This is not about Israel

by Abarmard on

This is not about religion

 This is not about land


This is not about Palestinians

This is about fascism, racism and animal like (sadistic) mentality of many fanatics that threaten the peace and stability of the region. 

Perhaps what happened to many of the Jewish people during the history begins with the statement of "chosen" people, where the "others" took offense. Now we see the reality of what happens when "they" get power.

What would you say if instead the Israelis were to show mercy and love to all humans, below and above!

The problem is Zionism and hopefully not Judaism. I would say based on the historical data that there is no future but to demolish the Israeli state!! That unfortunately sounds very similar to what Ahmadinejad had said about the crimes of the Israel, that it has to be wiped from the pages of history.

apartheid state of Israel must dismantle in the same way the state of south Africa was dismantle. 

Time will show and time will tell. 



Bob Simon you proved that

somehow this got off track and maybe misconstrued?  i don't know.  i'm not defending anyone and i'm not trying to sound anti-anything, arab or otherwise.  i merely was pointing out the 9/11 changed ALOT of things.  it changed the worlds perception of the middle east in general.  it made a bad situation even worse.  i hope no one is taking this as anti-anything.

i would like to point out a general comment or fact that israel occupying palestine isn't a unique situation.  irregardless of the right or wrong, or who's land it is... occupation has been going on for hundreds and thousands of years.  ireland was occupied by the MF brits.  poland was occupied by the nazis.  virtually every people and every land has either occupied or BEEN occupied, including iran.

again, don't take this as support for one side of the other.  i'm just saying that no one should be surprised by an american reaction to terrorism.

peace?????  please?


This is not about Jews but Israel

by Mehrnaz (not verified) on

Shah Hossein, although many Jews do support the actions of the fascist state of Israel because they feel they have to support their "tribe" or they believe the lies they have been fed about their rights to the land of Palestine, or Islam being against Jews, but there are also a large number of Jews both outside and inside Israel (a minority) who are ashamed of these actions and are against what Israel stands for which is an aggressive racist colonial state. This is not a war between Jews and Muslims. Islam is being used as an excuse as is Judaism. If there was no oil in the Middle East Israel would not have been founded and would not have been supported. And if the population of the Middle East and the Palestinians were Christian, then this war would have happened against the Christian population!! We are all sad and disgusted by the actions of Israel and those who support it, mainly the US. But this has nothing to do with Jews, who are themselves victims here. Who wants to be thought of as nasty and hated internationally? Jews are just as good or bad as Muslims are. Many Israeli reservists refused to fight, and it is very brave to hold a different view and defend it when the majority feel differently very passionately. The best way to defend Palestinians is not to fall into the trap of Jews against Muslims.



by Shah Hossein (not verified) on

After seen the way Israels treat the Palestinians I have no sympathy for the Jews.Sadam Hossein was the worst person I ever knew This Isaels are worst then Sadam.Can somebody please tell me why is it OK to kill Moslam people?Is it because we don't speak English well and we can't defend ourselves in the West?

No anonymous Fish "terrorists" applied before 9/11 too

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

And before 9/11, the western media did a great job of doing good PR for Israel over the suicide bombings. Arabs wearing scarves and back packs were always looked at suspiciously, they still faced stereotypes. 9/11 definitely worsened it, but isn't it nice who is paying the price? Always the little people. That time is up. The world is fed up with Israel. They have the power and the money (thanks to all this support), to maturely deal with this. Treating Palestinians like this is a shot in the foot. Are you surprised people turn to Hamas? Are you surprised Hamas turns to Iran. WHen you shut out a group like this, don't be surprised that they turn to desperate, deadly tactics to be a pain in Israel's ass.

What a waste these settlers are

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

Just build and re-build just to make a political point. Don't worry about contributing to society, just do an order from an imaginary voice. 

Enjoy the monsters you've created Israel. Enjoy every bit of it! THis is what happens when you use religion to do politics and governing. God is very reliable, eh? He's solving all your problems, eh? Jews v. Jews isn't even the beginning of this. What a failure this state has become.  


Come and defend your people

Tell everyone here that these are justified because if not then we are anti Semite.

I want to know why Russian woman (The fat bitch in the film) has a right to live in the land that she picks the soil?
Doesn't that reminds people of Nazi Fanatics?

Why Nazis were better you asked? Well at least most of the population did not agree with their authoritarian regime, while most Israelis in Occupied Palestine would agree with their regime and their inhumane ideologies and actions.

I think your brain is frozen my friend! I don`t know about you but I would rather die before I share my bedroom with occupiers day and night and see my kids are only allowed to come in and out of the house by some guy who doesn`t even have a nice But I guess anonymous Fish doesn`t mind...wink wink...perhaps he/she has a thing for as it comes for another comment by someone else about such a fan club for Arabs? well I amnot anti-Arab, I am glad to report you that. Arabs, jews, persians...we are all humans and our great father Kourosh told us and also acted upon it. Freed not only the Jews but many other nationalities from slavery, a move that was not popular at that time! you either live and learn, or you decide to think was it chicken or was it egg that came to existant first? one human is more valuble than the all of the holy land regardless of race or religion affiliation!


