  • Israeli Labor sells out African refugees, as 'infiltrators'
    • "It’s impressive how a religious conversion can transform..."

      Well, there also some gene-splicing. That's what the little knives are for.

  • Lockheed Martin: A global giant in supporting of Israeli war crimes
    • "In April of 2014, shortly before the onset of Operation Protective Edge, Lockheed Martin expanded its Tel Aviv office and opened an office in Be’er Sheva, Israel. They announced that the opening of the office was to demonstrate Lockheed Martin’s commitment to supporting the Israeli Defense Force and their “Move to the South” campaign"

      In Beer Sheva? "Jon s" must have protested vociferously.

  • Israel to deport 40,000 African asylum seekers 'without their consent,' many to Rwanda
  • Pro-Israel groups' campaign against Linda Sarsour targets another progressive institution -- New School
    • "Where is the break away Jewish movement of Rabbis that reject Zionism?"

      Things being as they are,( in the US, anyway,) it may be easier and more practical to reject Zionism by breaking away from Judaism.
      That may speak to what Judaism offers Jewish people as a religion besides Zionism.

  • 'Struggle for basic rights within binational state has begun and we will win' --Shulman in 'NYRB'
    • "amigo, I’m a “peacenik”, as you put it because I’ve been active in..."

      ...avoiding any active IDF duty. Occupation service is for sabras. And they better like it!

    • "You can take a walk over to the nearest library, and there you’ll find a book entitled “The History of the Jewish People”.

      I found it, and checked it out! From the moment I picked up that book up until I laid it down I was convulsed with tears. Someday I intend on reading it.

    • Hey "Nathan", did you ever hear the story of six blind men and the irrelevant?

    • “My plan which is not about to be implemented is the 2 state solution as envisioned by the Geneva Initiative”

      Yeah. For lack of Palestinian support, no doubt.

    • "But if you look through my archives, you will see that I have consistently argued that, if “self-determination” makes any sense at all, it can only be the right of all the legitimate residents of a territory." "RoHa"

      Might we say that 'legitimate residence' is a prerequisite of 'self-determination'?
      Usually, in determining legitimate residence, the claims of people who were, you know, actually living there, trump those of (ROTFLMSJAO) "DNA evidence".

      (And no, you don't lose your legitimate residence when you are chased out by the Zionists, either)

    • "Sure Jon S, which is why you are giving up your illegal squat in Beersheba..."

      Dear old Beersheba

    • "Phil , do you know of any Palestinians who support the concept of a binational state? Such support would be a significant development."

      Well lookit this, already wouldja? "Jon s" is suddenly concerned with what Palestinians "support a concept of"? That never seemed to bother Israelis before.

      I'll tell you what, "Jon s", if those Palestinians (who never did know what was best for themselves) don't want a "bi-national state" in which they have full rights, well, you Israelis just go ahead and impose it on them!

    • -" if i were trying to predict the future"

      "yonah", sweetheart, you can't even predict the present. And your predictions about the past are always way off, too.

    • "My plan which is not about to be implemented is the 2 state solution as envisioned by the Geneva Initiative"

      "Not about to be implemented"? What happened? I thought you were only a few signatures and rubber-stamps away initiating the Geneva Initiative? Did you miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity?

    • "I’m quite surprised that no one wishes to protest the use of the term “a single binational state”. "

      Why bother? There's no need. Isn't it obvious that no matter what solutions are offered, the Zionists will screw it up? Why bother making a fuss about what Israel cannot do?

    • " In both cases, the Jews are a nation entitled to some form of statehood. That is the essence of the Zionist ideology.

      "Entitled"? Yeah, that and $3.60 will buy you a latte at any Starbucks.

      Saying "Jews are nation entitled to some form of statehood" is something Western Zionists say to poor Eastern European Jews who don't know any better. Playing on their troubles, and taking advantage of their ignorance. It's shameful.

      Sure, "Nathan", there's some big United Nations Entitling Office which assigns people the countries their DNA deserve. Tell me another one.

      And besides, why should I, a Jew, go to Israel to be bossed around by Orthodox Jews, when I can stay in the US and be bossed around by everybody? I like diversity.

    • "As far as the rights of those who fled or were chased away, one might imagine that first comes suffrage for those present, whose votes would then change the policy of the polity towards those who are located elsewhere."

