Is it possible that any other segment(s) of the population may be the unwitting recipients of this (or other) "medical care"?

Called it the "Ethiopian Shim Sham".

I lived in Tel Aviv for a couple of years in the mid-90's. Not for religious reasons. At that time, the Ethiopian Jews were fairly new to Israel and were not receiving a warm welcome by the populace. Many stories about discrimination etc.

The Israelis also discovered that many of the Russian Jewish emigres had organized crime in their DNA. I doubt they're being chemically castrated though.

Those Ethiopians should move here instead, where their insurance company may decline to cover contraception.

This should prove once and for all that Israel is not racist against non-jews. They are simply are racist against brown people, regardless of religion... so no different than the US or EU.
 
2013-01-28 09:55:45 AM
It's not eugenics when we do it.

The Ethiopians *were* Jews, if it's the same population I'm thinking of  (truncated article).  That's what makes it more fun.  They proved they were, so they got to become Israelis.  Jesus f--king Christ.

I'm almost certain that's not a heritable trait (not that basic scientific facts matter to ideological nutjobs).

/dudes, seriously, fark you. You clearly haven't learned anything


In order to make sure that never happens to us again, we need to be better at doing it to everyone else first?

From one or two references the Daily Show has made, I get the impression that a large segment of the Israeli populace (and the opposition backbenchers they elected) is just as unimpressed with the Israeli government.

Agreed.

The Holocaust and the devastation it caused is simply indescribable, and we (the world) have an obligation to never allow anything even close to that to occur again.

That being said, however, does not give Israel a pass on any action they take from now until the end of time. They have as much of a responsibility to play nice as any other nation.

They really do mirror the US on a lot of historic fronts.

The current settlements are like Manifest Destiny.

The West Bank/Gaza are like Native American reservations.

The Depo shots are like...Tuskeegee? no...Forced Sterilizations...not quite...but there is probably something I'm overlooking.

Maybe we should start doing that at ICE detention centers.

Can't say I'm terribly surprised. Israelis have been becoming what they fled for a long time.

Not only is that a grave breech of international law, but they've also been whining incessantly about similar injustices done to them for the past 68 years. Hypocrites. And between foreign aid to Israel and foreign aid to Egypt(for the sole purpose of not attacking Israel) we shell out about $4 billion/year for these guys.

So...

When can we stop forking over huge planeloafs of fat cash and boatloads of free military hardware?

Would it really be so bad if we let the Arabs pave over Jerusalem and build a big gaudy shopping mall covered in bling by the designer of their Mecca Sauron-clock? I'm sure most of the Jews would escape and propagate their ppl elsewhere. They might have to live like Palestinians for a while though, lol.

An insult against Israel is an insult against 'Murica. Which is an insult against the GOP.

I can't wait until we are energy independent. Israel is pissing its pants dreading the day we no longer give a shiat about the Middle East and have no need for a petulant, arrogant little shiat of an allied democracy in the region.

Fair enough, nobody's being actively exterminated.

They're still dicks.

Actually, maybe they're more like the abused child that grows up to be a profoundly disfunctional adult and lashes out at everyone before they can be hurt again.

/huh, Israel is my psycho ex.
