You’re the reason BDS is winning!

**For the brainwashed, the man makes a plea

June 16, 2015, 11:09 am

So you think BDS is the big threat against Israel?


You just can’t understand why it is the world is so obsessed by a few houses Israel builds while so many other countries do so many other things?

You are trying to counter BDS but all that’s happening is it’s getting stronger and stronger and you know why…anti-Semitism. But you’re wrong. About everything.

Did you ever think during your endless meetings and conferences on anti-Semitism and Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) that the reason BDS keeps getting stronger no matter how hard you work is actually because of the work you’re doing?

it ever occur to you that the reason every country around the world, without exception, thinks settlements are a negative mark on a beautiful country is…because they are?

And, very typically, he frames Israel as the only responsible party and the Palestinians as helpless victims.

3. There exists an indifference to the Palestinians cause and I am being generous and kind by using

that word. The fact of the matter is that Israeli citizens by and large do not support to have
the West Bank vacated..not even close. They're enablers of the occupation as well as the
majority of their supporters. Israel has the political and military power, how likely will they
succeed in attaining a viable state with those odds? Next to zero. So, yes, they are on many
levels helpless victims despite the constant propaganda suggesting otherwise.

Your position is more hardline than theirs & it wouldn't lead to peace (since Israel would never agree to pull back to exact '67 lines & toss out every last settler).

23. Read the OP again, if you like. Israel is in violation of international law and they get away

with the decades long occupation due to their enablers...they have all the power. If they
keep the 3 major settlement blocs which are cut deep within the West Bank, which were
strategically chosen for the arable land and water resources, and they keep all of Jerusalem
and not allow EJ for the Palestinians, then there will be NOTHING but a bantustan.

I completely get that you are fine with that.

If you are so worried about BDS seeking one state, then complain to the president of
Israel..a one stater, If you fear BDS, then tell Israel to get the fuck out of the WB
for starters. There is always money for war, they need to put that money in relocating all
the hundreds of thousands of violators..it may take years, but they can do it. Get that
in writing and ratified at the UNSC.

Supporting anything less is criminal.

BDS is not monolithic by design, shira. But if you feel they are a threat, re-read my earlier
post and tell Israel to give the Palestinians what is rightfully theirs...and there will be
no amount of effort by any BDS group/individual who will then be able to garner support for
boycotting Israel.

You would need to be ignorant of what is necessary to ensure a viable state to agree with you and I know
for a fact they will not be able to have that with Israel keep those blocs. Israel keeps the arable land

My opinion is that they have a right to decide, you don't like my answer, too bad.

If being victims entitles a people to be as racist and fascist as they want, then it should be just as "understandable" if Jews decided to have a Palestinian free state due to being victims of unrelenting terror & threats of ethnic cleansing & genocide since before 1948.

92. You asked me a question regarding AIPAC and control. I said, No, call AIPAC and ask them for

clarification on the US Congress.

That you deny their efforts and do not want to ask them what has been their success
in advocating for Israel is telling enough....more than enough.

Never heard of a lobby that worked so hard to only to be told they should not bother,
they don't need a lobby according to you. Let AIPAC know of your revelation.

You're amusing that way.

You were right all along. The gig is up.

Article Twenty-Two: The Powers which Support the Enemy

The enemies have been scheming for a long time, and they have consolidated their schemes, in order to achieve what they have achieved. They took advantage of key elements in unfolding events, and accumulated a huge and influential material wealth which they put to the service of implementing their dream. This wealth (permitted them to) take over control of the world media such as news agencies, the press, publication houses, broadcasting and the like. (They also used this) wealth to stir revolutions in various parts of the globe in order to fulfill their interests and pick the fruits. They stood behind the French and the Communist Revolutions and behind most of the revolutions we hear about here and there. They also used the money to establish clandestine organizations which are spreading around the world, in order to destroy societies and carry out Zionist interests. Such organizations are: the Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, Lions Clubs, B’nai B’rith and the like. All of them are destructive spying organizations. They also used the money to take over control of the Imperialist states and made them colonize many countries in order to exploit the wealth of those countries and spread their corruption therein. As regards local and world wars, it has come to pass and no one objects, that they stood behind World War I, so as to wipe out the Islamic Caliphate. They collected material gains and took control of many sources of wealth. They obtained the Balfour Declaration and established the League of Nations in order to rule the world by means of that organization. They also stood behind World War II, where they collected immense benefits from trading with war materials and prepared for the establishment of their state. They inspired the establishment of the United Nations and the Security Council to replace the League of Nations, in order to rule the world by their intermediary. There was no war that broke out anywhere without their fingerprints on it: “

Any Jewish Palestinian as you call them are actually Israelis...Jews; living in illegal colonies under the protection of the IDF on stolen land.

