Latinwolf: 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.


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.

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.

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!

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.

Israel is a Jewish state.  The Arabs need to solve where the Arabs will live.


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.

Yeah, that's Fark for you.

No, no, no. You see, that headline was funny because they're both black and black people all have to answer for one another. If you don't think it was funny, you're just being a fussy pants.


The only thing wrong about that was that it got greened instead of the funniest headline.

How does the old saying go?  I've never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure.

Man, the same thing happened when Trayvon died.  People kept posting pictures of when he was a kid.  This is the internet, we can find pictures of Ariel all grown up, can't we.

my ass that was a "stroke" that he suffered just when he was about to withdraw settlements in the West Bank.

Just like old man Fred Koch died in a "hunting accident" right after signing over the business to Charles & his brother.

Fark just made a joke headline out of Sharon's death and you think it's relatively respectful.

Bwaahaaahaaa....

I think some of them just like to shout ZERO SYMPATHY. Just like school officials like to shout ZERO TOLERANCE. Makes them feel good.

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.
