  • Video: If you voted for Hamas, Israel has a right to kill you, says president of NY Board of Rabbis
    • 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
    • This is a sickening sadistic spectacle! How can the world's leaders just sit back and do nothing while dozens more children are AGAIN going to be massacred overnight in Gaza??? Who can tolerate this inhumanity? The U.N., U.S. and EU get off your asses and end these war crimes now!!!

  • 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.

  • 9 things the American media isn't telling you about Israel/Palestine
    • Regarding the media and in this case NBC, everyone needs to check out this article at MoA and some of the comments are very good as well:

      Looks like Zionism is reaching out of Israel to take down freedom of speech and our Democracy.

      We are all Palestinians. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. - MLK (from speech Let my people go.)

  • 'Tomorrow there’s no school in Gaza, they don’t have any children left' -- Israeli chant
    • There's no limit to the racism in Israel.

      Wow! what a great job you do Kate. This thread is so valuable in understanding the vast scope of Zionist injustice.

      It's like a barrage of fact; the resistance of truth and there's nothing more powerful than truth. Bravo.

  • 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.

      All fascists are the same.

  • Destruction of Gaza's children is something 'every one of us must confront' -- Jon Snow
    • Lying pompous ass Regev torpedoed the lie that came out today that this was a supposed lone errant mortar. He says right here that they repeatedly warned the U.N. to evacuate. So they were planning to hit it all along! And when the U.N. asked for time to evacuate; they got no response. 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.

    • Your comment is so disgustingly hypocritical, twisted and artificial. It sullies the discussion and is offensive in the context of the suffering of these children maimed on Zionism’s behalf.

      Go poop your hasbara on another issue.

  • In Photos: Worldwide protest against Israeli attack on Gaza (Updated)
    • The pictures look familiar. I thought these protests happened last weekend not this one; although, I know there were protests this weekend as well.

  • Survivors of massacre in Khuza'a say Israeli forces used Palestinians as human shields
    • And today, the Zionist terrorists use 500 lb bombs.

    • Any American serving with the IDF and helping to commit war crimes there, and participating in this state-sponsored terrorism should be prosecuted and sentenced like any American aiding and abetting terrorism.

  • Pro-Israel Facebook page is titled, 'Death to Dianna Buttu'
    • And it smells of hate crime.

    • Israel has hundreds of nukes and one of the largest military arsenals. Existential for both sides my ass! The Palestinians are the ones being massacred!

    • There is only one monster responsible for this apocalyptic destruction - Zionism.

    • You reported it? I'm supposed to believe this coming from a hasbara enabler.

      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
    • Oh yeah, they really suffered those Zionists.

    • What the Israelis are doing in Gaza is an orgy of death and destruction of apocalyptic proportions and Israel is like a serial killer on steroids that just can't get enough of the bloodbath of innocents, and that took the settlers' hate graffiti Death to the Arabs seriously and made their racist dreams come true.

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

  • Raising money for Israelis being bombed in hospitals and schools, NY synagogue has not one breath for Palestinian dead
    • Let's quit with the bull and get to the heart of Zionist charity benefitting Zionist expansion to the detriment of others, shall we?

      Because never before, in the history of the modern State of Israel, has the Jewish people been so united, like one person with one heart….”

      ...of darkness.

    • The genuis and vision of Roger Waters is timeless and that bugs the hell out of you.

    • Why should anyone contribute to Zionist terrorism that destroyed Palestinian homes, took Palestinian land by force and ethnically-cleansed its occupants?

    • Israelis were bombed? On what planet?

      Oh that's right; in the Zionist twilight zone where bald-faced lies pass as truth.

  • Joan Rivers slams CNN and BBC coverage of Gaza -- 'you're all insane'
    • How about: she's VULGAR for starters and at her age, she's nothing but an old, irrelevant, loud-mouthed Zionist with one foot already in the grave. Reality bites, whether you're freakishly stretched to look 65 or whether your brain functions like a 45-year old.

    • A take on Huffpo's misleading headlines that force you to go there making you feel punked.

    • Speaking of echo chamber...Israel is the largest delusional echo chamber on the planet. Ask anyone; except a Zionist.

    • BTW. The ongoing Occupation, settlement expansion and inhumane blockade preceded the rockets.

      BTW. The jury is still out on whether they were Hamas or loosely associated or not even.

      BTW. Zionist resistance was a terrorist group according to your standards for Hamas and some occupy and occupied the highest posts in the Israeli government. So suck on that.

    • And Israel doesn't accept Palestine's right to exist ergo the repeated genocidal massacres; the inhumane blockade meant to punish an emerging generation of Palestinians; and the weekly target practice on the West Bank by the IDF to fill the kill quota. There's no concept from which Zionism can go somewhere. Zionism was dead in the water from its inception. The only thing keeping Zionism alive are war crimes and crimes against humanity on the Palestinian population.

      When are you going to learn that Zionists can't be trusted to feel genuine empathy with Palestinians?

      I'm surprised at how gullible some of you are.

      Here's an enlightening headline for y'all:

      I'm a lawyer...or I'm a Zionist lawyer. We Don't Know...Does He?

    • Page: 22
  • PLO official Hanan Ashrawi: Israel's assault on Gaza is 'state terrorism' and should be referred to the International Criminal Court
    • Israel is Afrikaner (Dutch) South Africa times 10.

      Israel has squat to stand on at this point.

    • As staggering as the injustice you just outlined in a very comprehensive manner is; it's just the tip of the iceberg of bureaucratic injustices Palestinians are subjected to, another example of which, is isolating members of the same family. I mean it would be incredulous that any other people on earth subjected to this degree of injustice would be ignored and on top of that demonized for decades as the Palestinians have been, but Zionism has achieved this level of cruelty like none other with total impunity and even protection. Sickening that world leaders are so chicken. Zionism has deprived Palestinians of all humanity to the point that they are erased by media bias, to the extent that nobody gives a damn or is afraid to do anything lest their career or reputation be be ruined and they be labelled anti-Semitic by the Zionist cabal i.e. lobbies. No one should be allowed the power to be sheltered from due prosecution.

      The Oslo Accords were a clever ruse to screw the Palestinians of a state and rights in a multitude of ways and to open the flood gates for settlement expansion.

    • The U.S. is stupidly and intentionally prolonging the suffering in Gaza by not talking to Hamas directly. The U.S. is an enabler of war crimes.

