  • Signs you may be a 'normalizer'
    • @annie

      It is hard to type copy paste on my phone. I agree you can honour other groups by mentioning them as well and not by omitting Jewish victims.

      It is the trump era in the US. Is anyone shocked? Will zionists abandon him? I doubt it. Where is Jared?

      At the same time it is easy for me to turn a cold shoulder to a large number of these complaints depending on how they are phrased. Where are the complaints that trump omitted a number (big or small) of groups in the comments.

      What trump did is awful. What some of the complainers seek is also awful.

    • @dabakr

      Not you didn't say that everyone does evil. You said that history is all about commiting what we now consider crimes against humanity. So get over it when Israel does it. It is the way things work.

      You ha e merely tried to normalize crimes and inhumanity. As i pointed out history is replete with genocide so your line of logic normalizes the holocaust. Something you and your fellow travellers will stand alone in doing. Well you and the aryan nations.

      Evil is evil. The norms of 2000 years ago do not apply
      No one wants them to apply except for zionists and then only for their cause.

      The argument you propose is an absolute disgrace

    • @dohbaker

      Oh! Were you attempting to suggest that i was crying crocodile tears over the victims of the holocaust?

      I didn't make any pretense of tears. Can you show me where I did? And while I am not Jewish, I too lost family fighting the evil that was nazism.

      I don't wail and gnash my teeth. I do have an unlimited disdain for racist and supremacist ideologies whatever they may be. That includes the ideology of which you are an adherent and supporter.

      You are not the victim. You are the aggressor and oppressor.

    • @dohbaker

      It is you that trivialize crimes against humanity including events such as the holocaust. Yoy won't find anywhere I've pretended to shed tears over you or your fellow travellers. Such a lack of morality, while not unique, is a blight upon humanity.

      Some of us would like the world to progress into and more humane and peaceful state. Zionists want to drag us back thousands of years. I have no converns about my choice. Perhaps you don't have any about yours. Sadly for you we have a series of laws that you would need to undo. Including the laws that defined nazi actions as illegal. Good luck with attemtping to undo those. I think you will find yourself quickly sidelined just for the effort.

    • @Keith

      To suggest that the objecting to the use of words that are extremely perjorative as over the top is over the top in itself.

      I have never been politically correct and won't start to be so at this point in life. Some things are just wrong on the face of it.

    • @dohbaker

      The entirety of human history is filled with genocide as well. Whether pre bibical times or post.

      It takes a vile and worthless piece of flotsam such as yourself to normalize the holocaust. But zionists have a long and indisputable history of throwing Jewish people under the bus. Even when ignoring they were also the one driving the bus!

      The hard part is inunderstanding how you can be so deluded and blind to the evil that you support and perpetrate.

      What goes around comes around. Whether it is on a small scale such as Israeli you being killed while murdering innocents or on a larger scale. As mooser says the two billion adherents will protect you. Not.

      Now I have the guilt of forcing you to work harder. Not my intention and under no circumstances should you push yourself.

      I tended to look for them weekly. That makes the summation even more depressing knowing that the frequency of these incidents is vastly greater than i thought.

      I will restate that no one in the western world would put up with one third of this type of treatment.

      Seriously... i greatly value your efforts and will pay more attention in future. Humble apologies.

    • @Kate

      Your weekly summaries are incredibly depressing and angering. How dare zionists claim that Palestinians don't want peace. That such a low level of violence exists when there is such a high level of violence and abuse directed at them is astonishing. No citizens of western states would tolerate this for a minute. Even participating in a non violent protest brings a high risk of being brutalized or murderes.

      It is one of the most valuable parts of this site. And many thanks for that.

  • Leading Clintonite worries that Trump will sell out Israel in forging deal with Russia
    • @kaisa

      Welcome. I have no reason to dispute much of what you state. Not that I agree with it but I merely have no basis to disagree with it.

      I do take issue with the fairness of the vote but only to the extent that observers were invited but refused to participate.

      The result may or may not be invalid.

      What we do know is the legitimate leadership of the country was unconstitutionally overthrown. That the Russians did attempt to follow proper procedure in tes of the annexation. We will never know if it was a sincere attempt.

