Discussion in 'Israel and Palestine' started by Grampa Murked U, Nov 13, 2019.
Hitler was wrong.
A Grampa Murked U who supported genocide against Jews could say that Israel would not exist today to be fought over, making the world safer. Maybe he was right. Maybe we should always commit genocide against whatever group we blame for our personal greivances, as you suggested, gramps.
The Nazis had to dehumanize their victims too.
A tiny percentage? Really? Where do you get your statistics from? What is clear from the news is that only a small percent of Muslims oppose these hideous crimes. That said, I agree with you that genocide is unacceptable and was probably put forward more as an expression of frustration than a serious proposal.
This guy gets it
It's more likely you're relying on Fake News for your information about Palestine:
Israel-Palestine: The Missing Headlines
"The Missing Headlines from Israel-Palestine
Studies show that US news is extremely Israeli-centric. The main bureaus for CNN, AP, Time, etc. are located in Israel and are often staffed by Israelis. The son of the NY Times bureau chief is in the Israeli army; 'pundit' Jeffrey Goldberg served in the Israeli military; Wolf Blitzer worked for the Israel lobby, and numerous other journalists in the region have personal family ties to the Israeli military."
Jefferson was opposed to piracy.
Truman condoned it, and his support for Zionism has created far more enemies across the Muslim world for the US than Jefferson's actions ever did.
Israel–United States relations - Wikipedia
"This Government has been informed that a Jewish state has been proclaimed in Palestine, and recognition has been requested by the provisional Government thereof.
"The United States recognizes the provisional government as the de facto authority of the new State of Israel.
"(sgn.) Harry Truman
"May 14, 1948
"With this unexpected decision, US representative to the United Nations Warren Austin, whose team had been working on an alternative trusteeship proposal, shortly thereafter left his office at the UN and went home.
"Secretary of State Marshall sent a State Department official to the United Nations to prevent the entire United States delegation from resigning.
"De jure recognition came on 31 January 1949."
Hitler came to power because of massive sanctions put on Germany post WWI that caused many to become angry at the local government, blame the rest of the world and of course Jews. Like Holocaust denying George Phillipe.
One of the things that made Truman one of our greatest presidents.
