  • The liberal Zionist lament: Joe Klein and Jodi Rudoren try to explain away Israeli racism
    • Today's article in NYT by David Brooks shows the low the " liberal Zionist"would reach to deny the reality ,distort the contrxt,divert the issue and beat the drum of war on Iran in the process will mirror the lies,racism ,arrogance and fealty to violence demonstrated by Netanyahu.

      Brooks bemoan of racist comments from Iranian leader . But has he forgot the racist comments of Israeli past and current PM and of other who couldnt do
      or yet haven't?
      He cites violence in Europeand blames it on Muslim influx. Has he forgot the cooperative angle between French army and Zionist against Algerian freedom movement? Doesn't he know that 40 % or more of the violence have sprang from White and in the context of Gaza war?
      He cites the holocaust conference in Iran and automatically term it as Holocaust denial conference . Nothing can be farther from the truth.
      He then adds that Iranian scientist have attended . Somebody should remind him of the assassination of Iranian scientists. He rambles off to 911 but forgets to delve the Israeli footprints left on the scene. For obvious reasons he doesn't mention Iraq war. But if he wrote this in 2003. He would have
      He blames the antisemitism in ME as some kind of organic DNA based and same time abstract psychological illness of inscrutable but of fundamental nature . May be ,he should look into his own dogmatic inflexibility and flight from reason and try to connect it to the false teachings he has been forced to imbibe inculcate in others,and defend his own organically imposed loyalty .

    • "Welcome to Israel, 2015, where the prime minister warns of voting Arab hordes, -----‘Drink cyanide.'”

      Havent we been lamenting the lack of Democray in ME an the abscence of democratic thoughts amomng the muslims for years?

      David Brooks can be asked to join the league . He completely has lost it but NYT doesnt see that way and let him publish an artcile that is high on extreme emotion and low on basic informartion .Well he has information but he doesnt bother to offer similar piece of information from the other side of the camps or from the perspective of the "other"victims . Worst he casually promotes violence and ask Europeans to take the lead in carrying the violence .
      He is also known as some kind of liberal . But when Israel is concerned pre emptive violence that binds the zionist of differnet stripes together .

  • Bill Maher justifies Netanyahu's racism by saying U.S. has done much worse
    • India is inhabited by 200 million muslim and Israel is surrounded by 200 million Muslim " that was the sentence uttered by Ackerman of NY and seconded by Lantos by his further addition of racist comments to Muslim and Arabs in 2006 in US Congress .
      Racism just like violence is ingrained in the Zionist fabrics. Getting a little tolerant to LGBT or to abortion or to moral support to Charlie Hedbo is the like embroidery on the dirty linen worn by the Zionist .
      Maher and Harris have fans both domestic and international . But that's what the suckers are for . At least they have a fully clothed emperor.

  • Netanyahu and the unraveling of the British Jewish consensus
    • ""Two years ago, I publicly committed to a solution of two states for two peoples – a Palestinian state alongside a Jewish state."

      (Applause.)

      "I’m willing to make painful compromises to achieve this historic peace. As the leader of Israel, it’s my responsibility to lead my people to peace."

      (Applause.)

      "Now, this is not easy for me. It’s not easy, because I recognize that in a genuine peace, we’ll be required to give up parts of the ancestral Jewish homeland." That is American face of Bibi

      And ""I think that anyone who moves to establish a Palestinian state and evacuate territory gives territory away to radical Islamist attacks against Israel. The left has buried its head in the sand time and after time and ignores this, but we are realistic and understand.” "
      is the real Israeli face of Bibi

    • Netanyahu will never allow ,neither will Likud any Palestine State. He,Sharon,and other figures have said so in the past. This time he has said in less than 3 months repudiating his lies but confirming the aims,beliefs,and plans ( link to original.antiwar.com) . Bennett and Liberman are no different . The extreme right wing ideologies are not new. What is new is the arrogance,brazenness, and disregard of West.
      But what is galling and repugnant is the readiness with which the West accept with aplomb this lie that Isarel is committed to Oslo ,to peace,to 2 state solution. May be there is some kind of understanding between them . May be the whitewashing is what the press is looking for . May be the press is afraid . May be the press is part of the problem in emphasizing the false promises and in suppressing the reality which also happen to be the aim of the right wing Israel . Unfortunately this electoral wil proves that Israeli citizen never wanted a 2 state solution to begin with. Reality forcing them to the wall ,only has made them reveal their true intention.

  • Neocon meteor Sen. Cotton is funded by Abrams, Adelson and Kristol and loves war a little too much
    • "NYT’ reports ‘surge of hostile sentiment against Jews’ nationwide — on what basis?
      James North and Philip Weiss on March 6, 2015 "

      Now NYT doesn't have to look for the reason under the chair or the table the way Bush was looking for WMD.

    • If the laws based on commonsense were enacted and applied these guys would have been in jail .Instead they are basically chanelling same lies ,flasehood,conspiracies,and bribery to redo an Iraq on Iran . These guys like Kristol and Abrams could have been put behind bars for misuse of power,authorities,and for treaosn including the for charges of incitement to mass murders and the charges of thretaening the safety of the land .

  • Senator who spearheaded letter to Iran got $1 million from Kristol's 'Emergency C'tee for Israel'
    • Don't look at the numbers peddled superficially. How did G Bush manage to gain the Jewish vote by an increase of 100% after he had invaded the Iraq ?
      Why the antiwars Jewish citizen were not vociferously demonstrating against Iraq war they way they did against Vietnam war( while supporting for more American support for Israeli wars against Egypt under the radar) ? Those people who could have made a material difference,chose not to do. Sure it was their's prerogative. But that is known as partnership in crime.
      Majority doesn't want a war with Iran . Why not bolster that position . Why not demand that lying that results in preemptive wars,sanction blockade and unnecessary suffering should be declared a crime and should be dealt with harsh punishment?

  • Students in Brussels defeat Israeli embassy’s attempt to silence apartheid week events
    • link to ynetnews.com

      "Popular American television shows are presenting Israel in a highly critical manner, sources in Israeli Embassy in Washington say, expressing their concern that the negative characterization will badly affect the Jewish state's image among viewers.

