Cry moar, Israeli lobby. Obama's the best president since Eisenhauer for protecting American interests, not just bowing to Israeli ones.

You know very well that it hasn't gone beyond heavy petting.

Or is that droning?
A US President never has to apologize for putting US interests ahead of other countries', and that includes Israel. Obama is somehow expected to blast Iran back to the pre-nuclear age at a moment's notice, but not even give a frank assessment to Netanyahu. That's just silly.

Apartheid state is a fancy sounding word for someone trying to pigeon hole Jews as people who are 'special in their history of religion and as the Jewish people'.

Every country is FOR it's people... Yes, not all Arabs are citizens, but there ARE Arab citizens with EQUAL rights.  No different than blacks, or Latinos here in America who have EQUAL rights, but are discriminated against, as is the human nature.

If you're here to argue that JEWS are SPECIAL and ANY imperfection from them as a WHOLE PEOPLE means that they are evil. Then we have our first official anti-Semite in this thread.

It's pretty obvious that the two of you are lost in WILLFUL IGNORANCE.

For those who prefer to get their opinions from facts, instead of feeling the need to repeat an idiotic remark any time Israel is mentioned; please note the following:


1) Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Egypt all receive either more or close to what Israel gets in US aid.
2) Unlike Pakistan that was hiding OSB, Israel provides positive intelligence information to the US, in addition to an exchange of military technology, some of which is:


    ADM-141 TALD (Improved Tactical Air Launched Decoy)- device used to protect U.S. warplanes from enemy fire.
    AGM-142 Have Nap "The Popeye" - a precise bomb which hits specific coordinates
    Python missile - A major air to air missile.
    M120 mortar - A 120 mm Mortar developed by Soltam Systems.
    SMAW - An Anti-tank guided missile developed by Israel Military Industries, based on the Israeli B-300.
    Cardom - A 120mm Recoil mortar system using modern electronic navigation, self-positioning, and target acquisition.
    Gabriel missile - A sea skimming Anti-ship missile.
    SIMON breach grenade - A rifle grenade designed to breach through doors. A variant is currently in service with the United States army.
    LITENING targeting pod - A precision targeting pod designed to increase combat effectiveness of aircraft.
    International MaxxPro - An MRAP armored fighting vehicle.
    Samson Remote Controlled Weapon Station - A Remote weapon system.

3) Finally, the money that is sent in 'aid' to Israel is used to purchase US weapons, exclusively.  Therefore, the US 'aid' to Israel amounts to a US military jobs program, since the money is used to purchase US made goods.

_____

I know it's fun to hate Jews and keep screaming "why do we help them!", but don't pretend this is done on a moralistic high-ground.  The US gets plenty for it's money to Israel.  I'd argue we get a MUCH better return on investment than the money we spent in Iraq, Afghanistan, or Pakistan (over a trillion dollars on our two wars... keep it in perspective haters).

White House announces that it is lowering expectations for Barack Obama's Israel trip, presumably from "establishing the groundwork for a lasting Middle East peace" to "not handing over Israel to the Friends of Hamas" because what the fark is there to do with two countries who can't be arsed to try anymore?

The Palestinian government trades on "Israeli oppression", taking away that rhetorical bullet collapses their economy - those members of Palestinian parliament that reject unification/peace* would reject it HARD.
The Israeli government is far too paranoid to let any big-deal resolution happen - those members of Knesset that would reject it would reject it HARD.

When it's piecemeal or nothing, and neither side is even trying, I say let 'em crash.

// why is Obama even going now? He got an invite to my cousin's seder?
*I really mean that either/or. There can be a single Israel with two souls, or two states, and neither resolution is palatable to a government that wants a single Palestinian state (or failing that, zero Israels).

Why aren't they citizens of Jordan!?

data.un.org

Look at the map!
Why is it ISRAEL that needs to fix the problems of the population to the south (Gaza) population to the east (west bank) and population to the north (Hezbollah)???

There is Egypt for Gaza, who have refused to allow Palestinians to cross their border to get supplies (killing them on sight).
There is Jordan that has refused to take ANY Palestinian in as citizen... Jordan took a large chunk of the land given in the original Balfour declaration (twice the size of Israel), and pushed all the 'non citizen Arabs you described' as close to Israel as they can and then got the UN to get a PERMANENT and SPECIAL status to be placed on those 'refugees'.
Finally, there is Lebanon, where there is plenty of Palestinians who are not considered citizens... and will not be admitted to the government.

_____

Please join in threads about Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon's humanitarian treatment of the Palestinians.  How they are kept in refugee camps and are not citizens for generations, at the hands of their own brethren!

Yet, I'm sure you don't care about those countries and how they treat Palestinians for some reason... Ya, Jew hating hypocrite.

