  1. According to the Zionists, evangelicals, and US leaders in the White House and Congress, Palestinians (and Muslims), cannot resist, protest, or make demands, when they are occupied, shocked and awed, blockaded, have their lands stolen, homes demolished, families killed by Western and Israeli bombs, and if they do, they are referred to as “terrorists”.

    “Never again” is for the Jews, but when it comes to the Muslims, it is “again and again”. The Palestinians have every right to be angry, and disappointed, by Trump’s back stabbing policies, and perhaps this is a reality check that the US will NEVER be honest broker, and they have to re-think their plans to get their statehood, freedom, and lands back. The rest of the civilized world, must support them now.
    Why is that scoundrel in law quiet now? Jared has done his bit for the motherland, and Netanyahu must be thrilled.

    • Thank you for telling the truth.It just breaks my heart knowing what is being done to SO many innocent lives with the help of American weapons.These people ‘ our government ‘have NO shame.They go to bed every night not having to worry that a bomb could destroy their home and kill the people they love…..

    • America imposes its prejudices on the world.
      Consider that 100 years ago, the Arabs were the heroes of the American media, thanks to Lowell Thomas’ romantic reporting of Lawrence’s Arab rebel army fighting the Turks. Jews, on the other hand, were widely despised as radical conspirators and unassimilable aliens because of the flood of rural Eastern European Jews fleeing the Czar straight into US ghettoes. If you’d taken a poll, maybe people would have said the Lebanese Arabs immigrating into Michigan were better Americans than the Jews.

      Yet decades before that flood, Jews were relatively respected because that generation of Jews were middle-class Germans, such that a Jew served as Confederate Secretary of State.

      So the “race” that creates problems in the USA right now is coded terrorist and radical and impossible to assimilate, and the one that (1) contributes to our capitalism with the least hassle or (2) stays in its exotic homeland so our media can spin romantic yarns about it, is considered worthy of human rights in a very abstract sense.

      The Zionists figured this out and spent generations shaping the media narrative to seize the mantle of humanity away from Arabs. They had the choice of sharing that mantle instead as fellow Semites, but Jabotinsky admitted all those years ago that the goal was to do to the Arabs what the Americans had done to the Indians. That Civilizing Settlers vs. Barbaric Redskins narrative was a natural sell in America.

  2. Why aren’t we investigating Israeli meddling in US politics?

    Russia collusion farce – true or untrue, is the ultimate in “sock-puppetry” to distract.

    • Notice how there is no media hysteria over Kushner trying to get the vote on Israeli settlements blocked. No mention of him acting as an agent of a Foreign Government.
