An old Jewish guy in Oz. Tired of the fallacies surrounding the I/P issue We were given the territory for a homeland state, with more than enough room for every Jewish person on the planet, even today Since proclaiming its frontiers in the May 15th 1948 in the Israeli Government plea for international recognition, Israel has illegally acquired by force and occupied more and more territory outside of it's proclaimed and recognized Sovereign territory. None of which has ever been legally ceded to or legally annexed to Israel by any agreement or legal instrument The occupied have a right to violent resistance against armed citizens of the Occupying Power. However, no one has a right or excuse for committing acts of terrorism against innocent civilians. To that end: I condemn all forms of terrorism, murder and any other harmful crime by any individual, group, organization or state and; condemn any government, individual or organization who purposefully encourages the illegally settlement of territories held under occupation thereby purposefully endangering its own citizens by using them to create illegal facts on the ground Today the State of Israel continues to encourage Israeli civilians to create illegal settlements, illegal facts on the ground, breaking law that was adopted by the UN and International Comity in large part because of the treatment of our Jewish fellows under the Nazis. Law adopted to protect all civilians including those of an Occupying Power from the expected violent consequences of occupying another people and their territory Israel demands the swap of non-Israeli territory for non-Israeli territory so it can keep non-Israeli territory in a future settlement. There is no legal basis for the demand nor is there for the disarmament of a future Palestinian state. All states have equal right to self defense. Likewise, there is no legal basis for the demand to be recognized as the Jewish state. Israeli demands have no legal precedence or validity The Palestinians have no legal, moral or ethical obligation to forgo any of their legal rights. Negotiations mean only one thing, the Palestinians forgoing legal rights so Israel can benefit Were Israel to adhere to the law, it can easily protect itself, grow and prosper. It'd have no UN resolutions against it. No need to continuing to corrupt US politicians in order to maintain a UNSC veto vote. No need to lie to and endanger its citizens I've received too many threats for opposing Israel's policies towards the Palestinians, broken windows, graffiti'd walls, hate mail, I'd prefer to remain anonymous, if that's OK. Who I am is irrelevant. Reliable information is essential to informed dialogue towards resolving the I/P issue. Propaganda has no place in struggle for peace

      " 1- “thank g-d for my camera……” . As if 90% of Palestinians don’t have smart phones with extremely proficient cameras with the ability to film anything they encounter during any day of the week."

      Any other footage of this incident ?

      "2) Palestinians have access to a very advanced network for Wi-Fi and cellular. Probably 90% of Palestinians between 15 and 65 have smart phones with cameras. "

      Any other footage of this incident ?

      "If incidents like this were more common there are enough cameras around to capture daily life."

      "... Israel is the Mideast’s only democracy"

      Strange, Palestine held democratic elections in 2006. https://unispal.un.org/DPA/DPR/unispal.nsf/0/236F02CF539AA9418525710600587785

      Israel meanwhile has never had a legally elected Government under the promised Israeli constitution http://pages.citebite.com/p2b0i7o9o6xlh

      "Israel" is "the Occupying Power" over non-Israeli territories (UNSC res 476 https://unispal.un.org/DPA/DPR/unispal.nsf/0/6de6da8a650b4c3b852560df00663826 ). As such it is bound by the UN Charter Chapt XI and has a " sacred trust" to protect the occupied, their property and their territory and assist them to statehood.

      Instead, the Jewish State illegally settles non-Israeli territories it covets (against one of Judaisms basic common sense tenets) purposefully putting Israeli civilians on the front lines in contravention of GC IV. A convention adopted to protect civilians of the Occupying Power as well as citizens of the occupied

      "... and has more historic and legal claims to the disputed lands of Judea and Samaria than the so-called “Palestinians”, since there isn’t now nor has ever been a country called Palestine."

