No problem then as Thompson and his wife are committed Zionists which is of course the main reason why he was chosen.
Hitler had a problem with too may Jews in Germany. Racists always have a problem with people of the wrong type:- they are a "security" threat or a "demographic" threat in Orwellian language. How exactly should Serbia solve the problem of Albanians have too many babies in Serbia? How should white South Africa have better solved the problem of too many blacks in South Africa? Apartheid? Democracy with equal rights? If you don't believe in the second option then you are a RACIST!
Perhaps Fox and CBS should ask Nuttyyahu why he has been continuously wrong for over 20 years in always claiming Iran is 2 years away from getting the bomb. Don't count on it though!
It says on his profile he was a "Cast Lead participant". If that's true then its likely he is a war criminal.
I see you are a war criminal as it states you engaged in the Cast Lead massacre on your profile. But I digress, in fact it should be ample reason for Israel to be banned from ALL sporting events like Apartheid South Africa was and Saudi Arabia should be for not allowing female athletes in case you claim I am using "double standards" with Israel. If in 19 Olympics only 2 athletes have been Arab then it must be because of blatant racism, no other explanation is possible.
Israeli sociologist Baruch Kimmerling used the term politicide in his book "Politicide: Sharon’s War Against the Palestinians" and in his articles. He defines it as "the politicide of the Palestinian people, a gradual but systematic attempt to cause their annihilation as an independent political and social entity."
So what you are saying is Jews have the right to be racist they are not very many of them! Talk about exceptionalism.
Arab Jews and Jews from non-white countries have always been regarded as low quality Jews by the Zionists. They wanted them for demographic reasons but wanted them to become like white people and to abandon their "primitive" culture. It is not thinking that Jews are all the same but trying to make all Jews the same.
How can you wipe out a country before it comes into existence? Typical hasbara! I suppose Red Indians tried to wipe out the United States when they were defending their land from the white man!
Israel has just sent tanks into the Sinai and therefore violated the Cap David accords. Egypt should expel the Zionist ambassador and declare the "peace" treaty dead!
What next Dick Cheney as head of Amnesty International? LOL
Shamalov-Berkovich and people like her should be put into re-education camps until they have been thoroughly de-Zionised.
Tel Aviv = Sun City. The city of apartheid!
You don't understand there is no way Israel is allowed to go to a major war without Washington's permission. Every single major war going back to 1967 Israel had to get approval from Washington. Take the 1982 invasion of Lebanon or the recent Gaza war Israel asked and got Washington's permission. Obama will not give permission for Israel to attack Iran and that's the end of it. Bibi may huff and puff and may try to persuade his friends in Washington to put pressure on Obama like he is doing, but Obama won't agree especially during election year. If Iran was such a threat and Ahmadinejad the new Hitler like Bibi has been saying for the last 5 years, why hasn't Israel already attacked Iran? Simple because Washington will not give permission!
There won't be any war. Israel's planes can barely reach Iran and even that is with having to re-fuel in mid air:- a very tricky manoeuvre. Even then they have to violate airspace and risk being shot down passing through several countries. It's all bluff. I don't believe Netenyahu who surprisingly is one Israeli leader who's never gone to war has got the guts to do it. Talk is cheap. Actions speak louder than words. If there is one person who does not want war more than anyone else its Obama as it would ruin his re-election chances.
Why does Israel not have a Constitution? Because it would have to abolish itself as a Zionist state. Someone who is not a Zionist but wants to become an Israeli citizen is forced to accept the ideology of Zionism wether they agree with it or not and that's the difference. What if to become a Russian citizen you had to swear allegiance to Communism or swear allegiance to Capitalism to become an American citizen? Zionism and democracy are not compatible. A Jewish and democratic state is an oxymoron. Tony Judt was right Zionism is an anarchism, a 19th century ideology stuck in the 21st century.
Would she have been committing a crime if she had visited the "terrorist" Nelson Mandela a few years ago? He was still recognized as a "terrorist" until just recently by the USA! Is a war criminal a "terrorist"? Well if that's the case then Ehud Barak is one!
Apartheid or Hafrada as the Zionists call it means seperation. Separate legal system, seperate schooling system, separate residential areas all enforced by checkpoints, passes, separate road system, unequal allocation of resources, racist laws in relation to marriage, residency, employment enforced by massacres, demolitions and expulsions over 60 years adds up to de facto and de jure apartheid. Israel is now being outed as an apartheid state, attempts to deny it are now seen as being as ridiculous as King Canute trying to stop the tide coming in.
When Israel invaded Lebanon in 1982 it killed 20,000 people. You seem to have forgotten them.
Lebanon is a republic like the USA, it has a constitution which guarantees the rights of the minority against the majority so far from being a bad example its a good example! Israel the only "democracy" in the middle east doesn't even have a constitution and has instigated far more violence than Lebanon.
There will be no war! Obama does not want $200 a barrel oil unless he wants to be a one term president. There will be no more UN sanctions either as Russia and China will not agree to it. There will be a lot of huffing and puffing but going to war against a country 3 times the size of Iraq is out of the question. Robert Gates the previous Defense Secretary ruled it out and so does the present one. Israel will not bomb Iran either they cannot and will not do anything without permission from Washington DC which will not be given.
Don't forget the so called Anti-Defamation League, which is now nothing but a blatant right wing Zionist organisation defending the Occupation and opposing equality.
