“May your children die, you dogs”: As Gaza burns, Israelis bay for blood in streets of Tel Aviv
By Ali Abunimah


“They don’t deserve to live, they need to die”
“May your children die, you dogs”
“Now we want to go back there [to Gaza] and kick out all the Arabs.”
“The people demand more shooting”
“Muhammad is dead”
November 17, 2012 "Electronic Intifada"  - November 16, 2012 - These were some of the calls from a group of Israelis demonstrating in favor of Israel’s attack on Gaza in the streets of Tel Aviv last night.
Peaceful protests by Palestinian students at Israeli universities were met with similar incitement.
In Tel Aviv, across the road, another group of Israelis protested against the assault. “We came here to say that we must end this war immediately,” Knesset member Dov Khenin of the communist Hadash party told the anti-war crowd, “every additional drop of blood is needless.”
The duelling demonstrations were filmed by David Sheen. While anti-war voices exist, there’s little doubt that much of the Israeli Jewish population stands behind Israel’s attack on Gaza, believing the government propaganda that Palestinians are firing rockets at Israel unprovoked while Israel seeks peace and quiet.
Among the pro-violence demonstrators was Baruch Marzel a notorious settler fanatic who frequently incites violence. “The enemy must be expelled and destroyed,” Marzel said, specifiying that Palestinians should be kicked out of Gaza so Israelis could re-settle there.
“You’re cross-dressers! You’re the Gay Pride March, that’s what you are,” shouted another war supporter at the peace demo, a call that was echoed by others.
One man warned fellow protestors, “They’re filming us, don’t curse” but that did not stop the violent calls. “Go to Gaza with the Muslims, you sons of bitches,” said one. “The people demand more shooting,” responding to calls for a ceasefire from the pro-violence demonstration across the road.
The calls for blood and violence in the streets echo incitement by Israeli government leaders. In recent days Israel’s “minister of home front defense” Avi Dichter called for Israel to “reformat” Gaza – wipe it clean – like a computer hard drive, except using bombs.
Israeli transport minister Israel Katz called for Israel to bomb Gaza so hard that the population would flee into Egypt, and for Israel to cut off water and electricity supplies.

“Death to the Arabs”: Incitement at Israeli universities

Hundreds of Palestinian citizens of Israel, students at several universities, turned out to protest the Israeli attack on Gaza, despite a heavy police presence on and around campus, reported Arabs 48, a website providing news on Palestinians in Israel.
At Tel Aviv University, some 150 Palestinian students gathered despite a heavy security presence, Arabs 48 reported, and there right-wing students from the Zionist group Im Tirzu confronted them shouting racist slogans including “Death to the Arabs.”
Similar scenes took place at Hebrew University, where right-wing students were held back by security forces from attacking Palestinians calling for an end to the violence.

“the most terrible thing I’ve seen in my life”

At Haifa University, Palestinian students held a moment of silence for victims of the Israeli attacks in Gaza, and were quickly confronted by Israeli Jewish students, according to Arabs 48.
“What happened today at the Haifa University was the most terrible thing I’ve seen in my life,” tweeted Israeli Twitter user @kesterica who witnessed what happened at Haifa, “Arab students were silently protesting against the war. They invited the Jews to join them.”
“In response,” @kesterica tweeted, “dozens of Jewish students attacked the Arabs, called them traitors, spread rumors that they were mourning [Jabari], sang [the anthem religious songs encouraging war].”
On Wednesday morning, Israel carried out the extrajudicial execution of Ahmad al-Jabari, the top Hamas military leader in Gaza, breaking a truce, and reigniting violence that left 19 Palestinians, including at least 6 children and a pregnant woman, and three Israelis dead since Wednesday, by Friday morning.
“The Jews sang: ‘he’s dead, he’s dead, he’s dead.’ I don’t tend to cry fascism, fascism, but that’s what it was,” @kestericatweeted.
“An Arab girl who stood there told me that she was asked why she was standing there, and she said she was against war and against casualties [deaths] and invited people to join her. It didn’t happen,” added @kesterica.
“I cannot say what each of the protesters thought, but she and quite a few of the folks standing there said they were just against war. To tell you the truth, me too,” she tweeted.
Palestinian students sang the Palestinian anthem “Mawtini” in response to the taunts, as the video above shows.
Violent and racist sentiments have also been widespread among Israelis on Facebook and other social media.
During Israel’s 2008-2009 attack on Gaza, journalist Patrick Cockburn observed:
Israeli society was always introverted but these days it reminds me more than ever of the Unionists in Northern Ireland in the late 1960s or the Lebanese Christians in the 1970s. Like Israel, both were communities with a highly developed siege mentality which led them always to see themselves as victims even when they were killing other people. There were no regrets or even knowledge of what they inflicted on others and therefore any retaliation by the other side appeared as unprovoked aggression inspired by unreasoning hate.
Much the same appears to be true today.

