According to Biblical tradition, the united Kingdom of Israel was a kingdom that existed in the Land of Israel, a period referred to by scholars as the United Monarchy. Biblical historians date the kingdom from c. 1020 BCE to c. 930 BCE, though there are differences of opinion as to exact dates.

According to U.S. history books the native americans lived in the U.S. before we did.. I guess we should give the entire country back.

I'm not denying that Israel existed in ancient times, a lot of history and time has passed since then.

Now you're talking! I'm all for that! What time are y'all going to start packing?

After all, fair IS fair. If you want to give Israel to the Palestinians who are actually Jordanians, the least you could do is have the courage of your convictions and give America back to us!

I'm sorry - I know I said I was going to go back to ignoring you, but you're just handing me material that's too easy to work with. the hypocrisy is so thick you couldn't cut it with a chainsaw...

I'll try to restrain myself...

I wonder how many of these viciously insane right wing Americans who quickly support Israel's 'right' to Palestine would be so quick to move their fat arses out of America and give it back to the Indigenous people.

My guess: 0

Aren't you British?

As I recall, you fellas had a hand in taking the Land away from us to begin with...

Say... didn't y'all have something to do with the formation of modern Israel, too?

When you guys light a fire, you don't ever stop fanning it, do you?

So they never occupied the Consulate like the title says, they simply entered the lobby of the building where the consulate is on the 10th? floor....

I am as sure some of the OWS protesters are paid, or have some secret agenda, just around as much as I care if that is the case. The reason for that being is that good or bad intentions, a sizable amount of people are trying to make quite a bit of noise for all kinds of reasons, regardless of whatever group or whoever is behind any part of the movement.

Although yes there are individual groups making a presence within the OWS movement, Where is 11 Wall Street, New York, NY in Massachusetts exactly? Yet there are so many pages on even this thread that are filled with people speaking of the movement as a single entity without taking into account the initial 99% vs. the 1% argument. I don't understand the confusion.

OWS is more like a proper excuse for quite a few to untuck their tails and start to bark, like if 15 of my closest friends decided to up and do a sit in somewhere in seattle, all that need be said is OWS and bam, its all over ATS and the news.

I love OWS for the simple fact that mass amounts of middle, lower, and terrible poverty level folk are coming together, albeit there is no specific goal other than perhaps standard of living?? I do not know.

However, is it not amazing that this is happening by so many for so many reasons right now? Normally protests are specific and this is very different. People from everywhere, for every reason standing up to bitch at the same time... Individuals themselves are showing up to OWS to protest their very own issue. There is no union picket line that you can't walk across without repercussion, and no central control of what each individual or group thinks or does. And that is in my opinion, the magic of it. And it is hard for me to believe how many people can't understand that. Like showing a picture of the (laughable) communist party at OWS in wherever, is the same as Oakland OWS...

OWS is grand, and it's a great example of another American ingenuity, this time in protesting (yeah!).

Death to Israel government

Power to the REAL Israel people

Palestinians and Israelites

Israelites ( not to be confused with the original Israelites ) but those who occupy it

antisemitic accusation in 3...2...1

Bunch of friggin' hypocrites if you ask me.

They had more important lines to stand in, like waiting on the newest iPhone.

OWS needs to pick a stance. Seriously. Fighting a war on a hundred different fronts means one is stupid or insane. If they're going to be taken seriously, they need to pick a true cause and stick with it. But this running from one fire to the next fanning the flames is not going to get them anywhere.

Wait...maybe they should continue.

You really do have a narrow-minded view of the world.

Many are sick and tired of the nation of Israel using self-defense as an excuse to completely destroy the Palestinians using apartheid and repressive tactics. In other words, one Israeli is hit with a rock and one Palestinian is hit by a rocket. Do you see how one-sided this conflict really is?

quoted for truth. most americans don't KNOW what happens in israel/palestine at all ,kudos to these protesters for being informed. israel gets billions of dollars of american taxpayers money every year, and has done so for decades. I wonder, if you're out of work, or lost your house, how do you feel about that? israel takes our money, then spits in our face in countless ways. They're trying to straight-up exterminate the palestinians, and they use some of our money to fund that effort..and so many americans can't figure out why the arab world has a bone to pick with us..

