An issue most people don't care about*

*politicians and evangelicals aside
 
2020-06-30 11:27:28 AM  
Good, we need more accountability for evil people in our world. The "settlers" are farking evil, as are anyone who supports them.
 
2020-06-30 11:34:27 AM  
Long overdue, is what it is.
 
2020-06-30 11:36:06 AM  
Good.
 
2020-06-30 11:58:14 AM  
Doing the right thing is only considered foolhardy by fools.
 
2020-06-30 1:09:34 PM  
Anything that perturbs the Israel humpers won't get a complaint for me.
 
2020-06-30 1:14:53 PM  
Great. Republicans hear she's trying to stop an Apartheid State, which means they'll see this as an attack on them.
 
2020-06-30 1:57:04 PM  
Fearless. She knows the potential backlash.

But somebody has to do something about Israel.

Sometimes doing the right thing is career suicide.
Doing it despite the risk is brave and inspiring.

/Plus she's hot
//What!?!? She is!

Ahh Israel, America's only real welfare queen.
 
2020-06-30 2:00:51 PM  
Good, it needs to be done, but there are a bunch of apartheid lovers in both parties that will unite to fund oppression like they always do.

AdmirableSnackbar: Good, we need more accountability for evil people in our world. The "settlers" are farking evil, as are anyone who supports them.


Not sure who is more evil.. all the countries that kicked their Jews out and forced them to go to Isreal, or Isreal for making space for them.


Anyhow, AOC, the junior rep from New York seems to be trying to scuttle her political career.
 
2020-06-30 2:01:08 PM  
Good for her.

/waiting for Pelosi or Chuckie the Shoom to throw her under the bus

I agree with all of this.

SpectroBoy: Fearless. She knows the potential backlash.

She knows the usual accusations of "anti-semitism" are going to be flying freely.

She knows that that is bullshiat and won't be bullied by it.
 
2020-06-30 2:02:13 PM  
not to belabor the point...but she rocks.
 
2020-06-30 2:02:18 PM  
Foolhardy, since she is from New York City. She might lose a big voting bloc in her own district. This is not a fight she can lead. there is no lack of causes to lend her voice to. No lack of injustice to correct. Sometimes it is best to pick one's fights.
 
2020-06-30 2:02:42 PM  
We should cut Israel's aid regardless of the settlements. They are a first world country with a functioning economy and military, let them fund their own defense.
 
2020-06-30 2:03:42 PM  
I like doing the right thing, but I'm afraid she's shooting at a 1,000-meter target when all the 5-meter targets are trying to kill us. Aside from Obama breaking the color barrier in the Oval Office, she's the best thing to happen to politics in my lifetime, and this country needs her to stay there. Since she just won her primary and her seat seems reasonably safe, this is a good thing.
 
2020-06-30 2:03:44 PM  
She just crushed her primary.  She has nothing to worry about this cycle.
 
2020-06-30 2:03:54 PM  
FTFA: "The letter, parts of which were previously leaked to the media, was condemned Monday by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee as harmful to America's interests ..."

And by "America's," we, of course, mean "Israel's."

dwrash: Not sure who is more evil.. all the countries that kicked their Jews out and forced them to go to Isreal, or Isreal for making space for them by moving the previous occupants to outdoor concentration camps.


FTFY.

Anyhow, AOC, the junior rep from New York seems to be trying to scuttle her political career.

Seeing how the crazy pro Israel democrat in the next district only just got stomped by a progressive, I'm guessing the people in their districts don't all care as much about this issue as the bible beaters and republicans do.

So you are saying that they get to now kick people out? Like they have been doing for over 70 years? The original residents have no rights in your view because something something justice?
 
2020-06-30 2:04:25 PM  
I know a possible way to get the GOP to stop forking out our tax dollars to Israel.

Tell them that thanks to all the savings to their Defense Budget with our money, Israel can afford universal health care, paid university for students and an abortion system given for free to all women there.

/ Who am I kidding, the GOP will STILL defend the spending.
 
2020-06-30 2:04:33 PM  
Unquestioningly supporting everything someone does does not make you an ally or a partner, it means you're their biatch.  Good on her, and let's all laugh at the reflexive cries of "ANTISEMATIZM"

I'll go ahead and assume that she doesn't have a bloc of voters that are particularly devoted to AIPAC pushed policy.
 
2020-06-30 2:05:04 PM  
The countries which have to absorb the angry people displaced by annexation might have a missile or two with which to express their displeasure over such a situation. Do the Israelis really want to pick a fight like that right now?

Who are the original residents?   The ones the Ottoman empire imported there to occupy it?

Yeah, look at that tight primary she literally just won, what a nail biter...
 
2020-06-30 2:07:49 PM  
Good.

Whatever else your problems with Israel, annexation is a bad, stupid, racist, nationalist decision made to save the skin of a corrupt, venal, power-hungry racist, and it's going to get people killed.

2020-06-30 2:08:23 PM  
Good. And what's kinda surprising, no one else seems to have noticed that there's a leadership vacuum in the U.S. on this issue.

What's also kinda surprising is that Trump hasn't simply told Netanyahu to do whatever the hell he wants. They want us to believe there's a debate of sorts going on between him & Pompeo & maybe the odd general or two about whether to let Israel start carpet-bombing, or not.

If they're going to call you antisemitic any time you level the slightest criticism of Israel - and they will and they do - you may as well go all out.

The correct answer is the Canaanites. They are the original residents so Israel should be given to Lebanon where their descendants still live.

Yeah, I remember when that did not happen in the US.  I also remember when the US started pumping billions of year into a welfare state so that they could spy on us, steal tech and sell it to the russians.

Yep, I feel real guilty for things that did not happen in this country about another country who has been biting the hand that feeds them for decades.

Israel is not a friend of the US.  They never have been.  They never will be.
 
2020-06-30 2:11:29 PM  
The letter, parts of which were previously leaked to the media, was condemned Monday by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee as harmful to America's interests before the statement or its signers were finalized.

I keep on forgetting Israel is the 51st State and it just needs some living room.

Night Train to Wakanda: dwrash: Who are the original residents?   The ones the Ottoman empire imported there to occupy it?

Rome dominated Israel during the birth of Jesus and up until Islamic rule from 638-1099 and then Crusader rule from 1099-1291 then Islamic rule again and from 1291-1517 later Ottoman Rule from 1517-1917.

Its a part of the world that has been the most fought over in human history (that we know about).

Unfortunately, might makes right in that part of the world and I don't think its ever going to stop.
