  • Schumer and Macron equate anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism so as to target BDS
    • Memo to Schumer - If your loyalties lie with Israel, you’re free to leave the States; just surrender your US citizenship at the border. No man can serve two masters.

      You have a choice along with your friends, AIPAC, WINEP, et. al. and all the other Israel firsters in Congress. You love Israel so much, go there and stay there. Otherwise your pursuit of a greater Israel will end this way - demographic trends mean that Israel can't have it all -

      It can't be a Jewish state, a democratic state, and a state in control of its whole historical land.

      It can only have two of its objectives at a time.
      Israel can be Jewish and territorial -- but not democratic.
      Or it can be democratic and territorial -- but not Jewish.
      Or finally, it can be Jewish and democratic -- but not territorial.

  • 'You are thieves of history!' Hotovely tells Palestinians, waving books at them
    • Good point - aren't the 'Arabs" she is ranting to Palestinian? If Palestinians don't exist then who is she talking too? These people are so desperate - it's 2017 - when is this crap going to end.
      These arguments and slogans have become clichés and inside jokes, the classics include:

      “Israel made the desert bloom”

      “A land without a people, for a people without a land “

      Or my favorite: “There was never a state called Palestine” – they stick the word ‘state’ in there like it proves their worthless point.

      This last one I find especially entertaining, it clashes so wonderfully with other Israeli talking points. In the end it amounts to “We are under existential threat from the people who don’t exist.”

  • Israel slams UNESCO World Heritage decision on Hebron as Palestinians celebrate 12-3 vote in favor
    • Do you mean how Israel ignores and denies ANYTHING that has to do with Palestine and the Palestinians?

      My favorite is the classic : “There was never a state called Palestine” – they stick the word ‘state’ in there like it proves their worthless point.

      I find this one especially entertaining and hilarious. In the end it amounts to “We are under existential threat from the people who don’t exist.”

    • Oh silly me, I get it now; Palestinians only have those rights which do not conflict with the “right” that Israeli Jews have to take/control what they think is theirs.

      The face of the Zionist entity is worth watching – the face of an entitled bully surprised by the absence of obeisance.

      I think I'll grab a bottle of wine, a bag of popcorn, a nice comfy deck chair and enjoy the sh*t show that is Israel to come.

  • In war against 'cell phones,' Israeli launches social media app
    • BDS is growing here in the US no matter what apartheid Israel tried to pull. Anything with a barcode that begins 729 is illegal settler squatter goods. BDS!

  • I was born ideologically, politically, and spiritually in June 1967 -- settler/ambassador Dani Dayan
    • I loved it when she pointed out that he was born in Argentina, was from the Ukraine but felt he had more of a right to be in her country. Very good insight into the mind of these messianic, racist settlers.

    • This man lives in denial and truly thinks Israels failed apartheid policies will prevail. A good debate in London. The Palestinian woman who speaks clearly makes him uncomfortable.
      No wonder Venezuela rejected him and shame on those who made him Consul General in New York.

      Head to Head - Israeli settlers: Patriots or invaders?

  • After exciting disruptions, David Friedman hearing is a walk in the park
    • You do the math.

    • Congress is considering this nomination of a hardcore pro-settlement lunatic to be the U.S. ambassador to Israel. Five ambassadors, former ambassadors to Israel, of both parties, came out and opposed him on the grounds that he’s essentially insane.

      Softball questions from them all, no mention of the Occupation, illegal settler terrorism, apartheid or human rights. All the 20th century rhetoric came to the fore, Israel is the victim, Palestinians bad, Jews good. It was shameful, embarrassing. And the stooges sitting behind Friedman looked like AIPAC monitors, just like Scientologists making sure he said stayed on point and did not deviate.

      It is not the responsibility of the the Palestinians any other Arab state or any other country or entity to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. They have recognized Israel's right to exist and that is sufficient.

      Israel's survival in incumbent upon it maintaining a facade of being the victim in the conflict and Occupation and Friedman and our pathetic Congress does nothing to dispel that.

      A tiny country the size of Bakersfield Cal that’s 6,000 miles away controls the most powerful nation in the world. Pathetic.

  • Mock campaign supporting two-state solution reveals liberal Israeli racism
    • Hilarious - The agreement with the Palestinians will be based on the principle of “two states for two peoples” and the 1967 line with "arrangements and adjustments as dictated by Israel’s security and demographic needs."

      Of course, no mention of security for the Palestinians from the illegal settler squats who will not stop their fanatical, messianic rampage for sure.

      Silly me, I get it now; Palestinians only have those rights which do not conflict with the “right” that Israeli Jews had to steal most of their land.

      Oh my yes, Israels definition of “peace” means Jewish supremacism and a religion-supremacist “Jewish State” in as much as possible of Palestine.

      Most certainly Israel would want peace…once it is done ethnically cleansing all of Palestine.

      I think I'll grab a bottle of wine, a bag of popcorn and a deck chair and enjoy the sh*t show that is Israel to come.

  • Breaking: UN Security Council passes historic resolution against settlements as two-state solution 'slips away'
    • Annie, Annie, Annie ! I follow your and Phil's and Adam's posts and articles with alacrity. I watched the news and was jumping up and down with joy.

      FINALLY. The tide is turning and there is no going back, Trump or no Trump. Trump is Bush to Nothingyahoo Cheney.

      To the backlash in Congress that is sure to begin - if your loyalties lie with Israel, you’re free to leave the States; just surrender your US citizenship at the border. No man can serve two masters.

      AIPAC called the Obama administration's decision "deeply disturbing." Really ? Karma is a bitch -hahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

  • General under consideration by Trump for Defense has slammed Israel for impending 'apartheid'
    • Israel needs to be slammed for apartheid and the Occupation. “Anti-semite” has lost its sting, because every justified criticism of the Zionist Israeli government is declared to be anti-semitism. The word is so overused and misapplied as to be useless. Indeed, to be declared “anti-semite” by the Israel or the Israel Lobby is to be declared a person of high moral conscience.

