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.

  • Influential rabbi teaches would-be Israeli soldiers: Genocide is a mitzvah
    • Israel has had some vicious Rabbis, calling for the extermination of goyim, and egging Israelis to kill Palestinians. I remember the controversial Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, who had spoken in the same evil manner. These men would qualify to be in the nazi movement. It should make us wonder exactly who they address, and who their followers are. No decent human being will agree with these shameless men who pretend they are doing God's work, while they sound like they do the devil's.

  • Thousands demonstrate at Gaza border in 'Burn Israeli Flags' Friday
    • In the insane world of zionists, an occupier, fully armed with America's latest weaponry, who has a brutal military, and who wields the power, has the "right" to defend itself from powerless, unarmed, and occupied people. WHAT ABOUT THE RIGHTS OF IT'S VICTIMS? Aren't they entitled to defend themselves from the brutality of their occupier, the occupation, and the land grabs. This is sheer madness, and the world knows it, but keeps supporting the war criminals, by doing NOTHING about it. So many civilians have been murdered brutally by the zionists, and their Arab brothers do not utter a word of protest.
      It seems the Palestinians are on their own.

  • Netanyahu says Israeli snipers are doing ‘holy work’
    • Talking bull crap like that, who does Netanyahu think he is fooling? There is nothing "holy" about killing unarmed young people, and this is sheer evil. This massacre looks like unholy work, done by the Devil;s own. It certainly distracted his naive people, and the world, away from the corruption charges he and bottle Sarah are facing. Mission accomplished.

  • Transcript of Ahed Tamimi interrogation by Israeli military
  • Israeli snipers shoot 6 Palestinian journalists, killing one--making international headlines
    • Israel has become an evil entity. It is out of control, and kills with impunity.

      The results of the US, UK, and the EU pandering to it, sending billions of dollars in aid, and the deadliest of weapons, that enable it to keep killing unarmed civilians. Despite this massacre, the wicked witch of the US, Nikki Hayley, will protect it's protege, once again, at the UN. The rest of the world will be silenced.

  • Young Jews protest Reform leadership's silence over Passover massacre
    • Good question. Everything else has been tried. They would be naive to even think that Israel will feel remorse and change it's evil ways. Nothing has worked so far, in fact it has got worse, when you consider these massacres on a daily basis, and the illegal settlements. I am glad to see young Jews speaking out, but they should be realistic. Israel will never self correct.

  • Israel just lost American Jews
    • Finally the "zionist" media has to own up that Israel is NOT defending itself. It CANNOT blame Palestinian militants for the IDF shooting young kids at the back as they run, walk, or pray, and that BLAMING the victims, is not working anymore, when there are numerous videos disputing their lies. The silence from the right wing apologists is deafening . Bret Stephens, Bill Kristol, and even Dershowitz, seems mute. Had these been the deaths of Israelis, they would be howling with outrage, and zionists like Michael Oren and Danny Dannon, would have got prime spots to show their anger, and trying to make out that Israel is the victim. As for the US, we have got to wonder where that brilliant peace maker Jared Kushner is in all this, and even Donald J. Trump should be questioned if he thinks that handing Jerusalem to these killers, was the right thing to do.
      I hope American leaders who put Israel above their own country are proud of it today.
      Perhaps they don't care that Arabs have been killed and injured unmercifully. That is how it has been anyway.

  • Israeli 'terror' propaganda is itself incitement to state-terror
    • To your point, among the thousands of protesters, it must take a magician to pinpoint these so called "militants" and kill them, in that fast moving situation. Why were so many killed and injured while they were no threat to the murderous IDF? Palestinians walking, running, and praying must be threatening to the zionists.

      The zionists have a very ugly habit of killing and justifying it as the killing of Hamas or militants.
      Whether it is sending precision bombs into homes, UN refugee centers, flotillas, or check points, it seems the armed and trained IDF see militants everywhere. They kill and lie about it.

  • Video appears to show Israeli shot ending Palestinian footballer's career as he stands with selfie stick
    • Sadists of the zionist kind. They deprive the Palestinians of basic needs like electricity, water, and try hard to make them suffer, on a daily basis. When they bomb Gaza, they aim for the electricity plants, and keep them in darkness in all ways. You have to wonder what kind of religion condones this inhumane behavior.

  • Geraldo Rivera regrets not backing Palestinians in Second Intifada
    • So was Geraldo pandering more to the zionist media masters, or was he too dense to realize that the Palestinians have been suffering, losing their lands, having their homes demolished, children kidnapped, youth killed, and blockaded, and that the brutal zionists were simply pretending that they were the victims? There are so many others of his ilk in the media.

  • Killing Palestinian protesters turns into a PR debacle for Israel
    • Your comment reads like Israeli propaganda. It seems Israel's Hasbara is not working anymore.
      The videos have made it hard for apologists to defend the indefensible.

    • All those millions of dollars Saudi Arabia is paying to change their negative image, is for nothing.
      SA has hitched it's wagon to a terror state, and just like the world dislikes Israel, SA will also be detested. The brutality and violence that the world has witness by video, will forever stick to Israel's long list of crimes and human rights abuses, but we have gone down this road before, and the criminals with the protection of the US, will get away this time too.

    • This should make any people from any nation ashamed. The world is witnessing, a massacre of innocent civilians, doing what people in democracies are able to do, protesting. It also shows young kids being killed by snipers and shot AT THE BACK, while walking/running/praying, away from the killer's vantage point.

