Israel Bash-Fest Comes to Washington

sumA press release published by Reuters has announced that America’s first National Summit to Reassess the U.S.-Israel “Special Relationship” will be held on March 7 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. In reality, the conference will be little more than an Israeli bash-fest. It is being organized by a host of virulently anti-Israel entities, including the Council for the National Interest Foundation (CNIF), If Americans Knew (IAK), the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep), and the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA). The unifying feature of these organizations is their obsession with the so-called U.S. “Israel Lobby” that allegedly manipulates America into going to war and is responsible for the deaths of Americans and Palestinians, among other smears. “Research indicates the U.S.-Israel ‘special relationship’ is a major factor in foreign hostility towards Americans,” states the press release.

Right off the bat, the organizers reveal a tenuous relationship with the truth. “U.S. financial, military, and diplomatic support for Israel … now dwarfs annual American foreign assistance to all other nations,” the organizers contend.

Not exactly. In 2012, Israel received $3.075 billion in financial aid from the United States, more than any other nation in the world. However, the next four nations on the list, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, and Iraq are all countries with Muslim-dominant populations. They received a combined total of $6.97 billion in U.S. assistance, more than double the Israeli total. In projected aid for 2014, Iraq drops to 7th on the list, while Nigeria with a population of 75.7 million, of which 47.9 percent are Muslims, moves up to fifth. The more than 2-1 ratio in aid remains constant.

Another constant with regard to the conference is the reality that the organizers are little more than anti-Israel apologists for the Palestinian cause.

CNIF, which counted as one of its board members convicted terrorism funder Abdurahman Alamoudi, claims that it “advocates for Middle East policies that serve the national interest; that represent the highest values of our founders and our citizens; and that work to sustain a nation of honor, decency, security and prosperity.” Yet on the first page of its website it insists that the “greatest danger facing Americans today” is our “highly unusual relationship with Israel.” It is a relationship that has ostensibly “diminished our moral standing in the world, lessened our domestic freedoms, and exposed us to unnecessary and growing peril” and one that a “majority of Americans oppose.”

That is also a lie. A Gallup poll taken last March reveals that Americans support Israel over the Palestinians by a margin of 64 percent to 12 percent, matching an all-time high. Seventy-four percent say Israel can be counted on as a strong U.S. ally.

In recent years, CNIF has sent delegations to the Middle East to meet with U.S.-designated terror groups Hezbollah and Hamas. It has run several anti-Israel ads in major national newspapers condemning Israeli “occupation” of Palestine, and its “apartheid polices.” It blames Israel for getting the United States into war with Iraq and for trying to push us into war with Iran. While Islamic terror is scrupulously ignored, CNIF accuses the Jewish State of “metastasiz[ing] terror around the world,” and for “acts of aggression, provocation, and massive retaliation” against neighboring Arab states.

IAK claims it is is “an independent research and information-dissemination institute with particular focus on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, U.S. foreign policy regarding the Middle East, and media coverage of this issue.” On its website it contends the American media systemically misinforms, or keeps the public uninformed, about what is really happening in the West Bank and Gaza. That point of view is based largely on the personal experiences of Alison Weir’s “independent travels” through the region in 2001, and the “dozens of books” she has read on the topic. According to Weir (not to be confused with the British historian and author Alison Weir), charges of anti-Semitism made against her are an attempt to divert attention from the “facts” she presents to the public.

IAK’s main agenda is to lend support to those they deem have been unfairly attacked by the pro-Israel establishment in the U.S. Chief among its defendants was the late White House press correspondent Helen Thomas, following Thomas’s statement that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and go back to “Germany, Poland, America, and everywhere else.” IAK considered Thomas’s statement to be reasonable because Jews are “settlers” in the region, and the “Nazi holocaust ended well over half a century ago.” The IAK also continues to promote the now-debunked conspiracy theory that Israeli forces intentionally attacked the U.S.S. Liberty during the Six-Day War in 1967, and the “murder” of peace activist Rachel Corrie who was unintentionally killed by a bulldozer while she blocked the demolition of terrorist tunnels in Gaza. Both incidents are cited as examples of Israeli “brutality.”

