  • Debunking the 2 claims: anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism, and BDS unfairly singles out Israel
    • Sounds pretty dicey accepting billions of dollars from anti-Semitic Americans. If Zionists can't stand the way us flaming "anti-Semites" want to set limits on how they spend taxpayers' money, maybe they should stop accepting it.

  • Russian meddling is Watergate-worthy, but Israeli meddling is hunky-dory
    • Wow! Why believe the NY Crimes on Russiagate when they lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and filled the world with misleading messages about Israel's treatment of Palestinians?
      A lot of evidence points to Seth Rich as the leaker of information from the DNC. First, Assange said that leaker was not Russian nor the official of any government. Craig Murray, the British diplomat who passed on the info to Wikileaks said the leaker was part of the DNC. Wikileaks offered a reward for information on the murder of Seth Rich. This is the only time that Wikileaks has offered a reward for murder information. Rich was a data director at the DNC and had access to all of the leaked memos. Rod Wheeler, the private investigator of the Rich murder, said that the DNC blocked his investigation of the Seth Rich murder. The local police department confiscated neighborhood videos that would have recorded his murder.
      Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, a group of professional retired spooks, said that the information downloaded by from DNC computers traveled too fast to have been obtained by a hacker. It had to have been copied by a leak. The DNC has never turned over their computers to the FBI so there is not a lot of cooperation to find these alleged "Russian" hackers.
      Blaming Russia for hacking is the perfect red herring to obscure what the leaked documents say and take attention away from the Seth Rich murder.

  • New website sets Zionist myths vs. the historical record
    • I read your book Mr. Suarez. Thank you for all your hard work. I would like to see your website document all of the times that the Zionist movement blocked immigration and rescue plans promoted by non-Jews. This would clearly show that Zionist founders wanted an empire and not a rescue of their fellow Jews.

  • When it comes to Syria, our press is full of moralizing and propaganda, and short on analysis
    • It looks like the Ministry of Propaganda wants you to get into big fights about the sins or relative innocence of Assad.

      The real question is, "Do you want the gov. to gamble with your life in a game of nuclear chicken with Russia?" NATO has sponsored the biggest display of war games since Hitler's operation Barbarossa. Putin, Gorbachev, and former US Sec of Defense William Perry have stated that we are closer to WW 3 than at any time during the Cold War. Israel is at ground zero in this gamble and all the rest of us are three steps away from ground zero. There is no assurance whatsoever that the war in Syria won't turn into a WW 3. There is no assurance that the Syrian war won't end with a second Jewish holocaust.

      I don't know why big Zionist donors are willing to accept this gamble. Either they possess self-delusion worthy of a Fukushima engineer, or they want front row seats in the New World Order and the people of Israel are just expendable.

      If I had it my way Jewish Voice for Peace and others would be encouraging everyone from Zionist to anti-Zionist and Palestinian to phone Saban, Soros, Spielberg, and Adelson and say that turning Syria into a rubble field is not worth a third world war and a second holocaust.

  • Stephen Cohen calls out liberal media for demonizing Russia, slurring Tillerson and stigmatizing all dissent
    • Greetings Keith and Sibiriak:
      The possibility of a Democrat/Soros/Bohemian Grove coup is real and scary. A Soros foundation was the third biggest contributor to Hillary's campaign, and he paid more money through the Clinton Foundation.
      A photograph of Hill and Bill at the concession speech (sorry I don't have the link) showed both of them wearing purple. Hillary wore a purple shirt and purple accented blazer and Bill wore a purple tie. Finding a purple tie is not easy. This couldn't have been accidental. The Soros color revolution for America is supposed to be purple.
      General Smedley Butler saved America from a Wall Street coup by reporting to Congress on a plan to assassinate Roosevelt. Do we have enough Smedley Butlers in the gov. to save us this time or has the New World Order gotten to the military too?