      Here's how insane these truce negotiations are:

      1. The U.S. refuses to talk to Hamas and recognize it as the democratically-elected representative of Gaza's people and an integral part of Palestinian leadership. To begin with this thick-headed position is a fail in every sense.

      2. Hamas refuses to talk to Egypt's leaders rightly-so because of their collusion with Israel on the blockade and other issues and because of their subversion of the previous democratically-elected leader of Egypt, imprisonment of MB party members and oppression of the Muslim Brotherhood.

      3. Qatar mistrusts and dislikes Egypt's leaders for same reason as Hamas.

      4. Soooo, the U.S. talks to Turkey and Egypt, Turkey in turn talks with Qatar and Qatar talks to Hamas.......how self-defeating is this! And Israel talks only to the U.S. because Turkey wants nothing to do with Israel on this issue and everyone else thinks Israel's leaders are insane.

      Today the U.S. evacuated its administrative and military personnel from the Embassy in Libya. Iraq is in danger of falling into ISIS control. ISIS is part of the rebel force in Syria; that is also in shambles thanks to hugely misguided U.S. policies; the U.S. continues to undermine and threaten Iran; a country it needs to help with the ISIS threat in Iraq. The situation in Afghanistan is tenuous at best; and will no doubt explode after U.S. military operations wind down there. The U.S. is threatening Russia; and has convinced Nato and parts of Europe to undermine threaten Russia. The U.S. is alienating Germany with aggressive spying.

      The U.S. lacks all credibility as a rational, leader on the global stage and honest broker for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

      More and more through failed foreign policy based on hubris and military force; the U.S. is alienating everyone around the world, losing trust and all credibility and is having to deal with multiple fires and blowback.

      U.S. dominance in the world is waning. Everyone needs to stop taking orders from this Zionist-influenced satellite and no, it's not the other way around because Zionism has the U.S. Congress by the cahones.

    • *unconscionable* *personally*

    • Ashrawi has also made headlines for her threats to bring Israel to the International Criminal Court over alleged war crimes in Gaza. She told me that Palestinian officials “have taken the decision” to go to the ICC.

      Talk is cheap! The PA has let down the Palestinians in numerous ways, wasted years in which the suffering of Palestinians was ignored and consequently multiplied drastically, was complicit with Israel and the U.S. in ensuring the painful status quo and allowed for the greatest Zionist land heist in Palestine's history.

      It’s a unified position.

      Why is the PA just coming to this conclusion? This is highly suspect. For years now the PA has been undermining the governing, democratically-elected party in Gaza and colluded with Israel and the U.S. to stage a brutal coup. Is this new-found kumbaya on their part perhaps due to the fact that Palestinians themselves have woken up to the lies of the PA and are forcing this unity on them? Could it be that Abbas and his party are sinking fast in the Palestinian public's perception, have lost their trust entirely and so are scrambling to make nice and restore their image at the eleventh hour?

      All the above.

      Regarding the 12-hour humanitarian truce. Just one hour before the truce was to take effect, Israel exploited this short window of time to massively carpet bomb homes and infrastructure. Some humanitarian truce!-- How do Palestinians begin to emerge from under this city of rubble and rush to get food and medical assistance? Today the MSM showed the depth of destruction in Gaza already and it looked like a Richter-scale 9 Earthquake swept through Gaza. The damage done to this very fragile, repeatedly-pounded city with the largest concentration of people per square mile is so overwhelming, gut-wrenching, savage and there are not enough words to describe this unconsionable inhumanity and the monstrosity of this destructive act by Israel.

      Israel's actions in Gaza are indeed like the Nazi carpet bombing of Gernika (same as Guernica) when Hitler stepped into the Spanish Civil War to help Franco. Gaza is today's Guernica and Warsaw all in one. Deprived of all humanity and then pounded into the ground.

      So many crimes have been committed by Israel against the Palestinian people of Gaza, starting with collective punishment of a mostly young population, i.e. with the imposition of the inhumane blockade. What Israel has done to Gaza's people is a crime and outrage against all humanity. I peronally feel violated just having to witness this massive destruction of life and property and having my need to see justice and humanity for these people frustrated again and again by our enabling leaders, the U.N. and the ICC. End this injustice now!

    • In my dreams of a free Palestine, Hanan is President and Dr. Barghouti is at her side.

      Sorry, but Hanan, whose talk is good, is tainted by her association with the PA and Abbas.

      The Palestinians deserve new blood, strong leaders with unquestionable integrity.

    • Please post this edited version that was lost in transmission.)

      The ICC stated they cannot proceed unless the Security Council agrees to the Palestinians having State status and not just observer status at the U.N. , but this is wrong and a shabby, false excuse to postpone and deny justice to not be embroiled in the mother of all legal battles that would ensue but that the Palestinians would win based on so much precedent and a mountain of evidence of war crimes for the past 66 years and counting. If such a Tribunal is organized get ready for something on the level of the Nuremburg trials, because the injustice i.e. terror and war crimes suffered by Palestinians because of Zionism is decades long!

      It's my opinion that the Court has every obligation to take this case based on the gravity of the war crimes and the repeated nature of the offenses alone. But as well, Palestine is recognized as a state globally with the exception of the U.S. and Israel, but according to the Mandate for Palestine and Resolution 181 Palestine is a state in every sense of the word and to deny this fact is to deny all reason. It matters squat that Arab states refused to recognize the Partition Resolution 181. The Resolution PASSED, the Partition was declared and binding; Israel became a state and embraced this Resolution and enjoyed all the benefits of such despite Palestinian objection to the Partition. The Partition has been forced on the Palestinians because the Resolution was BINDING, and therefore the rights of Palestinians willingly or not should be protected under such resolution. In addition, the Palestinians have suffered all the painful consequences and tragedy of the Partition and that fact also makes it binding. There is serious compensation to be awarded to the Palestinians for all breaches of the Resolution that resulted in displacement, dispossession, destruction of property and loss of life for them. And the PA should fight for such justice. Just as Zionists cannot embrace a part of the Resolution and reject another, neither can the Palestinians. Whether either party rejects parts of the Resolution is irrelevant as it is binding law in its entirety regardless of what the parties think or do. But yes, in my opinion indulging Zionism by punishing Palestinians and imposing such a Partition was the biggest mistake of all and if it could be reversed it should and Jews should be the ones to reverse this injustice. But that’ll never happen so back to reality.

