The Israeli Trumpess

29/10/16, Gush Shalom גוש שלום http://zope.gush-shalom.org (Israel)


WHAT WILL Donald Trump do if he loses the elections in a week and a half from now, as most polls indicate?

He has already declared that he will recognize the results -- but only if he wins.
That sounds like a joke. But it is far from being a joke.

Trump has already announced that the election is rigged. The dead are voting (and all the dead vote for Hillary Clinton). The polling station committees are corrupt. The polling machines forge the results.

No, that is not a joke. Not at all.

THIS IS not a joke, because Trump represents tens of millions of Americans, who belong to the lower strata of the white population, which the white elite used to call "white trash". In more polite

Estamos en 2016. Digamos adiós al sionismo de una vez por todas

Actualmente el sionismo es la valla que rodea al pueblo judío, otorgándole supremacía sobre las demás personas de esta tierra

El Estado de Israel es un estado sionista. Todos nosotros, los graduados del sistema educativo israelí lo sabemos. El primer ministro del primer gobierno de Israel lo dijo, Ehud Barak lo dijo, incluso el primer ministro Benjamin Netanyahu lo ha dicho. Esta declaración se puede encontrar en nuestros planes de estudios e incluso en el plan de estudios del ejército de Israel. Todo está bien, pero en ninguna parte he sido capaz de encontrar una definición formal

25 October 2016, Alternative Information Center http://www.alternativenews.org (Israel)

Written by Alternative Information Center (AIC)

A delegation from Brazil’s Landless Workers Movement joins the harvest to help Palestinian farmers pick olives and resist Israeli violence.

The Landless Rural Workers Movement, or Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra (MST), sent its yearly delegation to Palestine for the olive harvest in solidarity with farmers in the West Bank.

MST is a mass social movement in Brazil formed by rural workers and those who want to fight for land reform and against injustice in

B'Tselem's response to Prime Minister's attack

17/10/2016, B'Tselem בצלם http://www.btselem.org (Israel)

In solidarity with the B'Tselem Human Rights organization, targeted in a vicious campaign by the Prime Minister as by Netanyahu's satellites in the media and political system. we publish here verbatim the press release issued by B'Tselem Spokesperson Amit Gilutz.

B'Tselem's response to Prime Minister's attack: We will continue saying the truth in Israel and abroad; the occupation must end.

Unlike the Prime Minister and his slander, we believe that the Israeli public is worthy of meaningful discussion of the occupation. And, contrary to the complete overlap the Prime Minister establishes between the occupation and Israel, we insist on saying loud and clear: the occupation is not Israel, and resisting it is not anti-Israel.

The opposite is true. At the U.N. Security Council on

I love Miri Regev

October 2, 2016, +972 http://972mag.com (Israel)

By Alon Mizrahi*

I have never met Miri Regev, but it feels like I have known her my entire life. I grew up, like her, in a place where we were constantly reminded that some people are worth less than others.

I don’t know Culture Minister Miri Regev. I have never met her. But I have been surrounded by women and girls like her my entire life. And I think I know exactly what she thinks and how she feels.

Like myself, millions of others don’t know Miri Regev in the slightest, and yet just the mere mention of her name brings up strong feelings, for better or for worse. And this is because Miri Regev fits perfectly into the Israeli category that is not political by nature: if this is a script — and it is a script, lest you have any doubts — Miri Regev is the Moroccan girl from the periphery to whom rich, condescending, Ashkenazim do not take kindly. The girl who, as she stands

Chomsky y Shapiro alaban papel de BDS en solidaridad con Palestina



16 agosto 2016, BioBioChile http://www.biobiochile.cl (Chile)
 
El anuncio de Israel, a fines del mes pasado, de construir de nuevos asentamientos en Cisjordania y ampliar otros en Jerusalem, generó condenas en Europa y Estados Unidos, pero estas parecieron generar tanto efecto, como las sucesivas resoluciones de Naciones Unidas que exigen el término de la ocupación.

