I'm less anti-Israel then anti-Hamas .. so I'll tell ya' what I think.
I think that perhaps I'll go looking for Israeli goods to buy so as to
show my support for the defensive measures that they have had to
take against the continual agression that Hamas has put them through.



What you, and every other pro-Israel poster here fails completely to fathom, is that the hundreds of CHILDREN being murdered by Israel ARE NOT HAMAS!

What part of this are you all not *snip* getting?

Again, if you support Israel, you are directly supporting the murder of children. How on Earth can any of you justify that?

I'm really trying to keep my cool on this one.

I honestly didn't think there were people so hateful on the ATS forum. I honestly didn't think such nasty attitudes existed here of all places. Or such stupidity in such droves.

I think I give up trying to convince you that slaughtering kids and women is not right, it seems a lot of you are too happy to see it.

As long as you can ignore the atrocities you don't like to look at, cast doubt on the reports by international and impartial observers, and ignore when blatant evidence of such gross treatment is given to you, you'll continue to support the murderous Israel and no common sense will tell you brainwashed idiots otherwise.

I'm ashamed to call you fellow Humans. Just as I am ashamed to have to say that Israel is painting such a horrific picture of the "gentle" Jewish people.

Israel deserves every word of international condemnation it gets, and a thousand times worse.

I posted Klein's article in this thread the other day:

It's absurd that it should be illegal to boycott Israel or any other country. But it is Israel that is specifically addressed in the regs. Why?

Israel has a right to defend itself.
Hamas uses civlians as human shields.
It is the fault of HAMAS that those people are dead.

As to the rest of your rant ... whatever.

By killing 2 year old children.



Hamas uses civlians as human shields.

How do you know that?
Are you there now?

Yes hamas flys the jets and droop bombs, I think they got some kind of mind control over jews and are making them drop bombs on little kids.

By your logic, Israel is just a white poney


Right the white horsey....and insert more money in it, so It can drop more bombs.

By your illogic ... Are you there and did you see Israel kill the 2 year old?

Hamas is to blame. They caused this.
To boycott Israel because they are defending themselves is ignorant.
But do what you want. I'm sure Israel can handle it.

if you want to boycott israel, why not refuse to pay taxes (if you're in the US) or maybe boycott israeli lobby groups from giving favors and money in exchange for support in washington

Something occurred to me watching the celebrations of 911. Why is it DAY time in Palestine at the same time the news is reporting this on Sept 11? Something stinks there and it isn't the goat cheese.

Of course the same people who want a boycott of Israel also want a boycott of China for their occupation and killings in Tibet don't you.

Let's boycott China.

Then we'll get to the Sudan and the half million people being sytematically murdered there.

Then the Congo, then ...

ATS members are willing to for freedom anywhere.

We see it from their postings on outrages everywhere.

FF.

In any armed conflict, there is a cause and effect, but in a declaration of war, there are limits. You cannot justify this type of indiscriminate killing because 8 people have died due to rockets attacks the year prior. Seen in the video above, you have IDF soldiers deliberately firing on Medical personnel. Which is not only disgusting to me personally as a certified EMT, but it is also a war crime. IDF has claimed 20 lives of medical personnel thus far. Despicable.

8 deaths to indiscrimnate firing from Hamas is 8 too many. Regardless. That does not allow Israel to kill 1,000 Palestinians with the same style of haphazard and even in some cases, on purpose. I believe one of the most highly applicable quotes is,

"He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." - Friedrich Nietzche

People are dead, dying, and Israel once again stuped to a new low. After the Holocaust, measures were taken so this wouldn't happen not just to the Jewish people, but to ANYBODY.

And I'm also disgusted with Israel taking the 8 dead from rocket attacks and using them as leverage for political/geopolitical gains. The closest relation is Guilliani and 9/11. Tragedy for sale.

The terrible things men do... Even worse, get away with.

Peace be with innocence.

No they don't.

Have you seen the Israeli SANCTIONED size of Gaza?

Its not like they can put those "human shields" someplace else.

Maybe it's a little naive to think that this would ever happen to be a satisfying solution, but what IF someone like the u.n. or a higher authority would decide isreal has to leave the area and move to a western country due to their lastest warcrimes? I mean, they wouldn't lose their face for accommodating to terrorist because it would be more like a punishment, and it would lead to a better life for everybody. There's plenty of space where they could life and create a new state of israel.

This might sound a little simplistic, and would definatly take further planing, but that's the only good way i can see beside the idea that everybody has to leave the area.

Human life should have more value than any piece of dusty land or false pride.

'm afraid that any boycott of Israeli exports would have little effect on their economy. Much of their income comes from the services sector, financial, Information Technology and security.
How many people know the following services contract that Israel has:

US Nuclear Weapons Being 'Guarded' By Israel By Michael Collins Piper First published 9-26-7 8-30-8 American supporters of Israel were delighted to learn that an Israeli company, Magal Security Systems-owned in part by the government of Israel-is in charge of security for the most sensitive nuclear power and weapons storage facilities in the United States. The largest perimeter security company in the world, Magal started out as a division of Israeli Aircraft Industries (IAI)-which was owned in part by the government of Israel. In recent years, however, Magal evolved into a publicly-traded company, although IAI (and thus the government of Israel) still holds a substantial share in the highly successful firm. What all of this means is that the government of Israel will actually have control over the security of America's nuclear weapons.

I'm not pro Isreali, but Hammas is manipulating you guys like puppets.

Since 2005 there have been daily firings of rockets from Gaza into Isreal and not one of you protested about the conduct of Hammas.

I am yet aligned with any major religion. I don't know what the ultimate truth is. Probably none of us are hard-wired to understand the ultimate truth. Like a dog is not hard-wired to understand basic algebra. What I do know is that the jewish people are intelligent, creative, peace-loving people. They are surrounded by a fanatical hateful people who teach their children to hate from birth. Non-muslims must submit or die. Israel is fighting for it's survival. And the muslims would gladly sacrifice all the people they profess to support (palestians) if israel would cease to exist.
Put your irrational thoughts aside and think about who you would rather co-exist with.

How do you know what everyone has or has not protested since 2005? That is a rather bold statement. Are you omniscient?
First of all, I doubt that many members approve of Hamas and their tactics. There is a great difference between Hamas and the unfortunate innocent civilians caught in the battle between Israel and Hamas.
What I believe, and I can only speak for myself, is that Israel has taken military actions without sufficient regard to the casualties of civilians in Gaza. I also believe that the incident of the 110 civilians in the building IS an act that qualifies as a legitimate war crime, should it be proven to be factual.
To take "sides" in this conflict is rather useless, since both "sides" have been fighting over the same land for over 3,500 years. I doubt that this current activity will change anything.
To sit still, and NOT condemn the innocent civilians on both sides that have been killed would be criminal.
