  • 'NYT' and Matthews warn that Netanyahu speech to Congress could lead US to war
  • Obama reported to be looking into settler attack on State Dep't officials, even as NYT buries the story
    • i believe barghouti would have won.

      as to would have been a good president, i also believe so. he certainly could not have been worst than abbas and the current pa as it is. i know, this is a low bar but hey, at least we have a bar ;-))))

      overall, having been a "son of the intifada", born and raised under occupation, barghouti would have a different and better perspective. and he would certainly not be negotiating with himself as abbas and the current pa are doing. just imagine they put down all the cards out there. now that becomes the starting point of any discussion. pretty stupid if you ask me.

      another proof that barghouti would have been good for Palestine is the fact that the zionists put him away since they saw and continue to see him as a real threat. and abbas and the pa see him as an even bigger threat. that is why they never put him on top of the agenda of any discussion, negotiation, security arrangement, etc. with the zionists. shameful! they should have said we do and say nothing about anything unless barghouti is out.

    • No more elections please. Will only lengthen the colonization of Palestine.

      Grass-roots action demanding 1S1P1V is the only way.

    • i saw it this morning on times of israel. apparently abbas contacted his masters the shin bet to verify the story and if it was authorized. abbas's buddies the shin bet told him that nutnyahoo didn't authorize it and don't approve it. it seems abbas was happy with that response.

      poor abbas, doesn't even know when he's being played. time to go! shut down the pa.

    • time for obama and the west to realize that the zionist entity has become a JINGOIST.

      rivlin and burg already realize it.
      rivlin - link to newyorker.com
      burg - link to timesofisrael.com

      oxford "extreme patriotism, especially in the form of aggressive or warlike foreign policy"

      merriam-wesbter "the feelings and beliefs of people who think that their country is always right and who are in favor of aggressive acts against other countries. extreme chauvinism or nationalism marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy"

      vocabulary.com "Jingoists really dislike people from outside their own borders. Jingoism is an extreme form of patriotism that often calls for violence towards foreigners and foreign countries. Patriotism — a love for one's country — can, in certain cases, turn nasty and go beyond wishing for the welfare of one's own homeland. That's when a patriot becomes a nationalist. From there, it's only a short step to becoming a jingoist, one who not only waves the flag of their country but believes that all other people are threats and should be treated as such. An obvious example of a jingoist was Adolf Hitler, who stirred up fear and anger towards outsiders that led to world war...and much worse."

      today's poster child of JINGOISM is the ZIONIST ENTITY as attested by rivlin and burg.

      qed.

    • the sad part of the story is that the zionist behavior is made possible, allowed, and supported by the usa. obama was the main cheerleader of this arrogant attitude of the zionists always declaring that "our support for israel is unshakeable". talk bout giving a carte blanche.

      after pa filed for icc, obama said there will be consequences to the pa. essentially blackmail. this gave yet another green light to the zionists to stop the tax payments and will follow with other acts.

      1S1P1V. ICC/ICJ. BDS.

      US OUT.....

  • Couldn't there be just one 'NYT' columnist who was critical of Israel? (No)
    • nyt is considered the bastion of liberalism and civil rights among all press organizations. of course, that is everywhere except Palestine. nyt is more zionist than the zionists in the zionist entity itself. lol.

  • Israeli settlers attack US consulate convoy in the West Bank (Updated)
    • this incident proves once again, if another proof was needed, that zionist colonialists are gone mad. the icc awaits.

  • Dershowitz named in lawsuit alleging abuse of underage sex slave
    • seanmcbride, thanks for this.

    • yes it does. showing how conniving and devious he is!!

      now he's getting a taste of his own medicine................ lawsuit! poetic justice.

    • there we go again, anti-semitism!

      arabs and jews everywhere must demand this guy stop abusing the word anti-semitism.

  • AIPAC celebrates Congress for laws that will 'dramatically strengthen bond between US and Israel'
    • Boomer, thanks a lot for this post. Thanks for your support as well.

      I have gone from a total believer in the USA and its declared intentions to justly resolve the Palestine/Israel conflict, to a total nonbeliever 100% disappointed in the USA and now doubting its words since its actions reveal its true intentions which are TOTALLY aligned with the zionists and the colonialists.

      Being beaten over the head over and over and over with the same facts and acts make one change her mind!!!!!!!!

      Some of these facts and acts:
      51 USA vetoes in the UNSC against Palestine.
      Billions annually to enable the crimes of the zionists against my people.
      Over $150B to entrench the occupation.
      Bullying, threatening, and blackmailing the oppressed party to accept the dictates of the zios.
      Giving weapons and instruments of murder, as well as "storing" free weapons in israel.
      Congress being totally in the pocket of the zios.
      more. more. more.

