Why not stop spewing your own version of hate........The IDF and Hamas have both committed war crimes.....
They care not one whit for either sides civilians...in fact seem to relish killing each other off whomever they find to kill.....kids adults old people , its all the same to them...its just a numbers game for the press.....a giant suck on the worlds sympathy tit.....
They can all go to hell in a handbasket for all I care...Time for the people to rise up and fling off the yoke of hatred on their own ........
Over 2000 dead and many more maimed....for three deaths.......an entire city of 1,8 million people without water, electricity, or basic medical treatment.....many Tens of thousands homeless,for three dead Israelis....
Sounds likew NAZI repression tactics to me....you kill one....we kill 100

Lets not forget that one side is being squeezed into an ever shrinking piece of land! I think they have a right to be a little bit annoyed! maybe even the right to fight for their lives?
"They throw rockets"
Maybe they'd stop if they could have some of their land back!

Dont worry poster there still a thread on ats that was proven a hoax, on top where the op still defended is lies by spewing more venom at people sickened by the death of so many inocent, i was told i am pro hamas because im pissed off at the death of children.
Just understand that ats has a big right wing oriented membership, and dont lose sleep over it.

Thousands of Israeli kids have not died. Palestinian kids have. Many of them. But Oh it's because Hamas uses them as "human meat shields" and blah blah blah. Hamas has Mossad connections. The land was inhabited before the European Zionists got it through the Balfour declaration and moved in. Then they push all the inhabitants onto a little plot of land through murder, bulldozed homes, etc. and when the inhabitants strike back they call it "terrorism". Just who are the terrorists here, really? At the very least, for now, Israel needs to return to the 1967 borders. Then war crimes trials. No more aid money for Israel from America. The world should take all of Israel weapons except for guns. Same with Hamas. No more excuses. Zionism has been exposed. The world is watching
The kidnappers were speaking Hebrew.
they have been without basic human needs and food and supplies and electric and water and sewage for so long, thanks to Israels "humanitarian" actions, they are beyond weak now.

I started a topic on this situation, hardly no replies, and shocked by some, although, I should know to expect it by now.
I want it to be hope for a good thing. We'll see.
I think there is a great deal of hope starting to shine.
Now, to thinking about racism? What is racism?
Again, I am speaking to you as a person. Fully respected. I value your opinion. You are person, just like me. Remember, I said "unknowingly". Does it fit?
Racism is the belief that all members of each race possesses characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
I don't see that as racism, besides, if they are "Chosen People," it only makes sense to ask what they were chosen for. Historically, their life has not been pain free.
Do you see this happening in this situation? Whenever I see "We are the Chosen People", is that a form of racism? Does the bill fit? There is additional words inside Racism, that also can be linked and further dived into.
I'm glad to hear that you are so attached to your lovely bride. If you were in Israel, I suppose you'd be treated the same way that the other 20% of the Arab non-Jewish population is treated. I suppose you'd be jumping in and out of shelters.
If my wife was Arab, how would she be treated? She is me. We are one.
You misunderstood me. I was saying that Israel and Hamas can not be judged as equal in this situation. I was not talking about either individuals or races. An individual can say Hamas is better, or Israel is better, but I don't think saying they are absolutely equal in righteousness makes sense. It is not a racial thing
Now, that also gives me pause to what you said as well, as in your post above, you implied something, by claiming you do not "see how they are the same." Do you see the impression that you may be leaving with others? If you agree with it, is that a form or racism? By the textbook? Yes, it would be.
I have difficulties with you here. You might recall the Thugs of India, their culture dictated assasination as a noble skill, and they killed many.
We are all Homo sapiens with rights. Including the Palestinians, even if we do not agree some aspects of their culture, they are still people. We can disagree with that culture, and try to show a better way, but we have no right to force that. None. They need to learn it for themselves.
Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs.

Am I calling them backwards? But I might note that Muslim countries are far behind in obtaining Nobel Prizes in the Sciences.
There are many moderates, not extremists, who are very forward thinking. Research some of the projects going on in Muslim countries. I was shocked at some of the environmental care being considered for an alleged backwards people.
I would love to visit the Holy Land one day. Visiting Jerusalem. It is the City of Peace. In peace, and tranquility giving appropriate homage to our heritage out of respect.. and enjoying their rumored warm hospitality offered from both sides. But I can't do that, can I?
Respectfully, in my opinion I think this conflict is fundamentally fueled by racism. A claim, a fraudulent claim that crumbles after astute investigation, has been made.

I wonder if the Palestinian could even read the confession he signed.
We know the kidnapper spoke Hebrew, I wonder how the kidnappers Hebrew is??
Either way, 3 bully loudmouths get caught on the wrong side of the tracks...err concentration camp wall, and get scrubbed is nothing new.
You don't see very many white racist types hanging around in Harlem, especially after dark.
Besides, I thought the reason why the terrorists started in on Palestine was the rocket attacks.
Kind of makes the deaths of these 3 a non issue doesn't it?
