  1. This situation would not exist if Israel had followed through with driving the Arabs out of the region after the Six Day War. Now the Antisemitic UN condemns Israel for everything. At this point, I think it is quite obvious that no matter what the Jewish state does, it will be condemned. In an ideal world, granting the Arabs a Palestinian statehood would be an ideal solution, but I cannot help but to think the Arabs would still call for the destruction of Israel.
  2. By the way, in case it was missed, in a Major Free Speech Victory, a Federal Court Strikes Down a Law that Punishes Supporters of Israel Boycott A FEDERAL JUDGE on Tuesday ruled that a Kansas law designed to punish people who boycott Israel is an unconstitutional denial of free speech. The ruling is a significant victory for free speech rights because the global campaign to criminalize, or otherwise legally outlaw, the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement has been spreading rapidly in numerous political and academic centers in the U.S. This judicial decision definitively dec
  3. BBC: Jersusalem is Israel's capital I commented on some thread last night of someone from the U.S. asking if Trump was all that bad for them. I tried to relate without prejudice. I assumed that much of the world's problems in communication/miscommunication deal with today's technology. However, today this announcement appears as though he may be setting up for some suicidal 'fuck you' before he possibly gets impeached. ?? I'm a bit surprised no one else here even mentioned it yet. What do you guys think?
  4. Reportedly, four Israeli soldiers are injured by an alleged explosive. In response, two Palestinians are killed in a tank shelling. Israel also carries out 18 air attacks (CBC Radio 1) On the matter of proportionality, Israel appears to surpass the Nazis who aimed for ten dead for one of their own. Is this not almost as sickening as the West's obsequiousness toward Israel?
  5. While Israel and its mouthpieces try to distract the big elephant in the room, by repeating ridiculous distracting arguments like: "They will not accept Israel as a Jewish State." - like anyone is obligated to do so - we are now decades into the Israeli occupation. The realization of a Palestinian State continues to move further away. Especially with the always increasing illegal settlers in the Palestinian territory, which are over 620,000 now. Despite the song and dance to the international community, Likud's official platform has been to never allow a Palestinian State and Netanyahu,
  6. It's not a surprise that criticism of Israel and Zionism receives so much resistance. This is how it has always been. Whether it's in politics (see politicians who have lost their jobs), to the media (see media personal who have lost their jobs) and now we're seeing it here, on the internet, which is the newest platform for people to share their ideas. Usually, any debate on the problems with Israel and Zionism is met with empty screams of anti-semitism and other personal attacks. There is always an urgency to shut down the debate. On this forum, there are three posts that have been locked du
  7. Israel's toxic policies and deteriorating morality have reached the point where even current and former Israeli leaders are sharing their harsh criticism of where Israel is today. A day after Ya'alon resigned as defense minister and replaced with Lieberman, Ehud Barak made the following comments: 'there are no serious leaders left in the world who believe the Israeli government.' and Israel has been "infected by the seeds of fascism," And two weeks ago, Israel's military chief likened 'Revolting Trends' in Israeli Society to pre-Holocaust Germany: "If there's something that frightens
  8. Israel supports Al Qaeda, a terrorist organization, which was behind the 9/11 attack and several other attacks against the U.S. and other countries around the world. Treating their fighters is just one of the reports that is coming out in regards to their support. Other reports indicate that they are sharing information and intelligence with them. I wonder how Americans would feel if they knew that their ally is supporting Al Qaeda. Interview with the ex. Mossad chief
  9. Amnesty International asks four simple questions from war criminal Benjamin Netanyahu as he comes to Washington DC to encourage Americans to sacrifice their sons and daughters yet again for the cause of Zionist militarism: 1. Why is Israel taking Palestinian land? 2. Why is Israel undermining Gaza reconstruction? 3. Why is Israel arresting nonviolent Palestinian protesters? 4. Why does Israel oppose international accountability? Link
  10. Sodastream will be closing down its controversial factory, located in an illegal settlement in the West Bank. “SodaStream’s announcement … shows that the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement is increasingly capable of holding corporate criminals to account for their participation in Israeli apartheid and colonialism,” said Rafeef Ziadah, a spokesperson. “[The] BDS campaign pressure has forced retailers across Europe and North America to drop SodaStream, and the company’s share price has tumbled in recent months as our movement has caused increasing reputational damage to the Sod