    • ivri, thanks for this.

      the time for F2P has long passed. there was a time period about 30 years ago or so where a CONfederation between palestine, jordan, and israel would have been feasible. too much has happened sine then that even Palestinian hearts got hardened for such a compromise.

      i was a so-called "moderate" in the past but now i believe in 1S1P1V as the only path forward. why should i give up on my land, houses, and property in what is now "israel proper" and have someone else from poland or russia own them and live in them. they are mine and i want them back. my grandparents poured their hearts into them and acquired and built these properties with blood, swear, and tears. i can't have a foreigner who never lived here take them. i and my family have been here for centuries.

      so bottom line, F2P is a non-started today. the zionists got too greedy and too criminal for it to happen now.

      1S1P1V, that's what it is ivri. no other path.

    • observing all these us republican pols meeting with zionist leaders of the zionist entity over the past few weeks leads me to conclude that

      aipac replaced iowa!!!!!

      us presidential candidates used to test the waters by visiting iowa. now they do it by visiting the zionist entity.

      and we wishfully think aipac is losing power. yeah, dream on.

      1S1P1V, the only way forward.

  • David Brooks says 'people from around the world' can serve in Israeli military
  • 'Spiral,' 'threat,' 'polarization,' or 'full-scale popular campaign for Palestinian freedom' -- reactions to the ICC move
    • Let the talking end and the actions begin.

      us/uk/australia/canada MUST NOT be part of any engagement by the Palestinians. they are more zionists than the zionists and no longer have a place at the table.

  • Fireworks in Ramallah, as Abbas signs treaty to join International Criminal Court
    • Walid, you're 100% right. Diana and Michael were pushed aside by the zios and the traitors pa agreed. in fact, i believe they wanted it to happen more than the zios because these two were themselves more of a threat to the pa itself and some of its entrenched figures. they both remind me of how hanan ashrawi was in her younger days, before she was brought "in line".

    • Looks like my 2015 wish number 2 may happen soon....

      Abbas seeks to re-submit statehood bid to UN Security Council
      link to ynetnews.com

      walid, you may be right, wish five should occur right away. even eraket is finally acknowledging that his and pa's mere existence depends on the whims of their masters nutnyahoo and the zionist criminals.

      Erekat hints at dissolution of Palestinian Authority after Israel withholds tax funds
      link to jpost.com

      My wishes for 2015:
      1) File for ICC/ICJ and other UN organizations right away. CHECK.
      2) With Jordan, resubmit the same UNSC resolution right away.
      3) After the usa veto, publicly tell usa we no longer deal with them on this matter since they are partial to zionists.
      4) Ask France and Luxembourg to formally recognize Palestine.
      5) Shut down pa and give the keys to the colonial occupier.

    • Bornajoo and Annie, it's January 1 and I am still waiting for Jordan to re-submit the resolution so we get 10-11 votes and force a us veto. Maybe I'm dreaming but this is a must in my opinion. This way, abbas and the pa can dispel any thought that they were just playing games to avoid a us veto.

      My wishes for 2015:
      1) File for ICC/ICJ and other UN organizations right away. CHECK.
      2) With Jordan, resubmit the same UNSC resolution right away.
      3) After the usa veto, publicly tell usa we no longer deal with them on this matter since they are partial to zionists.

    • “will badly damage atmosphere with the very people with whom they ultimately need to make peace"

      Rathke is being silly, a liar, a coward, and a zionist slave just like the usa government and oabama/kerry. how about zionist crimes damaging the atmosphere with whom they would ultimately need to make peace??? How about the million "escalatory steps damaging the atmosphere" that the zionists take every day in occupied Palestine - continued colonization, murder, theft of land, hampering the movement of people, wrongful imprisonment, no due process, military occupation, economic blackmail, human rights violations, torture, civil rights denials, etc. etc. etc.

      what has the usa done to help us in our cause. NOTHING. Totally siding with the zionists. SHAME ON YOU. Instead, you cowardly speak against the oppressed, occupied, colonized, and aggrieved party by saying that Palestinians seeking justice at the ICC is negative and bad. How dare the Palestinians seek justice and peace?!! Pathetic.

      just read the arrogance, racism, hatred, supremacism, and lies in what he and other people are saying. unbelievable.

      shoemer and other usa senators and politicians are more zionist than the zionists, better be representing zionists in the kinesset. poor american people having such bad people represent them. shomer and other us-zio-politicians threatening to defund Palestinian organizations for DARING to seek justice and peace.

      bolton spews lies and silliness by saying we are not a state while 98% of the world's population and all states in the world (except 7 zion-controlled countries) say and acknowledge that we are a state.

      bottom line is that zionists are already fearful!! i'm sure us government officials are concerned too as they may be dragged into the ICC/ICJ for assisting, abiding, supporting, and supplying the zionists criminals. lol. we're just getting started down this new path of justice.

      to those who invoke oslo and say Palestinians are breaking it, you better go check and see how the zionist regime is breaking everything in oslo.

      to those talking about unilateral moves, you better see what the zionist regime does each and every day in occupied Palestine. all illegal and criminal acts.

      to those saying the zionists will sue the Palestinians, this is like the nazis suing the jews for driving the nazis to commit crimes against humanity. lol.