      U.S. in all the endless TV coverage and “expert” talking heads does not address the major issue, that is, the problem is not just one of police resources, intelligence failures or flawed immigration laws, but foreign policy.

      As for ISIS or insert whatever “terrorist” group you want here - here we are again wondering, gee, why do they hate us so much? Right now we are a bunch of idiots lying to ourselves thinking that our foreign policy has NOTHING to do with what happens in a “terror” attack. Bullshit.

      Like our own actions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, etc. and our unending, blinding, sycophantic support of apartheid Israel has nothing to do with what happens to us. We’re morally vacant, and opportunistically so. It all goes hand in hand.

      Isis and its unhinged supporters in the U.S. and around the world have managed to bring at least a taste to Americans the terrible carnage that has been going on in the Greater Middle East for the past decades: markets and schools and public buildings blown apart, a region where people—some “guilty, some innocent and “collateral damage” meet death in their homes on a daily basis.

      Until the leaders and opinion makers and talking heads in the U.S., and other countries and their allies, are willing to recognize the extent to which their own massive intervention in the Greater Middle East is also responsible for the terrible situation we find ourselves in today–then, this long, downward spiral to God knows where will only continue its bloody way.

  • Saban urged Clinton campaign to do negative research on Jeremy Ben-Ami re Israel
    • This is disgusting and hypocritical of Shillary as she shrieks about how Russia is trying to 'influence' the election outcome.

      U.S. policy couldn’t be more pro-Israel than it is now ? Wait until Shillary gets there. Haim Saban pledged to spend “as much as necessary” to make her President. Shillary has pledged to invite Nothingyahoo to the While House in her first month as President, to use the occasion to “reaffirm the unbreakable bonds of friendship and unity” between America and Israel, and to do everything to destroy the Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions (BDS) movement.

      She continues to echo Israeli denunciations of Iran as a dangerous “terrorist state” and equate criticism of Israeli policies with “anti-Semitism” while blaming the people of Gaza for Israeli assaults on their wretched territory.

      Our Congress, our government and out soon to be criminal Shillary are bought and paid for by the Israel lobby, AIPAC, WINEP, etc. No one, let me repeat, no one get their hands as deep
      into the American pocket and government as Israelis have been for the past 60 years.
      Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban are just two shining examples.

      As Secretary of State and as a member of the Quartet Shillary did nothing of substance for solving the I/P issue. Not to mention being a whore for AIPAC/Israel Lobby.

      Demonstrating once again the sniveling and shameless fealty to the wealthy that she and her husband have elevated to a high art over the last 30 years. Ugh. Get rid of her.

  • Black Lives Matter will defeat the Israel lobby (because the lobby can't debate reality)
    • “We appreciate these points because the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is deeply committed to addressing many of these issues, too…except, of course, the Palestinian ones and the Occupation”. What a bunch of hypocritical racists. GO BLM GO !!!!!

  • Clinton to Palestine: Drop dead
    • The next war that Israel initiates and incites ? All their next adversary has to do is obliterate their airport and port and Israel is done. Can't wait to hear their victim mentality and hypocrisy, "Gee, what did we EVER do to deserve this?", "Help, help - we need help - just look at what they did to us!", "It's the (fill in whatever group at the moment), it's not our fault!".

      Oh the anger. The anger at finding out that you're not as important as you think you are.

    • Of course the Hilbots on the Dem Platform Committee were not going to let Bernie Sanders get ANY say in the forming of the platform. Disgusting. However, the voices for Palestine are getting to loud to ignore.

      As a lawyer and former Sec. of State it looks like Hillary needs a refresher in international law:

      Reviewing a few facts of international law relating to the Occupation, and Israel’s blatant and constant violations of them, may be helpful:

      Law: An occupying power must not move its own citizens permanently onto the occupied nation’s land. Temporarily housing soldiers on a short-term basis there to maintain peace and the safety of the occupied people is allowed.

      Israeli violations: Israel has moved over half a million Israelis into the West Bank, and Israeli Prime Murderer Benjamin Netanyahu has stated categorically that not one of them will be removed.

      Law: The people of the occupied lands must not be displaced permanently.
      Israeli violations: Millions of Palestinians have been forced from their homes to make room for illegal Israeli settlers.

      Law: The culture of the occupied land must be respected.

      Israeli violations: Israel has done much to destroy and obliterate the culture of Palestine. The destruction of entire towns and villages, mosques and historical sites is ongoing. In one particularly egregious example, Israel bulldozed the ancient Ma’man Allah cemetery, dating at least to the 12th century and possibly earlier, and constructed a ‘Museum of Tolerance’ on the site.

      Law: The occupying power must ensure the safety of the occupied peoples.

      Israeli violations: Bombing the Gaza Strip, breaking into the homes of Palestinians in the West Bank at all hours of the day and night, arresting men, women and children without charge, shooting peaceful protesters in the back, cannot be seen as ensuring their safety, and protesting these atrocious crimes does not make one anti-Semitic.

      Please define exactly what the US “national interest” is with Israel.

      Why is ineffectual resistance to brutal occupation considered terrorism, yet the occupation itself, which takes a horrific toll on all Palestinians on a daily basis, considered acceptable?

      By totally erasing any nod, any mention, any compassion toward the slaughter of Palestinian children, women and men in their homes, schools and hospitals, Hillary Clinton makes a mockery of her touted Methodist upbringing and her declared concern for children everywhere.

      The woman is a sociopathic, narcissist menace to US society. As a life long Dem I refuse to vote for her.

  • Democratic establishment wants to make Palestinians go poof in platform
  • Front-page play for Israel battle shows that Israel has lost the Democratic Party base
    • Oh my, yet another misguided zionist. As a lawyer and former Sec. of State it looks like Hillary, and you hopi, need a refresher in international law:

  • Sanders appoints Palestine advocates to committee drafting Democrat's 2016 platform
    • Oh my, poor hopi - ok - then let's take religion out of it.