      As this is a blog on IP and the ME, we also know that the various annexations by Israel have never even made a pretense at following international law, explicitly violate international law and therefore are one of the many list items that make Israel a rogue state.

      I support sorting it, Crimea once we have sorted out the longer running and vastly more serious Israeli violations.

  • Israeli gov't doesn't really want US to move embassy to Jerusalem -- Foxman
    • @catalan

      Two quick points. There are more than three states in the various grouping(s) referred to as Eastern Europe. Your reliance on numbers alone is neither particularly appropriate nor wise. For example those wonder states such as Qatar, Suadi Arabia and the UAE rank higher in some respects and you would be hard pressed to find many who would argue they are first rate.

    • @Nevada Ned

      You really didn't need to point out i was nearing the end of my mid life crisis 30 years ago. How depressing. The only bright side being the large number of friends I have outlived. No not really. Happier today than I have been in ages but the reasons are both wonderful and personal.

    • @catalan

      Yes east European nations are third rate nations. Not to to say their citizens are third rate or even not first rate in any way. Their states and governance are equivocable to other hell holes ruled by despots and dictators.

      Your defense of them speaks to a lack of both common senze and morality in your beliefs.

      Finance right? Sure... go update your taxes receivable subledger. I am sure your self proclaimed wizardy with numbers can do a reasonable job under appropriate supervision.

    • @catalan

      I doubt anyone is buying into the claim you are rich. You are a low level management position in a municipality (which i will concede tend to be overpaid). You don't even have supervisory functuons which means your management level position is merely one of gaming the pay amd classification system.

      Just as i nailed you as a typical zionist when you first posted I will add that you are a stereotypical narcissist.

      I am glad you post. You have provided continual comic relief to the website. I underrate your abilities when i posit you are a legend in your own mind.

  • MIT President meets with rightwing pro-settlement Israeli leader
    • @eljay

      And that is the bottom line. These people areovert racists engaged in war crimes and crimes against humanity. They don't have to hide their objectives or methods. They proudly procalim their illegal plans. Just like m.cohen the other day who sees potential in a series of crimes as a solution to the ME. The world looks away.

      It is a sad day for humanity when humanity ignores such crimes and evil.

  • The Israeli police’s extrajudicial execution of Israeli citizen Yaqoub Abu Al-Qia’an
    • @ech

      Perhaps. Extrajudicial execution implies that the individual was accused of doing something potentially illegal. This individual wasn't. He was just slaughtered.

      Just another day and another racist murder by Israel. Karma is great sometimes.

    • Extra judicial execution seems wrong in this case. This is more of a case of flat out murder

    • @jackduh

      Reviewing the footage several times I can't see any point in time when other police officers, beside the one killed, were struck by the vehicle.
      Do you have any evidence or proof of your claim? I won't wait as you're typically a fact free propagandist and apologist anyway.

      It's not relevant jackieboy.

      This behaviour is a violation of Rule 110 ICRC, as well as the first Geneva Convention and additional protocols I and II.

      It is time that Israeli medical services be expelled from it's connections with the ICRC for it's repeated abuse of International Humanitarian Law and the Geneva Conventions. Give the propensity of Israeli medical personnel in the field to commit murder all such staff should be designated as combatants inany hostile actions.

    • Palestinian incitement pales in comparison to Israeli incitement. It pales because Israelis have the easy access to weapons.

      While we do see the occassional statement from Palestinian leaders which can fall into incitement but it is a regular and frequent occurrence fro m the GoI. While they make much of Palestinian incitement and the msm portrays international calls as being directed at the Palestinian side the calls have generally been directed at both sides.

      Just another state sponsored murder of the innocent amd unarmed. Israel is a terrorist state.

  • By their bulldozers you will know them
    • That's too funny but in line with the levels of corruption and illegality in the GoI.

    • @m.cohen

      No one will be surprised that you support the illegal annexation of Palestinian territory. Even area C, which is currently under Israeli control, was to be turned over to the Palestinians 8 years ago. Bennet's false claims of Israeli ownership have no merit.

      Similarly is no surprise that you support apartheid on steroids. That is exactly what Bennet is suggesting with his proposal of a Palestinian area that is less than a state. In short a Bantustan.

      I guess once you support the criminal actions of a rogue state the only options that are apparent are more crimes ro paper over past crimes.