IMrep is “a Washington-DC based nonprofit researching U.S. Middle East policy formulation and how warranted law enforcement and civil action can improve outcomes.” In reality its main agenda is to provide a series of “news” releases designed to ramp up anti-Israeli sentiment among the American public. They include such topics as the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) “rushed campaign to insert Stanley Fischer straight from his position leading Israel’s central bank into the number two spot at the Federal Reserve,” how the Israel lobby will undermine the Obama administration’s deal with Iran, and an FBI investigation of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for espionage. One article posits that the assassination of JFK should be commemorated as “National Ignorance Day” because the “common origin of some of America’s worst regional policies [in the Middle East] is the void created by the JFK assassination.” Another article speaks to the “Ten Explosive U.S. Government Secrets about Israel,” a compendium whose sub-headline asserts that absent greater transparency, (undoubtedly provided by IMrep) Americans “should assume the worst” about the Jewish state.

All of the articles reek of conspiracy theories in which high-ranking American or Israeli government officials, government organizations, Jewish lobbyists or Jewish political organizations plot to promote Israel’s interests and deceive the American public.

WRMEA bills itself as “a magazine published by the American Educational Trust focusing on news and analysis from and about the Middle East and U.S. policy in that region.” The American Educational Trust (AET) is an anti-Israeli organization responsible for the fiscal sponsorship of the Free Gaza Movement that has made numerous attempts to break the Israeli naval blockade of the Gaza Strip terror enclave. The AET accepted tax-deductible donations for the movement, despite its extensive ties to Hamas. At the WRMEA website, the AET makes the claim that it “does not take partisan domestic political positions” and that it supports Middle East solutions deemed to be “consistent with the charter of the United Nations, international law, the Geneva Conventions, and traditional American support for human rights, self-determination, and fair play.”

The magazine, published 9 times a year, makes the same claims as its publisher regarding its non-partisanship and support for Middle East “solutions.” Yet since its launch in 1982, the WRMEA has often defended Muslim groups who have advocated anti-Semitism and supported terrorism.

The current crop of stories on the main page of its website are telling. One is a column about Secretary of State John Kerry “facing down” Israel and AIPAC to reach an agreement with Iran that should earn him a Nobel Peace Prize. Another contends that the greatest danger to Israel is not an Iranian nuclear bomb, but the “stupidity of our leaders.” Iran, by contrast, “now looks like a responsible country, led by sober and shrewd leaders,” and AIPAC “has started to order its senators and congressmen to work out new sanctions” in order to save itself “from the image of utter failure.” Still another story accuses Israel of plundering Palestinian natural resources. There is also a piece written by Marwan Barghouti, one of the leaders of the Second Intifada against Israel. Barghouti who was unconditionally released from prison by Israel despite being convicted on five counts murder, likens his struggle against Israeli “apartheid” to that of Nelson Mandela’s triumph in South Africa.

Considering this lineup of organizers, there is little doubt that the self-described National Summit to Reassess the U.S.-Israel “Special Relationship” will have nothing to do with “reassessing” anything. More accurately it will be a rehash of tiresome, extreme anti-Israel accusations with no references to terror, other than that committed by Israeli “aggressors” seeking to preserve their “apartheid” regime. That preservation can only continue because of an American Congress utterly beholden to the interest of Jewish lobbyists such as AIPAC, and a Jewish-controlled media that serves as the Israel’s propagandists, either by commission or omission. No doubt a fun, Israel-bashing time will be had by one and all.

    Excellent Article

    Muslim countries receive over 2/3 of the 10 billion foreign aid. In fact in 2012, the bulk of foreign aid went to Muslim and African countries; all terminal economic basket cases.