3) Finally, the money that is sent in 'aid' to Israel is used to purchase US weapons, exclusively.  Therefore, the US 'aid' to Israel amounts to a US military jobs program, since the money is used to purchase US made goods.

Nutsac_Jim: mayIFark: Nutsac_Jim: GAT_00: Lasing ME peace simply isn't possible with the current Israeli government.  They're interested only in expansion.

This just in, one can expand on your own damn land, unless there is an HOA.

Just because one say its their own, does not make it so. From UN to USA to rest of the world, no one recognizes those lands as Israel's and denounces settlement. Those propaganda has been tried before here.

That's what happens when you lose a war.  Don't like it? Don't fight wars, or make sure you win.

NostroZ: vernonFL: InstaZen25: Except Arabs are citizens there and they have Arab members of their Knesset. Also, Arabs are not the majority there. So many things wrong here

Arabs living in the West Bank are not citizens of any country.

Why aren't they citizens of Jordan!?

[data.un.org image 300x300]

Look at the map!
Why is it ISRAEL that needs to fix the problems of the population to the south (Gaza) population to the east (west bank) and population to the north (Hezbollah)???

There is Egypt for Gaza, who have refused to allow Palestinians to cross their border to get supplies (killing them on sight).
There is Jordan that has refused to take ANY Palestinian in as citizen... Jordan took a large chunk of the land given in the original Balfour declaration (twice the size of Israel), and pushed all the 'non citizen Arabs you described' as close to Israel as they can and then got the UN to get a PERMANENT and SPECIAL status to be placed on those 'refugees'.
Finally, there is Lebanon, where there is plenty of Palestinians who are not considered citizens... and will not be admitted to the government.

_____

Please join in threads about Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon's humanitarian treatment of the Palestinians.  How they are kept in refugee camps and are not citizens for generations, at the hands of their own brethren!

Yet, I'm sure you don't care about those countries and how they treat Palestinians for some reason... Ya, Jew hating hypocrite.


Because they aren't Jordanian?  Because they are Palestinian?

Oh right, "there are no Palestinian, only Arabs, that way we aren't the anti-semitic ones."

Dr Dreidel: White House announces that it is lowering expectations for Barack Obama's Israel trip, presumably from "establishing the groundwork for a lasting Middle East peace" to "not handing over Israel to the Friends of Hamas" because what the fark is there to do with two countries who can't be arsed to try anymore?

The Palestinian government trades on "Israeli oppression", taking away that rhetorical bullet collapses their economy - those members of Palestinian parliament that reject unification/peace* would reject it HARD.
The Israeli government is far too paranoid to let any big-deal resolution happen - those members of Knesset that would reject it would reject it HARD.

When it's piecemeal or nothing, and neither side is even trying, I say let 'em crash.

// why is Obama even going now? He got an invite to my cousin's seder?
*I really mean that either/or. There can be a single Israel with two souls, or two states, and neither resolution is palatable to a government that wants a single Palestinian state (or failing that, zero Israels).


Obama is going to Israel because NOW is the BEST time to do so in his second term.
There is a change in power structure following the new coalition government and he is going to shake hands with the new members and perhaps get the wheels greased for something in the future.

I think it's best that expectations have been lowered... I always thought it was weird to have America come into that relationship and impose a solution... neither side wants that in the end... it's like calling in mommy/daddy when the siblings had a fight... it's better to resolve it yourself, because whatever punishment mommy/daddy imposes does not solve the underlying problem, it only heightens the issue by using the foreign authority figure for leverage.

mayIFark: So, a lot of American jobs were outsource to Israel? I get that, but don't understand how that is a positive and not a negative when it comes to aiding Israel.


Allow me to assist, if you're truly looking for knowledge vs. self-righteous indignation:

The jobs to Israel were NOT outsourced... in fact, in that scenario, the US had to hire MORE people due to a higher demand for military goods due to an increase in purchases from Israel of US made weapons (as a result of the 'aid' that's sent that's used exclusively to purchase US weapons).

So you thought your so called argument had logic? Good for you. Make sure to add the coin to your unicorn beforehand.

No, winning a war does not give anymore right to any land. Why the heck we went after Saddam after he occupied Kuwait? Or, by your logic, if Iran wins a war against Israel and grabs it, you will be fine with that? Whether they can or not is not the question, the question is will you be saying, they won the war, this land belongs to them?

Well, at least the problem is resolved - sure everyone (still) hates each other, but there are no bombs. You are correct that outside forces trying to solve regional conflicts often end up creating new ones (like ALL the post-WWI border-drawing that England/France did in the ME), but it's pretty clear that these two sides are either OK with the status quo or unwilling to do anything to change it.

