Thanks again for posting this CD. The depredations of this racist little authoritarian ethnostate are not being covered in a lot of other liberal sites such as the orange place and TPM cult.

Seeing as how they also train america’s “police” force, this is likely a glimpse of future protests in america.

The policies and actions of Zionist/Israeli forces (and illegal “settlers”) from 1948 as in Dier Yassin and ever since. Restricting critical care for Palestinians, official policy by Yitzhak Rabin who ordered Israeli IDF to “break their arms and legs”. Any Palestinian child “rock thrower” caught had their arms or legs placed against a curb and stomped-on to break either or both.

Since then unarmed Palestinian and International protesters have been targeted for death, Gaza attacked with indiscriminate and banned weapons (white phosphorus, fletchet weapons, cluster bombs, and targeting civilian infrastructure, first-responder’s, and hospitals - a policy also used by the Israeli war criminals in Lebanon.

“What we did was insane and monstrous, we covered entire towns in cluster bombs,” the head of an IDF rocket unit in Lebanon said regarding the use of cluster bombs and phosphorous shells during the war".- over 1.2 million cluster bomblets covered South :Lebanon.

Favorite Israeli targets have been men, women and children of all ages. " IDF officer fired entire magazine into 13-year-old Palestinian schoolgirl Iman al-Hams - later saying “he would have done the same even if she had been three years old was acquitted on all charges by a military court yesterday.”

A terrorist entity that should be sanctioned into oblivion!

It not confined to the US. The IDF has stationed troops, providing arms and police training in several Central America countries including Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. In an ironic twist of fate, Trump cut off funding to these pro-israhell countries in March. Both Costa Rica and Nicaragua receive police training from israhell to quell demonstrations and protest.

I hadn’t read before that Costa Rica and Nicaragua police are trained by IDF forces, and I don’t find any info when I enter it into a search engine. Can you please provide some documentation, as I’d like to read about it. Thanks.

Howie Hawkins actually supports BDS. See this release from last year:

The late Bruce Dixon was managing editor at Black Agenda Report, a state committee member of the Georgia Green Party, and a member of the Howie Hawkins Exploratory Campaign Committee. He wrote this back in April, the day Howie Hawkins announced the exploratory phase of his presidential campaign. Yesterday Howie Hawkins was officially recognized as a presidential candidate by the Green Party.

“The latest legislative tweak aimed at kneecapping the Green Party was buried in the Democrats HR1, a provision that raised the amount Green presidential candidates needed to raise per state to qualify for matching funds from $5000 in small donations from each of 20 states to $25,000 in 20 states was endorsed and voted for by supposed socialist Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and every other Democrat in the House of Representatives. Curiously none of the so-called progressive Democrats, nobody in the media, in civil rights industrial complex, none of our friends in DSA and certainly not Tulsi Gabbard or even Bernie Sanders have ever bothered to mention this cynical and longstanding piece of voter suppression. These unjust legal barriers to third parties on the ballot are the main reason most US voters don’t get to see Green candidates on the ballot for state legislature, for governor or local offices, or for president.”

Unless these snipers are all Zionist fanatics or have otherwise lost all sense of humanity, there’s gotta be some serious PTSD among them for the sick acts they perpetrate.

When one is indoctrinated with myths like “a people without a land, a land without a people,” it is but a small step to treating these “invisible” people as somehow less than human.

It is this Zionist indoctrination and narrative that allows (if not encourages) them to engage in such shockingly inhuman actions, and make jaw-dropping statements like the following about an entire civilian population, including women and children:

“The idea is to put the Palestinians on a diet, but not to make them die of hunger,” senior Israeli government advisor Dov Weisglass notoriously explained in 2006.

This, just 70 years removed from the horrors of the Holocaust, without a hint of cognitive dissonance.

Shame!

Still waiting for Tulsi, Khanna and Pressley’s clarification.

Unfortunately outside parties are going nowhere until we rid ourselves of the corruptible voting machines IMO. I voted for Stein in 2016, then was shocked by the vote count. Then I trolled a lot of sites comment sections, liberal and conservative, came away with the conclusion that in no way did she receive only 1.5% of the votes. I’m convinced she reached that important 5% mark.

You might be right. I thought the number of Sanders supporters that were really mad was so high, that there had to be millions who refused to vote for Clinton. What did they do, stay home?

I still follow Jill Stein’s Twitter feed. She’s been focusing on election integrity issues since 2016.
