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.

  • In Tel Rumeida, you can be arrested for laughing
    • So Nazi like. The IDF must feel like big men/women holding mighty weapons and acting in such a menacing manner. The world should be ashamed for doing nothing but being indifferent to this inhumane treatment of innocent people.

  • Roger Cohen's epiphany
    • Either it was denial, or the ziocane is slowly but surely wearing off. Why is it that these zionist loyalists were unable to see what we all could?

  • The dark side of Jewish consciousness: manufactured anti-Semitism
  • Clinton aide called Netanyahu a ruthless 'wing nut' and Israel 'depressing'
    • Yeah, he is a wingnut and Israel's crimes are depressing, but hey they keep giving us the big moola's for our campaign, so let's pretend to be nice to him.

  • Israel paints fighter jet pink to raise breast cancer awareness while preventing cancer patients in Gaza from receiving treatment
    • The hypocrisy stinks. They are masters of projecting a goody-goody image, but reality is they are very mean to these helpless Palestinians.

  • New campaign uses racist posters to target Palestinian campus activists by name
    • I agree with Eljay.

      Being polite and restrained has not helped so far against the ugliness that comes from the other side. They should not care what Geller and Gaffney thinks, they do not seem to have any consideration for those they attack, so taking them into any consideration is a waste of time.

      We have seen many factual posters that simply state facts like the fact that we keeps sending an occupier billions in aid which only encourages to keep their occupation going and the disgusting theft of lands. Instead of lying and casting hatred for the Palestinian people, a simple ad in the bus calling for the boycott of Israel is reasonable enough. As I mentioned before there is so much material available, the many UN resolutions will back that.

    • So far being polite and showing restraint has not helped. I am sure some facts pointing out to the fact that our tax dollars are encouraging a decades long occupation, and the occupiers to keep stealing lands (all true) might make a point. The ugliness we keep seeing from zionist supporters have been going on for too long, and ignoring it with silence did not stop them.
      We did see some really good posters on buses referring to the boycott of Israel did bring attention to this ridiculous situation. Who cares what Pamela Geller and her ilk thinks anyway. People know that Geller and Gaffney are zionist tools in the US.

    • It is time the Palestinian students fought the poster war with equally filthy posters. There is so much material to work with - the zionists have occupied and stolen for decades, killed civilians by the thousands, and there are pictures of children being pulled out of the rubble when homes were attacked by Israel's precision bombs. They would make good posters.
      Time to fight fire with fire.

  • 'My solution is just equality for all of the people': Israeli activist Renen Raz dies at 28
    • May he rest in peace. One of the decent, good guys. His presence will be missed in this never ending struggle. He was brave to work for the rights of the oppressed, and risked incurring the wrath of their oppressors.

  • What if the Syria no-fly zone won't fly?
    • It is very, very sad, that the results of this huge mess, are innocent civilians, especially little children, suffering beyond imagination. Assad/US and it's allies/Russia/ISIS, and those playing proxy wars, do not really give a damn for the people. War mongers involved in this conflict use the people as the justification of their involvement, but if they really cared this would not have been so complicated. Meanwhile it seems little children are dying while fleeing, and those remaining behind are dying of terrible diseases. This reminds me of the children of Iraq who suffered without medical help and medicines during the time of sanctions against Iraq. At the end we bombed them anyway. It is so sad that as always it is the innocent people that suffer most.

      "Before the war, public hospitals provided free medical care to all cancer patients. But violence isn’t the only thing hitting hospitals hard. The Syrian government says that EU and U.S. sanctions on the country have made the work of public hospitals near impossible.

      Dr. Mazen Haddad, Director of General Children’s hospital, says with the sanctions imposed on Syria, they can’t get the medical equipment or medication.

      “We can’t get it from Europe, which is where we used to get our supplies. And while public hospitals continue to receive all the cases, we can only provide 50 percent of the needed cancer medication,” said Dr. Haddad. “So we had to ask parents to buy the treatment themselves, though prices have multiplied twenty-fold. We are admitting the children, but we can’t treat them all.”

      Many argue that the government is spending on the wrong thing. Children’s hospitals, after all, may not be a priority for a country at war.

      Sanctions have affected every aspect of life here. Perhaps this is why activists have launched a campaign to lift the sanctions, with posters spread across the capital."

  • Cut from Clinton speech: Palestinians 'yearn for freedom... behind checkpoints and roadblocks'
    • With shekels and dollars pouring in to political campaigns in the US, politicians are willing to drop any reference to the suffering of the Palestinians. After all they are poor powerless people, who cannot help the politician win their elections, and besides they need to say those now familiar words of how much they support and will protect the world's most disliked occupier.
      We have a filthy political system here, and an unholy alliance with an alien lobby.

  • Jeffrey Goldberg should come with a warning label
    • Goldberg should have come with an expiration date - his pro Israel stance has clouded his judgement, and makes him a very, very biased journalist. Perhaps he should move to Israel and start a publication calling it the Zionist Journal, at least he will feel at home over there.

  • Israeli Defense Minister says next Gaza war will be the last 'because we will completely destroy them'
    • No one will ever bell that cat. If they wanted to, they could have, but for foul reasons, they keep enabling it, showering it with aid, and giving in to it's endless demands.

