Pregnant Woman and Toddler Among Those Killed in Israel's Latest Vicious Assault on Gaza

This might explain the rubbish Dudester, deckhughes2, and JackGreen always spew after a negative Israeli story.

They are paid $2000 a week for 5 hours of internet disinformation work.

The story falsely implies the genocide is a new situation, but it began with the Balfour Declaration and went full-on in the Nakbah of 1947-48 with full support of the UK, US and other Western imperial nations. The whole point is to establish a Western base to control water, oil in the region. The Western imperial venture has been a raving success. (Your neighborhood “troll” because I use Black Agenda Report as a major source).

Israel was founded as , and remains , A European Colony in the heart of the Middle East. It is intended as a base from which that region can be dominated by foreign powers.

Their claims of “self defense” when they launch attacks against and slaughter Palestinians is no different then what the Colonists in the Americas did against the First Nations peoples at places like Mystic River , Wounded Knee and Sand Creek. In each of those slaughters the Colonists claimed “self defense”.

The US Government awarded 20 medals of Honor to soldiers that committed the massacre at Wounded Knee for “extreme bravery”. Israel does much the same with the soldiers it sends to commit those massacres. In the Western USA vast tracts of land were claimed as belonging to the First Nations peoples to the end of time by way of treaty. Colonists just moved onto this land and called it their own and if the First Nations peoples resisted , the US Military moved in to slaughter them and called it self defense.

Israel is doing the very same thing.

Here is the thing. A good many peoples living in those nations settled by Colonialism will acknowledge that a wrong was committed against the First nations peoples and weep crocodile tears over what was done while at the same time they will INSIST Israel in the right here and only defending itself. They expose themselves as absolute and utter frauds.

The media often skews the time-line of events to show that it is Israel retaliating against Palestinaina attacks when frequently it i retaliation from Palestinians for Israeli acts.

On Monday, an Israeli tank shelled a Hamas border-post and killed two supposedly for Hamas firing upon them except that it was not according to Hamas.

The rocket attacks on Wednesday were in response to this.

Now anyone with a reasonable disposition would suggest that UN observers be placed to determine responsibility. But this is something both Israel and Hamas object to.

And if Jeremy Corbyn had said any of that, the airwaves would be full of “Friends of Israel” (led by the unspeakable Hodge) howling that he was a racist and anti semite. Instead the British airwaves are full of friends of Bojo, defending his right to mock some Muslim women for their dress. Because of course only one kind of racism is actually considered atrocious in the UK, and it isn’t Islamophobia.

One interesting and important similarity that Hamas shares with that twentieth century German National Socialists is that after they won an election, they never allowed one again.

Can pro-Israelis guarantee that there would not be interference in elections by them as there was in 2006. And of course there was the attempted coup against Hamas who do not require lecturing in democracy by those who only support elections if they ultimately have the result they seek.

Why do you not question Abbas legitimacy?
The PA legislature has not met in a full session since 2006, so there is no parliamentary check against Abbas’s authority. Abbas’s security forces have driven Hamas underground, and the president has undermined rival centers of power within his own Fatah faction (see, for example, his sidelining of jailed Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti. He also has not hesitated to use his security forces to arrest Palestinians for critical Facebook posts or to beat people demonstrating for the repeal of the PA’s economic sanctions targeting Palestinians in Gaza.

That link didn’t work for me…here is the story of Hasbara troll propaganda, paid to spread disinformation/lies, and who they are. Israeli students are taught racism, supremacist mythology, and paid to lie - some education!

You cannot “improve the image” of a terrorist mass-murderer racist entity dedicated to brutality, illegal territorial expansion/colonization, targeted killings of unarmed civilians, journalists, medics, and protesters including Americans our government does nothing about! Add fomenting genocidal wars throughout the ME/NA - usually by their partner US government and the image of a neo-fascist regime is clear!

Just a few of those that lead our country for the benefit of another country. Check the list of names. You know who these people are and what they have done.

