    1. I have changed my position.

      Israel should embrace your nonsense.

      Annexation of arab lands and deportation of masses of arabs in response to any violence.

      No of course Israel cannot compete with the Syrian/Iranian/Hezbollah levels of ethnic cleansing and mass murder but Israel sure can do better.

      Maybe if Israel just deported the majority of savages (arabs) to London then Israel would be ok...

  4. A top Israeli general faces criticism after apparently comparing aspects of Israeli society to Nazi-era Germany during a Wednesday speech about the Holocaust.

    Speaking at the Tel Yitzhak kibbutz on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day, Major-General Yair Golan, the Israel Defense Forces's second-highest-ranking officer, implied there was Nazi-like behavior in Israeli society.

    “If there is one thing that is scary in remembering the Holocaust, it is noticing horrific processes which developed in Europe – particularly in Germany – 70, 80, and 90 years ago, and finding remnants of that here among us in the year 2016,” he said.

  5. The episode since Israeli medic-soldier and French citizen Elor Azarya was filmed summarily executing Abd Al-Fattah Al-Sharif has been a sobering reminder of the Israeli right-wing’s total and long-standing dominance over the Zionist left, manifesting into a display unseen since the last war on Gaza, when anti-war protesters were beaten in the streets.

    On March 24, Azarya was caught on film summarily executing a wounded, incapacitated Palestinian man as he lay on the ground in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.

    As the video went viral, the Israeli public rallied around Azarya. A petition for his release gained 50,000 signatures in a few days, and a poll revealed that 82% of Israelis support the execution. Across the country, Israelis held public events including town halls and streets demonstrations, culminating with a rally for Azarya in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square on April 19 that drew what I estimate to be at least 5,000 supporters. From the stage, the square was full as far as the eye could see.

  14. Op-Ed Israel isn't, and will never be, an apartheid state

    By Michael Oren


    Israel is not an apartheid state and will not become one

    May 17, 2014, 5:00 AM |Reporting from Tel Aviv



    The war against Israel has passed through three phases.

    The first was the attempt to annihilate Israel by conventional means. It began with Israel's birth in 1948, when Arab armies nearly captured Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and ended in the 1973 Yom Kippur War, when Israeli forces came within artillery range of Cairo and Damascus.


    The next stage, starting in the early 1970s, sought to cripple Israel through terror. Suicide bombers nearly paralyzed the country, but by 2005 they too were defeated.

    That is when Israel's enemies launched the third, and potentially most devastating, campaign: to isolate, delegitimize and sanction Israel into extinction. And a key weapon in this stage is the hugely destructive word "apartheid."



    Translated from Afrikaans, apartheid means "apart-hood." It stemmed from the deeply held racist beliefs of South African whites who, in the half-century after World War II, imposed strict legal barriers between themselves and all black people. The segregation was total: separate restaurants, separate toilets and drinking fountains, separate houses, hospitals and schools. Blacks were denied the right to vote. The system resembled the American South under Jim Crow and outlived it by several decades. Thereafter, "apartheid" remained synonymous with undiluted racism, second only in hatefulness to Nazism.



    “However unwittingly, those who associate apartheid with Israel are aiding the third and perhaps ultimate stage in the effort to destroy the nation.

    Today, the word "apartheid" is wielded by Israel's enemies to delegitimize the Jewish state. Adversaries point to the separation between Israeli settlers and Palestinian residents of the West Bank, separate Israeli and Palestinian roads, and separate schools, hospitals and legal systems. Although Israelis can elect their leaders, opponents of Israel say, Palestinians cannot. They claim that Israel has erected an "apartheid wall" between Jewish and Arab areas.

    So Trump can't beat Hillary?

    By Russ Vaughn


    Those of you decreeing disaster for the Republican Party in November, Breitbart has compiled some interesting data from the Indiana primary that you may want to ponder before continuing your tirade against Trump. Various sources have been reporting that overall Democrat turnout is down this year, and of that reduced turnout, a significant portion belongs to Bernie Sanders, as it did in Indiana this past Tuesday. Conversely, the Trump movement has been ginning up voter turnout numbers since the primary season started. Tuesday’s numbers bear that out.

    According to Breitbart’s authoritative sources*, Democrat primary turnout in Indiana in 2016 was 628,433, dropping 50.84% from the 2008 turnout, when Hillary last ran there, of 1,278,355. Hillary’s share of that was a 2016 figure of 296,988, down a huge 54.05% from 2008, when she captured 646,282 votes.

    Now compare those dramatic declines in the Democrat vote with the Republican primary history from Indiana. In 2016, the overall Republican turnout in Indiana’s primary was up a whopping 73.35% from 2012, with 1,101,777 votes cast this year as opposed to 635,589 in the earlier primary. Back in 2012, frontrunner Mitt Romney garnered 410,635 votes compared to the total of 587,273 for Donald Trump this year, an increase of 43.02%.

    Looking back at state primaries from earlier this year, this 2016 Republican surge vs. a Democrat decline appears to be a trend that defies the proclamations from pouting pundits and partisan pollsters that Donald can’t do it in November.....

