that's probably an abuse of the word, as nonsensical as it already is. you might as well say that each clan or iron age tribe in the british isles is its own race. being "black" doesn't have to be a matrilineal thing.

I don't know, are they a race or not?

IF jews == a race THEN Israel is a racist construct which practices ethnic cleansing

IF jews=/= a race THEN anti-semitism doesn't exist, because you can't be racist to people who aren't a race

Really bored of hearing Israelis say "Accusing us of racism is anti-semitic" when it makes no logical sense.

Apartheid isn't really apt, apartheid means racial segregation.
What the Israelis practice is segregation by killing people or forcing them out of their country and segregating them in a different country - thats the definition of ethnic cleansing.

"semitic" itself draped in mythology and pseudoscience from the 1700s.

if you convert to judaism, are you changing your race?

prejudice and discrimination and segregation can exist outside of racial motivation and be directed against many more things and groups.

if you want to talk ancient or even contemporary semitic-speaking people, you're going to have to cover more turf.

I downloaded Telegram in order to see the videos about the conflict that aren't getting posted to places like reddit.

I didn't expect to see so many blown up Arab children. First video I saw someone trying to do chest compressions on a 3 years old who was clearly dead.

I don't think I am going to go back and watch the Palestinian channel again. I really don't need to see that stuff. I bring it up though because to Israel supporters civilian casualties of the bombing is so abstract. Once you see the dead children you will become much less sanguine about the collective punishment.

The IDF and Hamas are both baby killers. I don't want the U.S. to give material support to either side.

Biden/Democrats want to pass an emergency spending bill that includes money for Israel, Ukraine, and our border.

Republicans want to split the Ukraine funding from the Israel one. Their objective is to pass the Israel bill and not pass the Ukraine bill. They are also being clever by tying the increased aid to Israel to equal cuts to funding for the IRS. The goal is to get a bunch of Democrats on the record voting against increased aid to Israel.

National Review interestingly had a few articles saying this was a bad move by Republicans. They fear that if Israel aid has to come at the expense of the American government functioning, Americans will side with... America. NR doesn't want the bill to devolve into a tax policy debate instead of a debate about Hamas and terror. And the longer the debate goes on the further in our memory the attacks will be.

I still think Israel will come out of this more isolated than they were before. I think it is plausible that the aid that gets sent is significantly less than they would normally get sent in this situation. America has changed and maybe our relationship with Israel has too.

Also, remember when Bibi came to our Congress to complain about Obama? I remember.

^ I find it hard to believe the Israelites really had 11,000+ items of firm actionable intel on the precise locations of Hamas members at any moment, good enough to justify dropping bunker busters on residential blocks anyway.
Seems more likely they're carpet bombing using precision munitions to make it not look like carpet bombing.

And if they're really trying to avoid civilian casualties why are they bombing refugee columns and south of the safe line they told refugees to go past?

Israelis drone on about "the UN gave us the land" well they didn't, and this is the land the UN allowed them to form a nation in.

If the US is supplying weapons to Israel, free of charge and with no conditions on their use, and Israel is using them for war crimes doesn't that make the US complicit in war crimes?

https://www.timesofisrael.com/liveblog_ … -by-hamas/

Is the US supplying Israel with targeting information they're using to justify attacks on hospitals, ambulances etc?
If so they're doubly complicit.

Just to be thorough, America, while a huge supporter, is one of many countries who (Australia included) recently renewed declarations of support for Israel.

Despite declining support for Israel among younger voters, Americans have very little power to steer that ship. Our politicians were overwhelmingly in support.

And vote for who? It's going to take a heck of an ideological upheaval (and a ton of money) to remove Republicans and Democrats from supreme power. More actionable probably is the threat of waning control to convince them to alter their platforms. Not the best turning radius though.

I was actually looking for week+ old mac post about how now wasn't the time to tell Israelis to show restraint so I could once again comment on how remarkable the 180 on the matter is and how it's across multiple threads now.

Came across this instead.

Matthew 25 sucks as a parable. Eternal punishment, locking people outside, gnashing of teeth, and money-centric chewing out servants who don't make you enough gold. New Testament even. I know Christians on the left love alluding to feeding the sick and clothing the hungry or whatever, but imo the rest arguably contributes to greater Christian hostility, insularity, exclusion of others, and their maddening sense of patronizing superiority.

