Eden Abergil, former Israel government militant, proudly posted pictures with bound and blindfolded prisoners to her Facebook profile. She is defending her pride and went so far to say she would “gladly kill Arabs—even slaughter them”, adding: “In war there are no rules.”
Yousef Munayyer, executive director at The Jerusalem Fund & The Palestine Center, debated this is much bigger issue of racism and dehumanization with Richard Hellman, president at the Middle East Research Center on “The Alonya Show” at RT where host Alonya Minkovski goes a bit fair, asking if this is Israel’s Abu Ghraib. The images were extraordinarily graphic from Abu Ghraib, but more importantly, more people paid attention to it, yet not enough. Her point that the “dehumanization” aspect is striking and goes to the root of the problem (8:41):

Prof. Noam Chomsky discussed the history of the ‘special relationship’ between the U.S. and Israel, how the mainstream media manufactures consent for it, how it relates to the manipulation of language regarding factions like Hamas and Hezbollah, the U.S.-Israel ‘preference for expansion over security’, and the history of U.S.-Israel active rejection of establishing the Middle East as a Nuclear Weapon-Free Zone with Kathleen Wells at Race-Talk (38:19):

A 2001 recording shows the Israeli prime minister telling a family he never intended to meet the goals of the Oslo Accords, of Washington’s ignorance and his conscious deceit of then-President Clinton in the 1990s and that policy to the ends of ‘collapsing’ the Palestinians as his preferred strategy in the occupied territories (8:44):

Cenk Uygur at “The Young Turks” on the “pathetic attempts to defend Israel in flotilla attack”, specifically by Chris Matthews at MSNBC and Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.). Mr. Uygur now “has no respect for Chris Matthews or Barney Frank”, he says, but we’ll see how long that lasts. My guess: somewhere between now and the party pre-midterm election conventions, Mr. Uygur could very well act “pragmatically”. Hopefully not, but either way, this is a great comment (12:02):