This is part of the ongoing effort by the murderous, thieving, genocidal, thuggish Zionists to achieve their ultimate goal - the total expulsion of ALL Palestinians and non-Jews from all of Gaza and the West Bank. What they refer to as “Greater Israel”. They feel they are entitled to the entire region as “God’s Promise” to the Jews. This superstitious lie cannot be continued to be used as foreign policy by the secular government of the U. S. and the rest of the West.

I continue to call for not only the current Boycott, Divest and Sanction Movement against Israel, but a total, world-wide blockade and embargo of this criminal “state”. Nothing in or out, including money, until they collapse and can be taken back by the rightful Palestinian owners. The Zionist thieves must be, and deserve to be driven into the sea and out of all of the territory they have stolen over the past 70+ years, and yes they stole it.

In Australia “dual citizenship” persons are tolerated, but not as elected representatives in government… "section 44(i) of the Australian Constitution - prohibits parliamentarians from having allegiance to a foreign power. Any person who Is under any acknowledgement of allegiance, obedience, or adherence to a foreign power, or is a subject or a citizen or entitled to the rights or privileges of a subject or citizen of a foreign power shall be incapable of being chosen or of sitting as a [senator] or a member of the House of Representatives…a reasonable requirement especially given the extremist, racist agenda of zionism and Israel to the exclusion of all others!.

By contrast Section 101(a)(22) of the US Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) states that - "U.S. law does not mention dual nationality or require a person to choose one nationality or another. Dual nationals owe allegiance to both the United States and the foreign country. It is important to note the problems attendant to dual nationality. Claims of other countries upon U.S. dual-nationals often place them in situations where their obligations to one country are in conflict with the laws of the other." A n ordinary citizen’s “loyalties” are far different in effect than an elected law-maker that has the power to aid, and actually serve, the interests of the foreign power…such is the overt case with Israeli subversion over many decades! Dual-national loyalties should be banned for Congress and other state governmental positions.

The reality is that one cannot serve two masters, especially given the zionist expansionist agenda and mythology that places that agenda foremost, and all other concerns and loyalties take a back-seat.to it

The US government, Congress, the Fourth Estate, and state government (Chicago for example) are awash in dual-citizen Israelis who demonstrably hold first loyalty to a foreign power, Israel, over decades of overt actions and statements! AIPAC is the agent of a foreign power that exists to subvert, pressure and target for defeat, any candidate not in thrall to the Israeli agenda! That reality is a subversion of US sovereignty, politics, and foreign-policy that no nation should tolerate!

Examples of what you accurately write about are endless over the past 60 years - How appropriate the US government has chosen to become ally to such depravity ,given their own…

The Zionist regime in Israel are guilty of hundreds of examples of crimes against humanity. They are ideologically akin to the Nazis with their super-racist indoctrination of IDF soldiers and the general medias racist fear campaigns about Palestinians. An international tribunal should be assembled to convene war crimes trials against the political leadership of the Zionist state and a few of the worst offenders on the ground. Punishment should be severe and swift. I suggest the death penalty should be resurrected for these crimes against humanity. Executions should be held in a public square in front of the Knesset. See www.plp.org . Only an egalitarian communist revolution around the globe can free humanity of the stench of capitalist-inspired reacism.

The Israelis voted for Netanyahu in large numbers, they are “trapped” by no one and have the power of the vote to change what they do not like.


#35

No, I enjoy hearing opinions that differ from mine. If I wanted to simply listen to others who agree with me, I would go to Townhall or something


#36

There is a massive amount of Anti Semitism on the far left. Common Dreams has a very far left following.


#37

As though you’ve never heard of rigged elections –

We’ve had plenty of them here in the USA, as well, over 50+ years of using
hack-able computer voting.

Where you have assassination of liberal leadership, you have rigged elections as well.


#38

I have often wondered whether the Zionist trolls were amateur or paid. Maybe they do an unpaid internship and then rise through the pay scale as they become slicker?


#39

It’s so fun to listen in to sock puppets chattering to each other. Troll level: Junior

Semi-pro, but their racism and racial superiority illness makes their words transparent as those of depraved vicious racist killers that don’t care about any other people.
