Antisemites use the language of anti-Zionism. The two are distinct | Kenan Malik | Opinion | The Guardian
Israel itself combines aspects of civic and ethnic nationalism. As the late historian Tony Judt put it in an essay for the New York Review of Books, Israel is both a democracy in which non-Jews can be citizens and “a state in which Jews and the Jewish religion have exclusive privileges from which non-Jewish citizens are forever excluded” and from which Palestinians grievously suffer. Judt faced great opprobrium for that essay, with many reviling him as “antisemitic” or a “self-hating Jew”. To oppose Zionism but not other forms of ethnic nationalism would indeed be antisemitic. But to oppose Zionism because one opposes ethnic nationalism is a legitimate view.
Judt, who in early life was a Zionist, came eventually to accept that the only lasting solution would be a single, secular state in which both Jews and Palestinians were treated equally. For anti-Zionists like Judt, “self-determination” in that piece of contested land that is Israel/Palestine should adhere to principles of civic, not ethnic, nationalism; that is, be the self-determination of the people, and only the people, who live there, whether Jews or Palestinians.

Ilhan Omar is right about the influence of the Israel lobby | Alex Kotch | Opinion | The Guardian
Following the Ilhan Omar controversy, it’s incredibly important to be able to decipher between real antisemitism and basic political facts [...] Omar’s controversial tweets noted two important realities. First, money is a huge problem, and motivator, in Washington. Second, Aipac is a powerful group that uses its money to influence the policy decisions of members of Congress. As both Mehdi Hasan and Ryan Grim detail in the Intercept, Aipac officials have bragged about their power over Washington lawmakers.

Chris Hedges - Our Only Hope Will Come Through Rebellion - 29th March 2014 - YouTube
military industrial complex does what it wants and asks and gets what it wants. // Truth is hidden. Decent is criminalised. // things are only to get worse. // protect corporate state and spy on other corporate states and corporate entities. // for-profit military industrial complex // 9/11 opportunist, false flag, to profit from program X to protect our nation // no warrent needed - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warrant_(law) // the corporate state has no incentive to give up Stasi 2.0 // >> = Totalitarian state // we have totalitarian structures! period. // reform can not come from those who are in the center of power and a implicit of the status quo ... meaning only a revolution through rebellion is the option. defying the law and opting for civil disobedience. moral and physical courage needed.

Auschwitz: Night Will Fall von Hitchcock über Holocaust und KZ - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Schreckliches Superlativ "German Concentration Camp Factual Survey", das war der nüchterne Titel des britischen Projektes, Alfred Hitchcock war als "beratender Regisseur" vorgesehen, der aus den Schreckensbildern einen Film formen sollte. Doch der Starregisseur war in Hollywood und kam erst Ende Juni 1945 in England an, knapp zwei Monate nach Kriegsende. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt waren zwei Dinge passiert: Es war klar, dass die Deutschen nicht gedemütigt werden sollten, sondern gebraucht wurden, als Bollwerk gegen die Sowjets - sie sollten nicht als die Monster gezeigt werden, die sie waren. Und, auch das macht der Film deutlich: Die Juden sollten nicht als die Opfer gezeigt werden, die sie waren, weil die Situation in Palästina für die Briten immer problematischer wurde, je mehr Juden in das Land drängten. Der Film, der zu grausam war für diese Welt, wurde nie gezeigt. Realpolitik hatte den surrealen Horror ersetzt.

+ http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-28632287 An attack that killed 10 people at a UN-run Gaza school was a "moral outrage and a criminal act", UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has said. It constituted a "gross violation of international law", Mr Ban said. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the US was appalled by the "disgraceful" shelling.
