Again taking Israel's side and defending them even when you just admitted earlier that they have used excessive force, among other things. Don't
think I give a damn about the whole Israel/Palestine thing, other than they both need to chill the hell out. But you have obviously been brainwashed
into supporting Israel in particular; ie you are biased in favor of Israel. You know their politicians even say they have Americans wrapped around
their little finger?
A few questions for your brainwashed mind sir,
Who brainwashed me? The internet? The mountains? Because I don't follow along with all the attempting-to-justify-brutality talking points like
brainwashed Israeli supporters do.
1)Is it bad to be pro-israel?
Is it bad to be pro-Nazi? To be pro- the killing and mistreating of many people without any justification, which just further pisses them off?
However you would answer that, my friend, there is your answer.
What exactly is pro-israel anyway?
Being pro-Israel is posting a bunch of nonsense reasons why Israel is justified in using "disproportionate" force as the one poster here put it,
especially when you don't even freaking live there. It's one thing to be patriotic for your own country, but if you don't even live there and you
can't approach the issue fairly, but have to automatically favor Israel, then you are obviously the one that has been brainwashed.
If someone tries to be objective when discussing this complicated issue are they automatically pro-israel?
There is nothing too complicated about mistreating people. What is "complicated" is trying to justify it with a bunch of irrelevant nonsense that
would never be any excuse for a crime in a court of law.
Does one have kiss palestinian arse to remain unbiased?
No, but I wouldn't expect you to be able to tell the difference between impartiality and favoring Palestine, since you are obviously biased in favor
of letting Israel do whatever they want. Are you racist, or just brainwashed? Actually, what's the difference, right?
2)Do you not realise that mainstream media has intentionally made a big deal out of the israeli-palestinian conflict;i.e blowing it wayyy
outttt offff proportion while almost totally ignoring other conflicts! Why do you think this is happening? Do you care?
It's happening because the US has traditionally supported Israel like no other country on Earth, and they (Israel) feel they need our continued
support to continue their atrocities unchecked in the world. The reason so much attention is given Israel in the media is because they WANT you to
sympathize with them, to excuse their actions, to let them treat people however they feel is appropriate, and that takes a lot of double-talk,
propaganda, all the usual politics. If what they did over there only made a passing story or two, given what kinds of stories they would be, a lot
less people would be as brainwashed as yourself into supporting so zealously a foreign country on the other side of the world and would see Israel for
what they are doing.
Face it, you would not give a damn about that spec of dirt if it weren't plastered all over the news all the time. Just like South Africa or Mexico
or any other country in turmoil that is hardly worth wasting time arguing politics over. Israel just needs you to argue for them so the US can
continue to lobby the UN not to step in. That takes more than not giving a damn. It takes real double-talk to make people support a bunch of
