"A united Israel/Palestine shared by both peoples was anticipated,"

False statement.

FACT: The 1923 formation of TransJordan out of 77+% of the Mandate Palestine SPECIFICALLY prohibited Jew from owning land, or settling in that portion of the Mandate.

I disagree with your statements- they are your opinion, and not all statements of fact.

The launching of antipersonnel rockets at civilian areas BY THE PALESTINIANS is an acknowledged war crime.


If territory taken in war is illegal, then the West Bank, taken from Mandate Palestine territory by the Arab League IN WAR in 1948 is the legal property of the successor state to Mandate Palestine, Israel. The FACT that it was rendered "JEW Free" by the Arab occupiers after 1948 seems to have been ignored.


Arab Muslims have greater rights in Israel than Jews OR Christians have in ANY Arab nation.


Yet you seem to focus only on Israel- it looks like you have a little bias, which I can only attribute to religious bigotry, since all peoples in that region are racially related.

Well, Jimmy,

When you hold ALL parties responsible for their actions, an not just Israel, you might be able to put forward your arguments as to the validity of those accusations. Until then, you show a bias.






Why do you give 640,000 Arab Muslim refugees greater rights than you do 820,000 Arab Jews?


Why do you insist on borders determined by MILITARY action in 1948, and deny those determined by military action in 1967?


Why do you demand that Israel abide by rules you do not apply to ANY other nation?

"When you hold ALL parties responsible for their actions,"
I do Brucie (don't mind Jimmy, though I prefer it with a Y) - I have no brief for any politician and condemn out offhand all atrocities carried out in the name of religion.
You, on the other hand, defend atrocities by Israel, while not only blaming all Palestinians for what their leaders do, but telling those same people they have no right to be where they are.
I would like to see peace in the Middle East - you on the other hand say there can be no peace until all Arabs succumb to to all Israeli demands.
I support the present (floundering) peace talks - you on the other hand give your wholehearted support to every Israeli abuse that has led those talks to the point of destruction.
I blame the Israeli regime - you blame the Palestinian people.
I identify the war criminals as the Israeli regime - you identify them as being "Jews" - making Sabra/Shatila and the like "Jewish" crimes.
I don't give any people rights over any other - I object to the continuing occupation of land that has been taken by force and can only settled peaceably by negotiation.
I have no reason to invalidate my accusations - they have been validadted by the United Nations and quashed by the United States veto.
Validation for those crimes is long established and has been acknowledged by Israelis and non-Israelis alike including members of the Israeli Security forces - I ask again Anti-Semites?
Now answer my pints and don't you dare start demanding answers before you do so.

Doesn't matter anyway - it's all a matter of record, around 800 civilians and prisoners of war were massacres by Israeli troops before Israel even got started.

Both
Incursions into Palestine, slaughter of refugees, deleiberately causing the deaths of nomadic tribes by depriving them of the essentials of existence (not to mention the use of chemicals on their homes), indiscriminate use of heavy artillery on civilian ares, continuing depriving of Palestinians of food, medicine, equipment essential to livelihood and day-to-day living..... not to mention actions that have slowed down peace negations to a virtual halt - all of these Israel has been condemned for and in each case, the United States have blocked them being brought to justice for - thousands of lives - nothing invented unless the civilised world has invented them.
Even its own ex-security service head have fessed up to these having taken place - are they 'anti-Semites' d'you think.
Shitbag ethnic cleansers like anti Semites like you and Brucie defend them, but neither of you fall into the catergory of 'civilised'.
I'm glad we agree that Israelis slaughtered non-combatants to occupy Palestinian lands though - but there again, how can you deny history - whoops - forgot who I was addressing fotr a moment, that's what you do. isn't it?

The 1923 partition, as I remarked Bruce, envisaged that the area not separated as Transjordan, that is to say, west of the Jordan, while allowing European Settlements by Jewish immigrants would also continue to be occupied by the existing Muslim and Christian inhabitants, resulting in a shared Palestine/Israel, call it whatever the inhabitants wished to call it.

If it were possible to return to that, as You appear to suggest Bruce, that could well be the best thing. However there would be a lot of opposition to that especially from those who would oppose a state which was not defined in a sectarian way and dominated by a particular ethnic group.

Conscientious objection to military service in Israel:
an unrecognised human right
Report for the Human Rights Committee in relation to Article 18 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights

The procedures governing the hearing and deciding of cases of conscientious objectors are unfair and unknown (to the public).

