    Let me splain here. I have NO FAVORITE in this game. I sat down about 15 years ago and looked at a map and read some of the history and decided enough is enough. I had no idea how tiny an area it was. Perhaps it shouldn't matter but it did, this tiny sliver of land smaller than Jersey, in constant chaos for about 50 years, has cost blood, treasure, time, diplomatic skill sets of MANY and more treasure and tied American political factions up in knots. Enough!

    They better damn well figure out how the hell to coexist and we need to offer our help WHEN THEY GOT SERIOUS and not before. Today we took a permanent unalterable side.

    Oh yeah, and letting, enabling or ignoring proxy regional interests play ping pong sure as hell didn't help do it? Invading IRAQ, empowering Iran sure was a smart move, huh?

    Is Israel the only nation in the world that is not sovereign? I mean, can everyone else dictate to them what their Capitol is or isn't?

Have you any idea how many Palestinian children alone have been shot and killed by the IDF? At least 2,167 Palestinian children have been killed since 2000.

    Be careful as to what sort of regimes you (and your nation) support - every death is a human tragedy, but the life of one Israeli civilian is not more important than the lives of 83 Palestinian children (that is the ratio involved).



    The recent Amnesty International Report on the state of human rights in 159 countries and territories during 2017 claims Israel is “killing” and “torturing” Palestinian children with impunity.

    Its critique of Israel is more extensive and critical than those of known bastions of human rights violations, including Syria, Iraq, and Yemen.The recent Amnesty International Report on the state of human rights in 159 countries and territories during 2017 claims Israel is “killing” and “torturing” Palestinian children with impunity.

    Not a peep from world leaders. Not a whisper. Not a blink.

    Some B level UN committee makes some meaningless objection - and the world doesn’t give a shit.

    Speaking of Palestinian children:

    The "news" this morning reports that among the deaths yesterday, there was one 8 month old child.

    Who takes an 8 month old to a deadly protest?

    And why? What would be the point?

    Probably killed it themselves so they could get a news blip, I am absolutely positive that the IDF has never, ever killed a Palestinian child, aren't you?


    What are these Palestinians thinking, why don't they just kill themselves and get it over with.

    I'm guessing that this dead kids mom and dad won't be winning any awards for parenting...

    "What to do today? Well, there's a deadly protest over at the fence. Great, let's take the kids!"

    Do you think those bullets magically stop right past the fence? The infant could have been half a mile away and hit by a stray bullet, that shit happens all the time right here in the good old US of A.

    The subject of this thread is the deadly protests at the Israeli border.

    Nothing to do with a "Drunken OK man".

    Well? DO you think that bullets magically stop after clearing the area where active adult protestors or do you not? The question was clear enough. Why the obvious deflection?
