Legitimate criticism of Israel is not anti-Semitic.

Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions is anti-Semitic.

Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor is anti-Semitic.

Applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation is anti-Semitic.

Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis is anti-Semitic.

"Applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation is anti-Semitic."

If we give Israel massive economic and military aid and give it favourable trade deals, we expect Israel to use that aid to advance itself appropriately as a democracy. We can't have the same expectation of a country we don't help. We can have hope, that's all. No double standard. I give my child pocket money but not my neigbour's child. I don't expect my child to use it to buy peashooters and catapults for harassing the other kids. I hope my neighbour's child will also refrain from misusing HIS pocket money that way, but, as it wasn't me who gave it to him, I can't have the same expectation. No double standard. The EU consists of 28 countries all of which are signed up to democracy and human rights, among other things. We expect every country in the EU to fully live up to that, in return for favourable trade deals, better security and the free movement of citizens. It would be very nice if, for example, Turkey lived up to the same ideals, but it doesn't. We can hope for that but we can't have the same expectations as we have for EU countries. No double standard. I'm afraid that your definition is designed to obstruct criticism of Israel. Not Jews, by the way, Israel. More specifically, the Israeli regime.

"Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis is anti-Semitic."

Not if the comparisons are valid. My view is that it is not constructive to do so under any circumstances because there can't be a good outcome for criticism levelled in that way, no matter how well-justified. But any country has the potential to act in ways we observed during the Nazi regime. If they do, we have to be free to express our criticisms in the most full-blooded way. Otherwise, again, your definition is intended to protect Israel from criticism, no matter how outrageous the behaviour. When the Taliban or the Burmese generals or Mugabe act like Nazis, we say so, though we always have to justify the comparison by saying what actions they carry out thatbare the same as Nazi actions. Myself, I think it's always best just to describe the actions as plainly as possible. That usually ups the ante quite enough as it is with Israeli regime apologists without rattling on about Nazis.

Cite anything anybody has made that isn't legitimate and I'' cite you all the times you have shrieked Jew-hater all the times somebody has made any criticism of Israel
My offer of a generous donation to any named charity or anything I have said that in any wayy critcises the Jewish peoplke - that fact that you have never taken that offer up proves that you have never been able to come up with anything which acctually confirms it is you, not anybody else who is antisemitic.
Implicating the Jewish People in the crimes of Israel is not only antisemitic, but it is almost the direct cause of antisemitism in the world today - it paints targets on every Jew on the planet.
You have no interest in the Jewish people - if you had you would have condemned your friend Keith when he claimed that the Jewish members in Parliament refused to specify the crimes Labour was accused of because they put the interests of the Party before those of the Jewish People, making you not only an appeaser of antisemitism, but a hypocrite in pretending to have the interests of the Jewish People at heart

Well let's see. Plenty of horrible people in recent history have not been Nazis but have acted like Nazis. Idi Amin's regime acted like Nazis and Papa Doc's regime acted like Nazis. In saying that, I am not saying the the Ugandans acted like Nazis or that the Haitians acted like Nazis. I think that massacring hundreds of civilians in refugee camps is a terrible war crime. I think that leaving hundreds of thousands of unexploded cluster bomblets scattered over fields in someone else's country is a terrible war crime. I've heard people say that the Israeli regime (not "Israel" or "Jews") acted like Nazis when they did those things. They would not be my words. There has never been an Amin or a Pol Pot in charge in Israel, let alone a Hitler. The Jewish people suffered terribly at the hands of the real Nazis and it serves no purpose to make the comparison in that manner. If we are to learn anything from history, we must be able to identify and condemn terrible war crimes against civilians. To me, along with those massacres and the bombing of Lebanon, the bombing of Dresden is in that category, and, worst of all, so are the nuclear attacks in Japan. You are not immune from this sort of criticism just because you are an Israeli leader. The argument may well be whether you think that the examples I've given are war crimes at all. You can argue that very clearly without bringing the ethnicity of the perpetrators into it. Churchill was a white Christian when he ordered the bombing of Dresden. If I were sitting here now arguing with you whether that was a war crime, neither of us would bring that up. Yet if I condemn the cluster bombs it's a case of "Ahah, you're only saying that because it was Israel, so you may be an antisemite!" Now that's what I call a double standard. And don't tell me that you won't say it. We routinely can't criticise those actions on this forum without being called antisemitic.

