Oh you have friends in Israel?

do not forget:


- it is Ahmadinejad from IRAN calling for Israel's annihilation

- it is Rafsanjani from IRAN who called on the Muslim states to use nuclear weapon against Israel - and NOT the other way.


- And to answer your question:

Yes, you should be ashamed to applaude calls for the destruction of another people.

It says the UN cant reverse one of its resolutions in the UN charter? Thats a new one. And international law....ahhhhh the thing belligerents drag out when things dont go their way...and conveniently forget when they break it themselves.

Yes I do but I said "your nation" wants to bomb them. Hence I was saying I have close friends in Tehran. Remember the Israeli ultimatum to the Americans? Stop Iran's nuclear programme or we will. Wheres International law there? Im pretty sure bombing a country that has not attacked you is against international law, right? Or does Israel not play by the same rulebook as you insist every other country abide by?

He said it should be "wiped from the map", not annihilated. You're being deliberately duplicitous.

So what? What about the Samson option? What about Israel's clandestine nuclear weapons? How about the Israeli doctrine of targetting Islamic holy sites with nuclear weapons? You cant paint one side as completely evil when the Israelis are just as bad.

Huh? Can you drop the duplicitous twisting of my words please. I never said "should I be ashamed because I want the destruction of another people". I said should I be ashamed because I am angry YOUR COUNTRY wants to bomb Iran over its SUSPECTED nuclear weapons programme.

subz,

the United Nations had emerged from the ashes of the Holocaust (Kofi Annan) - Did you ever read the UN Charter?

What do you think

How it comes, that ALL members of The United Nations Security Council unanimously condemn the remarks about Israel attributed to H.E. Mr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran?!?

Think twice, please.

No, we don't want.

In interview with Newsweek Teheran-born (Israels) Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz says,




‘I believe for the time being the diplomatic channel is the main one, There is a chance that by putting pressure on Iran, a decision in U.N. Security Council will delay or stop Iranian nuclear capability...


Mofaz: A Military Option Is Not on the Agenda

You asked me how it was possible to "wipe Israel off the map" without bloodshed and abiding by the UN charter and International Law. I gave you a way it could happen. I never said it WOULD HAPPEN did I? Israel was created with the pen and it can be removed by the pen. OK?

Your confusing two issues. It might arise from language differences but you are trying to bait and switch me like a pro, it would seem. You didnt ask me for a probable way Israel could be "wiped off the map", you asked me how it could be done and I gave you a way.

Mofaz: A Military Option Is Not on the Agenda

I beg to differ, Riwka:


"They won't be stopped unless they are convinced their programs will be destroyed if they continue," [Arieh Eldad] said.
Yuval Steinitz, chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said the best hope was for the United States and other major powers to make it clear to Iranian leaders now there was "no chance they will ever see the fruits of a nuclear program."
"Threats of sanctions and isolation alone will not do it," said Mr. Steinitz.

The Washington Times: Israelis urge U.S. to stop Iran's nuke goals

"Threats of sanctions and isolation alone will not do it,", I dont know how you interpret that but I see that as an ultimatum: bomb the Iranian nuclear programme or we will.

So yes, your country (Israel) wants to bomb a country where I have close friends (Iran). Hence my anger at the lies and belligerance spewing from some members here. We are not playing a game here, you are calling for the bombing of a nation based on suspicion and unsubstantiated accusations. People will die and my good friends are in the potential firing line and I wont sit idly by and read trash talk coming from Israelis, Americans, British, Australians, Iranians or anyone. This is not a bloody game!

Of course threats of sanctions will not do it.

The deeds matter: IRAN has to SHOW the world that it fully suspend its uranium enrichment-related activities

Wheres the bloodshed and death with a UN assembly vote that calls for the dissolution of Israel? I think you'd find the people who would be carrying out the killing and bloodshed would be the pissed off Israelis. But then that wouldnt gel with the whole victim persona you've got going, would it?



Originally posted by Riwka

Like I said, with a vote in the UN Assembly on whether to dissolve the Jewish state of Israel or not. If Israel could be created from a UN Assembly vote it goes without saying it could be dissolved by the same process, no? Or is the sanctity of Israeli land more important than Palestinian land 50 years ago?

Quite, so you've just contradicted the statement made by Shaul Mofaz. You quoted Mofaz in a vein effort to show that Israel wants to pursue a diplomatic only solution to Iran's suspected nuclear weapons programme. Yet you've just shown that threats of sanctions will not work. What does that leave up the diplomatic sleeve?