      Just like the last massacre in Gaza in 2014, this time too, videos, have shown just how brutal Israel can be, and the usual lies are not sticking this time too. They cannot get away with the lies anymore. No, they cannot ALL be Hamas, no, they were not a threat to the well armed IDF, no, they were walking AWAY from the killers, and according to that deleted tweet, the IDF came fully prepared to kill, and they HAVE to account for every bullet that killed kids from the back. they bragged about it. How long do they think they can blame Hamas, cast all Palestinians as militants, and justify it all by claiming they are defending themselves. WHAT ABOUT PALESTINIANS RIGHTS AND THE RIGHT TO DEFEND THEMSELVES FROM THESE BRUTAL KILLERS, THEIR OCCUPATION, AND THEIR LANDS BEING STOLEN? WHY DO FULLY ARMED TRAINED MILITARY ONLY HAVE THOSE RIGHTS?

      It is embarrassing to see the US time after time, come out and cast blame on the powerless Palestinians, and then veto any resolution that condemns the slaughter of unarmed civilians, or human rights violations by Israel. The US has lost it's moral authority, when it come to Israel. That logistical support given by Mossad, must be worth it. Shame on ALL those Americans who keep supporting the violence, the occupation, the land grabs, and covering up for Israel's large behind.

      Where are the voices of the Arab nations? How about Saudi Arabia, Israel good buddy? Have they lost their voices when it comes to the zionists? It is time the new Prince Salman, condemned his new buddy, for killing civilians. The more Israel kills, makes lame excuses, lies, and keeps justifying deaths, the more THEY look like butchers.
      Hasbara is not working, and refusing ANY investigation, make them look even more guilty.

  • A brief, unhappy history of Israeli massacres
    • Looking at this interesting list, it strikes me that had this been any other Middle Eastern nation, that was not chummy with the US, they would have been shocked and awed a long time ago. The US is complicit in all these crimes, by giving these butchers aid, the weapons to kill, and the unwavering support at the UN. Americans should be ashamed of this.

  • 'We will not wait 70 years more': scenes from Gaza's March of Return
  • Videos of Palestinians shot walking, running and praying appear on social media, but US cables keep mum
    • Where is Ayman Mohyelden? He covered the last massacre by Israel in Gaza so well. Why is MSNBC so quiet? This time Israel cannot lie and blame unarmed civilians, like they always do, because of these videos, but despite the investigations by the UN, they will, once again be defended at the UN by the witch Nikki Hayley.

      That "logical support" given to the US by Mossad, must be so great the US is willing to overlook anything this terror state does.

      As for the zionist media of the US, we should never be outraged that they ignore, or that their coverage puts Israel in a good light. What does Andrea Mitchell mean by "clash"? Someone should send her the definition of "clash" and explain to her that civilians protesting their occupation and land grabs, are being massacred by deadly weapons, and that people are killed while walking, running, and being no threat. This is a disgusting massacre, that Israel always seem to be guilty of. Netanyahu has blood on his hands, but his people seem to like to see it dripping like that.
      As usual the Hounds of Hasbara are blaming the victims, calling them all Hamas, to justify the massacre.
      The bloody occupation goes on.
      As usual the world does nothing.

  • Israel deployed more than 100 snipers along Gaza border in preparation for nonviolence protest
    • Do we hear condemnation from around the world? How about the US? The nation that makes human rights a priority when it comes to rogue nations, or nations they want to attack? How about the UK? Maybe the EU?
      The only "democracy" in the Middle East is killing unarmed civilians for protesting, and it seems that although they brag that Israelis can protest in their country, they do not allow the Palestinians to protest their occupation, losing their lands, and the fact that they, unlike that "beacon of shining light", are not free. The Palestinians have endured this suffering for decades, and are entitled to resist in any way they can.

  • The problem with Passover
  • Israeli killer gets community service-- and Ahed Tamimi gets 8 months for slapping
    • And they deny they are an apartheid country. One rule for the chosen ones, and one rule for the occupied ones.

  • War-loving, Muslim-hating John Bolton wants to give 'pieces' of Palestine to Jordan and Egypt
    • Not going to happen Inbound39, Americans, unlike the Palestinians, are willing victims, and in fact can be easily "controlled".

    • I guess since that Bolt of Hate does not need the approval of Congress, he will be automatically part of the Trump hate squad. Now there are no voices of reason in the White House. The only voices Trump hears anyway, are those in his head. What a disastrous presidency. There are racists pigs operating openly from the White House.

    • The poison has been strengthened in the WH with this appointment, and this hateful, arrogant man, will be able to convince the racist moron in the Oval office, to kill more Muslims, at the slightest excuse.
      He will be supported and encouraged by the crooked PM of Israel. Iran will be the next victim
      of Western aggression, despite the nuclear agreement working, and other signatories satisfied, that Iran is sticking to their side of the agreement.

      The world is in chaos today, because American led wars, started with fake intelligence, leaders have been toppled (Bolton's desired method) and our "brilliant" talent of taking a bad situation and making it WORSE. All that at the expense of the Muslim people, who have been provoked by these wars, which have left millions dead, millions injured, and millions of refugees. Do we wonder why we are hated still? Do we wonder why terrorists that never existed before, now use these wars as an excuse to kill and terrorize? We opened Pandora's box, and we still like to act like we are not the culprits. If the US cannot work with leaders who do not toe our line, WE decide they have to go, and kill thousands of civilians to take "democracy" over there. Looking at Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya, it seem the "democracy" we have killed and bombed for, to generously present to them, is a damn disaster, and a huge failure.

