Knifing Settlers in Broad Daylight
October 21, 2015 6:44 pm
Great story. 99% of the world would be happy to see these settlers hanging high from the gallows, as they're the worst form of squatters on this planet. To have them hang high from newly constructed gallows at Masada would be poetic justice. Simply put, Israel expansion and occupied territories is a war zone. No one has the right to build neighborhoods with pools and community centers. The only structure that is allowed to be constructed in occupied territories are lookout towers during war. It's a war zone, not a place to build a home for ethnic clans. Palestinians are terrorized by these multi-family usurpers who have a bible and a gun to justify their existence. The only reason this racket is enabled is because the zionist/diaspora network lobbies western governments to ignore their criminal actions. Israel 'proper', if that's the word, was stolen in the same manner. When are enough people in the west going to take action against the criminal state of Israel? The Zionists don't provide the west with anything of value, but moreover take from the West to build this apartheid fantasy of returning to a homeland - that's been inhabited by Arabs for two thousand years. If the Criminal State didn't have lots of diaspora capitol coming in, and a solid lobbying effort worldwide, Israel would not exist. Sadly, money and connivance is what keep their dream alive, but Jewish kids across the globe, continue to travel to Israel for summer camp fun!
Plato’s Soap Box: America is Occupied
October 16, 2015 1:33 pm
" What started as disgust..." I'm way past the 'disgust' mark also. Even today, NY Mayor DeBlasio is headed to Jerusalem to make a speech about antisemitism. What a freak show the entire venue is at this time - as he should be headed there to talk about the ill effects of Israel's occupation and their parasitism on the US. But another willing stooge will make his journey because of future Jewish campaign money coupled with self interest. Our corporate media is completely controlled to ONLY speak positively of Israel and/or don't speak about them at all - the same is true for politicians, as they dare not mutter a word of criticism. Only the lefty Jewish people offer up some critiques, but they are ineffective at best in this regard (yes, the JVP/Alison Weir sideshow) Look at the media for any criticism of Israel's incitement of a new intifada and you'll find jack squat about it. Munayyer found a lede in USA Today about occupation (written by a Jewish woman) who wrote about occupation! BFD! https://twitter.com/YousefMunayyer?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor The statement 'To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.' is a fitting 'reality' here. The entire control has a liberal Bolshie/Cheka feel to it. I'm reading about the Haitian revolution circa 1790's, and at the time the Haitian slaves outnumbered their rulers by 10 to 1. It's past time to take the megaphone from these corrupted crooks who will never change the status quo. It's going to take a new class of leaders to replace the beltway and media shills, but it will happen.
Palestinians Must Not Fall Into This Trap, Again! – Sam Bahour/HuffPo

U.S. 'excessive force' comment touches nerve in Israel http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/10/15/us-israel-palestinians-idUSKCN0S90X820151015 "At a daily press briefing on Wednesday, U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby said Israel, which has set up roadblocks in East Jerusalem, where many of the Palestinian attackers resided, has a right and responsibility to protect its citizens. He added: "Now, we have seen some – I wouldn’t call the checkpoints this - but we’ve certainly seen some reports of what many would consider excessive use of force. "Obviously, we don’t like to see that, and we want to see restrictions that are elevated in this time of violence to be as temporary as possible if they have to be enacted," Kirby said, without citing specific incidents."
Rachel Roberts and the Alison Weir Controversy – FaceBook Message

'Dennis Ross, Aaron David Miller, Martin Indyk ' These guys are well known zionists. Not sure if you remember Arthur Waskow, an insidious operator that opposed BDS around 2010 posing as a lefty lliberal peacenik rabbi (reminds me of wondering Jew) In 2012 he debated Mustafa Barghouti on Democracy Now. It was clear he was controlled opposition.

Yes, Jeff has raised some reasonable questions, and his critics seem to really get rattled by him. Of course he raised past issues on MW that brought the same ire - a past that they would prefer to sweep under the rug. This group wants to say 'move on' and let's move toward peace in the bright future together, and let's sweep the old stuff under the rug. MW also made this policy change a few years ago, but you can't escape the need to understand what motivates persons like the Zionists and their 'hateful' occupation. Why is the new enemy this 'hate' hobgoblin? Are the opposing forces the handmaidens of love & and peace? What Weir did was to spread her message to some potentially unsavory characters and she is being excommunicated by Jewish peaceniks in the USA movement to support Palestinians. Go figure... It seems either you believe she was getting her message to a larger audience (which included the 'haters' like this Clay Douglas) or she is a closet antisemite - as JVP believes. But forces tarred Greta Berlin as an antisemite in a similar fashion only a few years prior. I thought it may be an unconscious aversion to having non-Jewish critics in your camp - like if you had some Greek guy in an Italian mob telling them how to reform things, some of the paisano's just may get a bit prickly. Atzmon made all good points in his cynical writing 'The Protocols Of The Elders Of ‘Anti’ Zion'. http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/2015/5/27/the-protocols-of-the-elders-of-anti-zion I have to say that not everyone understands, or will understand the problems like a JVP member in the USA. And how much progress are they actually making here? Maybe a lot, but maybe they are losing a lot. MW's Alison Weir post a few weeks ago had the most comments ever for a post. I wonder who is winning the debate? Time will tell...