Originally posted by subz

Of course Israel wants to bomb Iran. There is no evidence supporting American claims that Iran is going for nuclear weapons. Israel then wants to forcibly deny Iran nuclear power due to spurious claims of nuclear weapons. If Israel had evidence that showed Iran was going for nuclear weapons, now is the time to share it with the World. If not, then you can only construe the threats of Steinitz as aggression.

Why should I read it again? You've contradicted it yourself and I've shown you quotes from the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that say otherwise. How can you sit there and argue something so black and white as Israel's intention to forcibly deny Iran its NPT approved nuclear programme based on nothing more than unsubstantiated rumour.

Subz,

Just do it - sit down, click on one of the images and start reading the facts.
It is worth it.

Riwka I've already read it thank you. You've assumed wrong and your arrogance is showing through clearly, ok?

Im not about to sit here and be lectured to about how the UN Charter works by an Israeli. Do you want me to list all the resolutions critical of Israel that the Israeli government has ignored? Shall I list all the resolutions critical of Israel that have been vetoed by a single veto from the United States?

Your nation is a rogue nation, you only preach about abiding by the United Nations rules and regulations when it suits Israel. When Israel wants to break the rules and flout international law it does so. I suggest you get your Knesset to read the UN Charter and bloody start abiding by it!

Ok, Great. Then, let's start.

  • You know about the use of force. It is barred by

    Article 2(4) of the UN Charter, which prohibits "the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state."


  • You know that under the UN Charter, there are only two circumstances in which the use of force is permissible:

    • in collective or individual self-defense against an actual or imminent armed attack (which is under Article 51 of the UN Charter)

    • and when the Security Council has directed or authorized use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security (Council decisions embodied in Chapter VII resolutions, that are binding on all members)

Yes, please.
List those resolutions, which really binding, the resolutions under Chapter VII

You know, this is an easy job to do, since Israel has never been subject to a resolution based on Chapter VII

All resolutions have been non-binding recommendations according to Chapter VI.

So... there is no argument for the United Nations to use any force against Israel, no way to argue Israel should be expelled from the United Nations

That is because the Yanks will veto any binding resolutions put forth to the Security Council. It is impossible to criticise and make Israel abide by international law in the UN. Even the non-binding ones must contain some vitreol against the Palestinains, regardless of what it is in there.

Get rid of the veto powers (for everyone) and you would see a very different world.

How quaint, you're towing the Zionist line like a pro Riwka. I know, and you probably know, that Israel has provoked every single War it has been in. If it wasnt sending Israeli secret agents to sabotage Egyptian infrastructure it was starting, and backing, a civil war in Lebanon. Israel is the aggressor plain and simple but creates a maskarovka or a cassus belli for every single action it takes. No one is saying Israel is dumb here, they know how to start a war and make it look like they are being attacked. Its the oldest trick in the book and Israel is a master at it.

I would urge you to read Moshe Sharett's Personal diary if you already havent. It will show you just exactly what the Israeli aim was during all those wars and it comes from an Israeli Prime Ministers own words.

  • You mean like when the UN ordered Israel and Haddad out of Southern Lebanon in 1981? Then the Israeli army, with Haddad's Israeli backed militia, bombarded UN soldiers from UNIFIL, killing 3 Nigeran soldiers? Yeah I can see why you would try and lecture me on the UN charter, Israel follows it to the letter...

    A list of UN Resolutions against "Israel"

    That list is by no means comprehensive and all the resolutions that the World has condemned Israel with. Israel screams bloody murder when the Iranian President utters the phrase "Israel should be wiped off the map" but when the World issues a statement condemning Israel it is shrugged off as simply non-binding words. Oh the hypocrisy!

    Ah yeah, the old Zionist chestnut that Israel has never faced a binding UN resolution therefore it has done nothing wrong. I wonder why that is...

    U.S. Vetoes of UN Resolutions Critical of Israel
    (1972-2004)


    Yeah I can see how you think Israel is free from wrong doing because it has never faced a binding UN resolution critical of it
    . Could it be simply because the United States is being blackmailed by Israel, via their threats of the Samson option, that they never face a critical resolution? Purely because 1 nation veto's them all.

    How about more Security council resolutions critical of Israel that were vetoed?

    Security Council Vetoes/Negative voting 1983-present


    Looking at that track record it is crystal clear to see that Israel has been working outside of accepted international law for decades now. The only thing that has stopped Israel from receiving full blown UN sanctions is the US veto, nothing more. You should be ashamed of supporting a country that has received such widespread condemnation. It is easy to see why Palestinians have no other option but to resort to terrorism against Israel. Their only other option, the UN, has been circumvented by the United States veto.

