    'palestinian' terrorist opens fire on Israelis. The Terrorist seems to be the only casualty just now thankfully.

    Israeli media is reporting Friday that a suspected Palestinian terrorist opened fire in the 'West Bank'.

    IDF soldiers reportedly fired back. No soldiers have been reported injured.

    The suspected terrorist is reportedly in critical condition.

    Perennial 'palestinian' terror society names their youth football teams after terrorists.


    Weeks after Palestinians sought to boot Israel from world soccer, Palestinian participants in a youth tournament in the West Bank town of Abu Dis, east of Jerusalem, were set to play for teams named after terrorists who have killed numerous Israeli civilians.

    According to Palestinian Media Watch, squads such as the Martyr Abu Jihad team, named after a Fatah founder responsible for the deaths of 125 Israelis, and the Martyr Khaled Nazzal team — dubbed after the secretary of the Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which orchestrated the Ma’alot massacre in May 1974 in which 22 schoolchildren and 5 adults were killed — are set to take part in official matches to be played throughout the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

    Other teams are named after Abu Ali Mustafa, the late secretary-general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and Mu’taz Hijazi, an Islamic Jihad member and released prisoner from Jerusalem who attempted last year to assassinate Yehudah Glick, a prominent activist working for the Jewish right to visit and pray on the Temple Mount.
    Naming your youth teams after terrorists that slaughtered children in a school. What a sick, vile entity.

    Israel’s instrumental use of the word “security” is jus elastic and arbitrary. Poor ploy to limit the freedom of movement of Palestinians who have no recourse.

    Yes, of course.

    What with 'palestinian' militia groups existing before the state of Israel.

    And then pre-1967 we saw the Fedayeen bravely target Israeli farmers.

    Long before a single settlement, long before any 'occupation'. At a time when Jordan and Egypt were occupying the so-called 'palestinians'.

    Try and read a history book instead of learning history from your Imam.

    Palestinians set fire next to the ancient Jewish cemetery in Hebron. 3 fire crews were required to bring the blaze under control.

    Jewish town of Hebron.
    Funny "Jewish town" that is right in the middle of Palestinian territory and where the Jewish proportion of the population is less than 0.5% by even the most generous estimates.

    Perhaps a history lesson about Hebron is in order. Otherwise you may end up looking rather foolish.

    Generally the "nationality" of towns is determined by their current or at least recent demography and status, not that of thousands of years ago.

    The question should be who is the Aggressor/Oppressor not who attacked who.
    I would say that given the genocide the Jewish people suffered, given the fact that the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem was a close personal friend of Hitler's, given the Secretary-General of the Arab League called for genocide of Jewish people in 1947/48 and the five well-armed, professional armies of the Arab states ganged up on Israel (a tiny state taking up 2% of the Middle East, with a population of 500,000), given the Arab world repeatedly tried to wipe Israel out during the 1960s, 70s and 80s, and given they repeatedly refused reasonable peace offers, given Hamas' charter incites genocide by calling for the murder of all Jews everywhere.... we know who the aggressor is.

    The aggressor is an ideology that cannot abide Jews living in the Middle East unless they live as dhimmis. It is an ideology that counts ISIS, Al-Qaeda and Hamas as its greatest champions. It is an ideology that saw an innocent French man beheaded yesterday and 15 innocent British tourists gunned down in front of their families. The aggressor is an ideology that throws gay men off tall buildings and performs "honour" killings against "wanton" women, and commits genocide against the Yezidi and the Kurds (the latter of which have close relations with Israel). It is a death cult ideology.

    This. Hebron is perhaps the "most Jewish" of the west bank towns. Its strong connection to Jewish history and culture is undeniable.

    Apart from the ridiculous (and frankly ironic) nature of such an analogy, I wasn't talking about 'rights', but de facto situations. Istanbul, once Constantinople, has huge significance to Greeks (and to a lesser extent Orthodox Christians generally), but it would still be obviously incorrect to refer to a current event there as happening in the Greek city of Constantinople rather than the Turkish city of Istanbul.

    Undeniable only in the sense that it's subjective to start with.

    I would say that given the genocide the Jewish people suffered
    At the hands of someone else. Besides which the colonising of Palestine began quite a bit before the Holocaust anyway.

    given the fact that the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem was a close personal friend of Hitler's
    "Close personal friend"? While Amin al-Husseini (who was not Grand Mufti any more by this point) did spend most of WW2 in Germany and other Axis countries, he only met Hitler once, in late 1941.

    Also, plenty of people aligned themselves with the Axis in WW2 who we'd hardly consider responsible for the Holocaust - Finland, for instance.

    given the Secretary-General of the Arab League called for genocide of Jewish people in 1947/48
    "We are fighting for an Arab Palestine. Whatever the outcome the Arabs will stick to their offer of equal citizenship for Jews in Arab Palestine and let them be as Jewish as they like. In areas where they predominate they will have complete autonomy."
    - Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League, May 1948.

    Funny way of calling for genocide, that.

    and the five well-armed, professional armies of the Arab states ganged up on Israel (a tiny state taking up 2% of the Middle East, with a population of 500,000)
    The Arab armies had various different goals, so to describe them as 'ganging up' is somewhat inaccurate. In fact, the King of Jordan had gone as far as negotiating with the Jewish Agency for months, usually through Golda Meir, about him leaving Israel alone if he could take over the West Bank (and despite it seeming that this plan might fall apart, was tacitly what happened in the end).

    Also, with the possible exception of a few weeks just after 15 May 1948, the Zionist paramilitaries and then the IDF had the military advantage for virtually the entire war from 1947-49.

    given the Arab world repeatedly tried to wipe Israel out during the 1960s, 70s and 80s
    Nope.

    and given they repeatedly refused reasonable peace offers
    The Arabs were willing to talk peace plenty of times and Israel threw it in their faces. There were plenty of Arab peace feelers after the 1948 War. President al-Za'im of Syria even declared his intention to be the first Arab leader to make peace with Israel. Ben-Gurion turned down all peace offers, and was only willing to accept one based on the military status quo, so took just a ceasefire instead. Sadat was willing to talk peace when he first came to power in Egypt in 1970. It took the Yom Kippur War and US pressure to get Israel to come to the table.

    given Hamas' charter
    Written in 1988, which Hamas don't refer to any more (it doesn't even appear on their website), and have all but renounced (they've said there are internal reasons why it can't be officially amended or rewritten). And:

    incites genocide by calling for the murder of all Jews everywhere
    "Under the wing of Islam, it is possible for the followers of the three religions - Islam, Christianity and Judaism - to coexist in peace and quiet with each other."
    - Article 31 of the Hamas Charter.

    Again, funny way of calling for genocide.

    Hamas remain undoubtedly virulently anti-Semitic, but genocidal? No.

    The aggressor is an ideology that....(etc - to summarise, you mean Islamism)
    So no ideology other than Islamism has ever been anti-Zionist? Secular nationalism (both Palestinian and pan-Arab) doesn't exist? Indeed, Nasser was pretty ruthlessly anti-Islamist during his rule in Egypt....
