  1. I find it ironic and tragic that these Palestinians are the blood descendants of the Cohenite Jews that re-established the Israel of yore and the settlers would treat their brothers and sisters like strangers. And I know many Israelis that can’t believe it either without even agreeing with my first sentence that Palestinians are Israelite descendants.

    But who am I kidding? They attacked IDF soldiers. I am afraid that the government under Netanyahu will not learn its way, even now.

    The ADL, AIPAC, and other right-wing Likudophiles have pushed themselves, Israel, and all of the United States into a dark diplomatic corner. Their stranglehold over the politics of Israel and America are sending us all straight off the cliff. What do they expect the end will look like? A beautiful disaster? Can they not read the writing on the wall?

  2. I’d like to see al-Rifai filing a libel suit against Yisrael Hayom and screwing some bucks out of Bibi’s sugar daddy.

    1. Will he have a sugar daddy to conduct his lawsuit for him? And can a Palestinian win such a lawsuit in Israeli courts? I am just asking. Justice is not automatic, anywhere. But in some places and situations and contexts it is automatically impossible.

      1. There are quite a few NGO’s who help the Palestinians (which is a wholly justified thing to do). Al Rifa’i may well obtain the necessary financial assistance, and he has a good chance of being represented pro bono in a court.
        No, justice is not automatic, and Israeli courts are all too compliant with the whims of the security apparatus, but Yisrael Hayom does not belong to that category. It’s just a newspaper (albeit with a wealthy patron). I don’t see a particular problem here.
