  • 'Nothing changed with this law' -- Palestinians respond to 'Nation-state of Jewish people' law
    • || Mooser: “Jon s” should be here soon to tell us the law is simply a harmless expression of national pride ... ||

      Or he'll pop in with the latest soccer score.

  • Seven years a terror suspect
    • || Jon66: ... Settlers, like any other civilians, cannot be targeted and only lose their protection from attack if and for such time as they take a direct part in hostilities ... ||

      Incorrect. According to jon s, settlers need only be deemed "armed terrorists or criminals" in order to both:
      - lose their protection; and
      - immediately become eligible for massacre.

  • 'This is our state, the Jewish state.... our nation, language and flag' --Netanyahu triumphs with new law
    • || Mooser: Yes, Israel must now, finally, come up with a correct and unalterable definition of “Jewish”. Which can be applied in a binary way (Jewish/not).
      And cannot be applied on a graduated scale (not/less/ Jewish/ more/ most). ... ||

      Zionists on MW already seem to know who is Jewish, who is not Jewish and who is not "Jewish enough". Israel just needs to take a walk down to ZioHQ to get the answers it's looking for.

    • || Boris: ... if one of your grandparents is/was Jewish – then Israel recognizes you as a Jew. ... ||

      And why wouldn't it? Israel is a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" primarily of and for people who:
      - undergo a religious conversion to Judaism; or
      - are descended from someone who underwent a religious conversion to Judaism.

    • || Misterioso: Must watch:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxetitXCApY ... ||

      Ms. Erakat is wonderfully eloquent. The Palestinians are fortunate to have her voice.

    • || Emet: Arabs complaining about democracy? Tibi and Odeh with their crocodile tears is something to see. Can someone please remind them that democracy does not exist in the Arab world ... ||

      Tibi and Odeh are Israelis living in Israel. Last I heard, Israel isn't the "Arab world".

      But you can always count on a Zionist to:
      - boast that the religion-supremacist "Jewish State" of Israel is a "moral beacon", a "light unto the nations", a "progressive paradise" and a "Western-style democracy"; and then
      - defend the religion-supremacist "Jewish State" of Israel by pointing out that it's not quite as bad as Saudi Arabia, Mali, African "hellholes", China, 19th-century America, Russia, Syria and Egypt.

      || ... The Koran even permits Muslims to lie. ... ||

      So...who or what permits Zionists to lie as easily and profusely as they do?

    • || Boris: ... There is nothing about religion in this bill. ||

      Yup, not a peep about religion...aside from confirming Israel's status as a religion-supremacist "Jewish State" primarily of and for people all over the world - citizens of homelands all over the world - who have chosen or will choose to embrace the religion-based identity of Jewish.

      Good one.  :-)

    • || HarryLaw: eljay ” As much as possible of geographic Palestine” With all due respect, I think you are wrong about that, the Israelis claim sovereignty over the whole of Palestine ... ||

      I don't believe I am. For their "Jewish State" Zionists want as much as possible of geographic Palestine as they can get. So far, that area has grown from Partition borders to '67 borders to most of geographic Palestine. If they can secure all of it, that's "as much as possible" as they'll get. If they can only secure 98%, that's also "as much as possible" as they'll get.

    • || amigo: Does the Nation State of the Jewish People come with borders. ||

      I think the border are what they've always been: As much as possible of geographic Palestine.

    • ... Netanyahu in triumph

      The "triumph" of supremacism - Jewish or otherwise - is the triumph of injustice and immorality. All hail Bibi, King of Jewish Supremacism.

      ... The EU expresses concern ...

      *snore*

  • Once again, Israel's influence outpaces Russia's
    • ... The same video includes annihilationist fantasies about Iran from Netanyahu and a colleague.

      The prime minister then begins to speak about the Iranian regime… before he is interrupted by an unidentified person off-screen who says, “It will disappear with the help of God.”

      “You said it. From your mouth to God,” Netanyahu says in response as the clip ends.

      ...

      There's no end to the hatefulness, immorality and hypocrisy of Zionists.

  • US has intervened in twice as many elections as Russia
    • || Kay24: ... no other US president has stood next to America’s enemy or friend on a stage, and totally rejected his country and his intelligence officials ... He did not put America first, instead the world saw him put Russia first. ... ||

      What the world saw was "fake news" because according to Trump it's obvious that when...
      - he says "I don't see any reason why it would be Russia";
      - he actually means "I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia."

      Sounds like (The) Donald has been taking word re-definition lessons from Zionists.

    • It cracks me up that American politicians think it's:
      - entirely acceptable for the U.S. to arbitrarily sanction, embargo, bomb, destabilize and "regime-change" other countries; but,
      - entirely unacceptable for Russia to "meddle" in an American election.