Here's the deal folks.

OWS Inc. is a giant corporation. It is made up of shareholders like ACORN, SEIU, DNC, Socialist groups, Communist groups. Using existing tax loopholes, they make money by occupying certain events and issues.

But they have a problem.

They are making too much money. (those greedy greed-heads!)

So they have had to diversify into different divisions to spread the cash around "at a loss" to make their books balance.

Is just the first of many "losing" ventures.

OWS-The Musical
Just like the Broadway show, "RENT" only it'll be about "no rent".

OWS-Health Clinics
Come in for rape exams. (the 4th time is free!)

OWS-Cartoon Show
About two wacky kids and their talking poop bucket, named "Larry". They solve ghostly mysteries and fight their evil nemesis, "Old Man Jenkins"

So you see, OWS, Inc. is more than about Wall Street. It's more than about Israel. It's more than about corporations.

It's about making money.

Ooook.. Can anyone explain to me why OWS, Operation Wall Street - dealing with corporate greed, feels that occuping the ISraeli embassy is in line with their stated goals?

As far as the comment about PressTV, save it. They are the offical mouth piece of the Iranian Government andhave a bad habbit of ommitting information or just out right lieing when it comes to the US / Israel.

The OWS movement has gone off the deepend and is turn ing more and more into the hypocritical protestors / reioters that show for the G-20 meetings.

I lso enjoy the double standard they show by demanding laws be followed and their rights respected while in the same breath advocate violence towards the police and anyone else who doesnt agree with their view point. These people remind me of the other groups from back in the day who went around wearing the Che Guevara shirts. People should really know the background of the groups they are going to support.

Yup - A proud day for OWS. To date they have pulled off a political first. They have managed to bring Ne Nazis, the Communist party and the Theocracy of Iran all under the same banner.

Yup..... Alfred Nobel would be proud....

The reason why they would occupy the Israeli consulate is a simple one. The billions we send them every year is nothing but corporate welfare for our military machine. So a stance against the "aid" we give Israel is a stance against wall street. The protestors should just build a wall around the consulate make them feel at home.

I keep seeing this common reasoning, "I can't support Occupy, unless...". Okay, but, since when does not supporting something mean constant regurgitation of slanted media? Of which, almost every single bit of has been dispelled in other threads.

How dare some of the more informed Americans participate in a protest against something as important as the US/Israeli relationship!

They didn't have a permit!

I hope my sarcasm was obvious.

Some of you claim to be free but it's illegal to collect rain water, purchase whole milk, you need a permit to do damned well everything, and the by-law officers run around as judge and jury and you wonder why people are pissed.

Land of the Free?

posted on Nov, 7 2011 @ 06:47 AM
Why, US citizens should run from that horrible tyrant ruled country if they can't, god forbid, collect rain water!
You should consider moving to a better, beautiful, advanced place on earth like Iran, Saudi Arabia or Egypt where you will be able to collect rain water but in compensation you'll get slaughtered upon demonstrating against your government.

And you won't have those pesky Zionists in your government! Only religious zealots that will be happy to sign your execution after you cheat your wife, hug your homosexual partner in the street, drink alcohol, walk around not wearing weird ninja outfits (if you're girls) - or you know, that small thing of going against Islam.

Nothing like a theocracy to make the population feel free.

On-topic now:
I really applaud you if you truly believe sitting around singing songs on the floor helps anyone push forward any kind of agenda. You are really easy to satisfy.

Not MOB rule.

No! That's what all the rest of us would like them to do. They have covered this base with a very short phrase at the end of their initial (and I might add) only official statement.

These grievances are not all-inclusive.

What does OWS have to do with Israel?

Israel starts wars that Americans are forced to fight and then claim self defence. Israel takes our money in the name of aid while Americans live on the street. Israel bribes our elected officials to do God knows what in the name of Israel instead of America. Of course all of this is ignored by the ignorant as they scream Nazi.

