Just imagine if the Palestinians killed 55 Israeli settlers in the Occupied Territories but since the JDF is the one doing the killing, no biggy. This is all driven by religion - Jewish, Muslim and Christian - that's a whole lot of crazy.
I am so upset about this I want to howl at the moon - but there isn't one tonight ! D.T is an ass. I don't know how Israel got so militantly hard faced I would have imagined that a set of people who were treated badly would have empathy for others in the same situation. I don't know where religion figures in all of this - and I am horrified at their treatment of the Chassidic jews . I just want some sense to arise.
It, in my view, is driven by what often passes for religion but is certainly a product of it. That is, fanaticism.
The 70 year long veneer over the fanatic Zionist state has finally worn so thin that even partisans are forced to see the reality with their 'lyin' eyes'. My awakening came years ago. It was bitter and embarrassing. It is the very same kind of embarrassment and inner humiliation that many supporters of Israel fear most; that and being labeled the dreaded 'anti-Semite' or self-hating Jew smear for having the audacity to question or criticize.
Political Zionism is in fact an enemy of Jews. Brutal, murderous behavior of fanatic Zionists in charge of the Israeli regime has resulted in reproach of Jews around the world who have nothing to do with Israel. They have given re-birth to instead of fighting a rise of anti-Jewish feeling.
We who get our information from news and entertainment media have been spoon-fed a false narrative; a huge myth regarding the advent of the criminal state that now occupies virtually all of Palestine. Israel conducts itself in ways that are the antithesis of every moral principle associated with Judaism. Yet they counterfeit themselves as the homeland of world Jewry!
More Jews live here in the USA by far, than in occupied Palestine. Next to the Zionist state, Iran has the largest Jewish population in the Middle East. Yet because of the big lie propagated by political Zionists one is never made aware of these and other facts that don't fit the phony scenario. Many of Israel's harshest critics and opposition figures are themselves Jewish journalists, historians, physicians, rabbis, politicians (British) and expatriated Jews born in Palestine.
Americans need desperately to learn the real history of the region if we are ever going to escape the yoke of public defamation to which we're harnessed by Zionist interests, preventing so many from speaking out. If we love humanity and love Jews, Zionism's secondary victims, we must speak out! We must not 'remain silent'.
Israel is not a democracy because the Palestinians who have been ethnically cleansed cannot return nor vote! Its democracy is the same as South African whites had - for the ethnically privileged. It's no accident that Mandela and the Irish are strong supporters of Palestinians. Africans and the Irish know what colonial racism - in this case Israel's - is like.
"anti-semitism" ::: an amazingly stupid phrase:
Semite: a member of any of the peoples who speak or spoke a Semitic language, including in particular the jews and arabs. ::
Those descending from the Semitic tribes, currently includealistinians, jordanians, iraqees, iranians,... DNA research has clarified the threads.
Being anti-semantic is stupid. Being anti-zionist is very reasonable.
I was listening to Chris Hayes podcast at work today and he and his guest were talking about the mideast and comparing it to the system of alliances that started WW1. You have Trump Israel Saudi Arabia and UAE on one side and Iran Syria Lebanon Hamas and Russia on the other. Really interesting and scary.
Oh oh. I see a few of those neo fascists here from the Conservative Atheist Group. I am so confused. They hate Israel & love the poor "Palestinians". But Trump supports Israel & not the "Palestinians". They support Trump because he is trying to do good things for the country & we should support him or be labeled as un-American & unpatriotic. Kutchner goes there & stirs up the hornets nest but Twump isn't involved. It is all Obamas fault because he & BIBI didn't get along & wouldn't support Bibi's hard line tho it is Gaza that always fires first. Iran fired first. Syria fired first. My head!!!!!! & I'm out of cannabis & refuse to buy black market. I'm going to bed.....alone. =0}
"Palestinians " are Semites. Palestinians have a country. It is called Jordan. 98% of Jordanians are "Palestinians". Israel is the only country there that changes governments by ballot. Israel is the only democracy in a region ruled by kings, sheiks, dictators. Now they aren't Moslem terrorists. Its the Israelis that are the problem by some peoples measure. The Moslem nations do not welcome "Palestinians" in their own nations. Israel has Israeli Arabs who value their citizenship tho they face discrimination as all minorities do in many nations. They are not the rioters. This outrage is fomented by Kutchner & the Donald. & BIBI. The Brits washed their hands of their colonies to get American help in WW2 as agreed. The opportunity to divide UK colonial Palestine to provide a country for the displaced masses, resulted in Jordan & Israel. Jordan IS "Palestine". Israel IS a democracy.
