J Street is an alt-left group that wants Israel to return to the 1948 borders, leaving the country nine miles wide at its narrowest. It approves of removing all Jews from the West Bank, just as all Jews were removed from Gaza, and ignores the fact that there are some two million Arab full citizens in Israel.
And J Street believes that the United States should intervene to force this solution on the government of Israel.
Why would any organization approve of eliminating the entire Jewish population of a contested zone, leaving an Arab country that is “Jew-free”, just like Gaza, Lebanon, Iran, Saudi Arabia, etc. Simply said, J Street believes it’s okay for Jews to be excluded totally from Arab nations, but Arabs must have full rights (they do) in Israel.

Don’t believe every headline, but there may be truth to the one on this blog.
The reason? There’s many a happy smile in places like Iran, now that one of our Presidential candidates has joined Noam Chomsky’s cult – the one that uses propaganda to express hate, not just signs in Arabic like “Death to Israel” on long-range missiles.
Chomsky, who has publicly endorsed his friend Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination, has strong views about just which group of Americans (Jews) should be named as the chief target of an aggressive campaign of class warfare against “the rich and privileged”, whom Sanders is daily berating.

French and Arab plan ends Israel as a nation, and doesn’t even invite the Jews to the execution plans
Do French leaders know what the Arab public watches on Palestinian television?
The history of France and the Nazi empire, especially the Vichy government, some of whose senior officials were tried for crimes against humanity, will reach another hate plateau with a May 30 meeting of Arabs and Europeans that will push for an end to Israel.
The Vichy strain in France continues to this day, even denying the French participation in the deportation of Jews for extermination ( link shows timeline of crimes) in Nazi concentration camps, abuses of prisoners, and severe acts against members of the Resistance. Few of the perpetrators were ever punished.
The French have scheduled this Arab-led Israel conference before the U.S. November elections. Do they believe the current administration and its preening Secretary of State are more amenable to their Arab-centric efforts than a new face in the White House? The answer may be yes, as our President strains for a legacy of mostly appeasing the enemies of peace at the expense of America’s friends.
“There is no other solution to the conflict other than a two-state solution, Israelis and Palestinians living side by side in peace and security with Jerusalem a shared capital,” Jean-Marc Ayrault said in a joint statement to four of his favorite newspapers – Liberation, the Wall Street Journal, Al-Quds al-Arabi and Haaretz .
The French final soluition for the conflict will be based on the official 2002 Arab League proposal, he said. That proposal urged:
“1. Requests Israel to reconsider its policies and declare that a just peace is its strategic option as well.
“2. Further calls upon Israel to affirm:
I- Full Israeli withdrawal from all the territories occupied since 1967, including the Syrian Golan Heights, to the June 4, 1967 lines as well as the remaining occupied Lebanese territories in the south of Lebanon.
II- Achievement of a just solution to the Palestinian refugee problem to be agreed upon in accordance with U.N. General Assembly Resolution 194.
III- The acceptance of the establishment of a sovereign independent Palestinian state on the Palestinian territories occupied since June 4, 1967 in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
“3. Consequently, the Arab countries affirm the following:
I- Consider the Arab-Israeli conflict ended, and enter into a peace agreement with Israel, and provide security for all the states of the region.
II- Establish normal relations with Israel in the context of this comprehensive peace.
In short, Israel will be shrunk to a tiny land mass and forced to allow millions of Arabs to take over the government with right of return and their votes. In exchange Israel will get a piece of paper saying the “conflict is ended.”
The U.N. Resolution 194 referenced in the Arab League plan said:
Resolves that the refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible; Instructs the Conciliation Commission to facilitate the repatriation, resettlement and economic and social rehabilitation of the refugees and the payment of compensation, and to maintain close relations with the Director of the United Nations Relief for Palestine Refugees and, through him, with the appropriate organs and agencies of the United Nations;
The United States, France and the United Kingdom voted for this plan, which would allow millions of people, who were told to leave Israel by the Arab governments, to demand money or citizenship, including even the descendants of the soldiers who invaded the country in 1948.
Today’s French advocates of 194 do not mention that a number of countries voted against the resolution: Afghanistan, Byelorrusian SSR, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Ukrainian SSR, USSR, Yemen, Yugoslavia. They wanted the destruction of Israel, not peace.
The May conference will include the Middle East Quartet (the United States, Russia, European Union and United Nations), the Arab League, the U.N. Security Council and some 20 other countries. The Palestinian Authority has already endorsed the conference, realizing that the Arab League promoting an Arab League initiative has to be good news for them and very bad news for an Israel to be pushed back to a 13-mile width in an age of ICBMs.
This Facebook page (open link) and website was still online today, despite protests to the social site’s Community Standards officials.
Jewish-Born Mark Zuckerberg owns Facebook. Indeed, he is the richest Jewish-born person in the world. Note that I use the term “Jewish-born.” You might think he would support less hatred of Jews.
According to Shurat HaDin (The Israel Law Center), a non-profit legal organization dedicated to the protection of Israel,
“One of the significant characteristics of the current terror wave is the incitement on the social media networks, headed by Facebook…This incitement consists of the Facebook pages of many young Palestinians who inflame their friends to embark on terrorist attacks, provocative videos glorifying and encouraging terrorist attacks, instructions for terrorists “How to Carry out a Terrorist Attack” – all on Facebook.” Read more here.
Pro-Israel blogger Elder of Ziyon reported on Friday that a complaint he had lodged with Facebook about this Blood libel charge being an example of hate speech, was denied.
What does Facebook consider “hate speech”?
The answer is on the policy pages of Facebook, where Community Standards are explained, and the definition seems very clear to this blogger.
Here’s what Facebook says about its standards for posting on its site:
Facebook removes hate speech, which includes content that directly attacks people based on their:
- National origin,
- Religious affiliation,
- Sexual orientation,
- Sex, gender, or gender identity, or
- Serious disabilities or diseases.
Organizations and people dedicated to promoting hatred against these protected groups are not allowed a presence on Facebook. As with all of our standards, we rely on our community to report this content to us.
People can use Facebook to challenge ideas, institutions, and practices. Such discussion can promote debate and greater understanding. Sometimes people share content containing someone else’s hate speech for the purpose of raising awareness or educating others about that hate speech. When this is the case, we expect people to clearly indicate their purpose, which helps us better understand why they shared that content.
You might look at the picture on the site and the strange writing. It can be translated in small part by visitors, but a full translation of this blood libel attack is not provided.
Iranians, Syrians okay, but American dentist can’t serve country, because his mother lives in Israel
UPDATE: 2/22/2018: The leaders of Russia, Iran and Syria are colluding to eliminate U.S. influence in the Middle East and continue their three dictatorships with all the economic and political inequality absolute authority guarantees. Bush, Obama and Trump have judged other world leaders by American fear of conflict against enemies with stated absolute conviction. These foes will never change their mind without force or fear of it. Forget peace in our time, or you will find our time in pieces.

