  • Huma Abedin dumps Anthony Weiner, occupation denier
    • 'It is not like he had a dungeon where he kept women for flailing. He sent some photos to some cuties online.'

      What a weird comparison. No, he prefers to self-flail and then send the unsolicited graphics to women. There are millions of reasons to hate social media; this is only one.

    • Mooser
      "Weiner’s taking a heck of a risk. What if somebody e-mails him back a picture of the real thing, and sends him plummeting into a deep depression. And on top of that, a divorce? He likes to live dangerously."

      If only Samson were still around.

    • I won't waste any more time on this matter with you silamcuz. It, like Huma's marriage to the weiner, is over.

      I asked you if you'd feel the same if weiner beat her all the time and she finally decided to leave him but you didn't answer that.

      As you seem to be saying it is Huma's duty to stick with that sorry cocktail weinie of a man she married (and since I wasn't present at the ceremony, I don't know if oaths were exchanged, but how about being FAITHFUL), there's nothing more to say.

      "Whilst I support her right to leave or end the marriage, I disagree with the mindset that if your spouse mess up, then its divorce."

      It could be there is even more to this story than is being reported, ya think? Who is anyone outside the actual adults involved, to decide when someone can pull the plug on their marriage? Give it a rest; there are more important things going on.

    • Well, I'm glad you aren't God as I believe God is more compassionate and forgiving than his children are to each other.

      She's given him a chance to be her husband and not play the dong show whenever the urge hits him. He pulled this stunt right next to his child FFS and made him part of his exhibitionism.

      You can lead a weiner to a therapist, I suppose, but you can't make it change. Do you know anything about compulsive disorders or addictive behaviors?

      Can you appreciate how humiliating this must be? Just because HRC stood by her man, doesn't mean everyone should and I think she was thinking about the White House and maybe didn't want to be the first woman presidential hopeful who divorced her adulterous SOB because of facing reactions just like yours.

      Why is it okay for a man to be a whore?

      If he beat the hell out of her every night, would you sing the same song? I'm guessing you would, because an oath trumps behavior, right?

    • This isn't about you silamcuz or how you'd deal with a spouse who can't stop playing look what I got! 'That' is supposed to be for his wife's eyes only. Their son will suffer the loss of his father, but the father did this business while his son was lying right next to him. For that alone she should leave him.

    • absolutely right on.

    • Caption to the Weiner face shot above - 'Oops, I did it again'

  • 'Everything that we have done since 9/11 is wrong' -- the worldview of Major Todd Pierce (Retired)
    • This was a great interview Phil and I look forward to part 2.

      "a satisfaction that both parties are united on their foreign policy. No more of this antiwar dissent, or Democrats apologizing for what we’re doing. We finally silenced the antiwar left. There’s a triumphalism being expressed."

      It seems there is no difference at all between u.s. and 'israel'. It is so sickening.

  • Gaza 2 years on: These children are now gone forever and an empty space remains
    • "But I suspect that with typical anti-Semitic aplomb that it’s only the Jews you are concerned about."

      Really, what a surprise.

      Where is the antisemitism? What is it actually? Define antisemitism and show, not with a feeling you might have, but actually prove Mr. T's comment was antisemitic. The onus is on you to prove it, not for anyone you so blithely accuse to refute it. Go on.Will wait.

      I imagine you will slink back into your corner and froth at the mouth until you make an opportunity to slander again.

    • "but we’ve heard it before: end the i/p conflict, destroy the zionist entity and the greater middle east will become a paradise for children, women and minorities as well. "

      I don't think you've heard anything Dabakr as that requires the ability to listen and understand what is being said. What has been said time and time again is end the occupation of Palestine and get out of their land.

      Actually, if your definition of paradise is not being shot dead or maimed for life, having your house blown up after the perfunctory robbery; kidnapping, theft of land, jail without charge, etc., etc., etc....then the dissolution, destruction, dismantling, dismemberment, iow, THE END of the zionist enterprise is the only way. Most of the conflict in this part of the world is due to the zionist enterprise and all of its enablers.

  • Israeli forces shoot and kill unarmed Palestinian man, 38, for allegedly running toward them
    • "The details supplied by the army do not indicate the soldiers felt threatened by Hamed. According to army protocol, in incidents where no immediate threat is posed, suspects should not be fired upon. The army has yet to announce a legal investigation into the shooting, per the military’s new policy to investigate lethal shootings of Palestinians by soldiers".

      No worries IOF! An unarmed Palestinian man can be shot to death for the crime of running toward a group of heavily armed soldiers. No questions will be asked. The soldiers will get off, like the thousands upon thousands before them. I am screaming.

  • Video intifada
    • "Nevertheless, not until I saw footage of the “army’s” chaotic retreat from Lebanon, did I realise the depth of incompetence from the “officer” caste on down. The sight of stragglers strewn all over the area was one shock. Looking at army trucks speeding by without stopping to pick up the losers on foot… there’s no word that adequately describes my horror."

      Xanadou - are you referring to Lebanon 2006 when Gilad Shalit was captured? If so, I have to wonder, after reading your post, was he captured outright or left behind by the cowardly IOF running out of Dodge with their tails set firmly between their legs.

      They leave their own behind, then shriek to the world about 'our brave soldiers' captured by the animals, the beasts, the savage other. Seriously, pick up your trash as you run for the border, cowards.

    • "One might respond by pointing out an obvious truth: if Jews didn’t want their children killed, they wouldn’t move their families to the settlements."

