I am a news junkie, and am passionate about human rights, and do not like any kind of violence against unarmed civilians. I love to travel, especially in Europe, and enjoy learning about different cultures, and eating the local cuisine.

  • Neoconservatives may finally get their war with Iran, from Donald Trump
    • Who thought Trump would throw the Palestinians under the bus, and announce the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem, giving Israel the green light to call it their capital? With Netanyahu playing puppet master, and Jared exerting pressure on the dotard, they just might coax the idiot that decimating Iran is the best thing for Israel's "security", and he loves to please the evangelicals too. Right now the people in power are not sane and experienced people. It is frightening.

    • All true. The irony is, Nikki Hayley was so outraged about "finding" Iranian weapons in Yemen, she forgot to mention that weapons "Made in the USA" could also be found easily, at the hands of those bombing, and killing, innocent civilians in Yemen, the good ole Saudi's. These Trumpsters sure have convenient lapses of memory. And how about the Saudi blockade that is killing hundreds of little children? Is that okay too Hayley?
      You can sense that the Axis of Evil is gearing up, and working hard, to give Iran the same treatment they gave Iraq too. Whatever they keep accusing Iran of, you can be sure they are guilty of the same. This time I don't think the world will go along, but what will they do?

  • Child of 12 is roughed up, then detained, by Israeli forces in occupied Hebron
    • Americans should feel ashamed that their tax dollars, their congresspeople, and their country, are all supporting these filthy crimes, by giving them aid, weapons, and vetoing UN resolutions, that condemn these crimes. We are complicit in all Israel's crimes. Despite the brave efforts of Betty McCollum and others, there is no doubt we will continue to send this apartheid state aid, so that the occupation and illegal settlements, will continue. It is sad to see young scared little kids treated like criminals, and the disparity between the treatment of vicious settlers, even called terrorists by the US State Department, and these kids, is so obvious, and unfair.

      When people have been living under a brutal occupation, and children have lived all their lives with guns pointed at them, throwing stones is the only way to show resistance, and anger.
      Are Israelis not so bright to fathom that out, or don't they care? Most probably both.

  • Times super-Zionist Bret Stephens commits fallacy and falsehood, on Jerusalem
    • It must serve the zionists very well, to have these die-hard supporters of Israel, work for the American media, and be able to spew their twisted version of facts, that many readers, or viewers, never bother to check out. What makes the New York Times think that a so called journalist whose son serves in the IDF, and writes one biased article after another when it comes to Israel, is going to be unbiased? When it comes to justifying Israel's crimes, these Israel firsters are doing a great job for the mothership, even throwing aside credibility, and honesty, to do so. All for the good of Eretz Israel.

  • Only grassroots activism and global solidarity can bring justice to Palestine
    • The last resort is BDS. The time is NOW for BDS activists to push the nations that do not agree with Trump idiotic decision on Jerusalem, and collectively boycott the occupier. Israel has got away with murder for too long.

  • Oh wrestler, Jerusalem is not a chess piece-- Gazans tell Trump
    • Netanyahu IS utter scum. Like Trump, he has investigations going on against him, Bottle Sara, and their son, so he operates from a very bad place, and must welcome this distraction. He is In some ways just like Trump, he lies, exaggerates, and never takes the blame for anything, even when civilians are killed unnecessary. He needs to face the ICC and answer many questions.
      In some ways, he is a cartoon character, even holding up a cartoon bomb and saying we are all going to be blown up within months. That was years ago. I doubt many leaders believe his bull, and that Obama/Sarkozy live mic proves they don't.

      It is ironic that the hasbara gnats keep saying how "corrupt" Yasser Arafaat was, yet many of their leaders have been investigated for corruption, and one is even in jail right now for it.
      I guess the billions of dollars US tax payers send them must find it's way to those deep zionist pockets. Another effort at projection I guess.

    • And they wonder why we are hated so much. As Tom Friedman said, Trump handed over Jerusalem and got NOTHING in return. The previous Presidents did not give it away, knowing it would be a useful bargaining chip, if ever there were peace talks. The imbecile in the WH gave it all away, and the Palestinians will suffer.

      It seems that "brilliant" peace negotiator, Kushner, showed what a great puppet he was, when the puppet master in Tel Aviv, yanked his chain. Perhaps the terror of Tel Aviv may have helped
      Kushner get out of the 666 Park Avenue billion dollar mess (cue in Adelson and other wealthy, devotees of the occupier) as a reward. Disgusting lot.

  • 'Will the protesters turn violent?' Deconstructing the media's view of Palestine
    • A journalist on BBC mentioned that Saudi Arabia is also on board with this decision, which means the young, not so bright king, has okayed this, betraying his people, and taking the side of their new best friend, the occupier, who has held the Palestinians in open prisons for 60 years, and keeps stealing their lands. Shame on SA for betraying the people who need help desperately, and all for what? Israeli Weapons? Military training? Waging war with Iran? It does seem that US/Israel/Saudi Arabia have become the new axis of evil. Throwing the Palestinians under the bus, must be part of the deal SA was expected to agree to, to please the zionist masters. Three dangerous and devious nations.

      I wish those who protest and try to attack the US embassies, would turn their attention to Trump properties, wherever they are, and show their anger over there instead.

    • Who can blame the Palestinians for responding in some violent fashion? What does the US and Israel expect them to do after 60 years of a brutal occupation, endless peace talks, lands being stolen daily, leaders letting them down, false promises, the occupier pretending it is a victim of the occupied, and their kids being killed at the slightest excuse? They must feel that the so called "honest broker" has finally stabbed them in the back, and given Israel the right to act even more arrogantly, for nothing in return? So much for Kushner the savior of the ME.

      Time for BDS, and trying other means to get their freedom. Time for appealing to the rest of the world when they sympathize with them, and criticize the US and the occupier. The US has let them down, and there is no more hope, although many around the world knew this ages ago.

  • Palestinian officials say, Trump 'destroyed' the two-state solution
    • Apparently the Washingtonpost has an article saying that Trump has no clue to the consequences of this terrible decision, nor does he know a thing about how complicated this volatile situation is, and that he did this so "appear pro Israel". A dumb reason.
      We have a mentally deranged man in the WH, and it is dangerous.

  • Video: Israeli soldiers harass Palestinian elementary school teachers and students in Hebron
    • I'am sure the Nazis taunted many Jewish victims too. The arrogance, and viciousness, of those in power, especially those who carry the big guns, is disgusting. They must feel very "tough" picking on helpless people, people who can't fight back.
      It truly shows who THEY are, and it is ugly.

  • US embassy move to Jerusalem would spark 'fanaticism and violence' and end US status as negotiator -- Arab leaders
    • Apart from Netanyahu, the right wingers in Israel, the illegal settlers, Jared Kushner, and Trump, no leader from any nation, has agreed to Trump starting a huge fire in the region, which will end up with people being killed. The Arab nations that kissed up to him, and want to have his hotels in their countries, should realize this man will throw anyone who does not give him any political advantage within his base, under the bus. The Palestinians and the Muslim world will be totally upset that the rug was pulled from under them, by this mentally unstable man, who Netanyahu, with the help of the savior of the ME, Jared Kushner, manipulated into playing into the zionist"s
      master plan. Mahmoud Abbas (lame duck) must now step down, and give the job he has failed in, to a younger, and forceful Palestinian.

