  • Generational sea change within the Democratic party will also include policy towards Israel
    • According to my information in three districts Clinton/Sanders were a tie up and tossed coin decided who won. All three times Hillary was the lucky one, however it is a hell of a way to decide an election!

    • We had enough presidents who tried to change this world and cared more for foreign peoples than for his own, who elected them.
      Sanders should concentrate on domestic policies, the well being of our nation, rebuilding America to what it once was. Not with military might all over the world, but with new schools, roads, bridges and jobs at home. Bring home our troops, or at least most of them, we still have around 120,000 in Germany and military bases in 80 countries, costing billions each year. Why?
      He should stop the tax avasion of huge corporations and wealthy persons, make sure everyone pays their share, not just the employees who have no choice. Part of the country looks like the 3d world, Detroit is our Calcutta. Bernie is a liberal, he has enough to do for the next 50 years!!

    • x-pat

      You are correct, Sanders is jewish and there is no sense to get the tribe in uproar at this early stage, he may loose a lot of support from them. I would make a bet that if he would really lean on Israel before elections, even many MW readers would refuse to vote for him.
      He should avoid the issue of Israel and if directly asked, give a diplomatic answer, meaning he did not commit himself to anything. After in the WH, what in my opinion will not happen, he can deal with this issue.

    • rugal b

      Looking at that line of sorry individuals wanting to be the president, my choice also would be Bernie Sanders, obwohl I realize his chances are minimal.
      About your bet. Do you have a grand total of $10 in your savings account, to be so brave with your bet? I certainly would not risk a larger amount, you are betting against huge odds just to double your money.

      The next president of the USA will be the one who has the largest financial support. The nation will be bombarded with ads and all kinds of advertisements, and the american people, being so uneducated in politics, will elect the one whose face they see the most. It will be either Hillary or Trump, Cruz was not born in the USA and in one of this days this will come to the attention of his opponents.

  • Israeli designer eroticizes the Palestinian keffiyeh
    • You are so rrright, talknic, when I see these bonny creatures with their flappy clothings, my only thought is to give them something to eat, never mind any erotica.
      Most great designers are homosexuall, are they in the process to destroy our female sexappell by marching these living skeletts on the catwalk?

    • Hindu numbers, perser numbers, arabic numbers, what is the difference, we got them from the arabs and are lucky to have them.
      When you eat spaghetti, you think it is an italian invention, however according to legends Marco Polo brought it back from China! Would anyone of us think that spaghetti carbonara, (I just love it!), is a chinese dish?
      The old testament has the story of Abraham, Noah, etc., and we are told, or we assume, that those persons were jewish. However ton tablets were found from older civilisations, 1,000 years or older than the jewish one, where this same stories are to be found with different names. Through the milleniums we all learned from eachother, the more advanced peoples gave us their culture and inventions, or we stole it and presented it as our own, as usual even nowdays.

    • I personally see no offense by using these designs.
      Just hope that a few short sighted IDF warriors will not mistakenly shoot jewish women.

    • Jon66

      We use arabic numbers, not hindu!

  • 'We are all Jews' -- the Holocaust as imperial export
    • Not free, they get paid for it.
      The IDF has a special unit that reads blogs, watches YouTube and Wikipedia, and when there is anything that is depremental to that only democratic state in the ME, they file complaint and have information changed or removed.
      So if suddenly you do not find something in YouTube or Wikipedia changed the information, send a nice thank you letter to Tel Aviv.

    • Froggy

      Thank you for your great comment, you must have spent a lot of time for this precise information. For years I fight a loosing battle trying to let the readers know and accept, here and in other blogs, that in those concentration camps not only jews, but at least as many other people were murdered, gassed, worked and starved to death.

      In Germany every single year on Jan. 27th there is a great memorial on the liberation of Auschwitz, 100% dominated by the jewish suffering and jewish memories, jewish speakers imported from Israel or the USA. Not a word about any other victims. Gypsies were also killed in great numbers, just for being gypsies, and they try to get recoignation for years, however they do not have the backing like the Jewish World Congress, or similar zionist organisations.
      It would be great to honor ALL victims of that crazy regime, there are many from each country occupied by the german army.

