  • Is the U.S. quietly imposing travel sanctions on Israeli officials?
    • I know that MW wants to concentrate on the Israel/Palestina issue, however there are more urgent events in the world.

      The takeover of the government in Kiew by non-elected nazis and ultra right elements, they provide 3 ministers and the head prosecutor, should ring alarm bells in a jewish blog, and the annexation of the Krim by Russia is returning us to the days of the cold war, when a nervous idiot could have started a world war.
      With the sanctions of the USA and EU we are pouring oil on the already hot situation, and if we know Putin, he will not back off. Obama feels that his time is getting short and want to show how he can master a dangerous situation. The only problem is, the west miscalculate Putin, he will not budge an inch.
      Ukraine is not a member in the EU or NATO, so can we risk a serious confrontation by putting our noses into that affair? Historically speaking the Krim belongs to Russia since 1783, Sevastopol is their most important naval base since that date, so in the opinion of many educated person they should have the peninsula. After all, good 60-70% of the population are ethnic russians.

  • Netanyahu seems to put Hitler mustache on Angela Merkel
    • Being fortunate to be fluent both in english and german, I had to notice that the translator did differ from what Merkel said. It is very usual and it bothers me, because sometimes it leads to great misunderstandings.
      Merkel´s face talks a whole story, and I would like to warn Bibi, she is not a pushover like our great leaders in Washington are. She may just decide to take the last two submarines, that Germany gave to Israel, back with her.

  • Meet the Jewish students who are taking on the Jewish establishment
    • Thanks, Light, I am showing my age.
      During 1960 or 1961 I dated one lovely student from Vassar.

    • Could someone explain what is a "jewish identity"? Belonging to that religion? Since there is no such thing as a jewish nation, a jew from Poland have very little or nothing in common with one from Marocco, what other cathegory can be used? Benjamin Freeman, an american jew, accused during the 1960s other jews that they are to 80% nothing, but converted khasars. So if they have nothing else in common then it must be the religion!
      The problem is, that great number of them are not religious and have never seen the inside of a synagoge in their adult life. A catholic is not a catholic if he doesn´t belong to the church.
      Perhaps Krauss can enlighten us on this subject.

    • hophmi

      Do you think we also should have a catholic group, a methodist group, a baptist group, a moslem group, a hindu group and a hundred other such groups? In my opinion dislikes of jews may originate from the facts, that they always separate themselves from their fellow citizens and that may bother certain individuals or groups. Over the history of mankind we were though to dislike other nations or religions and very few can free themselves from that curse. Can you?

    • Excuse my ignorance, however I always though that Vassar is an all female college? In that case I wonder what Henry is doing there, or was there a change?

  • 'Haaretz' analyst says surging BDS movement may be contributing to falling shekel
    • Shach

      I used to read your comments in another blog and this one makes as much sense as most of them. Very little to me. You take all the ingredients from a cooking book and try to use them to make a single dish, however it just doesn´t work.

      Hungary never was part of the old SU, just to point out one mistake, however was occupied by them for 45 years. I let all others slide, no sense to list them. Apropos, I have 45 years experience to show people how to make $5,000 out of $10,000 in a short time, if you know what I mean?

  • After all that buildup-- SodaStream ad was flat
    • This comment is written with a grain of salt, because last time we owned an israeli stock was about 20 years ago and that investment turned out to be a bummer. The information on the stock was cooked and totally false.

      With that experience in mind, if the information on SodaStream is correct, then the stock is a buy at $35-36. The high during the past 12 months was around $76, also the stock lost over 50% in a short time, in my opinion mainly due to the BDS campaign against it. That will eventually go away and the stock has a possible gain of up to 50% in a year or two, however there are a lot of ifs.
      I would suggest it only to those who have a great faith in the future of Israel and want to participate in a small way. Others better stay with US stocks.

  • SodaStream flap educates Americans about the illegal settlement project
  • Rep. Grimm threatens to throw reporter off Rotunda balcony
    • And the fifth column inside the country grows and grows, we must wonder if any of our politicians is still without a zionist backing and obligation.
      All those traitors in Washington should read up on the history of WWII and what happened to the collaborators at the end of the war.
      History likes to repeat itself.

