Emily Henochowicz, U.S. Art Student, Shot in the Face With a Tear-Gas Gun by IDF Soldier at Protest

by Scott Creighton

One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes.” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

This is a picture of a U.S. citizen being carried to a hospital by a Palestinian and being cared for by another Palestinian after being shot in the face with a tear-gas canister by an IDF soldier. IDF soldiers have often shot demonstrators directly with the tear-gas canisters in the past.

“21-year old Emily Henochowicz was hit in the face with a tear gas projectile fired directly at her by an Israeli soldier during the demonstration at Qalandiya checkpoint today. Israeli occupation forces fired volleys of tear gas at unarmed Palestinian and international protesters, causing mass panic amongst the demonstrators and those queuing at the largest checkpoint separating the West Bank and Israel.

“They clearly saw us,” said Sören Johanssen, a Swedish ISM volunteer standing with Henochowicz. “They clearly saw that we were internationals and it really looked as though they were trying to hit us. They fired many canisters at us in rapid succession. One landed on either side of Emily, then the third one hit her in the face.”  ISM

This is Emily in the hospital. She lost her eye.

What kind of individual shoots a 21 year-old girl in the face with a tear-gas gun? What kind of soldier shoots a 21-year-old girl in the face for simply protesting?  Is that the definition of a post-9/11 soldier?  Or is that the definition of a terrorist?

The irony here is that Emily Henochowicz is an art student in New York at Cooper Union, very good school in Manhattan. Her career will never be the same because of one cowardly IDF soldier who thought it would be funny to shoot a protester in the face with a tear-gas canister.

One more bit of irony… go here to view Emily’s website. It’s full of her art and musings. The art of a gifted and politically awake 21-year-old with her whole life ahead of her.

This is an example of her art…

and ironically this was her avatar…..

  1. The Israelis are filth from the sewer. Let’s hope their disgusting rathole of a country is incinerated.

  2. She also does a very graphic image of Obama.
    Hope she gets well and continues her career.

    The man who damaged her eye should have to lose one of his. In a painful scary way.

  3. no one here hope Israel is “incinerated”. But I would like to see them held to the same standards of behavior the rest of the world is held to.

    Bibi needs to be removed from office.

    Israel has an out-of-control government and they are perpetrating serious crimes against humanity on a daily basis now.

    There are series problems with Israel now and we all know they are a nuclear power. If we do not hold them accountable now, there is no telling where this will all end.

    the international community is clear on the matter, the overwhelming global consensus is in; Israel needs to be held accountable to the rest of the civilized world for these actions and their actions against the people of Palestine.

    That said, no one needs to “incinerate” the vast majority of innocent people in Israel who actually do not support many of these criminal actions taken by the state.

    • sorry willyloman, i’m afraid IF the world DOES NOT INCINERATE Israel, THEY will INCINERATE the world some day…they can only be trusted to do the worst possible thing, eventually…have to face that fact…or else…………………………………………………..

      • I agree fully. One day the world is not going to put up with Israel anymore, and it will end very badly for the whole country.

  4. I hate to say it, but sometimes I think Hitler didn’t take things far enough. No doubt this will cut me some flak. What the Israelis are doing today shadows the worst that the nazis ever did. We should at least boycott all Israeli goods. Anything with the serial number 729 (first three numbers on the left of a bar code) comes from Israel. Turkey has already announced the next aid flotilla will be accompanied by Turkish warships. Right now it’s the entire world against Israel, the US, and Britain. WWIII is right around the corner unless something is done asap. The time for half measures is over. All the fools looking to Obama for “leadership” are just that… fools. The peace movement is all but dead in Israel, because after their last peaceful demonstration the IDF shot at them too. And all their aggression is based on biblical hyperbole, aka bullshit.

  5. No we certainly don’t want to see Israel incinerated. You see, Like willy says, what we need is to see israel face the civilized world, from inside a court room. There is where lasting vindication lies.

    We should actually be gratefull for Israels lattest conducts. They just made our job easier. Piracy on the high seas will be a hard one for israel to evade. Piracy that includes murdering innocents only aggrvates their legal deliema. How they gonna weasel out this time.? Now they pissed too many countries off. The next groups of ships will be escorted by turkish combat vessels. That should be interresting. If Israel destroys these two war ships, that will only get Israel in deeper. You give a fool enough rope, an they’ll hang themselves.

    So sit back now boys and girls and watch the fun. It’s going to get interresting watching Israel try to weasel out of this mess.

    What was that little thing Princesses Leah said to Darth Vader? “the tighter you squeeze your grip, the more planets will slip through your fingers”.

  6. Israel only upped the ante for war, not litigation. Revolution begins at the barrel of a gun. Not in courts. That comes afterwards. That’s history. I used to be sympathetic to the Israeli cause, but now my feeling is much like the dinner jacket of Iran – another trumped up enemy. Int’l court is only supported by the winners, not the losers. Look at all the japanese officers we murdered after WWII for committing the same crimes our govt does daily – like waterboarding.

  7. I wonder if someone would write here: “The Arabs are filth from the sewer. Let’s hope their disgusting rathole of a future country is incinerated.” Would it be censored?

  8. No Yisrael Medad, I don’t think Willy would delete a fool’s comment……
    and if you are blasting the Arabs for wars (that Israel started) around the 1300 BC years, then remember that your tribe murdered all inhabitants of the so called promise land when Israel first stole that land.
    I don’t think God meant to take a land by ‘murdering’….
    maybe he meant by co-existing with others.

  9. No, I was just testing the limits of civil liberties, that’s all.

    As for hate and stupidity, I yield to you guys.

  10. Emily’s loss of an eye is a tragedy. However, it well known that the ISM is a Palestinian run organization that delights in placing internationals in harms way in confrontations with Israeli soldiers. They have admitted this in the past. Young people who place themselves in danger to support the ISM should be aware that almost every ‘peaceful’ demonstration is likely to quickly turn violent as the rock-throwers seek a response.

    The ISM simply wants propaganda to delegitimate Israel.

  11. Yisrael;

    Your question is a valid one, but the obvious problem with your conclusion is that you don’t see what I do remove everyday.

    I have yet to remove comments about “dirty Arabs” getting what they deserve, and their are plenty to compare this quote you pick to.

    But what I have removed are statements that are inherantly anti-semetic and seem to be serious calls for violence against jewish people.

    I have removed so many that there is a growing list of banned readers here who are convinced I am a Hasbara agent of some kind.

    Of course you won’t see those comments so you will of course not believe me. But any reader here will probably be fully capable of verifying my statement…

    … that is of course if you choose to consider the possibility that you may in fact be jumping to a conclusion prematurely.