Your slashy is a bit too pie-in-the-sky. They are governments - by definition, what they do is "in the world theater"/"on the world stage", and while both sides have a victim's mentality, both are more than willing to subject their people to sectarian violence (or the aftereffects of it) to further political goals. The problem is that no one wants to sort through the bullshiat - the lines are predrawn, and everything that happens gets filtered through that lens first.

//I doubt you have the time to research or care about the countless wars that were brought upon Israel in less than 30 years following its creation...  But please, stop talking about Israel as though no real people live there or as though they have not been fighting to KEEP their land since 1947.

Awww Jack Chick!  Always with the mot juste!:

A Message From Jack Chick


Dear Ones in Christ,

When I saw the news of those freakish tornadoes hitting in February that caused such havoc, the first thing that crossed my mind was, "What on earth are we doing to Israel?" God made it clear we are not going against Jerusalem, God's holy city, or tamper with His holy land. But our American leaders are, and I dread to think of the consequences as the "roadmap for peace" is negotiated. Is there anyone advising the president that giving God's land to the Muslims is a no-no? The media have successfully changed the thinking of the people into believing Israel is the villain. It's the Muslims who are screaming for blood. All Israel is trying to do is stay alive!

Watch the storms increase every time we double-cross little Israel. I believe we are just getting a taste of what is coming. What should we do as believers? "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem" (Ps. 122:6). God said, "I will bless them that bless [Israel], and curse him that curseth [Israel]" (Gen 12:3). Any nation messing with Jerusalem will pay a terrible price. (See Zech. 12:1-3.) In the not-too-distant future, Russia and the Muslim nations will move against her, and they will be destroyed. (See Ezek 38-39.) When we see these things coming upon us, the Lord tells us to "look up" (Luke 21:28) and preach the gospel (Matt. 24:14). We won't be able to pass tracts in heaven. By then it will all be over.

May God bless and protect you.

Your brother in Christ,

I know it's fun to hate Jews and keep screaming "why do we help them!", but don't pretend this is done on a moralistic high-ground.  The US gets plenty for it's money to Israel.  I'd argue we get a MUCH better return on investment than the money we spent in Iraq, Afghanistan, or Pakistan (over a trillion dollars on our two wars... keep it in perspective haters).


The money we send to Iraq, Egypt, Pakistan, and Afghanistan are all the result of American support for Israel. Before the US was forced to be friendly with the Israeli state and magnified when Israel blackmailed the u.s. with the threat of worldwide nuclear war in 1973, we had virtually no enemies in the M.E.

After that we started paying everyone off to play nice with Israel. This led to things like 9/11 and iraq etc. The fact is that the toxic relationship with the U.S. has cost us several trillion dollars and tens of thousands of American lives. I don't hate Israel, I want then off our Teets.

You, uh...

You don't remember the Cold War, do you?

The reason the US allied with Israel is either because Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, and others were allying with the Soviets (I believe Syria in particular ordered military hardware from the USSR) or to prevent them from becoming so allied (depending on the nation - also, many of these states had different names/borders than now). The US "forced" itself to be friends with Israel because they wanted a Cold War ally in the MidEast.

By world-stage, I really mean the UN, I'd like it to be dissolved... the League of Nations did not work... neither does the UN... it advocates FALSE external solutions on internal problems.  The UN is the world stage that countries dance in front of, with the security council sitting in the front row.

On a separate note, Dr. Dreidel:  What is your opinion on Iran and them getting nukes?
 - I'm under the impression that they will get them no matter what... we're not going to invade so eventually they'll get THE bomb.
 - What are they going to do with a nuke?  Not like they'll nuke Israel... there's holy cites that will be destroyed, plenty of people on 'their side' who will get killed, and the nuclear fallout would devastate the region.  Why do we care so much then?  Isn't this Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD)?

NostroZ: When Mexico comes in and claims most of the South-Western USA (as is historically theirs)


Israel is a member of the United Nations. It agreed to abide by modern norms of customary international law when it acceded to membership in that body. One of the motivations for creating the UN was to prevent any further wars to gain territory, as embodied in its Charter. Israel is currently in breach of that Charter. It is also currently, flagrantly, and openly violating the Fourth Geneva Convention, which absolutely prohibits ANY transfer of population into occupied territories - and which is not only binding on Israel through customary international law, but also through Israel's own signature on and ratification of that accord. Israel was also only created under the current international order, through Chapters XI and XII of the UN Charter. Israel is damned fortunate that the United States does whatever Israel asks, because barring United States interference Israel would have been as isolated as North Korea or Iran.

