  1. These Israeli cowards are shooting children, doctors and paramedics. Including this Canadian doctor - The paramedic who helped him didn't survive the sniper shot:
  2. Always the first to excuse bloodshed and crimes against humanity! Way to go buddy!
  3. When I say "two-sided", I mean the narrative created is that it's 50/50. Tit for tat. This is not the situation. Israel is surrounded by people who hate them. Some of this hate can be seen as justified, considering what the Israeli government has been doing to the Palestinians. However, the countries surrounding Israel are not a threat to Israel. Perhaps many decades ago, but this is not the case. There is coordination between most of the countries surrounding them. Hamas is a product of the decades long occupation. They came to be in the early 90's. A group like Hamas would either not exist or it would be non-relevant if Israel did not treat the Palestinians the way it does. When the Jews were imprisoned in Auschwitz and other ghettos, there were groups who rose against the Nazis. Hamas and other groups are no different. Between 1941 and 1943, underground resistance movements developed in approximately 100 ghettos in Nazi-occupied eastern Europe (about one-fourth of all ghettos), especially in Poland, Lithuania, Belorussia, and the Ukraine. Their main goals were to organize uprisings, break out of the ghettos, and join partisan units in the fight against the Germans. Link
  4. Canada has a terrible record and history when it comes to their treatment of the First Nations. That's in the past. Canada is trying to make amends and even though it's moving slowly, it is moving towards the right direction. The simple problem with your argument is that the treatment of Palestinians today, by Israel, would never be accepted by Canadians if it were done to the First Nations. Unless you have something new to add to your ridiculous argument, this case is closed.
  5. It's amazing to me how something so one-sided is pushed to be seen as two-sided. Palestinians, especially the ones in Gaza are held in an open-aired prison. They have no control over their borders, air and the sea. They have no control over what goes in and out of their tiny piece of land. They are surrounded by a trigger happy military who is backed by a criminal government.
  6. What are you talking about? We don't pretend that the First Nations did not live here or don't exist.

    High Taxes driving high earners south

    It's not taxes that are driving some workers down south. It's the free market that determines salary.
  8. Translation: People who have lived there for centuries and who had their land stolen from them are just a myth and don't deserve to have a state there, but European settlers who moved to that land, are magically the eternal owners of the land and deserve to have a state of their own. The chutzpah to suggest such a narrative is beyond ridiculous.
  9. You are spreading misinformation again. The law of return in Israel only requires that the person is Jewish. Whereas these other countries, like Japan, require that you are the child of a Japanese citizen. Meaning that a person who has no family ties to Israel, can gain citizenship in Israel, only because they are Jewish.
  10. Here is some good news: Natalie Portman has publicly refused to travel to Israel for the Genesis award, leading the entire ceremony to be canceled. In a statement she said "[r]ecent events in Israel have been extremely distressing to her and she does not feel comfortable participating in any public events in Israel” and that “she cannot in good conscience move forward with the ceremony." Israel's brand has become so toxic that even well-known Israeli-American cultural figures, like Natalie Portman, now refuse to blatantly whitewash, or art-wash, Israeli crimes and apartheid policies.

  11. They impeached Clinton? I agree though, the MSM loves to pretend it's above tabloids, but it's the same shit. I'm more interested in Trump's business deals with foreign actors and how that influences his decision making. This is similar to the Clintons and the Clinton foundation, but at a much bigger scale. I bet if we were in the Clinton years right now, Betsy would be all over the Monica Lewinsky story and asking for Clinton's head.

    Iran needs some democracy

    Iran does need regime change. But what kind of regime change? Through the same type of regime change that U.S. has initiated in the past (ie: Afghanistan/Iraq/Libya) or is there another way? As history has shown, the Boltons will put Iran in a much more shittier position than they are now in. Can Iran change without explosions and fireworks? I compare Iran now to what it was like in the past, and it seems like it is slowly moving towards the right direction - maybe? I am only going with what some of the Iranians I know are saying. But Iranians are very diverse, especially politically, and the perspectives are different. I see a country like China and the changes we have seen in the past 20 years. Opening up to the world market forced China to change its culture. I can see Iran being able to do that as well. Especially with its highly educated population, who are already well connected to the Western world. I believe open economic channels can continue to make the mullahs irrelevant.

    Iran needs some democracy

    It's more than that with MEK. It wasn't that they went against just the government, they also killed innocent civilians through bombs and explosions and of course, the military they created in conjunction with Saddam.

    Iran needs some democracy

    MEK is to Iran as Chalabi was to Iraq. Bolton is one of the architects and advocates of the Iraq war. He is also on the payroll by MEK and neo-con organizations. I'm not sure why you're trying to shrug his history and association off and give him a pass. I understand your hate for the Iranian regime. I don't know anyone who doesn't have a hate for these mullahs, but I really hope that this hate does not blind you to what could happen to Iran if Bolton and the neo-cons get their way. Here is an article that sheds light into who Bolton's association with the MEK.
