Louis Theroux: The Ultra Zionists

If you take your time and compare the language and the vocabulary used by the Zionists or the Neo-Nazis, you'll see there is no difference between them in justifying their actions. Communists, fascists or Islamic extremists use the same type of justifications as the groups mentioned above. They all see themselves as right and everyone else as being wrong. Regardless of the their politics or religion, the extremists are the same thing: people who want to harm others because of their perverted ways of justifying irrational thinking and actions.

Through the lens of Louis' journalism, both Jews and Palestinians appear to be the most fanatical and delusional people in the world. It's like the whole Middle Eastern region is caught in a time trap, they are so bogged down with questions of religion and morality that they cannot move on to creating an advanced efficient society. Civilization has been in this region longer than any other region on the Earth, and yet they still have the mindset predominant in ancient times.

What's behind this mindset? Is it narcissism and an antisocial disposition, a sense of entitlement, elitism and blindness? Is it imagined mandate from the heavens to be separate and a desire to eradicate or completely destroy anyone who is not like themselves? Whatever the reason is, one thing is clear - such people are the collective enemy of the rest of humanity because our social progress is stunted by their beliefs and actions.

    Zionism is a dangerous ideology like extremist Islam that Tim Osman (bin laden) follows. The Israeli atrocities outweigh the Palestinian atrocities by far, in the entire history of Israel the Jews only ruled it for a mere 80 years thousands of years ago. I express solidarity with all indigenous people who are oppressed especially by disrespectful inconsiderate and racist settlers.

  • John (quite sane)

    The land belongs to God and He promised (as yet unfulfilled) the land to Abraham and his seed.

    Palestine never has and never will belong to the so-called Palestinians.

    As history/prophesy unfolds, anti-Semitism is reaching a fever pitch. Israel is about to stand alone and friendless, surrounded by hostile Muslim nations who openly vow to wipe her off the face of the earth. Even the U.S.A. under the crypto-Muslim, Obama will be forsaking her.

    Praise God, He will not forsake her as the world will soon witness.

  • Mad

    I hope they do wipe these scumbag liars off the face of the earth! These people make me sicker than Hitler and his Nazis. Ive seen all the videos on the holocaust it was terrible, I know about American segregation and apartheid in south Africa but this is just deeply depressing. "God" doesn't even exist and if he did the way religion explains him, he is full of contempt for the children of Israel, and will punish those responsible for the murder of innocents of course the Jewish settlers. If not when generation X takes control of the USA we will help destroy those which our ancestors helped create. Just as we did with slavery.

  • Mad

    Somebody should arm the Palestinians so they can at least protect themselves from these faggots

    AND THERE'S NOTHING, NOTHING THAT YOU OR THE WORLD CAN DO ABOUT IT NOTHING.... I think that statement sums it up best. Great doc vlatko.

    If I'm black, and I buy a home in a white neighborhood, no one objects. If I'm a Jew, and I buy a home in an Arab neighborhood there are rock-throwing riots? What a load of horse dung. We're all people.

    good doc,
    There is something very wrong with this picture...

    I found it very one-sided in favor of the Israeli. I can only imagine what life must be like on the other side of the fence, away from the suburbia they have created.

    Although I got to hand it to those Palestinians, They have perfected the art of stone-throwing :-)

  • Mr. Kooky Kat

    @John(quite sane) Don't forget Isreal has a ton of nukes in the ground,.. and hey, wait a minute was Isreal supposed to have them in the first place? Was Isreal given the world's blessing to have these sinister weapons of mass destruction,.. hmmmmmm,. I don't think so. Isreal just suddenly had them and complaints from the rest of the Arab world were simply ignored.

    With the exception of Pakistan and India no one else has these weapons within the middle east region, so I guess Isreal has the hgh ground after-all, at least until the day comes when Isreal lights up some of these big sticks.

    the Palestinians have been push around by everyone , jews , british, and yet none of the neighbouring arab countries wants to help. they are a people at a wrong place at a wrong time. the only place they can go are the poles.sad . their palestinian leaders are weak n doesnt care so the people suffer.so who wants to fight the war for them?

    its never a dull day in israel, what a funny doc.

    Of course Israelis feel the need for soldiers everywhere, they are surrounded by people that hate them, not for the Palestine issue, but for just being Jewish.

    Brilliant doc!
    Israelis working by force, stealth and deceit, having virtually unlimited funding, USA backing. Sure they will fulfill their prophecy. BTW, what their prophets say about what comes next? You know, the "eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" stuff. Or do they think the universal laws of justice do not apply to them?

  • francois

    "The body national" at work again!

    One nation, one people, one god and the expansion of the state.

    «You shall never die, you will always lived in Israel»

    Is there somebody in this brain ridden country that realized that they are using the same rhetoric as their most infamous executioner.!!!

    Well, as Bug's Bunny use to say : If you can't beat em, join em!!!

    I'm sorry, but past suffering doesn't give them the right to transfer it on to others.

    If my mother beated the sh*t out of me when i was young, it doesn't give me the right to beat the sh*t out of other woman.

    An argument like that would be laugh at by any reason minded person!

    So why is it accepted in the case of these racist, emotionally manipulative, empire strategist
    who have the shameless arrogance of using the SAME ignominy as their past aggressor.

    Naaaaaah!, It just doesn't work

    So sad!!

  • francois

    I am going to write something horrible, but i think i must do it.

    I think that these right-wing religious wako's have a kind of Nazi fetishism.

    Painting cross of David on newly seized Arab neighborhood is like an inverted
    Kristallnacht.

    They are using symbolism of their own history in a very perverted way.

    If i was a jew i would be profoundly outrage by this inverted Holocaust fetishism.

    It is cynical to the point of vomiting.

    Is that what we call Jewish humor?

    I have watched most of louis theroux's documentaries and although his style of journalism is at times deliberately naive and patronisingly annoying, I do find him amusing and insightful occasionally. Unfortunately this was not one of those occasions. The documentary lacked substance and direction. I was hoping there would be little more depth but like a few people before me have stated the whole documentary can be summarised by the following statement, 'AND THERE’S NOTHING, NOTHING THAT YOU OR THE WORLD CAN DO ABOUT IT NOTHING'.

    most of the comments seem to not realize that both sides that were interviewed are extremists. these jews and arabs are a very small percentage of the actual population. this war is between extremists. most people in israel want peace.

  • Jesus

    Ordered minds by ordered books and people make a disorderly society. If the legitimacy of the bible was thrown out, which it has been by most reasonable people, they would not have a rock to stand on, for they would have all been stoned to death. In the end, for every story has an end, they are following a fantasy and ruining the world in the mist of their hazy point of view. If there is a second holocaust for people who label themselves jews they would have no excuses for the punishments that befall them. Already their sins have surpassed those of all their oppressors in Jewish history since they have been through it all, they really think so, they should be the first to stop the madness. Instead it only perpetuates and manifests itself in the form of their devilish activity and the silence about it only broken by rocks and gunfire. Hurry up Jews and go back to heaven already.

  • Bo

    Jews only have "absolute morality", they have no mutual morality. Just because you suffered doesn't give you any special right to impose so much suffering on the Palestinians.

    The Jews will suffer even more bad karma for generations to come if they do not correct their actions. They are so arrogant in the Middle East, so whitewashed, and ethnocentric. They have no compassion!

  • entropy

    The jews are making the same mistakes that led to the Holocaust.

  • Henry

    The Jews have earned all the hatred they receive. I was not born with hatred for Jews and my family never even really mentioned anything about them, but as time went on and I met a couple of Jewish people I started to notice that these people have the most twisted and scary believes than anyone I have met.

    I have worked for a Jewish company which I am currently taking to court for employment discrimination. And I also lived in a apartment building in NYC (where I lived 21 years) was sold to a Jewish landlord. Shortly after, I was ILLEGALLY evicted from my apartment because it was the largest apartment in the building and the Jewish landlord wanted it for his immigrant family who now lives there. The same was done to many people there who had rent-controlled apartment.

