  • A Republican plan for peacemaking: 'break the will' of the Palestinians and force them to 'accept defeat'
    • ...And then what?

      "Israel should “convince the Palestinians that they have lost,” says Pipes. Say this were possible - say Israel totally annexes Jerusalem and all of the West Bank. Now what? Deny them the vote? What are they to be then, slaves? a free people with curtailed rights? are they to be expelled by the million into the desert? to die?

  • U.S. seeks to counter Palestinian UN resolution with alternative offer, says French diplomat
    • The US veto is automatic and non negotiable. The US veto does not take into account US positions on anything or US foreign policy. Its is solely concerned with Israel's wants and needs. And by 'Israel', I mean Likud.

  • Muslims' beliefs are 'untrue' and 'ridiculous,' 'Salon' author says, offering support for Maher's intolerance
    • Would they have cheered if Tony Blair came on I wonder?

    • It's also worth noting that Salmon Rushdie himself is Muslim. So how does that work with the "all muslims are..." whatever trash Maher comes up with.

    • One could point to disparate events like the worldwide economic collapse, Americans wars in the levant and the remnants of the IRA and say look "christianity is a big problem". Thats the magnitude of generalisation being done about Islam.

      Ist a howl bunch of countries and cultures which have this or that aspect of a religion in common, and demonise every single person in those countries as backward, bigoted and violent.

      I have no truck with religion per se, but I realise that people under the rubric of Judaism, or Christianity or Islam or Buddhism comprise a culture, and to demonise an entire culture is ludicrous, dangerous and ignorant.

      Maher is pig headedly ignorant on this. He is deliberately ignorant, choosing to remain oblivious of the facts so that he can continue to enjoy the dubious pleasures of hatred without being tempered with the knowledge that he might be wrong. The man is in the same category of broadcasting 'professional' as Bill O Reilly.

  • Ambassador Power to kick off 3-hour event on 'never-ending' genocide of Jews
    • How embarassing for Jewish New Yorkers.

      Zionists presume without any apparent self consciousness that they speak for all jews everywhere and that their assertions are axiomatically correct and those opposed to them are jew haters.

      This however marks a new low in ethno-solipsism. They seem to believe that every single person in the entire world is out to get them. man women or child, no goy can resist the urge to hate them some jews.

      Such projection!

      I can understand the origin of Weisel's antipathy toward humanity at large, but Boteach's profound hatred of all things bipedal and non Jewish seems like its based on some cultish groupthink. What a freak!

      Samantha power is a good little soldier who does what she's told. Another in a long line of faithful ambassadors to the UN, who represents the moral fibre and clarity of thought the expected of such public servants. You know, like John Bolton.

  • Under pretext of restoring calm, Netanyahu government is escalating Israel’s war on Palestinians in Jerusalem
  • Another New York Times' reporter's son is in the Israeli army
    • It would be interesting to find out how many (if any) New York Times reporters sons or daughters are currently serving in the armed forces of the United States.

  • When is someone going to lose his job for calling someone an anti-Semite?
    • Anti-semitism. That currency has been debased by overuse. Its value is lost. Nowadays if someone is called an anti-semite by David Harris or Jeffry Goldberg, I rush to read their valuable contribution to the debate on Israels colonial expansion. Do I get an icky white supremacist gushing about "the Jew"? hardly ever. Never in fact. The self evidently anti-semitic or bigoted dont need to be labelled as such, its evident to anyone.

      If anyone were to lose their job over an oversensitivity to bigotry I would be more worried than if they lost their job to an undersensitivity to the same ugly ideology.

      Rush Limbaugh gets to keep up a steady flow of insensitive racism, homophobia and mysogyny - I'd rather he lost his job than the Atlantic's Jeffry Goldberg, say. But I'd much, much rather both lost their readership than their jobs.
