  • Obama 'betrayed' American Jews and Trump is a 'swineherd' -- Bernard-Henri Levy
    • Remember our intelligence ship SS Liberty, in international waters, attacked by israeli warplanes and speedboats, killing 74 US sailors and wounding around 170!
      Because they monitored the israeli plans to attack Egypt without warning, never mind declaration of war. The IDF tried to sink the ship to destroy any evidence of their treacherous plans and the even more treacherous Johnson and admiral McCain made sure no help came to them and all secrets were buried in deepest vaults.
      74 young americans had to die, who cares!

    • No, he lives in France, where he enjoys free speech, what the native palestinians do not have, safety and an unearned glory. He would never emigrate to that wonderful jewish state he so much praises.

  • Antisemitism and its useful idiots
    • Nobody in his right mind would want a jew free USA, this country benefited unproportionally from jewish scientists, artists and inventors, we would be a poorer country without them.
      However, what we want is american citizens who practise the jewish religion, (if they prefer to do so), and not zionists, who support Israel with all means at their disposal, even spying on their country that provides them a safe home, and always work against the interests of this country to further a zionist cause!!

  • On eve of Paris talks PA support for two-state solution not shared among Palestinians
    • According to the latest news Abbas will not attent the Paris conference!
      One should ask him, what are his plans to free his people, the palestinians? After the UN vote he already should be at the ICC in The Hague filing charges against israeli occupation, instead he refuses to go to a very important conference, important for Palestina.
      In my opinion he has absolutly no interest to change the status quo. His mandat ended good two years ago, so he is holding that office without proper authority. He refuses to call elections, because he knows that most likely he will lose it and must give up his office. Besides, in my opinion, he is just a paid agent of israeli/US interests.

  • Mostly-Jewish golf club is roiled by a prospective member's stance on Israel-- Obama's
    • According to very reliable sources NYC invested millions of taypayers money in Trump to avoid his bankrupcy and consequent legal and financial problems, as Trump always worked with monies of other people. One must wonder why he still refuses to publicise his tay returns?

    • Not sad, we all get what we deserve, at least most of the time. He is a pathetic and cowardly little man, who can read speeches well, but climed up on a tree that is just too tall for him and did not know what to do at those hights.
      Now let´s see what our new wonder boy will do?

    • I find this funny!
      Nearly 60 years ago I worked at the Brookline Golf Club on some weekends to make a few dollars extra. Although the club was located near to the heavily jewish populated suburbs of Brookline and Newton, there were no jewish member at that time, so inquired about the reason.
      I was told: if you allow a jew into the club, he will bring his family, neighbours, friends, etc. and before you know they take over the club, with jewish holidays, jewish food, etc., and we christians have nothing to say anymore.
      So now a heavily jewish membered club in Washington doesn´t want the President of the USA, because his policy on a foreign country? They should check how it was in Boston good 50 years ago and what was the fear of those members at that time.

  • In 'breathtaking' UN vote, Obama changed his policy on Israeli settlements, making them a war crime -- Finkelstein
    • Just a bit of correction.
      The UN Resolution did not make the settlements a crime, according to International Laws they were always a crime! As many other crimes commited by the state of Israel, their most democratic military, the Mossad, etc. however the world had no guts to voice their opinion and call it what they really are.
      I am not lighting fireworks yet, let us wait until Trump sits in the WH and his reaction to the resolution. A game is not over until it is over.

  • A bi-national, democratic state is the only option Israel and Kerry has left us with
    • Yes, a two state solution would have worked, before 1967!!
      Anyone, who today takes these words in his mouth, is kidding itself and his fellow believers, as anyone with a little brain in his head knows that the zionist expansions after the 1967 war and the consequent settling of palestinian real estate made any such idea impossible! The West Bank looks like a swiss cheese, in the holes live the palestinian majority, but has no connection to other areas, unless they surpass jews only areas and get shot doing it!

      My idea of the solution that will not taste any zionist:
      1. Jews must go back to the 1948 borders approved by the UN.
      2. Zionist settlers, who still live in the forgone past, must return to the lands where they came from, because with them there is no chance for a peaceful coexistance.
      3. Palestinian refugees return to the vacated settlements on the WB and in Jerusalem.
      4. Jerusalem will be declared a holy city, free of zionist and moslem politics, and governed by an elected body of christians, moslems and jews. (Similar to the Vatican).
      5. Israel and Palestina, within their new borders, will be democratic countries, where religion and races will not guarantee a better life and where politics and religion will be separated. Rabbis and mullahs have no voices in politics.

      Now it is an open season, shoot me for above idea, what in my opinion is the only real choice, beside wars for the next hundred years or so. Israel cannot win all of them, even GB, a superpower once, eventually had to leave the colonies.

  • Why Obama waited 8 years to take on Netanyahu
    • Nobel Prize for Kerry? Are you serious? Obama already got one before he did a single thing, and he stayed with that position, not doing a single thing!
      Nobel Peace Prize is cheap, easy to get, mass murderers got it, therefore for an honest person it is a disgrace, an insult.

  • John Kerry gives the 'separate but not equal' speech to Israel
    • Israel wird always named as the best and greatest ally and friend of the USA!
      My question is, the leach, that sucks my blood, not caring how much of it is left in me, ist my greatest friend?
      The damm is broken and I hope the world gets its senses back and treats Israel according what it is, a colony that subjugates and kills the natives, ignores all UN resolutions, and steadily builds Erez-Israel on lands that belong to others.

  • Netanyahu accuses Obama of betraying 'commitment' to Israel and initiating U.N. resolution
    • Exactly what I said to friends just a few hours ago: He should have recoignised Palestina as a state, voted yes and stopped all help to Israel, and these 6-7 years ago!
      He is a coward and in my opinion without Michelle he would have never become a president. I am sure even now he had sleepless nights after the UN vote, how could I be so careless!

  • 'NY Times' trivializes UN abstention, reducing it to 'tense and tetchy' relationship between Obama and Netanyahu
    • This vote doesn´t mean anything unless the palestinians act fast before Trump redones the whole thing. Since we cannot trust Abbas, who is nothing but a paid agent of Israel/USA, so who in the upper ranks of palestinians have the courage to go fast to the International Criminal Court, ICC, in The Hague? I personally see noone.

  • Hell just froze over: the New York Times runs an article saying Zionism is racist
    • A few days ago I watched a presentation on the origins of mammals and had a chance to see my great-great-aunt that lived 220 million years ago!!
      They looked like hamsters today and had about the same size. I was very happy that I don´t come from an ancient rats family, it would be debasing!

      On the same thought, who cares where my gens originated, the only important part is what am I, not who was my grandfather or which hamster was my original creator 220 million years ago.

  • Stephen Cohen calls out liberal media for demonizing Russia, slurring Tillerson and stigmatizing all dissent
    • The West spent billions to get Ukrania into our camp, according to Ass. Secretary of State Neuman the USA alone spent 5 billion dollars to get that country out of the russian sphere. We sent our military to train their army, (I personally managed ones coming back from Ukraina), and the CIA also has a battalion of agents there.
      Since Putin crossed our plans, took back the Crimea with the naval base Sevastopol and supports the russian nationals living there, he became an all out object of false claims and outright lies by the western politicians and press. Even in Europe if you read newspapers or listen to TV reports, they all repeat the same nonsense unisono, practically word by word. That puts an end to any idea of a free press both in the USA or western Europe.
      It seems certain groups of powerful individuals have decided that the few years of peaceful co-existance with Russia must end, because if you produce weapons you also must have wars, otherwise demand will not keep up with the production, and with wars one can make huge profits.
      Although Trump is not what I wished for a president, his idea of friendly contacts with Russia makes sense to me. The USA tried to conquer the whole globe, either with wars or with bought governments, however just like any other empire we are coming to an end. Let others have influence, a peaceful coexistance is better that the constant wars we wage since 1941! Since WWII we were unable to win a single war, we lost hundreds of thousands young people and billions of dollars for nothing, therefore we need a very rapid change of politic.
      Having succesful businessmen in the government may be beneficials, perhaps they will not take years to make a simple agreement with our opponents, as diplomats usually do. I say, give them a chance, worse than Bush and Obama they cannot do.