      Let us not forget that both Nuttyahoo and the Crazy Dotard, are both under investigation for corruption, greed, and they would welcome this diversion.

      America has a madman as their president, and he is taking us down a dangerous path. American citizens, institutions, and properties abroad, will never be safe again.

      Perhaps someone should direct angry protesters to Trump properties, and leave our embassies alone.

      Trump destroying the world.

    • What do Trump, Netanyahu, Kushner, and others care, if the Muslim world will be totally upset about this? They provoke, and when Muslims react, they point out to how violent they are.

      If this was the other way around, and the embassy was moved to a sensitive area benefitting the Palestinians, their would be the usual howls of "anti-semitism" from Netanyahu and his cabal.
      This is a provocation, adding fuel to a fire, striking a match to a keg of gun powder.

      If Kushner/Trump/Netanyahu thinks that this will bring peace, they must be either mentally insane, or perhaps they welcome the idea that Israel might find the perfect excuse to "mow the lawn". As for the Muslim nations that welcome the Trumps, and have his hotels in their nations, the Palestinians better not have hope that they will support them, these nations seem okay with Trump's anti Muslim policies.
      I guess that meeting will be without Israel's BFF, Saudi Arabia, who now conspires with the other evil empire in the ME. This is a sad state of affairs, and nothing good will come out of it.

  • Netanyahu has been interfering in U.S. politics for a long, long time
    • The interference and manipulation by Israel is in someways more dangerous. Unlike Russia, Israel has control of MOST members of Congress, he can make them defy their President, and invite a war monger to Congress, going against the policies of their President. The alien Prime Minister of Israel, can also interfere in our foreign policies, the way we vote at the UN, and can get AIPAC to yell anti-semitism, whenever there is criticism for Israel, in our media, colleges, and institution. A piddling (but conniving) little nation that can make our leaders say "how high" is a huge risk to our safety and security.

  • Flynn's plea on Russian influence reveals... Israel's influence!
    • How many other rich American Jews are complicit in Israel's crimes?
      Juan Cole on Jared Kushner and his family sending thousands of dollars into illegal settlements, and Jared not disclosing it. He is such a slimy character.

      "Researchers from American Bridge and Newsweek have revealed Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and White House senior advisor failed to mention to the Office of Government Ethics, during his March filings, that he was the co-director of the Charles and Seryl Kushner Foundation from 2006 and 2015, which was responsible for funding settlements that were deemed as illegal according to the international law.
      “The first son-in-law has repeatedly amended his financial records since his initial filing in March, along with three separate revisions to his security clearance application. Despite correcting his financial history on multiple occasions, he has yet to include his role as co-director to the family foundation,” Newsweek reported"

      https://www.juancole.com/2017/12/kushner-squatter-settlements.html

    • There is no way there would be outrage about Israel's interference, and negative influence, in the US, just like we see in the Russia matter. The media and American leaders will be afraid of being called anti-semitic. Kushner has acted like he is an agent for Israel. He has represented Israeli in the most disgusting ways, pushing Russia to vote favorably towards Israel when it comes to voting in the UN, and pushing for the US embassy to be moved to Jerusalem (it has Jared's fingerprints on that one), and let us not forget that the Kushner family has sent thousands of dollars towards the illegal settlements. America keeps ignoring the negative effects of Israel's influence, despite the fact that many times it has gone against American interests, yet members of Congress in the pockets of AIPAC have consistently put Israel first.
      We will not hear a negative word about any of that, only that Israel is such a good ally, blah blah.

  • Israel will get 'more understanding' from Trump's negotiators because they're all observant Jews, Sharansky says
    • So finally Nutty got BFF Jared Kushner to do what many other US Presidents refused to do.
      Nutty taking advantage of Trump's insanity.

      Trump to announce that the US Embassy in Israel will be moved to Jerusalem.

      "Donald Trump expected to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel on Wednesday
      Move would likely complicate Middle East peace process"

      http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-jerusalem-israel-capital-when-day-latest-announcement-wednesday-a8087641.html

    • At this stage of the game, when it comes to Israel, you still will not find honest brokers, and genuinely unbiased peace makers, in the US government. Even if there were, they would not get a prominent place in the peace teams. Don't they care about how it will all look? How can the Palestinians have ANY faith that their interests will be considered, and taken care of, when the US has Jared Kushner (so close to the Kushner's, that Netanyahu slept in Jared's room while on a visit) and his merry band of zionists, pretending to want what's best for the Palestinians too.
      This is all a farce, and at the end, the Palestinians will be called ungrateful, and accused of wanting to stay occupied.
      Until the last acre is stolen by the zionists, folks.

  • A music lesson from Palestine, for Nick Cave
    • You mean human rights the zionist way?

      "Fifty years after Israel occupied the West Bank and Gaza Strip, it controls these areas through repression, institutionalized discrimination, and systematic abuses of the Palestinian population’s rights, Human Rights Watch said today.

      At least five categories of major violations of international human rights law and humanitarian law characterize the occupation: unlawful killings; forced displacement; abusive detention; the closure of the Gaza Strip and other unjustified restrictions on movement; and the development of settlements, along with the accompanying discriminatory policies that disadvantage Palestinians. "

      In serious denial, or just parroting hasbara talking points?

    • It may be quite simple. Cave prefers shekels to human rights.

  • No way to treat a child
    • Jack Green. I write of only those killed. In that case, thousand more Palestinians must have been injured by Israel precision bombs, and deadly weapons. Ah, the zionists sure know how to exaggerate when it comes to their people, and downplay it, or make silly justifications, when it comes to the real victims, the Palestinians.

      "According to B'Tselem "from June 2004 to 23 July 2014, 26 Israeli civilians (four of them minors) and two foreign nationals were killed in Israel by Palestinian rocket and mortar fire. In addition, five soldiers were killed, three in Israel and two in the Gaza Strip."

    • The poor soldiers must be having nightmares, and being treated for trauma and stress.

    • Good example Amigo. They consistently point fingers at the Palestinians for things they themselves are guilty of. It must be hard to keep defending the indefensible.

    • Kaisa, I have seen pictures of the Palestinian territories before the poison crept in, and it looked a wonderful place, with a people flourishing, and there were pictures of thriving farms, and a very cultured people. It is very sad, that other human beings can use their might, and take advantage of the fact that there are others supporting them, to inflict pain, and to viciously take all that away. When one looks at the shrinking map of Palestine, the story is obvious. Had this been done to the zionists, there would be outrage from all the western nations that support them.

    • To your point remember this menacing Palestinian boy and how afraid the IDF was of him?
      They certainly look terrified here.

    • I hope you realize that propaganda is not working anymore. Blaming the victims has it's limits.