      The fault is 110% with the U.N. for failing to enforce the provisions of the Resolution when it suited them regardless of U.S. pressure and for failing to protect what is the de facto State of Palestine. Israel can't have its cake; a State within Resolution 181, and eat it too, disregard the provisions i.e. responsibilities of such statehood under Resolution 181and expect the Palestinians to recognize and respect Zionist statehood. Israel's insolent and grave disregard for the provisions of the Resolution is tantamount to the Arabs rejection of the Resolution, so either the Resolution is nullified by Israel's egregious disregard for those provisions and thus Israel automatically loses its statehood and similarly Arab rejection of the State of Israel makes the Palestinians lose their protections under the Resolution and we return to a non partitioned land or the Resolution is binding in its entirety for BOTH. So, if the Resolution in regards to Israel being a state remains binding despite its breaches against Resolution 181, then the entire Resolution is binding and Palestine is already a state under law despite its rejection of the State of Israel at some points in history and must be afforded the protections and rights accordingly! This Resolution is not for the benefit of one party alone! The rule of law must be applied ONCE AND FOR ALL regarding this Resolution or there is no State of Israel to speak of!

      All along, the responsibility was with the PLO, PA, or PNA call it what you will to fight for the application of the rule of law especially after it tacitly recognized the State of Israel by submitting to the Oslo Accords because the Oslo Accords are indeed a tacit acceptance of Israel and the PA later reiterated that it recognized Israel as a state. (Never mind recognizing it as Jewish, which would be an even bigger, tragic mistake than Oslo, as this notion is already radicalizing Israel and fomenting racism and hate crimes against Palestinians and would invite greater diminishment of Palestinian rights.)

      It was the U.N.'s responsibility and the Security Council's responsibility to enforce the Resolution with both parties and apply sanctions to both parties for breaches; therefore the Security Council and especially the U.S. is in breach of the rule of law on this issue for its failure to vote sanctions for breaches of the Resolution.

      IMHO the Oslo Accords should never have happened as they created an egregious status quo for Palestinians opening the door to grave violations against Resolutions 181. Instead, the Rule of Law should have overruled such accords, and sanctions for breaches should have been imposed to bring the parties to respect the Resolution. But in regards to Oslo, I again fault the PA for having betrayed their people in so many ways, and for not having vigorously pursued justice under the protections afforded by Resolution 181 and of course I especially fault Israel and the U.S. for their serious breaches.

      Had everyone recognized the power and authority of the law we would not be in this position today. But, legal consideration must also be made for the way in which Zionists took possession of their State through terrorism and ethnic cleansing which also constitute war crimes and crimes against humanity. The Palestinian leadership has an obligation to vigorously pursue justice for its people and to challenge the premise of the court on the Palestinian statehood issue. IMHO, the PA, has been an abject failure and Palestinians deserve strong leadership that cannot allow itself to be corrupted and/or tyrannized by U.S. dollars or pressure of any kind.

      Everyone is failing the Palestinian people including the refugees who already collectively comprise a STATE and undermining their rights, and the U.N. and the ICC have an obligation to rectify this injustice! There are no excuses for not proceeding and no amount of pettifoggery by Israel's advocates should be permitted to deny the undeniable and obvious legal truth here. But before ABBAS MUST GO! A strong leadership committed to justice needs to step up for the Palestinians and fight for their rights in every venue. Justice for Palestinians is long overdue. (Understatement)

But as well, Palestine is recognized as a state globally with the exception of the U.S. and Israel, but according to the Mandate for Palestine and Resolution 181 Palestine is a state in every sense of the word and to deny this fact is to deny all reason. It matters squat that Arab states refused to recognize the Partition Resolution 181. The Resolution PASSED, the Partition was declared and binding; Israel became a state and embraced this Resolution and enjoyed all the benefits of such despite Palestinian objection to the Partition. The Partition has been forced on the Palestinians because the Resolution was BINDING, and therefore the rights of Palestinians willingly or not should be protected under such resolution. In addition, the Palestinians have suffered all the painful consequences and tragedy of the Partition and that fact also makes it binding. There is in fact serious compensation to be awarded to the Palestinians for all breaches of the Resolution that resulted in displacement, dispossession, destruction of property and loss of life for them. And the PA should fight for such justice. Just as Zionists cannot embrace a part of the Resolution and reject another, neither can the Palestinians. Whether either party rejects parts of the Resolution is irrelevant as it is binding law in its entirety regardless of what the parties think. But yes, in my opinion indulging Zionism by punishing Palestinians was the biggest mistake of all and if it could be reversed it should and Jews should be the ones to reverse this injustice. But that’ll never happen so back to reality.
      The fault is 110% with the U.N. for failing to enforce the provisions of the Resolution when it suited them regardless of U.S. pressure and for failing to protect what is the de facto State of Palestine. Israel can't have its cake; a State within Resolution 181, and eat it too, disregard the provisions i.e. responsibilities of such statehood under Resolution 181. Israel's insolent and grave disregard for the provisions of the Resolution is tantamount to the Arabs rejection of the Resolution, so either the Resolution is nullified by Israel's egregious disregard for those provisions and thus Israel automatically loses its statehood and similarly Arab rejection of the State of Israel makes the Palestinians lose their protections under the Resolution and we return to a non partitioned land or the Resolution is binding in its entirety for BOTH. So, if the Resolution in regards to Israel being a state remains binding despite its breaches against Resolution 181, then the entire Resolution is binding and Palestine is already a state under law despite its rejection of the State of Israel at some points in history and must be afforded the protections and rights accordingly! This Resolution is not for the benefit of one party alone! The rule of law must be applied ONCE AND FOR ALL regarding this Resolution or there is no State of Israel to speak of!
      All along, the responsibility was with the PLO, PA, or PNA call it what you will to fight for the application of the rule of law especially after it tacitly recognized the State of Israel by submitting to the Oslo Accords because the Oslo Accords are indeed a tacit acceptance of Israel and the PA later reiterated that it recognized Israel as a state. (Never mind recognizing it as Jewish, which would be an even bigger, tragic mistake than Oslo, as this notion is already radicalizing Israel and fomenting racism and hate crimes against Palestinians and would invite greater diminishment of Palestinian rights.)

      It was the U.N.'s responsibility and the Security Council's responsibility to enforce the Resolution with both parties and apply sanctions to both parties for breaches; therefore the Security Council and especially the U.S. is in breach of the rule of law on this issue for its failure to vote sanctions for breaches of the Resolution.

