  • Israel's efforts to hide Palestinians from view no longer fools young American Jews
    • I can't describe without the overuse of coarse, crude language, the disgust I have for Assaf Voll, so I'm going to be brief. Arrogance has already been used to describe him. I would like to add the lack of respect on display really breaks my heart. How far will his cruel intentions get him? Kharma is a MF and the world outside the zionist bubble is not as stupid as the zionists themselves.

  • Thousands in Jerusalem protest abduction of Yemenite babies following disclosure some were experimented on
  • Dangerous, but essential work: my experience as a field reporter in Palestine
    • Are you there Jackdaw? Ask an 'average Palestinian'. I'll tell you what I want though - one state for all people,all ethnicities under a secular democratic government. What do you want?

  • Haim Saban pushes Democrats to support bill that would slash funding to Palestinian Authority
    • The attack on USS Liberty was a war crime. Yet according to too many past u.s. presidents, the u.s. has no better friend than israel. Along with US sailors, Rachel Corrie was murdered by these so called friends. But I guess the attitude is what's a little collateral damage between such good friends?

      With Hillary Clinton hopefully in retirement and out of the way for once, I hope, who will Haim Saban sink his teeth into next - oh shucks, I forgot about Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and most all democrats. Shameful.

      It's official. https://ssl.cdn.turner.com/money/dam/assets/140708115129-america-for-sale-1280x720.png

  • Canada Park, a popular picnicking spot for Israelis, created upon the rubble of Palestinian homes
    • The picture of Imwas before it's destruction is heartbreaking - it must have been wonderful to live there. Forced from their homes, except for the elderly and disabled who couldn't leave quick enough, only to be buried alive in the rubble (how many?) and the deaths resulting in the march to Ramallah yet more and more fodder for the ICC, God willing.

  • The indictment of journalist Aaron Cantú portends grim future for First Amendment
    • Jefferson Beauregarde Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Sessions must be having an extreme case of the vapors with this. What will they do next?

  • The deep bonds of Palestinian-Puerto Rican solidarity were on display at this year's NYC Puerto Rican Day Parade
    • "In their hijabs they look indistinguishable from the average Palestinian women which I found to be amusing."

      And they spoke so highly of you - bwaaahhaaahhhaaahhhaahhhaaaahhaaahhaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    • "I recently got to know a few Puerto Rican Muslim women."

      I doubt that, you're posts show you don't know shit and are incapable of learning.

    • Not really pertaining to this article per se, but it seems that marches in solidarity for justice are replete with representations of all us - women, men, children, people of all skin tones, creeds, sexual orientation and political affiliations - beautiful, all beautiful. Not exclusive, welcoming all.

      Marches in solidarity with zionism; however, are a homogenized group of yelling, spitting, frothing at the mouth neanderthals. Grotesque.

  • Nationwide 'rally against Sharia law' reflects violent surge of Islamophobia since Trump election
    • "Huston was surprised to see how often anti-Sharia protesters attempted to use liberal rhetoric to cloak their racism, citing examples of signs reading “RIP LGBT under Sharia” and similar expressions about women’s rights, and human rights. Huston argues that protesters “seemed to have learned that if they just say “we hate brown people” we’ll call them racists, and if they say “we hate foreigners” we’ll call them xenophobes, and if they say “we hate Muslims” we’ll call them Islamophobes.” What Huston describes is an attempt to “flip the script” in order to rationalise their anti-Muslim sentiment. “It’s very disingenuous, and I loathe the idea of white nationalists trying to derail and distract people with this stuff.”

      They must be using the zionist playbook because this sounds just like die-hard zionists and their apologists rhetoric when 'arguing' with antizionists. There's only one good thing that has come out of tRUMP's victory and that is the masks, almost all of them, are off for good.

      Excellent post Kaisa of Finland!

    • You keep trying though .

    • Israeli on israeli violence - not so much, unless you are female. Israeli on 'the other' violence - a daily occurrence. Go figure your own damn self.

