Why are most Jews unable and/or unwilling to acknowledge the wrong done to the Palestinians? Most Jews do not want to know about Zionism’s crimes. The question is – WHY don’t they want to know?

Our opponents call us “Jew haters.” That is a lie and a slander. BDS advocates equal rights for all and consistently opposes all forms of racism, including anti-Semitism. In fact, many progressive Jewish activists, intellectuals, students, feminists and others participate in and sometimes lead BDS campaigns in Western countries. The increasing impact of Israeli supporters of BDS has led the Knesset to pass a draconian anti-boycott law banning advocacy of any boycott against Israel or its complicit institutions.
There may not be a magic bullet to end the Zionist domination of the American political process, but in Chuck Hagel, we got a dud. I do not regret supporting him at the beginning, but I wish he had shown more fortitude as the process degenerated — admittedly a lot to ask, but then the position to which he was nominated cries out for someone like that, which it has not had for many years. Well, perhaps next time — if there is one — it’ll be a Marine in his place.
New York politicians are threatening to cut funding to Brooklyn College if the school hosts a forum Thursday night about the BDS movement. The council members’ threat is just one of several efforts by local lawmakers, from Congress on down, to pressure Brooklyn College to remove its sponsorship or even cancel the event. The school is vowing to proceed with the event.
Until and unless we eradicate injustice, we have no reason to know beauty, for all that we create is tainted by that injustice pretending all is well with our world. Truth does not exist if injustice surrounds us and we are silent in our complicity. Proclaiming moral virtue in a world awash in crimes against humanity is condoning the crimes unless we act to eradicate the crimes.
it is perfectly possible to be passionately anti-Zionist (anti Zionism’s colonial enterprise), and fiercely condemnatory of the policies of Zionism’s in-Israel leaders, without being in any way, shape or form anti-Semitic. An anti-Semite today is a truth-telling person Jews who support the Zionist state of Israel RIGHT OR WRONG not only dislike but want to silence.
Zionism was to be the cure for “anti-Semitism” and the savior of Jews; however it turned out to be the Jews’ greatest threat and nightmare. So much for God’s “Promised Land” to the Jews. If God himself gave Palestine to the Jews (of yester years, not those of today) wouldn’t every Jew immigrate to the Promised Land and fulfill and obey God’s command and promise?
Obviously not. The majority of Jews rejected God’s covenant and promise preferring the capitalistic success and power they have in western nations, none more so than in the Jewish compliant U.S.
In fact more Jews are leaving Israel than are entering it.
Hunting Nazi’s business has been slow for the rich Zionist Simon Wiesenthal Center, so a new scheme had to be developed … they created new enemies. Among those ‘cited’ was our esteemed associate Carlos Latuff.
Israel: It may well turn out that the victor of the elections, six weeks from now, will be Avigdor Lieberman, the man of the cold revenge. And that will be the beginning of a new chapter altogether.
By 1993 the Israel knew for certain that a Palestinian state could not be established in the West Bank. That is when they said, OK, we’ll begin negotiation.
The question is not simply the power of the Jewish Oligarchy but is a question for all humanity. How long will the Gentile world of 7 Billion remain silent?
They invaded and occupied our lands, they massacred millions of our people, they enslaved us, they stole the resources for their benefit, they imposed tyrannical puppet rulers upon us, they said they came to civilize us, save our souls by converting us to Christianity. And now they are on another crusade—a crusade to denigrate, demonize, and slander our faith and our most beloved and merciful of Prophets—Muhammad.
He exceeds the worst of Ariel Sharon and previous hardline leaders. He’s an embarrassment to democratic governance. He should have been kept out of New York instead of let in. He should be locked up for humanity’s sake. He deplores peace. He’s all take and no give. He calls diplomacy a four-letter word. He turns a blind eye to equity and justice. He’s contemptuous of human and civil rights. He maliciously calls Iran’s peaceful nuclear program an existential threat.
An Interview With Noam Chomsky: Everybody is already furious at Israel. Even in Europe, it is regarded as the most dangerous state in the world, and it is becoming a pariah state. People in the U.S. should be breaking through the media and general doctrinal barriers to come to know what is going on.
Has Al-Qaeda – defeated by the Arab revolutionaries who demanded dignity rather than a Bin Laden Caliphate across the Middle East – now decided to cash in on populist grievances to advance their Islamist cause?
As Israeli Jewish terrorist attacks on mosques in occupied Palestine are assuming a phenomenal frequency. Indeed, with the Israeli government and security establishment doing next to nothing to put an end to this wanton and unprovoked terror, a huge fire is being started in the region.
The settlers don’t give a damn about international opinion – no more than does al-Qaeda, to which they have an unsavory resemblance. Led “by fundamentalist religious leaders who do not recognize the state of Israel and its laws,” they are driven by religious fanaticism and have no respect for governments or their agents. It is their ideological conviction that all of Palestine (including, by the way, Jordan) must be Jewish as soon as possible.
This episode reveals yet again just how pernicious is this manipulative use of “anti-Semitism” to intimidate people out of questioning U.S. policy toward Israel. Part of the problem is that most liberal writers, bloggers and pundits – especially the non-Jewish ones – are petrified of getting anywhere near the word “Israel.”
Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews – Israelis must be aware that the price of their misconduct is paid not only by them but also Jews throughout the world.
Lawrence Davidson analyses the culture behind efforts by Zionist lobbyists in the United States to censor free debate of Zionism and Israel’s policies through pressure, blackmail and smearing the advocates of free speech as “anti-Semites” or “self-hating Jews”.
