Subject: BS: Terrorism, Again

Date: 11 Jan 16 - 10:10 AM

If Shin Bet says THIS is a terrorist organization, I suppose we should believe them.

No?

"Shin Bet says the group poses a continuing danger of violence"

I wonder whether they've ever said anything similar about the people who give the orders to the IDF.

The IDF, just following orders:

My Truth: "Right now a terrorist is receiving medical care after attempting to stab IDF soldiers this morning. The soldiers gave an emergency infusion after the terrorist tried to stab them.

This is our truth."

Israel hunts down and prosecutes Israelis who commit terrorist acts unlike the Palestinians who glorify and celebrate child-murdering terrorists. Who holds the moral high ground here?

Not the Israeli regime. The only high ground they hold is the high ground they've stolen for their illegal settlements.

"The only high ground they hold is the high ground they've stolen for their illegal settlements."

There are no illegal settlements - unless of course one assumes that Jews should not own property or build in those areas because they are jews. Every current Jewish "settlement" is on land owned by Jews before 1948 or purchased after 1967. Settlements that tried to set up on land that was not Jewish owned have been dismantled. We continue to hear the term "illegal", but "legal and illegal" has to be more that political desires and interests. It has to refer to law. And, frankly, law established during the illegal Jordanian occupation of the area in which jewish property was confiscated and retitied, and current PA regulations that ban sales or ownership of property by Jews is not valid

Sorry, Steve. You can call it 'a silly post' if it makes you feel self·righteously comfortable in your unacknowledged racism (or perhaps, to be kind, your good old British instinct to support the underdog); but it happens to be 100% accurate re the status (legally purchased for cash from the actual owners) of the terrain concerned...

Illegally held ground.

Yep, I'm comfortable with that.

As are The UN

The U.K. Government.

The EU

Oh and I'm comfortable with it having been there and seen the vicious attitude of the Israeli government in their support of their home grown fascists.

Judea and Samaria was never "Palestinian" land, it was a part of Mandate Palestine given to the Jews by the British for a Jewish homeland. Before that it was under occupation by the Ottoman Turks for 600 years. Under the Ottomans very little land was owned by anyone, the Ottoman rulers preference was to lease land rather than title it. Jews had been living in Judea and Samaria for generations. They were ethnically cleansed, dispossessed and had their properties confiscated and retitled, all done illegally under the illegal occupation of Jordan.

It's not about the historical situation, it's about bulldozing the homes of people just to let others live there on the basis of racism. It's immoral, wrong and shameful.

If Shin Bet says THIS is a terrorist organization, I suppose we should believe them.

It's a good thing that Shin Bet has identified, is policing and prosecuting these criminals. This is the security service of a civilized country doing it's job.

This is what Prime Minister Netanyahu said after visiting the parents and brother of the baby killed by the terrorists in the arson attack:

"When you stand next to the bed of this small child, and his infant brother has been so brutally murdered, we are shocked, we are outraged. We condemn this. There is zero tolerance for terrorism wherever it comes from, whatever side of the fence it comes from."

Contrast that with what Abbas had to say about Palestinian terrorists murdering Jews:

Abbas was quoted as accusing Jews of "defiling the Aqsa Mosque with their filthy feet." Abbas also announced that, "Every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem is pure blood."

If he did say it, he is only giving his perception of the Arab view, and we all know that was the Arab view anyway.

But Israelis and Arabs can have so much in common...

After the events in Cologne (mentioned in at least two deleted threads) some Germans feel that they have to take the law in their own hands. Among several attacks there was one in Dresden where two Israelis were beaten up and injured by half a dozen most likely right wing (Neonazi?) youngsters screaming "Fucking Arabs".
I ponder if it would have helped them to tell their attackers that they are mistaken or if that would have increased their plight.

Do you actually have any grounds for claiming that Ben Gurion didn't make the statement - if so, what are they - so far you have just denied it because it doesn't suit your arguments in favour of State terrorism
Jim Carroll
Another interesting quote from a Zionist Rabbi
"Speaking of quotes, here is one from Vladimir Jabotinsky, father of Revisionist Zionism: "The Arabs loved their country as much as the Jews did. Instinctively,
they understood Zionist aspirations very well, and their decision to resist them
was only natural ….. There was no misunderstanding between Jew and Arab, but
a natural conflict. …. No Agreement was possible with the Palestinian Arab;
they would accept Zionism only when they found themselves up against an 'iron wall,' when they realize they had no alternative but to accept Jewish settlement."

I saw somewhere an account of a speech that Moshe Dayan gave, back in the '50's, at a funeral of an Israeli killed in a terrorist attack. I wish I could find the source. But his speech was described as starting out sounding like an eloquent defense of the right of Palestinians to resist. He talked of how they lost land and homes, and spoke poignantly of what it must be like to look across a border at your home, but not be allowed to go back to it. But then he went on to say basically what Jabotinsky said – some version of, "They may have a right to fight us but we have to win."

As I frequently point out in arguments about the history of the I/P situation, such quotes prove that the facts are not really in dispute. No serious historian believes that the Zionists just settled on empty land, or even that the Palestinians didn't have valid reasons to resist. The dispute is all about values. Benny Morris was one of the first Israeli mainstream historians to expose the ethnic cleansing of Palestine (Palestinian historians, of course, were saying this from the beginning). But Morris then concludes by saying basically the same thing as Ben Gurion, Jabotinsky, Dayan and the others – "Yeah, we did it, but it was necessary and we had to win."

It is both necessary to be educated about the facts, as well as to look at with what system of values we view them. Thankfully, we have the Henry Cliffords, the Phil Weiss's and the Adam Horowitz's of the world around to remind us of both.

To understand the history of Palestinian dispossession look to the words of Zion

The fact that Arabs are also a semitic people is a semantic irrelevance. The term 'Antisemitism', by long usage which to any linguist trumps adventitious & factitious etymology, only means prejudice against Jews -- consult any decent dictionary*. The affectation that it must mean Arabs too is a profoundly irritating bit issue-muddying smartarsery.

No backers for your "Ben Gurion didn't say it campaign" yet Keith?

You originall claimed he said it in interview, but you were wrong.
If he said it, it was in 1956 (!) but only in a private conversation so we only have one person who claims to have heard it.
Not very convincing Jim, and he is only supposed to have said that Arabs believed their land had been stolen which is hardly a revelation.

I just do not understand why you think it so significant.

You don't see a statement by the father of the Israeli state describing the occupation of Palestine as having "stolen their land" significant - my, my - you are in a bad way!
The man he said it to, Nahum Goldmann, was the founder of The World Jewish Council - a respected man in Israel and throughout the world and the last person to make up such a profound statement
Now, once again - were are your supporters?

No. Not in 1956.
Israel was created by the UN just nine years previously.
If anyone had stolen the land it was the UN.

MYTH

"Jews stole Arab land."

    FACT

    Despite the growth in their population, the Arabs continued to assert they were being displaced. From the beginning of World War I, however, part of Palestine's land was owned by absentee landlords who lived in Cairo, Damascus and Beirut. About 80 percent of the Palestinian Arabs were debt-ridden peasants, semi-nomads and Bedouins. 18

    Jews actually went out of their way to avoid purchasing land in areas where Arabs might be displaced. They sought land that was largely uncultivated, swampy, cheap and, most important, without tenants. In 1920, Labor Zionist leader David Ben-Gurion expressed his concern about the Arab fellahin, whom he viewed as "the most important asset of the native population." Ben-Gurion said "under no circumstances must we touch land belonging to fellahs or worked by them." He advocated helping liberate them from their oppressors. "Only if a fellah leaves his place of settlement," Ben-Gurion added, "should we offer to buy his land, at an appropriate price." 19

    It was only after the Jews had bought all of the available uncultivated land that they began to purchase cultivated land. Many Arabs were willing to sell because of the migration to coastal towns and because they needed money to invest in the citrus industry. 20

    When John Hope Simpson arrived in Palestine in May 1930, he observed: "They [Jews] paid high prices for the land, and in addition they paid to certain of the occupants of those lands a considerable amount of money which they were not legally bound to pay." 21

    In 1931, Lewis French conducted a survey of landlessness for the British government and offered new plots to any Arabs who had been "dispossessed." British officials received more than 3,000 applications, of which 80 percent were ruled invalid by the Government's legal adviser because the applicants were not landless Arabs. This left only about 600 landless Arabs, 100 of whom accepted the Government land offer. 22

    In April 1936, a new outbreak of Arab attacks on Jews was instigated by a Syrian guerrilla named Fawzi al--Qawukji, the commander of the Arab Liberation Army. By November, when the British finally sent a new commission headed by Lord Peel to investigate, 89 Jews had been killed and more than 300 wounded. 23

    The Peel Commission's report found that Arab complaints about Jewish land acquisition were baseless. It pointed out that "much of the land now carrying orange groves was sand dunes or swamp and uncultivated when it was purchased. . . . there was at the time of the earlier sales little evidence that the owners possessed either the resources or training needed to develop the land." 24 Moreover, the Commission found the shortage was "due less to the amount of land acquired by Jews than to the increase in the Arab population." The report concluded that the presence of Jews in Palestine, along with the work of the British Administration, had resulted in higher wages, an improved standard of living and ample employment opportunities. 25

    Even at the height of the Arab revolt in 1938, the British High Commissioner to Palestine believed the Arab landowners were complaining about sales to Jews to drive up prices for lands they wished to sell. Many Arab landowners had been so terrorized by Arab rebels they decided to leave Palestine and sell their property to the Jews. 27

    The Jews were paying exorbitant prices to wealthy landowners for small tracts of arid land. "In 1944, Jews paid between $1,000 and $1,100 per acre in Palestine, mostly for arid or semiarid land; in the same year, rich black soil in Iowa was selling for about $110 per acre." 28

    By 1947, Jewish holdings in Palestine amounted to about 463,000 acres. Approximately 45,000 of these acres were acquired from the Mandatory Government; 30,000 were bought from various churches and 387,500 were purchased from Arabs. Analyses of land purchases from 1880 to 1948 show that 73 percent of Jewish plots were purchased from large landowners, not poor fellahin. 29 Those who sold land included the mayors of Gaza, Jerusalem and Jaffa. As'ad el--Shuqeiri, a Muslim religious scholar and father of PLO chairman Ahmed Shuqeiri, took Jewish money for his land. Even King Abdullah leased land to the Jews. In fact, many leaders of the Arab nationalist movement, including members of the Muslim Supreme Council, sold land to Jews.

"The Palestinians have rejected every offer for a two state solution that Israel has accepted:"
Every "offer" has entailed Palestinians leaving than they have occupied for many centuries to make room for Israeli settlers - every single one.
It is little wonder that thy have refused - and that Israel has accepted.
Britain gave away Palestine in order to wash their hands of a troublesome colony - they left to the sound of hand grenades being tossed into occupied homes by Israeli "freedom fighters".
That "freedom" was won by acts of terror such as the bombing of The King David Hotel and street attacks against military and civilian alike, not unlike the present knife attacks against Israelis, only far more deadly and efficient.   
Israeli aggression towards the Palestinians to further expansionism mounting to crimes against humanity has continued ever since, protectd largely by over 100 US vetoes in the UN - yet the Palesrinians are presented as "the aggressor" - the extremism by the Israelis has reached such a point that it has been condemned by Te Us and its poodle the UK.
Things have come to such a state in Israel that if has become necessary to lock away the writings of David Ben Gurion for fear of embarrassment
None of this will be responded to by the David Irvings of this forum - Keith may have one more go in conjuring a "historian" to back up his support for terrorism but so far, he and 'Brucie of the Shadows' have remained silent on the facts and will probably continue to do so.

Before Jom the Infallible starts up, IIRC Great Britain was given Mandate Responsibility for Palestine in 1921 by an International Organisation called the League of Nations. The Mandate had a finite term of 27 years after which time Great Britain ceased to have any responsibility for the mandated territory. In the course of those 27 years Great Britain could only act with the agreement and approval of the League of Nations.

According to my arithmetic 1921 + 27 years brings us to 1948 and if memory serves me correct that is when Great Britain departed and the Jews declared their independence and founded the sovereign state of Israel, immediately recognised by the U.S.S.R., the USA and the United Nations. All of Israel's Arab neighbours immediately went to war with Israel and were comprehensively defeated. Instead of opting for peace the Arabs elected to go to war and have been losing ever since - more fool them.

