  • Sorry American Jews, you don't have a birthright
    • Yossi, congratulations with an excellent, refreshing look at the situation. The zionists won't like it, but their only way to refute it is to deny what you wrote, without being able to give the slightest fact-based argument.

      So, keep up the good work !!!

    • If god has nothing to do with your ancestral land, then you have no ancestral land in Palestine. There is absolutely no document, no title deed, no lease/buy contract, absolutely nothing, that gives Jews the right to Palestine.

      FYI, neither zionism, a racist ideology on a par with Nazism & Apartheid, represent world Jewry. That is another empty claim made by the zionists, as is the sick claim that zionism = Judaism.

      Sorry Boris, your hasbara drivel is based on hot air, if that.

  • Israel advances bill to conceal its overseas partners in suppressing BDS
    • The only reason "israeli parliament advances law to keep fight against BDS secret from public" is because it is fighting a losing battle, having to spend ever more money for diminishing returns.

      At the “Ambassadors Against BDS” conference in New York last month, former Israeli government advisor Gidi Grinstein said that “in 2016 our community probably invested 20 times … more resources in dealing with this problem compared to what we invested in 2010.”

      Yet despite these tens of millions of dollars spent combating BDS, Grinstein asked: “why are we not winning?”

    • @hophmi
      Right, free speech is only allowed when it concerns Muslim/Islam bashing, but when it concerns israel/zionists bashing it is antisemitism.

    • @echinococcus
      Words are often more powerful than actions.

    • Livni's brains are not much beyond those of a chicken, and her political savoir faire isn't much better.

    • The media have an important role to play, and one of those roles to increase understanding between cultures. Charlie Hebdo went out of its way to insult Islam, not because CH wanted to make a point about the religion but because it wanted to inflame an already tense situation between Muslims & Christians. CH's cartoons had absolutely nothing to do with free speech.

    • @Vera Gottlieb
      I understand your moral journey: my wife is Jewish & she went through the same journey, utterly disgusted by what zionism is & has made out of israel. She was reinforced about her feeling when she saw this Also take a look at the video that the article links to.

      I think it is important to bear in mind that zionism & Judaism are NOT the same thing, the former being a racist, totalitarian ideology that unscupulously used & still uses the latter as a tool to achieve their aims.

      Their aims:
      1. establishment of their own country - that's done, for which they had an excellent tool & alibi: the Jews & the Holocaust
      2. wipe out Palestine - that's done with the theft of the the territory they did not own pre- June 1967
      3. capture & annex Lebanon & Jordan - not done yet
      4. take a big piece of the Syrian cake if the Assad regime falls - may or may not get done
      5. destroy Iran - working on it through the US & its buffoon president
      6. control the whole Middle East through "divide & rule" - working on it.

      We antizionists should keep making the point that zionism has absolutely nothing to do with Judaism, it is a conflation successfully done by the zionists by needs to be exposed for what it is: a blatant lie. The jews who support israel blindly are in fact zionists, not even real jews despite their claims. And criticism of israel = criticism of zionism = NOT antisemitism.

    • David, your undertaking is an exemplary & courageous one, and I wish you & your lawyer every success with this.

      As a minor aside, I suggest that israelis who support israel's policies and behaviour vis-a-vis the Palestinians are not referred to as Jews but as Zionists. Zionists have always insisted on conflating the 2, and pretended to talk on behalf of all Jews. Both issues are a fallacy: Zionism is an ultra-conservative nationalist, racist ideology, that uses Judaism, past suffering of Jews, and current real antisemitism as tools, as a means to an end. And there are plenty of Jews who do not agree with Zionism nor with israel's policies & behaviour, and who consciously reject relocating to israel to support the Zionist cause.

      That is why it is also very important to make the point that, whenever relevant, criticism of israel has nothing to do with antisemitism but has everything to do with anti-zionism & anti-apartheid.

    • Spot on, that is the way to force israel to not just label correctly, but to change its policies & behaviour. In other words, we need comprehensive BDS.