      IMHO the Oslo Accords should never have happened as they created an egregious status quo for Palestinians opening the door to grave violations against Resolutions 181. Instead, the Rule of Law should have over-ruled such accords and sanctions for breaches should have been imposed to bring the parties to respect the Resolution. But in regards to Oslo, I again fault the PA for having betrayed their people in so many ways, and for not having vigorously pursued justice under the protections afforded by Resolution 181 and of course I especially fault Israel and the U.S. for their serious breaches.

      Had everyone recognized the power and authority of the law we would not be in this position today. But, legal consideration must also been taken for the way in which Zionists took possession of their State through terrorism and ethnic cleansing which also constitute war crimes and crimes against humanity. The Palestinian leadership has an obligation to vigorously pursue justice for its people and to challenge the premise of the court on the Palestinian statehood issue. IMHO, the PA, has been an abject failure and Palestinians deserve strong leadership that cannot allow itself to be corrupted and/or tyrannized by U.S. dollars or pressure of any kind.

      Everyone is failing the Palestinian people and that includes the refugees who already comprise a STATE and undermining their rights, and the U.N. and the ICC have an obligation to rectify this injustice! There are no excuses for no proceeding and no amount of pettifoggery by Israel's advocates should be permitted to deny the legal truth here. But before ABBAS MUST GO! A strong leadership committed to justice needs to step up for the Palestinians fight for their rights in every venue. Justice for Palestinians is long overdue.

    • Abbas will be lucky if he doesn't end up like Mussolini.

    • Abbas better get out while the going is good. He's been a collaborator with Israel for a long time surrendering the farm and keeping Palestinians shackled while Israel had its way with them and their land. People are just starting to wake up to the damage he's done. I always mistrusted Abbas from day one. Israelis should start worrying; there'll be no one on the Palestinian side left to do their dirty work. Looks like Israel will have to go back to being the warden -- if it can. I see big trouble for Israel on the horizon.

      First on the agenda: A war crimes tribunal must be organized against Israel. Then Palestine seeks its full rights.

      Here's the comment I was writing:

      The death toll in Gaza is over 700 hundred and rising fast.

      Everyone must read this and NEVER FORGET and we must fight for a War Crimes Tribunal against Israel. We cannot allow this genocidal massacre to be swept aside like Cast Lead was. Enough!

      Israel wants a Gaza of cripples: let them die or better still become infirm and a burden on this already crippled society.

      Gaza is a city full of children and this is a thorn in the side of Zionism. Gaza is therefore a city of children abused by Zionist oppression and deprivation. Zionism has punished these children collectively and stripped them of the joys of childhood.

      What can justify one child being murdered every hour in Gaza and countless others maimed? Is Zionism that precious to the Jewish community? Is this the legacy Jews want?

      Israel wants a crippled and a childless Gaza.

      Here's what will bring down Zionism maybe before a demographic turn: the Palestinians have leagues more courage than Zionists and their threshold for pain is off the charts compared to Zionists. Palestinians have endured hell for their land; they've earned their right to have it returned and to return to that land, but it was their land when Zionists came to force them out. That's the grave injustice of it all! Israel must face a war crimes tribunal!

      (It's ironic that Israel has committed this egregious war crime at this school which is symbolic of hope for the future for Gaza's children.)

  • Why Israel's legal justifications for 'Operation Protective Edge' are wrong
    • Abbas is Israel's b*tch.

    • Don't worry, the stench of Zionist war crimes is all over Gaza; there's proof everywhere. You Zionists don't have a leg left to stand on. Your Zionist comrades don't even pretend to hide their hatred and racism against Palestinians any more, kill more Palestinian children is being expressed by Zionists all over the social mediaa after the murder of the 4 boys on the beach. You're not going to get away with your supremacist genocidal massacres after this one. Your jig is up.

    • Here's how out of touch American politicans are:

      Bill Richardson stated that Egypt is stepping up as a potential peacemaker. Egypt? First of all Hamas trusts Egypt's present leaders like it trusts Israel's. Egypt that is helping Israel keep out medical personnel, convoys of medical and humanitarian supplies from reaching Gaza? Egypt's leaders who are oppressing their own people and imprisoning journalists for no reason at all. Egypt that imprisoned the most recent democratically-elected leader and has thrown scores of people in prison for their political beliefs? That Egypt!

      Need I say more on how ignorant American politicians are.

    • The only way that anti-Zionist Jews and leftist Jews can help end the suffering is to GET OUT OF ISRAEL and throw their support behind the BDS movement to squeeze the Israeli economy. Stop prolonging the misery by pushing an illusion that is going nowhere. Start facing reality and do something once and for all to end the suffering of the Palestinian people.

    • Brown shirts and the intellectualization of Zionism by the left. If anyone is living in Israel and pretending to be anti-Zionist; they are contributing to the Zionist economy and the status quo. If you have a conscience then you will get out and allow the inevitable to occur; Zionism's self-destruction, instead of delaying it, because to delay it by pretending there's some kind of hope for Israel is to help in perpetuating an illusion that prolongs the suffering of others, delays justice and denies the truth.

  • Critical Ethnic Studies Association and the African Literature Association endorse the academic boycott of Israel
    • Given the war crimes being committed against Gaza right now, and the UN's feeble impotent response; there should be a massive wave of boycotts and divestment happening.

  • 'Heartbreaking' is U.S. government's talking point for Gaza massacre
    • I agree. Never, ever give Hasbara credence. Israel has used Palestinians as human shields, Israel targets children, targets medical and emergency personnel trying to rescue and save lives. There is no excuse for these barbaric acts - they're war crimes.

      Gaza is the most populated strip of land in the world. Hamas will always be 100 + meters from some structure containing civilians; this is the reality in Gaza and Israel knows it! Israel has pushed Hamas and the people of Gaza where they no longer have anything left to lose and are fored to fight and will sacrifice their lives to end the inhumane humanitarian blockade on Gaza and the oppressive, hermetic conditions Israel has imposed on it to kill off all hope for the people trapped there.

    • It might just put some pressure on Israelis to retreat and force them to consider truce negotiation with Hamas.

