    Gevalt here we go again.

    Wyly you stated;

    "the Nazi's labeled the resistance of occupied Europe as terrorists as well...did the Nazi's allow the Warsaw ghetto have a military force what happen there? sounds very Gaza like to me..."

    Got it. According to you, the anti-Nazi underground engaged in the same tactics Hamas does now and under the same circumstances. So let me get this straight.

    The Nazis were refugees that fled to Germany to escape being persecuted in other countries simply for being Nazis. Got it.

    Then the anti Nazi resistance engaged in Hamas tactics.

    They used humans as shields. Got it. Oh but wait the Jews who were in the Warsaw Ghetto were just like Hamas. They used their woman and children as shields. They attacked innocent German civilians. They had a charter calling for the death of Germans world-wide. Yah makes perfect sense. Got it.

    Oh but wait. There's more. You stated:

    "... militias fight where they live with whatever weapons they have, they don't fight conventional wars with conventional armies..."

    Right. The Americans when they broke from England used their citizens as shields and went to England and killed innocent civilians.

    Right if the Swiss "miltiia" was attacked by Europe they would use their citizens as shields. Got it. The Swiss Militia is the same as Hamas only they don't engage in terror because no one attacks them.

    Just like Hamas. Right of course. When Israel left Gaza and signed a truce with them, hey Hamas was peaceful. They didn't attack Israel after that. Theyw ere just like the Swiss. Neutral bankers minding their own business. They never once initiated an attack on Israel. Ever. They are only terrorist in defence of their people. They never initiated an attack on Israel. They are just like the Swiss. They believe in neutrality and banking.

    Then you stated:

    "still more stupidity, are the Swiss occupied? are they blockaded from the outside world...do the Swiss live in what is essentially a giant concentration camp?"

    Lol. Do the Swiss attack anyone. Do the Swiss have a charter calling on continous war until they take over their neighbour's countries and claim them for their own just like Hamas?

    Lol, but wait, Hamas did not create the conditions their people live in. No not at all. They took their billions in foreign aid and built roads, houses, hospitals, schools, green-houses.

    Ooopsy you seem to have forgotten. When Israel financed all that, Hamas blew it up. Yes the green-houses, schools, hospitals, mosques, roads, homes, electric grids Israel built for Palestinians in Gaza were part of the concentration camp. Yes. When the thousands of Palestinians went from Gaza everyday to Israel to work that was concentration camp labour. When the Palestinians of Gaza go as we speak to Haddasah Hospital in Jerusalem or the hospital in Tel Aviv for medical care, its for Nazi experiments. Got it.

    Yes sir. The Palestinian population grows at 200 times the amount the Jewish population does in Israel because they are being gassed as we speak and worked to death for Israeli businesses confiscated from Palestinians. Yes. Of course.

    You stated:

    "cowards who dispossess and imprisons a people in a blockaded ghetto indefinitely with a modern army...sounds very Nazi like to me...cowards..."

    Actually sounds like Hamas to me.

    Now I note you like to use the word Nazi a lot. Interesting considering Hamas goosesteps and salutes as per the Nazis. Interesting considering Hamas openly sympathizes with and claims Hitler was and is a hero and denies the holocaust happened.

    Interesting analogy. Interesting too in that Hamas was created by the Muslim Brotherhood whose founders were openly sympathetic to and supported the Nazi Regime. Interesting considering it is Hamas not Israel who blew up their own roads, greenhouses, schools, mosques, residences hospitals if they were financed by Israel and lit their own people on fire for being accused of collaborating with Israel. Sounds like freedom fighters to me.

    Lol this coming from someone who says:

    "you're certainly not a deep thinker so I doubt anything is ever clear..."

    Lol one need not be a deep thinker to be clear on what you are saying.

    Oh but wait you stated"

    "and learn to use the quotation feature ..."

    Why?

    Wait don't tell me. I know! I am a Nazi if I don't use the quotation feature right?

    The Palestinian Authority is headquartered in the West Bank. They are however responsible for governance of Gaza.