      Nonsense. Palestine was a state with provisional recognition in 1922, by 1925 it had adopted Palestinian Nationality Law per the League of Nations Mandate for PALESTINE, Article 7

      Article 7 The Administration of Palestine shall be responsible for enacting a nationality law. There shall be included in this law provisions framed so as to facilitate the acquisition of Palestinian citizenship by Jews who take up their permanent residence in Palestine. http://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/palmanda.asp#art7

      Furthermore, Israel proclaimed its borders effective at 00:01 May 15th 1948 and was recognized as such. http://www.trumanlibrary.org/whistlestop/study_collections/israel/large/documents/newPDF/49.pdf However, at the time Jewish forces under Paln Dalet were already in territories the Israeli Government itself claimed on May 22nd 1948 were "outside the State of Israel" ... "in Palestine"

      " why was Israel attacked five times by its Arab neighbors BEFORE there were any settlements?"

      It was never attacked. A) Israeli forces were in non-Israeli territories even as Israel's borders were being proclaimed and being recognized. The other Regional Powers had a right to attempt to expel Israeli forces from non-=Israeli territories for the simple reason that it was Israel acting outside of its proclaimed and recognized territories. Israel got there by attacking non-Israeli territories. No Israeli territories have ever been invaded

      Go peddle your Ziopoop somewhere else. You'll only make a complete idiot of yourself here

  • Liberal supporters of Israel slam Trump's 'terrifying' comments-- some saying Jews need to keep a majority
    • "Partition failed in 1947 and has failed ever since"

      Partition didn't fail, the Jewish State has failed to adhere to its legal obligations.

      As unfair as UNGA res 181 seemed, had Israel adhered to the resolution as Jewish representatives said it would, there would have been a basic change of name and government for some 56% of Palestine and some initial disruption, life might have gone on as envisioned in UNGA res 181.

      Of course we'll never know because the Zionist Federation and Jewish Agency never intended to and haven't kept their word. They were and still are notorious liars , as the Arab states were well aware by 1947

      "So, withdraw from all said territories and simultaneously install permanent siege on all of it, as was done to Gaza? "

      Withdrawal = no more occupation = independence = qualification to become a full member of the United Nation. Palestine borders both Jordan and Egypt it would also open Palestinian territorial waters, and; were we take into account Israel's only actual proclaimed and recognized borders of 00:01 May 15th 1948, it would open the borders between Palestine and Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt

      "I am glad you believe in official statements, after all I am sure the palestinian leaders tell how much money they stole and where is it located! LOL"

      Palestinian leaders did not do the IMF final audit

      "When Arafat died, european press reported how much money his widow inherited in swiss bank accounts. Millions!"

      News paper reports need to be verified. Most, as with the IMF report, are the usual stupid MSM cherry pickings. The NYT article was "backed by the IMF" https://www.imf.org/en/News/Articles/2015/09/28/04/54/tr030920

      "Anyone with a little understanding the history and situation in Palestina knew that the so called two state solution never was a possibility,"

      No doubt, especially while Israel, the so called Jewish State (with no Jewish morals what so ever) refuses to adhere to the law and continues to occupy and illegally settle other folks territories ...

      The Palestinians have made some incredibly generous offers. 78% of Palestine, recognition. Israel has refused them and offered precisely nothing.

      " ... the millions every year they pocket and pay into foreign accounts more than insure their loyalty. "

      Problem. Aid moneys are most often spent in the countries giving the aid.

      "When Arafat died, he had a swiss bank account with more than 50 million dollars credit, all saved from his pay als president,"

      The IMF final audit says your lying out of your fat Zionist rrrrrrs

      From the NY Times (SUBSCRIPTION REQUIRED)

      “In total, the Fund estimates, the amounts diverted from the official budget from 1995 until 2000, when the diversions stopped, may have exceeded $898m. IMF officials say $799m was returned to the PA, with the difference accounted for by investment losses………the bulk of the money diverted from the budget – including all the Swiss bank accounts – was either given back or invested in companies that became part of the PIF, an assertion backed by the IMF”

      "and I bet that Abbas and the rest of those traitors also have similar sums at their disposal"

      Which according to the IMF audit is NOTHING

      "We, the USA, insured that the zionist expension will not have serious opposition, by destroying governments who could face up to Israel."