      Israel is simultaneously running three systems of government.
      The first is full democracy toward its Jewish citizens — ethnocracy.
      The second is racial discrimination toward the Palestinian minority — creeping Jim Crowism. And the third is occupation of the Palestinian territories with one set of laws for Palestinians and another for Jewish settlers — apartheid.

      Israel, and you, are forgetting that its continued denial of freedom to the Palestinians and its continued racist, apartheid regime are the very essence of the issue.

      As to the end of the state of Israel? Demographic trends mean that Israel can't have it all.
      It can't be a Jewish state, a democratic state, and a state in control of its whole historical land. It can only have two of its objectives at a time.
      Israel can be Jewish and territorial -- but not democratic.
      Or it can be democratic and territorial -- but not Jewish.
      Or finally, it can be Jewish and democratic -- but not territorial.

      Israel has painted themselves into a corner, surrounded by states that loathe them. Their hubris, arrogance and sense of entitlement based on the ridiculous credo of "God's chosen people", has left them an apartheid state, discredited, unmasked, de-legitimized, scorned, reduced to a diplomatic dwarf, maniacally messianic fanatics, laughed at and alienated from the rest of the international community.

  • Hillary Clinton supported Iraq war because of Israel, say Matthews and Landler
    • Big Bad Palestine is treating itty bitty tiny Israel badly.
      One struggles to keep one’s stomach settled when reading such drivel from Bill.
      Please answer these questions Bill on behalf of your "wife".

      Where is the demand that Israel renounce violence and recognize Palestine?

      Please define exactly what the US “national interest” is with Israel.

      Why is ineffectual resistance to brutal occupation considered terrorism, yet the occupation itself, which takes a horrific toll on all Palestinians on a daily basis, considered acceptable?

      By totally erasing any nod, any mention, any compassion toward the slaughter of Palestinian children, women and men in their homes, schools and hospitals, Hillary Clinton makes a mockery of her touted Methodist upbringing and her declared concern for children everywhere.

      With all her self-regarded experience in foreign affairs she continually backs state terrorism against millions of Arab Palestinians trapped in two enclaves, surrounded by walls, military outposts, and suffering from deep poverty, including widespread diseases and severe anemia among Palestinian infants and children.

      Hillary has shown little understanding that her work as Secretary of State was a catastrophe for the Middle East. Her public statements seem to be a combination of mendacity, compartmentalization, and ignorance.

      As a member of the Quartet she did nothing of substance for solving the I/P issue. Not to mention being a whore for AIPAC/Israel Lobby. She has also pleased her financiers. She has again vowed to strengthen U.S.-Israel ties, fight BDS (Boycott, Divest and Sanction), and strengthen the Israeli military machine. The woman is a sociopathic, narcissist menace to US society.

  • 'NYT' touts an Israel apologist's book
    • Another great response. To bad you can't respond directly to his face. He and they always seem so smug. It beggers the mind that these fools just don't get it and shows just how myopic and stupid they all are, especially the NYTs.

    • This is a great question. so succinct. Thank you.

  • Clinton propagates false understanding of Camp David
    • Please, someone, anyone educate Hillary, if that is possible :
      Israeli leaders have rejected every Palestinian proposal for ceasefire or peace,blindly pursuing the Zionist policy of ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people from their homeland in collusion, and bias with the US for 60 years. The Camp David offer? It is no surprise this history was also rewritten to shed Palestinians in a negative light.

      It should first be noted that Palestinians have conceded their claim to 78% of historical Palestine, and agreed to form a new state on the remaining 22%, which is comprised of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
      • Israel proposed that 69 settlements, populated by 85% of West Bank settlers would be annexed by Israel. These settlements would reduce the Palestinian state by 10%, not to mention severely disrupt travel and daily life in the West Bank.
      • Israel proposed “temporary control” of yet another 10% of land that housed the most extreme of settlers. Essentially this means that a foreign power would control the land of another sovereign nation.
      • The remaining areas would be broken up by Israeli bypass roads and checkpoints, forcing Palestinians to live on bantustans or reservations (like South Africans or Native Americans), in a non-contiguous state.
      • Palestinians were also expected to relinquish land considered most essential for trade and tourism.
      • Israel would maintain very vital controls over Palestinian water, Palestinian borders, and Palestinian airspace.

      Anyone in their right minds would not have accepted such a ridiculous proposal that would continue to force millions of people to live as slaves.

  • Israel demands correction from Sanders: it killed only 532 Palestinian children in summer 2014
    • Oh my god. I had to wipe the tears from my eyes from laughing so hard over these bloviating blowhards the ADL and Wapo not to mention that scumbag Oren's ridiculous lunacy" - The continued efforts by these idiots are getting tiresome and becoming white noise. No one believes Israel anymore and the old victim rhetoric for Israel apologists doesn't work anymore. That's the reality.

      “We cannot interfere in the internal elections of the United States" - this one is particularly hilarious. Please someone email them with these words - AIPAC / JINSA/ WINEP/ ADL/ PNAC/ AEI and Netanyahu/Miami/Romney and Rubio/Adelson and Hillary/Haim Saban and that's just for starters - when the Israel Lobby leaves the US government alone then maybe the truth and facts about Israel will finally be put into perspective.

      "but when there is libelous misinformation being spread against Israel, we need to react and stand firm on the truth and the facts.” - because AIPAC/ JINSA/ WINEP/ ADL/ PNAC/ AEI will surely set us, the people of the US, straight right ? These people are delusional acting like none of here can read, disseminate information or Google.

