What do you call somebody who supports Israel?

Being racist normally invites strong disapproval, a ban, perhaps criminal prosecution. So why is supporting a racist regime like Israel not only tolerated but actively encouraged in the West's corridors of power and even rewarded with high office?

“If opposing Israel is anti-semitism then what do you call supporting a state that has been engaged in brutal ethnic cleansing for seven decades. What does that make you?” It’s a question posed by Miko Peled, an Israeli Jew and son of an Israeli general, former Israeli soldier and now a leading voice in the struggle for Palestinian freedom. You couldn’t find a more authentic insider.

What else has Peled been saying about Israel?

  • “The name of the game: erasing Palestine, getting rid of the people and de-Arabizing the country…”
  • As for talk about Israel giving up the West Bank for a Palestinian state: “If it wasn’t so sad it would be funny. It shows a complete misunderstanding of the objective of Zionism and the Zionist state…. By 1993 the Israelis had achieved their mission to make the conquest of the West Bank irreversible.”
  • Peled also describes the Israeli army, in which he served, as “one of the best trained and best equipped and best fed terrorist organisations in the world.”

So let’s repeat Peled’s question. What does supporting Israel make you when Israel has been busy ethnically cleansing the native Palestinians for seven decades? What should we call people who defend the indefensible?… who admire the despicable?… who applaud the expulsion at gunpoint of peaceable civilians and the confiscation of their homes and land?

Give them a name, one that will stick.

The claim by Conservative Friends of Israel that 80 percent of the party’s MPs and MEPs are members is alarming and reveals how lacking in integrity we are at the heart of government. It puts us almost on a par with US Congress which is almost totally controlled by the Israel lobby through AIPAC.

Being a Friend of Israel, of course, means embracing the whole rotten kit and caboodle, including the terror and racism on which the state of Israel was built. It means embracing the dispossession and oppression of innocent Palestinians. It means embracing the discriminatory laws against those who remain n their homeland. It means embracing the jackboot thuggery that abducts civilians — including children — and imprisons and tortures them without trial. It means embracing the theft and annexation of Palestinian land and water resources, the imposition of hundreds of military checkpoints, severe restrictions on the movement of people and goods, and maximum interference with Palestinian life at every level.

It means approving the bloodbaths inflicted by Israel on Gaza and feeling comfortable with blowing hundreds of children to smithereens, maiming thousands more, trashing vital infrastructure such as hospitals, schools, power plants and clean water supplies, and causing $6bn of devastation that will take 20 years to rebuild. And, by the way, where is the money coming from?

It means embracing the strangulation of the West Bank’s economy and the vicious ten-year blockade on Gaza. It means embracing the denial of Palestinians’ right to self-determination and return to their homes. It means embracing the religious war that humiliates Muslims and Christians and prevents them from visiting their holy places. It means endorsing a situation in which hard-pressed American and British taxpayers are having to subsidise Israel’s illegal occupation of the Holy Land.

And if, after all that, you are still Israel’s special friend, where is your self-respect?

It is ludicrous that a foreign military power which has no regard for international law and rejects weapons conventions and safeguards can exert such influence on foreign policy in the US and UK. Pandering to Israel has been immensely costly in blood and treasure and stupidly damaging to our reputation.

Everyone outside the Westminster/Washington bubble knows perfectly well that there can be no peace in the Holy Land without justice. In other words no peace until the occupation ends. Everyone knows that international law and countless UN resolutions still wait to be enforced. Everyone knows that Israel won’t comply unless sanctions are imposed. Everyone knows that the siege on Gaza won’t be lifted until warships are sent.

What’s more, everyone now knows that the US is not an honest broker, Israel wants to keep the pot boiling and justice won’t come from more sham ‘negotiations’. Nor will peace. Everyone knows who is the real cause of turmoil in the Middle East. And everyone knows that Her Majesty’s Government’s hand-wringing and empty words serve no purpose except to prolong the daily misery for Palestinians and buy time for Israel to complete its criminal scheme to make the occupation permanent.

Churchgoing British prime minister Theresa May praises Israel for being “a thriving democracy, a beacon of tolerance” when it is obviously neither. It’s an obnoxious ethnocracy. She says our two countries share “common values” when we obviously don’t — although her rotten party probably does.


Given the Israeli regime’s endless crimes against humanity and cruelty to the rightful inhabitants of the Holy Land her remarks are insulting to anyone who lives by Christian values. She even claims that Israel is a country where people of all religions “are free and equal in the eyes of the law” and “Israel guarantees the rights of people of all religions, races and sexualities, and it wants to enable everyone to flourish”. Her ignorance in these matters rivals Trump’s.

