  • Video: Israeli forces open fire on Palestinian demonstrators in Gaza killing seven
    • Russian intervention is Syria?! If we want to talk about "intervention" than we should mention the USA, GB, Saudi Arabia, France and Qatar, among others, but not Russia!

      Russia, and earlier the Sovietunion, has and had a friendly relations with that country for decades, it has a naval base there since the 1970s, and is the only military that was invited by the valid government of Syria. All the other ones mentioned above armed and trained mercenaries, spirited them into Syria through Turkey, financed the different revolutionary groups, many of them not even syrian, but from other arab countries. In other words paid mercenaries. The goal is to destabilise the Middle-East, so the NWO can choose their own dictators, like el Sisi in Egypt.

      Let us to be fair. The west tried for four and a half years to get read of Assad, without a real chance. He may be a bloody dictator, but he holds that country together and has his own supporters, without him who will rule that country made up of different nationalities and religions? It would be the same chaos as now, sunnies against shias, christians against alevites, kurds agains assyrer, etc.
      What you see is the neo-colonial forces trying to reconquer lost colonies, however Russia has no such intentions. Sure, geopolitics are dirty business, as we can also see in Ukraina, where the west invested billions to overthrow the russian friendly government and bring the country into the NATO, however no the russians, but the west is supporting all those bloody dictators in the area.
      I can assure you the russian intervention in that war made very little waves here in Europe, I am sure McCain and similar creatures in Washington are beating the war drums and blowing it out of proportions.
      One thing is sure, only with the cooperation of Russia can we end that bloody massacre, our politicians and generals have ansolutely no idea of international relations. The west had years to do it, so let the russian try it now. If they succees millions of refugees can go home.

  • Ayotte, Rubio and de Blasio are bought and paid for by the 'magnificent' Israel lobby
    • I can well remember when Rubio, just shortly before the elections in FL, had to go to Israel to get his final instructions on how to serve the people who elected him!
      Now he want to be the president of the USA, a quisling that should end up like the original norwegen one did.

  • Clashes break out across West Bank after Netanyahu declares ‘an all-out war’
  • 'Third intifada was launched,' Palestinian law student posted before carrying out fatal attack in Jerusalem
    • Mooser

      There is always a rotten apple in every basket of those fruits, however it doesn´t change the statistics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Maxi

      Please do not forget there were jews for over 2,000 years in Palestina and many more came after 1945, so we cannot trully say "on another people´s land". They were also natives, although in a minority, and also had the same rights as the palestinians.
      What they did after the UN gave them the rights to declare a state of Israel is the problem.

    • All my life I lived and worked with jews and found them talented, generous and friendly. There is no other so small segment of the world´s population that brought forth so many Nobel Price winners, inventors and academic "super" brains, therefore it is incomprehensive how can the same people go to Palestina, set up a fascistic state where even between jews they make a difference, and surpress, no, enslave, the endemic population.

      There is no denial that Israel is the last colonial power ruled by madmen. They could have set up a democratic state, where all have the same rights and write a constitution that fits our times, instead of going back 3,000 years into their myths. Many of those stories in the old testament were proven to be wrong and outright lies by successive israeli scientists. Just to name a few: the jews never were in Egypt, Moses never crossed the sea, there was no 40 years wandering in the desert, etc. I could go on, however we should not forget Adam and Eve, Abraham and Noah. These stories were copied from other civilisations, hundreds of years pior to the israeli migration to the "promised land".
      Would it be not funny if Greece, Germany, Italy or Egypt would base their laws on their old myths? Yet the jews in Israel do just that and the world says nothing!

      Abbas did what he should have done 15 years ago, after seeing that Israel has no intentions of honoring the Oslo Accord. However, the palestinian leadership was paid off by the USA and Israel and were busy stuffing their swiss or other bank accounts. He let the cat out of the bag at the UN and I have the feeling hard times are coming to our zionist friends. The US learned in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan that you cannot beat a people and win a war with tanks and bombs, if they are ready to fight and die for their freedom. Perhaps the palestinians learn that fighting in narrow streets tanks and heavy artillery are useless, the hungarians chased the soviets out of Budapest with molotov coctails and burned hundreds of their armoured vehicles. The soviets could bring in a great number of fresh troops, however Israel has no such choice.

  • 'NYT' openly counts Jewish politicians, and Obama and Clinton both reach out to Netanyahu
    • Should Hillary win the elections and become the president, than we have a huge problem. She is fully in the hands of zionists, a warmonger and the Iran deal will be in jeopardy. In that case we are back on square one, Iran will be free to continue with its nuclear program, eventually Israel starts bombing such centers and as a thank you thousands of missiles will hit Israel from the Hisbolla and Iran itself, as we did not have enough problems in that area right now.
      God gave the jews their Holly Land Israel and us americans the rights to control the world and bomb anyone who doesn´t agree with us! Two peoples chosen by God itself!

