Israel vs. Palestine

Postby Caurobia » Sat Apr 14, 2012 8:22 pm

When it comes to the Israel vs. Palestine conflict which side do you support? I am pro-palestine because of Israel's constant human rights abuses of the Palestinian people and stealing their land and treating Palestinians living in Israel as second class citizens.

I foresee a thread just full of calm and rational debate with both sides presenting plenty of evidence in support of their position and nobody at any point making a Nazi reference.

I support both. The dualistic nature of the poll vexes me. The majority of people support neither Israel nor Palestine entirely, and, as such, selecting between them is like choosing whether to vote for Pol Pot or Idi Amin in a presidential election. Also, aren't there two different Zionist threads already running in General?

Truly? I am a Zionist, and am not convinced of the veracity of your assertion. I would say that Canada has Israel out-ranked as far as allies go.

Would you care to glance over your previous thread on the subject? I do believe it focused specifically on that claim, and that I provided a relatively thorough explanation of why I disagreed with it.

Palestinians are not Israeli citizens. Certainly, I can comprehend criticizing Israel's expansionist policies in the West Bank, but that is not the same thing.

Palestine abuses human rights. They persecute homosexuals and have armed forces creating anarchy.
Israel is just criticised by the UN far more often which has many influences including the make up and structure of the UN. I tend to support Israel because at least they have a functioning democracy that represents the will of their people unlike Palestine.

Unless of course you are a Palestinian living in Israel or their occupied territories.

The typical Palestinian, even one living in Gaza, has several family members who are still alive. This is quite unlike survivors of the Nazis.
Life is a tragedy to those who feel, a comedy to those who think, and a musical to those who sing.

I am the very model of a Nation States General,
I am a holy terror to apologists Confederal,
When called upon to source a line, I give citations textual,
And argue about Palestine, and marriage homosexual!