      Kindly explain to us how the strongest (and ruthless) military in the Middle East, known for being a top weapons manufacturer, gets the latest deadly weapons, and jet fighters, from the US, and has the support of the US, kills thousands of Palestinians when it "mows the lawn" is so terrified, of UNARMED civilians, that resist the occupation WITH STONES AND ROCKETS THAT HARDLY HITS THEIR TARGET.

      Do explain why Israel who has held these poor people under occupation for decades, controls their movements, is not so afraid of the Palestinians to STOP STEALING THEIR
      LANDS?

      According to the zionist narrative, the Palestinians do not want live in peace, they enjoy being occupied, children kidnapped and thrown in jail, have their lands stolen, have to go through checkpoints, have their farms destroyed, homes bulldozed, olive trees stolen, and precision bombs being sent to their homes, wiping out entire families. Pro occupiers sound so ridiculous.

      Give us a break, and stop blaming the victims of Israel's brutality..

  • Pro-Israel groups' campaign against Linda Sarsour targets another progressive institution -- New School
  • Trump administration threatens to close Palestinians' office in Washington DC
    • No demands from the occupier eh? How about warning them that if they don't stop building illegal settlements, and attend peace talks, the billions of dollars and weapons, will be halted?
      Why pick on the victims of this endless occupation?

  • Bret Stephens equates anti-Zionists with white nationalists in the 'New York Times'
    • Even if they had the spine, the US will block it., veto it, or threaten the other nations to not vote for it. The US keeps giving billions of dollars in aid, and the deadliest weapons, for Israel to "defend" itself from home made rockets and stones. The US is complicit in all of Israel's crimes, including the occupation, and the land grabs. The outrage you see from the US when Israel
      announces thousands more illegal settlements is false, because US funding must be helping build squatter land, and the "outrage" is simply an act.

    • That Jared Kushner sure is working hard to achieve peace in the ME. Apparently the Trump administration, has threatened to shutter the Palestinian office in DC, if they they don't enter into serious peace talks. No threats thrown at our buddy of course, no threats of stopping the billions in aid, or warnings about the continuation of building illegal settlement, which are detriment to any peace initiatives.
      Honest brokers eh? Once against the victims in this conflict are thrown under the bus.

      Palestinian official balking at US 'extortion or pressure

      "The Trump administration has put the Palestinians on notice that it will shutter their office in Washington unless they've entered serious peace talks with Israel, U.S. officials said, potentially giving President Donald Trump more leverage as he seeks an elusive Mideast peace deal.

      The Palestinian foreign minister denounced the U.S. move as an attempt at "extortion."

      http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/trump-administration-takes-step-closing-plo-office-51240480

      Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has determined that the Palestinians ran afoul of an obscure provision in a U.S. law that says the Palestine Liberation Organization's mission must close if the Palestinians try to get the International Criminal Court to prosecute Israelis for crimes against Palestinians. A State Department official said that in September, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas crossed that line by calling on the ICC to investigate and prosecute Israelis.

    • So who can be shocked that that Robert Melendez, that staunch supporter of an occupation, and land grabs, has got Jewish American billionaires to pay those pesky legal bills? Israel makes sure their scoundrels in Congress are well taken care of, and this is not the first time Melendez has been in hot water either.
      Ironic that an alien nation makes sure they have the right amount of votes in Congress.

      Pro-Israel Billionaires From Both Parties Aid Menendez’s Defense Fund

      "Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey, who was indicted in April on corruption charges, raised nearly $1.6 million for his legal defense fund in the second quarter of the year, including from some of the country’s most prominent pro-Israel billionaires, according to a disclosure report filed this week.

      Though Mr. Menendez is a Democrat, his legal fund has attracted support from political donors in both parties who take a hawkish view of Israel’s security. The New Jersey senator has been an outspoken critic of the Obama administration’s nuclear negotiations with Iran, and its often-troubled relationship with the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

      Sheldon Adelson, the casino billionaire who is a prolific donor to Republican groups, gave $10,000 to Mr. Menendez’s legal trust, as did Mr. Adelson’s wife, Miriam, who is a physician."

  • Netanyahu uses Iranian earthquake to praise Israeli 'humanity' and denounce Iranian 'hatred'
    • The zionists have no humanity when it comes to the Palestinians. Or else they would have ended the occupation decades ago, and stopped stealing their lands.

      Here you go, two despicable players in the ME, conspiring to attack their common enemy, and trying to make a case for it. Now if only they could convince the US to help do their dirty work.

      Israeli Military Chief Gives Unprecedented Interview to Saudi Media: 'Ready to Share Intel on Iran'

  • 'Want to boycott Israel? Be my guest, there will be a pricetag' -- Israeli official warns Europe
    • If BDS against Israel is anti-semitism, what can you call BDS against South Africa?

      You know, the apartheid South Africa, that the world boycotted, yet Israel tried to sell it nuclear weapons?

      Israel loves to play the victim, and should keep in mind that making threats, and whining about everyone being anti-semitic, and picking on poor little Israel, is not going to work. The world dislikes Israel not because it is a Jewish nation, but because the world despises an occupier, its crimes against powerless civilians, and that ugly habit of stealing lands for illegal settlements.
      They however love to pretend otherwise.

  • First ever bill on Palestinian human rights introduced to U.S. Congress
    • Of course they will deny it. This reminds me of O.J. Simpson looking for Nicole Simpson's killer, or Israel investigating the killing of innocent civilians, wounded Palestinians, or their endless attacks on Gaza, by their brutal IDF, and declaring themselves innocent of all crimes, and that they were simply "defending themselves" (from unarmed civilians?).

      Perhaps Myanmar learnt how to do it from the masters of deception themselves, who keeps selling weapons to the killers in the Myanmar military, and most probably training them how to use it.

    • I cannot help but feel pessimistic. I somehow cannot see the majority in Congress, who are in the pockets of AIPAC and other pro Israel lobbies, to do what is right, and support this bill.
      These poor children have suffered for too long, in the most inhumane ways, and had this been Israeli children, this bill would have been passed long time ago. It will be interesting to see who has courage to support this.

  • 'Iraq didn't work out, but at least it was a belief in progress' -- David Brooks reflects on a BIG mistake
    • They are. Yet, Americans keep voting for them, appointing them, giving them prominence, and not holding them accountable for their insane policies, and deadly mistakes.

    • The neocons and zionists in the Bush administration all pushed very hard for that bloody war in Iraq. Now they nonchalantly dismiss it as something "that did not work out". Their attitude is disgusting to say the least.

      Never mind, we waged an unnecessary war on a sovereign nation, toppled their leadership, got their leader killed, decimated the country, opened the borders for terrorists to go on suicide missions in market places, and employment agencies, and started a sectarian war, which Hussein prevented...most of all millions of Muslims have been killed, millions maimed, and millions are now homeless, and these filthy human beings, only regret that "it did not work out".

      Imagine his outrage had these been Jewish lives. What now? Let's go on and try the same thing in Iran, that might "work out". Let's continue to do Israel's bidding, and pour in trillions of dollars to fight their wars. Protecting our dear and only true "buddy" in the ME is a costly business, but David Brooks will be all eager to do it again, without hesitation. How patriotic.

