  • Netanyahu's diplomatic charm offensive in Africa is bound to fail
    • Israel has a lot to offer african countries in the agritech sector.world class proven products.this is crucial to helping african countries feed there people instead of getting handouts from aid organizations.

  • Charlottesville is moment of truth for empowered U.S. Zionists (who name their children after Israeli generals)
    • Nathan

      I agree well written piece.one of my all time goodones to go with it

      Do It Again
      Steely Dan

      In the mornin' you go gunnin' for the man who stole your water
      And you fire till he is done in but they catch you at the border
      And the mourners are all singin' as they drag you by your feet
      But the hangman isn't hangin' and they put you on the street

      You go back, Jack, do it again, wheels turinin' 'round and 'round
      You go back, Jack, do it again

      When you know she's no high climber then you find your only friend
      In a room with your two timer, and you're sure you're near the end
      Then you love a little wild one, and she brings you only sorrow
      All the time you know she's smilin'; you'll be on your knees tomorrow

      You go back, Jack, do it again, wheels turinin' 'round and 'round
      You go back, Jack, do it again

      Now you swear and kick and beg us that you're not a gamblin' man;
      Then you find you're back in Vegas with a handle in your hand
      Your black cards can make you money so you hide them when you're able
      In the land of milk and honey you must put them on the table

      You go back, Jack, do it again, wheels turinin' 'round and 'round
      You go back, Jack, do it again

  • Trump support for racists forces Israeli leaders to take sides, but which side will they choose?
    • 23,24,25.

    • I love a good conspiracy.bannon called the neo nazis a bunch of clowns.i think that they are more likely a bunch of canaries in a coal mine.forget about zionist exceptionalism.how about white exceptionalism.

      Most of the protesters on both sides were white.this is a fight about which direction whites should take.fact is american demographics speak for themselves.over 50% of american cities have majority hispanic populations.

      Most interesting of all though is the slogan "jews will not replace us"

      So the alt left or the jews or the Democrats are now opposing the alt right the neo nazis or the Republicans or the christians.

      Sounds like someone is trying to create artifical opposing sides for a greater purpose.the obvious target is the israel supporting christian right.they are being vilified.that is why Netanyahu is pondering the ponder.clever move by bannon .and a dangerous gamble.

      As i said before only the usa and russia can force change by working together

  • Trump response to Charlottesville sugarcoats a rotten morality
  • Chomsky still believes in the old Israel. I did too, once upon a time
    • Ossinev

      The truth and reconciliation commision in south africa was a sucess on some levels because both sides agreed to take responsibility for there crimes.note that the level of violence both sides committed against each other never reached anywhere near the level as that of the i/p conflict.
      Bear in mind that your claims of ethnic cleansing are a lie.the arab population in israel and the west bank and the the diaspora have never stopped expanding and is out growing the jewish population.

      Here is an appropriate definition.

      Gregory Stanton, the founder of Genocide Watch, has criticised the rise of the term and its use for events that he feels should be called "genocide": as "ethnic cleansing" has no legal definition, its media use can detract attention from events that should be prosecuted as genocide.[36][37] Because of widespread acceptance after media influence, it has become a term used legally, but carries no legal repercussions as there is no legal definition.

      In 1992, the German equivalent of ethnic cleansing" (German: Ethnische Säuberung) was named German Un-Word of the Year by the Gesellschaft für deutsche Sprache due to its euphemistic, inappropriate nature.[38]

    • I agree one hundred percent with the ckompsky analysis.times have changed and israel has changed from those were the days my friend.
      But so have the arabs and are they any better than the Israelis.this point seems to be lost on the author.
      If you are going to judge then you must judge both sides equally
      That is the problem.israel withdrew from gaza and what followed surely is not only the fault of the israeli side.
      Zionism and political islam are one and the same beast.
      Bds is war by other means and will be countered in the same manner.
      Time is on israels side as technology begins to change the balance of power.that is what chompsky was referring to when he suggested nuclear power opposing bds.
      How can you possibly believe that the arab side is more moral.the suicide bombing campaigns of the 2000's is no different to the bombing of gaza.
      Judge one judge all

  • After Israel tries to ban Al Jazeera, critics say the country is 'taking its cues from Arab dictators'
    • a deger says..........all jazz

      a few buildings have caught on fire in Doha in qatar lately.and Arab gulf countries have broken off ties with qatar.
      some say qatar is a state sponsor of "fighters" in Syria and Iraq.a spreader of incitement

      qatar is also headquarters of al Jazeera

      and mondoweiss is attacking Israel for banning al jazeera.

