  • Who can save Israel now? Labor leader emulates Netanyahu
    • “We will not share a government with the Joint List, period,” Gabbay said at a political forum in Be’er Sheva. “Let that be clear.”…

      "Gabbay didn’t reject the possibility of being part of a governing coalition alongside Kulanu, Yisrael Beiteinu and the ultra-Orthodox parties…"

      Who can save 'israel' now? Should israel be saved is the bigger question IMHO and I say absolutely not.

  • Israeli women march to 'wage peace' but refuse to challenge the occupation
    • I understand that intellectually; deprive the troll of oxygen and he'll wither and die, but it's taking too long Ossinev!

    • I myself am not concerned at all with the fate of the 650K colonialist carpetbaggers and thieves. They have the big guns on their side after all. However, the care and upkeep of these hillbillies is a strain and a drain on the rest of us. I'd sure hate to ponder what could happen if the rest of the israelis started realizing they're getting royally screwed. Oh well, that'll never happen as most all israelis don't give a damn anyway, which is why it's so important for the rest of the world to and for places like Mondoweiss to exist.

    • C'mon and defend the zionists on this one JeffBee - anyone?

    • JeffBeeeeeee: You write as if you're problem solving here and just about have your final solution to the question of the palestinian problem in your head, but want to bounce it off the actual writer of this piece, who, in the entire article he wrote DID NOT ASK FOR YOUR HELP. You speak with the arrogance and authority of any ugly american a$$hole directing the movers on where to put the boxes, but can't actually help with the heavy lifting because his lumbago and hemorrhoids are acting up again. Such is the mind of a 'liberal zionist'. You and your compadres in the am yisrael chai club have yet to be able to defend your support of the zionist enterprise. You talk circles around everyone and squat here and do nothing but cheerlead apartheid. You have not ever been able to explain how in the fuck you continue to support the occupation. Not once. I for one am sick and tired of seeing your bullshit. You are disgusting and absolutely full of shit. You jump on the opportunity to explain what israeli women need to do is start fucking arab men to erase arab identity then everthing will be right as rain! I'm sick of your damn opinions. You're too lazy to write a blog of your own so you attach yourself here like the bloodsucking leech you are and try to take over every article, post copiously and with one hand too. You post everywhere but I've rarely seen your script on Kate's pages. That's where you get silent. You and the rest of the zionist cretins. Her reporting makes you very quiet for some reason. You can't defend what she reports on can you? Children being murdered. Students denied the right to leave to attend the university they've been accepted to because the israelis have a lot of fun playing god at the checkpoints. Children being arrested, beaten by police and then for extra fun, dropped off in a settlement so those brownshirts can get their rocks off torturing them. C'mon JeffBee - justify that! Because if you just scratch the surface here that's what you'll find. Justify it JeffBee - you can do it, I just know you can.

      This was hysterical: "The Gazans would love to have the problems the West Bankers have. The West Bankers would love to have the problems the Israeli-Arabs have. The Israeli-Arabs would love to have the problems the Mizrahi have." What about your problems? They're YUGE because the problem you and people like you have are what keeps this shit going 24/7. Now justify it. Explain how you can continue to support and defend the israeli government and zionism.Please?

    • "If only the Arabs could somehow accept this as ‘peace’, then all would be well…"

      The women's march was a joke and no offense to your mother , but this is too 'lite' of a movement to be anything more than a joint non-aerobic activity between mostly israeli women and some palestinian women - looks good but doesn't really do anything.

  • Danish pension fund blacklists four Israeli companies linked to settlements

      To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee taken off Mississippi school ... › Arts › Books › Harper Lee

      Official: ‘some language in the book makes people uncomfortable’
      Story of racism in the US south has been removed from schools before

      "Published in 1960, Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winner deals with racial inequality in a small Alabama town, in the aftermath of an alleged rape of a white woman for which a black man is tried. It has sold more than 40m copies and it was made into a film in 1962, winning three Oscars.

      An email to the Sun Herald from a concerned reader referred to the book’s use of the word “nigger” when it said the school board’s decision was made “mid-lesson plan”. “The students will not be allowed to finish the reading of To Kill A Mockingbird,” the email said “… due to the use of the ‘N’ word.”

