He got wiser as he got older and started to make up for his hard line stances that he was famous for, much to the benefit of those who had been, and continue to be, oppressed by those like his younger self.

This man was a warrior, With Israel since the birth if a nation. In his youth, he did atrocities, misguided by the "need" for security. He was blamed for Sabra and Shatilla, though bear in mind he in no way ordered those to happen. In his later years, his hawkishness slowed and did something noone thought Israel would ever do, give up land without anything in return. Before his stroke, he was getting ready to broker a deal to get rid of most of the settlements, to bring peace. please bear in mind this is like dow chemical will get rid of all chemicals. The man said fark you to the conservatives in Israel who wished to keep constant conflict and attempted to guide a party in the middle, which sadly is a mere shell of itself. This is truely a sad time for me.

Nah. Christian true-believers just tend to get their panties in a wad over famous Jews dying every so often. Its been a problem for a couple of millennia now.


The prophecy of his death bringing about the apocalypse was made by an Israeli rabbi.

Not to mention he has family - they didn't do anything wrong and they are dealing with the loss of a father, grandfather, etc.

I just watched The Little Mermaid with the audio off, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies. I was actually amazed at how lousy the animation was in that film. In the 5 short years between The Little Mermaid and The Lion King, animation techniques (at least at the movie level) improved significantly with stronger emphasis on shading and realistic rendering of environment.

Because diplomacy, under which such gestures fall, required it, and diplomacy is preferable to lots of other things. Notice that South Africa didn't immediately scramble its fighter jets to bomb your renegade post office, either, because the point of the gesture is to say, "hey, South Africa, we're sufficiently on your side in the general scheme of things that we're not going to take advantage of the opportunity to be assholes by  not making a token gesture."

Besides which, as I read the rules, Obama can order it lowered for whatever reason he likes: "In addition to [basically anyone, anywhere, American or not, dying], the president may order half-staff display of the flag after other tragic events." They're canceling  The Mentalist? Lower that goddamn flag.

DRTFA so I don't know if Sharon will get the flag treatment--probably not, since for ceremonial and diplomatic purposes he's been dead for a long time. But there'll be reams and reams of nice flowery eulogies printed out by our diplomats, notwithstanding the fact that Sharon wasn't a plaster saint, because we're not actively at war with Israel and Sharon wasn't literally the worst person ever to walk the earth, and that's what you do under those circumstances.

It's not a mean-spirited joke. Nelson Mandela's headline made him the punchline for an Al Sharpton joke. I mean, shiat, Nelson Mandela couldn't even get top billing in his own death announcement on Fark. I'd say there's a difference there.

NK wants to destroy the US.  It makes a great big deal out of that desire, stating it all the time and in ALL CAPS SOMETIMES.

That said, it has no power to do so.  It's a small yapping dog with minimal ability to do anything more than hurt people now and again.

I see the Palestinians in much the same light in regards to Israel and its existence.  A small yapping dog that won't shut up even when shutting up in its best interest.

That said, the Israelis lost any and all moral high ground when they went out of their way to sabotage and dismantle the 'Nonviolent' Palestinian resistance.

If you don't know that the Palestinians 'did' nonviolent resistance, you're not alone.  Go research it and then tell me how sympathetic you feel toward Israel afterward.

InterruptingQuirk: The prophecy of his death bringing about the apocalypse was made by an Israeli rabbi.

Truly apocalyptic predictions are not generally part of contemporary mainstream Judaism, come to think of it. Its clear Sharon wasn't the Mashiach, and apocalyptic readings of the Book of Daniel were said to be fulfilled long ago. Which Israeli rabbi is saying this? Was it a Messianic "Jews for Jesus" type guy?

NK bombed the US cities for a decade ? sent terrorists to blow up coffee shops and pizza parlors ? NK places itself on top of what is now the US ?
I didn't know that. Either that or your comparison is a joke.

Infernalist: A small yapping dog that won't shut up even when shutting up in its best interest

Yes if you disregard the fact that the palestinians are pawns of countries like Iran, Syria, Saudi-Arabia and whohever else fund, train, sponsor or control them.

Infernalist: f you don't know that the Palestinians 'did' nonviolent resistance, you're not alone.  Go research it and then tell me how sympathetic you feel toward Israel afterward.