  • A guide to the worst refugee crisis since WWII
    • Mooser, I carry the same passport as you do, just happen to live in Germany, and it is not my job to tell the germans what to do and what not about about their future, and I have the feeling that they also do not need your advice! My intentions were to inform the MW crowd about this great problem facing the west.

      There is no need to keep beating on a dead horse, I have the feeling that you talk about something what you do not understand, experience is not what you can learn at Yale or Harvard!
      The USA caused all this problems in the Middle East, so if we want to talk about moral, then I miss the US offer to take a few hundred thousand of those refugees. We are responsible for their misery. The country is 20 times larger than Germany, with a lot of open space, we could easily put in the whole nation of Syria and Iraq! However, those dirty terrorists lurk all over and we cannot differentiate between the good ones and the bad ones, so let the germans take the chance, nicht wahr?

    • Don´t be hypocritical!
      The USA and Canada screen every immigrant, and if they bring money or have a profession that is beneficial to the country, they may come!
      What about those millions of south and central americans who would love to enter the USA, but that barbed wire fence on the border, the armed patrols, etc. make it impossible.

      You preach morality? We the USA are the cause of this great problem in the Near East, we destroyed the state of Iraq and supported the uprising in Syria and support every bloody dictator who dance to our tune.
      If we want to be moral, according to you, then we should take all the 5 million refugees from Syria and the same number from Iraq, without any selection. They all may come!
      You must learn that politics and servival have absolutly nothing to do with moral, each nation must do what is beneficial to the country.
      We do that constantly, don´t we?

    • Yes, Mooser, but that was a long time ago!!!
      Today we have a wall on the border to Mexico, where armed troopers pick up any intruders or let them die of thirst in the desert.
      On the airports they search you and if you have a dark skin, you get arrested and sent back where you came from.
      We should not be hollier than the Pope, hypocracy is most disturbing.

    • You are correct, if you talk about the USA!

      However the refugee problem in Germany ist nothing new, only the magnitude is unusual, every year more than 100,000 people come and ask for asylum. The problem is, german laws do not allow them to work until their status is clear and approved, and it takes an average of 8.5 months to have that done. Meanwhile the refugee, most of them do not qualify, because they come from the Balkan states., collect a monthly income, their rent is paid, etc.
      If they are turned down, according to german laws they have the rights to sue in a court, what may take a year or more. If they lose, they have the right to go to an appeals court, meanwhile years went by, they could not work, but collect social help, what in Germany may add up to more than a low paid german may earn. I know cases where a turned down person is still here after 7 years, man cannot deport him, because he will not reveal his home country.

      That is the reason why they all want to come to Germany or to Sweden, both countries pay to refugees several time of what they earn at home.
      I remember in the 1970s, when in the communist eastern Europe the following slogan went around: "go to Sweden and you do not have to work for the rest of your life"! Today Germany is in the same class, paradise on Earth.

      Not to be misunderstood, we must help those poor people, however this stamped will only turn the local population against them. Europe should have done what the USA , Canada, GB and Australia do, sent people to the refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan, collect those who fit into the society hear and the country benefit from their work, and fly them here. There are about 4-5 million refugees from Syria and Iraq and no way can take Europe all of them.

      The other problem is security. An example: a few days ago a train was sent from Munich to Berlin, about 400 miles, it started with ca. 520 refugees, none of them documented, and in Berlin there were only about 340 on the train. About 35% just took off, and we must ask, who were they and where did they go? What would the USA do if millions of refugees force their way into the country, refuse to be registered, do not follow police intsructions and just spread all of the country? Stupid question, I worked over 40 years on high security DoD installations and know what we would do. Stop or we shoot!

    • diasp0ra

      The facts are in the internet, you just have to look fort it! Let me help you.
      Germany has a birth rate of 1.2 child per woman, it is same in most western countries, the population sinks constantly. German politicians and the industry say for years that this country needs about 500,000 immigrants per year to replace the shortage of births.
      Chancellor Merkel never does anything foolish, so it is the opinion of many journalists and politicians from other EU countries, that her call for all syrian refugees was not so much because of humanity, but to take care of the employees problems, because those who come so far are usually young. What she forgot is that those migrants must cross several other countries to reach Germany and the peoples living there do not like the damages caused to their properties. Croatia allows refugees only since today, and a CNN report shows already what happens when they march through an area.

      You probably heard this." do you have a brain, please show it to me". It is not my opinion what I wrote, but a collection of them from journalists and high ranking politicians, both german and other european countries. Believe me, the majority of them and the german population is not happy of that Merkel did, and it will have far reaching consequences for this country.

    • Thank you for your comment, however we should agree that I have a bit more information on this subject, as since months I closely follow the events.

      The german Minister of Employement, (and I hope you allow her to be an expert on this), made the following statement in a speech to the Parlament: "at best we can use only 10% of the incoming refugees for employement, the rest needs a long time for training". First they must learn the roman alphabet, the german language and the high standard of skills required in this country.
      Since Germany expects up to 1 million coming this year, and half of million for the coming years, she indicated that this year alone up to 900,000 refugees go into the roles of social help, and that for years, estimated costs up to 10 billion euros per year! That is about 11.5 billion dollars.