    If anyone is wondering how they managed to do this and get away with it, I will tell you this: like most cases in the US, before you even walk in to court your case has already been won or lost depending on who you know, how much money you can spare and how many lawyers you have.

  • Ricko

    Louis is extraordinary, I never miss any of his documentaries, he always has a neutral non threatening way of approaching provocative questions to his interviewees to get the truth behind their actions and ideology.

    I believe there is plenty of blame to put on both sides and when ever I hear (from either side) "it is god's will" I just cringe and can not believe how religion is shamelessly exploited to such a degree.

    Personally, I believe anyone who does any action because he believes/says "god told me to" should be put in a mental institution. You can believe in god all you want, but what complete arrogance and vein pride to say/believe you know his wishes.

  • francois

    Peoples, peoples,

    Please!!! Let's not get anti-semitic here. O.K.
    First of all, not all Jews are zionist racist nationalist pig!
    Segundo, Let's not forget that there is a large majority of Israelite who are for a two states solution and for the respect of the Palestinians History and freedom.
    And Third, today's nationalist and crypto-fascist Jews from America (Neo-Con), from France, Britain and from Israel (right-wing settlers) have nothing to do with the secular integrated jews of europe and the peasant craftsmen Thora serving Jews that were massacre in the pogroms and in the Nazi holocaust.
    They are in reaction to what happen then. And they are using the suffering of their ancestor to create fear, raving nationalism and islamophobia around the world.
    But their is a vast majority of secular and religious Jews who have nothing to do with fascism. And when THEY will start talking and taking their responsibility , Only then will this situation start to change. But sadly enough, their is still a law of silence being observe by that majority. It's the BODY NATIONAL. And just like in every fascistic situation , NO opposition is allowed. Not even, and especially, among themselves.

  • riley

    israel is in the process of losing their great arab 'partner', which had been bought off at the expense of billions of u.s. dollars per annum, and civil rights for egyptians at large.

    maybe this will induce a little reflection on the precariousness of their situation internationally by thoughtful jews, and with it a more widespread desire to make peace internally.

    what some australian carpetbagging instigator has to say shouldn't really be the driver of the israeli dialogue on their national destiny.

    Ha! I hear ya, but this doc is informative and Louis cracks me up. His docs are usually a good watch with some laughs. But as we know from the past , they will come.

    Its ok , though , Im feeling a bit fiesty.

    Watching this reminded me of another group of people that has had to rebel and face a foregin foe. W ho were they? Ahh yes, tis the Irish.I speak of. Another land plundered by religion.

    No intervention from angles above? Not even for his chosen or for his son? Tough love , I guess.

  • Angry Ape

    People really need to understand the reality of Zionism. The extremist views of these people eclipses anything imagined by the religious fundamentalists of Christianity or Islam. For at the backbone of their zealotry is a political madness that again makes our neo-cons look like infants.

    The world must wake up to these people. These frauds do not represent true followers of Judaism. Zionism is a geopolitical move and nothing more. Peace will come only with the Zionist removal from the area. Only then can Jews and Muslims live together in peace.

  • 7andrew7

    First, I do not approve of the displacement of groups based on race, religion or ethnicity. That being said, how a can a BRITISH athiest have anything positive to add to a discussion on a subject that involves the "colonization" of a land and people based on religious doctrine? This is a country whose randomly selected borders have caused ethnic conflicts the world over for 100 years. This is a country whose pilgrims destroyed an entire continent wide civilization of American peoples, and then claimed that they did it all in the name of religious freedom. And he is an ATHEIST. His perspective on BOTH of these religions is to belittle/pity the simple mindedness of these poor, naive folk who still crutch themselves upon a higher power.
    My favorite part of this video is when the settler in the tent tells Theroux that his viewpoint is just plain stupid. this whole documentary is another case of an ego/cultural-centric British hypocrite believing in the face of his own proclaimed non belief that his opinion should somehow be adopted by the natives so that they could see the shining truth of the sun that never sets. What about the Irish republic? Vlatko, are there any documentaries on the site pertaining to the brutal oppression and occupation of the Irish?

  • JT White

    Oh God, i thought only muslims are extremist:(

  • Mark

    None of this will stop unless there is some form of balance between Palestinians and Israelis. The ONLY way balance can be achieved is if the US stops supporting Israel in the UN and by ending the funding of the state of Israel.

    But, none of that is ever going to happen.
    Why?
    Because Palestine is non-profitable in the sense that they have no oil revenues or other natural resources that might help them get some attention on the world markets.
    They have nothing to offer except stereotyped outcries of despair and violent retaliation. It's doesn't have any real profit value.

    My guess is that the next big move will be the taking down of the Al-Aqsa mosque and the re-building of the third temple of Salomon.

    Yes, Salomon's temple...‘AND THERE’S NOTHING, NOTHING THAT YOU OR THE WORLD CAN DO ABOUT IT’

  • David

    How dare anyone on this board bring up the Holocaust... We've been through more than just the Holocaust.. Pogroms, burnings, etc. We want a place for peace. Come on. Visit Jerusalem and then comment on this! If you havent been there, shut the hell up!

  • Nick Sporek

    The moral of the story.

    Jews are willing to coexist and the Muslim Arabs are not. Muslims aren't called the "religion of peace" for nothing.

    It's too bad that the documentary didn't show Arab Muslims shopping in Israeli/Jewish grocery stores and markets, eating in Israeli/Jewish restaurants, working at Jewish Israeli businesses, swimming in Israeli/Jewish pools, riding in Jewish/Israeli buses (even after all the suicide bombing) , playing in Israeli/Jewish parks even right at the foot hill of the Israeli Kneset (Parliament) with out any threat or provocation what so ever from Israeli/ Jews.

    I wonder how those so called ''poor''' palestinians got so big and how come some of them had such good English? It would be nice to see a documentary showing the world palestinian wealth for a change.

    Although I think this documentary was more or less fair, it was still typical of the BBC to be very one sided (a one sided position is propaganda by definition). I doubt they will ever show happy, educated and prosperous palestinians because that would shake up the world too much and some countries might have to pay more for their oil and look for other sources for daily news.

    Don't take my word for it though, go and see for yourself.

    The problem isn't some religious kid living in a tent on an empty hill. If you think that, you're brainwashed.

    If Muslim/Arabs legally sold their homes to Jews why can't the rest of the Muslims live with their new Jewish neighbours side by side? Why wasn't that question put to them?

    How come the reporter didn't ask the fathers of those kids, why were they out so late, why did they allow them to throw rocks at people, why did the dad have to send elementary aged kids to do his dirty work?

    Israel completely pulled out of the Gaza strip in 2005 and it only brought more violent attacks by the Hamas. So why should Israel even entertain the idea of giving up the West Bank.

    If palestine becomes an autonomous state does anyone think the palestinians will allow Jews to live there or anyone else for that matter? Isn't that worse than an apartheid state. It's ethnic cleansing and genocide after all. Why would any rational person advocate the creation of such a state?

    Jews around the world were happy where they were living until anti-Semitism finally turned them into Zionists. Zionism has nothing to do with religion. In fact the religious Jewish communities were originally against Zionism and some still are. Israel is a refugee camp of a country for the Jewish people surrounded like a giant ghetto by hostile neighbours. But unlike most oppressed cultures, Jews don't make excuses to be apathetic and always try to improve their situation. With national defence at the top of the Israeli governments budget, Israel continues to improve itself right across the board. That seems to make some people extremely jealous. Too bad :^P

    This documentary stated that Israel had one of the worlds most powerful armies. If the Zionist is the aggressor and instigator of the conflict as many people think they are. Why wouldn't they just wipe out their enemies and be done with it? After all the Jews own the media and the banks and could cover it up, right? The answer is because Jews value human life above all. Even the lives of their enemies. Human life even take priority over faith for the most Orthodox of Jews. You can't compare an extremist Jew to a Muslim extremist, not even close. Nobody blinked an eye when Sri Lanka killed off the Tamil Tigers, why?

    I don't advocate all of the behaviours of the IDF, the Israeli government or the so called Zionist settlers but they all get more than their share of time under the international microscope.