Oh i'm quite aware of the history. You mean non-violent like when Israel pulled out every single israeli from Gaza, the palestinians there moved their rocket launchers closer to the border for better aim ?


Nope, I'm talking about the nonviolent protests that were broken up with water cannons and rubber bullets and tear gas.  I'm talking about the early efforts to use nonviolence and were brutally broken up and whose failures were used as excuse by extremists to push the notion that violent protest was the only answer for the Palestinians.

TappingTheVein: themindiswatching: Don't know if stupid or trolling.

Neither. You're the one, like the majority of farkers, who isn't aware of how palestinians are treated all over the arab world with the U.N doing nothing about it for decades, how they are kept in refugee camps in places like Lebanon, Jordan and Syria and how their own arab brethren treat them.


Because Jordan, Syria, etc. aren't actually their real homes? Face it, the instant that happened, the instant the Palestinians lose all legitimate claims to their original homes. And that's what you want, isn't it?

Apparently the majority of palestinians voted hamas, a party with the platform of "death to the Jews" as a running platform. Deal with it.

Google says nothing about that term other than some singer who died a decade ago in some plane crash.

Anyway, the problems in that part of the world are basically because the colonial powers decided to fark with things in the aftermath of the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balfour_Declaration for example, where Britain decided that the Jewish people had a homeland in the land that would soon become modern-day Israel and fark whoever else was already there.

Mermaids release an egg sac into the water, which you would jerk off on. So, basically, do what you were doing with the photo, but crank it out onto your omelette, and that's basically mermaid sex. Very disappointing.

I didn't 'ignore what you said'. I have at no stage said anything to suggest that the Palestinians are not one of the problems. I noted that they are, and the Israeli government is. It seems like you are disagreeing with the latter.

I am just seeking clarification as to whether you are asserting the the Israeli government isn't one of the problems in which case I can determine that you're not worth engaging with ever again, or if that's not what you're saying.

Which government ? like i said the palestinians were offered basically everything they demanded and they rejected it, the current government is currently engaged in peace talks which are worthless for a very simple reason: the palestinians, or more accurately the ones who fund, train, command and sponsor them, are not going to accept the existence of the state of Israel. it's that simple.

That's just Futurama's take on the whole thing.  People get too technical when they look at a mermaid and imagine some scientific explanation.  Let me give you a better explanation.  Magic.  She has a magic vagina because she is a magical creature.

Sounds a little like,"South Africa is a white state. The Blacks need to solve where the Blacks will live."

I have no doubt the outcome in Israel/Palestine will be the same in that regard as in South Africa.

You should consider getting on the right side of history, as hopefully this state of apartheid suffers the same fate as Sharon as soon as possible, given its inevitable eventuality.

And as for being respecful, not gonna happen, not on a site where you have internet basement dwelling dorks who think it's cool and edgy to be disrespectful to something that most people like.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: RexTalionis: Nabb1: RexTalionis: See, Ariel Sharon gets a relatively respectful headline about his death. Nelson Mandela gets one where he's the punchline for an Al Sharpton joke.

Yeah, that's Fark for you.

What's respectful about that headline? It's not necessarily mean, but it's clearly a joke.

It's not a mean-spirited joke. Nelson Mandela's headline made him the punchline for an Al Sharpton joke. I mean, shiat, Nelson Mandela couldn't even get top billing in his own death announcement on Fark. I'd say there's a difference there.

He couldnt get top billing at his funeral!

Selfies and the whacked out signing guy took all the headlines.


And Obama appearing to flirt with that female Danish minister, with the first lady looking displeased about it.  Newsmax still runs a photo of that with the header, "the scandal that will sink the Presdiency".

rzrwiresunrise: TFossor: Ariel Sharon's greatest accomplishment was making the two-state solution not viable!

Way to go, Arik!!!!

The sooner the world gets a single state with equal rights for ALL citizens, regardless of race, religion, and ethnicity, the better.

End Israeli apartheid.  Support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement!

As long as Israel is determined to remain a Jewish state, the apartheid will never end.