    To answer your question, yes. People commenting here call Arabs “filth” and “terrorists” and “scum” all the time. And I leave those statements.

    I remeove things like “raghead” “nigger” “kike” and so forth because that’s just racist crap.

    Do you understand the difference?

    As far as “hate and stupidity” is concerned, I would advise you take a look around. If you think you have stumbled onto StormFront you sadly mistaken.

    Of course, if you are ignorant enough or blind enough to think that ANY critisism of Israel is automatically on the same level as that, then there is nothing I can do for you.

    If that is the case, then sir, it is your ignorance and your blind faith regardless of the facts presented that is at least part of the problems we face these days.

    If you can’t see that there is actually a difference between fact-based critisism and anti-semitism, then sadly, there is nothing anyone can say to help shed light on the subject… or any subject for that matter.

  12. speedy

    So basically what you are saying is just a variation of the old “human shield” mythology, is that right?

    Justify the innocent victims of Israel by blaming the organization who put them there?

    Is that it?

  13. “The ISM simply wants propaganda to delegitimate Israel.”

    So am I too assume that it was the ISM that is illegally blockading Gaza for the past 4 years?

    Or maybe it was the ISM who ordered the IDF to attack a walled off and defenseless people in Gaza for 22 days killing 1,400 of them?

    Perhaps it was the ISM who ordered the Mossad to forge passports and kill a Palestinian leader in a foreign country?

    Maybe the ISM denied Chomsky entrance into the West Bank?

    Perhaps the ISM met with the Israeli leaders this past week and came up with a plan to attack the flotilla with the IDF forces?

    Maybe it was the ISM who revealed that Israel had been secretly meeting with the aparthied government of South Africa to sell them banned weapons?

    Perhaps the ISM is really the organization behind the building of illegal settlements in the West Bank?

    Do you think that is the case, speedy?

    Do you think that is what this is all about? Or is that just more pleasant a thought than to say admit that Israel’s worst enemy right now… is Israel?

  14. willyloman

    no, not mythology. Attract young and idealistic but naive students and place them in harms way. Then provoke an Israeli response that is likely to hurt them. Make sure the photographers get the bloody pictures. Then publish them and blame Israel for an ‘over response’.

    There is no mythology here. Hamas as well as other Palestinian terror groups typically place their own citizens as well as internationals in the front lines to claim that Israel targets civilians-they then brag about how clever they are.. The media is happy to use these stories and folks like you are quick to believe them. But then, you have a built in predisposition and contrary evidence will not have any effect.

  15. Well if this website isn’t just a cesspool of hatred and violence – incenerate Israel? Nazis didn’t go far enough? No wonder people are shooting you guys in the face with tear gas canisters. At least you’re honest though – not like the “peace activists” who ended up in Davey Jones’ locker…Arrrrr.

  16. Lets just tackle the Gaza allegations.

    1. Israel left Gaza without preconditions and even left a high tech agricultural infrastructure that was promptly destroyed.

    2. Hamas, a terrorist group whose agenda explicitly calls for the extermination of all Jews took power with electoral support from the Gazans, away from the slightly more moderate Fatah party. They then promptly murdered much of their opposition.

    3. They then began a campaign of 8-10,000 rocket attacks over 8 years from the defenseless Gaza area that targeted
    Israeli civilians.

    4. When Israel finally went in to bring quiet and security for Israeli citizens (20% of whom are Arab) the world claimed it was a cruel response. I’m not sure how else one responds to 8 years of random rocket attacks, perhaps you have a better idea.

    5. If you support Hamas, I assume you support their agenda whose central tenet is the extermination of Jews. If you advocate that, I don’t think there is much anyone can say to alter your perspective. But willyloman is definitely the right tag.

  17. Well, look at that…

    the apologist lurkers got what they wanted. A full day of intelligent discussion and they add nothing. Moments after someone leaves a comment they can latch onto, the megaphone crowd shows up to lay claim to the victims status once again.

    “No wonder people are shooting you guys in the face with tear gas canisters”

    justify shooting a 21 year old girl in the face because of what someone says in responce to it on a blog?

    That is just beautiful. Do you actually think that kind of twisted logic works? Or does it not matter as long as you get comments that you can cloud the issue with?

    Why don’t you take a que from the IDF spokesman and just call us all “the militant left” while you are at it?

    or better still, just get it over with and call us all anti-semites and Nazis.

  18. speedy

    who exactly was it that was using human shields? Hmm let me think…

    oh yeah, I remember… thanks for bringing it up…

    “Israel’s supreme court has banned the use of Palestinian human shields in arrest raids, saying the practice violates international law.”

    “You cannot exploit the civilian population for the army’s military needs, and you cannot force them to collaborate with the army,” Aharon Barak said.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/4314898.stm

    and what about those claims of Hamas using human shields?

    “Still, in the view of Israeli leaders, diplomats and spokesmen, Hamas is to blame for the carnage, even though the bodies of the civilians may be pocked with wounds meted out by Israeli bombs, artillery and bullets. The slain non-combatants, they say repeatedly, have been used by Hamas as “human shields”.

    … Then the spokesman for the UN relief agency in Gaza, Christopher Gunness, said the organisation was “99.9 per cent certain” that there had been no militants or militant activity within the school compound. The agency also said that all its schools and other facilities were clearly marked and that their locations had been provided to the Israel Defense Forces.

    Mark Regev, the chief spokesman for Ehud Olmert, the Israeli prime minister, replied that Hamas was responsible for the deaths because it had used the civilians as “human shields” to try to make their own positions immune from attack. Mr Regev offered no evidence that Hamas fighters had forced Gazan civilians at gunpoint to provide cover for their attacks or protection from retaliation.

    While actual proof that Hamas is using human shields appears to be lacking in this incident and others, the repeated accusation by Israel helps buy time and dilutes international pressure for a ceasefire.”

    http://www.thenational.ae/article/20090113/FOREIGN/591536290/1140

    hmmmm… the claim that the victims are responsible for the civilian deaths through the use of the “human shields for propaganda purposes” in order to dilute international pressure on Israel.

    hmmm….. that does sound familiar, doesn’t it?

  19. Oh come on, anti-semites and Nazis is so 1930s. Besides, you seem far too unstable to meet the strict regimen of the German military during that time period. I’m not sure they would have taken you. Militant left? I doubt it – you’re far too comfortable enabling hatred from your crappy blog. But self-righteous? Absolutely. Irrelevant? Sure. Oddly obsessed with Israel and Jews? Yes. You know you are. But it’s ok. You’ll find your place in this crazy mixed-up world. And hey, maybe it is with some sort of Islamic group or crypto-hate site that needs to purge the world of others for their own peace of mind. Look, they need writers too, and don’t take this the wrong way, but you could probably use the work.

