  • Young US Jews Write 700 Letters of Solidarity to Ahed Tamimi

      " It was revealed later that the Palestinian girl was upset after soldiers had shot her 14-year-old cousin in the head with a rubber bullet a day earlier.",

      How dare this 17 year old proto-terrorist get upset with Israeli soldiers just because one of them righteously shoots a rubber coated bullet into her cousins brain.

      It is a delusion shared by many Palestinians that they have a right to protest and resist Jewish heavy handedness. In fact they don't have any such rights as they are not human in that sense that entitles them to human rights. Human rights are not homo sapiens sapiens rights.

      In no nation is it possible to extend human rights to 100% of the homo sapiens population therein. In some countries the proportion entitled to human rights may be as low as 5% (eg Honduras) in others the maximum may not exceed 80% (eg The UK & US). Members of homo sapiens may forfeit any
      entitlement to human rights

      Fofeiture may result from their supporting dissident politics, from being unlawfully indigenous and therefore being in the way of progress that will benefit US based corporations and members of the ruling oligarchy or because of being of an obnoxious ethnic group (eg Rohinga) or because the marginal cost of extending human rights to them is simply too high.

      In the case of the Palestinians an irreconcilable conflict between their interests and those of the Jews as soon as the Zionists decided in about 1880 to settle Palestine and expel the present occupants. The ethnic cleansing of 700,000 non-Jewish Palestinians was not optional as without it the new state could not be majority Jewish and thus could not pretend to be democratic. Now that ISrael is getting ready to annex the West Bank and Gaza the non-Jewish Palestinians therein present a new demographic problem. The only question is how Israel will choose between more ethnic cleansing and a final solution to the Palestinian question.

      Those who support Israel should realize that their continued support requires acceptance of one of these two scenarios.

  • Colonial Slow Genocide: Palestinian Leader Abbas asks Britain for "Balfour" Apology

      Shame on you Juan Cole how dare you contradict the Zionist narrative about Palestine propagated by Israel after 1948 and believed by Americans and most citizens of the Christian World.

      Of course this narrative is a fiction but it is improper to contradict it after it has been believed for so long.

  • Huckabee's virtual Genocide: erases Palestinians from West Bank, declares it "Israel"
    • Actually Huckabee is right, what Israel is doing in the West Bank is not occupation but colonization and the relationship between the colonists and the indigenes is no worse than could be expected.