"The definition does not have that qualification because such a claim could never be valid."

Why not? Are you saying that Israeli leaders are imbued with some kind of special saintliness that prevents them from ever turning into an Amin or a Pol Pot?

But Nazis? Wrong word. Say plainly what you think the Israeli regime does wrong, the same way as you criticise the wrongdoings of everyone else.

Round and round and round we go, Teribus. Why would we expect to believe a word of what you say about Ireland or WWI when you indulge in such blatant revisionism apropos of those two massacres? And I'm really not going into that with you all over again.

Amazingly simple comfort food recipe tonight, thanks to Nigella (Christ, I LOVE that woman!). I've put my own twist on it. You need a bag of orzo pasta for this. It looks like rice but it's pasta. Even Morrisons sell it (sorry, Dave!)

This will do for two people.

Get a heavy-based pan and put a tablespoon of EV olive oil in it. Slice two garlic cloves into it. Cut up 150g sliced pancetta (or pancetta cubes) and throw it in. Sauté gently until the bacon goes a bit crispy. Don't burn the garlic. I will not consume brown garlic.

Throw 200g frozen BirdsEye peas into the pan. Turn up the heat a bit and stir for two minutes, add salt (easy, tiger) and pepper. Throw in 250g of orzo and stir like mad for a minute.

Add 625 ml boiling water. Keep the kettle hot as you may need a drop more later if the mix gets too thick. Stir like mad then simmer gently for ten minutes. You have to stir it a couple more times to stop the pasta from sticking.

When the orzo is al dente, stir in a big knob of butter (preferably unsalted) and a big handful of freshly-grated parmesan. Check the seasoning and add a bit more boiling water if it's too thick.

This is so easy and it's just brilliant. It's like a risotto, but it's quite different in character and it's a damn sight easier (though I do have a cheat's risotto recipe that cuts out all that ladling and stirring). A brilliant Friday night job when you can't be arsed to get complicated. You see, the difference between Teribus and me is that I adore good food and love to keep it simple. I'm a joyous and light-hearted sort of chap, as you all can see, while he's humourless and bitter. Though I love the fact that he refers to me as "pollack." I am guessing that he's an inveterate pie man who cares not a jot about what pastry is used. No wonder he's miserable.

Mind you, what's so wrong with pies....

The Iaraelis facilitated the massacre of up to 3,500 unarmed civilians at the refugees in Sabra Shatila in September, 1982
Without their collusion, the killings could not have happened
They collected the killers from the airpor, armed them, tranported them to the camp, allowed access onto the site, provided illumination so the killing could go on uninterrupted, turned back the refugees attempting to escape, provided equipment to bury the bodies, prvided the killers with a meas of escape and eventually built a stadium over the site where most of the bodies were buried so the actual numbers would never be known
THese are verified facts
Next
"Did the use of cluster bombs have anything whatsoever to do with a legitimate and proportionate response to an attack on the sovereign state of Israel by a terrorist organisation based in a neighboring country?"
Did the attacks by a poorly armed ill trained third world force have anything to do with the attempts of the Isrieli regime have anything to do with attempts of a country with a well trained well armed nuclear facilitated army to drive a people who had occupied their land for many centuries out of their rightful homeland
Were the responses proportionate - go count the dead, go work out how many of those dead were non-combatants - including women and children
"When Israel is attacked, which it has been constantly, since its inception in 1948"
The State of Israel was born to the sound of Israeli grenades being tossed into occupied houses to make room for the new settlers
Is your response a defence of mass murder and war crimes
Yes it most certainly is.
And the music goes round and round......
"What would your words be you complete and utter SPRAT."
As does your infantile behaviour towards those whi=o disagree with you
Do you really have such little confidence in your case that you feel you have to bully and bluster and bully it through?