      The american south has been in the process of rewriting history and whitewashing it all the way. It's no wonder the alt-right is so in love with the zionist enterprise.

  • Wichita teacher sues Kansas for denying her work because she boycotts Israel
    • @Dan Walsh

      "This is a Hebrew watermelon!" and "Every watermelon and melon from a Hebrew farm!" Yes, but do these melons keep Shabbat?

    • "What’s wrong with me is I don’t believe Esther Koontz’s version of events. I do not believe that Esther Koontz was ever offered a job or contract by the state of Kansas. Her story smells extremely implausible. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think she’s lying but I do think she’s misunderstanding."

      Mansplaining, zionizing and straight up baloney Jeffy. I can't even begin to describe what anything you write smells like - there aren't enough words, although I used to have to bus through an industrial area in St. Paul that held the combined heady aromas of a slaughterhouse and a bleach factory, resulting in headaches for the first couple hours of each work day. That's pretty darn close.

      You wisely or like a chickenshit chose not to tango any further with JWalters above, instead choosing a new dance partner. You are a coward, a fraud, an obnoxious jerk off all trades, master of none. In your own words describing someone else, "you have the ability to control yourself but enjoy losing yourself in strings of badly thought out emoting" and another jewel "I’m a strong anti-racist. I’d like the Palestinians to be full Israelis as you know. They are welcome to be part of the state of Israel. They are not welcome to create an Arab Muslim state in its place. That’s not racism." That's you all over.

      WTF is a 'strong' antiracist JeffBee. You're either antiracist or a racist. There are no 'degrees' of antiracism really, are there? Just something you made up to make nothing sound like something? Like 'liberal' zionist?

  • 'The Siege' gets US premiere at last, in blow to 'Israeli propaganda machine'
  • In Ireland, a Palestinian is understood
    • What's really 'strange' DaBakr is how offended you are by anyone's solidarity with palestinians and not israeli jews.

      Labeling "a knee jerk reaction" is a zionist's way of minimizing the comraderie and support for palestinian people by the Irish you apparently find so damn annoying. Hey, it's a bitch being on the wrong side of history but that's something you can easily come to grips with and you must be trying because you're here 24/7. I would say that many many Irish have a long held and unshakeable affiliation for oppressed people and let's be perfectly clear, that isn't israeli jews, but the palestinians they subjugate, torture and kill. "They are lovable, hardy, support....blah, blah, blah..". How condescendingly colonial of you.

    • The tried and true method when JeffBee has a whole lot of nuthin' to say that's over and above his usual nuthin'. Blame censorship? Have you even read my posts to you?

  • On my sixth visit, I've never seen Gaza so devastated
    • jon s - the only position you've ever had, as illustrated by Mooser.

      Maybe you should connect the dots: with Hamas rule, that’s what they’ll get. No development, no hope.

      Dear jon -
      I have. Here's the dots: Hamas won the election and the zionist state has been trying to bomb them into submission ever since, about every 2-3 years actually. If they had no hope, they'd give up. In the meantime, the zionist state has been racking up the war crimes for the ICC because the world sees what's going on. You go ahead and keep defending the indefensible though.

    • "And Gaza is run by Hamas, not “by Jews”."

      No. That may be the lie you tell yourself to get to sleep, but in reality, Hamas was democratically elected and israeli has protested, in some of the strongest, deadliest ways possible. Hamas has no control of coming and going, has no control over its coastline, has no control of what comes in, has no airport, has no factories (bombed by israel), has no infrastructure (bombed by israel) and no electricity (that's right).

    • "it’s never a good idea to have a desperate and starving neighbor next door".

      Why? Because you might actually have to help them? You don't want them to be prosperous; what if they win?

    • All countries have failed to provide safety for their citizens who are women and children. Or people of color. The idea of zionism was purely a racist supremacist one, to steal the land from the people living on it and claim it as the jewish homeland. Now I've got to vomit because posts like yours are incredibly nauseating.

