Holocaust Honor From Israel Is Sent Back After Gaza Deaths - -
Holocaust Honor From Israel Is Sent Back After Gaza Deaths -
"In 1943, Henk Zanoli took a dangerous train trip, slipping past Nazi guards and checkpoints to smuggle a Jewish boy from Amsterdam to the Dutch village of Eemnes. There, the Zanoli family, already under suspicion for resisting Nazi occupation, hid the boy in their home for two years. The boy would be the only member of his family to survive the Holocaust." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"Seventy-one years later, on July 20, an Israeli airstrike flattened a house in the Gaza Strip, killing six of Mr. Zanoli’s relatives by marriage. His grandniece, a Dutch diplomat, is married to a Palestinian economist, Ismail Ziadah, who lost three brothers, a sister-in-law, a nephew and his father’s first wife in the attack." - Sean McBride
"On Thursday, Mr. Zanoli, 91, whose father died in a Nazi camp, went to the Israeli Embassy in The Hague and returned a medal he received honoring him as one of the Righteous Among the Nations — non-Jews honored by Israel for saving Jews during the Holocaust. In an anguished letter to the Israeli ambassador to the Netherlands, he described the terrible price his family had paid for opposing Nazi tyranny." - Sean McBride

Why are they screaming that they want justice? What do they mean by "justice"? There's going to be an investigation, so why are they rioting and confronting the police? The larger community makes it seem that the cops may have been right about the individual, which is sure to influence a jury. At least wait until after the trial to riot and threaten to murder the cops. - Todd

I'd like to know what Jews have done that is a net positive for the nation. Civil rights? No effing way! The cynical pitting of different groups against one another for the benefit of the tribe doesn't count.

HOLY CRAP...Obama halts hellfire missiles to Israel

Laminate this for your Wallet, Emboss it on a whoopee cushion -- How to Criticize Israel without being Anti-Semitic: The Unofficial Guide | The Occidental Observer -
"Bob July 30, 2014 - 4:31 pm | I hate to be the one to break this news, but the Jews are correct about one thing…any attempt to roll back Jewish power, whether it be by addressing Jewish power over media, finance, politics or even Israeli expansionism, is by definition “anti-Semitic” if you take “anti-Semitism” to mean “opposition to Jewish interests”. You cannot oppose Jewish power without opposing Jewish interests…they are directly linked. No matter how benevolent some Jews and/or Gentiles may claim Jewish power is, the fact remains that this power is all too real and has now become so great that it pervades nearly all aspects of life in the modern world. - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
"My point here is that the correct response to a charge of “anti-Semitism” is to simply admit up front that you are opposed to Jewish power when that power becomes out of balance with their actual number within a society. Readily admit up front that you are advocating your own group interests and that you are opposed to Jewish interests to the extent that they conflict with the interests of your own group. It is not a question of “hate”. It is a question of interests. - ChasMark
"What we are experiencing is a competition for resources and power which has been going on since man existed in small hunter/gatherer bands. Humans have always segregated themselves into in-groups and competed with out-groups for resources. - ChasMark
"What is different today is that we have a highly ethnocentric alien group which exhibits a very high degree of in-group cooperation across national borders (on a global scale in fact) which competes within the societies in which they exist for resources and power with the “native” populations. They use their collectivist networking, not just with other in-group members within a society, but with in-group members from other societies, to give them a very powerful advantage in this competition. - ChasMark
"The truth is that Jews do not dominate media, finance and politics because they are smarter or more talented, but because they are a much more cohesive and effective TEAM. Competition between Jews and Gentiles is akin to sending out a group of individuals who do not work together to play a game of football with a professional football team. The team will always prevail over a collection of individuals…even if the collection of individuals may actually be more talented. - ChasMark
"As Europeans (or Americans) we see our societies as competitions between individuals and we compete quite effectively on that basis. Jews are simply playing by a different set of rules. - ChasMark
"The truth that few can seem to recognize is that we face a very simple choice. We have three basic options: - ChasMark
"1. We can accept Jewish rule and all that implies for our futures (or lack thereof). - ChasMark
"2. We can cast aside our cultural tendencies toward individualism and attempt to cultivate our ethnic cohesiveness to a level which allows us to compete effectively with Jews for resources and power (essentially we can stop being Europeans and become pseudo-Jews). - ChasMark
"3. We can remove Jews from the game. There are different ways to do this, but the most common strategy historically has been to expel them from within your borders. Other solutions have involved restricting the rights of Jews (in terms of political, economic and social rights) and treating them as non-citizen aliens. The method by which Jews are removed from the “game” is a question that different societies will have to answer for themselves. - ChasMark
"I any event, unless one is willing to accept Jewish rule and the near term extinction of one’s own race, any other choice is going to be “anti-Semitic” by definition because it is going to involve strategies which seek to undermine and roll back Jewish power and interests. Whether we seek to adopt Jewish strategies and “out-Jew” the Jews at their own game, or we seek to simply remove... more... - ChasMark
"The solution to this problem is not going to come in the form of elections or peaceful demonstrations. It is going to come from people rising up and physically removing Jewish hands from the levers of power. This must be done across the board from economic, political and social institutions, particularly from the mass media." - ChasMark
I would add to Bob's comment: Jews are willing & able to take far greater risks than non-Jews because 1. history of events has demonstrated that they will frequently not be held accountable for their financial missteps. Bank bailout is a case in point: high-flying financiers took huge risks with other people's money. When it went sour, taxpayers bailed them out. -- When the US financial... more... - ChasMark