  • De Blasio's leftwing base is enraged by AIPAC moment
    • RoHa

      When will Australia become totally independent and shake off the british chains. As long as a foreign citizens, the queen, is the head of your state, you are not really free. The same goes for Canada and New Zealand.

    • Daniel

      History is always written by the victors and if you read the history of WWII from american or russian writers you will see great differences. The truth may lie someplace in the middle. On the other hand germans and a few other western historians write a much different story, not as pleasing to american and british readers.
      Once I read in a rather dependable source that what you see and read online, to 80% either totally or partially untrue, that means you have 4:1 chance to get and spread wrong information when quoting such sources.
      This is to back up your statement on history taught in schools.

  • 'I will not uproot a single Israeli' settler, Netanyahu says, and Washington Post backs him up
    • By the way, I did not read most of the articles you quoted, because my time is limited and I participate in several blogs in four different countries!!!
      Since for months MW deletes most of my comments, regardless how carefully written, it became to me less important to participate. I read one or two articles, but than move to someplace else where my comments are more appreciated.

    • Hallo Annie

      Thank you for a really long reply, I am sure I don´t deserve that much attention.

      I was not specifically referring to this article, but to the average tone of writings both by the MW stuff and the commentators. Please read the title carefully, to a person less educated than you are it sounds like:
      " and the WP backs him up!!!" Really, how dare they, however it may only be my impression? It seems there is another comment on this title.

      You have a lot of back patting in this blog, however a good political discussion lives from different views, it becomes boring if they all agree on everything. You can thank the israeli or zionist bloggers, who bring a lot of spice into the discussions, even if they are usually wrong and off their rockers. I personally don´t even count my remark as a critic, only an impression on me. If you write a blog you cannot have a very thin skin, because you will also have critic voiced, as usual in the press business, you should read a few other blogs and the comments they get.

      Your reaction is way overdone, if you tell everyone to go someplace else when they voice the slightest critic, then you may end up with very few people who sing the same song in a well organised chorus.

    • I find rather interesting that writers at MW constantly seem to be surprised by the facts that the NYT or the WP underwrite or support zionist goals both in Israel and at home.
      It is well known that both newspapers, among many others, are jewish owned and managed, and if you look at the names of most major journalists writing for them, they are also jewish.
      Would it be just as surprising if catholic journalists with names like Monteverdi or Puccini in Rome would support the politic of the Vatican?
      It is very difficult to go against ideas that was instalt into one of us from the very beginning of life, a few are able to break the chains, however most will never muster the strenght it takes to do it.

  • Canadian pols' pandering to Israel is even more clownish than US pols, but at least they do it on camera
    • Taxi

      I live in Europe since decades and find very little "love" of Israel if you contact the average person, a no issue is a more proper statement. The political cast hangs on, because they want the support of the financially well stocked jewish groups and associations, (see the USA), or in case of Germany and Austria, they are under the constant pressure or even blackmail by the ever present jewish central committe.
      Here we should not confuse Israel with the jews, as contrary to the ever ringing alarm of zionists over new anti-semitism, there is none to talk about. Sure, you may find a few individuals, however there is a much greater anti-islam phobia and that flame is fanned by jewish sources.

    • Harper was not in Israel as a private person, but as the ministerpresident of his country, therefore he certainly should control his private adoration. Religious sentimentalism should not be the tenor of his visit, but cool political talks, benefiting the country he represents.
      If Canada wants religious ties with Israel, they should send a bishop.

  • An open letter to Stephen Harper, agent of colonialism, injustice and hypocrisy
    • Simple reason: "the enemy of my enemy is a friend of mine"!

    • The movement of human beings from one place to another is as old as the history of this race, however there is a great difference between moving to a territory of another nation to live with them and perhaps become one of them or to subjugate them, steal their land and chase them from their thousand years old home!!
      Mr. Chabaan did the first version, the zionist colonists in Israel did the second, therefore your critic on him is unjust.

  • Jon Stewart plays 'Let's break a deal' with AIPAC
    • Jon Steward always ticles my funnybone and I find him funnnnnnny!
      In my opinion he reaches more people with his funny way to present a situation than a "non jew" who may just bore his listenners to death, therefore I welcome all jews who have the guts to displease Israel and its agents and vassals in the USA!

