    The current excuse for this blatant subservience to zionist demands is fear of losing zionist donations , (adelson /saban et al) to the Clinton campaign.

    Sad , isn.t it. A tiny chihuahua threatening to bite a wolfhound if it does not succumb .When are Americans going to take back their nation and give Israel and it,s traitorous Israel firsters a swift boot and send them packing after cancelling their US passports.

      It is too late Amigo. The poison has seeped into various important agencies in this nation, from the media to Congress and even the White House. It has been firmly planted and allowed to breed by threats, donations, well organized attacks demonizing any American that dares to question it’s tactics, or confronts it’s crimes. With the notorious anti-semitic card being played at inappropriate times, they are able to control this nation.

      The time to send the brainwashed and financially paid for Firsters packing is long past, but
      unfortunately we will continue to shower this rogue nation with billions of dollars and lots of unwavering support. This will never change in our lifetime.

    It only took a phone call in 2004 to save 14 homes from being destroyed and that was during the Bush administration!

    During the Yes We Can administration, not even a phone call. Yes We Can is really No, We Won’t. On a brighter note, or actually a person whose integrity is not challenged:

    Anti-Racist Dutch MP Refuses to Shake Netanyahu’s Hand
    Robert Mackey
    Sep. 8 2016, 12:39 a.m.

    A Dutch politician from an anti-racist party declined to shake hands with Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, before a meeting at the Dutch parliament in The Hague on Wednesday.

    Tunahan Kuzu, a member of Parliament who was born in Turkey and co-founded the new multi-ethnic party, Denk, or Think, in 2014 to represent immigrants to the Netherlands, explained later that he intended the gesture as a sign that many in the Netherlands object to the abuse of Palestinian civilians living under Israeli military rule in the occupied territories.

    Photographs and video of the incident showed Kuzu, who was wearing a Palestinian flag pin on his lapel, smile and nod as he was introduced to the Israeli leader but withdraw his right hand behind his back as Netanyahu extended his.

      I was amused by the pro rogue nation Dutch pol who accused Kuzu of anti semitism because he refused to shake hands with the leader of “The only Jewish state ” .

      That netanyahu is a war criminal is apparently of no consequence .He is a Jew and ergo should be treated with respect.

      Sounds as if Holland has it,s version of “The friends of Israel ” firmly ensconced in Dutch affairs.

      Thanks for the link Talkback.That is the best 8 seconds I have had all day.

        Israel is the only idiotic nation in the world that has been able to connect criticism of it (and it’s endless crimes against humanity) with anti-semitism, and the media and many Americans keeps letting them. Anyone can criticize Iran and even Saudi Arabia, and no one will accuse you of being anti Muslim/Arab, you can criticize Islam and it is never associated with any Muslim nation, likewise it is the same for Christian nations. To hear someone being called anti-semitic because he did not want to shake hands with a war monger and the crimes of his nation, is when you realize how ridiculous these accusation of anti-semitism are. I wonder if any world leader or any true journalist in the media will address this and make it clear it is totally outrageous to keep doing so.

        || Kay24: Israel is the only idiotic nation in the world that has been able to connect criticism of it (and it’s endless crimes against humanity) with anti-semitism … ||

        Using the accusation of anti-Semitism – as long as it continues to have potency – to fend off valid criticisms and to forestall accountability is a shrewd move, IMO.

        Conflating Israel with all Jews and all Jews with Israel and actively undermining international laws and human rights and the protections they’re meant to afford all people – including Jews – is idiotic and, well, anti-Semitic.

        Why do Zio-supremacists hate Jews so much?!

      How ironic the water bandits who steal, control, and sell back stolen waters, want to have a water conference. Israel is nothing but a rogue nation that controls it’s neighbors because of the aid and weapons we provide.

    Segregation has been the zionist plan from day one , ( pick your own point of departure).The following article focuses on the period in 1969 and describes the lies , deceit and attempts to control the media to keep the facts about theft of land under the guise of “military purposes ” and later hand it over to civillian groups on which to build illegal settlements .

    here is a line from the article !.

    “Conceal First Settlements From Public, Document Reveals

    The authorities sought to prevent Haaretz and another newspaper from reporting on first settlements; ‘We cause entirely unnecessary damage to ourselves by publicizing things that can basically be done quietly.’