    General election head-to-head polls appear biased against Trump

    By Sierra Rayne


    Dozens of head-to-head general election polls between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have been released over the past several months. Almost all of them purport to show Clinton ahead of Trump by a significant margin.

    As noted by Thomas Lifson, during the past week, Rasmussen Reports has released a couple polls showing either a tie or a slight advantage to Trump. The Rasmussen poll sits in a sea of other recent polling data suggesting that the edge remains with Clinton.

    But are these other polls biased? A look at their methodology suggests that many of them may be....

    The investigation also resulted in much information being gleaned about Hamas’s tunnel activities, the agency added.

    Atauna was involved in the activities of Hamas’s military wing, including planting bombs against IDF soldiers, and mostly, in tunnel activities during recent years.

    “Atauna told his interrogators much about the physical features of tunnels in northern Gaza, about techniques used by Hamas in digging them, and about the use of private homes and institutions by Hamas, from which it digs the tunnels.

    “He also provided information on the means and materials Hamas uses,” the Shin Bet said.

    “During questioning, Atauna pointed to many digging centers, and to tunnel shafts that are supposed to serve the Nuhba [Hamas’s elite unit] operatives for attacks during fighting with Israel,” the agency stated.

    “Atauna said Hamas set up a network of tunnels branching out in Gaza for the passage of fighters and weapons. The tunnel includes waiting rooms and has showers and dining tables, to improve the living conditions of Hamas fighters,” according to the Shin Bet.

    The Izzadin Kassam (Hamas’s military branch) member provided the names of “many operatives who worked with him in the Eastern Battalion of Hamas’s Northern Brigade, and received information on the use of hospitals and civilians for the storage of weapons.”

    The investigation also revealed that Atauna’s home was a storage center for many weapons, including bombs, assault rifles, and suicide bomb vests, which he was supposed to distribute before a large-scale conflict with Israel broke out.

    “Atauna is one of a series of military Hamas members who are under Shin Bet investigations at this time, and these investigations have revealed a lot of internal information on Hamas’s activities in tunnels,” the Shin Bet said

  20. The killing of a Navy SEAL by Islamic State fighters highlights the increasing risks US troops face in Iraq and Syria as they inch ever closer toward the jihadists' frontlines.

    IS fighters on Tuesday used suicide bombers and firepower to blast their way past Kurdish peshmerga forces that US troops were supporting north of Mosul in northern Iraq.

    The fallen SEAL had been visiting a peshmerga encampment near Tal Asquf about three miles (five kilometers) from the front. Officials simply said he was killed by "direct fire."

    Arizona Governor Doug Ducey identified the SEAL as Charlie Keating IV, who attended high school in Phoenix.

    It is only the third time a US serviceman has been killed in combat since the United States launched an international coalition to fight the IS group in August 2014. Another 14 have been wounded.

    Since the start of the campaign, the US military and its coalition partners have launched more than 12,000 air strikes against the self-proclaimed Islamic State group, and the Pentagon has deployed around 5,000 troops in Iraq.

    Here is an article that puts in context WHO Israel, America, Russia and the world is fighting.

    """"A Palestinian suicide bomber has blown himself up at a restaurant in northern Israel, wounding 15 people, in the second such attack in four days.

    The militant group Islamic Jihad, immediately claimed responsibility for the blast, which tore through the restaurant in the town of Kiryat Motzkin, south of the port of Haifa.""

    Kerry told reporters Tuesday if Syria doesn’t begin the process of removing Assad by Aug. 1, there will be serious consequences, The Associated Press reports.

    “If Assad does not adhere to this, there will clearly be repercussions,” Kerry said. “One of them may be the total destruction of the cease-fire and then go back to war. I don’t think Russia wants that. I don’t think Assad is going to benefit from that. There may be even other repercussions being discussed. That is for the future.”

    The Household Survey part of the report, the part I always reference, actually showed a decline in the employed category, as well as in the participation cohort.

    The only positives were an increase of 0.3% in hourly wages, and a one tenth increase in average weekly hours worked. The increase in wages, and hours worked, probably cancels out the loss of jobs, but I can't prove it because my new, wonderful microsoft 10 won't let me access my calculator.

      From the first page of a google search titled 'Settlers kill Palestinians'...

      NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers killed a Palestinian toddler and injured four others early Friday morning after setting their home ablaze near Nablus in the occupied West Bank in what the Israeli leadership called an act of terrorism.

      http://maannews.com/Content.aspx?id=766758


      Dozens of Jewish settlers on Sunday forced their way into Al-Aqsa Mosque complex in occupied East Jerusalem, a Palestinian guard of the holy site said.
      "A group of Jewish students stormed the complex along with Israeli troops who wandered into the courtyards and verbally attacked the Palestinian religious students within," the guard, who asked not to be named, told Anadolu Agency.
      According to the guard, the Israeli police imposed restrictions on the entry of Muslim worshippers into the compound since the early hours of the day.
      In another incident, a Jewish settler ran over two Palestinian children near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank. The settler fled the scene after the incident.
      One of two Palestinian girls that had been run over by the settler earlier Sunday died of her injuries, a Palestinian medical official said Sunday.

