Enemabag Jones: But I am not sure why the US is allied with Israel so much?


Honestly? Because Jews in America have been convinced (without much evidence to the contrary) that Europe has pretty much washed their hands of the region, and if the Arab states around Israel decided to try and steamroll over Israel (the whole "push them into the sea" rhetoric) the Europeans would shake their heads sadly and say "that's too bad" while all the while sighing in relief that that mess is over with. This terrifies Jews the world over, since the memory of what it was like in the world without a safe haven is still way too fresh. American Jews have therefore made it well known that keeping Israel a free, Jewish state is priority number one for their vote and their money, and America is the only country where the Jewish community has the clout for that threat to work.

If you can find anything in the Quran remotely comparable to 'Jews committed DEICIDE by killing God and for that they are forever cursed' then please post it.

Or alternately if you can find any Quranic passage that calls "the Jews" the "Children of the Devil" I would be interested in seeing that.

Fart_Machine: It's a bit more convoluted than that.


That wasn't very convoluted.  He publicly paid lip service for political gains, while stating to his confidants a goal of destroying christianity in Europe.  Okay.

Here's what his homey Goebbels had to say in his private writings..

On 8 April 1941, Goebbels wrote that Hitler 'hates Christianity, because it has crippled all that is noble in humanity." He wrote on 29 December 1939, that Hitler viewed Christianity as a "symptom of decay" and added his own opinion: "Rightly so. It is a branch of the Jewish race. This can be seen in the similarity of their religious rites. Both (Judaism and Christianity) have no point of contact to the animal element, and thus, in the end they will be destroyed".
Clergy, nuns and lay leaders were targeted, leading to thousands of arrests over the ensuing years, often on trumped up charges of currency smuggling or "immorality". Goebbels led the Nazi persecution of the clergy. In 1933, the Nazis established a Reich Chamber of Authorship and Reich Press Chamber under the Reich Cultural Chamber of the Ministry for Propaganda. Dissident writers were terrorised. The flourishing Christian press of Germany faced censorship and closure. Finally in March 1941, Goebbels banned all Church press, on the pretext of a "paper shortage".

Jews, like everyone else, most are fine people.  But I am not sure why the US is allied with Israel so much?


Because the bible clearly says the Jewish State had to exist before Jews can build the Third Temple which, upon completion of said temple, Jesus will swoop down from the sky, rapture only a very select few American evangellies and fundies to heaven where they'll prance with rainbow-pooping unicorns forever, then God will burn alive each and every man, woman and child on earth of the Jewish tribe via the firery pits of hell for refusing to believe Jesus was magic, followed by burning alive in hell of the other 6,999,999,001 men, women and babies on earth who didn't know or don't believe Jesus was magic, because God loves you and why are you so blind to not see that!!!

You sicko


Actually, that was one of the best parts, knowing that the scene was supposed to be historically accurate and that the Goebbels were in a position where they felt they had to kill their own children before they killed themselves. When you consider how many millions died because of Goebbels, it feels just that they had to suffer so much at the end, knowing that their legacy was truly gone in every meaningful way as they died. They brought so much horror to the world that it is nice to know that their lives ended in some of the worst horror imaginable.

Eh, people take pictures with assholes all the time. It's called politics. I had my picture taken with Ted Kennedy when I was younger--one of those things where I knew a guy who knew the Kennedy family, and it would have been incredibly rude for me to say, "Senator, you're a murdering douchenozzle and I refuse to be seen in public with you."

Doesn't mean I had any use for the late Senator, agreed with his politics, or thought he was remotely useful (he was riding on his more useful, and sadly, assassinated and long-dead brothers, coattails right up until the day he died) as a Senator or good for the country. It was something I did out of politeness and a refusal to embarrass my friend in public.

Pamela Geller's group is not a Jewish organization, it's a far-right Islamophobic organization. It's also considered a hate group according to both the SPLC and the Anti-Defamation League. The majority of American Jews do not subscribe to the extreme views of Pamela Geller.

Kevin72: While the ad's appropriateness for 2014 is questionable, its historic truth of 75 years ago is not. The concentration camps in Croatia run by the Muslims with Hitler's blessing actually grossed out even the Nazis who checked it out. The Nazis were into efficient impersonal mass murder. The Muslim run Croatian camps featured individual torture including that of kids.


Yet my grandma, who had spent time in Hitler's labor camps, was perfectly OK with her daughter marrying the child of a German immigrant.

Almost like the sins of other Germans didn't mean jack f--king sh-t even though that happened between 3 and 4 decades later.

I am not sure why we feel obligated to provide aid (other than perhaps food to 3rd world countries because it is the decent thing to do) to Israel or any of the core Muslim countries... I also feel we need to stop being the world's police force. The UN is supposed to serve that function with their "Peace Keepers" right?

There's an argument that food aid actually continues the cycle of poverty.  How the fark are farmers supposed to make a living when people can just get food for free?

Same goes for shipping old clothes off to 3rd world countries.

Exxept backwards. We pay Israel about 2 billion a year in military aid so they don't destroy Egypt, Syria...everyone else nearby... possibly the moon in case Hitler is still there.


Right and partly right.

1) Buy off dictators in the Middle East (see Saudi Arabia, Egypt) and support them because a democracy would mean the election of militants who hate Israel *and* us.

2) Sell them American weapons. (Profit!)

3) Give Israel more weapons so they still have superiority and to appease their knee-jerk American supporters. (Speaking as a non-Zionist Jew here.)

4) Sell the Arabs more weapons to feel safer re: Israel. (Profit!)

I'm waiting on the Stop-ALLl-Foreign-Aid folks to get caught up on this.

/I'll be popping some corn in the meantime.


Well, I'm on the "Stop giving shiat away" side. Just a thousand ways to screw up the local economy by disrupting economic mercantilism. Free grain and milk? What will they do next year when we don't send any and the local farmers went broke because of the free food. Much better to go over and pay for construction that pays wages with which locals can buy food and stimulate the economy.

We've even seen the supply of free skag disrupt the heroin trade in parts of Europe. Addicts can get a free supply if they ask for it, thus the dealer can't afford to recruit new users.

Not really. He was raised Catholic but never attended mass after leaving his mother's house. He hated the Church but recognized its huge influence on German society. He subverted that. The OSS believed he was planning on eliminating all Christian churches in Germany after the war. Speer said he hated the church in private but used it to his own ends in public.
