“Kind of hard not to think about the Mavi Marmara incident that's still being brought up as an example of Israeli human rights violations. 9 folks died on that boat which was manned by more than a few extremists carrying machetes. So, HuffPo, how many of the dead in Turkey were carrying machetes?
I'm sure you've got other article at the top of the fold, right? Or there will be at least 5 follow-ups by this time tomorrow, eh? Any special features penned by your expert Middle Eastern opinion makers?
Oh, and 100 comments so far. After 5 days of riots and attacks on citizens staging a peaceful protest.
That's right, Arianna. Not only do you profit off of hate mongers, but you don't do a very good job of educating them yourself. This website is a joke, and you, my funny speaking sweetie pie, will be going to hell.”
“If there was an actual, systematic segregation between the Jews and Arabs in Israel, one might think the all-powerful, all-encompassing, and all-oppressive Jewish state would use a Hebrew word to describe its practices, and not resort to the inbred Germanic-Dutch used by the White folks in South Africa.
Good old peace loving, history denying, Israel bashing Fred.”

“They do have such a word: "hafrada". Most people do not like to use that word on the outside because it does not have a legal status or meaning like "apartheid" does. Nonetheless, I don;'t use either word.
Occupation will do. That is the problem that needs to be solved--to the benefit of everyone.”

“If there wasn't? wow delusion grandeur much?
Israel is synonymous with apartheid. The systematic discrimination is codified in the constitution of Israel.”
“I see that Arianna Huffington has done another great job bringing clarity to the Middle East by making money off the traffic of a forum that is deeply rooted in bashing Israel and insulting her citizens.
Stay KKKlassy, Arainna.”

“Israel has earned it's reputation much like you are earning your own.”
“You know nothing about Israeli prisons. What a joke that this website caters to such Big Lie meeley mouthed dipwads. But, hey, even a billionairess like Arianna Huffington knows that best surefire way to make money through the internet is to encourage anti-Semites to post, post, post to their pathetic shell of a heart's content. You stay KKKlassy, Chump.”

“Once again, someone who equates anything critical of Israel as anti-Semitism. It really gets old fast. Instead of attacking everyone and basically libeling them...why don't you go learn some facts?”

“I don`t see many anti-Semitic post here. Now anti- Israeli policies that`s a diffirent story”
“Really? The fact that I can come up with a paragraph explaining your blatant idiocy has me crying to Grand Master Pipsqeek? Whatever you say, Champ, because nothing you say ever makes sense. Now, continue to suffer while continues to exist.”
“Actually, I think it's extremely ignorant of you. You know more than world history because world history is some Zionist tool that the Joos use to bash over the heads of Palestinian leadership who can't seem to work for a peace. Because, as Ben Gurion said, the Joos are evil.
“You are such a victim. And then you pull some quote out of your tuchus that supposedly is proof of your victimhood. Because nothing says I Am Intelligent than taking a quote out of context to sum up how YOU are supposedly being USED by the JOOS.
I feel for you, Man. Either that, or I've drank too much coffee on an empty stomach. Ooops, there goes that feeling for you again.”
“Now now... This is HuffPo, where traffic only flows when Israel is the center of controversy, not the Palestinians. After all, there isn't a worldwide Palestinian cabal which controls the banks and utility companies and government authorities. See, the Palestinian cause can only be spread via the Mullahs and Saudi Arabian princes, and those guys are sweet, loving creatures who have never been the subject of a Tsarist hate literature.
No. We can't blame HuffPo for going to the well that is overtly seeking reaction to evil Jooish practices. Ariana needs her traffic that brings her money and notoriety.”
“Well, if you read news about the "illegal blockade" and "illegal settlements" then you're not really reading news. You're reading opinions that are barely fact based.
The blockade is not illegal. There are illegal settlements, but not all are illegal, and not all illegal settlements are due to Israel. Some are due to the Palestinians and Druze building illegal structures.
But, yeah, you know all about Israel's battle with "Palestine".
I think you need to pick up a book, Bro. From Time Immemorial by Joan Peters gives a really good historical breakdown. Or don't read it; that's your prerogative. But don't start spouting stuff that only makes you look like an imbecile. Because your comment is wrong on so many levels, that if I really were as objective an observer as you claim to be, that I would want to get my ducks in a row before they fly off and get shot down.”
“This might interest you, so I'll mention it. The rest of the world's opinions really don't matter in a case like this. Really. Honestly. I mean it. It just don't.
Like when the UN places Syria on its Human Rights Commission. Or when the world has a conference on what to do about terrorism and they fail to invite Israel.
It just doesn't matter. None of it.
What's just as important is that you don't get to decide facts like another country's capital city. I know you think you're great, and witty, and "totally with it", but it just doesn't matter what you think. Especially when you can't even comprehend that your opinion does not equate world fact.
Try to get over yourself. There's not much there, so it shouldn't be too hard.
I do like that Marching Lockstep with Israel comment. Is that like Goosestepping? You know, some of us are just aware of certain facts, I guess, while others will keep denying these same facts for the rest of their pathetic little self-important lives.
it's been great chatting with you. Really. Superduper swell.”