    Trump’s Idea to Cut Debt: Get Creditors to Accept Less

    Experts cast doubt on Mr. Trump’s remarks about the national debt, which might show the limits of translating his business acumen into the world of government finance.



    The reason America is the go to place in troubling times is the illusion of safety it provides. Would Trump's plan dispel that illusion? Or, is Trump merely stating the obvious a little earlier than anyone wanted to admit?

      Trump did make one salient statement. If interest rates go up our debt will skyrocket as interest on that debt doubles in the next few year. It's the simple mathematics of compounding and it will present another simple fact, we will owe hundreds of billions more and will end up getting zip for it.

    One thing anyone can notice is the tall trees, with logging & replanting and reforesting you prevent the forest from entering into overgrowth and decay , green movement went against logging reducing it to zero, after 40 years you see this tall trees and dry undergrowth with no management whatsoever waiting to detonate as a time bomb , Canada Needs a forest management reform , and the urgent removal of certain political figures from power . Remember the Lessons from Yellowstone fires it was the same problem , not knowing how to manage the natural forest cycles brings this type of disaster.

      There is Big News out this way on the Salmon/Steelhead Recovery Front.

      A Federal Judge has now given the Army Corps of Engineering and the others TWO YEARS to come up with a workable recovery plan, having finally gotten pissed off at all the foot dragging.

      This Judge is considering ordering the removal of one of the Snake River dams if no plan is forthcoming.

      If even one damn is taken out Lewiston, Idaho is no longer a 'seaport' and the wheat, peas, etc are going to be riding the railroad, or trucked, the log mill will similarly take a huge hit, and the local economy will take a huge hit.

      Nor has the Judge given much thought to what replaces the lost power. I advocate replacing with it a nuclear power plant at the same site.

      The Judge gets the power to do this from some Environmental/Save The Species Act passed without much though by the wisdom of Congress long ago, most of the Congressmen now having died.

    1. I realize the benefits of managing forests particularly regarding fire prevention. Canada has many many acres of forests where management is not feasible. On the larger scale of forestry fires have been shown to be a good thing in the evolution of forests - nature's way of managing itself. Not so good for the critters involved however.

    Violence?


    Here are the posts that precipitated your umbrage...starting with yours...

    But I hope, someday soon, some crazy jihadist, attacks someone you love and you will LEARN better...

    Me violence?

    You are the one who applauds the violence in the ME. Popcorn anyone? How many people here besides myself have you wished violence on. How many LOLs have we seen from you when someone is killed over there? Every post you put up about the 450,000 killed in Syria is ended with a LOL. Take a look at this stream from the beginning.

    I apologize for things the US does whenever they end up in taking innocent lives; yet, you don't berate me for that. No, the only time you get your panties in a twist is if I criticize Israel.

    You said,

    When Israelis start murdering innocent Palestinians going to market, eating a pizza?

    Then you'd have a point.


    To prove my point, I gave you examples of it. And that really pissed you off. When someone points out the direction Israel is heading, that they are locked in a struggle with no end, you get defensive but you offer up only these solutions...

    Maybe Israel should do what Nelson Mandela did?

    Necklace a few thousand savages?

    Bring the marshmallows



    Violence?

    If someone criticizes Israeli policy or the current right wing government, you accuse them of anti-Semitism. You rationalize and defend their actions, not just once but every time.

    To me, the points I make are obvious. You don't need architecture to see what's going on in the WB. You simply have to look at a map. You constantly spout off about the Oslo Accords but as I've pointed out you haven't a clue what's in it. I could provide you with a single map of the West Bank that would explain everything Deuce tried to show in that video above. All you would have to do is look at it. But what's the point, you wouldn't. If you did glance at it, you wouldn't immediately excuse, rationalize, and justify. You are not open to discussion.

    Here's how I responded to your post (the first one cited above)...

    You are a complete a-hole, WiO, but I still don't wish the same on you and yours.

    You are what you are. I am what I am.



    Given the vitriol you spout here daily, you can see why being called violent by you doesn't really impress me all that much.

  53. Doug, don't know if you've heard this, but the Federal Judge that made the infamous 'Spotted Owl Decision' came clean before he died (I think he has died), apologized to all those small logging communities that got wiped out because of his decision, and said it was the dumbest ruling he'd ever made in his life.

    The idea was that the Spotted Own needed all this old growth forest and was being pushed to extinction by the harvesting of same. Not that I'm for logging all old growth forests, I like them, but, but the Spotted Owl was taking a hit not from logging but from competition with another smaller more aggressive sort of owl.

    Where this owl came from and how it showed up I don't know for certain but based on my knowledge of things US Fish and Game, those morons probably brought it in.

    Here in Idaho of course all the elk are now dead because we 're-introduced' (actually introduced, they were not native to this area) the North Canadian Gray Wolf, a horror monster to other living things.

    Don't get me going on how Fish and Game totally fucked the fishing in North Idaho's major lakes....