The conquest of portions of Mexico through the Mexican-American War and the Treaty of Guadalape Hidalgo occurred prior to the formulation of those international norms. It would not be permitted today, nor would many other things throughout history, which we fought a World War to prevent from happening again. If Israel doesn't want to abide by the international laws it agreed to follow in the first place, it can withdraw from them and all the protections they offer. Until then, the people who pay you are unquestionably in the wrong.

It is irrelevant **why** the US went into Iraq.  It does not matter whether one agrees or disagrees with the premise of conflict.  What matters is who wins the battle.  This is the spoils of war.

You seem to have this confused with spoiled as in 'waaaaaah'.

The fact that the coalition didn't go in and take land is because they chose not to do so.
Now, it could be said that Saddam could have chosen not to agree to it if the coalition said 'gimmie some land"

Do you have a hard time READING THE WHOLE QUOTE?  Jordanians lived there.  Syrians lived there. Etc.  PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING:

Between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese there are no differences. We are all part of ONE people, the Arab nation. Look, I have family members with Palestinian, Lebanese, Jordanian and Syrian citizenship. We are ONE people. Just for political reasons we carefully underwrite our Palestinian identity. Because it is of national interest for the Arabs to advocate the existence of Palestinians to balance Zionism. Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity exists only for tactical reasons. The establishment of a Palestinian state is a new tool to continue the fight against Israel and for Arab unity.

A separate Palestinian entity needs to fight for the national interest in the then remaining occupied territories. The Jordanian government cannot speak for Palestinians in Israel, Lebanon or Syria. Jordan is a state with specific borders. It cannot lay claim on - for instance - Haifa or Jaffa, while I AM entitled to Haifa, Jaffa, Jerusalem en Beersheba. Jordan can only speak for Jordanians and the Palestinians in Jordan. The Palestinian state would be entitled to represent all Palestinians in the Arab world en elsewhere. Once we have accomplished all of our rights in all of Palestine, we shouldn't postpone the unification of Jordan and Palestine for one second.

/Jordanians = Palestinians
//Get your head out of your read-end
///There was no unique 'Palestinian identity' until one was invented to fight against the Jews... the people that lived in the region ascribed themselves to the countries that are present (Jordan, Egypt, Syria, etc.) until they decided that they were a UNIQUE people who HAD title to the land the Jews reside on and they could not drive them from.   One leads the other... first they tried to kill off and drive out the Jews... when that did not work, then suddenly a 'Palestinian identity' rose up after the failed 1967 war.

You know he was referring to fighting Syria, Jordan, and Egypt.

Those maps are very inaccurate, as is the assertion that they are shot when they leave (at least by Israel). I think they still have a lot of people going back and forth through the checkpoints to work. They likely aren't shot.

They are effectively redrawing the WB border with the fences though. They are also still making mini-cities inside the WB. The PA is justified in fearing that Israel will then want to redraw border to connect those settlements, hence nothing getting done on the peace front in this trip or likely our lifetimes.

I know it's easier to NOT read what I WROTE and then FIGHT a straw-man, instead of acknowledging the fine nuance of reality.

I wrote about a 'Palestinian identity' forming following 1967, as a political strategy against the Zionists as shown in the following quote from a PLO member in 1977:

Between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese there are no differences. We are all part of ONE people, the Arab nation. Look, I have family members with Palestinian, Lebanese, Jordanian and Syrian citizenship. We are ONE people. Just for political reasons we carefully underwrite our Palestinian identity. Because it is of national interest for the Arabs to advocate the existence of Palestinians to balance Zionism. Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity exists only for tactical reasons. The establishment of a Palestinian state is a new tool to continue the fight against Israel and for Arab unity.

A separate Palestinian entity needs to fight for the national interest in the then remaining occupied territories. The Jordanian government cannot speak for Palestinians in Israel, Lebanon or Syria. Jordan is a state with specific borders. It cannot lay claim on - for instance - Haifa or Jaffa, while I AM entitled to Haifa, Jaffa, Jerusalem en Beersheba. Jordan can only speak for Jordanians and the Palestinians in Jordan. The Palestinian state would be entitled to represent all Palestinians in the Arab world en elsewhere. Once we have accomplished all of our rights in all of Palestine, we shouldn't postpone the unification of Jordan and Palestine for one second.

Your logic is impeccable Mr.CaptainKtainer::: You say because I have similar views on a topic and I posted them in and around the same time others joined this freshly public thread, I must be a paid for shill.

Obviously, it can't be that the lines are drawn pretty clearly on this issue and that when a topic dealing with Israel goes public on Fark (from TotalFark) it gets 200+ comments that are essentially "Why do we support that evil Israel" vs. "We get a lot from it and support lots of other countries in a similar way... why hate on the Jews especially vs. Pakistan or Afghanistan?"