      Glad we got that sorted.

      " There is evidently a plan that conceivably would include a multi national security agreement where Israel retains full security control over land west of Jordan. "

      Has no legal basis. States have equal right to their own security.

      "Also the same requisite the Palestinians accept Israel as the Jewish Nation."

      Has no legal basis. Recognition is not mandatory. There are numerous UN Member states that do not recognize each other.

      " Bib mentions that both theses conditions are not acceptable to Palestinian leadership"

      Rightly so. Neither condition has any legal basis. In fact, none of Israel's demands have any legal basis. The Palestinians meanwhile have every right to retain ALL their rights even in negotiations.

      The best solution is for Israel to withdraw from all non-Israeli territories for once. Never been tried.

    • Contrary to the Zionist/Israeli narrative, it is the Zionists who never fail to miss an opportunity.

      From the end of at least the Roman era to 1922 Jewish folk could move to Palestine, obtain valid citizenship, buy land and settle anywhere in the Jewish People's alleged historical homeland. Few did. The majority in the diaspora missed the opportunity, (if they ever actually wanted to take it)

      Herzl could have in his life time moved to Palestine, obtained citizenship, bought land and settled anywhere in Palestine. He didn't bother. The Zionist Federation didn't even bother to move there until 1936. Opportunity after opportunity missed.

      Instead of taking the Balfour declaration at its word (it doesn't mention a state and the two British white papers made that very clear), the Zionists wanted more. Another missed opportunity to return to anywhere in the Jewish People's alleged historical homeland.

      Instead of accepting the 1922 League of Nations Mandate for Palestine per Chapter 7, the Zionists insisted on missing that opportunity too.

      In 1948 instead of keeping within Israel's proclaimed and recognized borders the Zionist formed provisional Government of Israel attacked and illegally acquired by war territories that were not proclaimed or recognized as Israeli. Another missed opportunity.

      Today the Arab peace initiative has been on the table for over a decade. Israel seems hell bent on missing that opportunity too.

      Now Israel is in a position where it simply can not afford to adhere to the law. It has lied itself into a corner from which the only legal escape is to plea bargain its way out

      Meanwhile the Palestinians have no legal obligation to forgo ANY of their legal rights. The only negotiations they are perhaps obliged to are how and when Israel will withdraw, how and when refugees might return and what reparations the Jewish State should make.

      However while Israel has the US veto in its grubby blood dripping fist, nothing will change. The pyramid scheme will go on. Jews will continue to be duped, Palestinians continue to be dispossessed

      "When they get over their falsely inspired dream of eventually gaining sovereignty from’river to sea’ and start negotiating with Israel rather then continue to try to win back 48 through asst means of international sympathy, lawfare, incitement, terror they can begin to put together a realistic concept of their own sovereign land."

      Oh FFS catch up instead of regurgitating inane ZioDrivel.
      The Palestinians have voiced to the world that they're willing to cede 78% of their territory for peace with Israel. http://pages.citebite.com/e9p5s8u2yhcd
      In 1988 they recognized Israel in far more territory than Israel proclaimed or recognized as Israeli.
      The Arab Peace Initiative has been on the table for over a decade.

      Israel has done absolutely NO THING towards peace. NOTHING!

      " And as Netanyahu stated clearly today there is no way in the world-unless It’s an all out Armageddon killing Israeli Jew and Palestinian, Arabs and Persians alike- that Israel would cede any security control west of Jordan and the reasons are too obvious to explain"

      Netanyahu is a warmongering liar. A) No state has more right to security than its neighbors especially by illegally acquiring, illegally settling or illegally occupying their neighbors territory. B) Israel has never been invaded. No Israeli territories have ever been taken. Israel's proclaimed borders have been secure from day one

      "The Montevideo Concention is not a law/principle to aquire territory."

