THIS. The 'anti-semitic' argument is bullshiat
By the definition of antisemitism these fascists use, Haaretz and most Israeli Jews are anti-semites.

I used to do quite a bit of business with an Israeli company.  Their negotiating strategies were....different.

I'd get a quote for them to supply material.  Cost $x
They'd supply about 80% of what I asked for and send me an invoice.
I'm not paying until I get everything
Partial pay the invoice and we will ship you the rest
F you.  Give me my stuff
I FINALLY get all my stuff and they send an invoice for 1.5 times $x
WTF guys no
We had extra shipping costs because it was two shipments
your fault not mine
our material costs went up
sorry but you quoted me a price
fine we'll sue
ok not sure you are going to win
(get's sued)
They lose

I basically was forced into dealing with them 3 times.  Same shiat every time except they only sued me once.  After the first time subsequent quotes were sky high.   At one point there was some distant relative of someone that worked there that moved to the states and they said they wouldn't do business with me unless I hired him.  Is he even an engineer?  No.  GTFO.

I finally told my customer he can either find a different supplier or different consultant because I was OUT.

I can totally see them just walking up to a piece of ground and saying "this is mine now"

veale728: in a thick US accent

If you hear somebody speaking your native tongue... for instance, a person from "Asia"... it's quite often, easily detectable, and as often the attribute of an accent is used colloquially to throw a veil on other ethnocentric values your native born culture may have.

In the context of the story, the guy was also from Brooklyn... which... I don't know.... isn't always a typical American "accent".

Because the 'bad guys' are 'terrorists'.
See, when the 'good guys' come to steal their homes, steal their property, and herd them into ghettoes, sometimes a few resist. Proving they are terrorists, therefore requiring and justifying MORE stealing of homes and herding more of them into camps. Purely in self-defense, mind you.

Gee. People resisting when folks seize their homes, property, and herd them into ghettoes. Where have I heard that before? Warsaw rings a bell. I wonder if this guy in the video and his apologists here considered those folks terrorists as well?

Plenty of people in America describe English people broadly as having a "British" accent instead of a Yorkshire accent, or Leeds, or West Country, etc.  If you're not from there, it can be hard to differentiate.  Even if you can, your readers may not know what that means, so you generalize it at first and add details later if necessary.

Oh, don't get me wrong, the Israeli government is in the wrong here more than in the right, IMHO.  But "My great grandfather's house used to be right where that 20 story building now is so me and my dozen cousins should get ownership of the building and Israeli citizenship" type of thing is never going to happen for a wide variety of obvious reasons.

Except that the whole "ghetto" concept was a Jewish thing. They even today have wire boundaries enclosing Manhattan. Obviously only Orthodox Jews give a shiat about this stuff today but guess what most Settlers are?

You would, but it isn't terribly indicative beyond that.  For instance a lot of people encountering a Georgia drawl would write that as "a thick southern U.S. accent" even outside the U.S.

They're using very similar tactics.

Palestinians barred from entering Israel were issued ID cards with green casings instead of orange to identify them as such. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel​i_​identity_card#ID_card_casing_and_varia​tions)

Might as well slap a Yellow Badge on them.

As an American Jew I think anti-zionism is pro-Semitism, in that I don't want fascist genocidal bullshiat carried out in the name of the Jewish people as a whole. If Israel want that to be what represents them, go ahead and accept the consequences of being a pariah state, but they shouldn't pretend they are representing anything but their own fear and hatred.

Porous Horace: The Palestinians could relocate to Wyoming.


IMHO, if there needs to be a "Jewish State", it should be located in a large chunk of Germany.  But this was a decision that should have been made circa 1946.

Schleswig-Holstein.  A buffer zone, with multiple ports.  That would also satisfy any lingering Danish-German bickering over ownership.

I'm an American, a Jew, a Zionist.
Lived in Israel a few years in the 70's/80's.
I have been struggling for the past few years: Do I keep doing my little bit to try to fix things from the inside, and get Israel to return to the ideal of living in peace and justice with the Palestinians and all other Arabs? Or do I just give up on that version of the Zionist dream?

This particular case has been ongoing since 2001.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheikh_​J​arrah#Property_disputes
In 2001, Israeli settlers moved into a sealed section of the al-Kurd family's house and refused to leave, claiming the property was owned by Jews

Both sides have accused the other of using forged documents to argue their case with the Israeli courts believing the Jews while most others side with the Palestinians.
