    Default The Israeli occupation of Palestine

    Simple question: Do you think it is just?

    I personally believe that the Israelis are treating their muslim neighbours the same way Nazis treated the Jews and Poles. Israel is constructing homes for Israelis on Palestinian ground - Germany invaded Poland for Lebensraum. This is one of many similarities between Israel and Nazi Germany; between Zion and the Third Reich.

    I'm not sure what I find more unjust; the governing situation in Palestine or the use of the situation to espouse the 'Muslim Brotherhood' by the middle east national socialist regimes without any serious attempt by these governments to improve the situation and to dupe their citizens into believing Israel is the 'big bad wolf'.

    When it gets to the point when I can predict who started a thread without seeing the OP, members need to come up with a new schtick.

    In my opinion, the occupation is both unjust and foolish. If the Palestinians had food to eat, personal safety, jobs, and land that could not be arbitrarily stolen, then they and the Israelis could coexist peacefully. Take those things from people and they react, regardless of ethnicity or religion.

    I'll take that as a compliment. I only bring up subjects and issues that need to be discussed.

    Abrahamic religions should practice what they preach.

    Nazi goal was the deliberate extermination of the Jews. When Jews resisted being shipped to their certain deaths from the Warsaw Ghetto, the whole place was burned to the ground under personal orders from Hitler (i.e. every building was leveled, and all the survivors were shot on the spot or shipped to death camps)

    Now I'm not here to convince you that the Israeli government is all sunshine and smiles and I sure as shit wouldn't want to living in the West Bank or the Gaza Strip, but comparing an Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip as a retaliation for Hamas rocket attacks and their vow to destroy Israel, isn't exactly on the same scale as Nazis shoving civilians into a portable gas chamber and letting the disiel engine run until everyone dies of carbon monoxide poisoning.

    Again, let me reiterate, I don't think being a Palestenian is a picnic (with paranoid Israelis on one side and callous Arab neighbors who use them as pawns against Israel on the other) but comparing Gaza Strip/West Bank in 2011 with Wasaw Ghetto in 1943 is a bit of a stretch.

    A better comparison would that of England and Ireland in the 19th century. Even then, Palestinians aren't starving to death like the Irish did during the famine. But they are stuck in a shithole of a place, where the main way to make a living is either mooching of international aid, working as a day laborer, or involving yourself with militants/terrorists.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.