      Here's what Bernie should do - define the money AIPAC has given Hillary and tie it directly to what we give to Israel that could be spent here at home. People understand dollars and cents. Make her and her pro-Israel people defend giving 10 millions dollars a day to a 'vibrant democracy' when our own are going without. Spell it out for them - for the record, Israel is an economic, technological and military powerhouse that provides Israelis with universal health insurance, free education and other social safety nets that are denied the American people payed for by the largess of the US taxpayer. Their heads will then surely explode.

  • Bernie Sanders' record on Palestine
    • Please, let us take a moment to give Bernie some credit for bringing or maybe pushing this issue into at least the semi-mainstream. How often has a presidential candidate uttered the words Palestinian or Occupation? His stance may be lukewarm to some but for others a breath of much needed fresh air. It is about time and long overdue.

      Every article written anywhere gives us the chance to rebut the hasbara, red herrings, accusations, attempted smears and lies that have been fomented for decades. Even if he does not make the nomination, and I hope he does, he has pushed this forward in a positive way and my hat is off to him for that.

  • Trump 'has no business being president' because he would be 'neutral' to Israel -- Clinton tells AIPAC
  • As Trump takes on the neocons, Kristol likens him to Hitler
    • Yitzhak Rabin, Anwar Sadat, Mikhail Gorbachev, F.W. de Klerk, and many others came to recognize the new realities but Nuttinyahoo ? He is an aging out of touch has-been in 2016, the 21st century, still clinging to the idiot tenant that he and his failed, apartheid policies will prevail. Nutty was a mess the first time around and he has confirmed he has been a mess for the rest of his time in office.

      His vision of peace? Go back to his Newsweek interview April 20, 1998.
      “At the end of the final settlement, the Palestinians would have their own territory and the ability to govern themselves, but none of the powers that could threaten Israel.” Nothing, nothing has changed.

      He has painted himself and Israel into a corner, surrounded by states that loathe both of them. Their hubris, arrogance and sense of entitlement based on the ridiculous credo of "God's chosen people", has left them discredited, unmasked, de-legitimized, scorned, reduced to a diplomatic dwarf, maniacally messianic fanatics, laughed at and alienated from the rest of the international community. THAT will be his well deserved legacy. THAT is why he is despised.

  • Obama to sign AIPAC-promoted trade bill that legitimizes Israeli occupation and fights BDS
    • Many thanks Annie, duly noted. It's just so frustrating, he had eight years, EIGHT YEARS to do something, anything. You would think that he would get some balls and tie this new negotiation for aid to Israel with settlement building but, to me, he is such a coward. Your points are all well taken however and I have appreciated all of your postings over the years .

    • And don't forget, last night per the debate Shrillary said she wanted to uphold and continue Obama's policies which will no doubt include blinding, unquestioned support for apartheid Israel. She will set the US back 20+ years in Middle East policy no doubt.

      Make no mistake Shillary is whore for AIPAC - doin' it for Jewish money - with her "I'll call Netanyahoo the first week I'm in office" crap. She will be an Israel firster and do nothing for the Palestinians and just perpetuate the Occupation. The issue has even percolated into American presidential politics: in a letter to mega donor Haim Saban, an Israeli-American businessman, she pledged to “make countering BDS a priority.” She is shameless and someone, somewhere should confront her with this.

      Pathetic isn't it? It is sad indeed that the first African-American President of the United States defends in Israel exactly the kind of institutionalized bigotry, apartheid oppression, and racism in Israel the civil rights movement defeated in this country, a victory that made his election possible. You align yourself with garbage and you end up being garbage.

  • The Kissinger friendship: Clinton called 'Henry' to intercede with 'Bibi'
    • And don't forget, she was part of the "Quartet" who did jack crap about Israel and the illegal settlements, although they were often " deeply troubling", "greatly concerned" and "alarmed" . Yea, right. She did about as much for Palestine as Condi Rice and Dennis Ross, a big fat nothing. I hope she doesn't end up as the nominee. God help us all.

  • Dennis Ross says Clinton was the only president to stamp down anti-Israel forces inside the White House
    • I hope the author was being sarcastic: "... with pivotal roles in the Israel-Palestinian “peace process” since the earliest days of the Madrid and Oslo talks. " Really ? I guess he was so "pivotal" that that is the reason there is peace now between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
      No, you say?

      Yea, how about Dennis Ross? This cheese whiz has based his has been career on 'negotiating' for 30 years with no productive results to his name, the best Israeli lawyer AIPAC dollars could buy in the US goverment. Someone should have stood up and shouted "it is the occupation stupid, and you know it."

      Listening to his double talk, spinning, and distorted, idiotic reasoning it's no wonder he left the Middle East in worse shape that when he started. And the guys is actually proud on his non-accomplishments. A lightening rod into the warped mentality of apartheid Israel. And he's running around teaching that shit too. I can't even stand to look at a picture of this loser, the guy makes my fingernails curl with rage.

  • 'Netanyahu at War' on PBS was dreadful but not without interest
    • Thank for this article. This is what I sent Frontline :

      Thank you for the hypocritical slanted view of the Netanyahu " documentary ". You dredged up the same old, aging cast of characters with little to no women or Palestinian input. You only mentioned the Occupation and AIPAC once. Bravo - you have prevented me from wasting my money and contributing to PBS for the year. Thanks.

      Michael Oren - who has repeatedly insulted Obama - he is an Israel firster > AIPAC > Likudite

      Martin Indyk - Israel firster > AIPAC > Likudite

      And the creme de la creme cheez whiz - Dennis Ross - This cheese whiz who 'negotiated' for 30 years with no productive results to his name, the best Israeli lawyer AIPAC dollars could buy in the US government also an Israel firster > AIPAC > Likudite

      Some feedback for your viewing pleasure although I doubt this will get very far:

      To watch this documentary one would also think that America was a majority Jewish male population that carried two passports instead of a mixed gender population constituting 2% of the America’s demographic. Bibi Netanyahu carried a US and Israeli passport in his youth.

