Because we like a little bit of sand-locked land better than we like our children?

Well, the US has 100 potential carpet bomb targets to practice on....there's always a positive side!

The spin on this should be fantastic. I'll take a stab at it.

spin on!

You don't know what these people have been through. Haven't you ever fought for something that's rightly yours? They feel betrayed for being forced to give up a fight they believe in. Those ___________ are animals I tell you! There will never be any peace! It will never last!
spin off!

Someone else wanna try?

Ariel Sharon will do what the Illuminati says and he will like it!

Sounds like they need to try the IDF's stress treatment.
 
2005-02-06 12:53:00 PM  
so wait, I'm confused. Do these rabbis enjoy being blown up in cafes? I figured that you know, this would kinda curb the problem

Happily for free discussion, the subject of Israel is one where, no matter what you say, no matter whose side you're on, no matter what position you take or what comment you have to make, you are wrong. Utterly and completely wrong, just like everyone else. This makes things much easier.

That's why they're lame.

american can support israel when they move the fark back to europe and give the country to the native americans. until then, keep 'em from killing each other in as objective a way as possible.
 
2005-02-06 5:31:00 PM  
Yeah well, ye country without crazy zealot types cast the first stone.
 
2005-02-06 5:31:12 PM  
Is really stupid.
 
2005-02-06 5:31:43 PM  
Why does the headline say "Israel" is praying for this? A bunch of _religious fanatics_ who are praying for this. There are a lot of people in Israel praying that the peace process does work. And you may be surprised to find out that there are a lot of people in Israel who don't pray much at all. The religious nuts just grab all the press.

/that would never happen in the US....right?
 
2005-02-06 5:31:53 PM

Only if coexistence were the plan. It isn't. Total domination and elimination of the target population is.

It's a pretty final solution, though.
 
2005-02-06 5:32:45 PM  
let's just say if you can't find Israel on a map, lay off the boilerplate flaming.

The Native Americans lived in Israel? Is that in the world according to Joseph Smith?
 
2005-02-06 5:33:13 PM  
These people never learn.
I have no sympathy for either side.

/gave up on this one a long time ago.

Dawg47 I don know about you, but I am pretty sure my ancestors didn't plan on coming here. Europe would not be the best place for me I don't think....

1. America withdraws its support for Israel

2. ???

3. Profit!

shaunx413,

My sentiments exactly. These people don't want peace. They want to be right. They want to win. I'm all for providing each side with ample nukes and saving the rest of the world the headache of their endless bickering.

crackwhore_the_barbarian

Acually it say "Israeli" Like it or not, thats were they are from. Somethings ya just can't change.
 
2005-02-06 5:38:22 PM  
Let me just say, and I say this as a full supporter of Israel and strongly zionist individual, that those people are a bunch of farking idiots.
 
2005-02-06 5:38:36 PM  
Just trying something. Jews.
 
2005-02-06 5:38:36 PM  
Sad situation, stupid people.

This is one of those times where I wish a benevolent dictatorship would just conquer both countries, and force the people to cooperate with one another. Collectively, both groups are too embittered and angry to actively succeed.
 
2005-02-06 5:39:31 PM  
How the fark do these nuts get any better treatment then the "religious fanatic insurgents" I keep hearing about calling upon their god to punish their adversaries?
 
2005-02-06 5:39:48 PM  
Is it wrong that I hope they get firebombed, or hit by lightning, or something?

That's funny. I could swear that Israel already had ample nukes, and yet somehow, they have managed not to use them in an orgy of destruction.

Hmm, I hope I just didn't bring your whole world-view crashing down. Cause then I would feel very bad.
 
2005-02-06 5:42:06 PM  
If We Gave Everyone A Cookie Eveyone Would Stop Fighting!!
 
2005-02-06 5:43:43 PM  
Israel=asshats with huge military spending and backing from Zionists worldwide
Palestinians=asshats following a brutal religion that should be outlawed. The kids keep a powerful killing machine of an army at bay with freakin rocks. If they had slingshots,there would be another exodus within weeks.
I hope they kill each other off, I really do. BTW archconservatives: the staunchly religious Christian asshat component of your group seems to love Israel because Christianity descended from Judaism. Kinda strange,seeing as how they BBQed your savior. Oh well,what do you really expect from the deep south and midwest.
 
