BREAKING: George Galloway Suspect Named by Brian Of London | Israellycool -
BREAKING: George Galloway Suspect Named by Brian Of London | Israellycool
The overwhelming majority of pro-Israel commenters on Israellycool are supporting the violent physical assault on Galloway. Some of them wish that much greater violence had been used. - Sean McBride
If Galloway doesn't "learn his lesson", he will actual appear more tough and bold, when he keeps speaking out on the topic. - WJones
The abusers in this case actually make themselves look bad - savage - by doing this. - WJones
He's he will double down on the Zionist. - American
Neil Masterson will now have no reasonable objection to being similarly attacked. Apparently this is how he (and many of his pro-Israel supporters) think politics should be conducted. - Sean McBride
set; remarks by pro-Israel activists in support of Neil Masterson's assault on George Galloway - Sean McBride
See pic of Masterson and David Cameron. is this photo manipulated? - Chu_ See his facebook organizations he lists. He has more pro Jewish organizations than most Jewish people. He's like a goyish attack dog. Surely if MP's aren't condemning this, this will encourage more people like Masterson. see list: ---------- Conservatives, David Cameron, Better Together, MiG-29 Fulcrum, United with Jerusalem, With Israel.... more... - Chu_
Galloway surprised at silence of Westminster (2:16m video) [first comment] "The latest is that Masterson lied and is in fact a Jew. More than that he is an ex BBC manager no less and I wouldn’t be surprised if he is ex IDF. New chairwoman of BBC Trust, Rona Fairhead is also a Jew. What a frigging surprise!The BBC is now an official hasbara outlet for the illegitimate Judaic State.George Galloway, a real Brit patriot." - Chu_
How many Roman Catholic and Christian organizations are listed among Masterson's Facebook friends? It will be interesting to learn if he was lying about being a Roman Catholic -- that question is still unresolved. - Sean McBride
The Daily Rupert: Why haven't London's Jewish leaders condemned the religiously motivated assault on MP @GeorgeGalloway by Neil Masterson? - Sean McBride
The outpouring of support among pro-Israel activists for the violent physical assault on George Galloway, combined with the lack of condemnation of the assault by Jewish and British leaders, means that all public figures in Europe and the United States who disagree with the Israeli government may be subject to similar assaults in the future -- or worse. - Sean McBride
Will Roger Waters or Russell Brand be next? Barack Obama or John Kerry? Brand reported that he has received death threats. - Sean McBride
[Twitter: Neil Masterson: real-time] - Sean McBride
Mondoweiss still hasn't covered the George Galloway story -- and the comment section is dead in the water. - Sean McBride
MW should have corrected the '100 recent comments' feature at this point. They seem to want to 'ice' the comments section. - Chu_
For years, pro-Israel activists and militants have pressured Mondoweiss to rein in the comment section. It looks like they have succeeded in achieving their goal. - Sean McBride
How the comment section has been gutted: 1. 100 recent comments page gone 2. no more comments on the front page 3. no more comment updates by email 4. threads closed quickly 5. many comments not approved or approved slowly 6. the ability to edit comments gone 7. blockquotes in comments no longer highlighted 8. copying and pasting material for comments nearly impossible - Sean McBride
pro-Israel activists - Like MJ Rosenberg. Biggest complainer of the comments section to date. - Chu_
The new Mondoweiss has greatly reduced the ability of readers and commenters to comprehend and process Mondoweiss as an integrated and interactive informational and cognitive space. With the old Mondoweiss, one could easily grasp the flow of conversation across all articles. (I don't think Crowd Favorite would have a clue as to what I am talking about.) - Sean McBride
A sign that the comments is being shut down, is a sign that it was a threat to Jewish power. MJ still is a power broker who led the charge. - Chu_

