The Middle East Monitor (MEMO) is an independent media research institution founded to foster a fair and accurate coverage of Middle Eastern issues and in particular the Palestine question in the Western Media.
I have to laugh at the duplicity at play here from Iran regards the suspension of official twitter accounts. Why? Because Iran officially bans social media accounts such as Twitter from the general populace. Couldn't make it up if you tried..
So Russia is a Zionist puppet ? and what else. Besides that I don't see Israel being involved i the internal Syrian war, but they have bombed Iranian - and Hizbollah Assets in Syria. Understandable, as both declare that they by unknown reason want to remove Israel from the surface of the earth. So whats your problem , Alin ?
When they [the UK] wrongly seized a tanker laden with Islamic Republic’s oil, we immediately confronted their illegal action in the Persian Gulf and this means that we have the resolve and power that are needed to respond to any threat,” Upon the request of Iran’s Ports and Maritime Organization, IRGC seized British-flagged Stena Impero on Friday in the Strait of Hormuz since the vessel had switched off its transponder and moving in the wrong direction, increasing the risk of collision with other ships.Iranian Armed Forces are capable of producing state-of-the-art radar systems and smart weapons,
Just about ever pertinent fact relating to the Mid East is disputed. That does not mean that the truth can't be extracted. Just about every map of the Mid East has different versions. That does not mean that the more accurate version is lost to history. The map of provincial "Palestine" came mainly in two versions and they were not so different. One had a small kingdom removed at the far eastern end, labeled in favor of the Hashimite dynasty. The other did not. Do you know of a third version? Because both these two support my position and the smaller version supports it better. The UK actually sought permission from the League of Nations to bifurcate Palestine to create Trans Jordan. WTF are you talking about?
Great. I am really enjoying this. Every time you reply, you dig a deeper hole.
I will deal with anti-Zionism against antisemitism first. If you criticise the Israeli government, that is fine. If you criticise Israel, that is NOT fine. That is antisemitism. It's like saying that because the Nazis murdered millions of people, I hate Germans. FYI, I have been to Germany many times and love the country. So, in a nutshell, you are an antisemitic.person.
Gideon Levy, Amira Hass, Norman Finklestein, Gideon Atzmon, Jeff Halper,.....and many more are just examples of anarchists. Every nation state has anarchists. Why you respect these people is beyond me. As we speak, a Palestinian resident of the West Bank is going to the Court of Human Rights to sue the PA for beating him up? Why? He did business with an Israeli. You are really enmeshed in a one-sided point of view.
The IHRA definition amendments are true and correct. You can criticise the Israeli government as much as you like, as we do here with our government, but it becomes racist as soon as you insert Zio-Nazis etc;
You don't have time to address the violence in the West Bank and Gaza? Boy, are you gutless. You are not a humanitarian are you. I am very concerned that both areas of Palestinian jurisdiction is a disgrace regarding human rights. Your 'raison-d'etre' is to slag-off Israel in the belief that this is all one-sided. GET REAL.
As for the list of 'massacres', this depends on whose version you read. War is war. Israel did not attack first in 1948, the Arabs did and lost. In 1947, the Arabs in Palestine could have had governance of 78% of the land, but this was not enough. The Arabs wanted a Jew free ME. So, they blew it. However, I will not mention the number of Jews who were sliced open by marauding Arabs. or the pregnant women that were targeted, or the number of snipers that 'popped off' Jews just walking down the road. Why, because it's not important to you.