      What do I see: I watch international coverage of this migration daily on several international TV and online. I see reports where many older people are reported to be alphabets and even the younger ones poorly educated. I watch US, english, german, hungarian, arab, russian and french reporters voicing their views and comments, EU politicians discussing the problems and what the local population thinks and says.
      Here I would like to add: great part of the refugees do not come from the war zones, but from the camps in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan, where they were already safe.

    • This refugee problem in Europe is getting out of hand and the the person who is heating it up is the german Chancellor Angela Merkel personally. Her massage two weeks ago that Germany is ready to accept all syrian refugees have an echo all the way to the refugee camps in No. Iraq, and tens of thousand are moving toward Germany, where "they build houses for them and Mother Merkel will take care of them", O-Tone of an interview seen on TV.

      In the EU there are 28 states and Merkel had no right to make such a statement, only all 28 head of those states can make such a decision. Now, when Germany is buried under the influx of refugees, suddenly all german politicians want other EU states to take in a part of the flood, invited by Merkel herself. Several east-european states refuse to do it, because they do not have the financial means to support them for years or even forever. Great part of the refugees have no professional skills, or even are analphabets and over 50 years old, therefore anyone can see that those are destined for the rest of their lives in a social net, getting paid without work.

      The Dublin agreement says that refugees must register in the first EU land they enter and apply for asylum. However since years Italy and Greece let them through and Germany was happy with that arrangement, because that country have no outside borders, therefore no initial entry point for refugees. This situation came to an end as hundreds of thousands came to visit "Mother Merkel".

      We cannot surplant a whole nation in middle of Europe, therefore it is time that the UN or NATO makes sure that war ends and those millions in refugee camps get a decent meal a day. The UNHCR reduced the payment to $13 per month per person, too much to starve, but not enough to live, and we either take care of them properly, what will be much, much cheaper, or millions start tracking toward the west.
      We should also reconsider any future plan to start and support civil wars to replace a dictator. Many of those countries will fell apart if there are no strong hands to keep them togather, as many borders were drawn by the western colonial powers, without regards for nationalities.

    • I live in Germany right in the middle of this new migration of millions and have a good contact to Hungary, so I can say not everything is so as you can read and see in TV reports.

      First of all, we must differentiate between real refugees, like those syrians and iraqis running for their lives, and economic migrants. The migrants in Germany to 40% are from Kosovo, Albania, Serbia, Romania and Macedonia, all are so called safe countries without war or political surpression. These countries are poor with very high unemployment and those coming are not real refugees, but migrants, and do not qualify as asylants. The payments they collect in Germany or Sweden are several times over what they can earn in their home country, so they come knowing that after 6 months or a year, after they are forced to return to home, they can do it with a nice savings in the bank.

      Hungary is constantly bashed by the media for its treatment of migrants. However, since years thousands cross the border illegally every month, who do not obey police orders, refuse to register as refugees and force their way into trains or busses on way to Germany. This coming weekend 20,000 are expected to cross into the country, that has 10 million population and is one of the poorer countries in the EU. They just do not have the means and finances to master this huge influx, just to see the magnitude, it is the same as 660,000 would force their way into the USA this coming weekend. Hungary had to master this without EU support, both financial and personal, meanwhile rich countries in the union just watch and do nothing, like France and GB. Also Germany until now, when they drown in this huge flow of humans.

      Yes, we have great problems with this huge migration, that is caused by the US and NATO wars in Iraq and in Syria, that was initiated by the west. Four years ago british and qatari special forces trained the first 1,200 "freedom fighters" in Libya, gave them plenty of weapons and money and spirited them into Syria through Turkey. A german journalist visited such a unit and found all members were nor syrer, but paid mercenaries from other arab countries, he saw at least a dosen different passports. Saudi Arabia finances that uprising ever since, their aim to get read of Assad and the shias under any circumstances, even if they destroy and depopulate that country.

  • Obama gets Wasserman Schultz-- and salutes her 'homeland' with a Netanyahu valentine
    • Our congressmen und women are elected to serve this nation and only this one. I would like to see a speech or comment from one of them, jewish or not, that does not include their obligations to that great state of Israel!
      Would it not sound funny, if the roman catholic ones would always include the Pope and the Vatican into their comments, or the moslems Mecca and Medina? Are our statemen not sure where their obligation should lie?

  • Aftermath of Iran Deal: a divided lobby, but Biden's camp says he has 'Jews'
    • It would be great if a new law could limit contributions to political parties to $5,000 per person or company per year! American presidential campaining ist the longest and far most expensive, with much less funding the parties could concentrate on the most important issues and stop all those insulting ads.
      The president should be elected by popular vote and that is it! We live in the 21st century, with instant communications, so do not need that theater imported from the 18th century, when a great part of the population could not read or write and travel was difficult.
      We could stop billionairs from buying our presidents, senators and congressmen, as they do now, as none of them would sell themselves for such a low amount. The power goes back to the people, as the Constitution so designed.