    One despicable Jew/Israel hater is Grant Smith; frequent article on Russia Today. Blaming Israel from everything from the Vietnam War to floods in Brazil is common from him. Another Anti-war.com skunk on a Muslim payroll. No mention of the most powerful lobby, the $$$audi Lobby.

        “Right to exist”? What about Palestinians’ right to exist?
        The constitution doesn’t allow for the Israel special relationship nor the Muslim contributions. Let’s be objective.

        • billemerson

          You’re not allowed to be objective. Any criticism of Israel is anti-Semitic, remember? Even conjecture like, “even-handedness”, and other fair-minded, normal things.

          This IS America after all, isn’t it? LOL

          • Tiberius

            Not sure what America has to do with it but seems Iran is not so even handed either.

        • Omar

          The so-called “Palestinians” are an invented people created by the Soviet Union during the 1960s in order to discredit Israel’s right to exist. Israel is a historic reality, while so-called “Palestine” (which is a geographical name for the Holy Land region) is an artificial invention. That is undeniable.

          • jeff swanson

            Your conspiracy theory isn’t appreciated.
            Great Britain protected the stateless society known as Palestine from Egypt and as a result GB took it upon themselves to manage Palestine like a colony and negotiated a portion for Zionists during the League of Nations’ international mandate in 1925.

    • Mark

      And tiny Israel receives 1/3 (over $3.2 billion) half as much as all the others countries with hundreds of millions of people vs 8 million. Cut them all off except for catastrophic events. Americans need to wake up…and we are! Please “like” and share –councilforthenationalinterest — endtheoccupation — thank you!

      • Drakken

        Your right , we should end the occupation, kill all the goddamn muslims in Israel proper and call it a day, thanks so much for pointing out the obvious.

        • defcon 4

          Forcible deportation of muslimes and outlawing their death cult would be less expensive — at least politically.

  • yyarko

    A part of me kind of wishes that these organizations will be successful in ending the special relationship between the US and Israel. This will have the following benefits:
    1. The notion as though Israel is completely dependent upon American aid will finally be debunked.
    2. Israel will be free to export arms freely, without US impeding deals with China or India, as they have done in the past. This will result in an economic boom in Israel.
    3. Israel will no longer be committed to the ridiculous “peace process” with the Palestinians, and will be free to crush Palestinian terrorism one and for all.
    4. The incompetence of the current US foreign policy will finally be exposed.

    On the long run, this will only do good to Israel.

    • billemerson

      Then please tell AIPAC, so Americans and Congress can reconnect and start acting like a country again….

      Tons of people like me want Israel to go their own way, it’s just a ripoff-fealty system now, because Israel doesn’t want to fight its own wars.

      I’d love for them to stand alone; then they’d have to start acting like a real country. We’ll see how warlike and Likud-dominated they become after a few years.

      • Tiberius

        Personally foreign aid should not be GIVEN TO ANYONE if it was up to me. Let everyone live on their own. The biggest critics of US aid are usually the biggest moochers.

    • Dee

      And please stop protecting Israel against the scores of UN resolutions that it violates with impunity as it continues it’s ‘ethnic cleansing’, wars of aggression and land grabs from every neighbour.
      Let here be an even hand on the matter of WMD’s – and apply sanctions to Israel for it’s REAL nukes (not the phantom Iran ‘existential threat’ manufactured by the maniac Netanyahu – and 1 most likely used against Syria last year judging by the mushroom cloud video footage), appalling arsenal of biological creepy stuff (developed with the Dr Deaths of another apartheid I knew well), and chemical weapons – regularly used with impunity in the vilest of massacres.
      Section 7 for violating the many UN resolutions against Israel crimes against humanity should apply.

      • Tiberius

        Funny how Russia and China can be held up to authorities on human rights. The United Nations is just a cess pool that conglomerates in one building in NYC.

