Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

But tax payers seeing their money being taken and used to give weapons (for free) to Israel, which uses them to murder civilians on a wholesale basis , should annoy anyone who isn't a Zionist. I amended it slightly, but you are right. I think you and I both know that they simply don't care. Unless ...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

I think I explained above. The propaganda war is the one they need to concentrate on.

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

It is frustrating that the Palestinians can't realize what an incredibly poor negotiating position they are really in. What makes you think most Palestinians don't realise this? Because many still are asking for things that have no chance of happening? Israel isn't going away, "right of return" ain...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

The only practicable solution I can see is compensated resettlement. <snip> Nah. There's nothing in it for the military industrial complex, unless they're building the condos... Not a bad idea though. I think this should be discussed...if only to make clear that this is what will effectively happen...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

Not even talking about arms sales. The US gifts Billions of dollars worth of weapons to Israel every year, described as "military aid". Ie the US tax payer gifts money to Israel on condition that they buy US weapons which supports profits (and arguably jobs) in a wide variety of US states. You seri...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

And we aren't even mentioning how easy it is for Palestinians to lose residency rights to East Jerusalem. The goal being of course to gradually remove them from the area.

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

Seriously? Do Palestinian's have the same rights to lost homes from 70 years ago? Well if you say Palestinian squatters given homes by Jordanian conquerors from their Jewish owners is legal. Then Israel which conquered East Jerusalem in 1967 and annexed it would have the same legal rights to return...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

To put it another way, Flash, the rockets from Gaza are a desperate response from a people who have been kicked and beaten and abused and starved and murdered and imprisoned by a force of zealous settler colonists over the last several decades. Gaza is a prison camp and the Israelis have been carry...

I thought the images spoke for themselves.
Put the shoe on the other foot for a second, what SHOULD the Israeli government have done in response to the rockets?

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

Missing the point by a long shot. Also, isn't the Taiwanese position that Taiwan is China? They even held the UN security council permanent seat for, eh.. Until 1971... That was the Guomingdang (Kuomingtang) position. I believe Taiwan is moving away from that...China is more concerned that Taiwan w...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

It is to Netanyahu's benefit that Hamas stays in Gaza. If the Palestinian's are divided there is no risk of a peace process:

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

There is a well known Western bias for reporting stories of white people and countries. An earthquake in California gets more coverage and help than the same in Nepal, for example. Israel and whiteness / Western-Ness as it applies to Jewish communities is a bit odd. I have one neighbour who is of J...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

Are you? I'm glad you made that clear as it had passed me by completely. People tend to criticise Israel in particular largely because it happens to be in the media a lot and we're more familiar with it. I dare say there's an antisemitic element to it from a fair few people, but I've no reason to a...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

A common argument that the Israeli PR uses to shield themselves from criticism is "whataboutism". e.g. Why are you criticizing Israel...when you haven't criticized $RANDOM other country to the same degree which supposedly is even worse? Through the way I phrase my response I am explaining why it is ...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

'free press' and 'western democracy', makes me think you should read 'manufacturing consent' - just an aside on how Chomsky explains that the 'free' press produces the same kind of uncritical press that the Soviet Unions official state propoganda machinery. I am not sure exactly what point you are ...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

I may be an old fuddy duddy here...but I would argue that countries that think of themselves as Western democracies probably shouldn't be targeting the free press with air strikes. That the media outlets may not have been been obsequious enough in following the "official" narrative does not make the...