  • Barghouti warns Trump that moving embassy to Jerusalem would be shocking violation of int'l law
  • Santa Cruz church becomes first US congregation to boycott HP for role in Israeli occupation
    • Ossinev

      I lived and worked most of my life among jews and must state that they have an addiction to complaining. It seemed that whatever happened it was always against them, forgetting that such negative changes effected all of us. As matter of fact, if you look at history, it seems jews could always complain, right or wrong. During WWII over 50 million human beings died, however now, 71 years later, we only hear about the jewish suffering, and that on every single day!!

    • I used HP products most of my life, as matter of fact presently still have a printer, copierer and fax monster, although around 10 years old. Is it OK if I keep it even if I will have problems to sleep after reading this acticle? I wonder what will HP do?

      A long time ago I learned the following: you cannot learn anything from yourself, regardless how smart you are. From those who always agree with you the chances to learn something new is also slim, you can only learn from those who disagree with you and have other ideas, whatever they may be.

  • US Senate quickly passed the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act
    • When something ist forbidden, then it becomes even more enticing, during the prohibition people wanted to show that they do what they want and drank all that cheap gin made in bathtubs.
      One could ask one question: why is Israel the only country on this globe that cannot be criticised, does it have to do with God picking them to be his/her/its favorits?
      Or another: why are we wasting all those billions of dollars when we know that it will never survive history?

  • Jimmy Carter's proposal to recognize Palestine is dissed by all the usual suspects
    • Funny you mention the Austro-Hungarian Empire. There the austrians gave the orders, the hungarians had little rights, and the rest had to keep their mouth shut, like the palestinians in Palestina. Like all empires, where one nation conquered others by force, it also fell apart, living many little countries, now mostly under the umbrella of the EU.
      However there is a very great difference, as all nations in that empire lived there for a 1,000 years or longer, in Israel immigrants from dozens of nations, who at the beginning couldn´t even understand eachother, are the colonists, the only one in the 21st century. Israel is a theocracy, where ancient beliefs and the rabbis have the say. A few days ago I watched an israeli film on the problems of a divorce in that country, rabbis are the judges and the ceremony is probably 3,000 years old. Unbelievable in a world of 21st century.

  • FL State Sen. Dwight Bullard opposed an anti-BDS measure -- and lost his job
    • This shows very clearly of what I think of politicians, "they are a bunch of rubber necked, backboneless, opportunistic individuals, who should not be trusted with managing a great nation"!!!! Prostitutes have better characters!

  • 'Tis the season, to boycott!
    • Annie

      I would like to comment on your comment to Just.
      My question to Nada was what did the palestinian profit from the worldwide BDS. You listed many little things that YOU may consider is benefiting those people, however please ask one of them in the West Bank or in Gaza. I doubt they would agree with you.
      I know you try to justify the work of MW, it is great to be able to discuss the problems in Palestina, however compared to the needed actions we only make waves in a bathtub.

    • Yes, Raphael, they all have hearts of gold!

      The palestinians bomb and shoot themselves, Gaza built the wall so their people cannot escape to Israel, they like the occupiers so much that they built roads for them, what they themselves will not use, not wanting to disturb their guests.
      Jews like to have swimming pools, so the old inhabitants gave them their share of the scarce water, cut down their orchards not wanting to block the fine view of the israeli settlements. Arabs always liked to go through control points, it is very exciting not knowing will they be shot or not when passing through, and heck with travelling, it is so beautiful looking up at the new zionist towns, where the sewerage is directed at their homes and fields. Inhaling teargas makes the day for many of them, not forgetting the butts of rifles in the ribs and police batons on the head.
      I could go on, however we all got the message, except you, Raphael!

    • Hallo Raphael

      So you are a pacifist, you don´t join the IDF, but gladly watch when they do their dirty work! How human, in Germany good 75 years ago there were millions of your kind, they did not join the nazi party, however did not bother to save the life of a single jew!!! They all were pacifists!
      If you are not a jew, what are you doing in Israel? Trying to boost the headcount in favour of zionists?

    • BS, SandraLLAP

      Not the palestinians, but the israelis go back on any agreement, like the Oslo one, steal more and more of the land that should be part of future Palestina, cut up the land with jews only roads, and destroy old arab towns, wells and orchards! As the zionist already planned in the 1930s, you want all the lands that supposedly once was Israel, and will do anything to achieve it.
      The present palestinians leadership was bought a long time ago, they do what the USA/Israel tells them to do, Abbas is a lapdog.

    • Congratulations, Raphael, you just became a member of the last colonising nation on Earth!! How does it feel to be responsible for the many dead palestinians, you kill a few of them almost every day, your IDF and police does it in your name?
      As far Judea and Samaria go, those names are only a small part of the history of Palestina. Before Joshua showed up and butchered the inhabitants of those city-states, like Moab, so the jews will not have to fight them again, there were peoples living there for thousands of years. Don´t they count? The Palestinians, previously called the Philisters, were living there long before the jews came, don´t they have a stake in the area? How about the arabs, being there about 1,400 years, a lot longer than the ancient Israel ever was, they don´t count either?
      If all peoples would have the rights to move back to the area where they lived 2,000 years ago, what a chaos would that cause? Or do you think the so called jews, as half of them are not, have these rights, however the palestinians, who live there since 3,000 years, have not?
      What a twisted idea of fairness.

    • Yes, my friends, we live in a real world and the politic must match it! I personally am also a half baked idealist, however had to learn that mashing my head againt a wall will not bring it down, contrary to my head.
      Although good 90% of israelis have no hebrew forfathers, one even says that around 30% are not even jewish, but immigrants to a better life from the Sovietunion, they will stay there until we have another government in Washington, who is not bought and paid by zionist interests. Don´t ask me if we live long enough to see it!

    • You may be right, Nada, however you must provide an example of how did sanctions change history, and I do not mean putting pressure on your local drug store not providing your favorit icecream.
      Putin was elected in Russia, also not a dictator, and we decided to sanction that country because of russian policy toward Ukraina, where according to Ms Numan, Ass. Secretary of State, we invested 5 billion dollars to bring them into our camp. In other words we financed the Maidan uprising and those fascist batallions using the swastica as a symbol on their banners. Since the sanctions the popularity of Putin increased to 80%, the nation lines up behind their leader, Russia has new allies with Iran and now Turkey, an old NATO member, and our importance is nosediving in the area. Just another example of sanctions going wrong.
      Just ask, what did Palestine profit from the worldwide BDS movement? De nada, nothing, only a sanction of the US against Israel would change history, because they are 100% dependent on us, however it will never come.
      Do you want changes? Bring a million people demonstrating in Washington for their rights, clog up the city and put pressure on the Congress. Educate the voters, publicise the wrong doings of political parties and their leaders, put your finger into their wounds. It may take time, but it is the only sure way, outside an outright revolution with a lot of blood spilled, what none of us wants.

    • A word about boykotting or sanctions.
      The US did both to Cuba for 50 years, however never achieved the removal of Castro and his gang, only the people were damned to suffer for a half of century. The same goes for our sanctions against N. Korea, Saddam Hussein, Iran, etc., they just don´t work.
      Castro chased away Batista, also a bloody dictator, and did we at that time acted diplomatically, then Cuba would have never became what it was and still is.
      The same lesson applies to our female citizens, you can catch a lot more flies with honey than with vinegar!