  • Where do we go from here? Our thoughts & yours on the US election
    • I'm relieved that Clinton and her New World Order Neocons lost. I did not look forward to Clinton and Robert Kagan ordering the military to shoot down Russian planes in Syria to enforce a no-fly zone. I did not wish to see where this game of nuclear chicken with Russia would end. I feared the graveyard Syria would become and the what the Cons would do to Iran after they finished murdering Syrians.
      If Trump insults Muslims, Clinton produces dead Muslim bodies-- by the hundreds of thousands. Despite these deaths, the left calls Trump the fascist.
      Go for the best of the Trump's possibilities. Mondoweiss and all the Progressives need to take advantage of this opportunity to pressure Trump to distance himself from the Neocon movement and expose and contain George Soros. Make certain that as few Neocons as possible are in the next administration.
      Soros, by funding Black Lives Matter, is not interested in saving Black lives; he wants to encourage violence to Federalize the police into a single unit that his billionaire friends can more easily control. This is like an American color revolution. The father of Patrick Zamarripa is suing Soros for his son's death at Ferguson. Soros and his planned New World Order need to be exposed and stopped.
      This may not be the best time for Palestinians, but it is an excellent time to save the lives of Syrians and Iranians. Thank goodness that Our Lady of Perpetual Invasions doesn't rule the White House.

  • There's no room on campus to be progressive and pro-Israel
    • The life you save may be your own.
      I can think of one much needed progressive cause that ought to unite both Zionists and anti-Zionists--all the military maneuvers in Europe and Syria that could start WW3. NATO has put first strike anti-missiles right at the edge of Russia's borders and Victoria Nuland has done her best to provoke Russia by promoting Neo-Nazi leaders in the Ukraine. So far, the Ukrainian war has sent a million refugees streaming into Russia like a European Nakba and killed 9,000 people--more than twice as many as died in Operations Blast Dead and Dalkon Shield combined.
      Nuland's fun and games put Hamas and Likud on the same page and could put them both in the same grave. If Nuland and NATO start WW3, Israel will be ground zero. All lives matter.

  • Marc Lynch warns against the U.S. escalation in Syria
    • Greetings Mondoweiss:
      Is there any possibility of a kindergarten approach to Syria? According to, Syria is a big dispute between two pipelines for oil in the Persian Gulf. One is the Qatar-Washington pipeline; the other is the Iran-Russia pipeline. Whoever gets the Syria pipeline controls the Middle East. Syria chose the Iran-Russia pipeline.
      It would seem that someone could negotiate two pipelines or one shared pipeline. It would certainly beats the alternative of WW3.

  • Sanders-backed candidate in FL says Wasserman Schultz won't 'protect' Israel
    • Wasserman Schultz won't protect America. Wasserman Schultz won't even protect DNC data analysts.

  • Palestine stands for the larger divide in the Democratic party
    • Hillary is not a Democrat. Her partner in coups, Victoria Nuland, overthrew an elected democracy in the Ukraine and replaced it with a civil war and a government at least partially run by Neo-Nazis.
      There has been a regime change in the Democratic party. It's now a neocon party. See "Robert Kagan and Other Neocons Are Backing Hillary Clinton".

      Getting Hillary elected could lead us into WW3 no matter how much couples counseling Hillary and her neocons get. Putin and the Russians are terrified that she will start a nuclear war. The coup Nuland started in the Ukraine has already taken 4,000 lives, a greater number than died in Operation Protective Shield. Former Ukrainian prime minister and imprisoned oligarch Yulia Tymoshenko said in a phone call that she wanted to nuke Ukrainian ethnic Russians along with their leader. What if Nuland and company install a base in the Ukraine and unleash Yulia?
      Vote for Jill Stein, at worst, vote for Trump, but don't support the neocon war machine and vote for Hillary.

  • Settler runs over sheep flock belonging to Palestinian, killing 25
  • Hard times: Pro-Israel group will pay young Jews $100 to watch its movies
  • Thank you, Chief Rabbi. Now I know: Judaism is to blame for the Nakba
  • Zionism threatens to bring anti-semitism full-circle
    • Okay, suppose Israelis truly believed that another Holocaust was just around the corner. How does Israel protect Jews? It moved half of the population of the world's Jews into a small state the size of New Jersey that could be exterminated by one clandestine H-bomb.

      How does Israel protect Jews when there are stings of black-ops Napoleons intent on territorial expansion and oblivious to the enemies they make. Victoria Nuland, a person who thought she was pro-Israel, was not satisfied to harass Arabs, she chose to engineer a coup in the Ukraine threatening Russia's food supply despite Russia's enormous arsenal of atomic bombs. While it's true that Nuland is American, the real question is whether Putin would see her as a Zionist, an American, or a person promoting Israel.

