass handed to him by a Hamas spokesperson! Lol.

      In case Wolf still hasn't read his Zionist comrade, Moshe Feiglin's, genocidal manifesto:

      link to electronicintifada.net

      In Israel, the Zio-kkk-r's get important positions in government. Mr. Deputy speaker...tell us what you're really thinking! -Genocide is the first and only thing that comes to mind. Some speak it while others in Israel just think it.

      How ironic Feiglin was chosen as speaker with so much hate to spew. How in...cite...ful!

    • I view Hamas use Palestinian civilians as human shields on par with Golda's racist quote Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.

      Both these supremacist lies are intended to dehumanize the occupied and make the occupier look real civilized and superior.

    • Hasbara trashed? Break out the champagne - this is cause for celebration around here! Your response was on point, but here's what I believe: hasbara minions/trolls get sadistic pleasure when everyone responds successively on the defensive.

      Here's my one-time response to all hasbara trolls: racist trash. Anything more dignified is pearls to swine.

  • israel is the golden calf
    • israel the idol.
      israel the false G-d.
      israel the golden calf.
      [...]
      and G-d is
      a child in Gaza

      Wow. We all feel this to be true.

      Powerful from beginning to end.

      I wish it could convert Jews under the spell of Zionism, but alas, they are lost and the Zionist Pharoah's heart is evermore hardened. It's too late; too much damage has been done. Somehow, I feel they already sealed their fate.

  • "There's nothing exceptional or heroic about a Jew standing against Zionism'
    • I think there is, especially among Jews who have had a lifetime of Zionist indoctrination. Much of it connected with positive experiences of security, belonging, etc...

      Exactly, a sheltered existence and positive experiences and therefore there's no excuse for Zionists not demonstrating humanity towards others. It's not like an abused child who has a terrible childhood and then grows up to abuse and/or hurt or kill someone; even such an individual does not get a pass by society, so less so for someone who has no excuse for their inhumanity towards others.

      So there is great wisdom and more importantly humility in Lucas Koerner's words. Indeed...There's nothing exceptional or heroic about a Jew standing against Zionism. It should be second-nature for anyone with a heart; compassion should be second-nature and Zionism is the antithesis of compassion; to be shunned outright.

      It is our human responsibility to say no to an ideology or situation that causes so much suffering in others. It should be second-nature to stand up and turn one's back on oppression, occupation, ethnic cleansing and the massacre of so many so that others can reap the benefits of the great loss and tragic heartbreak of the oppressed. This is what many Jews are deliberately ignoring.

      No one's asking Jews to stand in front of an IDF bulldozer demolishing a home in Rafah; no one's asking Jews to stand in front of a child who's about to be riddled with bullets by an IDF sniper; THAT'S EXCEPTIONAL HEROISM; all we're asking is for Jews to say NO! to Zionism, and all it takes is an act of genuine compassion and selflessness, but please, let's not confuse our basic responsibility as human beings when faced with the suffering of others with a courageous act that goes above and beyond what most humans are capable of. That's what makes acts of bravery exceptional. Rachel Corrie was exceptional. Thomas Hurndall was exceptional. But a Jew renouncing and rejecting Zionism is not exceptional; it's a moral obligation.

  • Israel shells another UN school-- and even the US is 'appalled'
    • Israel is a terrorist state existing only because it ethnically cleansed over a million Palestinians through terrorist acts that destroyed their villages. Israel continues to ethnically cleanse the West Bank and East Jerusalem, demolished tens of thousands or more homes to make way for a Jewish state and robbed Palestinians of a state of their own only to populate this stolen land with radical Zionist Jews who dream only of exterminating Palestinians. Netanyahoo is trying to make that happen. He’s a war criminal and the only way to get justice for all the dead civilians of Gaza and the carpet bombing of so many homes of an impoverished, severely deprived, captive people is to never forget what he’s doing in Gaza and to fight like hell to have his ass hauled off to prison where he belongs.

      I once said Netanyahoo, left to his own devices, is the most dangerous man on the planet. He’s proving me right.

      The excuse that this is but an assault on Gaza’s resistance militia is but a pretext for an act of genocidal destruction of Palestinians. We all know this; we’re all thinking this as every day the kill quota increases with no end in sight. Genocidal intent is what’s driving this assault. This is why shelters, hospitals, ambulances, open air markets and mosques are repetitive targets. This is why the power plant was hit to punish the population, cripple hospitals and contaminate water. This is why thousands of homes were leveled and or shelled by Israeli forces. Israelis wants no permanence for Palestinians and they hate the UN relief agencies that help to create permanence and survivability for them. Israel has a two-pronged solution for the Palestinian problem: force them out and/or let them expire by imposing inhumane conditions on them or massacre them.

