I am going to call for a Global Boycott of all Israeli products and exports. This will include products and items produced by corporations in the Untied States and elsewhere, owned and operated by openly Christian Zionists who are supporting this bullshit in Gaza.

It was not that long ago that I wanted to go to Israel and meet with other artists in the hope of showing the world that meeting with real humans was still our best option for peace. I no longer feel this way

If anyone has information on links relating to products exported from Israel, including bar codes, contractors who sub-contract out to Israeli companies etc. We need this information so we can get started. 

It won't be easy and even if you can only stop purchasing one item made in Israel and replacing it with one made in your own country it is a start. This is not a competition to prove who is the mostest-boycotter. A start is a start.

(ps: no Jew bashing please) and just so people know, I am not pro Hamas or give a shit about the Palestinian state/leadership. I am only pointing out who has the most ability to murder the most innocent people and this is why I am Boycotting Israel. 

You will never see me wave a Palestinian flag any more than an Israeli one. I have seen some well intentioned people waving Palestinian flags and duped into using Palestinian flag avatars/profile pics. This is about human beings, and not governments.

I have no doubt that Israel would be destroyed by Palestinian Government Troops if the tables were turned and that would be just as evil. All you have to do is look at the viciousness of the Arab League in 1967 towards Israel. This boycott is only about saving innocent lives, and not politics or religions.

      Only the Israelis can scream that they are the victims while committing genocide and wiping Palestine off the map. This whole tunnels excuse is a blatant lie, if that were the case why didn't they just block them up from their side. This is just another lame excuse to kill Palestinians and take more land.
      The only reason that Israel is getting away with all of this is because of our Governments Complicity.

      Rachel Corie: An American Conscience
      Precisely! Zionism would not be able to survive, if it were not for the OVERWHELMING SUPPORT given to this racist extremist Jewish ideology by the international Jewish community. The overwhelming majority of Jews support Zionism and Israel (Isra-HELL). Therefore it can be said with complete justification that Jews are largely speaking Zionist extremists. p.s. Zionism finds it's roots in the extreme racism of the Jewish Talmud

  2. BRAVO! Well done Thomas you have my full support in this boycott. The Israeli army terror killing machine with its ruthless efficiency must be the envy of every racist tyrant on earth and they are a few of those in every country.Isreals treatment of the Palestinians could be the template for dictators in the future .submit or die .you will learn to like your prison and fear your master. Gaza is just a holding pen before they decide how to solve the Palestinian problem, or the final solution. I applaud your fearless and public declaration on this horror administered with scientific precision by Israel on a dispossessed and trapped people.



    2. I'm so sick and tired of hearing about anti-Semitism raising its ugly head, what about Genocide! surely that is far worse. The Zionist's can say what the hell they like about Palestinians but you are not aloud to say anything derogative about them. David Irving was right, the ADL is able to lock people up for speaking the truth or having a different opinion from their Zionist version of history. When are people going to wake up, you need to see what's going on. The Germans may have lost the war but Fascism is alive and well today. The Jewish State of Israel is nothing more than a Fascist state that wants to wipe the Palestinian People off the face of the earth. Thank you Joey Barton for speaking the truth on Question Time I wish there was a lot more people like you.

  3. Love the neutral stance, right on. protest violence & genocide!

    1. “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.” Bishop Desmond Tutu

  4. http://www.viewzone.com/kosher.html - this article explains how consumers globally are unwittingly buying Kosher products thereby paying a Kosher tax which fund-back may be being diverted to support of Israel. It's quite a shocking exercise to examine one's own unsuspecting kitchen in the far west of Europa to find the Kosher logos on the products one is picking up off the supermarket shelves on a regular basis! For example : ORGANIC Madagascar Bourbon VANILLA EXTract - Nielsen-Massey; TATE+LYLE Fairtrade(!) CANE sugars - brown, icing, caster etc; Worcester Sauce . . ..

    1. Cheers mate thanks for that need all the information I can get

  5. -

    You cannot see clearly if you stand by Israel or Palestine. To be clear you have to be neutral!

    Problem is the human nature and the state of human emotional and understanding of who and what they are. It is the matter of changing humans to realize they are no different from each other and should live in peace and get along. As Thomas said (in a nutshell): If Palestinians had the same power as Israel has they would have done the same thing, if not worst. The task is to create a new human consciousness that would reject the way we presently threat one another.