  • Hitler's Grandson

    I wish Grandpa would have finished the job he started. Oh well, maybe Iran or one of the other countries over there will do it for him.

    I used to hate Muslims worse than anything, but after watching this video, they just stepped up one ladder rung over jews. And baby rapers are on a rung above the muslims.

    Those jews are sure a cocky bunch of people aren't they? They either completely refuse to answer a question they don't like, or they make excuses for what they are doing because they are the "chosen" ones, and are just a little bit better than all the rest of us.

  • Nick Sporek

    Oh, one more thing.

    Some people may accuse me of being a racist for what I wrote above. I know that because in my life I've come across many people that don't know what the word actually means and those people like to lurk in these types of forums.

    I only believe there is a human race and that's it.

    I am a Canadian/Israeli Jew and I would even mary a palestinian/Arab woman if she would renounce Islam. (notice I didn't save convert to Judaism, just renounce Islam).

    Shalom

  • Waldo

    The globe is like a big play ground that self segregated, and the Jews and Palestinians both want the sand box. Its shameful to take either side really, I wish the US would cut all ties with both nations and become secular and energy independant. Think about it, if we were both we would have absolutley zero interest in the Middle East. There is nothing there but religion and oil, which happen to be the two most potent poisons ever unleashed on the earth. Instead the US has become the bully on the play ground, stealing everyones lunch money while dealing out wedgies in return. The world is in desperate need of adult supervision.

    We all spend too much time looking outward toward percieved injustice and opression, saying "no" and letting that stand alone as our one creative act. Man should spend his time looking inward searching for self affirmation, the root of all nobility. The proclamation of his morality should not be reaction to an outside sphere of influence, but a proactive measure seeking its opposite only to prove by outcome of civilized debate its own worth. If he must look outward for any other reason let him do so at the empirical universe, and ask why through objective repeatable research.

  • Brendan

    Can we please get something straight? These are Israelis, not just Jews. There are many Jews in the world who do not live in Israel, do not agree with their policies or actions and should not be guilty by religious or supposed ethnic association. In fact, many Jews who speak out against the actions of Israel, are accused of being anti-semitic, self hating Jews. From now on, can we at least be accurate? "The Israelis are f@#$%^& crazy" is a good example.

  • RBNZ

    I have been to Israel and Palestine - twice. I've talked to ordinary people on both sides of the conflict and to religious extremists.

    The main problem is that the minority who believe "god" gave "Israel" to Abraham are supported by the majority.

    As far back as the 1850's european jews were moving to palestine with the specific intention of creating a "jews only" state to bring about the end of days. Many Jews who were already living in palestine thought this was a terrible idea and wrote about it saying it would bring about endless conflict.

    The zionists were financially backed by the Rothschilds in europe to buy up land. Employment to non-jews by jews was not allowed. Unemployed arabs were bought out and dispossessed.

    One palestinian i talked to - who has lived in a syrian refugee camp all his life - told me "who said the UN has the right to give my house to a foreigner?".

    Basically their argument is that they were militarily occupied by the british, who by the way were indebted to the rothschilds.

    This isn't a religious war it's an economic war. The rothschilds wanted a strategically located state of their own - and now they have one. They've got everyone by the balls and they're crushing them.

    The Rothschilds have a separate state withing a state in Israel. It's called "Caesarea" - google it.

    The only solution to this problem is a mass opt-out of the system which feeds on conflict and debt - which is easier said than done...

    The Palestinians, in my view, are the victims and everyone around the world should support them if they value their own rights.

    There will be no peace if the Jews are irrational and base their rights on something they read in an ancient book somewhere with no way of knowing it is true.

  • RBNZ

    1 more thing....

    Look up the meaning of "semite" if you are anti-semetic then you are against arabs as well.

    Be honest and say you are anti-jew or even better anti-religion.

  • Brendan

    @ Nick Spark

    Your mentality is a big part of the reason for why the world opinion is turning against Israel. There is no argument to be had here. First of all, Israel was a state that didn't exist prior to 1948 and prior to that date, was populated mostly with Arab Palestinians. In 1948, with the help of England and the U.S, a state was established, mostly out of sympathy for the Jews after the Holocaust, but also in order to remove much of the European Jewish population from Europe, as there was rampant anti-semitism and sending Jews to the middle east was win win for most of the players involved. After the state of Israel was established, it was officially recognized by Britain and the U.S which effectively gave it status as a legal state. During this time, hundreds of thousands of Jews poured into Israel and began to displace local Palestinians. Over time the number of Jews increased and Palestinians lost much of their land within the state of Israel.

    Then came the 6 days war in 1967, where Israel took control of East Jerusalem and the West Bank. Now legally, after annexing land, according to international law, the conquering country must not build permanent settlements on said land. Israel has ignored this law and done so anyway, and continued their expansion into the West Bank and East Jerusalem to this day. The way they do this is by purchasing property from impoverished Palestinians who have been the victims of a war of attrition and basically have no other choice.

    That is the important history in a nutshell. Now add in billions of dollars in military and economic aid from the United States, Britain(at one time) and various lobby groups and international Jewish and Christian charities. Let's not forget that Palestinians receive nominal aid from Turkey, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon(and I can only assume Iran). How is any of this fair or just? If the U.S attacked Canada tomorrow on the basis that it was their religious homeland and thus, their god given right, you'd lose your mind, and rightfully so. But because you're Jewish and have been taught a bias from a young age,(if you're anything like my reformed Jewish girlfriend) it's ok to see that the Israelis and the oppressed victims of history and they are surrounded by enemies they didn't create themselves.

    Also, I hope you realize "I would even mary a palestinian/Arab woman if she would renounce Islam. (notice I didn’t save convert to Judaism, just renounce Islam)." is not what I would call evidence of an open mind or lack of prejudice. To the average person, this is discriminatory, small minded, and just plain arrogant.

    Good day to you sir.

  • Brendan

    @RBNZ Let's not split hairs, the definition of anti-semitism you're talking about, hasn't been used in a very long time. The accepted definition of anti-semitism is the hatred of Jews. We don't go around referring to happy people as gay anymore either, this is how language works.

  • Supreme

    QUICK REVIEW: **4 out of 5**

    This is a important documentary as it balances the major media focus of radical Islamic with zionists on the other side. This goes to show how war in the name of religion makes everyone especially crazy.

    Some highlights include on the ground interviews from Israeli military and Palestinians during protest conflicts at boarders.

    There is some strong hitting statement made at the end of the doc where it sums up the zionist perspective in 1 line. Watch it.

  • John

    When will people actually learn the definition of anti-Semitic and realise it encompasses more than just jews.

  • JM

    @Brendon

    "We don’t go around referring to happy people as gay anymore either, this is how language works."

    Yes but I don't think you'd find millions of happy people out there who will object to the fact that 'gay' doesn't get used in reference to them. However I think you'd find that the millions of Arabs out there would be unhappy with the fact that the term 'Semite' in 'anti-Semitism' does not refer to them. It erroneously makes it look like the Jews own the word.

  • Waldo

    @ RBNZ & JM

    I have been over this on this site before, oye. The word anti-semitic does not refer to Arabs as well as Jews. The word was coined in Germany and used specifically to express a hatred against Jews. It is generally accepted amongst linguistic scholars to mean anti-Jew only, even though technically it could refer to Ethiopians, Arabs, etc. Here is what wiki has to say on the subject: "While the term's etymology might suggest that antisemitism is directed against all Semitic peoples, the term was coined in the late 19th century in Germany as a more scientific-sounding term for Judenhass ("Jew-hatred"),[2] and that has been its normal use since then.[3]" So it is not a term used to express hate toward all peoples speaking the semitic language. It was a word coined by the Germans specifically to talk about Jew hatred, Arabs will have to get over it I suppose.

