    Ask and you shall receive. A SJP or similar group was once caught trying to raise funds for a “charity” that was actually a known Hamas front group. Funding terrorists and child murderers is the same as being one.

    “At the time, the ship was in international waters north of the Sinai Peninsula, about 25.5 nmi (29.3 mi; 47.2 km) northwest from the Egyptian city of Arish.[1][5]”

    So that adds up to about 20 miles off the coast of the peninsula where a war was being fought? That’s about a 30 minute drive, possibly less. Wow. Such a long distance from an active war zone. There’s no way that the most sophisticated US spy ship at the time could POSSIBLY be perceived as a threat at such a long distance from the shore.

    Let’s cut the sarcasm and legal talk and be reasonable. The US Liberty has no business anywhere closer than 100 mi from the war zone. In fact, there are records indicating that orders given for the Liberty to be much farther away than it was though the order never reached the ship. If being in “international waters” was enough, why would the Liberty be told to keep its distance?

    Moreover, I really don’t see what international waters has to do with anything. There’s no law that would have prevented Egypt from sending ships into international waters for the purpose of waging war against Israel. There’s no law forbidding the two nations from engaging in combat in international waters. The idea of international waters is purely for establishing legal boundaries of a nation’s influence. It has nothing to do with where a war can be fought outside of dictating that two nations cannot fight a war inside a third’s territorial waters.

    “At the time, the ship was in international waters”

    At the time the ship was stationed close to an active war zone. I can draw a straight line from Egypt to Israel such that the Liberty would be closer to Israel’s and the Sinai’s respective shores than it would be to the line I drew. Compared to the distance the Liberty was from the shore, I drive farther during my morning commute. Would you feel comfortable if a spy ship was sitting less than 25 miles off the coast of North Carolina?

    Wow. That’s some proof. Meanwhile Al Qaeda has only claimed credit, had 19 members on the planes, most of whom were Saudi, and had a genuine motive too.

    Seriously, that argument dried up 6 years ago. First off, whether someone seems to be celebrating its a matter of opinion. Second, if motive is all that you need, then Britain and Israel must have attacked Pearl Harbor. (And yes I’m aware Israel didn’t exist in 1941).

    Ranking of countries by number of countries traded on the NYSE

    1. US
    2. China
    3. Israel

    Yep, not that important.

    Actually, she almost certainly believes it. After all, she probably believes that being nonpartisan means that her opinions are undivided on the issue.

    Of course I do. But since most people haven’t heard of Kol Nidre I feel compelled to state the facts on the issue.

    My goal isn’t to win. My goal is to prevent them from convincing others with their lies.

    Besides, sometimes I even get the pleasure of using their own sources (which they clearly didn’t read) to contradict the very argument they sought to prove. I think it was anabasis here who once used a study on genetics to prove the Khazar lie when the study actually disproved it.

    The Ten Commandments is the Christian teaching that you are required to tell the Truth.

    Actually, the ten commandments is a Jewish teaching that Christians borrowed. Moreover I’ve already provided quotes from jewish law books that specifically state that Jews cannot lie for personal benefit and which clearly show that Kol Nidre does not mean that which you say.

    You probably don’t even know what language Kol Nidre is written in.

    If we cut every penny of foreign aid we’d still be borrowing money at effectively the same rate. The money we send to israel makes up less than 1% of our deficit.

    Now you’re spreading lies too? “thou shall not bear false witness” is a quote from a Jewish, Hebrew text. Your precious “white people” simply borrowed it over a thousand years later.

  • March 19, 2014 at 2:26pm

    Were you trying to make a point?

    I ask because your comment sounds like a five-year-old’s excuse for misbehaving. Israel was attacked yet you make it sound as though that has no meaning.

  • March 19, 2014 at 9:57am

    So let me get this straight. You can’t blame Israel for being the aggressor so you make up a baseless accusation so that you can, right?

    Here’s a simple question: show me one incident where Israel EVER attacked its own soldiers. Can’t do it? How about one incident of Israel using road-side bombs.

    Your argument amounts to “If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it must be a chimpanzee pretending to be a duck.”

    Personally, my problem with those who push for a two-state solution is that they always focus on the “two-state” aspect without actually caring about whether it solves anything. I’ll support two states if it would solve the conflict, but the key word must be “solution”. A solution that solves nothing has no purpose.

    Another thing, Communists hated Zionism.

  • March 16, 2014 at 4:54pm

    @just
    Now who’s conflating things. There were several Zionist movements occurring in parallel and all were different. There were even religious Zionists. And Herzl, considered the father of modern Zionism, was neither a Bolshevik nor Eastern European.

    @anabasis
    “No tzion, your link displays to us that the Rabbis teach us the opposite of what they teach their congregations. People can read source text, and observe human behavior.”

    Actually, that’s just you talking out of your ***. The link I gave cites the Shulchan Aruch, the Mishna Torah, and the Talmud itself, all of which are legal texts written by Jews, for Jews. Those are what the Rabbis teach Jews.

    Simply put, you haven’t provided ONE piece of supporting evidence for your claim and haven’t even tried to contradict my iron clad evidence. You are a coward who can’t admit he is ignorant about what he talking about.

    Here’s a little test, just to demonstrate how little you know. Don’t worry, it’s an easy one that any religious Jew could answer at the age of 14. What language is Kol Nidre written in?

  • March 16, 2014 at 2:27pm

    Anabasis
    Who says they don’t mean what they say? You’re reading a translation. For all you know the words meant something very specific in the original language when it was written.

    In any case, my link proves the rabbis say the opposite of what you say.

    Show us where I used the word hypocrisy in this thread.

    Wow. Seriously? I was calling you a hypocrite and that’s the conclusion you reach. I was pointing out how you’re using kerry’s position as an excuse but you attack Schwartz for doing her job all the time.

  • March 16, 2014 at 1:41pm

    Israel targets terrorists and hits civilians by accident. The terrorists target civilians almost exclusively. Big difference. And of course the Palestinians have more casualties. Israel has a superior military. That’s normal.

    As for illegal bombings, show me what law or treaty was broken. And as for Palestinian deaths more have died in the Syrian conflict in the past few years than by Israelis. And Jordan still holds the record for total since the Black September massacre. Even in the 1st intifada more Palestinians died at Palestinian hands than israeli.

    You really need to stop changing the subject when you are losing the argument.
