See what you can find on if non Jewish billionaires give money to the Lobby and Zios orgs or finance campaigns where they declare their funding is predicated on Israel support like Adelson. I've never heard of any. - American
Off the top of my head: Rupert Murdoch and Donald Trump. Look into their contributions to FIDF (Friends of the IDF), for instance. Murdoch's entire media empire has been devoted to propagandizing the cause of Likud Zionism. - Sean McBride

'' Off the top of my head: Rupert Murdoch and Donald Trump"...Sean)....Actually Murdoch's mother, Elizabeth Greene was from an Orthodox Jewish Family according to a in depth profile and investigative piece done on Murdoch years ago by Vanity Fair.

If his mother was in fact Jewish, Rupert Murdoch is Jewish in the ethnic sense by any reasonable standard. News Corp. has always been a militantly pro-Zionist and Likud Zionist op -- thus the endless Islamophobic rants on Fox News and in the New York Post. - Sean McBride
Some other things the article said was that Eliz Greene Murdoch was a nice woman very into charity works and nothing like Rupert and was sicken by the division in the family he had caused. It said Rupert was the ugly duckling and runt of the family and had a combative nature even with his family. I think Murdoch may have joined the 'tough zio Jews crowd" more out of that personal runt inferiority complex and too the money and financing contacts it brought him---more than any ideology from his mother. - American

Have I just been not looking or are more tribe critical sites like this one springing up? - American
not sure, but I found this site after we were talking with Sean & w.a.o. about dual citizens that serve in government. I didn't realize you could be a dual citizen, but apparently I was wrong. Although I recall that Indyk and Dermer have to renounce one citizenship to hold their post. - Chu_
Where do dual citizens pay taxes? Several people that I know were required to become citizens of Great Britain after they worked there for a number of years. They did not give up their USA citizenship, so they became dual citizens. What privileges come with dual citizenship? I recall that in 2009 many of my Iranian American friends voted in Iran's election. - ChasMark
American, not only more and more sites like this are fast trickling through, but the comment sections on israel articles are getting more and more critical of israel - more than that, some of these commentators are doing their own anti-israel moniker images: a lotta stuff using symbols like the isreali flag with dollar signs or painted with dripping red, Netanyahu with horns, Netenyahu kissing ISIS man on lips - lol etc. - Taxi

The Beautiful West & The Beloved of God, by Michael Springate [Castellio] - Guernica Editions
"Elena and Mahfouz meet in Montreal in the spring of 2008. That summer, however, Mahfouz doesn't return from a trip to Cairo, and his father is picked up and held indefinitely for unknown charges on undisclosed evidence. No longer in contact with each other, Elena and Mahfouz must separately come to terms with their historical situation, preparing for a future shaped by forces they struggle to understand." | - ChasMark from Bookmarklet

