  • Doru

    Wonderful compilation , Kudos !

    Now , let’s all send a copy to our Presidents/Prime Ministers/Members of Congress-MPs , and ask them :
    ‘ As a country we can be judge by the friends and people we support . Do you support a rogue country with such a UN record ? If yes , you must explain since your support would make you and our Country an Accessory to Crime , a criminal offence under International and Local Law ‘ .

    Just do it ! Please .

    Thank you ,


    • Maurício Mmp

      Doru, good to see that from Canada. I lived there for some years and am pretty shocked with Harper´s unconditional support of Israel. The Crime Minister, as he is now being called, even refused to ask for a 2-state solution. I hope you all go to the streets and storm Ottawa with massive protests!!

    • Patrick Greene

      I was also ashamed to hear that our pitifully small 6 plane air force was sent to bomb the middle east under Steven Harper, and I find him guilty of war crimes.

    There is a huge gap between us (Jews) and our enemies ­not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience. They are our neighbors here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred meters away, there are people who do not belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to a different galaxy.” Israeli president Moshe Katsav. The Jerusalem Post, May 10, 2001

    “The Palestinians are like crocodiles, the more you give them meat, they want more”…. Ehud Barak, Prime Minister of Israel at the time – August 28, 2000. Reported in the Jerusalem Post August 30, 2000

    ” [The Palestinians are] beasts walking on two legs.” Menahim Begin, speech to the Knesset, quoted in Amnon Kapeliouk, “Begin and the Beasts”. New Statesman, 25 June 1982.

    “The Palestinians” would be crushed like grasshoppers … heads smashed against the boulders and walls.” ” Isreali Prime Minister (at the time) in a speech to Jewish settlers New York Times April 1, 1988

    “When we have settled the land, all the Arabs will be able to do about it will be to scurry around like drugged cockroaches in a bottle.” Raphael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defence Forces, New York Times, 14 April 1983.

    David Ben Gurion (the first Israeli Prime Minister): “If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti – Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?” Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), pp121.

    “We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves.” Chairman Heilbrun of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983.

    “Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.” – Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001, to Shimon Peres, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio. (Certainly the FBI’s cover-up of the Israeli spy ring/phone tap scandal suggests that Mr. Sharon may not have been joking.)

    ” … we should prepare to go over to the offensive with the aim of smashing Lebanon, Trans-jordan and Syria… The weak point in the Arab coalition is Lebanon [for] the Moslem regime is artificial and easy to undermine. A Christian state should be established… When we smash the [Arab] Legions strength and bomb Amman, we will eliminate Transjordan, too, and then Syria will fall. If Egypt still dares to fight on, we shall bomb Port Said, Alexandria, and Cairo.” ” David Ben-Gurion, May 1948, to the General Staff. From Ben-Gurion, A Biography, by Michael Ben-Zohar, Delacorte, New York 1978.

    “We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population.” Israel Koenig, “The Koenig Memorandum”

    Rabin’s description of the conquest of Lydda, after the completion of Plan Dalet. “We shall reduce the Arab population to a community of woodcutters and waiters” Uri Lubrani, PM Ben-Gurion’s special adviser on Arab Affairs, 1960. From “The Arabs in Israel” by Sabri Jiryas.

    “It is the duty of Israeli leaders to explain to public opinion, clearly and courageously, a certain number of facts that are forgotten with time. The first of these is that there is no Zionism, colonialization or Jewish State without the eviction of the Arabs and the expropriation of their lands.” Yoram Bar Porath, Yediot Aahronot, of 14 July 1972.

    “Spirit the penniless population across the frontier by denying it employment… Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discreetly and circumspectly.” Theodore Herzl, founder of the World Zionist Organization, speaking of the Arabs of Palestine,Complete Diaries, June 12, 1895 entry.

    “One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail.” — Rabbi Yaacov Perrin, Feb. 27, 1994 [Source: N.Y. Times, Feb. 28, 1994, p. 1]

    “We Jews, we are the destroyers and will remain the destroyers. Nothing you can do will meet our demands and needs. We will forever destroy because we want a world of our own.” (You Gentiles, by Jewish Author Maurice Samuels, p. 155).

    Now you tell me what Mel Gibson said that is anywhere near as morally offensive!

    I dare you!