      So true Froggy. I always think of this as the modern child sacrifice, but to whose god I don't know.

    • "At least, for now, they are confined to wreak havoc on the sovereign state of Palestine, recognized as such by 136 counties, and Palestinian citizens. "

      Yes, because the 'ICA'/IOF could never face an actual army without suffering huge losses. They aren't really an army in the sense that armies go into battle expecting death; what soldier doesn't know that he or she may die or be wounded in battle, not hoping for it, but knowing full well that's the likelihood. Israeli soldiers are fearful idiots and would cower in fear meeting a real 'army'. The loss of one IOF 'soldier' is more than they can bear. They're more the shooting fish in a barrel type of army, slaughtering civilians with every kind of weapon the u.s. will give them. Then call them 'battle-tested'. There's nothing they won't lie about; it was civilian-tested. There has never been any 'battles' per se, except for the bank accounts of american taxpayers for the last 3 generations, with no end in sight. This is the battle they're best at, they lose nothing, Americans and all the other 'others' will fight (and lose, with incalculable losses) their endless wars, all the while continuing to provide this rogue of rogue 'nation' with weapons to test on the captive civilian population of Gaza.

    • Netanyahoo is ever vigilent in his hateful diatribe against the Palestinians, he always has to have a lynch mob ready to carry out his unspoken and spoken commands and his justification of mob rule:

      "Palestinians are not like the English speaking viewers Netanyahu was addressing, he said. “They” just want their children killed. Netanyahu’s answer to the IDF doing the indefensible, is justifying the indefensible. "

      And in the twilight of the Obama presidency, Mr. Obama chose to remain a zionist.

  • 'Why do you have Arabic in this notebook?': 17-year-old American student strip searched and interrogated in Ben Gurion airport
    • Seriously is there any entity (outside the u.s. of course) that has caused more problems than JSIL? רק בלגן

    • " 'welcome' could be so threatening - it fits perfectly their attitude."

      I agree. But I think this is more like it.

    • What the US State Dept. should be saying wrt 'israel'
      'CONCERNING 'israel': Credible information indicates terrorist groups also seek to continue attacks against U.S.The U.S. government remains highly concerned about possible attacks against U.S. citizens, facilities, businesses, and perceived U.S. and Western interests. Private U.S. citizens are strongly discouraged from traveling to 'israel'. U.S. citizens are reminded that fighting on behalf of or providing other forms of support to designated terrorist organizations, such as JSIL and all of its entities, i.e., AIPAC, ADL, StandWithUs, CUFI, etc., does constitute the provision of material support for terrorism, which is a serious crime that can result in penalties including prison time and large fines.

  • ADL took US cops to Israeli prison, occupied Hebron and settler winery during counter-terror seminar
    • And nothing stinks so bad as the fruit of the whine.

    • So happy I provided you the opportunity to use a hash tag. Gloat away hophni.

    • "They also met with the head of the Palestinian civil police in Bethlehem and toured Christian holy sites. Real journalists don’t omit things that contradict their narratives. "

      Why don't you prove how great you think you are and provide the sources for the many bogus claims you make here? Do you actually think anyone is going to believe anything you write? You never have sources - only your opinions. Another limp noodle trolling the pages of MW.

  • France's burkini ban is a dangerous, Islamophobic assault on feminist values
    • This photo is disturbing on so many levels -
      4 cops, 1 woman.
      Her crime - dressing as she saw fit for the beach.
      The gawkers - not one of them it seems having enough curiosity (besides staring) to ask those fascists what crime was happening.

      How could any government feel it's their job enforce a dress code on a specific religious/ethnic group?

      If they feel this is needed, they best turn their attention to the ultra-orthodox and hassids in their midst. Are there any Amish in France? Krishnas? Fat people?

      Those men and women who feel it's their job to liberate Muslim women from their oppressive garments can just FOFFS.

      Maybe its blowback from all the failed attempts to 'liberate' Muslims and show them how great democracy is (especially wrt to clothing!), like they tried in Afghanistan and Iraq. Sort of like, if we can't force democratic values on them on their turf, we'll do in on ours dammit.

      Or more simply, objectification of the female body, which apparently belongs to everyone except the female herself.

      I can imagine Trump and all his little Trumpets really digging this.

  • Israel bans entry for two more US activists
    • "Americans leaders and congress forgets national pride when it comes to being treated badly by the nation they send aid the most. They keep turning the other cheek. "

      Another thing I've noticed they seem to forget is they need votes to keep their fucking jobs, unless the rules have been changed since I've been gone?

    • "You would expect such uncivilized behavior from a dictatorship or a rogue nation."

      Yes, but to be fair, israhell is a fascist rogue nation! That also happens to be the united states one true 'ally' in the ME. It is insane that american citizens are treated like dogs by these bastards. I hope Ms. Bailey and others raise as much hell as they possibly can, give interviews and spread this news far and wide. God knows if an israeli was treated like this in the united states, Netanyahoo would be on a plane to pull a stare down at the united nations, faster than you can say passport control.

  • I continued to act as if I was above feeling afraid. Till the last war
    • "In a society that regards weakness as a sort of sin, the message is to bury your feelings inside—to cover depression or pain with bravado. But I have learned that It’s a destructive delusion to tell yourself you’re OK when you are not—that living a lie corrodes from within."

