Lt.-Gen. Shaul Mofaz presented the government [in July 2001] with an
updated plan for an all-out attack on the Palestinian Authority. The
London-based Foreign Report reported that the plan calls for an
invasion of Palestinian-controlled territory by some 30,000 Israeli
soldiers, with the clearly defined mission of destroying the
infrastructure of the Palestinian leadership and collecting weaponry
currently possessed by the various Palestinian forces, and expelling or
killing its military leadership. As reported in the Foreign Report and
disclosed locally by Maariv, Israel's invasion plan — reportedly dubbed
Operation Justified Vengeance
for example, the use of F-16 fighter planes to bomb buildings in the
center of Palestinian cities "has become routine."

Burning Conscience: Israeli
Soldiers Speak Out
searing interview with Avichai Sharon and Noam Chayut, both veterans of
the Israeli Defense Forces and members of Breaking the Silence. Sharon
and Chayut served during the second intifada, an on-going
bloodbath that has claimed the lives of over three thousand
Palestinians and nine-hundred-fifty Israelis. After thorough
introspection, these young men have chosen to speak out about their
experiences as self-described "brutal occupiers of a disputed
land." Producer: Sat Gwin
"Nobody Should Preach to Us
And then there was this,
as described by Hass: "There are two toilets on every floor,
but the soldiers urinated and
defecated everywhere else in the building, in several rooms of
which they had lived for about a month. They did their business on the
floors, in emptied flowerpots, even
in drawers they had pulled out of desks. They defecated into
plastic bags, and these were scattered in several places. Some of them
had burst. Someone even managed to defecate into a photocopier. The
soldiers urinated into empty mineral water bottles. These were
scattered by the dozen in all the rooms of the building, in cardboard
boxes, among the piles of rubbish and rubble, on desks, under desks,
next to the furniture the soldiers had smashed, among the children's
books that had been thrown down. Some of the bottles had opened and the
yellow liquid had spilled and left its stain.
"It was especially
difficult to enter two floors of the building because of the pungent stench of feces and urine.
Soiled toilet paper was also scattered everywhere. In some of the
rooms, not far from the heaps
of feces and the toilet paper, remains of rotting food were
scattered. In one corner, in the room in which someone had defecated
into a drawer, full cartons of fruits and vegetables had been left
behind. The toilets were left overflowing with bottles filled with
urine, feces and toilet paper. Relative to other places, the soldiers
did not leave behind them many sayings scrawled on the walls. Here and
there were the candelabrum symbols
of Israel, stars of David, praises for the Jerusalem Betar soccer team."
This is not a tale we are ever
likely to see in the American press, so the vast majority of Americans
who think with Menachem Begin that nobody can preach to Israel about
ethics, that Israel's army is the only moral army in the world and
always employs the doctrine of "purity of arms," will go on thinking
But I cannot.
I am forced to ask some
questions that that American majority will no doubt never hear:
Can it, for instance, be called terrorism if an entire unit of
the Israeli army forsakes purity of arms and spends a month crapping
on floors, on piles of children's artwork, in desk drawers, on

rights worker viciously attacked by Jewish extremists in Hebron
22 November 2006
By Richard Kastelein
Palsolidarity.org , November
Publisher's Note: Just imagine if 100 Palestinians chanting anti-Christian
slogans had smashed the face of a 19-year-old Swedish girl with a
bottle in breaking her cheek bone! Don't you think it would make
headlines in much the US and mainstream media??
Israeli citizens did just that and not a single American mainstream
news outlet has covered this incident.
(For that matter, what if Hamas deliberately
ran over a young American woman with a bulldozer, or a car? When
Israelis do that, it's not only perfectly OK, it's a JOKE! Ha
ha. It's comedy to laugh about, the stupid woman!
R.I.P. Rachel Corrie. And those are white
women. Imagine what these radicals get away with when
injuring olive-skinned women.)
A 19-year old Swedish human rights worker had her
cheekbone broken by a Jewish extremist in Hebron on November 18th while
walking through the Tel Rumeida checkpoint with a small group of human
rights workers (HRWs) to accompany Palestinian schoolchildren to their
Tove Johansson from
Stockholm and the rest of the group were confronted by about 100 Jewish
extremists in small groups. They started chanting in Hebrew:
Jesus, we'll kill you too!"
— a refrain the
settlers had been repeating to internationals
in Tel Rumeida all day .
Earlier the same day at
least five Palestinians, including a 3-year-old child, were injured by
the settler-supporting extremists, who rampaged through Tel Rumeida
hurling stones and bottles at local residents. Palestinian
schoolchildren on their way home were also attacked. The Israeli army,
which was intensively deployed in the area, did not intervene to stop
thirty seconds of waiting, a small group of very aggressive male Jewish
extremists surrounded the international volunteers and began spitting
at them, so much so that the internationals described it as "like
rain." Then men from the back of the crowd began jumping up and
spitting, while others from the back and side of the crowd kicked the
this "we killed Jesus" sneer is not the sentiment of ALL Jews, lets not
get extremist in the opposite direction either and saying "we must
finish what Hitler started", though some of the Israeli settlers also
said when Baruch Goldstein massacred Arabs in prayer "it's a good
start". We all need to condemn and denounce all this

