PBS stations around the U.S. were scheduled to show a riveting new Frontline documentary, “One Day in Gaza,” but at the last minute PBS pulled it.

The film is missing important context about the issue, but it includes footage that Americans, as Israel’s top funders, should see – including a young, unarmed teen being shot in her head.

BBC, the coproducer of the film, broadcast it to British viewers. We are posting it below so that Americans can also view it.

Recently, hundreds of PBS stations around the United States were scheduled to broadcast a powerful new Frontline documentary: “One Day in Gaza.” But viewers tuning in found that it had been replaced by a slightly updated Frontline report on Robert Mueller that had been broadcast two months before and had been streaming online ever since.

PBS no longer has the Gaza film listed on its schedule.

The documentary was to be aired on the one-year anniversary of events that took place on May 14, 2018, when tens of thousands of men, women, and children in Gaza gathered with the intention of deploying the tactics Gandhi had used in freeing India from British control.

The demonstration that day was the 8th march in what Gazans named the Great March of Return.

Palestinians months earlier had announced their plan for a mass, peaceful demonstration in which Gazans would march for an end to Israel’s crippling 12-year blockade and, especially, for their right to return to homes stolen by Israel in order to create a Jewish state. Palestinians’ right to return to their homes and ancestral land is well established in international law. This fundamental right, affirmed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is at the center of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Israel had responded by immediately deploying a hundred snipers.

In the first seven weekly marches, Israeli forces killed about 50 of the marchers and injured over 7,000.

During the 8th march on May 14, the day depicted in the film, Israeli forces killed 60 more and shot 1,000 – an average of one person every 30 seconds.

While this was going on, a glittering Israeli celebration was taking place as a new, transplanted U.S. Embassy opened in Jerusalem, a city that Israel illegally annexed following the Six-Day War that Israel launched in 1967.

Who were the protesters?

Over 70 percent of Gazans are from families that Israel forced out in its founding war to establish “the Jewish state.” Israel confiscated their homes and land and has prevented them from returning ever since. This violates international law.

For 12 years Israel has perpetrated a strangling blockade of Gaza, causing 52 percent unemployment, hunger, the kind of malnutrition that causes growth stunting in children, and increasing hopelessness.

And this blockade is just the most recent one.

On April 15, 2002 the UN Food and Agriculture Organization reported, “The total blockade has paralysed the Palestinian economy… it is now in a deep recession, with millions of people severely impoverished and extremely food insecure.”

For many years it has been tremendously difficult, sometimes impossible, for Gazans to leave Gaza, and for others to enter it. As a result, many people describe Gaza as the largest open-air prison on earth.

While U.S. news coverage in general, and the Frontline documentary in particular, emphasize the rockets fired by Gaza’s diverse resistance groups, the fact is that Israeli violence preceded the rockets and has greatly exceeded their impact.

In the past year alone, Israeli forces have killed at least 293 Gazans, while Gazans have killed 6 Israelis. Palestinian rockets from Gaza, which are largely homemade, have killed a total of about 40 Israelis in the whole time they’ve been being shot, while during the same time period Israeli forces have killed over 6,000 Gazans. (See this Timeline of deaths and this Israeli source for more info.)

The film says that Israel “fought three major conflicts with Hamas,” but doesn’t mention that during these, Israeli forces killed about 3,600 Gazans (many of them women and children), while Gazan fighters killed approximately 80 Israelis, the large majority of them soldiers.

Powerful but flawed

The Frontline documentary One Day in Gaza is an extremely powerful, if flawed, record of the events of May 14, 2018.

It provides Israeli views, Palestinian views, and riveting, often tragic footage of the day’s events. However, perhaps because of its striving to be “balanced,” or due to constraints imposed by Israel’s powerful lobbies in England and the U.S., the film often leans toward the Israeli narrative and obscures some important points.

The Israeli interviewees in the film are calm, articulate, and seem well-trained in presenting their talking points. Perhaps this is not surprising given that one is an army spokesman, a second is a high-ranking officer, and two are Americans who immigrated to Israel (although this fact is not revealed in the film).

Not interviewed in the film are any of the members of the Israeli group, Breaking the Silence, composed of former Israeli soldiers who describe widespread military practices of gratuitous violence and cruelty.

Below is some background on two of the Israelis featured in the film:

Col. Kobi Heller

Perhaps because of time constraints, Col. Heller’s, background and political persuasion are left out of the film.

While Heller comes across as reasonable, professional, and reluctant to commit the murders we see from his troops, his resumé suggests that there is more to his story.

Heller is a member of Israel’s Religious Zionist movement, a group that has become known for its zealotry and sometimes extremist views of Jewish supremacy. He is called a “kippa shruga,” a term for the type of Jewish fundamentalist known for believing that Arabs should be expelled from Israel and for opposition to any Palestinian state, no matter how small.

It turns out that he has a previous connection to Gaza. Heller is a settler who studied at a religious Zionist yeshiva in a Gaza settlement that combined religious studies with military training. In 2005 the yeshiva was moved to Israel when the Israeli government forcibly expelled the settlers. This caused fierce objections in the settler movement. Many in the army were outraged at this action.

Heller is from Israel’s notorious Golani brigade, increasingly a bastion of the Israeli far right. An Israeli professor states: “The officer corps of the elite Golani Brigade is now heavily populated by religious right-wing graduates of the preparatory academies.” The New York Times reports that many Israelis are concerned at this development, particularly since a booklet was handed out to soldiers during Israel’s 2009 assault on Gaza that contained a rabbinical edict against showing the enemy mercy.

The Times reports: “The rabbinate brought in a lot of booklets and articles and their message was very clear: We are the Jewish people, we came to this land by a miracle, God brought us back to this land and now we need to fight to expel the non-Jews who are interfering with our conquest of this holy land.”

Adele Raemer

An Israeli woman featured in the film is Adele Raemer. She is described as an “Israeli grandmother” who lives two kilometers from the Gaza fence.

In the film she describes her fear of Gazans who wish to return to their homes in Israel. The film does not mention that Raemer is originally an American from the Bronx.

