I think there should be an ATS 101 for new members. Cuz I am thinking you meant to post that in another thread, and in BTS?

Actually I wasn't sure what you meant. But I understand now
And yes it's ridiculous discussion, especially when it's ultimately one-sided.

Still, I am glad we are brining to light the different angles of racism and prejudices. It's education. And I get to learn which members I am not on the same 'plane' with lol.

**Edited to add: Yes I agree they need to curb the blatant racism and genocide hate talk. I also think it's against the ToC

The problem I have are humans. I see it in here and this is just my opinion: Some do not care about animals being driven to extinction.

Do not tell me about whaling or hunters and the like.


Just seems silly to me that you feel killing endangered animals is wrong, but you casually brush off the slaughtering of millions upon millions of animals as 'no biggie'. That's imo.


In this case, it was not needed and a shame it was killed.


That's in direct contrast to what many members have said. What about the idea that they were desperate to eat? Can you elaborate on that? You state it so matter-o-fact. Do you live near there?

I think in your heart you mean to do good, unfortunately your brain has confused your soul as to what that means.

Already elaborated on how I feel about people on why they think it's nothing about killing off endangered animals.

Now, prove to me they were, indeed, desperate.

From what I could tell, those people looked well nourished. Especially the man in the white shirt holding the knife

Exactly. By looking at the facts the situation becomes very clear. If I was starving, I wouldn't really care what was on the endangered list either. I'm suprised the Israeli troops allowed them to go fishing in the first place.

If you believe the Palestinians are not desperate people, you must not do much research. They are arguably the most oppressed people in the world. Food is nothing but a luxury to them, if the Israelis let them have any at all.

This again proves the absolute "appolgist" position of so many for the poor "palestinians".........hog wash..............its shows the authors hate for Israel.....nothing more.

Facts.


Fearful of a looming humanitarian disaster, Israel will allow food and other basic supplies into the Gaza Strip following Hamas' takeover of the coastal area, Public Security Minister Avi Dichter said Saturday.

I am not going to get dragged into that argument.

When I see that video, those particular people did not look desperate. If they were, they should have thought about the kids first and foremost.

The description I read was that the fishermen ate it. They even spoke about aphrodisiacs.

My interpretation, forced on no one, is that these people more than likely saw the turtle as one huge floating viagra pill.

Palestinians slaughter rare species in Gaza


www.reuters.com

Apr. 4 - Palestinian fishermen catch and kill a giant sea turtle, thought to be a Leatherback, an endangered species.

The rare giant sea turtle caught on a beach near Gaza City was slaughtered and eaten by Palestinian fishermen who said its blood was an aphrodisiac, among other therapeutic qualities. A Reuters cameraman said the fishermen collected the giant turtle's blood and gave it to children suffering from trauma and adults with back problems
(visit the link for the full news article)



What gets me is the entire comical lack of perspective. Palestinians are killing Israelis and Christian Arabs (Bethlehem is soon going to be ethnically cleansed of Christians despite Jesus having been born there), Israelis are killing Palestinians, and --- OMG, somebody killed a Leatherback Turtle.

South Park, your next episode's already been written for you.

There are Palestinians, who murder humans. Don't be surprised when they don't seem to appreciate animals.

I barely know what a leatherback is let alone whether they're edible or not, and i'm a westerner...the use of the word 'slaughter' along with most people's views on this so called story are just racist...perhaps they were retarded, we have those in the west you know, but of course the article wouldn't include that detail...get a grip people you're wasting energy

It's very sad to see any innocent creature abused or killed. There are people over the world, who enjoy violence though. We must protect our loved-ones.

Some humans murder other humans. Some humans do not always appreciate animals...especially when some of those humans are hungry.

Wait a cotton picking minute. Are you saying they are uneducated because they are fishermen or because of the misfortune of being under an Israeli collective punishment regime via the blockade imposed on them.

I have read that during the Warsaw Ghetto blockade people ate anything including rats and human corpses. If I was in this kind of predicament, I would say, "Gimme a side of leatherback turtle with all the trimmings...easy on the mayo."

More seriously dude, please get off your high horse.

Has anyone mentioned the fish al gore had served at his daughters wedding?

budski...

If this is true then I have no respect for Al Gore or his daughter.

Wealthy people have no business depleting the seas of endangered species just so they amass prestige with their over the top weddings in the social coulmns.

There is a difference with this and killing to eat because you are genuinely hungry and can not provide you own food due to being 'corralled' in a ghetto with no farm space.

thanks for sharing that.


take care

Agreed. If people are put into the same situation as the Palestinians they would do anything to feed their hungry children. It's easy for westerners to point the fingers because they have a market on every other block. You are mentioning one endangered turtle, yet what about the hunting seasons in America? How much animals die for sport and not to mention not everyone gets a quick death.