    • Steve Grover

      The first victims of the nazis were not jews, but liberals, socialists, communists, catholic priests, etc., in general who were against the Hitler regime. If among them there were jews, they were not interned because of their religion, but for political reasons.
      Dachau was in business since 1933 and only five years later were jews interned for being jews.

    • Samy Davis Jr. tried to help with the numbers, however I must wonder how did he prove that he is of jewish decent.

    • jon66

      The story must be true, however your mathematic must be corrected. You say out of 1,000 men he saved the lives of "as many as 200". That would make that US military unit 20% jewish, an unbelievable ratio. I spent many years in the military and jews do not add up to even to 2%, their share in the US population, never mind 20%. Were those not 20 jews?
      This comment is not to change the spirit of the story, he was still a very brave man.

    • Noone with a right mind can deny the Holocaust, although the numbers killed vary according to different sources. Nevertheless, mass murder stays mass murder.
      What bothers me is that there were also millions not jews killed and this is never even mentioned when we talk about the german mass murder. In those concentration camps died gypsies, priests, homosexuals, communists and socialists, children and adults with menthal disability, slave workers from occupied countries, and according to records, over a million soviet POVs were starved to death. Altogether these may even surpass the number of jewish victims, so we should not forget those unfortunate persons, they were also systematically worked and starved to death or gassed outright.

  • Netanyahu responds to Ban Ki-moon's criticism of the Israeli occupation (Update)
    • Life for jews in France cannot be very bad, after all that country has the largest jewish population in Europe. They should look how their semitic brothers, the arabs, are threated and under what conditions they live.

      Talking about colonisation, the question might come up what France is doing in Mali, Ivorycoast and other former french colonies in Africa? They even got NATO and EU military help to make sure the uran from Mali keeps coming to the many nuclear plants in France.

    • I certainly hope these comments on DNA ment to be jokes!!
      Jews are not born, they are made, exactly as moslems, catholics or any other religious groups. Take a jewish child after birth away, before the rabbi goes to work on him, and give it to a catholic family, or a moslem one, and that child grows up to be a pope follower or prays facing toward Mecca.
      How many jews will never know who their real father is, the same goes for any member of the human society.

    • My impression of Ban Ki-moon up to now was of he being a puppet-on-strings, without any backbone and cojones, perhaps he will be allowed now to defende himself, if he can muster up enough courage.
      Still, we need a SG of the UN to be a person with great diplomatic background, (what Ki-moon doesn´t have), to be forceful, (Ki-moon has even less of that quality), and be independent of the USA, (in that case someone must cut the strings he is dancing on)!
      Anyone knows the right person?

  • Updated: Former French Justice Minister should face questions in NY about law barring BDS speech
    • It may not apply to above article, however madame Ministére Taubira resigned from the french government, being the only member of that hapless group who has guts and a backbone.

      Hollande and Vall want to change the french constitution to be able to take away the citizenship from sentenced terrorists, what would have far reaching consequences not only for the convict, but also to his/her family, who may be innocent, therefore it is illegal.
      Instead of being part of it, she stepped down, a quality that usually you do not find with politicians.

  • 'If we lose the West Bank, we lose everything': An evening with a liberal Israeli
    • Annie and Mooser

      Theo already did his duty to humanity!

      I am pushing 80, live in Germany well over 40 years, and my daily language is german, so I may make mistakes in the english language. This childish critic of my, and also others, choice of words may be fit for 12 years olds, but pityful with college educated persons. On the other hand I speak, read and write three languages and get by with two others, I wonder if my critics can surpass that!! Or even match it!

      I have the feeling that MW is an exercise in shadow boxing, we do things, but do not want to hurt anyone! The tribe may fight, but will not scratch out eachothers eyes, therefore it is a secret to me how do you want to free the palestinians. I am not blinded with a feeling to any group of people or religion, therefore I can see clearly the problem. Israel was founded in a bloodbath and will sink the same way, most professionals agree with this theory.

      Apropos, I did my duty to Israel. During the early 1960s we cought two female communist spies from eastern Europe, spying on our military. Usually after interrogation we turned them over to the germans, however one was jewish, so special treatment was required. She was turned over to the Mossad, was spirited out to Israel and may have ended up in the USA.
      There are people who plan and carry out successful actions, and there are ones who discuss and write about it.

    • The attack must come from where the zionists in Israel never expect it, from the USA and certain EU countries. Sweden already made the first very tiny step.