  • Europeans with 'no legitimate claim' to America wiped out indigenous people -- 'totally different' from Israel (Harris)
    • Right, Annie

      And just think the spriritual connection to the Vatican in Rome by all those roman catholics in Africa, South America and Asia, according to yonah they all could move to Rome and throw out the locals who lived there a few thousand years.
      Since great percentage of jews have ansolutly no genetic connection to the original hebrew tribes, some say as high as 80-90%, the israelis have just as much right to Palestina as those above mentioned catholics to Rome.

  • Scarlett Johansson watch: SodaStream stock plunges
    • Shalom, Hophmi

      "What is the sense to keep repeating irgun, irgun, irgun?"
      Exactly the same as repeating holocaust, holocaust, holocaust!
      Or Hitler, nazis, Hitler, nazis.
      To make a point!

  • Thug
    • Easy, he counted all of them!
      Yesterday I visited the local jewish community center, it has several hundred members, and did not hear one single negative remark about Sharon, but a lot of praise, so yrn may just be right with his assumption.

  • On House floor, Gohmert says Blumenthal is anti-Semitic Jew who'd welcome another Holocaust
    • Just tell the same to those people on the pacific islands whose lands are vanishing in the waters, or the ice bears who will be starving soon, not to discount the glaciers melting all over the world.
      Making such a statement about global warming is like saying water is not really wet! Just keep counting the ever growing number and strenth of hurricanes and tornadoes, watch the rising level of seas caused by the melting of snow and ice on both pols, and if you live long enough you will be convinced. In Greenland, where 30 years ago there was a 10 feet iceshelf, today they grow potatoes!! Naturally all those have nothing to to with the climate change!

    • Probably one of those born again christians who clutch in one hand their Bible while with the other shoot doctors who perform abortions on the needy.
      The Air Force Academy in Colorado is totally in the hands of such people, so we must be careful whom our pilots will bomb in the future. It is pitiful how our nation is sliding toward a control by fanatical religious groups.

  • Chilean soccer team puts Palestine front and center
    • Palestine identity before 1964?
      Just look at old 2,000 years old maps of the romans and greeks, you will see Palestine the same place it is today, a bit earlier than 1964.
      Since when do we have Israel on the map?

  • U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv shuts down after tens of thousands of Africans asylum seekers protest
    • So again, the US embassy had to shut down, it seems it becomes a regular procedure, not only in moslem lands, but now at our best friends, the shining democracy in the ME!
      Perhaps the palestinians watch this and grow cojones and join the fun, putting real pressure on Niniyahoo, ringing in the last round of this shameful farce we so dearly support.

      Allison, great job and keep it up!!

  • JNF on why blue box has no green line: 'This doesn’t say this is a map of Israel'
    • Lefty

      Ein gutes neues jahr wünsche ich!
      Yes, it is mindbogging how often in MW the discussion turns into hair splitting on rather unimportant subjects. It is a very good way to confuse the subject until people forget the real purpose of the discussion, you can observe it on major international debates, like the war in Syria or the Iran blockade.

  • What Would Jesus Do (on his birthday in Jerusalem)?
    • During my travels I have visited mosques in Istambul and Kaiouran, (it being the third holiest to the moslems), the world´s second largest synagoge in Budapest, St.Peter´s Dom and other old churches in Rome, Firenze, London, etc. Also pagodas and buddhist temples in Asia, to see the culture of those peoples.
      Jews visiting christian churches during Christmas should not raise any eyebrows at all.

    • In my opinion Jesus would say the following: Since I am only an invention I have no birthday, however I am ashamed of all those crimes done in my name!
      I am particularly ashamed of those churches, that although carry my and preach in my name, do not follow those commendments they supposedly live by. The oldest one, the roman catholic church, always prostituted itself to gain power and earthly fortunes, blessed the weapons used to kill other christians, preached hate against other christian churches and forbade marriages between different christians faithfuls.
      Where were all those christian churches when during WWII millions were massacred because of their faith, ethnicity, political belief, etc.?