      ICC/ICJ is coming at you zionists!

  • Palestinian resolution fails at the Security Council, U.S. votes against 'staged confrontation' at the UN
    • Maybe even President Abbas got finally fed up of the us.

    • Absolutely right ritzl, it is the PLO. Formally and legally, the PLO is the ONLY representative of the Palestinian people. The PA is a contraption of the ailed Oslo disaster. President Abbas signed that as the Executive Chairman of the PLO. The PA is a useless entity, serving only the interests of zionists.

    • Good end to the year. Happy New Year!!

      VIVA PALESTINA!!!!!!

    • Some movement.............. I just learned that abbas signed to join ICC, in total 20 new organizations.

      It seems number one of the five items I listed in an earlier post did occur (see below).

      1) File for ICC/ICJ and other UN organizations right away. CHECK.
      2) Shut down the pa, and hand over the keys to the colonial occupier.
      3) Explicitly state we no longer deal with the us on this matter as the us is more zionist than the kenesset and cannot be a fair mediator. Proofs galore.
      4) Request Jordan to re-submit the same resolution on jan 1.
      5) Request France and Luxembourg to formally recognize The State of Palestine.

      And one other thing I read just now: the zionist regime had the balls to summon the French Ambassador for questioning on their vote. The arrogance..........

    • To my friends and co-posters here who think getting under 9 votes was by design, I totally and absolutely respect your views but I kindly disagree.

      seafoid, you're right, even with 11 votes, the outcome would be the same as the us will veto. But it would have made a difference: put on the record FOR THE LAST TIME that the us is opposed to what itself says it wants (2 states, peace, blah blah blah).

      obama/kerry/power have all proven they are spineless slaves of the zionists.

      abbas and (most of the) pa in his inner circle are a bunch of corrupt cowardly cabal. They knew 100% it would fail and wanted to rush it and avoid to have the us to veto. Otherwise, why not WAIT TWO DAYS?????

      It's now almost 5:00pm and no word on a decision for next steps. For this corrupt cowardly cabal to redeem itself, here is what they must do TODAY and nothing less:
      1) File for ICC/ICJ and other UN organizations right away.
      2) Shut down the pa, and hand over the keys to the colonial occupier.
      3) Explicitly state we no longer deal with the us on this matter as the us is more zionist than the kenesset and cannot be a fair mediator. Proofs galore.
      4) Request Jordan to re-submit the same resolution on jan 1
      5) Request France and Luxembourg to formally recognize The State of Palestine

    • Kay24, the usa TOTALLY understands ALL parts of it.

      the zionist regime and usa are 100% aligned on their true intentions not to ever allow a Palestinian state. Crystal clear for those who want to see the truth, sadly.

    • "preposterous, unilateral proposal". Coming from a zionist criminal, priceless!!!!!!!!!!

    • We have been waiting for decades to get our state so waiting TWO days would have given us 10 even 11 YES votes.

      What a shameful charade.

  • Updated Security Council resolution calls for East Jerusalem as Palestinian capital, Israel says UN creating 'second Hamastan'
    • President Abbas signed the ICC and 20 other organizations. Game changer, hopefully.

      Good end to the year. Happy New Year!!

      VIVA PALESTINA!!!!!!

    • Walid, the thing is, I've heard my grandparents ay the same thing. Only if we have good leaders. Maybe one day. Next year will be different. My grandparents are long gone (god bless their souls), and sadly me and father kept repeating the same words.

      But enough is enough. It is not the leaders. It is the PEOPLE. And here is where I say to my Palestinian brothers and sisters: If we TRULY WANT a Palestinian state, then WE CAN make it happen. The sad reality it seems we don't really want it. The billions flowing from international donors have sedated and drugged the national interest and dream. But soon the drug will ware off................... So back to us, do we want it?

      If not, then 1S1P1V is the eventual outcome. I personally am TOTALLY for it as I see it to be the only just, fair, logical, feasible, achievable, and sustainable way forward. So if we all believe 1S1P1V is the answer, let's then stop this "peace process" charade and build towards that 1S1P1V solution.

    • Walid, if we can do nothing, then it's time to pack it up....

