Cenk Uygur, Host of "The Young Turks" Network speaks out against the outrageous actions of Israel


[I feel like a cross between 1962 Richard Nixon [...you won't have Richard Nixon to kick around anymore because, Gentlemen, this is my last press conference) and a crack addict. Just could not stay away when an video this good was not posted on the DAILY PAUL.)

It all comes back to the Israel lobbyist...

It does not matter if majority of Americans and become libertarian. As long as they do not understand that the Israel lobbyist (thus our undivided support to Israel) is the root of the evil our country will never really "wake up"!

No Ron Paul supporter can actually claim themselves to fully understand the message of liberty (Ron Paul's message of liberty) if they still believe that Israel is the "poor and innocent" nation.

Wake the hell up! If the United Nation (without the approval of Americans) took California and Texas and give them to Mexico, you will be up in arms)

Here you have Israel, a state where MAJORITY of the people were NOT born there nor did their parents or grandparents. These people were from Europe (Hungary, Poland, Belarus, Lithuania, Russia, Ukraine, Romania etc) for goodness sake! They claim the land is their because it is said so by god?! Excuse moi but MAJORITY of the Israelis are non-practicing jews. Most of them are atheist!

Palestinian DID not kill millions of Jews, the White Christian Europeans did...for centuries. Fact. Period.

If someone shoots a .22LR

If someone shoots a .22LR into my house from the street I'm shooting my .45 back. Israel is perfectly right in protecting themselves and their citizens.

What if someone throws a rock at you?

Does that mean you can use a .22 in retaliation?


"Two injured protesters told other demonstrators that a soldier had fired at them from about 40 meters away while they were throwing stones at a jeep parked at an IDF outpost.

In June a 35-year-old Na'alin resident, Aqel Srur, was killed when a member of the Border Police fired a .22-caliber bullet at him."

Listen, they're not throwing

Listen, they're not throwing rocks. They're shooting rockets that can kill people. Disagree with my .22LR statement all you want, but they DO have a right to protect themselves. I don't get why everyone on here hates Israel. I don't think we should give them foreign aid, military support, etc. However, we shouldn't hate them and think they should just take being bombed just because they have nukes... how stupid.

You act like there is no

You act like there is no illegal occupation, no Jewish only colonization of the remaining 22 per cent of the Palestinian homeland, no daily humiliation of the Palestinian people, no second class treatment for Israeli Arabs. Geez Louise, some of you are so ignorant about this issue. If Israel did to us what they have done to the Palestinians, Israel would have a lot more to worry about than a few measly rockets that have killed a handful of people.

it may be because of

Israels actions against our own government and the fact that whether you like it or not, Israel kills a shit load of people and has a huge upper hand in terms of military support.

I try to remain indifferent about this conflict, but to say that Israel is some peace loving hippie is a farce. That state has no problem killing people, taking their land, spying on the US and sinking millions into steering our policies in their direction through AIPAC.

This doesnt make me unsympathetic for Israel. I kinda compare it to Paul standing up to Rudy in 07. Blowback is a bitch. Jussayin.

P.S. I really dont give a flying shit about Israel, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan or any other country that doesnt have a pacific and atlantic ocean around it. Let these religious zealots continue to fight each other. They have been doing it since the dawn of time. I want my government to protect my rights and promote peace.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

F15 vs .22LR? Armored tanks vs .22LR? Atomic bomb vs .22LR?

Excuse me, but I think you are ignorant of the situation in Palestine.

How can you compare the world's top 5 military armed forces that have NUKES with a nation where majority of their weapons are rocks, old russian AK47 and home made bombs?!

Would you think it is fair? Blimey!

ps: Israel is THE ONLY nation in the ENTIRE middle east that has NUKES. Wake up.

They're not using nukes. Why

They're not using nukes. Why even bring that up? They're the ONLY nation in the ENTIRE middle east with NUKES not to be using NUKES. Wake up.

You're a dumbass

You're comparing a .22 LR round to 122mm Katusha rockets launched at suburbs? You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. And another hint, "homemade" bombs are just as deadly as real bombs. IEDs are the number one killer, additionally the bomb that destroyed th federal building in OKC was a "homemade" bomb.

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."


pakastan does not have nukes

Just as long as you shoot back at the person who fired the .22LR

Not everyone walking along the street.

I understand your point, but

I understand your point, but Israel isn't just shooting blindly. They're shooting at targets. The one reason that I think war is acceptable is when someone attacks you. That is the case here, isn't it? Once you pass that mark it's an unfortunate reality that people will die. That doesn't make Israel the bad guys in this case. It makes the people that starting shooting rockets at them the bad guys.

True, Israel is shooting at

specific targets. Hamas is shooting blindly, and I may add, at civilians.

You dont get it do you?

OK. Since we are all so called libertarians here. Let me give you a damn good example.

1) Why did John Adams, George Washington, Hamilton etc took up arms and started WAR on the land of Great Britain?

