Polls show they favor defense and settlement construction cuts. Netanyahu prioritizes increasing them. He dismisses public sentiment out of hand. He’s favored to remain prime minister anyway. Israelis will have themselves to blame. They’ll have to explain why they voted the wrong way. They repeat the same mistakes and expect change. They’re stuck in the rut they themselves dug. Nothing post-election looks promising.

Who would imagine that Israeli Jews could be so intimidated by the innocuous Christmas tree? Far from “swallowing up” the historic Palestinian city of Nazareth, “Upper Nazareth is a Jewish town and all its symbols are Jewish,” Shimon Gapso, the mayor of Upper Nazareth said. “As long as I hold office, no non-Jewish symbol will be presented in the city.”
As the ANC Votes to Support BDS, a New Film – Roadmap to Apartheid – Compares Life in Palestine to Apartheid South Africa
As the African National Congress voted Thursday to support the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel known as BDS, declaring it was “unapologetic in its view that the Palestinians are the victims and the oppressed in the conflict with Israel,” we look at a new film that examines the apartheid analogy commonly used to describe the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “Roadmap to Apartheid.”
Israelis are offended by describing Israel as an apartheid state. What we should be offended by is the actual policies they employs against Palestinians.
The way forward in Palestine and Israel is not an ethnocracy that favours Jews or a two-state solution that dispossesses millions of Palestinians, but one state with dignity and equality for all.
Israel has long practiced a policy of nuclear ambiguity. No one’s fooled, however. With Israeli Apartheid a similar policy of Apartheid Ambiguity is in place.
Paul J. Balles considers the mentality of Israelis who openly rejoiced at the death of nine Palestinian kindergarten children and one adult in a bus accident in February.
Israeli Jewish hate rally against Africans in Tel Aviv caught on video as Haaretz deletes article about it
Rally against Sudanese refugees in Tel Aviv, calling to “restrict their movement” and set up concentration camps.
Israeli Jewish hate rally against Africans in Tel Aviv was caught on video as Haaretz deletes article about it.
The recent finding of the Russell Tribunal on Palestine (RToP) that the state of Israel is guilty of the crime of apartheid in relation to the Palestine people should be taken with the utmost seriousness by all those who affirm human solidarity and care about making visible the long ordeal of a suffering and vulnerable people. The finding is conspicuously ignored by Israel and the United States, as well as by most media and by the United Nations.
Pat Robertson once again spoke out against American Muslims, singling out the construction of mosques and the purported threat of creeping Sharia law. Robertson likened critics of Muslims to opponents of Nazis and rejected claims that his opposition to rights for Muslims is bigotry, asking, “I wonder what were people who opposed the Nazis, were they bigots?”
This brief is based on Maj. Jason Orlich’s Extensive Research, Islamic texts, history, and lessons learned at JTF Guantanamo. “Yahweh is Good, Allah is Bad”.
Having been tortured, Rudolf Höss, who was the commander of Auschwitz from 1940 to 1943, almost certainly lied to save the lives of his wife and children. Even if torture and duress cannot not be proven, the overwhelming reason for recognizing the utter falsity of the Höss confession is that the gassing method he described was not scientifically plausible.
Anti-Muslim Bigotry – in the United States is getting out of hand. Our country is sick and we need to understand the source of this sickness and do something about it. Islamphobia is being actively supported by local, state and federal governments and law enforcement. Anti-Muslim hatemongers routinely train local, state and federal officials to hate Islam and Muslims and it looks like they get good money for it. I tell you, I am in the wrong business, but I digress.
Jews must not rent homes to “gentiles”. That was the religious decree issued this week by at least 50 of Israel’s leading rabbis, many of them employed by the state as municipal religious leaders. Jews should first warn, then “ostracize” fellow Jews who fail to heed the directive, the rabbis declared.
The decree is the latest in a wave of racist pronouncements from some of Israel’s most influential rabbis.
New research by the Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies indicates that Jewish settlement in Sheikh Jarrah is against Israel’s interests and has the potential to harm future Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
Jewish settlement in the heart of Arab neighborhoods in East Jerusalem has the potential to threaten the advancement of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, according to a new report published by The Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies.
In the past few weeks, Safed – one of Judaism’s four holy cities – has been making headlines of a very different kind as “the most racist city in Israel”. The unflattering, and hotly contested, epithet follows an edict from Safed’s senior rabbis ordering residents not to sell or rent homes to “non-Jews” – a reference to the country’s Palestinian Arab citizens, who comprise a fifth of Israel’s population.
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, spiritual mentor of the religious fundamentalist party, Shas, which represents Middle Eastern Jews, reportedly said during a Sabbath homily earlier this week that “Non-Jews were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world-only to serve the People of Israel. They need to die, but God will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money.”
How to Kill Goyim and Influence People: Israeli Rabbis Defend Book’s Shocking Religious Defense of Killing Non-Jews (with Video)
By Max Blumenthal* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz A rabbinical guidebook for killing non-Jews has sparked an uproar in Israel and exposed the power a bunch of genocidal theocrats wield over the government. When I went into the Jewish religious book emporium, Pomeranz, in central Jerusalem to inquire about the availability of a book called [...]
By James Petras* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz Introduction Any serious effort to understand the extraordinary influence of the Zionist power configuration over US foreign policy must examine the presence of key operatives in strategic positions in the government and the activities of local Zionist organizations affiliated with mainstream Jewish organizations and religious orders.