    • ritzl, I hope you're right. We shall all find out soon, very soon.

    • Thank you Annie.

    • ICC/ICJ will be a positive step on balance since Palestinian grievances will trump whatever the zionists will cook since they are the aggressor. This is like the thief in your house suing you for not allowing to stay in your house. LOL.

      What will liberate Palestine is TIME, which will lead to 1S1P1V.

      If we want it sooner, then all of us must participate in a peaceful grassroot intifada, demonstrating and marching every day across all of Palestine, and also asking all supporters in the world to march towards Palestine through Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt, and from the sea and into all zionist airports.

      I am certain that with such peaceful demonstrations and marches, the occupation will end in weeks if not days.

      All of this starts tomorrow morning with the Palestinians demanding abbas and pa to resign.

    • ritzl, Annie, Whizdom, and Bornajoo, oh how much I wish you are right in your optimism and next steps. But the facts, evidence, and data from the past point to the contrary. Nothing of substance will follow.

      Bottom line: Palestinians do not need any justification or a "failed" UNSC resolution to join ICC/ICJ. This is our right. Just as is the right of return, the right not to have illegal squatters on our land, the right for freedom and justice and human rights. We don;t need nobody's permission or agreement to go to ICC/ICJ.

      The problem is that abbas and the pa never did any act of courage and in support of Palestine. They are just zionist agents, pure and simple.

      Proof? Had they waited TWO DAYS, we would have gotten 10 maybe 11 YES votes, forcing a us veto. Then abbas and pa would have the full backing of all Palestinians to honorably quit, hand over the keys, and make way to a new generation of Palestinian leaders.

    • I am TOTALLY DISGUSTED with abbas, pa, and all the arab regimes. They can't even get nigeria to vote yes and they talk about getting the zionists to withdraw from Palestine. LOL.

      Bunch of f$*@^!& s&%#heads.

    • As I have stated in another MW post……. shameful COLLUSION.

      UNSC voting results: 8 YES. usa escapes veto thanks to abbas. By waiting just TWO days would have forced the us to veto and show its true colors. us saved by the treasonous abbas and pa.

      1S1P1V. "Palestine will BE through the womb not war" as President Arafat used to say. Demographics, the true coming tsunami.

  • Israel's upcoming elections and the false nostalgia of Liberal Zionism
    • President Abbas signed the ICC and 20 other organizations. Game changer, hopefully.

      Good end to the year. Happy New Year!!

      VIVA PALESTINA!!!!!!

    • Bornajoo, there you have it....... COLLUSION. UNSC voting results: 8 YES. usa escapes veto thanks to abbas.

      Waiting TWO days would have forced the us to veto and show its true colors.

      The outcome of this resolution was never in doubt: fail to pass either by not having the nine threshold or by a us veto. The matter by which it failed is critical. Now we know thanks to the treasonous abba and pa.

      what next??? the only redemption for abbas is to file tomorrow morning for ICC and ICJ and ALL other UN agencies.

      O Palestinians, my brothers and sisters, what has happened to us?????

      1S1P1V. As President Arafat always said: we will win Palestine through the womb not war. Demographics is the true coming tsunami.

    • Very well done Palestino. You make us proud.

    • Very well said Bornajoo. Thanks for that. Agreed.

      If the "left" wins, it will be back to zero due to the left's lies and duplicities, and to the west's and PA's gullibility (or collusion?), enamoureness, and infatuation with the "left". Once the "left" wins, the West and PA go back to "trusting" and "believing" them and another 50 years will pass by with nothing.

      But you know, come to think of it, since 1S1P1V is the only path forward as I see it, maybe we need the "left" to fool the world for the next several years so 1S1P1V becomes a reality. According to PCBS, in 2017, Palestinians will outnumber Israeli Jews in Historic Palestine.

      1S1P1V - the only just, fair, logical, feasible, achievable, and sustainable way forward.

    • "The promise of liberal Zionism is illusory, if not outright deceptive".

      Great article Reem! Thank you.

      You got it 100% right. Liberal zionism is DANGEROUSLY deceptive. As I said here before..... left, right, center, center-left, center-right, extremists, it doesn't matter. ALL zionists are the same and have the same goal: NO PALESTINIAN STATE. They just go about it differently, with different faces, different words, different superficial acts. But their goal is one.

      What makes it really worse for us is our treasonous leadership. Totally abdicating anything and everything to the zionist occupier including the outsourcing of security operations. What a shame. Just give them their VIP passes and money and they shut up.

      Look what's happening now at the UNSC. We have a proposed resolution that is TOTALLY aligned with USA and zionist left in occupied Palestine: peace with all Arabs and Moslems, two states, Jerusalem shared with East for capital of Palestine, etc. etc. BUT USA is against because it does not want to finalize a settlement in one year and withdrawal in thee years. UNREAL!

