The largest bloc of Jews living in the Middle East outside of Israel live in Iran, and they seem to love living there.

And of course that means Iran are like the Nazis??? Do the pro-Israel people have any arguments that don't involve the holocaust???
If the shoe fits, wear it. Ofcourse that fits all people who choose to commit genocide instead of coexisting. We're all humans here and no one is innocent. Something has to change or humanity will drive itself to extinction.
You bore me with your hateful rhetoric. You are just like the people you denounce in the video.
The only difference is this: They have the courage to state how they feel openly. You, poorly I might add, use subterfuge, appeals to one-sided morality, appeals to emotion, and banal calls for civil rights to spout your beliefs. I am not fooled.
About halfway down the first page on this thread an example was posted of a Rabbi calling for the complete destruction of Iran. Apparently, the side you root for is just as "hateful" as the side you deplore.
In regards to your comments about Hamas: The way in which they do battle with their enemies is called Asymmetric War. They fight the way they do because they have to.
You seem to be far more concerned with how they fight their war instead of being concerned with why they fight their war.
Where is my outrage regarding the lack of civil rights in the Middle East? I am not outraged. What outrages me is how you would like to force the people of that region to live by your standards. Forcing people to conform to what you want is called terrorism. See how easy it is to throw that label around?
I’m very disappointed in many members here who can’t get past their own contrived hatred for Israeli and American actions. Why can’t the people who see the misdeeds of Israel and America acknowledge the misdeeds of groups like Hamas?
People need to see Hamas for what it is….a terrorist organization that kills innocent women and children indiscriminately in the name of peace.
The Qassam rocket (Arabic: صاروخ القسام Ṣārūkh al-Qassām; also Kassam) is a simple steel artillery rocket developed and deployed by the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military arm of Hamas. Three models have been produced and used between 2001 and 2011.
More generally, all types of Palestinian rockets fired into southern Israel, for example the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Al Quds rockets, are called Qassams by the Israeli media, and often by foreign media.
The Qassam gained notoriety as the best-known type of rocket deployed by Palestinian militants mainly against Israeli civilians, but also some military targets during the Second Intifada of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. Since 2000, Palestinian rockets, which include the Qassam, alongside others such as the Grad rocket, have claimed the lives of 22 Israelis and one Thai national.
The introduction of the Qassam rocket took Israeli politicians and military experts by surprise, and reactions have been mixed. In 2006, the Israeli Ministry of Defense viewed the Qassams as "more a psychological than physical threat." A 2008 study found that over half of Sderot's residents have been hurt, either physically or psychologically by Qassams. The Israel Defence Force has reacted to the deployment of the Qassam rockets by deploying the Red Color early warning system in Sderot, Ashkelon and other at-risk targets. The system consists of an advanced radar that detects rockets as they are being launched, and loudspeakers warn civilians to take cover between 15 and 45 seconds before impact in an attempt to minimize the threat posed by the rockets. A system called Iron Dome, designed to intercept the rockets before they can hit their targets, is in use since March 2011.
Wow , your a real piece of work. It seems nothing would make you happier, than these 23000 Iranian Jews, be killed, just so you can say...

Tell me the flaw in my logic!
edit on 26-8-2012 by seabag because: (no reason given)
Do you honestly believe we only see the misdeeds of only the US/Israel but not of the terrorists? Seriously, you believe this? Like we all have blinders on and can't see what Al Qaeda or any other terrorist has done and continues to do? Seriously?! With all the propaganda supporting Israel & her allies thank god someone is pointing out their atrocities because life in this world sure aint black and white.
What else do you know about Hamas? There's more to them then just being terrorists. You have time and time again brought up women and children but fail to acknowledge atrocities done to women and children by Israel. I posted an RT article about the terrorist acts the IDF committed and probably still committs today but you brushed it off assuming these children are terrorists. Funny thing is, in a earlier post you posted a picture of Arab children marching in uniform while armed and that was so disgusting to you but when I post a new article about IDF literally terrorizing Arab children you defended the IDF calling the children terrorists. Brave Seabag, and btw check out this Newest Flags/Replies thread on ATS, Israel Uses a 13 Year Old Boy as a Human Shield
Probably another terrorist, right? I assume you believe throwing stones = terrorism?
But let's about about that other thread of yours discussing Iran for a second. So you believe the Iranian Gov't is advocating the killing of all Jews, right? And by all Jews we're talking world wide, right? So I should be afraid that Iran is gonna come to the USofA and kill me solely because I'm considered by them a Jew? Or they at least want me dead, right?
Ok back to Hamas, what else there to know about them? Why not make a thread completely educating people about this terrorist group so everyone can see who they are and what they are capable of? We got a little bit into some of their history but there's more to them being just a terrorist group blowing people up, or at least trying too.
Peoples hatred is not "Contrived", It is a genuine and heartfelt emotion, it is very hard to pretend to hate something.
People have the right to feel anyway they like about anything that crosses their intellectual radar. The flaw is your Misunderstanding that people don't pretend to hate the acts of aggression these countries have been inflicting on others, there are many many many poeple who are genuinely heartfelt in their disgust at the actions of these co-opted governments.
Definition of CONTRIVED
: having an unnatural or false appearance or quality : artificial, labored
Iran has not attacked anyone in the last 400 years, they won't be aggressive if left alone, North Korea has exploded atomic bombs and threatens their use against south korea on a weekly basis.
But, south korea is not israel is it. Irans rhetoric is just that, until another false flag embroils them into a situation not of their making.
