Oh come now you didnt really look very hard into Murdoch and his Israel bent, did you?

en.wikipedia.org...




Political activities in the United States

McNight (2010) identifies four characteristics of his media operations: free market ideology; unified positions on matters of public policy; global editorial meetings; and opposition to a perceived liberal bias in other public media.[104]

On 8 May 2006, the Financial Times reported that Murdoch would be hosting a fund-raiser for Senator Hillary Clinton's (D-New York) Senate re-election campaign.[105] In a 2008 interview with Walt Mossberg, Murdoch was asked whether he had "anything to do with the New York Post's endorsement of Barack Obama in the democratic primaries." Without hesitating, Murdoch replied, "Yeah. He is a rock star. It's fantastic. I love what he is saying about education. I don't think he will win Florida... but he will win in Ohio and the election. I am anxious to meet him. I want to see if he will walk the walk."[106][107] Murdoch is a strong supporter of Israel and its domestic policies.[108

Israel has manipulated and continues to manipulate spy on and play in US politics and policy from before I was born. Every war I have been deployed to in part was because of their government's interference.

All combat veterans of at least the last 20 years have good reason to dislike Israeli government.

I like the people and am friends with many that are from or continue living there. It is their government I can't stand.

Israelis have done nothing to me personally and I dare say that many others will admit the same.

However the same can't be said about their prez, who I believe is truly a snake in the grass.The fact the the Yahoo can talk the talk when it comes to Palestine but when it comes to the latest nuclear talks he says this:



"A deal that is based on this framework will threaten Israel's existence ... The alternative is to stand firmly and increase pressure on Iran until a better deal is reached."


ABC

So here's a man who's armies have bombed the bejeezus out of a neighboring country but the after the recent talks he acts like his nation is an endangered species. I have nothing against Israelites whatsoever but the dribble that comes out of Yahoo's mouth rivals the best in the west.

B) willfully muddying the waters trying to make a point. Which is it?


The question was , what have they done to you . If nothing just say so . If you feel that you have to elaborate why you dont like them , well feel free to do so . Do YOU hate them . Simple question . Yes or no . simple question . This question has nothing to do with the OP , its for my own benefit .


Why didn't you quote where he answers your question and gives you several different things that Israel has done to him?

lol normally the trolls make me laugh but you just suck at trolling bro.

Now time to slap myself for feeding you.

First let me start by saying i am not pro Israeli , but in the same breath i can say that i hold no ill will towards them . But some here seem to have an almost pathological hatred for them . They seem to be blamed for everything from the creation of Isis to the 2 rabbits banging away in your backyard being a Zionist plot to take over backyards worldwide . This is a question about what they have done to you . Nothing more , nothing less .England stole Australia away from the Aboriginals , the US from the native Americans , New Zealand the Maori s so lets not go down that path . Russia in the Ukraine , China in Tibet and US in Cuba . So unless you are Palestinian and had your house destroyed dont bring the occupation thing up . If they have harmed you in any particular way please speak up . If it is going to be the usual Israel hate , well i have heard that before . This is a genuine question . Play nice people .


First, yes real anti-semites exist.

HOWEVER, those who legitimately question Israel's actions towards the Palestinians IS NOT "anti-jewish" or "antisemitic." The moment someone says that, it shows that they are either brainwashed, low intelligence, or manipulating.

Second, I have many friends who are Palestinian and Lebanese, that live now here in NY. They have experienced some of the issues.

Third, some of us work in international affairs, and it is our job in part to judge these situations.

Fourth, I have many friends who are either Israeli or Jewish but not from Israel. My questioning of Israel has nothing to do with Jews in general, just as my calling out George Bush on the Iraq War has nothing to do with "hating all Americans."

Your argument "if it doesn't affect you then stfu" is ridiculous and immoral. Martin Luther King Jr. said that an injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere.

By your logic, I should just ignore racism against Blacks because I am white. Ignore the holocaust against Jews because I'm not Jewish and not from Europe. Etc.

Epic fail.

If wanting to understand is trolling then i am guilty as charged .


Dude, i respect it if you legitimately do not know what has happened to the Palestinians.

But to many across the world, the Israelis (NOT WORLDWIDE JEWS) are oppressing the Palestinians, taking their land, etc.

It's that simple.

What I do not condone is those who actually do seem to hate all Jews, or who seem to blame Israel or Zionists for every ill under the sun. That does sound to me like hate and bigotry.

You know i really was hoping to see reply s along the line of . They havent done anything to me personally . If you have a dislike of Israel it is none of my business . But if they have directly had an influence on your lives , well then i am listening . Russia , bad things happening , but i dont hate them . I guess i was not born with hate .


First, we believe they are committing crimes against Palestine.