      We know that Israel is committing a crime against humanity. Now that the U.N. feels it too is a target; we must seize this moment and press for justice like never before. These Zionist criminals must be prosecuted this time around.
      They must be stopped; this can never happen again. The people of Gaza could never sustain another massacre like this. They have been beaten down so much. Gaza needs the world to seek justice and set it free.

  • 'Dear American Jewish community, It's time to talk about Zionism'
    • Do you renounce Zionism??? YES OR NO?

      Never mind calling others racist. If you don't renounce this bloody legacy built on crimes against others, then you are part of the problem and you are the racist. Get it? Since you're trying to accuse 'just' of being racist -- I'll expect an answer to my question, thank-you.

  • Israeli military announce they will bomb al-Shifa hospital in Gaza
    • First let's get one thing straight - this captured Ziosoldier is a POW; he was NOT, I repeat, not, kidnapped.

      Second, this revenge threat of carpet bombing also constitutes a war crime, but if Israel dares to wreak vengeance on the civilians of Gaza - it seals its fate. North Korea will have more legitimacy than Israel.

    • This threat also constitutes a war crime. And we will pray.

  • Portrait of a Zionist
    • John Legend, Russell Brand, Javier Bardem, Selena Gomez and others - rocking the truth!

      U.S. Foreign Policy Manual damage control instruction No. 1-

      1. Get on your knees and grovel for forgiveness from your real master Israel for trying to spare civilian lives.

  • 'Is the Zionist dream based on the repeated slaughter of civilians?'
    • The precise quote: *Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.*

    • Is the Zionist dream based on the repeated slaughter of civilians?’

      Yessssssssssssssssssssssssssss!

      And there is no such thing as the Zionist dream; there is only the Zionist nightmare. Zionism is evil. Zionism is a supremacist ideology disguised as a Jewish colonial experiment which is bad enough! Zionism is much more than that; it's a monumental crime against humanity happening in the 21st Century demonizing the victims of this crime and committing cumulative genocide through a series of inhumane stratagems meant to degrade the lives of these people until they collapse and die!

      These Palestinian victims have been stripped of their humanity and are being massacred under a catiously-worked plan of cumulative genocide. When you add up all the tactics Israel uses against the Palestinian people to deprive them, degrade their life, oppress and then repeatedly destroy and slaughter--what does it all add up to? GENOCIDE! It's time to call a spade exactly what it is!

      Zionism follows its own devious playbook to fudge the law and rules of war.

      Example: Israel calls the capture of a military prisoner kidnapping when it happens to their side, and it calls it terrorist capture or prisoner of war when they do it to others. Israel tries to finagle International Law to be able to murder civilians repeatedly by pretending that if the enemy (in a crowded, urban environment) fires even a hundred meters or more from a civilian shelter; it has the legitimate right to bomb that shelter. There is no legitimacy here whatsoever - it's a war crime, pure and simple! Israel pretends that its Apartheid system is legit; an Apartheid system that is part of a wider plan to degrade life, to torment and torture to the point of exhausting and choking life in Gaza and the West Bank.

      When is the world going to apply the rule of law with the criminal state of Israel like it does with everyone else that tries to defy the law by imposing serious sanctions? Are we to believe that the Law is for everyone or not?!

      An injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere! MLK - Set my people free.

      What Israel is doing is an injustice and an affront to all humanity!

  • 'Children killed in their sleep': Israeli artillery fire hits UN school, killing at least 20
    • Thank you for your response. I do hope you get to the others, as I put a lot into them. But I appreciate what you do here.

    • For everyone great and small, powerful and not-so-much; stop and think about this simple and yet profound fact: The people of Gaza; men, women, children and even Hamas are willing to go as far as be slaughtered in their sleep by Israel's bombs to have the barbaric inhumane blockade Israelis have imposed on their concentration camp, lifted.

      The men, women and children of Gaza including Hamas are willing to dig, scratch and claw away the earth inch by inch underground into tunnels, day after day for months and years, tunneling away with no end in sight, to resist the inhumanity Zionists have imposed on them with the blockade and occupation. Just imagine their level of desperation and yet strength to carry on? I can't - it's inconceivable to me.