What victories have they accomplished for the Palestinians? And with their donor privacy, who can really know who is underwriting them? Could be some 'former' zionists who aren't so former. https://jewishvoiceforpeace.org/giving/donor-privacy/ They should 'diversify' if they want to be taken seriously in the USA. Their board members and staff are all Jewish, and white. Imagine a group called Christian Zionists for Peace (CZP)? lol... sounds ridiculous, but so is JVP advocating for Palestinians on the other side of the globe when they can't afford to have one Palestinian or non Jewish person on their board (no tokens even to speak of). And they could be doing the 'lord's work' in accomplishing peace, but it looks like an supersized Jewish minyan. Aren't these the same people that tell the WASPs to diversify their social framework? Practice what you preach JVP and get over yourselves already.
Artists got ‘Homeland is racist’ Arabic graffiti into the latest episode of ‘Homeland’ – Elahe Izadi/The Washington Post
October 15, 2015 8:21 pm
Whoops, says showtime producers. lol. This show is a show for neocon's and their children to watch by the fire. Mandy Patankin is the neocon Saul, who steers a koo-koo bird shiksa agent named Carry Mathison who needs meds to make it through the day. Only Saul can make her focus on catching the terrorists. Well, I exaggerate for effect, but that's the story. The writers of the show are Jewish. (Howie Gordon from Queens NY and Gideon Raff is Israeli) ‘Homeland’ writer’s work shaped by Jewish heritage, IDF service http://www.jns.org/latest-articles/2013/7/22/homeland-creators-work-shaped-by-jewish-heritage-idf-service#.ViAJfn6rTRY=
Dignity or Death

Israeli society is by and large imbued with hate, so I wouldn't go so far to indulge like they do. But I tend to hate schemers, dishonest hucksters and shady operators - And all of the greasy Zionists seem to possess these traits. They embody poison to me.

WATCH: Israeli undercover agents shoot unarmed youth at point blank range – +972 Magazine
October 8, 2015 1:49 pm
Very slick how the Israelis are the ones throwing rocks at the IDF but then pull out the handguns and turn on the people they are with. Reminds me of JVP tactics. The undercover ones are in the back. Note the one with the yellow shirt. (video does not post, but see link above)
Idiot Howard Stern attacks Roger Waters with Zionist Propaganda 101

you liked that joke...thanks!

Didn't Chomsky call gate keeping, 'Manufacturing Consent'?
October 7, 2015 6:09 pm
Stern is another gatekeeper of Zionism. Agents like Stern are well paid so they can defend Israel when required. Another faux republican radio host/agent of Zion is Mark Levine, who surely gets very pouty when the criminal state is mentioned on his radio broadcast.
US won’t veto UN vote on settlements if Israel builds anew’ – Ilan Ben Zion and Raphael Ahren/The Times of Israel

Kind of wild over there, eh?
That sounds like insinuation - I don't read the comments or comment there. Although the Hudson interview could be a bit lengthy for you, the article is worth reading. Ron Unz wrote a few years back, the Myth of the American Meritocracy, which MW (true to form) gave the Jewish perspective on it. Ever read it - as it's an important piece of the meritocracy puzzle. Give it a whirl, expand your scope...

Traitor- There were a lot of traitor accusations when US senator Charles Shumer stabbed his own president in the back by siding with Israel this summer. The problem was that not enough mainstream pundits that called him out(!) on this, and thence it didn't have much impact. (it was interesting that DKos had a cartoon this summer of Chuck getting his marching orders from Israel - sort of like how they said JFK would get his orders from the pope in the 60's) Even HPost commenters were openly calling him a traitor because the stench of his betrayal was so fucking obvious. Added to traitor is the unsavory notion of 'parasitism'. I was reading this article about financial parasitism and it's worth reading as it can be applied to AIPAC and the Jewish lobbyists for Israel, because they are a parasite that only takes and offers nothing to the host except more problems. [Unless someone can please inform me what the benefits are of supporting Israel today, I'm all ears.] here's an excerpt: Killing the Host: How Financial Parasites and Debt Bondage Destroy the Global Economy
...But that’s not how biological parasites work in nature. Biological parasitism is more complex, and precisely for that reason it’s a better and more sophisticated metaphor for economics. The key is how a parasite takes over a host. It has enzymes that numb the host’s nervous system and brain. So if it stings or gets its claws into it, there’s a soporific anesthetic to block the host from realizing that it’s being taken over. Then the parasite sends enzymes into the brain. A parasite cannot take anything from the host unless it takes over the brain. The brain in modern economies is the government, the educational system, and the way that governments and societies make their economic policy models of how to behave. In nature, the parasite makes the host think that the free rider, the parasite, is its baby, part of its body, to convince the host actually to protect the parasite over itself. That’s how the financial sector has taken over the economy. Its lobbyists and academic advocates have persuaded governments and voters that they need to protect banks, and even need to bail them out when they become overly predatory and face collapse. Governments and politicians are persuaded to save banks instead of saving the economy, as if the economy can’t function without banks being left in private hands to do whatever they want, free of serious regulation and even from prosecution when they commit fraud. This means saving creditors – the One Percent – not the indebted 99 Percent.