So you see Jom - washing hands off anything just simply did not enter into it - Great Britain relinquished mandate responsibility exactly when they originally agreed to do precisely that.

The facts of the 'colony' question are that Palestine'; governance was 'mandated' to Britain by the League of Nations at end of WW1. It was ∴ never a 'colony' as such, in any meaningful sense. The legal question, as to how far the Mandate remained valid after the League of Nations ceased to exist in 1946, was never satisfactorily settled; but the British maintained a 'de facto' administration, of questionable validity, & perhaps some persecutionary authoritarianism [eg flogging & executing some whom elements of the Jewish population would have regarded as guerilla freedom fighters and the British would call 'terrorists'; and receiving back what the Jewish groups in their turn would call 'reprisal actions':- like the assassination of Lord Moyne; the kidnapping and caning of an MP sergeant; & even more notoriously the hanging of two sergeants in Galilee; & the attempted letter-bombing in London of a former administrator which in fact killed his unfortunate brother] until official withdrawal in May 1948, when the State of Israel, which had been authorised by a partition agreement passed by the UN, was proclaimed.

"Jews had been living in Judea and Samaria for generations "
Arabs have been living there for many centuries - both have an equal right to do so - neither have a right to drive the other out.
I've yet to hear the Arabs accused of expansionism - they are the victims of it; I've yet to hear of Arabs setting up an Apartheid State - but they will be the victims if it ever succeeds.
The Israelis are so proud of their history that they have locked away the writings of their founders; they are so ready to associate with their Arab neighbors that they have created armed checkpoints, built Berlin-type walls to keep them out; they are so ready to encourage their people to be friendly with their Arab neighbours that they have banned a book being used in school;s because it "encourages association": they are so ready to share the land that they have a long-term policy of forcibly driving the Arabs out to replace them with settlers of their own faith....
Both have been there since the year dot - unless they learn to live together, their children, their childrens' children and their childrens' childrens' children...... will continue slaughtering each other.
The land is not the property of one faith or national or cultural group - it belongs to all who live there - at the present time, and for a long time past it is the right wing Israeli regimes who have been the aggressors.
By the way Mike - I wasn't having a pop at the efforts to set up The State of Israel - to a degree, the 'terrorism' that took place was inevitable and, given the circumstances the post war Jews found themselves in, necessary.

"Britain steamed off back home, leaving the county in chaos by favouring the Zionists"
.,,.
Like most assertions in this thread, this is a matter of perception. It seemed to us at the time that the Brits had carefully ensured that the 6 [count them -- six] Arab armies were well poised to steam in as soon as they steamed out: particularly that of Transjordan, The Arab League, trained by British Glubb Pasha --

"Lieutenant-General Sir John Bagot Glubb, KCB, CMG, DSO, OBE, MC (16 April 1897, Preston, Lancashire – 17 March 1986), known as Glubb Pasha, was a British soldier, scholar and author, who led and trained Transjordan's Arab Legion between 1939 and 1956 as its commanding general" Wikipedia

Some more sruff to ignore - from inside Israel
"The population of Jewish settlers in the occupied West Bank has surged during Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's years in office, growing at more than twice the pace of Israel's overall population, according to newly obtained official figures.
Settlement growth also was strong beyond Israel's separation barrier, seen by many as the basis for a border between Israel and a future Palestinian state.
The figures reflect Netanyahu's continued support for settlement construction, even while repeatedly stating his commitment to the eventual establishment of an independent Palestinian state as part of a future peace agreement. They also could be a topic of discussion as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry meets with Netanyahu and European officials this week over a promised UN Security Council proposal dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
While Israeli leaders of all political persuasions have built settlements for decades, the U.S. and western allies have dwindling patience for their construction.
From the beginning of 2009 until the beginning of 2014 — Netanyahu returned to office in March 2009 — the Jewish settler population in the West Bank grew 23 percent, to 355,993 people. In comparison, the overall population has grown 9.6 percent to just over 8 million in that time. Figures for 2014 are not expected before late next year.
The rate of settler population growth slowed slightly under Netanyahu, from 31 percent during the previous five years under his predecessors Ariel Sharon and Ehud Olmert. Olmert especially took relatively little heat for the settlements because he was seen as a moderate.
In all, the settler population has more than doubled in the 21 years since Israel and the Palestinians have been engaged in an on-and-off peace process aimed at a partition of the Holy Land.
Israel captured the West Bank in the 1967 Mideast war, and prime ministers of all political affiliations have allowed and sometimes encouraged settlement of the territory.
The Palestinians claim the West Bank, east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip for their future state. They say all Israeli construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem is illegal — a position with wide international support. Israel withdrew all its troops and settlers from Gaza in 2005.
In a situation that challenges Israel's claims to being a democracy, the more than 2 million Palestinians in the West Bank cannot vote for the Israeli government that controls much of their lives, while Jewish settlers can.
Netanyahu repeatedly has drawn U.S. ire with controversial construction plans. Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon suggested last week that the government would have liked to do more if not for the U.S. pressure.
"We are very, very careful not to push the envelope too much," Yaalon said. "This (U.S.) administration won't be around forever and I hope it is temporary." Even so, he boasted that settlements are growing faster than "any other part of the country."

Thanks, Jim. Yes, as I interpreted, you meant 'Palestine', where this "British staff" was based", not 'Israel, which did not then yet exist; which was confusing.

As is your use of "Zionists", by which you seem to mean the Jews then settled in [then] Palestine; whereas Zionism was actually a world-wide political movement working for the establishment of a Jewish State in [then] Palestine. It is arguable that "Zionism"'s ends were achieved, and so it ceased to exist in any viable sense, with the proclamation of Israel in 1948; and the word has now degenerated into one of those quasi-racist terms of implied semi-abuse, best avoided IMO. I know that is by no means any of your motivation in using it; but believe it does leave your implications open to misunderstanding.

No I mean (or I assume the article meant) extreme Zionism.
I knew Jewish families in Manchester who were far from Zionist in their outlook - Jews yes, but of all political and religious shades
- some even communists based on their experiences at the hands of the right (my father once said that there would never have been a Communist Party if it hadn't been for lapsed Catholics and disillusioned Jews).
It was in that period I saw the shift from unquestioning support of Israel to an opposition to what was happening there.
One of the most memorable people I ever met was Les Parrington, who ran a bookshop in Liverpool.
He had moved Germany to Israel, gone on to South Africa, from where he was expelled for his political activities, and ended up running a left-wing bookshop at the top of Mount Pleasant - a lovely, gentle man who taught me much about humanity - probably long dead.
Many of my father fellow-prisoners in Spain where Jewish - I was privileged to meet some of them at his funeral where they tuned up in droves.
I am aware of the part Zionism played in setting up the state, just as I am aware how it has become a weapon of oppression now - no different from any religious body who has abandoned its ideals..

New antisemitism is the concept that a new form of antisemitism has developed in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, emanating simultaneously from the far-left, radical Islam, and the far-right, and tending to manifest itself as opposition to Zionism and the State of Israel. The concept generally posits that much of what purports to be criticism of Israel by various individuals and world bodies, is, in fact, tantamount to demonization, and that, together with an alleged international resurgence of attacks on Jews and Jewish symbols, and an increased acceptance of antisemitic beliefs in public discourse, such demonization represents an evolution in the appearance of antisemitic beliefs.

This is quite shocking. And I have seen all the photos and videos and evidence myself.

The United Nations position is clear: We condemn strongly the rocket attacks. These must stop immediately.

We condemn the use of civilian sites – schools, hospitals and other civilian facilities - for military purposes.

But even his critics admit that he is not an anti-Semite. And though his reports are generally critical of Israel, his memorabilia hobby doesn't seem to inform his work in any way (though no one but Mr Garlasco can know for sure).
The blogger who broke the story admits as much, arguing that Human Rights Watch "couldn't notice anything wrong with the way [Mr Garlasco] approached the conflict because, well, that's how they all approach the conflict."
Perhaps they all collect Nazi memorabilia too, or perhaps it doesn't matter. Therein lies the problem. The controversy, made relevant by Mr Garlasco's critical reports on Israel, seems to have little bearing on the substance of those reports.

concept, but rather it abused the very protections
afforded by the law for military advantage,
putting the civilian population of Gaza at great
risk.
Situating its operational headquarters
in Gaza's main hospital, the entire military
machinery of Hamas was embedded in civilian
locations, private homes and a plethora of
sensitive sites such as medical facilities, mosques
and schools. These included facilities run by
the United Nations in multiple instances, from
which it must be concluded that the relevant

own nations' adherence to LOAC for their gain.
HLMG members have a wealth of experience at the
very highest operational and policy levels as regards

Our purpose is to add a professional military and
legal element to this debate, which at times has been
ill-informed and politicised, and which is of vital

The HLMG had unprecedented access to Israel's
decision makers, from the Prime Minister and
Defence Minister, through the military top-
level leadership to individual unit commanders
and soldiers as well as civilians affected by the
fighting.   Former officials who have retired since
the conflict took place were also made available.
The HLMG was able to extensively examine all
pertinent aspects of Israel's conduct, as well as the
country's political, military and legal structures.
Israel's government and military offered a level of
cooperation in seeking to illuminate their actions
that is highly unusual in such a context, offering
open, clear responses to an examination that went
far beyond what our own countries would expect

Greg, please say which of their statements is factually incorrect, bearing in mind the statement of Ban Ki-Moon,

"As we speak, rockets from Hamas and Islamic Jihad continue to be fired on Israel. I have just seen myself with the Prime Minister all kinds of rockets fired by Hamas on to the heads of all of these people and the neighbourhoods where many people are living.

This is quite shocking. And I have seen all the photos and videos and evidence myself.

The United Nations position is clear: We condemn strongly the rocket attacks. These must stop immediately.

We condemn the use of civilian sites – schools, hospitals and other civilian facilities - for military purposes.

No country would accept rockets raining down on its territory – and all countries and parties have an international obligation to protect civilians."

Lawfare, the abuse of international norms and procedures and the judicialisation of international institutions to attain strategic goals that cannot be achieved by political and military means, has become a common feature in modern conflicts. It has evolved into a new weapon in the hands of our enemies seeking to constrain and limit the ability of Western armies to pursue our national security interests.

The High Level Military Group (HLMG) was formed in early 2015 with a mandate to address the implications for Western warfare of fighting enemies who disregard the Law of Armed Conflict (LOAC) but exploit our own nations' adherence to LOAC for their gain.
HLMG members discussing the 2014 Gaza Conflict with an IDF soldier on a field visit in southern Israel

HLMG members have a wealth of experience at the very highest operational and policy levels as regards the conduct of warfare and its attendant policies.

Our purpose is to add a professional military and legal element to debates about warfare in the 21st Century, which at times have been ill-informed and politicised, and which are of vital importance to our own armies and alliance partners.

Our work will cover an initial assessment of the 2014 Gaza Conflict, a comparative study examining the conduct of operations by democratic militaries against non-state enemies who do not abide by LOAC, and a final report setting out the challenges and policy prescriptions for the current era of warfare.

The months-long investigation into the war by the High Level Military Group (HLMG), made up of retired generals and defense officials from nine countries, concluded that Israel not only abided by the laws of armed conflict, but far surpassed their requirements.

Israel's "knock on the roof" technique, telephone calls and leaflets dropped warning non-combatants to leave the area of impending attacks and missions canceled due to possible civilian casualties represented a far higher level of restraint than other Western armies, the report concluded.

The IDF standard, explained one HLMG author, Richard Kemp (former commander of British forces in Afghanistan),
would be "a hindrance to Western military expediency".

The report also concluded that much Western media commentary on the 2014 war included "stark, unwarranted condemnations of the IDF's conduct that do not accord with our own examination".

HLMG blamed the "vast majority of civilian casualties" on Hamas, who "instituted a deliberate policy to cause as many Palestinian civilian deaths as possible in order to wage a PR war against Israel." Such policies, largely ignored by the British media, included the systematic use of human shields "to avert strikes on its military infrastructure embedded in urban Gaza"

We've been here before - the Israeli have now established the practice of enquiring into their own war crimes and finding themselves not guilty, as they did over their role in the Sabra/Shatila massacre - the independent Redmond Enquiry find them guilty of engineering a massacre of 3,500 refugees, their own Kahan absolves them.

'Friends of Israel' commission random military men who absolve Israel.