  • Prince Charles decried White House's failure to take on 'Jewish lobby' over Israel
    • As we can all expect, Prince Charles will soon be attacked, and accused, of being anti-semitic.

      Even royalty will not be spared from the "hysterical" outrage by deeply wounded zionists.

      It is more a case of the truth hurting, everyone knows, but many pretend otherwise.

  • Israeli musicians to Nick Cave: Send a strong message -- refuse to play in Israel
    • It is heartening to know that within Israel there are sensible voices, who dare to disagree with what their leaders have done, and keep doing. If only there were more voices to deafen their leadership.

  • No Exit: 16,000 Palestinians who have applied to leave Gaza are waiting to hear from Israel
    • Democracy is allowing people to be free, and able to come and go as they please. Israel has boxed in the Palestinian people, steals from them, collectively punishes them, kills them, and many Israel have used terms like "bombing them back to the stone age", "concentration camps", and attacks on Gaza are met with glee, as Israelis watch the people of Gaza being killed picnicking on top of hills. The nations that keep arming and supporting this rogue state, are enablers, and are equally guilty of international crimes.

  • The Russiagate farce, or how the Russians corrupted our pristine democracy
    • "You appreciate being ridiculed? Unbelievable!"

      Keith, you have no clue who I am, therefore you cannot judge how I operate or think.
      That said, you should stop squawking , try to come down from that lofty imaginary perch, and realize that your comments only come across as condescending, and your conclusions way off, which does not add value to the debate. Enough with the dramatic questions.

    • Thank you Sibiriak, you said it very well. This is a very serious situation, and we still do not know how far the interference. and manipulation, has affected us. We have only seen the tip of the iceberg, and I feel the seriousness of this situation will be felt as the information keeps surfacing. Yes, the US definitely does interfere in other nations, which I do not agree with, but as citizens we should have a sense of security, making sure our elections have not been corrupted by foreign nations, especially adversaries, who only mean to hurt us.

    • I would not dismiss this lightly. No foreign nation, should interfere, send paid trolls to comment sections to spew false propaganda, and pay for ads on US social media (all confirmed) which millions have viewed. The man who shot into a pizza parlor was one who believed the BS against Clinton. Netanyahu made an ad for Romney in Florida, and most of us considered it interference.
      Maybe it was not enough to help a dotard win, but it is a dangerous precedent, and should be harshly dealt with. If an enemy nation can manipulate our elections, it will be the end of democracy as we know it.

  • The Weinstein effect drags in Israel
    • John O she sounds like some of the rabid zionist congresspeople you find here. Anyone who supports an occupier, ignores the human rights violations, and wheels and deals with them for their own benefit, is garbage, in my book.

    • I wonder what Patel and the zionists were up to, and what they were conferring about. No doubt they were up to no good.....another example of the zionists trying to influence a nation through their officials. I wonder what they promised her.
      I guess it worked in the US, and the zionists are masters of manipulation.

  • Five Palestinians bodies recovered from tunnel bombing after Israeli court ignores emergency rescue petition
    • Well, if they were ISIS terrorists, they would have rescued them, and given them plenty of TLC and comfort. Typical zionist double standards.

  • Jewish leaders seek to shut down anti-occupation movie in MA because it 'sniffs of Nazism'
    • No way! In the land of freedom, and freedom of free speech? What is wrong with these zionists, they seem unable to handle cartoons, and some criticism of their country. This has nothing to to with their religion, so there is no need to react so badly. Shouldn't the supporters of the only true "democracy" in the Middle East be open enough to allow opposing voices to criticize their actions? They must fear something, or else they would not want to shut this movie down.
      The truth being told perhaps?

      How and where can we watch this documentary?

  • Gerard Butler, Gene Simmons, and Pee Wee Herman help raise $53.8 million for the IDF
    • Not a single thought, or regard, for the fact that the millions of dollars, is going to back a ruthless military, that kill civilians at the slightest, and sometimes false, excuse. To these despicable wealthy people, those brown skin arab children, are nothing. What the United Nations and other human rights agencies say, seem to not count, nor do international laws.

      They are prostituting themselves for lucrative contracts and roles, at the expense of occupied, unarmed and helpless people. Sad.

  • May, Netanyahu celebrate Balfour while Palestinian politicians call for UK to apologize, recognize Palestinian state
    • "Nigel Farage: 'Jewish lobby' has disproportionate power in the US
      'Farage’s clumsy use of the terms Israel and Jewish lobby interchangeably and his reference to their ‘power’ has crossed the line into well-known antisemitic tropes,' says Board of Deputies

      To which Peter Beinert on CNN poo poohed the thought saying American Jews have the right to lobby within the country.....Strange, he forgot to mention that the Israeli lobby in the US pushes, and lobbies, for what Israel wants, even over the best interests of their own country. Coaxing/pressurizing American institutions, and Congress, to pass anti BDS resolutions, is not for the benefit of the US, last I heard. Looks like Beinert is now on the dark side.

    • It seems PM May is proud that the UK played a huge part in an ongoing occupation, and illegal land grabs, by placing unwanted (by the UK and the US) homeless Europeans, in territories where indigenous people have lived, farmed, and flourished, for years before. Her endless pride will make her continue UK's shameless support of what is now known as an apartheid nation, that receives aid and weapons, to keep killing more Palestinians, when they decide the "mow the lawn". I guess shame is something the UK and the US don't feel, when they see thousands of Palestinians being killed, entire families wiped out, illegal settlements being built by the acres, and the poor Palestinian farmer losing his land and olives to the squatters. The results of the "brilliant" gesture by the UK, US, and UN, to right a wrong, at the expense of powerless people.

      When will the Palestinians be given their rights and freedom? They have suffered for too long.

  • PM May: Take back the Balfour Declaration – Israel reneged on the bargain
    • Interesting article by Robert Fisk:

      "Even more disgraceful than May’s foolish words – for many Britons may well feel shame or prefer silence when they contemplate this episode of history – were Mark Regev’s remarks this week that citizens of the United Kingdom, to which he is currently accredited as ambassador – are “extremists” if they oppose the Balfour Declaration.

      Thus, the man whose nauseous excuses for the slaughter in Gaza we had to put up with when he was an Israeli government spokesperson, continues that “those who oppose the Balfour Declaration are exposing themselves for the extremists they are. If you oppose a Jewish national home, that means you think Israel should be destroyed. And let’s be clear: that’s the position of the Iranian government; that’s the position of terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas.”

  • 'Daily Californian' cartoon of Dershowitz dripping blood unleashes another furor over anti-Semitic canards
    • Well, they cannot take criticism even in cartoon form. All fake cries of free speech and expression, falls short. I can still remember that cartoon of an old man sitting on top of a mountain, enjoying watching Israeli bombs drop over Gaza, and after howls of anti semitism, the Australian publication retracted it. Zionist howls seem to intimidate the media.
      When will they stop being intimidated, and say it is free speech? After all, when there was a cartoon of the Prophet Mohamed, that is exactly what the western world said.

