Gaza rockets, Israeli air strikes persist despite truce call

Comments (65)

I do not condone this sort of tit-for-tat violence, but I can understand it.

Looks like Theodor Herzl’s utopian scheme to save the world’s Jews from assimilation and/or annihilation is not working out as advertised.

The intent was noble; but Herzl ignored a basic law of nature: Concentration of a population invites extinction – Dispersal of a population insures survival.

Apparently, the idea of creating a Jewish homeland, for the world’s unwanted Jews, in the middle of Muslim country, in the nuclear age was ill-conceived, to say the least.

Israel, today, is a nuclear-scofflaw, UN-Resolution-ignoring, Jewish theocracy. Israel shares core values with the defunct Confederate States of America, not the United States of America.

Jews have special privileges in the Occupied Territories, (the West Bank and East Jerusalem); but, the Arab Muslims living there are systematically oppressed by the Israeli occupiers.

There can be no lasting peace without a modicum of justice.

The “Iranian threat” is an Israeli canard; it is a distraction from the fact the Israeli government is building thousands of Jews-Only housing units on stolen Arab land in the Occupied Territories.

The US generously bankrolls the scofflaw Jewish state, making this apartheid situation possible… this is one of the major reasons that so many hate the USA.

Nobody actually believes the notion that the US is an “impartial broker” in the Israel-Arab peace talks; the Israel lobby controls the US Congress and the POTUS….and Israel-friendly elements own and operate the major US media… check out the Israel lobby sleaze here:

@IslamBlows:

The PLO did recognize Israel’s right to exist, in 1993, in Oslo; but, the Israelis proceeded to move the goal posts, they demanded more.

The demand creep went from simple recognition of Israel’s right to exist to recognizing “Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state”.

PM Netanyahu has recently expanded that modified demand. Now, the Pals must recognize “Israel’s right to exist as the national homeland of the Jewish people”.

That demand includes the idea that the Palestinian refugees, displaced to create the Jewish state in Palestine, will never be allowed to return to their homes in what is now Israel and the OTs.

These unreasonable Israeli demands and preconditions will result in abject failure of the current peace talks. Another Intifada could be in the works; frustration will take its natural course: Violence.

Just to clear the air a bit:

The Israelis SAY that Iran was the supplier of the Syrian-made missiles, but we have yet to see the proof.

The Israelis SAY that they were PROBABLY bound for Gaza, but again we have no proof.

The sequence of events in Gaza starts with an Israeli incursion into Gaza, followed by a mortar round shot by Islamic jihad, followed by Israel killing 3 “terrorists” in Gaza, followed by the rockets you mention.

If I were you I’d be attacking the leadership of Israel, not that of the US.

Vulture, you Israeli hasbarat, here are the facts: The UN Partitioned Palestine into a Jewish part and an Arab part, in 1948. From Wiki: “The resolution recommended the creation of independent Arab and Jewish States and the Special International Regime for the City of Jerusalem.” No mention of a Jewish and a Turkish part; where did you schlep that in from?

You pulled that one out of your nether regions, Vulture, you just destroyed what little credibility you had here.

Arafat and the PLO recognized Israel’s right to exist, in 1993… the demand has been increased since then, the Arabs must now recognize “Israel’s right to exist, as the national homeland of the Jewish people”.

To use a sports analogy, Israel moved the goal posts; they don’t play by the rules… they never did, they assassinated the first UN peace envoy, Count Bernadotte, in 1948… as Chief of the Swedish Red Cross, during WW2, Bernadotte had saved thousands of Jews from the Nazi gas chambers, the Israelis are supreme ingrates… and you still shill for them… why?

Sorry I don’t see a deed that passes through “arabs” for ownership of that lnad
Ottoman, turkish grants,British Mandate ISrael . only in 21st is there a so called state of Palestine and they are w/o stated borders that are recognized by that UN.

Vulture, you are wrong; here is a cut-paste, from Wiki, of the letter that Arafat sent to PM Rabin; Please note that Arafat agreed to, “the right of the State of Israel to exist in peace and security.” Arafat did not recognize “the Jewish state of Israel”, as you claim.

Here’s the text of Arafat’s letter:

September 9, 1993
Yitzhak Rabin
Prime Minister of Israel

Mr. Prime Minister,

The signing of the Declaration of Principles marks a new era…I would like to confirm the following PLO commitments: The PLO recognizes the right of the State of Israel to exist in peace and security. The PLO accepts United Nations Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338. The PLO commits itself…to a peaceful resolution of the conflict between the two sides and declares that all outstanding issues relating to permanent status will be resolved through negotiations…the PLO renounces the use of terrorism and other acts of violence and will assume responsibility over all PLO elements and personnel in order to assure their compliance, prevent violations and discipline violators…the PLO affirms that those articles of the Palestinian Covenant which deny Israel’s right to exist, and the provisions of the Covenant which are inconsistent with the commitments of this letter are now inoperative and no longer valid. Consequently, the PLO undertakes to submit to the Palestinian National Council for formal approval the necessary changes in regard to the Palestinian Covenant.

Sincerely,
Yasser Arafat.
Chairman: The Palestine Liberation Organization.

Here is the text of Rabin’s reply:

September 9, 1993
Yasser Arafat
Chairman: The Palestine Liberation Organization.