    To do that we need to teach man that there is only One God and He has sent all Major religions on earth. So humans are all His Children and so they should treat one another as the Father sees them: A Being that is here to learn how to return Home).

    For this reason Mission Of Maitreya invites everyone to see how this is possible and why all religions of the world have come from the same source, etc. If we can realize/prove this we might be able to create the New Man who sees everyone as a part of the same God/Universe and will treated everyone as equal and deserving!

    Note: We surely support this boycutt 100%, and support Thomas's stand as being neutral toward either party!


    1. Thanks but no thanks I don't intend on ever joining the the New World Order. My fellow Human beings are being slaughtered of course I'm going to take sides there is no neutrality in this you moron The Israelis are slaughtering Palestinians what person in their right mind would ever take a neutral stance on what is happening in Gaza. Are you aware of Israels past, first they invaded Palestine then they brutally raped pillaged and murdered the Palestinian people this was an act of Genocide on a defenseless people who had no millitary protection whatsoever. They have stolen the land off the Palestinians and now they want to wipe them off the face of the earth. What fucking planet are you on mate because it's not this one.

  6. In order to make this boycott effective, we need to stop purchasing all American-made products, too, since the U.S. funds Israel's wars.

    1. Yes I agree we should write to their Embassy to let them know that this is not acceptable

  7. How dare you compare the Palestinians to those murdering bastards, those so called Jews have lived in peace with the Palestinians for centuries up until they Brutally and Viciously stole the land from the Palestinians. And as for six day war it was the Israelis that started that war they attacked the USS Liberty and were going to blame the Egyptians as a pretext to start a war with Egypt but fortunately the survivors were able to tell the world exactly what had happened.In the war's first few hours the Israelis destroyed the Egyptian Air Force while it's aircraft were still on the ground. By the evening the Jordanian Air force was also largley destroyed. Israel was neither under attack nor under threat of attack. They used staged air raid sirens as props in waging war by way of deception. These circumstances were staged-managed to make both Israelis and foreign observers believe the Jewish state was endangered, while Tel Aviv annexed land belonging to its neighbours that it still occupies four decades later. Lets be honest here the Jews think they have a God given right to the land of Palestine based on their interpretaion of the Bible yet there is no Historical fact to prove this. The Palestinians however have lived on that land for centuries in Peace that is a historical fact. I hope the world is starting to wake up to the Evil that these monsters are doing in the name of their religion even though it is not based on fact.

  8. Read Guilt By Association By Jeff Gates you will soon realise that the Jewish state of Israel is one of Deception, Hatered and Propoganda. These people make Hittler look like a saint!

  9. The Palestinians have a right to live in Palestine not like the so called Jews who think they have a right to own everything. Their religion is one of hate and segregation just read the Talmud you will see what they really think of all non Jews. The world needs to know just what these people are really about they have no respect for any other race on the planet. They are quick to call anyone anti-semetic who stands up to them or tries to tell the truth about them and their hateful ways. If the World really knew what these people have done and are still doing now you wouldn't feel so sorry for what happened to them during the 2nd World War, which I might add is debateable.

    1. The world knows that the Palestinian people are the true desendants of Abraham and not the Khazarian Johnny come lately AshkeNAZI Jews

  10. You should all know by now that what is force fed on main stream media is not the truth I have little doubt that the Israelis themselves were to blame for the kidnapping and murdering of those three Jewish boys which they then used as a pretext to slaughter hundreds if not thousands of Innocent Palestinians. It sickens me to my stomach to hear those pricks Cameron and Obama Defending the right of Israel to protect itself! Protect itself from WHAT slings and stones and homemade rockets! The world was quick to vilify Saddam for using mustard gas on the Kurds what about Israel's use of White Phosphoros on the Palestinians, you dont hear the press or the public up in arms about that now do you! I for one am Pro Palestinian I believe in the Sovereignty of the Palestinian People and hope that one day they will return to their rightful homeland. And for all those people who have died at the hands of these Murders May your souls live for ever in Peace and Harmony with God, may you always know Happiness and Joy for all Eternity. And for those grieveing familys who are left behind that have to deal with the loss of their loved ones and are suffering under the brutal regime of Israhell the world is waking up we know what you are going through we do care Stay Strong my Brothers and Sisters we hear your Cries and we see your Tears they are not in vain x.