If the historical goal of the state of Israel is to provide the world’s Jews a secure national home, a place of refugee in a world of real or potential anti-Semitism, it seems to have failed. It has failed not because this writer says so, but because an increasing number of its own Jewish citizens say so.
Paul J. Balles explains why Zionist scaremongering and distorting of history, as manifested in the writing of Israel apologists such as the Washington Post’s Richard Cohen, only increases fear by Jews and disdain by others.
Clearly, Zionist opposition to morally-justifiable boycott – in service of its ethnocentric ideology – is nothing new. But as history has shown, boycotts can succeed despite libelous opposition and propaganda – it just takes time.
On Wednesday, November 10th Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu was in Washington DC for a meeting with Secretary of State Hilary Clinton. But Cantor got to Netanyahu first and, according to the Congressman’s boastful press release, he “stressed that the new Republican majority will serve as a check on the [Obama] Administration ….He [Cantor] made clear that the Republican majority understands the special relationship between Israel and the United States, and that the security of each nation is reliant upon the other.”
How do we translate this? Essentially what Cantor did was tell the leader of a foreign country that he will protect that country from the official policies of the President of the United States–the person charged by the Constitution to carry out the nation’s foreign policy.
Last week, 17 men were arrested in New York for defrauding Germany out of $42 million in payments to phony holocaust survivors. Tens of thousands of American Jews had filed for pensions from Germany claiming to be concentration camp survivors. All swore they had been in the camps, told stories about gas chambers, human skin lampshades and such but not a single one had been in a camp at all. The state of Israel claims to have, alive today, nearly one million holocaust survivors.
As many as 90% of these may well be, not only frauds but many could easily be former concentration camp guards themselves, far more likely than surviving death camps. What better place to hide than Israel?
The racist and colonialist characteristics of Zionism were quite evident since its inception. Stability and peace in the Middle East are unattainable without first deconstructing the settler-colonial attitude upon which Israel is founded.
If sincere, Israel’s liberal who support a two-state solution to “save Israel from itself” should start advising their friends to de-Zionise their institutions and laws. For without such a move the Israeli polity will continue to be nothing but a Herrenvolk democracy and an apartheid system. This is no recipe for peace. On the contrary, it is a cause for conflict.
Ever since an Israeli firm let the Christmas Day crotch bomber “slip through” security at Schiphol Airport without a passport, a few influential voices with close ties to Israel have been instrumental in making Yemen “the new buzzword”.
The US may be walking into a bit of a trap,” warns Gregory Johnsen, a Yemen expert and doctoral candidate at Princeton University’s Department of Near Eastern Studies. Israel must be very grateful indeed for this latest terror scare. If Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula did not exist, they might have to invent it.
To their eternal shame, Western churchmen seem to care little about the plight of their brothers and sisters in the Holy Land or the fate of the holy places where Christianity was born.
There are, of course, honourable exceptions. One such is the Archbishop of Wales, the Most Reverend Dr Barry Morgan, whose church has provided the Gazans with a mobile dental unit. Whereupon Mr McIlwaine launched into the familiar anti-Gaza, anti-Hamas rant we’re used to hearing from the pro-Israel lobby.
He seems desperate to divert attention from the mounting resentment around the world towards Israel. But his threadbare argument collapses straightaway because no distinction is made between criminal Israelis and Jews generally. The one remains carefully hidden behind the other.
Not content with such slander against innocent people indignant at the unconscionable brutality of the Israeli war machine, Murdoch chooses to slide silently by the horrific massacres inflicted on the people of Palestine during the Nakba, insisting that Israel suffered decades of “straightforward” military force by those attempting to “overrun Israel.” He should read the reality of those days as described by Dr. Ilan Pappe in his work, The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine. This was the beginning of the genocide against the Palestinians as recorded in The Plight of the Palestinians recently published by Palgrave Macmillan that continues to this day.
Police raided its offices, revealing a political spy operation. Files about thousands of Arab Americans and hundreds left-of-center organizations were pilfered. ADL conducted spy operations, infiltrating local law enforcement agencies, bribing police officers, and securing non-public information illegally. Its penchant for spying is now exposed, if not acknowledged, yet so far it’s escaped prosecution and harsh class action suit judgments by admitting no wrongdoing, and agreeing to remove improperly obtained documents from its files.

Balles* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz When Time Magazine carried an article on “Why Israel Doesn’t Care about Peace“, a whole coterie of American Zionist supporters reacted as if Time had become anti-Semitic.

By Lawrence Davidson* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz Iran’s president Ahmadinejad was at the United Nations on September 21, 2010 to address the Millennium Development Goals Summit.

By Jeff Gates* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz Hate is a harsh word. As the counterpoint to love, hate reigns supreme among those emotions that the faith traditions seek to expunge from the human heart. Hate we’re told is the face of evil seen in plumes of smoke and ash on 911. Yet hate also [...]
By Stephen Lendman* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz On August 25, Yale University ended a three day global anti-Semitism “crisis” conference promoting the notion that Israeli criticism is “anti-Semitic,” no matter how justified.
