pete why is it antisemitic to oppose israeli violations of the rights of the palestians? 040310
...
a thimble in time In of itself, there is nothing inherently anti-Semitic about claiming that Israel has violated a fundamental "human right". Rather it is the context which deems it necessary.

For example, in the UN, we often hear countries, such as Syria, Iran, Egypt, and Jordan, scolding Israel for violating human rights. Moreover, these accusations, true or not, are often followed by UN resolutions condemning Israel. However, a brief glimpse at Syria, Iran, Egypt, or Jordans' track records on their treatment of women, minorities, or their tolerance of homosexuals and members of other religious faiths, or (even!) their behavior toward their Palestinian citizens will show that, at the very least, their policies deserve just as much if not more criticism than Israel. But this is simply not the case.

World attention let's totalitarian Syria off with a slap on the wrist -- if I'm not mistaken, Syria still holds a seat on the UN Comm. on Human Rights -- while slamming Israel every time it tries to defend itself against suicide bombers.

Of the several billion people who inhabit the world, the borders of Israel contain approximately 8.5 million of them, which is roughly the number of people living in Metropolitan New York. A sizeable number, to say the least, but not quite India, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Columbia, or China.

Despite the numerous wars and famines, poverty and malnutrition, which continue to plague millions of men, women, and children across the globe, Israel remains the focal point of world criticism for problems, which are although certainly important, they don't compare to the problems which effect the entire globe.

The gross disparity between the behavior of Israel and the attention she receives, the irony of her accusers being the most prevailing abusers of human rights, are the two primal reasons why Israel and her allies often charge anti-Semitism.

never_is_always is not a simple thing
to the Jews it is a homeland that could mean an end to millenias of persecution

to the Palestinians it is a home that was taken from them

to its neighbors it is an abomination that is not a nation, but rather an occupying force

to me it is a dillema

mikejohnson israel is not a headline. it is a country that jews can turn to the next time the world decides it's time to get rid of them. it is a place where 5 million jews and 1 million arabs and a handful of every other type of person imaginable try to get some shwarma and mango juice for dinner and watch soccer on tv afterwards and fall asleep to their favorite israeli musicians or reading their favotire israeli authors. they speak on their cell phones to their sons and daughters in the army and yell at store clerks that "THAT WAS ON SALE!" they tell it like it is and do it when they're not supposed to.

The soul of a Jew yearns,
And forward to the East
To Zion, an eye looks

The hope of two thousand years,
To be a free nation in our land,
The land of Zion and Jerusalem.

minnesota_chris it's that concept of "our land" that always sets me off. I don't like anyone saying it anywhere. If any group said that America is "our land" it would make me just as mad. Think about it... white people calling America "our land"? 050302

mikejohnson ya, nobody should have a land to call their own. And then they think they can try and sustain a modern culture and economy while defending their citizens from any multitude of organizations that seek its destruction? Why can't they just share?

Naomi This is ridiculous. Why is everyone so arrogant towards Israel? Israel is trying to save the world from the deadliest nation. Look what they did to the once rich and beautiful land of Israel. Their portion looks like a desert. And not to mention how Israel destroyed the last bomb Iran was making. Although of course, everyone was scandalized at first, they realized that Israel had just saved them. And now history will repeat itself. Who do you think is going to try to destroy the bomb again? Not Canada, or the United States for sure. Or anyone in Europe. It will be Israel. 060418

pete It is hard to look kindly on a state made up of the descendants of a people brutally slaughtered as they commit atrocities upon new generations of people. How many towns, villages, and counties were ethnically cleansed to create a state in the name of ending ethnic cleansing? One is not right for doing on to others what was done onto themselves. One is not right for playing word games to justify the various atrocities founded in petty justifications of 'religion' or 'nationalism'.

Israel stands apart among the community of nations. Her people have suffered. Her people inflict suffering on others. Her people suffer as a result of a mutual system of hate, justified with word games, and brickmanship, justified with word games, and hypocrisy, justified with word games and personified when war criminals held her highest office.

Those who have suffered the most are the most blameworthy when they inflict similiar suffering upon others. Those who declared "never again" are most blameworthy when they allow it to happen again and again and again and again and again.

Not that the Palestinians hands are clean: they inflict atrocities in turn on those who make political community a near impossibility, and those who take their land, and those who are playing the Imperialist Colonisers role in a game of Colonisation.

And yet, in the end, how many bodies must be piled before one side will raise its hands in willing peace?

Goddamned Historical Consequences of Historical Mistakes Justified by False Word Games Used to Stop the Suffering of Some Only to Impose it on Others.

I hope that is unclear.

bunny israel is an irresponsible power, how quickly jews forgot about the holocaust, bringing it up only when it's convenient for them however mass-killing so many innocent people. no one in their right mind could deny that the state of israel has the right to defend itself from those who attack them but the way they are doing it... bombing hospitals, power plants, refugee camps for fuck's sake. not a measured response at all to what started this particular conflict. israel is basically making the whole country of lebanon its hostage. everyone will like to see terrorism stop but we must be realistic and understand that israel needs to get out palestine, at least gaza and west bank and give them [palestinians] their dignity back before that can occur.

greed and power fucked you over.