    • Don't expect the media, correction Zionist media, to be honest and balanced. They're hiding behind the downed airline tragedy almost 24/7 not to have to touch the genocidal massacre, the rivers of blood in Gaza's neighborhoods, because they know that if they had no other choice but to focus on Gaza, there would be a tidal wave of change in public opinion against Israel. And when they do give Gaza air time; we have to be subjected to the pompous ass Regev or his equally asinine comrade, Oren. CNN is really the mouthpiece of Zionism thanks to the Zionist shill of shills, Blitzer.

  • Oh what a lovely war!
    • Infants are being slaughtered next door, dying in their parents arms and are in comas on the brink of death so this depraved bunch can romance on Palestinian stolen land! There's churning in my stomach at this sickening spectacle of apathy and inhumanity.

  • The deafening silence around the Hamas proposal for a 10-year truce
    • Oh, I see, you mean regressing spiritually instead of progressing. Yes, I do see Zionism regressing back to a time of clubs and caves and zero humanity.

    • A permanent international force is required to ensure ISRAEL doesn't continue committing war crimes.

    • No peace until Israel evacuates West Bank completely and allows the refugees to return to their lands, stops the war crimes and collectives punishment in Gaza and stops all attempts to steal their gas.

    • One more rocket landing at Ben Gurion's doorstep will bring Israel to a standstill. There was a hysterical Zionist woman on the news screaming for the extermination of Gaza just because of this lone wayward rocket that landed close to the airport; I mean she was in nutty hysterics over this one rocket.

      The rocket hit nothing but lemme tell you; this rocket struck very close to the black heart of Zionism if not the Achilles Heel; but it definitely struck more than a nerve. Anyone with the power to bring the Zionist economy to a standstill; will have real power on their side. The solution to ending the Occupation lies with Israel's economy. Watching that woman's reaction; I'm thinking Zionists have a very low tolerance for economic pain! This is great news for BDS!

    • The hasbara are so thick on this thread; it's sickening. I commend everyone who took the time to shred their deception.

    • that *will* really...

    • I wish flights were cancelled for a month! What Zionism needs is a major hit in the pocketbook; that what really lossen its teeth i.e. grip! Lol!

    • I really don't like the notion that Israelis cleared a swamp or two and dislike it as much as the notion that they made the desert bloom. What they did is rape and pollute that land with thousands upon thousands of settlement structures, destruction of olive and fruit orchards and in many other ways, aside from stealing it.

    • Hamas must think Israelis are stupid ...

      The majority of the world's population thinks so too.

      Israel did not seek this war.

      No, it just begged for it.

      Israel cannot solve its grievance, which is the existence of Israel.

      That's what you get when you create a state via war crimes and terror against the people already living there.

      Hamas has two choices...

      It can roll over and die; or it can bring out the chickenshit in the IDF and expose them for the racist, supremacist war criminals they really are.

      The greatest threat to Gaza's people is your superior hubris and the slavish bondage and deception you're trying to push on those you view as inferior.

    • Oh my the hubris in your comment-that Gaza can sell it's own gas...is A GIVEN. Why should Gaza need Israel's permission to sell what it owns???

    • No doubt Zionists will milk this for all it's worth.

    • No, that's not what prevents you, hasbara liar. What prevents you from responding to talknic's excellent comment is your impotence in the face of truth.

    • The disaster of Israeli society is that they're clinging to an illusion that has a tragic end. And when I see them lolling around on the beaches and cafes while this slaughter is happening, I say: they deserve whatever karma they're creating.

  • 'Telegenically Dead': Israel’s crumbling media war
    • Just to be clear, drawing equivalences is not an attempt to inflate the already tragic death toll.

      It's ESSENTIAL to put this issue in perspective for the uninformed American masses.

      Just imagine one of the best American hospitals, fully equipped with the best medical services and equipment, receiving dozens and dozens of serious trauma patients every day for two weeks non-stop and how harrowing, exhausting and impossible that experience would be for the emergency staff; and then imagine a hospital in Gaza, a Zionist concentration camp, deprived by a humanitarian blockade for over a decade of medical equipment and medicine and low on essentials everyone takes for granted, like gauze! as related by a doctor from Doctors without Borders when interviewed by Anderson Cooper.

      Of course these comparisons must be made! And its unfortunate that people in the U.S. STILL don't get the depth of this tragedy and the media is a shamless enabler of their ignorance!

      If it weren't for MSF, Doctors without Borders, this tragedy would be even greater, if that's even possible. But Israeli forces have targeted paramedics, killing two, emergency rescuers also two dead and even MSF firing close to an MSF clearly-marked vehicle! It's unconscionable what Israel is doing to Gaza and not just with this latest massacre on its people! This is a crime of massive proportions; a war crimes tribunal needs to be set up - yesterday. Justice is long overdue for Gaza.

    • First of all: kudos to Selena Gomez and Mia Farrow! Don't be bullied into taking back your compassion for Palestinians' suffering in Gaza.

      Third, in these spaces Israel is losing the propaganda war, despite its vast resources of trolls and misinformation experts.

      Oh yes, there are quite a few of those prowling around here: hop, yehude, dim, and more. And their script is standard deceptive Zionist hasbara issue.

      And ending on a brilliant note, may I say:

      While our side lacks lobby groups, media watchdog outfits, paid trolls, disinformation experts, and the vast financial resources of the Israeli side, we do have one thing going for us—the truth.

      You know the other side is backing deception when they require so much heavy, expensive machinery to make it appear truthful. The truth is powerful on its own; it doesn't need a how-to manual. All it needs is you, me and everyone with a conscience and a heart to set it free!

      The truth is truly a blessed thing. By speaking the truth, the journalists who witnessed the murder of those four boys have achieved the following: they ensured those boys didn't die in vain; although their young lives cut down by pure hate and vengeance is senseless and barbaric; and they tore an opening for the truth to emerge on this issue in the mainstream coverage. Unfortunately right now the media is using the airline tragedy as cover and excuse to ignore the deaths in Gaza, except of course for the occasional political and hasbara bullshet regarding Israel's invasion that is passing for news on the Gaza tragedy.

  • Renouncing my Israeli citizenship
    • When I look at that photo, it makes me think of people dancing on someone's grave. The thought of those Israeli soldiers partying before they went off to slaughter so many innocents; the count is now over 500 dead in Gaza in this massacre alone; turns my stomach.

    • There is no tragic contradiction with Zionism; there is only tragedy. Jews of all stripes; liberal, progressive, center and right are allowing this tragedy to unfold. This outcome was willed and meant to happen. There is however an examination of conscience to be made at some point, because when people as a mass allow this kind of injustice to occur for so long; it begs the moral question: How could people like us commit such an atrocity?

