Oh dear dáithí perhaps you should read more, the "English" and later the "British" did exactly the same in Scotland and in Wales - Ireland was not singled out for special attention - as for the rest of it well that sort of behaviour was pretty much par for the course for all the nation states that acquired "Empires" during the course of the last 600 years. Prior to the Acts of Union coming into force to create what became known as the United Kingdom the other superpowers of Europe threatened the security of the British Isles by playing primarily the Scots and Irish for complete and utter fools and the daft beggars obliged them by falling for it every bloody time (Usual line was: "You rise up in rebellion and we will supply you with men, arms and money" - none of which ever materialised in any sort of quantity that would save the "rebels" let alone make any sort of success of the rebellion).

On the language thing however the British Missionary Society has been credited with saving rather a high number of languages from extinction by recording those languages in a written form for the first time and compiling their very first dictionaries.

"West Bank" GregF - that the part of the post-1923 mandated territory of Palestine specifically designated for settlement by Jew, Arab and Christian alike after 77% of the 1920 mandated territory had been given to the Arabs of Palestine specifically for their sole use and settlement, the country now known as Jordan?

"West Bank" GregF - that the part of the post-1923 mandated territory of Palestine that was taken from Palestine by force of arms, annexed and illegaly occupied by Jordan from 1948 until 1967?

As I said show me any map with the borders of Israel on it as recognised by the Palestinian Authority and the rest of the international community. The "Palestinians do claim to be "fighting" for a Two-State Solution aren't they? In which case they should be able to show the boundaries and recognised borders of those two states - or is that just a bit too logical for you?

Thanks Greg.
I am glad I did not put Bolivia on my list of Western liberal democracies.

The other link relates to Jewish terrorist groups' activities before Israel came into existence.

Here is the final paragraph,
"The other moral, however, is that Israel only exists because of the ability of Jews to defend themselves with force. The British could be driven out of Palestine because they had a home to go back to; but the Israelis have nowhere else to go, and so they can never give up fighting. If this is true, then the struggle which began in the 1920s is destined to go on until the Jews convince the Arabs that they are in Israel to stay. (This was the view Jabotinsky advanced in his famous essay "The Iron Wall," more than 90 years ago.) Whichever you believe, it's clear that the future of the Jewish state depends on the correct interpretation of the story Hoffman tells in Anonymous Soldiers."

Wazzup Greg? - didn't the first two work then? Or is it only Arabs that are allowed to have "Occupied Territories" (e.g: Egypt - Gaza from 1948 until 1967 & Jordan - West Bank from 1948 until 1967) And GregF not only did the Egyptians and Jordanians take that land by force and occupy it illegally for damn near twenty years - they even had the brass-neck to shut Arab Palestinians up in refugee camps on their own land. Where are the refugee camps for the 800,000 Jews who were forcibly deported from Arab countries and who fled to Israel - There are of course no such camps - the Israelis allowed all refugees the right to fully assimilate and integrate as Israeli citizens.

Last elections held in Israel were when Greg? How many different political parties were represented? How many Israeli Arab candidates stood?

Last elections held by either the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank or by Hamas in Gaza were when? How many different political parties were represented? How many Jewish, Christian or other non-Muslim candidates stood?

EU isn't a nation, prat. United Nations. The clue is in the name. Like I said, UN, including the nations of The EU support censure of Israel.

Keep denying it. Keep finding propoganda on web pages. Meanwhile, before writing this I checked the UN own's webpage for the data. It's amazing how figures are twisted eh?

What is it Keith? Support of military styled governments? Hatred of Muslims? If Palestine are them, Israel must therefore be us? Israelis look more western?

Why are you ruining whatever you see as your credibility to call reality a set of lies? What do I make up? I don't know much more than you to be honest and as most of it is second hand, it could be wrong, some of it. UN data could disguise something different. But get this. You don't know that any more than I do.

In the '30s we called it appeasement. I see the pattern now.

