Circus Clowns

Aluf Benn wrote an article on how Israeli leadership is currently a circus.

Racist Lieberman Wants Expulsions

This guy is, and has been, out of control. A Russian immigrant wants people whose family lineages date back to Christ to leave Israel if they do not sign a "loyalty" oath.

What would this demagogue's response be if the Nazis made Jews sign a loyalty oath?

Israel will be either a democratic state or a Jewish state but cannot be both. With this obvious racist occupying the position of foreign minister, I have a good guess on what the agenda is.

The "talks" should be about international law, the illegal settlements, the Goldstone report, '67 borders, and the right of return. On these key issues it is Israel that must make concessions, not the Palestinians.

Israel Objects to White Phosphorous?

During Operation Cast Lead when the IDF rained white phosphorous down on civilians, they certainly did not object to the use of it, even though the Goldstone report took a different position. But now that two homemade missiles were fired into Israel and evidently white phosphorous was used in the missiles, stop the presses. How many people were killed inside Israel by the use of this weapon? 0 !!!!! How many civilians were killed/injured by white phosphorous when Israel deployed this monstrous weapon against a defenseless civilian population? They are still doing a tally.

But articles like this will play right into the hands of the spin doctors and propagandists inside the US.

And at the end of this day the Israelis will have built more settlements on Palestinian land, demolished more Palestinian housing, will have discriminated against Arab Israelis, and not a bloody peep from the same media pundits.

It's so rotten I can't even remember what a clean smell is.

Barghouti's Interview

A friend asked me a few weeks ago what I thought about the impending Direct Talks between Israel and the person representing the Palestinians even though he is not their democratically elected leader. I explained why the current process is a farce.

When I watched this guy's interview, I noticed the similarity in our arguments.

Honest and reasonable, and obviously barred from the US media !

Why is B'Tselem So Shocked?

I am very happy B'Tselem assembled this report. I do not find the results shocking but rather par for the course. In Israel, Israeli lives are precious but the lives of non-Israelis don't count for much. You see it in racist policies inside Israel. You see it with their wanton destruction of other peoples' lands, you see it with their brutal occupation, and their continual lies to justify their actions.

It's always the other party's fault. That is the modus operandi which governs their PR machine.

Another Charade

The Israelis were adamant that the Palestinians did not impose any "pre-conditions" on talks. The Israelis are the ones with pre-conditions, obviously, making the point that talks can occur while the illegal settlements are expanded. The Israelis know that no Palestinian leader, Abbas, Hamas or other, could ever accept talks under such dubious circumstances. They know, a priori, that the talks will fail and they want to make sure that the blame is placed with the Palestinians so that they may later say that they tried and alas, the Israelis have no partner for peace. This is the standard Israeli tactic that has been replayed time and time again, which is why these talks are a complete farce. The occupation is still ongoing, the land theft is expanding, and the Israelis point the finger at the Palestinians.

How Much Gold at Fort Knox?

Ron Paul said that next year he will introduce legislation to audit the amount o gold kept at Fort Knox.

I am sure the establishment will find a way and a manufactured pseudo-argument for not doing the audit.

But the American people should know since the gold once belonged to our people.