The definition of an ally is to combine or unite a resource or commodity with (another) for mutual benefit. I see no mutual benefit for Americans in this relationship with Israel. With that said, we may now call Israel exactly what it really is. A parasite.

It's this I can't stand. Where do you see the human race in 3,000 years? Do you even think about the future of humanity? The ONLY way to create a peaceful and stable human civilization with any goal towards long-term preservation is under a single government (not broken feudal nation-states bent on war) with one language (so that NOBODY is misinterpreted) and with no desire for useless goods. It's a long way away, and with ideas of capitalism it will take much longer. Why is life before death always about owning things? The entire universe is out there for us to explore. The sky calls to us, if we do not destroy ourselves we will one day venture to the stars.

You do not understand the movement. There is a unified agenda. There are also respected and honored sub agendas. Here is the mission ststement:

"As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.

As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments.

We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.

They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.

They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.

They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.

They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.

They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless nonhuman animals, and actively hide these practices.

They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions.

They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.

They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’ healthcare and pay.

They have influenced the courts to achieve the same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.

They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.

They have sold our privacy as a commodity.

They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press.

They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.

They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce.

They have donated large sums of money to politicians supposed to be regulating them. They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.

They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantive profit.

They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.

They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.

They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.

They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad. They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.

They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts. *

To the people of the world,

We, the New York City General Assembly occupying Wall Street in Liberty Square, urge you to assert your power.

Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.

To all communities that take action and form groups in the spirit of direct democracy, we offer support, documentation, and all of the resources at our disposal.

Join us and make your voices heard!"

They are growing and Occupying over 1000 cities so far. I attended an activist event this weekend and spoke to musicians that are attending OWS events across the nation. There is a sense of unity and direction, the media is not reporting this correctly. The movement is healthy and thriving. Quakers are giving seminars of consensus democracy and they ahve adopted a 90-10 model that is suprisingly efficient.

Once you free yourself from the false left-right paradigm and see the world in terms of a nasty plutocracy run by corporate "persons" you will begin to see what the movemenet is all aboput and begin to understand the absolute focus and intention of OWS.

I agree that we do need a one world single Government, but not one under the rule of corrupt politicians, greedy bankers/business men, religious fanatics that truly believe that they are the 'chosen people', or spoiled brats born with a silver spoon in their mouth. The average person does not want war or bloodshed. The average person just wants to be able to support their family and EARN (yes i said earn) a decent wage. The ability to earn a decent wage in this world has been taken away from the average person while the elite throw job applications to dead end jobs upon them.

It is the elite of this world that have been dragging humanity through hell since the existence of man and it is the elite of this world that need to be abolished. No I dont mean that millionaire down the street trying to keep his business running. I mean the billionaires paying off our elected officials so that he doesnt have to pay a dime in taxes. Or the scum that think they own the news in this world and think that they have the right to brainwash the population into believing only what they think is right. The elite class needs to be removed from society and the only way to do this is to somehow remove the need for currency.

How do we do this? Honestly, I dont know. But the fact is its always been the haves versus the have nots. It has been this way since the dawn of man. If you work hard in this country you should be able to live a decent life and right now the average man simply does not have that opportunity anymore. You're either in debt to credit card companies because you cant afford to live or you have so much student debt from the useless education you purchased that you cant even see straight. And then what? We either work for some dead end job that wont even keep the lights on or we sit on welfare until the bank comes to take our house. Thats all we have to look forward to and if that isnt considered slavery without a whip, then I dont know what is.

Our destiny should have been the stars... 50 years ago. But as always its the same scum holding back everyone else. Russia plans to send a manned space craft to the moon of Mars sometime this or next year. What is America doing? Fighting wars, locking people up for smoking a plant, sexually assaulted its citizens, and kissing the backside of Israel. So much for the great space race. So much for 'made in America'. And so much for education. So much for everything that we used to lead the world in.