2005-02-06 5:44:20 PM  
To all the people who feel the need to say:

"oh. I have no sympathy for either side, they're both stupid" or some such variation,

You know nothing. Absolutely nothing about the situation. If you did, you wouldn't be able to simplify the whole situation down to an equation a 5 -year-old could understand. If that helps you to conceptualize this issue, go ahead, but don't think that you are giving an actual opinion.
 
2005-02-06 5:44:23 PM  
Yeah, cause giving land for peace has worked so well. Just ask WW2 Europe, Native Americans, and hundreds of other people groups who no longer exist.
 
2005-02-06 5:45:50 PM  
I don't think anyone could possibly be as stupid as these people. They should just take em and their Palestinian counterparts out back and give them the Old Yeller treatment.
 
2005-02-06 5:46:19 PM  
Hey... peace in Israel will cost jobs and reduce foreign aid. War/conflict/terroism is good. Viva la Industrial Military Complex both in the U.S and Israel.

//sarcasm in case any of you farkwads don't get it.

I get more and more sick of organised religion every day.

It's a sad day when you bait a flamewar on Fark on your smoke break and can't get a response...Jesus
 
2005-02-06 5:50:23 PM  
Sooner or later people will have to wake up to the fact that the Settlers and Hamas are on the same side.

It might help if your post was remotely coherent.

People could respond, saying how you misrepresented the situation, or that you don't know what you are talking about. However, it would be kind of like kicking a retarded kid to make him cry. Sure it's funny at the time, but then you feel bad about it later.
 
2005-02-06 5:53:03 PM  
Pulling the settlers out of Gaza is pretty popular among Israelis in general. These guys are pretty far out of the mainstream among Israelis, as far as I can tell.
 
2005-02-06 5:54:29 PM  
Also, what crackwhore_the_barbarian said is pretty much true.
 
2005-02-06 5:54:30 PM  
BeowulfSmith,

Sorry, you didn't bring anything crashing down for me. We've been trying to keep Israel from using nukes all this time. My idea is to equally arm both parties, and encourage them to duke it out.

And since my "world view" as you call it is more of a fanciful pipe dream, I harbor no illusions of it actually happening. Sorry to burst your bubble.
 
2005-02-06 5:54:40 PM  
Crackwhore_the_Barbarian is on to something. It is religious fanatics feel they have a right to the Israel of the O.T. That's what gives religious folks a bad name. In secular politics, you can give a little, because you do not view support/opposition to your views as good or evil, only ours and theirs. When everything's good or evil, you have nowhere to go but the barricades.
 
2005-02-06 5:55:32 PM  
I already posted this in the pot-smoking forum, but I'll say it again.

When I was in Israel, almost all of the people I talked to were pro-peace and thought Sharon was a twat. The only people that were against it were my religiously extreme uncle and his family. It's a little like how the rest of the world views Americans on Dubya and the Iraq war.
 
2005-02-06 5:56:58 PM  
Things would be much better if the Israelis would let the Palestinians open a few casinos.
 
2005-02-06 5:57:07 PM  
hobbstweedle ,

BTW archconservatives: the staunchly religious Christian asshat component of your group seems to love Israel because Christianity descended from Judaism.

Actually, the wackjob conservative Christian right back the Israeli zealotry because they need the Jews to conquer all the holy lands. Only this way can the Book of Revelations come true, the Rapture occur, and Jesus can come marching back down to earth to smite all us unbelievers. Mind you those'unbelievers' also include the Jews who conquered the holy lands and made it all possible. Jesus is one ungrateful mesiah, ya ask me.

Incidentally, the people who sincerely believe this are the same people who have been advising Dubya on foreign policy concerning the middle east for the last four years.

By invitation.

Sleep well.

Jeez, where were all you assholes when Clinton had his sausage in Israel's butt?
