Israeli Settler Leader Defends Right to Displace Indigenous Using American Tax Dollars

Israeli Settlers: Patriots or Invaders?

Argentine Born Settler in Israel Leader Dani Dayan discusses whether Israeli Settlements are a Natural Extension of Israeli State or Obstacle to Peace

A UN report says Israeli settlements violate human rights and could be prosecuted as war crimes, but many Israeli settlers consider themselves patriots. So what hope is there for peace in the Middle East?

predatorIn a country where settlers are now one of the biggest and strongest political movements, Dani Dayan, a Netanyahu advisor and the outgoing chairman of the Yesha (Settlers) Council, says there is no two-state solution to the conflict and that he is happy with the status quo.

Dayan has been a major in the Israeli army, a successful IT entrepreneur, and a University lecturer. In 1999 he became an executive committee member of the Yesha Council, which represents the settler movement, and in 2007, its chairman until February 2013. He completely revitalised the movement until his resignation to campaign openly for Binyamin Netanyahu.

Mehdi Hasan goes head to head with Dayan at the Oxford Union, discussing whether Zionism is a colonialist project, whether the so-called apartheid roads are just an urban legend – and more importantly, what is the solution to this protracted conflict?

Dayan claims settlements are irreversible but preaches in favour of dismantling the wall. With a lively audience and robust debate from the expert panel, Head to Head is tackling the hard issues surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

karmi1Are the settlements a natural extension of the Israeli state or the single biggest obstacle to peace in the Middle East? Will the Palestinians ever be able to build an independent and viable state?

Joining the discussion above on  Al-Jazerra are: Dr Ghada Karmi, an academic and the author of The Palestinian Exodus (1999), In Search for Fatima (2002), and Married to Another Man: Israel’s Dilemma in Palestine (2007); Sam Westrop, a former director of the British Israel Coalition, and a fellow of the New York-based Gatestone Institute; and Hannah Weisfeld, the director of Yachad, a pro-peace, pro-Israel NGO based in London.

    Nor is it viewable here in Florida. The Zionazis can censor just about anything they want to, it appears. I hope I live to see the day when they are swinging from gallows by the hundreds of thousands. When the right people are able to show for certain that these vermin were behind the WTC attacks and many other false-flags, that will be when the SHTF for sure. God, I hate these arrogant bastards.

    “Israeli Settlements are a Natural Extension of Israeli State” for Snow White Eastern Khazar Talmudists?

      I saw the debate and the guy is a transplanted Ukrainian via Argentine, he and the hundreds of thousands like him are nothing more than common land thieves and in the US they used to shoot them like dogs… with all due respect to dogs. Al the settlers are but criminal trespassers and land thieves and without the protection of the Israeli army they will run away like cowards all the way to the Ukraine. Even the God they believe in is a land thief and a fraud. Of course you will never see such a show on an America Zi0onist run media… never… ever.

    As I see it, there is no moral equivalent to the American Indians and their problems in the U.S. and Israel and the Palestinians.

    The “jews” of course (at least a good portion) don’t see it that way. So power speaks, although most of their power is borrowed or better yet stolen from others. Because the U.S. did it, then it’s good for them.

    As cruel and ruthless as the settlers are, it will be good to see their Gen. Custer moment, and may it turn out the same way and soon.

      Absolutely right. The America’s were settled by the natural migration of people, no force could have stopped it once crossing the Atlantic became possible and practical. Israel has NO natural causes whatsoever, only political and religious causes.

      Geo-political decisions such as the Jews’ stealing Palestine after HST and the UN caved in to their demands, should never be based on the ancient scribblings of some old Jews who were probably stoned on the leaves of the acacia tree. It defies reason that the Jews are occupying Palestine due to the Jews’ own words in a dusty old book.

    “Israeli Settlers: Patriots or Invaders?” Invaders

    —-Israeli Settlers are the #1 terrorists in the world, that the corrupt so called “world leaders” purposely ignore.

    20th Century Zionist Ideology has NO legs in the 21st Century. It has no where to go in the connected world we are entering. Yeah, for now, funded by US Congress against the will of the ever growing diverse non-extremist American people, they can temporarily force themselves on the indigenous however, they have no end game cause, in the end, their psychotic extremism will be marginalized by the real reality that we’re all human beings; not just them. GAME OVER! It is just a matter of short time….they adjust and join the human race or they go bye bye as the last 20th century ideology to go extinct and replace by the new global reality!

      So do you really think they’ll say, “Yes, we’ll change, really, and we mean it.” and then they’ll change?

      I really believe that many of these people are beyond redemption and will never, ever, ever, change their supremacist, arrogant, blood thirsty, deceptive, treacherous ways. I can’t see that happening, there is such a huge difference, between most humans and them.

      And if you study history, it’s proven that there is NO real change, just a new angle, game, opportunity to take advantage, to seek control, power over others, exploitation, using whatever new means are available. So what do we do if this is true?

      Hang ’em, hang ’em high, as Clint Eastwood would say.

      I have heard a rumor that the Israeli Mossad has stashed nuclear devices in cities all over the United States, and are using them to threaten and control Congress. It seems this could be true if you consider the virtually 100% control they have over our country. Such a situation combined with their normal bribery, extortion, blackmail and threats could be the reason we are held hostage by the state of Israel. There can be no denying by anyone with a functioning brain that we are, indeed, the captive slaves of the Zionists, and the laughing stock of the world for being so. It is as though our politicians are all afraid to oppose the actions and behavior of these Jews because they are under death threats. And we are giving them the billions of our dollars to bribe those pols. God save America!

    These People are not the decedents of the biblical Judaic religion practicing peoples. even if they were it would not give them the right to move in on the Palestinians raping, stealing and killing. It works like this. If you break into my house and I blow you away, it is justifiable homicide. But if you break into my house and kill me its murder, because you broke into MY HOUSE. It is not justifiable to claim self defense when you are the criminal and original aggressor. There fore, if a Palestinian kills an Israeli, it is justifiable homicide, but if an Israeli kills a Palestinian it is murder. So no, an Israeli settler has no more right to be in the land of Palestine, pre 1947, at all.
