Advice to Wall Street Protestors; Next Time Bring 500,000

"In communist Russia you rob bank! In capitalist America bank robs you!!"

smokescreen767

NEW YORK—More than 700 protesters associated with the "Occupy Wall Street" movement were arrested Saturday afternoon for blocking traffic on New York's Brooklyn Bridge.

Police prepare to arrest demonstrators affiliated with the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement after they attempted to cross the Brooklyn Bridge.

The arrests began at 4:45 p.m. and continued for hours. Brooklyn-bound traffic resumed at about 8 p.m. after being halted for roughly four hours, snarling traffic throughout lower Manhattan, according to Paul Browne, deputy commissioner of the New York City Police Department.

Protesters were taken to precincts throughout Brooklyn and New York, where many were issued tickets for disorderly conduct and released, according to Mark Taylor, an attorney working with the nonprofit National Lawyers Guild.

    The organizers, in Israel, have popular support. Polling at 90% approval, in Israel.

    Among the issues raised were the cost of housing, transport, childcare, food and fuel; the low salaries paid to many professionals, including doctors and teachers; tax reform; and welfare payments.

  7. All the protesters want on Wall Street:

    "A little accountability"

    There is no aura of popular discontent and social failure, here.

    There are no protests, to speak of.

    The big crowd on Wall Street there, for the prospect of a free concert by Radiohead, who no-showed.

    If the majority of the US public wanted accountability, they'd support an audit of the Federal Reserve.

    Some argue against that, here. While few actively support the idea of a little accountability.

    The Left covets the neighbor's ass. They make private business transactions a public moral issue.

    The Right covets the neighbor's wife's ass. They make private consensual sexuality a public moral issue.

    I think this is an anti-Zionist and anti-Jewish policy. It doesn’t address the values of Judaism in any fashion.”

    Now this fellow quoted, some here would describe him as a looter.
    Or just a supremely disgruntled Israeli and Jew, one that thinks his government has sold the people out, thrown them "under the bus", as it were.

    Pesach Hausfater, the Labor Zionist youth leader who’s described as the key organizational mind—some call him “the responsible adult in the room”—in the leadership of Israel’s current economic protest movement. His critique of Netanyahu’s economic policies is the most trenchant I’ve heard since the protests erupted, so I decided to translate it into English for your viewing pleasure.

  13. But the leader of the Israeli protests makes the point, the Israeli government does not represent Judaism.

    Pesach Hausfater compares Bibi's government to that of King Louis XVI of France who faced a fiscal crisis in the 1780s.
    "Let them eat cake" transforms to:

    But the government says that at least there’s no unemployment here and the people aren’t shouting that there’s no bread.

    “There isn’t work, there’s servitude. This is what’s called double-think. It’s taken straight from George Orwell’s 1984. ...

    Israel: Ticho House








    Long before anyone ever thought of rebranding Jerusalem, the archetype
    for its user-friendly, family-atmosphere cultural image existed in the
    home of an ophthalmologist and his cousin/wife from Austro-Hungary - a
    building purchased from a 19th century Arab dignitary.

    Dr. Avraham Albert Ticho arrived in Jerusalem in 1912, an emissary of a
    German Zionist organization, sent here to establish a clinic. His
    cousin Anna who had been studying art since the age of 15 soon followed
    him, and the two were married. She began painting seriously while the
    two were stationed in Damascus during WW I, and several years after
    their return to Jerusalem, they purchased the house, which had been one
    of the first to be built outside the Old City Walls.

     

    The clinic operated until the doctor's death in 1960, and the home
    became a central venue for Jerusalem's social and cultural milieu.
    Israel prize winner Anna continued painting until her own death in
    1980, and her paintings are internationally acclaimed and found in
    museums around the world. Upon her death, she bequeathed the house and
    its collections to the people of Jerusalem - a public center of the
    arts that is administered by the Israel Museum.

     

    Besides the collection of works by Anna Ticho and Dr. Ticho's Hanukkah
    lamps, the garden restaurant has become a favorite venue for Friday
    morning concerts and other cultural happenings.