    1. http://topinfopost.com/2014/07/27/israel-admits-hamas-didnt-kidnap-the-3-israeli-teens-after-all
      Writing for Al Jazeera, Musa al-Gharbi argued that Israel was deliberately provoking Hamas:
      All the illegal and immoral actions related to Operation Brother’s Keeper were justified under the premise of finding and saving the missing teens whom the Israeli government knew to be dead — cynically exploiting the tragedy to whip up public outcry in order to provoke and then confront Hamas. This pattern of deception continues under the ongoing military offensive in Gaza. For example, last week in collaboration with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi and Abbas, in its efforts to alienate Hamas, Israel announced a bad-faith cease-fire proposal, which Hamas was not consulted on and never agreed to but whose violation supposedly justified Israel’s expansion and intensification of the military campaign into Gaza.

  11. Wow. You people are so very blind. You see Evil as Good and Good as Evil. It is truly a sign of the times. Live on in your Alice in Wonderland ignorance. The Truth will amaze you when all is done. Boycott and hate away....it doesn't and won't matter. Perhaps this is your psychopathy.

    1. Don't be too sure of yourself just because you have had control for some time now by way of deception doesn't mean to say it will always be like this. The truth will out and when it does the world will turn on you. When the American people wake up from their slumber and realise that their own government has betrayed them and they let you bleed them dry and sent their sons and daughters to fight your battles you will not be able to continue with your heinous ways any longer.

    2. Your the one who is blind do you think we were born yesterday, the Jewish Zionists have always been the agressors, right from the get go and I don't mean since 1948. The Jewish Zionists have played a part in every revolution dating back to the Napoleonic War which was bankrolled by the Zionist Rothschilds and the Bolshevik Revolution where 20 million Christians were slaughtered by the Jewish Bolsheviks during the 2nd World War which was also bankrolled by the Jewish Zionists of Wall Street. I could go on but I think I will give others a chance.

      "By Way of Deception Thou Shalt Wage War"
      In 1927, Ernest Oppenheimer, a German immigrant to Britain who had earlier founded mining giant Anglo American plc with American financier J.P. Morgan, took over De Beers. He built and consolidated the company's global monopoly over the diamond industry until his retirement. During this time, he was involved in a number of controversies, including price fixing, antitrust behaviour and an allegation of not releasing industrial diamonds for the US war effort during World War II.

    2. Miko Peled was born in Jersusalem into a famous and influential Israeli Zionist family. His father was a famous General in the Israeli Army, of which Miko also served his time. When Miko's niece was killed by Palestinian suicide bombers, you may have expected the family to put Palestinians at fault, but surprisingly they blamed the state of Israel, and their violent torturing and persecution for driving people to such sadness that they would take their own lives.

      Through his father's deep knowledge of the Israeli war of terror, together with his own research, Miko Peled ruins the myths surrounding the Israel and Palestine situation, and delivers a truth so damning that many Jews and Israel supporters will not be able to bear it. He reveals facts such as the original expelled Jews are not the ones returning, and they are not their descendants either, covers the double standards regarding the right of return, which doesn't apply to Palestinians, and dispels the myth that there has been a conflict for ages by producing proof that it was peaceful up until 1947 when Israel launched their illegal attacks.

      Miko is just one of the many modern day Jews against Zionism and the state of Israel, and with the information he delivers in this astounding talk, it is not difficult to see why more and more Jews are rejecting Zionism and calling for the dismantling of Israel. It is a true eye-opener for anyone who has for too long been blinded by the fake misinformation given by the mainstream media, and the truths come straight from the heartland where he has spent many years documenting the real story.

    3. "I have no doubt that Israel would be destroyed by Palestinian Government Troops if the tables were turned and that would be just as evil. All you have to do is look at the viciousness of the Arab League in 1967 towards Israel". Thomas Sheridan.

      This sort of rhetoric is not going to help the Palestinians one bit, why did you feel the need to post such a comment which, I might add is false. For your information and those who are not aware of the history behind the illegal State of Israel I shall enlighten you with some facts. As soon as the UN resolution of a Jewish Homeland was accepted the Jewish forces, the Zionist forces what were called the Haganah, began a massive campaign of ethnic cleansing. The myth that we are told about 1947 is that in 1947 after the United Nations finally recognised the right of the Jewish people to have their own state the Arab Army attacked intending to destroy the fledgling state. Yet somehow between the end of 1947 and the end of 1948 the Zionist forces were able to conquer almost 80% of the country, destroy over 500 towns and villages, including schools, mosques, churches and homes and exiled almost 1,000,000 people within a 12 month period, how did they do this if they were being attacked by a Muslim Army from the outside. If you look at the facts you'll realise that, in 1947 the Zionist community had quite a substantial military force that was close to 40,000 armed men that were well trained and well indoctrinated. There was no equivalent on the Palestinian side; the Palestinians had never had an army or a military force. To this day the Palestinians have never had an army or a military force. The Arab army didn't enter the war until May 1948 by which time, most of the ethnic cleansing by the Zionist Army had already taken place; the war had been going on for six months prior to them joining the war. This is the myth that nobody takes the time to question or investigate. Miko Peled

