"Either we are all sacred or none of us is" - Paul Fourhorns Tenoso "One has to bear in mind that Israelis live in a largely mythic world, a somewhat modified and vastly simplified version of the Iliad. In this starkly polarized vision of reality, in which Israelis are by definition innocent victims of dark, irrational forces operating against them, heroic death in war always makes sense, and violent coercion is the option both of necessity and of choice. The Hebrew proverb says: “If force doesn’t work, use more force.” The great kabbalist, Yehuda Ashlag, taught that the means for correcting the problems in the world are mercy, truth, righteousness and peace. He wouldn't have recommended Zionism. BZU graduate. Big fan of hummus bil lahme, Fairuz in the morning and old style Jewish dissent. I believe that Judaism can do way better than Zionism, which is a dead end of eternal trauma.

  • JVP offers bold universalist Hanukkah message in the wake of Gaza slaughter
    • "Where have I ever condoned mass murder? Your comment is a blood libel. "

      Mass murder of religious fundamentalist terrorists. those school bombings. and the hospitals . Or did the people just die by accident >? Was it all a terrible mistake ?

      "Blood libel" is rich coming from a Zionist. How many Gazans does the god YESHA need in sacrifice to make Israel prosperous ?

    • Good point, Mooser. there must be a lot of Jews who have jumped ship in the last 20 years because they feel the thugs do not speak for them.

    • The people of Gaza are not religious fundamentalist terrorists. They are just people who want to live in dignity.
      Big deal if you have read Marcuse. The proof is in what you do.
      And supporting the IDF in Gaza is right wing. Obviously you can be left wing in Israel if you read books but in the big world you're just another weak soul who can't stand up to state sponsored nihilism.

      The starving are seemingly weak. They have no chance. They’re supposed to be deterred, scared of their neighbors, and refrain from bothering them. But because they’re fanatical, they act illogically. Because they’re economically desperate and strategically weak, they choose to challenge their complacent neighbors across the border.
      The Grad rockets Hamas is firing at Sderot, Ashkelon, Ashdod and Kiryat Malachi are rockets of despair. The rockets fired at Tel Aviv and all points north are rockets of fanaticism. With their backs to the wall, our fanatical enemies to the south have decided to tear down their house over their heads, in hopes of taking some of the complacent ones with them. Left without a future, the fanatic, starving people of the Gaza Strip are trying to bog down the complacent Israeli democracy in their mess. "

      Fitch lowers Israel's credit rating outlook from positive to stable
      The downgrade stems from a fear that the Israeli economy is slowing down, from the government's growing investment in security, and from the raising of the government deficit target in the 2015 budget.

    • the bots will try to spin the conflict as a religious war all the while as they kill Palestinians with impunity in the background . They have decided that YESHA is forever. Very Prussian, really.

      Now, twenty years after the heroics of June 1967, Ben-Gurion’s speech at Beit Berl, his wrathful cry that the most glorious of Israel’s victories could turn out to be even more poisonous than defeat, has become my most vivid memory of Israel in 1967, when, along with hundreds of thousands of others, I visited the West Bank for the first time, drove freely through the Sinai, and even brought home as a souvenir from the Golan Heights a plate of instructions in Russian from the wreck of a Syrian tank. I am more and more persuaded that the old man I heard that night twenty years ago was more prophet than angry octogenarian.

      "The Jewish state could not regard itself as validly in existence until it had, at least once, perceived itself to be defying the world. Unfortunately, even tragically, this new power has been used deplorably. "

    • Israel doesn't have strategic flexibility because it has a big albatross called YESHA hanging around its neck. And no plan B.

      Europe has no strategic interest in killing kids in Gaza, regardless of whatever Jews think.

      And Israel is great and without it I wouldn't be able to breathe but it's not able to do anything about ISIS. So the arguments about Israel's usefulness to the West are overdone especially in an era of declining American power. Which is what ISIS represents. Saudi isn't playing by the rules.

      Of course the bots can plough on heedless to what everyone else is thinking but once they lose public support in Europe it's going to be much harder for them. and that point is not a gazillion years away. Israel is an economy as well as the realization of God's word. It's the economy, Naftali. Systemic risk is the biggest challenge facing Israel.

