    Leaving aside the wider geopolitical and religous issues and people's varying opinions on them let's call this for what is is; a guy tipping a disabled person out of a wheelchair onto the floor which is ****in disgraceful.
    Sadly a lot of people here seem to be lacking simple human empathy for those they deem to be part of the ''other'' category.
    Whereby things they would never accept to be done to them or their loved ones or done to members of groups they approve of, they wouldn't mind to be done to the ''others'' group.
    And as seen on this thread some would even go as far as championing/supporting/defending what basically constitutes as abuse.

    Damning evidence right there.
    We should abuse all disabled people.

    Poor guy was probably trying to pass or trying to get home.
    If that was the case then he could have and should have taken a different route. The secured area wasn't that big. Yes he was disabled and taking a longer route may be a hassle but that does not mean he should have been given an exemption and that he could just walk straight into a crime scene.
    Moreover, I can understand how the officers were anxious with the disabled man's approach as there were numerous incidents where terrorists had disguised as disabled people and hidden bombs under their baggy clothes whilst they sat in their wheelchair. The officers are humans too and they too have families. Not saying the man-handling was necessary but one could never argue that the officers' lives don't matter on the other hand.

    Wars between the two will never end?

    If they both learned to share
    Then..no more nightmares
    Peace would be everywhere
    If both took care each other...

    No point making these kinds of threads , these tards have a bias towards Palestine since they have a hatred of Israel.
    See how easy that was?

    Problem is, if you see these events through the distorting lens of partisan subjectivity, you just end up sounding silly.

    To those without a dog in the fight it is clear that both sides behave appalingly, and both sides have genuine grievances. Anyone who tries to claim that either side is lillywhite and blameless is simply delusional and blinded by vested interest.

    This is a self-fulfilling prophecy, as it will obviously assume that anyone who doesn't come to such a conclusion of equivalence must have a dog in the fight.

    Yes, both sides have 'grievances', but that doesn't make them all equally legitimate. The Palestinian side are demanding rights which the Israeli side, for the most part, already have, and at talks and debates the latter demand ever-increasing special rights and considerations.

    Anyone who tries to claim that either side is lillywhite and blameless is simply delusional and blinded by vested interest.
    There's a big gap between saying that and an equivalence between the two sides.