  20. ahhh… going for the “enabler” status slant, are we?

    That’s right. Anyone with a link to organizations like B’TSelem and Free Gaza and Norman Finkelstein’s blog must qualify for the NEW CLASSIFICATION STATUS of the “terrorists” enabler.

    got it Mush.

    Heres the difference between you and I Mush; I don’t write to the rigid restrictions of “a cause”.

    Now I can understand how someone like you can’t understand that.

    What I write, I write because I see something that is unjust or untrue and is being passed off by a complicit political or media concensus. I write because it is what I feel about what I research. That’s it.

    There is no organization telling me where I have to go and what I have to say in order to advance THEIR CAUSE.

    Do you understand the differnece?

    I also don’t expect monetary gain for what I do. Is that concept registering with you?

    Now, you are free to make floating accusations toward me, much like those that were made about Finkelstein for instance when his detractors claimed his writings, as well-researched and articulated as they are, were going to be used BY THE RACISTS….

    you see, that is what Finkelstein’s critics did when they couldn’t twist his words into anti-semitism…

    they said his words “inspired” others to that end.

    They never understood that it was the ACTIONS of the Israeli Defense Forces that inspired the international anger… they just focused on people who called ATTENTION TO THEM as if they were the problem. Everything will be ok as long as no one mentions how wrong these actions are. Those that do are inspiring anti-semitism. Kind of a backwards way of looking at it, if you ask me. But that is just me.

    You see how that works? Rational dissent becomes anti-semetic hate-speech via the “6 degrees of al Qaeda” theory.

    Clever little manipulation trick, but still, a trick.

    And yes, I could always use the work. And as you can see, I would be better at it than you guys, if I were to put my mind to it. Would there be an opening at your firm? The cubicle down the hall open? Judging from your work, I can tell you I would be demanding the corner office right off the bat.

  21. Willloman

    Any comment about the missiles fired at Israel by Hamas over an 8 year period? What’s the proper response. What would the US do if rockets were fired at American cities from Canada. They are much too polite to do that but go along with the fantasy and provide an answer.

    How about the genocidal intentions of Hamas. Is it mere rhetoric or is it something we should be concerned about. If they are kidding, should Israel go along with the joke and have a good laugh over Turkish coffee with the Hamas leadership? If they are not, how should Israel respond. The last time someone decided to kill lots of Jews the world discovered he really mean’t it and lots of Jews, as well as non-Jews were killed. Where do you stand Willy on genocide? Are you for it or against. If you are against how can you defend Hamas-or Fatah for that matter who still teaches their children that killing Jews in the name Islam is virtuous. All we need is a strong yes or no to these questions. This is a test!!! Wrong answers mark you as a vicious antisemite and the conversation ends.

  22. That is the difference between most of us commentors and Willy….. it is plain to see that zionists are zooming in to attack this article because it supports the young woman who lost an eye due to a hateful soldier…… there was no need to harm her…
    Willy is not deleting the hateful comments aimed at him… but if this was my blog, I would delete them.
    DeLeon, you are saying nothing of importance… name calling and ignorant insults give insights to you…. you might as well be calling yourself ‘unstable’.. you certainly sound like it.
    Speedy, you must have a problem with ‘reading’ and get your facts confused because of it. I am sorry you have that problem….. get someone else to explain things to you. At least you are trying.

    Yisrael; if you support the zionists, then you are a strange bird if you choose to test ‘civil liberties’…. I don’t think the zionists know what civil liberties are, but I am pleased that you are beginning to test them…. maybe it will free you. And get this straight, The Arabs are mostly good people…. and when rude comments are made about them , the comments stay but are rebutted by most other commentors…..
    Willy is a very fine person……. you leave him alone.
    If I had this blog, I would delete all of you….
    go study your torah and remember the Ten Commanments….
    and don’t think God is not listening to you…..

  23. Whoa, whoa, whoa, who are you arguing with up there? Certainly not me. It seems to me like you’re projecting a whole lot of pent up stuff and then indulging in some severely masturbatory rhetoric. What have I written that says anything about a) your links to left-wing groups, or accusations of “terrorism” – come on man – let’s just take a deep breath here b) my “cause”, which you fail to identify, what is it? c) the organization controlling me? who would that be? They certainly aren’t doing a good job of keeping me fed. It must be hard to sleep with all those balck helicopters swooping in…And look, I have not called you an anti-semite, yet you keep bringing it up – a little touchy eh? I also never uttered the name Finkelstein, but sure, I’ll give you a freebie – he’s a total douche. And who are “you guys” ? Listen, you seem to have a whole bunch of axes to grind. Kind of like some old guy who you ask to break a dollar and who starts ranting about “the Navajo” or “Taft”. I just thought I’d chime in here because we both know you don’t give two cents about that poor girl who lost her eye. Sure, you hate Israel, but that’s not too original. Let’s just set the record straight – I don’t think you’re a terrorist, I don’t think you’re “Qaeda” and I don’t think you’re indulging in hate speech, you seem to be just another token “leftist” who loves the rush of flirting with it. But I could be wrong. Maybe you’re the ONE!!!!!

  24. Hey Jan

    welcome to the party. Since you studiously avoided providing facts and offered ad hominem judgments, I am eagerly awaiting your facts. I am certain they will be amusing. By the way, this young woman is clearly a victim – but she is a victim of misplaced idealism and of a cruel organization that clearly states that it seeks to place young internationals in harms way for propaganda purposes. Perhaps you should ISM and see for your yourself.

  25. Sorry to leave you out Jan – I didn’t see you there. I don’t know – if I call someone “unstable” then I’m unstable? So, then, when you called me unstable, you’re unstable? I’m confused – better go take my meds. What’s boggling my mind is how all your hatred jives with the peace-love jargon? Does it just come and go and you’re kind of used to the contradiction or are we touching on the very heart of some of the demons that drive you? Oh, right – and one other thing. How do you know that “most Arabs are good people”? I know it because I live amongst them, and work with them, but just curious as to your experience.

  26. speedy

    for future reference, when you chose to make a statement of fact on this site, we tend to give more credibility to those who at least attempt to post a lnik that verifies their statements, rather than just making unsupported claims.

    for instance… look at the comments I left dealing with the “human shields” mythology.

    see how that works?

    now lets take your new, unsupported claims…

    first of all, Hamas’s rockets into Israel. Let’s see what an ISRAELI organization says about them…

    http://www.btselem.org/English/Statistics/Casualties.asp

    according to B’TSelem there were 4791 Palestinians killed by Israeli forces from 2000-2008 – in the occupied territories

    during the same time-frame 490 Israelis were killed in Israel.