      I'm being totally serious when I write that this is a most perfect description of zionism and every zionist govt from ben gurion to netanyahoo and I believe the notion of zionism and the creation of 'Jewish state' within the confines of Palestine and her people came from a collective mental illness, much like the national socialist movement. The process of burying one's feelings, especially if they're not acknowledged or respected by the society one lives in and instead dismissed, denigrated, minimized and mostly ignored, is a very dangerous thing to do and creates a lot of crazy behavior as everyone steps in line to ignore that very angry elephant in the room.

  • Clinton Foundation's 'good friend' Bahrain quashed Arab spring without protest from Sec'y Clinton
    • “And Clinton had very little to say against the Bahrain repression of nonviolent protesters.” -

      Could be this is the template for repression of nonviolent protesters in the u.s. after she or trump steal the white house, er, um, are elected.

  • Scottish football fans raise over 100,000 pounds for Palestine following flag controversy
  • A French, a Palestinian, and a black woman all wade into a pool
    • Froggy and oldgeezer - great posts!

      inbound and others - wtf do you care what kind of covering a woman chooses to wear? Something that is as personal as clothing shouldn't be legislated by anyone. I'd make an exception to a piece of clothing that cover's ones entire face but that's it. A burkini? The level of intolerance in the world is just ridiculous and was so disrespectful to these Muslim women. Would an orthodox Jew receive this kind of treatment and be forced to remove her modest clothing? By police and in front of a crowd. That feels like sexual abuse and I don't care what you men have to say about it, you aren't female so might not 'get it'.

      There are orthodox swimming suits that are varying degrees of full coverage also, but hell would freeze over before anyone demanded they undress so as to be like everyone else - antisemites! This is the acceptable hatred and demonization of 'the other' because of the misconception by non-Muslims that modesty is a horrible thing to subject a woman to when everybody knows women's bodies are meant to be on display and objectified 24/7.

  • A new milestone: BDS at the Olympics
    • "No it takes a different form but it is a deeply racist genocide, an ultra nationalist Zionist movement that has resulted in violence throughout the mideast and a rise of hatred against Jews."

      You'd think with their extreme dedication and diligence 24/7, that this is what their objective is.

      Talk about self-hating Jews!

    • Massive bombing for shooting off a bottle rocket that did no harm.

    • "the face of the Israeli judoka after the refused handshake has become one of the most memorable images from the Olympics. "

      Ah yes, the world according to catalan, as no one else really counts.

      I think the ear to ear smile of Gabby Douglas is probably one of the most memorable images, not the pout of an israeli athlete, followed by the traditional olympic 'stomping off to complain to the judges'. Priceless.

    • Absolutely right! It speaks volumes that they are still allowed to participate, as if they were a country and not just a space-occupying lesion in Palestine.

    • This literally brings tears of joy to my eyes. Thank you Nada for this most excellent article.

      "Every flag that flew in that stadium ripped at Israel’s projection of normalcy and its paper-thin veneer of “democracy.” And the media carried the news around the globe, amplifying the gesture."

      "israel" is great at the phony front, but not so much at details. Of course the zionist apologists will scream antisemitism, knowing full well it isn't hatred of Jews driving BDS or the athlete who refused to 'normalize' the zionist state's offering by shaking his hand.

      It takes courage to follow one's convictions and do the right thing, as Islam El-Shehaby did last week and will be seen as a hero in Egypt, and I'm sure to a good many outside of Egypt. Ms. Gabby Douglas will continue to catch hell for following her convictions and will be called a traitor, a non-patriot and most likely told by the Trump-ettes that if she doesn't love America she should leave the country. So much for the 'greatest democracy' in the world. How much easier it would have been for both of them to do what was expected of them, instead of what their conscience told them to do.

      Then there's the irony of the bus debacle, which I'm quite sure was missed by every israeli and zionist apologist here on these pages. It was wonderful. It may open the eyes of some people when they find out that israel has a history of segregated bus lines, even among their so-called own people (mehadrin anyone?), separate roads, walls that are supposed to be fences, life in the fast lane and life in the Palestinian only lane, etc., etc.

      It's ridiculous to assume that attending the Olympic games legitimizes and normalizes the zionist state, or any other 3rd world dictatorship or enterprise built on racism; nothing can do that because it's not normal. It's wrong. It's immoral. And it must end. This Olympic season, people weren't willing to play 'let's pretend israel is a democratic 'place' that treats all of it's citizens the same, and doesn't hold almost 2 million people captive. And it's about damn time.

      As miracles do happen, maybe FIFA will gather its strength and collective balls and give israel the boot.

  • After Palestinian takes gold in Rio for Jordan, Israelis claim his roots are 'Israeli'
    • Q: Is there no end to your BS?
      A: Jordan is Palestine.

      Proving once agian, there is no end to your BS.

      Jordan is not Palestine - Al Jazeera English

      "The plan to turn Jordan into a Palestinian homeland and to give Israel complete control over the historic land of Palestine is regularly rehashed by the Israeli right whenever there is international pressure, however minimal, on Israel to stop its expansionism.

      Last month, around half of the 120-member Israeli knesset, submitted "a two states for two peoples on both sides of River Jordan" proposal for discussion. In practice the proposal entails an expulsion of Palestinians to Jordan so that the kingdom becomes a de facto Palestinian homeland.

      The forceful revival of what has historically been referred to as the "Jordan option" comes amid growing international pressure over the building of Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

      The Israeli right, many of whom belong to the Likud party of Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, see the Jordanian option as an adequate and practical solution to plans to establish a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

      Dying 'two-state' solution

      The Israeli right's fear of a Palestinian state comes at a time when many Palestinians, including officials, believe that the two-state solution is all but dead.