      WHY? One year is more than ample to conclude an agreement. After all, the end has been known for decades. Withdrawal by end of 2017 is more than enough, marking 50 years of the 1967 occupation.

      Abu Mazen is colluding with the zionists and the usa. He wants to rush a vote this week to pretend that he's doing the right thing for Palestine. In reality, this is all cooked with the us and the zionists. Vote it this week and avoid the us to veto since we will not get 9 votes. But WAITING a few more days will ENSURE that we do get NINE votes and force usa to reveal its true intentions.

      Of course, this is not good for Abu Mazen. He does not want to forfeit his VIP pass and money. He wants to rush the vote now and avoid embarrassing his masters, usa and zionists.

      Sad. Pathetic. Distressing.

      Speak up my compatriots. Act up my compatriots.

      1S1P1V, one state one person one vote - this is the only just, feasible, logical, and sustainable way forward.

  • Meet the Falics: West Bank settlement funders, Netanyahu backers, and owners of Duty Free America
    • No surprise here. zionist money and power buys what they want (almost). But, to their chagrin, they can't buy demographics.

      Today, there are about 3.1B Christians (roughly 40% of the world) with an annual growth rate of about 1.3%.

      There are about 2.1B moslems (about 30% of the world) with an annual growth rate of 1.9%.

      Jews are at about 14M (about 0.2% of the world) with an annual growth rate of 0.7%. Most of the jewish growth is from the religious haredi part of the population. Out of the 0.2%, less than 0.05% are zionist.

      Do the math.

      As they say: You can't swim against the stream all the time. You can try, but the stream will overwhelm you at one point.

  • 'Peace Now' plays the Borscht Belt
    • Very silly letter, bordering on the pathetic.

      All zionists are the same....... left, right, center, or anywhere else in between. They are all united in one goal: greater israel. they just go about it in different ways, with different words, and different faces. But the bottom line is the same.

      zionism is evil. zionism is racism. zionism is genocide. zionism is violent. zionism is wrong.

      1S1P1V, the one and only way forward.

  • Israel should pay 1.4 million Palestinians to leave Gaza, Moshe Feiglin says
  • Next U.S. elections threaten Israel's 'total isolation' -- and the Israeli public is worried
    • It already exists. They are joined at the head.

    • Same to you just!

    • I wish I can share the enthusiasm. But alas, what's happening on the ground in the US does not really support this projection. Let's not forget that the US elections is 2 years away, an eternity! And as always, the zionists and their allies will circle around whomever is about to win and make sure they suck their oxygen out unless they surrender to total zionism. Remember: brainwashing and/or blackmailing. No matter who wins, USA 2016 will be zionist.

      Peace on earth. That's all we want, peace, justice, equality, human rights, civil rights, prosperity, a good future to all Christians, Moslems, and Jews in Palestine. 1S1P1V.

      Merry Christmas.

  • Sony email chain on behalf of Israel joined Russell Simmons and Michael Lynton with rightwing Zionists
    • No surprise here, just confirming what the world suspected except this time with inside evidence so the messenger is not accused of anti-semitism and anti-zionism.

      Anonymous, other hackers, and courageous whistleblowers will provide more and more info from the inside. Heroes like Julian Assange, Chelsea (Bradley) Manning, and Edward Snowden will shed light on the dark conspiracies of aipac and others. I'm certain soon someone from inside aipac will say the total truth.

      When the world suspected that most traditional news organizations, entertainment empires, and financial institutions are biased towards zionism, the world was accused of being anti-semitic, anti-zionist, and anti-israel. Well, the fact that these groups and organizations and companies are run by zionists cannot be denied.

      zionists organizations globally plan their agendas and coordinate their activities on a regular basis.............
      - the world zionist organization
      - the world jewish congress
      - the "x" jewish congress (replace "x" with any name of country, city, etc.)
      - the zionist organization of america
      - the anti-defamation league
      - the jewish agency for israel
      - aipac
      - the jewish national fund
      - top zionists families
      - top zionists politicians
      - top entertainment moguls (started when zionists allied with the mafia to open up vegas and hollywood)
      - etc. etc. etc.

      THEY ALL do their annual strategic planning with the goal of identifying who to target either for continued support (i.e. brainwashing and/or blackmailing) or to add to their column or to seek those up-and-comers in politics, business, entertainment, etc. and get them on board of the zionist train.

      indeed this is happening. For those who don't believe it should check the tax filings of these "charitable" 501(c) organizations.
      link to guidestar.org
      - 613 results for "zionist"
      - 9,651 results for "jewish"
      - 2,505 for "israel"

      So yes, we Palestinians are up against a formidable force. However, this force has started to be built over 50 years ago in the us. But it has now reached its peak and started to go down. It takes a lot of work to win against a force that's been organizing for that long but we're chipping away at it.

