2001-10-06 09:02:13 PM  
The last paragraph in the report says it ALL!!!!!
2001-10-06 09:02:37 PM  
Those UNGRATEFULL turds!! After everything that we did for them!
2001-10-06 09:05:01 PM  
Well thats no way to be talk'n to your friends.
2001-10-06 09:07:57 PM  
What, this Ariel Sharon? []
2001-10-06 09:09:01 PM  
Hey, this may be a win-win situation for us. Arabs hate us because we support the israelis. We might be able to nip more terrorist attacks in the bud if we just turn our back on the israelis.

Either way, end our support for them, leave their nuts hanging out there and see what the arabs do to them.
2001-10-06 09:11:13 PM  

the headline is just plain incorrect. the correct version would have been 'israeli prime minister likens Americans to neville chamberlain'. The hitler in question would be more like, say, bin laden.

the comments were still asinine though. not to mention this is like 3 day old news.

just burns me up because I never get a posted story. got to work on my headline skillz. it's not the article that has to be good, it's the headline.

2001-10-06 09:13:13 PM  

Waaaaaaaahhhhhhhh Waaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh Somebody call the Wahhhmmbulance.

If all you are going to do is biatch about your life, or fark, or your interpretation of the headline.. just shut up and save us the time. Mmmkay?

"The problem with the analogy is that it is the Palestinians, not the Israelis, who are the modern Czechs. "

Nice little wrap up there at the end.

Fb-: lemme guess, you posted the story.
2001-10-06 09:23:00 PM  
Holy shiat, that was one of the most biased pieces of reporting i've ever read... really!
2001-10-06 09:24:21 PM  

No.. I submitted the ' ventures into the made-to-order hardcore porn tape business' article. Didn't make it.
2001-10-06 09:26:24 PM  
Isreal is the one invading a smaller country, so how does that make them like the chechs?
2001-10-06 09:27:06 PM  
Our support of Israel makes no sense.
2001-10-06 09:29:21 PM  
Sadly, the new "war on terror" will be Israel's biggest boon so far. They have so much support for their own Zionist holy war that their leaders can say and do as they please. I feel sorry for both the Israeli and Palestinian citizens in the regions that are ruled by madmen like Sharon.
2001-10-06 09:31:02 PM  

well, I sit corrected. now that's a good story. actually I checked out the site too, it's more retarded than I thought. Now that's worth whining about.

Here's the story I was whining about not getting posted:

2001-10-06 09:31:54 PM  
Don't you people know what a </farking> analogy is?
2001-10-06 09:32:50 PM  
well they're right.
2001-10-06 09:32:51 PM  
The reason we support Israel is because we created the country for them after WWII. We felt sorry for not doing anything about the concentration camps until it was almost too late, so we tried to make a haven for them... in the middle of the Muslim holy land. I'm not saying I agree with this, it's just the way things happened.
2001-10-06 09:35:00 PM  
Yeah.. it' the study of asses right?
2001-10-06 09:36:06 PM  
Oh, so you're all mad at Israel because we give them tons of financial and military aid, but you don't mind when the people of say [Jordan] (insert most any middle eastern nation) burn American flags, and shout "Death to Americans", etc.!?!?!?! Where the fark are your priorites? Israel - Sharon disses American forign policy
Other middle east countires - The people themselves pray for the destruction of American... you decide
2001-10-06 09:36:20 PM  
I noticed that the article was a bit dated.
seems that no other news agency, even a number of the more anti-isreali ones are covering this... It seems odd that only the Guardian seems to have heard about and nobody else did.
2001-10-06 09:37:07 PM  
That whole region is one big ball o`hate.
I hate to say it but they need a massive war to show them how utterly futile and devastating it really is when bordering countries act like bullying kids to each other.
2001-10-06 09:39:28 PM  
No those comments were front page news on only days ago. then the bush administration took offense calling the comments 'unacceptable'. Then colin powell called sharon to smooth everything over supposedly.
2001-10-06 09:41:36 PM  
Code_Archeologist, hunh? It was covered at the time, as well as the Bush administration slaping Sharon down, and Sharon mumbling "gee, that's not what I meant to say".
2001-10-06 09:50:15 PM  
The vast majority of religions are "big ol' balls of hate."
2001-10-06 09:56:29 PM  
Thanks Buckshot. I was just thinking to myself about how much friction the different religions of the world have caused mankind. It's all because of diffent beliefs in supernatural crap that contradicts itself.
2001-10-06 10:02:20 PM  
Neca eos omnes. Deus suos agnoset


"Kill them all. God will know His own."
2001-10-06 10:03:38 PM  
For the record, The PM of Israel apologized for this, calling it a "misunderstanding'.
2001-10-06 10:04:09 PM  
Hitler? hmmmmmm....