    Israel: Restoration of the Crown in Jerusalem's Damascus Gate






    After nearly a year of extensive conservation work on the largest and
    most impressive of Jerusalem’s gates, visitors to the Old
    City can now enjoy the Damascus Gate in all its splendor, 
    just as the public experienced it for hundreds of years.The
    conservation of the gate, carried out as part of the Jerusalem City
    Wall Conservation Project in cooperation with the Jerusalem Development
    Authority, the Israel Antiquities Authority and the Prime
    Minister’s Office, included the restoration of the large
    crown that Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent built atop the gate in 1538
    CE, which was destroyed during the 1967 Six Day War when the gate
    sustained serious damage.





    Crown on Damascus Gate After Renovations

     

    Guided by pictures of the gate taken at the beginning of the twentieth
    century when the British governed Jerusalem, professionals restored and
    secured the crown to the core of the wall by means of eleven anchors.
    At the same time, the four stone decor was completely restored, and its
    ceiling was covered again with stone slabs. The work on the wall
    included conservation, the removal of hazards and the rehabilitation of
    elements in the wall.

     

    “The Old City of Jerusalem is a focus of interest for people
    the world over and the number one tourist attraction in
    Israel”, says Elad Kendel, director of the Old City Basin in
    the Jerusalem Development Authority. “The city walls and
    gates are the first thing that everyone sees when they arrive at the
    Old City, and it is therefore important to us that tourists, both
    domestic and foreign, see the city in all its glory”.

     

    According to Avi Mashiah, the project’s architect on behalf
    of the Conservation Department of the Israel Antiquities Authority,
    “The work at Damascus Gate was particularly challenging since
    it is located at the entrance to a noisy and bustling marketplace. All
    of the work that was carried out there was done so in agreement with
    the local merchants. In order to avoid disturbing business in the
    marketplace, work was begun after the last stall closed at 10:00 PM,
    and continued until the early hours of the morning, prior to the start
    of the following business day.”

    But what of Ford and GM, dad?

    "Made in Mexico", comes the response.



    That the US would bail out Mexican manufacturing, rankles the sensibilities. That is if further expansion of the Union was not the goal of our agenda.

    Jewish refugees, not counting offspring... Just from the arab occupied
    world






    INTRODUCTION

     

    When the issue of refugees is raised within the context of the Middle
    East, people invariably

    refer to Palestinian refugees, virtually never to Jews displaced from
    Arab countries. 

     

    In reality, two major population movements occurred as a result of over
    a half century of turmoil

    in the Middle East. Securing rights for these former Jewish refugees
    has never been adequately

    addressed by the international community. For any peace process to be
    credible and enduring, it

    must address the rights of all Middle East refugees, including Jewish
    and other minority

    populations that were displaced from Arab countries.

     

    Historically, Jews and Jewish communities have existed in the Middle
    East, North Africa and the

    Gulf region for more than 2,500 years. Jews in substantial numbers
    resided in what are to-day

    Arab countries over 1,000 years before the advent of Islam. Following
    the Moslem conquest of

    the region, for centuries, while relegated to second-class status, Jews
    were nonetheless

    permitted limited religious, educational, professional, and business
    opportunities. 

     

    It is important to note that the treatment of Jews by Arab leaders and
    Islamic populations

    varied greatly from country to country. By way of example, in some
    countries, Jews were

    forbidden to leave (e.g. Syria); in others, many Jews were expelled
    (e.g. Egypt) or displaced en

    masse (e.g. Iraq); while other Jewish communities lived in relative
    peace under the protection

    of Muslim rulers (e.g. Tunisia, Morocco). 

     

    When Arab countries gained independence, followed by the rise in Arab
    nationalism, state-

    sanctioned measures, coupled often with violence and repression, made
    remaining in the land

    of their birth an untenable option for Jews. 

     

    In 1948, the status of Jews in Arab countries worsened dramatically as
    many Arab countries

    declared war, or backed the war against the newly founded State of
    Israel. Jews were either

    uprooted from their countries of longtime residence or became
    subjugated, political hostages of

    the Arab-Israeli conflict. In virtually all cases, as Jews left the
    country, individual and communal

    properties were confiscated without compensation.

     

    Since 1948, over 850,000 Jews have left their birthplaces and their
    homes in some 10 Arab

    countries. To-day, fewer than 7,000 Jews remain in these same
    countries.

     

    The fact that Jews displaced from Arab countries were indeed bone fide
    refugees, under

    international law, is beyond question.