Danaa showed me a lot of the core racism that is Israel. I really was unaware of the level of Israeli racism. It's good to hear from the insiders. Also Avi ( or Avi g) had a lot of details about the inner workings of ISrael. He knew good details about USS liberty. See thread for details. - Chu_

Ukrainian extremists working for an oligarch may have shot MH17 while aiming for Putin's plane | Sic Semper Tyrannis : -
"For some time, the veteran journalist Robert Parry has been suggesting that what U.S. intelligence analysts know about the shooting down of the Malaysian flight MH17 on 17 July does not mesh with official claims that there is unambiguous evidence that the insurgent forces were responsible. Yesterday, he claimed that U.S. intelligence analysts now believe that the atrocity was likely to have been the result of a deliberate attempt by extremists in the new regime in Kiev to shoot down a Russian plane.According to Parry: 'Some independent analyses of the initial evidence from the crash site suggest the jetliner may have been destroyed by an air-to-air attack, not by an anti-aircraft missile fired from the ground. - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
"Yet, the working hypothesis of the U.S. intelligence analysts is that a Ukrainian military Buk battery and the jetfighters may have been operating in collusion as they hunted what they thought was a Russian airliner, possibly even the plane carrying President Vladimir Putin on a return trip from South America, the source said.' (See .) - ChasMark
The notion that elements in the Kiev regime would deliberately target an airliner, unless the object was to blame it on the insurgents, has always seemed somewhat difficult to believe. However, according to Parry the finger of suspicion points to 'more extremist factions, possibly even one of the Ukrainian oligarchs who have taken an aggressive approach toward prosecuting the war against the ethnic Russian rebels in the east.' - ChasMark
"And I do not think that one can simply rule out the possibility that some of the 'extremist factions' are crazy enough to do what Parry suggests U.S. analysts think they may have done." - ChasMark
TTG, a regular participant at Sic Semper Tyrannis has offered this analysis of the air-to-air attack scenario: - ChasMark
May or may not be true, but that was my first suspicion....and usually my gut instinct is right.. And I can see the world thru my crystal ball now that my wife has windexed it. - American
The russian separatist had nothing to gain from shooting down the airliner. To say that they did it to draw in russia or get that support makes no sense either....and neither does the spin that Russia sent them missile to use. Only the new chocolate king of the Ukraine had anything to gain by creating an incident that he hoped would get him even more support from USA-NATO and etc.. - American
That was kind of your wife, but I gotta say, it's not that hard to know what really happened: just take what US gov & media say, and believe the opposite. Do windexed crystal balls turn images upside down the way teaspoons do? - ChasMark

from Chas' link: "When Israel was meek, it stressed the heroism of the Warsaw ghetto. Now, with reassuringly powerful armed forces, the focus is more on victimhood. Schools teach that “we need a strong army because the world hates us,” says Dan Porat, a professor of Jewish education in Jerusalem." - pepsi

Why did India block the first global trade reform in 19 years? The country stunned WTO negotiators by its last-minute objections to a deal to cut red tape and reduce tariffs.
"WHAT DROVE INDIA’S RESISTANCE? It came down to how tightly WTO members will be regulated on food stockpiling and subsidies for farmers. India has a 73 million-ton stockpile of rice and wheat, and periodically dumps some of the surplus into international markets, decreasing global prices, according to the Financial Times." - pepsi
"HOW DOES INDIA EXPLAIN THIS? India “cannot put to risk the livelihoods of its poor farmers,” the Times of India described Finance Minister Arun Jaitley as telling negotiators." - pepsi
"WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? Analysts in the Western press are pessimistic about the impact this will have on the WTO. Reuters writes: India's veto may be the beginning of the end for the WTO. Trade experts say that if the WTO's 20-year-old rulebook does not evolve, more and more trade will be governed by new regional agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which will have their own rules and systems of resolving disputes. That could lead to a fragmented world of separate trade blocs." - pepsi
The WTO has been regulating for world trade and various interest elitely and unfairly in mamny cases. But the Trans-Pacific Partnership is going to be much much worse---its designed to give the small 'international class' control 'of' countries---their power will be 'boarderless' in relation to their own interest but will create boarders and 'blocks' of countries in a batle of slash and burn of other competitor blocks of countries. - American

