Good smiting, God!


We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.

Then they bombed the tunnels with ground-penetrating weapons to blow them up. They knew Hamas would not let civilians into their tunnels.

Never forgot Benjamin Netanyahu having the gall to come to our country and undermining a sitting president by giving a Republican-sponsored vanity speech to a Joint Session.

Hmm


Contrarian, extraordinaire

Many people are saying that antifa and BLM do the same thing!

Trying to make the apartheid state of Israel sound humane in their careful and judicious bombing of the occupied territory is pretty pathetic.

They have become the Nazis who once tried to exterminate them.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

I'm not trying to justify anything Israel does. I'm just pointing out that Hamas' tactics get innocent civilians killed. Shooting their crappy missiles into Israel ALWAYS results in a lot more Palestinians be killed than Israelis. A whole lot more. There have to be some better tactics.

I would love to see either a two-state solution in which Israel stops occupying Palestine, or a one-state solution where Palestinians all become Israeli citizens and can create a coalition government with the Israeli liberals. Instead conservatives want to keep on fighting an eternal war because either actual solution would strip them of power.

What ever happened to 90 day psychiatric holds for delusional people who present a danger to themselves or others? I think there's a whole bunch of these folks running around loose right now. Get out the men in white coats, round those loonies up, and pump them full of Thorazine. After 90 days, they can figure out who's still crazy and who has some connection to reality so they can give those guys ankle monitors and prescriptions to chase away those voices in their heads.

Mostly they are for 72 hours.

And I'm just pointing out that it is Israelis who do the killing.

I'm sure if the US was under occupation by a foriegn power everyone would lay down and do exactly as they were told. We would patiently await a one or two state solution where we could become second class citizens in our own homeland.

They are second-class (or lower) citizens now. Either solution would be much better. Certainly it is Israelis who are killing them. Us sitting here agreeing that Israel is doing bad stuff does not get fewer of them killed. Israel needs to get out of the occupied territory, and stop blockading and worse to Gaza. There can never be peace until they do.

But in the meantime, people in Gaza are shooting BB guns at guys across the border with Uzis. Not smart. This is like sending the Kurds to fight Iran. It's just going to piss them off, and you never get to a peaceful solution agreeable to both sides. And agreement is critical, if you want peace to last. Seen Israel and Egypt fighting lately? No because they agree that peace benefits them both.