"The HLMG had unprecedented access to Israel's decision makers, from the Prime Minister and Defence Minister, through the military top-level leadership to individual unit commanders and soldiers as well as civilians affected by the fighting."
Read this report through – with all its implications.
All those examples of who was interviewed are Israeli's - no Palestinian victims – not at all (it would be virtually impossible to interview the many thousands made homeless who actually bore the brunt of Israeli terrorism), this report is based entirely on interviews with Israeli military and politicians.
No human rights observers, no medical staff, no press representatives – these are the people an honest enquiry goes to for information, not just those who carried out the atrocities that w all saw the result of on our televisions eighteen months ago – the claims in this report are not in any way in any way by the press and media reports we were getting daily, which is a good reason for them not being included.
Where's the evidence from 'Medecins Sans Frontieres' who had the job of treating the wounded, or the ambulance drivers who carried off the 2,104 Palestinian dead, including 1,462 civilians - 344 children And 110 women.? An Israeli government official told the BBC that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) had killed 1,000 "terrorists" during the assault on Gaza – mostly civilians and nearly half women and children, it would appear – the ****** figures don't even add up and no evidence of talking to one single witness other than Israelis https://www.hrw.org/news/2014/09/11/israel-depth-look-gaza-school-attacks
What the hell else are the Israeli's going to say - "we didn't do it Guv"
Such enquiries can take years to put together – the one being carried out by the U.N. started a year ago – this one is a hastily prepared whitewash in defence of Israel from their own description – this took two visits to Israel.
This, from the report
"Between June and August 2015 HLMG members and staff undertook two extensive fact-finding trips and four additional research trips to assess every aspect of Israel's conduct in the 2014 Gaza Conflict."
Two ******* "fact-finding trips to explain the deaths of 1,462 civilians - 344 children And 110 women?, is that all those lives were worth, for crying out loud – that is no way to get at the truth – you could have scribbled something more comprehensive on a beer mat??? That is downright insulting, to the dead and to our intelligence!!!
This is little more than evidence hastily gathered by a defending council on behalf of their employers, "The Friends of Israel" – a show-trial in the real meaning of the term.
Jim Carroll

By the way – this is from the foreword of this "independent report, which doesn't even pretend to be independent – it is actually a statement from "The Friends of Israel – not a report.
"No case demonstrates the possibilities for perversion of our current legal system by an adversary better than military operations involving Israel. No matter how effective and lawful the Israel Defense Forces' (IDF) conduct, there is always a barrage of allegations against it. Concepts like "crimes against humanity", "genocide", and accusations in bodies like the UN and the International Criminal Court, are widely and readily used for the purposes of gaining political advantage. The Friends of Israel Initiative (FoII) was founded to defend Israel against delegitimisation campaigns not because we felt a moral obligation or a historical debt to Israel as the State of the Jewish people. Rather, we seek to defend the existence of the State of Israel because in doing so we are defending ourselves and the security and prosperity of the Western world, of which Israel is an integral part"
And this:
This report forms an assessment of Israel's conduct during the 2014 Gaza Conflict, based on an extensive fact-finding visit to Israel of the High Level Military Group (HLMG) in early June 2015 and several follow-up visits by individual HLMG delegates and staff.
TO ISRAEL – WHAT ABOUT A FACT-FINDING VISIT TO GAZA, WHERE THE DAMAGE WAS DONE AND THE MASSACRES TOOK PLACE
This "report is an insult!!!
All they've done is interview the Israelis who told them, "we didn't do it" – that is the substance of the report – which puts the Kahan report on Sabra/Shatila into context perfectly.

What?
Of course they did, they told them what they wanted them to know
Where is there any indication that they checked what they had been told by the Israelis - at the record speed the report was produced, they would not have had time.
This was a report on a war - where are the statements from the other side - or the observers - or the medical staff - or the press - or anybody else other than the Israelis - .
Are you really suggesting that you can produce a fair report by only interviewing one side of the conflict.
The press reports, from Britain, America, from Israel (Haaretz) contradict the report absolutely - you've been given a small number of them - many, many more waiting in the wings, from all over the world.
Where is the explanation of the commander telling the occupants of a medical home after he had told them to stay in the building - widely reported in the press, not even mentioned?
Or the report from Israeli soldiers describing some of their men picking off survivors struggling over the rubble of their homes - not even mentioned, never mind denied?
Or the press reports of Israeli troops launching rockets from yards of occupied schools, or the flechette anti-personnel missiles in built-up areas, or the destruction of homes with families inside... or the hundreds of eye-witness reports of other incidents - not mentioned, not denied, certainly not disproved -NOTHING.
The U.N. has taken a year of deliberation on a report of these events so far and there is still no sign of it coming out - this **** report was 'investigated, written up, printed and distributed in a matter of weeks.
One fundamental rule of any report such as this is you don't associate yourself with one side or the other and you gather your information from the protagonists of both sides and as many neutral and reliable observers as you can find NOTHING - NOT ONE WORD FROM ANYBODY OTHER THAN THE ISRAELI MILITARY AND POLITICIANS - AND ALL CARRIED OUT FASTER THAN YOU CAN READ AN O HENRY SHORT STORY (usually about three pages long)
It is not only a whitewash, it is downright shoddy a#d insulting to the intelligence - they time they took, the witnesses they spoke to or in this case, didn't speak to), the trouble they took getting both sides of the story (by their own admission, " an extensive fact-finding visit to Israel of the High Level Military Group (HLMG) in early June 2015 and several follow-up visits by individual HLMG delegates and staff." ONE TEAM VISIT TO EXAMINE A WAR THAT LASTED - HOW LONG????

I support no terrorism, and regard the civilian deaths in Gaza as unjustifiable.
The problem is not with international law, which was devised by the Red Cross and accepted by the governments of the world.
It is not with those countries that abide by the law, as Israel does but with those who flout it.

Hamas flouted the law with its indiscriminate attacks on civilians.
As Ki-Moon said, Israel had no choice but to strike back.
Hamas also flouted the law by operating from among its civilians so that civilians were inevitably harmed in the inevitable counter strike.

I have never called anyone a "moron," but have often been called one by you Jim.
"Know nothing" referred to the fact that some people attacked my knowledge of WW1 history without having read any history about it themselves. That is as personal as I get.

The report is not "risible."
Whoever commissioned it, it is the findings of military experts fropm many countries who have worked within the constraints of the Law Of Armed Conflict for all their careers.

Those responsible for the deaths are those who hid among the civilian population while carrying out war crimes against Israeli civilians.

Re. Terrorism, Again (Israel)

Meet Morad Bader Abdullah Adais the 16 year old Palestinian murderer who stabbed an Israeli mother of 6 to death -- in front of her children. He has been apprehended by Israeli police. Notice he's still alive, unharmed, without a scratch on him. In fact, it looks like he's chillin' without a care in the world. His father is quoted in the Palestinian press as being, "very proud" of his son.

This boy is being hailed by Palestinian leaders and much of the community. He may even get a street named after him in Ramallah somewhere. There is no difference between this mentality and that of ISIS.

So, when you hear the media describe what's happening between Israelis and Palestinians as a "conflict"; or hear dishonest politicians call for "calm on both sides", please understand that there is one side that wants peace - Israel. Let this picture of a brutal murderer in custody (and not dead) serve as a reminder.

When all these have had holes shot in them and your arguments had been destroyed you resort to throwing out baseless allegations.

Carry on whinging Jom, but in 1948 it was Egypt and Jordan who invaded and stole "Palestinian land" (Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem). Now did either the Egyptians and the Jordanians "give that land to the Arabs of Palestine in 1948? Did they heck as like - what they did do was imprison self same Palestinian Arabs in refugee camps, ensure that they lived their lives in poverty because that is what suited the pan-Arabic cause.

I just explained why it was not. It was a factual description of their absence of any knowledge of recent (twenty years!) work on WW1 history.

Jim,
The International Criminal Court is in the process of investigating whether Israel should stand trial for War Crimes

Is it?
Everyone knows what IDF strategy was, so what is there to investigate?
In war there are always war crimes committed at unit and sub unit level, and that may be the investigation, and I hope any culprits are punished.

International law is there to minimise civilian suffering.
There is no question that Hamas flouted that law. You can see missiles and mortars being fired indiscriminately at civilians, from civilian occupied areas.

But for those war crimes there would be no civilian deaths in Gaza.
Why do they have to attack Israeli civilians at all? That is the cause of all this suffering.

Don't be stupis Keith, if you think the death of 1,462 civilians - 344 children And 110 women doesn't need investigation and can be settled by asking the IDF why they did it, you are beyond help.
'The Friends of Israel' relised it needed investigation; that's why they commissioned an enquiry and mocked-up a report absolving Israel.
The U.S. have always realised that Israel has been breaking International Laws in their treatment of Arabs - that's why they have been forced to use their veto so many times to protect them from prosecution
Obama was so appalled at what happened in Gaza that he threatened to withdraw the protection of the American veto.
Israel realises that their actions breached international laws - that's why they have attempted to get the International Criminal Court closed.
We all know that an enquiry is necessary - we saw it on our televisions and read it in our newspaper daily throughout the period that the slaughter and destruction was taking place.
Since the Friends of Israel whitewash came up I've been poking around some past evens.
Th Kahan investigation held by Israel to absolve itself in a similar fashion - no evidence of proper research - just politicians and soldiers explaining why they allowed the massacre to happen.
Similarly, the Jenin massacre that wasn't- based mainly on the statement of an American military man who declared it wasn't a massacre.
Israel has powerful political allies who have spent much time and effort keeping them from being prosecuted for war crimes and atrocities.
Hopefully, this was a far too public display of international criminality to get them off the hook on this occasion.

Similarly, the Jenin massacre that wasn't- based mainly on the statement of an American military man who declared it wasn't a massacre.

That dishonesty merits a dedicated post Jim.

The UN report to the Secretary General noted "Palestinians had claimed that between 400 and 500 people had been killed, fighters and civilians together. They had also claimed a number of summary executions and the transfer of corpses to an unknown place outside the city of Jenin. The number of Palestinian fatalities, on the basis of bodies recovered to date, in Jenin and the refugee camp in this military operation can be estimated at around 55."[79] While noting the number of civilian deaths might rise as rubble was cleared, the report continued, "nevertheless, the most recent estimates by UNRWA and ICRC show that the number of missing people is constantly declining as the IDF releases Palestinians from detention."[4] Human Rights Watch completed its report on Jenin in early May, stating "there was no massacre," but accusing the IDF of war crimes,[80] and Amnesty International's report concluded "No matter whose figures one accepts, "there was no massacre."[1] Amnesty's report specifically observed that "after the IDF temporarily withdrew from Jenin refugee camp on April 17, UNRWA set up teams to use the census lists to account for all the Palestinians (some 14,000) believed to be resident of the camp on April 3, 2002. Within five weeks all but one of the residents was accounted for."[81] A BBC report later noted, "Palestinian authorities made unsubstantiated claims of a wide-scale massacre,"[15] and a reporter for The Observer opined that what happened in Jenin was not a massacre

Doesn't make any difference Keith - all combatants exaggerate their figures.
An Israeli spokesman during the Gaza massacres claimed to have killed 1000 "terrorist" - work it out for yourself.
What the Observer "opined" is immaterial - the number of people slaughtered by 1000 heavily armed Israeli teoop at Jenin constituted a massacre to ordinary human beings.
It has become fashionable to refer to all opposition to Israeli terrorism as "terrorism".
Whatever we may personally think of Hamas, they are the only ones standing between the Palestinian people being ethnically cleansedd and slaughters and their persecutors.   
Counties with a record of war criminality themselves, like the U.S. have made sure that the Palestinians have no outside support from politicians in 'The Free West'.

Having read through the contributions to this thread looking at references both veiled, oblique and direct to WW1 there appeared to be a great deal of wittering on about "land theft" by Jom the infallible and in support of this Jom was awfully keen on people looking at maps. Now Jom wasn't all that keen on maps in the past especially when asked to produce maps from either the Palestine Authority/Hamas/Fatah/Islamic Jihad/The Muslim Brotherhood/Hezbollah showing the boundaries and borders of this "Two State" solution they say that they are fighting for. Jom has a bit of trouble producing such a map you see as no such map exists, as NONE of those "organisations" have any desire at all to embrace even the remotest possibility of a "Two State" solution, they didn't in 1937, they didn't in 1947 - no doubt Jom can come out with some highly implausible reason for that that has nothing to do with statements about "driving the Jews into the sea" and "wiping Israel off the map".