What did you say? Stamp tax? Just because of a "stupid" tax these people went all nuts?

Geez.. it is not like their parents were killed by English soldiers (like how the Israelis are doing). None of John Adams children were murdered by the English (like the Israelis did and are doing now to Palestinian freedom fighters). George Washington was not arrested and brought to England while his wife is raped by English soldier (like how the Israelis soldier are doing).

"The one reason that I think war is acceptable is when someone attacks you""

Stamp tax?! Pppffttt What a "bunch of rednecks warmonger" those founding fathers were.

1) No, it was not just the stamp tax.

2) Pick different signers of the Declaration of Independence, and you will find that they lost family members to the Brits.

3) The Brits would have liked nothing better than to have captured Washington and taken him to London for trial. If you think no Brit would have done unspeakable things to Martha if he could have, you are naive.

There is a big flaw with your

There is a big flaw with your statement. Britain was here, in the Colonies, forcing their will upon the people here. Israel was shot at first... they weren't in the Gaza forcing their will upon anyone. I'm not saying that Israel is completely innocent of everything. That's another discussion. In this instance though, they did not start the fighting. If you're going to be mad about a fight, blame the guy that started it.

Think you need to re-watch the video.

There has been plenty of innocent killings... uh hem... collateral damage so far....

Our continuing support of Israel is a disgrace to all Americans

Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations — entangling alliances with none." ~ Thomas Jefferson

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

SteveMT's picture

Uygur is 100% right about this issue.

He overlaps with Ron Paul on this war issue. Good. The problem is that he's not consistent. Cenk likes the department of education and the other departments as well. Overall, he can only support Ron Paul 50%.


Could any of the authors of the racist commemts below explain

the meaning of the word "Zionist" and the history of the Zionist movement? I mean the true history, not the history according to Alex Jones, Glenn Beck, or Newt Gingrich. Thanks.

It is surprising to see on the DP so many racist, completely influenced by propaganda OPINIONS. Usually that's not the case and it almost feels like a troll attack!

Zionism is not a race, last time I checked it is a political ideology.
A dangerous one at that.

Youtube? Seriously?

Last time I checked Youtube had thousands of proofs for UFOs, aliens and the secret society boogieman and government spies under our beds. Sorry, not a credible source.

In addition to this, most of these are opinions, not facts.

Can you tell me more about the establishment of the Zionist movement in the 19th century, the involvement of the local Jews in then Ottoman empire, how the change of the name of the land to Palestine by the British in the early 20th century (which was NEVER used before to call this land) influenced the movement, and what happened in the early 20th century?

Now don't come back at me with YouTube videos. Just spell out FACTS.

The ancient Romans called it

The ancient Romans called it Palestine for goodness sake !

you should do the leg work yourself

Well, I've seen a lot of Ron Paul videos posted on YouTube.
Should I discount Ron Paul because of this?

You must WATCH and LISTEN to these videos... you will learn from investigators presenting their research on Zionism.

Plus, you should do the leg work yourself, if you are REALLY keen to learn the truth about zionsim. Just saying....

My question is

if Turkey gets involved in support of the Palestinians will the USA support it's ally by treaty, Turkey, or will our government support Israel?

Picking sides in this conflict is truly unAmerican.

None of these country's have Constitutions to separate church and state and so nothing is worth supporting but what's left of this Republic!

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

so let me get this straight

During world war 2, Nazi Germans, (bankrolled mostly by Zionist house of Rothschild, Bush family crime cartel and multi-national corporations), killed a lot of Communists and threw a whole lot of people into concentration work camps.

During the subsequent war trials, the Zionists promulgated the HolaHoax myth about death camps just for Jews, which then provided a warped justification for European Jews to invade the middle-east, steal land and murder Palestinians.

Hmmmm.. strange, horrid, but true.

View video interviews of young Israeli Jews by Max Blumenthal. Hard to describe Israeli youths as anything other than spoilt, racist, traumatized by HolaHoax mythology and completely unprepared to integrate into a middle-eastern milieu.

On one hand they call Obama a Sambo Nigg** and then demand Americans send money to support Israeli mass murder of Palestinians and theft of Palestinian lands and homes.

There are thousands and thousands of Jews spread across the middle-east, pretty much integrated into the countries wherein they dwell.

The problem is the Zionists.

Who is "retaliating"?

Zionist racists kill, hurt and demean Palestinians daily, but when crappy home-made rockets get sent in response, the Palestinians "started it". This won't stop until the Zionists completely exterminate all the Palestinians (because "god gave that land to the Jews") or we stop funding the evil Zionists when we go broke.
I hope the Zionists don't succeed in their plan to exterminate the Palestinians. These people are the worst type of evil.

I don't like this young turk

I don't like this young turk guy. He is a liberal/socialist. I just wish the palastinians would not launch attacks. Let the Isrealis do it. make them to look like the bad guys.