  • Israeli courts denies Ahed Tamimi’s request for public trial
    • Still, they try hard to convince the world otherwise. They are masters at playing victim, and while they wipe the Palestinian territories off the map, accuse everyone else of doing just that to them.
      Ironic.

    • I am sure everyone can see how this poor girl has been treated, the harsh sentence, she may get, and all that for slapping a poor defenseless "soldier".

      How about this then, Elon Azaria IDF soldier is to be released EARLY for killing a defenseless suspect, against international law.

      "The military parole board on Monday ordered the so-called 'Hebron shooter' Elor Azaria's to be released after serving two-thirds of his sentence, the standard for prisoners with good behavior. He is slated to be released on May 10, 2018".

      From the only real democracy in the Middle East.

  • Schumer says he opposed the Iran deal because of 'threat to Israel'
    • It is shameful that he puts Israel above all things. The rest of the world agreed and supported this deal, because it was for the good of the entire world. It is time Israel's servants in Congress tried to make their motherland, stop the occupation, and the land grabs, and where Iran is concerned, time for the zionists to stop waving cartoon bombs, and metal toys, to threaten Iran, it is enough to make any country nervous and want to have nuclear weapons.

  • Video: Jewish settler looses attack dog on Palestinian shepherd and flock, maiming sheep
    • I think the term "vicious" also applies to them. Their actions against Palestinians are always vicious as we have seen, time and time again.

    • That happens in a real democracy. The fake one here in the Middle East has a different set of rules when one of their own acts like a vicious animal. The soldier who assassinated a wounded Palestinian, while he was on the ground, incapacitated, and no threat to anyone, has just got his sham of a sentence shortened, and he is now free. What next? Perhaps an all expenses paid trip to Disney for that zionist "hero"? Or maybe a Sheldon Adelson donation of a luxury villa in an illegal settlement for the darling of the IDF.

  • Netanyahu’s AIPAC speech – interrupted
    • Well interrupted. What a rosy picture the man under investigation painted. Strange, no mention of the word "occupation" or for that matter "illegal settlements". I guess two taboo words at any AIPAC festivities. All the dirt being swept under the rug. It also shows that the pro occupation audience who applauded, and showed their unwavering love of everything zionist there, were so entranced, they forget all about the suffering of those under occupation, but of course, they deserve it, they are all "terrorists" trying to wipe Israel off the map.

      Jonathan Ofir said it best:

      "Wow, we are changing the world. So why aren’t we changing Gaza, Netanyahu? Oh, I forgot, we have nothing to do with Gaza. We “disengaged” from Gaza in 2005, we’re not there. Except that we control everything that enters and exits, control down to birth certificates, we control land, air and sea, and subject them to seasonal massacres when it befits us. But other than that Gaza is a whole other universe. Let’s not talk about Gaza. Let’s change the world – but let Gaza wither."

  • 'Someone is paying Trump to do it' -- Pompeo elevation shows neoconservative lock on foreign policy
    • Meanwhile Israel will rid the Galilee of Arabs...

      "Standard of Living in the West Bank Is Dropping for the First Time in Years, World Bank Warns in New Report
      The unemployment rate in adults under 30 in the West Bank stands at 40 percent, report says; Gaza, in the meantime, continues to hurtle towards collapse, and aid cuts to UNRWA will only exacerbate the crisis."

      Thanks to the US.

  • American Jews need Israel to be safe -- megadonor Paul Singer
    • Wow, this is a new one. What is Israel going to do for all the Jews, send Mossad to protect them around the world? This shameful man is simply justifying his support for Israel, and making sure his motherland gets credit for no real reason. I wonder if he realizes that he sounds ridiculous.

  • Israel 'made a desert bloom' -- and I helped -- Kamala Harris to AIPAC
  • New billboard campaign raises awareness about child prisoners held by Israel
    • Is it still up there? How about seeing more around the country? Educating Americans is one step towards getting the truth out to people who mostly live in ignorance.

  • With gags, props, and slides, Israel's Netanyahu warns of Iran at AIPAC
    • It makes me wonder if the audience were still awed by him, or whether deep inside they did not want to believe a corrupt man. His war mongering gets bizarre by the year.
      Netanyahu seems to be as crazy, and corrupt, as Trump, minus the twitter rants of course, but still insane.

  • Schumer and Dems outdo Trump at AIPAC-- there's no peace because 'Palestinians don't believe in Torah'
    • It's that time of the year again. When Americans can watch with embarrassment, their representatives try to outdo each other, and try to do the most brown nosing as possible, making statements to endear themselves to a despicable organization. How readily they try to please the zionists, a cringeworthy display of kissing up, and showing unwavering love, even more than their own country.

      Schumer is totally wrong. The Palestinians believe in the Torah, because it is part of Islam.

      On the other hand the believers of the Torah, the Israelis, have no regard, nor respect for the Quran, or the Bible.

  • AIPAC panics over progressives abandoning Israel
    • Even if they can't, the zionists will make sure they live beyond their means. :))

    • Now with Crooked Nutty looking bad, people are going to open their eyes and realize they have been taken for an expensive ride by the zionists. It is the Palestinian people who will continue to suffer.

