    Re: Israel and its neightbors are at it again

    I think you're completely missing the point. Ignoring that you clearly want all **** out of Israel as the solution, Israelis are fighting for the right to live without fear of terrorist attacks every time we get on a bus or go to sleep at night and Hamas, and by extension the majority of Palestinians, the majority being those who aid and abet and vote for them, are fighting for the "honor" of killing every *** who doesn't flee their path and every Arab who they view as a *** lover. We frankly don't really care how evil you think we are or how righteous you think the Palestinians are; how Right and Correct the Palestinians are for suicide bombs and rocket attacks or how much Israel is a monster for killing terrorists and destroying weapon caches. So keep on cheering a people who wish Israel's destruction.

    If Israel falls, Europe is next.

    however, if isreal is taking land to stop the war and death against their people, that's called war, a defensive war, self defense. isreali especially has the right to self defense when the middle east trying to destroy them for at least 30 years now.

    That made more sense. Like PFSS said, you've been listening with only one ear. Violence in general is condemned by the rest of the world. If you miss it, it's not the fault of the rest of the world - they're not obliged to send these condemnations to your mailbox personally.

    However, you are entirely right in that the rest of the world tends to admonish Israel rather than the Palestinian fighters, since Israel is an established state and thus easier to get hold of. And I agree with you, it's wrong.

    "...waging war with palestine for like 30 years or so by the act of war of sending high tech fighter planes and gunships across borders into palestine and kidnapping and killing palestinians"

    I think he was imitating your style, and giving what was in his opinion a similiarly unbalanced account - but this time, from the other side - of what was happening. I'd say that's pretty bad form.

    And you keep fighting ghosts. No-one here is cheering for the destruction of Israel. There is even precious little understanding for Palestinians' actions - I haven't seen even those people who have viewed them fighting for what they think is their home to say they're doing a right or a justified thing.

    I believe that there are not many who agree with taking the terrorists out. The core message of the dissenting posts, as far as I can tell, is that that's where it should end. There should be no bombs in the veggie markets. If they're sitting in a too thick civilian populace, root them out face-to-face. I personally lauded and cheered Israel moving ground forces to Gaza, hoping it would make the operations more to-the-point and surgical, which airstrikes rarely tend to be. Guess my hopes weren't well-placed, but one can always hope.

    As to the Europe falling, there might be a few unadapted ragheads in France and Germany, but they're not going to topple anything. Mainly because they're rabble venting their temporary frustrations, not folks who think they have their lives on the line.

    Re: Israel and its neightbors are at it again

    well said wildberry, i actually am agreeing with most of your entire post this time

    though i have personal disagreement with one thing:

    if u choose or even just let hitler/hamas/osama bin laden/jim kim ill/bush/saddam/stalin/etc.. be your leader you are agreeing, supporting, and siding with it, and ARE JUST AS GUILTY AS THEY ARE.

    if u sit and watch a uber heinous crime such as rape of a lil girl and do nothing to stop it, your saying that, that rape of the lil girl is alright and acceptible. the same is true with "terrorism". if u let your neighbor strap a suicide vest on and blow up innocent familes merely eating food at a restuarant or riding a bus to go to work, you're just as crminal and responsible as the person actually doing the crminal act. or for example if u let a nieghborhood be run-ruled by a gang its your own fault. clean it up yourself. and if u can't than some one else (the police) BETTER. and if that neigborhood's police wont clean up its own community, than another neighborhood or the state or even country better send in its police and clean it up. and if none of those forces take responsibilty than it falls to other countries or the entire world to come in and clean it up.

    HUMANITY and what is acceptible human behavior and actions, has NO borders. americans are jsut as human as iranians or russians or germans or scandanavians or chinese or otehr asians or isrealis. we are ALL HUMANS, and their IS acceptible human behavior and actions and unacceptible human behavior and actions. and WE ARE ALL RESPONSIBLE FOR EACH OTHER. HUMANS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR HUMANS.

