    That you ashes?

    No they weren’t. They were caught filming and one person thought they didn’t look scared or shocked enough. And why should they. When you grow up in a society that sees riding the bus as a potentially fatal decision, planes hitting a building is only slightly out of the ordinary.

    They have nowhere to go? Let’s check the map.

    The tan areas are built up towns and cities. The orange are refugee camps. The white is open area. You never even bothered to research if your claim was even remotely true.

    Israel has, since the start of this offensive, launched thousands of airstrike. Yet the deaths are in the hundreds. In contrast, the pro-Russian forces in Ukraine killed almost 300 people with one missile. How is it that one missile can kill 300 yet Israel can’t do much better than 1 death for every 10 airstrikes? Simple, Israel intentionally misses civilians 90% of the time.

    Here’s some facts. Many Palestinians do leave after being warned, so your excuse that they have nowhere to go is false. If they have nowhere to go, then why are they going somewhere.

    Second, Hamas has intentionally placed it’s hideouts and weapons in densely populated areas to increase civilian casualties. You are playing into their plans hook, line,and sinker. Congratulations on being so easily duped.

    Third, most revealingly, Hamas issued a statement telling civilians not to listen to Israeli airstrike warnings. Not only does this prove they want civilian casualties, it refutes your claim that they have nowhere to go. Why tell people not to leave if they can’t go anywhere anyway.

    Cancer and AIDS are two entirely different kinds of disease. AIDS is caused by a virus infecting a person’s immune system so scientists trying to cure it seek to either destroy the virus or neutralize it’s ability to replicate (this case is the later). In this case, the virus’s specific DNA is targeted.

    Cancer isn’t caused by a virus. It’s caused by mutations in cellular DNA. As a result, despite the commonality of the disease, each person’s cancer could very well be genetically distinct and each form of cancer could be caused by slightly different mutations.

    Besides, there are some cures for cancer well into the experimental phase. Even among existing treatments there have been improvements.

    Where are they supposed to go? It’s not like Gaza is one big neighborhood. Israel is focusing it’s efforts on the northern part of Gaza and the border region. There are even UN shelters taking people in.

    To say they have nowhere to go would be similar to saying that if part of Manhattan were to flood the people there would not be able to seek shelter away from that portion of the island.

    “Even with antiretroviral therapy, patients are still susceptible to other health implications, including the weakening of heart muscle, bone disease, kidney disease and more.”

    That sounds like keeping them alive? Besides, based on the description this new method wouldn’t even be the one-time cure you claim. Being able to stop an infected cell from creating new viruses is a useful technique but there would be thousands if not millions of such cells in an infected person on top of the viruses that already exist in similarly large, if not larger, numbers. And remember, while the cure will only affect infected cells, chances are the delivery system won’t be able to tell the difference.

    In short, this isn’t even the magic cure you claim. It’s quite possible, perhaps even likely, that this treatment method will differ from existing ones only in the sense that it causes fewer side effects.

    What are you talking about? It would be the pharmaceutical companies that would provide he cure so they’d still profit.

    So when my grandparents were fighting for this country they were only “pretending”?

    Says the man who is always whining about how there are too many Jews on the Supreme Court. Hypocrite.

    Who in their right mind bulldozes an olive grove? Those things are worth money.

    Here’s what I don’t get. Why is it that Jews building homes on land that no one else is living, while having full legal permission to do so, a problem at all? Unless the Palestinians are planning to create a Jew-free state the presence of Jews on land they want for their state is irrelevant.

    So a video from Israel can’t be trusted but a homemade video is irrefutable? Do we even know that this was Gaza? Why are there people speaking fluent English in the background?

    @nil
    “You are trusting Israel to tell you the truth?”

    Trusting Israel, a country with a free press, to tell the truth about what’s happening in Israel? Why would ANYONE do that? We should trust the government owned news source of Qatar. They’re MUCH more trustworthy when it comes to news about Israel.

    Seriously nil, do you read up on American news by watching Russia Today? Who else are we supposed to trust? Better yet, give me one ACTUAL reason not to trust the Israeli sources. By reason, I want iron clad evidence of false information being distributed.

    So what about those from other countries who volunteer to fight for the US? That’s happened on multiple occasions.

  • [1] July 21, 2014 at 9:10am

    Israel is the other side? Since when? Besides it’s not as though the reverse case doesn’t happen. Look up Rick Rescorla, a man of British birth who enlisted in the US forces to fight in Vietnam despite not being a citizen. Was he a traitor to his country too?

    Incidentally, this man Rescorla layer went on to head up security for a portion of the world trade center, somehow predicted the buildings would be attacked, and dotted after successfully evacuating the vast majority of people from the floors he was responsible for.

    A blockade is an act of war. Israel is at war with Hamas. Hamas controls Gaza. Conclusion, blockade is legal. Why don’t you show me a law that says otherwise? Also, Israel wasn’t alone in its efforts to strangle Hamas. The Egyptian government has always supported this effort with the sole exception being when the Muslim Brotherhood took over.

    Why should they offload their cargo? Ever hear of customs? The whole problem was that Israel, as part of its blockade, would only allow certain forms of aid through. So Israel required that all aid be checked to ensure it was in line with this code.

    As for Israel stealing the aid, that’s just a baseless accusation. Israel sends its own aid to Gaza daily and with the world watching it’s completely foolish to do anything so petty.

    Lastly, as far as “BOARDING a ship is an attack like a home invasion”, the whole problem was that the ships were attempting to cross into territorial waters without permission, which isn’t so much a home invasion, it’s just a plain old invasion. Would you be against border guards checking boats from Mexico trying to dock in the US without clearance? Didn’t think so you hypocrite.

  • [1] July 21, 2014 at 12:13am

    No. They got fed up with Arafat’s corruption and Hamas was waiting to accept them with gifts. That’s how Hamas won an election.

    “When the peaceful floatilla went to aid the Palestinians and the terrorist Israelis attacked them, they, too, captured an Israeli and didn’t kill him.”

    Wow. How many distortions can you squeeze in one sentence. First, the flotilla (yes that’s how it’s actually spelled) was made up of multiple ships all of which were seeking to violate Israel’s blockade for purely political reasons. How do we know it was political? Because they could have docked their ships in Israel and had the cargo shipped over land to Gaza. Israel even offered as much. They chose not to because it was never about the aid, it was about sending a message.

    Second, Israel boarded all but one of the vessels attempting to pass through the LEGAL blockade of Gaza, and, meeting no resistance, inspected each vessel before permitting it access to Gaza. No attacking, no terrorizing.

    It was on the last ship that violence broke out and this has been shown definitively to have been caused by the people on board. They even recorded messages beforehand where they stated their intentions. Why did they attack the boarding party? For the same reason they refused the offer to unload in Israel. Six ships being peacefully allowed to enter Gaza after inspection by patrols doesn’t send the right message. A violent clash between armed Israelis and “unarmed” (you don’t need a gun to injure and kill) protesters makes headlines.

    In short, the whole fiasco was a propaganda ploy.

    Tons of Israelis? Name one person in our government who is a citizen of israel.

    To sum up my argument, your list only proves that the people listed on it are feminists. The fact that you can list a few Jews who are/were feminists has nothing to do with all the other Jews in the world. Likewise, bringing up Karl Marx’s ancestry in no way serves to convict all Jews of being Marxists. It would be like me claiming that every leftist President in US history had a white Christian mother. It may be true, but it’s a meaningless piece of trivia.