      And this is for Zionists of all stripes, because all share responsibility for prolonging the suffering of Palestinians, on the right, non-existent left and center and you too Scarlett and I don't mean, O’Hara: if you think there’s no punishment in God’s earth for the pain you're inflicting on innocents with such a despicable crime as to rob people of their humanity to this extent; then you might just believe there’s nothing and no one superior to you and you fear no one, and nothing, not the rule of law, not even God.

      But most of us who live on this planet know that there is punishment in this life for wickedness; whether it's sent by God or some karmic force.

      So God help those who rob men, women and children of their humanity to such a degree as to force them to resort to such desperate acts as digging, clawing and scratching for their humanity and then, after surviving yet another day in the years of inhumanity forced upon them, lay down in their homes and even in shelters, where from experience, they know they're not really safe, and wait for Israel to murder them rather than cower before Zionism and surrender their will to be free!

      If you Zionists really believe you'll celebrate any kind of victory after you've committed these barbaric acts against a deprived, repeatedly persecuted and captive people whose spirit is so much more resilient and who are more resourceful than you foolishly calculated them to be, then you're even more delusional than I ever imagined. God help you Zionists, and those who grovel to help you deceive the world to commit a crime of this magnitude.

      And one more thing, you know the expression: It's not the crime; it's the cover-up?

      The magnitude of that cover-up/deception that allowed this to go on for this long will determine your fate and in my opinion, this is the most monumental deception know to man! And here’s a question you have yet to decipher: What kind of people deprived of so much for so long are able to resist getting crushed repeatedly by one of the most heavily-armed nations in the world and its enabler the most powerful nation in the world having nowhere to run like other refugees? Oh and you Zionists may have better doctors, the latest medical equipment and fully-stocked hospitals, but Gaza's doctors are unpaid, unsung heros and with so little doing God's work in hell!

      Finally, the men, women AND children of Gaza, because so many in Gaza are children; I’m in awe of you – you are in my prayers and in my heart.

    • Yes, there is a serious moral challenge here for Jews: Do you succumb to primitive, irrational fear and shape the world into the image of those fears as is happening through evil towards others: ethnic cleansing, death and destruction justified through deception, or do you act on behalf of your humanity, admit that a grave injustice happened on your behalf and reverse that injustice not only for the sake of the Palestinians, but for the sake of all mankind?
      Some analysts think that if Israel destroys Hamas; Hamas will be replaced by ISIS. If that’s the case, which is based in precedent, since every time Israel destroys a Palestinian resistance group it refuses to negotiate with; a more rigid resistance emerges, we will definitely end up with a case of two parties with genocidal intent and believe me it’ll end badly for all. There’s no doubt in my mind that Zionists stupidly see such an outcome i.e. a clash of civilizations as the end game giving Zionists and their enablers total hegemony in the Middle East.
      Or is alluding to ISIS as being a potential threat for Israel merely disturbing psy-ops propaganda intended to demonize the Palestinian people by Sunni/Islam association in order to justify murdering civilians because they are ISIS-associated, or worse to make appear to the world as Israelis see the Palestinians - Amalek?
      Here’s an even bolder theory: If Israel is the cradle of Christian Civilization will it end up being the graveyard of Judaism? Imagine that this is what Christian Zionists are trying to induce intentionally or unintentionally: they and their predecessors create a fantasyland, i.e. promised land to indulge Zionists in the midst/heart of the Muslim world that lures Jews in droves and fill it up with a false sense of security; hi-tech weapons and a nuclear arsenal, and decades later as a result of some karmic reversal/detriment Judaism comes to an end through, Zionism, an irresistible force based on greed/lust for land, crimes against others, and shocking inhumanity that sets in motion a self-fulfilling prophecy of destruction. Remember, that the nuclear arsenal Israel has cannot be used if the threat is mere kilometers away unless of course Israelis want to annihilate themselves in the process of totally destroying the enemy. So why is it not all Zionists prefer to live in Israel, but yet keep pushing this humungous blunder forward? Are they using their Israeli counterparts as guinea pigs or something in the Zionism experiment?

    • Again my corrected version disappeared somewhere, sooo this is the one I intended:

      If the ICC takes up this case, and I know there will be all kinds of manipulation, coercion and even threats to suppress it; but if they have the guts to go ahead with this; then those innocent civilians: men, women and children will have died so that their people can have justice and maybe that first victory; which impact will be felt worldwide will lead to greater reparation and finally freedom. Theirs is the greatest of all sacrifices and we all owe it to those innocents; the persecuted under this brutal occupation, to fight for that justice with the truth. One can only hope they didn’t die such a brutal death in vain as so many before them did; but hope is not enough.