  • Weiss, Ben-Youssef will be among speakers at Oct 21 conference in Minneapolis
  • The 13 questions on life in Palestine that non-Palestinians always ask me
  • It's easier to be a vegan than an anti-Zionist in Israel
    • A neighbor had asked me how things were on my job and I said the people left alot to be desired. He said israelis care more about animals than human beings. Maybe that means israelis identify with animals more and see themselves as animals. They don't seem able to identify with or want to inculcate more human/humane qualities because they are seen as weaknesses?

  • Jenin Freedom Theatre’s ‘Siege’ preps for New York tour next week
  • Occupation, in the details
    • Dr. Ashrawi is a powerful voice and I hope she continues to use it to press europeans to assume the role of negotiator and supporter of palestinian cause. It's obvious the united states has never been an honest negotiator, never punishing israel for not agreeing to terms it had agreed to and breaking promises.

      These pictures are as heartbreaking as I knew they would be. Thanks Katie.

  • As battle rages in UK Labour Party, Moshe Machover expelled after asserting 'Anti-Zionism does not equal anti-Semitism'
    • Are you talking about JeffB and cohorts on Mondoweiss? I was asking myself the same dern thang.

    • "I’m not making stuff up. There are 650k Jews who live on the other side of the green line. When you call for the settlements to be disbanded you are calling for a massive forced migration. If you find the policy offensive, don’t advocate for it."

      "I'm not making stuff up". Aww, that's so cute, like when tRUMP ends each whopper with "Believe me".

      It'd just be so embarassing if all your old neighbors and friends moved back to the hood, and went back to planting seeds in your yard.

    • It's incredible JeffB can type such volumes one-handed.

    • @JeffB

      "How Israel was founded 70 years ago is not something current day Israelis can do anything about."

      Oh you're so wrong. For starters, eliminate the following: Yom HatzMaut, Yom HaZikaron, Yom HaAliyah and Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day). Followed by every 'religious' holiday on the books.

    • The truth hurts doesn't it JeffB? There's only one question JeffB and its this: Based on all the reporting on Mondoweiss, +972, Btselem, Ilan Pappe and many others, how can you, or anyone, continue to support zionism and the jewish 'state'?

  • Media criticism of gun lobby after Vegas massacre would make the Israel lobby blush
    • "I/P is given far more press than it deserves. Any American interested has a wealth of information available to them. They just have used this information to draw conclusions you disagree with."

      First off, bullshit. Secondly, JeffB, I'm glad you've finally dropped the 'liberal' from your self-description. Must have been incredibly burdensome carrying that pillowcase of goose down on your shoulders.

    • JeffB "The American people have informed consent. They agree with Israel. Sorry."

      The american people are lied to about 'israel' 24/7.

      Informed consent means you are informed and then give consent. Informed is the key word here. And it is absent from american discourse because any appearance of criticism of the parasitic state of israel is shut down. It's stupid of you to even attempt to argue this jeff and you do so like a child - i.e., because I said so, that's why"!

      FFS they won't even show israelis being themselves on american television (Empire Files: Israelis Speak Candidly to Abby Martin About Palestinians). You can't have informed consent when information is continually blocked, misrepresented and vilified as nothing but antisemitism.

    • @Steverino

      If he has a case of a pro-Israel gut bacteria, he needs to seek medical attention immediately. It's worse than C difficile and requires a long period of treatment. It's a dangerous infectious disease that, oddly, enough effects people who concurrently have no spine or moral compass.

    • The demise of the state of israel would be a restorative balm to the world. It's done more harm than anything else. Before you get it all twisted, I'm not talking about the demise of israelis, the demise of the government of israel and a jewish state, replaced by a democratic state for all, no rabbinute, no caliphate. One set of laws for all people. Marry who you want. Public schools that are actually public schools, no 'religion' at all. Practice your 'religion' in your home or place of worship. You know, something normal.

    • "Probably what you are trying to say is that the State of Israel and the Palestinian Authority be disestablished – and in their stead a new, single state be founded."

      What a presumption. I said what I wanted to say. I don't need nor want your help.

    • "The Palestinians oppose the founding of Israel, so the way for establishing peace is not in granting them citizenship in a state that in their view should not have been born in the first place".