      The rapid expansion of Israeli settlements, the erection of the separation wall, and the ongoing annulment of residency permits for Arabs in East Jerusalem, has left little room, if any, for a Palestinian state.

      But many in the Israeli right are concerned by the plan of Salam Fayyad, the Palestinian prime minister, to establish a de facto state by building institutions and housing across the lands of the West Bank, including in areas where Israeli forces remain.

      While many Palestinians are concerned that Fayyad's plan will only serve to transform the currently fragmented Palestinian territories into an entity that lacks contiguity and sovereignty, the Israeli right are afraid that any kind of Palestinian state, however distorted, will threaten their claim to the entire historic land of Palestine."

    • I have believed for a long time the only purpose is to have blood on everyone's hands, no matter how remote any 'connection' may be. If everyone's dirty, nobody is?

    • Is Palestinian in italics your doing or the Jewish Ziographic Agency? It seems other news outlets are stating Ahmad Abu Ghosh is Jordanian but as his grandparents were driven out of their country of Palestine, with thousands upon thousands of other Palestinians, and violently with deadly force, directed straight to Jordan by the IOF, now, in another unbelievable display of stupidy and chutzpah, the zionist state is trying to steal, yet again, the wealth of a Palestinian. Is there no end to your BS?

    • Well it's just like they explained it Annie, his grandparents lived in Israel and for some unknown reason packed up and moved to Jordan. Go figure.

      "Tell your people that since the Great Father promised that we should never be removed we have been moved five times. I think you had better put the Indians on wheels so you can run them about wherever you wish."

  • The politics of Jewish ethnocentrism
    • Would it be completely out of left field to wonder if holocaust survivors and their children (and it looks like children's children too...wait, there may be more) suffer survivor's guilt to the point of psychosis? The Goldberg's of the world seem to see a holocaust happening or in the making around every corner. At times, some of them almost sound like they wish they would have been there - not to try and stop it, but just to get a tattoo on their arms and demand the world pay for it. There's no doubt that it could have been stopped and wasn't and there's no sugar coating of that. However, Palestinians had nothing at all to do with it. No matter how Netanyahoo and Co. try to make Palestinians look like the architects of the 'final solution', it didn't go down like that and he should be in prison just for that alone.

      I think it's way past the time that antizionists have to continue to explain their positions to the Goldberg's of the world because anyone with a conscience can see how wrong the birth of the 'state of israel' was wrong since it was only an itch in Herzl's pants. I think instead of having to explain to the Goldberg's, etc, it has to be the other way around. And if what was done to them which they unflinchingly do to others, they would show what cowards they really are because seriously, no one can defend this, anymore than anyone could defend cold-blooded murder, theft, rape, pedophilia or necrophilia for that matter. I am so tired of seeing good people constantly being slandered (or worse) for standing up against evil. Yaakov brought up the senator from Georgia, Mr. Johnson, who actually apologized for using the T word (termites). Seriously, the Goldberg's have taken this to the point where there can be no discussion, serious or otherwise, about the zionist state. I have a dream that some day soon the Goldberg's of the world will be too ashamed to ever speak again.

  • The breathtaking arrogance of Alan Dershowitz's 'advice' to Black Lives Matter
    • "Those of us that support Black Lives Matter are not particularly interested in anything that he—a serial bully, and heedless flinger of hurtful and grotesquely exaggerated epithets, sycophant to the rich and powerful and arch-apologist for Israel’s long and constant history of ethnic cleansing—says to us."

      Good. Alan Dershowitz has no relevance. I'm sure he was against BLM long before the G word was used. BLM does not require the approval of the likes of you.

  • 'It's like we're born with guns in our hands': Young Israelis face prison as they resist military conscription
    • Yes, along with death threats and the arson. The Israeli soccer fans are well-known for their hate fests jokingly referred to as soccer games.

    • I know this isn't on track but just in response - I thought that the traditional thing in judo was to bow to one's opponent, not shake hands.

      That being said, I felt the israeli opponent was trying to start something with the handshake and storming off in anger when rebuffed. Dramarama - a gold medal event. Reminds me of israelis pushing their way onto a bus of Lebanese athletes then whining to the press they weren't allowed. I guess that saying 'what goes around, comes around' is really true.

      Personally, I don't think it should be required to shake the hand of an opponent anyway, it's just PC that looks good on TV but it doesn't mean anything.

    • "But Tair began to educate herself on Palestine. “I learned how cruel Israeli policies are towards Palestinians. I am not someone who can support cruelty, so I decided that I am not someone who can support the occupation.”

      I understand she didn't grow up in the average israeli household and had the ful support of her family when she refused, but it seems it really was just that simple for her - she can't support cruelty, so can't support the occupation. She didn't get tangled up (so far) in political correctness or what's the correct vocabulary wrt to the occupation.

      And the woman most definitely had to educate herself, because nothing in an israeli public school education is going to allow any other narrative than biblical, holocaust and 'Jewish independence' and as bad as that is, per Bennett's (education minister) and Regev ('culture' mnister) plans, it is going to get much worse. I'm so glad that Tair reached out to Omri and they are sisters in solidarity against the occupation, part of a larger group of young israelis refusing conscription because they can't support the occupation.

      Uh, okay. Well, thank God its on YouTube!

