28. Dezember 2015 - American Herald Tribune, Miko Peled:

"What is Israel supposed to do?"
Israel is being attacked by Arab countries that want to destroy it,
so what is Israel supposed to do?
Israeli soldiers are being assaulted by Palestinian terrorist with knives,
what are they supposed to do?
Iran has nuclear capabilities and it wants to wipe Israel off the map,
so what is Israel supposed to do?
Hamas is determined to kill Israeli civilians,
so what is Israel supposed to do?
And the list of things that make it impossible for Israel to do anything but arm itself and then attack and kill Palestinians goes on and on. So there is no hope, and no reason to expect change.

Before the Israeli Right Rejoices Over Paris
The Israeli right will say: We told you so. That is how the Palestinians are, that is how the Muslims are - bloodthirsty animals. The conclusion: There is no partner. This is of course a propagandist house of cards.
Just before the right in Israel begins to celebrate, we must tell them: There is no connection whatsoever between the child with a knife from Hebron and the French Muslim with a suicide bomb in Paris.

Netanyahu Is Not the First Israeli Politician to Distort the Holocaust for Selfish Ends
Long before Netanyahu's Hitler-Mufti comments, David Ben-Gurion and Menachem Begin made extensive use of the Holocaust for political and propaganda purposes.
As the son of a prominent historian, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should not have said what he did about the “decisive role” of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, in the process of destroying the Jews of Europe.

MSNBC, Martin Fletcher Disavow Image of Palestine Being Wiped Off the Map
A recent sequence of events reveals what happens when U.S. media depart from the pro-Israel narrative.
Following an unusually honest report on Israel-Palestine, MSNBC Live backpedaled to Israeli talking points that were both illogical and uninformed. Let us look at what happened.

The Hitler-mufti Debacle: Netanyahu and His War on Facts
It seems that for the prime minister, serving a fleeting political interest was worth the price of minimizing Adolf Hitler's determination to destroy Europe's Jews.

In Mufti Speech, Netanyahu Showed His Obsessive Hatred of the Palestinians
Israel's PM is gripped by an obsession in which even Hitler, the archetype of evil and Jew-hatred, has to play second fiddle to Mahmoud Abbas and his Palestinian predecessors.

Apologies to the Fuhrer
Netanyahu’s attempt to place the mufti at the center of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict shows just how bankrupt the extremists in Israel have become. It’s a declaration of all-out war on the Palestinian people. It’s ‘us or them.’

9. Oktober 2015 - Ha'aretz, Gideon Levy:

Even Gandhi Would Understand the Palestinians' Violence
The injustice can go on for many more years. Why? Because Israel is stronger than ever and the West is letting it run wild.
Through the haze of self-righteousness, media propaganda, incitement, distraction, brainwashing and victimhood of the past few days, the simple question returns in full force: Who’s right?

Iran Is Not The Threat
Benjamin Netanyahu’s name is in the headlines again, this time along with the news of the Iran deal. He rejects the agreement, he called it a disastrous historic mistake and he did not miss the opportunity to say that Israel will defense itself, etc.
Two questions must be raised in light of Netanyahu’s outrage:
The first is why?
And the second is why does anyone care?

20. März 2015 - The Hill, Miko Peled:

Time to give Palestinians their country back

More than the threat of war on Iran, Netanyahu’s re-election is a call for war on Palestinians everywhere. It is a call for war on human rights and international law. It is a mandate for the Israeli government to murder Palestinians. It gives Netanyahu license to continue Israel's seven-decade policy of racism and apartheid towards the people from whom they stole the land. It is also a call for people of conscience to impose boycotts and sanctions to divest and to isolation Israel. No more business as usual - it is time for outrage, for action, the type of action that brought down apartheid in South Africa. It is a call to finally allow Palestinians to have their country back.

Netanyahu’s Campaign Stop in DC!

Netanyahu’s campaign stop in Washington DC turned out to be a huge success. Hours and hours of coverage on CNN and the other networks, which showered him with praise and had his images plastered all over our television sets, and all for free, absolutely free! Nor could he have hoped or paid for better coverage in the printed media. For several days Netanyahu’s face graced the front pages of the major newspapers in America.

Netanyahu addresses "Israeli Occupied Territory"

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came to Washington to address "Israeli Occupied Territory", the designation given by Pat Buchanan to the US Congress. This event has been cooked up between the GOP House Speaker John Boehner, an intimate enemy of President Obama, and the Israeli ambassador behind the President's back. This move by a foreign leader to bypass the President of the United States in order to address Congress is unprecedented and bold. It's a calculated insult to the United States. Netanyahu's address was also directed at the Israeli people. In two weeks, Israel will elect a new parliament and Netanyahu wanted to thwart attention from a poor performance of his right-wing government.

True? Untrue?

Hezbollah: The Global Footprint of Terror
or a pretext for war against Iran?

In February 2008, a high-ranking Hezbollah leader, Imad Mughniyah, was assassinated in Damascus. Everybody assumed that it was done by the infamous Israeli Mossad. After seven years, it was reported that the CIA did the killing and Mossad delivered only the parameters. This spin doesn't surprise anyone. Aren't both organization involved in criminal acts all around the world? The question that immediately arises is; why now?