      And there goes the Jewish Majority in Palestine. It's good that Jewish majority isn't a crucial thing for Zionism or Zionists, so they should be glad to let it go.

    • " a lecture some time ago on water resources in israel and the picture was bleak"

      Nonsense. All they gotta do is smite a stone with the right stick.

    • "Play your rhetorical games by yourself and with yourself if you are incapable of minimum etiquette."

      You gonna ban him for 'ungentlemanly commenting', "yonah"?

    • " Do not refer to Jeff as Jeffy Boy and then pretend to be a gentleman."

      Really? And how should he refer to "The Reverend Rabbi Dr. Prof. His Honour Sir Jeff B, PHD DVD ADD GCMG"? His full title takes so long to write.

  • Top Israeli official admits that boycotting just the settlements is meaningless
  • The Clinton scandals entailed violent threats against people who knew about his sex life
    • "The point is, Clinton managed to remain in office for the entirety of his two lengthy terms"

      "Bont", there were a lot of indications at the time. Clinton's terms certainly seemed awfully potracted, but what was his angle? How did he do it? Well, I just figured it out. You know "Daylight Savings Time"? Well, they need to look in the warehouse where the light of day is stored. Do an inventory.

    • "Men in general are vulnerable to lapses in judgement and morality when it comes to women, simply due to their physical advantage of them."

      So true. We are ever in the thrall of a pair of saucy blue eyes, and only too ready to be ruled by a well-turned ankle.

    • "not over yet.still one place to go."

      No, that's alright, I'll send out for pizza.

    • " A sex crazed lunatic with nonexistent respect for basic morality, managed to hold the highest office of the land for more than a decade."

      Not the usual criticisms of FD Roosevelt, but who am I to contest the prevailing narrative?

  • Israel to move checkpoint deeper into West Bank, cutting off Palestinian access to spring
    • Oh boy! Are we at the circus? There's a parade of irrelevants!

    • "would you decide that its better to return land even if some of the people who get land don’t deserve it?"

      As I'm sure you know "Jack Green" the entire human genome has been mapped. Would you please tell us which particular sequences, on which strands, indicate land rights in Palestine? (let alone Jewishness)
      If you Google "DNA land rights in Palestine" you may even get a convenient chart. With a plat map, and a telephone app.

    • "What if it were impossible to say.../... land don’t deserve it?"

      Shorter "Jack Green": 'What's the use of being Jewish if you don't get anything out of it? And besides you owe us!'

    • “It’s like adoption. If a couple adopts a child that child will have the same inheritance rights as the couple’s children who were not adopted.”

      Exactly! In much the same way that a Jewish Zionist family cannot disinherit their child for being anti-Zionist, even if the family is certain their assets will be used for anti-Zionist purposes.

    • "After thousands.../... use the land.”

      Oh BTW, when did "the Jewish people" vote to turn over their rights in the land to the Zionists? Not to mention their rights to Judaism.

    • "My question to you is, which group retain title to real estate and which do your ancestors belong to?"

      Hold on. In order to retain the rights, they would need to breed only within that particular group of Jews.
      At any rate, the deserving recipients should be easy to spot.

  • Liberal Israeli leaders were contemplating genocide in Gaza already in 1967
    • " the “exterminated” population doubles or triples and its income improves most when under the “genocidal” regime!"

      So the Zionists hold out the 'hope' and the 'promise' of a genocide they can't accomplish (except in announced intent, and that's what matters) to encourage the Jewish population. That ought to work as a long term-solution.

  • Bret Stephens equates anti-Zionists with white nationalists in the 'New York Times'
    • " Geneticists are quite accepting of the evidence of ancestral descent imprinted in DNA."

      And "geneticists" are the ones who determine who gets what land, and how they act on it?

    • "Eljay, ask Phil if he is a Jew based on belief or by descent. Maybe you’ll take his word for it." "Jerry Hirsch"

      Gee, I've noticed that those two things are often present together, in varying proportions and relations. Very surprised you didn't know that, "Jerry".
      Most of the time "descent" means the circumstances you're born into.I don't think Phil spent hours peering at his DNA looking for the answers.

    • ." So I very much qualify as a Bulgarian Jew. " "Catalan"

      I agree. Your conversion to the Universalist-Unitarian Church, and your disparagement of Jewish "priests" can be dismissed as a youthful indiscretion.

