New York State Assembly-Reject the unconstitutional anti-BDS bill (A9036)

Submitted by Robin Messing on Sun, 02/07/2016 - 9:11pm

I wrote an article two years ago about an attempt by some of Israel's supporters to pass a blatantly unconstitutional New York State bill  that would punish supporters of BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions.)  The bill failed back then, but its supporters are at it again.  

The Most Moral Army In the World? Part 2

Submitted by Robin Messing on Wed, 10/14/2015 - 6:02am

Last year I wrote about Israel's claim that it has the most moral army in the world. A video from a October 7 showing how the IDF handled stone throwing Palestinians now prompts me to re-examine that claim. Actually, I should modify my statement that the stone throwers were Palestinian. Some of them were actually undercover IDF or border police officers. It is impossible to tell from these videos whether the IDF/border police officers instigated the stone throwing or were merely blending in with a crowd of Palestinians who were already throwing stones.  In either case, watch as an undercover soldier shoots a Palestinian in the leg as he is is being restrained by two fellow officers.
