New Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett: “I’ve killed lots of Arabs in my life and there’s no problem with that”


The just-announced formation of a new government in Israel is not a cause for celebration. For those who might think new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett must be an improvement after 12 years of appalling racism from Benjamin Netanyahu – think again!

Netanyahu was infamous for statements of race-hatred such as:

  • “The way to deal with Palestinians is to beat them up. Not once but repeatedly, beat them up so it hurts so badly, until its unbearable”
  • “Palestinians are an existential threat to Israel”
  • “Israeli is not a state for all its citizens” (ie he’s right – it’s an apartheid state – Palestinians are second-class citizens)

(If anyone isn’t sure just how racist these statements are – replace the word “Palestinians” with the word “Jews” and read them again!)

Bennett is from Yamina, a party to the right of Netanyahu, and like Netanyahu he is a fully matured racist, he does not support even a two-state solution for Palestinians and his political party sees Palestinians – all Palestinians – as the enemy.

Bennett is on record as advocating the murder of Palestinians taken prisoner. The former Israeli Defence Force officer says: “I’ve killed lots of Arabs in my life and there’s no problem with that”

TDB Recommends

The number two on Yamina’s party list, Ayelet Shaked, has called for genocide of Palestinians. She posted on Facebook saying “the entire Palestinian people is the enemy” and justifies its destruction, “including its elderly and its women, its cities and its villages, its property and its infrastructure.” She calls for the slaughter of Palestinian mothers who give birth to “little snakes.”

A day after Shaked’s facebook post, Palestinian teenager Muhammad Abu Khudair was kidnapped and burned alive by six Israeli Jewish youths.

So you understand just how awful this woman is – here is a recent Ayelet Shaked election campaign video. It is not a spoof – it’s her actual election video.

In any self-respecting country Bennett and Shaked would be in prison for inciting race hatred and violence against Palestinians – but no – they are leading the new government.

Bennett’s election should signal to our government that Palestinians will never gain human rights without serious accountabilities (sanctions) put in place against Israel after 73 years of racism, apartheid and unbridled brutality against Palestinians.


    • And the trajectory for this conflict (for want of a better word) will only ever get worse.

      Bringing down Apartheid in South Africa was inevitable after so much international pressure mounted against it but this will never be the case with Israel.

      Many Jews believe it is their god given right, nay destiny, to occupy all of Palestine and as far as they are concerned that’s the alpha and omega of it. No amount of activism will change the way Jews interpret their religious doctrines.

      What is more look at how many high level politicians in the USA are of Jewish faith. Their imaginary man in the sky says Israel shall reign no matter what.

      No it’s just going to get worse

      • Your dead wrong? The Sky God you used to describe God, a quote you ripped off from Cenk Uygur of TYT, rejected the 12 Tribe Kingdom of Judah/Israel, 2000 yrs ago, when they conspired with the Romans to murder his Son! They lost their inheritance to this Land & his protection from that day & onwards! This was confirmed in 70 CE when the Romans obliterated Jerusalem & killed a estimated 1 million Jews! The Jews who survived where taken into captivity & that’s when the Arabs took over this region & it became Palestine! The Nazi Holocaust of the Jews in WW2 confirmed that their rejection as a Race was beyond any doubt! Todays Israel is a illegitimate State made up of European Jews, transplanted there by a duplicitous British Empire in the waning days of its dying reign, a English experiment to subjugate the Arabs in the Middle East!

  1. the use of technology in warfare has become so advanced that Israel’s killer robots now have their own brand of perfume and nail varnish

  2. “Netanyahu was infamous for statements of race-hatred”

    I like to points out to my Jewish wife that they are all Arabs albeit one lot has a lot more grey matter.

    Not many comments here. Are you deleting the ones you don’t like?

  3. Finally…hopefully someone to take Hamas by the scruff of the neck and wipe out the top leadership, then turn their attention on Iran. THEN finally peace may ensue, get the Iran influence out of Gaza.
    Gotta break a few eggs to make an omelette, but end result will be peace, at least more peaceful, for the region.

    • @ im right. You have all the charm of snot on a door nob while staying true to your nom de plume. Yes. You are indeed Right. A greedy, lazy, world destroying Right.