      One of the recent episodes of HBO comedy series "Veep," starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, focused on the Middle East conflict:
      ....
      "Jewish organizations rush to accuse the candidate of being anti-Semitic, and although he repeatedly claims that he did not write the article, the president is forced to withdraw the nomination. " link to ynetnews.com

      The Zionist would like to pressurize but will not tolerate any incorporation of the theme involving the preressure tactics in any movie or sitcoms or serials.

      There are more. Robert Mally was castigated. So was Hegel for offering opinions.

  • Paris university reverses decision, allows Israeli apartheid event with Blumenthal
    • Where is the outrage that no so long ago visited entire Europe? Yes ,it is understood that no blood was shed and no one lost life. But that is not the argument . It is the aim of silencing offensive opinion ,unpopular stand,and banishing dissidence from the mental imagery ,that's what motivated the Chalie killers and the same purpose lies behind the cancellation.
      In fact one can easily point out that this event carries sovial and political significance and importance that thevcartoon never did or would .

  • 'NYT' reports 'surge of hostile sentiment against Jews' nationwide -- on what basis?
    • link to theguardian.com
      This story is getting complex . Menendez is being supported by Cruz. against Justice dept and Obama . His theory itsbeing done to retaliate.
      But NY times takes a different route. Does mention this angle though.

      But one thing we learn from the charges that Menendez exchanged favors with Dr Melgen like donation,free vacation,free flying from doctor . He returned the favor by lobbying Medicare .
      Isit something new? Hasn't he been doing same thing for Israel for years?

    • Do they? Can you give one example?
      BDS has been called Antisemitic . Denying the neocon's assertion that Iran has a nuclear program is Antisemitic. Sending aid to Gaza has been termed Antisemitic.
      . Calling neocon movement a Jewish movement has been called anti Semitic . Often the image of Neville Chamberlian and Hitler have been used instead of Antisemitic charges by Osraeli leaders and supporters to distort Syria, Iranian,or Palestinian issues .
      Government activities against Israeli espionages have been labeled as Antisemitic. Public utterances against the war on Gaza by politicians have been called Antisemitic. UN has. Been called same. Goldstein report has been called Antisemitic. Withholding financial supports to illegal settlement construction has been called Antisemitic.

      Antisemitism is a charge that is used to defame those who criticize Israeli political military, Intelligence ,,economic activities ,and coercive lobbying activities .
      How one would react if tomorrow anti war activities in college campuses are seen discussing ,sitting down,sharing,and exchanging money with say Russian or Syrian lobbies or if ever they did with Libyan or Iraqi regime's supporters?

    • Annie
      Sorry. I should have been more explicit . I made the comments only after reading the posts penned by tree on this site regarding the involvements with Jewish sorority and Hillel on one side and involvement of various outside players with Hillel

    • This fact exposes her real interest. She comes out of a different country and lodges herself with strongly pro Israeli groups who maintain strong round the year presence in the campus devoting the time and energy advocating Israel.
      Its like having a student from Ural region in 1970 who comes to US and joins socialists parties and groups or hobnobs with Troskytes orSocial Democrat and then face a situation where the student has to be included on the board that seeks to inquire freedom of expression, human right, religious sensitivities, free market economy and issues of self rule .

  • Israeli soldiers set attack dogs on teen -- 'Bite him' -- and rightwing politician cheers
    • "Yesterday I learned that my concert at The Royal Northern College of Music this coming Thursday had been cancelled due to Zionist pressure. I spoke with the RNCM's Marketing Director who told me that the concert was cancelled due to 'safety reasons.' It seems that the venue felt 'unable to guarantee my safety.' Given that I’m now a pretty big boy, this would be somewhat amusing except that the terrible implication is that Zionist’s violence has now made it to Britain. It took a few hours before I found out that it was the ultra- Zionist 'North West Friend Of Israel' that had put pressure on the music school.

      Violence or threat of violence can accomplish a lot even exactly in the same atmosphere that try to rally people against not succumbing to fear ,propaganda,or duplicity whether coming from Charlie Hedbo murderer or Iranian or from Hamas .

  • Pelosi blasts Netanyahu speech as 'insult to intelligence of U.S.', Amanpour calls it 'dark, Strangelovian'
    • I hope I am wrong but I can't but get drawn to the similarities between American current effort to balance its own interest,concerns of Arab and the Zionist demands and the identical British efforts in between two world wars . Looking back,England might have wondered how future would have been for the empire had it not got entangled with the Balfoursn obfuscation.
      Without Zionist insistence and prod dings,the WW1 wouldn't have continued and Czar would have remained and Hitler wouldn't have arisen .

    • Yes . I noticed that also. May be that's the only value left among the rest of us to revolt against Zionism . That is the ethnocentric national interest . When will Americans claim that ? When will Americans learn what differentiates them from the noxious Zionism. When will Americans start valuing their lives ,futures,and safety ? When will they address their own interests and when will they stop sacrificing the future of their sons and daughters and confront the toxic ,noxious,erosive, corrupting influence of the Zionist ? it is long overdue to correct it,take the control back, to protect the economic prospect of the coming generations . May be all we need is to admit our own interests based on nationality .

  • Journalists Goldberg and Gordon once again try to 'drag us into a war'
    • Atlantic magazine has some excellent authors and reporters . But if it really wanted to balance the presence of person like JG it should ask the IS or AlQuida to loan one . Balancing of the neocon can be attained solely by allowing the fanatics to pen equally dumb dangerous views.

    • Question should be what will force saner ( honest and just) line of thinking of these scribes? Does it has to be the threat of application of the law against incitement? Does it has to be the memory of Nuremberg?

  • What we talk about when we talk about ISIS
    • Blaming Islam is like blaming the Democracy for the intentions,plannings,and conducts and the results of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. In the "name of the democracy" Bush conducted the wars after initial reasons offered, had been exposed to be contrived .
      It was in parallel to Saddam who "in the name of Islam" tried to cement the cohesiveness ,consolidate his reign,and infuse a sense of ethno- religious patriotism after his tribal clan based domestic and Pan Arab based foreign policy had come to an abyss of black hole

  • New DC bus ad takes on the special relationship on eve of Netanyahu’s address to Congress
  • Al Jazeera publishes leaked intelligence files showing Netanyahu lied about Iranian nuclear threat
    • Egypt has its own" mushroom cloud moment in 45 minutes" . It doesn't have the power and it is not occupied by 25 neocons . If it had ,it could have launched a blitzkrieg all over the enemy map. May be Ynet should reframe it and shine the light on those morons who believe Iran is about to build a nuke and Hamas about to drown Israel in the sea.

