    Well I didn't contradict myself in the post you quoted. But yet, A=+/-A - so contradictions are not necessarilly false, in fact they are proven to exist.

    The following post from INTPc adequately sums up my opinion:

    to this extent opposing Israel's crimes is not just about Israel but about the whole "war on terror" farce.
    Pakistan is...

    ...an old US ally, and a beneficiary of our aid/guns.
    ...armed with more nukes than Israel.
    ...twenty-four times larger than Israel in population.
    ...constantly picking fights with its nuclear-armed neighbor over land.
    ...critically involved in the Afghan war.
    ...a hotbed for Islamic terrorism.
    ...borders Iran.
    ...responsible for the 1971 Hindu genocide in what is now Bangladesh (1.25 million dead).

    Yet, Pakistan is virtually ignored by both the US media, and the world at large (outside of India)?

    A: India is not exactly an oppressed minority on its own land.
    B: We play both sides of that.

    I agree that there are much bigger issues that no one is focusing on.
    What is so irrational about it?..
    Jews bascially own The American media. and it's entertainment industry as well.
    Own the media.. own the politics. The connection is actually quite obvious.

    It's funny how people think it is possible for Jews to cooperate to such an extent when the entire culture is based on arguing.

    It's also funny how people forget to consider the non-Jewish zionists who keep sending money to Israel and trying to breed red heifers in the hopes that getting all the Jews back to Israel will cause the rapture. But, you know, it's always the Jews' fault.

    Yes, that's the worst aspect of it.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I hate raptures and apocalypses.

    Y'know, the side benefit (besides it just being the right to do) in making Israel more of a "normal", un-godlike, accountable nation, is that these "non-Jewish zionists" (ie eschatologically minded Christians) would direct their energy elsewhere. As it is, Israel is untouchable, and that further adds to their mythos for these people to go on pushing their agenda.

    It's an interesting question: Is it worse to give unfair preference in an ethnic/genocidal struggle (Israel-Palestine), or to completely ignore the struggle (Nigeria, Somalia, Zimbabwe, etc.)?

    Unfortunately, it depends on who is affected and what interests to protect. Ideally, all stable/more "civilized" nations would get their shit together and make things like the UN a more promising reality and act in all of these places at once.