    • No, I'd rather know more about you and why you're prowling around here when you obviously hate what is accomplished here? What's your game exactly?

    • Exactly. Like absolving a murderer who's set free and then kills again. The difference being, Israel commits serial massacres. The judge succumbed to Zionist pressure instead of the rule of law. Pathetic.

    • the bondage of Zionism

      That's exactly it, for both Jews and Palestinians, except that for Palestinians it's a prison of pain and for Jews it's an addiction that voids their humanity.

    • I'm neither suspicious nor surprised by the poll at all given the American masses lack of independent thought. Take all Appalachia bordering states and states like Texas, Florida, S.C., Miss., LA, the Dakotas, Wyoming, Missouri and then the Israel biased NY and even a large part of California and what do you get? Radically conservative, Zionist-biased or superficial and dumb or all the above.

    • It's the humane thing to do given the cruelty we're witnessing and the endless injustice that Palestinians have suffered for Zionism's benefit. I applaud you and Lenny Lapon.

      This restores one's faith in humanity. I can only pray it's contagious. Bravo again and again!

  • Finally, Israel is alienating the US mainstream media
    • Nitwit yahu is contributing to his latest mediatic invention: telegenically dead count that is rising over 500.

      But no doubt he's reassured now since CNN only cares about the victims from the airline crash whom they must think are very telegenic cause we only get to know who they are and hear from their families; Gaza families don't seem to matter squat in the media. It's okay if the dead in Gaza are piling up exponentially and anonymously while all the focus and every centimeter of compassion is diverted to the crash victims and their families. You see, we have to live inside the twilight zone of Zionist media. (Yes, thanks to the web, some folks are getting the truth out and enlightening others.)

      Palestinians weren't allowed their humanity in life and they're robbed of all dignity in death! According to a cold, hard fact from the MSM, there is no more room in the morgue in Gaza, and the floor is all bloody from so many bodies coming in because the attendants can't keep up and have been forced to put the bodies ON THE FLOOR of the morgue. The hospitals are on the brink of collapse. Let's not forget this is Gaza, an already deprived concentration camp! But every bit of compassion has been sent to Ukraine; so back to that.

      Palestinians are paying the highest price for this Jewish legacy; Zionism. Americans are only paying US3 billion a year. How's Zionism working out for ya'all; how does it feel to reap benefits at the expense of the lives of so many?

      In between the crash reporting, the media can go back to interviewing Zionists baking on Israel's beaches for their opinion on the Gaza invasion, i.e. slaughter, and to Zionists chomping on snacks in Sderot and cheering when another 500 pound bomb gets dumped on Gaza and kills dozens more innocents.

  • Massacre in Gaza: At least 60 killed in Shuja'iyeh, over 60,000 in UN shelters

    • Oh, how delicate and pious of these Zionists! Meanwhile, Palestinians bodies are decomposing on shujaiyeh's streets because ambulances get blown up by these same delicate, pious Zionist trained killers and are unable to collect all the bodies!

  • Israeli military destroyed el-Wafa hospital even though it knew there were no weapons inside
    • I look at the people in those beds having to be hauled away in their writhing pain and deprived of the care they desperately need and I think WAR CRIME.

      Today on the news I saw a baby not more than 2 years old bloodied from head to foot being rushed into a hospital only to be later wrapped in a white cloth because he DIED from his wounds! And wounded and maimed were being brought in non stop! The attending physicians/caregivers in the emergency looked like they were in distress and in very serious need of care and rest themselves! I cannot even begin to fathom what it's like to give round-the-clock care under those harrowing circumstances. It's unimaginable to treat people with such inhumanity!

      The entire world must rally to stop this war criminal, ISRAEL. Everyone needs to go out wherever a march is planned in their area and protest the Occupation and the evil that Zionism is proving to be.

    • The question is what happens when combatants are firing rockets from the hospital’s vicinity so that they can benefit from the hospital’s protected status.

      Hasbara bull. The rocket site was 100 meters away! Do you not get distances - do you know how far 100 meters is? Quit protecting your war criminal friends!

      This character H cares squat about the suffering of Palestinians - what the hell is he doing here?

      He does nothing but distort the truth and forces everyone to stoop to respond to hasbara crap.

      When these Zionist criminals are hauled off to a war crimes tribunal then this Hophmi character will get his chance to make his twisted case there! But for him to throw up such deception on this painful event is contemptible. You want boycott and sanctions on Israel? Start by boycotting and sanctioning its hasbara minions.

  • Israel warns media they are at risk of 'injury or death' because Hamas ‘exploits journalists as human shields’
    • Translation: The next time you see Palestinian kids playing on a beach and a bomb gets dropped on them, don't rush to the scene demonstrating sympathy with the victims and report the truth i.e. what you witnessed or you'll become the next collateral damage. In other words, leave or else! We don't want witnesses to our war crimes who can then foil our deception.

    • Yeah, and that's why the IDF are covering their asses by pretending that its Hamas' fault and jouralists responsibility if Israel drops one of the big ones on journalists. But we all know that Israel's forces have killed scores of journalists over the years no doubt because they abhor the truth and proof of their crimes.

  • Mr. Obama, spend one night with us in Shifa hospital, it would change history
    • First, people underestimate commitment. Individuals in today's selfish, superficial world who are committed day after day, year upon year to alleviating human suffering should be honored with the highest respect. It's very difficult to stay committed to the cause of human suffering when the easy way out is so readily available. It takes profound humanity to carry on in such a harrowing scenario. Such humanity should lie within all but unfortunately it's very far from the case.

      How do you thank someone like Mads Gilbert for hanging in there with the Palestinians in Gaza and the tragedy in which they are imprisoned that reflects the world's callous ignorance? Words are futile to recognize this sacrifice. God bless you.

      About Obama: like all or most American politicians and Americans for that matter there is only self-interest there. Obama prefers right now to distract himself with a political football that scores him points - taking down Russia.

      Obama, who had the uncouth nerve to insult Muslims at the WH iftar will never side with the Palestinians. Obama could care less that children are being targetted in Gaza playing on the beach, inside their homes, their schools or even on the way to a hospital in an ambulance after being injured. He could care less that Israel's invasion is a pretext behind which lies a genocidal strategy to abort the demographic threat or at least arrest it until an even more devious and effective solution arises.