  • Israel's new Asian allies
    • Israel still wants to blame muslim for risisng antisemitism and cries wolf over muslim immigration .it wants to perpetuate the myth of muslim violence against Jewish people. This is an interesting strategy. Why does it do this? One thing it does that it adds to islamophobia among the Jews and among gentiles in N America.

      Here is this statistics from -http://www.counterpunch.org/2015/02/23/the-fallacy-of-anti-semitism-rising/

      "whites perpetrated 44 percent of the anti-Semitic incidents in England, the lion’s share, while Arab or North African belligerence comprised a mere 10 percent. Surprisingly, South Asian offenders made up 37 percent, and only 8 percent were described as Black. According to the numbers, the “Arab-Israeli conflict,” as it metastasizes into Europe, is driven principally by whites, not by Jews or Arabs. I would argue that the same is true in the Levant"

    • Hophmi
      The reason Israel won't survive has nothing to do with the geopolitical changes in the world but has very thing to do with the intransigence of Israel against changing or adjusting to that reality.
      This is what is perceived negatively by the rest of he world. But this is not end of the story. Can Israel continue to develop without the massive dole that it receives from abroad? Can it continue to attack Gaza or maintain the blockade without nod from the west? Can it on tongue to steal gas off the coast? Can it on continue to build settlement without help of US money and political shield? Israel will not be able to absorb the changes constructively and efficiently. It will become more messianic,right wing ,religious,and prone to internal dislocation . Civil war will end.
      The counties that Israel is targeting are also the competitors in the same market.
      In 10 yrs time can Israel assume that a nuclear Syria or Iraq could be prevented without the pressure interest,and propaganda of West? Weakened and insulted America may not do much and any Israeli aggression may not go unanswered .
      So for Israel to survive,it has to maintain the chaos in ME . But to do that without US support means Israel will be in permanent chaos .israel has this plan for chaos or 30 or 40 yrs and 911 made it possible . But America is not in a position despite bravado co continue this anymore .
      BTW , ME may one day express gratitude to Israel or helping to break the artificial boundaries . IS will be gone, Al Quida will be gone but the bond that is growing again will survive and a Middle East that was envisioned in 1900 might become a reality . It will in that case follow the fragmentation,chaos,religious violences ,foreign invasions,and eventually rebuilding that China went through in last century. Israel will disappear out of internal fights the way its earlier incarnations did both in ME and in Europe.

    • As Israel grows more and more as a powerful military supplier to various nations like India or. Korea or Japan it will be forced to grow less and less disengaged from the defense and military establishments of West . Further development of Israeli military arsenals and refinement of its hardwares will be extremely jeopardized and start becoming vulnerable to this separation. West won't have any fear of telling Israel off. The current atmosphere of enmity between west and Israrl will spread to every area. Israel will not have the free ,easy access . Israel will lose this advantage that it enjoys now . Can it develop on its own? If history is a guide,then : no.
      The other possibility is that Israel continuously has to sell better products at cheaper rate to keep this " feeling" alive .
      Meanwhile India can and will face same problem but much worse that Europe is worried of- ' homegrown' terrorism - for support to Israel and support to Israeli manufactured wars . But it will be worse . Support to these homegrown terrorist will come from Pakistan,Bangladesh and even non Muslim countries . India is a country that has linguistic,tribal problems in addition to caste problems. There are enormous undercurrents of " terrorism' throughout the nation. This challenge will get magnified not lessened .
      Arms sale did not and could not support Cold War based Soviet existence . How could a " little shitty country " like Israel can survive on some bad blood based domestic and foreign tension that affect SE Asia ?
      China and India can't depend on same suppliers . It doesn't work. N Korea can grow more cozy with America if S Korea bolts the door .Pakistan and N Korea have good relation. Japan and S Korea can't see eye to eye . China and Japan have problems. Israel can't navigate this myriad complexities . Over the West ,it has by forcing other countries like German,France,Italy,and UK to forget their core interests and accept the pressures from US ( made by Israel ) . That will not work in S Asia. every move by one country will be matched by another country in opposite direction.
      Israel will not survive the disengagement from US. US unless remain only superpower can't guarantee succeess of Israel.

  • The 15 billion dollar deal that will make or break Israel's regional hegemony
    • The coup or the group of coups in Syria from 1940 s are astounding and all undertaken and underwritten by CIA against democratically elected gov.

    • This is why Israel supports Sisi and Jordanian monarch. This is why Jordan's monarch from Fiasal to days Mohammed are protected by Israel. This explains why a corrupt unelected PA is accepted by Israel and by US .

  • Netanyahu flips off Harry Truman
    • Hophmi

      5 th columnists were very active in US administration from the Wilson years. Brandeis was one who used the Supreme Court office to carry on activities banned by laws and customs . He planted Frankfurter in Harvard to accelerate that plan of action of having indoctrinated Zionist in the pivotal places of the local and the federal governments.
      May,Niles,and Lovett later in Truman and Roosevelt administration passed the details of the cabinet briefings,plans,and future course of action to the Zionist who then leaked it to the media and the donors . The 5 th columnists knew the precarious situation of the prospect for reelection of Truman . Vulnerable Truman was bribed . These 5 th columnists would pass the information even to outside foreign bodies .there was no secret that was not known to the international Zionist - thanks to the insider .
      Decades later,America would re experience the effects of these 5 th columnists on Iraq .

    • Truth of the matter is that Israel was created out of weakness of the Arab and of the war waging countries of the Europe,financial weakness of UN member states ,and vulnerabilities of UN member states to economic manipulation ,and above all the awareness of these factors to the Zionist and their determination to abuse those factors by first grasping the levers of power in the administration and the congress and the media.

      5 th columnist in Truman administration manipulated Truman by using Niles to change initial US position of not giving Negev to Israel . Weizmann would dine with Truman and persuade him to change the decision. Lovett was undermined .