      It's amazing that someone who has been under the thumb of israeli's, seen so much ugliness and brutality, can speak the language of their oppressor and make it sound civilized. That makes him an exceptional artist.

      Get this memo:

      You just don't give a shit about this tragedy and shame on the zionist state you coldly refer to as 'tired old nag'.

      This all won't last much longer, thanks in large part to attitudes just like yours.

    • The US has a history wrt Indian adoption, which has a fairly recent history. The earlier history of christian churches taking Indian children to beat the Indian out of them, physically, spiritually and sexually predates the adoptions.

      Historical Perspective - Idaho Department of Health and Welfare

      The 1800’s brought many changes to the American Indian’s way of life. The U.S. government contributed to the changes in several ways. It removed Indian people from their homelands and put them on reservations. It passed laws that forbade Indian people to practice their traditional ways of spirituality. In 1819, the United States government established the Civilization Fund, the first federal policy to directly affect Indian children. It provided grants to private agencies, primarily churches, to establish programs to “civilize the Indian.”

      In a report to Congress in 1867, the commissioner of Indian services declared that the only successful way to deal with the “Indian problem” was to separate Indian children completely from their tribes. They sent missionaries to the reservations to become agents in hopes that the missionaries would be able to educate and Christianize Indian people. The missionaries were not only sent by the U.S. government, but they were also paid by the government.

      The ceremonies of the tribes were looked upon as being pagan and the people themselves looked upon as savages. The parents of Indian children were believed to be unfit. A policy of assimilation began – which removed children from the home and placed them in boarding schools, usually far away from their parents. As a result of these earlier policies and practices, tribes are often distrustful of state child welfare agencies and the Federal Government.

      More pertinent to the tribal response are the negative experiences many tribes have had with decades of federally imposed attempts to assimilate Native Americans into mainstream society. In 1893, compulsory school attendance was mandated for Indian children (Marr, 2002). This education took place in Indian boarding schools. One reason for removing children from their homes was to totally immerse them in the values of mainstream society (Marr, 2002). For Indian children who were students at boarding schools, the curriculum focused on survival skills they would need to live successfully on their own in a white world (Higgins, 2000). The boarding schools were often run by people who hated the children because they were Indian. Many children suffered child abuse in the form of beatings and sexual abuse.

      In 1880, a written policy made it illegal to use any native language in a federal boarding school. The children were forced to cut their hair and forbidden to speak their language. Some children, as young as six years old, committed suicide while in boarding schools by hanging themselves. In 1910, bonuses were used to encourage boarding school workers to take leaves of absence and secure as many students as possible from surrounding reservations. These “kid snatchers” received no guidelines regarding the means they could use. In 1884, the “placing out” system placed numerous Indian children on farms in the East and Midwest in order to learn the “values of work and the benefits of civilization.” Instead of being allowed to go home during the summer months, the students were hired out to non-Indian families utilized as forced labor for local farmers, businessmen, and craftsmen (Landis, 1996).

      Another example of an initiative that was devastating to tribes was the Indian Adoption Project of 1958, co-sponsored by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and the Child Welfare League of America (CWLA). The goal of this program was to place homeless Indian youth for adoption by non-Indian families who lived in large cities on the east coast (Earle, 2000). It was articulated in terms of providing “adoptive placement for American Indian children whose parents were deemed unable to provide a ‘suitable’ home for them” (Mannes, 1995, 267). The BIA paid states to remove Indian children from their homes on the basis of neglect. By 1967, 395 Indian children had been adopted through the project. As a result of extensive publicity about the program in the 1960’s, private agencies also focused on the adoption of Indian children by non-Indians. In 1965 alone, 696 tribal youth were adopted through these agencies.

      Little attention was paid by the Bureau of Indian Affairs or the states to provide services on reservations that would strengthen and maintain Indian families. As late as 1972, David Fanshel wrote in Far From the Reservation that the practice of removing Indian children from their homes and placing them in non-Indian homes for adoption was a desirable option. Fanshel points out in the same book, however, that the removal of Indian children from their families and communities may well be seen as the “ultimate indignity to endure.” Fanshel’s speculation bore out the truth of the matter.

      A 1976 study by the Association of American Indian Affairs found that 25 to 35 percent of all Indian children were being placed in out-of-home care. Eighty-five percent of those children were being placed in non-Indian homes or institutions. In a response to the overwhelming evidence from Indian communities that the loss of their children meant the destruction of Indian culture, Congress passed the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978.

    • How much more evidence is required to prosecute these war criminals? +972 has been publishing the stories of Yemenite and other "Arab" Jewish babies being stolen from their families for at least 2 years and maybe longer. Just taken, and grieving parents told their baby was dead, no body, no death certificate, nothing. The utter contempt shown to 'other' Jews is astounding, which makes the virulent hatred for Palestinians by Sephardic and Mizrahki Jews heartbreaking. Teaching children to hate their own skin.

      'Owned by a chinese company and product made in the US. Not sure it's israeli at all'. How come. They took, per their FAQ, a couple years to get it just right (meaning to confuse the source?). Anyway, g of protein is great, the 11 g of sugar ain't and all the creamy richness of the cheese doesn't change the fact it was cut by a zionist supremacist colonialist borderless 'state'.

    • As only a racist ideologue can.