(A violation of human rights.)

The imprisonment of (male) conscientious objectors is a violation of the human rights to conscientious objection, derived from art 18 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

(Some democracy.)

The legislation on exemption of religious women is based on Jewish tradition, which does not permit daughters either to stray from their father's authority or to live in a mixed-gender society. Military service by women would conflict with both these proscriptions, hence with the traditional religious way of life[17].

(Israel is a sexist theocracy.)

        •        At present the ongoing attempt to force conscientious objectors into betraying or changing their convictions by means of escalating the tactic of repeated imprisonment is of major concern. This is in breach of article 14, paragraph 7, of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and contrary to Commission on Human Rights resolution 2002/45.

(Imprisonment of this kind is a tactic of a totalitarian regime.)



Jewish male scholars studying in a yeshiva (religious school) are granted exemption or automatic deferral until they are past military service age. There is an arrangement whereby they can study while in the armed forces. Druze male religious scholars too are exempt[10].

(Orthodox Judaism runs Israel.)

From Tuesday's Irish Times

BESIEGED BEDOUIN CAMP A MICROCOSM OF ISRAELI OCCUPATION AND SETTLEMENT POLICY

RAY MURPHY LETTER FROM RAMALLAH, IRISH TIMES, TUESDAY 19TH MARCH.
PALESTINIAN FARMERS' ACCESS TO LAND CURBED AS JEWISH SETTLEMENTS EXPAND.
Sulaiman is a 75-year-old sheikh, or camp elder, in a Bedouin camp in the south Hebron hills over an hour's drive from Ramallah in the so-called West Bank of Palestine.
This is an area referred to by John Kerry as having potential to be part of a future land swap, a reference to the Palestinian Authority and Israel agreeing to exchange land to accommo¬date illegal settlements as part of a peace agreement.
On a field trip there to observe the impact of Israeli settlement policy I found myself in a nearby Bedouin camp after our car broke down. Palestinians told me the Bedouin chose this way of life, but I was not convinced.
These Bedouin came here after fleeing their land around Beersheba soon after the state of Israel was founded in 1948. Unlike most Bedouin, they paid for the land with camels and have been there since. The Bedouin seemed to cling to the hillside, and their camp even had a woman living in a cave. In the 1980s settlers moved in alongside the camp and the settlement has expanded continuously since then.
Here is a microcosm of the implications of the Israeli occupation and settlement policy. Sulaiman is passionate and animated when outlining the daily obstacles to living in a specially designated zone by the Israeli military. We want to live in peace and buried the guns with Arafat, he says.
He asks if the British govern¬ment will give them a home in England, as historically it is responsible for the predica¬ment of the Palestinians.
Poor accommodation
The camp comprises a few temporary structures and poor quality accommodation, including what looks like a large shed, funded by Irish Aid. There were also solar panels supported by Irish Aid that provide electricity to the camp.
These people own a few miserable-looking sheep and goats, and the shelters they live in. Yet they are under constant pressure to move. Despite the obstacles, they are determined to remain and preserve their way of life. This is a lifestyle choice for these formerly nomadic people.
As this is an Israeli military restricted zone, anything built without permission will be demolished or removed. This even includes outside toilet facilities and children's playground equipment provided by international aid organisations.
A specially built toilet for the disabled nephew of Sulaiman was removed in the middle of the night.
Braindamaged
His nephew was brain dam¬aged during a confrontation with Israeli security forces about four years ago when he tried to stop them demolishing the traditional clay cooker used by the Bedouin for baking, called a Tamboun. This is an enclosed cooker fuelled by dried animal waste that is usually kept lit all day.
One of the settler families has sued Sulaiman in the Israeli civil courts seeking substantial damages for the nuisance created by the smoke from the camp Tamboun. The court document served on Sulaiman is in Hebrew.
Israeli activists who regular¬ly come to the camp to monitor the situation and lend support have helped with translation and advice. They too are often attacked by the settlers. .
Violence against Palestini¬ans from Israeli settlers is an increasing problem in the West Bank. On a previous visit to the city of Nablus and its hinter¬land, I experienced this first hand.
Israeli authorities are threatening to relocate thou¬sands of Bedouin. The Israeli defence ministry is in the process of legalising another illegal outpost in the area to create a chain of settlements.
Haartez, the Israeli daily newspaper, reported that the gradual expansion of the residential and agricultural areas of Jewish settlements has been accompanied by well-doc¬umented efforts by settlers to block access by Palestinian farmers and shepherds to more and more of their land.
I thank Sulaiman for sharing his experience and his hospitali¬ty and promise to return.
Not forgotten
He described himself as a simple illiterate Bedouin and thanked us for our concern. He demonstrates you don't need a formal education to be articu¬late and compelling in arguing a case.
He said it helped to know that they are not forgotten and it gave him strength to endure.
Back on the road hitching a lift to the nearest village to catch a bus to Ramallah, Sulaiman's predicament and spirit remind me why I had come to Palestine in the first place.
Meanwhile the peace negotiations continue and no one I meet, Israeli or Palestini¬an, is optimistic.
Prof Ray Murphy of the Irish Centre for Human Rights, NUI Galway, is a visiting scholar with Al-Haq, a Palestinian Human Rights Organisation.