      I wrote a comment at 6:57 that still hasn’t shown up. Maybe, it’s an oversight.

      Whether it’s posted or not, I know what I wrote is the truth; it’s brutal; it’s ugly; and it might be inflammatory, but it’s still the truth: this hi-tech military assault on Gaza’s people is the product of collective genocidal intent revived by supremacist ideology. Do we have the luxury, while so many innocents are dying, to pussyfoot around with people’s sensitivities, when for the most part those feelings are based on extreme selfishness and inhumanity, and irrational paranoia and hubris?

      Before Allison wrote her Gaza – Guernica piece, I was the first to make that intuitive connection (check my comment history). I never mentioned that on her thread because I was just very glad she picked up on it; I didn’t want to boast in that context. She got it too; and I believe all things happen for a reason – I’m a believer in prophetic occurrences.
      As far as the bombing of the open air market in Gaza yesterday, there were dead horses and donkeys everywhere aside from the slaughtered humans. – this tragedy that occurred yesterday is prophetic symbolism. By prophetic, I don’t mean wacky, I mean that this tragic incident happened after it was first envisioned by drawing an intuitive connection to a similar historical event. This marketplace bombing reinforced that intuitive connection/analogy; perhaps because the universe is begging us to SEE it this way! When life imitates art validating intuition it’s the ah-ha moment meant to draw everyone’s attention to see a pattern; to make us get it–truth. This powerful silent message translates; this is a sign, a prophetic sign, to STOP the madness that this state, Israel, is descending into. Remember, this marketplace bombing happened when people were unsuspectingly getting food DURING THE TRUCE, and I made the Guernica analogy that has the unsuspecting civilians in a marketplace as the main theater of attack by the Nazis BEFORE yesterday’s marketplace bombing happened in Gaza, a sign that we are correct to assume the worst about what’s happening in Israel. It’s like the universe saying: this happened to validate the threat you perceive; it’s real; you’re 6th sense was 100% correct; believe it and tell it like it is before it’s too late. But I guess, Jews are not ready to hear the truth.

      We all know there’s a monumental deception happening with regards to Israel and Zionism that only the truth will defeat, but if we suppress what we’re perceiving intuitively; if we think: nawwwh, it can’t be; that’s not what’s happening here…history repeating itself, dare we express it? True it can go either of two ways, both disastrous. Either Zionists/Israelis are turning into their own worst fear—supremacist monsters, OR they’re bringing on what they fear by using evil to get what they want. If we deny this is a collective descent into the insanity of supremacist ideology, and indulge it because we fear Zionist methods of suppressing truth; then we are complicit not only with the destruction of Palestinians but also with the eventual destructions of Jews. What if supremacy with inhumane/genocidal intent; triggers self-destruction or decimation?

      The greatest challenge to the truth is that Zionists have a weapon almost as powerful as the truth ready to defeat it and this is also why Israeli Apartheid is much worse than South African Apartheid. The Afrikaners weren’t able to : milk the most tragic reference in their recent history together with fear stoked by Islamophobia to legitimize their Apartheid. Using such a reference ramped up with Islamophobia to suppress the truth, destroy the lives of others, and even the reputations of those critical of this injustice and then to shield evil with is a serious detriment ESPECIALLY if Jews are enjoying unprecedented security and material success in the Diaspora which makes the deception to justify genocidal intent, i.e. a collective mindset driven by racist fear that spawns hatred, even more destructive and irrational to say the least.

      There is a serious moral challenge here for Jews, in other words only two choices here: good or evil and genocidal intent is definitely not based on the former, and no, there is no “Zionist liberal” choice that converts Zionism into something good that everyone can run to for cover, because that choice is not reality-based, defies all fact, logic and empirical history.

      Only rectifying the past and present wrong (understatement) done to Palestinians will bring peace and that means the end Zionism, if the intention was for Israel to be a Jewish State. I wonder what Jews would choose if the moral question were as follows: Either you choose the end of Zionism or the end of Judaism? What’s it gonna be? I suspect that it’ll boil down to this dilemma; but let’s not forget; Zionism is an irresistible magnetic force, as in, the most powerful temptation for Jews since the apple was same to Eve, so…(to be continued)

    • If the ICC takes up this case, and I know there will be all kinds of manipulation, coercion and even threats to suppress it; but if they have the guts to go ahead with this; then those innocent civilians: men, women and children will have died so that their people can have justice and maybe that first victory; which impact will be felt worldwide will lead to greater reparation and finally freedom. Theirs is the greatest of all sacrifices and we all owe it to those innocents; the persecuted under this brutal occupation, to fight for that justice with the truth. One can only hope they didn't die such a brutal death in vain as so many before them did; but hope is not enough.

