Well, I’m totally disgusted with Biden, Congress, the Military Industrial Complex lacking in moral principles destroying life on earth. I look at those babies, those children and weep! This is a deliberate act by Israel! Absolutely evil!

Hi Fran

Another showed a Palestinian man after he was informed that his entire family had been obliterated. He was screaming, crying as another man had his arms around him trying to offer him what comfort he could.

Does IsraHell ever in a million years think there could be “peace” after the monstrosity it has wrought?

I will impart two words of great importance:

FUCK ISRAHELL.

I don't know how he survives the loss of his whole family. I was as active as I could be in the anti-war movement in the states, and discouraged that we had so little impact in stopping anything. It went on and on through one presidency after another, and stopped during the Trump years, and a welcome break. I knew when Biden got in it would start all over again since he was such a strong advocate for war through is political career, and of course he did. I was really disturbed that Gallant so opened defined Palestinians as less then human, and he did it so openly, and without any hesitation, which I thought was absolutely disgusting and wonder if that is the general consensus among those in Israel.

Hi Fran

My friend in Ireland is involved in the tourist business, and he’s told me that yes, the IsraHelli tourist do speak of Palestinians as less than human.

Which disgusts him, of course. We bonded online over a discourse of the Palestinians.

Do you think there were no men whose families had been obliterated in Israel? Do the Palestinians think there could be "peace" after the monstrosity Hamas has wrought? Only after Hamas is destroyed. Every time in the past when agreements were made to stop fighting, Hamas broke them and attacked Israel. They will continue to do so unless they cease to exist.

Israel has used Hamas twice/maybe more.

How come Hamas got into Israel so easily, the country with the iron dome.

This was a set-up by Netanyahu.

Clarence Wilhelm Spangle: by equating Jews with zionists, you take the zionist bait and you serve the zionist cause. The entire basis of zionism is to falsely equate zionists with Jews, to make Jews believe they are zionists, to steal the Jewish identity. Clearly, this has worked with many Jews, especially those who live in the nation of Israel, but certainly not all. In fact, it has worked with a much larger number of U.S. Christians, especially evangelicals, but also with many Catholics, including Joe Biden who has proclaimed himself a zionist on video and who famously said “You don’t have to be a Jew to be a zionist.”

Judaism is not a monolithic organization. There are many divergent sects, many “Judaisms”. I challenge you to even define the word “Jew”. Israel does everything possible to try to define Jews as zionists, and that also seems to be exactly what you’re doing. Many Jews, both inside and outside Israel, do not support the actions of the zionist Israeli government. Many Jews support the Palestinians and denounce the immorality of the Israelis committing genocide. Have you never wondered why your seemingly favorite document, “The Elders of Zion”, is not called “The Elders of Jews”? (Hint: it’s because Jews and zionists are not the same.) So here is my conclusion, people who intentionally and obviously assume the persona that seeks to perpetuate the myth that Jews=zionists (and which evokes memories of the genocide European Jews, like “Nordic Pagan Soldier”) are shills for the zionist cause they claim to hate.

Jack Sirius

Gee, I guess he didn't like your comment?

Do you think the Hamas terrorists asked those babies that they butchered if they were Jews or Zionists before they murdered them?

No, they are maddog murderers that want to kill every Israeli.

That is the true definition of "genocide".

Expand full comment

The reports of the 40 murdered babies, some allegedly beheaded, was all over the mainstream media. However, it has been thoroughly debunked as Israeli/zionist propaganda. If you want to see the proof, visit this list of the names of Israeli deaths published by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz: https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/2023-10-19/ty-article-magazine/israels-dead-the-names-of-those-killed-in-hamas-massacres-and-the-israel-hamas-war/0000018b-325c-d450-a3af-7b5cf0210000.

I believe the youngest person killed was a 3-year-old child. All needless war deaths are tragedies, and the deaths of innocent infants and children are the most tragic and heinous of all. But there are no babies on the list of Israeli dead. Meanwhile, Israeli airstrikes have killed over 10,000 Palestinians in Gaza, of which 4000 were children. How many Palestinians must be killed before you admit we are watching a Palestinian genocide?