      Macabre display of lobbying success was evident following Tuesday Nov 25 th vote at all three levels- Truman administration, International diplomatic pressures,and UN
      Phillipine was threatened by Supreme Court justice Frankfurter,.
      Niles pressured Liberia
      Niles got Barnard Baruch warn successfully France into voting yes
      Weizmann contacted French president
      Former Ass Sec of State Adolph Berle promised Haiti of aid and threatened of cutting off food supply - Haiti changed like France to " yes" vote.
      At UNGA Zionist were given US delegate's passes so that they could lobby the delegates on the Assembly floor.
      The successes of the pressure tactics by US and by Zionist using US have been confirmed by Dean Rusk ( head of State dept) and by Zionist and ex undersecretary Summer Welles.
      Cuba disclosed that one Latin American country had been bribed ( 75 000 dollars) to change to " yes" vote.
      Ex gov employee using old connection promised Latin American countries of pan American highway construction project if hey voted " yes" . Despite being out of office. He behaved as if he wielded authority of making promises .
      Mind coats were distributed to the wives of delegates from Latin America
      Costa Rica president received a blank check.
      There would have been no UNGA 2/3 resolution if corruption and inducements and threats were not used by US and by Zionist using US.

    • "Jewish and Dempcratic " always upholds the Jewish part and ignores or tramples the democratic part of the label. The later supports and consilodates the former. That reason explains why Israel would like to be included in the democratic list. May be ISIS would eventually learn to use,incorporate,mention,rehash,and repeat it tirelessly to be considered as a democratic body . At least like Israel it has been collaborating with west in many ways . Like Israel it's genesis or birth was made possible by the short sighted conflicting interests of the West.

      0--"This statement — with its echoes of President Obama’s vague references to “violent extremists” uncoupled from the fundamentalist Islam to which said throat-cutting extremists pledge allegiance — scarcely stands up to scrutiny. It is empty talk

      Over the more than 13 years since Al Qaeda attacked America on 9/11, we have seen trains blown up in Madrid, the Tube and a bus bombed in London, Western journalists beheaded, the staff of Charlie Hebdo slaughtered, Jews killed in France and Belgium and now Denmark. This is not the work of a “dark ideology” but of jihadi terror"

      Richard Cohen should try to prevent any further worsening of the secuirty of the Jeiwsh people .To do that he has to confront his own PM -Netanyahu ,and ask him to admit the stupidy of attacking a country that has not attacked it.

      But connecting the obvious dots is not Cohen's s strength .

      Neither is the numerical skill.

  • 'She dedicated the whole of her young life to helping those in need of freedom, justice and peace': American hostage killed in Syria remembered for work in Palestine
  • Muslims are Nazis, 'USA Today' jokes
    • Equating Hamas and Hizbullah with Nazis are like Nazis equating the French Resistance movement with the Evil. Nazi used the media . USA Today is proving same services to air the views of those who killed Gazan from the air they way Churchill killed the Kurds with gas . ( One wonders if Churchill carried the beastly pictures of those Iraqis in his pocket in the name of the freedom of the speech and expression to eliminate any guilt)

    • The messages in this cartoon are not one but many. Nazi was not preoccupied with one local conflict but was interested in creating,sustaining,and winning many . Nazi was highly techno cal educated and until late enjoyed remarkable relationship with the churches,Zionist,freedom movement in third world countries ,active supporters in US and business relationship.
      American media's narratives on Iraq,Iran,Syria,and Libya have been debunked and discredited . The close relationship in multiple realms with the administration have been exposed . The lies are out there staring at their's journalistic souls.
      So why should I believe the canard they say about any Jihadist? Right now they are lying about Ukraine nd Iran for well connected echo chambers out of American defense,academy government,and think tanks are asking them to say so.
      The only similarity between Nazi and the Jihadist I see lie in the common genesis out of poverty,exploitation,sanctions,and also helping g hands to both coming from the same western government .
      A Muslim might get hurt to see this cartoon. But what does a Muslim do :say in Pakistan,Malayasia,or Saudi or Turkey? Why don't they create cartoon? Why don't they blacklist any news organization that are related to say Fox or USA Today? Why do they allow NYT or WSJ to report from thir lands or operate from their shores?
      Why do nt they throw out Denmark or France ? Why don't they create their own legal organization that can have jurisdiction like the laws safeguarding the sanctity of Holocaust have in Europe?
      Muslims are begging these providers to be fair and good. I think that will not happen. What Ottawa Citizen or USA Today does is related to the impotence of the sheltered elite in the face of moral bankruptcy,financial adversity,general sense of nearing the end of the dominance that has lasted for 500 years. While military is trying to do their part in many ways to preserve the skeleton painted with the color of fresh flesh ,the elite of the information business is trying to give a voice to the decaying corpses of the colonialism. And it sounds exactly like the voice of some deranged agents that departed hundred years ago when the insinuation hating of other and grandiose claims about self formed the bulk of the speech made before burning the villages in Africa or Asia or Latin America.

  • Speech to AIPAC could give Netanyahu his out
    • link to lobelog.com
      "In these very moments, the protocols are being rewritten. Rich Jews are writing them in their own handwriting. They, in their wealth, are confirming with their own signatures what anti-Semites used to slander them with in days gone by: We, the elders of Zion, pull the strings of Congress, and the congressmen are nothing but marionettes who do our will. If they don’t understand our words, they’ll understand our threats. And if in the past, we ran the show from behind the scenes, now we’re doing it openly, from center stage. And if you forget our donations, the wellspring will run dry."

      Does it prompt ADL to do what is right and discard what is wrong? No.It simply asks people to refrain from publishing or talking . It sees antisemitism or questions the " obsessions" with Israel when " everybody does it" .
      Israel uses the example of NK or Mynamaar or Sudan when it is challenged in regard to the results of the Israeli behaviors on US but swiftly moves to the status of the " best and only ally " or refers to having " same mother- Judeo Christian values"

Start with the data that support the views that American support sanction on Iran ( BTW why that will not be challenged even if that were the case! ADL and ZOA will jump out of chair and start sending people to Auswotcz or Israel to get rid of negative thoughts on Israel and would start screaming at rising antisemitism and would open similar antisemitism watch branches in Europe ,Canads. India,or Australia as it have in US every time Israel is blamed for the violence in Gaza or WB or for attack on Syria .