      I wrote a comment at 6:57 that still hasn't shown up. Maybe, it's an oversight.

      Whether its posted or not, I know what I wrote is the truth; it's brutal; it's ugly; and it might be inflammatory, but it's still the truth: this hi-tech military assault on Gaza’s people is the product of collective genocidal intent revived by supremacist ideology. Do we have the luxury, while so many innocents are dying, to pussyfoot around with people's sensitivities, when for the most part those feelings are based on extreme selfishness and inhumanity, and irrational paranoia and hubris?

      Before Allison wrote her Gaza - Guernica piece, I was the first to make that intuitive connection (check my comment history). I never mentioned that on her thread because I was just very glad she picked up on it; I didn’t want to boast in that context.

    • Today Zionists have proven that this slaughter in Gaza is indeed an intended genocidal massacre and their own words and polls prove this and it's uncanny how this carpet bombing of Gaza is similar to the Nazi carpet bombing of Guernica when in 1937 they hit a marketplace and other areas killing scores of civilians even though the resistance barracks were mere kilometers away. Well, today Zionists bombed a marketplace killing at least 17 civilians and injuring close to 200. But they also bombed yet another U.N. shelter containing 3000 innocent civilians, children sleeping beside their mothers and caused a bloodbath there. All in all the civilian kill quota for today was 100 with hundreds injured i.e. maimed, blinded, burned, scarred by shrapnel for life, etc.

      Now here's proof of the Zionist intention: A poll was just conducted among Israeli Jews not Arabs, Jews, and 95%, yes, the overwhelming majority of Jews say, keep bombing Gaza, don't stop pounding them, and noooo more truce. And they interviewed Zionists on the beach, in shopping malls and cafes - all having a grand ol' time, while Palestinians are being butchered just next door, and each and every one said, bomb ALL Gaza, bomb everything, and keep pounding them. So as you can see - GENOCIDE - is on the mind of these Zionist Jews in Israel.

      Maybe we should poll the Zionists in the Diaspora as well - see what they're thinking. After all, the pro-Israel rallies have thousands of Jews while the end-the-massacre-in-Gaza only have hundreds of them participating.

      So methinks that Zionists are on a mission in Palestine: to wipe it off the planet because they neither have nor want any other solution, no two-state solution, no one-state solution, ONLY the final solution comes readily to mind.

      Everyone knows however and, it's no suprise that supremacist ideologies always lead to this final type of solution.

      But here's the thing. Today Zionists asked the U.S. for more munitions, bombs to continue this genocidal massacre of mostly innocent civilians and guess what? You're paying for it with your hard earned money! Yes, the complicit U.S. government said OF COURSE we'll give you more weapons. Even though it's against International Law to supply weapons to a country commiting WAR CRIMES.

      Never again? Don't you know???...for Jews only.

      Zionism has spawned racist war criminals and the U.S., Canada, the EU and even the UN are complicit with their crimes.

      THE TRUTH, and everyone knows it.

  • More voices describe Gaza slaughter as a 'genocide'
    • Please, pls post this edited version that got lost in transmission:

      Today, we all have something in common with Israel - we are all anti-Semites.

      Indeed, didn’t Penelope and Javier ask themselves why Israel, widely assumed to possess stockpiles of thermonuclear warheads, didn’t just decide to nuke Gaza if they want a genocide?

      link to jpost.com

      Indeed! Here's a simple answer to a dumb question.: It appears Israel is not yet ready for the Samson option. Try dumping thermonuclear warheads on Gaza without nuking a part of Israel as well and sending a cloud of death for miles.

      On the subject of hypocrisies; it's nice to see a Zionist mentioning genocides other than the Holocaust, now if only Zionists would remember every year who else besides Jews were murdered as an ethnic, gender, disabled or national group in the Holocaust and I'm talking in all the media and everywhere else.

      Someone should tell the Love Rabbi that there's such a thing as genocidal intent whereby you create a series of deadly and harmful circumstances and conditions that degrade life and eventually kill it and as far as crimes against humanity go - it's no small potatoes.

      But here's what makes what Zionists are doing to Palestinians worse than some of those other genocides without diminishing the depth of human suffering of any of them in any way.: THE COVER UP, i.e. the monumental deception designed to keep carrying on crimes against humanity.