Israel’s right wing Zionists, Palestine’s militant resistance are political winners after Gaza slaughter -
Polling shows that Hamas's popularity has spiked across Palestine with 61 percent saying the same strategy of militant resistance should be adopted in the West Bank. Israelis, meantime, have shifted right, more supporting settlements leader Naftali Bennett, who makes sitting P.M. Netanyahu look like a centrist
What is the global polling on Hamas? Resistance fighters are usually praised as the underdog. Surely their numbers have risen while Israel's plummet. - Chu_
There is no non violent or non punitive solution to Israel. What do you do with a psychopath who has gotten away with his crimes for 65 years? You lock him up...that's all you can do for psychopathy.. - American
Israel is getting more nationalist and right wing. When Naftali Bennet becomes prime minister, does US Congress have a plan to 'pull out' on funding Israel? congress enaables their bravado, but if they didn't have US support, they'd be at the negotiating table with Palestinians 20 years ago. - Chu_
Salon Q&A: William Deresiewicz on millennials, the meritocracy, student loans and what's wrong with the Ivy League
“They are intellectually underpowered and full of themselves, because they’ve been told their whole life how wonderful they are” - pepsi
"Elite schools, Deresiewicz argued, give their students an inflated sense of self-worth. They reward perfectionism and punish rebelliousness. They funnel timid students into a handful of jobs, mostly in consulting and investment banking (and now Teach for America). For a real education, he went on to suggest, you might want to head to one of the wonkier liberal arts colleges, or to a state school." - pepsi
"In his new book, “Excellent Sheep,” Deresiewicz expands his argument into a full-on manifesto about the failures of the meritocracy. His timing is good. Ambitious families continue to arm their children with APs, SAT prep courses and expensive admissions advisors. At the same time, despite big financial aid packages, the student bodies at elite schools remain staggeringly affluent." - pepsi
"Here’s my point. In the last 50 years, the system that takes kids in the Ivy League and comparable schools has evolved to create a certain kind of student. Yes, it’s possible to go to Harvard and not be an excellent sheep. The point is that the system is pushing you very hard in that direction." - pepsi
Graduating from an elite school makes people 'assume' you are smart when that isn't necessarily the case...look at idiot Bush Jr who could barely speak English. How is 'smart defined anyway? There is a huge difference between 'intelligent or 'smart or' skilled or 'trained. You can learn a skill or be trained in for instance banking or law at Harvard but does being able to be 'trained'... more... - American
I further think that what is called-->in·tu·i·tive /inˈt(y)o͞oitiv/ adjective adjective: intuitive using or based on what one feels to be true even without conscious reasoning; instinctive""-----> is that unconscious part of brain, some prior but forgotten knowledge, operating behind the scenes. - American
This is the Jewish influence: "First of all, they tend to be timid and risk-averse, because the system requires perfection. There’s constant busyness, the constant accumulation of credentials. And this is the sheep part: conformity. You’re doing the same things that everyone else like you is doing, in order to get the same goals that everyone like you wants. I would also add — and I’m... more... - pepsi
"I would also say that there’s intellectual shallowness. Which doesn’t mean these kids aren’t smart. They’re smart, and they’re very academically accomplished. But there’s a big disconnect now between being academically accomplished and being intellectual. Being intellectual means really getting into something and studying for its own sake, not “I need to get an A in this class, because it’s one of 20 things I need to do right now.” - pepsi
The ugly return of anti-Semitism By Timothy Stanley
"The tolerance that some on the left are showing toward anti-Semitism threatens to delegitimize fair and reasonable criticism of Israeli policy. They have allowed a potentially noble cause to be infiltrated by people without a shred of nobility. They need to put their house in order before it collapses down on all of us." - pepsi
They have allowed a potentially noble cause to be infiltrated by people without a shred of nobility."- and what do zionists know about being noble? - Chu_ from Android
This guy wouldn't know nobility if it smacked him in the face. ..he and his kind have no concept of honor...its as foreign to them as the truth is. - American
Sean McBride
MJ (Mike) Rosenberg: George Galloway is a Jew-hater. Period.
See the comments on Twitter. - Sean McBride
Many pro-Israel militants would like to beat up and silence Mike Rosenberg on the grounds that he is a "self-hating Jew" and a traitor. - Sean McBride
Mike Rosenberg leaves the impression in this tweet that he thinks that George Galloway got what was coming to him -- and that violent physical assaults are a legitimate form of political debate in democratic societies. - Sean McBride
looks like someone followed your link from here. - WJones
MJ may profess his disgust with Israel now but his real problem never changes. His core hang up is that he insists/believes that Jews should be treated more 'specially' ..i.e...with more respect, deference, etc. than other people or groups because of their special suffering and goodness. Anyone like Galloway or me for instance who speaks bluntly, and by that I mean doesn't candy coat... more... - American
Sean, this kinda proves my point about him. He is not a worthy person to have on your side. Another churlish new york Zionist. Do you get what I was saying, even though you said better late than never? - Chu_
Effective propaganda and political action is all about exploiting every available resource and opportunity in the moment, not by declaring this or that party a permanent friend or enemy. The political landscape is shifting all the time in complex ways. - Sean McBride
If you disagree with someone 80% of the time, use the other 20% for all it's worth. - Sean McBride
Point taken. He's already proved he is at best inconsistent and shaky on his positions, but this statement is really crass [Galloway is a Jew Hater. Period] - Chu_
Teaching Kids About the Holocaust: How Young Is Too Young? ‘Let the Celebrations Begin,’ an acclaimed and controversial Australian children’s book, raises questions about Holocaust education