  • UN rapporteur urges sanctions on Israel for driving Palestinians 'back to the dark ages'
    • What she should have said was the fact that the US keeps sending billions of dollars to a despicable nation, and arming their ruthless military, to turn on civilians, and send precision bombs into their homes, wiping out entire families, is truly disturbing. It is frustrating to think that US tax dollars keep pouring in to prop up and support an apartheid nation, who disregards all international laws, to keep their damn occupation going.

    • Israel is either "bombing Gaza to the dark ages", or "driving Gaza back to the dark ages". There is something vicious and evil, about Israel's treatment of the Palestinians. That said, it won't be too long for Michael Lynk, to be accused of, you guessed it, being "anti-semitic".
      Richard Falk, United Nations Special Rapporteur on "the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967. learnt that the hard way.

      No credible, qualified, or rational official, can criticize Israel for it's sorry treatment of the Palestinians, and not be accused of anti-semitism. That is the only way to silence those who speak the truth.

  • Who can save Israel now? Labor leader emulates Netanyahu
    • Unfortunately, this politician knows that to win votes, and the approval of the people, he must continue with Netanyahu's policies and legacy....polls show the majority of Israelis want the occupation, and illegal settlements, to continue. The evil that is zionism. No politician that announces he/she wants to end the occupation, and give back illegal lands, will ever make it in zionist land. All at the expense of the true victims of this terrible conflict, the Palestinians.

  • Israeli women march to 'wage peace' but refuse to challenge the occupation
    • From what I recall, the majority of Israelis support the occupation, and do not want it to end.

      "More than 70 percent of Israelis want their army to continue its brutal 50-year occupation of the Palestinian territory.
      The majority of Israelis are against ending the 50-year occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, a poll released Tuesday showed, which also found that most Israelis want full control over the city of Jerusalem, while Palestinians want its east side as their capital.

      The poll, conducted by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, found that 77 percent of all Israelis oppose a full Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank, which has been illegally occupied for the past 50 years.

      Most Israelis also opposed another withdrawal option that would allow Israel to keep the internationally-illegal settlements it has constructed in the West Bank but withdraw from the rest of the Palestinian territory with 57 percent saying they opposed such an option."

  • Susan Rice calls 'BS' on AIPAC -- but she pandered to the lobby when she was in power
    • I was no fan of Susan Rice, and was disgusted by the way she defended the occupier, when she was representing the nation at the UN.
      But maybe now that she is no longer in office, feels free to express her opinion, even contradicting her previous stance.
      Of course AIPAC is BS. They should be dismantled for doing Israel's bidding, even against the best interests of the US. The "A" in AIPAC is a joke.

  • Trump's speech on Iran deal is an orgy for Israel and its US friends
    • Israel seems to be scarier, with the possibility that it could attack it's neighbors at any time, or if they decide to mow the lawn.

      You are however lucky to be able to visit Iran, something I have been interested in doing for a long time. I would like to see the beautiful mosques, and buildings I often see in pictures, and sample their cuisine.

  • Netanyahu announces unprecedented settlement expansion in the West Bank
    • Despite the claims that the Israeli Nutty and the American Nutty are good friends, it seems the Israeli Nutty is thumbing his nose at his dear American friend, by announcing more illegal settlement, typical of zionist greed. This should make the task even harder for the Kushner the new peacemaker! That's okay, let's send them more aid and weapons, as a reward.

  • Hamas and Fatah sign unity deal, but details remain unclear
    • It will be hard for anyone who has arms to get rid of it anyway, not with the huge looming threat next door, that has the latest ones from the US, and made at home. If my neighbor kept attacking my family, whenever they decide to mow the lawn, it would be best in my interest, to arm myself too. Any party that wants to hold on to the status quo, so that they can continue an occupation, and the greedy grabbing of land, will reject anything even reasonable, to keep doing so. The world knows this game that Israel plays, quite well, only some like the US keeps pretending they don't.

    • The corrupt leader of Israel at one time said Israel could not negotiate for peace because the various factions in Palestine were not united etc. Now that they have wisely decided to unite, the greedy zionist king finds it will make peace "harder" to achieve. He is insulting the intelligence of the world, by coming up with these BS excuses. Go have some pink champagne Nutty.

  • From Greta Gerwig to NYU, Israel has deep reservoir of cultural support in U.S.
    • It is a man made reservoir created by AIPAC and other Israeli lobbies, who have the Congress and the media in their deep pockets, and the zionists control America and we know it.

  • Leading journalists call 2nd Amendment an anachronism -- but spare Zionism
    • Most journalists in America, are afraid to write about Israel or it's endless crimes. Brett Stephens is one of the pro Israeli ones, and gets amnesia when it comes to naming Israel in a negative light. Of course many journalists have their slants, but when it comes to Israel it is not a slant, it is total tip over.

    • From what I remember MDW had an article about Brett Stephens son being in the Israel Defense Forces, so no one should be surprised where Stephens head is, and which way his bias would go, when it comes to anything Israel. It is a shame that America has journalists who are strongly pro Israel, and cannot write unbiased articles. They have lost any credibility they may have had.

  • 'We need to kill Arabs' and 'Islam is a bad disease' -- Israelis interviewed on Jerusalem street
    • If this was the other way around, and these were Palestinian people on the streets, the pro zionist mouthpieces in the media, would have done the rounds, outraged that the Palestinians want Israel and Israelis destroyed, and done with, and the devoted in the US would have renewed their love and devotion to it. This only proves that Israeli kids are taught to hate from their young days, believe the zionist propaganda naively, and they only have deadly intentions against those they keep stealing lands from and occupy. This lot will turn into wicked adults. One standard for God's chosen, and another for the goyim.

  • My congressman, Ted Lieu, supports human rights everywhere but Palestine
    • If these were Palestinians, the outrage would have been loud, and the cries of anti-semitism, louder. It also shows that just like they accuse the Palestinians, they teach their children to hate too. The hypocrisy is crystal clear.

    • See my response above.

    • Sorry my comment was in response to Just.

    • Interesting video. It shows that the men and women on the street of Israel are racist, ignorant, and arrogant. The one that stood out was the man saying they are entitled to hate Arabs.
      We have been told countless times by hasbara that all Arabs hate the Jews, and yet it is no different in zionist land. They are not as intelligent as I thought they were. They seems to be regurgitating propaganda that was fed to them. They are also very blood thirsty, no wonder they camped on hills and picnicked when Gaza was being bombed to rubble.
      The bottom line is, the want it all, and if they have to kill or chase the Palestinians away, so be it.
      Oy vey!

  • Three megadonors (who just happen to love Israel) are pushing Trump against Iran deal
    • It seems the old guy ( who looks like he is drinking prune juice), is consistently showing love for Israel, and yearning to be there....why doesn't he move to the land of illegal settlements, and stop interfering in American matters? They are buying the US for Israel, and perhaps should use the money they throw around here to corrupt the congress, and get pro Israeli votes, to help their mother ship, and give the US tax payers a break from sending those billions of dollars.