    • Never judge a person by what he says, but what he does, politicians, oder those who want to be like Trump, say a lot without really considering the consequences! They usually say what the mass of voters want to hear. On the same venue Trump will not do half of what he promised to do.
      Angela Merkel is considered to be the most powerful european politician, a magazin even called her the Empress of Europe. (How painful, it was a US one!)
      During 2003 at the party convention she made a very passionate speech, promising, if she will be elected, to make her party great again. She listed what she will do just to achieve it.
      Consequently she was elected to head her party and during 2005 she was elected to be the kanzlerin, the head of german government.
      Up to now, 11 years later, she did not institute a single change what she promised during 2003, is loved by a majority not only european, but also american politicians, and although she made many mistakes that costed the nation countless billions of euros, it is almost certain that she will be elected again next year, the fourth time!
      What lection can we draw? Simple, democracy is lost on most nations where the majority is ignorant of events and has the herd mentality. It is easier to watch a few brainless TV shows than to dig into important information on how the nation is being managed., who should not be reelected and who should go to jail.

  • Thanksgiving in Palestine
  • Donald Trump picks anti-Muslim intel officer to be national security adviser
    • Although I judged both candidates as not worthy to become the president of this country and like millions of other citizens wished for two others, on the long run I decided that Trump just may be the less evil. However, I still did not vote for him.
      Now watching his picks for important positions I am getting a bit nervous, are we heading back to the McCarthy area, when anything in your past, even voicing a bad joke, could be used against you to ruin your future.
      I hope the Senate and Congress have enough cool headed individuals to keep him on the ground, the world has enough doubt about the validity of our highly praised democracy.

  • After years of careless accusation, Dershowitz says anti-Semitism charges must be 'very careful'
    • I could not enter the blog for weeks, what happened??!!!!

      About Dersch. A few years ago I watched a discussion between him and Mr. Levy of Haaretz, whom I respect very much.
      A wrote an e-mail an Dersch, voicing my agreement of what Levy said. In his reply he advised me that: "I am a cretin and should crawl back under the stone where I came from"!!
      In other words we had a friendly discussion, typical of Dersh, and since I said the same what Levy did, does he consider him also to be a cretin?

  • Let's talk about Russian influence
    • A few years after the incident I met one of the survivors at HQUSEUR in Germany. They were really scared to even talk about it, threatened with courtmarshal and even jail.
      This in the land of democracy and free speech.

    • I am impressed by your positive attitude, however I don´t want to belong to that 1% left over!

    • Hophmi

      "our current enemy Russia, (and I add here the name of Putin)"

      Let´s say that I am in the position of knowing the situation, both military and political, between Russia and the West.
      There is an army of ignorant individuals in the west who still doesn´t realize that the old SU is gone since 25 years, it fell apart into 16 individual countries! Russia has less than 150 million inhabitants facing about a billion western citizens who have the mightiest military, the most sophisticated weapons, the most aggressive political institutions and the press. Yet there is not a single day goes by that we do not hear or read how dangerous and aggressive Russia and its leader Putin is.

      Putin annected the Crimea after its main naval base was in danger of falling into the hands of ukranian ultra right fascist bands, however only after good 80% of the population voted for it.
      We cry foul and demand a withdrawal, although the Crimea never belonged to Ukraina until Hrushchev decided to move borders illegally, without the consent of the High Soviet.
      We took the Kosovo from Serbia with force, after we bombed them for weeks, killing hundreds of civilians. According to our politicians and press it was legal and according to internantional laws, although that area belonged to the serbs for over a thousand years!

      We have angst of the russian military, yet is was the NATO who moved to the russian borders, (by the way breaking a silent agreement), have military exercises near to those borders, naval exercises on the Baltic and Black Sea. Russia has such exercises only on their own territory,

      Our politicians and the press keep us in constant fear, so they can wage unnecessary wars, spend huge amounts on unnecessary weapons. We have no enemy who could attack us now or in the near future. Russia will not do it, they have a history of being attacked by the present NATO lands, like Germany, England, France, Turkey, the good old USA and our ally Japan!

      This is not to support Russia in any way, but to be fair. Not the Russians, but we, the NATO countries, who are the ones of creating international stress and financing and aiding wars in previous soviet territories, like Georgia, Ukraina, etc.
      Just like Hitler said on Sept. 1, 1939: "now we shoot back on the polish border", after the german army already invaded that country!

  • Trump and Clinton campaigns both send message that Muslim loyalty to US hinges on condemning terrorism
    • So Trump was inforned of state secrets, so now we just have to wait until he tell the whole world what he has learned! He will never withstand the opportunity to do it.

  • Hundreds of Jews march for 'Black Lives Matter' in New York
    • Jews of color, what is that? Is this a new brainless designation for certain persons?

      I remember we called certain peoples negroes, then we called them colored people, black people, african-americans, people of color, etc., did I miss a few?
      The name changes, but the treatment of those people does not, and there is where we need a change. Negro means black in latein and those people are to a certain degree all black, so I personally think it is a fairer name for them than all this fancy new designations.
      Europeans are called white, yet not a single one of us is really white, but many different shades of pink, brown and red. Do we also qualify as people of color?

  • Trump's vomit is media gold
    • jd65

      Since a century in the USA we did not have a single president who would qualify for being a peaceful person. Even Wilson was pusuaded to join the bash of WWI in Europe, after he tried not to get involved.
      In case of the present candidates: in my opinion Hillary already proved how bloodthirsty she can be, "We saw, we came, he died, said with a hamish joy", so if she becomes the president we can bet on another rounds of "fighting terrorism" someplace in the world.
      Trump is a proven idiot, but an unwritten page. He may just do what he says, withdraw our troops from far away lands, be friendly with Russia, instead of a constant twist, do not get involved in civil wars of other nations and finally spend the money not for war, but for rebuilding this crumbling land. In that case he may just qualify for being a peaceful president, if his advisers do not stir him in the wrong direction.
      I personally do not trust either of them for different reasons.

    • silamcuz

      You mean no responsibility, no ethic and no class is needed, the only interest is to make a profit? No wonder the world says: in the USA you can do anything as long as you make a buck, and this is not ment to be a compliment!

  • Five US citizens detained, interrogated, denied entry to Israel
    • When you have an israeli zionist as a friend, you don´t need any enemies!
      This land of beacon of democracy and freedom is a captive slave of international zionism and now we may learn how did the negroes feel when we treated them as second rate humans.
      Friends, it will not get better, but worse, when Hillary moves into the WH.
      Trump may not be such a dependent on zionist money, however who wants him in the WH? He is destroying his chances every single day, and it is good so!

  • Sanders delegates recount 'Orwellian' message control by Clinton supporters during DNC
    • My sentiment!
      Obwohl I cannot stop shaking my head watching the stupid things Trump says, word are always less dangerous than violent acts. Hillary is bought and fully paid by the NWO and I can bet my Bill Clinton $3 bill, (yes, there is such thing, although not official), that with her we will have another war or even wars.
      What we need is that someone puts a 3" tape over the mouth of that loudmouthed billionaire.

    • Page: 10
  • Using Rep. Johnson's innocent comment to stain his reputation was the real crime
    • From the very first days, even before the 1947 NAKBA, the zionist never wanted a two state solution! All one has to do is to read the letters of Ben Gurion and other zionist leaders, they always wanted to have a jewish state all over Palestina and to drive the palestinians out.
      A visit to the Haganah museum in Jerusalem can be very enlightening, they had orders to clear certain areas, outside the planned jewish state, of all arabs.

