Israeli Deputy Speaker Calls For Concentration Camps In Gaza, Sending Palestinians To Other Countries

By: Tuesday August 5, 2014 6:45 am

Writers for The Times of Israel are not the only ones looking to obliterate the Palestinians in Gaza. Moshe Feiglin, the Deputy Speaker of the Israeli Knesset, has said it is time for Israel to take all of Gaza, destroy Hamas and all of their supporters, and send the Palestinians to concentration camps on the Sinai border until Israel can find countries willing to accept them.

 

US Condemns Israel Bombing School, Netanyahu Tells Kerry To Never Second Guess Him Again

By: Monday August 4, 2014 6:51 am

Better late than never? After weeks of defending Israel’s strikes on Palestinian civilians in Gaza as necessary and appropriate, the US State Department finally issued a statement condemning one of Israel’s attacks. The State Department labeled Israel’s shelling of yet another UN school as “disgraceful” and called on Israel to “meet its own standards and avoid civilian casualties.”

Haunting the Conscience of the World

By: Thursday July 31, 2014 6:30 pm

1,422 Palestinians have been killed.

8,265 have been injured.

And Gaza’s long night is far from over.

We’re told that Israel has no choice but to defend itself. NBC keeps telling us that. ABC keeps telling us that. CNN and CBS keep telling us that, Fox keeps bellowing that dogma day in and day out, but their attempts to justify the IDF’s rampage in Gaza, their relentless efforts to blame Hamas for the carnage are not succeeding. Because of the reports of independent journalists, because of the courage of the people of Gaza and their use of social media, the world is seeing how Israel “defends itself”.

Interim Nuclear Deal With Iran Does Not Isolate Israel Nor Signal a Shift by the United States

By: Monday November 25, 2013 1:00 pm

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the deal a “historic mistake.” was seized upon as evidence that this must be bad for Israel. Netanyahu also said, “This accord must bring about one outcome: the dismantling of Iran’s military nuclear capability,” as if that was not what the interim deal could achieve.

Mr. Obama Goes to Israel; Fraud on the Path to War?

By: Wednesday March 13, 2013 5:51 pm

President Barack Obama is set to arrive in Israel next week- and has set the bar for peace about as low as it can get, saying that he won’t be carrying in a grand peace plan for the middle east when he arrives. So, the Obama visit is a low expectations game of international charades that, depending on how cynical your point of view, is either a solidification of allies before world war three ensues or a simply friends helping each other tread water in the sea of status quo that – in the powder keg of the middle east, is as untenable as David Hasselhoff’s sobriety.

Obama Administration’s Complicity in Permitting Israel to Escalate Its Bombing of Gaza

By: Monday November 19, 2012 2:30 pm

Israeli air strikes have brought the death toll in Gaza to at least 100 people killed. Hundreds have been injured. Israeli forces have launched over 950 air strikes while Palestinian militants have fired over 1,000 projectiles causing minor wounds to multiple Israelis. A rocket killed three Israelis on Thursday, but at least a third of the projectiles have been intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome defense system, which the United States helped fund through hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid.

Israel Considers Any Palestinian Infrastructure That Can Be Connected to Hamas to Be ‘Terrorist’

By: Saturday November 17, 2012 12:00 pm

The Times reported spokesperson for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Mark Regev, stated, “Government buildings had been targeted because Hamas ‘makes no distinction between its terrorist military machine and the government structure…We have seen Hamas consistently using so-called civilian facilities for the purposes of hiding their terrorist military machine, including weapons.”

Under this concept, it is hard to see how Israel would not be able to justify hitting any part of Gaza and killing any person inside or nearby that infrastructure. Saturday morning, according to Haaretz, Israel’s air force targeted Gaza’s police headquarters, other government buildings and a mosque in Rafah. It also is impossible to see how a cease-fire can be brokered if Israel is going to destroy the offices of political leaders elected in disputed or undisputed Palestinian elections.

By: Thursday September 20, 2012 1:30 am

David Gregory’s self-described “Leader of the Jewish People” (news to a lot of people, especially the Jewish ones) Bibi Netanyahu, has decided the smartest thing the Prime Minister of a State quite reliant on bi-partisan American largesse could do is openly side with one of them to get the bombing started.

Israel Forms Snap Unity Government

By: Tuesday May 8, 2012 9:30 am

In an unexpected development, Benjamin Netanyahu has canceled early elections in Israel, instead forming a unity government with Kadima, the center-right rival recently taken over by Shaul Mofaz. The elections, which would have taken place in September, will now get delayed a year, which ironically may be a good thing for what some call Israel’s worst government ever.