    Miko Peled Myths about the Jewish State

  22. How Israel brought Gaza to the brink of humanitarian catastrophe
    Oxford professor of international relations Avi Shlaim served in the Israeli army and has never questioned the state's legitimacy. But its merciless assault on Gaza has led him to devastating conclusions
    Avi Shlaim
    Wednesday 7 January 2009
    The only way to make sense of Israel's senseless war in Gaza is through understanding the historical context. Establishing the state of Israel in May 1948 involved a monumental injustice to the Palestinians. British officials bitterly resented American partisanship on behalf of the infant state. On 2 June 1948, Sir John Troutbeck wrote to the foreign secretary, Ernest Bevin, that the Americans were responsible for the creation of a gangster state headed by "an utterly unscrupulous set of leaders". I used to think that this judgment was too harsh but Israel's vicious assault on the people of Gaza, and the Bush administration's complicity in this assault, have reopened the question.

  23. I write as someone who served loyally in the Israeli army in the mid-1960s and who has never questioned the legitimacy of the state of Israel within its pre-1967 borders. What I utterly reject is the Zionist colonial project beyond the Green Line. The Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip in the aftermath of the June 1967 war had very little to do with security and everything to do with territorial expansionism. The aim was to establish Greater Israel through permanent political, economic and military control over the Palestinian territories. And the result has been one of the most prolonged and brutal military occupations of modern times.
    Four decades of Israeli control did incalculable damage to the economy of the Gaza Strip. With a large population of 1948 refugees crammed into a tiny strip of land, with no infrastructure or natural resources, Gaza's prospects were never bright. Gaza, however, is not simply a case of economic under-development but a uniquely cruel case of deliberate de-development. To use the Biblical phrase, Israel turned the people of Gaza into the hewers of wood and the drawers of water, into a source of cheap labour and a captive market for Israeli goods. The development of local industry was actively impeded so as to make it impossible for the Palestinians to end their subordination to Israel and to establish the economic underpinnings essential for real political independence.

  24. Gaza is a classic case of colonial exploitation in the post-colonial era. Jewish settlements in occupied territories are immoral, illegal and an insurmountable obstacle to peace. They are at once the instrument of exploitation and the symbol of the hated occupation. In Gaza, the Jewish settlers numbered only 8,000 in 2005 compared with 1.4 million local residents. Yet the settlers controlled 25% of the territory, 40% of the arable land and the lion's share of the scarce water resources. Cheek by jowl with these foreign intruders, the majority of the local population lived in abject poverty and unimaginable misery. Eighty per cent of them still subsist on less than $2 a day. The living conditions in the strip remain an affront to civilised values, a powerful precipitant to resistance and a fertile breeding ground for political extremism.

  25. In August 2005 a Likud government headed by Ariel Sharon staged a unilateral Israeli pullout from Gaza, withdrawing all 8,000 settlers and destroying the houses and farms they had left behind. Hamas, the Islamic resistance movement, conducted an effective campaign to drive the Israelis out of Gaza. The withdrawal was a humiliation for the Israeli Defence Forces. To the world, Sharon presented the withdrawal from Gaza as a contribution to peace based on a two-state solution. But in the year after, another 12,000 Israelis settled on the West Bank, further reducing the scope for an independent Palestinian state. Land-grabbing and peace-making are simply incompatible. Israel had a choice and it chose land over peace.
    The real purpose behind the move was to redraw unilaterally the borders of Greater Israel by incorporating the main settlement blocs on the West Bank to the state of Israel. Withdrawal from Gaza was thus not a prelude to a peace deal with the Palestinian Authority but a prelude to further Zionist expansion on the West Bank. It was a unilateral Israeli move undertaken in what was seen, mistakenly in my view, as an Israeli national interest. Anchored in a fundamental rejection of the Palestinian national identity, the withdrawal from Gaza was part of a long-term effort to deny the Palestinian people any independent political existence on their land.