In 1975 she immigrated to Israel and took up residency in the Nirim kibbutz on the border with Gaza. Since the area had originally possessed no history of Jewish habitation, the Zionist movement had established it in 1946 to create a Jewish presence in the Negev in order to claim it as part of a future Jewish state.

Raemer has written that her life in the kibbutz is “95 percent heaven.” Despite being located in a desert, it has green grass and a swimming pool. A little over a mile away, Gazans are enduring a water crisis that has caused Gazan children to suffer from diarrhea, kidney disease, and impaired IQ.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad leaders

The film shows the the flaws and sometimes fatal logistical failures of Hamas and Islamic Jihad leaders during the Great March and says that Hamas has “refused to recognize Israel.”

However, the film doesn’t include the fact that Hamas has offered Israel a decade-long truce, that it is Israel that breaks the truces, and that Hamas has said it was willing to accept a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders.

In reporting these leaders’ flaws and mistakes, the film fails to mention the extreme difficulties Gaza’s leaders face, including the fact that by assuming this role they face very possible assassination by Israel. Many resistance members have been blown to pieces by Israeli drones.

Those who survive are trying to run a resistance movement, deploy efficient logistical support, and make wise decisions during chaotic conditions in one of the world’s most isolated and longest-besieged enclaves.

Most important, the Palestinian journalist and peace activist who originated the march and is interviewed in the film, Ahmed Abu Artema, says that the film attributed far too much significance to Hamas, and neglected the “primary role played by civil society activists in Gaza.”

In a detailed critique of the film, he writes: “The documentary did not show the reality of the prison that Gaza has become. One shot of the cattle market that exists at the Erez crossing would have been enough to convey the reality of this cage, where there is no freedom of movement, no economic growth, no future prospects – no hope.”

The U.S. connection

The film also fails to inform American viewers of our connection to Israeli actions – that the U.S. gives Israel over $10 million per day. (The U.S. has given Israel on average 7,000 times more per capita than it has given other people around the world.)

And in its framing, the film neglects the fact that a prime driver of Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy is billionaire campaign donor Sheldon Adelson, who attended the celebration with his Israeli wife Miriam. (Adelson once said that he regretted serving in the U.S. army rather than the Israeli one – video here.)

Despite its flaws, Americans should see it

But the film cannot do everything, and it does some things extremely well. Overall, it’s not difficult to see why Israel partisans would not wish it broadcast to Americans.

It shows footage that the American public almost never sees. It was this kind of footage that eventually led to Americans ending the Vietnam war.

One of the main take-aways from the film is the extreme ruthlessness of Israeli forces.

Fully armed Israeli soldiers from one of the most powerful armies on earth are seen targeting multitudes of thin, unarmed men, women, and children. The film shows Israeli snipers shooting people in the head, in the back, in the legs.

It shows a youth whose leg was amputated and reports that many of the demonstrators lost limbs that day. (The UN recently reported that 1,700 Gazans shot by Israeli snipers are currently at risk of amputations.)

While U.S. news reports often downplay these actions, the film shows them in all their tragic and horrific reality.

The film shows people who are just standing there suddenly being picked off by snipers. It shows a 14-year-old girl chatting with a friend, then suddenly being shot in the head. And it shows her little brother, who had been with her, later describing how his sister had been killed. This is not footage that Israeli hawks wish American audiences to view.

Another takeaway from the film is the poverty of Gaza’s imprisoned population, particularly compared to the gathering in Israel to celebrate the U.S. Embassy move to Jerusalem.

Amid the expensive suits and fashionable dresses, American-born Israeli official Michael Oren bemoans the fact that the situation in Gaza has blemished his enjoyment of the festive occasion.

This contrast with Gaza is stark.

With no powerful lobby to represent them and little clout in U.S. media, Palestinians are at the mercy of Israel. The film shows that many in Gaza feel they have little to lose after years of escalating oppression. Some voice impossible dreams that had motivated them, that they could recover their lost homes. Some simply hoped to see them. A few voice the fury that results from dispossession, imprisonment, and brutalization.

While this goes unremarked in the film, there are indications that the “tear gas” Israeli drones poured on people may have been particularly virulent. In the film we see some people convulsing, and one man is delirious. This seems reminiscent of a mysterious gas used in Gaza in early 2001 that caused similar symptoms (reported in the James Longley documentary Gaza Strip).

Courage

While Israeli soldiers shelter behind diverse barriers, armed with advanced weaponry and guided by female soldiers watching it all on TV screens in a remote bunker, it is the Palestinians who demonstrate incredible, sometimes tragic courage.

We see them without weapons, without body armor, without helmets, without uniforms. Old and young, men and women, strong and disabled, they wield slingshots, wave flags.

They’re out in an open field, Israeli forces in front of them, drones overhead. When yet another demonstrator is shot, the blood pouring out, they run to rescue him or her, and then sometimes they, too, are shot. Yet they continue.

The contrast between the Israeli and Palestinian women taking part in the day’s hostilities is acute. Israeli female soldiers are far away, watching the action on computer monitors, telling soldiers when and where to shoot. Their faces are blurred to keep their identities secret. One seems to question what she’s doing, but there’s no indication that she stops.

Gazan women join the mass gathering. They’re out are in the open field, marching, carrying flags, helping the injured… and getting shot.

Theft of a nation

For over 70 years, Israel has gotten away with its astoundingly massive theft of the land and homes of the non-Jews it dispossessed to create an ethnically defined nation, and its decades of violence to maintain this ethnic cleansing. A Palestinian historian has validly termed this the Palestinian Holocaust.

One Day in Gaza shows some of Israel’s millions of victims, their attempt to be free, and what’s being done to them. Americans are not supposed to see that.

While Artema’s biting critique of the film is valid and necessary, it is useful to be aware that for many Americans much of the film will be revelatory.

PBS’s action

PBS’s cancellation, however, has prevented Frontline‘s more than 4.6 million viewers from seeing it.

While PBS calls itself “a trusted window to the world,” someone at PBS shuttered the window on One Day in Gaza.

