Does anyone have a problem with this dissertation?

Published By: Jews For Justice In The Middle East
Berkley 2001....

The standard Zionist position is that they showed up in Palestine in the late 19th century to reclaim their ancestral homeland. Jews bought land and started building up the Jewish community there. They were met with increasingly violent opposition from the Palestinian Arabs, presumably stemming from the Arabsí inherent anti-Semitism. The Zionists were then forced to defend themselves and, in one form or another, this same situation continues up to today.

The problem with this explanation is that it is simply not true, as the documentary evidence in this booklet will show. What really happened was that the Zionist movement, from the beginning, looked forward to a practically complete dispossession of the indigenous Arab population so that Israel could be a wholly Jewish state, or as much as was possible. Land bought by the Jewish National Fund was held in the name of the Jewish people and could never be sold or even leased back to Arabs (a situation which continues to the present).

The Arab community, as it became increasingly aware of the Zionists’ intentions, strenuously opposed further Jewish immigration and land buying because it posed a real and imminent danger to the very existence of Arab society in Palestine. Because of this opposition, the entire Zionist project never could have been realized without the military backing of the British. The vast majority of the population of Palestine, by the way, had been Arabic since the seventh century A.D. (Over 1200 years)

In short, Zionism was based on a faulty, colonialist world view that the rights of the indigenous inhabitants didnít matter. The Arabsí opposition to Zionism wasnít based on anti-Semitism but rather on a totally reasonable fear of the dispossession of their people.

One further point: being Jewish ourselves, the position we present here is critical of Zionism but is in no way anti-Semitic. We do not believe that the Jews acted worse than any other group might have acted in their situation. The Zionists (who were a distinct minority of the Jewish people until after WWII) had an understandable desire to establish a place where Jews could be masters of their own fate, given the bleak history of Jewish oppression. Especially as the danger to European Jewry crystalized in the late 1930ís and after, the actions of the Zionists were propelled by real desperation.

But so were the actions of the Arabs. The mythic ďland without people for a people without landĒ was already home to 700,000 Palestinians in 1919. This is the root of the problem, as we shall see.

R.Trey Gowdy proves heís a real tough guy at IRS hearings..

This smart ass attention getting political goober thinks pushing an IRS Employee (Yes I know Commissioner) is proving
that once again Republicanís will attack anyone or anything that gets in their way of proving a point..

Take a close look at this fucking jerk and see an example of stupidity in action.. Yelling and screaming and yet really making no point.. Offering sarcastic demeaning comments which did not in the slightest support his allegations..

This is our new enemy and I feel he will be an asset to our goal of eliminating right wing corporatist republican hate mongers..
In reality, Mr. Koskinen might actually be a republican and I bet there are thousand of republicans who work in the ira who when watched this segment were sickened by this new breed of hate...

So a jury just hid a thread ( I was on it) concerning Hamas's huge role in

in perpetuating the current violence in Gaza.. 95% of it sounded as though it came directly from a Right Wing Site..
I so much wanted to this poster a ton of shit for his transparency. After I finished my comments, I immediately went to his/her thread and it was gone... Shit! I so much wanted to get at him/her..

I think once in awhile these type of trolling threads should be allowed to continue..
Itís healthy to vent around here once in a while.. Especially at trolls..

ďAn Ineffective and Gutless Presidency"

From Salon. Com
written by Thomas Frank.

Gutless? Ineffective? The two words that Frank thinks will describe Obamaís Legacy?..

Perhaps there are elements of truth in this article.. But i feel that our President has overcome
a shit load of hate based obstruction from Republicans all across our nationís political landscape and he did a hell of a job carefully navigating this almost impossible situation..

Hey Frank... How about now writing a detailed article describing exactly in detail how Republican/teabaggers did everything in their power to bring our country down using the Race Card as its number one" go to ď strategy???...


Question?...How come NewsMax continually pops up all over Liberal Sites?

Rather new to computer and political sites........Are they paying for this intrusion? I swear to God if I see one more of those Bad Obama facial shots followed by a poll concerning his ďhonesty,Ē, Benghazi or overall job performance, Iím gonna take sledgehammer and find out where the fuck their home office is..

Any doubt concerning the Teapublicanís War on Woman?

Funny, how they did not include alcohol even though fetal alcoholic damage is probably even more of a threat than drugs.. At least, on the same level..

Holy Crap!!!
Woman arrested after giving birth...found traces of amphetamines in her blood..
