Get this through you head, for future notice. I could care less what you think of me. So leave the personal "good post" when i talk about history and
religion, and than bad post when i apply that understanding into a political sphere, which is "zionist". Im not sure if youre trying to, but you will
have no power in changing my position by this weak sort of social persuasion..
My opinion is entirely justified, both historically and politically.
And as for my mentioning his buddhism. Im just pointing out that the vast majority of buddhists i encounter on this website are Israel bashers. Its
as if their own Buddhism enables (through its moral relativism) them to play around with objective facts. To a buddhist, particularly an educated one,
the only important truth is that Israel, and particularly Judaism, cannot succeed in its world historical program.
I explained in my previous post why Israel and Judaism poses such a threat to the social structure of society. Judaism offers a more humane
alternative to the idols that the pagan overlords of the present and past erect between G-d and man. This is because Judaism acknowledges a UNIVERSAL
moral truth. This establishes a REAL relationship between G-d and man, and thus insures that society as a whole is based on the premise of "fearing
G-d" by honoring moral limitations. Read Machiavelli, or Hobbes, to get an idea of what pagan social policy is. "Appearing" just is all that matters.
Appearances then become more important than objective facts. Appearances, and aesthetics is the hallmark of hellenism. It is the idol that many in the
world today bow to.
I have studied a bit buddhism myself and i can definitely say there are many things about it that are unsettling. So its not coincidence that i
encounter this anti-zionism most strongly, and most audaciously (in ignoring the facts) from the buddhist crowd. They are an arrogant bunch.
But anywho. 75% of the towns in "Palestine" have Hebrew names. Even the arabi named towns, are transliteration of BIBLICAL Hebrew names. Isnt that
funny? Is that not testament to Judaisms rightful claim to this land? Even though the Cohanim and Levites of the Jewish world are actually descended
from the biblical Cohanim and Leviyim, it doesnt matter whether todays Jews are infact descendants of the biblical Jews (even though a vast majority
are). Judaism is a RELIGION. Its precepts unlike other religions are most expressed and relevant only when performed in the biblical land of Israel.
Judaism therefore is a land-centered religion (Unlike Christianity, or Islam).
Judaism does not believe the rest of the world should become Jewish, again unlike Christianity and Islam. Judaism, is for Jews (which any gentile can
willingly accept. But proseltyization is strictly forbidden) while Mankind is accountable to G-d by performing whats called the 7 laws of Noach. This
basically means mankind has an obligation to serve G-d in a completely reasonable, and logical manner. While Judaism demands a much more rigorous
lifestyle, some practices of which cant be rationally justified.
And as for the history of the region. It is a FACT - that the land east of the Jordan (later called transjordan) was meant to serve as the home for
the displaced Arabs living in Palestine.
And heres a fun fact.
I typed in Palestine in google news, and 265 News articles came up. Beneath that there were another 160 news articles.
Than i typed in Sudan, a MUCH MORE SERIOUS (thats if you take your morality seriously) humanitarian situation.
Just 48 News articles.
does this not prove my thesis? Do the math. People cant even figure out what the "death tolls" are in the palestinian territories because frankly,
many live fairly comfortably. They have beach to go to, they have convenience stores, and shopping malls, and grocery stores. How can someone living
in this environment be seriously regarded as living in a refugee camp? Compared to REAL refugee camps, this deal looks like a 5 star hotel in
Anyways. The Math is convincing. Palestine recieves 5 times the attention that Sudan gets. 5 TIMES!!.
SLAVERY STILL EXISTS IN SUDAN. The Northern Muslim Arabs enslave the southern blacks and animists (those who hold to ancestoral beliefs). Do we hear
about this? Other than a token mention to satisfy the real human rights activists..
In Darfur, 350,000 Human Beings have been killed in just 6 years. 2.5 million have been displaced. Their homes taken from them, and sold into slavery.
ANY HUMAN BEING who looks at the basic facts and still finds reason to justify the Palestine crisis while ignoring the much more serious one in Sudan
is a Liar, and contributing to the genocide of the Sudanese.