      The Palestinian people should be given arms and told to do what is best for them. The international community seems apathetic to their suffering. There is no other way out.

    • Despite that lame threat, I doubt they can every "wipe out" any militants without massacring thousands of civilians, and so far it seems they cannot achieve their objectives with their mighty American and Israeli made weapons. Until they decide to end the occupation and give the Palestinians their freedom and rights, they will always be facing the same reaction from people sick of their suffering. These zionists pretend that a military occupation, stealing lands, and oppressing people do not warrant a violent reaction from the victims. Imagine how they would have reacted had the situation been reversed.

  • Clinton should cut 'how Israel is treating the Palastinians' from DC speech -- Podesta in email
    • It is unbelievable how American leaders keep spewing total zionist propaganda to justify our role in this conflict. Yes, indeed it certainly sounds like poor pathetic Israel is the victim in all this, and live in terror of powerless civilians. She conveniently forgot that we are sending billions of aid and arming the "poor victims" with the most sophisticated weapons. How many Palestinians died by American weapons?

  • Clinton to drop Israel from 'public' speeches, put it back in 'with donors' -- email
    • Interesting article. It gives great insight to exactly what is going on in the Clinton campaign. I have noticed since of late she does not mention that "I" word, refer to it, nor mention that we should protect our "only" ally in the ME. Sometimes when she does, you know it comes out of context to her speech, and is only mouthing it to please her financial backers - the rich zionists in American clothing. Many of those "Dem activists" are turned off with Clinton's devotion to an alien nation that had it not been so interfering in our political system by their lobbies, would have been sanctioned by now for a brutal occupation and human rights abuses.

      The simple reason that I fear Bibi will get the red carpet treatment in the WH, and that she will take this sick relationship to the "next level", makes me NOT want to vote for this woman. I guess we have to be resigned to the fact that no American President will have the spine to hold the occupier accountable for its crimes, stop protecting it from world condemnation, stop the aid and weapons flowing, and demand it stop the occupation, in our lifetime.

  • Gaza farmers rebound despite Israeli siege
    • Good for these hard working farmers. They seem to have a determination to succeed. The situation with the water must be a challenged, however I am sure they can get help to overcome it. I hope geographically this is not near those mean settlers, they have a nasty habit of ruining crops and stealing olives and trees. Perhaps they cannot bear to see the Palestinian people succeed in anything. Good luck to the Palestinians who strive to show the world they are capable of much bigger things.

  • New statement calls on the movement to focus on Palestine, not divisive internal conflicts
  • B'Tselem calls on world to 'intervene' to stop 'more perfect occupation,' and Netanyahu goes ballistic
    • I agree Inbound39, it is way overdue. Although he did give them zillions in aid, I sense that Obama has distanced himself from our only true ally in the ME, annoyed that they are not cooperating with peace talks for a 2SS. Still, I think he could have used that leverage to get their behinds to sit down for peace talks.

    • They are all peas in a pod the entire lot. I wish the moderator asked Clinton if SHE would refuse to be influenced by Israel, it's leaders, and refuse Jewish money that is linked to Israel.

  • In email, Clinton calls for a 'Potemkin' peace process
    • Those who keep doing Israel's bidding are all foreign agents. They put Israel above their own nation when it comes to our policies, and will go against their own President if needed.
      It is a sorry state of affairs.

    • Actions speak louder than words (in this case leaked emails), and it is obvious that HC will continue the same lousy policies where Israel is concerned, the unwavering support, bucket loads of aid, and endless weapons In fact she has vowed to take it all to the next level (Yikes!)

      We should not be surprised at what the leaked emails say - they only prove that she is willing to be a hundred percent supportive of a hated occupier, land thieves, and human rights violators.
      She is a hard core politician, and the suffering of the Palestinian people is really of no importance, after all the Palestinians cannot help her political ambitions but their occupier can.

      What campaign donations can do in the US.

  • New ad campaign in college papers calls out Israeli leaders' bigotry against Palestinians
    • Good article Annie. This is great work by PalAd. When you put them all together and see it as an entirety, you realize these are blood thirsty, violent leaders of a nation, who wields the power over those they occupy, hate, and want to see them suffer. We have heard ad nauseam zionists whining that the Arabs hate Jews and Israel, and here is the reality.

  • Gaza's population hits 2 million
    • Congratulations to the parents of little Waleed. Surely the UN, UK, the US, and other nations, cannot ignore the fact that there are 2 million people living under a brutal occupation, and are subjected to human rights violations by their occupier? It is inhumane to have people live in such a densely population situation, while their stinking occupier is stealing lands and building illegal settlements that seem to mock the victims. They should kick out the illegal squatters and give these homes to those entitled to it.

  • Trump and Clinton blast UNESCO statement on Jerusalem
    • Good point. They want ALL the pandering for themselves, and all the aid too for that matter.

    • It is time Clinton, Trump, and other zionist supporters realize that out there in the world there are leaders who sympathize with the plight of the Palestinians, and will do the right thing by them.
      They are not intimidated nor bribed by the culprit occupiers to do their bidding. Shame on the US for supporting and arming an occupier.