Ali Abunimah in Electronic Intifada:-
"But if anything, Goldstone’s shameless pandering to Israel only adds credibility to his earlier work: if someone so anxious to defend Israel in spite of the facts could not even cover up its atrocious crimes in Gaza, then indeed there is a case for Israel’s war criminal leaders to answer and pursuing them must not stop until they are brought to justice".
The Palestinians should join all the other 18 UN organizations especially the ICC, to isolate and expose the Israelis as much as possible.
The Chinese have not built a separate road system for Tibetans to my knowledge. Tibetans are Chinese citizens though so its not apartheid. Nice try! Apartheid exists in the Zionist state though:- separate road system, separate judicial systems, unequal allocation of resources etc.
What does "enemy combatant" mean? Sounds like something out of George Orwell's 1984. There are people in the Republican Party like Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin who believe Julian Assange a journalist is an "enemy combatant" and should be killed. If your an "enemy combatant" the Geneva Conventions don't apply, that's why everyone in the Guatanamo Bay gulag is an "enemy combatant".
President or should I say Emperor Obama now has the right by executive law to kill absolutely anyone in the world without due process or any accountability on the grounds of being a "security risk" or an "enemy combatant" or just because Emperor Obama doesn't like them. Hitler, Stalin and Nero had such absolute powers!.
It's a criminal offence for a realtor in the USA to give racial profiling of a geographic area to a potential home buyer. In other words if a buyer says "I want to live in area where there are absolutely no Blacks" if the realtor answers affirmatively he commits a felony. No problem in apartheid Israel of course you have Jewish only roads, Jewish only colonies, Jewish National Fund land for Jews only and the new racist Admissions Committee Law equivalent to the Group Areas Act that was passed in South Africa in the dark days of apartheid.
Watch this documentary about Tony B-Liar as a "peace" envoy for the Quartet:-
link to youtube.com
"Since resigning in June 2007 Tony Blair has financially enriched himself more than any ex-Prime Minister ever. Reporter Peter Oborne reveals some of the sources of his new-found wealth, much of which comes from the Middle East.
On the day Tony Blair resigned as Prime Minister, he was appointed the official representative Envoy of the Quartet on the Middle East. By January 2009 he had set up Tony Blair Associates - his international consultancy - which handles multi-million pound contracts in the Middle East.
It is so secretive we don't know all the locations they do business in. Dispatches shows that at the same time as Blair is visiting Middle East leaders in his Quartet role he is receiving vast sums from some of them. If Blair represented the UK government, the EU, the IMF, the UN or the World Bank, this would not be permitted".
These fake "liberal" Zionists like Friedman are all the same. They are like the "liberal" white South Africans in apartheid South Africa who believed in rushing to create the bantustans to preserve it as a white state and then claimed they supported the right to self determination of the Blacks! But their racist colonial attitude is the same. As Bishop Tutu put it these people merely want to "polish the chains of apartheid".
If I was an American and this nutcase Perry became President I would emigrate. This is going too far. He's a medievalist. He says the theory of evolution has "some holes in it", he's a climate warming denier even as his state his burning up. He claims because he's a "Christian" he supports Israel, but it isn't Christian to support an apartheid state. Decent Americans need to wake up and stop this man turning the USA into a Christian Saudi Arabia. I am amazed that apart from a few loony Christian fundamentalists anyone take him seriously at all.
Your delusional! On the debt ceiling fiasco he let the Republicans walk all over him and is yet another example of his ineptitude. Politics can be a very dirty business, I don't think Obama understands how to pull the levers of power in order to get anything done, certainly 2 years experience as a community organizer was not much good. He just won't stand up and fight for what he believes in. He tries to please everybody but ends up pleasing nobody.
Obama sells himself more cheaply than a 10 dollar street hooker. He's as good as saying give me the campaign money to get re-elected and I will say whatever AIPAC wants me to say. To see the president of the USA supposedly the most powerful person in the world grovel is truly pathetic. He doesn't deserve a second term and is nothing but a useless lame duck.
What if the Security Council eventually fails to grant statehood, Abbas might then come under enormous pressure to go the GA from his own people and most likely other Arab states where he is bound to get a majority. Furthermore if Palestine is accepted as a "state" by the GA like the Vatican it in theory could join organisations like the International Criminal Court where it could then start making claims against Israel for violations of the Geneva Convention and crimes against humanity.
Barney is a traitor putting loyalty to a foreign state before the interests of the USA.
Saudi Arabia is plotting with China, Russia and other Gulf countries to end the Dollar as the world's reserve currency within 10 years as reported by Robert Fisk 2 years ago. Once that happens the special relationship between the USA and Saudi Arabia will be dead. I wonder what Ros-Lehtinen thinks about that?
Just come out. Tzipi Livni narrowly avoided arrest a couple of years ago whilst trying to come to the UK for war crimes. A magistrate in London was given prima facie evidence and immediately issued an arrest warrant. She was tipped off (probably by the British Government which hadn't yet got round yet to altering its procedures for arresting war criminals) and decided at the last minute not to come. A WikiLeaks cable seems to strongly implicate her for war crimes in Cast Lead:-
"Olmert and Livni are prepared to order what Olmert has called a "disproportionate" response to the rocket and mortar fire, while Barak prefers to test whether Hamas will accept and adhere to an Egyptian-mediated truce that could begin as early as February 5. Livni is reportedly
pushing for a decision to hit Hamas hard and she remains against an agreement with Hamas".

The USA and Israel are desperate to keep the question of Palestine being resolved at the UN and by international law specifically resolutions 242 and 194. They will try every dirty trick in the book but its important the Pals do not back down and fall into the trap of endless negotiations whilst still being under occupation like in the past.