    • A sane israeli would support the end of apartheid and occupation, the end of zionism and Jewish hegemony and equal status for all. What is so horrible about the end of something that has been and continues to be life-threatening to non-Jews? Stick with the facts. How can you continue to support a system that has destroyed the lives of millions of Palestinians? It's not been helpful to Jews worldwide BTW or anyone else for that matter except that priviledged group of welfare queens known as the settlers. How can you continue to support that? I'm tired of the conversation so one-sided. How can you possibly, sanely, continue to support this colonialist enterprise benedict?

    • Coming to a supermarket near you, zionist cheese to go with it's continual whine -

      "Tnuva, Israel’s biggest food maker, is giving its iconic cottage cheese an American spin and putting it on U.S. supermarket shelves starting this week.

      Sold under the Muuna brand and manufactured in Minneapolis, Tnuva's best-selling cottage cheese received a year-and-a-half makeover to conform to the American palate. That means, among other things, cottage cheese mixed with strawberry, pineapple, mango and other fruits, as well as a 50-day shelf life.

      “One of the growth engines for Tnuva over the coming years is developing operations overseas side by side with Israel,” CEO Eyal Malis said. “The Muuna brand in the United States, which is based on Tnuva’s strong assets and unique knowledge in making cottage cheese, marks a major milestone in taking the company into new international markets.”

      This kind of stood out for me "That means, among other things, cottage cheese mixed with strawberry, pineapple, mango and other fruits, as well as a 50-day shelf life. "

      What 'among other things' besides trying to make zionist palatable, sweet and creamy with a long shelf life. I have warned my family, they'll not be buying this either.

      In fact, Tnuva, which was bought by the Chinese company Bright Food last year, has been struggling with sales of its cottage cheese and other dairy products at home. Sales fell 5.4% in the first half of the year – though cottage cheese sales are little changed – and the company has been slashing prices 40% and 50% to entice shoppers.

      Tnuva’s status as the No. 1 cottage cheese in a country where it’s consumed in vast quantities is both an asset and a burden. When the company raised the price of its cottage cheese in the spring of 2011, it set off a Facebook protest that morphed into a summer of giant rallies and tent cities protesting the high cost of living, forcing the government to appoint a reform commission.

      In America, cottage cheese doesn’t have the same status. Sales of the category run about $1.2 billion annually – the market is split equally between national, local and private label brands – with Kraft as the market leader. Only about half of U.S. households regularly buy cottage cheese at all." Full article at :

      "The demographic stats are published by MLB, their categories. African-Americans’ exodus from baseball at all levels has been so marked that even MLB is concerned, and has instituted several outreach programmes." - See more at:

      I found an interesting article addressing exactly that (no mention of outreach programs) and why, which you either missed or dismissed, kind of in the vein of your 'special olympics' remark.

      "I have nodded and uttered mmmhmms on many occasions listening to Rock dissect American race relations. Thus, I was eager to hear his comedic analysis explaining why black people have fallen out of love with America’s pastime. During a segment on HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, Rock expressed his disappointment with Major League Baseball’s cold-shoulder treatment of African Americans. “It’s the only sport where there’s a right way to play the game—and it’s the white way,” Rock drolly asserted. He referred to himself as an endangered species—“a black baseball fan”—and impugned the game as being “old-fashioned and stuck in the past” with the “white hair, white guy announcers [and] cheesy old organ music.” This led to Rock to wonder, “Where’s the Beats by Dre?”

      Rock, moreover, bewailed baseball’s infatuation with tradition, its love affair with reenacting games first played in the mid-19th Century when slavery abound, and its insistence on building antique stadiums that hearkened back to the 1930s and 1940s when black Americans confronted white segregationist violence in its quotidian variety. He also sneered at the MLB’s dullness, its seeming penchant for being anti-fun. While the Caribbean Leagues have transformed baseball games into carnivals and the Korean Leagues have ritualized bat-flipping, Rock taunted MLB’s knack for keeping America’s pastime boring. It is not as if baseball has not tried to adopt more entertainment and swagger. As Rock stated, “Baseball has tried every trick in the book to be hip.” Unfortunately, it has never come off the right way. Rock, for example, ripped MLB for making even President Barack Obama and rapper 50 Cent appear un-cool, citing their awkward delivery of opening-game pitches. These developments, Rock insisted, have driven African Americans—both as fans and players—away.

      Rock’s assessment has legitimacy. As of the 2015 season, only 7.8 percent of MLB players are black—a stark contrast to the all-time high of 19 percent in 1986 when Rock’s own favorite team, the New York Mets, captured the World Series with black baseball stars like Dwight Gooden, Darryl Strawberry, Kevin Mitchell, and Mookie Wilson. Since that time, the percentage of black baseball players has dropped precipitously. The 2014 National League Championship Series is illustrative of the decline in African American Major Leaguers. Neither the San Francisco Giants nor the St. Louis Cardinals featured a black player on their respective teams. As Rock put it, “How can you ever be in St. Louis and see no black people?” Worse, the crowds have been over 90% white—a disparity that might only be resembled by the Ferguson Police Department. The decline in African American baseball interest can even be observed at HBCUs. The predominantly black Stillman College has thirty-six players on its baseball team—all but one is white. Howard University ridded its baseball team while keeping sports like lacrosse and volleyball intact.

      So none of what Rock said was incorrect. He was, however, incomplete. Absent in his breakdown was a deeper insight into MLB’s racial past and its ongoing rebuff of African Americans that repeatedly have turned off and/or away would-be black baseball enthusiasts and participants."