      They would love to bomb, wage wars, kill millions, and use American blood, and resources, to fight those who stand up to them, but cannot take it when the other side uses the same rhetoric. Then the outrage is quite loud in the US, in fact deafening.

  • UN takes first concrete step to hold Israel accountable for violating Palestinian human rights
    • This is great news, and long, long overdue. I hope this will be the start of more action, to hold Israel accountable, for thumbing it's nose at the world community, stealing lands, and carrying on as if it is legal, and also for these shameless pro zionist companies, who defied the rules, and went ahead anymore to put down their roots in stolen lands. The ONLY way to hurt Israel is economically. Let them feel the pinch, and let them be treated like other rogue nations.
      I wish this was done years ago.

  • Balfour Declaration, now 100, was 'gun pointed at heads' of Palestinians -- Khalidi
    • Off topic but relevant. Saudi Arabia is desperately trying to improve/change it's horrible image around the world (for many good reasons).

      "Saudi Arabia is lifting its ban on women driving, according to a statement from the state-run press agency.

      Saudi King Salman’s decision was announced by royal decree, the agency said.

      The regulation has been part of the conservative kingdom’s broad restrictions on women’s rights, which include requiring women to secure a male family member’s approval for actions such as working and traveling.

      Female activists have long protested the ban, including by staging demonstrations during which they end up facing arrests and other state restrictions for driving." Huffpost

      That would be a hard sell until they stop bombing Yemen, and stop conspiring with Israel, to cause mischief around the world. They should also stop trying to radicalize Muslims in other nations, and stop waging proxy wars. I mentioned it was a hard sell.

  • Palestinian appeal to ICC seen as last hope to 'bring justice for the victims' of Israeli violations
    • How many nations left, uncorrupted by shekels, and untainted by an Israeli lobby, that will help these long suffering people get justice for the atrocities, crimes, and violence against them? I have no hope that there are any. Most of them watched one of the most disliked, and ruthless nations, get away with an occupation and land grabs, and although verbally condemned it, did nothing. In fact they continued to aid the criminals, and even armed it, so that they could "defend themselves" from unarmed victims. I hope the criminals get their just desserts in our lifetime.

  • Rachel Maddow's lineup of crazy U.N. speeches spotlights Arafat-- and leaves out Netanyahu!
    • Her investigative journalism is better than most others. Of course, like ALL others, she will not dare to criticize, or focus on, the criminal behavior of the zionists, and must keep the "poor Israel is a victim" narrative going, if they want to keep earning big bucks. They don't call it "zionist media" for nothing.

    • Either you must be part of the Robert Mueller team, and know that they are wasting everyone's time, or must do some research to learn how this works. It is strange that Trump's son, son in law, and around 10 in his campaign/administration have had secretive meetings and calls with Russian spies and agents, and have even admitted to it, after it was found out, and yet you think it is an easy way to "smear" these deceivers. This has nothing to do with the fact that Clinton may, or may not, have been a lousy candidate, this has everything to do with this country being corrupted by Russian interference, possible collusion with enemy no.1, and unethical practices by Trump and his cabal. Every American must be outraged at this, and what it means for future elections.

    • I must say I watch Maddow, because her coverage of the Russian investigation can be interesting. That said, of course she does not mention Israel or refer to it's crimes. but then which journalist does, in any of the news channels? No one has the courage to mention the words "occupation" or "illegal settlements", and knowing that the parasitic nation is given billions of dollars by American tax payers, the most aid to any nation, I would think it would be a topic of interest for the American people to know how it it spent, the crimes against humanity, the Palestinian homes demolished, and miles long illegal settlements, which the US has condemned, and that this is the nations that kills civilians, at the slightest excuse. It is time they
      informed the public that Israel is not the real victim in this conflict.
      I guess to do so would be the end of their careers. It is a sickening situation.

  • Jews have religious commandment to support Israel and fight BDS -- American Jewish Committee
    • This must be what they call a guilt trip. Make all Jews feel that to support BDS, and criticize the endless crimes by Israel, which goes against international laws, and considered human rights abuses, is to go against their religion, and is disloyal to good ole Israel. I hope there are rational thinking American Jews, who can see the difference.

  • Netanyahu, say hi from me to the penguins in Antarctica
    • Maybe not, but today the fat guy in NK has likened Trump's UN speech to a barking dog. I guess when you keep insulting others, they can hit back 10 times harder too! Having no clue as to how NK must be handled, Trump is under the illusion that calling other's names, like he does at home, will solve the problem.

    • Good article, and I found it extremely funny.

      Netanyahu and Trump? Of course they match in many ways. Right now BOTH of them, and members of their families, are being investigated for unethical practices, among many other crimes. Two dishonest men, who lie every time they open their ugly mouths.

      Netanyahu and Modi? Two racists men, who have had a long history of killing Muslims, and
      pretending they are the victims.

      The Penguins? Last I heard they are shivering in their boots anticipating the zionist leader visiting their territories, for fear of their icy abodes being destroyed, for illegal settlements, and
      that they will be occupied for decades to come.

      You can be sure that next year, at the same time, Netanyahu will be drama queen again, pounding his chest and acting outraged that Iran is a threat, and dangerous. Comedy time.

  • Read Netanyahu's UN speech, which praises Trump to the skies and matches his North Korea hyperbole on Iran
    • Netanyahu doe not know when to quit. Almost every speech for the past few years have been attacking Iran, even acting like Chicken Little, warning the the sky was going to fall, holding up his cartoon bomb. He tried desperately to sabotage Obama's efforts to get Iran sign the nuclear agreement, shamefully using the congress to achieve his goals. It is now boring, and not working. The levels of hypocrisy that comes from the US and Israel rises by the day. Iran has not attacked it's neighbors, or any other nation, unlike the US that has bombed many, and killed millions of civilians, and Israel that has attacked it's neighbors, and tries it's newest weapons on the poor Palestinian people, and IRAN CANNOT BE TRUSTED WITH DEADLY WEAPONS?
      WHO KEEPS BELIEVING THESE HYPOCRITES?

  • Netanyahu slathers praise on Trump for making US-Israel relationship 'stronger and deeper'
    • Two arrogant, shady leaders, BOTH under investigation, BOTH their families under investigation, and BOTH anti Muslim. The zionist leader tried hard to get the US to use it's resources and bomb Iran, but Obama was strong enough to resist. Knowing how Trump waffles, and knowing he will give in to anyone if HE (or his private businesses) can benefit from it, it is frightening to think Israel will use him to succeed in destroying yet another Muslim nation, a nation that even evil nation no .2, Saudi Arabia, will be happy to join in that destruction.

      Will the zionist leader use yet another cartoon bomb to convince Trump? They must know that Trump's juvenile mind might appreciate it.

