  • Examining 'Ten Myths about Israel', by Ilan Pappe
  • Once again, 'NYT' says Judaism = Zionism
    • Zionism has nothing to do with Judaism. Judaism is a religion and an ethical code of behavior. Zionism, however, is a racist ethnocentric ideology that is used to oppress and exploit a helpless people. There are many Jews, believers, and non-believers, who object to Zionism and its ugly political face. Even they, as Jewish Voice for Peace, are slandered as anti-Semites because they support the BDS movement. This movement has nothing to do with anti-Semitism. The problem, however, is the millions of Philo-Semites who function as Zionist's "Willing Executioners". who does their dirty work, especially in Germany? Political functionaries, such as Kenneth Marcus, just do their work for which they were appointed, plus the Zionist political extra load. If one reads the work of Professor Jacov Rabkin or knows about the resistance of the millions of Rabbis against Zionism should fight this wicked ideology with the ideas and arguments of these great intellectuals. Compared to them, the so-called Zionist "intellectuals" are just a nobody.

  • The Clinton scandals entailed violent threats against people who knew about his sex life
    • I hope that Phil Weiss opinion holds right about the end the Clintons, the most corrupt and mafia-like family in the US. How hypocritical Hillary is that she kept mum when her husband Bill screwed around with other women or employed them under his desk. Out of pathological ambition and different sexual preferences, Hillary swallowed her humiliations. More important, however, is that the mainstream media only reported superficially because large parts of the political, financial and liberal elite were involved in the sexism such as the newest revelations show.

      Everybody knows that the Clintons "careers" are paved with numerous death. If the US justice system were worth a damn, the criminal couple would have long been behind bars, or even better in Guantanamo Bay!

  • The Balfour centenary is also the centenary of the Zionist lobby
  • The problem with Miko Peled's 'Holocaust: yes or no'
    • Come on, your moral enforcers from Mondoweiss. Your smear campaign against Miko Peled could not have been done better by the Zionist Hasbara. Don't pretend to be anti-Zionist. You are no better than the so-called liberal Zionists who are hypocrites. Peled never came near denying the Holocaust. Don't forget that even Noam Chomsky supported real Holocaust deniers because they also have their right to freedom of speech, as absurd their opinion might be. For this liberal and laissez-faire attitude, the German sect the "Antideutschen" (Anti-Germans) ostracize Chomsky until now. Jonathan, look who's talking!

  • Soros and the Illuminati! Netanyahu Jr. spreads anti-Semitic cartoon
    • Just keep calm and collected. What do you expect of a spoilt brat? He is just fed up with the justified or unjustified attacks against his parents. His cartoon was classical anti-Semitism. The Nazis could not have done it better.

      Please, focus on the real problems such as the witch-hunt against critics of Israel's brutal occupation policy or the slandering campaigns of the Zionist Israel lobby. The infamous "Simon-Wiesenthal Center (SWC), which is a conservative organization and has nothing to do with hunting Nazi gangsters but much with the defamation of critics of Zionism and its crimes. By the way, the SWC has bought the Simon Wiesenthal brand!

      Around Christmas, this organization publishes its infamous top-ten-anti-Semites list that is always a highlight because it's so grotesque. The SWC has nothing to do with the former Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesenthal, except the name, which they bought to hunt critics of the Zionist regime.

      Why doesn't rank the SWC Yair Netanyahu on top of its yearly charade? But the "Anti-Semite Doers" should follow suit. "Die Antisemiten-Macher" by Abraham Melzer will be published at the Frankfort book-fair.

      You folks in the US should know how juggernaut the Zionist lobby is.

  • Israeli settler leader, rejected by Brazil, gets warm welcome in New York
    • Accepting the former leader of the racist Yesha (settler) council, Dani Dayan, as Israel's Consul General in New York City, after he got rejected as ambassador to Brazil by the Brazilian government, tells a lot about the Zionization of U. S. American and New York's leading Jewish representatives. Their Judaism seems nothing more than meaningless and hollow Zionism. That is why Dayan is the right person they deserve.

      In addition to that, his appointment should tell the American public who calls the shots in the U.S. How can it be that Brazil rejects a man as ambassador and the U. S. accept him as Consul General in the most important city in the world? It's the same old story. President Obama got ridiculed by Netanyahu several times and kept silent. Why should anybody mind, accepting an outspoken racist as representative of a racist and occupying regime in the "land of the free and the home of the brave"?

  • Democratic platform is more militant against Iran than it was before Iran deal
    • Why do you lament about the democratic platform? Both party platforms are rubbish. They are true believers. The American people will see that the war-hawkish Hillary Clinton will lead the country into a war against Iran. She is the neoconservative war-dancing queen. She has a dismal political record. Bernie Sanders should have never endorsed her. He should have run against her either as an independent like Ralph Nader once did or, as Jill Stein suggested, on the Green Party ticket that she offered to him.

