Israel's Fascists Call for Genocide on Palestinians

US Statement Beyond 'Not Helpful'

For many years and covered by numerous bloggers here @EuroTrib, all warned of gross violations Geneva Conventions and Human Rights Abuse by the Jewish State of Israel. Most voices have been silent for many years. Incomprehensible.

Gaza art by children under occupation regime -- apartheid

Netanyahu fascism making inroads into Europe -- allies

Senior Foreign Ministry sources who confirmed the planned embassy transfer linked the move to Orban's desire to help out Netanyahu, granting the premier a diplomatic achievement amid political instability over his government's contentious plans to overhaul Israel's judicial system.

Netanyahu has long had close relations with Orban, who has been in power since 2010. Their bond has further tightened since Netanyahu's return to power after the general election in November, with the two showering praise upon each other and looking to further both bilateral ties and their own connection.

Tuvia Tenenbom talks about The Taming of the Jew, his unsettling recent book about the Jewish situation in Great Britain

Tenenbom says that his book shot to number one on Israel's bestseller list because his reporting was a revelation even to Israelis, who had little idea of how virulently anti-Israel and anti-Jew the "peace industry" operating in midst can be.

(For all that, Tenenbom is glad that Netanyahu is no longer the leader of Israel. While acknowledging the former prime minister as a "genius politician," Tenenbom told me that his take on Netanyahu's ouster is that "overall, it's a blessing that it happened...You know, he did some good things, but he did a lot of bad things. And for me, the spiritual thing is the most important. You know, I saw that he taught that lying is okay. That selfishness is okay in politics." As a role model, Netanyahu fell short by demonstrating that even if one lies, it's okay "as long as you advance in life, as long as you get what you want. And I think that is a very hard lesson, a very bad lesson to give the people.")

Tenenbom's latest book, The Taming of the Jew, chronicles his travels in the British Isles and the anti-Semitism he encountered in all strata of society, from workingman's pubs to high levels of government. Begun after Brexit and completed just before the worldwide pandemic lockdowns, the book is not as explosive as his earlier work, in part because Jewish issues are not as central to the British narrative, in part because his reputation seems to have preceded him - many prominent British Jews who could have enriched his story simply would not talk to him.

What Tenenbom found out is that when Jewish issues do emerge from the background in Britain, things get ugly rather quickly.

"I am sickened that Labour is now perceived by many as a racist, antisemitic party," I said. "Jeremy Corbyn and those around him are on the wrong side of so many issues from Russia, to Syria, to Venezuela. If he ever became prime minister, it would be a threat to our national security and international alliances."

With that, I walked away from the party I had loved and served for all my adult life.

US Joe Biden Partners with Israel in Gaza Carnage

Happened before during the Bush and Obama administration. Shipping arms and munitions to replenish stocks used by Israel to crush the Palestinian people in Gaza. Unconscionable ... immoral ... equates to war crimes and/or complicit to bombing civilians. The United States will live with impunity, Israeli leaders will be judged by the International Criminal Court in The Hague. The White House and U.S. Congress will always stand by Israel to avoid prosecution.

I remember this iconic image of war on Northern border ...

Online controversy over graffiti by Israeli kids | JPost - July 25, 2006 |

In the public relations battle brewing on-line, there is a new eye to the center of the storm surrounding the war with Hizbullah - a series of photos showing Israeli children writing messages on shells meant for targets in Lebanon. Questions over the photos' authenticity have been put to rest by authorities that were present during the incident, which occurred on July 17 near the northern border. The mostly local children had been brought to see the shells by their parents. Although it remains unclear who encouraged them to write the messages, their colorful scribbles, including a Star of David, hearts, and "From Israel, with Love," have appeared in dozens of blogs, or on-line journals, and on-line photo hosting sites.

In the square,

the minstrels tighten the strings of their instruments,

for the farewell song.

