…from Press TV, Tehran 

[ Editor’s Note: There is no cloak and dagger stuff going on with the young Israeli men out hunting Palestinian victims in the streets, even dragging them out of their cars.

Once again we have PressTV remaining as the main coverage of young Zionist lynch mobs roaming Israel’s streets hunting innocent victims to beat the hell out of, their own version of America’s KKK.

To make the acts even worse, the few police on the streets make no effort to stop the mobs. There is no footage of authorities urging over their bull horns to go home and not expose themselves to rocket fire.

Is this Israeli state sponsored terrorism? If the Arabs were attacking settlers like this, would the police be doing nothing? What we have all been watching over the past week, once again, is Israeli apartheid in action.

Biden’s response has been tepid, the usual US response, so Tel Aviv has interpreted that to mean it has several weeks to cause as much destruction in Gaza to defend itself from the modern version of bottle rockets in terms of their comparative damage.

We have a compromised president who knows if he takes stronger action at this delicate time in his administration, Netanyahu will instruct his obedient Jewish Lobbies here to punish Biden by disrupting his legislative ambitions.

As Gordon does so love to say, “Welcome to how the world really works.” Sure we have Bernie Sanders sniping at our Israeli military aid. But if that were cut, Israel’s new Persian Gulf allies would replace the aid in a heart beat.

When is the last time we have seen a pro-Israel group hit with a ‘failure to register as a foreign agent’ investigation, in decades even? Are Americans second class citizens in their own country whenever Israel is involved? … Jim W. Dean ]

Israeli groups are planning further attacks on Palestinians residing in the occupied territories after settler mobs roamed the streets, looked for Arabs and viciously attacked them while Israeli police forces stood by and watched.

“Bring everything, knives, gasoline. Don’t be scared, we are the chosen ones,” one message seemingly on a Signal group chat named ‘The Underground Unit’ with several hundred members read, London-based online news outlet Middle East Eye reported.

“Good job at Bat Yam yesterday,” another message read, referring to a spate of violence in the Israeli city, where Israelis pulled a man they believed to be Palestinian from his car and violently beat him unconscious live on Israeli television on Wednesday night.

“Today we’ll go back to make some mess at 6 p.m. Let’s meet at the seafront,” the message continued.

In another message, which appeared to be posted on a WhatsApp group called Israel People Alive Haifa, a forwarded message gave the location of a Palestinian march in Tel Aviv.

“Any Arab you see – you stab. Please come equipped with flags, bats, knives, guns, brass knuckles, wooden boards, pepper spray, anything that would hurt them. We will restore the honor of the Jewish people,” it read.

Video footage posted on social media on Thursday evening appeared to confirm Israelis were marching in Tel Aviv areas mentioned in the group chat.

“We need Molotov cocktails. To the mosque. To make them shake. We’ll burn their houses, their cars, everything,” one user wrote in another WhatsApp group chat.

Someone in the group suggested meeting in Halisa district of the northern city of Haifa.

“Empty glass bottles, T-shirts, a few liters of gasoline,” one person wrote of the ingredients to make a Molotov cocktail.

On Thursday, Amnesty International called upon Israeli authorities to “take action against platforms that allow incitement to hate crimes, such as groups on social networks and messaging applications” after a host of screenshots of hate-mongering messages were shared online.

“The commission of violent and even deadly hate crimes justified seeing them as platforms of incitement to be monitored and closed,” Amnesty wrote in a letter, saying this could reduce the horrific lynchings.

“We turned to the police several times already on Tuesday, and we reported on the plentiful and concrete evidence of organization of retaliatory actions against Arabs,” the letter added.

In recent years, there has been a steep rise in crime and violence against Arab communities across the occupied territories.

Since the beginning of 2021, 22 Arabs have died in violent Israeli attacks. According to Israeli police, 113 murders took place in Arab communities in 2020, making it the deadliest year yet.

In 2019, at least 91 Palestinian citizens were killed as a result of violent Israeli crimes, accounting for 71% of the 125 homicide victims in the occupied territories, where the community makes up about 21% of the population.

  1. What took place at Auschwitz was unknown to the world until it was actually liberated by the Red Army. On the other hand, Israel is so cruel, bold and satanic, they commit this ongoing Holocaust right in front of everyone’s eyes and if you so much as wince, it’s solely because you, too, must be an “anti-semite.” Such is the wickedness and crookedness of that devil cult. They do this with weapons extorted from the taxpayers of the USA, dragging down every decent person to the depths of hell with them. No – ladies & gentlemen – that Israel breed is not “just like nazis.” They are considerably worse.

  2. The Demonic Zionist Zealots are enjoying, taking PRIDE in the, ‘Palestinian HOLOCAUST’, with their FUHRER in charge; “HEIL the Devil Incarnate BIBI!” Irony of life/history, repeats itself, only the participant, actors, perpetrators change! Samo-Semo! SAD but TRUE!

  3. No doubt ignorance is innocence, and innocence is bliss, but at a certain period of your existence when you do that you are an accomplice, you acquiescence responsible for the crime committed by others. And for that you will be held responsible in the Day of Judgment. You will have to face the music, not of Bob Dylan or Bruce, Jon Lennon etc.

  4. “Are Americans second class citizens in their own country whenever Israel is involved?”
    No.
    The vast majority are at most fifth or sixth class, and that’s being optimistic.
    When observing the social order of the pyramidal ruling hierarchy, the concentration and availability of power is non-existant to all but the few on the upper four or five levels, maybe?
    I’m just guessing.
    I know most of us are way down the ladder.

    • Yes, on a certain level, ignorance is surely blissful.
      Another way of looking at it is ignorance is innocence, and innocence is bliss.
      It is one of my sad failings to adhere to Christian teachings, to “mind not high things, but condescend to men of low degree.”