      Nuland wouldn't have gotten as far as she did if Netanyahu phoned her saying, "Hey toots, don't enrage the bear. I've got eight million lives to protect." But I suppose what's the point of a safe haven if the really important folks can't gamble with the lives of people who live there.

      If leaders on the level of Netanyahu and Nuland really feared a Holocaust, they wouldn't be leading Jews into Israel or provoking Russia. They may talk about safe havens, but what makes them move is territorial expansion.

  • Saying Israel has no right to exist as a Jewish state is not anti-Semitic
  • It is time to stop celebrating Jewish dissent in the Palestine solidarity movement
    • I can empathize with Ms. Elia. It is horrible to see your family being killed and then watch a political movement that makes memes or stars out of Jewish "defectors". Unfortunately, a movement to end the occupation can't give Palestinian activists all the attention they deserve and still be quickest way to save lives.

      Activists make Jewish defectors into memes because it works. The people the BDS movement most needs to reach are Jews who believe their lives depend supporting Israel, non-Jews who have seen way more holocaust movies than YouTube videos of Israeli horrors, or people who to some extent buy the 911 official story and fear Muslims. In an audience like this, a Jewish defector is hard to beat.

      If you really want to end the occupation, make certain that every Jewish defector gets 15 minutes of fame, meme status on the Internet, and paparazzi opportunities for their next movie, book, restaurant, or shampoo formula. Every Jewish superstar defector makes all the other Jews wonder why they are following Menachem Begin rather than Albert Einstein.

      I do think that there should be equal attention given to non-Jewish "defectors" like Steven Hawkins and the most mediagenic Presbyterian or Congregationalist who helped their church divest. When people start competing over who had the best defection, then you have a movement that moves.

      Yes, I would like to see more Palestinian speakers, but more than that I would like to see a movement that does the best job of saving lives.

  • Why Clinton's Iraq decision matters
    • Help me, Mondoweiss. What did AIPAC and Israel get out of the Iraq war? I don't see that the war with Iraq had any immediate benefit for Israel's economy and I'm not seeing any Israeli colonists living there in comfort.
      Was it arms sales, a distraction from attention to Palestinian rights, a future place to exile unwanted Palestinians, some future colonial land grab, or was it revenge for WW II even if Iraqis had nothing to do with that war? Who got rich off the Iraq war?

  • Zionism is not really secular
    • I have some questions. If a government, Israel, is a religion, doesn't it become a cult? If Zionism is a religion, funding Israel promotes a religion and doesn't this violate the First Amendment?
      In the religion of Judaism, just what was "Israel"? Was it a state or a state-of-mind? If it was a state, what were its boundaries? Was it three synagogues in Jerusalem, was it all the land extending to the Euphrates, did it include Paris, how about Madison, Wisconsin?
      I believe in the theory of evolution. This was once science, but there's more bang for the buck in religion. The theory of evolution is essential to my identity and faith. My ancestors came from Olduvai Gorge, and I have a right of return. I cite the fossil record. How much African property do I now own? How many Africans can I shoot to acquire this promised land?

  • Play about 17-year-old Palestinian youth killed in 2000 tours Atlanta, St. Louis, New York
  • Zionism is finally in the news, as officials seek to conflate anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism
    • I think that peacenik Jews need to chime in on accusations antisemitism. They are just as Jewish as the government of Israel--perhaps more so since they are compassionate.
      If it's antisemitic to disagree with the government of Israel, isn't it also antisemitic to disagree with Einstein or JVP? If I am being antisemitic by disagreeing with the IDF, what if I agree with the IDF, then I'm being antisemitic toward Dr. Einstein. That's really scary. Wouldn't want to be accused of antisemitism by a modern day follower of Einstein.
      If you disagree with me, you've just committed a hate crime against atheists and really promoting a plan to burn atheists at the stake.