        • Omar

          While I can’t complain about Putin’s efforts to defeat Islamist militants in Russia, I can certainly berate him for reviving the old Soviet foreign policy in recent years. What Moscow needs is to cooperate with the West on important issues, but with our Radical-in-Chief in the White House, that would be a difficult task.

        PA Official: ‘If We Had a Nuke, We’d Use It This Morning’ (Video)

        The Palestinian Authority doesn’t need rocks, firebombs, guns and suicide bombers. Senior Fatah official Jibril Rajoub has a better way to kill Jews: “If we had a nuke, we’d use it this very morning.”

        Palestinians get more aid per capita then any people on earth yet they are always angry. All foreign aid should be cut off till they grow up, stop firing missiles at civilians, and learn to be productive humans instead of moochers and terrorists.

        My advice to these Pals is very simple.
        Quit trying to blow up innocent Israeli families on vacation. Quit trying to blow up Israeli civilians on buses. You Terrorstinians want your welfare handout from the West, than stop with the terrorism and your child abuse death cult.

        Hamas and Fatah are always ready to sacrifice women and children for their greed and hatred.

        The Palestinians will blow up the same hospital that gave them excellent care. The will try to blow up the power plant providing electricity from Israel. Their hate knows no end. Until they love their children more than they hate the Jews as Golda Meir said.

        Even a Rat in a sewer will care for it`s young, Yet the Palestinians use their women and children as human shields,.
        They have there children run across a field full of land mines.
        The Pals probably tell them that if you blow up you will have 72 toys.

          OOPS, typo there Ken. Replace “Palestinians” with “Israelis” and vice versa. You’re welcome.

            Replace “Palestinians” with “Israelis” n which sentence?
            Stop firing missiles at civilians?

            Quit trying to blow up civilians on buses?

            Sacrifice women and children for their greed and hatred?

            Blow up the same hospital that gave them excellent care?
            They will try to blow up the power plant providing electricity?
            Their hate knows no end?
            Use their women and children as human shields?

            Have there children run across a field full of land mines?
            Sorry but the Israelis respect ALL life and do no such things. If the Pals would live like a normal nation and stop trying to destroy Israel, we would have peace. And if ignorant haters like you stop spreading your hate around, the world would be a much better place. I have been to Israel many times and NOT ONCE have I heard someone say that they hate the Palestinians. Scared, yes. Worried about terrorism, yes. But never hate. Try asking that question in Gaza.

          • Drakken

            Go join your pali friends, I am sure St. Pancake needs some company.

      • Ken Kelso

        I can give you a thousand examples of war crimes committed by Palestinians, like killing Israeli children in their bed, blowing up buses, schools, disco’s, pizzeria’s, strapping mentally challenged kids with bombs, and I can go on all day.

        • Dee

          Yes … there have been atrocities on BOTH sides. I wonder if you have sufficient humanity to stop and think what sort of life, conditions, desperation, hopelessness could drive a young person to become a suicide bomber.
          The conditions that Palestinians live under are HOPELESS … as hopeless as the black folk in South Africa’s lives were in their economically unviable bantustans (but in truth – that apartheid wasn’t continually grabbing more land and water every week … and the world applauded when Mandela rose up against that injustice ) … and in the so called ‘democracy’ of Israel where non-jews are rated 2nd and 3rd class citizens UNDER LAW – it is no different to the S.African apartheid either.
          So …. I pray tjere will be an Abu Mandela and a De Klerkowitz and Rabbi Tutu to lead the way for RIGHT OF RETURN OF PALESTINIANS with equality under the law and constitution – and a single common destiny of all.
          The alternative is Israel will increasingly become the pariah of the world – and eternal war.

          • Omar

            You are a Stalinist/Maoist who is upset that the Soviet Union/Russia lost the Cold War. Why do you support Communist dictatorships? Why don’t you condemn the Islamist/Apartheid dictatorship in Sudan, where black African Christians are being butchered by the Islamist Arabs? It is because you support the Islamist dictatorship in Sudan, that’s why. Bottom line: Israel is a tolerant, inclusive democracy, while Islamist Sudan is the real apartheid state. That’s the reality.

