Meanwhile back on the ground, Israel has blocked access to Gaza, including for humanitarian aid workers, and is preventing supplies of fuel. Power lines have been destroyed and water and waste pipes have been smashed. Sewage is pouring into the streets and hundreds of thousands of people are without proper supplies of drinking water.

Israel is murdering these people. This is an act of calculated genocide.

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:

Probably not the best counter-example to bring up considering that my wife is Burmese and the last few months have been incredibly stressful for us
Counter example? What am I countering, exactly? I have every sympathy for you. My sister in law is Taiwanese and listening to some of the people round here cheerfully talk of the wisdom of condemning her family to the tyranny of a foreign communist empire does get a tad depressing. Ultimately, though, it remains a fair topic for discussion.

We could talk about it more here...but at least from what I have seen so far no-one apart from Major Mitchell and me appears to care. I may have missed it but I haven't seen any evidence that you give a shit. You are way too happy trolling contentious threads to see if you can get reactions.
Ah, I see. You'd rather stick to your playbook of petty insults than have a conversation. Fair enough, we shall end it there. Off you fuck.

"the tyranny of a foreign communist empire"

NB China is not North Korea.

In other breaking news, Germany isn't Australia.

Both undeniable facts, to be sure, but I'm not sure what your point is.

Ah, I see what you're getting at. My apologies for being dense. I blame the vaccine.

North Korea was historically part of China, but now no longer is. In much the same way that Taiwan was once part of China, but now no longer is. China likes to claim Taiwan is a breakaway province but, as you so rightly say

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 will officially declare independence instead:

Put the shoe on the other foot for a second, what SHOULD the Israeli government have done in response to the rockets?

Yes, the Government in Taiwan officially behaves as if the People's Republic of China is just an upstart breakaway political faction. Albeit an upstart political faction that has inconveniently, if temporarily, taken control of 9.6 million square kilometers of land, over which they should still be recognised as the legitimate authority.

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 carrying out a long and painful campaign of genocide against the people forced to live in it.

Also, Biden refer's to thousands of rockets launched into Israel, but not that the majority of them are shot down before landing.

And not granting Palestinian the equal right to defend itself when land is being stolen and the limited infrastructure is being destroyed by airstrikes.

Or, more accurately, the rockets from Gaza are a calculated response from the mafia like Hamas who see the status quo of hate as essential to them keeping power. They don't give a shit about the desperate people who live there, as proven by how many of the rockets have fallen on to Gaza itself

The Gaza contingent? Keep their heads down as much as possible until the latest nonsense blows itself out, and vote in anyone but Hamas in the next elections. Assuming that the Palestinian powers that be allow elections. It was looking pretty dodgy even before the trouble.