There's has actually been a sea blockade of Gaza since 1967. Gaza is a port on the eastern Mediterranean. For thousands of years the port has been open and traded with ports across the Mediterranean until 1967. That means the closure of the port by Israel is for political reasons not security reasons. In other words its part of the occupation to keep Gazans completely dependent on Israel.
The position of the UN is not that the blockade is legal, its only the opinion of the people who wrote the report who admit by their own terms of reference they are not making any legal judgements nor are they qualified to do so. Only a body like the International Court of Justice can do that. NATO has made no judgement or comment on it at all and it certainly is not going to enforce any blockade by a non NATO member.
As a foreigner my observation and that of many others is that the USA can now no longer be regarded a liberal democracy. It is a plutocracy increasingly a theocracy. There is a cosy relationship between the corporate class who pay the campaign fees and the ruling political class. The fact that changing the president from Bush to a so called "liberal" Obama has not changed the policies of the US proves this. Why bother voting if it makes no difference?
If Israel attacks a Turkish ship in international waters it is an attack on NATO. NATO should then declare war on Israel for attacking a fellow member.
The ICJ is different from the ICC. Actually the ICJ has already made a unanimous ruling on the apartheid wall. The ICJ ruling is that it is illegal should be dismantled and Israel should pay compensation. The spineless PA has not done anything about it to highlight it though.
This is a smart move by Turkey unlike the PA it is not beholden to the USA or Israel and the Palmer Report is not legally binding but a ICJ ruling is.
The Palmer Report is not legally binding it says so in its Terms of Reference.
Golda Meir, when prime minister, said that the Palestinians did not exist, adding in 1971 that Israel's "borders are determined by where Jews live, not where there is a line on a map." At the same time she ordered that the Green Line, Israel's border until the 1967 war, be erased from all official maps. That's why for Israelis there is no occupation and there is only one state and its been like that for 40 years. But of course you don't read about this in the NY Times or from Thomas Friedman!
Not being American but if the Republican Party existed in a European country it would be classified as a far right party along the lines of fascists and racists like Jörg Haider, Geert Wilders or Le Pen with its extremists such as Perry, Bachman, Palin, West and Ros-Lehtinen. You have to hope people don't vote for such extremists in sufficient numbers so they don't ever get a majority to run a country unchecked which is usually the case. But the USA only has 2 parties and its frightening to think what these extremists could do if they got to power like start World War 3 with Iran?
West was involved in an incident during the Iraq war, Yahya Jhodri Hamoodi an Iraqi policeman was beaten by four soldiers from the 220th Field Artillery Battalion on the head and body. West then fired his pistol near Hamoodi's head, after which Hamoodi provided West with names and information, which Hamoodi later described as "meaningless information induced by fear and pain."
West was charged with violating articles 128 (assault) and 134 (general article) of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. During a hearing held as part of an Article 32 investigation in November 2003, West stated, "I know the method I used was not right, but I wanted to take care of my soldiers."The charges were ultimately referred to an Article 15 proceeding rather than court-martial, at which West was fined $5,000. West accepted the judgment and retired with full benefits in the summer of 2004. Asked if he would act differently under similar circumstances again, West testified, "If it's about the lives of my soldiers at stake, I'd go through hell with a gasoline can." In September 2010, West spoke in defense of a group of U.S. military personnel known as the "Leavenworth 10" who were convicted of war crimes.
I don't think they do! They have not been in occupation for over 40 years and many of them left voluntarily anyway. Iraq has paid Kuwait £20billion so far(and they are still required to pay them billions more). So that's at least £800 billion £20billion for each year of occupation and that does not include 1948 claims!
How much money was Iraq forced to pay Kuwait for its invasion and occupation which didn't last very long? If Israelis are forced to pay Palestinians the same rate for over 40 maybe even over 60 years of occupation the bill Israel gets is going to be astronomical!
You sound like an apologist for Slobodan Milosevic the Butcher of the Balkans! What are you going to say next that Hitler was not a bad guy! If Kosovo is part of Serbia how come 90% are not Serbs?
What happens to Israeli Palestinians who refuse to accept Lieberman's fascist loyalty oath but refuse to move to the Palestinian bantustan?
David Grossman a so called "liberal" Zionist supported the massacre of 1500 Palestinians in Cast Lead and the war against Lebanon and its massacre of hundreds of Lebanese civilians until his son got killed only then was he suddenly all against it! These so called "liberal" Zionists like Amos Oz or Uri Avnery are all the same. You are either a Zionist or anti-Zionist.
Zionists claim the "right of return" after 2000 years so why can't Palestinians after a mere 70 years!
So what this racist is doing isn't really all that different than what use to happen in South Africa. People in South Africa had to categorized as Blacks, Whites, Coloreds and Asians and someone had to decide which category each and every South Africa was which made it very problematic for mixed race people. If most Arabs were Black and most Jews White the racism and Apartheid nature of the Zionist state would be immediately obvious and impossible to suppress.
In Israel there are people who are "Jewish" like immigrants from the Soviet Union or Ethiopia but who's claim to Judaism was often very dubious but are not considered "Jewish" enough to get married with another Jew or get buried in a Jewish cemetery. Perhaps they are the equivalent to the Coloreds in South Africa and Arabs of course are equivalent to the Blacks!
