This turnaround of American Jews who at one time would not
listen to any criticism of Israel began to happen a few years ago –

There may also be a good deal of funding involved for Israel here
from American Jews?

American Jews who perhaps still will not listen to the criticism may
begin to listen to this new movement. Really wish them well as a
lot of help is needed on this issue.

Any bets on how long it will take President Swamp Gas and the GOP noise machine to declare this group anti-Semetic ?

In some ways we are sinking deeper in to the swamp. And then you see something like this! Hope!

This is what progressive Jewish Group are up against.
From the following article:
'Opening the ‘Peace to Prosperity Workshop’ (in Bahrain) Kushner delivered a speech and improbable vision of the transformation of the West Bank and Gaza into a capitalist investor’s paradise, where profits would be so great and the banks and big business so unfettered that ‘money can trickle down to the people.’
Good one, Jared! ROFL…

This all really isn’t about being Jewish, it’s about being inhuman.

Right wingers, regardless of their country of origin, rarely qualify as ‘human’

It is easy to see which Presidential hopefuls are going to be even handed with Palestinians:

Really beautiful as they bring light into our dysfunctional world. This is living up to the notion of social justice. May they retain their youth for the rest of their lives.

Great work by Rep Tlaib. We’ll see which, if any, Congressional reps accept her offer to officially visit the West Bank in August.

Whaaaa? Israel? Brutal occupation? You would think the invading armies were victims of terrorism from how most speak of it. Yet just a few decades ago they moved into Palestine, uninvited, using extreme military force, and they have been spreading like an aggressive malignant cancer tumor ever since. no country on Earth has violated more International laws and broken more UN treaties than Israel, a government which is basically the closest thing to Hitlers regime since his defeat. Are we allowed to tell the truth here, or is noticing crimes against humanity now considered some form of antisemitism?

An important development.

As Israel is the main motive force behind attacking Iran, which could lead to:

  1. a global recession as 30% of the world’s oil goes thru the Straight of Hormuz leading to the collapse of the derivatives market of 10’s of $ Trillions…
  2. Massive amounts of burning oil bringing us to climate tipping points much earlier…
  3. Potential of starting WWIII as Russian and China have allied themselves with Iran…
  4. Nuclear winter. Mass death. Climate catastrophe won’t matter…

I’ll wager they don’t have much traction with the numerous duel citizen Zionists in US Congress and Senate …

That tells us a lot. With the exception of Eric Swalwell, they are solidly in the “Israel Can Do No Wrong” camp. They are either blind or bought.

Greed is high on the list as well. They, and we, emulate one another’s high aspirations.of wealth. Sick, isn’t it?

They should have held the debates in Jerusalem, now that it is the official capitol city of the US’ parent company.

Phred –

And that’s why I think we all have such trouble in believing how
vile and evil they will be –

None of us would bother with the machinations they go through to
protect their efforts to gain wealth the criminal way and control over others.
Certainly, without doubt, it must always be done by creating harm of some kind.

‘Trump Heights’ on the occupied Golan Heights would be another place the debates could be held…not…
