Israeli justice minister: BDS is the ‘new face of terrorism’

Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked branded the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement a form of “terrorism”, in remarks made yesterday.

Speaking at a Jewish National Fund (JNF) conference in New York, the hardline right-wing minister compared the BDS campaign to tunnels under the Gaza border fence.

“Sometimes the BDS movement’s funding sources are identical to those funding the terrorist organisations,” Shaked claimed, adding: “This is the new face of terrorism.”

The minister claimed that while “criticism of Israel is legitimate”, criticism “that attempts to undermine Israel’s right to exist is illegitimate.”

Therefore, Shaked said: “The BDS is illegitimate. I define it thus: BDS is another branch of terrorism in the modern age.”

Speaking to a primarily Jewish American audience, Shaked regretted that “there are also some young Jewish liberals who get confused and are led astray by this movement.”

“They swallow the lies that the Palestinian propaganda disseminates. They have fallen into this web and are not even aware of the fact that the mechanisms pulling the strings are terrorists from radical Islam.”

    ‘israel’ took terrorism to Palestine and the world at large as Menachem Begin bragged. It has been its MO for 68 yrs to keep the natives in check &/or off their land

          They just were very big supporters of Hitler.

      • Bishadi

        Being against israel has nothing to do with religion, except that the right wing nuts of zionism want a temple where that gold domed building of Jerusalem is, and that’s about impossible.
        .Go see the news. They attacked the site again.

        • Eric11210

          Another tired lie. Boring.

        • Helen4Yemen

          Zionism = Judaism

          For what other reason are the European Ashkenazis in Palestine except due to their religion? Can you tell me what connects the deluded Europeans to Palestine except the OT?

          • Bishadi

            Zionism is closer to the terrorist of isil but using the label of Judaism.
            .
            The pursuit of that hill (zion) has been warned about since Moses. Throughout the tanakh that site has been warned of. Judaism is about adhering to the commandments and zionism is about a SITE on the earth (hill with a gold domed building on it, in Jerusalem). 1 group (Jews) by choice, follow the rules. The other group claims to be chosen by ‘god’ to build a temple and god will give them the reigns to rule mankind.
            HUGE difference between a Jew and a zionist. 1 side is getting the shaft by the other using their name. Just like the muslims are of the isil nut cases.
            .
            I understand bunches of folk claim many various tangents but even way way way back when josephus wrote of the temple destruction, he even put to writing, that the people requiring that hill, are not Jewish.
            .
            It’s so sad.

  • Devilworshipper

    Pity such a pretty woman has such an ugly personality.
    Zionists will come out with any ridiculous lie that suits them. I remember Regev interviewed by satellite a couple of years ago when questioned about the blockade of Gaza saying, “There is no blockade”. Similarly here. Shaked saying BDS is ‘the new face of terrorism,” when those of us who support it do so because it is a non-violent way of putting pressure on Israel. It is quite the opposite.

    • James Mendelsohn

      Just look at the aims of BDS, it is simply war by another means.

      • Bishadi

        BDS is non violent! The use of the word terrorism, is for the pity fest.

        • James Mendelsohn

          Agree it’s not terrorism (which is why I didn’t use the word) but its aims are the same as the Arab war effort since before 1948 – namely, to destroy Israel.

          • Bishadi

            That claim is the rhetoric. Stopping the oppression does not destroy israel. Stopping the aggression for that ‘temple’ on that stupid hill in Jerusalem, just ends ‘zionism’ and the violence.

          • James Mendelsohn

            One of the express aims of BDS is the so-called (and legally spurious) “right of return” of of the millions of descendants of the 1948 Pal refugees to pre-1967 Israel. This would mean the end of Israel as a Jewish state, achieving Arab military aims by other means.

          • Bishadi

            Quote ————- James Mendelsohn 8 minutes ago “One of the express aims of BDS is the so-called (and legally spurious) “right of return” of of the millions of descendants of the 1948 Pal refugees to pre-1967 Israel.””
            .
            Do you means undo the ethnic cleansing of the lands? be honest.
            .
            But, if just IF, the lands taken were either returned or reparations; do you consider either?
            .
            There is no such thing as using a theological text or what happened 2000 yrs ago as collateral or valuation in the case of differences.
            .
            What has happened to those human beings, must be addressed.