      I don't doubt that, any human being outraged by what's happening in Gaza and to the Palestinians in general probably has a heart that has at some point been deeply moved by those other genocides, the Holocaust included, but what's different about this crime against Palestinians is that here we have what are supposedly the most moral countries in the world who consider themselves the beacons of liberty, human rights and morality (excuse me a moment while I gag as I write): the U.S. and EU and some of their allies silent as people are slaughtered repeatedly in Gaza (and in the West Bank albeit more recently in smaller numbers) over the years by Israel and subjected to inhumane conditions while imprisoned on a small strip of land, a concentration camp where they scratch, claw and dig tunnels to survive and resist and then lay down in their homes or shelters once again knowing they may never wake up again because their head and limbs might be scattered all over the place under the rubble the next day after Israel indiscriminately crushes their home with a 1000 pound bomb dropped as part of yet another bombing raid or military Operation on Gaza.

      Here's the thing, it's been a long time since anyone's deceived the world for so long regarding this much injustice. I cried during The Killing Fields and Shoah and couldn't believe the most moral countries in the world did nothing to stop the Rwanda genocide. I cursed Milosovic and his war criminal henchmen every day. But here's the thing: no one who mattered ever said, Nazi Germany was a beacon to that part of the world and had the most moral army and ditto for Serbia and the others. No, these genocides were condemned, the nations who perpetrated them were condemned by all Western countries and others, their leaders were condemned in most cases and in some prosecuted and in the case of the Holocaust some put to death, and the world expressed empathy for the victims in many different ways, through memorials, prayer, art, media etc..

      But in Palestine and presently Gaza's case - we have been relegated to the web to speak out, cry out the truth because our leaders grovel before the war criminals in Israel and our media is complicit in covering up their crimes! And those of us who do this are labelled anti-Semites, hypocrites, siding with terrorists and so on.

      The Rabbi should know that you don't have to write a book, make a film, make your empathy a public spectacle or attend a formal memorial to honor the victims of genocide, some of us remember with a moment of silence in privacy, others light a candle and say a prayer. Some of us watch a film or read the book others wrote to remember while others still rage against God for allowing such a terrible thing to happen; but the best way OF ALL to honor the victims of all those terrible genocides is to STOP another genocide from happening, stop the deception that fuels it and make the world a better place!

      And when I see those sheets rain down out of the sky to warn Gaza's civilians of an imminent bombardment; I don't think it's meant to save lives; I wasn't born yesterday. I think to myself, Israel is covering its ass.

    • Karl Penhaul at CNN had a video report where he put his hand through a hole in a car and stated: Just look at the hole this shrapnel has blasted in this car door imagine the damage that that would do to a child's body.

      We don't have to imagine, there is ample proof and if you go to Desertpeace, you'll see exactly what it did to a particular small child; it blew away half his/her head.

      I'll add the link. It is so shocking I can't view it ever again, but this is what needs to be presented to a war crimes tribunal.

      It's under the headline: Photo of Gazan terrorist bombed by Israel.

      link to desertpeace.wordpress.com

      This and a photo of Mohammed Abu Khdeir's desecrated body are what needs to be circulated attached to Aipac's next suggested policy letter to Congress!

      The Israelis latest move was to bomb fuel for the main generator that cuts electricity and stops water pumps from functioning. This is punishing for the entire population of Gaza already undergoing unconceivable suffering.

      In a U.N. not corrupted by a U.S. tyrannical veto; severe sanctions would be imposed on Israel just for these crimes, both of which are due to deception from Israel's leadership and a direct result of Zionism's influence.

      SANCTION ISRAEL AND END THIS GENOCIDAL MASSACRE

    • So there were 10,000 Jews at that pro-Israel rally, and only at most a few hundred at the protest for Gaza. Here's the problem: for every Jew with empathy for the suffering of Palestinians and especially with conviction that Zionism is the source of the suffering; there are 100 Jews who embrace Zionism and care less regarding the pain it causes others. For every ten there are 1000 who care less and so on.

      Sure there is a small middle overlap somewhere in there - but they're the liberal Zionists who although they have sympathy for the Palestinians can't see or refuse to see that Zionism is the source of all the pain and evil and therefore help to prolong it.

  • Video: Celebrities, artists and activists call for Palestinian freedom in #GazaNames project

  • Statement: Legal experts and human rights defenders demand international community end Israel's collective punishment of Gaza
    • Israeli thug military took out the power in Gaza, Gaza is in darkness, and the thugs are sending down flares and more bombing. Israel is nothing but a criminal state on stolen land killing the people they robbed in a genocidal massacre.

      By the way, Karl Penhaul deserves the Pulitzer Prize for reporting, he's been outstanding with the truth!

