Jeff Halper, head of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, said Mr. Barkat’s idea of fairness was “ridiculous”....“In the past 15 years there have been more than a thousand Palestinian homes demolished in East Jerusalem versus absolutely no settler homes,” he said. “In fact, no settlers have ever lost their home in East Jerusalem.”

"The no-win situation facing Israel which ultimately will be forced to acknowledge that suppressing freedoms, especially through the use of military means, cannot succeed. And that apologists who from remote distances, such as Sandton and Cape Town, justify and underwrite such repression, are a huge liability for their cause. Just look at George W Bush and Condoleeza Rice to get a sense of the humiliation they have had to face from Olmert's fury on revelations about the UN Security Council vote."

"....One of Author's best satires, first published in February 2002 - might be timely in view of a fair amount of talk about the next American election..."
Kevin Zeese, an Independent candidate for U.S. Senate from Maryland, is shaking up the Establishment. Despite the “unmatched power” the Israel Lobby exerts over our foreign policy, Zeese is challenging Rep. Ben Cardin to speak out about Israel’s “terror military policy” in Occupied Gaza and Lebanon. Cardin, who is also running for the U.S. Senate in MD, submitted a two sentence reply to Zeese. The people of Maryland deserve better!
"The nature of this government should finally end the pretence that supposed ideological differences between so-called doves and hawks has any relevance in terms of Israeli policy towards the Palestinians; rather, it is an almost entirely artificial division that may have some limited relevance in internal Israeli politics but means nothing as far as Israeli policies towards the Palestinians are concerned. These are driven by a deeper, long-term strategy that remains largely the same regardless of who is in office in Tel Aviv; it is the immediate imperatives of that strategy, depending on circumstances of the time, that define Israeli policy at any time..."
"The Saudi clan with the other major Arab tribes committed an act of treachery by colluding with the imperial forces of Britain against the Islamic state and were complicit in the destruction of it in 1924. Subsequently, they were in turn betrayed by Britain and France as they made a secret pact (Sykes-Picot) to divide up the conquered lands which contributed towards handing over Palestine to the Zionists. Thus, the Saudis were complicit in the creation of the state of Israel."
"Instead of sending people with weapons and heavy artillery, Canada should send an army of peace-makers, teachers, engineers, doctors, and nurses. We should send mine-clearing equipment and have a plan in place to build the best training centres, universities, and hospitals."
"Yesterday we cringed as our cruel enslavers ravished our women, broke the backs of our men and treated our beloved children as worthless creatures fit only to work like donkeys in the endless sun scorched fields. But today in virtually every metropolis, every town or hamlet in America, there are Black men who are the rapists of Black women, the assaulters and murderers of Black men and, yes, even the molesters and killers of Black children."