      Hezbollah to the north, Hamas to the south, lions, tigers and bears, oy vey! Trying to normalize israelis doesn't work though and the quaint notion about them 'getting their kids to school on time and fighting traffic to get to work' is hilarious - keep 'em coming steverino, betcha you got a million of 'em (all stinking to high heaven too). 8^P

    • A neighbor told me israelis "don't hate, they just don't care". I agree that they don't care. However, they do hate and are scared shitless, and isn't hatred the manifestation of fear? I was walking my dog this morning and a man told me to get my leashed dog out of his way as he scurried by me as quick as his short ass could go. I assume he is terrified of large dogs and that fear manifested itself in anger towards me. Whatever, I see irrational fear all the time.
      There is no toughness or strength in the literal meaning of the words. Only the attitude of the one with the most weapons, military, money and the backing of the u.s., so fuck everyone else. Like the jerk on the school yard who is cruel to everyone he/she deems to be weaker. Not because this bully can clean everyone's clock, but this bully has a friend with muscle who'll clean your clock for him. Most israelis are cowards, dangerous, ignorant and a number of them are armed to the teeth. "Ain't nothing more dangerous than a fool with a cause".

  • Israel and P.A. go forward with plan to cut electricity to Gaza by 40 percent
    • The PLO had better get itself some new leadership. I'm heartbroken and sickened by Abbas' continued collusion with the enemy of the people he's supposed to represent and respect and they aren't israeli jews. God forbid some horrible disease spreads out in Gaza because of lack of clean water and electricity. I fear a Never Again moment and the right and evangelicals will blame them for not cooperating (read groveling, begging, betraying one another) with the G-damn israelis.

  • Israeli ambassador says he admires and envies Palestinians for keeping refugee issue alive
  • Intersectional feminism: Wonder Woman, Palestinians, Wakanda and Zionism
    • Kamala Harris is Wonder Woman!

    • beauty is only skin deep

      saying used to say that a person's character is more important than how they look. Cambridge Dictionary.

      P.S. - Gadot is a feminist like Ivanka Kushner, iow, she isn't.

    • Why did wonder woman have to be protrayed by a zionist jew? Does this complete the ziofication of the u.s.a.? I'm sure tRUMP would invite her to the WH anytime for some geriatric cofveve.

    • Gal Gadot's beautiful face and body - classic honeytrap. No matter how much lipstick or how few garments adorn this b****, she's a zionist through and through. Prayers for the IDF? Oh hell no; unless you're praying for their destruction, that is - hallelujah!

  • No anti-Zionists allowed on Hadassah panel exploring 'tension' between feminism and Zionism
    • Many years ago I was asking a question in an intro to judaism class and I used the term Hebrew(s). The instructor, who called himself rabbi, didn't bother answering my question but did talk to me as if I were an idiot stating "We don't use that word (he wouldn't even say it); it's archaic. We're called jews". Well f&%@ if I knew! I came to the conclusion that he couldn't use the term Hebrew because he has no connection to them at all and the term 'jew' was the term to use, just like the half million or so settlers living on palestinian land.

  • Protesters disrupt 'Celebrate Israel' parade as New York leaders salute Israel
    • Radical zionist terrorism is so mainstrem that u.s. senator will wave the flag of blue and white and march to the tune of the black and yellow.

  • The Israeli army enters the inquisition business
    • "Does anyone actually think soldiers arrive at the conversion course with anything resembling free will? "

      Of course not. Am curious if the non-jew conscripts will be required to have a shave, haircut and just a little off the tip clip. Now the zionists won't have to worry about saying how great israel is for having non-jewish soldiers in their ranks - look ma! Presto changeo - they're all jews now (at least during their 'service'). tf.

      And then there's this.
      Trump Effect Inspires Radical Christians in Military - Newsweek
      http://www.newsweek.com/christian-fundamentalists-us-armed-forces-national-security-thre...

      "Donald Trump’s election has led to such a steep rise in fundamentalist Christian evangelizing and religious bigotry in the U.S. armed forces that the matter is reaching the level of a “national security threat,” according to information shared exclusively with Newsweek by an organization that represents and advocates for secular and minority religious views in the military.

      The number of complaints from servicemen and -women in the Army, Air Force, Marines and other service branches to the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) has doubled in number since November 2016, according to lawyer Michael “Mikey” Weinstein, a former Air Force officer who founded the organization.

      Many of the recent charges are coming from members of minority religions, including Roman Catholics, Jews and Muslims, and from atheists. Among the complaints: military family and marital therapy programs are being infused with Protestant Christianity, which would violate the U.S. Constitution; open anti-Semitism; anti-LGBT statements, posters, symbols and bullying; openly anti-Muslim teachers and Islamophobic attacks; a rise in on-base evangelizing; and increased pressure on recruits or lower-level personnel and service members to convert to fundamentalist Christianity.