    • CNN reported on the Jewish Leadership National Assembly where both parties Democrats and Republicans were gushing bipartisan support for Israel's campaign of war crimes in Gaza.

    • CNN is showing bipartisan show of support for Israel's war crimes at Jewish Leadership National Assembly.

    • The Israelis committed another war crime today striking the main Shifa hospital in Gaza and Al-Shati refugee camp, also known as Beach Camp with children playing on the streets! 8 children and two adults killed, 40 injured. The children who survived were interviewed by journalist, Karl Penhaul, and claim they heard the zanana a DRONE before the strike happened.

      Once again, as with the U.N. school incident, Israel is claiming it was Hamas rockets. But Hamas say they have proof, pieces of the Israeli weapon/bomb used.

  • Gaza-- and 'Guernica'
    • War criminals.

    • But it hasn't suggesed that Hamas bombed itself

      Are you kidding me? You hasbarists have been blaming the mostly civilians casualities in Gaza on Hamas on every media outlet!

      Gaza is a city crammed with CIVILIANS. They don't need to be outside - your 500-1000 lb. bombs can pulverize concrete housing dozens of civilians taking cover!

    • Bullshet. The town was bombed because it had great symbolic and cultural significance to Basques. The bombing was meant to crush the resistance's spirit. It also housed two resistance battalions and a munitions factory. It was also 30 kilometers from the region's front lines.

      You can bet that any Palestinian town with these characteristics would be in Israel's crosshairs!

    • Correction: the town had a population of around 7,000 and there were 2 resistance batallions stationed there and an arms/munitions factory. It was also 30 kilometers from the front lines.

    • Clueless. Gernika was not a donkey town. It was a town of 5,000 or more and by 1937 standards for a Spanish town; it was quite significant. Gernika was an ancient cultural town and considered the cradle of Basque culture. The town was singled out by Colonel Wolfram von Richthofen of the German Air Force for bombardment, so it had to have great significance to the Basque Region and in particular the Basque Resistance. This bombardment was meant to crush the resistance against Franco.

      After the bombing Franco later blamed the bombing on resistance saboteurs stating that they dynamited the town. Which is exactly what Israel does; blame everything on the Palestinian resistance.

So they knew the civilians were there; they ignored their request for time and they didn't care squat! And they fired away anyway. Besides, they lied from the day this school was hit trying to lay the blame on Hamas.

      War crime.

    • I hope you're right. But fyi, the assault on Gaza's civilians is not over. Israelis are still bombing away there. It appears they haven't met the kill quota yet.

      Have you protested the "Death to Arabs" graffiti your comrades are spray painting everywhere? Have you demonstrated against the price tag hate crimes they commit against Palestinians?

  • Claim that Hamas killed 3 teens is turning out to be the WMD of Gaza onslaught
    • First, I wish this article were the lead story on the main page. Getting to the bottom of Netanyahoo's deception in regards to who really killed the 3 teens and when is crucial in seeking justice for the horrific crimes committed in Gaza and on the West Bank in the past month.

      So let's start to slice through the fat and get to the meat on this.

      Lest we forget, and we must never forget Mohamed Abu Khdeir and must ensure he did not endure that torture in vain; I'm glad Shingo brought him up in this sentence.:

      Just like Netanyahu did not order the burning alive of Mohamed Abu Khdeir.

      Did he or didn't he, that is the question? What did he do prior to this hate crime and act of vengeance against this boy and prior to the act of vengeance and war crimes taking place against Gaza? Parsing through what he did and said prior to this crime is fundamental to mounting a criminal case against Benjamin Netanyahoo, certain war criminal.

      And while analyzing the facts leading up to this tragedy and others, we should keep in mind the following:

      1. Motive i.e. benefit to be gained by Netanyahoo and Israel, and
      2. Netanyahoo's pattern of behavior and the grave consequences of such.

      Yes, the motive may have been to destroy Fatah/Hamas unity, but much to his chagrin, it’s going in the other direction of divisiveness, and to top that boomerang, Abbas’ leadership is in serious jeopardy. And there are other motives, no doubt behind this grave deception. But, I'm going to focus on establishing pattern of behavior, with an example of one other murder fueled by incitement, because it readily comes to mind and then I will analyze motives later and cui bono as everyone should.

      In order to establish pattern of behavior we must return to the days of Netanyahoo's rise to power.

      Like Leah Rabin, I too believe Netanyahoo is a contentious liar, a corrupt individual and a monstrosity, especially the latter. These are her words from a letter written to a friend during 1998-99.

