  • Updated: Remote-control gun installed atop wall near Bethlehem -- Ma'an
    • Yet the Palestinians weren't allowed that before zionists invaded. And aren't alliwed to know being forced to accept thugs living on their land. Also the law of return is unique among such laws as it is the only one that doesn't require one to have proof your from the country.

    • If they wanted peace why was it founded by naked conquest?

  • Palestinians can have an embassy in Jerusalem, but God forbid not a capital -- Israeli mayor
    • The analogy while silly was apr. You basicilly said if israel wasn't called israel well than it wouldn't exist. Which is moronic. I was mocking you. Destruction and eliminate are synonyms.

    • One not really. It be more accurate to say a Muslim one and why should jews be alliwed one inch of illegally gained territory?

    • Does that mean if I start calling my cat a dog it will cease to exist? A name change is not destruction

  • Alterman says BDS is helping Netanyahu
    • No you want to pay them to leave because jewish want is far more important than Arab legal rights to you. Israel wants to be safe quit it's 70 year war of conquest give Palestine back to the Palestinians pull back to a modified version of the proposed partition( that gerrymandered proposed version to get jews a majority is in no ones interest)and quit acting as if they are above the law and it will be safe. Continue being thugs and eventual they'll cross a line and israel will be destroyed and get a lot of people needlessly killed

    • Yes because you support israel threaten to nuke everybody if they want to go to their home historic Palestine. Rather than support thuggery and nuclear blackmail you could try supporting you know the law. And by the way the west doesn't need to threaten israel to end it. We quit propping up its economy and it will collapse in a decade or two on its own, nukes be damned.

    • You got a nice set of brass balls I'll give you that. No Judea and Samaria is not the historical name. It's your sense of jewish entitlement acting up again. First usurpers and denied conquerors don't get to name territories. Secondly the area is called the West Bank because of it's defining geographical feature the West Bank of the Jordan river. Thirdly the only reason the names standout historically is because through out history areas that small didn't have names of their one. You'll note their named after cities. As a geographical and political descriptor the West Bank has better validity than the phrasing of entitled zionists

  • Amid 'climate of fear' at Vassar, president comes out against 'action and protest' re Israel
    • boo hoo zionists have intimadated anyone who doesn't agree with them. that their uncomfortable that someone's coming back at them hard shouldn't mean we put the velvet gloves back on.

  • Simon Schama's Israel whitewash
    • I'm any state would have been successful if they were bankrolled the way israel was and is. As it stands israel economy is very unhealthy as it's dependent on such things continuing. If it would have had to succeed with out the bankrolling it would have collapsed decades ago

  • 6 DC heavyweights tell Kerry, Netanyahu in West Bank is like Putin in Crimea
    • Your clearly more concerned with attacking the west and apologizing for Russia. You've completely ignored what said to attack me. Have a nice day I'm done with you

    • So because I disagree with you I don't know anything bout it. Wasn't referring to the Russians on the based. Was referring to the unmarked russian made apcs roaming around Crimea blockading the Ukrainian bases. Or did you just forget about those? So before you decide to condescend make sure your your ducks are in a row

    • Your right their were no russian gun men in Crimea during the vote oh wait there were. Not saying they wouldn't have voted to go with Russia but to pretend their wasn't an element of intimidation involved is ignoring the facts

    • That's not self determination pumpkin that's illegally trying to prevent it

  • 66 years ago today 42 members of my family were slaughtered in Deir Yassin
    • Whether there was no shots fired at them or the equivalent to the entire red army shooting at them it's still illegal to kill civilians. Period. End of story. That you think somehow firing at genocidial thugs means they had to right to murder says some pretty terrible things about you

  • 'Poof' -- Kerry blames Israel for breakdown of talks (Updated)
    • There's only so far you can push sociopaths with nukes. That would be a dangerous game. To pull it off you'd need to shadow every israeli sub and severally beef missle defenses in Europe the Middle East and North Africa to get away with such belligerence. The Israelis aren't going to hem and haw if they know their is a good shot of having to tangle with militaries it knows will kick the crap out of it it's gonna start launching nukes at people. In their mind they conquered Palestine fair and square and if they can't keep as much as they and have the state fall or falter; their going to try and take as many people down with them as possible.