  29. The Jewish side of the partition was to have 500,000 Jews and 400,000 Arabs. The Arab side was to have 700,000 Arabs and 10,000 Jews (whose life expectancy after Partition was about the same as a child's balloon). The Jews would get the blasted wasteland of the Negev desert, and the Arabs would get the fertile upper Galilee region. The UN thought all these arrangements were fair. So fair, in fact, that after Israel declared Statehood and the UN realized the Displaced Persons were being handed rifles as soon as they got off the boat at Haifa, another SC resolution was passed to prevent immigration of males from age 17 to 45.

  30. Many Iranian and Kurdish Jews fled Iran and abandoned their property in fear, that they would remain hostages of a hostile regime.When combined all together, as much as 37% of Jews in Islamic countries - the Arab world, Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan, left for Israel between May 1948 and the beginning of 1952. They amounted for 56% of the total immigration to the newly founded State of Israel.[

  31. 1920 Nabi Musa riots left four Arabs and five Jews killed, with 216 Jews and 23 Arabs wounded. The majority of the victims were members of the old Yishuv. About 300 Jews from the Old City were evacuated following the riots.[13]


    The "Baltimore News" reports the accounts of Jewish refugees from Hebron, following the 1929 Hebron massacre
    During Jaffa riots in 1921, thousands of Jewish residents of Jaffa fled for Tel Aviv and were temporarily housed in tent camps on the beach. Tel Aviv, which had previously been lobbying for independent status, became a separate city due in part to the riots. However Tel Aviv was still dependent on Jaffa, which supplied it with food and services, and was the place of employment for most residents of the new city.[13]
    Following the 1929 Palestine riots, which left 133 Jews dead,[14][15] the Jewish community members of Gaza and Hebron were ordered to evacuate by the British forces, in fear of their security.

  33. 90% of the US population does not "believe" that these conditions exist, in the USA.

    As a result, small protests became huge ones nationwide in 11 cities. More on the largest ones below.

    At issue are the following grievances:

    (1) Along with America and Britain, Israel has the greatest wealth disparity and social inequality among developed nations, causing unemployment, poverty, hunger, homelessness, and eroding benefits.

    (2) Unaffordable housing, creating an intolerable burden for growing numbers being priced out of a place to live.

    (3) High food and energy prices.

    (4) Low wages and eroding social benefits.

    (5) Onerous taxes on working households.

    (6) Lack of free education and better healthcare benefits.

    (7) Weak labor rights.

    (8) A disproportionate amount of construction funding for settlement development, leaving too little to build affordable housing in Israel.

    (9) Israel spends double the amount per settlement resident compared to others Israelis. In fact, since the 1990s, it's been official government policy to encourage population shifts to West Bank and East Jerusalem locations, depriving most Israelis in the process. In addition, Israel spends over $700 million annually on occupation, besides an inordinate amount on defense at the expense of social needs.

    (10) The "high cost of raising children," the common ignored complaint voiced by most Israelis.

    Poon Tang is a very good thing, normally. But Palin is as dumb as a box of hammers.

    "Well, let's see. There's ― of course in the great history of America there have been rulings that there's never going to be absolute consensus by every American, and there are those issues, again, like Roe v. Wade, where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So, you know, going through the history of America, there would be others but ―" (Sarah Palin, unable to name a Supreme Court decision she disagreed with other than Roe vs. Wade, interview with Katie Couric, CBS News, Oct. 1, 2008)

    I presume that means she was in favor of the Dred Scott decision, which voided the Missouri Compromise since the act exceeded the powers of Congress, insofar as it attempted to exclude slavery and impart freedom and citizenship to non-white persons.

    No, I suggest that you, a hate filled, jew hating, israel hating, zionism hating piece of shit has ruined the Blog by making each and every thread your personal jew bashing, israel bashing, zionist repudiating world.

    YOU and your fellow anti-semites cant discuss Israel, Zionism or Israel without either Aryan Nation, Islamist or replacement theology nonsense talking points coming up..

    You are not worthy of any real discussion on those topics.

    For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.

    My point is that apparently even G-d is an anti-Semite, by WiO's definition, since G-d said (through Ezekiel) said to an anthropomorphized Jerusalem: "In the midst of thee have they dealt by oppression with the stranger"

    In most cases during the run up to the War of Independence, the Arabs fled their communities when they were besieged and occupied. In the case of the town of Dair Yassin where they did not (April 1948), the Jewish "militant" groups Irgun and the Stern Gang massacred 107 Arabs: men, women, and children.