      1S1P1V is the only answer. And it's coming sooner than people think.

      Merry Christmas.

  • 'Israel is becoming an isolated ghetto,' says Amos Oz
    • Yesterday, when I read cohen's piece "What Will Israel Become?", it got me thinking on what is, what will, and what could.

      WHAT IS?
      1- it's a zionist entity. An ENTITY not a state for it has no borders and no constitution.
      2- it's a colonialist power that is murdering, stealing, and prisoning a whole nation.
      3- it's a criminal regime that is founded on three principles: CHEAT, LIE, DECEIT.
      4- it's an illusion of safe haven to Jews against the holocaust that has backfired.
      5- it's a racist society driven by ethnic cleansing and hate.
      6- it's an illegal entity founded on an outdated 19th century ideology whose time has long passed.
      7- it's a society based on religious and ethnic supremacy, abused by zionists for political means.
      8- it's an entity where the left is the right, the right is the center, the extreme right is the mainstream, and the fundamental lunatics are the decisive factions.
      9- it's an entity that shamelessly uses the tragic and hallow memory of the holocaust to blackmail countries into supporting it.
      10- it's an entity that is blinded by incredible arrogance, rampant disrespect, and senseless religio-ethnic superiority.

      WHAT WILL?
      Projecting the above, and staying the course if not even doubling down on it as it seems they will likely do, the "will be" part is very ominous for the zionists.

      Suffice it to say, they are digging their own grave, trapped by an ideology that has backfired and resulted in the exact thing that they set out to prevent and protect against.

      WHAT COULD?
      The Israeli Jews are a great, hardworking, smart people that have great potential to positively change the entire Middle East and the world if they collaborate openly, trustingly, justly, and equally with the people of the entire region.

      Starting with Israeli Jews clearly and loudly saying they want a 2SS and then demand their leaders to make it happen in 12 months (because it is possible).

      For the real struggle that is coming will make the zionist presence and cause very minute in contrast to the bigger picture. A picture where religious extremists - Jewish, Christian, and Moslem - will force a global conflict the likes of which humanity has never seen before.

      Leaders of the three great religions in the Holy Land must get together to chart out a path of coexistence, mutual respect, equality, atonement, reconciliation, harmony, and an interdependent vision.

      That is the defining urgency of the future. That is the new world order. And step 1 on that journey is the establishment of the Palestinian State as it is THE DEFINING ISSUE of the current and future Middle East.

      So cohen, "What Will Israel Become?" has little to do with the zionists and their power, and all to do with massive regional forces that peace-loving Christians, Moslems, and Jews must be part of and together work towards establishing a better future to all.

      Merry Christmas.

  • You're on a roll, Mr. President, so abstain from vetoing the Palestinian bid to the UN Security Council
    • Totally agree Blownaway.

      We Palestinians must only count on ourselves to make it happen.

      Each and every one of us, in colonized Palestine or anywhere else in the world, we must first and foremost WANT freedom before anything else and be ready to work for it.

      Then we must do whatever is right for us day in day out, in every non-violent way possible including massive peaceful daily demonstrations and marches across all of Palestine and marches towards all borders of Palestine from the outside.

      We will have our Palestinian state, of that I'm sure. Whether actively or passively, it will happen. And it will be through 1S1P1V.

    • Please try but no hope remains in usa. kerry now wants to DELAY any UN resolution till after the zionist elections. yet another delaying tactic implanted in kerry's brain and mouth by the supposedly "good, peaceful, and moderate" zios peres and livni. LOL.

      All zios are the same and have the same goal: NO Palestinian State. They may say different words or do differnt things tactically that appear "good" and "for peace". But don't be EVER fooled. Left. Right. Left-Right. Center. Center-Right. Center-Left. Extreme. Extreme-Centre. Extreme-Right. Extreme-Left All the same.

    • Ain't gonna happen EVER.

      usa and zionists have a common goal: NEVER establish a Palestinian State. The evidence and facts are very clear by now for everyone to see if they open their eyes and ears.

      The proposed Jordanian resolution is TOTALLY in line with what obama/kerry have said. We uncovered their charade.

      There will only be a Palestinian State through 1S1P1V, which will arrive either passively or actively over the next 25 years or so.

      No hope for obama/kerry. usa can never be a fair and impartial third-party. The zionists brainwashed and/or blackmailed the usa. The real question is WHY usa is behaving this way? WHY???

  • NY Times says a Palestinian majority would 'endanger Israel's democratic ideals'
    • nytimes=racism.