Howard Stern RIPS Anti-Israel Celebs Again, Debates Callers - 08/11/14
Howard Stern is completely out of the closet on his politics. - Sean McBride
Pro-Israel activism -- check out the language. - Sean McBride
Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren and Samantha Power are basically on the same page with Howard Stern. - Sean McBride
So this is Judaism? - Sean McBride
Stern is a deviant. ..sick guy. - American
Listen to the language in this video -- I am no prude, but Howard Stern's mental space is a sewer. Many Israelis sound like Howard Stern these days. They are undermining their own cause. - Sean McBride
Try to envision Jewish celebrities during earlier eras of American history and popular culture promoting Jewish issues and interests this way -- it is unthinkable. This is what Zionism has wrought. - Sean McBride
Intellectually, Stern is a complete zero -- but everyone already knew that. - Sean McBride
Bitch slapping, bullying, sadism, vandalism, spitting, urinating, defecating -- it all comes as a bundle of maniacal aggression and utter contempt for others. It verges on the demonic. The behavior seems compulsive and completely out of control. It's not funny. It's grotesque. - Sean McBride
Basic decency does matter in human affairs. - Sean McBride
Around 23:00 a normal-headed caller comes on, as opposed to the jesters that are on earlier. - WJones
It would be nice to think that Howard Stern is a jester on Israel and Jewish nationalism, someone who is mocking all the crazy ranting on the subject from all sides (including his own), but I think he is a fanatic when it comes to what he perceives as his ethnic self-interest -- just like Bill Maher, Jackie Mason, Joan Rivers, Sarah Silverman and Seth Rogen. How much of their humor is a form of malicious and bullying aggression against ethnic outsiders which they try to pass off as innocent good fun? - Sean McBride
Stern, Maher, Silverman and that small circle are probably wondering why so few leading Hollywood talents have signed their pro-Israel petition -- most big names are keeping their distance. - Sean McBride
Here's a list of the signers of pro-Israel petition: http://www.creativecommunityfo... - james
Pro-Peace, Pro-Victory, Pro-Stopping Hamas - WJones
Stern has two weak points- he started talking about Hamas trying to use people as human shields, or trying to get the Israelis to attack people and wanting it. He kind of mumbled it and it was pretty brief. He is straight-forward in his talk a lot, and I'd like to think that he was sincere. Maybe some of the talking points are tough for their supporters. The other weak point was when he... more... - WJones
He is spouting the same arguments as Hophmi or any other variety troll. His two million moronic followers may believe him. and Robin is an uncle Tom for Jewish interests. What a dynamic duo of geniuses putting down Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz. (Stern 'God bless Jon Voight'). - Chu_
Howard stern uses Sarah Palin to buttress his pathetic arguments. - Chu_
Howard Stern to Jewish caller: 'when they come for you, the only place you'll have in this world is Israel' [minute 23] -(tells caller he can make his piont, but when he starts, Stern cuts him off the phone) - Chu_
Howard Stern - article "Stern’s parents, both staunch liberals, refused to move on philosophical grounds (Roosevelt, Long Island), and soon found themselves among the few white families remaining in Roosevelt.Growing up in what became a primarily African-American community, ...An annual summer gig as a [camp counselor] became a much sought after escape, and Stern often mentions it as his only happy childhood memory." - Chu_
[camp counselor] "It was founded in 1935 by a Jewish philanthropic organization. The name stood for “Welfare Metropolitan.” Radio personality Howard Stern is among the now-famous people who went to Camp Wel-Met as a kid. After various mergers and organization changes, Camp Wel-Met doused its last campfire in 1997." - Chu_

