"See UN SC resolutions 62 and 73." I cannot even begin to get my head around how the Security Council can allow itself to remain silent about Israel's illegal acquisition of Palestinian territory by force of war in 1948-1949 - i.e., all the Palestinian territory that Israel occupied outside the partition borders, after the Zionist's unilaterally declared Israel's independence "within frontiers approved by the General Assembly of the United Nations in its Resolution of November 29, 1947", on 14 May 1948. ALL of the territory that Israel is occupying between the partition border and the Green Line is illegally annexed Palestinian territory. ALL of the Palestinian territory that Israel occupies between the partition border and the Green Line is being held under belligerent occupation, why does the world pretend otherwise? How can the Security Council remain silent even when Israel blatantly ignores the terms of the armistice agreements it signed?

"It’s a shame the Parliament won’t debate that situation." Why, Hostage? Why? This is the “Parliament” that amended the British Nationality Act (1981), in 2006, so that “[t]he Secretary of State may by order deprive a person of a citizenship status if the Secretary of State is satisfied that deprivation is conducive to the public good”. The “Parliament” that legitimizes absurd state propaganda such as this: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/277578/Factsheet_15_Deprivation.pdf The “Parliament” with an office that produces “briefing papers” such as this one: http://www.parliament.uk/briefing-papers/sn06820.pdf, which begins by misrepresenting the meaning of a legal term - i.e. “conducive to the public good” - then proceeds to mislead readers through 23 pages of misinformation. The “Parliament” that allows this: https://www.thebureauinvestigates.com/2013/02/27/former-british-citizens-killed-by-drone-strikes-after-passports-revoked/ The “Parliament” that allowed this: https://www.thebureauinvestigates.com/2013/02/26/medieval-exile-the-21-britons-stripped-of-their-citizenship/ The “Parliament” that allows this: https://www.thebureauinvestigates.com/2013/02/27/when-being-born-british-isnt-enough/ "Parliament" remains supreme? “Parliament” can burn. It can burn.

Hostage, A question, if I may. Bearing in mind GCIV Articles 4 and 49, do you consider these statements to be legally sound: Under the laws of occupation, Israeli military personnel operating within the Occupied Territories should in fact be protecting the Palestinian civilian population from Israeli settler attacks, not providing illegal Israeli settlers with security cover when they attack Palestinians. Inside the Occupied Territories the Israeli military's first duty of care is to Palestinian civilians, not to Israeli citizens whose presence within the Occupied Territories is strictly illegal. This is in accordance with International Law.

A Review of the Reviewer of Max Blumenthal's Book

"The guy is trying to outdo his father’s political ranking. The dude is completely Oedipal." FFS, Taxi! By stating: "The dude is completely Oedipal", you're implying that Max wants to kill his father, because Max wants to (be the only one who gets to) fuck his mother, which I doubt was your intention.

"GAWD… your best work seems to be being as bad as the JVP. Why don’t give Max’s some points for being in Gaza while shit rained from the Zionized skys." The point is Alison Weir does equally good work, if not better, and she's been tarred and feathered for no discernible reason by the JVP and/or Max, who are attempting to control the stage and the flow of information by banning all their members from working with Alison in any capacity, by trashing her work and attacking her publicly, by characterizing her as someone who "possibly might be construed by some people in a certain light as maybe being in a tiny way a little bit racist", and they refuse to engage with anyone about any of this in any meaningful way. Moreover, Alison is not the first person who's been subjected to this kind of treatment and she won't be the last unless something changes.

At what point in the above video does Blumenthal "smear Weir as an “anti-Semite”", Sean? In contrast, here is Max Blumenthal on Gilad Atzmon (@around two minutes in): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voeC_SVrngs Which one's the “Goy”? Who is Blumenthal more anti, and if so, why?

"So now, it’s white Americans." How many black American Jews have you met?

"someone should ‘expose’ the current propaganda effort of the left that Jewish supremism is nothing but white racism…making white but not jewish the key element." Being white AND "Jewish" is a key element.