4. IOW, this article is saying that Jews are the reason for antisemitism.

 

BDS is pure antisemitism.

It's hardly about settlements. That's not what anti-Zionism is about & this article is naive (at best).

There's a reason BDS demonizes & slanders Israel up, down, and sideways 24-7-365 (the country is racist, apartheid, born in sin, etc.). The reason is to end the the Jewish state that they see as wholly illegitimate. A racist, nazi, colonialist, apartheid & imperialist state founded on ethnic cleansing simply has no right to exist in peace. End of story. Full stop. Period. That's the BDS message & it's to lay the groundwork that will legitimize ending Israel's existence by going to war against the bad Zionists (Jews).

BDS does not believe in a 2 state solution that "legitimizes" the Zionist project (the Jewish state). No one in their right mind would ever claim that BDS supports a Jewish state (the racist illegitimate Zionist project). They want it gone & destroyed, with Jews living as a minority population under Hamas/Fatah/Islamic Jihad rule. That is, if they're not massacred wholesale first.

Obama just recently said those who are against the existence of a Jewish state are bigots (given the need for a Jewish state to protect Jews worldwide). BDS is without any question against the existence of a Jewish state. Anyone claiming otherwise is naive or lying.

Ergo, BDS = Jew hate.

Jews are not responsible for Jew hatred.

24. When did anti-Semitism become synonymous with anti-apartheid,

or anti-illegal settlements, or anti-war crime committers?

When I criticize the ISRAELI GOVERNMENT, and it is capitalized to emphasize the point, I am not criticizing Jews in the generic sense. I am criticizing a government that is practicing apartheid, systematically stealing land in contravention of International Law, and doing its best to eliminate any Palestinian presence in Palestine.

When you claim that the object of the BDS movement is to eliminate the Jewish state you are putting your own spin on a movement and equating any criticism of the actions of the Israeli government with de facto anti-Semitism.


And no, Jews are not responsible for Jew hatred, but Israeli citizens are responsible for the government that they supported with their votes.

Anyone who truly opposes Apartheid being practiced against Palestinians can look to Lebanon in order to find genuine State Apartheid practiced against Palestinians born there.

What is happening in Lebanon is FAR closer to the definition of Apartheid than anything Israel is doing.

Those who accuse Israel of Apartheid always deny Lebanese Apartheid, and they don't give a damn that it's happening. What this shows me is that they really aren't anti-Apartheid at all. They're just Israel haters.

Palestinian refugees, a descriptive word that you forgot in your response, by the way, live in Lebanon because they were driven out of Palestine by a campaign of Jewish, later Israeli terrorism.

I have never stated that Palestinians are treated very well by the surrounding countries that took them in, but I also know that the Palestinian diaspora would not have happened save for the terror that was inflicted on the Palestinians prior to and subsequent to the establishment of the Israeli State.

They're not refugees by any definition. Those born there have the right to be citizens of their country, like anyone else born in any other country on earth.

Israel practices brutal apartheid. There's is no lie in that statement.

I also see that you're also back to the "look every where else first" method of mind control.

So sorry that it's the usual flop along with all your other gimmicks.

Anybody that truly opposes Israeli apartheid will see Israel for the brutal, land sucking, Palestinian killing regime that it is, while the ones that want to play with smoke and mirrors will belch forth everything they can to hide the systematic rape of a people.

Obama: You know, I think a good baseline is: Do you think that Israel has a right to exist as a homeland for the Jewish people, and are you aware of the particular circumstances of Jewish history that might prompt that need and desire? And if your answer is no, if your notion is somehow that that history doesn’t matter, then that’s a problem, in my mind. If, on the other hand, you acknowledge the justness of the Jewish homeland, you acknowledge the active presence of anti-Semitism—that it’s not just something in the past, but it is current—if you acknowledge that there are people and nations that, if convenient, would do the Jewish people harm because of a warped ideology. If you acknowledge those things, then you should be able to align yourself with Israel where its security is at stake, you should be able to align yourself with Israel when it comes to making sure that it is not held to a double standard in international fora, you should align yourself with Israel when it comes to making sure that it is not isolated.