  • Jared Kushner's swift rise and long, long fall
  • 'Israel-related censorship' on Upper West Side is deplored by 40 Jews, including Beinart, Hirschmann, Peratis, Zellner
    • Talking about silence, how about this from the "only real democracy" in the Middle East?

      Israel takes steps to Criminalize Criticisms of Israeli Military

      “The only way to stop us is to end the occupation,” said the group being targeted, Breaking the Silence.
      The Israeli Knesset approved the first reading of a bill that would prohibit organizations from being critical of the Israeli Army Monday.
      The bill, which passed by 35-23 votes, was proposed by Education Minister Naftali Bennett. Bennett is the chairman of the right-wing Jewish Home party, a party seeking to criminalize any criticisms of the Israeli occupation."

      So unlike those Arab nations eh?

      BDS.

  • Photo Essay: Palestinian Christians and Muslims protest new Israeli tax aimed at Christian properties
    • If the Christian zionists in the US had any intelligence, they can see that the zionists are vicious, and making Christian Palestinians suffer too. "God's chosen" behaving like vindictive devils again.

  • Group tied to ex-Israeli ambassador held a 'Truth About Israel' gala at Mar-a-Lago as a 'thank you' to Trump
    • What version of the "truth" could that have been? The rest of the world knows that Israel is a vicious occupier, that steals lands, demolishes homes, and kills civilians, and those are undisputed facts, so what exactly could these zionist servants have presented to those who attended, and pretended they were impressed? Trump loves to be praised and feted, and these zionists sure know how to "butter up" the narcissistic president.

  • Colorado congressman's wife encourages messianic Jews to seize Muslim holy site in Jerusalem-- 'Say, It's ours!'
    • This is so disappointing. I thought Justin Trudeau was better than that. He is no different than the despicable Congress people, who show unwavering love and support to the zionists, and ready to hand over more ammunition to the war criminals in Israel, whenever they decide to show their military might to unarmed civilians. That same, shameless devotion that shekels can buy.

    • The arrogance of the zionazis - "it is ours, build the illegal settlements, steal their water, steal their olive trees, or destroy the trees, demolish their homes, kill them including the children, and seize their Mosques"....Israelis wiping Palestinians off the face of this earth (and they accuse the Palestinians of that very same thing).

      This woman is a disgrace, she sounds like one of those illegal settlers, and it would be interesting to know if this is yet another junket paid for by Israel. Viciousness is part of their DNA, as we have seen many times.

  • Trump's ambassador says the unspeakable: Uprooting settlers could 'cause civil war'
    • OG, I agree to all what you say, and indeed the zionists have so much of blood on their hands, they are even wading in it. It was arrogance, and the usual sense of entitlement, typical of zionists, that made them think that going outside the 1967 borders, against international laws, is okay, and the fact that the US sent them billions of dollars to do just that, pretending to criticize them, yet shielding them from UN condemnation, enabled them to steal, demolish, and build acres of squatter homes. Their attitude was "so we build on disputed land,, so what can you do now? We don't care a damn about what anyone thinks".

      The zionists are doing what it always accuses the Arabs of doing - wiping the Palestinians off the map, by stealing, demolishing, building, killing, maiming, and already the results are showing.

    • Lillian, by "fun" I mean watching the IDF having to take a stern stance with these thugs, who usually get away with all crimes against helpless Palestinians. So far they treat them with kid gloves, and look the other way, when they abuse the Palestinians.
      The zionists have been having far too much of "fun" at the expense of their victims.

    • So couldn't the "intelligent' zionists realize that there will be "civil war" when they built their illegal settlements?

      If there is a "civil war" it is not the problem of the Palestinians, or the world. Israel with it's brutal IDF should be able to quell that. It will be fun watching them deal with armed illegal settlers.

  • Abbas warns Security Council, Palestinians could become 'refugees or terrorists in Europe'
  • Sex, lies and corruption: Israeli politics from Ben-Gurion to Netanyahu
    • Right now we are seeing the US hammering the final nail in their coffin. After handing Jerusalem on a golden platter to the zionists, they (Niki Hayley today) seem to be mad that the Palestinians are not grateful and accepting the empty bowl, that is being offered by the US and the zionists.
      The vicious Niki Hayley added insult to injury at the UN saying they don't have to accept it, or like it, and that their decision about Jerusalem "will not change", and that defect and slime ball Jared Kushner sat behind her, knowing he had pleased his zionists friends.

      The Palestinians have indeed been screwed over, again and again, and they have lost everything.
      There is enough of blame to go around, even the Arab nations who continue to ignore the plight of the Palestinians, while they wheel and deal with the US and the zionists. Who would have thought that the keepers of the two Holiest Mosques, will have sinister connections to the zionists? Next, we shall see Netanyahu join the Saudis in their sword dance.

      Meanwhile the man responsible for the theft of Palestinian lands, and the killings of their children, and his greedy wife, are under investigation. Thieving must be in their blood.

  • Zionism's tailspin: Stark minority of young California Jews are 'comfortable with idea of Jewish state'
    • It seems Yahoo does not realize he looking like a buffoon, with his cartoon bombs, and silly maps, and that he looks like a gorilla pounding his chest at Iran, always, from the podium, growling and
      threatening.

