President Rivlin: Time to admit that Israel is a sick society that needs treatment
"The time has come to honestly admit that Israel is a sick society, with an illness that demands treatment, President Reuven Rivlin said at the opening session on Sunday of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities’ conference on ‘From Hatred of the Stranger to Acceptance of the Other’." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
Seriously, they aren't ever going to admit to the sick parts of Jewish culture and we have all seen that it isn't just confined to Jews in Israel, its been supported by Jews from around the world. Its bigger than just Israel. The nazis facing hanging for war crimes went to the gallows still doing their 'Heil Hitler" - American

Interesting. You wonder why these corporate takeovers are so expensive but they often will consolidate power for the few. so a billion dollar buyout (like youtube 1.65 billion) would give control to the oligarchs. Control the media message and control how people think and behave. very 1984, but effective if you want to control people. - Chu_

It is a mistake for WASP to assume that most Jews practice any kind of 'gentlemen's agreements'.

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. It is a obsession. I honestly dont know how they stand it, for any normal person this mental identity addiction would be like gorging yourself on some food to the point where it makes you psychically sick and you start throwing up.

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_

I was at a NIAC conference last year. The saddest thing I heard, and this from a graceful, even elegant Iranian-American woman whose family prospers in US, was, "It is very hard to leave the land of your birth and the place where your family is." I wonder if most Americans think about that -- how hard it is to transplant yourself. The generation of Iranians in USA today is the first time in history that Iran has experienced mass migration. Yet Jews do this without much thought; Jews are a migratory people. - ChasMark

Jews in Germany are exempt from military service. Historically along with the masses dislike of Jews went the special perks to the Jews from rulers and governments going back to the 1400's.

There are a lot of 'patterns' you can follow in the tribe. I have outlined enough of them previously not to have to repeat the history. - American
We discussed before whether the Berlin Jews are trying to import more Jews for business and economic networking purposes. The Berlin Jews setting up this appeal to Isr Jews though may be just another example of Jews making money off Jews---a business enterprise where they charge fees for 'helping' Isr Jews immigrate to Germany. - American

"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

As a result, Chelli began harrassing phone calls to Le Corre’s elderly father. In one, he told the father... more... - Sean McBride
"Chelli later called Le Corre to “offer condolences” and suggested that he and Le Corre could band together to make money off the story. He records all the calls and airs them on YouTube or the net for the delectation of his fellow pro-Israel psychopaths." - Sean McBride
"Is Chelli engaging in this behavior alone or does he have support? If so, are his supporters individuals or associated with official sources. Does the Israeli government or security services have a hand in his activities? This isn’t a far-fetched question. A French national has violated serious laws and Israel refuses to take any action. It leads one to wonder: is it just police incompetence? Or do the Israeli police tacitly support his agenda? Or do even more powerful political interests support him?" - Sean McBride

Israel’s water war crimes | TheHill - http://thehill.com/blogs...
"There is a war going on and it long predates Israel’s summer Gaza onslaught. It is a war on water, and it runs deep. For the last decade, Israel has been carrying out a systemic and willful campaign to deny Palestinians access to clean water. Though Israel’s campaign to restrict water access has yet to make the news, rights organizations are pushing the Palestinian Authority to take the issue to court, so the matter could well make headlines in the coming months. While the PA has been debating whether or not to accede to the International Criminal Court, increasing documentation of war crimes may push their hand." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"Under international law, deliberate targeting of civilian infrastructure is a war crime, and as of 2010, water and sanitation were enshrined as basic human rights. Israel has blatantly and systemically been denying these rights." - Sean McBride
"Through growing documentation and awareness, Israel’s systemic campaign against Palestinian water can be seen for what it is: a comprehensive violation of one of the most basic human rights. It consists of a two-pronged approach: the visible mass destruction of water and sanitation infrastructure, reinforced by invisible policies of closure and occupation, siege and confiscation that... more... - Sean McBride

Palestinian Centre for Human Rights Calls for Full and Immediate End to the Illegal Israeli Blockade of Gaza. By Palestinian Centre for Human Rights http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-pal...
"The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) is gravely concerned over the continuity of the Israeli-imposed closure on the Gaza Strip for the eighth consecutive year and dissatisfied by the mechanism of the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip that was declared by the UN Middle East Envoy. Moreover, PCHR is concerned that this mechanism would institutionalize the Israeli closure that has been imposed since 2007. PCHR calls for fully and immediately lift the Israeli closure as it constitutes a form of collective punishment that is prohibited under the international humanitarian law. Ending the closure includes eliminating all restrictions imposed on the freedom of movement of persons and goods, including imports and exports, to and from the Gaza Strip." - weareone
open the damn sea port to Gaza already. Have UN inspectors full time. Gazans have so much rebuilding to do at this point. The Prison Camp is run by Israelis - they are torturing 2 million people.

Americans Continue to Say a Third Political Party Is Needed http://www.gallup.com/poll...
3rd party.png
PRINCETON, NJ -- A majority of U.S. adults, 58%, say a third U.S. political party is needed because the Republican and Democratic parties "do such a poor job" representing the American people. These views are little changed from last year's high. Since 2007, a majority has typically called for a third party. - Chu_
Chu, you mentioned a Tea Party 2.0. which may be a good idea, but I'm not very hopeful that having an additional party or parties will effect significant changes.

' imo, the electorate must take responsibility for causing the problem because we were not attentive. ' I agree in a sense, but the media is a corporation.

Well, if the approval rate is 13%, I wonder why they continue to vote the same people into office? 68% of Americans would like a national issue referendum, 75% are in favor of term limits, 63% are in favor of absolving the Electoral College and 79% support limits on campaign funding. http://www.gallup.com/poll........<<Americans... more... - weareone

Unfortunately, when it is pointed out that third parties already exist and garner few of the votes, no one has an answer as to how that can be changed.

And that is not political reality. It is human condition reality. - Danaa
Hi Danaa. Yes, third parties are not new and over the years I've voted for a few third party candidates, but if there's interest in forming an alternative party that attracts larger numbers, I wonder how many are willing to do the grassroots organizational work that this requires.

UK’s home secretary urged to act on Zionist threat http://www.presstv.ir/detail...
Galloway urged British Home Secretary Theresa May to do so in a letter on Tuesday, saying the same measures used against terrorists must be applied to Zionist extremists. - Chu_
The British lawmaker wrote the letter after a firebomb attack last week on Rabbi Ahron Cohen, an active campaigner against Zionism, outside his home in Salford, a metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester.

Cohen responded to the attack by saying that “If everybody resorted to violent activity, the world would be a very terrible place to live in.

Israel’s Mossad Recruits New Spy Generation With Website, Video - Businessweek - http://www.businessweek.com/news...
"Israel’s legendary Mossad agency is courting a new generation of spies through social media, a Homeland-derived video and an 18-page application to be filled out by hand." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"The 83-second clip presents a blond agent resembling actress Claire Danes who leaves her son on the beach with a radio-controlled drone toy while she penetrates the computer network room in a nearby Tel Aviv office tower. “It’s not child’s play,” she intones. “It opens doors.”" - Sean McBride
"Viewers are invited to click on the Mossad home page in Hebrew, English, French, Russian and Arabic. Links carry labels such as “Engineering Management,” “Overseas,” “Farsi,” “Satellites” and “Thinking outside the box.” Each leads to the same form and a separate 8-page questionnaire for one’s spouse." - Sean McBride
