Israel is a useless turd who doesn't give a fuck about honor, about dignity, about respect, about life, about holding truces, about agreements, about peace or anything to do with any form of law, international or otherwise.

Israel is full of shit.

Whining and bitching about Hamas all day long, but then being a murderous scumbag that kills thousands of women and children.

Out of all the 'rockets' fired by Palestinians. Only 26 Israelis have been killed. EVER.

From all the 'precision' weaponery that Israel employes. Tens of thousands of Palestinians have been killed. Then we have the non weapons based war, where children are literally jailed, beaten, tortured by Israelis.

Fuck Israhell.

Just now they are stealing more land and plan to build 3000 more settlements.

Same story over and over again, you have to be dumb as fuck to not realize what's really going on. They are the ultimate evil in the region and that's that.

I remember since 97 all the 'settlement expansions'. There is no real 'peace talks' with Israel, they do not want peace. Negotiations are just for fun to ridicule palestinians and buy time. Every single time they kill more, steal more, that's it.

Israel is also the very country that supplied the 'intel' for the invasion of Iraq. No weapons of mass destructon there huh.

People who have been observing the conflict for the last few decades know this.

Israeli politiicans were just talking about 'returning to the table and holding onto oslo accords' WHAT oslo accords? Israel does not follow or obey ANYTHING agreed upon in the Oslo accords.

It's pure evil and pure cynicism at it's finest.

Now that Palestine has been upgraded in the UN, the next step is the ICC. International criminal court. Then Israel will be put in it's place and be judged for the war criminal that it is.
Are Israelis subhuman?

You're ranting but not answering the question.

If a rocket is fired into Israel, it is now considered a legitimate military action, yes? Therefore, Israel can and will retaliate with full military force, correct?

No. The rules of engagement state that any targeting of civilians is prohibited by international law, but then again the same laws also state it is illegal to transfer any of your own civilian population into an occupied area.

So Israel really has no regard for what is or isn't "legitimate"

The reason Israel are opposed to this is because they have breached countless international laws and if Palestine is officially recognised as a state, there is more chance that Israel can start to be brought to book for it's crimes.

1. What are you referring to when you say 'Israel'? Does 'Israel' have a right to exist?

2. The Jordanian military has killed more Palestinians than Israel, yet you don't seem to rail against that organization and/or the government that utilizes it at all. If your primary concern is pointing out crimes against Palestinians, why the discrepancy?

3. Are you as disgusted with the daily butchery being carried out by your fellow Muslims in Syria as you are at Israel's rather limited military actions these past two weeks? If not, why not?


Out of all the 'rockets' fired by Palestinians. Only 26 Israelis have been killed. EVER.


4. Yet thousands of rockets and mortar shells have been fired into Israel, many (but not all) without provocation. Is such attempted killing of Israeli civilians -- men, women, and children -- any less reprehensible because it happens to be less effective? I don't think so, and there certainly isn't a government in the world that will give an attacker a break because that attacker is only mediocre at terrorism.


Anytime the US or israel don't like someone despite them being elected, they want to undermine, demonize, kill, maim, etc... until the people are presured to give up or forced to accept a puppet imposed by US or Israel.


5. I know, it's almost as if states act first and foremost to promote their own interests in the international sphere, including influencing the form and composition of other governments. Weird shit, brah!


Now that Palestine has been upgraded in the UN, the next step is the ICC. International criminal court. Then Israel will be put in it's place and be judged for the war criminal that it is.


6. This isn't a realistic scenario at all. It simply isn't going to happen, whatever your and my opinion of the Israel-Palestine Conflict. You seem susceptible to swapping in your fantasies for accurate descriptions of the world and all that occurs within it, and this is just another example of that tendency.

It's unfortunate, but understandable all the same. The fact is, engaging in a legitimate discussion with someone -- identifying their main points, figuring out their reasoning, and formulating a response -- is a cognitively intense activity. Not too many people are on here other than for low-grade dopamine surges, i.e., a bit of entertainment. They certainly don't want a mental workout. So, better to avoid all that difficult "thinking" stuff and instead post videos and emotional diatribes rather than actual arguments that are susceptible to criticism.

2. The Jordanian military has killed more Palestinians than Israel, yet you don't seem to rail against that organization and/or the government that utilizes it at all. If your primary concern is pointing out crimes against Palestinians, why the discrepancy?

What does this have to do with anything? The discussion is about Israel/Palestine. And at present Israel is the only nation occupying Palestine, no other nation lays claim to any Palestinian land.

3. Are you as disgusted with the daily butchery being carried out by your fellow Muslims in Syria as you are at Israel's rather limited military actions these past two weeks? If not, why not?

I would imagine most people would be disgusted by innocent people dying anywhere, but again what does this have to do with what Israel is doing in Palestine?

I've noticed it's a common tactic for Israel supporters to try and bring up how badly Palestinians have been treated by others or other conflicts as if this is somehow justification for Israel's current subjugation of Palestine



4. Yet thousands of rockets and mortar shells have been fired into Israel, many (but not all) without provocation. Is such attempted killing of Israeli civilians -- men, women, and children -- any less reprehensible because it happens to be less effective? I don't think so, and there certainly isn't a government in the world that will give an attacker a break because that attacker is only mediocre at terrorism.

Without provocation? Well there is the small matter of the 500,000 million Israeli civilians that Israel has transferred outside of it's internationally recognised borders into the occupied regions and the small matter of the people that have been run out of their homes to accommodate this.

Oh and there isn't a government in the world that recognises Israel's right to build settlements in any part of the occupied territories.

And then there is the horrendous living conditions and daily violations of human rights that Israel forces the Palestinians to endure, that has attracted countless UN condemnations.
No provocation? Really?



