    Have you ever come across an Irish person so hyper sensitive about Anti-Semitism and who responds to the slightest sniff of it by going off in completely paranoid waxing lyrical rants? If isn't Jewish he is married to a Jewess who has really gotten inside his mind. He also obviously spends a lot time reading Jewish stuff because of the things he pulls up. You can learn a decent bit from roc_ in a way that you cannot from L'Chaim who is super cagey.

    All roc ever drags up is Zionist propaganda, the type of which is readily available to Zionist shills like him.

    I do agree that he's a more interesting character than L'Chaim though, who is cagey and creepy, IMO.

    But stuff that would be obscure to your average or even bright and concerned non-Jew. roc_ sees the world completely from Zionist Jewish goggles. Look I left the Presbyterian Church in Ireland at fourteen but I got sussed very early on in my posting as being from an Ulster Presbyterian background because even though I'm not a Unionist let alone a Loyalist I think and feel in very Ulster Presbyterian ways and I can never escape from that without being utterly false to myself. It would be possible to direct roc_'s energies in much more positive and productive directions but when it comes to very basic fundamentals you are never going to change him. In all years of living here have you ever come across a character remotely similar to him?

    I have L'Chaim on ignore though I look at some of his posts. I enjoyed him being trashed in debate by a flegger but that also showed how little he is concerned about Irish history.

    Just another day in paradise.......

    HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A group of Israeli settlers injured four Palestinians in Hebron city overnight on Friday as they raided the Wadi al-Hassin neighborhood, located directly beside Israel’s illegal Kiryat Arba settlement.

    The Palestinians sustained light to moderate wounds, according to locals, in the attack.

    Palestinian Red Crescent sources said that two Palestinians were transferred to a hospital for treatment, one of whom sustained an arm fracture and the other suffered from a head injury.

    Locals said that Israeli settlers had attacked Palestinian houses in the neighborhood. Several residents told Ma’an that they had reported the incident to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Israeli police.

    Local sources added that Israeli forces were present in the area at the time and had witnessed the assaults, without intervening.

    An Israeli police spokesperson was not immediately available for comment. A spokesperson for ICRC said she would look into reports on the incident.

    Israeli new outlet Ynet reported that a Jewish Israeli and two Palestinians had been injured during a "stone-throwing" incident between Israeli settlers and Palestinians in Hebron.

    Ynet said that the Israeli and Palestinians were evacuated from the scene for medical treatment after the Israeli army "separated both sides," contradicting local testimonies that Israeli authorities in fact had done nothing to prevent the attack on the Palestinian neighborhood and shot stun grenades at Palestinians in the area.

    The pro-Palestinian activist group International Solidarity Movement released a video of the incident, purpotedly showing Israeli settlers throwing stones at Palestinians on their way back from Shabbat prayers. "Soldiers failed to disperse the settlers, but rather chose to disperse the Palestinians present with stun grenades," the group said.



    The settler attack came some two weeks after an Israeli settler takeover of the Abu Rajab family home located in the Old City of Hebron near the Ibrahimi Mosque.

    Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in violation of international law.

    A follow on from this post .

    The IDF is hording "38,000 films, 2.7 million photographs, 96,000 audio recordings and 46,000 maps and aerial photos."

    "These are all scattered amongst Zionist archives in Israel. They have been collected since 1948 under orders from David Ben-Gurion, the first Prime Minister of Israel. Two of the items are labelled “The History of Palestine from 1919” and “Depiction of the IDF’s Treatment and Harsh Handling of Palestinians in the Territories.” These two collections are stored in the central archive in Tel Hashomer, outside Tel Aviv.
    Most of the items were looted and confiscated in the 1982 Lebanon war. They include never-before seen films seized in Beirut, which “were erased from consciousness and history” as Sela said. She recently made her first film titled “Looted and Hidden: Palestinian Archives in Israel”.
    In her film, Sela also includes her encounter with Khadijeh Habashneh, a Jordan-based Palestinian filmmaker and former head of the Palestinian Cinema Institute (PCI). The PCI was active from the end of the 1960s until the early 80s. The Institute’s archive documented Palestinians’ suffering in refugee camps, resistance and battles against the IDF, as well as everyday life from even before 1948.
    The archive, based in Lebanon by 1982, disappeared after the IDF entered Beirut. Sela provides testimonies from numerous soldiers of looting many items and depositing them in Israeli archives. After years of legal battles, she was permitted to see more archives, some of which belonging to Habashneh. She unveiled many more of these items in her books, articles and catalogues, and in her recent film.
    Dr. Gish Amit, an expert on Zionist cultural aspects at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, conducted similar research. The study exposes Israel’s attempt to also hide written material seized from Palestinians. According to Haaretz, Israel’s National Library holds about 6,500 Palestinian books and manuscripts which were taken from homes whose owners left in 1948. They were collected by Israeli soldiers and The National Library.
    Sela compared Israel’s erasure of history to that of the Nazis. She said “as the daughter of Holocaust survivors. I grew up in a home without photographic historical memory. Nothing. My history starts only with the meeting of my parents, in 1953. It’s only from then that we have photos. Before that – nothing.”
    When asked what should be done with the material, she said it had to be returned just as Israel fights to return what the Nazis looted from Jews in the holocaust. “The historical story is different, but by the same criterion, practice what you preach. These are cultural and historical materials of the Palestinian people”, she added.
    In her opinion, Israel wants not only geographic control over Palestine, but control over culture and consciousness as well. Seizing visual history prevents the construction of identity, and what Israel did was seize the history of a whole people.
    Sela admits that there is much more to be unveiled, and believes that the “erased narrative” should be restored into history books."

    I have that the Anti-BDS Bill that is going through in the States defines "Israel" in such a way as to include the "Settlements" within it, does anyone know about this here?

    Source? Also obesity and malnutrition can go together easily because you can only afford the most trashy food so you gorge on it.

    Christian Peacemaker Teams - Palestine

    Yesterday at 15:19 ·
    Living under occupation and apartheid, going home after Friday prayers is by no means simple for Palestinians in Hebron. With three checkpoints located within 100 metres of one another, stops, checks, detainments, intimidation and restrictions are commonplace as Palestinians attempt to access their place of worship and return home afterwards.
    As this Palestinian man - in need of a walking stick - attempted to go home, he was aggressively stopped by an Israeli Border Police man, while settlers drove by to enjoy this act of intimation and control. Unable to pass through a 'Jewish area only', the Palestinian man was forced to take the long route home, while the Israeli Border Police man spat at the floor where he had stood.

    Hamas trains thousands of kids in ISIS-style camps in order to use them as terrorists.

    If war erupts, Hamas will say: "They were just kids".

    The proxy war in Syria has a lot to do with the Zionist colonial project as did the invasion of Iraq.