      “With the advent of Trump as the commander in chief of our armed forces, MRFF has experienced a massive influx of new military and civilian personnel complaints of religion-based prejudice and bigotry, most of them coming from non-fundamentalist Christians being persecuted by their military superiors for not being ‘Christian enough,’” Weinstein tells Newsweek.

      He says noncommissioned officers at one Air Force base reported that their superiors told them Trump would make it USAF policy that in order for “disbelieving Jews” to be allowed into the USAF or deemed fit for promotions, they would have to show via objectively established behavior that they were at least honestly “considering the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

      At another base, the wife of a combat-decorated Muslim U.S. Naval officer, who was wearing a Muslim headscarf, was surrounded in the commissary and spit upon and cursed as not being a “true American and being a spy and a terrorist.” She was with her children at the time."

      Holy shit.

    • "Weiss: This is not meaningless. No, but Israeli leaders knew it was just bluster. They weren’t deceived, fearful. The Israeli “panic” was all theater. Eban, over at the UN, was the stage manager and scriptwriter. He titled the chapter of his memoir on ‘67, “To live or perish.” A nice touch. He once observed, “Propaganda is the art of persuading others of what you do not necessarily believe yourself.” Eban was a virtuoso in the propagandist’s craft."

      The world is full of virtuoso's of this particular craft.

      Why hasn't a phrase like radical zionist terrorism been mainstreamed by now?

    • A very small number of Palestinians have succeeded in killing colonialist squatters on Palestinian land and stealing Palestinian water .

The real question is why does the world continue to pay zionists to murder and rape Palestinians and steal their land.

  • The message of the hunger strike: No power can break us
    • israel is always operating on contravention of international law. International law means the u.n., correct? Wouldn't it be helpful if demonstrations at the u.n. took place regularly? israel has to be brought to court and suffer the consequences of its continued flaunting of the international community who created established these laws, the same community that allowed israel to be a member of the u.n. Doesn't anyone have a backbone? On the other hand, my husband would say that you don't wait for someone to give you your freedom, you take it.

  • Hebron settlers are trying to erase the city's Palestinian identity
    • "The signs are illegal even under Israeli law".

      Of course they are. But israeli law doesn't mean jackshit if they aren't enforced. There are enough artists among Palestinians to make beautiful signs to counter the hideous lies spread by these fake jews.

  • Reflections of a daughter of the '48 Generation'
    • My point, which I realize I don't express very well, is that the conversation the writer had with an american jew 70 years ago is the same conversation heard today. No real change on the part of american jews. imo american jews are the biggest problem here. Too many have a wild west fantasy they get to play out by living on stolen land, carrying big guns and shooting at a civilian population that apparently they only see as targets and they are the biggest welfare queens in the ME.

    • “Among our patrol, there are two Americans who only came to the country a month and a half ago. Nice fellows. But yesterday when they saw all the Arabs–the women and children returning to their villages starving for bread, they became ‘soft-hearted and had pity on them,’ and in the evening they began to shout that if the Jewish state lacked the means to take responsibility for the economy in the territories it occupied, it should never have gotten involved in a war. And that there’s no reason just to kill Arabs without any justification. In short, this America, with its idealistic Zionists, gets on one’s nerves sometimes. Their entire philanthropic approach towards life and the world is also expressed in their attitude to Zionism, and of course also in regard to this problem which I have mentioned.” - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2017/05/reflections-daughter-generation/#sthash.NurHZsAi.dpuf

      An American jew spoke to a zionist israeli jew with exactly the same content being spoken today. 70 years later? this conversation could have taken place today. Sickening.

      Those neighbors are being squeezed in every direction by the welfare queens of the ME, the colonialist thieves and criminals living on Palestinian land and putting their families, including their master race babies in danger. That's called child abuse in the real world. I have no compassion for israeli colonialist provocateurs or the governments that fund them. Get the fuck out of Palestine.

    • There actually is a place in the world where jews are treated like garbage regularly and that is in the so-called jewish state and those being ethiopian and african-american jews and, incredibly, holocaust survivors. It's quite a trick to hold the world accountable for antisemitism and at the same time treat your fellow jews with contempt. It's like animal farm. All jews are equal, but some jews are more equal than others.