    • You understand that those"few" houses are a war crime?

  • Oren says Pollard 'sacrificed himself for the Jewish people'
  • It's the borders, stupid
  • Attacks on BDS sharpen as it gains traction in the Jewish community
    • Israel's not a democracy its a fascist state. they resemble democracy for the privilaged group. it doesn't protect civil liberties if your not jewish. just ask see how well arabs are able to basic things you take for granted... not well., its economy is entirely propped up bu foriegn aid and subsidies as well as the pillage of palestinian resources. Israel doesn't have a healthy economy. you cut out all the sweet heart deals and have to pay for the resources being pillaged you'd see how good the economy really is. and top tourist destinations? it doesn't even hit the top 20 in the world. its not even top 5 in the middle east. its like 60th I don't know about your definition of top tourist destination but for me you got to at least crack the top 25% they don't even do that. it purely a niche tourist market.

  • Liberal Zionists are the new front line against BDS
    • A majority of like what 2% that only existed due to gerrymandering is hardly legitimate. Secondly it has been repeatedly upheld that territorial integrity trumps a minority seceding from a territory even if they are the majority of the population in that subset. The territory was Palestine. The moment the mandate ended the full force of sovereignty lay with the Palestinian people. To divide Palestine against the wishes of the majority of those people is a violation of the principles if self determination and going by the crimes listed in the charter of the Nuremberg trials a war crime in being a crime against the peace the moment military action was used to enforce such a division. Not that we can undo it now but I don't think we should pretend it was perfectly legal. Not to mention it was generally agreed none of the former colonial possessions were to be divided( which is why Africa is so screwed up) so I fail to see the efforts to give a special benefit to conquers here should be viewed as legal

    • I still don't understand why some of israeli land gained through conquest is ok and some isn't what so special about telling everyone beforehand your planning on taking it? The israeli declaration of " independence" some makes claim land that not theirs and they have no legal claim to became theirs simply because they said so?

    • I still don't understand why some of israeli land gained through conquest is ok to you and some isn't what so special about telling everyone beforehand your planning on taking it? The israeli declaration of " independence" some makes claim land that not theirs and they have no legal claim to became theirs simply because they said so?

    • You'd have a point if israel as a whole didn't fund the settlements. When most of the money supporting them comes from israel proper( not that any of that was aquired legally) you need to hit the whole to cut off the pipe line of funding

    • You mean the russian puppet government. Poland was ruled by polish people serving push interests until the fall if the iron curtain

    • I find the arrogance and hypocrisy in the "liberal" Zionist view point terrible. Their worse than those to the right of them and the extremists at least their honest about their goals.

      "Their narrative rejects my self determination"
      well guess what your narrative rejects their right to self dermination which unlike yours was based on a want and was based on you know actually residing in Palestine. Why does your self determination trump theirs? Cause you have bigger guns that allowed you to conquer their country?

      " jews will not be the first people to relequish their right to self determination"

      Ok even if they did and even if their version of self determination is accurate their are ready plenty of people who have more or less given up those rights. And by the way why can't you give them up but it's ok for you to demand the Palestinians do?

  • Liberal Zionists turn on media darling Ari Shavit for promoting Netanyahu's bluff
    • If your going to call me delusional you could have at least had the moral courage to name me. And it's not unrealistic.

    • The Palestinian claim isn't similar to the jewish it's vastly superior. The decedents of the Palestinians go back to roman times and earlier. So to pretend the Palestinians are new comers compared to the jews is a lie

  • U.S. intel analysts doubt Israeli claim that captured weapons were headed to Gaza
    • To defend Arabs against israeli aggression. He'll israel has started most of the wars it was involved in

    • Because it's not like Arabs have a right to defend themselves doublely so against israel. Not everyone who opposes israel is a terrorist. Labeling everyone against you a terrorist only makes you look unhinged and childish

  • Ohio State Hillel member calls Desmond Tutu a 'neo Nazi' for criticizing Israel
  • D.C. scribes party with red wine, vinyl, and image of a terrorist
    • So israel didn't name roads after him? Oh wait they did. The applaud him as a national hero