      Wouldn't you rather support a legitimate state of Israel instead of outlaw rogue state? It appears not to be the case.

    • @yonah

      Do tell yonah. What's your take.

      Because of rivalry between arabic states Israel was forced to undertake a sneak attack upon them and slaughter people outside of the laws of war?

      Mooser's ripost is funny but your post is pure comedic genius.

    • Well said. Maybe I am a bad bad man but I consider individuals who identify as Jewish to be no more or less equal to anyone who identifies with any other religion or no religion. That said an individual who supports Israel or even Saudi Arabia (a not all inclusive list) is morally bankrupt as those states are morally bankrupt and are both rogue states and human rights abusers.

      It is the zionists who equate Jews with Israel. Not me. It is not a state comprised of solely Jews and it's supporters are not solely Jewish. Just thugs who disregard the equality of mankind. Maybe one of the zionists can remind me who claims to speak for all Jews and which state claims to be the state for all Jews.

      Hophead can whine all he wants but he is whining from the bottom of the gutter. jackdoh is merely ignorant and racist to the core. Their sole contribution to mankind is to help define the lower level(s) of humanity. Examples of how low humans can sink.

  • Trump 'promise' to move US embassy to Jerusalem stirs international furor
    • @annie

      Too funny annie. In a very sad way.

      Duhlefthandcurvedweelerdohbaker doesn't understand the import of the UNSC vote recently held together with the vast majority of 7 billion people which have decried their war crimes and vile lack of humanity.

      What a bubble he lives in.

      Madge your hands are soaking in it.

      Cue hophead to cry antisemitism.

    • @eljay

      Quite correct.

      Attachment, whether historical religious or otherwise, is not a property deed.

      If it comes to be I could look forward to the day that the criminal zionists make peace with the civilians that they slaughter and oppress and the world cedes part of Jerusalem as their capitol. I prefer to see it as an international city but the valuation of of basic human rights to all by the the zionist savages would be a wonderful thing and I would celebrate that day.

    • @annie

      Well the loss of prestige is not all Israel's fault. It has been a gradual decline from the point of South amd Central America adventures. SouthEast Asia.

      But Israel and the zionist cause has certainly perpetuated the downward path.

      In simplistic terms the perception is that a democracy should behave properly as the majority of people will ensure that. At this stage of life I am no longer convinced of that and not only because of the US. I will include my own country in that side of the ledger.

      I do believe the majority of people are good. I guess it's too depressing to consider the alternative. Not enough care? Too many other worries taking their time and attention?

      Israel is one of the longest running human rights abuses. It needs to be addressed. One of and not the only one.

      No matter how lowlives like hophmi or jackdoh or duhbaker wish to justify such inhumanity it is one of the pressing issues.

      That decent people can support such a barbaric, inhuman and vile state astounds me. And Israel is not improving with age. It is becoming worse with each passing day as the murders and oppression mounts.

    • @annie

      Indeed. Neither east nor west Jerusalem is legally a part of Israel. Both parts were acquired through the use of force and Israel has been constantly and consistently reminded that territory cannot be legally acquired in that way.

      Certainly the word has, in my opinion, indicated that it is prepared to acknowledge that all or part of Jerusalem is Israeli territory. While it has made such indications it is predicated on Israel completing a peace agreement with the Palestinians. Keeping mind that the Palestinians are under no legal obligation to concede a single inch of their territory.

      The rogue state of Israel and it's war criminal acts participants and supporters crave legitimacy. They are deluded and off the hinge, as jackdoh clearly demonstrates on a regular basis, in that they refuse to do what is required to gain that legitimacy. Come to a peace agreement with the victims of their over half century of murder and crimes.

      Sucks to be an outlaw I guess.

      Trump may move the embassy but Israel won't gain a shred of legitimacy and neither will their illegal claims. It will lower the US in the eyes of the word, however, as it will be standing against all of international law and the majority of people on this planet.

      It's a shame that Israel has chosen to betray it's citizen's through war crimes, theft, murder and oppression. It isn't even a beacon onto African hell holes.

  • It's happening
    • @Citizen

      No they aren't.

      They are stealing land.

      Israel has never legally annexed a single square inch of territory. A rogue state stealing land is all it is.