PBS spokespeople state that Gaza will be broadcast at some point in the coming months, but say they don’t know when. Since the film’s scheduled broadcast date was specifically focused on the one-year anniversary of the day it depicts, it seems odd for PBS to be so unconcerned about broadcasting it in a timely manner. BBC, on the other hand, aired the film on May 13.

According to a Frontline statement, One Day In Gaza was pulled because Frontline “decided to air a timely update to our documentary on the Mueller investigation.” The Mueller investigation report had been broadcast on March 16 and 17 and has been available online ever since. It can be viewed here.

The updated version that bumped One Day in Gaza can be seen here. The update consists of a few minutes added at the end of the report. This new information had already been reported widely in U.S. media, including PBS’s own primetime news program News Hour.

PBS vs local stations

PBS wields considerable power. A national study rated PBS “the most-trusted institution in America.”

Its Frontline program claims to be “American television’s top long-form news and current affairs series.”

According to its website, PBS is a “near-universal media service, available in 9-of-10 U.S. television households. For many Americans, public television is their connection to the world.”

PBS emphasizes the alleged independence of its nearly 350 television and radio stations, stating they are among “the last locally owned media organizations in the country.”

However, in reality it appears that local stations have less control than this implies. When someone at PBS prevented the broadcast of Gaza, that decision prevented all the local stations around the country from airing it.

The fact is that local PBS stations do not have independent access to the film – even though it received funding from the stations.

While most Americans may think that PBS is a public institution, given its name – Public Broadcasting Service” – it is not. It is, in its own words, “a private, nonprofit media enterprise.” One that is, however, largely funded by American taxpayers.

Its ownership is a bit convoluted and multi-layered. While it says it is “owned by its 350 member stations,” its funding comes from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. CPB is another private nonprofit, but 95 percent of CPB’s funding comes from the federal government. Most of this money is then given to the member stations.

Phone calls to a PBS station, KQED in San Francisco, revealed that KQED had received many calls complaining about the cancellation and asking when Gazawould be shown. KQED’s customer service representative explained that none of this is in KQED’s hands.

“We Answer to You”

Frontline has refused to divulge who was involved in the decision to pull Gaza. It seems likely that its Senior Editorial Team – consisting of Raney Aronson-Rath, Executive Producer; David Fanning, Founder and Executive Producer at Large; and Andrew Metz, Managing Editor – would have been involved. Fanning has previously been accused of censoring content regarding Israel/Palestine, a charge he denies.

Frontline‘s website announces: “We answer to no one but you.”

It’s unclear who the “you” is. It does not appear to be the member stations who fund it, or the many people whose federal dollars financed the film and wish to see it.

While PBS holds on to the film and fails to release it, people in Gaza continue their David against Goliath struggle.

On May 15th, Gazan men, women, and children again protested, and Israel again unleashed its heavily armed military, injuring 144, including 49 children. The same day, Israeli soldiers also fired at fishermen who were fishing off the coast of Gaza, injuring one of them – a frequent occurrence that Americans rarely, if ever, see on the News Hour.

And so it goes.

Perhaps at some point PBS/Frontline management will decide that the massacre of 60 people and the shooting of a thousand others in a single day is important enough to merit scheduling the film – particularly when the perpetrator has received more U.S. tax money than any other nation in the world.

This post will be updated if PBS schedules a new broadcast date.

It will be updated again if PBS actually shows it.

  2. It’s very heartening to see Alison Weir here. She is the perfect example of the sort of person who ought to be published here. Having seen her speak, beset by Zionazi flying monkeys, and having heard her smeared and vilified for daring to articulate incontrovertible facts about Israeli state crimes against humanity, I want to thank Ron Unz again.

  3. First… I suggest we salute Ms. Weir for bringing this censored video to world and, hopefully, American, attention.
    After just now watching the piece it is obvious that this video is a Zio- propaganda piece of the highest order. Not surprising since the BBC and the PBS have sold their soul and journalistic integrity to Israel long ago. It’s so sad the British people are collectively forced to pay approx. $175.00 per year to support arguably the worst international news service on the planet. Worse, I wonder what Joan Kroch would say about her $800 million donation to PBS being used for this mockery of journalism.

    The narration of this video is so full of bold faced lies its as if Bibi scripted it himself.

    Kudos to Ms. Weir for exposing the interviews of Israelis as the mercenaries they actually are.

    I hope that EVERYONE who reads this article will FB it and send it out far and wide. This is the only way to counter this censorship. Despite the flaws in the video, it shows what cannot be denied… the “Chosen People” are in reality the barbarians of our civilized world….

  4. Excellent article by an outstanding peace activist. In fact, Ms. Weir is far more than just a ‘peace activist’. Weir is learned. Weir is perceptive. Weir is tenacious. Weir is courageous. And her task is uniquely onerous.

    Alison Weir dares to challenge the sanctified disinformation that rains down upon us each and every day. She digs for the truth in an empire of deception. She is undaunted.

    Weir speaks for the powerless and the nearly forgotten. In their liberation might come our own. It’s surely possible. Thank you, Alison.

    I tried to view the documentary. It said, “Not available your location.” (USA, 1 PM EST, 5/25/2019) I did an Internet search and found myself on Youtube; the video had been removed as a copyright violation. I tried the BBC. I needed to register and establish an account to watch. I did so, only to be informed that only people in the UK could watch the documentary due to “rights issues”.

    This is a classical exercise in watching the MSM yet again throw another piece of the puzzle down the memory-hole when it exposes and embarrasses the Jewish state and their global enablers. What the Jews don’t realize is that this kind of authoritarian behavior (increasingly exposed through the Internet) is fanning anti-Jewish sentiments on a worldwide basis.

    Jews tried the same strategy in Weimar Germany and it brought them to ruin. Now, they continue to attempt the same media-controlled coverups in Britain and the United States with overly dramatic appeals to the Holocaust and anti-semitism to quiet opposition … so that they can continue to operate hidden and unaccountable in the shadows in both Israel and abroad.