This is proven propaganda. Hamas "Freedom Fighters" attacked military targets and attempted to take hostages. The IDF opened fire on everyone.

This is anti-Semitism. If you are seeking justice for the Palestinian people, oppose Zionism, and want peace, call this out for the virulent anti-semitic garbage that it is. Don't let this tragedy give the genuine anti-semites room to move or the Zionists the chance to conflate the two.

THE PROTOCOLS OF ZION ARE A COMPLETE FABRICATION. THE ZIONISTS DO NOT REPRESENT THE JEWS, THEY ARE COLONIAL ANTISEMITIC GENOCIDAL MONSTERS.

AMERICA AND ISRAEL, THE MARRIAGE MADE IN HEAVEN … yeah, right.

And you thought the Zionists had the best interests of the Jews at heart?

Think again.


America and Israel, irrevocably welded together, their leaders pigging out in the $multibillion trough of bribes, kickbacks, secret commissions, gifts and ‘donations’ provided by the Armaments industry.

And underpinning this unholy coupling, the profoundly antisemitic American Christian Fundamentalists, with their literal interpretation of the Bible, ensuring that the Jews are in Jerusalem thereby fulfilling the requirements for Armageddon and the Second Coming, whereupon the New Messiah, arisen from the conflagration, converts the remaining 144,000 Jews to Christianity, thereby bringing about the Final Solution to the Jewish Question.

Thank you for always speaking such clear truth to power! Beyond the sheer audacity of rebuking the only Palestinian in Congress while sponsoring a genocide in Gaza, one aspect that seems to have eluded many observers is that when Congress restricts speech among its own members, it diminishes its institutional capacity to check and balance the executive branch.

In that respect, the bipartisan censure of Rashida Tlaib rises to the level of a constitutional crisis that should concern every American (and by extension people in other countries beholden to Washington's military industrial complex), regardless of political persuasion or their attitudes about Palestine or Israel.

As an American this does not surprise me.. We are hypocritical on so many issues as most governments are, and due to our position in the world much more so. Does a country who continues to be on a murderous rampage throughout most of the 21st century sound like a country that is be held in regard? We open our borders and its a free for all, because we claim we care, yet support a genocide and help pay for it.

I address this confusion in the piece that I published yesterday. Many people are mistaking congressional censure for censorship, but they are fundamentally different things. Congress rebuked its only Palestinian member, but it did not silence her. https://shahidbuttar.substack.com/p/washingtons-chickens-come-home-to

Expand full comment

So if she speaks out again?

Expand full comment

That's a good question. Congress could conceivably expel her, but because that would more directly implicate the institutional interests of the Democratic Party, it's far less likely that the 20 Democrats who defected to join Republicans in censuring Tlaib could get away with expulsion. Does that make sense?

Censureship is a public rebuke, but it doesn't limit her ability to speak. In fact, Congress may ironically have elevated her platform and visibility by trying to make an example out of her.

America is a 2nd NAZI empire

Contact Report 840

Billy:

But everything is done to conceal the truth and to lift the biggest criminal state on Earth, America, up into the sky.

And this on the one hand because it has already incorporated many states in its hegemonic mania, and on the other hand because America's revenge with its NATO murder organisation is feared, of which Ptaah once said, as by the way did Quetzal and some others, that America is a 2nd NAZI empire.

Florena:

We do indeed judge it in that process, for the drive for hegemony, according to our observations and findings, has been driven with evil since ancient times.

And no state on Earth, according to our findings, has waged so many wars and interfered militarily in foreign states' affairs with dastardly murder and war, secret service murder and crime, as well as with racial hatred, in such a way and somehow blindly as America.

And the way America, with its military and so-called 'security forces' and secret services, and in terms of all the intrigues and so forth, has been dedicated to its delusions of hegemony throughout the world since time immemorial, surpasses anything we know of in terms of evil.