          • James Mendelsohn

            The refugee problem was caused by a war of attempted ethnic cleansing launched by Arabs against Jews, not vice versa.

            The descendants of the 1948 refugees should be resettled in the Arab countries to which they fled (rather than being kept in refugee camps for 70 years as a political tool with which to beat Israel), or resettled in a future Palestinian state.

          • Bishadi

            The pals were there first, before israel even existed. Nothing to debate. Now when the fences come down, a solution must be established. Are you wanting to debate precedence as your focus? Reality is, the bias has lasted half a century. Israel has controlled most of it. That obtuse bias, is OVER.
            Or are you ready to disqus solutions?

          • Eric11210

            Actually, they weren’t. That is a tired and well worn lie.

          • Bishadi

            Actually, the very reason the divide continues is people like you, willing to wear the lie as colors.

          • James Mendelsohn

            There were Arabs there but they didn’t call themselves Palestinians. There was no independent Pal state.

            There have always been Jews in the land as well.

            I don’t understand the rest of your first paragraph.

            The only way to satisfy the legitimate national aspirations of both groups is to have one majority Jewish state and one majority Arab state. I am very happy to join forces with you in working towards that solution.

          • Bishadi

            Palestine was labeled Palestine about 2000 plus years ago. There are more maps globally with Palestine on it, throughout history, than israel.
            If you want to pursue solutions, then NEVER claim Palestinians do not exist because it is as sick to read as a ww2 big-it talking -blank- against Jews.
            Is that clear?
            First off, israel DOES NOT represent Jews. It never has, because many of the religious Jews know the torah and tanakh and taking that land by force is a compete NO NO per the old religious doctrine. So as you claim ‘one majority jewish and one majority arab’ is about ridiculous on 2 fronts. Arab does not mean muslim and israel DOES NOT mean Jewish. Both RELIGIONS are just learned religions and there is no such thing as a ‘people’ that is a religion.
            .

          • James Mendelsohn

            The area was first named “Palestine” by the Romans in 135 AD, after they crushed a Jewish revolt and then forcibly depopulated the area of Jews. Before then, it was known first as Canaan and then as Israel.

            Whilst the area has been known as Palestine since that time, there has never been an independent Palestinian state. I never said that Palestinian Arabs didn’t exist, just that they didn’t call themselves that until the 1960s.

            I don’t understand your final para, other than noting that you reject a two-state solution. So what do you propose instead?

            (By the way, you are right to call out Helen4Yemen, who is clearly nuts.)

          • Bishadi

            In Palestine way back when the animal sacrificing was weird to the romans, christians, and about everyone. Even before islam existed, that site used to have a big temple on it. That site was retaining the Egyptian rituals and people were tired of it.
            .
            The rhetoric that ‘Palestine was never a state’ is the redundant rant of morons. The people existed THERE. No matter the religion. The human beings are what is relevant, the name Palestine existed for far longer than israel, no matter how it is sliced.

            You didn’t understand, “israel DOES NOT represent Jews. It never has, because many of the religious Jews know the torah and tanakh and taking that land by force is a compete NO NO per the old religious doctrine”….?

            You did not understand, ” Arab does not mean muslim and israel DOES NOT mean Jewish. Both RELIGIONS are just learned religions and there is no such thing as a ‘people’ that is a religion”….?
            .
            .

            .
            .

          • James Mendelsohn

            What solution do you propose, if not a 2-state-solution?

          • Bishadi

            Either the Hashemite make a deal to give up that hill, the divide will never end.
            a …. israel disarms completely; they get the hill
            b …. israel enforced that no israeli or any claiming zionist or jew or even god itself, is taking that hill for ‘temple’
            .
            The rest is far easier to address, but until that ‘hill’ issue is addressed, there is no solution that even remotely makes sense because that site WILL always be a breaking point.
            .
            As for 1 or 2 states, israel will back off Jerusalem. It can be a ‘holy city’ to all populations but the IDF is done running that city.
            .

