Jesus, what a bunch of whiny farksticks. I'm tired of their bullshiat. Fark 'em, let them resolve the issues they've created BY THEMSELVES.
Never seen a country that was made up of nothing but attention whores. You don't pay enough attention, they throw a fit, you pay too much attention, they throw a fit.

And I think we need our messianic money back, the ungrateful pieces of shiat.

liam76: Marcus Aurelius: Genocidal maniacs?

Given that the population of Palestenians is growing faster than their own, it is the exact opposite of genocide. But fro soem reason I bet you feel ok justifying your lies...


what_now: No, why does Hamas and the PLO act in this way?

Because only the most voacal violent groups gets outside support from surrounding Arab States, and since Israel's creation the surrounding Arab states have wanted it gone.


what_now: You can't look at this in a vacuum.

I am glad you think that way. So you probably recognize how a one state solution wouldn't work.

what_now: When a generation of people is displaced, and their children have no hope of education or employment, they will be violence.

Why isn't there violence in the myriad of surrounding Arab countries where Jews were booted out of?

Gaza and the WB had no universtities before Israel took over.

The life expectancy, literacy, and infant mortality have all improved greatly. Prior to the Gaza war they were better off then many of the neighboring Arab states in those regards. Prior tot he second intafada when working in Israel was common they had one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

The Palestinain Israeli conflict has always been driven by surrounding Arab states, and until they want it to end, it won't. Unfortunately since it makes a great smoke creeen for any conflict or problems they have and provides an excuse to keep people in camps for generations they don't want it to end.


And black slaves were worse off in Africa than after they arrived in America, too, right?

They'll be respectful again when we get a new president who's respectful to them.

I'd be happy to leave Israel alone with out military or civilian foreign aid, without the US' guaranteed security council veto, and without the implicit promise that the US will back Israel up if things degenerate.


Or they can stfu and stop interfering in our domestic politics.

The two state solution is a farce.  Neither side really wants it, nor is it even feasible.

We need to recognize Israel for what it is... not two states, one under siege and the other occupied, but one state locked in apartheid.  I'm unsure when that transition happened, but it happened sometime during the last 50 years of occupation.  The Gaza strip and west bank are annexed in all but name.

The only other way forward is to ignore the reality on the ground long enough for Israel to finish ethnically cleansing their territory through the slow process of encirclement & settlement.  This would be a great disservice to three million or so people currently living in the Gaza strip and West Bank.

HotWingConspiracy: And I'm using your words to show that you're a racist that thinks lesser races need a paternal figure to control them.


Maybe he (and others like him) think this, because the US plays paternal figure to the inferior Israel. Lord knows Israel wouldn't be where IT is without US and Western involvement and support.

HotWingConspiracy: And I'm using your words to show that you're a racist that thinks lesser races need a paternal figure to control them.


The claim was that they get no education.

The fact is that the literacy improved, and is now on par with neighboring states, and that they never had a university until after Gaza and the WB was no longer under control of Egypt and Jordan.

I never claimed they needed a paternal figure, just that the person was wrong about the situation.

People can toss out any outrageous lie about Israel, no matter how out of touch with reality it is, and you won't say a word, as long as it makes jews look bad. I use facts to prove them wrong and you flip out and pretend I am saying BS like they need a paternal figure (above) or that they are some type of benevolent rulers that have done nothing wrong. You can take no correction of Israeli actions at face value and must twist it into some BS propaganda to distract from reality, it is pathetic.

HotWingConspiracy: Every single thread you're in about the MidEast supports me. Though you've tried (and largely failed) to tone it down once people started calling you on it.


You repeat these claims again and again, yet have never backed them up.

The people, like you that accuse me of that BS, have no problem bashing the catholic church when it comes to sex abuse, but point out problems in Islam? Oh noes, must be a racist.

HotWingConspiracy: I never said anything about genocide.


Directly? No, but you are always there to support clowns making those claims.


HotWingConspiracy: The situation they're in is horrifying enough


Yet you need to make up BS analogies comparing it to slavery?

Alassra: You know, I have never considered myself a global isolationist, but some of the comments by world leaders have started making me rethink that we have the wrong partners.

I'm reading "Escape from Camp 14" and I think the world should be putting more effort to getting rid of the Kim Il family and putting someone in power there that won't treat its citizens like mules and rid them of the camps. Spending time on people who just don't want to get along in Gaza / Palestine / Israel? Waste of time, money and global interest. No one is doing anything about Syria, Sudan :: sighs :: donation efforts only go so far and the US can't solve it all. Get us out of Afghanistan, Iraq, Qatar and let's re-purpose the manpower and money to somewhere else.

You can't look at this in a vacuum. When a generation of people is displaced, and their children have no hope of education or employment, they will be violence. This has been true since human beings started living in groups of more than 10.

What they seem to perceive as 'obsession' is called working hard and it's also a little something we call America's 'can do attitude'.
It's one of the things that makes America exceptional. Now, does the state of Israel have a problem with American exceptionalism? Because if they do, that would mean they've become secret Muslim fascists and they should just make peace with their neighbors because they have so much in common. But if I've misunderstood and they do in fact accept that we are exceptional, then it would be foolish not to take our advice and finish the damn peace agreement we are proposing. Check and mate.
