Israel's right-wing government has apparently decided that the best way to stop global criticism of its flagrant human rights violations against the Palestinian people is not to stop committing them, but to silence and punish anyone who attempts to document its crimes.
Constitutionally “problematic”, the Entire Israeli Gov’t Suppression is Constitutionally “Problematic”
Being Virtuous apparently has the Intent to ‘break the spirit of Israeli soldiers and inhabitants.’
Apparently they are going to try to make an unconstitutional law constitutional. Sounds like wishful thinking. How can a country that supposedly has a free press have a law like this? It doesn’t add up.
Can’t have the world witness the “morality” of the most “moral” army in the world.
The ideology of fascism is racing across the globe like out-of-control wildfire. Dissent becomes a crime and resistance will be brutally punished. Steve Bannon, professional right-wing fascist and despicable human being, made sure on his ‘Victory Tour’ that no European country will be left untouched by the most depraved of ideologies. If there was a silver lining on the horizon somewhere I would tell you about it. I just don’t see one…
The Middle East’s only Democracy…
It’s obvious that the Zionists in control of Israel, the IDF, and the Israeli citizens who support them are war criminals.
What’s astounding is that the world community hasn’t stood up en masse to call Israel out and do what it takes to stop their criminality.
A lot of it has to do with billions of American taxpayers’ dollars subsidizing Israel.
I feel so sad for our species.
We have such immense power, but so few actual ethics.
Israel is a cross between the old Nazis who did the same to them and Andrew Jackson’s “Manifest Destiny” over the Indians. In other words ISRAEL IS MURDEROUS SCUM!!! (With U.S. blessings, of course!)
LIttle Nazis… The abused becomes the abuser. They keep the Palestinians in their big concentration camps, Gaza and the refugee camp, and get their jollies killing them like fish in a barrel. The idiots in Washington think they are going to help cause Armageddon (https://www.truthdig.com/articles/rapture-ready-how-u-s-policy-meshes-with-armageddon/) to happen sooner. Slaughtering innocent people is no big deal for the US. Though I am sure their religious nonsense will not come true, they are doing a good job of setting the stage for an Armageddon of sorts. Fresh water, food (crops), the ocean, and other various resources are coming into jeopardy with global warming. By the time Trumpty Dumpty finishes his first --and hopefully last-- term, it will be too late to stop the progression of global warming. The methane will rise soon and there should be plenty of fighting over resources in the meantime.
Yes! It is a common psychological problem that happens to people. The abused becomes the abuser. In this case it has happened to the whole group. And they seem to enjoy it. Rather than find a final solution, they seem to like keeping things the way they are so they can torture these people. Israel is sick… sick in the head.
Jumping the gun aren’t you? “War crimes?” That’s an allegation not a fact but don’t let due process get in your way.
IDF action is both consistent with international law and a proportionate response. Most of those shot dead were armed Hamas and Islamic Jihad members and international humanitarian law accepts that there will be civilian casualties.
The other relevant legal brief is that a border authority – the IDF in this case – must be convinced by anyone approaching a border that they do so intending no breach of law. Threatening to break through, kill Jews and tear out their hearts, fails to meet that standard. A bullet to one leg, below the knee represents proportionality.
Meanwhile, why are all the journalists massing in Israel? At the same time as the Gaza incident occurred, the Syrian national army and Russian advisors demolished the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp to get at IS terrorists imbedded there. How many civilians dead? Multiples compared with the Gaza incident I’d guess but we’ll never know because journalists only cover situations where Jews are confronted by Arabs.
No doubt the Syrians and Russians understood that the world would be focused on the IDF defending Israel’s border and distracted from real war crimes committed in Syria.
Journalists are not documenting war crimes in Gaza or anywhere in Israel. They are responding to a tried and true – but corrupt - formula. Jews killing Arabs, however justified? Publish it. Arabs killing Arabs regardless of the numbers? Who cares?
This article is absurd, like so many here that pander to the blood lust of those hostile to Jews.
at least Jerusalem. Get rid of the goddamned city . .
Can they even hear themselves? “We will do whatever necessary to break these Palestinians and subdue them so they will never be heard from again. And we will jail anyone who gets in our way of doing that. And, oh yeah, we expect the world to be on our side.”
I am equally pessimistic. From football players looking for justice to Occupy demonstrations being met by clubs and tear gas, those in power use the upper hand to frighten off would be sympathizers and use the other hand to slip us the tranquilizers of false patriotism, false news about how well we are all doing, and low rate loans to keep people financially indebted and under their thumbs.
The Nazis tried to exterminate the Jews.
The Palestinians are trying to exterminate the Jews.
The Palestinians are the new Nazis.
Palestinians have been oppressing Jews for centuries.
In 1839, the British consul, William Young, said that the poor Jew in Jerusalem…lives from day to day in terror of his life…Young attributed the plight of the Jew in Jerusalem to “the blind hatred and ignorant prejudice of a fanatical populace,”
JEWS IN JERUSALEM.
New York Times December 29, 1878
Crowded together in the worst lodgings, or in the dark cellars under a synagogue building, without food, fuel, or water –even water at Jerusalem being a commodity of price – numbers died of starvation and various diseases, while others went raving mad. Those who could labor were denied employment by the bigotry of the Mussulmans and of the Oriental Christians.
Notice the date. This was before the first Zionists arrived in Palestine. Notice the word bigotry.
Jews had lived for centuries in Hebron & Gaza until they were ethnically cleansed from those areas in 1929.
During the week of riots from 23 to 29 August, 133 Jews were killed by Arabs and 339 others were injured,
and now Palestinians oppress Israelis
Running over Israelis is oppression.
Stabbing Israelis is oppression.
Shooting Israelis is oppression.
Firing rockets at Israelis is oppression.
Blowing up Israelis is oppression.
Throwing rocks at Israelis is oppression.
And YOU are a programmed, propagandized, Zionized dumb fuck if you believe that!!!
And reading your asinine posts are OPPRESSIVE!!!
Evidence that what I said is wrong?