      Everyone, even here on this site should read this article and picture themselves in this Zionist slaughterhouse called Gaza, because no one understands the depth of pain being suffered in Gaza and the trauma people live with there with no end in sight and the level of commitment of amazing human beings like Mads Gilbert who are actually there to help in such a hopeless situation.

      Once again, we are witnessing the truth emerge: Zionism is evil and anyone who thinks otherwise should examine his/her conscience.

  • 'We are moving from Iron Dome to an iron fist': Israel launches ground invasion of Gaza
    • I'm not sure what you're getting at. If you're implying there are that many Jews protesting this; then that would certainly get significant media coverage and be sufficient pressure to stop support for Israel. But like I said the response by Jews to this renewed horror executed on their behalf is--unacceptable, and you're haven't convinced me otherwise. Maybe if you had statistics.

    • You really mean that's a nutty story, don't you?

      The PA are the reason Palestinians are still in bondage under Israel's yoke; they're Israel's b#tch! Maybe you should get a one-way ticket to Gaza, spend a couple of years there and then come back and smugly preach inaction.

      Hey, was there inaction in the Warsaw ghetto???

    • I'm not going to lie; I cannot trust any Jewish person's will to do everything in his/her power to bring down Zionism; therefore I cannot trust the authenticity of empathy demonstrated by same towards the suffering of Palestinians.

      Secondly, perhaps I expressed this poorly; I'm not expecting every single Jew to speak as one; I know that's unrealistic; but I am for once expecting some significant outcry from the Jewish community given the horror being inflicted on Gaza after they've already suffered so much cyclical destruction and ongoing deprivation. Instead, what I'm witnessing is a handful of Jews here and there condeming this slaughter. What's it going to take to hear resounding condemnation from Jews? This is unacceptable, especially since this is being done on behalf of the Jewish people! It's immoral not to feel compelled to express total outrage against such brutality committed on behalf of oneself. If someone killed an innocent on my behalf; I would be horrified, reject that individual categorically and would run; not dilly-dally to ensure that person would be punished for such a crime. The condemnation against this barbaric assault on Gaza's trapped population should be second-nature without hesitation and it should be forceful and come from the majority of Jews not just a few here and there!

    • Sderot's Jewish settlers have set up lawn chairs on hilltops to revel like Romans while Palestinian men, women and children are butchered by Zionist military forces and CNN has the gall to report from this vantage point with this sadistic voyeurism happening in the background!

      This slaughter is being executed on behalf of all Jews. When will Jews reject this barbaric legacy with one voice?

  • The human rights community's consensus: Israel is committing war crimes in Gaza
    • At 11:20 pm Palestine time, Zio-terror is being unleashed under the cover of night on Gaza. Zionist tanks are rolling in and the bombardment is non-stop. Gazans are totally vulnerable to tank and Apache helicopter firepower and the rest of the Zionist Goliath war machine assailing Gaza from sky and sea. This is Cast Lead redux or worse. This is not war as the lying Zionist media pretends; this is extreme disproportionate violence executed by one of the heaviest armed military in the world against a concentration camp filled to the brim with impoverished civilians half of whom are children a new generation of Palestinians.

      Who is going to crush this genocidal offensive? Is everyone just going to stand by AGAIN, witness this wanton butchery and do nothing??? What will it take for the world to stop this ritual genocide against the Palestinian people?

    • Nitwityahoo is launching a ground invasion. No doubt he's been itching for a bloodbath in Gaza ever since he came to power. He wants Gaza's waters to turn red. Zionists seem to want to level Gaza - the most populated concentration camp on earth to obliterate all proof of their war crimes and crime against humanity. Half the population are children - the objective is to stop this demographic threat by all means.

      Genocidal butchers!

  • Watch: New Yorkers pierce through pro-war gathering with chants of 'stop bombing Gaza now'
    • Zionist terrorism has killed more innocents and caused more destruction against innocent people and their homes and livelihoods than all the resistance against it in the past 65 years or more! Zionism would not exist today if not for all the terrorist acts committed on its behalf by Zionist terrorist thugs. So don't bullshet us.

    • So on another related note: Rihanna tweets #Free Palestine and takes it down 8 minutes later because apparently she never meant it to go out. Whoopi's granny culottes were in a bunch over what she and the other dumbbells at The View considered misinformed and hasty. Of course, the rest of the Zionist media had pretty much provided the script beforehand.

      FREE PALESTINE is accurate; everything else is bullshet; because the Palestinians are a captive, oppressed people who have endured every kind of indignity and cruelty under the sun on their land that they are being robbed of and all this is being done in plain sight to benefit the Jewish people and that's why it's okay, because if this were being done to any other people on the planet on behalf of anyone except the Jewish people...all the West's politicians would be outraged and up in arms.

  • Israeli onslaught shatters western belief that Arabs are source of violence
    • Here's how I suspect the slaughter of the 4 boys on the beach went down:

      1. Sophisticated Zionist drone spots 4 boys playing ball on beach; because, yes, Israel is using spy drones to get targets in Gaza.
      2. U.S.-made Apache helicopter moves in and takes down 4 innocent children. Price-tag!
      4. U.S. weaponry was again used to commit a war crime

      So the boys are playing on the beach in plain sight and daylight and this was a MISTAKE 'cause they were after Hamas, but foreign journalists in the area saw no Hamas and heard no rockets or weapons fired.

      This is a case of pure revenge just like what happened to the boy that was set on fire; except this was carried out by the Zionist military.

  • Understanding Hamas
    • I agree with George Galloway on unity; but alas, it's a fact of life that the rich rule the poor, and especially, that the corrupt few rule the ignorant many (and he alluded to this fact by mentioning all the parliamentarians who work on ensuring division). Ignorance is rampant in this world, and these corrupt few spend billions (mostly our billions) to keep it that way. Thus the corrupt will be masters of the chess board moving millions of ignorant masses against their own best interests. This is why I believe that the greatest enemy of mankind is ignorance and I'm glad George Galloway is doing his part to lessen this ignorance as we all should with pen, voice, art and protest. It is our duty to wake the masses.

      Nuclear weapons are a lesser threat to mankind than absolute power and wealth in the hands of the corrupt.

      Zionists make up a large part of the corrupt few, and although this division should mostly be blamed on ignorance within; it helps to know who benefits most from this hapless status quo since therein lies the evil motive to keep the mass ignorant.