    The word semitic still refers to Arabs and Ethiopians just not anti-semitic, this would be something they should appreciate I would think. The word in its negative context is not associated with them. At one time there was a movement amongst linguistic scholars to redefine the term to apply to all semitic peoples, but this was rejected as it is an attempt to hide a part of history that we are not proud of. They decided to leave the word to mean what it was coined to mean in the first place, and let it be a reminder of the hatred man is capable of. Besides the Jews felt THEY had died in those camps, and the word was coined and used specifically against them. The word carries a history for them that it does not carry for other peoples.

    Think of how it would be a diservice to history to change the meaning of the word n*gger to mean Grudging and petty in giving or spending, which is an alternate technical definition of the word. This would be an attempt to hide what the word was really used for, to discriminate against blacks. I think we should let these words mean what they were coined to mean, if for no other reason than as a hideous reminder of mans predisposal toward prejudice.

    It's all BS. It has nothing to do with religion.

    Those zionists extremists (small middle class minority) are being 'used' and financed by those who want real-estate!

    What you see is actually class struggle and exploitation of the poor, the religiously motivated and the western centrist pseudo moral high ground (media).

    The religious zealots think that they are the chosen ones? That has never been the problem. Take the land, take the water, make them work for you for a pittance, treat those who do not want to work like dogs so they will go away. It has been done before all over the world by the British, the French, the Portuguese, the Spaniards, the Dutch and the Americans (manifest destiny remember?).

    Israel is no better no worse than all these 'former' oppressors of the poor indigenous peoples all over the world. Except that today you have Youtube, political spin and BBC reporting antagonist views.

    Blame the zealots of both camps if you want but make sure you do not go after the fat cats of the world that are funding this madness for profit. What do you say Louis? Follow the money? or keep going after people who do not really have a clue spewing rhetorical BS as a explanation or justification for maiming and killing human beings.

    @Waldo

    I'll reserve judgement on others' use of the term 'anti-Semitism', but it's not a term I'll use myself. As scientific-sounding as it might seem, it is still utterly inaccurate - so in fact totally UNscientific. I don't see why the lie should be perpetuated any longer, and I'd abandon the term and call a spade a spade, and call what it refers to as anti-Jewism.

    BTW as to your other point, the word you're thinking about is not n*gger, but niggard, a word which goes back to 14th century Middle English (as 'nyggard'), and has no etymological connection with the former term, which is a corruption of 'negro'. Understandably perhaps, due to their similar pronunciations, the use of word (in the adjectival form of 'niggardly') has caused some controversy in the US all the same.

  • Elizabeth

    Just horrible all the way around, and religion is about man and GOD and NOT the rule of anyone. NOBODY is more superior over another human being. If you believe that because either you are Jew or Arab and I feel sorry for all of you. I am Orthodox Christian I am no better then anyone else and neither is anyone on this planet.

    People have to get a life and yet, both Jews and Arab are cousin when it comes to religion and why they fight because all the politics of BS nonsense. Again, keep the people divided. Many average people do not care about who that person is and people are people. I feel sometimes, we are less then the animals all of us and yet look at how we treat animals. Of course because until we can respect animals and ourselves and then we can respect our fellow man.

    We are all part of the human race......Love, has no boundaries and good and bad in all of us..... Everyone get a life and stop all this fighting over nothing because I am sure if GOD came tomorrow he will find that we should be ashamed or ourselves. Remember, people are people, and as for all war it funded on both side of the coin and someone is always making money in the name of bloodshed, and money or whatever. Yes, innocent people died in the name of war.

    Even though this video is biased and made by an anti-Semitic left wing weakling, I thoroughly enjoyed it. To be able to see so many heroic Jewish pioneers bravely settling the land was truly a treat. However, it was heart-breaking to see the amount of scorn and abuse that IDF is subjected from the hands of fakestinian arabs and its own myopic and treacherous government. In any sane country, these fakestinian interlopers would be transferred out to other 66 muslim hell-holes. The bottom line is that regardless of what the anti-Semitic animals on this site or elsewhere are saying, the Jerusalem will remain undivided and Jewish forever, the lands of Judea and Samaria will remain Jewish and there is nothing nazi sympathizers, quaranimals or left wing loonies can do about it. Am Israel Chai!

  • Sammy

    its funny how the United States accuse people and countries of religious untolrance and how the muslim extreemist are the most dangrous threat that face the world today while the fact is America have been running an undeclared holy war on Muslim and Arabs for more than 3 decades and supporting one of the most facist and racist entity that exist today.

    they are really working to achieve there "Armageddon". sounds crazy, i know, but that what happened when u start scrutinize other people religion, they do the same to yours and they start found things that suit there so called " theories" i have no doubts that American shameful support for Israel is religious, its fundamental to its protestant beliefs there absolutely no other explanation, the Democracy crab excuse they use in the past to explain there defense of "NAZI ISRAEL" is no longer valid, what happened lately in Tunisia and Egypt proof that, they did not even care about the popular revolt that brought down the Bin Ali tyrant regime in Tunisia,

    it wasn't even in the media until weeks later, and in Egypt when millions of people went to the streets in a true popular uprising, the American reaction was - what about the security of Israel and the price of u know what i would not even mentioned it , and if there are true elections in Egypt the Muslim brotherhood are going to take over, hahaha what a lie this democracy crab is, now i wonder how many idiots in America and the rest of this world believe that over 5000 fine American Men and Women died to promote Democracy in the Middle east,

    America now is hoping that the Tyrent stay against the well of his people, and they support every corrupt tyrant in the region just because they make life easy for Israel,and ... cheap. i am so happy as an Arab that those tyrants days are over and soon we will have true democracy and finally can stand out to the Zionist, they have no chance, no way they have.

    also the term muslim jews is the main problem cause their all racist comment and their all racist. why dont they just make their country one just like long ago??

    till now for over 1000 years
    no other state ever existed there independetly
    the settlers in the west bank are a trifle minority
    and will leave if ever there is an agreement with the palestinians - which there is none becouse they refuse
    to aknowledge israels right to exist,

  • richaserd

    The land belongs to Palestine and the Palestinians- And any surviving descendent's of the Tribe of Judea. Period. The overwhelming majority of the current population of Israel have no more "claim of ownership" than do a roving band of Gypsies. They are and ALWAYS have been of European and Asian descent. They nor any of their ancestors have ever set foot in Israel and have NO right, legal or otherwise to waltz their mongrel butts into Palestine and viciously uproot a people whom have inhabited Israel (Palestine) for thousands of years.

    Look at most of these Zionists. Light-skinned, blond hair, blue eyes---not really what I'd consider exactly of Semitic origin. No. They are perennial outcasts that have roamed from country to country throughout time. For the first time in all of history, these particular people, the Jews, now have a place they can settle into. The problem is their incessant greed will not allow the primary people to share the land...AT ALL!! This is a crime against humanity. And where is the ever-protective world community? Why do they turn their collective "bought and paid for" heads while the Palestinians are scraped aside, like so much salt on the table?

    When all killing ends, the Palestinians get their stolen land back, those on both sides who have killed innocents pay for their crimes and when they can learn to respect each other then they may be able together.

    @Manch

    Nice website. What's with all the anti-blackism on there?

    here's a nice selection of the trash on your site...

    "G*d gave the Jews the World, so they should also be able to settle throughout the world and not limit to Israel."

    This is my feeling:
    All synagogues need to be fortified and well guarded. Synagogues should be equiped with mounted .50 caliber guns, as well as other caliber long range guns at various points. These stations should be manned by guards or other members who have military or rifle training.

    All synagogues need to have armed bodyguards and preferably 25% of members should carry a concealed firearm with them.

    Any people of middle eastern or black descent should be investigated and question in the perimeter. A polite explanation of the situation should resolve any hard feeligns that a decent person would have in regards to questioning.

    All Jewish homes should be equipped with AR-10s, AR-15s, AK-47s and semi automatic shotguns, such as a Saiga 12. A good supply of defense ballistic tip ammo , like Hornady, Black Hills, etc is essential in a combat scenario to prevent overpenetartion shold a close quarter combat situation arise.

    A heavily fortified basement with vault doors is also important for weapon storage and can be used as a safe area to retreat for women and children and others who need protection but cannot flee the premises.

    if you don't see how that kind of thinking is similar to nazi thinking... well there's no hope for the world....