/ It speaks volumes about what you consider the other side to be for you to classify your opposition as disingenuous.

Hard to add more emphasis than yours on the ME oil.

We have more energy within our, the US, borders than any other area on earth, but we won't tap it.

Why? For the same reason we usually only get Florida oranges in the NW, it cost more to ship it, which adds to the cost, which allows the price to be even higher.

If we pumped our own energy, Wall Street would have to change 40 years of speculation theory, and that would cost them money.

Plus, we won't be able to jack up the price every time a Sultanate sneezes.

And Taxes, don't forget, that in Seattle, $1.65 of the price of every gallon of regular is taxes.

Because it is of national interest for the Arabs to advocate the existence of Palestinians to balance Zionism. Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity exists only for tactical reasons. The establishment of a Palestinian state is a new tool to continue the fight against Israel and for Arab unity.

A separate Palestinian entity needs to fight for the national interest in the then remaining occupied territories. The Jordanian government cannot speak for Palestinians in Israel, Lebanon or Syria. Jordan is a state with specific borders. It cannot lay claim on - for instance - Haifa or Jaffa, while I AM entitled to Haifa, Jaffa, Jerusalem en Beersheba. Jordan can only speak for Jordanians and the Palestinians in Jordan. The Palestinian state would be entitled to represent all Palestinians in the Arab world en elsewhere. Once we have accomplished all of our rights in all of Palestine, we shouldn't postpone the unification of Jordan and Palestine for one second.


What's your farking point, why do you keep pasting that? Are you trying to use that to point out that only Jewy folks really belong there? Isn't that kind of ironic?

neongoats: We get it guy, you will support anything Israel does, and support no limit to the amount of wasted money, lives and credibility are sunk into it.

Personally, since you repeat it often about "bbbbut you give money to Pakistan!!": fark Pakistan. As far as I'm concerned, pakistan can eat its own gun, and get its money from somewhere else. See how well they can live with a billion screaming hindu fanatics pouring across their border raping everything. Be interesting.

As can Isreal. Iraq, Afghanistan, and the entire region. Israel created it's current bed, they can lie in it without our tax dollars buying them a farking blanket.


That is the problem, none of these countries created their 'current bed' on their own. How much stems from U.N., U.S., European, Security Council actions? Depends on who you ask. Therefore it is a moral question too, not just a foreign relations/military/national security deal.

At least I hope that is some of the thinking our glorious leaders here in the U.S. (hallowed be their kickbacks and campaign contributions) use when creating policy.

Clearly Israel isn't invading Palestine, they are merely driving out the Palestinian invaders who have been occupying Israeli land for the last few thousand years.


Care to explain why "Palestenian land" includes a lake?

Can you explain the methodology of the map?  ie why the empty areas are called "arab"?


the ha ha guy: Would you be happy with a similar plan to give back America to the descendants of the Inuit, Inca, Maya, and Native Americans, while all others are rounded up and forced into highly concentrated cities and shot on sight when they try to leave? Or do ancient land claims only count when it's someone else's land being taken



If the descendants of those people bought land in the US, the federal govt was no onger around, and they voted to start their own country, I would be fine with it.
 
2013-03-18 02:08:25 PM  
Unless something HUGE happens or changes in the Middle East, nothing anyone does or says will change anything. They've been fighting and killing each other for centuries over land, citizenship, religion, and they aren't going to stop because a country halfway around the world keeps telling them "Stop that. Be nice. Stop that". It's practically ingrained into their culture and psyche.

Pull out everything of ours and leave them to their own devices. One day they'll finally end their stupid little wars, but it won't be because America had a hand in it.

White House announces that it is lowering expectations for Barack Obama's Israel trip, presumably from "establishing the groundwork for a lasting Middle East peace" to "not handing over Israel to the Friends of Hamas"

The United States is not located in the Middle East.  Why the fark is it our responsibility to establish the groundwork for lasting peace.  If they don't want peace, who are we to force it on them?

And when did Israel become ours to hand or not hand over to anyone?

Let's see...he allowed Cuba to go Communist.  His planning of the Bay of Pigs invasion was absolutely first rate, that's for sure.  Then of course there was his policy of sending "advisers" to Vietnam.  His lack of support for the Hungarian Uprising in 1956.  Yep, stellar.

At least his golf game never suffered...sort of like Obama's.

NostroZ: Uh huh... yet for some reason those articles do NOT get green lit, only one's about Israel... funny thing about Israel is that everyone is interested in nitpicking it.



Egypt shoots those who actually cross the fence. Those who are killed make a deliberate effort to pass into an area they know to be off-limits.