    • " the various Jewish groups"

      "Various Jewish groups"? How many, exactly? Considering the diversity of the "various Jewish groups" we know about, you just opened Judaism to the entire world in that "various" and "groups".
      BTW, for all this blather about DNA you have never told us exactly how many Jews there are and who they are. Certainly DNA can do that, can't it?

      "Jerry", you do understand that all of this 'genetic linkage' is not like the "DNA evidence" used in criminal trials and paternity disputes, don't you?

    • "Citations? Examples? Hyperlinks? Evidence?"

      "Hophmi" gives us all the evidence here, in his diagnosis of Phil's Jewish self-hatred,, which gave us a chance to understand Phil's affliction, even tho we must condemn it.

    • "Mooser, the evidence proving the Jew’s 3,000 year habitation of the land of Israel has been thoroughly documented."

      A land inhabited by large grey creatures carrying trunks, a herd of irrelevance.

    • " Jewish identity is based on ancestry, not religious beliefs."

      "Proof of the Jew’s middle eastern ancestry is contained in their DNA."

      "John, your understanding of Arab and Jewish descent is flawed. Both claim the same Father, Abraham."

      "As a distinct ethnic group, the Jews have the right to self determination. To seek self rule in their native lands."

    • "There have been plenty of anti-Zionist op-eds in the NY Times in the past three years."

      But in spite of Google and the NYT's site, none of the names or dates of those "anti-Zionist op-eds" (I.I.T.L.) occur to you?
      Certainly one of our ever-watchful Zionist organizations would have a list of them.

    • "Says the guy who lives in the country of Australia, who successfully perpetrated..."

      "RoHa" has never, ever claimed there was some kind of "right" to commit that genocide.

      You, "Hophmi", seem very concerned that Israel should get all the genocide it has a "right" to.

    • "Phil, what is your opinion?Do the Jews have a right to their own state in their indigenous homeland?" "Jerry Hirsch"

      Uh-oh! Mondo is toast. "Jerry Hirsch" knows the power, the irresistible power, the validity and the power inherent in the words "indigenous homeland". Once you get them singing "This lovely land is mine", you've got 'em.

    • "...their indigenous homeland?"

      ROTFLMSJAO. Hey "Jerry", as only one example, think how big the African diaspora is. Some reason why we are owed what they aren't?

    • "The right wing is just as dangerous as the left wing." "yonah"

      Oy gevalt, such a challenge it must be for Israel, to stick with its moderate, middle-of-the-road course, with both lefties and rightniks trying to drive it into the ditch.

  • Yaffa - the city my family once called home
  • Israel bars Palestinian grandmother from visiting slain father's grave for 70 years
  • 'Want to boycott Israel? Be my guest, there will be a pricetag' -- Israeli official warns Europe
  • Washing ashore in Hawaii
    • "Time is an illusion. The passage of time do not change the truth into becoming lies, or vice versa."

      Wow, this is totally awesome! What for years, decades, has been an inchoate, not to mention nebulous world of ideas just beyond my comprehension (which, let me tell you, upset my kishkas like you wouldn't believe) has been brilliantly illuminated, delineating mankind's existential position as a flash of lightening in a storm gives a distressed sailor one life-saving view of the entrance to that port in a storm.
      Thanks, "Bont".

    • "...Islam, the faith that started it all."

      Must we declare which was the "faith that started it all"?
      Maybe they did, but it was a long time ago, and grudges should be dismissed.

  • Video: Brisbane musicians rework Nick Cave classic to demand he cancel Israel show
    • But there's no hypocrisy in the Jewish State! They made their intentions to get rid of the Palestinians quite plain from the start.

      And who worries about morality or even legality when your power is doubling every decade!

    • "This coming from a country that eradicated it’s indigenous population, while commiting cultural genocide...,

      Quite true, and very sad, and and the consequences have dogged us. But the conditions of life in Europe were enough to create streams of tens of millions of immigrants and the resources of America there for the taking. So the sheer historical and economic pressure enabled North America to escape responsibility (if not the consequences) for those terrible acts, that way of doing things, that settler-colonialism.

      Now, what has Israel got, or what conditions will make it possible for Israel to commit atrocities and follow genocidal policies and get away with it? The Torah? Jewish DNA?
