  1. Richard, I wouldn’t be surprised if @APDiploWriter were interested in the story of the stranded Palestinian-Americans.

  2. “…. the battle did not go well for the Israeli forces who had hoped for stealth to reach and neutralize their target.  With the ambush they lost the element of surprise and were forced to call in F-16s and helicopter gunships to hold off the attacking Palestinians. “

    Old colonial consolation:

    “He stood upon a little mound

    Cast his lethargic eyes around,
And said beneath his breath:

    ‘Whatever happens, we have got
    The Maxim Gun, and they have not.”

    Hilaire Belloc

  3. Will >Abu Khdeir killers plead temporary insanity?

    The suspects’ testimonies also revealed that the alleged crime was premeditated, and that they obtained supplies — including handcuffs and gasoline — in advance.

    The investigation found that Abu Khdeir was chosen at random, and had no previous relationship with his alleged killers.

    The investigation also confirmed Palestinian reports that Abu Khdeir’s killing followed an attempt to snatch an eight-year-old Palestinian boy the night before, at around 1 a.m., by two of the three suspects. That abduction was prevented, investigators have concluded (also in keeping with Palestinian reports), by the boy’s mother driving away the attackers.

    The gag order was lifted on all details of the investigation except the suspects’ identities.

  4. What is the end goal here? To cleanse za stolen “motherland” of all za non-“Chosen” people, Fuhrer Netanyahu?

    Here is what I see:
    (1) Israel assassinated its own, Rabin, and this meant a coup d’etats plus one way ticket to the self-destruction of Israel in a Captain Ahab like quest for “Greater Israel”;

    (2) Israel’s “Oded Yonin” plan (aka PNAC/”Clean Break” for gentile consumption) to balkanize Israel’s regional opponents and reshape the Middle East, and Jabotinsky plan (to ethnically cleanse all of Palestine from both leftist and rightist political factions — the iron wall from all sides), are being enacted before my eyes via Saudi Arabia/anti-US treasonous Neocon/Israel funded ISIS and other Takfiri terrorists employed in Syria previously. The proposed plan to cut Iraq into thirds is identical to the Yonin map — no one is bothering to hide the truth anymore, at least not from plain sight (knowing people are too stupid to research things themselves — a Goebbels like calculation);

    (3) A false pretext was used to commit to the present ethnic cleansing action towards Palestine. Israeli investigators knew in advance those Settler teens were dead and exploited the hysteria to lead to this non-sensical and unconnected action;

    (4) The world is now seeing for itself the true Zionist grip on America media. On the one hand are the incontrovertible facts glaring at them from all sides of the internet and their own common sense about the Israeli domination and genocide of Palestine, and on the other is Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer, and ABC literally reversing the facts and turning a world-class military, aggressive beyond any other, into a whining puppy victim of stone throwers and a destitute and occupied people with “rockets” that don’t even have targeting capabilities or ordinances for detonation upon impact;

    (5) Speaking of Hamas missiles lacking targeting, the Zionist media ploys against Palestinians are schizophrenic as always. On the one hand, they are suddenly so powerful that they are targeting Dimona (an illegal nuclear plant). Conversely, they are also so pathetic that they use babies as human shields. Meanwhile, anyone in the know is quite aware that it was Mofaz who, on behalf of the IDF, tried to APPEAL the ban on Israel’s military using Palestinian women and children as body shields and BOMB SWEEPERS. Yes, you read that right: they tried to APPEAL THE BAN. Meaning, the Israeli leadership thinks it is most appropriate to use the Goy as shields for the Chosen;

    (6) Israelis in Sderot sat on the hillside and watched the Israeli genocide with shouts of glee and joy. This is the same Sderot used as a pretext to commit war crimes against Palestine, by claiming that the Sderot residents are under fear of rocket fire every day and Israel must defend itself. They didn’t feel so threatened on HILLSIDES facing the battle in comfortable lawn chairs, smiling most evilly at the camera, unsuspecting that the photographer would then send the picture around the internet in no time flat; and,

    (7) The United States is saying nothing, but this time it is to simply allow Israel enough to provide the own rope for its hanging. There is nothing defensible about Israel anymore and the lies have lost luster. You can hire 100,000,000 Hasbara agents, control the media airwaves 24/7, and even lie blatantly as you do in repeated fashion from all across the information spectrum. The world simply does not believe in war lies anymore, especially stemming from the Zionist faction.