      Citizenship in the state of israel, the 'jewish' state? Uh, I oppose that and I'm not even Palestinian. I've said before that the only solution is one state for all, equal rights for all, one law for everyone and a secular democratic government. Whatever this place will be called, it won't be called a jewish state.

    • "Clear"?

      As mud, thanks.

    • Mooser - "Shorter “Jeff b”: ‘Help! I’m getting desperate! ‘"

      Jeffbee - desperato - why don't you come to your senses?

    • "Relative to its neighbors Israel is vastly stronger today."

      With the u.s. supplying technology and weapons of major and minor destruction, how could it not be? israel gets all the latest toys and tests them on Gaza - et voila! "battle tested". All that muscle and no one to bomb! With that much fire power, old blue hair must have one helluva an itchy trigger finger. Anything to take the attention of his little woman's legal woes, not to mention his own festering sore of an investigation. blue hair and the orange is the new president have so much in common. We're all doomed.

    • Ouch - got me on that.

    • "A rabbinic court doesn’t mean as much as you might think. His level of authority is about what a lead pastor in a midsized church."

      Unless you're talking about a midsized church roughly the size of israel that is. Pffffttt.

    • I'm sorry, what's your point?

    • Quit pretending that the israeli government is a legitimate government and democratic. It isn't and never hasn't been. It is discussed by 'die hard mono weissers' (?) realistically, no fantasy involved. You die hard zio weinies like to pretend israel is anything other than an apartheid state, run by a narcissistic idiot with delusions of grandeur. Reality is something you know nothing about.

    • Israel is the aggressor and there is no denying that, no matter how much schmaltz you add. If the borderless state of israel had chosen years ago to give all palestinians citizenship with equal protection under the law and equal rights, and had never commited itself so stupidly to keeping a population of millions in an open air prison, perpetrate atrocities from the innumerable war crimes to the daily horrors inflicted upon the native population, there would be peace. Alas, the insatiable appetite of the zionist enterprise wants land, wealth and more, more, more. The last thing they want is peace.

  • Israeli soldier-medic-killer 'endured a lot' -  so short sentence is cut by four months
  • Israelis lock down Palestinian village in West Bank after deadly attack on settlement
    • I continue to be amazed at the care palestinian resistance takes to focus their targets to military and settlements, unlike the zionist army and police, who see every palestinian, from infant to the infirm, as a target. End the occupation and the violence against the native population and see peace in the region. #BDS

  • Ten days of awe: standing with whom?

      You're a provocateur. Like most israelis - angering and provoking people to do wrong and curse God. I see it all the time and everywhere - provocation and incitement. Watch yourself.

      And again WTF is it with 'we'? What a morooon!

    • I think Days of Ewww is much more appropriate.

      "all of us would do well to take the time for reflection, contemplation, soul-searching and repentance."

      To what end jon s? What's the purpose of this phony bullshit here of all places? No real reflection, contemplation, soul-searching or repentance at all, just a light dust and vacuum of the soul, nothing too heavy or with any real purpose; it is nothing but mockery. If members of the zionist enterprise, here and the rest of the world actually did the work demanded on them on yom kippur, they'd kill themselves.

    • Why bashing Morgan Freeman, of all people, is suddenly the rage in ...

      "Morgan Freeman’s honey-kissed baritone has narrated dozens of documentaries and public announcements in the Oscar-winner’s long Hollywood career.

      But the 80-year-old star’s tenure in the business probably failed to prep him for the Russian reaction that greeted a two-minute online video he recorded recently for a group hoping to keep alive concerns over Kremlin meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

      Freeman is being portrayed as a tool of the U.S. establishment trying to bring down Trump, and as a man suffering from a “Messianic complex” from movie roles playing God and the president of the United States.

      A “#StopMorganLie” hashtag is circulating aimed at discrediting the actor."

It was disgusting, as is her usual. Except that time she didn't do it. She must have gotten a zionist tune-up for that one.

    • I no longer have any inclination to watch Rachel Maddow. She clearly portrays israel as good guys and palestinians as terrorists, overtly or covertly. She has no credibility or honor.

      Her lineup was a half-assed job.