      Coming from an orthodox catholic family I wonder how intelligent and well educated persons still can believe those fairy tales, myths and outright lies, and discuss the merits of the Torah or the Bible.
      Might as well do the same with the tales of the Grimm Brothers or Christian Andersen, among others, who also wrote beautiful stories, full of wisdom and kindness, where the good usually wins and the bad will be punished. In all religions I know of the bad and the aggressive wins, the good is usually sidelined and used for others to follow.

  • A Palestinian messenger
    • Walid

      I admire your faith in the impossible, but remember in real life there are no wonders!! Abbas is a pudgy butterball without any backbone and courage, he certainly will not risk losing the support of his present donors. The palestinians desperatly need a new set of politicians, however I do not see anyone on the horizon, they are all in israeli jails.

  • A Jewish Christmas message to the unsaved world
    • Walid

      I have read many times that without the catholic church the western humanity probably would be a century or more ahead of our standing today.
      A thousand years ago in today´s Spain and Portugal the arabs had a very high culture, mathematic, astronomy and medical sciences were the best in the world, arabs, christians and jews lived peacefully side by side, and countless precious books were written on those subjects. After the christians conquered and chased away the arabs, many of those books were either burned on the order of the Vatican or simply vanished in its vaults, sending the continent back to the dark middle ages.
      During the inquisition anyone who tried to speak up against the doctrine of Rome, were either burned or silenced with treaths, see Galileo.

      Why do we need an organised religion to do good, ethic and education will do just as well?! Looking at the 50 million or so born against christian and their preachers who get filthy rich on them makes anyone a non-believer. They shoot doctors who perform abortions. How many wars did we have on religious grounds, where the Vatican did not want to lose any of its influance or wanted to extend it? The Crusades, the 15, 30 and 100 years war in Europe, the subjugation of middle and south America, etc., etc. Religion always was a tool to subjugate the poor, scaring them to obediance. Priests, bishops, rabbies, mullahs, etc. enjoyed privilages from the rulers for keeping the masses in obediance, they did a better job than all the sercet police combined.

      Supposedly God is everywhere, so why must the believers go regularly to the church, synagoge or moshee, they could talk to him at home? They must come to pay an obolus to the clergy and be kept in line, this applies most to the wandering jews, who were kept in line 2,000 years long by their rabbies.

    • Prof. Ellis

      The christian religion is nothing, but a sect that distanced itself from the main judaism and grew into a huge religious community, and the same goes for the protestanism, methodists, etc., who did the same to the catholic church, they all are a piece of the same cake.

      You mention "anti-semitism" in Handel´s Messias and you are probably correct, the two churches are fighting eachother for almost 2,000 years. To be fair, you will not find too many synagoges where the rabbi have positive words for the christians.
      All you have to do is to read the Talmud and see what that, to you holly, book says about us goyims, I withhold the urge to quote any of it.

      Religions, all of them, did more bad than good to us humans, therefore desolving them would be a positive step toward a peaceful coexistance between us. Since there is no such thing as a jewish nation, not even a christian one, we should limit our faithfulness to the land where we are born in or are citizens of and remember that we all came from the same place a few hundred thousand years ago.

      Wishing you a great Holiday Season, whatever is your reason to celebrate it.

  • John Kerry's framework proposal sets the stage for the ‘Gazafication’ of the West Bank
    • Every dictator, occupier or colonial power always finds a few quislings who are willing and able to sell out the interests of their fellow citizens, and I always considered Abbas and his group in power to be just that! Quislings.

      Should they ever agree to such an infamour act of turning the WB into a swiss cheese type of territory, we certainly cannot speak of a state, then it is up to the people of Palestina to deal them the same award the people of norway did to their own Quisling. Ropes are better than bullets, as you can use them again, and again....
      Bullets are for the brave, ropes for traitors and criminals!

  • 'Foreign Policy' blames AIPAC for warmongering Iran bill, but Maddow won't tell you that

      You should not worry about a refusal from her, according to unreliable tongues she likes to be called cute, but only from her own genre.

  • It sure pays to support Israel!
    • OlegR

      We should also not forget that those charity organisations receive tax deductible donation, so all americans contribute to the huge salaries paid by them, by forfeiting on taxes due!!