    952 Palestinian minors were killed by IDF forces

    2187 – “Palestinians who did not take part in the hostilities and were killed by Israeli security forces ( not including the objects of targeted killings).”

    Now as far as those “rockets” are concerned…

    during the first 5 months of the cease fire of 2008, take a look at this table…

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:MonthlyRocketHits.svg

    as you can see, once the cease fire agreement went into effect, the number dropped off to nearly “0”

    but then, something happened in Nov. 2008.

    What could that have been?

    Oh yeah. While the Americans were pre-occupied with the election of their president, Israel decided to break the cease fire and kill 6 Palestinians in Gaza.

    As soon as hamas retaliated, Israel pointed at them and said “see? we are justified to carry out operation cast lead”…. and they did.

  27. speedy

    “What would the US do if rockets were fired at American cities from Canada”

    what a cliched argument that is…

    perhaps we should invade most of Canada and steal their land and section their population off into a modern day Warsaw Ghetto…. occasionally launching attacks into the caged population killing off a few hundred innocent civlians….

    then when Canada starts lobbing “rockets” into America, THEN we can attempt to make that comparison…

    but ONLY then.

    (come on man. You can do better than that.)

  28. Mush

    “What’s boggling my mind is how all your hatred jives with the peace-love jargon?”

    see? That’s the problem isn’t it? Just can’t trust those “peace-mongers” can you? Has to be an angle right? has to be some kind of catch.

  29. Mush

    “I know it because I live amongst them, and work with them, but just curious as to your experience.”

    Got a lot of Arabs living with you in Israel right dead smack between Gaza and the West Bank?

    Thats where you are right?

  30. What in the world makes you people think someone INTENTIONALLY shot this woman in the eye? They probably fire tear gas canisters indiscriminately into the crowd and while aware it could cause a bruise I doubt they anticipate it would cost someone an eye or had ANY interest at all in hurting this innocent woman.

    Anyone who injects themselves into the Pal-Israeli conflict has to to know there’s some risk. The soldiers may have been irresponsible in firing tear gas canisters into the crowd… but the fact is nobody here has any clue about the situation, motive or what really happened. If anything this brings out the bias and hate in so many that indicates why this conflict exists.

  31. “What in the world makes you people think someone INTENTIONALLY shot this woman in the eye?”

    …. eye witness reports.

    try actually READING the article next time. thanks

  32. Don’t waste your time Jan trying to pursuade these fellows the difference between right and wrong. It’s plain to see their here to subvert the truth. We know who they are, what they represent. Today, June 1, 2010, there are thousands of these people all over the internet today subverting the facts relivant to what occured yesterday. Willy, isn’t that refered to
    DAMAGE CONTROL?

    Heres what is eventually going to happen. And we know this is fact. Every day, new groups, swarms of American citizens, open their eyes to the realities of what the US gets in exchange for it’s ten million dollar per day gift to Israel . Every day they finally see that all our $$$ does is make us the enablers of the kind of conduct we witnessed yesterday. And further, they come to realize that this enableing is what is driving the Muslim world to Jahad against this country.
    And then they think, well, perhaps we should NOT give Israel all this $$$, all the lattest weaponary, etc because after all, all we get in exchange is a pak o trouble that we don’t really need.

    You Israeli supporter trolls come on here every time there is a major incident and try to subvert the truth. Every time, there you guys are, with all your subversive rhetoric. What do you all think, that we all just started yesterday? That we can’t see what you are, what you are here to try? And as always, like all the prior incidents, here your guys are again spewing out all you accusations that we’re only a bunch of Jew Haten Clan members. Well let me tell you this pal, this ain’t got nothing to do with Jews, or religion for that matter. It’s about the Unexceptible conduct of a particular government that had better change it’s way, and pretty damm quickly or else, that ten million dollar per day gift that we allow our government to send to that OTHER government in question, is going to be cut off. Some how, some way? You think you people got all the pull here? we’ll see. Your waking up that perverbial “sleeping giant” and your going to fill him with a terrible resolve.

    Hey,,,,nice talkin to ya. shalom brother

  33. you know…

    I just finished an article called “The Memorial Day Massacre: The Blame is Ours” in which I argue that what has happened in the internatinal waters off the coast of Gaza is our fault, more than any other.

    “our” meaning U.S. citizens.

    Now you guys, Speedy, Mush and plegy, you can’t be expected to have seen that, as I doubt it’s listed in what ever megaphone software is being used now to help manage public opinions.

    But you might want to check it out.

    Because as much as you would like to think this is all about racism or anti-semitism or just “hate” in general…

    its not.

    Its about taking responsibility and holding those responsible accountable for their actions and what happens when you don’t.

    and honestly, we are as much to blame as anyone else.

    Its an interesting concept. Holding people accountable rather than attempting to dismiss the opinions of those that do. It produces all kinds of good results like … say… less dead cvilians… more positive feelings toward the governments that actually stand up for human rights… see how that theory works?

    instead of paying lipservice to our responsiblity to the rest of humanity, what would happen if we actually did it? radical concept from a member of the “militant left” I guess…. but it’s a good article.

    I hope you guys check it out.

  34. and hey, speedy…

    try to get up to date on the talking points, would you?

    ““The government failed the test of results; blaming the organizers of the flotilla for causing the deaths by ignoring Israel’s orders to turn back is inadequate,” wrote Aluf Benn, a columnist for Haaretz…”

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/02/world/middleeast/02flotilla.html?hp

  35. hey b-waves… check this out…

    ” Reports are still coming in as to the full extent of the senseless Israeli violence. Of course, I expect Israel’s apologists in the press and in the United States government to shift into high gear to support Israel’s lying machine. Take note of their names. The 12,000 internet squatters/written word grenade throwers, hired by the Israeli Foreign Ministry to defend Israel and attack peace activists online, are already busy spreading their orchestrated disinformation in cyberspace. Be very careful what you read and believe from special interest press and the internet. You could be reading one of Israel’s hired hacks.”

  36. Finally getting back to here. I read this: “Of course, if you are ignorant enough or blind enough to think that ANY critisism of Israel is automatically on the same level as that, then there is nothing I can do for you.”

    No, I am not. I think even the most polar ideologies and opinions could be debated in a civil manner. For otherwise, it really doesn’t matter what the exact problem is for the violent language and imagery the is employed is an expression not of ‘can I find some form of agreement’ but I hate this group or that and all I do is look for an opportunity to use language that could be even considered as incitement to violence. No one is interested in finding out exactly what happened, or close enough to the truth but rather to placate his/her own hate and spite.

