Good Question...
May 15, 2018 - 06:33pm PT
t would take a, "Wall of Text", to explain, Delhi.
And as everyone here knows, the libtards don't like or read WOTs.

Wow you have that much in common with our President?

And I was the one asking. If you are only concerned with the "libtards" reading than you missed my question.
Anyway I always though (well at least in the past) that you Cosmic were a reasonable and somewhat intelligent guy which is why I'm trying to get a handle on how someone of your intelligence could support him.
I suppose I'm presuming too much?

As far as this

On a more serious note (actually I am serious about ^^) how anyone could defend the horrific actions of Israel onto a bunch of rock throwing people is beyond me. Right or wrong shooting people like that is f ucked up. If you're pointing a gun at someone ready to shoot 'em because they're throwing rocks at you...bunch of pussies

As a thought experiment, it would be interesting to see if your view changed after some good sized rocks were slung at your head (if you were still alive).

Well, being as I've had this ("experiment") experience happen, I still feel the same. But, just to go with the question a bit further...if I was hunkered down behind a wire and rock wall at a distance and I had the firepower of Israel at my disposal...nah, my view would still be the same. Thanks for asking.

Just wondering if you have spent anytime in the Middle East? Do you know any Israelis (notice I'm asking Israelis not Jews)? Do you know any Palestinians? I ask because as a thought experience if you haven't it would be interesting to see if your views changed.

cheers

And finally thanks Sierra LR for that post.

Rocks missed? What if they didn't?

Ever heard of stoning? If not, I think you can see some examples on the Internet carried out by your friends in the ME.
But you'll tell us all you've seen it a dozen times and it's no big deal, I suppose.

That's all you got?
Sheesh blah, I thought you had more to you than that.

Hard to defend such action isn't it?

Apparently.
Good catch :-)

To be clear though I really do want to hear opposing views. It is tough though pulling it off around here.

America should STOP giving that aszhole criminal terrorist Bibi nutcaseyahooo billions of dollars every year.

He should be thrown into prison for all the crimes he's committed in all the countries around the world.

He's committed huge crimes against the USA and the brainwashed Americans give him billions of dollars a year.

Bibi is just like a Nazi Hitler in sheep's clothing.

Pure lunacy of st00pid Americans ....

The Palestinians are doing more than simply throwing rocks. They're allegedly trying to break through the border fence. The Israelis have made it clear they will shoot anyone attempting to do so.

So, I suppose that we can expect ICE to shoot any mexicans that climb over his beloved wall*

WELL! That's certainly worthy of summary execution.

My Hebrew teacher at IU was a veteran of the Six-day War. A very interesting and intelligent guy. He did not deny that Israel was seizing land owned by Palestinians. He said they were justified in doing that because they were putting the land to more productive use.

While some said they would abide by official calls to keep the demonstrations peaceful, others talked about their enthusiasm to break into Israel and wreak havoc.

“We are excited to storm and get inside,” said 23-year-old Mohammed Mansoura. When asked what he would do inside Israel, he said, 'Whatever is possible, to kill, throw stones.”

Two other young men carried large knives and said they wanted to kill Jews on the other side of the fence.

Okay

Wow

Reality check

Yes indeed

WTF

Babies have been shot


But even shooting to kill the grown men is being justified because they got too close to a fence and MIGHT have a knife hidden on their person . . .

StuporTopo was long ago a shocking disappointment because I discovered what kind of worms inhabited my fellow climber’s brains . . . But such disappointments seem to never stop . . .

"He said they were justified in doing that because they were putting the land to more productive use."

wasn't that the rational of the colonialists who took north America from the 'unproductive' natives who were only managing to have a happy society?


November 29, 1947

UN recommended that jereselum was to be a "corpus separatum"

international city administered by the UN. israel didn't yet exist. the Zionists were perfect content with this because they didn't want the problems with an age old religion city with muslims Christians and jews all had significant investments in


Mitch Jeserich has a great interview with marsha cohen on this history you can find in the audio archives at kpfa.org

Trump is a genius at international affairs, just ask him.

The whole North Korea game would be phucking hilarious if nuclear weapons were not involved. Those two buffoons have so much in common, I would not be surprised to see them engaging is some sort of primal social grooming when they meet.

Yeah. Breaking through the fence in order to get back into their own country.

The country that was stolen from them.

Actually, they don't have much in common. Trump is not the leader of a country that was incinerated during the Korean War. Trump is the leader of the country that did the incinerating.