What he said was the studies showed if a non-Jewish man and a Jewish woman have children the studies show they will not be Jewish! But if a Jewish woman has children with a non Jewish man the studies "show" the children will be Jewish "in terms of the gene of the woman's womb" as how he put it . This is pseudo-science. By what criteria do the studies show if a child is Jewish or not? Some genes are passed through the maternal line and some paternally. He then goes on to say "And this is how they determined if someone HAS THE JEWISH GENE OR NOT". I don't know Hebrew but this is how I understood it from the English translation, so a Hebrew speaker might correct me on this. The guy is obviously a sick racist, he is just using these studies to re-enforce his racist theories. He is a member of Shas, a very extreme religous party so this should not be surprising.
If that's the problem then people like you should leave and go back to the countries where you came from in the first place or to other accommodating countries. A million white South Africans emigrated after the fall of apartheid, a million pied noirs left Algeria for France. Once the settlers in a colonial state face loosing their colonial privileges more often than not they don't want to live in the same country which proves they never really belonged there in the first place.
Jewish Israelis are like White South Africans in the 1980's. Hit them in the wallet and they will throw in the towel. The answer more BDS!
It's amazing they managed to conceal the camera. If you think the women were treated badly look at this video of testimony as to how the men were treated from the Flotilla of last year:-

Don't you Zionists realize how insane racist and evil you come across to the outside world? Coloreds and Indians from 1950 to 1983 were denied the vote in South Africa(Blacks had been denied the vote even before then). Then the racist regime decided they could have a vote after all but to a separate "parliament" from white people but were these people consulted about this? How magnanimous of us whites, Afrikaners thought, we give the vote to the Indians and Coloreds and "self determination" to Blacks in separate "states" and they turn it down, how ungrateful of them! The Zionist plan is much the same bankrupt racist policy of the defunct Apartheid state, not for nothing was Israel the biggest supporter of Pretoria even offering to sell them nuclear weapons technology at one point.
Give the Arabs self determination in a toothless "parliament" in a "state" whilst the Zionist state keeps sovereignty over water, airspace, defense foreign policy and the currency just like the fake bantustans the South Africans tried to fool the rest of the world in believing were independent nations. But nobody is buying it apart from Zionists and their supporters so who do you think you are fooling?
Mamet's new book praises Sarah Palin's political approach and calls the decision to build an Islamic centre in the vicinity of Ground Zero, the former site of the World Trade Centre, "a cultural obscenity". He's a Zionist Islamophobic whack job of the likes of Pam Geller, Daniel Pipes, Geert Wilders or Melanie Phillips.
Israel will apologise for some minor "operational" mistakes but not for murdering 9 people hijacking a ship and abducting its passengers! I hope Turkey does not accept such an "apology".
As long as the occupation only effects Arabs so called "liberal" Zionists have been only too happy to look the other way and still claim Israel is a "democracy". Only when the occupation potentially effects Jewish Israelis such as with the boycott bill or loyalty oath does Israel cease to be a democracy in their eyes.
How come Goldberg and people like him never realized that an ethnocentric state can never be a democracy in the first place? It became obvious enough when South Africa was a white state and when the USA was under Jim Crow laws.
LOL! Isn't the Occupation a form of boycott? Israel boycotts Gaza from having a seaport an airport and being able to trade with the outside world, so why shouldn't the rest of the world boycott Israel for its criminality? What if a businessman from Gaza or the West Bank wants to export to Israel? He cannot do it, and hasn't been able to do it since 1967! Why Because of a BOYCOTT stupid!
And of course Murdoch is a fanatical Zionist and Neo-Conservative. War criminal Tony Bliar was on the phone to him throughout the Iraq war so Murdoch could brainwash the public with propaganda "proving" Iraq had weapons of mass destruction in his newspapers.
If the Israelis don't allow flotillas from Egypt, Egypt can cut off their gas!
The USA use to be an apartheid state. It stopped being an apartheid state only when people like Martin Luther King and hundreds of thousands of ordinary people challenged the apartheid or Jim Crow system as it was then known with a mass civil rights movement by doing things such as ignoring segregated lunch counters and organizing freedom rides to segregated areas which were dismissed as a "provocation" by the authorities. Similar freedom riders to Gaza are today dismissed as a "provocation". But in the end it worked.
Israeli apartheid will be beaten the same way not by politicians not by Barak Obama or "President" Abbas but by ordinary people, hundreds of thousands even millions of people all over the world. Bishop Tutu has said without the support of ordinary people across the world apartheid in South Africa could not have been defeated. All the tanks, F16s, white phosphorous, tear gas, water canons, howitzer shells and one ton bombs are useless against a mass movement of ordinary people.
The evidence is all too plain to see. The Knesset is passing more and more desperate measures worthy of the Soviet Union such as outlawing commemoration of the Nakba, making it illegal for Israeli citizens to support a boycott and using draconian emergency laws such as the notorious "administrative detention" an Orwellian term for imprisoning people without charge. It's claim to be the only "democracy" in the middle east now looks ridiculous. Do democracies fire on peaceful demonstrators or arrest and imprison people for arguing for equal rights? Of course not!
The question is are you going to be like the white supremacists who defended a failed racist illegitimate system or are you going to be on the right side of history?
I was watching Akiva Eldar on Al Jazeera English TV last night in which he said if the Israelis refuse to end the Occupation then the Palestinians should demand Israeli citizenship and equal rights! But then you don't get Al Jazeera in most of the USA unlike here in the UK where its available on every TV. You can watch it online though.