    • Your right they are different begin was a terrorist who believed in the made up right of jewish self determination to steal Palestine. Duke was just a bigoted thug

  • Iymen Chehade fights Chicago school's cancellation of his class
    • Except the Muslims have the actual legal claim to the land were as israel has none

    • Did you really just compare teaching Zionist point of view a highly subjective ideology that is based on manipulating history rather than facts to the teaching of scientific theories that are fact actually backed by evidence? Political ideologies should never be taught fiat acompli

  • US Jewish leaders blast Harvard students on pro-Israel trip for taking photo at Arafat's tomb (Update)
    • They didn't die heroically they died stupidly in an uprising against the Roman Empire at its height. Even less intelligent was than had no military tradition of facing legionary infantry. Provoking a war you can't win isn't heroic it's stupid

  • Bloodbath in Jenin
    • You mean the israeli civilians illegally in occupied territory which even the international Red Cross admits on implication aren't protected under the fourth Geneva convention because their not legally allowed to be there? When anyone dies it's sad. But Israelis have brought these things upon themselves by waging war of conquest after war of conquest. Is it sad when they die yes but spare the wheedling for sympathy cause they don't deserve it. That's reserved for people who didn't die while commuting war crimes

  • Israeli embassy pressured Amnesty to cancel launch of 'apartheid' book -- Ben White
  • Netanyahu's map of 'Israel' annexes West Bank, leaves out Gaza
    • Perhaps I should have said the total largesse from foriegn countries. Israel entire economy is predicated on the billions of dollars in aid subsidies and shared research projects. The shared research on military projects alone is probably worth 10's of billions of dollars in its one right. Every dollar given to them. Between all the benefits they get from the one sided deals with the west and the raping of the Palestinian economy you probably got around 10% the GDP right there. If you include the cost of land and the related costs it goes much higher. Without all those benefits the israeli economy would collapse irrespective of trade. If countries would place embargoes on israel as well as quit propping up there economy with direct and indirect aide their economy would shatter

    • And than their is all the money Europe sends. And all the military research for israel that is funded in part and whole by other countries. The economic impact is far more than 3 billion and even that 3 billion has a 6 billion dollar impact. So no it's not 3 bil.

    • to bad the mandate was for a palestinian state and not a jewish one. but when did facts every prevent them from lying bout history

    • Well run? since when. its entire economy is built on foreign aid. Israel has never been is the US interests. a free palestinian sate in all of historic palesine where every one is equal is in the US interests. the US supports Israel because of domestic political infighting not foriegn policy. Israel keeps demanding money cause it doesn't want to have to pay for itself.

  • Israeli high school student leader calls youths' refusal to serve 'declaration of war'
    • I'm its impossible for everyone in israel to know someone killed in a sucide bombing the population and death toll numbers don't add up. Your try to overplay it to excuse Israel's brutal milantcy

  • Does Israel Have a Right to Exist as a Jewish State?: An excerpt from Ali Abunimah's 'The Battle for Justice in Palestine'
    • couple problems with that argument. I think we'll just ignore the argument that at the time conquest was a legal and legitimate means of aquiring territory cause thats just leads to anchronistic moralizing. even when palestinhe was a byzantine territory it was inhabitied by arabs. the muslim conquest of palestine was arabs conqueroring arabs so the argument your using to deny an ethnic groupo its rights because of religion fails. also rome got it by conqueroring persian so their claim wouldn't be valid anyway. palestine has always had an arab and proto-arab population. their the only people with any sort of real claim to the area. they were there at the begining so this foolish argument fails.

      secondly thanks to the mandate palestine was already recognized as an entity with territory meaning despite all of Israels conquesting the palestinians still have a valid claim to all of palestinie. whether or not they should press the claim is another issue entirely.

    • Do you what the word homeland means? you don't form one you either have one cause your a nation or you don't cause you don't. so you admit their is no jewish nation and Israel was a fabrication of rights to fill a want?