  • Necessary Transformations: Ending the claim to exclusivity
    • It is ironic that here in the US you can insult the President, leaders, and even condemn the Muslims, but no one (esp. in the media) dares to either criticize Israel, it's terrible policies, or bring attention to the ongoing human rights violations. The hate machine that accuses you of being ant-semitic makes sure of that. There have been some brave souls who dared to speak out but they have been harshly dealt with in the media by agents who pretend they want to safeguard the best interests of the US, while working to protect and support an alien nation.

    • I don't know much about the Jewish faith, but I am sure no religion would condone the behavior of any people that occupies, steals lands, kills innocent civilians, lies to justify those killings, and are accused of human rights violations. If there is any religion out there that will support such "sins" I would like to know. There are certain elements in EVERY religion that hijacks that religion for their own devious purposes, and keeps using it to achieve their wicked objectives, and here is a good example of one. It seems tolerance, freedom, and compassion, have been rejected in many religions by these evil ones. In the name of religion people are suffering and being killed.

      It is great to see people speaking out against their own, when they know their religion is being misrepresented.

  • Despite groping revelations, Israeli-American Trump supporter says all five of his daughters will vote Trump
    • Being outraged about someone's despicable actions is a very selective thing, when it comes to choosing sides. Not many American leaders are outraged about an occupation that has lasted over 60 years, and the daily theft of lands when it comes to the Israelis. Obviously this man and his daughters have no decent standards in choosing a President. Anyone that belongs in the gutter is fine, even if it is bad for the country. They are not the only ones.

  • 'State of Terror,' by Thomas Suárez
  • The battle over Obama's legacy, featuring Netanyahu, Zogby, liberal Zionists, and 88 senators
    • Testing, but will try...

      I have no faith in Obama anymore and that he will eventually do the right thing for the long suffering Palestinian people. The entire world, including their Arab brothers have long abandoned them. The fact that Netanyahu has threatened us many times to not go beyond the zionist line, and the mere fact that we keep supporting their occupation and land grabs (despite the false outrage), shows the US government does not care a damn about human rights and democracy.

  • Israeli diplomat Oren says France and Britain are 'unsure whether their nations are worth fighting for'
    • The abnormality that we can see is a serial occupier refusing to end an occupation, and wanting to control that neighborhood. Oren is Netanyahu's servant who has served the zionists faithfully, and any abnormal statements he makes will go down well in the zionist world - for them the lunacy of an occupation and illegal settlements seems to be acceptable, and even the norm.

    • Then you wonder why such "compassionate" human beings keep treating their next door neighbors with utter contempt, keep them under occupation, and steals their lands.
      Perhaps they still don't know the definition of "compassion".

  • 'Perpetual occupation' -- White House slams Israel over new settlement
  • With Governor Brown's signature, California joins the attack on BDS
  • NetanyaBOO!: Page Six punching bag Benjamin Netanyahu heckled at 'Hamilton'
    • I guess Booby man was thoroughly disappointed by the reception he got from regular folk in New York - after all he gets the red carpet treatment by Congress, leaders and even Presidential candidates. Perhaps he may now have an inkling that he is disliked (like his nation) and there are people out there in the world who do not like what he is doing to the Palestinians.

      Then again, he is too full of himself, he may miss that message.

  • Netanyahu gets face time with Trump and Clinton ahead of first presidential debate
    • It is very telling that despite the timing and heavy schedules, ahead of their first debate, two candidates for the US Presidency, has made time to meet with a man with no integrity and known to be a liar. What does it say about America and it's leaders? For Drumpf it means a photo op, and an opportunity to boast that he has met with a world leader, which he can never compare to Clinton's record, and for Clinton it means Jewish money, AIPAC support, and to reassure the king of zionists she will make sure he gets the red carpet treatment, aid and weapons will keep flowing, and she will continue to throw the Palestinians under the bus.
      Three flawed characters that no one can trust, and known to be deplorable liars.

      Americans should wonder why at this stage of the game they took valuable time to meet with this war criminal.

      An anonymous US official said it best:

      "JERUSALEM, Oct 29 (Reuters) - An anonymous U.S. official’s reported description of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a “chickenshit,” or worthless coward, drew a sharp response on Wednesday from the Israeli leader - no stranger to acrimony with the Obama administration.

      The American broadside, in an interview in The Atlantic magazine, followed a month of heated exchanges between the Netanyahu government and Washington over settlement building in Israeli-annexed East Jerusalem, which Palestinians seek as the capital of a future state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

      “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit,” the unidentified official was quoted as saying, using Netanyahu’s nickname and a slang insult certain to redden the ears of the U.S.-educated former commando.

      “The good thing about Netanyahu is that he’s scared to launch wars,” the official said, in apparent reference to past hints of possible Israeli military action against Iran’s nuclear program. “The bad thing about him is that he won’t do anything to reach an accommodation with the Palestinians or with the Sunni Arab states.”

      Netanyahu, the official was reported to have said, is interested only in “protecting himself from political defeat ... He’s got no guts.”

      From an Huffington Post article.

  • Shmuley Boteach seeks to blackmail Obama over his legacy
    • I wonder if it will be Clinton or Drumpf that will bring up Israel first, vow to love and protect it, and try to outdo the other one while doing it.