China is moving up the value chain:- it is increasingly moving away from making cheap low value goods to send principally to the USA and making more expensive high value goods which it wants to sell to Europe and elsewhere. Wen Jiabao the Chinese Prime Minister has just made a visit to several European states signing trade deals and agreed to buy European debt. The fawning way he was greeted said it all. As far Europeans are considered he is more important to them than the President of the USA is. If the Chinese wanted they could buy all the debt of Greece, Ireland and Portugal solving overnight Europe's fiscal problems. Can the USA do that? It could once after the Second World War like it did with the Marshall Plan. A new railway now goes from Central China to Germany loaded with trains with goods every day cutting the sea route which was 30 days down to just 11 days. For me the increasing irrelevance of the USA was exposed when Gates the outgoing Defense Secretary chastised other NATO states to increase military spending as the USA could not take the burden indefinitely. His words fell on deaf ears. European states face no outside military threat and are not going to increase military spending to fight Washington's wars, since they do not have the money even if they wanted to. At some point China will humiliate the USA and the world will know that there is a new Superpower. It maybe that China will aggressively push the Yuan to replace the Dollar as the world's reserve currency. If that were to happen, a distinct possibility within the next 20 years, the USA would loose its empire and its hegemony.
The Titanic was unsinkable until it sank!
That is exactly my point there is no "right to exist" recognized in international law only the "right to self determination". The term "right to exist" is only ever used in relation to Israel I have never heard it used in any other context!
Correction. Hamas say it would recognize Israel but not "Israel's right to exist". This is an Orwellian term first used by Henry Kissenger that has no meaning in international law. Most countries recognize other countries but they do not recognize their "right to exist" because only people collectively have rights like the right to self determination that states do not have. Did the Soviet Union or White Supremacist South Africa have a "right to exist" when they existed? Of course not! Recognizing their "right to exist" would have meant recognizing their right to oppress subjugated people and neither of these states exist anymore which is a good thing. Of course the Zionists have added another caveat added by Olmert in 2007 which even Obama now uses. Palestinians must now recognize Israel as a "Jewish" state which would be like White South Africans insisting Black South Africans recognize South Africa as a "White" state(which they also tried to make them do). Funny how they never insisted Egypt and Jordan recognizing Israel as a Jewish state before signing peace treaties with them!
Do you work for the Israeli Government on the Hasbara payroll? Are you a friend of "Marc" that appeared on YouTube recently claiming to be a “gay rights” activist pinkwashing Israel? Zionist trolls are everywhere desperately trying to pinkwash, greenwash and whitewash Israel. Whitewashing Israel doesn't work anymore, you cannot whitewash an apartheid state!
Socrates said that ignorance must be the root of all evil, because no one deliberately sets out to be bad. Jacobson has chosen to be ignorant about the reality of the occupation so in his deluded view Israel is completely and totally innocent in anything it does and it must be Palestinians that are bad.
Hafrada is Hebrew for separation. Apartheid is Afrikaans for separation. So what he is saying is Israel is an apartheid state by its founding and by policy. The Zionists use the same word without any shame, for example they use the term hafrada wall meaning the apartheid or separation wall(note not security wall!). So when activists use the word apartheid in relation to Israel they are using the same word the Zionists use all the time but in Hebrew.
It was the Business Community in South Africa that first demanded an end to apartheid. This is very good sign. It looks like elite people in Israel are now beginning to panic! Soon there could be flood of money, people and business out of Israel if something isn't resolved very quickly.
Just watch this video showing Netanyahu's speech being mixed with Lucas Koerner's arrest. I like it when Netenyahu says Israel is a real "democracy" with all the fawning Congressmen and then shows Lucas being grabbed and pinned to the ground by Zio police thugs for doing nothing more than peacefully protesting. Reminds you of the sort of incident that was only too typical of a certain European country in the 1930s which was by then very far from being a democracy!

Translation:- Israel must rush to create bantustans in order to preserve Israel as "Jewish state and democratic". Same policy the White Government had in South Africa in order to keep it as a "White and democratic state".
Spain has already said it will vote for statehood. Germany won't, Italy won't but France and the UK and others might or at least abstain. In any case it is irrelevant its about getting two thirds majority in the General Assembly and that the Palestinians have got that already.
The USA is now an Orwellian state. Obama and Netanyahu are masters of doublespeak:- saying one thing but meaning something completely different. For Netanyahu as for Obama, as for Orwell’s Big Brother, War is Peace and Freedom is Slavery and a proposed Palestinian "state" is a state without sovereignty.
The mother of Labour Party leader Ed Miliband Marion Kozak is a long-standing supporter of left-wing pro-Palestinian organisations. She is a signatory of the founding statements of both Jews for Justice for Palestinians (JfJfP) and Independent Jewish Voices (IJV). Miliband's Father Ralph was a friend of Joe Slovo and was heavily involved in the anti-Apartheid movement. Pressed on the issue Miliband has said he is a "critical" supporter of Israel.
Cameron is still a member of "Friends of Israel" as our 80% of Conservative MPs. It's a sort of British version of AIPAC though not as powerful. It is said it is almost impossible to become a member of the British cabinet unless your a "Friend of Israel" the Foreign Secretary William Hague for example has been a devoted member since he was 16. For me just as significant is that the leader of the Labour Party Edward Milliband is not a "Friend of Israel" member or a patron of the JNF unlike Gordon Brown and Tony Blair his predecessors who were fanatical Zionists. This despite the fact he is Jewish and his parents were refugees who escaped from Poland during the war.
White South Africa also withdrew from areas heavily populated by Blacks to create a gerrymandered white "majority" state. They didn't fool anyone and neither will the apartheid Zionist state. In fact the Zionist state and its apologists are now more desperate to create a Palestinian "state" than Palestinians are!