And I know that you’ve talked about this with Jewish organizations, with some of your Jewish friends—how you define the differences and the similarities between these two concepts.

Obama: You know, I think a good baseline is: Do you think that Israel has a right to exist as a homeland for the Jewish people, and are you aware of the particular circumstances of Jewish history that might prompt that need and desire?

49. When Muslims murder Palestinians

 

While the Israeli Defense Force were storming into Gaza the streets of Europe were overrun with demonstrators. There were virtual riots outside of the Israeli embassy in London, tens of thousands of people marched there in support of Palestinians as they did in Paris, Madrid and elsewhere. With every march came cries that the IDF were perpetrating a massacre in Gaza. The pictures of dead Palestinian children filled Facebook feeds.

There is simply a sad, deafening silence.

It’s not as if people don’t know what’s happening in the largest Palestinian refugee camp in Syria, Yarmouk. The story took pride of place on Sky News, it has been published by every major newspaper around the world. Yet there is no action. The heat, the friction, the activism of the Summer is nowhere to be found.

In the United Kingdom there is no shortage of organizations dedicated to the Palestinian cause. The Palestine Solidarity Campaign, was the main organizer of the demonstrations and of a boycott campaign against Israel and yet the cause of Palestinian suffering in Syria is noticeable only for its absence from their website. There are no events planned, there are no calls for aid, there are no plans to lobby Members of Parliament to take action.

There is silence.

There was no massacre of Palestinians at the hands of the IDF last Summer. But in Syria there is. Right now as you read this. But you would be forgiven for being unaware of it. For this time there aren’t tens of thousands demonstrating on the streets. There are no demonstrations at all. There are no rallies. There are no screams of massacre. There are no demands on governments to take action.

And I want to know how this is possible. How can it happen that when Israel defends herself thousands take to the streets, the activists with their megaphones go marching, the whole machinery of campaigning and letter writing and the demands for action from politicians swing into action but when a real massacre of Palestinians happening there is silence from the very organization which exists to campaign on behalf of Palestinians.

This is a bizarre state of affairs indeed. But then perhaps they are only following the example set by Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestine Authority President. His words concerning Palestinians in Syria from 2013 are proving to be truly prophetic today;

It’s better they die in Syria than give up their right of return”
Perhaps the silence regarding Palestinians in Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East comes from a belief that it is only worth demonstrating when a Palestinian is killed by an Israeli. Even if that means throwing around words like massacre when there isn’t one and ignoring a real one while it happens.

We’re constantly told that the Israel Palestine conflict is what radicalises young Muslims in the West. So what happens when those radicalised Muslims from the West start beheading Palestinians while wearing the uniform of the Islamic State?

Apparently nothing at all.

68. still attempting to foist that BS about Abbas off on folks? Broke out the bold for that even

THe quote when traced back turns out to be what someone said someone said Abbas supposedly said when speaking to Egyptian reports, nothing first no actually proof just a convient cover story for Israel demanding Palestinian refugees from Syria sign away their futre freedom of movement in order to be sheltered in the West Bank

Now, first of all, anyone reading the press knows two things: 1) Abbas approached the UN weeks ago asking for its help on the issue; 2) UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon has asked surrounding countries for assistance, including Israel. So, the word “offer” in the headline is also misleading, since it is not Israel that initiated an offer, but if anything, is now “agreeing” to a request already made – and with conditions.

But actually, the journalism of the TOI isn’t the story. The story is this: Humane Israel, the same Israel that boasts about how it sends field hospitals to quake disasters before everybody else, now sets conditions (and right on their own border, not thousands of miles away!) for refugees in physical danger of their lives.

The first thing that popped to my mind was how it sounded like a “deal with the devil.” “Sure, we’ll let you in, save your lives – but first, sign here on the dotted line…”

The comparison to that ‘deal with the devil,” who eventually gets the victim’s “soul,” could not be more appropriate considering that the right of return is one of the most cherished, valued principles a Palestinian refugee holds dear to their hearts. Even Abbas, who although said to Channel 2 that he “has no right to live in Safed,” could never agree to imposing such a ridiculous condition on other Palestinians.

If Israel wants to show any kind of humanity, it should let those people through without holding a virtual gun to their heads. God knows they’ve suffered enough already.

....is that Abbas made the right decision to let Palestinians remain in Syria.

Correct?