Israel, on the other hand, announced that the no-go zone was 300m from the fence, but they secretly extended the zone to 1km and shot people who were legally on their own farm well outside of the official restricted area.

I'm not defending Egypt's actions here, nobody deserves the death penalty for merely jumping a fence, but I think being shot after having your home secretly declared a restricted area is slightly more fark-worthy than being shot for deliberately entering a clearly identified restricted area.

That's easy. I don't give a shiat about anyone and anything over there. They've been slaughtering each other over retarded shiat for 2,000 years, and they're never going to stop. Far as I'm concerned we should stop giving ANY of them money and aid, pull our people out, and leave them to their own devices. Maybe they'll finally develop intelligence and stop their baby feud, or they'll completely destroy each other and no more fighting. Either way, the world wins.

They don't need it.

Biggest welfare state in America.

It's pretty obvious that the two of you are lost in WILLFUL IGNORANCE.

For those who prefer to get their opinions from facts, instead of feeling the need to repeat an idiotic remark any time Israel is mentioned; please note the following:

1) Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Egypt all receive either more or close to what Israel gets in US aid.
2) Unlike Pakistan that was hiding OSB, Israel provides positive intelligence information to the US, in addition to an exchange of military technology, some of which is:


    ADM-141 TALD (Improved Tactical Air Launched Decoy)- device used to protect U.S. warplanes from enemy fire.
    AGM-142 Have Nap "The Popeye" - a precise bomb which hits specific coordinates
    Python missile - A major air to air missile.
    M120 mortar - A 120 mm Mortar developed by Soltam Systems.
    SMAW - An Anti-tank guided missile developed by Israel Military Industries, based on the Israeli B-300.
    Cardom - A 120mm Recoil mortar system using modern electronic navigation, self-positioning, and target acquisition.
    Gabriel missile - A sea skimming Anti-ship missile.
    SIMON breach grenade - A rifle grenade designed to breach through doors. A variant is currently in service with the United States army.
    LITENING targeting pod - A precision targeting pod designed to increase combat effectiveness of aircraft.
    International MaxxPro - An MRAP armored fighting vehicle.
    Samson Remote Controlled Weapon Station - A Remote weapon system.

3) Finally, the money that is sent in 'aid' to Israel is used to purchase US weapons, exclusively.  Therefore, the US 'aid' to Israel amounts to a US military jobs program, since the money is used to purchase US made goods.

I know it's fun to hate Jews and keep screaming "why do we help them!", but don't pretend this is done on a moralistic high-g ...


Can they support themselves? Yes.

Is the intelligence being directly sold? No.

They don't need the farking AID money supposed to be for FOOD FOR DEVELOPING COUNTRIES, numbnuts. We can pay for the Eyewitness hotline, I'm all for that, but how about not paying for it with SNAP funds?

Come back to me when you have something substantive to say, and when presidential candidates are giving speeches to the German lobby, or the Egyptian lobby, or the Saudi Arabia lobby. When was the last time a presidential candidate did that? Yet every year each party pays fealty to AIPAC.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2011/10/06/antisemitic-incidents-inc re ase-in-america-for-the-first-time-since-2004/

2013-03-18 03:03:23 PM  

lennavan: The United States is not located in the Middle East. Why the fark is it our responsibility to establish the groundwork for lasting peace. If they don't want peace, who are we to force it on them?


The Allies won WWII, because between the two of them, the UK and the US controlled 75% of the world's mineral resources. Germany lost because it couldn't fight its way to oil or uranium.

The Middle East, currently having mineral wealth and having always been a crossroads of the world, has always been worth keeping an eye on, and always will be, even if only because the Suez runs through Egypt.

Of course.  You see, what a person does and what their race is are inseparably linked.  So, if a black person cuts you off in traffic you and you object, you hate black people.  If an Asian stabs you in the face with an icepick and that pisses you off, you're totally racist against Asians.  If a Hispanic guy farks your dog and wipes his dick on the curtains, you'd better not say anything, or that will totally mean you're a racist scumbag.

I'm not about to sit idly by while this Jew Hating orgy goes wild, sowing falsehoods like "we don't get anything from Israel for our money" or like Mr.lennavan post who's word for word argument is "Israel, and Jews by extension, are singled out for special treatment and praise that other countries are exempt from."

So Fark Off for trying to tell me I'm not responding how you would like to hatred that has led to genocide in the past!


If you're trolling, I applaud you. If you're serious, I pity you.

Are you the guy I asked to ratchet things down a bit last week?

This is Fark, not the UN. People here are douchebags (well, the UN too, sometimes). You're not here to convince people, you're here because your job is boring (or because Starbuck's has free weefees). You should be here to discuss, not make everything about you. You may feel persecuted, but this is not a place to come to feel solidarity with Israel.