      Michael Oren, former Israeli ambassador to the US was born in America and went to Princeton. Martin Indyk was an Australlian national two weeks before he was granted US citizenship/ made American Ambassador to Israel. Obama’s chief of staff and his senior advisor were both Jewish.

      Three members of Netanyahu’s former political team respond to questions in a flawless American accent- not a coincidence, since they were all born in the United States.

      The American political perspective is offered by Jewish males Marvin Kalb, Jeffry Goldberg, and Peter Beinart.

      In its framing of events the documentary ironically captures the male Washington DC/ New York City male world that determines US/ Israeli policy: women, Palestinians, all non male goyim need not apply to participate.

  • Obama's ISIS czar says we can't defeat extremism without resolving Palestinian issue
    • Latest from Haaretz - Netanyahu responds to Kerry: Palestinians, not Israel, to blame for diplomatic stalemate ? Can anyone, anywhere believe this idiot anymore ?

      Look, all ISIS has to do is target Israel's airport and port and Israel is done for. But Nutty continues to stick his overblown head and ego in the sand. The idiocy of this messianic maniac is beyond belief.

  • 'Untenable one-state reality' is taking hold, Kerry tells Israel supporters
    • Hillary is almost just as bad, pro- Israel and old school. She will drag us back to the 20th century with her ” I will call Bibi the first month I am in office ” bullcrap.

      As Secretary of State she did nothing for the Palestinians, as a member of the Quartet she did nothing for the Palestinians, if president she will do nothing for the Palestinians.

      I will not vote for her.

  • 'Absolute scum' -- Trump's frightening speech
    • My wife announced this morning that she will break her vow and work for Hillary Clinton if Trump is the Republican nominee.

      I agree Annie. Hillary is almost just as bad, pro- Israel and old school. She will drag us back to the 20th century with her " I will call Bibi the first month I am in office " bullcrap.

      As Secretary of State she did nothing for the Palestinians, as a member of the Quartet she did nothing for the Palestinians, if president she will do nothing for the Palestinians.

      I too, will not vote for her.

  • It starts early: Netanyahu warns first graders Hamas is trying to kill them
  • National Public Radio annexes West Bank to Israel
  • Israeli nukes are finally newsworthy-- as US gov't both releases and gags info
    • Israel and the AIPAC driven fear mongering that is allowed to happen in the US media are the ones trumpeting the so called Iran threat.

      Iran is not threat to the US. The Iran issue is 100% Israeli created.

      When Iranian nukes are mentioned the double standard with Israel should be immedietly pointed out.I

      Unlike Iran, Israel simply has way too much to hide and wants to keep it that way.

      Silence about Israelis nuclear weapons and lack of membership to the NPT while maintaining such harsh rhetoric towards Iran’s nuclear program, which is legally allowed to enrich uranium as a NPT member is an example of the kind of outright double standard BS that the United States has been following in its foreign policy.

      When will Obama hold Israel to the same standards that Israel is demanding of Iran and anyone else who threatens Israel’s hegemonic agenda? Level the nuclear playing field or get rid of it.

      It is in line with Israeli rhetoric to demonize Iran. It takes the focus off them and it’s their intention to agitate elsewhere so the world does not focus on their ulterior hegemonic motives.

      Let’s not forget, whatever Israel accuses another country of doing you can bet they themselves have already done it.

      To wit, Mordecai Vanunu provided info and photos to the London Sunday Times in 1986 about Dimona.

      During the Kennedy years,Israel allowed American nuke scientists to make ‘visits’ to Dimona but these proved to be so ineffective they were eventually discontinued.

      When the scientists were allowed into the plant they were rushed through and never allowed to see what they needed to see to confirm that Israel was not developing nuclear weapons.

      Of course, a full inspection of the Dimona plant would have revealed that this was exactly what Israel was doing.

      Tel Aviv needs to be dealt with before Tehran.

  • Obama tells Americans it is 'abrogation of my constitutional duty' to defer to Israel on Iran Deal
  • Israeli minister proposes building island off Gaza coast so Israel can 'disengage' while maintaining siege
    • Just look at the map behind him - that tells all about what Israel is "planning".

      An island nation known as the “Floating Jewish State of Israel” would be a win/win/win/win for the whole world, and would be well worth whatever it cost. - yea, whatever happened to the garbage barge anyway ? A worthy landing place for these idiots.

  • 'Desperate' Senator Graham promises 'violent backlash' by Congress if Palestinians go to UN
    • Graham, Kerry, the US Congress? Nothing but AIPAC whores doin' it for the money.

      Pathetic isn't it? A tiny country the size of Bakersfield Cal that's 6,000 miles away controls the most powerful nation in the world.

      It is sad indeed that the first African-American president of the United States defends in Israel exactly the kind of institutionalized bigotry, apartheid oppression, and racism in Israel the civil rights movement defeated in this country, a victory that made his election possible.

      Good news? There will be when the US recognizes a two-state solution, a separation between this one, the United States, and Israel.

  • Hollywood's latest blacklist shadows Bardem, Cruz, Almodovar
    • And they say Jews don't run Hollywood or the MSM. What a load of crap. Bardem and Cruz will be just fine. They will work in Spain and Europe and continue their spectacular careers. They should be lauded for speaking out.

      As for Haim Saban - he needs the following memo given to him about Israel's "democracy" - Israel is simultaneously running three systems of government. The first is full democracy toward its Jewish citizens — ethnocracy. The second is racial discrimination toward the Palestinian minority — creeping Jim Crowism. And the third is occupation of the Palestinian territories with one set of laws for Palestinians and another for Jewish settlers — apartheid.

      Israel, and you Haim, are forgetting that its continued denial of freedom to the Palestinians and its continued racist, apartheid regime are the very essence of the issue. For Palestinians the list is endless and growing, particularly with each growing settlement, every home demolition, every land confiscation, every eviction and each day that passes that a brutal siege is imposed on the Gaza Strip or that Palestinian refugees are not allowed to return to their homes simply because they are not Jewish. You gotta work with what you have. Logically and morally, if one is an Israel supporter, like you Haim, that‘s not much.