Richard Cohen says he married Israel and has been faithful during ups and downs -
Longtime Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen has a book coming out in two weeks called Israel: Is It Good for the Jews? a question that Cohen answers in the affirmative. From his publisher, Simon and Schuster: A very personal journey through Jewish history (and Cohen’s own), and a passionate defense of Israel’s legitimacy.Richard Cohen’s book is
I seen quite a few articles and writings lately *romanticizing* the Jews and Zionism---don't know if this a new tactic to distract from the current 'horrors of Jewish Zionism and Isr--- or just more of the usual narcissistic mythologizing of Jews by Jewish writers----which ever it is, I don't think think its going to help the Jewish case re Israel.. - American

Israel Appropriates West Bank Land for Possible Settlement Use -
"Israel announced on Sunday a land appropriation in the occupied West Bank that an anti-settlement group termed the biggest in 30 years and a Palestinian official said would cause only more friction after the Gaza war." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

American -- Michael Gerson is a Christian evangelical: [Wikipedia; Michael Gerson] - Sean McBride
Anti Semitism arising from their own delusions. - American
Doesn't matter---all the Jewish delusions are in that piece. - American
Delusion 1, the Glory---->''of an ancient people seized by a sense of identity that has lasted four millennia, that has made foundational contributions to ethics, social justice and rational inquiry, and that has often been requited with suspicion and violence. Many Jews, religious or secular, embracing or resisting, feel the glory and burden of this history. - American
It matters greatly -- Christian evangelicals who hold these beliefs greatly outnumber Jews in general and Jews who specifically hold these beliefs -- unless you want to argue that Christian Zionists aren't responsible for their own beliefs. - Sean McBride
Delusion 2 -its the others projection---->'' Historically, Jews have been a stateless entity on which people have projected their anger and resentments - American
I don't think there are as many CZ as as they constantly claim---but it really doesnt matter. - American

I read the Michael Gerson article in full -- it's shallow and doesn't address any of the key questions regarding Israel's conflicts with much of the world -- including with contemporary American and European governments. Clearly Gerson has done no thinking about messianic ethnic and religious nationalism. I would love to debate him on the subject. - Sean McBride

Notice how often the Jewish press itself keeps referring to Jews as a monolithic ethnic collective: this article uses the terms "the Jews" and "the Jewish people." - Sean McBride
Are "the Irish," "the Germans," "the Swedes," etc. demanding that Hillary Clinton and other American politicians promote their ethnic nationalist interests? No. The notion would be outrageous and preposterous. Most Americans do not organize their politics around ethnic nationalism. They do not define themselves in ethnic nationalist terms. They are individual members of a modern Western... more... - Sean McBride
They can claim they are not monolithic all they want ---but they are 'more monolithic than 'not monolithic on Jewish interest and identity. Even in the differing sects of Jews or Judaism they are monolithic in putting jewish interest above anything else. - American
If you don't want to be seen by the world as a monolithic ethnic collective, don't keep describing yourself as such. It's quite simple. And keep a low profile on your ethnic identity. - Sean McBride
Dont they want to be seen as a monolithic collective? I think they do want to be seen that way when it 'benefits' them----and deny and complain about it when it doesn't 'benefit' them. - American