  26. Israel's settlers were withdrawn but Israeli soldiers continued to control all access to the Gaza Strip by land, sea and air. Gaza was converted overnight into an open-air prison. From this point on, the Israeli air force enjoyed unrestricted freedom to drop bombs, to make sonic booms by flying low and breaking the sound barrier, and to terrorise the hapless inhabitants of this prison.
    Israel likes to portray itself as an island of democracy in a sea of authoritarianism. Yet Israel has never in its entire history done anything to promote democracy on the Arab side and has done a great deal to undermine it. Israel has a long history of secret collaboration with reactionary Arab regimes to suppress Palestinian nationalism. Despite all the handicaps, the Palestinian people succeeded in building the only genuine democracy in the Arab world with the possible exception of Lebanon. In January 2006, free and fair elections for the Legislative Council of the Palestinian Authority brought to power a Hamas-led government. Israel, however, refused to recognise the democratically elected government, claiming that Hamas is purely and simply a terrorist organisation.

  27. America and the EU shamelessly joined Israel in ostracising and demonising the Hamas government and in trying to bring it down by withholding tax revenues and foreign aid. A surreal situation thus developed with a significant part of the international community imposing economic sanctions not against the occupier but against the occupied, not against the oppressor but against the oppressed.
    As so often in the tragic history of Palestine, the victims were blamed for their own misfortunes. Israel's propaganda machine persistently purveyed the notion that the Palestinians are terrorists, that they reject coexistence with the Jewish state, that their nationalism is little more than antisemitism, that Hamas is just a bunch of religious fanatics and that Islam is incompatible with democracy. But the simple truth is that the Palestinian people are a normal people with normal aspirations. They are no better but they are no worse than any other national group. What they aspire to, above all, is a piece of land to call their own on which to live in freedom and dignity.

  29. Like other radical movements, Hamas began to moderate its political programme following its rise to power. From the ideological rejectionism of its charter, it began to move towards pragmatic accommodation of a two-state solution. In March 2007, Hamas and Fatah formed a national unity government that was ready to negotiate a long-term ceasefire with Israel. Israel, however, refused to negotiate with a government that included Hamas.
    It continued to play the old game of divide and rule between rival Palestinian factions. In the late 1980s, Israel had supported the nascent Hamas in order to weaken Fatah, the secular nationalist movement led by Yasser Arafat. Now Israel began to encourage the corrupt and pliant Fatah leaders to overthrow their religious political rivals and recapture power. Aggressive American neoconservatives participated in the sinister plot to instigate a Palestinian civil war. Their meddling was a major factor in the collapse of the national unity government and in driving Hamas to seize power in Gaza in June 2007 to pre-empt a Fatah coup

  30. The war unleashed by Israel on Gaza on 27 December was the culmination of a series of clashes and confrontations with the Hamas government. In a broader sense, however, it is a war between Israel and the Palestinian people, because the people had elected the party to power. The declared aim of the war is to weaken Hamas and to intensify the pressure until its leaders agree to a new ceasefire on Israel's terms. The undeclared aim is to ensure that the Palestinians in Gaza are seen by the world simply as a humanitarian problem and thus to derail their struggle for independence and statehood.
    The timing of the war was determined by political expediency. A general election is scheduled for 10 February and, in the lead-up to the election, all the main contenders are looking for an opportunity to prove their toughness. The army top brass had been champing at the bit to deliver a crushing blow to Hamas in order to remove the stain left on their reputation by the failure of the war against Hezbollah in Lebanon in July 2006. Israel's cynical leaders could also count on apathy and impotence of the pro-western Arab regimes and on blind support from President Bush in the twilight of his term in the White House. Bush readily obliged by putting all the blame for the crisis on Hamas, vetoing proposals at the UN Security Council for an immediate ceasefire and issuing Israel with a free pass to mount a ground invasion of Gaza.