It's is one of the reasons I get to politely endure hellfire pamphlets when I'm on my way to buy boxed noodles at the international market. Literally pictures of flame, in color, sometimes overlaid on top of pained faces. How is that portraying "God's love" in a positive light, anyway? That there's this horrible thing allowed to exist that you can avoid only by fulfilling certain conditions? Yikes. Aren't life's struggles already miserable and psychologically taxing enough for some without the sadistic threat/promise of being dumped into a lake of fire to have the skin peeled back and flesh scorched from your bones forever and ever? That's not very Buddy Christ.


Burn! Oh, such a limited imagination.

"The sheep and the goats," lol, how many urban dwellers have so much as been within 20 feet of one of those animals outside a fair or petting zoo. "If only I remembered to bring lamp oil that one time 900,000 years ago." Why can't there be positivity and encouraging of wholesome engagement with community without the threat and promise of certain, dire retribution for not?

Meanwhile, people are enduring the living hell of trying to get a night's sleep with bombs falling on their houses, but I had *checks notes* "bad timing" early on in this here, saying that Israel should chill the heck out before turning up the genocide dial.

Look up the books of Doug Giles. It took me a moment to realize from the summaries that this was actually serious stuff written by a conservative Christian commentator, and not satire. At cursory glance, he's right there on the stereotype. He writes mournfully about "pussification," the positive message of toxicity (whatever that means) and one of his books literally has an axe on the front cover. Maybe a poor choice considering his sometimes nazi-leaning incel company.

Up to this point i have pretty much read every publish word from Doug Giles. His books puts pressure on the reader to do what God is calling you to. This book of all was the most Impactful. It left me with 1. The Desire to take charge of my Prayer Life and be responsible for it. 2. The Desire to be Apex as a provider and protector and to take my role as spiritual leader in my home as serious as a bear attack.

What are these morons up to? Neither is in office of any kind.

This is interesting:

Views on conflict with Palestinians
In 2013, Danon asserted that the Likud party has no place for anyone supporting a peace agreement with the Palestinians. He is opposed to a two-state solution. He argues for extending Israeli sovereignty over the majority of the West Bank.[47][48] Two year prior, in May 2011, Danon advocated that Israel annex all West Bank settlements and "uninhabited areas". He concluded that Israel would bear no responsibility to Palestinians in the West Bank, who would live in their own "unannexed" towns and that this solution would avert the "threat to the Jewish and democratic status of Israel by a growing Palestinian population".[49]

Danon has advocated for punitive attacks against Palestinian civilians and infrastructure, including a suggestion that Israel "delete" one neighborhood in Gaza in response for every rocket launched by Hamas.[50]

In July 2014, Danon advocated cutting off all electricity and fuel supplies to Gaza to induce Hamas to request a cease-fire.[51][52] Subsequently, on August 1, 2014, after the kidnapping of an Israeli soldier, Danon was quoted as saying "If we don't get the soldier back within a few hours we should start levelling Gaza."[53]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danny_Danon

Delete neighbourhoods, cut off water and electricity, level Gaza - its as if they had this all planned out and have been waiting for a handy pretext.

I still believe the ultra-nationalist govt of Netanyahu allowed the attack to happen, expecting maybe one kibbutz and 50-100 people would die - giving them a nice excuse to pound Gaza for as long as they could get away with it and push through their judicial 'reforms'.

Like 9/11 the scale of the attack was bigger than expected and now Netanyahu has a problem.

Protesters mass outside Netanyahu's house as anger grows
JERUSALEM, Nov 4 (Reuters) - Police held back protesters outside the residence of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday, amid widespread anger at the failures that led to last month's deadly attack by Hamas gunmen on communities around the Gaza Strip.

Waving blue and white Israeli flags and chanting "Jail now!", a crowd in the hundreds pushed through police barriers around Netanyahu's residence in Jerusalem.

The protest, which coincided with a poll showing more than three quarters of Israelis believe Netanyahu should resign, underlined the growing public fury at their political and security leaders.
https://www.reuters.com/world/middle-ea … 023-11-04/

If it comes out that he sacrificed 1400-1650 fellow Israelies and 10,000+ Palestinians for his own ambitions this could be bad.
Would they send him off to the Hague to be tried as a war criminal? Interesting times ahead.

National Review keeps running articles defending Israel and calling for all sorts of outlandish things to happen for supporters of Palestine.

I think the right wing advocacy for Israel is actually making me and a lot of other Americans more hostile to the country.
