    In the case of Israel, its defenders have conspired to fashion a public image---particularly in the west---that is nothing short of an antithesis of the ruthless character of the modern Jewish State. A telling example are the spate of richly contrived slogans that are so absurd and easily refuted that one can only marvel at the level of chutzpah.

    We are lectured about Israel's putative "right to exist"---which of course doesn't exist

    We are assured that the IDF is "the world's most moral army" in spite of volumes of evidence and documentation that suggests the opposite conclusion: they delight in terrorizing a civilian population without sufficient defenses, and they routinely kill children

    We are introduced to "purity of arms"...a rather brash invocation that proposes to exempt the Jews from the human rights crimes they routinely engage in...basically the thinking is ( "when we do it, it is not a crime" )

    My favorite one is "The land without people for the people without land"...apparently we are to dismiss the historical residency of the Native population of Palestine...dismiss Ottoman census and taxation records...land titles...British census figures---because the Jews who managed to steal the land in the mid-twentieth century want us to know that the place was a "barren desert"...."uninhabited"

    Why do you open up so many threads with the same arguement?

    none of the slogans cited by sundowner precedes the slitting of the throats of infants as does "ALLAHUAKBAAAR"

    in fact that "ALLAHUAKBAAR" is the favorite slogan of sluts with bombs on their malodorous asses

    Posting ottoman taxation records will be a boon.

    Redundancy is a necessity when confronting pathological liars...perhaps the simplest question might be: why are lies the essential tool for defenders of Israel?

    Those damn Zionists are the crux of this endless conflict. What kind of people make peace offerings to Palestinians, build a security fence & concede land to Palestinians to keep them captives in Israel when all they want is to be free from Israel?

    Unless & until Israel ends the occupation there will never be any peace between Israel & the Palestinians. The problem is where can the Palestinians go when not a single surrounding Arab countrey will grant the Palestinians a right of return back to their indigenous homelands?

    What do you see as lies? how do you describe liars? and to which lies do you refer to?

    btw, it still doesn't mean that you need to open up million threads with the exact same debate.

    You're not really very informed are you? If you don't like the threads simply don't hit on them...easy fix?

    Even with people I disagree with, I debate. Now, care to answer my first question?

    The question is remarkably foolish and unworthy of a response...if you are unaware of the routine lies that inform the Jewish arguments pertaining to Israel, I submit that you have no business participating in a discussion thread on the subject...