""Two State" solution"
The Arabs have proposed a solution based on returning to the 1967 borders - that is not acceptable to Israel - simple as that.
The constant factor in this conflict has been the ongoing seizure of Palestinian land backed by military force.
U.N. report
Until the disputed territories become undisputed, there can be no solution.
The Palestinians would have to be out of their minds to accept anything less, there are already 6.5 million Palestinian refugees in the world today without adding to them.
I "witter on" about land theft because the stealing of Palestinian land is now an increasing act by expansionist Israel.
The reality of expansionism
The reality again
Israel has refused to set borders because, it claims, the Palestinians would not accept any borders - the truth is, that they will not accept borders the Israelis insist on.
Israel's demands
Sort of like a burglar saying "we won't give you back what we've nicked, but if you agree not to make trouble we won't come back".

The current wave of terrorism is not about a lack of jobs, a poor economy, or any of the other excuses we've heard. Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh declared just Tuesday that the motive behind the current wave of violence is "jihad."

"This intifada is not the result of despair. This intifada is a jihad, a holy war fought by the Palestinian people against the Zionist occupation. Only a holy war will drive the occupier out of Palestine," Haniyeh said.

Your quote comes from pro-Israeli newspaper, Israel Hayom (history below
Israel Hayom was launched on 30 July 2007 by American casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. At that time, the newspaper competed directly with Israeli, another free daily previously co-run by Adelson. The same year, Maariv editor Dan Margalit left the newspaper to write for Israel Hayom. A weekend edition was launched in October 2009. In 2014, it was believed that Adelson invested in total at least $50 million in Israel Hayom."
The speaker quoted is Ismail Haniyeh, a politician who is not, as described in the article "a political leader", but has been dismissed from his post and has been denied re-entry into Gaza - his views are nobody's but his own

"Nothing was put up to contradict my claims.

Yeah Keith - you've told us this a hundred times - nobody believes you.
All "ignormous Muppet" eh - ah well.
I really don't know enough about the enquiry into Jenin to contradict anybody, - I know there were reports of Israelis bulldozing homes with families still in them.
My point was, and remains, that the recent fiasco of a report on Gaza has called into question how all of these reports are carried out.
The Arab claim is that Israel had the right to select who served and who didn't on the enquiry team.
That was certainly the case in Gaza, where only Israeli politicians and military men were interviewed.
It was also the case in Sabra/Shatila when the Israelis own Kahan report was totally contradicted by the Redmond Report, which found that Israel was guilty of war crimes.
Israel does not favour independent enquiries to the extent that it wants the International Criminal Court closed down, which would mean, of course, there would be no way of bringing Isis to justice - it is putting its own self-interest before that of the rest of the world.
Whenever the Arab report was written, Israel's behavior has borne out the accusations made.
Israel is a terrorist state with U.S. backing that is beginning to crumble.
You have never once responded to any Human Rights accusation,(not your thing- human rights)
All of them without exception condemn Israel - you prefer to believe the politicians - there's a word for that you know

Doesn't make any difference that, with its record of terrorism and rigging its enquiries Israel is not to be trusted - we saw Israel's terrorist activities and yet iy#t declared itself not guilty on the grunds of a rigged enquiry - never again
"The Redmond Enquiry found Israel guilty either "directly or indirectly" of the Sabra/Shatila massacre - guilty as that"
Hate to be the bearer of bad news but whatever way you read it - that's guilty one way or another.
Israel facilitated the massacre - it provided transport for the killers, opened the gates for them and left them at it for three days - it even provided illumination so they could continue their slaughter through the night.
When the slaughter was over they drove the killers away, provided bulldozers to conceal the dead and eventually built a stadium over the mass graves.
Eye witnesses swore that soldiers stood by while the killing was taking place and refused to help.
Every bit of this was covered by the Redmond enquiry and/or eye-witness statements (including from Israeli soldiers on the ground - the experiences of one of them was made into a film. It was established beyond doubt - the only bit Redmond didn't establish was Israel's possible hands-on involvement and that's far from unreasonable given their record of slaughter
To add icing to the cake, the man held as being overall responsible was made Prime Minister - talk about rubbing the world's nose in it - you'd think they believed they had God on their side - oh, some of them do, don't they?
Now, which part of that is "not guilty"?

For crying out loud Keith Nurse Seigal was there for the duration of the massacre; far from seeing only "a small heap of bodies" she and her fellow medical staff treated them as they were brought in, talked to them, viewed the events from the top of the hospital (illuminated by Israeli flares throughout the three nights), were herded through the streets through the piles of bodies by the killers, expecting to meet with the fate of the victims (included in her testimony), witnssed the bulldozers brought in to dig the mass graves and finally, corresponded with an Israeli soldier she had seen from the top of the hospital.
Her experiences were thought important enough for her to have been interviewed by the Kahan Whitewash Committee.
What kind of a creature are you to go to such lengths to distort the account of an eye-witness in order to defend this massacre?
You included Nurse Seigal in your list of "liars" - whatever happened in Jenin has nothing to do with this massacre.

"It is a tractic you should at least be aware of instead of swallowing every story without question."

"No. It is Israel's side of the story."

In the past they have relied on the U.S. to keep them from bing tried - after Gaza, Obama has told them they could not rely on America's support (one of your "respectable democracies")
"Redmond did not show them to have been "directly responsible" leaving it open."
Redmond did not "leave it open" - he said they were guilty of one or the other - since the events it has been shown they were possibly guilty of both - ye witnesses (whoops "liars") have placed them actually at the scene.

Nurse Siegel said this.

"The section on Direct Responsibility also refers to us. It reads,

"When the group of doctors and nurses met IDF officers, they made no complaint that a massacre had been perpetrated in the camps. When asked why they had not informed the IDF officers about the massacre, they replied they had not known about it. The fact that the doctors and nurses who were in the Gaza Hospital -- which is proximate to the site of the event and where persons wounded arrived -- did not know about the massacre but only about isolated instances of injury, also shows that those who were nearby but not actually inside the camps (a reference to the IDF) did not form the impression that a massacre of hundreds of people was taking place."

I do not call Nurse Siegel a liar.
She saw no-one massacred or buried.
She saw bodies beside the road. Some were old men but no women or children. Ne evidence of a massacre. There had been fighting in the camp.
Here is her testimony.

"The Redmond Enquiry found Israel guilty either "directly or indirectly" of the Sabra/Shatila massacre" possibly be described as "leaving it open"?

It leaves it open as directly or indirectly responsible.
It does not state that they were directly responsible, and Israel accepts indirect responsibility.

"She saw no-one massacred or buried."
No-one actually say the massacre - she and her colleagues heard it and she treated victims who told than what was going on.
On the basis of eye witness accounts from both victims and Israeli soldiers who were there, the Redmond enquiry found Israel "either "directly or indirectly" of the Sabra/Shatila massacre"
"Ne evidence of a massacre. There had been Ne evidence of a massacre. There had been fighting in the camp

You are now implying that there was no massacere but the deaths were due to "Ne evidence of a massacre. There had been fighting in the camp"

The McBride enquiry is now only on Jstor, a subscribers only site, as far as I can make out – a couple of years ago it was freely on-line.
In 1983, a commission chaired by Seán MacBride, the assistant to the UN Secretary General and President of United Nations General Assembly at the time, concluded thatIsrael, as the camp's occupying power, bore responsibility for the violence.[19] The commission also concluded that the massacre was a form of genocide

No I do not. I admire her for her work and her honesty.

She and others from her hospital told the Kahan Enquiry that they did not know there had been a massacre.
They heard nothing to suggest one.
The refugees who sought refuge in the hospital BEFORE the massacre expressed fears of what the Phalange would do to them because Palestinians had recently committed atrocities and massacres in their villages. (No international outcry over murdered Christians of course.)

Date: 23 Jan 16 - 04:20 AM

Enough of this Keith
These are the facts as I know them – I've become tired of your unqualified claims; if you have any evidence that they aren't correct, produce it
The Israelis suspected that Sabra/Shatila was full of weapons and fighters "The Israelis maintained that 2,000 to 3,000 "terrorists" remained in the camps, following Israeli guidance on how to enter it. The forces were mostly Phalangist, though there were some men from Saad Haddad's "Free Lebanon forces""- Wiki

Despite Israeli claims, neither weapons nor fighters were found, in fact the killers met with no armed resistance whatever from the refugees.
Knowing the bad blood between the Christian militia, 1,500 militiamen assembled at Beirut International Airport, then occupied by Israel. Under the command of Elie Hobeika, they began moving towards the area in IDF-supplied jeeps, some bearing weapons provided by Israel, (above link).
The Israelis drove the militiamen to the camp, opened the gates for them, and set up a base within range– they had previously fired shells into the camps.
"During that period, Israeli units were sporadically firing artillery rounds into the Sabra and Shatila camps, although no fire was being returned because the last PLO defenders had been evacuated two weeks earlier, and any arms larger than handguns had been collected at that time.
At noon Thursday, Sept. 16, a delegation of five old men bearing white flags tried to negotiate an end to the shelling of the two camps by the Israeli forces, which had now surrounded the camps and sealed the exits. Four of the Palestinian negotiators were killed. At 5 p.m. the first 150 Phalangist militiamen entered the camps and at 5:30 Israeli forces began firing flares over them to illuminate the narrow, twisting alleys, where massacres had already begun in one area only 100 yards from the nearest Israeli observation post. At this point mobs of Palestinian women began rushing to nearby camp exits, seeking to escape. Israeli tanks, stationed at 100- or 200-yard intervals and blocking all exits, turned back everyone. Israeli officers have testified that it was about this time that they first heard the order to kill the women and children, as well as the men, relayed over a walkie-talkie by militia commander Elie Hobeika, from the command post he shared with the Israelis. Israeli units continued firing illumination flares over the camps, a pattern they maintained throughout Thursday and Friday nights.
Starting Thursday evening, horribly wounded victims began pouring into two hospitals in the camps, and the airwaves were full of commands revealing what was going on inside, and queries from Israeli officers and enlisted men, who could not believe that their commanders realized that whole families were being slaughtered in front of their eyes. When two Israeli officers stationed in adjacent tanks began discussing with each other the executions of children they were watching, the voice of General Amos Yaron, commander of Israeli forces in Beirut, came on the air to warn them against such talk on the military radio."
WASHINGTON REPORT

The Phalangists slaughtered up to 3,500 of the occupants, raping the women then cutting their throats – corpses of pregnant women who had been disembowelled and their dead children ripped out were found throughout the area.
The Israelis provided illumination so the slaughter could be carried out throughout the night.
At the end of three days, the Israelis ordered the Falagists to stop and began to hide the evidence of the massacre with bulldozers.

"By Friday morning Israeli army bulldozers had arrived. While the Phalangist militiamen rested, corpses were bulldozed into a mass grave and Israeli soldiers sent food and water across the barricades to the militiamen. Word of what was going on spread rapidly throughout Beirut. Ze'ev Schiff, military correspondent of the Israeli daily Ha'aretz, began telephoning Israeli officials, including Minister of Communications Mordechai Zippori. Zippori telephoned then Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir."
(Report from Washington link)

The Falangists were driven away – none were ever arrested or charged.
Jewish American nurse, Ellen Seigal, was present throughout the three days, treating the wounded, she was a loyal support of The State of Israel and gave evidence to the Kahan Enquiry.
Since the massacre she has dedicated her life to telling the world what happened over those three day.
HEROES OF SABRA SHATILA

Israel facilitated the massacre, they helped arm the killers, they illuminated the slaugher, they prevented the victims from escaping and survivors claim Israeli soldiers were seen in the camp while the killing was taking place:
"The Israel Defense Forces surrounded the Palestinian refugee camps, controlled access to them, and facilitated the massacre by firing illuminating flares over the camps.[5][6] In 1982, an independent commission chaired by Sean MacBride concluded that the Israeli authorities or forces were, directly or indirectly, responsible.[7] The Israeli government established the Kahan Commission to investigate, and in early 1983 it found that Israeli military personnel were aware that a massacre was in progress without taking serious steps to stop it. Therefore it regarded Israel as having indirect responsibility. The commission held Ariel Sharon personally responsible for having disregarded the prospect of acts of bloodshed by the Phalangists against the population of the refugee camps and not preventing their entry.[8] METAPEDIA

That is how I understand the events – if you have any evidence that this did not happen, produce it Keith – your one man campaign to rewrite history is sickening

Jim Carroll

HonestReporting (also Honest Reporting or honestreporting.com) is a pro-Israel,[1][2] non-governmental organization that monitors the media for what it perceives as bias against Israel.[3] The organization has affiliates in the United States, UK, Canada, Italy, and Brazil.
Criticism[edit]
The American Journalism Review described the organisation as a "pro-Israeli pressure group".[6]

After being criticized by HonestReporting for articles published by The Independent, author Robert Fisk wrote in the Independent that some of their readers sent him hate-mail.[7]

Following a 2004 article published in the British Medical Journal which criticised Israel for a high level of Palestinian civilian casualties and claimed that the pattern of injuries suggested routine targeting of children in situations of minimal or no threat, the journal received over 500 responses to its website and nearly 1,000 sent directly to its editor. In an analysis of the responses published in the journal, Karl Sabbagh concluded that the correspondence was orchestrated by Honest Reporting and aimed at silencing legitimate criticism of Israel. In his analysis Sabbagh pointed to evidence that that the correspondents had not read the article. Sabbagh also documented a significant proportion of offensive, abusive and racist insults among the correspondence. An editorial by the BMJ referred to the campaign as bullying and said that the best way to counter such behaviour was to expose it to public scrutiny.[8][9] Daniel Finkelstein, associate editor of The Times, responded that Sabbagh's piece was "anti-Israel propaganda" that did not meet even "basic academic standards" of scientific analysis.[10]

"Did Jon Stone write those excerpts cited?"
For a start, I saw no excerpts - only unsubstantiated one-line quotes, but let's look at a couple.