  • Sayed Kashua doesn't want to write in Hebrew for 'Haaretz' anymore
  • With hasbara robot, the 'startup nation' enters its decadent phase
    • Where is Frank Luntz when the mind spinners really need him? Why is Israel spending millions of dollars on spin only to create a Zionist robot that is certain to offend everyone who comes in contact with it?
      Why did Iran180, a pro-Israel lobbying group create a float of Ahmadinejad being raped by a nuclear missile for the 2011 Gay Pride Parade. An atomic war with Iran could easily kill as many people in one day as died in the entire Jewish Holocaust. A "joke" about nuclear war with Iran is about as tasteful as a "joke" about the Holocaust.
      Why does Israel pay for spinmasters like Luntz and then almost deliberately offend people?

  • Austrian Parliament cancels International Women's Day event following attacks on Hedy Epstein
    • Too bad for Hedy Epstein. Perhaps the gatekeepers of the Holocaust respectability ought to take a closer look at their most famous and wealthiest Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, "the conscience of the Holocaust". Holocaust survivor Miklos Greuner called Wiesel and impostor. Greuner (also Gruner) ought to know. Elie Wiesel claims to have been Lazar Wiesel. Greuner knew Lazar Wiesel well.
      Some of the points Greuner made are as follows:
      Lazar Wiesel was the Hungarian and Yiddish speaking inmate at Buchenwald. Elie Wiesel doesn't speak Hungarian and isn't fluent in Yiddish.
      If Lazar were alive today, he would be 103 years old. Elie is younger than Lazar.
      Elie Wiesel has consistently refused to show the tattoo on his forearm given to all concentration camp inmates. There are no photographs of Elie Wiesel's tattoo although there are several Internet photographs of Wiesel without a tattoo.
      Greuner speaks Hungarian fluently and has been photographed with his tattoo. He tried unsuccessfully to sue Elie Wiesel for fraud and he has received death threats if he publicized his evidence.
      Unfortunately, this story has been passed on by anti-Semitic and Holocaust denying websites that detracted from the credibility of the story. Still, it's a big discrepancy if Elie claims to be a Hungarian survivor and can't speak the language.
      Even if Elie Wiesel were Lazar Wiesel, he has a cold heart. Elie Wiesel opposed allowing any information about Gypsy, gay, and Communist victims of the Holocaust into the Holocaust Museum. What did any Gypsy ever do to him?

  • Most US Jewish students don't see Israel as 'civilized' or a 'democracy,' Luntz tells secret anti-BDS conference
  • Trump says he must be 'neutral' on Israel/Palestine, then slags Palestinians as anti-Semites
    • The story is getting complex. Murdoch controls a media conglomerate. See Wikipedia.
      He owns Fox news which has given Trump a lot of publicity. Vanity Fair writes the Murdoch hates Trump, yet Murdoch's Fox news corporation has give Trump a huge amount of publicity. Trump has publicly denounced Murdoch for negative publicity.
      So publicly they fight each other. Still Trump gets a huge media benefit from Fox. I'm having trouble determining what Murdoch really wants and what is spin and whether this "feud" is real.

    • People of Mondoweiss, help me out. We know about Haim Saban and Sheldon Adelbrain, but what about campaign promoter Rupert Murdoch? "Lord" Murdoch has vertical and horizontal control over papers, TV and radio. Obviously. Trump is his candidate. Trump got an overwhelming amount of Murdoch's publicity and is thus a front runner.
      What does Murdoch want? Did Trump somehow pay Murdoch for his news coverage? Is Murdoch promoting Trump so Hillary wins? What makes Murdoch tick?
      Also, how much do elections really count if Diebold voting machines can easily be hacked by programmers? Why didn't Hillary bring out the hackers sooner and defeat Sanders?

  • 16-year-old Palestinian boy shot and killed for throwing stones
    • "Simple as this, don’t attack Jews, don’t attack police or army, you won’t get hurt.

      The days are long gone where Jews can be murdered or wounded with impunity. We will fight back."

      You seem to be implying that it is appropriate to kill stone throwers without an investigation or trial. Does the same go for Israelis who routinely throw stones at Palestinians?

    • . . . the people who made the desert bleed. . .

