US stands alone in Human Rights Council votes on Israel

UN Watch, 24 March 2010 The UN Human Rights Council has roundly condemned the State of Israel in resolutions tabled under the highly controversial agenda item 7, “Human Rights Situation in Palestine and Other Occupied Arab Territories.” Five resolutions have been tabled against Israel, amounting to the greatest number of condemnatory resolutions on a single country. The first resolution, “Human Rights in the Occupied Syrian Golan,” was adopted by a

ZOG’s committment to genocide in Palestine: “unwavering, unbreakable, unshakable”

Yesterday I posted a recent AIPAC statement in which the Israel Lobby in essence demanded that the Obama administration desist from its complaints about the recent humiliation of VP Biden in Israel. Sure enough, the entire US ruling class immediately jumped to attention. Take, for example, the statements of US Congress members which immediately issued statement of loyalty to the Israel Lobby. As for the Executive Branch – we all

Great Game playoff: Russia/Turkey vs Palestine/Israel

In Russia, Turkey and the Great Game: Changing teams the new line-up of the players in the Great Game was set out. Here, Eric Walberg considers the implications for the Middle East. A vital playing field in today’s Great Game is Palestine/Israel, where again there is a tentative meeting of political minds between Russia and Turkey. In defiance of the US and much of Europe, both endorsed the Goldstone report

Netanyahu, Hegel and the Jewish Spirit

by Gilad Atzmon “Spirit does not toss itself about in the external play of chance occurrences; on the contrary, it is that which determines history absolutely, and it stands firm against the chance occurrences which it dominates and exploits for its own purpose”. (Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel 1770 – 1831) PM Netanyahu was quoted by the Israeli Ynet last week saying that the “whole of Israel would be surrounded by

Israeli settlers threaten ‘Holocaust’ in occupied Palestine

The BBC reports this morning that Jewish settlers are suspected of being behind an attack on a mosque in the north of the occupied West Bank. Attackers set fire to bookshelves and a large area of carpet in the mosque, and sprayed graffiti in Hebrew on a wall (…) Israeli human rights groups have accused the police and army of running inadequate investigations into such incidents. One group reported that

Israel’s Right To Exist?

By Alan Hart via “Information Clearing House” On Monday 12 October, Prime Minister Netanyahu opened the Knesset’s winter session by blasting the Goldstone Report that accuses Israel of committing war crimes and vowing that he would never allow Israelis be tried for them. But that was not his main message. It was an appeal, delivered I thought with a measure of desperation, to the “Palestinian leadership”, presumably the leadership of

Amazing behind the scenes look at the crazies running Israel

I just found this video on YouTube. Check it out: Now, the guy speaking is Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson aka “the Rebbe”, one of the most influential rabbis among the Hassidim/Haredim Orthodox Jews i.e, the folks who are getting more and more power and influence in Israel. So strong is the cult of this “rebbe” that many of his followers actually consider him to be God. To get a sense

Israel’s Judaization policy hits church buildings

Press TV reports: Israeli authorities have threatened to demolish 500 buildings owned by the churches in the Old City of Jerusalem (al-Quds), church officials say. The Greek Orthodox and Catholic churches in Jerusalem (al-Quds) released a joint statement on Saturday complaining that Israeli forces have recently stepped up demolitions in accordance with the Municipality’s E1 plan for the city. It further said that with this articulate detailed plan, the Israeli

Netanyahu’s overt racism

I just saw this quote from Bibi’s latest speech: Any demand to resettle refugees within Israel undermines Israel as a state for the Jewish people He is absolutely right. And denying the right of return of those illegally displaced is, in itself, a form of Jewish racial supremacy, in particular when combined with the equally racist right of “return” for any and all Jews worldwide (nevermind that they never lived

Wow! Just listen to these crazies

A good friend of mine just sent me this video: Listening to these crackpots made me wonder if the pro-Apartheid South Africans were ever that totally nuts. From my recollection of these years, the South African racists were not nearly as gone finishing as the Ziocrazies on this video. And Blacks sure were treated much better in Apartheid South African and Palestinians are in the “Jewish state”. I really wonder,

The Three-Legged Monster

by Gilad Atzmon for Paletine Think Tank Unlike her cosmopolitan brothers and sisters who spread Zionism and tribal racism using a liberal and progressive disguise, Melanie Philips is open about it all. The other day she defined what Zionism is in a very clear manner: “Zionism,” writes Philips, “is simply the movement for the self-determination of the Jewish people. And its significance is greater than any other movement of national

Sadly, Israel is no longer democratic (assuming it ever was!)

by Shulamit Aloni for Ha’aretz: Maj. Gen. Amos Yadlin and philosopher Asa Kasher, two respected men around here, published an article entitled: “A just war of a democratic state,” (Haaretz, April 24, Hebrew). A remark about the first part: There are wars that are necessary for self-defense or to fight injustice and evil. But the expression “just” is problematic when speaking of war itself – which involves killing and destruction

Israel furious over EU discontent with Bibi

Press TV reports: Israel has threatened to block the Middle East peace process over the European Union’s harsh criticism of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. An Israeli Foreign Ministry official said on Thursday that Israel strongly protested at the criticism by EU ministers and senior officials about Israel’s new government, warning that the Netanyahu’s largely right-wing cabinet will forgo the Mideast peace process as long as the hawkish administration is under

By Haitham Sabbah for Palestine Think Tank Same old story, new president: U.S. President Barack Obama will not cut the billions of dollars in military aid promised to Israel, a senior U.S. administration official said Wednesday. The $30 billion in aid promised to Israel over the next decade will not be harmed by the world financial crisis, the official told Israel Radio. He spoke on condition of anonymity. The U.S.

Gilad Atzmon – Lexicon of Resistance

by Gilad Atzmon for Palestine Think Tank The following is an attempt to present my own personal dictionary of what seems to be the most charged terminology and concepts attached to the Palestinian solidarity and anti-war discourse. Palestine– a piece of land on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. For many years Palestine was the home of the Palestinian people: Muslims, Christians and Jews who lived in peace and

The Case Against Israel’s “Right to Exist”

by Roger Tucker An Open Letter to Representative David Price (D) 4th District, NC As you know, Mr. Price, I was invited to join a group of activists who met with you Monday morning to urge you to take action regarding the siege of Gaza, the Occupation and American support for Israel. I declined to attend because my particular focus is on One State advocacy, and you have made it