          • James Mendelsohn

            So… potentially one Jewish state and one Arab state with special arrangements for the Temple Mount? Now we are talking in a constructive manner, at long last.

          • Bishadi

            The special is an either or. Either ‘zionist’ get to build that temple, which requires the removal of the other building(s) or the ‘zionist’ find another hill (ie… end the pursuit for that specific hill).
            .
            I figure, if the ‘zionist’ are so holy, they can disarm, at least completely from Jerusalem and remove all nukes from the ‘holy land’, in exchange for ‘the hill’.
            .
            Or.
            Just publish, that they will never seek that site. And still end the IDF force from the old city, because it is a ‘holy land’ to many from all over the world. A UN group can police the site.
            .
            The 2 state stuff is where the political teams can finish that part. But until ‘the hill’ issue is addressed, nothing will stop the conflict.
            .
            .

          • Helen4Yemen

            {There have always been Jews in the land as well.}

            True, but did any lily-white-European-Ashkenazis ever live on the land of Palestine prior to the stampede to steal the land? Of course not! Ashkenazis are European who converted to Judaism in the 8th century and started calling themselves ‘Jews’. Yes or no?

          • James Mendelsohn

            no, try reading some history.

            Even David Duke, former Grand WizArd of the Klu Klux Klan, has renounced Khazar theory. Your particular brand of antisemitism is so last year.

          • Helen4Yemen

            Yes, I know David Duke says the Khazars are not Khazars because then it would mean that the people that he hates the most originate from the same European land as he and that thought is dreadful for Duke.

          • Bishadi

            shut up.

          • Helen4Yemen

            Benny Morris:

            __ It is impossible to evade it. Without uprooting of the Palestinians, a Jewish state would not have arisen here…. A Jewish state would not have come into being without the uprooting of 700,000 Palestinians. Therefore it was necessary to uproot them. There was no choice but to expel that population….” — Benny Morris

            __ The revised book is a double-edged sword. It is based on many documents that were not available to me when I wrote the original book, most of them from the Israel Defense Forces [IDF] archives. What the new material shows is that there were far more Israeli acts of massacre than I had previously thought. To my surprise, there were also many cases of rape. In the months of April-May 1948, units of the Haganah [the pre-State defense force that was the precursor of the IDF] were given operational orders that stated explicitly that they were to uproot the villagers, expel them and destroy the villages themselves.

          • Helen4Yemen

            Why can’t the lily-white-European-Ashkenazis be resettled back home in Germany, Russia, Poland, Britain ..? Give me a good reason? You the European foreigner continue to exist only because of the support of America, Britain and so on. Remember the Arabs sent packing the Crusaders, the French, the British, the Italians, right? Do you think the European-Ashkenazis will continue to cling to Arab Palestine forever? Think again!

          • Devilworshipper

            Absolute nonsense! Ben Gurion’s forces had it all planned out in ’48, or have you not heard of ‘Plan Dalet’?

          • James Mendelsohn

            Yes of course I have heard of Plan Dalet. Assuming, however, that (a) you are relying on Ilan Pappe’s interpretation of it, and (b) that you are open-minded and willing to reconsider your own beliefs, please take 15 minutes to watch the Youtube video’Ilan Pappe’s “Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine”: A Hoax Revealed’. I think you will find it illuminating.

          • Devilworshipper

            I have to admit that far from finding it illuminating, I found it extremely tedious and difficult to take in all at once. I had to keep pausing it while I checked the references in my own copy of ‘Ethnic Cleansing’ (Yes, I do rely mainly on his interpretation, which is why I also bought Benny Morris’ ‘1948’). As I posted earlier, though, I’ve often found this is a problem I get debating with Zionists. I get a mass of information, instead of concentrating on a few points.

            Perhaps you could isolate a couple of points from the video, Mr Mendelsohn for us to discuss. It is interesting that nearly all Pappe’s evidence is thoroughly noted from archive research(which the video does graciously concede at one point) whereas nearly all the video’s evidence is founded on newspapers.

