Well duh! It's that time of the year.

Okay, a little late for Ramadan and Yom Kippur, but just in time for Christmas. And "late" cards are always in style, so we're good, right?

NumberFiveIsAlive: I wonder how many people in here will see that the most recent round of violence started with Hamas attacked the IDF. IDF shoots back, Hamas shoots rockets indescriminately.

Israel does their share of stupid shiat, but Hamas ain't the cherub faced baby in this one.


PhoenixInFlames: Israel started this one. Airstrikes and killing military leaders = not good, and going to end in retaliation.

*sigh* Can we just sever all ties with everyone in the Middle East, Israel included? It's like having a little brother who knows you can kick ass, and insists on starting shiat with their classmates cuz they know you'll defend them.

You know the same organizations that put into daily practice everything that their useful idiot defenders decry anyone else doing (murder, poor treatment of woman, civil liberties etc).

Never understood people like that, it's like the vegan that says it's okay to eat hamburger from Angus cows but goes around belittling anyone who dares to eat the meat of any other cow or other animal as being cruel to animals. Stand back, grab your marshmallows and get ready to watch everyone flame everyone....


They aren't defending the violence of Hamas, they're condemning the violence of Israel. It's a subtle difference.

bostonguy: No doubt there will be condemnations of Israel's strikes on Gaza. But remember this: Israel would leave Gaza alone if the terrorists would just stop firing rockets into Israel. It really is that simple. Israel wants to live in peace. Hamas and others want to live without Israel existing.

Clearly you never understood people like that, because clearly you don't under what they actually SAY. In the minds of normal people, criticizing Israel does not equate to praising Hamas to the skies. Only in the false dichotomies that bedevil small minds does every statement about Israel or Hamas become either "Israel is wonderful and Hamas is evil" or "Hamas is wonderful and Israel is evil."

But some people's minds simply cannot comprehend that level of nuance and thus mistake it for hypocrisy..

I wonder if these events will cause other Muslim nations in the area to react militarily against Israel, which will in turn warrant a military response in kind from the US.

I don't think Iran would directly involve themselves, I'd put my money on Egypt before anyone else, but the Israelis could be hoping that Iran will react forcing the US' hand.

Of course, I never was very good with world politics and could be simply over analyzing the situation and this could simply be a justified response to attacks from Hamas controlled regions in the Gaza strip.

You know, genetically speaking, the Jews were there first and there the longest (and as the best defined location specific ethnic group). There was some hoopla a couple of years ago when the studies came out. I'm having trouble remembering where to find them, but I think this is one (unable to log in right now to verify). The Palestinians are fairly recent immigrees to the region (in consideration of that part of the world having a very deep history) moving in as a result of the Romans were doing their thing to run the Jews out. (You know, the whole ethnic cleansing, destroying their temples, outlawing the people and religion, stealing their property, etc all that fun stuff if the history I learned is right.)

The situation is a whole lotta gray once you know the actual history of the place and not the propaganda from both sides. One must be pretty retarded to think one side is right and the other wrong or that both sides are wrong. You say it's the Jews forcing their way onto someone else's property, but others could equate it to the homeowners returning after a long trip away and seeking to kick out squatters (squatters who enlisted the aid of some ethnic cleansers to run the family out in the first place). If there is any truth at all, it's probably in the middle, but where oh where? Can't be easy to find it else they wouldn't be handing Nobel Peace Prizes out like candy to anyone who seems to come close to figuring it out.

If I were surrounded by people who have openly admitted they would not be satisfied until my family was driven into the ocean, damn right I would react with anything I had when they shoot rockets into my backyard.

Palestine can never make peace with Israel, because you can't make peace with a country you say doesn't exist. If they signed a peace treaty, that would go against everything they believe in.

karl2025: jehovahs witness protection: Hamas is learning that when you open fire, people tend to return fire.

They've known this for decades. That's why they're firing rockets in the general direction of Israel ("Into" Israel is technically correct, but seems to give more credit to the Palestinian's capacity to aim their rockets than they really deserve), so that the Israelis will retaliate and undermine the authority of the Palestinian (West Bank) government that at least seems to want to move on from the ridiculous goal of retaking the country and just get on with being a real country. Israel, of course doesn't mind playing along with Gaza's plan since they want to keep the West Bank from being sovereign so they can keep putting up settlements and because the Israeli government looks good to its people when it's blowing up stuff. You can make up your own mind which is more important to them.


and they do this to accomplish what now?

Seriously? Did you miss the part where Hamas has launched 110 missiles into Israel since Saturday, after the IDF responded to a missile attack on one of their jeeps?

Israel certainly isn't innocent in a general sense, but with respect to these events specifically it seems like a pretty rational act to take out Hamas's military leader.

Seriously, try to find a major condemnation of Hamas or similar terrorist organizations by these people at anything like the level they condemn Israel. You might find a few examples here and there, but they are the exception. To be honest I have read far more criticism and condemnation of Hamas and similar terrorist groups from Arabs. The useful idiots condemn only one side of the equation, having decided that their morals and values don't apply if the victim is somebody that they don't like.

Just for the record: "Semitic" refers only to a family of languages and not anything else. The Hebrew and Arabic languages are Semitic. The religions, and anything else, are not. (The term "anti-Semitism" was invented by an anti-Semite to describe his beliefs, and it stuck somehow.)