    • And it gets an incredibly enormous amount of play in parts of the world where there were no concentration camps! There are 55 holocaust memorials/museums in the united states, the country that had concentration camps - for it's Japanese-American citizens. There is one museum in the u.s. that is dedicated to slavery (1619-1863), ONE. Yet things are still so f'd up in the u.s. that #blacklivesmatter has to be. Where in the world are jews in danger, hiding in fear for their lives and shot down in the streets in front of their families like dogs? Thankfully, no where at all. The israelis, with the tremendous financial and political backing of the united states, are the hunters. They prey upon the people of the land of Palestine with a cult-like thirst for their blood. This cult of death is unreal. The marching out of the survivors then returning them to their mostly impoverished lives, scratching out a meal from the garbage bins. Why isn't holocaust remembrance day a celebration of the end of nazi europe and the achievements of jews? To inculcate a culture of we were hunted and murdered and now we can do it is horribly unhealthy. If a child in a non-third world country was raised this way, child protection would remove him/her from that influence. Unfortunately, that can't be done here since this abuse of children is the policy of naftali bennett. I really fear the next generation of israeli jews. Why don't israelis celebrate life? Holocaust remembrance day is a sick pagan ritual. The holocaust is over.

      The nakba is an israeli work in progress.

They also would rather die and see their dear progeny die than live in a secular democratic state with equal rights for all which is stupid, but people are stupid.

    • But the real question is: Why were the 750,000 refugees not allowed home after the end of the hostilities? ONE HAS to remember the situation. It was three years after the smokestacks of Auschwitz and the other camps had gone cold. Hundreds of thousands of wretched survivors crowded the refugee camps in Europe and had nowhere to go but to the new Israel. They were brought here and hastily put into the homes of the Palestinian refugees. - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2017/04/return-exchange-between/comment-page-1/#comment-877116

      What is that god-awful stench? Oh, it's the paragraph above. The zionists had enough money and backing before 1948 to build housing on the land they'd already stolen to prepare for what they'd planned - masses of jews from all over to their jewish state. But instead got so damn many of the 'wretched survivors' (nice wording avnery - but that's how they were seen by the 'beautiful ones' the zionist version of the aryan) who didn't deserve new housing at all and could just move right into the homes of the Palestinian owners (some even with a meal on the table); what would they care, right?

      I can't get over how blase' avnery ziosplains, as if it would suffice to anyone.

    • As I wrote repeatedly: The history of the Jews will not be marked any more by the alleged killing of Christ nor by the Nazi atrocities in WWII, but will be indelibly marked by what they have done to Palestinians, deliberately and constantly, without remorse, regret or remedy, thus reflecting that side of the human spirit which does not learn from history and that which empty itself of its own moral posture. - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2017/04/return-exchange-between/comment-page-1/#comment-877115

    • Israel said to refuse to extradite teen JCC bomb hoaxer to US | The ...
      http://www.timesofisrael.com › Jewish Times

      "Israel has refused a US request to extradite an Israeli-American teenager suspected of making hundreds of bomb threat calls to American Jewish institutions over the last several months, a report said Sunday.

      According to Channel 2, Israel intends to hand down a severe indictment of its own on Monday against the hacker from Ashkelon, and therefore denied the US Department of Justice request to extradite the teen.

      The 18-year-old is expected to be charged with crimes involving extortion with menaces, causing panic and money laundering.

      On Friday, he was charged in the US with 28 counts of making threatening calls and conveying false information to police, according to the indictment filed in federal court in Orlando. Separately, he was charged with three more counts of making threatening calls, conveying false information and cyberstalking in an indictment filed in federal court in Athens, Georgia.

      Investigators from both countries have been questioning the youth since his arrest last month, and new details of his alleged crimes are continuing to emerge.

      The youth, whose name is under a gag order in Israel, also reportedly charged for his phone threat services on occasion, specifying incidents in which he issued bomb threats to US educational institutions, forcing their evacuation, on behalf of students who wanted exams postponed. He was paid in Bitcoins for these threats; almost 2 million shekels (more than half a million dollars) worth of Bitcoins was found in his internet bank account.

      If tried and convicted in the US, he would face a lengthy jail term, and US prosecutors are set to seek his extradition, Channel 2 reported Saturday. However, it is not clear that Israel’s state prosecutors, proceeding with their own case against him, will readily agree, the TV report noted.

      It added that the youth has expressed no sorrow or regret for his actions."

      Thanks israel! The best friend the u.s. has never had!

You're still trying to pin this all on talknic, whose comment is idf/GoI policy wrt children who aren't jews, and you know it.