    Consider: Perhaps a nationalist is by definition anti-semitic for good reason. Nationalism is antithetical to Jewish globalist ideologies, which include capitalism, communism, the call for a one-world government camouflaged as trade treaties similar to what generated the EU, and, now, Postmodern Marxism as a call for intersectional diversity among world populations enforced by the police powers of the state. Their goal is to systematically destroy our liberties and our culture in the service of their (((New World Order))).

  6. I once thought of PBS as a trusted , independent source for the news and commentary , then a friend told me about the strange demolition of building number 7 at the World Trade Center on 9/11 and referred to PBS as the Pentagon Broadcasting Service , he added that it was not to be trusted and was part of the 9/11 coverup .Therefore it is not surprisng that it succumbed to pressure and pulled the Frontline documentary on Gaza .

Why? Because they were never – ever taught that the Trotsky’s , Lenin’s, and a thousand others were bought and paid for by the Zionists in NY, Switzerland, and Europe. They were taught that the Zionist Bolsheviks were a political party that founded Communism. They are a trained society that does not make waves, and that’s why they were given a free pass to Israel. America seems to be in the same boat – a trained society – that won’t make waves – especially when they are not given the information called – Pravda.

    Not to quibble, but we have been Palestinians for a bit longer than that. Here’s a start.:

    Mr. Roosevelt … resumed the Wilson policies and in that spirit approached the major problem of America’s future at that moment: namely, whether the forces represented by the great Jewish immigration from Eastern Europe, which had occurred in the six decades following the Civil War, should or should not govern America. All competent authorities had observed, usually with foreboding, the rapid rise of this new problem in American life, and had depicted the effects of the transplantation to American soil of a large population-mass which, under its religious directors, [312] rejected the concept of “the melting-pot” and of “assimilation”.

  33. The Jewish culture prides itself with having chutzpah – in your face audacity. The Mosaad with deception. Combine the two and you get Zionism.

    The Zionists are famous for secretly creating problems and then coming along and offering the solution, which always involves furthering their own advancement. They used their huge international capital mostly from London in the late 1800’s to take over the US banking industry to create financial havoc and destabilization, and then in 1913 set up the Federal Reserve for complete hegemony and control over US finances and currency. The Rothschild Zionists funded both sides in starting WWI and then in 1916 they betrayed Germany which was proposing a just peace, and they brought the US into the war for Britain to continue it for two more years with further huge slaughter. In return the Brits promised to create a separate Jewish state in Palestine. Following that war Britain remained virtually bankrupted and Germany was subjected to crippling reparations, all to pay back the financiers who bled everyone and vastly increased their wealth and power. The Masonic/Zionist hand is behind every major war and atrocity in the 20th century. Their abuses have carried on into this century from 9/11 to the Iraqi, Syrian and Yemeni wars and now we face a war with Iran all for the same ends.

    The pattern of using and abusing wealth and power to cause economic and political destabilization in targeted resource-rich or geographically-strategic weaker nations is not unique to the Zionists. Every empire appears to have used such means to ascend. The Brits mastered the craft wherever they went. When it comes to the Middle East we see war after war and slaughter after slaughter, and it is because we now in this age “see it”, we therefore “know it”, and we realize that we cannot keep behaving this way.

    Henceforth, Britain will do the bidding of her real masters;she

    her faith, her patriotism, traditions, civilisation. She grants the “ returned ”

    Christian population, and within a short time Britain is ruled by a
    Jewish Prime Minister, Disraeli, first and foremost a Jew and the
    flunkey of the powerful Rothschild financiers.

    One of the consequences of this disastrous political mistake is the
    transformation of the national attitude of Great Britain and her
    colonies into that of the British Empire. Disraeli who inspired it
    knew what he was scheming for, the British people did not. But with
    him, Zionism is carried up to the very heights of the British Throne, a
    Zionist World Empire is on the high road to realisation.

    World Zionist organization, or Jewish agency, or Alliance Israelite Universelle— whatever name it takes, it is at bottom always the Kahal with its eighteen centuries of accumulated experience. Its aims and principles, whether shrouded in the mysticism of the Talmud or bluntly stated in the Protocols, are the same to-day as under the Roman empire. But in recent years the technical improvements in its methods of operating3 and the debility of national governments32 have advanced its cause with singular rapidity. Just fifty years ago, a German wrote:33 ” Russia is the last defence against the Jews, and its surrender is only a matter of time. The elastic spirit of Jewish intrigue will crush Russia in a revolution, such as the world has never seen the like. When it has overthrown Russia, it will have nothing to fear from any quarter; when it has seized in Russia all the offices of state as it has done with us, then the Jews will openly undertake the destruction of western civilization, and this ” last hour ” of condemned Europe will strike within a hundred or a hundred and fifty years at the latest, since the march of events moves more rapidly in our era than in preceding centuries.”

    Something similar happened in northern Europe, where buildings that were the largest in the world were abandoned (possibly due to disease) and the population collapsed before the Yamnaya arrived.

    Riddle of the Jew’s Success

    While searching for a pdf of Rosenberg’s, “The Track … “, I came across this. Sorry I cannot get the link to function.:

    [MORE]

    It is interesting that the burnings of Jewish books that began in the 13th century were in fact initiated by Jews themselves who opposed the “heretical” writings of Moses Maimonides. Similarly, the burnings of the Talmud that followed were instigated primarily by converted Jews, who showed the same intolerance in their new-found Catholicism as in their previous Judaism. Rosenberg goes so far as to ascribe the anti-scientific persecutions of the Roman Catholic Church against thinkers like Galilei and Bruno as being due to its adoption of a Jewish intolerance within its own ecclesiastical system. Indeed, during the Inquisition, the most feared persecutors, including Torquemada, were converted Jews: “The symbolism of the Catholic faith they naturally left aside but the joy in religious persecutions found in the converted Jews its most typical representatives.”

    The second part of the work considers the history of the Jews in Europe and…it also notes the importance of the involvement of the Jews in the developing Masonic movement in Europe.
    Rosenberg begins by noting the similarity of the experiences in different European states where Jews were admitted. At first they are accepted by their host nations with little reserve, then they begin their inborn exploitative usurious business to hold princes and populace under their control and finally they suffer anti-Semitic persecutions or expulsions.

