Re: Exercising 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights

1. he was wielding a weapon in a private area, you have no second amendment right to do so

2. yeah you can scream anti trump stuff all you want, but from what I hear, this guy was pretty far right, and just got disillusioned by trump not being right enough

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

Thank you telamor for being the voice of rationality and empathy. It truly speaks to the privilege and ignorance of Western citizens when they see the Palestinian protests and deaths and blame the victims for it. People like yanik have never and probably will never live in a world even remotely hel...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

I had another post but when I submitted it, the wifi decided to buffer it, and I had to reload the page. oh well. @Telamor I'd also like to point out my point for making this thread was for this one conflict at the fence north of Gaza. 1. the massive Israel-bashing on twitter, with people pretending...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

I lived in Jerusalem for a time. People love sticking the word Hamas on Palestinian protests to delegitimise them and that's complete bs. The Palestinian people have no methods of self-assertion that aren't directed against Israel. All Palestinian borders are controlled by Israel. Israel dictates w...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

By the way, this is the history of Israel as I've come to know it. if I'm getting facts wrong, please let me know. - most of the land in Palestinian Mandate the Zionists got, was legally bought by what we would call landlords, it was the farmers on the land (who never actually owned the land) who go...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

I get it Yanik, you support genocide of brown people. *yawn* the whole fascist pearl clutching over burning tires is getting quite old. also, since I can't be bothered to read your incoherent ramblings, I'm going to respond to a key point, which is you claiming that Israel has only had distant supp...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

Amazing story Tom!!! I didn't know that your friend burned a couch while a part of a mob of 40,000 trying to invade a foreign nation with many of the people around him throwing grenades and Molotov cocktails at soldiers along with now reports of gunfire! oh... wait you mean your friend JUST burned a...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

It seems clear to me that Israel is not making the lives of the Palestinians a priority. I have no doubt whatsoever that they could have defended their borders with far fewer casualties if the will had been there. Equally, it is clear that this is not a peaceful protest, and was never designed to b...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

recapping for this entire damn thread Hamas has a history of using children in schools and hospitals as cover for their rockets, hoping Israel kills their kids so they can get support. This protest is called the #GreatReturnMarch because they want the land Israel, according to even the UN, rightfull...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

The point of oversimplification isn't to make me feel better, it's to trigger some goddamn empathy on your part. It's to help you contextualize exactly why the Gazans are pissed off. Why they are wiling to throw rocks at tanks. Why they keep electing terrorist factions. I wonder why you think it's ...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

Alternatively, you could answer mine. Because historical complexity doesn't mean shit to someone whose grandparents were kicked off the family patrimony and whose family has spent the next couple of generations trapped in a ghetto. You know who else supported the Nazis, and with much more ubiquity ...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

How many generations of Chinese occupation of Oklahoma would it take before you gave up on it? Also, if you actually read what I've posted, I already said Israel should turn over the West Bank to Palestine, pull out of all settlements, allow more Gaza independence, and let Palestine work itself out...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

How many generations of Chinese occupation of Oklahoma would it take before you gave up on it? If Oklahomans started fully supporting Naziism along with the rest of the USA, and in WWIII the Chinese were good guys and invaded the USA, then China decided that Oklahoma would be a refuge for Jews from...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

@Octavious I agree with everything you said, but on one point: 40,000 people trying to cross the Israeli border, with extremely belligerent forces, and the guard has a choice to make. stick with tear gas and hope that intimidation works, or use deadly force. Israel would have a much simpler time if ...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

This is a tasteless response to a tragedy. Do you know what I find tasteless? The parents who bring their kids to these border rushes, knowing full well that their children could be killed, I find tasteless The swastikas that lay in the sky alongside Palestinian flags at these protests, I find tast...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

JamesYanik, There is a wall all around Gaza with trenches and watchtowers. And there is also a security zone (several hundreds meters wide) that is forbidden to Palestinians. They were shot because they entered Inside. This wall is not hold by the border's police. It is hold by Givati brigade. They...

Re: 52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

I'm going to make 4 points to try to streamline this better: #GreatReturnMarch is a hashtag that should not exist in relation to Gaza, if anything it should be #IsraelLeaveUsAlone but it's not, and that's because their motives are clear If protestors violently attack a border, less than a mile from ...

52 Dead in Israel/Palestine Clashes

So there are protests in Israel, several thousand Palestinians injured, 52 confirmed dead. Everyone is blaming Israel, and they do have a history of using excessive force... but then it’s like we’re missing the fact that the massive black plumes of smoke are from protestors lighting tires and incend...