"Last year Richard Falk, United Nations special rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories accused the Israeli government of "ethnic cleansing" by trying to replace Arab Palestinian populations in its territory with Jewish Israelis."
This is a long standing accusation coming from both outside and inside Israel – I believe it to be true, based on Israel's long-term behaviour towards the Arabs – I think you yourself have said on numerous occasions that the Arabs have no right to their homeland because they've only been there (for how long?)and should go and live among their own people.
What on earth is that if it isn't "ethnic cleansing"?

Israeli settlers have also been accused of violence against the existing inhabitants of the land they build on.
So.....?
Chemical sprays and high pressure hoses have been used with boring regularity to get farmers to leave their land – not just by the settlers, but by the army as well.
Some time ago I put up a film of an Arab family being manhandled out of their home because a bunch of settlers fancied it.
The British left to the sound of hand-grenades being tossed into occupied houses by Israeli "freedom fighters" – go read Benny Morris and Einstein's and the list of Jewish intellectuals' letter – a matter of history.
If it wasn't actual violence, it was threatened violence backed by the forces of Laura Norder.

Dealt with two - can't be arsed with the others - though a quick glance in the Independent article Stone draws from gives an interestingbit he left out "The UK government, also an ally of Israel, criticised the move and reiterated that the settlements were illegal under international law.

"The UK condemns the Government of Israel's decision of 30 January to publish new tenders for 450 settlement units in the West Bank of the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The UK's position on Israeli settlements is clear: they are illegal under international law," Conservative Middle East minister Tobias Ellwood said in a statement.
"We urge the Government of Israel to reverse this decision. It is important to focus on steps that are conducive to peace.""

Human Rights Concerns
Amnesty International's concerns are based on international standards and applied equally within the proper legal framework. The legal framework is defined by who retains jurisdiction, or effective control, over an area and the circumstances or situation at the time of the human rights violation. Amnesty's concerns within Israel-proper, the area inside the 1949 (W. Bank/E. Jerusalem) and 1951 (Gaza Strip) armistice lines (also called the '1967 borders') include but are not limited to, ill-treatment and torture of detainees, excessive use of force, the detention of conscientious objectors, and forced evictions and home demolitions within 'unrecognized' Bedouin villages.
The Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory (the West Bank including East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip) is in its fifth decade and the undercurrent of violence and inherent abuses of fundamental human rights and disregard for international law inherent in any long-standing military occupation is presented by both sides. Both Israeli and Palestinian civilians continue to bear the brunt of the violence in the region.
Human rights violations by Israeli forces in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) have included, but are not limited to, home demolitions and the forced eviction of Palestinian families; punitive arrests, unfair trials, ill-treatment and torture of detainees and the use of excessive or lethal force to subdue nonviolent demonstrations as well as the use of restrictive legal means. In contravention of international law, Israel continues to build parts of the wall/fence in the OPT, expand settlements and use draconian restrictions on the movement of Palestinians with some 600 roadblocks and checkpoints. Amnesty International is also concerned about discriminatory policies affecting access to water for Palestinians.
In areas under control of the Palestinian Authority, concerns include, but are not limited to, excessive use of force, arbitrary arrests, ill-treatment, torture and the use of administrative detention to jail individuals without charge or trial. Some detainees also do not receive adequate medical attention.
A ceasefire between Israeli forces and Palestinian armed groups in the Gaza Strip in effect since 2009 has been generally respected. The Gaza Strip has been under increasing restrictions since 2005, when Israel unilaterally pulled troops and settlers out of the strip. June 2007, restrictions tightened to an almost air-tight blockade, deepening the hardship there and virtually imprisoning the entire population of 1.6 million.
Israel maintains effective control over Gaza, controlling all but one of the crossings into the Gaza Strip, the airspace, territorial waters, telecommunications and the population registry which determines who is allowed to leave or enter Gaza. Therefore, Israel is still considered the occupying power and is responsible for the welfare of the inhabitants in the strip under international humanitarian law.
Israeli authorities rejected or delayed hundreds of permit applications to leave Gaza by Palestinians requiring specialist medical treatment; a few died as a result. Most of Gaza's inhabitants depend on international aid, which is severely hampered by the blockade. In May 2010, Israeli forces killed nine men aboard an aid flotilla in international waters that was challenging the blockade's legality.
Amnesty also has concerns about the indiscriminate rocket fire into southern Israel by armed Palestinian groups. Palestinian militants fired a rocket into Israel that hit a school bus, killing a 16 year old boy April 2011.
Following hostilities between Israel and the Gaza Strip Dec. 2008 - Jan. 2009, Hamas has failed to conduct any domestic investigation into the serious allegations of violations of international humanitarian and human rights law committed by their forces during the conflict and Israel's investigations have been inadequate - failing to meet international standards.
Political Situation

Prospects for a just and durable resolution to the conflict are remote despite the fact that the Palestine Liberation Organization recognized the State of Israel in 1988 and Israel allowed the Palestinian leadership to return to the Occupied Territories under the Oslo Accords in 1994. Israel continues to violate international law by expanding settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem and the Palestinian Authority appears to have given up on direct negotiations, planning to go directly to the United Nations to seek official recognition of the State of Palestine within the '1967 borders' against the wishes of the Israeli government.

"I said, "No decent democratic country holds Israel responsible for any atrocity or massacre."

What "stands" Keith is that you have been presented with the running order of the Sabra Shatila massacre and Israel's facilitating it - you have no answer other than to scurry behind you "real democratic countries" gambit.
Israel has been several massacres throughout its existence.
Respected Jewish Historian, Benny Morris (look him up, if you don't know him ('m sure Mike does) wrote that "Jewish forces were responsible for 24 massacres during the war.[1] Aryeh Yizthaki attests to 10 major massacres with more than 50 victims each.[6] Palestinian researcher Salman Abu-Sitta records 33, half of them occurring during the civil war period.[6] Saleh Abdel Jawad has listed 68 villages where acts of indiscriminate killing of prisoners, and civilians took place, where no threat was posed to Yishuv or Israeli soldiers.[7]"
Apart from these, there were the massacres carried out by Israeli Freedom fighters hurling grenades into occupied homes - massacres one and all.
The Israeli soldiers who were interviewed during the Six day war described the massacres of Arab prisoners of war, followed by the massacres of those selected to bury them - you claimed to have seen the programme, so you are fully aware of this.
Sabra/Shatila is down to Israel - don't need your "real democratic countries" - the facts (and your silence) speak for themselves.
Bombing occupied schools, hospitals, old peoples centres and occupied homes, as happened in 20114 constitute massacres - the fact that Israel is moving heaven and earth to not be tried for these massacres doesn't make them any less massacres.
I'm sure you'll put all these down to "Anti-Israeli lies - not a problem for the rest of us - we're well used to it.
Must go - Casualty starts soon - hope that doesn't turn out to be yet another massacre!!
G'night all!!

Unfortune#ately not - the Israelis would rather close down the international court than allow their actions to be examined.
"Six Day War. In all wars war crimes are committed at individual level."
And were buried by the authorities who actually suppressed the interviews - the perpetrators were treated as heroes
All atrocities are committed by individuals - these were sanctioned by the State.
"The facts are disputed. Governments have access to the facts behind the propaganda"
The facts are that the "facts" take second place to economic and political interests every time - judging these matters on the, non-action and silence of the State and politicians (not one of them has come out and openly defended Israel - they have simply said nothing on the individual examples of atrocities) is insane - we saw the result of the murder and destruction daily - if it
was justified we have a right to know on what grounds.

The truth is, I have become very tired of your claims of having read something you obviously haven't - you complain about postings being "too long" yet you claim you can work your way through some of the most complicated books I have ever read on subjects that interest me.
Time after time you have been given links you don't obviously read, yet claim you have.
I thought I'd put it to the test.
I invented a name for a report we'd discussed which you claim to be aware of - you used the name I gave you to claim that what the author had written didn't condemn the Israelis role in the massacre.
Point made, I think - you had not even read the links you were given to what Redmond(sic)MacBride said about the massacre, yet you continued to present a distorted account of it to make your case.
You claim that the massacres during the Six Day Waar were individual actions - how do you know?
THat was never stated on the programme - on the contrary - it was described as being carried out on the orders of officers who first instructed that the prisoners be shot, then that graves should be dug by remaining prisoners, than that those who dug the graves should be shot - nothing "individual" about soldiers being ordered to shoot prisoners.
You'd really would find life much easier if you didn't keep making things up.
"but none do against massacres and atrocities because there are none."
You've just been given a list off them from the writings of one of the foremost Israeli historians - was he making them up?
You seemed to backed away from Sabra/Shatila - doesn't that count as a massacre
WE saw what happened in 2014 - all imagined?
You have never responded to the fact that Israel is prepared to destroy the International Criminal Court in order not to appear before it.
You seem to adopt the attitude that the only unbiased people on the planet are those politicians who support Israel - a bit of a contradiction in terms, doncha think?
Do you really believe that The united Nations and all the Human Rights Groups are not to be trusted and the only ones to believe are politicians - it would be superb to be able to add this to your list of profound statements

Israel complied with international law.

Keith - I have indeed made the mistake in the past, on several occasions - which I why I deliberately chose the this time.
Throughout this thread I have carefully check every single statement I made to give you people no reason to trip me upon errors - the MacBride report was no different - I checked and rechecked what the report said and was fully aware who produced it - I've actually compiled a list of all the statements I've used in the Sabra/Shatila arguments for future use.
I deliberately overused it on this thread (14 times) before I corrected it - (worked like a charm - couldn't have hoped for a better result) - you responded to it "authoritatively" on 5 occasions.
Had it been a mistake it wouldn't have been a problem saying so - I've never seen the point in denying mistakes in a discussion, certainly none as trivial as this - unlike you, who yet to admit to one.
I asked a question - Do you really believe that The united Nations and all the Human Rights Groups are not to be trusted and the only ones to believe are politicians
"Because I saw the same programme you did and have kept it for reference."
Can you give us the exact statement - the programme is still on line?
"Others dispute them"
Disputes Benny Morris - now that is interesting - can you link us to them please?
"Of course it was. It was committed by a local Arab militia."
And was facilitated by the Israeli army - you heaven't even bothered to respond too the facts of the massacre - perhaps you might care to do so now
"Of course it happened, but the war crimes were committed by Hamas.Israel complied with international law."
Do you have a hot-line to the U.N. - their enquiry is still underway, no announcement has ever been made and Israel is still struggling to keep it out of the Court - how on earth do you know when the rest of the world has no idea?
"Massacres and atrocities are just propaganda"

From Haaretz:

"A Palestinian teen suspected of stabbing Dafna Meir to death in the settlement of Otniel last week was moved to carry out the attack by incitement on Palestinian television, the Shin Bet said Sunday.

