Historical quotes: Ben-Gurion’s willingness to trade off dead Jewish children for the Jewish state of Israel

March 7, 2011

We are accustomed to hearing about how Israel as an ethnically exclusivist state was necessary to protect the Jews after the Holocaust. For most Israelis, this assertion has taken on almost axiomatic status. So it’s interesting to note that many of the early Zionist leaders, including the relentlessly mythologized David Ben-Gurion, Zionist leader and first […]

Israeli ‘satire’ packs dozens of racist, dehumanizing, Orientalist caricatures into one obscene skit

February 27, 2011

File this under the bat-shit crazy category of racism.  Latma TV, the same fundamentalist right-wing media group (founded by luminaries such as the neuron-challenged Caroline Glick) that brought us the “We Con the World” parody after the flotilla massacre, now publishes a truly offensive skit mocking the Arab democracy revolutions. It would have been literally […]

Hillel president and CEO Firestone provides a perfect argument for cultural boycott

February 25, 2011

I can appreciate that arguments for cultural boycott might require a little more intellectual sophistication and awareness than, say, being (verbally) against Jewish-only colonies on stolen land. Every self-identified Jewish or Israeli “liberal” loves to blame the settlers for everything (when they aren’t trying to blame Hamas), but the notion of boycotting cultural icons seems […]

Historical snapshot into Jewish terrorism: The bombing of the S.S. Patria

February 21, 2011

Not only do Israelis hold intensely hypocritical attitudes toward Palestinian nonviolence, as I highlighted in my last post, but they also hold opinions about violent Palestinian resistance that are characterized by a kind of phony piousness.  Israelis simply disallow Palestinians the same right to struggle for a national home that they afforded themselves. Here is […]

Israel’s fanatical antipathy to nonviolent Palestinian resistance

February 19, 2011

The massive, organized, hysterical opposition by Israelis and their lobbyists to the UN Security Council Resolution today, which aimed to condemn settlements (with Hillary Clinton’s own recent language about them) makes the whole game crystal clear.  The real issue Israelis have is not that some Palestinian resistance fighters use violence (and often illegal, terrorizing violence […]

Aluf Benn’s violence-serving narcissism is stereotypical of Israelis

January 19, 2011

In an op-ed today, Aluf Benn argues that Israel cannot stop Palestinian independence except through the “terrible” options of bombing Iran, calling early elections (like this is equivalently “terrible”), or taking retaliatory action against the Palestinian Authority for daring to seek international support for a state.  “Terrible” is the one adjective Benn manages to produce […]

American tax-exempt organizations provide direct funding to Israeli army

January 17, 2011

Elsewhere on this blog I have highlighted how tax-exempt donations to US organizations are used to fund overt racism and racist violence, genocidal rabbis, Jewish terrorists, and illegal Jewish-only colonies on Palestinian land.  So it really shouldn’t come as a surprise that US charity money also goes directly to the Israeli army, and yet I […]

Israel accelerates rate of killing Palestinians in early 2011

January 10, 2011

Last October, the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem published a report indicating that Israel murdered, on average, one Palestinian every other day between 2006 and 2009, excluding the attack on Gaza known as Cast Lead that killed an additional 1,400 people (note that including Cast Lead brings the total to an average of around 1.5 […]

Somebody needs to remind FM Lieberman about Congresswoman Giffords and 19 other casualties

January 10, 2011

Understanding nothing and learning nothing, FM Lieberman and his buddies stoke the fires of political violence with their fascist rhetoric designed to eliminate political opposition. FM Evet Lieberman: “It is the public’s right to know, these [Israeli human rights] organizations are terror supporters whose only goal is to weaken the IDF.” MK Ben-Ari: Leftist organizations […]

Humanitarian strangulation of Gaza with no possible security rationale

January 10, 2011

A recently released Wikileaks cable confirmed something the world already knew: Israel’s policy of de-developing Gaza is deliberate and not based on any possible security rationale. Israeli officials have confirmed to Embassy officials on multiple occasions that they intend to keep the Gazan economy functioning at the lowest level possible consistent with avoiding a humanitarian […]