  • After attending Mandela's memorial, Knesset member's blood rejected in gov't drive because she is African
  • Israel apologists attempted to discredit Mandela with false Israel apartheid quote
    • If Mandela did not accuse Israel of being an apartheid regime, then he should have done it!! It was true then and it is still true.
      Rest in peace Mr. Mandela, our own president could learn a lot from you.

  • Israeli ambassador's present to Obama -- settlement cufflinks!
    • Regardless how delicious the soup may be, there is always one who tries to find that proverbal hair in it!!

    • I have read several articles on the findings of ISRAELI scientists and archeologists, digging since good 30 years to find traces of jewish history, as described in the Torah and Talmud.

      They could not find any trace of the capital of David, who supposedly had a huge army of 30,000 soldiers! No trace at all and they conclude that the story of king David is just an invention.
      The original great temple was not in Jerusalem, but in a city north of it, ( I just cannot remember the name of it), and first it was destroyed by the invading assyrers, then later by an army led by the priest from Jerusalem to destroy any trace of that culture. Supposedly the temple in Jerusalem at that times was just a shack.

      The same scientists seriously doubted if there ever was a Moses, the crossing of the Read Sea, the egyptian slavery, etc. According to them the only real jews are the samatarians, about 1,500 of them still live in Israel, because their religion forbids a marriage to non jews. Others, who left the land, mixed with other nations or who are converts are not real jews!!! If we follow their reasoning, then there are only about 1,500 people in that area who can call themselves the children of the original tribe!

      I just noticed that alfa down below did a better job to comment on the jewish history.

  • Et tu, Bill?
    • piotr

      The USA is the only superpower on this globe, at least up to now, and the kind hand that feeds and protects you.
      Israel is a fly .... on the map, not the same class, mind you.

    • The threat with the suitcase bomb is simply ridiculous!
      After the collaps of the SU there are so many nuclear warheads gone missing, that if Iran wanted to hit the USA, they could long have purchased a couple of those.
      Netanyahu and the american zionists are grasping at the last straw to scare our nation. Pakistan is also ready to sell for the right offer.
      I seriously doubt that Iran would ever consider to nuke an US city, on the other hand I do not bet against an israeli false flag action to prove their point. Our security organisations, such as the CIA, NSA, FBI and great part of police are so infested with zionist agents that they would not stop such a crime, even if they had advance knowledge. It is a bummer when in a democratic land you cannot trust your own goverment and other organisations.

  • Netanyahu: Israel is 'by itself,' 'not bound by this agreement'
    • I wonder how did Canada and New Zealand get such a high score, they are always involved in the peace missions of the USA, see Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. All actors in such adventures should be scored equally.

  • David Cameron and liberal Zionist groups try to shore up support for Iran deal
    • Hollande has the worst rating of any french president since WWII and he grasps at straws, hoping for support from the jewish community.
      Nationalists are gaining support in France and Hollande will pay dearly for this new kissing friendship with Netanyahu. It is not wise to go against all other members of the UN SC and european EU partner states.

  • Did the U.S. undermine democracy in the Maldives because it wants to set up military bases there?
    • Hostage

      Thanks for your input, my information is a bit rusty, about 60 years old since high school days. History was and still is my hobby.

    • If we look into the history of Mesopotamia, we can see that there never was an independent country called Kuwait!
      After Turkey had to withdraw from arab lands at the end of WWI, GB established itself as the protector of the newly created land of Iraq.
      Soon the natives had enough of our stiff lipped friends and threw them out around 1926 or so. As a revenge GB gave that piece of land to the emir in Kuwait to cut Iraq off from the see, leaving them only the port of Basra.
      According to the history of Mesopotamia Iraq has all the rights to recover the lost territory called Kuwait, just like Ireland should demand No. Ireland back. Erin go brah, kick out the brits!

  • American Jews are 'endangered,' says Ari Shavit

  • Another AIPAC man joins State Dep't negotiating team
    • Why fool around with underlings, invite Netanyahu to chair the team, this way we can be sure that we get an agreement that pleases Israel.
      American interests? Who cares, they are not important!

  • Why Israel wanted Arafat dead
    • Who did the actual poisoning?
      We should look at those swiss bank accounts and see which one had a very large deposit after Arafat´s death!