    • @jeffb
      it isn't a theory under international law it is an occupation. unilateral annexations have zero validity. you sit and laugh with Israeli thuggery but the US will wake up that Israel hurts and when that happens Israel is screwed and will reap what it has sown. just because thugs like yourself think they are above the law doesn't mean they are. eventualy your prescious Israelis are going to cross a line and a military solution will be on the table. history shows thugs don't do to well against real military's so be happy continue to flaunt the law. the Israel version of the nuremburg trials will eventually happen.

    • Theft doesn't confer rights to it. Funny how jewish thieves can't be removed from land that isn't legally theirs. But it perfectly ok for Palestinians who do to be removed. Another Zionist defending thuggery. And Palestinians do have a valid claim to all of Palestine israel had no claim to what's left

    • Whether or not your sure ror is enshrined in international law doesn't change the fact it is. That Israelis don't like it or can't accept it is irrelevant they are required to accept it under the law. You keep saying Palestinian demands for their rights aren't peace offerings well guess what israel demands for more land after it illegally conquered 3 quarters if Palestine aren't peace offerings. If you want peace maybe you should pressure your favorite state if thugs to actually make a concession for a change. That you and yours feel the Palestinians basic rights to be unacceptable show how war like and morally bankrupt you are. Minimum required for peace is ror for Palestinians who want to return and compensation for those that don't the removal of all the illegal terrorist settlers. Renouncing any and all claim to the west bank and gaza. And full Palestinian control of their territory. No demilitarized state they control their own resources their borders their airspace. It's also what international law requires of israel

    • I don't know about anyone else but to me your first paragraph comes across as condecending as all hell. Most palestinians are available for peace; just because most of them demand their basic human rights as enshrined in international law and the standard democracies are held to doesn't mean they don't want peace. The implication that their demands for those rights can't result in peace isn't indictment of them but of Israel.

  • University of Windsor President pressures Student Union to not ratify BDS referendum following demand from pro-Israel donor
  • Northeastern University SJP chapter suspended as members are subjected to police interrogation
    • they can't condone having people feeling targeted or intimindated so they targeted and intiminidated members of their community? wow thats down right orwellian. wow their copying Israeli thug behavior

  • Political Zionism is destroying a culture and a people, and intentionally so
    • their using the same strategy used by russia prussia and austria after the partitians of poland. you erase their history their connection to their country and hope they forget. renaming all the towns from their arabic names is a classic example of this.

    • there is nothing ethical in Israel actions they have consistently chosen to be as violent and brutal as they could possibly get away with. if they thought for a second their protector the US wouldn't turn on them for nuking somebody or finally completed their decades long quest of genocide against the palestinians and their judifacation of palestine they'd do it in a heart beat.

    • Slave religion? wow rather unhinged aren't. also there is no such thing as a jewish nation. its a religion with all the rights and privilges of such. but considering jews a nation is problamatic at best. hell the essential demand of jewish nationhood is treat us as a nation but don't treat anybody else meeting the same critera as such.

  • 'When I go into the class, I am preparing tomorrow's citizens for the next war'
    • only after being crushed militarily and being occupied. using germany as an example is suggesting you think israel needs to be conquered. which amiditly is probobly the only solution. they have been allowed to behave like sociopaths for so long only being completely militarily defeated is the only hope for peace. if not they will keep manufacturing wars of conquest.

    • well see the last time arabs fled from war zionists stole their homes. its kind of a reaccuring pattern. zionists start a war. arab civilians flee. zionists confiscate there homes and threten them with violence when they try and return. it happened in 48 it happened in 67. why shouldn't they expect it to happen again? they no if they leave they residency in historic palestine will be erased by thugs thieves terrorists and murderers.

  • Kerry (and NYT) carry water for Netanyahu on 'Jewish state' demand
    • exacty a group either is a nation or isn't. a group can just decide to become one after the etter part of 2000 years of not being one.

    • even if jews consituted a nation, something which I am most defintely not going to concede even for the sake of argument, it still wouldn't entitle them to a national right to self determination. that right has been linked to territories. or people like the palestinians who were violently expelled from their territories. their is nothing in the jewish make up that gives a national right to self determination. and even if they did Israel creation would still not be such a right because an act of conquest by its very nature cannot be an expression of self determination.

