I do note that you ignore the rights of the Jewish refugees of 1948 from Arab lands. What about them? Do the rights of 640,000 Arab Muslims exceed the right of 820,000 Arab Jews?



77% of the "Jewish Homeland" was split off in 1924 or so to form the Kingdom of TransJordan, where Jews were not allowed to settle. This was by the Mandate Power ( GB) . The remainder was to be the new "Jewish Homeland"

Those were the LAST borders accepted by the Arab League. Shouldn't we go back to them?

The destruction of Israel as a viable state will cause far more suffering in the region as the Sunnis and Shiites fight each other, and wipe out any other groups ( Ba'hai, Christian, Druze, etc).


Syrian Muslims over the last year have killed far more Arab Muslims than Israel has over the last 66 years.

A must for Israeli atrocity apologists - I don't think.
From the Sunday Times Culture supplement:
"Every picture tells...
5 Broken Cameras (BBC4, 10.30pm)
In 2005, Emad Burnat, a Palestinian farmer living in the West Bank, bought a video camera to film his newborn fourth son. He also began filming his fellow villagers' demonstrations against the building of a barrier that cut them off from their land, which was given to Jewish settlers — protests that over five years would involve confrontations with Israeli troops, with activists killed or severely injured, and elicit support for their cause from politicians and foreign volunteers. By turns stirring and shocking, Burnat's remarkable video diary (co-directed by Guy Davidi) was nominated for the best documentary Oscar in 2012. John Dugdale and Helen Stewart"

"Russia is violating Human rights so Israel should be allowed to."

You obviously didn't read the same article or are lying again. This is what it said:

"Last week a big chunk of the world sat glued to their TVs following the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Not a single country, or any individual athletes, chose to boycott the event. Even though we all know, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the most atrocious human rights violations are taking place on a daily basis in that country.

So. While LGBT-activists were being abducted, raped and beaten in Russia, political activists around the world choose to focus their energy and resources on demonizing the one country in the Middle East where gay people can live freely, safely and openly?"

As is obvious to anyone with minimal comprehension he is pointing out that Israel, unlike Russia, is NOT violating human rights yet it is being vilified while other states that are, in fact egregiously violating human rights are ignored. But you knew that, didn't you?

Ignoring the situation in Israel, where even some of its own citizens have taken to describing it as an "Apartheid state" does not make your continuing unqualified claim anything other than a lie   
From - the 'Or report':
"Civil rights
Main article: Ethnic discrimination in IsraelDirected at Arabs
The Israeli Declaration of Independence stated that the State of Israel would ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex, and guaranteed freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture.
While formally equal according to Israeli law, a number of official sources acknowledge that Arab citizens of Israel experience discrimination in many aspects of life. Israeli High Court Justice (Ret.) Theodor Or wrote in The Report by the State Commission of Inquiry into the Events of October 2000:[182]
The Arab citizens of Israel live in a reality in which they experience discrimination as Arabs. This inequality has been documented in a large number of professional surveys and studies, has been confirmed in court judgments and government resolutions, and has also found expression in reports by the state comptroller and in other official documents. Although the Jewish majority's awareness of this discrimination is often quite low, it plays a central role in the sensibilities and attitudes of Arab citizens. This discrimination is widely accepted, both within the Arab sector and outside it, and by official assessments, as a chief cause of agitation."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arab_citizens_of_Israel

http://muse.jhu.edu/login?auth=0&type=summary&url=/journals/israel_studies/v011/11.2or.html

Published March 2011.
The definition of Israel as "the Jewish State" or "the State of the Jewish People" makes inequality a practical, political and ideological reality for Palestinian citizens of Israel.
The State of Israel, as an ethnocracy or "ethnic nationstate", is systematically failing to adopt effective measures to redress the gaps that exist between the Palestinian minority and the Jewish majority. By privileging Jewish citizens in many fields, the state actively preserves and even widens these gaps.

The inequality Report
"The Inequality Report details some of the main legal, political and policy structures that institutionalize and entrench discrimination against the Palestinian minority in Israel."
The Inequality Report

The last time I put up 'The Inequality Report' one of the 'usual suspects' braindead said there was too much to read; another said it couldn't be believed because "it was written by Arabs" - that is how "equal" these twots believe Arabs to be - they don't even believe their own lies.

Those olive-trees stuck in my craw as a peculiarly spiteful manifestation of an overall mistaken approach to the whole situation. I admit that they had a particularly symbolic significance to me; and I constantly refer to them as such, as an indicator of my complete withdrawal of any residual support or feeling of any sort of loyalty to Israel in its present avatar. I think they should be viewed as a sort of synecdoche for the unacceptability of Israel's activities.

But this in no way nullifies the undoubted fact that much expressed opposition to Israel is in fact a not particularly well-disguised form of antisemitism, as was recognised by the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia's 2005 working definition of antisemitism. In which context there are many who feel the terms of the vehement denunciations of the Carroll/Greg·F axis could be viewed as significantly suspect.

Rather than addressing supposed motives for criticism of Israel, why not try addressing the motives themselves - it would make a refreshing change?
"there are many who feel the terms of the vehement denunciations of the Carroll/Greg·F axis could be viewed as significantly suspect"
