Thread Name: BS: BDS of Israel 'Gathering Weight.'
Subject: RE: BS: BDS of Israel 'Gathering Weight.'
"They were settled in the homeland of the Jewish people - where would you have had them settled?"
That argument is up for grabs. Who was there first? That has never been rationally solved.
Propaganda instead of facts. The UN didn't know they were about to kick out the people who were displaced otherwise they might have reconsidered.
The solution is for Israel to overthrow democratically Netanyahu and his party and replace it with a government that can share equal polity with the Palestinian population. In America,
there is a Christian majority regarding religious preference but our Constitution is secular and doesn't give Christianity any special office, but not many rational Christians think they will be displaced by any other religious or non-religious group. This is because the US is not a theocracy, at least not yet.
israel has to give up being the reactionary theocratic nation state and embrace a true democracy entailing diversity. Jews have been around a long time and have nothing to fear about becoming extinct. If Jews are in the minority, so what? In a true democratic state they won't be persecuted, witness America where they are in a minority and thrive.
