Israel- Should a nation of land thieves really be considered as being somehow a democracy?

Robert Fantina asks this question and answers it well in his excellent commentary Stolen Land- Israel, Settlements and Democracy The green on the maps above represent the original land that Palestinians had for their people back in 1946, now being rapidly stolen away by others up to the year 2000, on the maps, and continuing into the present...

West Bank purge of settlement goods: boycotting your own pantry hurts who?

The Palestinian Authority's issuing stickers to West Bank houses who've destroyed their goods from Israeli settlements reminds me of wingnut hate-mite Michelle Malkin in 2007 instructing her viewers to scour their homes for products to "boycott." The technique brims with spirit, but misses the point of bringing economic pressure to bear. Foregoing what you've already paid for is to boycott what's yours. How convenient for Fatah to put the burden on Palestinians themselves, meanwhile endorsing no interruption of trade with Israel. IE's Ali Abunimah suggests Mahmoud Abbas aims to undermine the BDS campaign. Israel is certainly pleased to publicize the settlement businesses placed in jeopardy, as well as divert international energy from the spreading BDS movement.

Don’t buy Israeli Apartheid

Interesting counterpoint in Ha'aretz this morning about the Goldstone Report on the recent war crimes committed in Gaza, where the UN commission found grounds to investigate both Hamas and Israel for violations.   Hamas rejects the charges based on population's right to resist illegal occupation. The Israeli administration was indignant with a more complicated rationale. In the face of having inflicted 100 times more casualties, most of them civilian, Amira Hass wrote about The one thing worse than denying the Gaza report, which is to justify the crimes. Ari Shavit took a further tack, arguing that the UN must hold Obama to same standard as Israel. My favorite analysis of the moral predicament Israel finds itself rationalizing, is by Jihad el-Khazen.

In Israeli Apartheid, you and I are black

Sorta-leftist websites are touting use-to-be-leftist Uri Avnery's weekend article in Ma'an called "Tutu's Prayer." Where, the founder of Israel's Gush Shalom (touted as "fairly far left" as opposed to grandfather- clause'd phony) argues against the BDS boycott of Israel and against comparisons to South African apartheid. And where, Avnery shows himself blind to his own Judeo-centrism. Rejecting the term apartheid, Avnery writes: "It seems that the blacks in South Africa are very different from the Israelis--" 8576

The American Caterpillar stormtroopers

Here come the stormtroopers with their American made caterpillar. Jewish Human Rights Activist Ezra Nawi now tries to stop this nasty American bug! Ezra then goes to jail as the stormtrooper gang has a jolly good time.   Doesn't all this remind you of the American fun and games crew over at Abu Ghraib? See it and weep, Kids.

Who said Israel is an Apartheid State?

"Israel, like South Africa, is an apartheid state." ...Who said this? The ANSWER   Further Hendrik Frensch Verwoerd, the Architect of Apartheid, said "...a colonial racist mentality which rationalised the genocide of the indigenous peoples of the Americas and Australasia, in Africa from Namibia to the Congo and elsewhere, most clearly has its parallels in Palestine." 7339

Israel as Old South USA- No Nigger Arabs need apply here

In Jonathan Cook's The "Hebrew Labor" Principle Lives On, one gets a true picture of the Jewish State as Old South USA. We often hear in Zionist posts to our blog that, 'Our Arabs get treated better than they do in the Arab countries themselves', but it's just another one of their lies. Who would want to be anything other than Jewish in a theological dictatorship like present day Israel? 7297

Israel needs a new ‘security fence’ to protect women from former President Slick Moshe

Moshe Katsav was the Israeli political architect of that fixture of Apartheid Jewish State Israel, the so-called 'security fence', though it now seems that Jewish women have long needed a security fence to keep themselves safe from Slick Moshe! Ex-Israel head faces rape charge. ...Shame, too, on the big bad Palestinian grafitti artist for defacing that nice Israeli wall that Slick Moshe constructed. Bad 'anti-semite,' Bad Boy!

A look at Life under Jewish Apartheid

In his book Israeli Palestinians: the Unwanted Who Stayed, Jonathan Cook paints a picture which reminds me in some ways of the Deep South in the late Fifties and early Sixties which I vaguely experienced as a young kid. But it differs in major factors, too. Maybe a better comparison would be that the Israeli Palestinians are in the same situation as the Cherokee Nation when the White Settlers started invading their lands. 4716