Good for the Goose is one of the most vile antisemitic sewers on the Internet.
Several of the leaders of the group fit the same profile as "Jason Beck," the agent provocateur who was uncovered by Common Dreams: - Sean McBride
If you are associated with GFTG, you are probably being closely tracked by the ADL, SPLC, FBI, DHS and other similar organizations and being pushed up the ranks of terrorism watchlists. The group appears to be a honeypot to draw potentially dangerous extremists out of the woodwork who aren't very bright and who are easy to dupe. - Sean McBride
If pepsi keeps posting here after repeatedly being asked not to, this post will keep being bumped to the top. If that doesn't work, we'll take it to the next level. - Sean McBride
I dont think GFTG is the most vile anti semitic sewer on the net----true that some on it like to 'prank it up' and there's lot of ridicule of the tribe.but its hardly dripping with blood libels and garbage.....just intense dislike of the tribe..some is valid criticism other may be personal dislike for whatever reason or experience. pepsi excells at pushing you always let him push yours. - American
Most of the rhetoric on GFTG is indistinguishable from that of "Jason Beck" -- often word for word -- gutter antisemitism of the most extreme variety. - Sean McBride

Regarding Elizabeth Warren
MHughes976, - Sean McBride
<blockquote> Clinton is a powerful personality revelling in her warrior queen persona.... </blockquote> - Sean McBride
tree and ritzl would probably characterize your reference to "warrior queen persona" as being sexist. :) - Sean McBride
We can now add Elizabeth Warren to the list of "liberals" and "progressives" (like Hillary Clinton and Samantha Power) whose views on foreign policy differ little from those of Pamela Geller, Jennifer Rubin, Caroline Glick, Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann. - Sean McBride
Does everyone fully appreciate the magnitude of what Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren have done in recent days? -- they are pushing the Democratic Party to the *right* of Barack Obama and John Kerry on American Mideast policy on behalf of Benjamin Netanyahu, Likud Zionism and Greater Israelism. - Sean McBride
END COMMENT - Sean McBride
I have accepted that we are living in ORWELL WORLD here in the US. These politicians are on ANOTHER PLANET. All that remains is to see what happens when and if the public wakes up and throws a fit. Washington is beyond all hope. It will take a serious upheaval to rid the US of them. - American
My high hopes for Elizabeth Warren have been fully demolished. Many other people feel the same way. - Sean McBride
George Galloway 'beaten over Israel comments'
Check out the comments here: [Anti-Israel MP George Galloway Beaten Up, Left with 'Broken Jaw' on London Street] - Sean McBride
See also the comments here: [MP beaten up in London, apparently over anti-Israel stance] - Sean McBride
Many of the comments are endorsing and encouraging the use of physical violence against critics of Israel in Europe and the United States. - Sean McBride
A typical comment: "GOOD!!! GOOD!!!! JEWS OF THE WORLD!! FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!!! CARRY WEAPONS!!! USE THEM!!! Force is the only thing that thugs understand!! Anti-Israelism only gives cover to wanna-be Nazis everywhere. George Galloway is one such anti-Israelite and he needs to experience the hatred he is unleashing first-hand. Hopefully there is more to come down upon his big fat mouth."... more... - Sean McBride
It would be useful to collect all the comments across all publications which celebrate the physical beating of Galloway and encourage more physical attacks against critics of Israel. Many pro-Israel activists have moved far beyond debating Israeli issues -- they are itching to murder their political opponents. And the evidence is in these comments. Quite a few of them would like to treat Americans and Europeans as Israel has been treating Palestinians -- with maximum physical brutality. - Sean McBride
Wonder if this will be treated as 'hate crime' - American
An interesting point here: some mainstream pro-Israel publications are encouraging reader comments that advocate and agitate for physical assaults on political opponents -- apparently their editorial policies permit the incitement of violence. - Sean McBride
Are NSA and GCHQ deep mining all the comments? Probably. There are potential assassins and terrorists in that dataset. - Sean McBride