      "Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to intervene, once again, in U.S. presidential elections. He is about to help, once again, the Republican Party. He is raising concerns and sparking ire, as before, in the White House and the Democratic Party. Like a compulsive gambler who returns to the same roulette table where he lost a fortune, Netanyahu is placing our chips on the wheel once again in the hope that he’ll finally hit the jackpot."

    • I meant while Schmuckly was putting up ads, and various senators were signing a letter asking Obama to not pursue the 2SS, the king of zionists himself is putting on the pressure. I think it is an organized effort by the zios to pressurize the President. I am sure others are also ordered to do the same through AIIPAC. Of course no zionists will ever agree to a 2SS, right now they are content with the status quo, are gaining more lands, have control over their neighbors, and do not need peace and freedom like those they occupy.

    • On CNN just now, they are commenting that a day before the debates, Clinton and Drumpf are both meeting with Nutty Yahoo today. It has taken years for Bill Clinton to know who really the super power is. It is obvious considering how much the WH, Congress, leaders, and the media bow down to it, in fact our Presidential candidates pay homage to its leader hours before they debate. As for Nutty man, he knows he must make nice with both, and making sure they have some control over both.

      From an old article:

      "Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has never worried much about what foreign dignitaries think of him. Barack Obama is certainly not the first American president to find him a tough customer. In 1996, Bill Clinton remarked privately after his first meeting with Bibi, "Who the fuck does he think he is? Who's the fucking superpower here?" Now, however, and at potentially great cost for Israel, he may be going too far."

    • What do you know, even the king of the zionists is pressurizing the President of the United States, to NOT go ahead and push for a 2SS and a statehood for the deserving Palestinians. It should make any rational person wonder as to why this man does not want PEACE for his people. Stealing lands and Occupation, YES, but peace NO. It is easy to call a Palestinian state a "terror state" but facts show that the side that can be considered a "terror state" is the one who is occupying, stealing, and sending precision bombs into homes.

      http://www.juancole.com/2016/09/netanyahu-establish-palestinian.html

    • They are afraid that in his final days as President, Obama will finally do the RIGHT THING and try to push forward a 2SS, which will only make the zionist master plan have a major set back. They WANT to keep occupying and stealing lands that belong to those they wield power over, the helpless Palestinians who have had no help from world powers. US leaders send a paltry (compared to the mega billions we send the occupier) sum of aid, just to keep the Palestinians temporarily afloat, and that the occupation does not end in deaths due to starvation.

      Schmuckly Boteach is a disgusting slime ball, who is doing the dirty work for the zionists, even challenging his own President, in this instance. He is making sure that this nation keeps making the right decisions for an alien rogue nation, even if it is the WRONG one for us.

      These zionists in American clothing are like little parasite, sucking the blood off its host.
      I wish we could send all zionist sympathizers back to their mothership.

  • 'There is no stronger disorganizing force in American Jewish life than Israel'
    • Those free birth right trips to Israel for American Jews is part of the big effort to make American Jews feel guilted into being loyal and supportive of that alien nation. This has nothing to do with the religion, although that pays a big part in that brainwashing effort, but it is also that "we all must make sure that we protect Israel from all the bad guys surrounding it", the only such nation that has managed to make people of a certain religion connect the religion to a nation. Anything negative anyone says about Israel is "anti-Semitic" that goes for all Israel's crimes too. They are not supposed to question anything about the occupation, land grabs, or the fact that the Israeli government kills civilians almost on a daily basis, to keep that occupation going. Many American Jews blindly suppose anything Israel does, for to question or disagree with Israeli leaders is conveniently labelled "self-hating". In fact they pay thousands of mindless minions to spew this nonsense in websites, just to keep this narrative going.

  • In full page NYT ad, liberal Zionist group calls for ethnic segregation to retain Jewish majority within Israel
    • Many unhappy with the gazillions we are giving the zionists, according to this tweet. I guess some are finally realizing that we need help we need at home.

      https://twitter.com/MaxBlumenthal

    • Just like the "O" word, the "A" word will never be used in the US by American leaders nor the biased media. The two Presidential candidates will be meeting the king of the zionazis this weekend, as His Lowness wants to make sure they are both ready to kiss up to Israel, and that the aid and unwavering support will continue, so that the occupation can continue uninterrupted. Hillary has plans to roll out the red carpet for the war criminal and Jared will make sure papa in law will do so too.

      Meanwhile the zionazis continue their reign of terror:

      The murders of Palestinian children continues, goyim lives never matter.

      Four Palestinian children killed in five days

  • The two-stroke solution
    • Look at that smug look from Netanyahu, it looks like he has swallowed that $38 billion canary.

      Now that they have extracted billions more from us, it will be back to the same devious, arrogant behavior from Israel. They were lying low until everything was sealed up, but expect the same ugliness from the occupier.

    • A sorry state of affairs here in the US. Although this was a PR effort and a great photo op for both sides, the bottom line is, American Presidents come and go, and Israel knows whether they like it or not, all President must toe that line, send that aid, weapons, and show unwavering support for even this slime ball like Netanyahu.

      Aren't zionist sympathizers supposed to do so?

      Perhaps Phil is right, Obama needs wealthy Jewish donors to build that library.