  • Pittsburgh Jews say Obama will allow 'Second Holocaust' while Israel's ambassador openly lobbies Capitol Hill
    • Hallo Annie

      I am back from vacation. I read a report on this a couple of years ago, there are commentators in MW who know a lot more about this. Sorry, all I have is my memory of the text.

    • Should an american president or the congress have the courage to cancel US military, political and financial support to Israel, they would not survive more than two years. They are like a new born baby, it cries a lot and causes great problems for all around it, but could not survive three days without those great tits.

    • I would like to add the following:
      The State Department has a ME section, that serves about 5 million israelis. (jews), and around 200 million arabs, yet there is not a single person with arab background working there, only jews!!!
      The walls are decorated with israeli flags and Star of David, pictures from Israel and invitations to visit that country. One must wonder, what kind of balanced policy can that office provide?
      I am sure Hophmi finds it just right, after all we americans are there only to serve israeli interests.

  • Dear Freshmen Members of the House of Representatives
    • After reading above now I hope that Rev. Werner at home will continue to speak out the truth! Sundays in his sermon he should inform his congregation of the lies we hear from our politicians and MSM, and ask his people to fight against the zionist occupation and our support of it.

  • Photos: New Yorkers rally for, and against, Iran Deal outside Schumer office in midtown Manhattan
    • The Iran deal matches in importance the deal with the soviets about nuclear weapons and the deal with China, that brought them and us a greater prosperity. If you would discard everything made in China, probably you would have not much left.
      I personally have great beliefe in the average jew, they are always in the front lines when it comes to freedom and rights for all. During the 1960s jewish lawyers risked their lives in the south to support the quest of our dark skinned bothers for freedom and equality, guaranteed them by the Constitution and Bill of Richts, but denied by racist politicians and population. I personally experienced it during 1961 in Charleston, SC, when two US Army officers, one white, one black, could not go to downtown together to have a dinner without risking an arrest by the local sheriff. And that almost hundred years after the civil war and freeing the slaves in the greatest democracy in the world!!!!

  • It's not bigoted to call out the Israel lobby over Iran Deal
  • Senator Blumenthal-- do the right thing and support the president
    • I find it very interesting that nobody ever mentions the 150-200 nuclear warheads Israel illegally constructed and the facts that they do not allow an inspection of their nuclear facilities and they never signed any treaties concerning such weapons.
      One should ask, why can Israel do it and get away without any protest from the world community? Why nobody has the guts to ask this simple question?

  • Time Warner executive moonlights as speechwriter for Netanyahu
    • We should not forget what Pollard did! He sold or gave Israel supersensetive information that in return Israel gave to the soviets in payment for allowing soviet jews to immigrate to Israel. Up to now it doesn´t seem to be too bad. However, acting on that information the soviets could roll up a net of US agents and sympathisers in several countries, many of them ended up in jails or were eliminated.
      Pollard should have had a death sentence, like the Rosenbergs, he did a huge damage to his country, the USA.

  • 'Why this bullsh-t?' Video of Israeli navy flotilla takeover
    • Israel has a long history of piracy on international waters. During June, 1967, israeli planes and boats attacked our navy ship SS Liberty, killing 37 sailors and wounding about 170, although it was plain that it is an american intelligence ship! We made a mistake of overhearing how the generals of the IDF planned to attack Egypt and other arab lands.
      President Johnson did what all our other presidents do when Israel commits a crime against US properties and/or citizens, he stuck his head in the sand and ordered our planes, already in the air to help, back to their bases, living our citizens wide open for additional attacks, as the israelis returned several times to kill and maim a few more of our defensless sailors.

  • Does Israel have a toxic personality? Ask Michael Oren
    • So Obama did not get a permission from Netanyahoo before he made that famous Cairo speech? (Pity, but he never followed up on his plans).
      Did Israel contact our president during June 1967 before they attacked the US Navy ship SS Liberty, killing 74 sailors and wounding another 170 or so? Now, there was no better time for a US president to really get pissed- off with our best friend in the ME, however Johnson was already bought by zionist interests, as also was Adm. McCaine, who ordered our planes already in air to return to base and so allowed a massacre of our men.
      Adm. McCaine was the father of Sen. Bomb-Bomb McCaine, who just as faithfully serves the interests of the only democratic country in the ME.

  • From Germany, With Hypocrisy: Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier visits the Gaza Strip
    • It disturbes me very much, however I notice constantly how hypocratic the german political system is. When it comes to Israel, they rather just keep their tongue still and say nothing.
      On the other hand I know several cases, where high ranking politicians dared to criticise the doings of the IDF and consequently their careers were destroyed.

  • The U.S. is at last facing the neocon captivity
    • ....americans generally favour military action....