    Like this example by a Said: “If I had this blog, I would delete all of you….go study your torah and remember the Ten Commanments….and don’t think God is not listening to you…..”.

    Thank you for clarifying your position on this matter.

  37. once again your problem with logic is obvious…

    you didn’t come here and offer an opinion or enter into discussion.

    you came here and immediately addressed two comments left by only two readers. you ignored all the rest. you ignored all of those who had repudiated those statements prior to your arrival.

    you weren’t looking for civil debate or to discuss the topic at hand, and it is an important topic.

    instead, you came here to accuse all of those who participate based on the actions of a few.

    that, sir, tells me exactly what your purpose has been here from the start. and it is obvious.

    look at all the topics and the links posted above. many to chose from, and what do you do with this latest comment?

    you come in and look for another one you can attack.

    we engaged in all manners of topics since you departed and yet you come back bringing up the only one you are interested in…. the only one you think gives you leverage.

    you are the one who has clarified his position, sir.

  38. Well, Yisrael, you are welcome…… I think. Not sure about your wording; I thnk your sentence construction needs a little revising.
    ???? “it really doesn’t matter what the exact problem is for the violent language and imagery the is employed is an expression not of ‘can I find some form of agreement’ but I hate this group or that and all I do is look for an opportunity to use language that could be even considered as incitement to violence” ??? :the above paragraph is taken from your previous comment:
    Anhyway, I believe God is watching and will hold those who murder accountable.
    And he will clarify your position, even if I find whatever your ‘position’ is ….. a little confusing.

  39. Willy and B-waves….
    your comments are awesome….. and you are right…
    thanks ……. :)

  40. Jan wrote she hopes that an Israeli soldier will lose an eye. well one soldier already did, thanks to these so called “demostrators”. this is what called “an eye for an eye” http://www.haaretz.co.il/hasite/pages/ShArt.jhtml?contrassID=1&subContrassID=5&sbSubContrassID=0&itemNo=586900

    When I read some of the comments here, well it’s hard to feel bad about a person like this loosing an eye…

  41. ah… another Israeli from Tel Aviv…. nice to have you drop by.

    as far as comments are concerned, how do you like this one from a neighbor of yours in East Jerusalem?

    “(Rachel) Corrie was a useful idiot who became a pancake.”

    http://willyloman.wordpress.com/2010/06/01/the-memorial-day-massacre-the-blame-is-ours/#comment-17439

    how do you like that one?

  42. and since we are talking about IDF soldiers, how about what these guys said…

    “One soldier is quoted saying: “The soldiers were made to understand that their lives were the most important, and that there was no way our soldiers would get killed for the sake of leaving civilians the benefit of the doubt.”

    Another says: “People were not instructed to shoot at everyone they see, but they were told that from a certain distance when they approach a house, no matter who it is – even an old woman – take them down.”

    this was my favorite part

    “Other allegations in the testimonies of the 14 conscripts and 12 reserve soldiers include:

    • Civilians were used as human shields, entering buildings ahead of soldiers

    • Some of the troops had a generally aggressive, ill-disciplined attitude

    • White phosphorus was used in civilian areas in a way some soldiers saw as gratuitous and reckless

    • Many of the soldiers said there had been very little direct engagement with Palestinian militants”

    Now here is the part that involves you Nir…

    “The report says Israeli troops and the people who justify their actions are “slid[ing] together down the moral slippery slope”.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8149464.stm

  43. “East Jerusalem”? But isn’t that “Arab Jerusalem”? Or do you mean a Jewish person living there?

    In any case, that’s an awful description, even if it is technically correct (actually, she simply was covered with earth and not crushed by the tractor) but there are some things you don’t say.

    My original point.

  44. clearly its an Israeli… come on now…. you think a Palestinian whose homes are being destroyed in East Jerusalem would be quoting CFR and JINSA? come on now…

    But you just can’t bring yourself to say it can you? always has to be a qualifier…. I mean, do you hear yourself?

    “The report says Israeli troops and the people who justify their actions are “slid[ing] together down the moral slippery slope”.

    an IDF soldier came to that conclusion. perhaps there is a lesson for you in it somewhere.

  45. and since you seem to want to put that spin out there as well…

    “An individual giving the name Richard, who stated that he witnessed Corrie’s death, as recorded by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz:

    “There’s no way he didn’t see her, since she was practically looking into the cabin. At one stage, he turned around toward the building. The bulldozer kept moving, and she slipped and fell off the plow. But the bulldozer kept moving, the shovel above her. I guess it was about 10 or 15 meters that it dragged her and for some reason didn’t stop. We shouted like crazy to the driver through loudspeakers that he should stop, but he just kept going and didn’t lift the shovel. Then it stopped and backed up. We ran to Rachel. She was still breathing.[27]”

  46. At some point in time Mr. Medad, you may just learn that I am not your enemy. Because I am not saying anything that well intended Israelis aren’t saying among themselves…

    “No matter how one looks at the conduct of the Israeli government and the IDF, it is hard to understand how stupid and tragic it was. Time and again, Israel tries to prove that what can’t be solved by force can be solved by more force. Over and over, the policies of force fail. The problem is that with each failure, the part of the world in which we would like to belong is losing patience with us” Haaretz

    “Here in Israel, we have still yet to learn the lesson: We are no longer defending Israel. We are now defending the siege. The siege itself is becoming Israel’s Vietnam.” Haaretz

    “No serious observer can argue that Israel lacked better alternatives at its disposal. But the trigger-happy Likud-led government responded with an all-too-familiar reflex of maximum and brutal force. This time, it pulled down the temple.

    It is a tragedy for those activists who have lost their lives. It is a tragedy for the Palestinians of Gaza. Above all it is a tragedy for the people of Israel, victims too of a vain and foolish government.” Hurriyet

  47. Hurriyet? is that the newspaper as a source or your cry in Turkish for liberty?

    And permit me to snicker at Haaretz as “well-meaning”. It is a liberal, embarrassed-to-be-Zionist journal supporting intermarriage, denuding Jewish nationalism and anti-religious. We call it Ha-Ha-Haaretz.

  48. so I guess you don’t support intermarrage, Mr. Medad?

    what is the deal with all those “Lost” posters put in Israel? Basically, were they targeting Jews living outside of Israel for marrying non-jews and thus calling them “Lost”?

    http://religionandstateinisrael.blogspot.com/2009/09/video-new-masa-israel-ad-campaign.html

    do you believe that a jewish person has to marry another jewish person or they are “Lost”?