      "NY Times says a Palestinian majority would ‘endanger Israel’s democratic ideals". WHY?

      Because Palestinians (and Arabs) are by their nature undemocratic and have no good ideals?

      That's the antithesis of democracy. What nytimes and zionists are saying, Palestinians are a threat to zionism. You're damn right we are!

      We have nothing against Jews. So when nytimes says Palestinians are a danger to the zionist's regime "Jewish character", that's because nytimes and zionists know that they can't have "democratic AND jewish". It just does not work.

      so nytimes is showing its racist and religious biases under the guise of democracy and the long-held beliefs of the zionists that Arabs and Palestinians are animals and beasts, can never be democratic.

      Give me a break nytimes, peddler of racism and religious-ethno centric biases...

  • Obama took on the Cuba lobby-- when will he take on the Israel lobby?
    • Walid, I have long time ago discarded these illegitimate regimes. But you're right, they continue to work against a Palestinian State and their influence cannot be ignored. But I believe their days are numbered.

      Still, we Palestinians should and must count only on ourselves. Do whatever WE think is RIGHT FOR US. This can only start when ALL Palestinians in colonized Palestine PUT PALESTINE FIRST and collectively decide WE WANT A STATE. Then everyday do everything that must be done to achieve that goal NON-VIOLENTLY.

      Whether we get there actively or passively, IMHO all roads lead to 1S1P1V....

    • There we go again, yet another proof point today that USA-zionist axis is in fundamental collusion and total alignment (regardless to whether this is due to brainwashing or blackmail as I posted above). What matters is that this TOTAL COLLUSION between the USA and the zionists certainly exists.

      Haaretz lead story
      Kerry: Peres and Livni told me UN vote on Palestine would help Netanyahu and Bennett
      link to haaretz.com

      Ynet main story:
      Kerry: Vote on Palestinian UN bid would strengthen hardliners
      link to ynetnews.com

      TOI main story:
      Kerry said to warn UN vote on Palestine would strengthen Israeli right
      link to timesofisrael.com

      So, not only USA will VETO ANY UN resolution about the zionist state, but it will NOW PREVENT any UN resolution from being submitted to a vote so as not to impact the election.

      Just unbelievable.

      North Korea hacks into Sony and the USA is hugely upset that Sony is not releasing a movie since obama cannot allow someone to interfere in american freedom. Now, the same US government wants to muzzle Palestinian, European, and Arab freedom to speak out and stop us from submitting a resolution to a vote.

      Just WOW! what a zionist-controlled world we live in.

      So....... Left. Right. Center. Extreme. Center-Right. Center-Left. Left-Right. Extreme-Centre. WHATEVER. This is just a sad a Halloween Party with the same character but different faces. ALL ZIONISTS ARE THE SAME, some stick the knife in your heart while facing you and the others stick it and twist it in your back.

      BOTTOM LINE: USA and zionists are forever united in one goal: NEVER ESTABLISH A PALESTINIAN STATE. Point final.

      The ultimate question that begs itself is WHY? WHY? WHY? Why is the USA doing this? Why?
      Brainwashing. Blackmail. Both. You pick.

    • "Obama took on the Cuba lobby– when will he take on the Israel lobby?"

      Sorry to disappoint Phil but the answer is NEVER!!!!!! NOT EVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER.

      In front of all the facts and the evidence, the answer must be obvious to all by now. Two words: Brainwashing. Blackmail.

      zionists either 1) managed to brainwash most people of power and influence to buy the zionist story hook line and sinker or 2) most people of power and influence are being blackmailed by the zionists.

      Here we have a resolution that actually says EXACTLY what the US says it wants to do. EXACTLY. 1967 lines with swaps. 2 states, shared jerusalem. end to claims. mutual recognition. peace will all arabs and moslems.

      STILL, the US is against. Why? Because the US and zionists WANT THE STATUS QUO TO CONTINUE. Here's the brainwashing.

      OR, the zionists have some really big thing against the US and key politicians that they use as blackmail.

      So the answer to Phil's question is sadly NEVER.

      1S1P1V is the only path forward, the only viable, logical, stable, sustainable, feasible, and achievable path forward. 1 State. 1 Person. 1 Vote.

  • Mamdani's 'holistic' challenge: Anti-Zionists must persuade Jews they can only be safe by dismantling the Jewish state
    • Truly profound and thought-provoking, just amazing. Thank you Mr. Mamdani.

      The fundamental proposition he's making, that Jews can only be safe when they dismantle the Jewish state, is supported by zionism itself. I always believed that zionism caused the most lasting and long-term harm, not to Palestinians, but to Jews. The same very people that zionism said it was created to protect in the late 1800s due to events in Europe at the time.

