Zionism and anti-Semitism are distinctive. Conflating them doesn't wash. It's a canard. It's a scheme to divide Jews into good and bad categories.
Samer Issawi's a Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine activist. In April 2004, he was wrongfully arrested. He committed no crime.
America and Israel partner in injustice. They prioritize it. Imperial lawlessness is policy. So is state terror. Many examples explain. They're commonplace daily.
NYT pro-Israeli bias is palpable. It's longstanding. It's distorted and one-sided. It blames Palestinians for Israeli crimes.

"Rebel against the Occupation. No – it is forbidden for us to rule over another people, to oppress another [people]. The most important thing is to achieve peace and an end to the cycle of blood[letting]. My generation dreamed of peace. I so want to achieve it. You have the power to help. All my hopes are with you. If only [you could]."
Societies perhaps are best judged by how they treat prisoners, their most disadvantaged and children.
Peace process deception is policy. It's always been a charade. It is now. Israel wants it that way. So does Washington.

It is noteworthy that today the strongest support for Israel in the international arena comes from the United States, Canada and Australia...settler-colonial societies based on extermination or expulsion of indigenous populations in favor of a higher race, and where such behavior is considered natural and praiseworthy.
Israel operates one of the world's most unconscionable gulags. Thousands of Palestinian political prisoners fill it. Fundamental human rights are denied. Torture, ill-treatment and medical neglect are commonplace.

Incidents of discrimination have doubled each year since 2008 and are increasingly perpetrated by youth.
Palestinians are prevented from returning to their land. They're unable to reclaim stolen property. Israeli law calls it no longer theirs. It does so lawlessly.
On March 30, Palestinians worldwide observe Land Day. They've done so since 1976. Nationwide protests and general strike action erupted. At issue was Israel's land confiscation policy and brutal occupation harshness.
Washington and Israel have unbreakable ties. They're longstanding. Obama's visit affirmed them. He ignored Palestinian suffering. Occupation harshness wasn't mentioned. Nor was Israel's most extremist government in history. It reflects fascism writ large. Obama supports its worst crimes.
