    That is a bit anti Semitic. Hey Mike, where in the middle east can you vote, be represented regardless of faith or color? Stop trying to cover the failure Kerry’s backside.

    if one side wants to drive the other side into the sea and the other side does not want to go, this is going to happen. in the middle east, both sides want to drive the other side into the sea, which is already polluted enough. tough for all of them, and all of us, too… i blame roosevelt, stalin and churchill, and their successors, and never forget hitler’s part.

    Israel is a great country that could kill its enemy anytime it wants… but it doesn’t want to.

    The Arabs in Israel would kill their enemy tomorrow if they could.

    Show me the quotes of love and peace from the Arab leadership.

    Benjamin Netanyahu

    “If Palestine were to lay down their guns tomorrow, there would be no war. If Israel were to lay down theirs, there would be no Israel”

    Golda Meir on Peace

    “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.” (Statement to the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., 1957)

    “When peace comes we will perhaps in time be able to forgive the Arabs for killing our sons, but it will be harder for us to forgive them for having forced us to kill their sons.” (Statement at a Press Conference in London, 1969)

    “I am convinced that peace will come to Israel and its neighbors because the tens of millions of Arabs need peace just as much as we do. An Arab mother who loses a son in battle weeps as bitterly as any Israeli mother.”

    “Of course, we all must realize that the path to peace may be a little bit difficult, but not as difficult as the path to war.” (Remarks made upon Anwar Sadat’s first visit to Jerusalem, 1977)

    “The only alternative to war is peace. The only road to peace is negotiation.” (Remarks made during peace negotiations with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, 1977)

    It’s not anti-Semitic to disagree with the policy of the government of Israel. It’s not anti-Palestinian to disagree with the policy of Hamas.

    Are you just a Jew hater or do you just follow the leader on this… Israel was unanimously recognized by the U.N. 66 ears ago.
    One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter, that we all know.
    To say the Arabs that have lived there 100 of years in peace is just nonsense. It was part of the Ottoman empire just before the Israelis began to migrate home.
    That 3,000 year old mythology book said that they would be displaced from Israel and some day come back. AND THEY DID!

    Israel was a wasteland and now is a garden that produces some of the greatest human accomplishments ever recorded.

    You lie when you say that they would do the same to the arabs if they could. There have been arabs in every level of govt. in Israel since its inception. Yet a Jew has no place in the “palestinian” controlled areas.

    They are racists that sided with the Nazis. They teach their children to die full of hatred in a glorious cause…

    What the hell is wrong with this picture? Under any other circumstance it is obvious who is right…. Until you realize, it’s all about hating Jews.

    Apartheid : word meaning “the state of being apart”, literally.
    Where in the middle east are people apart? In Israel, yes the “jew” is “in charge” because they are in the majority in Israel. But those who are of Israel have a say no matter what faith. Therefore accusations by Kerry and those apologist do not have a moral or legitimate leg to stand on. Further more such statements are so backward and apply to those who wish the end of Israel as a Nation as to be Anti Semitic.
    You want to find “the state of being apart” ? How about the Christians in every State in the Middle East except Israel! How about the treatment of women in the middle east everywhere except Israel!

    Antisemitism (also spelled anti-semitism or anti-Semitism) is prejudice, hatred of, or discrimination against Jews as a national, ethnic, religious or racial group.1 A person who holds such positions is called an “antisemite”. As Jews are an ethnoreligious group, antisemitism is generally considered a form of racism.
    While the term’s etymology might suggest that antisemitism is directed against all Semitic people, the term was coined in the late 19th century in Germany as a more scientific-sounding term for Judenhass (“Jew-hatred”),2 and that has been its normal use since then.3 For the purposes of a 2005 U.S. governmental report, antisemitism was considered “hatred toward Jews—individually and as a group—that can be attributed to the Jewish religion and/or ethnicity.”4
    Antisemitism may be manifested in many ways, ranging from expressions of hatred of or discrimination against individual Jews to organized violent attacks by mobs, state police, or even military attacks on entire Jewish communities.