The way to deal with Zionist extremists like Spitzer is easy, just accuse them of being a Nakba denier and point out it is no different than being a Holocaust denier(which is a criminal offence in Germany).
Israel always needs a scapegoat to justify the West supporting it. Zionists have been telling us for 20 years that Iran is only 6 months away from the bomb whilst they have been secretly trading with them all along. Well I guess these facts throw in the trash can that Ahmadinejad is the new "Hitler".
Extremist Rabbi Shmuley Boteach who witnessed Rae being beaten up this is his take on his website blog:-
"Should I have participated in muting her? I had a split-second to decide.
Flashing through my mind as hands grabbed her from all sides were all the protesters against Israel that I had encountered in my eleven years as Rabbi at Oxford University. Twice we hosted Bibi at the University and twice hundreds of Palestinian students had been bused in from all over the UK to disrupt his speech. As I walked the chamber of the Oxford Union with Bibi at my side, hundreds of agitators thundered, “Netanyahu you should know, we support the PLO.” Wow, it even rhymed. Netanyahu left his police cordon and walked over to the protesters and invited them in, promising that they would be called on to ask questions. A significant number joined us and he responded patiently to their pointed barbs".....
"In his brilliant and impassioned AIPAC speech House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Israel’s most able defender and greatest friend in the US government, made the point that it’s not the ’67 borders that separate the Palestinians and Israelis. Rather, the conflict is all about values, specifically the Palestinian’s’ growing culture of death versus the Israeli culture of life. The Palestinians name public squares after terrorists. Mothers ululate when their sons blow themselves up on buses, taking little children with them. They teach their children in kindergarten and schools that Jews are hook-nosed and wicked. But the government of Israel trades hundreds of killer terrorists just to bury their fallen soldiers with dignity, gives every Arab-Israeli citizen complete and full human rights, and has consistently traded massive amounts of land in the slim hope that the Palestinians will sincerely wish to make peace".
The USA is now under dictatorship by AIPAC! Its President is not Barak Obama who although "elected" by the American people cannot even govern an independent foreign policy without having first to get approval from dictator Benjamin Netanyahu and his AIPAC Zionist Politburo. As with many dictatorships there is a fake democratic process. The AIPAC dictatorship controls two "independent" parties:- the Republicans and Democrats which are in effect one party:- the Republicrats. This can be seen whenever the AIPAC dictators issue an order nearly every Congressman and Senator no matter what party they belong to signs up to it without question. This would have done Saddam Hussein proud when 99% of Iraqis in Iraq "voted" for him in an free and fair "election". When are ordinary Americans going to realize this and overthrow this AIPAC dictatorship?
The apartheid state collapsed in 1989 in South Africa. Even PW Botha the last White Supremicist leader of the now defunct racist state knew the game was up and was ready to release Mandela when he had a heart attack and FW de Klerk became President. The question is when is the Zionist state going to collapse and who will be its FW de Klerk could it be Averham Burg perhaps? I think we are getting close and closer to this point but it is only a matter of time.
"There is no mainstream ideology in secular Israel which preaches for supremacy of jews over non-jews". Err isn't Zionism an ideology in Israel that preaches Jewish supremacy over non-Jews? You know Jewish only roads, Jewish only settlements privileged access to housing, land, pensions and opportunities that exclude non-Jews, think Jim Crow in Alabama in the 1930s and its very similar!
Imagine if 30 years ago there were 6 million White South Africans who lived in the USA and had an organisation called ASAPAC(American South Africa Public Affairs Committee) that was the most powerful lobbying organisation in the USA. No Congressmen, no Senator or President dared challenge this organisation. ASAPAC insisted South Africa should be recognized as a White and democratic state. Black South Africans could be given limited self determination in bantustans in order to preserve white privilige. Furthermore they had to recognize South Africa as a White state and if they didn't like it could go and live in Black states in Africa or re-settle in the bantustans. Suppose Obama was President at this time what's the betting he would be addressing ASAPAC telling Black South Africans they did not have the right to equality and had to accept South Africa as a White state?
Israel is a mafia state! The Don Bibi Netanyahu orders Barak Obama to keep giving him $3billion protection money a year or else and a veto in the UN Security Council to thwart any action against the Don's criminal operations. Obama meekly obeys the Don! LOL!
Nazi Germany was also founded on ethnic cleansing or should I say ethnic dry cleaning!
This reminds about Scotland. One third of Scottish people apparently want "independence" from England. But does the Scottish National Party who have the majority of seats in the Scottish parliament really want independence and is Scotland capable of being a viable independent state? The answer is no. The SNP is not even calling for a separate currency from England or even a separate Foreign policy and the Queen would still be head of state. Had Scotland been independent in 2008 two of the UK banks were in Scotland that needing bailing out which was possible for a country of 60 million but not 7 million. An independent Scotland would be in an even worse position than Greece is today and it was a banking collapse in 1707 that forced Scotland in to the union of the 2 countries. It is quite obvious that a Palestinian "state" that everyone talks about is not viable either. Palestinians and Israelis use the same currency, would a Palestinian "state" keep the Israeli currency as well and would its security and control of airspace be under the rule of the Knesset as Israelis seem to insist. Is it possible for 2 independent states to exist in such a tiny area. I think the answer is no as Meron Benvenisti former Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem has also come to this conclusion.