And May would do well to call off her efforts to ciminalise the successful BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) campaign. She warns that her government will “have no truck with those who subscribe to it”. But Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights bestows on everyone “the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers”. So she boobs even on that.

In an interview with Jonas Alexis, Miko Peled sounds upbeat about BDS. As long as Israel has a blank cheque from the US and the UK and is undefeatable militarily and diplomatically, BDS “is possibly the only positive change one can point to at this time.”

Many of us have urged beefing up BDS, extending its reach and orchestrating its efforts globally. There seems no other way to force the spineless international community to finally impose the sanctions they should have slapped on Israel decades ago.

It has got to the point where I wouldn’t mind seeing individuals among the political élites targeted by BDS if they deserve it. And many of them surely do.

  1. Jim, you posed an honest, and moral question which deserves thought and attention before answering. And yet you have to deal with the agenda driven trolls. It can’t be easy. I am against censorship but I would delete their accounts. This is literally war. You work daily to put your views out for consideration. Something to balance against the FOXs and CNNs. Do you really have to put up with paid trolls? VT is your work place, and as such you have the same rights as an employor. Would a factory owner allow someone to walk floor every day and tell lies? I don’t think so. Get them out of here. Please.

  2. “So why is supporting a racist regime like Israel not only tolerated … .”
    Two reason, or excuses come to mind. The first is what Mayor Rothschild said 270 years ago. “I care not who makes the laws, as long as I print the money”. Not verbatim but close. This covers for those without conscience, and the brainwashed.
    The second answer I have is more complicated. Our tolerance may stem from inherited guilt. Anyone living in this country has thought about how it was formed. What we did to the American Indian is exactly what Jews are doing to Palestine. Land theft and genocide of the native population. So how do we protest Israel without being hypocrites? If we raise our voice will there be consequences? Will we have to give back land? Will we have to apy enormous restitution for the historical crimes? Crimes which we would duplicate today if given the opportunity. This is a problem. It’s the same reason the Zionists keep the “gas” chambers alive, and bash everyone else with the anti-Semite hammer. If they don’t they will have to return enormous amounts of money, the unprinted kind. They have to admit to lies, and murder. It’s the same with us. We are cowards and unable to apologize. So we remain silent. It’s a perpetual thing.

  3. Having a natural antipathy for hyperbole, I will state categorically: Israel is a criminal enterprise through and through. What does this provable fact make of its supporters?

    Liar, cheater, bully, con artist, hypocrite Trump talks out of both sides of his big mouth, claiming to support outside agitators in Iran against its legitimate government while ignoring the gross inhuman treatment of Palestinians by the unindicted war criminal Israel who is also a land thief and did 9/11/01 to the U.S.:https://wikispooks.com/wiki/9-11/Israel_did_it

    • “Larry Silverstein – is a Jewish American businessman from New York. Silverstein obtained a 99 year lease on the entire world trade center complex on 24 July, 2001. [3] The towers were in fact close to worthless, being filled with asbestos, [4] yet Silverstein “felt a compelling urge to own them”. Silverstein had breakfast in “Windows on the World” restaurant (located in North Tower 107th Floor) every morning. [5] but broke this routine on the morning of 11 September 2001. Silverstein’s two children, who also worked in the WTC, were also absent from work that day. Larry Silverstein was paid a little over $4.5 Billion in insurance money as a result of the destruction of the WTC complex. [6] Silverstein was on personal friendship terms with Zionist media-magnate Rupert Murdoch, former Israeli president Ariel Sharon, as well as Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Silverstein was such good friends with Netanyahu that, according to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz he would speak with him on the phone every sunday.

  5. Regardless of anyone’s Christian or Biblical beliefs, the Bible is the Word of God. Here is what the Word of God sates – the nation of Israel is not Israel. The real Israel consists of the ten northern tribes; conquered and deported by Assyria in the 600’s BC and resettled between the Caspian and Black Seas. From there they migrated into Western and Northern Europe and identified as Caucasians.

    The inhabitants of the current nation of Israel may have a few Judeans within the ranks but the majority are Edomite halfbreeds as was Herod and a vast number of Khazarians who are descendants of Japheth and not Shem.

    According to Jeremiah 18 and Isaiah 29 Jerusalem (and most of Israel) will be destroyed in the near future. Chritsian Zionists (the majority of evangelicals) do not understand, or refuse to understand, the prophecies of Jeremiah, Isaiah, and others. The so-called Jews are not the chosen i.e. the apple of God’s eye. They have done an incredible joy of covering their tracks, however they are destined for destruction.