  • In a world of conflict, peace is celebrated only one day out of the year
  • 'Beholden to AIPAC' -- progressive senators Warren, Murphy, Brown sign letter seeking to limit Obama's actions
    • Kathleen, I agree that Clinton has questionable ties with many Jewish/Israeli people, but then that will be acceptable by most people here. After all Israel is our only "true" ally in the ME, and the recipient of the most aid we bestow on any nation, in this case a wealthy one. Israel is privileged and always has been smothered in love by our politicians and media.

      Russia is the big Devil that we despise and have no affection for, and it will be laughable to see Drumpfette make nice with them, after all the rumors say he has many business links to it worth millions. We are going to be in a fine mess whoever wins.

    • Yes, we are under an occupation too, but no one seems to notice. But then again we have the enablers who call themselves Americans, but really they are zionists in American clothing.

    • Mixed signals:

      Obama signed that generous check for billions in aid to the illegal settlement builder, and yet...

      Obama to Netanyahu: Settlement Growth Is Threatening the Two-state Solution
      In New York meeting, which lasted about half an hour, Netanyahu pushed back against Obama's remark, U.S. official says. Possibility of U.S. move in UN Security Council was not discussed, Israeli official says.
      read more: http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.743523

      Conclusion" Netanyahu cracked his whip and Obama's efforts simply fizzled.

      Nutty leader knows that AIPAC/Congress will work hard to support the occupiers.

    • With our politicians and leaders there is always a price. AIPAC is not looking after American interests, it is mostly a subservient entity of a devious nation, that uses it as a tool to extract all it can from the US, disregarding basic rules of decency, as most of our true allies have shown towards us, whatever the disagreements are. The mere fact that progressive like Warren and others finally capitulate to the power Israel wields over this country, and falls in line to how zionist policies dictate. I have travelled to many parts of this world, and it is common knowledge that the US protects, supports, and allows, zionist policies, including the occupation.

      As for these congress people, they are selfishly thinking of what THEY can get out of this entire American predicament. AIPAC's filthy support and money for re-election perhaps, and to hell with the needs of the American people.

  • In Brookings poll, most Dems say $38 billion aid package to Israel is 'way too much' while the GOP is split
  • US aid deal gives green light to Israel's erasure of Palestine
    • Boomer, I was a little surprised he mentioned this, but NONE in the zio media seem to have brought that up, after all we have just signed a very expensive aid package to those that think they can occupy Palestinian lands and steal it, and yet Obama simply played bad cop by pretending we do not like that occupation. Our actions say different. Surely that is newsworthy?

    • Yes, Israel is the "mini-me" of the US. Maybe that is why the US allows them to get away with massacres, lies, and the occupation. Two peas in a pod, one a welfare queen, the other the sugar daddy.

    • I also heard him criticize the Palestinians for the violence, and then (surprise, surprise!) criticize Israel for the illegal settlements. I could not believe he used the "O" word, but then this is his last speech at the UN and he has nothing to lose. I wish he was a little more elaborate in the criticism.

      Israel Can Not Permanently Occupy Palestinian Lands: Obama

      http://www.caribflame.com/2016/09/israel-can-not-permanently-occupy-palestinian-lands-obama/

  • Powell emails expose depth of media self-censorship re Israeli nukes
    • Yes, he could have also followed that up by stating that he understands the Palestinians have reasons to protest. It seems the US and Israel are incapable of facing the consequences of their violence (in this case occupation and land grabs). Here in the US, no one ever questions why we keep being the target of terrorist attacks, and perhaps we should look at other nations that never attack Muslim nations, and free from such attacks. Obama could have elaborated and connected the violence as the result of decades long occupation, but of course he did not.

  • Two women's boats set sail for Gaza in effort to break blockade
    • Next time they had better keep those boats under heavy security, and keep it a big secret, like Israel does with it's nukes!

    • You have a point. If I remember correctly, this was the same story with a previous attempt.
      Israeli agents are good at tampering, meddling, false flags, and assassinations.

    • They are so brave, especially after the last flotilla from Turkey ended in murders, and Israeli commandos attacking the boats. I hope they get all the publicity they deserve, and that they will all be safe. I also hope there are independent observers close by to watch them closely, so that the predictable reaction from the occupier will be observed and maybe video taped.

      The last time the Turkish boats were attacked, all videos and cameras were taken away, I guess the attackers could not risk the world seeing first hand, their violence.

  • 'Shame on you,' Israel, for turning Obama 'into some Jew hater,' Tom Friedman says
    • It is far too late for Tom Friedman to suddenly wake up and chastise Israel( and Netanyahu) for where it stands today. Netanyahu has whined, threatened, played the anti-semitism and Holocaust cards, and has been able to get away with just about everything, the occupation, the land thefts, the indiscriminate bombing of Gaza, and lying about everything.

      Zionists who call themselves Americans are partly at fault for enabling Netanyahu, and allowing lobbies from an alien nation to disrespect our nation, control our policies, and insult our President, all while demanding more aid from it. When are the brainwashed going to do what is right for the US first, and stop this insane loyalty to Israel? It is time the American people were told that the aid we keep sending Israel can be put to far better use for our country.

