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

    • " I get that you like most BDSers have no problem with Jews practicing whatever religion they want as groveling slaves. "

      Quote, verbatim an example... thx

      "But the reality is that religion held out the promise that someone like Ben Gurion would come and restore their freedom, lift them from bondage and they would one day live again in their country. "

      Quote the passage/s thx

      "Zionism is the practical realization of what Judaism always preached."

      It's the exact opposite to the basic tenets of Judaism

      "As if this privileged white man knew what it was like to be black in the ‘deep south’"

      I get what you're trying to say. Americas laws were changed by only black men? WOW!!! I wonder if all those white guys knew?

      Seems there's no end to the fool you'll make of yourself in trying to justify the unjustifiable

      "There are no comparisons to the situation in the I/p because the conflict is not racial, religious or cultural. Is it nationalistic? Yes. But only Jewish nationalism Is condemned. Palestinian nationalism Is championed. "

      The Palestinians didn't decide to invade in 1897, it was the the Zionist Federation decided to colonize Palestine.

      Jews could have immigrated and achieved legitimate citizenship and bought real estate and settled from at least the Roman era until 00:01 May 15th 1948. Few did. Even Herzl in his life time could have. He didn't bother.

      Now Israelis, be they Jewish or non-Jewish are prohibited by the Laws Israel obliged itself to by becoming a state, from illegally settling in non-Israeli territories.

      Go take your pathetic whining to the Zionist Federation for preventing Israeli from settling anywhere in the Jewish People's alleged Historic Homeland by demanding a separate state and then proclaiming that state within the borders outlined in UNGA res 181

      "So many on the far left (and here) have such pseudo intellectual disdain for tribalism and nationalism but only condemn it when it’s Jewish"

      What Israel is doing is illegal you amazingly stupid Zionist moron.

      "Quiet will be met with quiet. "

      Like all wholly holey Hasbara, your ZioBullsh*t overfloweth

      90 years AFTER the Zionist Federation decided in 1897 to colonize Palestine, Hamas were formed

      39 years AFTER Jewish forces invaded non-Israeli territories in 1948/49 outside the newly proclaimed borders of the State of Israel

      20 years AFTER Israel occupied even more non-Israeli territories in 1967

      Hamas are a response to over a hundred years now of Zionist fomented aggression

      "If one believes reports that blame only israel and not both israel and hamas for why u.n. Shelters were hit "

      Under the Laws of War the defense of villages, towns, schools et al is allowed. In fact they can ONLY be targeted if they are defended.

      However, the Palestinians have no effective defenses against armaments fired from Israeli warships at sea. They have no effective defense against Israeli warplanes, missiles, land mines, white phosphorus fired into areas during the daylight and where there are no Israeli troop to take advantage of the smoke cover

      "a seaport and an airport on on the table for negotiations from, surprisingly, Lieberman"

      Both on the table long before Lieberman came on the scene.

      ".... apparently, The hamas thinks tunnels , planning attacks and covert ops to (hopefully)kidnap israelis pays better in numbers of prisoners released then opening any port, or bringing any kind of humanitarian relief to gazans not affiliated with Hamas, is, pflp, etc."

      Hamas didn't fall out of the sky. They are from the people of Gaza. A people under belligerent Israeli occupation who have a right to build tunnels, plan attacks and covert operations in order to capture enemy soldiers. Meanwhile, it was Israel, the Occupying Power, who destroyed Gaza's airport and forbids any shipping directly into Gaza.

      So again, you're talking bullsh*t!

      Keep up the good work.

    • Interesting. I've reached a similar conclusion.

      Israel has failed again to have "respect for and acknowledgement of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of every State in the area and their right to live in peace within secure and recognized boundaries free from threats or acts of force;"

      “2. Upon full cessation of hostilities, calls upon the Government of Lebanon and UNIFIL as authorized by paragraph 11 to deploy their forces together throughout the South and calls upon the Government of Israel, as that deployment begins, to withdraw all of its forces from southern Lebanon in parallel;

      “3. Emphasizes the importance of the extension of the control of the Government of Lebanon over all Lebanese territory in accordance with the provisions of resolution 1559 (2004) and resolution 1680 (2006), and of the relevant provisions of the Taif Accords, for it to exercise its full sovereignty, so that there will be no weapons without the consent of the Government of Lebanon and no authority other than that of the Government of Lebanon;”

      Whether we agree with UNGA res 181 or not, their proclamation of borders in order to be and by which they were recognized was per UNGA 181, not conquered/invaded. The existing state of Israel, agree with it or not, only has right to those territories according to its own statements to the UN/UNSC before and after declaring statehood

      The Palestinians have long ago expressed a willingness to forgo the right to all their territories for peace with Israel. Their sense of compassion for all the innocent folk caught up in the Zionist Colonization enterprise appears to surpass your own

      "Fact is, Jews are not interlopers or invaders or pirates in our historic homeland"

      Fact is, Israel is an interloper and invader of non-Israeli territories. So too are Israelis (Jewish and/or non-Jewish) who're illegally settling in non-Israeli territories. Is that too hard to get thru your brain dead impenetrable Zionist skull?

