Nickhere BS: Taleban Blow Up Schools (145* d) RE: BS: Taleban Blow Up Schools 07 Feb 09

Pdq - Drop dead? You sound like a very angry man. Sorry, but I won't be obliging you on that one. Racial stereotyping? How, exactly? Are the Taliban a race? When we - you and I both - criticized the brutality of the IDF did we accept it when people not a million miles away accused of us racial stereotyping (ie. anti-semitism, in that case)? Not a bit of it. Though the IDF is Jewish in composition, only a racist fool would argue the actions of the IDF is representative of what all Jews think.

But that aside, I have a bone to pick with you, Teribus - though I agree with you that the Taliban have done a bad thing in blowing up the schools, there's a bit of dishonesty here as well. You asked at the start of the thread 'where are the cries of indignation now?' - we both know that this was a reference to those who criticized Israel for bombing schools on other threads.

Yet when people have pointed out here that the schools bombed by Israel had people inside - unlike those bombed by the Taliban - they were quickly told it wasn't relevant and there was another thread for criticizing Israel. But actually it was completely relevant, as your very first post makes clear.