Por Roberto Manríquez*

Mayor debate provocó la desaparición de Cisjordania y Gaza en el Google Maps, un error que fue reconocido por la compañía, que admitió que borró ambas denominaciones, aunque por razones que no explicitó. Sin embargo, como parte de su defensa Google afirmó con sencillez que “las quejas no tienen fundamento (puesto que) nunca hubo una etiqueta de Palestina en Google Maps”.

Sobre el papel crucial de Estados Unidos en el destino de Palestina, planteamos vía correo electrónico consultas a dos prominentes defensores de los derechos humanos de los palestinos, al reconocido intelectual Noam Chomsky (Boston) y al documentalista Adam Shapiro (Nueva York), ambos ciudadanos

Israel's liberal paper whitewashes the disappearance of Yemenite children



August 13, 2016, +972 Magazine http://972mag.com (Israel)


In the 1950s thousands of babies, children of mostly Yemenite immigrants to lsrael, were allegedly taken away from their parents and given up for adoption to Ashkenazi families. Now an investigative report by Haaretz reveals dozens of Ashkenazi children also disappeared, arguing that the crime was not racially motivated.

On Friday morning, Haaretz readers woke up to find that the newspaper had decided to dedicate its lead story to a piece titled “Dozens of Ashkenazi Babies Mysteriously Disappeared During Israel’s Early Years.” The article, written by Ofer Aderet, was labeled as an exclusive investigatory piece that tells the story of Ashkenazi families whose children disappeared during

¿Cuánta tierra palestina se comen realmente los asentamientos israelíes?



12 agosto 2016, Rebelión http://www.rebelion.org (Mexico)

Monitor de Oriente

Independientemente de su tamaño relativo, o incluso su destino en un futuro acuerdo de paz, los asentamientos de Israel en Cisjordania, en la actualidad, constituyen una grave y sistemática violación del derecho internacional y los derechos humanos. Son parte fundamental de un sistema de apartheid.

El gobierno israelí y sus partidarios rutinariamente minimizan la importancia de los asentamientos en Cisjordania como obstáculo para la paz con los palestinos. Un ejemplo reciente de esto vino de un portavoz de la Agencia Judía, que tuiteó: “Las comunidades judías en Cisjordania ocupan menos del 2% de la tierra; es decir, más del 98% de Cisjordania no contiene residentes judíos en absoluto”.

¿Es esto cierto? ¿Exactamente qué parte del territorio palestino ocupado (TPO) ocupan los asentamientos de Israel?

1. Lo que omite la cifra del 2%.
Los que citan la cifra del 2% rara vez aclaran que esto se refiere únicamente a la zona urbanizada de

Israeli Deputy Defense Minister on Tisha B’Av: “We’re not Ashamed. We Will Rebuild the Temple on the Temple Mount



August 14, 2016, Tikun Olam-תיקון עולם http://www.richardsilverstein.com (USA)


Today was Tisha B’Av, one of the most solemn days of the year for observant Jews.  It marks the destruction of the Second Temple by the Romans in 70 CE.  It is the day on which the Book of Lamentations, which commemorates the fall of Jerusalem, is recited in every synagogue in the world.

But in Israel, the firebrands of Israel’s most right-wing government ever aren’t in mourning.

They’re rejoicing at the prospect of rebuilding the Temple.  They have High Priests in training who are learning the ancient sacrificial rites at the Ateret Cohanim yeshiva in occupied East Jerusalem.  The Temple Institute, which is

The Future belongs to the Optimists



13/08/2016, Gush Shalom גוש שלום http://zope.gush-shalom.org (Israel)



IF I were a cartoonist, I would draw Israel as a length of hose pipe.

At one end, Jews are flowing in, encouraged by anti-Semites and a large Zionist apparatus.

At the other end, young disappointed Israelis are flowing out and settling in Berlin and other places.

By the way, the numbers entering and leaving seem to be about equal.

FOR SOME weeks now, I have felt like a boy who has thrown a stone into a pool. Rings of water created by the splash get larger and larger and expand more and more.

All I did was write a short article in Haaretz, calling upon Israeli emigrants in Berlin and other places to come home and take part in the struggle to save Israel from itself.

I readily conceded that
