I wonder where the struggle between universal human rights and - “A Jew is by the nature of his creation a purer being. Similarly with the holiness of the land: The soil of Israel is essentially holier, the stones are holier because the land was destined by God to serve as the place of the Children of Israel” is headed "Either we are all sacred or none of us is" Paul Fourhorns Tenoso

  • Despite ravages of war, Gaza supports armed resistance to lift the siege
    • He's a bellwether, I think. He knows how the images are received in the US and that Israel is set on a path that is not going to end well. There is no point in bothering saying anything nice about Zionism at this stage.

      All the bad news- the 200 wedding crashers, the murder of Abu Khdeir, the Death to leftists as standard march sloganeering, the state of the education system, the 95% support for the Gaza op, the Jewish Chronicle story, the Salaita sacking- (that's just the last 4 weeks ) all points to a very disturbing moral meltdown.

      " Yo, some are there and really care
      About what's being learned and taught
      They fought through it when they got stuck
      Some are there 'till the bell rings
      Run through the day without thinking
      Cause they really don't give a fuck"

      There are far too many in the latter category in Israel.

      "Very important for Jews to condemn Israel's behavior in Gaza before Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement. God is keeping score.

      I am not part of the organized Jewish community. If I was, I'd resign.

      Without J Street, the entire Congress would have supported Israel's mass slaughter in Gaza.Oh, it did. Never mind."

    • It's pretty clear that Israel would like to kill as many Gazans as required to get them to surrender and go back to the siege and the eventual collapse of the public health system

      Israel says "Put the fucking lotion in the basket , Gaza "

      But Gaza is not playing that game any more.

      Israel is limited in terms of diplomacy and money. The economy is already slowing down and they won't declare the situation a war because they don't want to cover the losses of Jews in southern Israel. They'll throw them a few peanuts instead.

      Gaza was supposed to have surrendered weeks ago.

      Tensions are also evident in the Israeli cabinet.

      This could go on for months. Israel needs an exit plan but where is it going to come from ?

      Zionism seems to have reached an impasse. Jabotinsky thinking has run out of road. It's a pity Sharon died before 2014.

      "Answering a reporter's question, the prime minister denied that ties between Israel and the United States have become strained during the Gaza operation, and commended the U.S. for its support of Israel's "right to self-defense" and for approving more funds for Iron Dome batteries.

      The prime minister discussed the Gaza operation, Operation Protective Edge, and said that though it was not over, Hamas has been dealt a "heavy blow."

      "In recent weeks we've dealt Hamas a harsh blow. We've prevented, via Iron Dome, thousands of rockets from hitting our communities, and we destroyed thousands of rockets.

      "We've dismantled its abilities in Judea and Samaria [the West Bank] and its attempts to stage a coup there. We're determined to pursue the campaign with all means at our disposal and we won't stop." "

      And there is a lot of discontent in southern Israel - Israel won't declare the massacres a war as to do so would open the floodgates to compensation claims (for Jews only, of course, but enough to damage the economic numbers) .

      'Hamas says in an official statement that Israel "failed" to kill the group's military wing's commander Mohammed Deif, and that he will continue to lead the Palestinian struggle. Earlier, Fox News reported that an Israeli intelligence source said Deif was killed in an Israel airstrike on Tuesday.

      "The leaders of the enemy were behind their offices looking at the screens and their intelligence and apparatuses made them believe that the moment of celebration was imminent," the Hamas spokesman said. "You have failed and you have missed." "

      "Both I as editor and the JC are entirely supportive of Operation Protective Edge, as our coverage has demonstrated. Almost alone in the British media the JC has stressed Israel’s right to defend herself and sought to explain why Israel was faced with no choice but to take action in Gaza.
      There is, clearly, a humanitarian cost to that action. But I do not accept the figures touted around much of the media about the level of civilian casualties – many are, I am sure, terrorists."

      "Anti-Arab racism and anti-leftist incitement did not start this summer. Nor are they the product of an educational “error.” They are what could be expected from an educational system that for decades has been subject to a single narrative and a single curriculum and flees from any effort to confront multiple points of view.

      Young people shouting “Death to Arabs” prove the success of the educational system more than its failure. Such youths have internalized an aggressive worldview in which the strong side erases the “other” – be he Arab, poor or Mizrahi (a Jew of Middle Eastern origin) – just like they saw in school. Thus, in schools they recite Israel’s Declaration of Independence, which promises equal rights regardless of religion, race, or gender, but ignore the inequality between Jews and Arabs; they praise “equality of opportunity” for all, but don’t address the gaps between pupils from different socioeconomic backgrounds; they praise “national unity,” but marginalize the history of large swaths of the population.

