    Freedom of speech is not the issue nearly as much as it a "political opinion" being expressed on a muncipality owned and run property.

    And Irael being guilty of war crimes is more of a political opinion than it is fact.

    No it isn't. There is tangible proof. Look at a map of Israel when it was created and look at the same map today. We shouldn't send one red cent to Israel.

    Has a court in the United States found Israel guilty of war crimes?
    If not (and it hasnt), then it is not fact and nothing more than political opinion.

    Your tangible proof is proof perhaps of something you do not agree with, but not proof of a war crime.

    I seriously hope for your sake that you were just being lazy with this argument. Because if it's the extent of your capacity in intellectual matters, then you and your family are in serious trouble.

    I'm calling it.

    This thread ends up in the romper room, where all assinine threads go.

    You have to prove war crimes in court, someday. I have been hearing about these crimes for over 25 years, yet Israel has never lost, nor actually been charged (to my knowledge).

    It even says in the story that it was in retaliation of the rockett attacks and illegal smuggling.

    All they need is an equal number of busses proclaiming the Palestinian war crimes and then they'd prove their fairness but that ain't gonna happen in librulland is it?

    Israel has been taking land that doesn't belong to them for decades. The settlements are illegal, and that makes it a crime. And you are questioning MY intellect? That's rich...