      It is correct, this nation is so brainwashed, that if an arab or chinese say they do not like Coca Cola, it is immediately ranked as an anti US treath and requires a "defensive" military action.
      We are kept in constant fear since WWII. Remember the McCarthy witchhunt, seeing communist agents in everyone who liked red meat! How many innocent peoples` career was destroyed with senseless charges?
      Now we have the "islamic terror", they are all over and ready to invade the USA. The FBI produce cases, where they first instigate unbalanced persons, then later arrest them for planning terrorist acts. The greatest nation in this world has the pants full since decades, because our politicians and the MSM need it so for their plans.
      As far as the military/industrial takeover goes, it is true. The military orders expensive or useless items, (do you remember the $1,000 toilette seats for the Navy), in return retiring generals get a cushy jobs with one of the defense contractors. To be able to produce more and more planes, tanks and artillery, the old ones must be destroyed, therefore we need wars after wars. Since 1945 how many years did we have without a military conflict? I remember none.

  • Night of horror at Ben Gurion airport for two French music students
    • In my long life I have visited over 60 countries, many of them dictatorships, however I have never seen anything like what is contstantly reported from the Tel Aviv airport. This article is just one of many illustrating the crude and inhuman treatment of arriving passengers who do not wear a kippa.
      You mention arab countries. I visited quite a few of them, even talked to jews living there who did not have complaints about their lives and would not move to Israel under any circumstances! Perhaps that is the best indication that something smells terrible in the state of Israel when jews would not want to live there!!!
      It seems you are the one who is very naive and brainwashed, through that pink coloured glasses of zionism you do not see what huge damages do you do to the jewish cultures, (thank you Mooser for the info). Eventually all jews all over the world will end up paying one way or another for the crimes commited by the state you so defend or do you think the arabs will forever stay put and allow you to usurp their land?

    • In the good old days when we had the Iron Curtain separating the west and the "liberated" east european countries, I crossed into communist countries many times, however nothing similar have I ever experienced or seen.
      It looks like Israel is turning into a bloody hysterical apartheid state, where anyone not jewish is immediately a suspect or even an enemy of the state.
      The germans did not do anything to stop the the takeover of their country by sick nationalists, the jews of this world should learn from that tragedy. Say good bye to zionism and go back to your traditional jewish culture, because when that brown stuff hits the fan in Israel, it will spoil all of you all over the world.

  • By busting up peace efforts, AIPAC may have burst its own bubble
    • Felipe

      I agree! Regardless who was in power in Israel since 1948 the land grabbing and the supression of the palestinians were the same. Only the song they sung had different melodies, the words were the same, Eretz Israel at all costs. Or Golda Meir, Perez and consequent labor politicians did not do the same as Netanyaho does now, just remember Gaza 2008.

  • Israeli voters not impressed by Netanyahu's speech to Congress
    • I couldn´t agree with you more, there are may examples of such false flag attacks.
      June, 1967, the attack on S.S. Liberty by unmarked israeli planes and boats, the attack in Egypt during 1953, several attacks on jews in Iraq and Iran during the 1950s to force them to immigrate to Israel, etc.
      Not to forget the many attacks by Mossad in foreign countries, including the USA!

  • The Emperor's Nuke Clothes
    • Annie, thanks for your comment.
      In Europe, here I mean the average people, not the politicians, this affair has a terrible smell to it and people wonder who runs the USA. There is many ways to skin a sheep and I am sure Obama could have, if he wanted to, through diplomatic channels let Netanyahu know that he is not welcome at this time. Are we the only superpower left that is trying to run the world, but is unable to put pressure on Israel?
      I agree with you, american jews must decide who are they and stop this madness.

      Kay24, I have never said that the WH is responsible for the invitation, however if Obama can instruct the russian president Putin to clear up this recent murder of a politician, (actually it is not our business or responsibility), then he should be able to put pressure on a tiny land that will not survive without US financial, diplomatic and military aid. However it takes guts and Obama has nothing to lose as his time comes to end, so why does he take this insult without a word of protest? Thinking of future lucrative speeking tours and publication, financed by jewish interests?

    • Why is he doing it?
      What a funny question or have you not noticed yet that this country is being governed from Israel? Now, this is another silly question, as we all know it!! If Obama had cojones then he could have stopped this charade.
      Although I have very little respect for politicians, any party or nation as I consider them to be nothing but prostitutes selling their services to the highest bidders, we may have the worst of them all. Ours are made with rubber backbones, they can bend with the prevailing wind in any direction, as matter of fact even backwards to pick up a few tossed bills or coins.
      You mentioned other nations, where I believe most politicians have a pride in their national heritage, although statemen became very rare and hard to find.