The dictator Netanyahu still maintains his iron heel over rational thinking Israelis, who,
realizing that their country is in peril from their government, speak out at the injustices inflicted on the Palestinian people, while Bibi spouts lies about the BDS and attempts to arm twist the public in accordance with the toady followers in AIPAC.

The only solution for Palestinians is to adopt a politically defiant non-violent campaign against Israel including the boycott of West Bank Settlement industrial products such as Soda Stream and Sabra condiments.

Committed nonviolence has the potential to change those kind of things and has far more chance of winning a future worth living than the kind of violent resistance that the authorities know how to deal with. There is a kind of collusion between the advocates of violence on both sides, they serve to justify each other.

But committed nonviolence is very hard indeed, when it is faced by those determined to break it brutally. It involves people having their lives damaged, and it involves dying.

Recently I saw the film 5 Broken Cameras, which brings that very much home. It tells the story of a nonviolent struggle carried on over years by a palestinian village facing the encroaching wall and an illegal settlement. It is particularly heart breaking, because you get to know the people, and those killed are people you have grown to respect and admire, and wonder at their courage.   Here is a link to the film on Youtube.

He said he was even more shocked by the camp's residents, who flooded towards aid distribution points. "It's like the appearance of ghosts. These are people who have not been out of there, that have been trapped in there not only without food, medicines, clean water – all the basics – but also probably completely subjected to fear because there was fierce fighting … They can hardly speak.

No we haven't - your trolling has made sure of that
You have been given statement after sytatment by eye-witnesses, by reporters, by nurses on site, by soldiers who witnessed the massacre - there was even a film made based on an Israeli soldiers breakdown following having observed the massacre
Your single response has been - Israeli said they didn't do it
Israel's role in the massacre is a done deal - part of history.
They facilitated the massacre, they provided the transport for the trrops, they gave them access to the site, they stood by, both in the camp and outside, in watchtowers, and watched the slaughter take place for three days - they even provided illumination so the killing could carry on through the hours of darkness.
When the massacre was over they once again provided that transport for the killers to make their getaway.
When the killing was over the Israeli troops assisted in burying the evidence in mass graves and later they built a sports stadium over it to hide the evidence.
Now matter how many statements of shock-horror statements and Israeli denials you produce, those are the recorded facts of the Sabra Shatila - long accepted   
You have now adopted a technique of trolling on these subjects, repeating your denials over and over again until they are driven into the ground.
Shatila as one of the great human rights atrocities of history - Israel facilitated in it and made it happen, it wouldn't have been possible without their full co-operation.
How about responding to the Bedouin ethnic cleansing - I suppose that is a lie as well!!!

Britain has sold chemical weapons to no-one and does not even have any.

It is not just Britain who is on warm and friendly terms with Israel.
Virtually all liberal democracies are, and they would not be with a country that was really guilty of war crimes or crimes against humanity or any massacres at all.

It is all bollocks Jim.

"And why do you never express views about the other Arab on Arab massacres at those same refugee camps, and other such camps like the terrible scenes we saw a few weeks ago at Palestinian camps in Syria?"

I deplore ANY massacre, whoever commits the crime and whoever is the victim.

But my post was in direct response to your dismissive comment on one particular massacre.

Unlike you, I don't seek to excuse the actions of one side by repeatedly using the primary school playground "Tommy did it too Miss!" defence.

1. The IDF had the camps surrounded.
2. They admitted the Phalangists, knowing the hatred that group has for the inmates.
3. At best, they stood by and let the slaughter of hundreds of men, women and children continue.