2001-10-06 10:04:14 PM  
But religion isn't about hate anymore.. it's about loving.

And sometimes you need to kill/persecute all the gays, jews, abortionists, atheists, and pagans because you love them.
2001-10-06 10:09:24 PM  
2001-10-06 10:09:28 PM  
Buckshot, Justamovie

First off, every human civilization began with some type of 'supernatural crap.' Historically, you can't have humans without religion. Its not like smallpox, there's no cure because its not an infection. Feel free to opt-out (agnostic here), but assuming that humankind could have ever been removed from religion shows a real lack of critical thinking.

Religion per se is not hateful nor harmful. It may be delusional but I think its pretty obvious that the hate in the middle east has much to do with nationalism, ethnicity, and economics as much as it does religion. If everyone went non-theist overnight the same problems would be here, just justified in a different way.
2001-10-06 10:11:19 PM  
Oops... forgot to quote the source...

That was first said by Arnaud-Armaury, the Abbot of Citeaux in 1209 before the Crusaders destroyed Beziers in southern France.
2001-10-06 10:14:41 PM  
Remember the USS Liberty!!!
Jonathan Pollard!!!!
Beirut Marine bombing!!!!
Billions od US $$$$ to them all!!!!!

We need to get the hell out of all of the middle east (Egypt,Saudi Arabia, Israeli support, et al) untill they really need us. Shiat or get off the pot.

Also lets take the economic hit and go green, quit being an oil junkie.

in my lifetime (sarcasm)
2001-10-06 10:16:08 PM  

What do you mean by "but assuming that humankind could have ever been removed from religion shows a real lack of critical thinking."
2001-10-06 10:16:14 PM  
That article, well non-article, or better yet opinion, maybe just a comment, what ever it was is way out of context. I've read what Sharon said in full and basically he doesn't want US to become friends with the mid-east Moslem countries just so the USA can kill Moslems (Taliban) without bad PR or outrage from other Moslem nations. I hate to break it to Sharon though, we need some friends over there, plus I beleive in keeping friends close and my enemies even closer.

I know it's a long shot but I really think in about 10 - 15 years the USA well have the middle east under our thumbs. I hope.
2001-10-06 10:17:51 PM  
M3 TA3: That's pretty funny. But acutally it looks more like he's teaching Yoda (pictured center) to use the force.
2001-10-06 10:19:33 PM  
watchout for when the real israeli/anti-israeli debate starts getting going with some people who have thus enjoined other threads.

What the hell is fark doing posting such a biased and misleading title anyway?

2001-10-06 10:20:01 PM  
Oh, for a follow up check out 2001/10/07/News/News.35790.html&title=Sharon+%27clarifies%27+appeasement+remar ks&source=frontpage
2001-10-06 10:23:48 PM  
And so, the Israeli apartheid-machine rolls on...
Hitler would be proud indeed.
6 million Jews killed in WW2!
I wonder how many million Palestinians, Lebanese, Syrians, and Egytians Israel has killed since WW2?
No one ever learns from their past, I guess.
2001-10-06 10:25:00 PM  
Thirdrail -Pax Americana is not what I would call an improvement. Our own cultural colonialism gives all these people grief and that's just a small output of our involvement. America First sounds pretty damn good a foreign policy right now.
Oh that's after we "nuke" the terrorists
2001-10-06 10:28:08 PM  
These headers are getting pretty goddamned outrageous. I'm really getting disappointed with Farks' stretching of the facts, and taking liberties with interpretations...... Bloody shame.....
2001-10-06 10:28:32 PM  
Clooch, yeah go figure. Would you agree that Sharon is just acting like a jealous girlfriend?

"Politics makes strange bead fellows" or something like that.
2001-10-06 10:28:34 PM  
Clooch - Ummmm... I bet the sum total of Arab deaths caused by Israel is around 25000, including all wars, and palestinian related shiat.

Re: Luvnuriko.
I'm not sure where you get your figures; Sesame Street?
If I shot someone dead or just buldozed their home, arrested their family, stuck them in a 'refugee' camp with little or no medical assistance and then they died would there be a difference?
Direct murder or indirect murder, it is still murder.
By the way, does anyone here actually *know* any Mid-East history? Or do you all just repeat what mommy, daddy and CNN say?
2001-10-06 10:37:35 PM  
We just repeat. You're the smartest.