      Correct. It is the normal method by which states come into existence. Article 11 tells us it is illegal for states to recognize territory acquired by war

      " It hasn’t been “codified in the UN Charter”. "

      The inadmissibility of acquiring territory by war/force, is codification of Article 11 of the Montevideo Convention

      "It has become customary law to recognize states according to the criterias for statehood which are mentioned in this convention"

      Indeed, and all UN Member states are obliged to adhere to Customary International Law

      //“In both instances, you’re talking about the ownership of real estate.”//

      "I’m talking about examples of legal acquisition"

      The examples you gave are about the acquisition of real estate. Not the same as the legal acquisition of territory by secession, partition or thru legal annexation by agreement.

      Israel seceded from Palestine which was a State with provisional recognition in 1922 and a Nation State as of the adoption of Palestine Nationality Law in 1925 per the LON Mandate Article 7

      No. What ever occurred before Israel proclaimed it's borders effective at 00:01 May 15th 1948 is irrelevant to the current status of Israel's actual borders and Israel's illegal activities outside of its borders since and even as they were being proclaimed and recognized

      "What territory was legally acquired"

      The territory declared and recognized as Israeli in accordance with the Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States 1932, which by 1948 had been codified in the UN Charter

      " (besides 3% private property and another 3% by the JNF)??? "

      In both instances, you're talking about the ownership of real estate. The ownership of real estate by people, organizations or foreign Governments does not give them rights to territories. The territory of states is owned by all its legitimate inhabitants, whether they own/rent/lease real estate or are homeless living under a bridge. JNF is not a citizen BTW

      " And according to what international law/principle?"

      Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States 1932

      "The Zionist Terror Agency had allready occupied most of the 78% before 15th May"

      Indeed. However, prior to 00:01 May 15th 1948 it was a civil war. On declaring its borders effective, the civil war became a war by the State of Israel on what remained of Palestine

      The Israeli Government didn't proclaim all of the territories it occupied as Israeli, which gave the other Regional Powers the right to attempt to expel Israeli/Jewish forces from the non-Israeli territories.

      If you're going to talk about Israel, it is a state. States have defined territories. The Israeli Government proclaimed Israel's territories, the majority of the International Comity of Nations recognized Israel within those borders. Only one state, Palestine, has recognized any further territories as Israeli. However, Israel has not agreed to that recognition, so its borders remain those of 00:01 May 15th 1948

      Israel's borders were defined by proclamation. Borders are amended by agreement. Israel might eventually be forced to agree

    • Even better. Have Israel adhere to International Law, withdraw from all non-Israeli territory illegally acquired by war since 00:01 May 15th 1948 when Israel's borders were proclaimed effective and subsequently recognized.

      "Except that Jews had always lived in Eretz Yisroel."

      Strange, the Jewish scriptures tell us Jewish forefathers conquered the region.

      "In fact, they had a Kingdom there for a while"

      So what? The modern state of Israel proclaimed its borders effective May 15th 1948 at precisely 00:01 in order to be recognized. No other territory belongs to Israel. Certainly not territory acquired by war "outside the State of Israel" ... "in Palestine"

      " Jews had repeatedly tried to return to Eretz Yisroel over the course of a millenium"

      A few did. The majority didn't. In Herzl's lifetime he could have, but didn't. The Zionist Federation wasn't formed by people from the region. At the time it was formed they could have all moved to Palestine, bought land, attained citizenship, settled. They didn't. Instead they loaned money at interest to poor Jews to go do the hard yards at the front lines, same as today. It's called a pyramid scheme, it needs more and more territory to sell to more and more gullible Jews in order to survive. It's a scam and the main target is still poor Jews

      " Jews are the indigenous tribe of Eretz Yisroel "

      Who did King David conquer?

      "and they’re not making any plans to leave any time soon"

      So let 'em live in Israel, that's what it's for. Get out of all non-Israeli territories currently occupied by the Jewish State

      "The white Europeans who colonized the Americas and South Africa, had a place to return to. Their colonies in Africa and the Americas mirrored their homes in Europe."