      Israel and the diea of jewish national self determination is essentially the anthesis of what real self determination actually constitutes.

  • Israeli ambassador's present to Obama -- settlement cufflinks!
    • actual there is evidence of arabs and proto arab people in the area of jerusalem for as long as jews were there so no jews did not in fact precede arabs in jerusalem.

  • Are you blind (to Palestinian rights)?
    • well minus the whole thing that technically Israel decleration of independence was a statement of intent to conqueror lands. but me and you will continue to disagree about that. I still stand by the assessment that all of ISrael was gained via war and therefore illegal.

    • no but they lived in the mandated state of palestine which Israel declared war on. Israel has no rights. ITs an illegall entity founded on an illegal attack on palestinian sovriegnty.

  • 'Our relationship to Israel causes dead Americans and enormous expense in fighting Muslims' -- Scheuer to Congress
    • if Israel never existed the arabs states stay pro western and become a southern flank on the ussr. if Israel never existed it would have benefited the US not other way around. alqaeda probably wouldn't have existed had Israel not existed.

    • first off you said the relationship not protecting. you can't change the yardstick when you dislike the answer.. the simple fact is that Israel is responsible for roughly the second most american deaths of any country in the region. when you look at unprovocked acts that lead to american deaths they tops the list. so yeah the american relationship with Israel has killed thousands of americans.

    • flat out wrong. depending on how indirect you want to get our relationship with Israel has cost anywhere from a couple hundred to thousands.

  • Girl rapper tells of sharing stairs to her Jerusalem house with Jewish settlers who flash pistols
  • 'If the world turns on us, we will go North Korea on them' -- say some Israelis
  • I thought this was a copperhead snake
    • not really you get tagged by a copperhead and survive without treatment. most north american venomous snakes aren't that big of threats venom wise when compared to african or asian snakes let alone sea snakes.

  • Helen Thomas dies
    • um please keep your own bigotry in check. I believe I said whatever the reason it didn't excuse their actions.

    • I don't usually considering people writing works of fiction even historical fiction as credible sources of history no matter how well researched.

    • did couldn't find anything. maybe a quick search of the usual anti-polish zionist sites blaming the holocaust on occupied poland may have something but a quick google search comes up with nada.

    • jews got screwed in poland post war. in poland jews were viewed as pro communism which at the time was viewed as the same as pro russian. being viewed as pro russian in poland since 1939 doesn't exactly endear one to the polish people for reason I'm sure are obvious. not that it excuses the reactions but people tend not to react well to people viewed as helping an enemy try to eradicate them.

    • except they never said that the jews should go back to palestine. but hey why should you pro Israel people start bothering with the truth now.

  • 'Times' ad rebrands Israel as western country without occupation
    • um the term western world refers to culture that originated in western europe or europe in general to a lesser extent. the us, canada, australia, and new zealand are considered part of the western world and are all out side of europe.

  • 'Peace Now' characterizes Israeli non-Jews as outside of 'mainstream' public opinion
    • right. somehow I doubt that. Israeli jews and arabs are very easy to tell apart. the attitude and actions are completely different.

  • The Har Homa Heat?: Meet the settlement-building family that owns the Miami Heat
    • so now i have another reason to dislike the heat. though come to think of it the way the big three came together in miami by circumventing the systems in place, the rank dishonesty in the specticle, as well as the idea of creating a huge parity all are in line with Israel's national values so not that surprising.

  • How Israeli apartheid is coming unstuck
    • MAybe because that's because all the mainstream parties in Israel are all about removing the palestinians from palestine. You can't complain about people refusing to vote for parties that actively seek to harm them?

    • not really because no to one my knowledge actualy believes Israel doesn't exist now should exist and the legality of its existence are their but its actuall existence not so much.

    • the right to vote is irrelevant without the ability to actualy vote for people who will represent your interests. reminds me of the simpsons episode( I believe it was a treehouse of horrors one) where earth is conquered by aliens and they were able to vote between 2 of them and while being beaten homer responds don't blame me I voted for the other one.

