according to your theory of justice.
It would make much more sense to pursue justice for them, then the "Palestinians"....

If you actually watch the video, you will see where they point the gun at him.
And if you don't see it, then try opening your eyes while watching.

I do not read stories of any uprising by the Palestinians, against their Arab brother occupiers now occupying their lands in Jordan or Syria, et al,
Because Jordan amd Syria are not currently occupying land set out for a Palestinian state according to international law.
Perhaps I have forgotten the many UN Resolutions citing Jordan, Lebanon, et al for not ceding land for a Palestine State.
Site those resoulutions, but when you do make sure they apply to here and now and not 1949 to 1967.
I must have been a daydream I remember when I think that once upon a time Israel did offer the “Palestinians” their own state and it was rejected by the evil king Yasser.
No such thing ever happened, they were promised somthing less then a state, where they would have full control of Tulkarm, Jenin, Jericho, Nablus, Ramallah, Hebron, Bethlehem and Qalqilja which is only 4% of the West Bank with another 25% under Palestinian Civil control and control over Gaza excluding Israeli settlements. Not to mention Israeli settlements remained in West Bank, with most of the West Bank under complete Israeli control. That is not a state sir. Only 4% under Palestinian control with another 25% under Palestinian civil control(health, schools ect). The Israeli never promised a state ever. They suggested the previous, with a transitional period of 5 years, but never committed to final status talks.
I must be researching biased history books when my studies show that since its creation Israel has only started one war with its Arab neighbors, and that one was only because they struck a few days before an entire Arab army descended on them.
Good work painting a propagandised image and avoiding highlighting the complexities of the situation. Lets discuss every Arab-Israeli war and you will see, it is not just crazy Arabs attack Israel, Israel defends.
As for this quote, to state that helping a race rather than another race because one has had it "tougher" is just wrong, they both deserve the same amount of justice for the situation they have been put through, no more or no less. I cant believe you would state something like that,like really? Jeez.

And the person who thinks magnitude makes no difference shares a similar morality with Joseph Stalin, who once said "The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions is a statistic"....Meaning, one death is a personal thing. The deaths of millions transcends all personal bounds. It is too enormous to be taken in, and felt. One is 'shocked', by the gravity of the situation. It becomes only something known, intellectually, and not felt.....
I think it is disgusting to put all things on an equal footing, as if there were no difference in gravity, and injustice between the plight of the native americans...or if you want a more recent and salient example, the kurds of northern iraq, western iran, northeatern syria and southeastern Iran, who have been robbed of a state, massacred by Arab governments like Sadaam Husseins.....
Gravity makes a difference. According to logic, and true ideas of justice, the most pressing injustice comes first. You do not address the person with a broken foot before someone bleeding to death.edit on 30-6-2011 by dontreally because: (no reason given)
If we are to take that path, then it would also seem that Israel by definition would not currently be occupying land set out for a Palestinian state according to international law.
Where are the uprisings by the Palestinians, against their Arab brothers now occupying their lands?
Yom Kippur War – surprise attack on Israel by a “Coalition” of Arab States led by Egypt and Syria
Six-Day War (as noted above the only one where Israel launched a first strike upon Forces being massed at its borders by let’s count them not 1 not 2 but 3Arab nations.
1982 Lebanon War- response to the assassination attempt against Israel's ambassador to the UK, rocket attacks, terrorist activity
any injustice is too much injustice
And a theft is the same as murder
If you dont get why im mocking you
This is how your theory of law works
prove that moses even did that
there were people there before the israelites showed up

compared to the amount of palistinians killed there is no comparison and where does it show bombs strapped to children?
prove that they strap bombs to children
At least 6,430 Palestinians and 1,084 Israelis
have been killed since September 29, 2000.
American news reports repeatedly describe Israeli military attacks against the Palestinian population as “retaliation.” However, when one looks into the chronology of death in this conflict, the reality turns out to be quite different.
Children being hunted by Israeli snipers in Rafah
Palestinian doctors despair at rising toll of children shot dead by army snipers
there israeli snipers hunt children where are the baby bombs of which you speak

what did the jews do to deserve all this violence?
You are in darkness. And until you have the light of Jesus you will remain in utter darkness.
Ah.... another sickening reminder that the world allows Israel to go about as it pleases... because it would be anti-semitic to criticize Israel. I get sick when I see pro-israeli people defend Israels actions by stating that "the palestinians are always trying to kill the poor israelis" Not only is that propaganda, its a pathetic excuse to justify behaviour that would be condemned if anybody else did it. Im sure the Germans also had a problem with the jews back then... that led to jews being treated the way they were in WW2.
What did the palestinians do to deserve having their land taken over by foriegners