      We all know that Israel cannot survive without american and EU political, financial and military support, so we must hit where it hurt the most.
      MW could, instead of publishing all the little occurances in Israel, concentrate on our political base. Practically all politicians swear allegiance to Israel, visit that country before elections to get instructions, and pay lip service to that land all through their official time, as if not american, but israeli voters elected them.
      We should attack and ridicule our leaders, flood them with e-mails and publish all their wrong doings, (and they are many). Ask them how much did they receive to sell their country, etc., demonstrate in front of homes of congressmen and senators. I am sure MW readers could suggest many other way to harrass them.
      As I already mentioned earlier, writing blogs will never free the palestinians and the BDS is a very small, two edged sword.

  • Adelson newspaper suggests Swedish foreign minister deserves assassination for questioning Israeli policy
    • Ms. Wallström is a lonely warning voice in the great silence surroundig the atrocities of Israel, and women are always more courageous than men are. I wish we had a lot more such politicians in Europe, or in Washington.
      The zionists should not forget that count Bernadotte saved thousands of jewish lives in Budapest during WWII. It seems it is all forgotten by those, who today may still live in Israel, thanks to his courage. He lived a very dangerous life, with one foot always in a prison, as the nazis never worried about arresting or killing an undesireable diplomat.

  • As sanctions end over nuclear program, US socks Iran with new sanctions over missile testing
    • Since when does the Treasury declare sanctions on a foreign country, that should be the job of the president or the congress.
      This dishonest act shows that the world cannot trust us. Iran has a huge backlog of investments, running to several hundred billion dollars, and they could decide to do business only with european and asian firms. That would prove Washington that dishonesty can backfire.

  • Extremists vandalize Jerusalem church with Hebrew threats: 'Death to heathen Christians'
    • Those bloody idiots should remember that there are ca. 1.5 billion christians and the same number of moslems on this globe, a mouse should never tease two giant tigers. The end is a forgone conclusion.

  • ‘If it doesn’t have risk it is not worth doing’: Rachel Corrie's family remembers Alan Rickman
    • Rachel was a bright child, her speech at age 10 could bring tears to the eyes of the listeners.
      As an adult she knew that it is not enough to talk a good game, but you must act to achieve your goal and be in the first line to face the invaders and murderers.
      Her courage should be an example to all of us and chapeau off to that young lady. May she rest in peace.

  • Facebook censors cartoon critical of Israel
    • What do you expect from Facebook, it is under control and even NSA has direct line to it!

      Apropos, Annie, talking about "deleting". MW deleted my Merry Christmas wishes to all.
      I know jews do not honor that holiday, but one can celebrate it his or her own way.
      Those two sentences must have seem very derogatory to the moderator, whoever he/she may be.

  • My one word interrogation at Ben Gurion airport
    • Herchel

      "Israels´s existence is under attack 24/7 ."

      Boy, oh boy, it must be terrible to live in a constant nighmare 24/7, however let me clear up this problem for you.
      After the 1948 war, when the jews grabbed a great part of Palestina that was not given to the State of Israel, therefore being the aggressors, you never ever been under an attack of any sort. Perhaps the seagulls dropped a few unpleasant bombs on your beloved land.
      On the other hand you attacked and bombed every single arab land in your neighbourhood several times, since 1967 occupy the whole of Palestina, send killer troops as far as Dubai, Paris and Oslo, just to name a few, to kill palestinian politicians.
      So relax, noone is trying to kill you, you are the ones who do the killing and occupation. Stop doing it, abide with all the UN sanctions and voilá, you will sleep better.

    • I would like to say the following:

      1. A good political discussion needs different viewpoints, otherwise it becomes a ladies` "Kaffeeklutsch" when everyone agrees with the statements of others. Yes, you are right, ditto from me, also my opinion, etc., what is rather common at MW. Only old women do that.

      2. Not everyone in this world had the chance to attend pink fine universities like Harvard, Yale, Oxford, etc. and studied english literature, (good 80% of the US population cannot speak or write a proper english), therefore these constant attacks on the english of a commenter I find very pitiful. There are also commenters whose first language is not english, therefore all you criticisers, how many languages do you speak better than your mother tongue?
      There are educated persons who may not care what Plato said 3,000 years ago, but able to take us to the moon, design your next smartphone or make sure that you have a safe life.