80% of people in Northern Ireland have almost no social interaction with members of the opposite community. Miles of "peace" walls still exist. Segregation in school and work places is entrenched. Everyone knows where a Republican area or Unionist area begin and ends and to keep to their area. Republicans watch Gaelic football and learnt to speak Irish, Unionists join the Orange Order and march in Flute Bands. Republicans vote Sinn Fein Unionists vote DUP. A "coalition" Government between Sinn Fein and the DUP is as absurd as one between Islamists and White Supremicists or Likud and Hamas. New hospitals and schools have to be built for each community even when building only one would make better economies of scale. Northern Ireland is not a good example of reconciliation between two longstanding feuding communities!
This Jewish extremist and racist should be fired from his job on the CUNY board, just as if say a member of the board was found to be a KKK supporter they should also be fired.
Israel is like the Wizard of Oz. Take away all the lies, deception and myths and what have you got left? The only "democracy" in the middle east turns out to be anything but a democracy, it's claim to want "peace" is anything but wanting peace, it's claim to be the "victim" is anything but being the victim, it's claim to have the most "moral" army in the world turns out to be the one of least moral armies in the world. Slowly the world is waking up and seeing the real Israel behind this facade.
Just imagine the howls of protest from the West if an Osama bin Laden Heritage Center was opened! But of course in the Orwellian world of Zionism Zionists terrorists are not terrorists. Instead of celebrating the blowing up of the King David Hotel or the massacre of Deir Yassin(completely mindless act of terrorism by any stretch of the imagination) the Osama bin Laden Heritage Center would have a special exhibition area about the fall of the twin towers and its role in ending the evil American Empire!
Has anyone else noticed she looks a bit like like Eva Braun? This is what she said about Cast Lead:- "Israel engaged real hooliganism in Gaza and I demanded it." A truly evil woman! I hope one day she stands trial at the Hague.
Balfour was a Scottish Orangeman. That's the reason the plan to colonize Jews in Palestine was described as a "Jewish Ulster".
There is a new pharaoh the dictator Field Marshal Tantawi!
Egypt's military depends on its dole check of $1.5 billion from the USA to pay for its salaries and equipment, plus Egypt has to import half its wheat from the USA at a subsidized price. Unfortunately this means the military will still rule Egypt despite the promise to hold "elections" in the near future and "suspend" the emergency laws. Revolutions are always in danger of being hijacked and it looks like this one has.
Here's the Samouni family's message to Goldstone on his explanation for the massacre of 27 members of their family as a "mistake":-

Unfortunately the British Government has just within the last day changed the law on Universal Jurisdiction. Israeli war criminals are now free to come and go as they please with complete impunity thanks to the Prime Minister David Cameron who is a fanatical Zionist(his Government also voted against the Goldstone Report claiming it was Hamas that started hostilities). He said changing the law would be one of the first things he would do if elected. Universal Jurisdiction still stands "claims" the Government but the Attorney General will now be able to veto any arrest warrant by a private prosecution on political grounds. This will apply no doubt to Mousa Kousa who will be given amnesty despite his blood drenched record including the Pan Am bombing of 1988 which he was almost certainly involved in.
Great analysis by Ilan Pappe in new article "Goldstone's shameful U-turn"
This is explains Goldstone's U-turn in a nutshell:-
"You cannot claim to be one(a Zionist) if you oppose the ideology of the apartheid State of Israel. You can remain one if you just rebuke the state for a certain criminal policy and fail to see the connection between the ideology and that policy. "I am a Zionist" is a declaration of loyalty to a frame of mind that cannot accept the 2009 Goldstone Report. You can either be a Zionist or blame Israel for war crimes and crimes against humanity -- if you do both, you will crack sooner rather than later".

Watch this video of Goldstone in 2009 stating Israel DELIBERATELY HIT CIVILIAN TARGETS. He says Israel has very precise weapons knew what targets it was bombing and these were civilian ones not military ones such as food factories:-
link to edition.cnn.com
The official name is "The United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict" its just become popularly known as the Goldstone Report which is incorrect as its the work of other people not just Goldstone.
Colonel Gadaffi and his regime are going to be investigated by the International Criminal Court apparently. Well why not Israel? What difference is Gaddafi's shelling and bombing of the people of Libya who are uprising against him any different than Israel's constant onslaught on the Palestinians over decades including Cast Lead?
Do you think Israelis should be forced to undergo a Zionist re-education program like members of a doomsday religious cult such as the followers of Jim Jones or David Koresh? I think Israel is a modern day Jonestown but with 200 nuclear bombs! The Israeli Jim Jones is Benjamin Netanyahu I swear just looking at him think and act he is clearly unbalanced. What on earth is going on the next flotilla to Gaza, the sinking of the Mavi Marmara perhaps?
Noam Chomsky criticized Goldstone and his report as being only very mildly critical of Israel when it came out. Many people believed the report was extremely damaging to Israel but it was not. As Chomsky so brilliantly pointed out but is still missed by many people on the Left, is that there was absolutely no justification for the Cast Lead War whatsoever. Goldstone deliberately omitted investigating this aspect merely stating "Israel has the right to self defense" as he would have had to come to the conclusion the war was illegal and not in self defense as Israel broke the ceasefire and refused to end the blockade. Had that been so it would have meant everything Israel did was illegal, in effect what Israel carried out was not a "war" but a massacre or pogrom. Now of course he can now excuse Israel for making a few token investigations where "mistakes" were made whilst condemning Hamas for not making any investigation without taking in to account that Israel is the aggressor not Hamas and without the huge disparity in power between the two sides.