    Sorry; Didn't found any matter on which to answer on. Look at that, look at what you offer me in terms of discussion: You ratted out so much around these posts' actual points that there's nothing left but the sad one-liners above, stuck in a repetitive loop mantra-like loop, more directed at convincing yourself than any other interlocutor. Confused, self-contradictory and puerile stuff complete with huge strawmen and acneic attempts at insulting - where have you been all my life? Now, if you have no particular point you want to press on, we'll be taking another caller.

    Or the IDF.

    That's it? A poor insult? I am not convinced:
    - Not convinced that the Israeli state isn't comparable to Nazi Germany and
    - Not convinced I am communicating with someone intelligent.

    By-bye ti-lapin...

    Here is the story from the Washington Post, Jan 27, 2006, one day after the Palestinian election which was highly praised as being the result of the efforts of George Bush and Condoleezza Rice. The title of the story is Hamas Sweeps Palestinian Election

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/01/26/AR2006012600372.html

    Immediately afterward, Bush and Rice denounced Hamas as being illegitimate because they are a terrorist group, and in the West Bank Israeli troops helped the old Fatah Party prevent elected Hamas delegates from taking their seats in parliament, which actually amounted to a coup by Fatah.

    In Gaza, the victory for Hamas was so resounding that the Hamas winners were able to force their way into parliament, which was then called a "coup" by the US and Israel, standing the truth on its head. And this BS has been parroted by the State Department mouthpiece, the Associated Press, ever since.

    Hamas backed candidates won some of the elected positions. That does not mean Hamas is the governing authority. Hamas just has a major voice in the Palestinian Authority.

    Correct, but as this Wiki article states, the Palestinian legislature has not been able to meet since 2007 due to Israeli imprisonment of Hamas legislators.

    Or rather, Germany was left broken and threatened by communism after Versailles. Comparable.

    You know, using women and children is the last line of defense of a nation. France used women and children too during the résistance, as did the jews and the commies. You can be a woman, or even a child and be patriotic. Heck, even Israel uses its own women (and near-children) to wage war.

    And when the Germans found out resistance, you know what they did? They used collective punishment, targeting women, children, elderlies etc - but we know the Israelis are waaayy above that; They'll even tell you they're the real victims, in fact. At least, when the Gestapo commited atrocities, they didn't do so while complaining about their own martyrization.

    Another thing: Have you see how big the Gaza strip is? There is nowhere safe from the IDF, concealed armory or not. In the end, it is the IDF that kills all these people - not "Hamas".

    "their neighbour's countries"? Ever heard about the palestians that were forcibly displaced by the establishement of an exclusive as well as artificial Jewish enclave? These people have been evicted - are evicted - from their lands, for F's sake! And that's coming not from Yanks, not from the Brits, not from the French but from Jews, Jews who continually complained about the progroms and the wrongs that they suffered in their tribulations!

    ... So that the IDF would systematically transforms them to rubble each time a Palestinian looks sideways at a colon stealing his land. In the IDF's logic of cutting Gaza's capacity for resistance to zero (to bring them on their knees), it cannot allow these buildings to stand.

    Are you saying that the Israelis' treatment of the Palestinians is the cause of their demographic boom? Well, in a sense, you'd be right: They're going to win this way, in the longer term. Not with Yank bucks, not with Apache choppers, not with Hasbara but with life and nature and natural roots on the ground. They're going win their right to survive the hard way and it's beautiful. When they'll win, Israel may still live but certainly not as the neo-Apartheist state it is today.

    How so, how does Hamas actually dispossess? And the modern army... still Hamas? :roflol:
    (Makes me remember - you know that Turquish ship bound for blockaded Gaza that the IDF arrested in a near-catastrophic boarding? They rounded up everyting that ressembled a weapon onboard - kitchen knives, screwdrivers, cricket bats - and they hurdled them together for a snapshot that was supposed to "sensibilize" the peeple about all the harm that these terrible weapons could have done in the hands of a fanatic Palestinian. I don't believe that the IDF is as tough as it used to be - fighting with overwhelming odds often makes a weak, panicky soldier out of you. My ribs still hurt about it - but sorry for the disgression)

    Or better yet - why did Israel created Hamas (evil impersonated, if I get your posts right) anyway, if they're such a hassle (Hint: to weaken PLO, which was, of course, evil impersonated)?

