Arafats should not be the measuring stick to which all muslims are compared. He has a christian wife, has kissed the popes ring, and is really really short!
2001-12-25 1:46:42 AM  
I'm sure the man knows what he's fighting AGAINST, but what is he fighting FOR?

Hopefully boobies

How farking arrogant of Sharon. I hate him and I hate zionists.
2001-12-25 1:49:20 AM  
which brings up a good question.. if a tree falls in the middle of the forest, and hits a mime, does anybody care?

Bethlehem is a very sad place these days.
2001-12-25 1:58:25 AM  
Oh god, not another Israel vs. anti-Israel comment article. Could we all keep our posts here of a humorous nature? Like:

That Arafat really knows how to rake in the gifts

Funny see, and not offensive to anyong (well, almost anyone). Please don't start a hate thread, we've been through this way too many times.

Vil, hoping for thread peace on Christmas

The Israelis and the Palastinians haven't worked things out?

I, for one, am surprised.
2001-12-25 2:01:58 AM  
I'll call a verbal Christmas ceasefire if the zionists in power in israel will email me in the next twenty minutes and promise to stop the military occupation of the Palestinian homeland and the economic and social subjugation of its peoples until after Christmas is over also.
2001-12-25 2:03:43 AM  
Well . . . that's not going to help any.
2001-12-25 2:04:15 AM  
If you want a serious discussion of the Israeli Palestinian conflict, please feel free to e-mail me. Just don't clutter what's meant to be a humorous thread (just look at the title) with anything. This offer is for you Mr. Watson and for anyone else who feels the need to vent about it.

Vil, trying to keep the peace

The more I read about Arafat, the more I like him. The more I learn about Israel, the less I like it. Does Israel really have any basis for their belief that Arafat could, with the wave of his hand, prevent Palestinian extremists from blowing shiat up?
2001-12-25 2:14:11 AM  
There's nothing funny about the title of this thread. But I will shut up now. I said what I wanted to.

Here's a quasi tasteful joke for y'all then:

Q: If Tarzan and Jane were jewish what would cheetah be?

A: A fur coat


btw-I'm not anti-semitic, some of my best friends.....
I just don't like to see the strong bullying the weak.
2001-12-25 2:15:55 AM  
Exactly Scrotar. The British gave up blaming Gerry Adams for every splinter group action years ago. Israel should look into this also.
2001-12-25 2:21:06 AM  
I think they should settle this like men, no holds barred ladder match at wrestlemania 2002!!!! Sharon vs. Arafat! "Its gonna get nasty tonite!"
2001-12-25 2:24:12 AM  
What really ticks me off is the ammount of cash that the US pumps into Isreal every year, part of the "foreign aid" that should probably be going to some kids without food, rather than buying more Apaches so Isreal can protect it's bulldozers as it goes after more settlements.

here's a link
2001-12-25 2:24:47 AM  
arg... diddn't link..

let's try that again

2001-12-25 2:26:24 AM  
Oh little town of Bethlehem how still we see thee lie.
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by.
Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting light.
The hopes and fears of all the years will rest in thee,
yeah right!
2001-12-25 2:30:07 AM  
Is the world blind to what the Israelies are doing? I mean just cuz they have "suffered" so much doesn't give them the right to do some of the shiat they do. I mean they kill innocent civilians for the actions of radical groups. Is it really fair when fully armed troops in apache helicopters take on a small palestinian village? I feel another Holocaust coming on, the jews dont know when they have it good. They are pushing their luck a little too far. I used to wonder how these people came to be so hated in history and blamed for all the worlds problems. Now I see why they are so disliked.
2001-12-25 2:36:23 AM  
yikes Freak, be careful about liberal mixing of jew and israelite. While most israelites that live comfortably are jewish and all settlers that are pushing Palestinians off their land are jewish, jews at large cannot be blamed for problems with zionist bastards. Ignorance like that WILL cause another holocaust. Jewish people are as good as anyone else, CHristians, Muslims etc. The real jackasses here are the israeli military, the israeli government and the settlers.
2001-12-25 2:42:20 AM  
My New Year's resolution for 2002 is to become an anti-semite. Sharon has made my discision easy for me.

First they call Arafat insignificant, inconsequentual and then 10 days later elevate his status and draw world attention to this situation on Xmas Eve. Fark'n can't have it both ways.

Palistinian throws rock with sling shot circa 10 AD; Israeli turns Palastinian into pink mist circa 2001 helicopter gun ship.

Sorry LordWatson, your right. I of course wasn't referring to the Jews living elsewhere in the world, I didn't make that clear. Im not judging Jewish people in general, I dont hate people based on religion, color etc. I am just pissed at the practices of the Israeli governemnt and military. I mean they are proud of pushing around poor villagers. Its disgusting and noone will speak up for fear of their friends in high places.
2001-12-25 2:49:07 AM  
Zeon: Why does your link have a title on that says that an atomic bomb went off in Israel with no further explanantion????????????
2001-12-25 2:52:09 AM  
LordWatson: Examine the URL carefully. It's not the real CNN.
2001-12-25 2:53:45 AM

Woulda been pretty scary had it been true. Nice trick Zeon.

arg forgot you couldn't use >> signs, which I generally put my quotes in.

It's actually "Troops Prey, Hunt for Bin Laden Continues" or something.

Dont worry about it LordWatson blame todays society in which we just cut and paste without even taking the time to examine a url.