Bob Simon's report on settlers

by Mehrnaz (not verified) on

Dear Anonymous, thank you for posting this most revealing and heart-breaking video: //

Israel is the greatest enemy of itself by killing its own humanity by its inhumane treatment of the Palestinians and the greatest enemy of Jews by using them and abusing them in this colonialist, apartheid and barbaric project. It is an offense to intellect that so to speak "fair-minded" people in the West (including the Jews) can see this (and thousands upon thousands of other evidence) and continue supporting this fascist state with its sick pretense to 'democracy'.

Is there still a fool out there believing Israel is scared and wants peace?! Israel does not want peace, it wants all of Palestine and more ... based on terror.


Comparing Yello dog with a Jackal

by choghok on

A documentary was broadcasted 2 days ago since it was the holocaust day. It was about some jews who survived the holocaust and migrated to South Africa.

One of them gor upset when interviewer compared Nazi Germany with south Africa. She said:

"As horrible as it was in South Africa if a black person would hold passport, married within his own race, did not participate in any "terroristic" activities then he would have been left alone, there was no systematic plan to remove all blacks from SA".

The blacks would live in overpopulated places designated by the white europeans. The white Europeans that had left europe because religious prosecution (They were calvinists) for South Africa and South Africa was their promise land by god.

Do I need to draw more parallells or can you see yourself?


If you change the word european with zionist and black with palestinian above you would have understand.

There are some small differences in between but there are som small differences between yollow dog and a jackal.

wow... didn't realize there was such support

by anonymous fish on

for arabs from iranians..:-)

Majid jaan.  if you're referring to bush's tea party at crawford ranch, fine.  but i'm not bush.  dig?  i stick by what i said.  irregardless of what was said prior to 9/11... it is indeed a fact that 9/11 was carried out by arabs and it was a terrorist act.  you can make the connection yourself... or not.  if you'd prefer me to say saudis... so be it.

observers... are you implying that Ben-Gurin was part of the 9/11 plot?  if you recognize that he was not, then i would say your comment is moot. he's not the first and certainly not going to be the last leader (including bush, ahmadinejad, and a host of others) to spew provocative or war-like rhetoric.  you think arafat's message was one of peace?


The most horable people are the Israels

by Shah Hossein (not verified) on

Israels are not jewish they are eastern urapian and russians who killed the jews.

Fattolah is correct. In fact that act of terrorism and suicide attacks was introduced in the region by the elder zion himself; "We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population." -David Ben-Gurion, May 1948, to the General Staff. From Ben-Gurion, A Biography, by Michael Ben-Zohar, Delacorte, New York 1978.

My jewish hi school buddies use to pick on me with this quote back in the late 70's. Go figure!

David Ben-Gurion was prime minister of the state of Israel when it was founded in May 1948

Americans call Arabs terorrists................LOL

All of the "Arabs" or some of them?

I'm sure King of Saudi Arabia (where 17 out of 19 hijackers were from) and his gang (King of Jordan, Amir of Kuwait, Amir of Dubai, Hosni Mobarak, ......) are not considered "Arabs" then! right?

Oops.........They exchange oil money for arms ! maybe THAT's why!


it was one 60 minutes best pieces ever.

good job by Bob Simon


Exciting - Israeli control is breaking down

by Mehdi on

We can see that it is not true that nothing can be done to bring down oppressive mentality ruling Israel. The works of multitude of people demonstrating in streets around the world and educating themselves instead of letting the slave media tell them what to think, has resulted in truth to actually show up on mainstream media. I say, stop the violence and work harder on spreading the truth. Talk to everyone and expose the lies. It works!


XerXes , what makes you say Zionists are owner of the land?

by Ali Sefati (not verified) on

what about the right of birth and citizenship for millions of Palestinians who were born there so did their parents and grand parents back to dozens of generations?

what about the right of return? So being a Zionist gives you the right of the land? What kind of logic is that?

If you are basing your argument on Torah or Bible, then how different is your statement than the islamistis if you think you are so different.

Crime is crime. Both Israelis and Palestinians should be held responsible for killing innocents!

anonymous fish

no Benyamin

by anonymous fish on

i'm pretty sure that the reason most americans call arabs terrorists is because of september 11th.

i'm sure you remember that day... right?



by XerXes (not verified) on

and their followers try to say that Zionism is harsh and doesn't care about human life. How pethetic. In Reality, Zionists are the owner of the land and very democratic.

This is dedicated to the lovers of Israel. Enjoy it and feel the superiority all over your veins.

Interestingly enough, when the so called "government" came to take the settlement land (all a show, since they can easily prevent it) they reacted similar to the backward Palestinians. How can that be?

Zionism is Terrorism.



by Benyamin (not verified) on

This is the first time I see a report that is in favour of the Arabs and revealing the truth about the Israelie government! I am outraged and saddend as how humans inflict such conditions and pain on each other in the name of GOD???

there is saying in the USA: "live free or die"
but I guess if you are an Arab and you decide to live by that motto which incidently is an American one they call you"terrorist"!

Artificial Intelligence

Religious Fundamentalism

by Artificial Intelligence on

From both sides is the biggest obstacle to Peace.

Israel will pay a very high price for allowing these nut jobs/zealots to settle in the West Bank. Additionally, the form and shape of Palestinian resistance, such as suicide bombings which resulted in the killing of innocent civilians, has not helped the situation.  

To take away Palestinian property and lively hood in the name of god is just pure madness.