      I think about Hugo Chavez' remarks about Bush and chuckle when I recall the laughs he got from it.

      The world is laughing much harder though, I imagine, laughter and tears, over the inane, incoherent and unintelligent comments made by tRUMP and the bombastic, arrogant remarks of netanyahoo.

      "U.S. assistance to foreign armed forces comes from two different budgets; therefore, two separate versions of the Leahy amendment have been enacted into law. One covers assistance to foreign forces funded through the State Department foreign assistance budget, and another covers assistance funded out of the Department of Defense budget.

      The law covering State Department funded aid is found in Section 620M of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 (as amended most recently in January 2014).[7] It states:

      “ (a) IN GENERAL. – No assistance shall be furnished under this Act or the Arms Export Control Act to any unit of the security forces of a foreign country if the Secretary of State has credible information that such unit has committed a gross violation of human rights.
      (b) EXCEPTION. –The prohibition in subsection (a) shall not apply if the Secretary determines and reports to the Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate, the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives, and the Committees on Appropriations that the government of such country is taking effective steps to bring the responsible members of the security forces unit to justice.

      (c) DUTY TO INFORM. – In the event that funds are withheld from any unit pursuant to this section, the Secretary of State shall promptly inform the foreign government of the basis for such action and shall, to the maximum extent practicable, assist the foreign government in taking effective measures to bring the responsible members of the security forces to justice.

      (d) CREDIBLE INFORMATION. The Secretary shall establish, and periodically update, procedures to

      (1) ensure that for each country the Department of State has a current list of all security force units receiving United States training, equipment, or other types of assistance;

      (2) facilitate receipt by the Department of State and United States embassies of information from individuals and organizations outside the United States Government about gross violations of human rights by security force units;

      (3) routinely request and obtain such information from the Department of Defense, the Central Intelligence Agency, and other United States Government sources;

      (4) ensure that such information is evaluated and preserved;

      (5) ensure that when an individual is designated to receive United States training, equipment, or other types of assistance the individual's unit is vetted as well as the individual.

      (6) seek to identify the unit involved when credible information of a gross violation exists but the identity of the unit is lacking; and

      (7) make publicly available, to the maximum extent practicable, the identity of those units for which no assistance shall be furnished pursuant to subsection (a).

      The Department of Defense Appropriations version of the Leahy Law (10 U.S. Code § 2249e) reads:[8]

      “ (a) In General.—
      (1) Of the amounts made available to the Department of Defense, none may be used for any training, equipment, or other assistance for a unit of a foreign security force if the Secretary of Defense has credible information that the unit has committed a gross violation of human rights.

      (2) The Secretary of Defense shall, in consultation with the Secretary of State, ensure that prior to a decision to provide any training, equipment, or other assistance to a unit of a foreign security force full consideration is given to any credible information available to the Department of State relating to human rights violations by such unit.

      (b) Exception.—The prohibition in subsection (a)(1) shall not apply if the Secretary of Defense, after consultation with the Secretary of State, determines that the government of such country has taken all necessary corrective steps, or if the equipment or other assistance is necessary to assist in disaster relief operations or other humanitarian or national security emergencies.

      (c) Waiver.—The Secretary of Defense, after consultation with the Secretary of State, may waive the prohibition in subsection (a)(1) if the Secretary determines that the waiver is required by extraordinary circumstances.

    • Hey Dick -
      Feel free to fly to Iran and attempt a one man destabilization project. Please! What could possibly go wrong? You'll be a hit with your smooth skin and high voice, or am I confusing you with Jarhead Kushner?

      Amerikkka is always at the ready to fight a proxy war for its BFF. Amerikkkan blood isn't precious at all - only worth 2 zionist toenails according to the latest exchange rates.

    • "And when they won’t talk to him anymore, for obvious reasons, he comes here and thinks, for some reason (like not knowing much else) he’s in a late night Yeshiva dorm-room bullshit session." Bravo Mooser. Shlogn di nogl aoyf di kop.

    • "Nathan: “Anyway, the Jews as a whole were not expelled from Palestine by the Turks (although some were). Eventually, they even succeeded in establishing a state of their own.”