    I realize this will be like spitting into the wind, however, I am willing to give it a try.

    You need to do a little honest research, it will be difficult for you but well-worth it in the end.

    Buy, beg, borrow or steal a Bible and begin to read. Genesis is a very good place to start, the word Genesis means "beginnings."

    Over a year or more (depending on your reading/comprehension skills), you will end up in the book of Revelation. Once there you will discover the world as we know it will have an end, precisely as God said in Genesis.

    Unfortunately for you, at that point in history, there will be no mention of or reference to the U.S.A. But fortunately for you, having done this assignment with an open mind and spirit you may have become a child of God. That is my prayer for you.

    Read up on the BS they call religion and I now know most of it is complete bullshit except the part about helping the poor and the sick and how murder is bad and all the happy crap. Read up on Qur'an Torah and new testament and they all sucked fat balls! I do however consider myself a "child of god" in the sense that "god" is mother earth and we are all her children and I know my fight against religious oppression and the horrors of imperial capitalism will not be in vain. Spirituality is key in weaning yourself from the ego you have that convinces you there is a god and you are the chosen race or whatever, you can never be at peace with the world till you drop all nonsense you were raised on.

    Iran NEVER threatened to wipe Israel off the face of the earth Mahmoud Ahmadinejad never said that it was a mistranslation or a fabricated media lie. The correct for what he was saying is translation is "With the passing of time the Zionist regime will pass away just as the Soviet regime fell in Russia" he never even used the word map, in fact the only state to wipe ANYBODY off the map recently is Israel wiping Palestine off the map. Ahmadinejad even went on to say "the human and civil rights of Jews, Christians and Muslims must be respected". Stop listening to your Zionist controlled media and question even those most "credible" sources. Iran doesn't have nuclear weapons but Israel has hundreds of nuclear, thousands of chemical and biological weapons that they've used on Gaza in operation cast lead. Israel is also the only country in the middle east to ever commit terrorist attacks against the United States directly, U.S.S. Liberty and a failed bombing of a US embassy inside Egypt both incidents they tried to blame Egypt. What kind of "friend" is Israel to America when one of their spies was the mole that got our spies in Soviet Russia busted, tortured, and murdered by the KGB. What kind of allied country that gets so many billions of dollars in support from America would be such a backstabber?

    Some of these comments show a complete lack of understanding of the situation in Gaza.

    Israel has been committing genocide against the Palestinian people for half a century. Just because it's not in concentration camps and there aren't mass killings doesn't mean it's not genocide. Slowly killing off an entire people by blockading their settlements and cutting them off from education, amenities, healthcare, water and arable land is genocide. Let me just drive it in again. Genocide.

    It's amazing to me that people can have a basic understanding of the situation and still side with the aggressors. I guess it comes down to faith, that immovable and irrational wall that people use to justify their faults in action and in logic. Watching clueless Americans donate their time without understanding what they are supporting hurts.

    I love Louis Theroux. His reporting style always gives the viewer an idea of the many ideals concerning the subject, whatever it may be. I only wish he had spent more time with Palestinians in this documentary.

    I own every Louis Theroux documentary, and I encourage anyone who hasn't seen them to take a look. His subject matter spans from the goofy and bizarre to some of the most important issues facing humanity today. Louis seems meek and timid but obviously has balls of steel.

  • Nick Sporek

    @Shugga

    Yeah, a book and a continuous historical presence, Jerusalem always had a Jewish majority since day one even during exile. By the way there are non biblical references all over the place too. A major one is "Josephus"

    Then there's the archeology to prove it. You can go to the digs yourself and see if you don't mind having your bubble popped.

    There's Jewish seminaries to prove Jews lived there.

    There must be countless historical documents from the
    Roman period 63 BCE- 313 CE,
    Byzantine period 313-636 CE,
    Arab Period 636 -1099 CE,
    Crusader domination 1099- 1291,
    Mamluk period 1291-1516 CE,
    Ottoman period 1517 -1917 CE
    and then the British period 1918 -1948.

    The land was called palestine but Jews lived there continuously for over three thousand years, unfortunately mostly under foreign occupiers as you can see from the time line.

    and Shugga, Jews don't need the worlds sympathy anyway but neither do the so called palestinians.

  • Backslider

    @Nick Sporek

    You mention archaeological and historical evidence outside the Bible.

    Josephus is a known liar. His historical accounts in many cases have been shown to be complete fabrications. Any historian will tell you that Josephus alone cannot be believed.

    There is no archaeological evidence that the wailing wall is indeed the Temple of Solomon. In fact, archaeologists have shown that it is the remaining wall of a 17th century cemetery. When these findings were announced Israel immediately pulled the permits out from under the archaeologists.

    The tomb of Joseph is actually the tomb of a 17th century Caliph. Before it existed there was a MOSQUE there.

    There is no physical or verifiable historical evidence of Moses, Abraham, etc. No physical evidence of exodus either.

    This argument will inevitably turn to the "proofs" you will find in the Old Testament, which I believe is the greatest and longest-lasting scam ever perpetrated on mankind. So we might as well forgo the bickering amongst ourselves on this forum, because what science and history show to be true will never be accepted by those that believe the Old Testament is the literal word of God.

    Okay! I know Josephus was working for Rome and isn't completely trustable but Josephus didn't make the Jewish people up out of thin air. You don't have a case there. Sorry.

    I never said that you must believe in the bible and Jews don't go knocking on your door asking you to either.

    You're correct, there is no proof of Abraham, Moses or the Exodus but that doesn't mean there wasn't a Hebrew nation.

    There wasn't a god name Zeus on Mt. Olympus but the Greeks still come from Greece, don't they?
    There may not have been a Romulus and Remus but there was still a Roman Empire.
    There may not have been a "Yellow Emperor" but there is still China.
    Mohamed may not have flew to heaven on a horse named Al-Buraq from the location of the Dome of the Rock but the building is still there.

    If you deny Jews Religious or secular self determination that's your business but we have aright to live in peace and we have aright to a country with defendable borders like anyone else does and Israel is the home land of the Jewish people.

    Some extremist jews are rather silly, believing they are the chosen people, do they really believe that god has a set of favourite people?

    The part of the film that made me change my mind against Israel is when that Jew said we want all of the West Bank. The only reason why they don't take all of the west bank is because there is not enough jews to displace the palestinians there YET, so they are doing it slowly, the goal of these Jews is to wipe out the palestinian people from the west bank, not much different than hitler's plan to wipe out the jews from europe.

    It is not even close, the jews have far better weapons than the arabs, this is not a war or a conflict, it is just jews killing palestinians, in a war the other side at least has a gun. No I can no longer say this is a 50-50 equal wrong doing, jimmy carter is right this is israeli apartheid. The mistake of the Palestinian people is not fighting israel effectively enough.

    @eireannach666

    You want to hear a solution. Fine. International community has to get involved. First on the list are borders that have to be determined by an arbiter and then respected by both sides. A solution will hardly be fair in their eyes but nevertheless the only option that can resolve the conflict with minimal damage. No room for ideologies here. A Palestinian state has to be formed in a true sense of the word. An international army that has no bias toward any party would have to control the borders as there are people on both sides that want the other gone. After a few decades of peace and tolerance time will heal the wounds of the past and both nations can turn a new leaf and start with a new chapter.

    If he were an American Journalist/film maker he'd have been forced to resign and his work would have never seen the light of day (Just ask Helen Thomas).
    Whether people of the Jewish faith have lived in this region since the beginning of time or not is irrelevant. The way they treat others with historical connections to the same land is abhorrent. There will never be peace in the region as long as inequality and repression are built into the policies and procedures of the state.
    Most importantly, take a look at history and see how the modern state was formed.... It was formed out of the same "terrorist" activities they denounce the arab population for using today.
    Although I'm not a religious person I do find great inspiration in many of the teachings of religious doctrine.

    i think most of the viewres dont know to separate between western bank and israel ! also the israelies arabs vote and have rightsin israel state . the palestinians vote and get thier rights in palestina which today is a country with laws police and parlament ! anyway the jewish settlers are crazyyyyyy !!!