    • You forgot one small detail Im right. The current coalition is dependent on Palestinian votes. Do you think they will support a holocaust that would ultimately include themselves and their families. As for Israel turning its attention attention to Iran, would they have the balls? They obviously won’t be able to rely on the US who never win wars anyway. Also, don’t forget, Hezbollah were only armed to a rudimentary level but kicked Israel’s arse out of Lebanon. Of course, Iran is too close for the nuclear option.

      The real questions are how long can such a disparate government can last and what will the next incarnation look like and if all else fails, will Israel reverse its extremist racist attitudes and negotiate a two state solution. Peace will never take hold as long as there is no compromise.

      With your bloodlust, will you go over to join the fray or are you all piss and wind?

    • @ im right?
      I have a question for you? You have money invested in the israeli terror attacks against Palestine don’t you?
      Yes, you fucking do! You do ! That’s why all your word salad, brain fartery here ! You’re protecting your investments! You’ve invested in the israeli military industry ! You wanker! I saw that documentary by Aljazeera who infiltrated an israeli arms fair which openly admitted the money to be made from murdering Palestinians was immense. Fancy guns, fancy missiles, fancy drones making good coin from killing Palestinian farmers and their families ! Here it is !
      The Lab
      “A unique insight into the world of Israeli arms dealers selling weapons and experience around the world.”
      That’s you isn’t it? You and the freak gaby !? OMG ! That’s it !?
      Face to face? I bet you’d be a sniveling coward. A slippery weasel of a murderous scum bag and all for a dollar.

    • That Israel conducts targeted assassinations in contempt of the Rule of Law and due process is an open secret.
      B’tselem has calculated that between 2002 and May 2008, at least 387 Palestinians died as a result of Israeli targeted killings, of which 234 were the targets, and the rest collateral casualties.
      Wikipedia lists hundreds.
      You imply that you, IR, approve of the State carrying out such extra-judicial killings.
      Leaving aside the fact that this implication places you among those who identify with a totalitarian ideology that pays no heed to the principles that distinguish contemporary society from barbarism, these hundreds of (lets call them by their true name) murders, haven’t worked have they? The resistance is just as potent as ever. History shows that such behaviour actually strengthens resolve among oppressed people and it certainly seems to work that way in Palestine.

      What is it they say about insanity? Something like:
      “The definition of Madness is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”.

    As someone who is just learning about this. As a first impression, it seems that Israel is committing a similar genocide and has a similar mindset compared to the nazis who did the same to them.

    Abby is an amazing woman. Speaking the truth though means there’s a target on her back. FREE PALESTINE

    • I’d rather have the company of some honest rodents than soil myself by association with the benthic lowlifes who manifest on these threads trying..and disguise their sick antisemitism as concern for the welfare of vicious terrorists.

  5. These obscene statements from Netanyahu and Bennett only go to prove Israel is the scourge of the 20/21 centuries!

    History repeating itself 70+years on, only this time causing decades of grief and pain for Palestinians, the new victims of atrocities. No calling to arms to stop this brutal genocide this time though, which proves international Jewry are still calling the shots and holding absolute power!

  6. Given the mindset of existing Israeli politicians , backed up by several comments here, it is quite obvious that the only peaceful solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict will be either the Palestinians are all exterminated , or the Israelis are sent back to the Western countries where they have almost all originated from. The belligerence and constant encroachment on one side makes acceptance on the other impossible.
    Israel once seemed to hold the moral high ground. We were shearing when the 6 day war happened, It was presented on our radios and papers that Israel had reacted with amazing speed and efficiency to an unprovoked attack by Nassar’s Egypt. It is only in the last few years that I have come to learn that it was Israel that attacked Egypt in a surprise raid that destroyed the Egyptian air force on the ground.
    But it wasn’t Egypt, Syria of Jordan that Israel wanted to occupy, it was the remainder of Palestine that the Brits had not already given them, though it was never theirs to give.That seems to have always been the motivation for “last weeks war” as one of our shearers referred to it on Monday morning. Everyone then seemed to be pleased that Israel had prevailed. Such has the MSM propaganda machine ever functioned.
    The problem I have in feeling a moral superiority is that I can never really find a clear distinction between the creation of Israel and corresponding eviction of the native people who had lived there for thousands of years and Parihaka.
    The only distinction I can comfort myself with is that we did not try to drive our native people out of their land entirely and most of us now want very much to include them fully into our modern society.

