Summer Heats up Jewish Wars

Israel’s Sports Ministry acquired authority regarding nomination of rabbis Heating up under the unyielding summer sun, Israel is facing a new wave of inner Jewish wars, this time in clear preparation for the October 2013 elections.

Warsaw Ghetto, Israel Ghetto

A new ghetto is rising, a phoenix emerging from the Holocaust ashes… Ghetto Warsaw Uprising and Israel There is no “Holocaust Day” in Israel; officially, the country commemorates the “Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day.” Outside Israel, the “heroism” part of the name is often overlooked; yet, within the electronics and cement walls surrounding the Zionist […]

Zuckerstein

The much-ballyhooed Facebook IPO—how surprised should we be now to hear charges that the whole thing was pretty much an insider trading scam from the get-go? As we learn here: Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., JP Morgan Chase & Co. and other underwriters along with Facebook Inc. were sued by investors who claimed they […]

Jews must clean their own house first

Israeli and Jewish hypocrisy is so brazen that it probably has no match under the sun. Jewish and Zionist circles never stop accusing other countries of harboring “hate” against Jews. Jewish propaganda arms, such as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Simon Wiesenthal Center as well as the Israeli foreign ministry recently criticized several countries, […]

CrossTalk: Farewell Israel? (ft. Norman Finkelstein)

Norman Finkelstein’s new book on the American Jewish community has been both widely praised and criticized by influential writers. So is the American-Jewish romance with Israel coming to an end? Are the American Jews known for their liberal views distancing themselves from Israel? Or is it simply an overstatement? Do they support the current Israeli […]

Sins of Our Fathers

“We dance round in a ring and suppose/ But the secret sits in the middle and knows.” ~ Robert Frost. Victors’ celebrations harbor shadows that lurk in the soul as revelers dance in remembrance, burying in laughter the suffering screams of those displaced and destroyed, furiously hiding   forgotten faces framed in fear from mocking the […]

Shapira Neighborhood Kindergarten | After a Molotov Cocktail Attack

Terror in Tel Aviv

what international media purposely ignores… On April 27, 2012, five Molotov Cocktails were thrown in Shapira Neighborhood, a poor area in Tel Aviv’s south. One of them hit a kindergarten, where children were sleeping (see picture); the others hit private homes. In one case, the terrorists opened the window of a house—where people were sleeping—and […]

Who Chose The Chosen People, Anyway?

Dedicated to the long-suffering Palestinians and Iranians who have been sidelined by the United Nations in favour of the Nuclear Apartheid State of Zionist Israel in the most blatant exercise in International Double Standards that our world has ever known. This video demonstrates that the United States is not a democracy, it is a bribeocracy, […]

Chosen by Whom? Video of Kabbalistic Cursing Ceremony in Cemetery

If God answers prayers, does Satan do likewise? It would perhaps make for a lively, spirited theological debate, and doubtless are those who would argue the case in the affirmative (presumably convinced – through personal experience perhaps? – of the correctness of their view), for of course worldly princes of darkness invariably manage to reap […]

In Defense of Günter Grass

Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most, that has made it possible for evil to triumph” (Haile Selassie).   Have our Jewish sisters and brothers forgotten their humiliation? Have […]

Circumcision of Boys – for Jews only?

Göran Rosenberg (1) puts forward two ethnocentric arguments in an article published in the Swedish daily newspaper, SvD. It is the final article in a discussion on circumcision. The first is that the proposed ban on circumcision, “… targets, with great precision, mainly the Jewish minority in Sweden …” But surely Göran it affects Swedish Muslims […]

Jewish food fight (at Park Slope Co-op)

In my article last month, Zionist Bullying in the West Coast Co-op Movement, I described moves within the co-op movement on the American west coast to undermine the proposed boycott of Israeli goods (Knott 2012). These manouevres have a history. Ten years ago, San Francisco’s Rainbow food co-op stopped selling Israeli food as a protest […]

Permission to examine “Jewishness”

In-fighting is characteristic of progressive movements.  On the right things are much easier.  They want a “survival-of-the-fittest” society, small government, low taxes, no safety- net, no brown-skinned people crossing our borders,  the right to unlimited profits un-hampered by any oversight or regulations, the right to claim foreign natural resources and to take advantage of cheap […]

I’m So Glad We’ve Got Gilad

The attack on Gilad Atzmon by the UK Palestine Community Network, relayed on Ali Abunimah’s blog, is a depressing reminder that an influential section of Palestinian opinion has accepted the narrative about Israel-Palestine preferred by most (supposed) pro-Palestinian Jews. That is, of course their right. There is an argument for saying that Zionism is a […]

Why Not Jewish Power?

It is constantly bleated from certain quarters that the term ‘Jewish power’ is racist. How can you attribute power to a heterogeneous group like Jews? But let’s think a moment about the use of the word ‘power’. Does anyone have a problem with us talking about ‘the power of the media’? Or, in some countries, […]

Let’s be Fair

My heart sinks when I hear that phrase, ‘let’s be fair.’ ‘Let’s be fair, George Bush had no alternative but to smash Afghanistan and Iraq.’ ‘Let’s be fair, what would you have done faced with that massive hostile gathering at Amritsar on 13th April 1919 or that dangerous looking civil-rights march in Londonderry on 30 January […]
