During his weekly sermon, Israeli Chief rabbi used the Hebrew term for nigger before going on to call a black person a “monkey.”
Israeli media outlet Ynet reported last weekend that five staunch supporters of Israel, including Alan Dershowitz, sent a letter to Netanyahu “imploring him to reconsider (a) plan that will see illegal African migrants sent to Uganda or Rwanda, warning of the 'incalculable damage' it could have on Israel and Jews' 'moral standing.'
I am being sued for libel in the High Court in England by Campaign Against Antisemitsm’s chairman Gideon Falter. I have made the decision to fight this crucial battle for freedom of expression even though this fight poses a real risk of bankrupting me and my family.
When I was a young Israeli I learned from our leading military leaders that Israel was not afraid of wars. They said “we know how to deal with tanks, infantry, airplanes. Even ballistic missiles won’t knock us down.” But they added, “if the Palestinians decide one day to march to Jerusalem we won’t be able to offer a military answer.”
GA: If Zionism was initially all about the 'promised land', Neoconservatism stands for the shift towards a 'promised planet.' How do we bridge the gap between the nationalistic aspiration and the globalist agenda? From Yahweh to Zion by Laurent Guyénot offers some interesting answers. Guyénot doesn't attempt to tell us what Yahweh is but instead what the notion of Yahweh represents within the contexts of Judaism, jewish culture, Jewish politics and Jewish identification. Guyénot's offers a very important contribution. I hope that is books are made of fire resistant materials.
I am back in Beirut at the Fourth Global Convention of Solidarity with Palestine. Last night I, along with 9 others thinkers, activists and warriors was honored by The Global Campaign to Return to Palestine for our contribution for the cause.
The charge of ‘antisemitsm’ has become a noise -- a whiny repetitive background disturbance. We have learned to live with it, to accept that some people are just inherently upset and there is nothing we can do to change them or to help them out
Zionism vowed to fix diaspora Jews by means of a ‘homecoming.’ It promised to make the ‘new Hebrews’ into ‘people like all other people.’ The project has been a total failure. Israel is a humongous racist ghetto. It is a country like no other. It has managed to amplify every symptom Zionism was born to eliminate.
The fact that such a Hasbara video wasn’t restrained and became viral within some Jewish and Israeli circles indicates that we are facing a collective that seems to lack the capacity to understand the consequences of its own actions.

Finally on youtube: A close look into the making of The Ghosts Within, a 2010 co-production by Robert Wyatt, Gilad Atzmon and Ros Stephen. The film brings to light the unique relationship between the three artists and explores some of the underlying substances that brought this project to life.