1) us invades israel, occupies for a while, shuts up israeli war hawks.
2) anti-terrorism diplomacy gets WAY easier.
3) iraq gets fat cluster bomb in ass.
2001-12-25 3:20:35 AM  
Hell, 43%, they wouldn't even need to go that far. If they just said "We support a Palestinian Homeland" and threaten Isreal with a complete withdrawl of military support if continue their current war/genocide-mongering, the US could bomb just about any place but Mecca.
2001-12-25 3:36:28 AM  
Freak - Is it really fair when fully armed troops in apache helicopters take on a small palestinian village?

uhh... one word... afghanistan.
2001-12-25 3:39:53 AM  
Robin, what?
2001-12-25 3:40:29 AM  
43% - Are you serious? US attack Israel? Israel is in the top5 countries for military power, this aint no afghanistan. I hope everybody realizes that an attack on Iraq (or israel, even tho it would never happen) would not be a single-digit-casualty rate like the taliban. We're talking about a real country with real atomic power who isn't afraid to use it.
2001-12-25 3:41:32 AM  
freak - lemme change your quote around for you...
"Is it really fair to be dropping smart bombs by the thousands, while the enemies are carrying aks left over from the 80s and hiding in caves with their goat?
2001-12-25 3:43:51 AM  
Robin, they didn't use apaches in Afganistan. A single they are AA meat.

Besides, the difference is in how it is acted out. Some of Isreal's actions are starkingly similar to what the US did in Vietnam.

"Uh, we think it's possible that there is a chance that there might be a VC guy somewhere in this village... better burn it down, beat up all the civilians while you're at it."

Robin, if the US wanted (for some reason completely unknown to me right now) to take out Isreal, it could just stop giving it any support at all.

Considering basically every item that the Israeli army has is US made/bought (with a few exceptions, such as the UZI), their army/economy would eventually collapse. The surrounding Arab nations would be more than willing to help tear apart the scraps.

Iraq now a days would definatly be harder (they learned that air power is important, and that those 50-odd years the US had to practice it's open field tank-manuevers paid off). Probably the smartest thing to do would be to heavily finance all the opposition groups, and occasionally give them an air strike or two.

nobody usully cares about what i say
but i must state that it's no fun being america's pet either

Dat Israely Guy
2001-12-25 4:21:08 AM  
I dont know why I should even bother considering all the great responses to Robin already but I will anyhow. The U.S. doesn't have to lift a finger to hurt Israel. All they have to do is withdraw their support, both financial and moral. Once everyone knows Israel is on its own then its gonna be a little game of dogpile on the israelites. If noone resorted to nuclear weapons or other weapons of mass destruction then Israel wouldn't stand a chance. I mean they might be a strong military power now due to U.S. aid but the arabs outnumber em like 50 to 1 and they are willing to sacrifice themselves by the thousands to erase Israel.

Your one confused retard DIG. You think I was trying to glorify the USA? Im not anti-america but I sure as hell aint pro-america. I decide my opinions on a case by case basis. America was wrong for what it did in Vietnam, the actions thus far in Afghanistan are okay. Support of Israel while it continues its current policys is wrong, and so on. Ya dig?
2001-12-25 4:47:52 AM  
DIG, it's not like Freak is saying anything untrue, and I don't really detect any real swagger in his posts. Believe me, I feel for Israel, and I have been worried since Bush took office that support would be withdrawn, because Freak is right. If America were to withdraw support, for some reason (the reason would have to be something out of a Tom Clancy novel, though) then Isreal would be taken over, nukes or no nukes.

As far as I'm concerned, Arafat is a big part of the problem, but I don't have a clue what 'removing' him would lead too. Although presently I don't see how the situation could change...
2001-12-25 4:51:44 AM  
I wonder how many more years Isreal can continue to use its "remember the holocaust" excuse to stomp anything that isn't jewish into complete oblivion. It's a good excuse, "nazis tried to kill us so now we get to do the same to muslims!" Since anyone who speeks up against isreal is an anti-semite, it won't be too much longer until the only palestinians left will be in a jerusalem zoo. Sorry palestinians, you are an endagered species, and nobody will help you.
2001-12-25 5:02:54 AM  
(i can just FEEL that people will take this one the wrong way)

you know, i cannot speak for all of israel (or even for the jews in israel)
but i do know that not everyone is happy with the currant situation. a friend of mine once said "i have not asked for support and i sure as hell never asked for interference, why dosn't the americans mind their own business?"
to which i replied "you can never change that, we will always be their business"

2001-12-25 5:07:07 AM  
Hoosier, get a clue.

Israel doesn't need any excuses, read up on the 1967 and 73 wars.
It's a tinny coontry literally surrounded by Arab nations who would like nothing better than to wipe out all the non-Arab citizens. Five times a day, every day, in Mosques accross the Arab world, they pray, pray to God, to Alah, to kill all the Jews, to drive them into the sea.

And don't for a second think that the Palastinians are being victemised by the Jews alone - they are pawns in the much larger game. Arab countries like Saudia Arabia could be taking care of the Palasinians, but they help to keep them living in squallor, to keep them in the news, and to keep desparet enemies of the Jews in the holy land.

The whole thing is a huge mess, and blaming any one group is awfully short sighted.
2001-12-25 5:10:47 AM  
Here's a question for all of you anti-Israel folks: How is Israel's attitude towards the Palestinians any different from the United States' attitude towards the Native Americans?