          • Dee

            Omar – using an opening attack applying silly labels of Stalinist/Maoist, & by ‘divination’ determining my mind set on Soviet Union and Cold War, then deflecting to Sudan is the usual attack-muddy-divert tactic used in the Israeli debate.

            I thank you that it was a little more creative than the passé usual pattern containing ‘anti-semitic’, historic anecdote, Holocaust and irrelevant dead people.

            The topic at hand is Israel’s treatment of Palestinians / indigenous people of the land occupied & controlled by mainly (Ashkanazi) Europeans since 1948.
            You are either misinformed or being a little disingenuous about Israels ‘inclusive democracy’.
            Please do some research on what is deeply codified in Israel’s LEGAL STATUTES that deeply entrench apartheid via the ‘LAW OF RETURN’ – conferring privilege on Jews, and discrimination / exclusion of non-Jews. You might also like to check all the high sounding ‘improved human rights’ laws that Israelis are bamboozled with – that contain fine print clause, that no existing laws or provisions will be replaced. Then there is the matter of having no borders … and legally defined ‘unredeemed’ land ….. well, Omar – I will let you unravel the truth about the cruelty of legalising land theft and genocide of the indigenous. (And may I say that it will require a very clever Jewish lawyer to help you really understand how discriminatory and amoral the laws of Israel are).

            That is the LEGAL system ..but then there is also the SOCIAL system … even more discriminatory and apartheid in practical reality.
            There is also no RIGHT OF RETURN for any of those indigenous people displaced to West Bank, Gaza or refugee camps in Lebanon, Syria or scattered to the corners of the earth.
            Hence, I advocate FULL and EQUAL constitutional & legal rights for all … and particularly stop killing and cutting off water and grabbing ever more land from those living behind the Bethlehem Berlin walls, Negev, West Bank, Gaza, any and all land, water and resource of neighbours ….

          • Omar

            Oh, really? How are the Arabs indigenous to the region? Muslim Arabs arrived in the Holy Land almost 600 years after the Roman conquest of Judea and Samaria which were ancient Jewish establishments. For over 60 years, modern Israel has tried to make peace with its Arab neighbors over and over again. But Israel’s adversaries do not want peace with the Jewish state. The Islanders in the Middle East want a second Holocaust. Name me one so-called “Palestinian” leader who wants peace with the Jews? It is also important to mention that Arabs living in Israel have more rights and liberties as Israeli citizens than people living in other countries in the Middle East. That is undeniable. Why don’t you denounce the Muslim expansionism that took over Europe’s Iberian peninsula (Spain and Portugal) for during the Middle Ages? That is because you think that Islam is superior to others. It is interesting to note that in the contemporary world, your beloved so-called “Palestinians” support the Islamist regime in Sudan and it’s genocidal policies against black African Christians. Did you know that Israel is the main place of refuge for black African Christians and other victims of the Islamist dictatorship in Sudan? Let’s talk about another tragedy that you support. How about you denounce Communist China’s military occupation of Tibet and the ongoing genocide of the Tibetan people? Unlike your beloved so-called “Palestinians” (which are an invented people), the Tibetans are an indigenous people with their own language, their own religion and even their own ethnicity. Yet, you don’t care about the Tibetan people because you support Communist China. Returning to the Middle East conflict, name me one so-called “Palestinian” leader who wants peace with the Jews and who recognizes Israel’s right to exist.

          • Chloe Blue

            Dee — Even if you list a million more examples of cruel injustices, these people who are arguing back and forth, with insults, hate-speech and denial, do not want PEACE.

            They are desperate for excuses to continue their hatred. They do not want resolution — they desire power, money, control and complete dominion over others.