According to Israel it had a Persian user's manual therefore proving it was therefore from Iran. Are the Iranians that stupid they would leave a Persian manual just lying around to incriminate them. I would like to see this "manual"! lol
How does anyone know for certain it was from Iran, it was a German owned ship and Liberia flagged? How does anyone know it was carrying arms at all? It was on its way to Egypt. The ship went from Syria to Turkey and would have been inspected(Turkey follows stringent EU regulations on ship inspections to prevent smuggling). Again the ship was hijacked in international waters breaking all maritime laws of the high sea. The crew apparently didn't know that "weapons" had somehow been smuggled on to the ship without their knowledge. The Turks somehow "failed" to inspect the ship properly. I believe there were no weapons at all on the ship and this has been cooked by Netanyahu to justify another attack on the next flotilla.
It is you who are lying. 90% of the land is for Jews only controlled by the JNF or ILA(beats South Africa where it was 87% of land was for whites). Schools are segregated Arabs get a Bantu education like use to exist in South Africa where under resourced schools and a curriculum in which Palestinian history and culture is banned. In South Africa they never had white only roads and no apartheid walls either.
Perhaps the USA should invade take over Mexico and start building white only roads linking together white Anglo only settlements and subject the Hispanic people to martial law like Palestinians are under. After all the USA has already done that in 40% what was once a much bigger Mexico so why not take the whole lot!
Anyone who wants to remain an Israeli citizen could now have to pass Lieberman's Fascist Loyalty Oath and have it revoked for being a "traitor". Any pretense of Israel being a democracy is now dead and buried. Anyone disagree?
The Committee Admissions Law is like the equivalent to the Group Areas Act of Apartheid South Africa dressed up in double speak and Orwellian language to appear its not what it is:- Arabrein Jewish only communities for Jews only. It's like Lieberman's proposed Fascist Loyalty Oath, it doesn't explicitly discriminate against Arabs but that's the ethnic group its most meant to target.
What is the difference between Israel kidnapping Dirar Abu Sisi and Hamas "kidnapping" Gilad Shalit? One was a soldier on an illegal incursion into Gaza to kill civilians and is being held as a legitimate prisoner of war whilst the other has been kidnapped and held against his will for no apparent reason other than he is Palestinian.
Not only do the Zionists intend on robbing the Palestinians of their land but even their food:- the Jaffa orange, humus and now falafel. I suppose its like potatoes, maize and maple syrup which all come from indigenous Americans but are now considered "white" people's food.
55% people dislike North Korea, 59% dislike Iran and 49% dislike Israel. That makes Israel the fourth least liked country in the world after North Korea, Iran and Pakistan! Perhaps BDS is begining to work after all.
Golda Meir ordered the Green Line to be erased from all maps of Israel in 1973. Ezer Weizman once said the Palestinians can never be allowed an independent state because their dream would be always be to take back the rest of Palestine and drive Israelis into the Mediterranean. Shimon Peres once said their can never be a Palestinian state. Yitzhak Rabin never agreed to one either and he was never a "dove". The Oslo accords says nothing about any creation of a Palestinian state. Ariel Sharon once told the Italian Prime Minister that the South African bantustan model would be copied to contain the Palestinians in "cantons". The Likud Charter states Palestinians do not have the right to self determination in "Judea and Samaria". Avigdor Lieberman states the Golan Heights belong to Israel as its original annexation to Syria was incidental and that it was a "mistake" by Sykes and Picot. Time to bury this "2 state solution" nonsense once and for all!
Take a look of this poll taken in 2006 in Spain and the USA about the time of the Second Lebanon War in this article on this link:-
link to economist.com
It found 48% of Americans supported Israel as against 13% for Palestinians.
In Spain however only 9% sympathised with the Israelis and 32% with the Palestinians almost the reverse as it is in the USA. A similar poll would likely yield a similar result in most other European countries such as France, Italy, UK etc. And note this is BEFORE Cast Lead and before the Flotilla incident and before the European Parliament(admittedly a fairly toothless organisation) voted to endorse the Goldstone Report unlike the US Congress.
On the other hand in Europe support for Israel has nosedived amongst ordinary people. The most Zionist country in Europe is probably the Netherlands where Geert Wilders comes from and Islamophia is endemic but otherwise any opinion poll would show the vast majority of people are more sympathetic towards Palestinians than Israelis. In the USA the problem I think is with the mainstream media the fact Al Jazeera is not commonly available and 9/11 turned many Americans against the Arab and Muslim world.
He can always speak via a video link. George Galloway did the same when he was refused entry to Canada!
I disagree with this analysis. I think the regime has one fundamental weakness that could be its undoing and that is the nature of its army. The Egyptian army is mostly an army of conscripts who have to serve 3 years and are very poorly paid. There is no way these soldiers are going to fire at protesters any order like that would be refused by the vast majority of them. Once the police fail to stop the protesters in any oppressive regime only the army can be relied upon to act with overwhelming force and brutality as happened in Tiananmen Square in China in 1989. But only a highly professional army well trained, highly paid and loyal to the regime can be relied on to do this, something the Egyptian army definitely is not in the lower ranks. The impotence of the Egyptian army was seen recently when a high ranking General tried to persuade the protesters to leave Tahrir square but they just ignored him and howled him down. Of course this is not the same as Tunisia where the regime could be toppled in a few weeks. The Egyptian regime is far more resilient, determined and brutal and will be a much harder nut for the protesters than was the case in Tunisia. They need to stick it out for the long term organize and present a united front as far as possible against the regime.