    • Asking for Israel to deal with reality is like trying to kick the sky. Zionism is not reality-based, so it's kind of disingenuous for a Zionist to bring up the coulda, shoulda, woulda, when we all know that none of these were in the Zionist scheme that is bereft of good intentions.

    • Can we have an article entitled: Understanding Israel's Bitch: the PA? Because we all know who Israel contracts to keep the Palestinian prisoner population in line in Israeli concentration camps in Gaza and the WB. By addressing this strangely way-overlooked, depraved complicity, you don't open the door for a flock of hasbara vultures to sully and try to shred the argument with their smug bullshet.

      Hamas are merely acting on the primal resistance instinct to be free of the scourge on their back; but the PA is actually enjoying the perks of having Israel on its back-side, especially the cash, exactly like any high-priced whore.

      Sure I believe unity is necessary to defeat Israel; but if Hamas really want to enlighten Palestinians and rally all Palestinians, they'll draw a picture of the kind of unity the PA prefers and has really been engaging in with Israel and drop this eye-opener by the thousands on every Palestinian household.

      While their children, relatives and friends are dying, Palestinians should know who's been betraying them, collaborating with the collective punishment they're enduring, and who's surrendering their land and delaying justice for a price.

  • 'American Jewish voices are most critical in the world' (to end idea that Jewish lives matter more)
    • In other words, their chosen response was to kidnap the mind of an entire country.

      With chosen being the operative word, as a matter of fact chosen is the casus belli since day one, the reason for the GRAND THEFT and crime of the century against Palestinians, the root of perpetual injustice and reason for the oppressive, endless occupation. So if everyone's really serious, start by stating: No one is chosen; and all men are equal in the universe! And once the Jewish community firmly commits to this truth; then it can begin to see the horror of this situation: wanton killing of humans like animals because they have first been stripped of their humanity by Zionist ideology masquerading as a Jewish paradise or promised land where democracy and civility reign!

      So I watched the latest news today on this tragedy and what most struck me in the video reports today reinforces how depraved this Zionist illusion really is: On the one hand, I saw the destruction in Gaza, blood-soaked bodies on stretchers and the corpses of wrapped infants and I heard of the mounting fatalities and then a reporter interviewed sunburned Jews ON THE BEACH in Israel, I kid you not, regarding this slaughter and I thought to myself, what is this--an episode of the Twilight Zone? I don't know about you, but if my country were slaughtering people next door; I don't think I could stomach baking in the sun watching people parading around half-dressed, lolling around and frolicking in the water! Just saying...

      This latest massacre is porno for Zionists. Everything about this one-sided slaughter is sick and immoral. The genocide quota gets filled again and the demographic threat is pushed back for another year.

      Zionist hooligans force petrol down a Palestinian kid's throat and set him on fire and this becomes yesterday's news? This image should go down in the pages of Zionist infamy and reverberate globally as a symbol of what Zionism really is and what one becomes when one embraces it.

      Evil.

  • Murdered teen laid to rest, as tensions flare in Shufat
    • I heard on CNN that it's being reported the victim was forced to drink petrol and then set on fire. Imagine how this boy suffered!

      Yes on one side we witness desperation against an inhumane, endless occupation that sometimes fuels violence, but then there's the pure evil that drives this oppressive occupation and barbaric acts like this by Kahane's and Goldstein's disciples.

      When will Jews have enough of this depraved legacy being created on their behalf and reject it with unwavering conviction in every way?

  • NBA owner Sterling reportedly sought to justify his racism by citing Israeli racism
    • One more thing: I wish to categorically discriminate against sagging, ugly, old geezers* surrounding themselves with perky, young women and beautiful showgirls in photo-ops because the shocking disparity grosses me out! My fragile, aesthetic senses are permanently scarred!

      (*this includes skeletal, old playboys and lardy casino czars)

    • Only Zionist racism against Palestinians doesn't get air time or the attention it deserves in the U.S. and it's 100 x's worse than Sterling's behavior. So when AA's start defending the Palestinians and fighting Apartheid in Israel, then I'll spend more time attacking incidents of racism against them, although I was adamantly against Apartheid in South Africa. It's time for blacks to get more pro-active against Apartheid Israel considering how badly blacks are treated there. How much more incentive do they need?

      Think about how protected Israel is in the Zio-U.S. media from criticism; that the part where Sterling factually states that Israel treats blacks like dogs, hasn't even made it to the mainstream!

  • Israel stops US-led peace talks citing Palestinian unity (Updated)
    • If Hamas accepted Israel's existance along the 67 borders there would be wailing heard from Tel Aviv to the WB settlements. But wait...

      link to ynetnews.com

      Zionists already know it's within the realm of possibility, but then that's the real threat isn't it? Hence the wailing, should Hamas dare to firmly utter: we accept Israel along the 67 borders. Cause everyone knows there's no price in Palestinian land robbed that Israel is willing to return for peace. And I agree with Truman's Jesus quote because these Zionists are so selfish even Jesus couldn't save them.

      And can we please dismiss Ali Abunimah’s cynicism as just that: cynicism! And now that the long-expired illegitimate Abbas government has reconciled with Hamas, can everyone please stop pretending there is hope for anything by continuing to govern a non-state and instead focus on dragging Zionists to the ICC with one unified effort and voice!

  • Video: Israeli soldiers detain 6-year-old child on his way to school in Hebron
    • Traumatizing a child is a heinous act. There is no middle ground, no grey area here. I have no pity for those thugs abusing that child's rights in this way; and quit trying to spin it! There should be zero tolerance for military aggression and abuse against children! No doubt the trauma inflicted on this vulnerable child will leave serious scars.

  • John Kerry and the Pope set to face off with Jewish Knight Templars on the Temple Mount
    • What I see in that photo is: blatant provocation and disrespect tantamount to a hate crime on the surface and an ominous threat below the surface.

      The description of the PA here is right on the money and it has been the detriment of its own long-suffering people and their aspirations.

      Any Apartheid state should be forced to release resistors to modern-day colonialist-inspired, oppressive military and illegal occupation that are held in Apartheid state prisons in any Apartheid state.

  • 6 DC heavyweights tell Kerry, Netanyahu in West Bank is like Putin in Crimea
    • Let's get this straight. The overwhelming majority of Crimeans voted for annexation to Russia. While the Palestinians were ETHNICALLY CLEANSED AND ROBBED of their land. Big difference!