  89. I speak for AIGHT. I think I speak for many. I need to take the time. The many need to take the time. To take the stand. To let those mother fuckers know they better take the stand or we fuck them up.

    This real-life triage is what's been holding Americans at bay, and keeping most of us from speaking above an exhausted grumble. The holders, movers and shakers of our corporatocracy know it all too well. Growing, maintaining, and deploying superior resources against an exhausted populace (target) is their go-to paradigm for keeping things going their way, and maximizing what can be siphoned off from us.

    We will only fix this mess when we stop exhausting ourselves and our budgets with marketed distractions, and re-enter real life with our full attention. (This engineered exhaustion is a major factor in the protesters' apparent lack of focus -- these people are still emerging from the haze, albeit ahead of the rest of us.)

    It will take a real choice to help. But most of us would be neglecting responsibilities or risking loss of job to do so, but must it be done. The beast must be broken.

  91. This time around the Establishment can't blame it on the "Communists." The communists are capitalists, now; and better at it than we are.

    This is about more than just wall street, there is an underlying theme that even President Obama won't touch about the lack of equal reciprocity in society. It's not just taxes, it's about resetting value sets all over the system. This capitalist economy has focused on short term gains for too long, while turning a blind eye to the whole.

    I happen to think the GM and Chrysler bailouts were the right thing to do, and not just for GM and Chrysler.

    However, in certain ways (the UAW labor contract rules for instance) it put the other automakers at a disadvantage.

    In addition, it is pure bullshit when the government starts interfering with the automakers that didn't take the bailouts.

    White House wrong to lean on Ford

    One would think the Obama White House has enough to worry about — with unemployment at more than 9 percent, a housing market that remains depressed, and a new stimulus spending plan that is failing to gain support from Democrats and Republicans — that it wouldn't worry about television ads.

    But the micromanagement practiced by President Obama's politically driven regime has reached a new level with its involvement in a Ford TV ad that had been acclaimed as popular in helping the company sell the nation's most popular automotive product, the F-150 truck.

    Ford's ad, which was part of its "real people" series, featured customer Chris McDaniel in a pseudo press conference where he extolled the virtues of the pickup.

    McDaniel, an auto credit agent, said he made his decision because he "wasn't going to buy another car that was bailed out by the government," a reference to U.S. bailouts for General Motors and Chrysler as part of their bankruptcy.

    "I was going to buy from a manufacturer that's standing on its own: win, lose or draw," he says in the ad.

    "That's what America is about — understanding when you fail that you gotta pick yourself up and go back to work," he continued.
    But the Obama administration didn't care for the free market message and, as my Detroit News colleague Daniel Howes reported this week, the White House contacted Ford to discuss the ad and the company has now pulled the popular spot.

    While Howes quoted an industry source insisting that there was no pressure to take the ad down, any such inquiries from the White House represent coercion...

    They tried that, the previous generation has made sure that there aren't enough of them to go around, and those that do exist pay less and less of what approaches a decent wage. Then we hear, "try starting up your own business", but the same bankers who have driven this economy into the shitter now cling to their funds in a death-grip which stifles any new innovation.
    Perhaps that's why they are out there in the first place - have no fear, their message will coalesce given time.

  103. What is a massacre?


    A massacre is the general and unnecessary slaughter of members of one group by one or more members of another more powerful group. A massacre may be indiscriminate or highly methodical in application. The massacred group may be humans or animals. A massacre is a single event, though it may occur during the course of an extended campaign or war. A massacre is separate from a battle (an event in which opposing sides fight), but may follow in its immediate aftermath, when one side has surrendered or lost the ability to fight, yet the victors persist in killing in their opponents.


    So when some people call 105 deaths in a firefight a massacre it does not make it one...

    In the book "6 days of war" John Loftus makes it quite clear that the Liberty was infact spying on Israel and transferring the electronic war map to the Egyptians via the English on Cyprus.

    The US did not send any rescue or back up to "help" the Liberty as NONE of them thought any USA warship was in the area. (nor did Israel as Israel KNEW of the American withdraw from the area) thus the Liberty?
