cptjeff: And meanwhile, the ultra orthodox in Israel are spitting on women who dare to show their ankles.

Seriously, how do any of these asses get women to have sex with them?


One difference in your attempt to create a false comparison between the two is that Hamas has dictatorial control over the Palestinians.  The Ultra-orthodox in Israel comprise about 8% of the population and are dealt with in a Democracy.

Both I'm sure are not good in the sack when it comes to sex with women... but missionary authoritarian has never been a turn on for the ladies.

NostroZ: Becomes an anti-Israel, anti-orthodox religion, ant-Semitic rant.


Dude, just...stop.

No one cares on Fark - your prized possessions make great kindling, and your sacred cows will be turned into pink slime and force-fed to your children. You know how they tell journalists not to make the story about them, EVER? Don't make a Fark thread about you (unless it's one of those TF "TFer so-and-so is financing a pelican rescue organization. Please fund it" threads). EVER. It will never end well for you, and you may find yourself immortalized like a GI Joe up your ass.

Christians get it pretty good in some threads, the FSM knows Fark loves piling on the dumbass Muslims in other threads, Scientology even has an alternate spelling of mockery...

Ignore it and move on, secure in the knowledge you have that others don't. Take solace in the fact that Fark is not known for having an effect on geopolitics, so I think it's safe to assume no one's going to start a genocide based on a Fark thread. Let go of your anger.

Hamas was elected.  Just because we don't like em doesn't make them not elected.

And trust me.  I really don't like them.  But let's not pretend that there aren't sections of Israel where women are segregated from men.  For the exact.  same.  reason.  Because there are.

Gender Segregation is the issue here.  And Israel is guilty of it as Gaza.

As for the 8% figure, that's how many Israeli Jews *self-identify* as "ultra-orthodox".  When you can point to a sizeable Haredi population... it's easy to say "I'm not as orthodox as THOSE guys"

And the Haredi population, the most conservative of the Ultra-Orthodox, is also the fastest growing Jewish population, both in Israel specifically, and globally on average.

This isn't a BSABS-exhonerate Hamas.  It's that shiat stinks everywhere it's happening.  And we need to call it out wherever we see it, even if (I might go so far as to say *especially if*) it happens among our allies.

Fart_Machine: I'm sure you've had some sensitivity training in not using the N-Word around black people or why it's wrong for you to talk about their culture. Haven't you?

Or are you so callous that you do not see what I am asking you to feel?

Holy Hyperbole Batman! You just compared criticizing Israel to attacking every Jewish person. I have no idea about what point you were trying to make otherwise. Have you taken your meds today?


So insults is all you have left... okay, callously lacking empathy it is for you Mr. Fart_Machine.

But make no mistake, only because you don't understand what it's like to be persecuted and why it's wrong for someone who is not to lob insults at someone who is, does not make it right.  Just as much as it is for you to go to Harlem and scream out the N-Word.

As anyone can tell by this story, the UN is of no help... it's an inept democratic body with Middle East / African representatives where Israel is a member, will always vote to hate on the Jews... (Democracy cannot be two wolves and a sheep deciding what to eat) & the UN is filled with a bunch of Jew haters - 26% of the resolutions they pass are passed against a country that is less than .1% of the globe.

All this goes on while Sudan has a genocide for a few decades.
All this goes on while Haiti has thousands dying of Cholera.
All this goes on while Syria is in civil war and Iraq is has been for a decade.

So please excuse me if I'm agitated when you throw insults at me, when you know nothing about persecution and only perpetrate it through commission or omission.

That's cool Mr.BessNuts, I'll be sure to check up on your future posts when I'm sure you're you'll be criticizing Pakistan, Yemen, Columbia, and Iraq, since they are ALL our ALLIES.

Yet, somehow, I think that you have an "especially if they are" Jewish, then criticize them policy for that US ally.
I'm sure if I were to look at your history, you don't actually criticize US allies.  You pretend to care about people, morality, etc... but in truth you just want a high horse from which to scream you superiority in religion and politics... which the Jews happen to have both inferior to yours.

/A false equivalency is just that...  I doubt you even criticize your own country men when they force women to undergo transvaginal ultra-sounds just to have access to control their body's reproduction.

NostroZ: Military might in the middle east. In the form of intelligence and future weapon technology.


Um, most of the friction we have in the Middle East is due to our alliance with Israel.  And if their technology is so superior why do we keep giving them military aid?

LargeCanine: Fart_Machine: LargeCanine: Fart_Machine: LargeCanine: Gazans are a dependant population and they will never "grow up" as long as they are a charity case.

I'm glad you're in favor of removing foreign aid to Israel as well.

Alliances are two way streets. Each party gains something.

What do we gain from Israel again?

I am guessing that is not a serious question, but I will mention a few things. Cooperative intelligence exchanges with one of the best intel gathering nations in the world, military and technical cooperation - for example Israel pioneered UAVs and was instrumental in developing the Stuxnet virus, hot women, trade - Israeli businesses mostly sell to other businesses but there are some comsumer goods like Sodastream, Israel is a military ally - there was no question which side Israel would have been on if the Cold War had turned hot - that continues today, and a reliable UN vote. Oh, and Israel is a civilized democracy, unlike their neighbors, of course they are a natural ally.

  They have the most powerful foreign lobbying group in the US.

TrollingForColumbine: I think it was just an observation that all religious extremists are asshats. in other words.


Once again, I will ask you to refrain from pretending a FALSE EQUIVALENT is an okay way to hold an honest conversation.  Hamas, an all powerful religious military group that was/is considered terrorist that controls the West Bank/Gaza vs. Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel, who live and participate in a parliamentary Democracy of which they are about 8%.

Here is the definition of a False Equivalence
A common way for this fallacy to be perpetuated is one shared trait between two subjects is assumed to show equivalence, especially in order of magnitude, when equivalence is not necessarily the logical result. The pattern of the fallacy is often as such: If A is the set of c and d, and B is the set of d and e, then since they both contain d, A and B are equal.
Example:
"They're both soft, cuddly pets. There's no difference between a cat and a dog."

/You started with a troll comment of "Not sure why Hamas and the Orthodox Jews don't get along better."
//Please don't tell me a false equivalency is not trolling.
///Try this one.  Your brain is soft and mushy, there is no difference between it and oatmeal.

Different hats.

Isaac: I Iike your hat
Ishmael: Fark You


Is this what you really believe?  That somehow all the oppressive controlling religious asshats out there would get along because they realize they all hate the same thing?

Just play that out in your mind for something that you actually understand.... How about ultra-conservative from Islam here in Dearborn Michigan USA and the local religious people's reaction to a group who shares the same books and acknowledges the holiness of Christ.

Please tell me you're trolling in your assumption that Hamas and Ultraorthodox Jews would ever agree on anything or their similarity purely based on hate.

I'll just assume it's based on your understanding limited understanding of the world and a simplification of any group to "they are not like me, so they are all the same."

Women really have to be front line soldiers in some of these backwards territories.  Can you imagine Hammas or the Taliban fighting against an all-female armed force?  I think the chance of being beaten by women would deter them from entering into the fight in the first place.  The chances of losing cred would just be too great.
