BDS is irrelevant. Oh, really?

“BDS is irrelevant.” Oh, really? What maddens Zionists most is that they cannot control civil society like they can pull the strings of the spineless political élite.

Palestinians’ Limited Understanding of Truth

The concept of “Truth” is a great divider. On the one side are the Palestinians (Muslims and Christians), and on the other the Jews, in Israel as well as in the “diaspora.” The Palestinian, or non-Jewish, concept of truth is limited by the radical and fanatically held notion that a statement, claim, or historical account […]

Help prod the ICC into action over Israel’s illegal ‘settlements’

The Palestinian leadership won’t do it – will you?

Redemption: A Challenge to World Jewry

This is what a normal Palestinian thinks and sounds like.

Atzmon Says “Anachronism,” Settler Flees

Highly entertaining There were no Palestinians in ancient Palestine but no Ashkenazim either and apparently the Romans were not Italians…. Confusing.