          • James Mendelsohn

            Hello DW
            Thanks for being prepared to engage in a respectful manner (not always the case with anti-Zionists).
            Difficult to isolate just a couple of points – I have picked out five – you are welcome to respond to as many as you wish.
            1. It seems most sensible to start at the end, at 13:57, where Pappe is quoted as admiting that facts are less important to him than ideology. That should immediately set alarm bells ringing. (He has made similar comments elsewhere – Google “Ilan Pappe stick to the facts” for a sample.)
            2. At 6:05, the video points out that Pappe respects newspapers as a historical record. This places Pappe in a difficult position, since so many of his own claims are contradicted by contemporary newspaper reports from 1948. This is shown throughout the video, but three salient examples are Pappe’s characterisation of the Arab response to the Partition Plan as mere “vandalism” (2:20); his account of Deir Yassin, particularly as contrasted with that of Morris (5:37); or his claim that the Jews did not attempt to persuade the Arabs to stay (9:50).
            3. 6:49-9:14 – Pappe FAILS to present any documentation for a number of claims, most importantly for his central thesis, that B-G and his “cabal” deliberately planned to expel the Arabs. (7:08-10:11).
            4. 10:3-11:56 -whereas modern pro-Palestinian websites claim that, on 15 May 1948, the Israelis expelled 750,00 Arabs, there is no mention of that date AT ALL in Pappe’s book – because it is too big a lie even for him.
            5. Interesting that you are reading Morris as well. You might want to read Morris’ critiques of Pappe – google “Liar as hero Morris” or “Politics by other means Morris”. they cannot both be right, although they could both be wrong, a point made by Efraim Karsh in “Fabricating Israeli history” (and elsewhere).
            I look forward to reading your responses.
            Ciao

            In your own words, tell me why any other Jew except for the indigenous Palestinian Jews are on the land of Palestine.

            Free Disney passes.

          • Helen4Yemen

            Gotcha! There is a reason why I ask that question, because there is no other reason for European leeches to cling to Palestine except to leech off Arab resources. What has Palestine got to do with a German Jew? or Lithuanian Jew or Russian Jew?

          • Bishadi

            There are barely any resources in the lands israel took. Jews know better than to mess with the ‘city of blood’. What you are having a problem with are zionist, but you’re too obtuse to grow up. You and I have history and for some reason you have a specific path of rhetoric that you use to argue but no matter the answers, you return to your same script.

          • Helen4Yemen

            {Jews know better than to mess with the ‘city of blood’. }

            Which Jews? The Chinese or Nigerian or Russian or German Jews or Yemeni or Ethiopian … Jews?

          • Bishadi

            Jews are honest before belief. The people that retain the rules of personal responsibility by choice, are Jewish, because they earn it. I could care less where on the earth they are from or live. Now of many OTHER tangents, the tribe, the name of a state or even what a parent believes is what makes a person an ‘arab’ or ‘jew’ or ‘christian’ or even them Ashkenazi that you like so much.
            .
            Jews can read torah/tanakh and know better than mess with that hill (aka… fortress), which is ‘zion’, because they are honest with themselves, before beliefs.
            .
            .
            And the truly nut cases, believe the rhetoric of birthrights and ‘chosen ones’ or even the ignorance that ‘resources’ are where the value is of Palestine.

          • Helen4Yemen

            Zionism = colonialism! Yes or no?

          • Bishadi

            No. It is the pursuit of that hill. The site is considered ‘zion’. If you comprehended WHY the nuts are there, you could learn how to address the problem.

          • Helen4Yemen

            True or false?

            Jabotinsky:

            “A voluntary reconciliation with the Arabs is out of the question either now or in the future. If you wish to colonize a land in which people are already living, you must provide a garrison for the land, or find some rich man or benefactor who will provide a garrison on your behalf. Or else-or else, give up your colonization, for without an armed force which will render physically impossible any attempt to destroy or prevent this colonization, colonization is impossible, not difficult, not dangerous, but IMPOSSIBLE!… Zionism is a colonization adventure and therefore it stands or falls by the question of armed force. It is important… to speak Hebrew, but, unfortunately, it is even more important to be able to shoot – or else I am through with playing at colonizing.”

            What have European converts to Judaism got to do with ‘Zion’? Imagine if the Europeans converts had numbered 1 billion? Where would all those foreigners fit on the land of Palestine? Got answer?