          • Dee

            In truth Chloe …I don’t blame the average Israeli citizen – they are absolutely conditioned and brainwashed from birth to believe in their superiority and divine right to subjugate, denigrate, commit atrocity, live in tribal & racist separation and supremacy. They are not told the truth about their govt’s aggression and actions – and indeed, even western msm does not report the truth. It is easy to become blind and deaf to the suffering of others when you are programmed to see them as less than human.
            And those Israeli’s or Jews who DO see the immorality and cruelty are subjected to extreme social shunning and pressure. Violence even. Have you listened to e.g Miko Peled “The General Son” – a fantastic Israeli – completely shocked when he learnt the truth of what he had just taken for granted as a child … , or seen the work of soldiers called “Breaking the Silence”
            I am a colonial African … and ironically, it was Jewish friends who opened my young eyes to the abhorrence of Apartheid. I understand every nuance of what Israelis are subjected to to keep them ’100% unconscious’ and ‘entitled to commit / have atrocity committed in their name’.
            I know too how fearful people become at the thought of a life long ‘inferior enemy’ might be given equality or dominance over a very privileged lifestyle … and how shocking it is for them to face the truth – making most very defensive, hostile and rabidly in denial .
            BUT – I’m grateful to those in my own life who opened my own consciousness …. hence I plug on at forums like this. It may just stop 1 Israeli using excessive force against a Palestinian kid, harassing them mercilessly at check points, being able to empathise with the plight of these people, to cross the divide and even visit Gaza / West bank to REALLY learn that there are pretty good folk living there …

            Dee ~ I am just now seeing your response to me!
            Thank you for all you’ve shared. I believe completely that continuing to spread this information and awareness WILL make a difference. I especially believe that having conversations with those who are in opposition to our beliefs, viewpoints, and feelings just may be the most powerful conversations of all. We never know when an important issue will arise where we can achieve some common ground and it is on that common ground that transformation can and will happen.

            I pray with all my heart and truly believe we will all witness greater peace internationally in our lifetimes.

            There was never in history any state called Palestine governed by Palestinians.
            Tell us when did it ever belong to Palestinians? Answer Never. It was never a Pal land to begin with, so your question is invalid.

            The Palestinians never governed or controlled any land before 1993.
            To make it simple, please tell me one Palestinian President before 1993? Keep thinking Dee.
            The Palestinians want a capital, which they never had, in a country that never existed

            Let me lay down some dots for you.
            - Israel is nothing much more than a grand m.east military outpost established for Anglo American Empire. Every imported schmuck conned into being a soldier – based on historic & religious beliefs /myths; kept in a state of aggression with ‘existential threats’, and a state of ‘entitlement’ through paradoxical victimhood and notions of superiority. Funded, armed with every WMD, they are protected in UN by Anglo American Empire / neo-Sykes Picot architects …and expected to expand through subjugation, genocide etc – as per establishment of US, Canada, Aus, NZ, S.Africa etc etc. … but like S.A will be dumped when US dependency on Saudi oil and petro $ over, and probably when Straits of Hormuz under a western military footprint.
            - Saudi ‘kingdom’ has special protection (for now) of Anglo American Empire – but ditto on the dumping rationale when it’s al CIAda / Mujahadin terrorists and Wahhabi factory becomes a liability. Bandar bin Sultan aka Bandar Bush already ‘undergoing medical treatment absence of leave’ – but apart from US special relationship, his son is a Sandhurst and Oxford (‘Islamic studies’) graduate and married into British aristocracy. Daddy makes large donations to Oxford ‘Islamic Studies’ and organisations.
            - The ‘Axis of Evil’ = Axis of Resistance = Axis of Shia vs Sunni (so called – but was a fallacy until the destruction and balkanisation of those Palestinian supporters started – post 09/11 …which was purportedly perpetrated by Saudis (and a great deal of help from friends).
            CUI BONO ???

            Jews are the indigenous people of Israel. The Muslims came in the 7th century. What part of this is so hard to understand.