      You were shocked by the possibility of this bloodthirsty reality, which is regularly visited upon Palestinians, could ever be done to jews. It's only bloodthirsty if jews are the target. So how does that actually work in your mind? You avoid answering the question by stating something you yourself don't believe at all, that 'no child deserves to be murdered'. Then curiously you add 'not even Jewish children'. You just said 'no child deserves to be murdered'. Didn't you already include jewish children? I assumed 'no child' means all children. You sure fooled me for a half second! Why do you make jewish children exceptional? Because jewish children aren't like other children, right? jewish blood is more precious, right? Spare us all your phony outrage and crocodile tears.

      "That which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow. That is the whole Torah; the rest is the explanation; go and learn."

    • "Wow, talknic, how bloodthirsty can you get?"

      talknic took his post directly from the IDF playbook - how obtuse and morally bankrupt can you continue to be by completely ignoring the facts of what has and continues to be done in gaza and the treatment of palestinians in palestine and israel? Don't like the do unto others scenario? Don't tell talknic - take it straight to the perpetrators jon-jon.

    • Practice makes praefectus.

    • agree that the '1948 zionists were a strange group '. and their offspring are even stranger.

    • I think Jeffie used to be a rabbi with his own dysfunctional little congregation of the Practice Makes Belief Completely Unnecessary Temple , but went too far after claiming he was a deity his own self, and was defrocked and deflocked. How sad; just when everyone was getting used to the 6 hour streams of consciousness dripping like a leaky faucet from the bimah to the lucky folks with the front row seats Friday nights to the wee hours of Saturday morning.

    • I just figured out the purpose of the haredim! They are not a cherished segment of israeli society, quite the opposite, but they should be. Yes, the haredim and holocaust survivors provide the much needed cover for the zionist enterprise. How? They are the face of israel (they and the IDF - but the IDF in tefillin praying on top of their tank at sunrise). They are the ones that are shown to the west as representative of the 'chosen people'. How hard would it be to convince all them bible-thumpin' israeli-chumpin' evangelical christians in 'merica and elsewhere to send every dime and dollar they can spare to the state of israel if they were shown it's nothing but an atheist/hedonist Caligula's Rome or Lot's Gomorrah and not a land of holy rollers, such as they see themselves. Got it. ;^)

      "Israel was founded by atheists". Hold the phone! 'israel' was Palestine for centuries jack and continued to be called Palestine until May '48. It was full of muslims and christians and a few jews before the nakba so it was hardly the atheist disneyland you described.

      I'm not an israeli, can't be that at all. That's what is says, but it's not who I am. Have a problem with that?

      BTW , I didn't ask you for an explanation Mr, Know-it-All. Strong jewish atheist culture? Why? Because there are a lot of atheists in israel that are heavily weaponized? You don't live here and you base all of your crap on what? A visit to a shitty restaurant in israel where you saw magical jewish cups and got a hardon seeing the idf!? You're are one sick MF and claim you're a jew and an atheist? To me your an atheist, period, and are in no position at all to question whether I'm jewish or not - your 'you are supposedly israeli' doesn't mean jackshit now - you called me a christian and, you know what, you've got a real talent for mislabeling every fucking thing and should really try to control that particular impulse, because all you do is sound like a jerk of all trades and master of none.

    • WTF is an atheist jew? If you're an atheist, aren't you just an atheist, period?

    • "You are looking backwards to a Judaism that no longer exists, designed to serve a Jewish people that no longer exist, in a political position that is no longer relevant.'

      Okay then; there's no need for holy days including, but not limited to pesach, yom kippur, shavuot, shabbat; kashrut, and all of its accoutrements including your fav - 'jewish sinks' or, most important of all, no need for a jewish state. What a relief! Glad that's over with.

It sounds pathological actually along with your 'immense pride' in seeing state-sanctioned murderers and rapists, what you call a jewish army. You represent to me, what was called by Ms. Hannah as 'the banality of evil'.

      The bizarre chapter of Joan Peters’s contribution to the Middle East debate does not end with her death. Her arguments, both those she adopted from others and those she formulated herself, still constitute a huge portion of the go-to hasbara repertoire. From Time Immemorial is an embarrassment that taints anyone who embraced it as well as those who continue to do so. - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2015/01/legacy-peters-immemorial/#sthash.inQz3Wal.dpuf

  • Trump's Gambit: Sacrificing a fascist for establishment approval and Israeli propaganda
  • Passover in the era of permanent Jewish occupation
    • "How can Jews celebrate Passover in such a context?"

      I can't. I'm pretty sure that will be mansplained/ziosplained by the trolls to mean one or all of the below:
      a) I'm not a jew, what jew doesn't celebrate the feast of freedom?.
      b) I don't live in israel.
      c) I'm antisemitic?