113. Sure you do, but you believe Abbas was right to let them stay in Syria

 

Israel did nothing wrong. There is no such thing as a right-of-return for descendants of refugees who should be citizens in their host countries (like everyone else there).

116. Israel didn't force them to stay. All they had to do was sign a piece of paper....

 

Abbas wouldn't allow them to choose for themselves.

I thought you were all for Palestinians choosing for themselves whether they want RoR.

Change your mind?

the entire stunt was a PR move by Israel there was never any intention of allowing a single refugee into the West Bank

119. I agree with the OP.

It's the settlements that's the problem, and whatever some people claim, BDS is only about the settlements. This is a battle Israel can't win. The settlements are deeply immoral, and as long as they exist, there is a reason for BDS.

He was referring to the Greater Israel messianic madmen who's very foundation has always been one state .

I'll help you save some time.

You won't find such a person as they don't exist.

They're all advocates for an end (destruction) of the Jewish state, and we all know damned well what that means for Jews not only in Israel but worldwide.

Wake up.

122. Great post Jefferson23.....

He is not Left wing BTW .....but he nails it never the less ........

Did it ever occur to you that every op-ed you write justifying the annexation of land and the movement of civilians into it serves to galvanise people into the BDS movement to fight the very mindset you advocate?

Did it ever occur to you for a second that the Palestinians you read about in the papers perpetrating terror attacks aren’t representative by any means of the whole?

Do you really wonder why it is that Palestinians hate Israelis when they spend their entire lives living under our occupation, subject to our military law? How would you feel if you lived in perpetual fear of that knock on the door? Do you really think Palestinians are going to love Israel while living under our regime? Is that your standard for whether the occupation should stop? Are you mad?


Again and again so-called Israel advocates make the mistake of thinking they should be defending settlements for the good of the country when for the good of the country they need to be asking why it is the government insists on building them.

Last week Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barakat begged Washington DC to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. But they won’t. Nobody will. As long as all any country sees is Israeli belligerence they won’t grant any recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Surely you know this is true.

This little piece of dirt that Israelis are now tied to because every rock has significance from thousands of years ago will ensure the end of the Jewish national project.

This little piece of dirt the Jordanians fled from is, for some reason, considered vital for Israel’s security needs. This piece of dirt that the IDF took in a day has hills. 2,000 years ago that might have been important, of course now with helicopters and an awesome air force the definition of “high ground” is rather different.

But we’re not being led by the Godfathers of Israel any more. We’re led by pygmies. Products of Zionism gone mad. People who look at the West Bank but don’t see Palestinians in it, they see obstacles. Increasingly when they look at the state of Israel they don’t see loyal citizens in it, they see traitors. That is why Breaking the Silence, a non governmental organisation with all of 60 members would seem to be such a threat that it requires a change to the law.

That is why a movement whose biggest successes are convincing a couple of musicians to cancel performances in Israel and a few companies to leave the country now takes centre stage as enemy number one.

Every time an Israeli diplomat talks about settlements and defends Israel’s right to build them their membership swells, every time another Jewish leader calls BDS anti-Semitism they enjoy phone calls from newspapers asking them for op-eds countering the claims.

The truth is simple and one you will continue to ignore, to the detriment of the country you claim to love so much.


People join BDS because they don’t like seeing the racism the occupation breeds, they join BDS because they hate the stink of lies coming from a government who argues on the one hand the Palestinians pose a huge threat and on the other that the only way to counter them is to move women and children into their land and build schools and infrastructure next to their population centres.

So if you support settlement at least tell the truth. Say you support it because your Zionism dictates that anywhere a Jew once lived a Jew must live now. Don’t pretend building houses is in some way necessary for Israel’s future and don’t pretend that the greatest threat to Israel is BDS or Breaking the Silence. Not only does that make you nothing more than the object of ridicule it makes the very enemy you’re attempting to fight go from strength to strength.

The real enemy to Israel isn’t the BDS movement. It’s you.

Define left wing? How about a Meretz supporter/voter? Is that a reasonable baseline definition?

When did I try to prove he wasn't left wing? Again, I think you may be mixing me up with some other poster.

I definitely take and digest his message. He raises good points.

He says that he is.

Here is a quote from another of his Times of Israel blog posts:

I look forward to to an Israeli leadership willing to roll up its sleeves and grapple with the issues that have seen poverty rise, racism exacerbated, occupation further entrenched and international isolation.