  • Al Jazeera publishes leaked intelligence files showing Netanyahu lied about Iranian nuclear threat

    • crone

      No, I ment exactly what I wrote! Non jewish journalists, if they dare to criticise Israel or zionism in general, are usually shot down with charges of anti-semitism. If more jews would pen anti-zionist articles, then the zionists must invent another way to shoot them down, as it is not easy to match or even surpass the power of the word "anti-semite"!!
      By the way, a few years ago I listened to an exchange of words between Gideon Levy and our own Dersh. Later I wrote an e-mail to Dersh, voicing my agreement of what Levy had said. Good old Dersh called me a wurm, an anti-semite, and I should crawl back under the stone where I came from. Just to illustrate my point above.

      On the other hand I agree with your assesment of our jounalists, since large corporations control the MSM they become simple mouthpieces and write and say what they are told to do!

    • We need more jewish journalists like Gideon Levy!!

  • Boteach and Israeli ambassador say everything from BDS to Abbas places Jews under threat
  • Closed-door debate on divestment by U of Toledo student gov't to include officials from Jewish Federation
  • Auschwitz revisited
    • As I watched the motion pictures taken 70 years ago, I got tears in my eyes, although have seen them many times before. Not even a vicious animal would do such things and anyone denying the holocaust must be an imbecile.
      It is true that Auschwitz and Treblinka were the main compounds where the nazis killed mostly jews, however they had hundreds of others all over occupied Europe, where the majority were not jews, but gypsies, christians and other religions and their numbers are much higher than the jewish lives destroyed.
      I would like to see only once that all dead will be equally mourned, not only the jewish ones, they all have the same value.

  • 'NYT' and Matthews warn that Netanyahu speech to Congress could lead US to war
    • "Obama ...... throwing every single Neocon and Neolib still in his government out...".

      If he does such thing, then he will not have much government left! They sit not only in the WH and in the different departments, but also in all other parts of his government, such as the Pentagon, NSA, FBI, in all the think tanks advising him, all the way down to the local administrations.
      I always advocated the following: as you cannot serve two lords at once, or some say you cannot dance in two weddings simultaniously, all those individuals in goverment jobs who have US/israeli citizenships must be fired immediately. Look at the example of the present israeli ambassador to the US, he is also a US citizen and previously advised the republican party in Washington. The previous ambassador was also an US citizen serving the State of Israel, and if I am correct Netanyahu also may have a US citizenship, he grew up in this country.
      Those double citizens and their supporters are nothing but a fifth collumn, their allegiance is not to the USA, but to the jewish state. Why do we allow that foreign agents run our government, congress and the most important parts of governing bodies?

      As far as the average Joe and Jane goes. This country is probably the worst educated in the western world, political discussions are forbidden in a gathering, because it may lead to a disagreement, the MSM lies to its readers. How can one expect a major movement from this people, when their only interests are where do I get a good hamburger and what comes on the TV this evening? Sure, there are a few acceptions, like the visitors to MW, however we cannot change anything until millions of americans wake up and notice that their country was stolen. Will it ever come and will we live that long?

    • "The fact is that traditional states like Iran will be among the last ....... using nuclear weapons"!

      How true! Iran is an old cultural state, going back nearly 3,000 years, and they did not attack another state during the past 200 years! Which other state can make the same statement, certainly none of the western world.

      Let them have a nuclear weapon or two, what will happen? To the north there is Russia, to the east Pakistan and India, south Israel and to the west GB, France and the USA, all having untold numbers of them. Who in his right mind would expect that Iran ever starts a nuclear conflict and face such an opposition? Noone, outside Netanyahu and a few of his cronies.
      The zionists are not really afraid of Iran using nuclear weapons, but they know that in such a case their freedom of willfully attacking arab or/oder muslim nations will come to an end, as Iran will not stand for it. Suddenly the zionist nuclear blackmail of the Samson project would lose all its angst, as both parties know that in a nuclear conflict there are no winners. Israel is small, two or three such missiles can wipe out the whole population, Iran is large and have a much better chance to survive such attacks.

      I say no state can tell another state what can they have and what not! None of the present nuclear nations have asked anyone´s permission to arm themselves, not even Israel, so we just have to let the leaders of Iran decide what they want. Nuclear weapons guaranteed an unprecedented length of peace in Europe and in the far east, perhaps that is what we need to bring peace to the ME.
      I may be wrong, nuclear proliferation means there is an increasing chance of an accidental start of war with such weapons, however we just cannot dictate our will forever to the largest power in the ME.

  • How a culture remembers its crimes is important: A review of 'American Sniper'
  • Obama won't meet Netanyahu during 'bizarre,' 'historic,' 'unprecedented' visit (Updated)
    • President Obama said many things during and before his terms, however kept very few of his promises! I will be pleased if he vetos anything coming out of congress what is not beneficial for our nation, however I certainly will not hold my breath. I simply do not trust any of the politicians and he belongs to that group of humans, so do not be surprised if he backs down again!

      "higher percentage of jews would be upset if family members married a Gentile".