          • Helen4Yemen

            True or false?

            Jabotinsky:

            “Every native population, civilised or not, regards its lands as its national home, of which it is the sole master, and it wants to retain that mastery always; it will refuse to admit not only new masters but, even new partners or collaborators.”

            UP.
            Grow up!

          • Helen4Yemen

            Grow up? I only quoted Jabotinsky! Is he not telling the truth?
            You do not like the truth that Palestine was colonized by lily-white-Euro-Jewry?
            You try to cover up naked European invasion of Palestine as ‘the silly hill’?

          • Bishadi

            You’re not Palestinian. Are you a zionist, trying to find haters? The reason I say that, is you are about as obtuse as the proudzionist that I busted cold in the ‘conservative’ channel.

          • Helen4Yemen

            You want foreign European leeches to share Palestine but you refuse to give me a good reason why the German Jew is in Palestine?

          • Helen4Yemen

            Listen: You are a European German-Russian-Polish-Lithuanian who removed your European identity and replaced it with a hocus-pocus identity of ‘Israeli’. No European Ashkenazi ever lived in Palestine before the stampede begun and it is a misnomer. You have the nerve to aim to remove the Palestinian identity of Palestinians while you wrapped around yourself with a total fake identity of ‘Israeli’.

          • Helen4Yemen

            Who gave Palestine to international Jewry? Did the Palestinians or was it Europeans who wanted to get rid of their own European Jews? We want these foreigners GONE! They have homelands in Britain, America, Russia, Poland, German, Lithuania. There is no reason for sticking around except to continue to leech off Arab resources.

          • Bishadi

            You’re on the edge of nuts.

          • Helen4Yemen

            Tell me which of my statements are false?

            _ Who gave Palestine to international Jewry? Did the Palestinians or was it Europeans who wanted to get rid of their own European Jews?

            _ We want these foreigners GONE! They have homelands in Britain, America, Russia, Poland, German, Lithuania.

            _ There is no reason for these European predators to stick around Arab land except to continue to leech off Arab resources.

            Why am I on ‘the edge of nuts’? Were the Kenyans on ‘the edge of nuts’ when they rejected foreign colonists? Were the Algerians? Were the Egyptians? I resent these European predatory leeches colonizing Palestine. My feelings are shared by all people of the region. We reject these foreign elements the same way the body rejects cancer. You tell me what it is that we owe foreign European leeches leeching off our soil? Got answer. You want the Palestinians to share their land with European leeches? Why?

          • Bishadi

            You’re whole line of commenting is just ranting. It is as it you are a leach for the blood of an argument. You lack peace of mind. I have a hard time with the obtuse.
            Go Go BDS

          • Helen4Yemen

            Why is ‘Israel’ on Arab land and not on German soil?
            Give me one good reason why Europeans are on the land of Palestine?

          • Bishadi

            Arab? Palestine Jews and Palestinian Christians and bahai, muslim, etc….. does not mean ‘arab lands’. Technically the whole levant are of human beings, with many belief variations. It’s what makes it so rich culturally.
            I told WHY; the stupid hill with a gold domed building on it is focal to ‘zionism’ (temple mount).
            Oil and regional location is how my congress was initially bamboozled into funding the mess, but the reason israel even exists in the land of many ‘Pals’ is that stupid hill (holeee of holeee’s per se).
            .
            If it was about a sweet homeland, ‘they’ could have purchased a tropical island, and with the money, paved the streets in gold and made a real live atlantis, all holy and with animal sacrificing every day..
            .Are your questioned answered?
            ps…. arab means wanderer/nomad. They have homes in Palestine, but the ethnic cleansing removed a bunch and why they are now civilly called ‘refugees’ in gaza etc…

          • Helen4Yemen

            You are slithering around like a snake to justify theft of Palestine by the European Ashkenazis.
            Are you aware that European Jews have more than 40 genetic diseases that no other Jews have? While testing for these diseases, genetics scientists discovered that only European Jews were carriers of these Genetic diseases and no Arab Jews were. Test after test revealed that the Arab Jews were free of these diseases. What does that tell you? It tells you scientifically that there is no genetic connection between the white European Jews and the Semitic Jews of the M/E. European Jews are European from time immemorial. Not a single European Jew is a Semite. The Arab Jews are Semites. That is the truth and the undisputed truth.