  • Clintonites on message: Vote for Trump, and you get Putin
    • It is well known that politics are nothing but lie and cheating, however what is happening this year in the USA is more than embarassing!
      Trump is a clown and we should be saved from he ever becoming our president.
      Hillary is not a bit better, her lies are several miles long, besides the Clintons have criminal records going back 30 years. She was sentenced to return nearly a million illegal donations, the White Water affair in Arkansas, etc., etc. Only big money and the connections of the Clintons saved them from going to jail several times.
      Do either of them look to be the right person as the leader of the western world? Is this what the USA can come up with?

  • With no evidence except ethnicity, media declared Nice attack terrorism
    • To put an end to any question if this terrible deed was an islamic terrorist act or not, the french police cought five associates of that killer who spilled the beans; they were planning this attack since months!!!!!
      What can the french accept from the future, when they have 3 or 4 million such persons in the country, many of them with no future or job. How much does it take to turn them into terrorists?

    • Our politicians misuse the word terror to create angst in the population.
      We have a war against terror, it has the same meaning as war against bad weather or the good old war on drugs.
      You cannot wage a war on an idea or acts by a person or persons, we must alleviate the reason people commit those acts. Give them peace, freedom, jobs, education, not tanks and mashineguns.

    • When ein idiot, regardless of his religion or national origin, takes a huge truck, drives it into a promenade that is closed for cars and purposfully kills 84 humans and injures over 100, what other name should be applied beside a terrorist? A traffic accident? Or perhaps he mistakenly took the wrong turn?
      His purpose was to kill and terrorise the unbelievers, including several small children. By calling him a mass murderer we do not do justice to his deed, he wanted to leave a mark after his death, punishing the local population for wrongs done against him, real or not.
      The real terrorists were Bush and his crowd who destroyed the middle east countries, killed hundreds of thousands and destroyed towns and cities. That is the source of the IS and other terrorist organisations, we opened Pandoras box and let them out. You can ask most any iraqi, libyan or syrian, they wish the old dictators back. The life was under them nicht perfect, however if you kept your mouth shut you had a decent life and your house was not bombed.
      What is the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter?
      The terrorist kills and bombs our allies, the freedom fighter does the same to our adverseries!
      This is just the beginning, it will get worse before it ends. In Europe, aspecially in France, there are millions of moslems living in ghettos, with no job and no future. Those terror attacks were not done by ISIS, but local citizens, who are revolting. Perhaps the US should take a good look, we have here also about 6 million moslems and they are verbally attacked on every single day. Trump is a good example, if he becomes the President what will be his policy towards these people?

  • The iron law of institutions versus Bernie Sanders
    • After facing the SU 30 years long right here near the once communist borders and watching the developments since the fall of that empire, I can say that I am a specialist on east european affairs, and that makes me rather very worried about the NATO expention into countries very near to the russian border. We should never have done this stupid move.

      There was a tacit agreement between the west and the russians that the NATO will never enter the once Warsaw Pact countries, however within a very few short years we had our military all over the east, incorporating them into the NATO.
      Today we have military parades in Lithauen only a few miles from the russian border, more and more NATO soldiers are stationed near Russia, our navy have exercises on the Black Sea, near Sevastopol, the main russian navy port and US planes fly over the East Sea, just outside the russian borders. One little incident, an idiot pushing the wrong bottom, and we have a major war on our hands. We should ask our politicians, what would we do if the russian set up shop in Cuba and other islands in the Caribic, would we risk a world war, like in 1961? We may tease the russian, but they cannot come near our shores?

      I am also very worried, because it seems certain groups in the USA want a war with the russians, without realising that the russian bear has huge claws. In that case american cities would go up in smoke with millions dead. Is that what we want?

      What are we trying to prove? Russia is not the SU, they may not have the same clout , however with about 15,000 nuclear warheads, the best fighterplane in the world and other sophisticated weapons, they are not a pushover. One should ask Napoleon, the Kaiser and Hitler about their experiences fighting the russians. Our great supply of modern weapons did not help us in Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq, we lost those wars against bare footed soldiers, because airpower does not guarantee a victory when the enemy fights a non-conventional war.

  • 'Palestinians ought to be free' -- Cornel West's historic moment

    • How did this comment end up here, it was written in the article about the new rabbi of the IDF!!!

    • The appointment of this rabbi to the post is in line with past experiences.
      Begin and Shamir were both bloody terrorists wanted by the british authorities before both becoming prime ministers of Israel, and the son of the worst bomber of arab buses and cafes during the invasion of Palestine is the mayer of Chicago, after his family immigrated to the USA and he becoming the chief of staff in the WH.
      It seems terrorists are welcome in this country, as long as they are jewish.

  • Modern-day lynchings: an international view
    • Great, keep on agreeing that a lot of problems we have originated in Israel and we may just be on the road for a better understanding the situation we are in.

      My solution would be; send all israeli citizens back home, remove all double citizens from government and other sensetive post, stop providing Israel with weapons, finances and political support and stop waging wars to support the hegemony of the zionists in the Middleeast.
      In addition, any US citizen, who joins that most democratic army, the IDF, should be charged with treason to their land.
      Not to forget, any politician or government employee, who gets orders from zionist sources and works against the interests of their own country, should be investigated and fired from their position, in case of proven treason should be jailed for life!
      Drastic? Sure it is, however in case of a breast cancer you either cut out the poisoned parts or you just die. The same can happen to a country, we are on the way to a dictatorial system with fascistic features.

  • Clintonites oppose 'occupation' mention in platform-- as Cornel West says party is 'beholden to AIPAC'
    • Since my youth I preferred the Democratic Party, during 1958-1959 I even worked for the candidacy of John Kennedy in Boston. He wanted to improve the country and not the power of zionists.
      However, since Johnson the influance of the zionists was year after year greater, or why did he ignore the israeli attack on our ship SS Liberty, where US 74 sailors were killed and well over 150 injured. Not even a protest against this hideous crime.
      The Clintons turned the party into a stooge of zionism and big Finance/big Business, not much left of the old socialist thinking, today one cannot see much difference between the GOP and the Democrats, they all are in the service of the top 10% of the country. The Clintons already collected well over 100 millions through their trust, great part of that money came from foreign sources, illegal under US laws. Why does nobody ever mention this fact?

      Example: a few years ago a german colonel requested an airstrike from us on gasoline trucks in Afghanistan, our planes flew over and reported many civilians and children in the area. Colonel Schmidt demanded an airstrike regardless, that eventually killed more than 70 people, mostly civilians and children.
      Instead of courtmarshalling him, he was ordered back to Germany and promoted to a Brigadare General. It is the same dirt all over the world.

    • Politics and politicians are like prostitutes, they go to bed with anyone as long as it is profitable. Without the SU the west had absolutely no chance against the might german military with their super weapons, we needed the huge masses of the soviets to destroy the nazi army. WWII was won by us, and lost by the germans, at Stalingrad, where they lost a whole army, the best they had at that time. Only after that slaughter were we willing to land in Africa and eventually in Italy and France. Did the germans won the battle at Stalingrad, then our landings would have been much bloodier, therefore Uncle Joe to the bloodiest dictator Europe ever had.

    • What do you expect after 50 years of brain washing and constant zionist propaganda by the MSM, Hollywood, TV, our political parties and politicians, who receive huge amounts of money from jewish donors. If we did the same to communism, the american public would consider Stalin the greatest hero of all times.
      Europeans say, americans don´t grow up, they just grow old. Watching the discussions of top political figures, like Trump, one can understand this critic. It seems there is nothing outside the US borders, american laws and customs apply all over the world, and the US has a God given mandat to spread democracy all over this globe, even if it takes to bomb countries back to the middle ages, overthrow duly elected governments and ruin countries by imposed sanctions.
      After WWII we had great sympathy, we were loved all over the world, and even our previous enemies respected us. We blew all that, our friends today are mostly bloody dictators or countries where the politicians receive every year a few hundred millions to call their own. Following I hear more often; is the US a superpower that lasted less than a century? If stupid people run a business, or a country, they can ruin it very fast.