Second, as an American lots of our tax money is going to support this. And our ostensibly elected officials support it cart blanche, provide weapons, etc.

Therefore, it IS my business.

Stupid post. The only people who can be anti Isreali are those who are victims! With that kind of pathetic selfish self centered logic the world would descend into tribalism.

You are an idiot. Sorry mods but sometimes idiots have to be named and shamed.



Exactly, this kind of attitude is EXACTLy how the holocaust happened. People in Germany ignored what was happening or, as evidenced by lots of social science research, simply followed evil orders because of the power of the command and also because "it isn't happening to me."

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me." -Martin Niemoller

Your attitude is exactly how atrocities happen and continue, because people like you advocate for simply turning a blind eye to a minority being oppressed or killed.

At least 1,195 Israelis and 9,128 Palestinians
have been killed since September 29, 2000.




A new study rising from the ashes of a flawed old one estimates a half million Iraqis died as a result of the U.S.-led invasion and occupation.


Numbers dont stack up in my opinion . But the victors get to write the history books . Right



Um... the "victors" that are "writing the history books" are the US/UK and Israel.... The losers are Iraq and the Palestinians in this discussion...

People like you are "faith-based" in everything. Facts cannot daunt you. Your beliefs such as pro-US or pro-Israel, are purely based on a kind of Fox News or Conservative "faith," that is impervious to evidence. It must feel really comfy being in dat bubble.

The answer that you won't receive is, "hating on Israel is the chic thing to do these days, that's why."

Keep watching, because it's going to get worse.

I'm not gonna beat around the bush with the israel-zionist angle, I simply am not fond of jews in general.

Yeah I know, how anti-semite of me...

I care not that they are jew whether racially or religiously, their actions throughout time speak for them. They do things that piss everyone in the world off, then have the nerve to cry victim when called on it. And to make it worse, they wait awhile for the situation to die down then proceed to do the same crap all over again.

Israel only brings the underlying problem to the world stage which is good, but the Palestinian people are sacrificed for this to happen. We as species spent soo much time mastering our surroundings while the jews were mastering us. All in all an un-winnable situation for us all, including themselves. I am just being honest folks, if we all got together once and told them to knock it off, we maybe can move forward in a meaningful way.

I've always found it a bit hypocritical how the same people who enjoy bashing Israel about their "human rights record" tend to be the same people that defend Russia (terrible human rights record), Iran, etc. Gay people are persecuted severely in these nations, as are political dissidents, yet they get a free pass simply because they aren't "western" while Israel has a thriving LGBT community and political parties that aren't mainstream enjoy the freedom to voice their opinions without being locked up. Where Israel draws the line is on those who refuse to acknowledge their right to exist and those who would use terrorism to further their "cause". Yet that is somehow viewed as "human rights abuses".

The double standard is absurd.

In general, I've found it is pointless to have a discussion with people who are incapable of viewing 2 sides to a story. They have chosen the narrative that suits their preconceived notions, and there is nothing that will sway them.

Generally, there are 4 things that people love to hate on ATS (in no particular order):

1) Israel
2) Christians
3) "Western" geopolitics and governments
4) Police

Why does israel have to have done something to me personally before I can comment?

Are you suggesting that I should not be permitted to comment on what Israel does unless it has done something to me personally?

You do not appear to be committed to the principle of freedom of expression at all .

There's a difference between a hatred of Zionism, Israel and Jews in general.

I criticise Israel for its human rights violations and its illegal occupation of a people and their lands. I criticise Israel for its elitist mentality and its attempts at influencing the affairs of other countries. I criticise Israel for its attitude and continuing expansion into lands which do not belong to it.

In the end, it doesn't matter what Israel has done to me, personally. Their crimes against humanity affect us all, and the Palestinian people who are living under a military occupation need help in speaking up against Israeli crimes.

You seem to assume you know a lot about me , you know nothing about me . If you were a psychic you would soon be on the streets with a tin in your hand . And i doubt you would see that coming . I am not pro Israel . This post was about trying to get an idea of how many people have had something personally done to them by Israel . If that was the start of the hatred or dislike if you will . I doubt very much if i could change anyone's views , nor should i try to . However i find it ironic that not one person has said anything about Hamas lobbing rockets over the border into Israel , who started that is a chicken and egg thing depending on what source you want to believe . They are not firing those rockets for self defence , they cant hit crap . Maybe if they stopped who knows Israel might as well . One thing is for sure , fighting needs to stop before peace can begin . I have added a little video . The title is misleading as they ask both sides . The man at the 10.56 mark is the answer to the problems i think . Perhaps if he was in charge of both Palestine and Israel .


If you can be bothered watching at least go to 10.53 , this video asks both sides . The title is misleading .