  49. Willy,
    First I’m not from Tel Aviv (wich is one ugly shithole), I’m from the beautiful city Haifa.
    Second , I don’t see a point arguing with you because I’m obviously not going to convince you or your friends. so I’ll just answear your allegations and that’s it

    “One soldier is quoted saying: “The soldiers were made to understand that their lives were the most important, and that there was no way our soldiers would get killed for the sake of leaving civilians the benefit of the doubt.”

    Well he was quite right though a bit extreme, as a reservist NCO in the IDF my soldiers safety and my own come before the other side civilians, the IDF took extreme measures of caution in Operation Cast Lead and in the Second Lebanon War to ensure the safety of civilians compared to other armed forces around the world including your own (wichever it is). you can search for roof knockig and the tons of leaflets warning everyone (including terroris)t with specific location and date and destroying the element of surprise.

    Another says: “People were not instructed to shoot at everyone they see, but they were told that from a certain distance when they approach a house, no matter who it is – even an old woman – take them down.”

    You got it all wrong, in all armed forces there’s a certain thing called “Suspect arrest procedure” wich means you don’t let anyone get close to you (we’ve dealt with women and children suicide bombers in the past including in operation cast lead) You try to stop suspects from approaching you, first you shout in arabic “stop” loud and clear several times, after that you shoot in the air, if the suspect doesn’t stop, you shoot him in the legs. At anytime if you identify that the suspect has a weapon AND risks your life you shoot to the center body mass. This is what the soldier was talking about.

    Civilians were used as human shields, entering buildings ahead of soldiers.

    IDF soldiers will never use civilians as human shield it’s a cowardly and degrading thing to do (and unlawful). As for “Nohal Shahen” (נוהל שכן) wich is sending a family member or a neighbor of a terrorist inside the house he’s hiding in to tell him to surrender, “human rights groups” complained and the Israeli supreme court ruled this conduct unlawful (against my own opinion), now the army gets the family out and destroy the building on top of the terrorist. (much more refined don’t you think?)

    Some of the troops had a generally aggressive, ill-disciplined attitude.

    You’re kidding right? every military supose to be aggressive, we’re no ballet dancers that’s for sure :) As for undisciplined soldiers who missed behave they were punished, I can remember that one soldier stole a visa card during the operation and he was punished quite harsh (imprisonment for a long time).

    White phosphorus was used in civilian areas in a way some soldiers saw as gratuitous and reckless.

    The IDF doesn’t use white phosphorus as weapon because it’s not effective enough (there are better ways to kill the enemy). The army uses shells containing varying amounts of white phosphorus for specific missions: cover, spotting and illumination.
    In the last operation on a few occasions (I think 2) illumination shells (wich contains a very low amount of white phosphorus) landed BY MISTAKE in populated areas, the army and the goverment apologized for those incidents (and i personally think that if there are civilians that sustained injuries they should get compensations from the parties involved).

    Many of the soldiers said there had been very little direct engagement with Palestinian militants.

    Smart move of the terrorists, too bad for us :) they fight dirty and hide behind civilians, the soldiers tried to engage them but the terrorists ran to populated areas. they know that they are no match for an organized army.

    The report says Israeli troops and the people who justify their actions are “slid[ing] together down the moral slippery slope

    The Goldstone report is twisted and false so there’s no slippery slope. My moral values are on a much higher level than yours.

    You asked Yisrael his opinion about what you call “mix-marriage” and the majority of jews call assimilation, I as a secular jew believe that a jewish person can marry any person who’s jewish or will become jewish through Orthodox conversion (Giyur).

    Finally I wish a quick recovery and good mental health to Emily, she may be a moron but she’s a jewish moron (so I’ve read), so we’re “stuck” with her.

  50. Israel is a cruel, warmongering state. Their occupation over the Palestinians has gone on far too long. The World should give them an ultimatum–give the Palestinians their freedom or become a pariah state akin to North Korea and Iran. Simple as that.

  51. Nir is a sick individual.

    I guess he is a paid disinfo agent and he works for the Israeli PR groups that are swamping the nets now; they are trying to change American opinions in favor of Israel….. he isn’t doing a good job….

  52. i think we should just accept Israel’s version of the law. It is legal to attack a civilian vessel in international waters and massacre its occupants.

    We shouldn’t fight Israel’s conclusion but USE it. ANY israeli craft found in international waters should be subject to attack, and all on board should be killed. Keep the Israeli filth confined to their Nazi paradise and don’t let them pollute international waters. If they stray onto the world community’s ocean, kill the fuckers.

  53. rykart Spoken like the true coward you are. You will never be in any boat and if you were, you would never have the courage to attack. You are only capable of hateful talk. You are a blowhard.
    You never were in the military, that is obvious. You have no sense of honor or duty to protect civilians and direct your fire against enemy combatants only.
    There are military blockades throughout the world. Turkey maintains an air, sea, and land blockade against Armenia. Turkey also has a blockade against Kurdistan. Russia put a blockade on Georgia. It doesn’t matter what side you favor. The fact is that every nation in the world has jurisdiction over what comes in and out of its borders. Gaza is occupied by Israel because Gaza has been making war on Israel for the past 60 years. There are occupations all over the world right now. Whether you believe the occupation is just or not is very separate from the simple fact that Israel will not allow anything to enter Gaza without inspection. No matter how much you complain and condemn you are still a useless coward.

  54. the blockade is considered illegal by almost every nation on the planet. The only thing keeping Israel’s blockade from being broken by the UN Security Council over the last 3 years has been a U.S. veto… and we now see just how far the U.S. will go to support the wishes of Israel over those of the entire world.

    Without wasting time by giving you a free history lesson, it should be good enough to tell you that Gaza has not been “making war on Israel for the past 60 years”… that is a very interesting way of looking at it by the way.

    and by the way, Gaza is not in Israel’s borders. Neither is the West Bank according to international law, if that means anything to an apologist like yourself.

  55. “Even the great American democracy could not have been created without the annihilation of the Indians. There are cases in which the overall, final good justifies harsh and cruel acts that are committed in the course of history.”

    From Survival of the Fittest? An Interview with leading Israeli historian Benny Morris.

  56. Jez, for your information, annihilation means to ‘destroy completely’ and that did not happen with the N. American Indian tribes by the settlements of N. America by the Spanish, English, French, German, Irish, Dutch and India.

  57. Is it possible for a moderator to ensure that racist bile stays off this comment form?

  58. John Smith

    Trust me, what remains is nothing compared to what I have already removed thus far.

    If you have a specific complaint, I will certainly consider it but usually I remove only threats of violence and racial slurs… but I have had to revise that a bit since this topic came up.

    Typically I try to hold to the Noam Chomsky school of thought on free speech here and that it is the speech that most offends us that we must defend if we are to believe in free speech at all.

    There are always limits though.

