i pointed out that suicide bombing should not be condoned.
Suicide bombing doesn't implicate attacking civillians.

There is very little difference between Israel using its technological might to attack 'terrorist' targets and Palestinians using guerilla warfare tactics to attack the occupying force. Both ways lose innocent lives.

at least some people here can see that not supporting Israel does not mean you can lose all moral principle.

I'm sure of it. There are those that are sympathetic towards the Palestinians, and at the same time, I don't blame those living in Israel who aren't.

It easy for us looking in from the outside.

I had already tried to point it out to him twice . I can accept the Bigcnee was perhaps more helpful with his comments though.

This is often a problem. i.e. when people give little/no thought to their phrasing.

Though the Israeli army is more into asssassinating key people in Hamas than killing civillians.

unless youve been living in a cave, you should know palestinian suicide bombing is purposely levelled against Israeli civilians.

that difference being political and critical.

Exactly, funny how some people cant understand this.

(Does anyone know whether Kilroy refering to "Arab States" or "Arabs". If Atab states, I'll retract from my original post)

Back to the original post, this woman (like myself) has seen first hand how inhumanly the Palestinians are treated under the Israeli regime. It reminds of "Time to Kill" about a black family who are treated like scum by two white men. It was based on a time when there was little respcect for black people. The girl in this family id only seven and on many occasions gets racially abused (having a heavy metal cans hurled at her literally braking her body. On another occasion the girl is raped again and again and left for dead.). How would a father react? As you would expect him to, get a pistol and shoot the men who committed these hideous acts. It is arguable whether he had the right to kill them but could he not claim the insanity plea? So he did. And this was a defining moment for US "civil liberties".

Don’t suicide bombers have the right to claim an insanity plea? We all know they feel as though they may as well be dead. Isn’t it rather naïve just keep on using the same tedious "advocating the use of terrorism, killing innocent civilians" is wrong argument. (which of course is right but naively taken out of context)

I believe in freedom of speech with one exception; when it comes to all people who condone any form of discrimination ("Nazis", Zionists and those who believe that abolishment of slave trade is "saddening for society and values in the 21st century"). Would it be possible to remove such posters from this thread which I started?

Well if you don't choose your nationality how can you decide that someone is 'gulity' because of theirs?
By going to the state of Israel, and living there, Israeli citizens are guilty of contributing to an appartheid state.

Though it is a smart military decision. The Israelis can also be accused of killing civillians in the process as well.

Not much different from the Americans bombing a civillian restaurant to try and kill Sadaam.

I think you should change your wording to "Israeli government".
You can't just single out a right wing government.

So a 10 year old child is guilty because he/she happened to be born in that part of the world?

Bigcnee, I really agree with you. I think yuo've got to see it for yourself before you pass any judgment because it is scary how the media manages to hide certain aspects of this conflict.

Your definition of discrimination might not be the same as another persons.