      The new heroes like Netanyahu or Bennett or Liberman or Livni or the latest placeholder in inteligence are given royal welcome without ever going though any validating process . Their appearance in Congress itself become the foundation on which the statement is treated as truth . From here it gets to be referred to future -- - " Bennett in front of the Americn legislative body said so and so eliciting standing ovation and confirming American faith in Israeli wisdom and intelligence"

      Are they asked to work as servants? Are they asked to build the new home for the settlers? Do they end up watering the garden ? Are they asked to " trek" over the other side of the border to Jordan,Syria,or to other areas in WBank?

  • Since when is the Southern Poverty Law Center a pro-Israel organization?

  • Is inter-faith work between Jews and Muslims possible?
    • The interfaith meeting or discussion isn't going to resolve a crisis that is political and militaristic in nature from the very begining.
      Will a better understanding of Christianity and Judaism will resolve the recurrent crises between US and Israel? Will it change Netanyahu? Will it stop him from deceiving repeatedly Kerry,Obama, Biden or Clinton? Will it prevent him from building settlement ,squeezing Gaza and WBank in defiance of US frequent requests? Will it prevent him from doing things behind America's back ? Will it stop him from lying ? No . It won't . Repeatedly Israel has acted against US stated interests in different conflicts in ME and has cost US dearly . Those actions have prompted anger and frustration from Demsey,Petraeus ,Biden,Kerry and Obama . But sheer audacity and hubris have kept Israel going knowing fully well that the money would continue to buy them the safety and certainty.
      This very mindset encourages and sustains Israeli intransigence and militancy. The faith is the last thing on people's minds .

    • The importance of this period from 1880 to 1921 was not fully appreciated and understood by Arab. This was the tome a concerted deterimined esistance movement targeting Brtish French forces both physically and politically and resisting immigration of Jewish from Europe could have resulted in a different outcome . Instead Arab squabbled among themselves and trusted British political process .
      Those normal genuine,snd expected resistance and protests are now cited by scholars as evidences of Muslim intransigence . Unfortunately it was not coordinated and sustained enough.

      The other theme that periodically resurrect is the treatment of non Muslim by Muslim in medieval time . One wonders how was the life of the minorities in Africa,India,China at that time. Could they have offered sanctuaries from the Dhimnitude ? Pre Islamic Arab offered something to the Jews that Islamic Arab did not . But that Islamic Arsb also brought something splendid that pre Islamic Arab with a

Blood is more than water,more murder that saving lives more grabbing by forces than sharing, more death than birth,more darkness than light,more fear and hate than acceptance and coexistence ,more xenophobic separateness than outreach - that in sum define the attitude and belief of the tribe against the world of the gentile around them

      Yes FOX news will have experts denouncing the unmitigated disaster that the immigrant community have brought to the values that "FOX hold so dear " if it were some swarthy moslems . They would be called the sleeper cells spreading Shariah and abusing the Western societies . They would be latched to the Al Quida .

  • Why I am not Charlie
    • Some conspiracy theorist exist to infiltrate genuine disbelievers .That was the policy based homework behind the Cognitive Infiltration theories and practices outlined by Samantha Power's Husband neo interventionist husband-,the other side of the same ethically challengd and morally degraded discarded penny embossed with the logo of the logo of the neocons on the other side of the coin.

      Hariri killing was investigated by UN. Why not 911? Rawanda killing by international bodies why not the American wars against Iraq and Libya and Somalia?
      I will discard the worst conspiracy theories on the grounds of the evidences not on some kind of references to alleged intrinsic idiocy,ethnicity,country of origin,or past affiliations with some organizations ,or dress,or smell of food or unsightly nature of the garb ,or the habit to call people to prayers on certain times of the day .

    • Thank you.

    • It was Mali Muslim immigrant who saved anywhere from 6 to 16 French by hiding them in the freezer . He was held later by police to the ground until they realized he was not a terrorist ( how the police can confuse a worker presumably in a normal outfit with the terrorist? ) . He gave them the layout inside the building and the whereabouts of the people inside.
      FOX or CNN won't cover just like it before when an African Muslim's action which prevented the NY terrorism by a Pakistani was not coveted.
      Reason for not covering is that it dilutes the hateful messages and revengeful emotion against the Muslim. Fox and CNN don't want the possibility of understanding and development of common shared concerns or nurturing of shared joint activities against terrorism.
      Why will they anyway? They are part of the problem created by the neocons .

    • Are they charged? Have the neocons been charged for inciting wars? Are the warmongers against Iran being charged? Have the bomb ,bomb crowd of Sheldon, Daniel Pipes, Mc Cain, been charged!
      Have the Fox and CNNcrew been charged? Has the person on Fox demanding the shooting of Muslim been?

    • Thank you for the exposition . This simple explanation behind the Supreme Court decision to ban the uttering of " fire" in the crowded theater should have provided the grounds to jail those who used the post 911 shock to propel the countries to war against Afghanistan and Iraq and labeled countries as Evil and changed the decade's old attitude to the Palestine Israel conflicts.
      They abused the vulnerabilities of the citizen. They abused the shocked paralysis of the citizen. The offered knowingly wrong advice,suggestion e to the confused,angry,frightened ,and revenge hungry citizen and dismissed ,ridiculed,suppressed any alternative. The country was in worse situation of vulnerability than someone in a theater would find him or herself in.

    • One set of dogma is replaced by another set .

    • May be we move the dialogue to a different level and force to introduce a different perspective. For the Zionist it is not the Judaism but the entitlements and selective understanding of the history preceding and postdating the birth of Israel that what work as does the red flag for the raging bull before goring the the opposition .

      For the west (AKA American ) the ideas and the attributes that are given as self evident are as follow - the manifest destiny,the Founding Fathers ,the City on the Shining Hill ,the myth of Indispensable nation and the most notorious among those whoopers are the assertion that the Taxation Without Representation what drove the struggle for the separation from the Crown . Obviously there are other like the idea of "international community and the duty to protect " and "spreading the democracy"
      . .These need to be debunked and dismantled from the conception .They are the reasons of so many ills that have ravaged and dehumanized the rest of the humanities starting from the Native and the Blacks from the inception of the Republic with the active participation of the slave owners land ( native Indian ) grabbing Founding fathers .