  • Palestinian activist Abir Kopty: Oslo should go, the peace process serves Israeli interests
    • "Palestine is not Israel. Israel cannot be independent and a part of Palestine." not entirely true. If Israeli territory is illegally aquired palestinian territory than technically it can be in palestine as illegally aquired lands are still considered to legally be owned by the legal owners. also the word palestine can refer to a state and a geographical area hence Israel can be entirely distinct from the state of palestine and still be in the geographical area of palestince kinda of like pakistan being part of the indian subcontinent while not being part of the state of india.

  • Creator of 'Two and a Half Men' says other Americans want to ship him to a concentration camp
    • If you want reconcilation don't say slanderous things like the poles assisted the nazis.

    • I'm sorry being called on your blatent prejudice where it comes from in determing how bad killings are. most people find your belittling ever other groups suffering offensive so you don't really have a leg to stand on. Your allowed to be outraged about killing of jews but when you get pissy when other groups are outraged against their suffering because oh dear they didn't suffer as much as we did doesn't make it your outraged it makes it angry that others feel they have suffered in a similiar matter.

    • No one is saying that but at some point you have been compensated enough which is I believe his point

    • until Israel stops telling the palestinians to get over it you don't have a point your just being a hypocrite. their are numerous instances of people's dealing with persecution in a generation and working on making sure they don't let it completely color the views and interactions with other groups. what your doing is just as harmful as all the anti semites who wish to hold jews to a higher standard. your demand to hold jews to a lower standard is just as harmful.

  • Tell Alicia Keys: Don't entertain apartheid
  • Updated: al-Aqsa Foundation discovers mass graves of Palestinians killed during the Nakba in Jaffa
    • Right because no even tried to point blame and manipulate evidence in a mass grave to pin the blame on some one else oh wait there was that whole kerfufle at kaytn less than a decade before. Wait weren't their jews who were in Palestine because they survived the picking of that massacre and went on to destert armed forces fighting the nazis to commit terrorist attacks against the government of a country fighting the nazis. You betcha

    • Um you just answered your own question unless u believe 30 is less than 12

    • Nice lie I assume that "attempted war of ahnilatation of 47-49" your referring to the war Zionist jews started to conqueror the country and than since your a bigot blamed the victims in?

  • Conjuring the 'Jewish community' to shut down debate of apartheid in San Francisco

  • Jewish philanthropies stay away from org dedicated to Yiddish culture because it doesn't focus on Israel or the Holocaust
    • Only in Russia was the polish language outlawed. The Russian were the worst by far

    • Funny you would mention what Russia did after the partitions of Poland considering your favorite thugocracy israel is try to do to the Palestinians what russia( and to lesser extent Austria and Prussia) tried to do to the polish: erase their very existence from history

  • Both Massad, and 'Open Zion', ignore the experience of Middle Eastern Jews
    • I'm sorry but his references to the article "Throw Away That Rusty Key" makes him just another jew trying to make out the palestinians have no claim to palestine and no right to return to their homes. it comes across heavily as typical zionist jewish elitism and self centeredness. what happened to the jews who were actually expelled( and lets be honest not all of the number claimed were expelled they chose to leave) wasn't any where near the same as what happened to the palestinians. the palestinians were brutally removed from their ethnic homeland with no place else to go and were shot if they attempted to return. the jews had a violent expansionistic state will to take them in and illegally give them other people's property.

  • Two friends meet for 5 minutes in Jerusalem
    • bs. the jews started the attacking the palestinians the terror you complain about was of the fear you and yours caused.

  • Washington Post's racism map omits Israel

  • International Criminal Court opens preliminary investigation into attack on Mavi Marmara
    • What invasion of israel there was no invasion I the war of Zionist aggression and conquest also known as the Israeli " war of independence". The only ones doing any invading than were the Israelis.

    • The settlements are war crimes commuted by genocidal people.

    • Actually the moment the mandate ended a Palestinian state came into existence and even if we take your stance they weren't a state sovereignty of the territory was universally recognized as belonging to them so they did have territory

  • Israeli airport sorts passengers with 'Jewish stickers' and 'Arab stickers'
