  • “Airbnb slammed for offering rooms with a view in Jewish settlements”

    Posted by Jonathan on February 2nd, 2016 (All posts by )

    Airbnb slammed“. So passive. Who slammed them? Palestinians engaged in lawfare and mediafare against Israel. An accurate headline would be, “Palestinians open new front in boycott campaign against Israel”.

    The Palestinian Authority says offering vacation rental properties in Jewish homes in the ­occupied West Bank, through U.S.-based sites such as Airbnb, Booking.com and TripAdvisor, ­violates international law.

    No word on whether apartment owners in Mecca are using Airbnb to rent to Jews and Christians.

      International law applies to everyone the arabs and left want it applied to, in any way they want it applied, but no law ever applies to or constrains them.

    2. Jonathan Says:

      Actually, Israel legally occupies the territories it captured in 1967, because it captured them in a defensive war. According to international law, these territories are considered disputed until Israel reaches a final settlement with the countries that attacked her.

      These points need to be reiterated frequently because the big lie that Israel illegally occupies Judea and Samaria has been repeated so often that it’s become conventional wisdom.

      They are repeated endlessly. The boycott of Israel is ongoing and this will only harden those inclined to join it. I don’t see any up, the other way.

    4. Jonathan Says:

      Yes, the boycott of Israel is the wave of the future, as fascism used to be.

      How does it feel to be on the same side as lies and bigotry, chump?

      You have it backwards. Still the Truth is a Lie, and Orwell nailed it.

      To answer your question: Just fine.

      I recently discovered a web page dedicated to tracking rats:

      It will be interesting to see what the future holds for this lot. The tuition and grant money got to run out sooner or later.