      "But over the weekend, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry ruined everything. Very senior officials in Jerusalem described the proposal that Kerry put on the table as a “strategic terrorist attack.” His decision to go hand in hand with Qatar and Turkey, and formulate a framework amazingly similar to the Hamas framework, was catastrophic. It put wind in the sails of Hamas’ political leader Khaled Meshal, allowed the Hamas extremists to overcome the Hamas moderates, and gave renewed life to the weakened regional alliance of the Muslim Brotherhood.
      The Obama administration proved once again that it is the best friend of its enemies, and the biggest enemy of its friends. The man of peace from Massachusetts intercepted with his own hands the reasonable cease-fire that was within reach, and pushed both the Palestinians and Israelis toward an escalation that most of them did not want.

I thus encountered an almost normative constant in the Polish attitude – namely that it is seen as a virtue to struggle and to fight in such an existential situation even when victory is highly uncertain. One of the most outstanding gifts that Poland has given its European neighbours is the message, reiterated by several generations, that freedom is so valuable, so vital, that people not only dream of it but fight for it and defend it too, even to the death if need be."

      "• For people who are so worried about a possible drop in the Jewish population
      o By Reuben Jacobs, London
      o 19 Aug 2014
      o 08:41PM
      all that needs to happen is go back to the Solomonic era rules when it was easy to become Jewish. Nowhere in the Torah does it say that it should be difficult to become Jewish. This is a modern ghetto rule, made to appease the Christian and Muslim overlords who were concerned about proselytizing. (and the switch from male to female lineage came about to combat the amount of illegitimate children born after Jewish women were raped by the occupying Roman army). If Jews were able to free themselves from this weak ghetto thinking they wouldnt care a hoot if one or 2 women choose to leave the faith for their husband. "

      I nominate Mooser to become CEO of NEWJEW PLC.
      Anyone can join and become Jewish. Within 2 or three months using Twitter and a Groupon Jewpon Coupon style scheme he could easily sign up say 20 million NJs with keen Wall St interest as long as the vehicle can be quickly monetized. Even $20,000 in year one would be enough as long as Mooser can sell very juicy growth projections and the analysts will buy it if he points out how much Twitter went for. They could do a reverse takeover of Judaism and spin Zionism off into a SPV somewhere in the Bolivian jungle. Take away the intermarriage paranoia and introduce some chill along with human rights.

      People in Gaza are prepared to die instead of go back to the siege. They are sick of the broken promises.

      "With promises of paradise and gifts of beads and knives
      Missionaries and pioneers are soldiers in disguise
      Saviours and conquerors they make us wait

      The scars of the past are slow to disappear
      The cries of the dead are always in our ears
      Only the very safe can talk about wrong or right
      Of those who are forced to choose some will choose to fight"

    • I think it's that the Israeli cabinet is out of control. Lieberman and the settlers have Netanyahu by the balls. They want to go back to the siege or even expel the Gazans and Netanyahu has no idea how to get out of the hole he has dug for himself with this war of choice.

      "Toward the end of the demonstration, the matter of the wedding was forgotten and only the intermixed “Death to Arabs” and “Death to Leftists” remained. That’s the problem with extremism. There is always someone who outflanks you, faster and more sophisticated. If once the Yad L’Achim organization set the tone, then Benzi Gopstein from Lehava – who is far more media savvy – stole the show from them. And now Gopstein is the sign of moderation, the responsible adult who is trying to calm the calls to kill Arabs, so as to emphasize the original idea of the protest.
      “The people of Israel are responsible for one another, we are not a people for all the peoples,” said the organizers – and suddenly a vehicle playing Hassidic music arrives, it’s not clear from where. Many of the young people abandon Gopstein and Itamar Ben Gvir, the learned attorney for Lehava, and dance on the side, leaving him with the sign “Our teacher Moses is crying.” He is speaking in front of the Rishon Letzion veterinary institute about the Arab village where Mansour will take Malka, even though Mohammed is really Mahmoud and lives in Jaffa – which is not a village.

      "Just imagine the outcry from American Jewish leaders if hundreds of white supremacist Christian protesters came to a wedding of a mixed couple somewhere in the U.S. to take part in a court-sponsored demonstration in which the most popular chant was “Death to the Jews”. Try to conjure the howls of protests that would accompany a public call by a senior U.S. cabinet member for a blanket boycott of Muslim shop-owners who closed their shops in solidarity with the people of Iraq during the Gulf Wars. Think of the torrents of protest letters that would be published if an American university dared to reprimand a professor who expressed sympathy not only for Palestinian losses during the recent Gaza fighting, but for Jewish ones as well. Visualize the mass sit-ins that would be organized in front of office whose owners dared to fire Jews because they expressed support for Israel on their private Facebook pages. Envision the dramatic calls for tougher police action against roving gangs of hooligans who go Jew-hunting in the streets of lower Manhattan - or Istanbul or Djakarta, if you prefer - whenever another Jew was convicted of a serious crime. Think of the hunger strikes and days of mourning that would be declared if Congress tried to legislate the supremacy of Christianity, the diminishment of minority rights, the enfeeblement of the Supreme Court.

      American Jews would go nuts, and rightly so.