    Or, why does Israel and its whores does not recognized it as the democratically elected goverment of Palestine? What, the golem ran amok?

    Every soldiers of every army ressemble nazis (or try very hard to) when they goose-step. And Hamas may be admiring Hitler, but they're not the ones who have kept his methods alive.

    No - Hamas was created by Israel. It's their Frankenstein.

    And, eerrr, there's something lacking in your equation; Why does Hamas "does it", killing themselves, their people, their future, their economy, flailing around wildly and never minding who they hit in a most feeble way? How come people voted for them if they're such obscene devils with no redeeming qualities whatsoever? Are Palestinians as a "race" insectoid-like in their mindset and do not love their children ("eggs/larvae"?) like any other people on Earth? They live solely to suffer and make suffer, and especially the Jews? They're all mad because of their genes, maybe? And you're content with that I suppose? There's no little voice inside that says "Wait! This makes no sense!", ever?

    Everybody can tell why the Israelis do it, but when you'll find out why Palestinians do it, maybe you'll find that huge missing chunk in your equation.

    Well, somehow Sharon, Stalin or Churchill weren't much bothered by their past. It depends on the might of the country you are elected on top of, I imagine.

    Here you might want to sit down for this.

    Israel withdrew from Gaza. That's why it had to re-enter in the latest ground exercise to blow up tunnels.

    I could not agree more with your last sentiment. What is a nation to do when imprisoned, blockaded, denied basic rights and essentials and treated as if Gaza was property of Israel ? It claims exclusion zones around illegal settlements and looks the other way when settlers attack the Palestinian population as if they were the intruders.
    The stranglehold of Israel on Palestine is shameful and an international outrage and would not be possible without US backing. This extends to the UK who are essentially it's poodle and who follow blindly. (No worries, Cameron is on notice)
    I could understand it if this was done from the moral high ground, but it is not and furthermore at least in Britain this is against the wishes of the majority of the public and members of parliament. So much for working in the interests of the public (not).
    Ban Ki-moon was very clear about the root causes having to be addressed. As usual this was rejected by Israel which reveals their constant claims of wanting piece to be yet another (continuous) lie, considering that Israel has in the past undermined any serious peace talks and continues to do so. While talking in a sanctemonious fashion it is determined to maintain the status quo and keep a stranglehold on Palestine land and it's population. The arrogance of Israel is sickening to the extreme,revealing the true nature of it's deluded administration.
    Here in Britain the anger grows with every day and several demonstrations have taken place and further demonstrations are planned. The last one at the Israeli embassy amounted to over 100 000 protesters. I wonder whether the US media even reported it, considering it's media appears to us as very controlled. (A perception shared widely)
    What now ?
    My opinion is that the US and Egypt are anything but honest brokers in their attempt to negotiate a cease fire, due to their very apparent bias.
    How can the Palestinians accept any outcome which imposes the same inhumane restrictions on them ?
    Place yourself in their position and ask yourself if you could. My guess is you could not, so why expect different from them ?
    And finally let's put to rest this non-sense about terrorists. Anyone fighting illegal occupation has throughout history been known as resistance, not terrorism. It is just another ploy by Israel to excuse their monstrous behaviour and no more.

    You still sitting? The UN does not refer to Gaza that way. They are referring to the West Bank.

    Then again some of the UN members do confuse the West Bank for all of Israel.

    Oh go on, look on a map..

    Now really



    I have used it. It helps me differentiate borders.

    I shall address your comments.

    In regards to 1; well it should denounce its charter calling for world wide war against Jews until Israel is no longer a Jewish state, stop launching missiles into Israel, stop engaging in terrorism against Israel,disarm,recognize Israel as having a right to live next door as a Jewish state.