"Liar. If you are not lying quote me, liar."
I have done Keith, twice, and you repeated the accusation
I can't be arsed repeating something everybody knows to be true.
"According to the definition used by democratic countries including this one, it is."
Accordint the that definition, it is antisemitic to implicate the Jewish people in the actions of teh State of Israel
By calling those whho criticise Israel antisemitic, that;'s what you do, that's what Bobad does and that's what the Israeli regime does
The Israeli justice minister has even said punlicly that it it antsemitic to criticise Israeli policy
By doing so she made the definition null and cvoid.
The only workable definition of antisemitism is denigration of the Jewish people - nobody on this forum has ever done that other than you Keith by claiming that Jewish Parliamentarians have put the interest of their party above that of the Jewish People.
Bobad remains an appeaser as he refuses to condemn your antisemitism and he is shows where his loyalties really lie as he refuses to condemn the British government for selling arms to despotic states - including Muslim ones.

You will be unable to do that Shaw because none did. On the subject of refugee camp massacres do you believe the "Palestinian" stories about Jenin?

You did after all say that the Israelis were guilty of war crimes because THEY massacred people in refugee camps didn't you pollack.

But to answer your question - "Why would we expect to believe a word of what you say about Ireland or WWI when you indulge in such blatant revisionism apropos of those two massacres? - Possibly because those two massacres (That were not carried out by Israelis) have got S.F.A. to do with either Ireland or the First World War. You indulge in lies, half-truths, myths and misrepresentations - I don't.

The Camille Chamoun Sports City Stadium, Beirut - destroyed in 1982, rebuilt completely in 1997 and then redeveloped and rebuilt once more in 2015 - Guess what? Not one single body found anywhere. Got any reasonably logical explanation for that Carroll, considering that you believe thousands were buried under it?

Rather like saying "give me the name of the individual who commissioned the hit-man who was seen at the scene of the hit"
Meaningless evasive bullshit Teribus - the massacre was facilitated by Israel - it would not have been able to take place had they not done so.
Even if Israeli soldiers had not been present at the slaughter, they were guilty before and after the fact.
Israeli soldiers were reported on the site by eyewitness survivors and there is no question they manned the gates and turned fleeing refugees back into the hands of their killers and rapists.
"On the subject of refugee camp massacres do you believe the "Palestinian" stories about Jenin?"
More meaningless evasive bullshit - Sabra Shatila was fully verified and reported on by independent witnesses, tried by an independent commission and by the accused - the Independent one found Israel guilty, Israel found herself partially guilty
Israel took her guilt so seriously that they elected the man they to be responsible Prime Minister - that's how seriously!!
Imagine a Prime Minister of Britain who was known to have been responsible for the massacre of thousands of unarmed refugees (Thatcher came the nearest with her open support for Augusto Pinochet)
The only reason Israel was never tried for this and other war crimes (not really a war crime when non-combatants are the sole target) and human rights
Why should we believe a racist who denigrates entire ethnic minorities and entire national groups? (another one will be along in a minute)
You don't have to "believe" anybody - this is documented history of which you have been given so much evidence that you have complained of the amount.
Sabra Shatila is documented history - You have produced nothing other than denials and the type of bullshit you are producing here

No decent democratic country holds Israel responsible. Only nasty regimes with real blood on their own hands, and people like you.