I am beginning to lose track of who is supporting what line here. Keith links to a list from UN Watch ("UN Watch is a non-governmental organization based in Geneva whose mandate is to monitor the performance of the United Nations by the yardstick of its own Charter. )

That has an introduction to the list that includes The council has criticized Israel on 27 separate occasions, in resolutions that grant effective impunity to Hamas, Hezbollah and their state sponsors. Obsessed with condemning Israel, the Council in its first year failed to condemn human rights violations occurring in any of the world's 191 other countries. In its second year, the Council finally criticized one other country when it deplored the situation in Burma, but only after it censored out initial language containing the word "condemn." It even praised Sudan for its "cooperation."

In most cases where EU countries did not support the resolutions they abstained. That suggests distaste for a particular bandwagon rather than lack of criticism of Isreal.

Well, I knew this thread would eventually get to "The Jews." Convenient targets of persecution since...forever! About that--

How do any of you think any other country would deal with being surrounded by countries who have not even acknowledged that she exists, much less broken bread with her? And how have other countries dealt with threats that are nowhere near to being threats to their very existence, as it is with Israel??

Israel teaches her children to learn and to work for peace. Palestine teaches its children, starting before they learn to speak, to "kill the Jews." (Really, have you seen Palestinian textbooks??) Israel shoots at military targets and mourns the collateral deaths of non-combatants. Palestine aims at civilians and cheers louder the higher the number.

Anyway, it is "Burma," also known as "Myanmar," not the other way around. If you're a patriot, that is. And also,we can never possibly "repair" all the wrongs humans have done to each other. We can only start now to put peace at the core of our beings and cascade it out among our families, friends, neighbors, and elected officials.

And anyway anyway, I'm about to buy--at least I have put in an obscenely low bid--a guitar that I absolutely don't need, to keep the other 4 (or is it 7??) company. But it is so pretty. And the price, if it doesn't get bid up, is impossible to pass up. Somebody please help me, for I can not help meself. Yeesh!

"hich is complete bollocks Musket."
The only bollocks here is your claim of Israeli support
Of the countries mentioned, the only one to give actual support is the United States - hardly a "decent" country as far as foreign policy is concerned.
That support is based on two factors - their plans for keeping their Middle East oil supplies secure are based on Israeli support.
The other is the fact that Israeli supporters in America are an extremely powerful and vocal force there and, should you cross them.
Canada has not supported Israel's war crimes, it has simply refused to denounce them
Apart from these, Israel has no support - even Obama choked on his bicci at the massacre that took place in Gaza.
You lied about Ireland supporting Isreal - Ireland has spoken out against the settlements and helped to formulate the motion condemning Israel in the U.N.
It remained neutral on Israel's being taken to the International War Crimes Court for the atrocities in Gaza, but due to pressure put by and influential Irisj Jewish minister, Leo Varadkar - even he hasn't been been able to muster support in the Dail.
Even if it were logical that war crimes aren't war crimes if "decent countries" don't spak out against them, your case is (once again) based on a tissue of lies and distortions.
no-one has supported the massacre of civilians in Gaza, no one openly supports Israel's expansionist policies, it flirting with apartheid, its ethnic cleansing of nomads, it's religion-based claims for the atrocities it is carrying out....
All the actions of a terrorist State, and the fact that they have nuclear arms (which they attempted to share with Apartheid South Africa) makes them the most dangerous terrorist state in the world

Truth and Reconciliation Commission urges Canada to confront 'cultural genocide' of residential schools


Testimony from thousands of residential school survivors leads to 94 recommendations


CBC News Posted: Jun 02, 2015 10:58 AM ET Last Updated: Jun 02, 2015 4:38 PM ET

Canada needs to move from "apology to action" if reconciliation with Aboriginal Peoples is to succeed, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission says in its landmark report, which includes 94 recommendations for change in policies, programs and the "way we talk to, and about, each other."

The summary of the final report, released today after years of hearings and testimony from thousands of residential school survivors and many others, makes many bold and potentially costly recommendations — not just to the different levels of government, but to schools, societies, churches and aboriginal governments.

The goal is to repair the relationship between aboriginal people and the rest of Canada.

The recommendations include the creation of a National Centre and Council for Truth and Reconciliation and the drafting of new and revised legislation for education, child welfare and aboriginal languages.

CBC News previously reported some of the recommendations — including the implementation of the UN Declaration on Indigenous Peoples — during an interview with Justice Murray Sinclair, the head of the commission, on The National on Monday night.