          • Bishadi

            BDS is the best way to fight israel, without violent.
            You’re so biased with hate, it is weird to see the information that you use to support your claims. All you are doing is making a case for the zionist, that hate is all you know. It is why I keep telling you to shut up.
            To help you: All religions are learned. It makes no difference what their ‘genes’ are.

          • Helen4Yemen

            {All religions are learned. It makes no difference what their ‘genes’ are.}

            100% correct. But go tell that to the European Khazars who are so deluded to believe that their only origin is Palestine.

            I am here to state openly that we the people of the region reject all LEECHES whether British or Italian or French or Ashkenazis. I am here to state openly that Palestine is Arab, 100% Arab, a land of its indigenous inhabitants who are all Palestinians who practiced Judaism-Islam-Christianity. Any other variety of Jew on the land of Palestine is a leech and needs to go home just like the French, the British, the Italians went home!

          • Bishadi

            GO GO BDS ……………. I personally do not believe that you are from the region. Specifically because you had no idea that ‘the hill’ was the central problem. A zionist has a hard time admitting it, but anyone of Palestine, is clearly aware of it.

          • Helen4Yemen

            in 1948, what you call the Arabs – the Palestinians – were home minding their own business when alien lily-white-Europeans arrived by the millions. What would you do if millions of Chinese were to stampede towards stolen Palestine? Will the European thieves of Palestine allow millions of Chinese to invade their stolen land?

      • Helen4Yemen

        If it is war, what stops the European Jews from going back home to Europe?
        Give me one good reason.

      • Devilworshipper

        ‘By another means’ is a crucial phrase here, as it makes all the difference in the world.
        If you want to define BDS as ‘war’, well, then, I might accept that, because war is the result of sides not agreeing; in this case, in my opinion, as a result of Israeli intransigence.

        • James Mendelsohn

          You are of course entitled to your opinion, but the facts say completely the opposite.

        And now I’m getting childish. Sorry!

  • Svein Storetvedt

    Support BDS 100%. This human right violator carryes no moral vaight! Who gives a f… What she claims??

  • I love BDS and will always support the oppressed. The real terrorist is the bogus racist state of israel that uses banned weapons, rapes children illegally imprisoned and operates apartheid yet claims to be “the most democratic state in the Middle East” and have the cheek to call themselves “settlers” . These upsetters do not know meaning of word settle. maybe 1% belong there if that. the rest should all “Return” to their native lands in Europe/Russia etc. They think they are cowboys like the white man in USA. Stop the crazy racist fools from destroying the world. If USA loves zionists so much invite them over to stay. USA took the land from the proud natives there. (This was done with a little bit of help from Africans although i do not recall seeing them represented in any films from my childhood) It is time for everyone to stand up against racism. Look after society first. Beware of power crazed liars like netanyahu that thrive on genocide.

    • Eric11210

      You also love telling grand lies it seems.

  • Bishadi

    BDS is a non-violent protest. Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against israel for the oppression, occupation and abuse to Palestinians (human beings).
    That’s it.
    .
    When the ‘Justice Minister’ of israel claims it is ‘terrorism’ is evidence that BDS is not only working, but putting fear into the minds of the oppressive minds of israel.
    The ‘JNF’ meeting is about money. BDS is not a ‘terrorism’ of any sort, nor is about ‘terrorists’ of any kind of violence, it is about money. Sanctions is what brought Iran back to the table. If sanctions are ever imposed, israel is in real trouble.
    I suggest israel focus on making peace because if this gets into a business war, israel will lose, real bad.
    .

    • Helen4Yemen

      Why can’t the European Ashkenazis make peace with their own peoples in Europe and go back home to Europe where they no more face persecution. Give me one good reason why white-Euro-Jews to continue to cling to stolen Arab Palestine? Is it the $38,000,000,000 money that America is showering them with?

      Note: We the people of the region will never accept these foreign European predators on our soil? Why should we made to pay a price for what was totally a European affair?