  • 'Regime instability' in Iran is aim of leading Israel advocate's memo to White House
  • Israel lobby is never a story (for media that is in bed with the lobby)
    • All the US and other Western nations must do is threaten to cut off the aid, and the weapons flowing into Israel, and things will change drastically. They beg for the aid to be increased, and seems they cannot live without it.

    • My edit feature is not working.

    • This is connected to the media, and just an observation. I noticed that many articles regarding the ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya people, in the news media, like the Independent UK, and others, have commenters that justify the violence, blame the victims, the religion, and make hateful comments, even if the article is about Rohingya children being traumatized. I am beginning to think that these are the usual hateful hasbara crowd with a different mission - to keep justifying the violence, so that Israel can keep selling it's weapons to this brutal regime and military. Where there is violence, human rights violations, and civilians being massacred, you will find some connection to Israel, somewhere in the world. I guess they have the experience to advice any brutal regime, and even train law enforcement, and the military, (we know they do all that) how to kill, and use their weapons. After all Israel's brutal occupation, and crimes against the Palestinians, for 60 years, have made them the experts. Shame on the US for having an arm embargo against Myanmar, yet look the other way when Israel keeps arming their military, to are terrorizing the minority people, who face the horrible brutality, rapes, burning of homes, and the poor Rohingya people have to flee.
      Israel is also suspected being the instigators in a similar situation in Sri Lanka, using a terrorist saffron robed thug, Just like Wirathu of Myanmar, to spread hate against the minority Muslims, causing fear and the burning of Muslim shops, and Mosques being attacked. Israel was also found to be involved in the violent conflict between the government (majority) and the minority Tamils, which was bloody to say the least, and Israel was found training the government forces, and the terrorists at the same time (according to an ex Mossad official) Israel plays some really filthy games around the world, and in their backyard.

  • Critics slam ADL for training U.S. police in Israel-- and when Reddit AMA goes off script
    • This was a brilliant plan, and we have American politicians in congress, and the zionist controlled MSM to blame. The zionists have successfully been able to convince Americans that an occupier, one of the top arms manufacturers in the world, who is the recipient of US aid, more weapons, and support, with one of the violent armed forces in the ME, is THE VICTIM of unarmed, powerless, civilians, who are at the mercy of said occupier, and whose resistance to decades of occupation, and the resulting violence against them is "defending themselves". It seems only the occupier has the right to "defend" themselves, and not the victims, and it seems only one side has the rights. The hypocrisy of the US and EU nations, who demand other rogue nations to toe the line of democracy, and ignore and even condone, the human rights violations, land grabs, and the daily violence against helpless civilians, is disgusting to say the least.

      The conclusion one might reach is, these nation are compliant, and silent partners, in one of the most disgraceful crimes of ethnic cleansing, and slow take over of lands that belonged to the indigenous Palestinian people. The Congress and the US media pretend otherwise.

    • Well it seems that Israel, has been found to be heavily involved in American law enforcement personnel, and we have to wonder why our Police Academies, are not good enough for our police officers to get the same training at home, instead of an alien nation, that has been caught spying on us. Israel cannot be trusted, and any offers of freebies, should be looked upon suspiciously. Are these services in return for the endless aid we keep sending them?

      According to Victor Ostrovsky (ex Mossad), Israel was training the Sri Lankan military, while nearby they were training the terrorists they were fighting against. War is good money for Israel, whether it is weapons or training, even if it means training both warring factions.

  • Arab League and Palestinian Authority to block Israeli bid for UN Security Council seat
    • The inmates will then be running that asylum. Perhaps when Israel has ended it's endless occupation, stopped the building of illegal settlements (which is against UN regulations), and allow those they hold under siege to be free, they will have the moral authority to hold that seat.
      Personally, I doubt Israel will ever be trusted by other nations, and it has the record of being one of the most disliked nations in the world. I would agree that there are other nations not worthy of being in that council, but we are discussing one of the world's top occupiers, and human rights abusers, who has a long list of condemnations, and world criticism, some of course vetoed by the good ole' USA. Will the US as usual save the day for it's dear ally?

  • Soros and the Illuminati! Netanyahu Jr. spreads anti-Semitic cartoon
    • The spoilt son, who like his parents, have also been the recipient of generous "gifts" is yet another corrupt, and arrogant member of the Netanyahu family. He has consistently shown to have racist tendencies, and obviously was not disciplined enough by his parents. He is a despicable man.

      "Yair Netanyahu reportedly advises his father, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, on how to use social media. But his own Facebook activity has repeatedly sparked controversy in Israel — and made headlines worldwide.

      Most recently, in the wee hours Wednesday, Yair Netanyahu, 26, weighed in on the violence at a white supremacist rally over the weekend in Charlottesville, Va. He suggested in English that American left-wing groups — the anti-fascist Antifa movement and the Black Lives Matter movement against systemic racism — are more dangerous than neo-Nazis.

      “To put things in perspective. I’m a Jew, I’m an Israeli, the neo nazi scums [sic] in Virginia hate me and my country. But they belong to the past. Their breed is dying out,” he wrote."

      “However the thugs of Antifa and BLM who hate my country (and America too in my view) just as much are getting stronger and stronger and becoming super dominant in American universities and public life.”

      He is Benjamin and Sara Netanyahu's son, so it should be no surprise he behaves this way.

  • 'Voice of boycott' was heard in Montgomery and South Africa, why not Israel? Roger Waters writes in 'NYT'
    • Amnesty Int. slams Israeli threats and punishment over call for settlements boycotts.

      "Palestinian human rights defenders have faced death threats and harassment that a veteran analyst has suggested are linked to an Israeli government-directed campaign of “black ops.”

      Last year, Amnesty International expressed its fears for the “safety and liberty of Palestinian human rights defender Omar Barghouti, and other boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) activists, following calls alluding to threats, including of physical harm and deprivation of basic rights, made by Israeli ministers.”

      https://electronicintifada.net/blogs/ali-abunimah/amnesty-slams-israeli-threats-punish-it-over-settlement-boycott-call

      Death threats? Punishment? Can you call this thuggish? nazi-like? Undemocratic?
      All of the above? Israel keeps breaking international laws, and violently threatens anyone, and any international agency, that wants them held responsible, and face the consequences. We let them.

  • Israeli support for Myanmar is the natural alliance of regimes based on ethnic supremacy
    • Israel even tried to sell nuclear warheads to apartheid South Africa. Where there is death and destruction, human rights abuses, and mass killings, you might find Israel's dirty finger prints somewhere around. "Never again" seems only for their own people.

      "Secret South African documents reveal that Israel offered to sell nuclear warheads to the apartheid regime, providing the first official documentary evidence of the state's possession of nuclear weapons.

      The "top secret" minutes of meetings between senior officials from the two countries in 1975 show that South Africa's defence minister, PW Botha, asked for the warheads and Shimon Peres, then Israel's defence minister and now its president, responded by offering them "in three sizes". The two men also signed a broad-ranging agreement governing military ties between the two countries that included a clause declaring that "the very existence of this agreement" was to remain secret.

    • "Billions of dollars to Israel means little in the grand scheme of things."