    In regards to 2; I believe you are now talking about the West Bank not Gaza. Or are you confused as to the difference like RiaRAeb? First off the IDF has arrested and imprisoned Jewish extremists on the West Bank. It sometimes does not arrest either Jewish or Palestinians who get into fights. You clearly have never been on the West Bank. You read stories on the internet and presto you are an expert. When you ask a conventional soldier to act as a police officer between Palestinian and Israel civilians things can get excessive. The IDF is not perfect. It has used excessive force. Its used excessive force against Israelis and Palestinians when things get out of control. One would hope in a comprehensive peace settlement if terrorists disarmed as was original proposed and broken by the Palestinian Authority, there would be zero need for an army acting as police. I do agree with you there are times when the IDF like all enforcement agencies dealing with emotional civilians can act excessively. Its not particular to the IDF. The IDF does hold its soldiers accountable. Israel has over 125 Human Rights organizations representing Palestinian civilians who feel unjustly treated by the IDF. Its easy to sit at home on the internet and think you are an expert on how a soldier should react. On the West Bank terrorists dress as civilians. They use children, the disabled, pregnant women, elderly and people with Down's syndrome of visible deformities as walking bombs and weapons smugglers.

    One of the tactics I have personally witnessed is to have a young child or woman begin a fight with soldiers at a check point to distract from another terrorist coming in with weapons or attacking.

    In this part of the world a slight hesitation can get you killed and it has gotten IDF soldiers killed.

    In response to 3- save your righteous indignation for Hamas, Palestinian Jihad. Force 17, Fatah Hawks. Fatah Eagles, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Hezbollah, Tanzim. You even know who they are? These are terrorist groups that hold their people hostage. When Israel went into the Gaza when Hamas was against terrorism and helped their affiliated charities by financing and working along side Palestinians building roads, bridges, hospitals, schools,mosques, homes, green-houses peace worked. It was Hamas not Israel that then was taken over by a terrorist wing which then blw up all that infrastructure. It then went door to door killing Palestinians they claimed collaborated with Israel because they went into Israel to work. They would place rubber tires around their neck and light them on fire.

    You outraged? It seems quite selective. What do you think these terrorist groups are about? You think they ask their people what they think and defend them? Is that your naïve notion? They sit and plan how many civilians they can get killed, to get maximum exposure of those deaths on t.v. That is the mentality. Its a mentality where everyone who dies goes to heaven as a martyr and your people are weapons-get them killed-each one you kill gets another nail delivered in the Zionist coffin. You don't get it. You don't get that the civilian deaths are totally deliberate. Weapons are placed in people's homes. Hospitals and schools are used as military sites. Rockets are launched from hospitals, ambulances.

    Say now where is your selective outrage when Hamas places its military quarters in hospitals and uses ambulances to transport missile launchers?

    Yah I know. Civilians are dying but in your world you do not ask why, you just figure Israel woke up one morning and said, hey its a nice day lets go kill Palestinian children. You want to point moral outraged fingers? Point them at Hamas. You want Israel to stop what it does-its simple, disarm terrorists.

    In regards to 4- so Hamas is on moral ground? Placing its civilians deliberately in the line of fire is moral?

    5-the root cause is terrorism and the refusal of terrorists to give up their monopoly on representing Palestinians-it is also the refusal of the Plestinian Authority and the Arab League of Nations to recognize Israel as a Jewish state-today as we speak the PA which is portrayed as reasonable and moderate states it will never recognize Israel as a Jewish state. It broadcast on its airwaves and on its children's tv shows, that Israel will be re-captured .

    6-the media is controlled by Jews myth is only that-its trotted out each and every time there is a discussion on Israel-its a crock, its an old anti-semetic myth that Jews control the world and its absurd-not only is the press anti Israel,espcially Reuters, API, CNN and the BBC, but how do you explain Al-Jazeera? How is it if the Jews control the media anyone can go on the web-site and find endless anti-Israel and anti Jewish sites? What you think there is no Arab media? You think there are no anti-Israel or anti-Jewish media sources?

    7--Yes how can they? You think Israel would have placed the measures they have down if it were not for terrorists attacking Israel? How about you look at how much of these inhumane conditions are a direct result of terrorist organizations choosing to be at war with Israel.