    Indeed, Israel lies about Palestine just like it lies about Iran, just like it lied about Saddam’s WMDs (to Senate Intelligence committees and even had a hand in the forged yellowcake document), about Syria and the need to “free the people” from Assad by supporting Al Qaeda (read: now ISIS) terrorists, about Ukraine (Nuland and the FPI were caught red-handed by leaked tape and there is no defense to this — game is over), and much more.

    Israel, therefore, no longer is a reality. It continues to exist in its criminal fashion only because it has managed to DEFY the reality and suppress the reactions to people discovering the reality is hiding. However, I urge my Israeli friends, even the hardcore Zionists who are too stupid to listen, to be careful: that ability to resist the truth is no longer potent and hasn’t been for about 5-6 years.

    1. I keep hearing about Israel doing the genocidal cleansing, but the numbers don’t add up. While I do feel for every innocent who suffers in the conflict, under 200 dead out of a population of 1,657,000 is hardly a genocidal cleansing.

      1. @ Peut-etre: More banal amoral claptrap. 200 dead is 200 more than there should be. What, by the way, is the red line for killing in Gaza? 10% of the population?

        No one here that I know of has talked about “genocidal cleansing.” In fact, this sounds like a meme you learned at Hasbara Central. Comments must be DIRECTLY RELATED to the post. Not some straw man you’ve cooked up.

        Notice to all: if you appear to be repeating hasbara themes others have already brought up here or your comments are like this one, I reserve the right to moderate on first offense. I simply don’t have the energy or patience to deal with this.

  5. [comment deleted–This comment is a virtual regurgitation of many other comments made here in the past few days. Others have claimed falsely Hamas uses civilians as human shields. You can get away with this in an open forum. But this is not Hasbara Central. I will not allow the Hasbara brigade to monopolize this venue for propaganda purposes. This is a forum where people comment based on facts & evidence. Since you offered none & repeated others, I won’t publish your comment. I didn’t much like your earlier comments either, so I’m moderating you. Your comments will be published if they’re substantive, on topic, and contain some original thought.]

    1. I hate to burst your propaganda bubble, but:
      (1) It’s already evidenced that Mofaz, on behalf of the IDF, tried to APPEAL the ban by Israel’s supreme court on Israel’s military using Palestinian women and children as body shields and BOMB SWEEPERS. So, your whole narrative and mythos of Hamas using babies as a shield is swept away by the judicial history in Israel in the early 2000s, a time when Israel’s leadership had the chutzpah to press against such a ban out in the open. Stop falsifying everything else; and,

      (2) as this ethnic cleansing action was entered into on the false pretext of uninvestigated deaths of illegal settler teens found in the OTHER open air concentration camp of the West Bank, with Israeli investigators hiding for weeks the fact that they knew they were already dead for purposes of exploiting the hysteria, Israel clearly does not do anything it can to avoid civilian casualties. Clearly, it is interested IN civilian casualties as the end-goal is the ethnic cleansing from the land of all non-“Chosen” people.

      Finally, “hamas TV”. That’s cute. What are the 6 Zionist corporations that control ALL of America’s Hollywood complex, including a “news” arm, via financial monopolization supposed to call their garbage? “Adelson Tube”?

  6. [comment deleted–you’re already moderated. Publish a comment like this again here & you’ll be banned]

  7. Yes – Israel has won again, just like it did against the rag-tag Hezbollah fighters in 2006 when, after about 30 days fighting, Hezbollah killed 26 Israeli soldiers a day before Israel threw in the towell. Some victory, Sam.

    The Israeli commando raid in Gaza was always going to be another resounding Israeli success unless they were all killed or all captured by the rag-tag Hamas fighters.