      After it loses Europe it can still plough on for a while but apartheid is going to be very hard to manage coherently. And eventully it's khalaas.

      Better to cut a deal now while it still has options. We are heading into a very unstable decade.

    • Israel might string along the charade for another year or 2 but that'll be it.
      Protective butchery was the end of holocaust cover for systematic human rights violations in Europe.
      Israel may have brainwashed its Jews comprehensively to believe the world owes it a living but the world doesn't care.

      Maybe we can start joking about Israelis the way we joke about everyone else.

    • jon

      Israel spent over 100bn dollars making sure there would be no Palestinian state.
      Are you going to go to Hebron to remove your fellow religionists over the dead bodies of the religious fruitcakes in the IDF? Or will you wait for apartheid to fall?

  • U.S. seeks to counter Palestinian UN resolution with alternative offer, says French diplomat
    • That's all true Walid but it's not as if the world otherwise is stable. Diplomacy is about give and take and the US needs allies for other firefighting jobs.
      It's great to able to support Israel unconditionally but risk is funny and 100% protection is not possible.

      Jordan has the ISIS thing as well....

    • Baby please don't go to the UNSC

      Sung by Jen Psaki with the backing of the Jewish money band

    • It's great to see Jordan helping the Palestinians.

    • The US has been corrupted by Zionist money. Jen Psaki is the proof.
      Expecting the US to play a neutral role is deluded.

      The good news is that the world is moving on from the fairytale of the peace process so that's likely to undermine the bot stranglehold on Dc. Expecting US politicians to break free of their funding chains is nuts.

  • Palestinian UN effort seeks to set 'terms of reference' for negotiations and promote shift away from US leadership

    • They have to stop moaning about the Holocaust. They learnt nothing from it.

    • Every year the leaders of Israel drift further to the right.
      Olmert was bad but Lieberman was worse and Bennett is the pits.

      Selling the latest incarnation of Jewish contempt for the world to American Jews, especially the young ones , is going to be impossible.

      One of the features of the modern world is how hard it is for minority languages to be adopted by people under 20. There is a much bigger world out there they want to be part of. And selling them Jewish hatred is very hard.

    • The interesting thing in that photo is that the 2 conscripts and the 2 dogs are muzzled and the only one allowed to speak is the moron.

    • Once a dog is trained to do the most self-destructive thing any dog can do, attack people, it can’t be left unmuzzled aroound people. -

      Same goes for Naftali Bennett and Glick.

      All the way down to Israeli dance culture

      link to

      "The history of Israeli folk dancing is a reflection of how Israelis see themselves. It has its roots in the German Wandervogel, a pre-World War I youth group devoted to a back-to-nature philosophy. Gurit Kadman, born Gertrude Lowenstein, was an active member before joining the Blau Weiss, one of the earliest Zionist youth groups. In 1922, she moved to Palestine, and by the time of mass immigration in the 1940s she was creating what she deemed indigenous Israeli dance. The Jewish Women’s Encyclopedia notes that “all the while, Kadman invested much time and energy in the preservation and fostering of the dance traditions and festivities of the diverse ethnic groups in Israel, including the Arab sector and other minority groups.” It’s the Israel mono-myth brought to the movement of the body."

      Ancestral homeland my ass.

  • US feels the heat on Palestine vote at UN
    • The Nazis also had the victim mentality down to a tee.

    • “The Israeli public, due to elect a new Israeli government in three months’ time, increasingly regards the US role as toxic.” -

      the Jewish state doesn't deserve to exist when all it means is brutality and cruelty

    • The US media betray the people in their coverage of Israel. Americans are on the whole fairly decent people who play fair and expect others to do the same.
      Israel is grotesque, a small minded country where cruelty is the currency of daily life beyond the Green Line. Americans don't know any of that.

    • There is less Jewish money in European politics.

      And Turkish Cypriots have full rights.

      Why can't goys have rights under Jewish rule?

    • Impunity
      Nobody ever stopped them so they think they can do what they want.

    • It's more than that, oldgeezer. Glick is the embodiment of the Hebrew bubble , that alternative Zionist reality that dominates discourse in Israel. And the Danish ambassador represents reality.