      During my young days in Boston I witnessed the following two sad examples:

      1. A good friend, christian and brilliant pianist, fell in love with a jewish girl from an orthodox family. After her father found out that he is not jewish, he forbade her to see him again!!
      2. Two good friends, she irish, he jewish, lived together for decades, because both of their conservative families forbade such a marriage and they did not want to offend them.
      You also find this mentality with other religions or nationalities, italian girls must marry italians, irish only irish, catholic only catholic, chinese only chinese, etc., etc. In the USA, the so called melting spot for nationalities, that procedure is not working yet, different nationalities or religions live side by side, but mix very little, at least in the first or second generations. Even in New York City, there is a german town, a hungarian town, Chinatown, etc.

      By the way, my wife and I we are of different nationalities and religions, my christian brother married a jewish lady, we classify people as good or bad for their characters and deeds, nothing else matters.

    • Mooser, funny, however please do not invite me for a dinner when you serve such wines, not that I believe that you drink it.
      Good food requires good wine and we live only once.

    • And shortly before the attack on Charlie Hebdo three moshees were fire bombed in Paris. Do we see an organised provocation to incite twist between those two religions?
      Who would profit, Netanyahu? Remember the attacks on jews in Iran during the 1950s, commited by the Mossad to force them to immigrate to Israel?

      By the way, jewish rabbies rushed to those fires to offer their help, not a catholic priest showed up, as far as I know. Jews and moslems lived in relative peace side by side for many centuries, until the zionist showed up.

    • You find the same in all nations, this kind of mentality goes all the way down to neighbouring communities, both thinking the others are not so smart as we are.
      It is a sad human nature, we don´t like most anything about others, or how many neighbours really like eachother?

    • Yes, you find hypocracts in all religions, those who do not believe in God, but want to be sure just in case.
      John Hopkins University in Baltimore did a long research on a possible jewish gen, yet found none, meaning the so called jews come from many different groups of peoples and the only common dominator among them is the religion. For a so called jew, who is not religious, but insist that his son marries a jewish woman, who also may be an atheist, this wish is a hypocracy at the highest level.
      According to many there is no such thing as a jewish nation or race, just like there is no such thing as a catholic, islamic or buddhist race or nation, they are simply religions, its members come from different nations and races.
      My question is: can a person who comes from an atheist catholic family, he being also an atheist, can say that I am a catholic? The catholic church say NO!
      For me a religion has the same value as which club do you belong to, or do you prefer white wine or red wine. Personal choice, nothing else, and I would never chose my friends on the base of their choice of wine!

  • It's not the cartoons-- a contrarian perspective from a Muslim cartoonist
    • And our indecent and corrupt leaders, many of them from dictatorships and a neo-colonial country, use the death of those unfortunate people to show how united in their sorrow are.
      We all saw on TV and newspapers the line of them marching in front of supposedly hundreds of thousands of demonstrators. In the middle first Sarkozy, then in the very same place suddenly Netanyahu!
      Very impressive, however new photoes appeared in the internet showing that it is nothing but a bluff, a setup, as behind that group of politicians, their personal and guards THERE IS NOTHING; BUT EMPTY STREET AND SPACE!!!!

  • When blasphemy is bigotry: The need to recognise historical trauma when discussing Charlie Hebdo
    • I agree with Chloe in her assesment that what may be legal according to prevailing laws, may not be ethical on moral gounds, and ethics, (or true religion, if you prefer), is more important for a society than rigid laws.
      In my simple opinion ethics are the same as what religions usually try to install in us, without that superduper being in the sky and all that mambo-jumbo of rewards or punishments after death. I do to you what I wish you do to me is rule enough for a decent life.

    • Charlie Hebdo is on the right road to success! Their new sponsors invested millions to save the magazine and with a publication of 5 million copies this week it was a great investment, as on e-bay there are small fortunes offered for a copy of good old charlie.

      I agree with most of above and France can look ahead to the same curtailment of freedom as we in the USA experienced after 9/11. Germany already have a new anti-terror law, whatever it may mean, and I am sure other countries of the EU will follow the lead. Someone said once that "Democracy is lost on the ignorants" and I am curious how the french will react to any tightening on their rights. Americans did not complain at all, a nation of sheeple.

  • Why I am not Charlie
    • " Are christians worried about being herded into Progressive concentration camps?"

      During history it happened many times, although with less propaganda afterwards.
      Around 1914 the turks marched christian armeniens through the desert without sufficient water or food and so killed about 1.5 million of them.
      Russian communists sent a lot more christians into gulags without any cause, tens of millions died between 1917 and 1945.
      Even the nazis locked up christian priest, ministers and others who did not agree with their takeover as early as 1933, before they turned to the jews, and in those concentration camps there were also millions of christians.
      Not to forget the romans who loved to crucify the early christians, or the barbarians in Europe who had for them fine methods to die.
      As you see, no religion is safe when their enemies are in power.