    • Richard Dawkins wonders and then answers why so fe Muslim noble laureate.
      He should delve into the Greek Geometry and try to find out why so many Greeks and no slave in the academy or painting,or in the innovation of new ideas in geometry and philosophy
      He should also focus same way why no Natives in US have got the noble prizes ( have they . I am not aware on science or Economics)
      He should also ask why so many Jewish are in Congress but not blacks,Latinos,or Asian or Chinese.
      Scientific studies and pursuits follow the same trend as politics ,trades,,business,and power projection of the ethnicities . It has always done . It will always .
      Sometimes one shall think of the world has missed out an entirely different set of development by restricting the trajectory of scientic opportunities to certain nationalities and ethnicities . It is easy to prove in history,social sciences and in case of economics to certain school
      Dawkins should also consider the vainglorious assertions of Lutwalk that by attacking Saddam (1991) the west was preempting any further scientific progress of Iraq .
      He should read the article in Guatdian( UK) on Tipu Sultan .

    • "Charlie Hebdo had made no secret of the fact that it intended to carry on provoking believing Muslims by targeting the Prophet. Most Muslims were angry about this, but ignored the insult. The paper had reprinted the Danish daily Jyllands-Posten’s cartoons of Muhammad in 2005 – the ones that depicted him as a Pakistani immigrant. The Danish newspaper admitted that it would never publish anything similar depicting Moses or the Jews (perhaps it had already done so: it certainly published articles supporting the Third Reich), but Charlie Hebdo sees itself as having a mission to defend republican secular values against all religions. It has occasionally attacked Catholicism, but it’s hardly ever taken on Judaism (though Israel’s numerous assaults on Palestinians have offered many opportunities) and has concentrated its mockery on Islam. French secularism today seems to encompass anything as long as it’s not Islamic. Denunciations of Islam have been relentless in France, with Michel Houellebecq’s new novel, Soumission (the word Islam means ‘submission’), the latest salvo. It predicts the country being ruled by a president from a group he calls the Muslim Fraternity. Charlie Hebdo, we should not forget, ran a cover lampooning Houellebecq on the day it was attacked. Defending its right to publish, regardless of consequences, is one thing, but sacralising a satirical paper that regularly targets those who are victims of a rampant Islamophobia is almost as foolish as justifying the acts of terror against it. Each feeds on the other.

      French law allows freedoms to be suspended under the threat of unrest or violence. Before now this provision has been invoked to forbid public appearances by the comedian Dieudonné (well known for making anti-Semitic jokes) and to ban pro-Palestinian demonstrations – France is the only Western country to do this. That such actions are not seen as problematic by a majority of the French people speaks volumes. It isn’t just the French: we didn’t see torchlight vigils or mass assemblies anywhere in Europe when it was revealed that the Muslim prisoners handed over to the US by many EU countries (with the plucky Poles and Labour-run Britain in the forefront) had been tortured by the CIA. There is a bit more at stake here than satire." http://www.counterpunch.com

      Tariq Ali

      This essay originally appeared in the London Review of Books.

    • "The people shot at Charlie Hebdo were innocent and didn’t deserve to die, and they also reinforced the status quo vis-a-vis Islamophobia, anti-semitism, and racism. There are no buts, there is no victim blaming, they were disrespectful and had a right to be and didn’t deserve to die for being rude. A lot of people struggle to see it this way so soon after the shootings but this is true.

      They shouldn’t be held as martyrs of freedom of speech, because it’s an insult to freedom of speech and the journalists and political prisoners who have actually braved their way around governments that severely punish you for speaking against them. Charlie Hebdo wrote and drew comfortably their office in Paris, not reporting on war crimes in the third world. "

    • The world is a global village.This metaphor can be extended to ideas,feelings,identities ,and reactions to events . The event in France gives rise to fear of backlashes against muslims in Germany,Canada,and US.The events on Middle East or Pakistan give rise to same anger but misdirected against local Christians or sometimes against Yajids . But this is not new phenomenon . We have the capacity to interpret and internalize. We also have the capacity to misinterpret and project outward .But nothing usually happens until and unless an example is set up or an action is exhorted by the "expert" or the " noble elite". Media and the hosts on the show provide this ammunition to break the psychological boundaries. In US it is the bipartisan consensus for wars and the media composed of FOX and the CNN and WSJ .
      For the Islamic terrorists it is the preachers and the royals in Arab.

    • FOX has been doing its utmost to add fuel to the fire of islamophobia for sometime .

      Now it is looking for some evidences of condemnation from muslim and islamic organizations but having difficulties in finding it
      despite

      "46 examples of Muslim outrage about Paris shooting that Fox News can’t seem.."

      "Not surprisingly, much of the “where is the Muslim outrage” outrage is coming from… Fox News, as Media Matters notes. Fox’s own Monica Crowley, for example, said that Muslims “should be condemning” the attack and that she hadn’t “heard any condemnation… from any groups.” Fox News’ America’s Newsroom guest Steve Emerson complained, “you don’t see denunciations of radical Islam, by name, by mainstream Islamic groups.” Bob Beckel, a host of Fox News’ The Five host said Muslims were “being quiet” about the shooting and accused the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of keeping “their mouth shut when things happen.” link to rawstory.com

      Like the wars to Iraq was no intelligence failure or eagerly awaiting war against Iran is nothing about real news and legitimate facts or threat - so is this yearning of FOX for moderate voices from among muslims . It is about establishing lies ,suppressing the truth,blaming the powerless,worshiping the violence,and whipping the hatred - FOX has mastered it all..

    • "terrorts" have killed person like Margaret Hassan in Iraq . They have killed Italian pro Palestinian activist ( ?journalist) in Gaza. They have killed the young philanthropic worker and muslim convert from US recently in around Syria .

      “Cohen, by no means a war-crazed neocon, is ready for a blood purge, and a good chunk of the political class in this country and Western Europe is right behind him. The actual perpetrators of the horrific act of murder are soon to be forgotten as the hunt for the “enablers” and “fellow travelers” is taken up with glee. And the hunters will range far beyond their home terrain as “links” are discovered in the far corners of the globe: indeed, with this act, the mysterious “al-Qaeda” makes its reappearance in our collective nightmares. That amorphous ghost, which seems to be everywhere and nowhere, will be chased down from Toulouse to Timbuktu – and then on to Tehran, as the West gears up for a fresh rampage across the war-scarred Middle East.