  • Obama's failure, and achievement, in Palestine
    • I kind of likenthis quote and agree wholeheartedly with it.

      "Any attempt to link a sovereign state that wants to defend itself with religion is a double-edged sword that can become quickly dangerous as well for other groups of society."

      Two funny things in this.

      One the quote is from the Israeli ambassador to Germany.

      The second is that he suffers so greatly from cognitive dissonance that he seems blissfully unaware of the actions and words of zionists who not only want to link the state with religion but demands others recognize the linkage.

      It is indeed a double edge sword. I have said so any times. And it won't end well.

    • @hophmi

      Be honest for once. What has made the lives of Palestinians worse is the rogue state of Israel and it's supporters, like you, who actively and violently support it's war crimes, crimes against humanity and flagrant violations of the Geneva Conventions.

      Oh forget I asked. You aren't ever going to attempt to be honest.

  • 'Constructed crisis for political ends': anti-Semitism claims are prime weapon for UK Israel lobby, Al Jazeera shows
    • @harry

      What is the big deal about putting students safety at risk? Zionist thugs love antisemitism. They use it to implore Jewish peope to emigrate to their racist barbaric state. They use it to justify their barbaric actions against innocent civilians. Antisemitism and violence against Jewish people is their bread and butter. It benefits them. When they can't generate sufficient hostility against Jews they will perpetrate acts against Jews themselves. They have even gone so far as to slaughter Jews for their own benefit. I am sure they wpuld argue the greater good but I doubt it is a selling point with either the victims or their families.

      Israel was born out of terrorist violence and it survives by the same means. A rogue state by action and definition.

      Canadians do not need to register for a political party either. You do need to register to vote but that can be at the polling station with suitable id.

      I assume that your description of aussies is correct but my suspicion is that Canadians don't join a party, vote for whomever they want to and spend the next four years claiming they didn't vote for the government no matter which party wins.

      I don't get registering for a party. Seems like info the gov doesn't need or can get in alternate ways. It has nothing to do with your vote technically. It is not mandated you should vote party lines.

  • It turns out Jews are as stupid as everyone else
    • @tuyzenfloot

      I simply don't agree with your characterization of those plans as a reasonable inference. Regime change is certainly one of the core elements of the pnac plan and any balkanziation/restructuring of the region would perforce require that. We will have to disagree on that point.

      When taken together with Israel's involvement with the Kurds and Al Nusra, as documented by unifil forces, and also combined with their public statements the the desire for regime change and active efforts in that process are clear.

      Of course Israel has some bright minds in quite a variety of fields. Most countries. It is a given and non issue and absolutely irrelevant to zionist supremacism depriving millions of people their basic human rights on a daily basis.

      I am going out on a limb here but I bet Israel has some really tall people too. Go figure!

    • @talknic

      I don't know why you keep on pointing out that adhering to international law would bankrupt Israel.

      It is not like Israel has ever had any intention of doing so. It is not as if they would like to adhere and find themselves in a predicament at this stage.
      It was preplanned as a crime against humanity. It was executed as a crime against humanity. They have indocrinated their adherents to believe they are victims. Victims of being held to account to the same standards as other states. In their mind they are being singled out by not being (not merely allowed) but being supported in a positive way while perpetrating crimes against humanity. Indeed crines against humanity perpetrated by groups such as ISIS fully justify their crimes against humanity even though their crimes predate ISIS by decades.

      They are only rated as the second most despised state in the world because all seven billion of us have some genetic flaw (which is corrected by god if we convert religion) which they magically escape.

      No syria is not a valid point. Syria is potential additional threat at some future point in time when Israel no longer offers aid support and assistance to the most vile of jihadis.

  • Why Israel wants us to say 'terror'
    • We are dealing with a virulent and violent politicL ideology and people.

      Those people (zionists) think they have the right to decide which of the basic unoversal human rights Palestinian may enjoy. Granting those rights is their perogative andntheirs alone. Anyone who doesn't agree and tries to remedy the situation is an antisemite or self hating Jew.

      Even Israeli minorities, while granted the majority of basic rights, are not entitled to the full set of rights enjoyed by Jewish citizens.

      Clearly no one of that deviant mindset is about to recognize the right to resist their oppression, colonisation or ethnic cleansing.