  • 'You are thieves of history!' Hotovely tells Palestinians, waving books at them
    • @Mooser & @RoHa
      Even if Mooser knew about it a few years ago, the world does not turn around Mooser, so his knowing does not mean the rest of the world knows about it too. In other words, there is nothing wrong with repeating certain things a few years down the road because people generally have a short term memory.

    • @[email protected]
      You make an excellent point !!

    • Misterioso, you are spot on once again, and thanks a lot for bringing this to our attention. Amazing that the Calibre 3 camp was established as early as 2003, and only a small group of people know about it. Furthermore, there is obviously no limit to the depths of deprivation the nazionist "country" has sunk to. It is truly sickening.

      Going a step further, what would the world, yes the world, say if an Arab country would have camps like this with target pictures that looked like Jews.

    • @TerryHeaton
      Before 1948 israel did not exist, neither did "israelis". You can start history before 1948, but it does not get any better. Before the zionists set foot in Palestine, the Jews & Arabs in Palestine were living in harmony & peace.

      As soon as the zionists arrived they started with the implementation of their sick, Nazi like ideology, and Nazi methods of terrorism against what they saw as the "Untermenschen" (Palestinians), and useless Jews who did not want to accept zionism.

      israel is predicated on zionism, which is why it has become an ethnocratic apartheid state, which lacks any legitimacy in its current form.

    • So what????? What's the relevance of your comment?

    • The ranting & raving of Hotovely & her fellow government officials like 'yahu, Bennett, Liebermann & others clearly demonstrates that israel is well aware its actions, behaviour, and policies vis-a-vis the Palestinians lack any legitimacy. Someone who is sure of his/her position, and demonstrably so, does scream, shout, denigrate at others, he/she does not need to.

      israel, on the other hand, has had numerous UN resolutions against it, and has not been able to demonstrate cogently that its de facto annexations & apartheid system are right. It only behaves in a thuggish way when these things are questioned.

      Regarding the bible, apart from the fact of course that the bible does not constitute a historic document nor a land lease nor any other form of contract to base our earthly activities on, Jeremy R. Hammond has also proffered quotations from the bible itself which demonstrate the the Jews have no right to israel anymore.

      In his essay "Top Ten Myths About The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict", "Myth 8 - God gave the land to the Jews, so the Arabs are the occupiers", he summarises the bible quotations (that he gives in his essay to prove his point) as follows:

      "What Jewish and Christian Zionists omit from their Biblical arguments in favor of continued Israel occupation is that Yahweh also told the Hebrews, including the tribe of Judah (from whom the “Jews” are descended), that he would remove them from the land if they broke
      the covenant by rebelling against his commandments, which is precisely what occurs in the Bible.

      Thus, the theological argument for Zionism is not only bunk from a secular point of view, but is also a wholesale fabrication from a scriptural perspective, representing a continued rebelliousness against Yahweh and his Torah ...".

  • Israeli paper investigates 50-year-ago attack on 'USS Liberty,' while US papers leave it in the letters column
    • I always had my doubts about the real "liberal" nature of Haaretz; the Electronic Intifada's David Cronin nailed it - see

    • 2 points:

      * I don't understand why Mondoweiss refuses to take a position, when on many, if not all other, issues Mondoweiss always takes a position. What is the real reason Mondoweiss does not take position here? I think you owe it to your readers to give a proper, transparent explanation, even if that means upsetting certain readers, or admitting & explaining that in certain matters you have to go against your grain. But for heaven's sake, don't leave it dangling.

      * You end by saying "Credit Haaretz with the courage to raise the question ...."
      Why should we credit Haaretz for "raising" a question when it only concludes what suits the US-israel narrative? Haaretz has NOT contributed anything new to the discussion, only its "authoritative" voice to persuade doubters that it really was a mistake. So the only reason Haaretz "raised" the question was help bury the subject. I find your conclusion, if not exhortation, that Haaretz should credited disingenuous.

      I must say, this article makes me wonder about the real objectives of Mondoweiss. It is unlike your normal articles, and I just cannot understand the reasons.