“"What's just as important is that you don't get to decide facts like
another country's capital city."
And where in my post did I decide that. I never realized I had such power. Wow!
I must say you got one thing correct. I am totally with it. And I'm glad you recognize that all important fact.
“The subject at hand that I am complaining about is the anti-Israel bigots declaration that Tel Aviv is the capital of Israel. Tel Aviv has never been the capital of Israel; the capital of Israel has always been Jerusalem. Therefore, my connection to the declaration of "fact" is thrust upon those who are denying reality. In reality, I am not the King of Huffington Post. I don't respect it here, anyway. And, in reality, Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
I don't write to the headlines. I write to the vocal contingent who whine away. In retrospect, I should have addressed that in my post.”
“Flag away, Hate Monger. Peddling filth on a free message boards is all you do all day anyway. If this joke of a publication actually gave a dingdongdingaling about credibility, they wouldn't let the filth like you control the debate that only exists in your pathetic, obtuse cranium.”

“Moderates Please Take Note here with his comment.”
“Nothing like playing to your audience! As I've mentioned before, Sam7even is a hatemonger dipstick with little in his life outside of the need to bash Israel over every little thing, real or false. Stay in your basement, Sammy. Keep living the dream of denial.”
Sam7even on Jul 29, 2012 at 16:23:42
“Really You rather use insults then adding to the conversation.
If the Israeli government treated the Palestinians humanly then the criticism would stop. Israel has been doing it for 62 years and to this day.
“Shows what little you know. The Knesset-- or the capitol building of Israel-- has always been in Jerusalem. I'm guessing, for a lot longer than you've been alive.
Which means, quite simply, you have been denying reality. Probably to make you feel better about your own fears and hate.
That's cool, I guess, if being a scared dipstick is the key to your livelihood.”
anothervoter on Jul 30, 2012 at 14:02:29
“When I first read your post I said to myself, this guys correct, Israel does in fact consider Jerusalem it's capital.
Unfortunately the rest of the world does not. And they show it by having their embassies located in Tel-Aviv. (Capitals being the traditional location of embassies)
Then I get to the part were you think my "own fears and hate" along with calling me a "scared dipstick" (which I find out is a favorite word of yours) Had something to do with my post. (Unfortunately there isn't a typeface for sarcasm / snark. If there was I would use it)
At that point I say to myself, here is a guy (gal?) who actually had something constructive to point out, then throws it all in the garbage by personally attacking me. You were doing ok with with the first sentence in your post up until that point. Like I said it was something I wasn't aware of. But once you launched your attack, you're credibility rating dropped to zero.
And just so you know not every Jewish person in the world marches in lockstep with Israel and its policies.
“I think I'm going to declare myself the King of Huffington Post. Ergo, I decree thee anti-Israel zealots as Dipsticks Extraordinaire, and the editors of this here blog as the Real Obstacle to Peace in the Middle East. My self-declared Kingship of Huffington Post furthermore allows me to suggest to Arianna that she stop kowtowing to a bunch of Arabian bigots and their ne'er do well Western idiots (nothing useful about them).
It's official. With this public comment, I now declare that Huffington Post is the capital of Poopholeville. Sift through for corn nuggets, underlings.”

“King BGosh. Has a nice ring to it. ;-) I came here as an "on the fence" Independent and I am now on the verge of becoming a "severe" conservative. The hate and intolerance for opinions other than those of Democrats/Liberals are so vilified it qualifies as verbal abuse. Rule in peace and let common sense reign.”