      Can't wait to get your call while your "working the phones".

  • Visiting Israel on AIPAC's dime, Rep. Steve Israel gets defensive about 'war crimes'
    • "Incredibly Bill Pascrell represents Paterson with its large Arab and Muslim population." Really ! VOTE HIM OUT! Steve Israel ? VOTE HIM OUT ! Enough with this BS. You want to pander to Israel? Not a problem, we will help you. Go. And don't let the door hit you on the way out.

  • Will 'Protective Edge' galvanize the US mainstream, as 'Cast Lead' galvanized the left?
    • I'm sick of listening to Obama, Kerry, Victoria Nuland and her ilk, Samantha Power, Congress, and the US MSM being whores to AIPAC and Israel.

      I am sick and tired of Obama and Kerry's mumblings about sanctions for Russia and not one word to the American people, about the atrocities by Israel in Gaza. Kerry - "the people of Gaza should have some freedom. " SOME ? How do these idiots look themselves in the mirror.

      Pathetic and embarrassing isn't it? It is sad indeed that the first African-American president of the United States blindly defends in Israel exactly the kind of institutionalized bigotry, apartheid oppression, racism, and violence in Israel the civil rights movement defeated in this country, a victory that made his election possible.

      Obama needs to author a follow up entitled "The Audacity of Nope".

      Good news? There will be when the US recognizes a two-state solution, a separation between Israel and this one, the United States.

  • NBA owner Sterling reportedly sought to justify his racism by citing Israeli racism
    • If we, the US are not putting up with this idiots statements about racism, then why are we, as a nation, putting up with Israeli racism towards the Palestinians. This has got to end.

  • How many 'Palestinian Arabs' want to kill 'all Jews?'
    • I think the bigger question that should be counter-posed is how many Jews want to kill Palestinians ? The kill ratio is 10 Palestinians to 1 Jew. The illegal settler squats go after Palestinians everyday not to mention the night raid and detentions that occur every day and night. Someone ought to rebuttal this idiotic and erroneous statement of Pamela Paul's with the facts.

  • Not an April Fool's joke: U.S. weighs releasing Pollard to keep Israelis at negotiating table
    • Memo to the Palestinians - NO DEAL !
      - The Palestinians will agree to extend the negotiations for a year, until 2015, and will refrain during this period from taking any unilateral actions at the United Nations.
      survey says ! No, they will agree to extend if Israel makes no unilateral actions such as continued illegal settlement building, night raids, and detentions.

      - The United States will free the spy Jonathan Pollard before Passover. survey says - Jonathan Pollard for Marwan Barghouti period.

      - Israel will initiate a fourth round of prisoner releases that will include 14 Israeli Arabs [Palestinian citizens of Israel] survey says - this to happen before Pollard is released for Barghouti and before passover.

      - Israel will release 400 Palestinian prisoners “who have no blood on their hands,” that only have a few months remaining on their sentences. These prisoners to be released will be determined by Israel and will include women and minors. Survey says - same as above but the Palestinians will determine who will be released.

      - Israel will freeze most of the construction, except in East Jerusalem, and use restraint [rein in] in publishing building tenders and marketing land to contractors. - survey says - all illegal settlement construction will be frozen ESPECIALLY East Jerusalem and all publishing building tenders and marketing land to contractors are null and void.

      Anything else is a sham and will expose the Israel, again, as a lying sack of hooey.

  • Effort to remove Jews from West Bank is akin to Nazi slaughter -- settler spokesman
    • This man is an idiot. Someone should send him the Great Britain 'mandate':

      His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in PALESTINE of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in PALESTINE, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.

      In addition to be sent the video of the actual truth about Palestine in response to Danny Ayalon's hasbara:

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBYkBqY1-LM

      Finally, someone should inform this ignorant old man that the Palestinians are not going anywhere. They here to stay. On their land. Forever.

  • PLO official: Kerry threatened to stop funds if Palestinians do not agree to his framework
    • So much for Kerry's 'fair and balanced' remarks at the start of the 'negotiations'. Whatever he is doing to the Palestinians he should be doing double with the Israelis. Shame on Kerry and shame on Obama. I hope the Palestinians showed Kerry the door and slammed it shut as he was walking out. Time for the ICC and more BDS.

  • Netanyahu ducks Mandela memorial
  • Netanyahu calls Iran's opening a 'smokescreen' 'on its path to the bomb'
    • Oh Dear, I do believe there were some typos in that speech:

      I appreciate President Obama’s statement that Israel's conciliatory words will have to be matched by action that is transparent and verifiable. And I look forward to discussing this with the president in Washington next week. Israel thinks that soothing words and token actions will enable it continue on its path to full apartheid oppression of the Palestinian people. Like South Africa before it, Israel will try to remove sanctions by offering cosmetic concessions while preserving its ability to rapidly build expand the illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank at a time of its choosing. The world would welcome a genuine diplomatic solution that truly dismantles Israel's capacity to continue to develop illegal settlements, but we will not be fooled by half measures that merely provide a smokescreen for Israel's continual pursuit of apartheid oppression and denial of human rights of the Palestinian people, and the world should not be fooled, either.

      There, that's better.

  • AIPAC flexes its muscle on Iran and Egypt
    • I am so tired of this buffoon Netanyahoo, he is an aging dinosaur who's time has come and gone. When will someone, on "Face the Nation' or someplace else, somewhere, sometime say to this idiot, "We are going to ratchet up the sanctions and make it clear to you and Israel that you will not continue to get away with it (illegal settlements and the occupation). And if sanctions don't work then we'll be prepared to take financial, United Nations, and ICC action, that's the only thing that will get your attention".

      The stink of the occupation is getting to be to much now. The USA once a respected country is quickly catching up to Israel. You align yourself with garbage and you end up being garbage.