  • London's Palestine Expo defies smear campaign attracting more than 15,000
    • @Misterioso
      Jonathan R. Hammond wrote an excellent essay on this entitled "The myth of the UN creation of Israel". A few HMG quotes from that essay:

      "Following the issuance of the UNSCOP report, the U.K. issued a statement declaring its agreement with the report’s recommendations, but adding that “if the Assembly should recommend a policy which is not acceptable to both Jews and Arabs, the United Kingdom
      Government would not feel able to implement it"."

      "The U.K. followed with a statement reiterating “that His Majesty’s Government could not play a major part in the implementation of a scheme that was not acceptable to both Arabs and Jews”."

      "A sub-committee to Ad Hoc Committee on the Palestinian Question was established by the General Assembly shortly after the issuance of the UNSCOP report in order to continue to study the problem and make recommendations. It found that “the General Assembly
      is not competent to recommend, still less to enforce, any solution other than the recognition of the independence of Palestine, and that the settlement of the future government of Palestine is a matter solely for the people of Palestine”."

      "It [the sub-committee] concluded further that the partition plan was “contrary to the principles of the Charter, and the United Nations have no power to give effect to it.” The U.N. could not deprive the majority of the people of Palestine of their territory and transfer it to the exclusive use of a minority in the country…. The United Nations Organization has no power to create a new State. Such a decision can only be taken by the free will of the people of the territories in question. That condition is not fulfilled in the case of the majority proposal, as it involves the establishment of a Jewish State in complete disregard of the wishes and interests of the Arabs of Palestine."

      "Nevertheless, the General Assembly passed Resolution 181."

      The only conclusion possible here (not quoting now): israel was created fraudulently by intentionally misinterpreting & abusing Res. 181. And what is sickening is that the rest of the world was persuaded by the zionists of the disingenuous interpretation of 181, and eventually recognised the country because of the Holocaust, another heavily abused subject. But the zionists did not stop there, they are even arguing they are entitled to all of Palestine, and do not even accept the Palestinian Arabs as a distinct ethnic group, and therefore do not recognise their right of self-determination. israel was recognised because of the terrible things that had been done to the Jews by the Nazis, but those same jews (except the noble, real Jews) have tweaked, fine-tuned, then implemented many of those Nazi policies against the Palestinians, incl. genocide (albeit incrementally, as Ilan Pappé calls it).

    • @MHughes976
      He admired them so much that he did not want them to come to Britain. Furthermore, at the time of his declaration he knew that legally it was null & void since Britain had no jurisdiction in Palestine. So the basis for channeling the Jews to Palestine away from Britain cannot have been motivated by anything else than antisemitism.

    • “The Balfour Declaration is an historic statement for which HMG does not intend to apologize. We are proud of our role in creating the State of Israel. The task now is to encourage moves towards peace.”

      And to think that Balfour himself was an antisemite, who drew up the Declaration for antisemitic reasons: he did not want all those Jews from central & eastern Europe coming into Britain.

      So, in good Hasbara style, Britain has twisted the facts into alternative to fabricate a beautiful, but totally mendacious narrative.

      What's more, that so-called task now to encourage moves towards peace is too little too late. Why did "noble" Britain, directly & indirectly responsible for a most of the mess in the Middle East, wait till now to "start" that task? What peace has been brought to the Palestinians so far anyway?

      The Balfour Declaration did NOT create israel, neither did the UN, resolution 181 did NOT authorise partition of Palestine, it only recommended it. israel intentionally abused 181 to create its state. israel never had the intention to share Palestine: the zionists' objective has always been to grab ALL of Palestine, as well as Lebanon & Jordan, as is now clear from declassified National Archive documents stored in Kew.

  • Israel charges UNESCO with 'Fake history'
    • An excellent debunk Jonathan, as usual with your articles. It is ironic that the Foreign ministry spokesman calls UNESCO an "irrelevant" organsation, yet for all its irrelevance the complete government is up in arms over it, and proceeds to distort facts into alternative facts, as it has done with all its activity in Palestine since the creation of israel.

  • US Jews must oppose Palestinian boycott, but boycott Israel and bring it to its knees over prayer at western wall
    • Ironically, according to NetanYahoo's new definition of antisemitism (i.e. any criticism of israel), Gordis is an antisemite. Perhaps a better label would be "selective antisemite".