When President Bush Sr.
delayed a $10 bn "loan" to Israel, they accused Bush of being
anti-Semitic -- which is ridiculous, but Bush probably is at
least to an extent, outside of his foreign policy preferences,
basing that on his father Prescott. Prescott was allegedly
liberal, but he probably hated Jews as much as the next guy, or he
would not have been able to mentally justify "running" Auschwitz for
his coal investments. But it's still idiotic to claim that Bush
delayed a $10 loan because of his hatred for Jews. It made
Israelis look like idiots.

How to Live
Dr. Ran HaCohen was born in the
Netherlands in 1964 and grew up in Israel. He has a B.A. in Computer
Science, an M.A. in Comparative Literature, and his PhD is in Jewish
Studies. He is a university teacher in Israel. He also works as a
literary translator (from German, English and Dutch), and as a literary
critic for the Israeli daily Yedioth Achronoth. Mr. HaCohen's work has
been published widely in Israel. "Letter from Israel" appears
occasionally at Antiwar.com. This article, which first appeared on
Antiwar.com on 26 February 2007, is republished with the author's
About Israeli Jews who are concerned with
hunger in the world, many miles away. Yet they are totally
unconcerned or even arrogantly dismissive about extreme hunger -- food
insecurity -- caused by Israel a few miles
It's interesting to
observe, however, how Israelis nowadays cope with what used to be such
a popular excuse. Having claimed the occupation ameliorated Palestinian
life, Israelis now have to face hunger and starvation at their
doorstep. How do they live with it?
Cannot Be Overlooked ...
Dov Weissglas, the
comatose Ariel Sharon’s onetime political advisor, compares this systematic program of gradual starvation
to “an appointment with a dietician,”
All of this is disgustingly similar to the Nazi program of forced starvation of the
Warsaw Ghetto Jews. In addition, the construction of Israel’s
apartheid wall reminds one of the Nazi construction of a wall around
the Warsaw Ghetto.
It appears 40 million Christian
Zionists in America are in favor of a genocidal policy against a
few million Palestinians and Hagee’s Christian Zionist “AIPAC” will
“lobby” Congress to make sure every
last Palestinian is either ethnically cleansed or systematically
starved to death.