  • 'Pummeled' at town hall, Sen. Wyden says Israel Anti Boycott law is needed because 'movement has grown'
    • BDS puts both sides under the spotlight and given the Palestinian track record of murder and corruption I would say that anti BDS legislation draws much needed attention to Palestinian policies.a good example is paying the families of martyrs salaries.
      this had now led to accusations of incitement by western countries who are calling for an end to this practice.
      by shutting down qatari support and money from western donors BDS has become a double edged sword.

      perhaps someone can explain this taylor act.quiet confusing for jubby

  • Zionism is apartheid, and worse
    • Yoni

      There is definitely a lot of happiness going around and the consternation that the anti zionists display at the unhappiness index leads them to conclude that things need to be tweaked in order to return to that state of happiness after cast lead as in your case ,is admirable.

      What i find really interesting is your own pursuit of happiness by seperating your inner psyche from the fray after the fact.
      I went to israel in 1975 on birth right and remember thinking that the situation created there was one of overreach and that eventually a consolidation will be needed to achieve the so called happiness you speak of.

      There is no denying the jewish connection to the land that is israel but in order for zionism to sustain judaism an equilibrium needs to be obtained.some sort of symbolic reality to help preserve and nuture the true essence of judaism which is to serve as an anchor to God and a way of life that uplifts the human condition.

      On passover we have various foods that tell the tale of jewish nationalism and the land that is israel is spoken about.but what symbolic reality would satisfy our quest for equilibrium.
      The land from sea to jordan.
      The land based on the 67 line
      The land in west jerusalem
      The land where the wailing wall stands
      A small stone from the shores of the galilee
      A grain of sand from the negev

      What symbolic reality could the jews put on the passover plate to achieve that happiness.

  • 'I will not be bullied, intimidated threatened over my unshakeable support for Palestinian liberation' -- Linda Sarsour
    • A muslim poster girl for islam marching for womens rights in washington
      A jewish lesbian marching for gay rights with a star of david on her gay rights flag in chicago

      Here we have the famous new word "intersectionality" in all its glory

      Well sort off

      Political islam has bought itself a place at the front of a womens march.at the expense of womens rights.intersectionality indeed.
      These 2 examples illustrate quiet clearly there is no difference between zionism and political islam.and that there is no place for either in western society

  • Ensconced at New York Times, pro-Israel advocate Bari Weiss smears Sarsour as a 'hater'
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/27/opinion/im-glad-the-dyke-march-banned-jewish-stars.html

      This article written by bari weiss has an interesting warning at the end.......

      "Jews on the left, particularly in recent years, have attempted to square this growing discomfort by becoming more anti-Israel. But if history has taught the Jews anything it’s that this kind of contortion never ends well."

      The tale of the 2 weiss's perfectly sums up the challenges jews face in there relationship with judaism and israel.bear in mind that both come from different media places.bari from tablet magazine and phil from the kushner owned ny observer.draw your own conclusions.

  • As Israeli soldiers crushed Gaza, world Jewry united, and sent Ben & Jerry's ice cream to the front
  • 'Transferring' Palestinian citizens of Israel to a Palestinian state goes from outrage to Netanyahu policy
    • Land swap 1.
      gaza for parts of westbank including population swaps.gas ,electricity,and water supply to westbank included in deal
      Land swap 2
      Old city of jerusalem including temple mount and wall designated international relegious state accessible to all.like vatican
      Land swap 3.
      Outside that area west jerusalem capital of israel,east jerusalem capital of palestinian state.
      Non compliance will lead to total destruction of jerusalem by earthquake in the first quarter the 2018

  • Israel is losing the battle for public opinion thanks to honest journalists, and platforms like Mondoweiss
    • Ecchi says "all it takes is pen and paper"

      The pen is mightier than the sword so right there you have a winner.lets face facts though.take the latest temple mount protests.
      Some bright spark (probably) iranian has decided to stir up a few youths in israel for the sake of there strategic interests elsewhere such as the campaign in the qualmoun moutains.
      Kill a few druze policemen,murder a jewish family,shoot a few palestinian youths and scores are settled for the attack in iran last month at the shrine and parliament.

      Luckily some people are not fooled.political islam requires the sacrifice of common man to achieve its goals.
      The problem is that the palestinian people have suffered the most and day will come that whatever victory the masters of war hope to achieve in jerusalem it will be a hollow one.history certainly proved that that is the case.
      The next palestinian generation should forget about al aqsa this and aqsa that and take a lesson from what has happened in egypt since the arab spring.
      It time for the Palestinian younger generation to throw the ramallah puppets out of office and take there destiny in there own hands and build a nation.
      Not a state but a nation.
