I think the thread has gotten lots of attention based on the number of flags.
I disagree. The thread is only 1 page. That will surely change once someone comes in to tell us we're all antisemites for reading this. flags are
meaningless to me, and I think to plenty of others as well. The thread title and topic, however, I find interesting.
I don't believe for a second this was an unbiased survey, at all. In fact, I'd go as far as to say they probably surveyed settlers out of
proportion to the rest of Israeli society.
But, regardless, there is it. At least some chunk of the Israeli population would be ok with Israel starting it's own pogroms against the arabs,
racial discrimination at the government level, a second class status for those of the "wrong" race.
Yup, turning towards a dangerous path. This isn't to say the government will do it. That's not the point. the propaganda is apparently working,
as Israeli citizens, some of them at least, are already ok with the fact that arabs are sub human, and are ok with the government going all in and
That said.... Let me be the one to ask.....
If this survey was done, say, in the occupied territories, or maybe some of the neighboring countries, would we see a similar reaction directed at
i'm not naive enough to say know, we already know the response that survey would get. So before you try to skewer this into us hating jews because
they are jews, keep in mind, we didn't write the survey.
And it would be hard to cast Israel in a bad light if they stopped doing and supporting bad things. It really is that simple. No other
country/government is immune to criticism, Israel shouldn't be exempt either.
While I choke back bile thinking of those who would support these types of laws, I also understand that plenty of Israelis wouldn't support it, and I
do NOT judge them based on the actions of their government or the fringe elements within their society.
For a great example of this, go watch "Where in the world is Osama Bin Laden" specifically the scenes where Morgan is in Israel. Just watchinig
that you'd think, wow, those Israeli's are a bunch of dicks. But again, these are the settlers and the ultra-orthodox jews, they are a minority,
just a very violent and vocal one.
Those people and those who support the crimes they perpetrate will spell the end of Israel as it is now.
