Gaza-Israel Ceasefire: Prison Conditions on Gaza Lifted

Postby GreecePwns on Wed Nov 14, 2012 4:55 pm

As if penning the Palestinians in the world's largest prison wasn't enough, the IDF decided they might as well repeatedly stomp on their throats while they're at it.

are those the attacks where buses of civilians are blown up and the explosives are packed with ball bearings and nails?

They don't need to do that. They can rain death from above with drones and other aircraft.

I read this and I was all like "f*ck you GP" and then I realized I voted for Gary Johnson and can be sufficiently smug.

Carry on.

Wasn't this a response to some rocket attacks or something?

It kinda sorta works like this Scotty: Israel operates Gaza like an open-air prison. They control all materials and people moving in and out. The Palestinians, having had their land taken away and continually considered inmates and lesser human beings by the Jewish population, respond how any sensible population would: fighting to take their land back and remove Israel from it. This is usually done by Hamas through rocket attacks. Israel sees this as an act of war and responds accordingly.

Of course mainstream political discussions in America operate based on this: Israel operates Gaza. The Palestinians respond by fighting and try to remove Israel from it. This is usually done by Hamas through rocket attacks. Israel sees this as an act of war and responds accordingly.

Because if anyone in Congress dares point out the rest of the facts, the Israel lobby will ensure they don't see the light of day come the following election.

But this is all unimportant, because the very nature of the formation of Israel (through land forcibly taken from the Palestinians) makes the existence of Israel invalid. The belief that the Jews are a chosen people that deserve that specific land (Zionism) is an invalid belief as well. Heck, the Zionists even turned down offers to form their nation in Kenya or Uganda because apparently that land wasn't good enough for them.

A good post by GP. As I read the article, in response to a resistance attack that killed 0, Israel killed 5 non-combatants. IIRC, didn't the Nazis kill 10 civilians for every SS trooper that was killed by resistance fighters?

I'm not good at math so I don't know how to represent 0-5 vs. 1-10. Either Israel is only 50% as bad as the Nazis, or is 100% as bad as the Nazis, I think?

Why and how is the Isreal lobby so in control of our election results?

Let's start with the fact that 99% of Congress is already Zionist, some vehemently so.

The Israel lobby includes the Jewish population in America, the entirety of the neo-conservative movement, Evangelical Christians, etc. etc. In other words, a group so awash with cash that they can easily influence any election they want to.

And let's say the token anti-Zionist is elected, will their opinions ever be heard when its 537 vs. 1?

Israel used a precision strike to take out the military leader of Hamas. Hamas responded by indiscriminately launching rockets into civilian neighborhoods (as they have done thousands of times before). Let's quit acting like these two groups of people are morally equivalent because they clearly are not!

Of course they aren't, no one's pretending. The Palestinians are not the ones who took away Israeli land through the use of brute force.

The Israeli civilians, by their enthusiastic support of penning Arabs into a prison, their participation in the violent seizing of Palestinian land and their racist ravings of "demographic threats" - literally the fear of a growing Palestinian population - (which has led the IDF to destroy schools and basic infrastructure) are morally beneath Palestinians, who fight back in response to their land being taken away.

The stop just short outright slaughtering the Palestinians in order to not be condemned by the international community elite (namely the US), whose quite acceptance they depend on for their very salvation as a state just as apartheid South Africa did.

Israel's operates espionage targeting the US more frequently than any other country, and Israel has a history of killing American civilians. How many times has Hamas done either of these? How about Fatah or the rest of the PLO? Zero. And you want to call Israel our greatest ally?

They certainly aren't morally equivalent.

I always find it amazing that patriotic Americans are content with their country being relegated to nothing more than the obedient, barking dog of a tiny desert nation. Israel would throw the U.S. into a wood chipper without a second thought if they thought it would benefit them; but the U.S. is willing to lay in the middle of traffic for Israel --->

It is a sad but proven fact that the Israeli government also has obtained secret U.S. military technology which Israel has sold to other countries. For example, after the U.S. sent Patriot missile defense batteries on an emergency basis to help defend Israel during the Gulf War, the Israelis seem to have sold the Patriot missile technology to China, according to the U.S. State Department’s inspector general. As a result, the U.S. has been forced to develop a whole new generation of missile technology able to penetrate the defenses China has developed as a result of the Israeli treachery.
