  1. I'm surprised you are asking for me to back up this information. US Aid to Israel, which is used towards its military is well documented. Key U.S. lawmakers want to boost Israel's $38 billion defense aid package WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. senators who just returned from a trip to Israel called on Tuesday for an increase in the $38 billion in military aid the United States is currently providing Israel, signaling support for more funds for Israeli missile systems. Reuters
  2. $50 million goes to Hamas from Canada? Where did you get that? Any concerns about the $4,000,000,000 that U.S. gives to Israel each year that Israel uses to bomb Palestinians? Or do you not like talking about that?
  3. What if the "fake Palestinians" become Israelis? Oh wait. They won't be able to, because Israel will not allow the "fake Palestinians" to go back to their homes they were kicked out of and there is the law that only gives citizenship to those who consider themselves Jewish.
  4. There needs to be some kind of a revolution. The system is unsustainable. My hopeless side thinks the revolution can only happen if there is some sort of world devastation, either man-made or a large natural disaster. My hopeful side thinks it will be some kind of a technological revolution, where the unsustainable system, being held up by the old and crusty few, who are milking it to the last drop, are pushed aside.
  5. As a libertarian, a small part of me had hopes that Trump would be different and not get involved in military adventures around the world. Of course, that hope quickly evaporated.
  6. You are one if you speak out against what Israel has done. I agree that you cannot try to excuse the actions of one group by using another person's actions. That said, I see that the false context of 50/50 blame is being used here in many of the discussions. To me, the dynamics and the relationship between the Palestinians and Israelis is much different. I see one as the occupier and the other as the occupied. One as the aggressor and the other as the victim. One as the human rights abuser and the other as the abused. Some try to change the facts on the ground, like "Palestinia
  7. I don't think there would be any issue with the wall if it was within the internationally recognized Israeli territory. The problem with the legality of the wall is that it cuts well into Palestinian land. In some cases, the wall isolates and separates Palestinian land from other Palestinian areas, including schools and hospitals. Many, including myself, see the wall not just as a defensive measure, but also as a way to continue to annex Palestinian land. I would disagree with your assessment that the Palestinians are their own worst enemy. I would argue their worst enemy
  8. If you like facts, then: The General Assembly cannot pass legally binding resolutions over international issues, the United Nations Security Council, which has the authority to do so, has passed a total of six Security Council resolutions on Israel on the matter, including UNSC resolution 478 which affirmed that the enactment of the 1980 Basic Jerusalem Law declaring unified Jerusalem as Israel's "eternal and indivisible" capital, was a violation of international law. The resolution advised member states to withdraw their diplomatic representation from the city. The Security Council, as w
  9. It's not up to Israel to annex land that doesn't belong to them. Israel is made up of West and East Jerusalem. East Jerusalem does not belong to Israel. Majority of the world agrees with that, including the Canadian government.
  10. Canada will not move embassy to Jerusalem, federal government says A government official told The Globe and Mail on Tuesday that Canada will keep its embassy in Tel Aviv. The official also said Canada still does not recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital city
  11. I never said anyone should be given a pass. I'm not sure why you have a difficult time understanding what I am saying. In every single post, you have gone out of your way to make false accusations. Your argument is that the Mufti had a very large role in the holocaust and he was the leader of the Palestinians - Even though you claim Palestinians didn't really exist until well after World War II. My argument, which coincides with the majority, including many in Israel, is that the Mufti had a very minimal role. That he wasn't even accepted as the leader of the Palestinians by many Pa
  12. Netanyahu was correct when? When he said Hitler wasn't planning to kill the Jews until the Mufti pushed him towards "the final solution"? Or when he retracted the comment? Which Netanyahu do you agree with?
  13. You're not an easy person to have a conversation with because you continuously make false accusations. Once again you are insinuating that I am apologizing for the Mufti or the Nazis, when I'm not. When Netanyahu made his comment about the Mufti's role in the holocaust, he was scorched in Israel by many people. Even Germany came out refuting Netanyahu's comment. Even Netanyahu ended up retracting his own statement. "Contrary to the impression that was created, I did not mean to claim that in his conversation with Hitler in November 1941 the Mufti convinced him to adopt the
  14. Yes. Minimal. If you take the largest figure, the Mufti recruited 20,000 soldiers. During WWII there were 13 million soldiers who served the German army. Don't you think that's minimal? Plus, as much as he wanted to be, the Mufti was never really fully accepted as the representative of the Palestinians. He sort of just appointed himself and was the de facto leader of the Palestinians for just a few years. He was never liked by most other groups and had a difficult time staying in Palestine. Who defended the Nazis? I don't get your comment. All I am saying is that the M
  15. al-Husseini was certainly involved, but his role was minimal and he was not part of the decision to "exterminate the Jews." He was an outcast who wanted to escape going to prison and ended up in Germany. Besides a few photos of him meeting Hitler, there is no real evidence that he was 'responsible for the holocaust'. That's just not true. Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amin_al-Husseini#Post-War_Palestinian_Political_Leadership Peter Novick has argued that the post-war historiographical depiction of al-Husseini reflected complex geopolitical interests that distorted the record.