    • Congratulations Adam, it seems having a jewish name and jewish face provides one with privileges at Ben Gurion airport. One of my favorit pianist was also a Horowitz, I am sure you know him, or better said, knew him.

      However, your experience does not change the facts that non-jews are treated a much different way, I wonder, could I say the same as you do? I had israeli friends, our daughters went to kindergarden and school together, and they sure had different stories to tell, and that was 30 years ago and the situation is much worse nowdays.

  • US spying on Israel reveals cynical heart of the 'special relationship'
    • DG

      "It is all about power and control":

      You are absolutly right. The USA has the power, however the israeli lobby has the full control, or do you think anyone from Congress would ever say anything negative about Israel? The controllers would make sure that he or she never will be reelected.

  • In rare move, Palestinian police kick Israeli soldiers out of West Bank town
    • Annie

      If I thought that you are just wasting my time I would not have stayed five years with MW, other blogs I drop after a short time. However, if you have a pneumonia aspirin will help a little, but you need a much better medication, and Palestina is dying.

      What surprised me is the vicious attacks of several regulars after I suggested that Palestina will never be free unless they take more dramatic steps. Believe me, many persons who are experts on such things agree with me 100%. Israel is establishing itself on palestinian land, they get full support from the US goverment and hundreds of jewish organisations, jewish billionairs spend huge amount to populate the West Bank, do you think that you can face up to that huge force with a few blogs? I have serious doubts.

      During 1958-1959 I worked in Boston for the John Kennedy candidacy, I believed in the democratic party. Today I don´t trust any of them and hope Hillary will not get elected, that would ruin our country as she is a fully bought zionist agent.
      What we need is a french type of revolution to make a lot of people a head shorter, blood is a very good cleaning agent. You people should remember, you cannot make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.

    • I want to thank you all for the nice words about me, it seems the buggle sounded an open season on Theo.
      In this blog I was already called an anti-semite, a zionist agent and whatever the couch-potatoes can think up, Mooser even offered a couple years ago to have my facial features rearranged.

      MW is about 10 years old, I am with you around 5, and what have you achieved during all that time with your blogs? Nothing, more and more palestinians get killed over the years, the israelis populate the West Bank, destroy palestinian houses and even communities. You are kidding yourself and all those who believe in you. The saying "the pen is more powerful than a sword" is coined by cowards who would never dare to stand up for their freedom and rights, they let others do it for them.
      Most of you are jews, so remember the 1944 Warsaw uprising of your people, who did wonderful things with very little. They rather died with a gun in their hands than to be butchered later. There are hundreds of other similar examples in the history of the mankind, one is the birth of this nation, where a ragged army of civilians beat the most powerful army of that time.

      Wish you all a great 2016, we see what did you achieve by the end of the year.

    • MH

      You are absolutly correct, so did americans during 1776 or so, or did they gain their freedom with writing nice letters? With the attitude of most of these commenters here we would still would be a british colony today, paying our taxes to the queen.
      The writer of this lines faced soviet tanks at age 18, people died left and right of him, later served in special units in the US army, etc.

    • amigo

      Thank you for your kind word, it seems you know a lot about the US military.

      First of all, why should I open my book of vita to the world, nobody does it at MW. Who are you, who is Mooser, (besides being the court jester), and who are others with cover names? Just for your information bartenders, waiters or batman, (you confuse the US military with the brits), do not drink coctails or play tennis with generals. You have to be someone who works in their proximity, can talk to them eye to eye, etc. All I tried to do is to say that I have knowledge of many things that happened during the past 50 years or so what practically noone has at MW, to do that one has to be near to the center of military power. I will not tell you my rank, however my designation was special agent in charge, go and chew on that!

      I made a mistake even mentioning my work, I never did it so openly before, because you not only make friends in your life time. I though we have intelligent people at MW, who are liberal and open minded, yet most of you react like mad dogs let lose. It seems you 15-20 hard line liberals, who regularly comment in this blog, think you have eaten the knowledge of how to correct the problems of this world with your breakfast cornflakes. Any other opinion will be crushed with brutal insults. Let me tell you something, you have absolutly no idea what it means to be a liberal, who respects other opinions. You can call your daddie a chappie, not me.