    • Although Arafat was far from being an honest person, supposedly he accumulated around 50 million dollars in swiss banks, money that was donated to his nation.
      However, he still wanted to fight for the freedom of the palestinians and that was not in the long range interests of Israel.

      They already had Abbas and his consorts on the line, a much more manageable group of politicians, who wanted power and money at any costs. We can see what did Abbas achieve during the past 9 years since he is the chief of the PA, nothing!! He allows Israel to take more and more land on the WB and East Jerusalem and do not bother to take the necessary steps at the UN to secure recoignation for his people. Those swiss accounts must be loaded with the loan of Judas and the funds stolen from his poor people.
      They could use this opportunity to put real pressure on the occupiers, however I personally doubt if they do anything such. They are bought and paid for already, Palestina needs a new set of top politicians!

  • Gwen Ifill, USA Today question Israel's influence in US politics-- even as David Gregory beats Netanyahu's drum
    • We have the problem of the tail wagging the dog!

      The world doesn´t need Israel to make a deal with Iran, so why bother?
      Our president and Kerry should represent the interests of the USA and not be Israel firster, it is beshaming that Kerry must consult Netanyahu at every turn of the negotiations. If we have an agreement and Netanyahu doesn´t like it, it is just though luck!

  • Netanyahu's greatest fear: Linkage
    • lysias

      Was it not Truman who said: talk softly, but carry a big stick?

      Nuclear weapons are not for use, they are deterrents to any possible attack. Israel may bomb iranian targets now, because Iran cannot match the power of the israeli weapons, however, if Iran has a few nuclear warheads it is a game changer. It takes only 2-3 nuclear missiles and Israel stops being a country, on the other hand Iran is huge, it can take a lot more hits.

      Since Iran did not attack any of its neighbours since three centuries, I trust them, and in my opinion they having a nuclear arsenal will have a positive effect on the ME. Isreal certainly will stopp its wars and settle with the palestinians.

  • 'NYT' review casts Dershowitz as lovable contrarian
    • Dersh loveable?

      A couple of years ago he did a TV debate with Mr. Levy of Haaretz, consequently I wrote him an e-mail voicing my approval of Mr. Levy.
      In return he called me an anti-semite, (and I always though Mr. Levy is also jewish!), and instructed me to crawl back under the stone where I came from.
      Yes, a pleasant and loveable individual.

  • Klug targeted by McCarthyite 'dossier'-- because he will speak on anti-Semitism in Berlin on Kristallnacht anniversary
    • GL

      I visit the local jewish center regularly and personally did not notice any fear of anti-semitism there. On the other hand I second your opinion of the Central Commity, they do not represent the local jews, but the interests of the State of Israel. It is time that new, more liberal, commity members are elected, as their support of zionism will not lead to better relations in this country, but will encourage what they fear the most, new anti-semitism.

    • If one considers a critic on Israel als anti-semitism, then MW must be an anti-semitic blog, what is far from the truth.
      The internet is full of blogs, from the very left to the very right, many of them are written by totally crazy individuals. As my comments represents only my own opinions, one should not judge it as the new trend of politics in Europe.
      If one wants to feel hated, there are blogs for every kind of hate to reassure your fear, as the Bible says "those who seek will find".

      As long as human beings live on this globe we will have dislikes or even hate, it is part of our lives. We must make sure that such feelings do not turn into aggressions and criminal acts, I personally am disgusted with obese people, yet I would never consider doing anything harmful to them.

      In my opinion all this new outcry about anti-semitism in Europe is just another zio propaganda.

  • What comes next: Why secularism fooled me into thinking the two-state solution was likely
    • Mike

      There is one more variation, none of the three listed religions are based on facts, but on supertitions and outright fairytales, invented by very smart individuals for a certain purpose.
      In that case none of those parties have a valid claim on the land, based on religious grounds, but the inhabitants with the longest history should have the right to live there. The palestinians are there for at least 3,000 years, without interuptions, the jews came after 2,000 years absent. In case of a legal fight a judge would not have much difficulty to decide to whom to award the land.

  • AIPAC's 'unlimited' funds are greatest obstacle to peace, former British foreign sec'y says
    • I am not german native, however live in Germany since several decades, have a german wife and her relatives to rely on.