    Jews replace God’s objective standards of good and evil with their moving goalposts of subjectivity, the pillars of chesed and gevurah—”Is it good for the Jews?”

    Foolish and weak goyim who must also struggle with objective good and evil have welcomed Judaism’s subjectivity, a subjectivity that numbs consciences as goyim slide into satanic vice and talmudic depravity, leaving goyim easily manipulated for the purposes of the Synagogue of Satan. “Christian” Zionism anyone?

    Genesis 12:3 does not bless the Synagogue of Satan. According to Scripture, the land promises of the Abrahamic Covenant had already been fulfilled by the time of Joshua:

    “And the Lord God gave to Israel all the land that he had sworn to give to their fathers: and they possessed it and dwelt in it…. Not so much as one word, which he had promised to perform unto them, was made void, but all came to pass.” Josue 21:41-43

    “Thou, O Lord God, art he who chosest Abram, and broughtest him forth out of the fire of the Chaldeans, and gavest him the name of Abraham. And thou didst find his heart faithful before thee: and thou madest a covenant with him, to give him the land of the Chanaanite, of the Hethite, and of the Amorrhite, and of the Pherezite, and of the Jebusite, and of the Gergezite, to give it to his seed: and thou hast fulfilled thy words, because thou art just.” 2 Esdras [Nehemiah] 9:7-8

    According to Scripture, by the time of Jeremias the Israelites had already voided the Mosaic Covenant, so God would (1) make a New Covenant and (2) take the land away from the Israelites:

    Behold the days shall come, saith the Lord, and I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Juda: Not according to the covenant which I made with their fathers, in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt: the covenant which they made void, and I had dominion over them, saith the Lord. Jeremias 31:31-32

    When you shall have transgressed the covenant of the Lord your God, which he hath made with you, and shall have served strange gods, and adored them: then shall the indignation of the Lord rise up quickly and speedily against you, and you shall be taken away from this excellent land, which he hath delivered to you.

    Watch the video. Its very interesting and gives a very nuanced picture of what is going on.

    The Palestinians are extremely frank about their violent intentions to not just protest, but cut through the fence, kill Israelis, march on Jerusalem, and retake the land.

    The one incident where most Palestinians were killed began when Palestinians opened fire on Israeli soldiers. Hamas admits this, and amusingly spins this as non serious because “unfortunately” no Israeli soldiers were killed when fired upon.

    The girl who was killed repeatedly tried to cut through the fence with scissors, and even then may have been the victim of a ricocheting bullet or bad aim.

    Out of 52 dead, Hamas admitted 40 were Hamas members.

    The Israelis could easily machine gun or drone the whole area, but use snipers and monitoring technology, and put their soldiers in close proximity to harms way, in order to selectively target the violent only as much as feasible in a chaotic situation.

    It is interesting to hear the Palestinians frankly confess their desire to kill Israelis with their own hands, while the Israelis speak of trying hard to target only the violent, and express sympathy for the many protesters who they see as not necessarily violent, and for the Gazans in general.

    Don’t get me wrong – I fully understand the Palestinians, and like Ehud Barak, if I was a Palestinian I would probably take up armed struggle at the beginning of the struggle.

    But at this point its just bloodthirsty – Israel is here to stay, and their aims are insane (march on Jerusalem?).

    Maybe it’s because the US has been fighting Israel’s wars for 30 years, killing millions in the process and turning large parts of the ME into killing fields. All the while threatening to expand the conflict and maybe start WW III. So, there’s that.

    Or, could it be the holohoax, a grotesque and preposterous lie that has been used to drive a dagger into the heart of western culture and society. The Jews are out to destroy the west, and in many instances , for example with 3rd world immigration, they don’t bother to pretend otherwise. Maybe that’s the reason.

    We both know there are far worse situations for a person primarily concerned with morality to be concerned about, and we both know this particular conflict is especially morally gray and not at all suitable for classic white/black treatment.

    I think I understand the desire to “lash out” at Jews and Israel – but Israeli Jews are the only Jews who are not enemies of the West but wish the West well, and emotionally lashing out at Israel isn’t helping you get your own country back.

    What’s more, American Jews are increasingly becoming less enamored of Israel for the same reasons they are opposed to anti-immigration parties in Europe.

    So shouldn’t your focus be on American Jews and the issues that make you generally exploitable?

    Irving’s approach is to base his historical analyses on original source documents. In the book, Irving details Hitler’s and the Nazi’s struggle in their own words to seize control of the narratives about post-WWI Germany from the Jewish-controlled media. As in the United States today, something didn’t happen unless it was reported in the German MSM, with the Jews controlling the bylines and the narratives.

    Once the Nazis were elected to power (usually canvasing over 90% of the vote), one of the first restrictions on Jews in Germany was forbidding them from owning or publishing newspapers.

    However, in mainstream orthodox normative Judaism these days, these things do not have a prominent place. The extremist sects, however, emphasize them. And the secular Israelis, the majority of the country, completely reject them.

    I personally think all these disgusting passages should be expurgated from the Talmud. There are also positive teachings about gentiles – like that those who keep the 7 Noahide laws have a full share of heaven. It’s worth noting also its not a racial thing, as any gentile can convert.

    However, all groups should have some myth that elevates them above others for social unity – whites used to have that, and will again when they get better.

    The “separation of media and state” is what the First Amendment was intended to do. Unfortunately, the legalization of limited liability corporations and subsequent rise of joint stock corporations led to a concentration of power. Power always seeks to increase itself and throw off any restraints. Under the ruse of “individual rights,” this corporate power first convinced government not to regulate the entities government itself had created and should have had the inherent power to control, and because unregulated corporate power inevitably becomes monopoly power, we now see unelected monopoly power controlling in tandem both government and media.

    This inexorable process will not be stopped until people understand that only natural persons have the natural rights described by enlightenment philosophers. All grant of such rights to groups, whether they be ethnic, religious, tribal, stockholder collectives, or voting majorities, lead to tyranny. In particular, government has the responsibility to maintain control of and regulate artificial entities created by itself. That responsibility includes preventing the entity, its beneficiaries or controllers from exercising control over government itself, from externalizing its costs of operation, from preventing other individuals or entities from competing and from discriminatory treatment or favoritism toward others.