      "For millions of Jewish Israelis , immigrants or native-born, this is our home"

      Also common to allow their return/freedom after hostilities are over if they have not already taken alternative citizenship in a country other than that of return, whereby they lose refugee status

      "Do you think Korematsu/ internment was a legitimate thing?"

      It's not about what I think. The new HasBarristerSister was moaning about something common to countries at war. She thinks possible allies of the Jewish State should have been exempt for some reason. Can you give me one?

      Internment or expulsion and the freezing of assets is the norm amongst countries at war. Go bitch to the Zionist Federation for choosing to colonize Palestine demanding a Jewish State instead of accepting the more than generous offer contained in the LoN Mandate Article 7

      " If Nepal declared war on the US, would it be ‘right’ to intern or expel American citizens of Nepalese ancestry"

      "Funny how their support doesn’t extend to the million Jewish citizens of other Middle-Eastern countries who were exiled and had their property stolen. "

      Having taken citizenship in countries other than that of return, they're no longer refugees. Go weep to the Zionist Federation and its state who encouraged Jews to forgo their Arab State citizenship.

      BTW it's NORMAL for countries at war to expel or intern possible allies of their enemies and to freeze their assets. The US/UK/Australia incarcerated or expelled their own citizens of Japanese, German and Italian descent during WW2. It's also normal to allow their return after hostilities have ceased and unfreeze their assets. People who've taken up alternative citizenship no longer have refugee status.

      You'd best question why Israel does nothing towards helping claim Arab Jews assets. It would be in effect an acknowledgement of Palestinian rights to claim their ceased assets. Israel simply can nor afford the compensation due. Instead they screw Arab Jews too. No one is spared an evil if it suits the Zionist cause

      "Any mention of right of return for them? I thought not."

      You haven't 'thought' at all. If they have RoR even though they have taken up alternative citizenship, so too would Palestinians who have not taken up alternative citizenship

      "Palestinian citizens of Israel get to vote, be members of the government, the military and the judiciary, etc."

      So what? They're citizens.

      " When there were Jewish citizens of Arab countries. there were (and still are) actual apartheid laws that kept them out of those positions. Any mention of their rights? I thought not."

      A) BLM = Black Lives Matter B) If they've taken citizenship elsewhere, they have no rights in countries where they're no longer citizens.

      "Both Hamas and the PLO have the eradication of Israel and the Jews in their written charters"

      The PLO recognized Israel in 1988. Israel has never recognized Palestine

      "Any mention of that by BLM? Does BLM even know about that and, if they do know, do they care?"

      There are so many loose ends, pull anyone of them and the house of cards will fall after which all that's left is G-d gave it. The same G-d who was AWOL during the Holocaust and every other major event that took the lives of G-d's believers

  • If Israel is unwilling to differentiate itself from the settlements, then boycotters shouldn't either

      "Obviously, in the case of Soda Stream, people are putting emphasis on taste, need, utility and not on politics. That is why they are doing spectacularly"

      Not to mention the fact that they pulled out of the West Bank. If they're pulled out earlier or better yet, never been illegally in non-Israeli territories in the first place they'd likely have made even more.

      A rabid vein popping Zionist from my neck of the woods sold his shares in Soda Stream because they were going to move out of the West Bank. He's rightly deserving of every lost shekel. Poor sick sod. LOL

    • I have come to the same conclusion in the past four years.

      The State of Israel is in breach of its legal obligations.

      Boycott the state and any business or person/s profiting from the state's illegal actions in any non-Israeli territories

      " ... “international law”. On first view, it seems to be based on agreements between nations. On the other hand, it seems regularly to support policies to which no nation in its good sense ever would have agreed"

      Example of such policies

      " ... no nation will deliberately open its borders to hostile aliens (on whatever “opinion” their hostility is grounded) – so may we really assume that any nation has agreed to such an international law?"

