But Humirax . Can you see the parallels between Palestine and Ireland ?
Oh no, ofcourse not, I'm a unionist 'hun' after all.
No your not. And the content of this thread is too important to be co-opted so... sorry about that ... should have kept it to the other thread.
and so it continues
Shameful reportage from the New York Times
and another Israeli news item :

there is an awful lot of bullshit about Israel compared to its neighbours
World Report 2018: Rights Trends in Jordan executed 15 1300 detained without trial
World Report 2018: Rights Trends in Egypt Egypt 387 disappeared plus others liquidated in dubious circumstances
World Report 2018: Rights Trends in Lebanon only tortured 4 people to death
the rest are way worse.
So Israel is behaving slightly better than most of its neighbours Gazans aren't starving to death if they do arrest you your eventually get a trial and won't be raped to death and buried in an unmarked grave Iran.
Although slightly better than the Average middle eastern state is not exactly a high barrier to breach.
so less humane than the UK in Northern Ireland at the worse of the troubles
Hi. I believe you are free to post up Gaza inflicted atrocities ?
Actually can you expand on `bullshit` a little?
Micheal MacDonncha gets one over the Israeli authorities
Dublin lord mayor's name confounds Israel
You'd think a system that must be designed to recognise Hebrew and Arabic characters could handle the odd fada?
Probably more concerned about the odd intifada
simple compared to its neighbours Israel actually behaves better allows dissent and you can challenge its behaviour in court and you probably won't be murdered probably.
the IDF are bastards no doubt but they are more the parachute regiment in Northern Ireland on Bloody Sunday rather than the US at Mai lai or the Serbs
I'm not claiming they aren't bastards just Egypt: Life Sentence for 3-Year-Old compared to their neighbours they start looking better
yes ... well I know this. An associate was shot dead outside a mixed gender children's playgroup they were organising on the west bank by local extremists who disagreed with boys and girls playing together. The attention I believe should be on Israel because they are a dominant force with the full backing of America who have an aggressive border policy and nuclear weapons. You may be surprised to find that all the countries around it do not have aggressive border policies.
Mainly though it is not a battle... it is colonial occupation .
The right of refugees to return is the fulcrum of manufactured false allegations of anti-semitism (not that all or most allegations of anti-semitism are false or manufactured but it is still a thing). It works like this right of return=destruction of Israel=anti-semitism. Gunning down protesters throwing rocks at a fence (aka "clashes") is thus seen as Israel defending its right to exist. However there is a significant minority of Israeli Jews who are OK with the right of return. In this light these surveys are of interest (though of course caution should be exercised with all surveys).
Are Israeli Jews beginning to accept the right of return?
one of the unarmed poor sods was interviewed in the hospital said with his mates they were trying to get through the fence to seize Israeli weapons which was never going to end well.
The thing is its a valid tactic sending an unarmed young man to get shot hurt Israelis great get killed Israel looks bad. Not that excuses shooting someone who is the other side of a fence with live ammo or any ammo there's a fence between you and them
Then they do shit like this no mention of a right to return or compensation for all the Jews kicked out of Arab lands. They tried to destroy Israel at the start and failed and lost numerous wars trying to do the same.
so what you're saying is that until the palestinians do something about the right of return for jews to arab lands afayc the question's off the table
I think turning down let's kill all the jews rants might be a good start.
yeh cos those zionists are all really really nice people when you get to know past the bullets and drones and get to know them.
Black lives do not matter in Israel
Grow up Pickman's model .

Academic claims Israeli school textbooks contain bias
Book review: how Israeli school textbooks teach kids to hate
Special report: Israel failing to combat racism in schools
doesn't this seem to you, as it seems to me, to be the state promoting racism? while some people exposed to this will not believe it, i don't suppose it's in any way an accident that racism is taught in schools in the zionist entity.
Not joining in, shouldn't have come here, yes of course children are taught from earliest opportunity to hate so that they become good soldiers, it is fucked up in the extreme.I'm not defending that, but do you not see the irony in you having 10 mins ago apparently defended a nazi flag?
you love your little slurs don't you.
i didn't defend a nazi flag you numpty. go back, read it again, and then apologise.
where's the protest against this bimble Israeli town halts property sales after realizing most buyers were Palestinians
You carry on. I apologise for entering the thread.
