    Don’t know if this will help, but while I don’t have any immediate relatives who are dems, I do have a number of distant ones who I have had to interact with. My usual approach is to steer clear of picking sides on politicians and instead stick to simple issues of common interest, especially those that have immediate impact on the individual level. If you can get them thinking of politics in terms of issues instead of party planks then you’ll have a much easier time.

    As much as I agree with you, individual criticism of one person’s policies and leadership is actually quite refreshing in the face of the all the ad hominen and spiteful attacks one usually sees.

    How do you confiscate land if there’s no one losing their land in process?

    Start by reading up on neo-Darwinism

    Who’s being displaced? The people living on the land in question are Jews to begin with and there are no Palestinians getting kicked out for any reason. You couldn’t name one person who’s being displaced as a result of this even if I asked.

    Off a building? And let him die without having to deal with the consequences of his policies? I’d rather he live but be removed from office and forced to sign up for Obamacare.

    “What do you mean collective judgement? I believe in self-determination which is the right of ethnic groups to have their own nation.”

    I could almost laugh at how blind you are to the meaning of your own words. Your own words express that you believe self-determination is a COLLECTIVE right and that all people must be judged by the ethnic group they belong to. The very fact that you would judge people as groups and not individuals makes you a collectivist, one who uses collective judgement.

    Collectivism is the essence of communism, socialism, national socialism, and fascism. Moreover it is the antithesis of conservatism, which stands for INDIVIDUAL rights, INDIVIDUAL responsibility, and the INDIVIDUAL right to self-determination.

    It is Communism that seeks to destroy cultural groups because it seeks to create a single collective. Capitalism is ambivalent to the existence of groups so long as individuals are not discriminated based on their group.

    As for banks being the same as the state, under communism the state tells you how much you’re allowed to earn, where you’re allowed to live, and where you work. The state owns everything and you are simply a pawn that exists to follow orders. Banks have no such power. Even if you claim that the banks control that using the Federal Government as a middleman, all that proves is that the Federal Government has too much power. If the government can’t control people, the banks can’t use them.

    Jews never claimed to be a race. There is no one word in the English language that accurately describes what a Jew is. Jews are a nation in the sense they share a common history, language, and culture, but even a Jew who rejects this culture is still considered a Jew. Being Jewish is hereditary the way you would describe a race, but at the same time one can freely become Jewish through conversion. Judaism is a religion yet not all Jews adhere to it. So in conclusion, Jews are neither a race, a nation, or a religious group yet they possess aspects of all three.

    Moreover, you ignored my point. You started off using a Biblical quote to attack Jews and yet here you are claiming that the Jews have zero connection to the very passage you quoted.

    As for converts not being Jewish, I shall now quote the Bible myself:

    Exodus 20:8-10 (AKA the fourth commandment)

    Remember the Sabbath day to sanctify it. Six days shall you work and accomplish all your work; but the seventh day is Sabbath to HASHEM, your God; you shall not do any work – you, your son, your daughter, your slave, your maidservant, your animal, and your CONVERT within your gates.

    Conversion to the Israelite faith makes you a member of the Israelite nation, period. The Ten Commandments themselves recognize this irrefutable fact.

    You know, there are several things that I can never understand about you.

    -You claim Jews are a race and that Christians should despise them on a racial basis. But the majority of those figures in Christian scripture were Jewish, as were nearly all the original Christians. Thus, many Christians likely have Jewish ancestors.

    -You use a passage from the Christian Bible to prove Jews are evil, yet you have also claimed that the Jews of today have no relation to those Jews. You can’t have it both ways.

    -In this comment you try to claim you’re a Christian who opposes Jews, yet I seem to recall that you have attacked Christianity in the past as a Middle Eastern religion that is contrary to European values. And yet you still use the Christian Bible itself as a source.

    -You claim to be a conservative yet you oppose free market capitalism, insist upon collective judgement, and frequently declare people guilty until proven innocent.

    You are nothing but a propaganda machine that compulsively regurgitates every antisemitic claim, argument, or accusation he can regardless of the lack of evidence, in spite of evidence to the contrary, and with no regard for the fact that you repeatedly contradict yourself.

    I think this is great news. After all, should Qatar attempt to illegally pass through Israel’s legal blockade that’s practically an act of war. And since the top Hamas leaders are all hiding like cowards in Qatar…..

  • [3] August 27, 2014 at 10:58am

    Egypt and Israel have a peace treaty and Egypt is actively aiding Israel against Hamas. Syria and Israel have no peace treaty and Syria actively supplies weapons to Hezbollah. The only time rockets were fired from Egypt was during the brief period the MB took over. Since then the Egyptian military has clamped down on it themselves.

  • [1] August 26, 2014 at 10:41am

    So a long term truce between Israel and Hamas is reached through negotiations between Egypt and the PA? Did I miss something? How can there be a truce if neither of the warring parties are at the table? A more accurate headline would read that an agreement on a long term truce PROPOSAL was reached by two third party groups that are only indirectly involved.

    Does stormfront pay you to post here nil? Stick to the topic and don’t attack the source.

    Why on earth would Hannity need a PhD? He’s a journalist. Having a PhD in no way demonstrates that one is smart anyways. A stupid person can get through college if they work hard enough. All a PhD shows is that you have spent extra time becoming an expert in a field instead of just someone who is well-versed in it.

    Besides, if we’re talking about stupidity, I feel the need to point out that you clearly know nothing about Fox News or who its commentators are. After all, anyone who actually watches Fox would know that Limbaugh in no way works for Fox. Limbaugh has a radio show and a website.

    Prisoners? How on earth do they qualify as prisoners. Israel doesn’t even run a post office in Gaza let alone a prison.

  • [2] August 25, 2014 at 3:31pm

    Can you say desperate? You’d think a journalist would actually want to report the news not start a publicity stunt movement. This guy should quit his job, become a community organizer, and then run for President despite having no political record.

  • [1] August 25, 2014 at 1:11pm

    True but the reason why isn’t because of Christianity. After all, before that the Emperor kept the people complacent by sending people into the arena for death matches. When Christianity came around, naturally such distractions vanished and everyone realized just how terrible Rome was.

    Personally I don’t hate the idea of classes or at least a test where someone has to demonstrate familiarity with both gun safety and the law. After all, your having a gun helps no one if you end up shooting yourself in the foot.

    Chemical countermeasures. Not bad. As someone in more or less the same field I find this most impressive.

    And since Iran is funding Hamas, Iran isn’t on defense at all.