    PEOPLE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PEOPLE. yes, there is state sovereignty and it should be respected, but when they fail to be responsible for their own people, than the world and its people 's responsiblity over-rides state sovereignty.

    as u can see i support "pre-emptive war" it's our duty as humans to be responsible for humans. be it terrorism, genocide in africa-darfur, starvation-brutality in north korea, chinese police murdered buddhist monks, etc...

    it's the world's, the peoples of the world 's responsiblilty to stand up and say no, and if that (condenation-diplomacy-peacefulness) doesnt work, than violence and force and war is unfortunately required to stop the inhuman actions and behaviors of people or countries doing inhuman things to innocent people within their own coutry or other countries.

    i'm more scary (hawkish) than dick cheney, if i was president of U.S. and if it was possible for the U.S. military, i'd ahve it clean up the entire world of all evil and unaccpetible human behavior and action i'd send the military to middle east cleaning out terrorism, to all of africa (not jsut darfur, all of africa is ghastly with its warlords-druglords running around pretending to be governments), north korea, etc....

    unfortunately, even the U.S. military, has it's limits. we can barely handle the middle east, let alone dealing with the rest of the world as well. and many countries are taking advantage of this....russia.... V.V
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    And you keep fighting ghosts. No-one here is cheering for the destruction of Israel. -wildberry

    actually there's quite a few protest movements that ARE even now in my own U.S., even dressing like terorists.... actually using exact language of calling for the destruction of a country-people, aka genocide.

    freedom of speech-expression doesn't mean total freedom....supporting, aiding, or embeding a criminal or worse enemy of the state is a serious crime that not even freedom of speech/expression would protect if it had a vioce lol.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    And you keep fighting ghosts. No-one here is cheering for the destruction of Israel. -wildberry

    if isreal is fighting ghosts...i'm scared because they are pretty real and i thoguht ghosts weren't real...

    most people (hopefully) aren't calling for the destruction of isreali, BUT they are allowing people and countries to attempt and engage in trying to destroy isreal with both silence and in-action.

    i am STILL WAITING for the U.N., the security council, and the world itself to tell the middle east to STOP blowing up-murdering innocent poeple in isreali AND the rest of the world, like the U.S. (9-11), the train-subway bombings (madrid, spain), the busses (in london, britain), the wedding cermeony (?, jordan), the bombing and terorrism-murder (indonesia), the assassinations of politcal figures like abuto (whatever her name) (in pakistan? or palistin. i forgot which one. it been awhile), etc....

    is there any proof that this is indeed the case ?
    This is essentially how Israel was created. The Zionist movement which IIRC began in the late 1800's and early 1900's in the UK and US decided that they would emigrate to a particular corner of the earth and declare that land as their own country. IIRC they mooted a number of options and settled on what is now Israel. They then began mass migration into the region, swelling the moderately small native Jewish population, with the stated intent of declaring the land their own state.

    If, say, a group of Saudis started buying up land in Washington DC and started moving hundreds of thousands of Saudis into DC - against the law when required and using force if needed and then declared that DC was their country - would the US be justified in being a bit pissed?

    however, if isreal is taking land to stop the war and death against their people, that's called war, a defensive war, self defense. isreali especially has the right to self defense when the middle east trying to destroy them for at least 30 years now.
    Given Israel is hell-bent on putting people into settlements in the space between 1967 and the wall they are building it is laughable that they claim that are trying to create a buffer zone.

    You might note that moo-cow, above, is a member of the Settler movement and has stated that he believes that all the land up to Jordan is/should be part of Israel and his movement is actively working to settle people in the West Bank to justify claiming as much land as possible for the Israeli state. An action that Palestinians get a bit tetchy about.

    this is NOT my quote, u altered the bottom part of it. that's defamation and/or plagerism. i demand u or a moderator corrects this.
    I don't think anyone but you thinks I am trying to claim you said those words, just pointing that many of the actions of the Palestinians you describe as being evil have also been committed by Israel, or very close equivalents and that you can swap "Israel" for "Palestine" and still have a perfectly accurate quote.