5. I know, it's almost as if states act first and foremost to promote their own interests in the international sphere, including influencing the form and composition of other governments. Weird shit, brah!

6. This isn't a realistic scenario at all. It simply isn't going to happen, whatever your and my opinion of the Israel-Palestine Conflict. You seem susceptible to swapping in your fantasies for accurate descriptions of the world and all that occurs within it, and this is just another example of that tendency.

7. If you ever go there (I recommend Jaffa in Tel Aviv), you will see Arab and Jew live side-by-side amicably. I understand that it is cheaper to rely on overly emotional propaganda from the internet that confirms your preconceived notions, but I think you might be smart enough (though I wouldn't bet on it) to realize that this is no substitute for genuine data and on-the-ground experience.

That is good that you have witnessed Arabs and Jews living together in peace, shows it is possible. I don't think anyone(well definitely not neutrals anyway) has a problem with Jews per se. it is simply the actions of the Israeli government that most right minded people find abhorrent, and I think there is a growing number of Israeli Jews that are also appalled at what it is being done in their name in Palestine.

Israel does not have to be a state party of the ICC for Israeli individuals to be investigated/pursued by the court, anything occurring on a state party's territory falls under ICC jurisdiction.

So if the UN upgrade enables Palestine to become an ICC state party this would allow them to refer to the court any Israeli individuals responsible for the crimes committed in the occupied territories.

"The ICC, as it’s known, is on record as inclined to regard Israel’s more than 100 residential settlements on the West Bank as a crime of war. (The Jewish state pulled its settlers and soldiers out of Gaza in 2005 and argues that it no longer qualifies as its “occupier” under international law. Critics argue otherwise.) The physical presence of the settlements in other words would give Palestine a ready-made case to drag Israel before the court — or to threaten dragging it before the court"

Of course even if the ICC did investigate and indict Israeli individuals for their pretty much indisputable crimes, there's no way Israel would hand over those individuals and they would be supported by the US.

But it would go a step further to helping people in the west wake up the fact that Israel is guilty of war crimes for what it is doing in Palestine and the state of Israel would be seen to be harbouring war criminals.

Even if something occurs on the territory of a state that's party to the treaty, the Court cannot compel another non-party State to attend proceedings. You could argue that the Court would try such cases in absentia, but even that wouldn't help. After all, what exactly can the ICC do to Israel? Nothing. The ICC has no enforcement mechanism. At best it can give Israel a stern talking to; one that Israel will completely ignore.

Even if everything above is true and even if Israel is guilty of such war crimes any ICC proceedings would hardly wake anyone up. People are inclined to believe what they believe, and even an utterly perfect decision from the ICC that was completely rational and substantiated wouldn't do much to change people's opinions.

To be clear, I don't think that Israel is pure and untainted. War is a messy, bloody business - not clean or neat. And they could have certainly dealt with the whole situation differently. But, frankly, from where I stand that applies to both sides.

The ICC can only go after individuals not states, so Israel(the state) would not be asked to attend any hearing. But as I explained in previous post, if the court believes a crime has been committed on a party state territory it will issue arrest warrants for the individuals deemed responsible for that crime, regardless of if those individuals are nationals of an non party state.

As I said I can so no way that Israel would turn over any such fugitives, but it really would not do Israel's world image much good to have what would be leading figures of past and present Israeli governments indicted as war criminals by the International Criminal Court.

I don't agree with this. I think the majority of people in the west really have little idea of what is really going in Palestine and something like Israel being investigated for war crimes and arrest warrants being issued would really be an eye opener for many.

Blabla

Obama and Henry Kissinger won the peace prize. It's meaningless shit. The nobel prizes are meaningless, they are indeed very politicized. In Iran there were a few scientific break throughs in the last 2-3 years. They are a really progressive nation. Some examples in stem cell research, some examples in nano technology, etc... firsts, yet they did not get any prize of any kind.

These prizes over all are meaningless especially when they are controlled by a certain group of people. Henry Kissinger a peace prize? OBAMA a peace prize before he did SHIT, he started FIVE MORE wars and wants to start MORE wars... peace prize LMAO...

And in North Korea they "discovered" the lair of unicorns (conveniently labeled as "Lair of Unicorns") per http://news.yahoo.com/real-story-north-koreas-unicorn-lair-235304830.html. Can we see references to these scientific breakthroughs? Have any papers on them been published in peer-reviewed journals?

Even if these are real breakthroughs, it will take a while: even Einstein didn't get his Nobel prize until more than 15 years had passed. He published his paper on the photoelectric effect in 1905 (along with 3 other seminal papers that reshaped physics) and didn't get awarded a Nobel prize until 1921.

Any breakthroughs by Iranians are unlikely to compare to Einstein's work. And if Einstein had to wait 16 years, surely they can wait a little longer than a mere 3...

yeah, probably very true.

I think it's definitely true.


Convention (IV) relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War. Geneva, 12 August 1949.
ARTICLE 49

Individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory to the territory of the Occupying Power or to that of any other country, occupied or not, are prohibited, regardless of their motive.

The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.

So as Israeli settlements obviously equate to the transfer of the occupying Power's civilian population into occupied territories , according to the Geneva Conventions those settlements represent a war crime.

But how many people in the west are aware of that? Mainstream media never mentions Israel's breaches of the Geneva Conventions or the 60 odd UN resolutions condemning it's actions...

Most poeple don't bother looking under the surface and just take what they are told by the media at face value.

Of course there was, Palestine existed for thousands of years and for over a 1000 years under Muslim rule where Muslims, Jews and Christians peacefully co-existed (except when christian crusades came and except when zionist jews came)