    • There is a mid-european proverb: "cowardly people will not have a home to call their own"!
      The palestinians behave like a bunch of sheep, 67 years of subjugation, daily insults, loss of their rights, loss and destruction of their land and home did not make them to react with a powerful "that is enough"!

      Just like a single butterfly does not make a spring, this what I call innocent show of force will not bring anything positiv to the destiny of that people. They must chase all those old men, who are their so called leaders out the PA, elect new, younger ones who have balls in their throusers and who are not bought with a few silver coins, to refer to the Bible and Judas.
      They must go to the UN, apply to all UN sections, ask for UN forces to guard the lines between Israel and the West Bank, demand the removal of all illegal settlers, file criminal charges at the ICC, in other words make so much noise that the world cannot ignore them anymore.
      Or they can throw stones, get butchered in return, let the IDF to check new weapons on them once a while and keep saying: beeeeeh.

  • Banksy's bold statement on Syrian refugees
    • Yes, Annie

      According to a recent report that I read and heard in several sources, negotiations are already so good as set up, however the representives of the so called Free Syria, (or whatever they call themselves), refused to sit down at a table with Assad.
      As long as this doesn´t change, there will be no peace in Syria, as Assad holds the power, even now.

    • The syrian emigrates refuse to negotiate with Assad, forgetting that he has the support of the alevits, christians and other minority groups, together a large percentage of the syrian population and most influencial groups.
      As long as he is not invited, there will be no peace in that country, he has powerful supporters and the war is turning to his advantage, thanks to the bombing of Russia and the NATO.

    • "Obama says Assad probably has to go"

      Wenn will we learn that we have no rights to topple the governments of other nations, only the syrians have the right to replace Assad!
      Should they decide to try and hang him, it is OK with me, he deserved it a long time ago.

  • Large majority of Palestinians in WB and Gaza think a full scale Intifada is on the horizon
    • Annie

      "israel is reinforcing nusra in syria...."

      Good luck to them! Al Nusra is an associate of Al Quida and eventually the IDF must face the weapons they gave them, as we did in Afghanistan and are doing right now in Iraq and Syria.
      We gave a lot of weapons to the Mujjahedin to fight the soviets in Afghanistan, after the withdrawal of the soviets they changed their name to Al Quida and shot us with our own weapons.
      By the way, Israel is involved in Syria since day one, they trained a lot of those "freedom fighters" and constantly meddles there. They just executed a palestinian leader in Damascus, with missiles. How did they know where that person located?

      I noticed that one serving in the Armed Forces of our country treated as a right wing monster. First of all, in today´s army less than 50% are in actual combat units, a majority is in support, and we also have there the same diverse political interests as in the population of the country. I consider myself to be a liberal, however with both eyes open to see this world exactly as it really is. With prayers and good wishes you cannot stop evil or free a nation.

      You should never blame the soldiers for going to war, because the great majority do not want to go to war where the game is to kill or be killed. Blame the president and the politicians, whom you elected, they decide on such moves. The military will be ordered by the president and they must obey such orders. Perhaps MW could serve peace better by putting pressure on those politicians who constantly want to bomb or attack someone and who underwrite Israel´s policy and finance it with our taxmoney. As long as such support will not stop, you can forget about helping the palestinians. They have no honest leaders and the world just forgot them.

    • mooser

      Every crowd has its clown, who with cheap comments tries to get the attention of the others, however intelligent people usually get tired of it very fast.
      You may think that you are funny, however I prefer Jack Benny.

      Your comments prove that most of the time you just do not know what you are talking about. Join the Boy Scouts or the street cleaners and do something positiv for a change.

    • Talknic

      You probably heard the following, "the enemy of my enemy is a friend of mein"!
      We, the USA, had over the years a few real bad partners in wars, like Stalin and the soviets during WWII. He was a bloody butcher of his own people, but had a huge military force, and WWII was won at Stalingrad, where the german army suffered a huge defeat. They never recovered from the loss of a whole army.

      I would rather line up all IS terrorist against the wall and shoot them all, however they are the only force that can stand up to Israel, so the palestinians can also say the same as we did with Stalin.
      Constitutions and laws say a lot, however they are constantly ignored, I could quote you a whole line of it in the USA.