    • Great post which reflects my own path to understanding this conflict. In ’67 we all cheered the gallant Israelis for we knew nothing of the History, and in our ignorance we did not recognise the conflict for what it was – a particularly brutal colonialist enterprise aimed at clearing the area of its indigenous population under the pretext of “redemption” according to a series of myths that had, through Christianity, taken root in the Western mind. We didn’t have the perspicacity or knowledge that Egypt had the bulk of its forces bogged down in Yemen at the time so was not even contemplating an attack against the Jewish State.
      But then we were also taught that the Arab nations attacked Israel on 15 May 1948 and that Palestinians then abandoned their homes and Israelis were therefore entitled to loot them and take them over.
      What we did not know was that up to 400,000 civilians had been driven at gunpoint from their homes before that War began and that was the major motivation for the move the Arab League made on May 15 1948, a move they explained to the U.N.
      …..which, in retrospect and on close reading, makes perfect sense. Sadly they did not have the military strength to prevail and enforce their belief that (here I am quoting the document):
      “They alone (the lawful inhabitants of Palestine), by virtue of their absolute sovereignty, have the right to provide their country with laws and governmental institutions. They alone should exercise the attributes
      of their independence, through their own means and without any kind of foreign interference, immediately after peace, security, and the rule of law have been restored to the country.”

  7. Yeah but what Id like to know is who supplied HAMAS with 1500 rockets to bomb Israel… who did that? Was it Russia or Iran? Who did that?
    To date , no one on this bogsite has the balls to answer that question.

    Why is that?

    To my way of thinking , no old people or young children should have to have limbs removed in bomb attacks for these sorts of sickos,… who is doing this?


    Who Are You

    • The financing and access of the Hamas rockets and componentry was discussed a few weeks ago. Apart from your wry accusation, what is your point?

      The stuff Hamas was firing off was very low tech backyard construction stuff using rudimentary techniques and propellants. Contrary to Israeli ‘sky is falling’ propaganda, the primary purpose was obviously to overwhelm the Iron Dome which is financed and endlessly resupplied at great cost by the US. The second objective was no doubt to induce panic among the likes of the Israelis who in the past, sat on the hills and cheered as the inhabitants of Gaza were being ‘bombed and shelled using illegal munitions, into the stone age’. The few Israelis who recently were directly killed by shrapnel could probably, in military parlance, be regarded as collateral damage.

      If financing ordinance is genuinely your issue wild katipo, where are your condemnations of the US providing $4.5 billion and counting this year and $3.8 billion annually, primarily to continue what is a slow and progressive theft of land and ethnic cleansing or even genocide of the rightful owners. This is of course not the sole avenue of Israel’s military funding. Also, do you support the concept of a two state solution as is constantly being irredeemably removed from Israel’s Zionist agenda? We should all know what the alternative looks like.

      Enjoyed revisiting The Who!

    • Your point is?

      The more important question is, when do you expect the Zionist thugs and killing machine will give up and implement the two state solution that was agreed to?

  8. It’s funny. I’ve heard that there are some Maori who align themselves with the Israeli Hegemony over the Palestinian people. They obviously have no understanding of Colonialism and Maori’s plight of the settlers of NZ.These two things do not go together, they’re not compatible!

  9. More green shoots:
    Were My Criticisms of Israel Fair?
    “Israeli officials did not wake up one bright morning to find thousands of rockets raining down,” notes Sari Bashi, an Israeli human rights lawyer. “Israeli security forces, led by a prime minister desperate to stay in power to avoid jail on corruption charges, created a provocation by using violence and the threat of violence against Palestinians in Jerusalem. They stormed a sensitive religious site, used excessive force against demonstrators and threatened to forcibly transfer Palestinian families from their homes as part of an official policy to ‘Judaize’ occupied East Jerusalem, which is a war crime.”
    … the New York Times no less:

    • Stop behaving like an ignorant F-wit Gaby. Many readers on this site will have witnessed the real-time history of the Six Day War. We saw it unfold through the unfiltered media of the time and without the diversion of subsequent Zionist rewrites.