      The german government must be under tremendous pressure or blackmail, perhaps both of them, to toe the faithful line of the zionists. If a politiker ever dares to criticise the israeli doings in Palestina, his career is ruined, even if he spoke the truth!
      The MSM is just as mumm as the american counterparts, reports of crimes commited by the IDF never appear in newspapers or TV news. Newspaper columns are very pro Israel, it seems the palestinians just do not exist!
      The people, aspecially the younger ones, have very little interest in politics, and according to my experience Israel is a non-issue to them.
      On the other hand the neo-nazis are growing in numbers every year, so do their demonstrations, however they are against anything foreign, beside anti-semitism they really favour bashing turks, africans and arabs.
      However, this is a pan-european problem, rightwing parties in France, the Neaderlands or even in GB are gaining support.

      Suma sumarum, in Germany there is no sign of any new anti-semitism, they are busy to make a few euros more. I personally wish the young would pay more attention to politics and what their politicians do.

      There is a saying that " if you tighten the springs on an instrument too much, it eventually will break".
      That is what you zionists did for the last 68 years, putting on the pressure with the word "anti-semitic" if you did not like just about anything. The pressure cooker is about ready to explode, so watch it.
      Why don´t you go and plant a few olive trees for the palestinians and follow it up with a marching orders for those settlers. It may just save your skin.

      "why would one expect Israel to stop buying american arms...."

      Israel is not really buying any arms from us.
      First of all, we GIVE them newly developed arms to field test them for effectiveness on palestinian women and children. During the 1970s we gave them the F-16s, (or F-15s?), before our pilots could fly one of them.
      In addition they get a few billion cash every year to pay for those arms, so who is really paying the bill? Yes, we, the american taxpayers!
      I wish BMW or Mercedes would give me the cash and force me to spend it on their cars! I would do it with a huge smile on my face.

      I would like to break in at this point, as you are getting a bit too agressive on GL!
      First of all, I would like to ask you, if you saw on TV a report years ago, do you still remember where and when did you see it, or it just made so good impression on you that you still remember the subject, but not the date?
      During my 70+ years I have read and seen many thing that I did not forget, however the source may have slipped my mind!

      I don´t know where do you live and what kind of first hand experience do you have with the roma?
      Yesterday I quoted several documented cases here, a recent TV and statistical reports on the roma, however it was deleted.
      In my life I have seen and talked to many gypsies, or you may call them roma, and they certainly look different than other romanien citizens. I have several close friends of those.
      Can you see the difference between a pakistani- and a german-american?
      I think that answers your question.
      I would not dare to make comments on the different ethnicities in China, as I never been there. I feel here we have a lot of ideological comments from people who never saw a live gypsy and don´t know anything about their lifestyle. GL is right in many of her comments, if not all.

    • lefty

      The whole world could start complaining about such names as: hamburger, frankfurter, hungarian gulash, french toast, greek salat, etc., etc.
      On the other hand, I cannot see any problems with changing the name of a football club, after all it means nothing to a great part of this world and the fans would not like it less with another name.

      The gypsies came to Europe about 800 years ago and were always called gypsies!!
      I find it ridiculous that now we should call them "the Roma", although they have absolutely nothing to do with the romans or the Roman Empire, as they came from India.

      It is great that the world has no greater problems!!

  • What Comes Next: If the goal is to change U.S. policy, American Jewish opinion can't be ignored
    • And there are a lot more non-jews who also do not believe that Jesus is the Son of God!!
      Jesus was a jew, (if he ever lived as the Bible says), and if he did what he supposedly did, then we can say he was a prophet.
      He was made the son of god and elevated to diety during the 5th century at the Nicea convent. That convent also rewrote the Bible to fit the new catholic church, a process repeated several times since.

    • ziu dear

      They don´t serve = no wars
      do not work = no food
      Just leave them alone and they solve the problems they cause Israel
      themselves in a few years, (or how long can a human live without food)?

    • OlegR

      In the Boston area, you know Harvard, MIT, BU, etc., supposedly there are 15,000 israeli citizens with very high education.
      Do you think they belong to "the best"? Or the ever growing number of settlers make up that cathegory? Did you destroy a few olive trees lately?

