    So you support censorship as well?

    I guess when their murder of wounded civilians is filmed for the world to see, it doesn't quite sit well with them...

    Hang on a second, if your criteria for which side to support is based on freedom of press - then how the hell can you support 'palestinians' who don't tolerate media dissent


    God, that's silly.

    Don't change the subject.

    You just posted a thread in which your central point is that you don't support Israel because you deem them to be silencing the press by sanctioning Qatar's Al Jazeera.

    So if freedom of press is your issue, then I suggest you look at what happens to dissenting journalists in 'palestinain' society and the complete lack of freedom of press there.

    Pathetic.

    Looks like I've hit a nerve...

    I never changed the subject. The subject is that an official state, supported by many western nations is trying to oppress a media outlet, most likely show Israel for how they really are.

    You assume that because I am anti-Israeli I am therefore pro-Hamas or something, which I am not. Just because one party (Hamas) does one thing, doesn't justify the other side (Israel) to do something similar, which you seem to be hinting at.

    There is no justification for this, yet you seem to be trying to find a way to do just that...and that is what is pathetic brah.

    Oh ****...I forgot about that...

    Yeah I guess the foreign minister was right to call for the news agency to be removed from Israel. He must be concerned about their health and safety and would like them to evacuate. Likewise with his call to boycott Arab businesses in Israel, I'm sure he just doesn't want them to get into trouble with the local racists. The FM of course not being a racist in the slightest of course.