      The support of Hamas and Hezbollah by Iran, both are Liberation movements fighting against Israeli and American colonization of the Middle East, has nothing to do with support of "terrorism". The only terrorist regime in the Middle East is the Zionist regime in Israel and its patron, the U. S. Empire.

      Don't bellyache about the rhetoric of election platforms, instead get ready for the next war under Hillary Clinton.

  • Clinton to Palestine: Drop dead
    • What did you expect from Hillary Clinton? She is a Zionist pawn and will lead the US Empire in the next war against Iran. The Zionists have not given up on their dreams to destroy the Mullah regime and Clinton is their tool in this deadly endeavor. In the platform, the Palestinians are fobbed off with the so-called two-state solution, which is a guarantee for the continuation of Israel's colonization of Palestinian land. If Clinton wins, which I don't wish to the American people, the old Zionist crowd will be back and work for the sake of Israel. The American people know what kind of political cook Hillary Clinton is. She is not interested in the well-being of the man in the street because she is the servant of the military-industrial-financial-intelligence-congressional-media complex that will be the only beneficiaries of her presidency. Forget about the politically meaningless platform and vote for the independent or the green candidate.

  • Zionism threatens to bring anti-semitism full-circle
    • When I interviewed the renowned Israeli advocate for Palestinian human rights, Professor Israel Shahak, twice in Israel he always advanced the argument that Zionism and Anti-Semitism are two sides of the same coin. Shahak was not an Anti-Zionist, but a non-Zionist, which makes a significant difference. Although he hated Arafat and called him a "gangster", he did everything in his power to advocate for the rights of Palestinians.

      Over years, I have been wondering how people still can have any illusions about Zionism and its possible good intentions. From the onset, Zionism has been a nationalistic and racist movement in order to create a state for Jews only. David Ben-Gurion's talk about a common future for Arabs and Jews was mere rhetoric . In this respect, the revisionist Movement of Vladimir Jabotinsky, Begin and their ilk was much more honest about the real intentions than the Labor Zionist, not to speak of the so-called liberal Zionists. This holds true till today.

      That the Zionist regime in Israel misuses not only the Holocaust but also anti-Semitic ghosts should not surprise anybody because without the so-called anti-Semitism the racist ideology of Zionism would be doomed to fail. The ghosts of anti-Semitism are made alive if it is needed, for example when the Israeli occupation regime once again massacred thousands of Palestinians in a war or when the Zionist lobby wants to destroy critical politicians, such as is the case in Great Britain right now. I don't want to mention all the "political bodies" in the U. S. for which the Zionist lobby is responsible.

      The American people should not have a pipe dream about Zionism that is the sole problem for a just solution to the Middle East conflict. That's why this ideology has to go.

  • 'New York Times' picks up Bernie Sanders's 'socialist' kibbutz but leaves out the ethnic cleansing
    • Hillary Clinton is a savvy politician and totally untrustworthy. Her presidency would be a recipe for further US-led wars. She is a representative of big business, the war industry, the Wall Street and the Zionist lobby. Haim Saban, the Zionist multi-billionaire is going to put tons of money in her campaign. She has done him already some favors: Inviting Netanyahu to the White House, if she is elected US President, which I hope never is going to happen, and she wrote an anti-BDS letter that supported the meanest Zionist propaganda campaigns against the Palestinians' call for justice and their own state. Her servility towards this right-wing Israel government is just disgusting.

      The American voters should also not forget her support of Bush's criminal war against Iraq. She, together with Susan Rice and Samantha Power, pushed President Obama into the putsch against Muammar al-Gaddafi, which created a chaos in the country that last until now. Her role in the killing of ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi is still unclear. What did she want to hide during her four years as Secretary of State by using her private e-mail account?

      The American people have all the right to distrust her. Bernie Sanders is the right person to elect instead, although a smear campaign against him just started. Evil to him who evil thinks.

  • Congress seeks to undermine Iran deal by linking Iran with ISIS
    • It shouldn't surprise anyone that the Zionist controlled U.S. Congress and the republican hopefuls for the 2016 presidential race are eager to shoot the Iran deal down in flames. These mobbed-up Zionist representatives in Congress try to link Iran to ISIS. Not Iran supports ISIS but the Netanyahu regime in Tel Aviv. Terrorists from ISIS and al-Nusra front are treated for free in Israeli hospitals, perhaps the Saudi regime is paying for it, and then sent back in order to terrorize the legitimate Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad. The only regime in the Middle East that should be boycotted is the Zionist one. It is the only threat to world peace.

