Hate Israel cartoon displayed by “neutral” nation’s ambassador on huge screen to promote business conference in Tehran
This is not a cartoon from a hate website. It is not from an Arab extremist group. It is not from a White supremacist handbook.
It was just shown by Giulio Haas, the ambassador of Switzerland to Iran, at a conference promoting the terrorist state.
That’s right – Switzerland!
Reuters reported that the cartoon appeared on an enormous screen at the conference, under the headline “Iran: now or never.” The cartoon, Reuters said, was a commentary on “responses to the deal,” and showed a pair of doves with American and Iranian flags on their chests, sitting on the head of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The hateful cartoon was put up on a huge screen during a speech to hundreds of Swiss and Iranian business people at a conference in Zurich on Thursday (August 27), in which he also described Iran as a “pole of stability” in the Middle East.
“Ambassador Haas did not intend to insult anybody with the cartoon,” a Swiss government statement said. “If that is the case, however, he regrets it and seeks the pardon of everyone who could have felt insulted.”

Haas said Thursday that his almost two-year stint in Tehran has made him certain that America will change its view of Iran as an aggressor.
“Iran at the moment is most probably the pole of stability in a very, very unsafe region,” he said. “Iran seems still for a lot of people to be bearded, elderly Continue reading →
BDS supporters often call for a boycott of not just goods and folks from the West Bank, but from all of Israel. The following seems to agree with them:
…Arab League Council declared a formal boycott: “Jewish products and manufactured [goods] in Palestine shall be [considered] undesirable in the Arab countries; to permit them to enter the Arab countries would lead to the realization of the Zionist political objectives. … every State of the League should … take measures which they consider fit and which will be in conformity with the principles of administration and legislation therein, such as making use of import balances in this respect in order to prevent these products and manufactured [goods] from entering [these] countries regardless of whether they have come from Palestine or by any other route.” – Wikipedia
While that might sound like objections to so-called occupation of West Bank and Gaza, it is not a document from 2015 or 2005 or 1995 or 1985 or 1975 or 1965 or 1955. Continue reading →
The BDS movement (advertisement above) is just about Israel and its policies towards the Palestinians, we have been told by some American media pundits and politicians.
RadioIslam.org reminds its readers that “Posters/banners are an excellent weapon in the war against Jewish chauvinism and propaganda. Be a fighter yourself and spread these pics through blogs, sites, mails – whatever channels you can access.”
On the issue of BDS they propose sending out these other BDS messages from their website:
If we dig deeper into radioislam.org (and probably most BDS support groups) we find a darker message, as the site suggests on another page. It is no longer an attack on Israel and its policies. It is not about the so-called settlements, or “occupation” of land conquered in war.
It’s hate of Jews.
White House intervenes in PA conviction for sanctioning brutal murder of 33 Jews, says Arabs can’t afford $30 million a month
The Obama administration has gone to a New York court to insure the finances of the Palestinian Authority stay rock solid, despite conviction by an American court in connection with the murder of 33 Jews and injuries to 450 others.
Obama’s justice department asked a United States judge yesterday (Aug. 10) to “carefully consider” the size of the bond he sets for the Palestinian Authority while it appeals an award for damages in deaths and injuries of Americans in six terror attacks in Israel.
The payment suggested by the plaintiffs was $30 million a month – an amount insignificant in the Arab world economies. For example, the payment would represent one six-millionth of the annual GDP of Qatar, the great supporter of Hamas and other Palestinian causes. Despite the miniscule amount, the Obama team maintains the economic impact would devastate the “Authority” and cause its downfall.
Not mentioned in the White House intervention is that the P.A. is headed to the International Criminal Court to attack Israel for imagined war crimes, and this would set Continue reading →
Greece bailouts are just to keep banks fat and happy, while families suffer from ten consecutive cuts to their livelihoods
Billions for banks. Hardly a farthing for the families of Greece. The country continues to face impending feudalism to pacify a financial monarchy ruling Europe.
Since 2010, Greece has received nearly $277 billion in bailout funds. Almost all of the money has gone to pay the country’s debts, cover credit default swaps, pay jacked up interest rates and bolster the local and international banks’ capital, rather than to provide any economic growth. Meanwhile, seniors have been robbed of pensions, minimum wage rates smashed, Continue reading →