      But my feeling about jews, in israel particularly, who'll be ready to lounge, stuff themselves, drink too much and sing, horribly, Go down Moses and laugh and be merry may be because of one or all of the below:
      a) They have no heart.
      b) They have no fear of the Lord their God.
      c) They have no sense of irony.
      d) They do not believe they will be judged.

  • Israel’s ‘right to exist’ and the Palestinian right to resist
    • "They can protest, cry, whine or sue but there is really no legitimate way that Jewish sovereignty will be given up without a catastrophic battle which seems more and more likely add the Palestinians and their bds cohorts pursue maximalist demands with preconditions to even negotiate"

      shorter version, the Palestinians will experience a holocaust which will end once and for all the protest, crying, whining and lawsuits.

      And its all their fault, of course.

      Why change such a great dynamic?

    • ++++++

      It's amazing how this word game has entrapped the world from doing the right thing wrt israel. At the very least, the u.n. needs to kick israel out of the u.n.; they continually break the rules and flaunt their disdain for the u.n. and even threaten to leave. Beat 'em to the punch, u.n. and revoke their membership.

  • Trump makes war, and everyone swoons
    • Lindsey Graham, McCain, McConnell, Hillary; all the war mongers in Washington and the world, experienced collective orgasmic joy with tRUMPs unlawful unleashing of weaponry and war on the Syrian people. He sure didn't hurt the Syrian military. Not even a dent to any landing strip and the chemical weapons? Unharmed. I imagine he had a quick convo with Vlad to make sure he had the correct logistics that were guaranteed to do the least possible damage to syrian/russian military. And those 'beautiful babies' he went on an on about, is he going to do anything to provide safety and shelter from this unending storm. Not at all. Does he have a plan going forward? Not at all. I think he just wanted to get his shot off on the world stage and see how it feels. I'm afraid it felt too good.

  • Israel, naked under the microscope in Cork
    • It's so shameful. And Nikki Haley is shaping up to be a real whore for the blue and white

    • "Ghada Karmi articulately addressed the most taboo subject of all: the very legitimacy of the Israeli state. After outlining her view that the state is a “stitch-up”, illegitimate from its very foundations, she advocated a re-evaluation of Israel’s membership in the UN. Israel was granted membership in the world subject to living up to its obligation, which it has willfully and continually defied."

      She is an incredible speaker, clear, precise and brilliant. I wish for the u.n. to ceremoniously with much pomp and great circumstance, kick israel out of the u.n. and the u.s., with buses at the ready to escort each and every one straight to the airport and away.

  • You know your country's in trouble when you're afraid to put on a bumper sticker
  • Among those arrested for disrupting Friedman confirmation hearing, only the Arab protesters face federal charges
    • It seems that the u.s. is taking its cues from israel wrt how to deal with Palestinians - harshly of course; the fact that they're american citizens doesn't matter, they're Arabs/Hamas/Hezbollah/ISIS (except for the Saudis of course, they're special). The jewish protestors are treated with kid gloves.

  • Israeli Jews maintain the occupation because it is in their interest -- Noam Sheizaf
    • "For people who maintain a kosher home-and are hosting the seder- the days before Passover really are rather busy,"

      Yes, it must be extremely difficult. I feel for you I really do. And I used to be so concerned about the kosherness of my home. It seemed so important to maintain a 'fit' home, a shalom bayit. However, years ago I questioned how can one keep a kosher home when one lives in a filthy country with swine running it? I've given up. No matter how much bleach or Ajax I use, I can't remove the stench and the uncleanness of where I live from my home. And it has absolutely nothing to do with hygiene. And please don't take the easy way out and tell me I can leave - I've known that all along. If I can't do anything else, I can remind you (and me) that this evil will not go unpunished. If you believe 'the book', and you'll be reading a haggadah with the references to pharaoh, how God hardened his heart, the plagues that were unleashed and their end in the sea, etc., think on this. If God gave this punishment to pharaoh, who didn't even know him, how much worse will the punishment be for God's so-called 'chosen', who profess to know him and love him, who have his book of his laws and commandments, and yet act worse than the so-called gentiles?