    You reap what you sow.

    In the future, please let the big ATS-family know, that you are not intersted in serious discussions about Israel, but only want to spread some HATE.

    Still - and for very good reasons - you are unable to prove your assertion , that it would be possible to "wipe Israel off the map" without bloodshed and abiding by the UN charter and International Law.

    YES....Of course, the new born state of Israel provoked Egypt, Syria, Transjordan, Lebanon and Iraq to invade us immediately in the night May 14, 1948 .


    Who knows....Maybe Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League ("This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades." ) has been one of these well known "evil Zionists"?!?


    - And of course, in 1991 poor Saddam army has been provoked by Israel, to fire more than 30 SCUDS which struck Israel.


    Our simple existence is enough to be a provocation.

    Sit down and learn about the facts, subz. Look into each and every single resolution, look at the circumstances, try to find out what happened before and what happened afterwards. It'll be a far better way than copy & paste lists which for good reasons never became resolutions.


    And: Like it or not, the Jewish State of Israel is a well respected member of the United Nations.

    again: please READ the UN charter .



    Just do it - sit down, click on one of the images and start reading the facts.
    It is worth it.


    The United Nations is one of, if not the most corrupt organization in the world. 80% of them are tyrants and dictators posing as statesmen. I just can't see where ANYONE would let people they can't "fire" run their country. I'd advise everyone here to do some research on the UN Agenda 21. Does anyone really think that it would be a good thing to rid the world of 2/3rds of it's population, with the UN dictating where in your own country you can or should live?

    Does anyone agree that the following is a good idea?:
    The Charter for Global Democracy gives the U.N. a standing army with blanket authority to intervene in American affairs "in a crisis." It gives the U.N.’s International Criminal Court the authority to prosecute Americans for violations against U.N. dictates without the protections of the Constitution. And it forces U.S. compliance with radical U.N. environmental treaties that will devastate the U.S. economy and destroy property rights.

    This dangerous Charter creates a global IRS with power to tax and regulate international commerce that affects the U.S.

    Most important, this treaty strips the U.S. of our permanent seat in the U.N. Security Council and abolishes our veto power.

    If the U.N. achieves these dangerous goals our sovereignty will be damaged beyond repair. The U.S. will steadily lose control over its own land and people until it becomes insignificant

    At the June 1998 Rome Summit, the UN openly called for the ability to bring to trial any person in the world before their criminal court.

    In June of 1999 the UN’s Environmental Programme came out with its Human Development Report 1999. It calls for the imposition of several types of world taxation, a world central bank, and a socialist-style redistribution of wealth.

    The September 1999 UN Report of the Group of Governmental Experts on Small Arms calls for global abolition of the right to keep and bear arms.

    From September 1999 through the present, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan has delivered a series of addresses openly calling for an end to national sovereignty, the creation of world law under a global government, and the unrestricted ability of the UN to intervene in the internal affairs of nations.


    These and other recent UN pronouncements have openly advocated the accumulation of all of the powers in the UN that modern governments exercise: Trial and punishment of criminals; raising armies and waging war at will; imposing taxes; redistributing wealth; imposing onerous environmental regulations; and confiscating firearms. Many of those powers are certainly not legitimate functions of government. But legitimate or not, the fact remains that these powers can only be exercised by governments, or the people they supposedly represent.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    I'm so very tired of people here in America calling us a "Democracy", and that includes President Bush when he says it. America is Coinstitutional Republic, with a very few Democratic principles.
    Well, first of all we do not live in a democracy, and what follows is why we should NOT live in a democracy:
    Democracy is indispensable to socialism. V.I. Lenin
    Democracy is the road to socialism. Karl Marx
    The goal of socialism is communism. V.I. Lenin

    After that, here is a small history lesson:

    "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government.
    It can only exist until the voters discover that they can
    vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that
    moment on the majority always votes for the candidates
    promising the most money from the public treasury,
    with the result that a democracy always collapses over
    loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship.

    The average age of the world's great civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence:

    1: from bondage to spiritual faith,
    2: from spiritual faith to great courage,
    3: from courage to liberty,
    4: from liberty to abundance,
    5: from abundance to selfishness,
    6: from selfishness to complacency,
    6: from complacency to apathy,
    7: from apathy to dependency,
    8: from dependency back to bondage."

