    Hamas throws tons of missles at Israel. Hamas targets ANYTHING that moves! Israel targets Hamas’ known leader’s hideouts that have surrounded themselves with women and children. Mainstream Media decries Israel for defending itself and killing children in the process…….just WHEN did the world get so BLASTED upside down and BACKWARDS???

    Fatah was more “cooperative”, and got, well, nothing. This goes back millennia, just like most homicidal societies, on BOTH sides. Throw in the evangelicals that only see the “conversion” to Jesus, or horrible deaths of all Jews, and well, that little “holocaust thing” wasn’t such a big deal?


    If the “religious” actually stopped killing each other over their religious differences, 90% of all wars would stop. If people would stop stealing other people’s land, based on “religious claims” to ownership, another 8% would stop.


    Of course if wars weren’t so profitable?


    I prefer a “culture” that accepts others, even if they don’t agree with them, and sees wars, hatred, and greed, as all evil, but sadly, very “human”. It is in overcoming the “human” weaknesses, and seeking betterment for oneself, a better path. While some mistake what they think of as “karma”, making jest of it, because it doesn’t match their “faith”, they are the least likely to improve themselves, just because it’s the right thing to do.

    Well written and accurate but it will go right over the heads of the anti-semites writing here. There should be no country of Israel on this earth and until that happens all is fair. Of course there was no such word as Palestinians until recent history but don’t let the facts interfere with their bigotry.

    Yet, the nation of Israel goes back THOUSANDS of years! Your point is….?

    Very very recent history. 20th Century rather than BCE. I know it is difficult to believe but the world didn’t start the day you were born. It is a made up name designed to take pressure off of Muslim leaders who keep their people in poverty and ignorance and need to find something else to unite the masses besides hatred of their own leaders.
    And yes, those who are terrorizing to totally eliminate the entire country of Israel are “anti-semites” and that remains the written goal of leaders, countries and millions of muslims.

    first of all anti-semitism is an interesting word in this context. arabs and jews are both semetic people. that’s why this conflict is so horrific – it’s a family feud. Throughout millenium the jews have been persecuted, enslaved, and exterminated. I don’t know why, it just seems like a popular thing to do. It’s one of the lessons of passover – that and what constitutes freedom. for those of you who would emasculate israel, you, in reality, are finishing the job hitler started. If israel laid down her arms there would be no israel the next day. The holocaust survivors that founded her know that and it in their dna. If the palestinians laid down their arms, there would be peace.

    ‘Of course there was no such word as Palestinians until recent history’
    And does that in any way diminish the legitimacy of Palestinian nationalism? Does it negate the fact that they are the ones who are now largely displaced and without a sovereign country of their own?

    You bring up anti-Semitism, and you may be partially correct, some of Israel’s critics do so from a prejudiced standpoint, but I would also like to bring up anti-Arabism or Islamophobia of those who criticise or denigrate the aspirations of Palestinians.
    But hey, “don’t let the facts interfere with their bigotry.”

    @omQ Release the Desaparecidos

    When the mandate was set almost 100 years ago the area was split in half. Israel said OK and the palestinians said no. They started and lost a war in 1948 to gain all the territory. Similarly they started a war in in 1967 and lost. Even after 2 major victories Israel is offering to give "palestinians " 90% of what they have asked for. That too has been rejected. They don’t want just peace or land, they want everything. T’aint going to happen.

    so what do all you anti-israel people think. the cease fire is agreed to and the palestinians lob another 24 missles into israel. israel does not respond, yet…….

    it must be israels fault, right?

    ‘and the palestinians said no.’
    Correct, foreign powers were deciding their fate, yet again. It’s understandable that they would object to their lands being partitioned off. Wait, I forgot, they were not their own masters, why consult them or take into account their protests.

    ‘They started and lost a war in 1948 to gain all the territory.’
    They started? Surely you jest. [nah, I know you’re not; you’re just repeating a simplified narrative over & over with the aim it becomes the accepted story] Foreign powers were deciding their fate, 3rd parties were interfering and they started it? Right, blame the victim. Gain all the territory? Or maintain their territory?
    I note how you place in quotes Palestinians, as if this is a title that should be questioned or does not deserve recognition. You belittle & denigrate the designation. You diminish their identity. Rob them of that small dignity. Does this narrative sound familiar? Who wants to push whom into the sea? Who wants whom wiped off the map?
    Shall I start quoting what many Israeli politicians and leaders were saying just this last week? It is up there with the anti-Semitic quotes we often hear.
    Your words: "“don’t let the facts interfere with their bigotry.”
    Who is being bigoted here?

    ’ Similarly they started a war in in 1967 and lost.‘
    The Six Day War proper was initiated by the Israelis. Of course you might reply they were pre-empting or replying to provocations; as if there hadn’t been skirmishes & provocations by all parties in the preceding months, even years.
    “…and lost”
    I know, why don’t they just roll over and just accept they have lost their land, bloody fools. The spoils of war & all that.
    But they haven’t and they keep protesting the occupation. Over 60 years and they won’t give it up. Keep denigrating their claims by saying it is a fait accompli and perhaps they might just accept it.

    ‘They don’t want just peace or land, they want everything.’
    I know! Not only everything but more, like olive groves in the West Bank, more fertile lands for their illegal settlements in the West Bank, monopoly over the water supplies and aquifers, tch.

    Do you also want to return Manhattan to the Indians from whom we stole it? You sound like Don Quixote fighting windmills. 90% of the West bank is there for the people who call themselves “Palestinians” but have never probably ever even set foot there. 10% will never ever ever be returned. The wall separates the 2 different areas. They can keep dying and living under gaza government induced poverty or say enough is enough, I will take 90% of what I asked for and go on with their lives.

    ‘Do you also want to return Manhattan to the Indians from whom we stole it?‘
    And by equating it with the Manhatten purchase, there’s your admission that the lands taken from the Palestinians were stolen.
    ‘90% of the West bank is there for the people who call themselves “Palestinians” but have never probably ever even set foot there.’
    What nonsense, a nonsensical claim aimed at delegitamatising their claim by an extremely offensive declaration.Tell me, seeing as you introduced this “yard-stick”, today, how many Israelis were born in Israel; and how many were born in what became Israel in 1948, in 1948?
    If you dismiss Palestinians’ claim to their homeland because “they weren’t born there”, how would you justify the same for foreign-born Israelis?

    Because the Israelis actually live there now. The vast majority of Palestinians have literally never once in their entire lives ever been in the country of Israel. Their great grandfathers started and lost 2 wars and now these Gaza/west bank citizens realize it would be far nicer to live in a developed country so they want to remove all the Israelis who built the country and get free land. Spend that energy and money and build up Gaza instead of rioting, terrorism and lunacy.