      Only the zionist puppets in Congress, the US media, and the US President, treat him like he is
      some hero, in fact he gets more standing ovations than the US President, whenever he invites himself to Congress. The rest of the world seem to know he is a liar and a war monger.

    • Its seems that war monger, Netanyahu, is up to his tricks again, this time he uses a map, instead of a cartoon bomb:

      "Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that Israel would act against Iran, not just its allies in the Middle East, if needed, reiterating that Tehran was the world's greatest threat.

      Holding a piece of what he said was an Iranian drone after its incursion into Israeli airspace earlier this month, Netanyahu told the Munich Security Conference: "Israel will not allow the regime to put a noose of terror around our neck.

      "We will act if necessary not just against Iran's proxies but against Iran itself," he said.

      Addressing the Munich event for the first time, Netanyahu urged gathered U.S. and European officials and diplomats to counter Iran immediately, displaying a map showing what he said was Iran's growing presence in the Middle East." New York Times

      Let's see...Israel terrorizes the Palestinians, so that means the pot calls the kettle black, he has forgotten about Mossad killing Iranian scientists in Iran, and as for the map, perhaps Iran should come up with one too, showing exactly where the US and Israel's growing presence can be found, many in the same place Iranian presence may be. Ironic.

      When crooks are under investigation they are desperate, and they try to distract, and take attention away from the hot water they are in.

  • Jewish activists launch project to tackle anti-Muslim racism
    • Trump is a miserable failure. The US senate has just shot his immigration policy and wall down, and he could not get any kind of healthcare bill passed in Congress. He talks big, but can never achieve anything. All these law suits cost the tax payer too much money, and wasted time.

      Trump wants to ban Muslims from nations whose citizens have never attacked Americans, but despite the HIGH number of casualties as a result of gun violence in the US, never mentions banning deadly weapons, or changing laws to prevent American citizens from having access to AK-15's and other weapons that belong to the military.

  • Israel’s Justice Minister endorses apartheid -- the Jewish state 'at the expense of equality'
    • “There is place to maintain a Jewish majority even at the price of violation of rights.”

      The same justification perhaps by the Nazis.

      Meanwhile "Snaked's" boss PM Netanyahu seems to be in hot water.
      The Israeli police has stated there is sufficient evidence to indict the crooked Netanyahu family.

      What now? An attack on Gaza to take the attention away from the trouble he is in?

  • High-profile actors, artists, athletes, and activists join Dream Defenders in supporting Ahed Tamimi
    • Good question. Where ARE the others? It looks like they are still reluctant to do the right thing, by signing their names, and standing up for a young girl, who has been unjustly treated like an adult, and made to face a military court, for a crime had it been committed by a privileged Israeli kid, it would have already been dismissed and forgotten. I guess the thought of NOT getting lucrative contracts (with zionist influence) in their fields, must be making them forget about human rights. Pathetic lot.

      Israelis are vicious people, and the ugly treatment of Palestinian children, are reprehensible. So much for the only "democracy" in the ME.

  • NYT op-ed describing Israel as a place of refuge is missing the word, Palestinians
    • You have to realize the Palestinians are being thrown under the bus, and that their oppressors are going to be successful in stealing all they can from them, and getting rid of them, when you see headlines like this. Saudi Arabia is already the zionist's best buddy.

      "US JEWISH LEADERS TO VISIT UNITED ARAB EMIRATES"

      "Head of US Jewish group secretly visited Qatar
      Zionist Organization of America's Morton Klein the latest pro-Israel figure to travel to Gulf state"

      Evil wins every time.

  • Wilkerson says 'Israel's security' was motive for Iraq war-- though not in NYT op-ed
    • The sellers of American wars show remorse only after millions of Muslims are killed, injured, or become refugees. Where was their conscience before, and how could they watch the bloodbath without feeling any guilt? Americans have to know that fighting a despicable occupier's war, losing trillions of dollars, and American lives, is simply not worth it. Israel always manipulates, interferes, and prods us to do their dirty work. No wonder we are hated around the world, just like they are.

  • 14-year-old girl forced alone into Gaza is another example of the Israeli occupation's cruelty
    • I guess the zionists have learnt from those who dehumanized them year ago. Reasonable people usually avoid becoming like their abusers, and become tolerant, compassionate, and will never do the same to others, but we are not talking about "reasonable" people, are we?

  • Israeli paper's publication of BDS ad marks beginning of society's return to sanity

      "EU pledges €42.5m extra aid to Palestinians after Donald Trump cuts US contribution
      EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini warns US jeopardising peace process by going it alone

      The European Union has pledged an additional €42.5m (£37m) aid package for the Palestinian occupied territories following Donald Trump’s decision to cut US support to the would-be state.

      The new money comes weeks after the US President decided to withhold $65m (£45.8) of a $125m aid package to the UN agency in Palestine, arguing that America gets “no appreciation or respect” for its payments.

      Federica Mogherini, the EU’s foreign affairs chief, announced the package on Wednesday in Brussels, warning Mr Trump that the US would jeopardise the Israeli-Palestinian peace process by going it alone in the region."

  • 'NYT' praises Israelis for restraint in attacks aimed at Arafat that killed 100s of innocents
    • To justify the occupation, land grabs, and the mowing of the lawn, Israel has managed to make the gullible in the US think that all Palestinians are "terrorists". Israel seems to be the only side that "has the right to defend itself", not the occupied people, who are killed by the thousands.
      The Palestinians also don't have the right to resist.