"Israel denies it" is not a credible defence.

In case you missed the allusion to Ms Rice Davies, she famously said "They would say that, wouldn't they"!

It is a huge relief that you are not a judge, as the thought of a serial killer being released because others killed more, is simply appalling.

BTW, the Sabra/Shatila affair is a very recent instance of genuine Christian persecution of another religion.

Horses mouth trade figures for Israel
Israel offers a wide range of opportunities for UK businesses – many UK companies are already exporting successfully and in 2012 two way trade reached a record high of over £3.85 billion of goods and a further £2 billion of services. For the first four months of 2013, UK companies exported £482 million of goods. Israel is an open and highly competitive market, with opportunities in most sectors, especially for small and medium-sized business. UK goods and services are generally held in high regard, but must be of high quality and competitively priced.

Sure, but the only one ever posted about here is the one where you can frame Israel.

Is 30+ years "recent" really?

The massacre was carried out by Arabs, not Jews.
The Israelis stopped it.

Israel is a tiny country with correspondingly tiny trade, and no oil or gas.
No country would cosy up to a criminal state for access to orange juice.

Israel has been found guilty by a United Nations enquiry into the massacre
The world and its mother has condemned Israel for the massacre
Thare has never been any question of Israel's part in the massace
Even Israel's own enquiry (hardlt impartial) was forced to admit partial guilt
Now Mudcat has become an 'Anti-Semitic plot'
Can we assume you are only a member of this forum to lead us all onto the path of righteousness?

"The Israelis stopped it."

SURE they did,............after watching it happen for THREE DAYS!

Concerning other massacres, I responded directly to a post from YOU, so they are irrelevant to that exchange. So I will take a leaf from your book.

Start a thread on any other subject you like, and I will express my opinions there!

You have suggested that to others in the past. How do like having your own evasive techniques used against you?

Globalresearch.ca (also under the domain name globalresearch.org) may best be described as a left-wing equivalent to WingNutDaily.

The website describes itself as an "independent research and media organization." Globalresearch.ca takes pride in being a reliable "alternative news" source serving as a major repository of a broad range of "news articles, in-depth reports and analysis on issues which are barely covered by the mainstream media" (such as the New World Order). Its politico-economic stance is strongly anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist, anti-militarist, "internationalist but anti-globalization." Its view of science, the economy and geopolitics seems to be broadly conspiracist.

While many of Globalresearch.ca's articles discuss legitimate humanitarian or environmental concerns, the site has a strong undercurrent of reality warping and bullshit throughout its pages, especially in relation to taking its news from "Russia Today", along with other unreliable and/or open sources.

Despite presenting itself as a source of scholarly analysis, Globalresearch.ca mostly consists of polemics many of which accept (and use) conspiracy theories, pseudoscience and propaganda. The prevalent conspiracist strand relates to global power-elites (primarily governments and corporations) and their New World Order. Specific featured conspiracy theories include those addressing 9/11, vaccines, genetic modification, Zionism, HAARP, global warming, and David Kelly. Analyses of these issues tend follow the lines of the site's political biases.

Apparently, contributors to Globalresearch.ca consider information sourced from anyone who seems aligned to their ideology as reliable; during the 2011 Libyan civil war the site was an apologist for Muammar al-Gaddafi, reproducing his propaganda and painting him as a paragon of a modern leader. It's no surprise then that the site has long become a magnet for radicals, fringe figures and crank elements from the left in general. And ironically, it has more in common with its writers' enemies and wingnut rivals than they would ever admit.

"Not true."
The Redmond Enquiry found Israel guilty either "directly or indirectly" of the Sabra/Shatila massacre - guilty as that
"I started one about the abuses in Syria."
And proposed that Assad should be armed with riot control equipment
"Globalresearch.ca (also under the domain name globalresearch.org) may best be described as a left-wing equivalent to WingNutDaily."
Only by nutters who present pages of from openly fascist sites such as 'Muslim' Watch', Racist Sites like 'White Supremecy' and Zionist sites like 'Gatestone'..... not forgetting his supporter who back some of those claims vehemently - without exception nor qualification - thousand of Islamophobic claims - and is now defending Israeli massacres of civilians - why not!!!

Not for the massacres - just that they stood by and did nothing - a war crime in itself.
Booboo put an objection to one of the links I put up - the other three stand then?