    It is regrettable that Kerry has not met recently with Simon Deng, the human rights activist who was raised as a Christian and who at the age of nine became a domestic slave for a number of years in southern Sudan. Deng defied the anti-Israeli bigots at the third United Nations Durban Conference that was held in New York in September 2011. He praised Israel as a state of people who are the colors of the rainbow. By contrast, he held that Africans are the “victims of Arab/Islamic apartheid.” The Arab response to events in Darfur was genocide, and “nobody at the U.N. tells the truth about Darfur.”

    The dirty little secret is out. It is the Arab countries, not Israel, that have to be considered apartheid states. They are guilty of flouting the clear provisions of the Rome Treaty. Among other things, their policies and practices include depriving or limiting people of civil, religious, and political rights; practicing discrimination; infringing on freedom and dignity of people; subjecting them to arbitrary arrest and illegal imprisonment; and preventing groups from participating in the political, social, economic, and cultural life of their countries.

    Netanyahu had his turn at the peace table when he was PM. Talks stalled because he refused to stop the forced evictions in the West Bank to make room for new Israeli settlements.

    Netanyahu is a patriot. It is like being surprised if Patton had become a politician. In his case, he is one who has lived his country’s history. I believe he as honest and truthful. He makes no excuse for defending his people and doing what he sees as smart and good. I do not believe he in any way hates non-Jews. I say it again, I have heard him speak hundreds of times and I have never felt or heard anything hateful towards non Jews.

    You simply cannot blame a man for doing what he feels is right in his heart. He KNOWS that there are entire countries that want his country GONE.

    An accurate ’toon. BTW: Arab and Jew are both Semites, so if “anti-Semite”, you have to hate them both, actually.

    You could not be more wrong. I am pure American. A veteran. A fallen Catholic.
    You can continue to support the Nazi loving, gay-hating, women-abusing, child-exploiting cause of a people that, if you take DNA tests, will find are from other lands.

    The arabs profess to be people of the book. Well the book says that Israel belongs to the Jews. You may be non-secular (as I am politically) but your allies are not. They want to enforce their religion on all people living in their territories, but the Jews let all kinds into every level of govt.

    You are wrong. You are backing the wrong people. I don’t care how much fake outrage you portray. Almost every arab country is run by the sword. Wake up.

    To admire a military patriot of another country is not wrong. I don’t think he lies. And I will always stand with Israel. The only country that defends human rights and democracy in that entire region.

    As I said. The U.N., the entire world agreed on Israel being a country.

    The South Africans created the word Apartheid, which means that everyone in South African who was not ethnically 100% European was kept apart from the voting process.

    So the word ‘Apartheid’ cannot be applied to Israel: they allow a tiny minority of Palestinians to vote in Israeli elections (while most Palestinians only have Bantustan votes, votes like the votes for student body president, votes that confer no real authority to the winner of the poll) but allowing even ONE Palestinian to vote in Israeli elections that have real consequences means that Israel is NOT an Apartheid state.

    I had posted most of the below post 2 days ago on Clay Jones on the 1st of May

    “Remembering the Nakba: Israeli group puts 1948 Palestine back on the map”

    " ‘Zochrot’ aims to educate Israeli Jews – through tours and a new phone app – about a history obscured by enmity and denial"

    Many years ago I met a few Israelis in Israel that made me think things would eventually work out. They had reminded me of some folks from back home. At times I’ve been optimistic, then pessimistic as the 2nd Intifada started. ‘Zochrot’, like ‘Breaking the Silence’ brings out the optimist in me.

    Until both sides recognise what was done to the other, there won’t be peace.

    From a link contained within Zochrot’s website, it reprinted an article that had been printed on a South African website: – JWTC – Johannesburg Workshop in Theory & Criticism.

    “Apartheid: A Double-Crossing” – Louise Bethlehem.

    “Israel/Palestine: Apartheid of a special type?” – Ran Greenstein.

    @ Shadow FX & @ Joadtom The above websites, “Breaking The Silence” and “Zochrot” are Israeli run organisations. I doubt you can accuse them of being anti-Semitic.