  11. Sometimes frustrated politicians can get out of the salesman character and offer sobering and truthful assessment of issues. This is exactly what happened the other day when John Kerry blamed Israel for the problems with the peace process. Kerry walked committee members through the steps that had led to last week’s crisis in the talks – beginning with a decision by Israel to delay a promised release of 26 Palestinian prisoners who had been involved in past terrorist attacks, unless the negotiations continued beyond the April 29 end-date. Both sides worked toward a deal to make that happen, K
  12. I guess they weren't willing to spread it for free. In a campaign to improve its image abroad, the Israeli government plans to provide scholarships to hundreds of students at its seven universities in exchange for their making pro-Israel Facebook posts and tweets to foreign audiences. Link
  13. Baird breaks 46 years of Canadian and Western policy and decides to meet Israeli officials in the, internationally recognized, occupied East Jerusalem, further embarrassing Canada. Is Baird's action, the actions of a real diplomat? How far is this government willing to go in ruining Canada's image as a supporter of international law and human rights? When Foreign Minister John Baird crossed the Green Line this week to meet with Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni in the mostly Arab sector of east Jerusalem, he broke with 46 years of Canadian government and Western policy. But was it by acc
  14. Despite the great resistance by the ultra-nationalistic zionists, who have battled in every way possible to prevent the recognition of a real and legitimate Palestinian State, slowly but surely, things are changing. Google has now recognized the state of Palestine. Google is de facto recognizing a state of Palestine - at least on its local home page in the Palestinian territories. Google spokesman Nathan Tyler said Friday "We're changing the name 'Palestinian territories' to 'Palestine' across our products." He said Google consults with a number of sources and authorities when naming countr
  15. On March 6th it was reported that “Israeli forces have sprayed Palestinian homes in the village of Nabi Saleh with Skunk as a punishment for organizing weekly protests against the Apartheid Wall built on occupied land. Human rights watchdog B’Tselem published a showing Israel’s armoured tanker trucks fitted with “water canons” [spraying] the foul fluid.” It is reported that the Israeli forces also targeted all the houses of the village with the liquid formula. A B'Tselem report pointed out the effects of this 'Skunk' spray included causing environmental damage. B'Tselem has reported tha
  16. Another example of Israel's apartheid policy: Since 1994, when settler Baruch Goldstein massacred Moslem worshipers in the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the Israeli military has employed a "policy of separation" in Hebron. This is implemented primarily through severe restrictions on Palestinian movement in downtown Hebron, where most Israeli settlement outposts are located. Lately the military has further entrenched this policy by building a fence dividing a central street in half and only allowing Jews to use the paved side of the street while Palestinians must use a rough, unpaved passage.
  17. This image is breaking my heart. I am the father of a newborn child and I am so incredibly fortunate to be here. Why do I deserve to be here while a father or a mother has to go through this. We need to stop supporting Israel's aggression and start supporting justice and human rights. A Palestinian man from Al Zeitoun holding his one-year-old son, Omar Jihad Mashrawi, who died from his injuries, at Al Shifa Hospital, Gaza City, November 14, 2012.

  18. A third intifada is feared after several recent incidents. The incidents include Jewish settler violence, including shots fired, olive trees burnt and Palestinian villagers beaten. This was capped with a Palestinian dying after being tortured in the hands of Shin Bet, who denies the charges. Arafat Jaradat, a 29-year-old Palestinian detainee, died at the Shin Bet said that Jaradat was arrested last week on suspicion he hurled stones at an Israeli civilian during Operation. A statement issued by the Pillar of Defense. On Saturday, he fell ill and medics were unable to save him. Police launch
  19. was there really a surprise? when you have a nation that came to be through ethnic cleansing what do you expect? the following information is a reason why canadians and americans cannot identify with zionism. link Most of the Jewish public in Israel supports the establishment of an apartheid regime in Israel if it formally annexes the West Bank. A majority also explicitly favors discrimination against the state's Arab citizens, a survey shows. The majority of the Jewish public, 59 percent, wants preference for Jews over Arabs in admission to jobs in government ministries. Almost half the