    • Thought provoking compilation of quotes to say the least…

  • Jeremy R. Hammond , thank you for this comprehensive compilation of data that will be of great use to writers and activists concerned with the role and policies of Zionist Israel. Your work and contribution is deeply appreciated by many people. I have also added the article to my two blogs:

    • Thanks, Nasir.

      • Mara Cohen

        Oh Jeremy, misleading 3rd World Folks. Tsk, Tsk, Tsk. Just sad.

        • I would merely note how you failed to present any argument to support your “misleading” claim.

  • america has caused all of thisand she is failing so will israel who relies on the 5billion handout so it weapons can kill maim and destroy the palestinians.It will end sooner than we think.

  • Brilliant compilation Jeremy. Very handy while describing the Zionist entity’s rogue state of affairs…

  • michael

    For Mikhal, Are there any actual sources for these quotes, or just the made up ones that came up with, I mean seriously, if you even tried to use any of those sources in any respectable college class you would get an F.

    • MissCostello

      Of course there are historical sources for these quotes. Get off your ass and look. IF YOU DARE! I mean, seriously.

      • marisol

        And I should add the one from golda meier, she said “there is no such a thing as Palestinians”. Pathetic.

  • Thanks greatly, that was truly helpful info.

  • Yuval

    This list is the pure example of how biased the UN has been towards Israel.

    For some reasons you won’t see ANY UN resolution that condemn the exodus of around 1 Million Jews from Arab countries because the Arabs has massacred them there after the establishment of Israel.

    You won’t find there ANY condemnation regarding how Egypt violated human rights by poison-Gassed rebels in Yeman back in the 60’s.

    You won’t find there ANY condemnation regarding how Jordan has massacred THOUSANDS of “Palestinians” in the “Black September” of 1970. That’s probably because Jordan is allowed to defend itself from “Palestinian”‘s terrorism, and Israel doesn’t.

    You won’t find there ANY condemnation regarding how Syria has MURDERED 20,000 of their OWN citizens in El-Hama, 1982 in cold-blood, just because they opposed the dictatorship of Assad the father.

    You won’t find there ANY condemnation regarding the Iran-Iraq war, where both sides used chemical weapones against each other.

    You won’t find there ANY condemnation regarding how Arab countries are mis-treating their own citizens, how they massacre them like Lybia, Syria , Iran and so on, so forth do nowadays just like they did before.

    And why is that?

    Because the UN is nothing but a sad joke, rather say – a stage for Arab countries to show their hatred towards the state of Israel, that bravely pushed all their military attacks on it back

    • This list is just one insightful indication of what an outlaw regime Israel is.

    • Everett

      Have you considered the “possibility” that the UN may actually be right. Perhaps problem really is with Israel’s behaviour.

    • Trainman

      I don’t know any other member state of UN where a UN meditator has been assassinated, his murderers have been considered national heroes and the abettor elected for Prime Minister.

    • firestone

      LOL! Biased against Israel?
      Wikileaks: Ban-Ki Moon Worked with Israel to Undermine UN Report

    • Hamidah Fawad

      Really. And isn’t UN the reason Israel exists in the first place? Please decide whether UN is for or against Israel. You can’t keep using the UN card to suit your needs

    • Yuval: “For some reasons you won’t see ANY UN resolution that condemn the exodus of around 1 Million Jews from Arab countries because the Arabs has massacred them there after the establishment of Israel.”

      The Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel called for “in-gathering of the exiles” and Israel strongly encouraged Jews from the region to move to Israel, to replace the 750,000 Arabs who had been ethnically cleansed before and during the 1948-49 war. No-one knows how many of these came voluntarily in response to the Zionist call, and how many were expelled or fled from the Arab countries. Almost all of these decided to take Israeli citizenship, thereby ceasing to be refugees.

  • A F

    You’re right, Yuval – if you don’t look, you won’t find them.

    What you WILL find are several Security Council resolutions that condemn Muslim states for the same crimes that Israel is plainly guilty of, and some of those are Chapter 7 resolutions, authorizing the use of force.

    What you WON’T find in the annals is the litany of failed Security Council resolutions that rightly condemn Israel’s egregious human rights and IHL violations – all scuttled by use of or threat of US/UK veto.

    Alas, “bias”, it is true: the UN tends to be biased against countries with abominable human rights records. Jerks.