The same could be same of those countries that insist on being Islamic states.  There's a bunch of those in that area.

give me doughnuts: fmk040: give me doughnuts: AngryDragon: hoodiowithtudio: This man was a warrior, With Israel since the birth if a nation. In his youth, he did atrocities, misguided by the "need" for security. He was blamed for Sabra and Shatilla, though bear in mind he in no way ordered those to happen. In his later years, his hawkishness slowed and did something noone thought Israel would ever do, give up land without anything in return. Before his stroke, he was getting ready to broker a deal to get rid of most of the settlements, to bring peace. please bear in mind this is like dow chemical will get rid of all chemicals. The man said fark you to the conservatives in Israel who wished to keep constant conflict and attempted to guide a party in the middle, which sadly is a mere shell of itself. This is truely a sad time for me.

You know who else "gave" people camps to live in after taking their homes?


Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon.

The U.S., Canada, South Africa, Spain, Israel, Germany...wanna keep going?


Who has them now?


Oh! Oh! I know this one: Israel.  Canada and the U.S. to a lesser extent.

Yes. Which is why we don't give them billions of dollars of taxpayers' money, sophisticated cutting edge military hardware, nor access to our intelligence at upper levels (including potentially illegal NSA US citizen surveillance data, if latest revelations are true), nor regular use of our UN veto to SOLELY block any criticism at the cost of our own moral leadership worldwide, nor tax breaks for domestic "charities" that support their continued violation of international law, nor not call out our Congress members when they sell out national interests for the sake of a foreign lobby.

There's only ONE country that gets that treatment, despite sharing some aspects of despicable behavior of many other countries, which do NOT get that treatment.

So we should stop enabling Israeli apartheid because clearly our indiscriminate and expensive support allows it to violate international law, perpetuate injustice against an indigenous people, and contribute to instability throughout the region. The same cannot be said about any other country.

Course none of those brag about how democratic they are, or how they treat their citizens equally under secular law. It's pretty well established that Islamic law is the only law. Israel tries to have it both ways: "We're a democracy, but Arabs can never hold a majority in government. Arabs can live where they like in Israel, unless Jews want to make settlements there. Arabs can work where they like, but have to present papers to work in Jewish sectors; Jews, not so much. And hey! Look! We have Jewish sectors! And Arab sectors! With checkpoints even!"

False equivalency is fun!

hoodiowithtudio: we do give billions of dollars to egypt and jordan



Yes, as a bribe of sorts so that those bordering countries (whose governments themselves are not democratic in any way, and hence do not represent their own populations) normalize relations with Israel and hence do not assist the Palestinians in resisting occupation. The bribes to Egypt and Jordan allowed the Israeli to steal/settle/colonize land, as encouraged by Sharon, to such an extent that the two state solution is dead. In any event, on a per capita basis, the bribes to King Hussein of Jordan and the dictator Mubarak, now dictator Sisi after his coup, pales in comparison to Israel.

So even the "aid" paid to Jordan and Egypt is just on behalf of Israel. And we shouldn't be paying it either. Furthermore, it's not like Egypt and Jordan get the multiple other benefits granted to Israel. Well, except that we turned a blind eye to the Sisi coup which should have forced us by US law to suspend military aid. Instead, we just delayed it.

It's all filthy money misspent from the US taxpayers strictly to perpetuate an evil status quo of apartheid, violation of international law, and, including Jordan and Egypt, perpetuation of nondemocratic regimes.

Sharon had an enormous part in establishing this status quo, and was known to brag about his ability to get what he wanted from the US Congress... even ultimately to the point of destroying the ability of imposing a "guaranteed" Jewish majority, leaving Israel as a country wherein 49% of the population rules over 51%.

Pigs get fed. Hogs get slaughtered.

Man, the US is sending Biden to this funeral?

I can't wait for the right-wing blogosphere to explode.  Half of them will be complaining that Obama himself isn't going, the other half will be complaining that since the US didn't send a single sitting elected official to Maggie's funeral they shouldn't be sending anyone to Sharon's either.

Wow, two threads that were open for 3 days have more posts in it than a thread that was just greened 30 minutes ago? You don't say. You must be some sort of goddamn genius.


Relatively speaking, no one gives a fark about Sharon vs about Mandela.

to be fair, some of those camps have grown into real towns and cities now.