    Re: Israel and its neightbors are at it again

    your view is not matching reality

    reality or fact:

    isreali's home has been the middle east just as long if not longer than the arabs-muslims. in fact, arabs-muslims probably didnt exist (as far as i know) during mesopotamia. during mesopotamia, there was Babylon, Ur, and Sumer city-states ONLY in the middle east. within babylon at least there was the jewish people. though they never had their own city-state home. than babylon kicked them out and they went over to egypt. where they were brutalized and ensalved. then they fled "the religiously famous moses and parting of red sea". and they went back to the middle east and created their 12-13 tribes. i think than one of these tribes would break off from abraham family and become what would be the arabs and mecca and muhamaed prophet (if there's any mistakes, arabs, please post the corections, and i'll fix it).

    the middle east is the cradle of much of civilization. it belongs and is home to many many types of people. jewish people do NOT "own" all of the middle east. nor do arabs "own" all of the middle east. its home to ALL 3 major religions and its people. home to ottoman turks and persians and palaistinians too. the middle east doesn't belong to any one group of people. its the home to many groups of people and they ALL have right to live at-in their home of the middle east. THE problem is that even in 2009 they still haven't grown up and learn to live together peacefully.

    the STATE of isreal CAME INTO EXISTANCE, as part of the surrender of germany to the allies at the end of ww2 and its holocaust (~1945 and a few years after). NOT what erroneous stuff u said.

    read and study history, your comments are flat out blatantly wrong and erroneous.

    opinions and views is perfectly ligitimate,

    but not a fake dilusion of history, facts, and reality. that is not acceptible. it is misinformation. spew of lies. unacceptible.

    and the holocaust DID happen, the world was right to finally give the jewish people an official home back in their real home of the middle east. now if only arabs would live peacefully.

    i mean yes, isrealis and arabs have obviously split now, but they are actually all 1 big family. both isrealis and arabs ARE ALL sons and daughters of Abraham. if only abraham's children would grow up and stop fighting amongst themselves.... sighs....
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    there is NO equivalence between the middle east and the rest of the modern world, be it isreal or U.S. or whoever.

    the closest equivalnce to the middle east and arabs is africa and africans (in africa)

    it makes me sad that there's such people who truly believe that isrealis are equivalent to arabs-muslims-terrorists.

    it makes me sad that thre's people who are unable or don't wanna see the monstrous evil that some people carry out in behavior, actions, or mindset. be they a domestic criminal or world criminal (terrorist).

    actions of isreal and middle east as being equivalent is irrefutably absurd and crazy.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    as to the settlement conflict,

    i know NOTHING about this. it wouldn't surpise me if isreali's are being abusive and i completely condemn them if they are and if the palistinians are being abusive, i condemn them too if they are. wrong is wrong.

    You are incorrect.

    There is the issue that over 1000 years ago the land that is now Israel was controlled by Jewish people, however I note that you are in the US. Unless you're Native American or in the process of signing your property over to native groups I'm going to call bull**** on your beliefs of rights of people to take land that some of their ancestors might have owned over 1000 years ago.

    For the rest - what I stated is generally true. Wiki has it's faults, but you might like to do some reading rather than base your opinions off completely made up stuff.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zionism
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Territorialism

    Nobody here is denying the Holocaust, however regarding your statement

    and the holocaust DID happen, the world was right to finally give the jewish people an official home back in their home of the middle east. now if only arabs would live peacefully.
    You might like to note a few quotes from Ben Gurion, one of the founders of Israel and Israels first Prime Minister:

    ""If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti-Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?""