  • The u.n reports?????? The u.n. is a farce and should not even be here. The countries in the u.n have always been against the jewish people and always for the arab states. There are a lot of americans who have NO respect for the u.n and wish it would just move it’s headquarters and stay out of the u.s. So, I am one who believes that Israel should be able to protect itself AND have their small piece of land.
    Anyway, I think the u.n. is just a obsolete, biased group of “wanna bes'” that should MOVE. Leave the u.s. alone.

    • MissCostello

      If you say so. Clown.

    • Sumayya Betty Williamson

      Palestine was Illegally Given to the Zionist back in 1948,(more than likely was in a planning stage way before that) While Massacring thousands and chasing Palestinians from their homes…Now I ask you, WHAT RIGHT DID THEY HAVE TO STEAL ANOTHER GROUPS COUNTRY WHERE ALL 3 ABRAHAMIC FAITHS LIVE SIDE BY SIDE…

      • Palestine was not “given” to the Zionists. It was taken, as you otherwise rightly indicate (stolen, yes), through violence and the ethnic cleansing of 750,000 Palestinians.

        • EstebanCafe

          Hold sir. Did the not the world vote and give the partition of ’48 give this land to Israel ? Did not 5 Arab armies attack it the same day ? Did not Israel increase it’s borders by taking land from attacking enemies ? Did not Israel in a “land for peace” effort give Gaza to the Palestinians ?

          I’m curious why the Palestinians do not innovate (beyond exploding vests) and create businesses; why their children’s schooling is focused on revenge and hate and not on programming and entrepreneurial pursuits. What say ye ?

          • Did the not the world vote and in the partition of ’48 give this land to Israel ?

            No, the world did no such thing. Please see here:

            Did not 5 Arab armies attack it the same day ?

            By the time neighboring Arab states managed to muster a military response, 300,000 Arabs had already been ethnically cleansed by the Zionist forces in their offensive operations.

            Did not Israel increase it’s borders by taking land from attacking enemies over the next decades ?


            Israel started the 1967 war with a surprise attack on Egypt on the morning of June 5 that wiped out most of its air force while it was still on the ground.

            As noted in UN Security Council resolution 242 calling on Israel to withdraw from the territories it occupied during that war, the acquisition of territory by force is inadmissible under international law.

            Did not Israel, in a “land for peace” effort, give Gaza to the Palestinians ?


            Israel can’t have “given” Gaza to the Palestinians as Gaza was never Israel’s to give. See above.

            Moreever, the withdraw from Gaza was no “peace” effort. It provided the political cover necessary for an escalation of Israel’s illegal colonization of the West Bank, and Israel also implemented a blockade of Gaza, an illegal act of collective punishment under international law.

            I’m curious why the Palestinians do not innovate (beyond exploding vests) and create businesses…

            The question ignores the fact that the Palestinians have been living under a brutal and oppressive occupation regime. Particularly in Gaza, their very survival has depended a great deal on innovation and entrepreneurial pursuits, including the tunnel economy, where the free market has lived in the face of Israel’s illegal blockade.

          • EstebanCafe: No, Israel was not attacked by 5 Arab armies on May 15, 1948. Only Egyptian and Syrian forces entered territory within the borders declared by Israel on 14 May 1948 (i.e the area specified for the Jewish state in the UN partition plan). Jordanian and Iraqi forces entered only territory in Palestine, outside those borders, during the course of the war. Lebanese forces did not take part in the war. However, Zionist militias were already acting outside those borders well before the Mandate ended and Israel’s Declaration became effective. The Arab forces waited until the Mandate had ended. So Israel attacked Palestine first, and the action of the Arabs states was a response to that attack.

          • EstebanCafe

            “Only” Egyptian and Syrian forces entered “specified” Jewish state area on 14 May ? Nope. No war causation there.
            Sir, Israel was fighting for it’s life well before partition.

          • The Jewish community owned less than 7% of the land in Palestine on May 14, by which time a quarter of a million Arabs had been ethnically cleansed in order to establish the “Jewish state”.