    Right now, America is about at number 8, because for the past 45 years there have been those, mostly Democrats, who have become the "Progressive" party.... progressive being a catch phrase for Socialists and marxists, and our country has become the worse for it.... Roosevelt started the ball rolling, and Johnson picked it up and ran with it. The UN has failed as did the league of Nations, and the only thing they are good at, at least some of the time, is distributing aid to certain parts of the world. Of course, is those countries had the freedom and liberty America does, they most likely would not be in that position.

    The UN Earth Charter would turn the world into a global democracy, a global Marxist/Socialist state. The charter strips away any idea of religion, except for a global religion where we worship the earth, Water, the Sky, Fire..... Boy.... how's that for a religion!

    Right back at you Arab-hater. Swings both ways Riwka, you cant acuse me of hate from my anti-Zionist views. I have no animosity towards Jews in the slightest. I am not a bigot and would defend any culture, religion or race from any form of abuse. However Zionism is an ideology as insidious as any terrorism and I reject its values and aims.

    Are you dense? I said the UN could vote a resolution calling for the land of Israel to be given back to the Palestinians. If they can give the land to Israel they can take it back. This is a hypothetical purely to prove to you that there is a bloodless method to "wipe Israel off the map" yet you purposely ignore this on the numerous occasions I've mentioned it. The UN charter does not expressly forbid them from revoking previous resolutions in the slightest and thats all the dissolution of Israel would entail - revoking a resolution!

    Maybe if they were consulted before the Zionist land grab of Arab land they might not of felt the need to reclaim Arab land.

    The Mongolian massacres and Crusades are spoken of fondly? I dont read anything in Pasha's quote that shows he is endorsing the extermination in the slightest, in fact he sounds like he is lamenting the coming slaughter as the Crusades and Mongolian massacres are today. Try again Riwka.

    40 years of Israeli aggression and wholesale slaughter coupled with 40 years of Israel ignoring the UN can push people to do heinous things.

    Whats more to learn about them? They are critical of Israel are they not? And every single UNSC resolution critical of Israel is vetoed by 1 solitary vote.

    HA! Surely you jest. I cant think of a single biggest source of violence and instability than the creation of Israel.

    Right - in case the United Nations made a mistake, abiding by the UN charter and International Law, they can recall a resolution.

    Indeed, yesterday has been a historical date on this:

    On November 10, 1975
    - 30 years ago United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379

    DETERMINED that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination

    The UN had learned, although they needed 20 years to adopt Resolution 46/86 on December 16, 1991:

    "THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, DECIDES to revoke the determination contained in its resolution 3379 (XXX) of 10 November 1975".

    But the idea to create two states, one Jewish and one Arab - has been no mistake, so there is no way to recall this abiding by the UN charter and International Law, right?



    Originally posted by subz

    The term "Palestinian" once referred to anyone living in Palestine (like hundreds and hundreds of years my family – JEWS
    - )

    but there has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. ...and there has never been an independent country or state of Palestine....


    You seem even to forget that under International Law, still the land in the West Bank (and also was the Gaza Strip) is "disputed territories" to which both Israelis and Palestinians have claims - and describing the territories as "Palestinian" (= arab) may serve the political agenda of one side in the dispute, but it prejudges the outcome of future territorial negotiations that were envisioned under UN Security Council Resolution 242.

    It also represents a total denial of Israels fundamental rights.

    To me, statements like yours I quoted above, are NO basis for respectful and serious discussions.

    Now please, your proof that I am an Arab-hater - and maybe afterwards it is possible to do research and look into matters a serious way?

    You said I'm spreading hate. So you think I could spread Israeli hatred whilst not hating Israelis? Dont backpeddle Riwka, you think I hate Israelis and you wrote as much. You have no basis for saying that and its not true. Its a tactic that's been used to deflect criticism of Israeli policies since its inception and I reject it.

    So come on, back up your words. Show me proof that I hate Israelis.

    • Please deliver a proof that I am an Arab-hater
    • Please deliver a proof that I wrote you hate Israelis


    (Do you really believe you know me so well that you even claim to know what I THINK ?)

    That was me being facetious, I dont believe you are an Arab-hater. I was simply giving you a taste of your own medicine. Just as I had no evidence or right to call you an "Arab-hater" you had no right to infer that I only want to spread hatred of Israel. Understand?

    What exactly should I be ashamed of? The fact that you think that I "only want to spread some HATE"? What exactly do you think I only want to spread hate of? Taxation? Reality TV? Ashton Kutcher?

    I can only go by what you write, which I have quoted more than once. There is only one way to interpret:

    You shold be ashamed.

    In the future, please let the big ATS-family know, that you are not intersted in serious discussions about Israel, but only want to spread some HATE.