Hollywood to Homs: Jesuits on the frontiers | National Catholic Reporter
"there are a few challenges being a Jesuit with a production company in Hollywood. "Why are you here?" is a common question I try not to take too personally. Catholics and non-Catholics will casually ask, "Shouldn't you be working in a church? Teaching in a school? Working on a mission abroad?" Those are all fantastic callings, and I've been privileged in my 30 years as a Jesuit to work in parishes, teach, and serve abroad. - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
"But in today's world where the average American consumes 60 hours of content each week across TV, radio, online and mobile, I think there's ample cause for Jesuits to take on the Hollywood frontier. We Jesuits have a long history of working as artists, poets, writers, dancers, musicians, and directors, all to bring people closer to God in unexpected, creative ways. I see my work as a natural continuation of what my predecessors have been doing for 450 years." - ChasMark

What the German people confronted, and how they attempted to remedy the problem --
MAY 1933: QUOTE: Dr. Hans Luther, German ambsasador to this country.

" Prejudice against the Jews, he said, was due to their tendency toward movements of a communistic nature, and to the fact that nearly fifty percent of the government officails have been Jews, although the total Jewish population was only one percent. He denied emphatically that there had been any “atrocities”. BREAK - ChasMark
JULY 2014: Paul Eisen: "My fellow Jews, Israelis and others, look at what's happening in Gaza, then look at what's happening in Paris and then look to your dreadful behaviour and reflect on that age-old Jewish trait, that ethnic flaw if you like, by which we Jews always go too far. Always, we fail to look into the eyes of the other to see that they've had enough. Always, we never see... more... - ChasMark
back to Luther: QUOTE: " He asserted that limitation of Jewish influence in Germany was being conducted with the greatest possible consideration toward the old native Jewish families who, he said; had proven themselves good Germans and indicated that it was directed against the Eastern European Jews who had overflooded the country since the War. . . . - ChasMark
"MONOPOLY IN PROFESSIONS Dr. Luther described the misery of German students who had to wait for years after graduating in order to obtain positions in the professions. Even before the War, he said, the legal and medical professions in Berlin, Frankfurt and other large cities were almost monopolized by certain people whose activities the German people could not consider as German."

Israel Right or Wrong - Phil Giraldi, Jul 29 2014 The Unz Review
"It is a familiar scenario. Israeli is killing hundreds of civilians, mostly women and children, and the Zionist propaganda machine is working overtime. The President of the United States reaffirms America’s solemn pledge to protect Israel at all costs and justifies the carnage by stating that Israel has a right to defend itself. Secretary of State John Kerry repeats the message and the US House and Senate pass unanimously American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) drafted resolutions affirming the same. - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lies repeatedly and the US media gives him a bully pulpit to spread his disinformation about what is occurring, including the propaganda cartoon depicted above explaining why he had to use artillery and bombs to level a residential district, killing nearly 100 civilians in what was described as a “heinous massacre.” - ChasMark
The mainstream media obligingly toes the line, depicting something like a battle between equals pitting the Israeli Army (IDF) against Hamas militants, obfuscating the essential asymmetry of a conflict that has killed more than 1,000 Palestinians civilians. - ChasMark
"A very large percentage of the commentators on television and radio as well the authors of mainstream print media opinion are American and Israeli Jews, to include a piece by Michael Oren, former Israeli Ambassador to the US and current CNN “expert,” entitled “Israel Must be Permitted to Crush Hamas” as well as the featured appearances by Prime Minister Netanyahu on national television." - ChasMark

Top comment: "I'd like to ask Hannity what he would do if the US government decided to round up 1.5 to 2 million people like him, steal their land, bulldoze their houses, arbitrarily murder them, confine them to a 125 square mile area, deny them the essentials of life like clean water, medicine, food, electricity, civil rights, human rights, etc? Would he fight back by whatever means available, or would he agree that the government was doing the right thing and just accept his fate?" - Sean McBride