According to the Shin Bet, the 15-year-old, a resident of the village of Beit Amra in the south Hebron Hills, was exposed to televised content which presented Israel as "the killer of Palestinian youngsters."

On the day of the attack, influenced by these messages, the teen decided to kill an Israeli Jew, said the Shin Bet. "The severe consequences of the attack show once more the seriousness of the threat posed by the Palestinian media's wild incitement against the State of Israel and Jews., which influences lone-wolf attackers to commit murder and carry out serious terror attacks," said the Shin Bet."

sraeli forces have killed 65 Palestinians this month, including 14 children

Of course he fails to mention that these terrorists were killed while in the act of killing or trying to kill Jews, a minor detail to him and others biased against Jews as the media has been doing in scores of misleading reports. This is one example, there are many, many more:

Two Israeli men were fatally stabbed in Jerusalem's Old City on Saturday evening. The Palestinian attacker was shot dead by security forces after he opened fire on them. The wife of one of the victims and their two-year-old baby were lightly wounded.

How did the BBC initially report on the attack?


Palestinian shot dead after Jerusalem attack kills two

Notice how the main focus of the headline is the death of the Palestinian perpetrator who is "shot dead," effectively turning the terrorist into the victim.

And what is a "Jerusalem attack?" Cities don't attack people. In this case, the BBC cannot bring itself to apportion responsibility to a Palestinian. Nor does it state that the actual victims of the attack were Israeli Jews.

Disturbing, yes. Surprising, no. The BBC has a history of publishing headlines where Palestinian terrorists are sanitized to the point that inanimate objects such as bulldozers are held responsible for killing Israelis.

While the headline was eventually changed, presumably as a result of outrage on social media, it is appalling that such an initial response could have been published at all.

Jim, put your "facts" up one at a time unless you are afraid of seeing them knocked down one at a time.

You want to address the Six Day War, Sabra/Shatilla and Gaza conflicts in one post!
Each is worthy of a dedicated thread and each has had several already!!

"No, but no decent democratic government would ignore massacres and atrocities."
That#s what I said - politicians - what else are govvrnments made up of - rabbits???


They criticise settlements because that is a real issue.
They acknowledge no atrocities or massacres because there have been none.

Have the confidence in your claims to make one at a time.
What are you afraid of Jim?
Looking silly when each one is demolished?
Pathetic.

Put it up and let me respond if you you think it will stand.

"Jim, put your "facts" up one at a time unless you are afraid of seeing them knocked down one at a time."
You've had the facts - treat them as you like or don't - your choice - I've had what I want from you - anything further would be an icing on the cake, but I'm really not into sweet things too much.
Fact:
Israel has a history of massacres dating to the beginning - Benny Morris, leading Israeli historian lists 24 of them, others give more.
Yo claim he is disputed, but you refuse to tell us by whom, so we can only assume by you.
Massacres took place in the fifites, sixties seventies, 80s,,, in fact, up to the present day
Example)
"The Cave of the Patriarchs massacre, also known as the Ibrahimi Mosque massacre or Hebron massacre,[1] was a shooting massacre carried out by American-Israeli Baruch Goldstein, also a member of the far-right Israeli Kach movement. On February 25, 1994, Goldstein opened fire on a large number of Palestinian Muslims who had gathered to pray inside the Ibrahimi Mosque (also Mosque of Abraham), at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron, West Bank. It took place on February 25, 1994, during the overlapping religious holidays of both Jewish Purim and Muslim Ramadan.[2][3] The attack left 29 people dead and 125 wounded.[4] Goldstein was only stopped after he was overpowered and beaten to death by survivors."
Wiki

Prisoners of war were shot py order of the officers during the Six Day War - you alone dispute thei, but refuse to point out why - though you claim to have seen the film

Sabra/Shatila facilitated by Israel - done and dusted
You refuse to defend your argument - the ones that have beren put up stand.

You claim Israel was not responsible for what happened in 2014 though no enquiry (other than the rigged one by Friends of Israel) has taken place and Israel is fighting to ascertain none takes place - you refuse to justify this.
We know how many people, including women and children - Isarel killed - we know how mnay hospitals, schools and public clinics and care homes were destroyed, we don;t know how many homes were destroyed because there were too many to count, certainly many thousands, we know that many of the homes, hospitals and other buildings were occupied (in one case, by order of the Israelis).... all this is common knowledge, yet Isreal refuses to stand trial and you continue to deny it.
Your overall claim is Israel did none of tehse things because they said so
You say the eye witnesses, human rights workers, medical workers, press, and other neutral observers' words are not to be trusted and instead, we should trust the fact that countries continue to do business with them (that lets Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, China, Russia, Syria...... and all the other human rights abusers and mass murderers off the hook).
As I said, I've got what I came for - you have shamelessly humiliated yourself again.
If you feel like answering any of these feel free - I realy do look forward to it.
Everything I claim has been backed by masses of evidence - all you have to offer is 'Israel says they didn't do it' and 'trust the politicians' - yheah, right!!
"Of course he fails to mention that these terrorists were killed while in the act of killing or trying to kill Jews"
No they were't, or if they were, nobody has ever claimed that they were Brucie

Ah yes Israel - fifties, sixties, seventies, eighties

Would that be the same Israel that the pan-Arabic nations swore to wipe out, to exterminate, to drive all the Jews into the sea (All those promises enshrined and carved in stone in the Hamas Charter)

How many times during the forties, fifties, sixties, seventies, eighties ...... in fact, up to the present day have the Arabs chosen war over peace? How many times have they attacked Israel and deliberately targeted her civilian population as their first line of attack. Ever since it declared itself a sovereign and independent state Israel has been threatened - every nation has the right to defend itself from naked aggression and as far as Yasser Arafat's "Palestinians" are concerned that is all that Israel, Jordan and the Lebanon have done (Arafat's "Palestinians" have threatened the peace and stability of all three countries)

Your "Palestinians" have had over 67 years to sort things out and have failed miserably so next time "it kicks off" down there in the Gaza Strip I would strongly recommend that nobody steps in, that no-one intercedes - just let them get on with it and solve it by force of arms - The Arabs default position and their preferred way of doing things according to their own clearly documented track record.

Jim, you put the Palestinian case but object to anyone giving Israel's side of the story.

Gaza 2014.
Israel was subjected to indiscriminate attacks on its civilians from terrorists hiding among civilians. It was a victim of war crimes.
It had a right and duty to respond, and tried to do so without breaking international law. The civilian deaths were the result of Hamas' war crimes not Israel's.

Beirut 1982.
An Arab militia carried out a reprisal massacre in the Sabra/Shatilla camp.
Other massacres also occurred in those camps.
All were committed by Arabs not Israelis.

You've said this before Terrytoon and I asked when did two wrongs make a right - didn't get a reply then, don't expect one now
The history of Israel has been one of driving out the Arabs to create a monotheistic state, one of expansionism, ongoing settlement on disputed territory, blockades, ghettoisation, refugee camps and ongoing persecution, terror, massacres.... using heavy artillery, chemicals,anti-personnel missiles, helicopters - the latest equipment.... and finally, a concerted effort to create an apartheid state.... first named as such by people living in Israel.
A bit unrealistic to expect people who have occupied the area for well over a thousand years to sit on their bums and do nothing.

Ehmmm NO Raggy. I know you have trouble with English but the whole gist of my post was that since 1921 VIOLENCE has been the Arabs answer to everything. The track record shows that every time the Arabs of the region under discussion and their Arab neighbours have been given a choice between peace and war they have chosen war - so yes let them slog it out to the finish - it has always been their choice - nothing whatsoever to do with me.

Every time they have ganged up and tried to implement their little scheme to destroy Israel and annihilate the inhabitants of the state of Israel they have come off the worse for it. Every time they have sued for peace they have reneged on every promise they have agreed to. The so-called "leaders" have failed their people for nearly seven decades now, they have received more in international aid than was given to the whole of Europe in the aftermath of the Second World War - and what have they done with it???

In considering my dads bigger than your dad arguments Terribums think of the following:

Palestine's GDP is approx 4 Billion.

America alone gave approx 3 billion of Military Aid to Israel in 2013.

That 3 billion represents about 20% of all US aid donations.

Equally, or not as the case actually is, Palestine receive no military aid from America.

So Palestine has approx 4 Billion per annum to run an entire country, schools, hospital, infrastructure etcetera etcetera and Israel get 3 Billion in military aid alone from America.

You do the math, it's not difficult.

Arafat's Billions


Arafat diverting aid to his own accounts

From the above:
"Rather than use donor funds for their intended purposes, Arafat regularly diverted money to his own accounts. It is amazing that some U.S. officials still see the Palestinian Authority as a partner even after U.S. congressional records revealed authenticated PLO papers signed by Arafat in which he instructed his staff to divert donors' money to projects benefiting himself, his family, and his associates."

"Arafat's men flagrantly displayed corruption. Arriving penniless in Gaza and the West Bank from exile in Tunisia, many PLO members amassed wealth, built villas in Gaza, Ramallah, Amman, and other places, and sent their children to the best schools in the United Kingdom and the United States. Hisham Makki, former head of the Palestine Broadcasting Services, assassinated in January 2001, earned a monthly salary of $1,500 but became a millionaire within a few years. Immediately after his assassination, Arafat froze Makki's personal bank accounts, estimated at $17 million. Makki was alleged to have taken bribes and sold government-owned equipment. However, it was rumored that he had a dispute with another PA official over the sharing of profits gained on illegal business transactions. His assailants, believed to be members of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, a shady group affiliated with Fatah, have never been caught."

Not "one person" a widely held opinion - including by many Israelis.
Some of the greatest criticism of Israeli policy comes from Jews - inside and outside Israel.
This includes former heads of Mossad and goes back as far as Albert Einstein.
You can put up as many examples you like of Palestinians reacting (often badly) to Israeli Terrorism - but it doesn't alter tha fact that Israel is in the hand of Extremist right wingers who are committing human rights abuses and war crimes in the name of the Jewish people.
By describing criticism of the Israeli regime as "Antisemitism" you are painting targets on the backs of every Jew on the planet.
The rise of Antisemitism in the world today is as much the fault of people like you as it is the growing number of fascist who are feeding off the actions of Israeli regime.

not that Likud is that way inclined so much, but the electoral system makes it unavoidable to concede much to these parties in order to produce any sort of viable coalition --

-- Golda Meir, statement to The Sunday Times, 15 June, 1969.

"Any one who speaks in favor of bringing the Arab refugees back must also say how he expects to take the responsibility for it, if he is interested in the state of Israel. It is better that things are stated clearly and plainly: We shall not let this happen."
-- Golda Meir, 1961, in a speech to the Knesset, reported in Ner, October 1961

"This country exists as the fulfillment of a promise made by God Himself. It would be ridiculous to ask it to account for its legitimacy."
-- Golda Meir, Le Monde, 15 October 1971

"do us a favour, Jim, & spare us your fucking "lip·service" pigshit just for once"

Will do Mike - if you spare us your "olive trees" hypocrisy.

A full discussion of actually what has happened and is still happening would clear the bad air that exists between us no end.

Indeed, holding up Golda Meir as some kind of enlightened advocate for reconciliation is bizarre to say the least. The Le Monde quote highlights the major problem, both sides here invoke God as a justification for the extreme positions they hold. I don't see a solution to this unless they each recognise the validity of the position of the other, and leave religion out of it. Horrible problem.

If you had a case you would not have to lie.

Example,
"We must expel Arabs and take their places."

What he really said,

"We do not wish, we do not need to expel the Arabs and take their place. All our aspirations are built upon the assumption — proven throughout all our activity in the Land — that there is enough room in the country for ourselves and the Arabs."
Letter to his son Amos (5 October 1937), as quoted in Teveth, Shabtai, Ben Gurion: The Burning Ground; and Karsh, Efraim (2000), Fabricating Israeli History: The 'New Historians'; this has been extensively misquoted as "[We] must expel Arabs and take their places" after appearing in this form in Morris, Benny (1987), The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem, 1947–1949, Cambridge University Press, p. 25.

My point Raggy is that those who call themselves "Palestinians" (An invention of Yasser Arafat's) have been appallingly let down by their own allies and by their own leaders since 1948.

The degree and scale of their self-serving corruption is staggering and blatantly evident to all.

The sources illustrating this with regard to Yasser Arafat number in the hundreds if not thousands - I merely selected three of them - so much for having to resort to anybody.