    8-Well then you feel you know Palestinians. You have put yourself in their shoes. You don't only speak for them, but you presume you speak for me and everyone else because after your out of body experience and floating into the soul of a Palestinian, their can only be one reality, yours. Yah got it.

    You don't speak for anyone but yourself. I lived in Israel I worked side by side Palestinians and Israelis. I do not presume to speak for either. Know why? Because its patronizing and insulting for you or anyone to think you know what is best for Palestinians or Israelis. Do them both a favour and speak for yourself. You do not know how they feel. You watch the t.v. or the internet and that is your reality. You see a stunted, distorted view of the actualreality they live in.

    The actual reality? Its not the internet. Its people on both sides of an imaginary line trapped in a cycle of violence neither has control over at the moment.

    There is no one victim. You see what you want to see. You see bloody children and people screaming as bombs go off. What you do not see is Hamas running from the very buildings these people die in. You don't see Hamas taking over homes and inserting missile launch sites. You don't see them taking over schools, hospitals. You do not see their tunnels. You do not see what they do to civilians that get in their way. Oh Yes you see the IDF attack but what else do you not see? A lot.

    Finally in regards to 9, you show you know not a thing about terrorists. Zero. Only a person born in a sheltered world who takes his freedom for granted would make such a comment that terrorists are freedom fighters.

    You think terrorists give their people freedom? Only someone who has zero clue of terrorist methods would say that.

    The terrorists you now romanticize as freedom fighters would kill you before me. They go after the weak first. They detest people like you-innocent, naïve, armchair experts who have soft hands and butts and do not understand real life.

    You know what a terrorist is? The first thing they do away with is freedom. They don't believe in freedom. They shoot dead anyone that disagrees with their opinion. They demand obedience through intimidation-through the threat of death. There's no freedom-there is a directive-it comes from a man whi claims he speaks on behalf of Muhammed and you will do what he says. There's no discussion. he dictates, you obey his command. Period.

    You disagree, you hesitate, he kills you. You question him or disobey him, he places a rubber tire around your neck and lights you on fire.

    He comes in the night. He takes your nine year old, your child, and the child does his bidding like smuggling weapons in tunnels, setting up booby traps, testing entry points, border security. He places some on beaches to test the response time of the IDF. He'll have them walk up to the Israeli border to test how much time it takes for the IDF to react.

    Freedom? He doesn't ask the parents of the children for permission to take their children? You think Hamas is a cuddly teddy bear loved by its people?

    Get real. They rule by brute force. People have no choice. If they do not allow their homes, schools, mosques to be controlled by them, they are killed. They are dead already long before the IDF might kill them accidentally.

    The only freedom Palestinians have is if they leave to other countries. Their intelligentsia, the artists, the scholars, they flee. They stand more of a chance of Hamas killing them then Israel. They are seen as a threat to Hamas.

    Hamas is not about freedom, its about brute force. Its about believing there is only one way to live. Its a belief that all humans are expendable and life is not precious its an expendable commodity, the more the die, the better.

    Freedom fighters? Really? What next, you gonna run off and join Hamas? You think its the circus? You think these are a bunch of brave underdogs fighting for justice? Can you at least make an effort to read their Charter, see how they treat their own people before you refer to them as freedom fighters. They violate every law we have ever drafted. That is not freedom fighting-its criminal violence.

    People who care about justice, freedom, do not carry weapons. They don't engage in terrorism. Martin Luther King. Go look him up.Mahatma Ghandi, go look him up. Those are freedom fighters and they died for their beliefs. No they were not terrorists.

    You want a freedom fighter, try Lola Hitchmanova of the Unitarian Services Committee. She was a Czech refugee who came to Canada and spent her life as a general doctor in the third world looking after children. She died still in the field.

    Freedom fighters don't kill They do not carry weapons. They are against violence.

    Nelson Mandela. He became effective precisely because he denounced violence..

    Hi Yetzy how you doing?.

    Lol I like Yetzi. If I put Dyah before your name it gets interesting too.