  • 'There's no occupation'
    • All of the above, true. It also makes us complicit in all that they do, in fact we make sure they are well fed and armed, to continue doing so. A very sorry state of affairs.

    • "“Israel Incapable of Telling Truth About Water It Steals From Palestinians "

      Correction: Israel is incapable of telling the truth about the lands they steal, the water they steal, the murders they commit, and it seem incapable of being honest and admitting they are breaking all international laws by being a (detestable) occupier, and that they occupy and control the Palestinian people. These are the nazis of our time, and can be as vicious sometimes. They lie and the US pretends to believe them. What does that make us?

  • Amos Oz would never stand in the street in Tel Aviv shouting 'Kill all the Arabs'
  • Jeffrey Goldberg will be silent till he finds a way to spin all the bad-for-the-Jews news from Israel
  • Israel's bogus civil war
    • Talking about bogus...it seems the claims that Palestinian students were anti-semitic at a NY college were investigated, and found to be FALSE.

      Oh how these zionists lie, and lie, and lie. That card has been overplayed far too many times.

      "An independent investigation has vindicated a pro-Palestinian group charged with fostering an anti-Semitic climate at the nation’s largest urban public university.

      Two lawyers hired by the City University of New York to investigate alleged instances of anti-Semitism found that expressions of political opposition to the State of Israel are not inherently anti-Semitic, and that such expressions are protected under the First Amendment.

      The investigation and the events that triggered it are part of a broader trend of campuses becoming political battlegrounds, where heavyweight Israel advocacy groups, like the Zionist Organization of America, spar with pro-Palestinian activists. Students for Justice in Palestine, the subject of this investigation, is a frequent target of such groups — but not the only one.

      “The report finds what we’ve said all along, that the ZOA’s claims that SJP engaged in anti-Semitic activity are completely unsubstantiated,” said Radhika Sainath, an attorney with Palestine Legal."

  • Netanyahu's ghost on 'ethnic cleansing' video is rightwing pollster Luntz
    • Obama must be suffering from some insecurity personally, if he has to keep pleasing those who have shown nothing but disrespect. There are so many WHY's we need to ask, when it comes to being complicit in Israel's endless crimes, and most importantly why we do not threaten to cut the biggest welfare queen off, until it acts more civilized. We should also ask WHY we allow a dangerous foreign entity to have access, and interfere in our policies, and why they are allowed to write some.

    • Then we keep supporting a decades long occupation, illegal settlements, and hand over even more weapons to kill unarmed civilians....WHY?

      "Israel and the United States have reached an agreement that will provide Israel an unprecedented amount of military aid over a decade.

      The State Department said the agreement, known as a memo of understanding, will be signed Wednesday afternoon. Jacob Nagel, Israel’s acting national security adviser, arrived in Washington on Tuesday morning to sign on behalf of his country."

    • Interesting article Phil and Yakov, here is an "Independent" article to support the information you give us. Luntz is a despicable man, who has unleashed the venomous zionist supporters we see in websites all over the world, spewing false propaganda as suggested by the Master of Hasbara.

      "There is a reason for this enhancement of the PR skills of Israeli spokesmen. Going by what they say, the playbook they are using is a professional, well-researched and confidential study on how to influence the media and public opinion in America and Europe. Written by the expert Republican pollster and political strategist Dr Frank Luntz, the study was commissioned five years ago by a group called The Israel Project, with offices in the US and Israel, for use by those "who are on the front lines of fighting the media war for Israel".

      Every one of the 112 pages in the booklet is marked "not for distribution or publication" and it is easy to see why. The Luntz report, officially entitled "The Israel project's 2009 Global Language Dictionary, was leaked almost immediately to Newsweek Online, but its true importance has seldom been appreciated. It should be required reading for everybody, especially journalists, interested in any aspect of Israeli policy because of its "dos and don'ts" for Israeli spokesmen."

  • Netanyahu's big lie
    • This cartoon is so descriptive of the entire situation. The zionazis are great at projection. Only those ignorant will believe that the side that kills more human being,s is the side that is being ethnically cleansed. That is zionazi logic for you.

  • Israeli government projects 'ethnic cleansing' on Palestinians
    • Looks who is ethnically cleansing by accident again:

      Palestinian girl killed after being run over by Israeli settler in apparent road accident

      Poor thing was standing outside her home.

    • And what do you know, it seems the Drumpf campaign prefers to kiss up to that large zionist behind when it comes to that ethnic cleansing drama:

      "Trump Campaign Sides With Netanyahu: Palestinians Seek 'Ethnic Cleansing' of Jews
      Trump’s adviser on U.S.-Israel relations tells Haaretz that Palestinians want 'their so-called state' to be, 'as the Nazis said, judenrein' or devoid of Jews.

    • That is quite a descriptive saying. In this case, appropriate.

    • Here is the article on this subject from Haaretz. It seems one of America's zionist supporters, the writer of hasbara lies, has been instrumental in helping Netanyahu's controversial video:

      "By the way, someone in Washington found that the source for large swaths of Netanyahu’s remarks and arguments were taken from a 2009 document put together by Frank Luntz, a prominent U.S. political consultant who is identified with the Republican Party and those in the American far-right. Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, who is a close associate of the prime minister, worked with Luntz in the early 1990s.
      Luntz developed the public diplomacy document for the Israel Project, a pro-Israel organization that in the past was bipartisan, but has in recent years shifted to the right. Page 62 of the document states in part that ethnic cleansing is the best argument in response to the settlement issue when it comes to the U.S. public. In his video, Netanyahu repeated Luntz’s text almost word-for-word.