  • Despite total lack of evidence, Israeli court sentences 'Hares Boys' to 15 years in prison
  • How many more orgasms will be had for Zionism?
    • While the story of Jewish summer camps eroticizing Israel is a kinky, I’m always surprised that the discussion of Zionism never seems to touch on the heavy price Zionists demanded of their fellow Jews in order to establish Israel. I would think that more Jews would be afraid of Zionists.
      I have just finished reading the True Torah Jews website. The site quotes Theodore Herzl, founder of Zionism, as saying, “It would be an excellent idea to call in respectable, accredited anti-Semites as liquidators of property. . . . The anti-Semites will become our most dependable friends, the anti-Semitic countries our allies.” (The Complete Diaries of Theodor Herzl. Vol. 1, edited by Raphael Patai, translated by Harry Zohn, page 83-84)
      This is scary. A leader who wants to ally with murderous anti-Semites in order to impoverish his fellow Jews and force them out of Europe is either a crook or a cult leader.
      The story gets worse. Early Zionists didn’t just write strange ideas on how to create their state. During the Holocaust, they actively blocked rescue plans other people made on behalf of Jews if these meant moving Jews to some place other than Palestine. Rabbi Michael Ber Weissmandl, a Jewish hero who risked his life to stop the Holocaust, lists several blocked rescue plans and rescue opportunities. The saddest case involved a British plan to save half a million Jews.

      “On December 17, 1942 both houses of the British Parliament declared its readiness to find temporary refuge for endangered persons. The British Parliament proposed to evacuate 500,000 Jews from Europe, and resettle them in British colonies, as a part of diplomatic negotiations with Germany. This motion received within two weeks a total of 277 Parliamentary signatures. On Jan. 27, when the next steps were being pursued by over 100 M.P.'s and Lords, a spokesman for the Zionists announced that the Jews would oppose the motion because Palestine was omitted.” See

      I see this Zionist opposition to Britain’s plan as a huge betrayal. It cost Jews half a million lives. Present day Israelis would have to launch over 200 Protective Edges to kill this many Palestinians. If Brits planned to save half a million Jews and Zionists blocked them, this turns all the Holocaust propaganda I’ve heard in my life on its head. One might say, “Remember the Holocaust; oppose Zionism.”
      Although Zionism today isn’t as scary for Jews as blocked rescue plans, it doesn’t really make the world safer for most Jews. Israel could not possibly fulfill its promise of being a safe haven for all the world’s Jews escaping anti-Semitism. Israel is a crowded country. Sixty percent of the world’s Jewish population lives outside of Israel. They couldn’t all live in Israel. Netanyahu is doing his best to make enemies across the globe and inflict his reputation on his fellow Jews. To put it crudely, Netty’s crowd is asking Jews to sacrifice their reputation and possibly their safety to protect someone else’s property and its stolen property at that.

  • New Jersey teenager threatened with legal action by high school over pro-Palestine activism (Update)
    • This is scary. It looks like the Patriot Act has done its work. A school principal feels entitled to threaten Benny with a lawsuit for what she said over the Internet not what she said in a face-to-face encounter with another student on school grounds. Furthermore Benny's Internet tweets contained no recognizable physical threats to another student's safety. Benny can be threatened with a lawsuit for challenging someone's ego or worldview. Whatever happened to free speech?
      I remember the time when people could say "Fuck America" or even "Fuck Israel" and not expect to be charged with a crime. We used to be proud to have a country that allowed free speech, even opinionated speech. What happened?

  • Liberal Zionist group says Israeli army compares favorably to 'oppressive police forces in the US'
    • Operation Protective Edge killed an estimated approximately 2,000 people. Israel's population is 8.4 million and America's population is 326 million. I don't know if this Wikipedia number for Israel includes Gaza or not. Taking the Wikipedia estimate for Israel's population, if America killed people at the same rate as Israel's Protective Edge, the police would have killed 77,000 people.
      Israel does worse in the graveyard count.

  • Posters linking Muslim students and BDS activists to terrorism appear on college campuses in California and Washington, DC
    • Hey, folks. Boycotting is money and shopping. Terrorism involves shedding blood. Gandhi, among others, supported boycotts. We need to see more of Gandhi's images on BDS announcements. If anything would embarrass Horriblewits, this would.

  • Zionism, anti-blackness, and the struggle for Palestine
    • I'm neither Black nor Jewish, but I think of the Jewish people who died in the Mississippi Freedom Summer fighting for equal rights for Blacks. Small folk have to rub each others backs and hope we can patch together a better world than the war zone we've got.
      Neturei Karta had it right when they held up signs saying, "Judaism and Zionism are exact opposites."