    Seriously can you get serious Dyah. Its referring to the West Bank not Gaza specifically. The IDF does not occupy Gaza. It withdrew I promise. Its in there now but not as an occupation.

    In regards to the West Bank yes the UN calls it occupied. It also calls Palestinians refugees. It has re-created legal terms and given them unique meanings for the Middle East,

    No other people in the world born outside a conflict zone descended from people of the conflict zone are legally defined as refugees of that conflict zone.

    As well in the rest of the world you can not legally occupy a land that was never part of a sovereign nation. The UN changed both definitions for the Middle East conflict and Palestinians.

    Now you want to call Israel an occupier of the West Bank me by guest. Sorry to burst your bubble but Israel left the Gaza. That's why it had to re-enter it. You can't re-enter something you are already in. and occupying. Hamas occupies Gaza and holds the people of Gaza prisoners not Israel.

    But hey if you think Hamas are a swell bunch of guys go live there and enjoy the freedom they offer their people.

    Buh bye now.

    Hey Yetzi hears the text of the United Nations Human Rights Council resolution to launch a probe into Israel's offensive on Gaza.
    Note the bit which states investigate all violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, particularly in the occupied Gaza Strip.


    Here is the full text of the resolution:

    In a resolution (A/HRC/S-21/L.1) on ensuring respect for international law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, adopted by a vote of 29 States in favour, 1 against and 17 abstentions, the Council strongly condemns the failure of Israel, the occupying Power, to end its prolonged occupation of the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem; and condemns in the strongest terms the widespread, systematic and gross violations of international human rights and fundamental freedoms arising from the Israeli military operations carried out in the Occupied Palestinian Territory since 13 June 2014 that may amount to international crimes, directly resulting in the killing of more than 650 Palestinians, most of them civilians and more than 170 of whom are children, the injury of more than 4,000 people and the wanton destruction of homes, vital infrastructure and public properties.

    The Council condemns all violence against civilians wherever it occurs, including the killing of two Israeli civilians as a result of rocket fire; calls for an immediate cessation of Israeli military assaults throughout the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and an end to attacks against all civilians, including Israeli civilians; demands that Israel, the occupying Power, immediately and fully end its illegal closure of the occupied Gaza Strip; calls upon the international community to provide urgently needed humanitarian assistance and services to the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip; and expresses deep concern at the condition of Palestinian prisoners and detainees in Israeli jails and detention centres.

    The Council also recommends that the Government of Switzerland, in its capacity as depositary of the Fourth Geneva Convention, promptly reconvene the conference of High Contracting Parties to the Convention; and decides to urgently dispatch an independent, international commission of inquiry to investigate all violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, particularly in the occupied Gaza Strip, in the context of the military operations conducted since 13 June 2014, and to report to the Council at its twenty-eighth session.

    The result of the vote was as follows:

    In favour (29): Algeria, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Congo, Costa Rica, Cote d'Ivoire, Cuba, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, Maldives, Mexico, Morocco, Namibia, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Sierra Leone, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, and Viet Nam.

    Against (1): United States of America.

    Abstentions (17): Austria, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Gabon, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Montenegro, Republic of Korea, Romania, The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and United Kingdom.

    Yetzi with the best will in the world I think you are arguing with the wrong person, you really need to take it up with the UN if you don't like the term Occupied Palestinian Territories. I like this game you keep coming up with your opinions and I keep finding UN articles to prove you wrong.

    The ball as they say is in your court, Dyha

    PS love Dyha, would you mind if I changed to it, DyhaRia I kinda like the irony!:fingerscrossed:

    When the fighting stops, Khaled Mashaal should be tried for war crimes.

    Vacant school and human shield? So it proves that the propaganda has lots of issues.
    I really respect Hamas that cautiously provides shelter in vacant places and condemn Israel for finding children to bombard.
    We all know that Hamas does not have such camps that Israelis have, it makes no chance for them unless put their little weapons in their vacant places.
    Israelis shouldn't find hospitals and children by their deliberate high-tech targeting.
