  1. You can listen to Bob's foaming from the mouth or you can visit the web site and find out more about these Jewish Organizations yourselves: http://jewishvoiceforpeace.com/ http://www.youngjewishproud.org/ Racist Zionist Jews such as Bob, who is part of the problem by living in the illegal settlements in East Jerusalem know that things are changing. More and more Jews are speaking out against the racist, unjust and illegal treatment of the Palestinians by the Zionist government. The biggest change is apparent in North America.
  2. Our Young, Jewish, and Proud leaders made headlines around the world when they disrupted Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech at the country's largest gathering of Jewish leaders in New Orleans. We have struck a nerve among Jews everywhere and among people who care about human rights.
  3. Is this how you justify comparing Israel's military actions and violations of international law to Canada? By saying they are both Sovereign? How is being a sovereign state justify violating human rights and committing war crimes? It's too bad that Israel would not be able to continue doing what it's doing without the extremely generous economic and political help from the United States.
  4. Issuing a 50/50 blame game may seem like the right thing to do to distance yourself from being considered biased, but sometimes it's okay to be biased towards the truth. The truth is that the ball is in Israel's court and they're the ones who can change the course of this conflict by following international law. There is nothing wrong with being brutally honest and saying that, in this day and age, everything else happening is a reaction (accessory) to Israel's behaviour towards the Palestinians and their rights.
  5. It's not a theory. It's what the system is about. Kennedy/Johnson (1961-1964) Spending Grew by 6.5% YoY (Year over Year) Spending Grew by 5.28% YoY (Inflation Adjusted) Lyndon B. Johnson (1965-1968) Spending Grew by 10.93% YoY Spending Grew by 7.74% YoY (Inflation Adjusted) Richard Nixon (1969-1972) Spending Grew by 6.7% YoY Spending Grew by 1.97% YoY (Inflation Adjusted) Nixon/Ford (1973-1976) Spending Grew by 12.85% YoY Spending Grew by 4.44% YoY (Inflation Adjusted) Jimmy Carter (1977-1980) Spending Grew by 12.32% YoY Spending Grew by 2.37% YoY (Inflation Adjusted) Ronald Reagan, First Term (1981-1984) Spending Grew by 9.62% YoY Spending Grew by 3.46% YoY (Inflation Adjusted Ronald Reagan, Second Term (1985-1988) Spending Grew by 5.79% YoY Spending Grew by 2.33% YoY (Inflation Adjusted) George H. W. Bush (1989-1992) Spending Grew by 6.75% YoY Spending Grew by 2.24% YoY (Inflation Adjusted) Bill Clinton, First Term (1993-1996) Spending Grew by 3.1% YoY Spending Grew by 0.31% YoY (Inflation Adjusted) Bill Clinton, Second Term (1997-2000) Spending Grew by 3.48% YoY Spending Grew by 1.15% YoY (Inflation Adjusted) George W. Bush, First Term (2001-2004) Spending Grew by 6.41% YoY Spending Grew by 4.02% YoY (Inflation Adjusted) George W. Bush, Second Term (2005-2008) Spending Grew by 6.82% YoY Spending Grew by 3.4% YoY (Inflation Adjusted) Barack Obama (2009-2012) Spending Expected to Grow by 6.71% YoY (according to White House projections) Put down the pompom's. They're all the same.
  6. Bush may have preached 'lower taxes' but his spending was through the roof. How can you lower taxes when you're going to spend billions on unnecessary wars and a big government? Don't you guys realize that you're always cheering for and going against two teams that are pretty much the same? Put down the pompoms and start looking for alternatives to the same people you keep alternating in the office.
  7. I am no fan of Iggy, but he's correct to say that the Conservative government does not deserve a seat at the United Nations Security Council. When the Harper government decided not to condemn Israel after the Goldstone Report which concluded that Israel committed war crimes during its attack on Gaza, he showed his true colours. Respect for international law and human rights should be a priority. Harper lacks that.
  8. He is obviously making fun of Americans like you who are complacent and pretend that it's okay for your government to hand out welfare money to another country with 0 benefit to you.
  9. It's like saying, attacking Israel may save many innocent people from incineration at the hands of a group of madmen. You do not miss an opportunity to salivate and advocate military attacks against anyone who criticizes Israel. By the way, why should anyone take this Radical Leftist Lawyer thing seriously? You're neither a leftist or a man who respects law. Perhaps you should just leave the word Radical there.
  10. Israel's military hierarchy has been cleared of significant wrongdoing after an inquiry concluded that the deadly naval raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla six weeks ago was error-free. The probe, conducted by the Israeli armed forces and led by a retired general, found that there was more to praise than to condemn in the naval operation that claimed the lives of nine Turkish activists on board the flotilla's lead ship, the Mavi Marmara. In his report, General Giora Eiland lauded the "professionalism, bravery and resourcefulness" of the commandos involved in the raid and ruled that the use of live fire was "justified". "To my relief, the investigation found no negligence of failures on any significant matters," Gen Eiland told reporters after submitting his report. Link This is from a couple of months ago but it's still funny.
  11. It doesn't matter what organization or which person it is, the blind supporters of Israeli policy, will go to any length to try to discredit those groups who criticize Israel. One of the worst displays was the reaction towards Judge Goldstone, a zionist and one of the most respected and experienced international figures in international law and human rights. It's quite pathetic. United Nations, 1947, Resolution 181 approves the creation of Israel, the Jewish State Link Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme Link General Assembly Resolution 273 11 May 1949 General Assembly Resolution 273 welcomed the State of Israel as a full member of the United Nations. The resolution states: “Israel is a peace-loving State and is able and willing to carry out the obligations contained in the Charter [of the United Nations].” Resolution 273 signified Israel’s acceptance into the community of nations. Link Security Council Resolution 1559 2 September 2004 UN Security Council Resolution 1559 calls upon Lebanon to establish its sovereignty over all of its land and for “foreign forces” to withdraw from Lebanon and cease intervention in the internal politics of Lebanon. Link General Assembly Resolution 60/7, “Holocaust Remembrance” 1 November 2005 Resolution 60/7 was a landmark resolution for the United Nations and for Holocaust Remembrance. For the first time, the General Assembly designated 27 January –– the day that the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp was liberated in 1945 –– as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Link
  12. Israel's military broke international laws during a raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla, a UN Human Rights Council investigation says. Its report said the action by commandos, which left nine dead, was "disproportionate" and "betrayed an unacceptable level of brutality". It said there was clear evidence to support prosecutions against Israel for "wilful killing". In a 56-page report, the UN panel of three international lawyers said: "There is clear evidence to support prosecutions of the following crimes within the terms of article 147 of the Fourth Geneva Convention: wilful killing; torture or inhuman treatment; wilfully causing great suffering or serious injury to body or health". The Convention is an international treaty governing the protection of civilians in times of war. The UN fact-finding mission also said the Israeli blockade of the Palestinian territory was "unlawful" because of a humanitarian crisis there. BBC Israel, of course, gave their typical response to investigations that find Israel to have broken international law.
  13. Red Herring. It is/was required by the Palestinians to accept Israel's right to exist as according to resolution 242. They did. Anything else is just more tactical stalling and more excuse by Israel to continue to annex more land. After this comment, nothing else you say has any credibility. If you cannot recognize the large problem with the settlements and the annexation of Palestinian land, then you're also a problem.