This is a place where we happily burn your idols to the ground in front of your weeping children.

You're right, you don't... but much like all KKK members hate African Americans, but not everyone who hates blacks is KKK, the same goes for the "I hate Israel crowd".

Yet, 99 times out of 100 they also hate Jews... the 1 out of a 100 is usually a person who cares about ALL world injustices, like Sudan, which has no Jews, but has terrible things going on there.

But, more often than not, when someone talks about Israel, they are talking about Jews... don't play stupid, you know this.

For someone to care about a country so far away, that has so little to do with their well being makes me think they have an axe to grind.  Simple as that.  If you dislike what America does, if you dislike what Saudi Arabia does, if you dislike what Mexico does, if you dislike etc. etc. etc. along with your dislike of Israel, fine.

But one thing that I cannot stand is when all these alleged humanitarians talk about Israel/Palestine as though there is not a genocide going on in Darfur... as though the only problem they know or care about is one concerning the Jews.

Assume the situation in the Sudan is equivalent to Israel, even though we all know the situation in the Sudan is way worse.

Israel gets 7x the aid.
Obama is actually visiting Israel.
Obama talks about Israel in his speeches all the time.
Israel was a major issue during the last presidential election.  Hell, Romney actually traveled to Israel to give a speech.
At various times the US has promised troops and severe intervention/military responses should a country do anything with respect to Israel.
People get their jobs filibustered in Congress over Israel, not the Sudan.

If you want people to listen to and take seriously the world-shattering wisdom you feel you absolutely must impart to us lowdown booger-picking yokels, try drinking a nice relaxing cup of chamomile tea first.

I'm not here to impress you or care if you WANT to listen to me... Block me for all I care.

When the context of the thread is the conflict in Israel, we discuss the conflict in Israel. When the context is Sudan, N. Korea, China, Somalia, Liberia, Syria, Myanmar, Mexico, or any other region with ongoing conflict or human rights violations, we discuss the country relevant to that thread.

Ignoring the conflict in other regions does not imply support or indifference toward the aggressor(s), it only means that it's irrelevant to the current discussion, just as overfishing is usually irrelevant to a discussion about someone on trial for killing a dog.

This text is now purple: lennavan: The United States is not located in the Middle East. Why the fark is it our responsibility to establish the groundwork for lasting peace. If they don't want peace, who are we to force it on them?

The Allies won WWII, because between the two of them, the UK and the US controlled 75% of the world's mineral resources. Germany lost because it couldn't fight its way to oil or uranium.

The Middle East, currently having mineral wealth and having always been a crossroads of the world, has always been worth keeping an eye on, and always will be, even if only because the Suez runs through Egypt.



While I don't share your view of WWII history at all, I get what you're trying to say and I think your reasoning is spot on for why the US does it.  I just don't find that reason compelling enough to engage in multiple wars and getting in the middle of a religious conflict between other countries.  We shouldn't be the world police.

cameroncrazy1984: You don't have to hate Jews to dislike what Israel does.


That's true. But you have to admit, all the anti-Semites are going to dislike what Israel does, and they add a LOT of noise to the argument, hoping that they can subtly shift it over to hatred of Jews. It happens here on Fark with certain people who show up to every anti-Israel thread and also magically show up to every thread mentioning Jews.

NostroZ: Teufelaffe: Amos Quito: NostroZ: So, you're argument is that AMERICA treats Israel favorably... which no duh, anyone can see.
My argument is that, except for America, the world has a huge bias against Israel.


Have you ever bothered to wonder why?

I'm pretty sure you have me on IGNORE, but just in case you don't...

Because everywhere else in the world except for America is chock-full of Jew-hating Nazis, duh.

I do have Amos Quito on Ignore as a Jew-Hating Baiter.

I see you are out again to bait with questions like "I wonder why everyone hates the Jews..."

I know you're only asking questions and would not dare to say that a whole race/religion is evil and deserves the hate it receives... just asking questions... Learned from the master of ambiguous questions Glenn Beck?

That's true. But you have to admit, all the anti-Semites are going to dislike what Israel does, and they add a LOT of noise to the argument, hoping that they can subtly shift it over to hatred of Jews. It happens here on Fark with certain people who show up to every anti-Israel thread and also magically show up to every thread mentioning Jews.

There's a difference between the religion of Judaism, the Jewish race, and the nation of Israel. But you're equating a dislike of the actions of one to mean an absolute hatred of all just so you can play the race, religion, and nationality cards simultaneously.

I don't recall the United States being attacked or invaded between 1919 and 1939.  Apparently you think it was?


When did I say that?

The US reverted to isolationism in 1919, and the world went to shiat in the next 20 years. It wasn't until 1942 that we were even in a position to say anything about it again.