Can we just establish what this thread now is
It is an attempt by two extremists who have humiliated themselves over and over again over subjects they appear to know little about but have felt it necessary to defend the honour of Imperial Britain, The ethnic cleansing Israeli regime and their own racist bigotry bigotry
W.W.1. - Ireland - Sabra Shatila - Travellers..... all done and dusted, all settled, and all fully exposed as atrocity denying, Imperial brutality and the persecution of ethnic minorities
This has become an excercise in face saving by a couple of very, very sore losers (to use their own phrase)
They got their Imperial arses kicked then and they have only succeeded in humiliating themselves further by expanding their stupidity, ignorance and blind bigotry in more detail
Who'd have ever thought that denial of a common ant-Traveller sign could turn into a "Slave owning, Human Trafficking ethnic minority" - you couldn't have asked for a more perfect conclusion to a long, distasteful saga of extremist strutting!
"You can't because it is just the rantings of a liar with nothing real to say."
This from someone who surrounded himself with an army of phantom witnesses and has consistently refused to quote their evidence
And I'm the one off my meds !!!
Have a nice day Keith - d'y'all hear now

Yes Jim we have been over this numerous times before. Each time your "eye-witnesses" have been proven to have been anything but.
"Guilty before and after the fact" you say. "They must have known" is your reasoning - then apply that same reasoning to the Connors family neighbours at those Traveller sites where the Conners were keeping their 22 slaves. What passes for reason in your mind flutters like a rag in the breeze picking up whatever wind suits best.

Now answer the question I asked. You clearly stated that the Israelis buried the bodies of those slain under the Camille Chamoun Stadium in Beirut. You obviously believe this to be the case. You have all the information regarding the Stadium, its history and details of its reconstruction and further modernisation (None of which was done by Israelis by the way) - Why have there been no bodies found?

For the benefit of anyone else reading this as Jim will simply ignore the inconvenient facts and questions I will tell you why there were no bodies found - there were no bodies buried there in the first place. Perhaps Jim can drum up a few "eye-witnesses" to say that there were, the FACT that in extensive rebuilding operations not a single body or evidence of human remains was unearthed will completely demolish any credibility in Jim's "eye-witness" testimony.

We are off to Morrisons later. Believe it or not we don't often go to the store as we do online more and more nowadays. I may well buy some orzo and try that recipe - Thanks Steve. Would it go with your favourite Morrisons wine of the moment do you reckon or would it be better with a white?

Nothing fresh, just allusions to things thaat might have been if things had turned out patter for you
You answer nothing that has been put up other than with unsubstantiated deials and you offer nothing of your own and you want to rehash the fact that the bodies were buried in numeous sites and a sports stadium was built over some of them
Are you really that desperate to divert attention from the fact that Israel facilitated the massacre of up to three and a half thousand refugees
For the benefit of you Teribus - for you, this particular war os over.
You have not offered a single documented fact to counter the masses of evidence you have been presented with - not one.
That's what you do - pour out the bullshit and expect it to be taken on trust and doesn't your small-minder blustering name-calling "Jom" show clearly that you know that fact and think you can bluster it though by unimaginative, infantile name-calling

Likewise racist bigotry bigotry
Made up shit shit.

denial of a common ant-Traveller sign could turn into a "Slave owning, Human Trafficking ethnic minority"

We were right to deny that the signs were common. None of us who liver here have ever seen one. And it is true that Travellers are massively over-represented in convictions for slavery, as the Independent article made clear.

Not much of an answer, was it, Keith? We used to have a law that said you could cut someone's guts out in public as they were hanged. Instead of appealing to authority, why don't you use your brain? The wider version of "antisemitism" was drawn up by a body that was advised mostly by pro-Israel lobby groups and its aim was to protect the Israeli regime from criticism. That loss of focus is very injurious to Jewish people as it departs from the only workable definition, that antisemitism is attacking Jews because they are Jews. Nothing to do with countries or regimes. Easy to interpret, no need for angst over marginal is-it-isn't-it squabbles as we've seen with regard to the Labour Party. Two things are now going to happen. You are going to tell me how many countries have adopted it and you are going to keep rattling on and on. But I'm not discussing it with you any more because you are not going to use your brain. What fish do you like? Got any recipes?