      The New York Times has failed to be an honest reporter of this conflict, just like many others in the zionist media (well earned title).

  • Palestinian ambassador reveals details about Trump's meetings with Abbas, accuses the U.S. of 'backstabbing'
    • If R. Cohen was honest, he would have called for Netanyahu to go, after all he is under investigation for corruption, together with his wife, and no good son, and has failed to achieve any resolution into this 60 year conflict.

    • President after President, one Congress after another, have failed to release the Palestinian people from the occupation, and failed to stop the criminals of Israel, from building illegal settlements, and the endless acts of inhumanity against helpless civilians. They have sent billions of dollars in aid, weapons, and protected this rogue nation, at the UN. Trump only made bad things worse, by giving these scoundrels Jerusalem, all tied up with a bow colored with stars and stripes.

      OT but interesting:

      This book only confirms what we already know, that Israel is a pariah and terror state, always at the bottom of massacres, chaos, and now assassinations:

      "Poisoned toothpaste and exploding phones: New book chronicles Israel’s ‘2,700’ assassination operations
      Intelligence correspondent Ronen Bergman persuades Mossad agents, Shin Bet and military personnel to disclose their stories on state-sponsored killings"

      http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/mossad-assassinations-israel-foreign-operations-arafat-book-shin-bet-ronan-bergman-interviews-a8181391.html

      Are we paying them those billions of dollars to get our dirty work done too?

      Will the zionist media is the US interview the author, and discuss it?

  • 'We’re going to have nothing to do with (peace process) any longer' -- Trump threatens Palestinians
    • The sight of the two looking like evil twins, and spewing their nonsense and lies, was disgusting.
      Trump and the US gives these zionists all they want and more, and now Jerusalem, and expects the Palestinians to gratefully accept any crumbs that fall their way, despite all the pain, suffering, and great loss they have had to endure under their occupier. How many Palestinians are refugees now, how many have been killed, injured, have lost their homes, lands, farms, and how many Palestinian kids have been thrown in jail, and abused?

      I am ashamed that the US has aided and abetted these despicable zionists, by pretending to condemn the illegal settlements, and then rewards it with Jerusalem. Our good Christian Pence, was not welcomed in any Church in the territories, Nazareth, Bethlehem, and even Jerusalem during his visit..
      Obviously they KNOW that the zionists should not have been given Jerusalem on a golden platter.
      As we can see, Adelson's campaign donations have bought the vicious zionists, a piece of property, and once again the US has shown the world what a dishonest broker it can be.

  • Norman Finkelstein's new book on Gaza is a meticulous account of Israel's crimes
    • I congratulate Norm Finklestein for this new book. I listened to him speak at Princeton University during the time of the last massacre of Palestinians in Gaza in 2014, and was very impressed with what he said, and how he said it. If only there were many more Norms, that will amplify the criticism of this brutal regime in Israel. The world now sees the US as a partner in Israel's crimes.

  • Netanyahu has taken a wrecking ball to Israel's favorability ratings among Democrats
    • When it comes to Israel, the majority of Americans are stupid. How else could Israel become a parasite, and a huge burden, without some American dupes, and some corrupt politicians, who can be bought (campaign donations and freebee trips) and made to put that parasitic nation before theirs? Israel controls America and we know it. America is something that can be easily moved the zionist way. America is being used as a doormat by the zionist nation, willingly.

    • If the zionist media had the honesty to cover this conflict as they should, using words like "occupation" and "illegal settlements" more often, have investigative reporting on occupied territories, especially the areas bombed into smithereens during he last attack on Gaza, and showed Americans how the Palestinians live under occupation, the suffering, the check points, the olive trees destroyed by illegal settlers, and basically show the American people, what the occupier does with their tax money, the numbers will change drastically. Israel will be disliked.

      The media keeps doing the occupier's bidding, and hides the truth from the American people.

  • Palestinian-American businessman, 57, is arrested by ICE in Cleveland, shocking supporters
    • Zionist fingerprints all over the world, where there is chaos, and attacks on Muslims. They provoke, manipulate, bribe, train, and sell weapons to war criminals.

  • 'He wants to kill us'— Gazans fear for the worst as Trump severs aid to Palestinian refugees
    • What kind human beings will add insult to injury, by depriving powerless people, who have lived under a brutal occupation, the aid they have to depend on, and keep giving billions of dollars in aid, and much more in weapons, to those that keep killing their kids, and stealing lands from them? What kind of human beings will not ask that occupier to halt the illegal settlements, as a pre-condition to any peace talks, instead give it Jerusalem, and demand it's victims to come for peace negotiations, with nothing to offer?
      That would be the Sheldon Adelson paid for evil that unfortunately exists in the WH today.

  • Ahed Tamimi should stay in prison because she might slap again -- Israeli ethicist
    • When it comes to justifying the crimes against the Palestinians, the excuses seem to be getting more and more feeble. How about those thuggish illegal settler women? I have seen them spit and verbally attack Palestinians in videos, do they belong in jail too, or are they seen as entitled, and privileged, in the so called Israeli judicial system? Ahed Tammy is only a kid, and it is unbelievable that world outrage is not loud enough.