Israel, the US Congress and treason...http://www.presstv.com/detail...
"Question: What is a traitor? Answer: One who is not loyal to and betrays his or her own country. On that basis, and in the simple logic of commonsense, there is surely a strong case for saying that those men and women who are elected to the US Congress and put the interests of a foreign power (Israel) before those of their own country are traitors and, because they are endangering America’s own best interests by doing so, should be charged with treason. Unfortunately it’s not that simple because of Section 3 of Article 3 of the United States Constitution. It defines treason as specific actions, namely “levying War against [the people of the United States], or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” - weareone
"Strictly interpreted that seems to mean that those in Congress who do the Zionist lobby’s bidding and by doing so endanger America’s own best interests are protected and can’t be charged with treason because the foreign power they are assisting is not a declared enemy. (Some will no doubt say that Israel did levy war against America when it attacked the USS Liberty during the Six Days... more... - weareone
Our narrow definition of treason is so old it doesn't reflect the current realities --it needs to be expanded...but congress would have to do that and in doing it a number of politicians would open themselves to be indicted for treason.. - American
I agree. I'm with Hart until he says <<….. Is there not a case for saying that because those in Congress who support Israel right or wrong are effectively giving aid and comfort to America’s Arab and other Muslim enemies they should be charged with treason.>> Why convolute the truth by labeling the Arabs/ Muslims the enemy in order to make a case for traitors/treason? They are not our enemies. Why not speak the truth about enemies domestic and foreign? - weareone
If they are not considered an enemy, they are certainly not a benefit to the US. What start up nation do you underwrite for that gives you little to nil in return? Is it that one day they are going to bring us back treasure and new acquisitions? What I mean is if they are some shadow colony of the US, then where's the return on investment? There is none and we'll never see repayment. We're a big bag of sugar and they've poked a few holes in the bag to fall in their proximity. - Chu_
Then there's the bogus argument that we are correcting history and all the bad things that happened to Jews, and the USA is the hand that will save Jews. If that be the case, why aren't we working toward helping the American Indians for a new state, because surely we've screwed them and only helped Jews throughout the last century. - Chu_
- and further where's our thanks? The Jewish state spits in the face of our leader. What's that about. - Chu_
I think we may be saying the same thing Chu. If I'm reading him correctly, Hart seems to be saying that by giving aid to Israel we're somehow enabling an Arab/ Muslim enemy. I don't understand his point at the end. - weareone
wao, yes- I was carving my own path! But this is Gideon Levy"No American administration has received the spitting in its face as submissively as this one. No other ally in the world, including the European powers, has dared to act so explicitly against the United States’ positions. " - Chu_
yes, Levy's spot on. - weareone
He is saying at the end that congressional quislings do whatever Israel wants, and that stirs up the Arab world creating more strife and ultimately coming back to bite the US interests. I think he is saying dual nationalist congress should be charged with treason. But he could word it better. Sounds half-baked. - Chu_
ok, it sounds like he doesn't want to speak the whole truth which is interesting because I read his books a while ago-"Zionism-the Real Enemy of the Jews"-and I don't recall any hesitation in the books. - weareone
well, could be the technique of let the reader draw the conclusion. At least they'll think more about it! - Chu_

Connecticut arm of million-strong church votes to shun occupation profiteers...http://electronicintifada.net/content...
"The United Church of Christ in the US state of Connecticut has declared its support for the Palestinian-led campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel. A BDS resolution approved by delegates to the annual gathering of the church’s Connecticut conference follows similar moves by its followers in New York, Northern California and in the Central Pacific and Central Atlantic regions. As a result, church bodies have been urged to divest their holdings in companies profiting from Israeli occupation in Palestine, including Caterpillar, Motorola, Hewlett-Packard, G4S and Veolia." - weareone
"The United Church of Christ has around one million members across the US. Activists in the United Church of Christ Palestine Israel Network (UCCPIN) are scheduled to propose measures to support BDS at the church’s general synod in Cleveland, Ohio, in June next year." - weareone
"If the UCC divests from contractors with the Israeli occupation, it will be the fourth national church body in the United States to do so, following divestments by the Quaker Friends Fiduciary Corporation in 2012, the Mennonite Central Committee in 2013 and the Presbyterian Church (USA) in June this year." Also in June, a board on pension and health benefits with the United Methodist Church divested its shares in G4S, a British-Danish contractor with Israel’s prisons and occupation forces."--end quote - weareone
good news. The soil against occupation and land grabs is firming up in USA. No more zio weeds to pollute the soil. about time. - Chu_
Good! One of the biggest benefits I see to the various churches actions is that it spreads out to all their members---changes their views on Israel to what Israel really is ..it also makes them perk up and wise up when they hear our politicans spouting their support for Israel in the face of what they now know. - American
And when one takes a moral stand, it may pressure the others to respond. The influence and power of churches to shift the dynamic against Israel is, imo, huge. - weareone
And it's surprising for all the talk that northerners make about being progressives, they support an apartheid Jonestown that robs the Arabs of their property. But let's continue to elect People like Chuck Shumer to office. He's a real honest guy. - Chu_
I think that Shumer may also hold dual Israeli- American citizenship. Here's a small list of other Israeli citizens who hold key US government positions. http://www.presstv.com/detail... Sean, I was wondering if you would be able to compile a more complete list that includes Congress? After a short search, I didn't come up with much that seemed complete. - weareone
wao. I know that Amb. Ron Dermer and others have to renounce their Israeli citizenship. But here's a facebook post I found [List of Politicians with Israeli Dual Citizenship] https://www.facebook.com/notes... - Chu_
sean, how do you mark this up? i.e. Mark Weinberger, dual citizen, Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development for Public Affairs - Chu_
Thanks, Chu-I saw that list, but I was wondering if there's a way to compile an updated list. I think that one's from 2011, before the 2012 congressional elections, so it might not have all current congressional members. I'm thinking that a list would be very helpful to circulate before the upcoming elections. - weareone
wao. it should be accessible public information that our media should provide it citizens. but we all know how that goes. - Chu_