  • Tidbits from Reader Survey: Please Add Your Ideas To The Mix
    • Hallo Annie

      If you look up the Encyclopedia Judaica, you will find that there non-jews, like you and I, are called goyim. I do not speak hebräish, so I cannot judge if that is derogatory, or simply an old name for not jews. I personally do not find insulting being called by that name, (by the way, I did not know that you are not jewish, as all others at MW seem to be just that). To make it very clear, to me it doesn´t make any difference if one is jewish, christian, moslem, or one who believes in any other fairy tales. What you are is important, not where were you born, who was your mother and father, etc.

      Perhaps I did not make it clear what did I mean with my comment. Since 10 years all articles in MW are about Israel and the palestinian occupation, even if the author is not jewish or even an arab. Meanwhile all around that country there are upheavals, wars and similar events, that effects the lives of all occupants of Palestian, however you stick to your old scheme. That is like being a surgeon, who operates only on the left leg, for the right one you must go to someone else.
      The events in the ME, and Israel/Palestina is located just there, concerns us all, because their future could be decided, or effected, by one of those wars, therefore perhaps we should keep an eye on them. The situation there is very similar to 1914, when it ended in WWI.

    • I know Mondoweiss is a jewish blog, however if you would include a few goyim, you may be surprised that there are a few who are most intelligent and politically match the line most of your readers are interested in. Presently you print mostly jewish interests and views of the palestinian cause, a very limited selection, and after years it gets a bit boring.
      The ME is changing rapidly and what happens in Syria or Lebanon, among other states in the region, will effect the interests and history of Israel. Would it not be a good idea to raise your horizon a bit and look what is happening over the israeli border?

  • Obama's November surprise
    • "Removal (demolition) of settlements buildings".

      That would be the biggest blunder of the retreating zionists, they owe the palestinians billions of dollars, not to forget the destroyed real estates, stolen water, etc.
      Those buildings should stay where they are, the they are needed to house the refugees coming home and are just a small return for the destruction of the homes of the palestinians.

      I had a good laugh reading the comments regarding the word goy or goyim. It depends how do you look at it, a french man in love calls his lady "ma petite cochon", my little pig, that would be insulting to most of us, however she just loves it!

  • Sanders's leftwing base made him take on Netanyahu
    • Yes, and I welcome the day when the US government, politicians and press threat Israel as it really is, the last bloody colonist on this Earth, that with wars, killing of innocent civilians and immens amount of financial and political support of the USA is able to get away with methods contrary to international laws and ethic. Great percentage of the present and past israeli leaders and IDF senior officers should end up in front of the ICC as war criminals.

  • Sanders slams Clinton for ignoring Palestinian needs and thinking Netanyahu is 'right all the time'

      It is a pity that we must chose the best of the bad and not the best of the best!

    • I live just too far from the USA to be able to watch the daily events concerning our gladiators fighting for that prize, the keys to the WH, however I have the feeling that we expect just a bit too much from good old Bernie.
      He is an old zionist, lived in Israel, and he may changed his attitude toward the aims of zionism, however he just cannot bring himself to really face up to them. His criticism always will be half hearted, careful not to go too far, keeping the chance to go back to the tribe if he fails to get the prize.
      The idea of having Hillary as the POTUS is bad enough to keep you awake all night, however is Bernie the optimal solution? He will be 75 by the inauguration, not an age when a human being can take on the stress of what is needed to govern this huge country and all parts of the empire we built for us over the years.
      My feeling is that we just don´t have candidates in either party, where I could feel safe to go to bed in the evening, and not be wake up to the news that we have another major war. With Hillary we can bet on it, so good luck to all of us, because we are unable to produce a statesman to run the country, we have a bunch of opportunistic politicians who cannot be trusted.

  • Trump supporters in New York take on ISIS
    • " I would bomb the whole place", said Ms. Ammar.

      Now that is a real caveman reaction to the issue, the same action we are doing since about 70 years, we bomb the hell out of them, killing women, children and the old! And these people call themselves "christians", go to church every sunday and pray for blessing from above.
      How uneducated and stupid are our average citizens, kill a few million humans and the job is done. The problem is, that those arabs are today much better educated, have plenty of money and connections, and they are already in Europe to thank those peoples for the subjugation and bombing their countries.
      What would Ms. Ammar say when one day a bomb blow up her house, the school where her grandchildren learn, the hospital where she may be convalecing, or the movie where she may see her very last show! We are doing such things since decades and it is time we get off the high horse and get the hell out of their countries. Otherwise they will come to us and don´t let the FBI or HS fool you, they will come. You cannot stop a person who is ready to blow himself up just to kill a few of his enemies at the same time. London, Madrid, Paris and Brussels should teach us a lesson.

      We need millions marching on the streets of the country before our politicians notice what is wrong with their solidarity, however the USA is not known to have huge demonstrations that last until the demands are met. A good example is the OWS movement, that lasted a few days and achieved a big nothing.

    • Anyone interested in the wrong doings of the Clintons should go to YouTube and type in Hillary Clinton lies. You have a great selection of crimes commited by them, legal actions against them, fines they had to pay, friends and associates charged, jailed and even killed.

    • "Even if the ME is less important to us, our trading partners depend on that source of energy".

      Im my opinion it is time the USA stops being Uncle Sam to the whole world and let our "cousins" dig the chesnuts out the fire themselves! The NATO could do this job without the participation of us, those countries grew fat during the past 50 years, meanwhile we sink more and more into deep indeptedness. Tamara Wittes must be jewish and what she really mean is that we must stay in the ME to ensure Israel´s security againsts great odds. Israelis have less children than the arabs and what this means could be illustrated with the history of several countries in Europe, and probably on other continents, too.

      I second Obama´s decision to pull back from the ME, during the past 70 years it costed us billions of dollars and thousands of dead americans, let other nations have the fun in case they need the energy from there. On the other hand one can just buy their oil, without invading their country, bombing their towns back to the middle ages and killing millions of their citizens.

  • Trump 'has no business being president' because he would be 'neutral' to Israel -- Clinton tells AIPAC

      This is going on since Johnson, and I must wonder, how long will it take before the american people wake up to the sad facts, that they really have nothing to say about the policy of their elected goverments?

      Sorry that you do not qualify!

    • How low did our country sank during the past 50 years!
      During the first nearly 200 years a roman catholic had absolutly no chance to become the president due to the fear of the Vatican having an undue influence on him. John Kennedy had to convince our people that he being a catholic will not influence any way his decisions and the way he governs the country. He was our very last president not in servitude to Israel.
      Today one has to pledge an allegiance to Israel, a foreign country, even to be considered as a candidate for a higher public office, must visit Tel Aviv before elections to get final instructions, and assure them their undying servitude to be elected, as most of our congressmen do.
      Clinton, Cruz and all those traitors should be arrested and jailed for the good of this nation and anyone voting for them should also be classified as a traitor. You are selling your country as Quisling did during WWII. He was hanged for his deeds, should our politicians be treated the same way?

  • El Al captain indoctrinates the passengers, but only in Hebrew
    • "in Germany after murdering 6 million jews!.

      The question is, how many palestinians did those passengers on the plane murder over the years? Why do they fly to Berlin, the capitol of those murdering nazis? Why do 10,000 young israelis live in Berlin, opening up businesses like cafes, restaurants, bars, etc.? Is there something more interesting than in Israel? I make a bet with you Steve, if the arabs ever get a leader who will unite them, a great number of israelis, who today curse the germans, will head toward that country.
      Besides, the 6 million jews murdered is just a zionist number, because nobody knows the exact figure of those victims. That 6 million number was already circulating before WWII.

