Girion47: TappingTheVein: Philip Francis Queeg: Too bad the IDF uses Palestinian children as human shields as well. I guess neither side thinks Palestinian children's lives are worth very much, do they?If an israeli soldier does it there is an investigation and a trial and the israeli public like myself think he's a piece of shiat, the israeli court itself forbids it (nohal shachen). The palestinians do it as part of their training and warfare, it's their tactic. Do you understand the difference ?So why do you guys use white phosphorus?
TappingTheVein: Excellent article, arab reporter actually acknowledging reality and also published by an arab news site ? in public ? This is extremely rare.This guy has balls of steel. I hope he won't get hurt for speaking the truth.
Muta: Giltric: They arabs were always keen on rescuing the land from the jews....When was the last time an Arab country invaded Israel?I don't think arab leaders are that keen on rescuing the land any more.
Philip Francis Queeg: Wooly Bully: clambam: Noo, because you do hate Jews.This is a nasty and unfounded attack.I've seen this guy PFQ call out real anti-Semites, many times. He's one of the good guys and they deserve to be praised, not libeled.Thank you kind Sir or Madam.
Philip Francis Queeg: You are truly a moron. I have repeatedly said that all three examples of "pre-emptive" war gave are utter bullshiat and completely unjustified.
Wicked Chinchilla: you missed the point by a mile clambam. He is making a direct comparison between the claims of Japan in '41 to the claims of Israel in '67. He is not using them to justify anything, he is using it as an example of "This is unjust for the same reasons"
Mouser: Giltric: On May 14, 1948 the state of Israel was declared. And just one day after that, on May 15, 1948 the Arabs declared war on Israel to get back Palestine.They arabs were always keen on rescuing the land from the jews....but never keen on rescuing the Palestinians.Why should they? Palestinians are more Jewish than Arab.The dirty secret of the Middle East is that despite claims to the contrary, Palestinians are not Arab. They're Jewish converts to Islam. The story of the Jewish Diaspora in the 1st-2nd Centuries AD is only half-true; not all Jews were expelled. Some remained behind, and many had converted to Christianity by that time. When the armies of Islam marched in during the 7th Century AD, these quasi-Jewish/Christian Palestinians, wanting to get in good with their conquerors, started converting over to their religion.Seriously, the whole Palestinian mess could be solved overnight if the Palestinians would convert back to the faith of their ancestors and re-adopt Judaism. The Israeli authorities could hardly discriminate against one of their own, now could they?
Philip Francis Queeg: That's not the case. The build up was going on. A flight of B-17s in transit to the Philippines happened to arrive in Hawaii on the morning of December 7, 1941. It did not go so well for them. 2 squadrons had already preceded them. There had been a significant build up of aircraft in the Philippines through the fall of 1941.
Magruda: s2s2s2: Magruda: Except the land grab that happend afterward.Yeah, bummer how Israel did what everyone else was trying to do to them. Fark em. Tough shiat. Seriously.Pretty sure Israel was ready to live and let live. Should have just let them live.Wonderful justification.
Joe Blowme: The Evil That Lies In The Hearts Of Men: Girion47: Think about the money we've spent on wars outside our borders, what could it have gone to?For the cost of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars the US could have fitted every house in the country with either solar power or a geothermal heating/cooling system and had a few hundred billion dollars left over for hookers and blow.Instead we gave 39+million people a chance at freedom and self determination Why do you hate brown people?