  • Israeli Jews will never accept Palestinians as equals -- Klutznick, chair of Americans for Peace Now
  • Ahed Tamimi offers Israelis a lesson worthy of Gandhi
    • The scum does not fall far from the tree:

      "Netanyahu's Son to Gas Tycoon's Son at Strip Club: My Dad Set Your Dad Up for $20b, Give Me $115 for Prostitute
      Yair Netanyahu told Kobi Maimon's son and James Packer's Israeli liaison in recording that he spent $115 on a prostitute ■ Netanyahu family: Cheap and malicious gossip

  • Quaker group honored by Yad Vashem for helping Jews during Holocaust is now banned from Israel
    • LHunter, that is right. They keep quoting the Bible, which they do not follow, nor believe in, and use it to dupe the evangelicals, and other Christians, who think the Jews will lay down the red carpet for the second coming of Jesus Christ. Whether nor not JC will want to touch down on stolen lands, is another matter.

      They seem to not know that many Churches have been burnt, and vandalized, in Israeli, and hardly anyone is ever charged with that crimes. Either they are ignorant, or pretend they do not know the truth.

    • Many days of "Bibi go home" on the streets of Israel.

      Finally some Israelis are realizing they have a corrupt man, who seems to have led them astray.
      Despite the accusations of corruption against Palestinian officials by the Hasbara gnats, it seems they have a bigger problem in the only "democracy" in the ME. While one previous PM is serving a jail sentence, the present evil one, is being investigated, along with his dear
      wife. Oy vey!

    • They cunningly do use God and religion, for their benefit though, especially to rally moderate Jews, to protect and support, their evil causes. As for shame they have none, an ugly quality among their leaders. After years of criticism, condemnation, and being disliked around the world, they still keep the occupation going, the very shameful stealing of lands, for illegal settlements, and they keep killing civilians with impunity.

    • Zionists have a way of highlighting the negative to justify their actions. Instead of acknowledging the fact that these brave people were given a Nobel Peace Prize for their bravery, they will instead quote some irrelevant point, to cast a negative light, even on those who risk their lives to help Jews during the war. It's like the Muslims in Besa who also risked their lives, to hide many Jews during the Holocaust, you never hear appreciation from the zionists about that at all, only this narrative about Palestinians/Arabs/Muslims being evil.
      Talk about being ungrateful.

  • Haaretz smears the Tamimi family to counter worldwide solidarity with 16-year-old Ahed
    • That must be ISIS's way of thanking Netanyahu for the love and care for their wounded.
      It should make the world wonder who is bankrolling and training ISIS, and why Israel has given them nursed them back to good health with so much tenderness.

  • 'We have taken Jerusalem off the table' -- Trump bullies Palestinians
    • Netanyahu/Israel has always treated the Palestinians in the most inhumane way. Trump and most American leaders, in the WH and Congress, have always sided with the occupier, and when it needed ammunition to continue the slaughter of civilians, the US has always handed them more, during their assault in Gaza. The zionists are sly and dishonest, when it comes to stealing lands, and the US pretends to condemn it, but keeps sending billions of dollars in support of their crimes. The Palestinians have endured this shabby treatment for too long, and have never given up, however, signs are they have to look elsewhere for help, the zionists/American treatment of their people, cheating them of their freedom, rights, and lands, will never change.
      It is the most vicious treatment of powerless people by those who brag they are "democracies"

    • Trump is paying the zionist piper, Sheldon Adelson, by doing his bidding, and he has become a zionist puppet, by accepting the $100 million dollars plus, donated by the Sheldons.
      He has not mentioned, nor called for the building of ILLEGAL settlements to be stopped by the occupier, has consistently praised Israel and Netanyahu (the above picture shows two sleaze bags, making one's skin crawl) handed Jerusalem on a golden platter to the occupier, and never threatens Israel with stopping aid, despite their consistent breaking of international laws, and defying the US by not stopping the filthy crime of land theft.

      No one in their right mind will want to cooperate, and get to a peace table, which OFFERS THEM NOTHING. Not their lands, not the right to return, no Jerusalem, and everything tied in a bow for their criminal occupier. He also demands "respect" from them. Israel, Adelson, and the other Americans, whose first love is zionism and Israel, is taking advantage of Trump's lunacy.

  • Ahed Tamimi has polarized western opinion -- but stirred some liberals to solidarity
    • Once again the double standards and hypocrisy, is so obvious. It is a shame that those who cannot see the difference, take the side of the zionists.

      "Nine Attacks by Settlers Have Been Caught on Camera in Two Months. Zero Have Been Indicted
      Nine violent incidents have been caught on video in which settlers have thrown stones and attacked Palestinians, activists and even Israeli soldiers. Why no suspects are in custody?

      The video footage is clear: At least 10 settlers who set out from the direction of the Givat Ronen outpost to the adjacent West Bank village of Burin are seen throwing stones at Palestinians. The footage leaves no room for doubt. Five or more of the settlers’ faces are visible, and there were soldiers in the area who witnessed the stone-throwing. But indictments have yet to be filed in regard to the incidents, and there is no evidence that any suspects have even been detained for questioning.

      This poor girl is being used as a tool, to intimate other Palestinians, and warn them to not dare stand up to those who occupy them.

      So why has this girl being treated like a criminal, while the illegal settlers get away with it?