  • What brought you to be critical of Israel?
    • Yes, General Jackson was a passionate hunter, he liked to hunt indians in Georgia and Florida. It would be great to know how many of them did he kill personally. Later he became our president.

  • It will take more than a political revolution for Bernie Sanders to 'level the playing field' in Israel/Palestine
    • Who is "us"?

      Us are all the american citizens and taypayers who pay all those billions of dollars Israel costs us every single year!! Last time I checked "the ruling political and economic elites" paid very little, far below their fair share of taxes. As a thank you the israeli government and great part of the citizens spit on our values and political system. Netanyahoo said in Canada: "We can take care of the americans, we already control Manhattan, (I presume he ment Wall Street), and bought Poland and Hungary." You can find his speech on YouTube.

    • Israel may be a strategic asset, as suggested by the writer, to any Israel-firster politician or zionist jew, however that land costs us a lot of money, political efforts and millions of enemies.
      The US military thinks that with a friend like Israel you do not need any enemies, they simply cannot be trusted.

    • Bernie Sanders went through the same jewish indocrination as every jewish child does, therefore he has a problem speaking clearly about the palestinian occupation. He would like to help the palestinians without doing any damage to the State of Israel.
      As we all know you cannot make an omelette without breaking a few eggs and the election promises of the candidates have an expiring date right after the elections on Nov. 8th, therefore we cannot depend on anything what is promised to us. Will Bernie have the guts to "break a few eggs" and lean hard on Israel if he is elected, we don´t know, and to be honest, I just cannot believe it at this point.
      He could convince me by going to the AIPAC meeting and read the Leviten to all those traitors of this nation.

  • Austrian Parliament cancels International Women's Day event following attacks on Hedy Epstein
    • In those camps there were jewish capos who did not threat their fellow captives much better than the german or other guards. I have read a report on this decades ago, (please do not ask for source), stating that some of this overseers and accomplices later claimed to be just another captive jews and became the worst zionist leaders.
      Elie Wiesel könnte nicht Elie Wiesel sein, he could have stolen the identity of an unfortunate person who did not survive the Holocaust. Many capos did just that!

      Above it is mentioned several times that Hedy Epstein is a "survivor" of the Holocaust!
      You can be a survivor only if you were right in the middle of it, however she was far away and not in danger at all. On the same bases we can say that every person in Europe, USA, Canada, etc., who lived during that time, are "survivors" of the WWII, even if they were not even near to the war zone.
      She is a lovely old lady and I have the feeling that she is being used by others.

    • WWII ended just about 71 years ago and the Holocaust Industry, (Finkelstein), is still churning out stories both positiv and negative to the zionist cause. There are many ways to skin a sheep and there is always money in it.

      Jews finally must come to the conclusion that there were many others who were threated just as bad as they were, for every jew 10 non-jews were killed in that war, and if we keep scratching the old wounds, they will never heel.
      The guilty ones are already dead or sitting in wheelchairs, so in my opinion it is time we bury this whole affaire in our deepest memory and start fresh again. For every action comes a reaction and it can go on forever.

      Millions were desplaced during that war, and if Hedy Epstein was evacuated with a child transport, then she should consider herself to be lucky. Many non-jews did not have this option, millions of german, austrian, polish, russian, french, british, etc. children starved or died through the bombing attacks of the war parties. One was not better than the other.

  • Palestinian citizens of Israel respond to poll showing Jewish support for expelling Arabs from country
    • "...because jews are full citizens of the US with equal rights...."

      One should speak to those japanes full US citizens, who were locked up during WWII. Or the german ones.
      Nothing is guaranteed in this world, american jews should disassociate themselves from the zionists, both in Israel and in this country.

  • A totalitarian democracy
  • Speak softly and act like a big dick
    • Trump is a laudmouthed, vulgare idiot, however I just love what he is doing!
      He is destroying that crusted Republican party, the establishment is running scared, Israel-first billionairs are moving over to the Democrats. The leaders of the party are sending all their storm troops to destroy the integrity of their own leading candidate, first time in history.

      Now we need all the dirt the investigators can dig up on Hillary to make my day perfect. Perhaps we can start to reform those parties to serve only american interests.

  • Romney echoes neocons: Trump will lead U.S. 'into the abyss'
    • In politics sometimes we must take what we get. If you want what you wrote above, then Trump is the only candidate that will come near to your wishes. Maybe! There is a german proverb that says: "one will not eat as hot as man cooks." Once and if Trump get to the WH, I am sure he will change his tune, gets more statesman like.

    • What we need in the USA is a strong third party to stop this the winner takes all system. Should a party do not receive a bit over 50% of the votes, then it must look for a partner to form a government, as one can see any given time in Europe. This may not make governing easier, but it will stop parties usurping the full power.

      As in any business, a third party must start small in local politics to establish a reputation and political basis, corner positions like a mayer of a city, congressman, governor, etc. It takes years to have a strong base and finances for a presidential campagne.
      According to my estimate, all american third parties, including the present Green Party, fail, because they go for the top position without having a real political support in the nation. Dr. Steiner is a nice person, however who knows her? She should run for local positions, like a mayer of Watertown, city councellor, etc. to collect valuable experience in this dirty world of politics.

  • Why I support a one state solution and still consider myself a Zionist
    • There is a proverb "You cannot serve TWO masters at the same time", or "You cannot dance on two weddings simultaneously", they are centuries old and I think both express my feelings about dual citizenship!
      I made my home in Germany over 40 years ago, however I will always keep my US citizenship, and only that one, because it is not like an underwear that you can change if needed.

      Becca says: "I am an american. I am an israeli", meaning she is serving the interests of two nations simultaneously! Since american interests are not the same as the israelis, how can she do this spagat? If she decided to be an israeli citizen, then she should surrender her US passport and forfeit on US citizenship.
      She, a born american, served not in the US armed forces, but of a foreign country, and as we follow the deeds of the IDF since many years, she must have commited crimes against humanity, as they do it every single day. Did she shoot an unarmed palestinian child or woman? Or a few old men? We will never know, however being a member of a criminal organisation is already a crime, according to US laws!

      Thousands of europeans served with the ISIS in Syria and Iraq, and as they return to their home countries, they are charged with crimes and jailed. We should do the same with all american jews, who will not serve in their own armed forces, but go to Israel to join the IDF. We should have laws that forbids serving the interests of a foreign nation, in the military or any other way. Most countries have such laws.

      Our government, think tanks, CIA, NSA, HSD, Pentagon, etc. are full of double citizen Israel firsters, how can we run a country and feel safe when foreign agents sit at all important points? How could our country sink that far?

    • " I am a zionist, however I support a one state solution".

      Great, and naturally that state is called Israel, or Eretz Israel, where all will have the same rights, as long as they are jews! Is this a joke?

      We could continue with this farce, "I am a nazi, but love the jews", or "I am a communist, however believe in a capitalistic system"! Or "I am the pope, therefore I never beat my wife".

      Dear Ms. Strober, there is no such thing as a jewish nation, as there is no catholic nation, moslem nation, hindu nation, etc., all those are religions and states are political entities.
      Jews are made up from 100 different nationalities, (I did not count them), who sometime converted to judaism, the real hebrews are so rare, that together they would not make up a decent city, never mind a nation.
      You had the privilage to be born an american, however you decided to become a colonist subjugating ethnic majorities with modern weapons, (IDF). What you now do is, after beating up a person, you give him a bandaid. How kind of you, I wish we had laws to take away your american citizenship and declare you persona non grata in the country.

  • As Trump takes on the neocons, Kristol likens him to Hitler
    • With Jill Stein you will waste your vote, the USA is just not ready for a third political party.