The commission was launched with a mandate to explore the history and legacy of the residential school system, and the process has faced hurdles — including the replacement of commission members and battles with the government over documents.

"However such protests do not always represent the views of the majority."
And majority views do not always indicate a decision reasonably taken - certainly while the establishments around the world control, and often own the means where information is passed on for us to take those decisions.
The fact is that whatever people might think on any subject, it is invariably a small minority who care enough or be in the position to express their views on them - this has always been the case.
It would be totally ridiculous to assume that those who do not demonstrate are happy with the way things are, yet this argument is often used by them in charge as a claim that this is the case.
Only 35,000 of us poured into Grosvenor Square in 1968 to protest what we watched nightly in Vietnam - was this an indication that the people of Britain supported the off-loading of napalm and Agent Orange onto the heads of the Vietnamese people that we viewed on our television screens night after night - don't think so really - and demonstrations such as these on a global scale eventually helped force an end to the war (should be remembered that General Westmorland proposed that Vietnam should be "nuked back into the Stone age", and there were those who were happy to go along with him.
Mass demonstrations are a pretty accurate indication that something is 'rotten in the State of Denmark'.
" In the years I spent there I never once heard anyone refer to Israel as "terrorist" state."
I never once heard actions such as those carried out by Israel down the years - mass murder of refugees, civilians, including women and children, use of chemical and anti-personnel weapons, deliberate targeting of hospitals, schools, old people's homes, mass eviction of people from territory their ancestors have occupied for millennia to make room for a people claiming to have been "bequeathed it by God", forcible settlement of nomads onto toxic rubbish dumps, using chemical sprays and high pressure hoses...... as anything but the actions of a terrorist State.
Probably the most bizarre suggestion ever made by anyone is to claim that acts of terrorism are only such when recognised by politicians (in "decent" countries which have been known to commit such acts themselves) - and then to invent a list of countries supporting these acts.

Compile a list of those people Christmas and apply it to the area in question and you will find that the group that predominates is Jewish - you did after all introduce the timescale. However according to the criteria established by the UN In the period 1923 to 1948 any Arab who can prove that he/she, or any of his/her forefathers had "worked" in the Mandated Territory of Palestine for a period of at least eighteen MONTHS automatically qualified as having a "Right to Return" - the UN body and committee who set that little lot up however did not see fit to set any qualification for any "Right of Return" for any of the 800,000 Jews forcibly stripped of their possessions and deported from Arab countries where they had lived quite peacefully for centuries (If not millennia in some cases). Never once have I ever heard you championing their cause Christmas.

The "reality" is that no nation in the world has supported what Isreal has done - a few of the "decent" (seems to refer to nations on Israel's side) have stayed silent on the atrocities for various reasons, political and economic expediency being the main ones, but nobody has supported the actions of Israel other than the Yanks, with a record of its own human rights abuses as long as your arm.
You produced a list of so-called supporters of israel and were given a bundle of links to statements condemning their behaviour which you are appearing to indicate, do not exist.

Sounds like extremist rights-wing Zionism Terrytoon - the Arabs have too prove they have a right to their lands
Nice political ring to it Mandated territories, doncha think

"fond of ignoring what Einstein had to say and continue to claim that to criticise Israel is 'Antisemitic'"
.,.,
A bit disingenuous, Jim. You sound as if you think there is only one way of criticising Israel, the one which self-questioning Jews like Einstein & me adopt in our disappointment with the way it has turned out. But there are of course many other ways of criticising Israel -- including the one recognised by that UN committee all those years ago which consisted of disguising outright antisemitism as bona-fide criticism of Israel.

You know this. Don't pretend you don't.

particularly the massace of civilians

There was no such thing. One can guess at what motivates you to spread such lies. The blood of every single civilian death in Gaza in squarely on the hands of Hamas. WHY DID HAMAS START A WAR WITH ISRAEL? No one has yet answered that question which has been asked many times.

Where have they supports#ed what Israel has recently done - particularly the massace of civilians - silence is not support

Silence is the response when there is nothing to respond to Jim.

Decent democracies are not silent about war crimes, massacres and human rights abuses.
They denounce them whenever and wherever they happen.
That happens not to be Israel, hence the silence.

But I do have the reservation that HRW sometimes spread their criticism wider than the instances warrant - tarring too many people, or aspects of a regime, with the same brush.