It was not the Israelis who bundled people on their own land and shut them up in camps and called them "refugees" that was done by the Egyptians, the Jordanians, and then that status was maintained by the Palestinian leaders - Refugees you see Raggy are very useful political pawns and the poorer their lot and the more hopeless you make their circumstances the better fund raisers they are - The ARAB "LEADERS" have deliberately fostered these circumstances and conditions since 1948 - all down to them - they could have peace tomorrow IF they wanted it - unfortunately THEY DON'T so the beat goes gone.

"Palestinian" was used to refer to the nationalist concept of a Palestinian people by the Arabs of Palestine in a limited way until World War I"
It came into full use when their right to their homeland was challenged by the Israelis - around the time the "State of Israel" was "invented"
"It was not the Israelis who bundled people on their own land and shut them up in camps and called them "refugees""

Of course "Palestine" was mentioned prior to the misfortune of Arafat copying his Uncle in using the Arabs from that REGION as a means of amassing a personal fortune and aggrandising himself.

Palestine refers to a geographic area comprising a collection of districts of what was the former Ottoman Empire.

Here Raggy is a map of the Ottoman Empire around 1900 - you will find no place on it called "Palestine":

Ottoman Empire 1900

Palestine has never existed as a country, Arafat invented it in the early 1970s in order to make money - this he did very successfully as his bank balance clearly shows - but Arafat's "Palestinians" never saw any benefit of it because it was in the best interests of the "Palestinians Leaders" to keep their people poor, impoverished and bereft of any hope, as in that condition they can be wound up and played like a cheap clockwork toy and as biddable as a well trained dog.

Ah; maybe I begin to see daylight. As suggested in my last post, and as I thought I should have made clear, I cited is as a particularly telling symbolic instance of exploitation and victimisation on Israel's part. I never suggested it was the only, or the worst, example that could be found; simply that its very pettiness was a sort of microcosm of a much greater & more culpable and reprehensible tendency to exploit & victimise. I still regard those groves, their owners' only means of maintenance, as symbolically important in the whole lamentable and discreditable debacle.

We both are guilty of this Mike- it happens in passionate argument
My apologies, when I have.
"it seems to me nevertheless that there have been times when you have at least verged on that 2005 definition of antisemitism"
If that's true we both have - attributing the actions of the Israeli regime to the Jewish People by describing criticism of the actions of that regime as "Antisemitic" - is in breach of the definition.
I have to say I am uneasy about the definition anyway - that you can't compare the actions of the Israeli Government to that of the Nazis, when in some cases it is highly comparable is somewhaat suspect.
Jews as early as Einstein and his fellow signatories, the ex-head of Mossad who stopped short of making such a comparison... and many other examples of loyal Israeli citizens using terms like 'reminiscent to the holocaust' or, 'Ethnic cleansing' - all cast doubt of that particular clause of the definition.
It has recently been amended to take into account what is now happening - much to the anger of the present leadership.
I have at no time directed my criticism at 'The Jews' - I leave that to Netanyahu, Bearded Bruce, and their ilk.
I believe the present leadership, unfortunately with a large following, have betrayed the the ideals of the State of Israel, just as I believe that various "Communist!!!" and "Socialist!!!" leaders beytrayed the dreams of people who believe the world is severely in need of a change for the better.   
I believe the Jews have become just as much victims of the present situation as have the Palestinian and (not to mention those of us who are not involved but are still under the shadow).
I have always spoken out about what I believe has happened to the left - I see no reason not to speak out about what I believe has happened to The State of Israel - just as much a dream of my family upbringing as was Socialism.

Palestine comes from the same root, Peleset, as Philistine, and they were one of the Sea Peoples who colonised the Eastern Mediterranean in the second millenium BC. Sure, they have been occupied since by Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Israelites, Romans, Byzantines, Selucids, Abbasids, Mongols, Ottomans, British, and many many more, and sure there will be lots of interbreeding to like the other populations in the area they will not be genetically pure, but to say they were never a country is nonsense.

The Palestinians and most of the world view the Jewish West Bank settlements as a violation of international law and as an obstacle to the establishment of a Palestinian state. Palestinians say the frustrations caused by the Israeli occupation are at the root of the outburst of violence."

Contrary to what apologists aver, the current wave of stabbings is not a reaction to occupation it is a reaction to an invented threat to the al-Aqsa mosque created by the leaders of Palestine's Muslims. They have used this fabrication to manipulate the emotions of Muslims convincing them that they must protect the Temple Mount from Jews. These emotions are also being flamed by the PA and particularly by Abbas with outrageous statements such as this one which he made on Official PA TV on September 16, 2015:

"We bless you, we bless the Murabitin (those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic), we bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood, blood spilled for Allah, Allah willing. Every Martyr (Shahid) will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah.

Now as we are discussing the creation of Israel from the former League of Nations Mandated Territory of Palestine (77% of which was hived off solely and exclusively for Arab settlement in 1923) To counter your claim that Palestine existed prior to Arafat's creation of it in the early 1970s I thought the map of the area of the previous owners might be of interest and guess what Raggy - no mention of Palestine to be seen anywhere.

Like the original Mandate defined by the League of Nations Roman Palestine was much larger than the amended 1923 League of Nations version.

Nice try at deflecting the discussion Raggy - hasn't worked - Oh dear, how sad, never mind. Palestine as a nation and "Palestinians" as a people were invented by Yasser Arafat as a means of making money sometime in the early 1970s.

Did Palestine exist in Roman (and biblical times) and did it exist in 1923.

As regards a link to the map, a mistake on my part. Have a look at the second map on the second line.

I have pointed out that I believe the taking of human is basically evil - I refuse to specify one or the other - ALL HUMAN LIFE (thought it was a Christian ethic - obviously not).
What I do say is what is happening at present is not unconnected with the slaughter of 2,104 Palestinian dead, including 1,462 civilians - 344 children And 110 women - the stabbings are the direct consequence of the actions of the Israeli regime - that does not justify them, it just explains why they are happening

An Israeli man was wounded Wednesday night in a suspected terror stabbing at a gas station outside the West Bank settlement of Givat Ze'ev, north of Jerusalem.

The man was treated by medical teams that arrived at the scene. The Magen David Adom first-aid service said he was stabbed in the upper body and moderately to severely wounded.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Earlier Wednesday, a Palestinian teen was arrested on suspicion that he had attempted to stab a soldier at the Qalandiya checkpoint near Jerusalem. There were no injuries in the incident.

During a routine army search on a bus at the checkpoint, the teenager was asked to show his identity card, and when he failed to do so, was requested to step out of the vehicle. At that point the 17-year-old pulled out a knife and tried to assault an IDF soldier, but the weapon fell from his hand, police said.

Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel.   CHECK
However, criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as antisemitic.   CHECK


"No I don't - show where I have "Israel is innocent""
Right – let's give it a try and see how we go.

1   Jewish forces were responsible for 24 massacres during the Arab/Israeli War – if this os disputed, please show   True or false?

2   Israel has a history of massacres dating to the beginning of the state
Massacres by Israeli troops and special forces took place in the fifites, sixties seventies, 80s,,, in fact, up to the present day Treu or false?

3   Towards the end of the Six Day War, Israeli officers ordered the execution of unarmed prisoners, then, having odered their buriel, ordered the killing of the gravediggers, selected from among the remaining prisoners, in otder to conceal the crime   True or false?

4    Using the pretence of searching for fighters and weapons, the Israeli army, under the leadership of Ariel Sharon, transported and armed Christian right-wing Falangists troops to the Sabra/Shatila refugee camps, opened the gates and stood by while, for there days, they massacred up to 3,500 unarmed refugee men women and children.
The three-day massacre included the mass rape of women, followed by throat-cutting, the disembowelling of living women and the tearing of the foetuses from their wombs.
One eye-witness survivor testified that she appealed to an Israeli soldier who was standing by as she was being dragged away – he turned his back on her.
So the massacre could continue throughout the night, the Israeli army provided illumination by flares – at the gates, they turned back refuges trying to escape.
At the end of three days, the army provided bulldozers to bury the bodies – eventually they built a Sports Stadium over the mass graves, ascertaining that the exact number of dead will never be known.
The Army then transported the killers from the scene – they have never been brought to justice
The man in charge of the Israeli troops, Ariel Sharon, was later elected Prime Minister of Israel
No democratic modern country has ever elected any individual accused, let alone found partially guilty of such a crime into high office – nowhere.
True or false?

5   In 2015, Israel invaded Gaza, leaving 2,104 Palestinian dead, including 1,462 civilians - 344 children.
The destruction included hospitals, schools, health centres, elderly care homes and many thousands of domestic dwellings, many of these still occupied.
On one occasion, the officials of a hospital informed an Israeli officer that they were unable to evacuate the patients because of their advanced ages and condition – the officer instructed them to stay where they were and, the following morning, bombarded the hospital with rockets and tank fire.
Followin the fighting, parties of Israeli troops wandered around the rubble picking off survivors.
True or false?

6   Since the invasion teh Israelis have fought tooth and nail to avoid standing trial - they have proposed that The International War Crimes Court be closed down/
Should this happen, there will be no International independant body to try the present war crimes taking place by people like Assad and Isis.
True or false?

There you go – try that for size, blue eyes.

"but says number of dead and wounded Palestinian children is unacceptable"

Look Keith - unless you are going to provide proof that they didn't do what I say they have - you may as well just put "they didn't do it" and save yourself the trouble.
Until you do, my points remain - prove them wrong don't just deny them.
The same goes for you Lilo
If wat I have put up is "propaganda and rubbish" - prove it
I have linked every single point to masses of evidence - where's yours?

The bits you didn't draw attention to in your Ban Ki-Moon defence

Officials said the UN special envoy for children in armed conflict, Leila Zerrougui, had recommended that both Israel and Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, be placed on the report's list of parties that recruit, use, kill, maim or commit acts of sexual violence against children. But the officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because the recommendation was not public, said there were differences of opinion among those on the ground on whether Israel should be listed – a key reason why it wasn't and neither was Hamas.

The report, covering 2014, includes Israel and "the state of Palestine" in a 33-paragraph section on "grave violations committed against children during armed conflict". It cites escalating hostilities in Gaza and a significant increase in tensions in the West Bank, "with devastating impacts for children".
In Gaza, at least 561 children – 557 Palestinians and 4 Israelis – were killed, and 4,271 were injured, all but 22 of them Palestinians, the report said. In the West Bank, 13 Palestinian boys and three Israeli youths were killed and 1,218 children

The secretary general urged Israel "to take concrete and immediate steps, including by reviewing existing policies and practices, to protect children, to prevent the killing and maiming of children, and to respect the special protections afforded to schools and hospitals".
He also urged Israel to ensure accountability for perpetrators of alleged violations.

Dear Mr. Secretary-General

Today you spoke of Palestinian attacks on Israelis and you said "it is human nature to react to occupation".

No, It was not human nature for Palestinians, in this past week alone, to stab to death Dafna Meir, a mother of six children, outside her home; to stab Michal Froman, a pregnant woman; or to stab Shlomit Krigman, a 23-year-old university graduate, who just died today from her wounds.

It's time for you to stop making excuses and hold Palestinians responsible for their actions - those who murder, and the Fatah, Hamas and other leaders who incite them.

Sincerely,
Hillel C. Neuer
UN Watch

Keith

Oriental names do normally render the single-syllable family name before the bisyllabic personal name:-

eg Chiang Kai-Shek was, in our terms, President Chiang; Mao Ze-Dong was Chairman Mao, &c.

I learned this while lecturing at universities in China for the British Council on English Folksong a few months before Tienanmen Square.

So Ban Ki-moon is indeed Mr Ban, as Dave says; and that is, as you ask, why.

They themselves are the ones who say so, so I think we should accept & respect it.

" Large amounts of foreign aid to the Palestinians are spent to support terrorists and deepen hostility [against Jews]. For years the most senior figures in the Palestinian Authority have supported, condoned and glorified terror. "Every drop of blood that has been spilled in Jerusalem," President Mahmoud Abbas said last September on Palestinian television, "is holy blood as long as it was for Allah." Countless Palestinian officials and state-run television have repeatedly hailed the murder of Jews.

This support for terrorism doesn't end with hate speech. The Palestinian regime in Ramallah pays monthly stipends of between $400 and $3,500 to terrorists and their families, the latter of which is more than five times the average monthly salary of a Palestinian worker.

