As far as your support of Palestine. Karl, sometime you just have to pick a side and do your best. I keep seeing you supporting the Palestinians (Philo as well). Maybe you read this today in the news. Mashaal, the leader of Hamas, has just effectively re-iterated that he will not negotiate the fact that all of Israel is theirs, and that the Zionists need to move elsewhere. This is the link to the Arab version, of course, somehow the Jewish version, whereby they feel that full translation is that they will be snuffed, is more alarmist.


Just because you say "Choose a side" doesn't mean that's two. Two wrongs don't make a right and often a big wrong creates another wrong. If some country attacked the US in earnest and seriously messed up a few cities here, we'd probably nuke em and kill tons of civilians.

Hamas was elected in Gaza partly in response to the lack of justice and progress being made for the Palestinians. If Israel hadn't be continually increasing settlement activity on Palestinian land, and oppressing them in other ways needlessly, I might have more sympathy for them.

As it is, Both the leaders of both sides are evil, and so I support new leadership on both sides

Peace

Karl, can you show me a link to where the Palestinian leaders have said anything resembling "We want to live and let live" or "We support Israels right to exist". I believe that Abbas has said it one time. Yet the rest are quiet about it, and in fact, insist on the opposite.

It seems to me, that the Jews don't feel like being massacred: and they take steps to avoid it. They want security and life.

If you have links indicating that the Jews are ignoring that, I'd love to see it.



"I don't believe that accurately reflects what Hamas has just said. What they've said is that they will never acknowledge the right of an Israeli state to exist within the borders of pre-1946 Palestine. But in practically the same breath they basically say that they are willing to live with an Israeli state they still will not recognize so long as it's based on the '67 boundaries.

Semantics maybe, but important semantics to them."

"The charter states that "our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious" and calls for the eventual creation of an Islamic state in Palestine, in place of Israel and the Palestinian Territories,[1] and the obliteration or dissolution of Israel"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamas_Charter or

http://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/hamas.asp


They forgot to mention any borders in there. Polite way of saying, move along to the ovens bitte in my mind......Maybe you have some links wherein the Hamas leadership has renounced their charter or say that peace with Israel or the right of any Jew to live is of the slightest importance to them? They lost the war, several in fact and it's still on: and they are paying the price. They could have radically different, and better, lives had they chosen differently.

Words, like those in the Charter or Mein Kampf, are not to be ignored unless it's at our peril.

I wasn't referring to the charter but to the remarks by the leader of Hamas' during his recent visit to Gaza. But, if I were Palestinian rather than Irish, I'd for sure be a member of Hamas given this map:

Of course! Because if you were a jew-hating member of Hamas you would crush little jew-skulls with you rifle-butt in the name of freedom.

Jews realize this sh#t and chose to defend themselves from the murderers. So f*#k off!

Anytime a jewish girl has her brains bashed in they call it some form of liberation or legit retaliation.

When Jews defend themselves, it's hate. Meh!

Do you understand the concept of, "Defensible borders and ,to the winners go the spoils?"

Israel never asked to be attacked. Nor did they provoke it. It was jew-hate that inspired the attacks in 45 and 67.

The Jews won! Fair and square!

How did Israel provoke the attacks on their Statehood in 1945-46, or in 1967? Explain.

EDIT:
Its a two way street blue.


No it's not~! Jews are targeting innocent arabs? When they find them alive the bash their skulls in?

NO. Israelis take wounded Arabs to Jewish hospitals for top-notch care.

It's amazing that just because you guys spout certain sh#t you here, you think it's true.

Read the Israeli links as well, the ones that Amnesty and Human Rights Watch never get back to you on.

And US liberals actually support the Palestinian's seceding from Israel - the same as we support wing nuts like you seceding from the US

See, we agree on something!

Does this coincide with liberals supporting the deposing of Mubarak as ruler of Egypt in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi?

And Assad for "soemthing else"?

Libya is all cool now, right?

Yes of course, in Repub Fantasy World, this is exactly what happened - liberals knew who would be replacing Mubarak

And you of course formed that opinion based on sourced, attributed journalism from reputable, internationally respected media outlets, which you can cite, and not out of the same orifice you excrete your solid bodily waste from


Um, no. Your president fomented this. Remember, the Arab Spring? This is on you idiots! You called for this. You OWN IT!!!!

People like me told you f*#king idiots this would backfire!!!! Who would fill the power--vacuum??? Idiots!

Couchmaster,

A couple of points...

It's not "Muslims vs. Jews" in Palestine, there are many Christian Palestinians that are subject to the same humiliations of occupation. As for Hamas, Israel is as much to blame for Hamas' rising influence in the region as anyone. Even ignoring their early support and funding as a religious foil to the secular Fatah, they have continued to play the various factions against each other to ensure that there is no "credible partner" to negotiate with. It's no surprise that helping make Fatah ineffectual has led to Hamas gaining power.

They unilaterally declared themselves a state (just like they decry the Palestinians for doing)

Remember, there were less than 10,000 jews in Israel at the turn of the 20th century. England was the colonial power who ruled that land there (as if they had ANY right to do that, or give the land to people who weren't even living there) very convenient for everyone but the Palestinians.

and of course they won and got the spoils, only by virtue of being supported by modern western weapons

Peace

Karl