"The enlargement of the European Union on 1st May 2004 has brought a historical shift for the
Union in political, geographic and economic terms. The EU and Israel are now closer together
than ever before and, as near neighbours, will reinforce their political and economic
interdependence. Enlargement offers the opportunity for the EU and Israel to develop an
increasingly close relationship, going beyond co-operation, to involve a significant measure of
economic integration and a deepening of political co-operation. The European Union and
Israel are determined to make use of this occasion to enhance their relations and to promote
stability, security and well-being. The approach is founded on partnership, joint ownership
and differentiation. It will contribute to the further development of our strategic partnership.
The European Neighbourhood Policy of the European Union sets ambitious objectives based
on commitments to shared values and effective implementation of the political, economic,
social and institutional actions agreed to in this Action Plan."

"The EU and Israel share the common values of democracy, respect for human rights and the
rule of law and basic freedoms. Both parties are committed to the struggle against all form of
anti-Semitism, racism and xenophobia. Historically and culturally, there exist great natural
affinity and common heritage. Thus, we strive to build bridges and networks.
Israel has a functioning market economy and a well developed public administration and
public services. This foundation makes Israel well placed to further develop its relationship
with the EU including in the framework of the ENP."

Israel is a beacon of light, a source of democracy and an example to the world, Canadian Foreign Minister Rob Nicholson, on his first visit to Jerusalem, told President Reuven Rivlin on Wednesday (today).

He said he was delighted to be in Israel because he had been interested in the country since he was a kid and had always wanted to come.

Canada has taken a strong stance in support of the coalition and their is a continued presence of Canadian peace-keeping forces in the region, he said.

Canada has supported Israel in the past, does so in the present, and will continue to do so in the future, Nicholson assured Rivlin.

"Canberra will revert to the voting pattern established by John Howard and Alexander Downer: less ambiguous, less apologetic, more straightforward in support of the only democracy in the Middle East.

Bishop has not issued any general voting instructions but she has made it clear she intends to restore the Howard voting pattern and to reverse the votes Rudd changed. She has also made it clear she expects to see every significant Middle East resolution. Nothing will be done by autopilot. Her view is that Australia's vote on each resolution will be decided on its merits but that she will not support any unbalanced, one-sided or unfair resolutions on Israel. As almost all UN resolutions on Israel fall into this category, this is an important statement of principle."

"It's important to understand the underlying dynamics. The UN, in its bureaucracy and voting patterns, is grotesquely biased against Israel. Every year 20 or more completely one-sided resolutions are passed against Israel, while typically nothing is said about North Korea or Iran or Saudi Arabia or any of the other paragons of human rights and democracy among UN members. Many European countries abstain on such resolutions, thinking it's more trouble than it's worth to oppose them outright. Typically, the US, Canada, Israel and a few Pacific countries oppose such resolutions. Under Howard, Australia did too. This was right in principle and also in our interests. It draws us closer to our best friends and makes some contribution, however small, to moving the UN in the direction of the real world.

The alleged damage to our standing by taking a principled position never really amounted to anything. In the years after Canberra became more explicit in its support of Israel we did not lose a single election at the UN, our trade with the Arab Middle East boomed and more Arab countries opened embassies here."

Palestinian jihadis, incited by Hamas and the Abbas regime, are committing acts of terror on the streets of Jerusalem every week. This holy war goes mostly unreported by the international media. Indeed, most Western newspapers are embracing the "Palestinian narrative," whereby Jews are seen as colonists of a Palestinian nation which was stolen off the "Palestinian people" by the British in 1917. The "two-state solution" is a Palestinian plan to turn Judea and Samaria into a terrorist state, from which to strike against Israel and destroy the only Jewish state in the world. Palestinians do not want a state called Palestine. They want a Jew-free Middle East ruled under sharia law.

So because The UN isn't as pro Israel as the likes of Keith would prefer, he gives us quotes of other peoples' opinions about it. "Grotesquely biased against Israel" is an opinion, an opinion not shared by the many people who use their skills, knowledge and diplomatic experience to make up the executive of the UN, nor the ambassadors speaking for their governments.

You find opinions whilst some of us find hard facts.

Some say good old Keith