The sons of Noah are to be executed by decapitation for most crimes,[25] considered one of the lightest capital punishments,[26] by stoning if he has intercourse with a Jewish betrothed woman,[27] or by strangulation if the Jewish woman has completed the marriage ceremonies, but had not yet consummated the marriage.[27]

    Right, and Jews could be stoned to death for violating the Sabbath or disrespecting their father and mother. It’s not like the law was more severe towards gentiles – the opposite.

    The ancient bible code is extremely harsh by our standard, although somewhat mild by ancient standards.

    But that is why the Bible in its own was considered by Jews as completely inadequate as a guide if not supplemented by the oral tradition – it was far too severe for everyone, including Jews.

    There is the death penalty for trivial things, but the Talmud says a court that passed death sentence once in 70 years for any reason, even murder, was considered bloodthirsty.

    An increasing number of Israeli Arab Christians are volunteering in the IDF, in combat roles (which sees them raid Palestinian villages for terrorists ), and there are programs within the Christian community, supported by the Israeli government, to grow this number.

    Fascinatingly, there are an increasing number of Muslim Arab Israelis also volunteering in the IDF in combat roles, defending settlements in the West Bank, and raiding Palestinian villages in search of terrorists.

    However, the numbers are still small, but growing. There is an interesting documentary on Amazon about this.

    And of course, Druze and Bedouin have always served in the IDF in large numbers.

    I certainly don’t think all moral condemnation of Israel is fake – I think it’s perfectly reasonable for a left wing person to find Israeli behavior morally objectionable, for the same reason they dislike nationalists in Europe.

    However, many on unz pretend to be morally outraged at Israel in order to lash out at Jews – which, again, I think is perfectly understandable, but misguided.

    In addition, I don’t think purely moral considerations can reasonably claim Israel should be the primary focus of one’s moral concern, as it is for many leftists, because the world has far worse moral outrages.

    So focusing on Israel, even for a leftist, has to be seen as a species of white self hate – but not for that reason insincere.

    I also don’t think the world should “mind its own business” – we live in a global world, and no corner of it can be free of scrutiny. I am merely saying that for those motivated primarily by morality, Israel can only be a relatively trivial corner of the globe to focus on.

  121. Excuse the delay, it was not intentional

    “Watch the video. Its very interesting and gives a very nuanced picture of what is going on.”

    The Palestinians are extremely frank about their violent intentions to not just protest, but cut through the fence, kill Israelis, march on Jerusalem, and retake the land.”

    Unfortunately, the Israelis exceeded the boundaries when building their wall and as is usual engaged in provocative behavior by doing so.

    “The Israelis could easily machine gun or drone the whole area, but use snipers and monitoring technology, and put their soldiers in close proximity to harms way, in order to selectively target the violent only as much as feasible in a chaotic situation.”

    Well, given that the Israelis are known for bulldozing homes of civilians and other peculiar random acts of destruction against the Palestinian populations, I guess they could in fact add indiscriminate machine gunning. Though if memory serves, that’s been done. Your defense that it could be worse doesn’t really address the issue. Certainly one should be relieved that an officer did not choke them to death, but that doesn’t excuse the choke hold, false arrest and needless assault. I suspect that only thing preventing the machine gun scenario you so blithely introduce are the cameras. And as is the point throughout many of the comments and your own observations — the press response on the question is very astute and appears reasonable. And your point is the perfect example, well it could be worse. No doubt. That does not justify the action. I am curious about snipers who seem to hit unarmed children. I suspect there’s less sniping and more mere messaging.

    “It is interesting to hear the Palestinians frankly confess their desire to kill Israelis with their own hands, while the Israelis speak of trying hard to target only the violent, and express sympathy for the many protesters who they see as not necessarily violent, and for the Gazans in general.”

    If you take the time, to look around you’ll hear plenty of unseemly talk from Israelis on the same question. But as has been noted, those who express such sentiments were not interviewed, or the holders of the same, engaged in the “politically correct” manner. Hence the description of the sniper process about targeting, which if one takes the matter on the word — reveals some very unusual targets. Frankly, the process described is hard to fathom given the supposed immediacy o the presume threat.

    “Don’t get me wrong – I fully understand the Palestinians, and like Ehud Barak, if I was a Palestinian I would probably take up armed struggle at the beginning of the struggle.”

    Hmmmm . . . , no you don’t get the Palestinians. If you did you would get that those who express said comments and those ‘few’ who did respond with violence are responding to a history of violence dating back to 1948. A period in time in which the Israelis confiscated homes, property in what was a very deliberate violation of the process. it is a shameful period for the UN. I appreciate Mrs. Weirs documentary and am familiar with her reporting. But taking one day in Gaza is like taking one day in your life and understanding who you are and how you got there. The acts of terrorism committed by Israel was as horrendous as anything that has gone on regarding terror. Upon statehood, they engaged a war against Egypt — after promising that they would not engage in a policy of Zionism — well, we see what that looks like today, land confiscation, violations of international law, even betraying her biggest donor (an act that cost lives of US citizens and volumes of secrets).

    “But at this point its just bloodthirsty – Israel is here to stay, and their aims are insane (march on Jerusalem?).”

    So much for understanding the Palestinians. As someone who leans on the word of God, let me say, if in fact, god’s hand is in on 1948, I think so. However, no one and i mean no one is going to tell me that Jesus Christ of God the Father is sanctioning Israeli misbehavior, misdirection, theft, mayhem and violence or the breaking of International law. It was the international body of law that provided the nation state opportunity. And if that was God, Israel has abused the opportunity — and that she does so in God’s name is something I cannot endorse. God’s time, and God’s way was if such was the case one of order — Israel has been an actor of disorder in this regard. Muslims as administered by Turkey did not wipe out the Jewish population in the region and they certainly could have. The British admin of the region included, a process to provide a homeland for six different ethnicities. The jews upended and reasonable smooth transition by engaging in violence, including murder – hardly an orderly transition. This is not the OT testament times and the jews bypassed any rational for rationale of “God says so.”