  59. Willyloman: Well I see I have touched a nerve. Apparently rykart can’t answer for himself. You call me an Israeli apologist. I return the compliment. You are an Arab apologist. Now that we have finished our name calling. I have one question for you: Is it true that the land west of the Jordan River is by right Arab land? If so, is it Arab land by right of history? conquest?; religion?; culture?; or some other reason or combination of reasons?

  60. This is such a sad tragedy. She was protesting for God’s sake. WTF is up with Israeli soldiers?

    The Israeli government should pay big time. Hopefully someone in the MSM will have her on to tell her story. Christ all mighty how many journalist, protesters have been killed or injured in Israel.

    This is criminal

  61. Israel is already feeling the heat whether they know it or not. It’s going to get hotter than the summer heat. Right now, they are trapped from all sides, there’s no place they can go and push their propaganda, NO WAY!!!

    To bring about violence to humanitarian aid activists with no provocation whatsoever and claim that they were being attacked with knives, clubs and whatever…..meanwhile they have MACHINE GUNS, TEAR GAS GRENADES, ARMED TO THE TEETH and yet cry mercy???? WTF!!!

    And to take an eye out of this precious and talented girl who is only 21 and say it is self-defense??? I hope and pray that Emily gets back on her feet and tell OBAMA…….GO TO HELL PUPPET!!!!

    BTW……Where is the puppet Obama??? Car Obama, where are you???

  62. Poor, poor Emily. Against all reason, I’m really hoping that the US comes down hard on Israel for this. She lost her eye, and for what? Why are the Israelis firing tear gas canisters into protests anyway? Have they learnt nothing from Tristan Anderson?

    On another note, one of the most frequent comments I’m seeing about Emily is that she’s the American Jewish Neda Agha Soltan. Can’t win ‘em all, I guess.

  63. Frances, I haven’t seen any such comments comparing the ‘maybe’ murder of Neda to the wounding of Emily. The video of Neda showed the men gathered around her head while they were squeezing red fluid over her mouth and face as she was looking at the camera. No one is sure who ‘maybe’ killed her… many believe she was targeted in order to arouse hatred ……

    So, are you saying the Israeli are trying to arouse animosity against themselves?
    If so, it seems they were successful.

  64. wow what a cesspool of pretentious idiots, get a life.

  65. If she didn’t want to get shot in the eye, she should have kept herself at Cooper Union. You go to the middle of a war zone, expect that things may not end so well.

    And the only reason Americans go to Israel/Palestine is because they’re too afraid of the places in Africa, like Sudan, where they would actually have to put themselves in danger to help someone.

    Basically, going to Palestine has become the equivalent of going to Europe for the summer to see the world a bit. If you’re a bleeding heart type, go to Palestine, act like you’re doing some good, then get home before you’re actually in danger.

  66. I won’t be crying when Israel gets nuked.

  67. calm down people !! no more vile talk try and keep this about the facts and human decency. Emily is a courageous young woman. She was there as a witness for the world. So the Israeli blasted out one of her eyes with which she was the seeing and making witness. If this young Jewish-American woman had suffered the same thing in a democracy demo in Tehran Sec Clinton would be meeting with the Joint Chiefs at the Pentagon. Same if a vessel sailing in International waters under a NATO flag Turkey
    had been attacked by Iran B52’s would be emptying their payloads on Tehran by now.

  68. same thing if this had all happened off the coast of North Korea.

  69. Again in response to Derek…NO ONE wants NOR is there anyone able or intending to NUKE Israel. That is the kind of talk that will give the Zionist licence to concoct a war upon Iran killing millions of Iranians for nothing.

    What we want for Israel (only better) is for the South Africen
    and Soviet Russian transitions. You do not have to destroy
    a country and its people in order to change the ideology.

    By the way no one who cares about Palestine and Palestinians would make such a remark. Conventional or nuclear you cannot attack Israel without killing Palestinians.
    A perfect example was a Pizza Parlour suicide bombing that
    Islamic Jihad was once responsible for. Some poor young kid was brainwashed to do this mission in the name of Islam and Palestine. Turns out that not only was the Jewish
    owner of the pizza parlour very pro-Arab but most of his
    customers were Palestinian Arab-Israeli citizens. That is
    who the kid ended up killing along with himself. This story
    allows shows that the notion of a two-state solution is a
    mirage. These peoples need to live together in a single country with EQUAL RIGHTS for ALL….their growing population and the decreasing water supply alone will force
    that.

  70. I agree with Howard…

    the LAST thing people who support a free Palestinian state want is talk of “nuking Israel”.

    the people of Palestine and the people of Israel can live together… jews and arabs do it all over the world… in Iran for instance.

    the problem is the far-right wing ideology from the Likud Party that has permiated much of the Israeli government much like how the far-right ideology and neoliberalism has overtaken this country.

    without the lies without the fear mongering, without the Orwellian fascist propaganda, the people of Israel would come to understand that they are safest in their nation if they can live in harmony with their neighbors.

    but instead, Israel’s goverrnment, much like ours here, is owned by big business interests who stand to gain billions by taking the land of the Palestinian people and the rights to Gaza’s oil and natural gas reserves.

    Just like the people of America are not the enemy of the Afghanis, so to the people of Israel are not the enemy of the Palestinians…

    no one here, no one here who does not come here to slander this site, bears the people of Israel any ill will.

  71. To Yisrael Medad:
    Israel is a government system based on Zionism. Arabs are nationality/race. No one mentioned anything about Jewish people here. That way your comment would make sense.
    Now since many Israelis are followers of Zionism, saying Israel is filth would mean more like Zionism is filth. to put it in historical context, since Zionism is monster child of Nazism, saying Israel is filth translates to Zionism is filth, which ultimately means Nazism is filth. Since Nazi=Fascist, the person is saying fascism is filth. Now you don’t have a problem with someone saying something against fascists, do you?

  72. I really feel sorry for the girl. But, honestly, I also think that she should know what the risk was by going to a war zone.

  73. I know you guys keep trying to spin this into “she was in a war zone” for the good of the APIAC lobby…

    … but she was not in a “war zone”

    and speaking of calling this a “war”… if they were at “war” wouldn’t that mean that the few little “rockets” fired at Israel are pretty much expected, after all, it is a “war zone” right?

    but of course, it isn’t a “war” as much as you megaphonies would like to have everyone believe….

    its an OCCUPATION… and an ILLEGAL ONE AT THAT

  74. “cinderman, on May 31, 2010 at 11:49 pm Said:

    I hate to say it, but sometimes I think Hitler didn’t take things far enough”

    This is the type of people you associate with and no one even comments that support of genocide against Jews isn’t what you stand for.