  • Mitsy

    1. This video is inaccurate in that it is one-sided only.

    2. Why is the West Bank under (mainly) Israeli control today? Because in 1967 and in 1973 the Arabs attacked Israel. They lost the war and today they want back the land that they lost.

    3. Yes, there are also Jewish extremists, no doubt, but this video makes it look as if there are no Arab extremists. Why not?

    4. There is no presentation of the normal average Israeli that is against the extremist settlers, but instead emphasizes adolescents like Yair that do not represent the majority of Israelis.

    5. Note that in election after election in Israel the extremist parties are not elected.

    6. A video of this kind can only exacerbate the problems and the attempts to delegitimize the existence of the State of Israel.

    For some reason the quote I answered is missing from the above feedback...

    Here it is:

    There is not archaeological evidence that the wailing wall is indeed the Temple of Solomon. In fact, archaeologists have shown that it is the remaining wall of a 17th century cemetery.

    I recently viewed a leading Christian Zionist, Rev. James Hagee, and was impressed that he supported Zionism based upon the belief "Jews are God's Chosen People." Needless to say, that means the rest of humanity is nothing but unchosen scum. This designation fits people like Hagee but most of us feel that this statement is as insulting as was Hitler's calling Germans "The Master Race." But since a group of idle old men sitting in the sun far too long authored this nonsense it is about time the rest of us to demand it be stopped.

    @Mitsy

    I realize that the state of Israel and others with vested interests are doing their best to prove the historical ownership of the lands the state currently occupies.
    As I've said earlier, This is irrelevant. Arabs have lived on this land for centuries. Even if the land was occupied only by people of Jewish faith (a laughable theory, but let's use our imaginations) before that time doesn't give them the right to come back centuries later and take the land from the owners. Imagine me, an American of German and British descent, going back to Europe tomorrow claiming the land as my own due to historical ownership.

  • Nick Sporek

    If israel or the Jews wanted to commit genocide against the palestinians it would have been done a long time ago. Israel has the weaponry to do it many times over but it has never been the intention and probably never will be either.

    "...people ...hate them... for just being Jewish."

    Only children hate people just for the sake of a name. It's what the name comes to symbolize. The young Israeli living in the makeshift structure with three other guys typifies the problem. He is arrogant and racially hubristic. "The chosen people" indeed? Align his arrogance and false superiority, AKA 'religion', with huge military resources and you have your 'policices génocidaire'.
    Israel is gradually losing support around the world and among the best of us, including some of their own. In isolation they risk reprisal on a large scale. This world gives Jews a compensatory free pass on many issues(if not we'd all be accused of anti-semiticism by Abe Foxman). But the time has already come when people are openly discussing what they have observed for the last 60 years, i.e.--- often where there are Jews, trouble follows. Why is this? Am I an anti-semite to have spoken thus? Should we fear for all of our souls if Israel keeps pulling the tiger's tail?

    "Most people are completly (sic) unaware that the jews (sic) want to control 100% of the west bank and commit genociede against the palestinians (sic), this was na ey opener for me."

    Most people are 'unaware' of the idea because it is completely false. Most Jews aren't involved in the situation at all. Most Israelis are not in the least interested in owning the West Bank - just look at the results of the Israeli elections and who wins the majority of the votes.

    Do you even know why it is called the West Bank? Because it was the West Bank of JORDAN. They appropriated it in 1947 and refused to allow the Arab refugees there the right to settle anywhere else. They kept them in small, dirty, crowded refugee camps in order to put pressure on Israel. At the same time Israel settled hundreds of thousands of immigrants in housing, provided jobs and made good citizens of them. BTW - Immigrants thrown out of the Islamic culture countries outnumbered the number of immigrants from Europe.

    The West Bank came under Israeli jurisdiction because Jordan joined the war against Israel in 1967 and in 1973. They lost the lands in the war - now suddenly it is Israel's fault?

  • mitsy

    @Lary Nine 137

    No, it is because Israel does have equal rights for all, unlike most of the Islamic culture countries that surround Israel.

    Try taking a look at any map of the world or of the middle east. Who is surrounded by whom?

  • Lary Nine

    @mitsy~
    I wasn't referring to the entire eastern environs of the Mediterranean, I was talking about the West Bank. Perhaps you ought to take your pick of maps...

  • Lary Nine

    @mitsy~
    "...it is because Israel does have equal rights for all..."

    I have no wish to contradict your sweeping, generalization but unforunately, that is simply not true at all. Just watch the film to which we're reacting. It has multiple examples of egregious human rights violations on display all through it.

    PS: I put up a link for maps of the West Bank but it's in moderation for the link. Anyway, I wasn’t referring to the entire eastern area of the Mediterranean, I was talking pretty much about the West Bank. This film was about Palestinians vs. Israelis, no[?].

  • mitsy

    The West Bank is not part of Israel - that is why there are so many problems with it. It is land taken in a war of aggression against Israel and has been in limbo ever since.

    The fact is that Israeli Arabs do have equal rights.

    This video is no proof of anything except that some Israelis are also fanatics - not the majority, not even many, but some...the attempt to show them as a majority is downright false.

    The entire eastern area of the Mediterranean? What do you mean? The West Bank is to the east of Israel and to the west of Jordan. Are you referring to all of Israel? To Lebanon? To Syria?

    No, the video was not about Palestinians vs Israelis. It was about some Palestinian fanatics vs some Israeli fanatics. Please get your priorities right.

  • Lary Nine

    @misty~
    I admit that was a bad choice of words..."entire eastern area of the Mediterranean". I meant the middle eastern geography of the eastern Mediterrean.
    But I don't think I said the West Bank was part of Israel. It's within Israel the way the small town of Metuchen, New Jersey lies within Woodbridge, NJ. See the link address now embedded in my comment #140.

    I expect that I am a good deal better educated than you are - just what you write and how you write it is proof of that much anyway.

    Yes, some of the Muslim nations surrounding Israel are doing exactly what you say: "the Muslim world is sitting there plotting attacks on Israel" (Please note the correct spelling.)

    Shall I name a couple that have said so again and again in public - Assad and Ahmadinejad - and they are not alone.

    Why did I watch this? The fact that you have to ask is proof positive of your lack of education.

    The suicide bombers are not in the situation that you suggest. The opposite is true. They are searching for glory and reward in paradise. It is Israel that is fighting for survival, as she has been since the day of her birth.

  • Lary Nine

    @mitsy~
    On maps:
    Pick one... your choice... unlike the Palestinian people. All the area maps clearly show the geography of injustice being perpetrated in the area.
    What am I saying? Here's what I'm saying, as I already said:

    "Israel is gradually losing support around the world and among the best of us, including some of their own. In isolation they risk reprisal on a large scale. This world gives Jews a compensatory free pass on many issues, but the time has already come when people are openly discussing what they have observed for the last 60 years, i.e.— often where there are Zionists [sic], trouble follows. Why is this? Am I an anti-semite to have spoken thus? Should we fear for all of our souls if Israel keeps pulling the tiger’s tail?"

    You've chosen small details to argue about like maps and levels of education which reveals the real weakness of your position--- moral context. BTW, it's doubtful if your educational achievements exceeds mine in any substantive way, so don't bring that ineffectual sh*t to a genuine debate of ideas again.

  • mitsy

    @Lary Nine

    Oh dear, so many confused ideas at once...

    1. Why are you arguing another person's mistaken statements? Do you perhaps have a problem with reading comprehension? The remarks made by me about level of education were in answer to "logical's" post, not yours...kapish?

    2. Re the maps: Do you know the meaning of Area A, Area B and so as decided by the Oslo Accords? Are you aware that Israel has withdrawn from most of the the West Bank and that the Palestinians have control of those areas? And are you aware of the kind of "justice" they dish out to their own people?

    What injustice is being perpetrated on the Palestinian people by Israel? That Israel is defending herself against armed aggression? If that is injustice in your eyes, then you have a very big problem with understanding the definition of justice.