I don't get this wearone. Are you saying Boxer is a Dual citizen?or Feingold? that's just highly unlikely. I can believe ity about Schumer because I believe Schumer has no known boundaries to his supiness and love of power. His principles are probably limited to accepting that earth is round. Well, as long as it benefits him. Hover the years he has even assumed the look of corruptness. It's like a reverse Dorian Grey. - Danaa
Danaa, as I mentioned, this list is unverified, so these are possible dual citizens. Regarding Boxer, she doesn't seem unlikely at all to me given her history of support for Israel.

The Israeli government is using its citizens scattered all over the world to try to manipulate international politics on behalf of Israeli interests -- that much is obvious. They comprise a single political network that transcends all conventional national boundaries. - Sean McBride

"In this one picture, one sees the difference between the Jew and the Gentile. He, the stark, raving maniac, and she, the horrified, confused non-jew trying to make sense of this barking dog.

One of the biggest differences I see between Gentile cultural and Jewish culture-----('if' we compare gentiles as a self interested tribe vr Jews as a self interested tribe)----- is that gentile self interest is not primarily based on 'hate' or totally destroying their competitors in their competitions for gain----whereas for Jews their self interest actions in whatever they seek to... more... - American
Eisen's question: Is this picture peculiarly Jewish? I don't think so. We've all seen gentiles behaving like raving maniacs, and we've all seen Jews accepting/questioning irrational behavior directed at them. If I were to attempt to pinpoint something "peculiarly Jewish," it would be that most Jews do not process the reality that they are just like everybody else, good, bad, indifferent. Jews are always victims and never causal agents. - ChasMark
"It also ties in with something else I've been wondering: How is it that the non-Jewish world has, for so often and for so long, found it impossible to deal with us Jews?" I guess by impossible, Eisen means difficult.

Jews cannot live a first world existence without commerce with gentiles. They dont have the numbers.Its math. 12 million Jews cant only do business among themselves and prosper to any degree. And without goys they'd be fighting among themselves and cheating each other instead of others. - American
German Jews were doing pretty well in Germany pre-WWI. Jews prospered in Italy for centuries -- Jews were among the wealthiest in many Italian city-states. The papacy protected Jews in Italy, and they were favorites of the wealthiest families. So -- they had a long history of "commerce with gentiles." that made Jews rich. - ChasMark

Interesting.

how schlomo sand ceased to be a jew - or did he? Atzmon http://www.gilad.co.uk/writing...
"Sand realises that the Zionist journey has come to an end and that ‘Israeli secularism’ is doomed. From an ethical and universal perspective Israel is at a dead end. Yet, he still fails to grasp that Israel is only part of the problem. More and more thinkers are now regarding Israel as a mere symptom of Jewish identity politics. More and more, commentators are becoming aware of a tribal ideological and spiritual continuum between Israel, Zionism, the so-called Jewish anti Zionists and the Left in general. It is no longer a secret that, like Zionists, Jewish ‘anti Zionists’ invest most of their political energy chasing the so-called ‘anti Semites’ – those who analyze Israeli and Zionist politics within the context of Jewish culture and philosophy." - Chu_
I am having a pissing contest with Mooser right now on MW that illustrates well I think the Jewish identity obsession' in non zionist religious Jews as well as the secular Jewish 'race' identity of the Zionist.

