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...

Re: UK defence minister

Perhaps I can help here with clarifying the issue? Here is what you said first: Also worth pointing out that nowhere in the civilised world does anyone prosecute people who are guilty. People prosecute those suspected of a crime, and then guilt or lack of guilt is determined. This is wonderful. It i...

Re: A Better Democracy

I think we should simplify it even further and just let me choose all government officials.

As everyone knows, my judgement is impeccable.

Just read the setup...and was thinking Tyranthraxus sounded familiar.

I played this game!