  • State Department official: 'You are likely to see Israeli settlements continue' during peace talks
    • Pathetic isn't it? A tiny country the size of Bakersfield California that's 6,000 miles away controls the most powerful nation in the world. Obama, Kerry, our sycophantic Congress should be ashamed of themselves.

  • Netanyahu says Iran threatens US mainland, and AIPAC and Congress cowboy up for war
    • All Bob Scheiffer or anyone on that panel had to say, if they had the balls and were not cowed by AIPAC and the Israel Lobby, to Netanyahoo is this: "And tell us Prime Minister when Israel intends to sign the NNPT which Iran has done already. Please tell us when Israel will allow IAEA inspections as Iran has done because if Israel wants Iranian nuclear transparency then Israel better be just as transparent. And as long as Israel defends nuclear ambiguity as 'strategic advantage', Iran can also defend it's nuclear ambiguity as 'strategic advantage'. Iran is sovereign state and is allowed under the NNPT to enrich uranium. How do you response to that Mr. Netanyahoo?" And watch Netanyahoo squirm, deflect, and lie on American television. Our "journalists" never really do their job and that is the shameful thing here, they never ask the hard questions, not even Bob Schieffer. For shame.

  • Is EU's stand on settlements a carrot or a stick?
    • While it is correct to say that Israel classes Jerusalem as her capital city, this is not recognized by any country other than Israel and those nations enjoying diplomatic relations with Israel have their embassies in Tel Aviv.

      All the big newspapers are published in Tel Aviv, all the banks are headquartered in Tel Aviv, and most of the large companies are headquartered in the Tel Aviv area. The stock market is in Tel Aviv as are the majority of the theater companies.

      Under international law, neither East nor West Jerusalem is considered Israel’s capital. Tel Aviv is recognised as Israel’s capital, pending a negotiated settlement with the Palestinians.

      East Jerusalem is considered by the international community to be illegally occupied by Israel, in contravention of several binding UN Security Council Resolutions.

      In these resolutions, the United Nations Security Council has also called for no measures to be taken to change the status of Jerusalem until a final settlement is reached between the sides.

      Declaring Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is an attempt to change this status, and is thus a violation of these Security Council resolutions and against international law.

      Immediately after Israel invaded and occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip in June 1967, the Palestinians offered to establish a demilitarized state if Israel would withdraw.

      Israel refused and went on to colonize all occupied Arab lands, including to this day, Syria’s Golan Heights, as well as continued occupation of Lebanon’s Shebaa Farms.

      The most extensive violator of Security Council resolutions is Israel.
      Israel’s rejection of the Arab League land-for-peace formula put forward in Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338 arguably puts Israel in violation of these resolutions, long seen as the basis for Middle East peace.

      More clearly, Israel has defied Resolutions 267, 271 and 298, which demand that it rescind its annexation of greater East Jerusalem, as well as dozens of other resolutions insisting that Israel cease its violations of the Fourth Geneva Convention, such as deportations, demolition of homes, collective punishment and seizure of private property.

      UN Security Council resolutions are well grounded in international law. Security Council Resolutions 446, 452 and 465 require that Israel evacuate all its illegal settlements on occupied Arab lands.

      The Knesset can sit where it wants. Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel. Why? it’s all against international law. But then you knew that didn’t you?

  • 'New York Times' profile of group bent on sanctioning Iran fails to mention Israel connections
    • @Sumud-EXCELLANT IDEA! Let's do it. We can give that tool Dennis Ross a run for his money, 30 years as a 'negotiator' and what does he have to show for it?

      Let's take it a step further. When an AIPAC endorsed candidate runs just spell out for the people in that district all the money we give to Israel that could be spend here at home. People understand dollars and cents. Make AIPAC and the people who run on a pro-Israel ticket defend giving 10 millions dollars a day to a 'vibrant democracy' when our own are going without. Spell it out for them and shame these AIPACers, Neocons, Israeli hawks, and anyone else of their ilk. It's long overdue.

  • End your illusion: Israeli government will never implement a two-state solution, top official says
    • Demographic trends mean that Israel can't have it all. It can't be a Jewish state, a democratic state, and a state in control of its whole historical land. It can only have two of its objectives at a time. Think of it this way: Israel can be Jewish and territorial -- but not democratic. Or it can be democratic and territorial -- but not Jewish. Or finally, it can be Jewish and democratic -- but not territorial. This third choice is the one that can conceivably lead to a two-state solution. Excuse me but this Mr. Danon and the rest of his ilk are, my god, arrogant pricks. Not only that, they are self righteous, ignorant, stupid fools.

  • Chas Freeman on Israel's self-inflicted existential crisis
    • Pathetic isn't it? A tiny country the size of Bakersfield California that's 6,000 miles away controls the most powerful nation in the world.

      It is sad indeed that the first African-American president of the United States defends in Israel exactly the kind of institutionalized bigotry, apartheid oppression, and racism in Israel the civil rights movement defeated in this country, a victory that made his election possible.

      Good news? There will be when the US recognizes a two-state solution, a separation between Israel and this one, the United States.

      Democracy has no meaning when the population at hand is not allowed to take part in it.

  • Palestinian's message to Kerry: 'We do not trust you and America'
    • Economic package? In a hundred years the Palestinians couldn't get their hands as deep into the American pocket as Israelis have been for the past 60 years.

      While the US can preach to the Palestinians about how and when to demand the end of their 45-year-long military occupation, the Obama administration says the US "cannot dictate the terms" to Israel. The Palestinians have every right to be wary of this "package".

      Back in 1991 when the Israelis and their US lackeys were demanding $10 billion in loan guarantees and GHW Bush, the last president who showed some spine against Israel was refusing to go along them, Ted Koppel hosted a debate on the subject on Nightline between Stuart Eizenstat, a former Carter White House staff member and uberZionist, and Rep. David Obie, a relatively independent Democrat from Michigan with a significant Arab constituency.