      The ideologues of state terrorism are already sharpening their swords, which resemble pens, eager to slash their way into the kind of “moral clarity” their kind cannot find in peacetime. Over at the New Yorker, George Packer, an enthusiastic supporter of the Iraq war – until it became unpopular – hones his blade: any attempt to “understand” (his scare quotes) what happened in Paris by reference to actual events in the real world is for sissies. The French immigration conundrum, French imperialism, and least of all the invasion of Iraq – all of this is irrelevant. Like all too many intellectuals, who deal in ideas, he is only concerned with “ideology,” as if such a thing could exist without a material basis.

      Why any Americans would want any French Jews come to this country when the French is being blamed unfairly and grotesquely out of proportion ? What is stopping these "french Jewish " or this rabbi to charge same at US as more and more Americans realizes and join in demonstrations.BDS,and demands in cutting off aid and stopping collaboration with Israel ?
      Not that long ago Israeli pundits,ideologues,politicians,stenographers , and rabbi were threatening to dump US and move closer to China and India . They even offered reasons -

      2 Stop[ IDF raising fund in US
      3 Stop sending money that goes to Settlement , the army protecting the settlement ,4 Stop financial and spiritual contact with the synagogue that creates a priesthood providing the moral cover for occupation, and with the academia that supplies distorted ,decontextualized intellectual understandings of the Palestinian reactions to Israeli onslaught .
      5 Admit the dishonesty and abuse of the power that it resorted to in the days following WW2 .

  • Media obsesses over 'free speech' in Charlie Hebdo case while ignoring Israeli targeting of journalists
    • One can lie ,misrepresent ,and parody to produce pain,anger,and to highlight the the condescending western attitude to the belief system of the marginalized ,poor,struggling ,and often inarticulate segments of the piety.
      But its a crime,unacceptable behavior,inappropriate assumption,or ignorance based hatred that should be immediately corrected by removal or kowtowing by the person being accused of sayings things when those are uncomfortable and insensitive to the listener . The problem is that listener belongs to the vetted ,allowed,and exclusive club of history of historical persecution . Even when it is true.

  • Dershowitz story is also an Israel story
    • This is often the case that a witness or an accuser is judged and evaluated on the basis of past association with unrelated but illegal or immoral activities. Is there any statistical data to show that the use of this type of associations yields right result or establishes the correct conclusion?
      Going to the water is not the reason for the drowning . Sailing into the sea is not the reason for the shipwreck . By focussing on certain associations that are inherent in certain kind of activities often distract one from appreciating more proximate reasons that can explain the outcome better. Alcohol or sex are part of early adulthood and one can claim also of teen age college going generation .

      As always the media is so quiet when things of importance leave a blip on the radar only to be forced out of awareness by the media .
      Paris bombings will help the media more to bury this news.

    • I read somewhere ,years ago that Brezhnev had joked with Kissinger over sex and sexy voluptuous blonde girls .Kissinger did not seem to be taken aback against the insinuations.

    • Derschowitz has defended himself against this allegation by insinuating charges of antisemitism,Antizionist,and anti Israelism . Boteach has basically offered same petectives .The accusation of potential antisemitism is at play ,has been mooted and parroted by these two guys .
      They brought the Jewishness in this sordid affairs . Not The girls nor the lawyers brought it .
      Dershowitz is known as a defender of Israel and has made a mark by practicing this over the years . So it is naturaleople would refer to him as staunch Israeli supporter . Boteach is known for being a rabbi who also claims moral authority . So it is natural that people would notice if he tries to defend an immoral action . People would also take notice if they see that Boteach is defending the immoral action of another Jew when he himself is a Jew and his defense is not supported with any knowledge of the events but is based on the existence of the past activities for the Jewish causes .

    • The conference neglects the causes and neglects the contexts that typify these conflicts in the areas inhabited by mostly Muslim. It is like picking up a page out of Shekspere 's numerous novels and then come out with the statements on the particular novel and on Shakespeare .
      Unfortunately too often this shallow ,intentional,deliberately poor analysis has been the norm rather than exception. There was a context before Libya spiraled in violence. There was a context before Syria and before Iraq entered the darkest histories of 21 st century. Same is applicable to Afghanistan that repeatedly failed as a state over last 30 years . But the rabbi won't tread on that path . That is too much of an admission and also too much of an obvious reason not to repeat those same activities ( subversion,pre emotive wars,no fly zone creating terrorist outfit ,allowing NED to engage in overthrowing and agitprop ) pre dating the chaos .in future in unaffected areas inhabited by Muslim - Iran or Azerbazian or Malyasia or Indonesia- . But one can't be so sure that it won't be tried.

      Somalia is another example . This country was turned into terror field by combined actions of US,Ethiopia,and Uganda . Israel played a major part as it did in Sudan.

      Then there is domino effects . Failed state on the border gives rise to all kinds of social problem and political instabilities to the country next .
      War was in Vietnam but the societies that got screwed were Laos,Cambodia,and for perverted was Thailand .

They will sew the national security and cultural experiences together and claim that both are coming under threat from NK and from Sharia while the mounting dangers and anger to America from wars or from support for Israel are not even allowed any discussion .

    • "political scientist Samuel Huntington, was at least honest in acknowledging that: “The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion (to which few members of other civilizations were converted) but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.”[1]

      My understanding is that he was the mentor of Fukuyama . Mentor's view should have put his theory (Islam has bloody borders) to rest. It did not.

    • We have done it and it hasn't stopped .It is in our DNA. We spin philosophy and stories and then fight over them masking the deeper reasons for the fights . I call it the latent factor analysis . But still that possibly doesn't capture the essence of the human nature. The overt variable masks the deeper variable which masks another layers until we go down all the way to the sibling rivalry .