Slow down! Be brief so the song will not last long,

and the cadence does not interrupt the preludes,

which is bilateral and has a unilateral finale:

Long live life!

Take your time! Hold me, so the wind will not scatter me around

Even riding the wind, I can not escape the alphabets

If I did not stand on a mountain,

I would have been happy with an eagle hermitage:

no light is higher!

But such glory, crowned with an infinite blue gold

is hard to visit: The lonely there remains lonely,

and he can not disembark on his feet

The eagle can not walk

nor can the human fly

O what a summit that looks like an abyss

O You, high mountain solitude!

I have no role in what I became

or will become...

It is luck. Luck has no name

We might call it the blacksmith of our fates

call it the sky mail carrier

call it the carpenter of the newborn's crib

and the coffin of the deceased

or call it the custodian of gods in legends

in which we wrote the texts for them

and hid behind the Olympic ...

The hungry pottery vendors believed them

but the satiated gold masters did not believe

It is the misfortune of the author

that fantasy is reality on theatre floors

Behind the scenes matter differs

The question is not: When?

but: Why? How? and Who?

Who am I to say to you

what I say to you?

I could have not existed

and the caravan could have fallen in an ambush,

and the family could have lost a son

The one who is writing this poem

character by character,

bleeding and bleeding on this sofa

with black blood,

not a crow ink or its voice,

but the whole night

squeezed drop by drop,

in the hands of luck and talent

Poetry could have earned more if

he was not, no one else, a Hoopoe

on the brink of an abyss

Perhaps, he said: If I was someone else,

I would become me, once again

This is how I bluff:

Narcissus is not beautiful as he thought.

His makers entangled him with a mirror.

He prolonged his meditation in the air distilled with water...

Had he been able to see others,

he would have loved a girl gazing at him,

oblivious the reindeers running between the lilies and the daisies ...

Had he been a bit more clever,

[ Parent ]
he would have broken his mirror

and saw how much he was the others...

Had he been free,

he would have not become a legend...

Mirage is the traveler's book in the desert ...

Without it, without the mirage,

he would not continue walking in search for water.

He says - this is a cloud -

and carries a jug of hope in one hand,

and with the other hand on his waist.

Beating on the sand to collect the clouds in a hole.

The mirage calls on him,

seduces him, deceives him, and lifts him up:

Read if you can!

Write if you can!

He reads: water, water, and water

He writes a line on the sand:

if it was not for the mirage,

I would have not been alive until now

It is fortunate for the traveler that hope

is the twin of despair,

or his improvised poetry

When the sky appears gray

and I see a rose suddenly grew from the cracks of a wall,

I do not say: the sky is gray

but contemplate the rose

and say to it: What a beautiful day!

I play no role in the poem, unless

the inspiration stops

Inspiration is the luck of the skill,

should it strive

I could have not fallen in love

with the girl who asked me: What time it is now?

Had I not been on my way to the movies ...

She could have not been a heart stealer as she was,

or a dark ambiguous desire ...

This is how words are born.

I train my heart to love

so it can have room for roses and thorns ...

My vocabularies are mystical.

My desires are sensible

I am not who I am now unless

these two meet: I, and my feminine I

O Love! What are you?

How much are you what you are, and what you are not.

O Love! Blow on us thunderstorms

to become what you love for us

a divine solutions to the physical.

And flow into an estuary of two sides.

You - visible or invisible - have no form

We love you when we love by chance

You are the luck of the poor

It is my misfortune that I repeatedly

survived the dying of love

and I am fortunate that I am still fragile

to enter into the experiment again!

The expert lover says in his secret:

Love is our sincere lie

and when his lover hears that,

she says: love comes and goes

as lightning and thunderstorms

To life I say: slow down, wait for me

until the drunkenness dries from my glass ...

The are communal roses in the garden,

and air can not escape the rose

Wait for me so the Nightingales do not escape

and I do not make a mistake in the rhythm