According to data from its budgetary reports, compiled in June 2014 by Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the PA's annual budget for supporting Palestinian terrorists was then roughly $75 million..."

I have, in common with most who from time to time express opinions not uniformly in accord with the sort of PC·ness which tends to obtain among many Mudcatters, received a certain number of what might be regarded as personal attacks over the years that I have been contributing to this forum; and have endeavoured to take them in my stride as far as possible.

It used not to be 'within the rules of the forum', and I have several times expressed here the opinion, which I maintain, that it was a retrogressive step to permit anonymity. All sorts of complications flow from such usages: some purely administrative, such as never being sure if one is replying to the same correspondent as last time or to some interloper; others tending to a variety of emotional inhibiting factors. I fail to see why anyone with the courage of his convictions should need to resort to such evasions: even if it might mean, ah diddums & deary·weary·me, that somebody might call him by a bit of a naughty name!

As you persist in remaining The Man With No Name, [perhaps Clint Eastwood or some such will be playing you in the film?], I am unable to identify what might have been the subject of these PM exchanges which you recollect between us, so must remain frustratingly inhibited from commenting further.

I reckon the former, and my experience includes what civilised people call Palestine too. Business is business. I'll tell you what though. The combination of aggression and terrorism combined with screaming that retaliation is aggression, and only those bankrolled by idealists in New York needing to listen in order to attempt to shame the world into looking the other way whilst Israeli militants try repeating what was done to European Jews but on Arabs, it's sickening.

"I just put Israel's case that it acted within International Law, a"
You have had the facts Keith
Israel has only acted within "International law" because it has never had to confront "Interntional Law - it has been protected by American Veto which has prevented it from coming to trial.
Israel's position as far as "International Law is concerned is exactly the same as that of Assad's Syria which is protected by Russian and Chinese veto - both Israel and Syria are terrorist states and both are untried - if "Israel didn't do it" as you claim, then neither did Assad (I wait with interest to see if support of Syrian terrorism will be your next big attention seeker).
We mortals have only the facts to go on.
You have the detailed evidence of Israel's acts of terror - not opinions - on the spot, eye witness accounts from medical staff, from human rights representatives (a real eye-opener - your not admitting to supporting human rights), from Jewish historians documenting Isreal's history, From David Ben Gurion....... every single thing I have put up I have linked to evidence - you have put up none yourself and responded to nothing.
Your pathetic argument that the Israeli regime must be innocent because Western politicians have continued to have friendly relations with her on their crimes exceeds every idiotic excuse you have ever put up - and that's saying something
On that basis, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Russia, China, Syria.... and all the despotic terrorist states the West "has friendly relations with are all as innocent as babes in arms.
Give us a break - that's as feeble-minded as it comes.
The west's silence is based entirely on the fact that Israel's supporters are politically and economically influential - a force to be reckoned with for Western politicians and economists.
Their position in the world today is little different than that of the gun lobby in the U.S. - too powerful to go against - innocent children continue to be massacred in American schoolyards; Palestinians continue to suffer and die in The Middle East.   
You said you don't claim "Israel is innocent", that I "made it up".
You lied and confirmed your lying by continuing to say "Israel is innocent"
Now - give us your evidence that "Israel is innocent" - confront the evidence - your efforts haven't been exactly auspicious so far.

Not true. International Law applies to Gaza 2014.
It is acceptable to counter an aggressor who attacks civilians indiscriminately, breaking International Law.
If that aggressor further breaks International Law by operating from civilian areas, it is still acceptable to counter them if certain provisions are adhered to.
Israel did.

Your pathetic argument that the Israeli regime must be innocent because Western politicians have continued to have friendly relations with her

Democratic governments are not uncritical of Israel.
Israel's settlement policy has come in for strong criticism, but there is just no evidence of any massacres or atrocities.
Just accusations from Israel's enemies, and propaganda.

We have to hold our noses and deal with some unsavoury regimes because of their strategic assets such as oil.
Israel has only orange juice.
No-one has to be their friend, but decent democracies like to encourage others, especially in a region otherwise devoid of them.

The west's silence is based entirely on the fact that Israel's supporters are politically and economically influential
Who??
Israel's enemies have a lot of clout too!
The whole Arab world.
The whole Muslim world.
Every corrupt regime that fears democracy.

You said you don't claim "Israel is innocent"

You dishonestly put it in quotes claiming I had actually said it.
I never have or would. You lied, not me.

"In January 17, 2009, a team led by the Texas firm, Noble Energy Inc., discovered methane in a field (Tamar) now estimated to contain 275 billion cubic meters (9.7 trillion cubic feet) of natural gas—about half of what Europe consumes annually. A year later, the same team announced the discovery of monster gas field to the west of Tamar (Leviathan), which alone contains about as much gas as Europe consumes annually. There have been several other finds of smaller, but nevertheless substantial fields. In neighboring Cyprus, another field (Aphrodite) comparable to Tamar was discovered by Noble Energy, abutting and even slightly spilling into Israel's waters. In short, Israel and its neighbor now sit atop roughly two years' worth of European consumption."

JERUSALEM — There have been fights over books, music, plays, funding for the arts and academic awards. This being Israel, they have been underpinned by fierce rhetorical exchanges about democracy, fascism and zealotry, identity, the future of the state and the fate of Jews.

The latest was an attack on Wednesday by a far-right group on beloved leftist literary icons including Amos Oz, A. B. Yehoshua and David Grossman, writers who have been considered the voice — and conscience — of the state for years. The group, Im Tirtzu, began a poster campaign calling the writers "moles in culture," which prompted accusations of McCarthyism.

Ms. Regev the divisive and conservative minister of culture and sport,said that the aim of the "Loyalty in Culture" initiative, proposed as an amendment to a must-pass budget bill, is "for the first time to make support for a cultural institution dependent on its loyalty to the state of Israel."

"The search, identification and marking of alleged traitors is an old fascist characteristic, an ugly and dangerous one," said an appalled Benny Begin, a member of Parliament and a former minister from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party.

This month, the left-leaning daily Haaretz highlighted internal discussions in the ministry about what artistic works might be considered "politically undesirable" for high-school students. Among the criteria, the newspaper said, were whether artists would perform in West Bank settlements and declare loyalty to the state and to the national anthem, something that is particularly problematic for Israel's Arab citizens.

Internal discussions are not policy, but even this report drew stinging responses, with Oded Kotler, a prominent Israeli actor and director, comparing Israel to the Soviet Union and telling Israel Radio, "There's a real culture war underway here, but the war from that side of the political map is a harbinger of zealotry, darkness and coercion."

Well, Teribus, I suppose Jerusalem has something of the allegory about its bow, arrows and chariot of fire, but the others aren't exactly pacifist songs, are they? Even a little bit imperialistic in places? Raggytash could have included Hearts Of Oak as well, I suppose. Just because these songs are now regarded as part of our tradition and a little "establishment" (last night of the Proms, anyone?) doesn't take away from their original intent, which was to inspire people to be, er, non-pacifist... I'm not judging that but I am saying that you're wrong to assume that "our" militaristic songs are fine whereas those of The Other are not. It's the way of the world to have tunes to rouse you to the cause. The whole world, including us. You don't have to like it.

No, I just put their side of the story.
How could any fair minded person object to both sides of an argument being put?
What is your objection Jim?


Redeem your behaviour and address the evidence you have been given,

None actually!

It never ceases to amaze me how Jims irrational hatred can be defended.

Very few do. Four names? All sharing his extreme politics and feeling they have to support him.

"There is no consensus among historians of Israel as there is about aspects of WW1."
Christ only knows where WW1 comes into this - still smarting from the kicking you got on the subject, no doubt
Who disputes Benny Morris and on what grounds - didn't he sell his books in "Real bookshops" - can't be that he's dead.
The only criticism of Benny Morris I can find is that he tends to draw his information only from Israeli sources.
The massacres he lists, which you claim don't exist "what massacres?" - or "no massacres" - are recorded events of history - they were petitioned against by Einstein, and have never been denied - until now, by you.
"No we have not, because there is none."
Just answerd that one - the rest have never been tried because any pfficial eaxamination of them has been blocked by U.S. vetoes.
"Those quotes were fake, and you knew they were when you gave them."
Now we're back to "fake" after theme being "he didn't mean that" - you cant't even stick to your own story
Who says they are "fake" other than you?
People have tried to re-interpret them, as you have , but nobody has denied they were ever made - other than you.
Is this the line you are going with now or can we expect something else in the future?
"No, I just put their side of the story."
You are not giving the Israeli's "side of the story" - only that of the Israeli regime.
Report of massacres, of atrocities and persecution, and attemprs to set up an apartheid state, from Haraatz, from Jews for Justice, from Rabbis for Justice, from jews both inside and outside Israel - your line is only peddled from the extreme right-wing politicians who refuse to be tried for their crimes - that's waht I said - you have rejected what all Jew who don't suppore the regime have to say.   
Criticism of the Isreali by Jews has covered: Antisemitism, persecution of Palestinians, same of the Bedouins, the Blockade, massacres, using chemicals against both Palestinians and Bedouins, bringing the reputation of the Jewish people into disrepute, using "antisemitism" as a defence and by doing so, putting the wellbeing of Jews throughout the world at risk, creating an Apartheid state, encouraging Apartheid South Africa to obtain nuclear weapons.... and much much more
Even Holocaust survivors condemned Israel for the Gaza the massacres you claim have never taken place. Holocaust survivors condemn massacres
By brushing aside all these criticisms, you have adopted teh attitude that every Jew who criticisms the Israeli regime is not to be believed or regarded - that reeks of Antisemitism (and something just as sinister) in my book.
You have linked nothing, you have produced no evidence for anything - do so now, or climb down
"Disagreeing with Jim get you accused of antisemitism, "
Read what I put up Lilo and answer - that'll prove me wrong
You drift in and out of these discussions on tee tide like your air-filled namesake.
How about the information on Vanunu - that'd be a good start.

Jim puts up over the top rants. His arguments, if one can call those rants rants arguments , consist of venomous bile and hatred. you may call it balanced debate, I would call it by another name.
I am not blindly pro Israel. I am aware of the situation in that country and like many others, I am also aware of what needs to change, not just in Israel, but in the Middle East. To disagree with Jims views does not equate to being an islamophobe or to being a fucking disgrace. It just means that I take exception to his relentless nonsense, and his accusations of antisemitism against those who dare to disagree with him.
I think Keith and Teribus are wasting their time putting facts here, Jim is not interested in facts. He cannot see beyond his hatred. To oppose his views is not bigotry, it is essential or no reasoned debate will ever occur. It would be grand if this subject could be discussed without the usual name calling and drivel. That will not happen as long as There is support for this over the top   Fanatasism continues.
I firmly believe that the Palestinian people deserve better both from Israel, and from their own leaders. people who share Jims views will sully that discussion at every turn.
if you wish to support his views Steve. That is your affair, but I cannot support that kind of anti Israel obsession, on any grounds.

Is that the side of the "the extreme right-wing politics of the regime that has systematically turned Israel into an oppressive, aggressive and extremely dangerous terrorist state"

No.
I have put Israel's case as all you comrades have put the opposite case.
No fair minded person could object to both sides being heard.

Who says they are "fake" other than you?
Example,
"We must expel Arabs and take their places."
-- David Ben Gurion, 1937, Ben Gurion and the Palestine Arabs, Oxford University Press, 1985."

What he really said,

"We do not wish, we do not need to expel the Arabs and take their place. All our aspirations are built upon the assumption — proven throughout all our activity in the Land — that there is enough room in the country for ourselves and the Arabs."
Letter to his son Amos (5 October 1937), as quoted in Teveth, Shabtai, Ben Gurion: The Burning Ground; and Karsh, Efraim (2000), Fabricating Israeli History: The 'New Historians'; this has been extensively misquoted as "[We] must expel Arabs and take their places" after appearing in this form in Morris, Benny (1987), The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem, 1947–1949, Cambridge University Press, p. 25.

First off, I don't stoop to reading his bile.

Secondly, one can find anything on the internet to support whatever take you have on an issue. I can post plenty of links that show that his views, and those of his supporters, are shared by neo Nazis and white supremacists.

"Jim puts up over the top rants. "
Stop waffling and answer the points
If tey are what you claim they are, they are easily exposisable as such by facts
You have put up none - just in and out, in and out - just like the tide.
Show where they are wrong
At least you might have the courtesy to show where the Holocaust survivors are wrong and not "ranters"
