More Turmoil for Israel

#21
I love Israel.

I've never understood or condoned Ireland's almost implied allegiance to Palestine.

Ireland should be wary of their chosen friends, as their religion will always prevail.

For the terminally stupid and semi-literate! This thread is about Israel, not any other country (either past or present).

So where and when did you encounter "a form of South African-style apartheid policy" in Israel? Share with us - what form did it take?

I'm actually surprised that so many in the categories mentioned in the first sentence are so eager and willing to deploy "whataboutery" arguments when it suits them, but immediately denounce others who do. Fancy that, eh?:smile::smile::smile:

Ah, we seem to hit upon a sore point there.
How about you going to sleep for a very long time because you are just a boring little man.

Perhaps we can give the poor, boring, little man one more chance to demonstrate that he has at least one iota of integrity, by responding to my question, which he has failed to respond to four times over the past seven days?

After failing to secure back-to-back wins in Eurovision 2019, it looks like Israel will be facing another election after PM Netanyahu (he of the various corruption allegations) has failed to stitch together a viable coalition. Yet another example of the political turmoil that's been pounding western democracy since 2016.

'Israeli lawmakers voted to dissolve parliament on Thursday, paving the way for a new election after veteran Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to form a coalition government before a midnight deadline. Netanyahu preferred a new ballot, set for Sept. 17, to the alternative, under which Israeli President Reuven Rivlin could have asked another politician to try and form a ruling coalition. The election, Israel’s second this year after an April 9 poll in which Netanyahu claimed victory, means unprecedented upheaval even for a country used to political infighting.'

Also shows its the only working democracy in the ME. I do wish You hadn't started the thread though. You'll set the usual moon howlers off. (As evinced ) :rolleyes:

Do not hold your breath. He obviously hasn't found an answer on Google that he can twist round to his way of thinking. SOP for bugsy

Talking of which it's the annual gay pride march in Jerusalem today and in Tel Aviv next Friday.

What dates are the annual gay pride marches in Amman, Cairo, Beirut, Damascus and Riyadh Buggersy?

You've obvioulsy adopted the 'one in, all in' principle to thread participation.

So much for keeping the discussion to a sensible level in CA.:(

Why do you love Israel, have you spent time there?

So are you saying that countries exhibiting control over the natives are guilty of apartheid? If the answer is yes, please include the following:
USA - guilty of genocide against Native Americans
Canada - genocide against First Nations
Australia - treatment of Aborigines
New Zealand - treatment of Maoris
Britain - slave trade, treatment of colonials.
Ireland - treatment of Protestants
India - caste system
Spain - Basques
French - Algeria

The list could include virtually every African nation, countries in South America (treatment of Incas, Aztecs etc), it is endless, so stop harping on about your chosen little rant and look at the wider view.

To bring the thread back to the point: how the state of Israel treats the Palestinians.

C'mon then - what is your solution for this then? Serious question - so don't go for the obvious connotations, given the date. Surely the problem is one regarding recognition (or lack of) and intolerance by both parties. And how much does religion actually play in all this?

Easy to spout off about what is wrong - not so easy to fix.