    "Let us not ignore the truth among ourselves ... politically we are the aggressors and they defend themselves... The country is theirs, because they inhabit it, whereas we want to come here and settle down, and in their view we want to take away from them their country. ... Behind the terrorism [by the Arabs] is a movement, which though primitive is not devoid of idealism and self sacrifice."

    Re: Israel and its neightbors are at it again

    i agree actually with most of this post, now your making sense (to me anyways)

    as to what the english colonists (and other europeans like the spanish in west NA, "central"A, and SA with the aztecs and incas and west NA natives) and americans (U.S. or "soon" to be U.S. people) did to the natives,

    WAS GENOCIDE. we OWE native americans and blacks A LOT. individually, i did not genocide naitive americans or enslaved blacks, but as i white person i am responsible for the actions of other white people even in the past and as i am an american (U.S.), i'm repsonsible for actions of other americans (U.S.) even in the past.

    as an american (U.S.) and a human being i am ASHAMED and disgusted and angry at what we did to native americans and blacks in the past and some of us still do-treat even today. it was wrong and it is wrong. two very very very dark times in our history. that must always be remembered, taught, and stigmatized so we learn from these mistakes and don't do again...right (sarcasm)....japanese internment camps due to war with japan in ww2 and present day fear and abuse of arabs or arab-americans due to terrorism, hostility towards mexicans-hispanics due to illegal immigration, etc...maybe some day we and all humans will learn from history....anyways.....

    we (americans-U.S.) DO have our own HUGE "FAULTS" (native americans and slavery and our current torture and abuse of prisoners in our fight against terrorists to name a few. well, i don't think anymore, since in about week we have a new president, obama)

    maybe i'm the only american who openly ommits (man, my grammer is bad...*ADMITS*, not ommits: leave out) our faults, not all of us americans are completely arrogant :P

    though technically, the americas (north america=NA, "central" america="central"A, south america=SA) is really fascinating. the americas actually has NO native humans. even "native" americans are actually immigrants from asia during the ice age, just as white americans (U.S.) were immigrants from europe during columbus and the age of exploration.

    though even more techincally, u can say, that the entire earth has NO native humans, except south africa where genecists say (science-wise) all humans trace back to. the mother (science "eve") of all of humanity was in south africa according to dna-genes.

    this doesnt answer the race debate and i definately don't wanna get into it.

    were these south africa original humans "black" or "white" or "asian" ? this we don't know. so let's not get into any race debate.

    anyways (i'm getting way off topic. i'm interested in many things:P), there's also some things that i disagre with:

    isreali's didnt take the land. the EUROPEAN POWERS (and america-U.S) (at end of ww2) GAVE isreal the land in the middle east. if the arabs wanna be mad they should be mad at the europeon powers, not the jewish people.

    though i must point out again, that the middle east IS the jewish people's land and home. just as IT IS the arabs' land and home.

    the settlement conflict is another issue, and there may well be abuses by isreal with it.

    u and the isreali guy u quoted, are right, all of the european abuses of jewish people is NOT the arabs' doing or fault. they are arabs not europeans. however, NOW they are abusing the jewish people, jsut as europeans had done in europe.

    the jewish people DO have a right to be in the middle east. the european powers and america got that part correct. the problem is the arabs need to understand this. the middle east is as much the jewish people's home as it is the arabs.

    They gave it to them, in part, because so many of them had migrated there with the intent of taking the land and creating their own state. As I said - if a large group of Saudis started buying up land in Washington DC and installing Saudi people in DC - by force if required - would they have the right to declare DC to be their own country?

    u and the isreali guy u quoted, are right, all of the european abuses of jewish people is NOT the arabs' doing or fault. they are arabs not europeans. however, NOW they are abusing the jewish people, jsut as europeans had done in europe.
    The Palestinians are kept in pretty much abject poverty by both Israel and their own leaders. Israel controls huge aspects of life in both the West Bank and Gaza and is in the process of annexing as much of the West Bank as they can justify - many people would view this as Israel abusing the Palestinians.

    the jewish people DO have a right to be in the middle east.
    Why?

