  •  For me it turns into (7+ / 0-)

    a desire to participate in these forums regardless of the offensive dehumanization that we see here.

    Part of that dehuminization is the demand that one must not  
    being Arab and uppity at the same time.

    one must not be Arab and talk back

    one must not be Arab and express an utter revulsion for the occupying army and all the individuals involved in the occupation.

    no, one must be Arab and at the same time satisfy certain preconditions before being considered human, which includes regularly wishing the occupation thugs well, the poor well armed thugs that they are.
