Bill de Blasio’s trip to Israel is being funded by a Zionist. No wonder he told AIPAC his job is to defend Israel. And Kelly Ayotte of NH, Marco Rubio of FL, and Lindsey Graham of SC– all of them politically ambitious–are also beholden to rightwing supporters of Israel.
Dennis Ross positions himself to be in the Hillary Clinton administration with an article saying Obama was much too hard on Israel in getting the Iran Deal and Clinton was in favor of the possible use of force against Iran, even when the White House was against it
Liberal Zionist organization names the four Jewish victims of violence 5000 miles away but can’t mention Palestinian victims by name. This discriminatory practice makes some people anti-Zionist.

The prime minister of Israel is “by design, the leader of the Jewish world,” the director-general of the Netanyahu’s office, American-born Eli Groner, said; he echoed Netanyahu’s comments to the UN General Assembly on leading the “Jewish People.”
Israel is “a country in a grim mood on the eve of a Jewish holiday,” the Israel-centric New York Times reports on the latest wave of violence. And the paper has not one word about Israeli violence against Palestinians. All the perpetrators are Palestinian.
Jewish Voice for Peace has strongly opposed Senator Ben Cardin’s new legislation aimed at derailing the Iran Deal. But J Street supports it. The argument against the occupation will finally come to the Democratic Party
When NYT editorial blames breakdown of peace process on Palestinians, it lumps “terrorism” and “intifadas” as though the act of rebellion against occupation is a crime. As for Israeli crimes, it covers Israeli massacres with the term “military clashes”
Why are New York Times reporters committed to parroting Israeli propaganda re the cherry tomato when the newspaper can’t cover the “extrajudicial execution” by the country of an 18-year-old Palestinian woman at a checkpoint?
When Netanyahu, Michael Oren and Natan Sharansky all appeal to American Jews to defy their president in support of Israel, they’ve allowed people to broach the topic of dual loyalty– and JJ Goldberg at the Forward agrees
The Israel Project raises money by saying that Israeli soldiers who participated in the 2014 Gaza slaughter believe that advocates for Israel in the US “are fighting the war just as they were.”
According to National Public Radio it’s one thing to throw a brick against oppression 36 years ago in New York City and another to throw a stone today against oppression in Palestine.
“Israel Acts to Combat Violence in Jerusalem” is The New York Times headline. It ought to be: “Palestinians continue to fight back against military occupation of Palestine.”
Sort of a step down from Congress– Netanyahu is coming as a hero to Washington again, speaking to the neoconservative American Enterprise Institute in November
NPR, Bloomberg, and the New Yorker all run sharply critical pieces of the Israel lobby group AIPAC, a signal that its power is in eclipse. And The New Yorker calls out Chuck Schumer for his “extraordinary” identification as the “guardian” of Israel.
Bernie Sanders calls for a political revolution and the break up of Wall Street banks, but when it comes to Israel he wants more military aid and blames the Palestinians equally for the conflict. He personifies the idea of PEP, progressive except Palestine, which is a key to the Israel lobby.
Washington Post columnist Paul Waldman wags finger at Republicans over Muslims, and says Jews empathized with blacks because we were outsiders. Tell that to the Palestinians. This is PEP personified: progressive except Palestine.

A new directive has been given to students to make opposition to the Iran Deal a primary focus of their campus activism and claims: “there is little room for dissent or even discussion over the merits of supporting the Iran deal”. Some students aren’t happy about it.
In Israel’s hour of need, American Jews did not support it on the Iran Deal. They thereby undermined a core principle of US Jewish support for Israel: Judaism is ZIonism. Anti-Zionists have argued that Judaism is not Zionism for years, and lost, till now.
The New York Times was honest about a large factor in the Iran Deal: how many Congresspeople who oppose the deal are Jewish. The debate over the foreign policy breakthrough has often seemed like an inside-Jewish discussion.
Articles on the aftermath of the Iran Deal say the “Jewish community” will be active in the next political cycle, a reference to big Jewish donors who oppose the deal and want retribution for those who backed it. But most American Jews support the Iran Deal, even if they’re not wielding influence.
NYT’s Isabel Kershner fails to interview human rights law expert on Israel’s use of “live fire” on Palestinian stonethrowers, and notes 12 Palestinians were killed by Israeli soldiers only in last paragraph