  31. As always, mighty Israel claims to be the victim of Palestinian aggression but the sheer asymmetry of power between the two sides leaves little room for doubt as to who is the real victim. This is indeed a conflict between David and Goliath but the Biblical image has been inverted - a small and defenceless Palestinian David faces a heavily armed, merciless and overbearing Israeli Goliath. The resort to brute military force is accompanied, as always, by the shrill rhetoric of victimhood and a farrago of self-pity overlaid with self-righteousness. In Hebrew this is known as the syndrome of bokhim ve-yorim, "crying and shooting".
    To be sure, Hamas is not an entirely innocent party in this conflict. Denied the fruit of its electoral victory and confronted with an unscrupulous adversary, it has resorted to the weapon of the weak - terror. Militants from Hamas and Islamic Jihad kept launching Qassam rocket attacks against Israeli settlements near the border with Gaza until Egypt brokered a six-month ceasefire last June. The damage caused by these primitive rockets is minimal but the psychological impact is immense, prompting the public to demand protection from its government. Under the circumstances, Israel had the right to act in self-defence but its response to the pinpricks of rocket attacks was totally disproportionate. The figures speak for themselves. In the three years after the withdrawal from Gaza, 11 Israelis were killed by rocket fire. On the other hand, in 2005-7 alone, the IDF killed 1,290 Palestinians in Gaza, including 222 children.

  32. Whatever the numbers, killing civilians is wrong. This rule applies to Israel as much as it does to Hamas, but Israel's entire record is one of unbridled and unremitting brutality towards the inhabitants of Gaza. Israel also maintained the blockade of Gaza after the ceasefire came into force which, in the view of the Hamas leaders, amounted to a violation of the agreement. During the ceasefire, Israel prevented any exports from leaving the strip in clear violation of a 2005 accord, leading to a sharp drop in employment opportunities. Officially, 49.1% of the population is unemployed. At the same time, Israel restricted drastically the number of trucks carrying food, fuel, cooking-gas canisters, spare parts for water and sanitation plants, and medical supplies to Gaza. It is difficult to see how starving and freezing the civilians of Gaza could protect the people on the Israeli side of the border. But even if it did, it would still be immoral, a form of collective punishment that is strictly forbidden by international humanitarian law.
    The brutality of Israel's soldiers is fully matched by the mendacity of its spokesmen. Eight months before launching the current war on Gaza, Israel established a National Information Directorate. The core messages of this directorate to the media are that Hamas broke the ceasefire agreements; that Israel's objective is the defence of its population; and that Israel's forces are taking the utmost care not to hurt innocent civilians. Israel's spin doctors have been remarkably successful in getting this message across. But, in essence, their propaganda is a pack of lies.

  33. A wide gap separates the reality of Israel's actions from the rhetoric of its spokesmen. It was not Hamas but the IDF that broke the ceasefire. It di d so by a raid into Gaza on 4 November that killed six Hamas men. Israel's objective is not just the defence of its population but the eventual overthrow of the Hamas government in Gaza by turning the people against their rulers. And far from taking care to spare civilians, Israel is guilty of indiscriminate bombing and of a three-year-old blockade that has brought the inhabitants of Gaza, now 1.5 million, to the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe.
    The Biblical injunction of an eye for an eye is savage enough. But Israel's insane offensive against Gaza seems to follow the logic of an eye for an eyelash. After eight days of bombing, with a death toll of more than 400 Palestinians and four Israelis, the gung-ho cabinet ordered a land invasion of Gaza the consequences of which are incalculable.
    No amount of military escalation can buy Israel immunity from rocket attacks from the military wing of Hamas. Despite all the death and destruction that Israel has inflicted on them, they kept up their resistance and they kept firing their rockets. This is a movement that glorifies victimhood and martyrdom. There is simply no military solution to the conflict between the two communities. The problem with Israel's concept of security is that it denies even the most elementary security to the other community. The only way for Israel to achieve security is not through shooting but through talks with Hamas, which has repeatedly declared its readiness to negotiate a long-term ceasefire with the Jewish state within its pre-1967 borders for 20, 30, or even 50 years. Israel has rejected this offer for the same reason it spurned the Arab League peace plan of 2002, which is still on the table: it involves concessions and compromises.

    This brief review of Israel's record over the past four decades makes it difficult to resist the conclusion that it has become a rogue state with "an utterly unscrupulous set of leaders". A rogue state habitually violates international law, possesses weapons of mass destruction and practises terrorism - the use of violence against civilians for political purposes. Israel fulfils all of these three criteria; the cap fits and it must wear it. Israel's real aim is not peaceful coexistence with its Palestinian neighbours but military domination. It keeps compounding the mistakes of the past with new and more disastrous ones. Politicians, like everyone else, are of course free to repeat the lies and mistakes of the past. But it is not mandatory to do so.