Given the world situation in 1946, we couldn't afford another 20 years of hiding and three years of ramping back up. In a mid-60s world, we wouldn't be able to afford those three years -- the world had gotten too small.

Someone had to be the world police. The options were the UK, the US, and the USSR. The UK couldn't do it and absolutely no one wanted the USSR to do it -- that left the US. It wasn't perfect, but it was better than the alternatives.

Dr Dreidel: NostroZ: So Fark Off

Are you the guy I asked to ratchet things down a bit last week?

This is Fark, not the UN. People here are douchebags (well, the UN too, sometimes). You're not here to convince people, you're here because your job is boring (or because Starbuck's has free weefees). You should be here to discuss, not make everything about you. You may feel persecuted, but this is not a place to come to feel solidarity with Israel.

This is a place where we happily burn your idols to the ground in front of your weeping children.

Seriously... explain to me how you do NOT HATE Jews, yet believe that ANYONE who supports Israel is automatically a paid for shill???

// To have such intellectual dishonesty as to believe that the only people who disagree with you are paid for.
/// If anyone thinks there is "no anti-antisemitism", just look at the above logic: Either you agree Israel is evil or you're paid for.

Well, yesterday I was accused of being a pro-Israel shill, and today I'm accused of being an antisemite, so that's fun.

I'm calling you a paid Israeli shill because you're acting like a JIDF, you came in at the same time as other people ranting at the same time, and you have the same thoughtless, push-button, multiple-punctuated screed that Israel pays for, complete with ignorant racism while preemptively calling anyone who dares to disagree with you an antisemite.

I'm glad someone has the balls to speak their mind, instead of dancing around their bias.

The burden of proof is not on those that question the American/Israeli alliance. It is on those that support it to continue justifying it.

We see a bunch of negatives that come from it.

Instead of addressing those, you immediately jump in with the anti-semite accusations.

Lets just be clear here. Israel's religion is not the issue, and neither is Israel's 5000 year old culture.

What is the issue is Israel's government. It is wrong. And it is dependent on the USA for funding.

I'm sick of it. My country, the USA, needs its money at home. Not propping up a military dictatorship that only exists because of a stupid mistake 80 years ago by a british foreign secretary.

I don't owe this government sh*t. In fact, it has helped to ruin my country's reputation around the world and continues to do so to this day.

I think it'd be far better if we gave them the tech to have a nuclear energy program - mending fences as well as getting to keep an eye on them (we'll know what they have) - but with sanctions and the 40-year history we have, I'd guess that Iran does their own thing, helped by China/Russia.

NostroZ: lennavan: NostroZ: Please support your argument that Israel / Jews get a preferential treatment... otherwise you sound like a bigot who says "Jews conspire to get a better deal"

Tragedy.  I had a nice long post written out with citations but then I had to work for a bit and apparently I closed that window.  Anyway, here's the brief synopsis:

Assume the situation in the Sudan is equivalent to Israel, even though we all know the situation in the Sudan is way worse.

Israel gets 7x the aid.
Obama is actually visiting Israel.
Obama talks about Israel in his speeches all the time.
Israel was a major issue during the last presidential election.  Hell, Romney actually traveled to Israel to give a speech.
At various times the US has promised troops and severe intervention/military responses should a country do anything with respect to Israel.
People get their jobs filibustered in Congress over Israel, not the Sudan.

If you want citations, you'll have to www.google.com it yourself.

So, you're argument is that AMERICA treats Israel favorably... which no duh, anyone can see.
My argument is that, except for America, the world has a huge bias against Israel.

Please step outside your bubble of the world = America


Fair enough.  I'd rather not step outside my "bubble."  The US has a big problem of sticking its nose where it doesn't belong.  We've got plenty of our own problems to deal with before we start worrying about other countries.  I get a say, via voting, how my own country deals with Israel.  I don't really get a say, nor do I want a say, in how other countries deal with Israel.

The world is not the US's responsibility.  I don't know why you think it is.  What do you mean we "couldn't afford" another 20 years of hiding.  Again, we were not attacked or under the threat of attack.  We weren't about to be invaded.  We absolutely could have afforded another 20 years of hiding.

Why does someone have to be the world police?  And who the fark are we to police the rest of the world anyway?  We're going to tell the rest of the world how to run themselves, how to govern themselves?  Have you paid any attention to our own political system at all and all of the corruption and influence of money on the process?

By the way, if you actually subscribe to the US being the world police, then I imagine you're amazingly upset at the US for its inaction in a whole slew of places.  You're telling me how it was imperative the US intervene in WWII, have you paid any attention to what is currently happening in various African countries?
