    Israel has an illegal occupation in the West Bank, is running an illegal siege in Gaza, & is rounding up & imprisoning African refugees. getting them ready for deportation, because of fears the refugees will alter the Jewish nature of Israel.
    How's that?

      the Occupation of the West Bank is legal. Gaza started a war of aggression against Israel, and the African refugees are there illegally.

      That's better.

        I'll provide you with some valuable information.

        This is an Adalah community diary. If you have a reaction to the diary and wish to share it on the interwebs, please ensure that  your response is civil, on-topic and that your points are substantiated. If you don't like the diary or the diarist or a comment someone is making, you have the choice of moving on and not posting a response.

        I would also consider it bad form to be putting silly comments like this one 5 days after the diary was initially published. Particularly since you are echoing right-wing talking points. For example, your view of the occupation is the same as that of the Levy Committee which have been condemned by left-wing groups in Israel like Yesh Din. As for your execrable views on the African refugees, the point is that they are refugees and should be cared for according to international treaty obligations. This is a Democratic blog. We don't like right-wing talking points from any country. If you have a problem with that, take it up with Markos.

          So only members of the community may respond with positive agreement to what is being said? Hmmmm....