          • No, the Mandate ended at midnight on May 14. Israel’s Declaration took effect 1 minute later, and Israel’s recognition by President Truman 10 minutes after that. Egyptian and Syrian forces entered Israel at daylight on the morning of 15 May.
            Contrast that with the behavior of the Zionists, who carried out a campaign of illegal immigration, arms smuggling and wholesale terrorism against the British authorities from the end of WWII. From the announcement of the UN partition plan they began to ethnically cleanse the area specified for the Jewish State in that plan, and then started to acquire territory outside the partition plan lines. As I emphasized, the Zionists attacked Palestine first, and the action of the Arab states on May 15 was a response to that attack. The 1948-49 war was an aggressive war of expansion by Israel. This is confirmed the fact that at the attempted peace conference in Lausanne at the end of the war, Israel refused point blank any withdrawal from the Armistice Lines, in spite of President Truman’s pleadings.

    • marisol

      You speak of utter ignorance and prejudice. You definitely do not know what a Treaty Body or Special Procedure is. There are independent commissions and rapporteurs who are impartial and report on various aspects of the israeli-palestine conflict. You should read and inform yourself before yelling to others, and the only thing we can see is that you are openly displaying your ignorance

    • GSUser

      Dude, I should piss on your grave.

  • Kishore Thampy

    The fact that you labored to compile this list of 79 odd resolutions is in itself commendable. We haave to assume you have been intellectually honest as most of us would not be able to expend the same effort in replicating this herculean effort.

    Decisions by the United Nations are considered part of international law. Security Council resolutions are binding. Israel itself was created by an act of the UN. Thus the Arabs cannot deny its legitimacy. Similarly Israel cannot deny the legitimacy of UNSC resolutions. And those Americans who spew hell fire and brimstone on the UN cannot have their cake and eat it. They have successfully used the UN to protect Israel from any international retribution. Equally, they have provided Israel the cover it needed to destroy the Palestinians as a nation.
    Without the UN there would be no Israel. Without the UN there would have been a Palestine state.

    • Just saying

      Israel exists because Israel is the Jewish land, not because the UNSC.

      • David Harmon

        Well apparently they think all lands are theirs, because they are everywhere except in their own country.

        • Mara Cohen

          Sad, but of course, Germans or British or French anywhere in the World is jolly. No matter whom they butchered to stay there. Got it. Thanks for the insight.

          • David Harmon

            Jews are Jews, and nothing else. You can’t claim to be a Jew and German. Surely you already knew that Mrs. Cohen. After all, you’re a Cohen.

          • Beatrix Rode

            Butchered stories made up by the Jews. The Talmud is a good example of that!! The Jews are the best storytellers in the world, the old testament is a great example of that! Numbers in Auschwitz changed from 4mil to 1.5 mil and the last number is still a blatant lie!!

        • Diana

          They don’t have a country. They are living a lie in Palestine.

        • Beatrix Rode

          Well said!

      • Israel is a “Jewish state” today because the Zionists ethnically cleansed Palestine of most of its Arab inhabitants.

        Not exactly something to be proud of.

        • Mara Cohen

          Jeremy, there are no “Palestinians” in Israel. There is no “Palestine. There are however, 1.5 million Israeli Arabs. I guess that would make the Israelis the most incompetent at “Ethnic Cleansing” in all History. Certainly don’t meet Arab Standards for Ethnic Cleansing, they cleaned out, butchered and expropriated nearly all the Ancient Jewish Communities of the MENA with their persecutions. Yemen is about the last… So Jeremy, before you put on your Jew Hate hat quite so snugly on the hat rack you call your head, you may wish to 1)Learn what Ethnic Cleansing” is, vs throwing out your libelous nonsense, and 2) Read the League of Nations Mandate to Great Britain, The San Remo Accords, and the Treaty of Sevres. Good luck with that! By the way, my Mizrahi Family were “Ethnically Cleansed” out of our homes in Hebron, by a gang of raping (my 11 year old Aunt Rachel) thieving, Arabs in 1929. And my Family was there when Omar and the Arabs invaded up from the Incense Road in 632 CE. We were there when the East Romans fought the Sassanids, the only time we were not in Hebron was while Hebron was ruled by the Crusaders. And we returned to both there and Jerusalem with the Kurds. Then in 1948 we lost our homes in east Jerusalem due to Jordanian Arab ethnic cleansing. And you really need to learn the definitions of the terms and concepts you throw around. Someone might note you haven’t a clue about what you are talking about.

          • The facts are as I stated them.