      Difference is ... Israel is STILL colonizing and it's colonizing non-Israeli territories.

      "The Zionists didn’t leave their ‘homeland’ "

      Strange, only one of the signatories to the Israeli declaration of statehood was from the region

      IOW you spout stupid illogical Ziopoop

    • @ asherpat

      "... by your logic, the Holocaust must still continuing right now"

      It's YOUR logic that an increase in population proves atrocities didn't happen

      " Alternatively, the “genocide” of the faux-nation ... "

      Strange. Palestine was a Nation State in accordance with the LoN Mandate for Palestine Article 7 (Palestinian Nationality Law was adopted 1925 per Article 7)

      " that can’t even properly pronounce the original name of their land "

      Please attempt explain your weird theory without smearing yourself with even more ZioPoo

      "How exactly the rising number of Muslims between Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea falls under “Incremental genocide”?"

      Killing is not the only form of genocide. Israel is a UN Member State and bound to adhere to the UN definition of genocide

      Perhaps the word you were looking for was “Reverse” or “Faux”

      Let's apply that to the Holocaust there are after all more Jews now than ever before.

    • For the record

      Israel is a UN Member State, bound to the UN Charter in its entirety, including the UN definition of Genocide

      Article II. In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such: a) Killing members of the group; b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

      Article III. The following acts shall be punished: a) Genocide; b) Conspiracy to commit genocide; c) Direct and public incitement to commit genocide; d) Attempt to commit genocide; e) Complicity in genocide.

      Article IV. Persons committing genocide or any of the other acts enumerated in Article III shall be punished, whether they are constitutionally responsible rulers, public officials or private individuals.

      Article V. The Contracting Parties undertake to enact, in accordance with their respective Constitutions, the necessary legislation to give affect to the provision of the present Convention and, in particular, to provide effective penalties for persons guilty of genocide or of any of the other acts enumerated in Article III.

      Article VI. Persons charged with genocide or any of the other acts enumerated in Article III shall be tried by a competent tribunal of the State in the territory of which the act was committed, or by such international penal tribunal as may have jurisdiction with respect to those Contracting Parties which shall have accepted its jurisdiction.

      " you seem to be happy to turn the facts upside down to suit your political fancies. The Jews have the major claim to being the indigenous inhabitants of Palestine (as proven by archaeeology)"

      Care to show this archaeological evidence ... thx.

      There is absolutely no evidence what so ever that Jewish folk were ever a majority in the region

      "There is no solid body of evidence for a Palestinian Arab identity until the Jews arrived to stake their claim"

      The Jewish scriptures tell us our Jewish forefathers conquered someone who was there before them.

      BTW your bullsh*t is irrelevant as of the moment Israel proclaimed it's borders effective, precisely 00:01 May 15th 1948 (ME time) http://www.trumanlibrary.org/whistlestop/study_collections/israel/large/documents/newPDF/49.pdf As of that moment whatever territpry wasn't proclaimed and recognized as Israeli simply was not and is still not Israeli by any legal agreement

      "If you reckon that “a movement for (originally) the re-establishment and (now) the development and protection of a Jewish nation in what is now Israel.” is unjust and immoral ..."

      There's nothing just or moral about Israel and Israelis illegally in non-Israeli territories illegally acquired by war by the Jewish state. Go kvetch to the Israeli Govt/Zionist Federation for f*cking up

  • Israel's settlers clear path to annexation with new land law
    • "Under Ottoman, British and Jordanian rule, plenty of Palestinian land has never been formally registered. Ownership derived chiefly from usage. Much of the rest was common land.

      Israel seized these vast tracts that lacked title deeds, or that belonged to those expelled from the West Bank by the 1967 war"

      'Registration' and 'title deeds' apply to 'real estate' not territory. Territory belongs to the legitimate inhabitants of the territory whether they own/rent/lease real estate or live under a bridge.