    • Interesting. So you are saying implicitly that the Jews' values are also racism, misogyny, homophobia, worship of money and capital. Bout Eastlake did not even list those values.

      So, inadvertently, you have shown your real face. You are in fact the big antisemite here, and you don't even realise it.

  • Speaking up in times of apartheid, in Berlin
    • Ever since 1948 israel has had Germany & the Germans by the short & curlies. And that situation is likely to last for quite a while to come yet. But Germany is 1 country among a group of 26 others. It is still more worrisome that even the EU lacks the courage & the honesty to stand up to israel; instead the EU is getting ever closer to, ever more tolerant of the "country", its system, and its policies.

  • Israeli musicians to Thom Yorke: Canceling Radiohead show will disrupt Israel's 'business as usual' facade
    • It was not up to the Brits to work out a "partition deal", it was up to the zionists & the Palestinians to negotiate & come to an agreement. Partition was not even "worked out" by the UN, it was only recommended, not authorised.

      I agree that the UK & France made a mess of the way they carved up the ME, with those straight lines on the map that ignore natural or ethnic boundaries. Nevertheless, israel refuses the Palestinians their right to self-determination, even though the Palestinians have accepted the zionists their right to it.

      israel has NOT given up any strategic advantages in any of the wars, it has continued to steal ever more of Palestinians' land, thus adding to its strategic advantage. Like a hasbara troll you keep inverting facts, turning them into alternative facts.

      In all this you make 1 big mistake, or rather, you try to do standard zionist trick: conflate zionism with Judaism. The 2 are incompatible & mutually exclusive. zionism is racist & fascist, Judaism is not. israel is based on zionism, NOT on Judaism. So my focus is not on the Jews but on the zionists, the scourge of israel & the ME.

    • @DaBakr
      The Jewish nation of israel as a name of a country does NOT exist, nether does the "Land of israel"; the only official state is the state of israel. And that state does NOT have the right to exist, no states have a “right to exist”, without exceptions. States come and go, are formed, and broken up. South Sudan was created in 2011. The USSR ceased to exist in 1991. Czechoslovakia became Slovakia and the Czech Republic in 1993. Only individuals have rights, the right to exist & to self-determination in this case.

      The jews have the right to self-determination, but the NaZionist state denies the right to self-determination to the Palestinians. Instead, the NaZionist state has installed an Apartheid system, as officially established by the UN, and denies the Palestinians their right to self-determination. The right to self-determination is a right enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which the NaZonist state flouts.

      Your claim that Palestinians are lining up for israeli citizenship is Hasbara bull, and israel will not even grant them that for fear of losing the majority status & thus the racial purity of the "country" (where else have we seen that?).

      And even if Palestinians would be lining up, even if they have swimming & other rights, that still does NOT give israel the right of its Apartheid system, nor to flout international law, nor to stay in the Stolen Palestinian Territories. Nobody is denying israel its right to exist, that is just more Hasbara bull, but israel does deny the Palestinians their right to exist as individuals & their right to self-determination by implementing an incremental genocide. Those so-called millions of Palestinians who have no desire to to be subsumed in Palestine is a blatant lie, as is all of your Hasbara bull.

      This has nothing to do with jew-hatred or antisemitism, criticism of israel has absolutely nothing to do with that, your claim is just Hasbara bull once more. Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, the European Union, and other countries are criticised every day, without those countries themselves objecting to the mere issue of criticism; israel is not an exception and needs to be excoriated to the hilt. In its current form, and in its current geographic spread it needs to be dismantled & turned into a real democratic state with equal rights for all its citizens, instead of being the racist, cancerous, putrefying boil on the face of the earth it is at present.

    • @DaBakr
      As usual with those spewing out the standard Hasbara blurp, you are comparing apples with horses.
      Germany, China, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Libya were not founded fraudulently, they do not lack legitimacy like your beloved "country", nor have they been labelled by the UN as Apartheid states.

    • The jewish nation of israel does not exist, it does not occur on any map, is not registered with the UN, it is a Neverland.