    3. "Often where there are Zionists trouble follows": How many nations are at war with Zionists or Zionism? How many nations are at war with militant Islam? Do you know? In the latter case: Afghanistan, Bosnia, Cote d'Ivoire, Cyprus, East Timor,India, Indonesia (Ambon), Indonesia (Halmahera), Iraq (Sunni vs Shiite), Israel, Kashmir, Kosovo, Kurdistan, Macedonia, Nigeria, Pakistan (Suni vs Shi'ite), Philippines, Russia (Chechnya), Somalia (Wahabi vx. Sufi), Sudan, Thailand, Uganda.

    In only one case is the conflict with the Jewish people of Israel. The rest are against Christians, of different varieties e.g. Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Protestants and so on, Hindus, Kurds, Animists, Buddhists, etc., etc., etc.

    4. Please don't try to give orders to other people. You will not succeed.

    5. Is the use of words that require an asterisk to be printed the sign of an effectual and genuine debate in your opinion? LOL, LOL

    Look... I've read your points but I stand by what I said. I tried twice to make it clearer for you to no avail. It's obvious at this point that you just want to argue. However, that'll be problematic for you because I'm done clarifying comments. We disagree and I'm OK with that. Eim'outtaheer.

    Judaism and Islam are religions not races. Arab and Semitic are races not religions. So for Jews to claim that they are all Semitic is as wrong as claiming all Muslims are Arabs. Furthermore, the Arabs are Semitic race they are descendant of Abraham. Finally the historical claim of the Israelis (mainly white Caucasian) is as fraudulent as an white Caucasian Hindu claiming India.

    Shame that Israelis have been earning a bad reputation every country they go travelling in, post "army" time. Whether its New Zealand, India or South Asia, I seem to have heard about and encountered so many negative attitudes of "arrogance", "brashness" and "thanklessness" , "disdain" and "cultural insensitivity" displayed by and large by Israeli travellers.Of course there are the exceptions, but from people I've spoken to in the travel industry-they're few and far between.The attitude we take with us as travellers/tourists speaks volumes of where we come from as people.
    I come from a religiously diverse country that has had and respected its Jewish communities for centuries, but who I speak of are travellers from Israel who've just finished the cpmpulsory army/brainwashing time. Their attitude as travellers seems a direct reflection of their attitude back "home" toward the Palestinian people, who have just as much a right to live with equality, in their sacred land. The assumption of being "chosen" is nothing but arrogance (and a fabrication), and most people in the world seem to have dwindling amounts of tolerance for this attitude. But Karma is always well worth waiting for. In the meantime, it breaks my heart to know that there are israeli and palestinian best friends out there ,who can't wait for change to come and sense to reign.

  • too much panache

    All this talk about Israelis seems to bring out people's true, yet irrational feelings about the Jews. They use the Palestinian plight as a cover for their anti-semitic venom.

    When I was in college, a fellow student who happened to be Jewish approached me and asked me if I can ask someone to stop harassing him because he is Jewish. I approached that person and said to him that as 1 Christian to another, I do not think his actions were very Christian-like. He then told me about the Palestinians. I asked him what is the relevance? After a few minutes, he admitted that it was just a front to hide his anti-semitism.

    Same here. People who would never give money to help a poor person will pour in millions to help the Palestinian "cause." Why? Because they hate the Jews, without any rhyme or reason.

    What Theroux did was strange. He gave the settler movement its own voice. The settlers did a good job of giving their message.

    "Same here. People who would never give money to help a poor person will pour in millions to help the Palestinian “cause.” Why? Because they hate the Jews, without any rhyme or reason."

    Its this same "victim" mentality of "why, why me" -that infuriates anti-occupation supporters. Besides, no hatred(as you choose to call it) is ever based on "no rhyme or reason". Whether the reason is justified or not is another argument.
    Its irrational that the strength of feeling that supports anti-occupation is written off as "anti-semitic". Perhaps its just convenient. And the truth isn't always convenient.
    The sheer unapologetic arrogance with which the occupation operates is shocking.

    Zionism and the modern Israeli state are one of history's greatest (and most disgusting) ironies.

  • too much panache

    I appreciate all the comments. However, simply repeating Nazi/Hamas rhetoric is not impressive.

    When I lived in Boulder in 2006, I participated in a pro-Palestinian march. About 200 or so people joined in a March promoting Palestinian elections and the hope of a new Palestinian state. I marched together with others who were waving the green Hamas flags. They were also carrying copies of mein kampf. The media was there in full force.

    Three weeks later in Boulder, I participated in a march to bring awareness to the people of Darfur. 9 people showed up. No media coverage.

    It is documented fact that the people of Darfur have an extremely serious and dangerous situation. Yet, nobody cares. On the other hand, the world cares a lot about the Palestinians. Hmmm, I wonder why.

    You gotta ask yourself after watching the utter irrational sense of entitlement these Jewish settlers have, did they foster the same type of hatred in Germany? Did they just push too hard for too long and foster the type of hatred that got human history heading down it's darkest path? These people quite obviously need to be stopped - for their own good!

    Reply @ Levap

    Wow, I feel sorry for you. The dark side has really taken a hold of you inside and out.

    I don't deny that there are Jews that have some contempt for Christians (read some of our history and you'll see why. I recommend The Jews, God and History by Max I. Dimont he's a non-Jew)
    But "hate" is way too strong a word. Many Jews even marry Christians, believe it or not. As for what it says in the Torah about Jesus, well thats where you really gave your self away. You see:
    Jesus was a Jew, he learned and taught the Torah because it was WRITTEN OVER A THOUSAND YEARS BEFORE HE WAS BORN. So how could the Torah be referring to Jesus as "dirty dog" or a bi.ch as you say? There is no mention of Jesus in the Torah at all. Somebody really brainwashed you. Get some help.

    And No, I don't "believe" what I said about Jews valuing human life about all else because believe can be changed, I KNOW for a fact that Jews value human life before all else. I am a Jew and that was the way I was taught from day one. Israel has the military capability to wipe out our enemies from the map but hasn't even threatened it because that isn't our way. Nowhere in the Torah does it say that Jews are humans and non-Jews are made to serve us, no where. Why do think the Jewish farmer was so surprised to get served by a Christian? It must say that some where in the Christian "new Testament" but not in the Torah.
    No where was it written in the Torah that the world must be Jewish for god to love them and Judaism doesn't teach that either. FYI- most Jew regard the Torah and the rest of the bible as mythological metaphysics mixed with history and don't believe it or practice it.

    Why was Israel first in line to help out Haiti last year? Do you think we got paid for that?
    Why did Israel send aid to the Tsunami victims in Indonesia (A Muslim country I might add)?
    Israel would do a lot more for the world if we didn't have to spend the vast majority of our resources on security. Look up "tikun olam".

    You were taught to hate us by someone that was jealous and feared us. They way put all Jews into one sweeping category show how you probably never even met a Jew and never finished jr. high school.

    If you want a real “eye opener” go to Israel and see it for yourself and don’t let OPEC- opps I mean the BBC i"
    Israel doesn't want to bomb them because that is too obvious, they want to do it slowly and over time like in this film so that people do not stop them and the un doesn't condemn them

    '“Most people are completly (sic) unaware that the jews (sic) want to control 100% of the west bank and commit genociede against the palestinians (sic), this was na ey opener for me.”'
    "Most people are ‘unaware’ of the idea because it is completely false. Most Jews aren’t involved in the situation at all. Most Israelis are not in the least interested in owning the West Bank – just look at the results of the Israeli elections and who wins the majority of the votes."

    From what I see the israelis want to take all of the west bank. If it is untrue, then the other israelis have moral obligation to stand up and condemn those israelis in the west bank just like mustlims have the obligation to condemn terrorist who abuse islam to bomb innocent people.