      Ergo it must be terrorism for a civilian to employ violence against zionist will.

      Obviously Israel has a great need to hide the reasons that generate Palestinian violence. And just as great a need to convince the world that they are a of some common struggle.

      The world is waking up by degrees and are horrified by the evil acts of that nation.

      It was not terrorism. It was resistance. I feel for the families but they should look to those responsible. The GoI and the barbaric violent zionists. The same folks that their kids were indoctrinated to commit war crimes and crimes against humanity on behalf of.

      No evidence exists. It is you that can't accept that. And with that pretext many murders were committed. Millions of dollars stolen. Thousands of lives destroyed. Millions of lives were denied the opportunity to enjoy their basic rights.

Even to the point that thy turned the sight of the killing into public entertainment complete with popcorn. Assuredly an insignificant number of peoplre participated in that immoral spectacle but the leaderahip, elected and otherwise, turned a blind eye to the evil in sderot.

      I hoped for much more from Obama do for me his tenure was a huge disappointment.

      I think he has a lot to answer for. Especially his kill lists. I can grasp the concept that states kill foreign nationals without due process but we are brought up to believe that our gov will give us due process. Obama continued to expose the lie in that belief.

      That said, yez, I do believe that Obama will stand out as a positive exception to both Bush and Trump.

      As usual you provide no backup for your charges. If you think that Israel is in any way a rational state or it's leaders rational actors then you live in la la land. It is a clearly belligerent rogue state supported only by the lunatic fringe such as yourself.

      Btw in the US there is only one leader with their finger on the button. In Israel.... well we don't know as it follows an outlaw credo.

      Shorter version... blow it out your a**.

    • I can't agree that it is a step back. It explicitly legitimates nothing. It explicilty states specific things are totally illegal and in violation of IL and flagrantly in violation of GC.

      Regardless of whether it was said before or not the world is more connected now and that message is received directly by a larger number of people. It strenghtens the bargaining hand of the Palestinians which infuriates the criminal zionists. It should. The criminals shouldn't be able to get away with their outright. Side note... it is sickenly amusing that left wing zionists are so criminal that they think commiting further crimes (illegal annexation) is a sound solution. These people are so morally depraved, and I do mean depraved, that they view their crimes as being generous on their part.

      The fact is the world is willing to concede some things in the interest of peace. This may not satisfy justice but there you have it. Just as the zionist racism and criminality brought us to this point those same character flaws will eventually be brought over the brink anf the zionist project will fail. As it should. As should any morally bankrupt project of immoral thugs fail.

      I don't believe it will fail in my lifetime any more. And i would be happy to be wrong if it continued with acceptance of all in the region but don't believe that can happen.

      It is imperative to drag Israel into the NPT. They are a rogue criminal state and they are crazy enough to use them. I would feel safer if the mad mullahs had nukes and Israel did not no matter how offensive I find thead mullahs to be.

      You are assuming I am reasoning it.... my gut feel is the same as yours which is why i said whether it would be approved in a referendum remains to be seen.

      Coming up with a peace deal to put to a referendum should not be hindered by ror though as the PA has basically agreed to give away the store.

      My own take on the lack of a peace deal is that it isn't there as Israel doesn't want one and prefers to use the conflict to perpetrate more crimes.

    • @yonah

      The right of return should not be a major issue in negotiations. The documents disclosed by wikileaka showed the PA had agreed to a symbolic return of about 10,000. This should not be a problem to an Israel desiring peace. Whether it could have been agreed to by the Palestinians in a referendum is another issue.

    • @Kay24

      Exactly right. It doesn't matter one bit who planned it.

    • @yonah

      Why should the resolution have made a distintion over the Jewish quarter?

      If it is not Israeli territory it is not Israeli territory. If it was once property owned by Jewish people then that does not make it Israeli territory. Not even in a month of Sundays. The conflation of Jews = Israel is even more risible and vile than Israel = Jews. No that is not the sMe as A = B and B = A. In actuality that would be part of the problem.

      Deep attachment or connection is not a property deed. If the Jewish quarter is so near and dear to Israeli hearts it could trade off other parts recognized as Israeli territory in an exchange with the Palestinians it has victimized for over a half century.