  36. The Generals Son
    An honest Israeli Jew tells the Real Truth about Israel

  37. This is a book review of the General Son by Miko Peled by a customer on Amazon the words speak for itself.
    I have read many books by Israelis who are opponents to the occupation and Israel's policies of ethnic cleansing, but this is the first time I read a book by a General's son! The son of a well- known General in the Israeli army who played an important role in the establishment of Israel and the war of 1967. The book is divided into five parts. First, the writer gives us a full picture of his roots, his family and his father. All of who were pure Zionists. He was raised to be proud of his Zionism and his father is considered a hero for his roles in the Israeli army. Then the writer talks more about his life, how he excelled in karate, how he moved to the US, and how he started his journey of knowledge and eye opening to the truth about the Israel/Palestine conflict. He started to participate in clubs for peace talks, he tried to promote peace between the two sides, and finally he made it to the West Bank and then Gaza. He saw the occupation as a reality on the ground, he lived with Palestinians and saw how they suffer, he saw how the Israeli army, which he was taught to be proud of, treats Palestine. While reading this book, I couldn't but feel impressed by this person who went against the grain. This person was raised on specific principles and stereotypes about his country, the hero army, and the other enemy. This was all supported by almost everyone in his surroundings, in school, in his community and in a whole country. How much courage did he have to really think about it and open his heart and his eyes to see the ugly truth and occupation? How much courage did he have to face most people of his country- who are known to exclude and be aggressive towards anyone who dare to speak about it? I know Israeli peace activists who call for peace, but based on the 1967 borders. For us Palestinians, the issue is not about only the 67 borders, the issue needs to go back to its roots, to Haifa and Yaffa, to Safad and Beesan..Thank you Mr. Peled for acknowledging that this is a Palestinian land! Thank you for speaking out, thank you for being brave and for writing this book.

  38. Why haven't you posted anymore comments, I find it hard to believe that there have been no more comments since the ones that were last posted. Gaza needs all the help It can get you need to spread the word. surely you must see whats going on you should know by now how the Israeli regime works.

  39. SRAELI spokesmen have their work cut out explaining how they have killed more than 1,000 Palestinians in Gaza, most of them civilians, compared with just three civilians killed in Israel by Hamas rocket and mortar fire.

    But on television and radio and in newspapers, Israeli government spokesmen such as Mark Regev appear slicker and less aggressive than their predecessors, who were often visibly indifferent to how many Palestinians were killed.

    There is a reason for this enhancement of the PR skills of Israeli spokesmen. Going by what they say, the playbook they are using is a professional, well-researched and confidential study on how to influence the media and public opinion in America and Europe. Written by the expert Republican pollster and political strategist Dr Frank Luntz, the study was commissioned five years ago by a group called The Israel Project, with offices in the US and Israel, for use by those "who are on the front lines of fighting the media war for Israel".

    Every one of the 112 pages in the booklet is marked "not for distribution or publication" and it is easy to see why. The Luntz report, officially entitled "The Israel project's 2009 Global Language Dictionary, was leaked almost immediately to Newsweek Online, but its true importance has seldom been appreciated. It should be required reading for everybody, especially journalists, interested in any aspect of Israeli policy because of its "dos and don'ts" for Israeli spokesmen.

    Gaza market bombed during Israel army 'pause'
    At least 17 killed and 200 injured in Shujayea, an area Israel said was not included in four-hour humanitarian window.
    Last updated: 30 Jul 2014 17:28
    At least 17 Palestinians have been killed and 200 wounded in the bombardment of a market near Gaza City during an "humanitarian pause" unilaterally announced by Israel.
    The attack came shortly after the Israeli army said it was observing a four-hour Wednesday ceasefire from midday GMT, or 3pm local time.

    Ashraf al-Qedra, a spokesman for Gaza's health ministry, said missiles hit the busy market in the battered Shujayea neighbourhood, in the east of Gaza Strip.

    An Israeli military spokeswoman told Al Jazeera that it was checking the reports but added that Shujayea - which was heavilly bombarded last week killing of scores of people - was not in the areas covered by its humanitarian pause.

    "The first shell hit, and people immediately started evacuating the wounded," a man called Abu Maysarah told the AFP news agency. "They (the Israelis) saw them evacuating the wounded, and they struck them again."

    Hamas condemned the deaths as "another blatant massacre".

    "The Israelis are committing deliberate acts of mass murder... the blood of innocent people in Gaza will not be shed in vain and the hand of justice will reach all of those who planned and carried out these massacres."

    Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston, reporting from Gaza City, said that the death toll was likely to increase given the numbers injured.

    "This attack was on the outskirts of Shujayea," she said. "People are still living on the edges of the area. Horrific scenes have been reported."

