    I got a good heads up today on a book that I agree that I should try to read soon.

    The West Bank was part of Jordan when Israel and Jordan went to war in 1967.
    Jordan relinquished its claim on the WB in 1988 and ceded the WB to Israel by treaty in October 1994.
    This, the WB has not been occupied by Israel for almost 25 years.

    I totally agree.... this is an insignificant sum in comparison to the value of
    even one life really...........

    and Israel has already developed the technology that I believe can save the world economy......
    and environment.

    Easy one. Thanks for asking, Dutch. The reason is that Israel (and Trump) tout it to be a shining light of respect for Human Rights, and it obviously isn't. ISIL does not. Hamas does not. Israel does. And it is a blatant lie.

    So that is why. Capiche?5

    No, do not capiche at all. Seldom does Israel being chastised for the "human rights violations" per se - Israeli citizens enjoy equal rights and I can sight multiple examples to you. What is Israel blamed for (besides being full of Jews, that is)?

    Fascism
    Ethnic cleansing
    Apartheid
    Colonialism
    Being occupant
    State sponsored war crimes against Palestinians

    Rinse, repeat. And none of it is true, of course.

    Welcome back, by the way :hug:

    Fighting terrorist trying to harm your country is not a war crime.

    It is actually criminal to it’s own citizens the restraints they hold.

    They don’t commit war crimes! They defend themselves from a genocidal enemy. An enemy that has no problem firing missiles from school yards, apartment building and mosques. Store weapons in hospitals. Use children as human shield. They are sick people

    And here is the story of what Israel and the U.S. did to subvert the free-and-fair election ..... hooray for Zionist justice!!! Read it if you dare, Dutch.Then imagine if that were attemtpted in reverse. Wait!!! It is happening ....Mueller's investigation!! Since the U.S. and Israel have declared this to be appropriate international behaviour, Russia has joined the chaos.

    Yet another mega-fail, Dutch. What do you use for facts .... just asking.

    "they do persecute their own who breaks the law" ... you are hilarious, Dutch. Many thanks.

    A country, interfering and meddling in another country's internal affairs... WHAT HORROR!!! :hiding:

    And Gaza is not even a country... nor is the other whatsitsname, Palestinian Authority... so whuts a big deal?

    Now, would you recall 700 Lb Democrat guerrilla Ted Kennedy, conspiring and colluding with russkies, trying to subvert American Democracy and and deny Ronald Regan reelection?

    You do not? Neither do recall it this shameful event the rest of the American Liberals :nana:

    The Middle East is a large region.

    But there is a common thread.