      Baby doesn't want to solve it. He wants to steal it. And he wants to rid himself of the non Jewish irritant. That is clear to the most casual observer and I don't believe for a second that you are that naive. He was elected leader because the majority of Israelis are die hard racists and supremacists. Not the majority of Jews. Isrealis. Don't do a completely bogus conflation of the two.

      Or was that your escape hatch with the phrase on terms Abbas can not accept .... which means he wants to take everything he wants and leave the Palestinians nothing.

      Israelnis a rogue state heading full speed to pariah status. You go baby. It is what that state deserves. It could so easy join the civilized world instead of ranking with North Korea and ISIS if it wanted. There is not enough people left in the country with the moral backbone to select that choice. Spin spin, down the drain. After a half century of warninhs nothing more is required and cerrainly not deservex.

      Dump zionism into the same dustbin that gave rise to nationalisms in the late 1800s. All rotten to the core.

    • @dbroncos

      It is not an unreasonable question to ask why the msm is not pointing out that the resolution merely affirms what has been long standing US policy. Particularly as it is the US msm.

      In the UK we see the same. The focus is on poor little betrayed Israel without a single article focussing on the UK position and why it voted in favour.

      It truly is not unreasonable to ask.

      You are correct.... Obama needs to state the facts direcrly to the people and cut out the media filters which have a clearly obvious desire to reflect the position of a foreign nation.

  • Israel's political left also condemns the UN's anti-settlement resolution
    • I am sure there is a wide gap in social policy between the Israeli left and right but both sides are still zionists and racist supremacists that support war crimes, violations of international law and humanitarian law. Oh and the GC of course. To Israels the right to self determination seems to mean they can do whatever they want, without restrictions or consequences, whether it is within their country or not.

      All of this whining and crying by the eternal victims is laughable.

      Israel has known for a half century that it's actions were illegal. It just didn't care. Not only didn't care nut flaunted their lawlessness and bigotry as if it was some source of pride.

      It is fascinating to see how fast Israel resorted to punishing tiny Senegal. It seems they have no trouble with such tactics and that they just don't want to pay a price for their criminal acts.

      Boycotts are good but it is long past time for the world to bring in sanctions against Israel. Time to being in the ICC and ICJ and let the rule of law do it's job.

    • @talkback

      Welk said and true. Jon s being the prime example of someone who likes to consider homself left wing yet supports hawkish policies and violations of agreed upon international law. Jon is only left due to extremist (and extremely violent) nature of the Israeli right wing. There is nothing left wing about his stance on the issues and they all boil down to supremacist beliefs.

      There is a left wing in Israel. They are so miniscule in numbers they aren't worth counting as a group. There efforts are nevertheless heroic particularly as they often attract death threats from the rabid nationalists.

    • @yonah

      Of course the UN never said that Jewish (or Israeli for that matter) presence at the wailing wall was a war crime. And it isn't. Deciding to claim it as Israeli territory certainly is.

      Why the distortion? It is like the claim that UNESCO denied the Jewish connection to certain sites. A completely perverse mistatement of what they said.

      Are zionists incapable of exercising a normal level of comprehension? I don't believe that for a second.

      The very best spin I can put into a guess is that they know the actual facts do not support their arguments.

  • Obama stands up to Trump (and Israel)
    • @Talkback

      I am not sure about the voting records of all resolutions but to clarify your comment... the US did not abstain on Rss 476. It voted in favour. Res 476 declared Israeli actions wrt to Jerusalem null and void and in breach of law particularly the GC.

      It further castigated Israel for not adhering to other resolutions (ie related to settlements etc)

      Israel is undeniably a rogue state.

    • Oh two guesses why and the first one doesn't count. Zionists need to portray this as something highly unusual and unprecedented. Something that justifies it be fixed in light of that. It's a betrayal and they are a victim. All about controlling the message instead of dealing with actual facts which go against their actions and policies.

      Their main problem is that this is now a part of international law. The secondary problem is how to shut down BDS which they try to characterize as antisemitic but which should now attempt to restrict itself to this rightfully damning resolution.

      Once again Israel showed it is clearly a rogue state by publicly stating it will not even attempt to adhere to international law, international humanitarian law, Geneva Conventions and UNSC resolutions.

      Nutty and co are intent on driving Israel into pariah status.