His Excellency Mohammad Javad Zarif
Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran
Dear Mr. Minister:
Thanks for a constructive meeting yesterday. I wanted to get back to you in response to your inquiry about amendments to our Visa Waiver Program. First, I want to confirm to you that we remain fully committed to the sanctions lifting provided for under the JCPOA. We will adhere to the full measure of our commitments, per the agreement. Our team is working hard to be prepared and as soon as we reach implementation day we will lift appropriate sanctions.
I am also confident that the recent changes in visa requirements passed in Congress, which the Administration has the authority to waive, will not in any way prevent us from meeting our JCPOA commitments, and that we will implement them so as not to interfere with legitimate business interests of Iran. To this end, we have a number of potential tools available to us, including multiple entry ten-year business visas, programs for expediting business visas, and the waiver authority provided under the new legislation. I am happy to discuss this further and provide any additional clarification.

Approved by Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA)
Rejected by Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA)
The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority approved the display of an anti-Israel ad it had previously rejected – top image. The ad below was rejected. One rips Israel. The other states a fact. But Boston has a very anti-Israel climate – colleges, even synagogues routinely favor the “oppressed” Arabs over the terrorized Jews.
The hate-Israel poster, which features a large photograph of a child, accuses Israel’s military of using US tax dollars to kill 2,000 Palestinian children since September 2000, and calls for the end of US military aid to Israel.
It is one of three ads initially approved by the MBTA in June 2014, but later removed. The governing body of the state’s public transportation system then said the ads violated its policy against language that demeans or disparages individuals or groups.
An advocate of supposed Arab victim-hood by Jews, Richard Colbath-Hess (listing on Google as http://www.rcolbathhess.com/ 79 Amory St, Cambridge, MA 02139 (617) 354-6471), a board member of Palestine Advocacy Project and a Jewish-American faculty member at the University of Massachusetts claimed,
American tax dollars help the Israeli government maintain a brutal military occupation, which has denied the Palestinian people their basic rights for decades.
These ads show what Israel’s occupation and apartheid really look like, and it is important for Americans to see that.
The American Civil Liberties Union challenged the initial rejection on behalf of the Palestinian rights organization, Palestine Advocacy Project. The group used to be called Ads Against Apartheid, proclaims that the poster is a form of First Amendment speech and should be allowed in public. (And the pro-Israel poster on top of this page is not?) It does not violate the MBTA policy against demeaning ads, according to Sarah Wunsch, deputy Continue reading →
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.”
The image appeared 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 and s#itting on the prime minister’s head.
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 →
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 →