    Yet, how much of Israel is adhering to God is another story. Let’s just say that even for the OT expectations of how the nation of Israel was to behave among her neighbors is yet to be realized even in the imagination. I would be careful about any claims to who is “blood thristy” if you don’t know the history and I don’t claim to, but your comments reflect a rather jaded one sidedness, in my view.

    “Anyways, the video is surprisingly nuanced and tragic and worthy watching.”

    What Mrs. Weir has done is to provide an introduction to the issue. She and the producers are not telling an indepth history. It’s a taste of the issues. I have no doubt that the Israelis are portrayed in as positive manner as possible. They have the upper hand in everyway, including a definitive influence in almost if not all media – many here would say a “stranglehold”. They would also state that the only response to a clear anti-Israeli campaign on all fronts in all quarters without reservation in nearly every way is required to correct the matter.

    I don’t agree. However, it’s clear that Israel is abusing US power without much of a return. Now, it may appear that I am one sided. No. I don’t think the Palestinians have a choice but to protest nonviolently: no rocks, no sling shots, no firearms, and definitely no rockets. Not because I don’t get it. But because I do. The propaganda campaign is all in favor of Israel. They hold the place of nearly all disenfranchised groups in which the dominant community holds all the cards. Everything they do that reflects a violent act feeds the contemporary and past “terrorism” label. That may be unfair, but that is the reality. And while they are gradually gaining some support. The violence response to the violence and oppression only works to undermine or stifle their case. The only violence they can engage is rhetorical.

    The Federal Reserve was created on December 23, 1913, when Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act into law.

    However it is rumored that Wilson had this to say about the act…

    [MORE]

    “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” (President Woodrow Wilson, a few years before his death in reference to the Federal Reserve act of 1913, which he signed into law. The American Mercury‎, p. 56. 1919.)

    I think someone started laying the groundwork for the federal reserve act and the fiat system we are plagued with in 1868 when they wrote the 14th amendment. The 13th amendment created a monopoly on slavery, but the 14th created the U.S. citizen, who is subject to the jurisdiction of the (foreign) federal corporation in D.C. More importantly, section 4 of the 14th amendment says..

    “The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. ”

    When the federal corporation went bankrupt in 1933, they confiscated the gold, and allowed the people the privilege to discharge their obligations in equity instead of paying their bills at law. This is also when they pledged all the peoples property and future wages as collateral for our glorious war debt. In 1942 they passed the victory tax act and in 1946 the National Office of Vital Statistics took over birth certificates nationally. The birth certificate is a title document the bankers use to keep track of their human resources.

    This is how they achieved their goal of turning a free people with lawful money (gold and silver) into slaves with a debt based currency.

    The cost of servicing the federal debt for the fiscal year 2018 was 523 billion dollars.

    The cost of servicing the federal debt for the fiscal year 2019 was 269 billion dollars at the end of March.

    In 1920 you could exchange a 1 ounce gold coin for a 20 dollar paper note at the bank tellers window. Under the Bretton Woods system foreigners could trade $35 in federal reserve notes for one ounce of gold. This lasted until Nixon closed the gold window. The Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985 changed the nominal value of the 1 ounce gold eagle to $50. Today a 1 ounce gold eagle costs a little more than $1300.

    12 U.S. Code § 411. Issuance to reserve banks; nature of obligation; redemption

    Federal reserve notes, to be issued at the discretion of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System for the purpose of making advances to Federal reserve banks through the Federal reserve agents as hereinafter set forth and for no other purpose, are authorized. The said notes shall be obligations of the United States and shall be receivable by all national and member banks and Federal reserve banks and for all taxes, customs, and other public dues. They shall be redeemed in lawful money on demand at the Treasury Department of the United States, in the city of Washington, District of Columbia, or at any Federal Reserve bank.

    But as we all know, it has been a really long time since the gangsters have operated in accordance with the law.

    Do you really feel deep fear walking through Jewish neighborhoods?

    Well, in the US, no. But in Israel, yes. After all, in Israel it’s a mitzvah to spit on Christians, and I might be mistaken for a Christian, see ‘Christians in Jerusalem want Jews to Stop Spitting on Them’, https://www.haaretz.com/1.4715226.

    We know from Yossi Gurwitz, linked earlier, that the Jews in the US are on their good behavior vis a vis the goyim. So street confrontations are not a problem here.

    Here, the fear is global. US attacks Iran, Iran attacks Israel, etc., etc., then Russia attacks someone and we’re all toast. Israel is a ticking time-bomb and it might take us all along with it.

    Art, you are a white American, correct?

    I do not understand why you are so passionate about a conflict that you are not involved in. Don’t you think your time would be better spent dealing with the very real problems in American society?

    This conflict has some weird symbolic value for you, and it isn’t healthy.

    You are quite simple minded. Obviously your only ‘passion’ is about your ‘whiteness” and immigration.
    Evidently you, like some others, are not capable of seeing the ‘big picture’ of the US-Israel-Palestine abomination.

    To make it simple for you…the Israel US scheme is the Flagship of US Corruption
    Corruption of our politicians, government agencies, our polices, our educational system, our media….and the latest Jewish Israel attack on our constitution regarding “free speech’ and right to boycott or any other means of protest according to our individual ideas of justice and human rights.

    No enemy has done as much damage to the principles of freedom…in every sense…as the Jewish Zionist Fifth Column in the US.

    This country doesnt need your kind…. You may be just stupid, you may be a Jew, or a troll…..whatever you are ……this country (and indeed the world doesnt need you.

    It is interesting to hear the Palestinians frankly confess their desire to kill Israelis with their own hands, while the Israelis speak of trying hard to target only the violent, and express sympathy for the many protesters who they see as not necessarily violent, and for the Gazans in general.

    The IDF goons were using bullets that caused the legs of the Palestinian youth to be amputated.

    Only a Jew could be proud of that, sighting their humanity. How sick. How diabolical.

    The Polish saying is true “the Jew cries as he slaps you!”

    Again – I repeat — the Palestinians are crazy and filled with rage because of their 70 year treatment by the Jews.