what the Israeli settlers are really
Saturday, after the demonstration in Bil'in, two of us boarded a bus
bound for Hebron, a town of 130.000 Palestinians, 600 lunatic settlers,
and 10,000 soldiers and police to 'guard' the settlers. Arriving at
noon on Saturday, the day most settlers run rampant over everyone, we
were told to immediately go to the top of the hill that separates
settlers from Palestinians.
Within a half hour, several Israeli
settler boys between 10-17 came strutting down the road toward
the small Palestinian children playing in front of us. The children
left immediately, and we turned on our cameras as they advanced toward
us. The older boys egged the younger ones to pick up stones and throw
them at us two women who were sitting on a stoop. ...
police said "there's
nothing we can do about it"
nasty kids began a full-on riot, throwing stones at the police and army,
throwing pipes off the top of their settler apartment at homes beneath
them, screaming obscenities, throwing garbage and flashing mirrors in
the faces of the soldiers. Little settler girls started to come down
and throw stones. It was so disgusting; I finally left and got
treatment for my cuts and bruises. The rioting went on for hours, into
the night, where they threw boulders onto the homes of the Palestinians.
TWO DEAD KIDS, KILLED AT HOME
I see comments online on Haaretz
(Israeli paper) or al-Jazeera
or electronic intifada
Zionist jackasses bluntly say "You
lost. Get over it."
However, that's what the Zionist
leaders of Israel say too, with only a hair less bluntness.
I just realized, actually and
historically and literally, in spoken and written word, "You
lost. Get over it." IS a central core theme of
Zionism, as much as Aliyah or any other theme of redemption.
Jews have been disenfranchised
out of a lot of ancestral and historical homes in the past.
They've lost property and accepted that --- when they had no better
choice. I have read a bit about Jews fleeing from place to place
in the Middle Ages in Europe. From a self-centered perspective of
only adding up Jewish needs, I can grasp why this question (below)
was born in Detroit, but have no personal attachment there. On
the other hand, the Dome of the Rock, is not in Detroit, nor the
Stations of the Cross.
was a post online somewhere, maybe Haaretz, but I cant remember
where. I think I was going to respond to it. This is
probably an example of intentional ignorance:
Sam -Why Israel exists
The whole purpose of Israel was to allow jews
a place to go when persecution became intolerable elsewhere.
As it did in Spain,Ukraine,Russia,Germany,Poland,Iran,Syria,Eygp,
France,Venezuela and numerous other places..
OK, that sounds like a good enough cause.
He did not mention Argentina, I understand that many of the Leftist
'disappeared' were Jewish Leftists and their families and friends.
The Jews have been historically the most persecuted
people in the world. Millions upon millions have been killed simply
because they are jewish. This occuring not just in the infamous
holocaust. If all the world jews were to do aliya to Israel there still
would only be 14 million of them. There are nearly a billion muslims in
the world. Most are in the middle east. Can`t they live in peace with
Obviously, this story of past
and of hypothetical future persecution of Jews stands in total
ignorance of current real persecution of
Palestinians, but it's instructive insofar as the self-centered
ignorance of the debater. I mean at very least, he could say
'please let us alone and let us shelter ourselves here' but that would
contradict the basis of Zionism based on eternal land rights and
domination, and expansion into more territory. There are written
plans to seize Lebanon some
day as well. Maybe the Lebanese can just 'get over it' too.
1948 the Arab nations attacked Israel; not the other way around. If the
Arabs had accepted Israel, the last nearly 60 years of wars and
suffering would never had happened.
More ignorance of accepted and proven
facts on what transpired, covered by Finkelstein, much
over-simplification, and a need for utter blamelessness. How
irritating to have to reason with people like this who make the victims
into the perpetrators in order to have their own "innocence".
When you grab a weapon and drive a robber out of your house, is it said
that you attacked him without
cause? Some criminals DO try to use that argument in their
defense -- "he shouldn't have fought back".
previous post, I mentioned Alan Hart's vision of intelligent Palestinians and intelligent
Jews working together in a society in harmony to create wealth
and new inventions. I forgot to mention, another story of Rwanda
(told either by Hart or by a Libertarian Capitalist trying to make a
point about the peace-affirming values of commerce and free trade), in
which a Tutsi woman whose entire family was killed by Hutus now employs
Hutus on her very productive farm, including some who were once
killers. This works out due to the joint practical needs of all
parties, and wealth is being restored.
solution seems out of
the question unless Israel forcibly demolishes all or most settlements,
and the political will of the Isr leadership to use police force to
relocate or repress it's own population is weak. Somewhere I
heard of an Isr leader specifically talking about efforts to avoid that
hot potato by simply delaying it and passing it on.
A One State solution seems impossible for
certain reasons. Some Palestinians who can NEVER forgive Isr and
who blame Jews entirely as a people are counterbalanced
by Israeli Jews who can NEVER forgive or trust Palestinians. From
what I've seen, it seems the Israelis are MORE virulent haters than
Arabs. Videos below.
suggested that Israeli Jews and Palestinian Arabs are both the "cream
of the crop" intellectually of their respective cultures and therefore
the cooperation between the two should lead to explosive inventiveness
and economic progress.
However, at very least, the angry and violent
and racist Israeli settlers, as well as angry and violent and racist
Palestinians, would have to be either have their own exclusionary
residences --- with a strong commitment on economic justice to separate
but truly equal --- more controls than the antebellum
South which re-instituted virtual slavery and virulent racism
of Jim Crow laws and KKK brigades --- or would need massive police
oversight to maintain civil order amongst Palestinians living near
Jews. See shocking Settlers videos
Again, peace and justice was somewhat
instituted in The South by The North in the United States for a few
years, during which time Blacks gained property and were even elected
positions in politics, serving as mayors, sheriffs, and even in
Congress. Then protection was withdrawn, with the expected
results. In some cases, Blacks moved en masse to their own towns,
which the KKK came and terrorized and burnt to the ground.
government has stirred up and maintained racism for it's own political
motives, now it has a problem very difficult to undo, changing the
minds of the entire population.