    "Do you even know why it is called the West Bank? Because it was the West Bank of JORDAN. They appropriated it in 1947 and refused to allow the Arab refugees there the right to settle anywhere else. They kept them in small, dirty, crowded refugee camps in order to put pressure on Israel. At the same time Israel settled hundreds of thousands of immigrants in housing, provided jobs and made good citizens of them. BTW – Immigrants thrown out of the Islamic culture countries outnumbered the number of immigrants from Europe.
    The West Bank came under Israeli jurisdiction because Jordan joined the war against Israel in 1967 and in 1973. They lost the lands in the war – now suddenly it is Israel’s fault?

    No, Lary, I'm not. Way to go. You've missed the point completely…or did you just decide to ignore it because the possibility was a little too intimidating for you, perhaps? What allowed the Third Reich to do what they eventually did was a deep seated hatred among the general populace towards Jews and that just didn't come out of thin air. Nor was it manufactured by propaganda, built on, yes, but not manufactured. Now, just stop that thought right there. I'm not offering an excuse here for the Holocaust, just saying, that from watching this doc you gotta ask yourself…are what we are seeing here, is it in anyway representative of how Jews acted then? Were they religious fanatics with no respect for the lives of other people? Did they maliciously seek to undermine their neighbors whenever possible? Did they seek to destroy their livelihoods in the hope that they would just give up and go away or just submit? Were they racsists? I'll say it again, because you generally have to when discussing anything that questions Jewish acts, I'm not offering an excuse here for the Holocaust. Even if the answer to the above questions are all yes, it wouldn't in any sane man's mind vindicate Hitlers actions. Hitler was a madman, yes, but what initally allowed a nations empathy to run dry, embolding him forward? Did we just see it?

    @David~
    I stand by what I said in #184 because after rereading yours [#183] again, I'm not persuaded that I forgot how to read for content and meaning. You claim I missed the point completely but you didn't make any point in #183 resembling what you're saying in #188.

    Your quoted text in #183 was:
    "You gotta ask yourself after watching the utter irrational sense of entitlement these Jewish settlers have, did they foster the same type of hatred in Germany? Did they just push too hard for too long and foster the type of hatred that got human history heading down it’s darkest path?"

    If I missed the point here---then it's because you didn't make it---that point is MIA. It still looks to me like you're blaming Europe's 'pushy' Jews for 'fostering' the Third Reich's "final solution to the Jewish question".

    Let me just say that Louis is a fantastic reporter and documentarist. I leave the intractable Israel/Palestine problems to others.

    Hey Achems...you from Winnie the Peg? lol
    27 yrs ago i was travelling by plane from BC to Quebec with a third degree burn on my foot. My daughter who was 3 by then was sitting on my laps during a change of plane in Winnipeg in a wheel chair. She said to me:"Is this where Winnie the Peg lives?
    That was surely the best part of that long trip.

    I found it quite surprising that the Jews in this docomentary come across as scary Religious fanatics...the chrisitans, from Denver, come across deluded religious the fantics ....but the Muslims, who we all know ARE Religous fanatics (im being sarcastic)...do not ONCE mention Allah, or the Koran or religion...yes they are angry, but not once do they come across as relgious fanatics...they just come across as people have been treated badly and are angry.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Miles-Davis/696577564 Miles Davis

    I think it should be pointed out (and Theroux has said this in all interviews) that these are the hardest of hard line jews. I have met alot of Israelis in my travels around the world and alot (especially younger ones from Tel Aviv) feel what they are doing is wrong. Mind you others cant say the word "Muslim" without saying the word "Terrorist".

  • ThePhilhw

    Think you have a very strong point here and thansk for the courage in making it.

  • Guest

    This documentary was alright. I liked this Gonzo Journalism style. Yet more evidence revealing the sheer aggressiveness inherent in Israeli's/Most Jews. All I can say right now is...Today, Zionism is the ultimate definition of Evil!

  • hpthoroughbreds

    i'm looking at a comment posted 1 hr. ago and now the doc is no longer available?? david lynch? what gives???

    @hpthoroughbreds

    I watched this Documentary on liveleaks (dot) com. Type 'Louis Theroux Ultra Zionists' and search. The link is also below in the comments somewhere.

    Palestinians defend the lives of their children and elders while watching their houses, wells, orchards etc. being bulldozed by Israeli bulldozers , and Israel calls it acts of aggression.

  • kikis2

    Oh David Lynch, why must you do this to me?

  • Slayaa

    And if an Arab was to move into a Jewish settlement? Oh no wait ... Arab's aren't even allowed to set foot in them, except to build their homes on stolen land. So what was your point again HHV?

    This documentary made me so sick. I hope these ultra zionists get what they deserve, but with the backing of US I can't see that happening. Shame on these ignorant Jews! How dare that idiot Australian Jew tried to emotionally blackmail the viewer with Auschwitz. If these scumbags could get away with it they would do the same thing to the Palestinians! A country that is stolen and built on hate will never become a place of love. You reap what you sow.

    I bet none of these ultra zionists were ever in concentration camps, if they were, I am sure they would not want to harass and victimise an entire race because of their bigotry. They knew what it was like to suffer because of that and I am sure that the majority would never do that to another human being. The Jews should have been put back into Germany. Why punish the Palestinians? Shame on the western nations that created Israel because of fictional book. Shame on the Israeli government that continues to steal more and more Palestinian land. SHAME!

  • tylerrumble

    ok I'll give you a run down. Jews are being obnoxious and have notions of entitlement . They took land away from the Palestinians and expect no reprisals....nothing new

  • leehov

    This journalist is brilliant! I wanted to just check out the documentary and watch it for 5 mins then go to sleep, but couldn't stop.

    I live in Israel for a bit over a year,before coming here I called myself a Zionist. Living in the country and getting to know Israelis, their country, their views and politics opened my eyes. Now I refuse to prioritize any religion or nation in any way, even though I respect other people's believes, conclusion is that those factors just separate society and raise hatred towards each other. I have to say that Israelis are great people, very open, very kind and actually very worldly... and those facts make it ridiculous that they don't see what is happening in front of their noses. Israelis just don't understand that they are actually taking some people's freedom away. Jews, that Louis is talking about, are not the majority of Israelis, they represent not a big group, but that group turns out to be very influential.
    I would really want to see more about Palestinian government and actions towards its own people( Louis doesn't mention it, but Palestinian government doesn't treat its citizens any better than Israeli Government treats them). Sorry for mixing all the information together, but there are so many things that can be said on this topic. I just keep hoping that Israelis and Palestinians will find peace eventually, because they are so much alike, it's irony of life. And again: great, great documentary made by a real professional who is not afraid to ask the right questions. (Please pay attention that it just covers a part of the whole conflict).

    lot of foolish people out there that would like to pretend the universe was made for them and whoever thinks like them

  • techcafe

    such arrogance and sense of entitlement on the part of militant Zionists, it's revolting.

  • Troy Taylor

    It's either steal the Palestinians' land or go back to "the ovens of Auschwitz" ("or the shores of Australia"). I didn't know the Holocaust continued on for another 60+ years or that Australia was as bad.

  • Anthony

    Look at the surrounding Muslim/Arab world before throwing stones at Israel. Viva Israel.

  • Maria

    You know..I'm not against or pro any party, but the truth is if you read the Bible you will read "the land of Philistine" which is The Arabic word for Palestine, so the Palesinians can argue that God told them it's thier land too. Also, the fact that the Jewish people have an army,police and weapons(including nuclear weapons) and the Arabs have nothing to fight with except stones..that's quite alarming. And the attitude of the Jewish people is extremely arrogant...I mean to insult the presenter for being Athiest is quit rude really. And what bothers me the most is that the Jews keep talking about the horrors of the holocaust...but aren't they doing them same to the Palestinians?? Statistically, the numbers of Palestinians killed by the Jews far exceeds the number of Jews killed by Hitler.

  • LoggerheadShrike

    Well no, statistically, the casualties of the conflict in Israel-Palestine are not actually very high ... about 3000 since 1999. That's compared to millions killed in the camps in WW2. The media blows the scale of the conflict out of all proportion; 1 death in hte Israeli conflict probably generates more coverage than 10 thousand in Africa.