      We have another problem in the ME, the Kurds. There are around 17 million of them and the colonial powers at the end of WWI divided them up into four different countries. Turkey has the most of them, about 30% of the land area belongs to the kurds, and our friend Erdogan is right now busy waging war, with our approval, against their own people. Tanks and artillery against cvivilians, sounds a bit like Israel.
      We can just allow all that and lose the last ounce of respect of this world, or we must stop all that bloodshedding.

    • diasp0ra

      Situations are never similar, every war is different, however even today we study military tactics used by the romans and other ancient peoples.
      You should never underestimate a person whom you do not know. To see the comments I earned, many, if not all, never served a day in a military.
      I personally make comments only when I know what I talk about.

    • xanadou

      Best weapons do not mean a thing, we had the best in Vietnam, air superiority, agent orange, napalm bombs, etc, yet we lost the war. The IDF have the best nowdays, however the men holding it or handling it are also the best? Lebanon though us otherwise, you cannot win against people who have nothing to lose and are ready to die for the cause.
      Great part of the IDF are boys and girls from the USA and Europe who want to play war and beat up defenseless palestinians, we can see it every day in the news. Will these fun seekers face up to a detemined revolt? What I do not understand, with so much weapons floating around in the ME, why do the palestinians throw stones instead of shooting with kalashnikovs?

    • Mooser

      You took a lot of time to attack me and ridicule every sentence I wrote. I make a bet that you are an armchair warrior, who never spend a day in our military, but used every excuse to get a differal, however you know just everything about warefare and how to fight a battle in closed community. You also twist the meanings of my text. I know that you are the the local Hofnarr and it is your duty to entertain the local visitors, therefore no hard feelings.

      I must admit, that during those 43 years with the US Army I did not learn anything. All those schooling and training in electronic warfare, commando tactics and partisan warware left me without any knowledge and the 40 years in the highest NATO command centers in Europe with all those generals and other high ranking officers did not improve my perception of how can an occupied nation fight for their freedom. Yes, you know everything better and Yeva should bless you for that, (oh, I know we both do not believe in that bearded superman in the cosmos, however it sound good, gel?).
      Still, I had a drink with Gen. Colin Powell and played tennis with many others, do you think is that an achiement for 40 years of duty to this country? Can you match it somehow?

    • DaBakr

      I presume you addressed me above with the @the.

      I am against attacking, invading or occupying the land of others, war doesn´t solve any problems, it just brings new ones, as we can see with Iraq, Syria, etc.
      However, I am in favour that the occupied people use ALL available means to destroy and kill those who subjugate them. No mercy until they leave the country. I am old enough to remember WWII, where the soviet, french, greek, serb and italian partisans destroyed the invading nazi hordes.

      We, the USA, are doing the wars for Israel to destroy one arab country after another, so they never can unite and be dangerous to the hegemony of the zionists. Our soldiers die for your cause, we pay the costs so you can survive. Yes, I am in favour that finally the arabs wake up and take their country back, whatever means it may take.

    • ivri

      " Intifadas, by their nature, HAPPEN, are not planned"

      How wrong you are! Let me quote you the 1956 hungarian uprising, that according to your estimate just HAPPENED.
      However, the US military and CIA worked on it good two years so it can HAPPEN.
      The same with the 1990 revolution in Romania, it also took a year of hard work to make it HAPPEN!

      The palestinians did not put up any fight up to now, they just throw stones and get shot in return. Kids do it, the adults are hiding in their houses, scared to death!!

      During October 1956 the hungarians revolted against the soviet occupation, and I was there from beginning to end! They used molotov coctails, (gasoline bombs), to burn and destroy armored vehicles, took the weapons and used them to shoot other soviet soldiers, raided police stations to get their weapons, and did so much damage, that the soviets had to pull out the troops and replace them with special forces.
      Over 100 armored vehicles were destroyed, more than 1,000 soviet soldiers killed and the hungarians lost around 5,000 persons. You may find many videos in YouTube showing you what courage means in face of superior forces.
      What did the hungarians achieve? New, moderate government, new laws allowing private enterprise and travel, etc., the country became the most liberal in east Europe.

      The palestinians should try the same, they have nothing to lose. Tanks and fighter planes are useless in a street to street fighting, the invading army is at a huge disadvantage. And they are not fighting a superpower, like the hungarians did, but an occupier in the same number without a chance of getting new fresh troops.
      As far as knowing what I preach, I spent over 40 years with our military, in uniform and in civil.