      As far as your MW name and not being up on the latest USSC opinions dealing with sedition, right, I'm ignorant. I just thought your was an attempt by some lad trying to sound tough. But 'a lass', I was wrong. Sorry.

    • "More like Latinos, primarily from Caribbean countries, really."

      Really. I see you're also ignorant about the fact that the Caribbean was a testing ground for Africans on their way to the Americas. Have you ever been to Brazil? African descendants everywhere. Same with Cuba.

You sound like the AWM that pissed and moaned about allowing African Americans to play baseball in the major leagues or football in the NFL. Now they dominate.

      Why do Palestinians have to suffer because of your inferiority complex?

      Sticks and stones dude, call me whatever you need to but you aren't helping your 'cause'.

      You're first point being the massacre in Hebron (where over 400 Jews were saved by their Palestinian neighbors, which you bots NEVER, EVER ACKNOWLEDGE).

      You're fear of being murdered is not rational, unless you are someone who has stolen the treasure of another person and your conscience is driving you a little crazy so you live in constant fear of retribution. Don't paint all Palestinians with the settler brush.

      Why is the entire world held hostage because of zionist fear- and-war-mongering. Are the lives of the other billions of inhabitants on earth of lesser value?

      I'm more afraid of Netanyahooo and all the eastern european thugs who won't hesitate to outmurder him if given the chance, and are counting on diehard zionists to vote them into power or maybe there'll just be a good old-fashion coup. How about Yehuda Glick, now an MK, who wants to blow up Al-Aqsa mosque to build the 3rd temple? You had better believe you won't be dealing with just angry Palestinians then. But hey, with the way things are going, what could possibly go wrong?

      P.S. "God is Great" is the truth, isn't it? How do you feel about "Death to Arabs", "May your villages burn", etc.

    • I think you've gotten to the meat of the matter John O - lest we forget about the israeli predilection for hygiene (not personal so much, just everyone else's).

    • You are absolutely right.

    • Seriously asherpat, you see the end of the occupation and apartheid as 'finishing us'?

      I agree you are obsessed. You've made your survival dependent on the continued murder of Palestinians. I can't believe you're nonchalance about it, but what've you got to fear, right? It's not like the UN or the US is going to stop you.

      At least any time real soon.

    • "OMG, the bloodthirsty regime allowed a whole delegation of the oppressed ones to travel to the Olympics, to represent the non-existent State of Palestine?"

      Yeah, it would have been a public relations nightmare for the bloodthirsty regime if it had instead shot the athletes feet and legs to keep them from competing in the first place. I guess the bloodthirsty regimen can be taught something.

    • "Also, I’m not sure how you could claim most Americans could get this, when 90% of them probably wouldn’t even recognize the term Ashkenazi nor do most of them understand"

      It doesn't matter. The AWM or AWW isn't going to wonder if the white man/woman next to them on the subway is Ashkenazi or not. Who would and who cares? The system was based on the concept that white is right and other hues inferior. That's the way it's been since the about 1619. You can't have grown up in the united states and be this unaware. My great-grandmother was a full-blooded Cherokee woman who was either married or raped but was impregnated by a white man; my grandmother and mother were so concerned about who's who it was unbelievable. And I don't believe they were the exception for their generation (mother was a young adult in the 1940s). They (grandmother and mother) were ashamed of their heritage. I never even knew her name and my mother claimed to have forgotten it. And I know this is a lot of american's history.

      What don't you understand. Do you even live in the u.s.? Did you grow up there? Your question sounds like its coming from someone who doesn't live in the u.s. because most all americans get this. I'm pretty sure you're the only one who doesn't understand, but even if you're not, just speak for yourself please.

    • What are you saying? The 'white supremacy' applies to all things caucasian. It doesn't matter what size your nose is, it's been about skin. Ashkenazi Jews are caucasian.

    • "What “honorary” whiteness? The Ashkenazi ARE white, cloaking Jews in Black victimhood is fundamentally dishonest, an attempt to keep alive the never ending tale of woe of those with considerable power and privilege. "

      Wow that's weird. Ashkenazi are as white as they come. Why pretend otherwise? I have been ashamed of people who, like myself, are 'white', but I can't change that. Ashkenazi Jews have, like any other white person, done extremely well in the united states because of racism. Are they just figuring this out or is it just starting to bother them now?

"

      Is there any other way to end this? I don't think so. Apartheid South Africa was abolished too. There is no other way. (Duh) What the jons, netanyahooos, et all, is conflate the abolishment of the state of Israel with their personal deaths and destruction and that's NOT the goal of BDS. Are the zionists to afraid to share equal footing with Palestinians or anyone else for that matter, that they'd rather kill themselves?

Maybe you've questioned your friends and they tell you that you need to get away for a while, like all israelis who can afford it, get out of the country - go to the states, Europe, India or Thailand (a fav destination). You'll feel better and will come back refreshed and happy to be back and away from all the gentiles and remember what you're fighting for - Jewish supremacism and nationalism, the Jewish homeland - god gave it to us! Bad news though. Lots and lots and lots of people think the Jewish homeland is a hell-hole, an abomination, and are sick to death of what israelis do to their Palestinian neighbors. The veil has been lifted for the world to see, and it's hideous. You know in your heart of hearts that everything that has been done in the creation and expansion of the zionist enterprise has been illegal, immoral and indefensible.

      There is no such thing as a liberal zionist and I think that's what your MO has been. It doesn't work.