Did Certain Foreign Governments Facilitate the 9/11 Attacks? by Justin Raimondo -- -
""Through its investigation, the Joint Inquiry developed information suggesting specific sources of foreign support for some of the September 11 hijackers while they were in the United States. The Joint Inquiry’s review confirmed that the Intelligence Community also has information, much of which has yet to be independently verified, concerning these potential sources of support. In their testimony, neither CIA nor FBI officials were able to address definitively the extent of such support for the hijackers globally or within the United States or the extent to which such support, if it exists, is knowing or inadvertent in nature."" - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
""Since September 11, more than 60 Israelis have been arrested or detained, either under the new patriot anti-terrorism law, or for immigration violations. A handful of active Israeli military were among those detained, according to investigators, who say some of the detainees also failed polygraph questions when asked about alleged surveillance activities against and in the United States." - Sean McBride
"There is no indication that the Israelis were involved in the 9-11 attacks, but investigators suspect that the Israelis may have gathered intelligence about the attacks in advance, and not shared it. A highly placed investigator said there are ‘tie-ins.’ But when asked for details, he flatly refused to describe them, saying, ‘evidence linking these Israelis to 9-11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It’s classified information.’" - Sean McBride
"Days after the broadcast of part four, the whole series disappeared from the Fox News site. The powerful pro-Israel lobby went after reporter Cameron, accusing him of anti-Semitism on account of his upbringing: he had grown up, in part, in the Middle East, where his father was an archeologist working in Iran. Pressure was applied to media organizations not to do any follow up reporting on this story of Israeli complicity." - Sean McBride

Graham said 'goverments'--plural---so Israel and Saudi? Or some Saudis just financing terrorist and Israel knowing it and then sending agents to the US to 'ease' their way and aid their mission? That's my bet---I don't think Isr and Saudi would have trusted each other enough to do a joint venture attack on the US. I have always thought Isr was involved somehow----nothing is beneath them. - American
Why was so much effort exerted to bury the Carl Cameron and Christopher Ketcham stories -- and the key 28 pages in the official report? - Sean McBride
The Ketcham article: [article; Christopher Ketcham; What Did Israel Know in Advance of the 9/11 Attacks? High-Fivers and Art Student Spies; Information Clearing House; March 7, 2007 http://www.informationclearing...] Read the details carefully. - Sean McBride
Liberal Zionism: It can't be dead because it never existed
"More and more voices, it seems, argue that supporting Israel is no longer compatible with humanist values, given Israel’s hawkish policies Vis-à-vis Gaza and the West Bank. That the term itself, liberal Zionism, is an oxymoron. But “liberal Zionism” isn't an oxymoron. It's a yearning for a humanist, righteous, pure Zion that frankly never existed, while reluctantly putting up with the actions of its real-er, less-righteous counterpart." - Chu_

It irritates me that people call it 'colonial expansion"...colonial expansion refers to' an existing country' expanding and colonizing another..

Controversial tear gas canisters made in the USA -
"In both Tunisia and Egypt, some protesters stopped to pick up canisters, and posted photographs online. A few inches long, blue and silver, they include warning labels and then a set of initials: CSI, followed by "Made in the U.S.A." The photograph posted in Tunisia was of a 40 mm riot CS smoke projectile, made by a company called Combined Systems Inc., which describes itself as a "tactical weapons company" and is based in Jamestown, Pennsylvania." - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
"CSI's website ( bills the company as the "premier engineering, manufacturing and supply company of tactical munitions and crowd control devices globally to armed forces, law enforcement, corrections and homeland security agencies." Clients include the U.S. Army, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, and the U.S. Department of State, as well as Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and Israeli Military Industries -- both of which are weapons companies based in Israel." - ChasMark
In 2011, when these incidents occurred and Tunisians and Egyptians were killed by CSI tear gas, the facility in Jamestown, PA flew the US flag and the flag of Israel beside its front door. - ChasMark

Analysis: Military sources say Pentagon’s assessment of Shujaiya shelling alarmed even Secretary of State John Kerry - Chu_
It was a f'ing 'Intentional Slaughter'---there is No other way to describe it. - American
Is it me or is the overall response to this slaughter more blase than in Cast Lead? At least there was the Goldstone Report (sideshow), who investigated the sick acts of Israel government and army. I think an investigation is coming, but seems slow. (and when are we going to hear the hasbara San Remo bit again?) - Chu_