    However, Johnston said there had been no let-up in the attacks during the Israeli pause.

    "There has been a lot of death in the last two hours," she said as the pause was coming to a close. "The ceasefire has not been particularly useful. There has been no change - up to 100 people have been killed today alone."

    According to Gaza's Health Ministry, 1317 Palestinians have been killed and more than 7340 injured since Israel's Protective Edge offensive in the Gaza Strip began on July 8.

    Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri had earlier dismissed the Israeli pause. He told Reuters: "The ceasefire Israel declared is for the media and has no value because it does not include the areas of conflict on the border."

  41. Frankie Boyle's open letter

    Obviously, it feels strange to be on the moral high ground but I feel a response is required to the BBC Trust's cowardly rebuke of my jokes about Palestine.

    As always, I heard nothing from the BBC but read in a newspaper that editorial procedures would be tightened further to stop jokes with anything at all to say getting past the censors.

    In case you missed it, the jokes in question are:

    "I've been studying Israeli Army Martial Arts. I now know 16 ways to kick a Palestinian woman in the back."

    "People think that the Middle East is very complex but I have an analogy that sums it up quite well. If you imagine that Palestine is a big cake, well... that cake is being punched to pieces by a very angry Jew."

    I think the problem here is that the show's producers will have thought that Israel, an aggressive, terrorist state with a nuclear arsenal, was an appropriate target for satire.

    The Trust's ruling is essentially a note from their line managers. It says that if you imagine that a state busily going about the destruction of an entire people is fair game, you are mistaken. Israel is out of bounds.

    The BBC refused to broadcast a humanitarian appeal in 2009 to help residents of Gaza rebuild their homes.

    It's tragic for such a great institution but it is now cravenly afraid of giving offence and vulnerable to any kind of well drilled lobbying.

    I told the jokes on a Radio 4 show called "Political Animal". That title seems to promise provocative comedy with a point of view.

    In practice the BBC wish to deliver the flavour of political comedy with none of the content. The most recent offering I saw was BBC2's "The Bubble". It looked exactly like a show where funny people sat around and did jokes about the news. Except the thrust of the format was that nobody had read the papers.

    I can only imagine how the head of the BBC Trust must have looked watching that, grinning like Gordon Brown having his prostate examined.

    The situation in Palestine seems to be, in essence, apartheid. I grew up with the anti apartheid thing being a huge focus of debate. It really seemed to matter to everybody that other human beings were being treated in that way. We didn't just talk about it, we did things, I remember boycotts and marches and demos all being held because we couldn't bear that people were being treated like that.

    A few years ago I watched a documentary about life in Palestine. There's a section where a UN dignitary of some kind comes to do a photo opportunity outside a new hospital.

    The staff know that it communicates nothing of the real desperation of their position, so they trick her into a side ward on her way out. She ends up in a room with a child who the doctors explain is in a critical condition because they don't have the supplies to keep treating him.

    She flounders, awkwardly caught in the bleak reality of the room, mouthing platitudes over a dying boy.

    The filmmaker asks one of the doctors what they think the stunt will have achieved.

    He is suddenly angry, perhaps having just felt at first hand something he knew in the abstract. The indifference of the world.

    "She will do nothing," he says to the filmmaker. Then he looks into the camera and says: "Neither will you".

    I cried at that and promised myself that I would do something. Other than write a few stupid jokes I have not done anything. Neither have you.

  49. When someone looks out at the world and sees all manner of suffering and injustice, stretching back for thousands of years and continuing today, he invariably blames such problems on someone else's hatred, greed, or stupidity. Rarely will someone consider the possibility that his own belief system is the cause of the pain and suffering he sees around him.

    But in most cases, it is.

    The root cause of most of society's ills--the main source of man's inhumanity to man--is neither malice nor negligence, but a mere superstition--an unquestioned assumption which has been accepted on faith by nearly everyone, of all ages, races, religions, education and income levels. If people were to recognize that one belief for what it is--an utterly irrational, self-contradictory, and horribly destructive myth--most of the violence, oppression and injustice in the world would cease. But that will happen only when people dare to honestly and objectively re-examine their belief systems.

    "The Most Dangerous Superstition" exposes the myth for what it is, showing how nearly everyone, as a result of one particular unquestioned assumption, is directly contributing to violence and oppression without even realizing it. If you imagine yourself to be a compassionate, peace-loving, civilized human being, you must read this book.