    • I believe in freedom of speech, however I also believe in respect of others and good manners! My freedom of opinion and speech is limited to the point where it intrudes on the rights of others and is insulting to a great number of humans or a religion.
      The caricaturists of Charlie Hebda had ample warnings that what they do will eventually lead to violent reactions. Their offices were burned down during 2011 and several of them were since under police protection, yet they disregarded all signs of warning and now paid with their lives. This should also be a warning to all of us, the century of surpression and humiliation of arabs is coming to a screeching halt, they fight back.

      This hypocracy turns my stomuck! It is sad that over 20 people had to pay with their lives for what a few irresponsible journalist did, however we the west with Israel kill that many of them every day or two. Where is the outrage over those killings?

      We do not have to limit our observation to Charlie, the MSM does the same practically every single day with negative reports and remarks on the muslims. It seems there are only bad muslims and only a dead muslim is a good muslim. The same song we had for the american natives. Perhaps it is time we deal with that part of the world eye to eye and stop bombing their cities and do not support their dictators and despots. What is good for us should also be good for them!

  • The moral hysteria of Je suis charlie
    • If the following is known by the MW crowd? The son of ex-president Sarkozy married a rich young jewish heiress, one of the journalists at Hebdo wrote a satirical article about this event. The author was requested to withdraw it and to appologize, he refused with the words: " I would rather lose my balls"! (It would have been no great loss, as he was 80 years old already)!
      Consequently the magazine fired him!

      So much for the freedom of press at that publication.
      The present prime minister Vail, when he was the interior minister cancelled all shows of a french-arab comedians known for his anti-semitic jokes. So the great republic of France, the source of liberté, egualité and fraternité, have different versions for free speech and all these marches are organised hypocracy, great for the otherwise blank faced politicians of that country and the rest of Europe.

    • The EU has many serious problems, very high unemployement and the states have spent more money than they should, and what do their heads of government do ? They all march to Paris to join the flashmob celebrating the death of 20 human beings. I must wonder how many millions of euro does this "show of solidarity" costs and could it not be put to a better use?

      Newspapers and magazines overdo eachother with anti-moslem headlines, looking for a larger than normal sales, TV talk shows twist history to fit their stories and all of them warn of coming islamic terror without bothering to name the cause. The roots of this is the wars we fought on islamic lands, the killing of hundreds of thousands of their women and children, our support for their despots and dictators and the hopelessness of millions.

      To Charlie Hebda I must say the following: if you tease and torment a dog until it bites you, then you have no rights to call it a vicious dog! We radicalized the islamic world and they play this game not to our standards.

  • Don't let's go to the war of civilizations again
    • DoubleStandard

      I suggest you read the Talmud once more, it seems you missed the best parts about jewish violence. Like when Joshua conquered the land, he killed all inhabitants of those city-states, that means men, women and children, so he will not have to fight them again. Kind of reminds us of the wars in Gaza. Or Esther.

      Talmud also tells us that having sex with a 3 years old is not a sin, (boy or girl), goyims are here to serve the jews, in front of a jewish court always the jew must win, regardless who is right and killing a goy is also not a sin!
      I also must refute your observation of christianity. That religion was spread with utmost violence, millions had to die if not converted. Even today we have millions of christians killing eachother, (the irish civil war or the 50 million born again US evangelists), or in the past, (the 30 years war in Europe, etc.).
      I must admit jews had the least religious bloodlettings, however I base that on their relatively low numbers and on the facts that they never were in power during the past 2,000 years until Israel was established. Once in power they do exactly what the christians and moslems did for centuries, namely waging war after war. Perhaps if we want to have peace we must eliminate all three Abrahamic religions and send all their holy men to the gulags.

  • Is Abbas’ war crimes bid against Israel a big bluff?
    • "the PA is something other than a Quisling operation".

      Exactly my opinion, the PA is a group of paid comedians, Quislings to their nation, who sing and dance to the tune given to them by Israel and/or the USA. I have watched for years their tactics and could not detect any serious movement that would bring that nation an inch closed to their freedom!
      Israel made it impossible to have a two state solution, so the only way is a one state called Palestine where all have the same rights and the laws are not based on old antiquated religious books, but on modern democratic laws. Demographic developments will kill any dream of a jewish state, as the palestinians have a much higher rate of birth that eventually guarantee them a majority. At that time Israel will have either a South African type of society, where the jews depress the majority with military might, or comes the inevitable takeover of power by the arab majority. Not an Eretz Israel, not what Ben Gurion and consequent israeli leaders dreamed of, but hopefully a free and democratic Palestina.

      Thank you for pointing out where I may have heard above statement about the ME Section. It sounds almost word by word what I wrote, so it must be true!

      Good 50 years ago I worked with our military counterintelligence in Europe and my team captured two female communist spies from the east. Normally we interogated them and eventually turned them over to the germans, however not this time, because one of them was jewish. After a short interogation Mossad agent showed up and she was turned over to them and they all left for Israel. So as you see, it is not new that we buckle down to zionist interests, that woman may have ended up in the USA and spied on us.