Israeli female soldier smiles for camera and posts images of blindfold Palestinian prisoners on Facebook, from ‘best time of my life’
Photographs uploaded by Israeli soldier, Eden Abergil (meet her on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1036677802 ) and labeled “IDF – the best time of my life” show her smiling next to Palestinian prisoners with their hands bound and their eyes covered. “That looks really sexy for you,” says a comment posted by one of Abergil’s friends on the [...]
By Lawrence Davidson* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz The Bedouin village of al-Arakib On 26 July 2010 Israeli police armed with tear gas, a water canon and two helicopters forced the 200 Bedouin residents of the southern Israeli village of al-Arakib out of their homes.

By Jeff Gates* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz Americans can now see the light at the end of a long dark tunnel-if only they will look.

By Jonathan Cook * | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz Two Palestinian brothers with Israeli citizenship have won 8,000 US dollars in damages from Israel’s national carrier, El Al, after a court found that their treatment by the company’s security staff at a New York airport had been “abusive and unnecessary.” Abdel Wahab and Abdel Aziz [...]
By James Petras* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz “The Government of Israel has insulted the Vice President of the United States, and spat on the face of the President… they wiped the spit of their faces and smiled politely… as the saying goes: when you spit in the face of a weakling, he pretends that [...]
By Anait Brutian* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz “Deep down, I believe that a little anti-Semitism is a good thing for the Jews – reminds them who they are … Anti-Semitism means oppressing Jews even more than they deserve” (New York Times Magazine, February 12, 1995 p. 65).

By Dr. Alan Sabrosky* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz I cannot speak for the situation elsewhere, but in the US, I doubt if there is a another definable group that equals or surpasses Jews in their achievements in so many different fields, their support for civil liberties and civil rights, and their philanthropy or general [...]
By Anthony Lawson* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz There can be absolutely no doubt that Israel has created an inhuman, illegal and utterly disgraceful Apartheid state, and the international community will never be able to excuse itself if it takes no action against this blatant, ongoing and in-plain-sight crime against humanity. Please join the millions [...]
By Jeff Gates* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz Several of us among the incurably curious asked ourselves a simple question: what is anti-Semitism? The fact that it must be written with a capital “S” says a lot. Then we realized it also morphs. To that feature I can attest. In November 2002, I met a [...]
By Alan Hart* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz There are two definitions of anti-Semitism in its Jewish context. One was born in real history and represents a truth. The other is part and parcel of Zionist mythology and was invented for the purpose of blackmailing non-Jewish Europeans and North Americans into refraining from criticising Israel [...]
By William A. Cook* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz As an American living under Bush’s Military Commission’s Act, I feel a bit unnerved when charged with “allegations” of hate crimes issued by Canada’s Council on Human Rights, “allegations” made by an unidentified group against the editors of “Peace, Earth and Justice,” (PEJ Internet publications), and [...]
By Maidhc Ó Cathail* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz Although Zionism typically represents itself as the solution to anti-Semitism, the truth is less flattering. In fact, hostility toward Jews is indispensable to the cause of Jewish nationalism. If anti-Semitism didn’t exist, Zionists would have to invent it. And in many cases that is precisely what [...]
By Dr. Alan Sabrosky* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu once remarked to a Likud gathering that “Israel is not like other countries.” Oddly enough for him, that time he was telling the truth, and nowhere is that more evident than with Jewish nationalism, whether or not one pins the “Zionist” [...]
The Sequel to the Video YouTube Censored: Max Blumenthal and Jesse Rosenfeld interview young Tel Aviv residents about Iran, Obama and right-wing laws limiting the speech rights of their Palestinian-Israeli neighbors.
