Let’s see what the latest figures say- from the BBC- You same yankeedoodles are acting all jingoist and like anything has been gained? What did the deaths achieve? Let’s see what the latest figures say- from the BBC-
About 1,000 - mostly civilians
No precise data on Hezbollah dead
Soldiers: 114 (IDF)
Civilians: 43 (IDF)
700,000 - 900,000 (UNHCR; Lebanese govt)
500,000 (Human Rights Watch)
$2.5bn (Lebanese govt)
$1.1bn (Israeli govt)
Funny how it says ‘no precise figures for lebanese dead’ isn’t it?
What were you going to do? CARPET BOMB THE WHOLE PLACE UNTIL ARABS STOP FIGHTING BACK? I really despair that people who can’t see the flaw in this strategy were allowed to live past their first few gasps out of their mother. Do you really believe this was a war to be celebrated, or that it will even stand for anything?
All of the above were people. Most had mothers, fathers, lovers or children anxiously awaiting them. Do you get so wrapped up in your moral absolutes (‘terrorism is wrong’, ‘we mustn’t negotiate’) that you forget the deaths of all the innocents? And now the UN resolution- what did Israel achieve?
As much as i don’t want to agree with Mahmougjoliygk, (or whatever his stupid name is), when i turn on the tv and see Israel playing Liverpool in a EUROPEAN CUP football match, and simultaneously Israel is on tv fighting with hezbollah/slaughtering indiscriminate arabs, i wonder- do they really want any arabs near them at all?
Wouldn’t a better solution have been a European state? Because i know of the pain suffered on all sides to artificially insert the Zionists and random tagalongs into Eretz-Israel, i feel insulted and disgusted seeing them compete for sport like they were in Europe.
You must all know that saying about cake. Well that had cake, and they ate it, now they’re killing for more cake. They’re confused. Europe isn’t the historical, biblical birthplace of the world’s jewry (sephardim).
It is however their home for all of the time since that book was written. It must have been terrible, dreadful, vile to live in post ww2 Poland, or any other affected country. So why want to return?
A lot of people, when talking about this conflcit, just act like ‘Israel’s just there, forget about it’. That’s bullshit. Why? There was no Israel just 60 years ago. They HAVE stolen land (internationally ‘legal’ and ‘illegal’ forms of theft) from the ancestors of the people they now oppose.
They HAVE transplanted a culture alien to that environment, and given it massive armament to resist any evolution (i know the arabs were trying to kill/oust the jews, i accept that, but my point is Israel is a piece that doesn’t fit)
There is plenty of land in the world that is unoccupied. At a guess, i’m thinking that Russia, Canada and Australia are candidates.
There is no institutional European fascism anymore, we fixed that (or is there? I believe not). Saying Jews can’t return Russia because of pogroms, and most of Europe because of the final solution, is ridiculous. It’s a bit like saying Jews can’t return to Eretz Israel because Babylon and Rome had beef with them. It’s historical now.
Partisan yankees, who say shit like ‘we should carpet bomb Iran, Syria, Lebanon and Palestine, thet’ll learn em’- i don’t care what you think. Waste your own time and whoever reads your post if you want.
Intelligent respondents- zap et al, why not think about this idea.
I really don’t know why seeing an imbalance, and suggesting maybe small group a, rather than vast majority group b is the cause (in a non-emotional way, causality), is so revolutionary. They are the variable