  • The effectiveness of the pro-Israel lobby to intimidate our press has reached new heights
    • After having discussed the brutal reality in Palestine that has been created by the Zionist colonialist, a shit storm broke lose over Kate Snow, the anchor women of MSNBC, and her interview partner Martin Fletscher, a longtime correspondent for the region. Their "mistake" was to present a very realistic sequence of maps, which showed the land theft of the Zionists. After the Zionist stalwarts got after them, they had to eat crow. For an outside observer, it's unbelievable how the mind of 320 million Americans can be controlled and manipulated by a tiny well-organized Zionist pressure group. Freedom of Speech has long gone down the drain in the US.

  • State Dep't slams Netanyahu's Hitler story as 'inflammatory' and against 'scholarly evidence'
    • Every time, Netanyahu delivers one of his speeches, they turn out to become more berserk. Forget about his anti-Iranian rants before the US Congress, which have not only insulted President Obama but also the American people who had to witness how a crazed Israeli Prime Minister ridicule their president before the whole world.

      In his last speech to the World Jewish Congress in Jerusalem, however, he took the cake. He relieved Hitler of his evil deed and blamed instead the Grand Mufti for "the Final Solution". This idea, whoever, wasn't Netanyahu's idea. This crazy stuff already "scientifically" proved in the book "Nazis, Islamist, and the Making of the Modern Middle East" by Barry Rubin and Wolfgang Schwanitz.

      Hey guys, do not be fooled by Netanyahu. He is not that intelligent, as the excitement is pretending. He just has very good spin doctors.

  • African leaders want indictments of Bush, Blair and Netanyahu -- NPR
  • Rubio calls out Clinton over settlements -- and his biggest donor funds one
    • It's disgusting to watch how the US presidential candidates outdo each other in servility to the Zionist right-wing regime in Jerusalem. Do these politicians have no other problems? Instead of dealing with the decaying US regime, they promising a brutal occupation regime more money and more deadly weapons in order to secure their "exclusivist ghetto". How much longer want the Americans support Israel's colonialism against an oppressed people?

  • Not a single Muslim is quoted in 'NYT' profile of Geller
  • Is there room for liberal Zionists in an anti-Zionist movement?
    • The younger Palestinian activists should not fool themselves about the "liberalism" of Zionism

      "Liberal Zionism" is a misnomer. There is no such thing as a "liberal Zionist". Is a "liberal Zionist" a little less racist and exclusivist than the "normal" Zionist? Forget about the so-called liberal Zionists and their mendacity. Their liberal rhetoric disguises their exclusivist views of "Eretz Israel" as a Jewish State. Palestinians, don't let yourself be fooled by the rhetoric of liberal Zionists. Just read the book of Yitzhak Laor "The Myth of Liberal Zionism" and you would understand why there is no room for "liberal Zionist" in an anti-Zionist movement. Liberal Zionism and anti-Zionism are like fire and water.

  • Phila Inquirer publishes a lie: 'Anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism are one and the same'
    • Benjamin Weinthal's writings have to be repudiated wherever they are published. He is not a journalist but a right-wing Zionist agitator. He works as the German correspondent for the right-wing paper "Jerusalem Post". His articles on "anti-Semitism" in Germany mediate Israeli readers a totally distorted picture of reality in Germany. I know his scribblings straight from the horse's mouth. He led a smear campaign by the right-wing paper "Die Welt" against me without presenting one evidence. It was all bullshit.

      That he writes "Anti-Zionism and Anti-Semitism are one and the same" is now surprise to anyone who is familiar with the Zionist Hasbara. That his article is co-authored by a fellow of Daniel Pipes's notorious Middle East Forum speaks for itself. The late Israel Shahak told me in an interview that Zionism and Anti-Semitism are two sides of the same coin. The racist ideology of Zionism needs for its permanent colonization of Palestine the scapegoat of ant-Semitism. Already the founder of Zionism, Theodor Herzl, wrote in his Diary: "The anti-Semites will become our most dependable friends, the anti-Semitic countries our allies." The readers of the "Philadelphia Inquirer" should protest in huge numbers against such a trash.

  • The wrong way to defend Chuck Hagel from neoconservative smears
    • I do agree with Alex Kane that the „Israel Lobby“ may „kill“ Chuck Hagel nomination by stigmatizing him as an „anti-Semite“. This is the most ridiculous allegation I’ve heard of. If the lobby gets away with it, it’s going to show to the public where the real power rests in the U. S. concerning foreign policy towards the Middle East. The U. S. government should register the “Israel Lobby” as a “foreign agent” and take away all the tax privileges. The “Israel Lobby” are different from the “Gun Lobby”, the “Tobacco Lobby” and all sorts of domestic lobbies who try to influence U. S. decision making processes.
      My arguments were similar than those of Kane.