CENSORSHIT Opinions Are Like A-Holes, Everyone's Got One !


                             EVERYONE'S GOT ONE


         Fascist Freedom Fightin Censorshit  

1.Political Correctness15 up3 down
Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a
delusional, illogical, Marxist (Politically Correctly called liberal) minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
The Politically Correct term for Politically Correct is sensitive.

Facts are Politically Incorrect, that is why we need Postmodern "thinking", that is lying elevated into a form of art.

Political Correctness has successfully outsourced censorship to private enterprises.
2.perma-offended2 up2 down
A person who is in a permanent state of being offended because of {politicalcorrectness.} No matter what others say or do, they will find a reason to pounce on them for use of a word they don't like. The other party finds they have to walk on eggshells around them.
The guy who used the word niggardly to describe someone who is miserly and he was asked to leave his job by pressure from the perma-offended.
3.Facebook correctness5 up1 down
the sacrificial act of not posting what you want to write on Facebook because it really will piss off somebody.
You wouldn't believe how often Trish resorts to Facebook correctness because of her strident political views.

Facebook political correctness politcally correct
4.intellectual50 up61 down
1.A person capable of writing grammatically correct phrases expressing the fashionable opinions of the day.
2.Self styled national conscience and natural leader.

3.Linguistic acrobat specialising in moral postures and verbal smoke and mirrors.
The Western intellectuals find themselves in a desperate situation. In order to justify their existence within the limits of the straitjacket of their own design (such as Political Correctness and Multiculturalism), they have to resort to insincerity, selective outrage, taking offence on the behalf of others, ignoring atrocities committed by privileged, oppressed people.

Censorship and intimidation is the wet dream of the intellectuals. It is the only acceptable safety net when balancing on a tightrope in world of ever changing sensibilities and linguistic prohibitions, producing a spectacle of moral indignation in competition for the attention of a fickle audience.

Fear of ridicule is the constant companion of the Politically Correctintellectual in his battle against facts and observations by the uneducated.
5.Politically Correct1091 up243 down
1. The laws of moral and ethical relativism; all systems of cultures and thought are equal in value, steming from a perceived guilt from white liberals who believe that the Western Civilization is the root of all evil to the exclusion of all else.

2. A powerful form of censorship.

abbr: PC
Political correctness has a basic flaw. If all views are equal, why do some who embrace this view feel the need to push this agenda as the "correct" one at the same time demonizing other views as "incorrect"?

6.fiberal12 up3 down
A fake liberal. A fiberal thinks they know what they are talking about but they just repeat the same shit the New York Times, CNN, or any other liberal media outlet tells them to. They tend to care more about politicalcorrectness than what liberalism is all about, which is exactly what it sounds like: liberty. they are really into censorship of any kind. They cannot explain complex concepts of politics and economics because they just don't know enough about it. 100% of them are dumb cunts. Although the word "fiberal" contains the word "fib", fiberals actually believe the shit they say.
fiberal: Communism isn't a form of national socialism! Social darwism isn't darwism! Censorship is wrong, unless it's of something that's mean and evil, like the Bible! Natural selection doesn't exist, because nature would never be that mean to poor little animals! Welfare is constitutional and isn't unfair in any way!

regular person: What a retard...
7.Nanny State227 up78 down
Intrusive government policies in Europe and recently the United States, designed to legislate morality and social behavior, assuming the state knows best what constitutes such, in the goal of essentially protecting people from the obvious consequences of their own stupid and destructive behaviors. Therefore, the central government believes it has the comprehensive and moral duty to protect the citizenry from itself. A derogatory term used in reference to intrusive political policies where the government has an excessive desire to govern and control society in the name of “protection.” When the central government of countries goes from being a governing body to a regulatory power and social caretaker, that engages in social protectionism and economic intervensionism, to control you from the womb to the tomb and instituionalizes them as common practice.

Opponents of such policies use the term in their advocacy against what they consider as uninvited and damaging state meddling in social affairs. The nanny state burdens people with high taxes and numerous government regulations to totally control our lives and make us more dependant on government, in its quest for more power. In practice, it assumes the citizenry is stupid and that intrusive legislation is mandatory to protect people from themselves.

The term can refer to:
1. public health interventions such as disease surveillance, quarantines, mandatory or government-subsidized vaccinations, food labeling regulation...