      I disagree. 62 percent of American think that is too much money to a piddling little nation, that seem to have parasitic tendencies when it comes to it's relationship with the US. Right now with hurricanes and the needs of the American people, the billions in aid and weapons (recently increased under Obama), will be better spent on the American people.

      "Yet, as thousands of “Israel-first” citizen lobbyists descend on Capitol Hill tomorrow as part of the annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) — the largest and most influential of the many groups comprising the “Israel lobby” — concern for these millions of Americans will not be on its legislative agenda. 

Instead, AIPAC will be lobbying to avert the impact of sequestration on record-breaking levels of U.S. military aid to Israel. It will also be pushing for legislation to boost the U.S.-Israel “strategic alliance” and green light an Israeli attack on Iran, measures which will both inevitably entail demands for additional U.S. taxpayer-funded weapons to Israel."

    • The biggest need Israel has for the US is the billions of dollars and weapons in aid, the protection and support at the UN every time Israel is criticized, and condemned, at the UN, and the need to interfere in our elections (through AIPAC) and in our foreign policies. Take away all that and Israel would be nothing, and hated even more.
      We do not need Israel to "maintain" our status quo. The US did not become the world's greatest superpower relying on Israel, unlike Israel's dependency on the US.

  • Democratic candidate for Illinois gov'r fires his running mate over BDS
    • Yet another enabler politician. He either is depending on AIPAC contributions and support, or just does not know to show Israel some tough love, which is long overdue.

  • The alleged peace process reaches farcical lows
    • It is highly unlikely that an inexperienced, clueless man, can achieve what leaders with years of experience, and knowledge of the conflict has failed to do. Perhaps this naive man thinks the support his family has given towards the illegal settlements, entitles him to play peacemaker, and makes him knowledgeable about the 50 plus years of occupation. Knowing how cozy he is with the Nut in Chief, he will only offer the Palestinians slim pickings, that cunning Nut will offer, and at the end the Palestinians will once again be blamed for refusing such a "generous" offer.
      Jared is the dishonest broker who will fail miserably.

    • I was being sarcastic of course. :))

    • Again, It is unbelievable that the zionists have been successful in convincing the world, that it is THEY who are the victims, despite being the occupier, have a deadly military, and the newest of weapons made by themselves and the world's top arms manufacturer, the US. The rationale is crazy, but it seem it is the unarmed victims of the occupation are the aggressors, who keep resisting this bloody occupation, while their lands are being stolen, and kids are being killed.
      Ah those poor zionists, how much more must be endure, and how much more will America pretend to believe the BS?

  • Conan O'Brien frolics with Netanyahu and the Israeli army
    • Is he expecting a lucrative contract from the zionist media, running for office in the US, or simply wanting to do some PR work for Israel?
      Maybe it is a junket trip like our shameless congress members take:

      "At least 53 Congressional representatives are on a week-long trip to Israel, paid for by the American Israel Education Foundation (AIEF), an arm of the powerful lobbying group AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee).

      AIEF’s budget is approximately $80 million, which it uses to take diverse groups to Israel. More than a dozen Latino leaders from the Southwest U.S. have just returned from an AIEF funded five-day trip to Israel that ended Aug 6, and a trip for top political operatives was conducted in June."
      http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47573.htm

      If Israel can afford $80 million all expenses paid trip to Israel for American politicians, why are WE still sending them aid?

  • Prominent Israeli rabbi preaches rape in war time
    • They do have their share of mean, racist Rabbis, don't they? I Remember Rabbi Ovadia Yosef
      the Holy man who said of Arabs:

      "It is forbidden to be merciful to them. You must send missiles to them and annihilate them. They are evil and damnable."

      Here we are constantly told that Islam is an evil religion, and their "Imam"s are trying to influence them into extremism and violence, but everyone in the media seems quiet about this religion. Rape is okay if by the chosen ones?

      Imagine the Islamaphobic comments attacking the religion had this been said by some Imam or Mullah!

  • Israeli forces injure 8-year-old Palestinian and detain 7-year-old in clashes in occupation
  • Andrea Mitchell suggests State Dep't staged 'fake news' in Jerusalem with Kushner, Netanyahu and no press
    • Kushner was heard saying it is not going to be easy. This is yet another fake headline by the Trump administration, that goes nowhere. What makes Kushner think he can achieve something that others, including diplomats and leaders, with years of experience, can never do? This is an administration that makes grand announcements, and after that it is either failure or silence.
      Kushner is a biased "peace maker", whose family have financially contributed to the world condemned illegal settlements, and he is also supposed to be a good buddy to the other crook Netanyahu. The Palestinians are wise enough to know this is another US attempt to keep the support of the occupier going. They will be offered nothing, and then blamed for refusing yet another offer for peace. A familiar pattern.

  • State Department says committing to two-states is 'bias' as Kushner is sent to broker peace
    • The US has never been an honest broker in this conflict, aiding, and arming, one side to the hilt, and vetoing endless UN resolutions condemning Israel's endless crimes against the Palestinians.

      The Kushner family has apparently donated thousands of dollars towards projects in the illegal settlements, and Jared is supposed to be good friends with Nutty, the man being investigated for corruption. This shows a strong bias for a peace broker.

      Anyone believing there will be some resolution, and that Jared will act like a savior and put right, what leaders with much more experience has tried to do for decades, is only delusional, and fooling themselves.

      When Jared realizes he has failed, the WH will throw the Palestinians under the bus (yet again) and blame them for not agreeing to what I already think would be very unfair terms, favoring the zionists. This will be a waste of time and tax payer's money (like most of Trumps grand plans).

  • As many as 1 million Israelis have left for the U.S.
    • Israeli leaders, when it suits them, keep saying they are under "existential threat" consistently, which must give their people a feeling of insecurity. Perhaps now that is backfiring.

      Maybe if Israel ends the decades old occupation, stops the land grabs, and the inhumane treatment of those they occupy, they will not provoke their victims into wanting to resist, even violently. It is a natural reaction by desperate people in a hopeless situation.
      How long can Israel keep blaming it's victims? At least the rest of the world seems to get that.

  • 'We came to school and found the school destroyed': Israeli forces demolish West Bank school hours before children's first day
    • Maybe it is time someone informed the most important peace maker in the world, Jared Kushner, about this outrageous crime by the zionists. He speaks of peace for both people, but it seems the violence and viciousness, always comes from ONE side. How can there be any kind of peace when these crimes keep getting committed by the occupier?

    • If this was Iran, you can bet even Nutty would be feigning outrage at how mean and evil they are.

    • What a sad story, and a hopeless situation. The zionists have consistently shown nothing but arrogance, and disregard for basic human rights for those they occupy. They steal the lands, water, collectively punish them, and show their mean streak quite often, this time to prevent children from getting an education. While they brag of being educated people, it seem they want to prevent the Palestinians from succeeding in their own lives. I am ashamed that the US congress does nothing and keeps enabling these deplorable people to continue these inhumane crimes, and shame on Saudi Arabia and other nations that now hold hands with the vicious zionists., instead of helping their own.
