Dopey Op-Doc at NYTimes

January 25, 2012

Media_http3bpblogspot_axtai(myrightword.blogspot.com) At the NYTimes, you can see an op-doc by Ra’anan Alexandrowicz, writer and director of “The Law in These Parts,” which is screening at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. He lives in Jerusalem and teaches film at the Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film and Television School and read this introduction:

Israel’s Supreme Court is the body that provides checks and balances to the country’s executive and legislative powers, upholding constitutional standards…
¶ In the four decades since the 1967 Six-Day War between Israel and its Arab neighbors, the court has become a stage for an escalating conflict between two very different world views.
¶ Israel is the only modern state that has held territories under military occupation for over four decades. It is also unusual for a nation to allow residents of territories under a military occupation to petition its Supreme Court and request intervention in acts of state.
¶ Since the early years of the occupation…[rather] than functioning as the bastion of human rights that it was established to be, it has instead become the entity responsible for balancing the needs of a state engaged in a prolonged occupation with basic principles of democracy.
¶ This Op-Doc expands on one of the themes explored in my new feature documentary, “The Law in These Parts,” and asks about the role of the Supreme Court in the legal underpinnings of the longest military occupation in modern times.

(My Right Word) left this comment there:

RA is being petulantly picayune writing: “Israel is the only modern state that has held territories under military occupation for over four decade”. Really?
Consider:
Morocco’s occupation of Western Sahara has “only” lasted three plus decades. Turkey’s occupation of Northern Cyprus – a mere 37 years. But Russia’s occupation of the Kuril Islands began in August 1945…
And Tibet has been occupied by China since 1949.
And many consider Northern Ireland occupied, even after the 1998 arrangements of an Executive.
But I suggest the term is “belligerent occupation”, resulting from an Arab war of aggression in 1967 and by acting in defense, not only does Israel have the right to retain all or most of the territories it now administers, but as Schweible, Rostow and other international law experts claim, Israel has a better right than anyone to remain there in Judea and Samaria based on, at the least, discussions, declarations and decisions of Balfour 1917, the Versailles Peace Conference of 1919, the San Remo Conference of 1920 and the League of Nations 1922.
And isn’t it amazing that none of this legalese was ever voiced when those territories were invaded by, illegally occupied by and illegally annexed to Jordan all through 1948-1967?

(My Right Word) left out Kashmir.

comment: Kashmir was what first came to mind when I was reading the top and the idea that Israel was the only Occupier immediately rang false with me as well.

Jay-Z set to launch Occupy Wall Street T-shirt line – but profits won’t go to 99%

November 13, 2011
Russell Simmons and Jay-Z backstage on Nov. 8 at a Watch the Throne concert, with Jay-Z wearing his "Occupy All Streets" T-shirt.

(New York Daily News) Jay-Z wears his ‘Occupy All Streets’ T-shirt backstage with Russell Simmons at a Nov. 8 Watch the Throne concert in Madison Square Garden. Millionaire rapper Jay-Z is set to launch an Occupy Wall Street T-shirt line Friday — but he doesn’t plan to share the profits with the 99%. A spokeswoman for the mega entertainer’s Rocawear clothing label said the T-shirts were being produced in support of the movement, but not financially. The T-shirts will read, “Occupy All Streets” and will be similar to one Jay-Z was seen wearing at a recent concert. “At this time, we have not made an official commitment to monetarily support the movement,” the Rocawear spokeswoman said in a statement to the Gawker website. Meanwhile, Occupy Wall Street protesters continued their march to Washington, D.C. Thursday, saying their spirits were high after getting some unforeseen change of route, the group still arrived at its first scheduled stop in Elizabeth, N.J., on Wednesday night, and made it to Rahway, N.J. in time for lunch Thursday. A family there fed them peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches, fruit and water. They picked up six new marchers , losing one en route, and expected to make it some 18 miles to New Brunswick, N.J. by nightfall Thursday. “We are all in high spirits and determined,” said Glazer, whose band hopes to pull into the nation’s capital on Nov. 23, and plans to persuade lawmakers not to extend the Bush-era tax cuts for the rich.


Occupy Birthright Israel, Un-Occupy Palestine

(h/t Carl) what the leftist Jews are up to. They have to reinforce themselves and say everything twice. should anyone feel animosity towards misogyny I suggest they educate these ladies. Listening to their voice is like hearing a fork on a chalkboard. My immediate reaction is one of having to restrain any violent thoughts I have. I’m not sure if they really believe in the cause they are pushing or if they are interested in bothering people. The smirks on their faces betray them. There has got to be a better outlet for the ladies. I’m fairly certain that is Max Blumenthal in the vidie, but not certain. Corrupting the ladies. Some guys will go to incredible lengths to… well you know. Also mentioned in the video is the Jewish Federation. I wish they were the right wing Jews these ladies are making them out to be, because the fact is that they fund many events that are critical of Israel, but this just shows you how far out in left field these freaks are. They have no sense of balance, proportion or reason. AIPAC itself is not the institution that these ladies are making it out to be. Also… another issue. I think this group of leftists are breaking the law. they are infringing the right of an assembly to free expression. (that was proven at U C Irvine in the courts)

NYTIMES: OWS DOESN’T LOOK LIKE 99% – IT HAS NO DIVERSITY

October 29, 2011
Bullshit. Those videos about the Jews controlling Wall street were made by minorities. This is just the NYTimes trying to spin why their movement is a fail. It is a fail because when you glorify terrorists by having kefiyehs… it isn’t Left wing… it isn’t Right wing. You are a bunch of ASSHOLES! and you deserve to fail (h/t astute blogger) CLICK HERE FOR ARTICLE.

oh… and by the way… if you would open your eyes you might realize why there are so many white people at OWS. It is because the white people are BROKE and the government is discriminating against them. But these youth are indoctrinated by their leftist education so they can’t say that the affirmative action culture is killing their opportunity. …and no I’m not saying we should blame minorities or women… we should blame elitists and their bullshit intentions to social engineer.  Our public relations is killing our lives.