  10. It is a pity this website allows any form of hasbara. I avoid all websites that pollute the comments with this time wasting and sick Talmudic hair splitting. They have their own bought and paid for ‘journalists’ and media.

      • Is it OK if Jews say it?

        Do Jews Dominate in American Media? And So What If We Do?

        “But the funny part is when any anti-Semite or anti-Israel person starts to spout stuff like, “The Jews control the media!” and “The Jews control Washington!”
        Suddenly we’re up in arms. We create huge campaigns to take these people down. We do what we can to put them out of work. We publish articles. We’ve created entire organizations that exist just to tell everyone that the Jews don’t control nothin’. No, we don’t control the media, we don’t have any more sway in DC than anyone else. No, no, no, we swear: We’re just like everybody else!
        Does anyone else (who’s not a bigot) see the irony of this?
        Let’s be honest with ourselves, here, fellow Jews. We do control the media.”
        – Manny Friedman in the Times of Israel.

  11. Gabriel Brun, a Jerusalem journalist who served as a signals sergeant- major in the 1967 Six-Day War, described yesterday how he saw fellow Israeli soldiers shoot dead five prisoners of war in Egyptian uniforms.

    His story added fuel to an escalating scandal sparked by a retired brigadier-general, who confessed to executing 49 Egyptian prisoners during the 1956 Suez war. …Michael Bar-Zohar, an author and former Labour MP who handled Dayan’s public relations after the 1967 war, said: “In every one of our wars, Israeli soldiers have killed PoWs. The high command did not want it, but it was tolerated up to a point. I know of only one case – in the 1982 Lebanon War – where an officer was court-martialled for killing a prisoner.”

      • “promoting other liars/malcontents/racists”
        I assume by “promoting” you mean quoting for I have not promoted anyone so far as I know. I have used quotes from mainly Zionist or at least Israeli sources to support my contentions. The quotes have originated with:
        Menachim Begin
        Moshe Dayan
        Two former Israeli Ambassadors to South Africa
        Israel Finklestein,
        Nicholas Kristof
        Eric Silver (of the Independent)

        Commondreams .org
        Benny Morris
        Norm Finklestein
        Ariella Oppenheimer
        …..and various Historical documents.
        To which of these do you refer? (Forget the first one, we could probably agree that he fits the bill)

  12. The advocates of human rights in Palestine have broken through. Hallelujah! Unless the opening is bolstered, however, its effect may be surprisingly limited. The denial, obfuscation, and special pleading that have long protected Israel from the truth may again cloud Americans’ perception of the moral disorder at the heart of Israel’s problem – apartheid.
    The work of South African lawyer, jurist, and scholar John Dugard provides such a bolster by clarifying that Israel’s form of apartheid, while quite different in its details, is at least as harsh as the apartheid regime was in South Africa and occupied Southwest Africa (now Namibia). Dugard’s qualifications to examine the issue are exceptional. He led the legal opposition to apartheid in its birthplace and has spent much of the past 20 years in close study of the Israeli-Palestinian situation. Most notably, he served as the U.N. Human Rights Council Special Rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian Territories from 2001 to 2008. During that time, he officially concluded that Israel’s occupation policies amounted to apartheid.

  13. Two former Israeli ambassadors to South Africa join tsunami of ‘apartheid’ accusations against Israel

    The news today is that two former Israeli ambassadors to South Africa have accused their country of practicing apartheid by creating bantustans for Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. “It’s apartheid, say Israeli ambassadors to South Africa,” Ilan Baruch and Alon Liel write at Groundup.

    This is yet another apartheid charge leveled by serious people in what Al Haq has said is the “mounting recognition” and “mainstreaming of the legal analysis of apartheid over the Palestinian people as a whole.”

    ….The former ambassadors say what Human Rights Watch said when it released its apartheid report in April. Israel has no intention of leaving the West Bank and East Jerusalem, after 54 years of occupation.
    “The occupation is not temporary, and there is not the political will in the Israeli government to bring about its end…. It is time for the world to recognize that what we saw in South Africa decades ago is happening in the occupied Palestinian territories too. And just as the world joined the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, it is time for the world to take decisive diplomatic action in our case as well and work towards building a future of equality, dignity, and security for Palestinians and Israelis alike.”