      What does exist is israel, a "country" founded fraudulently - yes, Resolution 181 was abused with deliberate misinterpretation: it only recommends Partitio, it does NOT authorise it.
      That fraud of a "country" went on to steal the rest of the Palestinian territories, commencing the 1967 war as a subterfuge. The subsequent steps were Apartheid & incremental genocide.

      Thus your beloved "country" has absolutely NO LEGITIMACY in its current form. That does not mean it has no right to exist, it does, but not as a jewish nation because that means it is racist. It is racist because it does not accept the Palestinian right of self-determination.

      It needs to be dismantled from top to bottom & rebuilt into a real democracy, with equal rights for ALL, instead of the complete travesty of a democracy it currently is.

      A guy like Yorke who does not see that just shows that the only thing he does see is adoring fans treating him like a king, and raking in that bundle of money. Regarding the latter: israel has absolutely no shortage of cash to desperately try to buy legitimacy.

    • So far all appeals to this guy have fallen on deaf ears. There can be only 1 explanation: he is paid a bundle for his show & prefers to pocket the money to get richer still, rather than worry about a few lousy Palestinians in a far away place that he feels absolutely nothing for, in any case not as much as for his beloved dough.

  • US foreign policy in the Middle East
  • Israel cancels 250,000 Palestinian permits to enter Israel during Ramadan after deadly attack
    • This clearly shows that that fantastic wall they built to keep out the terrorists does not work. Hooray!! Will the "country" now consider upgrading its incremental genocide to all out genocide?

  • The issue isn't the 'occupation', it's Zionism
    • Jonathan, an excellent analysis once again. I would just like to add a small point to the 2nd paragraph re the UN's partition plan.

      Jeremy R. Hammond wrote an amazingly insightful essay entitled "The myth of the UN creation of Israel".

      In it he irrefutably shows, without any special "interpretation" of the wording, that

      "U.N. General Assembly Resolution 181 neither legally partitioned Palestine nor conferred upon the Zionist leadership any legal authority to unilaterally declare the existence of the Jewish state of Israel. It merely RECOMMENDED that the UNSCOP partition plan be accepted and implemented by the concerned parties. Nor could the General Assembly have legally partitioned Palestine or otherwise conferred legal authority for the creation of Israel to the Zionist leadership, as it simply had no such authority to confer.

      In sum, the popular claim that the U.N. “created” Israel is a myth, and Israel’s own claim in its founding document that U.N. Resolution 181 constituted legal authority for Israel’s creation, or otherwise constituted “recognition” by the U.N. of the “right” of the Zionist Jews to expropriate for themselves Arab land and deny to the majority Arab population of that land their own right to self-determination, is a patent fraud.

      Jeremy's essay forms part of a freely available ebook, which you can download after signing up to his newsletter here

      Full disclosure: I have no relation with Jeremy, neither commercial nor in any other way. I just stumbled across his website.

  • Israel provoked the Six-Day War in 1967, and it was not fighting for survival
    • Plus, in addition to its fraudulent fondation in 1948 & the concurrent land grab, it managed to steal more Palestinian territory, which in turn allowed it to install a NAZIonist apartheid system on the quiet. A great success indeed.

    • In 2010 Jeremy R. Hammind wrote a short essay on the same subject, demonstrating that the war was NOT pre-emptive. What I find most convincing in his essays are the words of 2 of israel's PMs, Yitzhak Rabin & Menachem Begin.

      YR to French newspaper Le Monde: “I do not think Nasser wanted war. The two divisions which he sent to the Sinai, on May 14, would not have been sufficient to start an offensive against israel. He knew it and we knew it.”

      MB in a speech: “In June 1967 we again had a choice. The Egyptian army concentrations in
      the Sinai approaches do not prove that Nasser was really about to attack us. We must be honest with ourselves. We decided to attack him.”

  • Wall of shame
    • Michael, an excellent article, well written, well argued, obviously well thought through. Sometimes it is hard to believe there are Jews like you left because the zio-fascists, incl. certain christians, scream loudest, are best funded, and drown out anyone else's voice, resorting very easily to violence the way the brown-shirts did.