      I certainly hoped that my comment makes a few waves in the MW community, it is getting a bit complacent. If you think that you will ever force Israel to free the palestinians with a lot of comments in this blog, a BDS, or similar toothless means, then in my opinion you are wasting your time. I would be most happy if I would be proved wrong.

      Who do you think supplied the Mujjahedin, the Al Quida or the ISIS with weapons? Yes, we did it, either directly or through third parties. They are fighting with US, german, british and french weapons, some of them the best there is. The USA just invested 500 million to arm and train anti Assad troops, most of it ended in ISIS hands, we have 4 or 5 persons left!! Just look up the recent congress inquiry into this. This past spring we air dropped weapons in Syria, in areas controlled by the ISIS. A mistake?

      If one has a cancer, he may try many different cures, pills, etc., however the times will come when he either goes into surgery or he dies. We must admit that Israel never will draw back from the occupied areas and keeps subjugating the palestinians, so what is the solution? More pills or the scalpel?

    • I think it was Teddy Rooswelt who said the following: "Talk softly, but carry a big stick".
      The palestinians talked way too long very softly, their leaders took the silver pieces and stuck their heads into the sand, and they all forgot that if you want to be free you must fight for it. I cannot remember one single case where a nation got their freedom without fighting and even dying for it.
      In Palestina there is not a chance that the zionists ever relinquish their hold on power and the occupied land, therefore it is time the palestinians took it back. The timing is positiv, all around them other arab nations are in uproar and the IS could very easily supply them with weapons. With all those weapons floating around the ME, some could easily find their way to the Gaza and West Bank.
      The USA is so occupied with the other centers of violence in the ME, that Washington would probably not support Israel as it always did, and may force the zionists to make a move and free the palestinians.

  • Denouncing Iran deal, Democratic Rep. Maloney mixes up Asia and Africa
    • It is a pity, however our politicians are just a mirror reflexion of our society, poorly educated and not really caring for anything else, but themselves.
      Our dear Maloney has a lot of jewish voters in her district, so she is selling her soul and country to be elected again, not really knowing of what she is talking about. Over the years I noticed the same with many of our famous leaders, like bomb-bomb McCaine.

  • How long can Democrats denounce Trump and embrace Netanyahu?
  • Israel should give back the Golan

      You beat me to this info, as I was about to report on the story in RT. It seems the report I read last year was true, that the Assad forces had no opportunity to fire those gas canisters, therefore the rebels were the ones, as I have mentioned further above. There is another story circulating that Mossad arranged the use of poison gas to force the USA to start bombing Syria. Perhapd Obama did once the right thing, not falling for the story.
      With Erdogan and his circle of crooks we have a rotten apple in the NATO, I wonder how long will Washington and the EU cover up his aiding of IS, the buying of their oil, and other deeds against the interests of the NATO.

    • I have read reports not from western sources, where the writer very covincingly makes the statement, that not Assad troops, but the rebels used chemical warfare.
      Those containers could only be fired not further than a mile, (if I remember correctly), and at that time goverment troops were not in the area. As far as the 250,000 dead, the rebels also did their bloody job and killed at least as many as Assad troops.

  • 'Absolute scum' -- Trump's frightening speech
    • Citizen

      I know very little about Jill Stein, watched a few interviews with her and seems to be an intelligent and nice person. However, to be the president of this country you must have years of experience in politics, be a bastard when it comes to the interests of your country and people, and do not take orders from other countries, as our presidents do since a half of century.
      Dr. Stein should start in community politics, where the Greens could make a lot of positiv changes.

    • That is the problem with ALL politicians all over the world, they have no character, no backbone, they lie and cheat and do anything to get elected or to keep their seats.
      The worst street hooker is an angel compared to them.

    • Simple, she kisses zionist behinds, both at home and in Israel, therefore a perfect candidate for Yonah. Bibi loves her, too.

    • You are correct, I will not vote for either of them, however the choice will be between the pest and the cholera and in that case I would rather have Trump, regardless which illness he represents!

    • David Doppler

      Trump is an idiot and I would not depend on anything he may say or do now.
      Just recently he announced that shortly he will visit Israel, as all US candidates do to get their instructions and the blessing of the zionists. To me it sure doesn´t sound like an independent thinker.