    • "I’m in favor of marriage generally, for everybody who wants to, to whom ever they choose. - See more"

      It's not about marriage per se, Mooser. It's about the rules regarding who is a Jew.
      The Parsis in India have the same problem as the Jews in this regard. (Obviously they don't run wars ).

      Ultra conservative priests who won't bend the rules and can't think strategically - in their case if one of the parents isn't a Parsi then the children aren't Parsi.
      This made sense back in the day when life was lived locally and marriages were arranged by the parents. But now when you have a religious sect with well educated members who tend to get jobs all over the world it's hard from Mon n Pop to vet the prospective marriage partners. and you end up with

      1 a wider gene pool
      2 intermarriage like it's going out of fashion
      3 a dwindling number of co religionists
      4 panic

      We have Parsi friends and it's one of their big concerns, that the kids don't meet other Parsis. But they wouldn't kill anyone because of that.

      I saw a quote by an insightful IDF walla a while ago who said he joined in idealism but soon figured out that as they had the weapons they sought out the confrontations.

      Maybe if Israel had to face the consequences of its wars it wouldn't be so trigger happy.
      Drones are better than infantry at killing but they don't address the chaos of war or the flaws in war modeling.

    • Yeah Annie and it wouldn't be genocide if say 400 Jewish kids were killed in testing because the population would still be growing and they should really just get with the program because it would be good for business and prosperity and there would be no need to get hung up over individual rights when the interests of the group as a whole are far more important. And if the economy grew by say 3% on the back of 400 kids what's not to like ?

      The IDF needs war because that is what it does. The internal logic of Zionism. Then they built up war industries around the urge. They redesigned international law to fit the need. They adopted apartheid, again for the same reason. War = prosperity

      I would not be surprised to see some serious change after Christmas.

    • It's a process of abuse. The abuser can't stop now. The warning signs were all ignored and the brain changes can't be reversed.
      Israel is going to get reality really hard. Judaism is not a capable parent either. Social services are going to have to intervene.

    • The point where the neighbors sign the alcoholic into rehab. Because the Jewish family won't.

      The Dáil has agreed a motion officially recognising the State of Palestine and the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination.

      The Palestinian Ambassador to Ireland Ahmad Abdelrazek was in the Dáil tonight to watch the debate.

      The Sinn Féin Private Members motion, debated last night and tonight, was not contested by the Government.
      TDs from all political parties as well as Independents welcomed the motion.
      However, former minister for justice Alan Shatter (who is a Zionist) criticised the wording of the statement and claimed that it should have better reflected the nuances of the Israeli-Palestine conflict.

      Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald welcomed the Government's non-partisan position in accepting her party's motion.

      She said tonight's decision sends a strong message of solidarity to the Palestinian people.

      Ms McDonald welcomed the way Ireland is now joining 135 other countries and eight other EU countries in recognising Palestine as a state.

      She said it would have been wrong for Ireland to wait on the EU to arrive at a collective decision on the issue.

    • JEW KILLING is a crime against God. Especially in Erez Israel.
      Jews didn't go to Israel to be killed in political violence FFS.

      Palestinians, by contrast, are vermin.

    • Systematic killings and systematic lying about the killings. Abu Khdeir was murdered by his family because he was gay. 500 kids killed but the schools they died in were used to launch rockets. Minister had a heart attack.

      and the Lord said

      I will give you a land of milk and honey . But you'll have to kill and kill to hang on to it and lie about the killing. And that'll be fairly pointless cos you'll forget about me.
      And they shot him

    • As Phil's mother often says, Jews wouldn't do that.

  • 'Our Liberation Will Not Be Complete Until Everyone’s Is': A report from the American Anthropological Association boycott debate
    • That's Hebrew logic, Walid.
      There is no space for Palestinians in Erez Israel.
      there is no law there either.
      And this is why 70% of American Jews intermarry - would you want to be identified with these sociopaths ?

    • "anthropology draws and builds upon knowledge from the social and biological sciences as well as the humanities and physical sciences. A central concern of anthropologists is the application of knowledge to the solution of human problems -"

      they can't be brainwashed like Israeli Jews can.
      they wouldn't accept hasbara, because they are trained to THINK

    • Here's another one for another defeat for the bots
      For when some more light breaks through