      In the zealousness of zionists to create a state for the Jews so they are no longer discriminated again and excluded and being picked on as different, zionism pushed for and succeeded (for now ) in creating a state for the Jews, and hence, making very prominent globally the very thing that zionism should have not done - making Jews appear, behave, and be perceived as different and better than everyone else.

      zionism made grave historical and consequential mistake: instead of dividing and differentiating Jews and segregating them into an ethno-religious country on someone else's land, zionists should have have put all their resources and effort into defending the rights of each and every minority in each and every country in the world, guaranteeing along the way total equality, justice, protection, and safety to Jews anywhere.

      But the course zionists took led us to the mess we're in where Jews are less safe, less secure. A place where the state that they illegally forced upon the world is divided upon itself, torn apart between religion and democracy - asking itself are we jewish? are we democratic? are we jewish and democratic? Only realizing that they have injected religion into the discourse, a path in which no one will exit as a winner. For there is no possibility for any state to achieve a religious and a democratic doctrine. Look at Iran, Iraq, etc. etc.

      So yes, Mr. Mamdani is totally right: the future of Jews can be safe and secure without zionism and without a jewish state, In fact, that is the only way to guarantee the safety and security of Jews and to build a true lasting peace in Palestine where Christians, Moslems, and Jews live together in peace and equality.

  • In major shift, one third of Americans want US to push for one-state outcome in Israel/Palestine
    • @Daniel Rich

      Ah, truth and Justice! Books have been written on this topic. Without getting too philosophical or abstract, what is happening in Palestine is very REAL and extremely PAINFUL...

      When it comes to Palestine, truth underlines justice as there is no justice without that truth. That truth being:

      1) zionists (NOT jews) built an artificial movement to steal someone else's land.

      2) zionism itself is a political concept that is outdated and that had long died but zionists do not realize it yet.

      3) zionists illegally stole and colonized Palestine and continue to commit crimes every day against innocent Palestinians.

      4) zionists do whatever they can regardless to where they are to blindly support the zionist regime by abusing the holocaust and anti-semitism for their political ends (which ironically have negative impact of jews). Positions that they would themselves be vehemently opposed to had this situation occurred between other parties not including israel.

      5) zionist organizations around the world hold their regular strategic planning activities to ensure zionist and israeli interests stay at the top of the agenda of political, economic, and social world leaders and organizations.

      6) zionism is not judaism. not all jews are zionists. Palestinians are not fighting against jews. Palestinians are against zionists who stole our land and kill our people.

      7) Many jews are pro-truth and pro-justice, and hence are pro-Palestine.

      8) No people is the chosen people. For those who believe in God, we are all God's children.

      9) The Bible is not a real-estate guide. God is not a real-estate agent.

      10) Palestine was NOT a land with no people. We were there for thousands of years. My family was there for hundreds of years. That's hundreds of years more than Ben Gurion, Wiseman, Herzog, Peres, Lieberman, etc. who were all born elsewhere and came to my land and stole it.

      These are the immutable truths and the undeniable facts.

      So, it is upon these truths that peoples and countries around the world are increasingly deciding what is just and what is right. And thanks to the Internet and Social Media, these truths have no barriers and are no longer beholden and controlled by one party or another.

      And so, peoples and countries around the world are concluding that PALESTINE IS JUST.

    • Lol, me too. Thank you very much just. You are so very kind. Yes, everything is ok. Wishing you and yours great holidays, merry christmas, and a happy new year.

    • 1S1P1V - one state, on person, one vote.

      That is the only viable, feasible, and stable solution. No other way. Demographics point to that way. Extremist zionists point to that way. Criminal colonial actions point to that way.

      The arc of history always bends towards justice. Our cause is just. Freedom is just. Equality is just. Human rights is just. PALESTINE IS JUST.

      1S1P1V.

  • West Bank protesters cross separation wall in effort to get into Jerusalem
    • Demographics are impossible to beat. The zionist regime is trying hard to make Al-Quds majority jewish but has failed miserably. Since the zionists attacked the remaining part of Palestine in 1967, Palestinian population doubled in East Jerusalem.

      Not enough that "democratic and jewish" is impossible to achieve, and that the zionist regime is already undemocratic, the zionist regime now wants to enshrine religion in their basic law (can a lawless regime have law?? but that's for another post) so religion takes precedence over democracy. They think that's how they will "protect" the jewishness of Al-Quds.......... There goes "democratic and jewish".

      But we should not be surprised. adelson of all people (close buddy of nutnyahoo) recently said in an interview "so what if israel is not democratic as long as it's jewish".

      There you have it for the world to understand that peace remains as elusive as ever while the entire region turns increasingly religious fundamentalist and extreme. So sad........