      Again, why is the State department so mad at those we keep enabling? Time to stop the charity and love from flowing to these criminals.

  • Netanyahu's 'ethnic cleansing' video earns strong rebuke from State Department
    • "MS TRUDEAU: Yes. We are engaging in direct conversations with the Israeli Government on this."

      Fat lot that is going to do to change anything

      And

      "We’ll have our conversation with our Israeli allies and friends and we’ll see where that goes"….

      It will go nowhere sister. Israel will keep the status quo and their control over the Palestinians and the US as long as their evil heart's desire.

    • They have this ugly habit of projecting. All casualty numbers show it is the zionazis who keep ethnically cleansing those they steal lands from, and yet this man is trying to convince the world it is the opposite. He is mentally deranged, there is no other word for this dangerous lunatic.
      Only brainwashed idiots will continue to believe that the Palestinians want to keep living in suffering and without freedom, and that the occupier with a well trained military and sophisticated weapons is the poor victim.

      As for the US State Department, they should stop with this false outrage and condemnation - the world knows and agrees that it is the US that enables these war criminals, arms them, and hands them ammunition to kill more civilians - give us a break, and stop pretending you are outraged with what they keep doing. Actions speak louder than words, and the US has shown nothing but support for all what Israel does.

      So why do we keep enabling this alien nation again?

  • NYC city council anti-BDS bill meets resistance from protesters
    • This is the reality, the facts, the crimes, which is well reported and recorded. Not hasbara drivel.

      The arrogant occupier has stolen all they can
      ethnic cleansing, violence, and greed, part of the plan
      to drive away by harassment and military occupation
      to deny rights and never allow them to be a nation
      so they must suffer, be denigrated, made to look so bad
      so the brutal occupation goes on, will not make the world sad

    • They seems to be mindless minions who spew out what has been programmed and brain fed by their evil superiors. They cannot think for themselves, nor do they have an iota of honesty to admit to the crimes perpetrated in their name.

  • Dozens of Spanish cities declare themselves ‘Free of Israeli Apartheid’
    • So the US is outraged over Netanyahu's ethnic cleaning video, yet has increased the charity that goes Israel's way and keeps sending weapons to kill civilians. I am tired of the good cop/bad cop routine.

      "U.S. Slams Netanyahu's 'Ethnic Cleansing' Video, Calling It 'Inappropriate and Unhelpful'
      In the video, Netanyahu hinted that the U.S. and other countries that support the uprooting of Israeli West Bank settlements as part of a deal establishing a Palestinian state were supporting the ethnic cleansing of Jews."

    • Would love to. :))

    • Did I miss it, or has Barcelona still not passed that resolution?

      I doubt we will see a similar map of the US showing where people have had the courage to stand up to the apartheid nation.

  • Bidding for access to Clinton, Goldberg says Bill can cut peace deal and win Nobel
    • As long as the zionists wants the status quo, and wants to keep this ridiculous decades long occupation, and keep building illegal settlements, which even the US keeps pretending it is against, no one, no one can persuade them to get their greedy behinds to a peace table in all sincerity. Goldberg is trying to get skeptics like us to give Hillary a chance, with the hopes that her husband will produce this miracle. She is after all the darling of the zionists, and helps them keep this charade of an occupied and long suffering people WANTING to live under terrible conditions, having to live with contaminated water, blockaded, and no hope.

      As long as the US keeps aiding, arming, and giving these zionists a free pass, to kill, occupy, and steal, there will be no damn 2SS in our lifetime. This is reality.

  • Another house demolition in occupied territories, and the U.S. does not lift a finger
    • How ironic the water bandits who steal, control, and sell back stolen waters, want to have a water conference. Israel is nothing but a rogue nation that controls it's neighbors because of the aid and weapons we provide.

    • Israel is the only idiotic nation in the world that has been able to connect criticism of it (and it's endless crimes against humanity) with anti-semitism, and the media and many Americans keeps letting them. Anyone can criticize Iran and even Saudi Arabia, and no one will accuse you of being anti Muslim/Arab, you can criticize Islam and it is never associated with any Muslim nation, likewise it is the same for Christian nations. To hear someone being called anti-semitic because he did not want to shake hands with a war monger and the crimes of his nation, is when you realize how ridiculous these accusation of anti-semitism are. I wonder if any world leader or any true journalist in the media will address this and make it clear it is totally outrageous to keep doing so.

    • It is too late Amigo. The poison has seeped into various important agencies in this nation, from the media to Congress and even the White House. It has been firmly planted and allowed to breed by threats, donations, well organized attacks demonizing any American that dares to question it's tactics, or confronts it's crimes. With the notorious anti-semitic card being played at inappropriate times, they are able to control this nation.

      The time to send the brainwashed and financially paid for Firsters packing is long past, but
      unfortunately we will continue to shower this rogue nation with billions of dollars and lots of unwavering support. This will never change in our lifetime.

