Israeli Settlers: Are They ‘Civilians’ or Legitimate Military Targets?

Are Israeli settlers in the West Bank technically speaking civilians? Or should they be regarded as military targets? My understanding of international law is that people have a right to resist occupation. This would not include killing innocent civilians, but do Israeli settlers, morally or legally, fit into that category? The Israeli government has offered […]

Israelis By Chance ‘Discover’ Gold Coins and Other Archaeological Treasures

It seems that Israelis are rather remarkably blessed with good fortune these days. Within a month of each other, two amazing archaeological discoveries have been uncovered in the Jewish state–not by means of an archaeological dig or excavation, but simply happened upon by chance, we are told.

Politically Corrupt and Pro-Israel–Do the Two Traits Go Together?

  One can’t help wondering: will Congress–when Benjamin Netanyahu comes nuzzling into Washington to deliver his next joint-session address–exceed the 29 standing ovations they lavished upon him back in 2011? Perhaps Las Vegas odds makers would care to lay odds on the matter? Although of course knowing the level of corruption, there’s little doubt of Congress members placing […]

Zionist Settlers Poison 13 Sheep–As US Jews Funnel Money into Nety’s Re-Election

Sometimes when you’re poring over the day’s news, two seemingly disconnected stories will sort of jump out at you, and a little bell will go off, “Hey!

The Shoe on the Other Foot: Suppose Hollywood Had Made a Comedy About the Assassination of the Israeli Prime Minister?

By Richard Edmondson The hypocrisy of Hollywood seems very much to keep pace with that of Washington and the mainstream media, although this should come as no surprise to anyone. Is it hard to imagine why Koreans would take offense at the film “The Interview,” a comedy about a supposed plot to assassinate Kim Jong-un, […]
