Articles like this are infuriating. 500 Illegal settlers in a town with 160,000 Palestinians and the squatters occupy one building and did not even buy that building. They are squatters. And the Hebron settlers are using their entrenched position as a means of keeping IDF soldiers present and eventually expanding the settlement. They throw feces and garbage on the Palestinians in the street below. Miraculously, none of this is ever reported in the NYT or WP or the Christian Science Monitor. But this story is. If these New York Jews are so passionate about the Hebron settlers let them go there and squat. Leave this country. Go. Issues like this hurt Israel and its main sponsor, the US. But the members in this group don't care about that. They would rather make a political statement which is insulting to the 9 Turks who were murdered by the Israelis and to the many participants in the Gaza aid flotilla.

Israel still maintains that it is not a racist state. Yet not an eyelash is batted when MK's propose an obvious racist measure. Note the rationale that is offered in the article; the Israelis want to make sure the accurate history is the one given to tourists. Translation: The Israelis want to control the narrative.

A video documenting Chapter X of the Goldstone Report with commentary and eyewitness testimony. Videos like this are certainly suppressed by our complicit media. We are supposed to listen to Wolf Blitzer's version of events on CNN. The truth cannot be suppressed forever. Thank you Justice Goldstone for writing a report that is based on the data you collected and for not allowing your own personal viewpoints to bias the report. Of course the Israelis claim that the Goldstone commission was born in sin and biased ... forgetting that the lead investigator is a lifelong Zionist. What passes for PR these days from the Israeli and US presses is shameful.