  • Writing about what should be done to girls in the dark is incitement to sexual assault -- Shany Littman to Ben Caspit
    • They do not need to pray that hard, the can always steal the water from the poor Palestinians, like they do, and leave them with contaminated water. What next? Rain dance?

  • New Israeli train line with station named after Trump was built on stolen Palestinian land
    • Strange you don't get the smell of PRESENT DAY occupation, theft of water, demolishing of homes, and on going land grabs, for illegal settlements. It stinks all over the world, especially when Israel decides to "mow the lawn". Stop the lame justifications, and take a deep breath.

  • Israeli lawmaker calls Palestinians visiting relatives in Israeli prison 'beasts' and 'human scum'
  • Pop star 'Lorde' honors BDS call, cancels Tel Aviv concert
    • This Roseanne Barr?

      "Roseanne went from tapping into the zeitgeist to self-parody in a matter of years. Instead of laughing with us, Roseanne now hates a good portion us. Today, Roseanne inhabits the seamy recesses of the pro-Israel Twittersphere, raging against anyone who doesn’t conform to her Likudist, anti-Muslim line, branding them “Nazis” and sometimes fantasizing about their deaths. Her allies are a collection of anonymous racists and professional pro-Israel propagandists, almost exclusively of the right-wing variety. And while she somehow maintains a gig at NBC, she seems to be heading toward the depressing end of a sad downhill slide."
      And
      "Just over a year later, Roseanne underwent another stunning transformation as inexplicable as her last. She converted to extreme Likudism, adopting the anti-Muslim, anti-Palestinian tendencies that go with it. She now calls Israel’s critics, Nazis. Noted BDS activist and Jewish Israeli Ronnie Barkan was a “Nazi,” according to Roseanne, and so was BDS itself. Supporters of Palestinian rights were “Nazis helpers,” implying that Palestinians themselves are the real Nazis.

      She cannot afford to call anyone a "racist". She seems to have converted to a racist zionist.

  • The never-ending crisis of Zionism
    • This is simply a charade, to show the world that Saudi Arabia is mad at Israel, but reality is, they are having a secret love affair, while trying to get the US to shock and awe Iran. They are putting on an act just to mislead the word. Militarily, SA and Israel are up to no good
      They, together with the US, are the new axis of evil.

      "The creation of once non-existent ties between Saudi Arabia and Israel has been widely reported, but never publicly confirmed by either government, ever since the Iran nuclear deal was signed by the U.S. and other key Western nations. There have been coy hints to be sure, like when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a halfhearted "no comment" to 60 Minutes reporter Leslie Stahl when she asked him last year if Israel had improved its relationship with Saudi Arabia as part of a coalition against Iran. And neither Israel nor Saudi Arabia has yet confirmed widespread reports in the Middle Eastern media that new Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman secretly visited Israel in September.

  • Palestinians celebrate resounding Trump and Israel failure at the UN
    • It is pathetic. Israel and the US had to twist a few small arms, to get Micronesia, Togo, Marshall Islands, Palau, and Honduras, to vote against this resolution. What did they do, threaten to take away their lunch money? This was a resounding defeat for Trump/US and Netanyahu/Israel, and it seems Trump must be fuming that he lost face, and the majority In the world voted against him. Much as Netanyahu brags that other nations are going to move their embassy, the reality is, we will be seeing only the US and Micronesia hastily building their embassies in Jerusalem, to please Israel, and no one else.

  • Two more Tamimi family members are said to be arrested, as Ahed, 16, appears in court
    • They do the most despicable things, and resort to inhumane tactics, and then whine that everyone is out to get them, making themselves out to be the victims. That is a crazy zionist world over there. Once again innocent Palestinians pay the price for such arrogance.

    • Aw, the bird not feeling much love around here...I wonder why!

  • US vetoes UN resolution on Jerusalem, as Muslim states recognize East Jerusalem as Palestine's capital
    • If you take a hard look at the money trail, you will understand WHY the US is doing Netanyahu's bidding:

      "Conservative mega-fundraisers Sheldon Adelson and the Koch brothers gave Gov. Nikki Haley’s political advocacy group a major infusion of cash to help in her bid to remove four Republican state Senate rivals in primaries this spring.
      Adelson, a Las Vegas casino mogul who was the top Republican donor of the 2012 presidential campaign, sent $250,000 to Haley’s A Great Day SC three weeks before the June primaries.

      The Koch brothers gave the group $50,000, according to quarterly Internal Revenue Service filings.

      Haley had come through for Adelson in 2015, when she passed the first law against boycotts of Israel— about the same time as Adelson convened an anti-BDS summit in Las Vegas."

      AND OF COURSE FOR THE MAN DOING HIS BIDDING:

      "American Jewish billionaire Sheldon Adelson is reportedly set to give presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump a campaign donation that could exceed $100 million, making it the largest contribution the casino magnate would have given to a GOP candidate"

      Follow the money trail, and you can see why Trump and Haley have sold their souls to the devil.

  • Israel opens an investigation into army for killing double-amputee in Gaza
    • What's the use? Israel has had many sham investigations, when innocent Palestinians are shot or murdered, and they always exonerate their criminals....it will not be different this time too.

      The Israelis are a bunch of ruthless butchers, and it seems they lack any compassion, or tolerance, when it comes to the Palestinians. Meanwhile their murderers are treating like they are the victims, and showered with love and treated like heroes.
      The US keeps enabling them.

  • 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.
