„What actions, he asked. She said: ‚Did you go to fight in Syria? Did your friends…?‘ He said no. She asked again about Gaza: ‚Okay, you’re a smart guy w/ a Ph.D. What’s the solution for Gaza?’…When he fell silent, she asked: ‚When did you last throw a stone at an Israeli“…

;So you don’t give money to Gaza?; she asked; when he said he doesn’t, she told him that he was lying + she could see it in his body language.

‚Why are you nervous?‘ she asked. He replied, ‚B/c you’re applying pressure’…She said: “Maybe you’re nervous because you’re a criminal”

German man says was detained at border, questioned about ‘Palestinian blood’

“Don’t lie to us, because we already know everything anyway, and we can see when you lie too. We have a lot of video footage of you, we know where you went and what you did,” a second interrogator reportedly told him.

Common Enemy: Why Israel Is Embracing Fascism in Europe

(1.8.2018) Indeed, the ‘special relationship’ between Netanyahu and Orban is only the tip of the iceberg. For years, Netanyahu’s Israel has been ‘flirting’ with radical right movements in Europe.

The unmistakable Israeli strategy, of course, has its own logic. Israeli leaders feel that Europe’s move to the far-right is irrevocable and are keen to benefit from the anti-Muslim sentiment that accompanies this shift as much as possible.

Moreover, the EU’s resolve to label illegal settlement products and refusal to heed calls for moving their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is pushing Netanyahu to explore these new routes.

Did Winston Churchill Say ‘The Fascists of the Future Will Call Themselves Anti-Fascists?’

Similar quotes positing the idea that fascism would come to America disguised by a different name can be traced at least as far back as 1936 (although they weren’t attached to Churchill’s name until decades later). On 18 March 1936, for example, the Cincinnati Inquirer reported on words delivered by Norman Thomas, an American Presbyterian minister who was running for president as the Socialist Party of America’s candidate, at an informal luncheon: “Fascism is coming in the United States most probably, but it will not come under that name.”

How It’s ‚Absolutely‘ Possible For Steve Bannon To Be Pro-Israel And Anti-Semitic

(18.11.2016) But some Jewish thought leaders and rabbis aren’t as willing to accept the argument that being pro-Israel, or the commitment to protecting the state of Israel rigorously, automatically absolves someone from being anti-Semitic.

In fact, these leaders argue, it’s absolutely possible for people to support the state of Israel and the same time, to support networks that promote hatred towards American Jews.

There is now no denying the apartheid state that is Israel

I STILL recall when I first used the word “apartheid” to describe the State of Israel’s policies towards Palestinians. It was more than a decade ago now during a reporting stint in Jerusalem and after an Israeli colleague had told me of the Hebrew word, hafrada, which refers to the concept of separation.

Europe’s Most Extreme Nationalist Leader Visits the Jewish People’s Nation-state

Netanyahu also referred to the ideological tie linking the two governments: „Both of us understand that radical Islam presents a true threat“ to Europe, Israel and Arab countries.

„Iran is the greatest threat and we are the front-line protecting Europe as well,“ Netanyahu said.

President Reuven Rivlin, who represents the liberal part of the Israeli right wing and has publicly criticized parts of the nation-state law, also understands this link.

Head of Conservative Judaism Movement Compares Israel’s Religious Authorities to Iran and Saudi Arabia

„After my colleague in Haifa is pulled out of bed, arrested and summoned back for officiating at a non-Orthodox wedding and the passage of the nation-state law, I do not believe we can talk about a ‚gap‘ between Israel and the Diaspora,“ Wernick wrote in a letter to the Israeli government. „It is now a ‚canyon.'“

„These are the actions of Iran and Saudi Arabia,“ Wernick wrote, a rare choice of words for the leader of a movement which overall is considered very supportive of Israel.

Netanyahu’s Dark Deal With Europe’s Radical Right

(9.7.2018) He has some passionate fans there: A long list of anti-democratic movements and governments that consider Bibi’s Israel an optimal partner. The Israeli government has no problem with these entities, because they are essentially quite similar. The basis of the connection derives from overlapping interests and ideological closeness.
Immigration is a prominent example.

Corporate Media’s About-Face on Ukraine’s Neo-Nazis

(5.Juli) Last month a freelance journalist named Joshua Cohen published an article in The Washington Post about the Ukraine’s growing neo-Nazi threat. Despite a gratuitous swipe at Russia for allegedly exaggerating the problem (which it hasn’t), the piece was fairly accurate.

Under Cover of Iran, Netanyahu Just Took Three New Steps Toward Fascism

As the prime minister spoke, however, as a war-anxious nation and an attentive, approving White House hung on his every word, a little over 30 miles up the road, in Jerusalem, a mortal threat to Israel was being assembled under our very noses. In the Knesset, no less. A set of three time bombs, complex, deadly, radioactive.

Each of them a step toward annihilating Israel as we have come to know it. Each of them a step toward dictatorial rule, toward fascism. Each of them approved by – spurred by – Netanyahu himself.