      Yet all of these and other phenomena that have developed gradually in recent years - and at an alarming pace since the start of Operation Protective Edge - have been met with a wall of silence by most American Jewish organizations. There have been no protests, no emergency summits, no call to arms, not even a request for more information or further investigation. Nothing but the sounds of silence. "

      "Two hundred meters from Morel Malka and Mahmoud Mansour’s wedding celebration in the Shemesh Aduma (Red Sun) wedding hall in the industrial area of Rishon Letzion, lined with supermarkets and other events halls, a counter demonstration was held by the Lehava organization – a demonstration of pure hatred. The hatred oozed from the looks of the protestors, dripped with their sweat, passed in the screams and the poisoned air.
      Some 200 people from Lehava (a Hebrew acronym for “Preventing Assimilation in the Holy Land,” meaning “flame” in Hebrew) came to try to destroy the couple’s happiness, a large number in shirts saying “Lehava – the Jewish Honor Guard.”
      “Ahmed Tibi is dead,” they screamed, “Mohammed is dead,” “Death to Arabs.”
      “Everyone knows the truth, but don’t given them reasons for an indictment,” one of the demonstration’s organizers tried to calm people. But the crowd never stopped abusing the air.
      When someone started calling “Death to Leftists,” one of the organizers tried to cover it with “Leftists are Jews.” But the man next to me explained: “The leftists are worse than the Arabs. They are a mixed multitude,” and earned respect.
      Toward the end of the demonstration, the matter of the wedding was forgotten and only the intermixed “Death to Arabs” and “Death to Leftists” remained. That’s the problem with extremism.

      “Because of weddings like this [there are] all the problems in the war,” says someone next to me. It is hard to understand what Harel is saying since someone is banging away crazily with a bottle of water.
      Gopstein wants to calm the flames of hatred. “Everyone wants for us to say Mohammed is dead,” he says, and tries to tell them “but we will not let them.” But next to him they are screaming “and that is what we’ll do.” Gopstein and Ben Gvir also talk about Mohammed the groom. When somebody corrects them, Gopstein says “Mohammed, Mahmoud, it doesn’t matter.” And someone completes what he is saying, “All the same shit.”
      One of the protestors, in a light purple shirt, explains to a foreign television crew: “It’s not racism. We simply fear that because of the assimilation we will become extinct. The Arabs do not want us alive so it is important that the Arabs go extinct and that we humiliate them.”
      “Let them bring out an Arab woman who wants to marry a Jew, I want to see that,” said the man in the purple shirt, his eyes inflamed with disgust, as if they bring out and give away women in the industrial area of Rishon.
      It is not just a demonstration of hate for Arabs or leftists, but also for modern women, who can do what they want. Facing the demonstrators, the organizers tried to keep a different tome: “Even if Morel converted to Islam she is still our sister, we don’t give up on a single Jew. A Jewish wedding should have been here. Soon the bride will come to dance with us here.” "

      Israel has the problem that Andalus had - wrong side of the Med , surrounded by people it has nothing in common with, an enclave linked to an empire that goes the way of all empires.

    • This is really amazing. It seems as though the latest Israeli insanity against Zionism's Untermenschen in Gaza has moved the anti Israel movement along considerably.
      Israel's leaders have no humanity and the breakdown is going to be their own fault.

      There are just too many Palestinians/Arabs/Muslims and other decent people around the world to make Zionism viable long term. BDS is going to make a huge difference to the 'deterrence' the bots always talk about.

      "A Sainsbury's branch removed kosher food from its shelves over fears that anti-Israeli protesters would attack it.
      The branch manager of the store in Holborn, central London ordered the section to be emptied on Saturday afternoon, while protesters outside picketed it calling for a boycott of Israeli goods. "

      Obviously IDF massacres in Gaza are not kosher.

  • Israel correctly fears its 'delegitimizers,' says leftwing member of Irish parliament
    • Why don't they just change the rules on who qualifies as a Jew ? It makes no sense in this day and age.

      "As we see every time there is violence, Israel is further marginalized in campus discourse.”

      Violence is Zionism's Viagra .They can't get enough of it. And while they are pleasuring each other intensively they have no idea what the pictures are doing to the image of Israel abroad.
      Regev should spell it out to Yossi I.

    • Self hating does not appear to be as dangerous as self delegitimizing.

      "Lehava spokesman and former lawmaker Michael Ben-Ari denounced Jews intermarrying with non-Jews of any denomination as "worse than what Hitler did", alluding to the murder of six million Jews across Europe in the second world war."

    • Systematic killing of non jewish civilians does most of the delegitimising. Yossi Israeli thinks about Palestinians differently to the outside world and that is why all the killings are such a problem. Majoritarianism and chosenness do not fly outside Israel. Ya salaam.

  • Video: Gaza forces young Jew to overcome 'giant hostile ferocious backlash' of her community
    • "And when I came up with questions and started asking Jews and others who support Israel what they thought about what I had researched and all of the facts I presented, I was met with some pretty extreme hostility "

      Zionism's cognitive dissonance difficulties. Very hard to defend the memes against someone who knows the facts.

      And then one day the unthinkable happens as the equilibrium collapses.