I fear the next act in this soap opera of Netanyahoo's is to take Ayoub Sroor's children away from him, like the IOF has done so and for so long under the seemingly endless reign of King Netanyahoo, but 99.9% of the time the children are taken away from their parents in an ambulance, dead or dying. The soldier who high-five'd the child was acting - he was acting like he was a human being and saw the child as a human being.

Funny, as soon as she told it like it was, she was silenced and so ridiculously, the crap about her 'foul' language, as if her words were too offensive for the delicate sensitivities of zionists, who have no problem with 'mowing the lawn' and 'putting the Palestinians on a diet'.

      "Know as Operation Wrath of God, the campaign involved a string of killings across Europe and the Middle East and was dramatised in the films Munich and Sword of Gideon.

      A new documentary about the Munich massacre, Munich 1972 & Beyond, is due to be released next year and details how Mrs Romano and other relative of victims have campaign for greater recognition of the killings.

      The families tried unsuccessfully to convince the International Olympic Committee to mark the 40th anniversary of the killings by holding a moment of silence during the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.

      Relatives said the committee’s refusal of their request was “shameful”.

      No one does subtle like the zionists - 'operation wrath of God'.

      What's really imho shameful is the propagandization and cheap exploitation of Jewish israeli deaths that is the raison d'etre of everything 'israel'.

      "You seem unable to view Israelis as human beings."

      It might seem that way, but its not completely true. 20% of the population of the zionist state are Palestinians after all. Zionists deserve no sympathy because they created this situation. I agree the athletes from the zionist state shouldn't have been murdered, but I hold the zionist state responsible for their deaths, period.

      So when it comes down to it, the zionist state (and it's enablers) is responsible for all the tragedy here, no one else.

    • "And you should have heard the sanctimonious statements by the Israelis talking about how people shouldn’t bring politics to sports(!?) yeah, tell that to the Palestinian footballers who were not allowed to compete."

      And some will never be able to compete -

      Feb. 14, 2014 4:50 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 16, 2014 11:54 A.M.)

      BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Two young Palestinian football players shot by Israeli forces last month have learned that they will never be able to play sports again due to their injuries, according to doctors.

      Doctors at Ramallah governmental hospital said the pair will need six months of treatment before they can evaluate if the two will even be able to ever walk again, at best.

      Jawhar Nasser Jawhar, 19, and Adam Abd al-Raouf Halabiya, 17, were shot by Israeli soldiers as they were walking home from a training session in the Faisal al-Husseini Stadium in al-Ram in the central West Bank on Jan. 31.

      Israeli forces opened fire in their direction without warning as they were walking near a checkpoint.

      Police dogs were subsequently unleashed on them before Israeli soldiers dragged them across the ground and beat them.

      The pair was subsequently were taken to an Israeli hospital in Jerusalem, where they underwent a number of operations to remove the bullets.

      Medical reports said that Jawhar was shot with 11 bullets, seven in his left foot, three in his right, and one in his left hand. Halabiya was shot once in each foot.

      The two were taken to Ramallah governmental hospital before being transferred to King Hussein Medical Center in Amman.

      Chairman of the Palestinian Football Association Jibril al-Rajoub condemned the shooting and said that "Israeli brutality against them emphasizes the occupation's insistence on destroying Palestinian sport."

      I feel proud of all the men, women and children of this movement. God bless you all and continue to strengthen your resolve.

  • Israel lobby panics about 'spoiled' next generation of American leaders turning against it
    • "Goldberg then expressed his own contempt for those young Jewish Americans:

      A lot of very mainstream Israelis ask, Why should we risk our lives by taking positions that could in fact hurt us physically, so that a group of spoiled children at Harvard and Yale and UCLA feel better about the Jewish state? The Jewish state was not created so that 18 year olds at Berkeley feel good."

      What an a-hole. He's contemptuous of young Jewish Americans (or even old ones) that dare put human rights ahead of the zionist state and calls them 'spoiled'. They are educated and articulate and can actually see the forest from the sleaze. The 'Jewish state' was created for Jews only, on land filled with Palestinians, which were murdered, terrorized, raped and driven off their own land and turned into refugees, those attempting to return were arrested or murdered. And it continues.

      Goldberg, these young (and not young) American Jews and non-Jews see the situation in real time, not in the all spin/all the time zone you inhabit.

  • Anti-occupation activists stand with Black Lives Matter as Jewish orgs attack movement over Israel criticisms
    • Thanks Kay24! I've watched a number of times now and my most favorite part is in the first minute or so when the right honorable Mr. Boyd tells the dishonorable israeli thug and his idiot partner in crime that he wants him out of his country. It was just priceless. It was flawless. I hope to see more of the same from every country that has an embassy of apartheid and colonialism in their midst. Kick the bastards out.

    • "I inadvertently rattled your cage, and your reaction is, well, like a bunch of psychos."

      Thank you for making it crystal clear that your only purpose for trolling this site is to distract and disgust. I don't live in a cage and am pretty sure the only people on these pages that actually do live in cages are yourself, the jon's, and the other irregular regulars. You are definitely imprisoned by your ideology.

      What I've 'done to my life', I've done only to my life.

    • Life in israel? You don't live in israel Jack.

      I thought you'd hit rock bottom with the 'firing the Arab' bit, but you're just getting started aren't you? That tells me you're scared [email protected]$%less of Palestinians because of your theft of their land, for starters.

      God only knows what else you've done, or likely watched someone else do to protect you and the other thieves.