    Notice he said this:

    march on Jerusalem, and retake the land

    “retake” obviously implies it was once in their possession.
    I submit that most of the world would say, rightful possession.

    The truth cannot help but emerge, in the long run.
    Question is, will there be any Palestinian Arabs left alive by the time that happens?

    Years ago, the Israelis would say, (mendaciously) “The Arabs ran away.”
    Now, feeling stronger, they say, “We conquered the Arabs. They should just give up.”
    But, the Arabs have not given up, though it has been 70 years.
    What is it about “we will not surrender” that the Israelis do not understand?

    And finally, over 80% of casualties were shot in the leg.

    Palestinians are deliberately shot with explosive bullets that shatter their bones, leaving no alternative but amputation.

    Most amputees are shot with a single explosive bullet, including journalists Yaser Murtaja and Ahmad Abu Hussein who succumbed to their wounds after being shot in the abdomen.

    “All of their internal organs were totally destroyed, pulverized, said Gaza’s health ministry spokesman”.

    I have heard their policy is called “shoot to cripple.”
    Not to mention the fact they have a penchant for shooting paramedics and blowing holes in ambulances. This is not a new thing. I still vividly recall seeing pictures from decades ago of clearly marked Arab ambulances in Lebanon which were leaving the scene of battle (meaning, with casualties inside, headed to hospital) which had holes blown in their roofs by bombs or rockets fired by the “brave” Israeli Air Force. Must admit, that takes a lot of “guts.”

    And then of course there is the U.S.S. Liberty, where they machined-gunned the life rafts…

    I’ve seen your comments on this subject here, and while we may disagree on some key points, I appreciate your response to AaronB.

    AaronB begins by describing the documentary as “extremely pro-Israel,” thereafter stating it “gives a very nuanced picture of what’s going on” — an obvious contradiction. His primary engagement in this thread has been with posters who are evidently emotional. Perhaps he’ll find time for your well articulated response, but it doesn’t appear to interest him as much as shooting fish in a barrel.

    Yes, we are “unsafe” because of jews. Having come of age during the so-called “civil-rights” push of the 1960s, us aware whites had a saying: “Behind every negro, there is a jew”. It was no secret that just about every civil-rights worker was a New York-based leftist communist jew. They, along with the mainstream media of the day, singlehandedly had a hand in the destruction of once-great cities and the forced degradation of white society.
    Hell, they had to use federal troops against us whites to get us to “go along” with the destructive “civil-rights (for some)” program.
    We are living with the results to this day.

    Totally agree Cornea libel!
    For those who might wish to learn more, Alison Weir also wrote an excellent book: Against Our Better Judgement, a history of the machinations leading to the founding of Israeli state (and the origins of the Balfour declaration). Would it surprise anybody here to learn that it was Jews occupying high positions in the governments of Britain and the USA who used their power to serve their Tribe and not to work in the best interests of the nations of citizenship? Particularly disgusting to me was to read about the activities of Felix Frankfurter and Louis Brandeis, both of whom served on the US Supreme Court and therefore supposedly models of probity. (Brandeis: “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.” This, while he was working behind the scenes in a manner historian Bruce Allen Murphy calls “highly unethical”, page 9 of AOBJ.) Brandeis was born to non-observant Jewish parents, and so presumably himself non-observant. Regardless, his dominant loyalty was to the Tribe.
    Incidentally, here is a list of 89 Congressmen with dual US-Israeli citizenship: https://prepareforchange.net/2018/06/22/89-of-our-senators-and-congress-hold-dual-citizenship-citizenship-with-israel/
    To which are they loyal? Can a man have two mothers?

  148. “Sure, but who gave you whitey godless degenerates the right to implant that human pestilence on someone else’s land… ?!!

    Short answer:

    1. The UN 1948 mandate – despite its failings.

    2. Either now or in the future — God.

    Neither demands my carte blanche support for everything Israel does such that wrong is right.

    —————————————————————

    Long answer:

    I can certainly use more God in my life – no question.

    However, as to the re-establishment of Israel. It has been the desire among the British in particular who had jurisdiction of the region to assist in creating several states comprised of the roughly six ethnicities occupying Palestine. After WWII, the UN mandated what was intended to be a two state partition. The administration of which was largely in the hands of the British. That process was to be orderly and peaceful. History indicates the matter any bit orderly or peaceful. Israeli impatience fueled promises in scripture of the OT about a return helped fuel some very unfortunate choices and the entire affair went south.

    While I tend to take God at his word, there is plenty of room to challenge Israeli behavior and that challenge is easily supported by scripture. My support for Israel does not condone Israel’s recklessness, arrogance, manipulations or acts of unwarranted unjury, including treaty violations or acts of murder. Nor do I embrace any ideology that places my faith in an inferior or submission including Judaic belief.

    What Christ accomplished via his death and resurrection overhauls all that went before. And no christian who embraces Christ need condone the policies of secular political Israel or stand idly by as Israel engages in behavior that contradicts Christ or even the Apostles.

    Excuse my windy response.

    Someone please explain to me how “supporting Israel” benefits the American people politically.
    From where I sit (So. Calif.) it appears to me that any such support is an enormous political liability to the American people, with zero upside.
    If the Rev. Hagee and his followers wish to send money to the Jews in Israel for religious reasons. then I say let them do so. That is their privilege under our Constitution.
    However, it is also the privilege of the rest of us who do not share their religious beliefs to not be required to pay our tax dollars to support them, or their religious objectives.

    On a more practical note, it is my understanding that one of the goals of the so-called “Evangelicals” is to end the world as we know it, probably by precipitating a global thermonuclear war. Now, that may or may not be a danger to our “immortal souls,” if such exist, but it is certainly an imminent threat to out mortal existence.

    To the Rev. Hagee and his followers, “mortal existence” may be irrelevant ,or only incidental, but to those of us who live in a fact based reality, it may very well be all there is.

    Faith in a the supremacy of the supernatural predates any philosophy man has engaged and has persisted regardless of flood, famine and war. Anyone claiming its lost its mojo simply has no comprehension of man and his endowed belief in God.
