    Oh it’s CLEAR that they support Hamas – eh Monk?

    I am certain many Israelis as well as those that support them want to see Hamas destroyed. So some of them hate and want to kill each other…
    The sword cuts both ways.

    Do you think ALL the military action Israel is taking is validated?
    Are you one of those that believe ONLY war, death and destruction is the answer to this conflict?

    That’s exactly the childish level of response I would expect from someone like you IndyGuy (defending a loser like Hannity).
    Neither of you are capable of entering into a real debate.

    What does it matter if I identify them as a “terrorist organization” or not?
    What does that accomplish?
    What does that label mean? Does it dictate that I or others posting here – or folks like Hannity or his guest – use certain ‘protocol’ when talking about them?
    What does applying that label accomplish?

    So what exactly constitutes a “terrorist organization” and if labeled as such… What all does that then mean?
    So someone calls them or agrees (or disagrees) that they (or any other group) is terrorist organization…
    So what?
    Then what?

    Does that label then determine some preordained set of actions or way to deal (or not deal AT ALL) with them?
    How is the basis of the conflict then to be resolved?
    Is war / UTTER KILLING of ALL those that would say they are part of such an organization then the ONLY answer?

    What really is the point of this whole “terrorist organization” labeling discussion?
    What does it achieve?
    What is Hannity – or any of you seemingly fighting so hard to give them this label – attempting to achieve by doing such?

    What does it matter if I think Hamas is a terrorist organization or not?
    I know very little about Hamas.
    So if they are.. So what?
    What does that label mean to the overall scheme of things?
    Just because some label them a “terrorist organization” does that mean those who oppose them should… What? ONLY seek to KILL ALL of them?
    Who makes up Hamas?
    How and where do they operate?
    Does calling them a “terrorist organization” mean NO ONE can deal with them or those who oppose them should NEVER attempt to seek resolution to their differences?
    And as for Hamas and those that ‘support’ them… Does that make them ALL terrorists too?

    So many of you seem to believe and act as if simply calling some group of people terrorists determines some pre-ordained set of rules for engaging them. If so, just what can and can’t be done to / with them? And how do those actions help achieve a resolution to the conflict / killings?

    Tell me Tennessee Veteran. Do you agree 100% with Smokey_Bojangles contention that “All Muslims either directly or indirectly support terrorism”?
    THAT is the reality I was talking about with my comment.

    No IndyGuy…
    You keep it short and sweet because you are unable to bring anything of substance or value to the discussion.

  • [-3] July 25, 2014 at 5:25pm

    What’s YOUR point?
    What did I write (about Hannity) that has motivated you to suggest that I should got over to Israel and offer my comments?
    What EXACTLY was the nonsense I wrote? That Hannity fails to respectfully engage in a discussion HERE in America on his show about this matter? How is that nonsense?
    Would Hannity last a minute over there spewing his ignorance? Isn’t he the one with the ‘microphone”? And just what is he accomplishing (or seeking to accomplish) with his ‘ANSWER THE QUESTION!’ Is Hamas a terrorist organization? show-boating?
    Did Hannity do, say, offer ANYTHING that brings value to the discussion on this matter?
    Seems to me he is more concerned about ratings and profit-margins than actually addressing the WHY behind this / these conflicts – and how they MIGHT get resolved.
    Kind of like what you bring to the table here. (Less the profit motive)

    It doesn’t matter one bit whether or not I think Hamas is a terrorist organization.
    If I say ‘Yes’ – So what?
    If I say ‘No’ – So what?

    I actually know very little about Hamas – their make-up / their ‘official’ positions / Where and how they operate.
    Again – my view of them has zero importance to my comments about Hannity and how he treated his ‘guest’ – and what Hannity’s true motives are for how he conducted his discussion with the guest.

    Let me ask you… If SOME who call themselves Hamas are indeed terrorists (as you or someone else would label them) – Does that mean EVERYONE who associates themselves with Hamas are terrorists? (Do you classify everyone in the U.S. govt based on the classification of one or two or a few?)

    If two ‘parties’ hate each other… Does it matter what label they apply to the other?

    And you utterly failed to address my question as to what I believe is most important in this matter and that is… Can the majorities who live in this area work out their differences? How do folks truly concerned about those folks – those innocent people being killed by the hundred / thousands… How do folks work to truly TRY and resolve these conflicts? Do you think Hannity brings anything to achieving those goals with his line of questioning / treatment of his guest?

    Just what constitutes a “terrorist organization”?

    You fail to actually respond to dizzzave’s points. All you are offering is an excuse as to why (you believe) Hannity should be given a pass for not entering into any real dialogue with the guest. Because it’s HIS show. So what? It’s his show. That is but a very lame excuse for being disrespectful and failing to actually engage those Hannity invites on to his show (to supposedly – I would guess – discuss the topics).
    Or was Hannity’s real goal in inviting such a guest just to belittle and denigrate him?
    What does Hannity achieve but such a line of questioning?
    So he gets a person to admit (or not admit) that Hamas is a terrorist group?
    So what? What does that achieve? What does that bring to any discussion on the matter?
    If someone does not call Hamas a terrorist group does that mean that person somehow supports Hamas or condones what they do?

    You and Sean must often dine together. You both offer the same level of mindless discourse.

    And so when someone asks a Hamas supporter (or perhaps other) if they think Israel (or America) is a terrorist country – and they respond ‘Yes’…
    What’s the point?

    Those who hate Israel (or the U.S.) / those they seek to attack and kill – hold pretty much the same view against their enemy as those holding that view against that enemy.
    They each hate each other and want the other destroyed.
    So what’s the point in asking such an obviously answered question?

    The questions need to focus around…
    Is there any way their / our differences can be resolved?
    Is there any chance the ‘majorities’ can find a way to live in peace – and push the extremists (further) to the edges?
    How do we stop the senseless killing? (Where hundreds / thousands of innocent people are being killed)

    Just what was Hannity trying to achieve with his line of questioning?
    Hannity has no desire to seek a reasonable, respectful dialogue on this matter. He is out to get ratings (and subsequently self-profit from such.) He brings NOTHING to any discussion or attempted resolution of this matter.

    Try ‘walking in their shoes’ for once Hannity.
    TRY getting an understanding of HOW and WHY others believe what they do and maybe, just maybe you might be able to bring something of value to this and other similar matters. Otherwise… Just keep being divisive and lining your pockets off of such.

    And the other half would believe it was a sign of the supposed coming apocalypse (with many of those probably ‘acting out’ against others / non or other believers).

    I really don’t see many ‘facts’ – be it from Petty OR this supposed fact checking professor.

    Can anyone identify how many people who go to war are motivated by their religious beliefs?
    Considering that many of today’s ‘militant extremists’ are not part of any ‘formal’ military… Not being forced to fight via their gov’t mandate… Then they are ‘volunteering’. So again I ask… How does one then measure or assess what motivates them to fight?

    Gee Monk that’s a brilliant suggestion.
    At least Perry offered to instead hold a “thoughtful discussion regarding the humanitarian and national security crises enveloping the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas,”