      From haaretz: Leah also stressed in her letters that her husband had always opposed the settlements and supported giving up the West Bank.

      link to haaretz.com

      So from the events happening then and Mrs. Rabin's apt description 1) Netanyahu hated Rabin's leadership and his own ambition appeared devoid of moral boundaries, and 2) Rabin had to be stopped.

      An Israeli film director told CNN on Tuesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu played a part in creating the charged public atmosphere that led to the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995.

      link to haaretz.com

      She barely shook the Likud leader's hand at Rabin's funeral, then bitterly denounced both Netanyahu and the Likud in a Cable News Network interview.

      "Surely I blame them," she told CNN. "If you ever heard their speeches, you would understand what I mean. They were very, very violent in their expressions."

      link to articles.latimes.com

      So ff present, Netanyahu lies regarding the kidnapping and killing of the 3 boys to justify a pogrom on the West Bank that subsequently leads to a horrific campaign of destructive vengeance against Gaza and uses deception and inflammatory rhetoric inciting mobs to hunt down Palestinians and commit an unspeakable act against a young Palestinian boy.

      So, the pattern of incitement to hate and violence is there and there are other examples. And we should ask: Did Netanyahoos' lies, vengeful pogrom on the West Bank and inflammatory rhetoric light the torch that those Zionist thugs used to set Mohamed Abu Khdeir on fire? And did these lies lead to the genocidal massacre and apocalyptic destruction that we are witnessing today in Gaza?

      I believe they did, and I think he's evil to the core, and I believe his lies were indeed weapons of mass destruction and he should face a war crimes tribunal and we all should help push him there.

      (P.S. I will never forgive Rabin for having deceived the Palestinian people with the Oslo Accords as no doubt he knew that settlement expansion would never end and no land would ever be surrendered to Palestinians in this deal.). He was a willing victim of Zionism and it destroyed him - as it is destroying and will destroy everything and everyone in its path; if it's prolonged.)

  • As in Vietnam and South Africa, Gazan masses are willing to pay high price for freedom -- Kasrils
    • I'm glad you brought up RS's article. I too want to highlight something I read there in the hopes that he might read this comment on some off-chance.

      I’ve devoted a good deal of my life to Israel. I’ve studied, read, visited, lived, breathed it. Not in the way diehard pro-Israel fanatics do. But in a different way that matched my own intellectual and political proclivities. It’s a subject that is rich, varied, troubling, bedeviling, and exhilarating. But every once in a while I learn something I never thought possible; and I don’t mean this in a good way.[...]

      Perhaps there’s a lingering bit of the liberal Zionist I once was here, but I’d always heard that Israel never leaves a soldier behind.

      First, RS, your description of your attachment to Israel troubles me and almost makes me nauseous, and you could be right, the liberal Zionist is still lingering in spite of all the tragic proof that has emerged regarding the evil inherent nature of Zionism since I last posted there that should have converted you by now to the other side especially now in Gaza. So I wonder, what's it going to take for you to let go completely once and for all? How many more massacres? How many more Palestinians forced to guzzle gasoline? How much more must Palestinians suffer for you to let go of the liberal Zionist fantasy that just delays justice and denies reality?

      I guess I was there at the wrong time; when you were still the confirmed liberal Zionist, that I suspect you still are though in a lesser way. I've returned to read you and watch your progress, and although you've written a few gutsy pieces that tell me you're progressing into the light, alas, I regret to say you're still not there. There's still a part of you that's hanging on.

      Speaking of liberal Zionists, is it my imagination or are they a little too silent at this time? This is definitely not a good sign. I'll make the exception for RS and forgive his lingering attachment to Zionism which can never be liberal by the way, but as for the rest of the liberal Zionists - this hell in Gaza is authored by your extraordinary intellectual prowess in selling to the world the inexistent compassionate, liberal side of Zionism that never existed and never will exist. Behold the rotten fruits of your labor in the death camp that is Gaza today.

    • The goal of finally and forever subduing the Palestinians is impossible.

      God bless them for their courage and will to survive impossible odds. I love these people! I'm in awe of their amazing strength and I know they will scratch and claw and tunnel their way to freedom inch by inch! And we must be right there with them in spirit accompanying them through the darkness they're being subjected to until they emerge free into the light. Omg! I hope it happens in my lifetime.

  • Oren's charge that networks showcase Palestinian dead at behest of Hamas is 'obscene' -- Penhaul

      Oren is part of the grotesque deception that enables such a massive crime to happen with total impunity.