          • Dee

            Sorry Omar – the science of DNA tests on the spectrum of ‘Israeli’s debunks the basis of your argument. There is about ZERO ‘semitic’ bloodlines found in Israel … hence Bibi doing a reverse-PR number in suggesting DNA tests should be done…. lol!!

            But on that logic, we could all lay claim to Sterkfontein / Africa and the resting place of Mrs Ples… Which reminds me of the same comedic argument given by Afrikaans Dominees and historians to salve the conscience and justify domination of multi-ethnicity white folk over the indigenous : We were told there were no black folk when Jan van Riebeck and Brits arrived at cape of Good hope …. the lousy scoundrels came from the north and attacked the poor peaceful settlers … and if you read the Bible, we were told, you will find XYZ chapter and verse that it was the will of God to have dominion over lesser folk.

            Our chat underscores 2 things for me :
            - the extraordinary rationalisation capability of victims to turn brutal ruthless victimisers …. and the age old problem of using our respective Gods name to justify such inhumanity.

        The Palestinians are obsessed with hate.
        They are a hateful people with lives ruled by prejudice, terrorism and murdering innocent Israeli civilians.

        When you have these same wicked Palestinian leaders telling their people that Jews are the sons of Pigs and Apes.
        When you have Palestinian Mufti’s teaching in Mosques that the highest goal for a Muslim is to kill the Jews and you wonder why 84% of the Palestinians supported the Mercaz Harav yeshiva massacre in 08 in Jerusalem.

        The Pals never contribute nothing to society, other than whining that Israel doesn’t want to live under Sharia law.

        Israel should be commended for its extreme restraint. Which other country would tolerate blood thirsty terrorists within and next door who want to annihilate their country.

        The racists are Palestinians who praise Buses being blown up with old Israeli people on board. Pizza restaurant and Disco’s where Israeli teenagers hung out, blown up.
        Crude racism was an old man in a wheel chair is pushed off a ship alive, because he was a Jew.

    “A Gallup poll taken last March reveals that Americans support Israel over the Palestinians by a margin of 64 percent to 12 percent, matching an all-time high.

        Well the country was known as Palestine for over 2000 years vs 65 years of being Israel. As for people that claim it is not practicing apartheid the evidence is all there. Just remember that it was Israel that threatened the WORLD with the “Samson Option” which was to destroy the world with nuclear weapons if the state failed(while also denying it has any such weapons and refusing to sign the NPT)
        It receives aid from the US yet has a good health system(for Israeli only) good economy and plenty of money while Iraq, Afghanistan etc are being rebuilt after being at war yet they get less but have more people in need.
        And before any on jumps off the deep end with the next comment on the Israeli Lobby – known also as the Zionist Lobby should maybe read up on the “Balfour Declaration” which led too the Americans joining and German defeat/disgrace and Hitlers hatred and expulsion(initially) of European Jews on the eve of war.

          Are you really that dumb??? Palestine was the name the Greeks gave to the JEWISH nation of Israel. Can you not even get yourself to read a read book?

How can you be so dumb and still consider yourself as a person that can engage in adult conversations???

          • Keyran

            I think the term you are looking for is “Kingdom” of Israel which existed at the same time as the Kingdom of Judea neither of which contained Gaza. Palestine in Greek writings referred to an area controlled by majority Jewish NOT the Greek name for “Jews”. This is why Romans called the area Palestine which contained both. It also contained Syria and some of Jordon which is why the state of Israel attacked tried to hold the golan heights in Syria with in 10 years of being given back the state…
            these border lines are all based on the always true, intellectual and factual teachings of the Bible !
            As for your “read a book” comment… it sounds to me like you are on the attack. No comment on anything else (or where those “ideas” correct?)
            Years ago when Israel could hide it’s crimes you heard nothing but with the birth of cheap camera phones, social media and internet nothing can be hidden for long and Israels crimes are vast and plentiful for a country birthed upon guilt and crimes upon it’s own people else where.

    country fails to exist if a different ethno-religious group than the current

  • Skip

    The 3.075 Billion per year figure merely represents “official US foreign aid to Israel.” In reality Israel receives as least double that amount every year, which originates from other parts of the US budget, including “black programs.” I might add that Israel receives untold private funds from the US every year. So, the 3.075 Billion in aid figure is ridiculously low.

