Nickhere BS: Israel Moves in. (1634* d) RE: BS: Israel Moves in. 20 Jan 09

BBruce - I'm not sure who your last post is addressed to, but as it contains references to 'peace plan' 'viable' and "Jerusalem' I'm assuming cautiously that it's at least partly addressed to me.

1) Something special could be worked out for Jerusalem - maybe a bit like Berlin in times gone by. Afterall three major religions all claim it with some justification as their own, so it'd be reasonabel for them to share it. The devil must really enjoy the irony of the City of God being the scene of so much conflict and suffering. Afterall it is just a few square km of land, even if it has powerful emotional attraction for above mentioned groups.

2) "If Israel wanted to.... 1 million...etc.," Even Hitler didn't kill all the Jews - there were still several million of them left after WW2. I still hold that what Hitler presided over was a genocide. You seem to overlook that the Final Solution was the last phase of a long period of attrition that began with making life as uncomfortable as possible for Jews until they felt compelled to leave (along with communists and other dissidents). Once the Nazis felt comfortable enough that they could get away with that, they kept pushing the boundaries until it ended in diabolical and wholesale slaughter. That's the way these things usually work. I don't see any big difference these days, apart from cases where 'civilization' has already broken down and we skip straight to the slaughter without any 'legal niceties' entres.

3) perhaps you missed my post on Russia / Ossetia, I did protest about that, for all the good it did. No Jews involved in either side of that dispute as far as I know.

4) I'd appreciate it if you stopped trying to insinuate that I, or anyone else who disagrees with your take on this, does so out of a basis of anti-semitism / racism. In any case you would also be implying that by rooting for the Israeli cause you are a racist and the object of your racist hate are Arabs, palestinians in particular. I take it for granted that you are not some kind of paranoid racist but someone who wants to see a peaceful solution to what's going on. Likewise, it'd be nice if you stopped assuming all other voices are anti-semitic.