  6. FIND A PAL …

    The phrase: “Evil Is Real” begs the question: “How Real Is Israel?” Answer: “Real, Real, Gone”

    “Some people say
    You can make it on your own
    Oh you can make it if you try
    I know better now
    You can’t stand up alone
    Oh baby that is why
    I’m real, real gone”

  7. Nothing – not even names or words will stick on slime. The “free loader society” throughout humanity being bribed, corrupted and killed if necessary does not need a name change. They need to be corrected but not through words as words have become more then meaningless. A discussion of problems that will be fruitless as the last 2000 years have proven. If a small treacherous community runs the world of greed which has infected ALL the population and Governments of this planet even though many will say “that is not me or us”. Money rules and most western Governments are the cause of all evil as taxes are the hidden bloodlines that suck their citizens dry while feeding slimy Oligarchs off shore accounts. To be honest has become an attitude of stupidity which is punished instantly. I COME FIRST is not the evil that rules the Zionist Kingdom it is also being adapted in the lowest circles of mankind and all others tribes above them.
    The biggest supporter of Zionism are Governments worldwide. Why finding a NEW NAME if they are the evil that supports freeloading and dwell in it with their pockets filled. The world of humanity is in decay. And “I come first” is far to superior to get involved in repairs after all I am the King/Queen and are far above this sh!t.

  8. I’d call a “supporter” of Israhell a Mizpah 44 –מצפה 44 — or a Kosher Jockstrap. Either one works.
    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/55/Mizpah_1922_Jockstrap_Advertisement.gif
    Silk screen “I support Israel” on the front . . . and there you go . . . nads! True supporters of Israel!
    “Gives you a feeling of real comfort . . . and the feeling of perfect protection . . . while playing games of any kind.”

    And boy howdy, do they play games in Israhell. The “shell” game combined with their think . . . tanks.

    Since the current manifestations/infestation of what is now Israhell has a history stemming back centuries in the pubic cross-hairs of time to the Khazars, the Mizpah No. 44 is a MUST HAVE in supporting Israel.
    Somebody that supports Israel: Mizpah 44.
    And for her? Mizpah 44, Eau du Toilette Directions for use: Spray on the area 45 likes to grab.

    Them boyz sure have some big matzo balls . . . and they SHOULD BE supported! OMIGOSH, how can anyone not want to wear their Mizpah No. 44 Jockstrap with pride “I support Israel” emblazoned on the front. True supporters of Israel!

    I’d send one to Bibi,Inc. in a heartbeat and for Bumstein’s Blondie wife, Eau du Toilette Mizpah No. 44. Dude has the biggest ball sacks this side of the Dead Sea. And the irony . . . they seem to be proud of it. Pity. Proverbs 16:18

  9. I call them Catholics. And for solid reason. The doctrine of Discovery and the Papal bulls paved the way for this type of nation building. They are the pioneers of religious occupation in the modern age. They incorporated the text and sold it as Hebrew history. They simultaneously teach suffering and forgiveness as the road to ‘heaven’. Without this doctrine and established process or precedent, the move by Britain would not have been possible. The architects pretend to not be responsible for how the building looks after it looks bad. The Vatican is the parent, architect and enabler supreme in all of this. And what sends it over the edge, is that they know the book is not theirs, and they practice all the things they tell their followers not to. Our constitution still relies on the doctrine of discovery in the USSC. If the US goes against it, then they invalidate their own claims.

    • The protestants don’t like to be called Catholic, but they have no other book. The buck stops at the book. If we subtract that one book from our set of data, is Israel our friend ? It is the original con, and the most difficult because it is subtle hypnotic by design. Not intentionally, but because the structure of it was designed from naturally existing patterns, and converted to written form. It is the responsible thing to do to make sure that fraud is not perpetrated upon the townsfolk. Any decent sheriff would agree. Historical correction is not revision. It is responsible.

    • Join the Oscar Romero Society with Lawyer Daniel Sheehan. He campaigns for Native American Rights and REpreal of The Doctrine of Discovery. Well respected lawyer in Penatagon Papers, Iran/Contra etc and of course Romero was shot saying Mass by The School of Americas Alumni.

    • David Odell

      You speak of the Bible , the much acclaimed the Christain Book , BUT WHAT is Bible in relation to Holy Jesus ?