      When the opinion is that a state should adhere to the law, is it actually hostile? Adhering to the law seems to benefit countries. The HasBarristers here have given a fine example. Soda Stream has increased in value since abandoning its illegal operation in the West Bank

    • Yes Theo, you missed over a hundred years by the Zionist Federation and its institutions ripping off Jews by loaning specifically poor Jews money at interest on condition they put themselves and their families on the front lines where there was and still is most danger. A task now taken over by the State of Israel, who continues that fine tradition of lying to, taking advantage of and f*cking jews over

      The Palestinians have no obligation to accept anything less than their full legal rights to territory and freedoms

      They are also under no legal obligation to forgo any of their legal rights in negotiations.

      Meanwhile, Israel has no right what so ever to any non-Israeli territories acquired by war or any other illegal means and; Israel has a legal obligation to withdraw from all non-Israeli territories illegally acquired by war since its borders were proclaimed effective at 00:01 May 15th 1948 ME time.

      Israel is also legally obliged pay 70 years of reparations, which it has never been able to afford and it is legally obliged to allow non-Jewish Israeli refugees return to territories the Israeli Government proclaimed May 15th 1948

      "Without the power of enforcement there are no rights. Which incidentally is why I don’t consider the UN’s legal rulings to be legitimate, they lack enforcement capability and thus aren’t a government at all"

      B) The UN wasn't set up as a government

      A) The UN enforced Saddam's expulsion from Kuwait. Secured Indonesia's withdrawal from East Timor etc. It is quite capable. The veto vote prevents that capability from being exercised and it is controlled by vested interests, not any sense of justice or morality,

      C) I guess you're also against Israel having a right to exist. Yes? http://pages.citebite.com/g2v1s9i7g1qsd

      "... my family (grandparents) lost property in the in 1960s race riots that would have directly benefited me. To what extent does that give me license to steal property from blacks in those same areas? Again my answer would be it doesn’t. The descendants of the rioters aren’t responsible for my loss and I don’t gain license to punish them from some sort of historical right"

      Interesting theories you expound. So the Palestinians, who didn't play a part in the Holocaust and who didn't expel Jews in the Roman era deserve to have more than half their territory given away for a Jewish state. Right?

      "The people who have moral title to the land are the people who now live on the land and make improvements to it ..."

      WOW!!! So if I decide to take care of a piece of land in the US as a non-US citizen, I have a moral right to take it away from a US citizen who might not take care of it as well as I might. Right?

      "This allows for a simple theory of international relations which is very utilitarian"

      ... and will start many wars.

      " Contra-positively all moral claims to territory last one generation. If a group (including a nation) hasn’t been able to realize them during a lifetime they are forever forfeit for their descendants."

      You're doing a great job. So Jews from the diaspora of 2,000 years can f*ck off out of Israel and Palestine. Right?

      "In short all punishments one wants to dole out for marauding need to be done to the actual marauders not their progeny."

      Israel slaughtered how many innocent children in its unwarranted attacks on Gaza?

      "Jews are one of the most ancient people. "

      Nonsense. The Australian Aboriginals span some 45,000 years. Jews and subsequent Christians and Muslims are newbies

      If not for forced assimilation and genocide we would have been as numerous as Chinese. However, now, with strong Israel this process will be reversed.

      "As for Jews and Israelis. Jews have chosen to identify with Israel"

      You're delusional. Neither I or any of my Jewish friends identify with a state in breach of its International obligations and the most basic of Judaism's tenets

      "Zionism is Judaism greatest achievement recently"

      Breaking the basic tenets of Judaism is a great achievement? WOW. You really need help dude.

      There's nothing 'great' about the purveyors of a vile pyramid scheme that requires more and more territory to survive and that preys specifically on poor Jews in order to loan them money at interest, on the condition that they place themselves on the front lines in the putrid war on Palestine

    • Poor poor Jeff, he'll say anything, absolutely anything, no matter how ridiculous, insane, illogical it makes him look.

      "Jewish people as a historical entity has the oldest claim to the piece of land now called Palestine.

      Strange. According to the Jewish scriptures our Jewish forefathers conquered folk who were already there. Did they, contrary to the same scriptures, slaughter every single one?

      "Yes, there were other people in there. As people – they are all gone"

      Where?

      " Their genes have been inherited by other people"

      So they're still there. Contradicting yourself is so ZioPuke. If their genes were inherited, then they are related to those people who were there before our brutal forefathers

      " but as ethnic entities – they are gone. We – the Jews – remain"

      You're delusional