Palestine officials need to quit crying wolf and Go to the ICC.....enough talk already. Do it. Charge the US officials also with war crimes. 3/4's of the world would love to see the US made to answer for its shit too. I would support putting 99% of congress in the dock at the Hague. - American

ok, this time I WATCHED the clip, didn't just read the transcript. Maybe it's that I've not watched these guys before -- I don't do TV -- I still don't get it. Scarb. said 2 or 3 times, "It's Hamas's fault," he agreed that Hamas uses children as human shields. The point about "If someone points a gun at your kids" was unclear -- who is pointing the gun? who is holding the kids? That my take-away, from someone who is not acquainted with the larger background of these characters. - ChasMark
I agree with you. And it's note that this is the furthest a tv personality has said against a zionist troll on air. it's a slow and long hill to climb, but this skirmish was a bit different that the usual shaking head in agreement (like mark shields, or charlie rose would do) - Chu_
I didn't watch it, I just heard him compare hamas to the IRA and that sounded about right and a big departure from the MSM norm. - pepsi
ok. So in the 'inch by inch' reclaiming of the American media landscape from zionists, Scarborough gained 3". Good job. Goal to go. - ChasMark
Scarborough was trying to condemn Israel's bombing while still blaming Hamas ----he wants to keep his paycheck. but at least he got in some really deadly points with talking about the dead Palestine children. That's a change----he wouldn't have talked that way prior to this latest Gaza massacre I don't think. Does show us how Isr's outright ' indiscriminate murdering' of. Gazans got to people. - American
After this slaughter, I get the sense from average people I talked to that they have no sympathy for israel. The well is drying up for poor poor israel. - Chu_ from Android

Analysing Zionism: interview with Jacqueline Rose from 2005 | -
Analysing Zionism: interview with Jacqueline Rose from 2005 |
"The state of Israel was founded in 1948 when Zionist militias — with the connivance of British authorities — embarked on a brutal ethnic cleansing programme that drove over 750,000 Palestinians from their homes, an event known as the Naqba, or catastrophe." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
“But the strongest rage has been against the book’s use of psychoanalysis. This comes from people who are convinced that Zionism is completely rational, that it was the pursuit of a Jewish national homeland in the face of historic disaster—and that nothing else needs to be said. But there’s a lot more that needs to be said to understand why it won’t budge, why it defends itself with such fierce ideological and Biblical commitment.” - Sean McBride
"Reading the book it’s not hard to see why it sparked such a vociferous response from the Zionist right. Rose meticulously documents the way in which Zionism was from its earliest roots shot through with a “messianic” streak that celebrated cataclysmic redemption and militarised colonial violence." - Sean McBride
"As Sabby Sagall argued in a recent review of Rose’s book, “All the evidence indicates that Israel is immune to internal calls for radical change or movements from below. Change will, therefore, have to come from outside.”" - Sean McBride
Rose's was the first book I ever read on Zionist. - American
American, I believe I saw you once recommend this book on MW (Unless it was MRW who also recommends books...). So I ended up buying it and id not regret. Had lots of useful information for me. See? I listen... - Danaa
Yep I did recommend it, maybe MRW did too. I didn't read much about Zionism or Jews when I first got attached to the Isr issue, I was more into the politics of it on the US side in the beginning.

Two sets of interest: 1. set; Jewish critiques of non-Jewish cultures 2. set; non-Jewish critiques of Jewish culture - Sean McBride
Jewish nationalism (Zionism) is the only expression of ethnic and religious nationalism that not only enjoys legitimacy in the modern Western democratic world, but which demands and often receives lavish worship and declarations of eternal devotion. One would think that more inquiring minds (like Elizabeth Warren) would be bothered by the discrepancy -- but it is much easier to pretend not to notice the situation -- to play along with it. - Sean McBride
I am willing to bet that jewish critiques of non jewish culture out number non jewish critiques of jewish culture by about a million to one. When I was doing some reading and research on Jewishness I looked for some non jewish takes on jewish culture and could hardly find any--the ones I did find were done eons ago prior to WWII----the holocaust quashed any examinations of it... more... - American
How many prominent Jewish authors have engaged in vigorous criticism of the American government, European governments, Christianity, Western culture, Islam etc. over the last half century? How open have those authors been to non-Jewish critiques of Jewish culture, Judaism, Zionism and the Israeli government? Quite a few of them want the criticism to flow only in one direction. - Sean McBride