      • Content to rely on reader’s ability to distinguish the relative gravity of comment by, on one hand, two former Israeli Ambassadors to South Africa and, on the other, an American “wingnut” writer who (correct me if I am wrong) has never been to either South Africa or Israel.
        Keep digging with that ko Gabs.

          • Good gracious, I have loony fundamentalist Christian Zionists in my own family with as much cred as Kenneth Meshoe in these matters.
            Desmond Tutu is enough to nullify any such opinion from a “Bible as History” nutcase.
            You are taking a contrary position to:
            John Dugard, a South African professor of international law. whose main academic specialisations are in Roman-Dutch law, public international law, jurisprudence, human rights, criminal procedure and international criminal law.
            Then there are the two former Israeli ambassadors to South Africa, Jimmy Carter, Human Rights Watch, Yesh Din, B’tselem, the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) of South Africa, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia, the 2008 delegation of African National Congress (ANC) veterans who visited Israel and the Occupied Territories and said that in some respects it was worse than apartheid.
            Then there is Ehud Olmert and Yttzak Rabin, former Israeli Prime Ministers, who both warned that Israel would become an apartheid state if it continued on the path that, since they made these statements, it most definitely has – and then some.
            Eric Alterman who is Jewish and CUNY Distinguished Professor of English and Journalism at Brooklyn College says: “Still, thanks to HRW et al., the question is no longer whether the word “apartheid” applies to Israel but what if anything remotely realisable can be done about it.”

            I think you need a little more than the opinion of Kenneth Meshoe to prove my P.O.V. “pitiful”.

              • A fact-free hit job by CAMERA. Wow!
                “In the wake of Israel’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon, a new pro-Israel group has sprung up in Washington. Created specifically to keep the U.S. press in line, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) publishes a newsletter and has placed advertisements in The Christian Science Monitor and The New Republic in support of Israel’s West Bank settlement policies. At least in one case, it has assigned freelance reporters to dig into the personal lives of liberal journalists whose views deviate from the narrowest spectrum of pro-Israeli opinion.
                Among the luminaries listed on CAMERA’s letterhead are recent Pulitzer Prize winner Charles Krauthammer of The New Republic; Dr. William Perl, the former head of the Jewish Defense League* in Washington; and Michigan Senator Carl Levin.
                CAMERA, the A.D.L., AIPAC and the rest of the lobby don’t want fairness, but bias in their favor. And they are prepared to use McCarthyite tactics, as well as the power and money of pro-Israel PACs, to get whatever Israel wants. ”

    • The Great Gaby fighting the just war against a hord of extremely poor sandmunchers must make you feel big and tough and strong you fuck.

      • ‘Extremely poor sand munchers’…give me a break! Hamas alone get over $800 million a year in aid. They spend it on terrorist infrastructure and buying mansions in Doha for their leaders. The leaders also have state-of-the art war bunkers for their use only. It’s true: antisemitism really does make you stupid.

        • Nah mate, it is whatever you are on that makes one stupid. $800 million a year with your fanciful notions as to what it is spent on? Give us a break. How does that compare with $3.8 billion year on year plus supplements like this years $750 million + for killing Palestinians and demolishing their meagre means of existence – paid for as part of the $800 million of course.

          Since you repeatedly make claims of mansions in Doha, how about providing irrefutable evidence. Your word is insufficient assurance as you have consistently proved to be either ill-informed or a blatant liar.

          By the way, what do you think is going to happen to your corrupt hero Netanyahu as a result of his trial?

          • “Indeed, the extensive social and political work done by Hamas – and its reputation among Palestinians as averse to corruption – partly explain its defeat of the Fatah old guard in the 2006 legislative vote. Hamas funds schools, orphanages, mosques, healthcare clinics, soup kitchens, and sports leagues. “Approximately 90 percent of its work is in social, welfare, cultural, and educational activities,” writes the Israeli scholar Reuven Paz. The Palestinian Authority often fails to provide such services, and Hamas’s efforts in this area¿as well as a reputation for honesty, in contrast to the many Fatah officials accused of corruption¿help to explain the broad popularity it summoned…..”
