I'm only going to post once on this forum, so listen up.
I'm SICK and TIRED of people even having to ask each other's opinions on the Israeli/Palestinian issue - it should be obvious to all right-thinking people.
Let me introduce a few home truths to you all:
Israel gave the Palestinians official chances to negotiate in 1993, 1996, 2000 and 2001 as well as unofficial talks in between all of these periods. The Palestinians were offered 97.3% of the West Bank and Gaza Strip with the remaining 2.7% used as a no-man land. The Palestinians have repeatedly refused these offers.
Arafat is a terrorist and has been proven to authorise and finance suicide bombings against innocent Israelis. Israel is a democracy and you have to understand that the only ways to respond to terrorism are to negotiate and take security measures. The former has shown no sign of working (just encourages Arafat) and the latter gets Israel into trouble with hypocrtical nations worldwide like Britian and America (who killed 7,000 innocent people in Afghanistan alone) A security wall is necessary to keep out terrorists. Although it is not all finished yet, there has never been a case of an area being targeted where there was a wall. It is not to fence Palestinians in, rather to protect Israelis. Why cant any of you realise this? It's disgusting. You people really make me sick. Israel has been the best freind any democratic and peaceful country could want.
In 1948 (when Israel was formed) there were 850,000 Jews living in Arab countries. The were expelled and persecuted and forced to leave their homes and go to Israel. There are now only 7,000 left and they live in persecution (ie. synagogue bomb in Turkey last month, in Tunisia last year) HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR EVERYONE TO REALISE THAT JEWS AND ISRAELIS ARE PEACEFUL PEOPLE WHO ARE SICK TO DEATH OF LIVING IN FEAR OF ANTISEMITISM AND PEOPLE TELLING THEM HOW TO RUN THE ONE COUNTRY THAT THEY OWN AFTER HAVING FLED TO AVOID THE DEATHS OF 6 MILLION? Why does no one ask any questions about the 850,000 displaced Jews who are now housed in Israel when the 700,000 Arabs who left Israel in 1948 (as they were told to leave by the advancing Arab countries as they could move back in when the Israelis had been killed) are used as negotiating tools for future 'peace' agreements?
Why won't any Arab countries recognise Israel's existence?
Why do countries such as Britain and USA bomb kill and attack their enemies like Saddam and Bin Laden when they expect Israel to negotiate with terrorists of exactly the same ilk? All Israel wants is to live in peace. Can you imagine what its like for a country never to have had peace since 1948 when it was founded?
If Palestinians want the West Bank and Gaza Strip so much why didnt they rebel pre-1948 when Egypt and Jordan owned it? BECAUSE THIS IS A RACIST WAR AGAINST THE JEWS, THAT'S WHY. No one else matters to them.
If they really are Palestinians (ie want back the land of Palestine) why don't they march into Jordan and take it? It's a fact that over 70% of biblical Palestine (where they claim their ancestors came from) is modern day Jordan. Why doesnt any Arab state help them financially? The only Arab states to have funded Palestinians are Iraq which gave $25,000 to the family of each suicide bomber and Saudi Arabia which raised $37m in a television appeal for Hamas.
Why cant the one Jewish state defend itself the way any normal country should?
Why are there 30 Arab dictatorships and nothing gets said?
Doesn't anyone actually realise that Arabs get more rights living in Israel than they do in their countries of origin?
Palestinians have been kicked out of almost every Arab country and treated like scum. WHY PICK ON ISRAEL??????
Now sit here, read this again, and think about this next time the subject comes up or it says a lot about you as people.
Nice that you'll only post once, so that you won't have to defend your opinion. Shows courage.
Yawn. What a load of bog standard, selective, misleading, vicious Zionist propaganda.
Can we not quote the whole post.
Meh... I don't actually care.
Can I just say, we have had this debate rage on all the time, it never ends. Either the people are to the extremes of "evict all non jews" or the other extremes of "Jews go away etc"
This is just stupid. Now we have another person igniting the debate, with mroe fuel for the anti Jews to use. Great.