      More magical thinking in florid display.

    • "JeffB" will argue any point, period. Just for the sake of arguing. Except he's not arguing at all, he's only saying you're wrong, it's this way because I say so. It's like talking to someone whose only purpose is to insist everyone is wrong, because he is the authority of everything and he has a magical wah-wah wand. Like a bratty child, who has always had his way because his parents didn't care enough about him or the rest of the world to bother to teach him to share, to respect others, to have empathy, to be charitable, to listen to reason and to respect other's boundaries. These are lessons that start in the home. I think "JeffB", like the contemptible Michael Oren, must have routinely had the shit kicked out of him, but if not, should have.

    • “I was happy to hear that you are devoting the discussions at the conference to the subject of the future of the Land of Israel. Up until not so many years ago, this country was deserted and abandoned, but since we returned to Zion, after generations of exile, the Land of Israel is flourishing.”

      This trope is so old and worn out, like booboos daddy.

      DaBarke - please get yourself some rugged boots and start walking to the next democratic state. I will drop dread from laughter.

      Of course you won't do it but I like the idea. Your zionist pals will get there's someday. But I'm sure the rest of us will too, because the zionazis aren't going to stop until millions upon millions of lives are lost in the process. When there are no palestinians in the holey land left to kill, the zionazis will quickly turn on each other. They eat their young.

    • Mooser

      “Marnie”, could I be forgiven if I felt that “Jeff B’s” Zionism (I go no further) is nothing more than an over-compensation for his terrible sense of personal inadequacy?"

      You bet! I suspect overcompensation for obvious inadequacies is the motivation for his and others squatting here and nothing else.

    • JeffB -
      When you're cornered, you do what most cowards do and quickly revert to whataboutery. Jeff Sessions - the Keebler Elf version of Ayelet snake eyes Shaked? Shaked wants to completely castrate any power that the israeli supreme court has! She doesn't give a rattler's ass about individual rights - it's zionism 100% or nothing. And you steadily support it everything it does and if you don't outright support the zionist experiment and all the horrors it has unleashed on the indigenous people of palestine - real living people mind you - not people from a so-called holy book that's just a book, like so many that have caused the true believers to lose their way and their minds, to become exactly what they purport to be against, etc., if you don't support what shaked and all her bloody brethren do on a daily basis, you do the next worst thing - you excuse all of it with a wave of your magical whataboutery wand or your wah-wah. Grow a f'cking spine would ya?

  • Soros and the Illuminati! Netanyahu Jr. spreads anti-Semitic cartoon
    • Exactly! When israelis act like thugs, are racist bigots and arch criminals, it's because they are 'sick'. A Palestinian would be called an animal, a terrorist, a murderer raised on hate instead of the so-called love israeli brats are raised on. Like Yair - product of a loving family? Barf. Is Yair sick - no. He is exactly what he was raised to be. JHC Yonah, quit being an enabler FFS!!!!!!!

    • This family is so tRUMPish. Spoiled little SOB. Yair AKA Don tRUMP Jr. He has the seal of approval from former Grand Dragon/Cyclops/Wizard/Whatever david duke and daily stormer. Kudos dickhead!

    • Your post was exactly what I was talking about. How can you be that dense?

    • My fear is that the resat of the world would look at this video and think, what's the problem? They're happy, they're celebrating! Like someone looking at a person defined as living in poverty and that person is obese. Not hard to understand the obesity when most people knows if you don't have access to a grocery store, fresh fruit and veg, etc., that the cheap garbage is what you have to buy and it makes you fat, not healthy or nourished. When I watched this the first time I forgot I was looking at Gaza and that's not good. Maybe that's just me though and maybe most people would look at the Khaldi twins and see beyond their radiant smiles...........

    • Haven't the crimes of the zionist occupation piled up high enough to reach heaven, if there is such a place, it's habitation to angels and the almighty?

    • This video wasn't made for my pleasure per se, but it was such a privilege to watch and be invited into the lives of these beautiful young women for a few minutes. I look forward to seeing more of the Khaldi Twins! Thank you so much - brightened my day!! Shukran and Eid Mubarak!
