    It's that 'evangelical tinge' that bothers me -- a Christian moral superiority, a patronizing attitude -- which has a very influential role in US politics. But we look the other way and don't ask too many questions, either.

    But thanks for being candid.

    Making the announcement while wearing what bears a strong resemblance to an Iron Cross? Classy.

    The Iron Cross wasn't even used by Nazis, it was modified with a Swastika in the middle. In general the idea that PewDiePie is a Nazi is dumb and I'd encourage you to watch a few of his streams to get a better feel for the guy.

    The iron cross—and symbols based on it—are extremely popular symbol among white supremacists and xenophobic alt-right tryhards. The dumbass is pandering to precisely that crowd of halfwits.

    I don't trust New York magazine reporting, but if accurate it sounds like Giuliani might have severe jetlag, a drinking problem or both.

    That's not the problem. His remarks about Soros are in keeping with his other public statements about the man, as well as with his actions in eg. Ukraine. Giuliani isn't saying that he's Jewish; he's pushing a gross conspiracy theory about George Soros that is shockingly popular among the core Trumpist base—and he's doing so by using a borderline antisemitic argument that a person's Jewishness is determined by whether they support or oppose specific policies of or pertaining to the state of Israel.

    What makes it insane is a non-Jew is taking a "no true Scottsman" line against a Jewish person. But I find it troubling how criticizing George Soros and/or the organizations he funds has somehow become impossible without being accused of anti-Semitism.

    Surely a reasonable starting point would be if there was some agreement that the Koch/Soros criticism has gone too far, and then work backwards from there.

    Jew = Israeli right is pretty antisemitic.

    True but there are variations. Because simply being Jewish shouldn't imply loyalty to Israel *however* if someone is relentlessly anti-Israel and silent on countries like Iran, Russia, China, North Korea and Syria it is probably a sign of antisemitism.

    It is almost certainly a symptom of being an aggressively anti-American statist. The antisemitism is equally likely to stem from anti-Americanism as vice versa. The only way you think it's worthwhile to defend North Korea is if you reject literally everything that characterizes a decent society; the people who do that do so because they hate the US - and NK is an enemy of the US.

    Who let this bozo anywhere near the discussion table?

    I don't know why Kushner ever thought he would have credibility here. Then again, I wonder if the Palestinians have noticed that every deal they reject is followed 5-10 years later by a deal that is worse than the last one they rejected.

    The physical evidence is pretty damning. Israel is rapidly adopting the norms of its neighbors.

    RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — One of the men was hospitalized with kidney failure and 11 broken ribs. Another was nearly unrecognizable to his wife when he was wheeled into a courtroom. A third was stitched up after being attacked by a security dog...

    Loki, I hate to say it but this is not new. Shabak has long used torture and torture-adjacent tactics in their interrogations of terrorists.

    Nationalists gonna hire nationalists, especially when new-wave socialists claim all nationalism is inherently bigoted.

    Right Dread, they were forced to become partisan and far-right because of the mean libs. Kind of how people voted for Trump because they were called mean names.

    Not that I'd ever rule Netanyahu out, but it doesn't look good for him. Didn't think Lieberman would ever work together with the Arab parties.

    Eh, I'm not convinced he's out. Gantz might be angling for a unity government because of the covid-19 crisis, and he might be willing to let Netanyahu continue leading Likud to avoid looking like he's playing politics in the middle of a crisis after 3 (!) sets of elections. A non-unity government including Lieberman and the Joint List is more or less doomed from the start; in fact, it's likely they'll be a minority government that just gets supply votes supported by the Joint List. It's a mess. I really just wish Netanyahu had a sense of historical necessity and stepped down to let someone else lead Likud - then it would be a simple matter to form a unity government.

    Netanyahu found a solution to losing an election: don't allow the incoming legislature to meet.