          • Mara Cohen

            LOL! You may wish to check the UN Charter. Creating a listing of Useless Nations Resolutions doesn’t automatically carry through into these resulting in Violations.
            The UN Charter makes it clear that the only binding resolutions are issued under Chapter VII, these all relate to keeping the peace and are extreme measure. The rest are advisory. There have been ZERO Chapter VII resolutions regarding Israel, so Israel has breached no UN resolutions, as ALL have been advisory (usually advising of a condemnation), and therefore there is no requirement to act. Here is a list of Chapter VII resolution, and the Wiki page that relates,

            The list of Chapter VII interventions includes:

            United Nations Security Council Resolution 82 (Korea)
            United Nations Security Council Resolution 1267 (Afghanistan)
            United Nations Transitional Administration in East Timor
            United Nations Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo
            International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda
            United Nations Mission in Sierra Leone
            United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda

            Sorry you’re such a Jew Hater, your choice, but your apparent hypocrisy in your articles implications really did need addressing. Good luck with your not the Journal for Foreign Policy. They actually attempt fact checking. And this is what happens when your prejudices overrun your journalistic ethics.

          • First, the argument that Security Council resolutions condemning Israel for violating international law are not legally binding is moot, since the international law Israel is being condemned for in the respective resolutions is binding on Israel.

            Second, Chapter VII deals with enforcement mechanisms. That resolutions not passed under Chapter VII are unenforceable does not render them “advisory”. They are legally binding as all members agree under Article 2 to act according to the principles of the UN Charter and Article 5 obligates members “to accept and carry out the decisions of the Security Council in accordance with the present Charter.”

            Funny that the farther of history Herodotus (500BC) never mentioned the Jews or Israel, only Palestine.

        • Mara Cohen

          LOL!!! Ethnic Cleansing normally involves the clearance of a resident population in the majority of it’s entirety. This is certaily not the circumstance with Israel, but is however the Lefty Parrot Litany. Tell me Jeremy? What will occur when any of your Readers actually go to Israel and see any of the 1.5 Million Arab Israelis who live there. You must consider the Israeli Jews either the most incompetent people in all history, or you have your facts in error. Sounds like you need a good course in statistics, as well as history.

          • Ethnic Cleansing normally involves the clearance of a resident population in the majority of it’s entirety.

            Well, then, by your own standard, Palestine was ethnically cleansed, since the 700,000 who fled or were forcibly expelled and never allowed to return to their homes constituted more than half of the Arab population.

    UN appears inept, when it does not enforce its own resolutions.

    • Contemplo

      Chapter 7 resolutions in the UNSC regard actions to enforce the UNSC resolutions, up to and including the use of force . Thus far, the USA has successfully shielded Israel from Ch. 7 resolutions.

  • UN Security Council resolutions needs to be presented in context – which is completely missing here. If you are wondering how many of these resolutions were vetoed then check out my blog post on US vetoes of anti-Israel security council resolutions.

    • None of the above resolutions were vetoed, if that’s what you mean. I don’t know what you mean by saying the context “is completely missing here”.

      • Unfortunately I’m too busy to analyze your list carefully (which is not to say I’m not interested). But there are only two resolutions from the last decade, and I don’t see how Israel violated them, it certainly isn’t in violation of them at present.
        In none of the reported cases do you give details of what the violation is. Violations can, of course, be a matter of debate.
        The other missing data is membership of the security council, who submitted the proposal and what the votes were.

        Nor do you give comparative data. Sudan or Somalia would seem to be
        worse cases from the last decade and both Lebanon and Syria have ongoing
        violations from the last decade, the first related to withdrawal of
        para-military forces from South of the Litani and the second to the use
        of chemical weapons.

        • This article is from 2010. I haven’t updated it. That said, to my knowledge, there aren’t any additional UNSC resolutions to add to the list. Why not? Well, the US has vetoed anything that came before the Council, or threatened to veto it so that it didn’t even go to a vote.

          The article doesn’t suggest that Israel is in violation of Resolution 1701 “at present”. As the opening paragraph tells you, it is among the resolutions “directly critical of Israel for violations of U.N. Security Council resolutions, the U.N. Charter, the Geneva Conventions, international terrorism, or other violations of international law.”

          As for Resolution 1860, which called for an end to Israel’s siege of Gaza, Israel does indeed remain in violation of it.