      There is one special treat during pesach that always made me smile though and that was a room full of white folks singing Go down Moses (badly). Another stolen treasure from a people who actually experienced slavery, the worst known to humanity and still, in their own country, are treated like 2nd class citizens to this day. And jews sing 'Go down Moses'. That takes more than chutzpah, that's an abomination. The 'slaves' in Egypt had their own homes, raised their own children, their families remained intact, raised their own food, had livestock too. Doesn't sound bad really. Course they lived at the whim of pharaoh and any Egyptian. Who lives like that these days? Hmmmm.

      A judge rules Trump may have incited violence … and Trump again ...
      https://www.washingtonpost.com/.../a-judge-rules-trump-may-have-incited-violence-and...
      3 hours ago - The courts keep taking Donald Trump both seriously and literally. And the president's word choices are proving to be a real headache.

      The courts keep taking Donald Trump both seriously and literally. And the president's word choices are proving to be a real headache.

      A federal judge in Kentucky is the latest to take Trump at his word when he says something controversial. Judge David J. Hale ruled against efforts by Trump's attorneys to throw out a lawsuit accusing him of inciting violence against protesters at a March 2016 campaign rally in Louisville.

      At the rally, Trump repeatedly said “get 'em out of here” before, according to the protesters, they were shoved and punched by his supporters. Trump's attorneys sought to have the case dismissed on free speech grounds, arguing that he didn't intend for his supporters to use force. But Hale noted that speech inciting violence is not protected by the First Amendment and ruled that there is plenty of evidence that the protesters' injuries were a “direct and proximate result” of Trump's words.

      “It is plausible that Trump’s direction to ‘get 'em out of here’ advocated the use of force,” Hale wrote. “It was an order, an instruction, a command.”

      On March 1, 2016, then Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was heard shouting, "out, out," as Trump supporters and protesters clashed at his rally in Louisville, the day after his Super Tuesday victories. (Reuters)

      It's merely the latest example of Trump's team arguing that his controversial words shouldn't be taken literally. But though that argument may have held water politically during the 2016 campaign, it has since repeatedly hurt Trump's cause when his words have been at issue in legal proceedings.

      Just last week, a federal judge in Hawaii rejected an argument from Trump's attorneys asking that his travel ban executive order be evaluated without considering Trump's and his team's past comments about the motive behind the ban and whether it targets Muslims.

      Trump's campaign in 2015 proposed a blanket ban on all Muslim immigration to the United States — the news release remains on his campaign website — and the courts ruled that this rhetoric was relevant when it halted his first travel ban, despite Trump's team arguing that it wasn't a Muslim ban. In striking down the first travel ban, the courts cited Rudolph W. Giuliani's comments that suggested Trump sought to make his Muslim ban idea legally practical.

      “So when first announced it, he said, 'Muslim ban,'" Giuliani said. “He called me up. He said, 'Put a commission together. Show me the right way to do it legally.'”

      When Trump and his team issued a revised travel ban a few weeks ago, the courts again halted it and again cited that past rhetoric.

      An updating list.
      By Slate Staff

      "Since the election of President Donald Trump, news outlets and social media accounts have swelled with reports of swastikas at schools, racist taunts, and other hate-fueled attacks and acts of intimidation. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which has aggregated media reports and gathered submissions from its website, catalogued 1064 such incidents, 13 of which were later debunked as false reports, in the first month after Trump won the presidency. (Twenty-six of those incidents were perpetrated against Trump supporters.) The SPLC has presented that data in aggregate, creating an invaluable record of the scope of post-election hate crimes.

      Slate’s goal, in the curated feed below, is to present individual incidents of racism, misogyny, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, anti-Semitism, and anti-immigrant sentiment as we see them reported. We will update this feed frequently, and though our list is not comprehensive, we aim to make it as complete as possible.

    • "So who lied to you and told you the JDL was not banned? Not only did the US ban the evil JDL, but ISRAEL supposedly did too."

      Kay24 -
      Hi - I couldn't find where JDL had been banned in the US but 'israel' did (though it's impossible to tell). If the u.s. could ban the JDL, they sure could ban the KKK.

    • "The JDL has not been "banned" in the US"

      Right, much to the shame of the US, but the JDL is in good company; the KKK and aryan nations haven't been banned in the US either. Ehh, what's up with your point "doc"?

      "The JDL was founded in New York in 1968. According to the Southern Poverty Center the group was designated “a right-wing terrorist group” by the FBI in a 2000/2001 report. Its members are responsible for attempted bombings of congressional offices and a mosque, planting a smoke bomb in New York, and a number of assaults including beating the staff of Jewish organizations and a holocaust survivor.