And once again we see the false dichotomy that plagues the thinking of the the far right. "We think Muslims are evil, and the left doesn't agree with us, therefore liberals love Muslims and think they're perfect!" Any message more nuanced than "Yay Islam wonderful!" or "Boo, Islam bad!" gets distorted into one of those two blurbs. "Yes, there are many problems, and atrocities have been committed in the name of Islam; but not all Muslims are terrorists, and you're oversimplifying the issue and painting with too broad a brush" doesn't fit onto a bumper sticker well, I suppose.

It's both sad and frightening that the left is embroiled in an endless argument with a group of people who by and large LITERALLY CANNOT comprehend what we're trying to say. 

I'm reminded of the adage "When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail," except in this case, it would have to start with "When all you have is straw."

Sorta like what Israel did during Iraq-Iran war?
 
2012-11-14 02:29:10 PM
This is the scariest thing I have ever experienced:

I once took a very long bus ride in South America, and was seated next to a guy from Florida. We talked very pleasantly for a good few hours, about a variety of subjects, and then the topic of Israel and Palestine came up. He would later tell me that he was Jewish, but that hadn't come up in the conversation prior to that point. Anyhow, he asked me for my opinion about the conflict and, considering that I was in the midst of reading a lot about that part of the world, I gave (what I thought to be) a very nuanced answer that probably took about 10 minutes to properly lay out.

He looked at me, blankly, for a few seconds, and then simply stated "I'd wipe them all out."
"Who?"
"The Palestinians."
"What do you mean?"
"Simple. Kill every single Palestinian that's alive. It's the only solution."

I sat there, unable to comprehend what he had said. This was an educated and professional man who had a wife, four children, and was able to speak quite eloquently and intelligently about a broad range of topics. Prior to this part of the conversation, I would have easily labelled him a normal, healthy, and friendly guy.

After collecting myself, I tried to reason with him about what he had just suggested, pointing out the insanity of it all, but without being accusatory. It was then that he said the scariest thing I've ever heard, because he GENUINELY believed it:

"You have to understand, I'm a pacifist."

In a single breath, he would go on to explain to me that although he was a pacifist the only solution to the Israel/Palestine conflict was to murder every single man, woman, and child that considers themselves Palestinian. He genuinely believed both of these statements, and saw absolutely no contradiction between them.

As we discussed this further, and he saw that I did not agree with him, he got VERY aggressive towards me. After about 30 more minutes he was so upset that I said something like:

"You know, when you talk about my personal opinions and beliefs, you seem to get as angry as you do when you talk about the Palestinians."

He just stared at me, lifeless, and said "Yes, that's right." You could tell that he would have easily put me in the "EXTERMINATE IMMEDIATELY" group, had he had the power to do so.

After that, we stopped talking (obviously) and just sat on the bus. He had been using the armrest the entire trip, without incident from me, and after he got up to go to the bathroom, I decided that I'd like a turn at it. When he returned, he started trying to forcibly push my arm off the armrest.

"Excuse me, don't do that please" I said.
"Just move your arm up so I can have the back part of the armrest" he replied.
"You've had it for hours, and I would like a turn" I said.
"You are so selfish. You are just like the farking Palestinians" he proclaimed.

As I said, meeting that man was, without a doubt, the scariest experience I've ever had. For someone to appear so normal, and psychologically healthy, after talking for hours about a variety of subjects... only to find out that he's, in many ways, a psychopath... really shook me. Of course, at the time, my reaction to him could probably best be described by this:

Are you American? How many US citizens were killed on 9/11? How many Afghan citizens have been killed in our counterattack? Are you saying that we are dickheads for being there? Should we have packed it up and gone home once the 4,000th Afghan was killed?

It means that at least on this level, they don't want to fark with Obama. That's some quality bet-hedging.

I'm just waiting for all the other shoes to drop post-election. I think it's going to be like a Nike shipping container spilling open as it's lifted off a cargo ship.

my_cats_breath_smells_like_cat_food: PhoenixInFlames: Israel started this one. Airstrikes and killing military leaders = not good, and going to end in retaliation.

*sigh* Can we just sever all ties with everyone in the Middle East, Israel included? It's like having a little brother who knows you can kick ass, and insists on starting shiat with their classmates cuz they know you'll defend them.

Wait, what? Hamas launches over 100 rockets/missiles at you over the course of a few days/weeks, but responding with a precision strike that takes out 1 car that happens to contain the person IN CHARGE of launching hundreds of rockets/missiles is "starting this one"

/facepalm


Hamas is ALWAYS launching rockets into Israel. I doubt a month goes by without them flinging some random explosive into Israel.

Israel usually retaliates with a little launching of their own, reacting on-par with the level given to them. Usually.. Sometimes they react a little more aggressively, but typically it's tit-for-tat.

If they thought that taking out a leader in Hamas was going to end well, they were fools.

topcon: The far left loves Muslims for some reason, despite the fact they're kookier on the whole than America's religious people by a wide margin. We're talking entire countries that oppress women, gays, freedom of speech, etcetera, pretty much the antithesis to social progression.

That's my point, they go around defending people who are /much/ further to the right than any of the religious fundamentalists in this country... It's a bit like if the Westboro Baptist Church was zealously defended by the local GLBT club every time they condemned gays.
Well... to be perfectly honest, the left does love Westboro baptists