      The zio-fascists have nothing to do with Judaism, they are just the ugly face of an ugly ideology that is no different from the ugly ideology in the 1st half of the 20th century they pretend to hate. If only more Jews like you would let themselves be heard .....

  • Trump may want a deal, but Israeli Jews are not interested
    • This article confirms that israel has morphed into a totalitarian-zio/fascist-antisemitic-landgrabbing-blackmailing-genocidal-apartheid(proven)-ethnotheocracy that is the only true travesty of democracy in the ME.
      It is a long moniker, but is describes the country comprehensively.

  • Dershowitz defames Gertrude Stein, Daniel Berrigan and Omar Barghouti
    • David, a very good article, there aren't enough such analyses about this vile character. This man actually does more harm than good in terms of non-Jews' perception of the Jews & israel.
      Perhaps 1 small criticism: calling the person "Dersh" sounds like an endearment to me, which I am sure is not your intention. Considering the man's character I personally would prefer a more debasing epithet, but that would be stooping to his low level. So why not stick to Dershowitz, seems more neutral. Just a thought :-)

  • The 'nation state of the Jewish people' bill is just more Apartheid with a veil

      He led us to believe he would be even-handed on Israel if elected, this shows that he would not. Besides, he comments about the need for US even-handed in the peace process show he is either naive, which I don't believe, or, at the end of the day he is just like the rest of them.

  • 100 senators throw their bodies down to end UN 'bias' against Israel
    • @James Canning
      israel does not need encouragement for that from the "100 treasonous whores" as Zara above calls them. israel has had the nod & wink from Trump to keep going with the settlements (though slowly-slowly) & to annex the West Bank.

    • @Misterioso
      Your quote from Ynetnews about Holocaust survivors living in deplorable conditions in israel is not surprising: Norman Finkelstein in his "Holocaust Industry" clearly shows how war reparations paid by Germany (government & companies) was a big extortion racket with only a small proportion of the proceeds going to the Holocaust victims.

    • Excellent comment, you hit the nail on the head. I would add to that:
      Nazi Germany & former imperial Japan were bombed into submission, getting the Dresden/Hiroshima/Nagasaki treatment. And what has israel received to date?

    • Jonathan, a well written article, as usual :-)) Keep up the good work !!!

  • Warren and Sanders stand firmly behind Trump officials -- on guess what issue?
    • The objective of the letter is totally understandable: israel must be left undisturbed to keep expanding the settlements, then annex the West Bank & the rest of the Palestinian territories, and continue with its incremental extermination of the Palestinians.

  • Invoking Bobby Sands and Mandela, 95 Israelis endorse Palestinian prisoners' hunger strike
    • Very nice, very touching. What is needed now is for Israeli Jews like the ones who compiled this letter to link up with like-minded Jews elsewhere, and with anti-occupation organisations like JVP, others, BDS, other non-violent Palestinian groups. This new body should cooperate & coordinate their activities, and put up BIG money to counter all of Israel's Hasbara activities effectively, and help BDS spread even faster. So: MONEY, COOPERATION, COORDINATION.

  • Hasbara-steria: Netanyahu ministers charge NYT with 'journalistic terror attack,' hunger striker with 'suicide terror attack'
    • israel is getting increasingly desperate to choke off any sign of even acknowledging the existence of Palestinians, who are seen by the conservatives (I am using a politically "correct" term) in israel & elsewhere as "Untermenschen", a term once reserved for the Jews.

      israel's frenzy can only be ascribed to its realisation that, as an ethnocratic racist state (founded on racist ideology: zionism), it lacks complete legitimacy in its current form: not its existence per sé (approved by the UN), but its administration, policies, treatment of Paestinians (officially exposed as Apartheid by the UN), theft of the Palestinian Territories, and its blatant & consistent flouting of international law. Hence Hasbara is working increasingly more overtime.

      1 point not mentioned here: Menachem Begin and Yitzak Shamir, amongst others, were once terrorists of no lesser degree that Marwan Barghouti, and they still rose to the rank of Prime Minister. In other words, as a jewish terrorist it is possible to run israel. Amazing.