    • benedict

      One immigrates to a country and one emigrates from a country.
      Jews leaving Israel emigrate!

    • benedict

      Thanks for your link, however I am not jewish and do not read hebrew!
      My vocabulary is limited to meshuge, shmuck und gefillte fish!!
      On the other hand you should know that one bird doesn´t make a spring and that rule also applies here.

      As far as the israeli society goes, one must not visit that country, the bad news you can hear all over the world, even birds say it: chip, chip, chip.

    • OlegR

      The romans and greeks also had slaves working in their homes and fields,
      however they certainly did not have the same rights.
      Do those arab doctors have the same pay as jewish ones, can they become medical heads of sections or even the hospital?
      I personally doubt it.

    • OlegR

      Why is that when someone does not praise something that is done or said by a jew it immediately registers as anti-semitic or dislike to jews?
      I personally do not find anything negative in what Kathleen said.

      A few years ago I had the pleasure to listen to Beinard several times on LKL and other shows, he did not impress me either. Hot air can blow a baloon up, yet is is still pretty empty, not much substance.

    • It seems the last capital of the zionist history is being written and the finale is near.
      Will it be a peaceful andante departure or a very bloody crecendo?

  • Liberal senators Markey and Murray join AIPAC in fighting White House opening to Iran
    • It is well known that our representatives in the congress and senate lose their connection to those who elected them in a shortest time and start serving mannon.
      These two congresspersons just joined the ranks of those who already sold their souls to the highest bidder, in most cases the AIPAC and similar other groups or persons. They don´t serve their people anymore, but first comes their own interests, in second place is their party and after that they may just think what can they do for their country.

      A good example is the Speaker Boehner. Although he had enough bipartisan votes in the house to pass the necessary laws to lift this blockade of passing the new federal budget, he refuses to do it, because those 40 or so fanatical Tea Baggers who want to bring down the government, regardless of the costs. For him it is more important to keep his Speaker position that he surely would lose if he calls a vote.
      So never mind the hundreds of millions of dollars lost every week, the lost prestige of this once great land, the millions of federal employees not getting paid, he serves only himself and his own group of traitors.

      One could ask; the people who sent him to Washington, will they do it again? After this fiasco? If one looks at the history of how the voters keep sending the same persons back to DC, we can guess that he will have another turn to serve himself!!

  • What Comes Next: Even one state may not be enough
    • Lefty

      I think you should read the newspapers and watch the news on TV more often, it seems you do not have the faintest idea what is happening in your home.

      What about hat thai young man who was beaten to death by hulligans in Berlin, the trials were just a few weeks ago? Or that african beaten to death on the street? Or talking about Thüringen, those 3 neo-nazis who shot 10 years ago 10 turkish and greek businessmen in the west, but came from your lovely state and after the killing returned there? The 2 men are dead now, but the woman is on trial right now in Munich. What about all those neo-nazi marches in Thüringen and Sachsen, shouting anti-foreign slogans?

      Judging from your writings you are a highly educated person, your english is superb, so I guess you studied anglistic and could be a highschool or college english teacher. Am I correct? Being an intelligent person you should notice what is happening in easten Germany, it is not nice!
      I certainly have other idea of a "pretty safe place".

    • Lefty

      Although usually I agree with most of your comments, this time I must correct you on above statements.

      I live in Germany, too, and long enough to know german customs, the language and their attitudes toward immigrants.
      They are devided into two classes; 1. from other european countries and 2. anyplace else from the world. Even the class 1. is devided between north european immigrants, they are the best and south europeans, like italians, greeks, yugoslavians, they are not as good.

      Europeans can become germans in a couple generations, however not the ones from Turkey, arab lands, africans or asians. You mentioned Rösler, a vietnamese, who came as a small child, speaks perfect german, yet he never be accepted as a german, because he looks different. The same goes for all those turks, arabs, etc. who speak perfect german, carry a german passport, yet behind their back they are called demeaning names.

      You coming from east Germany should know that especially in those once communist states immigrants from outside Europe are chased, beaten to death, their houses are burned down and treated as undesireable elements.
      Suma sumarum, one can become a german citizen, may speak perfect german, yet, if he does not look european, he will never ever will be accepted by the general population as one of them.