Give me the statistics. I want to know the total number of CONVICTIONS (the word you used), the period of time they apply to, the nature of the offences, the number of convictions that apply to travellers and the criteria used by the authorities to define the convicts as travellers. Demonstrate this "massive over-representation" with numbers, please.

"the fact that the bodies were buried in numeous sites and a sports stadium was built over some of them." - Jim Carroll

But Jim, that is the point. There is only one stadium in the area, the Camille Chamoun Stadium:

Destroyed in 1982
Rebuilt by British and Lebanese Construction Engineers in 1997 long, long after the IDF had left Beirut.
Modernised and extensively updated in 2015.

And Guess what Jim? Not a single body found, or any trace of human remains - funny that if there are supposed to be 3,500 bodies buried there isn't it.

Tell us about all those nurses and doctors the IDF were supposed to have taken away and executed according to "your" eye-witnesses Jim? You know the ones, the ones that all turned up safe and well and all accounted for.

As previously stated all your eye-witnesses turn out, on examination, to be anything but.

"But Jom, that is the point. There is only one stadium in the area, the Camille Chamoun Stadium:But Jom, that is the point. There is only one stadium in the area, the Camille Chamoun Stadium"
For Christ's sake Teribus, we've been here ad nauseum - you got nowhere then and you'll get nowhere now.
The Stadium was one detail out of a massacre of up to 3,500 unarmed civilians
Try addressing the main picture instead of hiding behind incidentals - come out from behind your smoke-and mirrors act - you've used it to cover the facts far too often and you;'ve never been good at it.
Jom again - more confirmation of your evasive bullshitting - you don't really have to display your insecure lack of imagination; we are all too well aware of it without the bluster-barrier.

Sorry Jim, old son, it is you who have got nowhere. You stated that the Israelis buried the bodies of those they were supposed to have massacred under a sports stadium, only thing is no bodies have been found there even although extensive ground works have been performed there since 1982.

Yes the stadium is one detail that would appear to be central to this myth about a mass grave. A detail that can be proved to be false.

Your version of the "main picture" is so full of holes that it is no wonder that it does not even hold together even under cursory examination. Your facts are nothing of the sort, a story spun by the same dissemblers and liars that brought the world the "horror" story of the Massacre at Jenin - a story that proved to be a complete lie a complete crock of shit.

Now if we want to pursue this we could reopen the original thread where this was discussed? Or would that just expose all your so-called evidence for the tripe it is.

The disposal of the bodies is long settled and you have produces nothing to show otherwise.
You stay in your little evasinve corner - this is where I am
Catch up if you will, or don't - your choice

The Iaraelis facilitated the massacre of up to 3,500 unarmed civilians at the refugees in Sabra Shatila in September, 1982
Without their collusion, the killings could not have happened
They collected the killers from the airpor, armed them, tranported them to the camp, allowed access onto the site, provided illumination so the killing could go on uninterrupted, turned back the refugees attempting to escape, provided equipment to bury the bodies, provided the killers with a meas of escape and eventually built a stadium over the site where most of the bodies were buried so the actual numbers would never be known
These are verified facts

Now IIRC the IDF were under orders to withdraw from Beirut.
The Lebanese Militias and Lebanese Army was going to take over responsibility for "security" in Beirut.

Tell me Jim why would those militiamen and Lebanese troops need transporting from the airport? Where had they flown in from, their holidays?

3,500? That number has never been substantiated or verified - your best bet was that the IDF under the gaze of the UN and world's press somehow buried them "in secret" under a sports stadium that at the times was in ruins, but no bodies or the slightest trace of human remains found at this site.

I suggest you reopn the old threads on this and look at how hard you tried to disprove the facts of Sabra Shatila and came up with zilch, nothing, nowt, s.f.a........
Keith's contribution came the nearest to providing an argument when he said 'the Israelis said they didn't do it so it can't be true'
Now he stonewalls with 'the Israelis have never done anything wrong because the politicians have never condemned them (not supported them, just stayed silent)