[...] Since 1968, JDL operations have killed 7 persons and wounded at least 22. Thirty-nine percent of the targets were connected with the Soviet Union; 9 percent were Palestinian; 8 percent were Lebanese; 6 percent, Egyptian; 4 percent, French, Iranian, and Iraqi; 1 percent, Polish and German; and 23 percent were not connected with any states. Sixty-two percent of all JDL actions are directed against property; 30 percent against businesses; 4 percent against academics and academic institutions; and 2 percent against religious targets."

    • I am so sick of violence, particularly against women - any women. It's rampant. It doesn't matter where you live, if you are female you'll be objectified in all kind of ways. The current u.s. president legitimizes the objectification of women and at the same time claims that 'no one' respects women like he does. I hope so. His kind of respect isn't wanted or needed by any women. The fact that 53% of white women voted for tRUMP is a shocking and sad indicator of what women have put up with and continue to put up with from men, be it their boss, their doctor, their professors, their brothers, their fathers and their husbands - tRUMP is just one more asshole those women are used to being under the boot of. #MAGA #ISRAEL #SAUDI ARABIA #WORLD

To create a reaction that will lead to the injuries or better yet deaths of colonialist jews, so these b%&ches can cry to the world about the dangers they face in this 'rough neighborhood' they live in. So people will say that those colonialists have the right to live wherever they want and those nasty ayrabs need to be taught a lession. It's nothing new, it's a continuous cycle of destruction and death brought to palestinians by the most 'moral army' in the world and their brothers in arms, the saints, the men of god - iow - those redneck hillbillies in the video above.

  • Rights group: Israeli online incitement towards Arabs doubled in 2016
  • Despite fawning praise in press, Batsheva receives a cold welcome in Brooklyn for complicity in occupation
    • No matter the facade, be it the smug, cold smile of Ayelet Shaked or the dancing fools from Batsheva Dance Company, there's no hiding the true face of 'israel'.

      I've been watching the news coming from the u.s. and I can't get over how much tRUMP and Netanyahooo hate the people they were elected to serve. Brian Williams and guests were talking about tRUMP's need for an enemy (Muslims) and they even observed that he may in fact want a terrorist attack to occur in order to get everyone on his side. Duh! That's the way we roll in 'israel' - if you can't lie about terrorism you have to pray for an attack and hopefully if you engage in enough 'friction activity' you'll get blowback, I mean terrorist attacks. Wake up america!

  • 'Israel receives more US military aid than every other country in the world combined' -- New York Times reveals
    • Duhbaker - Israel is the welfare queen of the world. And you are full of shit. That's what happens when a country with a majority of lazy slobs decide they don't have to do anything but whine and scream antisemite to get whatever they want and continue to rob and steal from the indigenous people. If it weren't for the u.s., the zionist state wouldn't exist. Imagine how much different the world would be were it not for the zionist cult and borderless state. Jews would actually live with their neighbors instead of being their overlords. I can only imagine what a much more peaceful world, at least in our part of it, we'd have.

  • Under Trump we cannot expect 'the system' to protect us, but we can protect ourselves
  • Netanyahu scandals reflect corruption at the heart of Israeli society
  • Dennis Ross's advice to Trump is 'bullshit, delusional or lying,' to gut two-state concept -- Peace Now
    • Extracting a promise from 'israel' is as meaninful as promises made by netanyahooo and the promises made by tRUMP. The israelis aren't partners for peace of any kind because they don't have the heart for it. And don't want it to begin with.

  • Why the Personal Has Always Been Political: an Iranian-American reflects on the Trump executive order on refugees
    • Thank you for sharing some of your history here. It's something when we come to realize that 'family' doesn't have to have blood as it's bond. That bond isn't very strong after all when it's tested by the world we live in.

  • Leading Clintonite worries that Trump will sell out Israel in forging deal with Russia
    • It's okay for the u.s. to get played according to these traitors, as long as the playing is done BY israel and not against it. Treason looks like her, and every member of team tRUMP, including the tRUMP himself.

  • Palestinian teen in Gaza dies after refusing to serve as a collaborator for Israel in exchange for medical care
  • The Israeli police’s extrajudicial execution of Israeli citizen Yaqoub Abu Al-Qia’an
    • Wow Jackdaw, in your haste to zio-shame me, you inadvertently told the truth - the driver no longer had control of his vehicle because he was in the process of dying thanks to the shoot first, leave no witnesses sons o' zion.

      Thank you Annie, for being the sharpest tool in the MW shed :)