          If you want to find the voting records on each resolution, you can do so on the UN website. That is beyond the scope of this piece. Likewise beyond the scope of this piece is a comparison between Israel and other countries. You can do your own research and write your own article if these are things you’d like to explore.

          • Israel allows passage of goods to and from Gaza as required, though there are multiple restrictions, however it is not a total siege. In that sense it complies with the resolution, the resolution is a bit vague about how much freedom Israel must give. You can see examples of travel and trade in this article by BeTselem

          • It allows passage of goods “as required”? It is not a “total” siege? What meaningless statements. Israel remains in violation of Resolution 1860 and its ongoing blockade of both goods and people into and out of the Gaza Strip is a policy of collective punishment in violation of international law.

    Impressive list, is there also one available for the other side? Guess Hamas and the Arab neighbours of Israel don’t have clean hands either. In war there are always two sides to the story, its important to tell that as well.

  • No, there is not a list of UNSC resolutions against Palestine, as Palestine until 2012 was not recognized as a state and to this day is not a member of the UN.

    This topic and most of the comments made here could make me break out into hysterical laughter if it wasn’t such a deadly serious situation.You have nothing better to do with your time than to dig up stuff that is so biased and based on BS the UN Paper Tiger (Toilet Paper Tiger) puts out, just to justify their existence, that have to show they do SOMETHING? Here is a project for you: find how many palestinian mothers are training their children to strap on bombs to go and blow up other children. Or how about make a wonderful “compilation” of all the civilians that have been killed by these low-lives shooting rockets and missiles from schools, mosques and hospitals into Israeli neighborhoods killing mostly women and children? Then report how these incidents got handled by that precious UN and condemned, Seems most people commenting here are at best ill informed. Just try watching the news on other channels, the one you are watching now has an agenda, the consequences thereto would be to tragic to contemplate. Wake up and look on both sides of the fence for once!

    • I am an American. The US government does not support Palestinian crimes against Israelis. It does, however, support Israeli crimes against Palestinians, which occur on an incomparably greater scale. Perhaps you should take your own advice to “look on both sides of the fence”. It is a moral coward and a hypocrite who points only to the “other” side while excusing the actions of one’s own country.

          There you go again making a blanket statement and then asking for proof. Be specific. While not perfect the United Nations helps many people in world. And you often like to call people by vulgar names. Huh, there’s that pattern of you being childish again.

    PSYCHOPATH Israel and the diaspora must be dealt with.

  • “The tragedy of the people of Palestine is that their country was
    “given” by a foreign Power to another people for the creation of a new
    State. The result was that many hundreds of thousands of innocent people
    were made permanently homeless. With every new conflict their numbers
    have increased. How much longer is the world willing to endure this
    spectacle of wanton cruelty? It is abundantly clear that the refugees
    have every right to the homeland from which they were driven, and the
    denial of this right is at the heart of the continuing conflict. No
    people anywhere in the world would accept being expelled en masse from
    their own country; how can anyone require the people of Palestine to
    accept a punishment which nobody else would tolerate? A permanent just
    settlement of the refugees in their homelands is an essential ingredient
    of any just settlement in the Middle East.”

    ― Bertrand Russell 1970―

  • desertspeaks

    the article forgot to mention that Israel is a FAILED WELFARE STATE! Since it’s inception, there hasn’t been one single day that Israel hasn’t survived on WELFARE from various other foreign countries, who forcibly tax their own citizens to keep the FAILED WELFARE STATE OF ISRAEL FROM COLLAPSING!
    Were these states to withhold ISRAELS WELFARE, or IF Israel were to refuse their WELFARE.. Israel would become a defunct state within 30 days, perhaps longer with LYING ACCOUNTING but ultimately it would COLLAPSE!

  • Israel is a party to the UN Charter and is thus legally obligated to comply with Security Council resolutions. Israel also has an obligation not to violate customary international law, as well as the Geneva Conventions, to which it is also party.

    Your featured comment does nothing but demonstrate your lack of acumen in Military History.

    • I would merely note how you failed to present an argument to support your assertion. I take the fact that you didn’t support it as indicative of the fact that you can’t.

        Israel’s mistreatment of the Palestinian people may be finally open for discussion by the Labour movement in the UK. Thanks for compiling and publishing this evidence lead discourse which is helpful. That said, the bile that infects some correspondents is as enlightening as the facts themselves.