  75. Someone leaves a comment on this site, one of 300,000 comments, and you take that and deduce that I stand for “genocide against the jews”?

    is that how logic works in your head?

  76. Willyloman, there are only 76 comments in this thread. Not one of them besides mine takes issue with racist comments in support of Hitlers genocide against Jews.

    What I find illogical is that you take issue with me rather than with “Cinderman’s” support of Hitler!

  77. As you can clearly see, that is not what Cinderman said, PLUS, as you can also see, several commenters, including myself made it clear that what he said is NOT the position of the people on this thread NOR is it the position of the author of this thread.

    Now, if you WISH to make a big issue out of ONE COMMENT among 75 (as you point out yourself) that is your right…

    however, attempting to lump EVERYONE into one category because of ONE comment is not only illogical, it is downright dishonest and an insult to the rest of the readers here.

  78. Steve;

    Well, I am glad to see you are running ads on your site. Might as well make a little money while trying to “defend Israel”, right?

    I know you just started up, in October? So I understand the need to try and gin-up some page views for your advertisers…

    but do your readers a favor… don’t LIE to them in the process.

    You state (and I already took a screenshot so don’t bother editing it now)

    “When I pointed out that in the 70 something comments since no one had criticised this poster for his anti-Semitism I got the following response from Scott Creighton the blogs author,”

    BUT The VERY NEXT COMMENT IS…

    “No we certainly don’t want to see Israel incinerated. You see, Like willy says, what we need is to see israel face the civilized world, from inside a court room”

    and earlier…

    “no one here hope Israel is “incinerated”. But I would like to see them held to the same standards of behavior the rest of the world is held to.”

    and you certainly didn’t mention this…

    “Your question is a valid one, but the obvious problem with your conclusion is that you don’t see what I do remove everyday.

    I have yet to remove comments about “dirty Arabs” getting what they deserve, and their are plenty to compare this quote you pick to.

    But what I have removed are statements that are inherantly anti-semetic and seem to be serious calls for violence against jewish people.

    I have removed so many that there is a growing list of banned readers here who are convinced I am a Hasbara agent of some kind.”

    Its not unheard of for new bloggers to try and make their name going after larger, more established ones, but when you do it at least try and not lie about it in the process

  79. “Well, I am glad to see you are running ads on your site. Might as well make a little money while trying to “defend Israel”, right?”

    I don’t have advertising. I don’t like your implication. I didn’t get personal with you. I simply pointed out that you attacked me and not a Nazi supporter.

    Your point is not a valid one. Israel and Jews are not synonyms. Do you want a medal because some of your readers don’t want to incinerate Israel? What other country in the world would people even contemplate incinerating or not? This though isn’t the point, the original posters comments were about JEWS not Israel. No one in the comments section including yourself has defended Jews from calls to murder them.

    Your implication that I am a “greedy Jew” trying to “bignote” myself at the expense of some hard-working gentile blogger is also false. I do not make a cent from my blog nor would I. It is more likely a projection of why you have a blog.

  80. You really are quite sick aren’t you?

    No one suggested you are a “greedy jew” – either argue the discussion we are having or you will be banned. Don’t make shit up.

    I said any new blogger tries to make a name for themselves going after bigger sites, more established sites. That’s ANYONE… jews, gentiles, atheists… anyone

    The one thing has nothing to do with the other.

    There have been no calls to murder anyone. If there had been serious talk about that, those comments would be gone and the people banned.

    I have a list of about 70 people who are banned at this time. Some called my a Mossad or hasbara agent because I didn’t blame everything on “the jews”…

    … others are gone because they are true anti-semites.

    … others because they hate blacks and use the “N” word to refer to them…

    about 70 people and their IP addresses banned over the past few years.

    Cinderman is not a threat to anyone. He’s an asshole sometimes, but he is not a threat, nor does he really mean what he says.

    But that comment was not a threat either way. He something hateful because of the emotion he felt.

    We all say stupid shit. Like you telling me my comment really meant something about “greedy jews”. stupid.

    But your hateful comment isn’t gone is it? I am not calling you names am I?

    Your comment was stupid, not you. I don’t know you. I don’t even know if you are jewish.

    nor do I care.

    All I care about is that people come here and say what they feel and contribute to the communal discussion in that way. No threats of violence and no racial slurs.

    But while you and I are on the subject, why do you say you have no advertising on your blog when I just checked and there is an American Express ad up on it right this minute?

    And that is not an implication, it is a fact. Now if you would like I can post up a screen shot of your ad on your site next to your comment saying you have no advertising, or you can just come clean and start this whole thing over again.

    or you can be banned because the one thing I don’t like most is dishonesty.

  81. That’s pretty intense right there, hope she continues on with her painting career.

  82. […] There is a good post, with some ugly comments, on the Willy Loman blog, here. […]

  83. I interested it.
    thank you for sharing.
    where i found it more?

  84. There will never be peace since the only thing the Palestinians want is to kill all the Jews and the destruction of Israel.

  85. It’s dreadful the fact how one bad person can change entire life of other person simply because he can do it physically. He definitely should be punished, sooner or later…

  86. I’m really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one today..

  87. It’s a standard WordPress theme, it’s one of many you can choose and no I didn’t pay for it, it’s free.

    and thank you for the compliment.

  88. A formidable share, I simply given this onto a colleague who was doing just a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast as a result of I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love reading extra on this topic. If possible, as you develop into experience, would you thoughts updating your weblog with extra details? It is extremely helpful for me. Massive thumb up for this blog put up!

  89. Your writing styles of the blog are awesome I liked it very much interesting. Thanks for the compliments.

  90. I’m curious to find out what blog platform you’re using? I’m having some small security issues with my latest blog and I’d like to find something more secure. Do you have any recommendations?

  91. We have flooded the very few people of the nation of Israel with large sums of dear USA taxpayers dollars. Our congress which today has an approval rating of 9 percent has flooded the israel people with many special things that they do not provide for USA citizens. In at least on city in Israel there is a bus line for secular jews and one for orthodox. Both lines were funded by the USA. My community does not have one bus much less two divided basically by which type of religion you are. To me a traditional orthodox jew would be riding a donkey instead of a bus. We provide the little nation of Israel money to provided full medical insurance for those of the correct religion while 40 percent of our citizens are left without. The problem today is our friend the nation of Israel has grown up like most spoil brats to be a problem. Maybe it is time to do what Ike first did in administration which was to cut all aid to Israel and allow them to adjust to reality. BTW someone should also do a dna test to find out how many of the people of Israel are actually from the old community and who are not. It might make a big difference in the claim they own the land. All this would be unnecessary if God, the almighty had just recorded his gift.
