    The most disappointing aspect of Donald Trump is his acquiescence in the Palestinian genocide and Israels crime against humanity.

    Recent events have shone a spotlight not only on how Israel is intensifying its abuse of Palestinians under its rule, but the utterly depraved complicity of western governments in its actions.

    The arrival of Donald Trump in the White House two-and-a-half years ago has emboldened Israel as never before, leaving it free to unleash new waves of brutality in the occupied territories.

    Western states have not only turned a blind eye to these outrages, but are actively assisting in silencing anyone who dares to speak out.

    It is rapidly creating a vicious spiral: the more Israel violates international law, the more the West represses criticism, the more Israel luxuriates in its impunity.
    With criticism crushed in the west, Israel can enjoy its impunity

    There can be no "Palestinian genocide" as there is no "nation of Palestine" for there to be "indigenous Palestinians". There is no race of "Palestinians".

    Palestine was merely a region, like Appalachia. Most "Palestinians" are descendants of Jordanian refugees.

    Well, of course, your claim that there are no Palestinians is absurd. The Israelis shooting them certainly know who they are. (btw, DNA research is showing that, genetically, the Jews of the Old Testament are more closely related to the Palestinians than to the Ashkenazis.)

    I see no reason to support a hate group such as BDS with documented ties to islamic terrorist groups.

    False tests. Never verified. Because they cannot be verified.

    All to delegitimize the Jews.

    Palestinians are Arabs. Arabs are indigenous of Arabia and they have been invading outside of Arabia since the 7th Century CE.

    Invaders, migrants, to an area the Romans renamed Palestine, which the British chose to use.....for the same reason. To humiliate the Jews.
    The British never meant to allow the Jews to recreate their sovereign nation on their ancient Homeland, because the British learned well the teachings of Christianity against the Jews.

    And the Arabs have learned well the teachings of Christianity and Islam against the Jews.

    THAT is what it is all about.

    Valid Criticism of Israel vs. Antisemitism 101

    upload_2019-8-29_16-13-55.jpeg

    Along with nearly every second word in this post, the phrase "many of them in masks" is nothing but a blatantly obvious attempt to paint the Jewish people as uniquely and irreversibly evil.

    It is not a criticism of Israel's policies, but demonization. (As is the entirety of post).

    I would invite (read: challenge) my "moderate" Team Palestine friends to rewrite this paragraph as a valid criticism of Israeli policy. (Or if you'd like, pick another paragraph).

    Israeli IDF regards the shooting of Palestinians as a sport. It's a crime.

    That long, tedious cut and paste was preceded with something about a ‘genocide”.

    That’s usually a clue that the cut and paste’ee is, you know, pretty clueless,

    “A new low for arch Jew-hater Farrakhan,” Boteach tweeted. “Who has heard of an American going to a foreign country and chanting ‘Death to America?’ Where is Bill Clinton who appeared with him recently, and Barack Obama, photographed with him, and Cory Booker to condemn him?”

    Farrakhan has previously said “powerful Jews are my enemy” and “white folks are going down.”
