I love how he thinks they have to "recapture" Gaza, like they don't have it totally blockaded to begin with.

And I bet he thinks that white phosphorus works well on nasty stains.

At least he's no longer the foreign minister.

Perhaps they could smash all the windows in Gaza. Reducing the glass to small pieces, or shards. They could probably manage it in one night. A 'shard evening', if you will.

Israel has a real need to create enemies. With an us-vs-them mentality based on external threats they hope to keep their citizens in Judaism and prevent modern trends such as loss of religion and marrying outside which is destroying Judaism in Europe and the US.

The biggest existential threat to Israel is a majority non-Judaistic population (be it Muslim or those without religion) and all of their policy is based to combat this.

Back before Israel blockaded Gaza, what was happening?  Zero rockets?  Just curious about how well it works when Israel holds up its side of the bargain.

vernonFL: I have a solution:

The problem with that is:

Israel: Lifts blockade honoring their part of the agreement


Gaza: Most hold up to their part but you still have groups which will use the opportunity to import heavier weapons...then use them because hey...those filthy Jews deserve to die

Israel: Launches air strikes in retaliation

Gaza: Help help Israel is blowing us up they're killing innocent people that are launching rockets into Israel.

Repeat for the last few decades

The only thing that will stop this from happening is for the US to tell Israel to stop responding or we'll stop sending them money. Same thing for Gaza.

I spoke three years too soon. My bad.

Israel will be first country to receive F-35 stealth jet fighter

The first of 20 versatile, single-engine F-35s, ordered by Israel in October 2010 at a cost of $2.75 billion, are scheduled to arrive in 2016 at the earliest, but the Air Force is already setting up a new infrastructure to absorb the stealth jets.

Not Israel the right wing in Israel, so the people will know why they need them. Same here.

Yea but firing rockets all the time isn't exactly helping the Palestinian "we just want peace" bit. It's like the Palestinians are trying to be just violent enough to piss off Israel but not enough to accomplish anything.

complete total 100% deficit of trust.  Those guys on hunger strike in Gitmo?  They've come to the conclusion they're going to die there and there is no hope of release ever.  The Palestinians lost everything in 1948, and I don't think many are under the delusion they're ever going to get it back.

But Israel can't separate them out. Israel can't make peace with Palestine if the Palestinians can't or won't stop groups from firing rockets. It may be just a small segment of the population but unless Palestine is willing to put in the effort stop them then there won't be peace. I'm not saying Israel is on the side of right here but unless Palestine stops groups from firing rockets then there's no point in even trying to negotiate.

Except that the reason why there's a blockade is that they use the lack of blockade to get more rockets to fire them at us.

Sure, but that would require a centralized Palestinian government with both the legitimacy and means to stop the rocket attacks, and Israel doesn't seem to be too keen on that.

If at any point they had chosen non-violent resistance they wouldn't even have to ask for a state, we would have given it to them.

imontheinternet: Why does Israel always consider itself exempt from the concept of limiting itself to a proportional response against a weaker opponent?


There is no such thing as 'proportional response' in war. What, they fire three rockets so we fire three back? How stupid is that. The only response in war is a quick and decisive one that stops all the fighting, otherwise you're stuck in a perpetual cycle of deaths, attacks and retaliations.

Yeah, Israel is the reason why Hamas took over Gaza violently (when Fatah members ran to Israel asking for shelter and protection from Hamas), and why Gaza is being treated like a totalitarian state where Hamas execute people at will (two 'collaborators' were hung a few days ago... yeah they brought back public hangings) and they just assassinated a leader of Islamic Jihad in his house two days ago.

That's all Israel's fault.

The weaker side makes a largely ineffective rocket attack using crude weapons, so you respond with an air strike on a munitions dump or some other high-value military target and call it a day.  That's how it's supposed to be done under international law.

Bullshiat it does not say that under 'international law' in any way whatsoever, and that's not how any country would act.

You really think that if mexican cartels were firing a few rockets a month at an American city that the US army would just bomb a few things and do nothing else?

If Paris had received more than 30,000 rockets and mortars in the last decade, the French would be doing what you're saying? The British? The Germans? The Russians? The Canadians even?

I've lurked and seen you use ample 'shiatty rhetorical appeals to emotions' as a device to get things greenlit or to advance your argument.  You'll also walk back from a losing argument stating something was 'a joke' or something to that effect.

If you really want some sort of debate, you might want to rethink your mile long ignore list.  I'm sure you'll breathlessly argue that each and every one deserves to be there.  I'm sure if they (all) showed up here, you'd have one hell of a time defending yourself.. if the servers didn't crash from the traffic.

Maybe I'll get on the ignore list for this.  Who knows?  All the same to me.  I'll just go back to lurking.

imontheinternet: Also, seriously? You think that if Israel invades and wrecks Palestine, this time will be different and the conflict will end?


If we enter, and kill the majority of fighting Hamas members we can find, seize and destroy their weapons and destroy their infrastructure, yes the conflict would end, at least militarily.

Do you see Hizbullah doing anything? They've already stated that if they had any doubt there was a 1% chance Israel would react like it did in 2006 they never would have started up shiat with us. They haven't since because they are dead scared we'll go back and wreck their shiat even worse.

The only thing that stops conflict is complete surrender.

I don't put people on my ignore list for disagreeing with me, I put them there for trolling me in other threads, bringing Israel in threads that are about something else, directly insulting me above and beyond what is normal Fark insults and spoiling movies.