Judaism has been redefined as Zionism by the worldwide Jewish establishment itself during the last half century. Judaism is now synonymous with the ideology of Jewish ethnic nationalism and the policies and practices of the Israeli government. - Sean McBride
That's true, Sean. The majority of people in the world don't understand the difference between Judaism from Zionism and the majority of Jews have actively discouraged that differentiation and embraced Zionism with great zeal. - weareone
This is the main point: the Jewish religious establishment itself has deliberately erased all distinctions between Judaism and Zionism. If the Jewish religious establishment is not the lead authority on Judaism, then who is? According to these authorities, Judaism=Zionism. Ok. Got it. Judaism is all about Jewish ethnic nationalism. It is not a universalist religion like Christianity or Buddhism. - Sean McBride
I understand your point about the Jewish religious establishment, but if this poll is correct, "two-thirds of Jews do not belong to a synagogue, one-fourth do not believe in God", but many in the poll express an emotional attachment to Israel so that may also be playing a greater role. Here's another one to add to the list of how Jews define themselves: "In a surprising finding, 34... more... - weareone
Which supports the point that Jewishness is more about ethnocentrism and ethnic nationalism than about religion as most members of universalist religions understand religion. Religion in the Jewish tradition is strongly ethnocentric in character -- one might even argue that it is an expression of ethnocentrism. This is why it is easy for religious and secular Jews to be on the same page with regard to Zionism. - Sean McBride
I think 'Jewishness' relates more to tribal cohesion than religion, from the figures that are cited above. Even if i say I am an anti-Zionist Atheist Jew, I'm still Jewish. go figure. - Chu_

We discussed before whether the Berlin Jews are trying to import more Jews for business and economic networking purposes.

"David Cameron's envoy to the Gulf is to attack the government’s failure to condemn Israel’s settlement building on the West Bank. Sir Alan Duncan, a former international development minister, warns that Britain must speak out or risk “a serious long-term price” in the region. His comments come as MPs are poised to vote tomorrow to back calls for Britain to recognise Palestine as a state in its own right." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"In a speech at the Royal United Services Institute on Tuesday, Duncan will warn Cameron that groups such as Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) should not have disproportionate policy influence. “We need British Jews for the Conservative, Labour or other UK parties, not the Israeli lobby for any party,” he will say. “The time has come to make sure above any doubt that the funding of any party in the UK is clearly decoupled from the influence of the Israeli state.”" - Sean McBride

After Caste Lead (2009) & this summer's civilian bombing campaign of Gaza infrastructure, are American's watching this and slowly understanding who the aggressor is? How do people buy that Hamas is the aggressor anymore when they're contained within a 5 mile x 25 mile strip with basic military technology, as Israel is the one pushing them into the sea (not the other way around). - Chu_
Once understood, it's relatively easy to see how the Jewish State was founded on terrorism and have had a nonstop campaign (simmering occupation) to take over Palestinian towns, with the aim to transfer them to other Arab nations. Gaza is a refugee camp, not a terrorist haven of Hamas. - Chu_
Americans need to apply the model to their own state. Imagine all of the residents were pushed out of New Jersey to make way for a foreign group of bandits who overtook their towns and destroyed much of their family, their farms, etc. Surely Americans would form a resistance group and the neighboring States would empathize & align themselves with the beleaguered NJ residents. - Chu_

"In a testy ten-minute exchange on “Real Time” with television host Bill Maher and author Sam Harris, Hollywood actor Ben Affleck slammed the host for commenting that Islam is the only religion that acts like the “mafia.” Along with journalist Nicholas Kristof, Affleck argued that ascribing an entire religion based on the actions of the terrorist group Islamic State, was “gross” and “racist,” while Maher and Harris shot back that criticizing Islam “gets conflated with bigotry towards Muslims as people,” a ploy that others have used to build on anti-Muslim sentiment in the country." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

The Next Crisis - Part one » Golem XIV - Thoughts
The first thing we should bear in mind is that however it starts, the next crisis will be another debt-crisis like the current one. This is because debt is now the global currency and global financing mechanism. Once it starts, however, one thing will be very different from the last time – this time nearly all nations are already heavily indebted. Last time they were not. And this is what changes everything for the over-class. Contrary to the endless misinformation repeated at every juncture by austerity politicians and bankers alike, the debt load of most nations at the beginning of the present crisis was not already out of control before the banks blew up. - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
