I still think opening a "Gentlemen's Club" called "The Gaza Strip" featuring mid-east hotties would be gold. GOLD I TELL YOU!

/well, at least it would be a blast.

Posted without a trace of irony :/

Lets just say this last page of debate didn't help your case.

You really, really, suck at debating.


You're just putting me on, now, aren't you? ;)

Uncle Tractor: Jake Havechek: Tatsuma supports ethnic cleansing and an aparthied state.

That goes with being a zionist / zionist sympathizer, or Israel-apologist a troll with multiple alts in one thread.

xxysyndrome: I'm glad Israel isn't letting you down in this way. Ethnic cleansing forever!


You win the moron award for this thread.

The only peopel who have been "ethnically cleansed" from Gaza are jews, you dumb fark. The population of Palestenians is growing.

Uncle Tractor: joshik72: Ah... The shrinking green map! Know what this data tells me?

It tells me this: if the Arabs had accepted the 1947 Partition Plan, they would have had a larger Palestinian State then they're ever gonna get now.

Why on earth did anybody expect them to accept the 1947 partition plan? Oh yeah; Europe was a fading colonial power at the time and brown people didn't count.

Just because Israel *can* take all the land doesn't mean it's the right thing to do. However, Israel is stuck in the 1900's colonial mindset...


Contrary to your debunked map they didn't "own" the green land in 1946.

They expected them to accept it because of the constant conflict between jews and Arabs in the area and that plan would allow most groups to stay where they lived.

They figured the Arabs living there would be smart enough to realize they would profit much more from being trading partners than declaring war just because the other groups was Jewish. Too bad they were wrong.

Wouldn't it be cheaper in the long run just to buy out a crappy state like Nebraska, then transplant all the residents of israel there? Make it like an indian reservation except with jews.

mayIFark: Mitch Taylor's Bro: mayIFark: Given that their rockets rarely injures anyone, their ability to run the government must be really really bad.

Subby just compared it to being able to launch rockets, which they seem to do okay. (But judging by TFA, they ARE really bad at governing.)

/ Not subby

A good launch would usually end in good landing, unless my angrybird knowledge is wrong.


Screw you and your elitist, high standards! :-)

When me and my friends were kids, we used to mess around with bottle rockets (which were just about as sophisticated as the ones the Palestinians use, just smaller and less lethal). To us, a good launch was one that went up without exploding in our faces.

On a more serious note, I don't think the rockets are like mortars; I don't think they are actually aimed at anything. The Palestinians just use them to piss off the Israelis. Any actual death and destruction that happens as a result is a bonus to them. Perhaps Tats can confirm or deny my assumption?

Jake Havechek: You don't want hot headed rabble rousers in your government. The only instance where this has worked was after the American Revolution. Jefferson was not called "Mad Tom"(but not to his face) for no reason.

Revolutionaries have little to do once the revolution is over, and can even turn on the government they helped bring into being.


Robespierre would agree with you, if his head were still attached.

He also kept up the constant tension of outside and internal threats. Whether it was "the wreckers" that intentionally made Soviet durable goods fall apart or simply the United States, they always had a reason that you had to rally around Joseph Stalin.


and all this time I assumed that just because of his mustache.

That's the kind of mustache you would follow straight into hell... and they did.