      Absolutely.

      It’s high-time they go their own way. Israel is the 17th richest nation per capita on Earth.

        “Let Me Stand Alone” is a book containing collected writings, including diaries and letters, of Rachel Corrie, published by W. W. Norton & Company in 2008. Corrie was killed in 2003 by an Israel Defense Forces armored bulldozer while protesting the destruction of a Gaza house which allegedly contained tunnels for smuggling weapons from Egypt.

        “How do we find our way in the world? How do our actions affect others? What do we owe the rest of humanity? These are the timeless questions so eloquently posed by Rachel Corrie, a young American activist killed on March 16, 2003, as she tried to block the demolition of a Palestinian family’s home in the Gaza Strip.”

    ‘ Israel nails shut the coffin that is Gaza under a siege…….
    Steadily intensifying so that malnutrition rates rival those of sub-Saharan Africa, sewage runs raw in the streets and pollutes the ocean, homes are still being bulldozed to super-add collective punishment upon collective punishment; men, women and children are still being sniped at and killed; children are deafened by continuing sonic booms, the vast majority of them suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome, and many of that majority have no ambition other than becoming “martyrs”

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    ‘ How can anyone inflict such a lack of mercy on an entire people?
    The question can only be answered when we understand that Zionist extremists really do believe they are God’s Chosen People and that therefore the Palestinians are little more than cattle.

    Another Prime Minister and terrorist, Yitzhak Shamir, told Jewish settlers in 1988 that the Palestinians ‘would be crushed like grasshoppers … heads smashed against the boulders and walls.’ Prime Minister and terrorist, Ariel Sharon, then Israeli Foreign Minister, confirmed in 1998 what the plan really was for the Palestinians: ‘It is the duty of Israeli leaders to explain to public opinion, clearly and courageously, a certain number of facts that are forgotten with time. The first of these is that there is no Zionism, colonialisation, or Jewish State without the eviction of the Arabs and the expropriation of their lands.’

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    The plan is to kill or drive out the Palestinian people using poverty, hunger and war and so allow the Zionists to expand into ‘Greater Israel’. That plan is now well advanced.

    In early 2008, the United Nations’ leading humanitarian affairs official said he was ‘shocked’ by the ‘grim and miserable’ conditions in Gaza.
    Undersecretary General John Holmes blamed this on Israel closing the border crossings and so limiting the supply of food and other materials ­ just as they are doing today. He said: ‘All this makes for a grim human and humanitarian situation here in Gaza, which means that people are not able to live with the basic dignity to which they are entitled’.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    But they are just ‘beasts walking on two legs’, right? Richard Falk, the UN Human Rights Council Special Rapporteur on the occupied territories, has also condemned Israel for its actions in Gaza.

    He is Jewish and therefore much more dangerous to the Israel government because he can’t be dismissed as the old favourite ‘anti-Semitic’.
    Or maybe he is a ‘self-hater’, the tag given by these sick people to those Jews who speak out against Israel.

      Israel has made a concentration camp out of Palestine.It’s not quite so bad as Auschwitz but then it’s more chaotic which makes it worse in some ways.

    All of you Israel bashers are blind. As a woman, the only place in the Mideast I would live is Israel. You forget that honor killings, clitoridectomy, stoning, removal of nose, child brides (a.k.a pedophilia) occur in that part of the world, but you liberals would say “it is part of their culture”. That is the real war on women. If Israel goes so goes Western Civilization! For those who mock them as God’s chosen people, look around! They are the only civilization which has survived since ancient times. Sadly, I am more proIsrael than most of my Jewish friends.