      When Eizenstat defended Israel’s credit, noting that every year they paid back to the US exactly what Israel owed us, Obey quickly shot back, saying, ‘that’s not surprising since we give them the money to pay us back.’

      If he was any kind of a journalist and not a pro-Israel talking doll, Koppel should have loudly exclaimed, “What, we give them the money to pay us back?” But, of course, he didn’t and quickly changed the subject.

      What Obey was referring to was Public Law 184, originally known as the Cranston Amendment, named after its sponsor, Sen. Alan Cranston (D-CA) that guaranteed to Israel each year, at the very minimum, a sufficient amount of aid to cover its debt to the US.

      Clearly Kerry will put together a "package" not as advantageous to the Palestinians as the one for Israel.

  • Richard Engel says Syrian rebel journalists are 'noble,' but journalists whose cause is Hamas aren't really journalists
    • Richard Engel may speak Arabic and proclaim to be a reporter but he is and AIPAC, Rachel Maddow, knows where is paycheck is coming from "reporter". Not once, let me repeat that, not once, have I heard come out in the defense of the Palestinians or speak about in honest or fair terms about Israel or Palestine. The man is a shill and should be sent back to whatever hole he crawled out of.

  • In bill discriminating against Arab- and Muslim-Americans, Boxer and 17 other senators serve Israeli gov't over their own -- Greenwald
  • Questioning Israel's 'international legitimacy,' Siegman says two-state solution would require Kerry to reject 'robbery' beyond '67 lines
    • Obviously there was a misquote here:
      "he ruled out recognition of Hamas and its participation in a Palestinian unity government as long as it refuses to recognize Israel's legitimacy. He also expects them to renounce resort to violence. "

      Really? Shouldn't it be "he ruled out recognition of Palestine and its participation in a Palestinian unity government as long as Israel refuses to recognize Palestinian legitimacy. He also expects Israel to renounce resort to violence as in what the illegal settler squats do everyday to terrorize, kill, and steal more land. What a hyprocrite, same old crap.

  • No peace plan and lots of photo-ops: White House sets low expectations for Obama visit to Middle East
    • Geez I think Rhodes was a little confused there for a minute in talking about Egypt, er, was it Israel? Yea, he must have meant Israel when he said, "We’ve been very clear with the Israeli government, the democratically elected government in Israel, that they need to uphold their responsibilities, including their international agreements, which obviously includes the peace treaty with the Palestinians, and thus far they have not done that.”

      And if he didn't mean that then he and the Obama administration are the blazing hypocrites they always were. Obama knows no shame.

  • Netherlands takes bold move: settlement products must be labeled
    • Let's hope this is truly the beginning. To boycott Israeli goods, just don't buy anything if the barcode begins with 729....

  • Will weary Obama utter bromides about peace to Israelis, or a challenge?
    • "E1 was the last straw. If Obama wants to be remembered as a great statesman instead of a pussy, he should tell Israel to cut the crap & allow for a bi-national one-state solution, incorporating Gaza & the WB, with equal citizenship rights for the anschlussed Palestinians. " Oh god, I love it. Why, oh why, can't someone in Obama's cabinet speak this succinct truth - just cut the crap. Truer words were never spoken. I love it. Thank you.

    • While the US can preach to the Palestinians about how and when to demand the end of their 45-year-long military occupation, Obama and other Israel firsters say the US "cannot dictate the terms" to Israel.

  • Jim Crow in our time: 'NYT' credits Israeli poll that excludes 20% of population who aren't Jewish
    • Peres needs to stop the rhetoric. The world has had enough of Israel and should say this to Peres and them:

      If Israel accepts international demands, forsakes terror, stops firing missiles at Gaza and anyone else that does not agree with their failed policies and recognizes the existence of the State of Palestine, it will be possible to open negotiations.

  • Once she joined 'Women in Black' and opposed aid to Israel. And then-- she ran for Congress and went to AIPAC
    • The solution is simple - when an AIPAC candidate runs just spell out for the people in that district all the money we give to Israel that could be spend here at home. People understand dollars and cents. Make AIPAC and the people who run on a pro-Israel ticket defend giving 10 millions dollars a day to a 'vibrant democracy' when our own are going without. Spell it out for them and shame these AIPACers. It's long overdue. This woman has not said one original thing she is just reciting the AIPAC rhetoric. Demand that she answer why we should keep protecting Israel and not our own here at home. Shame on her.

  • What '60 Minutes' & Bob Simon got right and wrong
    • No doubt AIPAC and Israel Lobby's sayanim gave the "information" to Mr. Oren. Mr. Simon should have pointed out that unlike Israel, in the US there is still freedom of speech and Mr. Oren's attempt to stifle criticizing Israel does not work anymore. I quickly emailed 60 Minutes a huge BRAVO for airing this story and exposing the ugliness and attempted manipulation by Mr. Oren...does the man have no shame?

  • 'Dear activist, first solve the real problems of the region' -- Netanyahu's sophomoric letter to visitors to Palestine

      "We have chosen to protest Israels regime's daily savagery against the Palestinian people, which has claimed thousands of lives, we have chosen to protest Israels brutal crackdown on dissent and support of Israeli terrorism throughout the WB and Gaza. Yes, we have chosen to protest against Israel, the Middle East's sole imagined and false democracy ... We therefore suggest that you, Bibi, first solve these real problems, and then come back and share with us your experience. Have a nice day.

      My president stood utterly alone on the world stage as the sole head of state refusing to recognize the existence of a Palestinian state just so he can appease an ally, Israel, that over the last few years has repeatedly gone of out its way to embarrass his administration and stifle his attempts at achieving a two-state solution. By all means he should write another book entitled "The Audacity of Nope".

      Good news? There will be when the US recognizes a two-state solution, a separation between their country and this one, the United States.