  • 'Their sorry will not bring back Mustafa': Israeli govt tells grieving Palestinian family son was 'killed by mistake'
    • For this brilliant and most moral military outfit, they seem to be terribly incompetent and very devious. It is strange how many "mistakes" they have made. Apart from the USS Liberty and poor Rachel Corrie, there were the four little children playing soccer and brutally bombed by a short sighted IDF, then there were the many homes in Gaza where entire families were wiped out, let us not forget the UN shelters that were viciously bombed by the IDF although they were told numerous times they were UN shelters, then there were the "mistakes" made by masked commandos when they attack civilians in a flotilla from Turkey, killing an American kid as well, and so many others.

      I think we keep hearing that song "oops I did it again" by Israel far too many times, but it seem the US is tone deaf to it.

  • New call for US investigation into killing of Palestinian-American teen in West Bank
    • Obviously if this was a Jewish American killed by Hamas or some other group in some Palestinian territory, there would have been the usual outrage, and the politicizing of such a killing by the ADL, Rabbi Schmuckly, and all the other Israel firsters of America, including the puppets in Congress, demanding an investigation and even threatening to cut the aid that goes to the Palestinians.

      But since the killers were zionists in uniform, all we can hear are crickets, the same reaction when poor Rachel Corrie was killed trying to stop a bulldozer from breaking international laws. How sad.

  • 'NY Times' rigs a purported news article to push U.S. escalation in Syria
    • Of course. The zionist have a filthy greedy streak for lands, and will say/do anything to get some from the neighbors they have always despised and blamed for all their ills. Just read the comments in that article and you will see how misguided people are, and blaming Islam and demonizing Muslims, while totally ignoring the crimes of the zionists, as if the Devil's chosen have a right to ill gotten lands.

  • There's no room on campus to be progressive and pro-Israel
    • Israel bombs, steals, and kills with impunity. It is ironic that it keeps playing victims, while getting away with such brutal treatment of UNARMED CIVILIANS, and that these horrible crimes are played down, and hardly mentioned in this nation. No reasonable person can keep believing the damn lies, subterfuges and justifications that sound lame, and not realize that this is all part of the zionist plan to keep the status quo and occupation going as long as they want, and that they have absolutely no desire to have a 2SS or give the Palestinians their freedom.

      They have shown time and time again, that they are a vicious nation and killing unarmed civilians is easy, especially when we keep giving them the ammunition to do so.

      No wonder they are considered one of the most disliked nations in the world.

    • They must be the dropouts who make up for substance with persistence. They keeps turning up like gnats and only make a nuisance of themselves. I doubt a single mind has been convinced, or changed, because of the crap they spew.

  • Many leftwing Israelis are leaving the country -- 'Forward' breaks an important story
    • Kay24, isn’t the USA made up of stolen lands as well?

      Really, these apologists have come up with the most ridiculous justifications to keep that damn occupation going. Let me try to explain this simply - we cannot go back in time and change the errors of our ways, and I think the native Americans were treated so badly, to say the least, we are now PRESENTLY watching a brutal occupation and the shameless theft of lands, and it can be stopped by the occupier and the world powers NOW. Pointing to US history centuries ago, can never justify what is going on right now, and it is ugly.

    • This is going to hurt Netanyahu, since he has made it his life's mission to find every Jewish person in various corners of the world, like in Africa and even India, and entice them to come to stolen lands. He even tried to bribe the Iranian Jews, and took the opportunity to invite the French Jews over during a sad time in France. He needs to fill up those illegal abodes, and these left wing Jews who have decided to leave, will not help the colonization of Palestinian lands.

  • Liberal Zionists see 'window of opportunity' for two states in last three months of Obama administration
    • If the US genuinely wanted to stop this occupation and land theft, it could have easily done so YEARS ago. There is no point making excuses and pretending it wants to be an honest broker in this matter. We are a nation that aid, arms, and protects Israel from world censure and threats of sanctions, and shows unwavering support the moment it starts dropping bombs in Palestinian territories killing hundreds of CIVILIANS. All we have to do is threaten to stop the charity that they beg for, and that will surely hurt them. Obama is NOT going to make waves and damage his legacy in any way, especially during the last days of of his Presidency. He will, like those before him, and most probably after, toe that imaginary line and allow the zionists to continue this outrage, and get away with murder. Our policies supporting democracy and freedom apparently does not apply to those the zionists occupy and kill.

      Yes CKG, it is the impossible dream.

  • Marc Lynch warns against the U.S. escalation in Syria
  • Daniel Berrigan's 1973 prophecy: Israel is becoming 'the tomb of the Jewish soul'
    • It seems the outrage and condemnation from the US and the EU are part of this huge charade.
      If they genuinely are outraged about the illegal settlements, then they would not be aiding and arming the war criminals, and would have halted any support until it stops breaking international laws. This is sheer hypocrisy, on the one hand every time the evil empire keeps announcing more illegal settlements, the US/EU seems shocked and condemn such actions, on the other hand they reward the rascals by pouring in more aid and deadly weapons, which surely they know are used against unarmed civilians. The world knows it too, but does nothing.