    • One way to mount a critique of a situation or mechanism is to find if an alternative exists or existed . If fighting between human,clans ,societies,or countries cant be stopped ,can it still be minimized ? Can the outcome be made less adverse ? Can the principle of justice be applied ?
      Koran has not stopped empire building or fighting but has anybody or any tenet or any principle in real world? Has the UN body or Geneva Convention stopped torture or ascertained equal /just treatment of the combatants or of the feuding countries?
      Could League of Nation prevent Italian aggression on Africa? Did people suffused with the ideas of renaissance and enlightenment stop enslaving,torturing and raping the indigenous of Africa or Asia or New world? Did Gautam Buddha achieve something without violence ( It was spread by the power of the empire built Ashoka across those very regions who continued to eviscerate themselves and still do ) .There was no major royal patron of Jainiasm and it survives just like a perennially endangered vanishing sect.
      Did Old Testament offer the same protection from the divine laws to the non Jewish people? Did the empire built by Old Testament prophets and kings allow any olive branch or offer any welcome or assure any protection to the local or the surrounding natives? Did the triumph of democracy over Soviet give rise to the free and effective exercise of the democratic rights in the world?
      One can preach whatever he or she wants .But the taste of the pudding always lies in the tasting of the pudding.

  • Israel's proposed Jewish nationality law is a flop on Broadway
    • "proposed Jewish nationality law" is sticking a needle in the eyes of the establishments . THis needs explanations . It is not that these entities ( NYT or other ) did not see it happening or coming or already established in so many ways in the behvaiors of Israel from its inception.

      Israel is just like any other fanatical entitiy trying now to race to the bottom to scrape all rightwing supporters .The adversaries or the comeptitors dont have anything more to show. They have detsroyed Palestinian hopes,houses,futures,have attcked neighbors, destroyed civic societies of Syira and Iraq and and split Sudan .They have killed Iranian citizen and scientists. More bad things can still happen but that involves more wars by US .
      The liberal ,lefties,the true 2 state beleivers have lost long time ago. Now the fight is between two extremists and the fight will get more personal ,vicious,and caluminous . The way to show strong faith,militancy,and support for this kind of Israel ( the only option now left ) is to move inexorably to more right wing fanatic positions.
      But given the nature of of the evolution of fanaticism in Pakistan and Afghanistan or Saudi Arab this development shouldnt be surprising or unexpected .

      From NJ the enlightened Rabbi offers his help . In the process he incites collective violence against every non Jewish person in Israel and guides spiritually how to achieve ethnic purity by ethnic expulsion.
      ( Will Cameron still search Facebook to identify terrorism ? Will Obama ask again the Muslim to moderate and curb the extremism among its youths and religious leaders? Will Maher and Harris keep on searching every page of thousands years old Hadith and Koran to identify the sources of terrorism and intolerance ? Will Pamela Geller look for more bus routes in NJ area to warn the tourists and the locals of the danger of Nazi inspired Sharia ?
      Chances are the Rabbi would end up being one of the leaders Obama and Cameron and Geller and Harris would meet for advice regarding the views of the American Jewry or cite his contribution to tolerance and interfaith understanding . )

  • #JusticeForMikeBrown: NFL star Reggie Bush connects Ferguson to Palestine
    • By letting KKK take over the dirty job of islamophobia and same time mainstreaming the KKK, the Jewish lobbies can safely watch from sidelines the dances of evil across American cities with Muslim population. They don't have to dance and be identified or caught in the action. Park 51 showed how a fringe element can go mainstream and become a White -Christian phenomenon. Sweet ADL then will try to be the arbiter and try to mediate or even periodically denounce the anti Islamophobic violence . Sure a lot of Muslim will fall for that .
      It will become a microcosm of what's happening now in Middle East . The current violences among the sects,tribes,and religions have replaced the violences between broader Arab groups and Jews but the result remain same . Only thing that is positive Jews don't die defending themselves . Others die and keep the Israeli safe and secure .
      KKK could change the dynamics to that direction. Jews won't be blamed for the islamophobia or religious wars between Christiand Muslims but the fight will continue . The Jews will become the defender of both depending on the narrative and the politics of the countries concerned .

    • Recent activities and adoption of new mission by KKK are pregnant with all kinds of pathetic ,destructive,and genocidal possibilities . They have learnt from Europe . The target of the KKK may soon could be the Muslim and anyone looking like muslim( Sikhs, Nation of Islam ..) . Ultra right wing factions of various names and designations have spread across Western Europe. They now collude with the very people once whom they denounced and killed . Those people ,having been elevated by the combination of the economic ,political ,and cultural changes and often by massive forces of negative depiction of the entire race,religion,and culture that now depict the old Christian European history.
      So it is not at all surprising to learn KKK is working with the Jews . Islamophobia in this country is Jewish in origin The sand in the eye is the presence of the intent to reach to the blacks as well. That is just a distraction.

      But the Atomic Reporters obliged the usual suspects by removing the pages from the web that initially probed the nature ,depth,and the interconnected nature of the liars . Its flimsy excuses could have been ignored if it were not pregnant with the worse possible results for real people .
      It says "This tongue-in-cheek effort seeking to illuminate some of the very real disagreements about matters of fact swirling around the Iran nuclear file was deemed too harsh and caused offence and upset to people named in the report, for which we express regret."

      So west coast is busy burying the news that is harmful and destructive and illegal while east coast is busy manufacturing news that are also harmful ,dangerous and illegal. Both also share same conflict of interest . Will WaPo or NYT report these ? Will the Tea Party show the patriotism ? What about Pamella Geller or Milken ? Will they talk of the sleeper cell ?
      Nah ! Bringing that up will be the end of the career .

      "The Israel Lobby

      Foreign Policy, Aaron David Miller, November 7, 2014 (“Would Hillary Be Good For the Holy Land?”):

      Should she become president, on one level, better ties with Israel are virtually guaranteed. . . . Let’s not forget that the Clintons dealt with Bibi too as prime minister. It was never easy. But clearly it was a lot more productive than what we see now. . . . To put it simply, as a more conventional politician, Hillary is good on Israel and relates to the country in a way this president doesn’t. . . . Hillary is from a different generation and functioned in a political world in which being good on Israel was both mandatory and smart."

      Both mandatory and smart.!
      Smartness is understood from the behaviors of Texas Congressman and from all presidential hopefuls of last 6 elections .
      Mandatory? Presidential hopefuls know it. Truman and Lyndon Johnson knew it personally very well to the meager ethical and moral satisfactions that they possessed .
      Does American know that ? How was that big factor was kept out of the consciousness of the electorates?
      How does the charge of antisemitism fit into this claim? Do the Americans have to wait until they hear it from Iranian mullah?