Mr. Chairman,
In response to your letter of September 9, 1993, I wish to confirm to you that, in light of the PLO commitments included in your letter, the Government of Israel has decided to recognize the PLO as the representative of the Palestinian people and commence negotiations with the PLO within the Middle East peace process.

Yitzhak Rabin.
Prime Minister of Israel.

There you have it, Vulture, Israel reneged on the deal, they eventually demanded more… the Palestinians are justifiably angered by Israel’s perfidy.

Mar 13, 2014 3:27pm EDT  --  Report as abuse

Vulture, as for your claim about, “the British Mandate of Israel”, there never was such a place. The contested area was known officially as, “the British Mandate of Palestine”.

Before 1948, the term, “Israel” referred to the Jewish people collectively. The Bible used the term, “Israel” to refer the Jewish people, not to a piece of real estate.

A land called, “Israel” never existed, until May 15, 1948… the Romans called the place, “Palestinae”… Google it and educate yourself, you are making a fool of yourself on these boards… but, I must admit it, debunking your BS is quite enjoyable.

But now you claim they are arab lands and that Jordanian land titles are valid. sorry invalid custody of title and there invalid transfer.

I agree with those who are calling for boycotts, divestment and sanctions against the nuclear-scofflaw, apartheid regime in Israel. The only things that Israeli Jews understand are financial consequences… they need to suffer for the consequences of their apartheid policies… no more financial umbilical cords to the Holocaust-guilt-ridden West.

I would just like to point out that during the UN trying to make an Israel and Palestine that it was the ARABS not the Jews who rejected the deal in the first place. This lead to Israel fighting for its right to exist and as such, created its own country. Because the UN mandate never went through, Israel can theoretically take land in wars for its own territorial gain(not saying the West Bank settlements are legal but just for reference). Thus why Israel can do the things it does and why it can exist. If peace is to happen, then organizations like Hezbollah must be eliminated because they only irritate the problem and not help in anyway toward peace.

If so, you have a thin skin, my friend. You might want to change your username, if you are insulted by that post.

Hey, when I see, “vulture”, I think, “carrion”… you got the name, so, play the game. It could be worse, I could be calling you, “Tex”.

My goal in posting is to find common ground with those with whom I disagree; chances are good, that we share some values, beliefs, concepts and opinions.

BTW, I never think of myself as a terrorist sympathizer or an anti-Semite. As I said in my opening post, I do NOT condone acts of terror, but I do understand the frustration that leads to violence.

If I hated Jews, I would be a huge fan of the idea of concentrating the world’s Jews into a tiny piece of contested real estate, in the nuclear age.

President Truman should have invited the world’s Jews to settle in the USA, after the war ended; he didn’t.

Bankrolling and arming the militant Zionists with US taxpayer monies is a clear violation of the US Constitution; the secular-minded American Founders knew the value of separation between church and state. Truman and the US Congress ignored the sage advice of the Founders.

Surely, you would agree with me, Vulture, that what’s good for Israel is not always good for the USA and what is bad for Israel is not always bad for the USA…and the converse of that is also true. I mean, what’s good for TX might be bad for NY and vice versa, right?

So, I am an “America Firster”, the USA has its own national interests, interests that often are not congruent with, or are in conflict with the national interests of the Likud government currently ruling the Jewish state.

Bottom line: I am an American patriot.

Sorry that the truth hurts, but there are very close similarities in the way the Nazis Party treated the Jews in the 30′s and 40′s and the way the Likud Party is treating the Palestinians in the West Bank today. Confiscation of property, destruction of businesses, detentions without charge, violence against persons and property with impunity, creation of ghettos, etc.

Not only do I condemn terrorism I condemn state acts of terrorism as conducted by the current Israeli government. I condemn the disgusting abuse of the Holocaust tragedy in order to cover for Israeli crimes. I condemn the abuse of the word “terrorist” to cover for Israeli crimes, like the judge that was killed recently for resisting Israeli abuse while boarding a bus. I condemn the blatant violations of international law and human rights by the Israeli government. I have no reason to condemn Jews, but I condemn the likes of you who defend and cover for the criminal acts of the current Israeli government.

at rgbviews If other Arab countries break international law by discriminating against Jews (for Ex. a Jew can’t purchase land in Jordan, a country they have a peace treaty with by the way) then why should Israel care much for international law either? One cannot just pick & choose, which also sinks their credibility.

” it was the ARABS not the Jews who rejected the deal in the first place.”

The “deal” as put to the Arabs was you lose your ancestral property and we give it to Jewish foreigners who are arriving by the boatload.. Some deal!

If the roles were reversed I’m sure the Jews would have resisted the invasion.

I think international law deals with relationships between countries and does not interfere with legislation inside individual countries. Many countries have legislation limiting land ownership, and for various reasons. I don’t like restrictions based on religious beliefs, whether it be in Jordan or Israel, but this has nothing to do with international law.

At rgbviews, International law also deals with human right abuses & individual freedoms, ESPECIALLY of those concerning minorities in other countries. Until countries like Jordan (or even Saudi Arabia)can respect individual freedoms, or at least even acknowledge the state of Israel why should Israel recognize a Palestinian state? A lot of times some Arab countries will show a map without Israel on it!! So yes this does involve international law. aparthied inscribed in law (in Jordan for example) violates international law. Then again only a dirtbag such as yourself would not realize that again reflectin your low IQ.
