  • NYT's Rudoren says Mondoweiss critique of her recent article is 'nuts'
    • The NYT has many excellent essays and articles, but I will no longer read any of them given that they are used to launder drivel which advances the ethnic cleansing of Arabs by Israeli Jews.

  • Shocker: 'NYT' runs front page press release for AIPAC warning Obama to cool his jets
    • Fears of a "lasting riff"?

      Bring it on, baby. If there's a rift with Israel that lasts through the next ice age it won't be long enough.

  • Episcopal Church rejects BDS resolutions citing fears divestment would hamper church in Jerusalem
    • Smart thinking on her part. We wouldn't want Zionist nuts to start burning down churches in Israel. Oh wait ... they already do.

  • The U.S. is at last facing the neocon captivity
  • Since when is the Southern Poverty Law Center a pro-Israel organization?
    • I was an avid MSNBC viewer until the Gaza War, when the otherwise balanced network showed it would deliberately skew its own coverage to suit Israel. Since then I cut my viewing in half and turned to Al Jazeera, which is (surprise) much more balanced and has better international coverage.

      To see MSNBCs pro-Israel bias, look into how top-level Jewish executives at the network stepped down to micromanage the Gaza coverage, and the firing of Jabreal when she pointed out its imbalance, and Chris Hayes' embarrassingly obsequious "exit interview" of her.

      Also, EVERY major US network was bizarrely silent for the nearly two weeks at the onset of Israel's Gaza attack, which I learned about from Facebook posts by friends in Gaza. Then suddenly, on the very day the kidnapped victims were "found" (...known to have been a staged lie), and Israel's attack was well underway, the networks finally began reporting on it. This coordinated non-coverage was a stark indicator of the influence of the Israel lobby and its insider supporters on the MSM U.S. media.

      Soon after, when Chris Hayes was interviewing Amin Mohyeldin about the Israel crisis they both had nervous looks like they were walking on egg shells, and couldn't square being responsible journalists with kissing up to the Israel. Such self-censorship is a striking contrast to the open discussions about Israel you'll find on AJ or RT, for example.

  • Saban confronts Bennett: 'Are you willing to cut commercial ties with Europe?'
    • He just gave the world a good reason why the D in "BDS" should also stand for "Diversify".

    • "Does he have a list of Jewish owners of these stents/chips or are they just human shields in his battle against the anti semitic world.

      Apparently you haven't heard of the Hannibal Directive. Diaspora Jews suffering heart failure from spontaneously disabled stents should be honored to give their lives for the Jewish State.

    • great point, American. Boycotting Israel could be the next great growth industry - everywhere but in Israel.

      I'm heading down to my bank today to get a small business loan, to sell stickers saying "Not from Israel".

  • Naive? At a Jewish spiritual retreat center, I insist on talking about Gaza
    • Thanks for your story. I find that all of these provocations of guilty consciences are necessary, and in the long, long run, they will prove useful. But will Palestinian society survive that long?

      There are no two ways about it though: the mindsets you encounter are a form of cultism, indoctrinate by family, "church" and community from an early age, so they will not easily recover, especially when they assiduously themselves to echo chambers of like minds.

      In light of that, these painful discussions where people are haplessly thrown together in spite of themselves, are one of the few opportunities to challenge people to reassess the assumption that association with past victimhood earns one moral exceptionalism in the present.

      I hope you would participate in the same way if you have another chance.

  • Photo of six shoveling secretaries needs a caption
  • Five reasons the breakdown of peace talks is a good thing
    • We in the U.S. have always understood the foolishness of binding together religion and state power. Our nation was founded to PREVENT such a fiasco.

      When a state intended for the exclusive empowerment of only ONE religion or ethnicity (like a "Jewish state") has to be built on land already occupied by non-"chosen" indigenous people, the entire affair becomes morally wrong.

      Jews do not need a "Jewish state" to be safe. They live safely all around the world. If Jews REALLY want to be safe they would move to Brooklyn or Boca Raton, not Israel.

      The "Jewish state" is about racial purity and god-chosen tribal "destiny"--two principles which should be abhorrent in the modern era, and are slowly becoming so, thanks to Israel's example.