    I'm not saying that they should leave, there are now facts on the ground that cannot be undone (though Israels continued attempts to create further facts on the ground aren't exactly helping the peace process) without huge human rights abuses. The state is there and should continue to be there, but what you seem to be saying is that the state should continue to be there because it is Jewish - and I ask why?

    Incidentally - and this is a general question - why is Judaism regarded as a major religion? I mean - it's got something like 14,000,000 supporters?
    ~1% of the worlds Muslim population, about 0.5% of the worlds Christian population, about 1% of the worlds Hindu population, about 3% of the Traditional Chinese and Buddhist populations (each), about 1% of the non-religious population and about 4% of the 'primial' religious population...

    I mean it's size is notable compared to druze, ba'hai and the sikh population... but "Major"?

    PFSS' Quote:

    Why?

    the 6,000 year history of the middle east being their (jewish people's) home.

    babylon (is the oldest dated human civilization, going to either 4,000 bc or 12,000 bc, though let's jsut keep it simple with the 4,000 bc date. i could go into the 12,000 bc and explain it all but that would take up an entire new thread, so let's ignore the 12,000 and jsut stick with 4,000)

    the jewish people existed during the babylon city-state in mesopotamia (modern middle east). ACCORDING TO, AT LEAST, THE BIBLE. or the old part of the bible, forgot the name for it at the moment, old testament!!! thats it!yay remembered!! proud of myself!!! i'm very absent minded!!

    so take 2000 AD - (-4000 BC) = 2000 + 4000 = 6000 year history of that being their home.

    i'm not sure when the arabs first appeared, in mecca and muhamed. i'll let some one else who knows, adress this. well actually the ancestor of arabs and jewish people IS abraham (but abraham, i think though i could be completely wrong, was after the babylon period) as is said in both the bible and koran. both jewish people and arab people are children of abraham, but i don't know if arabs wanna be mixed in with with ancestors of jewish people and the arab people, during babylon. i'll let them decide. if they do, than they too have a 6000 year history of the middle east also being their (arabs) home as well.

    and of course this gets into the science of ancestry-genes, which i don't know anything about. i don't even know if the modern jewish people are the same gene'd as the "jewish people" in babylon as is said in bible. let alone bringing the modern arabs and their ancestry-genes into it as well. i mean NO disrepect to either jewish people or arabs. trying to tread as lightly and carefully as i can. i mean NO disrepect to either jewish people or arabs.

    why is Judaism regarded as a major religion? -PFSS

    your right in terms of numbers, its not that popular.

    HOWEVER, it is the "father" religion of both cristianity and islam

    judiasm split into christianity-catholicism
    judiasm split into islam

    jewish people-religion->abraham-> christian-catholic people-religions AND arabs-muslims people-religion

    judiasm-jewish poeple's god is yewah (i think) (very un-involved in humanity)

    christianity-christians-catholics changed "yewah" into God (and he is much more "personal" or involved in humanity. christ and salvation and all that)

    islam-arabs-muslims changed "yewah" into Allah (and i'm not sure if he is personal and involved in humanity or not. have to ask an arab)

    take this very very generally, i know both christian-catholics and arabs-muslims probably don't agree with me saying that judiasm-jewish people split into what would be islam and chrsitanity-catholic,

    if this is flat out incorrect to connect christianity-catholicism and islam to judiasm, i apolize to all and will take this out from my post.

    i'm not religious, i don't beleive in a "religious god", but i do have some knowledge of the religions (hopefully correct) and i certainly understand that they are culture and thus very important to humanity, though i don't beleive in the "faith" of religions itself.

    for please forgive any mistakes or ignorance to any religion or outlook i may have on all and any of them. if i'm wrong about anything, inform me, and i'll imedaitely corect my mistakes.