      • Bishadi

        Go Go BDS. Do you know anything about Yemen? Any people? Shut up on israel. Here do some work: Let me know if those were tactical nukes that were used as bunker busters in yemen? I saw the videos and I am about certain, but I can’t do soil samples and it might be best to give you something to do. Find out.

        • Helen4Yemen

          “Shut up on Israel”? Only in your dreams? Why are you trying to divert attention to Yemen? Why did you fail to answer these questions:

          1-Why can’t the European Ashkenazis make peace with their own peoples in Europe and go back home to Europe where they no more face persecution.

          2- Give me one good reason why white-Euro-Jews to continue to cling to stolen Arab Palestine?

          • Bishadi

            0 ….. because of your name.
            1…. hypotheticals are for the birds
            2 …. I told you why; that stupid hill in Jerusalem.

          • Helen4Yemen

            I am not talking about a stupid hill but about foreign white Europeans colonizing our lands. I am from the region and I refuse for any Europeans to colonize our lands. What has my name got to do with anything?
            Give me one good reason why the European Ashkenazis are still on Arab land since the excuse they used is no more?

            Tell me what connects the German Jew to Palestine more than the German Christian? Isn’t Palestine holy for the Christians as well?

          • Bishadi

            your land? Yemen? That name does not state, ‘I am Palestinian’. Or even ‘Helen4Pals’. R U afraid?
            You need to askaNazi those questions. I told you the underlying theme. (big picture)
            ie… torah/bible/quran have bunches of beliefs regarding the ME (levant). Many tangents exist but the central item is that stupid hill in all three sets of religious dialogue.

          • Helen4Yemen

            Therefore, what you are saying is that the European Ashkenazis used a false excuse of the holocaust when what they really wanted was the ‘hill’? Listen dude: ‘Anti-Semitism’ was totally a European affair since the Arab Jews lived in peace with their Arab brothers. The Ashkenazi were expelled 109 times from Europe vs. zero time from Arab lands z(till 1948). All Yemenis sympathize 100% with their Palestinians brothers. You have failed to answer why the German-Russian-Lithuanian Jews are on Arab land? Give me one good reason?

          • Bishadi

            quote: >>> Helen4Yemen 10 minutes ago <<<… ""Therefore, what you are saying is that the European Ashkenazis used a false excuse of the holocaust when what they really wanted was the 'hill'?""""
            .
            Israel is the worst thing next to holocaust that ever happened to the 'Jews'. The people that you are mad at, are zionist. And that 'hill' is what the term 'zion' is based on.
            .
            IF you are from Palestine, you would know that.

          • Helen4Yemen

            We resent the European leeches on the land of Palestine the same way we resented the French leeches on the land of Algeria and the British leeches on the land of Egypt … and so on. What is funny is that the Ashkenazi-leeches were arriving on the land of Palestine when the French-British-Italian leeches were going home. Funny, very funny!

  • Vinegar Hill

    Shaked has joined with Netanyahu and become a high profile congenital liar. She claims that Israel has a right to exist !! According to international law no country has a “right to exist” let alone demand that another nation recognises this right. She uses this false premise to condemn BDS, a democratic peaceful organisation opposing the brutalities of Israeli violence against the Palestinian people. She uses it to hide behide and deflect criticism of the inhuman treatement of babies, children, women and the eldery within Palestinian society by the Israeli authorities. Shaked is guilty of incitement with her public comments and despicably hides behind her lies to detract from the truth of her actions.

    • Helen4Yemen

      “Israel” has a right to exist but on its own European soil.
      Europe performed ‘Final Solution’ by sending the Euro-Jews
      that they hated to Palestine.

      • Vinegar Hill

        Hello….I think that one could even push the right to exist further and within a legal context Israel seems to be on to a slippery slope and has no right to exist anywhere.

        I would also add to the second sentence that Eurpoe was aided in this effort by Jewish leaders of communities in European countries.

        • Helen4Yemen

          Yes, it was a win-win situation for both white Europeans, the Christians got to get rid of the Jews that they hated so much and the Jews go to gobble up free Arab land. It was a lose-lose for the Arabs.
