    This just stirs up shit. Israel needs to prosecute those people who refuse to obey the law; especially, where it pertains to the Israel-Palestine issue.

    If they want to live in Palestine, let 'em. Revoke their citizenship and let them plead their cases to Hamas.

    the same thing happened in the settlements when Israel gave up the Sinai. They'll make a scene.... the IDF will come in and drag them out.

    Point is, any peace efforts on the part of Israel are being oversahdowed by crap such as this. Peace isn't a one-way street, and the idiots on both sides need to just cool their crap.

    At least Israel enforces its laws and kicks their butts...and rightfully so.

    Now, what is it Hamas does to terrorists?

    Unfortunately, BOTH stirs stuff up. Very sad, too.

    I think you know me well enough to know I'm by no means defending Hamas. It is just my opinion that these people are hurting any chance for peace with their ridiculous behavior.

    Israelis are kinda like conservatives ... anything the fringe-element whackos do is pointed to and presented as the norm by the other side. Why give the enemy ammunition?

    Wouldn't cross my mind to think you're defending Hamas. I was just pointing out that at least the force of govenment in Israel tries to keep things under control.

    But, of course you're correct that these things hurt any chance for peace.

    In terms of Israel, though, one has to wonder why the different standards required of its behavior.

    Not to try and stir anything up, but why the different standards required of Republicans'/conservatives/' behavior?

    You got me. Israel is repeatedly attacked and kicks everyone's asses and takes some strategically vital land, and THEY are the bad guys. Go figure.

    After repeated peace offerings ... returning land, allowing Arabs to move into what is supposed to be Palestine ... they're STILL attacked, and still villified by the media.

    It's cuz y'all "chews" are evil.:cool:

    I don't think there are different standards required of repubs/conservatives. I think there's too little acknowledgement by the right of how out of control the repubs were while they had the executive/legislative/judicial branches.

    And yep... we suck. Just as WJ, he'll tell ya. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    Out of control? You should try looking at it from the perspective of a conservative. Whatever YOU think they were out of control about, they were put in office by us to accomplish certain things. I don't see where they did squat except allow themselves to be intimidate by the minority party, and set up bureaucratic shop as usual.

    Then there's the fact that if I hold a different set of ideals than you, perhaps what YOU think I should acknowledge is nonexistent to me?

    On a serious note about Jews: Israel only exists at all because of Western antisemitism. Basically, Europe dumped it's problem on a worthless piece of land (that suddenly became valuable) rather than address it's own religious prejudices.

    Otherwise there would have been no need to establish a separate homeland for a religion.