  • Mondoweiss Can Respond When News Is Urgent Because of You
  • Leading US Israel supporter is abused at Israeli airport for having 'Palestine' pamphlet
    • || Maghlawatan: ... Power means Bennett and Co can do what they want but what they do reeks of paranoia and insanity. ... ||

      It's hard to know who's crazier:
      - Bennett and Co; or,
      - non-Israeli Jewish Zionists who continue to defend and support those madmen and their madness and, by doing so, endanger themselves and - more importantly - non-Zionist Jews.

      Regardless, it's clear that Jewish / "Jewish State" supremacism is some powerful, mind-altering sh*t!

    • || Ossinev: I note that Hophmi has succumbed to another bout of “whataboutery” diarrhoea. ||

      Whataboutery + "singling out"* = a Zionist two-fer.

    • Michael Koplow, you are absolutely right:
      - The "Jewish State" can be excused for deliberately and unapologetically engaging in terrorism, ethnic cleansing, military occupation, colonialism, oppression, torture, murder and sundry (war) crimes.
      - But it cannot be excused - because there simply is no excuse - for shamefully daring to question the credibility or intentions of a heart-and-soul Zionist like your dear old dad.  :-(

  • Riverdale alumni express outrage after elite NYC school cancels Israeli-Palestinian conflict class following parent pressure
    • || JulianaFarha: ... This morning I’ve been reading about the passage of Israel’s nation state bill in which Jewish Israelis’ ethno-supremacy is finally formalised. The theme of every article is whether Israel has lost its claim to be a democracy, as if that’s the most pressing issue thrown up by this revolting legislation. ... ||

      It's the most-pressing issue for shoot-and-cry Zionists because, well, aggressor-victimhood is a very tough gig...  :-(

  • Maybe Yugoslavia could have beaten France in World Cup
    • || Osinev: ... Where did this quote come from ? ... Apologies if you are simply lampooning. ||

      No worries. I was advised once not to use quotation marks when making stuff up so instead I tend to use italics.  :-)

    • || Ossinev: ... The HebrewVolk Bill has now been passed and Zioland is now officially an Apartheid state. ... https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/israel-passes-controversial-nation-state-bill-1.6291048 ... ||

      ... Netanyahu further said ... " ... Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people, and respects the rights of all of its citizens."

      The prime minister also said that "in the Middle East, only Israel respects [rights]. This is our country, the Jewish state. ... "

      When challenged on Israel's record of past and on-going (war) crimes and human-rights abuses and the fact that a supremacist state by definition cannot "respect the rights of all of its citizens", Mr. Netanyahu - the self-proclaimed leader of every Jewish person in the world regardless of their actual nationality - said in defence of the "Jewish State": "Yeah, well, at least Israel isn't as bad as Saudi Arabia, Mali, African 'hellholes', China, 19th-century America, Russia, Syria or Egypt."

    • || Mooser: “I would rather see two secular and democratic states of and for their respective people”

      That should work out, like splitting up a gold mine. ||

      But you never know - it might work out. So far, leaving the goldmine in the hands of a single supremacist state doesn't seem to be working out very well...for anyone other than the supremacists.

    • IMO the problem isn't partitioned vs. un-partitioned - it's justice, accountability and equality vs. injustice and immorality.

      I would rather see two secular and democratic states of and for their respective people (those living in and up to n-generations removed from), equally, sharing a fairly-partitioned geographic Palestine -vs- a single religion-supremacist "Jewish State" (or "Islamic State") comprising all of un-partitioned geographic Palestine.

  • Denial of entry - the real targets are Palestinians
    • || Misterioso: ... “Israel further tightens its blockade on the strip while rights group denounces measure as ‘morally depraved’.” ... ||

      1. Israel has a problem with the people of Gaza.
      2. It does what it can to crush the people of Gaza.
      3. The people of Gaza rise up in defiance.
      4. Israel deems the people of Gaza to be "armed terrorists or criminals".
      5. According to the Zionist "moral compass", this makes the people of Gaza "armed terrorists or criminals" of Gaza eligible for massacre.
      6. Israel proceeds to massacre the people of Gaza "armed terrorists or criminals" of Gaza.
      7. The problem Israel had with the people of Gaza "armed terrorists or criminals" of Gaza has been solved.

      It's a good plan. I can think of at least one Zionist who would approve.

    • || bcg: @Mondonut: You’re missing my point: the Jews expelled the inhabitants Palestine ... So why shouldn’t the Palestinians ... have the same rights? ... ||

      He didn't miss your point. He knows that one of the core tenets of Zionism is: Jews are entitled to do unto others acts of injustice and immorality they would not have others do unto them.

      Now, he might opt for bluster and say "Palestinians have the same right to expel Jews from Palestine...if they think they're strong enough to do it", but if that were actually to happen he would waste no time:
      - screaming "anti-Semitism!";
      - insisting that Palestinians have no right to expel Jews from Palestine; and
      - demanding justice and accountability.