    • The problem is that Bernie is a very bad salesman.
      If he wants people to listen to his program, he must create the need for the products he sells. He must ask the colored and other working classes if they like to earn minimum wages, visit schools where their children will not learn anything, wait for hours in emergency hospitals, etc? He must plant the seeds of a need and discontent, open their eyes, and then tell them what he will do for them. He also must make it very clear that Hillary is a politician bought by big finance and industry and she will never do what she promises.

    • Hillary´s days also may be coming to end.
      There are three different investigations on her, the e-mails, the Haiti affair and her assistant, who collected FOUR paychecks from the government and private parties, all for working in the interests of the Clintons. Do I smell rotting corruption?

      "Trump ist his own man, what America did not have in the WH since Bush. Sr."

      You went back in history a bit too short. The last independent president we had was John Kennedy, Johnson was already bought by the NWO. Do you remember the israeli attack on our SS. Liberty and how Johnson stopped any intervention by our air force? The planes were already in the air and were ordered back by Washington, leaving our sailors open to additional attacks.

      Trump is an agent provocateur, he really mixes up our stinking political establishment. Do we want him to be our next president, I am not so sure. On the other hand the congress can act as a controlling device if he goes berserk.

    • Amen, brother, you hit the nail on the head. One must wonder, how could they fool so many so long!

    • Yes, I am also wondering about Bernie, does he want to win, or is this only a prearranged piece of theater? After the results of yesterday he either puts his candidacy into the second gear, or he will finish far behind as a second.
      He is fighting great odds. Hillary is a well known political figure since 30 years, and to be honest, I have never heard of Sanders until last year or so. He is a political unknown. In addition Hillary has the support of money magnates with billions to spend, Bernie cannot match that, and always money decides who will win. He must imitate Trump, tell the voters what Hillary did during the past decades and warn them what can we expect from her. In other words, no more gentleman and satin gloves.

      I remember what the democratic party was 60 years ago, when John Kennedy was getting ready for the presidency, and what it is today. According to Jill Steiner it became the property of big finance and war manufacturers, forgetting why it was grounded, to represent the working class, not the billionairs.
      Hillary is a bought and paid for zionist property of big business, and should she reach the WH, we can be sure to have another war against "terror", because it is a great business for the banks and weapons manufacturers.

  • Trump's refusal to name a 'good guy and a bad guy' in conflict is 'anti-Israel,' says Rubio
    • I commented on the status of events in the ME, that includes not only Syria, but a few other countries, and the couch-potatoes called me naive! If you would look back on my comments 4 years ago, I informed already then the MW crowd where the first 1,200 "freedom fighters" were trained, supplied with money and weapons, and spirited through Turkey into Syria. I am sure neither of you had the faintest idea how this bloody war started! I had insider information what you do not have and I make comments only when I know what I am talking about, contrary to a few other persons here.

      Analysing a situation does not mean that I approve it! As far as weapons go, you both are very naive, if we don´t supply them, then the germans, the brits, the french, the russians, the israelis or the chinese will do it, and there are a few others who are ready to sell them!! Yes, it is a louzy world, but you cannot change it by sitting and wishing for a better system. Put the blame on our president and congress, see how far you get.

      Contrary to your opinion, we do not control everything in that situation and keep loosing influence every day, and both the USA and Russia are in agreement that just too many players make this situation uncontrolable! The Saudis and Erdogan are playing their own little game. The turks are bombing our allies, the kurds, trained and armed by Germany and the USA, and playing chicken with the russians. In your opinion all this planned in Washington? Do we want a WWIII?

    • echi

      You misunderstood my comment!! I ment physical involvement by sending troops and waging an air war against cities, like we did in Iraq and in a few other countries, as demanded by McCaine and a few other crazy politicians. If you read my comment carefully, then you could conclude of what I tried to say, our soldiers do not get killed if we supply money and weapons to others!!!
      It is you who needs to fresh up on your information, there are a few other interested parties in this fight, such as the very aggressive Saudis, and they certainly cause a lot of headach for us. Not to forget Erdogan, who wants to reannect the old osman empire and ignores all US warnings. He may just get us into a war with Russia, at least he is doing his best to achieve a NATO case, when we all must come to his aid. He was already warned by Brussels that he will have to fight it alone, however do you believe what politicians say?

      If you are talking about underground involvement, then we have our noses in almost every country, including our closest allies. We are called the greatest terrorists in the world.
      I agree with Sanders, it is not our fight and should keep us out. It is a Saudi, Israel and Oman problem, they started it, financed it, (at least mostly), so let them do the fighting and dying.

    • One should judge a person not on what he says, but what he does, because words are easy to utter, but deeds take a much longer time and leave lasting results.

      I underwrite 100% what Gabbard says, we constantly put our noses into the business of others, and usually end up with a bloody nose.
      I also applaud Obama for resisting the pressure to get us involved in Syria, an escapade that would have ended up like Iraq, with thousands of dead GIs and millions of new enemies for us. He will not end up as a great president, as we so hoped nearly 10 years ago, but at least he kept us out any new war or wars.
      There are no truly honest politicians anyplace, so let´s welcome Gabbard in our ranks, we are fighting huge odds and need all the help we can get.

      As far as Bernie goes, we will see tomorrow if he has a chance or not. Should he get creamed like in SC, then his chances are minimal, Hillary has all the 350 super votes from the bigshots of her party. During the coverage by CNN, a commentator said that "why doesn´t Bernie attack the issue of her speeches on Wall Street and the e-mails, does he want to win?" He should remember, being seconds in this game is not rewarded.

  • And the winner of the Sheldon Adelson primary is... Hillary Clinton
    • In other words Bernie wants just about everything, the whole cake, in your opinion.
      It is a great dream, however it stays just that, a dream. Even Obama, who was financed by Wall Street and other money centers, therefore acceptable for the upper classes, could not get his own party to support his plans. What chances do you give to Bernie, who is an outsider, to have full support of the congress, when he plans to do things that never ever was done in the USA, political decisions with a social face?
      We are heading toward a political disaster, regardless who will win. Should Hillary get the nomination, it is imperative to vote for Trump, whom I consider to be the lesser evil, although I despise him and his constant jabbering.

    • Reading this article makes me sick, because it proves what is known to us a long time, namely in our country a few billionairs decide who will be the next senator, congressman or president. Is this what is called democracy of the people, for the people, by the people?!
      This means that all our politicians are puppets on a string and do what is required of them, not representing the interests of the country and their constituents, but the puppet masters´.
      The USA never was a real democracy, contrary to all the propaganda we hear in our lives, but even the minimum power the voters had, is being taken away from us. It really doesn´t make any difference for whom do we give our vote and who will sit in the WH, the powers behind all politicians are always the same.

  • Viral video says BDS supporters want to shoot the bible and Dannon yogurt
    • Hallo Annie

      You remind me of an incident, when people demonstrated against Obama´s medical insurance. A rather older person carried a sign, "Keep your socialist hands away from my Blue Cross"! This person did not know that that coverage of his is a government plan, and I am sure he never knew that the social security benefits basicly is also a socialist plan.
      If you discount the very small crowds around MW and similar action groups, the great majority of americans are grown up with the idea of socialism being bad for you and they do not trust the government, (sometimes I can understand them very well), therefore the word average may apply in this case. It doesn´t imply all americans. Take a trip to Texas and most other southern states, there they just might lynch you if you preach "socialism".

    • It is mind bending to experience the average american attitude toward socialism, if you want to degrade anyone, just call him a socialist! All these people collect social security benefit and Blue Cross, if they are old enough to do it, or are diligeously paying into this program to be able to benefit later, not realizing that social derives from socialism. Or the other way around. One likes to visit social gatherings, the kids should be social in their behavior, however socialism is a devil´s advocate.
      I think schools should teach the children about different political standards, so they can understand that socialism is not communism! The ruling class doesn´t want to do that, because then the working class may suddenly decide that they want their fair share of the national wealth.