The Palestinian message to Israel: Deal with us justly. Or disappear -
Until Operation Protective Edge, most of the “messaging” regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, certainly that which broke through the mainstream media, came from the Israeli side. Since Zionism’s official beginnings in Palestine some 110 years ago, the Jewish community, whether the pre-state Yishuv or constituted as the state of Israel, never took the Palestinians seriously. They
The title's focus on an alleged desire by Palestinians to see another entity (here, the state) disappear is that it pushes the viewer to then countenance the positives sides of that state, to consider what positives we would be missing. There is a romantic, appealing aspect to the idea of the revival of ancient Hebrew language and culture in their descendants' society. This appealing is... more... - WJones
There is no "waiting for moderation" bar over this comment when I submitted it in MW. - WJones
''' My impression is that Israelis chose Palestine not for safety or because it welcomed them - it was neither the safest nor most welcoming, but for the romanticism discussed above. "//Jones).....I don't think romance had anything to do with it. Palestine was chosen because the Zionist could then hook into the "Israel" of Judaism and draw more Jews into supporting it. As we see now hooking Israel to Judaism's ..."yearning"... has worked for them, Israel the state is now part of Judaism. At least for now. - American

Beinart urges young Jews to get arrested in the West Bank for the sake of Zionism. Will they? -
Peter Beinart has a column in Haaretz calling on American Jews who believe in the two-state solution to take direct action now and like the Mississippi Freedom Summer go out to the West Bank to oppose the settlement program. He wants those liberal Zionists to march alongside the Palestinian activists and the international BDS types:
Hummm....I wonder if he will get any takers on that. - American

Pro-Israel comment: "Its all about anti-semitism and due to apparent jeolousy by other nations; like it or not The G-D of Israel allowed this to happen to israel partly to call israel to return to Him with whole heart, not until israel call on her Messiah....Baruch haba bashem Adonai, israel will always be hated by her enemies." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
' apparent jeolousy by other nations' - yeah, we are all sooo jealous we don't get to be in a ethnocentric cult. When was the last time I bought an Israeli technical product? Never. Japan and S. Korea provide the US with excellent products. I don't think I'll need Sodastream to enhance my quality of life. - Chu_

Gilad " the Zionist smear campaign against me and my work has faded, the so called Jewish ‘anti’ Zionists, A.K.A AZZ (anti Zionist Zionists), are ever more infuriated by my thoughts. They are desperate to silence me."
"The institutional attempt to silence any debate about Jewish power is provided by the Jewish Left and the so called Jewish anti Zionist network (JVP, Mondowiess, Chomsky, Blumenthal, etc.). It is the Jewish Left that attempts to set the boundaries of the discussion and dictates what can and cannot be said." - pepsi

From that mondoweiss comment section: "I think something that drives the great creative and intellectual achievements of the Jewish community over the past 150 years has been it's ability to stand with one foot in and one foot out of post-enlightenment western culture. We're not totally a part of it, and we're not complete outsiders, we can look at it from a unique angle." - See more at: - pepsi
Nothing further from the truth than that----on both foots their main and frequently only concern is what is good for them. I don't call that greatly creative or intellectual tribalism, nothing unique about that except its more unique to the Jewish tribe than others. - American
I'll pay a reward to anyone who can list for me any great jewish creative or intellectual achievements that have been 'positive' or furthered peaceful civilization or democracy or great thoughts for the betterment of the human race. I want specific examples----no one I've asked for 12 years can give me a specific example. - American

Zionists force a very truncated view of history, perhaps because in the zionist mind history began with Jewish emancipation 1789, and the creation of the "new Jew" began perhaps with the Haskalah movement in Russia ~1880.

cultural marxism. (alternate view) 'Cultural Marxism or Cultural Bolshevism (degenerate culture) seeks to destroy everything good about a society, what holds it together, what helps it to advance, what promotes intelligence and beauty. It seeks to degenerate society and take it to a lower form where people are less intelligent and more animal. It's based on the Marxist lie that everything good about society is all a form of oppression.' - Chu_
