    so you want to erase Israel from the pages of time? UNcreate it, you think that would set things right?

    I don't think I want to hear HOW you want to do that.

    But while you are righting old wrongs, how about un creating (say) Pakistan, which was created in a disputed partition with much suffering around the same time?  Or to go back a bit farther, maybe you can uncreate the annoying, extralegally founded state of Utah?

      If, in our efforts to win, we become as dishonest as our opponents on the right, we don't deserve to triumph.

    •  Atrocities are happening right now (0+ / 0-)

      The Middle East countries are about to take the problem into their own hands because the West refuses to do anything.  Your comment illustrates that stasis.

      We're not going to like how the Middle East solves the Israel problem but their backs are up against the wall.  You can't blame them for protecting themselves against Israeli aggression.

        You would not know what aggression is if it hit you with a two by four!

        •  Tell that to the Palestinians (0+ / 0-)

          Tell them you don't believe Israel is aggressive.

          •  Or the Turks (0+ / 0-)

            or the Egyptians.

            Israel and its supporters may be winning the moral battle in their own minds, but the rest of the world is becoming less and less convinced.

            Of course the rest of the world is idiotic and anti-Semitic, so Israel and its supporters will win that moral battle in their own minds, too.

            •  It's theft, it's murder and it's wrong (0+ / 0-)

              That's what I don't get.  Because Israel is committing atrocities against humanity, no one can speak out against it without being called an anti-Semite so they just get away with killing and stealing.

              No one is waking up in the morning saying they want to be a terrorist.  Instead, they're desperate.  They want to be free.

              Yes, the whole point is to send Israel packing back to Europe or wherever they want to go.  That's the only way Palestine will be free.  We'll have to do it little by little and we're making progress despite your claim it's anti-Semitic to want to stop Israeli atrocities against humanity.

              The whole world is looking at Obama and if he vetoes Palestinian statehood, we'll know what side of morality the US stands.

              Is he more than words?  It's time that he makes a decision.

              •  My statement that the rest of the world (0+ / 0-)

                is anti-Semitic was sarcasm.

                And I don't think the whole point is to send Israel packing back to Europe. I'm still a firm believer in the two-state solution, however difficult that is becoming.

                •  Two-state solution (0+ / 0-)

                  Is just temporary.  The people of the world who are moral will finally be able to admit that the two-state solution is simply unsustainable when one side is stealing and killing the other side.

                  We can finally come to the true debate and remove Israel from its unlawful lands and restore justness.

                  It's been a long fight but this week is going to set humanity free!

                    thread attached to a four-day-old diary would suggest that you are dickishly stirring-the-shit and perhaps also unwilling to air these views in a recent diary where more eyes (and HRing fingers) will see them. Is that your ideal of 'moral' behavior?