      Jesus Obviously DIDN’T Author the Bible.
      The Bible is Jewish Concocted Sh1t to Explain Why the Jews Killed Christ the Obvious Miracle doing Prophet.

      the Jews Killed Christ because he was Challenging the Jewish Money Changers AND When the People asked the Jews as to WHY they Killed such a Good Man they came up with a Compilation of Ancient Books and Jews said that THIS is WHAT HE Said . Bullsh1t Obviously to save Jew Asses from Accountability .

    • Chris Paul, I trust Sheehan about as far as I could throw him, and the tribes feel the same way. See, it is important to remember that controlled opposition can take a case to SC and lose, thus setting precedent in their own favor. The guys who like him are optimists being overly hopeful of christian hospitality.
      Check Sheehan’s record. and his affiliations, it is not with tribal leadership

    • Jim Dean the Master Editor ,

      THANK YOU especially for Answering that Hoffman Israeli troll , I don’t facebook or Twitter OR I’d tell HIM the SAME Myself .

  10. We live in an insane world today where up is down, down is up, right is wrong and wrong is right, good is bad and bad is good, …and Israel is above all other countries on the planet and is to be worshiped. The two world liars and psychopaths are Donald J. Trump and his counterpart in England named May a female liar and psychopath like Trump. All this proves the dictum that the longer one tolerates a bully like Israel the worse it gets. The basic problem is Israel has so much money to buy votes and friendship, and failing that, move on to plan B to get their selfish evil selfish goals served. Observe the deafening silence of those in our military from the cowardly four star generals on down. These crooks talk about not carrying out illegal orders but how about all the illegal orders they comply with every day at the bidding of unindicted war criminal Israel? These jerks are nothing but gutless cowards aiding and abetting all the crimes Stuart has so eloquently described above and elsewhere. Only military armed force by all nations against thugs Israel and the U.S. can end this world insanity. The longer one waits the worse it will be to stop, but stop it must. End it must and end it will one way or another and it won’t be pretty to teach lying bullies and thugs a lesson in manners not to steal thy neighbor’s lands. The inmates have clearly taken over the asylum in the world today. Golden Rule:
    “Do Unto Others as You Would Have them Do Unto You”

  11. I hate to be Uncensored Blunt But Any Supporter of the EVILS of Israel is just nothing but an Immoral Asshole ……………… here the Word Assh0le is Needed so please don’t Censor it here

    • Israel is A Nation of Liar Psychopaths , they’re ALL EVIL .

      I mean supposing You Didn’t Own A House but then Evil Jews Walk into Palestinian Homes and Declare it as Their Long Lost , I mean Who Forgets his Own House AND the Ones that Declare Palestinian Homes as THEIRS are Simply Lying Piece of SH1T Jewish Psychopaths . i say NUKE ISRAEL INTO EXTINCTION , THIS Family of Criminals must NOT Survive the Day because today its Palestin , USA , Australia , the UK etc …… IF THIS EVIL is Allowed to Survive Today then Tomorrow it will Victimise Someone ELSE ………….. So at the First Chance The HUMANS Should Obliterate this EVIL KHAZAR TRIBE .

    • Do some research on the Col Nidre ijcantation of the Yom Kippur New year. ” All vows,obligations,oaths and anathemas (curses) which we may, vow or swear, or pledge, or whereby we may be bound, from this Day of Atonement until the next we do repent. May they be deemed absolved, forgiven, annuled, and void, and made of no affecrt: they shall not bind us nor have any power over us. The vows shall not be reckoned vows; the obligations shall not be obligations; nor shall the oaths be oaths”.

      Some call this the Locence To Lie. How can a Court of Law or the Whole Political System function like this. If 80% of Conservatives in the UKL and nearly 100% of the House of Representatives and Congress in the USA are beholden to these people, where is the Democracy preached all over the World by the USA. “The Truth shall set you free”, “shout it from the roof tops”.

    • Chris, truth has become like swearing and you swore muchly in the comment above. All Governments have become allergic to truth. Though USA is the champion show pony in allergies of truth.

    • Indeed. And the millions of xtian zionists are as you described.
      Others; Ben Shapiro
      Howard Stern
      Every member of congress
      Michael Shrimpton
      Theresa May
      Borzo Johnson
      Donald trump and his entire administration
      The phony xtians who revel in the existence of that nasty little hell hole of criminality should be ashamed of themselves but unfortunately they have no shame, only xtian hubris along with massive ignorance and stupidity. Most of them are rednecks and hill billys, barely literate, if they can read at all but a great many are also stupid liberals, brainwashed by zionist lies. Conservatives are not by any means left out. They for some reason have been taken in, probably from bribes and blackmail.
