Anything Good In Haaretz?



Israel takes over vast Palestinian lands to build new settlement. Takeover from five Palestinian villages is biggest West Bank land appropriation in 30 years, says Peace Now; settlers laud Netanyahu, Ya’alon, government.

    In their minds this is probably justifiable (!!!!). There is no stopping them, this is a slow motion genocide-annexation. They will test the waters step by step to see what they can get away with. So far, so good.

    I don’t think anything else can actually be said about this, it is disgusting and if you support it you are the lowest form of scum.

    The principal difference between an Israeli Peace Plan and an Israeli War Plan, is the amount of people you murder to achieve your goals.

    They say it is due to the killing of the 3 lads yet, according to the Times, they put out a tender last year to build 1,000 homes on the same settlement. I am probably just being cynical in thinking that they are using the deaths as an excuse.

    1. Original Cynical

      The only excuse Israel ever bothers to use is “self defence”! Interestingly, even the shills are quiet on this one. Indefensible.

        They’ll be here, as “bisted” points out, its early yet.

        But if you want I can get the shill ball rolling.

        “Interesting how you critise Israel for taking a bit of land that wasn’t being properly used whilst completely ignoring the fact that Russia is attempting to annexe an entire country – your anti semitism is frankly disgusting” etc. etc.

    I can’t read what their take on Putin is… I wonder if the similarities would ever dawn on them?

    For a country that has suffered greatly in the past they have done an about face and now meted out treatement to Palestinians all on the basis of some false justification.

    The US needs to cut off or vastly reduce the aid provided to Israel when they propose land grabbing measures such as this

    sadly that is unlikely to happen

    What an awful shower.*

    *If the Israeli government would like me to change my tune, they can send a fat cheque via the usual channels.

    Seeing as this is all over sky news and the bbc, why exactly is the front page of Haaretz being posted here?

      Personally, I prefer to get my news on Israel from Haaretz. I find it to be reliable generally. Do you not like Haaretz or something?

    2. rotide

      I dunno, the headline “Anything good in …” is usually followed by an ‘oh’ moment which seems to be missing here. In lieu of an ‘oh’ moment, then this post is just informing us of the land grab but thats front page news anyway. It’s something broadsheet doesn’t normally do.

    Haaretz are pretty good I find. They seem to have no problem publishing things on Israel even when not particularly positive for Israel (although they may be missing that part). Here’s an archived Haaretz article from Feb 2014 detailing Israeli action in Syria and indeed US, Israeli, Saudi, Jordanian, etc.. ‘support’ for the ‘rebels’ in Syria. Yep, the exact same guys driving around the desert in hiluxes chopping heads off.

    Israel, the aggressor. The absolute lieing scum of the earth. Murderous bunch of f**ks bent on the death of another people and the removing of them from their land since 1948.

    Nothing new to see here.