      It is hard to believe, however the situation in the USA is worse than the reputation is. We have the best universities in the world, but the average high school graduate, (gymnasium), can hardly read and understand his diploma. Take a close look at Trump, product of one of the best universities, and he has a very good chance to become the president of the most powerful nation on Earth, (speaking militarily).
      Duringt the 1960s the politicians decided that everyone should have a high school diploma and lowered the standard to a level where an australian sheppard dog could pass the test with flying colours. We have presidents like George Bush and politicians with the same abilities.

      Welcome to the real world, where things are different. In the USA we have a population that is uneducated, naive and very easy to fool, they need all the help they can get from people like Kathleen or similar better educated individuals.
      In Germany I watch the Green Party and their day dreaming politicians, (I presume you belong to that line of politics), and ask again and again, "in which world do they live in".

    • As I watched Hillary´s victory celebration I decided that I like her even less than before! She is stealing all the subjects what Bernie wants to change in the USA, promises that we all know will be forgotten a day after election. Would you trust her to stop corporate buying of politicians and elections, when she is one of the biggest tool of such institutions?

      She had a full job of face lifting, although her character needs an urgent improvement. Pity a scalpel cannot do it!

  • Hey Ambassador Shapiro, we believe in the separation of church and state!

In Turkey Erdogan is working very hard to cause an incident that will pull the NATO into a war with Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and others who want a free for all.
      The wonder boy leaves the WH only in the dark, so his shadow will not scare him. He should remind Erdogan that in case Russia hits back, he is on his own, americans will not die to support his egomania.
      As you see, we have more important and dangerous situation in the ME than the P/I conflict! If and when the baloon goes up, the situation in Palestina will be our smallest problem.

    • Sending a zionist jew to Israel as the ambassador of the USA is about the same as sending a communist to the Sovietunion, both will not represent the interests of their country, but the one of their beliefs.

      Jessy is right, we have huge arms depots in Israel, anything from tanks, artillery, missiles and plenty of ammunation, to support our military in case we have another war in the area. The IDF can dip into those supplies in case they run short on killing power.

  • 'No Wars for the Billionaire Class': A look at a possible Sanders foreign policy
    • I have the feeling that most people in the west just doesn´t have the faintest idea what Crimea means to the russians and what is Ukraina to them.

      Let´s start with Ukraina. There never was a country called Ukraina, it was always a part of Russia or other powers, like Austria, Hungary, Poland or the Ottoman empire.
      The first russian county was created in Kiew during the 8th century, called Kiewruss, the word ukrajna means border or border area, the ukrainer are called little russians. Knowing this, one can judge the importance of that piece of land to the russian people and to their history.
      The Crimea has a long history of wars and occupations, scyths, mongols, tatars, bulgarians made their home there and later it belonged to the turks.
      During the 18th century Catharina the Great took it away from the turks and since 1783 Sevastopol is the main russian naval base, up to this very days, also well over two centuries. During the 1960s Hruschev, who was an ukrainer, attached the peninsula to Ukraina for administrativ purposes, without getting the approval of the upper soviet, therefore it is not a valid act, and during the 1991 split up of the Sovietunion this was not corrected. To understand the russians, what would we do if California splits from the USA, makes eyes at our greatest opponent, (I do not want to use the word enemy), and San Diego Naval Base would come under foreign control?

      Crimea is populated to 80% by russians and we can bet our last golden eagle that they will never give up the control over that most important piece of real estate!

    • As I have commented a few days ago, Bernie should not get bogged down with the question of Israel, he should give an answer that later can be interpreted several ways. We all heard politicians talk for a half hour to realize later that he or she did not say anything!
      Our country is controlled by the Military-Industrial Complex, to go against them can be very dangerous. Not only millions of well paid jobs are at risk, but the idea of the USA giving up its leading position in the world, what very few americans want. We produce weapons that never will be used, thousands of tanks, worth billions, are lined up in the desert, so they can be scraped in 10 or 15 years! In addition, those weapons must be used, so we have wars to destroy them and the Pentagon can spend a few billion dollars again! Pity, that all those expensive and fancy weapons did not stop us from losing every single war since WWII!!

      Bernie, listen to people who advise you to stay with domestic policy. Let all others talk about ruling the world, the young nowdays rather want something at home and those are your constituents.

You repeat the same sentences, like a doll that has a string to pull to make it quack, and your face doesn´t reflect any knowledge of the subject you are uttering. Gov. Christie was right, just to learn a few sentences and repeat them over and over does not qualify one for the highest office in the country. Give up, go home and make another baby, the country needs taypayer, I pity all those who want you to be our president.

      You are a zionist puppet, you visited Israel to get final instruction on how to betray your country, the USA, and you cannot be trusted.

  • 'Let the one-state era begin'-- Tom Friedman explains there will never be a Palestinian state
    • All territories of Israel are stolen and legally belong to the palestinians, GB, USA and the UN had no right to give away a land that doesn´t belong to them! In addition, international laws forbid annexation and populising a land conquered in a war.
      At partition jews made up roughly 30% of the population, but received 70% of the land, so even then it was fixed to benefit the jews. Speaking legally, the palestinians should decide how they arrange a new division, they lived there for many centuries, it is their property.

    • "Settlers can then be given the opportunity to remain in Palestine...."

      You must be joking!!! Do you really believe that any of those settlers would except a palestinian government and laws, give back the stolen lands, and give up their weapons? How could such land function, when 25% of the habitants are hardcore zionist terrorists, still living in times of 1,000 BC?
      Those settlers must leave Palestina, one way or another, and go back to the countries they came from. If your build a house on sand, it will collaps very soon.

  • Cartoon: Netanyahu plans fortress Israel to protect against 'wild beasts'
    • I am glad you do not limit your information bases on the US MSM.
      I watch daily RT, BBC, France24, CCTV, AlJazeera, CNN and a few other TV stations. They all bend the stories to please their bosses, however an analytic mind can find the truth someplace in the middle.
      Example: French TV showed a video showing how the US does pinpoint bombing, avoiding civilian casulties, not like the russians, who purposfully bomb civilians.
      RT came back, showing the same video, that was stolen from the russians and actually showing their bombing!
      In other words, western bombs are good, russian bombs are bad!

      Netanyaho wants to bring back the good old days and plans to inprison all israelies in an even better ghetto, so they can be safe from those "wild beasts" of the land they occupy. That will be the second such construction after the open air prison called Gaza, made possible by the only democratic nation in the ME!

  • Nobody cares that Bernie Sanders is Jewish
    • rugal b

      I have never met a "white" person, unless you ment those with pigment disorder, called albinos!
      The so called white people, the europeans, are blond and blue eyed in the far north, as you go toward south they will turn brown haired and eyed and in the deep south black hair and eyes and brown skins are in fashion! Which will fit your discription of "white". Far west the irish and scots are mostly red headed, not very white.

      Once all europeans came from Asia, the indo-germanen from todays India. 90% of jews in Europe and America have their ancestors in Khasaria and with other folks in the Kaukasus mountain area, known to be "white" people.

      You may call me an european or caucasian, but no way a white person, (although my hair fits that colour)!

    • Here we go again, who is jewish, who is not? Was Sammy Davis Jr. jewish, his mother was not? Can one convert be more jewish then another one? What is an american with jewish religion, an american or a jew? On the same base, is a catholic american a refugee from Rome? What are scientology followers, immigrants from outer space?

      If I like a person, I do not care what religion, nationality or colour of skin he or she has, there are good people and bad people all over the world. Jews do not do themselves a favour when they always chew on this subject, people get tired of it very fast. Bernie is not running as a jew for president, but as an american citizen, an he will be elected as such.
